Retirement age for defence personnel Maximum age limit for Chief of Defence Staff put at 65
Retirement age 65 years
The government has amended rules putting the maximum age limit of 65 years (retirement age 65) for the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) to serve in the post.
The changes were made in the Rules of the Army, 1954, according to a defense ministry notification.
In a landmark decision, Tuesday (31st December 2019) Cabinet Committee on Security approved the formation of the CDS, which will serve as the defense minister’s principal military advisor on all tri-service issues.
The service chiefs can serve for a maximum duration of three years or until they reach the age of 62, depending on the early age.
