Up gradation of Grade Pay of LDC and UDC – Latest Development
Though the Government establishments and Ministries/Departments cannot be run without the work Force of LDC and UDC, their demand of up gradation of the grade pay of LDC and UDC has not been considered yet by the Central Government. TKR Pillai, General Secretary, All India Association of Ministerial Staff (NG) has been putting considerable effort to highlight the issue at various forums to bring the solution for this issue. A letter of Shri M. Krishnan, Secretary General, Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, in this regard has been forwarded to DOPT by ministry of Finance to examine and consider this demand on merit. The copy of the letters and the Leaders opinion on this development is given below

TKR Pillai, General Secretary, All India Association of Ministerial Staff (NG) writes about this development in his blog and the same is reproduced here…
While going through the letter of the Ministry of Finance, as given below, it has become more clear that the Ministry of Finance is not willing to consider the genuine case of Lakhs of LDC & UDC of the Government of India Offices. It appears, the Ministry of Finance proposes Ministry/Department wise restructuring(with the provision of reduction of number of posts while applying matching/saving) of the posts. the proposal is not practical since the LDC & UDC are common cadres and spread over the entire Government of India Offices of various Ministries unless the MoF/DoPT clarifies the position further. In this context, the matter was discussed in the National Executive Meeting of the Confederation and the decision taken in it is given below. Thus all of us should prepare for the action as proposed by the Confederation. I feel it would be better if we exibit our unity/strength in the proposed Nation wide Mass Dharna called by the Confederation on 9th January 2014 at Delhi. I have discussed the matter with some like minded Associations who will also attending the Dharna Programme. All our friends are requested to give their valuable comments/opinion so that we may take the appropriate action on the matter.
