DA MERGER & INTERIM RELIEF- CONFEDERATION WRITES TO SECRETARY JCM STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS

 Central Headquarters 

1st floor, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110 001.



      Dated :  23.07.2014
Com. Shiv Gopal Misra,
Secretary,
Staff Side, National Council, JCM
13 C Feroze Shah Road,
New Delhi. 110 001.

Dear Comrade,

  Sub: Memorandum of Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.

            The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers places on record its appreciation over the efforts of the Staff Side,  JCM,  National Council in preparing and submitting the memorandum to the 7th Central Pay Commission, which has received the widest acceptance and admiration of the Central Government employees. Since the last date for submitting the Department-specific memorandum has been got extended by your efforts uptill 31st July, 2014, the first phase of our endeavour and interaction with the 7th CPC will come to a conclusion in a few days’ time.

       I have been directed by the National Secretariat of the Confederation which met on 17thJuly, 2014 to solicit your kind reference to the memorandum submitted by the Staff Side on behalf of all Federations, Unions, Associations on Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.  We are of the view that the Staff Side, in pursuance of the said memorandum, must seek an audience with the Pay Commission immediately to know the course of action the Commission would like to take in the matter.  We must also seek an appointment with the honourable Finance Minister thereafter so as to ensure that a decision on our demands is taken by the Government without any further delay.  We hope we need not emphasise the fact that the Central Government employees do expect financial benefit on this score as the erosion in the real value of wages as on date is phenomenal. 

  We shall be grateful if you will indicate to us your line of approach in the matter.

  Thanking you and with greetings,
Yours fraternally,


M. Krishnan
Secretary General.

M Krishnan, Secretary General, N F P E, briefed the role and contribution of NFPE as well as the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers in the P & T Trade Union Movement. Narrating the postal trade union movements initiated by Babu Tarapada Mukerjee till date he stressed upon the  uncompromising struggles and sacrifices by the pioneers which have given the Central Govt. employees fixed duty hours, leave, bonus etc. As experienced by the leaders, the demands of the Central Govt. employees have been achieved only during that period when the voice of such a working class is supported by the leaders from the Left front. UPA-I Govt. could not pass the PFRDA bill only due to the objections raised by the Left Parties who were supporting at that time. But UPA-II Govt. could be able to pass the bill with the help of NDA . Both the policies of the NDA and UPA Govt. were/are anti-people and anti-working class. When there is the General Election ahead, it is the duty of every Indian citizen to exercise his valuable mandate to elect a Govt. which will work for the welfare of the working class. The draft biennial report of R-III was placed by Com. R N Dhal, Circle Secretary and the same of R-IV was placed by Com. H K Mohanty, Circle Secretary-R-IV.

No withdrawal of CGHS Cashless Scheme - Health Ministry's Press Note

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare
07-March-2014 
Press Note

There have been reports in the Media that private hospitals on the panel of CGHS are denying credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries for delay in settlement of hospitals bills. Lower package rates and inadmissible deductions etc. have also been reported to be the other reasons for withdrawal of agreed cashless /credit facilities.

In this regard, the CGHS beneficiaries are advised not to be guided by such misleading information. Delay in payments in the last quarter of the financial year due to budgetary constraints is not a new phenomenon and the hospitals are aware of it. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has taken special steps and the pendency is likely to be cleared within a week.

CGHS has already invited bids for revision of package rates through a transparent tender process. The last date for submission of bids is 10th March, 2014. Measures have also been taken to streamline the payment related issues in the ensuing empanelment process.

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will ensure that the CGHS empanelled private hospitals continue to extend cashless /credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries in compliance with the terms and conditions as laid down in the Memorandum of Agreement signed by them with CGHS. As per the information received by the Ministry, most of the private hospitals are continuing to extend the cashless facilities to the CGHSbeneficiaries.
