In a bid to overcome doctors’ shortage in the country, the Centre has decided to increase the retirement age of government doctors to 65. 
Making the announcement at a public meeting in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur district, about 500 km from here, on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Union Cabinet would take up the proposal next week. 
Modi said the change in the retirement age would apply to the Centre and states. The prime minister said doctors’ retirement age was 60 in some states and 62 in others.
The prime minister also appealed to doctors to provide free treatment to expectant mothers at least once a month. “I appeal to doctors to treat them free of cost on the 9th of every month,” he said.
