Centre to launch post retirement counselling

The government will help officials on the verge of retirement learn tricks of life after leaving the job.

The Ministry of Personnel, Pensions and Public Grievances has asked departments to conduct pre-retiring counselling and workshops to prepare officials for a life after retirement. The workshops will primarily focus on helping such employees gain knowledge about availing pensionary dues, CGHS benefits, financial investments and the will.

At a recent meeting of the Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA), dealing with pension issues, Minister of State V Narayanasamy said a slew of initiatives have been taken.

According to minutes of the February 5 meeting, an online pension sanction and payment tracking system called “Bhavishya” is in operation in 15 organisations and departments. “This would benefit individual pensioners as well as administrative authorities,” he said.

Another initiative was “Sankalp”, launched to channelise skill and experience of pensioners into socially useful and constructive work. This will be taken up on a pilot basis initially for 500 pensioners, he said.

“This will give pensioners continuous satisfaction and fulfillment as they will continue to contribute to the society and nation building,” he said.
