leader of the Central Government Employees as well as the Secretary General of
BCPC and NCCPA Comrade S.K.Vyas passed away.
RED SALUTE TO COM SK VYAS!

Passing away of Com.
S. K. Vyas -An irreplaceable loss to Trade Union movement
With the passing away of Com. S.K.Vyas
on 13th February, at the age of 86, the Trade Union movement in
general and Central Government Employees and Pensioners’ movement in particular
have suffered an irreplaceable loss. In whatever capacities this stalwart of
Trade Union movement has served an imprint of his personality was indelibly
left behind. The All India Audit and Accounts Association owes its stature and
fighting potential to Vyasji who was the Secretary General from 1969 to 1981
and thereafter president up to 39th Conference at Chennai in
September 1989. He became the Secretary General of Confederation of Central
Government Employees and Workers when he was Additional Secretary General of
All India Audit and Accounts Association and continued as such up to 2006,
after which he became President. As he had an umbilical attachment to the
Central Government Employees he was made adviser to the organization. After retirement
on superannuation on 29th
February 1988 he took up the cause of Central Government Pensioners as the
Secretary General of National Co-ordination Committee of Central Government
Pensioners’ Association as well as Bharat Central Pensioners’ Confederation.
When we reminisce the yeoman
services rendered by Vyasji, we will be astounded at his encyclopedia and
knowledge and erudition in service matters and Trade Union movement. The way in
which he drafted Memoranda submitted to the various Pay Commissions was
marvelous and even the Chairmen of the Commissions could not find any loopholes
or irrationality in them. The vast knowledge coupled with impeccable integrity
and peerless courage of conviction and uncompromising nature on principles are
worthy of emulation. In agitations he stood like a General at the warfront and
never negotiated out of fear while he never feared to negotiate.
The loss of this colossus is
irreparable and the pensioners and employees are orphaned. While the mortal
remains of Vyasji will be consigned to flames at his ancestral house at Jodhpur, his immortal
memory will be perennial and an eternal source of inspiration to all of us.
