The State government on Tuesday decided to pay stipend to post graduate students of the Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy courses in Government Medical College. Honl Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri.Devendra Fadnavis informed that the stipend would be paid to post-graduate students from this month itself. The state Cabinet took the decision in its meeting held on April 21, Tuesday.
Dr.Bhatikar welcomed the move and said that demand for Physiotherapy has increased in leaps and bounds, therefore stressing the 'urgent need' for a central council. "We have presented our demand to the Centre several times, but nothing has happened. The council will streamline ethics and standardise the treatment as well. With the new government at the Centre, we are trying hard to get this resolved," added the doctor.
