c) To work out the framework for an emoluments structure linked with the need to attract the most suitable talent to Government service, promote efficiency, accountability and responsibility in the work culture, and foster excellence in the public governance system to respond to complex challenges of modern administration and rapid political, social, economic and technological changes, with due regard to expectations of stakeholders, and to recommend appropriate training and capacity building through a competency based framework.

Request for supply of documents in support of filing of case in the CAT

Kind attention of readers!

You are aware that Department of Expenditure (DoE) in principle agreed for the upgradation of grade pay of the genuine cases of the LDC & UDC. And accordingly Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MoS&PI) has been directed to send a proposal for the restructuring of the LDC and UDC, posted under their control through IFD. As has already been said that the restructuring of posts is a time consuming exercise and there will be a considerable cut in the present strength of LDC & UDC as well. Also the implementation of the upgradation will only be taken place from the date of acceptance of the report of restructuring.

In view of the above, Confederation has again advised us to prepare for filing a case in the CAT. For filing a case in the CAT we require the following documents immediately.

1.       Recruitment rule of the Data entry operator (previous and present i.e. prior to the implementation of 6th CPC and after the implementation of 6th CPC).

2.       Pay scales of Group D staff from 3rd Pay Commission onwards and recruitment rules of Group D staff (Previous and present).

3.       Pay scale of LDC & UDC from 3rd Pay Commission onwards and recruitment rules of LDC (Previous and present)

          All friends are requested to please forward the aforesaid documents, especially the recruitment rules of Data entry operator with pre-revised pay scale 4000-100-6000/ immediately so that we may file the case by the stipulated time period i.e. by 1st week of March 2014.

Yours Sincerely

YET ANOTHER MILESTONE.....!!

DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE DIRECTS THE MINISTRY OF STATISTICS & PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION TO SEND PROPOSAL FOR UP-GRADATION OF GRADE PAY OF LDC & UDC TO THEM

Dear members/friends,

Department of Expenditure (DoE) vide OM No. 58(2)/E.III(B)/2014 dated 18th February, 2014(enclosed) has forwarded the letter/documents demanding upgradation of the grade pay of LDC & UDC to Rs. 2400 & 2800 respectively, to the Financial Adviser, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation(MoS&PI) with a direction to examine the representations and forwarding the same to DoE for consideration in the form of a proposal, through IFD. In this respect, this Association has already made it clear that the LDC & UDC issue is a clear anomaly aroused due to the discriminatory recommendation/implementation of the 6th Pay Commission and the same is to be rectified as an anomaly and not as a cadre restructuring. As has already informed you that this Association has decided to file a case in the CAT by 1st week of March for getting implemented the upgradation from the date of implementation of the 6th CPC and the preparation for the same is in full swing. However, since the DoE has directed the MoS&PI in favour of upgradation of Grade Pay of LDC and UDC, a letter demanding implementation of the upgradation from 1.1.2006 is being sent to the Joint Secretary, MoS&PI before filing the case.

Yours Sincerely
