GET READY FOR INDEFINITE STRIKE
JCM Staff Side (NJCA) called upon all Central Government Employees to observe “BLACK DAY” by holding massive demonstration, wearing black badges, all over the country on 27th November 2015 to protest against the retrograde recommendations of the 7th CPC
The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) met on 20th November 2015. The meeting was unanimously rejected the minimum wage recommended by the 7 CPC along with majority of its recommendations which are totally against the interests of the employees at the lower level and heavily loaded in favour of the organized Gr A services.
The NJCA totally rejected the computation of minimum wages based on the 12-monthly average (ending on 1.7.2015) prices of essential commodities supplied by Labour Bureau at Shimla.
Recommendations such as “very good” CR for MACP, no increment after 20 years if one is not granted “very good’, reduction of pay of women employee to 80% in the 2nd year of CCL, abolition of small family norms allowance etc are not acceptable, said the NJCA in the press statement.
The NJCA has called upon all the Central Government employees to observe 27th November 2015 as BLACK DAY by wearing black badges and holding (lunch hour) demonstration at the work place. The call has been duly endorsed by the Confederation.
A communication from Com Shiva Gopal Mishra, Convener, NJCA on his meeting with Cabinet Secretary on 20th November 2015 is also enclosed.
All Branches and Units functioning under the banner of National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations are requested to take serious efforts to start a mass campaign on the near total anti employee recommendations of the 7 CPC – the ‘hera-pheri’ (jugglery) on the computation of the minimum wages, reduction in the wages of women employee who avail CCL, forcing the employees to go on voluntary retirement on completion of 20 years of service in the name of ‘inefficiency’, earmarking ‘very good’ for MACP, withdrawal of all types of short term advances like festival/ cycle/ LTC etc which have lasting effects on our pay packets and the service.
All Branches and Units are also requested to contact the local/state COCs/NJCAs and implement the programme with all seriousness. They are further requested to send compliance report on the observance of the programme to federation headquarters without fail.
So far as the recommendations of 7CPC in respect of Accounts and Audit employees and Officers are concerned, those are being informed separately.
With warm greetings,

38. GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS (GDS) OF THE POSTAL DEPARTMENT DEMAND FOR CIVIL SERVANTS STATUS REJECTED
Recommendation: - The committee carefully considered the demand for treating the Gramin Dak Sevaks as civil servants at par with other regular employees for all purposes, and noted the following:
(a) GDS are Extra-Departmental Agents recruited by Department of Posts to serve in rural areas.
(b) As per the Recruitment Rules the minimum educational qualification for recruitment to this post is class X.
(c) GDS are required to be on duty only for 4 to 5 hours a day under the terms and conditions of their service.
(d) The GDS are remunerated with Time Related continuity Allowance (TRCA) on the pattern of pay scales for regular Government employees plus DA on pro-rata basis.
(e) A GDS must have other means of income independent of his remuneration as a GDS to sustain himself and his family.
Government of India has so far held that GDS is outside the Civil Service of the Union and shall not claim to be at par with the Central Government Employees. The Supreme Court Judgment also states that GDS are only holder of Civil posts but not civilian employees. The Commission endorses this view and therefore has no recommendation with regard to GDS.
