Dated: 10th November, 2017

To,

All Heads of Circles,

Subject: Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘C’ employees in Department of Posts.

Sir/Madam,

The Cadre Restructuring Order of Group ‘C’ employees was issued vide this office letter of even number dated 27.05.2016. Later on, some Circles requested for further clarification, which were issued vide this office letter of even number dated 11.11.2016. However, Circles still faced with problems while implementing the orders.

2. Issues like norms for allotment of number of LSG posts, instructions for identification of surplus LSG posts other than C and B class POs, identification of HSG-I (NFG) posts, divisionalisation of LSG Cadre, relaxation of minimum qualifying service for promotion to HSG-II and HSG-I and date of effect of the orders etc. needed further clarification.

3. Therefore, on representation of various Staff Unions to the Secretary (Posts) regarding the issues arising out of implementation of Cadre Restructuring, a Committee was constituted vide Office Order of even number dated 09.06.2017, under the Chairmanship of Sh. Charles Lobo, CPMG Karnataka Circle and DDG (Estt), PMG (M&BD), Chennai and PMG, Pune Region as its members to examine all such issues. The Committee after thorough consultation, including one with the staff representatives, submitted its report on 22.09.2017.

4. The recommendations of the Committee, as accepted by the Competent Authority, are as under:

4.1 Uniform Guidelines for identifying the surplus LSG posts other than Single Handed and Double Handed (C and B Class) Post Offices:

(i) Treasurer posts should not be identified for upgradation as Treasurer posts are PA posts with special cash handling allowance.

(ii) The posts of System Administrator, Marketing Executive, DO (PLI) etc. are not cadre specific posts. Therefore, any suitable official can be deployed against these posts.

(iii) As per the Recruitment Rules, the PAs of Foreign Posts are recruited separately and trained for Foreign Post. But on promotion to LSG they are transferable to other LSG posts on postal side and vice versa. Hence extending the benefit of cadre restructuring to officials of Foreign Post in LSG and above cadres is in order as far as foreign post is concerned. Only Mumbai Foreign Post is treated as separate Foreign Post unit.

(iv) The present cadre restructuring order is not applicable to RLO. Hence RLO staff should not be included in cadre restructuring.

(v) After upgrading C and 8 class SPM posts to LSG remaining LSG posts allotted to the Circle can be utilized as per functional requirement. The officials occupying these restructured LSG posts will have either or both supervisory and operative responsibilities as per allocation ofwork by competent authority.

(vi) The SPMs posts of C and B class post offices are upgraded to LSG without following the LSG norm of 5:1. Therefore, it is not practicable to prescribe the norm for other restructured LSG posts. Number of posts to be created in each office will be as per functional requirement.

(vii) Accountants are Postal Assistants only who have passed the PO & RMS Accountants examination. They are eligible for promotion as per Recruitment Rules. Norm based LSG accountants posts can be upgraded to HSG II within the number of posts allotted to the circle.

(viii) The post of Accountant in Divisional Office can be upgraded to LSG. If there is more than one post of Accountant in HPOs, some may be upgraded to LSG while leaving some others for time scale Accountants.

(ix) More Posts may be identified in bigger offices like HPOs and MDGs. It is not possible to specify the number of posts as the staff strength and functional requirements vary from office to office. Thereafter PM Grade-III/HSG I pre restructured HPOs may be given preference for creation of posts. PM Grade II/HSG II HPOs, PM Grade III/HSG I MDG, PM Grade II/ HSG II SO/MDG, (all pre restructured) may be preferred for creation of posts in that order based on functional requirement. Circles should ensure that the posts are not disproportionately concentrated in a few offices/cities.

(x) In charge CPC, Foreign post (except Mumbai Foreign Post), PSD and CSD or other offices can be considered for upgradation of posts to LSG.

(xi) If Circles are left with surplus LSG posts, then limited number of posts in Divisional Office and important delivery offices may be identified for upgradation.

(xii) All the posts of SPMs in B and C class offices should be upgraded to LSG and all LSG norm based and A class offices should be upgraded to HSG II as a result of the implementation of the orders.

4.2 Identification of NFG posts in HSG I: Only 10 percent of HSG I posts i.e. 235 posts have been approved for NFG scale. Therefore it is not possible to promote all HSG I officials who are completing 2 years of service in HSG I. Although there is need to identify these posts for promotion from HSG l, in order to avoid inconvenience to staff in the initial stage and purely as a temporary measure, the officials can be given NFG on the basis of seniority wherever they are posted in HSG l by upgrading the HSG I post to NFG and simultaneously downgrading the NFC position to HSG-I elsewhere. In due course of time the posts need to be identified.

4.3 LSG Cadre: The Committee examined the issue of Divisionalization of LSG Cadre. The Committee observed that there are some mofussil Divisions which have more B and C class offices now upgraded to LSG but are having very less HSG II and HSG I offices. On the other hand there will be city Divisions where the number of B and C class post offices now upgraded to LSG are very less. Divisionalization will provide less opportunity for staff of these divisions to get LSG promotion and in turn affect their HSG promotions. The Divisionalization will create promotional disparity between employees in different Divisions. Therefore, the Committee’s recommendation not to Divisionalize LSG cadre has been accepted. It will remain a circle cadre. However, for better management of transfer and postings and to minimize inconvenience to the staff, Circle would allot officials to Regions for further allotment to Divisions, which in turn shall issue the posting orders in case. of the LSG officials and rotational transfer orders thereafter till such time that they remain allotted to that Division by the Region. At any time the Circle or Region may allot these LSG officials to any other Region or Division respectively.

4.4 Revision of Leave Reserve (LR) strength consequent upon upgradation to LSG. It has been observed that consequent on cadre restructuring the LR strength would be considerably reduced. The Committee observed that the postmaster in restructured LSG grade working in B and C class offices have to do operative work. Similarly restructured LSG PAs in other post offices have to do operative/supervisory work. Therefore, the Committee’s recommendation that considering the PA strength and the restructured LSG strength for calculation of LR strength will be in order, has been accepted.

4.5 Date of Effect of the Orders and completion of restructuring: For the sake of uniformity, the promotion will be effective from the date of issue of the original order dated 27.05.2016 as per existing instructions on the subject. It will be applicable to all eligible officials including those who were in service but now retired.

5. The rationalization of posts, as recommended by the Committee and accepted by the Competent Authority, is attached as Annexure-I.

6. In view of the above, all the Circles are requested to take immediate necessary action to implement the Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘C’ employees, keeping in view the above instructions without any further delay. All attempts should be made to complete the exercise of conducting DPCs by 31.12.2017 and the whole exercise, including transfer/posting Orders, must be completed by 31.01.2018.

Yours faithfully

Rrevised-salaries-gratuity-allowances,-7thCPC-judges

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the revision in the salaries, gratuity, allowances, pension etc. of the Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts and retired Judges of Supreme Court and High Courts. It follows the implementation of recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Civil Servants.

The approval will pave the way for necessary amendments in the two laws viz. Supreme Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1958 and High Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1954, which govern the salaries of Chief Justice of India (CJI), Judges of Supreme Court of India, Chief Justices and all Judges of High Courts.

The increase in the salary and allowances etc. will benefit 31 Judges of Supreme Court of India (including the CJI) and 1079 Judges(including the Chief Justices) of High Courts. Besides, approximately 2500 retired Judges will also be benefited on account of revision of pension/gratuity etc.

Arrears on account of revised salaries, gratuity, pension and family pension w.e.f 01.01.2016 will be paid as one time lump sum payment.

Background:

Salaries, gratuity, pension, allowances etc. in respect of Judges of Supreme Court are governed by the Supreme Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1958. Salaries etc. of Judges of High Courts are governed by High Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1954. An amendment in the Acts is required whenever there is any proposal for revision of salaries/pension gratuity, allowances etc. in respect of Judges of Supreme Court and High Courts. Therefore, Government proposes to move a Bill in the Parliament in the ensuing Session for amendment in the relevant Acts for giving effect to the revision of salaries and allowances.

Cabinet approves Wage Policy for the 8th Round of Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises

Cabinet approves Wage Policy for the 8th Round of Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the Wage Policy for the 8th Round of Wage Negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs).

Highlights:

        i.            Management of the CPSEs would be free to negotiate wage revision for workmen where the periodicity of wage settlement of five years or ten years has expired generally on 31.12.2016 keeping in view the affordability and financial sustainability of such wage revision for the CPSEs concerned.

ii.            No budgetary support for any wage increase shall be provided by the Government. The entire financial implication would be borne by the respective CPSEs from their internal resources.

iii.            In those CPSEs for which the Government has approved restructuring/  revival plan, the wage revision will be done as per the provisions of the approved restructuring / revival plan only.

iv.            The management of the concerned CPSEs have to ensure that negotiated scales of pay do not exceed the existing scales of pay of executives/officers and non-unionized supervisors of respective CPSEs.

v.            The Management of CPSEs where the five year periodicity is followed have to ensure that negotiated scales of pay for two successive wages negotiations do not exceed the existing scales of pay of executives/officers and non-unionized supervisors of respective CPSEs for whom ten years periodicity is being followed.

vi.            To avoid conflict of pay scales of executives/non-unionised supervisors with that of their workmen, CPSEs may consider adoption of graded DA neutralization and/or graded fitment during the wage negotiations.

vii.            CPSEs must ensure that any increase in wages after negotiations does not result in increase in administered prices of their goods and services.

viii.            The wage revision shall be subject to the condition that there shall be no increase in labour cost per physical unit of output. In exceptional cases where CPSEs are already working at optimum capacity, the administrative Ministry / Department may consult DPE considering industry norms.

ix.            The validity period of wage settlement would be for a minimum period of five years for those who opted for a five year periodicity and for a maximum period of ten years for those who have opted for a ten year periodicity of wage negotiation w.e.f. 01.01.2017.

x.            The CPSEs would implement negotiated wages after confirming with their Administrative Ministry/Department that the wage settlement is in conformity with approved parameters.

Background:

There are about 12.34 lakh employees in 320 CPSEs in the country. Out of these, about 2.99 lakh employees are Board level and below Board level executives and non-unionized Supervisors. The remaining about 9.35 lakh employees belong to the unionized workmen category. Wage revision in respect of unionized workmen is decided by trade unions and managements of CPSEs in terms of guidelines issued by the Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) for wage negotiations.

Implementation of revised pay scales with 15% fitment benefit for BSNL executives

Why Pay Revision with 15% Fitment cannot be denied

CHQ WRITES TO MOSC REQUESTING IMPLEMENTATION OF REVISED PAY SCALES WITH 15% FITMENT BENEFIT FOR BSNL EXECUTIVES

No.AIBSNLOA/CHQ/2017/42

Dated: 15th November 2017

To
Shri Manoj Sinha,
Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications,
Government of India
New Delhi

Subject: Implementation of revised pay scales with 15% fitment benefit for BSNL executives – reg.

Hon’ble Sir,
At the outset, we are thankful for your reported inclination towards implementing revised pay scales with 25% fitment benefit in respect of BSNL executives, even though BSNL does not fully meet the affordability condition stipulated by the 3rd PRC but BSNL is already on revival path and reporting operational profit for last few years. In this regard, we would like to draw your kind attention to the fact that MTNL employees were allowed pay revision as recommended by 2nd PRC w.e.f. 1.1.2007 with the highest 30% fitment benefit although the affordability clause existed then and MTNL was incurring loss for consecutive years.

2. We now learn that BSNL Board has approved a proposal for pay revision and has submitted to the administrative department i.e., the Department of Telecommunication.

3. It is needless to say that BSNL was formed when Hon’ble Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji, was the Prime Minister of India, with a Mission to provide world class, State-of-art technology based telecom services on demand at affordable prices and to provide world class telecom infrastructure to develop country’s economy. At the time of Corporatisation, while approving HRD and financial issues arising out of the corporatisation, the Union Cabinet had assured that “Government will consider and provide a package of measures so that the viability of BSNL is not impaired because of implementation of any socially desirable uneconomic activity, such as rural telephony, undetaken by BSNL at the behest of Government”.

4. Since then, BSNL has been discharging the social obligations of the Government of India by providing services in remote and rural areas inspite of incurring loss because of these services and its presence in the Telecom industry as a fully Government owned PSU, aiming at providing world class services at affordable tariff, has been accepted by every stake holder as a ‘moderating factor’ in controlling the tariff in favour of the customers.

5. When all private networks failed to provide dependable service during natural calamities, whether it was Hudhud cyclone in Andhra Pradesh, Vardha cyclone in Tamilnadu, Floods in Tamilnadu and Uttarakhand, Earthquake in Jammu & Kashmir, BSNL was the only operator which proved its robustness.

6.1 In the prestigious Digital India programme of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India too, BSNL is contributing in two three areas, like National Optic Fibre Network (NOFN), providing Wi-fi hotspots at commercial places, Mobile Wallet service under the Prime Minister Jan Dhan Yojana and delivering m-governance services like digital mandi, kisan seva, Digital high quality educational content among others. BSNL’s contribution towards BharatNet is also worth mentioning.

6.2 BSNL’s role in ensuring GST compliance also cannot be under estimated. BSNL introduced GSP/ASP service on PAN India basis to assist Small and Medium Enterprises as well as large business houses in transitioning to GST by launching an application software which will record invoices on a PC / hand held device or a smart phone along with all GST compliances like preparation of GST Returns, Assistance in generation of GST challans for payment, filing of GST Returns, sending back mismatch invoices etc. BSNL also played an effective role during demonetisation in last November by providing seamless network connectivity among banks and financial institutions.

7. Recently BSNL has signed (MoU) with Fiber Home to jointly start manufacturing telecom equipment and optical fiber cable in BSNL factories, underscoring another initiative by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India – ‘Make in India’.

8. BSNL revenue over the past three years is increasing. The year 2013-14 saw an increase in revenue of 3.2%. The year 2014-15 saw an increase of 2.32%. In the year 2015-16, the increase in income is 14.92% whereas in the same year the expenses decreased marginally by 1.47%. The loss is declining and BSNL is likely to make profit in 2018.

9. While these are sufficient ground justifying revision of pay scales of BSNL employees with 15% fitment benefit, we would like to draw your kind attention towards another major fact which cannot be ignored or overlooked.

10. All the senior officers of Department of Telecommunication who are on ‘deployment’ in BSNL, holding major managerial positions in BSNL have already got their pay fixed in revised scales as per the recommendations of VII Central Pay Commission with 14.2% fitment benefit w.e.f. 1.1.2016. All of them draw their higher pay and perks from BSNL and BSNL’s affordability to pay was not at all an issue for them. If BSNL employees are denied the revised pay with 15% fitment benefit, it will result in an unprecedented discrimination against its own employees vis-à-vis those who are under ‘deployment’. The fall out of such a situation will be unparalleled in the history of indian Public Sector.

11. It will be therefore unfair if BSNL executives are denied their due pay revision in the name of non-affordability, since such a proposition will have a negative impact on their morale which in turn will affect the revival plans of BSNL.

12. We therefore earnestly request you to kindly get the issue examined thoroughly and to ensure that pay revision as per 3rd PRC recommendations are implemented in BSNL with 15% fitment benefit in view of its strategic national importance.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,
(Rakesh Sethi)
General Secretary

Monetary Allowance for Widows of Gallantry Awards Recipients

Monetary Allowance for Widows of Gallantry Awards Recipients

Monetary Allowance for Widows of Gallantry Awards Recipients

Recipients of the gallantry awards are entitled to the monetary allowance as per the letter of 1972 of Ministry of Defence (MoD), superseded by letter in 1995 of the MoD, which have been revised from time to time. As per the existing condition for grant of monetary allowance, the allowance shall be admissible to the recipient of the award and on his death to his widow lawfully married by a valid ceremony. The widow will continue to receive the allowance until her re-marriage or death. The payment of the allowance will, however, be continued to a widow who re-marries the late husband’s brother and lives a communal life with the living heir eligible for family pension.

Representations were received from various quarters to remove the condition of the widow’s remarriage with the late husband’s brother for continuation of the monetary allowance.

This issue was considered by the Government of India and it has now been decided to remove the condition of the widow’s remarriage with the late husband’s brother for continuation of the monetary allowance vide MoD letter dated November 16, 2017.

The revised condition for grant of monetary allowance for recipients of gallantry awards is as under:

The allowance shall be admissible to the recipient of the award and on his death to his widow lawfully married by a valid ceremony. The widow will continue to receive the allowance until her death.

Aadhaar Data is Never Breached or Leaked: UIDAI

Aadhaar Data is Never Breached or Leaked: UIDAI

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) responding to a news report, appeared in certain section of media on “210 Government sites made Aadhaar info public” as if Aadhaar data is leaked or breached, has said that such report is a skewed presentation of the facts and poses as if the Aadhaar data is breached or leaked which is not the true presentation. UIDAI said in a statement here that the Aadhaar data is fully safe and secure and there has been no data leak or breach at UIDAI.

UIDAI said that this said data on these websites was placed in public domain as a measure of proactive disclosure under RTI Act by these government and institutional websites which included beneficiaries’ name, address, bank account, and other details including Aadhaar number and was collected from the third party/users for various welfare schemes. It was this collected info which had been displayed in the public domain under RTI Act. There was no breach or leakage of Aadhaar data from UIDAI database or server as has been aired by the said report.

UIDAI said that acting promptly on this, UIDAI and Ministry of Electronics & IT had directed the concerned Government departments/ministries to immediately remove it from their websites and ensure that such violation do not occur in future. Certain other measures were also taken at various levels to ensure that such incidents of display of Aadhaar numbers do not take place. Following UIDAI’s action such data were removed from these websites immediately. However, the news presented the facts in a skewed manner and misleads readers as if Aadhaar data has been leaked or breached at 210 websites posing Aadhaar security is vulnerable.

UIDAI reiterated that Aadhaar security systems are best of the international standards and Aadhaar data is fully secure. There has been no breach or leakage of Aadhaar data at UIDAI. Also, the Aadhaar numbers which were made public on the said websites do not pose any real threat to the people as biometric information is never shared and is fully secure with highest encryption at UIDAI and mere display of demographic information cannot be misused without biometrics.

UIDAI clarified that Aadhaar number is not a secret number. It is to be shared with authorized agencies when an Aadhaarholder wishes to avail a certain service or benefit of government welfare scheme/s or other services. But that does not mean that the proper use of Aadhaar number poses a security or financial threat. Also, mere availability of Aadhaar number will not be a security threat or will not lead to financial/other fraud, as for a successful authentication fingerprint or iris of individual is also required. Further all authentications happen in presence of personnel of respective service provider which further add to the security of the system.

Furthermore, UIDAI security system has people’s participatory security system like Biometric Lock facility available at UIDAI portal which any Aadhaarholder can use to put his/her own lock on one’s biometric by visiting UIDAI’s official website www.uidai.gov.in.

Denial of pay fixation benefit in the case of Sr. P. Way Supervisors (GP 4200 PB-2) merged with JE/P.Way (GP 4200+PB-2)

Denial of pay fixation benefit in the case of Sr. P. Way Supervisors (GP 4200 PB-2) merged with JE/P.Way (GP 4200+PB-2)

NFIR

No. I/2/Part IV

Dated: 16/10/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of pay fixation benefit in the case of Sr. P. Way Supervisors (GP 4200 PB-2) merged with JE/P.Way (GP 4200+PB-2)

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM agenda item No. 53/2016.
(ii) RailwayBoard’s letter No. PC-III/20l6/FE-II/3 dated 08/09/2016.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. VZlPart trI dated 12/09/2016 & No. 1/2/Part IV dated
05/06/2017.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-III/20l6/FE-II/3 dated 05/07/2017.
(v) NFIR’s letter No. I/2Part IV dated 10/07/2017.
(vi) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-III/20l6/FE-II/3 dated 26/07/2017.

The reply sent by the Railway Board vide letter dated 2610712017 is not acceptable to the Federation as the Railway Board has ignored the fact that the Sr. P. Way Supervisors have been made to shoulder higher responsibilities of Jr. Engineer (P. Way) and in such sifuations, pay fixation under erstwhile Rule FR 22 (C) is needed to be extended to the staff. Federation further desires to state that Enbloc merger and upgradation granted by the Railway Board, should not undermine the right of the employee to claim benefit of pay fixation when he is shifted to the higher post with higher responsibilities.

NFIR wanted the Railway Board to cite the rule under which pay fixation is not admissible in these cases, but sadly the Board have not cited any rule position. Relying on Rule 1313 and denying the benefit of pay fixation is highly improper.

This being a PNM subject, the Federation will discuss the issue in the ensuing PNM meeting at the level of MS & FC.

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