Non-acceptance of Nomination Form for Life Time Arrear (LTA) – CPAO Orders



CPAO/IT &Tech/Bank Performance/37 [Vol-111)/2018-19/22

Dated: 15.05.2018
OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Non-acceptance of Nomination Form for Life Time Arrear (LTA)
It has been observed that Pension Payee Scheduled Bank branches are not accepting Nomination Form for “Life Time Arrear” on the pretext that their branch has not received any instructions from their head office.

As per para 23 of the Scheme Booklet on acceptance of Nomination Form for Life Time Arrears provides that where the Nomination for the payment of arrears does not exist then the Authorized Bank will seek instructions of the CPAO, who will in turn, refer the matter to AG/CCA/CA/Dy.CA for obtaining the requisite sanction of Head of the Office. As such, the claimant can also approach the Head of Office where the pensioner served before his/her retirement/ death.

Moreover para 4.5.7 of the Scheme Booklet clearly states that “CPPCs may ensure that the responsibilities assigned to Home Branches are enforced so that the pensioners are not redirected to CPPC for redressal of grievances and information needs. Necessary performance measures and monitoring mechanisms, in co-ordination with the respective administrative structures to achieve the desired level of service delivery in Home Branches as well as CPPCs may be instituted by the Bank.”
This issues with the approval of Chief Controller (Pensions).

Strike Declaration National Convention of Central Govt Employees – Confederation


STRIKE DECLARATION NATIONAL CONVENTION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
 
Ref: Confdn/Genl/2016-19
Dated – 14.03.2018
“DEFEAT THE DISASTROUS NEO-LIBERAL POLICIES
DEFEAT THE ANTI-LABOUR RULING CLASS POLITICS BEHIND IT” 
10th JUNE 2018-HYDERABAD 
STRIKE DECLARATION NATIONAL CONVENTION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
Venue : SUNDARAIYYA VIGNANA KENDRAM, BAGALINGAMPALLY, HYDERABAD 
Time : 10 AM to 5 PM
Dear Comrades,
Attack on the working class and peasants as a whole and Central Government Employees in particular are mounting day by day. The entire working class and peasantry are on struggle path. The farmers long march in Maharashtra is the latest mass struggle. None of the 7th CPC related demands of Central Government Employees are settled. The assurance given by the Group of Ministers to the NJCA leaders regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is in paper even after a lapse of 20 months. Now the Finance Minister has replied in Parliament that “no change in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is at present under consideration”. Employees who joined service after 01.01.2004 are retiring with a megre pension of 1000 to 2000 rupees only under the NPS Scheme. In effect, New Pension System has become No Pension System. Six lakhs posts are lying vacant for the last many years and now Govt. has issued orders to abolish all posts lying vacant for more than five years. HRA arrears, MACP Bench mark, Option-I for pensioners – Govt. is not ready to reconsider their stand. Three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal department are waiting for two years for their legitimate wage revision. Exploitation of Casual and contract workers continue and equal pay for equal work is denied to them. Large scale outsourcing and privatization has become the order of the day. Privatisation of Railways and outsourcing of the work done by Defence employees are in full swing. 12 out of 17 Govt. of India Printing Presses are ordered to be closed. Same is the fate with other departmental printing presses including Railway printing presses. Autonomous body employees and pensioners are denied their rightful wage revision and pension revision due to the stringent conditions imposed by the Finance Ministry. Compassionate appointments have become a mirage.
Trade Union rights are denied. Orders banning dharna and demonstrations are issued. The draconian FR 56 (j) and Pension Rules 48 are misused as a short-cut to punish and victimize employees. JCM forums have become mere talking shops without any positive results. Recognition under CCS (RSA) Rules are delayed and Departmental Councils have become dead in many departments. Govt. sponsored unions are given undue patronage. Recognition of fighting organisations are withdrawn on flimsy grounds and trade union facilities are denied to the Chief Executives of recognised Associations.
It is in this background the National Secretariat of Confederation of Central Government employees & Workers has decided to fight back these retrograde policies by mobilizing the entire Central Government employees by unleashing intensive campaign throughout the country culminating in strike. To declare the compaign programme and the strike, a “National Convention of Central Government Employees” will be held at Hyderabad on 10th June 2018 Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM.
Eminent trade Union leaders will attend the Convention. Venue of the National Convention is Sundaraiyya Vigmana Kendra, Bagalingampally, Hyderabad. About 1000 delegates from all states will attend the Convention.
The following quota is fixed for affiliates and COCs outside Andhra and Telangana. C-O-C Andhra & Telangana shall mobilise 500 delegate.
