New Delhi, dated 26th August,2010
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 17.10.2008 and subsequent reminders dated 29.10.2008 and 19.10.2009 on the subject mentioned above and to say that the 6th Central Pay Commission has recommended that all posts of staff in Group ‘D’ categories will be placed in the revised Pay Band – 1 alongwith Grade Pay of Rs. 1800/- once the staff occupying these posts, are suitably retrained and made multi-skilled. In view of this recommendation of 6th CPC, it has been decided to train all Group `D’ staff of the canteens namely, Safaiwala, Wash Boy, Bearer and Tea/Coffee Maker, working in the non-statutory Canteens, who do not possess minimum essential qualifications, are required to be made multi-skilled for placement in the revised Pay Band – 1 meant for Group `C’ posts. In addition. keeping in view the changing requirement of the Canteens services, it has also been decided to train all the erstwhile Group `D’ employees of canteens who have been placed under PB-1.
2. Accordingly, the concerned Ministries/Departments etc. controlling the non-statutory Canteens have been requested to nominate Group `D’ employees of the Departmental Canteens for training, however, very few Ministries/Departments have nominated their canteen staff for the training.
3. In this regard, the concerned Ministries/Departments are hereby informed that the responsibility, if any, in view of 6th CPC recommendations for placement of Group `D’ staff of canteen to PB-1 without providing requisite training, shall lie with them.
4. All Ministries/Departments are once again requested that details of all Group `D’ Canteen employees who have been placed in PB-1, be furnished to this Department in the enclosed proforma by 10th September, 2010 positively to enable this Department to compile the list for arranging training at the earliest in Delhi and outside Delhi.
