The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M.of even no. dated 19.09.2017 on the subject noted above, which inter-alia provides that the travel entitlements of  Government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide Ministry of Finance’s O.M. No. 19030/1/2017-E.lV dated 13.07.2017, except the air travel  entitlement for Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, which is allowed in respect of TA only and not for LTC.

2. It is observed that many Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix had inadvertently travelled by air on LTC during the intervening period from 13.07.2017  to 19.09.2017 (i.e. post issue of MoF’s O.M. dated 13.07.2017 and before the issue of DoPT’s  O.M. dated 19.09.2017) under the impression that they were entitled for air travel as per the  revised TA rules. This Department is in receipt of references from the Government employees  and various Ministries/Departments seeking relaxation in respect of such Government  employees in view of the hardships faced by them in settlement of their LTC claims.

3. The matter has been examined in this Department in consultation with Department of Expenditure. In relaxation to this Department’s O.M. of even no. dated 19.09.2017, it has been decided to allow the claims of the Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, who had travelled by air as per the revised TA rules while availing LTC during 13.07.2017 to 19.09.2017. This shall be subject to the fulfillment of other conditions of air travel on LTC such as booking of air tickets through the authorised modes, fare limit of LTC-80, etc.

Cadre Review of Barrack and Stores Cadre – MoD Orders

Cadre Review of Barrack and Stores Cadre – MoD Orders

Ministry of Defence
D(Works-II)

Subject: Cadre Review of Barrack and Stores Cadre- reg

Reference is invited to MoD letter no. 76002/1St CR/BS Cadre/CSCC/23(l)/2017/D(W-II) dated 15.12.2017 and letter dated 10.05.2018.

2. During Inter Ministerial consultation regarding the Post of Joint DG (Resources), DoPT have noted some procedural and other discrepancies and stated as under

(i) The proposal of BS Cadre does not specifically mention the cadre as organised Group ‘A’ Cadre. However, the proposal has been finalized in a manner that it contains attributes of organised Group ‘A’ service such as DR element at JTS to the extent of 50%, all standard grade of Group ‘A’ Service upto SAG, making all the posts above JTS promotional, provision of 30% NFSG and mention of NFU, As such, the proposal tantamount to formation of an Organised Group ‘A’ service.

(ii) As per procedural requirements, for formation of a Service as Group ‘A’ Cadre/Group ‘A’ Service/Organised ‘ Service, the cadre review guidelines issued by the DoPT on 14/12/2010 are applicable. Proposals for formation of a Service as Group ‘A’ Cadre/Group ‘A’ Service/Organised Services are to be placed. before the Cadre Review Committee (CRC) headed by Cabinet Secretary with Secretary (Personnel), Secretary (Expenditure), Secretary (Administrative Department) and the Senior Most Member of the service concerned as Members. Based on the recommendations of CRC, approval of MoS (PP) and Finance Minister is obtained and subsequently the proposal is submitted for approval of the cabinet. The above, procedure has not been completed in the Cadre Review of Barracks and Store Cadre and the sanction letter has been issued only on the basis of approval of Deptt. of Expenditure.

(iii) The Cadre Review for Barrack and Stores cadre may also have serious implication on. the concept of organized Group ‘A’ Service/ Group ‘A’ Service/ NFU/NFSG etc. and various court cases on the matter of organized status/NFU/extension of 30% NFSG etc.

(iv) Accordingly, MoD’s letter dated 15/ 12/2017 needs to be immediately withdrawal/kept on hold wrt Group ‘A’ cadre till the approval of the competent authority (i.e Cabinet) on the Cadre Review/formation of Group ‘A’ Cadre/Group ‘A’ service/organized status. The procedure as per Cadre Review guidelines issued by the DoPT on 14/12/2010 needs to be followed and proposal submitted to DoPT along with all necessary details. However, if it is intended to retain the cadre as Group ‘B’/Group ‘C’ and not as Group ‘A’, the proposal may be revisited accordingly in consultation with DoE and while revisiting the provisions of DR element at JTS, 30% NFSG, NFU etc. which are characteristic/attributes of organized Group ‘A’ service may be withdrawn.

3. E-in-C’s Branch is requested to review the Cadre Review proposal and resubmit the file in the light of DoPT instructions whether they intend to retain the cadre as Group ‘B’/ Group ‘C’ or intend to create an Organised Group ‘A’ service. Based on the inputs, the proposal will be resubmitted to DoE if it is decided to retain the Cadre as Group ‘B’/Group ‘C’ or will be taken up with DoPT as per the guidelines if the intention is to create an Organised Gr ‘A’ Service.

4. Further, E-in-C’s Branch is requested to keep the Pay and Allowances of Barrack and Stores Cadre (BSO and above) in abeyance in light of the DoPT instructions till finalization of the case and in case pay fixation of the posts (BSO and above) have been carried out immediate steps may be taken to withdraw the same.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

No.45018/1/2017-Vig.

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 18th September, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding.

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), New Delhi has decided to observe “All India Protest Day” on 19th September, 2018 in support of the following issues:

i. Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula,
ii. Scrapping of the New Contributory Pension Scheme; and
iii. Allow Option No. 1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.

2. The instructions issued by the Department of Personnel and Training prohibit the Government servants from participating in any form of strike including mass casual leave, go slow or any action that abet any form of strike in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(I) of the Fundamental Rules, pay and allowances is not admissible to an employee for his absence from duty without any authority. As to the concomitant rights of an Association after it is formed, they cannot be different from the rights which can be claimed by the individual members of which the Association is composed. It follows that the right to form an Association does not include any guaranteed right to strike. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also ruled in several judgments that going on a strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by the Government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. No.33012/1/(s)/2008-Estt.(B) dated 12.9.2008, on the subject for strict compliance (enclosed as Annexure-A).

3. All officers are requested that the above instructions may be brought to the notice of the employees working under their control. All officers are also requested not to sanction Casual Leave or any other kind of leave to the officers and employees, if applied for, during the period of proposed protest, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of protest, i.e., 19.09.2018.
