CIRCULAR NO. 10                                                                                      DATED – 29.11.2013


GET READY FOR STRIKE


CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT DECIDES TO ORGANIZE PHASED AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES CULMINATING IN STRIKE


NO COMPROMISE ON THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF 7th CPC SUBMITTED BY THE STAFF SIDE


1.         The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers met at New Delhi on 28.11.2013 and reviewed the situation arising out of the Government’s announcement of Seventh Central Pay Commission and the subsequent developments thereon.

2.         Eventhough Government has announced constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission, the appointment is yet to take place. In the meanwhile one round of discussion was held with Secretary, DOP&T on terms of reference. Subsequently, the staff side, JCM National Council has submitted a unanimous proposal on the items to be included in the terms of reference of the 7th CPC, which includes (i) date of effect as 01.01.2014 (2) merger of DA with pay (3) grant of interim relief (4) inclusion of GDS under the ambit of 7th CPC (5) statutory pension for those entered into service on or after 01.01.2004 (6) settlement of anomalies of 6th CPC (7) cashless/hassle-free medicare facilities etc.

Government while announcing the 7th CPC has made it clear that the date of effect will be 01.01.2016. Further nothing has been mentioned about DA merger and interim relief. Regarding GDS the declared stand of the Government is that GDS are not civil servants and in the past also every time when CPC is appointed, the Government refused to include them in the Pay commission. Last time also inspite of the strong protest and agitational programmes conducted by NFPE and Postal JCA, the Government has appointed a bureaucratic committee. Regarding statutory pension to those who entered into service on or after 01.01.2004, the Government’s stand is well known and it may refuse to include this item also in the terms of reference.

This being the position, our past experience shows that unless and until the demands raised in the staff side proposal submitted to Government on terms of reference of the CPC is backed by serious agitational programmes, rallying the entire Central Government Employees and create compulsion on the Government to accept our justified stand, there is every possibility of Government rejecting the above proposal.

Further all of us are aware that the political situation in the country is gradually getting in election mode. This is bringing forth before the working class movement a crucial task of front-loading our class issues in the ensuring political battle. We have to keep in mind that the corporate class and corporate controlled media has started making effort for relegating the working class issues and the economic policy related issues in particular to the background. It is our duty to bring the demands of the working class to the fore-front and conduct intensive campaign against those policies and also against those who are supporting the neo-liberal globalization policies. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers being the part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class of our country has got an added responsibility to rally the entire Central Government Employees in the joint struggle against the anti-people and anti-worker policies of the Government which shall ultimately lead to a change in the political equation ensuring implementation of pro-people, pro-worker alternative policy.

Taking into Consideration all the above facts and circumstances, the National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers met at new Delhi on 28.11.2013 took a unanimous decision to go for strike if the Government refuse to accept the staff side proposal on terms of reference. Confederation further decided to organize series of phased programme of action and campaign from now onwards so that the employees will be ready to go for strike on short notice.

It is further decided that Confederation shall not go for any compromise on the demands raised in the proposal submitted by the JCM Staff side on terms of reference of 7th CPC.

R.S. Gujral, is likely to be appointed Member-Secretary of the 7th Pay Commission

The Central  Government is likely to notify the the pay commission within the next two months The timing is in such a way that it is well before the model code of conduct for the general elections comes into force. Such a move will bring a positive mood for the central government employees towards the government.Additionally the Center is expected to give the panel enough time to prepare its report in the hope that the government would be a lot more comfortable vis-a-vis the fiscal deficit by the time the panel submits its report.Government employees have also asked the Center to consider merging dearness allowance with their pay, arguing that the Sixth Pay Commission, like the Centre, could not have anticipated the high inflation that has eroded real wages over the last decade. The demand was made at a preliminary meeting held between the department of personnel and the employee representatives to discuss the proposed Seventh Pay Commission. It is learnt that the present Secretary Expenditure, R S Gujral, is likely to be appointed Member-Secretary of the 7th Pay Commission. The 1976 batch IAS officer of Haryana cadre Gujral is retiring on November 30th  2013. Shri Gujral was also Secretary ( Revenue) and having sufficient experience on functioning of CBEC & CBDT.

The problems were reiterated through a resolution during last 88th Annual Conference of AIRF held in December, 2012 at Vishakhapattnam followed by subsequent representations at different levels. Subsequently AIRF in its Working Committee had to decide to conduct Strike Ballot. The Railway Board at the Apex level had held a negotiation with AIRF on the Charter of Demands on 23.08.2013 and certain issues were resolved.

 The Govt. had placed the PFRDA Bill on the floor of Parliament on 3rd September, 2013. All the Unions affiliated to AIRF throughout the country has registered protest through various means against the PFRDA Bill. But brushing aside the opposition the Govt. have passed the Bill on the floor of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. The same is now waiting for the ascent of the President.

The General Council meeting of AIRF held at New Delhi on 13th September deliberated on the whole issues and decided to conduct Strike Ballot throughout the country on 20th & 21st December, 2013.

The Govt. have announced appointment of 7th Pay Commission on 25th September, 2013. The Railway Board have issued orders of restructuring of certain Gr. ‘C’ categories on 8th October, 2013.

The committee was appointed on 25.05.2011 after repeated representations. The committee has since submitted its report to the Railway Board on 23.08.2012. The recommendation of the Committee is far from satisfaction and the problems need to be addressed.

After reviving the whole situation, the 89th Annual Conference of All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) held at Patna from 22nd to 24th November, 2013 demands on the Ministry of Railways and the Govt. of India to have negotiated settlements on all the following issues, failing which AIRF would be compelled to conduct Strike Ballot on 20th & 21st December, 2013.

Central Government workers want DA to be merged : Pay Commission could be notified over the next two months

Central Government workers want DA to be merged : Pay Commission could be notified over the next two months


Govt workers want DA to be merged with salary

Government employees have asked the Centre to consider merging dearness allowance with their pay, arguing that the Sixth Pay Commission -- quite like the Centre -- could not have anticipated the high inflation that has eroded real wages over the last decade.

Since 2006 – when the recommendations of the last pay commission came into force – the dearness allowance has increased to 90%, a reflection of the high inflation environment that employees have to cope up with.

The demand was made at a preliminary meeting held between the department of personnel and the employee representatives to discuss the proposed Seventh Pay Commission announced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in September.

Congress media department chief Ajay Maken had asked the Prime Minister to announce the next pay commission in March this year. Writing in his capacity as a cabinet minister, Maken had also argued for a liberal increase in the salaries of government officials to attract and retain talent.

Representatives of government employees weren’t as optimistic.


Umraomal Purohit, secretary, staff side, however, did stress on the merger of dearness allowance (DA) with the basic pay. Purohit said that the sixth pay commission did not recommend merger as they could not have anticipated a high rate of inflation which resulted in employees being granted a 90% rate of DA.

Purohit and other representatives also emphasised that a system should be put in place to ensure that anomalies created due to recommendations of pay commissions should be resolved within a year of the implementation of the report.

Government sources said the pay commission could be notified over the next two months or so, well before the model code of conduct for the general elections kicks in. Also, the Centre is expected to give the panel enough time to prepare its report in the hope that the government would be a lot more comfortable vis-a-vis the fiscal deficit by the time the panel submits its report.

Deletion of the name of ineligible Dependent & Opting out of the CGHS Scheme

Deletion of the name of ineligible Dependent & Opting out of the CGHS Scheme

Text of DGHS No. D.12011/2/78-DESK –II, dt. 7.4.1978 

Govt. Servant responsible for Deletion of the name of an ineligible Dependent
The undersigned is directed to state that in accordance with the definition of ‘family’ mentioned in Ministry of Health Memo. No. F.6(1) 1-54-H, dated the Ist May, 1954 the family of a beneficiary for the purpose of CGHS scheme includes husband/wife of the CGHS card-holder, as the case may be, wholly dependent children or step-children and parents, who are mainly dependent on and residing with the Government Servant. While it is incumbent upon the card issuing. Authorities, i.e. various departments and offices participating in the scheme, to ensure that the names of only genuine and eligible persons are included in the CGHS token cards, it is the responsibility of the employees concerned to apply for a deletion of the name of the dependent from the CGHS card, when the ward is no more entitled to the benefit eligible under the scheme. The failure on the part of a cardholder to get the name of a child deleted from the CGHS token-card when he is no more dependent on him is a good and sufficient reason for initiating disciplinary proceedings against him in terms of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965.

All Ministers/Departments of the Government of India are requested kindly to ensure that the above said provisions are complied with fully. These instructions may also be brought to the notice of all employees concerned.

Opting out of the C.G.H. Scheme

Spouse employed outside Central Government and availing Medical Facilities provided by his/her Employer

Central Government Servants covered under Central Govt. Health Scheme and whose spouse is employed in Defence or Railway Services, State Government or Corporations or Bodies financed partly or wholly by the Central or State Government, Local Bodies and private organizations which provide medical facilities to the employees and their family members, can opt out of the CGH Scheme and avail medical facilities so provided by the above mentioned organizations.

It is to be ensured that neither of the two nor their family members avail medical facilities from both the sources at the same time and for this purpose, the concerned Central Government employee shall give an undertaking to the authority issuing the CGHS Card.

Re-admission under CGHS after ‘opting out’
Such Government Servants, who have opted out of CGHS, may apply for readmission and avail the benefit of CGHS in case their spouse dies or resigns or is dismissed from the office/organization, which provided medical facilities.

Availability of ‘Opting Out’ Facility
The facility of opting out of CGHS can only be availed twice during the whole service career of the employee. Administrative Ministry/Department shall record the same by making an entry in the employee’s Service Book.

NMC urges PM to appoint chairman of 7th Pay Commission

The National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) today urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to immediately appoint chairman and other members of the recently-announced 7th Pay Commission at the next cabinet meeting.

"We urge the PM to appoint Chairman and other members of the 7th Pay Commission and take decision in this regard at the next cabinet meeting as employees and pensioners will be entitled for pay commission with effect from January 1, 2011," NMC president Subash Shastri said while addressing a workers' rally here today.

He said discussion should be started with representatives of both central and state government employees.

The NMC president said early notification for appointing chairman and other members of the commission is the need of the hour, which is bound to have bearing on about one crore employees and pensioners.

Subject: Release of new functionality to process 'Withdrawal Request' for subscribers exiting NPS

All Nodal Offices are hereby informed that the first phase of the functionality to process 'Withdrawal Request' for subscribers exiting NPS has been released in CRA system. The functionality is being released in different phases.

The Nodal Offices are requested to note the following:

  • Irrespective of whether the Withdrawal request is generated by the subscriber or Nodal Office, the physical Withdrawal request (consisting of Withdrawal Request Form generated from the CRA system after submission of the request in the CRA system duly signed by the subscribers or claimants, KYC documents and other relevant supporting documents) is to be forwarded to CRA by the concerned Nodal Office.

  •  The Withdrawal Request Form as well as supporting documents is to be attested by the Nodal Office forwarding the document. The Checklist for documents collected is enclosed as Annexure I.

ORDER

Whereas the Central Secretariat Stenographers Service Private Secretary Grade (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) Regulations, 2010 provide that for being eligible to appear in the Private Secretary Grade (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) any regular Personal Assistant of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service (CSSS) possessing a Bachelor’s Degree from a recognized University, on the crucial date, inter-alia, should satisfy the following condition :-

He/She should have rendered not less than three years’ of approved and continuous service in the grade.
Provided that if he/she had been appointed to the Personal Assistant of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service on the results of the competitive examination, including a Limited Departmental Competitive Examination, such an examination should have been held not Less than three years before the crucial date and he/she should have rendered not less than two years approved and continuous service in that grade.

2. And whereas, in pursuance to the notice for the Combined Section Officers/Stenographers’ (Grade- B/Grade-I) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) 2012 & 2013, representations from PAs of CSSS appointed to  the grade through LDCE mode were received in this Department seeking relaxation in the eligibility criteria to appear in the Private Secretary Grade Limited Departmental Competitive Examination, 2012 and 2013.

3. And whereas, on examination of the representations it was observed that the LDC Examination 2009 and 2010 for promotion to the grade of PAs were conducted by the Staff Selection Commission on 5th July, 2009 and 4th July, 2010 respectively. The crucial date for counting of three years of length of service for eligibility criterion for PS Grade LDCE, 2012 and 2013 being 1st JuLy, 2012 and 1st July, 2013 respectively, the PAs appointed through LDCE mode on the basis of the said examinations are thus not eligible for appearing in the PS Grade LDCE 2012 and 2013.

4. And whereas, it was further observed that the PAs appointed to the Grade through Seniority Quota for SL Years 2009 and 2010 are eligible as per the provision for appearing in the PS grade LDC Examination 2012 and 2013 whereas the PAs of 2009 and 2010 appointed through LDCE mode do not fulfill the said eligibility criteria despite some of them being placed higher in the ranking in the Select Lists, 2009 and 2010 of PA Grade.  It was noted that the said provision in eligibility criterion of the said examination unduly places the PAs who have been appointed as regular PAs through the mode of LDC Examination of 2009 and 2010 at disadvantage.

5. And Now, therefore, it has been decided in consultation with the UPSC, as provided under Rute 23 of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service Rules 2010, to give one time relaxation in the condition relating to the eligibility criterion of regular Personal Assistants appointed through LDCE, contained in the Regulation 4 (i) of Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service Private Secretary Grade (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) Regulation, 2010, for appearing in the Private Secretary Grade LDCE, 2012 and 2013 of CSSS. Consequently regular PAs of CSSS appointed through the results of LDCE for the years 2009 and 2010 will be eligible to appear in the Combined Section Officers/Stenographers’ (Grade-B/Grade-I) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination 2012 & 2013 (Category —IV, PS Grade of CSSS) respectively to be conducted by UPSC.
