Sanction of post of Sub-Staff for Vidyalaya Library & Computer Laboratory.
A provision for sub- Staff in KV Library has been made in Library policy. The library policy of KVS has been approved by BOG KVS in its meeting held on 01.07.2014. Further course of action for moving a proposal for sanction of post of Sub Staff would be taken up by KVS.

Review of departmental promotion policy for teaching cadre, with AIKVTA representation on any such review committee:-
Departmental promotion for teachers in KVS is a myth, not available to senior teacher even with 15 to 20 years of experience in the Grade .The reason being the introduction of selection promotion policy in place of non-selection promotion policy which was in force earlier. We do not have problem with selection promotion policy as long as the tests conducted to evaluate the suitability of teachers in the higher post is limited to a qualifying cut marks rather than a as per merit list position. Written test may serve the limited purpose of evaluating the content knowledge of the examinees but cannot evaluate The teaching techniques and effectiveness of teaching in a class room situation. Senior teachers by virtue of their experience prove to be better teachers than “more informed on content” teachers. Hence promotion policy should be modified to accommodate both the experience and content knowledge by fixing a suitable cut mark in the tests so that those who clear that cut marks may get promotion as per seniority. Even if KVS might have undertaken some review of promotion policy, but AIKVTA was not invited to put forth its views before it. Hence, KVS should reconsider review of promotion policy in the light of AIKVTA view points & with AIKVTA participation in any such endeavour.
The Committee constituted for the purpose of examining the issue to review the Deptt. promotion policy of teachers has been considered and recommended to continue with the present method limited Departmental Exam. The Association has been informed vide letter No. F.11055/14/2013/
KVS/RPS/1421 dated 25.09.2014.
In view of reply submitted by KVS and deliberations, the agenda is dropped.

Promotional avenues for TGTs (WET/ PET/ARTS/Sans) & Librarian by introducing additional subjects in + 2 Classes and TGT grade to Music Teachers:-
TGTs (W.E.T,P.E.T,ART) and Librarians do not have promotional avenues and KVS should Introduce additional elective subjects at plus to level in those subjects to facilitate creation of PGT posts and facilitate promotion of those teachers.
Music teachers are the most neglected of the staff serving the Kendriya Vidyalayas. The essential qualification prescribed for recruitment to the post of Music Teacher Corresponds to  TGTs, but they are given PRT post. They train secondary and higher secondary students for all sorts of cultural functions held in the Vidyalaya, for Social Science exhibitions, Annual day celebration, to welcome and entertain VIPs visiting the Vidyalayas apart from taking regular period in Primary Classess. In NCT Delhi Schools and many other Govt. School they are given TGT grade but KVS put them in Primary Scale. It is not exaggeration of facts if we say the Music Teachers in KVS are illegally exploited, they draw the salary of PRT grade and we are compelled to work with secondary and higher Secondary students.
The proposal for removal of 20% ceiling has been taken up with Ministry on 14.6.2014 which is still under examination with the Ministry of HRD. A reminder has been issued vide letter N0.F.18-3/92-KVS (Admn-l)/Vol.lll dated 20.10.2014.
The progress may be submitted in next JCM.

Extension of CGHS facilities to KV teachers similarly as being extended to KVS(HQ) and KVS(Regional Office,) staff and extension of CGHS facility to KVS employees at par with retired GOI employees:-
Teachers should also be granted CGHS facility as is being provided to KVS HQ and Regional Office Staff. The CGHS benefits available to GOI employees after their retirement should also be available to retired KVS employees as is being extended to NCERT employees.
As directed by Chairperson, JCM , the matter regarding extension of CGHS facilities to all the serving and retired employees of KVS has been taken up with the Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare by the Secretary (SE&L), MHRD vide D.O. letter No. 11086/01/2012- KVSHQ(Admn.ll) dated 09.07.2014. Moreover, CGHS authorities vide their OM No.F.7-1/2013- CGHS/
C&P/Part/3409 dated 09.07.2014 has informed that the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has  agreed to provide the CGHS facilities to the pensioners/family pensioners and retired employees of the
Statutory/Autonomous bodies on cost to cost basis, who’s serving counterparts are already covered by CGHS medical facilities. They will be entitled to OPD facilities and medicines from CGHS Wellness Centres in Delhi/ NCR only.
After deliberation at length, the Chairperson directed that the committee constituted for the purpose may give its recommendations regarding proposals received for medical claim policy.

During the deliberations, the General Secretary KVPSS cited the case of Shri S. S. Dahiya a non¬teaching employee of KV, who is availing the facility of CGHS. The Chairperson directed that KVS should examine the case and submit the report in the next JCM.

Grant of higher pay scale and/or Financial incentive to KV teachers.

The 80th BOG Meeting has deliberated in detail on the point and it has been desired by the Chairman that a Committee under the Chairmanship of Vice Chairman may be constituted to look into the matter. As per the record available with AIKVTA neither any such committee was ever finalized though proposed nor, any meeting was ever held to discuss the issue. However, it was informed by the Govt, vide letter dated 2009 that since the revision of pay as per the 6th C.P.C. for the teachers has taken place recently the proposal for granting higher pay structure and/or financial incentive io the teachers will be looked into at a later stage. The AIKVTA is of opinion that now proposal may please be taken into account in the true spirit it has been discussed in BOG.
The Secretary, 7tn CPC invited Commissioner, KVS, to submit the issues pertaining to KVS before the 7th CPC. Accordingly on 20.07.2014 the Commissioner, KVS attended the meeting with the 7th CPC and submitted the request of KVS taking care of the issues raised by association. Hence may be dropped.
In view of the action taken by KVS, the agenda is dropped.

Payment of salary to all the new recruitees for the summer vacations exempting the condition of completion of 6 months prior to the beginning of the summer vacations.

Teachers being the vacational staff are entitled for one vacation of 50 days and 2 breaks of total of 20 days. Non-payment of salary to the new recruitees, if they do not complete 6 months prior to the summer vacation not only put them in financial constraints but also regularization of their services for the period of summer vacations comes under big question mark. It is suggested that the salary for the summer vacation may be released to the new recruitees as soon as they complete 6 months of their regular service in KVS, as was prevailing earlier prior to 2005.
The committee in its meeting held on 13.06.2014 has finalized its recommendation and the same will be put up as agenda before the Finance Committee and BOG KVS in its ensuing meetings.
The progress may be reported to next JCM.

KVS has set up a PR Cell to submit applications regarding transfers/ promotional modifications/ place of posting/other service matters where the teachers have to personally visit and submit their applications. It is very inconvenient particularly for the lady teachers who are working far away from Delhi to travel for 48 hours to submit an application which are usually thrown into dustbin. Officers of KVS consider it below their dignity to meet the teachers and listen their grievances. In the promotional posting no criteria has been followed regarding the placement of the teachers. A few teachers have been posted about 2000-2500 Kms away from their KVs inspite of the
vacancies in their own KVs and at the same station. Why have the teachers not posted
in the nearby places where posts are still lying vacant? It is tantamount to mental
harassment of the K.V.teachers. Under these circumstances, what Kind of
performance do you expect from the KV teachers in the classroom?
1641 representations related to transfer/
modification were received through new e-mail ID and all the representations are disposed of.
After deliberation, it has been decided to drop the agenda. The chairperson directed KVS to continue the said email ID to facilitating the employees to submit their grievance.

Grant of Selection Scale to teachers having higher qualification irrespective of the stream/ subject

The selection scale to the teachers of Kendriya Vidyalaya was Introduced vide Dept of Education MHRD Govt Of India letter No.F.5-180/86- UT.1 dated 12"1 August 1987, which speaks that for grant of selection scales to PRT and TGT it will be required to obtain higher qualification..,, but does not speaks of any specific subject combinations/ Subject in Graduation /Post Graduation. As per the spirit, and to check the stagnation, having higher qualification is sufficient for being eligible for the grant of Selection Scale, if required, specially on the facts that teachers are actually/ Practically getting only one upgradation after 12 years, second one being the misnomer.
The matter is still under examination with MHRD.
In view of the deliberations, the Chairperson directed KVS to re-examine the issue and report in next JCM.

Grant of Service benefits viz. Confirmation, Senior Scale and other benefits to the teachers of Bhubaneswar Region, under the Perview of CBI Case No RC.36(A)/96 against two members of the selection board.
Selection of the teachers was made in the year 1993 in KVS RO Bhubaneshwar and the CBI had registered a case No.RC.36(A)/96 against the Chairman & Member secretary of selection Board for selection of primary Teachers on the basis of source of information relating to the allegation of gross abuse of their official position in -making the appointments of PRT in various KV under Bhubneshwar Region.

It is clear from the record that no departmental action has been initiated or is pending against the teachers as on today and there is also no pending criminal case but the teachers are not getting their service benefits ie. Confirmation, senior Scale etc., which may be considered accordingly, and without any further delay.
As per the status received from the DC KVS RO Bhubaneshwar, in 0ctober2014 the matter is being examined.

Re-introduction of transfer on mutual basis and against no taker vacancies - The matter already approved by the Board of Governors, KVS.
It is submitted that earlier a Committee constituted for the purpose had examined the issue and recommended that transfer against No Taker Vacancy may not be introduced in the overall interest of the organization.

It is submitted that transfers against No Taker vacancy earlier was operated throughout the year which affected the studies of students. It was discontinued to minimize administrative work load as well as to misuse of sanctity of transfer guidelines as it was noticed that teachers were asking 5 to 8 times transfer against No Taker vacancies either to break station seniority or to avoid posting to KVs in hard/very hard/NE stations. The genuine claims of actual contenders were got affected even after completion of their tenure in hard/very hard/NE stations. Hence, it should not be re-introduced.

Limited Dept. Exam Eligibility criteria Experience should be counted up to the last date of closing of filling up form (not 1st January) or up to 1st April of the session.
Limited Deptt. Examination is a fast track promotion, therefore the eligibility conditions applicable to promotions on seniority basis hold good for promotion through Limited Deptt. Examination. Viz. eligibility will be examined as on 1st January/1st April of that particular year of vacancy as per DOPT rules.

Office bearers of recognized association should be given relaxation in teaching period because of their workload as is given to HM/ Vice Principal / Principal.
Principals/vice-Principals/HM have regular administrative duties and hence lesser teaching periods are also allotted to them. However, such relaxation is neither possible nor desirable for office bearers of recognized Associations.
It is not possible to accept the demand of association. However, the efforts are being made by KVS to fill the vacant posts. Hence, dropped.

Annual transfer form should have a column mentioning the shift option viz 1st shift or 2nd shift.
It is submitted that some of the Kendriya Vidyalayas are run in double shift i.e. 1st shift or 2nd shift. As per the transfer guidelines, an employee can apply for request transfer against clear vacancies either for intra station or inter station transfer. There is no provision for transfer for a particular shift as transfers are generated as per the computer software developed by the EDP cell of KVS. It has been noticed that most of the teachers
wants to work-1st  shift only: If the transfers are generated as per shift then most of the teachers will apply for 1st shift and they may get their transfer in 1st shift and there will be shortage of teachers in 2nd shift which will affect the studies of the students. Hence, it is not feasible to have a column of 1st  shift or 2nd shift in the annual transfer application form in the overall interest of KVS.
The suggestion is noticed and will be examined while revising the transfer guidelines. Dropped from here.

Staffing pattern
The decision of the JCM held in the year 2000 and approved by the then Hon’ble Vice Chairperson has not been revoked or put up before the BOG of KVS and hence necessary further action is required to be taken by KVS in this regard.
It was informed to Association in JCM dated 04.02.2014 that in case they want to submit anything in response to present staffing norms they may submit a fresh proposal. No proposal is received so far.
Dropped in view of ATR point no. 5 (10) above.

Regional offices and ZIET staff sanction pattern
Since there are norms available for staff sanction pattern -a work study should be done.

Duty Allocation
KEVINTSA objects to the current duty allocation order issued by KVS, which has been done mechanically without taking into account the ground realities prevailing in KVs/KVS ROs.
In the JCM dated 21.02.2013 the association raised objection against work distribution done by KVS. The Chairperson JCM directed them to submit their views on the said order to KVS if any in writing. But nothing is received so far.

Promotion to erstwhile NTS to teaching posts Was dropped in The JCM. But since stagnation is persisting in all the cadres of non-teaching staff and since already reservations are provided to SC/ST/PH candidates, the Non- Teaching Staff may be provided opportunity to be posted against teaching posts, on probation. Appointment of non - teaching staff will not erode the standard of teaching in KVS but the KVS experience of the non-teaching staff is required to be tapped and if need be in-service training/orientation training may be conducted and then the non-teaching staff inducted to teaching profession.
There is no provisions for non-teaching staff working in Kendriya Vidyalayas to be posted on promotion against teaching posts. However, non-teaching staff if having educational and other essential qualification as per Recruitment Rules of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan can compete through Direct Recruitment for appointment to teaching posts.
Dropped

Re-employment of non-teaching staff until appointment/transfer of a non-teaching to that post.
Due to scarcity of staff prevailing in KVs/KVS ROs/KVS ZIETs, all the retired non-teaching staff may be retained in that office until a regular incumbent to the post is appointed/ transferred on the basis the consolidated pay and as engaged by KVS, HQ and KVS, ROs. KVS, HQ had offered 30,000/- consolidated pay for contracting an Accountant for AEP Scheme of KVS, HQ. The same consolidated pay is proposed to be extended to the NTS reemployed after retirement against the vacancies.

Representation of representative of association in BOG/GB of KVS
The matter was dropped. However since BOG is the competent authority under article 11 of the Education Code, representation of KEVINTSA is essential or permission may be given to KEVINTSA representatives to meet the members of the BOG to discuss matters pertaining to the non-teaching staff working in KVS
The issue was discussed and dropped in the JCM held on 21.02.2013 but the matter has again been submitted as an Agenda item for JCM Meeting schedule to be held on 28.10.2014.

A Committee was constituted under the chairmanship of JC(Trg.), KVS. After detailed discussion the Committee was of the view that no member of any service association be inducted/ nominated in the Board of Governors of KVS as JCM is the appropriate forum.

Promotion to the post of Section Officer
Adhoc Promotions may be taken up, as per DOPT guideline, when recruitment rules are under review or due to any other reason (in the instant case as the matter has been appealed by KVS in the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala. Now when LDE has been incorporated w.e.f. 2012- 13 and
2013-14. be the situation if further the promotion for the vacancies prior to 2011 is incorporated after the result of LDE then the Senior will become junior in the Seniority list and lead to litigations? It is pertinent to note that the favourable decision of the Hon’ble CAT, Ernakulam Bench in matter of seniority of assistants working in KVS has neither been stayed nor reversed by the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala and hence the seniority list of Assistants as on 01.01.2004 prevails and promotion is to be taken immediately, pertaining the vacancies that arose from 2008 to 2014.
The adhoc promotion from the post of Assistant to the post of Section Officer was taken up as per the Recruitment Rule effective from 1.8.2008 but as the court case regarding Seniority of Assistants was pending before the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala, the promotions could not be done.
