Jammu & Kashmir Employees Retirement Age hiked to 60, on par with Central Government Staff

During the cabinet meeting of June 3 that was presided over by J&K Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, it was decided to increase the retirement age of state employees from 58 to 60, on par with the Central Government employees.

It is worth mentioning here that the resolution marks the successful culmination of more than 6 years of protests and demands made by various employees unions across the state. There are also talks that the decision was made with the Lok Sabha elections in mind, which are due at the end of this year. 

The minimum age limit to qualify for state government employment has also been increased by three years to 40.

A copy of the Government Order in this regard is given here.

Present Central GOVT is in favor of young Indians who are in search of Job and definitely Modiji sarkar will not increase the age of retirement.In fact age should be reduced to 55 in order to get opportunity for young Indians to work for India .Young Indian only can stops all corrupt practice In India .Young Indians are the backbones of India.They can work efficiently ,honestly and during short span of time they can obtained working skill also. Hence the age of retirement should be reduce to 55.
