Public Corporations (Management co-ordination) (Amendment) Act, 1994

Section-2(e)

Retiring age of a
person who is a time keeper

It
appears that clause 2(e) of the aforementioned Act defines a worker as “any
person, skilled or unskilled, who works for hire or rewards, but does not
include a person who is employed in any managerial, administrative, supervisory
or solely clerical capacity.’ The High Court Division found that the function
of the time keeper is solely clerical in nature and as such the petitioner is
not a worker as per aforementioned definition and therefore, his retirement at
the age of 57 years by the impugned order was not illegal.
