Subject: Cadre Review in of Industrial Cadres.

Reference; DOO Letter No.PER/I/CADRE REVIEW/ IE, dated 12/11/2021,

Sir,

In response to your letter dtd. 12/11/2021, on the above subject we wish to submit the following for your favourable consideration please.

1) As regards, the Artisan Staff/Tradesman, the cadre restructuring is being carried out by the Ministry of Defence for the entire Defence Civilian Employees by revising the Intergrade ratio.

2) After the 7 CPC recommendations, there was a meeting held under the Chairmanship of JS(E) of MoD with the Federations and the following proposal was unanimously approved for processing with Department of Personnel & Training.

DesignationPay Scales as per 7th CPC w.e.f, 01/01/2016Present Ratio w.e.f. 01/01/2006Revised Ratio proposed
Master Craftsman (MCM) (PB-2, GP-2400/-)Level – 613.75%20%
Highly skilled – 1 (PB-1, GP-2800)Level -520.625%
Highly skilled – 1 (PB-1, GP-2400)Level – 420.625%
Skilled (PB-1, GP-2400)Level – 2      45%

3) In this regard the MoD vide their ID Letter dtd. 18/05/2020 have asked for financial implications from all Directorates including OFB. The proposal is at present under consideration with DOP&T and Department of Expenditure.

In this situation we fail to understand how the DDP can carry out a separate Cadre Review exercise in respect of Tradesman of Ordnance Factories. Therefore it is proposed that you may kindly wait for outcome of the above proposal of Ministry of Defence. Moreover the proposal to abolish the posts which are lying vacant and reducing the sanctioned strength of Tradesman from 99503/94598 to 65217 Is not acceptable, since it will take away the promotional opportunities of the existing employees and it has not taken in to account the war reserve required for meeting any emergent situation like Kargil crisis etc.

In view of the above it is requested that no further decision may be taken in this regard without holding a meeting with the Federations.

Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,
