MESSAGE UPDATE 10th JULY, 2017
1. DADWA’s Contempt Petition against MOHFW and DOPT for delaying implementation of NFU scheme in CHS/DHS and consequent grant of financial benefits despite the judgment dated 13-10-2014 of Hon’ble High Court if Delhi is due for its hearing on 20th July 2017.
Members are aware that the MOHFW is at the receiving end for having failed to put its act together and implement the said orders of Hon’ble Delhi High Court in its letter and spirit. It released a list of 159 doctors vide OM dated 24-3-2017. Please also recall that the High Court had taken cognizance of DADWA’s complaint and directed MOHFW to include benefits of NFU scheme for all CHS/DHS Officers irrespective of their sub-cadres affiliations. But a large number of doctors have been left out in grant of financial upgrade under NFU without knowing the reasons thereof. It is reliably learnt that MOHFW is ready with some more lists but delaying it deliberately so that the affected service doctors and DADWA are not able to file their objections to the court on 20-7-2017
It is therefore requested that all service doctors, of any sub-cadre of CHS/DHS, who, due to reasons known or not known to them, if not included in the list of officers of SAG and HAG are requested to send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” as soon as possible so that inputs can be given to the Hon’ble Court in this contempt case. It is apparent that the middle level bureaucracy is bent upon denying the benefits of 6th pay commission to the service doctors even when the 7th pay commission recommendations are out.
2. Regarding 7th PC recommendations DADWA has received feedback from a large section of service doctors that they are dissatisfied.
They feel that the recommendations are prejudiced against doctors whose NPA and allowances have been reduced while the mandate of the commission was to increase them, taking care of the needs of government servants to counter the effect of inflation and decreasing purchasing powers of money with tike till next pay commission comes into force. It is apparent that the net increase of pay is small and in some cases negative. To this extent the 7PC has failed in fulfilling its terms of reference.
Members are requested to come out with their views on the recommendations of the committee on allowances notified on 7-7-2017 in the views section of this “www.dadwa.com”
