NEW DELHI: Resident doctors of AIIMS called off their strike and resumed duties on Sunday. They met Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Sunday who assured them that their concerns will be addressed.

The RDA held a meeting with Dr. Harsh Vardhan. Addressing the AIIMS director they said that the union minister assured them that their concerns will be addressed while drafting the regulations of the commission.

Vardhan met the delegation of resident doctors’ association of AIIMS and Safdarjung hospital. He hoped that they will end their strike in view of problems faced by patients.

However, Safdarjung resident doctors are yet to resume non-essential services. According to sources, the resident doctors of the hospital are likely to take a decision on the strike at a governing body meeting.

“Agitating doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Association (AIIMS) have called off their strike. The health minister explained the objectives of bringing NMC Bill 2019 at length. He assured us that the apprehensions will be duly addressed.

The main contentions against the Bill stem from Section 32(1), (2) and (3) of the bill. These encourage quackery by providing a license to practice modern medicine as community health providers for people not possessing an MBBS degree.  Additionally, the Bill is not clear over the introduction of NEXT and scrapping of NEET-PG.
