Bio-metric attendance system soon for employees of urban ministries

Bio-metric attendance system soon for employees of urban ministries 

Cleanliness and maintenance of NirmanBhawan improves since last inspection of Shri Venkaiah Naidu 

Shri Naidu makes second surprise check today; takes a serious view of late coming and absenteeism 

Minister of Urban Development and Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu today made a surprise check of NirmanBhawan where the Ministries of Urban Development and Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation are located. He went around various floors and rooms for over an hour from 9.10am. 

Shri Naidu has noted perceptible improvement in the cleanliness and maintenance of NirmanBhawan since his last such inspection on June 12, 2014. He however, noted that personnel at lower rungs like section heads and supporting staff in large number did not report for work in time and took a serious view of the same. Names of late comers were noted. 

During the inspection, Shri Naidu was accompanied by Shri Shankar Aggarwal, Secretary(Urban Development) and other senior officials of both the ministries. 

Discussing the state of affairs later with the senior officials of the Ministries, Shri Venkaiah Naidu issued the following directions: 

1.All Joint Secretaries of the two ministries shall visit their respective establishments every day for a week to monitor attendance and find out chronic offenders; 

2.Necessary and immediate action to be taken against those who report late for work; 

3. Attendance Registers to be withdrawn fifteen minutes after ‘due time of reporting’ and late comers to be marked absent for the day and not to be paid for the same; and 

4. Bio-metric attendance markers to be put in place expeditiously and attendance to be monitored strictly. 

Shri Shankar Aggarwal, Secretary(UD) has assured the Minister that through various measures as suggested by the Minister, punctuality would be enforced within two weeks. 

One Rank One Pension (OROP) - Koshiyari Committee’s definition of OROP might not be acceptable to the government now.....

One Rank One Pension (OROP) - Koshiyari Committee’s definition of OROP might not be acceptable to the government now.....

Whither OROP for ex-servicemen?

The demand for one rank one pension (OROP) was accepted by the previous government and a provision of Rs. 500 crore was made in the interim budget. The new government, stating its intention to implement the demand many times, has also provided for it in the regular budget. However, veterans are nowhere near getting the enhanced pensions envisaged. 

What is the current status on OROP?

A high-level meeting was taken by the defence minister on July 16 to thrash out issues with Service Chiefs, staff of Services headquarters and the top brass of the defence ministry, including defence accounts and the department of ex-servicemen’s welfare attending.

Also present were the representatives of four major ex-servicemen’s organisations to give inputs and plead their case. Regrettably, the meeting was inconclusive. A deadlock was created over the most basic issue, the very definition of OROP between bureaucrats of the MOD on one side and the uniformed fraternity plus the veterans on the other. The defence minister stated that the Koshiyari Committee’s definition of OROP might not be acceptable to the government now. His remark to veterans to lower their expectations reveals the stand of the government on the issue, causing consternation among them.

The political executive as well as the people of this country must realise that OROP is not a concession but is meant to offset restricted terms of service to soldiers wherein they are retired at a very young age. Here, the definition set by the Koshiyari Committee must prevail in that OROP implies that uniform pension be paid to Armed Forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement, and any future enhancement in the rates of pension to be automatically passed on to past pensioners. It is significant that this explanation had already been accepted by the government. My take is that the government needs to show political will and make good on its promises.

NAVAL REGIMENTAL SYSTEM

The Indian Navy looks after its own. Through the Naval Regimental System (NRS), an institutionalised support system has been set up to provide practical help to widows and next of kin of naval personnel. Seven Command Regimental System Officers and their teams are on the job, getting in touch with families of deceased naval personnel, whether retired or serving, to look after them and make certain that they receive all their entitlements. Regimental state units exist on the ground to meet veterans and widows: while updating their database, they educate them on their justifys. They make sure all widows have canteen cards and ECHS memberships besides other documents, enabling them to exercise their justifys and privileges.

Started in 2011, the NRS has now been instituted all over the country and has been successful in providing substantial assistance to a number of naval widows. As part of the targets set for the ‘Year of Ex-Servicemen’ in 2012, the outreach programme for veterans and widows was put into motion.

The next year this was extended to the scheme to undertake full responsibility for the welfare of widows and next of kin. The results have been very satisfying.

Memorandum of Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.- Confederation of cg employeees

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
Central Headquarters
1st floor, North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi-110 001.

Dated : 23.07.2014

Com. Shiv Gopal Misra,
Secretary,
Staff Side, National Council, JCM
13 C Feroze Shah Road,
New Delhi. 110 001.
Dear Comrade,

Sub: Memorandum of Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.

The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers places on record its appreciation over the efforts of the Staff Side, JCM, National Council in preparing and submitting the memorandum to the 7th Central Pay Commission, which has received the widest acceptance and admiration of the Central Government employees. Since the last date for submitting the Department-specific memorandum has been got extended by your efforts uptill 31st July, 2014, the first phase of our endeavour and interaction with the 7th CPC will come to a conclusion in a few days’ time.

I have been directed by the National Secretariat of the Confederation which met on 17th July, 2014 to solicit your kind reference to the memorandum submitted by the Staff Side on behalf of all Federations, Unions, Associations on Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance. We are of the view that the Staff Side, in pursuance of the said memorandum, must seek an audience with the Pay Commission immediately to know the course of action the Commission would like to take in the matter. We must also seek an appointment with the honourable Finance Minister thereafter so as to ensure that a decision on our demands is taken by the Government without any further delay. We hope we need not emphasise the fact that the Central Government employees do expect financial benefit on this score as the erosion in the real value of wages as on date is phenomenal.

We shall be grateful if you will indicate to us your line of approach in the matter.

Thanking you and with greetings,

Yours fraternally,

M. Krishnan
Secretary General.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launches MyGov: A platform for Citizen Engagement towards Surajya

Prime Minister launches MyGov: A platform for Citizen Engagement towards Surajya http://mygov.nic.in 

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today launched MyGov, a platform that empowers the citizens of India to contribute towards Surajya. Speaking on the occasion, which also marked the completion of sixty days of the new Government, the Prime Minister said the success of democracy is impossible without participation of the people. 

Stating that in the past, there used to be a big gap between the people and the processes of governance, the Prime Minister said that in the past sixty days, the experience of his Government was that there were many people who wanted to contribute towards nation-building, and devote their time and energy. The only thing they required was an opportunity to shine and showcase their contribution. The Prime Minister said the MyGov platform is a technology-driven medium that would provide this opportunity to contribute towards good governance. 

The Prime Minister expressed confidence that the people would welcome this initiative. He also invited suggestions to strengthen and improve the platform. He hoped that everyone would join hands through this platform to take the country forward, and to meet the aspirations of the poorest of the poor. He said he was confident of success in this mission, because he recognized the strength and capability of 125 crore Indians. 

The Prime Minister said he looked forward to receiving the suggestions, views and ideas of the people. 

The platform - MyGov - presents an opportunity to the citizens to both ‘Discuss’ and ‘Do.’ There are multiple theme-based discussions on MyGov where a wide range of people would share their thoughts and ideas. Further, any idea shared by a contributor will also be discussed on these discussion forums, allowing constructive feedback and interaction. 

For those who wish to go beyond discussions and wish to contribute on the ground, MyGov offers several avenues to do so. Citizens can volunteer for various tasks and submit their entries. These tasks would then be reviewed by other members and experts. Once approved, these tasks can be shared by those who complete the task and by other members on MyGov. Every approved task would earn credit points for completing the task. 

National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) would implement and manage the platform “MyGov” which would facilitate Citizen Engagement in Good Governance. 

Groups and corners are an important part of MyGov. The platform has been divided into various groups namely Clean Ganga, Girl Child Education, Clean India, Skilled India, Digital India, Job Creation. Each group consists of online and onground tasks that can be taken up by the contributors. The objective of each group is to bring about a qualitative change in that sphere through people’s participation. 

The Minister for Communication and IT, Law and Justice, Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, and senior officers of the Government of India were present at the launch of the platform. 

Road Ahead 

The inauguration of MyGov is a small step towards the larger mission of becoming a one stop centre for citizen engagement towards good governance. Over time the number of groups, tasks and discussions will increase. MyGov would also be used as a comprehensive knowledge repository, giving insights from the sharpest and brightest minds across India.
