Previously, the Delhi High Court intervened to secure the release of the salaries of doctors employed in hospitals run by civic bodies.

The High Court had launched the PIL based on reports that doctors at Kasturba Gandhi Hospital threatened to resign because they have not received a salary since March this year.

Subsequently, many other petitions were filed regarding the non-payment of salaries by Delhi’s three municipal corporations – North, East and South – to its employees and retirees of various executives.

All petitions are listed to be heard before the appropriate bench on January 15, 2021.
