The Supreme Court has set aside the Tripura High Court’s order to increase the retirement age of Anganwadi workers from 62 to 65 years. The decision was made in response to a special leave petition filed by the state government. The court found that the High Court had exceeded its jurisdiction by ordering the increase in retirement age, which was a matter for the government to decide. The judgment stated that the High Court’s decision was “inherently flawed” and that it could not interfere with the state government’s policies. The decision is expected to have significant implications for Anganwadi workers in Tripura.
