CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
1st Floor, North Avenue PO Building, New Delhi – 110001

 

WITHDRAW CONTRIBUTORY PENSION SCHEME
 


SCRAP PFRDA BILL


PFRDA BILL LISTED IN THE AGENDA OF THE CURRENT SESSION OF THE PARLIAMENT

CONFEDERATION CALLS UPON THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TO ORGANIZE TWO HOURS WALK-OUT PROGRAMME ON THE DAY WHEN THE BILL IS
TAKEN UP FOR DISCUSSION
IN PARLIAMENT


As you are aware, Central Government is going ahead with their agenda on pension privatization. The controversial PFRDA Bill (Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority Bill) is listed as an agenda item for the current Parliament session. The bill may be taken up for discussion in Parliament on any day. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has opposed the Contributory Pension Scheme and also the PFRDA Bill from the very beginning.

We have conducted so many agitational programmes including strike. The left parties in the parliament have also strongly opposed the Bill. Inspite of the opposition from employees (both Central Government and State Government Employees & Teachers) and also from left political parties, the Central Government is not ready to withdraw the contributory Pension scheme or to scrap the PFRDA Bill.

The National Secretariat of the Confederation has viewed the move of the Government with grave concern and decided to call upon the entirety of the Central Government Employees & Workers to organize mass protest demonstration in front of all offices throughout the country after walking out from offices for two hours, on the day when the bill is taken up for discussion in Parliament or on the next day if information is received late.

All India office bearers, State level COCs and other COCs are requested to make the two hours walk out programme a grand success.

GoM on Workers' Demand
Government has set up a Group of four Ministers led by Shri A.K. Antony to discuss the workers' demands with the United front of trade unions. 
Two meetings of the Group of Ministers (GoM) were held on 18.02.2013 and 22.05.2013 in which the ten point Charter of Demand of the trade unions were discussed. The discussions remained inconclusive and it was decided that the issues/demands will be considered by the Group of Ministers themselves before further discussions with the Central Trade Unions representatives. As such, no final recommendation has been given by the GoM. 
This information was given by Minister of State for Labour & Employment Shri Kodikunnil Suresh in the Lok Sabha today in reply to a written question.

Under new project, select head post offices will have ATMs, offer internet and mobile banking

Postal customers may soon be able to access their savings bank account in any post office in the city.
The department of posts is putting in place core banking solutions (CBS) at four of its head post offices in Chennai, and the process is expected to be completed by September. This means these post offices will become like banks and offer a range of services.

The head post offices on Anna Road and in T. Nagar, Mylapore and Tambaram will soon be networked via CBS, which is one of the postal department’s flagship projects.'

At present, customers who have postal savings accounts have to go to the post office where their account is, to carry out any transaction. They also have to wait in long queues to withdraw cash or to get their monthly pensions.

But once CBS is implemented, customers can go to any post office covered under the system and carry out transactions. The project also envisages installing ATMs at these four post offices by October, so that their 2.5 lakh account-holders will be able to access their accounts at the swipe of a card.Customers who have invested in savings 
 certificates too, can encash them using CBS.

Officials of the postal department said they had tied up with Infosys to eventually implement CBS in 110 post offices across the city and its suburbs. Currently, software testing for the project is in progress.

Welcoming the move, 70-year-old D. Sriraman, a resident of Villivakkam, said this would benefit several people who now spend at least half an hour just to withdraw cash.  

The CBS project will be rolled out in all post offices over the next two years in a phased manner. Services offered will include internet banking, mobile banking and mobile transfer of money. The department also is mulling over a proposal to integrate other postal services with CBS.

Postmaster general, Chennai city region, Mervin Alexander said there are nearly 3.3 crore savings account-holders in the region. All postal employees are now being given extensive training in CBS, he added.
