Rajasthan Govt employees to declare assets for promotion/increment. Doctors to get hike.

Rajasthan government officers who do not declare their wealth will not get a raise in their salaries, the state cabinet ruled on Wednesday. The cabinet also decided issues related to private partnership in the power sector, doctors' salaries and amendment in the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (Limitation of Functions) Regulations, 1951. The state government had directed its officials to declare their assets to bring in transparency and check corruption. Chief minister Ashok Gehlot took the initiative to give clean governance by declaring his assets, along with those of his ministers, in January this year. Last month, the Centre government officials serving with the state government, too, declared their assets. A couple of Centre and state employees are, however, yet to follow the instructions.

"Officers whose remaining service periods are long enough but who are no longer entitled for promotions will not get the benefit of annual salary increment if they do not declare their assets," a government statement released after the cabinet meeting said. The cabinet decided to take rates fixed by the district level committees as the basis for evaluating current values of the immovable properties. But the government has not fixed any cut-off date by when the officers are to declare their properties. 

The state cabinet approved the proposal related to better facilities for medical teachers. It was decided that recommendations of the three-member ministerial sub-committee that negotiated with the agitating medical teachers be executed. The decision will increase the grade pay of a senior professor to Rs 10,000 from Rs 8,900.

To bring the state's medical teachers at par with their colleagues serving with the Centre government, it was decided that three promotions would be given to them within a period of 14 years even if there were no vacant posts. This includes a promotion from the post of an assistant professor to associate professor in 6 years, from associate professor to professor in 4 years and from professor to senior professor in 4 years. Professors who complete 14 years service this way would be provided a grade pay of senior professor after completing two years in the grade pay of a professor.

The cabinet approved increase in the medical teachers' and other doctors' non-practice allowance from 20% to 25%. This implies that the government will pay a private practice fee of Rs 100 to an assistant professor, Rs 125 to an associate professor, Rs 150 to a professor and Rs 200 to a senior professor per visit. A separate committee would be constituted for resolving other issues related to private practice by the government doctors.
