JCM STAFF SIDE UNITY SHOULD BE FOR STRUGGLE

EDITORIAL POSTAL CRUSADER NOVEMBER-2014

JCM STAFF SIDE UNITY SHOULD BE FOR STRUGGLE

History of Central Government Employees reveals that Government has taken undue advantage to deny the justified demands of the Central Government Employees, whenever there was disunity among the JCM staff side organizations. On the contrary, whenever staffside stood solidly united the Government was compelled to concede the legitimate justifys of the employees to a great extent.

After Fifth Pay Commission recommendations, the JCM National council staffside submitted to Government a common charter of demands for modifications of the recommendations of the Pay Commission, which included upward revision of fitment formula and removal of certain glaring anomalies. When Government refused to concede it , notice for indefinite strike was given and finally the Government had to appoint a high-power Group of Ministers Committee under the chairmanship of then Home Minister Shri.Indrajith Gupta and negotiated with the staffside. In the negotiations also the staffside took a united uncompromising stand which ultimately resulted in Government accepting the demand for 40% fitment formula and some other important demands.

Absence of own specialists troubles CGHS patients

NAGPUR : The Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) beneficiaries are suffering due to prolonged absence of specialists in the OPD (out patient department) clinics. They have to shuttle between CGHS clinics and the other government hospitals to consult with the specialists and yet do not get the prescribed medicines for varied reasons. The additional director general (ADG) of CGHS in city Dr D O Tikas, however, says the issue will be resolved soon as the various regulations are still evolving.

CGHS clinics in city only have specialists of medicine, eye, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology and skin. For treatment of all other specialities like neuroscience, psychiatry, orthopaedics, nephrology etc the CGHS clinics refer patients to either the corporation hospitals or any other government hospital including medical colleges. Unfortunately, when they come back with the medicines prescribed by them to CGHS dispensaries, patients are mostly told either drugs are not available or they are not as per combinations and formulae permitted under CGHS scheme. They are also refused medicines on the pretext that they are expensive imported medicines or are not generic formula and so not included in the CGHS list.

At first glance, both transport allowance and traveling allowance might look the same. But, the two are very different for Central Government employees. Recent spate of orders issued by the DOPT and Finance Ministry on TRAVELLING ALLOWANCE was the inspiration behind this write-up.

In its order last week, the DOPT said that senior officers who have to travel by air for official purposes may not have to submit the boarding passes while settlement of TA claims. They will have to henceforth submit the passes only when required. The very next day, the Finance Ministry issued an order that made it mandatory for senior officials to submit boarding passes alongwith TA bills for air journey performed on Government account.

Bank staff may come under 7th pay panel

Bank staff may come under 7th pay panel

Even after several rounds of talks between bank  employee unions and the Indian Banks Association (IBA), there seems to be no consensus on the quantum of salary hike for over 800,000 employees at different public sector lenders.

While the IBA has indicated that the maximum hike that can be offered to employees is about 11%, unions are demanding a 25% raise.

With the stalemate still continuing, sources said a proposal could also be considered to bring them under the purview of the Seventh Pay Commission, which has already been constituted. A large section of bank employees are, however, unwilling to do the same.

Why there is delay in implementation of One Rank One Pension?

Why there is delay in implementation of One Rank One Pension?

Ex-servicemen have protested to PM Modi that his government too has failed to fulfil the promise of ‘one rank, one pension’ –OROP that was part of his party’s poll campaign and a definite promise to our veteran soldiers. Embarrassingly, for the BJP government, ex-servicemen plan a rally to ask why this government has yet to issue an order demand OROP

The long-standing demand of ex-servicemen for ‘one rank, one pension’ (OROP) was accepted by the Indian government in February 2014 with the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram making an announcement in this regard in the Interim Budget. The next government led by Narendra Modi too accepted the demand for OROP in the Parliament. While both the governments stated that ‘money or funding is not an issue’, there still is no order issued for implementing OROP.
