I thank all comrades of the West Bengal, Sikkim & Andaman & Nicobar Circle of the AICEIA for giving me an opportunity  or rather a privilege, to participate in their 3rd conference on 21st and 22nd of December at Kolkata. It was a truly enriching experience for me. The democratic, participative and inclusive manner in which the Association activities are conducted there truly set benchmarks for the other Circles and units to follow. While the conduct, all-round contribution, and leadership of All India Office bearers of the Association hailing from WB, and equally that of the delegates from that Circle, in CEC’s and Conventions at the national level are always impressive and well known all across the country, the enthusiasm and dedication I witnessed over the past two days in a State/Circle level Conference has left me spellbound- I am truly amazed at the vibrant and robust organization of the Circle.
My congratulations to all members of the Circle for the successful conducting of the Conference, and I extend my warmest Fraternal Greetings to all of you once again and my Best Wishes to the newly elected Office Bearers of the Circle. Especially worth mentioning is the fact that even the junior-most and  youngest Inspectors participate  with such enthusiasm, standing shoulder to shoulder with seasoned veterans of many a campaign – what a wonderful sight it was.  It is a re-assuring  and comforting  thought  that to  bear and carry forward the torch of the Association, we have numerous willing and able hands.   Thanks for all the love you showered on me on these two days  in the City of Joy - they will always remain cherished in my memory.

Government bent down partially under the pressure of the working classes movement

The Central Government had introduced the New Pension System (NPS) with effect from January 1, 2004 (except for armed forces) for its employees.
In respect of Central Government employees who have joined in Government Service on or after 1.1.2004, this scheme is mandatory.
Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA), is the interim regulatory body for NPS which was established by Government of India on 23rd August 2003.
In NPS, a government employee who is covered under NPS contributes 10% of his/her salary towards pension along with matching contribution from the employer.
While contributions in NPS are collected from Central Government Employees since 1.1.2004, the pension contributions of Central Government employees have been handed over to Pension fund Managers viz, LIC Pension Fund Limited, SBI Pension Funds Pvt. Limited and UTI Retirement Solutions Limited in a predefined proportion, only from 1st April 2008.
Now, the Minister of State for Finance, Shri Namo Narain Meena in written reply to an Un-starred Question in Lok Sabha on 16.12.2011, stated that the institutional architecture for NPS could not be operationalised by the Interim Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA), for the period from 1.1.2004 to 31.03.2008 and therefore, the contribution for the Government employees under the NPS during this period could not be invested in the market.
A total amount of Rs. 971.48 crore, collected towards contribution for Government employees, from 2004 to March 2008, under the New Pension System (NPS), was credited to the Public Account of India.  The funds credited to Public Account will carry an interest @ 8% p.a.
PFRDA Bill, 2011 which would give official status to PFRDA has already been approved by Cabinet and placed before Parliament. However, the same is yet to be passed in the parliament for enactment.

Secretary General and Vice President (North) persuaded the three following issues in New Delhi:
·  Anomaly of senior drawing less pay than juniors arising out of fixation of pay after revision of grade pay from 4200/- to 4600/-,
·         Progress of Cadre Review,
·         Renewal of recognition.
The first point was discussed with different Board officials, Expenditure Ministry & Dy. Secy. D.O.P&T;  it was understood that the first part in relation to senior drawing less pay than juniors arising out of fixation of pay after revision of grade pay from 4200/- to 4600/- is fixed now and for the manner of fixation part i.e. grant of one additional increment to all those Inspectors who got promotions or recruited before 01.01.2006, Expenditure referred the file to D. O. P. & T.  Board could not issue the order as the two issues are processed through a single note.  It was assured to us that the Board would be issuing the letter immediately after getting the file from D.O.P&T. Hence the confusion regarding fixation of pay at the minimum of 17140/- is cleared and would be effected shortly.
The delegation met Joint Secy. (D.O.P&T) Sh. Rajeev Kapoor & different officials inclusive of Sh. Anant Kumar to get a clear Idea about the proposal and progress. It was understood that the file is with Deputy Secretary (D.O.P&T), they are examining the CR proposal especially for HAG scale; it was further intimated to the delegation that D.O.P&T is not only sympathetic but also trying to find out some solution on the acute stagnation of Inspectors & Superintendents. Till now there was no trace of curtailment of A.C. posts, discussions are on regarding one time relaxation for filling up of the posts arising out of CR through promotions only. It was assured to us that D.O.P&T shall complete its scrutiny within a fortnight from now and shall send it to Cadre Review Group within the DOPT. Once it was accepted by Cadre Review Group the rest is the implementation part.
Except Mumbai we have received DDO certificates from almost all parts of this country, in Mumbai at least more than 1100 members are deducting membership fees from salary for lack of supervision these DDO certificates and the contributions are not reaching to the Association.  Members of Mumbai are requested to deposit the cheque in the Association Bank Account available in this blog. Once again we are able to submit more than 35% DDO certificates to Board for renewal of recognition. All the units are once again requested to submit their All India  contribution forthwith as Association is struggling with lack of fund.
