Increase in retirement age will affect promotion of UP med teachers: Forum


Increase in retirement age will affect promotion of UP med teachers: Forum

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh governments proposal to raise the retirement age of medical teachers from 65 to 70 years, if implemented, will adversely affect the promotion prospects of middle-aged teachers in the state, a forum today claimed.

The chances of middle-aged teachers becoming head of departments will become remote and they will also not get research projects, the office bearers of the SGPGIs faculty forum said.

 The move will adversely affect the promotion prospects of these teachers, they said.

Chairman of the Faculty Forum of the SGPGI, professor Ashok Kumar, and secretary M S Ansari said that the doctors will oppose the implementation of this move and if needed boycott their duties.

The forums members are also planning to meet the UP governor and convey their grievances.

When contacted, Director General of Medical Education Dr KK Gupta said, “There is a shortage of capable specialist teachers in the higher medical institutes in the state, and hence, there is a proposal to raise the retirement age.”

The proposal is under consideration by the state government, and has not been implemented.

    It is better to increase maximum eligibility age to 45 for APs, rather than increasing retirement age. This way who are overaged as per present criteria, will be eligible for the teaching post and hence will have opportunity to work in medical colleges. Those who have served in Medical colleges for long should now retire and work in good private set up.
