TOWARDS A FINAL ACTION ON LDC & UDC GRADE PAY ISSUE…

TOWARDS A FINAL ACTION 

WHY THE REPRESENTATIVES OF LDC & UDC SHOULD ASSEMBLE AT DELHI ON 9TH JANUARY 2014…?

This Association has been receiving opinion from LDC & UDCs of various Ministries of GOI in respect of upgradation of grade pay viz. (1) taking up of the LDC & UDC issue through political leaders including Sonia Gandhi (2) Challenge the present pay structure of LDC & UDC in the Principle bench of CAT. (3) Conducting pen-down strike to achieve the demand; and now we have a 4th opinion i.e. getting the grade pay of LDC & UDC upgraded through restructuring.

As regards the option (1) above, several of the experienced persons have advised me the way is not workable because no political leader/Multi-cadre Associations would support a particular cadre without considering the after effect of the pay structure of other cadres. Even the railway unions have not demanding upgradation of grade pay of the lakhs of junior clerks working in the railways.

Through option (2), we can put up the actual work load of LDC & UDC in subordinate offices; the decision of the pay Commission increasing the educational & technical qualification of LDC without an equal increase in the pay structure; subsequent increase of Grade pay by several state Governments who have implemented the 6th CPC in their state and other related issues before the court through a very good advocate.  It is worth to mention here that Confederation also has advised us to file a case in the principle CAT on the issue.

The 3rd opinion as received i.e. conducting of pen down strike by the LDC & UDCs is not practical because these LDC/UDC are spread over various ministries of GOI and lack of a common Association/Federation representing all these LDC & UDC. Moreover, we have the experience that major Federations, in which LDC & UDC of the respective Departments also members are not taking any active initiation to resolve the LDC/UDC issue.

As regards the 4th point, the instructions of Ministry of Finance to the FA, DoP&T is not complete. Restructuring of LDC & UDCs by each ministry according to merits of the representation made by the Associations is not practical. DoPT has to issue detailed instruction regarding the nomenclature of the posts, time frame for its implementation etc.

Thus in order to take a decision/forming a steering committee for further action a meeting of the representative/ Associations is organized on 9th January 2013 at New Delhi. The venue will be JANTHAR-MANTHAR i.e. the venue of Dharna of Confederation. The top leaders of Confederation will be available in the venue to take advice on the issue. We appeal all our friends, who gave me much energy to fight the case so far, to please attend the meeting.

All friends who attend the meeting may please co-operate by making their own arrangements for stay at Delhi.

With regards 

Yours sincerely

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDIAN RAILWAYMEN
27th NATIONAL CONVENTION – VISHAKHAPATNAM
10-12th DECEMBER 2013

RESOLUTION-1

ABOLISH NOTIONAL SALARY CALCULATION CEILING FOR PAYMENT OF PRODUCTIVITY LINKED BONUS (PLB)

The Twenty Seventh Annual Convention of NFIR in session at Vishakhapatnam on 11th and 12th December 2013 takes note of NFIR’s consistent struggle since the year 1969 for introduction of the concept of Productivity Linked Bonus” (PLB) to Railwaymen.

Due to the persuasion, initiative and relentless struggle of NFIR, the Government had agreed for evolving the Scheme of PLB to the Railway employees in the year 1979 and consequently an agreement was reached between the Federations and the Railway Ministry for introduction of PLB Scheme in the Railways. The NFIR had from time to time pleaded for bringing positive changes in the scheme more particularly relating to salary eligibility limit and calculation ceiling limit. The continuous efforts of the NFIR has yielded satisfactory results, so much so, the Railway employees in all categories become entitled for Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) Rs. 3500/- p.m. (on the basis of number of days of wages). This revised calculation limit was given effect from 2006-07 onwards as approved by the Union Cabinet on 03/10/2008.

Though the railway employees are presently entitled for P.L. Bonus in terms of number of days wages subject to the calculation of the same Rs.3500/- p.m., the National Convention strongly demands that the notional calculation system presently followed should be dispensed with and the Bonus paid on the actual wages of the employees.

The National Convention therefore, demands that the existing calculation ceiling for payment of PL Bonus should be reviewed to facilitate employees to receive their legitimate P.L. Bonus on the basis of actual wages drawn.

MERGE DA WITH PAY & GRANT INTERIM RELIEF

The revision of wage structure for Central Government employees had been undertaken by the successive Pay Commissions appointed by the Government of India during the past decades and gave their reports. These reports have been implemented by the Government with some modifications and improvements. However, anomalies and aberrations continue to persist.

Previous Pay Commissions (3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th) have by and large covered the aspects of the principles of wage determination. But, however, the job contents, remuneration commensurating with the nature of duties and responsibilities have not been taken into consideration by the Pay Commissions while determining the revised pay structure, consequently the Railwaymen have been put to disadvantage.

The 5th CPC had recommended that the DA must be merged with pay and treated as pay for computing all allowances as and when the percentage of Dearness compensation exceeds 50%. Accordingly, even before the setting up of 6th CPC, the DA of 50% was merged with pay in the year 2004.

Presently, the Dearness Allowance is 90% of pay as on 01/07/2013 and is likely to touch/cross 100% of pay as on 01/01/2014. The recommendation for merger of DA to partially compensate the erosion in the real wages was first mooted by the Gadgil Committee in the post 2nd Pay Commission period. The 3rd CPC recommended such merger when the Cost of Living Index crosses over 272 points i.e. 72 points over and above the base index adopted for the pay revision. In other words, the recommendation of the 3rd CPC was to merge the DA when it crossed 36%. The Government in the National Council JCM at the time of negotiations had initially agreed to merge 60% DA. The 5th CPC had merged 98% of DA with Pay.

As the DA already stood at 90% of pay and further revision is due on 01/0112014 when DA is likely to touch/cross 100%, it is therefore necessary that the Government takes steps to merge 50% with pay for all purposes w.e.f.01/01/2011 for ensuring compensation to the erosion of the value of real wage of Government employee.

The 27th National Convention, therefore, urges upon the Government of India to consider the demand and accord sanction for merging DA component of 50% of pay with the Pay for all purposes with effect from 01-01-2011.

The National Convention also appeals to the Central Government to grant Interim Relief to the employees as well as retired employees to sustain in the light of continued price rise of various commodities.

3. VIIth CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION

In the NFIR’s Election Manifesto-2013, Federation has committed to the Railway employees that the NFIR shall struggle for achievement of 7th Central Pay Commission. After Secret Ballot Elections results declared on 2nd May 2013, the NFIR Working Committee met at New Delhi on 30th / 31st May 2013 and passed resolution for preparing Railway employees for launching indefinite strike if the demands, more importantly appointment of 7th CPC, are not redressed by the Government of India and the Ministry of Railways. The Charter of Demands along with NFIR’s communication was sent to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Finance Minister, Railway Minister, Labour Minister etc.

It is a matter of satisfaction that the pressure and consistent struggle since Feb 2013, launched by the NFIR and Railway employees on the Government, has yielded result, wherein the Government has made announcement on September 25. 2013 for constituting 7th Central Pay Commission.

The 27th National Convention now in session in Vishakhapatnam unanimously resolves to convey its thanks to the Hon’hle Prime Minister for his decision to set up 7th Central Pay Commission. The National Convention, however, demands inclusion of one of Secretary level Officers of Railway Ministry as member of 7th CPC which may facilitate realistic examination of the issues of Railway employees.The National Convention also appeals to the Government to include a Labour Representative as one of the Members of the Commission.
