The Central Government has extended GPF-cum-Pension scheme (for officers/staff) to six Inter University Centres (IUCs) who have joined prior to 1.1.2004 and had opted for the same.
The six IUCs are

(iii) Nuclear Science Centre(NSC);
(iv) Consortium for Educational Communication (CEC);

The Central Government has approved introduction of New Pension Scheme to all regular employees joining Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) and also given option to other regular employees of NVS either to join the New Pension Scheme or to continue with the existing scheme. This scheme has been introduced with effect from 1.4.2009. However, employees who joined the NVS before the date have not accepted the scheme and have represented for coverage under CCP (Pension) Rules, 1978, but this could not be acceded to.
