I’m completely against a fixed retirement age. Why should some one be forced to retire at 58 or 60? (or even worse, earlier than that in the name of VRS). I have seen many people succumb to inactivity and boredom. Many were relatives and other people known to me… and most of them were bank employees. Tell me how should a bank employee use his knowledge for the remaining 15-20 years of his life?
Let people work as long as they can physically sustain work and as long as they have the willingness to work. Let there be no restriction of age.
PS: This is my personal view.
