National Black Day on April 27

Dear Colleague

The 217th CWC at Kolkata has condemned and opposed the West Bengal Clinical Establishment (Registration, Regulation and Transparency) Act 2017. The hostility displayed by this Act on doctors, health care workers and the hospitals is unacceptable. All the state branches unanimously decided to voice their concern regarding the national repercussions of the Act. The Central Working Committee dedicated the major part of its sitting to this issue and closed sine die hours before schedule in protest. The CWC also decided to observe a National Black Day on Thursday 27.04 .2017. 

 Accordingly, all the state branches are hereby directed to inform all their members through their local branches to observe the National Black Day on 27. 04. 2017 against the West Bengal CEA. The observation shall be a peaceful demonstration of our solidarity with the suffering doctors of West Bengal. 

The following actions may be taken up at state and local branches level: -
  1. Black badges to be worn by all members.
  2. All hospitals and clinics to display black cloth in their notice board with explanation.
