IMPORTANT CIRCULAR

CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT WILL MEET ON 23.10.2013 TO DECIDE FUTURE COURSE OF ACTION
STRIKE BALLOT DEFERRED
NO CHANGE IN THE CAMPAIGN PROGRAMME OF CONFEDERATION
OFFICE BEARERS

Dear Comrades,

            The National Secretariat of the Confederation congratulate the affiliates and State Committees for the strenuous efforts put in by them to propagate and campaign amongst the mass of the employees of the need for an immediate wage revision and setting up of the 7th CPC and enlist the massive participation of the Central Govt. employees for a long drawn out struggle, which commenced in 2011 and the first phase of which was culminated on 12th December, 2012 in a one day strike action.  We are proud of the fact that our efforts has borne fruit  as the Government  had to announce the setting up of the 7th CPC  on 25th. Confederation, as you are aware, had always been in the forefront in formulating demands of the CGEs, presenting and articulating the issues in spearheading struggles and negotiating the demands to reach settlement.  This time also Confederation was the organization which raised the setting up of the 7th CPC and wage revision; demanded that the 7th CPC’s recommendation must be effective from 1.1.2011; insisting that the tenure of the recommendation of the 6th CPC must be ended on the expiry of the five years on par with the wage tenure of the Public Sector undertaking workers as early as in 2010.  It could justify the demands with facts and figures of the unprecedented erosion of the real value of the wages of the Central Government employees due to the high rate of inflation in the economy and shooting up of the prices of all essential commodities.  The campaign and propaganda unleashed by us together had its salutary impact on the thinking process of other sister organizations, compelled them to take note of the growing discontent amongst the rank and file of their membership and to realize the fact that the wage structure had become incapable of making both ends meet especially for those employees at the lower levels of the hierarchy. They had to perforce take up the issue of wage revision  and setting up the 7th CPC due to the ambience created by the Confederation and its affiliates by organizing series of struggles during  the period and at the same time spurning every of our attempt for a joint action. We are quite aware that sanctions cannot be generated without joint and united action of the workers.  This dichotomy practiced by the predominant organizations in the JCM inflicted irreparable damage to the cause of the Central Government  employees.

We are happy that the Government of India having realized that the large majority of the Central Government employees have become mentally attuned to the path of an inevitable struggle on wage revision  decided to avert a confrontation by announcing the setting up of the 7th CPC.   We must, however, realize that the decision of the Government  tantamount to a post dated cheque which is capable of encashment only after a long period of two and half years.  We must not take it lying down.  The agony and sufferings of the employees, especially those at the lower levels cannot be mitigated by promises and assurances.  There must be a rise in their emoluments to make them capable of meeting the ever increasing cost of essential needs.  The Government must be told categorically and compelled to agree for the merger of DA with pay; and interim relief, which had all along been the case ever since the advent of the system of Pay Commission for wage revision.  We must bring home the fact that there will be no question of any arrears arising from the recommendation of the 7th CPC as the Commission is mandated to make its recommendation before the crucial date of 1st January, 2016.

Even though, it is stated that the terms of reference would be finalized in consultation with all stake holders, the question of inclusion of GDS within the ambit of the Pay Commission, in all probabilities would be resisted by the Government. In the light of the passage of the PFRDA Bill in the Parliament, the Government might not agree to include the retirement benefits in the terms of reference.  This apart, the Government will now refer all pending matters, be it at the National Anomaly Committee, National Council or various Departmental Councils  or taken up through inter departmental references  to the 7th CPC.  In other words for the next two and half years none of the issues of the CGEs will be either discussed or settled.  We must not allow the Government to succeed in this nefarious objective.

We must note that the present announcement of setting up of the 7th CPC has also the hidden political agenda, for  many States including  Delhi  are to go to polls in the next few months.  The National Secretariat of the Confederation will meet on 23.10.2013 at Delhi. Formal notice is being sent separately. The Sectt. will decide upon the future course of action. In view of the present announcement of the Government setting up the 7th CPC it is necessary that we should defer the strike ballot decision, which is scheduled to be held on 11th to 13th November, 2013.  It is however, our considered opinion that unless we tread the path of struggle the demand for merger of DA with pay, date of effect, inclusion of GDS within the ambit of the 7th CPC and other issues in our charter of demands will not be settled at all.   The campaign chalked out must, therefore, be carried out with determination and understanding that we will succeed.   We request the leaders of the affiliates, State Committees and National Sectt. Members to ensure that the campaign programmes are implemented as planned.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

7th PAY COMMISSION NEWS : A DEMAND TO 7th CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION (CPC) - CHILD CARE LEAVE(CCL) FOR MALE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

7th PAY COMMISSION NEWS : A DEMAND TO 7th CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION (CPC) - CHILD CARE LEAVE(CCL) FOR MALE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

A DEMAND TO 7th CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION (CPC) - CHILD CARE LEAVE(CCL) FOR MALE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

We know that a lot of anomalies pending in front of National Anomaly Committee.Few of them were solved and remaining anomalies will be discussed in the next NAC meeting.Even though central govt announced 7th CPC.It is a amicable news for CG employees.This is the time to speak out the problems we faced in 6th CPC through social media and blogs.Child Care Leave is one of the important issue to male central government employees.

To be in synchronised pattern with the Fastidious modern world and to fulfill a family's basic needs such as begetting good education for their child's fruitful future it becomes at most necessity that both the husband and wife should earn for their family.

The reality of high priced commodities which the common man can relish only in his dreams. The mountainous rise of land value which acts as a ardent barrier for fulfilling one own dream home,the dizziness caused by cost of rental houses and finally the enormous increase to gigantic proportion of the fees paid to schools for getting a decent education to their children-These force and make it definite that both the life partners should earn to make both ends meet.

In this economic warfare the grave truth is that the children who should be in the warmth and care of their parents spend and shove their time in the company of electronic gadgets

During important moments i.e the child's ill health , the child's important examination days the 6th pay commission has paved way for the mother to be by the childs sideby, the introduction of the plan known as CCL it has been whole heartedly welcomed by one and all .

Having borne in its mind that todays childcare the sculptors of tomorrows modern India, the central government has given this CCL which is a formidable concession

Of the couples who got to work to earn their living ,those of them who are both central govt employees are very few.

In certain families the husband will be a central govt employee while the wife may work in a private firm.
In some others the husband may work in a private firm while his spouse may work in a central govt institution

For instance let us keep in mind that the husband is a central govt employee and his wife works in a private institution the critend is that they would not reap the beneath of CCL as it as certained only to the female central govt employee.

We are all very well aware that the children need the warmth and care of both parents in equal measures.If it is so why then the central govt has not allotted CCL for their male employees.

During pregnancy time the female central govt employee are given maternity leave On similar basis the male employees are given paternity leave.This seems to be acceptable to a certain extent.But [to say frankly] the allotment of CCL only to the female central govt employee is not acceptable.

It is the same payment for same work for both the female and male employees in a central govt institution.Similarly the concessions given should be in common for both of them.If a female employee is given two years CCL the male employee also can be given nearly the same if not equal.

There are grounds on which a male central govt employee loses his wife or he diverse why hasn't the govt not taken in to consideration the condition of their children.Henceforth ccl should be given to the male central govt employees though certain conditions can be imposed. Only then the reason for which this concession (ccl) has been introduced could be realised to it full extent.

Patna, Ropar

Sir,
I am hereby directed to inform you that after due consideration the Ministry has taken the following decisions with regard to grant of TA/DA and payment of special allowance :-

A. Grant of special allowance. Dy. Directors/Wardens etc.

Keeping in view the Special Allowance of Rs.4000/- prescribed for Pro- Vice Chancellor, Ministry has suggested vide it is letter dated 9th March,2010 that the Dy. Directors may be paid a monthly special allowance of Rs.4000/- per month. Accordingly, it has been felt that the honorarium for Deans, Wardens etc. may be suitably revised keeping in view the existing norms. Accordingly, honorarium/special allowances in respect of Dy. Directors, Deans, Wardens etc. will be as under:-

 ExistingProposed revision
Dy.DirectorRs.1000/ p.m.Rs.4000/- p.m.
DeansRs.900/ p.m.Rs.3500/- p.m.
WardensRs.800/ p.m.Rs.2500/- p.m.
Assoc./Asstt. WardensRs.500/ p.m.Rs.2500/- p.m.

B. Eligibility for TA/DA with reference to Academic Grade Pay:


The recommendation with regard to the question of equivalence of Academic Grade Pay with Grade Pay for the purpose of determining the eligibility for TA/DA and other benefits also requires a re-look. Even though academic grade pay has been fixed slightly at a higher level than the grade pay fixed for similar grade of Central Government employees, the entitlement for TA/DA and other allowances would be governed by the provision of the CCS (RP) Rules,2008 as per the TNDA entitlement for corresponding Grade Pay.

Accordingly, the following mapping of academic grade pay with grade pay is required to be followed for the purpose of determining eligibility for TA/DA and other allowances:

Sl.No.Academic Grade PayEquivalent Grade Pay for TA/DA/Other Allowances
1Rs.6000 & Rs.7000/-Rs.6600/-
2Rs.8000/-Rs.7600/-
3Rs.9000/-Rs.8700/-
4Rs.9500/-Rs.8900/-
5Rs.10000 / 10500/-Rs.10000/-

C. HAG Scale of Rs.67,000 – 79,000/- :

A new HAG scale of Rs.67,000-79,000 has been introduced in place of Grade Pay of Rs.12,000/-. Accordingly, the Grade Pay of Rs.12,000/- does not any more exist
.
The conditions for moving to the new HAG scale will remain exactly the same as the movement from AGP of Rs.10,500/-to AGP of Rs.12,000/-. Further, as indicated in this Ministry’s letter of even number, dated 18.8.2010, this will have prospective effect from the date of issue of orders regarding revision of scales of pay, i.e. 18.8.2009.

This issues with the approval of Secretary (HE).
