National Council will sit on Dharna on 28.3.2019 at New Delhi
National Joint Council Of Action
4, State Entry Road, New Delhi- 110055
February 9, 2019
The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India & Chairman,
We invite your kind reference to the representations made by the staff
side both in writing and orally during discussions bilaterally and
otherwise on innumerable occasions over the need to convene the National
Council meeting of the JCM, which met last about 9 years back.
Since there had been no meeting of the
National Council the directive issued by the Department of personnel to
various Ministries of the Government of India to convene the
Departmental Council meeting had also not been dwindled. We regret to
write that inspite of our persistent persuasion you have unfortunately
no found time for holding the meeting.
There had been no reason whatever for
such inordinate delay in convening the meeting. This apart, the
periodicity with which the National Standing committee used to meet has
also been dwindled. The National Anomaly Committee set up in the wake of
the 6th CPC is still to finalise its business.
The Staff Side, which met on 8th
February, 2019 at New Delhi, has come to the inescapable conclusion that
it must tread the path of struggle to get the negotiating forum revived
we are therefore, constrained to take recourse to agitational
programmes and have decided that all the Staff Side members of the
National Council will sit on dharna on 28th March, 2019 at New Delhi.
We hope you will take note of the
growing. discontent in the matter and take corrective steps to revive
the JCM and to convene the meetings immediately.
