                Achievements of INDWF in respect of the Defence civilian Employees matters from its formation to till date (1959-2009)

                Indian National Defence Workers Federation is one of the premier trade Union organizations of the Defence civilian Employees functioning for the last 50 years.

               This Federation is representing in various JCM Councils of HQRS JCM III Levels such as Army, Navy, Airforce, DGQA, DGAQA, DGOF, DRDO, Ministry of Defence and in National Council JCM since its formation ( from 1966) and representing effectively and sorted out many issues of Defence Civilian Employees and protecting their interests. Through various pay commissions right from II, III rd, IV th, Vth and VI th Pay Commission, the pay scale were revised timely. Originally, the demand was for the Govt employees was at par with Railways and subsequently the demand was parity with Public Sector in IV the CPC. Now we have achieved the parity even more than Public Sector employees through VI th CPC recommendations.

            After III rd CPC, Expert classification committee was appointed and further anomalies committee was appointed to upgrade the pay scales of the Group ‘D’ and ‘C’ employees of Industrial employees in Defence.

• Through these committees, the scales of Rs.196+10, were merged with Rs.210-290.

• Industrial ratio of 15:20:65 was introduced for 23 trades initially.

• Semi skilled appointments were declared against skilled vacancies.

• On completion of 2/3 years in semiskilled grade they were promoted to skilled grade.

• MCM grade was introduced 10% against 15% of HS Grade-I

• In Ordnance Factories through Guha Committee (JCM III Sub-committee) 267 trade were brought down to 64 trades by rationalization of trades (Abolition and merger)

• Out of the rationalization, we have made 12000 promotions to various grades during Dec, 1999.

• Through V th CPC, the demand for introduction of Assured Career Progression (ACP) (Minimum 2 promotions in total service career) was introduced w.ef. 09.08.1999. DRTC.

• (Flexible promotion scheme) was introduced for Technical staff of DRDO which is now giving promotions for 30 % every year after completion of 5 years.

• During 2002, the demand for re-structuring of industrial trades in Defence was made to agree by the Govt of India, and the revised ratio was introduced w.e.f. 20.05.2003 as a result of which :

               • MCM grade was created for all industrial trades with 25% of 55 HS grade.

              • 45% : 55 % Ratio was introduced for skilled and HS grade ( HS II & HS I merged)

              • MCM was declared as not a regular promotion grade.

              • Given effective from 20.05.2003 retrospectively.

             • One time relaxation from trade test and qualifying service (minimum service)

             • About 70,000 employees of Defecne out of 2.08 Lakhs Trades man got promotion opportunities in one stroke.

• After introduction of ACP scheme, with our continuous efforts, semi skilled to skilled promotion was ignored and HSK to MCM was also not counted for ACP. With this decision, employees appointed as semiskilled on completion of 12 & 24 years of service elevated to Rs.5000-8000. This has given a big relief to many thousands of employees in Defence from their stagnation. This was a biggest achievement of INDWF as this was only demanded by INDWF and made the Govt to accept.

• Major achievement was to remove the disparity in Earned Leave between Industrial employees and other NIES and NGOS in Defence in respect of accumulation and encashment. Govt of India agreed during Nov 2006 to enhance accumulation of EL up to 300 days and total encashment.

• Encashment of EL up to 30 days for IES in Defence.

• Appointment of VI th CPC and revision of pay scales after 10 years. Early appointment and timely implementation w.e.f. 01.01.2006 was achieved. Payment of arrears in cash. A total achievement was due to INTUC and INDWF efforts.

• Enhancement of minimum Bonus ceiling from Rs 2500/- to 3500/- by issuing special Ordnance on 27.10.2007 with effect 2006-07 and payment of arrears for 2006-07 and 2007-08. This was made applicable to Defence employees also.

• Appointment of National Anomaly committee and Departmental Anomaly committee to remove the anomalies of Vith CPC.

• Un-skilled and SSK labourer Posts are merged and placed in Rs. 1800/- GP and earlier Promotions/ACP were not counted for future ACP.

• Fireman Scale up gradation to Rs 1900/- and merger of Fireman II & I.

• Clerical Cadre Review was implemented in Ord Fys.

• Removal of Stagnation of Store keepers, Supervisors on completion of 12 years is under consideration.

• Giving Piece Work Profit to Piece Workers from the date of Promotion instead of pending Pay fixation.

• Granting of Rs 100/- Minimum Promotions benefit to those HS I Promoted between 1-1-1996 – 19-05-1997.

• NDA- Payment of arrears of NDA between 1996 till date on Ivth CPC Notional Pay taking into DA, Annual increment, Promotions etc.

• Direct Recruitment in Skilled for Ex Trade APP.

• Still INDWF is continuing its efforts to achieve many issues pending before Govt of India.
