Meeting with Hon. Anna Hazare for Old Pension Demand



Supported by



Most Hon'ble Hazareji

   It with great honour and due respect I would like to present before you some of the genuine and painful demands on behalf of the beleaguered  staff of Navodaya vidyalaya Samiti ; staff both in service and the retired. The reason why we wish to meet you is that we find in you the rays of hope as you symbolize today's justice. You inspire many with your vision and true mission. We, the staff of Navodaya Vidyalaya who work round the clock to feed, educate, enlighten the rural talents of Indian villages, who are economically and socially backward, and also who are mostly first generation learners. To uplift them Late prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi started this residential and co-educational education system all over the country, presently there are 600plus such schools. They are located in remote villages which are not properly connected with road, water and power. In such situations staff are working forgetting their kith and kins. Navodayas are the leading school system with 100% pass and 75% above with distinction. It is rare to see any one who completed education from Navodaya remain unemployed or straying. We could make good humans and good citizens with Gandhian values and principles of universal brotherhood. There are lakhs of rural children who could find their self and potential to serve for the cause of nation. This is our contribution to our country in nutshell.


Now our problem- we the staff don't have pension and other retirement benefits of Govt. of India which other employees enjoy. It is heartening to say that though we work average18 hours a day and we are not using the normal holidays except vacations. comparing to any school system or any government department we render service happily, but painfully to say our goodness and sincerity is exploited and we are treated step motherly. This is the only one educational department in India with out pensionery benefits. Many departments which were established later, were provided with retirement benefits though comparatively such institutions are located in urban areas as well as having less working hours.


Parliamentary committees, numerous commissions and ministries of H R D and Pensions and public grievances suggested and supported our cause but finance ministry rejected the proposals.  We knocked every doors for our rights and for the natural justice but all doors were closed by lame and unreasonable reasons. We are denied of our right because we are weak and unorganized. So reach you for justice as stand by with justice.

We conclude here with great hope that you can help us get justice to us.


With lots of unreserved and unconditional thanks.


 I remain


Sincerely Yours

(R.S Nayak )

Supreme Court limits Suspension period of Govt employees

A government employee can't be kept suspended for more than three months if not formally informed about the charges, the Supreme Court said Monday.

Based on the principle of human dignity and the right to speedy trial, the landmark verdict is expected to affect lakhs of government employees across India, many of whom are under suspension for years pending departmental proceedings.

"Suspension, specially preceding the formulation of charges, is essentially transitory or temporary in nature, and must perforce be of short duration," a bench headed by justice Vikramjit Sen said.

If the charge sheet or memorandum of charges was served within three month, the suspension could be extended, it ruled.

"If it (suspension) is for an indeterminate period or if its renewal is not based on sound reasoning…, this would render it punitive in nature," the court said.

It agreed with petitioner's senior counsel Nidhesh Gupta that a suspension order can't continue for an unreasonably long period.

Protracted periods of suspension had become the norm and not the exception that they ought to be, the court said. It drew a parallel with criminal investigation wherein a person accused of heinous crime is released from jail after the expiry of 90 days if police fail to file the charge sheet.

The suspended persons suffers even before being charged and "his torment is his knowledge that if and when charged, it will inexorably take an inordinate time for the inquisition or inquiry to come to its culmination". "Much too often this has now become an accompaniment to retirement," the court said, setting aside a direction of the central vigilance commission that required departmental proceedings to be kept in abeyance pending a criminal investigation.

The government, however, was free to transfer the officer concerned to any department in any of its offices to ensure the employee did not misuse contacts for obstructing the probe, the court said.

The order came on a petition filed by defence estate officer Ajay Kumar Choudhary, who was suspended in September 2011 for allegedly issuing wrong no-objection certificates for the use of a four-acre land parcel in Kashmir. After failing to get relief from the Delhi high court, Choudhary had moved the top court in 2013.

Since a charge sheet had already been served on Choudhary, these directions would not apply to his case, the court said.


DoPT clarifies leave encashment with LTC



Government of India

Ministry of Personnel, PG and Pensions

(Department of Personnel and Training)


New Delhi, dated the 9th February, 2015.



Subject: Encashment earned leave alongwith LTC- clarification.

The undersigned is directed to refer to DoPT’s 0.M. No. 31011/4/2008- Estt.(A), dated 23rd September, 2008 allowing encashment of earned leave alongwith LTC and to say that references have been received with regard to the number of times that a Government servant can avail of the encashment within the same block.


2. It is clarified that the Government servants governed by the CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972 and entitled to avail LTC may encash earned leave upto 10 days at the time of availing both types of LTCs, i.e. ‘Hometown’ and ‘anywhere in India’. However, when the one and the same LTC is being availed of by the Government servant and his family members separately in a block year, encashment of leave would be restricted to one occasion only.

3. Hindi version will follow.

Govt may sanction LTC Yearly and include Hotel Expenses in the new budget

In order to give boost to the tourism sector, the Budget for 2015-16 is likely to expand the scope of LTA and LTC by including hotel and other expenses besides travel for the purpose of tax benefit.

The Ministry, sources said, it is also considering a proposal to allow employees to avail Leave Travel Concession (LTC)/ Leave Travel Allowance (LTA) every year as against the current practice of two times in a block of four years.

At present, LTA or LTC covers only economy class air travel or first class (AC I Class) rail fare. An announcement in this regard is likely to be made in the Budget to be presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on February 28.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier expressed his keenness to promote tourism. Experts are of the view that encouragement to the tourism sector will promote development of different regions and create employment opportunities.

"To boost domestic tourism and also provide some tax relief to the individuals, the Leave Travel Concession benefit should be increased to one visit for every financial year," KPMG (India) Partner Vikas Vasal said.

He further suggested that tax concessions should also be made available for stay in hotel may also be covered to help families avail of a holistic benefit.

The LTC/LTA is available to the individual and his family including spouse, two children, parents, brothers and sisters, who are wholly dependent on the assessee.

"There is a huge scope for developing the tourism industry in India which provides direct and indirect employment to millions of people. Therefore, an enhanced tax relief to individuals on LTC will benefit the overall economy," Vasal said.
