Srinagar: Asking the recruiting agencies to prioritise selections for the pending vacancies in the health and medical education department, Governor NN Vohra on Monday called for drawing a policy to overcome the acute and recurring human resource shortage in this critical sector.
“The J&K Public Service Commission (JKPSC) should expedite the recruitment for the posts of medical officer and faculty positions for new medical colleges and ensure completion of the same before November-end, if not earlier,” the Governor said at a high-level meeting convened here on Monday afternoon to take a holistic review of the human resource position in the state’s health and medical education sector. Taking serious note of the faculty crunch in medical colleges and superspecialty hospitals, the Governor called for working out policy interventions to deal with this important issue. He asked the Chief Secretary to bring up a comprehensive policy in this regard.
Vohra also reiterated his earlier direction regarding urgent constitution of a committee of officers and experts which shall oversee all issues related to the operationalisation of the five new medical colleges. Responding to JKPSC chairman’s difficulty regarding the lack of adequate manpower in the commission, the Governor asked Chief Secretary to urgently post the required personnel to ensure time-bound selections.
