After several persuasions, the management agreed and accordingly all necessary formalities have been done and order issued. It will certainly motivate the doctor’s fraternity of the SAIL. The company has admired our Covid warriors in this way. In addition to this we seriously work on third pay revision and leave encashment. Hopefully demands will be fulfilled soon.
