Sub: Grant of Financial upgradation in the promotion hierarchy instead of grade pay hierarchy under the
        MACP.

Sir,

It is my humble submission that I joined as LDC in the Government of India, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, NSSO (FOD), Bhopal in 1989. In spite of the fact that an LDC qualifies for promotion to the post of UDC after completion of 8 years service, I could get promotion to the post of UDC only after 15 years due to heavy stagnation. The Assured Career Progression Scheme introduced by the Government in the year 1998, only partially met the monetary part as I was granted 1st financial upgradation under ACPS to the scale 4000-6000. As a result of implementation of MACPS w.e.f. 1.9.2008, I could get the next financial upgradation with Grade Pay of Rs. 2800 only. However, had the previous Assured Career Progression Scheme been continued, I could have been the beneficiary of 2nd financial upgradation with the Grade Pay of Rs. 4200 on completion of 24 years. At present, I have been entrusted/allotted with the duties which are normally handled by an Assistant or an official at a still higher cadre. Even though, I have not been promoted to the next higher post, the duties and responsibilities assigned to that higher post are being allocated to me on a regular and continuous basis. Thus, the denial Financial Upgradation in the promotional hierarchy to me for the reason that I have not been promoted to the higher post is not justified.

It is therefore requested that the financial upgradation under MACPS may be granted to me on the promotional hierarchy instead of grade pay hierarchy. Otherwise I may be allowed the option to choose ACPS or MACPS whichever is beneficial to me.

I request your early favorable action on the subject please.

Yours faithfully

Sir,

It is my humble submission that I joined as LDC in the Government of India, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, NSSO (FOD), Bhopal in October 1999. In spite of the fact that an LDC qualifies for promotion to the post of UDC after completion of 8 years service, I could not get promotion as UDC till date due to heavy stagnation. Meanwhile I was granted first financial upgradation with hierarchical grade pay of Rs. 2000 under Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme introduced by the Government w.e.f. 1.9.2008 which results in a meager monetary benefit of Rs. 100 only. However, had the previous Assured Career Progression Scheme been continued, I could have been the beneficiary of 1st financial upgradation with the Grade Pay of Rs. 2400 on completion of 12 years.

At present, I have been entrusted/allotted with the duties which are normally handled by a UDC or an official at a still higher cadre. Even though, I have not been promoted to the next higher post, the duties and responsibilities assigned to that higher post are being allocated to me on a regular and continuous basis. Moreover I am doing work in computer which is normally handled by an EDP in Government of India Offices where the EDP has been placed in a higher grade pay whereas I get the benefit of Rs. 100/- only for my hard work for more than 10 years. In the light of the above, the denial Financial Upgradation in the promotion hierarchy to me for the reason that I have not been promoted to the higher post is not justified.

In order to remove this anomalous situation, it is my fervent appeal to you to issue necessary instructions to grant grade pay of the promotional post in the hierarchy instead of grade pay hierarchy. Otherwise I may be allowed the option to choose ACPS or MACPS whichever is beneficial to me.

I request you an early favorable action on the subject please.

Yours faithfully

Sir,

It is my humble submission that I joined as Steno Grade III in the Government of India, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, NSSO (FOD), Bhopal in 1999. In spite of the fact that an Steno Grade III qualifies for promotion to the post of Steno Grade II after completion of 8 years service, could not get promotion as Steno Grade II till date due to heavy stagnation.

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

Hall No. 201 & 205, Vijay Stumbh,
Zone I, Maharana Pratap Nagar,

No. 2/Assn/GS/2011                                                                                         Bhopal, dated 12/11/2011

To

The Additional Director General,
NSSO (FOD),
New Delhi

Sub: Filling up of the vacant posts of LDC by educationally qualified MTS.

Sir,

It is to inform you that the General Body meeting of this Association held at Mumbai on 15-16 September 2011 discussed and decided an item demanding filling up of the vacant posts of LDC in the FOD Offices by promotion of educationally qualified MTS. The meeting observed that in several of the Offices of the FOD educationally qualified MTS have been engaged in the administrative work against the vacant post of LDC. In the Sub Regional Offices of FOD MTS do the entire work related to administration. Majority of these MTS have got proficiency in computer operations as well.

It is to be noted that qualified MTS who are declared surplus and who do not have even meager average knowledge of administrative work are sponsored against regular vacancy of LDC in Central Government Offices. Whereas the educationally qualified MTS of the FOD offices are already working in the administrative section and knows the routine administrative matters as well. It is therefore requested that educationally qualified MTS may be promoted against the vacancies of LDC as a onetime measure.

An early action on the matter is requested please.


Yours faithfully

Promotion of UDC to the post of Assistant on 18 years Combined Seniority of LDC & UDC.

The Additional Director General,

New Delhi

Sub: Promotion of UDC to the post of Assistant on 18 years Combined Seniority of LDC & UDC.

Sir,

This is in continuation of this Association letter of even number dated 12/07/2010 wherein it was requested to consider promotion to the post of Assistant on the combined seniority of LDC & UDC. But we have not received any information on the progress of the action taken so far and such the matter was discussed in the General Body Meeting of the Association, held at Mumbai on 15-16 September 2011.

While discussing the matter the delegates pointed out that as per DoPT manual LDCs have to do the work of dispatch/diary, copying, typing and other minor administrative work only. Whereas in NSSO offices especially the Regional Offices of FOD major subjects, viz. Establishment, Accounts, Store, TA/Medical, Budget, MPER, Reconciliation, NPS Pension maintenance, Pension cases, Pay Fixation etc. are rotated among LDCs and UDCs through periodical work allocation. Moreover, on an average it takes 15-16 years for an LDC to get promotion to the post of UDC in NSSO Offices especially in FOD Regions whereas DoPT provides only 8 years of qualifying service for promotion to the post of UDC. Thus considering the time period taken and also the quality work/section allocated to the LDCs from the date of their joining as LDC in the FOD Offices, it is requested that promotion to the post of Assistant may be made on combined service put in the post of the LDC & UDC together and amendments in the recruitment rule of the Assistant may be made accordingly.

Till the amendment of recruitment rule is finalized all vacancies of the Assistant may be filled by the UDCs on ad-hoc basis.

An early action on the matter is requested please.

Yours faithfully

REVISION OF PPO OF PRE-1996 FAMILY PENSIONERS


No.1/20/2011 -P&PW(E)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension
Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare
Lok Nayak Bhavan, Khan Market,
New Delhi, the 1st November, 2011.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: - Revision of PPOs of pre—2006 family pensioners — regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to Secretary (Pension)'s d.o. letter No.42/68/2009-P&PW(G), dated the 25th May, 2011 and 8th June, 2011 concerning revision of Pension Payment Orders (PPOs) in respect of pre-2006 Pensioners consequent to implementation of 6th CPC recommendations.

2. It is heartening to learn from replied received the Ministries/ Departments that they are responsive to the needs of Pensioners/Family Pensioners. In the mean while, Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) has issued an advertisement, which has been published in the Newspapers on 3rd September, 2011, requesting pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners to provide prescribed information to the Head of the Department/Office concerned for issue of revised PPOs. In another advertisement published on 15th and l6th September, CPAO has circulated its toll-free telephone number 1800-11-77-88 for registration of grievances. Therefore, all the Ministries/ Departments are requested to seize the opportunity and revise the pre-2006 PPOs at the earliest possible.

3. It has come to the notice of this Department that the family pensioners are a sufferer's lot as the Banks have not revised the family pension in most of the cases and it is being paid either at the pre-revised rates or at the minimum rate of Rs.3500/- per month. Therefore, all Ministries/Departments and PAOs are requested to take up the matter of revision of family pension as first priority.

“OCCUPY WALL STREET”

“Occupy Wall Street” has become now a very important slogan of American working class. For the last few weeks workers are being assembled at Wall Street New York (America) and protesting the globalization policies which have caused tremendous unemployment, soaring inflation mainly in the food items and rampant corruption. Wall Street is the place where office of world’s No. 1 Stock Market New York Stock Exchange is situated. Besides this there are offices of World’s most important Banks and financial Corporations and Multinational Companies. This is the perception of American general public that this is the place of greed, gambling, cheating and euphemism of profit making and exploitation of working class and general people through which the economic policies of America are decided and US Government dances on its finger tip. The palpable anger of the people against the deprivations imposed upon them since the financial meltdown of the “Big Five” (Multinational giant financial corporations) on Wall Street in New York in 2008 have now reached on unprecedented level of unemployment and declining livelihood standards. The rallying point was focus against corporate greed and loot as the genesis of their travails is like the severe pain to a woman at the time of giving birth to a child. This anti Wall Street protests against globalization policies has spread over 1500 cities word over. This is the self generated agitation among the people who are badly affected by this capitalist system. The myth that the state under capitalism is a benign natural entity has been shattered. True to its character, the capitalist state intervened to bail out these very financial giants who in the first place caused the current crisis.

To show their disbelief in banking system, hundreds of people have withdrawn their money and closed the accounts as a symbolic protest.

This type of protest has spread in the cities like London, Rome, Athens and other cities of Europe and Asia. Now this trend of profit making by giant financial corporate sector has become a symbol of hate.

This self generated agitation of U.S. people can be compared with anti corruption movement of Anna Hazare in our country, India. As the people of India think that the wide spread corruption in all walks of life is the root cause of miserable condition of working class and general public in India (even though there are other burning issues like price rise, unemployment etc also as a fall out of capitalist globalization policies). The anti Wall Street protesters rightly believe that main reason of all evils of economic system exists in capitalist system operated from Wall Street.

Now the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ agitation has become international. The policy makers in every country should think very seriously to put check on this financial, banking and share market oriented globalization policies and try to search alternative path for the welfare of working class and people of not only in USA and Europe but for whole World where a common man can earn his livelihood and can live his life peacefully getting rid of miserable condition fulfilling the minimum requirements of life.

As the living legend of socialist world Comrade Fidel Castro of Cuba has correctly put it “there is an alternative and socialism is the only alternative”. Let us hope for a new world order.
