REPRESENTATION REQUESTING RELAXATION OF QUALIFICATION FOR SCF PROMOTIONS FROM LDC TO JA CADRE

Comrades,
This issue has been discussed with the DDG(PAF) and he assured to act positively on the representations received in this regard. In my last Circular I have given full details. I am publishing the representation received from Trivandrum. I request you all to use this as a model and draft the representations from the concerned LDCs who have passed 10th Class but could not be promoted due to enhancing the qualification for promotion under SCF to Junior Accountant Cadre through an amendment to the Recruitment Rules.  Representation may please be submitted to the DA(P) for forwarding the same to DDG (PAF), New Delhi. A copy may please be sent to CHQ. All the Circle Secretaries are requested to act promptly on this issue.
With Greetings

PERIODICAL MEETING ON 29-11-12 WITH SECRETARY POSTS - AGENDA ITEMS SUBMITTED BY AIPAEA FOR DISCUSSION



                                 AGENDA ITEMS FOR PERIODICAL MEETING
1.      Recruitment in Postal Accounts Offices: For the past two years this Association is bringing this aspect to the notice of the authorities. It is assured to make recruitment in PAOs on priority basis. Yet, there is no significant improvement in the situation. The PAOs are working under severe shortage of Staff. There is a need to review the situation urgently and take up the remedial measures. It is requested to cause orders to fill up all the vacancies through local recruitment/absorption from other departments etc. as a onetime measure in a time bound manner.
2.      Implement the Hon. Principal CAT, Delhi order in OA 1066/2011 filed by AIPAEA. This Association has filed a case in the Hon.Pr.CAT, Delhi  seeking a direction to give the benefit of 2nd financial up-gradation under ACP ignoring the promotions due to  up-gradation of Junior Accountant posts to Senior Accountant.  Earlier the O.A. 955/2010 by this Association in the similar matter has been remitted to the authority for considering the representation of the AIPAEA. The representation was submitted to DDG(PAF) and the same was rejected vide the order dated 28-12-2010. This is challenged and the Hon. Pr.CAT quashed the memo dated 28-12-2010 and remitted back to the respondents for taking a fresh decision in this regard. It is requested to honour the spirit of the judgment in OA 1066/2011 and implement the same by giving the benefit of 2nd financial up-gradation ignoring the promotion from Junior Accountant to Senior Accountant cadre.
3.      Financial up-gradation (ACP) as per the existing hierarchy in the Postal Accounts to the officials appointed through surplus cell. It has come to the notice of this Association that a few LDCs from the erstwhile National Saving Organization allotted by the surplus cell to the Postal Accounts organization as LDC, has been deprived of financial up gradation (ACP) as per the existing hierarchy in the Postal Accounts. These cases may kindly be reviewed and favourable orders issued.

CONFEDERATION WRITES TO SECRETARY PERSONNEL
ON REVIVAL OF JCM FUNCTIONING



D/16/2012 Dated: 10th November, 2012.

To

The Secretary (Personnel)
Department of Personnel and Training,
Government of India
North Block,
New Delhi. 110 001

Dear Sir,

                                                Sub: Revival of the JCM functioning- Departmental level-
                                                Regarding:

                We solicit your kind reference to the discussions at the National Anomaly Committee meeting held on 17th July, 2012 when the leader and Secretary Staff Side  and other members of the Staff Side brought to your kind notice that the JCM at the Departmental Council level in most of the Ministries other than Railways and Defence have become defunct.  The Staff Side also informed you that the recognition of Service Association, despite the submission of the requisite applications and adherence to conditions stipulated under the CCS(RSA) Rules, 1003 are denied by the heads of departments for no legitimate reasons.  The attitude of the Official Side in this regard has resulted in the virtual shutting out any discussion on issues of concern to employees in various Ministries.     You had been good enough to assure us that concrete steps would be taken to revive the functioning of JCM at all levels and in all Ministries.

                We are to bring to you kind notice that the status quo as obtained at the time of the said National Anomaly Committee meeting is in existence even today without any improvement.  We shall be grateful if you could kindly direct the concerned to take steps so that the functioning of the councils could be revived without further loss of time.

                Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

 CONFEDERATION WRITES TO SECRETARY PERSONNEL ON FIXATION OF PAY ON PROMOTION

D/16/2012                                                                                                       Dated: 10th November, 2012.

To

The Secretary (Personnel)
Department of Personnel and Training,
Government of India
North Block,
New Delhi. 110 001

Dear Sir,
                                                                Sub: Fixation of pay on promotion:


                It was agreed in the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012 that wherever there is a provision of direct recruitment in the Recruitment Rules, pay on promotion would be fixed at the prescribed minimum of the entry pay as provided for the direct entrants in the revised pay rules.   However a formal order in implementation of this order is yet to be issued. 

                We shall be grateful if necessary directions are issued for the issuance of formal orders in the matter.
                Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

K.K.N. Kutty
Secretary General.


























CONFEDERATION WRITES TO SECRETARY DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE ON
FIXATION OF PAY ON PROMOTION CARRYING SAME GRADE PAY

D/16/2012 Dated: 10th November, 2012.

To

The Secretary,
Department of Expenditure,
Ministry of Finance,
Government of India, North Block
New Delhi. 110 001

Dear Sir,
                                                Sub:       Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying the same
                                                                Grade pay.

                It was agreed in the last National Anomaly Committee meeting held on 17th July, 2012( as could be seen from the minutes issued in this regard) that in cases where promotion to a post carrying the same grade pay, benefit of one increment would be considered subject to the condition that the promotional post carries higher duties and responsibilities under FR 22 and fixation benefit under FR 22 (1)(a)(i) was available prior to the implementation of the 6th CPC report and the merger of the two grades was not on functional considerations.  However, in implementation of this agreement, no formal orders were issued so far. 

                We, therefore, request that necessary instruction may kindly be caused to be issued to grant one increment benefit to all those employees who are promoted where the feeder cadre and the promotion cadre carry the same grade pay, provided the promotional grade is declared to be a post carrying higher responsibilities.  All those who were promoted during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of issue of the instruction may also be covered by the said instruction specifically.

                Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,


K.K.N. Kutty
Secretary General.







CONFEDERATION PRESIDENT WRITES TO
STAFF SIDE SECRETARY

S.K. VYAS
PRESIDENT;
Dated: 10th November, 2012.
Com. Umraomal Purohit,
Secretary, Staff Side, National Council, JCM\
13-C Ferozeshah Road,
New Delhi 110 001

Dear Comrade,

Kindly recall the discussions, I had with you two days back about the meeting held under the Chairmanship of JS(E) 27th July, 2012 on MACP issues.  As intimated to you, the minutes of the said meeting was prepared and circulated by the official side without causing any discussion with the Staff Side, which had been the practice all along with the result there had been serious omissions in the conclusions indicated therein.  However, on the basis of our discussions, we suggest the following proposals:

(a)    On our demand for giving effect to the MACP scheme from 1.1.2006.
Our suggestion at the meeting was that if not for the entire personnel, the Govt. may consider to grant the benefit of MACP scheme to  the personnel retired between 1.1.2006 and 31.8.2008 effective from. 1.1.2006.  This suggestion was made with a view that the personnel who were in service after 1.9.2008, no doubt get the MACP benefit, though belatedly.  Only those who retired between the above crucial dates are denied the said benefit for ever.   In my opinion, we may even go further and suggest that even in the case of those retired, the benefit may be made only notional, in as much as they may not be entitled to receive arrears of salary due to the revision of pay.  They become entitled only the increased pension benefit and that too with effect from. 1.9. 2008.

(b)   MACP on promotional hierarchy:
There had been no logical arguments placed by the official side for denying the option to be exercised by the individual employee as to whether he would like to retain the existing scheme of ACP or switch over to MACP.  In the light of strong contention made by the Staff Side, it was in fact agreed that the official side will consider this proposal which was made by the Staff Side in fact as an alternative to the demand for masking MACP on the basis of promotional hierarchy in replacement of Grade Pay hierarchy. As large number of employees would be affected adversely if this just demand is denied, we feel that this issue must be pressed for acceptance.

We request you to kindly take up the above two formulations at the appropriate level as you deem fit and bring about a settlement at an early date.
With greetings,
Yours fraternally,

sd.
S.K.Vyas.
President.
