Sir,

My friend was working in Govt of Karnataka. After serving for 8 years he joined a central autonomous body in 2008 by giving techincal resignation. His past service will be counted or not in AB where ccs (Pension) Rules 1972 is in force or he is covered under NPS. He is still on probation. Can he claim for counting his past service of 8 years when he is still on probation.

Senior members may please help my friend and guide.
