NJCA MEETING held on 17th January 2017


Much awaited meeting of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) was held on 17th January 2017 at National Council (JCM) Staff-side office at New Delhi. Leaders of Railways, Defence, Postal and Confederation attended. Detailed discussions were held on the developments that took place after the deferment of the indefinite strike of 11th July 2016 and also on the totally negative attitude of the Government towards the 7th Pay Commission related issues of the Central Government Employees & Pensioners, including increase in Minimum Pay, Fitment formula, Allowances, Pensioner’s Option-I etc.

Unfortunately, there was no consensus regarding revival of the deferred indefinite strike. Hence no decision could be taken. Meeting ended with a decision to meet again after some days. In the meantime NJCA Chairman and Convener may try to meet the Cabinet Ministers who have given the assurances on 30th June 2016 to NJCA leaders.

As there is no immediate possibility for revival of the indefinite strike by NJCA, Confederation National Secretariat has decided to intensify the mobilization campaign and preparation for making the 16th March 2017 one day strike a grand success. All Affiliated Organizations and C-O-Cs are once again requested to make all –out efforts to ensure cent percent participation of employees in the strike. In addition to the campaign programme of National Secretariat members, each affiliated organization and C-O-Cs should chalk out their own separate campaign programme.  Please give wide publicity through local print / electronic media and social media like whatsapp, facebook etc.

No doubt, our strike will have a great impact in settling the demands and also in exposing the powers-that-be who betrayed the cause of 33 lakhs Central Govt Employees and 34 lakhs Pensioners.

Somebody should come forward to protest and also, if necessary, to suffer and Confederation is ready for it.

Let Confederation lead and others follow.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Meeting with the Staff Side(JCM) on the recommendations of the 7th CPC and their implementation.

We had our last meeting on 24th October, 2016, wherein, while concluding, it was assured that, you would consult the Secretary(Expenditure) and would hold next meeting shortly. It is quite unfortunate that, so far much time have passed and nothing has been heard from your end.

Inordinate delay in Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula is creating lots of problems, and the Central Government Employees are agitated because this issue had been agitating their minds since implementation of 7th CPC Report

You are, therefore, requested to call a meeting with the Staff Side(JCM) to discuss and resolve these issues at the earliest.

With Kind Regards!
Sincerely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

Dear Sir,
Sub: Meeting with the Committee on Allowances
The Staff Side, National Council(JCM) had a meeting with the Committee on Allowances on 1st September, 2016, wherein it was advised us to send the committee a detailed note. Subsequently, on 16th September, 2016 we sent a detailed note on the allowances to your good self with the hope that an the Committee on Allowances would consider the same, and in case of reservation, they would at least hold a meeting on the detailed memorandum submitted by the Staff Side(JCM).
Almost four months have passed without any outcome. All the Central Government Employees are quite agitated as well as are having mental agony because allowances of the VII CPC, have not been implemented.
You are therefore, requested to fix-up a meeting of the Committee on Allowances, at an earliest to resolve the issues placed in the memorandum of the Staff Side(JCM) on various allowances.
Here it is worth-mentioning that, the issues related to DoP&T were discussed by the Secretary(DoP&T) with the Staff Side on 25th October, 2016. The Staff Side is of firm option that, their should be resolution to the demands, and these Allowances should be implemented with effect from 01.01.2016. i.e, the date from which VII CPC has been implemented.
Sincerely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

7th CPC Hikes funding through Income Declaration Scheme -II: Report


Highlights  of Report:

1) The second income disclosure scheme (IDS) will help contain the 2017-18 fiscal deficit at 3.5 per cent of GDP,This should allow Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to hold the FY18 fiscal deficit at 3.5 per cent of GDP - same as FY17's - and at the same time fund the 7th Pay Commission.

2) The second income disclosure scheme (IDS-II) will fetch about Rs 1,000 billion (Rs 1 lakh crore)  / 0.7 per cent of GDP in additional taxes. 

Conclusion:  This means more funds available with  the Central Government from March 2017, thus the Central Government employees demands can be achieved provided the   Central Government accepts our demands in principle.

RBI Governor Statement on 7th CPC issues

                 Dr. Urjit R. Patel – Governor, Reserve Bank of India has said in a media conversation has made following observations in respect of Central Government employees which is published in Reserve Bank of India website: 

1) The disbursement of salaries and arrears under the 7th Pay Commission award has not been disruptive to inflation outcomes.

2) The extension of two months given to the Ministry of Finance to receive the notification on higher allowances under the Commission’s award, could push its fuller effect into the next financial year rather than this financial year.

The above statement by the Governor, Reserve Bank of India clearly indicates the following:
A)  The 7th CPC effect on the Government expenditure is minimal and doesn’t have any impact on the inflation and prices and there is scope for further improvement in fitment formula provided the Government is ready to consider the staff side demands.

B)   The allowances will be revised only after February 2017 and come into effect in next financial year.  

Only struggle is only the solution for the Central Government employees to get our main demands resolved such as revision of fitment formula and allowances.

                                                                                 Comradely yours
