Dear Coms.,

Sub: Feedback of the meeting held between the Cabinet Secretary(Government of India) and Secretary(Staff Side), NC/JCM

A meeting was held today between the Cabinet Secretary(Government of India) and Secretary(Staff Side), National Council(JCM), wherein the undersigned raised the issue of non-holding of meeting of the NC/JCM since more than last four years.

While emphasizing on improvement in functioning of JCM Forum, I demanded effective functioning of the National and Departmental Council(JCM) at all levels.I raised the issue of non-consultation with the Staff Side while deciding Terms of Reference of VII CPC on the back of Staff Side.

I demanded inclusion of issue of Merger of Dearness Allowance with Pay and Payment of Interim Relief should either be settled by the Central Government or it should be referred to VII CPC with specific instructions that, it should be deliberated immediately, and the issue of Interim Relief must be decided within three months.

I also raised the issue of rumour spread in the air for bringing 5 days a week working to six days a week. The Cabinet Secretary said, so far there is no proposal of five days a week working at the anvil. Copies of the letters written by the undersigned to the Cabinet Secretary in connection with the above subjects are being enclosed herewith for ready reference.

The Cabinet Secretary discussed all these issues and heard viewpoint of the Staff Side very patiently and assured that he would try to hold meeting of the National Council(JCM) at an earliest.

So far as merger of DA with Pay and Payment of Interim Relief are concerned, Cabinet Secretary assured for appropriate action.

He also assured for effective and smooth functioning of the JCM Forum .

Comradely yours,

'One rank one pension' scheme will be implemented: PM Modi promises at INS Vikramaditya
“My government is committed to One-rank One-pension,” said PM Modi on board INS Vikramaditya. “There were many promises on One-rank One-pension, but no action was taken,” he added. He further mentioned that the security of the country is his top priority. “We want to see eye-to-eye with the world. We don’t wish to threaten others, neither do we wish to bow down before others,” he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday visited the country’s largest warship INS Vikramaditya off Goa coast in Arabian Sea, showcasing India’s naval prowess. Arriving on board the warship in a Sea King chopper, the Prime Minister was given the ceremonial guard of honour by the Navy and was briefed about the warship, which will be dedicated to the nation today.

He also sat in a MIG 29 aircraft and had a feel of the combat fighter on the ship sailing off the Goa coast. The Prime Minister will spend a few hours on board the 44,500-tonne warship and is likely to witness a host of exercises by the frontline warships and aircraft. This is the new Prime Minister’s first visit to any defence installation

D.O.No.NC/JCM/2014

Resp. Shri Seth,

Reg.: Holding of meeting of the National Council(JCM)

I am thankful for providing me an opportunity to meet you and explain various problems of the Central Government Employees.

You might be aware that, the meeting of the National Council(JCM) could not take place during the last four years, whereas this meeting should be convened at least twice a year on six monthly basis as per schedule. The members of the Standing Committee(Staff Side) had, therefore, shown their anguish in the last meeting of the Standing Committee of the National Council(JCM) held on 7th May, 2014 because of inactiveness of the NC/JCM Forum.

You may appreciate that the Joint Consultative Machinery was constituted in the year 1966 on persuasions of Late S/Shri Guljari Lal Nanda and Jaisukh Lal Hathi, the then Hon'ble Minister for Home Affairs and Minister of State for Home Affairs, respectively, with a view to create congenial atmosphere between the Government(Official Side) and the Employees(Staff Side) to secure mutual confidence in the interest of industrial harmony. After its constitution, this machinery had performed well and proved to be an effective tool for resolving many important issues related to the Central Government Employees, thereby avoiding confrontation and conflict. It is, however, a matter of concern that, with the passage of time, this forum is becoming ineffective in achieving its objective, more so because even its regular meetings are not being convened as per schedule, what to talk of resolving the issues, on account of which, serious discontentment is brewing among the Central Government Employees.

I, therefore, on taking over as Secretary(Staff Side), National Council(JCM) on 11.03.2014, after sad demise of Late Umraomal Purohit on 27.02.2014, have been making sincere efforts for meeting with the Secretary, DoP&T and yourself as well.

It would, therefore, be quite appropriate that the Joint Consultative Machinery should be made effective, and strengthened by increasing the participation level also, which, I am sure, would prove to be an effective tool to resolve major issues related to more than 36 lakh Central Government Employees and provide better motivation and proper working environment for them.

I would, therefore, request you that the meeting of the National Council(JCM) may be convened at the earliest possible so as to resolve various long pending major issues pertaining to Central Government Employees.

With kind regards!

Sincerely yours,
(Siva Gopal Mishra)

Shri Ajit Kumar Seth,
Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
New Delhi
