Merger/upgradation of LDC-UDC:Seeking information under RTI Act


Bhopal, dated 15/06/2011

The Central Public Information Officer
Department of Personal & Training,
North Block,
New Delhi.

Sub: Seeking information under Rule-6 of the Right to Information Act, 2005


Major Departments of Government of India viz Department of Post, Income Tax etc. have upgraded the post of LDC to the pay scale of UDC through cadre restructuring well before the implementation of the 6th Pay Commission report. In the Departments where cadre restructuring has not taken place, the LDCs & UDCs suffered a lot while implementing the 6th CPC. Meanwhile the cadres of erstwhile group D (now MTS) have been merged. The pre-revised pay scale of 4500-7000, 5000-8000 & 5500-9000 of Administrative Staff have also been merged and granted Rs. 4200 grade pay. But the LDC & UDC, who are the most laborious and work pulling staff in between these two groups have been given a simple replacement of the existing pay scale even though the Minimum academic qualification and technical qualification for the post of LDC have been raised. Moreover, the posts of LDC & UDC have been clubbed with the MTS as regards granting of pay band is concerned. Close on the heels, several of the Associations have demanded merger of the posts of LDC & UDC & Upgradation of grade pay to Rs. 2800/. The matter was fervently & continuously discussed in the internet websites wherein hundreds of comments showing the pathetic pay structure of LDCs & UDCs posted and demanded the Government to consider the merger of these posts and upgradation of grade pay. On the other hand Departments have not considered the restructuring of the LDC & UDC since these are common cadres and waiting for directive from DOPT.
In view of the above I request you to provide the following information under Rule-6 of the Right to Information Act, 2005:

1. Whether DoPT has taken any initiation for the merger/upgradation of the posts of LDC & UDC.
2. If yes, the recorded decision taken on the issue may be intimated

Necessary fee of Rs.10/- vide postal order No.97E 373350 dated 15/06/2011 is enclosed.

Encl: as above

  3. Sir, Good job on behalf of us. My god listen and positive reply come from DOPT.....

  4. Sir
    The Govt is deaf ear to their employees as they are not increasing pay and also have withdrawn the Pension plan. Now you cannot imagine the loss that i have lost in This new pension scheme, we are getting only 70% of the amount what we have invested. Govt. must see the miserable condition of the contributor and must withdraw this scheme.

  5. Government is not showing any interest towards increase of grade pay of LDC UDC staff. Mr.T.K.R.Pilli Sir, you have taken this issue which is very appreciated. All LDC and UDC officials are dried their hopes, but you have given some shawar on them. Now they are living with the hope.

  6. I feel that congress is the worst govt i have ever seen. They have removed the slab system to make rich more rich and poor for more poor.

    In each pay commission, the govt reduce the pay of LDC and thus making the LDC poor.

  7. The Govt. is totly deaf in r/o of LDC/UDC's pay hike. In 6th pay commission the situation of admn staff is very worst & they are treated as gr. D staff.
