Centre decided to abolish 90% of the posts in the grade of UDC as and when these fall vacant, in future”

 

A Question was raised by Shri Rajkumar Dhoot in Rajya Sabha regarding abolishment of Clerical Posts in Government establishments. In a Reply to this Question No.2086, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions DR. JITENDRA SINGH has stated the following..

 

“The Government of India has not abolished all Clerical Posts in all Government establishments. SSC has made recruitment for the posts of Lower Division Clerk (LDC) and Upper Division Clerk (UDC) in respect of vacancies reported by various Ministries/Departments/Sub-ordinate offices of Government of India.

 

However, the First Cadre Review of Central Secretariat Service was taken up in the year 2001. The Government had accepted recommendations of the committee in the year 2003 that Direct Recruitment LDC in Central Secretariat Clerical Services (CSCS) cadre may be stopped with immediate effect and all posts of LDC in CSCS presently filled through Direct Recruitment mode be abolished as and when these fall vacant. It was also decided to abolish 90% of the posts in the grade of UDC as and when these fall vacant, in future”

Designations like Lower Division Clerk (LDC) and Upper Division Clerk (UDC) in central government’s employee hierarchy have been replaced with new nomenclature

Centre says goodbye to clerk era, changes designation for its staff

New Delhi: Designations like Lower Division Clerk (LDC) and Upper Division Clerk (UDC) in central government’s employee hierarchy have been replaced with new nomenclature.

The posts of UDC and LDC under Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS) have been rechristened as Senior Secretariat Assistant and Junior Secretariat Assistant, respectively, Order F.No.21/12/2010-CS.I(P) dated December 21 issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.

Besides, the post of Assistant under Central Secretariat Service (CSS) has been renamed as Assistant Section Officer, it said.

Both the CSCS and CSS form the backbone of administrative work in the central government.

The total sanctioned strength of CSS and CSCS is 11,467 and 5,933 respectively.

Earlier in March, the DoPT had decided to replace the ‘class’ categorisation for specifying the seniority of its employees with new alphabetical groupings.

The posts under the central government will be denoted as groups A, B, C and D instead of classes I, II, III and IV in the service rules, it had said.

The Class-III (Group C) employees had expressed concern that they were taunted as ‘third-class’ employees due to the categorisation.

The Class-I classification is for gazetted officers while Class-II refers to mainly the non-gazetted officers, though there are some gazetted officers in this category too.

Class-III comprises clerical staff and Class-IV (which is now subsumed in Class III or Group C) includes peons and helps or multi-tasking staff in the government hierarchy.

LDC-UDC Matter & MACP on Promotional Hierarchy in 7th CPC Recommendation: AIAAS(NG) writes to Confederation

LDC-UDC Matter & MACP on Promotional Hierarchy in 7th CPC Recommendation: AIAAS(NG) writes to Confederation

Message from Secretary AIAAS(NG) :-

This Association has taken up the LDC/UDC, MACP on Promotional Hierarchy, and other issues related to Administrative Staff with Confederation. Copy of the letter sent to the Secretary General, Confederation is given below: All our LDC/UDC friends are requested to raise the issue in their respective Association to force them to represent the issue to Confederation/JCM Staff Side.
ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF (NG)
MINISTRY OF STATISTICS AND PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION
Bhopal,
Dated 25/11/2015

To

Com. M Krishnan,
Secretary General,
Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers,
New Delhi

Dear comrade,

This is in connection with LDC/UDC, MACP on Promotional hierarchy and other issues related to Administrative Staff of Subordinate offices. It is surprising to note that the 7th Pay Commission has turned down the genuine issue of LDC & UDC on the ground that the government has stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents. If this is true, it is a matter of great concern that the Government has chosen to take a unilateral decision on an important policy matter without consulting the Staff side. The reason given for rejection of the demand is not convincing.
Besides Confederation/Staff Side JCM, several Departments had recommended upgradation of grade pay of LDC & UDC of Administrative Offices especially the LDC & UDCs of subordinate offices of Government of India.
Extracts of the Pay Commission comments on the matter is given below:
By analyzing the demand of SVP, National Police Academy under Para 11.22.100 the Commission has said “This issue has been dealt in Chapter 7.7. Recommendations made there would apply in this case also”
As against the demand of Directorate of Printing under Para 11.52.32 Commission maintained that “posts like LDC, UDC, Accountant are common to a number of ministries/ departments. Recommendations regarding their pay are contained in Chapter 7.7 and Chapter 11.35.”
But, in Chapter 7.7, deals common category, no recommendation for LDC/UDC is given.
However by recording disagreement to increase promotional quota of MTS to LDC under Para 7.7.37 & 11.35.28 Commission has said that “government has already stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents, this demand cannot be accepted.”
But the fact is that Staff Selection Commission is frequently conducting recruitment for the post of LDC. Combined higher secondary examination for the selection of LDC also has been conducted recently. Moreover, no alternative recommendation to replace the LDC post is given in the report.  It is to be noted that the normal ratio of LDC and UDC in subordinate offices is 5:2 and thus LDCs have been allocated responsible sections and in many smaller offices LDC alone is handling the work of entire Administration.
On the other hand rejecting Central Secretariat Clerical service demand for parity with DEO, the commission observes “Even though the entry requirements are similar, historically the pay scales of the two posts have been different. Besides, they comprise two distinct cadres with different set of roles and responsibilities. Hence, the demand for parity of pay of LDC with DEOs cannot be acceded to by the Commission.”(Para 11.35.38).
Historically these cadres may be different set of roles but the fact is that functions of LDC are more complex than that of DEO and same was brought before the commission by various Associations/Administrative Authorities. Earlier pay Commissions have fixed Pay Scale to DEO considering their work on computer. But today LDCs are selected on the basis of their expertise in computer operation also.
By concluding the LDC issue, I give hereunder two comments among the dozens of comments/e-mail received us on the subject. This signifies the sufferings of LDCs in subordinate offices.
(1)   I am really disappointed with the decision of 7th CPC, I was hoping that I would get atleast GP 2400 as per their calculation, they don’t even think about lower classMyself Ashutosh, LDC and I am appointed on 2012, 3000 KM far from my house and from last 2 years I am doing the work of cashier along with all the work of Income Tax and budget, apart from me 4 more LDC’s are working here instead of UDC’s and they are the backbone of their branch but as per 7th CPC words we are not having as much responsible work they think LDC’s are recruits only for “dispatch” and “typing” which is not true.
I request to them, sir please come and see how much responsibility we have and what we are getting,
(2)    I am s murugan LDC, handling with pay bills, income tax, TDS and what are related to taxable income such as LTC encashment, final bills, HRA claim and etc…
In 7th Cpc report every where it is stated that this is dealt with chapter 7.7 and 11.35. But, there are no clear instructions for clerical.
The major error is clerical cadre is not included in common categories (chapter 7).
II      Grant of MACP on Promotional Hierarchy:
Even though the Confederation has clarified that the Commission has recommended MACP on promotional hierarchy, the report of the Commission is confusing and contradictory. Para 5.1.44 reads in the new Pay matrix, the employees will move to the immediate next level in the hierarchy. This can be interpreted as fixation in the same principle as that for a regular promotion. But Para 11.52.45 is contradictory.
III     The Grade Pay of  Assistants/Stenographers of Central Secretariat is brought down to Rs. 4200 from the existing Rs. 4600 and NFSG granted to the UDCs of Central Secretariat has been withdrawn thereby the demand for parity with the Grade Pay of Assistant/UDC of Central Secretariat is turned down.
Comrades, Government is bent upon to contractorise all the Administrative posts below the post of Assistants. The demand for merger of Grade Pay of LDC & UDC and upgradation to Rs. 2800, as recommended by the staff side is genuine in accordance with duties assigned. Confederation/JCM (Staff Side) is requested to please help LDC/UDC and other Administrative Staff of subordinate Offices to resolve these genuine issues.
Yours fraternally

TKR Pillai
General Secretary

7th Pay Commission : LDC – UDC Issue – Government Stand Reiterated

7TH PAY COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION

LDC-UDC ISSUE-GOVERNMENT STAND REITERATED

On the issue of LDC/UDC 7th Pay Commission reiterated the deceiving stand of the Government. Despite of realizing the issue as genuine, Government had not taken a positive decision at their level. The tens of thousands of LDC & UDC, solely responsible for the smooth running of many of the subordinate offices, were hoping that 7th Pay Commission will study the problem faced by them and take a positive decision. Staff Side JCM having convinced the importance of the issue, had also recommended merger & upgradation of the Grade Pay of LDC & UDC to Rs. 2800. But here we see that 7th Pay Commission has not taken any decision on the issue except giving some confusing and misleading statements to vindicate the stand taken by the Government as true. Extracts of some of their views on LDC UDC issue spread over various chapters of the reports is given below:

Higher GP 2400 to LDC and consequent upgradation of pay for other civilian posts in the Ministerial hierarchy.

11.22.100 The Academy has urged that LDC should be placed in higher GP 2400 as against the existing GP 1900 at par with grade pay of Data Entry Operator (DEO), on the grounds that both LDC and DEO enter service on the basis of same educational qualification i.e., Class XII and that the functions of LDC are more complex than that of a DEO. This issue has been dealt in Chapter 7.7. Recommendations made there would apply in this case also.

11.52.32 They have demanded upgradation in pay of certain category of non-industrial posts viz., LDC, UDC, Accountant, Junior Head Clerk, Head Clerk, Office Superintendent and Assistant Manager (Admin).

Analysis and Recommendations
11.52.33 The Commission has not received the views of the ministry/department on the issue. However, posts like LDC, UDC, Accountant are common to a number of ministries/ departments. Recommendations regarding their pay are contained in Chapter 7.7 and Chapter 11.35. The Commission does not find any justification for increase in pay scale of the other cadres.

But in Chapter 7.7 no direct recommendation except to decline the demand of LBSNAA to increase the promotional quota of MTS to LDC, is visible. The extract of Para 7.7.37 is give below:

Analysis and Recommendations
7.7.37 Looking at the qualification requirements and their job profile, the Commission does not recommend any changes in the pay structure or the promotional prospects of the MTS. Regarding MTS in Delhi Police, the Commission is of the view that since MTS is a common category, any special dispensation to MTS in Delhi Police is not justified. In so far as the MTS of LBSNAA are concerned, the Commission notes as per the recruitment rules for LDC, presently only 5 percent of MTS can get promoted to LDC through limited departmental examination. However, since the government has stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents, their demand cannot be accepted.

LDCs
11.35.27 There are demands that 50 percent posts of LDCs be earmarked for filing up by promotion/departmental examination by MTS. It has been argued that the educational qualification for the post of MTS is Class X and they are recruited through SSC for performing the work of Peon, Mali, Cobbler, and Sweeper etc. Since most of the MTS join the post with higher qualification of Higher Secondary and Graduation, there is high rate of attrition in the MTS cadre.

Analysis and Recommendations
11.35.28 As per the recruitment rules for LDC, presently 5 percent of MTS can get promoted to LDC through limited departmental examination. Since government has already stopped direct recruitment for the clerical cadre and gradually phasing out the existing incumbents, this demand cannot be accepted. Moreover enhancement of promotional quota is an administrative matter to be considered by the relevant
administrative ministry.

Between the lines it can be read that the Government prevented the 7th Pay Commission to not consider the LDC/UDC issue positively and reiterated the wrong statement of the Government that that Government of India has stopped direct recruitment of LDC through Staff Selection as its recommendation. But the fact is that Staff Selection Commission is frequently conducting recruitment for the post of LDC and without the permission of the Government how they can done at their own. Combined higher secondary examination for the selection of LDC also has been conducted recently. If we take the intention of Government of phasing out the LDC post as true, then where is the alternative recommendation? Who will do the arduous work done by the young and energetic LDCs in the subordinate offices? It is to be noted that the normal ratio of LDC and UDC in subordinate offices is 5:2 and thus LDCs have been allocated responsible sections and in many smaller offices LDC alone is handling the work of entire Administration.

On the other hand rejecting Central Secretariat Clerical service demand of parity with DEO the commission observes “Even though the entry requirements are similar, historically the pay scales of the two posts have been different. Besides, they comprise two distinct cadres with different set of roles and responsibilities. Hence, the demand for parity of pay of LDC with DEOs cannot be acceded to by the Commission.”(Para 11.35.38).

Our view is that historically these cadres may be different set of roles but the fact is that functions of LDC are more complex than that of DEO and same was brought before the commission by various Associations/Administrative Authorities. Earlier pay Commissions have fixed Pay Scale to DEO considering their work on computer. But today LDCs are more expertise in computer than DEO for doing work in computer, but the demand of parity with DEO is rejected. Extract of Para 11.35.38 is given below:

Central Secretariat Clerical Service
11.35.38 The Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS) consists of the following grades:
i. Upper Division Clerk (GP 2400)
ii. Lower Division Clerk (GP 1900)
LDC and Data Entry Operator (DEO)
11.35.39 It has been demanded that LDC of CSCS drawing pay in GP 1900 be placed in GP 2400 at par with the DEOs on the grounds that post VI CPC, the entry requirements for the two posts is almost similar.

Analysis and Recommendations
11.35.40 Even though the entry requirements are similar, historically the pay scales of the two posts have been different. Besides, they comprise two distinct cadres with different set of roles and responsibilities. Hence, the demand for parity of pay of LDC with DEOs cannot be acceded to by the Commission.

From the above it is clear that Government is adamant on not granting pay scale to LDC & UDCs in subordinate offices at par with the duties assigned to them. Even though the 7th CPC claimed that they have recommended pay scales on the principle of equal pay for equal work, the genuine issue of LDC/UDC is ignored. Thus we are forced to represent against the recommendation to the Government/JCM (Staff Side). All our LDC/UDC friends are requested to raise the issue in their respective Association/Office to force them to represent the issue to the implementation committee for consideration. Also please join all action programmes including strike action, called by the JCM (Staff Side), as published in this web site from time to time, to combat the situation.

MERGER AND UPGRADATION OF GRADE PAY LDC & UDC – T.K.R. Pillai

MERGER AND UPGRADATION OF GRADE PAY LDC & UDC – T.K.R. Pillai

T.K.R. Pillai, General Secretary of All India Association of Administrative Staff(Non Gazetted) expressed his view on an order recently published by DoPT regarding the chage of Nomenaclature of LDC and UDC in Central Secretariat. We reproduced the article and given for your ready reference…

CHANGE OF NOMENACLATURE OF LDC & UDC IN CENTRAL SECRETARIAT

DOPT HAS DECIDED TO CHANGE THE NOMENCLATURE OF LDC & UDC OF CENTRAL SECRETARIAT OFFICES. BUT NOTHING IS HEARD IN RESPECT OF CHANGE OF NOMENCLATURE/MERGER OF LDCS AND UDCS OF SUBORDINATE OFFICES. IT IS TO BE NOTED THAT IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE FINALIZATION OF 6TH PAY COMMISSION REPORT, GOVERNMENT HAD UPGRADED THE PAY SCALE OF THE ASSISTANT IN CENTRAL SECRETARIAT FROM RS. 5500-9000 TO 6500-10500 THAT PAVED THEM TO GET AN EDGE OVER THE PAY OF THE ASSISTANTS OF SUBORDINATE OFFICES. LIKEWISE IT MAY BE A MOVE TO GIVE MORE BENEFITS TO THE LDC & UDCS OF CENTRAL SECRETARIAT IN 7TH CPC.

IT IS TO BE NOTED THAT THIS ASSOCIATION HAS CONTINUOUSLY RAISING THE MERGER AND UPGRADATION OF GRADE PAY LDC & UDC. THE CASE WAS SENT TO JCA SECTION WITH RECOMMENDATION BY THE DOPT BUT THE JCA RETURNED THE SAME TO DOPT WITH A REMARK THAT “THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF ANOMALY AND NO SUCH ITEM WAS BEFORE THE NATIONAL ANOMALY COMMITTEE” AND SUGGESTED THAT ESTABLISHMENT II MAY PROCESS THE CASES WITH THE CASE OF LDC & UDCS OF CENTRAL SECRETARIAT IN CONSULTATION WITH THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE. BUT DOPT HAS RETURNED THE CASE TO THIS ASSOCIATION WITH A DIRECTIVE TO TAKE UP THE SAME WITH MINISTRY OF FINANCE DIRECTLY.

IT IS WORTH TO MENTION HERE THAT JCA HAD RETURNED THE CASE WITH A PLEA THAT THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF ANOMALY AND NO SUCH ITEM WAS BEFORE THE NATIONAL ANOMALY COMMITTEE. WHEREAS ON 9TH JUNE WHEN THE LAST MEETING OF THE NATIONAL ANOMALY COMMITTEE HELD, ITEM NO. 4 –”UPGRADATION OF PAY BAND AND GRADE PAY OF LDCS AND UDCS” WAS DISCUSSED. WHEN THERE WAS NO ITEM WAS PENDING WITH THE JCA, THEN HOW THIS ITEM SURFACED IN THE ANOMALY COMMITTEE MEETING. SIMILARLY THE CONCERNED OFFICER IN DOPT HAD ORALY INFORMED ME THAT THE CASE OF LDC & UDC WAS RETURNED BECAUSE HIS SECTION IS DEALING THE CASES OF LDC & UDC OF CENTRAL SECRETARIAT ONLY AND THE LDC & UDC OF CENTRAL SECRETARIAT HAD NOT DEMANDED THEIR PAY UP-GRADATION.

THE STATE OF LDCS POSTED IN SUBORDINATE OFFICES HAD DISCUSSED IN THIS WEBSITE SEVERAL TIMES. THEY ARE ALLOCATED WITH WORK WORTH TO BE ALLOCATED TO UDC/ASSISTANT AND IN MOST OF THE CASES OFFICERS ARE TAKING DECISION ON THE FILE PUT UP BY THE LDCS WHERE AS IN CENTRAL SECRETARIAT SUCH FILES INITIATES BY UDC/ASSISTANT LEVEL. THUS IT IS HIGH TIME THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD TAKE A DECISION ON THE UPGRADATION OF GRADE PAY AND NOMENCLATURE OF LDC & UDCS WORKING IN THE SUBORDINATE OFFICES BEFORE THE FINALIZATION OF PAY COMMISSION REPORT.

ANOMALIES IN GRADE PAY: INDEFINITE FAST AT THE OFFICIAL RESIDENCE

Anomalies in Grade Pay between Ministerial Staff of MES, AFHQ & CSS: Indefinite Fast at the PM Office on 4th July, 2015

All India MES Admin Cadre and Ministerial Staff Association has planned an indefinite fast at the Official Residence of PM of India on 04.07.2015.  The details about the cause for the fasting is represented before the PM.

ALL INDIA M.E.S. ADMIN CADRE AND
MINISTERIAL STAFF ASSOCIATION
(RECOGNISED BY GOVT. OF INDIA, MIN OF DEF)

AIMESAC&MSA,/ CHQ /2015

30 May 2015

Shri Narendra Modi Ji,
Honble Prime Minister of India,
South Block, New Delhi-11001

INDEFINITE FAST AT THE OFFICIAL RESIDENCE OF PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA ON 04TH IULY 2015 ON ACCOUNT OF ANOMALIES IN GRADE PAY BETWEEN MINISTERIAL STAFF OF MES AND MINISTERIAL STAFF OF AFHQ AND CENTRE SECRETARIAT SERVICES UNDER PR 2008

Respected Sir,

1. The All India MES Adm Cadre and Ministerial Staff Association avails this opportunity to convey your honour its best compliments Warm regards, while putting the following problems before the Honble Prime Minister of India.

(a) GRADE PAY OF OFFICE SUPDT/STENO IN MES :- From 1st CPC to 5th CPC there is historical pay parity of Office Supdt of MES and Assistant .of Central Secretariat and AFHQ, but during Sept 2006 the Govt has upgraded the pay scale from Rs. 5500-175-9000 to 6500-200-10500 of Assistant of Central Secretariats through back door vide DOPT letter No. 20/ 29/ 2006. CS-II dt. 25 Sept 2006 (copy enclosed). Thereafter the matter was raised in the department JCM meeting of Min of Defence during July 2007 and it was told in the department JCM meeting that the matter is being referred to 6th CPC. The 6th CPC vide Para 3.1.14,(copy enclosed) of its report has clearly stated that there should be pay parity between field and secretariat staff upto the level of Assistant. Accordingly the pay of Office Supdt of MES and Assistant of Central Secretariats and AFHQ was equal. Again the DoP&T vide its letter No. 7/7/2008/CS-1(A) dt. 21 Dec 2009 (copy enclosed) has upgraded the grade pay of Assistant of Central Secretariats and AFHQ from Rs. 4200/- to Rs. 4600/- on the request of some Service Associations and individual Officials and ignored the recommendation of the expert body ie. VIth CPC by not granting similar pay scale for similarly situated staff i.e. Office Supdt. of MES. Although, the Assistant of Central Secretariat remains in Delhi throughout their entire services whereas the office supdts of Military Engineers Service are posted from one place to another after regulars intervals of times. The office supdt of MES is serving in peace, filed and high altitude area shoulder to shoulder with combatants as well as in AFHQ (in E-in-C’s Branch, Integrated HQ MoD) (Army) across the table of Assistant of AFHQ for a very long time. It is further submitted that the’ charter of duties of office supdt of MES is larger than the charter of duties of Assistant of Central Secretariat and AFHQ. The copies of charter of duties of office supdt of MES and Assistant of AFHQ are enclosed for perusal please. Therefore it is requested to please upgrade the pay scale of Office Supdt of MES in pre-revised pay scale from Rs. 6500-10500 to Rs. 7450-225-11500 as already upgraded for the Assistant of Central Secretariat. and AFHQ.

b) GRADE PAY OF UDC STENO III OF MES :- Similarly the Govt of India has upgraded the grade pay of 30% UDCs/Steno D of Central Secretariats and AFHQ from Rs. 2400/ – to Rs. 4200/ – by giving them NFSG grade while ignoring the UDCs of MES, although the 6th CPC vide Para 3.1.14 of its report has stated that there should be pay parity between field and secretariat staff up to the level of Assistants. Therefore, it is requested that suitable instructions may please be issued to upgrade the grade pay of UDCs of MES from Rs. 2400/ – to Rs. 4200/ – w.e.f. 01.01.2008 as already upgraded for UDCs servicing in Central Secretariat & AFHQ by the Govt vide DOPT letter No. 20 / 49 / 2009-CS-II(B) dt. 22.06.2011 (copy enclosed).

2. The Association has, already approached to the following authorities on the above issues :-

(a) DG (Pers) E-in-C’s Branch vide letter No. ‘AIMESCCGDEA/Thu/2009 dt. 18.06.09 (copy’ enclosed) and discussed the issue in all the meetings held in E-in-C’s Branch but no action has been taken.

Dated: 18.03.2015

To,

The Chief Controller of Accounts,
Ministry of Health & Family Welfare,
Room No. 147, ‘A’ Wing, Nirman Bhawan,
New Delhi–110011

Subject: – Settlement of the problems referred by the PAO, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Kolkata Unit.

Reference: – This Association’s letter No. AICAEA/HQ/C-1/2014/2252-54 dated 26-02-2014.

Madam,

With reference to the above and in pursuance of the discussion held with the Controller of Accounts, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on 10th February 2015, I would like to draw your kind attention to the following few lines –

1. Payment of Minimum wages to DEOs engaged in PAO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata:-

Through the letter dated 1st September 2014, the Unit Association of PAO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata had brought it to your kind notice that the outsourced employees engaged in the PAO, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Kolkata as Data Entry Operators have not only been receiving less pay then the rate prescribed by the Ministry of Labour but also lesser than their counterparts working in the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare itself. Alongwith its letter, the Unit Association had also forwarded a detailed note analyzing the entire fact for your perusal and favorable action.

As 10 posts of Accountant/Senior Accountant, 4 posts of LDCs and 4 posts of MTS were vacant in PAO, Ministry Of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata , it was decided by the CCA, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to recruit 5(Five) Data Entry Operators through third party (Contractor) to meet the shortfall. These DEOs were granted Rs. 339/- per day in spite of the fact that being Graduates and Computer trained, they fall under the category of “Highly Skilled” and they had been engaged against regular works being performed by the Accountant, Senior Accountant and LDC.

Data Entry Operators engaged in the Central Drug Laboratory, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata have been receiving daily wages @ Rs. 405/- and the Pay Accounts Office, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata is making payment of the Bills preferred by DDO concerned. The Copies of the Bills are enclosed herewith for your ready reference. Therefore, the DEOs working PAO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata are being paid less than their counterparts.

Moreover, the explanations below Part II of the Schedule of Government of India extra ordinary Gazette Notification No. 800 dated May 20th, 2009(copy enclosed) stipulated that-

(a) If there are two rates for the Highly Skilled category, the higher rate is to be protected (Explanation No. 2 below Part II of the Schedule). This fact has further been clarified vide Note of the order No. B-27(1)/2013 dated 1-4-2013 issued by the Dy. Chief Labour Commissioner (Central), Mumbai (copy enclosed).

(b) The minimum wage of DEO is to be determined after allowing Variable Dearness Allowances (explanation No. 7, below Part II of the Schedule).

(c) The minimum rates of wage include also the wage for weekly day of rest (explanation No.3 below Part II of the Schedule) which implies that pay is to be given for 26days and not 22days.

Further, the Ministry of Labour, Government of India vide OM No. 14(113)Misc. RLC (coord)/ 2012 dated 23rd January 2014 provided the detailed guidelines regarding engagement of workers through Contractors by the Ministries and Departments of Central Government (Copy enclosed).

In view of the above we request the following-

1. Wage to DEOs may be given for 26days instead of 22 days.

2. Discrimination in wages of DEO may be removed by granting the wage equal to the wage being paid to the DEOs of Central Drugs Laboratory, O/o the DDC (I) of ADC (I).

3. Variable Dearness Allowance may be given to DEOs twice in a year.

4. Higher rate of wage may be protected in r/o DEOs to determine the minimum wage.

5. The Ministry of Labour order No. 14(113)Misc.RLC(coord)/2012 dated 23rd January 2014 may be implemented in the matter of engagement of DEOs.

2. Filling up of vacant posts:-

In the year 2011, the office of the Controller General of Accounts issued orders directing the heads of the Civil Accounts organization to upload the data relating to vacancy to website of Staff Selection Commission within stipulated time. The arrangement was in operation in the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 also. Various Ministries and Departments of Civil Accounts organizations which had taken action promptly could fill up large number of vacancies as they were allotted candidates by the Staff selection Commission from among the qualified candidates of examinations of 2012 and 2013.

But the office of the CCA, Ministry of Health and family Welfare did not send its requirement to the Staff Selection Commission at that time and due to this the posts have been left vacant in this organization.

Therefore, we request you to kindly initiate steps for filling up of vacant posts immediately as the office is suffering from huge shortage of staff.

The PAO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kolkata Unit alongwith the West Bengal Branches of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II have been agitating for settlement of above demands. However, responding to an assurance of the authority, the Unit Association and the aforementioned Branch Associations had suspended their agitational programmes after holding three days continuous Dharna in January 2015. But it is nearly two months they have not yet received any favourable response from the authorities.

It will therefore, be highly appreciable, if you kindly intervene into the state of affairs and settle above issues at the earliest.

Thanking you,

Enclo: as stated above

Yours Sincerely,

(V. Bhattacharjee)
Secretary General

Dated the 19th February 2015

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:: Reintroduction of direct recruitment in LDC in Central Secretariat – meeting to discuss to elicit views regarding

The undersigned is directed to say that on the recommendations of the Committee on the Cadre Restructuring of CSS (3rd ), a proposal is under consideration of this Department for re-introduction of direct recruitment in the grade of LDC in the Central Secretariat.

2. In this regard, it has been desired to elicit views of the stakeholders in the matter. Accordingly, all  Ministries/Departments, Service Associations and individual officers are requested to submit their views on the issue urgently, latest by 10 March 2015. The views may be furnished via e-mail at uscs1-dopt@nic.in

3. A brief on the issue is attached.

(V. Srinivasaragavan)
Under Secretary to the Government of India
Tele.: 24629412

To
All Ministries/Departments
Service Associations and individual officers

 

REINTRODUCTION OF DIRECT RECRUITMENT IN THE GRADE OF LDC

As a part of first cadre review of CSS in the year 2003, direct recruitment to the Lower Division Grade (LDC) of CSCS was stopped. Eighty Five percent of the posts of LDCs were then filled up through direct recruitment quota and accordingly, after implementation of the first cadre review, 85% of the posts of
LDCs falling vacant every year are being abolished. The remaining posts are filled up by promotion from the erstwhile Group D employees (now MTS). Over the years, strength of LDCs in the Ministries/ Departments has come down substantially from the original level of about 5300.

2. The Second Administrative Reforms Commission endorsed the
decision of phasing out of direct recruitment in LDCs. The Core Group on Administrative Reforms (CGAR) also agreed with the recommendations of ARC. However, the Group of Ministers did not agree phasing out of LDCs and directed that the matter be reconsidered.

3. As the issue of reintroduction of direct recruitment in the LDC has multifarious dimensions / implications like change in work culture in the Govt. of India, E-governance, impact on Multi-Tasking Staff, UDC, Assistant cadre etc. it was referred to the 3rd cadre restructuring committee of CSS.

4. The pros and cons of reintroduction of direct recruitment in LDCs may be as under:

Pros

(i) More availability of manpower in the Sections. Presently, Central Secretariat is heavily top loaded with only 6700 Assistants feeding to 3200 SOs, 1600 USs and 1200 DS/Dirs;

(ii) Salary of a LDC is much less comparing that of an Assistant;

(iii) More continuity and institutional memory as compared to outsourced staff;

(iv) If manpower is to be increased at lower level it could be either at Assistant level or at LDC level. Direct recruitment at LDC level with Promotion to UDC and Assistant would create less problem of stagnation than increased direct recruitment at Assistant level;

(v) Quality of direct recruit LDCs is reasonable.

Cons:

(i) We would be going back from the principles of officer oriented system in the Gentral Secretariat;

(ii) In the era of e-governance, paperless office and multi skilling, maintaining a large cadre of LDCs to carry out routing office jobs manually may be regressive;

(iii) The savings shown in the first cadre restructuring of CSS would disappear;

(iv) LDCs in terms of salary, pension contribution and other benefits would cost much more than outsourced staff;

(iv) There could be conflict of promotional opportunities between direct recruit LDCs and Assistants

5. However, in the absence of LDCs, a number of Ministries/Departments have resorted to engaging out-sourced staff to manage basic activities like diary/dispatch, movement of files/papers, typing etc. and there is a functional need to strengthen the institutional memory and level of commitment cannot be expected from outsourced staff.

6. The 3rd CRC has recommended re-introduction DR in LDC in limited manner with simultaneous reduction in DR in Assistant grade.

7. However, in view of increased use of information technology tools and progressively more officer oriented system there is a much less requirement of ministerial staff than previously and therefore if direct recruitment in LDC is reintroduced it should be limited in number they should mostly be utilised in regulatory ministries where the volume of correspondence/ dak/ diarizing work
is higher.

8. In the changed IT environment, the intake of 200-250 may be adequate  to arrive at the sustainable number of about 2000 LDCs and equal number of UDCs over the years with the combined strength of 4000.

9. To provide adequate promotional avenues to the newly recruited LDCs, the percentage of intake of DR Assistant may be reduced to 60% (from the existing 75%) leaving 40% of the vacancies in the Assistant grade to be filled up by seniority/LDCE quota from the UDC grade. Reduction in direct recruitment in Assistant would in the long run reduce stagnation in senior grades of CSS.
