Odisha Government moved to take to task the truant doctors who are reported missing

Bhubaneswar:19/11/17’ Odisha today moved to take to task the truant doctors who are reported missing from their workplaces.

A notice warning of disciplinary action was served against 108 doctors, who have remained absent from their places of duty for a long period.

The state government had issued notices several times to the said doctors, who remained absent in an unauthorised manner, directing them to join duty at their respective places of posting but they never responded, said Health and Family Welfare Minister Pratap Jena.

These absentee doctors are yet to report for duty though their postings were made 3 to 5 years ago, he said adding, these doctors have remained incommunicado, flouting the official orders.

Therefore, this is the final notice issued by the government and if they fail to submit replies within the stipulated time period of one month, action would be taken against them as per law, the minister said.

A senior official said these doctors have either deserted their place of duty wilfully for a long period or failed to report for duty.

Attempts have been made to ascertain their addresses to communicate with them but their whereabouts could not be known as they have not intimated their present address either to their immediate authorities or to the Director of Health Services or Director, Medical Education and Training, he said.
