Sub: - Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
We have gone through the Terms of Reference of 7th Central Pay Commission approved and notified by the Government on 28.02.2014. We find that the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government is at in many respects to the Draft Terms of Reference the Staff Side had submitted to you on 25.10.2013 after in-house discussion on 24.10.2013.
At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24.10.2013, it was agreed that the Government would consider our suggestions in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of the Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter.
We regret to inform you that no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the Official Side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference. We find that the Government has rejected the suggestions of Staff side for either taking a in the matter of Interim Relief, of DA, representation of labour nominee in the Commission itself, inclusion of the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the purview of the 7th CPC, bringing parity in pension between the past and present pensioners, covering the appointed on or after 01.01.2004 within the ambit of the , date of effect, settlement of the pending items in the National Anomaly Committee etc. or referring those issues to the Commission itself for an Interim Report.
Besides, we are to state that the existing Productivity Linked (PLB) Scheme, being a bilateral agreement, cannot be subjected to scrutiny and examination by the 7th CPC.
We, therefore request you to kindly convene a meeting of the of (JCM) to discuss the issue, so as to make amendments to the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government arbitrarily.

International Women’s Day, initially called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated every year on March 8. In 1908 in New York 15,000 women marched through the city demanding shorter work hours, better pay, voting rights and an end to child labour. The owner of the factory where these women were working, trying to avoid publicity of their action, closed them in the factory. Unfortunately, fire broke up and 129 women died. To commemorate this day, in 1910 Socialist International in Copenhagen established International Woman's Day. Celebrate Women’s Day by wishing her, greeting her, and making her feel how important and special she is. Send her your warmest greetings and wishes and make her Women’s Day bright

VOTE OUT NEO-LIBERAL GLOBALISATION POLICIES. VOTE FOR ALTERNATIVE PRO-PEOPLE, PRO-WORKING CLASS POLICIES
VOTE OUT NEO-LIBERAL GLOBALISATION POLICIES.
VOTE FOR ALTERNATIVE PRO-PEOPLE, PRO-WORKING CLASS POLICIES
Once again our country is going for a general election. is the biggest democratic country in the world and general election is an opportunity to every citizen to express their opinion about the future Government and also future of our country.
We, the Central Government including Postal employees are well aware of the fact that future of the Central and various Central Government departments depends upon the policy of the Central Government. As we are working directly under the Central Government, the policies are first experimented on us. Upto 1991, the policy of the Government was to strengthen and expand the Central services and Public sector. Based on this policy more and more offices were opened and employees are recruited and appointed to fill up vacant posts and also newly created posts. The total number of Central Government employees went upto 40 lakhs.
From 1991 onwards, the policy of the Government changed and started implementing the neo-liberal globalisation policies. Ban on filling up of posts and creation of new posts was imposed. The process of converting Government departments into started with the hidden agenda of ultimate privatization. Attack came on the Telecom department first, and it is converted into three Corporations. Expenditure reforms committee under the Finance Secretary Geetha Krishnan was constituted and it recommended sweeping changes in all Central Government departments in tune with the liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation (LPG) policies of the Government. Government started outsourcing of the Government functions and many small departments were closed and many are in the verge of closure. Downsizing has reached its peak and thousands of posts are abolished. Casual and Contract worker employment has become the order of the day and in some departments the number of casual/ exceeded the number of regular employees.
When the NDA government came to power defeating the Congress government, employees were under the impression that the above policies of earlier government will be changed. But to their dismay, the also persued the same policies. A separate portfolio for disinvestment was created and a Cabinet Minister is appointed as incharge of the Disinvestment Ministry. Downsizing, outsourcing, contractorisation and privatisation continued unabated. Attack on the Central Government departments and employees continued. Finally New called Contributory Pension Scheme was also introduced.
UPA Government led by Congress which again came to power continued the same policy more vigourously. The Pension Privatisation bill called PFRDA Bill was introduced in the Parliament with the help of main opposition party, BJP and again when the bill was passed both the NDA and UPA voted in favour of the bill. Only left parties opposed the bill. Regarding the main demands of the Central Government employees also the attitude of both the Governments was negative. Only due to the continuous struggle conducted by Confederation and NFPE some improvements could be achieved. In Postal, entire employees went on 14 days strike in 2000 but the then NDA Government constituted a committee of group of ministers under the then Home Minister and rejected all the demands. Now also the UPA government rejected all our main demands.
Both the governments tried to privatise postal sector by amending Indian Post Office Act for granting licence to private courier services. The move to close down 9797 post offices and 300 RMS offices were defeated only because of the united resistance of the Postal employees. The attitude of both the Government towards departmentalisation of Gramin Dak Sevak was totally negative. Even after the pronouncement of Supreme Court that GDS are Civil Servants the government is not ready to grant Civil Servant status to GDS.
From the above we can understand that future of the Central Government employees including Postal employees depends upon the policies of the Government. Without changing the policy, we cannot except any positive action from Government. Hence the coming general election is very crucial to us. From our past experience we should recognise our friends and foes. We have to defeat the anti -people, anti- neo liberal policies at any cost. NFPE calls upon the entire Postal employees to vote out the Neo Liberal Globalisation Policies and to vote for an alternative pro-people, pro-working class policies.
