The PGI Nurses Welfare Association along with the Nurses Union of AIIMS, New Delhi will organise a protest rally at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on February 27 to press its demands of changing the nomenclature of nurses from Sister Grade 1 and Sister Grade 2 to Senior Nursing Officer and Nursing Officer. The demand has come about as more males are now joining the nursing profession and as such calling them sister is improper.

They are also demanding higher pay scale for the merged cadre of ANS and DNS from Rs 5,400 to Rs 6,600.
