What is the basic record the company relied up on. In General it should be SSC marks list, DOB certificate from School / Revenue officials / Gazetted officer / Medical officer etc.
As far as the TC which is from school or college is also an authentic document hence you need to accept failing which the employee may approach legally.

You mention that the office records the age of the employee as X years
May I ask the basis of recording the date in your database?
You mention his school LC/TC bears a date which is 4 years younger than the age recorded by your officials...
How come such huge mistake? DO you mean to say that the records or age proof was not submitted at the time of joining?
Is this a real case or a case study/ case-let?
Ideally most firms ask for age proof, residential proof and a photo id from an employee when he/she joins in a company.... Was this process not followed in your company? If the amendment was introduced later, did you not cover you existing employees in it and asked them to submit the documents as a part of verification process???

#AnonymousIn case of dispute in Date of Birth of an employee we can verify the same in his P.F. records i.e FORM 5 and also Data given to Gratuity records. We can also verify the employment Form which was filled by the employee at the time of his joining. I don,t know whether you are displaying his D.O.B and D.O.J in his pay slips. Whether employee has raised any dispute regarding his date of birth during the tenure of his service. There are so many judgments on Date of Birth disputes which depends merits and demerits of case to case.

The following may kindly be noted.
If it was a recording mistake of the HR ( or personnel department) that, despite the employee having submitted a proper TC, they had recorded it wrongly, then employee definitely gets a chance for extension.
If the employee had given other records showing some other date of birth while joining the service and now he is claiming a different date as per TC, then there is no chance for extension.
In case of many public sector companies the high courts/ Supreme court have held that dispute regarding the date of birth, at the fag end of service period is not accepted. Citations for these could be obtained from the e- version of labor law journals or any local lawyer can help.
However it is also the responsibility of the employee to ensure proper recording of his date of birth in the organization, which is possible through verifying various service records. If the organization has no system of any such records, then at least when the employees obtain service/ working certificate for applying to loans etc, the date of birth/ remaining year of service mentioned can be verified clearly.
Also many organizations have a system of indicting the date of birth and age of retirement in the appointment letter itself at the beginning.
If according to Vasukumar, nothing of the above has happened, then there is no way the employee can ask for the extension now.

This is a clear case where employee had made previous efforts to get the date of birth corrected and 'the management has erred"
Hence the employee has a better chance of getting this ruled in his favour if he approaches the court.
It makes sense for the management to accept the TC and provided the extension as sought for.
