ALL INDIA NAVODAYA VIDYALAYA
A MESSAGE BY AINVSA TO NVS AUTHORITIES
Management is the art and science of “getting things done through people” and communications is the “essence of it”.
Communication helps any organization, for it
· Leads to better interpersonal skills;
· Helps reduce organizational conflicts;
· Assists in networking with other people;
· Helps in collaborating with others; and
· Creates a better spirit of cooperation within the organization.
There are in fact four main different channels within an organization:
1. Downward Communication
2. Upward Communication
3. Horrizontal or lateral communication
4. Diagonal or cross-wise communication
AINVSA Suggests NVS to have Vertical type of Communication, where the flow is both upward and downward in movement. This ensures a healthy state of flow of information and fosters a give and take relationship within the organization or institution.
If the employees get the feeling that they are actively participating in the decision-making process, they will usually perform better at their jobs. While most of the communication at the JNVs sees to be downward, it is essential to have upward communication also, which will lead to the creation of a motivated workforce.
Dan O’ Hair , “ Decisions made by groups are of higher quality than decisions made by individuals working alone”. Rightly, in today’s business climate of “ open door policy” subordinates are even encouraged to participate in decision-making or paricipative management, in the interest of the organisation or institution.
Suggestions were not taken by AINVSA during the framing of Transfer Policy. Suggestions were invited ,if any, from only the Principals of the JNVs, who were not and are not the true spokes man of the teaching and non teaching staff in letter and spirit. Hence, Transfer Policy should be revised and reconsidered on the basis of suggestions given by AINVSA
Ever since its inception AINVSA has been striving hard for the progress of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti and its staff without discrimination by putting forth creative suggestions and enlightening the employees on the need of synergizing their efforts enthusiasm and creativity and extending helping hand to bringing the staff under the single fold so as to develop an organizational citizenship among them. AINVSA has always been attempting to bring to the notice of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti and Ministers of HRD and Finance regarding the various welfare measures to be adopted to keep the morale of the employees at a very high level so as to enable them to make maximum contribution for the cause of education thus catalyzing national progress.
The second Annual conference of AINVSA was held at Kottayam in 1997.Sri.VBK Moorthy was elected President and Sri.Kantikar as the Vice-President. Sri.Samuel,Sri K Suresh.Miss Prameeladevi and Mrs.Annakutty were elected as the joint secretaries. All other erstwhile office bearers were retained. AINVSA was able to form units in Kerala, Karnataka Andra Pradesh as well as in Pune and in the far-flung districts of Shillong region thanks to the perseverance and spirit of devotion displayed by our members. Hyderabad Regional Committee was formed under the leadership of Sri.C D Joy and Sri.Durga Prasad and the Kerala State Committee was led by Sri.Praphakaran, Sri.Roy P John and
We had had 135 units spread all over
In 1999 the Association got affiliated to the Akil Bharatiys Rashtriya Sainik Mahasangh. This enabled us in widening the horizons of our endeavours. The 4th National Conference was held at Matha Tourist home Ernakulam in 2001. The convention passed a resolution for getting Pension Scheme implemented even by moving the Court of Law in case it becomes unavoidable. The litigation was made in the CAT Ernakulam branch. Sri.KRB Kaimal Senior advocate of the high court of Kerala appeared for us. The CAT delivered a favourable direction in this regard. Nevertheless, unfortunately since the direction of the CAT was not implemented, contempt of court petition was filed by us .The Govt. of India acted quickly forwarding an apology through the undersecretary to the court. The court was also pleased to remark that we were free to pursue our case further. Besides, the AINVSA has already given representation to the Ministry that it will be forced to take legal steps if our just demands are not met within a reasonable period of time..
Presently the association is keenly interested in pressuring the Government of India in implementing pension scheme for the employees of NVS. Though there are hordes of other demands, as the need of the hour is getting the pension scheme implemented on GOI pattern AINVSA considers it as the most important issue at present. In the Meeting held at Ooty Lodge Kottayam on 10th April 2005.was presided by Sri. T.P.Mani Gen.Secretary AINVSA. pension scheme was the crux of the matter. It was decided to chalk out a plan for meeting the M.Ps. of various constituencies to exert political pressure for implementation of pension scheme. It was also decided to send a memorandum to the Hon�ble Finance Minister regarding pension scheme and other demands. The memorandum was discussed in detail and was approved by the members.
