Retirement at 70 too much. As age advances there is biological decay both of Physique and Brain. Cells do not get repatred or the intensity of replacement of cells gets diminished.
A Sports Man gets retired ar 35-37-since they spend energy at greater rate-they retire early, In my opinion, even the Politicians should retire at 70-none in India can occupy any Public posts after 70-only because of biological decay-Every body-doctors/engineers/IAS officers/Scientists retire at 70-then why not our elected members-politicians/Governors-More over their retirement will pave the way for new faces.
If voluntary retirement is not agreed-there should be law-constitution ammendment to this effect. But who will bail the cat? why in India people give so much importance to physical age of a person ?
if so, Retirement age suppose to be same for all employees in Govt./Public Sector and semi Govt. etc. In this way the Goverment benifits like salary plus other perks can enjoy equally to all.
To my opinion : Retirement at 70 too much.
Retirement age of 70 years for National Sports Federation office bearers is still too much.
Can't say 1%
