Breaking the deadlock between the PGI administration and the faculty, which had plagued the preparations for the forthcoming Foundation Day at PGI, the Faculty Association has finally agreed to be part of the celebrations on July 7.
This was decided after an assurance from Director K K Talwar that the demands of the faculty would be met soon.
"We have been conveyed by the PGI administration that a committee under the Health ministry would be constituted which would have two former directors of the PGI, two former senior professors from AIIMS and a few officials to consider the demands related to the faculty promotions. Talwar has assured that work standards would be improved here and the 6th Pay Commission would be implemented from January 1, 2006. After getting the assurance from the director, we have decided to participate in celebrations," general secretary of the association Dr Ritesh Agarwal told Newsline.
Earlier, while addressing the media on the forthcoming Foundation Day at the institute, Prof Talwar along with Dean Prof Amod Gupta said while most of the payments have been made to the faculty as per the 6 th pay commission, the issue of promotions are pending which are being looked into.
It should be recalled that the Faculty Association of PGI, in its meeting last month had given a deadline of June 30 to the PGI administration to implement the pay commission's recommendations pertaining to the promotions of faculty. They had decided if their demands are not met till June 30, they would boycott the annual celebrations of Foundation Day on July 7.
Meanwhile, earlier in the day, the PGI administration led by Director Prof Talwar, Medical Superintendent Dr AK Gupta, Dean Prof Amod Gupta and other officials interacted with the media to unveil the preparations for the July 7 celebrations and the new facilities being added to the institute.
