Maharashtra denies hike in retirement age

The demand of various Employees unions for raising retirement age of Maharashtra State Government from 58 to 60 Years was rejected by the State Government.

This was stated by Chief minister Mr. Prithviraj Chavan approved the department’s stand.
While unions had argued that the extension was in line with the Centre’s policy, the state said such a move would hurt job flow in the public sector. The unions had further argued that states like Goa, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Karnataka had already raised the retirement age to 60 but the department reasoned that states like Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh had retained the retirement age of 58.
Increasing the retirement age would also delay fresh postings for promoted employees, the department said. It claimed that it had received application from employees opposing the demand. A move to enhance the retirement age would have enabled the government to defer payments of lump sum retirement benefit by two years.
