MERGER OF LDC & UDC
Demanded by All India Association of Ministerial Staff (Group C), Merger and upgradation of the posts of LDC and UDC and granting of Rs. 2800/ grade pay, Merger of the Posts of Office Superintendent & AO and granting of Rs. 4800 grade pay and Upgradation of the grade pay of Assistant to Rs. 4600/.
Giving membership to the ‘Group C’ Staff & submission of individual Consents-Regarding.
As has already informed that letters (regarding the recognition status of the Association and membership to the Assistants), sent to the Regions by the FOD are not based on the facts. Our Association is still recognized one. Further, our request for the inclusion of the Assistant as members of the Association is under consideration of the Ministry. You are aware that all Ministries except Ministry of Statistics of the Government had accepted all Non-Gazetted Staff in their Department as members of the Association working under JCM Scheme. Income Tax Inspectors with 4600/ grade pay are members of the Association recognized under JCM Scheme. Thus denial of membership for the Assistants with 4200 grade pay is not justified.
Meanwhile, the Association of the erstwhile group D in the name of All India Association Group C Staff (not recognized so far) has been trying to fetch Ministerial Staff to their fold. Despite of all efforts they have no succeeded in their mission so far. This is due to the reason that the Ministerial Staff know our Association through relentless struggles achieved several things for the betterment of the service conditions, promotion etc of the Ministerial Staff so far. In the year 1993 when our Association is formed Ministerial Staff were retiring on the post of UDC. Now the situation is improved. Retirement of every Ministerial Staff on 5400/ grade pay is our aim and we work accordingly.
At present we are at work with three important issues. (1) Merger of the Posts of Office Superintendent & AO and granting of Rs. 4800 grade pay. (2) Upgradation of the grade pay of Assistant to Rs. 4600/. (3) Merger and upgradation of the posts of LDC and UDC and granting of Rs. 2800/ grade pay. You have already seen the efforts made by us to achieve the aforesaid demands so far from our letters etc. All the correspondence made in this respect can be seen in our web site.
Since the erstwhile group D has been brought under group C folder by the CPC, there is a chance to accept our demand for a single Association for all Non Gazetted cadres by the Ministry. Thus we want to bring all erstwhile group D staff (now group C) to our fold to strengthwen the Association & keeping it in the first position. Further, from our past experience, I am sure that we can handle the issues of the group C (erstwhile group D) effectively so that they may get a better service condition and promotion channel in the days to come.
Thus all unit Secretaries/members of the Association are requested to please obtain the individual consents of the Group C staff in annexure B and forward the same, duly certified by the Unit Secretary, to the HO immediately. A copy of the Individual Consents alongwith Annexure A may please be forwarded to this Association Hqrs. Since I am on long leave following an accident, the letters may please be sent in my Residential Address i.e. 74/11, Govind Apartment, Govind Garden, Govindpura, Bhopal-462023.
This may be treated as most urgent.
With warm regards

The Grade Pay of L.D.C./U.D.C and Stenographer Gr.III & II should given according example —
L.D.C. G>p Rs. 2800
U.D.C. G.P. Rs.4200
Stenographer Gr.III& II GP RS. 4200
The Group ‘D’ is already getting GP 2400. L.D.C./U.D.C and Stenographer Gr.III& II may considered the above Grade Pay at the earlist. All above 3 categores are not happy for vi Pay Commission. Therefore, DOP&T may once re-examined the Grade pay of LDC/UDC & Stenographers at the earliest.
The Grade Pay issue of LDC and UDC should in taken at the highest level so that the decision could be taken urgently. The GP should be 2400 and 2800 respectfully, and the UDC with 5 years approvel service should be granted 4200 GP, as done for the CSS Cadre. Why the CSS is gaining an extra weight that non-css, as the working condition and same for all. Further, the field and subordinate office works more than the CSS offices. All the post should be universal

Mr. Pillai, what are u doing? You Being Gen Secy of this Assn, seems not interested in welfare of Admin Staff. If u are not serious in doing something good to these men please vacate ur post and let someone come and do the needful. Think twice.

6th CPC has unjustified with LDC with Grade Pay Rs.1900, and the staff of group D are getting almost same salary with Grade pay of Rs.1800. Only Rs.100 is different between group D staff whose qualification is illiterate, the responsibility is also nothing. Whereas the LDC are giving responsible job in every office but Govt. has fixed almost same salary. Therefore it is necessary to give justice with LDC by given grade pay of Rs. 2800. I am waiting of positive and justified decision of govt. in this regard.

After implementation of 6 CPC one post i.e. LDC has been very effected. Now it goes to the similar of the Gr.D staff, those Gr. pay is Rs.1800. There is no different in work allocation between LDC and UDC. Viz. both are doing same work in same section but pay different is far away. In MACPS only Rs.100 is added in Gr. Pay after completion of ten year service. We can assume what is the value of Rs.100 after 10 years. So I hearty request plz. consider on merger of LDC & UDC post and their grade pay may be fixed at least Rs.2800.
