A letter received from Shri Poly P.X.

Stenographer Gr.I

Gandhinagar, Gujarat

11th November 2013

 I would like to invite your attention to the plight of Stenographers working in Central Govt. offices especially those who are working in the field/subordinate offices. It is so sorry that the Stenographers working in the field/subordinate offices are the only cadre in the entire Central Govt. who are neglected and exploited compared to any other cadre.  No doubt the welfare of Stenographers of CSS cadre is taken care of whereas the Stenographers working in field/subordinate offices are left out.

Here, I would like to emphasis on two issues which needs your urgent attention and you may please take-up these matters with DOPT and VIIth CPC immediately.

Matter to be taken up with DOPT:

Recently, the Hon. Supreme Court of India in its judgment directed the Govt. to give MACP to the employees on promotional hierarchy instead of next higher Grade Pay as per the recommendation of VIth CPC.  This is under the consideration of the DOPT and a final decision in this regard is expected any time.

Upon implementation of VIth CPC, the stenographers working in field/subordinate offices were re-designated as Stenographer Gr.II with Pay Band–1 Rs.5,200-20,200 with Grade Pay of Rs.2400 and Stenographer Gr.I with Pay Band-2 Rs.9300-34800 with Grade Pay of Rs.4200.  In this scenario the Stenographers working in the field/subordinate offices will not be getting the benefit of the Hon. Supreme Court judgment to give MACP to the employees on promotional hierarchy instead of next higher Grade Pay, as there is no promotional hierarchy for Stenographers working in the field/subordinate offices.  Majority of the cadres will be getting MACP in the Grade Pay of Rs.5400/- after completion of 10 years in the Grade Pay of Rs.4200/-.  Here also we are deprived of this benefit.  In short, the Stenographers working in the field/subordinate offices deprived of any promotion due to non-availability of promotional channel and also deprived of the MACP on promotional hierarchy instead of next higher Grade Pay.  This is utter injustice and arbitrary.

In view of the above, you may please take up the matter with DOPT and fight for the genuine justice of the Stenographers working in the field/subordinate offices.

Matter to be taken up with VIIth Pay Commission:

Majority of the Stenographers like me working in the field/subordinate offices do not have any promotional avenues and have to retire on the same post, whereas even the LDCs and Typists being the administrative cadre have the promotional channel as LDC/Typist-UDC-Office Supdt/Asst. Director/Dy. Director.   It is so unfortunate that a Typist working under a Stenographer have promotional channel and can become Asst. Director/Dy. Director, a gazette post, whereas the Stenographers have to retire on the same post having no promotional channel.

After implementation of VIth CPC, the stenographers working in field/subordinate offices were re-designated as Stenographer Gr.II with Pay Band–1 Rs.5,200-20,200 with Grade Pay of Rs.2400 and Stenographer Gr.I with Pay Band-2 Rs.9300-34800 with Grade Pay of Rs.4200.  In short, the Stenographers will be getting only one promotion in the entire service period.  Probably, this may be the only cadre in the Central Govt. offices having only one promotion in the entire service period.  Though the Stenographers perform all sort of administrative jobs like noting, drafting, maintaining various files, dealing with confidential/vigilance matters, maintaining APAR files in addition to their basic duties of taking dictation and typing as compared to a UDC or LDC/Typist, when it comes to promotion they are deprived of the same. 

In view of the above facts and details, you are requested to take up the matter at appropriate forum for the welfare of Stenographers like me working in the field/subordinate offices across India.

           
Yours sincerely,

POLY  P.X.
