The Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second Amendment) Bill 2009 which sets the maximum age of 60 years or 35 years length of service for retirement of government employees was passed on the floor of the house on Friday. The Bill was passed with a slight amendment by giving a three months time for those government employees who will be affected by the bill to prepare themselves for retirement. With the passing of the bill, around 3000 government employees who have attained either 35 years of length of service or 60 years of age will go on retirement after three months. The state government will accrue an approximate estimated expenditure of about Rs.231.30 crores in terms of the total pensionary benefits from the consolidated fund of the State of Nagaland during the current financial year. Chief minister Neiphiu Rio asserted that the bill was brought to the house after being been thoroughly studied.
