Punjab issues instructions for payment of GPF
The Punjab government has issued fresh instructions regarding the payment of general provident fund (GPF) to provide much-needed relief to government employees.
A spokesperson here said any employee filing an appeal in the court of law against his dismissal from service and who has not yet attained the superannuation age, will now be eligible to get the non-refundable advance payment from his fund.
He further said in case the employee has attained his superannuation age prior to the decision by a court on his suspension, he will be eligible to get the GPF as per service rules. In such payment cases, an affidavit is a must from the employee that he will claim extension in service after winning the court case, the spokesman added.
