Expectations for 50% DA Merger and Retirement age turn into disappointments
‘All Predictions are governed by the law of probability’. Based on this principle everybody started predict something about 50% DA Merger, Retirement Age and Interim relief. But none of which have materialized.
The print and e- media made the people believe that the central government had done lot of things including above for central government employees. But it was merely media hype. Apart from 7th pay commission approval government had done nothing for central government employees.
There is a saying “Never get too attached to someone, because attachments lead to expectations and expectations lead to disappointments”
But it is not true here in respect of central government employees. They are bound to expect something like 50% DA merger and interim relief from government, as the federations were assured by central government some of their demand would be considered. Based on this assurance they deferred their Strike call for which 85% of employees mandated.
So there is nothing wrong in their expectation from the central government for considering the demands of Merger of 50% DA and granting interim relief.
But central government made this saying true, “Expectations are setting one up for disappointment”

Reference is invited to BSNL’s letter Nos.BSNL/Admn-I/14-15/9(pt.) dated 09.04.2012 and dated 11.1.2013 regarding extension of CGHS facilities to retired BSNL employees. The matter has been examined in consultation with the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and it has been decided that :-
i) The retired employees, who are in receipt of Central Civil Pension/Pro-rata pension only from Central Civil Estimates are eligible for joining CGHS, other retired employees of BSNL are not eligible for CGHS.
ii) Since CGHS is in operation only at 25 select locations in the country, the retired employees of BSNL who are in receipt of Central Civil Pension and therefore eligible for CGHS facilities, may also be considered for providing with an option to choose either CGHS or BSNL-MRS post retirement as per their convenience, in recognition of their services rendered to DoT / BSNL.
2. However, it may be noted that the retired BSNL employees who opt for CGHS would have to pay the requisite fee to CGHS as applicable to Government retirees.

Sub: Correlation of Piece Work Rates after implementation of 6th CPC pay scales.
I am directed to state that the question of Correlation of piece work rates in the Ordnance Factories Organisation to the revised pay scales, on the basis of recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission has been under consideration of the Government for some time and the President has been pleased to decided on the implementation of the new scheme of correlation of piece work rates as indicated below :-
i) Piece work rates would be correlated to the minimum of the pay band-I + GP Rs.1900 i.e. Rs.5200 + Rs.1900 = Rs.7100/- for all category/grades of workers deployed on piece work system.
ii) The difference between the actual basic pay of a worker and Rs.7100/- shall be paid to him as a separate element as “Incremental Pay”.
iii) The production warrants will be issued in terms of times without 25% built-in incentive. However, as per existing procedure relevant to preparation of wage rolls for piece workers and labour costing, output hours will be reckoned as standard Man Hours (SMH) plus 25% built in incentive.
iv) The time estimates in all the existing labour rate forms will be reviewed as per production requirement.
v) The existing ceiling of 75% on piece work profit will continue.
2. The above orders will take effect from the date of issue of this letter.

Sub: - Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
We have gone through the Terms of Reference of 7th Central Pay Commission approved and notified by the Government on 28.02.2014. We find that the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government is at variance in many respects to the Draft Terms of Reference the Staff Side had submitted to you on 25.10.2013 after holding in-house discussion on 24.10.2013.
At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24.10.2013, it was agreed that the Government would consider our suggestions in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of the Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter.
We regret to inform you that no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the Official Side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference. We find that the Government has rejected the suggestions of Staff Side for either taking a decision in the matter of Interim Relief, Merger of DA, representation of labour nominee in the Commission itself, inclusion of the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the purview of the 7th CPC, bringing parity in pension between the past and present pensioners, covering the employees appointed on or after 01.01.2004 within the ambit of the Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, date of effect, settlement of the pending items in the National Anomaly Committee etc. or referring those issues to the Commission itself for an Interim Report.
Besides, we are to state that the existing Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) Scheme, being a bilateral agreement, cannot be subjected to scrutiny and examination by the 7th CPC.
We, therefore request you to kindly convene a meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM) to discuss the issue, so as to make amendments to the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government arbitrarily.
