Demand to removal of stagnation in services and timely promotions – Central Secretariat Services Forum

Central Secretariat employees demand timely promotions

Central Secretariat employees have demanded removal of stagnation in Services and facilitation of timely promotions. A deputation of “Central Secretariat Services Forum” led by its Convenor, Shri D.N.Sahoo called on Dr Jitendra Singh, Minister of State Personnel, here today and thanked him for his positive and cooperative response to all their grievances in the past one year and expressed the hope that he would also find a way out to overcome the anomaly in Services which has been adversely affecting them for the last several years. They also handed over a memorandum to him.

Dr Jitendra Singh assured that the problems and grievances faced by the employees will certainly be resolved and observed that the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) had, on his instructions, sent a favourable proposal in support of their demands but there were certain technical queries from the Finance Ministry which are also in the process of being replied.

Dr Jitendra Singh said the Modi Government took over with a pledge for ‘maximum Governance, minimum Government’ and adopted several radical measures to simplify governance and provide a comfortable and work-friendly environment for its officials. It is in the same spirit that the officials of different Secretariat Services are also intended to be made comfortable and achieve a sense of esteem through timely promotion and befitting status in their service career, he added.

As clarified vide the OM dated 1st September, 2008, the competent authority for granting permission will be as per instructions issued by the Cadre Authority/administrative Ministry/Department. In the absence of any such instructions, it is the leave sanctioning authority. In case due to specific nature of work in a Department, administrative exigencies, or some adverse factors against the Government servant etc., it is not expedient to grant permission to the Government servant, such decision for refusal should not be taken below the level of Head of Department. It may be ensure,: that the decisions are conveyed to the Government servants within 21 days of receipt of complete application to the competent authority. Any lacunae in the application should be brought to the notice of the Government servant within one week of the receipt of the application. In the event of failure on the part of the competent authority to communicate its decision to the Government employee concerned with 21 days of receipt of the application, the employee concerned shall be free to assume that permission has been granted to him.
3. If in case some modifications are considered necessary due to specialised nature of work handled by any organisation, changes may be made with the approval of this Department.

Recruitment of Trade Apprentice in Ordnance Factories – BPMS writes to OFB

The Director (IR),

Subject: Recruitment of Industrial Employees from Ex-Trade Apprentice of Ord Fys.
Reference: OFB ID No. 570/Per/I/Pt.54/294/Vol.IV, dated 24.06.2015
Respected Sir,
With due regards, it is submitted that Sub Section (1) of Section 22 of the Apprentice Act,
1961 has been amended and notified in Gazette of India on 05.12.2014 which states as under:-
“Every employer shall formulate its own policy for recruiting any apprentice who has completed the period of apprenticeship training in his establishment”.
In such circumstances, OFB should formulate its policy for giving preference to its own extrade apprentices in recruitment of Semi Skilled (Tradesman) in Ord Fys in following manner :-
1. The factories shall maintain the batch wise / trade wise seniority list of ex-trade apprentices of their own factory. Marks obtained in the examination for National Apprenticeship Certificate should be determining factor of intra batch/trade wise seniority. As and when vacancies arise and factories are permitted to make direct induction, in the first instance, ex-trade apprentices of their own factories will be considered for recruitment.
Only trade test would be conducted to ascertain whether the ex-trade apprentice is fit for the employment.
2. If the factory fails to meet the requirement of candidates for recruitment from the list of their ex-trade apprentices maintained either because of exhausting the list or because of the unsuitability / ineligibility of the ex-trade apprentices in the list, the factory may notify such number of vacancies as required by them to the Employment Exchange.
3. Simultaneously, the factory will have to notify the vacancies in Newspapers / Employment News. While notifying the vacancies to the Employment Exchange or in the Newspaper a mention will be made to the effect that ex-trade apprentices of Ord Fys would be given preference in recruitment.
Kindly consider the above view in correct perspective and take appropriate action so that extrade apprentices of Ord Fys may be preferred in the recruitment of Semi Skilled (Tradesman) in OFB organization.
Thanking you.
Sincerely yours

Subject: Relaxation of Age in recruitment of Industrial Employees.
Respected Sir,
With due regards, it is submitted that applications from eligible citizens of India are being invited by Ordnance & Ordnance Equipment Factories for filling up the vacancies in Group ‘C’ Industrial Employees (IEs) in the Pay Band of Rs. 5200 – 20200, Grade Pay of Rs. 1800/- plus allowances as admissible to Central Government employees. As per Recruitment Rules (SRO) the age of the candidates should be between 18 to 32 years and as per OFB/MOD instructions age relaxation is granted for Ex-Trade Apprentices of Indian Ordnance Factories the period for which they had undergone training under the Apprentices Act, 1961.
Due to above relaxation, an Ex-Trade Apprentice of general category of Ord Fy gets 03 yrs age relaxation and he is eligible to apply for the Semi Skilled post upto the age of 35 (32 + 03) yrs, whereas a general candidate after passing National Trade Certificate (NTC) from any ITI undertakes his Apprenticeship of 01 year from any Ord Fys may get age relaxation of 01 year and he is eligible to apply for the same post upto the age of 33 (32+01) years only. This discrimination of age relaxation is causing discontentment amongst the Ex-Trade Apprentices of Ord Fys.
Therefore, you are requested to issue necessary instructions regarding age relaxation for recruitment of Semi-Skilled so that Ex-Trade Apprentices whether they have undergone entire apprenticeship of 03 yrs in Ord Fys or they have undergone apprenticeship of 01 year in Ord Fys after passing 02 yrs NTC from ITI may be equally benefitted and age relaxation may be granted for the period of training obtained from ITI plus apprenticeship in Ord Fys, i.e., eligible upto the age of 32 + 2+1= 35 yrs.
Thanking you.

रेलवे में नौकरी कर रहे लोगों के लिए कैट का बड़ा फरमान RAILWAY KE PORMOTION ME KOI RESERVATION NAHI - CAT

केंद्रीय प्रशासनिक ट्रिब्यूनल (कैट) ने रेलवे में तकनीकी कैडर के पुनर्गठन में आरक्षित वर्ग को प्रमोशन देने के मामले में आरक्षण को दरकिनार कर केवल वरिष्ठता के आधार पर प्रमोशन देने की बात कही है। ट्रिब्यूनल ने कहा कि प्रमोशन में कोई रिजर्वेशन लागू न हो।

कैट की एक खंडपीठ ने मंगलवार को रेलवे के डीजल लोकोमोटिव वर्क्स में डीजल टेक्नीशियन ग्रेड-1 के पद पर कार्यरत 39 कर्मचारियों की ओर से दायर एक याचिका के संबंध में यह फैसला सुनाया। उन्होंने रेलवे के उस फैसले को कैट में चुनौती दी थी, जिसमें कैडर का पुनर्गठन करते हुए एससी/एसटी कोटे के कर्मचारियों को प्रमोशन में लाभ पहुंचाया गया था।

इन कर्मियों ने रिजर्व कैटेगरी के कर्मचारियों को प्रमोट कर दिए जा रहे लाभ को चुनौती देते हुए याचिका दायर की थी। इसमें कहा गया था कि यह कैडर में 50 प्रतिशत से ज्यादा की रिजर्वेशन पा रहे हैं। याचिकाकर्ताओं के मुताबिक रेलवे के पास ऐसा कोई डाटा नहीं है, जिसके मुताबिक सही रूप से रिजर्व कैटेगरी को प्रमोशन का लाभ मिले।

रेलवे के गुरपिंदर सिंह समेत अन्य टेक्नीशियनों ने भारत सरकार, डीजल लोकोमोटिव वर्क्स पटियाला के सीएओ के खिलाफ अर्जी दायर की थी।

MINISTER OF STATE FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EMPOWERMENT
(SHRI KISHAN PAL GURJAR)
(a) to (c): An Expert Committee set up in 1993 recommended for income criteria of Rs. 1 lakh per annum. The Expert Committee observed that since the Rupee value is bound to undergo change, the income criteria in terms of Rupees will accordingly stand modified with the change in value. The modification exercise may, normally speaking, be undertaken in every three years but if the situation demands, an interregnum may be less.
Keeping in view the recommendations of the Expert Committee, Government of India decided to constitute a Review Committee to consider the issue of modification of income criteria and circulated a Cabinet Note in March, 1999. The Cabinet approved constituting the Review Committee in its meeting on 27.11.2001. With the approval of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, the work relating to review the income criteria to exclude cream layer was entrusted to the National Commission for Backward Classes. The National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) submitted its report in January, 2004. The income criteria were revised on 9.3.2004. Hence, there was no delay in effecting the first revision of income criteria. NCBC was requested to review in December, 2007 and they submitted their report in July, 2008. After inter-ministerial consultation and the approval of Cabinet, the second revision was effected in October, 2008. Again, in July 2011, NCBC was requested to review the same and they submitted a report in September, 2011. The Cabinet approved on 16.05.2013 the revision of income criteria from 4.5 lakhs to 6.00 lakhs and, accordingly the 3rd revision was effected w.e.f. 16.05.2013.
(d) & (e): The recommendation of the National Commission for Backward Classes in this regard was received and the same has been sent to Department of Personnel & Training.

(i) The Trade Unions were of the view that all the ceilings under the payment of Bonus Act. 1965 i.e. eligibility ceiling, calculation ceiling and maximum percent of bonus payable need to be removed. They further expressed that they would like to reiterate the stand taken by them in the tripartite meeting held on 20 October, 2014.

(ii) The Employers, representatives were of the view that total removal of various ceilings may lead to spurt in industrial relation issues.

रामपुर 

अधिकारी विकास कार्यों को लेकर कितने गंभीर हैं, इसका अंदाजा इसी बात से लगाया जा सकता है कि प्रमुख सचिव की मीटिंग में एक अधिकारी अपने मोबाइल पर ऐप डाउनलोड करने में लगे रहे। इस दौरान उनकी फोटो भी कैमरे में कैद हो गई । 

बुधवार को प्रमुख सचिव होमगार्ड भूपेंद्र सिंह कलेक्ट्रेट सभागार में अफसरों के संग मिलकर विकास कार्यों की समीक्षा कर रहे थे। इस दौरान कुछ अफसर अपने मोबाइल पर उंगलियां थिरकाते रहे। पिछड़ा वर्ग कल्याण अधिकारी अभिशेख कुमार तो मोबाइल पर सुहागरात ऐप डाउनलोड कर रहे थे। जब वो ऐप डाउनलोड कर रहे थे तो उन पर एक कैमरे वाले की नजर पड़ गई और उनकी तस्वीर कैद हो गई। इस मामले को लेकर जब रामपुर के जिलाधिकारी से बात की गई तो उन्होंने कहा कि उनकी जानकारी में भी यह खबर आई है। उन्होंने सीडीओ को पूरे प्रकरण की जांच के निर्देश दे दिए हैं। मामला नगर विकास मंत्री आजम खां के क्षेत्र का है।
