Dear Sir,

Sub: Anomalies in the Pay Scales of Pharmacists – Grant of financial upgradation under MACP.

Ref: This office letter of even number dt.31/1/2014.

Vide this office letter quoted above, a legitimate demand for grant of promotion/career progression to Pharmacists in grade pay of Rs.4600/-, Rs.4800/- and 5400 instead of Rs. 4200/-, 4600/- and Rs.4800/ as per the decision of the Government was raised with a comprehensive justification with the aspiration that this issue would be resolved favourably to meet the end of justice, but it is astonishing that nothing positive has been heard in the matter, although the issue have all the merits.

Central Government women employees can get 730 days leave for child care: Supreme Court

Central Government women employees can get 730 days leave for child care: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Tuesday held that a woman employee of central government can get uninterrupted leave for two years for child care, which also includes needs like examination and sickness. A bench of justices SJ Mukhopadhaya and V Gopala Gowda set aside the order of Calcutta High Court which had held that Central Civil Services (Leave) Rules do not permit uninterrupted CCL(Child Care Leave) for 730 days.

“On perusal of circulars and Rule 43-C, it is apparent that a woman government employee having minor children below 18 years can avail CCL for maximum period of 730 days i.e. during the entire service period for taking care of upto two children. The care of children is not for rearing the smaller child but also to look after any of their needs like examination, sickness etc,” the bench said.

7th Pay Commission Report and the Need for Timeliness

7th Pay Commission Report and the Need for Timeliness

Background of the 7th Pay Commission

The 7th pay commission report - when is it going to be submitted? The announcement about the 7th pay commission report came out on September the 25th of 2013. This pay commission unlike the 6th pay commission was set up well in advance. This became possible due to significant efforts of various organisations, union lists and the finance commission report. Announcements say that the 7th pay commission will be implemented from 1.1.2016 and it will take approximately 18 months time for the report to be submitted. Recently, the 7th pay commission Chairman and the members gave out a public statement on 4.2.2014 and after that on 22.2.2014 the important 7th cpc terms and references were released. Now, the thought that floats on everyone’s mind is whether the 7th pay commission report will be submitted within the 18 months time period and will the employees be able to get the benefits along with their salary from 1.1.2016.

EXPECTED DEARNESS ALLOWANCE FROM JULY 2014

EXPECTED DEARNESS ALLOWANCE FROM JULY 2014

An overview of articles about DEARNESS ALLOWANCE

It is an appreciable trend that articles about Dearness Allowances continue to be churned each day. There are plenty of advantages and benefits in giving your own interpretation on a topic that millions are interested in. It helps a great deal in creating consensus opinion. Social media are especially useful in accomplishing this.

A very famous example is the unity and camaraderie between pharmacists a few years ago, and their success. The contribution of social media in the current protests being conducted by LDCs and UDCs is worth taking note of.

There is no denial to the fact that revolutionary new opinions expressed on social media have been useful for many in many different ways. There is also no doubt in the fact that members of the unions, associations, and federations continue to watch the social media. You can bet that in the near future almost all these leaders of unions and associations would have created their own individual websites and started expressing their opinions almost immediately.
