Pension as fundamental right

Page no : 2

Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Advocate)     09 April 2018

No doubt pension is merely a legal right and not a findamental right, atleast in govt sector.


psu persons (not including govt banks) getting pension from EPFO and their pension is not subject to confiscation on dismissal.

But the pensiojn of govt employee is not admissible in the event of dismissal.even if it is treated as a part of right to livilihood which is extention of  fundamental right  to life, still it can be adbidged by a "procedure established by law".  CCS(Pension ) Rules and paralell rules of state govt/local bodies and PSU banks all part of "procedure established by law"

A pension is final source of an employee and the pension plan is the best retirement plan that requires an employer to make contributions into a pool of funds set aside for a worker's future benefit. The pool of funds is invested on the employee's behalf, and research paper help the earnings on the investments generate income to the worker upon retirement.

In govt sector pension and gratuity is not at all admissible in case of dismissal.
