NATIONAL CONVENTION ON THE DEMANDS OF GRANT OF APPROPRIATE PAY SCALES TO EMPLOYEES AND OFFICERS OF ACCOUNTS AND AUDIT

Dated 10th January 2016

DECLARATION

The representatives of All India Audit & Accounts Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association, All India Audit and Accounts Officers Association, All India Association of Pay & Accounts Officers (Civil), All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, Category-II, All India Federation of Divisional Accounts Officers and Divisional Accountants Associations and All India P&T Accounts & Finance Officers Association met in the National Convention on 10th January 2016, Conference Hall, 4th Floor, Nirman Bhawan, CPWD, Koti, Hyderabad.

The Convention, in conformity with the observations given by the National Joint Council of Action of the Central Government Employees, totally rejects the anti-employee recommendations of the 7th CPC. The mutilation of Dr. Aykroyd formula in computation of minimum wages based on the 12-monthly average (ending on 1.7.2015) prices of essential commodities supplied by Labour Bureau at Shimla was a total jugglery on the part of 7thCPC.

The convention considers that, reduction in the wages of women employee who avail CCL, forcing the employees to go on voluntary retirement on completion of 20 years of service in the name of ‘inefficiency’, earmarking ‘very good’ for MACP, withdrawal of all types of short term advances like festival/cycle/ LTC etc, refusal to recommend for scrapping of new Pension scheme, refusal to propose for dispensing with the outsourcing/casualisation/ contractorisation by regularizing the employees engaged through such methods for regular government functions are the most retrograde and the anti-employee recommendations of the 7CPC.

The Convention noted that on the issue of formation of Apex Level Grievance redressal mechanism to the Group B Gazetted Officers and Promotee Group A Officers, even after 67 years of independence, settlement has not taken place mainly because of intransigent and adamant stand of the Ministry of Finance, Government of India. The meeting noted that on all other demands also there is a dilly dallying attitude on the part of authorities resulting in non-settlement.

The Convention congratulates the Central Government employees for observing 27th November 2015 as BLACK DAY by wearing black badges and holding (lunch hour) demonstration at the work place and organizing lunch hour demonstration on 30th December 2015 responding to the call of NJCA, which was duly endorsed by the Confederation.

The Convention endorses the 26 Point Charter of Demands on issues related to the recommendations of the 7th CPC submitted to the Cabinet Secretary on 10th December 2015 by the Staff Side, National Council, JCM and on behalf of the NJCA and also by the CCGGOO to the Government to discuss and settle the demands immediately.

The Convention also endorses the decisions taken by NJCA on organizational actions including the decision of massive Dharna on 19th, 20th and 21st January 2016 and Indefinite Strike in the 1st Week of March 2016 with an appeal to the entirety of the Accounts and Audit Employees and Officers of the country to prepare and participate in all preparatory programmes and the Strike action under the guidance of the local Co-ordination Committees and JCAs.

in vogue, which clearly provided for such posts being promotional grade for the feeder grade from where the promotion took place and where the posts were subsequently merged in a single post/grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

(ii) FR. 22 (r) I), which was applicable for fixation Of pay on promotion before promulgation of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, was invoked for fixation
of pay in these cases in the pre-revised structure during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules 2008.

(iii) The concerned employees had opted to come over to the revised pay structure from a date occurring prior to the date Of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

7. This order applies only in case of promotions carried out in the pre-revised structure durirg 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008. Thus, the benefit of Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 would not apply in Cases of appointment to the post which was in the higher pay scale in the pre-revised pay structure, where such appointment is made after the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

The back wages (arrears) that bank employees will get for the last 30 months will warm the cockles of their heart. Income tax authorities too will be happy as arrears will be taxable.
S Nagarajan, General Secretary, All India Bank Officers’ Association, said “A special allowance has been introduced for employees… there is a new hospitalisation scheme backed up by insurance.” The wage settlement will benefit 3,04,000 odd officers (as on March 31, 2012) in the banking sector.

Officers will get health insurance cover of Rs. 4 lakh and the clerical and sub-staff will get Rs. 3 lakh cover, he added.

A corporate buffer will be created by banks to reimburse hospitalisation expenditure exceeding the abovementioned limits.

Pointing out that the last wage settlement expired in October 2012, Nagarajan, in a lighter vein, observed that “Five years is the tenure of the wage settlement. We have already exhausted 30 months in coming to a settlement. It’s time now to submit the next charter of demands.”

Vishwas Utagi, Vice President, All India Bank Employees Association, said the wage settlement will benefit about 4.50 lakh clerical and sub-staff in the banking sector.

Bank employees will get close a couple of lakh rupees, on an average, as arrears in gross terms, he explained. Since payrolls are computerised, the arrears could be credited to employees’ accounts in a month.

Utagi said the issue of upgradation of pension of retirees and 100 per cent neutralisation of dearness allowance will be taken up by the United Forum of Bank Unions separately.

Pay Fixation on MACP as per 6th Pay Commission – Some Illustrations

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS)

MACP clarifications is given with useful illustrations for Defence Civilian Employees. This type of explanations is very useful to know and clarify the doubts of the new scheme. Wittingly to clear in the particular subject, because it is connecting with lifetime promotion of every employee.

This scheme for career upgradations to Central Govt. employees was introduced with effect from 1-09-2008 with introduction of revised pay rules 2008.

This scheme has replaced earlier scheme of Assured Career Progression Scheme of August 1999.

Under this scheme, an employee would get at least three career upgradations during his entire service on completion of 10,20 and 30 years of service.

Under this scheme an employee would be placed in next higher grade pay on completion of 10 years in previous grade and in case of no promotion has been offered to him.

a. Illustrations of Grant of MACP – Illustration – 1

In case of recruitment of an individual in Grade Pay (GP) of Rs.4200 with no promotion for 10 years,

1st financial upgradation after 10 years with GP-Rs.4600;
2nd financial upgradation after (10+10) 20 years with GP- Rs.4800;
3rd financial upgradation after (10+10+10) 30 years with GP- Rs.5400.

Illustration – 2

In case of recruitment of an individual in Grade Pay (GP) of Rs.4200 with first promotion after 5 years with GP of Rs. 4600,

The promotion will be considered as 1st financial upgradation;
2nd financial Up gradation after (5+10) 15 years with GP-Rs.4800;
3rd financial up-gradation after (5+10+10) 25 years with GP-Rs.5400.

Illustration – 3

In case of recruitment of an individual in Grade Pay (GP) of Rs.4200 with 1st promotion in 5 years with GP-Rs.4600 and 2nd promotion after 8 years,(5+8=13 years) with GP of Rs.4800,

He will get only 3rd financial up-gradation after (5+8+10) 23 years with GP-Rs.5400.

b. Norms for grant of MACP

The financial up gradation would be on non-functional basis subject to fitness in the hierarchy of pay band and grade pay.

The only benchmark of “Good” would be applicable till the grade pay of Rs.6600 in PB-3.

The benchmark will be “Very Good” for financial upgradation to the grade pay of Rs.7600 and above.

However, if the financial upgradation under the MACPS also happen to be in the promotional grade and benchmark for promotion is lower than the benchmark for granting the benefits under MACPS as mentioned in Para 17 of the scheme, the benchmark for promotion shall apply to MACP also.

c. Clarifications on MACP

If the promotional hierarchy as per recruitment rules is such that promotions are earned in the same grade pay, then the same shall be counted for the purposes of MACP.

Only the continuous regular service is counted towards qualifying service and the regular service shall commence from the date of joining in direct entry grade on the MACP envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher grade pay as given in Section1, Part A of first schedule of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008.

Financial upgradation will also be admissible whenever a person has spent 10 years in the same grade pay.

Only regular service rendered in the Central Government Department/Office would be counted for the purposes of grant of MACP.

All tenures spent on deputation, Foreign Service, study leave, all kind of leave, shall be included in the regular service.

d. The benefits of MACP are admissible upto HAG scale of Rs. 67000-79000.

All cases of grant of promotions/ACPs under pre-revised pay scales of Rs. 5000-8000, Rs. 5500-9000, Rs. 6500-10500 and Rs. 7400-11500 and if those merged w.e.f. 1-1-2006 would be ignored for purpose of grant of financial upgradation under the scheme.

PCDA Clarification on Dearness Relief to re-employed Ex-servicemen

Office of the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension),

Draupadi Ghat, Allahabad-211014

Date:12.05.2015

Sub: Payment of Dearness Relief to re employed pensioner: Clarification thereof.

As per para l(a) of MOD letter No. 7(1)/95/D(Pen/Services) dated 28.8.2000, entire pension admissible to ex-servicemen who held post below commissioned officers (PBOR) at the time of retirement, is ignored and their pay on re-employment is to be fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which they are re-employed. Such pensioners will consequently be entitled to dearness relief on their pension.
Deptt. of Pension and Pensioners Welfare, vide their UO No.41/42/2007/P&PW(G) dt. 03.04.2008, reproduced under this office circular No. 386 dt. 19.06.2008, further clarified that if the pay is fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of last pay drawn is given, the pay should be treated as fixed at a minimum only for the purpose of ignoring the entire pension and allowing dearness relief on pension. For availing this benefit the ex-servicemen would have retired at post below commissioned officers Rank (PBOR) before attaining the age of 55 years.

Now representations from the banks, where number of ex-clarify the elements to be taken into account for assessing the last pay drawn by the ex-servicemen for the purpose of last pay protection.

The dearness relief on re-employment should be regulated by the Pension Disbursing Agencies on the basis of certificate issued by re-employer, clearly stating whether benefit of last pay protection has been given or not. However, on examination of cases submitted by the banks it has been found that pay scale in banks are still on old pattern, whereas ex-servicemen have been retired with Pay in Pay Band, Grade Pay, MSP, Group Pay etc. In such cases it is clarified that for the purpose of assessing the last pay drawn for last pay protection, the elements to be taken into account should be last pay in pay band i.e. Band Pay plus Grade Pay, last drawn before retirement as envisaged vide MOP, PG & P, DOPT OM NO. 3/19/2009 Estt. Pay II dt. 8th Nov 2010 and no other elements should be taken for this purpose.

In view of the above, it is advised that all the cases of dearness relief where pay of ex-servicemen has been fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments may be reviewed and regulated accordingly.

Merger of 50% DA, Retirement age Order news goes viral in Social Media

Order for Merger of 50% DA, Retirement age news goes viral in Social Media

Recently rumour mill went overdrive in social media with the following news that

1.central government decided to Merge 50% DA with basic pay with effect from 1.1.2015 and order will be issued within 15 days

2. Encashment of Earned Leave to be curtailed to 180days instead of existing 300 days.

3.It went on to say that age of Retirement will be on completion of 33 Years of service or at the age of 58 Years whichever is earlier

According to the Social Media , the above strong decisions were taken in last three meeting of cabinet committee to recommend 7th pay commission. Further the post published in social media warned the central government employees that if above decisions are implemented; they should not expect more from 7th Pay Commission. Since it is considered to be the indication of what the think tank of central government will do for its employees.

We enquired about this rumour with one of the Member to the National council JCM, who recently met the 7th Pay Commission. According to him, the central government has firm on its decision not to accept the Merger of DA with Pay, since the due date of the 7th Pay Commission to submit its recommendation is nearing and the central government in many occasions cleared that the recommendation of 7th pay commission will be implemented from 1.1.2016. So there is no question of issuing order for merger of 50% DA with effect from 1.1.2015.

Further he clarified that the present government wanted to use the man-hours of central government employees productively by introducing new systems like bio metric attendance etc. Hence curtailing EL Encashment will lead the central government employees to take more leave if it is not allowed for encashment. So there is no need to implement such proposal as government point of view is against taking leave by Govt officials.

There is mixed response from the sources whether the retirement age of central government employees will be revised or not. It is believed that the present government is in favour of reducing retirement age to 58. But at the same time government doesn’t want loose resources of knowledge gained through experience by reducing retirement age of Government employees. Since the work culture of government service is deteriorating day by day due to various factors , govt would like to retain the experience of the senior Government officials . Anubhav is the one of the initiative introduced by the central government to improve the work culture of youngsters in government service. So there will not be any change in retirement age of central government employees at present.

This item was earlier discussed in the JCM (DC) and it is assured by Secretary (Posts) that the Recruitment Rules will be reviewed after one or two Recruitment / Promotional exam are over, as DOP&T may not approve immediate revision of Recruitment Rules already approved by it.  Now more than two Postmen/MG/ MTS recruitment / examination is over and hence it is requested to take action to revise the Recruitment Rules and stop open quota recruitment.  Entire vacancies may be earmarked for GDS and Casual Labourers as existed in the pre-revised Recruitment Rules.

As decided in earlier JCM, the said RRs are to be relooked after seeing the outcome of one or two exams. The process is still going on. Most of the Circles have completed one round of recruitment process for direct recruitment quota, and others on their way to completing the same. Subsequently, pre-appointment formalities, trainings etc. would require to be completed in case of newly recruited officials. Therefore, Circles need time to judge the capabilities and skills of these officials and furnish proper and accurate feedback thereto to this Directorate for further consideration in the matter. Hence, time is not ripe to revisit the said RRs.

As regards RRs of Postman, open market quota of 25% has already been given to GDS.  Now, as per the existing RRs, only the unfilled vacancies, which could not be filled by the MTS/GDS, go to open market for filling up.

The massive congregation of the representatives of Central Govt Employees who have come from various parts of the country held at Jantar Mantar before the Indian Parliament on 28-04-2015 decided to commence the indefinite strike action from 23rd November 2015 from 6 AM having failed to elicit any positive response from the Government in settlement of the 10 point Charter of Demands submitted months back. It was also decided that the Railways and Defence organizations will conduct the strike Ballot as per the provision of the Industrial Disputes Act and Recognition Rules before commencing the strike from 23-11-2015.

The massive gathering adopted the resolution unanimously exhorting the central Govt. Employees to prepare for the eventual strike action in all earnestness and make it a historic one.

The meeting congratulates the employees for forging exemplary unity and carrying out various programmes chalked out by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) after the national convention on 11th December 2014. Even though the Govt. was compelled to set up the 7th CPC on account of the sanctions generated through the action programmes, Govt. has refused to grant Interim Relief and merger of DA and excluded the Gramin Dak Sewaks of the Postal Department from the ambit of the 7th CPC.

It is a matter of regret that in spite of public admission of non-privatisation of Indian Railways by Prime Minister of India and assurance of Minister of Railways on various occasions, including Parliament, Dr. Deb Roy Committee had submitted a report which is a clear roadmap for privatisation of IR.

The meeting noted that the Government has purposely ensured the closure of Joint Consultative Machinery, the negotiating forum set up in 1966 for Central Government Employees to discuss and bring about settlement of their demands.

The meeting chaired by Secretary (Personnel) on 25th February 2015 did not bring about settlement on any single issue of the Charter of Demands.

The meeting unanimously decided to demand before the Government to convene the meeting of National Council, JCM immediately and settle the following charter of demands, if at all it wants to avoid confrontation with its own employees.

CHARTER OF DEMANDS:

1. Effect wage revision of the Central Government Employees from 01.01.2014, accepting the memorandum of the Staff Side JCM; ensure 5-year wage revision in future; grant Interim Relief and Merger of 100% of DA. Ensure submission of the 7th CPC report within the stipulated time frame of 18 months; include the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the ambit of the 7th CPC. Settle all anomalies of the 6th CPC.

2. No privatisation, PPP or FDI in Railways and Defence Establishments and no corporatisation of postal services.

3. No Ban on recruitment/creation of post.

4. Scrap PFRDA Act and re-introduce the defined benefit statutory pension scheme.

5. No outsourcing; contractorisation, privatisation of governmental functions; withdraw the proposed move to close down the Printing Presses; the publication, form store and stationery departments and Medical Stores Depots; regularise the existing daily rated/casual and contract workers and absorption of trained apprentices.

6. Revive the JCM functioning at all levels as an effective negotiating forum for settlement of the demands of the CGEs.

7. Remove the arbitrary ceiling on compassionate appointments.

8. No labour reforms which are inimical to the interest of the workers.

9. Remove the ceiling on payment of Bonus.

10. Ensure five promotions in the service career.

The meeting authorized the National JCA to take appropriate and necessary steps needed to make the indefinite strike beginning from 23rd November 2015 an unprecedented and grand success.
