Employees Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995, a minimum pension of Rs. 1,000/- per month has been prescribed with effect from 01.09.2014 for the pensioners under Employees Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995.

Ministry of Labour & Employment
Minimum Pension

17 DEC 2018

As regards Employees Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995, a minimum pension of Rs. 1,000/- per month has been prescribed with effect from 01.09.2014 for the pensioners under Employees Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995.

In the case of Atal Pension Yojana (APY), depending upon the pension plan selected, each subscriber under APY shall receive a guaranteed minimum pension of Rs. 1000 per month or Rs. 2000 per month or Rs. 3000 per month or Rs. 4000 per month or Rs. 5000 per month, after the age of 60 years until his/her death. If the actual returns during the accumulation phase are higher than the assumed returns for minimum guaranteed pension, such excess will be passed on to the subscriber. As such, the minimum pension depending upon the pension plan selected by the subscriber is fixed under the APY. Under National Pension System (NPS), there is no ceiling fixed for minimum pension.

Further, a High-Empowered Monitoring Committee has been constituted for complete evaluation and review of the EPS, 1995.

There is no provision for Dearness Allowance in EPS, 1995, as it is a self-funded scheme with fixed contributions. Further, Dearness Allowance is not applicable under NPS and APY as the pension under both depends upon the accumulated corpus at the time of exit which is market linked.

This information was given by Shri Santosh Kumar Gangwar Union Minister of State (I/C) for Labour and Employment in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.

Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Cess

Ministry of Labour & Employment
Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Cess

17 DEC 2018

Pursuant to the directions of Hon’ble Supreme Court contained in its judgement dated 19.03.2018 in W.P. (C) No. 318/2006, the Central Government has formulated a model welfare scheme for BOC workers which, inter alia, envisages following maternity benefit, out of the BOCW welfare cess fund, for those BOC workers who are not covered under Ayushman Bharat:-

(i) Paid maternity leave to registered construction workers ranging from 90 days to 26 weeks for up to two deliveries.

(ii) Rs.6000/-per delivery for up to two deliveries to the wife of the registered construction workers, which will be in addition to any other benefit received from any Government Scheme in this regard.

The Building and Other Construction Workers (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1996 provides safety, health and welfare measures for the building and other construction workers. For the purposes of the above said Act, a cess is levied and collected at the rate of 1% of the cost of construction by the State Governments under the Building and Other Construction Workers’ Welfare Cess Act, 1996. The States, through their respective State Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Boards, constituted under BOCW Act, utilize the cess fund in terms of Section 22 of BOCW Act, 1996. The States and Union Territories have collected around Rs. 45473.1 Crore and have spent an amount Rs. 17591.592 Crore upto 30.9.18.

The Welfare Schemes funded from BOCW welfare cess fund are exclusively for the building and other construction workers. Diversion of the cess fund for welfare of other category of workers is not permissible under the BOCW (RECS) Act, 1996.

Utilization of Cess Fund under Section 22 of the Building and Other Construction Workers (RECS) Act, 1996 Act and the registration of building and other construction workers as beneficiary under section 12 of the said Act is done by the State Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Boards.

Besides the above, the Government is implementing various Acts and Schemes to provide social security and welfare benefits to workers, both in the organised and unorganised sector. The social security to the workers in the organized sector is provided mainly through five Central Acts, namely, the Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948, the Employees’ Provident Funds & Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952, the Employee’s Compensation Act, 1923, the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 and the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972.

In order to provide social security benefits to the workers in the unorganised sector, the Central Government is implementing Unorganised Workers’ Social Security Act, 2008, to provide welfare schemes in matters relating to life and disability cover, health and maternity benefits, old age protection to the unorganised workers. Various Ministries/Departments of the Central Government are implementing such social security schemes like Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme (Ministry of Rural Development); National Family Benefit Scheme (Ministry of Rural Development); health and maternity schemes (Ministry of Health and Family Welfare). The Central Government has also converged the social security scheme of Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana (AABY) with Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY) to provide life and disability coverage to the unorganised workers depending upon their eligibility. These converged schemes give coverage of Rs.2 lakhs on death at premium of Rs.330/- per annum and coverage of Rs.2 lakhs on accidental death at premium of Rs.12 per annum, besides disability benefits as per the scheme. The annual premium is shared on 50:50 basis by the Central Government and the State Governments. These schemes are implemented and monitored by Life Insurance Corporation of India and the concerned State Governments.

This information was given by Shri Santosh Kumar Gangwar Union Minister of State (I/C) for Labour and Employment in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.

Pension benefit to teachers of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas

NPS Applicable to NVS Employees w.e.f. 1.4.2009

The New Pension Scheme introduced for the Central Government employees w.e.f. 1.1.2004, was made applicable to the regular employees of NVS w.e.f. 1.4.2009.

Pension benefit to teachers of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas

The option to switchover to the GPF Scheme was available only to the employees of those institutions which were in existence as on 1.1.1986. Since the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) was registered as a society only on 28.2.1986, the option of switchover to GPF scheme was not applicable to the employees of NVS.

The employees of NVS had been given the benefits of Contributory Provident Fund (CPF) scheme since its inception. The New Pension Scheme (NPS), which was introduced for the Central Government employees w.e.f. 1.1.2004, was made applicable to the regular employees of NVS w.e.f. 1.4.2009. Those employees who had joined NVS on regular basis before 1.4.2009 were given an option to continue with the existing CPF scheme or to join the NPS.

The option was to be exercised by 3.11.2009. Those employees of NVS who have opted for and are covered under the NPS, are entitled to the benefits envisaged under this scheme. Thus, the teachers of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas are already entitled to benefits of either the CPF scheme or the NPS scheme having regard to the option exercised by them.

This was stated by Shri Satya Pal Singh, Minister of State for Human Resource Development in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 13.12.2018.

Bank Employees Wage Revision – UFBU Meeting 12.12.2018

Bank Employees Wage Revision
UFBU Meeting 12.12.2018

In today’s UFBU meeting the discussion revolved around two issues:

A) The issue of extending fraternal support by UFBU constituents to AIBOC on 21st December’18.

B) The view of all constituents on the decision of AIBOC of not taking part in further talks, and also to seek opinion of each affiliate whether they would be taking part in talks should IBA convene any meeting.

On the first issue, there was no unanimity amongst constituents, hence, UFBU Convenor left the decision to individual affiliates.

We are happy to share that some affiliates openly expressed their support and also agreed to join the Dharna at Delhi scheduled on 14th December’18

AIBOC also categorically stated that in future we will also take a call on extending fraternal support, should any affiliate call for a strike or announce any agitational program.

On the second issue, all other affiliates expressed that they would be joining future talks.

UFBU Convenor, requested AIBOC to reconsider the decision of not taking part in further talks.

During the deliberation, AIBOC clarified it’s position that we are firm and resolute in our stand of going ahead with the strike and not taking part in further talks unless the mandate issue was settled.

We also expressed that after assessing the impact of our strike, we will take stock, discuss with all our affiliates and chalk out our future course of action.

General Secretary.
AIBOC

Dated: 10/12/2018

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC) reg.

(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I.11/Part I dated 30/07/2018.

Federation vide its letter dated 30/07/2018 brought to the notice of Railway Board the case of non-payment of two additional increments to the Nursing Personnel at revised rates of pay as per 7th CPC, unfortunately no instructions have been issued so far.

Federation desires to clarify that with the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations the rates of two additional non-absorbable increments at the revised rates of pay of 6th CPC were last issued by the Railway Board vide letter No. PC-VI/2010/I/7/5/1 dated 14/03/2018 (RBE No. 33/2012), however similar instructions have not been issued by the Board, causing disappointment among the staff who are entitled for two additional increments on the 7th CPC Pay.

While enclosing copy of Federation’s letter dated 30/07/2018, NFIR again urges upon the Railway Board to issue instructions to all Zonal Railways to grant two additional increments (at the rate of 3% each on 7th CPC Pay) w.e.f. 01/01/2016 to the Nursing Personnel. Action taken in the matter may kindly be conveyed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

Deployment of ECRC staff in Ticket checking activities – Railways

Government of India
Ministry of Railways
(Railway Board)

No.2018/TG-V/1/5

New Delhi, dated. 12.12.2018

The General Managers,
All Zonal Railways.

Commercial Circular No: 72of 2018

Sub: Deployment of ECRC staff in Ticket checking activities.

It has been observed that due to vacancies in ticket checking cadre, zonal Railways are facing problems in ensuring manning of reserved coaches, leaving a scope for leakage of revenue of Indian Railway and also causing inconvenience to the passengers.

1.1 Further, it has been observed that more than 65% of reserved tickets are now being booked through internet which has resulted in reduction in requirement of ECRC staff.

2. In order to optimize the human resource available in the Commercial Department, Board (CRB,FC,MS and MT) have decided that, as a temporary measure, wherever possible the ECRC staff may be engaged in stationary ticket checking activities and the stationary ticket checking staff may be entrusted with on board ticket checking activities. Necessary training must be imparted to the ECRC staff before being utilized for ticket checking duties.

AIRF: Career progression of the staff working in GP Rs.1800

AIRF: Career progression of the staff working in GP Rs.1800

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: December 8, 2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Career progression of the staff working in GP Rs.1800

As I have discussed this issue personally with your goodself and tried to get resolved the issue regarding career progression of the staff working in GP Rs.1800; because in many departments; the employees working in GP Rs.1800 are stagnating in GP Rs.1800 for 15 years and even 20 years, and these are the staff those who are working in GP Rs.1800 are virtually doing the job of skilled nature, in almost all the departments, including Technical and Non-Technical.

It would be in all fairness if 50% posts of GP Rs.1800 should be upgraded to GP Rs.1900, which will resolve the problems of the Railway Industry as well as the employees.

In this connection, it is worth-mentioning that, we have also requested your goodself for reduction in the Direct Recruitment Quota, and the employees having qualification of RRB should be given benefit for their selection against those vacancies through “LDCE open to all” policy, to facilitate the highly educated staff available over the Indian Railways.

We sincerely hope that, you will kindly consider it favourably and do the needful.

Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
