PRESS STATEMENT.
Budget 2015-16.


The Budget of Modi Government for the year 2015-16 presented today to the Parliament by the Finance Minister, Shri. Arun Jaitley belied all expectations of the poor people who placed their faith in the BJP in the last general elections.   It is without doubt an anti-poor and pro-rich Budget.  The Corporate Tax has been slashed to please the giant multinational Corporate houses, who really are the rulers in most of the Countries of the world, including ours.  The Government has foregone about 8300 crores of direct tax revenue.  The burden has been put on to the shoulders of the common working people in the form of indirect taxes to the extent of more than 23000 crores mostly coming from the increased service tax kitty.

Except raising the transport allowance exemption from Rs. 800 to Rs. 1600 p.m which only benefits the higher segment of tax payers among the salaried class, no concession or tax reduction has been given to the wage earners. 

By not raising the non-taxable maximum which was needed in view of the high level of inflation, Modi Government has not only squeezed the middle class but also amassed more tax revenue from those class of wage earners, who get dearness compensation.  In the process Government continue to ignore several judgements to exempt DA from taxation as DA is considered as a receipt, compensatory in nature. The salaried class of tax payers was constantly demanding the re- introduction of deduction under section 16(1) of the I.T. Act which was in vogue years back.  While retaining such concessession and deduction to all other segment of tax payers, the Government continue to penalise wage earners who are really the honest tax payers.

Allocation for every social welfare schemes which targets the deprived section of the society has been reduced in percentage terms, the largest reduction being in the ICDS programme.  The tax concessions to the rich and corporate houses are of the order of 5.89 lakh crores. This apart, the wealth tax has been fully abolished.

The Budget 2015-16 has unambiguously declared the intention of the Modi Government to pursue the neo- liberal economic policies vigorously. 

K.K.N.Kutty
President.

EDITORIAL - DAK JAGRITI - MARCH 2015.

CADRE RESTRUCTURING AGREEMENT OF GROUP ‘C’ EMPLOYEES.DEPARTMENT’S DELAYING TACTICS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED.
POSTAL JCA SHOULD NOT FAIL IN ITS RESPONSIBILITY.

Cadre Restructuring agreement of the Group ‘C’ employees of the Department of Posts was signed by both the official side and staff side on 28.04.2014 after protracted discussions and hard-bargaining by the leadership of NFPE & FNPO. By 30.04.2015 first anniversary of the signing of the agreement will be over. Even after a lapse of nine months the proposal is still pending in the Postal Directorate. In all other departments like Railways, Income Tax, Central Secretariat etc. cadre restructuring is already approved by Government and implemented. Employees got the benefits months back. Postal JCA has included this demand in its charter of demands. The reply given by the Department is really shocking and shameful. After keeping the file in the cold-storage for ten months now the Postal Board says it want six months more time to process the proposal for submission to the DOP&T. Reply given by the Department in the minutes of the strike charter discussion is reproduced below:

“The examination of proposals regarding Cadre Restructuring will be expedited and will be sent to DOP&T within specified period as decided in the JCM meeting (i.e six month from 16.12.2014)”

So, as per the reply, for processing the proposal, the Directorate will take time upto 30.06.2015 i.e. fourteen months from the date of signing of the agreement. It is really shameful. After processing, the proposal is to be submitted to DOP&T for approval. If Postal Board can take 14 months for processing, DOP&T will definitely take minimum six months. After that approval of Finance and Law Ministry’s are to be obtained. Thus minimum it will take one more year from 30.06.2015. By that time 7th CPC report will be submitted and implemented by Government. Once 7th CPC recommendations are implemented the entire cadre Restructuring Agreement signed after 6th CPC report will become infructuous and Government will say fresh cadre Restructuring Committee is to be constituted after the 7th CPC. That means all the effort made by the Postal Federations will go in vain. This should not be allowed to happen under any circumstances. Postal JCA Leaders should rise upto the occasion.

All of us know that the cadre Restructuring agreement is a product of continuous struggle conducted by Postal JCA right from 2010 onwards. Postal Board adopted delaying tactics from the very beginning and everytime we countered it with serious agitations including serving of indefinite strike notice and mobilisation of the workers, which compelled the Postal Board to sign the agreement on 28.04.2014. If the agreement is implemented, the promotional chances of Group ‘C’ employees will increase three fold (three times). Further on completion of two years service in the third promotional scale they will get one more promotion i.e. fourth promotion. Every Group ‘C’ employee will be benefited and the long wait for getting more promotional opportunities will be over.

In the above circumstances, we cannot accept the stand taken by the Postal Board in the JCM Departmental council meeting on 16.12.2014 and also in the strike Charter discussion meeting on 05.02.2015. 6th & 7thCentral Pay  Commissions are given only 18 months time by the Government for examining the wages and service conditions and giving recommendations regarding 30 lakhs of Central Govt. employees and about 20 lakhs Defence personnel which includes more than 60 departments and hundreds of various cadres and Pay Commissions are completing their work within the specified time. Here in the Postal department for processing an agreement signed by the Department and staff side 14 months time is being taken, that too not for final orders, but for submitting the proposal to DOP&T!!!. It is an insult to the entire employees who are eagerly waiting for orders. Their hope and aspirations cannot be allowed to be shattered, because of the indifferent attitude of the Postal Board.

Postal JCA leaders should take a firm and uncompromising stand and should demand implementation of the cadre restructuring proposals (not merely processing for submission to DOP&T) before 30.04.2015. Orders are to be issued before 30.04.2015. Otherwise we should go for indefinite strike as already decided by Postal JCA.

It is an agreement signed by the Department and it should not be allowed to lapse automatically after 7th CPC finalizing its report. DOP&T will not allow any cadre restructuring Committee Report constituted after 6th CPC to be implemented after 7th CPC recommendations. Once 7th CPC recommendations are submitted to Government, DOP&T will simply reject the agreement and advise Postal Board to reconstitute another Cadre Restructuring committee after implementation of 7th CPC recommendations. So let us understand the seriousness of the situation and rise upto the occasion.

SMALL SAVINGS SCHEME AT A GLANCE.

GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS – REVISION OF WAGES AND SERVICE CONDITIONS SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN 7TH CPC

WE DON’T WANT SEPARATE COMMITTEE

JOIN INDEFINITE STRIKE FROM 2015 MAY 6TH

In the discussion held on 05.02.2015 with the Postal Joint Council of Action (NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) and NUGDS), Secretary, Department of Posts has assured that the demand for inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC will again be referred to the Government by the Postal Board. If all the Postal Federations and Unions/Associations join together and go for an indefinite strike from May 6th as decided by the PJCA, Government will be compelled to include GDS under 7th CPC.

But the recognised GDS Union is demanding separate committee and conducting separate strike, breaking the unity of five lakhs Postal employees. Separate strike for a separate committee will weaken the demand for grant of civil servant status to GDS and will help the Government only.

When NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE), NUGDS, Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers, JCM National Council staff side including Railways & Defence are demanding inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC, why recognised GDS Union alone is demanding separate committee and conducting separate strike. Gramin Dak Sevaks should understand the hidden agenda of the recognised GDS union and defeat the demand for separate Committee.

All Gramin Dak Sevaks are requested to join the joint indefinite strike of Postal Joint Council of Action (NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) & NUGDS) from 2015 May 6th. Our demand is inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC and grant of civil servant status. We don’t want a separate committee..

CIRCULAR
To
            All General Secretaries /All India Office Bearers
Circle Secretaries/Divisional and Branch Secretaries.

Comrades,

            Staff Side PJCA meeting was held at NFPE Office, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110 001 on 04th February,2015 under the Presidentship of Com. D. Theagarajan Secretary General FNPO. All General Secretaries of NFPE, FNPO and GDS Unions participated in the meeting.

            The following decisions were taken in the meeting:

1.         Formation of PJCA at all Circles:

            Reviewed the position of formation of Circle JCA. PJCA has been formed in some Circles and in some circles it is functioning well. The Circles in which the PJCA is not functioning, it should be formed by the respective CHQ leaders..All Circle Secretaries should also take it seriously and inform the CHQ and Federation after formation. This work should be completed before 15th February, 2015.

2.         Strategy was decided for the meeting to be held with Secretary Post at Dak Bhawan , New Delhi on 05.02.2015.


MEETING OF PJCA  LEADERS WITH SECRETARY POST

            Meeting of PJCA leaders was held with Secretary (Post) and other higher officers of Postal Board. Though Secretary (Post) gave positive assurances on most of the issues and also assured that Deptt. Is not going to implement recommendations of Task Force Committee report and there will be no corporatization and Privatization of Deptt. and before implementation of any new scheme it will be discussed with unions and after getting the consent of unions it will be implemented. Secretary (Post) also agreed to refer again the case of GDS wage revision and other service conditions to Government of India for inclusion in the 7th CPC. She also assured to finalize the Cadre restructuring proposal of all Cadres before 30th April-2015.

            Though Secretary (Post) has given many of the positive assurances but keeping in mind the style of functioning and political and economic policies of Central Government we cannot believe as they are implementing all Globlization   and privatization policies very intensively in all the sectors and mostly employees of all sectors are agitated and moving on path of agitation.

            Therefore, we appeal to all Leaders and entire rank and file to get ready for struggle and observe the following programme of action in a phased manner on 40 points Charter of Demand:

1,         Formation of JCA at all levels before 15th February, 2015.
