Court sets aside denial of increments to doctor

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Observing that framing "flimsy and untenable" charges against honest medical officers will dampen their spirit, the Madras High Court has set aside the denial of increments to a doctor for six-and-half years. Justice N. Paul Vasanthakumar passed the order on a writ petition filed P. Arumugham, who was punished for having issued more number of medical certificates to Employees State Insurance beneficiaries than the national average of 10 certificates a day.
