Resident doctors oppose cut in salaries by the BMC

Around 2000 resident doctors attached to civic-run public hospitals of the Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC), got a shock in receiving their monthly stipend on Friday 9th February 2018. They found that over half the sum had been, for the first time ever, deducted in taxes! Members of the central committee of the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) at a press conference on Saturday 10th February 2018 explained that they all resident doctors are students who pay yearly fees to the respective colleges and are given a stipend in lieu of the back breaking work they do in hospitals. The Income Tax Act clearly mentions that tax must be deducted at source only from salary and other professional earnings etc. Hence it is only applicable to those who are employed.

Struggle of the staff of Sinhgad Institute of Technology and Sciences (SITS), Pune for the payment of pending salaries!

It has built colleges for engineering, medical and pharmacy. With close to 70,000 students enrolled, it charges hefty fees and collects donations. However it does not meet its obligations towards the teachers and staff that it has hired. The government is looking on while it hires teachers and staff on contract or on temporary status, notwithstanding that they do regular full-time work. Worse, they have not been paid their salaries for months.
