Doctors to Get Pay for Limited Strike Period : Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today directed the government to release salary of the doctors who participated in the recent anti-quota stir here.

A bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice L S Panta, however, clarified that the medicos will get salary only from May 14 to 30, the day the Apex court had asked them to resume their duties.

The medicos had sought salary of period beginning May 14 to June 3.

The court observed that "As a matter of law, we don't approve of doctors going on strike. Normally, the principle of no work no pay would have been applied but for your (Centre's) assuarance that no punitive action will be taken against them if they join back duties.

"So you pay the salary," it said.

Additional Solicitor General Gopal Subramanian submitted that the departure from the no work no pay principle should not be a precendent.

The Bench said it was making the departure only because the Government had given an assurance to the students before the court in this regard.

The court has already ordered that the strike period ie May 14 to June 3 shall not be taken note of for the purpose of their completion of training and internship and appearance in post graduate examination.
