Maximum Governance Minimum Government is the government’s motto: Dr. Jitendra Singh

Maximum Governance Minimum Government is the government’s motto: Dr. Jitendra Singh

Swachh Bharat Mission Manual launched

Two Day Regional Conference on Good Governance and Replication of Best Practices concludes in Goa

‘Maximum Governance, Minimum Government’ is the motto of the Central Government. To achieve this motto Government is concentrated on “Citizen-First” mantra, said Dr. Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region (Independent Charge), MoS for PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space. He was speaking at the valedictory session of the two-day regional conference on ‘Good Governance and Replication of Best Practices’ which concluded in Goa today.

“Our dream is to bring Government closer to citizens so that they become active participants in the governance process. An important step for Good Governance is the simplification of procedures and processes in the Government so as to make the entire system transparent and faster. To this end Government has taken the decision to scrap 1,500 obsolete rules, started the self-certification process etc. To achieve this, the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances has a key role to play,” said Dr. Jitendra Singh.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Administration were instituted 10 years back and first awards were presented on the 2nd Civil Services Day on April 21, 2007 to the Civil Servants for their innovative ideas and efforts in addressing the problems locally. This motivation is required for improving governance and delivery of services. He said the Priority Programmes for PM’s Award to be presented next year are (i) Pradhan Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY); (ii) Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY); (iii) Promoting Digital Payments; and (iv) Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural &Urban).

Talking about Grievance cell, he informed that Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) enabled a quantum shift in Online Government Service delivery across the country. This aims to further Government’s efforts at revamping of Public Administration system, Public Grievance Redress Mechanism, ushering in e-Governance, Digital India, more so in the context of the goal of ‘Minimum Government with Maximum Governance’ through e-Governance based Citizen Centric End-to-End Online Services. Compared to 2.70 lakh grievances in 2014, 11.94 lakh grievances were received on CPGRAMS (Central Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System) in 2016. In 2017, 9.32 lakhs grievances have already been received till 25.8.17. Due to higher expectations, the grievances have increased more than 4 times in 2016, compared to 2014. However, due to intensive monitoring, the disposal rate has also increased significantly and is presently more than the rate of receipt of grievances. Action on grievances can be tracked with the help of unique grievance registration number. A timeline of two months has been prescribed for disposal of grievances. In case it is not possible, an interim reply with reasons for delay has to be provided.

Right to Information Act (RTI) is now online and from last six months it is available on mobile also, he informed.

Development Manual for District level functionaries by DARPG Swachh Bharat Mission [Gramin] was also launched during the Valedictory function. The purpose of the Development Role manual is to create an enabling mechanism for improved implementation of the Centrally sponsored schemes at the cutting edge, leading to enhanced outcomes in nature and extent. The manual is prepared with inputs from a combination of sources, including interaction with the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation (MDWS), review of extant scheme guidelines and circulars issued by MDWS and discussions with the key personnel involved in the implementation of the scheme.

Chief Minister of Goa, Shri Manohar Parrikar also shared his thoughts on Good Governance, Swachh Bharat, and Grievance redressal mechanisms during the valedictory session.

Shri C. Viswanath, Secretary DARPG in his address said that conferences like these are useful for promoting meaningful confluence of interactions and insights, cross-fertilization of ideas and exchange of constructive views among the policy makers, public figures, peers, practitioners and professionals who may have championed and facilitated the successful implementation of innovations in government processes, administrative reforms, and public service delivery.

With this, the two-day Regional Conference on ‘Good Governance and Replication of Best Practices’ concluded. The DARPG has so far organized 26 such regional conferences to share experiences in the formulation and successful implementation of good governance practices and to facilitate speedy and efficient delivery of public services

Conference on Portability from Superannuation and Recognized Provident Funds to National Pension System (NPS)

Conference on Portability from Superannuation and Recognized Provident Funds to National Pension System (NPS); NPS has more than 1.71 crore subscribers with total Asset under Management (AUM) of more than Rs. 2.04 lakh crores.

A Conference on Portability from Superannuation and recognized Provident Funds to National Pension System (NPS) was organized by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) in coordination with Willis Towers Watson in national capital. The Prime objective of the Conference was to provide a knowledge base platform to the Corporate by providing solutions to address the issues / challenges of portability of superannuation funds to NPS.

160 participants comprising Corporate, Points of Presence (POPs), Pension Funds, Central Record Keeping Agencies (CRAs) participated in the Conference.

Dr. B. S. Bhandari, Whole Time Member (Economics), PFRDA, highlighted the need to expand the coverage of NPS in an efficient and sustainable way. He asserted the fact that there are more employees in the Corporate – Private sector than in the government sector and hence there is a great potential for NPS in the corporate sector. PFRDA has been constantly engaging with its stake holders in the NPS and has been working with industry associations for promotion of NPS in the Corporate – Private sector. To make NPS entry easy and the interface user friendly, various modifications have been carried out in the product.

Shri Rohit Jain, Head, Willis Towers Watson (India), speaking on the occasion, told that the average life expectancy of persons in India has risen and hence there is a greater need for a retirement / pension product for all. Traditional pension products cover only 30% of the population. In this changing scenario there is a latent demand for product like NPS as there is no universal pension product.

Shri Hemant Contractor, Chairman, PFRDA in his key note address, informed that, earlier, people used to retire from the same job not only in the government sector but also in private sector. With opening up of economy people started getting more job opportunities switching jobs suitable to their skills and talents. Job switching has become more frequent and people seek more controls on their finances, when they start moving jobs and place from one to another. The concept of portability came in and people started thinking about having better control on their retirement savings.

Defined Benefit Pension schemes, which were predominant, became unsustainable not only for the government sector but also for the private sector because of various factors. A Defined Contribution scheme was therefore launched in 2004 which was initially only for Central Government employees, but which was later extended to State Government employees and later to the private sector. This scheme is the National Pension System (NPS), which is regulated by PFRDA.

NPS addressed the concerns of subscribers relating to portability and freedom of choice, and gradually started to pick up momentum in the private sector. The other features of NPS, namely, low cost, attractive returns, transparency, flexibility and domain expertise in each area of pension activity were the other factors which appealed to the private sector. Innovations and changes are made from time to time in the NPS product and processes, some recent examples being, introduction of two new life cycle funds, inclusion of alternative assets in investment portfolio, online entry and exit etc.

The entry age to NPS is now proposed to be increased to 65 years from 60 years and there is an option to continue up to age of 70 years.

The Chairman also mentioned that NPS should also be explored, as an additional retirement benefit, for corporates where superannuation funds are not available and employees are covered only under the mandatory EPFO schemes.

He highlighted the growth of 47% in AUM and 26% in number of subscribers in the last financial year (2016-17). He also made a reference to Atal Pension Yojana, the pension platform available for unorganized segment through Government of India / PFRDA and its year on year growth indicating the underlying demand for pension products in India.

During the conference, a panel discussion comprising industry experts such as Willis Towers Watson, HDFC Pension Funds, Siemens Limited, Vedanta Group and NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure Limited eyeing the opportunities, addressing the challenges / issues and preparation of necessary guidelines on superannuation funds and NPS portability was conducted.

In the second half, a Conference for Point of Presence (PoPs), the distribution channel for NPS, was conducted.

Shri Hemant Contractor, Chairman, PFRDA, in his keynote address stressed on the need for robust distribution of the NPS through the current distribution network being managed by POPs which are Banks and other financial institutions. He also laid emphasis on the fact that, the key to last mile connectivity is increased distribution network by the POPs by registration and activation of more branches and through awareness campaigns. He informed that PFRDA has empanelled IL&FS Skill Development Corporation Limited as its training agency to impart training on NPS to POPs and Corporate and urged the POPs to utilise the services of the Training Agency for training of their staff member on NPS.

During this conference, awards were distributed to the POPs, for their performance in FY 2016-17 under various categories.

Currently, NPS has more than 1.71 crore subscribers with total Asset under Management (AUM) of more than Rs. 2.04 lakh crores.

To
The Secretary,
Labour Department,
All State Governments/UT Administrators

Subject: The Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act,2017

Sir/Madam,

Kind reference is invited to Ministry of Labour & Employment’s earlier letter number S-36012/03/2015-ss-I dated 12.04.2017 (copy enclosed) highlighting the recent amendments made to Maternity Benefit Act, 1961. The Ministry had also clarified therin certain points of doubts to facilitate smooth implementation of the provisions of the said Act, specially in respect of coverage of contractual workers under the Act. This Ministry in the recent past have been receiving a number of complaints and grievances from working women stating non-implementation of the provisions of the M.B. Act including alleged dismissal of few women by the employers in violation of section 12 of the said Act, non coverage of contractual employees, etc. The honourable National Commission for women has also taken serious view of such denial of rights of working women. This Ministry would, therefore, urge all the State/UT Labour Commissioners (which is the implementing authority under the M.B. Act) to effectively enforce the provisions of M.B. Act, and take strict punitive action against defaulting employers and ensure that the provisions of the statute are implemented in true spirit and letter to protect the rights of working women enshrined in the Act.

Yours faithfully
