The community later took ultimate measures to let their voice heard by submitting mass resignation, which literally means the closure of all activities including providing care service to patients on April 8. It took no time for the Chief Minister to act and it was indeed under his understanding about the genuine demand of the community that the government authority solved the issue at the earliest possible time.
The memorandum of understanding was signed by V. Vumlumang, Principal Secretary (H & FW) , Dr. Th. Bhimo Singh (Director, JNIMS) and Regina Hongrey Deputy Secretary (PIC) from the government side and Dr. H. Kulabidhu Singh President Teachers’ Association, JNIMS, Dr. S.

Memcha , President Train Nurses Association (TNA), Nilkanta , Vice President, Association of All Non-Teaching Staffs, Ph, Janapriya Devi GS, TNA, and three others from the side of JNIMS community.
In The memorandum of understanding signed today, it is stated that considering the special duties performed by the doctors, nurses, and staff of JNIMS, especially I facing the COVID-19 Pandemic, the state government agrees to implement 7th Pay commission in JNIMS with notional effect from 1.1.2016 as a special case. Implementation will start with effect from 1.4.2021.
