Forced retirement: CCGEW threatens for serious agitational programs?

By IndianMandarins- 07 Sep 2020


The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers (CCGEW) has strongly opposed the move of the Govt of India against its unilateral and arbitrary imposition of provisions of Rules FR56(J) and Rule 48(H) Pension Rules to retire the government employees pre-maturely and forcibly

The Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) had on 28.08.2020 issued an OM (No. 25013/03/2019-ESTT-A 4)  underlining that the Govt of India has the power to pre-maturely retire any government official who has completed 30 years of service and attained the age of 50-55 years on various vague grounds as such “Doubtful integrity”, “ineffectiveness”. CCGEW terms it as petty allegations.

CCGEW apprehends that above mentioned OM gives infinite power to the authority to pick and choose the targeted employees for such forced premature retirement and the victim employee will not be given any opportunity to explain as natural justice demands. After retirement, he can approach advisory committee appointed by the Govt of India.

The Confederation further adds that this order snatches away one’s basic rights of employees and Unions and in violation of Labour Laws.

Demanding the withdrawal of the said OM CCGEW strongly opposes the so-called authoritarian and arbitrary move else it would launch a serious of serious agitational programs.
