Applicability of CCS (RSA) Rules, 1993 to the workers employed in the Ministry of Defence

Applicability of CCS (RSA) Rules, 1993 to the workers employed in the Ministry of Defence
INDWF/M OF D/RSA Rules/2017

The Secretary to Govt. of India
Ministry of Defence,
South Block, New Delhi.

Sub: Applicability of CCS (RSA) Rules, 1993 to the workers employed in the Ministry of Defence – Reg.
Ref : MoD Lt. No. 21 (09)/2012/D(JCM), Dated: 3rd Feb. 2017.

Sir,
We are very much shocked to note the contents of the above referred letter received from MoD. It is mentioned in bid letter that it was unanimously decided vide Para-6 of the minutes of a meeting held on 12/05/2003 that existing practice of formation of unions and associations in defence Establishments under two different rules may not be disturbed and the matter was treated as closed with the consent of all stake holders. It is understood that on this basis CDRA has submitted a representation to MoD and hence MoD is asking our views.  In this regard we wish to submit the following facts for your kind and favourable consideration please.

The subject referred in para No.6 of the meeting held on 12/5/2003 has got nothing to do with the issue which the Federations are repeatedly representing to the MoD and DoP&T.  The demand of the Federations is to implement the Provisions of CCS (RSA) Rules-1993 in its true spirit, so far as the provision of recognition of Association of “Workers” is concerned. In the meeting, the issue referred in the minutes was with regard to certain objections raised by the officials of various Directorates under MoD that they are finding it very difficult to manage the activities of Unions and Associations.  Since non-industrial employees are becoming members of both Trade Unions and Associations.  It was the official side which stated that the existing practice of allowing an employee to become a member of both Union and Association.  The Chairman mentioned that the matter may not be pursued further.  We have not agreed for the same and the minutes of the meeting was not issued with our concurrence. Therefore, the Federation were repeatedly representing the issue to MoD to withdraw the wrong recognition given to the Associations of “Workers” under CCS (RSA) Rules-1993.  Since this rule itself is not applicable to the Workers of Defence and Railways.  It is pertinent to mention here that the Railway Ministry has not recognized even a single association of workers. Since our repeated representation in this regard was not considered favorably by MoD. We were left with no other option than to raise the issue in the National Council (JCM) Meeting held on 15/05/2010.

As decided by the cabinet secretary, chairman of the National Council (JCM) ,DOP&T and Law Ministry has advised the MoD to follow the relevant provisions of CCS (RSA) Rules 1993 strictly. Subsequently in the Steering Committee Meeting for the 91st Departmental Council (JCM) of MoD held on 6/9/2016 the MoD has given the following position in the meeting.

“Opinion of DOP&T was sought and they stated that “ A conjoint reading of the case, in the context of MoD would indicate that CCS(RSA) Rules 1993 would be applicable to Civilian Govt. Servants in the Defence Services but will not apply to workers employed in Defence instatitions of for whom separate Rules of Recognition exist.  Thus for workers employed in Defence installations of MoD for whom separate Rules of Recognition Exist the CCS (RSA) rules. 1993 would not apply” Dopt further advised to consult Ministry of law in the matter. The case was referred to By. Legal Adviser in the matter Dy Legal Adviser (Defence) concurred the views of DOPT and commented that the Administrative ministry may take a decision. Thereafter, decision was taken to call for the information/ details views about the various Associations which are working the industrial installation of concerned Hqrs/Orgns of MoD information in question is still pending from Army HQ/DGNCC/DGDE/DGAQA only after receipt of all the information, further action would be taken in the matter.

Since, the Mod was not taking any decision in the regard; the issue was once again discussed in the meeting of the Standing Committee of the National Council (JCM) held on 25/10/2016.  In this meeting also a clear decision was taken the MoD may adhere to the Rule position.  It is quite natural that the CDRA will go on representing that the workers in the Industrial Establishments should be allowed to be the members of the Association and their recognition should continue in violation of the rules.  However MoD has to consider the matter in its true perspective and dispassionately considering the rule position advise given by DOP&T, LA (Defence) and also decision taken the National Council (JCM) and to withdraw the recognition granted to the Associations of workers (list already available with MoD) in violation of the provisions of CCS (RSA ) Rules-1993  and render justice.  Awaiting for your earlier and favorable action please.

Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,

Sub: Grant of meeting to discuss about the Ordnance Factories.

Respected Sir,
It has to come to our notice that the Prime Minister’s Office vide their ID No.4570319/2017/DS(VK) dated 15/02/2017 has asked the OFB to forward the following information in respect of Ordnance Factories

ii) Complete listing of all existing Ordnance Factories along with the list of products manufactured by each factory, factory-wise number of items of each product produced in each of the last three completed financial years, factory wise value of production of each product in each of the last three completed financial years, the quantum of land owned by each factory and the number of employees in each factory.

The above letter has been circulated by OFB to all Ordnance Factories. After receipt of this letter the Factory employees have started approaching this Federation seeking the background of issue of a such a letter from the Office of Hon’ble Prime Minister. Since we are in dark about the reason / background in this regard. We are not in a position to reply to the employees. Therefore we being one of the major stake holder of the OFB organization we would like to meet you in person and discuss about our apprehensions. Since the issue being common we propose that the three recognized Federations of MoD may please be granted a meeting with your honour.

With kindest regards,

Yours Sincerely,

Increase in CGHS contribution BPS request reconsideration of Subscription under CGHS pre 2016 pensioners
No.SG/BPS/CGHS/17/4
Dated:22-02-2017
Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda
Hon’ble Minister of Health & Family Welfare
Union of India, Nirman Bhawan,
New Delhi – 110 001.

Subject: Reconsideration of Rates of Subscription under Central Govt. Health Scheme revised account of revision of pay & Allowance/Pensions consequent upon implementation of 7th CPC recommendations.

Reference: Office Memoranda No.S.11011/11/2016 CGHS(P)/EHS dated: January 1, 2017 and January 13, 2017 of GOI, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, EHS section, New Delhi – 110 001.

Sir,

Ministry of Health & Family Welfare vide their memo-randa referred above has revised the rates of subscription to CGHS for Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners effective from February 1, 2017. Bharat Pensioners Samaj, a Federation of all India central Govt Civil Pensioners Associations including defence civilians. Postal and Railway having over 650 affiliates/associates, has received numerous representations from individual members who retired long back and wish to enroll themselves now under CGHS and also from affiliates on the exorbitant hike in the subscription rates of availing CGHS facilities.

2. BPS wishes to draw your attention to the fact that many of the past pensioners did not join CGHS at the time of their retirement for reason that CGHS had no facilities in the city chosen by the pensioners for their post-retirement settlement, mostly at their native places. Sir, you may be aware that CGHS is available only in 26 cities of India, the latest inaugurated at Visakhapatnam January 9,2017 by your honour along- with Shri M Venkaiah Naidu, Hon’ble Minister for Urban Development, Hoursing & Urban Povetty Alleviation; parliamentary Affairs, UOI. CGHS facilities in 26 cities is too short a medicare facility for 10.81 lac Central Govt Pensioners/family pensioners plus 5.55 lax defence civilian pensioners plus 3.25 lac postal pensioners i.e 19.61 lac of pensioners/family pensioners scattered throughout the country.

3. The old pensioners desirous of joining CGHS now, on opening of center at the place of their residences or their shifting to a place where CGHS facility is available for some family compulsions, may not find it financially viable to subscribe at the new rates especially shedding subscription for ten years to become whole life member effective from February 1, 2017. Para 5(v) of memo dated January 9,2017, under refernece, reads, “Any pensioner/Family Pensioner who is entitled to avail CGHS facility has not so far got his/her pensioner CGHS card made, the rate of contributions in such cases will be with reference to the level of pay that he/she would have drawn in the post held by him/her (at the time of his/her retirement/death) had he/she continued to be in service now but for his/her retirement/death. Sir, a middle level pensioner retired in February, 1994 from the pay scale of 3000-4500/- (level 11) has till now got an increase in his pension to the tune 9.24 times against which his subscription to CGHS now at the new rates contained in memo of January 9, 2017 is hiked by 108.33 times i.e. 78,000/- now against 720/- subscribed in 1994. An illustration, in support of this with full calculations, is attached as an annexure and may kindly be glanced through.

4. Bharat Pensioners Samaj requests you to come to the rescure of old pensioners and advise the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare to review the new rates prescribed keeping in view the financial viability vis-a-vis rising cost of living and not depriving old pensioners of availing the facility at a stage when it is made available to them by the GOI. Fixing of subscription for old pensioners varying with the number of years passed since retirement/death may please be kept low compared to pensioners retired in later years.
with regards,

yours truly,
