Reference: This federation’s letter of even No. Dated 06.01.2017

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Anomalies Committee meeting held on 26.12.2016 under the Chairmanship of AS(J) Shri J Rama Krishna Rao wherein we have reflected our concern that the Night Duty Allowance was being paid on the notional basic pay of 4th CPC. Later, based on the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgment NDA is revised in 6th CPC pay scale and extended to all including non-petitioners w.e.f. 01.04.2007. Subsequently, PC of Fys imposed ceiling limit to the employees of Ordnance Factories that Rs.12380/-. OFB has referred the matter to MoD to remove the ceiling but this is not yet settled.
Therefore, you are requested to take necessary action so that the payment of Night Duty Allowance in defence establishments on the revised pay of 07th CPC may be granted without any ceiling.

Thanking you.
Sincerely yours

Struggle Against Defence Privatization - Confederation

Struggle Against Defence Privatization - Confederation

CONFEDERATION EXTENDS FULL SUPPORT AND SOLIDARITY TO THE STRUGGLE OF DEFENCE EMPLOYEES AGAINST PRIVATISATION.

Successive Governments after 1990s have started permitting private sector in the field of Defence production. During May 2001, the Defence Industry sector which was reserved for the Government sector and Public sector was opened to 100% for Indian private sector with 26% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Subsequently the FDI cap in Defence was raised to 49% and now the NDA Govt raised it to 100%.
Government has issued so far 222 licenses to private corporate sector like ADHANI, AMBANI, L&T, ASHOK LEYLAND, BHARAT FORGE, GODREJ &BOYCE, PUNJ LLOYD, PIPAVAV DEFENSE, PREMIER EXPLOSIVES etc,. The present Govt is bent upon to extend all types of support to the Indian private corporate houses and their foreign collaborators. Recently the Prime Minister office asked all the 41 Ordnance Factories, the information about the name of the products manufactured, its photographs, technical description, land holding by each factories, details of plants and machinery, strength of employees etc.,
On 27-04-2017, the Ministry of Defence issued an order with the approval of the Defence Minister Shri Arun Jaitely, to completely outsource 143 defence equipment like Military, Vehicles, Ammunition, Ammunition boxes, Guns, Rifles, Tanks, Troop comfort items etc., which are being manufactured at present by the ordnance factories. This decision of the Govt is going to affect more than 25 Ordnance factories and about 20,000 defence employees will be thrown out of job. Again another order was issued categorizing 39 more items as "non-care" items for outsourcing.

All these decisions are taken to encourage private corporates, making the state-owned Defence Industries sick and redundant and bringing in their place the private corporate sector whose sole intention is to earn more and more profit.

The All India Defence Employees Federation (AIDEF) is on a war path and has already started series of agitations and campaign programmes against the policy decision of the Government to privatise Defence Industry and closure of ordnance factories rendering thousands of defence employees surplus and consequent retrenchment.

As a higher form of agitation AIDEF has commenced indefinite relay hunger fast near Parliament (Jantar Manthar) from 3rd July 2017 onwards. The relay fast was inaugurated by Com. Sharad Yadav, MP. Former Vice President of AIDEF.

The National Secretariat of Confederation of Central Govt Employees and Workers extends full support and solidarity to the struggle of the Defence Employees against privatization.

Cabinet Secretary reviews GST, asks departments to keep a lid on price rise


Cabinet Secretary reviews GST, asks departments to keep a lid on price rise
New Delhi: Three days into GST regime, Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha today asked all ministries and departments to ensure that their is no shortage of goods and prices of essential items are kept under check.
Sinha held a review meeting to take stock of situation post implementation of the new tax regime, and departments have been asked to ensure that retailers, dealers/shopkeepers should display a price list under GST of items sold by them.

“Government has asked all the departments to ensure that their is no shortage of products and consumer items in order to keep a check on prices. Special emphasis was laid on to keep prices of essential commodities under check,” a finance ministry statement said.

Sinha stressed that benefits of GST should be passed on to consumers, which would in turn also keep inflation under control.

“Various machines used by dealers, retailers for computerised billing should be calibrated at the earliest as per the new GST rates,” he added.

A four tier Goods and Services Tax (GST) - 5, 12, 18 and 28 per cent - has been rolled out from July 1. Essential items like salt, unpacked food grains, cereals have been kept a zero rated to ensure that there is no price rise.

Sinha also asked departments to be ready to deal with queries of their stakeholders.

“In order to do so, officers of every ministry should equip themselves and have full knowledge of the details relating to GST concerning their respective Ministry,” he said.

A similar review meeting will be held every week to keep a close watch on GST rollout.

Sinha has also asked all the departments/ministry to provide all the relevant information relating to GST concerning their ministry/department, including GST rates on their respective websites.
He asked the secretaries to get more detailed feedback and in-depth details of the field from their respective stakeholders, officers and consumers at large after GST implementation.

The officers should be fully ready to deal with it so that there is quick response to any situation, the statement said.

Sinha asked them to launch campaigns to make their stakeholders and consumers fully aware about GST related matters concerning their respective ministry/department.

Apart from Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia, the 20 secretaries, including from textile, consumer affairs, food processing, railways, MSME, rural development, tourism, fertiliser, pharma, and financial services attended the meeting. CBEC officials were present in the meeting.

On June 20, Sinha had taken GST preparedness meeting with 30 ministries and departments and had asked the secretaries to organise outreach meetings and publicity campaigns through their departments and PSUs for explaining the provisions of new law and rules to their stakeholders.

The finance ministry had yesterday said that the two days of GST rollout has passed “without any major problems being reported” from the field offices.

“The Revenue Department has got encouraging reports from the roadside dhabas and big restaurants as well as from kirana shops to departmental stores which, in turn, have started getting acclimatised to the new tax system,” it had said.

The biggest indirect tax since Independence, GST removes at least 17 different taxes and transforms India into a single market for seamless movement of goods and services.

7CPC: Implementation of recommendations of the Committee on Allowances


“The date of implementation of the allowances, as announced, w.e.f. 01.07.2017, has created lot of anguish and serious discontentment in the Central Government Employees. We will appreciate if the government considers its implementation w.e.f. 01.01.2016, i.e. date of implementation of VII CPC.”

The Cabinet Secretary,

Dear Sir,
Sub: Implementation of recommendations of the Committee on Allowances
We are quite thankful that after a long wait the Union Cabinet has given its approval for implementation of recommendations of the Committee on Allowances(Ashok Lavasa Committee) as recommended by the VII CPC.

As you are aware that, during the meeting of the Empowered Committee, held under your Chairmanship, we had requested for its early implementation, but unfortunately a long time has been taken by the said committee for finalizing the allowances.

We are thankful to the Government of India for agreeing in principle for House Rent Allowance @ 10%,20% and 30% to the Central Government Employees working in levels 1 to 3, but depriving other staff, particularly Group 'C' staff, which has resulted in lot of discontentment among the Central Government Employees. Staff Side(JCM) is also thankful to the government for reducing 50% Dearness Allowance barrier to 25% for future enhancement of HRA to 09,18 and 27% and restoring 10,20 and 30% on 50% Dearness Allowance, but at the same time would have appreciated if the same formula should have been envisaged for other allowances which are DA indexed.

We are also thankful to the Central Government for revising various allowances, including Breakdown Allowance, Nursing Allowance, Trip Allowance, Additional Allowance, Cycle Allowance, Cash Handling Allowance etc. as also Special Allowance to Trackmen, Section Controllers and Loco Pilot (Goods) and Sr. Passenger Guards and extending Patient Care Allowance to Ministerial Staff working in the hospitals. We also appreciate the government for enhancing the rate of Fixed Medical Allowance from Rs.500 p.m. to Rs.1000 p.m. for the Pensioners. Though it is meager to old-aged pensioners, healthcare and at least Rs.2500 should have been granted.

The date of implementation of the allowances, as announced, w.e.f. 01.07.2017, has created lot of anguish and serious discontentment in the Central Government Employees. We will appreciate if the government considers its implementation w.e.f. 01.01.2016, i.e. date of implementation of VII CPC.
Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula was one of the major demands in our Strike Notice, for which government formed a committee, unfortunately, up-till now nothing substantial has been done in this regard. Staff Side(JCM), therefore, requests that, a meeting should be called and the matter be resolved at an earliest.

The government has also constituted a Committee on National Pension System(NPS) and it was assured to us that, decision in the matter would be taken within four months. Unfortunately, up-till now, this issue remains unresolved. We earnestly hope that, the government will definitely consider the demand of the Staff Side - Guaranteed Minimum Pension for new Pensioners (appointed on or after 01.01.2004) as well as Family Pension at par with Old Pensioners/Family Pensioners.

We always believe in best industrial relations, but to keep industrial peace, we hope, the government will take appropriate steps to resolve the long pending demands of the Central Government Employees at an
earliest.
Comradely yours,

Expected DA July 2017 for CG Employees and Pensioners


Expected DA July 2017 for CG Employees and Pensioners

Dearness Allowance is not an attractive word among CG Employees and Pensioners nowadays, because, the hike of DA and DR is around 1 or 2 Percent only. Particularly after 7th Pay Commission, the All India Consumer Price Index is on down trend. So, employees could not expect more like 6th Pay Commission regime. Before 2016, all CG Employees and Pensioners got higher of 10% of their basic pay or basic pension as DA or DR.

At present, we have 5 months AICPIN data from Jan to May 2017 and need one more month of June 2017 to calculate the exact percentage of DA and DR with effect from July 2017.

However, there will be no chance to increase the percentage of DA and DR from One Percent. So, the total DA and DR will become only 5% from July to Dec 2017.
The below table will describe a lot…

1 = Month/Year
2 = AICPIN
3 = Total of 12 Months
4 = 12 Monthly Average
5 = DA % with Decimal
6 = DA %
