Shri S.Chandrakanth Rao President/NDGBGOA delivered his inaugural speech. While addressing to the house, he explained that NDGBGOA had met the 7th CPC on their visit on 19th November 2014 at Hyderabad and discussed the cadre related points. The Assn had clearly explained to the 7th CPC about the systematic degradation of the middle management cadre from 4th CPC onwards and up to 6th CPC. The representatives of NDGBGOA had requested to Secretary/7th CPC to correct the anomalies taken place to the JWM cadre in the past CPC’s. The Secretary/ 7th CPC assured to the assn that proper justification to be done to JWM cadre while submitting the pay commission report to Govt.
While addressing to the house, the President categorically explained to the house that the possibility of stern competition from private sectors due to increase of 49% FDI in the Defence sector. He also explained that more emphasize to be given for quality of the products and timely supply to customer and increasing of R&D activities in the Organization. He requested OFB and GM’s to increase R&D activities which was taken up long back with the OFB by our Association.
Sri Jaigopal Singh, General Secretary/NDGBGOA stated that it is really appreciable that in this hard station the arrangement made by O.F. Bolangir towards the CEC Meeting is really fantastic and memorable. While explaining to the house he stated that due to continual efforts of our Assn, SRO of JWMs could be amended to Non Ministerial cadre from Ministerial Cadre which will be definitely helpful in the 7Th CPC. Since last 18 years in SRO of JWM was kept as ministerial cadre which is nothing but a clerical cadre. Due to our continual effort we could achieved Brief Case, Computer etc. for JWM cadre. Now Risk allowance also will be extended to Chargeman and JWMs involved in Explosive and chemicals. We have also taken up the point of Incentive scheme for all the Gazetted Officers in Ordnance Factories which is important factor in the salary in the industrial set up. Now OFB had appointed a committee for study of our proposal.
General Secretary while addressing to the house he explained that NDGBGOA had met 7th CPC three times in different places like New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad since last six months and explained the genuine importance of the cadre and the same was appreciated by the 7th CPC and assurances received from Secretary/7th CPC that the committee will do proper justification to these JWM cadre in their report. The next Official meeting is fixed with 7th CPC at Kolkata on 11-01-2015. Our association had taken up the important issue of Industrial Allowance for Gazetted Officers of Ordnance Factories. One more important demand which was initiated by our association is International LTC. As per the sources it is revealing that the same will be materialized by the Govt. within in a short span or in the 7th CPC. Our Assn had filed three court cases in Central Administrative Tribunals. Two cases are in Chennai in which one is nature of work and allowances and another is violation of SRO 227 by OFB (promotion from JWM to AWM). In this regard OFB is preparing another list of promotions from JWM to AWM. The case which is pending at Mumbai CAT for promotional increment may be finalized in the month of April’2015. As per the information from MoD it is expected to get the order on increment by February month and an office note was put up for approval to M of F. General Secretary also explained that the way Govt. is taking steps like division of core and non-core area of Ordnance factories and increasing of production targets is nothing but putting more pressure on O.F. Organization. By dividing the factories and by increasing the targets and curtailing the man power requirement the Govt. is stepping towards the Corporatization which is a big threat to all of us. He requested house to be more vigilant in future about the Govt. activities which may lead to a question about the existence of our O.F. Organization.
While addressing to the house Sri Akilesh Kumar/Addl. GM expressed his deep concern about the JWM cadre and he hope that in forth coming 7th CPC JWM cadre will get justified pay scales. He also told that the NDGBGOA raised demands are very justified and genuine and management will definitely support to the JWM cadre in all respects..
Sri P.M. Mallick PMO while addressing to the house, he expressed that the JWM’s are the back bone of the Organization and their contribution for planning to production is unforgettable.
