All National Sectt. Members:

Dear Comrade,

Kindly recall the discussions we had at our meeting held at the CHQ on 25th.  For paucity of time, we could not carry out the discussion for finalising the campaign programme on that day.  The house said that another meeting after the 26th programme might be convened to finalise the campaign programme for the impending strike action.  Most of the Comrades expressed the difficulty in undertaking another visit to Delhi in the month of August, 2012.  Taking into account that the strike action is slated for 12th December, 2012, and hardly four months are at our disposal and in view of the fact that October and November being festival months, we propose the following programme for your consideration.  Your views in the matter may please be communicated to the CHQ through e-mail latest by 10th August, 2012.  We are to deploy the Sectt. Members to different States.  The Secretary General will intimate the final decision after the feedback on 10th August, 2012.   Kindly ensure that you send in your views well before 9th August, 2012.
            Kindly indicate the changes you wish to make this programme and inform the undersigned as quickly as possible. 

            With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

K.K.N. Kutty

Circular No: 12/2012                                                                       Dated 28th July, 2012

Dear Comrades 


            The joint Committee set up by the National Anomaly Committee to consider the MACP related issues met on 27th July, 2012. The Staff Side was represented at the meeting by the following comrades:
Com. M. Raghaviah
Com. Umraomal Purohit
Com. S.K. Vyas
Com. C. Srikumar
Com. K.K.N. Kutty
Com. Shivgopal Misra
                           Com. Bhosle

The report prepared by the sub-committee after three rounds of discussions was reviewed at the meeting. The points that came up for discussion and the decisions taken are as under:

Grant of MACP in the promotional hierarchy: The Staff Side pointed out that the ACP which was in vogue till the advent of MACP had been on promotional hierarchy. In the name of improvement of the scheme, the Government cannot unilaterally change it, especially when the concerned employees do not consider it as advantageous. They suggested that the employees must be allowed to retain the ACP for the first two promotions and for the third promotion MACP can be extended. However, the Official Side said that it would not be possible to have any hybrid scheme. In fact, they added that the 6th CPC had suggested for two career progressions only and that too on grade pay hierarchy. The govt. had improved upon and therefore it was not possible for them to agree for the suggestion of the Staff Side. They also stated that the reason for bringing about grade pay hierarchy was to bring about uniformity in the scheme across the Departments as the promotional hierarchy varies from one department to another. They declined to consider the suggestion for promotional hierarchy based MACP.

The Staff Side then pointed that in the last meeting of the Committee, the Official Side taking into account the difficulties and disadvantages experienced by the employees in many departments which were presented by the Staff Side had agreed to consider department wise/cadre wise options. The Staff Side further pointed out that the suggestion of the Official Side would not go to resolve the issue. They said that option must be provide for each individual employee to choose either the ACP or MACP whichever is beneficial to him as is provided in the CCS (RP) Rules. The unilateral withdrawal of a benefit from an employee is not permissible. They also stated that the Official Side has not pointed out the difficulties in agreeing to this proposal. After some discussions, the Official Side said that they would re-examine the issue of individual option and will come up with their considered view at the next meeting of the NAC.

Counting 50% of service of the Temporary status/casual labourers for the purpose of MACP: In the light of the discussion at the meeting, the Official Side agreed to examine the matter.

Treatment of employees selected under LDCE Scheme and GDCE Scheme: The Official Side agreed to issue orders on the same lines as has been issued under the ACP Scheme. The Staff Side stated that wherever examination is the criterion for promotion/fast track promotion, the service rendered by such employees in the lower post must be ignored and such promotion should be treated as appointment and the promotion scheme to commence from the date of such appointment. This was not agreed to by the official side on the plea that such appointments are against promotion quota and therefore, they are to be considered as promotion only. The Staff Side them pointed out that this issue had been the subject matter of judicial consideration before the Tribunal and the Tribunal has given the decision in favour of the employees. The Official Side wanted a copy of the judgement to react to this.

Date of effect of the Scheme:  The Staff Side pointed out that the date of effect of MACP Scheme must be from 1.1.2006. The analogy of the 5th CPC has no application as ACP was introduced after discussion with the Staff Side on a later date. Since the Government issued the orders of the 6th CPC and the acceptance of the MACP with modification almost simultaneously, it should have been made effective from 1.1.2006. They also pointed out that the MACP is not an allowance to be made application from 1.9.2008. The Official Side pointed out that the benefit emanating from the MACP i.e. the third promotion was applicable to all existing employees who were in service after 1.9.2008. The Staff Side demanded that the benefit has been denied to those who retired between 1.1.2006 and 30.8.2008. The Official Side agreed to consider application of the new MACP with effect from 1.1.2006 for those who retired/died between 1.1.2006 and 30.8.2008.

Financial up-gradation under MACP in the case of staff who join another unit/organization on request. It was agreed at the last meeting that the services rendered in another recruiting unit/organization will be taken into account for counting service for promotion under MACP. The Staff Side however, pointed out that in many cases, the employees are compelled to seek reversion in order to be transferred to another recruiting unit. In their case, the promotion so earned at the present recruiting unit and which have been foregone is being counted as one promotion under MACP. The Official Side agreed to look into this matter and issue necessary clarificatory orders.

Stepping up of pay of senior incumbent with the junior as a consequence of ACP/MACP. The Official Side stated that in the light of the judgments delivered in the matter they will have the case looked into and necessary instructions issued. They also stated that certain instructions in the matter has already been issued, copy of which will be made available to the Staff Side.    

The bench mark question for promotion under MACP. The Official Side agreed to issue a clarificatory order stating that if the promotion is on seniority cum fitness basis, MACP will also be on seniority cum fitness basis.

There had been no discussions on other points incorporated in the report. The stand taken by the Official side in those matters remains unchanged. You may kindly access the report from the website of the Department of Personnel along with the relevant orders.
With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

Circular No: 12/2012                                                                                    Dated 28th July, 2012
Dear Comrades 


            The National Sectt. of the Confederation places on record its appreciation and gratitude for the tireless efforts of the State Committees and the affiliates in making the programme of 26th July, 2012, i.e. the March to Parliament a grand success. The gathering at Jantar Mantal had been magnificent and far higher than our expectation. As per the initial information supplied to us, every State has strived to mobilize maximum number of comrades to participate in the programme so as also was the endeavor of the affiliates. More than 20,000 comradesconverged at the Parliament Street with placards, banners, flags and wearing different colour caps. We anticipated quite an amount of difficulties and problems on 26th due to the decisions taken by the "Anna Hazare Committee against corruption" to organize indefinite dharna/fasting programme at the same venue. At the last minute, the Police authorities had to shift the spot at Jantar Mantar where we were to commence the procession. We could not get sufficient time to convey the changes made to our comrades, who had already started from different stations.

We also note with satisfaction that the leaders who had been entrusted to undertake the country wide campaign programme had done so with dedication and sincerity. As per the report we have at the CHQ, the campaign programme as chalked out had been carried out in all places except in Madhya Pradesh. The inability of the MP State Committee due to some unavoidable reasons had its adverse impact on mobilization of the comrades from that State. Similarly, we have been informed that the expected number of comrades had not reached from the North West Region, especially Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. Perhaps, we might have placed the target for these states unrealistically.

The procession commenced at 11.30 AM and the first contingent reached the rallying point at 12.15 PM. The meeting commenced immediately thereafter. Com. President, Working President and the Secretary General, National Federation of Postal Employees on behalf of the Confederation addressed the gathering. Com. Tapan Sen, Secretary General, CITU, Com, Amarjeet Kaur, Secretary AITUC, Com. Basudeb Acharya, MP and leader of the CPI(M) in the Parliament were the other speakers. The Secretary General while concluding the programme conveyed the decisions of the National Secretariat to go in for a serious campaign programme in the form of Mass Dharna, Demonstrations, Rally before the Governor's house etc. He also declared that the Central Government employees under the banner of the Confederation will be on a day's strike on 12th December, 2012. (12.12.12). Our next step must be to draw inspiration from the success of our March to Parliament programme and advance our movement to the impending strike action to create sufficient sanctions so that the Government will announce the setting up of the 7thCPC and hold meaningful negotiation for the settlement of the other demands in the charter. The National Secretariat will meet in the first week of August, 2012. Notice is being issued separately. All Sectt. , members are requested to attend the meeting.

We have published quite a number of photos of the rally in our Website. The Press Statement issued on 27thalong with the copy of the Memorandum to the Prime Minister has also been placed. Kindly use the explanatory memorandum for the intensive campaign you will have to undertake for the strike action.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

K.K.N. Kutty
Secretary General
