Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday adjourned hearing on a writ petition challenging the government order enhancing the retirement age of government medical college teachers from 55 to 60.
The petition was filed by M.M. Parameswaran, a former teacher of the Vaidyaratnam Ayurveda College, Ollur. The petitioner said the order was arbitrary and illegal. The order was passed without amending relevant rule in the Kerala Service Rules. He also contended that refusing to extend the benefits of the order to Ayurveda college teachers was discriminatory.
