Retirement age galore: Indianmandarins’ reports proved accurate

Lowering the retirement age of the Central Govt employees had been the most discussed issue in past few months. Several such versions were floating across media claiming each of them to be authentic one but it was Indianmandarins which relied on its own top sources and its successive news reports denying any such move of lowering the retirement age from 60 yrs to 58 yrs.  

Indianmandarins questioned (21.09.2019) the growing uncertainty over retirement age issue and made an effort (23.09.2019) to expose the rumours through a reality check. Terming the rumour on ‘proposal of lowering the retirement age’ a ghost Indianmandarins in its report dated 05.11.2019 underlined that “....contrary to the rumours Indianmandarins’ learnt through some key officials that no such proposal has been initiated as yet.”

Finally, Union Minister for Personnel Dr Jitendra Singh (on 27.11.2019) said in a written reply to Lok Sabha; "No Sir. Presently, there is no proposal to reduce age of retirement on superannuation from 60 years to 58 years,"

It may be underlined that MPs Kaushal Kishore and Upendra Singh Rawat had asked whether there was any proposal before the government to decrease the retirement age of central government employees from 60 years to 58 years or under article 56(J) of compulsory retirement on attaining the age of 50 years.

Further, in his reply, the Dr Jitendra Singh said that there were provisions under Fundamental Rules 56(j), Rule 48 of Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972 and Rule 16(3) (Amended) of All India Services (Death-cum-Retirement Benefits) Rules, 1958, according to which the government has the absolute right to retire officials prematurely, on the ground of lack of integrity or ineffectiveness, in public interest, by giving notice of not less than three months in writing or three months' pay and allowances in lieu of such notice.

Former finance secretary says, his exit was bit unceremonious

Pain of apparent humiliation came to his face when senior officer Subhash Chandra Garg (IAS:1983:RJ), who retired on October 31 on voluntary basis after he was shifted from the post of the finance secretary to the power secretary.

Without mincing word, Garg said that his postings as the head of the finance departments at the Centre and in Rajasthan ended ‘little bit unceremoniously’. “It is not that I was immune to the consequences of my independent and unconventional ways of functioning. It might be a little strange, but all my postings as chief of finance departments in the state (Rajasthan) and at the Centre ended little bit unceremoniously,” he tweeted.

The power secretary was of the view that he was an independent-minded officer who implemented bold and unconventional decisions that may have not kept his bosses in good humour sometimes. He said he could have become the longest-serving finance secretary if he had held the post until his superannuation in October 2020.
