A fake news is being circulated in social media that Centre is mulling to reduce retirement age of Central Govt. employees. A fake whatsapp message is being circulated as under :
“DOPT has finalized proposals for implementation of 33 years service or 60 years age whichever is early for retirement on superannuation for all Government employees. File sent to finance ministry for implementation w. e. f. 1.4.2020”
Some websites and blogs related to Central Employees are also backing the propaganda.
Official sources, however, said: “The rumours circulating in the social media about DoPT having given clearance to a proposal for reducing the age of superannuation of central Government employees with effect from April 1, 2020, are unfounded and baseless. It has been clarified that there is no such proposal”.
A number of leading newspaper reported that this is a rumour and there is no such move. One can go through the newspaper reports by clicking the following links.
