Patiala, August 5

In the wake of mounting Covid cases, the authorities at Government Medical College here have issued a warning to re-employed professors for their tendency to shirk from regular duties. The warning was issued to those who were found absent from duties, purportedly fearing Coronavirus, and marked present on the attendance register. The GMC Principal, in the order, said surprise checks would be conducted and if any re-employed professor found absent then strict action would be taken.

The Tribune had already highlighted that re-employed professors had been getting paid without performing duties. It has been learnt that authorities were scared to take any action against re-employed professors, owing to their seniority.

“Everyone knew about the dereliction of duties by re-employed professors, but no action was taken. Even now, they might not come for duty because they are not accountable for anything,” said a senior professor.

A senior official of the Medical Education Department said: “We have warned the re-employed professors to perform their duties sincerely, else action will be taken against them.” GMC Principal Dr Harjinder could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
