The letter of AIPRPA CHQ and the reply of Secretary General NCCPA are reproduced below with the request for all Postal & RMS Pensioners to come forward to strengthen the AIPRPA ipso facto the NCCPA organisations:

AIPRPA / Dec / 1 Dated 31st December, 2014

Secretary General
New Delhi – 110001

Sub: Formation of AIPRPA in all States and Districts – Certain inhibitions and hesitations in some areas – regarding.

Dear Comrade,

You may kindly remember that the AIPRPA (All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association) was founded in the 1stfoundation AIC at Vellore (Tamilnadu) in which several leaders including yourself had participated. The AIPRPA was formed as per the decision of the unanimous resolution adopted in the 9th Federal Council of NFPE held at Hyderabad in the month of June, 2013.

As we proceed to constitute State and District level organisations, we are facing a situation in one or two states like Assam and West Bengal where the Postal Pensioners are feeling that this formation of AIPRPA may weaken the united pensioner's movement being built by NCCPA under your leadership. There is also a feeling that formation of a monolithic Pensioners' organisation for the Postal Pensioners is a step towards weakening the composite CGPA Organisations.

I have seen your reply letter to a similar question from the Secretary General of National Federation of Civil Accounts Employees. I therefore request you kindly to clarify as to how the NCCPA look the step being taken by us to establish AIPRPA as a monolithic postal pensioners' organisation? As we are proceeding to sit in our All India Managing Committee soon, your enlightenment will  help us in our endeavour to build our organisation.

Thanking you comrade,                                                    
Yours comradely,

General Secretary

Dear Com. K. Ragvendran,

Thanks for your letter dated 31.12.2014. As I was out of Delhi, there is a certain delay in reply for which I may kindly be excused.

NCCPA is not at all opposed to the idea of a monotithic Pensioners Organisation of Postal Pensioners. we have seen that formation of Central Government (Composite) Pensioners Associations have not been
 able to motivate all pensioners to join them. If  postal pensioner has initiated to form CGPA, the majority of those who have joined it, are Postal Pensioners and only a few Pensioners from other Departments have joined it. If on the other hand an Audit & Accounts Pensioner has initiated to form Pensioners Association, the majority who have joined it are Audit & Accounts Pensioners with few from other Departments. Whereas Postal Pensioners Associations / Railway Pensioners Associations / Central Excise & Customs Pensioners Associations whereever formed have obtained membership from most of the pensioners from respective Departments. On the basis of these ground realities, NCCPA totally favours Pensioners Associations of respective Departments which can federate into a National level Pensioners Associations of respective Departments and these federations can affiliate with NCCPA while their Circle / State level bodies may affiliate with the State /Circle Committees of NCCPA. This is the pattern which is obtaining in Confederation of CGEs & Workers as well.

The CGP as already in existence would obviously be reluctant for such a reorganisation of Pensioners Associations as they would take this move as poaching away some of their members. If we explain that since these Departments wise Pensioners Associations will affiliate at the National level with NCCPA and at State / Circle level with state committees, the composite character would be restored with wider unity amongst the Pensioners, I hope this will satisfy them.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,
Secretary General

The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Cabinet Secretariat,
Rashtrpati Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

I solicit your kind attention to my letter in No.NC/JCM/2014 dated 16 th December, 2014, wherein we had conveyed the decisions taken at the National Convention of representatives of the organisations participating in the JCM. We are distressed that you have chosen not to respond to our letter till date. We have so far not received any communication from any quarter of the convening of the National Council of the JCM. No effort has also been taken by any Ministry to convene the Departmental Councils.  

We have now been given to understand that the Government has taken serious steps to set up a corporation to carry on the functions of the 41 ordnance Factories, presently functioning under the Ministry of Defence. We have also noted that the report of the Committee set up by the Government to corporatize the functions of the Postal Department. The inordinate delay in settling the demands for Interim Relief and Merger of DA is causing distress amongst the Central Government employees. The Railwaymen are particularly agitated over the decision of the Government to induct FDI to the extent of 100% in Railways, which we are aware cannot be done without privatisation of the Railways. The declaration of the Convention, which we had forwarded to you vide our letter cited had amply explained the anguish of the Central Government employees.

In order to register our opposition to the recent decision of the Government to corporatize the functions of the Ordnance factories, we have amended Item No.2 of the charter of demands. We send herewith the revised charter of demands.  

The National JCA met today and took note of the silence on the part of the Government to our pleadings. The meeting has, therefore, decided to go ahead with the agitational programmes, the first phase of which will culminate in a massive March to Parliament by Central Government employees on 28th April, 2015. If no settlement is brought about on the 10 point charter of demands, we will be constrained to go for an indefinite strike action, the date of commencement of which will be decided on 28 th April, 2015.
Thanking you,

Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

  7. The entire month of March and the first half of April will be utilised for campaigning amongst the employees at all work- spots.
