MINISTER OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
(SMT. SMRITI ZUBIN IRANI)
(a) to (d) The employees of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti had been given the benefit of Contributory Provident Fund (CPF) scheme since its inception. Subsequently, the Government had approved introduction of New Pension Scheme (NPS) for all regular employees of the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) joining on or after 01.04.2009. However, those employees who joined NVS on regular basis before 01.04.2009 were given the option vide NVS’s notification dated 04.08.2009 either to continue with the existing Contributory Provident Fund (CPF) scheme or to join the New Pension Scheme. This option was to be exercised latest by 03.11.2009. Thus, the Government has already provided post retirement benefits of either CPF Scheme or NPS to the employees of NVS including teaching and non-teaching staff.
