New scheme implemented in 2004

The Central Government had implemented the New Pension Scheme in the year 2004. Under this, separate accounts were opened for the funds of the New Pension Scheme and fund managers were also appointed for the investment of the fund. If the return of investment of pension fund is good, then new employees can also get good amount in future at the time of retirement as compared to the old scheme of provident fund and pension. But the employees say that the return of investment of pension fund will be better, how is this possible. That’s why they are demanding to implement the old pension scheme.
