Subject: One day Agitational Programme on 24.04.2018 on Minimum Guaranteed Pension under National Pension System (NPS).

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Sadar Namaskar
It is hoped that all of you are well and busy in accelerating trade union activities. As all of you know that the Central Executive Committee Meeting of this federation was held on 26, 27 and 28 March 2018 in Dehu Road, Pune where it was decided to hold one day agitational programme on 24.04.2018 on Minimum Guaranteed Pension under National Pension System (NPS).

A resolution to this effect was also passed in the CEC Meeting held at Hyderabad during September 2015 and subsequently several correspondence were made. However, in spite of lapse of such a large time, no tangible action has been seen from the Govt side on the issue.

Therefore, in absence of any concrete step from the Govt side on the issue it becomes necessary to register our displeasure over the lethargic attitude of the Government and register our protest to constrain the machinery to redress the Grievance.

Hence, you are requested to hold one day agitation programme on 24.04.2018 using all feasible and effective trade union instruments like Gate Meeting, Use of Black Badges, Slogan Shouting, publicizing of programme at humongous level through posters/ hoardings/ banners/ pamphlets/ social media so that the issue may be resolved at the earliest. Further, you are requested to submit a memorandum addressed to Prime Minister of India through proper channel on 24.04.2018.

With regards,

Brotherly yours

Grant of One Time Relaxation for Compassionate Appointments – BPMS

Govt. of India, DoP&T O.M. No. 14014 / 6 / 94- Estt (D) dated 09th Oct 1998 read with O.M. No. 14014/23/ 99- Estt (D) Dated 03rd Dec 1999 has a provision to give a compassionate appointment to one of the dependent for the survival of his family, if the employee unfortunately dies during his service period; leaving his family behind to survive, but it is limited to 5% of the vacancies falling under direct recruitment quota in any Group ‘C’or ‘D’ post. Not only this, under this 5% quota DR of Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ defence civilians, the dependants of Group ‘A’ & ‘B’ defence civilians and all uniformed personnel (of Army, AirForce & Navy) are being granted compassionate appointment but the 5% vacancies under DR of Group ‘A’ & ‘B’ defence civilians and uniformed personnel are not added. Due to this, a large number of wards are waiting for their appointment on compassionate grounds to look after the family.

This federation has made lot of efforts on the subject and it may be noteworthy to mention the following correspondence (1) BPMS Letter No. BPMS / MOD / Comp. Apptt. /219 (8/3/L) . dated 04.04.2016 (2). Hon’ble RM’s DO No. 4930/VIP/RM/2016, dated 02.06.2016 (3). MOD ID No. 19(1)/2016-D(Lab), Dated 05.07.2016 (4). OFB letter No. 039(6)/PER/POLICY, Dated 14.07.2016.

Further, this issue has been discussed on several occasion with the present Raksha Mantri also but no action is seen as yet.

On the other hand, the families of dependents are suffering and are becoming desperate on account of inaction on such an important and sensitive issue.

The Central Executive Committee Meeting being held at Dehu Road (Pune) took serious cognizance of the issue and demands that the Government should take immediate necessary steps to solve the issue.

Resolution passed on 28/03/2018.

Grant of Minimum Guaranteed Pension under NPS – BPMS

Grant of Minimum Guaranteed Pension under NPS

The Central Government had introduced the National Pension System (NPS) with effect from 1 January, 2004 (except for armed forces). During the budget session of 2003-2004 the Government announced introduction of the “New Defined Contribution Pension Scheme” then known as the New Pension Scheme. It was formally notified vide Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs letter dated 22-12-2003. Later, it was adopted by various State Governments and Central and State Public Sector Corporations.

Upto 28.02.2018, the total figure of subscribers of NPS working in Central Government Establishments/ Offices including Public Sector Undertaking has reached to 19,12,871 with a corpus of Rs 61,145.65 crore and in State Governments Establishments/ Offices including respective Public Sector Undertaking, it has reached to 38,21,266 with corpus of Rs. 86,897.31 crore.

The above mentioned Scheme was made operative since 01.01.2004 without any concrete instructions and with passage of time, Govt has been trying to develop a system regarding its functioning. But the future as well as retiremental security (Social Security) of the employees is at stake without guarantee of Minimum Pension under the Scheme.

This Federation has been consistently demanding that Government should frame a policy to ensure that irrespective of the financial/market conditions at the time of Retirement of the subscriber under NPS, he should get a guaranteed minimum pension equivalent to 50% of his last drawn Basic Pay plus Dearness Relief for neutralization of price rise.

A resolution to this effect was also passed in the CEC Meeting held at Hyderabad during September 2015 and subsequently several correspondence have also occurred. However, in spite of lapse of such a large time, no tangible action is seen from the Government side on the issue.

After having deliberated the issue in details, the Central Executive while recording its displeasure over the absence of action on the part of the Government on such an important issue, hereby calls upon the Government to immediately notify the subject issue.

This resolution is being passed in the Central Executive Committee held at Dehu Road (Pune) on 28/03/2018.

As per information received from 77 Ministries/Departments including their attached/subordinate offices, the representation of SCs, STs and OBCs in the posts and services under the Central Government as on 01.01.2016 is 17.49%, 8.47% and 21.57% respectively.

As per available information, representation of OBCs as on 01.01.2012 was 16.55% which has now increased to 21.57% as on 01.01.2016. Therefore, there is an increasing trend in the representation of OBCs in the posts and services of Central Government.

Department of Personnel & Training has issued instructions to all Ministries/Departments to constitute an in-house Committee to identify backlog reserved vacancies, study of the root cause of backlog reserved vacancies, initiation of measures to remove such factors and to fill up such vacancies through Special Recruitment Drive.
