The Industrial Employment Standing Orders Act/Rules which contains Model Standing Orders wherein age of retirement is stated to be 58years in the absence of any agreement between workers and the management to the contrary.

The trend in industry largely is to follow Model Standing Orders rather than go for certification which is fraught with lot of procedural hassles particularly if you have an active union in the organisation and even if go for it , very little change from MSO becomes possible in the face of objections from the union.
Whether you have certified SO or MSO, the age of retirement is part of it which has legal binding if the Act is applicable.

Looking from the practical point of view and my experience, there is no significant gain in going for certification at any stage in the face of likely objections from the union or even from the certifying officer. What you may be able to achieve is minor changes in some procedural matters such as attendance , exit /entry ,or additions in the misconducts provided they are not inconsistent with existing law.
In my view MSO are quite adequate to take care of service conditions and it's implentation and that is why large number of organisations follow them.
