On 07/12/2023 (Thursday), a virtual meeting of AICPA and AIACE was held on Zoom platform to take stock of the situation on the Pay conflict of Executives, Pension of retirees and Medical issues of Executives and employees.
Shri. P.K. Singh Rathor, Convenor, AIACE/AICPA welcomed the members and requested Shri R.B. Mathur, President, AIACE, to preside over the meeting. He also welcomed Shri Abdul Kalam. He requested Dr. B.K. Srivastva to give a summary of activities during the past few months.
Dr. Srivastva informed that Convenor had met Chairman as well as Director (P&IR), CIL on 16th October, 2023, and appraised them of the issues being faced by the working and retired executives and employees. The main issues are pay conflict arising out of NCWA-XI, revision of pension and CPRMS for executives and non-executives. Both, the Chairman and Director (P&IR) listened the issues and assured that action will be taken soon on these issues and requested the association to withdraw the notice of demonstration scheduled for 30th October, 2023.

Cess of Rs.10/MT (proposed to be increased to Rs.20/MT), which is at present voluntary, it should be as a percentage of the sale price of coal to improve the financial position of the Pension Fund.
