'Linking retirement age with unemployment implausible'
Srinagar: Employees’ Joint Action Committee (K) on Friday said it was implausible and unjustified to link the increase of retirement age of employees with problem of unemployment.
In a statement today, the JCC senior leader and EJAC (K) general secretary Muntazir Mohi-ud-Din welcomed the chief minister Omar Abdullah’s statement that the enhancement of retirement age of employees was under the serious consideration of the government.
Quoting the S L Bhat Committee report, Muntazir said from 3700 to 3900 employees were retiring every year and it would not in any way resolve the problem of unemployment. There are nearly 85000 post graduate and graduate jobless youth in the whole state while there are vacancies of 1.2 lakh posts in different departments of state. “The government has enough vacancies to absorb all the qualified jobless youth. The enhancement of retirement age by two years, therefore, should not be linked with the unemployment problem,” he said.
