OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Amendment to the Rule 152 of General Financial Rule, 2017 -Reg.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to the provisions of Rule 152 of GFRs, 2017 which inter-alia states that as per the Compulsory Enlistment Scheme of the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance, it is compulsory for Indian agents, who desire to quote directly on behalf of their foreign principals, to get themselves enlisted with the Central Purchase Organization (eg.DGS&D). However, such enlistment is not equivalent to registration of suppliers as mentioned under Rule 150.

2. This department has received reference from Directorate General of Supplies & Disposals (DGS&D) to decentralize the activities of enlistment of Indian agent under Compulsory Enlistment Scheme as DGS&D is winding up by 31.10.2017. Hence, it is decided in consultation with major procuring Ministries/ Departments that the existing provision of Rule 152 at Chapter 6 of General Financial Rule, 2017 which deals with ‘Procurement of Goods and Services” shall be substituted by the provision indicated as under:

“Rule 152: Enlistment of Indian Agents: Ministries / Departments if they so require, may enlist Indian agents, who desire to quote directly on behalf of their foreign principals.”

3. This OM is also available on our website http: http://doe.gov.in -> Notification -> Circular –> Procurement Policy OM.

Scrapping of Interview for lower level Posts in Central Government to curb corruption – Government press release

As per information available as on 24th July, 2017, 18 States and 7 Union Territories have discontinued the practice of interview in recruitment for lower level posts.

The objective of discontinuation of interview in selection process at lower level posts is to curb corruption, more objective selection in transparent manner and substantially easing the problems of poor aspirants. Union Territory Administration of Daman & Diu has informed that it has benefitted them economically by way of savings on account of non-application of Travelling Allowance/ Daily Allowance and other expenditure involved in calling candidates for interview. Further, Union Territory Administration of Lakshadweep has informed that local aspirants have economically benefitted from this initiative of the Government.

The States of Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Haryana, Mizoram, Tripura, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are yet to decide about discontinuation of interview in the recruitment of lower level posts. The States of Sikkim and Meghalaya have not adopted the process of discontinuation of interviews in recruitment to lower level posts. However, information regarding the State of Nagaland is not available. Further, it has been informed by the State of Odisha that steps have already been taken to implement scrapping of interview system concerning junior level posts (Group B & C) of all Departments.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Naranbhai Kachhadiya in the Lok Sabha today.

EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK

EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT
LOK SABHA
UNSTARRED QUESTION NO. 1294
TO BE ANSWERED ON 24.07.2017

EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK

1294. SHRI KANWAR SINGH TANWAR:

SHRI HARI MANJHI:

SHRI INNOCENT:

Will the Minister of LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT be pleased to state:

(a)whether the Hon’ble Supreme Court has given a ruling that the theory of equal pay for equal work should be implemented and if so, the details thereof;

(b)whether the Hon’ble Court has also reiterated that there should be no disparity in the salary of regular and casual workers in a welfare State if both are doing same nature of work and if so, the details thereof;

(c)whether the Government is aware that the contract workers are being deprived from equal pay for equal work by their employers and if so, the details thereof;

(d)whether the Government has set up/proposes to set up a suitable redressal mechanism in this regard and if so, the details thereof; and

(e)the other measures taken/proposed to be taken by the Government for the welfare and social security of workers including casual/contract workers in the country?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE (IC) FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT 

(SHRI BANDARU DATTATREYA)

(a) & (b): In civil appeal number 213 of 2013 the issue for consideration ofthe Hon’ble Supreme Court was as under:

“whether temporarily engaged employees (daily-wage employees, ad-appointees, employees appointed on casual basis, contractual employees and the like), are entitled to minimum of the regular pay-scale, alongwith dearness allowance (as revised from time to time) on account of their performing the same duties, which are discharged by those engaged on regular basis, against sanctioned posts”.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court held that:

“There can be no doubt, that the principle of ‘equal pay for equal work’ would be applicable to all the concerned temporary employees, so as to vest in them the right to claim wages, at par with the minimum of the pay-scale of regularly engaged Government employees, holding the same post”

(c) & (d): In so far as the contract labour is concerned, the ContractLabour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970 and the rules framed thereunder regulate the employment of contract labour. Rule 25(2)(v)(a) of the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Central Rules, 1971 provides for parity as mentioned below:

“in cases where the workmen employed by the contractor perform the same or similar kind of work as the workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment, the wage rates, holidays, hours of work and other conditions of service of the workmen of the contractor shall be the same as applicable to the workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment on the same or similar kind of work”

A well-established Central Industrial Relations Machinery (CIRM) is in place to enforce the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970. The country-wide network of Dy. Chief Labour Commissioners (Central) and Regional Labour Commissioners (Central) under the control of Chief Labour Commissioner (Central) is mandated to settle the complaints/claims of the contract workers in terms of the provisions of the said Act and the Rules framed thereunder

(e): In order to provide social security benefits to the workers in theorganised sector, the Government has enacted the Employees’ Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 and Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948.

For providing social security benefits to the workers in the unorganised sector, the Government has enacted the Unorganised Workers’ Social Security Act, 2008 which stipulates formulation of suitable welfare schemes for unorganised workers on matters relating to:

(i) life and disability cover,

(ii) health and maternity benefits,

(iii) old age protection and

(iv) any other benefit as may be determined by the Central Government through the National Social Security Board. Various Schemes, formulated by the Government to provide social security cover to the unorganized workers as listed in Schedule I of the above Act.

Central Government has also launched the Atal Pension Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana for all citizens especially targeting unorganised workers to provide them comprehensive social security.

STANDING COMMITTEE MEMBERS, STAFF SIDE NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM, REPRESENTING CONFEDERATION DISAGREE AND DISOWN THE STATEMENT OF SRI. SHIV GOPAL MISRA, SECRETARY, STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM

Confederation Of Central Government Employees & Workers

DATED – 30.06.2017

STANDING COMMITTEE MEMBERS, STAFF SIDE NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM, REPRESENTING CONFEDERATION DISAGREE AND DISOWN THE STATEMENT OF SRI. SHIV GOPAL MISRA, SECRETARY, STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM

It was extremely unfortunate that the Staff Side Secretary through his press statement issued yesterday has chosen to praise the Modi Government over the decisions it had taken on various demands of the Central Govt. employees. The said statement was issued apparently without causing any consultation either formally or informally with the other members of the Staff Side, in any case not at all in consultation with the signatories of this statement.  We, being the members of the Standing Committee, emphatically disagree and distance ourselves from the position taken by him in the Press Statement.

There had been no justification for the 7th CPC to reduce the rate of HRA by an imagined factor of 0.8. Neither during the discussions, the staff side had with the committee headed by the Expenditure Secretary, nor in the press release issued after the Cabinet meeting, the Govt. had advanced  any logic for their decision to restore the rate of HRA only for those who draw pay at the level of Rs.18000. There had been no appreciation of any of the concerns or issues raised by the staff side and whatever decisions so far taken by the Govt. was inconsonance with the views and recommendations of the top echelons of the bureaucracy,  be in the matter of allowances, minimum wage, fitment factor, rejection  of option no.1 for the pensioners or withdrawal of  NPS. There is no justification, whatsoever, for denial of arrears of HRA with effect from 01.01.2016.

The highly defective computation of minimum wage by the 7th CPC and the consequent denial of a reasonable wage structure, withdrawal of existing allowances and benefits, virtual abrogation of the time bound promotion to the lower category of employees; rejection of option No. 1 to pensioners, refusal to grant atleast a  minimum guaranteed pension under NPS, denial of arrears of HRA from 01.01.2016  require the  strongest condemnation.

The fact that decisions taken by the Govt. on 7thCPC issues are clear reflections of Modi Government’s. anti- labour attitude ought to have been, what the staff side secretary conveyed through his press release. His statement has, as stated earlier sadly reflects the total disconnect between the common Central Govt. employees and JCM staff side leadership.
Had it been the statement on behalf of the AIRF, we would not have issued this denouncement  at all, as we consider that it is the prerogative of each organisation to view things in their perspective and formulate their  opinions.

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.

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

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.

Allowances to Central Government Employees – Questions in Parliament

All allowances (except Dearness Allowance) to Central Government Employees – Questions in Parliament

Allowances to Government Employees

In Lok Sabha on 18.11.2016, the Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley has replied in a written form regarding the allowances to Central Government employees recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission. The complete text of the reply is reproduced and given below for your information.

“In view of the number of representations received with regard to substantial changes with the existing provisions relating to Allowances recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission, the Government has set up a Committee to examine the recommendations of the Commission on allowances (except Dearness Allowance). The Committee has been asked to go into the recommendations of the Commission on various allowances and, having regard to the representations made by the staff associations as also the suggestions of the concerned Ministries/Departments and to make recommendations as to whether any changes in the recommendations of the Commission are warranted and, if so, in what form. Till a final decision is taken by the Government based on the recommendations of this Committee, all allowances (except Dearness Allowance) will continue to be paid at existing rates in the existing pay structure. The Committee, constituted vide order dated 22.7.2016, is to submit its report within four months.

The Committee has been interacting with various stake-holders to discuss their demands and has so far held discussions with National Council (Staff Side), Joint Consultative Machinery, representatives from staff associations and officials from Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Ministry of Home Affairs and Department of Posts. The Committee may also interact with the representatives of some other major Ministries/Departments and stakeholders with whom consultations are yet to be held before finalizing its Report. On submission of the Report, the matter pertaining to allowances will be considered by the Government and appropriate decision will be taken thereafter.”
