Increase retirement age of government employees to 62

Increase retirement age of government employees to 62

On 21st March 2013, there was an unstarred question in Rajya Sabha, about whether there was a proposal to increase the retirement age of Central government employees. The relevant MOS answered there was no such proposal. That’s not quite true, because there is such a proposal floating around and it went to Cabinet sub-committee and an in principle decision to implement was taken by Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT). One should not mix up existence of a proposal with a decision about implementing it. Evidently, a decision has now been taken to increase the age from 60 to 62 years, the last time such an increase took place was in 1998, when there was an increase from 58 to 60 years. Whenever such a decision is taken, debates centre on the big picture. What are arguments for? First, life expectancies are increasing. There is a shortage of good people within government. Let’s tap this expertise. Second, in any case there are extensions in “exceptional circumstances”. But that’s arbitrary and can be shot down by the Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC). Why not formalize the system by allowing extensions to everyone? The trouble with this argument is that there will be no finality about 62 either and there will be “exceptional circumstances” beyond 62.

Union government wants retirement age 62

Union government wants retirement age 62

The Union Government is seriously considering raising the retirement age to 62 for Central Government employees. Obviously, if the Congress announces this before the Lok Sabha polls, it could expect a sizeable vote share. North Block, which houses the Union Ministry of Finance would be more than happy to have 62 years as the retirement age because for next two years the pension funds can accumulate.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Proper Monitoring of deputation by the lending departments.

Undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments OM of even number dated the 17th June, 2010 and to say that as per existing instructions no extension in deputation beyond the fifth year is allowed. Further, as per the OM No. 14017/30/2006-Estt (RR) dated the 29th November, 2006, the deputationist officer is deemed to have been relieved on the date of expiry of the deputation period unless the competent authority has with requisite approvals, extended the period of deputation, in writing, prior to the date of its expiry. These instructions were reiterated vide the OM of even number dated the 1st March, 2011.

2. In 56th Report of the Action Taken Replies of the Government on the recommendations/observations contained in the 5th Report on the Demands for Grants (2012-13) of Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions by the Department Related Parliamentary Standing Committee has observed inter alia that policy on deputation envisages mobility of personnel between Departments etc so that the employee as well as the Departments benefit from the process. The tendency of treating deputation as a tool to ensure more comfortable, or even home town postings is required to be discouraged. The instrument of deputation 
serves public interest only when there is a rational connection with the qualifications and work experience of the deputationist, and the deputation continues for a reasonable period. This would also ensure that both the
 lending as well as the borrowing department benefit from the experience / exposure of deputationist officer.

3. All the Ministries/Departments are therefore advised to ensure that deputations are strictly monitored by lending Government Departments. Requests of the borrowing authorities for no objection to extension of 
deputations should be closely scrutinized to curb tendency to allow extensions on extraneous grounds, and overstay.

4. These instructions are in addition to the previous OMs on the subject, and in no way dilute the responsibility of the deputationist and borrowing departments to ensure that the deputationists are relieved in time on completion of their approved tenures.

5. Hindi version will follow.
