Right to voluntary retirement
Rule 43 of the revised pension rules 1980 allows a government servant to retire voluntarily after the completion of 20 years qualifying service, but for such retirement the servant is not vested with an absolute right. On the other hand, rule 44 permits a government servant to retire voluntarily on completion of 33 years qualifying service under this rule the permission of the government is not necessary and the right to retire is absolute. Under a similar rule it has been held by the supreme court that there is no question of the request of voluntary retirement by the government when the government servant exercises his right.
