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.No.3/23/85-JCA dated the 10th June, 1988 and 20th February, 1989 on the above subject, which inter-alia provides that the approval of the Parliament would be sought in respect of Awards of the Board of Arbitration which are proposed to be rejected / modified by way of moving a Resolution in both the Houses of Parliament.

2.     The Staff Side had been demanding that they may be informed about the Government’s proposal to modify or reject an Award. The issue had been considered in the Standing Committee meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 7th March, 1990 wherein it was decided that the Staff Side would be intimated immediately after a decision is taken to reject or modify the Award. However, it would not be possible to inform the Staff Side the exact date on which the Resolution would be moved in parliament as it would not be possible to anticipate the business before the Parliament, well in advance.

3.     The above decision of the Standing Committee is brought to the notice of all concerned for information and necessary action.
