Punjab university to increase retirement age of disabled professor
The Board of Finance (BoF) of Punjab University (PU) plans to consider increasing the retirement age of Prof Vijay Nagpal by two years, from 60 to 62 years because he has a physical disability. His lower body is 100% disabled.
If the decision is approved, other physically disabled teachers of the university will also benefit.
Prof Nagpal filed a petition this year in the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
He said that as per the notice of the central government, the retirement age for physically disabled persons is increased by two years.
A meeting will be held by the BoF on 28 November to discuss the issue.
