Govt mulling retirement age enhancement of medical faculty
Jammu, Nov 17: Jammu and Kashmir government is considering enhancement in retirement age of faculty members in the wake of staff crunch.
“To overcome the staff crunch, the state government has been finding way to enhance the retirement age of doctors of state. The proposal is under active consideration of the state government,” Minister for Medical and Technical Education RS Chib said addressing annual conference of North Zone Urological Society of India (NZUSI) which commenced at Government Medical College and Hospital Jammu, late last evening.
He said that the Medical Education department has been facing many problems, especially shortage of faculty members. “Many of neighboring states are also facing same problem. To tackle with staff crunch they (neighbouring states) have enhanced the retirement age of doctors upto 70 years”, Chib said adding that in Jammu and Kashmir the retirement age of medical faculty continue to be 58 years, which was also a reason for shortage of medical staff in the medical colleges of the state.
He also said that in Jammu and Kashmir the doctors have to complete 13 years of service to become a professor but according to the norms of Medical Council of India (MCI) only 10 years services were required to be a professor. “We are considering the issue and proposal to relax this service requirement for becoming professors in state from 13 to 10 years to over come the problem shortage faculty was being studied”.
