A total of 5,949 employees of 27 institutions across the state will be benefitted from this out of which 2,061 employees are All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) recognized and 3,888 are non-AICTE posts. This will create a burden of 77.27 crores to the government exchequer annually. The scheme will be applicable for all permanent employees who have been appointed after April 1, 2006, with immediate effect.
Earlier, a delegation of members of the Medical Education department welfare association met Dr Sudhakar when he took charge as Medical Education Minister and submitted a memorandum for implementation of the NPS scheme.
The minister had assured them to take necessary action in this regard. The finance department has approved a proposal submitted by the Medical Education department for the implementation of NPS. A government order has also been issued in this regard.
Considering the selfless service put forth by doctors and staff of medical colleges amidst the pandemic, Dr Sudhakar had earlier requested the Chief Minister to consider this demand despite the financial crunch faced by the government due to COVID crisis.
The CM had agreed to the proposal submitted by Dr Sudhakar and instructed the finance department to take action immediately.
