    Dear Sir,Nation
    It is a good news, as taken by National Alliance of Journalists Unions meeting at DUJ Office New Delhi. It is a necessary for Wage revision in periodic time frame and also for proper implementation
    Particularly in Majithia Wage Board, there are lots of confusion regarding implementation. Some Newspapers implemented with wrong way and as per direction of INS (Indian Newspaper Society-Employers association). Due to the misinterpretation of judgment of Supreme Court dated 7th February, 2014, majority managements implemented the recommendations of Majithia Wage Board with their own way, as taking DA points as 189 for rate of nuteralisation, from 11-11-11.
    They also fitment the fixation from 11-11-11.
    As per the order of Govt Notification dated 11-11-11 cleat it that the fitment/fixation will be from 17-2010.
    In the said order it is clear that the CPI 167 will be for rate of nuetralisation and biannually from July to Dec. and January to June, ue to this we getting the less DA of 22 points (near about Rs 2000 to Rs. 3000).
    Majority Managements stop the annual increment after completing the every year service, due to the reaching at maximum revised Scale. (as they used the clause-(i) No employee shall get more than the maximum of the revised scale.
    Revised scale scales are too lower, due to this salary of the many old employees reduced in every Staff.
    My simple request to the concerned please send the proper information about DA calculation and also regarding annual increment..
    Please inform me on my email also as— kgmmatale@gmail.com
    Thanks!!!
