DOPT : Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee

DOPT : Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee

 Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel Training


North Block, New Delhi
Dated the 30th October, 2017


Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra

Secretary, Staff-Side National Council,

JCM 13-C, Ferozshah Road,

New Delhi-110001

Subject:— Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee — Comments of DoPT regarding.


I am directed to refer to your letters no. NC-JCM-2017/7th CPC Anomaly dated 16th August, 2017 and 31th August, 2017 with which a total of 18 items have been sent to DoPT for discussion in the NAC meetings. These 18 items are about various issues over which, the Staff-Side has opined, anomaly has arisen as a result of the 7th CPC’s recommendations or absence of them.

2. On the other hand, DoPT after examining them in the light of the three postulates which, as described in DoPT’s OM. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017, would constitute anomaly is of the view that there are certain items in the lists sent which are not in accord with them and hence cannot be called anomalies as such notwithstanding the merit that they may have otherwise. There are also certain items which should be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committees of the other administrative Ministries concerned. A few items are those which, for a detailed examination, need more relevant documents/papers etc. These have been briefly described below:

Si. No
Anomaly     in computation          of Minimum Wage
against the Minimum Wage decided to be Rs. 18000/- by the Govt. w.e.f.
01.01.2016, the Staff-Side has said that this should be not less than
Rs. 26,000/-and the multiplication factor ought to have been 3.714 and
not 2.57.
have further asked for the pay matrix to be changed. Objecting to the
methodology adopted by the 7th CPC in computing the Minimum Wage, they
have given a number of reasons like the retail prices of the commodities
quoted by the Labour Bureau being irrational, adoption of the 12
monthly average of the retail price being contents to the Dr. Avkrovd f
ormula, the website of the Agriculture Ministry giving the retail prices
of commodities forming the basis of computation of minimum wage
provides a different picture, so on and so forth.
when one compares this item with the three situations given in DoPT’s
OM. No. 11/2/2016-jCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017,
it does not appear that this satisfies any of them to be treated as an
3% Increment in all stages
Staff-Side argues that in spite of the foreword to the Report making it
clear in para 1.19 that the prevailing rate of increment is considered
quite satisfactory and has been retained, an illustrative list appended
by them shows instances where the pay, gone up after the addition of
annual increment by 3%, falls short of what it would have been. They
have quoted para-5.1.38 of the report also which states that the rate of
annual increment would be 3%.
what the Staff-Side has stated has its own merits, the fact of the
matter is that the principle followed here is whenever a stage of pay,
after addition of an increment, falls short of the nearest hundred by
less than 50, the employee would be entitled to get the amount mentioned
in the immediately next cell in the Pay-Matrix. However, when the gap
is that of more than 50, the pay, on addition of an increment, is
rounded off to the nearest hundred which travels backward.
instance, if staying at Rs. 46,100/- one gets an increment @ 3%,
instead of having his/her pay fixed at Rs. 47,483/- (which is the exact
figure), it will be Rs. 47,500/- (thus gaining by Rs. 13/-). Thus it is
not a case of permanent loss as the loss in one year is made good in the
second/third year. Considering this to he a situation of swings and
roundabouts, this may not be treated as a case of anomaly.
Anomaly due to index rationalization
Staff-Side has taken exception to the index rationalization followed by
the 7th CPC while formulating its views as per which the fitment factor
varies and moves upward as one goes up the hierarchical ladder with the
level of responsibility and accountability also steadily climbing up
commensurately. The Staff-Side argues that the multiplication factor
should be one, i.e. 2.81.
Although the Staff-Side has remonstrated that
vertical relativity will suffer distortion in the process, it has to be
stated that it is a policy decision about by the Staff-Side comes to be
distorted when the pay of a feeder-cadre post and that of a promotional
post becomes same. In this case it is not
so. Hence it does not appear to qualify for being called an anomaly.
Minimum Pension
Staff-Side says the minimum pension fixed after 7th CPC should be
corrected and revised orders issued. From the brief explanatory note
recorded under this point, it appears that the CPC had sounded out D/o
pension on what the latter thought what the minimum pension should be.
is an exclusively pension-related issue on which, as informed by the
Staff-Side, D/o Pension was asked for their views by the 7t1 CPC.
Moreover, as will be evident, the basic focus of DoPT’s Q.M. No.
11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017 is on
taking on board those anomalies which are pay-related. Hence, this item
may be taken up separately by the Staff-Side with the D/o Pension. Thus,
instead of treating this as a case of anomaly, the Staff-Side is
requested to take it up with the D/o Pension separately.
Date of effect of allowances HRA, Transport Allowance, CEA etc.
Staff-Side has demanded that the grant of the allowances (revised)
mentioned alongside should be made effective from 01.01.2016 and not
from 01.07.2017.
is a demand and cannot be treated as an anomaly. Moreover, the date
from which a benefit is to be made effective is something which can be
decided only by the Government. Hence, this may not be taken up at the
Anomaly in the grant of D.A instalment w.e.f 01.01.2016.
Here the Staff-Side has questioned the methodology adopted by the Government in computing the DA instalment w.e.f. 01.01.2016.
has, however, to be pointed out that even if there is merit in the
contention of the Staff-Side involving this item, it does not qualify
being called an anomaly when it is examined in the light of the three
situations which, as per DoPT’s Q.M. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th
August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017, would constitute anomalies.
3. Items to be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committees.
Si. No
Implement  the recommendation on Parity in Pay Scale between Sr.  Auditor/Sr. Accountant of IA&AD and organized Accounts with Assistant Section Officer of CSS.
Staff-Side says that although the 5th, 6th and now 7th CPC’s have
recommended that the pay-scales of different cadres/categories/grades
requiring the same recruitment qualifications should be the same, denial
of the same benefit to the Statistical Assistants (SA’s) who are
otherwise at par with Assistant Section Officers (erstwhile ‘Assistant’)
is a violation of the principle. While ASO’s are placed in the
Pay-Matrix of 7, SA’s are in the Pay-Matrix of 6. This arrangement is
stated to have disturbed the horizontal relativity between the
pay-scales of the SA’s in the Organized Accounts and IA&AD Cadre and
ASO’s in the CSS cadre. In conclusion, it has been requested that SA’s
should also be placed in Pay-Matrix no. 7.
if, the present case comes across as one of anomaly, it appears that
the interests of the Statistical Assistants only are involved. ASO’s of
CCS are coming into the question; but only as a reference point, by way
of comparison. Hence the Staff-Side is requested to take up this issue
at the Departmental Anomaly Committee concerned.
Technical Supervisors     of Railways
particular item is exclusively Railways-specific. The Staff-Side, NC
OCM) is requested to take it up at the Departmental Anomaly Committee of
MR) Railways.
Anomaly     in       the assignment  of replacement of Levels of pay in the Ministry of Defence, Railways, Mines etc in the case of Store Keepers     .
says that although ‘Store keeper’ is one such category of posts which
is common to various Departments like Defence, Mines, Railways etc and
in spite of the nature of job, responsibilities being similar, the
pay-scale of storekeepers across all the Departments is not the same. It
is still less in the M/o Defence even after the entry-level
qualifications which were different before the 7th CPC stage, have been
what the Staff-Side remonstrates that even after the requisite changes
had been carried out in the R/Rules, the 7th CPC did not take any
cognizance of it is true, it has to be assumed that it is a policy
decision of the Government. Moreover, the issue appears to be M/o
Defence-specific. The Staff-Side is requested to take it up at the
Departmental Anomaly Committee meeting of the M/o Defence.
4.       Item to be taken up separately with the Department of Pension.
Si. No
Anomaly     arising from the decision to reject option-1 in pension fixation
per the ToR of the NAC, anomalies are basically pay-centric. Under this
point, the contention of the Staff-Side is pension-centric.
Furthermore, the Staff-Side has themselves clarified that post-7th CPC,
Government had set up a CoS headed by Secretary(Pension) to look into
the first option recommended by the 7th CPC. Eventually, this was not
found feasible to be implemented. With such a decision having been taken
at the CoS level, it cannot be called an anomaly. In view of this, we
may inform the Staff-Side to separately take it up with D/0 Pension
without treating it as an anomaly that can be taken up at the NAC.
5.       More details required to examine the following item.
Si. No
Parity in Pay Scales between      Assistants  /Stenographers      in field / subordinate officers and assistant Section Officer and stenographers in CSS.
Although the         heading of this item is          self-explanatory, the relevant text given in the paper sent  is
not complete as the pay-scales of Assistants and stenos posted in field
have not been mentioned therein. Until their pay-scales are known
cannot be compared to check whether there is indeed any anomaly. The
Staff-Side is requested to provide more information that is relevant so
that it can be properly examined to find out whether an anomaly arises
here or not.


 Yours faithfully,
(D.K. Sengupta)
Deputy Secretary to the Government of India

NC/JCM has demanded to convene a meeting of the National Council (JCM)

NC/JCM has demanded to convene a meeting of the National Council (JCM)

National Council (Staff Side)
Joint Consultative Machinery
For Central Government Employees
13-c, Ferozshah Road, New Delhi – 110 001

Shiva Gopal Mishra


Dated: December 16, 2014

The Cabinet Secretary,
(Government of India),
Cabinet Secretariat,
Rashtrapati Bhawan,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Functioning of Joint Consultative Machinery

Since assuming charge of Secretary(Staff Side), National Council(JCM), I have repeatedly demanded to convene a meeting of the National Council(JCM). It is, however, regretful to point out that, despite all out efforts made by me and requesting you in person to hold the meeting, no meeting of the NC/JCM has been convened till date.

It may be appreciated the Joint Consultative Machinery(JCM) at the National level, conceived as an effective Negotiating Forum, has virtually become defunct as no meeting of this forum has been held during the last four years, with the result that, a number of major grievances of the Central Government employees continue to remain unresolved, because of which they are badly agitated.

The procrastinated discussions in the National Anomaly Committee did not proceed to settle any tangible anomaly item. Even after reaching agreement, the government has refused to issue orders on some issues. This apart, the demands raised by the Staff Side for grant of Interim Relief and Merger of DA with Pay have been refused by the government. One of the vital segments of the Central Government Employees, i.e. Grameen Dak Sewaks of the Postal Department, are kept outside the ambit of the 7th CPC. Unilateral decisions were taken to induct FDI in the Railways, Privatize the Railway and Defence Production Units; closure of the Printing Presses, Publication and Stationery Departments; contractorise the medical store functions; corporatize the Postal Organization and outsource various governmental functions.

Under these circumstances, all the constituents of the National Council(JCM)(Staff Side) had to hold a “National Convention” on 11th December, 2014 in New Delhi, wherein after detailed deliberations and taking stock of the situation, a detailed programme of struggle has been chalked-out. In case there is no positive response from the Official Side, it will ultimately lead to indefinite strike.

A copy of the Declaration of the above-mentioned Convention is enclosed herewith, which is self-explanatory.

We do fervently hope that negotiation is possible even at this late stage and would therefore urge upon you to take concrete steps in that direction. We also hope that you will be able to appreciate that any decision of the government which affects the job security of the employees adversely need to be discussed and agreement reached at the JCM Forum.

I would, therefore, request you to personally intervene in the matter, being the Chairman of the National Council(JCM), so as to avoid serious unrest and disturbance to industrial peace in the Central Government Services and hold discussions with the Staff Side, NC/JCM on these vital issues at your earliest.

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
