Anganwadi Workers Retirement age 60 Yrs vide GO.20 Dt30-05-2015

The I.C.D.S. is one of the most critical intervention by Government for improving nutrition status of women and children and for early childhood growth and development, hence it is necessary that the delivery system of ICDS be effective. In this regard, there is need to fix the upper age limit for continuation of Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) (Main & Mini) and Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs), as the elderly Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) (Main & Mini) and Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs), are not able to perform their job satisfactorily. As per the guidelines of Government of India for “Strengthened and Restructured ICDS Scheme” the State Government have been asked
to fix age limit for Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) (Main & Mini) and Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs), for retirement. The neighboring Southern States like Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Kerala have already fixed upper age limit for Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) and Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs), and these States are far ahead of Andhra Pradesh in achieving Millennium Development goals of reducing MR, MMR and  Malnutrition.

The Commissioner WDCW, A.P. Hyderabad in his proposal in the reference 1st read above has stated that Government of India as part of ICDS restructuring to have requested State Government to fix upper age beyond which AWWs (Main & Mini) /Helpers should not be continued in service. And a proposal was submitted to Government to fix upper age both for AWW/Helper as 60 years by providing end of service benefit of Rs.30,000/- to AWWs and Rs.20,000/- to AWHs as incentive after
attaining the age of 60 years to ensure effective delivery of services in AWCs. She has stated that the AWHs who have crossed 60 years of age are unable to cook food for 30 to 40 children and for the pregnant and lactating women in the AWCs every day. The performance of AWWs who have crossed 60 years of age in conducting preschool activities for 2 to 6 years is also not satisfactory


Due to bifurcation of the state of Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states with effect from 2.06.2014, the Commissioner WDCW, A.P. Hyderabad in his letter dt.05.09.2014 has initiated a fresh proposal for fixing of upper age limit for continuation of AWWs (Main & Mini) /AWHs and Payment of end of service benefit and requested to issue orders in the matter


After careful examination of the issue and basing on the proposals of the Director, Women, Development and Child Welfare Department, A.P., Hyderabad, Government has decided to fix the upper age limit for continuation of Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) (Main & Mini) and Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs) in service as 60 years and to provide end of service benefit of Rs.50,000/- to AWWs (Main & Mini) and Rs.20,000/- to AWHs as incentive for those who have attained the age of 60 years to ensure effective delivery of services in Anganwadi Centres (AWCs).

Accordingly, Government hereby fix the upper age limit for continuation of Anganwadi Workers (AWWs) (Main & Mini) and Anganwadi Helpers (AWHs) in service as 60 years and agree to pay an end of service benefit of Rs.50,000/- to AWWs (Main & Mini) and Rs.20,000/- to AWHs on their attaining the age of 60 years, in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
