Shortage Of Homoeopathic Doctors In CGHS


There are 39 posts of Homoeopathic Doctors currently lying vacant in Department of AYUSH including one post of Adviser and its break-up is as under:-


     CGHS-                                                                        28
{13 (Delhi/NCR) and 15(Outside Delhi)}

Department of AYUSH-                                                    11


            A proposal to fill up 27 posts of Homoeopathic Doctors has been sent to the Union Public Service Commission in August, 2012 under Single Window System.  As the remaining posts are required to be revived as per the extant instruction of the Central Government, the process has been initiated to revive these posts in consultation with the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure).  In respect of Adviser (Homoeopathy), the UPSC held the DPC meeting on 04.10.2012 to fill up the post by promotion which, however, did not materialize due to the retirement of the recommended candidate.

            In order to  fill up the vacant posts of Homeopathic doctors, D/o AYUSH  has initiated the action as indicated above, however, CGHS appoints the retired  Homeopathic Doctors on contract basis  in order to meet the immediate requirement of Doctors for catering the medical needs to the CGHS beneficiaries and  to ensure smooth running of the CGHS dispensaries.  Interviews have already been held on 21st December, 2012 for contractual appointment on short term basis.

            The above information was given by the Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
