Chief Minister Oommen Chandy has said that the government will hold consultations with service organisations before finalising the terms of reference of the 10th Pay Commission.

He was inaugurating the 28{+t}{+h}State conference of the Congress-led Kerala Gazetted Officers’ Union (KGOU) here on Wednesday.

Mr. Chandy said while there was justification in the employees’ demand for increasing their retirement age, the government position on the issue was quite clear.

The decision to raise the retirement age of new entrants into the State service to 60 years was proof of this, he said.

Mr. Chandy said the government did not wish to see even a single person complain that he or she did not get employment because of the high retirement age in the State service.

That being the case, there was no question of the government increasing the retirement age without allaying the fears of the youth, Mr. Chandy said.
