As per DP&PW OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04/08/2016, pension cases of Pre-2016 pensioners have already been revised by the banks by applying the multiplication factor of 2.57.

Office Memorandum

Subject: 7th CPC pension Revision : regarding

A reference is invited to CPAO OM No. CPAO/IT & Tech./Revision (7th CPC)/19.Vol-III/2016-17/37 dt. 25/05/2017 regarding revision of pension under 7th CPC forwarding the prescribed format of SSA for pre-2016 cases to be issued by PAOs.

As per format various financial & non-financial details of the pensioners were required to be provided by the PAOs while revising the pension under 7th CPC such as basic pension, revised pension, last pay drawn, PAN No., Aadhaar No. etc. After issue of this OM various offices raised some doubts regarding essentiality of providing Aadhaar number and PAN number.

In view of the doubts raised, it is clarified that no field in the format is mandatory except those which are required to process the pension case.

Therefore, while it is advisable to provide  of the Pensioners wherever available for better quality of database, no case for 7th CPC pension revisions should be delayed for the want of Aadhaar number and PAN number of the pensioners.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

7th CPC related issues – Review of agitational programmes organised by Confederation and the present position of the various demands raised in the charter of demands

7th CPC related issues – Review of agitational programmes organised by Confederation and the present position of the various demands raised in the charter of demands – Future course of action.

The National Secretariat reviewed various agitational programmes independently organised by Confederation viz: Massive Parliament March on 15-12-2016, one day nationwide strike on 16-03-2017, Mass Dharna organised in front of Finance Minister’s Office on 23-05-2017, Human Chain of Central Govt. employees on 22-06-2017 and Burning of the HRA orders on 25-07-2017. It is reported by all National Secretariat members that the employees and pensioners had participated in large number in all the above programmes.

The Government has already implemented Revised Pay Scales, Revised Allowances and Revised Pension based on 5th CPC recommended parity formula for pre-2016 pensioners. The assurances given by Group of Ministers on 30-06-2016 regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula still remains unimplemented. Govt. has not considered the demand to restore HRA rate to 30%, 20% and 10% and implement it from 01-01-2016. All revised allowances are implemented prospectively from 01-07-2017 thereby denying arrears from 01-01-2016. The Option-I parity for pensioners recommended by 7th CPC is rejected by the Government, instead 5th CPC recommended parity is extended to all pre-2016 pensioners. The “very good” bench mark condition imposed for grant of MACP is not yet modified. Even though NPS Committee constituted by Govt. for streamlining NPS has submitted its report to Government, its recommendations are still not made public. The demand for withdrawal of Contributory Pension Scheme and guaranteeing minimum pension (50% of the last pay drawn) is still pending. All other demands raised in the confederation and NJCA charter of demands are also remaining unsettled.

Unfortunately, inspite of the totally negative attitude and non-honouring of the assurance given to NJCA by the BJP-led NDA Government, the dominant leadership of NJCA is not in favour of reviving the deferred indefinite strike and no serious agitational programmes was organised after 6th July 2016 (i.e. after deferring the strike) under the united banner of NJCA, which compelled the Confederation to demarcate and organise independent struggle programmes as mentioned above including one day nation-wide strike.

The National Secretariat meeting took note of the above situation and decided to request once again the Railway Federations which are leading the NJCA as Chairman (NFIR) and Convenor (AIRF) to chalk out serious agitational programmes including strike under the banner of NJCA. Confederation National Secretariat strongly felt that to make the Govt. to honour its assurance on Minimum Pay and Fitment formula, to grant enhanced rate of HRA from 01-01-2016, to get Option-I parity implemented for pre-2016 pensioners, to modify the retrograde bench mark condition for MACP, to scrap NPS and ensure guaranteed minimum pension, to settle the justified demands of Gramin Dak Sevaks and Casual, Contract Workers, a united indefinite strike under the banner of NJCA (Railway, Defence & Confederation) is the need of the hour.

In the absence of a united struggle under the banner of NJCA, the Confederation National Secretariat decided to organise the following agitational programmes in a phased manner.

1. Mass dharna at all District headquarters demanding settlement of modified charter of demands of Confederation on 19th September 2017 (Tuesday).

2. Mass dharna at all state capitals on 17th October, 2017 (Tuesday).

3. Three days massive relay dharna in front of Parliament from 9th November to 11th November 2017 along with Central Trade Unions.

4. Indefinite strike in 2018 jointly along with Central Trade Unions. (Date will be finalised by the Central Trade Unions and independent Federations including Confederation).

All affiliated organisations and COCs are requested to make the above programmes a grand success. As the NDA Government is aggressively implementing the neo-liberal policies in all sectors, it is our responsibility to join hands with the entire trade unions and unitedly resist the onslaught. If the Govt. is not ready to change its destructive policies, the workers have no option but to embark upon a prolonged struggle jointly with the suffering common people of our country, to change the Government. It is in this background Confederation National Secretariat decided to join with the 3 days mass dharna at New Delhi and indefinite strike. In the meantime, if NJCA meets and take decisions for any agitational programmes, confederation shall implement the programmes of NJCA also. Modified charter of demands of the Confederation is also enclosed herewith.

3.2017 June 10th National Convention of Central and State Govt. Employees (Confederation and All India State Government Employees Federation) on “NPS & Outsourcing” – Review and implementation of the decisions taken by the National Convention.

The National Secretariat decided to implement the following decisions of the 2017 June 10th National Convention on “NPS & Out sourcing” jointly organised by Confederation and AISGEF. Confederation C-O-Cs should contact the AISGEF leaders of their respective states and chalk out detailed plan for implementing the decisions. Large scale participation of employees on behalf of Confederation should be ensured in all the programmes:

All the Central Trade Unions and Independent Federations (other than BMS) had Organised a massive National convention of workers on 8th August 2017 at Talkatora Stadium New Delhi against the anti-Labour and anti-people polices of NDA Govt.

The following Central Trade Unions have participated in the Convention in addition to independent federations of various sectors including Confederation.

The National Secretariat decided that charter of demands adopted by the National convention of workers will be part-I charter of demands and confederation charter of demands will be part-II charter of demands for campaign and mobilisation of Central Government employees and also for the proposed indefinite strike.

6.All India Women’s Trade Union Workshop-2017

The National Secretariat decided to organise “All India Women’s Trade Union Workshop-2017″ in the month of November/December 2017. C-O-C Maharashtra (Mumbai) is requested to discuss and inform their readiness to hold the workshop at Mumbai as there is larger concentration of women employees in Mumbai. In order to reduce the financial burden of the Reception Committee it is decided that delegate fee will be Rs.1000/- (Rs. One thousand only) per head. As the train reservation commences four months before, the decision of the C-O-C Mumbai should be communicated to the CHQ before 21-08-2017. On confirming the place only quota to each organisation and C-O-Cs etc. are to be fixed. The C-O-C Mumbai is requested to communicate their decision immediately.

7. Holding of a special convention/meeting of Autonomous body employees organisations and Autonomous body pensioners organistions.

The National Secretariat discussed the situation arising out of abnormal delay in revision of pay of Autonomous body employees and also non-issuing of orders for revision of pension of autonomous body pensioners by the concerned Autonomous bodies/Administrative Ministries. In the case of Autonomous body employees, eventhough the Finance Ministry has issued orders extending the 7th CPC pay scales to autonomous body employees on 13-01-2017, the orders are not implemented in 95% of the autonomous bodies due to the stringent conditions imposed by the Finance Ministry. In the case of Autonomous body pensioners, the stand taken by Finance Ministry and Pension Ministry is that they will not issue any orders for revision of pension or grant of Dearness Relief to Autonomous body pensioners. Earlier during 5th CPC and 6th also they have not issued any separate orders, Once Govt. issues orders for revision of pension and grant of dearness relief to Central Govt. Pensioners, it is upto the autonomous bodies to issue orders based on that orders, in consultation with their Administrative Ministries. But no Administrative Ministry has taken action for revision of pension and grant of dearness relief to Autonomous body pensioners. In short a serious crisis has developed regarding revision of pay scales of Autonomous body employees and Revision of Pension and grant of dearness relief to Autonomous body pensioners.

In the view of the above it is decided to convene a special meeting of all Autonomous body employees organisations and Autonomous body pensioners organisations to discuss and decide future course of action. Date and venue of the meeting will finalised shortly.

8. Problems of affiliated organisations of confederation.

Issues relating to the following departments are discussed and suitable decisions taken.

(1) Geological Survey of India

(2) Printing, Publications & stationary.

(3) Ground water Board.

(4) DAVP

(5) Civil Accounts

(6) Passport

Meeting Commenced at 11 AM and ended at 6 PM.

7th Pay Commission: Lower pay not to root out corruption

7th Pay Commission: Lower pay not to root out corruption

New Delhi: Corruption is rampant in many of the central government’s offices, despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s warning that corruption was eating away at India “like a termite“.

Accordingly, the government should consider to root out corruption in the Indian bureaucracy and the official system through ensuring the proper wages and benefits for government employees.

The 50 lakh central government employees are now getting 14.27 % hike in their basic pay under the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission, which is the lowest in 70 years.

The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike in the basic pay, which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.

The 7th Pay Commission slashed down House Rent Allowance (HRA), which constitutes a substantial part of central government employees’ salaries. The Commission had recommended HRA at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of basic pay of the central government employees and the government stuck with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations on HRA and gave nod accordingly.

While The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent for X, Y and Z category of cities respectively.

The hike in HRA, which gives more money in the pockets of the employees, that’s compensatory perks for all central government employees, which has been paid from July 1 and no arrears for any allowance was paid, as per usual practice, the allowances are paid from the date of implementation.

The allowances, including House Rent Allowance (HRA) rates, started to disburse from July 1, this year, while, the 7th Pay Commission award was implemented from 1 January 2016.

There had been widespread demand from central government employee unions to hike HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 percent of basic pay and to be given arrears on allowances including HRA.

“The demands of central government employees over their pay scales as well as minimum pay and allowances are likely not to be considered by the National Anomaly Committee on behalf of the government,” the finance ministry sources said.

“Finance Minister Arun Jaitley finally decided not to give any facility to central government employees better than the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and the government stuck with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations on pay scales and allowances,” the sources added.

The central government employees unions had also demanded for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and asked to raising fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times, which was implemented by the government based on the pay commission recommendations.

If the 2.57 fitment formula is tinkered with, then salary and pension in general for all central government employees will go up.

The minimum pay and allowances should be hiked for central government employees immediately by the government on the acceptance of the unions’ proposals.

Such a move would help to start countering the criminally extortionate mind-set which embeds corruption in many government posts as a way of mitigating low wages. Better-paid staff are more motivated in performing their jobs well and in working to root out corruption.

Implementing such an approach to government employees salaries has been shown to work very well in countries such as Singapore. If we are to emulate this here, the government also needs to take a more rational approach to managing is resources.

This would allow the government to pay, recruit, and retain higher quality government officials and begin to root out corruption and poor quality in public services, once and for all.

7th Pay Commission – Government Firmly Rejects Demand to Reduce Pay Gap

7th Pay Commission – Government Firmly Rejects Demand to Reduce Pay Gap

The pay gap under the 7th Pay Commission was a major issue for Central Government employees. The cabinet decided go ahead with the recommendations of the pay panel which suggested 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay which was effective from January 1 2016.

7th Pay Commission Pay Gap

The cabinet had cleared the recommendations of the pay panel in June which effected 4.8 million central government employees and 5.2 million pensioners.

Recommendations by-passed

While clearing the pay panel’s recommendations the basic hike in pay effective January 1 2016 was at 14.27 per cent. The recommendations made by the Empowered Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha for an average 30 per cent hike in basic pay was bypassed by the Union Cabinet.

Pay matrix

As per the notification there were 18 pay matrices that were approved. The notification said, the highest pay matrix (Level-18) for the Cabinet secretary to the Union government is Rs 2,50,000 (fixed), which was Rs 90,000 (fixed) in the immediate past under 6th pay commission recommendation. The rate of increase is 178%. The pay matrix in the lowest grade (Level-1) is Rs 18,000 which was Rs 7,000 under 6th pay commission recommendation. The rate of increase is 157%.

The ratio of pay between the highest declared pay matrix (Level-18) and the lowest grade (Level -1) in the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is 1:13.9, which was 1:12 as per the previous pay commission:

No Pay Gap made up

All pay commissions in the past had made up the pay gap between the lower paid employees and the top officials from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to Sixth pay commission 1:12. In the first pay commission, the pay of the top bureaucrats was 41 times higher than the employee earning the lowest. The future pay commissions however reduced the ratio from 1:41 in 1947 to about 1:12 in 2006.

Reducing Pay Gap Ruled Out

Reliable sources confirm, the government has put aside the demand by central government employees to reduce the pay gap. The government has categorically made it clear that no decision will be taken to reduce the pay gap under the 7th Pay Commission, confirm sources. Government employees have been demanding for a long time to pay ratio should be minimised. They have also demanded that Rs 25,000 should be the minimum pay in the new pay scale and the fitment factor will be higher than the 2.57 times approved by the government based on the pay commission recommendations.

Anomaly in Pay Matrix levels of 7th CPC

Anomaly in Pay Matrix levels of 7th CPC

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, CHELMSFORD ROAD, NEW DELHI – 110 055

No.IV/NAC/7th CPC/2016
Dated:10/08/2017

The Secretary (E), Railway Board, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Anomaly in Pay Matrix levels of 7th CPC.

NFIR brings to the kind notice of Railway Board the anomaly arisen due to non-grant of 3% of pay towards annual increment, pursuant to implementation of 7th CPC pay matrix levels as explained below:-

(a) Clause (c) of terms of reference of the National Anomaly Committee says that the Official Side and Staff Side are of the opinion that any recommendation is in contravention of the principle or the policy enunciated by the 7th CPC itself without the commission assigning any reason, constitutes an anomaly.

(b) The recommendations of 7th CPC regarding Annual Increment are as follows:

(i) 7th CPC Report – Highlights of recommendations-

Annual Increment- The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3%.

(ii) 7th CPC Report Forward:-

Para 1.19- The prevailing rate of increment is considered satisfactory and has been retained.

(iii) 7th CPC Report – Chapter 4.1-Principles of pay determination –

Para-4.1.17 -The various stages within a pay level moves upwards at the rate of 3% per annum.

(iv) 7th CPC Report -Chapter -5.1 -Pay structure (Civilian employees)

Para 5.1.38-Annual Increment.

“The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3%” Para 5.1.21-The vertical range of each level denotes pay progress within that level. That indicates steps of annual financial progression of 3% within each level.

However, contrary to the above principle laid down by 7th CPC, the actual increment rate in the following pay level of the pay matrix are less than 3% as illustrated in the following table.

S.No Pay level in The pay
level (Cell)
Basic pay in the revised scale Next above basic pay after adding 3% increment Next above basic pay after fixed as
per pay matrix
Amount of loss to the
employee
Actual increment rate 3%
1 12 24900 25647 25600 (Cell 13) 47 2.81
2 2 20500 21115 21100 (Cell 3) 15 2.92
3 9 27600 28428 28400 (Cell 10) 28 2.89
4 11 34300 35329 35300 (Cell 12) 29 2.91
5 10 38100 39243 39200 (Cell 11) 43 2.88
6 9 44900 46247 46200 (Cell 10) 47 2.89
7 13 64100 66023 66000 (Cell 14) 23 2.96
8 9 60400 62212 62200 (Cell 10) 12 2.98
9 18 87700 90331 90300 31 2.96
7th-cpc-increment-rate-anomaly

(d) From the above table it can be concluded that:

1. The recommendations of 7th CPC regarding increment rate is in contravention of the principle or policy enunciated by 7th CPC, hence it constitutes an anomaly .

2. In many stages even though the increment rate shown is 3%, it is rounded off to next below amount causing financial loss to the employees.

3. In the 6th CPC, while calculating increment, if the last digit as one or above, it used to be rounded off to next 10. So in this pay matrix, if the amount is 10 and above, it should be rounded off to next 100.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to take necessary action for rectification of anomaly so as to ensure that the increment @ 3% of pay is granted to employees in whose cases where the actual amount is less than 3%.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt.11
Dated: 10/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: MACPS anomaly as a result of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels – reg.

NFIR gives below an illustration relating to no benefit in certain situations where the employee is granted MACP – rectification requested.

In the existing pay matrix the stages of pay are same in most of the levels such as level 2 & 3, 6 & 7 , 7 & 8 etc. In this situation, if an employee is upgraded under MACP from one level to another level, his pay will be almost (Exactly) same as he may have drawn even without receiving the benefit under MACP.

Illustration:

Existing pay level 7
Existing pay in pay level 7 (cell 11) 60400

MACP Pay level 8
MACP Pay fixed in level 8 (cell 10) 62200
Pay in level 7 with one inc. (Cell 12) 62200

The Federation requests the Railway Board to get the matter reviewed for ensuring adequate financial benefit as provided in Railway Board’s letter dated 10.06.2009 relating to the policy on MACP Scheme.

Federation may be replied on the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully,

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

7thCPC-Child-Care-Leave-CCL

No.NC/JCM/2017

Dated: August 4, 2017

The Secretary(DoP&T),
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)
North Block, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

It may please be recalled that, the 6th CPC, accepting the consistent demand of the Staff Side for grant of Child Care Leave to Women Central Government Employees, had recommended maximum two years CCL for women government employees for taking care of maximum two children, as a welfare measure the women government employee for taking care of maximum two children as a welfare measure. Women government employees were availing this specific leave for taking care of their children with 100% salary for a maximum period of two years, owing to certain difficulties having being experienced by the employer, certain conditions were subsequently laid down to avail CCL by women government employees.

One of the subsequently introduced conditions was that, they can avail their leave in maximum 3 spell during in a calendar year. While 7th CPC has duly acknowledged the requirement of CCL for women government employees as well as single male employees and recommended that the practice should continue as hitherto, additionally entitling single male employee to avail the same, but unfortunately, imposed another new condition that, although for the first 365 CCL 100% salary would be payable. However, for subsequent 365 days only 80% of their salary to be paid.

It may be appreciated that, provision of CCL to women government employees with the sole motto of taking care of their children, particularly at the time the children are in grave need of the same, a welfare measure at the same was being granted with 100% salary before the report of the 7th CPC came in the effect.

Therefore, imposition of the condition of 80% salary payable in the 2nd spell of 365 days is grossly unjustified and uncalled for and would result in withdrawal of a well acknowledged welfare measure.

It is, therefore, requested that the issue may be looked into in the light of the foregoing the earlier practice of payment of 100% salary of the entire 2 years may please be restored as a noble employer.

Comradely yours
