Centre may put voluntary pension schemes for small traders, unorganised workers under EPFO control: Report

The move comes as both schemes have so far failed to generate widespread interest from target groups, years into their launch

October 30, 2020 / 07:20 PM IST

The Centre is likely to announce a voluntary pension scheme for small traders and the unorganised sector under the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) to make both 'more attractive'.

An official told The Economic Times that the labour ministry is considering bringing the Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maandhan (PM-SYM) for unorganised workers and the National Pension Scheme (NPS) for traders and self-employed under EPFO control.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.

The move comes as both schemes have so far failed to generate widespread interest from target groups, years into their launch. The aim is also to simplify implementation and make these schemes effective, the report added.
