President J&K College Teachers Association and the senior leader of Employees Joint Action Committee Prof Tariq Ashai has impressed upon the state government to extend benefits of retirement gratuity and death gratuity to the employees, who come under new pension scheme. 

In a statement Prof Ashai said, "The State Government has remained silent about this issue, despite the fact the Central Government has already decided vide that such employees shall be eligible for benefits of retirement gratuity and death gratuity on the same terms and conditions as applicable to other employees covered by Central Civil Service Pension rule, 1972. "

He said the J&K government has implemented the National Pension System Scheme in 2010 but has remained silent about the gratuity benefits over the years, which has raised concerns in the minds of thousands of such employees.

He urged the state government particularly the finance minister Haseeb Drabu to look into this matter and issue instructions on the analogy of central government, so that such employees can heave a sigh of relief.
