  1. i am Dr. Vikram singh and pass out my BPT (4 and 1/2 year) completed. i am searching for a job in physio, but the salary very unexpectable. Because, it not suitable to me, actucally i have an training experiece in football club and other clinical department at least 4 years during these courses. in that time they gave me Rs. 23,000 per month. but any private hospital gave me only few amount of money. Physiotherapy work is very harder than any other medical courses, and the govt. of india should also announce the salary for physiotherapy in the eve of 1997 i think so, for the 6th pay commission of india that physiotherapist grade scale should be equal to MBBS and other field of the medical.
