No proposal to raise retirement age of govt servants: V Narayanasamy

NEW DELHI: There is no proposal at present to increase the age of retirement of central government employees to 62 years, Rajya Sabha was informed today. 

As per rules, every government servant shall retire on attaining the age of 60 years, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanasamy said in a written reply. 

"At present, there is no proposal to increase the age of retirement of government employees," he said. 

There are about 50 lakh central government employees working in various departments including the railways across the country. 

Recent media reports had claimed that the government was working on a proposal to increase the age of service by two years as part of government's plan to defer payouts in the form of pensions and other payments to check fiscal deficit. 

The Centre had in 1998 raised the retirement age of its employees to 60 from 58 years.
