Dear Comrades/Friends,

In response to the proposal from Com. Arijit Lahiri, Finance Secretary, NFCAA the apex COC of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations has after careful consideration concluded the following-, 
As per the understanding between the Government and the Central Government Employees Organisations /Staff side (JCM)
1.   5% DA due was supposed to be added to salary of the Central Government Employees for the month of September 2019. But the Government has not so far ordered for payment of 5% DA to the Central Government Employees.
2.   The Bonus for 2018-19 (being the deferred wage) under the revised ceiling of Rs.18000/ - in place of Rs.7000/- is to be paid by the Govt. conventionally before the commencement of National Festival. But, other than the Railway Employees, Government has not so far ordered for payment of Bonus while the national festivals have virtually commenced. 
Under the above circumstances, the apex level Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and Officers Associations has decided that  'Demands Day' for payment of 5%  DA from July19 and Bonus for 2018-19 on enhanced ceiling of minimum of Rs. 18000/- shall be held at all stations 1st October 2019. 
All local COCs are to hold a lunch hour demonstration on 1st October 19 at a central place and send a resolution to the Cabinet Secretary.
Therefore, preparations may be taken accordingly.  We hope, on the basis of the WhatsApp message circulated on 28th September 2019, all Branch/Unit/Regional leaders/ committee members/secretaries have contacted the leaders of the local co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees and officers Associations of their respective stations in the meantime and held preliminary discussions. The preparation may be intensified and ensured that maximum numbers of members of all affiliates of COC participate in the programme. 
The text of the Resolution to be adopted and forwarded to the Cabinet Secretary to the Government of India is attached to this circular. The Resolution may be forwarded to the following address -
Hon’ble Cabinet Secretary,
 Government of India
Rashtrapati Bhawan
New Delhi - 110 004

It has been observed that, often our leaders hesitate to sign and forward the Resolutions. In this respect it is clarified that, right of forwarding representations to the authorities on behalf of the employees has been provided to us by the Constitution of our country. The JCM Scheme and the forming the Unions and Associations have been introduced by the Government for the redressal of the grievances of the employees. If the grievances are not conveyed through the platform of the Associations/ Unions, government would not be able to know the grievances of its employees and resolve those. Therefore, the Resolutions may be adopted and forwarded to the Cabinet Secretary without any hesitation and copies may be endorsed to Central Headquarters of affiliates of the COC.
If any fraternal organization expresses their desire to take part, they may be made the part of the programme.

With warm greetings,

This meeting of the Co-ordination Committee of Civil Accounts Employees  & Associations…………………..(name of the station) held today the 1st October, 2019 has deliberated on the issues of non-releasing instalment of DA to the Central Government Employees due with effect from 1st July, 2019 and non-payment of Bonus to the Central Government Employees other than  the employees of Railways.
The installment of DA @ 5% of the basic pay to the Central Government Employees as per consumer price index is due since July, 2019.
On the eve of Festival season every year, Central Government Employees are granted Bonus under the schemes of non-productivity and productivity linked bonus respectively to Central Government Employees and Postal Employees etc. being the deferred wage. But so far the Government has not issued the orders for payment of Bonus for 2018-19 to the Central Government Employees other than the Employees working in Railways while the national festivals have already commenced.
Further, for calculating the ceiling for payment of Bonus, monthly emoluments   of employees has been fixed as Rs:- 7000/- which is only 38% of the minimum entry pay of Rs:- 18000/- for the Central Government Employee at the lowest level. Hence, the ceiling limit for calculation of bonus has to be Rs. 18000/- instead of 7000/- at present through amendment of Bonus Act.
The meeting therefore, resolves to urge upon the Hon’ble Cabinet Secretary, Government of India to  kindly intervene and arrange for releasing of installment of DA due with effect from July 2019 and payment of bonus for 2018-19 to the Central Government Employees by raising the ceiling limit to Rs:- 18000/-.
The meeting further resolves to forward the Resolution to Hon’ble Cabinet Secretary to the Government of India and endorse its copies to the Central headquarters of AICAEA, New Delhi, AICAEA CATII, Mumbai and AIAPAO (Civil), Mumbai.
