Coal pensioners protest in capital, demand review of pension scheme

Agitators seek dearness relief as scheme component to ensure equitable pension; want adherence to provisions of CMPS 1998 on review and revision of pension every three years

Members of the All India Coal Pensioners association (AICPA) staged a one-day protest in the capital on Monday against the non-revision of the pension amount, and demanded a review of the Coal Mines Pension Scheme (CMPS 1998).

CMPS 1998 covers pensioners from Coal India Ltd (CIL), Singareni Collieries (SCC) and a few other coal firms.

The Coal Mines Provident Fund Organization (CMPFO), working under the Ministry of Coal, has been tasked with the implementation of the scheme.
