While addressing ReT Teachers Conference at Zorawar Singh Auditorium Jammu Friday, Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah indicated the active intention of the Government to enhance the retirement age of University faculty members as also those of Medical Education to help these institutions maintain the standards of teaching and be able to retain the highly experienced faculty.
Omar said that it has been observed that due to disparity in the retirement age of the faculty of Centre Universities and other Universities in the State it has become difficult for the State Universities to retain their qualified and experienced faculty. He said same is the case in the Medical Education Department as such Government is actively considering the enhancement of the age of faculties of State Universities and the Medical Education.
The Chief Minister said that propaganda is being created against the Government that it is taking new initiatives after the defeat of coalition candidates in the Parliament Elections. He said “we are not bothered about this false propaganda our objective is to benefit the people of all sections of the society and we will continue to do this irrespective of all false propaganda. We have taken historic steps in the past and will take such measures at present and in the future also”.
