Resident doctors across Maharashtra, estimated to be around 4,500 in number, have gone on indefinite strike, after bilateral talks with state government failed. The doctors are demanding certain amenities such as hike in stipend, 2-month maternity leave for women doctors, and proper security, among other demands.

"We had placed 10 demands before the authorities. We have demanded certain amenities like maternity leave for women doctors. We also asked for CCTV cameras to be installed in hospitals to help avoid untoward incidents. We have had a word with the ministers over the same," one of the protesting doctors said.

This strike comes close on the heels of a similar strike by doctors in Delhi.
