NATIONAL COUNCIL (STAFF SIDE)
Joint Consultative Machinery
for Central Government Employees
13-C, Ferozshah Road, New Delhi-110001
Government of India,
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension,
Department of Personnel & Training,
Ref: Your letter No. 3/1/2015-JCA dated January 2015.
The views expressed in your letter under reference are well taken. The JCM Scheme was introduced in 1966 with the provision of holding periodical meetings to resolve the grievances of Central Govt. employees. But the Scheme has been kept in suspension in animation for the last ordinary meeting of NC/JCM was held on. 15.5.2010. Standing Committee much less the Anomaly Committee is no substitution to ordinary meeting. Since beginning of the introduction of the Scheme the meeting of the Standing Committee of NC/JCM was used to be held one/two days earlier to the ordinary meeting to iron out the progress of the outstanding items of ordinary meeting and the same procedure continued for years together. Unfortunately, of late, this procedure has been given good by.
The removal of anomaly of CPCs is not only the issues. The grievances of Central Govt. employees are piling up, the Govt. has been taking unilateral decisions in detriment for the interest of the Central Govt. employees. There are no attempts on the part of the Govt. to discuss those issues by holding ordinary meeting of the NC/JCM, causing serious resentment and anger amongst Central Govt. employees.
Vide this office letter under reference we have submitted the issues which are of serious consequences in the service life of Central Govt. employees.
You will appreciate that Staff Side NC/JCM cannot remain a silent spectator when grievances are not resolved and the Govt. continues to take unilateral decisions in detriment to the interest of Central Govt. employees.
However, meeting with Cabinet Secretary in Chair may be held to discuss the issues already submitted for arriving at a logical conclusion on the issues.
