In a letter addressed to the Mr. Jitendra Narain, Chief Secretary A&N Administration Mr. R Murugesan President of IHRC said that “it has come to my knowledge from reliable source that senior doctors posted under DHS are not attending or doing the night calls in many Hospitals. All load for round the clock calls are being managed by the newly appointed NHM doctors or the doctors under DHS, who are of SMO or MO”.
