Dehradun, January 23
Dr RK Pant, Director General, Health and Family Welfare, took over as new Director General, Department of Health and Family Welfare.

Under pressure from the court, state Minister of Health and Family Welfare signed the orders this evening, paving the way for Dr Pant's formal elevation to the top post in the state.
Dr Pant, who would retire on January 31, fought hard against the government's obduracy conducting the DPC and then deliberately delaying the issue of orders.
After the retirement of Dr Pant, no DPC would be held as Dr Yogesh Sharma would be heading the post of DG after the retirement of Dr Pant.
The DPC for the probable vacant post of DG was also conducted in December last year.
