DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE DIRECTS THE MINISTRY OF STATISTICS & PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION TO SEND PROPOSAL FOR UP-GRADATION OF GRADE PAY OF LDC & UDC TO THEM
Department of Expenditure (DoE) vide OM No. 58(2)/E.III(B)/2014 dated 18th February, 2014(enclosed) has forwarded the letter/documents demanding upgradation of the grade pay of LDC & UDC to Rs. 2400 & 2800 respectively, to the Financial Adviser, Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation(MoS&PI) with a direction to examine the representations and forwarding the same to DoE for consideration in the form of a proposal, through IFD. In this respect, this Association has already made it clear that the LDC & UDC issue is a clear anomaly aroused due to the discriminatory recommendation/implementation of the 6th Pay Commission and the same is to be rectified as an anomaly and not as a cadre restructuring. As has already informed you that this Association has decided to file a case in the CAT by 1st week of March for getting implemented the upgradation from the date of implementation of the 6th CPC and the preparation for the same is in full swing. However, since the DoE has directed the MoS&PI in favour of upgradation of Grade Pay of LDC and UDC, a letter demanding implementation of the upgradation from 1.1.2006 is being sent to the Joint Secretary, MoS&PI before filing the case.
