CHQ is getting a lot of queries with regards to the rumours about reduction of the retirement age from 60 to 58. CHQ is aware that serious discussions are going on at the government level, on this matter. BSNLEU, in it’s letter, written to Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Hon’ble MoC & IT on 06.06.2019, has demanded that the assurance given by the government, at the time of formation of BSNL, should be honoured. The assurance given in the year 2000, about retirement age is that, only Government Rule would be made applicable to BSNL. As per the existing government rule, retirement age is 60. We hope that the government will honour it’s assurance given in the year 2000. Hence, we request the members not to get panicky.
