New pension scheme could pose serious trouble for BJP in Himachal

Shimla, 28/10: Sixty-three-year-old K L Saini, a retired professor from Mandi, is a troubled man. With more than 13 years of work as an associate professor at the Government Degree College at Rewalsar, Saini says he had to borrow when Covid struck.

My bank balance was low, and community members sent groceries over. This has been a humiliating experience for me,” he says.


Saini was drawing Rs 1.5 lakh per month when he retired in 2019. Today, he gets a pension of Rs 5,170 per month. He says it is tough for him to make ends meet with three children to look after.
