Retirement age and supernumerary posts[edit]

Earlier the age of retirement of all government employees was unified as the last day of the financial year in which they attain the age of 55 years. As a result, a large number of posts fall vacant on the same day causing difiiculties in smooth functioning of the government. As per the amendment published on 26 March 2012, retirement will take place on the afternoon of the last day of the month in which he/she attains the age of 56 years. However teaching staff will continue in service till last day of the month in which academic year ends. If the day on which the teaching staff attains age of 56 years falls within one month of reopening of the academic year, they shall cease to be on duty with effect from the date of such reopening and shall be granted leave to the last day of the month.
