IMA welcomes Prime Minister Modi’s announcement of raising retirement age of doctors to 65
 
Addressing a rally in Saharanpur on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the retirement age for central and state government doctors will be increased to 65 years.
 
IMA welcomes this announcement. It was the need of the hour and will help reduce shortage of doctors in the country, especially in the rural areas. The retirement age has already been increased to 70 years in medical colleges.
The Prime Minister also appealed to doctors to give one day each month (the 9th day) and treat pregnant women from economically backward classes for free.
 
We also appeal to all our fellow members to provide free consultation to pregnant women from economically weaker sections of the society, across the country on the 9th of every month.
