AN EARNEST APPEAL 

Though the National media had been persistently distorting the issues connected with the farm enactments that led to the biggest ever agitation of the Indian farmers in recent times, the stir that began two months back had been gaining momentum every day.  The Government characterised the movement as anti-national, backed by the terrorist outfits etc. and exhorted the peopleof the need to halt the ill-advised movement, but  every segment of the society came forward to express concern, support the movement and express the  need for a fruitful dialogue.  The tractor rally organised jointly by several Kisan organisations being unprecedented caught the attention of the Indian people though very many attempts were made to tarnish the image of the leaders of the movement as also the movement itself.  No doubt many in the country felt that Republic day being the most solemn and important day of the Nation, what was stage managed at the Red Fort ought not have happened.  The agitation caught the attention of the world media and there had been innumerable comments from all over the world of the need to address the issue with a view to reach a settlement.  The abject surrender of the Indian Press and the so called free channels to the ruling dispensation was a pathetic sight reminding of the emergency days. The famous comment of Shri L.K. Advani about the Indian Press in those days that they decided to crawl when asked to bend came vividly to one’s mind.    Democracy as we all know can survive as a form of governance only when it is ensured that its dominant pillar, the media is really free, fearless and impartial.

          Despite the untold repression and imposition of UAPA on many leaders the farmers movement could not be cowed down.  Every trick in the book of chicanery was employed but the farmers stood firm, unflinching, scorning at the powers in governance; determined in their pursuit to victory.  Had there been a micro-part of the courage and conviction demonstrated by the farmers, the Central Govt. employees could have written a glorious page of struggle when the promise held out to them in 2016 was not only honoured but discarded with disdain by the Government.  Our weakness, amply demonstrated by our inaction naturally must have emboldened the Government to take away the dearness compensation in April, 2020 when the employees wanted it most. 

The sale of National Assets, commenced decades back has continues unabated.  The 2021 Budget has proposed to sell out the most profitable public enterprise, the Life Insurance Corporation of India. The sale is not for any strategic reason or advantage but only to reduce the fiscal deficit to comply with the terms imposed by the world lending agencies when the country adopted the neo-liberal economic policies. Even during the pandemic days, when the whole of the population suffered immeasurably, when all economic activities came to a grinding halt,  the increase registered in the wealth of 100  Indian millionaires was of the order of Rs. 12.97,822 Crores. According to the Oxfam report, a worker in the unorganised sector will take 10000 years to earn the income generated by  Mukesh Ambani in an hour. During this period the corporate tax was reduced to 22% from. 34.61%.  India thus joined into the privileged club of the very few countries, where the corporate taxes are the lowest.   The concessions extended to the Corporates cost the exchequer 1.45 laksh crore in tax revenue this year. The corporate taxes as a share of GDP came down from 3.5% to 2.2%, whereas the indirect taxes which affects every Indian citizen including the poorest of the poor rose to 5.1% of GDP in 2020-01. In 2020-21 It is expected that the privatisation of  Bharat Petroleum, Air India, Shipping corporation, IDBI, Container Corporation, IDBI, BEML. Pawan Hans, Neelpal Ispat Nigam etc. would be completed. 

The greatest impediment the farmers face today in going ahead with their just and peaceful agitation is the financial stringency.  We feel it is the bounden duty of each and every citizen of the country to help them out to win the war; help them financially by collecting funds and donating it; extend the solidarity and support by organising demonstrative actions and do whatever that is needed to be done.  We, therefore, appeal our affiliates, State COCs, all friends and admirers of the farmers movement to collect funds and remit the same to their respective CHQs who will remit to Confederation HQ. Confederation HQ will donate to the Farmers Organizations. 

With greetings,

                                                                                        Yours fraternally,                             

                                                           R.N. PARASAR

                                                            Secretary General.

MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES & PENSIONS

FAMILY PENSIONS CEILING ENHANCED FROM RS 45,000 TO 1,25,000 PER MONTH:

 DR JITENDRA SINGH

Posted On: 12 FEB 2021 3:32PM by PIB Delhi 

Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr.Jitendra Singh said that in a far reaching reform regarding family pensions the upper ceiling has been raised from Rs 45,000 to Rs 1,25,000 per month. He said, the move will bring “Ease of Living” for the family members of the deceased employees and would provide adequate financial security to them. The Minister said that the Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare (DoPPW) has issued clarification on the amount admissible in case a child is eligible to draw two family pensions after death of his /her parents. Dr Jitendra Singh said that the amount of both the family pensions will now be restricted to Rs 1,25,000 per month, which is more than two and half times higher than the earlier limit.

In accordance with sub-rule (11) of rule 54 of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules 1972, in case both wife and husband are Government servants and are governed by the provisions of that rule, on their death, the surviving child is eligible for two family pensions in respect of the deceased parents. Earlier instructions laid down that the total amountof two familypensions in such cases, shall not exceed to Rs 45,000/- per month andRs 27,000/- per month which were determined at the rate of 50% and 30%, respectively taking into account of the highest pay of Rs. 90,000/- as per 6th CPC recommendations.  

Since the highest pay has been revised to Rs. 2,50,000 per month after the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, therefore the amount prescribed in Rule 54(11) of CCS (Pension) Rules has also been revised to Rs 1,25,000/- per month being 50% of Rs.2,50,000/- and   Rs 75000/- per month being 30% of Rs. 2,50,000/-.

The above clarification has been issued on the references received from various Ministry /Department. As per the existing rule, if parents are Government servants and one of the them dies while in service or after retirement, the family pension in respect of the deceased shall become payable to the surviving spouse and in the event of the death of the spouse, the surviving child shall be granted the two family pensions in respect of the deceased parents subject to fulfillment of other eligibility conditions.

केन्‍द्रीय सिविल सेवा (पेंशननियमन 1972 के  नियम 54 के उपनियम 11 के अनुरूपयदि पति और पत्‍नी दोनों ही सरकारी सेवा में हैं और इस नियम के तहत आते हैंतो उनकी मौत की स्थिति में उनका जीवित बच्‍चा अपने माता-पिता की दो फैमिली पेंशन पाने के योग्‍य होगा। इससे पहले के निर्देशों में तय किया गया था कि ऐसे मामलों में दो फैमिली पेंशन की कुल राशि 45,000 रुपये प्रतिमाह और 27,000 रुपये प्रतिमाहयानी क्रमश: 50 प्रतिशत और 30 प्रतिशत की दर से अधिक नहीं होगी। यह दर छठे वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों के अनुरूप 90,000 रुपये केअधिकतम वेतन के संदर्भ में तय की गई थी।

अब ज‍बकि 7वें वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों के अनुसार अधिकतम वेतन बढ़कर 2,50,000रुपये प्रतिमाह हो गया है, तोकेन्‍द्रीय सिविल सेवा पेंशन के नियम 54 (11) के अनुसार यह राशि 2,50,000 रुपये का 50 प्रतिशत यानी 1,25,000 रुपये और 2,50,000 रुपये का 30 प्रतिशत यानी 75,000 रुपये तय की गई है।

यह स्‍पष्‍टीकरणविभिन्‍न मंत्रालयों/विभागों से प्राप्‍त संदर्भों के मामले में जारी किया गया है। मौजूदा नियमों के अनुसार यदि किसी बच्‍चे के माता-पिता सरकारी सेवा में हैं और उनमें से एक की सेवाकाल में मृत्‍यु हो जाती है या वह सेवानिवृत्‍त हो जाते हैं तो स्‍वर्गवासी होने वाले व्‍यक्ति की फैमिली पेंशन उसके जीवित साथी को दी जाएगी और यदि उस साथी की भी मौत हो जाती हैतो जीवित बच्‍चे कोअपनी योग्‍यता साबित करने के बादअपने स्‍वर्गवासी माता-पिता दोनों की फैमिली पेंशन अदा की जाएगी

13TH FEBRUARY

COM.S.K.VYASJI REMEMBRANCE DAY

COM. S. K. VYASJI, THE LEGENDARY LEADER OF THE CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS PASSED AWAY ON 13TH FEBRUARY, 2015.


Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General and President of the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers for forty years from 1967 to 2006. He was the President and Secretary General of All India Audit & Accounts Association for a long time.  He continued as the Advisor of the Confederation and also as the Secretary General of National Co-ordination Committee of Pensioners Association (NCCPA) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death.

    Com.Vyasji has led various struggles and strike actions of the Central Govt. Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first indefinite strike action of the Central Govt. employees after independence, in the year 1960. Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service.  He played an important role in rallying the Central Govt. employees along with the striking Railway employees in the year 1974.  He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and Standing Committee.  He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Govt. employees.  The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Govt. employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership.  Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers representing about 15 lakhs Central Govt. employees is in the forefront of the incessant struggle and strike actions organised by Indian Working Class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government.  Com. S. K. Vyasji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement in India.

               He is in our hearts!  His memories will be forever with us!  His long saga of struggle and sacrifice for the Central Govt. employees and pensioners will inspire the generations to come.

        We on behalf of Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers pay respectful tribute to Com.S.K.VyasJi  on his 6th Death anniversary .

                         Red Salute to Com. S. K. Vyasji,

Com. Vyasji Amar Rahe.
