Odisha gives one-time relaxation doctors promotion

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday announced one-time relaxation in the promotion for the doctors under the Dynamic Assured Career Progression (DACP) scheme.

Informing about the decision, Patnaik said: "In the present situation of COVID-19 pandemic, the Medical Officers of Odisha Medical and Health Services (OMHS) cadre who are at the forefront of our health sector play a vital role in the management of COVID-19."

"Though promotion of Medical Officers under DACP scheme was announced a year ago, Medical Officers could not get promotion under this scheme due to want of required PARs. In order to fast track DACP, the government has allowed one-time relaxation for promotion under DACP scheme considering at least the Performance Apprisal Reports (PARs) of 3 years out of the preceding 7 years," said Patnaik.
