The Cabinet Secretary,

Cabinet Secretariat,
Rashtrapathi Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Grant of ‘ad-hoc bonus’ for the Central Autonomous Bodies for 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-2018- reg.

Kindly call for our earlier letter of even number dated October 30, 2017(copy enclosed), whereby it was requested, while thanking the government for having implemented VII CPC recommendations in case of staff of the Central Autonomous Bodies, that, their genuine grievance in respect of payment PLB/Ad-hoc bonus to these staff should also be considered .

It would be pertinent to recall that, Finance Ministry used to extend the benefit of PLB/Ad-hoc Bonus to the Central Autonomous Bodies also at par with other Central Government employees till the year 2014-15. Surprisingly, employees of the Central Autonomous Bodies have been deprived of this benefit after the year 2014-15 without assigning any bonafide reason thereto.

It is, therefore, requested that, necessary action may kindly be taken for granting ad-hoc bonus to the Central Autonomous Bodies also on par with the Central Government employees for the years 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-2018, as was being done till the year 2014-15 in the larger interest of justice and parity.

Sincerely Yours,

Wrong Analysis and recommendations about NDA under 7th CPC report

Wrong Analysis and recommendations about NDA under 7th CPC report

Board’s attention is invited towards this federation’s letter of even number dated 2nd April, 2018 (copy enclosed), vide which it was pointed out that, on implementation of new formula, recommended by the VII CPC, rates of Night Duty Allowance get reduced rather than any improvement therein……

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Wrong Analysis and recommendations about NDA under 7th CPC report

Ref.: (i) Report of 7th CPC(Para 8.17.71 to 77) reg. Night Duty Allowance
(ii) RBE No.61/2016(Last NDA Rate of 6th CPC when DA at 125%)
(iii) RBE No.36/2018 No.E(P&A)II-2017/HW-1 dated 08.03.2018

Board’s attention is invited towards this federation’s letter of even number dated 2nd April, 2018 (copy enclosed), vide which it was pointed out that, on implementation of new formula, recommended by the VII CPC, rates of Night Duty Allowance get reduced rather than any improvement therein.

A calculation table was also appended in our letter referred to above, explaining the actual reduction in Night Duty Allowance on implementation of current formula, recommended by the VII CPC, which we are again quoting hereunder for ready reference:-

Rates of Night Duty Allowance, as per 6th CPC formula (mean value of Pay Band + GP) + DA)/215, changed by the 7th CPC, i.e. (Basic Pay + DA)/200, will decline by 20% to 40% from the existing, i.e.

Pay Scales As on 01.01.2016 when DA 125% (as per 6th CPC) As on 01.07.2017 when DA 139% (as per 6thCPC, rate not declared by the Board) As on 01.07.2017 when DA 5% (as per 7th CPC)
5200-20200-1800 151.75 161.20 94.50
5200-20200-1900 152.80 162.30 104.48
5200-20200-2000 153.85 163.40 113.93
5200-20200-2400 158.00 167.85 133.88
5200-20200-2800 162.20 172.30 153.30
9300-34800-4200 274.70 291.80 185.85
9300-34800-4600 and above 278.90 296.25 235.73

Also rates of the NDA were not declared by the Railway Board on 01.07.2016 and 01.01.2017 as per 6th CPC.

It is, therefore, reiterated that, the issue may be looked into afresh in the light of the foregoing, and improvement in the formula, recommended by the VII CPC, may be done, so that, rates of Night Duty Allowance get improved rather than any reduction therein.

This may kindly be treated as “Most Urgent” as there is serious discontentment brewing among the staff, particularly Running and Traffic Staff and other Safety Categories Staff who have to invariably perform night duty.

Yours faithfully,

DoPT: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964

All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964

DoPT

MOST IMMEDIATE
OUT TODAY

No.45018/1/2017-Vig.

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 18th September, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding.

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), New Delhi has decided to observe “All India Protest Day” on 19th September, 2018 in support of the following issues:

i. Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula,
ii. Scrapping of the New Contributory Pension Scheme; and
iii. Allow Option No. 1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.

2. The instructions issued by the Department of Personnel and Training prohibit the Government servants from participating in any form of strike including mass casual leave, go slow or any action that abet any form of strike in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(I) of the Fundamental Rules, pay and allowances is not admissible to an employee for his absence from duty without any authority. As to the concomitant rights of an Association after it is formed, they cannot be different from the rights which can be claimed by the individual members of which the Association is composed. It follows that the right to form an Association does not include any guaranteed right to strike. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also ruled in several judgments that going on a strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by the Government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. No.33012/1/(s)/2008-Estt.(B) dated 12.9.2008, on the subject for strict compliance (enclosed as Annexure-A).

3. All officers are requested that the above instructions may be brought to the notice of the employees working under their control. All officers are also requested not to sanction Casual Leave or any other kind of leave to the officers and employees, if applied for, during the period of proposed protest, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of protest, i.e., 19.09.2018.

Good news for NPS employees

NPS employees

Breaking News: Good news for NPS employees

  * Winning staff case in Supreme Court on old pension restoration *

In the case of old pension reinstatement, NPS employees today won a grand victory in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the employees’ old pension scheme. In the favor of the old pension, in favor of the employees and the Indian government respectively, the Supreme Court concluded that the new pension scheme is not in the interest of the employees.The court ruled that, on the basis of the cancellation of the old pension from April 1, 2004, the government had enforced the NPS was wrong. Employees should be given all the benefits of old pension from the date of their appointment. The court rejected all the arguments in favor of the government’s NPS and all the provisions of the financial system in implementing the old pension scheme of the government.

With this judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court, the country’s pensioners have received gravitational force in their struggle and judicial lobbying.

Fixation of pay in respect of employees appointed on or after 01.01.2006 in the Grade of 4280 (PR)

Fixation of pay of an employee appointed on or after 01.01.2006 in the Grade of 4280 (PR) – J&K

GOVERNMENT OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR
FINANCE DEPARTMENT

Civil Secretariat, Srinagar/Jammu

O.M. No. A/35 (09)-560

Dated: 16 -08-2018

Subject:- Fixation of pay in respect of employees appointed on or after 01.01.2006 in the Grade of 4280 (PR).

Doubts have been expressed by various quarters regarding fixation of pay of an employee appointed to the post carrying Grade Pay of 4210,4220,4240,4260 and 4280 in PB-3- 9300-34800 (PR), on or after 01.01.2006 in terms of SRO 266 of 2009 dated 31.08.2009 read with SRO 42 of 2011.

The issue has been examined in the Finance Department and it has been observed that consequent to notification of Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009 vide SRO 93 of 2009 dated 15.04.2009, the pre-revised pay scales of 5000-8000, 5150-8300, 5500­9000,5600-9100, 5700-10100 and 6500-10500 were clubbed into single PB-2 – 9300-34800 (PR) with common Grade Pay of 4200. This created practical impediments in making appointments to various posts under these pre-revised pay scales/ Grade Pays, particularly in making promotions both functional or in-situ from one Grade Pay to another within the scales so clubbed. The promotion within these scales would mean nothing except change of designation.

In order to overcome the bottlenecks coming in the way of making appointments or promotions in these pre-revised scales, Grade Pays of 4210,4220,4240,4260 and 4280 were introduced to pave way for promotion from one post to another scale.

Accordingly, it is clarified that the newly incorporated Grade Pays viz 4210,4220,4240,4260 and 4280 under SRO 42 of 2011 are applicable to all employees in the revised pay structure, but as far as the applicability of ready reckoner attached to said SRO is concerned, same is relevant for pay revision of employees who have been appointed before 01.01.2006, and were holding these posts on 01.01.2006 to arrive at their revised pay on 01.01.2006 in the revised pay structure in accordance with Rule 7 of J&K Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009.

It is also clarified that SRO 42 of 2011 is not an amendment to Rule (8) of Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009, prescribing fixation of pay of direct entrants to Government service on or after 01.01.2006, but is an insertion/ substitution of new Grade Pays in Section-I of first schedule attached to Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009 against S.Nos 11 to 16 of Pay Band-2.

Clarifications regarding payment of Breakdown Allowance

Regarding payment of Breakdown Allowance

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

 RBE No. 138/2018

No.E(P&A)II-2017/BDA-1 

New Delhi, dated 14.09.2018.

The General Mangers/OSDs/CAOs,
All Indian Railways & Production Units.
(As per mailing list).

Sub: Clarifications regarding payment of Breakdown Allowance.

Ref:- Board’s letter of even number dated 30.08.2017 (RBE No.106/2017)

In context of Board’s letter cited above, references have been received in Board’s office from some Zonal Railways, seeking clarifications regarding entitlement of Breakdown allowance to Technician Gr.11l drawing pay in higher level i.e. Pay level 3 under MACPS rather than the pay level available for the post. The issue has also been raised by AIRF in PNM Forum as item No.15/2018 and NFIR in their letter dated 11.04.2018.

2. The matter has been examined in Board’s office and it has been observed that the MACP Scheme provides for grant of financial upgradation to the employees on personal basis and there occurs no change in the designation, classification or status. The concerned employees continue to discharge the duties and responsibilities of the post held by them. In view of this, it is clarified that the Breakdown Allowance has to be paid at the rate(s) as prescribed against the respective post mentioned in para-1 of Board’s letter cit. 30.08.2017. Accordingly, Technician Gr.III though drawing pay in higher pay level under MACPS, are entitled for Breakdown Allowance at the rates prescribed for the post held by them.

3. The other terms and conditions relating to Breakdown Allowance will remain the same.

4. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

5. Please acknowledge receipt.

Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016

Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016

NFIR

National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

No.II/23/Part III

Dated: 11/09/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board.
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 26/2/2017.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/23/Part III dated 12/03/2018.
(iii) Railway Board’s reply vide No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 09/05/2018 addressed to GS/NFIR.
(iv) NFIR’s PNM Agenda Item No.18 sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018.

Federation desires to invite kind attention of Railway Board to the letter dated 26/12/2017 wherein instructions have been issued for revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways with retrospective effect i.e. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016. Federation expresses its anguish over non-appreciation of ground reality highlighted by the Federation vide its letter dated 12/03/2018 for taking remedial action and instead, sent reply vide letter dated 09/05/2018 that the revision in the flat rate of license fee is based on the pattern of Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Due to this negative approach, the Federation was compelled to raise the issue vide PNM Agenda Item No. 18 (sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018), but unfortunately, instructions have not been modified yet.

Besides above, the Federation desires to convey to the Railway Board that the reports are received from the NFIR affiliated Unions that though outstanding dues towards office rent, electricity, telephone and water charges have already been cleared by the affiliates, the Divisional Administrations have raised bills for payment arrears towards rentals of office accommodation from 01/07/2010 to 30/06/2013, 01/07/2013 to 30/06/2016 and 01/07/2016 to 31/03/2018. While the Board’s instructions dated 26/12/2017 are unjustified, the action of Railway Administration, demanding payment of arrears on account of Office rent of the accommodations in possession of the affiliated Unions is totally wrong.

As the subject has already been taken up by the Federation in the PNM fora at Board’s level, it is urged that the instructions dated26/12/2017 be kept in abeyance or withdrawn.

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

All India Pension Adalat – 600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

All India Pension Adalat – 600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions

MoS Dr Jitendra Singh to inaugurate the All India Pension Adalat and give away Anubhav Awards on Tuesday

600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

17 SEP 2018

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh will inaugurate the All India Pension Adalat here tomorrow.

The Pension Adalat, being organised by the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare (DoP&PW), will be one of the largest exercises for Pensioners’ Welfare ever undertaken by the Government as part of Good Governance dedicated to Central Government Pensioners. It is a unique effort wherein on a single day all the Central Government Ministries would be conducting their respective Pension Adalats in which on-the-spot resolution would be provided across the table to the grievance holder.

All the stakeholders of the pensioner’s case viz. the Department, Pay and Account Officer, the concerned Bank, along with the pensioner or his representative, will settle the grievance within the framework of extant rules. This is a great reformative measure to get the grievances resolved in the quickest possible way by avoiding unnecessary recourse by the pensioners to Courts.

It is expected that this measure will resolve issues of thousands of pensioners in one day, in a single sitting across the country. In addition to the Central Ministries, the Offices of Accountant General would be separately addressing the Pensioner grievances of All-India Service officers, in all the states across the country.

Besides the Pension Adalat, a Pre-Retirement Counselling (PRC) is also scheduled for the Central Government employees who are about to retire in the next six months. 600 retiring Central Government employees will participate in this PRC out of which a significant number will also be from the Central Armed Police Forces. The objective of the PRC Workshop is to create awareness about post-retirement entitlements as well as to educate them on advance planning for retirement including medical facilities and participation in voluntary activities after retirement.

On the occasion, Dr. Jitendra Singh will also give away the Anubhav Awards-2018 to recognise the contribution of the Central Government employees to the Anubhav Portal which is designed to create an institutional memory for successive generations of Central Government employees. It may be recalled that the Anubhav scheme had been instituted at the call of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in the year 2015. This is meant to encourage retiring and retired employees to submit an account of their experiences while working in the government and thereby create an institutional memory to help in future governance as well as to motivate and inspire different generations of government officials in their respective assignments. The scheme has resulted in registering more than 5,000 Anubhavs from Government employees till date from 91 Departments.
