  1. If we murder all the younger generation of doctors along with their children, retired faculty can continue permanently in post. They can continue to act as part time from Grave and even from heaven.(this is truth and not joke)

  2. Of course… lets keep increasing the retirement age. The young doctors do not need jobs anyways. Later, we can all crib about them not being willing to join government jobs

  3. You are correct.Increasing retirement age should never be at the expense of young faculty members.This can be done as stop gap measures when post remains vacant and increase should be considered every six month of engagement

  4. There should be increased salary to all medical College faculty.

  5. Correct and at the same time refrain from private practice that will make life decent for you and your family
