CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
1st Floor, North Avenue PO Building, New Delhi – 110001
WITHDRAW CONTRIBUTORY PENSION SCHEME
SCRAP PFRDA BILL

PFRDA BILL LISTED IN THE AGENDA OF THE CURRENT SESSION OF THE PARLIAMENT

CONFEDERATION CALLS UPON THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TO ORGANIZE TWO HOURS WALK-OUT PROGRAMME ON THE DAY WHEN THE BILL IS TAKEN UP FOR DISCUSSION IN PARLIAMENT

As you are aware, Central Government is going ahead with their agenda on pension privatization. The controversial PFRDA Bill (Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority Bill) is listed as an agenda item for the current Parliament session. The bill may be taken up for discussion in Parliament on any day. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has opposed the Contributory Pension Scheme and also the PFRDA Bill from the very beginning.

We have conducted so many agitational programmes including strike. The left parties in the parliament have also strongly opposed the Bill. Inspite of the opposition from employees (both Central Government and State Government Employees & Teachers) and also from left political parties, the Central Government is not ready to withdraw the contributory Pension scheme or to scrap the PFRDA Bill.

The National Secretariat of the Confederation has viewed the move of the Government with grave concern and decided to call upon the entirety of the Central Government Employees & Workers to organize mass protest demonstration in front of all offices throughout the country after walking out from offices for two hours, on the day when the bill is taken up for discussion in Parliament or on the next day if information is received late.

All India office bearers, State level COCs and other COCs are requested to make the two hours walk out programme a grand success.

Framing of Rules for URC Employees

The Unit Run Canteen employees are getting paid as per the rules regulating the terms and conditions of the services of the civilian employees of the URCs, issued by Army Headquarters in April 2003. These rules were made as per the directions of Hon'ble Supreme Court.

It has been held by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in its order dated 28-4-2009, in the case of R.R. Pillai Vs the commanding officer HQ SAC(U), that employees of the URC are not government servant.

Unit Run Canteens (URCs) employees are not Government employees, hence recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission are not applicable to them.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri Shadi Lal Batra in Rajya Sabha today.

Specialists trained in Armed Forces Medical Services undertake-to serve for a period of 10 years after post graduation. Opportunities are provided to specialist officers to train further in super specialities / allied specialties which act as an incentive for them to continue to serve with the organization. For retaining trained doctors, opportunities for doing Post Graduation are also provided to them. Option of raising the amount of the bond required to be executed at the time of taking admission for MBBS course as also for doing other courses is also available with the Government for this purpose.

As such, no final recommendation has been given by the GoM.
