Vishwas Katkar convener of the State Government employees unions who along with their members attended the meeting and said that state has agreed in principal to reconsider the implementation of (OPS).
This issue rocked the Shinde government as the opposition parties corner the state in the both houses of assembly.
In 2005 the Maharashtra government discontinued the Ops and replace it with a new pension scheme under which the pension amount was deducted from employees salary.
In Ops the employees used to get 50% of the basic salary as pension but in the new scheme the amount is not even 25% of the basic salary.
Opposition leader in Council asked the state government to consider their demand with retrospective effect,
Taking back the strike. Katkar also requested all Union members to complete the pending work as early as possible so that people who got affected due to the strike won’t have to suffer anymore.
Around 1.8 million State Government employees were on strike implementation the old pension scheme ops
behave been assured by the state that they are positive about the implementation of Ops they have given such an assurance in writing also the government is ready to take back notice issued to officials on strike. We have also decided to corporate with the state by withdrawing our strike Katkar said.
Sindhe welcomed the decision and said the committee which is studying the issues of OPS has been asked to submit the report and the final decision will be taken as early as possible.
