Delhi government raised Doctors retirement age to 65
24 September 2016 Current Affairs: Delhi government has increased the retirement age of doctors working in its hospitals to 65 years. Earlier, the retirement age of doctors was 62 on 23 September 2016. 

Health Department had recently sent a proposal to the Lt Governor to seek his approval. The LG has given his approval to government's proposal to increase the retirement age of doctors.

The decision will help the state government to retain experienced doctors for a longer period of time and provide better services in government-run public health facilities. There are nearly 36 hospitals run by Delhi government in the national capital.

However, the doctors above the age of 62 will not be allowed to hold administrative posts like dean of a medical college, superintendent or head of the department.

At present, Delhi government hospitals have three cadres of doctors’ namely teaching, non-teaching specialists and general duty medical officers. Earlier, the retirement age for only the doctors of teaching cadre was 65 but with this decision, all doctors will retire at the age of 65.

Earlier in May 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the proposal to increase the age of retirement of government doctors to 65 years.
