National Joint Council of Action

No.NJC/2015/7th CPC

December 10, 2015

    To
    Shri. Pradip Kumar Sinha
    Cabinet Secretary
    Government of India
    Rashtrapati Bhawan Annexe
    New Delhi-110001.

    Sir,

    Subject:- 7th CPC recommendations and Charter of Demands – Reg.

We send herewith our suggestions and demands on the recommendation made by the 7th CPC. As indicated when the undersigned met you on 20th November 2015 the central government employees are extremely agitated over the totally retrograde recommendations of the Commission.

The meagre increase of 14% recommended by the 7th CPC is the lowest ever any pay Commission has made. It was the similar recommendation, we would request you to recall, made by the 2nd CPC that triggered a confrontation of an unprecedented nature, leading to a strike action which lasted for five days in the year 1960. In the background of the fact that the 5th and 6th CPC recommendations had resulted in the wage rise of 31% and 54% respectively, the anger, anguish and frustration of the employees are the natural outcome. Unless the minimum wage is re-determined with all consequential benefits, the discontent will not be capable of being addressed effectively.

It is, therefore, necessary that a meeting of the members of the Standing Committee of JCM NC is convened under your chairmanship immediately to discuss the issues we have incorporated in the enclosed charter. Settlement through bilateral negotiation has become the urgent need and requirement.

I have been directed by the meeting of the NJCA held on 8th December 2015 to convey to you the disappointment and resentment of the employees over the recommendations of the 7th CPC. We expect a bilateral negotiated settlement of the issues without delay from the Government. We request you that a mutually agreeable settlement on the issues are brought about latest by the first week of February 2016. I have been asked by the meeting to inform you that the entire Central Govt Employees under the auspices of National JCA will be constrained to go indefinite strike in the first week of March 2016 if the desired settlement through bilateral discussions is not brought about by the first week of February 2016. To facilitate an early resolution of the issues, we expect the government to set up a Committee of Group of Ministers to negotiate with the NJCA immediately.

We earnestly hope that the Government will effectively intervene and bring about a satisfactory settlement much before the first week of February 2016 and avoid an otherwise inevitable confrontation.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

From above it may be deduced that more than 7 lakh sanctioned posts are lying vacant for a long period which is not only adversely affecting the efficiency of good governance but give ample opportunity for exploitation of contract worker employed in the Government sector. Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh has been demanding for abolition of contract work system and regularization of the contract workers.

Now, our  Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri  Narendra  Modi  has also  assured  the unemployed youth to give them proper employment.

Hence,  it  is  requested  to  your  good  self  to  intervene  into the  matter  and  issue necessary directives to all the Ministries of Govt of India to fill up the vacant posts without further delay.
Thanking you.
Sincerely yours
SADHU SINGH

7th Pay Commission Report on Leave Encashment of EL

7th Pay Commission Report on Leave Encashment of EL

Enhancement of ceiling of Earned Leave for purposes of Leave Encashment

The Commission has received representations seeking raising the ceiling limit of 300 days to 450 days for purposes of Leave encashment.

7th Pay Commission Report on Leave Encashment of EL


Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission notes that based on the recommendations of the VI CPC, serving employees are entitled for encashment of Earned Leave up to 60 days while in service. This is not to be deducted from the maximum number of Earned Leave of 300 days encashable at the time of retirement. The VI CPC, therefore, has further liberalised the regime of leave encashment.

The recommendations in relation to pay of both the civilian and defence forces personnel will also lead to a significant increase in the pay drawn and therefore in the total amount of leave encashment available for an employee.

Therefore raising the present ceiling of 300 days is not recommended by the Commission.
