New Delhi, Aug 26 (TIWN) The Supreme Court on Wednesday disposed of a plea seeking timely payment of salary to doctors and healthcare workers, citing that the Delhi High Court was already on the matter.

The top court observed that the North Delhi Municipal Corporation has already started paying salaries to doctors. The observation came on a petition by a private doctor, who questioned the Centre's decision on May 15 that 14-day quarantine period is not mandatory for doctors.  The bench added that it will depose the plea with liberty to petitioner to raise issues, if any, before the high court.  Senior Advocate K.V. Viswanathan, representing the petitioner, informed the bench that there is an issue still remaining, the ASHA Workers who have not been paid salaries so far.
