UTTARAKHAND TRAGEDY

CONFEDERATION APPEALS TO ALL CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES TO DONATE ONE DAY WAGES TO PRIME MINISTER’S RELIEF FUND
       Excessive and unexpected rainfall resulting in furious floods has battered beyond measure, the Himalayan hill state of Uttarakhand.  Whole villages, stretches of roads and communication links have been affected.  More than 1000 persons met with tragic death.  Thousands, including those from other parts of the country who were undertaking pilgrimages to religiously significant temples in the region, remain stranded.  Hundreds of houses and buildings along the banks of Alakananda and the Bhagirathi has been swept away in Rudraprayag district alone.  Thousands have become homeless.
      As the magnitude of the tragedy caused in Uttarakhand continues to unfold, Prime Minister Sri. Manmohan Singh has issued an appeal for generous donations to support the victims who have suffered extensive devastation.  Prime Minister appealed that - “At this moment, the affected people need our help to tide over the calamity that has fallen upon them, to survive and to rebuild their lives.  I request all citizens of India to stand with our distressed fellow countrymen, and actively participate in the national effort to support them at this difficult time”.
               It is needless to say that the Central Govt. Employees have an urgent and important role to play in helping the flood victims and we shall have to rise upto the occasion, as in the past when such national calamities occurred.  The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers calls upon the entireity of Central Govt. Employees to donate one day’s salary to the Prime Minister Relief Fund and extend our full support to the flood victims to rebuild their lives.
          All the Affiliates of the Confederation, State Committees (C-O-Cs) and CHQ Office bearers are requested to make maximum efforts to collect and remit the donations to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund.

Revision of OTA rate case filled at CAT Madras Bench dismissed.


One of the service Association has filed CAT case in Madras Bench in connection with the revision of Overtime Allowance.  

Hon’ble CAT Madras Bench in their judgement dated 9th April 2013 stated that ''prior to 5th CPC, all Non-Gazetted employees in receipt of monthly basic pay of upto Rs. 2200/- were entitled to OTA for performing duties beyond the designated working hours. The 5th CPC had recommended abolition of OTA for all categories except the Staff Car Driver, Operational Staff and Industrial employees. But, it recommended that the staff deployed on weekly off days should be given a compensatory leave rather than any cash compensation in the form of OTA or otherwise. However, the said recommendations were not accepted and status-quo was maintained as per the recommendations of the 4th CPC. It is also seen that the rate of OTA fixed and the ceiling by the Nodal Ministry viz. Department of Personnel and Training, consequent on the recommendation of 4th CPC have not been revised by the said Ministry. As rightly contended by the respondents, unless the said Nodal Ministry approves the proposal sent by the Department of Posts for revision of OTA rate, they are not in position to revise the OTA rates on its own and it is a policy decision of the Government.  In other words, the Department Posts cannot take an independent decision on the issue raised by the respondents".

No decision on central staff retirement age on cabinet meeting

No decision on central staff retirement age on cabinet meeting

Though a number of newspapers and websites did spread the news that cabinet is likely to enhance central employees' retirement age by two years today, nothing of this kind has been announced after the cabinet meeting held on today, 04.06.2013.
As per information available with us, the Govt. has already taken in principle decision to extend the service for two more years and DOPT has begun to work to implement the same.
The formal announcement is yet to be made but will be within this year definitely.
