Revision of Pension

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare
New Delhi-110003
Dated the 27th October,1997

Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Fifth Central Pay Commission Revision of pension of pre-1996 pensioners/family pensioners etc.
The undersigned is directed to say that in pursuance of Government’s decision on the recommendations of Fifth Central Pay Commission, sanction of the President is hereby accorded to the regulation, with effect from 1.1.1996, pension/ family pension of all the pre-1996 pensioners/ family pensioners in the manner indicated in the succeeding paragraphs.
These orders apply to all pensioners/family pensioners who were drawing pension/family pension on 1.1.1996 under the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, CCS (Extraordinary Pension) Rules and the corresponding rules applicable to Railway pensioners and pensioners of All India Services including officers of the Indian Civil Service, retired from service on or after 1.1.1973.
Separate orders will be issued by the Ministry of Defence in regard to Armed Forces pensioners/family pensioners.
These orders do not also apply to retired High Court and Supreme Court Judges and other Constitutional/Statutory Authorities whose pension etc. is governed by separate rules/orders.
3.1 In these orders :
  1. Existing pensioner or Existing Family pensioner means a pensioner who was drawing/entitled to pension/family pension on 31.12.1995.
  2. Existing pension means the basic pension inclusive of commuted portion, if any, due on 31.12.1995. It covers all classes of pension under the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 as also Disability Pension under the CCS (Extraordinary Pension) Rules and the corresponding rules applicable to Railway employees and Members of All India Services.
  3. Existing family pension means the basic family pension drawn on 31.12.1995 under the CCS (Pension) Rules and the corresponding rules applicable to Railway employees and Members of All India Services.
  4. Existing Dearness Relief means the relief due to pensioners/family pensioners upto average CPI 1510.
The pension/family pension of existing pre-1996 pensioners/family pensioners will be consolidated with effect from 1.1.1996 by adding together:-
  1. The existing pension/family pension.
  2. Dearness Relief upto CPI 1510 i.e. @ 148%, 111% and 96% of Basic Pension as admissible vide this Department's O.M. No. 42/8/96-P&PW(G) dated 20.3.1996.
  3. Interim Relief I.
  4. Interim Relief II.
  5. Fitment weightage @ 40% of the existing pension/family pension.
    The amount so arrived at will be regarded as consolidated pension/family pension with effect from 1.1.1996. The upper ceiling on pension/family pension laid down in the Department of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare Office Memorandum No 2/1/87-PIC.II dated 14.4.1987 has been increased from Rs. 4500/- and Rs. 1250 to 50% and 30% respectively of the highest pay in the Government (The highest pay in the Government is Rs. 30,000 since 1.1.1996). Since the consolidated pension will be inclusive of commuted portion of pension, if any, the commuted portion will be deducted from the said amount while making monthly disbursements.
Some of the existing pensioners who retired between 31.3.1985 and 31.12.1985 are in receipt of personal pension. The said personal pension will continue to be granted as a separate element and will not be merged into the pension as consolidated above.
Since the consolidated pension/family pension arrived at as per paragraph 4.1. includes dearness relief upto average index level 1510, dearness relief will be admissible thereon only beyond index average 1510 in accordance with the revised scheme of dearness relief for which orders are being issued separately. The two instalments of dearness relief sanctioned earlier from 1.7.1996 and 1.1.1997 in this Department's Office Memorandum No. 42(8)/P&PW(G)/96 dated the 12th September, 1996 and Office Memorandum No. 42(2)P&PW(G)/97 dated the 3rd April, 1997 respectively shall be adjusted against revised Dearness Relief becoming due on the consolidated pension/family pension.
The amount already paid on account of Interim Relief III sanctioned vide this Department’s Office Memorandum No. 42/18/95-P&PW(G)-Vol.II dated 6.9.1996 will be recovered from the arrears becoming due on consolidation of pension/family pension as in para 4.1. above and sanction of Dearness Relief on consolidated pension/family pension.
Where the consolidated pension/family pension in terms of paragraph 4 above works out to an amount less than Rs. 1275/- the same shall be stepped upto Rs. 1275/-. This will be regarded as pension/family pension with effect from 1.1.1996. In the case of pensioners who are in receipt of more than one pension, the floor ceiling of Rs. 1275/- will apply to the total of all pensions taken together.
Where the disability pension under the CCS(EOP) Rules, is drawn in addition to invalid pension under the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972, the minimum limit of Rs. 1275/- will apply to total of two pensions as indicated in paragraph 5.1. Where the disability pension is drawn in isolation, the minimum limit of Rs. 1275/- will apply for 100% disability. For lesser degree of disability the minimum limit will be proportionately less.
The employed/re-employed pensioners/family pensioners are not getting dearness releif on pension at present under the extant orders. In their case the notional dearness relief which would have been admissible to them but for their employment/re-employment will be taken into account for consolidation of their pension in terms of paragraph 4.1. above as if they were drawing the dearness relief. Their pay will be re-fixed w.e.f. 1.1.1996 with reference to consolidated pension becoming admissible to them. Dearness relief beyond 1.1.1996 will, however, not be admissible to them during the period of employment/re-employment.
The cases of Central Government employees who have been permanently absorbed in public sector undertakings/autonomous bodies will be regulated as follows:-
Where the Government servants on permanent absorption in public sector undertakings/autonomous bodies continue to draw pension separately from the Government, the pension of such abosrbees will be updated in terms of these orders. In cases where the Government servants have drawn one time lumpsum terminal benefits equal to 100% of their pensions and have become entitled to the restoration of one-third commuted portion of pension as per Supreme Court judgement dated 15.12.1995, their cases will not be covered by these orders.
In cases where, on permanent absorption in public sector undertakings/autonomous bodies, the terms of absorption permit grant of family pension under the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or the corresponding rules applicable to Railway employees/members of All India Services, the family pension being drawn by family pensioners will be updated in accordance with these orders.
8 All Pension Disbursing Authorities including Public Sector Banks handling disbursement of pension to the Central Government pensioners are hereby authorised to pay pension/family pension to existing pensioners/family pensioenrs at the consolidated rates without any further authorisation from the concerned Accounts Officers/Head of Office etc. A table indicating the existing pension, the consolidated pension and difference payable from 1.1.1996 is enclosed for ready reference. (Annexure I). This table may be used where the pensioner is in receipt of a single pension only. Where a pensioner is in receipt of more than one pension, consolidation may be done separately in terms of paragraph 4.1 and as indicated in pargraph 5 floor ceiling of Rs. 1275/- may be applied to total pension from all sources taken together. A suitable entry regarding the revised consolidated pension shall be recorded by the pension Disbursing Authorities in both halves of the Pension Payment Order. An intimation regarding disbursement of revised pension may be sent by the pension disbursing authorities to the Office of CPAO and Accounts Officer which had issued the PPO in the form given at Annexure-II so that the latter can update the Pension payment Order Register maintained by him. An acknowledgement shall be obtained by the Pension Disbursing Authorities from Office of CPAO and the respective Accounts Officers in this behalf.
The consolidated pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with provisions of Para 4.1. above shall be treated as final 'Basic Pension' with effect from 1.1.1996 and shall qualify for grant of Dearness Relief sanctioned thereafter in respect of following categories of pensioners/family pensioners:-
  1. Pensioners, who retired between the period from 1.1.1986 to 31.12.1995.
  2. Family pensioners, who became entitled for family pension during the period from 1.1.1986 to 31.12.1995 and were sanctioned family pension @ 30% of the last pay drawn by the deceased employee.
In case of other pensioners/family pensioners, these orders provide for revision/consolidation of pension with effect from 1.1.1996 as an interim measure only so as to provide them immediate relief and shall be subject to variation. Detailed instructions regarding fixation of their pay on notional basis/revision/consolidation of pension/family pension and issue of authorisation in this regard will be issued separately. Pending issue of detailed instructions as stated above, grant of pension/family pension to all these pensioners/family pensioners may be continued to be regulated under these orders.
The arrears on account of consolidation of pension would be paid in cash with the stipulation that where amount of arrears is less than Rs.5,000/-, it should be paid in one instalment and where it is in excess of Rs.5,000/-, it should be paid in two instalments; in the first instalment, payment should be restricted to Rs.5,000/- plus fifty percent of their balance amount of arrears.
It is considered desirable that the benefit of these orders should reach the pensioners as expeditiously as possible. To achieve this objective it is desired that all pension disbursing Authorities should ensure that the revised pension and the first instalment of arrears due to the pensioners in terms of the above orders is paid to the pensioners or credited to their account by 30th November, 1997 or before positively. Instructions regarding release of second instalment of arrears will be issued later.
In their application to the persons belonging to Indian Audit and Accounts Department these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
Ministry of Agriculture etc. are requested to bring the contents of these Orders to the notice of Controller of Accounts/Pay and Accounts Officers and Attached and subordinate Offices under them on a top priority basis. All pension disbursing offices are also advised to prominently display these orders on their notice boards for the benefit of pensioners.

(3)    No allocation of pensionary liability between Department of Central Government. - The rules in regard to allocation or sharing of the liability on account of pensionary charges of Government servants with service under more than one Department among the Departments of the Government of India including Railways, Posts and Telegraphs and Defence Departments contained in Appendix 3-B-II and B-IV to Account Code, Volume I, have been under review of the Government of India for some time. After consideration of the various issues and keeping in view the need for simplifying inter-departmental adjustments it has been decided to dispense with the system of allocation of pension. The liability for pension including gratuity will be borne in full by the Department to which the Government servant permanently belongs at the time of retirement. No recovery of proportionate pension need be made from other Central Department under whom he had served.
    It has been decided to extend the above provisions to the Union Territory Governments with or without legislature. Accordingly, there will be no allocation of leave salary/pension contribution among Central Government departments including Railways, P & T, Defence and Union Territory Governments with or without legislature.
    Clarification. - The term pension may be treated as including interim/ad hoc relief on pension for the above purpose.

    The above provision shall also cover cases of all Government servants (temporary/quasi-permanent/permanent), who have rendered technical resignation on their selection for service in another department (including Railways/P & T/Defence Departments) within the Government of India and hence the question of allocation of pension (or incidence of leave salary) between such Departments would not arise.

Subject: Payment of arrears of pension for the period 1-1-2006 to 23-9-2012

Honorable Minister Sir.
Kindly stop driving every affected individual pensioner to the Courts of law. instead extended automatically to similarly placed pensioners Court Judgment confirmed or delivered by the Apex Court as was recommended by 5th CPC also vide their Para 126.5.

Sir. with reference to then MOS (P) answer dated 12.02.2014 in Lok Sabha to UNSTARRED QUESTION NO 3406 regarding PAYMENT OF ARREARS TO PENSIONERS your kind attention is drawn to the facts that Principal CAT order dated 1. l l .2011 in OA No.655/2010 quashed clarificatory OM dated 03.10.2008 and directed to re-fix the pension of all pre-2006 retirees w.e.f. 1.1.2006. based on the Resolution dated 29.08.2008. While dismissing WP (C) No. 1535/2012 of UOI on 29-4-2013. Hon'ble Delhi High Court upheld the verdict of the CAT-PB. Dismissing SLP (C) No.23055/2013 filed by UOI against the judgement of Hon'ble Delhi High on 29-7-2013 and then Review Petition (C) No.2492/2013 on 12-11-2013 and finally Curative Petition (C) No. 126/2014 on 30-4-2014, Hon'ble Supreme Court upheld the Judgment of the Hon'ble Delhi High Court. With this CAT verdict dated 1-11-2011. referred to, has attained legal finality,

But unfortunately instead of implementing the said judgement in letter & spirit of all pre 2006 Pensioners DOP & PW going against the judgement. has taken a decision to implement it qua petitioners. 

Sir. as is admitted in the answer to Lok Sabha unstarred Q.No 3406 Honerable CAT -PB order under reference has already been implemented from an arbitrary date 24.09.2012. Thus in all legality the arrears w.e.f. 01 .01 .2006 too should he paid to all & not only to a small section of pensioners who could afford to go to the Court of law.

Sir, Bharat Pensioners Samaj in its capacity as the largest & oldest organization of C.G. Pensioners over 550 Pensioners Associations affiliated/associated to it, appeal to you to ensure correct delivery of justice by implementing the judgement under reference to all pre 2006 pensioner so that other affected Pensioners in the evening of their live are not pushed to seek justice from court of law.

We are also request you to permit inclusion of this issue in the Agenda of 25th SCOVA meeting Sheduled to be held under your Chairmanship on 24th of July 2014.

Thanking you in anticipation

Is there any undeclared ban on recent transfers for teaching and non-teaching staff?

Suggestions for Transfer Policy - guidelines

Ref. No: AINVSA/CEC/2014/ DGS/05                                                     Date:-15/07/2014

 All AINVSA Units

 The  Unit Secretaries of all Units should see to it that the staff side is consulted prior to sending the Suggestions for amendment of Transfer Policy as  demanded by the NVS Hqrs from the Principals.

Enclosed herewith is the guidelines as suggestion drafted by AINVSA. The guidelines is illustrative and not exhaustive. All the units are requested to get it forwarded by their respective Principals i.r.o the recent Circulars passed by NVS Hqrs, after making necessary changes  (mutatis mutandis).

It has come to the notice of the AINVSA office bearers that some of the Principals are very adamant and least concerned about staff welfare.  They have not conducted any staff meeting in  this respect and have send their own personal suggestion  ,without any staff consultation teaching or non-teaching. This shows sheer autocracy in this democratic country.

AINVSA is trying its level best to get an appointment with  HRD Ministry officials  once again for staff welfare.All the authorities are humbly requested to be supportive and cooperative and rethink and reconsider the benign  staff welfare measures at their level for making NVS and JNVs run smoothly in the country.

    Thanking you

   Yours faithfully

Deputy Gen. Secy. AINVSA CEC


Respected Sir,

With due respect,the teaching and nonteaching staff would like to give the following suggestions regarding some alterations to  be incorporated in the Transfer Policy of NVS; for your kind reconsideration.

1.     The mandatory period/normal tenure of ten years for request transfers should be reduced to 03 years for intra-region  and 05 years for inter-region transfer, in each region.
2.     Mutual transfers, request transfers and spouse case transfers should be allowed without any fixed  tenure.
3.     ‘Mutual transfers’ and ‘Counsellings camps’ prior to tranfers, should once again be  relived, implemented in NVS.
4.     There should be unification of spouses serving in NVS and other Cental Govt or State Govt, PSUs etc., without any terms and conditions. Spouses should be given transfers to a Vidyalaya if there are vacant posts in a Vidyalaya  without hesitation.
5.     Those who have crossed more than 10 years or whose displacement transfer points are more should be displaced and spouse transfer requests considered with utmost sympathy. Spouses should be posted  to the same station to enable them to lead a normal family life vis-à-vis the Central Govt rules. There should not be dilly-dallying about Posting of the Husband and Wife at the same station during the intermittent/in between the academic year  if  the posts are vacant or filled by contract teachers.
6.     The transfer points such as request transfer points and displacement transfer points should be displayed on the NVS website meticulously every year, prior to the execution of transfers.
7.     The TGTs  should not lose their Seniority while getting transferred to other Regions on request basis.
8.     There should not be any displacements to hard stations after 50 years for male and 40 years for female.
9.     Home town posting should be given during the  last five years of service.
10.  Those who left the station on request transfer, need not be given once again the same station again when asked for.
11.  The new amended Transfer Policy should be implemented in true letter and spirit. There ought to be transfers every year in the fixed month preferably ‘May’,  after conduction  of Counselling Camps.
12.  Third language transfers/ Rotational transfer policy as under:
a)      No transfer should be given after 45 years of age to the other states , and those in other states should be returned to their parent place/state on completion of 45 years of age.
b)      If the third language teacher  has his  ward in 10th  or 12th class, rotational transfer should not be given.
c)       Rotational transfers should also have only three years mandatory period in other states.
d)      Rotational transfers should be executed in the month of April every year.
e)      The normal tenure for Rotational transfer should be 3 years instead of 5 years.
                       f) All the  transfer benefits should be given on completion of 5 years or 3 years in other states

Thanking You

     Yours faithfully

REQUEST TO SEND MEMORANDOM TO HRD MINISTER, PM etc - the newly formed government

Dear Friends

All Teaching and Non teaching staff , irrespective of all cadres and differences are hereby requested to bring to the notice of the newly formed Govt of our Genuine demands, by sending the enclosed letter promptly to the HRD Minister.

This letter , with charter of demands therein should be sent immediately by fax, speed post, email, helplines etc to THE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA and HRD MINISTER   with immediate effect.

AINVSA requests all units to take this seriously and in a time bound manner. Copy paste the below drafting on the AINVSA Unit letter head  of your respective Vidyalayas and sent it the the HRD Minister, Commissioner, etc duly signed by all the staff

                                               LONG LIVE  AINVSA

The Hon’ble Minister for Human Resource Development,
Government of India

Sub: Submission of demands for consideration and initiating necessary action – Reg

Honourable Madam
The staff working in the 585 Navodaya Vidyalayas across the country has been facing several problems for almost three decades. Though many representations were sent to your office no positive response not even a reply in response to the letter was received .On many occasions distance and time have hampered us to meet you personally to appeal, discuss and press for an early remedial action. The Association requests you to take a serious note of the following demands for positive consideration and an early cordial solution as turning a deaf ear to such genuine issues will adversely affect the morale of the staff which, in turn, will affect the functioning of the schools.
Despite our regular demands over the last few years it is sad to note that the NVS has done very little to mitigate the problems of the staff.  Hence, the AINVSA would like to bring to your kind 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 of the CCS pension. The AINVSA has represented the matter to all important dignitaries in the present UPA government and it is time once again to vociferously voice our anguish against the injustice.
2.      10% Special Allowance to Non-Teaching staff: The AINVSA condemn the cold and discriminatory attitude of the government of India towards the non-teaching staff in Navodaya Vidyalyas who play no less pivotal role in enhancing the reputation of the NVS as a premier organization in the field of education with 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.     MACPS to teaching staff: Consequent upon the recommendations and implementation of   VICPC, 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 AINVSA demands the implementation of the same to the teaching staff also as the monetary benefits of senior scales sanctioned on completion of 12 years of service is very negligible.
4.     A proper transfer policy: Transfer policy before its implementation should have been discussed with the staff representatives through the Associations. And once executed it should go on as per the rules .In NVS the transfer policy made  was not discussed with the  Associations  and  was not properly implemented, due to which many of the staff lost the chance for transfer  last year. We have doubt the present transfer policies sovereignty .There are umpteen chances to misuse it. An acceptable policy should be made .Before the implementation of the proposed policy the points each individual is gathered should be displayed in the website to avoid misuse. Request, spouse case transfer and mutual transfers should be allowed without any fix tenure or minimum 3 years only. Ten years should not be mandatory for request transfers, but only for admin ground or done in public interest.

5.      Implementation of transfer policy should start from higher level and zero chances     of influence and bribe shall be ensured. Kindly arrange the counseling in the month of May (holidays) to facilitate maximum participation of the interested. Avoid fresh posting before the completion of transfers as not to hamper the working staff’s opportunity. No transfer should be done prior to implementation of the transfer policy.

6.     Recognition of AINVSA: The recognition of the Association has been one of the long Pending problems of the staff for over three decades. AINVSA has already submitted the 11,000 membership forms of the teaching and non-teaching staff from 25 states. Ms VrindaSarup, Additional Secretary (SE), MHRD - in the meeting with AINVSA representatives under her chairpersonship – directed the NVS to evolve a joint mechanism to consider and address the demands of staff with representatives of staff associations. Recognition of AINVSA will pave way for amicable solution of staff grievances by doing away with pseudo representation of staff side. 
7.     Two Associations with same name: As two AINVSA are working under the same label, NVS should take initiative to stop the duplicate one and recognize the registered and original Association and direct the other association to work under some other name. The required action is awaited at the earliest after a thorough verification.
8.     Staff’s should be allowed to work in their home town: NVS is the only institution which is not happy with its employees in their own home town’s .We doesn’t know how NVS is being harmed if its employees are allowed to work in their home towns.
9.     MOD’s burden should be removed from the teachers:  MOD’s are made just for the sake of reducing the burden of Principals and Vice Princpals.When teachers are having their own prescribed work and duties, like remedial and supervised studies MOD work is unnecessarily thrust on their heads for making them the scapegoats by asking them to put signature on all the bills of that day. This is something like victimization .This custom must be avoided.
10.  Payment of Salary for Strike period:  The teaching and non teaching staff working in the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas across the country went on a nationwide Indefinite Strike from 06-02-13 to 15-02-13 demanding resolution of long pending demands. The strike was called off, following the intervention of Shri Shashi Tharoor, Minister of State for HRD, Govt. of India on the evening of 15-02-13 and his assurance to us to resolve the problems in a time bound manner. The salary for the strike period has been withheld. AINVSA appeals to the Hon’ble Commissioner to condone the 10 day strike period of the staff and allow the staff payment of the salary withheld for that period. Condoning of strike period may not be an issue if NVS appreciates the fact that the staff has been compelled to sacrifice ‘billions of rest hours’ since the inception of NVS.

11. Appointment of Warden and Matron on permanent basis: The AINVSA    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 in the beginning of 2009-10 academic years.
12. Defining working hours for all categories of employees: It does not need any evidence to prove that the staff of Navodaya Vidyalayas works for longer hours than the ones defined by NVS 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.
13. Timely promotion to all staff & Conducting the departmental promotion test yearly: More than half the teaching staff has been deprived of their timely promotional opportunities because of the laid-back approach of the NVS. As a result, the staff has become less enthusiastic about promotions and accepting challenges. The NVS has failed to tap the potential of the staff at the right time which has surely blunted its weaponry. It is sad but not surprising to note how ill-prepared NVS is to implement its own policy decision. While it is expected that the departmental promotion tests are conducted yearly for the aspiring TGTS, the NVS has conducted only two in the last four years, thus dampening their hopes of a belated promotion. The AINVSA demands for the revamping of the promotion system to expedite the promotion of the deserving teaching and non-teaching staff to strengthen the system and improve the working ambience.
14. Restoration of Earned Leave to teaching staff / Vacation staff in addition to Half Pay leave: The AINVSA demands the restoration of Earned Leaves on full pay as 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. In addition VI CPC in its recommendation reduced the CL for the staff of those institutions which have five working days.Our case quite different as we work seven days a week, still our CLs were discriminately reduced to eight.
15. 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 needs.
16. 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 KVS TGTs as they suffer monetary loss in the absence of recruitment in 2006 in all the regions of the NVS except Shillong.
17.  Enhancement of HM/AHM allowance: The teachers are 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 was demanded by the AINVSA.  Hence, the AINVSA demands that the HM/AHM allowance should be raised to Rs.5000/4000.
18. Providing free education to the children of deceased staff: The AINVSA requests for providing free education to the children of staff who meet with untimely death while in service. Permission may be granted to such children to have free education from a Vidyalaya of their choice if they are of admissible age. If the child is already admitted, he/she may be allowed to pursue education till the completion of +2 courses.
19. Increasing the number of House Mothers: At present there are only two House Mothers for girls’ houses and each of them is expected to look after over 100 girl wards. The AINVSA demands for the rationale distribution of work by appointing two more Housemothers in schools where the lady teachers are available for a better care of girl students.
20. Providing Health Insurance to the Staff: It is sad to note that the NVS has not paid much attention to its staff’s health after retirement. The NVS should give serious consideration to this issue and implement a proper health insurance scheme to all its employees to enable them meet their genuine medical expenses to the fullest after superannuation.
21. Sanctioning compensatory leave for work on the Gazetted holiday(s): Of late the NVS has started a new trend of dishonoring the public/gazetted holidays. The training programmes, games and sports meets, exhibitions, etc start on gazetted holidays, thus depriving the staff of their right to avail genuine holidays. Quite often the staff is also deprived of the gazetted holidays as they are engaged in duties like escorting children for sports events, migration, etc. While planning a training programme or a sports meet the NVS should ensure that the staff is not deprived of its right to enjoy public holidays as they help them to spare their time for family which is one of the ways of lessening their stress. The NVS must sanction one compensatory leave for one public holiday he has foregone because of engagement with his/her official work.

22. Implementation of CCE in its true spirit: The NVS’s Academic Perspective Plan is a damn evidence of its misinterpretation of the NCF- 2005 and the CCE programme. While CBSE is going ahead year after year bringing about drastic changes in the teaching-learning and evaluation system, the implementation of the scheme in the Navodaya Vidyalayas shows that the NVS  isn’t ready to free its teachers from the three-decade long shackles of ‘pass percentages and  subject averages’. The NVS should abandon its outdated practices forthwith and focus its attention on what the NCF-2005 envisages. The continuation of the present practice is sure to rott the whole system with the Principals and staff left with no alternative but dilute the evaluation system to please their higher officers with high percentiles and percentages.

23. Grant of 4200 Grade Pay to Cat Asst:  Cat Asst were deprived considering the Career avenues they would have enjoyed had they been outside the NVS.  NVS should grant the grade pay of 4200 to Cat Asst considering the fact that their counter parts in other Government Organizations are given that benefit. Cat Assts in NVS have 24x7 working hours whereas their counter parts in other organizations, both private and Govt sectors have 8 hour shifts.

24. Enhancement of JNVST application scrutiny charges: The AINVSA demands for the enhancement of JNVST scrutiny charges from Rs.1 to Rs.10 in view of the heavy work load scrutiner’s discharge till the hall-tickets are dispatched and nominal rolls are re-checked before the exam.
25. Creation of PGT posts in Modern Indian Languages: It is sad to note that the demand of Modern Indian Language teachers handling +2 in the JNVS across the country for creation of a PGT post in their respective languages has not been heeded by the NVS so far. This is tantamount to exploitation of the Modern Indian Language teachers and depriving the students of their right to choose their mother-tongue as one of the languages for special study at +2 levels. Unfortunately the wonderful results the regional language teachers have been producing year after year have had no effect on the NVS.  It is high time the NVS put an end to the ill- treatment of these teachers by not sanctioning a PGT post in Modern Indian Languages. Make appointments purely on promotional basis. This will be the only way of compensating over two decade-long injustice.
26. Sanction of Bonus to teaching and non-teaching staff in Senior-Scale:  NVS has denied payment of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to PGTs in Senior Scale. As per existing GOI norms, all non-gazetted employees in Group B are eligible for payment of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus). Teaching and non-teaching staff in Senior Scale are neither gazetted employees nor Group A employees and denial of bonus to them is against the norms prescribed by the Ministry of Finance.  Bonus is not denied to staff in Senior Scale, working in KVS. NVS should grant Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to teaching and non-teaching staff in Senior Scale without any further delay.

27. Grant of 4600 Grade Pay to OS:  The post of Office Superintendent was sanctioned in the scale of pay of Rs.550-900 in Group “B” supervisory cadre in NVS. At the same time in the same sanction order and Recruitment Rule the post of Assistant/Editorial Assistant/ Statistical Assistant/ Legal Assistant were sanctioned in the scale of pay of Rs.425-800 in Group “C” cadre. The KVS considering the functional disturbances of superintendents and assistant/Audit Assistant has merged the post of Superintendent and Section Officer and granted the Grade Pay Rs.4600/-. AINVSA demands up gradation of the post of Office Superintendent as ordered by the Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi.  
28.  Reduction of Service for the post of the Principal: KVS requires 8 years of service in the grade pay of 4800 whereas NVS prescribed 12 years of service as qualifying service for the post of Principal.  NVS should consider amending the qualifying service period in line with KVS.
29. Reporting to the Vidyalaya after the Holidays: 24x7 nature of duty in NVS deprives the staff from attending to their personal obligations and staffs always look forward to Holiday Period as an opportunity to balance their professional and personal life. Demanding the staff to report to the Vidyalaya two days prior to the reopening day is not justified. A day earlier is enough for looking after the requirements for reception of the students.
30.   Conversion of Surplus Drivers to the Post of LDCs:  Due to ageing of vehicles in JNVs, the number of surplus posts has been increasing in the Vidyalaya Driver Cadre. NVS should convert such posts to LDCs so that Human Resources are productively redeployed.

31. Sanctioning more Group D staff: As the vidyalayas have been steadily growing in size it is now becoming increasingly difficult for the schools to pay attention to maintenance, health and hygiene, and safety and security with the existing two night watchmen and two chowkidar-cum sweepers. The NVS should take all steps to sanction 2 more night watchmen and 2 more chowkidar-cum-sweepers in addition to the present sanctioned posts.

32. Kindly stop rotation transfer of Regional language teachers: It is really sad to know that NVS is still continuing the rotation of regional language teachers. We still don’t know for whose satisfaction this model of transfer is still continued. Samiti can post fresh hands in distant schools and according to the vacancies available they may be brought back to the home states.  For the regional language teachers the rotation transfer is a nightmare. They never get the chance to settle down with their family.

33. Compensatory job to be given to the survivors of deceased persons:

Compensatory job to be given to the survivors of deceased persons on duty and the kith and kin of those gone on permanent disabilities while on duty.

34. Extension of benefit of Nursing Allownce :
The staffs working in Govt Hospital/Autonomous bodies are getting nursing allowance @ Rs4000/- per month as recommended by 6th Pay Commission, but the same was denied to the Staff Nurses of JNVs. Therefore Nursing Allowance as recommended by the 4th, 5th, and 6th Central Pay Commission may kindly be granted to the Staff Nurses working in JNVs w.e.f joining date.
35. Provision of atleast two posts of Nurses in every JNVs:
There should be Male Nurse in addition to the female Nurses in each JNVs and vice versa.
36. Right off the Library Books:
Kindly authorize the Principal in JNVs to right off the library books after a certain period.

Thanking you sir,
Yours sincerely
