No.AIRF/405(VII CPC)(Allowances)

Dated: June 15, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

 

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Brief of the meeting held today with the Cabinet Secretary

Today I met the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, and shown our anguish regarding non-settlement of demands of the Central Government Employees, particularly non-approval of the allowances by the Cabinet.

The Cabinet Secretary assured that, all the things are in the process and most probably would be placed in the next Cabinet meeting.

Normally, Union Cabinet meets on every Wednesday, but this time 21st June, 2017 being “Yoga Day”, this may defer for one or two days, so according to the assurance given by the Cabinet Secretary, we hope that the matter of the allowances would be settled within this month.

We have also come to know from the reliable sources that the Committee on National Pension System(NPS) has also submitted its report and some serious discussion is on for its implementation.

The Cabinet Secretary also assured that he has discussed the issue of “Very Good” benchmark with the CRB as well as Secretary(DoP&T), where he has advised them that the benchmark should be the same as prevalent in the case of promotion; the same should be for MACP also.

This is for your information.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

With reference to the subject mentioned above and in continuation of this Department’s OM of even number dated 07.09.2016, the undersigned is directed to inform that, a large number of references have been received from Ministries/Departments seeking clarifications relating to the application of the benefit on account of bunching of stages while fixing the pay in the revised pay structure.

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances dropped from today’s cabinet meeting agenda

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances dropped from today’s cabinet meeting agenda

7th Pay Commission Higher allowances

New Delhi: The Union government has dropped higher allowances proposal under the 7th Pay Commission from its today’s cabinet meeting agenda at the last minute, the Finance Ministry officials involved with the process of higher allowances told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.

The officials said recommendation of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha on higher allowances, was due to come before the Union cabinet at its meeting today for formal approval.

However, the item was dropped from the agenda at the last minute, as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is on an official visit to South Korea, they added.

However, they said that the Cabinet may decide on 7th pay commission allowances this month.

In June 2016, the Cabinet approved 14% pay and pension hike for central government employees and pensioners under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations with effect from January 1, 2016.

The decision on higher allowances was postponed by the Cabinet on that time because the 7th Pay Commission wanted abolition of 52 allowances and subsuming of another 36 allowances into larger existing ones out of total 196 allowances.

Employee unions were opposed it, which government complied with formation of the Committee on Allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa in June 2016 to review the allowances.

The Committee on Allowances submitted its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

The report was then taken up by the Department of Expenditure for examination, following which it was passed on to the Empowered Committee of Secretaries set up to screen the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries was in the process of preparing the Cabinet note on higher allowances, which was completed on June 1.

The central government employees are now getting no new allowances (except Dearness Allowance) with their new pay structure till the cabinet nod.

7th Pay Commission: Latest Developments On Allowances, HRA

7th Pay Commission: Latest Developments On Allowances, HRA
The government had last year accepted the recommendation of Justice AK Mathur-headed Seventh Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension.

7TH CPC

The Union Cabinet today did take up proposals related to 7th pay commission allowances, including HRA, as it was not part of the meeting’s agenda, sources told NDTV. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is on an official visit to South Korea. Nearly 50 lakh central government employees could get revised allowances under 7th pay commission award, including HRA or house rent allowance, from July, Financial Express in a report said last week. The report, citing sources, said that the Cabinet may decide on 7th pay commission allowances this month.

The Ashok Lavasa committee, which examined the 7th pay commission’s recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister on April 27. An Empowered Committee of Secretaries was set up screen the report and firm up proposals for the Cabinet.

The Lavasa committee suggested some modifications in some allowances that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance ministry had said in a statement. Economists say that disbursement of 7th pay commission allowances is expected to give a further boost to consumer spending and thus the broader economy.

The Reserve Bank has however flagged upside risks to inflation from disbursement of revised 7th pay commission allowances. “At the current juncture, global political and financial risks materialising into imported inflation and the disbursement of allowances under the 7th central pay commission’s award are upside risks. The date of implementation of the latter is still not announced and as such, it is not factored into the baseline projections,” the RBI said in its latest monetary policy statement last week.

The government had last year accepted the recommendation of Justice AK Mathur-headed Seventh Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension. The 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations relating to allowances were referred to the Ashok Lavasa committee.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent when DA or dearness allowance crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when it crosses 100 per cent. With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

The Cabinet had earlier approved modification in recommendations of the 7th pay commission relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners and family pensioners based on recommendations of a high-level panel. The decision will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners.

7th Central Pay Commission and Pensioners: Petitioning Prime Minister of India

7th Central Pay Commission and Pensioners: Petitioning Prime Minister of India

Petitioning Prime Minister of India
7th Central Pay Commission and Pensioners

By Venu Gopal India

The 7th Central Pay commission in its recommendations have suggested that Pre-2016 pensioners should be compensated for the number of increments they were drawing in their retiring pay scale by giving 3% of basic pension per increment. This is a very beneficial step as far as pensioners are concerned because they will get increased pension. The increments in the retiring pay scale is earned as a result of a life time of service, 35 or 40 or more years of service in government posts.

The cabinet had generously accepted this recommendation of giving 3% per increment to the pensioners. Then one government official had pointed out that the necessary data for implementing this is not available. This is not true. all the relevant information of the pensioner is recorded and replicated in at least four places. In the original Pension Payment Order issued to the pensioner, in the head quarter of the office from which the pensioner had retired, the Central Pension Accounting Office, New Delhi and the Central Pension Processing Cell of the bank from which the pensioner gets the pension. An injustice is done to all the 52 lakh pensioners by denying them the benefit of the increments that they have earned by a life long service in Government establishments.

Hence it is requested that the Option 1 of the 7th CPC which takes into account the increments while fixing the pension be implemented and justice is done to the 52 lakhs Central Government Pensioners.

This petition will be delivered to:

Prime Minister of India

High Expectation over announcement of 7th CPC Allowances and its Date of Effect

High Expectation over announcement of 7th CPC Allowances and its Date of Effect

7th CPC Allowances and its Date of Effect – Actual report in the current scenario

7th CPC Allowances-central-government-employees

7th CPC Allowances is now become a hottest topic of discussion and most expected matter by Central Staffs. Central Government confirmed officially that the Report of the Allowance Committee is submitted to the Government. Later the Cabinet Secretary told that Allowance Committee Report will be examined by the Expert Committee of Secretaries which was appointed initially to expedite the Recommendations of 7th Pay Commission.

It was said that the Cabinet Secretary Fixed 1st June 2017 for perusal of the report of the Allowances Committee by the Empowered Committee. Whether ECoS has finished its work or not is not known yet.

The Cabinet Committee under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi has met On 7th June 2017. There was lot of expectation on that day that the Cabinet would announce its decision about 7th CPC Allowances. But nothing has been announced so far.

The CG Staff have been frustrated by the Government’s approach towards settling the issue of 7th CPC Allowances. The Government servants are considerably losing monetary benefits they are supposed to get from the implementation of 7th CPC Recommendation. They are expecting the following two things to be decided at the earliest.

The amount of Increase in the Rates and Percentage of Allowances What will be the Date of effect ..?

Delaying the Decision on the above two issues are the main reason for the frustration of Central Government Employees. The Federation are trying their level best to give pressure through agitation program to invite the attention of Central Government to announce the 7th CPC Allowances as soon as possible.

7th Pay Commission: Suspense Over Higher Allowances

Higher-Allowances-7thCPC

New Delhi: Suspense over when would be higher allowances announced even one month 11 days passed after the ‘Committee on Allowances’ submitted its review report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitey.

The higher allowances were not part of the agenda for the union cabinet meeting yesterday because Finance Minister Arun Jaitley embarked on a four-day visit to Paris on Tuesday.

The higher allowances including HRA under 7th Pay Commission recommendations is now expected to be placed in the next cabinet meeting after Jaitley will return to India on June 10 from Paris.

The 7th Pay Commission proposals on salary and pension had already been approved in June 2016 with effect from January 1, 2016 but central government employees are now drawing allowances at old rates.

The 7th Pay Commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

Employee unions were opposed it that governments complied with formation of the Committee on Allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to review it.

The Committee on Allowances submitted its review report this year on April 27.

The report was then taken up by the Department of Expenditure for examination, following which it was passed on to Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha set up to screen the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

The Media reports said the Empowered Committee of Secretaries prepared the report on higher allowances for cabinet nod and the E-CoS dittoed the report of the committee on allowances but the report of the committee on allowances hasn’t made public.

The committee on allowances also stuck with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations on allowances, a Finance Ministry official involved with the process told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.

The 7th Pay Commission also recommended slashing the House Rent Allowance (HRA) from 30, 20 and 10 per cent to 24, 16 and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively.

The central government employees unions demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 percent of basic pay instead of 24, 16 and 8 percent.

They also demanded the government to implement higher allowances without further delay with effect from January 1, 2016.

Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade pay as granted under MACPS”.

In view of the above, nodal Branches for 6th  & 7th CPC viz. PC-VI and PC-VII, have been consulted. They have advised that the Additional Allowance/Special Running Staff Allowance is not reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion. As such it is not feasible to reckon the same for pay fixation purpose while granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
for Secretary/Railway Board

7th Pay Commission Allowances related report submitted to Cabinet by Empowered Committee Secretaries

7th Pay Commission Allowances related report submitted to Cabinet by Empowered Committee Secretaries

Highest HRA at 27% as against 30% demanded by Staff Side

7th Pay Commission Allowances

As per Zee Business News report, Empowered Committee of Secretaries has presented its report on 7th Pay Commission Allowances to Cabinet for its approval. It is further reported that Cabinet is likely take crucial decision on this issue involving around 50 lakh Central Government Employees during next Week.

Earlier, the Lavasa Committee appointed by the Govt for examining the Allowances related recommendations of 7th Pay Commission submitted its report to Govt recently. Following the usual procedure of examination by Empowered Committee of Secretaries in the case of Financial decision to be taken by Cabinet, the report relating to 7th Pay Commission allowances was also examined by Empowered Committee.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) has submitted its report on higher allowances like House Rent Allowance (HRA), Dearness Allowance (DA) and Transport Allowance (TA) under 7th Pay Commission (7th CPC) to Union Cabinet, sources told Alok Priyadarshi of Zee News.

However, the demand of the central government employees that HRA of 10%, 20% and 30% on revised 7th CPC Pay based on classes of cities was not considered in favourably, reports Zee News. Instead, Empowered Committee have recommended highest HRA slab ranging between 25%-27% of the basic as against demand of 30%

7th Pay Commission has earlier recommended house rent allowance at the 24%, 16% and 8% of the 7th CPC revised Basic Pay for Class X, Class Y and Class Z cities respectively.

If the report of the Empowered Committee is acceptable to the Cabinet, it more likely that final decision on revision of 7th Pay Commission Allowances will be taken by Cabinet next week.
