Greet the Success of World Congress of TUI(P&R)


Trade Union International (Pensioners & Retirees) 3rd World Congress


The 3rd World Congress of TUI (P&R) is being organized at Athens (Greece) from 14-18 April, 2024. Greece is an European Country and we learn that the Pension Quantum was reduced 17 times in that country and many Pensioners committed suicide also. Powerful movement by the Pensioners Associations and Working Class of that country headed by WFTU and TUI(P&R) have been launched. An appropriate country to hold the World Congress of the TUI(P&R).


From India, six Delegates and one Visitor representing NCCPA, AIBDPA and AIPRPA as well as a new Affiliate ‘All Kerala Bank Retirees Forum’ and an accompanying husband of a woman comrade from AIBDPA are to attend. So far VISA is granted to 5 Comrades by Greece and the remaining two are trying for VISA.


Comrades K.Ragavendran Secretary General NCCPA and TUI Asia Coordinator; D.K.Debnath General Secretary AIPRPA; A.K.Ghosh Working President NCCPA and Member of the Finance Commission TUI(P&R); Swastika Dasgupta AIBDPA Vice President and Member of the Women Commission TUI(P&R); her husband got the VISA so far.


Comrades K.G.Jayaraj General Secretary AIBDPA and Executive Committee Member TUI(P&R); M.Suresh General Secretary AKBRF and a new Member TUI(P&R) have not been given VISA so far by the Greece. The attempts are on and shortly the results will be known.


The World Congress of TUI(P&R) is expected to be large with representatives of a large number of countries of the world. The World Congress will review our past growth and plan for the movement to be launched by the world pensioners and retirees in all countries. We know well that already each year October 1st is being observed as “World Pensioners Day” by the TUI(P&R) synchronizing with the UN Call of “World Elders”. Against the medical mafia who charge different medicines with different prices with a profit motive is targeted and the world congress will plan action.


From India, we are going to emphasize an excusive action in addition to World Pensioners Day as decided in our Thiruvananthapuram Regional TUI (P&R) Conference recently. It is an occasion to understand the condition of Pension and
Social Security in all countries today and to plan for appropriate action. We will also take up the new affiliation to TUI(P&R) the ‘AKBRF’ and ‘DRPU’ as they have expressed their desire to become affiliates of TUI(P&R).


NCCPA greets the Trade Union International (Pensioners and Retirees) for its successful World Congress at Athens (Greece).

International Women Day Symposium!

 March – 8: International Women Day

The International Women Day on March 8 is observed in the whole world. It is evident that the countries of Socialism depict a different picture of safety and economic freedom to the women in contrast to the capitalist world that is no doubt the overwhelming majority.

In the capitalist world, the women are looked upon as sex objects and women trafficking is a major concern. Girls and women are forced into sex trade and there is no humanity in this flesh trade. There is no financial freedom to women in the capitalist countries where the working women also are financially subservient to the men folk especially the husbands. The equal pay for men and women is still a far cry in most of the countries except in big businesses and Public Sectors. 

International Women Day should be an eye opener and the women folk should come out openly in opposing the injustices against them. The day is creating awareness among the women folk more and more. But, wearing of same sarees in the offices and celebrating the day with sweets etc are not going to bring the situation to any change and the struggles alone can lead to emancipation. The men folk no doubt should involve in the struggle but it is the women who have to organize themselves and agitate against the prevailing injustices. 

WFTU (World Federation of Trade Unions) has taken initiative to organize a symposium online today at 8.30 P.M IST. The topic of the INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM is “THE ROLE OF WORKING WOMEN IN THE INTERNATIONAL CLASS ORIENTED TRADE UNION MOVEMENT”. DANIA LEYVA (Cuba) and CINZIA DELLA PORTA (Italy), members of the Educational Committee of the IWI (International Workers Institute) will be addressing the symposium.

All are invited to participate online in Zoom. The LINK to Zoom is:

Comrade Vyasji! We shall carry forward your vision!

 We Remember the legendary leader comrade S.K.Vyas!

Comrade S.K.Vyas can never be forgotten from our memories despite he passed away in the year 2015! He passed away 9 years back on 13th February, 2015 but his yeoman role as the Secretary General and President of Confedrration of CG Employees & Workers for a continuous period of 4 decades will always shine in our memory.
He also founded the NCCPA & was its SG until he breathed his last. He was for a brief time Secretary General of BCPC too ( Bharath Cental Pensioners Confederation) which could not be carried forward for our failures after his demise.
Comrade Vyas was part of all Central Pay Commissions from 1st to 7th during his long and illustrious career. He toiled to prepare the common memorandum for staff and pensioners and fought many battles against successive Governments and led us in the struggle path. We could achieve many things under his great leadership.
We pay rich homage on this day and pledge that we will struggle till we survive against the policy of privatization of Govt and Public Sectors and struggle for scrapping NPS and for restoration of OPS.
He encouraged formation of department wise Pensioners Associations by the retired union leaders of that industry to identify and enroll all pensioners which alone strengthen the NCCPA. AISGPF etc and pave way for creation of a strong movement in India. We will carry forward his vision and dream and make it a reality.
Long live the memory of Comrade S.K.Vyas!
