As you know we are now publishing our journal NCCPA news bulletin every month. The journal is supposed to be the link between the CHQ and its affiliates and through them the members. It is not possible to individually correspond to each comrade, though that is the most desirable mode of communication. We have our website and the e mail address. But I find a few uses this modern technology form of communication. Our publishing of the journal has many difficulties. We are tyring to overcome some of them. To make it financially viable we should have sufficient readership. In the last NE meeting of the NCCPA, we decided that each affiliate must try to have 25% of its membership subscribe the journal. Unless the subscriber base is widened, the overhead cost will be prohibitive. Some of our affiliates have done that. But many have failed to increase the subscriber number even by one. Perhaps this decision must not have been reached you. Another reason seems to be that most of our affiliates have their own journals and some of their State Units do publish their journals too. These are popular. . That is why we decided that 25% of the subscriber base atleast should subscribe the CHQ journal. I hope you will bestow your personal attention to this aspect.
Our Next NE meeting has become due. We were to hold it at Nagpur. But due to the falling ill of our comrade, Dhakthod, that venue had to be abandoned. We shall be grateful if some of our affiliates can come forward and host the National Executive Committee meeting. Besides, the office bearers, the Chief executive of the affiliates are the members of the NE. We require this wider meeting especially to plan for a combined effort to organize a programme of action in pursuance of some of the important demands of the pensioners.
As you are aware, we had taken the decision to organize a massive dharna programme at New Delhi to project our resentment over the rejection of Option No. 1. By the Government. We were in consultation with the leadership of BPS. No firm commitment has come from them so far. We are now to explore other possibilities. Same is the case with the NPS convention. We have now come to know that the Confederation and the All India State Govt. Employees Federation have jointly decided to hold the convention at New Delhi. The Pensioners genuinely feel that the Government might invoke the provisions of PFRDA to cover the pre 2004 pensioners under the NPS. These are some of the issues we are to discuss and the National Executive is the appropriate forum to do so. We shall eagerly await for your response in the matter whether it would be possible for you to host the meeting of the National Executive.
Last but not the least, the affiliates are requested to remit the annual subscription to NCCPA without further loss of time.
To All affiliates by post and for immediate information to be placed in the website.
