Pensioners to supervise government jobs recruitment exams

Pensioners to supervise government jobs recruitment exams

New Delhi: In a first, the Centre has decided to rope in pensioners to supervise government jobs recruitment exams conducted by Staff Selection Commission(SSC)

The SSC, which conducts examinations to select hundreds of candidates for various mid-level central government jobs, has written to Personnel Ministry in this regard.

The retired central government employees will be engaged as Inspecting Officers and members of the flying squad for conducting and supervising of examinations at various places, according to a note by the ministry.

The SSC has also sought a list of pensioners from the ministry to choose appropriate candidates, it said.

The Commission is one of the largest recruiting agencies in the country mandated to conduct eight exams.

There are about 58 lakh central government pensioners.

The Personnel Ministry already maintains a repository of pensioners in an online initiative called Sankalp, which provides a platform for the pensioners to access opportunities available for useful interventions in the society.

It also facilitates the organisations working in these areas to select appropriate skill and expertise from the available pool of volunteers.

There are 1,815 pensioners registered with the Sankalp. The ministry wants all pensioners to get themselves registered on this platform.

Over two lakh new central government jobs by 2017

Over two lakh new central government jobs by 2017

In a good news for people seeking government jobs, over two lakh posts are estimated to be created by the Central government in its various departments.

The Central government has projected in the budget estimates for 2016-17 an increase of about 2.18 lakh in the existing workforce of 33.05 lakh, as in 2015, by 2017.

The Home Ministry will add 5,635 new jobs to take its strength to 22,006 in 2017. Similarly, there will be 47,264 new posts in police departments to take its total to 10,75, 341 in 2017 from 10,28,077 (its strength in 2015), it said.

There will be increase of 10,894 in staff strength of the Defence Ministry to take the manpower count to 51,084 in 2017, according to the budget estimates presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh today said the projection has been made after due consideration and keeping in mind the futuristic vision of the government.

“The government, wherever required, takes into consideration creation of new posts. The budget estimates on the strength of Central government establishments will help provide good governance,” he told PTI.

The Civil Aviation Ministry will have 1,080 more posts to reach a total of 2,140 by 2017. The Ministry’s staff strength as in 2015 is 1,060, according to the budget estimates.

Similarly, the Department of Atomic Energy will add 6,353 new jobs to take the total of manpower to 38,025. There will be an estimated increase of 2,072 posts in 2017 in the External Affairs Ministry as against the actual strength of 8,913 in 2015, it said.

Mines Ministry will have 4399 new jobs by 2017. The staff strength of the ministry is 8,503, as in 2015. Similarly, the Personnel Ministry will see a jump of 1,796 new posts from 8,568 in 2015, as per the budget estimates.

The Cabinet Secretariat has already asked all ministries to mention “employment generation potential” in each scheme while seeking approval of the Union Cabinet and its Committees.

Similarly, all proposals seeking approval of appraisal bodies like Foreign Investment Promotion Board and Core Group on Disinvestment need to mandatorily mention employment generation potential, the Cabinet Secretariat has said.

Government to recruit 2.2 lakh central government employees in two years

Central government is set to recruit 2.2 lakh central government employees over a period of two years from March 1, 2015, despite the Centre’s announcements from time to time on a freeze in fresh recruitments.

The central government’s actual staff on March 1, 2015 was 33.05 lakh, which increased to 34.93 lakh in 2016 and is estimated to grow to 35.23 lakh by March 1, 2017, according to the budget estimates for 2016-17.

This includes the railways — which has not added a single worker to its strength of 13,26,437 in the last three years — but excludes the defence forces.

The biggest increase of 70,000 is projected in the revenue department which comprises income tax and customs, central excise and service tax, followed by central paramilitary forces, projected to rise by 47,000. The strength of the home ministry, excluding paramilitary forces, has increased by 6,000.

The cabinet secretariat, a fairly small department assisting the government, will add 301 employees, going up from 900 in 2015 to 1,201 by March 1, 2017. The I&B ministry added nearly 2,200 personnel in the last two years.

The personnel ministry, which manages government staff, added 1,800 jobs in the last two years, the urban development ministry 6,000, mines ministry 4,399 and department of space 1,000.

However, the financial allocation for salaries and allowances for the revenue department has not shown any major difference, for the reason that the department has not been able to recruit personnel due to slow progress in the cadre restructuring exercise.

Some departments have faced downsizing. Interestingly, there has been a cut in the department of rural development, the focus area of the government, where the strength has come down from 538 in 2015 to 472 in 2016-17.

A major reason for the spurt in hiring is that many departments faced acute staff crunch in Group B and C categories due to a moratorium on fresh recruitments for the past several years.

A lot of the new appointments have been in these categories. Vacancies have piled up over the years. More than six lakh posts are vacant in various central government ministries, according to the personnel ministry.

Government job aspirants may not have to give non-creamy layer proof

Government job aspirants may not have to give non-creamy layer proof

There may be no need for production of multiple non-creamy layer certificates for candidates belonging to Other Backward Class (OBC) seeking reservation in government jobs and instead they can provide self-attested photocopy of such documents, as per new rules being considered by the Centre.

Every candidate seeking reservation in central government posts and services as OBC candidate is required to submit a certificate confirming his or her status and also produce non-creamy layer status certificate.

“The appointing authorities would accept production of self-attested photo copy of the non-creamy layer certificate, subject to verification of the original non-creamy layer certificate, as is the practice being followed for verification of other original documents,” the Personnel Ministry has proposed.

It has sought comments from the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Department of Higher Education, Union Public Service Commission and Staff Selection Commission on this proposal.

It has also sought feedback on a new format for issue of non-creamy layer certificate suggested by National Commission of Backward Classes.

The non-creamy layer certificate would be applicable to OBC candidates who are covered under income or wealth test criterion. The income limit is decided on the basis of income earned during three previous financial years preceding the year of appointment, the Personnel Ministry has said.

To illustrate, the validity of non-creamy layer certificate issued during any month of the financial year 2016-17 covering three preceding financial years is accepted by the authorities concerned for any appointments or recruitments which would be valid during the period April 2016 to March 2017, it has proposed.

No interviews for government jobs from Jan 1; skill test may continue: DoPT

No interviews for government jobs from Jan 1; skill test may continue: DoPT

New Delhi: All central government ministries and their Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) were today told to dispense with the requirement of interviews for selections at junior level posts within next two days, however, they may continue with skill or physical test.

The timeliness set regarding completing the process of the discontinuation of interview by December 31, 2015 has to be adhered to strictly, a communique sent by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to secretaries of all central government ministries said.

From January 1, 2016, there will be no recruitment with interview at the junior level posts in government of India ministries, departments, attached and subordinate offices, autonomous bodies and PSUs.

“All the advertisement for future vacancies will be without the interview as part of the recruitment process,” said today’s Office Memorandum No.39020/01/2013-Estt (B)-Part.

The decision to discontinue interview for recruitments is for all Group C and non-gazetted posts of Group ‘B’ category and all such equivalent posts, the DoPT said.

“It is also clarified that as skill test or physical test is different from interview, they may continue. However, these tests will only be of qualifying nature. Assessment will not be done on the basis of marks for such tests,” it said.

In case of specific posts where the ministry or department wants to continue undertaking interview as a process of recruitment, a detailed proposal seeking exemption will have to be sent to the DoPT with the approval of the minister or minister-in-charge.

The ministries have been asked to send a consolidated report to the DoPT by January 7 in this regard.

“Report so to be furnished with the approval of the minister or minister-in-charge shall include the details of the name and number of posts where the interview is discontinued and posts for which the exemption has been sought within the purview of the administrative ministries or departments,” the order said.

Similarly, the Department of Public enterprises has also asked all ministries to advise PSUs under their administrative control to adopt a revised mechanism of recruitment for the non-executive level posts by dispensing with the practice of interview.

No more affidavits, interviews for central government jobs

No more affidavits, interviews for central government jobs

New Delhi: Path-breaking initiatives like discontinuation of affidavits for host of central government services and ending job interviews for various posts from January 1 among other initiatives kept the Ministry of Personnel in news during 2015.

“The most revolutionary and path-breaking decision is abolition of attestation of certificates by gazetted officers instead promoting self-attestation,” Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh told PTI.

He said the government took this decision as it was willing to trust citizens, more importantly it’s youth who will not give wrong information while submitting self-attested documents.

This decision has come as a big relief to common people, especially those living in rural areas, who had to take lot of pain in getting documents attested.

The Ministry also recently discontinued the practice of submission of affidavit by the family members of deceased government employees for the appointment on compassionate grounds.

Now people are required to submit self-declaration at the time of applying for compassionate appointment. All states and union territories have also been asked by the Centre to do away with practice of getting gazetted officer-signed affidavit and seek self-attestation.

Singh, a Lok Sabha member from Jammu and Kashmir’s Udhampur constituency, said soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to end interviews from central government jobs, his Ministry has acted on it.

“We have decided that from January 1, next year, the process of interview for Group C and D recruitments will be abolished,” he said, adding that these are some steps which nobody thought of in past over 60 years after country’s independence.
Singh said the Ministry which is held by the Prime

Minister started several measures to increase transparency and simplify governance.

“We have started the process of simplification of various application forms being used in the government. We are converting multi-page application forms into one-page,” the Minister said.

Talking about other initiatives, he said a pension portal has been started. “Those who are getting superannuated can check the status of their pension online. They can also check pension payment orders online,” Singh said.

He said out of 6.5 lakh public grievances received by his ministry during the year, 4.8 lakh were disposed of.

“The ministry will continue to work towards simplifying governance,” Singh said.

In another novel initiative, the ministry started yoga camps for the central government employees and their dependents.

Besides, it exempted the parents of differently-abled children from the mandatory transfers so that they can take proper care of them.

The scheme of interaction of officers with school students has been launched in which the officers of government of India visit schools and share their experiences with the students.

As a pilot project, senior officers of Department of Personnel and Training have visited kendriya vidyalayas in Delhi and interacted with the students.

For the first time in the history of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), the officers of 2013 batch were posted as assistant secretary in the Central Secretariat for a period of three months.

In order to crack a whip on non-performing bureaucrats, it has started assessing the performance of employees. The government has asked all its departments to identify such public servants and move proposals for their premature retirement.

The Personnel Ministry has formed rules to check unauthorised stay on foreign postings by IAS, IPS and IFS officers.

Less than 12% OBCs in central government jobs out of 27% quota: RTI

Less than 12% OBCs in central government jobs out of 27% quota: RTI

Chennai: More than two decades after implementation of Mandal commission report, which mandates 27 percent reservation for OBCs in central government jobs, an RTI data shows that less than 12 percent of employees of central government ministries, departments and statutory bodies are from other backward classes (OBCs) as on January 1, 2015.

What’s more, 40 ministries, including social justice and 48 departments held back the information sought by Chennai based scientist E Muralidharan under the Right to Information Act. Among the departments that have not provided any information is ministry of human resources, which is a major employer of group A employees like professors in IITs and other central educational institutions.

Going by the data available, under the group A, B,C and D category of employees, out of 79,483 posts, there are only 9,040 OBC staff.

Surprisingly, data provided by the department of personnel and training, which was the recipient of the RTI appeal and is responsible for the appointments, itself fares poorly in this regard, with 12.91 percent Scheduled Castes (SC), 4 percent Scheduled Tribes (ST) and 6.67 percent OBC forming the pool of employees under the reservation laws. The total number of personnel in the department is 6,879.

This means that a significant number of posts which have been allocated for these communities are yet to be filled, which raises questions on the effective implementation of the Mandal committee recommendations, Muralidharan said.

A closer look at the data indicates that there is not a single OBC Grade A officer in the President’s secretariat; less than 9 percent of the 651 Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) staff is from the OBC category. The higher education department employs only 5 percent OBC in Grade A officers and 10 percent OBC staff. Out of 41 Grade A posts in the department of scientific and industrial research, there is only one OBC officer.

Muralidharan has repeatedly filed RTIs every year to check the performance of the central government in appointments under reserved categories. “The departments are supposed to release the data, but they have been found wanting,” he said.

In the RTI query, Muralidharan asked what action was initiated against ministries and departments which did not provide the data. The under-secretary of the department of personnel and training, Raju Saraswat replied that two reminders were sent to the departments concerned, but he failed to state if any action was taken.

Muralidharan said that it was mandatory for the departments and ministries to furnish these details to DoPT by January 1 every year as per an office memorandum (OM No. No.43011/10/2002-Estt (Res.), dated December 19, 2003.

He pointed out that the poor implementation of caste-based reservations would result in the wedge of inequality increasing. “Reservations should be time-bound and there must be a of the positions filled,” he said.

7th Pay Commission: Private sector employees want similar hikes

7th Pay Commission: Private sector employees want similar hikes

New Delhi: Following the 7th Pay Commission report, there is a significant discontent among private sector employees, and employers are dealing with lowered motivation and performance levels, says a survey.

According to a TimesJobs.Com survey, over 70 per cent private sector employees regret working in the private sector after central government employees bag 23.55 per cent salary hike.

“The discontent caused in the private sector by this performance-indiscriminate hike to central government employees is palpable. And India Inc employers are having to face the brunt of this dissatisfaction with lowered motivation and performance levels,” TimesJobs.Com COO Vivek Madhukar said.

A large majority of respondents (68 per cent) felt that this hike was “unfair”. Another 47 per cent respondents believe the raise has no linkage to employee performance while 30 per cent feel the massive hike will eventually widen the public and private sector income disparity.

While the disappointment with private sector pay scales was high across experience levels, entry-level employees were the most disappointed.

About 80 per cent junior/entry-level employees said they regretted having taken up jobs in the private sector, reveals the survey. Nearly 75 per cent middle and senior-level employees also shared similar sentiments.

“All (100 per cent) the professionals surveyed said private sector companies should increase minimum wages like the central government,” the survey noted.

However, most private sector employees agreed that their jobs offered them more room for career growth. Close to 80 per cent employees think private sector jobs score better over government jobs given the opportunities for growth and job change.

The survey covered over 700 professionals working in the private sector from across the country, who earn their increments based on their individual performance and contributions to the business. It had representation from employees from across sectors and experience levels.
