Long pending demands of Employees, Teachers, Workers, Retired Employees, Contract & Outsourcing Employees- Request to resolve all the pending demands

We wish to bring to the kind notice of the Hon’ble Chief Minister, Government of Andhra Pradesh that certain long pending demands are not resolved for the last several years as a result of which there is a strong opposition against the leadership of Employees Associations in the State.

         Keeping in view of present growing dissatisfaction in the minds of Employees, Teachers, Workers, Pensioners, Contract & Outsourcing employees in the state with regard to achieve of our long pending demands, we on-behalf two JACs i.e., AP JAC & AP JAC Amaravathi both have decided to represent the long pending demands/issues to the Government on one platform in the name of “AP JAC & AP JAC Amaravathi  Ikya  Vedhika”.  


 

AP JAC & JAC Amaravathi Demands:

                        We submit the following few important demands to be resolved by the Government on top priority without further delay.

1. We seriously condemn the act of the State Finance Department as we are not getting our Pensions & salaries on 1st of every month   especially the Pensioners are facing lot of difficulties due to abnormal delay in getting their pensions in time. In addition to this, we are not getting our surrender leave encashment to our employees including Police officials, financial benefits of retired / retiring employees, GPF / APGLI loan amounts, Medical reimbursement bills and other financial payments due to the employees of various departments including funeral charges which are pending with Finance Department. It is not out of place to mention here that there are so many bills pertaining to Employees, Teachers, Pensioners, Contract & Outsourcing employees are lying pending in the Finance Department for the last one year.

                        Hence, it is necessary to issue strict instructions to the Prl.Secretary, Finance to release funds and ensure payment of salaries and pensions on 1st of every month as was being done for the last few decades in the State and also to settle the other bills pending with Finance Department.

2 A. Announcement of 11th PRC immediately without further delay since the Commissioner, 11th PRC have submitted his report to the Government long back.

B. Request to implement of IR and PRC recommendations to State Public Sector employees and Universities.

3. As promised by the Hon’ble Chief Minister, Government of Andhra Pradesh, the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) has to be abolished and the Old Pension scheme should be restored immediately.

4. The Government have to take immediate steps to pay the long-  awaited DA arrears (i.e., 2 announced DAs 1.7.2018 & 1.1.2019 and 5 DAs from 1.7.2019 to 1.7.2021) to Employees, Teachers, Workers and Retired Employees before 31.12.2021. 

5. We request the Government to take immediate steps to repeal the CFMS System which was introduced by the previous Government, as it becomes a stumbling block for employees and requested to ensure timely payments to employees.

6. Contract Employees recruited by the District Selection Committee as per ROR have to be regularized immediately and entire contract system should be abolished for future recruitment. 

7. Implementation of the ambitious 'Employees Health Scheme' by the State Government is not at all beneficial to Employees, Teachers, Workers as there is no benefit to the employees & Retired employees so far, since no full pledged implementation is done through network hospitals. Though we are contributing monthly subscriptions to the Government for successful implementation of EHS, there is no proper treatment in network hospitals and thereby Employees, Teachers & Pensions are paying huge money from their pocket to the Hospitals and getting meager amounts through Medical Reimbursement. 

                                In view of the above, we are under the opinion that, if the Government does not implement EHS card adequately, we request the Government to abolish this scheme and hand over to the corporate insurance companies under the supervision of the Government to provide better medical care to the Employees, Teachers & Pensioners. 

8. To enhance the salaries of the Contract & Outsourcing Employees working in the State immediately.

9. We felt that some of the Secretaries in various Departments like; Medical & Health, Education and Municipal etc., are not taking serious steps for issue of Departmental promotions to the employees and kept vacancies pending years together.

10. Request for retention of all Office bearers of  Recognized Service Associations till they complete present three (3) terms or Nine (9) Nine years stay in their respective working stations i.e., State / District Taluk level Head Quarters by cancelling the orders issued vide Govt. Circular memo. GAD01-SW-SERA/27/2019-SW Dated:23-01-2020 by protecting the rights of employees.

11. We request to consider the following demands.

a. The Commercial Taxes NGO`s Association request to disband of boarder Check posts under GST regime w.e.f 01-07-2017 in Commercial Tax Department and also request for shifting of posts to the Circles and Division Offices from defunct check posts. As there is no additional expenditure involved if the proposal is considered and also all the posts are sanctioned posts only. 

b. Assigning of Gazetted Status to the post of ACTO/GSTO.

12. Government have issued Orders in GO.MS.No.152 Finance (HR.III Pension) Department dated 25.11.2019, that the procedural guidelines for sanction family pension to the Widowed/ Divorced and unmarried Daughter under Category. II and restriction of age limit up to 45 years have been ordered for eligibility.

We request to take appropriate action for withdrawal of the age limit with regard to family pension to the Widowed/ Divorced and unmarried Daughter as ordered in the said Government Order in the interest of bewared family members and request to issue necessary amendment orders at an early.

13. To consider 180 days of maternity leave availed by Women employees as duty period during their probation period.

14. To consider to continue Dearness Allowance to Village Revenue Assistants @ Rs.500/- (which was stopped during June 2018 onwards) as was being continued for the decades onwards and also to release 10% deferred salaries to Village Revenue Assistants immediately which were stopped due to 1st wave of Corona as all the remaining employees whose 10% deferred salaries were paid by the Government in Dec.2020/Jan.2021.

15. Amendment to AP Ministerial Service Rules to abolish Typist post and also to remove Typing qualifications with retrospective effect since majority of the employees who were being appointed for the last several years on conditional compassionate grounds for the post of typist have not qualified due to non availability of typing institutes & hence getting reversions as class-iv employees which is unfair and injustice to the families of deceased Government employees.

16. Although the retirement age for public servants has been raised from 58 years to 60 years, the retirement age for Class-IV employees who are 60 years of age at the same time has not been increased by the previous Government. Hence, genuine & long pending demand of Class-IV Government employees who are low class sector employees should be fulfilled by raising the superannuation period of Class-IV employees working in the State from 60 to 62 years.

17. We request to consider the following demands.

a. Up-gradation of record, Lab / Library Assistant posts in ZPPH Schools in the State to the cadre of Jr. Assistants to cater the Administration needs of High Schools in A.P. Panchayat Raj Ministerial Employees.

b. Restoration of 23 Administrative Officer and 13 Account Officers Posts in ZPPs in the State which are surrender for creation of DLDOs and to withdraw the condition to provide staff to DLDOs by diverting the posts from the ZPPs duly amending the G.O.Ms.No.674.

20. We request to create 112 posts of Administrative Officers (14), Superintendent (28) and Sr. Assistants (70) by suppressing 202 posts of Typists, Tracers, Chainman etc. in Agriculture Department.  By creation of above posts by suppressing more than double the posts an amount of Rs.4.70 Crores per annum (approximately) will be a saving to the Government.

21. We request for implementation of A.P.Panchayat Raj Diploma Engineers Pay Scales of Rs.1050-1945 in RPS-1986 to Diploma work Inspectors as per the directions of Hon’ble High Court. (In WP.Nos. 16082, 16437 and 16428 of 2019).

22. We request the Government to dispense with the system of “Hire vehicles” system immediately and request to purchase "Government vehicles" in all Departments since its very important to maintain secrecy, loyalty & decorum in some departments like; Revenue, Panchayat Raj etc., during maintenance of Law & Order, Conduct of General Elections, Protocol etc., and the services of Govt.Drivers are very much required in those Departments.  

23. We all know that the Government have taken a bold decision to convert APSRTC employees into Government employees by merging them in to the “Public Transport Department” which is great & dynamic decision of our Hon’ble Chief Minister and ensured a great security to the families of around 73,000 of RTC (PTD) employees in the state. 

But there are so many important issues/problems as mentioned below to be resolved by the Government in respect of various facilities that are being continuing by the APSRTC towards their employees and the issues raised after merging them into Government sector which needs immediate attention & resolution by the Government.

The SRBS / SBT trusts (which have been abolished) which are being maintaining by the APSRTC with the participation of their employees/workers for the last several decades should be continued though the APSRTC employees were considered as public servants in addition to the existing facilities providing by the Government.

The Old Pension Scheme for APSRTC employees working in the Department of Public Transport should be implemented as was being implemented to the Government employees who joined before the 2004.

As APSRTC is still having separate entity, the recognised union of the AP PTD ( earlier APSRTC Employees Union with Reg. No. 215/1952) Employees Union should also be considered as recognized association in the Department of Public Transport.

24. We request the Government; 

a) to permit One Time Grant (through Cabinet approval) to all NGOs House Building Societies throughout the state which are pending for the last several years with the Government due to court litigations, though they have paid total market value as approved by the High Power committee headed by the CCLA & Spl.CS so as to enable them to distribute the house sites to all eligible employees/members. It is not out of place to mention here that majority of the employees who were members of the said societies were retired from service and some of them were died due to prolonged delay in getting house site pattas even after lapse of 30 to 35 years.        

b) In this regard, the Government have issued orders vide G.O.Rt.No.1937 GAD Dt: 28.08.2019 by framing certain guidelines for grant of house sites to all the Employees, Journalists, Pastors, Imams and Priests.
