and working class of India, Late Com. A.B. Burdhan. The manch of the
conference hall was named as

State Government Employees Federation and Vice President CITU. The
Reception Committee under the
able and dynamic Leadership of Com. R.K. Shrivastava (Chairman) and Com.
Nilesh.D.Nasare (General Secretary, Reception Committee & GS, COC Vidarbha
Region, Maharashtra) made excellent arrangements for the successful conducting
of the historic 26th Nagpur National conference.
The National Conference commenced on 7th February 2020

Confederation, hoisted the Confederation flag. Tribute to martyrs was paid by
offering flowers at the Martyrs column by Chief Guests, Leaders, delegates and

Committee delivered Introductory speech. Com.R.K.Shrivastava Chairman,
Reception Committee delivered welcome address. Com: Tapan Sen, General Secretary, CITU and
Com. Amarjeet Kaur, General Secretary, AITUC addressed the open session as
Both the Leaders explained in
detail the present Political and economic scenario of the country and the world. The leaders stated
that the BJP-led NDA Government has devastated the Country’s economy and the
people of our country and the working class are suffering. The growth in the
agricultural, industrial and service sectors are sliding down and lakhs of
people have become jobless. Protests against the destructive neo liberal
polices are increasing and participation of workers in both sectoral and
general strikes are also increasing. About more than 25 crores workers, both
organised and unorganised participated in the strike on 8th January 2020. The Kisans and agricultural workers extended
full support to the strike.
The BJP led NDA Government is
going ahead with aggressive communal
agenda to divide the people and the
Citizenship Amendment Act 2019 is passed in
Parliament for further polarisation on communal lines. But the people
came out in protest in large numbers irrespective of caste or Religion. The
students are in the forefront of the struggle. The BJP Government is becoming
more and more authoritarian and is
suppressing the dissent of the people and students who are on struggle path, by using brute force.
Both the leaders called upon
the Central Government Employees to intensify their struggle against the
neo-liberal policies of the Government
and also against the attack on their job security, wages , Social
security and Trade Union rights.
The open session was also
addressed by Com. Subhash Lamba, All India President of AISGEF, Com:R.N Patne (
LICEU), and Com. V.V. Assai, (BEFI). Vote of thanks was offered by Com. P.U
Khadse, President, C-O- C, Nagpur.

R. N. Parashar,
Confederation of Central Govt
Employees & Workers
Policy and Programme Resolution
(Adopted in the 26th National Conference
held at Nagpur on
1 This 26th
National Conference of Confederation of Central Government Employees
& Workers, held at Nagpur on 7th
& 8th February 2020, after detailed deliberations has come to the unanimous
conclusion that the attitude of the NDA Government in power at Centre is completely negative
towards the genuine and legitimate demands of the Central Government employees
including Gramin Dak Sevaks and casual/contract workers. None of the 7th CPC
related modifications sought by the JCM National Council, staffside, is
settled. The assurance given to the leaders of
the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) regarding increase in Minimum
pay and fitment formula is not honoured and the employees and pensioners are
2. The New contributory Pension Scheme (NPs)
has in effect become "No pension Scheme". Inspite of Several memorandums and petitions
submitted and also agitational programmes including strikes, the Central
Government is not ready to scrap NPS and
restore OPS and also to guarantee 50%
of the last pay drawn as Minimum pension.
3. About seven lakhs posts are lying vacant in
various Central Government departments. Though the Government repeatedly states
that there is no ban on recruitments and filling up of direct recruitment quota
vacancies, no time bound action is taken to fill up the vacant posts.
4. HRA arrears, MACP Bench mark, MACP hierarchical promotional pay
scale, and date of effect from 01-01-2006, option- I for pensioners --
Government is not ready to reconsider its negative stand. Three lakhs
Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal
department are yet to be treated as Civil Servants. Exploitation of casual and contract workers
continue and equal pay for equal work is denied to them.
5. Large scale outsourcing, downsizing,
closure of establishments, Corporatisation, and privatisation has become the
order of the day. Privatisation of
Railways and mass scale outsourcing of the work done by the Defence Civilian
employees are in full swing. Proposal to
corporatize defence ordnance factories is not yet dropped. 12 out of 17 Govt. of India Printing Presses
are ordered to be closed. Same is the
fate with other departmental printing presses including Railway Printing
6. Autonomous body employees and Pensioners
are denied their rightful pay and pension revision in certain departments, due
to stringent conditions imposed by the Finance Ministry. Compassionate appointments have become a
mirage due to the 5% ceiling imposed.
7. Trade Union facilities are denied. Orders banning demonstrations and dharnas are
issued. The draconian FR 56 (j) and
Pension Rules 48 are misused as a short cut to punish and victimise employees
who are not in the good book of higher-ups. JCM forums have become mere talking
shops without any positive outcome.
Recognition under CCS(RSA) Rules 1993 are delayed and Departmental
council meetings have become defunct in many departments. Government sponsored unions are given undue
patronage. Recognition of fighting
organisations are withdrawn on flimsy grounds and Trade Union facilities are
denied to the Chief Executives of Recognised Associations. To throttle the democratic functioning of the
Unions, the Government of India has now proposed to restrict the tenure of
office of the elected representatives of Unions/Associations/Federations of
8. This Conference has taken serious note of
the continuing onslaughts on the independence and democratic functioning of the
constitutional institutions in the Country, the steps taken to create a fear
psychosis amongst the people, especially amongst minorities, the conscious
disruption of the secular social fabric of the society assiduously built over
the years, the receding confidence in the independence of judiciary in the
country and above all the concerted endeavour to fan the communal feelings to
cover up the failure on economic front and the growing unemployment, inflation,
rise in prices of essential commodities etc.
9. This National Conference is of the
considered opinion that the wage revision of Central Govt. employees should be
once in five years, as in the case of many public sector undertakings and
certain State Governments. The last wage
revision of Central Govt. employees had taken place with effect from
01-01-2016. Five years will be over by
31-12-2020. Also taking into consideration
the fact that the 7th CPC Wage Revision was the worst wage revision, it is high
time that the Government initiate the process for appointing next Central Pay
Commission i.e., 8th CPC, so that the Pay, Allowances and Pensionary benefits
of Central Govt. Employees will be revised with effect from 01-01-2021.
10. Taking into consideration all the above
demands and issues which are agitating the minds of 32 lakhs Central Govt.
Employees and 33 lakhs Central Govt. Civilian pensioners, this 26th National
Conference of Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers,
resolve to organise following agitational programmes for realisation of the
long pending 10 points charter of demands submitted to Government by
Confederation. (copy of the charter of demands enclosed).
1. Demands Day in March 2020.
2. Intensive Campaign among employees in the
month of April, 2020.
3. One day mass dharna in the month of May
4. National Convention of Central Govt.
Employees in the month of August, 2020.
5. Massive Parliament March in the month of
11. As other Central Government Employees
organisations and All India State Government Employees Federation are also
organising similar programmes, this National Conference authorises the National
Secretariat of the Confederation to keep in touch with like-minded
organisations and explore the possibility of organising united action
programmes on Minimum agreed demands, with “Scrap NPS and Restore OPS” as the
Revised 10 points charter of the
