At last as expected the Sword of Damocles has taken out by the Government. The last cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of Manmohan Singh stabbed in the back the entire Central Government Employees. While finalizing the terms of reference for Seventh Pay Commission UPA II Government asked the Justice AK Mathur Committee to examine the principles which should govern the structure of pension and other retirement benefits, including revision of pension in the case of employees who have retired prior to the date of effect of these recommendations, keeping in view that retirement benefits of all Central Government employees appointed on and after 01.01.2004 are covered by the New Pension Scheme (NPS).
It is nothing but the first step to snatch away the retirement benefits such as defined pension, Provident Fund, etc. What NFAEE & Confederation told is going to become reality. When the Staff side preparing proposal to reconsider the New Pension Scheme Government asked the Pay Commission to find a way to extend NPS to the employees joined prior to 01.01.2004 and even the pensioners. Though the government does not having power to take any policy decision on the eve of Lok Sabha Election directed the Pay Commission to take a decision which may have dire consequence to the entire government employees as well as the pensioners in the days to come.
So the days to come are for fight. Not just token action - the industrial action of entire force. No conciliation will protect the retirement benefit. Only the united industrial action could protect our retirement benefit. So be ready for a fight. 18 months given to the Pay Commission. So the same 18 months are before us to make ready the entire employees for a fight against the entire retrograde proposals likely to come in the future.
With fraternal Greetings
