In an important judgement which has offered a ray of hope for the Panjab university teachers, the Supreme Court has extended the retirement age of a varsity professor from 60 to 65 years.
Prof. Shelly Walia of the English Department of Panjab University had filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court, requesting to extend retirement age from 60 to 65 years. In his petition, Prof Walia had claimed that as PU was a centrally-funded university, its teachers should be treated as par with central university teachers and should be given the same benefits.
He had stated that the Panjab University should follow UGC norms and guidelines. Passing the judgement on his petition on July 29th, the apex court extended his service tenure to 65 years. Prof Walia was to retire on July 31st.
