Action required from CRD Division. With regard to other demand i.e. grant of MACP in
promotional hierachy, it is stated that if MACP will be granted in the promotional hierarchy, it will give rise to uneven benefit to employees falling in the same pay scale since several organizations adopted different hierarchical pattern.

Pay Matrix

Follow up action on the meeting of Standing Committee held on 03.05.2017 under the Chairmanship of Secretary (P) on the issues relating to MACPS

S.No. Item Recommendations Comments of Establishment Division
12. Ensuring Five promotions in the Service Career It was informed that when this anomaly was earlier pointed out to the Joint Committee it was promised that this would be
reconsidered and rectified. They suggested that if the MACP scheme was considered more beneficial the employee should be given option to choose
whether be wants ACP Scheme of MACP scheme. The Chairman desired to know if there was any pay commission recommendation on this issue, on which he was informed that there was not.
It was decided that the Establishment Division would
examine the issue further.
It is stated that if MACP will be granted in the
promotional hierarchy it will give rise to uneven benefit to employees
falling in the same pay scale since several organizations adopted different hierarchical pattern. Consequently employees working in organizations having greater number of intermediate grades will suffer because financial
upgradation under MACPS will place them in lower pay scale vis-à-vis
similarly placed employees in another organization that had lesser intermediary grades.
Further, 7th CPC has also recommended that MACP will continue to be administered in the hierarchy of levels in the
Pay Matrix.
19. Grant of 3rd MACP in GP Rs. 4600 to the

The Staff-Side expressed satisfaction with the action taken. It was decided that the item may be closed.
No action.
25 Withdraw the stringent conditions unilaterally
imposed by Government on grant of Modified Career Progression (MACP) in promotions and grant of MACP on promotional hierarchy.
JS (Admn and JCA) informed that ever since the
introduction of disclosure of APARs, the number of employees getting higher
level of gradings may rise. Proposal needed to be evidence based. It was
decided that the Ministry of Railways may provide data on the trend of recorded gradings of APARS.
Though the matter assigned to M/o Railways, however, it is stated that the issue of enhancing the benchmark for promotion is under active consideration of the Government and the modalities decided in the matter of promotion will be made applicable in the case of MACP.

Fixing of Minimum of Revised pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners – RSCWS

Revision of Pension of Pre 2006 Pensioners – Reg: Benefit of Upgraded/Merged Posts by 6th CPC for fixing of Minimum of Revised pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners

No.RSCWS/HO/CHD/ Memo/2018-5

Dated: 21/05/2018

Hon. Minister of Finance, Govt. of India,
North Block, New Delhi-110001

Subject: Revision of Pension of Pre 2006 Pensioners – Reg: Benefit of Upgraded/Merged Posts by 6th CPC for fixing of Minimum of Revised pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners

Reference:- i) Resolution of GOI No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 29-8-08 & OM Dated 1-9-08,
ii) Para 5 of DOP&PW O.M. F.No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 11-2-2009 – (which has been quashed by various Courts but not withdrawn by the DOP&PW)
iii) DOP&PW O.M. F.No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 30-7-2015

Dear Sir,
We seek your benign intervention in the following matter of serious injustice with a section of Pre-2006 Central Government Pensioners:

1. Sixth Pay Commission had Merged and upgraded some posts keeping in view their duties & responsibilities. The recommendations of the Sixth CPC were accepted by the Government vide Resolution of the Government Notified on 29-8-2008 and orders were issued thereon vide DOPT & DOPPW vide OMs dated 1-9-2008.

2. DOP&PW subsequently modified these orders vide O.M. File No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 11-2-2009 and ordered that the benefit of upgrading of posts by Sixth Pay Commission shall not be given for the fixation of Revised Pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners.

3. Above cited orders of DOP&PW (dated 11-2-2009) had been quashed by the various Courts including the Apex Court, which inter-alia directed that “The fixation (of Pension) … will be subject to the provision that the revised pension, in no case, shall be lower than 50% of the sum of the minimum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay thereon corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired.” DOP&PW issued the orders thereon vide OM dated 1-9-2008.

4. DOP&PW vide OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) Dated 30th July, 2015, in compliance with the judicial pronouncements, had decided that the pension/family pension of all pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners may be revised in accordance with this Department’s OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.1.2013 with effect from 1.1.2006.

5. Para 5 of DOPPW OM dated 11-2-2009 had specifically been quashed by various Courts – including the High Court of New Delhi in WP(C) 3035/2016 dated 3-8-2016 in Ram Phal-vs-Union of India & Ors and CAT Bangalore in CP 237/2015 in OA 231/2013 (Parthasarthy-Vs-Union of India).

6. High Court of Kerala at Ernakulam had held as under in OP (CAT).No. 169 of 2015 (Z) in its judgment dated 18th January, 2016 UNION OF INDIA vs N.R.PURUSHOTHAMAN PILLAI:
“The resultant position that emerges from the pronouncement of the Central Administrative Tribunal as well as the different High Courts and the Apex Court is that, computation of pension in the matter of implementation of the 6th Pay Commission Report has to be at 50% of the pay scale with respect to the scale of pay applicable to the post in question and not to the corresponding scale of pay to the one at which the incumbent has retired.”

7. Regrettably the benefit of upgrading of posts was still not given to the Pre-2006 Pensioners in spite of the above cited judgments of various Courts. The benefit of the Court judgments on this had been restricted only to the Petitioners and not to other similarly placed Pre-2006 Pensioners.

8. This is totally discriminatory and violates Article 14 of the Constitution as well as under the settled law that the decisions taken in one specific case either by the Judiciary or the Govt. should be applied to all other similar cases without forcing the other employees or pensioners to approach the court of law for an identical remedy or relief.

9. Delhi High Court in W.P.(C) 8012/2013 had held that “policy decision of the Government in the OM dated September 01, 2008 to fix pension for all categories of pensioners did not classify post of pre January 01, 2006 retirees and all were entitled to pension as per a common formula”

10. It is, therefore, requested that Pre-2006 Pensioners be given the benefit of upgraded Pay Band and Grade Pay of the post from which they retired so that minimum pension be not lower than 50% of the pay in the revised pay band plus the grade pay corresponding to the post from which the pensioner retired – as per DOPPW OM dated 30-7-2015.

Yours faithfully,
(Harchandan Singh)

The undersigned is directed to refer to DoPT’s DO No. 11/1/2015-JCA dated 26.03.2018 on the subject cited above and to say that the comments of this Department in respect of Item No 15,16,17 & 21 are enclosed (Annex-A).

2. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

Encl: Annex-A

(Charanjit Taneja)
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India

Annex-A

Item no. 15,16,17&21:- Parity/ Modified Parity in pension/revised pension/family pension of all pre-1996 retirees with those who retired on or after 01.01.2006 .

In accordance with an Office Memorandum dated 01.09.2008, for revision of the pension of the pre-2006 pensioners, the pension/family pension of existing pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners was to be consolidated with effect from 01.01.2006 by adding together (i) The existing pension/family pension (ii) Dearness Pension, where applicable (iii) Dearness relief upto AICPI (IW) average index 536 (Base year 19823100) i.e. @ 24% of Basic Pension/Basic family pension plus dearness pension as admissible and (iv) fitment weightage @ 40% of the existing pension/family pension. Para 4.2 of the Office Memorandum dated 01.09.2008 provided that the fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension, in no case, shall be lower than fifty per cent of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band plus the Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised Pay Scale from which the pensioner had retired and in the case of HAG+ and above scales, this will be fifty per cent of the minimum of the revised Pay Scale.

2. Clarification on various provisions of the OM dated 1.9.2008 were issued vide Department of Pension and PW OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) pt. 1 dated 3.10.2008. In regard to Para 4.2 of the OM dated 1.9.2008 the following clarification was issued:-

“The pension calculated at 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band plus grade pay would be calculated at the minimum of the pay in the pay band (irrespective of the pre-revised scale of pay) plus the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale. For example, if a pensioner had retired in the pro-revised scale of pay of Rs.18400-22400, the corresponding pay band being Rs. 37400-67000 and the corresponding grade pay being Rs. 10,000/- p.m., his minimum guaranteed pension would be 50% of Rs. 37,4001 Rs. 10,000 (i.e. Rs. 23,700).

The pension will be reduced pro-rata, where the pensioner had less than the required service for full pension as per rule 49 of the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972 as applicable on 01.01.2006 and in no case it will be less than Rs. 3500/- p.m.

In case the pension consolidated as per para 4.1 of OM.No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 1.9.2008 is higher than the pension calculated in the manner indicated above, the same (higher consolidated pension) will be treated as Basic Pension.”

3. In the Agenda item, the JCM (Staff side) claimed that the revised pension/family pension of all pic-2006 pensioners/family pensioners would not be less than 50% of the minimum of the pay band l grade pay, corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which pensioner had retired, as arrived at with reference to the fitment tables annexed to Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No. l/l/2008-IC dated 30.8.2008.

4. In the last meeting of the Anomaly Committee the staff side argued that a reading of the recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission on the matter indicated that the intent of the Pay Commission was to grant modified parity to pro-01.01.2006 pensioners by allowing the same fitment benefit as is being recommended to the existing Government employees subject to the provision that revised pension shall not be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the pay band prescribed for the grade pay and the sum of the grade pay with reference to the minimum of the pay band plus the grade pay which is not consistent with the recommendation of the Sixth CPC. Officer of Department of Expenditure stated that this was not the intent of me recommendation of the Pay Commission. After some discussion, the Staff Side request the Official Side to examine the matter once again.

5. After the above meeting of the Anomaly Committee, the following decisions have been taken by the Government:

(i) Orders were issued vide this Department’s OM of even number dated 28.1.2013 for stepping up of pension of pre-2006 pensioners w.e.f. 24.9.2012 to 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band and grade pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner retired. Para 5 of this OM provides that in case the consolidated pension/family pension calculated as per para 4.1 of OM. No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 192008 is higher than the pension/family pension calculated in the manner indicated in the OM. dated 28.1.2013, the same (higher consolidated pension/family pension) will continue to be treated as basic pension/family pension.

(ii) Subsequently, in compliance of an order dated 1.11.2oll of the Hon’ble CAT, Principal Bench in OA No. 655/2010, order dated 29.4.2013 of Hon’ble, High Court of Delhi in WP (C) No. 1535/2012 and order dated 17.3.2015 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in SLP (C) No. 36148/2013, order were issued vide this Department’s 4 O.M. No.38/37/O8-P&PW(A) dated 30.7.2015 that the pension/family pension of all pre ~ 2006 pensioners/family pensioners may be revised in accordance with this Department’s O.M. No.38/3 7/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.1.2013 with effect from 1.1.2006 instead of24.9.2012.

(iii) Vide OM. No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 6.4.2016, it was decided that the revised consolidated pension of pre-2006 pensioners shall not be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band and the grade pay (wherever applicable) corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale as per fitment table without pro-rata reduction of pension even if they had qualifying service of less than 33 years at the time of retirement.

6. With the issue of the aforesaid orders, the demand of the staff side in regard to modified parity to pre-2006 pensioners has been accepted and implemented.

Subject: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP/MACP Scheme and Non Functional Grade to Pharmacists.

The issue of grant of ACP/MACP to Pharmacists on acceptance of Fast Track Committee Report, the Government of India, vide Min of Fin, Deptt of Expenditure F. No. 1/1/2008-IC dated 18.11.2009 was referred to our HQrs office for clarifications on the following points.

(i) Whether the pharmacists (GP Rs2800/-) who have already been granted higher scale/GP (GP 4200/-) by virtue of ACP or otherwise prior to effective date of OM dated 18.11.2009 are again to be allowed Non Functional Upgradation (GP 4200/-) under the above provisions.

(ii) Further, doubt has been raised regarding mode of fixation of pay while on granting ACP after NFU, as in the case of Pharmacists, the scale/GP granted on account of NFU and the standard/common pay scales applicable for ACP in terms of Annexure-II are same and identical i.e. GP of Rs.4200/- in the PB-2.

In this regard a copy of CGDA No-AT/Il/2458-XXIII, dated 01/03/2018 received in this office clarifying the above points is forwarded herewith for information and necessary guidelines.

Subject: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP/ MACP Scheme and Non Functional Grade to Pharmacists.

Reference: Your office letter No Pay/Tech-I/01 (6th CPC) Pharmacist dated 12-01-2017, 20-02-2017 and 14-09-2017.

The issue of grant of ACP/MACP to Pharmacists referred to HQrs Office vide your office letter dated 12-01-2017 has been examined in consultation with other PCsDA/CSDA. As regard to the first point of doubt referred by your office, it is viewed that grant of NFU (in the grade pay of Rs 4200/-) to the pharmacists who have already been granted GP of Rs 4200/- by virtue of ACP or otherwise as on 01-
01-2006 does not appear to be in tune with or supported by the orders regulating the grant of NFU.

2. Further, regarding second doubt raised by your office it is stated that the clarification given at S] No 2 of DOPT OM No 35()34/1/97-Estt (D) (Vol-IV) dated 10-02-2000 clearly stipulates that in cases where pay scale given as selection grade/in-situ promotion is not a part of hierarchy, the pay scale granted by virtue of selection grade/in-situ promotion may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP. In View of the provisions ibid it is viewed that the pay scale/ grade pay of Rs 4200/- granted by virtue of NFU in the cases of pharmacists which is not a part of hierarchy may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP.

This has the approval of Addl CGDA (PP&W).

Dear Sir,

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: (i) Deptt. of Expenditure, MoF’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2- 1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015

Through this missive, your kind attention is drawn towards Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010.

Now, as per instruction of the Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and who opted 6th CPC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

However, it has to come to our knowledge that, the benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as per the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant (RP) Rules, 2008 with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010(as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP) Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this issue of revision of option to switch over to the 6th CPC in view of unforeseen events etc. to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of finance). Despite elapse of more than 12 months, no response has been received in this regard from Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance) to resolve the genuine demands of these employees.

In this connection, it is stated that as these are the unforeseen developments or change of rule, the opportunity to revise option for fixation under the Rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be given to these employees in these conditions, as it is more beneficial for them as now. Had they were aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation would be extended in future (as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015), they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates of promotion/financial upgradation as per the option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

In view of the above, you are requested to issue necessary clarifications in this regard to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, the aggrieved staff should get the opportunity to re-exercise their option under rule-6 of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 and get the benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

With Regards!

2. Now, with the approval of MoF, it has been decided that Level-1 of the Pay Matrix introduced on implementation of the 7th CPC report be the replacement for the pre-revised – l S scale. The pay of those governed by the -1S scale may be revised by using the Fitment Factor of 2.57 for placement in Level-1 in conformity with Rule-7 of the RS(RP) Rules, 2016. All pre-revised pay stages lower than pre-revised pay of ? 7,000 in the pre-revised -1 S scale shall not be considered for determining the benefit of bunching, on the same lines as has been clarified by DoE, Ministry of Finance’s O.M. dated 03.08.2017, circulated vide Board’s letter dated 27.09.2017 (RBE No. 139/2017) on application of the said benefit.

Sub: Revision of the 6th CPC Pay Scale of Rs. 4440-7440 (-1S)

Dear Sir,

Alter the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations the minimum entry qualification for Central Government job is kept as Matriculation or ITI. However candidates who are not Matric/ITI qualified are recruited in the -1S pay scale of Rs. 4440-7440 and kept in the same pay scale till they acquire the Matriculation qualification. However the pay scale is not yet revised even after the implementation of the 7th CPC pay scales w.e.f. 1/1/2016.  This is causing undue financial hardship to the concerned employees.  It is therefore requested that you may kindly consider the above issue and necessary instructions may please be issued revising the above pay scale w.e.f. 1/1/2016 on the basis of 7th CPC

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

According to the DoP&T OM dated 21st October 2009, 05th November 2012 & 31st March 2017, the method of pay fixation in respect of Government employee transferred to a lower post on his/her request shall be as under:-

“The pay of the Government employee holding a post on regular basis will be fixed in the revised pay structure at the stage equal to the pay drawn by him/her in the higher level of post held regularly. If no such stage is available, the pay will be fixed at the stage next below in the lower level with respect to the pay drawn by him/her in the higher level of posts held regularly and the difference in the pay may be granted as personal pay to be absorbed in future increments.”

From the OMs issued by the DoP&T pursuant to the implementation of the 6th CPC pay structure as well 7th CPC pay matrices w.e.f. 01/01/2006 and 01/01/2016 respectively, the pay fixation on joining lower post shall be with reference to pay drawn in higher level of post.

On Zonal Railways etc., pay fixation to those who joined in lower Grade Pay/Pay Matrix at their request is not being allowed inspite of DoP&T’s OMs cited above, (i.e. ensuring pay protection),It is also noticed that Railway Board have not issued corresponding instructions on the basis of DoP&T OM dated 31st March 2017 till now.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to kindly consider the above facts and issue clarification on the lines of the OMs of DoP&T for granting pay fixation in those cases of employees who joined on transfer to a lower post at their request.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

Resolution of Anomalies in the 6th CPC Report

Resolution of Anomalies in the 6th CPC Report

RESOLUTION-ANOMALIES-6TH-CPC-7TH-CPC

Recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission (CPC) and several improvements made thereon by the Government have been largely well received by the armed forces personnel including ex-servicemen. Some issues regarding service conditions, pay, pension and allowances, including demand for non-functional upgradation, were subsequently received, which were examined by the Government on case to case basis.

Some of the pay concerns of armed forces personnel were also examined by a committee constituted under the chairmanship of Shri Pranab Mukherjee, the then Minister of External Affairs. The committee’s recommendation on placement of Lt Cols / equiv in Pay Band IV was accepted and implemented by the Government.

Thereafter, a committee was constituted under the chairmanship of the Cabinet Secretary in 2012, to examine certain pay and pension issues of armed forces personnel. All the recommendations of Cabinet Secretary Committee related to ex-servicemen were implemented. The Committee’s recommendations on pay related issues were referred to the 7th CPC.

The improvement of service conditions, pay, allowances and retirement benefits of armed forces personnel is a continuous process, which is examined in consultation with various stakeholders, and on case to case basis.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Rajeev Chandra Sekhar in Rajya Sabha today.
