J-K to make rural service must for medicosMarch 5th, 2010 - 10:50 pm ICT by ANI
Jammu, Mar 5 (ANI): The Jammu and Kashmir Government is contemplating to make rural services mandatory for all doctors to improve health facilities in rural areas of the state.
Addressing the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) meeting State Chief Minister Omar Abdullah announced that those medicos who serve in rural areas under the NRHM scheme would get additional points in the Public Service Commission (PSC) selection process.
He stressed on achieving maximum physical and financial targets under NRHM and asked the authorities to conduct a survey for grading districts on basis of achievements.
In his address Abdullah also asked to conduct weekly review of all works under the NRHM and to conduct a survey on Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) and he added that himself will conduct a quarterly review.
He also asked the officials to make health workers more responsible for pre-natal, post-natal care and immunization by extending lucrative incentives.
He assured the meeting that the State Government would approach the Centre for seeking flexibilities of criteria under various central sponsored schemes like Serva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), NRHM and others.
Abdullah said his government has urged the Planning Commission of India to release at least 50 per cent of allocations under all centrally sponsored schemes in April of every year. (ANI)
