BMC asked to frame policy on incentives to asst profs

The Bombay High Court has directed the BMC to frame and implement a policy to offer incentives to assistant professors serving in its medical colleges and hospitals.

A bench of Justices S C Dharmadhikari and Bharati Dangre were recently hearing a petition filed by the Medical Professor’s Welfare Association seeking, among other things, timebound promotions, and better career progression.

The bench’s directions came after the counsel for the BMC submitted that it wasn’t opposed to introducing incentives for assistant medical professors employed in its various hospitals and medical colleges, and that if the Maharashtra government introduced such a policy, it would willingly implement the same for the benefit of petitioners.

In an affidavit submitted in HC, BMC stated that if the state government was planning to implement a scheme or policy granting incentives to medical employees, and in case such scheme did not have adequate promotional avenues for the assistant medical professors, then in that case, it was willing to frame an implement a policy of its own.
