Confederation – No positive outcome in 7th CPC Standing Committee Meeting..
MEETING WITH SENIOR OFFICERS COMMITTEE
As notified earlier, the meeting with the senior officers Committee was held on 21.07.2017. The Committee was represented by Additional Secretary, Expenditure (Chairman), Joint Secretary (Implementation Cell), Joint Secretary (Personnel) and Joint Secretary (DOP&T). Staff Side was represented by all 13 Members, Standing Committee, National Council JCM.
Even though no specific agenda was notified, the staff side expected that the Committee will hold serious discussion on the demand of Increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula as assured by group of Ministers on 30.06.2016. But the Committee just briefed the decision of the Govt. on Allowances. Staff side raised the issue of Minimum Pay and fitment formula and demanded an early decision as per the assurance given by the Cabinet Ministers. Along with that staff side also raised various issues arising out of implementation of govt. decisions on allowances. As usual the meeting ended without any positive outcome.
