4. The dearness relief sanctioned by the Government from 1.1.2016 and thereafter, shall also be paid on rates of disability element and monthly ex-gratia award to Cadet(Direct), revised in accordance with the provision of this letter.

5.

Government Retires 13 Group ‘A’ Officers of Indian Ordnance Factories Service (Iofs)

Government Retires 13 Group ‘A’ Officers of Indian Ordnance Factories Service (Iofs)

The ordnance factories under the administrative control of the Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence are managed by the officers of Indian Ordnance Factories Service (IOFS), which is an organized Group ‘A’ Central Service. The Service is responsible to ensure that the ordnance factories are always geared to cater to the varied logistical needs of the Armed Forces. Indian Ordnance Factories Service provides requisite leadership to the 39 Ordnance Factories employing about 1 lakh employees.

The Government is taking various steps to improve the performance of Ordnance Factories by making its officers accountable to ensure delivery of quality products to Armed Forces of the nation in prescribed timelines.

One of the steps taken in this direction was to initiate rigorous screening of overall performance of its officers based on their entire service records in pursuance of instructions contained in the Fundamental Rule 56(j) and Rule 48(1)(b) of Central Civil Service(Pension) Rules, 1972 and prematurely retire the officers whose overall performance is not found upto the mark.

The Government, after having assessed the overall performance of officers of Indian Ordnance Factories Service, following the prescribed procedure, has decided to retire its 13 Group ‘A’ officers from Government service in public interest due to their overall unsatisfactory performance.

Stoppage of Holiday Over-Time in Ordnance Factories

Subject: Stoppage of Holiday Over-Time in Ordnance Factories – Protest of.

Reference: MoD ID No.DDP-P0012/8/2017-D(Prod-II) dt.08-08-2017.

Respected Sir,

I have been directed to bring the following for your kind immediate intervention.

Vide Ministry of Defence letter cited under reference above, Ordnance Factory Board has been directed to completely stop Holiday Overtime in the Factories.

In this connection we submit that the said order issued by concerned officials is totally unjustified and is without proper application of mind, suffice to say that Over time in the Ordnance Factories is not granted as a matter of routine or luxury but there is a time tested and logical formula vis-à-vis production output on the basis of which the action is taken and it is quantifiable.

Here it may also be pertinent to note that as per the annual statement of accounts of the factories, the total cost of labour on the cost of production is constant between 12 to 13% whereas other elements like Material, Fixed Over heads ,Variable Over heads consumes bulk of cost of production.

Thus targeting Labour to cut cost is not only an unprofessional approach but also shows the biased mindset of the concerned Officials of MoD which is adversely affecting the moral, dedication of the employee and output of the OFB organization.

There is large scale resentment amongst employees as a result of which whimsical diktat of the Ministry and we seek your immediate personal intervention in the matter to provide justice to the workmen.

We therefore once again demand that status quo ante be restored, pending further discussion on the matter.

Thanking You,

Sincerely yours

(M P SINGH)
