Jaipur (Rajasthan) [India], Nov 10 (ANI): The Rajasthan government on Friday ordered the doctors on strike to return to their duties by 7 p.m., asserting "strict actions" would be taken against those not adhering to it.
He added that when services are staggered then the public has to face problems, which is why the decision was taken.
The mass leave was followed in accordance with the warning by the All India In-Service Doctors' Association (AIISDA) issued last month.
The 33 long-pending demands by the doctors of the state include the formation of a separate cadre for in-service doctors, Rs. 10,000 grade pay benefit for doctors, and running government health centres in a single shift, among others.
The state health minister, Kalicharan Saraf, has said the fulfillment of the demands may take time.(ANI)
