Sub: Correlation of Piece Work Rates after implementation of 6th CPC pay scales.
I am directed to state that the question of Correlation of piece work rates in the Ordnance Factories Organisation to the revised pay scales, on the basis of recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission has been under consideration of the Government for some time and the President has been pleased to decided on the implementation of the new scheme of correlation of piece work rates as indicated below :-
i) Piece work rates would be correlated to the minimum of the pay band-I + GP Rs.1900 i.e. Rs.5200 + Rs.1900 = Rs.7100/- for all category/grades of workers deployed on piece work system.
ii) The difference between the actual basic pay of a worker and Rs.7100/- shall be paid to him as a separate element as “Incremental Pay”.
iii) The production warrants will be issued in terms of times without 25% built-in incentive. However, as per existing procedure relevant to preparation of wage rolls for piece workers and labour costing, output hours will be reckoned as standard Man Hours (SMH) plus 25% built in incentive.
iv) The time estimates in all the existing labour rate forms will be reviewed as per production requirement.
v) The existing ceiling of 75% on piece work profit will continue.
2. The above orders will take effect from the date of issue of this letter.
3. OFB should made all out efforts to sbsorb the additional cost to the extent possible by periodical revision in material estimate and labour estimate. OFB must scrupulously follow the practice of revision of rates whenever there is change in design, material composition and introduction of latest machines.
4. Operational instructions will be issued by Ordnance Factory Board.
5. This issue with the concurrence of the Defence Finance vide their diary No.97/IF/DP-I dated 4.3.2014.

Sub: - Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission.
We have gone through the Terms of Reference of 7th Central Pay Commission approved and notified by the Government on 28.02.2014. We find that the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government is at variance in many respects to the Draft Terms of Reference the Staff Side had submitted to you on 25.10.2013 after holding in-house discussion on 24.10.2013.
At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24.10.2013, it was agreed that the Government would consider our suggestions in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of the Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter.
We regret to inform you that no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the Official Side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference. We find that the Government has rejected the suggestions of Staff Side for either taking a decision in the matter of Interim Relief, Merger of DA, representation of labour nominee in the Commission itself, inclusion of the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the purview of the 7th CPC, bringing parity in pension between the past and present pensioners, covering the employees appointed on or after 01.01.2004 within the ambit of the Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, date of effect, settlement of the pending items in the National Anomaly Committee etc. or referring those issues to the Commission itself for an Interim Report.
Besides, we are to state that the existing Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) Scheme, being a bilateral agreement, cannot be subjected to scrutiny and examination by the 7th CPC.
We, therefore request you to kindly convene a meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM) to discuss the issue, so as to make amendments to the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government arbitrarily.

JUDGMENT COPY OF STEPPING UP CASE FILED BY AIPAEA IN THE PR.CAT, NEW DELHI
No withdrawal of CGHS Cashless Scheme – Health Ministry
There have been reports in the Media that private hospitals on the panel of CGHS are denying credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries for delay in settlement of hospitals bills. Lower package rates and inadmissible deductions etc. have also been reported to be the other reasons for withdrawal of agreed cashless /credit facilities.
In this regard, the CGHS beneficiaries are advised not to be guided by such misleading information. Delay in payments in the last quarter of the financial year due to budgetary constraints is not a new phenomenon and the hospitals are aware of it. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has taken special steps and the pendency is likely to be cleared within a week.
CGHS has already invited bids for revision of package rates through a transparent tender process. The last date for submission of bids is 10th March, 2014. Measures have also been taken to streamline the payment related issues in the ensuing empanelment process.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will ensure that the CGHS empanelled private hospitals continue to extend cashless /credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries in compliance with the terms and conditions as laid down in the Memorandum of Agreement signed by them with CGHS. As per the information received by the Ministry, most of the private hospitals are continuing to extend the cashless facilities to the CGHS beneficiaries.
