KOLLAM:  Kerala Gazetted Officers Federation (KGOF) is starting its 19th state summit here on Friday.

The three-day event at TM Varghese Hall would be inaugurated by CPI state secretary Kanam Rajendran. The chairman of the reception committee and district secretary of CPI, R Ramachandran said that the salaries were not raised in tandem with the rise in inflation. KGOF demanded a 30% hike in salary and as an immediate measure demanded a 20 pc hike in the interim period. State general secretary of KGOF said that the organisation would be discussing the protest methods against the government move to extend the salary revision indefinitely.

 It reiterated its demand for the establishment of state civil service, resume the recruitment process and make the transfers a transparent process. Though the decision by the government to establish Kerala Administrative Service could be considered as a partial victory, the current chief secretary had put the decision in cold storage, said Saji Kumar.  It demanded the reinstatement of statutory pension scheme and to unify the pension age to 60. It also demanded that the medical insurance be on the lines of accident insurance for employees and their dependents. The summit concludes on May 24 with a seminar.
