The Regulation Wing of Finance Ministry has amended the notification issued on July 1, 2016 and has informed ministries and divisions that pensioners whose age was 85 years or more on July 1, 2016 will receive a raise in their pensions from 10% to 25%.
Pensions are provided in consideration of past services rendered by a government servant and must suffice the needs of these former employees in old age. These include provision of health and other facilities and this raise aims to assist them in this regard.
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
