Respected Madam,

PREFACE

On behalf of All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff Association, I welcome
and wish all the success to the 7th Pay Commission in their mission of evolving pay
structures and other related matters, which is expected to be fair enough for the
government employees to lead a dignified life and perform their duties effectively and
efficiently.
AINTSSA represents about 4000 Technical Supervisors working in Indian Navy in various Naval establishments of the Nation. They are basically from all the
branches of engineering – including Civil , Mechanical , production, Electrical , Computer,
Electronics & Telecom Engineering etc. They supervise and guide around 26000 workforce of
Navy. 
We present this memorandum to 7th CPC representing the following categories in
the Indian Navy:

Around 2400 Chargeman
Around 1600 Foreman

Degree of skills, strain of work and requirement of knowledge, experience & expertise, continued & updated technical knowledge with effective training,
mounting responsibility and accountability, multifaceted work contents, working condition
with hazards and fatigue, mental & physical strain pertaining to these categories have been
elaborately explained in the subsequent explanations.
The key to efficiency and competitive spirit in work lies not only in getting
appropriate salary for the job but also with dignity & status. We welcome the provisions
provided in the terms of reference. Those strategies are to be evolved in order to attract
talents and retain them in service which is considered to be the need of the day in the globalised
era.
Important role of these middle level managers was recognized by 3rd & 4th CPC which exclusively granted appropriate pay scales to technical supervisors based
on their job contents and other factors. But it was shattered by the V & VI CPC which
completely ignored their duties and responsibilities and diluted their status by seriously
disturbing their relativity.
Further the fact that Naval Dockyards, NSRYs, Training centers and Ship building establishments of Indian Navy are basically technical organizations and the safe
successful and efficient performance of the organizations lies primarily in the
hands of their technical work forces who are supervised, trained and overseen by these
technical supervisors.
7th CPC is requested to look into the serious anomalies caused especially by the Sixth CPC which have demoralized the category due to non-redressal of these
anomalies – as brought out in this Memorandum. We request the Pay Commission to kindly
evolve a replacement scale to the categories and ensure natural justice and dignity.
Technical Supervisors shoulder the direct responsibilities of safe, efficient &
‘Failure proof’ production, repair, maintenance and operation of almost all the systems of Naval warships of Indian Navy. Reduction of manpower in artisan staff, introduction of
new ships, addition of new assets and introduction of new & modern technologies etc, have substantially added to their duties and responsibilities over the years. Other
departments provide only necessary support to them in order to enable them to discharge
their functions.
It is unfortunate that both 5th and 6th Pay Commissions had underestimated the significance and sensitiveness of the work-content of the technical supervisors,
their responsibility and accountability. Many vital factors like their ‘Professional
qualifications’ & ‘greater responsibilities’ as well as the accountability towards public safety
and efficiency of the Nation went out of sight of both these Pay Commissions.
But, supporting categories like Accounts, Teachers and Nurses who were all along
in the lower pay scales than the Technical Supervisors, were given up-gradation and
were placed even two grades higher than Technical Supervisors. Worse and even more humiliating is the fact that the pay of categories like MCM, which work under
the Technical Supervisors, were also equated with them – undermining the Supreme Court
judgment of “the supervisor’s pay cannot be equal to the person being supervised”.
It is our earnest request that 7th CPC may consider the facts brought out in our memorandum. Commission is requested to remove various obstacles that come in the
way of attracting talents to the technical supervisory cadre of Indian navy and in
improving the efficiency of working system for which the Commission may kindly provide
appropriate replacement scales for Chargemen and Foremen, which may justify the relativity
of the emoluments in accordance with the job contents, working conditions,
accountability & responsibilities, multi-faceted skills & critical management capacity.
I, also earnestly believe that we may be summoned for tendering oral evidence before 7th CPC in line with the earlier CPCs.
Thanking you, 
yours faithfully,
(BB Mohanty)

Respected Sir,
(Through: Secretary, Seventh CPC by Email to [email protected]

Memorandum to Seventh Central Pay Commission on behalf of
AINTSSA

Reference:- Terms of Reference of Seventh Pay Commission – Gazette
Notification of Government of India No.1/1/2013-E.III(A) Dated 28.2.2014 & Public Notification
of 7th CPC – inviting Memorandums from Associations and others.

In response to the Public Notification of the 7th Pay Commission Dated 5th May,
2014, inviting Memorandums, we, hereby submit our Memorandum for the kind
consideration of the 7th Central Pay Commission, Regarding: Principles of Pay Determination, Proposed
Pay scales of Central Govt. employees and in particular of Technical Supervisors of
the Indian Navy (Naval Dockyards / NSRYs /NADs/ NSDs/ WOTs/ Training establishments etc.), Working Conditions, Allowances, Classification of Post, Pension Benefits,
Interim Relief and other related matter on behalf of All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff
Association (AINTSSA).


ABOUT AINTSSA

AINTSSA (All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff Association) represents
about 4000 Technical Supervisors (Foreman & Chargeman) working in various departments
/ Units on the Indian Navy. AINTSSA was established over 65 years back (in 1949) and is
one of the oldest and most widely represented Associations of middle management cadre of
Technical Supervisors in Indian Navy.
AINTSSA has represented and appeared before 3rd, 4th & 5th Pay Commissions and Committee appointed by 6th Pay Commission not only regarding the issues relating
to the Technical Supervisors on the Naval Dockyards / NSRYs / NADs / NSDs/ WOTs/ SOTs/
IUs, Training establishments etc. but also other vital issues of common interests
concerning the defense civilians and Central Government employees, at large and provided
important inputs on major related issues. 
Technical Supervisors are working in Naval Dockyards / NSRYs / NADs/ NSDs/ WOTs/SOTs/ IUs and Training establishments of Indian Navy. They play vital & pivotal
role in the safe and efficient repair and maintenance of all equipments, systems and
machineries of Naval Ships & Submarines including indigenous and innovative works in Naval
Dockyards and NSRYs, undertake overseeing, inspections and quality checks of various stage
jobs of warship and submarine building in WOTs and SOTs, carry out instructional duties
in order totrain Naval Officers and sailors of Indian Navy and other foreign
Navys in training establishments. NADs are responsible for maintenance, repair and issue of
sophisticated variety of Naval Armaments / Weapons such as missiles, torpedoes, mines, guns
and rocket launchers and small arms 
It is unfortunate that huge injustice was done to the technical supervisors,
especially by the last two Pay Commissions and the Government by not redressing their genuine grievances and by not removing the serious anomalies caused especially after the
Sixth Pay Commission, which seriously disturbed their relativity in comparison to the
non-technical and supporting categories.
In this Memorandum, we have placed our views on the Terms of Reference of the Seventh Pay Commission, including the Principles which should govern the
Structure of Pay and Allowances and the conditions of service of Central Government Employees
including the overall pay structure of Employees and their Post Retirement Benefits, besides
dealing in detail with the Duties, Responsibilities and Proposed Pay Structure of the
Technical Supervisors in Indian Navy.
It is therefore, earnestly requested and prayed that the submissions made in
this Memorandum may kindly be given favorable consideration by the Seventh Pay
Commission and AINTSSA may kindly be granted an opportunity to be heard before the Pay
Commission. 
Thanking you, 
Yours Faithfully,
