EDITORIAL POSTAL CRUSADER OCTOBER-2015

2nd SEPTEMBER-2015 –A HISTORIC STRIKE

            2nd September 2015. Historic  Strike  was a grand success in almost all the  sectors of working class whether it is Government Sector, Public Sector, Private Sector – organized or unorganized. Crores and crores workers have taken part in it and established so many mile stones in the history of working class movement. The grand success of this strike in strategic fields like Road transport, Coal Mines, Petroleum, Power, Tele Communication is one of the important phenomenas.

            This strike was organized by the sponsoring Committee of all Central Trade Unions pursuing 12 points Charter of Demands including withdrawal of anti Labour Laws amendments and FDI in strategic sectors, in protest against lend acquisition Ordinance and Bill and peasants distress and for changing the neo-liberal path of development.

            The strike was the result of hard labour of the thousands of Trade Union activists who mobilized and launched vigorous campaign for the months together..

            This strike of crores of workers has given clear indication to present Central Government that now the worker has awakened and he is not going to allow the attacks and dangers being unleashed on him in the pursuance of neo-liberal economic policies.

            This time this strike was a grand success among Central Government Employees.

            In Postal except some circles it was grand success and better than the previous strikes. It shows that the Postal Workers are also not agreed to accept the proposals and recommendations submitted by Task Force Committee headed by T.S.R. Subramanian Ex. Cabinet Secretary as Chairman who laid out a road map of corporatization and Privatization of Department of Post. This is also culmination of anger and protest of Postal Employees that the 50% Work force of this Department i.e. Gramin Dak Sevaks, who are not treated as Civil servant. The demand of NFPE and PJCA for inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC has not been accepted by Government of India. The Cadre restructuring proposals of all Cadres of Postal; were agreed long back but not being implemented. Thousands and thousands of posts in all Cadres are also not being filled besides vigorous pursuance by the NFPE and PJCA.

            The PJCA comprising NFPE, FNPO, AIPU-GDS (NFPE) and NUGDS has viewed very seriously with grave concern the totally negative attitude of the Government of India and Department of Post and has decided to go on indefinite strike from 23rd Nov-2015 on the above demands.

            NFPE appeals to the entirety of Postal, RMS and GDS Employees to start preparations right now to make the indefinite strike from 23rd November-2015a grand success to compel the Government of India and Department of Post to concede our demands. Nothing in past has been achieved without struggle and nothing is going to be achieved without struggle. So unite and fight and achieve.

UNITY FOR STRUGGLE AND STRUGGLE FOR UNITY.

Highlights of 7th Pay Commission Report Spreads on Social Media and Leading Websites

Rumors on 7th Pay Commission Report – Highlights of the report spreads on Social Media and Leading Websites

Photograph of 7th Pay Commission’s Document Spreads like Wildfire on Social Media

“A copy of one of the important letter pertaining to the 7th Pay Commission surfaced in the social media yesterday.”

A crucial document containing the signatures of four members, including the chairman and secretary of the 7th Pay Commission was released on the Social Media, creating a buzz. The document, titled “Report of Seventh Central Pay Commission Highlights” contained the seal of the Central Government, stated that it would be submitted on September 1, 2015. The report showed three pages of the document. At the end of it, there were signatures, along with names and designations of four members of the Pay Commission, including the chairman and secretary.

The document also contained the recommendations of Revised Pay Scale Structure for all groups of Central Government employees. In addition to abolishing the Grade Pay Structure, the new minimum pay scale has been fixed at Rs.21,200. There is also indicated to provide a six percent annual increment.

There is brief information on HRA, CEA, Pay Fixation and Increment. There is no information about the person/s who had released the document. Most importantly, the information provided in the document is hard to believe.

The 7th Pay Commission was all set to submit its report to the Central Government towards the end of September, but the Centre has given it an extension of four more months. According to the government, the decision was made after the committee requested for additional time to prepare the final report.

For the past few weeks, the curiosity of Central Government employees about the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission has increased. This is reflected by the increased searches on the internet for any information on the new Pay Commission. They are eagerly reading up all kinds of reports, analysis, and comments on the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on topics like new pay scale, promotions, and revised allowances. They are also expressing their opinions on such articles.

There is nothing wrong in writing articles about the 7th Pay Commission based on personal opinions and aspirations. But, there is nothing funny about producing a fake document and releasing it on the internet.

Compulsory Retirement to Central Government Employees on the Basis of their Efficiency may be a Difficult Task for the Government….


Compulsory Retirement to Central Government Employees on the Basis of their Efficiency may be a Difficult Task for the Government….
Recently, the Central Government had issued an order (No.25013/01/2013-Estt.A-IV)regarding strengthening of administration by executing compulsory retirement to the central government employees who are found to be inefficient, incapable or unable to fulfill the targets set by their higher authorities, after completing certain years of service.
The order brought panic among employees and questions arise how to identify those employees who are given compulsory retirement. The order was issued on the basis of CCS (Pension) Rule 56 (j) and Rule 48 which explains the above points. The government had clarified that if the order comes into effect, it won’t be treated as a punishment to the employees.
Article 311 of the Constitution of India says that the government should ensure security to an employee. As per the Rule, an employee should be well informed of any actions to be taken against him and be to given opportunity to explain on his part. But this rule is not applicable to criminal offences or against the security of the country.
The order which was released by DOPT, with some Supreme Court orders was a little bit strong than the previous ones. But it will not be an easy exercise for the government to implement the order as it has to face strong opposition from the employees, Trade Unions and Federations.
To analyze and determine employees’ efficiency was always a headache for the government. In the 6th CPC, the commission recommended special yearly increment to 20% of the central government employees in each department for outstanding performance on their field. But no such appreciations had happened so far in any of the departments.
Let us wait and see what will happen next….!

Change of nomenclature of posts of  LDC & UDC-Pundicherry Association writes to DOP&T

THE MINISTERIAL EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION, KARAIKAL
UNION TERRITORY OF PUDUCHERRY
(Affiliated to the Puducherry State Govt. Employees Central Federation)

No. MEA/KKL/VII-RC/2015/               Karaikal, 18th September 2015


To

Shri Parminder Singh
Under Secretary to the Government of India
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)
New Delhi 110016. E-mail:- parminder.edu@nic.in

Respected Sir,

Sub:       MEA,KKL – Change of nomenclature of posts of  CSCS/CSS – Proposal – Submitted.

Ref:        F.No.21/12/2010-CS.I(P), dt. 17th August, 2015 of the Under Secretary to the Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions(Department of Personnel & Training), New Delhi.
*****
With reference to your circular cited, We, the Ministerial Employees Association based at Karaikal District of the Union Territory Government of Puducherry and affiliated to the Puducherry State Govt. Employees Central Federation, submit the following suggestions for changing the nomenclature of the CSCS/CSS cadre. Since the Ministerial employees of the UT of Puducherry follows the cadres structure of the Government of India, we submit our suggestions for your kind perusal and favourable consideration.
The Government employees suffer from a culture of neglect, characterized by low and unequal pay, minimum scope for promotion, minimum monetary benefit on promotion, least increment value, lack of appreciation for the good work done, lack of performance based incentives, and high levels of demoralization. A number of such problems are besetting the Government service.
The roots of neglect run deep.While the evidence suggest that the impact of modernization of the offices on the workforce and their pay and conditions have been largely negative, the ministerial employees of the Government of Pundicherry have continued to demonstrate high levels of commitments to their public service as well as their Government. The talent of our workforce has been extended particularly in office automation and computerization. Most of the employees welcome their extended roles and show enormous commitment and dedication in executive their services.

At this juncture, the proposal to change the nomenclature of the ministerial cadre in CSCS/CSS is a welcome move and a step in the right direction which is long due. Though the pay structure of the ministerial staff needs a thorough overhaul, Such a new approach to the treatment of employees and significant investment in capacity building at all levels of the ministerial cadres, will improve their performance and to some extent reduce the growing demoralization and discontent among the ministerial employees.

 We propose the following change in the nomenclature of the CSCS/CSS cadre that may be extended to the ministerial cadre of Government of Puducherry.


S.No.
Existing Designation
Service
Proposed Designation
(i)
Superintendent
CSS / Govt. of Puducherry
Assistant Secretary to Government (ASG) (or) Administrative Officer (AO)
(ii)
Assistant
CSS/ Govt. of Puducherry
Executive Officer (EO)
(iii)
UDC
CSCS/ Govt. of Puducherry
Senior Executive Assistant (SEA)
(iv)
LDC
CSCS/ Govt. of Puducherry
Junior Executive Assistant (JEA)

The Junior Executive Assistant may be made the feeder cadre and all other posts be filled-up by promotion. The minimum entry level education may also be changed to (i) Graduate in any discipline from a recognized University in 10+2+3 pattern (ii) Higher Typewriting 45 wpm (iii) working knowledge in Office Automation. It is re-iterated that in the Government of Puducherry the ministerial employees are an integral part of the government machinery and its management. And with their active participation only the governments’ services are delivered to the public of Puducherry UT and they act as indispensable bridge between the policy makers and its beneficiaries ie., Government of Puducherry and its citizens.       
We took the recommendations of the Vth CPC wherein the concept of introducing the Executive Assistant in the ministerial cadre / administrative structure was first recommended. We welcomed the introduction of Desk Officer / Multi-functional Executive Assistant concept and we were in favour of implementing the same on trial basis in Government of Puducherry administration. Though this concept is yet to be implemented, the Government of India may while considering the change of nomenclature of the ministerial cadre, may consider the above nomenclature suggested by our Association.
We wish to highlight that:
“Investment in Government Employees is the best investment Government will ever make. It will not only improve the Government, but also will improve the lives of all those around”
“INVEST TO IMPROVE”
MINISTERIAL EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION,
KARAIKAL
U.T. OF PUDUCHERRY


Yours faithfully,
For The Ministerial Employees Association, Karaikal
