New Retirement age for government doctors - 65 years
On Thursday, while addressing a rally at Uttar Pradesh, PM Narendra Modi said that there is a need for more doctors across the country, but it had not been possible to fill this gap in the two years of his government. His cabinet will take a decision in this regard and the retirement age of government doctors would be made 65 years, he said.
The new retirement age applies to non-teaching and public health specialists and general duty medical officers to 65 years.
Quite a few medical bodies however feel that this is not the best solution to solve the manpower issue involving doctors. They instead propose a different solution - regularise temporary lecturers and give time-bound promotion and time-bound pay scale to medical teachers.

Time bound promotions are welcome. But it should be based on stricter criteria of efficiency .Other wise we will be adding burden on the society
