HONORARIUM FOR EXAM. DUTY

No. NDGBGOA(CE)/20/2015-04                             Date:-13-04-2015

To
     The DGOF & Chairman,
     Ordnance Factory Board,
     10-A,S.K.Bose road,
     Kolkatta.                      
                                    (Kind attention:-Member/Per,O.F.Board)                     

           Sub:- Grant of Honorarium to JWMs for Examination duties- reg.
R/Sir,
        On behalf of Central Executive committee of NDGBGOA, I would like to draw your kind attention towards the following discrepancies noticed in some factories for distribusement of Honorarium to JWM who were deployed in Examination duties for Trade Apprentice Examination  on 12-04-2015.
         Sir,  as per O.F.Board  instruction  all factories have detailed  Chargeman and JWM in invigilator duties for conduction of Trade Apprentice Examination .All the JWMs have sincerely /honestly completed their duties. But it is surprise to note that only few factories are granting honorarium to their invigilator and rest of factories have denied to pay honorarium without any specific orders of O.F.Board,Kolkata.  
        Sir, as per DOPT order No. 1711/9/85-Estt(Allowance) dtd 23-12-1985 all Head of departments has got full power of up to a maximum of Rs 2500 in each case. In case of recurring honorarium this limit applies to total of the recurring payment made to an individual in a year.  

Recently, NADP,Ambajhary have conducted Chargeman(DR) Examination in various places for which Chargeman/JWMs were deployed. Chargeman and JWMs those have performed the duty were paid honorarium. But it is surprise to note that without any specific order from O.F.Board, some of the  head of department are denying to pay the honorarium to Invigilators who have deployed for conduction of examination on 12.04.2015.
       Therefore executive committee of this Association request hon’ble DGOF/Chairman to issue instruction to all General Managers of Ordnance Factories to pay  equal honorarium to all the JWMs for performing Invigilator and other duty  for conducting Examination.
       Thanking you,
                                                                                        Yours faithfully,
                                                                                ( JAIGOPAL  SINGH )
                                                                             GENERAL SECRETARY

POSTPONE OF AGITATION PROGRAM

Dear office bearers,
Branch Chairman&Secretary and members,

          Our scheduled Dharna program on 06.04.2015 at OFBOARD has been postponed after positive response from OFB in the meeting with MEMBER/Personnel, on 01.04.2014. There was lengthy discussion on our agenda points and our important issues were addressed properly. It is the first time that OFB has made Official minutes of the meeting which will be issued to our Association in the next week. Hereafter there will be two meetings(yearly)with association for resolving the grievances. NDGBGOA has asked OFB to publish the minutes of the meeting in OFB Com net.
     The Official minutes will be published in our blog in next week.
This for information to all the members.


PRESIDENT                                      GENERAL SECRETARY

ASSOCIATION REPLY TO OFB FOR THE MEETING WITH MEMBER/PER ON 01.04.2015

No. NDGBGOA/GNL/16/2015- 03                                      Date:23-03-2015
To

     The DGOF & Chairman,
     Ordnance Factory Board,

     10-A, S.K.Bose road,                         Kind attn- DIR/IR
     Kolkata- 01.

R/Sir,
             Sub:  Peaceful Agitation Program of NDGBGOA-reg

             Ref No.1-MoD I.D.No.19 (1)2015-US(G) dated 24.02.2015
                        2. MoD I.D No.11 (1)/2014/D(JCM) dtd 10-03-2015
                        3. OFB Letter No.14/42/2012/Meeting/A/IR
                            Dated-19th March 2014(Erroneous dated letter)

               Reference Cited (Ref no.3), it is deeply regretted that O.F. Board (Dir/IR) has issued a letter by taking such a long delayed time for a meeting with representatives of NDGBGOA on 01.04.2015 with Member/Per, when the Agitation program of Peaceful Dharna at OFB  is scheduled on 06.04.2015. It is hard to understand that, even though Ministry of Defence (Vide Ref.No. 1 & 2) had issued two letters to sort out the issues/grievances of this Association at OFB level against our Agitation Program, O.F.Board is deliberately asking for fresh agenda points without resolving long pending issues pertaining to Group B Gazetted Officers mentioned in the submitted Memorandum of this Association (Memorandum submitted by CE on 25.01.2015 and by all the Branches on 29.01.2015) and granting a meeting with Member/Per without the presence of Honorable DGOF & chairman. 

        It is brought to your kind notice that, NDGBGO Association has communicated and projected all the important long pending issues pertaining to Group 'B' Gazetted Officers time and again in appropriate forums, but OFB has not taken up our grievances in right spirit to resolve.OFB has already completed the cadre review of IEs and IOFS but the cadre review of Group’B” is not completed. Therefore this Association has reluctantly forced to go for Agitation movement without any hope from OFB. It is relevant to mention here that Office Bearers of NDGBGOA had attended the following meetings with OFB officials and with the MOD Officials regarding long pending genuine demands of Group B Gazetted Officers during the last two years.

1.   08.08.2013 at New Delhi with Joint Secretary (P&C), MOD/DP.
2.   17.08.2013 at OFB, Kolkata with DGOF & Chairman.
3.   30.10.2013 at OFB, Kolkata with Member/Per and JS(P&C),MOD.
4.   22.01.2014 at OFB, Kolkata with Member/Per.
5.   12.03.2014 at Cossipore, with Member/Per and JS(P&C),MOD.
6.   01.09.2014 at OFB, Kolkata with DGOF & Chairman.
7.       12.12.2014 at OFB, Kolkata with Member/Per.
    
            It is ill-omened to note that in all the above meeting Top Officials gave only assurance without any settlement till date as if there is no importance of Group 'B' Gazetted cadre in the organization. In Ordnance Factories, every Group 'B' Gazetted Officer is shouldering the higher responsibilities with less salary compared to his subordinates and vested with doomed promotional prospects, ignoring all DOPT guidelines which clearly project the uncaring attitude of OFB towards the cadre.

          In the current situation of global competition and fear of corporatization, the negligence towards the most experienced and important cadre (Group 'B' Gazetted cadre) and keeping them out of the decision making forums means to run away from the "Make in India" mission of Honorable Prime Minister.

          Further OFB is also forcing us to go for so many litigations purely because of the negligence of this cadre by OFB & deprival of its legitimate carrier prospects.
                      
      In view of above, it is clearly shows that Ordnance Factory board has diluted the grievances of Group B Gazetted Officers by holding meeting without any corrective measure. Moreover all the above meetings were held without giving any minutes of the meeting by which Association is losing its hope on such kind of meetings/discussions.
  
             Therefore, the Central Executive of this Association requests you to grant a special separate meeting on 01.04.2015 with agenda as in memorandum submitted along with the intimation of agitation movement of NDGBGOA. It is also requested that a line of confirmation may please be given with regard to recording of the minutes of the meeting and to issue the signed copy of minutes on the same day (01.04.2015) to the undersigned for communicating to members of the Association before agitation.

Thanking  You,
                                                                           Yours faithfully.
