He said that the Central Government will reimburse 50% of the total additional expenditure (from 1.1.2016 to 31.3.2019) to be incurred by these institutes for payment of arrears on account of 7th CPC implementation.

This will directly benefit a total of 29,264 teachers and other academic staff of State Government funded institutes. Besides, about 3.5 lakh teachers and other academic staff of private colleges/ institutions within the purview of AICTE will also benefit from the approval given today, he added.

This will have additional Central government liability of over 1240 crore rupees. The Centre will reimburse 50 per cent of the total additional expenditure from 1st January 2016 to 31st March this year to be incurred by these institutes for payment of arrears.

Approval for regularization of Pay scales of below Board Level Executives in NHPC, NEEPCO, THDC & SJVN

Approval for regularization of Pay scales of below Board Level Executives in NHPC, NEEPCO, THDC & SJVN

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Cabinet

16-January-2019

Cabinet approves regularisation of Pay Scales of below Board Level Executives in NHPC Ltd., North East Electric Power Corporation, THDC India Ltd. and SJVN Ltd. w.e.f. 1.1.97

The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has given its approval for regularization of Pay scales of below Board Level Executives in National Hydroelectric Power Corporation Ltd. (NHPC), North East Electric Power Corporation (NEEPCO), THDC India Ltd. (formerly Tehri Hydro Development Corporation Ltd.) and Satluj Jal Vidhyut Nigam Ltd. (SJVN), w.e.f. 01.01.1997 adopted by them consequent upon the orders of Ministry of Power dated 04.04.2006 and 01.09.2006.

Implementation strategy:

After the approval, the pay scales adopted by Hydro CPSEs consequent upon the order of the Ministry of Power dated 04.04.2006 and 01.09.2006 shall be regularized.

Impact:

About 5,254 Executives of Hydro CPSEs enrolled before 01.01.2007 will be benefitted by this approval. It will motivate and boost the morale the Executives of Hydro CPSEs,

Expenditure:

The total expenditure to the tune of Rs. 323 crore will be incurred for the regularisation of pay scales.

Background:

Anomalies existed in the pay scales of Executives of NHPC, NEEPCO, THDCIL and SJVNL w.e.f. 01.01.1997 due to revision of pay scales of unionized category of workmen/non-executives in line with the NTPC/Oil sector within the organizations. The pay scales of workmen and Supervisors were higher than the pay scale of Executives in the E-1 grade.

The proposal was earlier considered by the Committee of Secretaries (CoS) and the Cabinet on several occasion. The Cabinet in December, 2013 decided as below:

  •     The deviant pay scales fixed w.e.f. 01.01.1997 shall not be regularized.
  •     However, no recovery shall be made for the excess pay drawn from 01.01,1997onwards considering the difficulties in effecting recovery and also considering that such a recovery may de-motivate the staff.
  •     The pay scales shall be fitted w.e.f. 01.01.2007 after correcting the aberration in payscales fixed w.e.f. 01.01.1997.

Aggrieved with the order, various Employee Associations of Hydro PSEs filed Writ Petitions in different High Courts. The High Court of Uttarakhand & Meghalaya quashed the above decision. SLP was filed in Supreme Court on-12.04.2017 against the judgment of High Court of Uttarakhand which was dismissed on 08.05.2017. A Contempt petition has been filed in the High Courts of Meghalaya and Uttarakhand. Ministry of Power is left with no option other than seeking approval of Cabinet for regularizing the pay scales of NHPC, SJVNL, NEEPCO and THDCIL w.e.f. 01.01.1997 adopted by them consequent upon the orders of Ministry of Power dated 04.04.2006 and 01.09.2006.

Re-exercise the option to switching over to 7th CPC – Railway Services Revised Pay Rules 2016

Re-exercise the option to switching over to 7th CPC – Railway Services Revised Pay Rules 2016
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)
RAIL BHAVAN, NEW DELHI-110001

DO No. PC-VII/2018/RSRP/1

New Delhi, dated 10/01/2019

I would like to draw your attention to Board’s letter dated 17.12.2018 (RBE No. 197/2018 – copy enclosed) adopting Ministry of Finance’s (MoF) OM dated 12.12.2018 wherein another opportunity has been afforded to employees to re-exercise the option to switching over to 7th CPC pay structure within three months from the date of issue of the orders.

2. It may be appreciated that the orders have been issued after prolonged pursuance with MoF including from the staff side, in various forums. These orders have been circulated amongst all Railways/Units and uploaded on Board’s website, it is however, important to ensure that all Railway employees who would be benefited by such re-exercise of option are aware of the issue of these orders and are given guidance/assistance in revising their option (wherever beneficial) in time.

India
Dated the 03 January, 2019

Dear Shri Nitin Gadkari

This has reference to your D.O. letter dated 28.10.2018 regarding the National Pension System (NPS).

2. I would like to apprise you that due to fiscal stress on account of old defined benefit pension system, the Government of India made a conscious move to shift from the old pension scheme to a defined contribution pension scheme now renamed as the National Pension System (NPS). NPS was made applicable for all new entrants who joined Central Government service on or after 01.2004, except the Armed Forces. Subsequently, all State Governments excluding West Bengal have also switched to NPS for their employees.

3. NPS is being administered and regulated by Pension Fund Regulatory & Development Authority (PFRDA) in a professional manner. The investments of the accumulated corpus are made in a balanced proportion between equities, government securities and corporate bonds so as to reduce risk or spread risk whilst ensuring optimal returns. Three partial withdrawals, not exceeding 25% of the contribution made by the subscriber are also allowed under NPS for specific

4. The Union Cabinet has recently approved various proposals for streamlining NPS for Central Government employees which inter alia include enhancement of the Government’s contribution from the existing 10% to 14% of the employee’s pay + DA while keeping the employee’s contribution at the existing 10%, providing freedom of choice for selection of Pension Funds and pattern of investment to subscribers, payment of compensation for non-deposit or delayed deposit of NPS contributions during 2004-2012, providing tax deduction to the contribution made under Tier-II of NPS under Section 80 C for deduction up to Rs.1.50 lakh provided that there is a lock-in period of 3 years and increase in the tax exemption limit for lump sum withdrawal on exit from the existing 40% to 60% making the entire withdrawal exempt from income tax.

5. NPS is expected to provide old age income security to subscribers besides providing capital for the social and economic development of the economy.

With regards,
Yours sincerely,
(Arun Jaitley)

Reduction in the residency period for promotion from Grade Pay Rs.1800/- (level-1) to Grade Pay Rs.1900/- (Level-2)

Reduction in the residency period for promotion from Grade Pay Rs.1800/- (level-1) to Grade Pay Rs.1900/- (Level-2)

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

New Delhi, dated January 8, 2019

The General Manager,
All Indian Railways/PUs,

Sub:- Reduction in the residency period for promotion from Grade Pay Rs.1800/- (level-1) to Grade Pay Rs.1900/- (Level-2)

In terms of Para 189 (ii) of IREM Vol. I, employees in Level-1, to be eligible for promotion to Level-2, should have put a minimum of 3 years of continuous service except in the case of promotion of Scheduled Caste and Schedule Tribe.

The matter regarding reduction in the residency period for promotion from Level-1 to Level-2 in respect of all departments, has been under consideration of the Board, consequent to a demand to this effect having been raised by both the Federations i.e. AIRF and NFIR.

Keeping in view, the fact that younger and better qualified and talented employees are now available in Level-1 of all the departments, it has been decided that the residency period for promotion from Level-1 to Level-2 in all departments may be reduced from the existing 3 years where ever prescribed, to 2 years. However, in cases where higher incumbency is prescribed, the same shall continue.

SC/ST employees possessing requisite educational qualification can be considered for promotion to the posts of Skilled Artisan against the 25% qualified staff quota on completion of one year regular service.

Para 189 (ii) of IREM, Vol.I 2009, Reprint Edition is accordingly amended as per ACS No. 260 enclosed herewith.

The issue with concurrence of the Accounts Dte. Railway Board.
