Central Trade Unions call for
Nationwide General Strike on 8th and 9th January 2019


National Convention of Workers decides to go for Nationwide General Strike on 8-9 January 2019 against the anti-people, anti-worker, anti-national policies of the BJP-led NDA Government.

The National Convention of Workers held today, the 28th September 2018, in Mavlankar Hall, New Delhi, decided to go for two days’ Nationwide General Strike on 8-9 January 2019 against the anti-people, anti-worker, anti-national policies of the BJP-led NDA Government.

The convention was jointly called by the ten Central Trade Unions (INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC,TUCC, AICCTU, SEWA, LPF, UTUC), in association with all independent National Federations of Workers and Employees, of both Industrial and Service sectors, Central Government and State Government employees, including Railways, Defense, Health, Education, Water, Post, Scheme Workers etc; in the public sector undertaking such as Banks, Insurance, Telecom, Oil, Coal, Public Transport etc, Factories, and from the unorganised sectors-Construction, Beedi, Street vendors, Domestic Workers, Migrant Workers, Scheme workers, Home based workers, rickshaw, auto-rickshaw and taxi drivers, agricultural workers etc., expresses serious concern over the deteriorating situation in the national economy due to the pro- corporate, anti-national and anti-people policies pursued by the Central Government and some of the States ruled by the BJP, grievously impacting the livelihood of the working people across the country.

The Presidium of the Convention consisted of Ashok Singh, Ramendra Kumar, S. N. Pathak, K. Hemlata, R. K. Sharma, Probir Banerjee, Lata, Santosh Rai and Shatrujeet Singh. Dr. Sanjeeva Reddy (INTUC), Amarjeet Kaur (AITUC), Harbhajan Singh Sidhu (HMS), Tapan Sen (CITU), Satyavan (AIUTUC), G.R.Shivshankar (TUCC), Manali Shah (SEWA), Rajeev Dimri (AICCTU), Sanmugham (LPF), Ashok Ghosh (UTUC) addressed the Convention. Shivgopal Mishra( AIFR) and Guman Singh (NFIR) also addressed the convention.

The Convention noted with utter dismay that the Government has been continuing to arrogantly ignore the 12 point Charter of Demands on minimum wage, universal social security, workers’ status and including pay and facilities for the scheme workers, against privatization of public and government sector including financial sectors and mass scale contractorisation, ratification of ILO Convention 87, 98 etc. being jointly pursued by the entire trade union movement of the country. The ILO Convention 177 on Home Work and 189 on Domestic Work are also yet not ratified.

The Convention expressed its grave concern on scraping of hard-won 44 Central Labour Laws and replacing them with 4 employer-friendly Labour Codes and introduction of Fixed Term Employment through executive order. The Convention also expressed its anguish over New Pension Scheme and demand restoration of the old Pension Scheme. The Convention expresses solidarity with the fighting farmers and the Transport Workers of Rajasthan who are on an indefinite strike since 16th September, 2018.

This National Convention of Workers recorded its strong denunciation against the communal and divisive machinations on the society being carried on with the active patronage of the Government machinery. The BJP Governments are using draconian UAPA, NSA as well as the agencies of CBI, NIA, IT to harass and suppress any dissenting opinions. The peace loving secular people in the country are facing a stark situation of terror and insecurity all around. Working Class will raise its strong voice of protest.

In order to serve the interests of the multinational companies with Indian corporate, the present Government is pursuing blatantly anti-people, anti-workers and anti-national policies at the cost of severely damaging the national economy and destroying its indigenous productive and manufacturing capabilities. Such a regime must be defeated squarely to force the pro-people changes in policies on all fronts. This united platform of the working class resolves to heighten its struggle to that end.

The National Convention of workers adopted the following programmes:

1. State level, district level and industry/sector level joint conventions to be held during October/November 2018
2. Joint Industry-level gate meetings, rallies etc. during November and December,2018
3. Submission of strike notice jointly with demonstrations during 17-22 December, 2018
4. Two days countrywide General Strike on 8th and 9th January 2019.

The National Convention called upon working people across the sectors and throughout the country irrespective of affiliations, independent unions, federations, associations to make the above programmes a total success.

Sub:- Reduction of one day Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) to the employees of OFB & DGQA under Department of Defence Production against the Cabinet decision and Government orders.

Ref : Minutes of the meeting of the Standing Committee of the National Council (JCM) held on 25th October 2016 under the Chairmanship of Secretary.

Dear Madam,

In the Standing Committee meeting held on 25/10/2016 the following decision was taken on the above Agenda item :

"Staff Side reiterated that pending, decision on PRIS and PRP as recommended by both 6th and 7th CPC, the existing Cabinet approved formula should be in operation. Hence the reduction of one day's PLB in the Department of Defence Production and EME under MOD is not Justified. So the unpaid PLB should be given back to the employees to avoid any litigation on the subject. Secretary (P) desired that JS (Pers) may re-examine the matter"

It is now almost 2 years after above decision taken in the Standing Committee meeting. However no instructions has been issued by the Department of Expenditure to pay back the PLB days deducted to the employees of Department of Defence Production (OFB, DGQ and DGAQA) and EME of MOD. Since the affected employees are pressing hard it is request that you may kindly arrange to issue necessary instruction in this regard.

A copy of your instruction may please he endorsed to this office.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
S/d,

After the formation of Telengana state on 2nd June, 2014 , the Sub-Regional office Vijayawada was upgraded as Regional office for Andhra Pradesh from 1st May, 2016.  As a result, the jurisdiction of ESIC Regional office, Vijayawada was extended to all thirteen districts of Andhra Pradesh with effect from 01.05.2016. The area of Yanam of Union Territory of Puducherry is also attached to Andhra Pradesh region.

The ESI Scheme stands fully implemented in all the 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh and at present the number of Insured persons and ESI beneficiaries in the State are over 16.74 lakhs and 64.96 lakhs respectively. The number of employers (Factories and establishments) covered under ESI Scheme in the State is 36,422. Besides, 4324 Educational Institutions and 944 private hospitals/educational institutions were also brought under the coverage of ESI Act.

Dear Comrades,

Sub: Meeting of AIRF to discuss promotional prospects of staff, particularly in GP Rs.1800 and Rs.4600

Meeting on the subject cited above was held in the chamber of DG(Personal), Railway Board, today.

After detailed deliberations; the following decisions were arrived:-

(a) There will not be any recruitment in GP Rs.4600 in any category except Medical Department.

(b) The condition of direct recruitment to at least 25% or more in respective categories for holding GDCE will be done away.

(c) Board orders permitting GMs to hold GDCEs up to 50% of DR Quota will be further enhanced up to 75%, keeping in view the serious frustrations in serving employees having higher academic/technical qualifications so as to enhance their promotional prospects on similar parameters of Direct Recruitment in higher categories.

(d) On the issue of career progression of the SSEs, though AIRF insisted for timebound promotion for JEs and SSEs, the administration agreed to pursue the matter, providing 75% upgradation of staff in GP Rs.4600 to Rs. 4800.

Yours faithfully,

The General Secretaries of Affiliated Unions of NFIR Dear Brother,

The demand of NFIR vide PNM Item No. 12/2017 was discussed in the Board PNM meeting held on 13th /14th November, 2017. The NFIR' s Agenda provides detailed background of Incentive Bonus rates from time to time and the need for upward revision of the rates in the wake of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrices for Workshops and PU employees on Indian Railways.

3rd Meeting of Committee for recommendation of hourly rates of incentive bonus and bonus factors of Workshops/PUs has been held this day 26th September, 2018 at Rail Bhavan, New Delhi.

1.Leave granted.

2. Crisp and short question which arises for consideration in these cases is as to whether, in the absence of any provision in the Pension Rules, the State Government can withhold a part of pension and/or gratuity during the pendency of departmental/ criminal proceedings? The High Court has - answered this question, vide the impugned judgment, in the negative and hence directed the appellant to release the withheld dues to the respondent.

Not happy with this outcome, the State of Jharkhand has preferred this appeal.

3. For the sake of convenience we will gather the facts from Civil Appeal arising out of SLP(Civil) No. 1427 of 2009. Only facts which need to be noted, giving rise to the aforesaid questions of law, are the following:

The respondent was working in the Department of Animal Husbandry and Fisheries. He joined the said Department in the Government of Bihar on 2.11.1966. On 16.4.1996, two cases were registered against him under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code as well as Prevention of Corruption Act, alleging serious financial irregularities during the years 1990-1991, 1991-1992 when he was posted as Artificial Insemination Officer, Ranchi. On promulgation of the Bihar Reorganisation Act, 2000, State of Jharkhand (Appellant herein) came into existence and the Respondent became the employee of the appellant State. Prosecution, in respect of the aforesaid two criminal cases against the respondent is pending. On 30th January, 2002, the appellant also ordered initiation of disciplinary action against him. While these proceedings were still pending, on attaining the age of superannuation, the respondent retired from the post of Artificial Insemination Officer, Ranchi on 31.08.2002.

Reversion to old pension scheme due to administrative delay


Reversion to old pension scheme due to administrative delay

"NPS applicable to Government servants appointed to civil posts on or before 31.12.2003. The date on which the vacancies arose or the date on which the examination was conducted for filling up the vacancies is not relevant for deciding the applicability of the Central Civil Services (Pension) rules, 1972"

Reversion to old pension scheme

In accordance with the scheme for National Pension System (NPS), as notified vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Economic Affairs)'s Notification No. 5/7/2003-ECB & PR dated 22.12.2003, the System is mandatory for all new recruits to the Central Government service (except armed forces) from 01.01.2004. Accordingly, as per Rule 2 of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, as amended on 30.12.2003, these rules are applicable to Government servants appointed to civil posts on or before 31.12.2003. The date on which the vacancies arose or the date on which the examination was conducted for filling up the vacancies is not relevant for deciding the applicability of the Central Civil Services (Pension) rules, 1972.

Ministry of Home Affairs have not sought any advice from Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare on the question of having a policy to cover the paramilitary personnel appointed after 01.01.2004 under the Old Pension Scheme on the ground that the vacancies arose, or the examination was conducted, in the year 2003. However, a reference was received from Ministry of Home Affairs in a specific case relating to appointments as Sub-Inspector in various Central Para Military Forces after selection in August, 2003 on the basis of an Examination conducted in 2002.

Appointments on the basis of these selections were made in Central Reserve Police Force in 2003 and the candidates appointed were covered by the pension scheme under Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 1972. However, in the Border Security Force, offers of appointment on the basis of the same examination/selection were issued in January, 2004. On a petition filed by some personnel appointed in the Border Security Force on the basis of that examination, Hon'ble High Court of Delhi directed to cover the petitioners under the Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 1972 on the grounds of administrative delay on the part of Border Security Force in making appointments.

The order of Hon'ble High Court of Delhi was implemented by the Ministry of Home Affairs/Border Security Force in view of the peculiar circumstances of that case. The decision taken in that case is, however, not relevant for deciding applicability of Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules to all appointments made on or after 01.01.2004 in the Central Para Military Forces or in any other Department/organization on the basis of year of examination/selection.

This information was provided by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 19.7.2018.

Sub: Appointment on compassionate grounds - Relaxation in upper age limit regarding.

Attention is invited to para IX (Authority competent to make appointments on compassionate grounds) and para VI(a) (Qualification and conditions to be fulfilled) Board’s letter dated 12.12.1990 which lays down that normally the persons seeking appointment on compassionate grounds should fulfil the conditions of eligibility regarding age and educational qualifications prescribed for appointment to the posts or grade concerned. However, the upper age limit may be freely relaxed on merits of the cases.

The lower age limit of 18 years normally required for appointment in Government may also be relaxed upto one year with the personal approval of the General Manager. Relaxation of the lower age limit beyond one year will require the approval of the Ministry of Railways. In making appointments on compassionate grounds, Divisional Railway Managers may relax age limit in the case of appointment to Group 'D' posts.

The issue of delegation of power to DRM/CWM regarding relaxation of upper age limit in making compassionate grounds appointment was under consideration in this office. It has now been decided by the Board that wherever DRM/CWM is competent to make the appointment on compassionate grounds, they may grant relaxation in upper age limit also.

7th CPC Bonus Recommendations Report

7th CPC Bonus Recommendations Report
The Terms of Reference (ToR) of the Commission mandate that it examines the existing schemes for payment of bonus and their impact on performance and productivity.

Consultation with Stakeholders was Considered Important: The system of Performance Linked Bonus (PLB) and Ad hoc Bonus have been prevalent in the Central Government for a fairly long time. Therefore, for the replacement of the existing bonus schemes with any other incentive scheme, prior consultation with the stakeholders was considered essential

The Commission feels that there is strong need to create a culture of performance in government - from establishing standards of performance, to measuring, and promoting people based on performance. To emphasize on the culture of performance, the Commission has recommended that all the non-performers in the system should be phased out after 20 years. The Commission has recommended that Performance Related Pay should be introduced in the government and that all Bonus payments should necessarily be linked with productivity.

Bonus Schemes and Performance Related Pay

The Commission feels that any Performance Related Pay (PRP) for Central Government employees should provide a credible framework to drive performance across ministries/departments. Rather than a new system design, the favoured approach should be an incremental adaptation which can operate within the existing framework of rules with minor changes that can enable smooth implementation and operationalization of PRP.

In this backdrop, the Commission recommends introduction of the Performance Related Pay for all categories of Central Government employees, based on quality RFDs, reformed APARs and broad Guidelines, as enumerated above.

The Commission also recommends that the PRP should subsume the existing Bonus schemes. The Commission notes that there could be a time lag in implementing the Performance Related Pay by different departments. Till such time, the existing Bonus Schemes should be reviewed and linked with increased profitability/productivity under well-defined financial parameters.

Bonus Calculation: To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

Abolition of Contributory Pension Scheme

Representations have been received from various Associations of Government Employees on the problems being faced and the demand to withdraw the National Pension System (NPS). The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) also in its report examined the issues related to NPS and made recommendations for addressing these issues.

Pursuant thereto, it was decided to constitute a Committee of Secretaries to suggest measures for streamlining NPS. The Committee has submitted its report. Due to rising and unsustainable pension bill and keeping in view of fiscal imperatives, it is not possible for the government to revert back to old pension scheme.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of payment of Breakdown Allowance to the staff working in GP 2000/Level 3 of 7th CPC - reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board's letter No.E(P&A)II-2017/BDA-1 30-08-2017 (RBE No.106/2017)
(ii) NFIR's letter No.I/5(g)/Part V dated 11-04-2018
(iii) Railway Board's letter No.E(P&A)II-2017/BDA-1 dated 14-09-2018 (RBE No.138/2018)

Pursuant to NFIR's reference vide letter dated 11-04-2018 relating to admissibility of payment of Breakdown Allowance to the staff working in GP 2000/Level-3 of 7th CPC who were left erroneously in Board’s order dated 30th August,2017 (RBE No.106/2017), Railway Board vide letter dated 14-09-2018 (RBE No.138/2018) have issued clarification for grant of Breakdown Allowance to the Technicians Grade-III though drawing pay in higher pay level under MACPS at the rates prescribed for the post held by the employee. Federation however noticed that the said instructions are not in conformity with the Federation’s demand to grant Breakdown Allowance to the Staff working in GP 2000/Level-3 at the pay received in the same Grade Pay/Pay Level.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that the Breakdown Allowance is treated as Compensatory Allowance and is attached to the extra-ordinary duties performed by such staff. The Board's clarification dated 14-09-2018 limiting the payment of Breakdown Allowance to the post held by the staff i.e. substantive pay in GP 1900, is unjustified and needs to be corrected suitably to render justice to the staff of Technical Categories.

NFIR, therefore, urges the Railway Board to consider the above points and issue amendment to the clarification to letter dated 14-09-2018 soon duly endorsing copy to the Federation.

Newly Launched Atal Bimit Vyakti Kalyan Yojna to Benefit More Than 3 Crore Insured Persons



Ministry of Labour & Employment

Newly Launched Atal Bimit Vyakti Kalyan Yojna to Benefit More Than 3 Crore Insured Persons
26 SEP 2018
Around 3.2 crore Insured Persons (IPs) will benefit from newly launched scheme of ESIC 'Atal Bimit Vyakti Kalyan Yojna'. The ESI Corporation has approved 'ATAL BIMIT VYAKTI KALYAN YOJNA' for Insured Persons (IP) covered under the Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948. This scheme is a relief payable in cash directly to the Bank Account in case of unemployment and while they search for new engagement. The cash benefit given to the unemployed persons searching for new employment will be 25 percent of his average earning of 90 days. Shri Gangwar was addressing on the occasion of 7th National Conference on Security and Safety at Workplace and distribution of Safety Systems Excellence Awards in New Delhi today.

Addressing the function, the Minister added that there are around six crores of workers in organized sector who are getting benefits of EPFO, ESIC and Social Security Schemes. The Union Government has taken many steps to enhance their working conditions, safety and social security in order to improve their standard of living. Present government is continuously making efforts to improve life conditions of around 40 crore workers of the unorganized sector also. In last two years nearly one crore workers have been linked with ESIC benefits and more than one crore have been brought in the fold of EPFO. Pradhan Mantri Jeewan Jyoti Beema Yojna and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Beema Yojna  are totally free for unorganized workers. He further said that nearly 3 crore workers are benefitting from these Social Security Schemes.

The honorarium of 14 Lakh Aanganwadi workers have been increased from Rs. 3,000 per month to Rs. 4,500 per month. Likewise, honorarium of Aanganwadi helpers has also been increased from Rs. 1,500 to Rs. 2,250 per month. The incentive of AASHA workers has also been doubled, he added.

Shri Gangwar further said that the Ministry is making efforts to increase employment opportunities through Pradhan Manrti Rojgar Protsahan Yojana. Twelve per cent of the Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) contribution of new employees is being given by government so that employers may not have to bear this cost. The government has spent Rs. 1,744 crores for this EPF contribution for around 72 Lakh employees of nearly 87,000 organizations in last two years.

7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays


7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays
7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th Central Pay Commission Recommendations on Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

Allowances Covered
1. Holiday Compensatory Allowance
2. Holiday Monetary Compensation
3. National Holiday Allowance
Employees, who are regularly required to work on holidays, are compensated in a variety of ways. Some, like the employees of Delhi Police and the CISF, are granted an extra month's pay per year. Employees of other CAPFs are granted extra thirty days' leave. Some other categories of staff are paid allowances, which are dealt with in this section. There are 3 such allowances.

1. Holiday Compensatory Allowance

It is a compensation for non-gazetted staff of IB who are required to perform duties on holidays and weekends; granted at the rate of one day's (Basic Pay + DA) for up to thirty days in a financial year. No demands have been received regarding this allowance.

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission notes that employees in almost all ministries/departments are, sometimes, required to work on weekends. They are usually compensated by providing a "compensatory off." Thus, grant of an allowance for weekend working is not justified.

At the same time, the sensitive, and time bound nature of work done by IB should also be kept in mind. Therefore, it is recommended that the non-gazetted staff of IB, presently covered under Holiday Compensatory Allowance, should, henceforth, be covered by National Holiday Allowance. They will be granted this allowance for up to twelve holidays in a year (including the three National Holidays) at the rates prescribed. Accordingly, Holiday Compensatory Allowance, as a separate allowance, should be abolished.

[Government Decision on Holiday Compensatory Allowance: Abolished as a separate allowance. Eligible employees to be governed by National Holiday Allowance. Not to be subsumed and retained as a separate allowance. Existing system to continue in Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)]

2. Holiday Monetary Compensation

This allowance is granted in Department of Posts and is payable to postmen and other departmental staff who are required to perform duty on second holiday if three consecutive holidays occur. The existing rates are:

Category Rate of Remuneration
Supervisor Rs.85 per holiday for 4 hours
Postal Assistant Rs.85 per holiday for 4 hours
PostmenSorting Postmen/Rs.85 per holiday
Multi-tasking staff Rs.60 per holiday for 4 hours
Demands have been received to increase the rate of this allowance to Rs.600 per holiday.

Analysis and Recommendations

Since the allowance is not DA indexed, it is proposed to raise the amount to Rs.200 per holiday for Supervisors, Postal Assistants and Postmen/Sorting Postmen; and Rs.150 per holiday for Multi-tasking Staff. The rate of allowance will further increase by 25 percent each time DA increases by 50 percent.

[Government Decision on Holiday Monetary Compensation: Retained. Rationalized. Accepted ]

3. National Holiday Allowance

This allowance is paid to non-gazetted Railway employees who are rostered to work on a "National Holiday." The existing rates are:

Pay in Pay Band + Grade Pay Rate
up to Rs.7260 Rs.256 per day
Rs.7261-Rs.9700 Rs.318 per day
Rs.9701 and above (limited to non-gazetted staff) Rs.420 per day

There are demands to increase the amount of this allowance to 1.5 x (one day's Basic Pay + DA)

Analysis and Recommendations
The Commission notes that although there are only three National Holidays, this allowance is granted for twelve days in a year due to operational constraints. Also, the allowance is already partially indexed to the DA. Hence, it is recommended that the amount should be increased by 50 percent to the following:

LevelRate of Allowance (per day)
1 and 2Rs.384
3 to 5 Rs.477
6 to 8 (limited to non-gazetted staff) Rs.630

The rate of allowance will further increase by 25 percent each time DA rises by 50 percent.

[Government Decision on National Holiday Allowance: Retained. Enhanced by 50%. Accepted ]

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Non-redressal of issues discussed by the Federations - Grant of regular absorption of staff working in Quasi Administrative Offices/Units in the erstwhile Group 'D' posts - reg.

Ref: Federations Joint letters No.II/IB dated 09/05/2016 & I5/05/20I7 to CRB.

Federations have repeatedly been inviting kind attention of the Railway Board at all levels including at the level of Hon'ble MR, CRB to the DC/JCM item No.27/2006, urging decision for absorption of staff working in the Quasi Administrative Office/Units against erstwhile Group 'D' vacancies since long.

The subject was also discussed by NFIR and AIRF in full Board meetings held on 07/02/2014, 01/10/2015 and 04/02/2016. Federations are deeply disappointed that though years passed, the issue is still pending unresolved. The Federations Joint communications to the Railway Board Chairman vide letters dated 09/05/2016 and 15/05/2017 have unfortunately not yielded positive result.

The Federations have re-iterated through joint letter dated 09/05/201, the justification for restoration of the earlier policy formulated in the year 1973 & 1977 to facilitate regular absorption of staff working in Quasi Administrative Offices/Units. The Federations had sent another letter dated 15/05/2017 requesting to arrange a meeting at the level of Hon'ble MR and CRB, unfortunately no meeting has been convened as yet. Federations desire to state that 12 valid points were conveyed to the Railway Board on the legal opinion tendered by the Learned ASG relating in this particular case, but however there has been no positive response yet. Federations once again enclose a copy of 12 points for consideration at the level of Railway Ministry which we feel are sufficient to keep the policy alive. The subject was also highlighted by the Federations during. Standing Committee Meetings held between the Federations and the Railway Board (MS, DG/P etc.) on 7th Feb, 2018, 4th April, 2018 without any positive result which is unfortunate

The Federations also reiterate that the decision of Railway Board vide dated 10/06/1997 was arbitrary as the same was issued without consultations with us which amounts to breach of agreement reached with the Federations during previous periods.

We therefore requests the CRB again to kindly intervene and see that a meeting takes place at your level early to settle this long pending issue besides other issues where agreements have been reached but not implemented so far. Alternatively we suggest a special meeting with Hon'ble Railway Minister early.

Yours faithfully
