Supreme Court hearing on special permission petition
The Supreme Court had stayed the Rajasthan High Court order 2 days back.

High Court increased the retirement age
After the increase in the retirement age of allopathy doctors, a petition was filed in the High Court by Ayurveda doctors, pleading to increase the retirement age to 62 years. Hearing on which the High Court had ordered to increase the retirement age to 62 years.
Advocate General presented the argument
Presenting the arguments, the Additional Advocate General said that due to the shortage of allopathy doctors in the state, the decision to increase their retirement age was taken, but at present there is no shortage of Ayurveda doctors in Rajasthan.
