DELAY IN ANNOUNCEMENT OF DA CONDUCT NATIONWIDE DEMONSTRATIONS ON 23rd APRIL-2013.

CONFEDERATION CALLS FOR A STRONG PROTEST AGAINST THE INORDINATE DELAY IN GRANTING 8% DA TO CG EMPLOYEES BY GOVERNMENT

No. Conf/27 /2013 -                                                                                                              Dated 17th April 2013
Comrades,

DELAY IN GRANT OF DA - HOLD PROTEST DEMONSTRATION ON 23RD APRIL 2013

            Since the implementation of the recommendations of the 4th central pay commission in 1986, the Dearness Allowance (DA) is paid in two six-monthly installments – in March and September of every year. The practice followed since then is that the order granting DA to government employees is issued in March and September itself.

            This time the practice in force since 1986 is violated. Our enquiries with concerned Ministries informed us that the file is already moved for Cabinet approval. But it is nearly a month now. The cabinet has found no time to take a decision on this.

            This naturally is quiet disturbing, especially in the time of galloping price line. The employees have, in the past, fought bitterly for grant of DA and the 3rd CPC gave a definite formula for DA in the aftermath of the one day strike on 19th September 1968. We cannot allow the hard won DA to be tampered with.

            Confederation has written to Prime Minister conveying the disquiet amongst the amongst the employees over the inordinate delay in the grant of additional installment of DA due from 1st January 2013 and urging the Prime Minister to take immediate steps to assuage the feelings of the employees. Copy of the letter is given along with this Circular.

            The Secretariat of Confederation therefore calls upon every affiliate as well as State Committee of Confederation to organise lunch hour demonstration in the work place on 23rd April 2013, Tuesday and send the following telegram to the Prime Minister of India.

TEXT OF TELEGRAM: EMPLOYEES AGITATED OVER DELAY IN GRANT OF DA, URGE TO EXPEDITE ISSUANCE OF ORDERS.

            Each affiliate and State Committee of Confederation may send a detailed report on implementation of the programme in their organisation/state to the Confederation CHQ.

            With greetings

Yours fraternally

17th April 2013 
Dr Manmohan Singh,
Hon'ble Prime Minister of India
South Block,
New Delhi – 110001

Sir,
           Subject: Grant of Dearness Allowance to Central Govt Employees and Officers – Reg.
            I am to invite your kind attention to the delay in the grant of additional installment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and officers and the consternation it is causing amongst the employees.
            It would be apt to point out here that since the implementation of the 4th CPC recommendations with effect from 1st January 1986, the Dearness Allowance is paid to Central Government employees in two six monthly installments – along with the salary for March and September every year. The 5th and 6th CPCs also recommended the same principle for payment of additional installments of DA and since then the order granting additional installment of Dearness Allowance is being issued well in advance honouring the recommendations.
            The Central Government Employees were expecting the announcement of grant of additional installment of Dearness Allowance (8 % with effect from 1st January 2013) and Office Memorandum on that in the month of March 2013 itself. The delay of more than a month has led to disquiet amongst the employees.
            I shall be thankful if the fears of the central government of employees are allayed by immediately releasing the additional instalment of Dearness Allowance with effect from 1st January 2013 without any further delay.

            Thanking you in anticipation,
Yours faithfully
Sd/-

Secretary General
