Age of Superannuation of Employees of Sick Central Public Sector Enterprises
The Government has said that the Department of Public Enterprises is not considering any proposal to enhance the age of superannuation of employees of all sick Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) from 58 to 60 years. However, Board for Reconstruction of Public Sector Enterprises (BRPSE) has been directed to undertake in-depth examination with regard to enhancement of age of superannuation from 58 to 60 years in respect of such CPSEs whose revival packages have been approved by the Government and which will continue to be in public sector after implementation of revival package, and thereafter make suitable recommendations to the concerned administrative Ministry for obtaining approval of competent authority. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today, Shri Praful Patel, Minister of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, said that BRPSE has also been directed to ensure that the issue of the enhancement of age of superannuation from 58 to 60 years is adequately addressed while examining/recommending future proposals for revival of sick/loss making CPSEs and that the revival package has specific recommendation in this regard.
Shri Patel informed the House that BRPSE has not made any specific recommendation regarding enhancement of age of superannuation from 58 to 60 years in respect of employees of ITI Limited.
