Subject: Grant of Grade Pay of Rs.4,600/- to Head Clerks/Assistants of AIR and Doordarshan.

This is in continuation to this Directorate’s letter bearing No.A-26020/2/2010-S.II dated 19.5.2010 followed by reminder dated 12.8.2010 and the discussions held with you. The information that is desired is as under:

Pay Scale of HC/Asstt Pay Scale of Asstts of CSS

As on 1.1.1976
Rs.425-700 Rs.425-800
As on 1.1.1986
Rs.1400-2600 Rs.1640-2900
As on 1.1.1996
Rs.5500-9000 Rs.5500-9000

2. It may also be added that the administrative cadre employees of AIR and Doordarshan have been seeking parity with the Central Secretariat cadre. With the implementation of recommendations of the 5th Central Pay Commission w.e.f. 1.1.1996 the two Scales became equal. However, the pay scale for CSS cadre Assistant was revised to Rs.6500-10500 w.e.f. 15.9.2006 though the pay scale of Head Clerk/Assistant has remained Rs.5500-9000. The other relevant information is that the Assistants of CSS cadre are classified as Group B (Non-Gazetted) whereas the Head Clerks/Assistants of GCS Cadre i.e. AIR and Doordarshan have been classified as Group C.

3. The Akashvani & Doordarshan Administrative Staff Association (ADASA) has given a call for holding Gherao/Dharna w.e.f. 11th November, 2010. After discussions with the officers of this Directorate, they have submitted written submissions in support of their demands. A copy of the same is enclosed.

In view of the agitation call given by the ADASA, the Ministry of I&B is requested to take immediate action on the issue so that the situation is resolved at the earliest.

"WE OPPOSE ANY MOVE AGAINST AMENDMENT OF PB ACT "- SANGAM THAKUR

General Secretary of Akashvani & Doordarshan Administrative Association Shri Sangam Thakur has given a call to all Zones to oppose any move against the amendment of Prasar Bharati Act by the government. He said that the employees who have taken advantage of Prasar Bharati and granted higher scales on the name of Prasar Bharati are now demanding for Repeal the Prasar Bharati Act which is quite immoral. He has requested all the Zonal Chairmen and Secretaries of ADASA to gather the support of MPs on the matter and the injustice done to the left over categories.

A NAKED TRUTH

All employees associations will be cooperative with each other. They may have some differences in their agenda, but they move forward at critical times. If we take the example of Bank Associations and Insurance associations, If Bank associations are going for an agitation, the associations of Insurance will express their solidarity. But the case of Prasar Bharati is entirely different. Certain categories of employees are granted higher scales on the name of Prasar Bharati. Till then the left over cadres are demanding for implementation of same order and making all efforts through agitations, courts. The Elder Brothers who got the benefits, instead of extending support, they have issued a notice to government which is placed here. The content is

“WE WILL BE COMPELLED TO GO ON AGITATION WITHOUT NOTICE UNDER THE FOLLOWING CIRCUMSTANCES: IN CASE OF PAY REVISION OF ANY CADRE IN ISOLATION WITHOUT CONSIDERING ALL THE CATEGORIES OF AIR & DD, INCLUDING THE EMPLOYEES REPRESENTED BY THE CONSTITUENTS OF NFADE”

Our elder brother is granted scales in isolation leaving other cadres. Individual Associations are fighting for the higher scales. Being Elder Brother of all associations and said to be representing 21 associations, Elder Brother can demand higher scales to left over categories. But Elder Brother clarified at Hyderabad that his agenda is only “Repeal Prasar Bharati” and no other demand will be taken up by him. Neither he will take up the demand nor he will allow to get the higher scales by individual associations. What may be his intention? Can any one tell? And it is also a surprise that being a representative of 21 associations called for negotiations by the government , Elder Brother did not attend the meeting with Joint Secretaries which is constituted for consideration of higher scales to left over categories of Prasar Bharati. What may be the reason?

TRUE COLORS OF NFADE

MY INNOCENT FRIEND

The wife asked his husband to highlight her importance “If I would not have born, whom would you marry?”. Husband immediately replied “ Your mother”. If both are equally intellectuals, there will not be any problem. If any one of the two is innocent in a team, the other one starts playing. The same thing is happening in Prasar Bharati. One of my friends said "because of the ELDER BROTHER, the employees are getting salaries in AIR & Doordarshan". I asked him “Is your Elder Brother giving from his pocket?” . My friend replied”NO No NO…because of the efforts of Elder Brother, we are getting salaries”. He also said ”Only because of Elder Brother, We are enjoying all government benefits like sixth pay commission, CGHS, Government Accommodation, KV and so many”. I asked him “ Are you a government servant or not?” My friend “ Definitely, I am a government servant” Then I said “ All these problems are for the employees who have been drawing corporation scales. If you would not get the Pay Commission scales, you would have got the corporation scales. But your elder brother got double bonanza of corporation scales as well as Pay Commission benefits. But what about you?” My Friend said “See.. if CGHS facility is stopped, imagine the situation". I said “ I can imagine, nothing will happen. Insurance coverage will be provided to all employees. Even government is also thinking to stop the CGHS facility” My friend said “ OK. If government accommodation is not provided, where can we stay in cities?” I smiled and said “ See my friend.. there are so many staff quarters constructed for the staff of AIR & DD in all states. I don’t think there will be problem” My friend raised his voice and said “ see if Kendriya vidyala has denied admission to our children, where will our children go for studies?”. I really annoyed and said. “See my dear friend, in how may places Kendriya vidyalayas are there? all these problems are the problems of your Elder Brother at Delhi. The employees staying in zones are not having these problems. Your Elder Brother"s problem is a national problem. But he least bothers of your problem. You have no promotion for twenty years. No recruitment in your cadre for ten years. Vacancies are getting abolished. No other benefits even though working for a corporation. But your Elder Brother is getting promotion for every six years, granted Corporation Scales, again another hike with Pay commission on corporation scales, recruitment for every year in their cadre. Behind all these things, the support of paid servants like you is also there to threaten the government and to fulfill his demands.” Even then my friend is not convinced. He said “My Elder Brother told me that I will loose my job”. I really felt and told him “ Oh..you alone is working two or three employees work. Your people are lesser than the actual requirement, unlike your Elder Brother. They are trying to frighten you on the name of corporation just to keep you in his control. Believe me”. My friend shook my hands and said “You are right”.
