In addition, there exists a provision to extend financial assistance to children who are in distress. There is also a provision to give concession to those students whose parents / guardians are not in a position to pay full tuition fee. 

The following additional facilities may be provided to further improve the level of education in the KVs:-

The recent statement of the Minister concerned in the Parliament, that the Govt does not propose to set up the seventh Pay Commission at this stage is most unjustified and frustrating for the Govt employees. 

Fifth Pay Commission had recommended for a Pay Revision after every five years instead of the past practice to set it up after 10 to 13 years. But the Govt did not accept this recommendation. 

The Fifth Pay Commission also recommended for Merger of DA after it crossed 50%. Govt accepted the same and belatedly implemented it from April 2004.

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Sub: Circular on replacing the existing facility of ‘Phased Withdrawal’ with ‘Deferred Withdrawal’

Feedback is being received from various stakeholders that the subscribers be given a specific option to defer or time the entire lump sum withdrawal (max 60%) at the time of exit from National Pension System (NPS) rather than forcing them to choose a certain percentage (%) each and every year while choosing the existing ‘Phased withdrawal’ option, including the year in which they are exiting the system.
