For the time being you should know that we are waiting for 7th pay commission recommendations. The contradiction has arisen here as well.
According to the news, now the retirement age is going to be brought 2 years down. It simply means, the people who were going to be retired at 60 are now going to be retired at 58. In addition, previously the retirement age was either 33 years of service or 60 years age, which is now, according to the most recent news recommended to be, brought down to either 30 years of service or 55 years age, whichever comes first. This has thrown people outrageous over the internet.

7th pay commission about the retirement age
For the time being we are not sure if the news circulated on the internet is 100% true. But the rumor has it 7th pay commission is going to revise the retirement age as mentioned. To know the truth, the resources tried to contact the Federation. But no news could be got from them; they just told that any decision would only be taken if the people unanimously agree to it. Now we cannot say that it is just the social media spreading all the rumors.
In addition, our resources have told that decision of retirement age does not fall under the purview of the 7th pay commission. On the contrary, only the central government reserves the right to change the retirement age of the individuals.
When the question of retirement age and rumors about 7th pay commission were asked from the federation leaders that why do not they clear this confusion. They simply said that they do not want to pay any heed to the rumors. And this is the reason they have not spoken about this issue so far. According to the sources, they do not believe if 7th pay commission has forwarded any recommendations to change the retirement age. In addition, even if they had forwarded any such suggestions, they would not accept it –even if it is by the government.
