The Hon’ble Delhi High Court in W.P.(C) 11128/2023, CM APPL. 43199/2023 and CM APPL. 45368/2023, set aside the order passed by the Tribunal increasing the age of retirement or superannuation of the workers of Indian Express from 58 years to 60 years with effect from October 15, 2009, with all consequential benefits and remanded the matter back to the Industrial Tribunal for fresh adjudication. It further observed that the Industrial Tribunal relied merely on the basis that the retirement age in some other newspapers was extendable to 60 years and that the same would benefit the establishment which was a flawed, inadequate and insufficient assessment.
