Centre to increase retirement-age of govt. doctors to 65 years

Centre to increase retirement-age of govt. doctors to 65 years”

The Health Ministry said PM Narendra Modi approved the proposal in May'16.

Earlier in the day, in an endeavour to combat shortage of experienced doctors Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that retirement age of Central Government doctors will be increased to 65.

Prasad said the government has also chose to finalise a new electronic policy, a new policy on internet of things, a new e-commerce policy, a new software product policy and a new cloud computing policy very soon.

"Through this forward looking step, the services of experienced doctors shall be available to bring quality health services to the people".

The government said the decision would help provide better patient care and effective implementation of national programmes for delivery of health care services.

Nadda further added that the decision may not have much financial implications as large numbers of posts are lying vacant and the present incumbents would only continue to work in their existing capacity against sanctioned posts.

The retirement age of doctors employed in the Central Health Service (CHS) will now be 65 years, up from the existing 62 years, it was announced on Wednesday.

"Today, the cabinet took a policy decision that through a transparent mechanism, defence lands can be given to the mobile and internet service operators for having shared towers to further enhance connectivity". "The retirement age of central government doctors, other than Central Health Service doctors, will be increased to 65 years", the minister said while briefing the media about Cabinet meeting.

"The decision will not only enhance cellular connectivity in the country but also improve mobile signal reception in the cantonments", Prasad said.

He also informed that around 1,445 doctors of various ministries and departments of the central government would be benefited.
