Sub: Adhoc Bonus – Reg

Sir,

Please refer our earlier No. dated 14th September 2009 regarding the Office Memorandum issued by Ministry of Finance on 28th August 2009 to release Adhoc Bonus to all Group B, C, D non gazetted Government employees who are not eligible for Productivity Linked Bonus/Incentive for the year 2008 – 2009.

DAE has not been endorsed the said OM and given instruction to the units to release the Adhoc Bonus till date whereas in Department of Space has been released the Adhoc Bonus to the entitled employees.

Similarly it is understood that all Industrial units under DAE also been issued Productivity Linked Bonus/ Incentive for the year 2008 – 09.

The Government introduced the Adhoc Bonus to the employees who all are not entitled the Productivity Linked Bonus.

Under this circumstance denial of Adhoc Bonus to a section of employees is injustice and therefore the employees of various DAE units will show there protest by wearing badges and organizing Protest meeting on 24th September 2009.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully,

Sub: Non Grant of ADHOC BONUS - Reg.
Sir,

Please refer our earlier Letter No. nfaee/sg/09/160 dated 22.09.2009 as well as the letter dated 14.09.2009 on the subject captioned. It is very unfortunate to note here that the Department is ignoring the feelings of the employees and attempting to bring in a new path of rigid move to suppress the employees’ right and deny the equitable demand of adhoc bonus. Adhoc Bonus was made applicable to Central Government Employees whom are not eligible for Productivity Linked Bonus based on the ruling of Supreme Court terming the Bonus as “DEFFERRED WAGES” that too after a continuous struggle of since early seventies.

The Central government employees were awarded Adhoc Bonus by the Ministry of Finance every year in lieu of the bonus paid on the basis of profits on production or productivity and for matters connected therein to the employees who are covered under Bonus Act. Since then in all Departments certain section of employees are covered under Productivity Linked Bonus/Incentive and other section is covered under Adhoc Bonus. In short if a section of employees are awarded Productivity Linked Bonus, other section is entitled to get Adhoc Bonus as declared by the Ministry of Finance/Department of Expenditure.

In such a back ground, the employees of DAE working in R&D establishments as well as in the service organizations are entitled to get the Adhoc Bonus as declared by the Department of Expenditure vide their OM dated 28th August 2009 since the industrial workers of the Department have been given Productivity Linked Bonus for the year 2008 –2009.

More over Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and Department of Space (DOS) are coming under the same ministry, i.e. under none other than the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, and categorized as identical Department and the employees of these Departments are governed by similar service conditions. It is the fact that DOS has already disbursed Adhoc Bonus for the year 2008 - 2009 to the employees as per the OM issued by the Department of Expenditure.

It is distressing to note here that it has become an everyday affair in DAE to deny/ delay the implementation of the facilities extended to the employees by the Government of India to begin with and infuriate the employees. We would like to submit that this disagreeable approach in no way will facilitate to sustain a good work culture and induce the employees to contradict against such prejudiced stance.

NFAEE feverishly request the Department to reconsider the stand taken on the disbursement of Adhoc Bonus to the eligible employees for the year 2008 – 2009 and release the adhoc bonus prior to DEEPAVALI and to light up the confidence level of the employees.

NFAEE further appeal you to grant an early appointment to discuss the non issue of Adhoc Bonus other important issues which are mentioned in our earlier letters.

Anticipating a call from your office at the earliest.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

Sub: Patient Care Allowance - Reg

Dear Comrade,

While issuing the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008, Government clarified that the recommendation of the Sixth Central Pay Commission (SCPC) regarding the replacement of Patient Care Allowance with Insurance Scheme shall be implemented after consultation with the Staff side and till such time the PCA/HPCA shall be continued.

There after the Ministry of Health given assurance to the employees of CGHS that the government will consult the employees before taking any decision regarding the replacement of PCA/HPCA with Insurance Scheme.

In the meantime it is understood that the Ministry concerned insisted various Departments to stop the payment of PCA/HPCA without holding discussion either at National Council (JCM) or standing Committee (JCM). Accordingly certain Departments including DAE has been stopped the payment

This has resulted in serious resentment among the para medical staff who all are entitled for PCA/HPCA.

You are requested to take up the matter with the concerned ministry to ensure the continuation of PCA/HPCA as the most of the employees are against the Insurance Scheme

With fraternal greetings

Comradely yours,

Jayaraj.K.V
Secretary General

Sub: Patient Care Allowance – Reg

Sir,

DAE vide OM No. 2/1(5)/2008 –SCS/4546 dated 23rd October 2009 withdrew the Patient Care Allowance given to Group C & D employees working in the Medical Division/Section of various DAE units and declared that Introduced Risk Insurance.

The Patient Care Allowance (in short PCA) which was granted to the employees after prolonged discussions and negotiations by the DOPT and Ministry Health. Based on the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare OM. No. B- 11011/1/90 – CGHS (P) dated 10th July 1990, our Department introduced Patient Care Allowance after a continuous debate in the Departmental Council for almost 7 years. PCA has been continued at the rates revised from time to time for more than 20 years is sought to be withdrawn from 1.4.2009 to be replaced by an RISK INSURANCE SCHEME.

In this connection, your kind attention is invited on the demand of implementation of RISK ALLOWANCE allowed by Government of India to the employees working in the Cosmetic maintenance, the say was that the name of “RISK” will give wrong indication outside and could not be conceded. Whereas interestingly Risk Insurance Scheme is going to be implemented and even the details are not made known to the staff side till date.

PCA was evolved after merger of dietary allowance, Night Weightage Allowance and Risk Allowance. Whereas the proposed insurance cover has only substituted the risk allowance. The replacement of an allowance by an insurance scheme is not only conceptually incorrect but also not acceptable to the staff side as it would result in the loss of emoluments and reduction in wages.

It is also pertinent to note here that while the Delhi Government has entered into discussion with the leaders of the striking employees of the hospitals run by the Delhi Municipal Corporation and the Government of Delhi, settlement was reached with the representatives of the hospital employees of institutions run by MCD and the Delhi State Government and the Delhi State Government agreed to double the PCA in disagreement with the government of India notification in this regard.

We further would like to inform you that the meeting of the Departmental Council (JCM) of Ministry of Railways was held on 27-28.08.2009 and the issue of Patient Care Allowance was discussed. The outcome of the meeting is as follows:-

Item No.34/99:

Grant of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance to Group-C & D employees (non-ministerial) in railway hospitals and dispensaries –

Official Side (Railway Board) agreed that the Patient Care Allowance would be continued till such time the matter of Risk Insurance is decided.

It is also understood that the nodal Ministry (Ministry of Health/CGHS) has not withdrawn the Patient Care Allowance till date.

Whereas in DAE, the Department asked the views of the Staff side through a letter to the Secretary Staff Side for which the Staff side Secretary after consulting all DC Members intimated that the PCA should be continued and as a second benefit Risk Insurance may be introduced to the Group C & D hospital/dispensary staff. Thereafter no discussion was hold by the DAE authorities either with the staff side of DAE Departmental Council (JCM) or with NFAEE.

Under this situation DAE supposed to present the consideration of calling the Staff side leaders/NFAEE right away and have meaningful exchange of views and explore an understanding as done in the case of Ministry of Railways. Also it is the responsibility of the Department to convey the views expressed by NFAEE/Staff Side DAE Departmental Council (JCM) to the nodal Ministry/DoPT

It is therefore request you to give necessary instruction to the officer concerned to continue the Patient Care Allowance Till such time of Government of India and the Nodal Ministry took concrete stand in this subject matter. We also request you to convey the views of the employees to continue the PCA to all eligible employees and not convert it into Risk Insurance.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

Jayaraj.K.V
Secretary General
