From the desk of Secretary General



               (Kindly Help us to serve you better)

Dear Affiliates &Members,

I am thankful for the confidence you have deposed in me by unanimously electing me as the next Secy. Genl. Of this great organization.
I am aware of weaknesses & know certain issues need urgent attention .I shall make all out effort to live unto your expectations.
How ever,to enable Federation head office to concentrate  on policy and other issues of general importance,  it is felt necessary to share workload with other office bearers. Besides Zonal Vice Presidents who represent the President BPS in their respective Zones, BPS has four Secretaries i.e. Secretary Railway, Defence BSNL/PSU, Secretary Civil i.e. Postal & other C.G.Civil Pensioners .All the incumbents of these posts are very experienced & competent  persons. BPS constitution  authorize departmental secretaries to take-up individual grievances & to directly write to the concerned authorities. You are therefore, requested to henceforth send individual grievances directly  to department wise Secretaries. Who will either process your grievance online through CPENGRAMS or by referring it to the nodal Ministry .
However, to enable speedy processing of individual grievances, it is essential to provide  following details on the proforma given hereunder :
a.Name
b. Last designation
c. Name of office with complete address, division & zone  from which retired, include the designation of controlling officer  
d. year of retirement & type of retirement.
e. No. of PPO with particulars of its issuing authority.(attach Xerox copy of PPO)
f. Present Full address, Contact No. Mob/Land line,
g. mail address if available.
h. Post held at the time of retirement (and scale of pay)
i. If pension has been sanctioned, Type & quantum may be specified.
j. The particulars of Pension Disbursing Authority with account No                             k. Representations/Correspondence done so far: Attach supporting documents.
l. Summary of your representation brief and short in not more than 150 words.
Kindly note that w/o complete information it may not be possible to process your grievance. 
However, Affiliates may refer to Federation HQ : Policy issues/cases needing clarification or modifications of orders.
Also,Secretaries & vice presidents after action & filtering at their level may refer cases to headquarter if deemed necessary.

Friends,Working of Pensioners’ Federation is entirely different than that of recognized Trade Unions.Pensioners  Federations do not have any negotiating tool, here we have to bank more on persuasive management &opinion building. Legal battles are too costly moreover. Legal fight  alone cannot always help us. Though may have to be resorted to at times, even then it has to be backed by the struggle in field which include opinion building through Rallies , Dharnas, Websites &other social media  etc which  need support of sister organizations also .Thus in my opinion instead of Legal fighting fund we need a Struggle fund to cover connecting activities. Thus through this communication I seek your approval to rename existing Legal fighting fund as “Struggle fund”
