Resident doctors in Maharashtra, who were on strike to seek a resolution to the delay in counselling for postgraduate medical courses and other issues, called off their protest on Tuesday after a “fruitful” meeting with the state medical education and research director.

Thousands of resident doctors in the state had gone on strike on Friday, demanding recruitment of non-academic junior resident doctors equal to the number of residents in colleges.

In a statement issued late on Monday evening, Central Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) president Avinash Dahiphale said the recruitment of house officers/ medical officers in all government/ corporation medical colleges and hospitals as per requirement in the view of the delay in NEET-PG counselling had been addressed.

Irregularities pertaining to stipend at some medical colleges will also be addressed soon, he said.
