OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: 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 CCS (RP) Rules, 2016-regarding.

Prior to implementation of 6th CPC Report, the pay fixation on promotion was governed by provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1). In 6th CPC context, the first part of FR 22(I)(a)(1) was replaced by Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. Similarly, consequent upon implementation of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 in 7th CPC context, the pay fixation on promotion is regulated by the provisions of Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. This rule regulates pay fixation on promotion if the same is opted by the employee from the date of promotion itself. The issue of relevancy of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) as well as the methodology of fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance, of a Government Servant in case he opts for pay fixation from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) has been considered in this Department.

2. In this context, proviso under FR 22(I)(a)(1) inter-alia provides that the Government Servant (other than those appointed on deputation basis to ex-cadre post or on ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) shall have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion or to have the pay fixed from the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of the pay in lower grade.

3. After due consideration in this matter, the President is pleased to decide as follows:

(i) FR 22(I)(a)(1) holds good with regard to availability of option clause for pay fixation, to a Government Servant holding a post, other than a tenure post, in a substantive or temporary or officiating capacity, who is promoted or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity, as the case may be, subject to the fulfilment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant Recruitment Rules,to another post carrying duties or responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him/her. Such Government Servant may opt to have his/her pay fixed from the Date of his/her Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) accruing in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, except in cases of appointment on deputation basis to an ex-cadre post or on direct recruitment basis or appointment/promotion on ad-hoc basis.

(ii) In case, consequent upon his/her promotion, the Government Servant opts to his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) in the Level of the post from which Government Servant is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his/her DNI, the Government Servant shall be placed at the next higher cell in the level of the post to which he/she is promoted.

promotion-chart

(iii) Subsequently, on DNI in the level of the post to which Government Servant is promoted, his//her Pay will be re-fixed and two increments (one accrued on accoun tof annual increment and the second accrued on account of promotion) may be granted in the Level from which the Government Servant is promoted and he/she shall be placed, at a Cell equal to the figure so arrived, in the Level of the post to which he/she is promoted; and if no such Cell is available in the Level to which he/she is promoted, he/she shall be placed at the next higher Cell in that Level.promotion-chart

(iv) In such cases where Government Servant opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, the next increment as well as Date of Next Increment (DNI) will be regulated accordingly.

4. It is further reiterated that in order to enable the officials to exercise the option within the time limit prescribed, the option clause for pay fixation on promotion with effect from date of promotion/DNI shall invariably be incorporated in the promotion/appointment order so that there are no cases of delay in exercising the options due to administrative lapse.

5. In so far as their application to the employees belonging to the Indian Audit and Accounts Department is concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller &Auditor General of India.

Subject: Extension of Injury Leave beyond 28 months in factory accident case.

Reference: Minutes of 21st SCM of JCM-III Level Council (OFB) held on 30.03.2017

Respected Sir,

Having gone through the minutes circulated vide OFB letter No.20/14/21(11)/A/IR, Dated 15.05.2017, it is observed that Secretary, Staff Side Shri R Srinivasan has raised the issue that the employee who met with an accident while on duty is being granted hospital leave upto 120 days with full pay and thereafter he may be granted half pay leave upto 28 months. But after 28 months there is no benefit, no pay is allowed because there is no provision of half pay leave. Minutes further states that the matter has been taken up with MoD wide OFB letter No. 1240/Per/Policy/Accident, Dated 24.06.2016.

In this regard, it is submitted that Rule 46 of CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972 & Article 291 of Civil Service Regulations deals with the Hospital Leave.

As per Rule 46 of CCS (Leave Rules) the authority competent to grant leave may grant hospital leave to Class IV & Class III Government servants, while under medical treatment in a hospital or otherwise, for illness or injury not exceeding 28 months. Hospital Leave may be granted for 120 days equal to earned leave and the remaining period will be equal to half pay leave.

Min of Defence ID No. 11(13)(60)1511/D(Civ-II), Dated 10.02.1961 under Article 291 of CSR states that it has been decided in modification of the provisions of Article 291, Civil Service Regulations that hospital leave may be granted upto 03 months on full pay or six months on half pay in any period of three years to all class IV Government servants and also to those class III Government servants whose duties involve handling of dangerous machinery, explosive materials, poisonous drugs, etc. or the performance of hazardous tasks.

Further, it states that Industrial staff will also be entitled to hospital leave in the same manner as indicated above. Subsequently, vide MoD ID No. 11(13)60/5678/D (Civ-II), Dated 28.05.1962 it was clarified that all categories of staff other than Gazetted Officers in the Defence Establishments will be entitled to hospital leave.

Further, MoD issued Memo No. 11(6)67/5255/D(Civ-II), Dated 15.05.1967 which reads as under:-

“The Government has had under consideration for some time the question of removing the restrictions on the quantum of hospital leave to Government servants who suffer illness or injury directly due to risks incurred in the course of their official duties.

The President is now pleased to decide that the categories of the Defence civilians eligible for this kind of leave in terms of Defence Ministry‟s Office Memorandum No. 11(13)/60/1511/D(Civ-II), Dated 10.02.1961 and 11(13)/60/5678/D(Civ-II) , dated 28.05.1962 will be entitled to hospital leave without any restriction on the quantum of leave. This kind of leave can be granted for such period as is considered necessary by the authority competent to grant it.

The decision takes effect from 31.03.1967.

Article 291 Civil Services Regulations will be amended in due course.”

From above, it may be deduced that all the employees (upto Non-Gazetted) of Ord Fys are entitled for hospital leave without any restriction on the quantum of leave if he met with accident while on duty.

Therefore, you are requested to issue necessary clarification to resolve the issue without further delay.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Applicability of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 to persons re-employed in Government Service after retirement and whose pay is debitable to Civil Estimates

The pay fixation of re-employed pensioners on re-employment in Central
Government, including that of Defence Forces personnel/officers, is being done in accordance with Central Civil Services (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, issued vide this Department’s O.M. No. 3/1/85-Estt. (Pay II) dated 31st July, 1986 (as revised from time to time). Persons re-employed in Government service after retirement have been excluded from the purview of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 vide Rule 2 (2)(vii) thereof. The question of extension of the benefit of the revised pay rules to these persons and the procedure to be followed for fixing their pay in the revised pay structure has been considered by the Government. The President is pleased to decide that, in partial modification of the Rule 2 (2)(vii) of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, the provisions of these rules shall apply to such persons also who were in / came into re-employment on or after 1 st
January, 2016, subject to the orders hereinafter contained. This decision will cover all Government servants re-employed in Central Civil Departments other than those employed on contract except where the contract provides otherwise, whether they have retired with or without a pension and/or gratuity or any other retirement benefits, e.g. contributory fund etc. from a civil post or from the Armed Forces.

2. Re-employed persons who become eligible to elect revised pay structure in accordance with these orders should exercise their option in the manner laid down in Rule 5 and 6 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, within three months of the date of issue of these orders or in cases where the existing scales of pay of the posts held by them are revised subsequent to the issue of these orders, within three months of the date of such order.

Fixation / drawal of pay of Personnel / Officers re-employed prior to 01.01.2016 and who were in re-employment as on 01.01.2016:

3 (a) The initial pay of a re-employed Government servant who elects or is deemed to have elected to be governed by the revised pay structure from the 1 st day of January, 2016 shall be fixed according to the provisions of Rule 7 of the C.C.S. (R.P.) Rules, 2016, if he/she is-

(i) a Government servant who retired without receiving a pension, gratuity or any other retirement benefit and
(ii) a retired Government servant who received pension or any other retirement benefits but which were ignored while fixing pay on re-employment.

3(b) The initial pay of a re-employed Government servant who retired with a pension or any other retirement benefit and whose pay on re-employment was fixed with reference to these benefits or ignoring a part thereof, and who elects or is deemed to have elected to be governed by the revised structure from the 1 st day of January, 2016 shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions contained in Rule 7 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016. Pension (excluding the ignorable portion of pension, if any), as defined in para 3(1) of CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 admissible on relevant date, i.e. date of coming over to the revised pay structure, effective from 1.1.2016 or later, shall be deducted from his / her pay in accordance with the general policy of the Government on fixation and subsequent drawal of pay of re-employed pensioners.

3(c) In addition to the pay so fixed, the re-employed Government servant would continue to draw the retirement benefits he / she was permitted to draw in the prerevised scales, as modified based on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission, orders in respect of which have been issued separately by the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare.

3(d) Where a re-employed Government servant elects to draw his / her pay in the existing pay structure and is brought over to revised pay structure from a date later than the 1st day of January, 2016, his /her pay from the later date in the revised scale shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of Rule 11 of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

4. Further, the existing ceiling of Rs. 80,000/- for drawal of pay plus gross pension on re-employment is enhanced to Rs.2,25,000/-, the maximum basic pay prescribed for Secretary to the Government of India under Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

Ignorable part of Pension

5. The President is also pleased to enhance the ignorable part of pension
from Rs. 4000/- to Rs. 15,000/- (Rupees Fifteen Thousand) in the case of Commissioned Service Officers and Civil Officers holding Group ‘A’ posts who retire before attaining the age of 55 years. The existing limits of civil and military pensions to be ignored in fixing the pay of re-employed pensioners will, therefore, cease to be applicable to cases of such pensioners as are re-employed on or after 1.1.2016.

6. In the case of persons who were already on re-employment as on 01.01.2016, the pay may be fixed on the basis of these orders, with effect from the date of coming over to the new pay structure, i.e. 01.01.2016 or later, as per the option exercised by them in terms of para 2 above. In such case, their terms would be determined afresh as if they have been re-employed for the first time from such date of coming over to the
new pay structure.

7. Pursuant to the introduction of the system of Pay Matrix vide the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, the President is further pleased to amend the relevant provisions of CCS (Fixation of Pay of re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 in the manner indicated below:

Existing provision (1986 Orders read with OM dated 5th April 2010) Revised provision
Para 4(a): Re-employed pensioners shall be allowed to draw pay only in the prescribed pay scale/pay structure of the post in which they are re-employed. No protection of the scales of pay/pay structure of the post held by them prior to retirement shall be given.Note: Under the provisions of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, revised pay structure comprises the grade pay attached to the post and the applicable pay band.

A Colonel who retired with basic pay of Rs.61700 (grade pay Rs.8700; pay in the pay band Rs.53000) is re-employed as a Deputy Secretary in an organization with grade pay of Rs.7600. In this case, on reemployment, his basic pay will continue to be Rs.61700. However, his grade pay on re-employment will be Rs.7600 and the pay in the pay band Rs.54100. Thereafter, the non-ignorable part of the pension will be reduced from the pay so fixed.

Note: In the revised pay structure, basic pay is pay in the pay band plus the grade pay attached to the post.

Order 4(b)(ii): In cases where the entire pension and pensionary benefits are not ignored for pay fixation, the initial basic pay on re-employment shall be fixed at the same stage as the last basic pay drawn before retirement. If there is no such stage in the re-employed post, the pay shall be fixed at the stage next above that pay. If the maximum pay in the Level applicable to the post in which a pensioner is reemployed is less than the last basic pay drawn by him before retirement, his initial basic pay shall be fixed at such maximum pay of the re-employed post. Similarly, if the minimum pay in the Level applicable to the post in which a pensioner is reemployed is more than the last basic pay drawn by him before retirement, his initial basic pay shall be fixed at such minimum pay of the re-employed post. However, in all these cases, the non-ignorable part of the pension shall be reduced from the pay so fixed.Note 1: Revised pay structure in relation to a post will be as defined in Rule 3(ix) of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

Note 2: “Basic Pay” in the revised pay structure means the pay drawn in the prescribed Level in the Pay Matrix.

Note 3: Last pay drawn shall be as per definition of pre-retirement pay in terms of Order 3 of the CCS (Fixation of Pay of reemployed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, read with DoPT OM No. 3/19/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 8th November 2010.

8. Apart from the above, it is also clarified as under:

(i) Drawal of increments: Once the initial pay of the re-employed pensioner has been fixed in the manner indicated above, he will be allowed to draw normal increments as per the provisions of Rule 9 and 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 read with Order 5 of the CCS (Fixation of Pay of re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986.

(ii) Treatment of Military Service Pay (MSP): MSP is granted to Defence Forces officers/personnel while they are serving in the Defence Forces. Accordingly, on their re-employment in civilian organizations, including secret organizations under the Cabinet Secretariat umbrella, the question of grant of MSP to such officers/personnel does not arise. However, the benefit of MSP in the pension should not be withdrawn. Accordingly, while the pension of such re-employed pensioners will include the element of MSP, they will not be granted MSP as part of pay while working in civilian organizations. Also, in respect of all those Defence Officers / personnel, whose pension contains an element of MSP and whose pay on reemployment is subject to deduction of pension (excluding the  ignorable portion, if any), the element of MSP as contained in the pension shall be ignored while deducting the pension at the time of pay fixation. In other words, the MSP portion of the pension need not be deducted from the pay fixed on re-employment.

In all these cases, the nonignorable part of the pension shall be reduced from the pay so fixed. Regulation of MSP, however, shall be as per clarification in para 8(ii) above.

(iv) Fixation / drawal of pay in all other cases: Pay fixation in cases not covered in Order 4(d) will be as per the general principle of ‘pay minus pension’, i.e. while the last pay drawn shall be reckoned for pay fixation, the entire pension shall be deducted from the pay so fixed. Regulation of MSP, however, shall be as per clarification in para 8(ii) above.

9. An undertaking may be obtained from re-employed pensioners who opt / are deemed to have opted for the revised pay structure to the effect that, they understand and agree that the special dispensation provided through this O.M. is subject to the condition of deduction of pension as admissible to them from time to time, wherever required as per extant instructions.

10. These instructions shall apply in respect of those re-employed pensioners who are re-employed against civil posts carrying pay upto Level 17 of the Pay Matrix of CCS(RP) Rules, 2016.

11. In so far as the persons serving in the Indian Audit & Accounts Department are concerned, these orders are being issued after consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.

12. These orders shall take effect from 1.1.2016.

Subject: One Day Strike on 16th March, 2017.

Reference is invited to this office 0M of even no.502 dated 18th January, 2017. All India Civil Accounts Employees Association has intimated that the proposed One Day Strike on 15th February, 2017 has been to 16th March, 2017.

2. Attention is invited to the provisions of Government of India (Ministry of Home Affairs) 0M No.25/23/66-Estt(A) dated 09.12.1966 (reproduced as G.l. decision No.2 below Rule 7 of CCS (Conduct) Rules, which inter-alia provides that under Rule 7 (ii) of rules ibid, a Government servant shall NOT resort to or in any way abet any form of strike in connection with any matter to his service or the service of any other Government employees. If any Government servant resorts to any action in violation of Rule 7 (ii) of CCS (Conduct) Rules, disciplinary action would have to be taken against him.

3. Attention is also invited to proviso to FR 17(I) according to which any employee(s) who is absent from duty without permission shall not be entitled to any pay and allowances during the period of absence. Further, unauthorized absence shall be deemed to cause an interruption or break in service Of the employee under FR 17(A).

4. In this regard, the following decisions of the Supreme Court may also be brought to the of the employees under your Ministry/Department. The Supreme Court has held in the Case Of T.K.Rangarajan Vs. Govt. of Tamil Nadu that no right exists with the Govt. employees to strike, whether fundamental, statutory or an equitable right. In All India Bank Employees Association Vs. National Industrial Tribunal & Ors„ (1962 (3) SCR 269) the Constition Bench of the Suprerne Court specifically held that even very liberal interpretation of sub-clause (C) of Clause (1) of Article 19 of the Constitution cannot lead to the conclusion that the trade unions have a guaranteed right to strike, either as part of collective bargaing or otherwise. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court also agreed that going on strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by Government Employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with law. Hence, once it is proved that an employee has committed the of going on a strike in any form, the Supreme Court has held in Bank of India vs. TS Kelawala [1990 (4) SLR 249] that he will have to face the consequences which may include deduction of wages and even dismissal from service.

5. In this context, it is clarified that strike means refusal of work or stoppage or slowing down of work by a group of employees acting in combination and includes:-

vii) mass abstention from work without permission which is wrongly described mass Casual Leave.

viii) refusal to work on overtime where such overtime work is necessary in public interest.

ix) resort to practice or conduct which is likely to result in or results in the cessation or substantial retardation of work in any organization. Such practice include what are ‘go-slow’, ‘sit-down’, “pen-down’, ‘stay-in’. ‘token’, ‘sympathetic’ or any other similar strike as also absence from work for participation in a ‘Bandh’ or similar movements.

6. Accordingly, Casual Leave or any other kind of leave, if applied for, should not be sanctioned to the officers and employees during the period of proposed One Day Strike on 16th March, 2017 and it should be ensured that the striking activities are not allowed inside and around the office premises. It may also be ensured that the employees, who intend to attend their office work despite the call for the strike, are not prevented from attending the office by the striking employees. Suitable contingency plan may be worked out for carrying out the various functions in field offices and Principal Accounts Offices.

7. The above instructions may be brought to the notice of staff working under your control. All the Pr. CCAs/CCAs/CAs are requested to deal with the cases in respect of employees, Who resort to action as above, in the light of above referred instructions.

8. This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
