Written by: Staff

New Delhi, July 4 (UNI) The Supreme Court will hear tomorrow application filed by Resident Doctors Association (RDA) of AIIMS amd MAMC, seeking directions to the Union Health Ministry not to deduct the salaries of doctors who participated in the strike against the Reservation Policy of the UPA government.

The bench comprising Chief Justice YK Sabharwal and Justice CK Thakker ordered the listing of the application for July 5, when the matter was mentioned before the Court. Supreme Court's vide-order dated May 31, 2006, while directing the agitating medicos to call off their strike forthwith, had also ordered that there would be no punitive action against any doctor or medical student for participating in the strike which started on May 13, when the doctors were brutally lathicharged by Mumbai police.

The doctors in their application have contended that if the government is adopting the policy of 'no work no pay' for the strike period then it should also pay overtime to doctors who are sometimes forced to work for 36-49 hours at a stretch though their duty hours are 12 hours.
