THE GRAND MARCH TO PARLIAMENT
IN PURSUANCE OF THE 15 POINT CHARTER OF DEMANDS.
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 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.
MACP JOINT COMMITTEE MEETING AND DECISIONS.
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
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.
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.
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.
