Jan 19, Colombo: Doctors in Sri Lanka's state sector have issued a deadline till the end of this month for the government to implement the Service Minute of state sector professionals.

The doctor's union, Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) states that about 4,000 qualified doctors are waiting for their due promotions for over three years.

GMOA Spokesperson Dr. Navin de Soyza told the media that doctors in the state sector will launch an island wide strike action if the Service Minute of the state sector medical professionals, which deals with promotions, transfers and salaries, is not implemented by the end of this month.

He has explained that 1991 Service Minute is followed at present despite recommendations to follow the 2006 Salaries and Cadre Commission circular.
