Sixty MPs to lose pensions

If the President dissolves Parliament on March 2, nearly 60 MPs will lose their pension rights as they have not completed their full term in Parliament.

Authoritative sources told that ,to get the pension, a Parliamentarian has to complete a five-year term in Parliament. Therefore, if the President dissolves Parliament on March 2, nearly 60 MPs will lose their pension.

The sources said however, there had been instances where the pension had been given to three or four MPs who had another few months to complete their full term in Parliament based on sympathetic grounds.

They said the Government will not move any motion to restore the pension of these 60 MPs. If these same MPs are not elected next time, they will definitely lose their pension.
