Voluntary Retirement Guidelines Pension Rules


Government servants may retire from service voluntarily with pensionary benefits before attaining the age of superannuation under the following provisions of Fundamental Rules and CCS (Pension) Rules,




It may be seen that a notice of voluntary retirement under FR 56(k) or Rule 48 (1)(a) of Pension Rules does not require acceptance. 

It is only in the case of a government servant under suspension that the appropriate authority may withhold permission to retire under these rules. 

This is unlike the notice under Rule 48(A) of Pension rules which requires acceptance by the appointing authority. In case of notice under FR 56 (m) even the right to refuse if the government servant is under suspension, is not available to the Government.

(The Rules mentioned above are available in the relevant Rules Book viz., FR&SR Compilation and CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972).

In addition to the above, permanent employees declared surplus in any Ministry / Department may opt for Special Voluntary Retirement Scheme. Detailed guidelines for this purpose have been issued by DoPT
