132 doctors granted financial pay upgradation

Goa: About 132 doctors of the directorate of health services have been granted financial pay upgradation under the Dynamic assured career progression (DACP) scheme. It is applicable only to government doctors in the state.A doctor becomes eligible for financial pay upgradation after completion of a certain number of years in service.Pay upgradation ought to be given periodically, but the process remained pending in case of many doctors for several years as the department did not take the initiative. A public health department official said that in some cases the benefit under the scheme was delayed for more than four years.

“It was brought to the notice of the previous health secretary Nila Mohanan, who took the initiative to clear the pending files. A screening committee was formed under her to complete the process,” the official said.“It wouldn’t have been a huge exercise if it was completed in time. Also, new doctors will feel encouraged to join government service.
