Satyajeet Tambe, a social-political activist & Member of Legislative Council, has put forth the demand that Pune-Nashik Semi High-Speed Rail’s route must be as per the original layout without any changes. This was put forth to Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde & Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Along with this, Tambe has put forth another demand of guaranteeing all benefits of the old pension scheme to government employees of Maharashtra.

As per further information from the X handle of Satyajeet Tambe “I had made the following demands to the Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

1. On the lines of Andhra Pradesh Government’s pension scheme, Maharashtra Government should also bring a ‘Swatantra Pension Yojana’ scheme, guaranteeing all the benefits of the old pension scheme to the government employees of the state.

2. The route of Pune-Nashik Semi High-Speed Rail should pass through Sinnar, Sangamner, Narayangaon via Pune as decided in the original layout earlier without any changes.”

Pune-Nashik Semi High-Speed Rail

Regarding the Pune-Nashik Semi High-Speed Rail route, Satyajeet Tambe further says through a tweet “I oppose the fact that railway from Nashik directly to Pune via Sinnar, Sangamner, Narayangaon, Rajgurunagar is being diverted via Shirdi under the name of increased cost of the project. I have requested Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to let the Nashik-Pune Semi High-Speed ​​Railway run through the original route to achieve the purpose of promoting industrialization in the intervening belt by reducing the stress on the cities of Nashik and Pune.”

Old Pension Scheme Benefits

About the Old Pension Scheme benefits, Satyajeet Tambe has stated through a request letter,

“The state government has assured the Legislature as well as the delegation of employees from time to time that the government is positive about the implementation of the old pension scheme for the state government employees. In this regard, I would like to draw your attention to the decision of Andhra Pradesh Government. Government of Andhra Pradesh has implemented Guaranteed Pension Scheme as a hybrid model of Old Pension Scheme and Current Pension Scheme.”

Satyajeet Tambe further states “In this, the Andhra Pradesh government has guaranteed all the benefits of the old pension scheme to the employees. The main thing is that the employees will get 50% of the salary as pension at the time of retirement, so the future of the employees is assured. There is a feeling of insecurity in the ongoing pension scheme of the Maharashtra government as the benefits of the employees are linked to the share market.”

Satyajeet Tambe requests the Maharashtra Government that it should follow the path taken by the Andhra Pradesh government rand implement the separate guaranteed pension scheme of the Maharashtra government to the employees.
