New Delhi: The Centre on Tuesday denied rumours circulating in the social media about Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) having given clearance to a proposal for reducing the superannuation age of Central employees with effect from April 2020, government sources said.
"It is cleared by the government that the rumours are unfounded and baseless", said a source.
"It has been clarified that there is no such proposal."
As per the social media, the DoPT has finalized proposals for implementation of 33 years of service or 60 years age, whichever is early, for retirement on superannuation for all government employees and that the file has been sent to the Finance Ministry for implementation with effect from April 1, 2020.
