Uncertainty over retirement age galore: Buck must stop?

By IndianMandarins- 21 Sep 2019


For the past few years the ghost of retirement age has been haunting civil servants over and over again. It not only makes them apprehensive but keeps them on tenterhooks as well leaving them clueless that who’s and what purpose does it serve? And at what cost?


Sometime it is about lowering the retirement from 60 to 58 and sometime it is about increasing it from 60 to 62. The rumours keep oscilating between 58 to 62. Both ways the only certainty about retirement age is that there is uncertainty. Is this the response to clarion call made on employment generation?


This doesn’t seem to be the answer rather it is keeping bureaucracy in flux making their work hamper especially those who are at important positions. Moreover, it is the responsibility of the government of the day to clarify on issues like this traveling in public domain. But if the government wants to keep its officials at tenterhooks by such ambiguity, its prudence will be questioned for sure!
