All Office bearers and the Secretaries General of Constituent Organizations

Dear Friends,

CCGGOO Extend Support to Massive Dharna in front of Finance Minister Office on 23rd May 2017.

The four months time limit fixed by the Group of Ministers on 30-06-2016,  for implementation of the assurances given to Leaders of Central Government Employees expired on 30-10-2016. Now, it is another ten months thereafter. The Government   has  gone   back   on  all   its  assurances   and   has  succeeded   in indefinitely   delaying  the  implementation   of  assurances  given  by  Group  of Ministers to the leaders of Central Government  Employees  including  grant of revised HRA and other allowances with effect from 01-01-2016.

There  is  no  improvement   in  the  revision   of  minimum   wage  and  fitment formula.  Pension  Committee  headed  by Secretary,  Pension  has submitted  its report  rejecting  the demand  of the JCM  staff side for implementing  Option-I parity for pensioners, recommended by 7th CPC. The New Pension Scheme Committee constituted by the Government fanning expectations has belied their hope by stating  that withdrawal  of NPS or guaranteeing  minimum pension  is not under the purview of the NPS in Committee. Owing to the unduly stringent conditions,   and   not   accepting   the   financial   benefit   on   hierarchal   pattern imposed on MACP, thousands of employees are denied eligible promotion. Revision of pay of employees  of autonomous  body could not be implemented by the Ministries  due to many  retrograde  conditions  imposed  by the Finance Ministry. Orders for revision of Pension and grant of Dearness Relief to Autonomous  body  Pensioners  are not yet issued  by the  Government.  In this backdrop  the Confederation  of Central  Government  Employees  and Workers has to take  the  lead  in protesting  by organizing  and channelising  the anger, disappointment  and discontentment  of entire Central  Government  employees and pensioners, including autonomous body employees and Pensioners.

It is decided to organise massive dharna in front of Finance Minister’s Office at North Block, New Delhi on 23rd May 2017 with the following demands before the Government.

Increase minimum pay and fitment formula.

Revise allowances including HRA with the existing percentage with effect from 01.01.2016.

Grant option-I pension parity recommended by 7th CPC.

Revise pension and grant dearness relief to autonomous body pensioners Implement   positive   recommendations   of  Kamlesh   Chandra  Committee   on Gramin Dak Sevaks. Grant Civil Servant Status.

Regularise  all Casual, Part-Time,  Contingent  and Contract  Workers  and grant equal pay for equal work.

Remove stringent conditions imposed for grant of MACP and grant hierarchical financial benefit to MACP etc.

In respect of allowances,  a Common detailed memorandum  was submitted  by JCM organizations and CCGGOO to 7th Central Pay Commission. 7th CPC took more than 25 months and recommended a faulty & reduced percentage of HRA & Transport Allowances  and abolished all other allowances. CCGGOO & JCM organizations objected and Government appointed Empowered Committee. Empowered  Committee  referred  this matter  to the Government.  Government appointed the Allowances Committee headed by Finance Secretary. Allowances Committee  took more  than 10 months  and now handed  over a report  to the Finance Minister.  Finance Ministry  again refers this report to the Empowered Committee. Empowered Committee will again examine this issue and refer it to the  Cabinet.  Not  only  this,  after  Cabinet  approval,  we  will  have  to wait  for Notifications/resolution, office  orders  and  anomalies  in allowances  & endorsement   thereof.   For  resolving   anomalies   in  the  allowances,   another allowance anomaly committee may, in all likelihood, be formed.

Confederation  of Central  Government  Gazetted  Officers  organisations  is also pursuing  these  demands.  As  the  demands  are  very  much  common to  the Gazetted officers and Promotee officers, it has been decided to extend solidarity support  by  the  Gazetted  Officers  to the  massive  dharna in  front  of  Finance Minister’s  Office at North  Block,  New Delhi  on 23rd May 2017. All affiliated organisations  of the  Confederation  of Central  Government  Gazetted  Officers organsiation   are  requested  to mobilise  large  number  of  Gazetted  Officers available in and around Delhi and make the programme a grand success. It has been further decided to organise a Lunch Hour meeting in the respective field offices and protest against the attitude of the Government on the same day.

 Yours Fraternally,


Secretary General
