According to a press release issued by the Labour Bureau, Ministry of Labour & Employment the All-India CPI-IW for November, 2013 rose by 2 points and pegged at 243(two hundred and forty three). On 1-month percentage change, it increased by 0.83 per cent between October and Novembert compared with 0.46 per cent between the same two months a year ago.

The largest upward pressure to the change in current index came from Food group contributing 2.23 percentage points to the total change. At item level, Rice, Wheat, Wheat Atta Milk, Pure Ghee, Garlic, Potato, Tomato and other vegetable items, Tea Readymade etc. are responsible for the rise in index.

LDC-UDC ISSUE: TOWARDS A FINAL ACTION ON LDC & UDC GRADE PAY ISSUE…

LDC-UDC ISSUE: TOWARDS A FINAL ACTION ON LDC & UDC GRADE PAY ISSUE…

TOWARDS A FINAL ACTION
WHY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF LDC & UDC SHOULD ASSEMBLE AT DELHI ON 9TH JANUARY 2014…?

This Association has been receiving opinion from LDC & UDCs of various Ministries of GOI in respect of upgradation of grade pay viz. (1) taking up of the LDC & UDC issue through political leaders including Sonia Gandhi (2) Challenge the present pay structure of LDC & UDC in the Principle bench of CAT. (3) Conducting pen-down strike to achieve the demand; and now we have a 4th opinion i.e. getting the grade pay of LDC & UDC upgraded through restructuring.

As regards the option (1) above, several of the experienced persons have advised me the way is not workable because no political leader/Multi-cadre Associations would support a particular cadre without considering the after effect of the pay structure of other cadres. Even the railway unions have not demanding upgradation of grade pay of the lakhs of junior clerks working in the railways.

Through option (2), we can put up the actual work load of LDC & UDC in subordinate offices; the decision of the pay Commission increasing the educational & technical qualification of LDC without an equal increase in the pay structure; subsequent increase of Grade pay by several state Governments who have implemented the 6th CPC in their state and other related issues before the court through a very good advocate.  It is worth to mention here that Confederation also has advised us to file a case in the principle CAT on the issue.
The 3rd opinion as received i.e. conducting of pen down strike by the LDC & UDCs is not practical because these LDC/UDC are spread over various ministries of GOI and lack of a common Association/Federation representing all these LDC & UDC. Moreover, we have the experience that major Federations, in which LDC & UDC of the respective Departments also members are not taking any active initiation to resolve the LDC/UDC issue.

As regards the 4th point, the instructions of Ministry of Finance to the FA, DoP&T is not complete. Restructuring of LDC & UDCs by each ministry according to merits of the representation made by the Associations is not practical. DoPT has to issue detailed instruction regarding the nomenclature of the posts, time frame for its implementation etc.

Thus in order to take a decision/forming a steering committee for further action a meeting of the representative/ Associations is organized on 9th January 2013 at New Delhi. The venue will be JANTHAR-MANTHAR i.e. the venue of Dharna of Confederation. The top leaders of Confederation will be available in the venue to take advice on the issue. We appeal all our friends, who gave me much energy to fight the case so far, to please attend the meeting.

All friends who attend the meeting may please co-operate by making their own arrangements for stay at Delhi.
With regards
Yours sincerely
(TKR Pillai)
General Secretary
