7th CPC DA Calculation – Important factor of AICPI (IW) BY 2001 continue or not..?

7th CPC DA Calculation – Important factor of AICPI (IW) BY 2001 continue or not..?

 

Dearness Allowance is one of the important issues that the Pay Commission deals with. The calculation method that was recommended by the 6th Pay Commission was radically different from the ones suggested by all the previous Pay Commissions. Dearness Allowance, which was increasing by 1 or 2% until the 5th Pay Commission suddenly shot up to the peak of double-digit numbers.

 

Until the 5th CPC, the Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers 1982 = 100 was used for calculating dearness allowance. From the 6th Pay Commission onwards, CPI (IW) 2001=100 was used for calculating the DA.

 

There was another crucial change that the 6th CPC made. It recommended that the Reference Base Index be changed from 306.33. As a result, 115.76 became the new Reference Base Index from 01.01.2006 onwards.

 

Will the 7th CPC introduce a new CPI (IW)? Or will it bring about changes in the Reference Base Index?

 

This is something that everybody wants to know.

 

Just watch the difference between 5th and 6th CPC DA Calculation methods…

 

 

5th CPC calculation method is given below…

 

The extant formula for calculation of DA till 1-1-2004 was:

 

12 Monthly Average – 306.33
——————————————————–  x 100 = percentage increase in prices
306.33

 

The Fifth Pay Commission had recommended that DA should be converted into DP each time the CPI increased by 50% over the base index. The Government merged 50% of DA with the
basic pay w.e.f. 1-4-2004. The formula for calculation of DA for the period from 1-7-2004 is:

 

12 Monthly Average – 306.33
{  ————————————————  x 100} – 50 = percentage increase in prices
306.33

 

6th CPC calculation method is given below…

 

(12 Monthly Average) – 115.76
——————————————————–      x 100 = percentage increase in prices
115.76

Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion

Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion

DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year. These undesirable trends negate the very purpose of the above said Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 and it is also against the principle of natural justice.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: – Inclusion of eligible officers who are due to retire before the likely date of vacancies, in the panel for promotion-Regarding

The undersigned is directed to invite reference to the Department of Personnel and Training Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 regarding consideration of retired employees who were within the zone of consideration in the relevant year(s) but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held. The said OM provides as follows:-

“…….There is no specific bar in the aforesaid Office Memorandum dated April 10, 1989 or any other related instructions of the Department of Personnel and Training for consideration of retired employees, while preparing year-wise panel(s), who were within the zone of consideration in the relevant year(s). According to legal opinion also it would not be in order if eligible employees, who were within the zone of consideration for the relevant year(s) but are not actually in service when the DPC is being held, are not considered while preparing year-wise zone of consideration/panel and, consequently, their juniors are considered (in their places), who would not have been in the zone of consideration if the DPC(s) had been held in time. This is considered imperative to identify the correct zone of consideration for relevant Year(s). Names of the retired officials may also be included in the panel(s). Such retired officials would, however, have no justify for actual promotion. The DPC(s) may, if need be, prepare extended panel(s) following the principles prescribed in the Department of Personnel and  Training Office Memorandum No.22011/8/87-Estt.(D) dated April 9, 1996.”

Appointment Committee of Cabinet has observed that DPCs often do not consider such eligible officers who are retiring before the occurrence of the vacancy in the panel year. These undesirable trends negate the very purpose of the above said Office Memorandum No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998 and it is also against the principle of natural justice.

3. All the Ministries/Departments are therefore advised to ensure strict compliance of the instructions of the Department of Personnel & Training issued vide this Department’s OM No. 22011/4/98-Estt(D) dated October 12, 1998.

4. These instructions may please be brought out to the notice of all concerned including attached and subordinate offices.

Estimated 7th CPC Pay Scale with a Touch of Fiction

Estimated 7th CPC Pay Scale with a Touch of Fiction

Everybody has the justify to let their imagination run wild before an official announcement is made..! Its impact differs based on the number of people who eagerly await the announcement.

The 7th Central Pay Commission, constituted by the Central Government, is busy formulating its recommendations for the new pay scale. Constant stream of information has confirmed that the 7th Pay Commission, chaired by Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur, is working at an astonishing pace. After receiving memorandums from all the leading employee federations, the Commission is now touring the entire country in order to gather opinions. The tour began in June and continues till date. The Commission is involved in visiting pre-determined cities and talking to the various Central Government employee associations and individuals in order to hear their opinion.

The Centre has given the Commission 18 months time to present its recommendations. The Commission was constituted on February 4, 2014, the Terms and Reference for the committee given on February 28. This means that the 18-month duration ends in August 2015.

Since nearly half the duration has ended, we can now expect some rapid action from the Commission in preparing the recommendations. Meanwhile, in order to cater to the expectations of employees who are curious to know what the Commission has in store for them, many websites and blogs are competing with each other to give their own possible list of recommendations of revised pay scale and allowances. Reactions from Central Government employees like shock, surprise, jubilation and disappointment are unavoidable.

Yet, not all estimates go completely wrong.

NPS is far beneficial than Government Pension

GConnect has published an article titled, ‘NPS is far beneficial than Government Pension’

GConnect has published an article titled, ‘NPS is far beneficial than Government Pension’ – Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension

A very popular website among Central Government employees, GConnect, which began functioning more than 8 years ago, continues to be a strong line of communication between the Central Government and its employees.

The article that was published yesterday seeks to answer critics who claim that the new pension scheme is outright bad. GConnect has made it very clear that the opinions expressed in the article belong to its writer, Mr. Dorai, Deputy Director, ESIC Model Hospital and that the website doesn’t necessarily subscribe to them.

The ‘study report,’ that compares the salient features of the old(Central Government Pension Scheme) and new pension schemes, is bound to create controversies.

While various Central Govt employees associations and federations are putting pressure on the Government to withdraw the new pension scheme and enforce the previous one, we believe that this article is going to make a huge impact.

The writer begins the article by stating that those who are opposing the new pension scheme, with more benefits than the old pension scheme, are doing so due to their ignorance. The article also explains how the new pension scheme could create huge wealth.

The report gives as an example, the case of an employee who joins the Central Government employment as a Upper Division Clerk(UDC) in 2014 and retires after 35 years service, in 2049. The report gives a comparative study of how the pension fund grow each of these 35 years. The study also assumes a regular dearness allowance of 6% every six months, and an annual increment of 3%.

The study also assumes that, at an interval of 10 years, the employee gets 3 promotions during his service tenure. Most importantly, it is assumed that matching the employee’s contribution, the Government’s contribution too would witness an 8.7% increase per annum.

At the time of retirement, the employee is likely to get Rs. 2,87,26,201, which is split into two shares – 40% and 60%, which amounts to Rs. 1,14,90,481, and Rs. 1,72,35,720, respectively. 60% of the lumpsum pension wealth is given at the time of retirement. The remaining 40% is invested in an annuity scheme.

It is stated that the monthly pension will be a minimum Rs. 83,306. In addition to this, at the age of 70, the employee gets the remaining 40% back. The article strongly claims that this money could be the gift that the person leaves behind for his future generation.

The article’s highlight feature is the claim that if the Pay Commission recommendations are taken into account, the amount could be much higher and that the UDC could get as much as Rs. 5 crores at the time of retirement.

According to the old Govt pension scheme, the employee’s monthly pension amount would be Rs. 1,00,934, and after his demise, his spouse would get Rs. 10,317 plus Dearness Allowance. After his/her death, there are no more benefits for the family.

The article is indirectly stating that the absence of gratuity and other such benefits is not a huge issue. According to the old Govt pension scheme, at the time of retirement, the employee would make only Rs. 38,32,550, which is Gratuity (16.5 months) + EL Encashment + Commutation.

While discussing the General Provident Fund (GPF), the article assumes that since nobody leaves anything much in this fund, its overall impact on the total pension fund would be minimal.

The writer concludes his article by declaring that those who oppose the new pension scheme lack intelligence.

MACP on Hierarchy: DoPT’s clarification in view of Tribunal/Court Judgement through Railway Board

MACP on Hierarchy: DoPT’s clarification in view of Tribunal/Court Judgement through Railway Board

Railway Board has cited the DoP&T advice in the matter of grant of 3rd financial upgradation on promotion hierarchy under MACP Scheme on the reference made by AIRF:-

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(Railway Board)

No PC-V/2011/M/3/AIRF

New Delhi, dated 13.11.2014

The General Secretary
AIRF
4, State Entry Road,
New Delhi-110055

Sir,
Sub:- 3rd financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

The undersigned is directed to refer to AlRF’s letter No.AlRF/MACP/2014 (302), dated 07.10.2014 and to state the matter has already been consulted with DoP&T, the nodal department of Govt. on MACPS, and they have advised as under:

As regards the Order dated 31.05.2011 in CA No. 1038/CH/2010 (Raj Pal vs UOI) of Hon’ble CAT, Chandigarh which was upheld by the High Court and Apex Court, it may be stated that the Apex Court has not considered the issue on merit. The said SLP was dismissed due to insufficient explanation to condone the delay in the filing of the SLP. As regards implementation of CAT Order dated 9.5.2012 in GA No. 141/2012, the administrative Department was advised for implementation for the petitioners only subject to outcome of Review Petition in view of Contempt case. It may also be stated that generally the judgments passed by Hon’ble Tribunals/Courts are applicable/implemented to the specific case, unless there is any direction for similar dispensation to be extended to similarly placed persons. Hence, the above Orders pronounced favoring the applicants by the Tribunal/Courts and implemented on attaining finality or due to contempt or due to any other reason may be taken as exceptions/aberration.
In the matter, DOP&T have advised to maintain status quo with regard to the provisions for grant of MACPS benefits. It may be clarified that financial upgradations under MACPS would continue to be granted in the successive grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay band and grade pay as given in Section 1, Part-a of the first Schedule of the Railway Services (Revised Pay), Rules, 2008 and not in the promotional hierarchy, where functional promotion are allowed in the same Grade Pay, MACP benefits would also be regulated in the Grade Pay only.

Since, DoP&T is the nodal department on MACP Scheme and financial upgradation under the Scheme are regulated as per instructions/clarifications issued by them from time to time. In view of the above, it is not feasible to deviate from the instructions issued by the nodal deptt. on the subject viz. DoP&T.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
for Secretary/Railway

Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension

Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension

The Central Government employees who have joined after 1/1/2004 and are put under National Pension Scheme(NPS)  have been demanding abolition of NPS and have been persuading the Central Government to make the government pension scheme applicable to them.

This only exhibits their ignorance of the fact that the New Pension Scheme is highly lucrative and make the government employees who joined after 1/1/2004 far richer than the government employees who enjoy government pension scheme.  By doing so they are in the process of ruining the great fortunes that lies in store under New Pension Scheme. Let me compare both the scheme:

Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension

Benefits under NPS

Let me take a case of Upper Division Clerk(UDC) who joins government service in 2014 at the age of 25  and renders 35 years  of service till attaining 60 years of age. He / She gets 3% annual increment every year and gets one promotion every 10 year under M.A.C.P.  Although he / she is likely to get 14 to 20% increase in D.A every year as per Consumer Price Index I just take 12%(assuming 6 + 6%) 2 times D.A in a year

* MACP / Promotion Years

(A) Therefore, the total pension wealth of a government servant who joined in 2014 and retiring under New Pension Scheme shall at the time of his retirement be Rs. 2,87,26,201/-

(B) 60% of the lump-sum pension wealth which he / she will be  getting on retirement:

Rs.1,72,35.720

(C) 40%   invested in an annuity scheme  which he / she can receive before 70 years:

Rs.1,14,90,481

(D) Earned Leave Encashment:  Rs. 215625 x 10 months        : Rs.   21,56,250

TOTAL of (A) (B) (C) and (D) will be            Rs. 3,08,82,451

Death Gratuity:

Although not entitled for retirement gratuity, but eligible for Death Gratuity  If died during the service

Monthly Pension:

At the assumed Interest at the rate of 8.7% per annum on  the other 40%  of pension wealth of Rs.1,14,90,481  invested in annuity shall fetch

monthly pension of  at least  :            Rs.83,306/ –

Not only this, before he / she attains the age of 70 he / she can withdraw the remaining  40% of his pension wealth of Rs. 1,14,90,481/- which if invested in Fixed Deposit of a nationalised bank can fetch interest and take care of not only of his wife and children but his descendants also for generations to come.

This is just a tip of the iceberg. If we consider the other  4 pay commission benefits that materialize on 1/1/2016, 1/1/2026, 1/1/2036 and 1/1/2046 which a NPS pensioner who joins as UDC shall be getting  before his retirement in 2049,his total pension wealth will be undoubtedly double the above amount which comes to more than Rs.5 crores. While a person who joins as U.D.C. gets this much, one will be rocked out of stupor to know what a Group A officer who renders 35 years of service may get – undoubtedly his total pensionwealth will be more than Rs.10 crores.

Benefits under Central Government Pension Scheme

Now let us see what will be the retirement benefits of the above person if he / she is put in government pension scheme:

1.Gratuity for 16.5 months :

Rs.2,15,625 x 16.5 months = Rs.35,57,812/- Restricted to  Rs.10,00,000

2. Earned Leave Encashment:

Rs. 215625 x 10 months :     Rs.21,56,250

3. Pension Commutation:

Rs.17195 x 40% = Rs.6878 x 12 x  8.194 years   Rs  6,76,300

Total Benefits under Central Government Pension Scheme:         Rs.38,32,550

4. GPF Balance:

As it is a general tendency of the government servants to withdraw from GPF frequently, there will be very little left at the time of retirement

5. Monthly pension

i) Rs.34390 / 2    =  Rs.17195 (basic pension being 50% of pay and grade pay Less 40% of basic pension towards commutation (Rs 6878) which will be restored after 15 years

Balance basic pension       is Rs. 10317

ii) DA @ 527% of basic pension of Rs.17195  = Rs. 90617 (subject to increase in DA every 6 months based on consumer price index)

Total pension                        is Rs.1,00,934 per month.

After the death of government servant  say after 67 years, spouse can take only 60% of the basic pension i.e.Rs.17195 x 60% = Rs.10317 plus D.A.at the prevailing rates. After spouse’s death children are unlikely to draw the pension as they would have already crossed the age limit.  Thus, unlike the dependents of NPS pensioners, there will be nothing left for financial security  of the dependents of the government pensioners .

Thus it is unwise on the part of government servants who have joined after 1/1/2004 to demand for abolition of NPS scheme and grant of government pension.
