AIIMS Vs resident doctors over PM-CARES contribution

Apr 08, 2020 15:22 IST

The AIIMS administration has rejected the proposal by its Resident Doctors' Association to make donations to the PM-CARES fund voluntary. In a response to the RDA's demand, the administration on Wednesday said there is no mechanism currently for an opt-in donation and all such voluntary donations are to be made directly to the charity of choice. The letter also stated that there is no provision to collect donations from residents for internal use for provision of PPEs and other facilities to equip healthcare workers. The AIIMS RDA had written to the hospital administration, demanding that donations to PM-Citizen Assistance Relief in Emergency Situations fund be made a voluntary exercise/opt-in and the money collected be used locally for procuring protective gear for them after the administration appealed to all resident doctors to contribute their one-day salary to aid the government's effort to fight Covid-19.
