Expectations for 50% DA Merger and Retirement age turn into disappointments

‘All Predictions are governed by the law of probability’. Based on this principle everybody started predict something about 50% DA Merger, Retirement Age and Interim relief. But none of which have materialized.

The print and e- media made the people believe that the central government had done lot of things including above for central government employees. But it was merely media hype. Apart from 7th pay commission approval government had done nothing for central government employees.

There is a saying “Never get too attached to someone, because attachments lead to expectations and expectations lead to disappointments”

But it is not true here in respect of central government employees. They are bound to expect something like 50% DA merger and interim relief from government, as the federations were assured by central government some of their demand would be considered. Based on this assurance they deferred their Strike call for which 85% of employees mandated.

So there is nothing wrong in their expectation from the central government for considering the demands of Merger of 50% DA and granting interim relief.

But central government made this saying true, “Expectations are setting one up for disappointment”

Retirement age of 65: The Politicization of Employees’ Demands

65 as Retirement Age: Employees Demand Becomes Electoral Manifesto Issue

 Once again, raising the retirement age has started making headlines. But this time, they are not rumours or false stories. There is some truth in it. A recognized political party has promised to increase the retirement age of state government employees from 60 to 65. 

'Samajwadi Party'
In the election manifesto released yesterday, the party has promised to raise the retirement age of the state employees to 65. 

Not 62, but 65..!

Retirement age for state government employees differ from state to state. Since the state governments do not follow the Central Government’s retirement age at 60, the demand has now started to show up in election manifestos of different states. 

State governments have the power to decide the retirement ages of its employees. The recent Budget happenings of the Kerala State Government in this issue are well known.  

Last year, there were a number of developments in this issue for the employees of Uttar Pradesh State Government. Since employees getting job at the age of 40 and retiring at 60 will not be able to complete qualifying service hence, will be devoid of benefits such as gratuity. Therefore, a demand was put forth to increase the retirement age..! 

While replying to this question, Minister Mohd Azam Khan said that the State Government had no plans to raise the retirement age. He also accepted that the maximum age for recruitment for State Government employment has been changed to 40. He said that there were currently no plans of increasing retirement age because it would adversely affect the employment opportunities of others. 

Amidst these situation, it is worth noting that the Samajwadi party, in its election manifesto, has announced that it would increase the retirement age to 65.
