MINUTES OF THE MEETING HELD UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF SECRETRY (P) ON 30.7.2021 TO DISCUSS THE LEFT-OUT ITEMS FROM THE MEETING OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL (NC) OF THE JOINT CONSULTATIVE MACHINERY (JCM), HELD ON 26.06.2021
Grant of 5 (five) effective upgradations to all Group B & C employees in entire service life
The demand in brief is that the employees should be given at least five upgradations in their entire carrier, as they do not get timely promotion.
AS( Pers), DoE, stated that three MACPs were recommended by the Pay Commission and approved by the Cabinet. Hence, grant of two additional MACPs is not within the powers of DoE, and pointed out that regular cadre review, which is covered in next agenda item, is the proper remedy for the settlement of their grievance. This will ensure their timely promotions.
The Chair stated that the remedy lies in review of each cadre. Respective Cadre Controlling Authorities (CCAs) may go for cadre review of each cadre in consultation with DoE
Decision: In view of the above, the matter may be treated as closed, insofar as action in NC, JCM is concerned. However, DoE would issue instructions to all Ministries/ Departments to expedite sending cadre review proposals.
