Emergency fiscal powers for navy medical doctors


New Delhi, April 23

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has granted emergency financial powers to military doctors. The decision came after he reviewed the Covid-19 situation. This will enable quicker procurement of medical items, material and provisioning of various services for treatment and management of Covid-19 cases.

As per instructions issued today, the DG of Armed Forces Medical Services (AFMS) would be empowered to spend Rs 5 crore. Medical officers of Maj Gen rank could spend Rs 3 crore, while Brigadier-rank officers would be able to spend Rs 2 crore. —TNS
