2 min read

Bengaluru: Finally new pension scheme (NPS) for teaching and non-teaching staff in medical education department will be a reality.

The scheme which was demanded from a long time will benefit all the permanent teaching and non-teaching staff of government affiliated medical, dental colleges and super specialty hospitals.

Earlier a delegation of members of Medical Education department Welfare Sssociation had met Dr Sudhakar when he took charge as Medical Education Minister and submitted a memorandum for implementation of NPS scheme.

The minister had assured them of taking necessary action in this regard. Now the minister has succeeded in convincing Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to approve the scheme. Finance department has also approved the proposal submitted by the department for implementation of NPS. A government order has been issued in this regard.

Considering the selfless service putforth by doctors and staff of medical colleges amidst the pandemic, Sudhakar had earlier requested the Chief Minister to consider this demand despite the financial crunch being faced by the government due to covid crisis.

Chief minister had agreed to the proposal submitted by Sudhakar and instructed finance department to take action immediately.

A total of 5,949 employees of 27 institutions across the state will be benefitted from this out of which 2,061 employees are AICTE recognized and 3888 are non-AICTE posts. This will create a burden of Rs 77.27 crore on the government exchequer annually. The scheme will be applicable for all permanent employees who have been appointed after April 1, 2006, with immediate effect.

It is worth recalling that a couple of months back the minister had given his nod for the implementation of seventh pay commission for teaching staff of Medical Education department. He had also fulfilled the demand of hike in stipend of PG medical students which was pending since several years. Now NPS implementation will further boost the morale of Corona warriors.

Minister thanks CM

The decision to implement the NPS scheme which was a long pending demand of our doctors and staff who are leading from the front in this fight against Covid, gives me immense satisfaction. On behalf of the department I express sincere gratitude to Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa for positively responding to our request”.
