Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission

No. I/5(E)

Dated: 07/12/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/HW-1 dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No. 36/2018).
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. I/5(E) dated 30/07/2018.

Federation vide its letter dated 30th July, 2018 brought to the notice of Railway Board specific cases through illustrations where revised rates of Night Duty Allowance to be paid to various categories of staff have been lowered down on implementation of Board’s instructions dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No. 36/2018) and requested the Railway Ministry to review its decision and issue revised instructions duly allowing the rates of Night Duty Allowance to such staff at the rates mentioned in RBE No. 61/2016 w.e.f. 01/01/2016. A period for more than four months has passed, unfortunately revised instructions have not been issued so far causing financial loss to the staff performing night duty.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to kindly consider the points brought out vide Federation’s letter dated 30/07/2018 and issued revised instructions accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah),

Streamlining of National Pension System (NPS)

Posted On: 10 DEC 2018 3:01PM by PIB Delhi

Decision

The Union Cabinet in its Meeting on 6th December, 2018 has approved the following proposal for streamlining the National Pension System (NPS).

  • Enhancement of the mandatory contribution by the Central Government for its employees covered under NPS Tier-I from the existing 10% to 14%.
  • Providing freedom of choice for selection of Pension Funds and pattern of investment to central government employees.
  • Payment of compensation for non-deposit or delayed deposit of NPS contributions during 2004-2012.
  • Tax exemption limit for lump sum withdrawal on exit has been enhanced to 60%. With this, the entire withdrawal will now be exempt from income tax. (At present, 40% of the total accumulated corpus utilized for purchase of annuity is already tax exempted. Out of 60% of the accumulated corpus withdrawn by the NPS subscriber at the time of retirement, 40% is tax exempt and balance 20% is taxable.)
  • Contribution by the Government employees under Tier-II of NPS will now be covered under Section 80 C for deduction up to Rs. 1.50 lakh for the purpose of income tax at par with the other schemes such as General Provident Fund, Contributory Provident Fund, Employees Provident Fund and Public Provident Fund provided that there is a lock-in period of 3 years.

Background

The new entrants to the central government service on or after 01.01.2004 are covered under the National Pension System (NPS). The Seventh Pay Commission (7th CPC), during its deliberations, examined certain concerns regarding NPS and made recommendations in the year 2015. The 7th CPC recommended for setting up of a Committee of Secretaries in this regard. Accordingly, a Committee of Secretaries was constituted by the Government to suggest measures for streamlining the implementation of NPS in the year 2016. The Committee submitted its report in the year 2018. Accordingly, based on the recommendations of the Committee, draft Cabinet Note was placed before the Cabinet for its approval.

Implementation strategy and targets

The proposed changes to NPS would be made applicable immediately once time critical decisions are taken in consultation with the other concerned Ministries / Departments.

Major impact

  • Increase in the eventual accumulated corpus of all central government employees covered under NPS.
  • Greater pension payouts after retirement without any additional burden on the employee.
  • Freedom of choice for selection of Pension Funds and investment pattern to central government employees.
  • Benefit to approximately 18 lakh central government employees covered under NPS.
  • Augmenting old-age security in a time of rising life expectancy.
  • By making NPS more attractive, government will be facilitated in attracting and retaining the best talent.

Expenditure involved

The impact on the exchequer on this account is estimated to be to the tune of around Rs. 2840 crores for the financial year 2019-20, and will be in the nature of a recurring expenditure. The financial implications on account of provisions regarding payment of compensation for non-deposit or delayed deposit of NPS contributions during 2004-2012, would be in addition to the amount indicated above.

No. of beneficiaries

Approximately 18 lakh central government employees covered under NPS would be benefitted from the streamlining of the National Pension System.

States/districts covered

Pan India.

Details and progress of scheme if already running

Presently, the new entrants to the central government service on or after 01.01.2004 are covered under the NPS. NPS is being implemented and regulated by Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority in the country.

7th CPC Central Government has rejected the main demand for higher Military Service Pay for Junior Commissioned Officers

7th CPC Central Government has rejected the main demand for higher Military Service Pay for Junior Commissioned Officers.

7th CPC Military Service Pay (MSP)

Govt Rejects Main Demand

7th CPC Military Service Pay (MSP) – Govt Rejects Main Demand

Central Government has rejected the main demand for higher Military Service Pay for Junior Commissioned Officers.

As per the media news today, the Army Headquarters was very upset over the decision of the Finace Ministry. Around 1.12 lakh military personnel including 87,646 Junior Commissioned Officers and 25,434 personnel of equivalent rank from the Navy and the India Air Force will be impacted by the decision.

The Defence Force Personnel, particularly the JCOs in Army, demanded to increase the MSP from Rs.5500 to Rs.10000. Earlier the 7th Central Pay Commission has recommended MSP Rs.5200 to JCOs.(Table shown the rates of MSP recommended by 7th CPC)

7th Central Pay Commission has applied a common multiplication factor of 2.57 on MSP of JCOs and ORs. As per methodology, the MSP has been raised to Rs.5200 pm from Rs.2000 pm.

The long pending demand on MSP that the commission forgot to consider that both JOCs and Equivalents are also Group ‘B’ Officers.

Whereas, the Group ‘B’ officers in Military Nursing Service, MSP had been fixed Rs.10800 pm. All JCOs and ORs (Combatants) demanded to raise the MSP to Rs.10000 pm at par with MNS Officers.

The 7th CPC recommended the rates of MSP was as follows:

Designation Existing Rate of MSP Recommended by 7th CPC
Service Officers 6000 15500
Nursing Officers 4200 10800
JCO / ORs 2000 5200
Non Combatants (Enrolled) in the Air Force 1000 3600

MSP will continue to be reckoned as Basic Pay for purposes of Dearness Allowance, as also in the computation of pension. Military Service Pay will however not be counted for purposes of House Rent Allowance, Composite Transfer Grant and Annual Increment.

The Military Service Pay, which is a compensation for the various aspects e.g., intangibles linked to special conditions of service, conducting full spectrum operation including force projection outside India’s boundaries, superannuation at a younger age and for the edge historically enjoyed by the Defence Forces over the civilian scales, will be admissible to the Defence forces personnel only.

Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of RS (RP) Rules, 2016

NFIR

No. 1/2/Part IV

Dated: 13/11/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of RS (RP) Rules, 2016-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B.-Pt. I dated 06/01/2017.

(ii) Railway Board’s reply vide letter No. PC-VII/2017/U/7 dated 31/03/2017.
(iii) DoP&T’s O.M. No. 13/02/2017-Estt. (Pay-I) dated 28/08/2018.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/I/6/2 dated 20/09/2018.

While thanking the Railway Board for its letter dated 20/09/2018 giving one month’s time from the date of issue of Board’s letter, Federation feels disappointed to state that the Board’s order giving opportunity to exercise option for fixation of pay from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, under RS (RP) Rules, 2016 have been issued to the Zonal Railways, unfortunately these orders have not been circulated by the Zonal Railways and the Divisions to the field units with the result the staff are unable to exercise option in time. NFIR suggests that in such orders the time for exercising option should be atleast 90 days from the date the instructions are circulated by the DRMs/Unit incharges to enable the staff to avail the option opportunity.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly issue corrigendum to order dated 20th September, 2018 (RBE 142/2018) clearly mentioning that the period of 90 days will count from the date these orders circulated by the Divisional/Units Administration so as to enable the staff to exercise option. Copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

Subject:- Revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners for the ranks of Commissioned officer: Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission Concordance tables-regarding.

Reference:-(i) This office letter No.G-1/M/01/ICOs/7th CPC/Vol-II dated 29.09.2017 addressed to PCDA(O) Pune.
(ii) This office letter No. G-1/M/01/ICOs/7th CPC/Vol-III dated 30.11.2017 addressed to Naval Pension office and Air Force Central Accounts office amongst other
(iii) GoI, MoD letter No. 17(1)/2017(02)/D(Pen/Pol) dated 17.10.2018.

1. Please refer to this office letters cited above issued for revision of pension/ family pension in respect of pre-01.01.2016 retired/discharged/invalided out/died Armed Forces officers. Consequent upon issuance of the concordance table vide GoI, MoD letter No. 17(1)/2017(02)/D(Pension/Policy) dated 17.10.2018, revision of pension under notional pay fixation method is to be carried out by the PSAs concerned by issuing Corr. PPO.

2. These concordance tables have been prepared to facilitate fixation of notional pay of Pre‐2016 pensioners/ family pensioners by the PCDA(O) Pune/ NPO, Mumbai / AFCAO New Delhi in case of commissioned officers of Army / Navy /Air Force respectively. Due care has been taken to prepare these concordance tables based on the fitment tables for fixation of pay from 3rd to 4th, 4th to 5th, 5th to 6th and 6th to 7th Pay Commission. In case of any inconsistency in the concordance tables vis‐a‐vis the relevant rules / instructions, the notional pay and pension/ family pension of pre‐2016 pensioners / family pensioners may be fixed in accordance with the rules / instructions applicable for fixation of pay in the intervening Pay Commission periods.

3. The pension / family pension of pre‐2016 Armed Forces pensioners / family pensioners may be revised using the appropriate concordance table in accordance with the instructions contained in this Ministry’s above quoted letter dated 05/09/2017.

To enable PSAs to implement the MOD letter dated 05.09.2017 para‐18 of the ibid letter clearly specifies that it shall be the responsibility of the PCDA(O) Pune/AFCAO New Delhi/ NPO Mumbai in case of Commissioned Officers of Army / Air Force / Navy to initiate cases for revision of pension/ family pension of Pre‐01‐01‐2016 pensioners/ family pensioners with effect from 01.01.2016 in accordance with these orders for issue of revised Pension Payment Order (PPO) for every pensioner / family pensioner. The Pension Sanctioning Authority would impress upon the PCDA(O) Pune / AFCAO New Delhi/ NPO, Mumbai for fixation of pay on notional basis based on extant orders and will issue revised Pension Payment Order at the earliest.

5. Suo-moto Revision:

This office has carried out an analysis to assess number of cases of Pre-16 pensioners where revision is involved. As per Sanction Database, an estimated 52,000 cases of Commissioned Officers requires revision of pension/family pension. To carry out revision through normal conventional method of calling for LPC‐CUM‐Data Sheet with vetting of Pay details by Pay Accounting Office concerned would be time consuming. Therefore, it has been proposed to carry out suo‐moto revision subject to the approval of Ministry of Defence, wherever feasible based on PDA details and Pay details (and other info like Rank and QS) wherever available in master data base and based on notional Pay fixation as per Concordance table for 7th CPC issued vide GOI. MOD letter dated 17/10/2018.

6. Initiation for remaining cases where suo moto is not feasible

In remaining cases where Pay Details (and other related fields like Rank and QS) and current PDA details are not available with this office, in such cases this office will not be able to revise the pension and issue the revised PPO on suo‐moto basis. In these cases, claims / inputs will be required from concerned Record keeping and Pay Accounting office viz. PCDA(O) Pune/ NPO, Mumbai / AFCAO New Delhi in case of commissioned officers of Army / Navy /Air Force respectively to authenticate the pensioner details. Similarly, in case of Post-96 retired Majors and equivalent granted Pay of Lt. Col. and equivalent notional pay in concordance table has not been provided. In such type of cases the notional pay will be fixed by concerned Pay accounts office. Therefore, to carryout effective, paperless and speedy revision, an Utility software has been developed by PCDA(P) office to be hosted on CGDA WAN to make available all the data of Pre‐2016 Commissioned Officers pensioners/family pensioners for access, modification, initiation (if not found available in database of PCDA(P) on search) and for fixation of 7th CPC pay details by respective Pay Accounting Office in line with MOD letter dated 05/09/2017 (Para 18). Due care has been taken to account for all the cases of live pensioners. However still if any case is missing, the same may be initiated through this utility by PAO and forwarded online through utility.

In case of revision of Pre-01.01.2016 Family Pension /Disability cases or fresh initiation, copy of concerned PPO may also to be uploaded by PAO concerned for ready reference while submitting the revision claim through utility provided

-Respondents

(By Advocate Shri N.D. Kaushik)
(OA No.571/2017)

O R D E R

The applicant retired from the post of Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India with effect from the afternoon of 31.12.2015 on attaining the age of superannuation. His date of birth is 01.01.1956. He has been deprived of the benefits of 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations, which came into effect w.e.f. 01.01.2016 on the ground that he retired prior to that date i.e. 31.12.2015.
2. The applicant submitted his representation dated 14.12.2015 (Annexure A-4 colly.) to the Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training (DoP&T) (respondent no.3) stating therein that he would cease to be a Government servant in the midnight of 31.12.2016 and thus acquired the status of a pensioner in the forenoon of 1st January, 2016. Hence, he is entitled to all the pensionary benefits viz. gratuity, fixation of pay/pension as per 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations. The representation dated 14.12.2015 of the applicant was forwarded by the Additional Secretary (S&V), DoPT to the Joint Secretary, Pension, Department of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare (DoP&PW) vide letter dated 29.02.2016. The relevant portion of  the said letter is extracted below:

“2. In his representation, Shri Yadav has contended that the pensionary benefits accrue to a person when he acquires the status of Pensioner. As per the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of S. Banerjee, the persons born on 1st January, 2015 were in Government service upto midnight of 31st December, 2015 and acquired the status of pensioner only in the forenoon of 1st January, 2016. Applying the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of S. Banerjee, the persons born on 1st January, 1956 acquired the status of pensioner only in the forenoon of 1st January, 2016. The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are likely to be implemented with effect from 1st January, 2016.”

3. Pursuant to the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations, DoP&PW (respondent No.2) issued Annexure A-2 Om dated 04.08.2016 revising the pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners. The grievance of the applicant is that his retiral benefits have been fixed in terms of Annexure A-2 OM, treating him as a pre-2016 retiree whereas he should be treated as a retiree w.e.f. 1.1.2016 and thus the 7th Central Pay Commission’s benefits should  accrue to him.
4. Respondent No.2 considered the representation dated 14.12.2015 of the applicant, which was duly forwarded by the DoPT vide aforementioned letter dated 29.02.2016 and vide impugned Annexure A-1 OM dated 03.01.2018 has declined the request of the applicant. The relevant portions of this OM are reproduced below:

“4. In the case of Shri Yadav, he actually retired on 31.12.2015 and was not in service on 1.1.16. Judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Shri S. Benerjee has no relevance in his case. In fact Rule 5 (2) of CCS (Pension) Rules, has already been amended and as per the amended rule date of voluntary retirement is treated as the last working day. Therefore, those who retired voluntarily on 1.1.2016 would be eligible for pay and pension benefits of 7th CPC as a post 1.1.2016 retiree.

5. Since Shri Yadav retired on superannuation on 31.12.2015, he is to be treated as a pre-2016 pensioner and is accordingly entitled to the benefit in revision of pension under the OM No.38/37/46-P&PW(A)(ii), dated 4.8.16.”

5. Aggrieved by the impugned Annexure A-1 OM dated 03.01.2017, the applicant has filed the instant OA praying for the following relief:

“B) That this Hon’ble Tribunal may be pleased to hold and declare that the impugned orders/action of the respondents is illegal, arbitrary, discriminatory, unconstitutional and violative of Articles 14 and 16 of the Constitution of India and quash and set aside the same and be pleased to further hold that since the Applicant superannuated with effect from the afternoon of 31.12.2015 and relinquished the charge of the post of Deputy Secretary in the afternoon of that date, he, as per law, is deemed to have effectively retired on or with effect from 1.1.2016 and therefore, cannot be treated as pre-2016 pensioner and direct the respondents to grant the retiral benefits such as fixation of pension, DCRG, commutation of pension, leave encashment etc. accordingly and pay the arrears thereof  with 12% interest within a specified time-frame.”

6. Pursuant to the notices issued, the respondents entered appearance and filed their reply in which they have broadly made the following important averments:

6.1 The applicant retired from Government service on 31.12.2015 and accordingly he has been treated as a pre-2016 pensioner and his pensionary benefits have been fixed in terms of the OM dated 4.8.2016 (Annexure A-2) of the DoP&PW.

6.2 As per the provisions of FR 56(a), a Government servant whose date of birth is first of a month shall retire from service in the afternoon of the last day of the preceding month on attaining the age of 60 years. Hence, the applicant, whose date of birth is 1.1.1956 is deemed to have been retired in the afternoon of 31.12.2015.

6.3 The judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court in S. Banerjee v.Union of India, [AIR 1990 SC 295], relied upon by the applicant in para 4 (d) of the OA, is not relevant in the instant case. It is stated that Shri S. Banerjee had retired voluntarily and his date of retirement was 1.1.1986 whereas in the instant case the applicant retired on attaining the age of superannuation in the afternoon of 31.12.2015 and as such was not in service on 1.1.2016.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Travel entitlements of Government employees for the purpose of LTC post Seventh Central Pay Commission – clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M.of even no. dated 19.09.2017 on the subject noted above, which inter-alia provides that the travel entitlements of  Government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide Ministry of Finance’s O.M. No. 19030/1/2017-E.lV dated 13.07.2017, except the air travel  entitlement for Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, which is allowed in respect of TA only and not for LTC.

2. It is observed that many Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix had inadvertently travelled by air on LTC during the intervening period from 13.07.2017  to 19.09.2017 (i.e. post issue of MoF’s O.M. dated 13.07.2017 and before the issue of DoPT’s  O.M. dated 19.09.2017) under the impression that they were entitled for air travel as per the  revised TA rules.
