Govt told to fur­nish de­tails on con­trib­u­tory pen­sion scheme

The New Indian Express - - TAMIL NADU -

JUS­TICE N Kirubakaran of the Madras High Court has di­rected the State gov­ern­ment to fur­nish cer­tain in­for­ma­tion with re­gard to the con­trib­u­tory pen­sion scheme (CPS) in­tro­duced by it re­cently.

They in­clude whether the sum towards the CPS is con­trib­uted by the gov­ern­ment equally, as is be­ing de­ducted from the salary of its em­ploy­ees. If the con­tri­bu­tion has not been de­posited by the gov­ern­ment, what is the time limit re­quired to de­posit the same? Is it true that many gov­ern­ment ser­vants, who had re­tired from ser­vice, have not been paid the CPS amount? If so, when the same would be paid to them and the rea­son for the fail­ure, the court asked.

The judge, how­ever, made it clear that in any event, ir­re­spec­tive of the le­git­i­macy of their claim, he did not ap­prove the strike by teach­ers as it went against the in­ter­ests of poor chil­dren. The au­thor­i­ties should file their re­sponse by Septem­ber 18, the judge said.

Ear­lier, the judge was told that the old pen­sion scheme was not be­ing fol­lowed by the gov­ern­ment for staff who joined ser­vice af­ter 2003 and CPS was in­tro­duced.
