CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS

MEMORANDUM
Memorandum submitted to —————————- on the grievances of Central Government employees and Pensioners.

No………………………… Date…………

Respected Sir/Madam,

We, on behalf of 32 lakhs Central Government employees and 33 lakhs Pensioners, seek your benign intervention to settle the following genuine grievances pending redressal for the last many years. We have brought these issues to the notice of the Central Government several times and also discussed in the negotiating forum which meets rarely. Inspite of our best efforts the issues could not be settled due to the unhelpful attitude of the Government. Having left with no other alternatives, we have been compelled to declare one day nationwide strike of Central Government employees on 15th November 2018. It is in this background, we are approaching your goodself for your kind intervention, so that the matter will be brought to the notice of the Hon'ble Prime Minister for early settlement.
1. Scrap Contributory Pension Scheme (Known as New Pension Scheme - NPS) and restore Defined Benefit Pension Scheme under CCS (Pension) Rules 1972 to all Central Government Employees, joined in service on or after 01-01-2004.
2. Honour assurance given by Group of Ministers to the Leaders of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) of Central Government employees regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula for Pay revision from 01-01­2016.
3. Regularisation and grant of Civil Servant status to Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal Department. Implement all positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee report without any modifications or dilution
4. Pension Parity recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission (Option-I)
5. Filling up of all vacant posts. There are about six lakhs vacant posts remaining unfilled in various Central Government departments.
6. Stop closure of Government establishments
7. Implement 7th CPC wage revision and pension revision of all Autonomous body employees and pensioners.
8. Remove 5% condition imposed on compassionate appointments
9. Stop attack on trade union rights and ensure prompt functioning of various negotiating forums under the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) scheme at National and Departmental level.
10. Grant of five promotions during the entire service career of each employee .
At present almost all employees in the Group B and Group-C cadres retire from service with maximum three promotions only. Our request to ensure minimum five promotions in one's career is not considered favourably by Government.

The above are some of the main issues agitating the minds of lakhs of central Govt. Employees and pensioners for long. Once again request your kind intervention.

With profound regards,
Yours faithfully,

If any change lakes place in this list, it shall be the responsibility of Director RC, ECHS concerned .o ensure display of the corrected/amended list on the website of ECHS without any delay.

5 Whenever an ECHS beneficiary approaches a Pvt. Empanelled Medical Facility with such a referral from ECHS Polyclinic and the Pvt. Empanelled Medical Facility is not empanelled by Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the required treatment procedure / tests, it shall be the responsibility of the Pvt. Empanelled Medical Facility to inform the beneficiary that it is not empanelled for the required treatment procedure / tests. If any Pvt. Empanelled Medical Facility is found providing treatment procedure / conducting tests to such an ECHS beneficiary for which it is not empanelled, then apart from not reimbursing the expenses incurred by the Medical Facility on such treatment, action will be taken against the said ECHS Empanelled Pvt Medical Facility under the rules / as per the provisions of Memorandum of Agreement (MoA).

No ECHS Polyclinic Officer/Official/Doctor should indulge in any action force canvassing for/against any ECHS empanelled Pvt. Medical Facility.

7. The above orders shall come into force with immediate effect.
