Corrected version of Draft of JCM’s Memorandum to be submitted to 7th CPC

Corrected version of Draft of JCM’s Memorandum to be submitted to 7th CPC – Please give your valuable suggestions
PREFACE

The 6th CPC submitted its report in March 2008. It made major changes in the structure of pay scales by introducing the concept of Pay band and Grade Pay. Their recommendations were implemented with effect from 1.1.2006. There were plethora of anomalies, common as well as department specific. None of these anomalies were removed despite several rounds of discussions.

1.2. On 1.1.2011, the percentage of DA entitlement crossed over 50%. Since the erosion of the value of wages by that time had become enormous, the demand for merger of DA was raised by the employees. Some of them demanded setting up of the 7th CPC on the plea that the residency period of any wage structure must not exceed 5 years, especially in the background that the pay revision in most of the PSUs takes place at the interval of 5 years.They also pointed out that unlike the 5th CPC the 6th CPC had not suggested as to when the next wage revision must be attempted. The Government ignored those demands, despite well knowing that the inflation and abnormal price rise of food and other essential commodities had reduced the purchasing capacity of the government employees significantly.

1.3 Government refused to discuss these demands either bilaterally or at the forum of JCM. A section of the employees went on a day’s strike action, while the industrial workers in the Railways and Defence took the strike ballot. Climate of confrontation emerged. Taking note of these developments, Government in September 2013 announced the setting up of the 7th CPC. The Standing Council of JCM, National Council met on 24th October, 2013 to discuss various issues connected with the finalisation of the terms of reference of the Commission. The following suggestions were made for incorporation in the Terms of Reference (TOR):

The Commission should have a labour representative.
  • DA (the extent of percentage as on 1.1.2014) to be merged and treated as pay for all purposes.
  • To include Gramin Dak Sewaks within the ambit of 7th CPC.
  • To grant Interim Relief @ 25% of Pay + GP.
  • To ensure that the 7th CPC recommendation will be effective from 1.1.2014.
  • To ensure parity in pension for all pensioners as per the 5th CPC recommendation.
1.4 In spite of holding out assurance, no further discussions were held. The Government unilaterally notified the Terms of Reference. The Staff Side has now submitted a memorandum to the 7th Central Pay Commission on the twin issues, i.e. the need to grant interim relief and merger of Dearness Allowance.

1.5 It will be the endeavour of the Staff Side to bring about commonality of approach on all issues concerning the wages, allowances and other relevant matters, as was the case on the previous occasions. We are hopeful that all the Associations/ Federations/Unions of Central Government employees will endorse this memorandum, prepared by the Staff Side, National Council, JCM on their behalf. No doubt they will submit separate memoranda on department specific issues.

1.6 With this introduction, we submit this memorandum to the 7th CPC for their consideration.

Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS): About a reader’s Opinion

Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS): About a reader’s Opinion 

The Tamil newspaper Dinamalar recently published an opinion of one of its readers about Performance Related Incentive Scheme.

According to the write-up, based on the recommendations by the Sixth Pay Commission, the scheme had been introduced more than five years ago in select central government departments like atomic energy, space research and defence.

The scheme has already been implemented in atomic energy, space research and scientific and technical research departments under the name of “Performance Based Incentive Scheme”. As a result, there has been tremendous improvement in the productivity and output of these departments.

One can use the Right to Information Act to find out how the performance is evaluated and details regarding promotions. The annual performance appraisals submitted by the employees and the feedback and comments marked by their senior officials are now declassified and are accessible to all. The employee is evaluated based on the annual targets, and the amount of work accomplished that year.

Options have been created to constantly improve management practices. Still, there are issues that need to be addressed. There is fear that such target-based appraisals would encourage unhealthy and selfish result-obsessed-performances, and discourage team spirit and selfless acts aimed at general welfare.

In order to successfully implement these schemes, it is very important for the management to be proactive, benevolent, focused, with clear thinking process, and very impartial.

In other words, a mere rod isn’t sufficient to control an elephant. One also has to have a properly qualified and trained mahout. Similarly, mere schemes alone wouldn’t bring the required transformation in the central government departments. They also need excellent management teams to implement them successfully.
