Dear Comrades,

Once bitten, twice shy – goes the saying. But it does not hold good
here. This time UPA-II government is confident of getting the Pension
Fund Regulatory & Development Authority (PFRDA) bill adopted in the

The PFRDA bill was first introduced by the UPA-I in 2004. The Left
Parties that was supporting the Government from outside made it clear
to the government that they will vote against the bill. Being a money
bill, a defeat on the PFRDA bill in the Lok Sabha will force the
government to resign and go for fresh mandate. Not sure of the BJP
support, then, the government was compelled to keep the bill in the
cold storage.

But not now. The Government does not require the left support and the
left parties have got much less representation in the Parliament. And
the main opposition party has shown its true colour (It is on the eve
of the NDA regime, ie on 31st Dec 2003, the PRRDA came into existence
through an ordinance).

When the bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha again on 24th March
2011, Com Basudev Acharya of CPI-M opposed the bill and wanted a
division (ie voting). It clearly showed where the ruling parties and
the main opposition party are – both voted for the bill and only 40
odd MPs voted against the introduction of the bill. It has been
introduced and once again it has been referred to subject committee of
the Parliament before it comes back for final adoption.

Deduction (10% of Pay+ DA) is being effected from the salary of lakhs
of employees who have joined service on or after 1.1.2004 without any
law permitting it and right till this date the amount is deposited
either with SBI or LIC with 5% of total deposit invested in the stock
market. This money, once the PFRDA bill becomes an act, will be in the
hands of private players who in turn will use it for gambling in the
(stock/share) market.

Your money- profit theirs; and the loss – it will be yours. There
will no fixed returns on your retirement. It could vary – from fund
operator/manager to fund operator/manager (damager!) and further month
to month even with the same fund manager.

To day if we want to save our pension and our money being gobbled up
by desi and videsi (both anti-national) corporate bodies we have to
unite ourselves and fight against this – exposing both the ruling
dispensation and the main opposition both of whom are helping the loot
of the worker's money by transnational corporations.

All out campaign to educate the employees about the dangers on new
pension scheme may be undertaken by each unit with utmost seriousness.

The Confederation has given a call to hold lunch hour meeting in all
offices on 20th April 2011 to explain the 14 point charter of demands.
All the units should make the programme a success by mobilising
employees and evolving own strategies to mobilise and educate the
employees for a sustained struggle.


All India Association Day may be observed by all units by hoisting
the Association flag and holding meetings. The issues confronting the
employees, workers and the people at large may be taken to each and
every employee, exhorting them to be prepared for a sustained

Where 15th April is a holiday, the day may be observed the next working day.

The vindictiveness of CAG administration on the aftermath of Mass
Casual leave, the continued vicitimisation of Association leaders and
activists at various stations and denial of functional facility by the
administration, acute shortage of manpower, dilution of auditing and
accounting functions etc are to be focused along with issues such as
price rise, PFRDA Bill, merger of DA with Pay for all purposes and
revision of wages of Central government employees with effect from 1st
January 2011. The Confederation charter (reproduced elsewhere) should
be made the talking point.

Report on the observance of the Association day may be mailed or
posted with out fail.


Some units have reported that 12th April 2011 is a holiday being Ram
Navami. Such Units may observe the programme on the next working day.

With regards
Yours fraternally,

Secretary General
