Old Pension Scheme for Central Government Employees who were recruited on or before 22.12.2003
According to Shiva Gopal Mishra, the General Secretary of National Council JCM Staff Side, the Government has made a significant decision as a result of our persistent efforts during several meeting discussions. This achievement marks yet another triumph for NC JCM Staff Side.
The Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules will now apply to Central Government employees who were recruited on or before 22.12.2003, instead of the National Pension System.
This matter was discussed in meetings with the National Council -JCM and the Standing Committee of the National Council – JCM. After several discussions, the government has issued an order in favor of these employees through a Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare letter No. 57/05/2021-P&PW (B) dated 3/3/2023, which is attached for your reference.
Kindly review it carefully and share with other employees to ensure maximum publicity.
Eligible employees must opt-in before 31/08/2023 as this is a one-time relaxation; let’s make every effort to communicate this opportunity to all staff to avoid revisiting this issue in the future.
