It is a real discrimination indeed to deny the central govt employees
joined from 2004 onwards Provident Fund and Retirement Gratuity. Even
the employees in the private sector are covered under EPF (Employees
Provident Fund Act 1952) and Payment of Gratuity Act (1972). Hence the
central government employees trade unions need to communicate this
effectively to the central government and get these retirement
benefits urgently. There is no social security scheme for Central
government employees joined after 2004. It is real injustice indeed.
In 2009, the central govt’s department of Pensioner’s welfare
re-established Pension, family pension and Death-cum-Retirement
Gratuity to employees covered under New Pension System (NPS) who
retired on invalidation/disability or those who died in service. But
this does not solve the problems of existing employees especially in
departments like the Railways. It was a bad move indeed for employees
to get covered under NPS without any benefits like GPF/Railway
Provident Fund, Gratuity etc.

To solve the problems, either of the following needs to be implemented:

(1) Scrap the current NPS and deposit the existing amount in PF and
continue the old system of CCS (Pension) rules 1972 and make the
retirement gratuity rules applicable for all railway employees (and
other central government employees) joined after 2004


(2) Re-establish Provident Fund and Retirement Gratuity for all
employees joined after 2004 in Railways and other central govt.
service. If the new pension is to be retained, it should have a
Dearness Allowance (DA) component to meet the rising cost of living after
retirement due to high inflation in India. In addition, the NPS corpus
needs to be utilized 100% (instead of the current 40%) for purchasing
annuity of Life Insurance Companies as Pension. Only then it will have
any sort of relief for the existing employees covered under NPS.
