Representation PROFORMA for 15 demands from all Units

F.No. AINVSA-2011-12/8-1 Date: 06-08-2011.

The Hon`ble Commissioner
Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti
A-28,Kailash Colony,
New Delhi-110048.
Sub: Submission of demands for consideration and initiating necessary action – Reg
Respected sir,
Despite our regular demands over the last few years it is sad to note that the Management has done very little to mitigate the problems of the staff. Hence, the All India Navodaya Vidyalaya Staff Association (AINVSA) would like to bring to its attention the following demands once again for positive consideration and immediate necessary action.
1. Govt. of India CCS Pension to all employees joined prior to 1.1.2004: we have brought to the notice of the Government of India the injustice done to the staff by denying them of the benefits the CCS pension. The Association has represented the matter to all important dignitaries in the present UPA government and it is time once again to vociferously voice our anguish at the injustice.
2. 10% Special Allowance to Non-Teaching staff: The Association decries the cold and discriminatory attitude of the government of India towards the non-teaching staff in Navodaya Vidyalyas who have played no less pivotal role in enhancing the reputation of the Samiti as a premier organization in the field of secondary education by their selfless and dedicated services. The work load borne by them is more than their counterparts in KVS and, hence, they deserve the 10% special allowance as much as the teaching staff.
3. Recognition of All India Navodaya Vidyalaya Staff Association: The Samiti should initiate the process to recognize AINVSA immediately and give due representation to the concerns of the staff in all matters of administration pertaining to them. It can only win the confidence and support of the staff only when it recognizes their collective voice which the AINVSA represents.
4. Defining working hours for all categories of employees: It does not need any evidence to prove that the staff of Navodaya Vidyalayas work for longer hours than the ones defined by Samiti itself. As a result of this, the staff is deprived of precious personal time and innumerable compensatory leaves and put to untold stress. A mechanism should be devised to extract qualitative work from the staff by giving them due space for personal life.
5. Appointment of Warden and Matron on permanent basis:
The Association demands appointment of warden and matron to assist the House master/House mother and cooperate with the administration in the successful running of the residential system. The NVS should waste no time in the appointment of regular wardens/matrons as promised by the Commissioner at the beginning of 2009-10 academic year.

6. Implementation of rational transfer policy: The Association expresses its dissatisfaction at the transfer policy followed by the Samiti which gives no scope for regular transfer of its employees and allows most to stay in one place for any number of years. A scientific rational transfer policy with the suggestions of stake holders may be devised and implemented.
7. 12 day casual leave to all staff working at vidyalaya level: Since the staff work on all days including holidays, it is unjust to implement 8 - day casual leave policy which is applicable to a non-residential system like KVS. The NVS authorities should do away with this un just 8- Day CL system and re implement the old 12 – day casual leave system though it hardly compensates the number of public holidays the staff have been foregoing .
8. Restoration of Earned Leave to teaching staff / Vacation staff in addition to Half Pay leave: The Association demands the restoration of Earned Leaves on full pay as the teachers are the only employees denied of earned leave by the Central Government. The Earned Leave facility was granted to the teachers working in Central Government during Smt Indira Gandhi’s time as a special case in lieu of 20 days half pay leave
9. MACPS to teaching staff: Consequent upon the recommendations and implementation of VI CPC, the non-teaching staff have become eligible for getting three financial up gradations under the MACPS at intervals of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuous regular service. The Association demands the implementation of the same to the teaching staff also as the monetary benefits of senior scales sanctioned on the completion of 12 years are very negligible.
10. Timely promotion to all staff: More than half the teaching staff has been deprived of their timely promotional opportunities because of the laid-back approach of the Samiti. As a result, the staff has become less enthusiastic about promotions and accepting challenges. The Samiti has failed to tap the potential of the staff at the right time which has surely blunted its weaponry.
11. Weekly off to all categories of staff: As the staff of Navodaya Vidyalayas work round the clock on all days of the week in view of residential nature of their job, they may be granted a regular weekly off on any convenient day subject to exigencies, so as to enable them to attend their domestic problems.
12. Honouring court judgements: We demand that the Samiti should implement the directives given by the CAT and other courts as regards service matters. It should honour the working hours and stop exploitation of staff. It should make suitable arrangements to run the residential system more effectively by appointing more staff. We also demand that the Samiti should draft a more scientific transfer policy along the lines of KVS and do justice to staff who have been working away from their native places for decades. The Samiti should also stick to its promotion policy and promote TGTs regularly which only can do justice to aspiring staff.
13. Stepping up of pay of Seniors with that of their juniors: The pay scales of Senior TGTs should be stepped up with juniors in line with the Kendriya Vidyalaya sangathan TGTs as they suffer monetary loss in the absence of recruitment in 2006 in all the regions of the NVS except Shillong.

14. Scrapping of MOD system: The MOD system has been devised to impose more workload on the teachers. The NVS, through its recent circular, has levied 17 hours of non-stop workload on teachers which has no such precedent anywhere in India. It is against all labour laws and violation of human rights. Besides, it totally disregards Sundays, public holidays, and clearly exposes how teachers are exploited in the NVS. Hence, the Association demands scrapping of MOD system immediately.
15. Enhancement of HM/AHM allowance: The teachers not happy with the enhancement of HM/AHM allowance to Rs.800/400 per month as the responsibilities thrust on them are very demanding. The hike is far less than what is demanded by the Association. Hence, the Association demands that the HM/AHM allowance should be raised to Rs.5000/4000.

The Association demands the Management once again to positively consider the above 15 demands and redress the grievances of staff as it would go a long way in boosting their morale and strengthening the organization.
Thanking you
Yours Sincerely

Respected Sir,
Sub: Application of Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) in place of Senior
Scales/Selection Scales to the teaching staff – Reg
This is to bring to your immediate attention and necessary action the long-standing demand
of the teachers for the adoption of Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS)
for the teaching staff on a par with the non-teaching staff.
Prior to the implementation of the recommendations of the VI CPC the teachers were granted
Senior scales after the completion of 12 years of service while the non-teaching staff were
sanctioned the benefits of ACP. Even after completion of 12 years of service, the financial
benefits for the teaching staff were negligible as they were given just the stage benefit. The
non-teaching staff benefitted more as they were granted the next promotion scale as well
as one increment.
Following the implementation of the VI CPC, the NVS has recently adopted the MACPS to all
the non-teaching staff and, as a result, they have become eligible for getting three financial up
gradations at intervals of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuous regular service. Unfortunately, the
need to extend the same beneficial scheme for the teaching staff has not been considered. As
a result, the teaching staff is likely to suffer a heavy monetary loss.
The 12 years span for consideration of Senior Scales and the granting of just a stage benefit
clearly shows the discrimination against the teaching staff. The Selection Scales are granted to
only 20% of the teachers who have completed 24 years of service. 80% of staff who have
rendered such long service are deprived of the benefits .The Association strongly objects to
the continuation of same Career Advancement Scheme which has done little benefit to the
teachers in the past. It is high time such discriminatory treatment is rectified and the MACPS is
also extended to the teaching staff, extending an equally honorable treatment to them.
The teaching community is strongly against the continuation of the discriminatory and nonbeneficial
old Career Advancement Scheme and demands for the adoption of the MACPS on a
par with the non-teaching staff immediately.
The entire Teaching Community earnestly requests the NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA SAMITI to
adopt and implement the MACPS with immediate effect to boost the morale of the
Thanking you
Yours Sincerely
President General Secretary

Some Clarifications by Mr.Rajan

For every good thing there can be a subversive action by some vested interests.This is what happened to our pension issue too.That is what is happening still now,too.
We have made extensive discussions with eminient advovates.They proposed to us to file cases in any number of HCs.In order to avoid multiplicity of verdicts we can transfer the case to SC.
Of late some people have come to oppose this attempt. They are the people who with their political clout and lenience towards Delhi NVS administration had connived with them and made arrangements to call a meeting on 28th January 2010 and finally forced the leaders to withdraw the Indefinite Strike. Most surprising thing is that though Sri.V L Balasubramanian and Sri.RS Naik have been accused by them for having contrived to effect the debacle and treachery they were out of frame in this issue.Reasons: after the 23rd meeting they had left for their respective places.They had atteneded the 25th JAC Meeting held at Pune. By the time they reached Delhi the stage was stage for the withdrawal. It was done by intimidating the rast of the leaders. The most intriguing fact is why Sri.V L Balasubramanian and Sri.R S Nail conceal the truth. If they have commitment to the 17,312 people they should reveal the truth.
The court case in Jharkand HC is not strongly supported by arguments and documents. If the case doesn’t click this will have widespread repercussion on the case if it is taken to SC. But a case won at HC will give us a winning razor edge at SC.
Please see the details of the Jharkhand Case

There are hundreds of documents and arguments.Why such people avoid all this ? Do they want the case to fizzle out and people get cheated once again to consolidate their near relation with Delhi NVS administration ?
Let us think independely.
Let our thoughts be not controlled by others
Let not others put their words in our mouths.


A case was filed in Kerala CAT on 21st December,2001.
Another case was filed in Hyderabd CAT
Still another case was filed in Delhi CAT
Still one more case was filed in Hyderabad HC.
Who minds the truth ?
If you are really serious be honest and pay heed to honest words.Dont get deceived.

Sastri Bhavan,
New Delhi

Sub: Submission of Strike Notice to Govt. of India & NVS – Indefinite Hunger Strike will be started at Delhi on 5th September (Teacher’s Day), Non co operation and Boycott Strike

Respected Sir,

As the new academic year commences you can be once again proud of our hard work and commitment for having produced the best academic result in the previous year and held the reputation of NVS very high.
But you will also accept that the health status of JNV staff who have been toiling hard over the years has deteriorated terribly. Many have left us forever in grief .Many have contracted illness causing huge financial burden to their families. Yet NVS authorities have not opened their eyes to us.
NVS has not shown any concern to our demands yet. In the case of implementation of CCS Pension scheme under rule 1972 and other Genuine demands. NVS has cheated 18,000 staff and their families. Today we have no other option but to resume our protest activities with renewed spirit, vigor and confidence. In the previous year AINVSA had made several attempts through Ministers and MPs to press our demands. But NVS continues to behave as our enemies. Their reluctance to implement staff welfare schemes is quite appalling.
In this connection, AINVSA made extensive discussions with Principals, Teachers and non-teaching staff all over India regarding beginning of protest activities during the academic year 2011-12.We have received highly positive and enthusiastic support from all.
As per the resolutions taken at the Central Executive Committee meeting of All India Navodaya Vidyalayas Staff Association, we would like to bring to your kind notice that the following grievances of the staff of NVS have not been resolved as yet in spite of our repeated requests. Hence we implore your good self to take up these grievances for early redressal in our favour.
Hence AINVSA will launch a Hunger Strike in New Delhi from September 5(Teacher’s Day). National Leaders of AINVSA will participate in the Strike. Let it be a great beginning with all your blessings and support.
It is our genuine expectation that NVS/Central Govt. call AINVSA leaders for a meaningful & just solution to the long pending demands, failing which NVS staff under the leadership of AINVSA would take up an indefinite Hunger Strike starting from 5th September 2011 at New Delhi. Before the Hunger Strike, NVS staff would also start a Non co operative movement the details of which are discussed in detail below.

Our Major demands

1. Implementation of CCS Pension Scheme rule 1972 for all NVS Employees: The entire staff community is greatly aggrieved at the fact that there has been no positive sign with regard to the implementation of GPF Pension Scheme rule 1972 for those who joined before 1.1.2004.

2. Sanction of 10% Special Allowance to non-teaching staff: 10% special allowance, which is now given only to the Teaching staff may be given to all the employees of the NVS.

3. Recognition of AINVSA: To declare the recognition of AINVSA, though we have submitted near 8000 nos. of membership within the stipulated time before NVS. Take disciplinary action against the officials those who worked against giving the recognition of AINVSA.

4. Scrap Master On Duty system: The purpose of MOD has become redundant as there are two administrators, Principal and Vice Principal in each Vidyalaya to look after the functioning of the School. For all other administrative management, various committees such as M&R Committee, CCA Committee, Purchase Committee, Mess Committee, etc. are constituted with teaching staff as its members and that the system functions smoothly and effectively. Therefore, it is requested that MOD duty system may henceforth be scrapped.

5. Enhancement of House Master/Associate House Master’s Allowance: As we have requested earlier kindly take necessary steps to enhance HM/AHM Allowances as Rs.5000/- and Rs.2500/- respectively.

6. Appointment of permanent Wardens and Matron: Since the teaching staff is already overburdened with academic and co-curricular activities, kindly take necessary steps towards appointment of four permanent wardens for boys’ hostels and make the post of two matrons permanent.

7. NVS doesn’t have any power to freeze the CCL up to 30/9/11: It is strongly felt that NVS is neglecting the rules and regulations of Govt. of India. For example- NVS has frozen the rules of the CCL and NVS Hyderabad Region has issued directions to the Principals not to sanction CCL up to 30th September 2011. It is brought your kind attention that NVS doesn’t have any power to freeze the Order of the Govt. of India. Necessary action may be initiated against those officials whose directions are an over reach to the GOI orders.

8. Follow the CBSE Norms: Implementation of CCE in NVS is very unrealistic & still evaluate children based on marks. Sprit of CCE is to be understood & to be implemented strictly as per CBSE guidelines. Follow the CBSE Norms for the implementation of CCE and extend training to all the teachers to implement CCE. It may be noted that, many schools have earmarked afternoon and evening supervised study for CCE activity. This has greatly stressed the teachers as well as students. Burdening children with a lot of written work in the name of CCE assessment is to be looked into seriously. It is better that the NVS authorities who implement CCE in the Vidyalayas do it after a thorough understanding of the same.

9. Higher salary: Navodaya Vidyalaya employees are forced to work more than 18 hours per day. So implement higher pay scale not less than double salary to Navodaya Vidyalaya staff.

10. Transparent transfer policy: To Develop & implement proper, transparent transfer policy to all the categories of employees of NVS yearly. Transfer must be on the basis of seniority. It is strongly felt that there is no need for a North east transfer policy. If only NVS make all initial appointments only for north east and other hard difficult stations, the need to transfer staff at a later stage when their family commitments are huge and the staff’s health state is not sound would reduce to a large extent. However, AINVSA supports 3 year tenure to North east and hard & difficult stations to all its staff once in their service. Moreover all such staff who are posted to North east and hard & difficult stations must be transferred to their choice place with all transfer benefits. It is also felt that all staff should get a chance to work for a tenure of at least three years at their home district once in their service.

11. Publish the rank & Promotion: To declare and publish the rank list of different promotion tests conducted by NVS for different posts. Appointment on promotion basis from the rank list should be made transparent. The publication of rank lists will ward off the doubts among the minds of the candidates.75% of all the posts should be filled by appointing departmental candidates. Direct recruitment may be restricted to 25% wherever possible.

12. Senior grade & selection grade: Take steps to grant senior grade & selection grade to the different categories of employees immediately after the completion of service as per the rule of Govt. of India. Also fix 8 years of service for senior grade and 16 years of service for selection grade respectively. No staff should be denied of their legitimate due of Grade for non completion of 21 days training.

13. Reintroduction of EL: As per the Govt. orders half pay leave has been reintroduced for the teaching staff of NVS. It should be in addition of E.L. and not replacement. So E.L may again be reintroduced along with H.P.L.

14. ACP/Senior Scale: Even after completion of 12 Years regular service before the implementation of 6th Pay Commission and 10 Year service after implementation of 6th Pay Commission several employees have not been given ACP/Senior scale. Further those who received senior scale have not received their arrears as yet. It is also brought to your kind notice that teachers who get the senior scale do not get financial benefit as in the case of ACP Scheme. Hence similar benefits may be allowed to teaching staff also so that they too get the notional increment.

15. Rectification of pay anomalies: Pay anomalies of staff remain unresolved. Since anomalies are considered subject wise within the region it is our request that such restrictions may be avoided so that the pay scales of all PGTs/TGTs may be considered for comparison for the purpose of rectification.

16. Building of Head quarter: Take steps to construct Building of Head quarter in the 4 Acre acquired land in Noida. Avoid corruption in connection with the rents for the present building. It may be viewed seriously against those officials who are responsible for construction work as to why permanent building for NVS, H.O has not been constructed all these years and necessary action may be initiated at the earliest in this regard.

17. Centralized purchase. The system of centralized purchasing of Computers, Uniform Clothes, Library Books, bags etc. should be stopped. The things purchased through this system are not of good quality. To stop the corruption, stop the practice of centralized purchasing.

18. Enhance Mess Fund: It is everybody’s knowledge that the prices of all food materials are very high. Even the allotted funds are not sufficient to meet the food requirements of the students. So the present system of meeting the salary of casual workers from the fund of children should be stopped. NVS has to sanction fund to give salary to the temporary workers in the mess. The fund allotted to the children should be enhanced to Rs. 2500 per month.

19. Wages, PF and Medical Allowance to mess workers temporary casual Labors: The mess workers and other temporary casual workers doing full time work may be provided with the service benefits recognized by different state governments such as Minimum Wages, PF and Medical Allowance .Take immediate steps for the direct recruitment of permanent workers in the Mess & Garden.
20. Higher Post (PGTs) & Optional Course: Higher study option may be given to subjects like Regional Language Art, Music Work experience and PET; Optional courses may be started at least in one Vidyalaya in each state.

21. Navodaya Homes: Open Navodaya Homes in each state and protect the poor Navodaya retired employees in such homes.

22. Discussion with service organizations: The introduction of academic reforms and any important policy matters should be made transparent. For that in the beginning of every academic year hold consultations with the representatives of service organizations. The employees have not been given any opportunity to be apart of such important matters though they are the staff who know the ground reality and also will ultimately work hard to implement the same at the grass root level. Hence implementation of unilateral reforms which are introduced without proper discussions is not in the interest of the welfare of students and staff of NVS.

23. Overtime Allowance: To implement overtime Allowance to the employees those who are engaged more than 8 Hrs Duty for Non teaching staff and those teachers who work beyond the stipulated time schedule as given by NVS (07.15 AM to 01.40 PM). Take corrective steps against the Principals those who are imposing unnecessary duties to the teachers.
24. Stop Extra Classes: Stopping early Morning & after 9 PM extra classes with immediate effect .

25. Garden Workers: Two workers may be appointed to take care of Vidyalaya garden and vegetable garden. Sanction an amount not less than Rs. 5,00’000 every year in each Vidyalaya for gardening and agriculture.

26. Court cases against staff: NVS may disclose the total amount which it spends every year for court cases against staff. The NVS officials who are responsible for unnecessary cases may be penalized. It may also be noted that the regular practice of all Govt organizations to accept the verdicts of the lower courts and not moving the higher courts for further appeal in individual cases may be followed .The public money shouldn’t be wasted in the furtherance of all such cases in higher courts, in a revengeful attitude towards the staff who file such cases.
27. Anomalies: To settle the different Anomalies existing in different categories (Principal, Vice principal PGTs, TGTs …etc, and avoid the subject wise categories) of employees with immediate effect.
28. Class IV employees should be promoted to the vacant posts of LDCs and Storekeepers.

29. Amendment in Promotion Policy from TGTs to PGTs: It has been found that some anomalies are existing in promotion policy. The TGTs are being promoted to PGTs subject to fulfillment of requisite qualification. It is very strange that TGT (SS) are not being promoted to the post of PGT (Economics) even though they are qualified Master Degree holders in Economics. It would be justifiable to allow them for the post of PGT Economics. It is notable that in sister organization like KVS the TGT’s (SS) is being given promotion to the post of PGT Economics if they have master degree in Economics. Moreover a good number of posts of PGTs are vacant but the promotion process is very slow. We would like to request to accelerate the promotion process in all subjects.

30. Principal post: For the selection of principal post in JNVs, restrict 8 years experience as PGTs of JNVs
31. No age bar: For direct recruitment for various posts in NVS, consider no age bar to the employees of the NVS like KVS
32. Teaching allowance: Sanction teaching allowance to Principal and all teaching staff.

33. Children education allowance: On the basis of the norms of Govt. of India, grand the children education allowance to the employees of NVS. The parents, whose children are studying in Navodaya should get the stipulated allowance as sanctioned by Govt of India.

34. Sanctions of Post of TGT Computer Science : Presently FCSAs are appointed on contract basis who also carry out teaching of lower class students Vidyalayas are facing several inconveniences. Appointment of TGT computer science would solve such problems.

35. Promotion of Group D Staff to Group C. As yet group D Staff have not been promoted in group C despite that several of them have required qualification. NVS has designed training for Group D employees and upgrade their ability for promoting them as Group C employees. Many of them have already taken the required training. But still no step has been taken to promote them. Hence we request you to take necessary steps and promote Group D employees as Group C employees.

36. Compensation for working on Sundays, IInd Saturdays and other National holidays: As the JNV staff is compelled to work on Sundays IInd Saturdays and National holidays owing to the special residential nature of the Vidyalayas it would be more appropriate to grant compensatory off for the same. Hence we request your kind self to take positive step in granting compensatory Special casual Leave or weekly off for those who work on Sundays and other holidays.

37. License Fee for non-teaching staff: Since non-teaching staff are also contributing to the proper functioning of the residential system of the Vidyalayas. License fee to be paid by them in respect of their quarters may kindly be avoided.

38. Appointment of three Lab attendants: Though it was informed by the Ex Commissioner of NVS that appointment of three Lab attendants for the three labs would be done, no action has been taken in this regard. Hence a favourable action must be taken in this regard at the earliest.
39. Stop contract post: Takes steps for direct and permanent appointment in the place of vacant and contract posts.
40. Uniform time Schedule: To Form Common and uniform time table and to implement the same to all the Vidyalayas.
41. MP Hall & Play Ground: Construct Multi Purpose Hall (MP Hall) and Play ground in all the Vidyalayas.
42. Welfare schemes: To implement welfare Societies and different welfare schemes of Govt. of India

43. Job offer on compassionate grounds: Extend an opportunity to one of the members of the families of those NVS staff who die while on service a job on compassionate ground, suiting their qualification.

44. Special Duty Allowance: Extend SDA to all those staff who work in North East and all hard & difficult stations.
45. Increase CL: Existing number of CL should be increased 8 to 12.

46. Provide full furnished quarters: Provide full furnished quarters for NVS staff.
47. Generator: Generator connection for staff quarters also.

48. Benevolent fund: An amount equal to one day salary of all staff may be collected and may be safely kept at the Vidyalaya level. Later, a defined contribution may be sent to that staff who is in such necessity with an intimation to NVS.

49. Transportation of deceased body of NVS staff: All steps may be taken to transport the body of those deceased staff from their work place to their native at NVS expenditure.

50. Increasing the retirement age of NVS Teachers up to 65 years :
Like Colleges, Medical Colleges and University Teachers, the age of retirement of NVS Teachers should be extended from 60 to 65 years.

Sir, the above grievances of the staff have been represented by AINVSA several times for your kind favourable action. However reddressal of these grievances is still awaited. This has damaged the morale of the staff all over India. Since high degree of commitment and morale are inevitable to keep a system like ours to continue to attain better momentum and progress, timely reddressal of staff problems is essential.

Sub: Representation for inappropriate re-fixation of pay- reg

(ii) NVS RO Pune letter No. Ref No.5-VI PAY/NVS(PR)2009,dated: 25/8/2009

Hon’ble Sir,
I regret to inform your honour that I am displeased and grieved with my inappropriate fixation of pay in Jan 2006 , as it is not done as per the 6th pay Commission directions. Furthermore, I am of the view that the step up done by NVS RO Pune vide Office order, cited above in Ref (iv), is not at all satisfactory and not in compliance with CCS(RP) Rules,2008

I have joined NVS on 19-01-2001 in the capacity of TGT English in the pay scale Rs5500-175-9000. My existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 is Rs 6200, which has been fixed by the samiti as Rs 11540 (exclusive of grade pay) in the year 2006 .I have constraint that the Pay in the pay band afer including benefit of bunching in the pre-revised scale of Rs 5500-9000 should be Rs.13310 and not Rs 11540.

I would like to humbly draw your kind attention to the fact that the grade pay of teachers have had been upgraded from 4200 to 4600 for TGTs; upgraded to 4800 for PGTs etc. Subsequently, teaching fraternity’s pay scale had been upgraded by the 6th Pay Commission. It hails in the category “ where a post has been upgraded” as per CCS(RP) Rules,2008 . Therein Column4 and Column6 of the table in Section II of PartB named “Revised Pay Scales for Certain Categories of Staff “ clearly shows these upgradations.

Since the upgradation of teaching staff, Principal etc was recommended later on by the 6th Pay Commission, it has not been included in the list of 40 fitment tables. NVS should prepare separate Fitment tables for these posts with the provision of bunching done in the manner seen in tables 5 to 8 for upgradation of GroupD. An appropriate fitment table made by DELTA (“Delta Educationists for Legal and Teaching Assistance”) organisation
is enclosed herewith as Annexure for your perusal and consideration. We pray and shewth that the basic pay of the TGTs in NVS should be fixed in accordance with this table. KVS have already implemented the table made by DELTA ( PRTs (Annexure enclosed).

I must implore further that bunching has not been done by NVS for the seniors. Let me quote Note2A depicted below sub-rule1 of Rule 7 of CCS(RP)Rules,2008,as under:

Note2A: Where a post has been upgraded as a result of the recommendations of the Sixth CPC as indicated in Part B or Part C of the First Schedule to these Rules, the fixation of pay in the applicable pay band will be done in the manner prescribed in accordance with Clause(A)(i) and (ii) of Rule 7 by multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86 and rounding the resultant figure to the next multiple of ten. The grade pay corresponding to the upgraded scale as indicated in Column6 of Part B or C will be payable in addition. Illustration 4A in this regard is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Clause A(ii) of sub-rule 1 of Rule 7 of CCS(RP) Rules,2008 that…. “Where, in fixation of pay, the pay of Government servants drawing pay at two or more consecutive stages in an existing scale gets bunched, that is to say, gets fixed in the revised pay structure at the same stage in the pay band, then for every two stages so bunched, benefit of one increment shall be given so as to avoid bunching of more than two stages in the revised running pay bands. For this purpose, the increment will be calculated on the pay in the pay band. Grade pay would not be taken into account for the purpose of granting increments to alleviate bunching

Albeit clause A(i) has been implemented by NVS, it has sidelined Clause A(ii).The latter clearly defines what’s bunching and how to do it. Illustration 4A should be referred for further clarification.

• For instance Rs 5500 and Rs 5675 basic should be bunched and the Revised pay in Pay Band-2 would be Rs12540 for both the scales. Rs5850 and Rs6025 basic would be bunched together and the Revised pay in Pay Band-2 would be Rs12920 for both these scales. Rs 6200 and Rs 6375 bunched to Rs 13310 as the Revised pay in Pay Band-2 and so on…[NB:3% of 12540=376 rounded off to 380. Rs.12540+380=Rs.12920 etc ]
• Now Grade pay of Rs 4600 should be added to this. For the 1st case, it would be Rs12540+ Rs4600= Rs17140 . For second case Rs12920+Rs4600 = Rs17520 etc.
NB: Kindly refer the fitment table enclosed herewith to comprehend these calculations.

Note2A, mentions, inter alias, that for posts upgraded by recommendations of 6thCPC, it should be done as explained in Illustration4A

How Illustration 4A could be applied in my case?
I have joined NVS on 19-01-2001 in the capacity of TGT English in the pay scale Rs5500-175-9000. My existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 is Rs 6200.( as per Sr. No4 of Illustration 4A). Now,as per Sr No5 of Illustration 4A , my pay after multiplication by a factor of 1.86 would be Rs 11532(Rounded off to Rs 11540). That is my pay in the Pay Band PB-2 would be Rs11540.(Sr.No6 of Illustration 4A).But vide Sr No 7 of Illustration 4A, above, Pay in the pay band afer including benefit of bunching in the pre-revised scale of Rs 5500-9000 should be Rs.13310 and not Rs 11540


Here, we know that, vide SectionII of Part A of the First Schedule of CCS(RP)Rules,2008 the Entry Scale for the direct recruits those having grade pay Rs 4600 is fixed as Rs 12540. Hence Rs 5500 and Rs 5675 would be bunched in the Pay Rs12540 in the new Pay Band. Rs 5850 and Rs6025 would be bunched to Rs12920 as Pay in the Pay Band( 3%of Rs.12540=Rs376 rounded off to Rs380. Rs12540+Rs380=Rs12920).Similarly Rs6200 and Rs6375 would be bunched to Rs.13310. (3%of Rs.12920=Rs388 rounded off to Rs390. Rs12920+Rs390=Rs13310

As per Sr.No 8 of Illustration 4A, the grade pay attached to the scale of Rs5500-9000 is Rs4600. Thereupon, the revised basic pay - total of pay in the pay band and grade pay would be Rs.17910( Rs13310+Rs4600=Rs17910) as on 1.1.2006(.(Sr.No9 of Illustration 4A).But NVS has fixed it to Rs16140( Rs11540+Rs4600=Rs16140)

Thus, a separate fitment table should be made in this manner vide Sr No.7 of Illustration 4A and ClauseA(ii) of sub-rule1 of Rule 7 of CCS(RP)Rules,2008.

It is humbly requested that my basic pay should be fixed as Rs.17910(Rs.13310+Rs4600 = Rs.17910.) as on 1.1.2006. Increment should be released in July 2006, amounting to Rs18450 as on 1.7.2006 . It is proposed that if an employee has completed six months service during a particular year, he should be entitled to get his increment on Ist July.

Notwithstanding this act of bunching, even if my basic pay is compared to any junior TGT English joined NVS in 2006, then there is a difference of Rs 1000 in the basic pay fixation., explained as under:

I was a drawing a basic of 6200 (old Basic) as on 01 Jan 2006 at JNV Kodinar. As per the revised pay band ,I was given a basic pay of Rs.11540/- with a grade pay of Rs. 4600/- accumulating to Rs.16140/-. Whereas Mr. Prakash Kumar Dash a junior employee of TGT English cadre posted at JNV Kokrajhar, Assam of NVS, RO Shillong was drawing, as per revised pay band, a basic pay of Rs.12540 with a grade pay of Rs. 4600 accumulating to Rs. 17140 in the year 2006. So there is a difference of Rs.1000 in the pay fixation itself. Consequent upon my continuing service, more than 6 months during July 2006, increment should be released in the same year -- though not done in case of this aforesaid direct recruit employee.

As there was no direct recruitment in the year 2006 in Pune Region or in any other region except Shillong Region, the case of junior TGTs /direct recruits of Shillong region in the year 2006 should be taken into consideration, for stepping up of seniors on case-to-case bases ; in case bunching not admissible by NVS. These new recruits are actually drawing more than seniors. Staff in some regions should not be not be getting less than other region, for no fault of theirs---- in accordance with the principles of natural justice.

I would be highly obliged for a prompt re-consideration by the NVS Hqrs officials in this connection.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

SCRAP M.O.D Duty --- a request to the Commissioner by AINVSA


AINVSA/CEC/2011-12/20 Dated 15nd July,,2011
The Commissioner
Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti
A-28,Kailash Colony, New Delhi-110048
Sub : Functions of Master On Duty-reg.
In response to the letter F.No2-18/2011-NVS(SA.) dated 11th July, 2011 circulated by NVS HQ in its official website relating to role and functions of Master on Duty (M.O.D) in JNVs with the intention to enforce accountability on teachers we would like to bring the following facts to your kind attention:
The MOD duty was introduced in Navodaya Vidyalayas during the period when Vice-Principal posts were not constituted and also when most of the Navodaya Vidyalayas were functioning in temporary buildings with limited infrastructure. The practice has been continued since then even when regular Vice-Principal is posted in all Vidyalayas and almost all Navodaya Vidyalayas are functioning in permanent buildings with sufficient infrastructure.
The purpose of MOD has become redundant as there are two administrators, Principal and Vice Principal in each Vidyalaya to look after the functioning of the School. For all other administrative management, various committees such as M&R Committee, CCA Committee, Purchase Committee, Mess Committee, etc. are constituted with teaching staff as its members and that the system functions smoothily and effectively.
Hence the monitoring of the day to day activities of the Vidyalaya is a sole and whole responsibility of Principal and Vice Principal only and as such there is no need to impose their basic duties and responsibilities upon teachers who are otherwise burdened heavily with other academic and House related work. There is no justification what so ever to delegate the basic duties and responsibilities of Principal and Vice Principal to the Teachers. Also it has been a practice of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti to punish MOD of the day, if any untoward incident happens in the school. It has been used only as a tool to victimise a teacher in such cases over the years.
Hence it is requested that MOD duty system may henceforth be scrapped with immediate effect. AINVSA looks forward to a speedy action in this regard, failing which the teachers may be compelled to boycott MOD Duty from 1st August, 2011.
Thanking You

Yours Faithfully

The Hon`ble Commissioner
Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti
New Delhi

Sub: functions of Master on Duty – request to scrap MOD-reg

We are happy to note that Samiti is trying to streamline certain things which have not received their due attention in the last two decades – the drafting of rules for allotment of residential quarters being one of them. The latest is the circulation of the MOD duties and reports to bring ‘uniformity’ in the schools. In this the Samiti has rationalised the exploitation of teachers from morning 5.30 a.m. to evening 10.30p.m. nonstop! But at the end of the end day what matters most to it is report submitted by the MOD.
As usual Samiti thinks for staff and acts for them. It decides how much of extra work is to be extracted from them unilaterally as it is sure of the uncomplaining compliance and unreserved obedience of the staff. The teachers are dumb cows and their role is only to receive orders and silently implement them. An ‘elite management’ never does anything wrong.
The MOD was introduced over a decade ago. The purpose behind it was to assist the Principal and monitor certain sensitive areas for the effective running of the vidyalaya. In the absence of clear guidelines the defining of duties was left to the discretion of the Principals. In one school a single teacher was forced to perform MOD duties from Sunday to Saturday and in another school the teacher on MOD duty was to sumbit a 16 page report at the end of his duty. These are just only two examples of excesses committed by some over enthusiastic principals in the name of running the vidyalayas effectively. In all schools the teachers perform the MOD duties in addition to their regular teaching duties and other duties like HMs/AHMs, Class Teachers or incharges of various committees. In schools where Principals are least sympathetic to the personal life and freedom of teachers, the sincere performing of the MOD duties leaves the teachers dog-tired at the end of the day. As records matter the most to the administrators, in most schools the role of the MOD is relegated to submitting a report.
The Association is unable to comprehend the rationale behind engaging a teacher 17 hours non-stop. Even lady teachers are not exempted. Now teachers must skip classes to discharge the MOD duties as laid out in the circular. Whether the management wants the MOD to perform his teaching duties in addition to the MOD duties is not clear from the circular. As every teacher is likely to get the MOD work twice in a month, their academic work is likely to suffer. Besides, does Samiti expect a teacher who did 17 hours of work the previous day to perform his regular duties effectively on the following day? Does the Samiti expect the lady teachers also to be up and present on the grounds at 5.30 in the morning and go to bed only after 10.30 at night after taking the roll call of all houses? Are the teachers inexhaustible machines?

All the duties of the MOD are supervisory in nature. They oversee/monitor the work of all other staff – there is hardly any new job for them to do. The PT teachers, in fact, take attendance at the beginning of their morning and evening sessions. The morning assembly is conducted in the presence of teachers, vice-principal and principal. The breakfast and other meal time are supervised by the HMs/AHMs. The remedial classes/supervisory classes are conducted by the concerned teachers. The night roll call is taken by the HMs. The duty of the MOD is to oversee all these and ‘report’. The 6-page report hardly reflects the spirit behind the introduction of the MOD system. By reducing the teacher’s role to gathering the list of present and absent teachers and students at various places and various times house-wise/gender-wise, it has made the ‘true purpose’ behind the imposition of this duty on teachers very clear – i.e. to physically check the presence and absence of teachers and students on campus. By and large the MOD steps into the shoes of a non-existent assistant to the vice-principal and the principal. Thanks to the exemplary obedience of the Navodya staff and their clever handling by the management the coffers of the central government will remain safe.
The Samiti seems to put aside the primary functions of teachers as ‘running’ the vidyalyas has become its primary concern. The CCE introduced by the CBSE demands a lot of teachers’ attention to their work as most of them are not well-equipped to deal with the challenges and not trained enough. Against the middleclass background of teachers and a very ordinary training imparted to them before they join the profession, the holistic development of child has become a challenge now. The elite management shows its disregard for the CCE by still setting benchmarks for teachers and ordering them to meet the targets fixed, ignoring the difficulties of teachers who work in educationally backward areas. Comparisons are made and teachers are served memos for their ‘inability’. The need of the hour is to revamp the system, prepare the teachers to cope up with the challenges posed by the CCE, encourage honesty and show the world that learning is fun at Navodaya Vidyalayas and young Navodayans are a pride of the nation. Is the Samiti gearing itself to providing proper guidance and extending a helping hand to the schools in this direction? What is it that worries it the most?
Do we need one more supervisor over the staff who spend half their time on the campus only supervising? Doesn’t it shows the absence of trust and the failure of the system to nurture a culture where staff of all cadres perform the duties expected of them sincerely? Does this kind of supervision for record’s sake ensure efficiency and effective functioning of the school? Does this not provide a chance to a few insensible principals to overexploit the staff?
The staff of NVS have had enough. The Association requests the Samiti not to take the silent compliance of teachers for granted any more. It opposes any attempt to overburden the teachers further. Hence, it demands the dispensing of MOD system forthwith as the soundness of a structure does not depend on the growing number of supervisors.
Thanking you
Yours sincerely
