PM Khan Forms Committee to Finalize Extension in Retirement Age

Prime Minister Imran Khan has formed a committee to finalize a three-year extension in the retirement age for the federal employees.

Dr. Ishrat Hussain, who is also leading the Task Force on the Civil Services Reforms (CSR), will head the committee. Secretaries from the Defence, Finance and Establishment Divisions will also be part of it.

Prime Minister Khan is personally interested in the proposal because it will ease the burden on the national exchequer.

He had even asked the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to consider increasing the retirement age limit of civil servants and early retirement of deadwood.

However, the task force on CSR is delaying the move.

The task force under Dr. Ishrat considered the proposal in June but decided to postpone it until the finalization of some fundamental reforms for the sector.

The members of the committee also agreed that extension should be based on merit, efficiency, and performance.

If the amendment is approved, the retirement age of federal government employees will be extended to 63 years.
