GDS Committee report - Present TRCA as per the relevant arrear tables

GDS Committee report - Present TRCA as per the relevant arrear tables

Payment of Arrears: Since, the fixation of wages and payment as per the revised wage to GDSs in the new wage level and wage scale will be from a prospective date, the GDSs should be paid arrears from 01.01.2016 till the prospective date whichever date is fixed by the Department according to the TRCA slab/workload prior to fixation of wages in the new wage scale as per illustration given below.

Illustration 1: Consider one GDS BPM prior to fixation in new wage scales is working in 3 hours TRCA slab. The GDS BPM will be fixed in 4 hours after fixation in the new wage scale once the recommendation of the Committee is approved. He will be paid wages for 4 hours in the new scale on implementation of the recommendations of report which would be any date prospectively after submission of report. Therefore, for the period between 01.01.2016 and the date of implementation of recommendations of report, the GDS BPM will be paid arrears according 3 hours TRCA.

Illustration 2: Consider one GDS BPM prior to fixation in new wage scales is working in 3hours TRCA slab from 01.01.2016 to 31.05.2016 and then in 3.30 hours TRCA slab from 01.06.2016 to the date of implementation of recommendations of Committee. In this case, he/she will be paid arrears according to 3 hours TRCA slab from 01.01.2016 to 31.05.2016 and then arrears according to 3 hours 30 minutes from 01.06.2016 till the date of implementation of report, before he/she is fixed in new wage slab of 4 hours.

Based on above illustrations, the Committee has prepared 11 arrear tables for each existing slab the details of which are given Table 10.14.

Average increase in wages: The Committee noticed that due to rationalization of working hours and clubbing of 11 TRCA slabs in new wage scales, the average increase in wages of GDSs will be 30.22%.

Reduction in TRCA: In Tamil Nadu Circle a large number of GDSs informed the Committee that their TRCA has been reduced from higher TRCA slab to lower TRCA slab due to decrease in workload. They informed that the decrease in workload is not due to reasons which can be attributed to them. They informed to the Committee that sometime State Government withdraw some services from the post Offices and get it done through other agency. This withdrawal of service impacts GDS workload and it reduces steeply. They further informed that they have no role to play in the withdrawal of service but they are penalized for no fault of theirs. They requested the Committee to abolish the provision of reduction of TRCA from higher slab to lower slab in any circumstances.

The Committee analyzed this issue and discussed with several stakeholders and recommends that the wages of GDS should not be reduced from level 2 to level 1 in the new wage scale.

Date of implementation: The Committee recommends that date of implementation of increase of wages should be effective from 01.01.2016 as in the case of recommendation of 7th CPC for regular Central Government employees. The Committee however, recommends that placement of GDSs, other than BPMs with 3 hours and 3 hrs 45 minutes of workload in the wage scale of 10000-24470 (4 hours); BPMs with workload of 3 hours and 3hrs 30 minutes in the wage scale of 12000-29380 and BPMs with 4 hours 30 mts of workload in the wage scale of 14500 – 35480 will be done only prospectively after revision of their working hours. They will be placed at the corresponding stages with reference to the present TRCA as per the relevant arrear tables among the 11 tables given below.
