The Minister of State (Finance)

(a) to (e) Representations have been received from time to time which include the request for restoration of Old Pension Scheme. There is no proposal under consideration of Government of India for restoration of old pension scheme in respect of Central Government employees recruited on or after 01.01.2004. The National Pension System (NPS) was introduced by the Government of India to replace the defined benefit pension system by defined contribution pension scheme in order to provide old age income security in a fiscally sustainable manner and to channelize the small savings into productive sectors of the economy through prudential investments.

    • Dear sir, unfortunately Govt. gives heavy pension to Govt. employee s. Their output is nil after retirement .It is astonishing that they expect the people from pvt. sector to live within 1000 ₹. Pension is a token of appreciation.But here it is a heavy source of income for State & Central Governments. The Govts. donot care for people ; they care for votes ! Yes.This is India !

  4. Retired old age people from pvt companies most of them receiving pension less than ₹1000 under eps 95 pension scheme. Request Central govt to consider to increase min of ₹5000 for their living seems to be essential.
