No Move to Reduce Retirement Age of Government Employees: Centre

New Delhi: Strongly refuting the claims that the central government has introduced a proposal to lower the retirement age of public employees to 50 years, the ministry today clarified that there is no such plan to reduce the retirement age, nor has such a suggestion been discussed or considered at any stage in the country.

Union State Minister Dr Jitendra Singh categorically refuted the 'rumours' by saying,“there are certain motivated elements which have been over the last few days, time and again planting such disinformation in a section of media and attributing it to the government sources or DoP&T”. 

He said that any time a quick rebuttal is sought to clear the uncertainty in the minds of the stakeholders.

Despite the lockout constraints, he stated that DOPT had postponed the last date for filling out the Annual Performance Assessment Report (APAR).

He also recommended the UPSC to reschedule the deadlines of the IAS / Civil Services Interview / Personality Test and also declared that the Civil Services Preliminary Test would take place after 3 May. In the same way, SSC has also delayed its recruitment process.

As for the Personnel Department at the Ministry, Dr. Singh said there was false news last week that the government had agreed to implement a 30 percent cut in the pension and discontinue pensions for those beyond the age of 80. Contrary to this, moreover, the fact is that there was not a single retiree on March 31 whose pension did not deposit in his account.
