Subject: – Brief of meeting held with Hon’ble Fin. & Def. Minister

Dear Brothers & Sisters, Sadar Namaskar,

It is for your kind information that our delegates S/Sri V L Nawade , Sadhu Singh, Mukesh Singh & Virendar Sharma today had a meeting with Hon’ble Finance & Defence Minister, Shri Arun Jaitley at 1300 hrs. It was scheduled as a courtesy meeting but we invited his attention to the news articles on 100% FDI in defence sector because it was a great concern for all the stake holders. We reflected our concern vide a memorandum submitted by Shri Sadhu Singh (copy of the same is enclosed for ready reference).
Hon’ble Minister narrated how the Secretary, DIPP came to his office with the concerned minister on the same day of assuming the charge of ministry and shown the discussion paper prepared during the previous Government on 100% FDI in defence sector which he rejected at once. He has assured us that he is not in favour of 100% FDI in defence sector as neither it is required nor it is in the interest of the Nation. Not only that, he would take all the necessary steps to strengthen the existing Ordnance Factories & DPSUs but on the same time these defence installations require introspection.
Apart from above, some of the following issues were also brought to his notice which were considered by him very sympathetically and assured that appropriate action would be taken by concerned authorities:-

Defence installations should be exempted from 5% limit of Compassionate ground appointment and one time relaxation for all pending cases,

Re-draft the role of Defence (Finance) so that service matters like Recruitment Rules, Cadre Review, revival of sanctioned posts, payment of arrears, revision of allowances etc. may be settled at the earliest,

Judicial pronouncements may be extended to similarly placed non-petitioner employees,

The meeting of Departmental Council (JCM), MOD is not being convened regularly,

None of the Administrative Joint Secretaries of Departments of MOD has implemented the instruction {MOD I.D. No. 1(1)/2013/D(JCM), dated 22.10.2013} on the Mechanism to provide additional meeting opportunities to Staff Side to sort out their grievances,

The minimum benefit under Central Government Employees Groups Insurance Scheme should be enhanced to Rs. 10 lakh,

Dearness Allowance should be merged with Basic Pay, 

Scrap the New Pension Scheme and restore old Pension Scheme,

CSD Canteen facilities may be provided to the retired Defence Civilian Employees,

A separate meeting to discuss the issues related to Department of Defence Production (OFB, DGQA, DGAQA etc.).

After that we met Shri Navin Kumar Chaudhari, Joint Secretary (Establishment), Min of Defence and discussed following issues besides all the above issues; 1. Probable date of completion (PDC) on the pattern of citizen charters should be fixed for resolving the issues, for movement of file/paper from desk to desk/section in respect of issues raised by JCM/Federations and latest position should be updated in website, 2. A permanent cell of empowered officers from Min of Defence, Finance, Law, Labour, DoPT etc. should be constituted in MoD so that the Cadre Review & Recruitment Rules of Group ‘B’, ‘C’ & ‘D’ may be revised expeditely. 3. Remove the artificial restriction of 40 days PLB for AOC, Navy, Air Force, EME & Ordnance Factories. The PLB should not be less than the Adhoc Bonus of 30 days, and all ceilings on payment and eligibility of Bonus should be removed, JS (E) immediately called the DS (E) & DS (CP) and instructed to convene regular meetings of JCM and next meeting of Departmental Council (JCM), MOD may be convened on 24.06.2014 in Sena Bhawan.
