Latest news from the seventh salary commission: With the great news looming, within the framework of the seventh salary commission, which will benefit employees, the central government decided to extend the "disability compensation" to all its active employees. It would apply if they developed a disability in the line of duty and continued to serve despite their disability.
This is in line with the government's efforts to simplify the rules and correct discriminatory provisions.
Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on January 1 that this change would bring great relief to the personnel of the Young Central Armed Police Force (CAPF), including the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), the Force of Central Industrial Security (CISF), and the Border Security Force (BSF), among others. Other He said task performance deficiencies were generally reported in his condition due to the hostile and challenging work environment and limitations in job requirements.
The minister added that the ultimate goal of the new initiatives is to make life easier for government employees even after they have retired, are retired family members or elderly people.
It should be noted that the new order will eliminate the anomaly in the rules of the service, taking into account the difficulties faced by some employees. The previous ruling on disability benefits under the Central Civil Service Rules (EOP) did not grant compensation to employees who were hired as of January 1, 2004, and was covered by the National Pension System (NPS).
Now, government employees covered by NPS will receive benefits under the Exceptional Pension Rule 9 (EOP), after the new order has been issued by the Pension Administration of the Ministry of Personnel.
"However, with the new order issued by the Ministry of Administration of Personnel Pensions, employees covered by NPS will also receive benefits under Rule 9 of Regular Additional Pensions (EOP)," the ministry said.
