Junior doctors in West Bengal called off their strike on Monday evening ending the seven-day standoff.

'We are satisfied with the meeting,' said representatives of the doctors.
The CM has asked the police to appoint nodal officers for the security of doctors at all government hospitals in the State.
“Also the entry and exit gates of hospitals will be manned properly; CCTV cameras will be made functional. The police will be stationed in good numbers in the hospitals. A nodal officer will have all the information and coordinate with the doctors when they approach him with queries,” said Ms. Banerjee.
The entire team of the Chief Minister including the Chief Secretary, Health Minister, Home Secretary to the chiefs of the police administration and health department officials was present at the meeting.
