Maharashtra: Kathua committee recommends retirement age govt employees should be 58 years
SHARES

The Khatua committee appointed by the Maharashtra government has recommended that the retirement age of government officials should remain 58 years. The committee has ruled that the age of retirement can’t be increased to 60 years. 

Earlier, there was a demand that the retirement age of government officials and employees should be increased to 60 years instead of 58. The Maharashtra government had set up a committee to look into the demands. The retirement age of central government employees is 60 years while it differs from state to state.

However, Maharashtra State Gazetted Officers Federation has opposed this saying that the report of Khatua Committee on raising the retirement age was ineffective and incomprehensible.

The recommendations made by the Khatua committee on the issue are as follows: 

  • The retirement age should be 58 years. 
  • Retirement age of Group-D employees should be re-examined and the same should be done for other category employees. 
  • At the same time, the government may give opportunities to those who want to work till 60 years of age in public and governmental interest. 

The committee appointed by the government brought out the report under the chairmanship of BC Khatua. The report was finally obtained with the help of the Right of Information (RTI) act. 

However, the Maharashtra State Gazetted Officers Federation has opposed the recommendations made by the committee in its report. It said that this was the first document to be presented in an irresponsible manner.
