Dear Brother,
Sub: Issues arisen consequent upon 7th CPC recommendations and Government decisions - reg.

The affiliates are aware that the Indefinite Strike action from I 11/07/2016 on Charter of demands mainly "minimum wage and multiplying factor" was deferred on official commitment given by the Government through Finance Ministry's statement on 6th July,20l6 for constituting High Level Committee to examine the issues.

A committee under the Chairmanship of Additional Secretary (Expenditure) with Joint Secretary (Pers), Joint Secretary (Estt), Joint Secretary (lmp) as its members will deal the issues raised through a memorandum of JCM (Staff Side), submitted to the Empowered Committee, among them the major issues are "upward revision of Minimum wage as well Muliiplying Factor".

The 1st introductory meeting chaired by Addl. Secretary (Exp) was held on 30th August ,2016 at North Block, New Delhi attended by myself, S/Shri Shiva Gopal Mishra & M.S. Raja. In the preamble, we tried to impress upon the Addl. Secretary (Exp) the need for revision of minimum wage and Multiplying factor formula on the basis of facts and merits already presented by JCM (Staff Sidef After brief discussion, it was agreed that another meeting of the Committee will be fixed to be held in consultation with the JCM (Staff Side).

We also met Cabinet Secretary, Government of India thereafter and conveyed our disappointment over the delay in sorting out important issues. The Cabinet Secretary has stated that orders have since been issued by the Government for payment of Gratuity to the employees governed by the NPS. He said that the Government has also issued orders revising the salary calculation limit to Rs.7000/- for payment of Bonus/PLB w.e.f. 2014. The Cabinet Secretary has also assured to positively consider remaining pending issues.

The affiliates may please note that a meeting between the Standing Committee of JCM (Staff Side) and the Committee Chaired by Finance Secretiry (Expenditure) will take place on lst September, 2016 at North Block, New Delhi. In the said meeting the issues pertaining to the negative recommendations of 7th CPC on allowances and advances will be dealt.

Yours fraternally,

Dear Comrades!

Sub: Brief of the meeting held today between the Government of India and the National Council (JCM) (Staff Side)

The Government of India has constituted a committee, under the Chairmanship of Addl. Secretary(Exp.) with J.S.(Pers.), JS(Estt.) and JS(Imp.) as members, to deal with the pending issues of our memorandum, submitted to the Empowered Committee, of which prominent are “Minimum Wage and Multiplying Factor”.

The first meeting of the said committee with the National Council(JCM) Staff Side was held today, i.e. 30th August, 2016, which remained almost introductory. Apart from the Official Side members, Shri M. Raghaviah, Shri M.S. Raja and I myself(from the Staff Side JCM) attended the said meeting.

We raised vehemently the issues of “Minimum Wage and Multiplying Formula” and made them very clear that; the VII CPC has accepted Dr. Aykroyd Formula for fixing Minimum Wage, but has not implemented the said formula in full sense, so, that is not acceptable to the Staff Side(JCM), therefore, Minimum Wage from Rs.18000 must be enhanced and accordingly Fitment Formula should also be changed.

It was agreed by the committee that, since we are again meeting on 1st September, 2016 with the Committee on Allowances, the next meeting of the said committee will be fixed in consultation with the Staff Side(JCM).

Thereafter, we also met the Cabinet Secretary(Government of India) and there also we shown our anguish about the inordinate delay in resolving those issues which were agreed to. The Cabinet Secretary said that, orders for the gratuity have been issued for the NPS covered employees, and orders for the PLB and arrears have also been issued. Many of the issues raised by the Staff Side(JCM) have been accepted and implemented and the remaining issues would also be pursued and settled.

Comradely yours,
