The Sources Close to the Ministry of finance informed that there is proposal to Pay 1% DA from July as an interim Measure.Itis said that the Central Government has not yet decided about the DA rates in Revised Pay scale.
Sources close to Finance Ministry told that the initial installment of DA to central government employees on the revised pay structure w.e.f 1.7.2016 is under consideration. Mean time there is a proposal to pay the DA from July 2016 at the rate of 1% to all CG Staffs. It will be a shocking news for CG Staff, since they are already expecting 2 to 3% DA from July 2016.
PRU is asked to submit Financial Implication of 1% DA
But the fact is the Department of Expenditure has directed the PRU of the Finance Ministry to furnish the details of additional Financial Implications for 1% increase of DA with effect from 1.7.2016 on the revised Pay Structure.
Further the Pay Research Unit has been requested to furnish financial implications for the Period of July 2016 to February 2017 on account of granting 1% DA from July 2016 to all central government employees including Armed Forces and UT Employees.
According to the above information, it is believed that announcement of 1% DA for July installment may be made any time soon.

All Constituents of National Council(JCM)
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 notacceptable to the Staff Side(JCM), therefore, Minimum Wage from Rs.18000 must be enhanced and accordingly Fitment Formulashould 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.

Circle union adressed CPMG for grant of OTA or C.Off to staff on extra seating- early calling in office due to CBS related frequent problems.
Email to Chief Postmaster General Gujarat Circle, Ahmedabad on 13-07-2016
Hon. Sir, Date: 13-8-16
Namaskar. The matter for issue of instructions for noting of details of extra attendance on records of each office and grant of Overtime Allowance or C.Off in lieu of extra attendance by postal staff in CBS offices due to system/Network failure was discussed in relevant item in previous RJCM meeting and it was agreed and instructions are not yet issued by C. O.
It has become a routine harassement to our staff. On 11th Afternoon to 12th August late evening there was total blockage of work due to Sify side issue. Nobody was knowing how much time, they have to sit in office for EOD. Divisional heads were pressing staff to stay in office. Ultimately a message was moved as under:
As per instructions of DD-CEPT, Please leave for the day and instruct the officials to come 7:00 AM on 13-Aug-2016 to clear the Blocking validations.
Thank you for your patience. Good night.
CEPT EOD Team.
Now see, our officers are exploiting staff if they are late in office even for few minutes. So many officers keep attendance registers in their chambers and suppress staff for any occasional lecuna. How can it be agreeable that same staff sit extra hours uncalculated time without any reward? How can they all be asked to attend at 07-00,am without any remuneration or OTA?
Staff side urges for issue of instructions that OTA or C/off should be granted on such occasions. Please issue instructions also as per RJCM discussions.

A note by Rashmin Purohit Circle Secretary All India Postal Employees Union Group 'C' Gujarat Circle, regarding precautions and assurance of security of Postal employees working on counters and dealing with customers.
For Bhuj incident, where a customer assaulted on our PA and damaged furniture/broken counter glasses, police complaint launched. I have talked to SP Bhuj for launching police complaint by head of the office because it is case of damage & distraction of govt properties. I also requested to arrange one "Security personal" in day time. He agreed for both things and also confirmed to Com. Dhaval Gusai our Divisional Secretary at Bhuj.
After quite unsatisfactory function of CBS and delay and difficulties in day to day work, all officers at all levels know everything. Annoyed customers are used to entertain hot, abusing and threatening conversations with our concerned staff. Anytime, violence like this Bhuj incident can occur at any office. I am sad but clear about painful experience of administrative functionaries that it thinks constantly about pleasing higher authorities but thinks a little about sufferings of staff. They are very fast in forcing any type of work on any day with threat of 'serious view' and 'disciplinary actions' but they are very slack in resolving even minor problems of staff. Our staff at lower level suffer various types of exploitation without making it an issue because of fear of revengeful transfer, disc action or other atrocities. This is reality, a distinct picture. As a Circle Secretary, I don't want to leave any problems unattended and settled but if the sufferers don't show courage of writing and representing their problems, it becomes very difficult to raise voice strongly.
We are also taking up above said Bhuj issue with circle administration for review of this incident and ensure security of employees by taking two immediate actions:
1. Provision of CC TV camera with full recording of footages round the clock.
2. Provision of Security guard at all HOs through out day.

QUERY --- Just like the issues of Salary hike, Fitment formula or parity of Pension, the issue of NPS is common to all Central Govt. Departments. In spite of that, this issue appears to be less highlighted. I represent a unit where 80% of the employees belong to NPS and all of us are aware of the pros & cons of the scheme and we are really concerned about our future
Com. S. Das, Circle Secretary, AIPAEA (NFPE), Postal Accounts, Assam Circle, Guwahati.
REPLY ----- Thanks for your concern. The problem of NPS employees are well taken care of by the NJCA. Please see the Press Statement issued by NJCA on 6th July 2016 after taking the decision to defer the strike which is published in confederation website. The last paragraph reads as follows------- "The NJCA particularly notes that the Govt. has set up a separate committee for reviewing the New Pension Scheme, which has been a matter of concern to all employees and workers who are recruited to Govt. services after 01.01.2004." Please also see the para -12 of the Press Communique issued by the Govt. through Press Information Bureau immediately after the Cabinet decision on 29th June 2016 which reads as --------- "Para-12--- The Cabinet also decided to constitute a separate committee to suggest measures for streamlining the implementation of New Pension System (NPS)". Cabinet decision is taken as it is one of the important demand of the Charter of demands of NJCA submitted to Govt. NJCA shall take follow up action on this particular demand as all of us are very much concerned about this important demand. This demand is directly linked to the policy of the NDA Govt. as all of you are aware that it is the previous NDA Govt. which took a Cabinet decision in 2003 to implement New Contributory Pension Scheme to Central Govt. Employees from 01.01.2004.
