We will fulfill the 10 promises made in the first meeting of the state cabinet. All the promises made by the party before the elections will be fulfilled, the state has enough funds to do those works. Congress party is committed to fulfill 10 guarantees. Will leave no stone unturned to live up to the hopes and aspirations of the people of the state. The Congress government is determined to fulfill its promises
Old pension scheme is closed for 8 years
The special thing is that Himachal Pradesh will be the third Congress ruled state after Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh where OPS will be implemented. Financial management will be a big challenge for the state government after its implementation, as the state government already has a debt of about 70 thousand crores. There are 2.5 lakh government employees in the state, of whom around 1.5 lakh are covered under the new pension scheme. From April 1, 2004, the old pension scheme was discontinued in the country, in which the government pays the entire amount of pension.
