It was emphasised and understood that without the active involvement of NFPE leadership at all levels the building of AIPRPA into a strong organisation will be impossible.

NCCPA SECRETARY GENERAL SUPPORTS FORMATION OF DEPARTMENTAL WISE PENSIONERS ORGANISATIONS INCLUDING AIPRPA
2/44, Muthial Chetty Street, Purasawalkam, Chennai – 600 007.
Email ID: firstname.lastname@example.org
AIPRPA / Dec / 1 Dated 31st December, 2014
New Delhi – 110001
Sub: Formation of AIPRPA in all States and Districts – Certain inhibitions and hesitations in some areas – regarding.
You may kindly remember that the AIPRPA (All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association) was founded in the 1st foundation AIC at Vellore (Tamilnadu) in which several leaders including yourself had participated. The AIPRPA was formed as per the decision of the unanimous resolution adopted in the 9th Federal Council of NFPE held at Hyderabad in the month of June, 2013.
As we proceed to constitute State and District level organisations, we are facing a situation in one or two states like Assam and West Bengal where the Postal Pensioners are feeling that this formation of AIPRPA may weaken the united pensioner's movement being built by NCCPA under your leadership. There is also a feeling that formation of a monolithic Pensioners' organisation for the Postal Pensioners is a step towards weakening the composite CGPA Organisations.
I have seen your reply letter to a similar question from the Secretary General of National Federation of Civil Accounts Employees. I therefore request you kindly to clarify as to how the NCCPA look the step being taken by us to establish AIPRPA as a monolithic postal pensioners' organisation? As we are proceeding to sit in our All India Managing Committee soon, your enlightenment will help us in our endeavour to build our organisation.
Thanking you comrade,
NATIONAL COORDINATION COMMITTEE OF PENSIONERS ASSOCIATION (NCCPA)
13-C, Ferozeshah Road, New Delhi -110001
No.F1-2(P)/14 January , 2015
Dear Com. K. Ragvendran,
Thanks for your letter dated 31.12.2014. As I was out of Delhi, there is a certain delay in reply for which I may kindly be excused.
NCCPA is not at all opposed to the idea of a monotithic Pensioners Organisation of Postal Pensioners. we have seen that formation of Central Government (Composite) Pensioners Associations have not been able to motivate all pensioners to join them. If postal pensioner has initiated to form CGPA, the majority of those who have joined it, are Postal Pensioners and only a few Pensioners from other Departments have joined it. If on the other hand an Audit & Accounts Pensioner has initiated to form Pensioners Association, the majority who have joined it are Audit & Accounts Pensioners with few from other Departments. Whereas Postal Pensioners Associations / Railway Pensioners Associations / Central Excise & Customs Pensioners Associations whereever formed have obtained membership from most of the pensioners from respective Departments. On the basis of these ground realities, NCCPA totally favours Pensioners Associations of respective Departments which can federate into a National level Pensioners Associations of respective Departments and these federations can affiliate with NCCPA while their Circle / State level bodies may affiliate with the State /Circle Committees of NCCPA. This is the pattern which is obtaining in Confederation of CGEs & Workers as well.
The CGP as already in existence would obviously be reluctant for such a reorganisation of Pensioners Associations as they would take this move as poaching away some of their members. If we explain that since these Departments wise Pensioners Associations will affiliate at the National level with NCCPA and at State / Circle level with state committees, the composite character would be restored with wider unity amongst the Pensioners, I hope this will satisfy them.

The decision of the CHQ AIPRPA to call the Postal Pensioners to stage a protest demonstration in front of HPOs / Divisional Offices / ROs / Circle Offices against the undue delay in disbursement of enhanced FMA to POSB accounts holding Pensioners stands communicated to the Secretary Department of Posts. The E-Mail communication sent to DG Posts is as follows:
Sub: Postal Pensioners protest against undue delay in disbursement of enhanced FMA to POSB Account holding Pensioners - reg.
The Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare had issued the order for enhancement of FMA from 300/- to 500/- w.e.f. 19-11-2014. The above orders have been implemented for bigger departments like Railways. Even the Postal Pensioners who have Savings Accounts in Banks have received the payment. But the Postal Pensioners who have POSB Accounts for drawing their pension alone are yet to get the payment. This is without any logic and the distress amongst the Postal Pensioners is very deep. This Association had preferred an earlier email to you on this issue. Incidentally NFPE Federation also addressed a letter to Directorate in this matter. However, there seems no progress.
Under these circumstances. if the payment continues to be delayed further, the Postal and RMS Pensioners under our AIPRPA have decided to stage a protest demonstration in front of HPOs / Divisional Offices / ROs / Circle Offices according to local conditions on 12.01.2015.
