Plea to hike pension benefit for unorganized labour

Plea to hike pension benefit for unorganized labour

AIADMK Perundurai MLA S Jayakumar appealed to the Centre to hike the pension benefits for unorganized labour in the nation under the PM National Pension Scheme. In the May Day celebration of his party's Anna Thozhirsanga Peravai at Perundurai, he said as the benefit is much low under the scheme in which the worker should contribute some amount regularly, many didn't join it.  

As uncertainty is prevailing in the lives of unorganized labour always, the scheme should be made more attractive and beneficial to workers who were nearly 98 percent of total labour force in the nation, he noted. Party functionaies ex MLA C Ponnudurai, Mani, Aruljothi Selvaraj, Jagadeesh,  Petition Mani,  Thingalur Kandasamy and many others attended.
