Kozhikode: CPI National Executive Committee
Member Panyan Ravindran on Monday asked the Kerala government to
reconsider its decision to raise the retirement age of state
government employees to 56 years from the existing 55.

Talking to reporters here, Ravindran said raising the
retirement, announced in the state budget, would affect a
large number of educated unemployed in the state.

In a state like Kerala, increasing the retirement age would
lead to a dangerous situation.
