In a move that will benefit over 10 million central and state government employees, besides those in the defence services, the ministry of personnel is finalising a proposal to raise the retirement age of central government officials from 60 to 62 years.

If approved by the Cabinet, this will be the second time in nine years that the retirement age will be raised.

Do you think this would be a right move on the government's part?

Or do you feel 60 is just the appropriate age for retirement?

Would the retirement age enhancement be beneficial to retain the collective experience in government work?
