c). Rural Medical College faculty allowance
The doctors posted in rural areas under the Health services are given special rural areaallowances. It was agreed during discussions with the Hon’ble Minister at Alappuzha on 25
October 09 that special rural area allowance will be give to doctors working in MedicalColleges at Kottayam, Alappuzha and Trissur where medical colleges are situated in ruralareas. In view of the rural location, the doctors in these colleges get a low house rentallowance. The special rural medical college faculty allowance will attract the faculty tothese medical colleges. Fund may be obtained from NRHM funds or RSBY reimbursementfund.
We propose a flat rate of Rs. 5000 per month as rural medical college facultyallowance
d). Risk Allowance1. Bio hazard allowance
The medical college faculty is doing clinical and para clinical work which exposes them tothe risk of infections, noxious substances and radiations. Hence all the faculty doing clinicaland para clinical work are to be provided risk allowance and it should be termed biohazardallowance.
We propose a flat rate of Rs. 5000 per month
2. Radiation hazard allowance
All faculty exposed to ionising radiations (those doing x-rays, CT, fluoroscopy, isotopestudies; in the departments like radio diagnosis, radiotherapy, cardiology for angiogram,gastroenterology for ERCP, Urology for PCNL and stenting, Orthopaedics for various surgicalprocedures and all labs where radio isotopes are used) are to be given the benefits of radiation hazard including radiation leave, radiation badges and special risk allowance .Thesefaculty have the high risk of developing infertility and cancer. Hence they are to be suitablycompensated
We propose the flat rate of Rs. 10,000 per month as special risk allowance forradiation hazard
Book and journal allowance
As per recommendations of the UGC with reference to 6
pay commission, specialallowances are to be given to the faculty to purchase books. In central instititutes, book and journal allowance is given. Medical text books and journals are very expensive and it will notbe possible to update knowledge by buying the books and journals from their salary
We propose a flat rate not exceeding Rs. 10,000 per year per faculty as book and journal advance (the actual amount to be paid)
