  • HP govt has restored the Old Pension Scheme (OPS) for Himachal Pradesh government employees with immediate effect.
  • As was promised by the Congress in its election manifesto, the government approved the long standing demand of the employees in its first Cabinet meeting here on Friday.
  • The decision will benefit around 1.36 lakh employees of the state who are under New Pension Scheme. With the restoration of the scheme, Himachal has become the third Congress-ruled state to restore the Old Pension Scheme.
  • The Congress government further gave in-principle approval to its two other major poll promises – a monthly allowance of Rs 1,500 to women aged 18-60 and generating one lakh job opportunities in a year – and formed Cabinet sub-committees to work out the modalities for their implementation. These committees will submit their reports to the Cabinet in one month.
