Teachers of Government schools can now send their entries directly for National Award for Teachers. Announcing this, Union Minister for Human Resource Development Shri Prakash Javadekar said that this is a new initiative, as earlier entries were selected by the State Government. He said that Government Teachers themselves can apply for National Award for Teachers. In the new system, Government teachers/heads of schools can nominate themselves online.

Shri Javadekar said National jury will select the best teachers for the National Award on the basis of their innovations and revolutionary changes in education system and style of teachings. The purpose of National Award to the Teachers is to celebrate the unique contribution of some of the finest teachers in the country and to honor those teachers, who through their commitment have not only improved the quality of school education but also enriched the lives of their students.

DA on Transport Allowance at Pre-revised Rates – Noting of DoE

DA on Transport Allowance at Pre-revised Rates – Noting of DoE

“Clarification regarding admissibility of DA on Transport Allowance at pre-revised rates from 01.07.2016 (@132%) and from 01.01.2017 @ 136%”

21/5/2017-E-II(B) Pt.

Department of Expenditure
E.II(B) Section

Reference PUC I to III, (p.1/NLF of DOT, p2.3/cor.,p.u.6/cor.)

References have been received from Department of Telecom, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat (Promotee Assistants) Association seeking clarification regarding admissibility of DA on Transport Allowance at pre-revised rates from 01.07.2016 (@132%) and from 01.01.2017 @ 136%

2. As per recommendations of 7th CPC, rates of Transport Allowance had been revised w.e.f. 01.07.2017. Details of rates during 6th CPC and as prescribed by 7th CPC are given below:

Employees drawing pay in Pay Level Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 7th CPC Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 6th CPC
Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I Employees posted at other Places Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I Employees posted at Other Places
9 and above Rs.7200 + DA thereon Rs.3600 + DA thereon Rs. 3200/- + DA thereon Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon
3 to 8 and those drawing Pay of Rs.24200/- and above in Level 1 & 2 of the Pay Matrix Rs. 3600 + DA thereon Rs. 1800 + DA thereon Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon Rs. 800/- + DA thereon
1 and 2 Rs. 1350 + DA thereon Rs. 900 + DA thereon Rs. 600/- + DA thereon Rs. 400/- + DA thereon

3. It may be seen from the above table that rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by 7th CPC are inclusive of DA @ 125% as on 01.01.2016.

4. It is clearly mentioned in the Resolution dated 25.07.2016 that till a final decision on Allowances is taken based on the recommendations of this Committee, all Allowances will continue to be paid at existing rates in existing pay strucutre, as if the pay had not been revised with effect from 1st day of January, 2016.” Therefore, between 01.01.2016 and 30.06.2017, no DA had been allowed on any Allowance.

5. In case, if the enhanced rate of DA i.e. 132% w.e.f. 0.07.2016 & 136% w.e.f. 01.01.2017 given for pre-revised pay scale of 6th CPC, is allowed on Transport Allowance rates as per 6th CPC, it would exceed the rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission which is not permissible. Therefore, we may clarify to D/o Telecommunication, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat Association (Promottee Assistants) that enhanced rate of DA on 6th CPC rates of Transport Allowance from 01.07.2016 to 30.06.2017, is not admissible. Kindly see for consideration.

7th CPC Transport Allowance to Railway employees – NFIR

7th CPC Transport Allowance to Railway employees – NFIR

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp) / Allowance/2016/Part I

Dated: 08/06/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi
Dear Sir,

Sub: Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission – Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprival of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2 – reg.
Ref: (i) Railways Board’s letter No. PC-V/2017/A/TA/1 dated 17/08/2017 (RBE No. 96/2017)
(ii) NFIR’s Letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC/Allowance/2016/ Part I dated 28/08/2017.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/2015/PNM/NFIR/4 dated 17/20-11-2017.
(iv) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/ Allowance/2016/Part I dated 05/04/2018.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to the references cited above.

NFIR reiterates that pursuant to issuance of instructions dated 17/08/2017, situation has arisent wherein the Railway employees in Pay Level 3, drawing pay Rs. 21,700/- and above and also upto Pay Level 8 hitherto entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600 + DA thereon (in A1/A class cities and in other cities @ Rs 1800 + DA thereon) have been deprived of the said rate (due to the new norm for entitlement)

In this context, Federation furnishes below the rates granted pursuant to acceptance of the recommendations of the 5th CPC and 6th CPC:-
(a) Recommendations of 5th CPC – Transport Allowance
RBE No. 179/1997 (rates w.e.f 01/08/1997)

S.No. Pay Scale of the employees A1/A Class City Other Places
1 Rs. 8000-13500 or above 800 400
2 Rs. 6500-10500 or above but below Rs. 8000-13500 400 200
3 Below Rs. 6500-10500 100 75

From the above, it could be seen that those in pay scale below Rs.6500-10500 i.e. upto Rs. 6000-9800 (S1 to S10A) were allowed Transport Allowance at the uniform rate of Rs. 100/- p.m. in A1/A class cities irrespective of their pay.
(b) After introduction of 6th CPC Pay Band/Grade Pay, the Railway Board vide circular (RBE No. 111/2008 – effective from 01/09/2008 and RBE No. 95/2015) had prescribed following rates for payment of Transport Allowance to the employees.

Employees drawing Grade Pay of Rate of Transport AllowanceFor A1/A class cities
GP 5400 & above 3200 + DA
GP 4200 – 4800,GP below 4200 and pay in pay band = RS 7440 1600 + DA
GP below 4200 and Pay below RS 7440 600 + DA

A comparison of two tables mentioned above, reveals that Railway employees were allowed higher rate of Transport Allowance on their drawing pay Rs. 7440/- irrespective of Grade Pay/Pay Band. However, the modified Board’s instructions issued vide letter dated 03/08/2017 and 17/08/2017,have deprived the Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600+DA thereon to those in Pay Level 1 and 2 (7th CPC) due to imposition of restriction i.e. reaching the pay Rs. 24700/- Federation, therefore requests the Railway Ministry to kindly refer the matter to Ministry of Finance, for mitigating the problem.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

Dated: 08 JUN 2018

To

All Regional Provident Fund Commissioners
In charge of Region

Sub: DELAY IN IMPLEMENTATION OF HON’BLE SUPREME COURT ORDER ON PAYMENT OF PENSION ON HIGHER WAGES – REGARDING.

Sir,

Attention is drawn to Head Office Circular dated 23.03.2017 vide which instructions were issued to all field offices to take necessary action in accordance with the order dated 04.10.2016 of the Hon‘ble Supreme Court in SLP No.33032-33033 of 2015 as approved by the government and as per the provisions of the EPF & MP Act, 1952 and Schemes framed thereunder.
[post_ads]
2. However on review of the information received from field offices it is noticed that following offices as mentioned below have reported for compliance on revised pension on higher wages as referred above.

No. of cases revised for higher wages for the year ending 31st March 2018

3. It has also come to notice that some offices have not complied the instructions of Head Office based on the Hon’ble Supreme Court order dated 04.10.2016 as referred above on revision of the pension on higher wages despite applications received in this regard, by taking the plea that reference has been made by those offices to Head Office and that reply has not been received for the clarifications / guidelines sought from Head Office.

4. In this context, the following observations may be noted:

i) Payment of benefits to the members of the EPS-95 have to be regulated as per the provisions of the scheme and all concerned are required to comply with the said provisions.

ii) The manual for settlement of pension alongwith the module for calculation in the software has already been circulated from time to time.

iii) Even prior to the Hon’ble Supreme Court order dated 04.10.2016 Pension cases on higher wages were being settled as per the scheme provisions by utilizing the existing software.

iv) IS Division has already clarified that the revision of pension on higher wages can be processed by utilizing the 10D special module.

v) No instructions can be kept aside for compliance only on the ground that reference has been made to Head Office for further clarification on assumption basis without attempting to comply those instructions practically. Moreover, the revision of cases as detailed out in Para 2 above clearly shows that many field offices are taking appropriate actions on the detailed order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court duly circulated by Head Office for compliance by utilizing the provisions already existing in the relevant software, whereas some offices are deliberately not taking any action to revise the pension claims to eligible members by taking one plea or the other.

vi) Field functionaries are expected to know the provisions of the Act and Scheme and comply accordingly.

vii) Most of the references made to Head Office are sent directly bypassing the Zonal Office and containing no recommendations / suggestions of RPFC-I and Addl.CPFC (Zone)

viii) Non-settlement of pension cases in respect of eligible members in light of the Supreme Court order dated 04.10.2016 has not only put the concerned members to inconvenience but may also amount to disobedience of instructions of Head Office for compliance of the order of the Hon’ble Apex Court.

5. Therefore, it is once again directed to take appropriate steps to revise the pension cases of all the eligible members as per the existing software and the provisions in the Pension Scheme. All references made to Head Office on modalities of revision of pension as per the Hon’ble Supreme Court order on the matter may be treated as disposed and Non est.

6. The number of grievances due to non-settlement of eligible cases is rising and it is made clear that the concerned RPFC-I / Incharge of the Region will be held responsible for denial delay in settlement of such cases to eligible applicants. If any applicant is found not eligible for revision of pension as per Hon’ble Supreme Court order, the same must be conveyed to the applicant within seven days of receipt of such request.

7. All the reference made to the Head Office on the issue of revision of pension on higher wages are accordingly diSposed of and in case any Field Office still requires any clarification/guideline, specific query may be forwarded through proper channel to the Head Office duly incorporating the observations/Suggestion of RPFC-I/OIC and ACC Zone in this regard.

Yours faithfully,
