Resolutions of NCCPA National Executive

NATIONAL EXECUTIVE OF NCCPA RESOLUTIONS



The following are the Resolutions adopted at the National Executive Meeting of NCCPA held at Nagpur on 19.08.2017


RESOLUTION ADOPTED BY THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE OF NCCPA HELD AT NAGPUR ON 19.08.2017 ON SOME BASIC ISSUES OF CG PENSIONERS AFTER THE IMPLEMENTEATION OF 7th CPC RECOMMENDATIONS:

The National Executive of the National Coordination Committee had discussed various aspects of the 7th CPC recommendations and the implementation of them by the Central Government. The attitude of the Government viz., rejecting some of the recommendations made like the Option Number 1 of pension fixation in favour of the pensioners on the grounds of non-feasibility but accepting many recommendations made by the CPC against the interests of the employees without any modifications like rejection of many allowances etc is deplorable. The attitude of the Government is not only retrograde but also time consuming. The tactics to form committees and delay the matters for several months in order to tire out the employees and pensioners is condemnable.

The Central Government has finally rejected Option Number 1 fixation of pension to Pre-2016 Pensioners after much delay. The recommendation of the Pay Commission for giving the benefit of number of increments earned by the Pensioner in his last stage of employment would be more beneficial to a section of Pensioners than the Option Number 3 offered and implemented by the GO dated 12.05.2017. There were scores of Government Employees who stagnated for years without any promotion before their superannuation. This type of stagnation was pronounced to those sections for whom the MACP system was not extended before 2008. The Option Number 1 would have been more beneficial to those Pre-2008 retirees. The Option Number 3 is no doubt an improvement to Option Number 2 of fixation by applying 2.57 fitment factor; but still the better benefit under Option Number 1 to those Pensioners has been out-rightly rejected by the Pension High Level Committee and the Government in the name of non-availability of records of increments for nearly 18% of Pensioners. The stand taken to reject Option Number 1 despite the arguments of the Staff Side and Pensioners Associations to convince the authorities that reconstruction of records is not impossible even for those 18% cases of pensioners is unjust. This National Executive is of the considered opinion that the rejection of Option Number 1 of pension fixation is authoritative and unjustified and based on wrong notions and arguments.

Secondly, the Option Number 3 implemented in lieu of Option Number 1 contains a basic flaw. The Option Number 3 is nothing but the recommendations of 5th CPC for pension fixation by notionally fixing the salary in the fitment table of successive pay commissions to the Pre-2016 Pensioners also and finally fixing 50% of the notionally arrived last pay drawn with reference to the Pay Matrix Table of the 7thCPC. In doing so the important aspect of 5th CPC to fix the salary in the new scale of pay implemented to the post or cadre in which the pensioner had retired or died is ignored by the Government. Instead the pension is calculated only on the basis of the replacement scales. Unless and otherwise the full aspect of 5th CPC recommendation is implemented, the Option Number 3 formula also is denying the full benefit to many pensioners in whose cases their cadre or post got any upgraded pay scale through successive pay commissions. As the Government had agreed to implement OROP to Veteran Pensioners, similar fitment benefit to Civilian Pensioners also by calculating notionally in the same pay scale granted to the serving employees would have rendered justice. This National Executive urges the Government to reconsider this aspect and issue necessary orders to set right the flaw.

In nut shell, this National Executive resolves to reiterate its considered opinion that the Pensioners should be given the choice to opt between the Options 1, Option 2, and Option 3 with the element of higher pay scales granted to the cadre or post.

This National Executive notes with concern that the Government is obstinate in refusing the fixation benefit of pension in the higher scales of pay implemented to the post or cadre despite several court cases went in favour of the Pre-2006 Pensioners. The Pre-2006 Pensioners were denied the benefit of higher scales of pay given to the serving employees from 1.1.2006 and on approaching the court of law many pensioners got the benefit implemented w.e.f. 1.1.2006. The Executive notes that based on this fact the Department of Pension & Pensioners welfare had recommended to Finance Ministry for extending the benefit to all similarly placed Pre-2006 Pensioners. Unfortunately the Department of Expenditure had showed adamancy and refused to grant the benefit even today. It is also unfortunate that when this issue was taken to the PMO for redressal, the PMO had also taken an unjustified position that since the Finance Ministry had taken a position it cannot be reversed. This Executive notes that PMO is the final authority for all issues and the opinion of Department of Expenditure cannot be supreme against the directions of several courts of the land. This National Executive resolves to urge upon the Government to come down from the adamant position and extend the benefit of fixation of pension to all Pre-2006 Pensioners based on the upgraded pay scale if any was implemented to the post or cadre in which the Pre-2006 Pensioner had retired or died.

This National Executive of NCCPA notes with satisfaction that at last the P&T Pensioners also are allowed to enter the CGHS system without any discrimination through the GO dated 19.07.2017. However, we note that since this is a very belated step taken after two decades of discrimination that prevented many P&T Pensioners retired between 1998 and 2017 from joining the CGHS on payment of subscriptions at the prevailing rate at the time of their retirement. The present order ending the discrimination of the P&T Pensioners demands them to pay at the post-7th CPC rate of subscriptions. We all know that the post-7th CPC rates are fixed based on the new higher pay scales after 7th CPC. Fixing the same rate of subscription to all Pre-2016 pensioners irrespective of the year of their retirement is unjustified and exorbitant. This National Executive of NCCPA resolves to urge upon the Government for necessary reconsideration to order to fix the rate of subscription commensurate to their year of retirement.

At the same time this National Executive notes that the Health Ministry’s objection to P&T Pensioners alone was withdrawn to facilitate inclusion of willing P&T Pensioners into CGHS while some other smaller departments are still out of the ambit of CGHS. This discrimination shall go. There shall be no discrimination for any Pensioner of any department in the matter of joining CGHS on the untenable plea that a separate Dispensary System is in existence for that department. In addition the CGHS Directorate General has issued a  recent order on 21st July declaring the CG Employees and CG Pensioners in Union Territories are not entitled to join CGHS and those who were erroneously admitted also have to be sent out. This order is most unjustified and while correcting an injustice the Government is trying to introduce another injustice to the employees and pensioners of Union Territories. This Executive urges for immediate withdrawal of 21st July orders also.

There are many other health related recommendations of the 7th CPC that requires immediate decision by the Government. The recommendations (1) to merge the existing Postal Dispensaries with CGHS; (2) to issue Medi-insurance Cards to employees and pensioners to ensure cashless treatment in authorized private hospitals; (3) to merge various departmental vise health systems to form one broad medical system for the Government Employees and Pensioners; and (4) all pensioners also to be made eligible to medical treatment on par with the serving employees under CS MA Rules 1944, require positive approval by the Government. The Pensioners are the senior citizens whose medical requirements are very important at their old age. The present flaws in the existing medical systems should be removed by accepting the recommendations of the Pay Commission to end any discrimination between the serving employees and the Pensioners.

The National Executive of NCCPA notes that the Government has come forward to double the Fixed Medical Allowance from 500/- to 1000/- per month. This increase is a welcome step no doubt. But one cannot deny the fact that when a section of the Government Employees like the PF Department were granted 2000/- per month as FMA even under 6th CPC time, fixing the FMA after 7th CPC to only 1000/- is not meeting the requirements of today’s medical cost. This National Executive therefore resolves to urge upon the Government to reconsider and enhance the FMA to not less than 2000/- per month.

This National Executive wishes to bring to the notice of the Authorities that several orders are not implemented in a time-bound manner by all departments so that the aging pensioners can get the benefits earlier. The GO on extending full pension to Pre-2006 Pensioners who had retired without putting 33 years of qualifying service has not been implemented to all eligible such Pensioners in many States. The implementation of GO on fixation of pension on the basis of ‘pay in the pay band’ instead of ‘minimum of pay band’ w.e.f. 1.1.2006 for all Pre-2006 Pensioners took a lot of time. The issue of revised PPOs to all Pre-2006 Pensioners is still not completed in many States despite the position reflecting in the SCOVA meeting minutes that almost all Pensioners had been issued with revised PPOs. The main reason for non-implementation or slow implementation is because of the existing staff shortage in accounting offices. This may adversely affect the implementation of the recent 12th May, 2017 orders also. Therefore this National Executive resolves to urge upon the Government to cause to order drawing of the services of qualified retired officials to function as ‘implementation cells’ to speed up the work under the supervision of serving Accounts Officers. This Executive also urges that this Refixation work under Option Number 3 shall be completed to all Pre-2016 Pensioners before 30.09.2017.

The National Executive also notes with concern that several issues like the revamping of additional pension; release of commuted portion of pension after 10 years have neither been considered by the 7th CPC nor by the Government. This Executive resolves to urge upon the Government to come forward to refix the quantum of additional pension in a more rationalistic manner. This Executive also urges the Government to come forward to pass the order in consonance with the order of Bengaluru CAT that the additional pension is payable on attaining the age of 80, 85, 90, 95, 100 instead of on completing the above ages. This Executive also urges the Government that persisting with the present time limit of 15 long years for returning the commuted portion of pension is fully unjustified and it requires to be revisited to reduce the time to 10 years.

The demand for exempting the pension from income tax is not at all receiving the attention of Government despite the fact this demand has been vociferously raised by the Pensioners Organizations for long. It is highly unjustified to tax the pension of the government servants who had toiled for the nation throughout his working life. The Refixation of ceiling for income-tax now and then was only temporary solution to the problem. It is observed that recently that trend also has stopped and we could not find any change of ceiling for income-tax. This National Executive of NCCPA urges the Government to come forward to accept the demand for payment of pension net taxes.

The National Secretariat is hereby authorised by this National Executive to fix up appropriate Programme of action on all the above issues.

RESOLUTION ON BUILDING THE ORGANISATION OF NCCPA

The National executive of NCCPA is of the firm opinion that the growth of the united platform of pensioners’ movement alone is the guarantee to face the onslaught of the Government on pension and social security. NCCPA is the only class conscious apex organization for unifying all CG Pensioners under one roof and effectively project the issues of CG Pensioners for appropriate settlement. The need to strengthen the NCCPA is therefore paramount. 

Both strengthening NCCPA at the CHQ level and strengthening it at State level are important though both are complimenting each other. The strengthening at CHQ level can be concentrated by approaching the existing pensioners’ organizations for affiliating with the NCCPA. The strengthening of the existing affiliates of NCCPA also can contribute to the strengthening of NCCPA CHQ. As far as the States are concerned, it is our responsibility to found State COC of NCCPA with the state organizations of our affiliates (both CGPA and Departmental wise Affiliates). Various state level functioning CGPA organizations also can be approached for joining in the State COC of NCCPA. We are witnessing that for lack of a strong platform of CG Pensioners many issues of Pensioners are unable to be effectively projected before the Government. The solution of pensioners’ issues is left to the mercy of the Government and Authorities through SCOVA and by approaching the doors of courts that takes a longer time. Even after favourable judicial pronouncements the Government is in the habit of denying the benefit to all similarly placed candidates, again against the Supreme Court Judgment. A stronger voice of united pensioners alone can guarantee earlier solutions to many vexed issues.

There are also issues like the NPS, Attack on Pensioners and the danger of bringing all existing employees and pensioners also under the NPS in future with the help of PFRDA Act that gives the Government the power to do so at its will.

This National Executive therefore calls upon all its Affiliates (both CGPA and Departmental wise Associations) to take all the initiative for founding State COC of NCCPA as a measure of strengthening the united movement of CG pensioners on one hand and to work for broader unity of all Pensioners like the Central, State and PSU Pensioners Associations on the other.

RESOLUTION ON NATONAL PENSION SCHEME

This National Executive meeting held of 19.08.2017 at Nagpur notes with utter dismay and expresses its grave concern on the stand taken by the Government of India on the National Pension Scheme introduce from 01.01.2004. A demand was placed before the 7th CPC to scrap that contributory pension scheme and to bring all the CG Employees and others in defined and assured pension scheme. The 7thCPC refrained itself on the plea that the issue is not available in their term of reference. The Government formed a Committee with a view to strengthen the NPS.

This meeting observes with hope that Confederation of CG Employees & Workers and the All India State Government Employees Federation had decided some phased programme of action to fight back the situation.

This National Executive Committee meeting of NCCPA calls upon all its affiliates to take all possible steps to join the programmes on this issue and to generate public opinion by staging dharna, rallies, street corner meetings etc in the coming days.

RESOLUTION ON IMPLEMENATION OF GDS COMMITTEE REPORT

The National Executive Committee meeting of NCCPA held at Nagpur on 19.08.2017 notes with grave concern that the Government of India is following the tactics of delaying the implementation of GDS Committee Report by way of setting up Committees on various pleas. National Federation of Postal Employees is going to stage one day strike on 23.08.2017 demanding implementation of GDS Committee recommendations. This National Executive Committee meeting of NCCPA is whole heartedly supporting the proposed strike and calls upon all the affiliates to stand by the striking employees on the day of strike by staging solidarity type of programme on 23.08.2017.

ON IMPLEMENTING INTERNATIONAL PENSIONERS DAY ON 1stOCTOBER

The WFTU Trade Union International (Pensiones & Retired) has issued a call to observe the 1st October 2017 as the international day of fight for pensioners’ Rights. It is the regular practice of WFTU to observe October 1st every year on some important social causes and the selection of this year October 1st as the International Day of fight for Pensioners’ rights by the WFTU TUI (P&R) clearly marks the danger to which the pensioners of all the countries are exposed under liberalization. This National Executive meeting of NCCPA resolves to call upon all our affiliates to observe the 1st October 2017 as International day of fight for Pensioners’ Rights.

RESOLUTION ON SOLIDARITY WITH THE CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS


The National Executive Meeting of NCCPA held at Nagpur on 19.08.2017 welcomes the decision taken by the Central Trade Unions and Federations and Confederations and Associations of Central Government, State Government and Public sector like the BSNL, Banks, Insurance etc to organise a series of Programmes against the economic policies and the onslaught on the working Class. This National executive expresses its total solidarity with the Programme of Action of Indefinite strike to be launched by the Indian Working Class unitedly. This Executive also calls upon all our affiliates to mobilize maximum membership to Delhi to participate on 10th November in the three days dharna programme to be organised in Delhi from 9th to 11th of November, 2017 as a prelude to the impending indefinite strike. All our affiliates will concentrate full mobilization on the second day of the three days dharna in order to focus the total solidarity of pensioners as a community to the struggle of the working class.

Grievance Description:AIPRPA / Pre-2006 / 1 / 7/ 2017 Dated 17th July, 2017 To The Prime Minister Government of India New Delhi – 110001 Respected Sir, Sub: Request for reconsideration of the unjustified stand taken by the Department of Expenditure on the matter of extending the benefit of Court Judgment to all similarly placed Pre-2006 Pensioners – regarding. This All India Postal RMS Pensioners Association would desire to point out an irrational stand taken by the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure despite recommendation to extend the benefit of Court Judgment to all similarly placed Pre-2006 Pensioners by the Department of Pension Pensioners Welfare. We place the following for your benign consideration and appropriate orders. There are many Court Judgments to fix the Pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners on the basis of the pay scale granted to their cadre by the 6th CPC or implemented by the Government to the serving employees of the same cadre. The judgments have been accepted and implemented in several cases by the Government only to the petitioners / litigants. As per the official minutes of the SCOVA meeting conducted by the Honourable Minister of State for Personnel, the Department of Pension Pensioners Welfare had written to the Department of Expenditure in favour of extending the benefit to all similarly placed Pre-2006 Pensioners in the background of Government implementing the Court Judgment in several cases of litigants. Unfortunately, the minutes informs that the recommendation of the Department of Pension had been rejected by the Department of Expenditure, which is unethical according to Supreme Court Judgment that directs the Government that such judgments should be invariably extended to all similarly placed candidates. This Association would further like to point out that because of the above adamant stand of the Department of Expenditure, the 12th July orders of DoPPW for Pension Refixation cases of Pre-2016 Pensioners also contain the same clause to refix the pension only on the basis of the replacement scales and not on the basis of the scale of pay implemented to the serving employees. To render justice it is paramount to grant all Pre-2006 and Pre-2016 Pensioners the benefit of Court Judgment for fixation of Pension in the pay scales implemented to the post or cadre instead of only on the replacement scales. This Association requests your kind intervention for appropriate reconsideration of the issue without formally approaching the issue only on financial consideration instead of ethical consideration. Thanking you, Yours faithfully, K.Ragavendran General Secretary

Any P&T Pensioner can join CGHS hereafter!

A VICTORY TO THE CONTINUOUS EFFORTS OF AIPRPA

ALL Postal Pensioners Can join CGHS without Discrimination

Government Orders Relead Yesterday on 19.07.2017

The AIPRPA has been striving hard to end the decades old discrimination against P&T Pensioners on the issue of permitting non-CGHS Pensioners into CGHS. The issue had been taken to 7th CPC in a common memorandum as well as raised in the discussions with the CPC.
The Pay Commission had given out favourable recommendations and according to Director CGHS the issue was receiving serious consideration in the concerned Departments of Government.
Now, citing the Kerala Court judgment, the Central Government through an order of Health Ministry dated 19.07.2017 taken back the objections of the Central Health Ministry Circulars prohibiting the P&T PEnsioners from joining CGHS if they were not members of CGHS while in service.

With the present orders the problem of entering CGHS is sorted out to all Pensioners of Postal Department. Without any conditions, any desiring Pensioner can join CGHS by paying respective CGHS contributions.

This is a milestone achievement for us.

CHQ to DoP


AIPRPA CHQ E-Mails to Secretary (P) on formation of Implementation Cells to quickly refix pension to Pre-2016 Pensioners


AIPRPA / Pre-2016 / 1/7/2017 Dated 17.07.2017

To
The Secretary
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan
New Delhi – 110001

Sir,
Sub: Request for issue of instructions to form ‘implementation Cells’ for immediate and time-bound implementation of 12th May (12.05.2017) Orders of Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare in the Postal Department – regarding.

Ref: (1) OM No.F.No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) Dated 12.05.2017 of Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare
(2) Order No.4-3/2017-Pension Dated 23.05.2017 of Department of Posts (Pension Section)
(3) Order of MOF Department of Expenditure No. CPAO/lT&Tech/Revision (7th CPCJ/19.Vol-lll /20t6-17 / 37 Dated:25/05/2017
(3) OM No.F.No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) Dated 6.7.2017 of Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare.

This Association of All India Postal & RMS Pensioners is constrained to draw your  kind attention that certain urgent measures will be absolutely essential to implement without much delay the OM of DoP&PW dated 12.05.2017.

This Association is thankful to the instructions of the Department of Posts to all Heads of Circle, DAP etc authorities vide its Order dated 23.05.2017 as follows:

” Since there will be large number of cases for revision, concerted efforts of all authorities will be required to accomplish the task. It is requested to take immediate action for revision of pension/family pension at the earliest

However there are serious concerns amongst the Pensioners and Family Pensioners about the conditions prevailing as well as by the past experiences on similar issues that the task will never be completed for months together. There are several octogenarian and even nonagenarian Pensioners for whom the benefit shall be extended at the earliest. Our apprehensions are further strengthened by the fact that  though the DoP orders directs the Pension Sanctioning Authorities to get the Proforma prepared and forward it to get the approval by the Director of Accounts (Postal) for revised PPOs, the Head Post Offices are directed to prepare the Proforma. However, the universally prevailing fact is that there is acute shortage of staff in every Head Post Offices due to vacant posts; leave by staff etc and particularly in the Accounts Branches due to the practice of diverting the Accounts Branch Staff to urgent operative office work like the counter duties to manage the general staff shortage. Under this circumstance it is physically impossible to HPOs to attend to the work of preparing such Proforma quickly.

This Association suggests that an ‘Implementation Cell’ may be ordered to be created in each HPO Accounts Branch for the specific task of preparing the Proforma with the available records at their disposal and to draw the records available with the Pension Sanctioning Authority on war footing. If need be the services of retired APMs, Accountants, AAOs, AOs can also be ordered to be utilized on terms of ‘Short Duty Staff’ with the responsibility to sign the documents be of course given to the serving APM (Accounts). Without any such concrete step ordered the work may not be completed by the HPOs in the near future.

Next, the HPOs are only Pension Drawing and Disbursing Authority (1) for the Pensioners retired as Group B, Group A and higher officers in whose case the Pension Sanctioning Authority is RO/CO/Directorate/Circle Accounts Office; (2) RMS, MMS and other Non-Postal Units in whose cases the SRM/SSRM/MMS Units/PSDs/CSDs/Civil or Electrical Division etc happen to be the Pension Sanctioning Authority; (3) Pensioners and Family Pensioners of other Postal Divisions in whose cases the Pension Sanctioning Authority is elsewhere; and (4) for Pensioners drawing Pension through PSU Banks the HPOs have no role at all. For such Pensioners the HPOs have no role in the preparation of the above Proforma. In such cases naturally the delay can be avoided only if the appropriate Pension Sanctioning Authority is able to prepare the Proforma without delay and forward them to Circle Accounts Office for approval and issue of Revised PPOs.

In addition, this Association would like to draw your kind attention to another fact also viz., while issuing the revised PPOs for Pre-2006 pensioners after 6th CPC, the entire data should have been computerized and the soft copy should be available with the GM PAF. The PPOs in respect of post-2006 pensioners have also been computerized. Hence the entire data and date of retirement for most of the Pre-2016 Pensioners should be available with the GM PAF. Even according to official position Revised PPOs to all Pre-2006 Pensioners of Postal Department have been already issued. Therefore not only there need not be any delay in making the checks of the Proforma sent by the Pension Sanctioning Authority and approve the refixed pension and issue Revised PPOs; but also they can supply any information required by the Pension Drawing and Disbursing Authorities regarding any Pensioner / Family Pensioner.  However, as in the HPOs, there is also acute staff shortage in DAP offices. The DAP office has to check and issue revised PPOs for the entirety of Pensioners / Family Pensioners in the Circle / Circle, which may run into several thousands. Therefore an ‘Implementation Cell’ with the Staff and if necessary with the retired Senior Accountants, AAOs, AOs with the supervision authority resting with a serving Accounts Officer as exclusively the head of the 'Implementation Cell' in DAP who can be the overall Supervisor of the Cell and authorize the Revised PPOs may be very much necessary.

The work of calculation of revised pension as per 12.05.2017 orders is made quite easy by the issue of ready reckoner with the latest orders of DoP&PW dated 6.7.2017. Taking advantage of the ready reckoner the Refixation of pension to all Pre-2016 Pensioners shall be done without delay and at any cost we request that not later than 31st August, 2017.

We emphasize that the Pension Refixation of Pre-2006 Pensioners including the grant of full pension to less than 33 years served employees are yet to be completed in many cases contrary to the report available in SCOVA records that there are no pending cases in Department of Posts. Therefore the present task of fixation of pension and issue of fresh and revised PPOs to all Pre-2016 Pensioners should not follow the earlier example of inordinate delay. We therefore once again urge upon you to consider ordering ‘Implementation Cells’ in both HPOs and DAP Offices as well as in the Offices of Pension Sanctioning Authorities (O/o SSPOs SSRMs etc) if need be immediately to accomplish the task of Refixation of pension to thousands of Pensioners in each Circle. It may be kept in mind that any inordinate delay caused may lead to huge resentment amongst the Pensioners and Family Pensioners, despite the good intention of the Directorate to fulfill the task urgently.

We are hopeful that our suggestions borne out of past experience would receive appropriate consideration at the Postal Directorate.


Yours faithfully,


(K.Ragavendran)

Comrade D.Gnaniah legendary leader passes away!

Nonagenarian leader of P&T Employees D.Gnaniah Red Salutes!
Comrade D.Gnaniah seated in the centre flanked by Comrdade AGP Patron Tamilnadu AIPRPA and KR GS AIPRPA at the 2nd State Conference of AIPRPA Tamilnadu State at Coimbatore.
The senior most leader of P&T Employees movement as on date amongst us Comrade D.Gnaniah has passed away this day morning at about 4.30 A.M. He was one of our legendary leaders of P&T Movement and CG Employees movement. He was 96 years old and 97 running as on date. He was the only surviving leaders of NFPTE formation time of 1954 and with breathing his last, the void is complete. He was the Secretary General of NFPTE during the historic time of 1968 CG Employees Strike; He was the leader who signed as the Staff Side Secretary of P&T Departmental Council in the famous Productivity Linked Bonus to P&T Employees on the face of a strike threat given out by NFPTE. He was a leader well proficiency and ease with HIndi language in addition to English and Tamil and used to make forceful Hindi speeches in North India and National Conventions. A Revolutionary throughout his life and he had visited several Socialist Countries in his life time. A famous writer who had written several books on 'Socialist' ideals. A militant leader who had led several strikes of P&T employees. A leader remembered by all the past and present leaders of P&T trade union movement and CG Employees movement. He joined as a member of AIPRPA (All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association) when the team of AIPRPA leaders led by its General Secretaru visited on him in his house at Coimbatore two years back.He graced the 2nd State Conference of AIPRPA held at Coimbatore despite his advanced age and physical condition. His presence and inspiring speech at the above conference at his age of 95 enthused one and all present in the Conference. He was admitted in hospital and remained in treatment for four or five days before he succumbed to nature today morning at 4.30 A.M. His departure is an irreparable loss to the P&T movement and CG Employees movement and Pensioners Movement and in one sentence to the entire working class movement of India. The funeral of the legendary leader is likely to be around the afternoon of tomorrow (9.7.2017) at Coimbatore after the arrival of his daughter from USA. The further details of funeral can be ascertained from our Coimbatore AIPRPA leaders Comrades D.Sivaraj and S.Karunanidhi (9486616236 & 9443914456).

AIC of AIPRPA

2nd AIC of AIPRPA


Notice for 2nd AIC of AIPRPA had already been circulated. The Conference will be on 17-18 September, 2017. The venue at Vijayawada (Andhra) is the "M.Basavapunniah Vignana Kendram" in which there is a big air conditioned  conference hall at ground floor. A big Reception Committee under the chairmanship of Capital City M.L.A., Sri.Alla and Y.Nagabhushanam as its General Secretary is already started its work. However, the first and basic task is to mobilize sufficient finances for the successful conduct of the AIC. As a pensioners organization, unless all members join this task, it is impossible to raise funds. The Reception Committee through the CHQ is sending Donation Books (50/- denomination) to all State General Secretaries. It is their responsibility to distribute among their districts / divisions to ensure all of our members contribute. In addition Advertisement Tariff is also being sent for the Souvenir. Districts and Divisions should ensure at least a minimum of  2 advertisements without fail. The Conference will go a long way in establishing our organization of Postal & RMS Pensioners. The CHQ requests all our States and District / Divisions to play their due role in collectively raising a strong finance to AIC. Also make reservations without further delay to Vijayawada. It should be our great assembly! Get Ready!! - KR GS AIPRPA

Cabinet decisions on CG Employees and Pensioners after a long wait! 





Cabinet has taken decision only on Allowances and no word on minimum wages and fitment factor enhancement contrary to some News Channels which were telecasting wrong news of raise in basic pay and figment factor.

Highlights of Cabinet approval on Allowances:

1) Fully DA-indexed allowances such as Transport Allowance were not given any raise. Allowances not indexed to DA were raised by a factor of 2.25 and the partially indexed ones by a factor of 1.5. The quantum of allowances paid as a percentage of pay was rationalised by a factor of 0.8.

2) Government has decided not to abolish 12 of the 53 allowances which were recommended to be abolished by the 7th CPC. The decision to retain these allowances has been taken keeping in view the specific functional requirements of Railways, Posts and Scientific Departments such as Space and Atomic Energy. It has also been decided that 3 of the 37 allowances recommended to be subsumed by the 7th CPC will continue as separate identities. This has been done on account of the unique nature of these allowances. The rates of these allowances have also been enhanced as per the formula adopted by the 7th CPC. This means 41 Allowances are abolished as recommended by 7th CPC.

3) 7th CPC had  recommended that HRA rates will be revised upwards in two phases to 27%, 18% and 9% when DA crosses 50% and to 30%, 20% and 10% when DA crosses 100%. Keeping in view the current inflation trends, the Government has decided that these rates will be revised upwards when DA crosses 25% and 50% respectively.This means the existing higher rate of HRA will not continue.

4) FMA doubled from 500/- to 1000/- per month to Pensioners. So the FMA is enhanced to 1000/- instead of 2000/- already being granted to PF Department since 2006 and demanded by us.

5) Rate of Children Education Allowance (CEA) has been increased from ₹1500 per month / child (max. 2) to ₹2250 per month / child (max.2). Hostel Subsidy will also go up from ₹4500 per month to ₹6750 per month.

6) Existing rates of Special Allowance for Child Care for Women with Disabilities has been doubled from ₹1500 per month to ₹3000 per month.

7) Higher Qualification Incentive for Civilians has been increased from ₹2000 - ₹10000 (Grant) to ₹10000 - ₹30000 (Grant

8) Cycle Allowance to Postman retained and doubled from 90/- to 180/-;

9) Rate of constant attendance allowance increased from 4500/- to 6750/-; this means this allowance is not doubled but only 50% increased.

10) The 7th CPC had recommended that TLA will not be admissible with Special Duty Allowance (SDA) payable in North-East, Ladakh and the Islands. Government has decided that employees will be given the option to avail of the benefit of SCRLA at pre-revised rates along with SDA at revised rates.

PRESIDENT:       COM.SHIV GOPAL MISHRA.(97176 47594)
SECRETARY GENERAL:COM.K.K.N.KUTTY. (98110 483030

Dear Comrades,

            We are sending herewith the notice for the National Executive meeting.  We had already intimated you over sms that the meeting would be held at Nagpur on 19th August, 2017.  We have also placed a copy of the Notice on our website.  The exact venue of the meeting and other details would be communicated to you by the Reception Committee or Com.D.V. Dhakthod, our vice President. 

            We have been informed that arrangements for stay would be made by the host unit from 18th evening to 20th forenoon.  Those who are likely to reach earlier and perhaps leave later will have to make their own arrangements.  Nagpur is expected to have a humid and hot climatic condition at that time..  Rains are also expected.  Besides, the National Secretariat members, the Chief Executives of all affiliated Associations are members of the National Executive and they are all requested to be present at the meeting.  If for some unavoidable reason, the General Secretary of the affiliated Association is not able to go over to Nagpur, he is entitled to deploy any other office bearers to attend the NE meeting, with due information to the CHQ.  If any of the Sectt. member or the other NE members prefers to make their own arrangements for stay, they are free to do so.  However, if such arrangements are made, the same may please be communicated to the reception committee.  In fact we would very much welcome such arrangements if somebody is able to do so.

            Please inform in advance your journey details to the reception committee.  They are to deploy comrades to take you to the boarding place and make you comfortable.  We also advise that it would be better that the comrades reach on 18th night itself so that the  reception committee will have less pressure on 19th morning.  Those who are to leave on 19th itself, we would request them to kindly  book their tickets only by the train or flight after 8.30 PM. 

            The meeting is expected to commence on 19th at 10.30AM and we want it to be concluded latest by 7.30PM.  Since we have a heavy agenda for discussion,  we request you to kindly co-operate with us to keep the time schedule. 

            Our Finance Secretary has informed us that there had been no remittance of subscription except a few in the last financial year. i.e. 2015-16  Whatever is due to be paid depending upon the membership, we request that the same may please be remitted immediately.  We give hereunder the bank details so that the amount could be remitted by you without any hassle.     

                                    Name of the Bank:     Syndicate Bank.
Branch Name:            India Park Branch, RZ 44331. Street No. 24, Sadh Nagar, Palam Colony, New Delhi. 110 0045.
MICR Code:                110025329
IFSC No.                     SYNB 0009188
Account  No.               91882010026870
Account is the joint name of the Finance Secretary and Secretary General i.e. Harbajan Lal Sidhu and K.K.N. Kutty.

            To ensure that the financial position of the NCCPA is strengthened, and  enable it to function properly, we may if all of you permit, propose to double the existing rate of subscription to. Rs. 2 per member per annum for the FY 2016-17 onwards.

            By the end of this months, the final decisions of the Government on various issues pertaining to 7th CPC recommendations and  referred to different committees  would become available.  In so far as pension matters are concerned, the only matter of interest that has remained pending is the fixed medical allowance.  As the things go, we do not expect any positive decision on the part of the Government in the matter, unless the top bureaucrats have any benefit thereon.  It is expected to be a long drawn out struggle for the Pensioner community.  In this connection, we are to inform you that the Staff Side of the JCM National Council has fixed 23rd June, 2017 as the last date for the submission of National anomaly committee items to their office.  As you are aware the National Anomaly Committee has already been set up and its first meeting has also been held. All pension related items would be within the ambit of the National Anomaly Committee.  Kindly go through the expanded definition of anomaly.  Please prepare items that are to be taken up and send the same to the NCCPA in its e mail only.  Please see our e mail address on the top of this letter-head.  Please send the items neatly typed in double space and send the same through e mail only as a word file.  Please do not send the same as either a Pdf file or in the  image form.  Since the items can be sponsored only once,  kindly cause discussions on this issue in a wider forum and prepare the items and send it to us immediately.  The Staff Side is expected to meet by the end of this month to finalise the items, they had received upto 23rd June, 2017. 

            We shall have a comprehensive discussions on the items, which would be included int he list of the NAC agenda in our NE meeting to formulate our  oral arguments when these issues are taken up for discussion.  No doubt the refusal of Option No. 1. And the denial of pensionary benefits to the employees of the autonomous bodies must figure in our discussions on 18th and no less importance we mush assign to the organisational issues. 

            Lastly the NE meeting must discuss and decide upon future programme of action especially to pursue the issue concerning the Option No. 1. and the untenable rejection thereof by the Pension Department.  Once we chalk out the programme, we may be able to get in touch with other pensioners Associations for eliciting their co-operation and participation.  So far our attempt to forge a united platform has not fructified.

            With greetings,
Yours fraternally,
Sd/-

Secretary General.
