TL081 - Not working as voltage follower

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TL081Part Number: TL081

Question type: Development and troubleshooting

Description of the problem: I have connected the circuit in following way to make simple voltage follower using TL081.

Pin1- NC
Pin2- FED back to Pin 6 (Follower)
Pin3- input voltage from external (Somethimes 0.6V/ NC/ anything less than 15V)
Pin4- GND
Pin5- NC
Pin6- FED back to pin 2 (Follower)
Pin7- +15V
Pin8- NC

When my input voltage at non-inverting terminal is 0.6V, I am surprised to see output at pin 6 and inverting input at pin 2 as 14V.
I don't understand why it is not working as voltage follower?

Should we require dual supply? but datasheet says, it can operate in single supply.

What went wrong? Please help me anyone on this ASAP.
