Will the 7th CPC fulfil the demands of LDCs and UDCs?

Will the 7th CPC fulfil the demands of LDCs and UDCs?

For a number of years now, especially after the 6th CPC, the problems faced by LDCs and UDCs have started gaining prominence. The unity and sense of purpose among them makes them look all set for the kind of victory that Pharmacists had. Common sense of purpose, unity and dedication sure make success possible!
 
In order to decrease the number of grades, the 6th Pay Commission combined all the different grades between Grade Pay 1300 to Grade Pay 1800 into a single grade – Grade Pay 1800, thereby wiping out the entire Group ‘D’. As a result, everybody became Group ‘C’ employees. Even those who lacked the minimum education levels, illiterates and everybody else were lumped into Group ‘C’. Their Grade Pay was also raised to Rs. 1800. But, at the same time, employees working as LDCs, who have a minimum educational qualification of Class XII and also possess some technical education, were not given any upgrading. Instead, they now had to share their grade with lesser-qualified former Grade ‘D’ employees.
 

The next huge trouble originated from the MACP. Those who didn’t get any promotion for years are given career upgradations through MACP. LDCs who didn’t get any promotions for more than 10 years were given their next grade pay, from Rs. 1900, their pay rose to Rs. 2000. The increase of mere Rs. 100 turned out to be a huge disappointment to many. Similarly, those with Grade Pay 2400 were hoping for a jump to Grade Pay 4200, but were instead forced to upgrade with only Grade Pay 2800 as per MACP rules. That anger kept seething too, because the different is 1400.
 
The most important demand of the LDCs and UDCs is to upgrade the current Pay Scale-Grade Pay.
 
Grades are decided based on the educational qualification of the employees. An LDC possesses a minimum educational qualification of Class XII and also has some technical qualifications. The basic salary of an LDC is just Rs. 1900 + 5830 = Rs. 7730.00. They want it revised to Rs. 2400 + 7510 = Rs. 9910.
 
The big question is – will the 7th CPC grant this demand?

I am directed to refer to the subject noted above which was one of the Agenda items for the 24th Meeting of Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies and was referred to the Department of Expenditure for the further consideration.

The Department of Expenditure has given its approval in the matter and has stated that the DoPPW may regulate the entitlement of TA in respect of Non-official Members as per the entitlement of officials presently holding the posts from which these Non-officials (who are retired Government employees) had retired as per provisions of Revised Travelling Allowance Rules vide Department of Expenditure's OM no 19030/3/2008-EIV dtd 23.09.2008 subject to the conditions that where the distance to be travelled is more than 1000 kms, the Non-officials, if they are otherwise not entitled to air travel in terms of the OM dtd 23.09.2008, may travel by Air by Air India only and that the cheapest economy class airfare of Air India would be reimbursed. Whereas, if the distance to be travelled is more than 1000 kms, but the locations are not connected by Air India, the Non-official Members would have to travel by other authorised mode of transport (e.g rail).
 
4. This issues with the approval of Department of Expenditure vide M/o Finance ID Note no.23389/2014 dt 07.02.2014 (F.No 19020/1/2014-E-IV).
