Council with a view to making effective use of Joint Consultative Machinery

2. From the information received, it has been learnt that Departmental
Councils have not been constituted in all Ministries/Departments and in
some cases, though the Departmental Councils have been constituted, regular
meetings are not being held. It is also to be submitted for kind
information that guidelines regarding constitution of Departmental Council
are given in JCM Brochure which is available in the public domain on the
website of the Department http://persmin.nic.in –>Department of
personnel & Training (DOPT) –> Downloads –> Acts & Rules
–> Brochure on JCM & CA.

3. The JCM Scheme provides for Departmental Councils at the level of
individual Ministries/Departments, including their attached and subordinate
offices. The Staff Side of JCM, however, has been complaining that regular
dialogue with the Staff Side through the mechanism of Departmental Councils
at Ministry/Department level is not happening. Meetings of Departmental
Council at periodic intervals are essential as they help in resolving
differences between the Government and the Staff Side. 
4. It is, therefore, requested that the relevant information, as asked for,
on the Departmental Council meetings held during previous 5 years may
kindly be sent at the earliest.
