“We have taken cognisance of media reports that the extension will benefit the minister’s brother. We have asked for details of the case. We are against the government extending retirement age in any of its services,” said Prashant Devidas, president of the Goa Government Employees Association (GGEA). While Dr Shrikant could not be contacted, Dy CM Ajgaonkar said everything about the extension of retirement age for doctors was done as per the law.
