In a good news, the Tamil Nadu government on Thursday enhanced the retirement age of its employees, including teachers and PSU staff, to 60 years. Chief Minister K Palaniswami who raised the retirement age of government employees by a year, made an announcement in the Assembly under rule 110 that the increase will apply to all serving government employees including government and aided educational institutions, PSUs and local bodies, and those who retire on May 31, 2021.
In May last year, the CM had increased the retirement age of government employees to 59 from 58 years.
The gesture came into immediate effect and the government came out with an order (GO) to give effect to the chief minister's announcement.
Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu transport workers affiliated to nine trade unions commenced their indefinite strike on Thursday demanding the government to conclude the 14th wage revision talks immediately, leaving several commuters stranded across the state.
The strike by the unions, including DMK-affiliated LPF, CITU, AITUC and INTUC, is also to seek pending terminal benefits of workers retired from 2020 and non-allocation of funds in the budget to compensate the losses incurred by the corporation which is a service sector.
The strike caused hardship to commuters, particularly students and office goers. Nearly 50 percent buses plied in the state capital during the early hours and the number of government buses that operated in several districts was abysmally low.
