No. AIPAEA/CHQ/Circular/2017/3                                                        Dated 09.05.2017


KUDOS, to young comrades of Nagpur! Their united effort was behind the successful holding of the Central Working Committee meeting of AIPAEA from 22.03.2017 to 23.03.2017. Reception committee held the CWC meeting in a very grand manner; in fact the event was like a conference. A Galaxy of leaders attended the CWC meeting Com. M. Krishnan, S G Confederation, Com. R. N. Parashar, S. G. NFPE & G. S. of P-3, Com Giri Raj Singh President NFPE & GS R-3, Com. P. Suresh, G S of R-IV, Com. Virendra Tiwari GS AIPSBCOEA, Com. D. V. Daktod Ex. SG AIPAEA, Com. A.P. Sastry, Ex President, AIPAEA, Com. R.S.Bagel, former Working President, AIPAEA, Com. Nitesh Nasre GS COC Nagpur, Com. Ahsok Throl, Secretary of State govt. employees union and may retired comrades graced the occasion. The Director of Accounts (Postal) Nagpur and Prof. Shrinivas khandewale, an eminent economist of Nagpur University also graced the occasion.  All units except Delhi, Raipur, Kapoorthala, Ranchi and Shillong attended CWC.

Comrade M. Krishnan, Secretary General of CCGE&W inaugurated the inaugural cum open session of the CWC meeting. In his address com. Krishnan elaborately explained the developments since the appointment of 7th CPC till date and the present status of various committees constituted by the government to look into the issues of Central Government employees after implementation of 7th CPC.  

He informed that the government has backed out from the promise given to the NJCA by G.O.M. in the meeting held on 30/06/2016. All the committees are only eyewash and the genuine demands of the Central Government employees like minimum wage, increase in fitment formula, allowance including HRA & TPA, option-I of pension are not adhered to by the government. He told that the Confederation has a history of struggle and conducted a successful one-day strike on 16 March 2017 on 21-point charter of demand.  He appealed to the house to be ready for more struggle in the near future to achieve our demands.

Shri. Shrinivas khandewale, the renowned economist the main speaker in the open session, spoke at length on the issues faced by the common man of the country. He said that the root cause of all the miseries of common people lies in the adverse impact of the new economic policies being pursued by the successive governments in the country. New economic policies are responsible for jobless growth and are widening the gap between the rich and the poor. Natural resources and the wealth are controlled by the miniscule number of rich and power full corporate houses. MNCs and corporate houses are influencing & dictating terms in formulation of programmes and policies of the government. He said that the forces that once propagated and pursued the policies of globalization, liberalization are now talking of de-globalization after Donald Trump taking charge at the helm of affairs in USA. He said that the working class has to educate the other sections of society and has to wage a long battle to compel the political leadership to reverse the new economic policies.                 
Almost the problems faced by the units were common in nature; all the units were facing acute shortage of staff in all cadres, inadequate provision of infra-structure, no provision for training, threat of decentralization of PAO after implementation of CSI etc. General Secretary while summing up the discussion gave replies to the queries of the units and placed before the house, the latest updates on various issues faced by the units. He categorically said that the committee on the re-structuring of PAO after implementation of CSI, has submitted its report to Dte, and because of tough stand taken by AIPAEA, the threat of Decentralization of PAO has been thwarted/averted. He appealed to house to be cautious on the issue and assured that association will protect interest of its member at any cost. He told that repeated representations and negotiations are not yielding results, so on 5 point charter, he proposed three phased agitation programme (a) Lunch hour demonstration and sending resolutions to authorities. (b) Day long protest by wearing black ribbon/badges (c) day long Dharna. 


1.   Vacation of Victimization of staff /vindictive actions of D A (P), Cuttack against Circle Secretary /settlement of charge sheets of Staff of PAOs Chennai & Kolkata.
2.   Wrong setting of type test paper for Departmental Exam for promotion to LDC in PAOs for MTS qualified in 12th class or equivalent held in the month of August 2016 – Request for revaluation.
3.   Provide Trade Union facilities in PAOs Guwahati, Shillong etc.,by allowing informal meetings, providing notice board, Association room etc.

5.   Forwarding of applications for transfer under Rule 38, relieving of officials for newly formed PAOs, full-fledged functioning of newly formed PAOs like Deharadun.
