JAIPUR: A delegation of senior resident doctors reached Governor House on Monday protesting against the government’s proposal of increasing age of retirement of doctors from 62 years to 65 years.
The doctors also wrote to chief minister Vasundhara Raje suggesting that the doctors retiring at an age of 62 should be given an opportunity to get posting in medical colleges run by Medical Education Society.
In medical colleges run by Medical Education Society the retirement age of doctors is 70.
Jaipur Association of Resident Doctors (JARD) also raised their voice against the proposal. “We will take out a rally against the proposal of increasing retirement age of doctors. The decision will encourage privatisation. The young doctors will not get chance in government hospitals. They will join private hospitals,” said Dr Ravi Jakhar, president, JARD.
