Govt docs can't go on strike: Madras High Court

Deccan Chronicle

CHENNAI: Acting in public interest, the Madras high court on Friday quashed all the 135 charge memos/transfer orders issued to government doctors who allegedly spearheaded an agitation in Tamil Nadu in October 2019, as 'tainted and malafide' exercise of power by the State government, but also made clear that 'government doctors do not have a right to go on a strike/boycott.'

Allowing a batch of writ petitions challenging the charge memos, transfer orders issued on the above doctors who were said to be in the forefront of the agitation - after they had called off their strike and returned to duty on November 1, 2019, on the assurance of the state chief minister and Tamil Nadu health minister that their long-pending demands including pay revision would be redressed as soon as possible, Justice N. Anand Venkatesh of the High Court also closed the connected miscellaneous petitions.
