Department of Post,
New Delhi- 110001.
Sub: - Request for review of decision communicated to CPMG, AP Circle on casual labor wages- Reg.
Ref: -Directorate Lr No:2.20/2012-PCC Dt.03.10.2013 A/T CPMG, AP Circle Hyderabad.
It is very unfortunate to bring to the kind notice of madam, the wrong interpretation given to DOPT OM No 49014/2/86 ESH (e) DT: 07.0.1988 in the connection to CPMG AP Circle vide letter cited U/R
In the above letter it was interpreted as follows
The acceptance of 6th CPC recommendations contained in Para 3, 7, 9, the Government vide resolution notified in Gazette No.304 dated 29-8-08 and all erstwhile Group-D posts were upgraded to Multi-tasking Staff in Group C effective from 01-01-2006. The Department notified their multi-tasking functions vide OM NO.1-20/2008-PCC dated 24-09-2010. Thus, keeping in view the multi-tasking nature of duties assigned to these MTS, the work performed by regular employees and that of casual laborers ceased to remain the dame and as such these casual workers can’t be paid at the minimum of the pay scale of MTS, which is in Group C. There is no Group-D pay scale in the Government any more.
But it is to mention that the contention of the directorate is not correct because already one separate scale is recommended by 6th CPC and implemented which is PB 4440 and GP 1330. Clear orders were issued to convert all Group-D officials by giving training as MTs and then only MTS scale was given. Till that type they were paid wages on IS payband that is Group-D scale.
It is not out of place to mention here that already as per the judgment of honorable CAT Chennai orders were issued by directorate to pay wages to casual labors working against MTS vacancies as per minimum of IS payband that is 4440 +GP 1330 and corresponding DA.
The present decision directing the CPMG AP circle to file case in high court deviating the earlier orders will attract contempt of court and deviation to earlier orders.
As such secretary is requested to review the decision once again and earlier orders may be reiterated immediately and help the poor casual employees who are denied of legitimate wages.
We also request the madam to consider and issue orders for payment of DA to contingent employees who are deprived from 2010.
We expect that madam will respond positively.
Thanking you madam,
1.Secretary General NFPE New Delhi. With request to per sue the matter with
