Govt has made National Pension System which is also called National Pension Scheme as a mandatory pension scheme in respect of employees who have joined on or after 1st January 2004
DOPT had clarified in OM dated 261h April, 2004 after introduction of NPS to the effect that Casual Labours are not covered by GPF. However, this clarification has been quashed by many legal forums.
