Delay in approval of Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) – Recognition of Service Associations in Department of Space/Indian Space Research Organisation by Prime Minister’ Office
Dated – 14th March 2018
Shri Narendra Modiji
Hon’ble Prime Minister of India
New Delhi – 110001
Sub: – Delay in approval of Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) – Recognition of Service Associations in Department of Space/Indian Space Research Organisation by Prime Minister’ Office – reg.
Your kind attention is hereby invited on the aforesaid subject matter, wherein the Recognition of Service Associations is yet to get approval from PMO even after re-verification completed in August 2014 by Department of Space/Indian Space Research organisation under CCS (RSA) Rules 1993.
Several reminder were given to Secretary, DOS seeking recognition of JCM and the reply was not promising. It was conveyed to us that the Prime Minister’s approval is still pending.
JCM has been functioning in DOS/ISRO centers since 1980 even though it was approved by GOI in 1977. The scheme was formulated in consultation with DoPT. There are 14 Regional/Office Council and one Department Council in DOS. Under CCS (RSA) Rule 1993, JCM is functioning in DOS/ISRO with the approval of Prime Minister as Minister-in-charge of Department of Space. The duration of recognition of Service Association is 5 years.
As per the re-verification of membership of Service Association conducted in August 2014, 17 Associations/Unions were qualified from various ISRO centres. It is highly disheartening that the functioning of JCM is made dormant in DOS and many issues related to employees are unaddressed in department and regional levels in all centres. There are so many anomalies and issues pertaining to employees on implementation of 7th CPC in DOS. Informal JCM meetings conducted till 2015 with 17 qualified Association to redress the grievances of employees in DOS were also bunged.
Hence, we request to you, Sir, to kindly look into this issue and get it redressed early.
