Railway Minister has written a do letter to Finance Minister for abolishing New Pension System

HON’BLE MINISTER FOR RAILWAYS SH. MALIKARJUN KHARGE HAS WRITTEN A DO LETTER TO MINISTER FOR FINANCE FOR ABOLISHING NEW PENSION SYSTEM (NPS) FROM INDIAN RAILWAYS.
MINISTER FOR RAILWAYS GOVERNMENT OF INDIA NEW DELHI No. 2012/F(E)III/1/4-Part 29 MAR 2014 Dear Shri P.

 It is a well known fact that Central Government Pensioners organizations treat certain questions as an indication of the mindset of the7th Pay Commission. As pension is not independent of Salary. Interest of 'Bharat Pensioners Samaj' is natural in salary structure.
If our affiliate, members, partners & sister organizations remember, it was 'Bharat Pensioners Samaj' wh…
