MACP Scheme – treatment of employees appointed through LDCE/GDCE against Promotee Quota vacancies at par with those selected against DR/LDCE quota vacancies —reg.
 
NFIR General Secretary Shri.M.Raghavaiah has written to Railway Board regarding that one more anomaly has been created in MACP Scheme, when implemented to the employees appointed through LDCE/GDCE against promotee quota vacancies at par with those selected against DR/LDCE quota vacancies…
We have reproduced the full content of the letter and given below for your information:

(Affiliated to Indian National Trade Union Congress)
No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt.6
Dated 19.11.2012
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
NEW DELHI
Dear Sir,
 
Sub: MACP Scheme – treatment of employees appointed through LDCE/GDCE against Promotee Quota vacancies at par with those selected against DR/LDCE quota vacancies —reg.
 
Ref: Railway Bord’s letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 12/09/2012.
 
NFIR wishes to invite attention of the Railway Board to yet another anomaly that has been created causing resentment among staff as a result of issuance of letter under reference. In this connection, NFIR furnishes following illustration for rectification and issuing justified instructions: -
 
2. ‘A’ has joined as SCP in Traffic Dept in the year 1997. He appeared for the selection to the post of ASM through LDCE against PRQ and got posted as ASM in the year 2000. Another employee ‘B’ has joined as Helper in C & W Cadre in the year 1998. He appeared for the selection to the post of ASM through GDCE against DR quota and got posted as ASM during the year 2002.
 
‘A’ will be getting his II MACP in the year 2010 to Grade Pay Rs.4200/-
‘B’ will be getting his I MACP in the year 2012 to Grade Pay Rs.4200/-
‘A’ will be getting his III MACP in the year 2020 to Grade Pay Rs.4600/-
‘B’ will be getting his II MACP in the year 2022 to Grade Pay Rs.4600/-
‘A’ will not be getting MACP to Grade Pay Rs.4800/-
But ‘B’ will be getting his III MACP in the year 2032 to Grade Pay Rs.4800.
 
3. Here an employee entered Railway service later and got selected as ASM later will be getting higher Grade Pay than another employee who entered in Railway service earlier and got selected as ASM earlier. This will constitute a serious anomaly and lead to injustice to the seniors.
Keeping in view the situation as highlighted above which Railway employees will be encountering quite frequently, the NFIR, therefore, urges the Railway Board to issue suitable clarificatory instructions so that Railway employees who happened to be senior do not face unnecessary hardships. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the NFIR.
Yours faithfully,

Central Government Staffs will go on one day’s strike on 12.12.12

Central Government Staffs will go on one day’s strike on 12.12.12



The Organising Secretary Mr.P.S.Prasad posted on the official blog of AICGWBEA regarding the matter of one day strike on 12.12.2012.

To
All General Secretaries/CEC Members
AICGWBEA
Comrade,

The Confederation of Central Government Employees has given the call for One day Strike on 12.12.12 in connection with 15 charter of demands. The AICGWBEA has endorsed the call of the Confederation of Central Government Employees.

The major demands include setting up of 7th CPC, rectification of anomalies, rectification of DA formula, grant of transport allowances for all field persons, revise tour ta/da etc.

Comrades the base year of DA formula has been changed from 1.1.2006 to 2001 index, this 2001 index has proved that instead of getting 175% DA we are receiving only 72% DA. Actual prices have risen by over 200% from past 6 years. This is because of the fact that faulty DA formula and wrong calculation of Consumer Price Index (CPI).The fixation of ratio between wholesale prices and retail prices as 1:1.2 instead of 1:1.6 as retail prices is more than 60% of the whole sale prices and also that prices are taken from rural post offices that is 60% less than urban places. for example if prices of kilo of rice is Rs 15 as per CPI as in rural post office, actual prices is Rs 35 per kilo of rice. hence the actual DA we are denied.

The Banks, LIC & PSU wages are revised every 5 years. Many of the allowances are not revised from past 15 years or so. even the 6th CPC pay anomalies are not rectified even after 6 years.

Hence it is high time that the AICGWBEA leaders take up the issues with members by calling the General Body Meeting and explain to them about the 15 charter of demands and on 19th November serve the strike notice to Head of Office.They should also participate rallys organized by local COC.
Comradely yours
P.S.Prasad

Sub: Deprivation of all the Central Pay Commission benefits in terms of pay revisions and pensionary benefits, suffered by Pensioners born on 1.1.1946/1938/1928 owing to their retirements on 31.1 2.2005/I 995/1985 as a result of modification of FR 56 by the Ministry of Finance.
 
Respected Sir,
 
This Representation is submitted by ‘Bharat Pensioners Sarnaj’ on behalf of Pensioners born on 1/1/1946, 1/1/1938 and on 1/1/1928 to seek restoration of all the Central Pay Commission benefits in terms of pay revisions and pensionary benefits.

2. While modifying the then existing provision of FR 56(a) that every government servant shall retire from service on the afternoon of the last day of the month in which he attains the age of fifty eight years, it was provided on the 7th February, 1975 in Rule 56 (a) that a government servant whose date of birth is the first of a month shall retire from service on the afternoon of the last day of the preceding month on attaining the age of sixty years.
 
3. The proviso added by the Ministry of Finance singled orn the 1.1.1946/1938/1928-born pensioners, which deprived of the full Pay Commission benefits, which were granted to the rest of the pensioners, thus the application of the rule becoming bereft of the universality and uniformity maintained so far in keeping with upholding of a fundamental rule, It is a general principle that framing or amending of any statutory rule should be common to all retirees without exception and there should not be any discrimination.
 
4. It will be seen that the basic rule already stands relaxed by the Government itself consequent on its acceptance of the Third Central Pay Commission’s recommendation, by which all the government servants including those born on 1st of every month other than January, benefited, by way of extensions in their services besides the Sixth CPC Pay & Pension revision benifits, barring the 1st January-born governnent servants. While this initial relaxation has benefited the employees born on, 2nd of January and onwards and even 1st of every month other than January (which virtually means all the remaining 364 days of the year), as in their case their retirement as per the basic rule on the preceding day happened in the same year (post-2005), the relaxation was no applied in the case of the 1st January-born employees probably on ground that their retirement took place in the previous month and year(Pre-2006).
 
5. Actually, the relaxation of FR 56 should have been made in an equitable manner by treating the application of the basic rule, which stands amended, in consequential for the 1st January born employees also.
 
6. In response to a representation from a similarly affected 1/1/46-born pensioner, the Department of Expenditure seems to have made a stock observation that for any such revision, a line has to be drawn and wherever the line is drawn, there will be persons who retired on a previous day and would lose the benefits of pay revision, We strongly feel that this analogy may not hold good in flatters of pay & pension revisions consequent on the recommendation of Pay Commissions, since this happens not routinely but once in ten years as a measure of updating the pay & pensions, etc according to new economic conditions in the country and these recommendations encompass all government servants and there cannot be any exception by application of any extant rules, which are meant for only routine purposes.
 
7. Further, in regard to 1/1/46-born retirees it may be stated that they retired on the afternoon of the last day of the preceding month, i.e. 31/12/2005 consequent on a decision taken based on the Third CPC recommendation. This clubbed then with the other retirees who retired notionally on 31/12/2005. There is absolute need to provide an enabling provision, by adding another suitable provision under FR.56 (a), so that this category of pensioners, who have been left out for no fault of theirs — in fact it sounds as if they have been penalised for wrong-doing — can also avail the said benefits.
 
8. Thus there are several alternatives to remove the hardship being faced by the above-referred pensioners.
First, addition of second Proviso to FR.56 as prayed for in the Paragraph 7 and second is suitable amendment to the Government Resolution dated 29/8/2008, the third is to retire the 1 st January pensioners also on the 31st of the same month and the fourth is to grant 1st January born pensioners also to avail like the rest of the pensioners all the Pay Commission benefits, extension of services etc. by following the same principle as applied to Senior pensioners for grant of enhanced pension on attainment of 80 years, 85 years, etc. The best recourse will always be the removal altogether of the first proviso under this amended FR.
 
9. It will also be noticed that there is no proportionate reduction in enhanced pension for the particular month in which a pensioner attains the 81st/85th birthday irrespective of the date, ie. 1st day of the month or any other day of the month, he is paid full enhanced pension. In other words, there is no proportionate reduction for the part of the month during which the pensioner is below 80 years since the benefit has been made available for the whole month.
 
10. It is time to think of appropriate Administrative reforms to remove all such anomalous situation by the Govt. so that things can be put straight. They shall not view like yet another representation or grievance, but they need to take it as an improvement over the system that is prevailing. Such a right spirit will facilitate added repute to the HR based Administration of date. I think still many capable and positive oriented functionaries exist at top layer and hence the system keeps on and on in spite of all odd factors.
11. May I, therefore, request for a deep examination of the several issues raised here in above, with a view to finding a satisfactory and just solution to the hardship being faced by the pensioners referred to above?
 
Thanking you, Sir,
