Sub: Revision of pay structure in respect of certain categories of
Employees in the Department - Reg


This letter is in response to DAE Office Memorandum No. 32/1(2)/2008 –
SCS/326 (R) dated 10th November 2008. In that OM, it is stated that after due
consideration, the Department has decided to adopt pay structure of various
grades, posts in Group A, B, C & D in respect of certain categories as
contained in Part B of the Ministry of Finance Notification dated 29.08.2008.
In this connection, we would like to recall out that DAE has constituted a
committee under reference No. 32/1(2)2008 – SCS/R – 198 dated 12th
September 2008, to examine the implementation of the decisions of the
Government on the Sixth Central Pay Commission with regard to certain
common categories of employees as contained in Part – B of the First Schedule
of the Notification dated 29th August 2008 and has been directed to submit its
report within six weeks of time.
Even after the passing of stipulated period of directive, there has been
no disclosure whether the said committee had submitted its report for
consideration of the Department OR the OM dated 10th November is based on
that report.
Presuming that the OM dated 10th November is based on Dr. Suri
Committee recommendations on revision of Pay Structure of certain categories
of employees; we would like to bring up the following:
First up all, it is our firm opinion that none of the mentioned terms and
references in the said OM has been considered by the Committee while
arriving at its conclusions.

First clause of the terms of reference:

the committee should minutely examine the implications of
such recommendation with regard to vertical and horizontal
relativities among various cadres while examine the aspects and
formulate the proposal for implementing the recommendations
with regards to revision of certain common categories of
employees as contained in Part B of the notification
But the Committee has not done any thing to ensure and to maintain the
vertical and horizontal relativities among the various categories existing in the
Department. It can be seen that the Committee has not done the minute
examination to maintain the vertical & horizontal relativities among
the Cadre. It is pertinent to note here that the Nursing categories are the
backbone of Ministry of Health and the pursuance of the Health Ministry results
in the recommendation of higher pay scales for Nurses. The conscious decision
of the Govt of India in granting up graded pay scales to Nurses could not be
easily brushed aside by Dr. Suri Committee and to recommend upgraded Pay
structure to Nurses working in our hospitals and dispensaries.
While doing so, the bare minimum liability of the Committee to propose
parity so as to ensure horizontal relativity among the Technical Staff was not
embarked on?

Second clause in the terms of reference:

the committee should consider anomalies if any arising
while implementing the above mentioned Government
notification among the various Groups in DAE and to recommend
measures to correct the anomalies, without creating new
By failing to recommend parity in the existing pay structure for
Technical, administration, auxiliary and purchase & store staff – leave alone
DOS and other comparative Department, the committee created further

Third clause in the terms or reference:

the committee was asked to take abundant precaution that
the anomalies which arise in the past are not further exacerbated
while merger and up gradation of pay scales as well as to take
care for maintaining parity amongst the equivalent cadres to the
extent possible.
Not only, the committee failed to lessen the anomalies exists in
Technical, Administration, Auxiliary, Purchase & Store Staff, but it further
exacerbated by holding the merged pay structure for Rs5000 – 8000 and
Rs5500 – 9000. The committee adopted the novel method of hitting the two
birds in a single stone i.e. eliminating the higher grade pay for Auxiliary staff
denying the and the promotional hierarchy scale of administration, accounts,
purchase & store staff etc existing since 1996 after the implementation of the
Fifth Central Pay Commission. The promotional hierarchy scale was the long
drawn conflation in Cadre Review in the Department like DOS, Railways,
Defence, Income Tax CSIR (Department of Science & Technology) etc.

Fourth clause:

The committee to consider the representations received from the
employees and their recognized Unions/Associations
The Committee and its members not concerned to consider the
representations received from the employees and their recognized
unions/associations. Only three members out of the 7 members of the
Committee met the representatives of NFAEE on the same day the Federation
submitted its suggestions. Four top members of the Committee could not find
time to meet the representatives of the employees or felt - not required to
hear the views of the representatives of the employees.

Fifth and last clause:

Committee to consult similar Departments likes the Department
of Space for comparable categories of employees while arriving
at its conclusions.
Though the committee had in custody the copies of the orders issued by
the similar Department like DOS, it not even given attention of advocating the
pay structure recommended by such Departments for various categories. The
end result of such outlook landed our DAE employees to content with lesser
As the OM dated 10th November has not revised the Pay structure of
administration, accounts, auxiliary, and purchase & store staff, there is a
strong reaction of the employees that a deliberate attempt was foisted to
divide the interests of employees and playing again with the same old divide &
rule principle of British era.
The employees and workers of the Department under the banner of
National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees shown their protest through
out India immediately after the issue of the Office Memorandum dated 10th
November 2008 and demanded to ensure parity with the Pay Structure of
the employees of DOS for comparable categories as FIRST STEP and up
gradation & creation of promotional posts for Administration, Accounts ,
Purchase, Stores and Auxiliary categories as proposed by NFAEE in meeting
the similar formulations of Departments like DOS.
In the midst of discontent created by the non fulfillment of the function
assigned to Dr. Suri Committee, among the employees, it our earnest appeal
to direct the administrative authorities concerned to revisit the terms and
references and to ensure pay parity with DOS and also to revise the Pay
Structure in certain categories of employees of DAE.
We request you to give an early appointment to explain our justified
position in this regard to your offices in person.
Expecting your meeting at the earliest.

Yours faithfully,
Secretary General
