Let them enjoy pension, since they presumably did lot of social service.


The question is the minimum qualifying service for eligibility for pension.


In Central Govt, 10 years qualifying service is required. However, MPs are entitled for pension as under:


Pensionary Benefits


Every person who has served as a member of the Provisional Parliament or either House of Parliament for any period is entitled to a pension of rupees three thousand per mensem. Provided further that where any person has served for a period exceeding five years, he shall be paid an additional pension of rupees six hundred per mensem for every year in excess of five years. For the purpose of calculation of years for determination of additional pension, the period of nine months or more shall be treated as one complete year.


(read the figure as 20,000 and 1,500 respectively at present)



Pension is a benefit accruing out of public service. When MPs are entitled for pension as above, why the Government Servants, who also rendered public service is dealt with a different set of Pension Rule. They made the rule for themselves. Parity is required in qualifying service for Public Servants who are selected based on open competition/selection, merit and thereafter rendered valuable service to the nation.
