Demand for old pension scheme

Teachers raise demand with MP Godse
Demand for old pension scheme

DEOLALI CAMP: Nashik Division employees (teaching and non-teaching staff) met MP Hemant Godse and demanded implementation of the old pension scheme for 27,000 teachers and non-teaching staff in the state who were hired before 2005 and came under grant criteria after November 1, 2005.

The 27,000 employees in the state and 1250 employees in Nashik District have been hit hard financially. Therefore, a delegation of employees met MP Hemant Godse yesterday and spoke of the pension subject.

Pandharinath Dhongade stated the government’s ordinance mentions implementing the new pension policy on employees appointed on and after November 1, 2005. However, the ordinance is unfair to employees appointed before November 1, 2005, as it doesn’t include them in the scheme.

He added that almost 2,000 to 2,500 retired employees in the state don’t benefit from the new pension scheme. The employees appointed before implementation of the new pension scheme should be entitled to the old pension scheme.

For the past ten years, the employees have been raising the issue with the government but to no avail. Teachers and staff members have been protesting since December 23, 2021, under the leadership of Sangeeta Shinde. However, the government dispersed the agitators with fake promises.

MP Godse assured justice to the delegation and stated he will take up the matter with the state government. Sandeep Pawar, A.K. Patil, Pandharinath Dhongade, Pramod Adke, Jhurule Sir, and others were present at the occasion.
