The Andaman and Nicobar Gazetted Officers’ Association arranged an interactive meeting with Mr R.N. Parashar, Staff Side Member, JCM National Council, Govt. of India and Assistant Secretary of the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, who is currently on a visit to these islands, here on Tuesday. Officers from various departments at Port Blair attended the meeting and raised questions on various issues concerning the 7th Central Pay Commission, New Pension Scheme, delay in implementation of enhanced Allowances on the basis of 7th CPC, outsourcing of government work, etc. which were responded to by Mr Parashar in detail.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Parashar said that the Govt. of India do not pay heed to any of the genuine demands raised by the Staff Side in the JCM. He informed that the implementation of the enhanced Allowances on the basis of the 7th CPC recommendations is delayed by the government with the intention to deny the arrears to the employees. He further said that most likely, the allowances will be implemented during the month of July. He said that lakhs of posts are lying vacant in various departments and Ministries under the Govt. of India while the works in such departments are being outsourced. Referring to the nation-wide agitations being conducted by Service Associations and Unions affiliated to the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, on the pending issues including the issue of New Pension Scheme, Shri Parashar asked the officers in the islands to participate in such programmes and emphasized the need to strengthen the newly formed Andaman & Nicobar Gazetted Officers’ Association. Mr Nazib Khan, President, Andaman & Nicobar Gazetted Officers’ Association presided over the programme. Mr D. Ayyappan, General Secretary welcomed Mr R.N. Parashar and the participants while Mr M.N.
