Sub: Follow up action of the meeting held on 14th September 2010
We would like to draw your kind attention towards the meeting we had with you on 14th September 2010 and the minutes of decisions thereof.
It was decided in the said meeting to form a small committee to analyze the pay structure chosen by DAE on the recommendation of the Sixth Central Pay Commission (SCPC) as the same created anomaly with other comparable scientific Departments. Even after lapses of 4 months the committee has not been constituted.
In the meanwhile we had an opportunity to appear before the Norms Committee constituted by the Trombay Council BARC, Wherein, we were asked to present our views on norms for career progression of technical staff, attendant, etc.
We pleaded with the Norms Committee that the de-merger of the pre revised scales of Rs.5000 – 8000 and Rs.5500 – 9000 was the most to enable and to maintain the horizontal relativity with other categories existing in this department –importantly this was the reference matter for Dr. Suri Committee. The action initiated by the Department to over come the merged pay scale has been further brought financial losses as well as career degradation comparing with other Departments.
Like wise, the career progression and the financial up gradation of ‘Attendant”, the erstwhile Group D employees also been put in stagnated position and the same also been again referred to norms committee. The analogy adopted by the DoPT while formulating MACP and also specific enabling order considering their past service into account for financial up gradation/promotion as the spend service was to be deemed to be the service in the present grade pay. If the yardstick prescribed by DOPT was adopted by DAE, the spent service varying from to 20 to 30 years in majority of the cases by the ‘Attendant’ would have been entitled for added financial up gradation with the promotion norms in vogue as on 1.1.2006 – leave alone the new norms.
The norms committee members expressed that these points to be looked into by the Department or the proposed committee and is not coming under the purview of the Norms Committee.
In the meantime, the office bearers of AEW&S Union, BARC taken up these matters with the Director, BARC in their meeting and the Director too stated that this is the subject matter for the joint committee to be constituted by DAE.
We feel that without addressing the problem of de-merger of pay structure for technical staff and the financial up gradation of Attendants, the norms committee may again meddling with the residential period of the existing categories of scientific, technical and attendants.
If the Norms Committee finalized its recommendation without considering this burning issue, it may further lead to wrongness in the forthcoming days.
Hence we request you to kindly treat the matter is urgent in nature and direct the officials concerned to set right the issues brought in by bilateral discussion with the office bearers of NFAEE at the earliest possible time.
Side by side constitution of the committee as agreed upon in the meeting also to be constituted at once.
