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.

BJP to train its MPs on public speaking, ideology in a two day camp

By IndianMandarins 02 Aug 2019

New Delhi: To tell its lawmakers how to behave, the ruling party at the Centre -- Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- has planned a two-day training camp in the Balayogi Auditorium in New Delhi on August 3-4, 2019. Every member of Parliament of the BJP from both the houses will have to compulsory show up at the event to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with many other senior leaders.

The BJP leaders are of the view that this is an attempt of the saffron outfit to train and sensitise all its 381 members of Parliament on the issues related to parliamentary practice, debates, party ideology, public speech, handling media and even the internal issues of the party.

The meeting is important because of the fact that training session would give clarity to the BJP MPs on ideological issues which is important for the BJP. They will also be told not to speak out of turn and on such subjects that they are not well equipped with. The meeting will not only attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on both days but he is likely to speak at the event as well.

Sources in the BJP said that the meeting will also be addressed by speakers not only from the BJP but outside the party as well on specialized subjects. Besides the PM and Union Home minister Amit Shah, there is a possibility that party general secretary and in-charge of BJP training cell Muralidhar Rao might also address it. All the MPs have been asked to attend this meeting without a miss. Actually the BJP wants to pull string on some of motor mouths in the party by telling them how to speak saving the party from any unnecessary controversy and embarrassment due to some of its own leaders.

Sources further informed that this is a hectic meeting that would start at 9 am and would finish at 9 pm. MPs will get breakfast, lunch and dinner at the venue itself. Training cell of the BJP has major role to play in it as it is continuously doing the same but at smaller level. It will take up many issues including etiquette and how to deal with media which is a major concern of the party.

Sources are not ready to divulge any further detail about the programme but the purpose of the entire exercise is to ensure that certain basic things are required for a MP, minister and people having organizational responsibilities.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) too keeps on doing such training camps for its workers but this would be the first such event when all BJP MPs will be participating in such a mega event that is dubbed as (Abhyas Varg).

MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions Dr Jitendra Singh launched the e-Civil List-2019 of the IAS Officers. This is the 64th edition of Civil list and for the first time, the Civil list contains photographs of the IAS officers.
