Subject: Up gradation of Grade pay of LDC and UDC in the Administrative Branch of Government of India offices.

Sir,
I am directed to refer to your letter No. 3/65/2013 dated 20.6.2013 on the above subject. This Division deals only with LDCs and UDCs of Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS). As the matter referred to in your letter pertains to LDCs and UDCs of Non-CSCS category, you are requested to take up the matter directly with the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure). Your letter No. 3/65/2013 dated 20.6.2013 in original is returned herewith.
Yours faithfully,

(K. Suresh Kumar)
Under Secretary to the Govt of India


General Secretary, AIAAS (NG)'s message thereon:-

Dear friends,
            As has already been informed, the Letter sent to the PM for revision of Grade pay of LDC & UDC by us has been forwarded to JCA, by the DoPT. Accordingly, a letter seeking the status of action taken from the Deputy Secretary, JCA was prepared but before sending the same to him,  the case has received back from the DoP&T wherein it was directed us to take up the matter directly with the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure). The copy of the letter is posted below:

            It is to be noted that while forwarding the case to JCA, the DoPT has observed the LDC & UDC case is related to anomaly and the JCA is the authority to deal the cases of anomaly. An agenda item pertains to the upgradation of the grade pay of the LDC and UDC is pending for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee and the JCA has to convene the meeting for the same. And thus the case should have been put up to National Anomaly Committee. But, now the case is received from the DoPT and not from the JCA and the ground on which the case is returned to the DoPT is not known.

            Since the DoPT has asked us to take up the matter with Ministry of Finance it would be sent. But, we cannot say the action to be taken by the MoF on this most genuine anomaly in the wake of the announcement of 7th Pay Commission/involvement of expenditure. And yet, we have hope, the MoF would suggest something positive. In case it is not happened, as has been suggesting by the readers, it is a case fit to move in the Principle bench of the CAT, I think.

            Suggestions on future action on the matter from the readers are requested please.

With warm regards

Sincerely Yours

(TKR Pillai)
General Secretary
