The Pondicherry State Students-Parents Welfare Association has urged the Puducherry government to take urgent measures to fill the vacant posts of professors, associate professors and senior resident doctors at the Indira Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute (IGMCRI), on a priority basis.

In a letter addressed to Lt. Governor C.P. Radhakrishnan and Chief Minister N. Rangasamy, V. Balasubramanian, president of the Association said IGMCRI was facing an acute shortage of faculty members. As many as 85 posts of professors, associate professors and senior resident doctors have been lying vacant. Failure to fill up these posts would cause irreparable damage to the student community and will place the government in a bad light, he pointed out.

Though the management of IGMCRI had issued a notification for the filling up of these posts in March, the move was put on hold in the wake of the Model Code of Code coming into force due to the Lok Sabha elections. The Puducherry government should get the approval of the Election Commission of India and start the recruitment process immediately, he said.
