Madhya Pradesh to reopen regional health offices
Apr 10, 2006 - 11:55:37 PM

The Madhya Pradesh government Monday decided to reopen seven regional health offices abolished by the previous government, state officials here said.

The state's cabinet, at a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, accorded sanction for setting up offices of regional director - health services - at Bhopal, Gwalior, Indore, Jabalpur, Ujjain, Rewa and Sagar.

Posts of different categories were also sanctioned for these offices, the officials said.

They added that regional directors would be vested with financial and administrative powers equivalent to the director of health services.

These offices were abolished a few years ago following the introduction of a district government system by the previous government.

"Since the district government system no longer exists and difficulties were being experienced in implementation of different national programmes due to the abolition of these offices, it has been decided to set up these offices again," said an official who wished to remain anonymous.

The cabinet accorded sanction for the posts of district health officer, district family welfare officer and principal health and medical officer for the health and family welfare department.
