The retirement age of government employees may change soon in India. Modi government has started preparations for this. Retirement age can be determined in two ways. The first way is if the employee has completed 33 years of service or if the employee is 60 years old.
“The central government argues that 33 years of service or 60 years of age, whichever comes first, according to it, retirement will benefit not only the government but also other workers”
Retirement age change is also mentioned in the Seventh Pay Commission. DOPT sources in the case say that work has started on this proposal. If this scheme of retirement is implemented, it will have some benefits, such as the problem of the backlog will go away, new promotion opportunities will be created, then the path of new jobs will also be paved, employees who complain of not getting promotion on time, they will also get the benefit of this.
This decision of the central government will have the most impact on the security forces, because the military and other security forces are recruited on average around 22 years, so their 33 years of service will be completed in 55 years and they will be retired.
