The award which was presented at ‘State of the States Conclave 2018’ organised by the India Today Group has bring laurels to state and each & every employee of the health department.

President DAK , Dr Suhail Naik said that the award directly reflects the blood and sweat of my doctors and paramedics who are working day night to serve humanity at the cost of their families and social life.

Doctors and Paramedics are the only employees of the state that have made the state of Jammu and Kashmir proud nationally not once but thrice consecutively.
It is due to persistent and consistent efforts of health comrades in turmoil hit state, there is large improvement in rural health care delivery system and still a long way to go.

This drift in the upgradation & improvement is all because of the dedicated efforts of doctors & paramedics working across the state against all odds & challenges Dr Naik further added.

Two and half day salary, risk and rural allowances, security and dignity, anti rowdy ordinance, transparent transfer and deputation policy are our fundamental rights and our long drawn battle will continue till all demands are not met said General secretary DAK Dr Owais H Dar.

It is very unfortunate and pathetic that despite state has received top national award thrice, the administration has left no stone unturned to demoralise and degrade doctors when it comes to address their long pending geniune demands.

Now keeping in view the vivid transparency in Hon’ble Governor led administration we appeal His Excellency Governor of the state, Shri Satya Pal Malik, Hon’ble adviser for Health, Shri K Vijay Kumar and Principal secretary Health and Medical Educations, Shri Atul Dullo to adress all genuine demands JK doctors once for all.
