�Nagaland Govt delaying pension benefits�

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, March 20 � Alleging that the State Government is deliberately delaying the process of their pension papers and all other benefits, the Nagaland Senior Government Employees Welfare Association asked the government departments to act according to the rules as they are governed by Service Rules.

Appealing to all the departments to expedite the process of their pension papers to enable them to get their due benefits, chairman of the Association Roko Pier and secretary Thunglamo Ovung in a release today warned that that if they fail to uphold the laid down rules and continue harassing the NSGEWA members, they will be forced to file a PIL against the defaulting departments and claim interest on pension money beyond three months as per relevant Pension Rules.

Stating that the government has not even spared the process of withdrawal of their GPF money which is the hard earned money of each individual employee, the senior employees said delaying payment of GPF money at retirement is against the rules governing provident fund.

Also, alleging that that the DAN Government is trying to politicise the issue, the Association said �The DAN Government�s intention is to see some of the NSWEGA members starve to death due to extreme poverty as they held up pension benefits after a lapse of 16 months of forced retirement.�

The senior employees also alleged that the DAN Government has completely deprived the NSGEWA members of the 6th ROP benefits and added that consequent upon the implementation of Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (2nd Amendment) Act, 2009 and subsequent retirement under the Act upto 31-10-2010, the government has branded these retired employees as �antagonist� and adopted a �punitive policy� to victimise and punish the employees, particularly those who retired as per the retirement Act between 31-10-2009 and 31-03-2010 and punished them like law offenders/criminals.
