IS THE NEW PENSION SCHEME GOOD?

If calculated,we can see that the new pension scheme employees are actually
getting 10 % less pay than the old pension scheme staff.There is a wide spread
rumour that the new pension scheme offers amount in Lumpsum amount and
therefore it is better than the old pension scheme.How much truth is there in
it?Let's see...

Please note:The below calculations are based on pay of a Group C cadre of
scale 5200-20300(2500 Grade Pay) and if the government puts the whole
investment in fixed instruments of 8% annual interest.The percentage of
investments in equity which is speculated cannot be calculated.It purely depends
on how efficient the appointed fund manager is.The principal amount of
contribution without interest otherwise is:

Based on 10 years-210000(employee contribution)+210000(Govt
contribution)=Rs420000
Based on 20 years-540000(employee contribution)+540000(Govt
contribution)=Rs1080000

Therefore the amount of pension you get is purely based on the scheme you
chose.As per now,there is no scheme which allows to put 100% in fixed
instruments and the figures are just to compare.

bp+da )

Thus Comparison of old and new pension scheme gives over Rupees 10
lakh less benefits in lump sum amount and Rs 4000 lesser monthly pension
for new employees after twenty years of service for below age 60
retirement.

lakh less benefits in lump sum amount and Rs 9700 lesser monthly pension
for new employees after twenty years of service for age 60 retirement.
And some final questions:

this amount through a annuity and not about giving this huge amount of money
back to the employee at anytime.So what happens to the huge principal
amount(19 lakh in the case of a VRS) when the pension ceases after the
pensioner and his dependent's death?

2.Why doesn't the government give the whole money of contribution as on EPF
for the employee at the time of retirement to invest in bank atleast and enjoy
interest or his choice of investment?Why is the government putting restrictions of
40% and 80% to be only invested in annuity pension scheme without giving any
other choice to employee's hard earned money?

3.Isn't it a violation of Payment of Gratuity Act-1972 when the employer,who is
the Government of India,has decided to give no gratuity to new employees
without passing the new bill?

4.While EPF provides loan upto 36 months of wage,there is no scope for any
loan in CPF,the money is blocked until the employee retires.What should a new
employee do in case of an urgent requirement for building a house or marriage of
children?
