Expedite recruitment process: NJDA

Expressing displeasure over the state government’s “lack of sincerity” towards healthcare system, Nagaland Junior Doctor’s Association (NJDA) has said that the recent recruitment drive conducted by health and family welfare department to enhance manpower was yet to see the light of day.

NJDA through its media cell stated that six months have elapsed since the interview was conducted for medical officers (MO) following the post creation by the government. It said that the department was yet to complete the recruitment process, adding that only 94 Mos and 15 specialists have been appointed on contract basis and the remaining were yet to receive appointment order.
NJDA pointed out that a total of 168 MO and 15 specialist posts were advertised, but the applicants for MOs were only 160 falling short of eight candidates. “So in spite of the fact that there is even shortage of doctors for the advertised post the government is not sincere enough to absorb all at the earliest,” the NJDA stated.
It further pointed out that those posts were meant to cater the ongoing pandemic crisis and mitigate the acute shortage of doctors in the state. 
NJDA has, therefore, appealed to the state government to execute its commitment in letter and spirit and expedite the process as it would not only address the ailing healthcare system in the rural areas, but would also strengthen the tertiary hospital in the districts.
