Dear Mr. Shekhavat,

In so far as employment in private sector is concerned no legal compulsion as to the maximum age of employment.Even if a particular age is prescribed as the age of superannuation in your Standing Orders certified under the Industrial Employment ( Standing Orders ) act,1946, it is well within the management's discretion to retain an efficient employee in service on extension basis or on retainer basis.but consistent or frequent practice of such a policy will be indicative of lack of succession planning in the organization, despotic individual orientation and inappropriate career advancement to aspiring junior employees that would result in low employee morale.In this regard, I would like to relate an interesting anecdote from the life of former Governor-General of India Shri. Chakravarthi Rajagopalachariar who is also fondly called as " Rajaji".When he was the Chief Minister of the then Madras Presidency, the Chief Engineer of the Public Works Department of the State was to retire from Govt. service on attaining the age of superannuation within a month.Lot of lobbeying went on for his extension of services right from the Secretariat staff to the level of the Minister for Public Works Portfolio because he was such a nice officer as well as a brilliant engineer having many credits to his professional career.So a detaied and favourable note was prepared explaining the Chief's integrity, honesty and efficiency and the need for his extension, approved by the PWD Secretary, Home Secretary, Chief Secretary and finally endorsed by the PWD Minster and submitted to the C.M for final approval and orders.Rajaji, an intellctual giant as well as an efficient administrator raised a query under the note - " Suppose unfortunately the individual dies tomorrow? "- and returned the file forthwith.All were taken aback by the C.M's query and the Chief-Secretary hurriedly wrote down the reply- " The next senior has to be promoted "- and went inside the C.M's chamber and placed the file for perusal again. Rajaji opened the file, read the revised note and wrote down " Please do that " and returned the file without a word or wink of the eye. The moral is : " the sailors may change but the ship has to go on ".
