New Delhi, June 5 (IANS) The Indian cabinet Thursday gave its approval for enhancing the retirement age of teaching specialists among Central Health Service (CHS) doctors from 62 years to 65 years. “The enhanced age of retirement would be available to those specialists who are engaged only in teaching activities and are not occupying administrative positions,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi told reporters after a cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

“Such CHS officers who are occupying administrative positions would have the option of seeking appointment to teaching positions in case they wish to continue up to 65 years,” he added.

The enhancement of retirement age will not have any financial implication, the minister said.

The decision will benefit teachers in institutions like the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here and the Post Graduate Institute (PGI) at Chandigarh, Dasmunsi added.
