Ref:- Your letter No. 19-31/2012-WL&Sports dated 12.07.2013.
The welfare scheme cannot be contributory. It is responsibility of the state to look after the welfare of staff—holders of civil post included. We don’t agree to this contributory scheme replacing the present scheme. However, we shall appreciate the scheme, if it is provided as an additional measure apart from the existing one.
With our strong protest to the scheme replacing the present one and treating it as an additional welfare measure, we are offering our para wise views and suggestions is the enclosed Annexure, for improving the provision of scheme.
We are still to receive feed-back from our Circle and grass root formations and shall be offering further views/suggestions later on. Hence we suggest that the implementation of the scheme may be extended to 1.10.2013 to have wide consideration to make it a perfect scheme.
Copy forwarded to:- All Circle Secretaries and CWC members. They are requested to offer their own suggestion along with those of grass root formations within 20.8.2013 so that we may consolidate the same and submit to the Dte.25.08.2013
