All CAPF personnel to retire at 60 years: Govt order

NEW DELHI: All Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) personnel will now retire at a uniform age of 60 years, a Government order said on Monday.

The Union Home Ministry order said all personnel of the forces — the Central Reserve Police Force, Border Security Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Sashastra Seema Bal — will superannuate at the age of 60, instead of 57 years for certain rank of officials.

The development pertains to a January order of the Delhi High Court where it had called the current policy of different age of superannuation in these four forces as “discriminatory and unconstitutional” and said it created two classes in the uniformed forces. (AGENCIES)
