Under the Old Pension Scheme, the government employee is paid the entire pension amount after retirement through the government. The amount of pension is not deducted from the salary of the employee during that period as long as the employee is in service. Although the old pension scheme was discontinued through the NDA government in 2004, then the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government started the National Pension System.
