Subject: Prior Intimation for Contempt Petition: Grant of Night Duty Allowance on the basis of Actual Salary – Implementation of Courts Judgements.

Respected Sir / Madam,

With due regards, it is submitted that the issue of payment of Night Duty Allowance based on actual salary instead of notional pay of Rs.2200/- was under consideration in the Ministry of Defence consequent of Courts judgments. Hon’ble CAT Jodhpur has already passed the following directions in OA No 34/2008 dated 5.11.2009:

(i) The Night Duty Allowance shall be paid to the applicants and the similarly situated persons on the basis of the actual salary after taking out the pay
structure determinants like HRA etc., which have no actual relation to the work performed and on the basis of this pay, thus arrived at, Night Duty Allowance is payable to the applicants.

(ii) The applicants are entitled to such arrears as is applicable to them from April 2007 on the basis of actual pay thus arrived at without any interest if the amount is calculated and arrears paid to them from six months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order and thereafter with 6% interest.

(iii) The O.A is allowed to the extent as aforesaid. No order as to costs It is learnt that vide I.D. No. 17(4)/2012/D (Civ-II), dated 04.01.2013 MOD had asked for some data from all the Dtes/Hqrs and since then the matter was pending. Meanwhile, O.A. No. 2017/2014 was filed in CAT Mumbai on 17th January, 2014 as ‘All Employees of Ordnance Factory Ambajhari, Nagpur (1598 applicants) versus Union of India through Secretary, Min of Defence’ for payment of Night Duty Allowance on the basis of actual salary. The O.A. was disposed of at the admission stage with the directive to consider the said representations of the applicants in the light of the judgement passed by Jodhpur within 12 weeks. Aggrieved by the non-compliance of the above directive, Contempt Petition (CP No.200/2014 Shri Arvind Girija Singh & Ors versus UOI & Ors.) was filed and the subject CP was heard on 23.02.2015 and after hearing both sides Hon’ble CAT Mumbai disposed of the contempt petition with an order to grant night duty allowance as per revised rate within 03 months from the date of receiving the order.

As the period granted by the Hon’ble CAT is going to expire on 23.05.2015, all the concerned authorities are requested to take appropriate action so that Night Duty Allowance may be paid on the actual salary as per CAT directive to the petitioners as well as nonpetitioner, failing which by this federation BPMS will be compelled to file Contempt Petition.
Thanking you.
Sincerely yours
(M. P. SINGH)

– With due regards, to bring to your kind notice that due to lethargic attitude of the concerned authorities thousands of Central Government Civilian

employees are being compelled to approach the judicial forums to redress the service matters whereas the courts are already overloaded and several lakhs of litigants are waiting for judgment for decades.

Ironically, with the approval of Additional Secretary (R), vide MOD ID No. 18 (2)/2014-D(JCM), dated 09.12.2014, all the concerned have been directed that wherever feasible, the grievances of the similarly placed employees about service matters shall be resolved through administrative channels which would help in reducing unnecessary litigation as well as resentment amongst employees.

Appointment on compassionate grounds - Clarifications by Railway Board

Appointment on compassionate grounds - Clarifications by Railway Board

New Delhi, dt.23.04.2015
The General Manager(P),
All Indian Railways
Production Units.
Sub: Appointment on compassionate grounds - Clarifications - regarding.
Attention is invited to this Ministry’s letter of even number dated 14.092012 issued under RBE No. 102/2012. Some of the Zonal Railways have sought clarification as regards to the allowances and benefits allowed to a trainee under Board’s letter dated 14.09.2012(RBE No. 102/2012) should be given to a trainee appointed against a working‘post where it is mandatory for persons being appointed to clear the entire training period before joining a working post.

The matter has been examined in Board’s office and it is clarified that in terms of one of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission, as accepted by the Government of India, candidates not possessing the minimum qualifications of Matriccould not be recruited in the Government service. At the same time, Commission also recommended that in exceptional circumstances like appointment on compassionate grounds, Government might need to provide employment opportunities to certain classes of persons not immediately meeting the minimum educational standards and Government could recruit them as “trainees” who would be given a regular pay band and Grade Pay only on acquiring the minimum qualification prescribed under the Recruitment rules.

Thus, it is amply clear that Board’s instructions dated 14.09.2012 applies exclusively in cases, where candidate being considered for appointment on compassionate grounds are not meeting the minimum qualification for entry into the Government service that is, in Grade Pay 1800/- and the word ‘trainees’ have been coined only for this limited purpose. It has nothing to do with trainees (who get stipend and not salary) in various posts of Grade Pay 1900 & above, where it is mandatory for persons to complete the training successfully, before joining a working post.
Please acknowledge receipt.
