Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 20: The enhancement of pay band level of Junior Physiotherapists of Health and Family Welfare department (H&FW) department by the government has created flutters among the community, with juniors celebrating the move taken by government while seniors have no change in their pay band level.
Moreover the two SROs issued by Union Territory led state government in the last week of October, two different pay-band levels have been given to the Junior Physiotherapists of Health and Family Welfare department as well as those working in Government Medical Colleges.
As per documents available with Early Times the GAD had issued SRO-696, which deals with the posts in Health and Family Welfare department (Subordinate/Non-gazetted services) for the UT of Jammu and Kashmir upon exclusion of the posts of UT of Ladakh.
At the serial number 133, 134 and 135, Junior Physiotherapists, Senior Physiotherapists and Physiotherapists have been mentioned, who have been kept in Division cadre, with Pay-band Level-7 and revised pay scale of Rs. 44900 to 142400 as per 7th Pay commission.
The government issued another SRO-778, which deals with the posts in Government Medical College Jammu. The Serial number 32 deals with one post of Physiotherapist in Level 7 and with revised pay scale as per 7th Pay commission, 44900-142400 while the Serial number 154 and 155 deals with senior Physiotherapists and Junior Physiotherapists respectively, who were kept in pay-band of Level 6 with revised pay-scale of 35400-112400.
The junior physiotherapists working in Health and Family Welfare department have been celebrating the move. "We are extremely thankful to the Union as well as Lt Governor SC Murmu, by conceding the long pending demand of Junior Physiotherapists, by putting them in Pay band Level-7", Junior Physiotherapists said, adding that the eligibility criteria for Junior Physiotherapists in H&FW is Bachelor degree and for the last many years they had been demanding to recruit them through Public Service Commission rather than Service Selection Board.
They further said that their first demand has been accepted and they would further take up their demands with LG in coming future.
Sources in the department informed that Senior Physiotherapists working in H&FW had been working in Pay Band level-7 while in GMC they had been in Pay-Level 6 but the change of Pay-band of Junior Physiotherapists has created flutters with some quarters trying to redo the order, putting back the junior physiotherapists in the old pay grade.
