D.O. No.4-177/2015-DL
01.5.2018

Dear Madam

This Ministry has been receiving many complaints about PSUs not recognising degrees/diplomas acquired in Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode from UGC recognised Universities for the purpose of employment.

2. In this regard, it is mentioned that Government of India has consistently maintained that degree acquired through ODL mode are valid for employment in Govt. and PSUs. A copy of MHRD Gazette Notification is attached. The University Grants Commission has also issued guidelines/ circular/ public notices from time to time in past for awareness of general public and others on the recognition / equivalency of the 001. degrees with the degrees acquired from regular universities. In this regard, UGC has issued a Public Notice dated 23rd February, 2018.

3. However, for the programmes for which AICTE is the regulator, its approval for ODL courses is necessary. In brief, AICTE does not recognize ODL degrees in subject areas other than management and information technology. But for all other non-professional courses/degrees acquired by individuals from the UGC recognised ODL programmes are valid degrees for appointment to post and services in the Central Government & PSUs.

4. In view of above, I would therefore, request you to kindly issue the necessary instructions to all the Central PSUs and Public Enterprises to take cognizance of the various notifications / circulars / public notices of MHRD and UGC regarding the recognition of ODL mode degrees for the purpose of employment.

With regards,

Encl: As above

Yours sincerely,

World Bank approves Rs. 6,000 crore Atal Bhujal Yojana

Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation

World Bank approves Rs. 6,000 crore Atal Bhujal Yojana

06 JUN 2018

The World Bank has approved Atal Bhujal Yojana (ABHY), a Rs.6000 crore Central Sector Scheme of the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation. The scheme is to be implemented over a period of five years from 2018-19 to 2022-23, with World Bank assistance. The scheme proposal has already been recommended by the Expenditure Finance Committee and the Ministry will be seeking Cabinet approval for the project shortly.

Atal Bhujal Yojana has been formulated by the Ministry to address the criticality of ground water resources in a major part of the country. The scheme aims to improve ground water management in priority areas in the country through community participation. The priority areas identified under the scheme fall in the states of Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. These States represent about 25% of the total number of over-exploited, critical and semi-critical blocks in terms of ground water in India. They also cover two major types of groundwater systems found in India – alluvial and hard rock aquifers- and have varying degrees of institutional readiness and experience in groundwater management.

Funds under the scheme will be provided to the states for strengthening the institutions responsible for ground water governance, as well as for encouraging community involvement for improving ground water management to foster behavioural changes that promote conservation and efficient use of water. The scheme will also facilitate convergence of ongoing Government schemes in the states by incentivizing their focussed implementation in identified priority areas. Implementation of the scheme is expected to benefit nearly 8350 Gram Panchayats in 78 districts in these states. Funds under the scheme will be made available to the participating states as Grants.

Ensuring active community participation in groundwater management is among the major objectives of the scheme. The scheme envisages active participation of the communities in various activities such as formation of Water User Associations, monitoring and disseminating ground water data, water budgeting, preparation and implementation of Gram-Panchayat wise water security plans and IEC activities related to sustainable ground water management. Community participation is also expected to facilitate bottom-up groundwater planning process to improve the effectiveness of public financing and align implementation of various government programs on groundwater in the participating s0tates.

The implementation of the scheme is expected to have several positive outcomes like better understanding of the ground water regime, focused and integrated community based approach for addressing issues related to ground water depletion, sustainable ground water management through convergence of on-going and new schemes, adoption of efficient water use practices to reduce ground water use for irrigation and augmentation of ground water resources in targeted areas.

Clarification on abolition of posts lying vacant for more than five years: Confederation

Clarification on abolition of posts lying vacant for more than five years: Confederation

No.772655/E.Coord.I/18
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

North Block. New Delhi
Dated 23rd May, 2018

To
Shri M. Krishnan, General Secretary & Member
Standing Committee National Council, JCM
1st Floor, North Avenue,’Po’ Building, New Delhi-110001

Sub: Forwarding of Representation/Petition-regarding abolition of posts lying vacant for more than five years.

Sir,
I am directed to refer to your representation dated 26th March, 2018 addressed to Hon’ble Prime Minister and a similar reference separately addressed to Hon’ble Finance Minister on the above mentioned subject.

2. The matter has been examined keeping in mind the submissions made by you in respect of this Department’s O.M. dated 16.01.2018. It appears that the above issue has been raised in view of this Department’s instructions dated 12.04.2017. This Department had issued compendium of instructions with the approval of Competent Authority in supersession of all previous instructions/orders regarding creation, continuation, transfer and revival of posts. In this regard, it is seen that while issuing the compendium of instructions, some changes in the timelines have been made to ease and speed up the procedure for revival of posts under “deemed-abolished category”. The changes made in the recent order is tabulated below:

Sl. No. Prior to 12.04.2017 Order After 12.04.2017 Order
1 The period of live post lying vacant had been one year since its creation. Now, the post would fall under deemed-abolished category after a period of two years. The newly created posts, which do not have RRs would fall under the category of ‘deemed-abolished’ after a period of 3 years.
2 Physical files were received for creation/ continuation/ revival/ transfer of posts. Now, the procedure for revival/continuation of posts under deemed-abolition has been made through e-office cutting down the processing time.
3 The guidelines/instructions for creation/ revival/ continuation/ transfer of posts were in a scattered manner. A compendium of instructions has been issued to deal with the creation/ revival/ continuation/ transfer of posts.
4 This Department had been receiving proposals for the posts which have been lying vacant even for more than 20-30 years. Due to this inordinate delay, this Department has issued order for revival of posts with stipulated conditions. The posts can be got revived from Department of Expenditure subject to fulfilling of stipulated conditions.

3. In view of the above, it is felt that this Department vide its consolidated instructions/guidelines dated 12.04.2017 had directed all the Ministries/Departments to abolish all the posts which are lying vacant for more than five years. Since most of the instructions were issued long time back and in a scattered manner, it became imperative for this Department to issue a compendium of instructions covering all the aspects relating to creation/revival/continuation/transfer of posts. It is seen that while issuing the instructions, this Department has also increased the period of live posts from one year to two/three years and, now, the post would fall under deemed-abolished category after a period of two years. The newly created posts, which do not have RRs would fall under the category of ‘deemed-abolished’ after a period of 3 years. These posts can be got revived subject to fulfilment of stipulated conditions. This Department has also cutting down the processing time by directing all the Ministries/Departments to submit their proposal in e-office mode. In addition, if a post, which had been lying vacant for more than five years and could not be agreed for revival by this Department, but is considered to be essential for smooth functioning by AM for which sincere efforts were made to fill it up by AM, a fresh proposal for creation of post containing full functional justification with the concurrence of the competent authority may be referred to this  Department.

5. I hope the above clarifies the position in the matter.

Yours faithfully,
Sd/-

Under Secretary to the Govt. of India

Subject : Fixation of pay in the merged Pay Scale of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs.5500-9000 with Rs.6500-10500 (5th CPC) in 6th CPC Pay Band-2 + Grade Pay Rs.4200/-

Reference: Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Minutes of the National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012 circulated vide DOP&T OM F.No. 11/2/2008-JCA dated 13th September, 2012.

Sir,
Kindly refer to Para No. 8.1 of the Minutes of the Meeting of the 6th CPC National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012. This is with regard to Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 i.e. fixation of pay in revised Pay Scale. The Staff Side in the meeting has reiterated their demand that the pay in the incumbents holding the merged Pay Scale of Rs. 5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 should have been fixed by applying the multiplication factor of 1.86 at Rs. 6500 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 implying thereby that the commencement point of the Pay Band-2 should be at Rs. 12090/- based on 6500 x 1.863 = 12090 instead of Rs. 9300/- computed by multiplying Rs. 5000 x 1.86. The Official Side has rejected the demand of the Staff Side and after discussion it was decided that on this issue a disagreement may have to be recorded for referring the same to arbitration. Even though it is more than 5 years after the above decision we are not aware that what action has been taken to implement the decision taken in the National Anomaly Committee Meeting.

In this situation the affected Central Government Employees working in different Ministries have approached Court of Law for getting justice. Recently the CAT Ernakulum Bench in its Order OA No. 180/00569/2014 delivered on 03rd of April, 2018 has upheld the demand of the Staff Side and has given the following direction to the Government of India. The relevant portion of the Judgment is given below for your kind information.

14. It has to be borne in mind that CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 is a Rule notified under the proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India made by the President and hence it has a statutory status in the eye of law. Therefore, any interpretation of the provisions in the said Rules has to be in terms of the Rules itself. Any O.M. issued by way of clarification, explanation or prescribing the modalities for fixation of initial pay of the Government Employees as per the revised pay structure can be only in terms of what is stated in the Rules.

15. As observed above, going by the definitions of the terms ‘existing basic pay’ and ‘existing scale’ in the CDS (RP) Rules, 2008, Rule 7 fixation can be only in accordance with the afore-mentioned definitions of ‘existing basic pay’ and ‘existing scale’ only and not by way of administrative O.Ms and instructions contained in Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. Therefore, we are inclined to quash and set aside Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. We do so. We hold that the applicants are entitled to the declaration as prayed for and that the respondents should be directed to fix the initial pay of the applicants including all the members of Applicant No. 1 association in the revised pay structure by fixing their salary in the revised pay scale of Rs. 6500-10500 treating Rs. 6500/- as the existing basic pay as on 01.01.2006 with all consequential benefits. We order accordingly. This order shall be complied within 3 months from the date of receipt of copy of this order.”

In view of the above Judgement it is requested that without further prolonging the matter the above Judgment may be implemented by issuing a general instructions extending the benefit to all the similarly place Employees.

Awaiting for your favourable response please.

Thanking you,

Yours Faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary

CCAs/CCAs/CAs (Independent Charge) are, therefore, advised to consult their accredited banks in this regard and if any delay is foreseen in disbursement of salary on 31st May 2018 by the accredited banks, due to strike, necessary instructions may be issued to all the field PAOs/DDOs to upload salary payment files of Central Government Employees with NPB date as 29th May 2018 (last working day for bank, if strike materializes), and ensure that same reaches the banks latest by 25th May 2018.

3. This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.

Selfies can’t be used as photographs in pension forms for retiring central government employees

Selfies can’t be used as photographs in pension forms for retiring central government employees

No selfies please, this is a pension form, govt tells retiring employees

Selfies can’t be used as photographs in pension forms, the personnel ministry has told central government employees readying for retirement.

pension forms for retiring central government employees

Issuing a fresh set of dos and don’ts for civil pensioners, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has also ruled out photographs with coloured and dark glasses and long hair covering the eyes.

Do not paste/upload black and white photographs. Dimensions of photographs and signature should not be smaller that the box provided in the application form. Photograph should not be in the form of selfie, it said in its recent directive.

Central government civil pensioners are required to submit three copies of a joint photograph (or separate photographs) with their wives or husbands (duly attested by head of office) along with form 5 of the Central Civil Service Pension Rules 1972 for affixing on a payment pension order.

A government servant must get the form, which has fields to fill in personal details, from the head of office eight months before the date of his or her retirement.

According to the ministry, a photograph with a dark background or in uniform, or with eyes hidden under coloured or dark glasses will not be accepted. Photograph in computer print will not be accepted, it said.

The photograph is not to be signed and the eyes must not be covered by hair, the ministry said.

Glares on eyeglasses should be avoided with a slight upward or downward tilt of the head, it said.

The ministry has issued the fresh set of guidelines to all central government departments.

The purpose behind issuing these guidelines is to ensure prompt disposal of pension cases so that retired government employees do not have to wait for long to get their pension, a senior ministry official said.

There are about 48.41 lakh central government employees and 61.17 lakh pensioners.

IBA : Medical Insurance Scheme – constitution of committee

IBA : Medical Insurance Scheme – constitution of committee

INDIAN BANKs’ ASSOCIATION

HR & INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS

No.HR&IR/SKK/Medical Ins/2018-19/5041

May 8, 2018

Shri Sanjev K.Bandish,Convenor,UFBU
United Forum of Bank Unions,
C/o State Bank of India,LHO,Plot no.1, Sector -17A
Chandigarh – 1600017

Dear Sir,
Medical Insurance Scheme – constitution of committee

Please refer to our earlier communication in the subject matter and discussions held on 5th May,2018 with the Negotiating Committee. As desired , we place below the four suggested options:

i. Banks may go back to the earlier Hospitalization Expenses reimbursement Scheme as was in vogue till 9th Bi-partite settlement for employees and dependent family members.

ii. Directly deal with united India Insurance Co.Ltd or any other Insurance Company by calling quotes, without any interference from Broker.

iii. Advise banks to decide on the course of Medical Insurance Scheme on their own. Each Bank can negotiate with Insurance Companies to provide a Scheme tailor made to the requirement of the same.

iv. Continue with the process of appointing two or more brokers to help in assisting the IBA member banks to get a suitable Scheme prepared after getting the best quote as the nuances and fine print of the Insurance Policy and its features & interpretation will not be known to most employees & IBA in the absence of a broker.

2.In this context, as suggested by you, we would like to hold a meeting at our stadium House Office on 11.5.2018 at 11.00am to have fruitful deliberation for further course of action regarding Medical Insurance Scheme. You are therefore requested to kindly make it convenient to depute four representatives (two from officers Associations & two from Workmen Unions) to attend the meeting & share the views of the unions & Associations so that the matter may be concluded well in time before renewal.

3.A line of confirmation will be highly appreciated in this regard.

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
S K Kakkar,
senior Advisor (HR&IR)

Reference: Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Minutes of the National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012 circulated vide DOP&T OM F.No. 11/2/2008-JCA dated 13th September, 2012.

Sir,
Kindly refer to Para No. 8.1 of the Minutes of the Meeting of the 6 th CPC National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012. This is with regard to Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 i.e. fixation of pay in revised Pay Scale. The Staff Side in the meeting has reiterated their demand that the pay in the incumbents holding the merged Pay Scale of Rs. 5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 should have been fixed by applying the multiplication factor of 1.86 at Rs. 6500 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 implying thereby that the commencement point of the Pay Band-2 should be at Rs. 12090/- based on 6500 x 1.863 = 12090 instead of Rs. 9300/- computed by multiplying Rs. 5000 x 1.86. The Official Side has rejected the demand of the Staff Side and after discussion it was decided that on this issue a disagreement may have to be recorded for referring the same to arbitration. Even though it is more than 5 years after the above decision we are not aware that what action has been taken to implement the decision taken in the National Anomaly Committee Meeting.

In this situation the affected Central Government Employees working in different Ministries have approached Court of Law for getting justice. Recently the CAT Ernakulum Bench in its Order OA No. 180/00569/2014 delivered on 03rd of April, 2018 has upheld the demand of the Staff Side and has given the following direction to the Government of India. The relevant portion of the Judgment is given below for your kind information.

14. It has to be borne in mind that CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 is a Rule notified under the proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India made by the President and hence it has a statutory status in the eye of law. Therefore, any interpretation of the provisions in the said Rules has to be in terms of the Rules itself. Any O.M. issued by way of clarification, explanation or prescribing the modalities for fixation of initial pay of the Government Employees as per the revised pay structure can be only in terms of what is stated in the Rules.

15. As observed above, going by the definitions of the terms ‘existing basic pay‘ and ‘existing scale’ in the CDS (RP) Rules, 2008, Rule 7 fixation can be only in accordance with the afore-mentioned definitions of ‘existing basic pay‘ and ‘existing scale‘ only and not by way of administrative O.Ms and instructions contained in Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. Therefore, we are inclined to quash and set aside Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. We do so. We hold that the applicants are entitled to the declaration as prayed for and that the respondents should be directed to fix the initial pay of the applicants including all the members of Applicant No. 1 association in the revised pay structure by fixing their salary in the revised pay scale of Rs. 6500-10500 treating Rs. 6500/- as the existing basic pay as on 01.01.2006 with all consequential benefits. We order accordingly. This order shall be complied within 3 months from the date of receipt of copy of this order.”

In view of the above Judgement it is requested that without further prolonging the matter the above Judgment may be implemented by issuing a general instructions extending the benefit to all the similarly place Employees.

Awaiting for your favourable response please.

Thanking you,

Yours Faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary

Air Travel entitlements for journeys on tour or training; revision of instructions

Air Travel entitlements for journeys on tour or training; revision of instructions

Government of India/Bharat Sarkar
Ministry of Railways/Rail Mantralaya
(Railway Board)

 RBE No.61/2018

No. F(E)I/2017/AL-28/41

New Delhi, dated 24.04.2018

General Manager,
All Indian Railways, PUs etc.
(As per Standard Mailing List)

Sub : Air Travel entitlements for journeys on tour or training; revision of instructions reg.

In partial modification of Board’s letters of even number dated 24.08.2017 & 25.09.2017 on the subject, it has been decided by Board to revise the Air Travel entitlements of railway officers for journeys on tour or training in the following manner:

AIR-TRAVEL-journey

2. Further, in partial modification of Board’s letter of even number dated 25.09.2017, it has also been decided by Board that grant of Air Travel permission to officers on Indian Railways, either one way or two way, may be approved personally by GMs of Railways with the prior personal concurrence of PFA.

3. As delegated vide pars 22 of Board’s letter No. F(X)II-2015/PW/7, dated 12.06.2017 of delegation of powers to GMs, these powers may be exercised personally by Chief Administrative Officer with the prior personal concurrence of PFA in case of COFMOW, New Delhi, DCW/Patiala and MTP/ Chennai.

4. The competent authority while approving Air Travel would apply his mind and consider whether the available train connectivity and time taken justifies the same. For example, while Delhi-Bangalore-Delhi may qualify for Air Travel, Delhi-Mumbai-Delhi can easily be covered by train comfortably. General Manager while using his discretion to permit one way or two way Air Travel may consider both the need of the journey and the urgency that necessitates Air Travel.

5. It may be ensured that permission for Air Travel is given judiciously and restricted only to absolutely essential official requirement that is recorded, subject to availability of budgetary provisions.

6. This has the approval of Board (FC & CRB).

7. These orders will take effect from the date of issue of this letter.

8. Please acknowledge receipt.
