7 months on, 24 ayurvedic officers await job letters

Patiala, July 19

As the state government is battling to contain Covid-19 outbreak, around 24 Ayurvedic Medical Officers (AMOs) have been awaiting their appointment letters since December 2019.

The National Health Mission (NHM) had advertised the posts in 2019 and a written test was conducted in June 2019 by Guru Ravidas Ayurvedic University.

A shortlisted candidate said: "We have been running from pillar to post to get our job letters. It is almost a year since our result was declared, but nothing is happening on the appointment front."

Another candidate said: "Earlier, officials said the government had no funds to pay salaries to new recruits. Now, they are unable to give a valid reason."

Dr Rakesh Sharma, Director Ayurveda, said the file pertaining to the appointments had been sent for clearance. He said, "Higher officials had asked for some changes, which we had made and the file has been sent again. We hope to start the process soon." — TNS
