Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Government has allowed one-time relaxation for the promotion of Medical Officers (MOs) under the DACP scheme considering at least the Performance Appraisal Reports (PARs) of 3 years of the preceding 7 years.
In a video message, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday said the MOs of Odisha Medical and Health Services (OMHS) cadre who are at the forefront of our health sector play a vital role in the management of COVID-19.
Their contribution is praiseworthy in the present situation of COVID-19 pandemic, he added
Patnaik said, though the promotion of Medical Officers under the DACP scheme was announced a year ago, they could not get promotions under this scheme due to want of required PARs.
He assured them that the exercise will be completed by 30th April 2020.
