Government May Allow Employees To Raise NPS Fund In Stocks Soon

Government is expected to take a decision soon on a proposal to allow its employees to raise their contribution in stocks as well as choose fund managers under the New Pension System, regulator PFRDA said.

“As you know we have been talking with government to open up the choice of both the fund manager and investment pattern for the government subscribers, these discussions are still going on. The proposals are with the government and hopefully a decision will be taken up by them very shortly,” Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) Chairman Hemant G Contractor said today.

Contractor said that government had expressed concerns that all employees would not be able to understand the investment pattern and may end up making wrong choices.

However, PFRDA recently conducted an online survey involving over 10,000 government employees–both central and state, and found that about 48 per cent of the people were pretty aware of financial things, he said.

Contractor said the findings of the survey were quite interesting as almost 48 per cent government employees were having an average financial literacy rate.

“The level of financial literacy was not as bad we thought as. Only about 24 per cent has low score. We passed it on to the government, so we hoping that with the results of the survey, the government will be able to take decisions faster,” he added.

Currently, pension funds under PFRDA are allowed to invest up to 15 per cent of the government employees’ corpus into stock market. While, for private sector employees it is up to 50 per cent.
Among others, PFRDA will also allow NPS subscribers to choose from commercial mortgage based securities or residential mortgaged based securities, units issued by Real Estate Investment Trusts, asset backed securities, units of Infrastructure Investment Trusts under the alternative investment funds (AIF).

As of September 6, 2016 PFRDA regulated NPS and Atal Pension Yojana (APY) together have 1.34 crore subscribers with total Asset under Management (AUM) of Rs 1.45 lakh crore.

7th Pay Commission – Pay Panel Notification for Armed Forces Signed

7th Pay Commission – Pay Panel Notification for Armed Forces Signed – Sources said the approval for implementing the new pay scales was received from the Ministry of Finance two days ago.

The much awaited notification for implementing recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission for members of the armed forces was signed by the competent authority in the Ministry of Defence on September 6th, thereby paving the way for the uniformed fraternity to get enhanced salaries.

Sources said the approval for implementing the new pay scales was received from the Ministry of Finance two days ago. The notification signed today is only effective for serving personnel and does not include ex-servicemen, sources added.

It is now expected that defence personnel will start getting revised salaries from the next month once the new special army instructions and equivalent orders by the Air Force and the Navy are issued.
The notification does not reflect any changes from the recommendations of the 7th pay pay panel, except for the deletion of a sentence concerned with the parity of the armed forces with the Central armed police forces. A number of anomalies have been projected by the three services and these would be addressed at a separate forum.

The notification for implementing new pay scales according the 7th pay commission recommendations for civilian central government employees was issued in July.
