Almost the whole lot of government employees appointed on after 01.01.2004 were unhappy with the new pension scheme. While the National Pension System does not form a part of our Terms of Reference, we have recorded the sentiments of the affected employees. The government should take a call and step in to look into their complaints.
We also suggest that an appropriate body may be created to look into anomalies, if any arising out of the implementation of the recommendations of the Seventh CPC. The body so created may be in position for a period of six months at least so that if any anomaly arises in implementation of the recommendation of this Commission, it can be immediately attended to and the affected persons need not wait for another decade
