Central workers to retire at 62? - TEAM HERALD
June 11, 2013

NEW DELHI: A move is afoot to raise the retirement age of over five million central government employees from 60 to 62 years, citing the longer span of life enabling most to be fit to work, though ostensibly it may be keeping an eye on the Delhi Assembly elections due in November to influence over 80 per cent of them living in the capital.


The Ministry of Personnel and Training has forwarded a proposal in this regard to the Prime Minister's office (PMO) for inclusion in the agenda of the Cabinet for consideration, after securing consent of various ministries, sources said, claiming that it has an approval of the finance ministry. The decision will help immensely those on the verge of retirement to continue in service for two years.

The High Court judges already enjoy tenure up to 62 while the retirement age of the Supreme Court judges and the Election Commissioners is 65. The retirement age has also been raised to 62 in case of some key posts. It is already 62 years in case of the employees of the Madhya Pradesh government.
This will be the third time that the retirement age of the central staff is being raised and it is bound to have the cascading effect on the states coming under pressure from the employees' associations to follow suit.
It was raised from 55 to 58 by then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in 1962 after the war with China and then to 60 years by the then NDA government in 1998 on the recommendation of the central pay commission.

The central staff is already quite happy with the government for getting as much as 80 per cent of the basic pay as the dearness allowance, thanks to the last hike of 8 per cent announced in April with retrospective effect from January 1. Just before the polls, they may get yet another DA hike as the pay commission recommendation accepted by the government mandates revision twice a year to match the rise or fall in the consumer price index of the industrial workers.

  1. Central government employees retirement age enhanced to 62 from 60 years.

    If the announcement comes this month (June 2013), it will benefit maximum employees. The official date of birth for many employees is 1st July, though their actual DOB is different. This was done to avoid one academic year loss at entry to 1st standard of school admission.

    When DOB is 01-07, they retire on 30-06, and if DOB is 2nd July, they retire in July. Losing one increment due in July, even after working for 365 days by superannuating in June is a sad thing. Justice can be done to some extent, if the 62 years order comes this month for those retiring in June.

    I also feel, retirement can be made uniformly in July, irrespective of the month born and age can be 62. For example born any time in 1954, retirement can be July 2016 and born during June to December 1953, retirement can be July 2015 etc.

    Nothing can be done probably for those who retired on or before 31-05-2013.
