There have been no specific complaints regarding misuse of funds. However, there are some complaints about lack of funds allocated to the ECHS. The budget allocated at Budget Estimate stage was less than projected estimate and additional funds were allocated at Revised Estimate (RE) stage. The shortfall of medicines is not directly related to lack of funds and it is attributed to procedure involved in procurement of medicines. Some private hospitals have withdrawn their services from ECHS due to various reasons including low rates, delay in clearance of bills etc.

The steps taken by the Government to improve health care under ECHS include sanction of additional manpower to ECHS polyclinics, revision of remuneration, bringing all 28 Regional Centres under online billing mode for timely processing and payment of medical bills of empanelled facilities, upgrading ECHS Card, empanelment of more medical facilities etc.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh in a written reply to Shri B.V. Naik in Lok Sabha today.

Dear Comrade
The Standing Committee of the Staff Side, National Council has interaction with the 7th CPC on 25th Feb. 2015 followed by the Standing Committee meeting of National Council (JCM) with the Secretary DOPT in the afternoon. The meeting with the Secretary Personnel came as a result of the decisions that we have conveyed for organizing March to Parliament and other programmes, culminate as a pre pretretory meaure for an indefinite strike. The agenda for discussion with the Secretary Personnel was, therefore, the charter of demands (10 points) we had submitted to the Government after the National Convention of all Central Government Employees Organizations on 11th December, 2014. The response from the Government undoubtedly establish the fact that ultimately they have taken note of the growing discontentment of the Central Government employees manifested through various programmes we have jointly carried out by this time. We, therefore, earnestly request the affiliates and leaders of various organizations at the field formations to intensify the ongoing programmes to compel the Government to settle our demands. We give hereunder a brief resume of the discussions we had with the Pay Commission and the Secretary Personnel, which is indicative of the reflections of both the entities.

Meeting with the Pay Commission:
The Chairman informed of his inability to take a final decision on the question of merger of DA and Interim relief as the Government has not referred this matter to them and further stated that this Govt. can take decisions on the two issues, without any report from the CPC. He added that the memoranda received from the staff Side on these two issues had been forwarded to the Government. He wanted the staff side to take up the matter with the Government and assured that on receipt of the reference from the Government they would consider the matter without any loss of time. However, they indicated that the Commission would strive to submit their report to the Government within the stipulated time frame and therefore, the question of Interim relief, in his opinion should not arise at all. The Staff side requested him to appreciate the fact that the matter concerning merger of DA and interim relief has been raised by them not on account of the possible delay on the part of the Pay Commission but emanated from the fact that the erosion in the real value of wages of the Central Government has been eroded during the period drastically.

On Oral Evidence:
The methodology to be adopted by the 7th CPC in the matter was discussed at length. It was ultimately decided that the Staff Side after considering the viewpoints expressed by the CPC will draw out a plan both for the National Council Staff Side and for the organizations at the Departmental levels. The scheduled date for meetings with the Pay Commission will be finalized after Holi festival i.e. 5th March, 2015. The Staff Side will discuss the matter and will submit its consensus view to the Commission soon in this regard. In any case, the staff side would require the following information immediately at its office.

1. Name of the organization which has submitted its memorandum to CPC with date of submission.
2. Underwhich Ministry the Department function
3. Whether the organization is recognized or not
4. The number of employees, whom the organization represents
5. The total – Group C and Group B Non Gazetted – strength of the concerned Department.
Inclusion of GDS
The Chairman assured that he would go through the Supreme Court Judgment in the matter. However, fie added that the inclusion or otherwise of the GDS within the purview of the 7th CPC is the prerogative of the Government and except making its opinion clear on the subject he might not be able to do anything further in the matter.

Standing Committee meeting with Secretary Personnel: There had been no tangible result in the discussions. The impression gained was that the staff side was invited to show that the dialogue continues, However, we give here under the response of the Government in respect of the issues subjected for discussion. The rest of the issues in the charter will be discussed later on at another meeting, for which the date has not been indicated.

1. Interim relief, Merger of DA, Date of effect, Inclusion of GDS in the ambit of 7th CPC; Settlement of anomalies; The views expressed by the official on each of the above items are as under

a). Interim relief is normally given if there is an apprehension of abnormal delay. Government has been informed by the 7th CPC that they would adhere to the time schedule.

b). DA merger: Since the Pay Commission would be submitting its report soon, the question of merger of DA would automatically be in-built in their recommendation.

c). It is the prerogative of the CPC to recommend the date of effect. Govt.’s role will come only after the recommendations are received.

d). GDS: Govt. has not considered the GDS as Civil Servants. However, the latest recommendation received from the Postal Department in the matter is said to be under the consideration of the Govt.

e). The National Anomaly committee will meet again shortly and the resolution on agreed items would be expedited.

2. FDI and Privatization of Railways and Defense factories and Corporatization of Postal.
The Staff Side was advised to take up the issue at a higher level as the issues raised were said to be policy matters.

3. No ban on recruitment.
The official Side clarified that the Govt. has not instituted any ban on recruitment. There is only ban on creation of posts. However, for operational posts, exemption has been provided in compelling situation.

4. Scrap PFRDA Act.
The official side will look into the letter received from the Railway and Defence Ministers. The scrapping of the Act was said to be not within the scope of discussion. The Joint Secretary Financial Services explained the various provisions of the Act and as to how the contributory pension scheme would be beneficial to the subscribers. The Staff Side requested the Government to make it optional that anybody who feels that the new scheme would be beneficial would opt for it and others will have the opportunity to opt out and adopt the old defined benefit scheme scheme of Pension.

5. Closure of Medical Stores Depots and Printing and Stationery Departments
It was categorically cleared by the Govt that there had been no decision to close down the Printing Presses and Stationery Department. In view of the new situation in which all Departments are permitted to purchase the requisite stationery items from the market, the Urban Development Ministry has suggested certain modernization and restructuring the of Stationery Department. The Govt. was prepared to discuss the details thereof and arrive at an amicable settlement, acceptable to the Staff Side. The official side expressed willingness to discuss the matter with the staff Side of the concerned Department along with the 3 (three) members of the standing Committee. In respect of Medical store depots also, the official side clarified that the department would not be closed down and no employee will be retrenched. They also wanted the staff side to meet and discuss the issue with them to clear the doubts and suspicion in the matter.

6. Active Functioning of JCM

The Government will convene the meeting of the National Council soon. the convening of the Departmental Councils would be taken up with the concerned Departmental heads. The delay in the grant of recognition may be brought to the notice of the Department of Personnel for corrective action at their end

7. Compassionate Appointment

Government will consider lifting of the ceiling of 5% but no assurance was held out. The other issues in the charter will be subjected to discussion later on.

With Greetings
Yours fraternally,

Shiv Gopal Mishra

     Dear all Vet Brother,

    After noticing the comments of one of our Vet Bro - b singh, in the chatroll, I am compiling the follwing points (including ones mentioned by him) for the benefit of information of all all:- 


a) There is no real representation of 95% strength of JCO's/NCOs/Ors. Most of these JCO’s/NCOs’/OR’s are serving in the field. The JCO’s/NCOs’/OR’s risk of life is more than officers working in the office.

b) The MSP (Military service Pay) – It must not be linked with Basic pay or the Rank pay at all. Sep to General is doing same military service and it must be same for all ranks.  The MSP for Officer is – Rs 6000/-, whereas, for Ors/NCOs/ JCO's and equivalent ranks is Rs 2000/- only. For example at Leh – Ladakh on the same pplace a sep and a officer is on duty and you can see both are human beings and having the same feelings of difficulties, coldness and loneliness.

c) The Sub Maj is the highest JCO rank reached by an OR, equival to Gr B Gazetted civil ranks. In the 6th CPC they are clubbed with Ors/Jawan for MSP Rs 2000/-. The JCO’s are deliberately down graded in their rank and status which is a  great injustice to them.

d) A serviceman job in defending the nation itself is an honour on him.  But Honorary ranks are given to JCOs at the fag end of their service, after 30 plus years of service, which is a rank injustice to them. (There is no such thing Honorary posts in Civil service. The Group C&B service employees get promoted to Gp A posts after putting in some years of service. An employee joining as LDC some time retire as Dy Commissioner/Dy Collector/Under Secretary rank). The top JCO be given the regular promotion in the ranks of Lt/Capt/Maj ranks after completing 25, 28 and 32 years of regular service. 

d) ACP and Promotion – Officers get three promotions in eight years. The Ors get one ACP in 8, 16 and 24 years, to keep the defence forces young. A Sep retires in 17 years. How he can achieve 3 ACPs in his service?. Hence,
Sep to Hav ACP must be given on 5, 10 and 15 years of interval or the same promotion criteria for Officer,

e) Pay and pension disparity a wide gap from Sub Maj to officer rank. Officer’s strength 5% and they  have Pay Bands – 3, 4, Apex scale (HAG,HAG+) and Fixed (Four pay bands). But the Ors/NCOs/JCOs strength is 95% and they have pay bands–1& 2(Two pay bands). The Ors/NCOs/JCOs and equivalent ranks must be placed in three Pay bands. i.e,  Pay band 1-- Sep and NK Pay band 2-- Hav, Nb Sub, Sub Pay band 3—Sub Maj and Hony Lt & Hony Capt.

f) Grade Pay - The existing grade pay from Sep to Sub Maj is low and put them in Higher grade pay.

g) Pension 75 % (percentage ) to JCO’s/ORs --- A sep retires in 17 years and Hav in 24 years of service or below 35 and 45 years of age respectively .This retirement age is very early compare to civil servants age of 60 years. There must be 75% of the last pay drawn and officers’ pension must be 50% of the last pay drawn. After retirement the condition of JCO’s/ORs is very bad and working in security agencies for rupees four – five thousand only.

h) A seargent of IAF is considered as Senior Non Commissioned Officer for all the responsibility, but for pay band in 6th CPC his placed is at the bottom of PB 1. Hence, in the 7th CPC Sgt should be protected as a SNCO &upgraded to PB 2.

A)      Lateral Absorption: The armed forces personnel are a vast pool of skilled workforce having trained and experienced in different spheres of activity. They are disciplined and punctual and mostly can handle any situation or even can handle any new situation without much of difficulty. This valuable workforce could be deployed straight-away into various central and state Govt departments at appropriate levels in Govt Depts- such as :

I.      Armed Forces HQrs and Units in civilian posts.
II.    All Defence PSUs (numbering 42).
III.  All Central Para-military forces/CPOs/Shipping Cos.
IV.  The Central Election Commission or the State Election Commissions.
V.     All States/UTs Police Forces.
VI. All Central/States/UTs Fire & Rescue/Forest/Jails/ Disaster Management Deptt.
VII.  Railways/Roadways/Airways and Logistics Depts.
VIII.All other Depts of State/UT Govts in the Revenue, Education, Health, Electricity/Municipality Depts etc.
IX.    Any other Govt Deptt/PSU etc.

B)Disabled Veterans. Armed Forces recruit A Cat medical category individuals and as such any disability occurs in the course of military duty is to be automatically be treated as an Occ. Hazard. The Disability Act applicable to Civ employees must also be applied to army disabled personnel. They are to be employed in other posts or their dependents be absorbed in their place in the Govt. Service. They must not be thrown out of employment and the Medical Officers/Account Officers certifying  – disability attributable military service – may be made compulsory, in tune with the recent judgements of the Apex Court.

C) ECHS Facility. This facility is available only in limited places and the ex-servicemen are scattered in all over the hinter land. CGHS facility may also be extended to ESM within a 20 KM distance to their native place, instead of ECHS clinic which is far away (hundreds of KMs).

D)Reservations: Presently, different % of jobs are reserved for ESM in different state/Central Govt deptts. A Uniform %of 30% C class jobs, 20% B Class jobs and 10% A class jobs may be reserved for ESM

E) Reservation in allotment of Agri lands/House sites/Dwelling units:  Almost all the ESM would have served in border and difficult areas and thousands of miles away from their native place. And return to the native place after retirement. They face the problem of shelter besides staring bleak prospects of livelihood. They may be allotted 5-10 acres of agri.lands, house sites at the opted place, 20% of the Govt dwelling units, near to their native places.

F) ESM FINANCE CORPORATION. The Govt may and advance advance loan to ESM to set up SMEs on concessional rates or subsidise the cost/interest.

G) Senior Citizens get concessional tickets in Railways and in some state Roadways. ESM may also be given 50% concession for their travel.

H) Reservation in Allotment of Agencies.: Unlike the Gas/Oil agencies, the ESMs may be allotted (fixed %) in all Govt Agencies like Agri markets, Fair Price Shops, Security, Rail/road logistics, tourism and travel, parking slots at Railway Stations/Bus stands/Govt offices or Municipalities etc.

I) The ESM be exempted from Property tax/registration/stamps duty for transfer of property (agri land/dwelling units) in their names.

J)  The ESM be exempted to pay court fee etc. in litigation matters.

K) The ESM be exempted from payment of fee for tendering Govt works and small works may be nominated to them.
