Submission of Memo to 7 CPC --- Clarification regarding

No. CHQ/AIAIPASP/7CPC-Memorandum/2014     Dated :      15/10/2014


Shri Jayant Sinha,

Joint Secretary,

Seventh  Central  Pay  Commission,

Chatrapathi Shivaji Bhawan,

Ist,   Floor, B-14/A,

Qutub Institutional  Area, Delhi - 110014.

Subject : Submission of memorandum of All India Association of Inspectors and  Assistant Superintendents Posts to 7CPC….clarification regarding.

Ref.       : 7CPC Acknowledgement slip dated 27-8-2014 (copy enclosed)

Respected Sir

Kindly recall  our  Association’s  interaction  with  your  majesty    at   ‘Kumara  Kripa’    during   your   visit   to  Banglore  on  25.08.2014  at  around  07.30 PM. As  per  the  discussions  and  instructions, the  copies  of  Recruitment  Rules [Annexure-1]  of  both  Inspector  of  Income  Tax/Central  Excise  and    Inspector  Posts  are  submitted  herewith  for  your    perusal  and  kind  consideration.

Further,  this  association  likes  to   bring  the  following   issues  haunting  our   cadre in  a  nutshell.

Point  -1 : Non  implementation  of  6 CPC  recommendations  regarding  upgradation  of  Grade  Pay  of    Inspector  Posts.

6th Central  Pay  Commission   vide  its   Para  7.6.14 [Annexure-2]  had  rightly  recommended  the  upgradation  of    scale  of   Inspector  Posts  from   5500-9000  to   6500-10500   and    equated  the   scale  of   Inspector  Posts  cadre  with  that  of  counterpart  that  is  Inspector  Of  Income Tax  / Central  Excise  and  Assistants  in  CSS and  put  them  in  the identical  pay  scales    considering  that  they  are all  analogous  posts.

But  unfortunately,  the  same  was  not  implemented  though  the   GP  of  Inspector  of   Income  Tax/Central  Excise  and  Assistants  in CSS  are  upgraded  subsequently  by  the  separate  order  of  Ministry  Of  Finance  vide   OM No. 1/1/2008-IC dated 13.11.2009 & 16.11.2009 [Annexure-2A & 2B].

It  is  pertinent  to  note  that  the  Honourable  CAT,  Ernakulam Bench  had   issued  verdict  to  consider  the  upgradation  of   Grade  Pay  of  IP  to  4600/-. [Annexure - 3] This  Association  earnestly  requests  the  benevolent  to  kindly   reiterate and  recommend    the   decision  of   6th CPC.  

Point -2 : Considering  of   Promotion  acquired through   LDCE  for  the   MACP  purpose.

Since  66.66  %  of  the  Inspector  cadre  posts  are  being  filled  up  through  the   Limited  Departmental  Competitive  Examination,  the  three  financial  upgradations  under  MACP  scheme  has  not  been  deriving  virtual   benefit  to  this  cadre. 

So  this  association  requests  to  delink  the  promotion  conferred  on  account  of  LDCE  with  MACP.

Point-3 : Conferment  of  similar  Grade  Pay  to  both  the  Supervisor  and  the  Supervised    violating   the  principle  of   Natural  Justice.  

Inspector  and  Assistant  Superintendent Posts  are the  supervisory  cadre  and  controlling   cadre  for   Postmasters,  Postal  Assistants,  Postmen,  MTS. We  have  to  carry out  annual   inspections,  surprise  visits  and  also  investigate  the  fraud  cases  during  which  the  statements  of  the  supervisory/operative  staff  has  to  be  recorded  and  office   records  to  be  seized. Further,  the  honorarium  bills,  establishment  statistics,  public  complaints   against  the  operative  staff  are to  be  verified  and  enquired  into  by  our  cadre. To  back,  IP/ASP  cadre  officers  are  being  nominated  as  Inquiry  Officer  and   Presenting  Officer  in  the   Departmental  Inquiries  of  Rule-14  of  CCS[CCA]  Rules  1965.

Such  being  the case,  this  cadre   could  not   enforce  required  command  and  control  over  the  subordinate  staff  in  the light  of  the  fact  that  they  remain  in  the same   Grade  Pay  by  virtue  of  MACP  and  merger  of  pre revised  scales  of  5  Pay  Commission  5000/-,  5500/-  and  6500/-  which  was  given  the  common  replacement  Grade  Pay  of  4200/-. Actually,  this  merger  of  three  scales   has  downgraded  the  pay  of  Inspectors  instead  of  upgrading. As  a  result,  the  Clerical/supervisory    staff  lie  with  the  identical  Grade  Pay  of  4200/-  thereby   dismantling  the  entire  fabric  of    hierarchical  structure  of  the   operative  and  administrative  cadre.[Copy  of Hierarchy  is  enclosed-Annexure-4] 

So  this   association fervently   request  the  benevolent  to   consider this    anomaly  and    recommend  the  Pay  of  the  Administrative  Cadre  over  and  above  the   pay  of  supervisory  cadre.

Point-4 : Injustice  in   fixation  of  pay  as  on  01.01.2006  for  Inspector  Cadre.

Though Inspector  Posts   scale  was  upgraded  from  5500-9000  to  6500-10500,   while  fixing  the  pay  as  on  01.01.2006,  only  replacement  Grade  pay  of  4200  was  accorded  and  the  pay  was   fixed  with  the  pre revised  pay  of  5500  and  not  on  par  with  the  upgraded  pay  of  6500/-. The   minimum  pay  of   6500 X 1.86  was  not  allowed  and  thus   utterly    disgusting  and   depreciating  the  morale  of  the  cadre due  to  huge  financial  loss  which  will  have  cascading  effect  in  our  entire  career  including  pension. 

This  association  humbly   pray  the  benevolent  to  consider  all  the  above   aspects  and    make  appropriate  and  favorable  recommendations  and  resolve  all  our    predicament.

With respectful regards,

Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale) General Secretary
