Government Clarifies:
No change in retirement age
The Cabinet Secretary K. M. Chandrasekhar today informed that there is no plans to revise the retirement age for Central Government employees. After the sixth pay commission implementation, employees were hoping for the rise in pension age, as doing so can reduce the burden of the additional payment to some extend. However the government decided other stopping all the rumours associated. Shri. K. M. Chandrasekhar clarified that the government has no intentions in changing the retirement age and the current system will be followed. “I tried to find out. But there is no file in (Department of) Expenditure, no file in DOPT (Department of Personnel and Training). There is nothing. It is more of a wishful thinking,” he said in an interview. At present the retirement age for the Central Government employees is 60. He also added that there is no plans to unify the retirement age of the state government staff across the states. “The states will decide their own retirement age,” he said. All states have their own retirement age - starting from 55 years (Kerala) to 60 years (Uttar Pradesh, Assam etc). The Madhya Pradesh government teachers retire at the age of 62 years.
