A day after striking work, government doctors in Bihar called off their two-day strike after the government gave an in-principle nod to their demands.

“The government has agreed to out demands in principle and have assured us that they will be met in three to six months,” Dr. Ajay Kumar of the Bihar Health Services Association (BHSA) told The Hindu.

In view of the talks making headway, the doctors have also called off their indefinite strike slated for February 14.

Around 4,000 doctors, including 1,500 on contract were demanding regularisation of service, central government pay scale, professional security, an end to bureaucratic interference and provision of infrastructure as per National Rural Heath Mission (NRHM) standards.
