The Non-Gazetted Govt. Officers’ Association, Andaman and Nicobar Islands appreciates the decision of the Ministry of Finance, Govt of India to accord its approval for creation of 150 posts of teachers of different categories under the Education Department of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The Andaman and Nicobar Administration had approached the Govt. of India for getting its approval for creation of 193 posts of different categories of posts in the Education Department as there was shortage of teachers in various schools particularly at outstations consequent upon the upgradation of various schools and opening of new schools during the last ten years. The issue was pending with the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Human Resource Development during the last 4 – 5 years. The Non-Gazetted Govt. Officers’ Association was also pursuing this matter with the Govt. of India and A & N Administration. During his visit to Delhi in the second week of January, 2014, Shri D. Ayyappan, General Secretary of the Association had personally met Shri Ratan P. Watal, Secretary (Expenditure) in the Ministry of Finance on 13th January, 2014 and urged him to accord the approval for creation of the 193 posts of teachers for the Education Department, the proposal of which was already pending in the Department of Expenditure. The Secretary (Expdr) had assured Shri D. Ayyappan that a decision will be taken on the matter without any delay. The Association feels that with the creation of 150 more posts of teachers, the quality of education in the rural areas of these islands will further improve. The Association also expresses its gratitude to Shri D.N. Singh, Secretary-cum-Director of Education, A & N Administration who had shown keen interest to pursue this matter with the Govt. of India.

A Mass Dharna was organized at Jantar Mantar (Parliament Street), New Delhi today (24.02.2014) by the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, New Delhi to protest against the negative attitude of the UPA Govt. and Finance Minister Shri P. Chidambaram towards the 15 point charter of demands of the Central Government Employees, including DA merger, Interim Relief, inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks under 7th CPC, date of effect of 7th Central Pay Commission recommendations from 01.01.2014, etc. National level leaders of the Confederation participated in the Mass Dharna. The Mass Dharna was conducted as it was found that even in the Budget (Vote on account) presented by the Finance Minister in Parliament there is no mention about any of the demands of the central government employees. The Confederation has already decided to intensify the struggles after the general elections on the 15-point charter of demands.
A team of leaders of the Non-Gazetted Govt. Officers’ Association undertook a visit to North and Middle Andaman District from 20th to 23rd February, 2014. The team which comprised Shri Sadanand Rai, President, Shri D. Ayyappan, General Secretary and Shri TS Sreekumar, Assistant General Secretary, visited Diglipur, Mayabunder, Billiground and Rangat and addressed a series of meetings of government employees in those areas. Addressing these meetings, Shri Sadanand Rai, President exhorted the employees to strengthen the Non-Gazetted Govt. Officers’ Association to fight for achieving various pending demands and also to protect the benefits already achieved through agitations over the years. Addressing the employees in these meetings, Shri D. Ayyappan, General Secretary came down heavily on the central government for not conceding various genuine and rightful demands of the central government employees like (1) merger of 50%of DA with pay which was due from 1.1.2011, (ii) declaring Interim Relief (3) removal of ban on creation of posts and recruitment, etc. He said that the Interim Budget presented in the Lok Sabha by the Union Finance Minister did not indicate any of the issues relating to the government employees. Shri TS Sreekumar, Asst. General Secretary, while addressing these meetings, explained the steps taken by the Association to resolve various demands of the teachers of the Education Department. Government employees in all the above areas brought to the notice of the leaders the difficulties being faced by them in their respective areas and sought their help to resolve it. Shri D.
