Cabinet decision to increase retirement age deferred

A proposal to increase the retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years came to the Cabinet on Thursday but a decision was deferred. The government might make the announcement in the Prime Minister’s Independence Day address, his last before general elections in 2014. The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions has proposed an increase in retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years, top sources confirmed.

There are around five million central government employees in India. The previous occassion the government raised the retirement age of central government employees was in 1998, from 58 to 60 years. The move is meant to ease the financial burden on the government in terms of its pension liabilities, sources said.

The retirement age of professors in all central universities was recently raised to 65 years. D L Sachdev, national secretary of the All India Trade Union Congress, said his union was totally against the increase of the retirement age beyond 60. It would hurt the youth, especially when the government is doing nothing to create jobs for them, Sachdev said.

Congress-affiliated Indian National Trade Union Congress national president Sanjeeva Reddy said his union had been demanding increase in the retirement age to 62 years and would welcome it.

Minister for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanaswami had ruled out an increase in the retirement age to a question in Parliament in the winter session this year. An official in the ministry, when asked, refused to speak about it.

  1. There are CLEARCUT AND UNDISPUTED 30 Nos. (i.e. without any dispute of the court) vacancies for DIPLOMA HOLDER A.E.s who can be IMMEDIATELY promoted as E.E.(Civil) and for which Association must take up the matter with the authorities IMMEDIATELY. These vacancies are available by choosing either of the seniority list i.e. either 2002 or 2011 or 2005 , there is absolutely no dispute for these vacancies. It is surprising why the assocation is unable to persue the case or it is intentionally depriving the Diploma holders from promotion even after conducting the DPC in November 2012. The ASSOCIATION AND THE MEMBERS ARE REQUESTED TO RESPOND TO THIS MAIL.
