RBI WARNS state for restoring Old Pension Scheme; says THIS | Personal Finance News

New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has warned against some states reverting to the old pension plan (OPS), stating that doing so could put pressure on state finances in the future. The likelihood that some states would switch back to the previous pension system is a significant risk that hangs over the subnational fiscal horizon. The annual fiscal resource savings brought about by this action are temporary, according to the RBI’s research, “State Finances: A Study of Budgets of 2022–23.”

The central bank stated in its report on state finances, which was made public on Monday, that governments run the danger of accruing unfunded pension liabilities in the future by deferring current spending.

The Aam Aadmi Party-led Punjab had also released a notification on November 18 in 2022 on the implementation of the OPS for the state government employees who are currently covered by the NPS.
