MEDICAL COLLEGES in the State, already plagued by shortage of teachers might soon face additional blows with at least five senior teachers contemplating quitting. Sources said five teachers – all assistant professors – are thinking of resigning, piqued at alleged non-fulfillment of perks promised to them.

Three of these teachers belong to the Gandhi Medical College, Bhopal while one each are from the Indore and Gwalior Medical Colleges, sources said. The GMC assistant professors belong to the Neurosurgery, pediatrics and radiodiagnostic departments while the Indore and Gwalior teachers are from Neurosurgery and orthopaedics department respectively.

These five teachers are on deputation to the medical colleges from the health department for the last three years. They were reportedly promised salary hike of a particular level, but never received the hike, sources claimed.

Meanwhile, the teachers appointed on contract basis simultaneous to them got the raise. Piqued by this, the teachers reportedly wrote to the respective deans some time ago but are yet to get any response.

However, director of medical education Dr Swarna Biseria Gupta and dean Dr Nirbhay Shrivastava denied any knowledge of the development. Dr Shrivastava said there was some problem regarding receipt of No Objection Certificate for some of the teachers on deputation from the health department and that might lead to discontinuing of deputation for them.
