The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, of  which our Association is an affiliate, has given a call for holding demonstrations during the Lunch Break on 23.04.2013 in protest against orders still having not been issued to enhance the rate of DA effective 01.01.13. 

Accordingly all Circle/Branch/Unit Secretaries are advised to arrange for massive demonstrations before all offices during the Lunch Break on 23.04.13, particularly before all offices of Chief Commissioners and Commissioners, and positively send telegrams (from all venues where demonstrations are held) in the following format to the Prime Minister. 

PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA
SOUTH BLOCK
NEW DELHI  110 001

EMPLOYEES AGITATED OVER DELAY IN GRANT OF DA, URGE TO EXPEDITE ISSUANCE OF ORDERS.

All India Central Excise Inspectors’ Association, ……………(name of unit/branch/circle)

The Confederation’s Communication in this regard and the letter written by the Secretary General of the Confederation to the PM are reproduced below:  

CONFEDERATION OF
CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS

No. Conf/27 /2013 - Dated 17th April 2013

Comrades,

DELAY IN GRANT OF DA - HOLD PROTEST DEMONSTRATION ON 23RD APRIL 2013

            Since the implementation of the recommendations of the 4th central pay commission in 1986, the Dearness Allowance (DA) is paid in two six-monthly installments – in March and September of every year. The practice followed since then is that the order granting DA to government employees is issued in March and September itself.

            This time the practice in force since 1986 is violated. Our enquiries with concerned Ministries informed us that the file is already moved for Cabinet approval. But it is nearly a month now. The cabinet has found no time to take a decision on this.

            This naturally is quiet disturbing, especially in the time of galloping price line. The employees have, in the past, fought bitterly for grant of DA and the 3rd CPC gave a definite formula for DA in the aftermath of the one day strike on 19th September 1968. We cannot allow the hard won DA to be tampered with.

            Confederation has written to Prime Minister conveying the disquiet amongst the amongst the employees over the inordinate delay in the grant of additional installment of DA due from 1st January 2013 and urging the Prime Minister to take immediate steps to assuage the feelings of the employees. Copy of the letter is given along with this Circular.

            The Secretariat of Confederation therefore calls upon every affiliate as well as State Committee of Confederation to organise lunch hour demonstration in the work place on 23rd April 2013, Tuesday and send the following telegram to the Prime Minister of India.

            Text of Telegram: EMPLOYEES AGITATED OVER DELAY IN GRANT OF DA, URGE TO EXPEDITE ISSUANCE OF ORDERS.

            Each affiliate and State Committee of Confederation may send a detailed report on implementation of the programme in their organisation/state to the Confederation CHQ.

            With greetings

Yours fraternally

Dr Manmohan Singh,
Hon'ble Prime Minister of India
South Block,
New Delhi – 110001



Sir,

            Subject: Grant of Dearness Allowance to Central Govt Employees and Officers – Reg.

            I am to invite your kind attention to the delay in the grant of additional installment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and officers and the consternation it is causing amongst the employees.

            It would be apt to point out here that since the implementation of the 4th CPC recommendations with effect from 1st January 1986, the Dearness Allowance is paid to Central Government employees in two six monthly installments – along with the salary for March and September every year. The 5th and 6th CPCs also recommended the same principle for payment of additional installments of DA and since then the order granting additional installment of Dearness Allowance is being issued well in advance honouring the recommendations.

            The Central Government Employees were expecting the announcement of grant of additional installment of Dearness Allowance (8 % with effect from 1st January 2013) and Office Memorandum on that in the month of March 2013 itself. The delay of more than a month has led to disquiet amongst the employees.

            I shall be thankful if the fears of the central government of employees are allayed by immediately releasing the additional instalment of Dearness Allowance with effect from 1st January 2013 without any further delay.

            Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours faithfully

News regarding CBEC Cadre Restructuring is that the file has reportedly been  approved by the Finance Minister last week, and now it shall take the route through the DoP&T and the Committee of Secretaries,  besides the Group ofMinisters before it is placed before the Union Cabinet for final approval.  Last week’s development is a significant step in the right direction, but is no reason for us to be complacent. We have to continue to raise our collective voice till our just demands  for removal of intra-cadre and inter-cadre disparities is not removed , and fair opportunities for career advancements are not made available to us. The scene unfolding in the next few weeks will undoubtedly have far reaching ramifictions on careers of every s ingle employee under the CBEC. 

A report on the holding of demonstration on  23.04.13 may please be e- mailed to me at ajitkgbhilai@gmail.com  by concerned Circle/ Branch/ Unit Secretaries. Needless to say, All India office bearers of the AICEIA should co-ordinate organizing of the demonstrations in their respective stations and states/regions.

Yours fraternally,

Ajit Kumar K G
Secretary General
