New Delhi, July 15 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday directed the government to bring clarity to the pension rules of government employees, paramilitary forces and the army. The apex court asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi to re-look into the rules that concern service terms related to disbursement of pension. "There is too much confusion regarding pension related rule. The government must assess implications of rules for the army, paramilitary, other services," the apex court observed. The Attorney General, however, appealed for three months time from the apex court to address the issue. "Similar issues pertaining to pension are arising in the army, paramilitary forces and other government services. We will sit with the relevant authorities and see if any immediate action can be taken. It is true that rules are confusing and there is a need for more clarity," Rohatgi said. (ANI)
