Cabinet approves Enhancement of age of superannuation of doctors other than Central Health Service (CHS) doctors to 65 years

The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the enhancement of age of superannuation of doctors other than Central Health Service (CHS) doctors to 65 years in the following manner:

i. Ex-post facto approval to enhance the superannuation age of doctors of Indian Railways Medical Service to 65 years.

ii. Ex-post facto approval to enhance the superannuation age to 65 years for doctors working in Central Universities and IITs (Autonomous Bodies) under Department of Higher Education and doctors in Major Port Trusts (Autonomous Bodies) under Ministry of Shipping.

iii. The superannuation age has been enhanced to 65 years in respect of doctors under their administrative control of the respective Ministries/Departments [M/o of AYUSH (AYUSH Doctors), Department of Defence (civilian doctors under Directorate General of Armed Forces Medical Service), Department of Defence Production (Indian Ordnance Factories Health Service Medical Officers), Dental Doctors under D/o Health & Family Welfare, Dental doctors under Ministry of Railways and of doctors working in Higher Education and Technical Institutions under Department of Higher Education].

iv. The Union Cabinet has further approved that doctors shall hold the administrative posts till the date of attaining the age of 62 years and thereafter their services shall be placed in Non-Administrative positions.

The decision would help in better patient care, proper academic activities in Medical colleges as also in effective implementation of National Health Programmes for delivery of health care services.

Around 1445 doctors of various Ministries/Departments of the Central Government would be benefitted.

The decision will not have much financial implications as large number of posts are lying vacant and the present incumbents would continue to work in their existing capacity against sanctioned posts.

Background :

  • The age of superannuation of doctors of Central Health Service was enhanced to 65 years w.e.f 31st May, 2016.
  • The doctors other than Central Health Service including doctors of other systems of Medicine of Central Government requested for enhancement of age of superannuation on the ground of parity with CHS and shortage.

Raising Retirement Age of Doctors in the Armed Forces

Raising Retirement Age of Doctors in the Armed Forces

The retirement age of medical officers in the Armed Forces Medical Service (AFMS) is based on their rank, which ranges from 56 years in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel (& equivalent) to 60 years in case of Major General (& equivalent). In certain cases, Director General of AFMS in the rank of Lieutenant General and other Lieutenant Generals (& equivalent) may retire respectively at the age of 61 & 62 years.
There is no proposal to equate the retirement age of medical officers of AFMS to those doctors working in the civil sector as the terms and conditions of service for the two categories of doctors are totally different.
The present total authorised strength of AFMS is 7073 out of which 843 posts are vacant. Recruitment drives are conducted from time to time to fill up the vacancies.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Shrimati Chhaya Verma and Shri Vishambhar Prasad Nishad in Rajya Sabha today.

Retirement age of faculty doctors from 65 to 70 years

Retirement age of faculty doctors from 65 to 70 years

The below written answer was submitted by the Minister of Health and Family Welfare Shri.Ghulam Nabi Azad in Lok Sabha on 7th September, 2012…

Whether decision taken by the Government to increase the retirement age of faculty doctors from 65 years to 70 years has been implemented..?

The Government have not taken any decision to increase the retirement age of faculty doctors from 65 years to 70 years.

However the Medical Council of India, with the previous approval of the Central Government, has amended the “Minimum Qualifications for Teachers in Medical Institutions (Amendment) Regulations, 2010” wherein the maximum age limit up to which a person can be appointed or granted extension or re-employed in service against the posts of Teachers or Dean or Principal or Director, in any Medical College or Teaching Institution for imparting Graduate and Post-Graduate medical education, has been increased to 70 years, allowing an authority making recruitment rules /appointment to such posts in Medical College or Teaching Institution to make recruitment rules/appointment accordingly.
