CPI(M) Objects To Pension Scheme Advt

THE CPI(M) has raised objection to the advertisement issued by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority regarding the new pension scheme, which was published in many newspapers.

In a memorandum to the chief election commissioner, CPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat complained that this advertisement is a clear violation of the model code of conduct issued by the Election Commission and sought appropriate intervention in this matter.
