“The Union Cabinet has given its approval for enhancement of the age of superannuation of non-teaching and public health specialists of CHS from 62 years to 65 years and doctors of General Duty Medical Officers sub-cadre of CHS to 65 years,” an official statement said.

The government said this move would not have any financial implication as the vacant posts had to be filled up quickly to ensure continuity of patient care.

The age of superannuation in respect of all four sub-cadres of CHS — teaching, non-teaching, public health and GDMO — was 60 years prior to 2006.
