YOUR  SALARY,  YOUR  OPTION ---  FIGHT  OF  NFPE, WEST BENGAL CIRCLE  HELD  HIGH  BY THE  DEPARTMENT 

     Finally, the  department has issued a speaking order clarifying that monthly salary has to be disbursed to the staff as per their own option, not through bank accounts by force. It completely depends upon the individual staff to choose among bank account, cheque or cash through which he/she opts to receive salary. With this, the fight of the NFPE Group of Unions, West Bengal Circle, has reached a victorious stand over the misinterpretation that account-payee salary is a must, which was being imposed upon us by a section of administration forcefully.
      The DA(P) Circle Union and the Administrative Union of West Bengal Circle especially fought head-on with this. Com. Sankar Bhattacharya, Circle Secretary, DA(P), has stopped taking salary since August 2014 in protest of the administrative whip. His Circle Union also filed a case at CAT, Calcutta Bench. During the last four-monthly meeting with the Chief PMG, West Bengal Circle, on 12.12.2014, our Circle Unions had a strong difference of opinion with the administrative side led by the Circle Head.  However, we are proud that under pressure, the department has to re-examine the matter and issue the order (given below) in recognition of the justification of our thought.
       We hope that from such incidents and many more earlier ones, the administration would better share views with staff side regarding rules and realities before exercising them unilaterally, which would save some precious time of the department.
