Dr Syam Sundar recalled that the file enhancement of the superannuation age of the MBBS doctors from 60 to 63 has been kept in pending for the last 20 months. "It is really shameful that a file has been kept in pending for 20 long months," he criticised.

He said that the doctors of Vaidya Vidhana Parishad and the Directorate of Health have been languishing for the last 20 years without any promotions.

Dr Syam Sundar said that the government issued an order two years back to effect time-bound promotions for the doctors of director of medical education but the promotions were yet to be completed.
