Expected DA from January 2017


Expected DA from January 2017

Comrades,
The whole sale price index for the month of December has risen by 3.39%, which declined in past three months, this increase is due to manufacturing price increase (oil prices has increased), the food prices had in fact has come down in December 2016 .

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) was showing marginal decline from 278 points to 277 points in November 2016 , the DA stood at 4.76% as on November 2016, most likely the CPI may show increase of 1 point and may rise to 278 points in December 2016 or stay stable at 277 points.

Scenario I: If the CPI for the month of December 2016 is at 276 points(decrease on one point), the expected DA from January 2017 is likely at 2% (Total 4.97 %).

Scenario II: Even if the CPI for the month of December 2016 is at 277 points, the expected DA from January 2017 is likely at 3% (Total 5%).

Scenario III: If the CPI for the month of December 2016 is at 278 points, the expected DA from January 2017 is likely at 3% (Total 5.04 % ).
Comradely yours

GDS COMMITTEE REPORT
DEPARTMENT OF POST SOUGHT PERMISSION FROM ELECTION COMMISSION FOR PUBLISHING THE REPORT - DISCUSSION HELD WITH NFPE & FNPO - ASSURED TO PUBLISH THE REPORT IMMEDIATELY AFTER GETTING APPROVAL

INDEFINITE HUNGER FAST DEFERRED

Dear Comrades,
As you are aware, the GDS Committee headed by Shri Kamlesh Chandra, Retired Postal Board Member, has submitted its report to Government on 24th November 2016. Secretary, Posts, informed us that the report will be published only after getting approval of the Minister, Communications. Earlier, GDS Committee Report was published on the very same date of submission. 7th Pay Commission Report was also published immediately on submission to Government.

Protesting against the unjustified stand of the Department, NFPE & AIPEU-GDS conducted nationwide agitational programmes like protest demonstration, dharna etc. Finally we have given notice for indefinite hunger fast in front of the Directorate from 18.01.2017, by Secretary General, NFPE and all General Secretaries of affiliated Unions including AIPEU-GDS. After our hunger fast notice things started moving. Secretary, Department of Posts deputed a Senior Officer to the Minister's office to get the approval of the Minister. Minister granted permission to publish the Report with a condition that Election Commission’s approval should be obtained before publishing the Report, as Election Commission has already declared election to five State Assemblies.

On 16.01.2017, the Department called us for discussion with Member (Technology). In the discussion Member (T) informed that "a reference has been made to the Election Commission of India (ECI) and a response is expected shortly". We recorded our strong protest against the unjustified delay in publishing the report. The Member (T) expressed "the difficulty in hosting the report in the Department’s website on account of the enforcement of the Model Code of Conduct in view of assembly elections having been announce in five states". The appeal given by the Department to call off the indefinite hunger fast is published below.

In view of the above, the Federal Secretariat of NFPE and AIPEU-GDS has reviewed the situation based on the written assurance given by the Department and has decided to postpone the indefinite hunger fast to be commenced from 18th January 2017. Even if we go on indefinite fast or strike, Department cannot publish it without the permission of Election Commission, as the Department has already submitted it to Election Commission for permission.

We hope that the Election Commission will grant permission shortly to publish the Report.
NFPE & AIPEU-GDS has made sincere effort for compelling the Department to publish the GDS Committee Report and conducted nationwide agitational programmes. It is only because of our agitational programmes and indefinite hunger faster notice, the Department was compelled to get permission and also submitted it for Election Commission’s approval.

NFPE & AIPEU-GDS always stand with the three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks and we assure our GDS employees that if GDS Committee Report is against the interest of the GDS NFPE & AIPEU-GDS will declare serious agitational programmes including strike.
Fraternally yours,
R. N. Parashar Secretary General, NFPE / P. Panduranga Rao General Secretary, AIPEU-GDS

NJCA MEETING - 17th January 2017, NO CONSENSUS ON REVIVAL OF DEFERRED INDEFINITE STRIKE


NJCA MEETING - 17th January 2017, NO CONSENSUS ON REVIVAL OF DEFERRED INDEFINITE STRIKE

"No doubt, our strike will have a great impact in settling the demands and also in exposing the powers-that-be who betrayed the cause of 33 lakhs Central Govt Employees and 34 lakhs Pensioners.

Somebody should come forward to protest and also, if necessary, to suffer and Confederation is ready for it. Let Confederation lead and others follow."

NJCA MEETING - 17th January 2017
NJCA MEETING
NO CONSENSUS ON REVIVAL OF DEFERRED INDEFINITE STRIKE

Much awaited meeting of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) was held on 17th January 2017 at National Council (JCM) Staff-side office at New Delhi. Leaders of Railways, Defence, Postal and Confederation attended. Detailed discussions were held on the developments that took place after the deferment of the indefinite strike of 11th July 2016 and also on the totally negative attitude of the Government towards the 7th Pay Commission related issues of the Central Government Employees & Pensioners, including increase in Minimum Pay, Fitment formula, Allowances, Pensioner's Option-I etc.

Unfortunately, there was no consensus regarding revival of the deferred indefinite strike. Hence no decision could be taken. Meeting ended with a decision to meet again after some days. In the meantime NJCA Chairman and Convener may try to meet the Cabinet Ministers who have given the assurances on 30th June 2016 to NJCA leaders.

As there is no immediate possibility for revival of the indefinite strike by NJCA, Confederation National Secretariat has decided to intensify the mobilization campaign and preparation for making the 16th March 2017 one day strike a grand success. All Affiliated Organizations and C-O-Cs are once again requested to make all –out efforts to ensure cent percent participation of employees in the strike. In addition to the campaign programme of National Secretariat members, each affiliated organization and C-O-Cs should chalk out their own separate campaign programme. Please give wide publicity through local print / electronic media and social media like whatsapp, facebook etc.

No doubt, our strike will have a great impact in settling the demands and also in exposing the powers-that-be who betrayed the cause of 33 lakhs Central Govt Employees and 34 lakhs Pensioners.

Somebody should come forward to protest and also, if necessary, to suffer and Confederation is ready for it.

Let Confederation lead and others follow.
