He informed that Government had categorically ruled out, on the floor of Parliament, any proposal under consideration for enhancing minimum wages and fitment formula.

Agenda for the Periodical meetings have already been submitted by us.

Shri Dilip Padhye, Sr. DDG (PAF) also graced the CWC meeting and interacted with the Delegates/Observers. GS placed four issues which were of prime concern for AIPAEA and its members viz. (a) RR of AAO cadre and modification sought by association (b) Trade union victimization (c) discrimination in tenure transfer between Gr B & C officials and Gr A officers (d) Problems faced in implementation/roll out of CSI in PAO and (e) Issue of Rule 38 transfer.  Sr DDG, gave replies on all the issues and also told the steps that are being taken by the Department to resolve the issues.

Com. A. P. Sastry, Ex. President of AIPAEA also addressed the august house. He extended his best wishes for the success of the CWC and assured his continued full support to the Association in future also. He thanked the reception committee for their hospitality and fine arrangement. He explained how we were stagnating at 5000-8000 scale when we demanded and got 10% SCF quota promotion in JAO. We also achieved amalgamation of AAO cadres of DOP & DOT. According to him the Department’s hasty move of filing caveats in all the High Courts, is a mere wastage of public money. He thanked the CHQ for inviting him to the CWC and giving him an opportunity to share his views with the house.

On the second day, Com. Giri Raj Singh, President NFPE & GS R-III addressed the CWC and conveyed his best wishes. He told house how their seniors fought for bonus and I am enjoying the same. Similarly DA was also not released automatically but we have to agitate every three months for the release of DA installment. Government is ruthlessly closing several units in Printing Press, Defence and indulging in mindless privatization of Railways. He also said that the Government in the process of implementing the 7th CPC has curtailed several benefits hitherto enjoyed by us. Our weakness is that our membership does not participate in the agitational programs. He lauded the reception committee for the hospitality and fine arrangement. 

In the unit reporting all the Circle Secretaries reflected the issues faced in their unit, their membership, remittance of quota, participation in agitational programmes. Many of the problems faced by the units were common in nature, like acute shortage of staff in all cadres, inadequate provision of infra-structure, lack of training, threat of decentralization of PAO after implementation of CSI, arbitrary rejection of the Association’s demands in the final RR of AAO, Cadre-restructuring and execution of Rule 38 transfer cases. Bengaluru, Nagpur, Guwahati & Hyderabad raised the issue of implementation of CSI in their office and other problems. Hyderabad, Patna, Trivandrum, Ahmedabad raised the issue of provision of adequate space for Office accommodation and building. Guwahati, Shillong, Trivandrum & Lucknow units raised the issue of Rule 38 transfers. It was requested to go for special local recruitment for the Assam, NE & Trivandrum Circles to fill the vacant posts as a onetime measure.
