The scheme for grant of monthly ex-gratia awards in cases of death / disablement of Cadets (Direct) due to causes attributable to or aggravated by Military Training was introduced vide Ministry of Defence letter dated 16.04.1996 which was applicable with effect from 01.01.1986. Rates of Ex-gratia awards have been revised by each Pay Commission. The rates notified vide Ministry of Defence letter dated 04.09.2017, are as follows:-

To,
All the affiliated Unions of AIDEF, INDWF and BPMS

Make the Delhi demonstrations on 15.02.2018 a grand success.

At the outset we congratulate the affiliated Unions of the three Federations and the other Unions and Associations and the entire Defence Civilian Employees for effectively observing “Defence Industry Protection on Week” from 08.01.2018 to 12.01.2018. We are also happy to know that after the above programme the Unions are continuing their propaganda and compaigning against the retrograde policy decisions being taken by the Government against the interest of Defence Industry and its Employees. As per the decision already taken we have to successfully organize the Massive Demonstration at Delhi on 15.02.2018. We have already applied for permission with the Police Authorities for holding the demonstration at Parliament Street, New Delhi. We request the Unions in and around Delhi and nearby States to organize in large number for the demonstration. Unions from other places may also take efforts to mobilize the maximum number of Employees for the demonstration. The demonstration will start at 9.30 AM and concluded by 14.00 hrs.

Strike Ballot to be taken by affiliated Unions of 5 OEF Group of Factories, 8 ABWs, 14 Station Workshops, 39 Military Farms, 4 Depots and MES

As decided jointly by the three Federations the above Establishments have to observe “One Day Call Attention Strike” on 15th March, 2018. For this purpose all the affiliated Unions functioning in these units have to take Strike Ballot as per the schedule given below:

b) 22.02.2018 - Strike Ballot by INDWF Unions
c) 23.02.2018 - Strike Ballot by BPMS Unions

Other Unions in your area / Unit may take Strike Ballots on 19th or 20th of February, 2018 according to local convenience. The following will be the demands for the Strike and the Strike Ballot.
a) To withdraw the decision taken by Ministry of Defence to declare the products being manufactured in the Ordnance Factories as “Non-Core” and to outsource the same.

b) To withdraw the Government Orders for granting Rs. 10,000/- as Uniform Allowance in place of stitched uniforms affecting the 5 OEF Group of Factories and its nearly 10,000 Employees including almost 2000 Women Employees. The decision to further declare 39 itmes of OEF Group of Factories including Army Logo Uniform and Parachutes etc. as “Non-Core” itmes inspite of the commitment given by DDP may be withdrawn.

c) To withdraw the decision to close down 14 Station Workshops under EME and convert Army Base Workshops into GOCO Model.

d) To withdraw the decision to close down 4 Depots under DGOS and 39 Military Farms.

e) To withdraw the decision of declaring more than 31000 Defence Civilian Employees of Army Units Surplus including in MES.

f) Stop outsourcing of permanent and perennial jobs in MES and fillup all the vacant posts.

The affiliated Unions may keep informed their respective Federations about the result of the Strike Ballot. The Model Strike Notice etc. will be forwarded to all the Unions separately.

The three Federations once again appeal to all the Unions and Associations to remain united and continue the compaigning programmes and also to carry forward the struggle till we achieve our goal of saving the Defence Industry from the present crisis.

Age Limit for NPS

Age Limit for NPS

Vide PFRDA (Exits and Withdrawals from National Pension System) Second Amendment Regulations, 2017, dated 6th October, 2017, the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) has permitted any Indian citizen who is in the age group of 18-65 years to join the National Pension System (NPS) on voluntary basis. As informed by PFRDA, a total of 1056 persons between the ages of 60-65 years have joined up to 31st January, 2018.

NPS is a contributory pension scheme available to the Indian citizens between the ages of 18-65 years on voluntary basis. There will be no financial burden on Government due to increase in the eligibility age of joining NPS from 60 to 65 years because Government doesn’t pay any contribution for private employees and also Government employees who join the NPS after the age of retirement at 60 years.

Menstruation Benefits to Women Employees

There is no such proposal for grant of any menstrual leave or introduction of any legislation in this regard. However, under the centrally sponsored scheme of Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), activities such as adolescent health awareness programme for girls, provision of separate toilet blocks for girls as part of schools and installation of incinerator machine and sanitary napkin & vending machine for girls at schools and girl’s hostels are undertaken for general hygiene management. National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has developed syllabus on health and physical education for classes I-XII as a follow up of National Curriculum Framework, 2005, which provides adequate space for menstrual hygiene.

Ministry of Health and family Welfare is implementing the scheme for Promotion of Menstrual Hygiene for Adolescent Girls residing primarily in rural areas of the country. Adolescent girls are provided with sanitary napkins at subsidized rates by Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA’s) within the community and through the platform of Government and Government aided school. Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation has also developed National Guidelines on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) which aims to support all adolescent girls and women.

The above information was given by Union Minister of State for Women and Child Development Dr.Virendra Kumar in a written reply in Lok Sabha on 9.2.2018.

Drastic reduction in Budgetary support to Ordnance Factories – BPMS

Drastic reduction in Budgetary support to Ordnance Factories – BPMS
REF: BPMS / MOD / Budget / 186 (8/1/R)
Dated: 10.02.2018
To
Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman,
Defence Minister,
Government of India,
South Block, New Delhi

Sub :- Drastic reduction in Budgetary support to Ordnance Factories

Hon’ble madam,
With due regards, I would like to bring the following for your kind personal intervention at the earliest please:-

We were not surprised on your statement speaking on the eve to mark 90 years of the setting up of leading industry body FICCI on 14.12.2017 when you said: “This may be a proper and suitable occasion to say that I am doing a major review of the ordnance factories, to make sure we understand where they are, what is it that they have to be given, are they going to be in a position to be joint venture partners for people trying to benefit from transfer of technology… so OFBs (ordnance factory boards) are also being looked into.”

But we are consternated to note that all of a sudden the government has drastically cut down the Budgetary support of the Ordnance Factories, both for the Revised Estimates for the year 2017-18 and the Budgetary Estimates for the year 2018-19. In the current year Value of Issue for Army was planned at Rs. 14496 crore which has been reduced to Rs. 11419 crore (reduction by 21.22%). Budget Estimate for the year 2018-19 indicates reduction from Rs. 14872 crore to Rs. 11743 crore for issues to Army. Due to this, spares of ‘A’ Vehicles and Artillery Guns, sighting Systems and Electronics, General Stores and Clothing, Small Arms cannot be supplied to Army. This will have a cascading adverse effect on the capacity utilization of concerned 12 Ordnance Factories, pay pocket of employees and society at large.

As a major stakeholder, this development is being view with great concern as it directly and brutally affects not only the Defence Production sector per se, but the war preparedness of the Nation too. In this connection we seek to bring to your kind attention various correspondence of this Federation wherein we have reiterated the fact that depending on the Private Sector on critical supplies have been a failure till date and will continue to be so in the future too, after all, this sector cannot just perform on the single point agenda of “return on investment”, the mainstay of the private enterprises.

Suffice to mention once again that the private sector can only make sound & fury but cannot deliver due to the vagarity of the situation prevalent in defence purchases. It is worth to mention here that erstwhile Defence Minister, Shri Manohar Parrikar had been encouraging the Ordnance Factories’ employees/organization as they ensured defence production upto Rs 14,000 crore in the financial year 2015-16. He noticed that the output of the ordnance factory had improved for the first time by 17 per cent. It was stagnant for four to five years and hovering around Rs 10,000 to Rs 11,000 crore. He used to say, “Ordnance Factories have achieved new milestones in production of ammunition and defence weapons.

These defence establishments have a bright future for feeding defence products for security of the nation. Now, ordnance factories are eyeing production of Rs 20,000 crore in near future,”

The drastic reduction in Budgetary support, it is apprehended, will entail stoppage of supplies of various critical spares, general items, electronic items and even small arms and ammunitions, directly affecting the work load of more than a dozen factories and thousands of workmen.

In view of the above, we seek your kind personal intervention in the matter with an request to restore the budgetary support to its original state to avoid a major collapse of supplies which may eventually cause impediment to the war preparedness of the Nation.

An immediate action in the matter is therefore solicited.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Sincerely yours
(MUKESH SINGH)
Secretary/BPMS &
Member, JCM-II Level Council (MOD)
