New Delhi – 110011
With due regards, it is submitted that this federation had been raising the issue in various forums like Departmental Council JCM, during the meeting with Hon’ble Defence Minister / Defence Secretary regarding extension of judicial pronouncement to similarly placed non-petitioners in service matters so that unnecessary litigations may be minimized.
25% of Highly Skilled grade posts will be placed in the grade of the Master Craftsman. They will, however, not be a part of the hierarchy.
(ii) Highly Skilled Grade II – 20.5 %
(iii) Highly Skilled Grade I – 20.5 %
(iv) Master Craftsman – 14 %
“12. On the Contrary the respondents have failed to convince us that the movement of the present applicants from HS to HS-I involved any assumption of higher responsibilities or that it was a movement from a lower feeder post with lower scale of pay to a higher post with higher scale of pay. On the contrary we find that movement from HS-II to HS-I after 01.01.2006, is justifyly termed as a promotion, as HS-II became feeder post to HS-I w.e.f. 01.01.2006. Similarly Skilled grade became the feeder grade to HS-II. But by no stretch of imagination erstwhile HS Grade can be called a feeder grade to HS-II or HS-I under the hierarchy created w.e.f. 1.1.06.
13. The respondents have thus failed to disclose the reason as to why the placement of erstwhile (pre 01.01.2006) Highly Skilled workers to highly Skilled Gr.-I in terms of seniority and Highly Skilled Gr.-II in the ratio of 50:50 due to restructuring of artisan cadre be treated as promotion. We find from a clarification dated 10.02.2000 that mobility under ACPs is to be allowed in the existing hierarchy. Any Selection Grade / in-situ promotion which is not a part of the hierarchy shall not be treated as promotion for the purpose of ACPs, which fully supports the applicants’ case.
14. Being not supported by any cogent reason we hold that the placement of erstwhile (pre 01.01.2006) HS to HS-I due to cadre restructuring effected on 13.12.2010 w.e.f. 01.01.2006, should not be treated as a promotion for the purpose of MACP. Consequently, we hold that the applicants shall be entitled to MACP.”
(i) Revision of Special Pay to Staff Nurse working in Operation Theatre- Special Pay has been granted to Nursing Staff @ Rs. 60/- per month who are working in (a) Operation Theatres, (b) Intensive Care Units of the Ordnance & Ordnance Equipment Factory Hospitals/Clinics vide MOD letter No. 7(2)/87/I/D(Fy.II), Dated 06th March, 1989. This Special Pay @ Rs. 60/- per month was being granted as per recommendations of 04th CPC. Subsequently, on the recommendations of 5th CPC the Special Pay @ Rs. 60/- per month was doubled to Rs. 120/- with effect from 01.08.1997 in the Ministry of Railways in terms of Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)I- 88/SP-1/MH-2, Dated 18.01.1990 & 25.01.1990. Further, Resolution adopted by Govt of India on the recommendations of 06th CPC which is published in the Gazette of India by Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) No. 1/1/2008-I.C. Dated 29th August, 2008, wherein Para 08 of Part-B states that Govt of India has accepted the 6th CPC recommendations of doubling of the Special Allowance and this allowance will be increased by 25% every time the Dearness Allowance payable on revised pay scales goes up by 50%BPMS Federation has raised this on 07.12.2011 but the matter is running between OFB & MOD due to piecemeal objections of Def (Fin).
(ii) Nursing Allowance to all Nurses working in Dispensaries- Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (Nursing Section) O.M. No. Z.28015/71/2008-N, Dated 19th Nov.2008 states that as per Resolution adopted by Govt of India on the recommendations of 06th CPC which is published in the Gazette of India by Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) No. 1/1/2008-I.C. Dated 29th August, 2008, the President has pleased to enhance the Nursing Allowance to Rs. 3200/- per month w.e.f. 01.09.2008 and the Nursing Allowance will be payable to all Nurses whether working in Dispensaries or in Hospitals.BPMS has raised this issue on 07.12.2011 but the matter has been referred to 07th CPC due to objections of Def (Fin).
(iii) Bunching benefit to Master Craftsmen (Excluding OFB) – MOD ID No. 11(5)/2009- D(Civ.I), Dated 14.06.2010 communicates that Master Craftsman will be granted the Grade Pay of Rs. 4200 in PB-2 w.e.f. 01.01.2006. Prior to above, the Master Craftsmen were in the pay scale of Rs. (4500 – 7000). While implementing the above order, all the MCMs who were drawing pre-revised pay at the stage of Rs. 4500 / 4625/ 4750 / 4875 / 5000 were fixed at Rs. 9300 plus GP 4200 w.e.f. 01.01.2006. This is contradictory to the provisions of CDS (RP) Rules, 2008 which stipulates as under:
7.(1) (A)(ii): if the minimum of the revised pay band /pay scale is more than the amount arrived at as per (i) above, the pay shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised pay band/pay scale;Provided further that:-
Where, in the fixation of pay, the pay of Government servants drawing pay at two are more consecutive stages in an existing scale gets bunched, that is to say, gets fixed in the revised structure at the same stage in the pay band, then, for every two stages so bunched, benefit of one increment shall be given so as to avoid bunching of more than two stages in the revised running pay bands.
“2. It is further clarified that the employees who had completed 12/24 years of service after 09.08.99 but before that the date of conducting the first trade test may be granted financial upgradation under ACP Scheme, subject to fulfillment of all other conditions prescribed for grant of ACP, from the date of their completion of 12/24 years of service, instead of the date of passing of this trade test, in the first attempt as a one time measure.” In spite of that Def(Fin) is not agree to conduct the trade test but make the same effective from the date of eligibility.
