Mechanical engineers who work on aircraft engines and cars can expect to work up to 25 years on top of their regular salaries.
The National Engineering Standards Board (NESB) has said that as per its regulations, an engineer who is hired on a temporary basis will work for six months on top or on a fixed basis and may receive up to two years of salary.
The same applies to engineers who are hired on an annual basis, NESB said.
An engineer is someone who is trained to work on machines and systems.
They can work as part of a team, work on projects involving multiple machines and also on a contract basis, the NESB has said.
The NESB added that an engineer may also receive a pension if they are working for a government agency or a company that has a contractual relationship with a government.
The new rules come into effect from October 31, 2018.
They will apply to the engineering profession in all states.
