Organise Organise and Organise

Dear Sir,

The right to work and the right to form and join an Association are human rights enshrined in the Declaration for Human Rights of the United Nations in 1948. Our Constitution was also provided this. The International Labour Organization  holds that the labour can never be treated as a commodity.

We, the Gazetted Officers are human beings and should be treated as such, in the workplace also. We have the right to a fair and equitable salary and to the best possible security and safety at work.  The Confederation of Central Government Gazetted Officers Organizations  is devoted to building Gazetted Officers’ power and believes that the best way to strength is to organize, organize and organize.

The basis of the Confederation is solidarity. When we form an Association we give each other a mutual promise. We promise that we will never work on less favorable terms or at a lower salary than we have agreed to. Together we are strong. Together we can make demands and make the model employer listen to us. And the more numbers we have, the greater is our opportunity to improve our conditions through collective bargaining and influence at the workplace and society as a whole. We must always be  efficient  in our Association work.

Build Strong State level CCGGOO in all States

Gazetted Officers! Come forward and organise strong State level CCGGOO and show your solidarity with the Gazetted Officers Cause.

To achieve Grievance Redressal Machinery for the Gazetted Officers,  
strong state level CCGGOO

Dear Sir, 

"With all their faults, trade unions have done more for humanity than any other organisation of men that ever existed. They have done more for decency, for honesty, for education, for the betterment of the race for the developing of character in man, than any other association of men" 

Men don't and can't live by exchanging articles, but by producing them. They don't live by trade, but by work. Work with self respect. Where trade unions are most firmly organized, there are the rights of the people most respected.

Yes! To achieve this we have to organise and strengthen the Confederation of Central Government Gazetted Officers Organisations (CCGGOO). 

For ensuring that our self respect is not lost we have to organise the State Level CCGGOO. 

To resist  the onslaught on our respect, 

To oppose the abuse of 56 J, 

To Get a grievance redressal machinery to Gazetted Officers, 

To Get Anomaly committee to Gazetted Officers, 

To get Bonus for Gazetted Officers, 

To remove the grading as"very Good" as Bench mark for promotion and financial up gradation, 

To Get MACP benefit in the promotional hierarchy, 

To Oppose the privatisation of Railways, CPWD  and disinvestment in PSU, 

To oppose the indiscriminate closure of ordnance Factories, 

To increase the minimum wage and to increase the multiplying factor, 

To Get common minimum entry level pay to the Gazetted Officers, 

To get time bound promotion to Gazetted Goup B Cadre, 

An effective tool, a fighting mechanism, a strong organisation for the Gazetted officer is the Confederation of Central Government Gazetted Officers Organisation. 

To strengthen the CCGGOO, formation of State Level CCGGOO is imperative and urgent. 

Gazetted Officers, Please respond; come forward to build a strong State Level CCGGOO in all states.

Allowances Committee


The Committee on Allowances headed by Shri Ashok Lavasa, Finance Secretary and Secretary (Expenditure) submitted its Report to the Union Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley yesterday; The Report will be now placed before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) to firm-up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet. 

The Committee on Allowances, constituted by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India to examine the 7th CPC recommendations on Allowances, submitted its Report to the Union Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley yesterday. The Committee was headed by Shri Ashok Lavasa, Finance Secretary and Secretary (Expenditure),M/o Finance, Government of India and had Secretaries of Home Affairs, Defence, Health & Family Welfare, Personnel & Training, Post and Chairman, Railway Board as its Members and Joint Secretary (Implementation Cell) as its Member Secretary.

The Committee was set-up in pursuance of the Union Cabinet decision on 29.06.2016 when approving the 7th CPC recommendations on pay, pensions and related issues were approved. The decision to set-up the Committee was taken in view of significant changes recommended by the 7th CPC in the allowances structure and a large number of representations received in this regard from various Staff Associations as well as the apprehensions conveyed by various Ministries / Departments. The 7th CPC had recommended that of a total of 196 Allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

The Committee took note of all the representations received from various stakeholders on the 7th CPC recommendations on Allowances. Representations and demands for modifications were received in respect of 79 allowances which have been examined in detail by the Committee. In doing so, the Committee interacted with all the members of the Standing Committee of National Council (Staff Side), Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) as well the representatives of various Staff Associations of Railways, Postal employees, Doctors, Nurses, and Department of Atomic Energy. It also interacted with the representatives of the Defence Forces, DGs of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) namely CRPF, CISF, BSF, ITBP, SSB, and Assam Rifles as also senior officers from IB and SPG to understand the viewpoint of their personnel.  As mentioned in the Report, the Committee held a total of 15 meetings and was assisted by a Group of Officers headed by Additional Secretary (D/o Expenditure) in examining the representations. 

Based on such extensive stakeholder consultations and detailed examination, the Committee has suggested certain modifications in the 7th CPC recommendations so as to address the concerns of the stakeholders in the context of the rationale behind the recommendations of the 7th CPC as well as other administrative exigencies. Modifications have been suggested in some allowances which are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories such as Railway men, Postal employees, Scientists, Defence Forces personnel, Doctors and Nurses etc.

The Report, now being examined in the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance, will be placed before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) set-up to screen the 7th CPC recommendations and to firm-up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet. It may be recalled that while recommendations of the 7th CPC on pay and pension were implemented with the approval of Cabinet, allowances continue to be paid at old rates. After consideration by the E-CoS, the proposal for implementation of 7th CPC recommendations on Allowances after incorporating the modifications suggested by the Committee on Allowances in its Report shall be placed before the Cabinet for approval.
