Subject: Joint Consultative Machinery - Procedure for processing the cases relating to arbitrable issues on which disagreements are recorded in the National Council/Departmental Council.


        The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. of even number dated the 10th June, 1988 laying down the procedure and time schedule for processing the  cases relating to arbitrable issues.

2.     It has now been decided that in respect of awards of the Board of Arbitration (JCM) which are proposed to be rejected / modified after obtaining Cabinet approval a formal Resolution may be moved in Parliament to seek the approval of Parliament for rejection / modification of the award in question instead of just placing the statement of modification / rejection on the Tables of both the Houses. The instructions in paras 5,6 and 7 of the O.M. of even number dated 10.6.1988 may be treated as suitably modified to the extent mentioned above.

3.    The draft of the Resolution mentioned in para 2 above may please be shown to this Department.
