Varsity staff retirement age raised to 62 in AP

The Andhra Pradesh cabinet on Wednesday approved a proposal to increase the retirement age of teaching and non-teaching staff of all universities in the state from the present 60 to 62 years.

The cabinet also approved a proposal to increase the retirement age of teachers working in government-aided schools from the present 58 to 60 years.

The two decisions are set to benefit over 2 lakh employees working in school and higher education departments.

In other decisions, the cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, cleared the draft Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) bill and decided to place it before the assembly on December 19. An initial sum of Rs 250 crore has been allotted for CRDA.

The cabinet approved some of the amendments proposed by the municipal administration department to ensure full powers to the CRDA on all civic matters related to the capital region. While the CM will be the chairman of the authority, municipal administration minister will act as vice-chairman and five IAS officers as members.

Apart from this, the cabinet cleared five bills to be placed before the assembly during the winter session. They include a bill related to change in tax structure on aviation fuel and amendments to the Forest Act to enable more stringent action against red sanders smugglers which, however, has to be sent to the Centre for approval. The bill aims at making the forest employees accountable for the smuggling activities as well as ensuring protection of valuable forest reserves.

The cabinet also identified 226 mandals as drought-hit and the list of such mandals is to be forwarded to the Centre for necessary financial help.

Rice procurement in the districts was reviewed by the cabinet and it was decided that paddy farmers will be allowed to sell their produce in the state after levy of nominal tax and central sales tax for sale in other states, including Telangana.
