एलटीसी — केन्द्रीय कर्मचारी कर सकेंगे विदेश भ्रमण : कार्मिक मंत्रालय ने तैयार किया प्रस्ताव

एलटीसी — केन्द्रीय कर्मचारी कर सकेंगे विदेश भ्रमण : कार्मिक मंत्रालय ने तैयार किया प्रस्ताव केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों के लिए अच्छी खबर, विदेश जाने के लिए सरकार देगी ये सुविधाएं

इसके तहत चपरासी से लेकर अधिकारी तक सभी विदेश भ्रमण के योग्य होंगे। इसे वित्त मंत्रालय और प्रधानमंतत्री कार्यालय से औपचारिक मंजूरी मिल चुकी है।

ltc-facility-for-foreign-tour-reg
नई दिल्ली [ प्रेट्र ] । देश की आजादी के 71 साल बाद केंद्र सरकार के 48 लाख कर्मचारियों को विदेश भ्रमण का अवसर मिलने जा रहा है। मौजूदा व्यवस्था के तहत ये कर्मचारी अवकाश यात्रा रियायत (एलटीसी) के जरिए केवल अपने देश में ही घूम-फिर सकते हैं। इसमें खास बात है कि एलटीसी के नए नियम जो कि अगले दो-तीन माह में लागू हो जाएंगे। नियम के अंतर्गत किसी भी विभाग में चपरासी से लेकर अधिकारी तक सभी विदेश भ्रमण के योग्य होंगे। इसे वित्त मंत्रालय और प्रधानमंतत्री कार्यालय से औपचारिक मंजूरी मिल चुकी है। केवल इस पर मुहर लगना शेष है।

एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारियों ने गुरुवार को इस आशय की जानकारी दी। अधिकारी ने बताया कि कार्मिक मंत्रालय ने इस बारे में एक प्रस्ताव तैयार किया है। गृह, पर्यटन, नागरिक उड्डयन और व्यय विभाग जैसे संबंधित विभागों से टिप्पणी मांगी है। विदेश मंत्रालय ने इस प्रस्ताव में पांच मध्य एशियाई देशों कजाखिस्तान, तुर्कमेनिस्तान, उजबेकिस्तान, किरगिस्तान और ताजिकिस्तान को एलटीसी के तहत लाने की बात रखी थी।

केंद्र सरकार के कर्मचारियों को इन देशों के भ्रमण पर जाने की इजाजत देने का उद्देश्य रणनीतिक रूप से महत्वपूर्ण मध्य एशिया के इन देशों में भारत की उपस्थिति दर्ज कराना है। इससे पूर्व मार्च में सरकार ने कहा था कि उसने अपने कर्मचारियों को एलटीसी पर दक्षेस देशों की यात्रा करने से जुड़े एक प्रस्ताव को खारिज कर दिया था।

राजधानी और शताब्दी में फ्लेक्सी फेयर होगा मान्य

एलटीसी के तहत राजधानी, शताब्दी और दूरंतो ट्रेनों में गतिशील किराया व्यवस्था के तहत यात्रा की अनुमति होगी। नियमों के तहत सरकारी कर्मचारी जब एलटीसी लेते हैं तो उन्हें यात्रा किराया का पूरा पैसा मिलता है। विभिन्न तबकों से एलटीसी के तहत इन ट्रेनों में टिकट बुकिंग के समय गतिशील किराया की स्वीकार्यता के बारे में स्पष्टीकरण मांगे गए थे। इसके बाद डीओपीटी ने यह निर्देश जारी किया।

जानें, क्‍या होगा लाभ
  • केंद्रीय कर्मचारी अब एलटीसी के तहत अपनी यात्रा शुरू होने के चार महीने पहले एडवांस ले सकेंगे।
  • मौजूदा नियम के तहत एक कर्मचारी के स्वयं और अपने परिवार के सदस्यों के लिए, उनकी प्रस्तावित एलटीसी यात्रा पर जाने की तारीख से 65 दिन पूर्व एडवांस लेने की अनुमति प्रदान करते हैं।
  • कार्मिक एवं प्रशिक्षण मंत्रालय की ओर से जारी आदेश में कहा गया है कि रेल मंत्रालय ने 1 अप्रैल 2015 से अग्रिम आरक्षण के लिए बुकिंग समय 60 से बढ़ाकर 120 दिन कर दिया है।
  • रेल से यात्रा करने की सूरत में सरकारी कर्मचारियों की एलटीसी एडवांस की समय सीमा 65 दिन से बढ़ाकर 125 दिन किया गया।
  • एलटीसी के तहत यात्रा अन्य तरीकों जैसे वायुयान, समुद्र या सड़क के जरिए हैं, की सूरत में एलटीसी एडवांस की सीमा 65 दिन ही रहेगी।
  • कर्मचारियों को राजधानी और शताब्दी जैसी ट्रेनों में उपलब्ध कैटरिंग सुविधा के लाभ को आवश्यक रूप से लेना होगा और इसका मूल्य टिकट में शामिल होगा।

राष्ट्रीय विसंगति समिति (NAC) की बैठक दिनांक 17 जुलाई 2018 को

with 0 Comment

राष्ट्रीय विसंगति समिति (NAC) की बैठक दिनांक 17 जुलाई 2018 को

केन्द्रीय कर्मी सातवीं वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों के कार्यान्वयन के बाद उत्पन्न हुई अपनी वेतन विसंगति को हल करने की उत्सुकता से इंतजार कर रहे हैं। सातवीं सीपीसी की सिफारिशें दो चरणों में लागू हुई थीं। डीए को नए वेतन मैट्रिक्स के अनुसार अगस्त 2016 से संशोधित किया गया था जिसके बाद लगभग दो साल की अवधि बीत गई है।


हाल ही में एनजेसीए ने न्यूनतम वेतन, एनपीएस और पेंशन मुद्दों जैसे लंबे लंबित मुद्दों के बारे में कैबिनेट सचिव, भारत सरकार को एक पत्र लिखा था। एनजेसीए ने पत्र में अपनी चिंताओं को व्यक्त किया है और केंद्र सरकार को सूचित किया है कि अगर मुद्दों को संबोधित नहीं किया जाता है तो वे अपनी स्थगित अनिश्चितकालीन हड़ताल दुबारा विचार करने पर मजबूर होंगे। इस पत्र के बाद अचानक से सरकार ने 17-7-2018 को राष्ट्रीय विसंगति समिति की बैठक आयोजित करने का फैसला किया।


आइए बैठक के नतीजे की प्रतीक्षा करें!
