Date of next increment- Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016

Increment Date in Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 – Clarification

F.No. 4-21/2017-IC/E.III(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance Department of Expenditure
North Block, New Delhi

Dated 31st July, 2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Date of next increment- Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016- regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 which provides, inter alia, that there shall be two dates for increment namely 1st January and 1st July of every year, instead of the provision of one date of increment on the 1st July during the 6th Pay Commission pay structure. The Rule further provides that an employee shall be entitled to only one annual increment either on 1st January or 1st July depending on the date of appointment, promotion or grant of financial upgradation. The Sub-Rule (2) thereof provides that increment in respect of an employee appointed or promoted or granted financial upgradation including upgradation under MACP during the period between the 2nd day of January and 1st day of July (both inclusive) shall be granted on 1st day of January and the increment in respect of an employee appointed or promoted or granted financial upgradation including upgradation under MACP during the period between 2nd day of July and 1st day of January (both inclusive) shall be granted on 1st day of July.

2. The proviso to Sub-Rule 2 of Rule 10 of CCS (PR) Rules, 2016 provides that the next increment after drawal of increment on 1st day of July 2016 shall accrue as on 1st day of July 2017.

3. A number of references has been received in the Ministry of Finance seeking clarification whether in case of an employee promoted on 1st July 2016, whose pay was fixed on 01/07/2016 in terms of the rules governing fixation of pay on promotion, the next increment may be allowed on 1st January 2017 or on 1st July 2017.

4. The matter has been considered. During the regime of pay structure obtaining immediately prior to 01/01/2016, when the annual increment was admissible uniformly on 1st July every year, the increment was admissible on 1st July, provided the condition of 6 months service was fulfilled. Thereafter, the next increment used to be given after a period of 12 months.

5. Accordingly, keeping in view the principle followed during the period before 1.1.2016 immediately prior to coming into force of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, which has been modified in the revised pay structure in terms of Rule 10 thereof by way of 2 dates of increment on 1st January and 1st July, it is clarified that in case an employee is promoted or granted financial upgradation including upgradation under the MACP scheme on 1st January or 1st July, where the pay is fixed in the Level applicable to the post on which promotion is made in accordance with the Rule 13 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, the first increment in the Level applicable to the post on which promotion is made shall accrue on the following 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be, provided a period of 6 months qualifying service is strictly fulfilled. The next increment thereafter shall, however, accrue only after completion of one year.

6. This order is issued in consultation with office of C&AG in its application to employees working in Indian Audit and Accounts Department.

7. Hindi version of this order is also attached.

Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)

Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC).

NFIR

No. I/11/Part I

Dated: 30/07/2018

The Secretary (E), Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 11/2008.

(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2010/I/7/5/1 dated 14/03/2012.

The Railway Board vide letter dated 14/03/2012 had issued instructions to the Zonal Railways etc to grant two additional increments to the Nursing Staff possessing B.Sc. Degree as additional qualification in terms of para 160(2) (iii) of IREM Vol-I,1989 Edition, on the basis of pay drawn in 6th CPC Pay Band. These instructions were issued as a result of demand raised by NFIR vide PNM Item No. 11/2008.

Federation has since received representations from the Nursing staff of some Zonal Railways that the payment of two additional increments, based on the revised rates of 7th CPC is not yet ensured w.e.f. 01/01/2016, (the date of implementation of 7th CPC pay matrix) and payment continued at the old rates of 6th CPC Pay Band. The non-revision of additional increments rate has been causing hardships to the staff and grievances continued from Nursing Personnel.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly issue suitable clarification to all Zonal Railways/Production Units to grant two additional increments (3% each on 7th CPC Pay) from 01-01-2016 to the Nursing Personnel. A copy of instructions issued may please be endorsed to Federation.

Yours faithfully
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

7th Pay Commission Report – LOK SABHA

7th Pay Commission Report, Burden On Finance/Exchequer, Productivity Linked Pay Hike And Any Alternative Of Future Pay Commission

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF FINANCE
LOK SABHA

UNSTARRED QUESTION NO: 1652
ANSWERED ON: 27.07.2018

Pay Commission Reports

RAJENDRA AGRAWAL
Will the Minister of FINANCE be pleased to state:-

(a) whether the reports of successive Pay Commissions have been increasing the burden on Government finances/exchequer in partially accepting their recommendations for increase in wages and if so, the details thereof;

(b) whether the last Pay Commission has suggested productivity linked pay hike to the deserving employees to eliminate below average or mediocre performance and if so, the details thereof;

(c) whether such periodic hikes in wages resulting from Pay Commission recommendations trigger similar demands from the State Government/public utility employees, imposing burden on already strained State finances and if so, the details thereof; and

(d) whether the Government is considering an alternative for increasing the salaries and allowances of Central Government employees and pensioners in future instead of forming Pay Commission and if so, the details thereof?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE (SHRI P. RADHAKRISHNAN)

(a) The financial impact of the recommendations of the Central Pay Commission, as accepted by the Government, is normally pronounced in the initial year and gradually it tapers off as the growth in the economy picks up and fiscal space is widened. While implementing the recommendations of the last Central Pay Commission, i.e., the Seventh Central Pay Commission, the Government staggered its implementation in two financial years. While the recommendations on pay and pension were implemented with effect from 01.01.2016, the recommendations in respect of allowances after an examination by a Committee have been implemented with effect from 01.07.2017. This has moderated the financial impact of the recommendations. Moreover, unlike the previous 6th Pay Commission, which entailed substantial impact on account of arrears, the impact in the year 2016-17 on account of element of arrears of revised pay and pension on the present occasion of the 7th Central Pay Commission pertained to only 2 months of the previous financial year of 2015-16.

(b) The Seventh Central Pay Commission in Para 5.1.46 of its Report proposed withholding of annual increment in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) or regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

(c) The service conditions of employees of State Governments fall within the exclusive domain of the respective State Governments who are federally independent of the Central Government. Therefore, the concerned State Governments have to independently take a view in the matter.

(d) No such proposal is under consideration of the Government.

RBE No. 102/2018

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No. E(NG)II/2008/RR-I/33 (3010339)

RBE No. 102/2018

New Delhi, dated 18.07.2018

The General Manager (P),
All Zonal Railways/Production Units,
(As per standard mailing list).

Sub: Direct recruitment from open market in Level-1 (7th CPC pay matrix) – Procedure-regarding.

The non-materialization of full panel despite all out efforts made by the Railway recruiting agencies has been engaging the attention of the Board. Accordingly, the procedure for recruitment from open market in Level-1 was reviewed and following decisions taken with respect to different instructions issued from time to time:-

i) Para I (ii) of instructions contained under RBE No. 138/2014 dated 10.12.2014 lays down that “the number of candidates called for Physical Efficiency Test (PET) should be 02 (two) times the number vacancies”.

In modification of above, the number of candidates to be called for PET should now be 03 (three) times the number notified vacancies.

ii) Para 3 of instructions contained in RBE No. 73/2008 dated 17.06.2008 lays down that “the number of candidates called for Document Verification (DV) shall be 20% over & above the number of vacancies”.

In modification of above, henceforth, the number of candidates to be called for DV shall be twice the number of notified vacancies.

iii) Para 2 of instructions contained in RBE No. 06/2014 dated 10.01.2014 stipulates that “no replacement panels are to be given against non-joining of selected candidates”.

In modification of the above, it has been decided that the panel will now be formed to the extent of the notified vacancies with a standby panel of 50% of the notified vacancies. In case the main panel plus stand-by is also exhausted and still there is a shortfall vis-a-vis notified vacancies, the recruiting agency may further go down in the list of candidates which meet the requirement of minimum qualifying marks in their respective community for conducting PET(If needed) and DV/ME to the extent of shortfall community-wise. This may be done till the demand from the concerned Railway administration w.r.t indent placed and vacancies notified is fully met. These provisions shall be subject to currency of the panel.

2. The above guidelines will also be applicable to recruitment notification published under centralized Employment Notice No. 02/2018, issued by Railway Recruitment Boards.

Please acknowledge receipt.

NFIR

Pay Matrix Level 8 to JE/CMA/DMS/JE(IT) in Railways

No. IV/NFIR/ 7 CPC (Imp)/2017/R.B. Part II

Dated: 23/07/2018

Shri Piyush Goyal,
Hon’ble Minister of Railways,
Rail Mantralaya,
New Delhi.

Dear Shri Goyal Sahib,

Sub: Grave injustice done by successive Pay Commission to the category of Junior Engineers and Senior Engineers in Railways-growing dissatisfaction, discontentment and frustration among Technical Supervisors – kind intervention requested.

Ref: (i) Hon’ble MR’s D.O. letter No. PC-VII/2015/R-U/9 dated 20/04/2017 to Hon’ble Finance Minister.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp) /2017/R.B.- Part II dated 19/02/2018 to CRB and copy endorsed to MS. MF, FC, DG(P) etc.
(iii) NFIR’s PNM File No. 03/2018 and 10/2018.

NFIR has been pursuing the case of Graduate Engineers/Diploma Engineers and Supervisory Officials working in different Departments since several years at the level of Railway Ministry for rectifying the imbalances in their pay structure to ensure justice to these Supervisory Officials who have been let down not only by the previous Pay Commissions but also by the Railway Board.

Pursuant to NFIR’s follow up action through PNM fora (Agenda Item No. 03/2018 & 10/2018), the Railway Board through Action Taken Statement dated 10th May, 2018 has conveyed that the proposal regarding upgradation of 75% of Senior Supervisors from Level 7 (erstwhile GP 4600) to Level-8 (erstwhile GP 4800), to bring parity has already been sent to the Ministry of Finance and Hon’ble MR has also sent D.O. letter dated 20th April, 2017 to the Hon’ble Finance Minister seeking approval. The Railway Board has also informed the Federation that a meeting also been held with the Officials of Finance Ministry on 21st February, 2018 and action on hand for obtaining clearance.

NFIR brings to the kind notice of the Hon’ble MR that despite D.O letter of Hon’ble MR vide letter dated 20th April, 2017and discussions held by the Railway Ministry with Ministry of Finance on 21/02/2018, approval of Ministry of Finance has not yet been received. Hon’ble MR may kindly appreciate that in this case the Railway Ministry conceded that grave injustice has been meted out to Graduate Engineers, Diploma Engineers and Supervisory Officials in the Railway resultantly approached the Ministry of Finance to approve for upgradation of 75% posts of erstwhile GP 4600/Level-7 to erstwhile GP 4800/Pay Level-8.

Hon’ble MR may kindly appreciate that on this issue, there was an agreement between the full Board and the Federations for total replacement of GP 4600 (6th CPC)/Pay Level-7 of 7th CPC with GP 4800 (6th CPC)/Pay Level-8 of 7th CPC but sadly, the agreement has not been implemented till date.

NFIR, therefore seeks your kind intervention for the purpose of obtaining approval of the Ministry of Finance for upgradation of posts to GP 4800/- (Pay Level-8) without further delay.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,

The General Manager (P),
All Zonal Railways/Production Units,
(As per standard mailing list).

Sub: Direct recruitment from open market in Level-1 (7th CPC pay matrix) – Procedure-regarding.

The non-materialization of full panel despite all out efforts made by the Railway recruiting agencies has been engaging the attention of the Board. Accordingly, the procedure for recruitment from open market in Level-1 was reviewed and following decisions taken with respect to different instructions issued from time to time:-

i) Para 1 (ii) of instructions contained under RBE No. 138/2014 dated 10.12.2014 lays down that “the number of candidates called for Physical Efficiency Test (PET) should be 02 (two) times the number vacancies”.

– In modification of above, the number of candidates to be called for PET should now be 03 (three) times the number notified vacancies.

ii) Para 3 of instructions contained in RBE No. 73/2008 dated 17.06.2008 lays down that “the number of candidates called for Document Verification (DV) shall be 20% over & above the number of vacancies”.

– In modification of above, henceforth, the number of candidates to be called for DV shall be twice the number of notified vacancies.

iii) Para 2 of instructions contained in RBE No. 06/2014 dated 10.01.2014 stipulates that “no replacement panels are to be given against non-joining of selected candidates”.

– In modification of the above, it has been decided that the panel will now be formed to the extent of the notified vacancies with a standby panel of 50% of the notified vacancies. In case the main panel plus stand-by is also exhausted and still there is a shortfall vis-a-vis notified vacancies, the recruiting agency may further go down in the list of candidates which meet the requirement of minimum qualifying marks in their respective community for conducting PET (if needed) and DV/ME to the extent of shortfall community-wise. This may be done till the demand from the concerned Railway administration w.r.t. indent placed and vacancies notified are fully met. These provisions shall be subject to currency of the panel.

2. The above guidelines will also be applicable to recruitment notification published under Centralized Employment Notice No. 02/2018, issued by Railway Recruitment Boards.

Please acknowledge receipt.

4. The concerned Administration Wing of the Ministries / Departments will prepare a list of operational Staff with full justification based on the above parameters for inclusion of a particular category of staff in the list of operational staff with the approval of IS (Admn.) and Financial Adviser of the concerned Ministry / Department.

Dated: 17th July 2018

Office Memorandum

Subject: Recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Implementation of decisions relating to the grant of Children Education Allowance (CEA) and Hostel Subsidy – Consolidated instructions.

Consequent upon the decisions taken by the Government to implement the recommendations made by the VII Central Pay Commission, this Department has issued an OM of even number dated 16-8-2017 revising the rates of CEA/Hostel Subsidy and simplifying the procedure for claiming reimbursement of the same. However this Department has been receiving various queries regarding CEA/Hostel Subsidy especially with regard to the applicability of various provision/instructions issued during sixth CPC regime/period. Further references have also been received regarding the difficulty being faced by some government employees in obtaining certificate of the Head of the

Institution as mentioned in this Department’s OM of even number dated 16-8-2017.

2. Keeping in view the above, it has been decided to issue consolidated instructions in supersession of all earlier OMs on the subject of Children Education Allowance and Hostel subsidy as under:-

a) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel subsidy can be claimed only for the two eldest surviving children with the exception that in case the second child birth results in twins/multiple birth. In case of failure of sterilization operation, the CEA/Hostel Subsidy would be admissible in respect of children born out of the first instance of such failure beyond the usual two children norm.

b) The amount for reimbursement of Children Education allowance will be Rs.2250/- per month (fixed) per child. This amount of Rs.2250/- is fixed irrespective of the actual expenses incurred by the Govt. Servant. In order to claim reimbursement of CEA, the Govt. servant should produce a certificate issued by the Head of the Institution for the period/year for which claim has been preferred. The certificate should confirm that the child studied in the school during the previous academic year. In case such certificate can not be obtained, self- attested copy of the report card or self attested fee receipt(s){including e-receipt(s)} confirming/indicating that the fee deposited for the entire academic year can be produced as a supporting document to claim CEA. The period/year means academic year i.e. twelve months of complete academic session.

c) The amount of ceiling of hostel subsidy is Rs.6750/- pm. In order to claim reimbursement of Hostel Subsidy for an academic year, a similar certificate from the Head of Institution confirming that the child studied in the school will suffice, with additional requirement that the certificate should mention the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential

complex. In case such certificate cannot be obtained, self attested copy of the report card and original fee receipt(s)/e-receipt(s) which should indicate the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential complex can be produced for claiming Hostel Subsidy: The expenditure on boarding and lodging or the ceiling of Rs.6750/- as mentioned above, whichever is lower, shall be paid to the employee as Hostel Subsidy. The period/year will mean the same as explained above in clause (b) of this para.

d) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance for Divyaang children of government employees shall be payable at double the normal rates of CEA prescribed above in clause (b) i.e. Rs.4500/- per month (fixed).

e) The above rates/ceiling would be automatically raised by 25% every time the Dearness Allowance on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%.

f) The Hostel Subsidy and Children Education Allowance can be claimed concurrently.

g) In case both the spouses are Government servants, only one of them can avail reimbursement under Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy.

h) The reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy will be done just once in a financial year after completion of the financial year.

i) Hostel subsidy is applicable only in respect of the child studying in a residential educational institution located at least 50 kilometers from the residence of the Government servant.

j) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy shall have no nexus with the performance of the child in his class. In other words, even if a child fails in a particular class, the reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel Subsidy shall not be stopped. However, if the child is admitted in the same class in another school, although the child has passed out of the same class in previous school or in the mid-session, CEA shall not be reimbursable.

k) If a Government servant dies while in service, the Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible in respect of his/her children subject to observance of other conditions for its grant provided the wife/husband of the deceased is not employed in service of the Central Govt., State Government, Autonomous body, PSU, Semi Government Organization such as Municipality, Port Trust Authority or any other organization partly or fully funded by the Central Govt./State Governments. In such cases the CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be payable to the children till such time the employee would have actually received the same, subject. to the condition that other terms and conditions are fulfilled. The payment shall be made by the office in which the Government servant was working prior to his death and will be regulated by the other conditions, laid down in this OM.

I) In case of retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service, CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be admissible till the end of the academic year in which the Government servant ceases to be in service due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service in the course of an academic year. The payment shall be made by the office in which the government servant worked prior to these events and will be regulated by the other conditions laid down in this OM.

m) The upper age limit for Divyaang children has been set at 22 years. In the case of other children the age limit will be 20 years or till the time of passing 12th class whichever is earlier. There shall be no minimum age.

n) Reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy shall be applicable for children from class nursery to twelfth, including classes eleventh and twelfth held by Junior Colleges or schools affiliated to Universities or Boards of Education.

0) CEA is allowed in case of children studying through “Correspondence or Distance Learning” subject to other conditions laid down herein.

p) The CEA and Hostel Subsidy is admissible in respect of children studying from two classes before class one to 12th standard and also for the initial two years of a diploma/certificate course from Polytechnic/ITI/Engineering College, if the child pursues the course after passing 10th standard and the Government servant has not been granted CEA/ Hostel Subsidy in respect of the child for studies in I1th and 12th standards.
q) In respect of schools/institutions at nursery, primary and middle level not affiliated to any Board of education, the reimbursement under the Scheme may be allowed for the children studying in a recognized school/institution. Recognized school/institution in this regard means a Government school or any education institution whether in receipt of Govt. Aid or not, recognized by the Central or State Government or Union Territory Administration or by University or a recognized educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution/school is situated.

r) In case of a Divyaang child studying in an institution i.e. aided or approved by the Central/State Govt. or UT Administration or whose fees are approved by any of these authorities, the Children Education Allowance paid by the Govt. servant shall be reimbursed irrespective of whether the institution is ‘recognized’ or not. In such cases the benefits will be admissible till the child attains the age of 22 years.

s) The CEA is payable for the children of all Central Government employees including citizens of Nepal[ and Bhutan, who are employees of Government of India, and whose children are studying in the native place. However, a certificate may be obtained from the concerned Indian Mission that the school ‘ is recognized by the educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution is situated.

NO.NJCA/2018
Daled: July 3, 2018

Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashlrapali Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

The NJCA of the organizations, participating in the JCM, met today and adopted the enclosed resolution.

The NJCA was extremely unhappy to nole that the government did not honour its commitment made to the leaders of the organizations when they metlhe Hon’ble Home Minister and Finance Minister in the presence of the then Railway Ministers on 30.06.2016 on the basis of which the Indefinite Strike which was to commence on 11 .07.2016 was deferred.

The reply 10 a question asked by Shri Neeraj Shekhar in the Upper House of the Parliamcnl(Rajya Sabha) given by Hon’ble Minister of State for Finance, Shri P. Radha Krishnan, on 06.03.201 B Minister, which is reproduced below, has further angered the Central Government employees.

“Question of Shri Neeraj Shekhar(1170)

(a) Whether Government Is actively contemplating to increase minimum pay from Rs.18,000/· to Rs.21,000/· and filment factor from 2.57 to 3, in view of resentment among the Central Government employees over historically lowest increase in pay by 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC);
(b) If so, the details thereof and the date from which it would be implemented; and
(c) If not, the reasons for the callous attitude of Government towards Government Employees?”

ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE (SHRI P RADHAKRISHNAN )

“(a),(b)&(c ) – The minimum Pay of Rs .18,000/- p.m. and filment factor of 2.57 are based on the specific recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in the light of the relevant factors taken into account by it. Therefore, no change therein is at present under consideration”.

The NJCA has decided to meet again on 18.08.2018 10 consider the response, if any, from the government to this letter and to the enclosed resolution.

In case of the continuing negative attitude of the government, the NJCA will be left with no other alternative but to revive the decision of Indefinite Strike action, which was deferred on 06.07.2016 on the basis of the assurance given by the Group of Ministers on 30.06.2016.

Sincerely yours,
(Shiv. Gopal Mishra)

Resolution

National Joint Council of Action
4, State Entry Road New Delhi – 110055

RESOLUTION

The National JCA, which met today(03.07.20 18) at New Delhi as per the notice issued by the Convenor, after deliberations, came to the painful conclusion that the government had been unfortunately indulging in chicanery for the past two years by not honouring their commitment made to the NJCA leaders on 30.06.2016. The NJCA which was formed to pursue the demands and issues of the Central Government Employees especially those emanating from the recommendations made by the 7th CPC in the matter of Wage Revision, New Pension Scheme etc. had deferred the Indefinite Strike action, which was to commence from 11 .07.2016, on the solemn announcement held out by the Group of Ministers, consisting of the Hon’ble Home Minister, Finance Minister and the then Railway Ministers. The Govt had categorically stated that they should set up a High Power Committee to look into the matters concerning the upward revision of Minimum Wage Fitment Formula etc. with a direction to submit its report within four months. The NJCA had made reasoned submissions as to the fallacy of the computation of Minimum Wage made by the 7th CPC.

The meeting further noted that the report of the committee, set-up by the Government under the Chairmanship of the Secretary, Pension, to look into the grievances of the employees and officers over the newly introduced Contributory Pension Scheme in place of the existing Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, has been kepi pending by the Government without taking any action whatsoever, thereby denying the benefit of Defined Benefit Of Pension to the employees recruited on or after 1.1 .2004.

The meeting also noted that, rejection of Option No.1, recommended by the 7th CPC, to the Pensioners on the specious ground that the said recommendation was not feasible to be implemented, was nothing but denial of legitimate parity between the past and present Pensioners.

The meeting noted with deep concern and anguish that the government has virtually closed down the doors of negotiation by not convening the meeting of the National council JCM lor the past 8 years.

The meeting in the above circumstances and given the totally nugatory attitude of the government has decided to revive the Indefinite Strike action, which was deferred on 30.06.2016, immediately and call upon the Central Government employees to prepare themselves for an otherwise inevitable show down. The meeting noted that the government had been dillydallying the issue for the past two years. The meeting desired that the government must immediately address the follollling issues and bring about negotiated settlement thereof without any further delay.

a) Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitm ent Formula
b) Scrapping the New Contributory Pension Scheme.
c) Allow Option No.1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.

The meeting has directed the Convenor to bring to the notice of the Cabinet Secretary and through him the government lhe resentment and discontent of the employees and await their response up to 07.08.2018 and put into operation the deciSion to revive the decision of Indefinite Strike action immediately, thereafter, in case no negotiated settlement is brought about on the various demands included In the Charter of Demands .
