Besides lowering the retirement age from 60 to 58, the government also increased the upper age limit for recruitments.
” The retirement age of employees has been reduced to 58 years from 60 years. In case of Class IV employees and persons with disabilities, the retirement age would be 60 years instead of 62 years. All employees who had completed 58 or 60 years in their respective categories and are still serving would be retired on November 30, 2014. The upper age limit for fresh recruitment would remain 42 years. This decision had been taken to ensure maximum employment opportunity to the youth,” Chief Minister,Manohar Lal Khattar said while addressing media persons after the cabinet meeting.
