Tatkal booking likely to get easier – IRCTC

Tatkal booking likely to get easier – IRCTC
“Attempts are being made to simplify the extremely popular Tatkal reservation system.”
Tatkal booking is a blessing in disguise for train travelers who urgently need tickets, but the process of booking tickets on this system could be a constant source of irritation. Though plenty of reasons are attributed to it, the main grouse is the slow server connectivity and the IRCTC website’s inability to handle multiple user load.
Addressing this issue, Sandeep Dutta, the Chief Public Relation Officer of IRCTC, which is a sister concern of the Indian Railways, said, “All over the country, more than ten lakh tickets are reserved everyday, of which about 50% is booked through IRCTC.
“On the Tatkal system, between 10 AM and 12 PM, nearly 1.5 lakh tickets are booked everyday on the IRCTC website. In the beginning the website server was able to book only 7000 tickets per minute. Now, it has been raised to 14,000 e-tickets per minute.
“When users all over the country try to reserve tickets on Tatkal at the same time, the website crashes due to the overload. This has constantly been a huge challenge for IRCTC. Despite the fact that IRCTC has given a number of facilities, its reputation suffers due to this.
To tackle this problem, IRCTC decided to purchase five new world-class Singapore-based servers. These servers will be added to the main IRCTC server in another ten days. User capacity will increase from 14,000 to 24,000 per minute maximum. There will not be any website crash after that.
So, Tatkal reservation is going to become much more user-friendly.

7th Pay Commission expected to submit its report to the Centre in September

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


“The 7th Pay Commission’s status quo explanation on its report has created a huge buzz”

According to reliable sources of information, the 7th Pay Commission is expected to submit its final report including the revised pay and pension structure for Central Government employees and pensioners to the Central Government on in the first week of September.

As confirmation of the news, the 7th Pay Commission, on its official website had published an announcement yesterday. It said, “Pay and Pension proposals, expectations in facilities & benefits, and valuable suggestions were received from Central Government employee unions, associations, members of the Defence services and NC JCM Staff Side. All these will be considered. Personal interactions shall not be held anymore. All the demands and suggestions have been examined and the task of preparing the final recommendation report has almost ended. In addition to this, the report containing all the recommendations will be prepared within the stipulated time that was allocated.”

Everybody is pleased with the authorized news that the 7th Pay Commission report, which contains the new pay and perk structure that directly affects more than 40 lakh Central Government employee all over the country, will be ready on time.

There were rumours that the Commission might seek an extension of another six months. Many reasons were given for this claim and most of these were very convincing. It is a welcome move on the part of the 7th Pay Commission to voluntarily come forward and announce their current status.

If everything goes as planned, the 7th Pay Commission recommendations will come into effect from 01.01.2016 onwards.

Meanwhile, there is no doubt in the fact that employees are extremely curious to find out how much their salaries would increase if the new Pay Commission recommendations are implemented.

We want One Rank One Pension too: Paramilitary Forces

We want OROP too: Paramilitary Forces

Even as the Centre struggles in implementing the One Rank One Pension (OROP) system for former defence personnel, members of the paramilitary forces have now presented a demand to be included in the pension scheme.

More than the armed forces, we are the ones who are at the warfronts. We are being discriminated against when it comes to pension schemes. We want the OROP scheme to be implemented for us too, they say.

In a memorandum issued to 7th Central Pay Commission through Home Ministry, paramilitary forces has demanded the OROP for themeselves arguing that they are the ones who are at the warfronts.

The memorandum also insisted the difference in all special allowances with the armed forces. At present, the special allowances given to paramilitary troops is lesser than those given to Army or other service soldiers.

RELAY HUNGER STRIKE AT JANTAR MANTAR NEW DELAY FOR DELAY IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OROP

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
 Dated: 27 June 2015
                             
 RELAY HUNGER STRIKE AT JANTAR MANTAR NEW DELAY FOR DELAY IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OROP

Dear Friends,

1.      Today is the 13th Day of the Relay Hunger Strike which is being carried out across the country at more than 50 locations. ESM at more locations are joining in from J&K to South & from West to the East of the country.

2.    Friends, OROP as a concept, as you all know, had been sanctioned by the Govt on 17 Feb 2014. It has been accepted in the parliament by two Govts, that is by UPA 2 & the NDA.
Koshyari Committee had strongly recommended implementation of OROP. Its report was placed in the Rajya Sabha on 19th Dec 2011.

3.    It is reiterated that there is only one approved definition of OROP and not many in circulation as being told to the people of India by the PM. Secondly, it is simple to execute and is not complicated as mentioned by the PM in “Mann Ki Baat”. In fact Draft Govt letter prepared by the service HQs on 22 Apr 2014 is waiting to be implemented.

4.    The complete proposal to implement the OROP has been prepared by the RM Mr. Manohar Parrikar in consultation with service HQ and other stake Holders and approved by him on 17 Feb 2015 for an amount of Rs 8300 crores.  The approved proposal had been sent to the Finance Minister on 17 Mar 2015 where it is lying with the FM and the bureaucrats of Finance Ministry.

5.     The PM has not ensured that his assurance to the Defence Fraternity to implement the OROP is executed earliest. The resentment amongst the Rank and File of Defence Fraternity has increased so much that a Maha Sangram Rally was held at Jantar Mantar and at 50 more location in country on 14 June 2015 followed by indefinite Relay Hunger Strike with effect for 15 June 2015.
We have also asked the Defence Fraternity to boycott all Govt functions till such time OROP is not implemented.

REQUEST . We at the United Front of Ex Servicemen request that senior officers ie Generals must take the lead as they have done while in service. We request that at least ELEVEN GENERAL OFFICERS SHOULD VOLUNTEER TO SIT ON RELAY HUNGER STRIKE at Jantar Mantar on 01 July 2015. May we request General Officers to volunteer for the same?

Retired Generals: PLEASE LEAD FROM THE FRONT.
  
With Regards,   
Yours Sincerely,
Maj Gen Satbir Singh, SM (Retd) 
Chairman IESM
