'Swamysnews’

‘Swamysnews’ – Unbreakable bond with Central Government employees continues

The name ‘Swamysnews’ makes people assume that it is a spiritual publication. But the truth is – the publication has nothing even remotely connected to divinity or religion. It however has got everything to do with information that are relevant to the Central Government employees. In fact, it could be called a treasure trove of details. There is no Central Government employee who doesn’t know about Swamysnews because the publication has answers to all the questions..!
Swamy Publishers Private Limited is a company mainly publishing books on Central Government Rules. For more than 55 years now, the publication, which was started in 1958, continues to provide crucial information in the form of books, to Central Government employees and their offices.

The founder of this organization, Mr.Muthuswamy, was an employee of the Postal Department, a Central Government organization. After getting promoted in his job, he started the service in order to create awareness in the midst of Central Government employees. He had the opportunity to conduct regular free classes for the benefit of his junior colleagues. He edited his lectures and circulated cyclostyled notes on a non-profit basis to examinees in other cities as well. The not-for-profit venture created new openings for him. The books that he published started gaining popularity. Employees found them very useful. He became well known in many Central Government Offices across the country as a reliable instructor and interpreter in the field of Guide Books for Service Rules.

Swamys books are broadly classified into Reference Books, Special Books, Guide Books and a monthly magazine ‘swamysnews’. These books were not only of high quality, but the information contained in them was verified and up-to-date. The books gained further credibility due to the explanations and interpretations of the Government Orders that they featured. Due to their long history in accurately presenting Central Government employees related news, the publication gained the Centre’s approval. Swamysnews Publishers are the only publication with Government approval.

Their monthly publication, ‘Swamysnews’ is their specialty. They usually contain all the latest Government Orders, Case-Law Section, Supreme Court Judgments, Tribunal Judgments and Question and Answer(Readers Forum) section. The Q&A section contains only selected questions. The crystal-clear manner in which they strongly present their answers and explain them shows their confidence and their mastery of the subject.

The crowning achievement of the publication is its annual ‘Swamy’s Handbook for Central Government Employees’. The book is an encyclopedia of information.

In the current age of the Internet, it is possible to find all information on the computer screen. But, it is hard to ignore or forget the contributions made by a publication that they supplied important rules and orders through books in time to all the Departments of Central Government and many Public Sector Undertakings, especially in the North-eastern states.

Even in this age, books continue to be respected. The proof lies in the undiminished sales of their publications.

The strong bond between the Central Government employees and Swamysnews shall only get stronger.

Expected DA from Jan 2015 – Comparison of DA Calculation from 2006 to 2014

Written By jeyashri mk on Tuesday, 4 November 2014 | 09:12

Expected DA from Jan 2015 – Comparison of DA Calculation from 2006 to 2014

Expected-DA-jan-2015
Expected DA from Jan 2015 – AICPIN Points for September Released – Remains Unchanged at 253


One of the most important department functioning under the Central Government is the Labour Bureau. The department releases a number of important statistics and conducts surveys. In the year 1872, the department had successfully conducted the population census of the entire country. This census gave not only the count of number of persons, but also the number of gainfully employed. Since then every census has thrown useful data on workers in different industries and occupations every 10 years. The bureau also releases official information, economic indicators like Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial, Agricultural and Rural Labourers; wage rate indices and data on industrial relations etc. that are followed by a number of government departments.
One such indicator is the monthly Consumer Price Index Numbers (Industrial Workers 2001=100), which is used to calculate the Dearness Allowance for Central Government employees. Prices of 24 essential commodities (from rice to bathing soap) are observed in 78 cities all over the country in order to calculate the average index of CPI(IW).
It is based on these statistics that, once every six months, the Centre announces Dearness Allowance for its employees. Based on the AICPIN(All India Consumer Price Index Numbers) between January and June, and between July and December, the Finance Ministry decides the percentage of hike in Dearness allowance and Dearness Relief according to the recommendations of 6th CPC and informs the Government. The Centre makes its decision after discussing the recommendation during the cabinet meeting.
Now, ‘Expected DA from Jan 2015′ is the first installment of next year and only three months’ data have been collected as of now, for the Dearness Allowance. Accurate D.A percentage can be calculated only after the remaining 3 months’ AICPIN points are announced.
But, we believe that based on October’s AICPIN points, we can conclude if the next D.A hike is going to be for 6% or 7%.
The Dearness Allowance announcements since 2006 have been tabulated and presented, as additional information.

Holding of National Convention of the National Council (JCM)(Staff Side)

Written By jeyashri mk on Tuesday, 28 October 2014 | 19:12

National Convention of the National Council (JCM Staff Side) to be held on 11.12.2014.

Shiva Gopal Mishra
Secretary
Ph: 23382286
National Council (Staff Side)
Joint Consultative Machinery for Central government Employees
13-C, Ferozshah Road, New Delhi – 110001
E Mail : nc.jcm.np@ gmail .com
Ref. No.NC-JCM/2014/SC
Dated: October 25, 2014
All Constituent Organisations,
National Council(JCM)
Dear Comrades,
Sub: Holding of National Convention of the National Council (JCM) (Staff Side)

As you are aware, the Staff Side, JCM National Council had, as desired by the 7th CPC, submitted a separate memorandum on Interim Relief and Merger of DA, copy of which had also been sent to the Finance Ministry. During the Informal Discussions the Staff Side had with the Pay Commission, they had assured us to take up the issue with the Government seeking amendment to the Terms of Reference to enable them to act upon our memorandum.

We have received reply from the Finance Ministry, which is indicative of a refusal of both the demands. The NDA Government has adopted the same plea made by the UPA II Government to reject our demands. The 7th CPC have so far not communicated to us, the decision they have taken on our memorandum.

From the steps so far taken by the BJP Government, it is unambiguous that they would be pursuing the neo-liberal economic policies with much more intensity than even the UPA Government. Having got a clear majority in the Parliament, they would be able to push through necessary legislations to pursue reforms. The outsourcing of Railway functions, privatization of Defence manufacturing Units, increased FDI inflow in various core sectors of economy, dismantling of the administrative price mechanism, de-nationalization efforts in the Banking, Insurance and Coal Sectors and above all the adherence to New Contributory Pension Scheme are some of the bold anti worker steps taken by the new Government.

The matter of fact approach and urgency which was visible in the initial days of the 7th CPC appears to have vanished. It is a matter of pride for all of us that we could submit our final memorandum on common issues to the Commission within the stipulated time frame. We are also happy to note that almost all service organizations of Central Government employees have endorsed our formulations on the wage structure and other service benefits. It is also a fact that all these organizations have submitted their memoranda on department-specific issues before 31st July, 2014. Despite having received such large number of memoranda, the 7thCPC has so far not commenced taking oral evidence giving an indubitable impression that the Commission might not be able to submit its report within the stipulated time of 18 months.

All these issues came up for the consideration of the members of the Staff side when they met a few days back. The unanimous opinion was to pursue the issues through organizational methods. Accordingly, it was decided to hold a National Convention, eliciting the participation of the representatives of all Service organizations participating in the JCM to discuss the emerging situation and decide upon future course of action. Incidentally, we must mention that the JCM conceived as a negotiating forum has been made
ineffective by the Government over the years by not convening its meetings periodically.

The National Convention will be held at MPCU Shah Auditorium, Sree Gurjarathi Samaj, Raj Niwas Road, Civil Lines(Opposite Civil Lines Metro Station), Delhi, on 11th December, 2014. The Convention will commence at 12 Noon and will be concluded by 4.00 PM. 740 delegates will participate in the convention, of which 370 shall be Railwaymen(AIRF and NFIR), 150 will be Defence Civilian employees (AIDEF and INDWF) and the rest 220 will be represented by other Central Government employees (Confederation of Central Government employees and workers). The participating organizations will issue separate circular letter indicating the number of delegates of each Branch/Unit, Divisions/Zones, Circles/States, and affiliates may deploy to the Convention.

The Staff side will meet again to finalize the draft declaration to be placed before the Convention for discussion and adoption. The date and venue of the meeting will be intimated in due course.

With greetings,
Comradely yours,
