Can Retirement age 60 to 58 Solve Unemployment Problem?

Can Retirement age 60 to 58 Solve Unemployment Problem?

“The Financial Express”, one of the leading newspapers recently published a news article on the Central Government’s plan to reduce the retirement age of employees from 60 to 58. This news shocked the central government employees.

   “Reducing the retirement age of central government employees from 60 to 58 will help to solve the unemployment problem in India?”

Reasons for decreasing the retirement age from 60 to 58:

The following reasons are attributed for decreasing the present age of retirement:

1) To create more employment opportunities for the youth

2) To increase the contribution of younger employees in the government sectors and

3) To compensate the loss accrued due to payment of allowances

Unemployment issue:

None can have any disagreement about the fact that employment opportunities should be provided for the unemployed. There are so many ways for solving the unemployment problem. They are:

1) Introducing new employment policies

2) Filling all the positions lying vacant and

3) Promoting self-employment by introducing new schemes and providing suitable facilities and many more ways can help to solve the problem of unemployment.

Increasing the retirement age from 60 to 62 for scientists:

In the Rajya Sabha, for a question raised on increasing the retirement age for scientists from 60 to 62 in written format, the response given was: “it is under consideration”.

The important reasons for increasing the retirement age for scientists are:

1) Their experience and expertise should benefit the younger generation and

2) The average life span has increased.

“Isn’t there a need to increase the retirement age of employees working in other fields?”

Allowance issue:

Extra allowance that has to be paid is cited as a reason for bringing down the retirement age of employees from 60 to 58. However, in reality, the pay commission is set up only once in 10 years and benefits the central government employees.

“In the long interval of 10 years, only these allowances help the employees to cope with inflation”.

In the past, the average service period of a central government employee was 30 to 40 years. Presently, as the age limit for appointment has been relaxed, the average service period has come down to 20 to 30 years. Due to this, an employee can only have 2 or 3 pay commissions in his service period.

In this situation, citing allowance as a reason for decreasing retirement age and altering the present allowance rates will adversely affect the economic condition of central government employees.

Average retirement age in the world:

The average retirement age of many nations is between 63 and 65. Comparatively speaking, even the age of 60 is obviously a very early age for retirement. In this context, we do not know whether the employees will accept 58 as the age of retirement.

Will early retirement solve the unemployment problem?

Employment for all is a very important. It is the duty of a nation to provide employment to all her youth and lead them in a better way. The hope and aspiration of every youth in this country is to get a good job. They do not expect the retirement age to be brought down from 60 to 58.

Aspirations of Pensioners regarding National Budget for 2015-16-Bharat Pensioners Samaj

Aspirations of Pensioners regarding National Budget for 2015-16-Bharat Pensioners Samaj

No BPS/SG/FM/014/1 Dated
01.12.2014
Hon’ble Shri Arun Jaitley ji,
Union Minister of Finance, Govt. of India,
134 North Block, New Delhi – 110001

Respected Sir,

Subject: Aspirations of Pensioners regarding National Budget for 2015-16

With hearty seasons’ Greetings, Bharat Pensioners Samaj, the largest representative Federation of Pensioners’ in the country, wish to place before you, the following aspirations of Pensioners’ in respect of the ensuing Union Budget.

Sir, Pensioners financial problems largely arise because most of us are products of the low cost economy era in our Country when Salaries and hence the pension and savings were meagre compared to present levels. Now even surviving with the dwindling returns on the already meagre savings/Pension and galloping inflation has become a challenge. Moreover, most of us suffer with age related health problems and health care has become so costly that we can hardly afford it, more so as the Govt, health schemes for retirees are grossly inadequate with limited coverage area. These are two situations on which we have no control.

Therefore, to merely survive in the present high cost economy we have to ask for some financial concessions and we earnestly request you to please consider these favourably.

1. Provide Rs500000/-basic Income Tax exemption to Sr. Citizens: Bharat Pensioners Samaj submits that for & up to F.Y.2004-2005 Sr. Citizen were getting, concession in income tax payable (under Section 88B) to the tune of Rs. 20000/-, as compared to other citizens with similar taxable income. In 2005-2006 this was changed, basic exemption for citizens was raised to Rs 100000/-& that for Sr Citizens it was made 185000/- This resulted in actual Tax relief of Rs 12000/- instead of Rs 20000/-. Thereafter it has been progressively reduced to just Rs5000/- further hitting hard the poor pensioners, the standard deduction was withdrawn through finance bill 2006.

Sir, Right from its inception, the basic I. tax exemption is related to cost of living. Where as in comparison to the year 2004-05 cost of food items have gone up by more than 6 times & that of health care has gone up more than 10times. I. Tax exemption in terms of Tax payable for 60+ Pensioners has gone down. In view of the facts quoted Bharat Pensioners Samaj appeal to Govt. of India to provide Rs 500000/-(five lac) basic Income Tax exemption to 60+Sr. Citizens/Pensioners and to Rs 800000/- for 80+ very / Sr. Citizen and that the standard deduction be restored for salaried class.

2. PENSION TO BE NET OF INCOME TAX: Purchase value of pension gets reduced day by day due to unbearable inflation and high rise in food items and cost of medical facilities. Retired persons/Sr Citizens do not enjoy fully, Public Goods and Services provided by Government for citizens, due to immobility and many other factors. Their ability to pay Tax gets reduced from year to year after retirement due to, ever increasing expenditure on food & medicines. Their net worth at year end gets reduced considerably as compared to the beginning of the year. Inflation, for a pensioner is much more than any Tax. It erodes the major part of already inadequate pension.

To enable pensioners, at the fag end of their lives, to live honourably Y to cater for ever rising cost of living, they be spare from paying Income Tax. Keeping in view the recommendation of 5th CPC vide their Para 167.11 Pension upto 500000/-(5lac) per-annum, should therefore, be paid net of income tax.

3. Tax deduction at source [TDS]: It is a fact that Sr. Citizens are often put to lot of mental stress and confusion as they are required to approach often repeatedly Income Tax offices for refund of Tax deducted at source despite their furnishing 15 “H” Form to the concerned authorities/Banks who still deducts TDS through inadvertence and oversight. It is therefore, that Senior Citizens Community may be excluded from the purview of TAX Deduction at Source. Under such arrangement, the taxpaying Sr. Citizens would obviously include the interest amount in their taxable incomes.

4 Raise Deposit Insurance Credit Guarantee to Rs.5.00 lakhs in case of Sr. Citizens: The pro-visions of Deposit Insurance Credit Guarantee Corporation may be suitably amended as ceiling for Rs. 1.00 laks is, long overdue for enhancement. It is suggested that the ceiling be raised to Rs.5.00 Lakhs per account in case of Sr citizens. The mechanism and procedure layout is stretched to a period of 2 to 3 years for payment of insurance settlement of balance amount as eligible in respect of failed financial institutions. For Senior Citizens, such a period is mentally harassing. To save them from such eventualities, it is suggested to provide that the affected St. Citizens, Orphans, Destitute, Widow etc. Would be paid forth with fifty percent of the balance amount or insurance amount whichever is more without waiting for the procedures or formalities to be fulfilled. Such provisions would ensure due protection to Sr. Citizens and would save them from mental uneasiness and anxieties arising out of inconvenience and fear of saving being blocked in the concerned financial institutions.

Sir, we have placed before you in brief out major financial aspirations. Considering the increasing span of life and limited resources at the disposal of Senior. Citizens/Pensioners, we feel confident that you will positively consider to translate the above aspirations into reality.

Sir, it is observed that before the Budget you arrange meetings with different sections of society to hear their views. We shall be thankful if you would consider us similarly so that there would be meaningful interaction to understand one another with relevant perspectives. We ardently look forward to your communication.

With Blessings from Elderly Community and regards

Yours faithfully,

S.C.Maheswari
Secretary General BPS

Payment of salary through Bank/ECS

Payment of salary through Bank/ECS

A.I.R.F.
ALL INDIA RAILWAYMEN’S FEDERATION
(Estd, 1924)

Shiva Gopal Mishra
(General Secretary)
New Delhi-110055
Dated: December 1,2014

.INDIA.D.O.No.AIRF/81

Dear Shri Mittal,

Sub: Payment of salary through Bank/ECS

Ref.: AM(Staff), Railway Board’s D.O. letter No.E(G)/2012/HO1-1 dated 29.09.2014

The Adviser(Staff), Railway Board, vide his D.O. letter under reference had advised Northern Railway to ensure 100% payment of salary through Cheque/ECS after 31.12.2014. In this connection, I would draw your attention towards Railway Board’s letter No.2007/AC-II/21/7 dated 18.06.2008, 2008/AC-II/21/9 dated 03.09.2008 and 2008/AC-II/21/ dated 19.09.2008.

It may be appreciated that the issue regarding payment of salary to non-gazetted staff has been deliberated repeatedly at Railway Board’s level by the AIRF, whereupon it has been time and again assured that no staff shall be compelled to draw salary through Bank/ECS. The staff shall only be motivated to open their accounts in bank and pursued to draw salary through bank.

It is a matter of regret that, arbitrary orders to make payment through Bank/ECS to all the staff on Northern Railway w.e.f. 01.01.2015 have been communicated aforementioned letter of the Adviser(Staff), Railway Board, which is a breach of bilateral settlement arrived at with this federation.

It is further petriment to mention here that there is serious resentment among the staff on some corners of Northern Railway, which may result in disturbance of industrial peace as well.

I would, therefore, request you to kindly issue clarification to Northern Railway, so that the staff is not compelled to draw salary through Bank/ECS but only motivated to do so, and those who are still willing to draw salary through cash may also be permitted to do so in the instrest of industrial harmony.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

With regards! Sincerely yours,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

Payment of Death Gratuity to a minor — regarding

Payment of Death Gratuity to a minor — regarding

No.7/3/2013-P&PW (F)
Ministry of Personnel, PG & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare

3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhavan,
Khan Market,
New Delhi-110003

Dated the, 2, December, 2014.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Payment of Death Gratuity to a minor — regarding

In accordance with the existing instructions, the payment of a portion of death gratuity could be made to the guardian, in the absence of a natural guardian, without production of a guardianship certificate. As per the existing orders, an amount of Rs.10,000/- (or the first Rs.10,000/- where amount exceeds Rs.10,000/-)in favour of a minor could be made to his/her guardian, in the absence of a natural guardian, without production of a formal guardianship certificate but subject to production of an indemnity bond.

2. The above issue has been examined and in modification of the above orders, it has been decided that the payment of death gratuity in respect of a minor to the extent of 20% or Rs.1.50 lakh, whichever is less may be paid to his/her guardian, in the absence of natural guardian, without the production of a formal guardianship certificate but subject to the production of an indemnity bond with suitable sureties. The balance in excess of 20% or Rs.1.50 lakhs, as the case may be, would become payable on the production of a certificate of guardianship.

3. It is essential however, that there should be adequate prima facie grounds for making payment as in paragraph 2 above, to the person claiming it. Such ground can exist only if he is shown by a declaration to be a de facto guardian and his bona fides have been ascertained. Even if a guardian has not yet been appointed by the Court, if the minor and his property are in the custody of some person, such person is in law a de facto guardian. The authorities making the payment, should, therefore, require the person who comes forward to claim payment on behalf of the minor, to satisfy themselves by a form that he is in charge of the property of the minor and is looking after it or that, if the minor has no property other than the gratuity, the minor is in his custody and care. The form so to be produced is in addition to the indemnity bond with suitable sureties.

4. The indemnity bond which is required to be produced by a de-facto guardian of minor(s) for payment of retirement/death gratuity to the extent of Rs.1.50 lakh or 20% whichever is less should be executed in the form appended below.

5. It has been decided that the stamp duty payable on the indemnity bond will be borne by the Government. The indemnity bond, should, therefore, be executed on any durable plain paper.

6. The indemnity bond should be signed by the obligor and the surety/sureties or their respective attorneys appointed by power(s) of attorney. The indemnity bond on behalf of the President should be accepted by an officer duly authorized under Article 229(1) of the Constitution.

7. In so far as the persons serving in the Indian audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders have been issued after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

8. This issues is with the concurrence of Department of Expenditure vide their ID not No.359/EV/014 dated 04.07.2014

 

9. Hindi Version will follow.
