Shimla: After 18 years old pension is being restored in Himachal. Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu has adopted a new formula, as soon as he returned from Delhi, the Chief Minister held two-level talks with the officials of the Finance Department on Sunday, but did not give his idea to anyone.
It was also not made clear on which formula he wanted to work? Now on December 28, the Chief Minister has held a meeting with the New Pension Scheme Employees Union. These employees have been informed about this through phone and have been given a tentative time of 12:00 hrs on 28th December.
A total of 12 people have been called by the NPS Union for this meeting, and the NPS Union has been asked by the Chief Minister’s Office to bring a presentation on old pension. On the other hand, the officers of the Finance Department have also been asked to bring a separate presentation.
Initially, in this meeting, the Chief Minister will see the presentation of the Finance Department. Then NPS will compare it with the presentation of the employees union.
Before this, Finance Department was working on the model of 4 states regarding old pension. It includes the formulas of Rajasthan Chhattisgarh Jharkhand and Punjab. In general, the officials felt that the Chief Minister would adopt the Punjab formula, so that there would be time to assess all the impacts before formulating the scheme.
In the instructions given by the Chief Minister before going to Delhi he was more inclined towards the Rajasthan formula. Sukhwinder Sukhu has already said that NPS contribution should be stopped and old pension should be implemented, but now it will be decided only in the meeting on December 28, what new instructions he gives.
