Punjab government will implement “old pension scheme” like 2004? There will be no change!!
Under the leadership of the AAP government, the Punjab Cabinet has given in-principle approval for the re-implementation of the old pension scheme for employees. This decision taken by the cabinet is a good step after the Chief Minister’s tweet last month in favor of old pension. It is to be noted that where the Chief Minister has announced to restore the old pension.
There, the statement given by the Finance Minister about the option of new or old pension for the employees also raises serious doubts about the actual implementation of the old pension structure prior to the year 2004.
Expressing the above views, Atinder Pal Singh, the leader of the Old Pension Retrieval Front, said that instead of looking at the results of the Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat Vidhan Sabha elections, the Punjab government should without any further delay implement the notification of the entire benefits of the old pension. release
The state committee of the Front issued a statement after examining the decision of the cabinet and said that any new formula introduced by modifying or distorting the old pension will be considered as non-implementation of the old pension and that will not be accepted by the employees.
Because any scheme less than the complete structure of the old pension will create new confusion and complications and will not be in the interest of the social security of the employees.
Front leaders Sukhwinder Gir, Daljit Safipur, Megh Raj, Raghveer Singh Bhawanigarh, Aman Vashisht, Karamjit Nadampur, Kamal Ghodenab, Dinanath demanded from the Punjab government that the pension system applicable before 2004 under the Civil Service Rules (Pension Act) 1972 (Old Pension) and other admissible overall benefits from time to time without so restoring.
To secure the entire NPS deposit of the employees working under the new pension scheme, to implement the old pension scheme applicable before 2004 instead of giving the NPS employees an option of either the new or the old pension, With the notification issued by the NPS employees, the demand for old pension will be fulfilled. The PPPF Front will struggle till the achievement of the final goal of old pension.
