Karnataka Government Announces Old Pension Scheme Benefits for 13,000 Employees

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah

Old Pension Scheme Benefits : In a recent development, the Karnataka government has issued a notification to include approximately 13,000 employees, who were notified before April 1, 2006, but appointed later, under the Old Pension Scheme. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah shared on ‘Twitter’ platform on Wednesday that he had committed to this measure during a strike staged by government employees against the implementation of the new pension scheme.

“I made a promise to the government employees during their strike against the new pension scheme. Before the elections, I visited the protesting employees and assured them that their demand would be addressed once we come to power. I trust that this decision brings solace to the families of the 13,000 employees covered under the NPS,” he affirmed.
