Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) action committee chose this to draw attention of the authorities to their demand of introduction of GPF-cum-pension scheme for those who have jointed prior to January 1, 2004.
JNV, Kasargod issued this statement on behalf of the committee and stated that employees of JNV and NVS were inducted initially during the period of inception in 1986 to 1989 on deputation and from 1989 onwards 50% of the employees continued to be on deputation. Strangely those who joined JNV before 2004 are not a part of Govt's GPF - Pension scheme.
The Secretary of the All-India Forum Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya principal and rector of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Canacona said that they are happy with the Government of India's decision of new pension scheme to the employees of NVS , however the Govt should check and modify the pension system for staff who joined before 01.01.2004 , he also quotted the CCS Pension Rules, 1972.
The Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas in Canacona and Valpoi are the two schools functioning under the NVS in Goa.
Mohinish adopted the JNV school and decided to financially support intelligent but economically poor students.
His Non-Profit Organization "Dakshina Foundation" has ties with a coaching institute to train Class XI students. also the chosen students has family income less then Rs 3,000 per month.
Principal feels that it will be great honour if these students crack IIT next year. Also during the training, the teachers of JNV are motivating the students to be self-dependent and giving them necessary guidelines to solve difficult tasks by themselves.
