Subject: Agitational Programme to be held from 22.08.2016 to 27.08.2016.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is hoped that all of you are well and busy in accelerating trade union activities. As all of you know that the notification and the revised pay rules related to 7th CPC have been promulgated by the Government without any change as it was recommended by 7th CPC. Neither Pay Commission nor the Government paid any heed to our demands and thereby we are constrained to take some agitational steps.
In this regard, a mass rally has been scheduled at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on 29.08.2016 to protest anti-employee attitude of the Government and to constrain the Government for paying heed to our genuine demands. It is worth to mention here that prior to Cabinet Meeting on 7th CPC held on 29 June, 2016; NJCA had announced an indefinite strike to be commenced from 11 July, 2016. But it bowed before the pressure exerted by the Government and cancelled the strike when grief, sorrow and discontentment of the employees were on its culmination erupted by anti-employee attitude of the Government. The postponement of the strike by NJCA has jolted the trade union movement and put a question mark on the worthy of existence of the unions.

There is a need to prepare ourselves and make aware others with respect to our demands, continuous struggles and humongous Delhi rally. To fulfill the above purpose a one week start up programme from 22.08.2016 to 27.08.2016 has been scheduled to protest anti-employee and antiprogressive attitude of the Government. In the programme, Gate meetings, Slogan Shouthing, Demonstration at main gate etc will be conducted as per feasibility. On the last day of the Programme viz 27.08.2016 a memorandum addressed to Hon’able Prime Minister has to be submitted

through Hon’able Member of Parliament of your constituency.

Your support for the said programme is solicited.

Brotherly yours
General Secretary

Hon’ble Member of Parliament,

Subject : Discontentment amongst the Government Employees against Central Government’s Cabinet Decision on the 7th CPC recommendations.
Hon’ble Sir,
1. The disappointment and discontentment prevailing amongst the Central Government employees, their families and their colleagues of all the State Governments, who were waiting eagerly from the Central Government Cabinet to overturn the some of the excruciating recommendations of 7th CPC have compelled us to draw your kind attention towards it.

2. The Cabinet’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC has jolted to the faith of employees who believe in the assurances given in the format & informal meetings between the Ministers of Union Government and trade union/federations including affiliated to Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh.

3. It is regretted to submit that the annoyance of all the lowest rung employees has reached in a manner wherein they are flaying the Central Government for not taking note of their hope of enhancing the minimum pay from Rs 18000/- and multiplying factor from 2.57, rate of interest from 3% to 5% and non-merging any of the Grade Pay of PB-1 & PB-2. Also neither New Pension Scheme has been scrapped nor the Government assured for minimum guaranteed pension for the recruits on or after 01.01.2004 nor the arrears of enhanced Bonus have yet been paid despite passing of reasonable time in accepting the amendment to the Bonus Act.

4. It is worth to mention that while considering the recommendations of 7th CPC, the assurances of the responsible Union Ministers after lengthy deliberations with the reps of this Federation have been totally ignored which resultant the awkward position of the Federation too. It is well known fact that the Union Government’s decision shall not affect the Central employees only but shall affect the State employees too since by now and large, the identical report is to be implemented by them also.

5. Being the only hope from your kind goodself, we look forward for interfering into the matter in order of avoiding of becoming the image of anti-workers of the Government both at the level of Central as well State employees.

With deep regards.
Sincerely yours
General Secretary

Sub: Setting up of a high level committee to review the Minimum Wage Multiplication Factor.
Ref: Our letter of even No. dated 26.7.2016.

Dear Sir,
We solicit your kind reference to the discussion, the representatives of NJCA had with you in the presence of the Honourable Home Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh and the Railway Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhu and the MOS (R) Shri Manoj Sinha on 30th June, 2016.

We were expecting a quick action on the part of the Government to operationalise the assurance of setting up a high level Committee to go into the Minimum wage, Multiplication factor etc. However, we are disappointed that even after a lapse of more than a month no order has been issued by the Government in this regard. The employees, as you are aware, were angry over the arbitrary determination of the minimum wage by the 7th CPC by mutilating the Dr. Aykhroyd formula and also the propornate multiplication factor.
We, therefore, appeal to you that the concerned authorities may be asked to expedite the issuance of orders setting up the committee and finalization of the Report within the available time of remaining three months.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

New Delhi: 7th Pay Commission allowances for all central government employees under the new pay matrix will be paid ahead of festive season of Dussehra, a top Finance Ministry’s official told.

According to Union Cabinet decision, a Committee headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa and Secretaries of Home Affairs, Defence, Health and Family Welfare among others as its members was constituted on July 22 for examination of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on allowances other than dearness allowance.

The Union Cabinet took this decision on June 29, when they approved 7th Pay Commission proposal.
“The new pay matrix is implemented as per a decision of the cabinet in light of notification and resolution for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations was issued by the Finance Ministry on July 25,” he said in reply to a question from our reporter.

The pay fixation and arrears related Office Memorandum No.1-5/2016-IC and Corrigendum dated July 29 and dated August 1 respectively were issued, he added.

The hike in the salary component as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission was accepted by the cabinet with retrospective effect from January 1, 2016. The government decided to pay its 48 lakh employees and 52 lakh pensioners’ arrears arising from implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in one go in this month salaries and pensions.

The Finance Secretary committee was asked to submit its report within four months. Accordingly, a decision on increased allowances is to be come in November, but government decided to pay it with bonus ahead of festive season of Dussehra and the committee is bound to follow the government instruction.” official confirmed us.

So, the brightest diyas of coming Diwali will be lit outside houses of central government employees.
The pay commission headed by Justice A K Mathur had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others after examining 196 allowances.

“These measures are radical in nature, even the employees’ unions have given their suggestions in the matter and therefore the committee has been formed to look into it. Whatever the committee decides, it will go to the Cabinet,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

This is noted that the first meeting of the committee already took place on August 4.

Centre Enhances disability Pension to those who Retired before 2006 – As per the order, the provision linking the service element of the disability pension of departments has been deleted.

The Union Government has announced an enhanced disability pension for pre-2006 pensioners. Now, they will be treated at par with pensioners who retired after 2006.

An order by the Department of Pensions said here on Friday that the revised consolidated pension of pre-2006 pensioners shall not be lower than 50 per cent of the minimum pay in the pay band and grade pay (wherever applicable), corresponding to the ‘pre-revised pay scale as per the fitment table without pro-rata reduction of pension’, even if they had qualifying service of less than 33 years at the time of retirement.
It said the provision would be equally applicable for computing the service element of the revised disability pension being drawn by the pre-2006 disability pensioners.

As per the order, the provision linking the service element of the disability pension of departments has been deleted. The arrears of revised disability pensions would be payable with effect from January 1, 2006.
It directed all Ministries/Departments to implement the orders revising the pension of all those pre-2006 disability pensioners who had rendered less than 33 years of qualifying service at the time of retirement as top priority.
