The central government's order on early retirement has sent shockwaves through 49 lakh employees

The central government's order on early retirement has sent shockwaves through 49 lakh employees

The central government is going to reduce the retirement age of its officers and employees.  Although the proposal has been prepared now, the retirement age will be decided in two ways.

  This decision of the government will have the most impact on the security forces.  Since military and other security forces join on average around 22 years, their 33 years of service will be completed in 55 years

Interruption in promotion of juniors

 Sources reveal that after 32 years of service there is no major financial change in the salary category of an officer or employee, but when they work for sixty years their promotion of juniors starts to get hampered.

 At the same time, if new opportunities for promotion are created, the path of new jobs will also be paved.  In this way, the problem of backlog will also go away.  The scheme covers all categories of jobs from IAS, IPS to Central Government.

 The court said that the age of retirement should be one

 On January 31 this year, the Delhi High Court gave this ruling while hearing the petition of a retired officer Dev Sharma.  In which it was said that the Home Ministry should decide in four months that the retirement age should be the same in all ranks in all the Central Armed Police Forces.  So far, soldiers below the commandant in the Central Reserve Police Force 'CRPF', Indo-Tibetan Border Police 'ITBP', Border Security Force 'BSF' and Sashastra Seema Bal 'SSB' retire at the age of 57 years.

 The retirement age of officers of the rank of DIG and above is 60 years.  All ranks in the Central Industrial Security Force and Assam Rifles retire after completing 60 years of age.

 Retirement age is different

 In West Bengal, the retirement age of 65 years has been fixed for medical teacher, 62 years for doctor and 60 years for other posts.  For all posts, 60 in Andhra Pradesh, 60 in Tripura, 60 in Karnataka, 60 in Assam, 60 in Bihar, 60 in Meghalaya, 60 in Madhya Pradesh, 60 in Chhattisgarh, 60 in Nagaland, 60 in Gujarat, 60 in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh.  60 and in Sikkim retire at the age of 60 years.

 Employees or officers retire at the age of 58 in Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Goa, Arunachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Jammu Kashmir, Mizoram, Manipur, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Orissa.  The retirement age in Jharkhand and Kerala was kept at 56 years.  However, in many states, the retirement age has been decreasing.  Apart from this, provision for different retirement ages has also been made for different posts.  For example, in Haryana, the retirement age of technical personnel has been reduced to 60 years.  The retirement age of doctors has also been increased.
At the same time, the government argues on this decision that it is not a new initiative, it has been mentioned in the Seventh Pay Commission.  If this scheme of retirement is implemented, the backlog problem will go away.  The path of new recruits will be opened and the workers who were complaining about not getting promotion on time will also be able to get away.  DoPT sources say that work has started on this proposal.
