At the outset, Secretary(Staff Side)(JCM) as well as Leader(Staff Side)(JCM) and other Standing Committee Member of the NC/JCM(Staff Side) expressed their anguish for non-formation of High Level Committee as was agreed to by the Group of Ministers(Government of India) for settling the issue of Minimum Wage and Multiplying Factor.
NCJCM urged Govt to grant HRA and Allowances w.e.f 1.1.2016
The Secretary, Finance(Expenditure) told that, the committee constituted under the chairmanship of Addl. Secretary(Exp.) with J.S.(Pers.), JS(Estt.) and JS(Imp.) as Members has been made only for this purpose. Let us believe that, after the meeting, report of the said committee would be sent to the Government of India for its acceptance.
The Secretary, Finance(Expenditure) asked the Staff Side(JCM) to give their viewpoint in a Note on the Common Demands to implement these, and the Departmental grievances to their respective departments, and after that, a meeting will again be called.
The Staff Side(JCM) explained its position as well about its demand that, House Rent Allowance should be 10%, 20% and 30% and Transport Allowance must be rationalized and exempted from the Income Tax, Children Education Allowance should be Rs.3,000 and Hostel Subsidy should be Rs.10,000 and these should also be exempted from the Income Tax.
Staff Side demanded that, Post Graduate and Professional Courses should also be covered in Children Education Allowance
The issue of Special Duty Allowance was also raised for N.E. Region by the Standing Committee Members of JCM(Staff Side). 
Fixed Medical Allowance should be Rs.2,000 with Dearness Allowance Indexation, Over Time Allowance must be given, Small Family Allowance should be continued and Dress Allowance needs to be reviewed. Various Departmental Allowances, which have been abolished, should be allowed to continue, like Breakdown Allowance in the Railways and Fixed Conveyance Allowance to Postal Department employees. 
All the Standing Committee Members raised various issues related to Allowances.

This is for your information.

Comradely yours,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

    Everybody knows that both AIRF & NFIR are cheaters.They have betrayed the central govt employees.It is necessary that without adequate finances,it is not possible to give a higher salary.

    Our's is a country of 125 Cr people. Govt has social responsibility and there are much poorer people in the country who strives for one time meal a day.So demanding very high salary is unethical.Abrupt rise in salary will have negative impact on growth as well as economy.But calling a strike and deferring it on last minute without any assurance from Govt shows the true colours of recognised federations.If not bis rise they could have agreed Govt to increase multiplication factor by a minimum of 2.67, which could have very less impact on Govt ex-chequer.
    In stead the strike was deferred and it seems there will be no change in multiplication factor even by additional 0.1 to 2.67.Unions of today have lost moral values.

  • Sir
    What about fitment factor revision?
    Unions didn't get anything till date. At least we would've got 24% hra, if unions were mum. Backed out from strike threat backfires as now govt is not hesitating to take bold anti labour decisions

    No body is ready to believe Mr. Shiva Gopal Misra. He already betrayed Lakhs of employees and pensioners.
