IMPORTANT GOVT ORDER
A MAJOR VICTORY OF THE STRUGGLE OF 
CENTRAL GOVT EMPLOYEES:
             National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees (NFAERER) along with other Central Government Employees under the banner of Confederation of Central Govt Employees & Workers have been continuously fighting against pension reforms implemented by Govt in tune with the neo-liberal policies and demanding SCRAPPING OF THE NEW PENSION SYSTEM (NPS). With out prejudice to our demand to scrap the new Pension Schme, we have been demanding that those employees who are covered by NPS should be eligible for payment of Death cum Retirement Gratuity (DCRG) and Family Pension and also Govt guaranteed Minimum Pension and Compensation for price rise (Dearness Relief). 
 
             Now the Govt has conceded one of our demand by  issuing  orders to extend the benefit of Gratuity to the Employees under NPS. Further the Cabinet has decided to constitute a committee for streamlining the implementation of NPS. We shall present the remaining issues before that Committee also. Scrapping of NPS is one of the main demand of 2016 September 2nd General Strike also.
