Taking doctors to task for absenting themselves from work, government has dismissed over a thousand medicos from service. 1,053 doctors, missing from work for nearly two decades without informing the authorities, have been dismissed from service following an approval from Uttar Pradesh Governor B L Joshi, officials said.

The doctors were either involved in private practice or were trying to evade new postings at other places, they said, adding that among those dismissed were 45 women.

The complaint against some doctors even dates back to 1991-92 period, they said.
