Tomar announces launch of Minimum Pension scheme across 120 locations in India
Speaking to journalists at a press conference here, he said the Union Government has decided to organize functions in every office of the Employees Provident Fund Organisation spread across 120 locations in the country.
It has also been decided that in 37 locations, Union Ministers will preside over the functions and felicitate the pensioners whose pension is getting increased.
Tomar stated that this is being done to interact with the pensioners and to ensure that no eligible person is left out.
He expressed confidence that this interaction will help the EPFO to design its pension re-engineering process in a better way.
The Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Gauri Kumar and Central PF Commissioner K.K. Jalan were also present on the occasion.
The Minister said that the long-pending demand for increase in the pension will soon see the light of day.
