Chandigarh: Pension Scheme For Scribes

On Sunday, Capt Amrinder Singh, Punjab Congress president promised to offer Family Health insurance and dignified pension for the journalists in the event of Congress forming the Government in the State.

He has declared that when Congress forms the Government in 2017, it will provide health and life insurance plan to them and their families.

This would offer cover for illness and death for all the journalists, along with their dependent family members, working with a range of news organizations, including newspapers, magazines, news channels and news portals, Capt Amarinder added.

According to him, after the age of sixty, all the journalists who have put in 20 years of service while working as journalists will be free to receive family pension that will be substantial and reasonable to sustain their lives.

Capt Amarinder said that the scheme of registration and accreditation will also be simplified.

“Whosoever starts working as a professional journalist or photojournalist should get the accreditation automatically without any screening or any other cumbersome process”, he said.

He said, he will make sure that from 2017 onwards, each journalist after the age of 60 has a regular income so that he or she does not have to be dependent  on others or compromise on his/her self respect.
