The high court on Wednesday 22nd June, ruled that the age of retirement for teachers working in government and government-aided colleges, drawing a scale of pay set by the University Grants Commission (UGC) would be 65 years.Justice Ananda Byrareddy issued this direction while hearing a petition filed by H. Harish, assistant professor, SJR College of Science and M. Albina, principal, Mount Carmel College.
The petitioners contended that under a regulation issued by UGC in 2010, the age of retirement for teachers drawing UGC scale of pay is 65 years. However, the state government made it 62 years in some colleges, and 65 years in some others. The government cannot implement UGC regulations in bits and pieces, the petitioners argued, seeking that the implementation of the UGC regulations be made uniform, so that all teachers drawing UGC pay scales retire at 65 years of age. The 2010 UGC regulation provided for a common revision of pay scales of teachers of universities and colleges (affiliated or constituent) established under the Central, State or Provincial Acts, and also enhanced retirement age to 65 years. Justice Ananda Byrareddy held that denial by the state government of the enhanced retirement age to college teachers violated the UGC Act and Regulations, and directed that petitioners H. Harish and M. Albina shall continue in service until they attain the age of retirement of 65 years. They could also avail all consequent benefits. Justice Byrareddy ruled that any executive government orders that contradict this direction would be overruled.
