New Delhi: The Joint Consultative Machinery of central government employees–the forum for amicable settlement of grievances of the Central Government employees relating to their service matters–seems to have turned more reasonable and have narrowed down the charter of demands seeking review of the seventh pay panel recommendations.
 In February, the employees’ forum had decided to proceed on an indefinite strike from April 11, if their charter of 26 demands was not met.
The demands also included no privatization of government functions, no FDI in Railways and Defence and no corporatization of Defence Production Units and Postal Department.
As per reports the Empowered Committee of Secretaries headed by the Cabinet Secretary assured that fair consideration will be given to all points brought out by the Joint Consultative Machinery​ before taking a final view.
Following are the narrowed demands presented by the Joint Consultative Machinery​ before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries:
1. Revision of the minimum pay of Rs. 18000 p.m. recommended by the Commission, taking into account commodities prices as on 01.07.2015 and appropriately factoring in for social obligations & housing.
2. Withdraw the New Pension Scheme. The Centre made made the NPS mandatory for employees who joined the service on or after January 1, 2004. It has since been adopted by most state governments also.
3. To re-examine the relevance of allowances and interest free advances in certain departments before taking a decision.
4. Should increase Fixed Medical Allowance from the existing Rs 500 per month to Rs 2000 per month, as large number of cities are not covered under central government health scheme.
5.Should discouraged outsourcing of services breed inefficiency and contractors exploit contract workers.
6. Enhancement in contribution towards Group Insurance Scheme has reduced the actual increase in take home salary considerably. If the rates are to be raised, the Government should bear the insurance premium
7. The recommendation regarding grant of only 80% of salary for the second year of Child Care Leave need not be accepted as this would deter women from availing of Child Care Leave, defeating the purpose of the welfare measure.
Annual increments be granted at the rate of 5% instead of existing 3% and increments may be granted on two dates i.e. 1 st of January and 1 st of July of every year against the current norm of granting of increment on 1 st July of every year.
9. The Commission’s recommendation of downgrading the Assistants of Central Secretariat for bringing in parity with their counterparts in the field offices is not appropriate.
10. Recommendation regarding Performance Related Incentive Scheme unacceptable as these could encourage favoritism.

  • To elaborate to Assistant of CCS staff. Should drop the Ego point of being superior just for one and only one reason that they are in Ministry. But they should think in the larger interest of country. There are many in the field similarly placed most importantly IA&AD staff and other similarly placed staff in organized Accounts Staff of Central Ministries performing and executing the orders/instructions suo-moto in the field means executing orders physically working in delhi in on of the room of Ministry or working in the field, the point here is you are working as per the guidelines of the Ministries of Government of India. Notwithstanding there are many Class One Officers, in the field just on par with the Officers working the Ministry. So where we can find any difference. The answer is very loud and clear –"No Difference". Rest you enjoy the benefit of HRA, TA and other benefits applicable to A1 cites. The filed staff/employee has no objection at all. Jai Hind to one and
    united INDIA (BHARAT).

  • 9. The Commission’s recommendation of downgrading the Assistants of Central Secretariat for bringing in parity with their counterparts in the field offices is not appropriate.

    This point is NOT ACCEPTABLE to field staff. Since, this demand will be treated as "Derogatory" from the view point of larger part of Staff as in your words demand also uses the word "parity with their counterparts" So try NOT TO CREATE ANY DISTURBANCE IN THE PARITY, FOR SOME OF THEM WHO SEEMS TO NEVER UNDERSTAND OR RESPECTING THE COURT ORDERS, THE CLEAR VERDICT OF BEING "ANALOGOUS WORK", WHICH MEANS THERE IS NOT DISTINCTION IN THE VIEW OF GOVERNMENT OR LAW, THE NATURE OR WORK PERFORMED IN DELHI OR FIELD, BASIC SALARY OR NORMS SHOULD NOT DIFFER JUST BECAUSE OF NON IDENTICAL CITIES OF WORK PLACE. SALARY IS DRAWN AND GIVEN FOR THE WORK AND JUST BECAUSE OF DIFFERENCE CITIES. THIS MUST AT ALL COST MUST BE MAINTAINED, ELSE, TRADE UNIONS IMPORTANCE WILL BE WIPED OUT IN THE COMING DAYS, JUST LIKE , COMMUNIST , SAMAJWADI AND EVEN CONGRESS THEORY IS VANISHING FROM THE COUNTRY.
