  1. It is very good to see that Minimum qualifiction for direct recruitment of LDC has been fixed as PUC II with typewriting. But why the authority is neglecting LDC's grade pay. When authority is required more qualified persons to the post of LDCs then the authority should also think over to increase the grade pay.

    The LDC and UDC staff are taking more responsibility to discharge office work and assisting their superiors in importent Official works. they are maintaining Service Records of all the staff, keeping track of permanent Assets of the Prublic property, drawing salary of all the staff etc., and also drafting Impotent Offical communications. It is very essential that grade pay of LDC should be increased to Rs.2400.00 and Grade pay of UDC should be Rs.2800.00.

    My humbly request to the authorities is to consider this issue and try to do the need full.

    I also request all the LDC's and UDC's they should also give their comment in this issue and if possible try to communicate this issue to the higher authorities.

    Thanking you,

  2. If authoties want to make LDC/UDC more responsible, it should be essential to increase the Grade pay of LDC Rs. 2400 & UDC Rs. 2800/- After pay commision the grade pay of Gr. D employes are 1900/- equal to LDC, so no difference between peon & LDC(Who have passed a competative exam). I request to authorities to take this issue on priorty basis and make better enviorment for working capicity of LDC & UDC.

  3. Yes, I do agree that there is no difference between an LDC(who has been recruited through competative exam) and a peon or messenger working along with u, drawing the same GP. I also recommend for the increase in Grade Pay of LDC to Rs.2400/- to boost up their working spirit.

  4. Yes, i agree with my brothers and sisters serving in the clerical cadre. At present there seems no difference between a fourth class employee and us. There is a mere difference of just Rs. 100, not more than that.
    Our unions must take up the case strongly with the Govt. for incresing working sprit among the clerical staff. Also the Govt. itself must think whether is it justified what they are paying to us in comparison to the work/duties and responsibilites given to us?
    Pls I request that the same may be cosidered in mind both, by the Govt. and our Unions.
    Thanks and all the best for a favourable decision in the matter.

  5. I strongly back the above comments.The grade pay of LDC should be atleast 2400 as there is only a mild difference between LDC and peon as of now whose work load and responsibilities are entirely different.Considering the present scenario of high qualified people getting into the LDC posts, the gradepay should certainly be upgraded to cater the needs.Also the grade pay revisal would help a government LDC to be monetarily independent and get a decent living in the current problematic economical situation.

  7. They promoted me as a LDC from Havaldar and they posted me on promotion transfer for that I am suffering with double establishment, since I am not having any grade pay difference.So kindly consider the Grade Pay for LDC from 1900 to 2400

After putting yrs. of service i.e. more than 30 yrs. also we are not getting the GP of Rs. 4600/- also, whereas compared to other departments of Defence ministry the GP is higher than our.

  9. Yes, I areed to this point. As LDC/UDC are dealing with responsible job and their grade pay should be increased to 2400/2800 respectively. As mentioned in above note that class D employees are already drawing GP of 1800/1900 and where as LDC are drawing GP of 1900.Thus the LDCs who are working with group D employees have lost their interest as grade pay is difference of Rs 100. It is requested that necessary unions and Govt Officials to look in to the matter and favourable decision is anticipated.

  11. 100% it is welcomed that this decision is taken by the Govt. At the same time the decision maker should always see that welfare of these cardes should be increased to such a level that, nobody should think of money from other sources!These LDC/UDC are hadling with all types of information which is very much important to the development of the our nation.Hence when ever they take decision about the hike in the pay,they should clearly take all the aspects befor implimentation.

  14. I agree with the comments offered from various corner, this is clear discrimination to LDC and UDC, they have discharging more responsible works like budget, expenditure, dealing with SR, Cashier, drafting OM/DO letter/Circulars etc. Must be upgraded to Gr.Pay 2400 and 2800 respectively,

  15. Its an injustice with the clerical cadre throughout India imposed by the sixth CPC. I want to ask what kind of criterias or parameters or measures or calculations used for fixation of grade pay by the CPC for clerical cadre, which is unkonwn. The other all posts filled by the service commissions constituted by the Govt.is comparatively far better than clerical cadre who also qualify the written and technical examination conducted by the Staff Selection Commission. Most of the cadres exists in Govt. service they are appointed by means of edn. qualification and an interview were drawing higher grade pay than clerical cadre with same edn.qualifation. It is my request to the authority concerned in the Govt. to review the grade pay of clerical cadre and a dignified grade may be granted so as to overcome the clerical cadre from demoralisation.

  16. Grade Pay of LDC and UDC should be increased as 2400 and 2800 because :

    1. Work/assignment:

    Work/assignment like proper and prompt documentation, record keeping, typing work and presently good computer operating etc. done by the LDC/UDC which is required high skill and mental ability with knowledge.

    2. Promotion opportunity :

    As per recruitment rules LDC/UDC is promoted against the post in the hierarchy after completion of required regular service but most of the time LDC/UDC is not getting the promotion upto 10 years after completion of required regular service in the post due to non availability of higher post in the hierarchy.

    For example : as per rule a LDC is required at least 5 years regular service in the grade for promotion to the post of UDC but he is not getting promotion due to non availability of the post after completion of 15/16 years of regular service, after that he is promoted to the post of UDC in this situation he is required 10 years regular service in the post of UDC for promotion to next higher post in the hierarchy.

    The MACP is not helpful in the situation because the MACP seems like a band-aid on cancer tumor not a surgery.

    Keeping in view of above, it clears that the present grade pay is keeping for LDC/UDC is not justified. Hence, the grade pay of LDC/UDC should be increased i.e. 2400 for LDC and 2800 for UDC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

  17. 1. Sir,
    I am the General Secretary of an Association which exclusivly works for the Ministerial Staff. We had sent a letter to the Prime Minister for the merger of the posts of LDC & UDC and grant of Grade Pay to 2800 in the month of April 10 and the PM Office forwarded the same to DoPT. The matter was put up to the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers and an item on the line was put up in the National JCM by Com. S.K. Vyas. The letter sent by our Association to the PM can be downloaded from http://www.aiamshq.blogspot.com

  18. LDC or Junior Assistant as they are called now should be given a Grade pay of Rs2400 as i believe Rs1900 as GP is quite discriminatory and it really hurts.

  19. The Lower Division Clerk and Upper Division Clerk are taking more responsibility to do office work and assisting their superiors in importent Official works. they are maintaining Service Records of all the staff and officers, keeping track of permanent Assets of the Prublic property, drawing salary of all the staff etc., and also drafting Impotent Officil communications. It is very essential that grade pay of LDC should be increased to Rs.2400.00 and Grade pay of UDC should be Rs.2800.00.
