 Haryana Raises Doctors' Retirement Age to 65: Health Minister Anil Vij

The retirement age for doctors practicing in Haryana is 58 years. In a move to meet the shortage of doctors in the state, the Haryana government has decided to raise the retirement age of practicing doctors from 58 to 65 years.

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij told media here that the decision was taken at a meeting of the Haryana health department, chaired by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

Vij said that, however, those doctors who were working on administrative posts, would retire at the age of 58 years. "They will be able to continue to serve up to 65 years only if they opt to practice in any health institution of their choice," he added.

The Health Minister said that it has also been decided to invite applications from those retired doctors who would like to rejoin service as medical practitioners.

"They would be re-employed. This measure would help in checking the shortage of doctors in the state," Vij added.
