India continues to be among the countries with the lowest values when it comes to measuring pension systems, according to the Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index 2018, published by Mercer, a human resources consulting firm, along with Australian Centre for Financial Studies and Monash University.
India finds itself in the lowest category and has slipped from last year's ranking as well.
