Members of Women’s Committee

Dear Comrades,


            It is nearly one year since the Group of Ministers led by Shri. Rajnath Singh, Hon’ble Home Minister assured the leadership of NJCA that the grievances of the employees would addressed within four months by revisiting the minimum wage and fitment factor and also on allowances.

            The Committees’ setting up itself took nearly one month. Nobody, for sure, know whether any committee has been set up  on the issue of minimum wage and fitment factor. It is nearly two months since the Lavasa Committee submitted its report on allowances. The Govt is sitting pretty on it.

            Never in the past, since the 1st CPC, has happened this way – that the revised allowances are not paid along with revised pay. The Employees’ grievance on lowering the rates of allowances by the 7 CPC could have been separately dealt with after implementation of what has been recommended.

            The intention is quite clear – to deprive the Central Govt employees of the monetary benefit of revised allowances for more than a year.

            It is high time that we react to this betrayal by expressing our anger in a unique manner, massively.

            The Confederation of Central Govt Employees and Workers have given a call for forming HUMAN CHAIN ON 22ND JUNE 2017 in every centre.


            All our Units are requested to mobilise the membership for the HUMAN CHAIN and ensure their total involvement.

            The call for HUMAN CHAIN is to be observed under the banner of local COCs of Confederation. Where COC is not functional, our Units are requested to organise it ourselves. Our leaders may contact CG employees of other departments too. If none is available, then we may do it in front of our office.

            We may do intensive campaign and mobilise the entirety of personnel working in our offices.

            We also may request Units of All India Audit & Accounts Officers Association also to join the HUMAN CHAIN on 22nd June 2017.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally 
M. S. Raja
Secretary General
