All Constituents of the JCM (Staff Side)

Dear Comrades,

There are serious rumours in the air that the Department of Personnel & Training (Government of India) has mooted a proposal in regard to age of superannuation of the Central Government Employees, laying down condition of either 33 years of Qualifying Service or 60 years of age, whichever is earlier. It is also being claimed by several sources that, this proposal has already been sent to the Finance Ministry for their approval.

Also check: Central Government employees who have put in 33 years service or attained the age of 60 years, whichever is earlier, shall retire on superannuation

In this connection, it is clarified that, this has not to be given any cognizance since it is not possible without prior consultation with the JCM(Staff Side), being an important matter of the service condition, affecting the Central Government Employees.

Sincerely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary(Staff Side)
