Government okays pension for all in paramilitary forces

The Centre has accepted the long-standing demand of paramilitary forces to restore pension benefits to all jawans who have joined the ranks since 2004. With this decision, at least 20,000 personnel serving in CRPF, BSF, CISF, ITBP and SSB would benefit. "I am pleased to announce that the government has accepted our demand of restoring the old pension scheme. Now, everyone in the forces will get the pension," Director General of Border Security Force M L Kumawat said at a function here. Government polices a few years back did not find those eligible who had joined the paramilitary forces after 2004 for pensionary benefits. However, the three services of the Armed Forces were getting the benefits resulting in resentment in paramilitary forces. The Sixth Pay Commission, however, endorsed such a pension scheme for the new recruits. Directors General of CPOs also wrote to the government saying such a step would discourage the youth from joining the forces and lead to demoralizat…

Supreme Court seeks response from Kerala government on creamy layer

The Supreme Court on Thursday sought response from the Kerala Government on its decision to raise the income ceiling for the 'creamy layer' among OBCs from Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 4.5 lakh.

A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan issued notice to the state government on a petition filed by Kerala-based Nair Service Society challenging the notification in this regard. The Society said without determining the criteria, the state government raised the income ceiling giving reference of a similar decision taken by the Centre which has been challenged in the apex court.

It said it would have been appropriate for the Kerala Government to appoint an independent Commission for dwelling on the issue of the creamy layer.

The bench tagged the petition with another petition which in October last year had challenged the Centre's decision to raise the income ceiling for the creamy layer. Some of the anti-quota petitioners had alleged that the Union Cabinet's decision to raise t…
