Various Demands of CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES - Minister explained in Parliament

Various Demands of CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES - Minister explained in Parliament

The below explanation was given by the Minister Shri.V.Narayanasamy in Lok Sabha on 5th May 2013 regarding the various demands of Central Government employees.

"The Government has in operation a Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) scheme and as per the scheme of JCM, this Department deals with staff side on the National Council (JCM). The JCM scheme is for promoting harmonious relations and of securing the greatest measure of cooperation between the Government, in its capacity as employer and the general body of its employees in matters of common concern and deals with issues and demands raised by the staff side. Regular interactions are held at requisite levels to address the concerns of Government employees.

A meeting was convened by Union Minister of Labour & Employment with the representatives of Central Trade Unions (CTUs) on the 13th February, 2013 to discuss the charter of demands and call for all India strike given by the Central Trade Unions on 20th and 21st February, 2013. Subsequently, a Group of Ministers (GoM) held a meeting with the representatives of the major CTUs on 18th February, 2013. The Union representatives were assured that Government is serious on the demands related to working class and taking all possible measures to redress them. An appeal was issued to them to withdraw the strike.

Government has taken various measures to address the concerns raised by the trade unions. These relate to huge amount spent on food subsidy to ensure availability of food grains to the poor at very concessional rate through the Public Distribution System, the Food Security Bill to further increase the availability of subsidized food grains to the larger segments of the population. National Employment Policy has been prepared by the Ministry of Labour & Employment to ensure inclusive and equitable growth process, so as to achieve the goal of remunerative and decent employment for all women and men in the labour force. The Government has enacted Unorganised Workers’ Social Security Act, 2008 and has also set up Nation Social Security Fund (NSSF) with a corpus of Rs.1000 crore. National Social Security Board has also been constituted which is advising the Government from time to time on Social Security Schemes. Action to amend the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970 is underway wherein it is, inter-alia, proposed that in case where the contract labour perform the same or similar kind of work as the workmen directly appointed by the principal employer, the wage rates, holidays, social security provisions of contract labour shall be the same as are available to the directly appointed workmen on the roll of principal employer. Further, a Bill is being brought before the Parliament to amend the Minimum Wages Act, 1948 to provide a National Floor Level Minimum Wage".

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Directorate' O.M of even number dated 6th December 2012 notifying the revised rates of damages to be chargeable from unauthorized occupants of General Pool Residential Accommodation (GPRA) from 1st January 2013. The revised rates were different for Central and Non-Central localities as well as for higher and lower types at the same station. It was also noticed that for some categories, the revised rates were very high, in some cases, even more than the basic pay of the eligible officers. The rates revised vide above- said OM have been reviewed on receipt of feed-back from the allottees and it is felt that the concept of Central/Non-Central area at the same station is discriminatory and should be done away with.



2. In view of above, it has been decided to revise the rates of damages notified vide OM dated 6th December 2012 as per Annexure at a uniform rate of 55 times of normal rate of licence fee in respect of Type-VII and Type-VIII, 50 times of the normal rate of licence fee in respect of Type-IV(Spl) to Type-VI and 40 times of the normal rate of licence fee in respect of Type-I to Type-IV categories of accommodation irrespective of the Central/Non-Central/area in all metropolitan cities except Mumbai for which separate rates have been given in the Annexure.



3. The revised rates being notified vide this OM shall be effective from 1st January 2013 and will be valid till 31.3.2014 or till further orders. The rates of damages will automatically get revised as and when the rate of normal licence fee under FR 45-A is revised. In cases, where higher rates have been charged between 1st January 2013 till notification of new rates, the same may be adjusted/refunded.



4. In respect of other departmental pools of accommodation in Delhi/other stations, the rates of damages prescribed for GPRA shall be adopted by such other Ministries/Departments. Similar rates of damages are to be worked out by the CPWD for other stations wherever GPRA is available and the rates so worked out are to be adopted for recovery of damages in respect of GPRA as well as departmental pool of accommodation at these stations. Where there is no GPRA, the concerned Ministry/Department have to get suitable unit rate worked out by the CPWD/local PWD.



5. This issues with the concurrence of Integrated Finance Wing of the Ministry of Urban Development under its Diary No. 169/US(D.IV)/FD/13 dated 31.05.2013.



6. This supersedes this Directorate's OM of even number dated 6th December 2012.
