7th Pay commission recommendations will decide the retirement age issues:- Present No Decrease or Increase in Retirement Age – Centre clarifies.

 The Centre has clarified in the Parliament that there are no plans to reduce the retirement age for Central Government employees. The Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh had said this via a written reply to a query in Rajya Sabha yesterday.  The Minister has already clarified that there are no plans to increase the retirement age to 62 in Rajya Sabha on 11th December 2014.   This puts to rest speculations that had been making the rounds for a number of weeks now.   The Minister also presented the details of the money spent as payment for the Central Government employees. According to his reply, Rs. 85,963.5 crores was spent in 2010-11; Rs.92,264.88 was spent in 2011-12; and Rs. 1,04,759.71 was spent in 2012-2013 for payments to employees of various Central Government organizations running all over the country.

To the question raised by Mr. Sardar Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, Dr. T. Subbarami Reddy and Mrs. Ambika Soni, Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh said that as per the recommendations of the 5th Pay Commission in 1997, the retirement age of Central Government employees was raised from 58 to 60.   The Pay Commission has the power to recommend an increase or decrease in the retirement age for Central Government employees. Will the 7th Pay Commission make any recommendation in this regard?

A New account named : “SUKANYA SAMRIDDHI ACCOUNT “ for Girl Child started:- 


NEW DELHI: The government has notified 'Sukanya Samriddhi Account', a new small savings instrument for the girl child that could be operated by her after the age of 10. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had announced the scheme in his budget speech in July.   The account can be opened and operated by the natural or legal guardian of a girl child till she attains the age of 10, after which she can herself operate it but deposits in the account may be made by the guardian or any other person or authority.   The account could be opened in a post office or a public sector bank. A depositor may open and operate only one account in the name of a girl child under these rules after furnishing birth certificate of the girl child along with other documents relating to identity and residence proof of the depositor.    Natural or legal guardian of a girl child will be allowed to open accounts for two girl children only except if the depositor has twin girls as second birth or if the first birth itself results into three girl children.   The government will notify interest rate on this scheme every year. The account may be opened with an initial deposit of Rs 1,000 and the reafter any amount in multiples of Rs 100 may be deposited, subject to the condition that a minimum ofRs 1,000 will be deposited in a financial year but the total money deposited in an account on a single occasion or on multiple occasions shall not exceed Rs 150,000 in a financial year.   Deposits may be made till completion of 14 years from the date of opening of the account, the notification said. The account shall mature on completion of 21 years from the date of opening of the account or if the girl gets married before that.  Withdrawals up to 50% will be allowed prior to maturity for high education and marriage.
From this available data we can conclude that:-
  1. This is just like PPF with extended benefits.
  2. But silent about income tax 80 C exemptions
  3. Rate of interest is not clear.
  4. Definitely which is a long plan .
  5. Only 50%  withdrawal facility available.( No. of withdrawals not clear)
  6. Final Withdrawal allowed  after 18 years if the girl gets married (or) 21 years from deposit date.
  7. Maturity of account is only after marriage of girl  and the deposits can be made by natural (or) legal guardian . The deposited amount  can not be useful./ withdraw by  the depositors.
  8. Claim procedure not clear :  If depositor (natural or legal guardian)  pre deceases is the deposit amount  shall retain for  21 years ? .  9.  Exact benefit of the scheme is not clear.
