Launching of Minimum Pension Scheme (Rs.1000) across 120 locations in India

Labour Minister Shri Tomar announces launch of Minimum Pension Scheme across 120 locations in India

37 Union Ministers to felicitate pensioners on September 30

The Union Minister of Labour & Employment, Steel and Mines, Shri Narendra Singh Tomar announced the launch of a guaranteed minimum pension of Rs 1000 per month under Employees’ Pension Scheme, 1995. Speaking to journalists at a press conference in here today, he said, the Union Government has decided to organize functions in every office of the Employees Provident Fund Organisation spread across 120 locations in the country. It has also been decided that in 37 locations, Union Ministers will preside over the functions and felicitate the pensioners whose pension is getting increased.

Shri Tomar stated that this is being done to interact with the pensioners and to ensure that no eligible person is left out. He expressed confidence that this interaction will help the EPFO to design its pension re-engineering process in a better way. The Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Smt Gauri Kumar and Central PF Commissioner Shri K.K. Jalan were also present on the occasion.

The Minister said that the long-pending demand for increase in the pension will soon see the light of day. At present, a large number of pensioners are getting only paltry amounts as pension under the scheme. Nearly two-thirds of the pensioners are in receipt of pension of less than 1000 rupees. Thus, this move would benefit approximately 32 lakh out of a total of 49 lakh pensioners who are getting below Rs 1000 as pension, he added.

It is relevant to note that the wage ceiling for coverage under the three schemes of EPFO i.e. Employees Provident Fund Scheme, Employees’ Pension Scheme and Employees’ Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme (EDLI) has also been increased from monthly Rs 6500 to Rs 15000. This increased wage ceiling is expected to bring in an additional 50 lakh employees under the ambit of these social security programmes. The increased wage ceiling will also result into higher benefit under the EDLI from a maximum of Rs.1,30,000 to a maximum of Rs 3,60,000.

In the recent past EPFO has taken a series of measures to bring in greater transparency and efficiency in its functioning. These include the facility for online registration of establishments (OLRE), Online Transfer Claim Portal (OTCP), e-passbook and electronic payment of PF and Pension benefits through NEFT (National Electronic Fund Transfer) and CBS (Core Banking Solution).

Bonus for Railway employees delayed due to hospitalization of Finance Minister

Bonus for Railway employees delayed due to hospitalization of Finance Minister

Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra/GS AIRF has met Minister for Railways today in respect of PLB.

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,
Dear Comrades,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus

Today I met Shri Sadananda Gowda, Hon’ble Minister for Railways at 13:30 hrs. and apprised him about the restlessness prevailing among the Railwaymen on the issue of PLB. He told me that he has already discussed the issue with Hon’ble Finance Minister and written him a D.O. letter on the subject, but it is unfortunate that he has been hospitalized. Even though he will try that PLB issue is resolved by today evening.

In spite of all these efforts, we are getting frantic calls from our affiliated unions, and the situation seems to be very tense throughout the Indian Railways.

As has been advised earlier, our people should be in all preparedness to meet any eventuality in future.
With fraternal greetings!
Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
