Fidel Castro the icon of anti imperialist struggle is no more!

Comrade Fidel Castro at 90 has breathed his last yesterday night on 25.11.2016! Comrade Fidel liberated the latin-american 'Cuba' in 1959 through a revolution and established the first socialist system in the continent. Under his able leadership 'Cuba' not only developed as a socialist nation but defeated 60 years of USA's economic blockade and numerous attempts by CIA to assassinate the revolutionary leader. Fidel is the symbol of defiance against imperialist hegemony; icon of revolutionaries of the contemporary world; imparting confidence in socialist ideals even after the collapse of socialist world! A visionary leader of working class is no more! Let us red salute him! - KR GS AIPRPA

NCCPA Circular on latest developments!


13.c Feroze Shah Road,m
 New Delhi. 110 001
Dear Comrades,
This is to inform you that the pension department has ultimately taken a final decision not to allow the option No.1. There are only two options left out for us.  To approach the judiciary and to agitate. We are to embrace both.

Bharath Pensioners Samaj had its General Body meeting on 13th November, 2016.  Both the President of NCCPA and the undersigned attended the inaugural session and addressed the delegates.  They have taken the decision to pursue the pension fitment issue through agitation.  We have assured them of our co-operation.  We have written a letter in this regard.  The copy of the same is enclosed. 

The AIRF has decided to organise  a protest demonstration on 14.12.2016.  The Confederation of CGE and workers have decided to organise a rally and march to parliament on 15.12.2016.  These programmes are  to oppose the totally nugatory attitude of the present Government over the Central Government employees Demands.  The affiliates of NCCPA may kindly advise their members to take part in these action programmes.

There will be a meeting with the Secretary Health soon to discuss the CGHS problems. All affiliates and state units are once again requested to send us Note indicating the various difficulties faced by the members in each State. 

The Government has extended the life certificate date to January, 2017.

The Secretry Staff  Side and the undersigned have written to the Government to disburse the salary for the months of November and December 2016 in cash. 

The annual GB meeting of the AP Unit is slated to be held on 12th and 13th December, 2016. 
We are approaching Associations/Federations of both working and retired employees, who are affected by the New Contributory pension scheme for holding a massive convention at Delhi.  As and when the date for the convention is decided, we shall intimate you.

The allowance committee set up by the Government and headed by the Secretary Expenditure did not meet the staff side formally after  the Staff Side submitted its detailed explanatory memorandum on each of the allowances the Pay Commission has recommended to abolish. The specified time limit under which the committee is to submit its report is over.  The Fixed Medical Allowance  which are presently paid to the pensioners who are not covered by CGHS is under the consideration of the Committee.

We are getting in touch with the Nagpur and Allahabad State Units to explore the possibility of holding the next National Executive Committee meeting of NCCPA 

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

K.KN. Kutty.

Shri S.C. Maheswari,
General Secretary,
Bharat Pensioners Samaj
New Delhi. 

Dear Comrade,

            Kindly refer to the telephonic conversation we had on the subject of organising a rally/dharna at Jantar Mantar in the last week of Feb or in the first week of March 2017 to pursue the demand to implement the recommendation of the 7th CPC in respect of pension fitment under option No.1.  We had the matter discussed amongst us .  We welcome the initiative taken by you in the matter and we assure you of our whole hearted co-operation and participation.

            We feel that in order to ensure large scale participation of pensioners in the programme, it would be better if you could convene a meeting of Secretaries of all Pensioners organisations at Delhi  on a date convenient to you.  We may finalise the date for the programme in consultation with all at the proposed meeting. We further request that such a meeting may please be held not later than the middle of December. 2016.   I would be at Delhi on 30th November, 2016 and again on 13th December to 16th December, 2016. 

            With greetings,
Yours fraternally,

K.KN. Kutty
Secretary General
