Central Retirement age stays 60, unconfirmed news from DOPT.

Many people across the country were disappointed on Monday when the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) decided to keep it at 60 instead of 62.
A senior member from the establishment department of the DoPT told Newsline, “It has not been discussed and we have not issued any orders or have taken any ‘in-principle decision’ on the same.’’
“Though there was no official announcement, the news of the extension of retirement age was widely circulated among the departments,’’ said M Naik, associated with the central government.
B J Piwal, a member of the central government employees for national confederation, said he was disappointed with no extension in the age. “Though we had no news or order from the seniors in the department, news which appeared on the Net about the extension gave us some hope. Two more years would have good,’’ he said. 
The last time the government extended the retirement age of central government employees was in 1998. It was also a two-year extension from 58. This was preceded by the implementation of the Fifth Pay Commission, which had put severe strain on government finances. Subsequently, all the state governments followed the Centre’s policy by extending the retirement age by two years. Public sector undertakings too followed suit.
A certain section of the employees serving in various government establishments feel that the news of the extension was more political with the government facing lot of corruption cases.

Good thing that the retirement age is at 60 only.One must think is it possible to work 7-8 hours per day at the age of 60+ and if it extends only thing will be persons presence in the office and will enjoy benefits but actual speeking for benefit to the govt will be zero from him.Unemployment problem that is first and foremost to think.Extending retirement age for the benefit of some countable persons is not at all good.So in my opinion do not repeat do not extend retirement age by two years at 62.Thanks
