ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (DR. SHASHI THAROOR)

(a) to (c)    The retirement age for all the employees of the Kendriya Vidyalayas Sangathan (KVS) and the Navodaya Vidyalayas Samithi (NVS), including the teaching staff, is 60 years. The age of retirement for the teaching faculty in the centrally funded Higher and Technical institutes was enhanced from 62 to 65 years vide an Order issued by Department of Higher Education in March, 2007. These orders are applicable to the teachers, who are actually engaged in teaching classes/courses/programmes of study in such institutions. At present, no proposal to enhance the retirement age of lecturers of the National Council of Educational Research & Training (NCERT) to 65 years is under the consideration of this Ministry.
