KOHIMA, JANUARY 14: President of Nagaland In-Service Doctors Association (NIDA), Dr E Phyantsuthung said NIDA has been demanding an increase in the superannuation age of the doctors to 65 years based on the promise made by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi in 2016.


By large, it has been implemented across the country including the Northeastern states except for Meghalaya and Nagaland, he said.
He continued, in this regard NIDA has written to the State Government but no action has been taken so far. “Following this we wrote a letter making the same demands to the State Government in the month of October 2020, but the State Government has not been forthcoming with any decision. So we have submitted fresh representation requesting the State government to make their decisions known 7 days,” the NIDA president explained.
Since the deadline expired today, NIDA is again writing a letter to the government to give their decision within 24 hours and NIDA will decide its future course of action based on the response of the State government, President NIDA said. (Page News Service)
