Telangana government has released its first pay revision committee report extending the TS Employee retirement age from 58 years to 60 years. The PRC committee, in 278 page-long report, recommended 7.5 per cent basic fitment to employees on basic pay.
Enhancement of Age of Superannuation (Retirement Age): As per the TS PRC 2021 recommendations, the age of superannuation is extended from 58 years up to 60 years. Government of India employees superannuate at the age of 60 years. A good number of major states have the superannuation as 60 years (i.e. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Punjab, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, etc.).
The longevity of people in general and Government employees in particular is increasing, thanks to better health care, nutrition and consciousness of health. Thus the productive age is also increasing.
New recruits to the Government are joining the service at higher age due to age relaxation. Two more years in service helps them settle their children before they superannuate.
A large number of vacancies in certain important posts exist in various departments. Retirement would deplete the strength of the departments. While retaining the talents for 2 years, Government may take action to fill up the important posts on priority in this period. The Class-IV employees of the State are also superannuating at the age of 60 years as per the existing rules.
Therefore, the Telangana PRC Commission recommends to extend the superannuation age to 60 years on a regular basis which will be applicable to all the employees who are on rolls and those who would be recruited.
The government can take a view on implementation date. For working out the maximum pay, the annual increment will be around 2.33 per cent. The maximum pay scale would be Rs.1.63 lakh.
For every one per cent increase in DA sanctioned by GoI, the DA to be sanctioned by the state to its employees would be 0.910 % for the DA. This will be implemented from a back date of January 1st, 2019.
