Jammu, Mar 15 (UNI) Around fifty over-aged dentist doctors today demanded age relaxation from the Jammu and Kashmir Government in the vacancies referred to the Public Service Commission (PSC) this February.
Addressing the media persons here, President All India Dentist Association, Jammu Branch, Dr. Rakesh Talwar Bedi said out of 80 over-aged dentist doctors, 40 of them are employed on contractual basis.
''Those employed on contractual basis are being given relaxation in age to get them permanent but no attention is being paid to rest of the unemployed,'' Dr. Bedi said.
''We should also be considered by the state government as we are unemployed but the benefit is being given to those, who are already engaged on contracts,'' the association president said asserting, ''Already in the year 1996 and 2006, scores of doctors were considered under age relaxation.'' The vacancies have been referred to the PSC under notification number: 2:18/2008/PSC, the dentists said and alleged, ''we approached various government bodies and ministers but nothing has been done. We want Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to intervene in the matter.'' UNI VBH SC SV AS1747
