It’s known that AP state government increased the retirement age limit of their employees. The Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly unanimously passed a Bill enhancing retirement age of government employees to 60 years from 58. After the Andhra Pradesh government enacted a legislation enhancing the retirement age, leaders of Telangana employees started pressuring Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao seeking the facility.
Few months back a delegation of Telangana non-gazette officers association led by its president G. Deviprasad Rao represented its demand to the Chief Minister. But seems the Telangana government not in a mood to enhance the age limit and the government has made it clear that it would not raise retirement age of its employees under any circumstances.
Speaking in the Assembly during question hour on Thursday, Finance Minister Etela Rajender said that the youth were eagerly waiting for jobs after creation of the Telangana State and therefore the government has decided not to increase retirement age of 58 years. He said that 10,000 employees retire every year and there will be no vacancies if the retirement age is increased to 60 years.
