Private hospitals luring specialists with high pay

All efforts are on to recruit doctors and para medical personnel on a war footing, said Health Minister Eatala Rajender, but the constraint was that the private hospital are “hiring specialists at fabulous charges on an hourly basis with some paying anywhere between ₹2,000-₹3,000 an hour to hire specialists”.

“We have issued a notification for doctors recruitment. They will be paid ₹1.25 lakh a month when compared to private hospitals, which are ready to pay ₹6 lakh a month to the specialists,” he said.
