Raise age of retirement to 65: House panel

A parliamentary panel has urged the Centre to raise the retirement age to 65 years.

NEW DELHI: A parliamentary panel has urged the Centre to raise the retirement age to 65 years, noting that growing lifespan was adding to the need for "productive ageing". 

The recommendation for increase in retirement age comes with a reminder that senior citizens would form 12.4% of the total population in 2026 from 7.5% in 2001.

"The committee feels that with the increase in life expectancy and relatively better state of health of people, the government needs to look at continuity of employment up to 65 years," said the report of standing committee of Parliament on social justice and empowerment tabled on Friday.

It also recommended that government look at greater post-retirement opportunities for senior citizens and create greater financial support for the elderly by hiking the old age pension to Rs 1,000 per month from the present Rs 200 for those above 60 years and Rs 500 for those above 80 years.

While suggesting immediate redressal for the ageing population, the panel sought to train the government's focus on the 60-plus group by pointing out that its growing numbers would be a serious challenge in health and social care.

Specifically, it underlined that as per population projections, the 80-plus bloc, the most-vulnerable group, would see a sharper rise in numbers.

The urgency of parliamentarians towards senior citizens comes amid growing global realization that increasing lifespan is creating a new demographic bloc requiring state intervention.

Seeking government attention, the committee noted that senior citizens comprised 7.5% of the total population in 2001 but their share is likely to increase to 12.4% in 2026. Importantly, UN projections say while India's population will rise by 55% by 2050, that of 60-plus would increase by 326% and that of 80-plus would go up by 700%.

Given the rising challenge, the panel headed by Hemanand Biswal found the government response inadequate, noting that "issue of rapid population ageing in the country has not received due attention of the government and the community at large".

The panel said special focus should be on the octogenarian bloc. "This age group is the most vulnerable and runs the risk of getting dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson disease, depression in their older years," it said, and asked the Centre to constitute an expert group of relevant government departments to devise specialized healthcare programme for them.

GOVERNMENT REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE MAIN DEMANDS OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OFFICERS & EMPLOYEES.
CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT.GAZETTED OFFICERS ORGANISATION(CCGGOO) CALLS
UPON THE ENTIRE CG OFFICERS & EMPLOYEES TO PROTEST AGAINST THE ARBITRARY AND UNILATERAL DECISION OF THE GOVERNMENT.
The Government has not decided to grant Interim Relief and merger of
Dearness allowance. Nor has it asked the Commission to consider and make appropriate recommendation in this regard specifically. Inclusion of a
labour representative in the Commission being not an idea the UPA Government cherishes, for it is diametrically opposite to its economic policies and ideology, they have stuck to the position of sandwiching the Honourable Judge with bureaucrats. Our demands for parity between the past
and present pensioners and scrapping of the new pension scheme also stand rejected.
The 6th CPC (and the earlier Commissions also)had refused to entertain the demand for removal of anomalies despite Government referring the same to the Commission specifically. Therefore, the omnibus clause in the terms of reference requiring the Commission to submit interim reports may not be of any help to us to raise the anomalies before the 7th CPC.
At the conclusion of the meeting held by Secretary, DoPT, with the staff side on terms of reference of the 7th CPC, it was agreed that the Government will consider our suggestion in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out
the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter. But no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the official side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference.
CCGGOO CONDEMNS THE ATTITUDE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN NOT HONOURING ITS COMMITMENT OF HOLDING DISCUSSION WITH THE STAFF SIDE BEFORE FINALISING THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF THE 7TH CPC AND DEMAND IMMEDIATE ACCEPTANCE
OF :
(1)Interim Relief
(2)Merger of DA
(3)Date of effect from 1/1/2011
(4)Parity in pension entitlement between the past and present pensioners.
(5)Coverage of the existing defined benefit pension scheme to employees
recruited on or after 1.1.2004.
(6)Include a representative of the Labour in the 7th Central Pay Commission.
(7)Settle the anomalies

Kind Attn: Mr. PM and other cabinet members.

Sir,

Pls try to increase the retirement age of Govt. employees by minimum 5 years as already said by Samajwadi Party's Head Mulayam Singh in his Election manifesto. As this order of yours will support thousand of middle class families to bring themselves to the path of progress as they were pushed far behind by the Congress Govt.

And also help them to live their lives in a better way as mostly of them are totally depending upon the persons who is the sole earner of the family and going to be retired by the next year or so on.

So, pls take the above said points into your considerations and do the needful at the earliest.

Increasing retirement age from 60 to 62 years shall give in positive results. Many essential /new infra projects have been planned in our country but due to no availability of budgetary support /allocation, the projects either delayed , discarded or not worked out . Increasing retirement age shall instantly generate huge amount of funds in government treasury for current time and so on regularly due to holding on payment of retirement benefits. In addition, this will automatically contribute to continuous availability of the matured skill , source funds for launching of essential /new projects , earning of more revenue from taxes ,lesser expenses on pension as well as generation of employment through new projects etc. These are the needs of the time for our nation to come in parity with other countries of the world who have adopted /implemented the policy of enhancing the retirement age much earlier and now are more advanced .Further, it has been observed that life expectancy, however increased continuously over past few decades due to better and improved medical facilities and more health cautiousness among elderly people. Also, it has been seen that people use to re-join jobs in private organisation after being retired from government sector. They now , get pay packet and enjoy pension as well with retirement benefits ( PF, GRATUITY, LEAVE ENCASHMENT,PENSION SURRENDER … ) . Government /people should think over the issue whether there is gain or loss for the nation .

Respected P.M. Sir and his cabinet colleagues, may I draw your kind attention to say that your honour is proceeding towards revamping / reforming our country to categorize it as a developed nation by 2025 rather by 2024, considering at least 2 full tenures of your stay in the Parliament (though i do hope it will be more than that). For the purpose, the experienced, sincere, efficient and able government employees should have been utilized by increasing the retirement age from 60 to 65 or at least to 62 years with immediate effect or latest by 2014. It is not out of place to mention that by the period of 2025 or so, the present nature of Govt.work force must have to be down sized in a natural phenomenon like all other developed nation. Youngsters, better to say young generation could have been utilized in the sectors of IT, Computer Science, Electronics & Communications/ Tele-Communications, Power (particularly Nuclear Power as well as Solar Power) and so many which will be , in those days, developed for export leading to a strong positive balance of trade.Your kind consideration is sought for. With regards, Anonymous

Is Modi Government following the same formula of Rahul Gandhi for not extending the retirement age of Central Govt. employees to 62 for the sake of youngsters? Absolutely, it's a bogus logic keeping aside all the strong points so raised by the several Govt. Agencies. Or else they are shaky enough to take such decision? Hope, wise decision will prevail very very soon. Anonymous

To improve the productivity of the nation and to provide employment to large number of EDUCATED AND QUALIFIED YOUTH it is advisable not to raise the age of retirement for the next ten years or at least till the percentage of senior citizens above the age of 65 exceeds 10.

It is also often seen and felt that those government servants who attains the age of 58 years looses interest in the work they are doing and dedication to government duty which is considered as God's duty, dwindled. The government servant and or his spouse starts exhibiting the symptoms of old age.More concerned about the family, aged parents / parents-in-laws, children and grand children, like to spend time with them or in privacy with turning towards more philosophic, visit to pilgrim centers/conducting pilgrimages etc. Thus the productivity of these employees often gets reduced to 50% and in some even much lower.
At this crucial time of development with large number of young population around, it is advisable to effectively utilize the young people and increase the national productivity rather than go in for marginal and partisan political gains.

LET EVERY ONE OF US CONTRIBUTE TO INCREASE THE NATIONAL PRODUCTIVITY AND PARTICIPATE IN BUILDING THE NATION.

Neither increase the age and nor decrease the age, their should be any person to guide the young gens. Their is a huge talent bank in the front and in the back bench. PM should launch any scheme to utilise both talents. After launching this type of scheme we will be no.1 in whole world.
