January Salary Of Central Employees To Follow Higher Allowances: Finance Ministry

January Salary Of Central Employees To Follow Higher Allowances: Finance Ministry

Report says that a top official of the finance ministry today told on condition of anonymity that Central government employees salaries for January will be in line with the higher allowances.

When asked whether the arrears would be paid too, he said, “This depends on the cabinet. If the cabinet gives the nod higher allowances with retrospective effect from August 2016, the arrears will be paid.”

“The government faces severe attack for cash crunch because of demonetisation. But the situation will return to normalcy after the deadline of December 30 for deposit of invalid Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.”

He added, “It’s better if delayed till sufficient cash is available with the banks.”

The government in June approved the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for its employees with higher basic pay, which has been paid with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016 but the hike in allowances other than dearness allowance referred to the ‘Committee on Allowances’ headed by the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa for examination as as the pay commission had recommended of abolishing 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances.

Until acceptance of higher allowances, existing allowances are to be paid according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations, says an earlier official statement issued by the finance ministry.

However, the committee on allowances head Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa said recently, “We are ready to submit our report, when the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley calls up.”

Income Tax Exemption Calculation for Interest paid on Housing Loan

Revised Income Tax Exemption Calculator for Interest paid on Housing Loan – Income or Loss or House Property Calculation under Section 24 of the Income Tax Act.

After enactment of Finance Act 2014, maximum housing loan interest amount (Interest on house property) which can be deducted from the income of a tax payer under Section 24 of the Income Tax Act in respect of self occupied house, is Rs. 2 Lakhs (Rs. 2,00,000).

Also there is no limit specified for deduction of home loan interest amount from income in the case of House property being rented out.

How to calculate Income / loss on House Property (Deduction of Home Loan Interest from Total Income) ?

In the case of Self Occupied House Property:

Actual annual value of Interest paid on Home loan or Rs. 2,00,000 whichever is maximum

In the case of House Property rented out:

  1. Actual annual value of Interest paid on Home loan
  2. Add annual rental value of the house property
  3. Less House property Tax paid
  4. Less Rebate 30% of the Annual Value of Rent as Repairs and Maintenance

As per Finance Act 2016, the tax payer is entitled to claim additional deduction of Rs. 50,000 under Section 80 EE if you are a first time home buyern interest. This deduction is over and above the Rs 2 lakhs limit under section 24 of the income tax act. Read more about deduction of Rs 2 lakhs on interest on home loan here.

Submission of Pre-budget Views of Central Government Employees – Confederation

Submission of Pre-budget Views of Central Government employees for consideration and inclusion in the Central Budget for the year 2017-18 – Request – Regarding

REF: CONFDN/BUDGET/2016-17

DATED  -12-2016

To,
Shri. Arun Jaitley,
Hon’ble Finance Minister,
Government of India,
North Block, New Delhi – 110001

Sub: Submission of Pre-budget Views of Central Government employees for consideration and inclusion in the Central Budget for the year 2017-18 – Request – Regarding.

Respected Sir,

Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers is the umbrella organization comprising of various Unions/Associations/Federations of the Central Government employees. Central Government employees are the important segment of the society and contributing for the growth of this country through effective implementation of the policies of the Government of India. Hence, the views of this segment of important stakeholders, I submit, may also be heard and considered. With this request, this organization is bringing the following views for consideration by your good self, as a part of the pre-budget exercise to finalize the budget for the year 2017-18.

Issues of the Central Government employees:

1. New Pension Scheme: Lakhs of employees who joined the Central Government Departments on or after 01-04-2004 are vulnerable to the market fluctuations due to the NPS. It has been pleaded several times to scrap this NPS or grant guarantee of minimum pension at the rate of 50% of last pay drawn. It is requested to concede this request in this budget by making required amendments.

2. Income Tax: It is submitted that Government employees are the most tax compliant segment of the society. At the same time they are the hard hit with heavy tax burden. For many years it is requested to raise the tax exemption limit. It is requested to consider increasing the tax exemption limit for employees to Rs. 5,00,000/-. It is also requested not to include the compensatory allowances in the taxable income.

3. Interest concession on loans and advances: Nationalized Banks are extending housing loans, personal loans for their employees at a lesser rate than the market rate. This facility may also be extended to the Central Government employees.

4. Education loans to the Children of the Central Government employees: In the present set up no bank is giving education loans for pursuing higher studies without keeping immovable property as collateral security. One has to cross many hassles for obtaining education loan for his ward. It is requested that education loan for the ward of a Central Government employee should be hassle free and without any guarantee or collateral security except the employee himself/herself. The total loan should cover the entire fee and living expenses without any restrictions.

5. Minimum Wage & Fitment formula: The minimum wage of Rs.18000/- recommended by 7th CPC is needed to be revised to Rs.26000/- to confirm to the realistic and accepted norms of the wage determination. Accordingly the fitment factor should also be proportionately changed.

6. Curtailment of litigation: Presently due to the policy of DOP&T the Central Government employees are forced to engage in avoidable litigation in the Courts of Law, even on those similar Service matters, which were decided by the Highest Court of the Land. This is resulting in lot of expenditure of Government employees. The judgments of the Courts should be applied to all the similarly placed employees without forcing them to file cases on the very matter.

7. Compassionate appointments: The eligible wards of the employees who died in harness should be given employment by removing the present artificial ceiling of 5% on such employment.

8. Housing needs of the employees working in N.E and Assam Circles: The employees working in these States are facing hardship due to lack of housing facilities. Hence, it is requested to construct more General Pool Resident staff quarters for all the Central Government employees working in N.E. and Assam regions.

9. It is also requested that cash less and Hassle free Medical facilities to serving and retired employees for in-patient and out-patient may also be favourably considered.

General Issues:

Central Trade Unions in their Memorandum dated 19-11-2016 has brought several issues like price raise, strengthening the Public Distribution System, safeguarding the Public Sector, Foreign Direct Investment, employment generation, Same Pay for Same Work, Social Security for unorganized workers, Labour Law Reforms, regularization of Contract and Casual Labour, which has a bearing on the lives of the common masses, employees and workers. This Federation completely endorses their viewpoint on these important issues and requests you to kindly initiate necessary corrective steps in this Budget.

It is earnestly requested to seriously consider the above suggestions for inclusion in the Budget for the year 2017-18, which will go a long way in fulfilling the long pending aspirations of the Central Government employees.

Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,
(M. Krishnan)
Secretary General

Processing of Pension cases mandatorily through Bhavishya (Online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System) w.e.f 01/01/2017

Processing of Pension cases mandatorily through Bhavishya (Online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System) w.e.f 01/01/2017 – reg.

3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan,

Dated: 29th November, 2016

 

OFFICE MEMEORANDUM

Sub: Processing of Pension cases mandatorily through Bhavishya (Online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System) w.e.f 01/01/2017 – reg.

Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare is responsible for formulation of policy and coordination of matters relating to pension policy and welfare of Central Government pensioners. It has been seen that despite detailed guidelines and instructions to the contrary a large proportion of retiring employees do not get their retirement benefits and the Pension Payment Order(PPO) in time. It is likely that such retired employees find it difficult to get the process completed after retirement. The sanction process starts more than a year before the date of retirement and requires cooperation amongst various agencies. This department has, therefore, launched Bhavishya – an online pension sanction and payment tracking system. The system by keeping track of the progress of each case introduces transparency and accountability. Both the retiring employees as well as administrative authorities can monitor progress at each stage.

2. The system has been running successfully in the main Secretariat of all ministries/departments for the last one year. It has since been extended to cover over 3000 Drawing and Disbursing Officers and Pay and Accounts Offices from various ministries/departments and their attached offices.

3. It has now been decided that all Heads of Offices will henceforth mandatorily process all pension cases only through Bhavishya. In this, where necessary, they will assist the retiring employee to submit the online application form. The Pay and Accounts Offices will process cases generated through Bhavishya through the pension module in COMPACT till the Public Financial Management System(PFMS) is made operational and integrated with Bhavishya.

4. It is to be noted that all authorities will strictly follow the timelines prescribed under the CCS(Pension) Rules and in no case will the pension case be delayed on account of electronic processing through Bhavishya.

5. These instructions take effect from 1st January, 2017.

6. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

Dated: November 28, 2016

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Brief of the meeting held on 28.11.2016 with the Committee on Allowances

A meeting in the matter of Allowances related to the Railways was held today under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Finance), Government of India and others. Staff Side was headed by the undersigned and Com. M. Raghavaiah, General Secretary NFIR.

The discussion was initiated by me.

At the outset, I reminded the Committee, specifically the Finance Secretary, that strike situation was averted by the government by deputing three Cabinet Ministers, viz. Hon’ble Home Minister, Hon’ble Finance Minister and Hon’ble Railway Minister. On 29th June, 2016, the government issued notification and this was firmed-up by another notification on 06.07.2016 issued by the Ministry of Finance(Deptt. of Exp.). The government took four months time to decide the issues of Minimum Wage, Pay Fixation Formula, Allowances and National Pension System(NPS) etc. I pointed out that, “four months time is running out, so the reports of these committees should be published and all the allowances should be revised and sanctioned w.e.f. 01.01.2016. The matter of Breakdown Allowance, Coal Pilot Allowance, Commercial Allowance (Flag Station Allowance), i.e. Gate Allowance, Rajdhani Express Allowance, Risk Allowance, Sumptuary Allowance to Trainers, which has been abolished by the VII CPC, should be allowed to be continued”.

The matter of positive recommendations of the VII CPC in respect of granting of Train Controllers Allowance, Track Maintenance Allowances were elaborately discussed by the undersigned, pointing out that, the significance of these categories was elaborately highlighted. In addition, Additional Allowance to Running Staff was explained in detail, demanding its extension to Loco Pilot and Guards(Goods). It was also pointed out that, in the event of any train accident, Loco Pilot and Asstt. Loco Pilot are equally responsible. Difficult condition of the Goods Guard was also explained in greater detail. It was also demanded that those allowances should be extended to all the categories of Loco & Traffic Running Staff and the same should be counted for pensionery benefits. In respect of non-appearance of certain allowances in the report of the VII CPC, the vagaries of the life of the personnel working in the National Projects were also highlighted, including Officiating Allowance, Risk Allowance etc.

The undersigned also impressed upon the Committee, especially the Secretary (Finance), that, positive recommendations of the committee should be published and all decisions in respect of allowances should take retrospective effect w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

Following agenda items were discussed and decisions taken:

1. Agenda Item No. 1-A: Pending cases of revision under OM dated 6th April, 2016: Delinking of revised pension from qualifying service of 33 years:

It was observed that total 88,550 cases were due for revision. Out of that 61,778 cases were already revised. However, still 26772 cases (30%) were pending for revision. Out of these cases, 2551 2 cases (95%) were pending with 9 ministries/ departments i.e. Home Affairs (23,307), Atomic Energy, Prasar Bharti, CBEC, I&B, Agriculture, HIED, Civil Aviation and Supply. Vide various OMs issued by CPAO, concerned CCAs/CAs were requested to revise pending cases urgently. CGA directed to finalize all the pending cases within one month. PAO wise pendencies were reviewed specifically for MHA & Atomic Energy and they were advised to regularly review the status with their high pendency PAOs.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/ CAs

2. Agenda Item No. 1-B: Status of revision of pending Pre-2006 pension cases

It was observed that total 4617 cases of Pre-2006 (1,199 of Pre-2006 & 3,418 of Pre-90) were pending for revision in civil Ministries/Departments. Highest pendencies pertained to Home Affairs (963), Atomic Energy (442), CBEC, HRD, and Prasar Bharti. It was informed by the CCAs/CAs that these cases are pending due to non-availability of required information either with PAOs or with HOOs & Banks in spite of all out efforts made. Following points decisions were taken:

(i) CPAO to prepare fresh list of live pending cases on the basis of e-scrolls received which may reduce the number of pending cases. This list would be provided to the concerned Ministries/Departments to again review the pendency and check the availability of records. If records are not available even after this exercise, the certificate of non availability of records would be furnished by concerned CCAs/CAs to CPAO to enable it to take further necessary action. If any pensioner represents for revision of his/her pension in future the same would be revised on the basis of records provided by him/her subject to verification of the record.

(ii) The above list would also be provided to concerned pension disbursing banks to check the genuineness of these pensioners on the basis of KYC records available with them and get the relevant records required for revision for such pensioners. The banks will also be asked to furnish the copies of life certificates received from these pensioners to CPAO by 15th Feb, 2017.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/CAs, CPAO and Banks

3. Agenda Item Number-2: Delay in receipt of fresh PPOs

It was observed that only 29 percent of fresh PPOs were received in CPAO from PAOs before the date of retirement of government servants. All the CCAs/CAs present in the meeting informed that delay in finalizing fresh pension cases is because of late submission of pension papers by the HOOs to concerned PAOs. However, status of Atomic Energy was quite satisfactory where 85% fresh PPOs were received before the date of retirement. The Joint CA, Atomic Energy informed that they are regularly reviewing the status of receipt of fresh pension cases with the department and in case of any problem; they are holding the meetings with senior officers so that timely receipt of cases in PAOs may be ensured. CGA appreciated the efforts of Atomic Energy and advised other CCAs/CAs also to take up the matter regularly with concerned Administrative Authorities i.e. HODs/DOOs/DDOs for receiving the pension cases in PAOs as per prescribed time schedule and use the dashboards provided under WRPS to monitor the delays.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/ CAs

4. Agenda Item Number-3: Seeding of Aadhaar

Significant progress was observed in respect of Aadhaar Seeding in fresh PPOs by the Ministries/Departments as overall seeding percentage had reached 61%. Ministries/Departments where seeding percent was low were Home Affairs, PPG and Supply. In some Ministries/Departments, like Health & Family Welfare, HRD, Prasar Bharti and UD seeding was more than 90%, CCA, MHA was requested to ensure increasing the number of Aadhaar seeding in fresh PPOs as the low percentage of IVIHA had brought down overall percentage very significantly. Representative of PPG&P pointed out that low percentage of Aadhaar seeding in PPG&P was due to low Aadhaar seeding by Director of Accounts, Cabinet Secretariat (DACS) which uses PAO code of PPG&P but they are not in the administrative control of CA, PPG&P. On this issue, it was decided that while CPAO may take up the matter with DACS; PPG&P was also advised to coordinate with DACS to resolve this issue on regular basis. Most of the CCAs/CAs informed that PAOs are indicating Aadhaar numbers in fresh PPOs wherever the same is made available by the concerned HOOs and efforts are made to make it 100%.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/CAs

5. Agenda Item Number-4: Web Responsive Pensioners Service:

A. Grievances: Under WRPS, total 570 grievances were received, out of that 375 pertained to the concerned 15 ministries. Out of these 375 grievances, 70 grievances were replied back by PAOs to CPAO and 56 settled. 305 grievances were still pending with PAOs. CGA advised all concerned CCAs/CAs to review the status of pending grievances through WRPS on weekly basis and settle the grievances in time bound manner. CC (P) also requested CCAs/CAs to regularly review the pending grievances available under their dashboards under WRPS and ensure not to allow any pendency beyond 30 days. All the CCAs/CAs assured to regularly review the pending grievances and take necessary action to bring down the number of pending grievances.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/ CAs

B. Quarterly List of retiring Employees: Lists of only 1734 retiring employees were uploaded so far by the PAOs of concerned Ministries/Departments. Since annually about 35 thousand of fresh pension cases are received in CPAO, this small number of uploading of lists showed that still either many PAOs are not uploading complete lists of retiring employees or not uploading at all.

To ensure the timely submission of list of retirees by the HOOs to the concerned PAOs the CCAs/CAs present in the meeting were advised to take up the matter with their HODs on regular basis to get the complete list of retiring employees wherever the same is not being provided by the HOOs. CGA advised CCAs/CAs to pay special attention to those PAOs where details of not even single employee has been uploaded so far.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/ CAs

6. Agenda Item Number-5: Discrepancies in the bookie of Expenditure under Pension grant:

It was observed that there were many discrepancies in the booking of expenditure under pension grant No.35 in the year-2016-17 (up to 2nd quarter) by many Ministries/Departments i.e. expenditure in excess of budget, expenditure without budget, misclassification between charged and voted expenditure, expenditure booked in minus etc. An OM dated 11.11.2016 with details of discrepancies had already been issued to CCAs/CAs. All concerned CCAs/CAs were advised to regularly review the booking of expenditure under various heads of pension grant in their Ministries/Departments with the help of reports available under e-lekha/PFMS and ensure to avoid any discrepancies in booking under pension grant.

Action: All Concerned CCAs/ CAs

7. During the meeting, CCA, Home Affairs and CA, Agriculture requested CC (P) to organize workshop for their pension processing PAOs in CPAO on WRPS and various pension related issues. It was agreed that workshop for PAOs of Ministry of Agriculture would be organized on 18th November, 2016 and for MHA on 1st December, 2016 at CPAO.

Dear Sir,
Withdrawal of cash from bank deposit accounts – Relaxation

It has been reported that certain depositors are hesitating to deposit their monies into bank accounts in view of the current limits on cash withdrawals from accounts.

2. As it is impeding active circulation of currency notes, it has been decided, on careful consideration, to allow withdrawals of deposits made in current legal tender notes on or after November 29, 2016 beyond the current limits; preferably, available higher denominations bank notes of Rs. 2000 and Rs. 500 are to be issued for such withdrawals.

Yours faithfully,

Effect of Penalties on Promotion – DOPT Guidelines

Effect of Penalties on Promotion – Role of Department Promotion Committee Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion

DoPT OM on the Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion

No.22011/4/2007-Estt.(D)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public and Training
(Department of Personnel and Training)
North Block, New Delhi – 110 011

 

November 21, 2016

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Guidelines on treatment of effect of penalties on promotion – role of Departmental Promotion Committee

The Department of Personnel & Training vide its OM of even number dated 28.4.2014 issued instructions on the above subject. Paragraph 7(d), 7(f) and 7(g) of the said OM provides as follows:

7(d)

If the official under consideration is covered under any of the three condition mentioned in paragraph 2 of OM dated 14.9.1992, the DPC will assess the suitability of Government servant along with other eligible candidates without taking into consideration the disciplinary case / criminal prosecution pending. The assessment of the DPC including ‘unfit’ for promotion and the grading awarded are kept in a sealed cover. [Paragraph 2.1 of DoPT OM dated 14.9.1992]

7(f)

If any penalty is imposed on the Government servant as a result of the disciplinary proceedings or if he / she is found guilty in the criminal prosecution against him / her, the findings of the sealed cover / covers shall not be acted upon. His / her case for promotion may be considered by the next DPC in the normal course and having regard to the penalty imposed on him / her [paragraph 3.1 of DoPT OM dated 14.9.1992].

7(g)
In assessing the suitability of the officer on whom a penalty has been imposed, the DPC will take into account the circumstances leading to the imposition of the penalty and decide whether in the light of general service record of the officer and the fact of imposition of penalty, the officer should be considered for promotion. The DPC, after due consideration, has authority to assess the officer as ‘unfit’ for promotion. However, where the DPC considers that despite the penalty the officer is suitable for promotion, the officer will be actually promoted only after the currency of the penalty is over [paragraph 13 of DoPT OM dated 10.4.1989].
2. Questions have been raised by the Ministries and Departments asking whether this is applicable in the case of ‘Censure‘ also. In this regard, it is reiterated that paragraphs 7(d), 7(f) and 7(g) cited above are applicable in all the recognized penalties under CCS (CCA) Rules including the minor penalty of Censure as well for which no currency has been prescribed, it would mean that as per para 7(g), if the DPC considers the officer fit for promotion notwithstanding the award of censure, he / she can be promoted without referring to the currency of penalty.

(TO BE ANSWERED ON 16.11.2016)

CREAMY LAYER

139. SHRI GANESH SINGH:
Will the PRIME MINISTER be pleased to state:

(a) whether the previous Government had set aside the report of first creamy layer expert committee and the Department of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions issued an official memorandum No. 36033/5/2004- Est.

(e) the number of OBC candidates declared disqualified for IAS and other services on the basis of this memorandum from 2004 till date?

ANSWER

Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office. (DR JITENDRA SINGH)

(a) to (c): The DOPT Office Memorandum (O.M.) No. 36033/5/2004-Estt(SCT) dated 14 October, 2004 is only a clarification explaining the provisions of DOPT O.M. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) dated 8.9.1993. The O.M. of 8.9.1993 was issued by the DOPT based on the recommendations of an Expert Committee constituted by the then Ministry of Welfare.

The earlier unsigned typed copy of the English version of the O.M. dated 14.10.2004, uploaded on the website of this Department, had certain discrepancies in respect of Paragraph 9 vis-a vis its Hindi version uploaded on the Department’s website. It was, therefore, felt necessary to rectify that discrepancy. Subsequently, the signed version of the O.M. was traced and uploaded on the Department’s website and now it is seen that there is no error in Paragraph 9 of the English version of the O.M. dated 14.10.2004 vis-a vis the Hindi version.

(d) & (e): In case of recommendation of name of a candidate by UPSC for service allocation, the candidate is considered for allocation to one of those services by the Government for which he has indicated his preference as per Civil Services Examination Rules and extant instruction on the subject.

Subject: Agitational Programme to be held from 05.12.2016 to 09.12.2016.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is hoped that all of you are well and busy in accelerating trade union activities. Under the banner of Government Employees National Confederation, we continuously demanded for removal of anomalies related to pay fixation, bonus, income tax, recommendations of Pay Commissions but the Governments did not pay any heed to our genuine demands and it is leading discontentment amongst the employees. Therefore, Government Employees National Confederation has decided that all the constituent Federation of GENC will observe an agitation programme throughout the country from 05.12.2016 to 09.12.2016.

Being a constituent of GENC, this federation BPMS has decided that all the affiliated unions will organize agitation programme from 05.12.2016 to 09.12.2016 like Gate Meeting, Slogan Shouting, Dharna etc. On 09.12.2016 a memorandum should be submitted to their respective Heads of the establishment addressed to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India mentioning the following demands:

1. Minimum Pay should be fixed Rs 24,000/- and fitment formula should be 3.42 in place of 2.57.

2. Under MACP Scheme, 05 financial upgradation should be granted in promotional hierarchy in the service of 30 years.

3. Annual Increment should be @ 5% in place of 3%.

4. The Benchmark ‘very good’ should be abolished for granting of promotion, financial upgradation and annual increment.

5. The Grade pay of Group ‘C’ Rs 1900/- and Rs 2000/- should be merged and upgraded to Rs 2400/-.

6. HRA should be paid @ 35, 25 and 15% of pay.

7. New Pension Scheme should be scraped.

8. FDI should be scraped in Defence and Railway.

9. Bonus should be calculated on Rs 18,000/- in place of 7,000/- because minimum pay has been enhanced from 7,000/- to 18,000/-.

10. Income tax exemption limit (tax free income) should be extended to Rs 8,00,000/-.

11. The wards of employees died in harness should be guaranteed with 100% compassionate ground appointments.

Thanking you

Sincerely yours

Grant of Advance for Cancer treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Hospitals / Private Nursing Home under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules

Grant of Advance for Cancer treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Hospitals / Private Nursing Home under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules

REF: BPMS / MH&FW / Advance / 156 (8/1/L)

Dated: 25.11.2016

To,
The Secretary,
Govt. of India, Min. of Health & Family Welfare,
156 – A, Nirman Bhawan,
New Delhi 110001.

Subject: Grant of Advance for Cancer treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Hospitals / Private Nursing Home under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules.

Respected Sir,
Considering the hardships being faced by cancer patient, vide O.M. No.1967/2013/DEL/CGHS/SZ/D52/CGHS(P) , Dated 30.12.2014 Department of Health & Family Welfare, CGHS (Policy) Division delegated the powers to HOD’s for permission / ex-post facto approval for cancer treatment taken in non-empanelled hospitals subject to reimbursement being restricted to CGHS rates or actual expenditure, whichever is less.

Further, as per O.M. No. s.12020/4/97-CGHS (P), Dated 07.03.2000 of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (Department of Health) the Heads of Departments (HODs) may decide the cases of reimbursement of medical claims in respect of treatment obtained in emergency at private hospitals/private nursing home/private clinic, subject to item-wise ceiling as per rates prescribed for CGHS beneficiaries without financial limit on the total amount to be reimbursed.

Now, it has been experienced that a government employee covered under CGHS / CS(MA) Rules and resides in Kanpur, obtains the permission of Head of Department for treatment in Non-Empanelled Private Nursing Home/Hospital (for example Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre, New Delhi). After surgical treatment of Cancer, he needs post operative treatment (Chemotherapy) and he wants to continue his treatment from the same non-empanelled private nursing home/hospital. But the HOD refuses to grant advance for post operative treatment on the plea that advance may be granted in emergency for treatment in non-empanelled private nursing home and post operative treatment of cancer (Chemotherapy) does not fall under the category of emergency. In absence of advance, such employee finds himself unable to get treated and cured and that add insult to injury.

In such circumstances, you are requested to issue necessary orders so that the beneficiaries covered under CGHS / CS (MA) Rules may be granted medical advance being restricted to CGHS rates for post operative treatment of Cancer obtained from nonempanelled private nursing home/hospital.

Thanking you,

Sincerely yours
(MUKESH SINGH)

Implementation of 7th Pay Commission – Railway Board clarification on Calculation of Money Value of posts surrendered and crediting to surplus bank

Ministry of Railways has issued a circular clarifying calculation of Money Value of posts surrendered on implementation of 7th Pay commission

The General Managers,

Sub: Calculation of Money Value of posts surrendered and crediting to surplus Bank on Implementation of 7th Pay Commission.

In view of Implementation of 7th CPC recommendations w.e.f 01.01.2016, references are being received from railways seeking clarification for calculating the money value of the posts surrendered and crediting to surplus Bank on implementation of 7th Pay Commission. As Ministry of Finance (MOF) has not issued instructions in this regard, the following provisional instructions are being issued subject to necessary adjustment in calculation in case MOF issues any orders at variance.

For the purpose of working out the monetary value of the post being surrendered, only the mean pay of the same in a particular level in 7th CPC mentioned in the Matrix and Dearness allowance as on date should be taken into account for calculation of mean value.

The above is explained with the following illustration of surrender of a post in level -7 of the 7th CPC matrix:

PC matrix:

6th CPC Pay Band+GP Level as Per 7thCPC Pay Matrix Pay Structure as per Level Mean Pay of the level.
PB-II 9300-34800 + GP 4600 Level – 7 44900-142400 ((44900+142400)/2)=93650

Similar calculation may be adopted for posts surrendered w.e.f 01.01.2016 and vacancy Bank may be accordingly modified.

This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of Railway Board.

Receipt of the letter may please be acknowledged.
