Several relaxations brought in GP fund rules

New Delhi, March 20 (UNI) In a major relief for government employees, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has announced that for withdrawing GP Fund a simple declaration by the employee would be sufficient now onwards where in previous days requirement of documentary proof was necessary.
According to the MoS in PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions Dr Jitendra Singh, the liberalization in the GPF provisions was essentially meant to bring in ease of procedures, especially for activities like house building, education of children etc., thus making the rules more employee-friendly.
He said that the existing GP Fund (Central Service) Rules came into force way back in 1960 and even though certain amendments have been made from time to time to address the concerns raised, it was felt to be the need of the hour to bring in some more changes for the convenience of the Government employees.
Similarly, the minimum time limit for sanction and payment of GP Fund withdrawal would not be more than 15 days and in case of an emergency like illness, etc., it could only be 7 days.
Dr Jitender Singh said the limit of withdrawal also has been increased. Now the withdrawal for housing can be up to 90% of the balance at credit and withdrawal for purchase of vehicle could be up to three fourth of the balance at credit.
Dr Singh said, the Government expected its employees to work with full dedication, sincerity and diligence, but at the same time, it was also always seriously considering various means and provisions to provide them with a work-friendly environment and socio-economic stability, so that they may put in their best without any unnecessary distraction.
