Foreign Tour for Central Government Employees – Demanded by NC JCM Staff Side

Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
Leave Travel Concession
Leave Travel Concession is a facility extended to the Government employees, which enables scheme to avail holidays and undertack travel as a tourist with his family.
The facility provides him with an opportunity to be away from the monotonous daily routine and be with his family without the botherisation of the official duties. It is an established fact that if employer is encouraged to take such holidays they will reform rejuvenated and the employer is benefitted through his increased productivity.

Over the years, on representation from employees, the concession has been widened. However, some aspects of this facilities require certain further relaxations/improvements. We enumerate those as under:-
1. Permission for air journey for all categories of employees to and from NE Region.
2. Permission for personnel posted in NE Region for a journey within NE Region.
3. To increase the periodicity of the LTC once in two years.
4. Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
We request the 7th CPC to consider recommending our suggestion for improvements to the Government.

Suggestion on Dearness Allowance for 7th Pay Commission – NC JCM STAFF SIDE

Suggestion on Dearness Allowance for 7th Pay Commission – NC JCM STAFF SIDE
National Council JCM Staff Side suggested on the issue of Dearness Allowance in 7th Pay Commission, the existing formula of computation of Dearness allowance and its payment with effect from 1st January, and 1st July may continue…
Dearness allowance

The neutralisation envisaged under the present system of computation of dearness compensation is supposed to be cent per cent, but in reality it is not the case. Actual consumer price index is much higher than the level at which DA is calculated on the basis of 12 monthly average. The average is always lower than the actual cost of living.

The calculation of consumer price index, its basis, the basket of goods on which it is based, are questionable and has become a matter of dispute. Since the Pay Commission being not the forum at which these issues could be taken, we do not propose to go into the details of this aspects.

We suggest, therefore, that the existing formula of computation of DA and its payment with effect from 1st January, and 1st July, may continue.
