CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS

MEMORANDUM

Memorandum submitted to —————————- on the grievances of Central Government employees and Pensioners.

No………………………… Date…………

Respected Sir/Madam,

We, on behalf of 32 lakhs Central Government employees and 33 lakhs Pensioners, seek your benign intervention to settle the following genuine grievances pending redressal for the last many years. We have brought these issues to the notice of the Central Government several times and also discussed in the negotiating forum which meets rarely. Inspite of our best efforts the issues could not be settled due to the unhelpful attitude of the Government. Having left with no other alternatives, we have been compelled to declare one day nationwide strike of Central Government employees on 15th November 2018. It is in this background, we are approaching your goodself for your kind intervention, so that the matter will be brought to the notice of the Hon’ble Prime Minister for early settlement.

1. Scrap Contributory Pension Scheme (Known as New Pension Scheme – NPS) and restore Defined Benefit Pension Scheme under CCS (Pension) Rules 1972 to all Central Government Employees, joined in service on or after 01-01-2004.

2. Honour assurance given by Group of Ministers to the Leaders of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) of Central Government employees regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula for Pay revision from 01-01­2016.

3. Regularisation and grant of Civil Servant status to Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal Department. Implement all positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee report without any modifications or dilution

4. Pension Parity recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission (Option-I)

5. Filling up of all vacant posts. There are about six lakhs vacant posts remaining unfilled in various Central Government departments.

6. Stop closure of Government establishments

7. Implement 7th CPC wage revision and pension revision of all Autonomous body employees and pensioners.

8. Remove 5% condition imposed on compassionate appointments

9. Stop attack on trade union rights and ensure prompt functioning of various negotiating forums under the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) scheme at National and Departmental level.

10. Grant of five promotions during the entire service career of each employee .

At present almost all employees in the Group B and Group-C cadres retire from service with maximum three promotions only. Our request to ensure minimum five promotions in one’s career is not considered favourably by Government.

The above are some of the main issues agitating the minds of lakhs of central Govt. Employees and pensioners for long. Once again request your kind intervention.

With profound regards,
Yours faithfully,

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees strike deferred

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees strike deferred

New Delhi: The National Joint Council Action (NJCA), a confederation of 3.3 million central government employees has deferred the nation-wide indefinite strike from July 11 , as the central government has formed a committee of Ministers to negotiate with union leaders on their demands including hike in minimum pay from Rs 18,000, which was recommended by the 7th Pay Commission and was approved by the cabinet on June 29.
“Since the Prime Minister has intervened and initiated the process of negotiation, the top leaders of NJCA have decided to differ from the indefinite strike which was planned from July 11 and further talks will be carried out,” said N Kanniah, NJCA convener (South Zone).

It may be noted that the NJCA had earlier announced plans to go on nation-wide indefinite strike from July 11, followed by cabinet approval of 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The Cabinet ditto with the 7h Pay Commission recommendations, the commission recommended 23.55 per cent hike in salaries, allowances and pensions and a 14.27 per cent increase in basic pay for Central government employees, the lowest in 70 years.

The cabinet has increased the minimum pay from existing Rs 7000 to Rs 18,000 while NJCA is demanding minimum pay Rs. 26,000.

“They have fixed the minimum wage at a meagre Rs. 18,000 in the 7th Pay Commission. In the 6th Pay Commission, the basic pay was Rs. 7,000. They took fitment factor 2.57. We are demanding 3.68 fitment fitment factor,” said Shiv Gopal Mishra, General Secretary of the National Joint Council of Action.

The government has come under intense pressure on indefinite strike of central government employees and dedided to hike the minimum pay of central government employees beyond Rs 18,000.

Accordingly, Three top ministers of Union government- Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Railways Minister called NJCA leaders at Rajnath Singh’s house on June 30 and assured that the minimum pay issue is going to be referred to one of two committees that the government is setting up to rectify any anomalies in the pay commission recommendation implementation with a better and reasonable offer of pay increase and expedite the settlement at the earliest.

The decision regarding going on strike will be taken at the meeting of NJCA today but speculations were rife that the NJCA will defer the July 11 indefinite strike after government heeded to their demand of increasing minimum pay to over Rs 25,000 from Rs 18,000 fixed after considering the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.

The indefinite strike of NJCA will be tentatively postponed from July 11. If the negotiations with the government are fruitful, there will be no strike from July 11, top leaders of NJCA said before today’s meeting. However, a final decision will be taken only after consultations with all six central government employees unions, they added.

The six major Unions of the central government employees formed NJCA, including Confederation of Central Government Employees (CCGE), All India Defence Employee Federation and National Coordination Committee of Pensioners Association, which had called for the indefinite strike from July 11, protesting 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Brother,

 

Sub: 7th CPC Recommendations – reg.

 

Cabinet’s decision on minimum wage is totally disappointing as no improvement has been made. Equally in multiplier factor, there is no improvement.

 

As already decided, the JCM constituent organizations will be compelled to go on strike.

 

NJCA will meet very soon (either today or tomorrow) to take stock of the situation and issue directions.

Yours fraternally,

Unhappy with 7th Pay Commission hike, government employees to go on strike on July 11

Unhappy with 7th Pay Commission hike, government employees to go on strike on July 11

Government Employees Strike

The 7th Pay Commission report that received a nod from the Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will levy a pay hike of 23.55%.

Nearly 32 lakh central government employees have announced they will be going on a strike starting July 11, protesting against the 23.55% salary hike approved by the Cabinet on Wednesday, Zee Business channel news frash indicated.

Earlier in the day the Cabinet approved the recommendations put forth by the 7th Pay Commission panel, which will impact the salaries of one crore government employees.

Under the final approval, the basic salary of government employees will be hiked by 15% and the overall 7th Pay Commission pay hike stands at 23.55%. The central government employees, unhappy with the rate of pay hike had warned earlier that they will stage a strike on July 11, demanding a pay rise of atleast 30%.

At current levels, the salary hike is the lowest in 70 years, but a senior government official stated tight fiscal situation as the reason, stating that a provision to increase it to 18-20% was still open.

On July 4, M Krishnan, Secretary General of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers issued a notice to the employees who are member and affiliated organisations regarding the pursuance of an indefinite strike from July 11 2016.

Krishnan had earlier said that if the government adopts delayed tactics or issue unilateral orders rejecting our demands, then confrontation shall become inevitable.

The Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers on June 27, also put up a notice calling for an indefinite strike from July 11 and demonstrations and rallies in front of all important government offices and centres from July 4 to July 10.

35 LAKHS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TO COMMENCE INDEFINITE STRIKE FROM 11TH JULY 2016.

40 LAKHS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT PENSIONERS ALSO WILL JOIN THE PROTEST ACTION THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

LARGEST PARTICIPATED STRIKE ACTION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TO BEGIN AT 6 AM ON 11TH JULY 2016.

PRESS STATEMENT OF CONFEDERATION

PRESS STATEMENT

Dated: 9th June, 2016

As per the decision taken by the NJCA (National Joint Council of Action of Central Government Employees Organisations), Confederation of Central Government employees and workers and all its constituent Associations/Federations in the Postal, Income Tax, Audit, Accounts, Ground Water Board, Printing and Stationery, Survey Departments, Atomic Energy, Central Secretariat, Central Excise and Customs etc. served the strike notice on their respective head of Departments today the 9th June, 2016. At Delhi massive demonstrations were held at Dak Bhawan, Central Revenue Building (ITO) and many other places. The NJCA includes all Associations and Federations of Departments of the Government of India, including Defence and Railways, Postal, Income Tax, Audit, Accounts etc. About 35 lakh Central Government employees are expected to take part in the indefinite strike action which as per the notice will begin from 11th July, 2016. The indefinite strike has become necessary due to the non settlement of the charter of demands submitted to the Government by the NJCA in December, 2015. (Enclosed is the charter of demands and the NJCA letter addressed to the Cabinet Secretary on10.12.2015).

The 7th Central Pay Commission submitted its report on 19th November, 2015, after a delay of three months from the stipulated period of 18 months given to them. The three months delay was also caused by the intervention of the Present Finance Minister. It is now more than six months the report is with the Government. The entire 35 lakh workers and the Civil Servant pension community was extremely unhappy over the recommendations of the 7th CPC which did not address the core issues presented before them and the wage revisions suggested by the Commission was the lowest in the post independent history of the country. A meagre rise of 14% alone was recommended by the Commission to be effective for a long period of ten years. The Government has so far failed to take note of the anger and anguish of the employees in the matter as the wage rise recommended in the face of the unprecedented rise in the inflation during the period between 2oo6 and 2016. The Government did not either grant any interim relief or even a small financial benefit in the form of merger of DA which at the setting up of every earlier Pay Commission the Government had adhered to.

The strike which commences on 11th July, 2016 shall be the largest participated strike action in the independent India as more than 35 lakhs civil servants are expected to join the strike action.

The entire pension community belonging to Civil Pensioners have decided to join the struggle for the Government has indicated that it will not be able to implement the recommendation of the 7th CPC concerning pensioners on the flimsy ground that relevant document required for the revision might not be available with them.

All Constituent Organisations,
National Council (JCM)

Dear Comrades,

Sub: Meeting with the Cabinet Secretary

On 5th May, 2016 I met the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, and once again draw his attention towards my letter NO.NC/JCM/2016 dated: May 2, 2016, a copy of the said letter was also handed over to him.

During discussion I also mentioned about the anguish of the Central Government employees because of inordinate delay in implementation of VII CPC recommendations and also their anxiety about enhancement in Minimum Wage as well as Multiplying Factor etc.

I also demanded a meeting with the Staff Side, NC/JCM on all the issues raised by the Staff Side, NC/JCM and demanded that, views of the Official Side should also be made known to the Staff Side.

The Cabinet Secretary agreed to hold a meeting with some of the Secretaries, particularly with the Secretary(Exp.), Secretary, DoP&T and whosoever is required, particularly for discussion.

It has been assumed that, a Cabinet Note is being prepared and is likely to be submitted to the Cabinet, Government of India, very shortly. We are not very sure that, the demands raised by the Staff Side, NC/JCM have been incorporated in that Cabinet Note.

In these circumstances I believe that, we should call a meeting of the NJCA and discuss about the strategy and future course of action, particularly in regard to Strike Notice on 9th June, 2016 and “Indefinite Strike” from 11th July, 2016.

The meeting of the NJCA will be held on 3rd June, 2016 at 16:00 hrs. in JCM Office, 13-C, Ferozshah Road, New Delhi.

Hope, all members of the NJCA will make it convenient to attend the meeting.

Comradely yours,

8.5 Lakh Central Government Employees participated in today’s strike – Confederation

8.5 Lakh Central Government Employees participated in today’s strike – Confederation

PRESS STATEMENT
CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS.
First Floor, North Avenue Post Office,
New Delhi. 110 001.

Website: confederationchq.blogspot.com.
E mail. confederation06@yahoo.co.in

Dated: 2nd September, 2015.

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.

Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, the Minister of State(IC) for Labour and Employment held a press conference here today. Elaborating on the initiatives and continuing efforts of the Government to address the issues and concerns of the Trade Unions for the welfare of workers, the Minister said that of the twelve demands of Trade Unions, the Government is positively working on at least nine demands. Shri Dattatreya said that as already assured while taking Labour Law reforms, the Trade Unions will be consulted. In continuation of earlier appeal to Trade Unions on 27th August, 2015, the Minister appealed again to reconsider their call for proposed strike tomorrow in the interest of workers and the Nation.

 

In this context, Shri Bandaru Dattatreya has sent a letter to to striking Trade Unions.

 

Here is the text of the letter-

 

“Dear

 

“This is with reference to my letter and appeal to you for reconsidering your call for strike on 2nd of September 2015 in the light of demands raised by the Central Trade Unions. While requesting you to reconsider your decision, I would like to bring the following to your consideration.

 

“The Charter of Demands given by you has been on high priority for me. I had held meeting with you on 19th Nov., 2014 to discuss the issues concerning the Charter of Demands. Thereafter, another meeting was held on 15th May, 2015 where Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble MoS (IC) for Petroleum and Natural Gas and Shri Piyush Goyal, Hon’ble MoS (IC) for Power also participated. The Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC), constituted by Hon’ble Prime Minister, held its first meeting with you on 19th July, 2015.

 

“The second meeting of IMC to discuss the various issues relating to the Charter of Demands with Central Trade Unions was held for two days on 26th& 27th August, 2015.

 

“In view of the suggestions given by you in the meetings held by Inter-Ministerial Committee, the Government assured the following:

 

1. “Government is seriously considering amendments to the Minimum Wages Act to give minimum wages to all workers. As per the proposed amendment, the Central Government will prescribe National Minimum Wage for three different categories of States. It would be mandatory for the States to fix their minimum wage not below the National Minimum Wage so prescribed by the Central Government. If the minimum wage already notified by a State is higher than the National Minimum Wage prescribed by the Central Government, the higher notified minimum wage shall prevail.

 

“While prescribing the National Minimum Wage the norms given by ILC and Supreme Court judgement will be taken into consideration. At present the National Floor Level Minimum Wage is Rs. 160 per day but with the implementation of the said norms the minimum wage would be not less than Rs. 273 per day.

 

2. “For the purpose of bonus, the wage eligibility limit and calculation ceiling would be appropriately revised. It is proposed to revise the wage eligibility limit from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 21,000 and calculation ceiling from Rs. 3500 to Rs. 7,000 or the minimum wage notified by the appropriate Government for that category of employment, whichever is higher. With the proposed revision of the minimum wages, the average calculation ceiling would be about Rs.10,000.

 

3. “The Government has taken many steps for the social security of all the workers, especially unorganized workers. The Government is working out ways to include construction workers, rickshaw pullers, auto rickshaw drivers and volunteers of different schemes like Aanganwadi Centres, Mid Day Meal Centres etc. For organized workers also many initiatives have been taken like Universal Account Number (UAN) for portability of account for EPFO members and Second Generation Health Reform Initiatives by ESIC.

 

4. “Regarding contract workers, a comprehensive review of the existing Act is being considered. The main features of the proposed revised Act would be deployment of contract labour through registered staffing agencies to be encouraged to ensure social security coverage and same working condition for contract workers as that of the regular workers. The issue of same wages to contract workers as that of regular workers for same nature of work requires wider consultation and a committee will be constituted for this purpose, if required.

 

5. “Government has already enhanced minimum pension for EPFO members and every pensioner gets minimum pension of Rs.1,000 per month perpetually.

 

6. “Labour Law reforms will be based on tripartite consultations as already stated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister. The States are also being advised to follow the tripartite process. I have held many tripartite consultation meetings with you on proposed labour law amendments. In future also, the tripartite consultation will be held for any proposed change in the labour laws.

 

7. “For strict adherence to Labour Law enforcement, advisory has been issued to the States and strict monitoring has been initiated by the Central Government. I have written a D.O. letter dated 25.05.2015 to Chief Ministers of all the States for strict enforcement of Labour Laws. Secretary (L&E) has also written D.O. letters dated 27.05.2015 and 26.08.2015 to Chief Secretaries of all the States in this regard. A circular for strict enforcement of labour laws was also issued by the Chief Labour Commissioner (Central) on 26/08/2015.

 

8. “For employment generation, the Government has taken many initiatives like Make in India, Skill India, Mudra Yojana and National Career Service Portal etc.

 

9. “Abolition of interviews for all recruitments at relatively junior level jobs which do not require any special knowledge/expertise is being done for transparency and expediting the process of recruitment.

 

10. “Inflation is lowest in last many years except for two items, onions and pulses. Government is taking necessary steps to contain the prices of these two commodities also.

 

11. “The Hon’ble Finance Minister in his concluding remarks has very clearly said that the new Government has charted out a very pragmatic economic agenda for the benefit of everyone, especially those who are poor and disadvantaged section of the society. However, this agenda needs your support and will appreciate if we can get your valuable inputs on this. He has also assured that for this a continuous dialogue will be maintained with the labour unions.

 

12. “He also mentioned that as far as the FDI in Railways is concerned, it is necessary because Railways require huge investment for upgrading the .infrastructure. This is possible only with the help of private sector and hence FDI is being allowed in railways and the FDI will be only in infrastructure and will not be allowed in the operation of Railways.

 

13. “As far as FDI in Defence is concerned, the Finance Minister has explained that India is the largest importer of military hardware in the world and this means a large amount of funds are being paid in foreign exchange to outsiders including private organizations. On the other side when we produce military hardware within the country, we not only save in terms of foreign exchange but also create many jobs within the country. Hence it is very important that we take advantage of FDI in defence to achieve three objectives of (i) saving foreign exchange, (ii) creation of jobs and (iii) more importantly to ensure that we are not dependent on outsiders for the security of the nation.

 

Finally, as the Hon’ble Prime Minister has already stated, the journey of labour reforms will not be meaningful until we have dialogue and consultation with the labour and labour unions. I assure that we will have consultations with labour unions and give due weightage to the views of labour unions in all such initiatives including the initiatives of other Departments which may affect the labour.

 

With warm regards.”

7th CPC Report & 2nd September 2015 Strike

To
All Affiliates

Comrade,
The latest information is that the 7th CPC report will be submitted only in last week of September, we should not be too worried about this as the 7th CPC report was expected to submit its report in first week of September , the delay is only by few days only and that too the 7th CPC period is upto end of September 2015 as the 7th CPC was constituted on 28th Feb 2014 and allowed 18 months time the 7th CPC has started functioning only in April 2014 onwards.

The COC Karnataka meeting held on 4th August 2015 at RMS office has decided to participate in the 2nd September 2015 strike program as per the directions of the Confederation of CG Employees New Delhi. Now due to many reasons the 7th CPC report release has been postponed, now let us to utilise the postponement period and put additional pressure on the 7th CPC and the Government of India to accept our justified demand’s of Central Government Employees such as minimum wage of Rs 26,000/- with effect from Jan 2014, fitment formula of 3.72 , five promotion scheme , date of effect of the 7th CPC from 1/1/2014 etc.

 

Comrades if the 2nd September 2015 strike by the Central Government Employees is a success, then we can get more financial benefits from the 7th CPC and the Government of India apart from other important issues of unwanted labour reforms will be solved.

 

I request all comrades to prepare and educate the grass root leaders and employees on our demands. Conduct gate meetings / general body meetings from 11th August onwards.

Comradely yours

NATIONAL JOINT COUNCIL OF ACTION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
4, STATE ENTRY ROAD,
NEW DELHI

RESOLUTION ADOPTED AT THE MASSIVE RALLY AT JANTAR MANTAR (PARLIAMENT STREET) ON 28 APRIL 2015

The massive congregation of the representatives of Central Govt Employees who have come from various parts of the country held at Jantar Mantar before the Indian Parliament on 28-04-2015 decided to commence the indefinite strike action from 23rd November 2015 from 6 AM having failed to elicit any positive response from the Government in settlement of the 10 point Charter of Demands submitted months back. It was also decided that the Railways and Defence organizations will conduct the strike Ballot as per the provision of the Industrial Disputes Act and Recognition Rules before commencing the strike from 23-11-2015.

The massive gathering adopted the resolution unanimously exhorting the central Govt. Employees to prepare for the eventual strike action in all earnestness and make it a historic one.

The meeting congratulates the employees for forging exemplary unity and carrying out various programmes chalked out by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) after the national convention on 11th December 2014. Even though the Govt. was compelled to set up the 7th CPC on account of the sanctions generated through the action programmes, Govt. has refused to grant Interim Relief and merger of DA and excluded the Gramin Dak Sewaks of the Postal Department from the ambit of the 7th CPC.

It is a matter of regret that in spite of public admission of non-privatisation of Indian Railways by Prime Minister of India and assurance of Minister of Railways on various occasions, including Parliament, Dr. Deb Roy Committee had submitted a report which is a clear roadmap for privatisation of IR.

The meeting noted that the Government has purposely ensured the closure of Joint Consultative Machinery, the negotiating forum set up in 1966 for Central Government Employees to discuss and bring about settlement of their demands.

The meeting chaired by Secretary (Personnel) on 25th February 2015 did not bring about settlement on any single issue of the Charter of Demands.

The meeting unanimously decided to demand before the Government to convene the meeting of National Council, JCM immediately and settle the following charter of demands, if at all it wants to avoid confrontation with its own employees.

No Fund Allocation to 7th Pay Commission – Central Government Employees Protest

No Fund Allocation to 7th Pay Commission – Central Government Employees Protest

 

Employees of the Income Tax Department, located in Nungambakkam, launched a protest yesterday condemning the fact that the Central Budget had not allocated sufficient funds to the 7th Pay Commission.

A meeting was held at the Income Tax office premises yesterday by the Central Government Employees Sammelan, during which the recently announced budget was analyzed and criticized. The protests were led by the Sammelan’s general secretary, Duraipandi. While addressing the gathering, he said,

 

“The economic report submitted by the Government is not in favour of the masses. During the election campaigns, BJP promised to reduce inflation, bring back black money, and to eradicate unemployment.

“But the fact remains that even when the prices of petroleum and crude oil fell by nearly 50% around, the world, the Central Government had actually increased the excise tax and made sure that the benefits of falling global prices don’t reach the general public. The increase in service taxes led to an all-round increase in prices.

 

“While the Government reduces corporate taxes on cash-rich companies from 30% to 25, it provided no relief to the salaried classes. Allocations to social welfare, medicines, and education remain extremely insufficient. Moreover, sufficient funds were not allocated to the 7th Pay Commission. We are going to hold protests outside the Parliament on April 28 to protest this callous attitude of the Government, to object to its decision to not merge the dearness allowance and basic pay, and to demand immediate announcement of interim relief.”

Central Government Employees to Protest outside the Parliament on April 28; Plan for Indefinite Strike

Central Government Employees to Protest outside the Parliament on April 28; Plan for Indefinite Strike

 

Central government employees have announced that they are going to protest outside the Parliament on April 28 against the Government’s decision to not hike the income tax slab. There are plans to launch an indefinite strike in July.

 

Protests were held at the Income Tax office in Nungambakkam on behalf of the central Government Employees Mahasammelanam, against the Government’s decision to not hike the minimum tax levels this time. The protests were led by the Sammelan’s general secretary, M. Duraipandian. Union leaders like J. Ramamurthy and S. Sundaramurthy presided over the protests.

 

In a media interview during the protests, Duraipandian said – Fund allocation deficits – “The Central Government budget submitted on February 28 brought no relief to the poor and the middle class. It was entirely in favour of the rich and the wealthy. Even though the prices of crude oil fell all over the world, the Government ensured that it remained the same in India. With an increase in excise taxes, the prices of petroleum and diesel actually increased in the country.

 

“The Government reduced corporate taxes from 30% to 25, but failed to increase the tax slab for the salaried class. How can the government then call it the budget of the masses? Allocations to social welfare, health and education were also very minimal.

 

“The BJP, that came to power by promising to curb inflation and increasing prices, is now involved in activities that lead to the very same things. Therefore, minimum income tax slab should be immediately raised to Rs.5 lakhs. Also, the Government must allocate funds to declare interim relief for the 7th Pay Commission.

“We are going to protest outside the Parliament on April 28, to present these demands. More than 10 lakh employees from departments like Railways, insurance and postal services are going to participate in it. We also have plans to launch an indefinite strike in the month of July. Our aim is to get the Government to agree to our demands. Strike is our last resort. If the Government is ready to grant our demands, we are willing to reconsider our decision to conduct a strike.”
