Com. S. K. Vyas Ji, the legendary leader of Central Government employees and Pensioners is no more. He passed away at about 08:20 PM on 13th February 2015 at a Jaipur (Rajasthan) hospital, where he was admitted a few days back after a massive heart attack. He was recovering, but all of a sudden, the situation worsened and he passed away. He was 85 years. His funeral took place at Jodhpur, his native place, on 14th February 2015.

Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers for forty years from 1967 to 2006. He was the President and Secretary General of All India Audit & Accounts Association for a long time. He continued as an Advisor of the Confederation and also as the General Secretary of National Coordination Committee of Pensioners (NCCP) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death.

Com. Vyas Ji has lead various struggles and strike actions of the Central Government Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first strike action of the Central Government Employees after Independence, in the year 1960. Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service. He played an important role in rallying the Central Government employees alongwith the striking Railway employees in the year 1974. He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and standing committee. He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Government employees. The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Government employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership. The Confederation of Central Government Employees & workers representing 1.5 million civil servants was in the forefront of the incessant struggles and strike actions organised by the Indian working class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Com. Vyas Ji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement of India.

Com. Vyasji was the friend, Philosopher, guide and everything for the Central Government employees movement. In the more than six decades long trade union life, Com. Vyasji endeared himself to every section of the Central Government employees. His death is an irreparable and irreplaceable  loss to us. He was a great leader, symbol of simplicity, a gem of a person and a leader who is down to earth. Extremely polite, kind hearted and compassionate. One of the finest human being, tallest leader, a gentle mentor and a legend.

The National Secretariat of the Confederation bows its head down before the memory of the legendary leader and dips our flag paying tearful tribute to this valiat fighter of the Trade Union movement. While paying homage to this stalwart, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family members and also to the entire Central Government employees fraternity.

He is in our hearts! His memories will be forever with us! His long saga of struggle for the cause of the employees and workers will inspire the generations to come.

The Economic Times  17.2.2015

NEW DELHI: Supreme Court has prescribed that a government employee cannot be kept under suspension for over 90 days in the absence of a charge sheet against him as such persons "suffer the ignominy of insinuations, the scorn of society and the derision of their Department".

Observing that "protracted period of suspension of delinquent government employee has become a norm", a bench of Justices Vikramajit Sen and C Nagappan said suspension, specially preceding formulation of charges, was essentially transitory or temporary in nature and must be of short duration.

"If it is for an indeterminate period or if its renewal is not based on sound reasoning contemporaneously available on the record, this would render it punitive in nature," it said.

Dwelling on the issue, the bench observed that "the suspended person suffering the ignominy of insinuations, the scorn of society and the derision  of his Department, has to endure this excruciation even before he is formally charged with some misdemeanor, indiscretion or offence.

"His torment is his knowledge that if and when charged, it will inexorably take an inordinate time for the inquisition or inquiry to come to its culmination, that is to determine his innocence or iniquity.

"Much too often this has now become an accompaniment to retirement. Indubitably the sophist will nimbly counter that our Constitution does not explicitly guarantee either the right to a speedy trial even to the incarcerated, or assume the presumption of innocence to the accused," the bench said.

Accordingly, it directed that "the currency of a suspension order should not extend beyond three months if within this period the Memorandum of Charges/ Charge sheet is not served on delinquent officer/employee; if Memorandum of Charges/Charge sheet is served a reasoned order must be passed for the extension of the suspension."

The apex court's judgement came on a petition by defence estate officer Ajay Kumar Choudhary, who was suspended in 2011 for allegedly issuing wrong no-objection certificates for the use of approximately four acres of land in Kashmir.
Based on the findings given in the verdict, it said the officer can challenge his continued suspension.

"So far as the facts of the present case are concerned, the Appellant has now been served with a Charge sheet and therefore, these directions may not be relevant to him any longer.  "However, if the Appellant is so advised he may challenge his continued suspension in any manner known to law, and this action of the Respondents will be subject to judicial review," the bench said.
