Central Government Employees to Protest outside the Parliament on April 28; Plan for Indefinite Strike


Central Government Employees to Protest outside the Parliament on April 28; Plan for Indefinite Strike

Central government employees have announced that they are going to protest outside the Parliament on April 28 against the Government’s decision to not hike the income tax slab. There are plans to launch an indefinite strike in July.

Protests were held at the Income Tax office in Nungambakkam on behalf of the central Government Employees Mahasammelanam, against the Government’s decision to not hike the minimum tax levels this time. The protests were led by the Sammelan’s general secretary, M. Duraipandian. Union leaders like J. Ramamurthy and S. Sundaramurthy presided over the protests.

In a media interview during the protests, Duraipandian said – Fund allocation deficits – “The Central Government budget submitted on February 28 brought no relief to the poor and the middle class. It was entirely in favour of the rich and the wealthy. Even though the prices of crude oil fell all over the world, the Government ensured that it remained the same in India. With an increase in excise taxes, the prices of petroleum and diesel actually increased in the country.

“The Government reduced corporate taxes from 30% to 25, but failed to increase the tax slab for the salaried class. How can the government then call it the budget of the masses? Allocations to social welfare, health and education were also very minimal.

“The BJP, that came to power by promising to curb inflation and increasing prices, is now involved in activities that lead to the very same things. Therefore, minimum income tax slab should be immediately raised to Rs.5 lakhs. Also, the Government must allocate funds to declare interim relief for the 7th Pay Commission.
“We are going to protest outside the Parliament on April 28, to present these demands. More than 10 lakh employees from departments like Railways, insurance and postal services are going to participate in it. We also have plans to launch an indefinite strike in the month of July. Our aim is to get the Government to agree to our demands. Strike is our last resort. If the Government is ready to grant our demands, we are willing to reconsider our decision to conduct a strike.”

No Fund Allocation to 7th Pay Commission – Central Government Employees Protest


No Fund Allocation to 7th Pay Commission – Central Government Employees Protest

Employees of the Income Tax Department, located in Nungambakkam, launched a protest yesterday condemning the fact that the Central Budget had not allocated sufficient funds to the 7th Pay Commission.
A meeting was held at the Income Tax office premises yesterday by the Central Government Employees Sammelan, during which the recently announced budget was analyzed and criticized. The protests were led by the Sammelan’s general secretary, Duraipandi. While addressing the gathering, he said,

“The economic report submitted by the Government is not in favour of the masses. During the election campaigns, BJP promised to reduce inflation, bring back black money, and to eradicate unemployment.
“But the fact remains that even when the prices of petroleum and crude oil fell by nearly 50% around, the world, the Central Government had actually increased the excise tax and made sure that the benefits of falling global prices don’t reach the general public. The increase in service taxes led to an all-round increase in prices.

“While the Government reduces corporate taxes on cash-rich companies from 30% to 25, it provided no relief to the salaried classes. Allocations to social welfare, medicines, and education remain extremely insufficient. Moreover, sufficient funds were not allocated to the 7th Pay Commission. We are going to hold protests outside the Parliament on April 28 to protest this callous attitude of the Government, to object to its decision to not merge the dearness allowance and basic pay, and to demand immediate announcement of interim relief.”
