CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion

CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion

Dated: 6th December, 2016

 OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No. 11012/6/2008-Estt.(A) dated 7th July, 2008 on the above mentioned subject and to say that vide para 2(iii) of the said OM, it was instructed that where a departmental proceeding has been instituted, and it is considered that a Government servant deserves to be penalized for the offence/misconduct, one of the prescribed penalties may only be awarded and no warning, recordable or otherwise, should be issued to the Government servant. However, while considering cases for empanelment, the ACC has observed that in many cases, rather than exonerating the officer or imposing a penalty on him, administrative warning is issued even when disciplinary proceeding were drawn against him. Administrative warning is not recognized as a penalty.

2. In view of the above, the following position as contained in various instructions issued so far on warning/Censure etc. are reiterated for strict compliance:

(i) As clarified in the Ministry of Home Affairs O.M. No. 39/21/56-Estt.(A) dated 13 th December, 1956, warning is administered by any authority superior to a Government employee in the event of minor lapses like negligence, carelessness, lack of thoroughness, delay etc. It is an administrative device in the hands of superior authorities for cautioning the Government employees with a view to toning up efficiency and maintaining discipline. There is, therefore, no objection to the continuance of this system. However, where a copy of the warning is also kept in the Confidential Report dossier, it will be taken to constitute an adverse entry and the officer so warned will have the right to represent against the same in accordance with the existing instructions relating to communication of adverse remarks and consideration of representations against them.

(ii) Where a departmental proceeding has been instituted under the provisions of CCS(CC&A) Rules 1965, after the conclusion of disciplinary proceedings, the officer is either exonerated or where it is considered that some blame attaches to the officer, he should be awarded one of the recognized statutory penalties as given in Rule 11 of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 i.e. at least ‘Censure’ should be imposed. In such a situation, a warning, recordable or otherwise, should not be issued.

(iii) Warning, letter of caution, reprimands or advisories administered to Government servants do not amount to a penalty and, therefore, will not constitute a bar for consideration of such Government servants for promotion.

3. All the disciplinary authorities in Ministries/Departments are, therefore, requested to keep in view the above guidelines while dealing with disciplinary case against the Government servants.

4. Hindi version will follow.

Central Government paves way for employees timely promotions

Central Government paves way for employees timely promotions

New Delhi: All central government departments have been asked to conduct meetings of Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) in time to check “abnormal delay” in giving career benefits to employees.

The move comes after noticing cases of delay in holding the meeting of DPC -which decides on employees’ promotions.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has issued instructions to all the departments asking them to ensure timely promotions to the employees by conducting meetings of DPC in time.

A model calender has also been issued by the DoPT in this regard.

It has been brought to the notice of the government that many promotion posts are lying vacant due to abnormal delay in convening DPCs.

“The objective of timely promotions of employees in various ministries and departments can be achieved only by holding DPC meetings.

“In view of above, all ministries and departments are again advised to ensure strict compliance of instructions in order achieve the desired objectives of timely convening of DPCs/preparation of approved select panels within the prescribed time frame,” the DoPT said in an order.

There are about 50.68 lakh central government employees.

Confusion Continues in Promotion Option after Finance Ministry order

Confusion Continues in Promotion Option after Finance Ministry order

Ministry of finance has issued an Office Memorandum regarding Revising Promotion Option under FR 22(1) (a).

Here there should not be any misunderstanding between Exercising Option for Pay Revision under CCS (RP) Rules 2016 and Exercising option for Pay Fixation for Promotion/MACP under FR 22(1)(a)

As per the provisions of FR 22 (l) (a) the Government servants have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion or from the date of next increment.

Some of the employees. promoted between 01.01.2016 and 25.7.2016 had opted for their pay fixation on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of CCS CRP) Rules, 2016 i.e 25th July, 2016. the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous.

In some Department the Employees Promoted between 01-01-2016 and 25-7-2016 are allowed to exercise their Option to revise their Pay from the Date of Next increment i.e 1st July 2016.

But As per the provisos to CCS (RP) Rules 2016, they should not have been allowed to give option to revise their Pay beyond their date of Promotion Since it has been stated in CCS (RP) Rules 2016 under Rule No.5.

Now the Ministry of Finance issued an OM which says
Under the changed circumstances after notification of CCS (RP) Rules. 2016. the employee may be allowed to exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR 22(I)(a)(I). Such revised option shall be exercised within one month of issue of this OM Option so revised, shall be final

After this Clarification there is confusion among Government servants those who got Promotion between 01-01-2016 and 25-7-2016 regarding how their Pay will be fixed…?

The Doubts are ..

1. What is the status of Employees promoted between 01.01.2016 and 25.7.2016 and opted to Revise their pay on Date of Next Increment i.e 1.7.2016 ?

i. Would they be asked to revise their promotion option under FR 22(1)(a) ?

ii. The option Exercised under the provisos to rule 5 of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 also to be revised again…?

iii. If one opt to fix the pay on Date of Promotion under FR 22(1)(a) and Opt to revise the pay on date of Promotion under Revised Pay Rules 2016, how the Pay will be fixed…?

The Concerned Departments / Federations may take up this issue to appropriate level for necessary clarification to clear the doubts of central government Employees.

7th Pay Commission : Government accepts Proposals on Promotion for Employees

7th Pay Commission : Government accepts Proposals on Promotion for Employees. The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions issued a notification to the effect on September 28 2016.

The central government has accepted the 7th Pay Commission (CPC) recommendations on time-bound promotion for Central government employees that will ensure at least one career progression every 10 years.

The 7th pay commission in its November 2015 report had said that despite demands for increasing the frequency of time bound promotion, it had decided to retain the existing scheme, known as Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS).

The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions issued a notification to the effect on September 28 2016.

The 7th pay commission report said that resentment over the existing pay structures that prompted the demand have been addressed by rationalisation of pay levels, abolition of pay band and grade pay Report of the Seventh CPC 82 Index and introduction of a matrix based open pay structure.

Hence, there is no justification for increasing the frequency of MACP and it will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. In the new Pay matrix, the employees will move to the immediate next level in the hierarchy. Fixation of pay will follow the same principle as that for a regular promotion in the pay matrix, the CPC report had recommended.

This has been accepted by the Central government.

The Government has considered the above recommendation and has accepted the same. In the light of the recommendations of the 7th CPC accepted by the Government, the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before, the September 28 notification read.

The Central government also approved the 7th pay commission recommendations on performance appraisal for employees to qualify under the MACP.

There is, however, one significant aspect where this Commission feels that a change is required. This is with regard to the benchmark for performance appraisal for MACP as well as for regular promotion. The Commission recommends that this benchmark, in the interest of improving performance level, be enhanced from Good to Very Good.  In addition, introduction of more stringent criteria such as clearing of departmental examinations or mandatory training before grant of MACP can also be considered by the government, the CPC had proposed.

The changes will be effective from July 25 2016.

Promotion to the post of Supervisor (NT) from Leading Fireman: Norms Relaxation in OFB BPMS

Promotion to the post of Supervisor (NT) from Leading Fireman: Norms Relaxation in OFB.

REF: BPMS / MoD / 90th SCM (4/1/M) Dated: 26.09.2016

To,
The Under Secretary D (Estt./NG)
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
B Wing, Sena Bhawan,
New Delhi 110011
Subject: Promotion to the post of Supervisor (NT) from Leading Fireman: Norms Relaxation in OFB.

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 63 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation submitted that Hon’ble CAT/Principal Bench, New Delhi in OA No. 1396 of 2008 Shri M.R.Meena Vs Union of India has ordered that parity should be maintained between Leading Hand Fire with other feeder grades (viz. LDC, Photographer, Telephone Operator II & Subedar Durwan) for the promotion to the post of Supervisor (Non Technical).

According to existing SRO 30, dated 14.07.2010, Ministry of Defence, Ordnance Factories, Supervisor (Non-Technical) and Telephone Operator Grade II Group C Posts Recruitment Rules, 2010, 50% vacant posts of Supervisor (Non-Tech) will be filled up by promotion from Photographer, Telephone Operator Grade-II, Subedar Durwan and Leading Hand Fire. This fifty per cent post of Supervisor (NT) may be filled up by 64% from the Leading Hand Fires in the Pay Band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus Grade Pay of Rs. 2000/- with five years of regular service in the grade and possessing any of the following qualification:

(a) having passed the Senior Fire Supervisory Course from Defence Institute of Fire Research, Ministry of Defence, New Delhi; or

(b) having passed the Sub Officer’s Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute; or

(c) having passed Station Officer’s Course or Assistant Divisional Officer’s or Divisional Officer’s Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute;
or
(d) Degree in Fire Engineering from Nagpur University or any other recognized institute; or

(e) having passed Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers United Kingdom or Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers India

It is to be noted that this fifty per cent post will be be filled up by 17% from amongst Telephone Operators in the Pay Band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service; 12% from Subedar Durwan in the Pay band of Rs. (4400 to 7440) plus GP Rs. 1600/- with 14 years regular service in the grade; 7% from Photographer in the Pay band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service. From above it is seen that Leading Hand Fire should have more qualification in comparison to the other feeder categories for Supervisor (NT) whereas all the incumbents have to perform the same responsibility with the same Grade Pay, i.e. Rs. 2400/- (Pre Revised Rs. 4000 to 6000).

It is to be kept in the mind that Vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) Notification G.S.R. 622(E), dated 29.08.2008 CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 has been introduced and the First Schedule Part-B, Section II states that Station Officer’s pay scale Rs. (4000 to 6000) (Fire Fighting Staff) has been upgraded to Rs. (4500 to 7000) and revised to GP Rs. 2800/-, whereas Supervisor (NT) is being granted the GP Rs. 2400/- on promotion from the post of Leading Hand Fire. Thus, the provisions of SRO 30 have not been framed considering the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 as the qualification of only one of the feeder posts Leading Hand Fire has been enhanced but the Grade Pay of promotional post Supervisor (NT) for Fire Fighting Staff has not been enhanced to Rs. 2800/-

In this regards, comments offered by D(Estt./NG) is enclosed for your ready reference. Therefore, your attention is invited to Rule 6 of SRO 30 which empowers the Central Government to relax the provisions of these rules to any class or category of persons and you are requested to take appropriate action so that existing Leading Hand Fire incumbents who are not fulfilling the requisite qualification may also be promoted to the post of Supervisor (NT) by granting relaxation in qualification as mentioned hereinabove.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

(MUKESH SINGH)
Secretary/BPMS &
Member, JCM-II Level Council (MOD)

The 4th item of SN/12 of the list, name Vijay Hazare Trophy (One Day Limited Overs All India Inter Zonal Championship) as under-19 Men Cricket Championship.

However as per the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Handbook, the Vijay Hazare Trophy is for Seniors and is not a Junior Championship. The inclusion of the said Championship in the List of Junior Championship in the above said Board’s policy letter dated 31.12.2010 is thus a clerical mistake and may be treated as deleted.

Promotion of Group ’A’ and Group ‘B’ officers to Senior Scale on ad-hoc basis: Railway Board Order

Promotion of Group ’A’ and Group ‘B’ officers to Senior Scale on ad-hoc basis: Railway Board Order

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No. E(GP)2016/1/9

New Delhi, dated 11.08.2016

The General Managers/Chief Administrative Officers/Director General,
All Indian Railways including CLW, DLW, ICF, DMW, RWF, RCF, COFMOW, MCF/RBL & RDSO.

Sub: Promotion of Group ’A’ and Group ‘B’ officers to Senior Scale on ad-hoc basis.

Ref: Board’s letter Nos. E(GP)85/1/48 dated 31.12.85, EV(GP)89/1/8 dated 17.04.90 and 22.08.90.

In terms of Board’s letter No. ElGP)85/1/48 dated 31.12.85, Group ‘A’/Junior Scale officers with more than 3 years of service but less than 4 years, were eligible to be considered for looking after the duties in Senior Scale, on payment of Special pay, as fixed from time to time by the Board, in addition to their pay in Junior Scale, and it was only in the absence of Group ’A’ officers who have completed their probation successfully, that Group ‘B’ officers who have rendered not less than 3 years of service in Group ’B’ could be considered for ad-hoc appointment to Senior Scale. This was based on the fact that all Senior Scale posts are in Group ’A’ and, as such Group ‘B’ officers, irrespective of their length of service, can have no claim for promotion to Senior Scale, even on ad-hoc basis. However, while the position as contained in Board’s letter dated 31.12.85 basically remaining unchanged, it was decided by the Board vide Board’s letter No. E(GP)89/1/8 dated 17.04.90, as a temporary measure in the overall administrative interest, that in cases where a Group ‘A’/Junior Scale officer who was eligible for regular promotion to Senior Scale, having completed 4 years’ service, was not available, Group ‘B’ officers, who had rendered not less than 6 years’ service in Group ‘B’, could be considered for ad-hoc promotion to Senior Scale, and in case, no such Group ‘B’ officer was available, the provisions contained in sub-paras 3.1(ii) and (iii) of Board’s letter dated 31.12.85, would continue to be followed.

2. The matter has since been reconsidered by the Board. After careful consideration, it has been decided that the position as was laid down in Board’s letter No. E(GP)85/1/48 dated 31.12.85 which is in consonance with Rule 214(b) of IREC Vol.- I, be restored. Therefore, the order of preference to be followed henceforth, while considering Group ’A’ (Junior Scale/Group ’B’ officers for ad-hoc promotion against Senior Scale vacancies, will be sunder:-

i) Vacancies arising in Senior Scale should be filled by Group .‘A’/Junior Scale officers with 4 years of service who are eligible for regular promotion to Senior Scale;

ii) If eligible Group ‘A’/Junior Scale officers are not available but Junior Scale officers with a minimum of 3 years of service in Junior Scale, who have completed the probation successfully, are available, they should be considered for looking after the duties in Senior Scale on payment of charge allowance, as fixed by the Board from time to time, in addition to pay in Junior Scale, subject to the condition that pay plus charge allowance does not exceed the pay admissible on regular promotion to Senior Scale on completion of 4 years of service in Junior Scale;

iii) Failing (i) and (ii) above, by Group ’B’ officers who have rendered not less than 3 years of service in Group ‘B’ and have been adjudged suitable by a Committee of HODs for appointment against Senior Scale vacancies.

3. For making ad-hoc promotion to Senior Scale, number of vacancies arising during the period 1st July of any year to 30th June of the following year shall be computed and while empanelling Group ’B’ officers for ad-hoc promotion to Senior Scale against any such vacancies it shall be ensured that there may be no reasonable likelihood of any such Group B’ officers not getting empanelled for regular promotion to Group ’A’/Junior Scale at a later date by the DPC constituted by the UPSC, and also adequate number of Senior Scale vacancies are available for Group ‘A’/Junior Scale officers so as to consider them for ad-hoc promotion on completion of 3 years of service, so that there may be no occasion for Group ‘B’ officers having to be reverted once they have been promoted to Senior Scale on ad-hoc basis.

Cabinet approves special package for employment generation and promotion of exports in Textile and Apparel sector

Cabinet approves special package for employment generation and promotion of exports in Textile and Apparel sector
The Union Cabinet under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given approval for a special package for employment generation and promotion of exports in Textile and Apparel sector.

The move comes in the backdrop of the package of reforms announced by the Government for generation of one crore jobs in the textile and apparel industry over next 3 years. The package includes a slew of measures which are labour friendly and would promote employment generation, economies of scale and boost exports. The steps will lead to a cumulative increase of US$ 30 bn. in exports and investment of Rs. 74,000 crores over next 3 years.

The majority of new jobs are likely to go to women since the garment industry employs nearly 70% women workforce. Thus, the package would help in social transformation through women empowerment.

Salient features of the package announced are:

A. Employee Provident Fund Scheme Reforms

  • Govt. of India shall bear the entire 12% of the employers’ contribution of the Employers Provident Fund Scheme for new employees of garment industry for first 3 years who are earning less than Rs. 15,000 per month.
  • At present, 8.33% of employer’s contribution is already being provided by Government under Pradhan Mantri Rozgar Protsahan Yojana (PMRPY). Ministry of Textiles shall provide additional 3.67% of the employer’s contribution amounting to Rs. 1,170 crores over next 3 years.
  • EPF shall be made optional for employees earning less than Rs. 15,000 per month
  • This shall leave more money in the hands of the workers and also promote employment in the formal sector.

B. Increasing overtime caps

  • Overtime hours for workers not to exceed 8 hours per week in line with ILO norms.
  • This shall lead to increased earnings for the workers

C. Introduction of fixed term employment

  • Looking to the seasonal nature of the industry, fixed term employment shall be introduced for the garment sector
  • A fixed term workman will be considered at par with permanent workman in terms of working hours, wages, allowance and other statutory dues.

D. Additional incentives under ATUFS

  • The package breaks new ground in moving from input to outcome based incentives by increasing subsidy under Amended-TUFS from 15% to 25% for the garment sector as a boost to employment generation.
  • A unique feature of the scheme will be to disburse the subsidy only after the expected jobs are created.

E. Enhanced duty drawback coverage

  • In a first of its kind move, a new scheme will be introduced to refund the state levies which were not refunded so far.
  • This move is expected to cost the exchequer Rs 5500 crores but will greatly boost the competitiveness of Indian exports in foreign markets.
  • Drawback at All Industries Rate to be given for domestic duty paid inputs even when fabrics are imported under Advance Authorization Scheme

F. Enhancing scope of Section 80JJAA of Income Tax Act

  • Looking at the seasonal nature of garment industry, the provision of 240 days under Section 80JJAA of Income Tax Act would be relaxed to 150 days for garment industry

Centre mulls linking teachers promotion with students performance

Centre mulls linking teachers promotion with students performance

 

The central government is considering linking the promotion of teachers to the performance of their students, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani said on Friday.

Speaking at the launch of a statewide Vidyalay Chale Chalayein Abhiyaan in Kalamati village in Khunti district of Jharkhand (approximately 30 kilometers from Ranchi), Irani said teachers to understand the responsibility they have in shaping the future of the students, if India was to take its position as the ‘vishwa guru (world teacher)’.

“My appeal to teachers is that they should realise these students are actually assets of society, who have been handed over to you for betterment. We are also thinking of linking teachers’ promotion with children’s performance,” the minister said addressing teachers.

The minister also appealed to the parents to participate in school management committees, “There are rules in place which entitle the presence of parents in the school management committee.”

She also said, “The parents send their wards to schools with a lot of hope. For families with weaker financial backgrounds, hopes on their school-going children are even higher for a better future. Hence the teachers have to be accountable.”

Irani also explained central proposal, “We at the Centre are planning on how to align the promotion of teachers with the performance of their respective classes. The promotion of teachers will also depend on the performance of individual students.”

Implementation of schemes for promotion/development of sports

Implementation of schemes for promotion/development of sports

The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs & Sports, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal has said that the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports is implementing only one Centrally Sponsored Scheme for development of sports, namely the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Abhiyan (RGKA), w.e.f. 01.04.2014. This Scheme provides for construction of an integrated sports complex in each block of the country both for outdoor and indoor sports disciplines and also provides for grant-in-aid for holding competitions at block, district, State and National levels.

In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today the Minister said, in addition, the Sports Authority of India (SAI), an autonomous body under the aegis of the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, implements the following sports promotional schemes all over the country in order to identify young sports talent in the age group ranging from 8-25 years and to nurture them to excel at National and International competitions:

• National Sports Talent Contest (NSTC)

• Army Boys Sports Company (ABSC)

• SAI Training Centre (STC)

• Special Area Games (SAG)

• Extension Centres of STC/SAG

• Centre of Excellence (COE)

• SAI National Sports Academies

In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today the Minister said, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Abhiyan (RGKA) Scheme provided for funding of infrastructure component through convergence of various schemes implemented by Ministry of Rural Development, Ministry of Panchayati Raj, Ministry of Development of North East Region, and erstwhile Planning Commission. However, no funds could be obtained towards infrastructure due to non-convergence of various schemes by the concerned Ministries. Accordingly, the Government of India, after consultation with the State Governments/Sports Authority of India (SAI), etc., has decided to restructure and merge a number of Centrally Sponsored Schemes, including the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of RGKA, into one Central Sector Scheme to address talent search, grooming of talent and provision of infrastructure to ensure its effective implementation.
