The move will bring equity at par with medical doctors in other organizations
New Delhi, 9th February 2018: In a letter to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, the President Heart Care Foundation of India has put forth a strong case for increasing the retirement age of medical scientists in Government Health Research Organizations to bring equity at par with medical doctors at other organizations – one of them being the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and the other being CSIR.
ICMR is an autonomous body and was established by the GOI, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for the formulation, coordination and promotion of biomedical research. This medical research body is more than 100 years old and aims to bring modern health technology to people by translating medical innovations into products/ processes in prevention and care.
Speaking about this, Padma Shri Awardee Dr K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India (HCFI) said, “It is high time that the superannuation age of medical doctors working in various health research organizations such as ICMR and Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) is enhanced. Some facts should be considered before the premise is built for this request. These are detailed below.”
Adding further, Dr Aggarwal, who is also Editor in Chief IJCP Publications said, “In view of above facts, we request you to kindly look into the matter and enhance the superannuation age of Medical Scientists/Doctors working as Clinicians/ Teachers/ Specialists in ICMR and CSIR and / or in any other similar autonomous body / State Government / Department / Ministries of the Central as well State Government in larger public health interest.”
Such a move will not only help attract scientific manpower but also help all such research institutions to harness the expertise of scientists for a longer duration.
