A Major Victory of the Struggle of Central Govt Employees from One of the Demands: Govt Order to extend the benefit of Gratuity to all NPS Employees
IMPORTANT GOVT ORDER
A MAJOR VICTORY OF THE STRUGGLE OF CENTRAL GOVT EMPLOYEES:
Confederation of central Govt Employees & Workers have been continuously fighting against pension reforms implemented by Govt in tune with the neo-liberal policies and demanding SCRAPPING OF THE NEW PENSION SYSTEM (NPS). Further we have been demanding that those employees who are covered by NPS should be eligible for payment of Death cum Retirement Gratuity (DCRG) and Family Pension and also Govt guaranteed Minimum Pension and Compensation for price rise (Dearness Relief). Now the Govt has conceded one of our demand. Govt of India has issued orders to extend the benefit of Gratuity to all NPS Employees. Further the Cabinet has decided to constitute a committee for streamlining the implementation of NPS. We shall present the remaining issues before that Committee also. Scrapping of NPS is one of the main demand of 2016 September 2nd General Strike also. No struggle will go in vain. Let us make the strike a grand success
GOI Issued Order: Retirement Gratuity and Death Gratuity Benefits to Central Government Employees covered by National Pension System (NPS) w.e.f. 01.01.2004: DoP&PW O.M.
