The shocking news for government employees has come out. The central government is preparing to reduce the retirement age of its officers and employees. Under the proposed proposal, there will be two criteria for determining the retirement age limit. In the first measure
The employee has completed 33 years of service. In the second criterion, the employee’s age is 60 years. The government’s decision will have the most impact on the security forces. The military and other security forces have been on average for about 22 years, so their 33 years of service will be completed in 55 years.
Regarding the decision, the government says this is not a new initiative. In fact, this is discussed in the Seventh Pay Commission. The government wants to implement this retirement system to eliminate the backlog problem. Doing so will pave the way for new recruits. The problem of workers who complained about not getting timely promotion will be removed. DoPT sources say work has begun on the proposal. The list of officers and employees is being prepared in almost every department. The scheme will be implemented in several stages. A report is also being made about its financial provisions. Following the approval of the Finance Ministry, new retirement rules will be implemented from next fiscal year.
Sources say that after two years of service there is no major economic change in the salary category of an officer or employee, but when they work for sixty years, the promotion of their juniors is hampered. The central government has argued that according to 33 years of service or 60 years of age, whichever comes first, retirement benefits not only the government but also other workers. The lateral entry scheme will be well implemented.
At the same time, if new opportunities for promotion arise. New jobs will also be paved. This way the backlog problem will also be solved. The scheme covers all categories of jobs from IAS, IPS to Central Government.
