New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday held that the time scale group captain in the Indian Air Force will retire at the age of 57 years.

The apex court bench headed by Justice TS Thakur held this while rejecting the government appeal against the Armed Forces Tribunal order holding that time scale group captain would retire at the age of 57 and not at 54 as it is at present.

Pronouncing the order, Justice Thakur said that the appeal is dismissed.

Under the existing rule, the time scale group captain retires at the age of 54 and the group captain in select category retires at the age of 57 years.
