Doctors preparing for protest up on the deal!

While the GMOA claims to go ahead with the proposed strike on August 3rd, it is reported that the Treasury approval for the increase of the DAT allowance for doctors has been approved.

Accordingly, a doctor’s allowance will increase by Rs. 15,000 and a Specialist’s allowance will increase by Rs. 25,000.

The Finance Ministry stated the currently all government doctors are paid Rs. 35,000 as the DAT allowance.

The State Administration Department had sought the recommendations of the Treasury Department recently for the increment of the DAT allowance.

The proposed strike is scheduled to take place based on several demands including the Singapore trade agreement, the new Inland Revenue Act, non allocation of schools for the doctor’s children and several other demands.
