The Karnataka Cabinet on Friday approved a proposal to raise the retirement age for private sector employees to 60 years from the present 58 years. Schedule - 1 of Karnataka Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) rules 1961 will be amended to give effect to the proposal.

The state Congress has petitioned the Election Commission of India (ECI) against State BJP B S Yeddyurappa accusing him of indulging in "corrupt practice" while campaigning for Gundlupet bypolls.
