There is no idea to change the retirement age of Central Government Employees
The government says it has no plans to reduce the retirement age of Central Government Employees
New Delhi: Following speculations and rumours doing the rounds on social media that the Centre may lower the retirement age of central government employees, the Centre has clarified that no such plan in this effect exists.
Currently, the retirement age in most of the central government services is 60 years. For professors and doctors, however, it’s 65 years. It was rumoured that the department of personnel and training (DoPT)was mulling a change in this rule and retire employees who have completed 33 years of service or who have reached 60 years of age — whichever is earlier.
It was also said that the move was aimed to ease the current unemployment situation.
According to a TOI report, a senior government official has clarified that there is no such proposal. The idea was never discussed and no paper has been moved in this regard.
