All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association is born
The founding of the All India
Postal & RMS Pensioners Association is an historical event in the history
of Indian Postal Pensioners. This Organisation will provide the ammunition for
the justified battle for defending the Pension rights and other Social
Securities of all Pensioners.
This Organisation is not a rival
to any other existing Pensioners Associations or Federations. The intention of
founding this organisation is not to create any division in the other
Pensioners Associations. This Organisation is found to fill up the gap
existing. Yes, there are thousands and thousands of Postal Pensioners in the
country not attracted by any Organisation. This inherent weakness cannot be
allowed to continue for ever.
We declare that we have no
barriers as in the past when we were working under various trade unions of
different Federations. We declare that we have no barrier as in the past when
we were working either as an employee or as an officer. Now we are all one
class. We are Postal Pensioners. We are part of the large family of Government
Pensioners as well as the Pensioners of various sectors in India.
We want to bring all Postal
Pensioners under a strong organisation called the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners
Association [AIPRPA] and work as an affiliate of National Coordination
Committee of Pensioners Associations [NCCPA].
We want all the Pensioners
Organisations of Central Government Employees shall come under a single
platform of unified action - NCCPA.
We work in the direction of all
Pensioners belonging to Central Government, State Government, Teachers, PSUs
like BSNL, Banks, Insurance as well any other sections like Government
Transports, Electricity Boards come under a united platform of defence
against the actions of Governments in nullifying the entire Social Security and
Pension by privatising the Pension and opening it to share market risks
inviting inevitable crisis. This unity of all Pensioners Organisations and the
entirety of the Indian Working Class is inevitable if we really want to defend
our Pension rights.
We have declared our intentions.
We seek the support of all Federations and Associations of serving employees of
Postal Department. We seek the support of all Pensioners of Postal, RMS, MMS,
Administrative, Postal Accounts, SBCO or Postal Civil Wing of the Postal
Let all the Pensioners of Postal
Department raise our voice.
Let all Pensioners of Postal
Department join an organisation.
Committee of All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association.
Formation of All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association
The Department of Posts is one of the largest Central Government Departments next to Railways and Defence and the strength of Pensioners of Postal Department is also one of the biggest in the country. NFPE in its 9th Federal Council had resolved to extend full support and solidarity to the efforts of mobilizing the entirety of Pensioners of Postal Department, especially in the specific background of very serious attacks on Pension and Social Security of all Pensioners and Government Employees under LPG policies of Central Government. We also note with concern that despite the existence and functioning of different Pensioners’ Organizations in the country, more than 80% of Postal Pensioners remain unorganized.
This weakness has to be eliminated in order to combat the attacks on Pension and Social Security. Mobilization of all Pensioners of Postal and RMS disregarding their union affiliations in the past is the need of the hour.
In this background, the National Federation of Postal Employees extends all support to the endeavor of mobilizing the entirety of Pensioners of the Department of Posts in the country by our retired Comrades, who have served in various capacities in the Postal Unions in the past.
The name of the new Organization will be All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association.
A Steering Committee formed by the senior retired comrades and headed by the under-mentioned comrades with the former Secretary General of NFPE Comrade K.Ragavendran as the General Convenor should be rendered all assistance and help by the entirety of NFPE Organizations at all levels in order to build a strong organization for the Postal Pensioners.

FINANCE MINISTER ANNOUNCES GOVERNMENT DECISION TO CONSTITUTE SEVENTH CENTRAL
Today the Honourable Finance Minister Shri.P.Chidambaram has announced that the Central Government has decided to constitute the 7th CPC for CG Employees.
He also said the date of effect will be from 1.1.2016 and that the terms of references will be finalised after discussions with the Staff Side.
We welcome the Government decision to constitute 7th Pay Commission. We also welcome the decision that the terms of references will be finalised after consultations with the Staff Side.
We on behalf of the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association express that the Government also should come forward to include the items of Pensioners in the terms of reference and that there should be an opportunity for the Pensioners Organizations to express their opinions on this before finalisation of the terms of references.
We the All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association also feels disappointed that while the Government has come forward to accept the demand of the CG Employees Organisations has kept silent on the vital issue of merger of 50% DA with the Basic Pay for the serving the Government Employees and with the Basic Pension for the Pensioners. This demand is very important in the background of the escalating prices of all essential commodities and the real value of pension and pay have got reduced very much.
We request the Government to come forward to take a positive decision on the issue of merger of DA / DR as the case may be and also request all organisations of CG Employees and the Pensioners to raise their voice strongly demanding the merger of DA immediately.
meeting held on 20th September 2013.
The reconstituted SCOVA met on 20.09.2013 under the
chairmanship of Honourbale V.Narayanasamy MOS. In the background of the
judgments in various Courts especially in the background of rejection of SLP
filed by the Government of India in the Supreme Court, expectations were rife
amongst the pre-2006 HSG-I pensioners that their pension will be upgraded to
4600 GP corresponding to the elevated scale of 7450. However, the trend
shows that the Official Side had stated that Whether the grade pay of Rs.4600/-
is to be treated as the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay-scale of
Rs.6500-10500/- or it is to be treated as upgraded grade pay. (ii) In case,
Grade Pay of Rs.4600 is to be treated as grade pay corresponding to the
pre-revised pay scale of Rs.6500-10500/-, the pre- 2006 pensioners who retired
before 2006 would be entitled to the benefit. Everyone know that the
Grade Pay corresponding to the pay scale 6500-10500 is only 4200/- and not
4600/-. The Government is sticking on its earlier position that as like after V
CPC, pre-2006 pensioners will be entitled only to equivalent pay scale to the
pre-revised scale and not to the upgraded pay scale if any. The benefit of
upgraded pay scale will be extended only to post-2006 cases. This appears to be
the stand of the Government. We cannot accept this interpretation. The battle
must go on.
