PRESS STATEMENT

The initial report received at the Confederation CHQ indicates the participation of about 8.5 lakh Central Government employees in today’s general Strike action of the Indian working Class. Earlier endorsing the call of the Central trade Unions, the Confederation of CGE and workers had called upon the Central Government employees to take part in the one day strike to compel the Govt. to withdraw the anti-people and anti-worker neo-liberal policies pursued since 1991.

The report states that the offices of the Postal, Income Tax Ground Water Board, Survey of India Geological Survey of India, , Indian Bureau of Mines. Offices of the Census Departments, ISRO, Atomic Energy, Medical Store Depots, Film Institute of India, Offices of the AGMARK, various other autonomous scientific and research institutions, etc remained closed for the whole day and the work completely paralysed. The strike also paralysed the functioning of various offices of the Indian Audit and Account Department, Printing and Stationary, Census, CPWD, Civil Accounts, Indian Standards Institute etc. Total civilian employees of various Defence Organisations and Defence Accounts Departments participated in the strike. The strike in which lakhs of workers participated has cautioned the Government of the consequences of scrapping the various labour welfare legislations intended to please the Corporate houses.

The Central Government employees were particularly unhappy over the denial of the wage revision for the past 5 years, non grant of interim relief and merger of DA, the continued outsourcing and contractorisation of Governmental functions, denial of the Statutory defined benefit pension to the fresh appointees and above all the closure of the negotiating forum- JCM- since 2010. The Finance Minister’s statement in the Parliament while laying the Medium term Expenditure Framework Statement pegging the additional revenue expenses on account of salary, pension etc for the year 2016-17 at just 5% more than 2015-16 was indicative of the nugatory attitude of the Government towards its own employees’ genuine demand for wage revision. It has no doubt acted as a catalyst to the enthusiastic participation of the employees in the Strike action.

The Strike was total in Kerala, Tamilnadu. Maharashtra, Punjab ,Telengana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Chattisgrah, MP, Orissa, West Bengal Assam, North Eastern States w and 80 to 90% in other States.

The Confederation secretariat congratulates the employees and their leaders, who undertook intensive Campaign to make the strike such a grand success.

The Confederation Secretariat while thanking all its members for their whole hearted participation in the Strike and making it an unprecedented success, places on record the gratitude and appreciation for the yeomen efforts of the various Central Government Pensioners organizations in supporting the strike action.

Central Government Employees Get A Warning: ‘Face Action If You Complain To The Prime Minister’

Central Government Employees Get A Warning: ‘Face Action If You Complain To The Prime Minister’

NEW DELHI—All central government employees, including officials of Army and paramilitary forces, were on Monday warned of “action” if they raise service matters related grievances to the Prime Minister, directly.



Warning employees, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said such submission of representations directly to other authorities by-passing the prescribed channel of communication, has to be viewed seriously and appropriate disciplinary action should be taken against those who violate these.
As per these instructions, wherever a government servant wishes to press a claim or seek redressal of a grievance, the proper course is to address his immediate official superior or head of his office who is competent to deal with the matter in the organisation.

Writing to higher authorities, can rightly be treated as an unbecoming conduct, it said in a directive.
“In spite of these instructions, it has been observed that all government servants continue to represent directly to the prime minister and other higher authorities,” the DoPT said. It is reiterated that the instructions may be brought to their notice and “action taken against those who violate these instructions”, it said.

Items and Issues for SCOVA Agenda
1. Illegal recovery of over payment of Pension
The O M no 45/10/98-P&PW(A}dated 17-12-1998 reads "The President is now pleased to decide that w.e.f 1.1.96, pension of all pensioners irrespective of their date w.e.f 1.1.96. pension of all pensioners irrespective of their date of retirement shall not be less than 50% of the minimum pay in the revised scale of pay introduced w.e.f. 1.1.96 of the post last held by the pensioner." This stipulate that at the time of revision of pension w.e.f. 01-01-1996 , the minimum pension is to be fixed at 50 96 of the Minimum of the revised pay scale corresponding to the pre revised pay-scale introduced to the post from which the employee had retired. in other words, the consolidated revised pension as on 01-01-1996 has to be stepped up to 50 96. of the minimum of revised pay scale corresponding to the pay in the pre-revised pay scale of the post held by the pensioner in case the revised pension falls short of 50% of Minimum Pay in the revised Pay Scale. All affected pensioners were being paid accordingly w.e.f. 01-01-1996.
 
Later in pursuance to O.M. No. 38/37/08-P&PWIA) dated 2801-2013 of Deptt of Pension & Pensioner‘s Welfare, Govt of India. Pension of pre-2006 pensioners were revised upwards subject to the minimum calculated and indicated in column 9 of the table attached to the O M dated 28.01.2013. Unfortunately while implementing orders of O M dated 28.01.2013, Pre-2006 pensioners of Indian Railways suffered a setback as their pension was revised to their disadvantage and recovery ordered/commenced for no fault of the pensioner. Following example is placed to further clarify the issue:
 
The particulars furnished based on PPO issued after respective Pay Commissions.
 
Name: Shri INDRA NARAYAN WADADER.
Date of birth :01-06-1933, Date of retirement : 31-05-1991, Qualifying Service : 33years,
PPO No. Pno/Pen/Engg/14OS
 
(a) At the time of retirement in the Scale of 4th CPC
Pay scale at the time of retirement : Rs. 1400 - 2300, Pension: Rs.791
 
(b) At the time of 5th CPC scale w.e.f 1.1.96
Revised scale to the post as on 1.1.96 : Rs. 5000 - 8000
Consolidated Pension : Rs. 2409
Minimum Pension : Rs. 2500
(50% of the Minimum revised pay introduced to the Post as per Circular)
 
(c) Pension revised at 6th cpc w.e.f 01-01-2006
 
Revised scale in 1.1.1996 : Rs. 5000 - 8000
Consolidated pension : Rs. 5446
Corresponding scale to the post : PB Rs. 9300 -34800 GP Rs. 4200
Minimum Pension : Rs. 6750
[Fitment policy of fixation: Minimum Pay x 1.86 + PB]
Pension stepped up to the Minimum : Rs. 6750 w.e.f 1.1.2006
 
Pension re-revised vide OM dated 28-01-13 w.e.f 01.01.2006 and 24.09.2012
Pension wef 1-1-2006 - Rs. 5446
Pension wef 24-09-2012 - Rs. 5585
 
Recovery of overpayment started @ Rs 5000/ - PM s by PDA
 
From the above it is observed that in re~revising the pension revision of pension has been done by misinterpreting the Concordance Table. it is evident that. Concordance Table so attached to facilitate revision of Minimum Pension, is a post based Concordance Table which was interpreted by the authority as Scale based.
 
This downward revision in VI CPC when no clerical error is involved, is in violation of Rule 90 of Railway Services Pension) Rules. 1993. correspond to the Rule 70(i) of CCS (Pension Rules 1972.(Ref: DOP&PW No. 45/86/97-P&PWIA)-Part-III dt 24 July.1998).The association submits that effecting recovery from pensions after 14 years and that too when the pensioner is not at fault for over payment is not only unjustified but against all cannons of justice judicial pronouncements .Besides, The re-revision of Pension as above needs to be reviewed in its proper perspective and the recovery ordered should be stopped forthwith and amount recovered from the pensioners/ Family Pensioners may be refunded.

2 Non issue of Medical SMART CARD to RELHS Card holders of Railway Pensioners.
This has been brought to our notice that the Railway Medical Authority has not issued Medical Smart Card in most of the Railways. The condition of Railway Medical Service is not in its desired level so far the regular treatment of Pensioners is concerned. Requested to take
necessary steps
3. introduction of simplified procedure for application of grant of life time family pension to unmarried/widow/divorce daughter
Since the introduction of grant of family pension to the unmarried /widow/divorce daughter of the pensioner, no proper guide line has been issued to the different railways in respect of the documents to be submitted and procedure to be followed. neither is there any common format to be filled in by the applicants , and as a result .such pensioners are facing immense troubles. Hence, it is requested to formulate a common format of applications and the procedure to be followed for the convenience of the applicant.
In the greater interest of the poorer section of Widow/Divorced daughter of the pensioner the criteria for grant of life time family pension introduced in the recent past may please be modified so that genuine distressed daughters get the facility.
4. Incorrect implementation of PCAT order dated 01.11.2011 in OA 655/2010, which quashed DOP & PW OMs of 3.10.2008, 14.10.2008 & 11.02.2009
Ref:- OM 38/37/08-P&PW(A) dtd 30.07.2015,38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.01.2013 Reg revision of pension of pre~2006 pensioners & the recommendations of Committee on the issue related to Defence Service personnel and Ex- Servicemen-2012 Revision of pension of pre-2006 pensioners Sir, I wish to point out that OM 38/37/08-P8PW(A) dtd 30.07.2015 is not implementation of Hon’ble PCAT order dated 01.11.2011 in OA 655/2010 in letter 8: spirit. It is in fact extension of OM 38/37/ 08-P&PW(A) dated 28.01.2013 issued prior to final confirmation of PCAT order by the Honorable supreme court which happened on 17.3.2015 on dismissal of Govt. SLPS. On 28.1.2013 the issue was subjudice & the OM dated 28.1.2013 had no linkage with PCAT judgment in OA 655/2010 OM dated 28.01.2013 had a linkage with PCDA(pension) Circular No.500 Dated: 17th January 2013. which was based on recommendations of Committee on the issue related to Defense Service personnel and Ex. Servicemen. PCAT order dated 01.11.2011 in OA 655/2010 quashed DOP & PW OMs Of 3.10.2008 , 14.10 2008 & 11.02.2009. Directing the Govt. to revised pension of all pre 2006 pensioners w.e.f 01.01.2006 as per OM 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 01-09-2008 which does not provide reduction of minimum guaranteed Pension on pro-rata to qualifying service. Thus Para 5 of OM dated 28.01.2013 was in contradiction to PCAT judgment dated 01.11.2011 under reference, its continuation vide even No OM dated 30.7.2015 Para 4 amounts to contempt of Hon'ble PCAT which needs to be set right w/o any delay. Under signed therefore, on-behalf of Bharat Pensioners Samaj, the largest Federation of Indian Pensioners, request you to review OM 38/37/08-P8PW(A) dtd 30.07.2015 to rectify the discrepancy pointed out.
 
5.Inclusion of Pension Federations in Standing Groups of SCOVA
 
The SCOVA functions to promote the following objectives
 
(i) To provide a feed back on implementation of policies/programme of the Department of Pension and Pensioners' Welfare. (ii) To discuss and critically examine the policy initiatives; and (iii) To mobilize Voluntaryefforts to supplement the Government action.
 
Exclusion of major "Federations of Pensioners" like Bharat Pensioners Samaj would reduce the representative character of the SCOVA
 
More over, resolution circulated vide F. No. 42/8/2013-P&PW(G) Government of India Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions (Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare) Date: 18 July,2013 clearly states that the Standing Group would serve for three terms of two years each that means tenure of Standing Group was upto2019. The resolution dated 18.7.2013 does not mention that Terms & conditions of resolution circulated vide 41/22/2008-P&PW(G)29/OS/20092009 Will continue to apply.
 
In the light of the above submissions. SCOVA reconstitution may be reviewed.
