A meeting was held today under the chairmanship of Mohammad Amin Kilo who is state president NPS special cell of DMEF.
The meeting asked the state Government to increase the government Share from 10% to 14% as adopted by the central government.
Kilo said that it less share contributed by the state government is injustice with the young employees who are highly qualified and have been appointed in government departments after going through rigorous selection process.
He also took exception of haphazardly managed NPS system by the finance department.
It is irony that employees who want to withdraw NPS share they have contributed due to certain excengies in their personal life are not able to withdraw same, he said during the meeting.
Many employees who had applied to withdraw after following all procedures and rules were not able to withdraw as finance department officials have clearly told them no mechanism has been put in place by state Government to withdraw the NPS amount from their account.
We appeal State Government to immediately redress this issue at earliest.
State president DMEF, Ovais Wani seeks personal intervention of Governor, Chief Secretary to solve this grievance of employees at earliest so that the employees are not compelled to take streets to fight for their rights.
