Employees finally got their second arrears

The government on Tuesday ordered release of the second instalment of arrears due to employees and pensioners on account of the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations.

The decision will benefit 3.3 million employees and 4 million pensioners on the civilian side besides uniformed defence service personnel.

Government servants employed after January 2004 -- when the new contributory pension scheme came into force -- would, however, have to submit the form for registering under the new scheme to get their arrears. Employees are also advised put this money into GPF.
