Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh delegation meets Dr Jitendra Singh

A delegation of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh’s Industrial Unit, “Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh”, held a meeting with Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence. The delegation also requested the Minister to issue directions to expedite the follow-up pertaining to LTC cases pending in the DoPT.

The members of the delegation sought to draw Dr Jitendra Singh’s attention to an earlier meeting with him wherein they had brought to his notice that there is 5.85 lakh sanctioned strength of Defence Civilians, but the existing strength is only 3.98 lakh as mentioned in the report of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Thus, there is a deficiency of 1.87 lakh civilian manpower and there are about 20,000 aspirants who are seeking appointment on compassionate grounds. The members of the delegation recalled that Dr Jitendra Singh had given a positive response to them and subsequently also written to the Defence Minister to take cognizance of the issue.

As per an OM of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), there is a provision to give compassionate appointment to one of the dependants for the survival of the family in case the employee unfortunately dies during the service period leaving the family behind. But the provision for such appointment is limited to 5% of the vacancies, as a result of which, according to the members of delegation, a large number of wards are kept waiting for appointment on compassionate ground because of the ceiling.

The delegation referred to an earlier letter written by Dr Jitendra Singh to the Minister of Defence, Shri Manohar Parrikar wherein the former had requested for intervention by the Defence Ministry so that the DoPT could accordingly proceed in the matter. They requested Dr Jitendra Singh to take up the issue once again with the Ministry of Defence so that their demand could be addressed. Dr Jitendra Singh assured the members of delegation that he would again seek the views of the Minister of Defence and try to work out whatever feasible.

Defence Civilian Employees Federation BPMS has address letter ref. no. BPMS/MoD/Payment/186(8/1R) dated 27 Dec.2016 (copy enclosed) to the MoD, on the above subject.

It has been requested that the serving employees in the Chennai area may please be paid the salary for the month of Dec 2016 in cash.

In view of the position reported by BPMS, it is apprehended that the ATM systems and the computer network may not be functioning in the storm affected area, which may not be allowing the public to access the electronic banking facilities. It is felt that the hardship being experienced by the affected employees should be addressed with due sensitiveness. It is suggested that necessary instructions may please be issued to the pay disbursing authorities, located in the storm affected area, to explore the possibility of disbursing the salary for the month of Dec 2016 to the Government employees in cash, in accordance with the ceilings/instructions prescribed by the Government

Grant of Advance for Cancer treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Hospitals / Private Nursing Home under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules

Grant of Advance for Cancer treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Hospitals / Private Nursing Home under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules

BHARATIYA PRATIRAKSHA MAZDOOR SANGH
(AN ALL INDIA FEDERATION OF DEFENCE WORKERS)
(AN INDUSTRIAL UNIT OF B.M.S.)
(RECOGNISED BY MINISTRY OF DEFENCE, GOVT. OF INDIA)

REF: BPMS / MH&FW / Advance / 156 (8/1/L)

Dated: 25.11.2016

To,
The Secretary,
Govt. of India, Min. of Health & Family Welfare,
156 – A, Nirman Bhawan,
New Delhi 110001.

Subject: Grant of Advance for Cancer treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Hospitals / Private Nursing Home under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules.

Respected Sir,
Considering the hardships being faced by cancer patient, vide O.M. No.1967/2013/DEL/CGHS/SZ/D52/CGHS(P) , Dated 30.12.2014 Department of Health & Family Welfare, CGHS (Policy) Division delegated the powers to HOD’s for permission / ex-post facto approval for cancer treatment taken in non-empanelled hospitals subject to reimbursement being restricted to CGHS rates or actual expenditure, whichever is less.

Further, as per O.M. No. s.12020/4/97-CGHS (P), Dated 07.03.2000 of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (Department of Health) the Heads of Departments (HODs) may decide the cases of reimbursement of medical claims in respect of treatment obtained in emergency at private hospitals/private nursing home/private clinic, subject to item-wise ceiling as per rates prescribed for CGHS beneficiaries without financial limit on the total amount to be reimbursed.

Now, it has been experienced that a government employee covered under CGHS / CS(MA) Rules and resides in Kanpur, obtains the permission of Head of Department for treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Nursing Home/Hospital (for example Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre, New Delhi). After surgical treatment of Cancer, he needs post operative treatment (Chemotherapy) and he wants to continue his treatment from the same non-empanelled private nursing home/hospital. But the HOD refuses to grant advance for post operative treatment on the plea that advance may be granted in emergency for treatment in non-empanelled private nursing home and post operative treatment of cancer (Chemotherapy) does not fall under the category of emergency. In absence of advance, such employee finds himself unable to get treated and cured and that add insult to injury.

In such circumstances, you are requested to issue necessary orders so that the beneficiaries covered under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules may be granted medical advance being restricted to CGHS rates for post operative treatment of Cancer obtained from nonempanelled private nursing home/hospital.

Thanking you,

Sincerely yours
(MUKESH SINGH)

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to power point presentation in the meeting held on 18.11.2016 under the chairmanship of Defence Secretary on the allowances payable on the recommendations of 7th CPC.

Some of the following issues raised during the meeting, need to be considered by the committee in addition to the points mentioned by BPMS vide letter cited under reference:

1. Extra Work Allowance (Chapter No. 8.3) (Para 8.3.23):
(a) Caretaking Allowance (Para 8.3.20) at the rate of 10% of Basic Pay is being paid to Group ‘C’ Staff. Now 7th CPC has recommended for 2% of Basic Pay per month. It is demanded that this Care taking Allowance should also be admissible to Defence Civilians performing the similar duties.

2. Allowances related to Knowledge Updates (Chapter 8.4)
(a) Professional Update Allowance (Para 8.4.7): This allowance should be extended to Group ‘A’, ‘B’ & ‘C’ incumbents engaged in Ordnance Development Centre (OFB), Group ‘B’ & ‘C’ of DRDO and Laboratory Technicians in Pathology of Govt Hospitals.

3. Allowances related to Working on Holidays (Chapter 8.6)
(a) Holiday Monetary Compensation (Para 8.6.6): Group ‘B’ Gazetted Supervisory Staff (Junior Works Manager) in Ord Fys have to work on Sunday and other holidays. This allowance should be extended to this Cadre also.

4. Qualification Allowance (Chapter 8.9)
(a) Air Worthiness Certificate Allowance (Para 8.9.5): At present this allowance is being paid to Technical Tradesman in Aircraft trade @ Rs. 225/- to 450/- per month. But their Civilian counterparts are not granted this allowance. This should be looked into.

5. Allowances related to Risk and Hardship (Chapter 8.10)
(a) Boiler Watch Keeping Allowance (Para 8.10.7): Presently it is admissible to Boiler Watch Keepers on Naval Ships @ Rs. 3000/- per month. Similar nature of work is performed by the Boiler Attendants of Ord Fys. Hence, this allowance should be admissible to Boiler Attendants of OFB.

(b) Field Area Allowance (Para 8.10.18):
This allowance is granted to Defence, CAPF and Indian Coast Guard. Civilian counterparts of Ministry of Defence should also be granted the Field Area Allowance.

(c) Operation Theatre Allowance (Para 8.10.35):
This allowance @ Rs. 240/ per month is granted to Staff Nurse in Central Government Hospitals, who work in ICU/Operation Theatre. This federation is not agree with the 7th CPC’s recommendation (Para 8.10.80) to abolish this allowance as the amount is meagre rate. Hence, this allowance should be continued and enhanced.

(d) Submarine Technical Allowance (Para 8.10.54):
It is granted to Naval Artificers and Mechanicians for the period they are deployed for submarine maintenance duties. The present rate is ₹300 pm. Civilian counterparts of Navy should also be granted this allowance.

6. Allowance related to Travel (Chapter 8.15)
(a) Daily Allowance (Para 8.15.15): The 7th CPC has recommended for reimbursement of Travelling Charges for Level 5 and below at the rate of Rs. 113 per day. This is very meagre amount. Hence, it should be enhanced to Rs. 200 per day.

(b) TA on Transfer (Para 8.15.41):
The 7th CPC has recommended for ‘reimbursement of charges on transportation of personal effects’ at the rate of Rs. 25 per km for Level 5 and Rs. 15 per km for Level 4 and below category. It is not understandable how a transporter will discriminate among the employees of different categories for rate for transportation by road. Hence, it is demanded that the rate for transportation by road should be equal for all categories of employees.

This is submitted for your kind consideration and necessary action.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

Seeking of Clarification regarding Pay Fixation in 7th CPC : BPMS

REF: BPMS/MOD/7th CPC/60(7/3/L)

Dated: 01.10.2016

To,
The Dy Secretary (CP),
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
‘B’ Wing, Sena Bhawan,
New Delhi – 110011

 

Subject: Seeking of Clarification regarding Option & Pay Fixation in 7th CPC.

Respected Sir,

Part -1

 With due regards, your attention is invited to Para 4.(2) of the Gazette Notification on Resolution (No. 1-2/2016-IC, Dated 25.07.2016) issued by Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) which reads as under:

4. (1) The Pay Matrix, in replacement of the Pay Bands and Grade Pays as in force immediately prior to the notification of this Resolution, shall be as specified in Annexure I in respect of civilian employees.

(2) With regard to fixation of pay of the employee in the new Pay Matrix as on 1st day of January, 2016, the existing pay (Pay in Pay Band plus Grade Pay) in the pre-revised structure as on 31st day of December, 2015 shall be multiplied by a factor of 2.57. The figure so arrived at is to be located in the Level corresponding to employee’s Pay Band and Grade Pay or Pay Scale in the new Pay Matrix. If a Cell identical with the figure so arrived at is available in the appropriate Level, that Cell shall be the revised pay; otherwise the next higher cell in that Level shall be the revised pay of the employee.

(3) After fixation of pay in the appropriate Level as specified in sub-paragraph (2) above, the subsequent increments in the Level shall be at the immediate next Cell in the Level.

Whereas the Rule 7 of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 reads as under:

7. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure:

(1) The pay of a Government servant who elects, or is deemed to have elected under rule 6 to be governed by the revised pay structure on and from the 1st day of January, 2016, shall, unless in any case the President by special order otherwise directs, be fixed separately in respect of his substantive pay in the permanent post on which he holds a lien or would have held a lien if such lien had not been suspended, and in respect of his pay in the officiating post held by him, in the following manner, namely:-

 (A) in the case of all employees:

 (i) the pay in the applicable Level in the Pay Matrix shall be the pay obtained by multiplying the existing basic pay by a factor of 2.57, rounded off to the nearest rupee and the figure so arrived at will be located in that Level in the Pay Matrix and if such an identical figure corresponds to any Cell in the applicable Level of the Pay Matrix, the same shall be the pay, and if no such Cell is available in the applicable Level, the pay shall be fixed at the immediate next higher Cell in that applicable Level of the Pay Matrix.

 Further, Annexure of Implementation Cell, 7th CPC (O.M. No. 1-5/2016-IC, Dated 29.07.2016) clearly states that the Basic Pay (Pay in the applicable Pay Band plus applicable Grade Pay or basic pay in the applicable scale) in the pre-revised structure as on 01.01.2016 will be multiplied by 2.57.

 

Point of Doubt No.1: Some of the Local Account offices are saying that as per Para 4.(2) of Resolution, the Basic Pay ( pre-revised Pay in Pay Band plus Grade Pay as on 31.12.2015, not as on 01.01.2016) will be multiplied by 2.57.

Kindly clarify which basic pay will be multiplied by 2.57:

 (a) pre-revised Pay in Pay Band plus Grade Pay as on 31.12.2015
Or
(b) pre-revised Pay in Pay Band plus Grade Pay as on 01.01.2016

 Effect in both conditions may be illustrated below: The pay of an employee “XYZ” was Rs. 12200 in PB-1 plus 2800 GP as on 31.12.2015 and on completion of 10 yrs regular service, he was granted financial upgradation on 01.01.2016 in the Grade pay of 4200. Thus his pre-revised basic pay was become Rs. 12650 in PB-2 plus Rs. 4200 GP as on 01.01.2016.

In such condition, LAO is fixing his pay as under :

(a) Pre – Revised Basic Pay as on 31.12.2015 : 12200 + 2800 = 15000
(b) Amount (a) is multiplied by 2.57 : 15000 x 2.57 = 38550
(c) Revised Pay in Pay Matrix in Level 5 : 39200
(d) Pay after giving one increment in : 40400 Level 5 on 01.01.2016
(e)Pay in upgraded level 6 (GP 4200) : 41100 as on 01.01.2016

As per federation’s interpretation, the fixation will be as under :

(a) Pre-Revised Basic Pay as on 31.12.2015 : 12200 + 2800 = 15000
(b) Pre-Revised Basic Pay as on 01.01.2016 : 12650 + 4200 = 16850 due to fixation benefit under FR 22.(I)(a)(1)
(c) Amount (b) is multiplied by 2.57 : 16850 x 2.57 = 43304
(d) Pay in upgraded level 6 (GP 4200) : 43600 as on 01.01.2016

Exemption of Road Toll Tax to Defence Civilians

The Dy Secretary (CP)

Subject: Exemption of Road Toll Tax to Defence Civilians

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 65 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation BPMS submitted that Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways have issued a notification vide Notice No. NH 11065/12/2003 P&M, dated 15.09.2004 to Secretary, PWD of all States/Union Territories and National Highways Authority of India clarifying that the provisions of Indian Tolls (Army and Air Force) Act, 1901 is applicable to all States and National Highways whereby Army personnel are exempted from paying tolls on roads and highways in the States/Union Territories for their private vehicles irrespective of whether they are on duty or not.

This Federation has firm belief that the defence civilians are also integral part of Defence Forces and they perform their duties in almost similar conditions of uniform personnel without any extra financial benefits. Hence, they (Defence civilians) also deserve to be granted the benefits to some extent on par with uniform personnel.

In this regard, D(Mov) offered its comments (copy enclosed for ready reference) that the subject matter was not being dealt with by D(Mov).

Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that Defence Civilians may also be exempted from paying tolls on roads and highways in the States/Union Territories for their private vehicles.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

(4400 to 7440) plus GP Rs. 1600/- with 14 years regular service in the grade; 7% from Photographer in the Pay band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service. From above it is seen that Leading Hand Fire should have more qualification in comparison to the other feeder categories for Supervisor (NT) whereas all the incumbents have to perform the same responsibility with the same Grade Pay, i.e. Rs. 2400/- (Pre Revised Rs. 4000 to 6000).

It is to be kept in the mind that Vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) Notification G.S.R. 622(E), dated 29.08.2008 CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 has been introduced and the First Schedule Part-B, Section II states that Station Officer’s pay scale Rs. (4000 to 6000) (Fire Fighting Staff) has been upgraded to Rs. (4500 to 7000) and revised to GP Rs. 2800/-, whereas Supervisor (NT) is being granted the GP Rs. 2400/- on promotion from the post of Leading Hand Fire. Thus, the provisions of SRO 30 have not been framed considering the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 as the qualification of only one of the feeder posts Leading Hand Fire has been enhanced but the Grade Pay of promotional post Supervisor (NT) for Fire Fighting Staff has not been enhanced to Rs. 2800/-

In this regards, comments offered by D(Estt./NG) is enclosed for your ready reference. Therefore, your attention is invited to Rule 6 of SRO 30 which empowers the Central Government to relax the provisions of these rules to any class or category of persons and you are requested to take appropriate action so that existing Leading Hand Fire incumbents who are not fulfilling the requisite qualification may also be promoted to the post of Supervisor (NT) by granting relaxation in qualification as mentioned hereinabove.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

Increase in Retirement age to 65 for Doctors of OFB

Enhancement in the age of superannuation of Doctors of Ordnance Factory Board (Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence)

Minister of State, Government of India,
Ministry of Personnel, PG & Pension,
North Block, New Delhi 110001

Subject: Enhancement in the age of superannuation of Doctors of Ord Fy Board (Department of Defence Production, Min of Def).

Respected Sir,

With due regards, your attention is invited to the speech of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Sri Narendra Modi which he delivered on 26th May, 2016 in Saharanpur (U.P.) in a rally to observe the second anniversary of his Government, which was as under:

There is a shortage of doctors. In government hospitals, their retirement is 60 years in some states, 62 in some others. If adequate number of medical institutes were there, then we would have more doctors and would not feel the shortage. It is difficult to make doctors in two years but poor families cannot be forced to live without doctors.

Therefore from Uttar Pradesh, I want to announce this to my countrymen that this week our government’s Cabinet will take a decision within a week and the retirement age of our doctors, whether in states or Government of India, would be made 65 years instead of 60 or 62.

Honouring the promise of Prime Minister, the Department of Personnel & Training, MoP, PG & P, GOI issued Notification (GSR No. 567-E, Dated 31.05.2016) for amendment in FR 56 (bb) whereby the age of superannuation in respect of General Duty Medical Officers and Specialists included in Teaching, Non-Teaching and Public Health Sub-cadres of Centre Health Service has been enhanced to 65 yrs.

Considering the huge shortage of Specialists (75%) & GDMOs (25%) in Indian Ordnance & Ordnance Equipment Factories (Department of Defence Production, Min of Defence) this issue was brought to notice of Hon’ble Defence Minister, Shri Manohar Parrikar by this federation and requested him to take appropriate action to enhance the retirement age of IOFHS Cadre.

In turn Hon’ble Defence Minister assured for extension of coverage of FR 56(bb) in favour of IOFHS Cadre forthwith. Thereafter, in the month of August, 2016 MoD has sent a proposal to DoP&T for necessary approval / action and to expedite that the Secretary, Department of Defence Production also wrote a DO Letter to Secretary, DoP&T to expedite the matter but the file is moving from one Ministry / Department to another.

It is worth to mention here that Min of Railways, Home Affairs, Municipality Corporation of Delhi etc. have already enhanced the superannuation age of their Doctors and meanwhile Min of Health & Family Welfare has clarified vide F.No. Z.16024/11/2016-CHS.V Dated 30.08.2016 that Departments / Ministries may take decision, with the approval of their respective competent authorities on the enhancement of the age of superannuation of doctors.

Now the time has come for Bureaucratic System to respect, accept & adopt the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s 3S Speed, Skill & Scale to resolve the issues of Government Employees.

Therefore, you are requested to issue necessary directives to the concerned authorities to extend the provisions of FR 56(bb) in respect of all the doctors of OFB so that the organization as well as the incumbents may also be benefitted with enhanced age of superannuation of 65 yrs with effect from 31.05.2016.

Thanking you.

Thereupon, for extension of coverage of FR 56(bb) in favour of IOFHS Cadre, in the month of August, 2016 MoD has sent a proposal to DoP&T for necessary approval / action and to expedite it, the Secretary, Department of Defence Production also wrote a ‘DO Letter’ to Secretary, DoP&T to expedite the matter but the file is moving from one Ministry / Department to another.

In such circumstances, being the competent authority of Min of Defence, you are requested to approve the proposal of enhancement of superannuation of doctors of OFB without obtaining the permission of DoP&T as the other Ministries like MHA, Railways etc. have already done.

Thanking you.

Subject: Agitational Programme to be held from 22.08.2016 to 27.08.2016.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is hoped that all of you are well and busy in accelerating trade union activities. As all of you know that the notification and the revised pay rules related to 7th CPC have been promulgated by the Government without any change as it was recommended by 7th CPC. Neither Pay Commission nor the Government paid any heed to our demands and thereby we are constrained to take some agitational steps.

In this regard, a mass rally has been scheduled at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on 29.08.2016 to protest anti-employee attitude of the Government and to constrain the Government for paying heed to our genuine demands. It is worth to mention here that prior to Cabinet Meeting on 7th CPC held on 29 June, 2016; NJCA had announced an indefinite strike to be commenced from 11 July, 2016. But it bowed before the pressure exerted by the Government and cancelled the strike when grief, sorrow and discontentment of the employees were on its culmination erupted by anti-employee attitude of the Government. The postponement of the strike by NJCA has jolted the trade union movement and put a question mark on the worthy of existence of the unions.

There is a need to prepare ourselves and make aware others with respect to our demands, continuous struggles and humongous Delhi rally. To fulfill the above purpose a one week start up programme from 22.08.2016 to 27.08.2016 has been scheduled to protest anti-employee and antiprogressive attitude of the Government. In the programme, Gate meetings, Slogan Shouthing, Demonstration at main gate etc will be conducted as per feasibility. On the last day of the Programme viz 27.08.2016 a memorandum addressed to Hon’able Prime Minister has to be submitted

through Hon’able Member of Parliament of your constituency.

Your support for the said programme is solicited.

Hon’ble Member of Parliament,

Subject : Discontentment amongst the Government Employees against Central Government’s Cabinet Decision on the 7th CPC recommendations.

Hon’ble Sir,

1. The disappointment and discontentment prevailing amongst the Central Government employees, their families and their colleagues of all the State Governments, who were waiting eagerly from the Central Government Cabinet to overturn the some of the excruciating recommendations of 7th CPC have compelled us to draw your kind attention towards it.

2. The Cabinet’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC has jolted to the faith of employees who believe in the assurances given in the format & informal meetings between the Ministers of Union Government and trade union/federations including affiliated to Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh.

3. It is regretted to submit that the annoyance of all the lowest rung employees has reached in a manner wherein they are flaying the Central Government for not taking note of their hope of enhancing the minimum pay from Rs 18000/- and multiplying factor from 2.57, rate of interest from 3% to 5% and non-merging any of the Grade Pay of PB-1 & PB-2. Also neither New Pension Scheme has been scrapped nor the Government assured for minimum guaranteed pension for the recruits on or after 01.01.2004 nor the arrears of enhanced Bonus have yet been paid despite passing of reasonable time in accepting the amendment to the Bonus Act.

4. It is worth to mention that while considering the recommendations of 7th CPC, the assurances of the responsible Union Ministers after lengthy deliberations with the reps of this Federation have been totally ignored which resultant the awkward position of the Federation too. It is well known fact that the Union Government’s decision shall not affect the Central employees only but shall affect the State employees too since by now and large, the identical report is to be implemented by them also.

5. Being the only hope from your kind goodself, we look forward for interfering into the matter in order of avoiding of becoming the image of anti-workers of the Government both at the level of Central as well State employees.

With deep regards.

Sincerely yours

Now, Govt of India, Min of Finance (Department of Expenditure) has passed & adopted the Resolution (No. 1-2/2016-IC, Dated 25.07.2016) regarding 07th CPC recommendations on revised pay structure with effect from 01.01.2016.

Hence, all the industrial & non-industrial employees of Ordnance & Ordnance Equipment Factories, who are deputed on overtime, have become eligible for payment of overtime allowance on the revised pay under the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 in compliance of statutory order of Section 59 of the Factories Act, 1948.

It is worth to mention here that regarding fixation of pay and payment of arrears, instructions have been issued vide Implementation Cell, 7th CPC O.M. No. 1-5/2016-IC, Dated 29.07.2016.

Therefore, you are requested to issue necessary directives for the payment of overtime allowance on the revised pay of 07th CPC and also to co-relate the piece work & incentive accordingly.

Sub :- AGITATIONAL PROGRAMME ON 7TH CPC

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Sadar Namaskar.

1. As we are aware that after a long deliberation between the stake holders and the Departments/Ministries, concerned Secretaries had submitted their recommendations on the 7th CPC to the Empowered Committee and after considering it, the Central Cabinet has accepted the recommendations of the 7th CPC on 29th June 2016 ignoring the submissions of this Federation.

2. The Govt has not enhanced the Minimum Pay from Rs 18000/- to 24000/-, Multiplying Factor from 2.57 to 3.42, rate of increment from 3% to 5%, non-merging of any of the pay scale of Group ‘C’, non-resolving the issue of MACP etc.

3. This has caused discontentment amongst the employees. It has to be kept in the mind that the then Defence & Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley and MoS of PMO Dr. Jitendra Singh had assured the delegation of BPMS/BMS to resolve the above issues in favour of the employees. But now the Govt has reneged to its promises.

4. In this situation, Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh, Govt Employees National Confederation & BPMS have decided to observe an agitational programme with immediate effect till 08th July 2016. In this agitational programme, Gate Meetings, Slogan shouting, Dharna, Procession, March, Demonstration at Main Gate etc will be organized as per feasibility. On the last day (08.07.2016) unions will submit a memorandum to respective Head of Departments & local Hon’ble Member of Parliament addressed to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India with a copy to BPMS.

5. Further, Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra, Convener, NJCA has requested to BPMS vide his letter (No NJC/2016/07th CPC dated 07.06.2016) to support in the proposed indefinite strike commencing from 11th July 2016. This Federation has considered the same and decided that all the affiliated Unions will support the indefinite strike from 11th July 2016.

We hope for full support and cooperation to give a great success to the programme.

With regards.

Subject: Incentive Scheme for the employees of Ordnance factories.

Respected Sir,

With due regards, it is submitted that all the 03 recognized federations have already reflected their views and recommended to extend the existing incentive scheme (incentive bonus) for examiners deputed for quality control at par with the maintenance workers in Ord & Ord Equipment Factories.

It is learnt that all the Ord & Ord Equipment Factories have also submitted the necessary inputs to the OFB in response to OFB letter No.754/PER/POLICY(PT), Dated 23.11.2015, 02.12.2015 & 17.12.2015 on the subject matter. Since then, the beneficiaries (examiners) are eagerly waiting for the compliance of the recommendations.

In such circumstances, you are requested to take appropriate action expeditiously so that the examiners may get the incentive bonus at par with the maintenance workers without further delay.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

(MUKESH SINGH)

Secretary/BPMS & Member, JCM-II Level Council (MOD)
