Respected Sir,
Sub: Revision of Pension
This issue of acceptance of Option-I (or) II was discussed with your good self at the residence of Hon’ble Home Minister (Government of India), Wherein Hon’ble Minister for Railways and Hon’ble MOSR were present, by the Staff Side National Council (JCM). You had categorically agreed on our demand that, no dilution would be made in the options given to the Pensioners by the VII CPC. It is unfortunate that, a rider, “subject to feasibility”, has been imposed in Option-I.

Sir, this is very unfair and we will appreciate if you kindly get the sentence “subject to feasibility” removed from that para to keep your promise also. It should be left to the Pensioners that whatsoever option they want to choose, they should be allowed to Opt. The argument of non-availability of record is misleading and should not be given any cognizance because PPOs of the Pensioners are the base record and is available with the organizations concerned.

We earnestly seek your urgent intervention in this regard to avoid unnecessary hardship to millions of Pensioners.

With Kind Regards!

Sincerely yours,

(SHIVA GOPAL MISHRA)
Secretary(Staff Side)

All Central Government Employees will remain ready with the time slot to fight for their rights – NJCA

“Government of India to think better than Rs.18,000 as Minimum Wage, change in the Fitment Formula and many other important heartburning aspects, like National Pension System (NPS) and to handover all such issues to the committees with a commitment to consider the same within a timeframe of four months. Considering positive attitude of the senior ministers of the Government of India, the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) had decided to give another four months time to the government.”

Dear Friends!
On the call of the National Joint Council of Action(NJCA), on hopeless recommendations of VII CPC, scrapping of National Pension System (NPS) and other long pending genuine demands of the Central Government Employees, covering lakhs and lakhs of Railwaymen, Defence (Civilian) personnel, Postal employees, working in different Central Government offices throughout the country, unitedly not only participated and contributed regularly in agitational programmes of different stages of struggle but also succeeded to reflect such an environment in the entire length and breadth of the country well before the date of commencement of nationwide “Indefinite Strike” from 11th July, 2016; that compelled the Government of India to think better than Rs.18,000 as Minimum Wage, change in the Fitment Formula and many other important heartburning aspects, like National Pension System (NPS) and to handover all such issues to the committees with a commitment to consider the same within a timeframe of four months. Considering positive attitude of the senior ministers of the Government of India, the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) had decided to give another four months time to the government.

I am fully aware that, our Central Government Employees and the youth with full sincerity and dedication had unitedly created an unprecedented environment throughout the country, enlightening all the fellowmen about our demands in support of “Indefinite Strike” continuously, for which they deserve to be thanked a lot.

Earlier too I had drawn your attention and warned to be aware of such elements who will confuse and mislead you by various baseless arguments and try to weaken and derail our united struggle.

I know that, such negative thinking persons neither would have participated in the strike nor moved shoulder to shoulder in the movement of struggle. Negative thoughts not only weaken the individual, but also malign mental attitude of the others. Certain such persons, pouring in forcefully their polluted views on others, only try to break the broader unity of the movement. After all, it is not a new phenomena, such elements were found in all the strikes of the past. But nowadays; propaganda scenario has changed. Earlier, social media – WhatsApp, Facebook etc. were not available, so, such elements were launching propanganda campaign in the Canteens, Pan shops etc. In the present era, instead of using social media, WhatsApp, Facebook etc, in positive way for uniting co-workers, such elements unsuccessfully attempt to break the unity with their contaminated thought, reflecting the fellowmen that they are the only genius and ever alert and real friends of them, but such individuals always deceived and show their back at the climax of the struggle.

I had earlier mentioned; to be very careful of such vindictive personalities who have destructive thought during the struggle, meant to secure their own rights. It is waste to have even least hope of any contribution in any struggle from such individuals who during agitation/strike try to side-away themselves by all means.

For complete preparation of strong background in any movement, struggle/strike, role of an individual unit, branch, division, zonal and national level, strong change can never be devaluated, and such an strong united movement at all levels leaders ultimately encourages to give a clarion call of struggle at the national level. National leadership has to take care of all even-odd circumstances, lead his attitude, patience and safety of their force. Deep contemplation yields of the movement for him to cause execution to implement various strategies and timelines for the fulfillment of the objective of the obligation to go beyond such a positive approach rather than criticism for decisions on the subtleties of the churning the movement extended to the middle of your peers and get validness struggling peace succeeds

I have full faith that, all the Central Government Employees were ready, already even today and will remain ready with the time slot to fight for their rights.

I again remind my colleagues to be aware and give befitting reply to those having negative thinking, and a strong movement only can go ahead.

I earnestly thank you all.

Comradely yours,
