Every communications made during this State Level Convention has been very much a sort of cordial interactive programme rather than mere individual speeches. The deliberations were solely concentrating on the issue of Government’s reluctance to grant G.O.I Pension 1972 to the employees of N.V.S. During such deliberations the following decisions have been formed during the State Level Convention.

It has been unanimously agreed that all the employees of N.V.S Pune Region irrespective of their category and designation should come under one banner i.e, of Joint Action Committee of .NVS Employees, to fight for the legitimate ‘RIGHT’ of pension. Every participants at the convention is expected to convey this very important message at their respective units and offices.

The convention appreciated the activities and decisions so far taken by the National Level JAC, and decided to render unwavering support to them.

The convention assessed the outcome of peaceful methods adopted by the employees of the Samiti for getting G.O.I Pension. It has been observed that a lot of crystal clear representations quoting supportive rules and clauses as well as proof of discrimination, to the H.R.D Ministry, observing Hunger Work Day on Teachers’ Day, meeting with H.R.D Minister ..etc, have not prompted the government to call us for any negotiations. We are not even answered “what makes us ineligible for pension? and 10% Special Allowance to Non-teaching staff of JNVs”. Hence, it is decided that an overwhelming support to the Mass Rally on 9th Nov. in New Delhi and an unwavering solidarity to the token strike scheduled on 16th Nov. must be ensured from JAC Pune Region.

The “Black Badge Days” for the employees of NVS Pune Region has been inaugurated. Every participants in the convention wore the badges in protest against Government’s deaf ear towards us. It has been decided that in every units and at R.O Pune, every employees will be issued with the badges and will wear the same till Nov. 7th, 2009 not only in the office premises but also at wherever they move.

Each units under the inspiration of the Principals will ensure maximum participation at the Mass Rally in New Delhi.They ought to prepare and carry a banner on white cloth/flex in the size of 6’x3’. The following matter should be got printed on the banner. – “MASS RALLY OF EMPLOYEES OF NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA SAMITI FOR GRANT OF THEIR RIGHT TO GET G.O.I. PENSION 1972” Besides, as many number of posters and placards as possible, with slogans demanding pension and 10% Special allowance to the non – teaching staff should also be carried. Examples of slogans “OUR DEMAND –


Further it is decided that if the govt. fails to make favourable considerations in the matter of pension and allowance, without any second thought each units under Pune Region will go for a day’s Token Strike in full swing, closing even the Mess. The food for the students may be managed by making it a Parent’s visiting day and asking them to bring food for their wards and Migrated students and thus making them too aware of our plight.

While discussing the formation of State Level and Regional Level J.A.C., it has been learned that to get recognition and legal support from the respective department, for any union or committee, following aspects are to be ensured.
1.Minimum 50% of the total strength of the employees needs to be registered members of the union.
2.Personal consent of the employee needs to be obtained by way of filling up the membership form.
3.Each members of the union should be issued with an identity card.
4. Monthly contribution as decided in the bylaw must be paid regularly by the members.

In this context, Mr. R.T. Lad, the Principal, J.N.V Kolhapur and Mr. Maindarge, the Principal, J.N.V Pune, have voluntarily agreed to take up this task for Pune Region.

It is decided that each units will form a unit level JAC comprising representatives from all category of employees, before the end of November2009. Later these unit level office bearers will be assembling at Regional/State Level to elect actual office bearers for the State Level / Regional Level JAC’s.
