Sub: Seeking an appointment for a meeting to present views
on pending issues – Reg.
The Office bearers of Mumbai based unions/associations of DAE units would like to meet you in person to express their concern on delay for decision on issues mentioned below and to present the views of the employees:
· Cadre Review of Administrative, Accounts & Auxiliary Staff:
o The exercise to review the Cadre and restructure was being initiated during the period of Dr. S. Banerjee, the then Chairman AEC in the year 2012. Till the process has not been completed and the implementation of 7th CPC recommendation is likely to be started any time after the assembly election in 5 states.
o Though it was assured to implement the Cadre from 1st January 2015, till the date it has not been finalized. We would like to present the views of the employees on Cadre Review in person
· Conversion of CPF to GPF of a section of employees:
o In the various meeting held at the level of Chairman, AEC, Additional Secretary it was assured to take up the issue of conversion from CPF to GPF of few employees who all are still in CPF at Department level and a sincere move was initiated during the tenure of the Dr. R.K. Sinha and Dr. C.B. Venkatramana, the then Chairman AEC and the Additional Secretary, respectively. Recently it is understood that the attempt was dropped and proposed to defer the matter to DoPT. There are two different cases – one pertaining to Administrative, Accounts, Purchase & Stores and Auxiliary staff and the other one particularly related to Technical Staff
o Since the matter has been referred earlier also to DoPT and rejected, the settlement at DPT level will be impossible, we feel the matter should try to be settle at DAE level only.
· Revision of Overtime Allowance:
o The Overtime Allowance for Non – Industrial units has not been revised since 1996. The issue was discussing in the department for the last 20 years in various forum such as with the Chairman, AEC, Additional Secretary, Director BARC, DAD departmental Council meeting, Bilateral discussion with the Federation, etc. In all the meeting the Department expressed the sympathetic attitude on demand but expressed their inability to take decision as the Revision of OTA was to be done by the nodal ministry.
o Luckily in a recent meeting held with the Jt. Secretary (I&M) who is the Nodal Officer for DAE to deal the matters with the Implementation Cell of Department of Expenditure, the Controller BARC and the CAO (P) BARC opined that the no need to refer the matter pertaining to Overtime Allowance to the Government as the Department is empowered to take a decision at DAE level while discussing the recommendation on OTA by of 7th CPC.
o Since the Department realized that the issue of OTA can be resolve at DAE level immediate action should be initiated to revise the OTA in w time bound manner.
NFAEE request you to give us an early appointment present the above mentioned matters to you and share the concern of the employees as the issues are delay without any decision for years.
