7th CPC Allowances Committee Meeting – Allowances should be implemented with effect from 01.01.2016: JCM writes to FM
Dated: December 29,2016
Sub: Meeting with the Committee on Allowances
The Staff Side, National Council(JCM) had a meeting with the Committee on Allowances on 1st September, 2016, wherein it was advised us to send the committee a detailed note. Subsequently, on 16th September, 2016 we sent a detailed note on the allowances to your goodself with the hope that the Committee on Allowances would consider the same, and in case of reservation, they would at least hold a meeting on the detailed memorandum submitted by the Staff Side(JCM).
Almost four months have passed without any outcome. All the Central Government Employees are quite agitated as well as are having mental agony because allowances of the VII CPC, have not been implemented.
You are therefore, requested to fix-up a meeting of the Committee on Allowances, at an earliest to resolve the issues placed in the memorandum of the Staff Side(JCM) on various allowances.
Here it is worth-mentioning that, the issues related to DoP&T were discussed by the Secretary(DoP&T) with the Staff Side on 25th October, 2016. The Staff Side is of firm option that, there should be resolution to the demands, and these Allowances should be implemented with effect from 01.01.2016. i.e, the date from which VII CPC has been implemented.
