Revision of Income Criterion for Obcs

The increase in the income limit to exclude Creamy Layer is in keeping with the increase in the Consumer Price Index.

Pension to Retired Employees Covered Under PF Scheme 

The Employees’ Pension Scheme, 1995 came into effect from 16th November, 1995 replacing the erstwhile Employees Family Pension Scheme, 1971, which inter-alia provides superannuation/retirement and family pension. 

In order to secure a minimum pension of Rs. 1,000/- per month under Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995 to the member pensioners, the present Government contribution to EPS, 1995 is required to be raised from the existing 1.16% to 1.79% of wages thereby increasing the Government’s present contribution from approximate Rs.990 crore per annum to Rs.1533 crore per annum in the first year. An analysis of the trend in the contribution made by the Central Government suggests that the contribution of the Central Government has been increasing at an average of 10-15% per annum over the last five years.
