Dear Comrades,




The CHQ greets ten lakhs of Central Government employees who went on one day strike on 12-12-12 in pursuance of the 15 point charter of demands that includes setting up of 7th CPC & merger of 50% DA with pay for all purposes, withdrawal of PFRDA bill and universal application of statutory pension to all government employees, regularisation of casual/contingent/daily rated workers, proper functioning of JCM scheme etc.


The Central government employees across the country responded in a magnificent manner to the call given by the Confederation of Central Government employees and Workers for one day strike.  


The Press Statement issued by Confederation is enclosed.




Compared to other departments, the strike in our department was not that magnificent, but the strike has showed that the movement is capable of recovery after the massive victimisation in the aftermath of the mass casual leave on 8th April 2010. More units have joined the strike.


The best strike was in Raipur, Chhatisgarh and Guwahati, Assam where all the employees belonging the Category III and Category II in A&E office enmasse joined the strike.


Kerala, where hundreds of comrades undergo multiple victimisations, has shown remarkable recovery and more than 60 % of the members participated in the strike.


In Mumbai, the strike was total in AG Commercial Audit and MAB-I. In A&E more than 70% participated in strike – the participation of Cat II being 90%. In Audit, the strike was nearly 50%.


Kolkata units did a great job in a very trying situation. The strike was total in ERly Audit, P&T Audit and MAB II and Scientific Audit. In AG offices, the strike was nearly 60%.


In Chennai, the strike was partial in both Audit & Accounts.


In Nagpur, strike was nearly 50% in A&E office and P&T Audit Office.


Executive Committee members went on strike in DGACR, Delhi.


In Jaipur, Haryana, Shimla and Hyderabad only lunch hour demonstrations were held.


In Bhubaneswar, Odisha, it is reported that nearly 85% were absent as they proceeded on leave from 10th December 2012 onwards – three day strike against the call of one day strike! Others held a demonstration on 12-12-12!


CHQ extends its warm greetings to the leaders, activists and members of these Units for the temerity in standing up and moving forward overcoming the fear psychosis through conscious decisions and sustained and concerted efforts.


The Lesson

'Obstacles can't stop you,

Problems can't stop you,

Most of all

Other people can't stop you

The only one who stops you

is Yourself.'


With greetings,

Yours fraternally




Secretary General









Draft Reply to the Memo


Pr AG/AG/PDA/Director of Audit





I am to invite your kind attention to the memo vide No………………………………………. dated……. on my participation in the one day strike on 12-12-12.


The Central Govt employees had represented to the Govt for revising the pay structure in every five years as is done in every other organised sector in the country, by constituting the 7th CPC with effect from 1.1.2011. As the DA has crossed 50%, the employees also represented that the DA upto 50% be merged with Pay for all purposes.


The introduction of PFRDA bill has put big question mark on the statutory pension to the existing employees and pensioners. The employees were consistently pleading for the withdrawal of PFRDA bill and NPS, bringing all the employees under statutory pension scheme.


The scheme of Joint Consultative Machinery and Compulsory Arbitration, inaugurated in 1966 with avowed objective of ameliorating the grievances of employees through discussion, has ceased to function for the last two decades, piling up the grievances of employees.


Similarly, the discrimination vis-à-vis railways in the conditionalities on compassionate ground appointment, non enhancement of bonus ceiling etc are agitating the employees for long.


Demanding resolution of the justified demands, the Confederation of Central Govt employees called for one day strike on 12-12-12. The call was endorsed by All India Audit & Accounts Association ANDI being a primary member, participated in the strike.


I am sure you will appreciate the genuineness of the demands. It is therefore requested that a lenient view may kindly be taken on my participation in the strike on 12-12-12.


Thanking you,

Yours faithfully

Dated: 12th December, 2012 


Nearly Ten lakhs Central Government employees took part in the one day token strike today, the 12th December, 2012 on the call of the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers, paralyzing the governmental functions in various departments throughout the country.  The strike was to protest against the continued efforts of the Government to enact the PFRDA Bill, whereby the existing defined benefit pension of Government employees is sought to be converted into a defined contributory pension scheme.  Every reason, the Government advanced at the time of the introduction of the new scheme is found to be incorrect and misleading by the Experts Committee set up by the Government itself.


Besides, the employees had been demanding wage revision by setting up the 7th Central Pay Commission, filling up large number of vacant posts, regularization of the service of Grameen Dak Sewaks/Casual/daily-rated workers, revival of the negotiating machinery i.e. JCM, removal of restrictions on compassionate appointments, introduction of Public Distribution system to arrest the ever increasing prices of essential commodities, stoppage of outsourcing, contractorisation, privatization etc.  


As per the report received the strike was total in Assam, Tripura, West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Kerala, Chattisgarh, Jharkhand and beyond 80% in Maharashtra, Karnataka, U.P. Bihar, and about 60% in other States.  The Postal, Income tax, Groundwater Board departments came to a grinding halt in all States,  as the offices could not be opened at all. In Income tax Department, the promotee officers also joined the strike paving way of a complete closure.  Many establishments of Atomic Energy, Printing and Stationery, Defence accounts, Medical Depots, Audit and Accounts  Departments, Civil Accounts, CGHS, Indian Bureau of Mines, Directorate of Marketing Inspection, Geological Survey of India, Archaeological  and Botanical Survey of India etc. remained closed.  


The organizers of the Strike have asserted that they will make the general strike of workers slated for 20th and 21st February, 2013 a grand success by enlisting participation of  all sections of the Central Government employees.  


The Confederation will strive to organize an indefinite strike in pursuance of the 15 point charter of demands in 2013 if no settlement is brought about by the Government by then.
