Retirement Age 62 – Once again it has been denied in Parliament…

While answering to a question in Parliament today on 22nd August 2013, the Minister of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Shri. V.Narayanasamy said that ‘at present there is no proposal to increase the age of retirement of Government employees’.

He also added, as per fundamental Rules 56(a) except as otherwise provided, every Government servant shall retire on attaining the age of 60 years.

Last week formal announcement regarding this policy was expected to declare on 15th August. Now the Central government has denied to pursue the policy of increasing the age of retirement of CG staff once again in Parliament.
