Ministry of Defense orders recruitment of 400 retired Medical Officers of AMC, SSC


The Ministry of Defense said on Sunday that it has issued an order to the Armed Forces Medical Services (AFMS) to recruit 400 retired medical officers of the Military Medical Corps (AMC) and Short Service Commission (SSC).

India has been badly affected by the second wave of corona virus infection and hospitals in many states are short of health workers, vaccines, oxygen, medicines and beds.

“Under the Tour of Duty scheme, 400 ex-AMC or SSC medical officers are expected to be recruited on contractual basis for a maximum period of 11 months, whose services between 2017 and 2021,” the Defense Ministry statement said. They were finished.

It states that these medical officers will be paid a fixed lump sum monthly amount, which will be calculated by deducting the basic pension from the salary taken at the time of retirement. He said that if there is any extra payment for the experts, it will be made on top of this lump sum.


It states that the amount will remain unchanged during the term of the contract and no other allowances will be paid. Medical officers to be admitted are required to be medically fit as per civilian standards.

AFMS has already deployed additional doctors, including specialists, super specialists and paramedical personnel, to various hospitals to deal with the second wave of the Kovid-19 epidemic. The service extension for AFMS SSC doctors has been extended till 31 December, leading to an increase of 238 more doctors.
