 No. Confd./Circular-2020                                                             Dated : 17th October-2020








Dear Comrades,

This year's Bonus to Central Government Employees is not yet declared by the Central Government.  Normally, every year Bonus is declared before the second week of October. We suspect some hidden agenda behind the deliberate delay on the part of the Government.  From 1978 onwards Central Government Employees are paid Bonus without any interruption. Bonus is a product of historic strike of Railway employees under the banner of Railway Federations and other Central Government Employees under the banner of Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers. Any attempt to deny Bonus under any pretext cannot be tolerated. 

        Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers calls upon the entirety of Central Government Employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks to hold protest demonstrations all over India at all centres and also in front of all offices (observing Covid protocol) on 20th October 2020, Tuesday. Railway Federations have also given a similar call for protest demonstrations on 20.10.2020. Let us be ready for strike with short notice if circumstances demand.

                                                                             Yours fraternally,


R.N. Parashar

                                                            Secretary General

                                               Confederation of CGE &Workers
