The National Council JCM Staff Side meeting is going to take place tomorrow in New Delhi. The meeting, to be attended by the representatives of all federations, will be chaired by the Staff Side Secretary, Shiva Gopal Mishra.

Important agendas of the meeting include demanding a change in the attitude of the Central Government towards the Central Government employees, merger of DA, granting interim relief and to hold discussions over the date of effect of the recommendations of the 7th CPC.

In the past, interim relief was granted before the recommendations of the new Pay Commissions were implemented. In the Fifth Pay Commission, it was recommended that whenever the DA crosses 50%, it should be added to the basic pay. The recommendation was accepted and in the year 2004, a 50% DA hike was added to the basic pay of all Central Government employees. Therefore, interim relief was not granted during the 6th Pay Commission.

There were also a number of confusions in the tenure of the Pay Commission, which had to be constituted once every ten years. One Pay Commission was almost lost, as a result. To make up for these errors, a demand has been presented to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission from January 1, 2014 onwards.

Tomorrow’s meeting attains prominence due to the fact that representatives of all the employee associations are going to participate and debate over some of the most eagerly awaited issues.



            History of Central Government Employees reveals that Government has taken undue advantage to deny the justified demands of the Central Government Employees, whenever there was disunity among the JCM staff side organizations. On the contrary, whenever staffside stood solidly united the Government was compelled to concede the legitimate rights of the employees to a great extent.

            After Fifth  Pay Commission recommendations, the JCM National council staffside submitted to Government a common charter of demands for modifications of the recommendations of the Pay Commission, which included upward revision of fitment formula and removal of certain glaring anomalies. When Government refused to concede it , notice for indefinite strike was given and finally the Government had to appoint a high-power Group of Ministers Committee under the chairmanship of then Home Minister Shri.Indrajith Gupta and negotiated with the staffside.  In the negotiations also the staffside took a united uncompromising stand which ultimately resulted in Government accepting the demand for 40% fitment formula and some other important demands.

            Unfortunately, when the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations were  submitted to Government, the JCM National Council Staffside miserably failed to take such a firm and united stand and no serious agitational programme was conducted demanding modification of the retrograde recommendations. Instead the dominant leadership of JCM staffside took a compromising stand and depended only on negotiated settlement , without mobilizing the entire rank and file membership behind the demands. Ultimately Government took advantage of this weakness of the leadership and unilaterally announced the implementation of the 6th CPC recommendations, without conceding majority of the genuine demands raised by the staffside during negotiations. Faulty formula adopted for calculation of  Need Based Minimum Wage , glaring disparity in fitment and fixation formula between lower level officials  and Group- A officers, unscientific pay band and grade pay system and serious anomalies arising out of it , MACP anomalies   everything remained as such  which could not be settled even after seven years.

            Again , when the Government announced the New Contributory Pension Scheme with effect from 01.01.2004 for the new entrants in Central Government Services without any consultation with the JCM National Council Staffside, the dominant  leadership of the JCM staffside did not protest and kept silent. This has emboldened the Government to go ahead with the implementation of the neo-liberal pension reforms. Had the entire JCM Staffside including Railways, Defence and Confederation taken a united stand to oppose the New Pension Scheme and given call for serious agitational programmes including indefinite strike the Government would not have dared to implement the NPS. Of course , Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers opposed the New Pension Scheme and has gone to the extent of conducting one day strike. JCM leadership raised the demand for roll-back of NPS after a very long time and by that time Government succeeded in fully implementing the scheme.

Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers has always stood for unity among the Central Government Employees .When confederation submitted a 15 point charter  to the UPA Government in 2011 demanding appointment of 7 th CPC , 5 year wage revision , Merger of 50% DA, Inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks under 7th CPC etc, the  other major organizations in the JCM were not ready to raise the demands in 2011. Finally confederation was forced to go it alone and conducted series of agitational programmes including Parliament March, one day strike and two days strike. Of course, the lonely struggle conducted by confederation represented the mood of the entirety of Central Government Employees and ultimately the Government was compelled to announce constitution of 7th CPC in the month of September 2013.
                        Now NDA Government which came to power after General   Election has rejected all the main demands of the Central Government Employees which includes merger of DA , Interim Relief , Date of  effect  from 01.01.2014 , inclusion of GDS in the terms of reference of 7th CPC ,scrapping of New Pension Scheme etc. Further Government declared 100% FDI  in Railways and Defence. Public Private Partnership in Railways was also announced in Railway budget. More than five lakhs posts are lying vacant in various Departments out of which about 2.5 lakhs vacancies are in Railways alone. The UPA Government has unilaterally announced the terms of reference of the 7th CPC rejecting the draft proposal submitted by JCM staffside.  The memorandum submitted by JCM staffside to the NDA Government for grant of merger of DA and Interim Relief also was totally neglected. The JCM Staffside leadership could not do anything and the employees are suffering. In fact the JCM staffside has become a laughing stock among the employees and its credibility in the eyes of the employees has eroded like anything.

                        It is in this background , eventhough belatedly , the JCM National Council Staffside has decided to organize a National Convention at New Delhi on 11th December 2014 , to discuss and finalise its strategy to combat the above humiliation meted out by the Government . Better late than never. The decision is well received by the entire Central Government Employees and they are eagerly waiting for the outcome of the convention.

                        NFPE  firmly believes that if the present unity among the JCM staffside organizations is not channelized for building up united struggle including indefinite strike of entire Central Government Employees the National Convention will become a futile exercise and an eye-wash to cool down the growing discontentment among the employees. This shall not happen. We firmly believe in the slogan raised by our late legendary leader Com K.G.Bose- i.e  “UNITY FOR STRUGGLE AND STRUGGLE FOR UNITY”. Such a stand alone can restore the lost glory of the fighting potential of the Central Government Employees and also shall regain the lost faith of employees in the JCM staffside leadership. We cannot be a party to any compromise on the genuine and justified demands of the workers. Let us hope that the JCM staffside leadership shall rise up to the occasion.

Visiting Places nearby Sambalpur
Ghanteswari Temple
The Ghanteswari Temple, also referred to as Maa Ghanteswari Temple, is situated 33 km south-west of Sambalpur, on the banks of River Mahanadi. This temple is famous for its wish fulfilling bells that are offered by the devotees, to the goddess of this temple. These bells are seen all around this temple and were also used to warn and guide early sailors.

The area around this temple is a conglomeration of three streams. The Mahanadi river used to have many whirlpools in earlier times and many boats used to drown in it. So, to warn any sailor nearing this spot, the bells of this temple were shaken fiercely to produce loud sounds. Due to this, this temple is also called the ‘lighthouse without light’. The place became safer after the construction of the Hirakud Dam, nearby. The Chiplima Hydro Power plant is also situated near this temple.
Hirakud Dam
The Hirakud Dam is an important structure, as well as a popular sightseeing attraction of the Sambalpur District. This dam is built across the River Mahanadi at about 15 km from the city. It was constructed in 1956; and today, it forms the largest earthen dam and the longest dam of world, with a length of 26 km. The main purpose of constructing this dam was to check the massive floods and periodic droughts, along with providing its area with proper drainage facilities.
The dam comprises the biggest artificial lake in Asia, with its reservoir of 743 sq km at full capacity and a shoreline of 640 km. The overall length of the main dam is 4.8 km, which is stretched between Lamdungri Hills on its left and Chandili Dunguri Hills on its right. There are also two observation towers present within the premises of this dam, namely ‘Gandhi Minar’ and ‘Nehru Minar’, that provide a panoramic view of the lake.
Samaleswari Temple
The Samaleswari Temple lies in the Sambalpur District, on the banks of River Mahanadi. This temple is dedicated to Sri Sri Samaleswari, who is the presiding deity of Sambalpur, as well as a strong religious force in the western part of Orissa and Chhattisgarh. In ancient times, Goddess Samaleswari was worshiped as Jagatjanani, Adishakti, Mahalaxmi and Mahasaraswati. The most visited days of this temple include Navaratri and the Nuakhai Festival.
Huma Temple
The Huma Temple, also known as the ‘leaning tower of Huma’, is another popular temple of Sambalpur, situated at 23 km from the district, at the banks of River Mahanadi. This temple was built in 1670, by King Baliar Singh, who was the fifth king of the Chauhan Dynasty of Sambalpur. It is known as a leaning temple because it does not stand upright, but is tilted more towards one side. Every item within the temple complex is also skewed.
The main deity of this temple is Lord Shiva. According to legend, there was a milkman who used to cross the Mahanadi every day, to worship Lord Shiva. He used to offer milk to the rock idol of Shiva, which consumed the milk every day. This miraculous incident led to the construction of Huma Temple in the place. The most visited day of this temple is the Shivratri, when a large number of devotees come here for offering milk to the idol of Lord Shiva, present in this temple.
Ushakothi Wildlife Sanctuary
Ushakothi Wildlife Sanctuary, also known as Badrama Sanctuary, is a popular wildlife sanctuary situated 43 km north-east of Sambalpur, on the National Highway number 6. This sanctuary was established in 1962, over a total area of 130 sq km; and is one of the smaller sanctuaries of Orissa. This sanctuary also has the popular Hirakud Dam, situated to its west. It is also one of the locations for ecotourism and has accommodation facilities for its travellers, in its premises itself, in the form of the Forest Rest House. This rest house is situated 3 km away from the sanctuary and along with accommodations, it also provides guides and spot lights for nominal charges.
The main species of animals here, include elephants, tigers, leopards, bisons, nilgai, cheetal, wolves, spotted deer, gaur, black panthers, sambar, wild bears, flying squirrels and racket tail dragons. Royal Bengal tigers and wild Asian elephants are the special attractions of this place. These animals can be seen with the help of wildlife safari jeeps, available here. The forests of this sanctuary are mainly dry deciduous, containing trees like Neem, Sal, Acacia, Sandalwood, Casuarinas and Arjun.
