I am posting a letter addressed to Shri K Suresh Kumar, Under Secretary, CS II Section, DoPT returning the proposal for the upgradation of Grade pay of LDC and UDC on the ground given therein. This letter was not attached with the original documents while returning the case to the Association by the CS II. Shri Bipin Kumar Pandey has obtained this letter through RTI and forwarded to me through e-mail.
In para II it is stated that no anomaly item related to the upgradation of the grade pay of LDC and UDC is pending with the National Anomaly Committee. The matter was discussed with Shri S.K. Vyas, who representing the Confederation in the National Anomaly Committee. Shri Vyas has informed me that 11 additional items including item related to the LDC & UDC, have been admitted for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee. Shri Vyas further said that the assurance of taking up these items in the final meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was given to the Staff Side. But any initiative to conduct the final meeting of the NAC has not been come up from the side of the Government. Thus the statement given by the Deputy Secretary (JCA) is not in match with the statement of Shri Vyas, Member NAC.
It is to be noted that in Para IV the Deputy Secretary suggested the CS II to take up the upgradation work of the Grade pay of LDC & UDC in consultation with the Department of Expenditure which itself speak the genuiness of the issue.

Sub: Upgradation of Grade Pay of LDC and UDC in the Administrative branch of Government of India Offices.
The undersigned is directed to refer to CS II ID No. 25/2/2013-CS. II (B) dated 13/08/2013 relating to PMO ID No. 4/3/2013-PMP4/67682 dated 15.07.2013 on the subject mentioned above.
It is noted that the General Secretary of All India Association of Administrative Staff (NG) has demanded revision of Grade pay of LDCs and UDCs in the Administrative branch of Government of India. This is not an issue of anomaly and no such item was before the National Anomaly Committee.
In this regard it may be noted that the Sixth Central Pay Commission had recommended a hierarchical structure and revised pay scales for the Central Secretariat in Para 3.1.9 of its report. A similar recommendation in respect of Non-Secretariat Organization had been made in Para 3.1.14 of the report. Sixth CPC has granted parity in hierarchical structures and revised pay scales to posts existing in the Central Secretariat and Non-Secretariat Organizations up to the level of Assistant. Accordingly, Sixth CPC granted identical revised pay structures to LDCs, UDCs and Assistants both in Central Secretariat and Non-Secretariat Organizations.
Accordingly, the demand of the All India Association of Administrative Staff(NG) for the revision of the Grade Pay of LDCs and UDCs in the Administrative branch of the Government of India is required to be considered by the CS II Division (which deals with the LDCs and UDCs of CSCS) in consultation with the Department of Expenditure who are the nodal Ministry in respect of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. JCA Section has no role in this issue.
This reference in original is accordingly returned to CS-II Division for action as appropriate.
