Pension Revision Who are absorbed in Central Public Sector Undertakings – Confederation

EXTENDING THE BENEFIT OF PENSION REVISION TO THE EMPLOYEES AND OFFICERS WHO ARE ABSORBED IN THE CENTRAL PUBLIC SECTOR UNDERTAKINGS – LATEST POSITION

Department of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare has issued OM No. 38/37/2016 – P&PW (A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 regarding implementations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 pensioners and Family Pensioners etc. In para 7 (a) of aforesaid OM, it was mentioned that –

“Where the Government servants on permanent absorption in public sector undertakings/Autonomous bodies continue to draw pension separately from the government, the pension of such absorbes will be updated in terms of these orders. In cases where the Government servants have drawn one time lump-sum terminal benefits equal to 100% of their pensions and have become entitled to the restoration of one-third commuted portion of pension as per the instructions issued by this Department from time to time, their cases will not be covered by these orders. Orders for regulating pension of such pensioners will be issued separately.”

In the orders dated 10.09.2016 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 6048/2010 Shri K. Ganesan Vs Union of India, it was mentioned that —

“Having heard learned Counsel for the appellants, and having persued the record of the case, we find no justification whatsoever to interfere with the impugned order, directing restoration of 2/3rd in respect of the respondent herein, after expiry of the requisite period of commutations. The instant appeal is accordingly dismissed.”

In the same order dated 01.09.2016 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 6371 of 2010 Shri K. L. Dhall & Anr Vs Union of India, it is stated that –

“Heard Learned casual for the rival parties. In view of the dismissal of Civil Appeal No. 6048 of 2010 by us today (Union of India and another Vs K. Ganeshan (dead) By Lrd), this appeal has to be accepted. Accordingly, the instant appeal is allowed. The impugned order of the High Court is set aside. It is directed that the appellants shall be entitled for restoration of their 2/3rd Portion after the expiry of the requisite period of commutation.”

After consultation with Department of Expenditure and Department of Legal affairs, two Review Petitions have been filed by the Government in the Hon’ble Supreme Court vide Review Petitions No. 465/2017 and Review Petition 472/2017 against the order dated 01.03.2016 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 6048/2010 (Shri K. Ganesan Vs Union of India) and Civil Appeal No. 6371 of 2010 (Shri. K. L. Dhall & Anr Vs. Union of India). The Review petition came up for hearing in the Hon’ble Supreme Court on 22.03.2017. The Hon’ble Supreme Court has dismissed both the Review Petition vide order 22nd March 2017.

Government has now informed that since, the above orders dated 01.09.2010 of Hon’ble Supreme Court has a bearing on the question of revision of one-third restored pension of the absorbed pensioners, no orders for the revision of one-third pension in such cases could be issued so far. The matter would be examined in the light of dismissal of the Review Petitions mentioned above.

The undersigned is directed to enclose a copy of the minutes of the meeting of Committee of Secretaries (Doc. No. 23/2017-CA.III) held on 12th May, 2017 at 3:15 PM in the Committee Room of the Cabinet Secretariat, Rashtrapati Bhawan on the subject mentioned above.

2. It is requested that the status of action taken on the relevant decisions may kindly be uploaded in the ‘Committee of Secretaries’ module of e-Samiksha portal.

CABINET SECRETARIAT

Doc. No. 23/2017-CA.III

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF COMMITTEE OF SECRETARIES

Venue : Committee Room, Cabinet Secretariat Rashtrapati Bhavan
Date of meeting : 12.05.2017
Time of meeting : 3:15 PM

Sub: Consideration of the recommendations of the 3rd Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for Revision of Pay for Executives and Non-Unionized Supervisors in CPSEs – reg.

SECRET

Subject: Recommendations of 3rd PRC for revision of pay for Executives and non-unionized Supervisors in CPSEs.

A meeting of Committee of Secretaries on the above mentioned subject was chaired by Cabinet Secretary at 3.15 PM on 12.05.2017 in the Committee Room, Cabinet Secretariat, Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi.

2. Secretary, DPE made a presentation on the subject. The deliberations of COS on different recommendations of the 3rd PRC are discussed below.

3. Affordability

(i) Secretary, DPE apprised the COS about the recommendations of the 3rd PRC regarding ‘affordability clause’. She stated that broadly speaking, 3rd PRC had recommended that additional financial impact should be within 20% of average PBT of last 3 years preceding the year of implementation. Secretary, M/o Coal expressed the view that CIL and its subsidiaries may be considered as a single unit for the purpose of the “affordability clause” because the executives in CIL are recruited centrally and are transferrable from holding company to subsidiaries and vice versa.

He stated that this matter has already been considered and approved by Cabinet earlier at the time of implementation of 2007 pay revision. CoS was of the view that past precedent in respect of CIL may be taken into account for ‘affordability’.

(ii) Recommendation The recommendation of 3rd PRC regarding ‘affordability clause’ may be accepted. However, in case of ClL, the holding company and its subsidiaries would be considered as a single unit for the affordability clause as per past precedent.

4. Fitment benefit

(i) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC had recommended uniform fitment benefit of 15% of Basic Pay plus DA in case the financial impact of the pay revision is within 20% of the average PBT of last 3 years and part fitment slabs of 10% and 5°/o in case the financial impact is more than 20%. After detailed discussion, CoS was of the View that these recommendations were acceptable.

(ii) Recommendation The fitment benefit as recommended by 3rd PRC may be accepted.

5. Dearness Allowance, annual increment, promotion increment, stagnation increment and bunching of pay:

(i) Secretary, DPE apprised that 3″ PRC had recommended continuation of 100% DA neutralization. The annual increment and promotion increment were recommended at 30/0 of basic pay. The provisions regarding stagnation increment and bunching of pay in the situation where a lower fitment benefit (i.e. 10°/o or 5%) is granted due to affordability issues were brought out. There was consensus in the CoS that recommendations of 3rd PRC on these issues may be accepted.

(ii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendations regarding dearness allowance, annual, promotion and stagnation increments and bunching of pay may be accepted.

100% IDA Neutralization, Annual increment

The CoS has approved the 3% of basic pay for the purpose of annual increment and promotional increment. It also has given the nod for the 100% IDA neutralization for calculating the fitment benefit for existing employees. It means the IDA rate at the time of 31.12.2016 will be merged with the basic pay. Here is the formula for calculating the revised basic pay:

A B C D
(Revised
Basic Pay
w.e.f.
01.01.2017)
Basic Pay + Stagnation increment(s) as on 31.12.2016
(Personal Pay / Special Pay not to be included)
+
Industrial Dearness Allowance (IDA) as applicable on 1.1.2017
[under the IDA pattern computation methodology linked to All India Cumulative Price Index (AICPI) 2001=100 series]
+ 15% of (A+B) + Aggregate amount rounded off to the next Rs.10/-.

6. Pay Protection

(i) Secretary, DPE apprised that 3rd PRC had recommended that a Special Pay should be granted to accord pay protection to executives whose pay after promotion or selection to a Board level position exceeds the maximum of pay-scale of that post. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure stated that such a provision is not available in Central Government whereby pay could be fixed beyond the maximum of the scale of a post. Hence, the recommendation was not supported by D/o Expenditure. Secretary, DoPT mentioned that government servants are allowed pay only up to maximum of the scale/level of the post to which they are appointed. CoS observed that the 3rd PRC has recommended fairly wide pay bands along with up to three stagnation increments and therefore there is hardly any likelihood of stagnation in the event of promotion / selection of an executive to a higher post. Besides, taking into account the above views of DoPT and DoE the recommendation of 3rd PRC regarding pay protection may not be accepted.

(ii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendation regarding pay protection may not be accepted.

7. Pay scales

(i) Secretary, DPE explained that the 3rd PRC had recommended continuing with existing levels and number of pay scales linked to Scheduled classification of CPSEs. Thus, 3rd PRC had recommended revised pay scales corresponding to existing pay scales for each of the existing Grades.

(ii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendations regarding pay scales may be accepted.

Grade Existing Pay Scale Recommended Pay Scale Applicable Schedule of CPSE
E0 12600-32500 30000-120000 A, B, C, D
E1 16400-40500 40000-140000 A, B, C, D

Director 43200-66000 100000-260000 D
CMD 51300-73000 120000-280000 D

8. Perks and allowances

(i) Secretary, DPE informed that the 3rd PRC had recommended that Board of CPSEs may be empowered to provide up to a ceiling of 35% of Basic Pay towards perks and allowances under the concept of ‘Cafeteria Approach’. Further, 3rd PRC had recommended that the ceiling shall be partially linked to Industrial DA (IDA) in future whereby it would be enhanced by 25°/o whenever IDA rises by 50°/o. In addition, it was recommended that cost of infrastructure facilities should not be covered within the ceiling. As regards company-owned accommodation provided to executives, CPSEs would be able to bear Income Tax liability on the ‘non-monetary perquisite’ of which 50% shall be loaded within the ceiling of 35% on perks and allowances. It was pointed out by Secretary, DPE that at present, the ceiling for allowances under ‘Cafeteria Approach’ is not linked to IDA.

(ii) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC had also made recommendations in respect of certain allowances such as location based compensatory allowance, work based hardship duty allowance and project allowance which are outside the abovementioned ‘Cafeteria Approach’. In addition, it had also recommended that work related administrative expenditure and reimbursement of telephone/internet facility etc. may be allowed outside the ceiling on perks on allowances.

(iii) Secretary, MoCA stated that certain allowances in CPSEs under MoCA such as flying/engineering related allowances applicable to Air Traffic Controllers, Flying Crew etc. may be kept outside the ceiling of 35°/o in order to attract and retain talent. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure stated that 7th CPC has recommended hardship and location based allowances on slab basis and not as a percentage of pay. A decision on recommendations of 7th CPC pertaining to allowances of Central Government employees, many of which are closely related to the allowances of CPSE employees which are outside the ‘Cafeteria Approach’, is yet to be taken by Government. The matter was discussed in detail. It was suggested that a view on allowances which are analogous to those of Central Government employees may be taken after the latter are finalized.

(iv) Recommendation The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding allowances under ‘Cafeteria Approach’ up to a ceiling of 35% excluding the cost on infrastructure facilities and 50% of Income Tax liability on ‘non-monetary perquisite’ related to company owned accommodation may be accepted. Further, the recommendation of 3rd PRC regarding work related administrative expenditure and linkage of allowances under ‘Cafeteria Approach’ with IDA may not be accepted. However, decision regarding other allowances may be taken by DPE in consultation with M/o Finance separately after a decision is taken by Government on the allowances for Central Government employees. Till a decision is taken regarding the other allowances, the existing allowances in CPSEs at existing rates may continue to be paid on pre-revised pay.

9. Performance related pay (PRP)

(i) Secretary, DPE informed CoS that 3rd PRC had recommended that as in the past, PRP should be paid from 5% of profit accruing from core business activities. However, the ratio of relevant year’s profit to incremental profit for calculating PRP has been modified from 60:40 to 65:35. In addition to the existing provision for CPSE and individual Performance, provision has also been made for Team Performance. Thus CPSE Performance, Individual Performance and Team Performance have been given weightages of 50°/o, 20% and 30°/o respectively. Further, 3rd PRC has recommended certain changes in Grade Ceilings of PRP for Executives and discontinuation of forced rating of 10% executives as below par/poor performers.

(ii) Recommendation The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding PRP may be accepted.

10. Superannuation Benefits

(i) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC had recommended no change regarding superannuation benefits (i.e. PF, gratuity, post-retirement medical benefits and pension) for which the present ceiling of 30% of Basic Pay + DA had been retained. However, ceiling for gratuity has been raised to Rs. 20 lakh from the present Rs. 10 lakh with partial linkage to DA in line with that for Central Government employees. Further, it has been recommended that funding of gratuity beyond Rs. 10 lakh should be kept outside the ceiling of 30% of Basic Pay + DA. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure stated that the recommendation regarding funding of gratuity may be reexamined because gratuity per se is part of existing ceiling being a retirement benefit and hence it may not be appropriate to create two segments for gratuity. Moreover, there is no specific reason given for this recommendation by the 3rd PRC.

(ii) Recommendation The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding superannuation benefits may be accepted with the modification that funding for the entire amount of gratuity may be met from within the ceiling of 30% of Basic Pay DA.

11. Corpus for Medical and other emergency needs

(i) Secretary, DPE informed that 3″ PRC had recommended that the ceiling for contribution to the corpus for post-retirement medical benefits and other emergency needs for retirees may be enhanced from 1.5°/o of PBT to 3% of PBT. Further, coverage from the corpus may be extended to all retirees instead of the present provision for only pre 1.1.2007 retirees. CoS was of the view that the present ceiling of 1.5% of PBT is sufficient for covering the pre 1.1.2007 retirees. As regards remaining employees, provision for post-retirement medical benefit already exists as part of the stipulated contribution of 30% of Basic Pay + DA for superannuation benefits.

(ii) Recommendation The corpus for post-retirement medical benefits and other emergency needs may be provided for within the existing ceiling of 1.5% of PBT and it may apply only in respect of pre 1.1.2007 retirees. Formulation of suitable schemes in this regard by CPSEs may be ensured by the Administrative Ministries/Departments.

12. House Rent Allowance (HRA) and Leased Accommodation including House Rent Recovery (HRR)

(i) The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding rates of HRA, HRR and leased accommodation etc. were discussed. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure apprised that the recommendations of 7th CPC on HRA for Central Government employees was under consideration and a final view was yet to be taken. CoS was of the view that decision of the Government on the recommendations of the 7th CPC on allowances may be awaited.

(ii) Recommendation: A decision on 3rd PRC’s recommendations regarding HRA, HRR, leased accommodation etc. may be taken by DPE in consultation with Mo Finance along the lines of provisions for Central Government employees after a decision is taken by Government on HRA for Central Government employees. Till then, the existing allowances at the existing rates may continue to be paid at pre-revised pay scales.

13. Deputation, Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) VRSNSS and healthcare of employees.

(i) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC has recommended that deputation of employees from one CPSE to another may be allowed in which case the employee would be entitled to pay and allowances as applicable in the parent CPSE. In addition, deputation allowance would also be payable. Further, the same provision would also apply to government officials on deputation to CPSEs, i.e. they would be entitled to pay and allowances as applicable in their parent cadre together with deputation allowance. She further informed that as per extant guidelines, government officers could join posts in CPSEs only on immediate absorption basis except in certain posts. This policy also applies to employees of one CPSE joining other CPSEs regardless of the level of post involved. The executives, who are brought into holding companies from subsidiaries or vice versa on deputation/transfer, will continue to draw their basic pay as drawn in the original company. They will, however, be entitled to draw the allowances and variable pay/performance related pay as applicable to the borrowing CPSE. Secretary, DoPT was of the view that deputationists should have the option to choose between pay of parent cadre plus deputation allowance or pay of the ex-cadre post. Further, the deputationists should get the allowances and other non-pay benefits according to the rules of the borrowing organization.

(ii) Secretary, DPE apprised that the 3rd PRC had also made certain recommendations to improve the performance of CPSEs, inter alia, covering Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), VRSNSS, and healthcare of employees, etc. She stated that as regards ESOP, 3rd PRC had recommended that DPE may elaborate the mechanism in consultation with Government agencies concerned. This recommendation may be delinked from the processing of the other recommendations of 3rd PRC and may be examined separately. As regards VRSNSS, there are existing guidelines of DPE and recommendations of 3rd PRC on this issue would also need separate examination. Regarding modifications in respect of healthcare facilities for employees recommended by 3rd PRC, CoS observed that most of the CPSEs are already implementing various health schemes and therefore changes in this regard may not be necessary.

(iii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendations on deputation of officers between CPSEs and of Government officers to CPSEs may not be accepted and the existing guidelines of DPE and DoPT in this regard may continue to apply. As regards recommendations on ESOP and VRSNSS, these may also be examined separately by DPE. Further, modifications recommended by 3rd PRC in respect of healthcare facilities for employees may not be accepted and present provisions may continue in this regard.

14. After detailed deliberations, it was recommended that:

i. 3rd PRC’s recommendations may be accepted except to the extent of modifications recommended in Paras 3 (ii), 6 (ii), 8 (iv), 10 (ii), 11 (ii), 12 (ii) and 13 (iii) above.

ii. The recommendations of 3rd PRC may be implemented from 01.01.2017 (except for allowances as discussed in Paras 8 and 12 above, decision on which will be taken after the Government decision on allowances under 7th CPC)

Procedural actions for revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 retirees of Central Government in pursuance of the OM of Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare dated 12.5.2017

No.1(13)/EV/2017
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

New Delhi, the 23rd May, 2017

Office Memorandum

Subject: Procedural actions for revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 retirees of Central Government in pursuance of the OM of Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare dated 12.5.2017 – Regarding.

The Ministries/Departments of the Central Government are aware of the orders issued by Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare (DoP&PW) contained in their OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12.5.2017 regarding revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 retirees. In terms of para 4 thereof, the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s who retired/died prior to 1.1.2016 may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. The said OM further provides that this will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the formula for revision of pay. 50% of the notional pay as on 1.1.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016.

2. The Ministries/Departments are aware that actual implementation of the aforesaid order contained in the OM dated 12.5.2017 of the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare involves a procedure for revision of pension of such pensioners, which covers a number of agencies like the Heads of Departments/Heads of Offices, under whose administrative control a particular pensioner had worked before retirement/death, the concerned PAOs, pension accounting organizations like CPAO in case of civil pensioners and similar pension accounting organizations pertaining to pensioners in Ministries of Railways, Defence and Department of Posts, etc. Therefore, a coordinated action amongst these agencies is required to ensure that revision of pension in such cases is processed expeditiously.

3. Accordingly, while the substantive matter pertaining to revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 Central Government retirees concerns Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare as already provided in their aforesaid OM dated 12.5.2017 and any further substantive order thereon issued by them, there are certain procedural actions which need to be taken by the concerned administrative agencies in each Ministry/Department as well as the pension accounting organisations like the Central Pension Accounting Office under the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure; Controller General of Defence Accounts under the Ministry of Defence and similar pension accounting organisations under the Ministry of Railways and Department of Posts etc so that appropriate implementation of the orders of Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare as per their OM dated 12.5.2017 is carried out expeditiously.

4. In order, therefore, to put the procedural issues in this regard in perspective and to provide for coordinated action amongst the concerned agencies, the following procedural points of action are to be taken by the concerned agencies as brought out below:

(A) Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance

(i) The fitment tables for fixation of notional pay will be worked out by the Department of Expenditure and provided to Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare for appropriate guidelines for the purpose of issue of any further substantive order in the matter.

(B) Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare

(i) The appropriate guidelines/ instructions for revision of pension based on fitment tables for notional pay will be issued for use by the pension revising administrative authorities, PAOs and pension accounting organisations in the Central Government.

(C) Pension Accounting Authorities

(i) The Central Pension Accounting Office in case of civil pensioners and similar pension accounting offices in the Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Railways, Department of Posts etc., shall pass on the available and relevant data of live pensioners to the concerned PAOs by 31.05.2017, if such data is already available with them. This action will be completed within two weeks. In cases where the data is not available, the same will be obtained by the pension accounting offices from the disbursing banks and shall be passed on to the concerned PAOs. This action will be taken up simultaneously and completed within four weeks.

(ii) The pension accounting offices, while passing on the data to the concerned PAOs, may also devise a suitable mechanism for electronic revision, as far as possible, to enable PAOs to process the cases of pension revision expeditiously.

(iii) The central pension accounting offices like the CPAO, at the time of passing on the data to the concerned PAOs, shall send a few illustrative examples on pension revision in such cases to the pension disbursing Banks to enable them to consider suitable changes in the software, if necessary, for the purpose.

(D) Pay & Account Office (PAO)/Head of the Department.

(i) The concerned PAOs, on receiving data from the pension accounting organizations, shall immediately, and not later than 3 days from the receipt of data, pass on the data to the concerned administration/establishment Branches/Heads of the Office (HOO)s under various Heads of Department (HODs) of the Ministries/Departments. The HOOs will also check their records to ascertain the actual numbers of retirees.

(ii) The concerned administration/establishment branches/Heads of Offices (HOO) under various Heads of Departments (HODs) of the Ministries/Departments shall take action to revise the pension in case of retirees who had worked under their administrative control, based on the orders issued by the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare dated 12.5.2017 and any further order containing the fitment table providing for notional pay, after due verification of the relevant records.

(iii) In cases where records are readily available with the HoD/DDO, the action to process revision of pension shall be initiated forthwith and not later than 30 days from the date of receipt of the list of pensioners by the PAOs from the CPAO. In such cases, revised pension cases will be sent to the PAOs for further necessary action by the concerned administrative Branches/HOOs, which normally process the pension cases in case of employees under their administrative domain on their retirement/death.

(iv) In cases where records are not readily available, the concerned HOOs/HODs will ensure appropriate action for verification of such cases and ensure expeditious revision of pension as per the prescribed procedure and passing on the same to PAOs for further necessary action.

(v) On receipt of revised pension cases from the administrative/establishment branches, the PAOs shall take further appropriate action expeditiously and pass on the duly verified pension revision authorities to the pension accounting offices like the CPAO, which will in turn take further action to issue necessary instructions/authority to the disbursing Banks without delay.

(vi) Once the revised pension authority is received by the Banks, they will ensure timely payment of revised pension and arrears, if any, to the accounts of pensioners.

5. In order to ensure effective monitoring of the progress of pension revision based on the procedure outlined above, a monitoring mechanism will also be followed as brought out below:

(i) DOP&PW will periodically monitor the Ministry-wise progress of pension revision. For this purpose, Ministry-wise details would be made available by the respective pension accounting organisations, viz, CPAO, CGDA, etc, to the Department of P&PW.

(ii) The progress of pension revision at the HOD/HOO level will be monitored by the concerned JS(Admn) of the Ministry/Department on a weekly basis. This will be included as one agenda in the Senior Officers Meetings (5OM) in each Ministry/Department.

(iii) CPAO and similar pension accounting organisations shall place online a dashboard of the progress of revision of pension cases with PAOs, CCAs, nodal authorities of Ministries/Departments and Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare.

(iv) In order to ensure timely action on the part of Chief Controller of Accounts/Controller of Accounts/PAOs and Pension Accounting Organisations, a weekly progress meeting shall be held at the level of Chief Controller of Pension and this shall be monitored on monthly basis by Controller General of Accounts, CGDA and similar levels in the Ministry of Railways, Department of Posts, etc.

Cabinet approves Pan India implementation of Maternity Benefit Program

Cabinet approves Pan India implementation of Maternity Benefit Program

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given ex-post facto approval to Pan-India implementation of Maternity Benefit Program which now has been extended to all districts of the country w.e.f. 01.01.2017. The Prime Minister in his address to the nation on 31.12.2016 had announced Pan-India implementation of Maternity Benefit Program.

The Maternity Benefit Program will provide compensation for the wage loss in terms of cash incentives so that the women can take adequate rest before and after delivery and not be deprived of proper nutrition.

The total cost of the proposal for the period from 01.01.2017 to 31.03.2020 including Central and State Government share isRs.12,661crore. Government of India’s share during the period 01.01.2017 to 31.03.2020 comes to around Rs. 7932 crore.

Objective of the Scheme

  1.         To provide partial compensation for the wage loss in terms of cash incentives so that the woman can take adequate rest before and after delivery of the first living child.
  2.       The cash incentives provided would lead to improved health seeking behaviour amongst the Pregnant Women and Lactating Mother (PW&LM) to reduce the effects of under-nutrition namely stunting, wasting and other related problems.

 Target Group

All eligible Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers (PW&LM), excluding the Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers who are in regular employment with the Central Government or State Government or Public Sector Undertakings or those who are in receipt of similar benefits under any law for the time being. It has been decided to give the benefit of Rs.5000/- to PW&LM in three installment for the birth of the first live child by MWCD and the remaining cash incentive as per approved norms towards Maternity Benefit under existing programmes after institutional delivery so that on an average, a woman will get Rs.6000/-.

Conditions and installments

Pregnant Women and Lactating Mothers who are eligible will receive a cash benefit of Rs.5,000/- in three installment at the following stages as specified in the table given below:

Cash Transfer Conditions Amount(in Rs.)
First installment ·   Early Registration of Pregnancy. 1,000/-
Second installment ·   Received at least one antenatal Check-up (after 6 months of pregnancy) 2,000/-
Third installment ·   Child birth is registered.·   Child has received first cycle of BCG, OPV, DPT and Hepatitis-B or its equivalent/substitute.     2,000/-

The eligible beneficiaries would continue to receive the remaining cash incentive as per approved norms towards Maternity Benefit under existing programmes after institutional delivery so that on an average, a woman will get Rs. 6000/-.

Mode of cash transfer to the Beneficiaries

The conditional cash transfer scheme would be in DBT mode.

Background:

The Government of India is committed to ensure that every woman gets adequate support and health care during pregnancy and at the time of delivery and every newborn is immunized on time which is the foundation for better health of the mother and the newborn. Normally, the first pregnancy of a woman exposes her to new kinds of challenges and stress factors. Hence, the scheme intends to provide support to the mother for safe delivery and immunization of her first living child. The improved health care seeking behaviour of the PW&LM would lead to better health status for the mother and the child.

Sub:  Cabinet decision on 3rd May 2017 related 7th CPC – Reg. Another gimmick by the Modi Government

Dear Comrades,

A press communique was issued by Ministry of Finance on 3rd May 2017 with a caption “Cabinet approves modification in the 7th CPC recommendations on pay and pensionary benefits.” Copy of the said communique is attached.

But in the said communique nowhere it was mentioned about any modifications in the recommendations on pay. It contains only two subjects, Revision of pensioners of pre – 2016 pensioners and family pensioners and Disability Pension for Defence Pensioners. The communique is left with half information with regards to pre 2016 pensioners as it was not clarified how the pension is going to regulate.

The attempt of the Government is to create confusion among the Central Government Employees in general and the Public at large, as the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has been announced its next course of action to hold dharna in front of the house of Finance Minister Arun Jaitely’s New Delhi on 23rd May 2017.

We can also expect statements from the so called NJCA leadership to congratulate the Government and may even claim because of their effort only the Cabinet too decision on pre – 2016 pensioners (or inaction?).

Beware of such leaders and the Government’s attitude and ensure grand success of the Dharna on 23rd May 2017 at Delhi and in all units as per the call from Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers. Be ready for Dharna

With fraternal Greetings

Comradely yours

Central Government officers Group A and Bank officers salary comparision from 1992 to 2016

An important point to note

Of and on it comes for discussions while salary of Central Govt employees gets revised at 10 years interval, Bank employees’ salary is being revised at 5 years interval. Let us analyse, as under, that despite salary revision at 5 years interval how salary of Bank officers is lagging behind during last 23 years duration in comparison to salary of Central Govt Officers Group- A at entry level onwards. Please also note that 7th Pay Commission has recommended that without waiting for next pay commission the salary should be revised based on the material given by Simla based Labour Bureau.

From the above table it is evident as under:

  • From 11.1992 to 01.01.2016 the salary of Central Govt Group A officers has been increased by 1293.44% (56100-4026=52074/4026 X 100) at entry level.
  • From 11.1992 to 01.01.2016 the salary of Bank officers has been increased by 708.81% (35701-4414=31287/4414 X 100) at entry level.

Moreover the 7th Pay Commission has recommended that there is no need for a commission once in 10 years. It has recommended that based on the Labour Bureau reports the increase can be done periodically.

Salary in Reserve Bank of India

  • In case of RBI officers, the starting basic pay which was Rs 17100 has been increased to Rs 28150 and at entry They also get a local allowance of 5% of pay, family allowance of 4% of Pay, Grade allowance of Rs.6000 and a special allowance of Rs.6000(Rs 1625 for those who joined in 2016) which is eligible for DA. So their salary structure is much superior to other bank officers.
