GUIDELINES FOR SETTLEMENT OF CLAIMS FOR COMPENSATION ON ACCIDENTS APPLICABLE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC ENTERPRISES.

Accidental death compensation for central government employees

 Preamble

 Accidents are unfortunate incidents, occurrences of which cannot be obliterated completely, but can only be minimized by adopting most vigilant practices, safety precautions etc. Sometimes accidents do happen when responsibility and liability cannot be affixed on certain individuals or malfunctioning of certain machinery and the Law recognizes the Principle of ‘No faulty Liability’ for such unfortunate incidents. In such cases, the loss of life and loss of dependency cost of the dependents of such victims cannot be written off merely on the pretext that negligence on the part of Department or its agencies cannot be substantiated for want of stricter proofs particularly in a welfare state like ours. Therefore, these guidelines have been framed.

1. Title: These guidelines would be called as Guidelines for Settlement of Claims for Compensation.

2. Effective date: The guidelines would be effective from 11.07.2018.

3.

5. Detailed Accident Report: The report prepared by the police within a period of 30 days from the date of incident as per Schedule 1 of these guidelines.

Explanation- For the purposes of the preparation of the detailed accident report. the word “injury” as referred in Schedule -I refers to “permanent disability” as mentioned in clause 4(a) of the Guidelines.

(ii) Presentation made to the Board on 06.03.2018
(iii) This office letter of even No. dated 23.03.2018

Pursuant to the presentation made by the GM/NWR to full Board on 06.03.2018, recommendations of the Committee have been considered by the Board (ME,MT,MS,FC,CRB) Following key recommendations have been approved by CRB.

1.  At the time of exercising option for fixation of pay the employee shall be provided with two options for calculation of pay so that he is able to pick up the best. As the employee would be exercising the option in a more informed manner, a wider window be provided to them, if they seek to change the option, and Master Circular for the pay fixation should be suitably amended.

2. Zonal Railways can consider providing accommodation (not leased) strictly for family of field level staff at a nodal station generally within 50-100 kms of the way side station where he or she is posted. The Zonal Railway may chose the nodal station on their own where they want to operate this scheme as per feasibility and allot vacant quarters at the nodal stations on the first come fist serve basis. If required some of the way side station quarters can be converted into transit camp or dormitories at the discretions of Zonal Railways. This would alleviate a major concern of out field staff who face problems on this account. GM’s may take necessary action based on the above.

3. It would be better to provide resting facility with toilets at manned level crossings for use by the trackmen and other field staff. This facility can be a temporary structure made up of porta cabins and be provided within the sanctioned budget of the Zonal Railways.

4. All other items which are apparently of general nature may be taken up as a pilot project by GM/NWR for which he is being fully authorized. The result of the pilot project be sent to Board for further action.

Concerned Directorates will issue necessary detailed instructions in respect of items at 1,2 & 3 above in particular and other items listed in the Annexure wherever necessary.

This issues with the concurrence of Associate Finance of Transformation Cell.

Department of Defence
D(Civ I)

Subject: Benchmark for financial upgradation under MACP – clarification regarding

Clarification was sought from DoP&T on the issue of benchmark criteria for grant of financial upgradation under MACP. Now, the requisite clarification has been furnished by DoP&T vide their Comm. No.1313743/CR/18 dated 22.06.2018, contents of which are reproduced below for information and compliance:

“With regard to the query of M/o Defence on the issue of bench mark for grant of MACP, it may be stated that DoP&T has issued OM No. 35034/3/2015-Estt.(D) dated 28.09.2016 enhancing benchmark from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ for all the posts for grant of financial upgradation under the MACPs as per the recommendations of 7th CPC. The above said OM was given effect from 25.07.2016 i.e. the date of acceptance of 7th CPC recommendations. Therefore, in cases where MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of Very Good’ is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be atleast ‘Very Good’.

Instructions prescribing modalities of implementation of 7th CPC recommendations for enhancing the benchmark from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ in respect of promotion, is yet to be issued. The matter is under consideration.”

Subject: Master Circular on Probation /Confirmation in Central Services-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 28020/1/2010 dated 21.07.2014 on the above subject and to say that guidelines/instructions regarding Probation and Confirmation have been issued from time to time.

(Surya Narayan Jha)
Under Secretary to the Government of India

MASTER CIRCULAR ON PROBATION AND CONFIRMATION IN CENTRAL SERVICES PROBATION

1. A person is appointed on probation in order to assess his suitability for absorption in the service to which he has been appointed. Probation should not, therefore, be treated as a mere formality. No formal declaration shall be necessary in respect of appointment on probation. The appointing authority may declare successful completion, extend the period of probation or terminate the services of a temporary employee on probation, on the basis of evaluation of performance.

2. Probation is prescribed when there is direct recruitment, promotion from one Group to another or for officers re-employed before the age of superannuation. The probation shall stand successfully completed on issue of orders in writing. It is, however, not desirable that a Government servant should be kept on probation for long periods.

3. Instead of treating probation as a formality, the existing powers to discharge probationers should be systematically and vigorously used so that the necessity of dispensing with the services of employees at later stages may arise only rarely.

4. Concentration of attention on the probationer’s ability to pass the probationary or the departmental examination, if applicable, is essential part of the qualification for confirmation but not the most important part. There should be a very careful assessment of the outlook, character and aptitude for the kind of work that has to be done in the service before a probationer is confirmed.

5. A probationer should be given an opportunity to work under more than one officer during this period and reports of his work obtained from each one of those officers. The probation reports for the whole period may then be considered is fit to be confirmed in service. For this purpose, separate forms of report on the probationers should be used, which are distinct from the usual Annual Performance Appraisal Report (APAR) forms. The probation reports, unlike APAR, are written to help the supervising officer to concentrate on the special needs of probation and to decide whether the work and conduct of the officer during the period of probation or the extend period of probation are satisfactory enough to warrant his further retention in service or post. The probation reports thus do not serve the purpose for which the APARs are written and vice versa. Therefore, in the case of all probationers or officers on probation, separate probation reports should be written in addition to the usual APARs for the period of probation.

6. Save for exceptional reasons, probation should not be extended for more than a year and in no circumstance an employee should be kept on probation for more than double the normal period.

7. A probationer, who is not making satisfactory progress, should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement. This can be done by giving him a written warning to the effect that his general performance has not been such as to justify his confirmation and that, unless he showed substantial improvement within a specified period, the question of discharging him would have to be considered. Even though this is not required by the rules, discharge from the service being a server, final and irrevocable step, the probationer should be given an opportunity before taking the drastic step of discharge.

8. During the period of probation, or any extension thereof, candidates may be required by Government to undergo such courses of training and instructions and to pass examinations, and tests (including examination In Hindi) as Government may deem fit, as a condition to satisfactory completion of the probation.

MANDATORY INDUCTION TRAINING

9. In all cases of direct recruitment there should be a mandatory induction training of at lest two weeks duration. Successful completion of the training may be made a pre-requisite for completion of probation. The syllabus for the training may be prescribed by the Cadre authorities and the Training Division of DOPT can be consulted, if required. The recruitment rules for all posts, wherever such a provision does not already exist, may be amended to provide for such mandatory training. Till such time as the Recruitment Rules are amended, a clause on the above lines may be included in the offer of appointment.

PERIOD OF PROBATION

The period of probation is prescribed for different posts/services in Central Government on the following lines:

S.No Method of appointment Period of probation
Promotion
1. Promotion from one grade to another but within the same group of posts e.g. from Group ‘C’ to Group ‘C’. No probation.
2. Promotion from one Group to another e.g. Group ‘B’ to Group ‘A’ 2 years or the period
of probation prescribed for the direct recruitment to the post, if any.
DIRECT RECRUITMENT
3. (I) For direct recruitment to posts except clause (ii) below
(ii) For direct recruitment to posts *carrying a Grade Pay of Rs. 7600 or above or to the posts to which the maximum age limit is 35 years or above and where no training is involved,
Note: Training includes on the job or ‘Institution training’
2 years
1 year
4. Officers re-employed before the age of superannuation 2 years
5. Appointment on contract basis, tenure basis, re-employment after superannuation and absorption No probation

(A) DIRECT RECRUITMENT

If a Government servant is appointed to another post by direct recruitment either in the same department or a different department, it may be necessary to consider him for confirmation in the new post in which he has been appointed by direct recruitment irrespective of the fact that the officer was holding the earlier post on a substantive basis. Further confirmation in the new entry grade becomes necessary because the new post may not be in the same line or discipline as the old post in which he has been confirmed and the fact that he was considered suitable for continuance in the old post (which was the basis for his confirmation in that post) would not automatically make him suitable for continuance in the new post the Job requirements of which may be quite different from those of the old post.

(B) PROMOTION

(i) Persons who are inducted into a new service through promotion shall also be placed on probation but there shall be no probation on promotion from one grade to another but within the same group of posts, except when the promotion involves a change in the Group of posts in the same service, e.g. promotion from Group ‘B’ to Group ‘A’ in which case the probation would be for the prescribed period.

(ii) If the recruitment rules do not prescribe any probation, an officer appointed on regular basis (after following the prescribed DPC procedure, etc.) will have all the benefits that a person confirmed in that grade would have.

(C) APPOINTMENT ON CONTRACT BASIS, TENURE BASIS, RE-EMPLOYMENT AFTER SUPERANNUATION AND ABSORPTION

There shall be no probation in the cases for appointment on contract basis, tenure basis, re-employment after superannuation and absorption.

LEAVE TO PROBATIONER, A PERSON ON PROBATION

1. A person appointed to a post on probation shall be entitled to leave under the rules as a temporary or a permanent Government servant according as his appointment is against a temporary or a permanent post. Where such person already holds a lien on a permanent post before such appointment, he shall be entitled to leave as a permanent Government servant.

2. The period of joining time availed of by a probationer on return from leave should be counted towards the prescribed period of probation if but for the leave, he would have continued to officiate in the post to which he was appointed.

3. If, for any reason, it is proposed to terminate the services of a probationer, any leave which may be granted to him shall not extend

(i) Beyond the date on which the probation period as already sanctioned or extended expires, or

(ii) Beyond any earlier date on which his services are terminated by the orders of an authority competent to appoint him.

 

EXTENSION OF PROBATION PERIOD

4. If during the period of probation, a probationer has not undergone the requisite training course or passed the requisite departmental examinations prescribed [proficiency in Hindi, etc.), if any, the period of probation may be extended by such period or periods as may be necessary, subject to the condition that the total period of probation does not exceed double the prescribed period of probation.

5. The Appointing Authority may, if it so thinks fit, extend the period of probation of a Government servant by a specified period but the total period of probation does not exceed double the normal period. In such cases, periodic reviews should be done and extension should not be done for a long period at one time.

6. Where a probationer who has completed the period of probation to the satisfaction of the Central Government is required to be confirmed, he shall be confirmed in the Service/Post at the end of his period of probation, having been completed satisfactorily.

7. Some employees are not able to complete the probation on account of availing leave for long duration during probation period. In such cases if an employee does not complete 75% of the total duration prescribed for probation on account of availing any kind of leave as permissible to a probationer under the Rules, his/her probation period may be extended by the length of the Leave availed, but not exceeding double the prescribed period of probation.

TERMINATION OF PROBATION

8. The decision whether an employee should be confirmed or his probation extended should be taken soon after the expiry of the initial probationary period, that is within six to eight weeks, and communicated to the employee together with the reasons in case of extension. A probationer who is not making satisfactory progress or who shows himself to be inadequate for the service in any way should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement

9. On the expiry of the period of probation, steps should be taken to obtain the assessment reports on the probationer to:-

i. Confirm the probationer/issue orders regarding satisfactory termination of probation, as the case may be, if the probation has been completed to the satisfaction of the competent authority; or

ii. Extend the period of probation or discharge the probationer or terminate the services of the probationer as the case may be, in accordance with the relevant rules and orders, if the probationer has not completed the period of probation satisfactorily.

10. In order to ensure that delays do not occur in confirmation, timely action must be initiated in advance so that the time limit is adherred to.

11. If it appears to the Appointing Authority, at any time, during or at the end of the period of probation that a Government servant has not made sufficient use of his opportunities or is not making satisfactory progress, the Appointing Authority may revert him to the post held substantively by him immediately preceding his appointment, provided he holds a lien thereon or in other cases may discharge or terminate him from service.

12. A Probationer reverted or discharged from service during or at the end of the period of probation shall not be entitled to any compensation.

CONFIRMATION

13. If, during the period of a probation or any extension thereof, as the case may be Government is of the opinion that an officer is not fit for permanent appointment, Government may discharge or revert the officer to the post held by him prior to his appointment in the service, as the case may be.

14. Confirmation will be made only once in the service of an official which will be in the entry grade post/service/cadre provided further confirmation shall be necessary when there is fresh entry subsequently in any other post/service/cadre by way of direct recruitment or otherwise. Confirmation is de linked from the avialbility of permanent vacancy in the grade. In other words, an officer who has successfully completed the probation, as prescribed under relevant rules, may be considered for confirmation. A specific order of confirmation will be issued when the case is cleared from all angels.

15. On satisfactory completion of the period of probation or extension thereof, the Government may confirm a temporary Government servant to his appointment from the date of completion of the period of his probation or extension thereof.

16. The date from which confirmation should be given effect to is the date following the date of satisfactory completion of the prescribed period of probation or the extended period of probation, as the case may be. The decision to confirm the probationer or to extend the period of probation as the case may be should be communicated to the probationer normally within 6 to 8 weeks. Confirmation of the probationer after completion of the period of probation is not automatic but is to be followed by formal orders. As long as no specific orders of confirmation or satisfactory completion of probation are issued to a probationer, such a probationer shall be deemed to have continued on probation.

17. Some employees are not able to complete the probation on account of availing leave for long duration during probation period. In such cases if an employee does not complete 75% of the total duration prescribed for probation on account of availing any kind of leave as permissible to a probationer under the Rules, his/her probation period may be extended by the length of the Leave availed, but not exceeding double the prescribed period of probation.

TERMINATION OF PROBATION

18. The decision whether an employee should be confirmed or his probation extended should be taken soon after the expiry of the initial probationary period, that is within six to eight weeks, and communicated to the employee together with the reasons in case of extension. A probationer who is not making satisfactory progress or who shows himself to be inadequate for the service in any way should be informed of his shortcomings well before the expiry of the original probationary period so that he can make special efforts at self-improvement

19. On the expiry of the period of probation, steps should be taken to obtain the assessment reports on the probationer to:-

i. Confirm the probationer/issue orders regarding satisfactory termination of probation, as the case may be, if the probation has been completed to the satisfaction of the competent authority; or

ii. Extend the period of probation or discharge the probationer or terminate the services of the probationer as the case may be, in accordance with the relevant rules and orders, if the probationer has not completed the period of probation satisfactorily.

20. In order to ensure that delays do not occur in confirmation, timely action must be initiated in advance so that the time limit is adherred to.

21. If it appears to the Appointing Authority, at any time, during or at the end of the period of probation that a Government servant has not made sufficient use of his opportunities or is not making satisfactory progress, the Appointing Authority may revert him to the post held substantively by him immediately preceding his appointment, provided he holds a lien thereon or in other cases may discharge or terminate him from service.

22. A Probationer reverted or discharged from service during or at the end of the period of probation shall not be entitled to any compensation.

CONFIRMATION

23. If, during the period of aprobation or any extension thereof, as the case may be Government is of the opinion that an officer is not fit for permanent appointment, Government may discharge or revert the officer to the post held by him prior to his appointment in the service, as the case may be

24. Confirmation will be made only once in the service of an official which will be in the entry grade post/service/cadre provided further confirmation shall be necessary when there is fresh entry subsequently in any other post/service/cadre by way of direct recruitment or otherwise. Confirmation is de linked from the avialbility of permanent vacancy in the grade. In other words, an officer who has successfully completed the probation, as prescribed under relevant rules, may be considered for confirmation. A specific order of confirmation will be issued when the case is cleared from all angels.

25. On satisfactory completion of the period of probation or extension thereof, the Government may confirm a temporary Government servant to his appointment from the date of completion of the period of his probation or extension thereof.

26. The date from which confirmation should be given effect to is the date following the date of satisfactory completion of the prescribed period of probation or the extended period of probation, as the case may be. The decision to confirm the probationer or to extend the period of probation as the case may be should be communicated to the probationer normally within 6 to 8 weeks. Confirmation of the probationer after completion of the period of probation is not automatic but is to be followed by formal orders. As long as no specific orders of confirmation or satisfactory completion of probation are issued to a probationer, such a probationer shall be deemed to have contined on probation.

28. Where probation on promotion is prescribed, the appointing authority will on completion of the prescribed period of probation assess the work and conduct of the officer himself and in case the conclusion is that the officer is fit to hold the higher grade, he will pass on order declaring that the person concerned has successfully completed the probation. If the appointing authority considers that the work of the officer has not been satisfactory or needs to be watched for some more time he may revert him to the post/service/cadre from which he was promoted, or extend the period of probation, as the case may be.

29. Since there will be no confirmation on promotion before an official is declared to have completed the probation satisfactorily, rigorous screening of his performance should be made and there should be no hesitation to revert a person to the post or grade from which he was promoted if the work of the officer during probation has not been satisfactory.

30. A Government servant appointed by transfer would duly have been confirmed in the earlier post. In such a case further confirmation in the new post would not be necessary and he could be treated as permanent in the new post. Where, however, a Government servant who has not already been confirmed in the old post is appointed by transfer, it would be necessary to confirm him in the new post. In such case, he may be considered for confirmation after watching him for two years. Within that period of two years, the officer would earn two reports in the new grade and the DPC may consider his case for confirmation on the basis of these APARs.

Long Pending issues & ongoing agitation – Income Tax Employees and Officers Associations

Long Pending issues & ongoing agitation – Income Tax Employees and Officers Associations

No. 2/2018-19

Dated, 9th July, 2018

To
The Presidents/General Secretaries
of all the Units/Circles of ITGOA and ITEF

Dear Comrades,
Sub : Long Pending issues & ongoing agitation – regarding

As decided earlier by the Central JCA to embark upon the path of agitation on various issues affecting the membership of the JCA from 17th May 2018, all the affiliated units have participated in the agitation programme and successfully completed the first phase of agitation. It was due to the unified agitation of the members of the JCA, the CBDT had invited the JCA for a discussion on 26th June 2018 on the charter of demands. Though the meeting lasted more than 2(two) hours but no such concrete/positive assurances were received from the Chairman, CBDT regarding resolving of the issues at the earliest. On 27th June 2018 the matter was discussed in the Central JCA meeting held at Civic Centre, Delhi. The meeting threadbarely discussed the outcome of the meeting with the Chairman, CBDT and was of the opinion to continue the ongoing agitation till the minutes of the meeting is made available to the JCA. It was further decided that on receipt of the minutes, further intensification of the agitation would be decided, if necessary.

As per the decision of the meeting, we have persuaded with the Authorities of the CBDT for issuing the minutes immediately but the same was till awaited. Moreover, we have also observed that some of the issues on which positive assurances were given by the Chairman, CBDT, there were no progress. Considering the impasse continuing in the Board on resolving the issues we have no other alternative but to intensify the agitation.

Accordingly, as per the decision of the Central JCA meeting dated 27th June 2018 authorising the Joint Convenors to suggest for the intensification of the agitation, it is now decided to mount Phase-II of our agitation from 23rd July 2018. It was further decided to submit the same to the Chairman, CBDT informing him about the intensification of the agitational programme if the issues did not get resolved by 20th July 2018. It was further decided to hold Press meet on 20th July 2018 by all the Circles/Units at their respective headquarters for wider publicity of the issues relating to genuine grievances of the officers and employees of the Department. A press note in this regard will be forwarded by Central JCA to all Circles/Units in due time. The Central JCA will also undertake mobilisation programme from 16th to 20th July, 2018 and all Unit leadership are requested for extensive campaigning in all offices of respective Regions for implementation of the following programme successfully.

The next phase of agitation will be as under :- JULY 2018 ONWARDS

1) Lunch Hour Demonstration on 23rd July, 2018 in all stations;

2) To boycott Income Tax Day on 24th July 2018 and observing Black Day by wearing Black Ribbons. The members of JCA will not participate in any meeting of the committee that may be constituted for organising this programme immediately after issuance of the Circular of JCA.

3) Black Flag Demonstration on visiting Chairman/Members of CBDT and Officials of Directorates in all income tax offices where they visit. Boycott Outreach programme/Seminar by Officers/Officials (visit to Schools, TDS seminar etc.)

4) Half-a-day (from 2 PM) Walk Out on 28th August 2018.

SEPTEMBER 2018

One day Token Strike on 12TH September, 2018 by the members of the JCA. It was also decided that the Central JCA will meet again to take stock of the situation during the month of August, 2018. All the units of the JCA are requested to ensure implementation of the aforementioned agitational programme in case of non-settlement of the issues within 20th July 2018.

It was also decided that in many regions the local administration had constituted committees for celebration of the Income Tax Day on 24th July 2018. As we have already decided to boycott the Income Tax Day celebration hence we appeal to all our members who were nominated in the committees should not extend any co-operation in this respect. We are hopeful that with the cent percentage participation of all the units and members, the issues above will reach to a logical end.

With revolutionary greetings,

Yours fraternally,

No.2(70)/2018-DPE (WC)-GL-XVI/08 dated 26.11.2008 established an Anomalies Committee consisting ofthe Sectætaries or the Department of Public Enterprises, Department of Expenditure and Department of Personnel & Training. The Anomalies Committee was constituted to address issues/problems arising while implementing the recommendations of 2nd Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for the CPSEs by the Government.

2. The Anomalies Committee gave its recommendations on various issues referred to it by the administrative Ministries/Departments regarding the 2nd PRC related guidelines for its consideration. Consequently, DPE issued the following guidelines vide its OMs dated 26.10.2010, 08.06.2009, 24.09.2010, 0106.2011, 03.06.2011 and 29.06.2012 for implementing the anomalies committee’s decisions.

3. Now for the sake of convenience of all the stakeholders, the said DPE OMs have been collated as under:

(i) Deputation or the Government Officers in CPSEs

a) The Government officers already on deputation with the CPSEs as on 26.11.2008 (the date of issue of 0.M. by the DPE regarding the revision of scale of pay of the executives and non-unionised supervisors of CPSEs) will continue to avail of the option already available and exercised by them till the end of their deputation tenure. The extension, if any given after 26.11.2008 will not qualify for this dispensation.

b) The Board level executives who have been selected through PESB mechanism in IDA scales, and appointed on deputation basis, by ACC/Competent Authority prior to 26.11.2008 will continue to get the same scales with all its associated benefits till the end of their tenure.

c) It may be emphasized that the pay revision of the executives is a total package and the scales, perks and allowances should not be mixed. Accordingly the executives getting the CDA pay scales will continue to get benefits, perks and allowances applicable to CDA scales and executives who are getting IDA pay scales will get perks and allowances applicable to IDA scales.

d) The above decisions are enabling provisions. All the conditions indicated in DPE O.Ms dated 26.11.2008, 09.02.2009 and will be applicable mutatis mutandis to such executives also.

(ii) Self-Lease

(a) Every CPSE must have a Rent Assessment Committee (RAC), which would assess the market tent for categories of executives and non-unionised supervisors, entitled for lease/self-lease accommodation and also the maximum ceiling of reimbursement depending upon the company’s capacity to pay. The RAC may include Members from Finance, HR., Civil Engineering, Law etc. as deemed appropriate.

(b) The RAC will also decide on rent recovery, for which DPE guidelines as applicable to Board level Executives (10% of Basic pay) will be kept in view.

(c) For purposes of CTC, 30% of Basic Pay is required to be considered on housing as per Para 8 of DPE O.M. dated 26.11.2008. This is not meant to a ceiling and tberefore, this should not be treated as the maximum limit for a leased accommodation.

(d) The Board of Directors of CPSEs must ensure that self-leased accommodation does not become an additional source of income to the employee. The precautions as indicated in DPE O.Ms dated 20.05.2009 and will also be kept in view.

(iii) Expenditure on Hospitals, Colleges, Schools. Clubs etc.

The percentage towards expenditure on Hospitals, Colleges- Schools, Clubs etc. should be as close to actual and should be assessed preferably every financial year.

(iv) Encashment of Leave

(a) DPE O.M. dated 05.08.2005 provides for a maximum ceiling of Earned Leave that can be accumulated. CPSCs are not permitted to encash leave beyond 300 days at the time or retirement of an employee of CPSE. The employees are not permitted to accumulate more than 300 days as specified under DFE guidelines.

(b) Casual Leave must not encashed at all and shall lapse at the end of the calendar year.

(c) The component of leave encashment during service i.e. the expenditure on leave encashment, will not be treated Perks and Allowance. It will not however, be treated as pay and accordingly not qualify for any other benefit like HRA. etc.

(d) Leave encashment on Superannuation will not be part of 30% ceiling of Basic Pay and DA for superannuation benefits.

(v) Non-practicing Allowance(NPA)

NPA will not be considered as pay for the purpose of calculating other benefits.

No other allowances/benetit/perks will be kept outside the prescribed 50% ceiling except the four which have been mentioned in the DPE O.M dated 26.11.2008.

(vii) Procedure of pay fixation in some past cases of pay of Board Level Executives

a) Since the percentage based increment during the periodicity of 1997 pay revision was granted with the approval of the Competent Authority to specific CPSEs, would not be proper to consider notional increment and stagnation increment based on fixed elements.

b) Stagnation increment can only be granted after reaching the maximum of scalc of pay. once after two years and a maximum of three only. This mechanism was applicable upto 31.12.2006.

(viii) Bunching of Increment.

The benefit of bunching of increments be extended to board executives of CPSEs also, where applicable, as per para (iii) of DPE 0M. dated 26.11.2008.

4. Any decision as mentioned above, if result in financial burden on the concerned CPSE, it may be requested to keep in mind the provisions relating to affordability, no budgetary support from Government, internal generation of resources, sustainability and capacity to pay by the concerned CPSE.

5. The effective date, if not specifically mentioned above would be dealt per the DPE OMs dated 26.11.2008, 09.02.2009 and 02.04.2009.

6. All administrative Ministries/Departments are requested to bring these consolidated DPE guidelines to the notice of CPSEs under their administrative control for strict compliance.

NO.NJCA/2018
Daled: July 3, 2018

Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashlrapali Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

The NJCA of the organizations, participating in the JCM, met today and adopted the enclosed resolution.

The NJCA was extremely unhappy to nole that the government did not honour its commitment made to the leaders of the organizations when they metlhe Hon’ble Home Minister and Finance Minister in the presence of the then Railway Ministers on 30.06.2016 on the basis of which the Indefinite Strike which was to commence on 11 .07.2016 was deferred.

The reply 10 a question asked by Shri Neeraj Shekhar in the Upper House of the Parliamcnl(Rajya Sabha) given by Hon’ble Minister of State for Finance, Shri P. Radha Krishnan, on 06.03.201 B Minister, which is reproduced below, has further angered the Central Government employees.

“Question of Shri Neeraj Shekhar(1170)

(a) Whether Government Is actively contemplating to increase minimum pay from Rs.18,000/· to Rs.21,000/· and filment factor from 2.57 to 3, in view of resentment among the Central Government employees over historically lowest increase in pay by 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC);
(b) If so, the details thereof and the date from which it would be implemented; and
(c) If not, the reasons for the callous attitude of Government towards Government Employees?”

ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE (SHRI P RADHAKRISHNAN )

“(a),(b)&(c ) – The minimum Pay of Rs .18,000/- p.m. and filment factor of 2.57 are based on the specific recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in the light of the relevant factors taken into account by it. Therefore, no change therein is at present under consideration”.

The NJCA has decided to meet again on 18.08.2018 10 consider the response, if any, from the government to this letter and to the enclosed resolution.

In case of the continuing negative attitude of the government, the NJCA will be left with no other alternative but to revive the decision of Indefinite Strike action, which was deferred on 06.07.2016 on the basis of the assurance given by the Group of Ministers on 30.06.2016.

Sincerely yours,
(Shiv. Gopal Mishra)
Convener

Resolution

National Joint Council of Action
4, State Entry Road New Delhi – 110055

RESOLUTION

The National JCA, which met today(03.07.20 18) at New Delhi as per the notice issued by the Convenor, after deliberations, came to the painful conclusion that the government had been unfortunately indulging in chicanery for the past two years by not honouring their commitment made to the NJCA leaders on 30.06.2016. The NJCA which was formed to pursue the demands and issues of the Central Government Employees especially those emanating from the recommendations made by the 7th CPC in the matter of Wage Revision, New Pension Scheme etc. had deferred the Indefinite Strike action, which was to commence from 11 .07.2016, on the solemn announcement held out by the Group of Ministers, consisting of the Hon’ble Home Minister, Finance Minister and the then Railway Ministers. The Govt had categorically stated that they should set up a High Power Committee to look into the matters concerning the upward revision of Minimum Wage Fitment Formula etc. with a direction to submit its report within four months. The NJCA had made reasoned submissions as to the fallacy of the computation of Minimum Wage made by the 7th CPC.

The meeting further noted that the report of the committee, set-up by the Government under the Chairmanship of the Secretary, Pension, to look into the grievances of the employees and officers over the newly introduced Contributory Pension Scheme in place of the existing Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, has been kepi pending by the Government without taking any action whatsoever, thereby denying the benefit of Defined Benefit Of Pension to the employees recruited on or after 1.1 .2004.

The meeting also noted that, rejection of Option No.1, recommended by the 7th CPC, to the Pensioners on the specious ground that the said recommendation was not feasible to be implemented, was nothing but denial of legitimate parity between the past and present Pensioners.

The meeting noted with deep concern and anguish that the government has virtually closed down the doors of negotiation by not convening the meeting of the National council JCM lor the past 8 years.

The meeting in the above circumstances and given the totally nugatory attitude of the government has decided to revive the Indefinite Strike action, which was deferred on 30.06.2016, immediately and call upon the Central Government employees to prepare themselves for an otherwise inevitable show down. The meeting noted that the government had been dillydallying the issue for the past two years. The meeting desired that the government must immediately address the follollling issues and bring about negotiated settlement thereof without any further delay.

a) Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitm ent Formula
b) Scrapping the New Contributory Pension Scheme.
c) Allow Option No.1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.

The meeting has directed the Convenor to bring to the notice of the Cabinet Secretary and through him the government lhe resentment and discontent of the employees and await their response up to 07.08.2018 and put into operation the deciSion to revive the decision of Indefinite Strike action immediately, thereafter, in case no negotiated settlement is brought about on the various demands included In the Charter of Demands .
