அஞ்சல் சேமிப்பை ஊக்குவித்தால் கிராமப்புறம் வளரும் என்ற கொள்கையில் நம்பிக்கையில்லையா ?

Request to supply the copy of Memorandum

   No.PF-PJCA/2016                                                                Dated: 15th March, 2016
            Ms. Kavery Banerjee,
            Department of Posts,
            Dak Bhawan,
            New Delhi-110 001
Sub:   Submission of Memorandum on 7th CPC related issues to the     Implementation Cell by the Department of Post: Request to supply the   copy.
            Your kind attention is invited towards both Federation letters dated 07.03.2016 on the subject cited above. In this connection , we would like to bring  to your kind notice  that a JCM Departmental Council  Meeting  was held on 08.12.2015 under  your Chairmanship in which  the issues related  to Pay Commission  were discussed in detail  and it was  decided  that a copy of Memorandum to be submitted  to Implementation Cell  will be  given to Federations, but inspite of  several requests verbal  and in writing  made to you and  Member(Personal), the copy of the same  has not been supplied yet.
            Again it has been informed vide Director, SR & Legal  letter No. 06-04/2015-SR dated 09th March, 2016  that one meeting  will be  held  on 31.03.2016 under your Chairmanship at Directorate on the same  pay Commission  related issues and prior  to it  one meeting will also be held on 28th March 2016 with Director (SR).
            We are very sorry to inform you that in such circumstances we shall not be able to attend the meeting as scheduled. When any decision  is  taken in highest forum and assurances are given  and  if the same is not materialized  and subordinate officers  do not comply with the orders of highest officers  than what’s  the use of holding such meetings again and again. This is merely wastage of time.
            Further we would like  to mention  here that  at the time of submission of Memorandum to Pay Commission  we had requested  several times to supply  the copy of the same  but it was not supplied  but it has been obtained by some retired officials under R.T.I.
            Therefore it is beyond to understand as to what is there which is to be concealed from the unions.
            Even now we have time. Therefore PJCA requests to kindly supply the copy of memorandum submitted to implementation cell and Pay Commission, so that the matter can be discussed in the meeting.
            It is therefore, requested to kindly take necessary action in this regard.
                        With regards.

The official side pointed out the decisions of the Court in favour of the position taken by the Government in the case of K.S. Krishnaswany in CANO. 3174/3006, which has been upheld by the Honourable Gujarat High Court. In reply the Staff Side pointed out that the said decisions quoted by the official side had come about due to the phrase employed while issuing the original order viz. corresponding replacement scale.

Railway, Central staff seek better deal

A massive lunch-hour demonstration before the Rail Nilayam here on Friday saw over 2,000 employees of the South Central Railway and other Central Government organisations coming together to showcase their demands that include among others, opposition to privatisation moves, better pay and working conditions. Following a call from the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), similar demonstrations were organised across the country before Zonal offices to show their strength, said NJCA chairman and general secretary of the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen, M. Raghavaiah, while addressing the gathering. He said an estimated 42 lakh Central Government employees would go on an indefinite strike from July 11, notice for which would be served on June 9. The demands include minimum pay of Rs. 26,000 as against the Rs. 18,000 offered. The minimum pay, employees alleged, was fixed taking into consideration the average price of Labour Bureau, instead of actual prices in the market. For example, the employees were told that cost of rice was taken as Rs. 24 a kilo, while the price for a metre of cloth for the family was taken as Rs. 141. Others who addressed the gathering include chairman and general secretary of the Joint Council of Action, G. Prabhakar Andrew and Ch. Sankara Rao, respectively.

Govt has the "absolute right" to fire, if necessary in the public interest, employee who joined service before the age of 35 and has crossed the age of 50 or 55

New Delhi: Employees of autonomous institutions like central universities and AIIMS will come under government scanner now which will keep track of their performance.

Under Fundamental Rule 56(J), the government has the "absolute right" to retire, if necessary in the public interest, any Group A and B employee who joined service before the age of 35 and has crossed the age of 50.

Also, a Group C government servant, who has crossed the age of 55, can be retired prematurely under the rule.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) today asked all administrative ministries to ensure that autonomous institutions have adopted the provisions of FR 56 (j) and that they are strictly followed.

In case where the autonomous institutions have similar provisions in their rule books, the administrative ministry may ensure that they are followed in letter and spirit, it said.

In case there is no such provisions exist in regulations governing their working, the administrative ministry may ensure that the action is taken to put in place such rules as may be necessary, the DoPT said in a communique to all central government secretaries.

There number of autonomous institutions and bodies under the administrative control of central government that include Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), as per a government directory.
