If it is true that GOI seriously considering to hike the retirement age of Central Government Employees as has been reported in some news papers, such an announcement cannot made till the election process to 5 states are completed i.e till 15th May. Therefore the employees who are due to retire upto May 2011 cannot be benefited out of this decision. There is also a strong school of thought that the retirement age should not be increased beyond 60 years. They are of the opinion that it will increase the level of unemployment in the country and the youth will feel frustrated. The level of efficiency will also come down with the increased age and those who are below in the ladder will get unmotivated due to lesser avenues for promotion. Let us see what happens after 15th May.
