Sir,

Sub:-Pay fixation to Running Staff while granting financial upgradation in the identical Grade Pay (VI CPC) under MACPS – Reckoning Special Running Staff Allowance for pay fixation-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR s letter No. IV/MACPS/Part 10, dt. 16.05.2017 on the above subject and to state that tile instructions for fixation of pay at the time of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS are contained in Para-4 of the Annexure to Board’s letter dt. 10.06.09 (RBE NoA 01/2009) which stipulates as under:-

“Benefit of pay fixation available at the time Df regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgraiation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade pay as granted under MACPS”.

In view of the above, nodal Branches for 6th  & 7th CPC viz. PC-VI and PC-VII, have been consulted. They have advised that the Additional Allowance/Special Running Staff Allowance is not reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion. As such it is not feasible to reckon the same for pay fixation purpose while granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
for Secretary/Railway Board

The Central Government abolished various Cesses in the last three years for smooth roll-out of GST

The Central Government abolished various Cesses in the last three years for smooth roll-out of GST 

The Central Government in the last three General Budgets viz 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 has gradually abolished various cesses on goods and services in order to prepare the ground for smooth roll- out of Goods and Service Tax (GST) from 1st July, 2017. The Central Government has taken this step in stages by abolishing various cesses so that it is easier to fit in various goods and services in different tax slabs for GST.

The Central Government in its General Budget 2015-16 had abolished Education Cess, including Secondary and Higher Education Cess on taxable services, and exempted Education Cess on excisable goods as well as Secondary and Higher Education Cess on excisable goods.

In its General Budget 2016-17, the Central Government abolished cess on cement, strawboard, three cesses including cess on Iron Ore Mines, Manganese Ore Mines and Chrome Ore Mines by amending Labour Welfare Cess Act, 1976, Tobacco cess by amending the Tobacco Cess Act 1975, and Cine Workers Welfare Cess by amending the Cine Workers’ Welfare Cess Act 1981 among others.

In its General Budget 2017-18, the Central Government abolished Research and Development cess by amending the Research and Development Cess Act.

 Through Taxation Laws Amendment Act 2017, the following cesses are abolished. However, the date of the implementation will coincide with the date of the GST roll-out:

  1. The Rubber Act 1947 – Cess on Rubber
  2. The Industries (Development and Regulation) Act 1951 – Cess on Automobile
  3. The Tea Act 1953 – Cess on Tea
  4. The Coal Mines (Conservation and Development) Act, 1974 – Cess on Coal
  5. The Beedi Workers’ Welfare Cess Act 1971 – Cess on Beedis
  6. The Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Cess Act 1977 – Cess levied on Water consumed by certain industries and by local authorities.
  7. The Sugar Cess Act 1982, the Sugar Development Fund Act 1982 – Cess on Sugar
  8. The Jute Manufacturers Cess Act 1983 – Cess on Jute Goods manufactured or produced or in part of Jute.
  9. The Finance (2) Act 2004 – Education Cess on Excisable Goods
  10. The Finance Act, 2007 – Secondary and Higher Education Cess on Excisable Goods
  11. The Finance Act 2010 – Clean Energy Cess
  12. The Finance Act 2015 – Swachh Bharat Cess
  13. The Finance Act 2016 – Infrastructure Cess and Krishi Kalyan Cess

 However, the following cesses will continue to be levied under the GST regime since they pertain to customs or goods which are not covered under the GST regime:

  1. The Finance (2) Act 2004 – Education Cess on Imported Goods
  2. The Finance Act, 2007 – Secondary and Higher Education Cess on Imported Goods
  3. Cess on Crude Petroleum Oil under the Oil Industry Development Act, 1974
  4. Additional Duty of Excise on Motor Spirit (Road Cess)
  5. Additional Duty of Excise on High Speed Diesel Oil (Road Cess)
  6. Special Additional Duty of Excise on Motor Spirit
  7. NCCD on Tobacco and Tobacco Products and Crude Petroleum Oil.

Doc. No. 23/2017-CA.III

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF COMMITTEE OF SECRETARIES

Venue : Committee Room, Cabinet Secretariat Rashtrapati Bhavan
Date of meeting : 12.05.2017
Time of meeting : 3:15 PM

Sub: Consideration of the recommendations of the 3rd Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for Revision of Pay for Executives and Non-Unionized Supervisors in CPSEs – reg.

SECRET

Subject: Recommendations of 3rd PRC for revision of pay for Executives and non-unionized Supervisors in CPSEs.

A meeting of Committee of Secretaries on the above mentioned subject was chaired by Cabinet Secretary at 3.15 PM on 12.05.2017 in the Committee Room, Cabinet Secretariat, Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi.

2. Secretary, DPE made a presentation on the subject. The deliberations of COS on different recommendations of the 3rd PRC are discussed below.

3. Affordability

(i) Secretary, DPE apprised the COS about the recommendations of the 3rd PRC regarding ‘affordability clause’. She stated that broadly speaking, 3rd PRC had recommended that additional financial impact should be within 20% of average PBT of last 3 years preceding the year of implementation. Secretary, M/o Coal expressed the view that CIL and its subsidiaries may be considered as a single unit for the purpose of the “affordability clause” because the executives in CIL are recruited centrally and are transferrable from holding company to subsidiaries and vice versa.

He stated that this matter has already been considered and approved by Cabinet earlier at the time of implementation of 2007 pay revision. CoS was of the view that past precedent in respect of CIL may be taken into account for ‘affordability’.

(ii) Recommendation The recommendation of 3rd PRC regarding ‘affordability clause’ may be accepted. However, in case of ClL, the holding company and its subsidiaries would be considered as a single unit for the affordability clause as per past precedent.

4. Fitment benefit

(i) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC had recommended uniform fitment benefit of 15% of Basic Pay plus DA in case the financial impact of the pay revision is within 20% of the average PBT of last 3 years and part fitment slabs of 10% and 5°/o in case the financial impact is more than 20%. After detailed discussion, CoS was of the View that these recommendations were acceptable.

(ii) Recommendation The fitment benefit as recommended by 3rd PRC may be accepted.

5. Dearness Allowance, annual increment, promotion increment, stagnation increment and bunching of pay:

(i) Secretary, DPE apprised that 3″ PRC had recommended continuation of 100% DA neutralization. The annual increment and promotion increment were recommended at 30/0 of basic pay. The provisions regarding stagnation increment and bunching of pay in the situation where a lower fitment benefit (i.e. 10°/o or 5%) is granted due to affordability issues were brought out. There was consensus in the CoS that recommendations of 3rd PRC on these issues may be accepted.

(ii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendations regarding dearness allowance, annual, promotion and stagnation increments and bunching of pay may be accepted.

100% IDA Neutralization, Annual increment

The CoS has approved the 3% of basic pay for the purpose of annual increment and promotional increment. It also has given the nod for the 100% IDA neutralization for calculating the fitment benefit for existing employees. It means the IDA rate at the time of 31.12.2016 will be merged with the basic pay. Here is the formula for calculating the revised basic pay:

A B C D
(Revised
Basic Pay
w.e.f.
01.01.2017)
Basic Pay + Stagnation increment(s) as on 31.12.2016
(Personal Pay / Special Pay not to be included)
+
Industrial Dearness Allowance (IDA) as applicable on 1.1.2017
[under the IDA pattern computation methodology linked to All India Cumulative Price Index (AICPI) 2001=100 series]
+ 15% of (A+B) + Aggregate amount rounded off to the next Rs.10/-.

6. Pay Protection

(i) Secretary, DPE apprised that 3rd PRC had recommended that a Special Pay should be granted to accord pay protection to executives whose pay after promotion or selection to a Board level position exceeds the maximum of pay-scale of that post. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure stated that such a provision is not available in Central Government whereby pay could be fixed beyond the maximum of the scale of a post. Hence, the recommendation was not supported by D/o Expenditure. Secretary, DoPT mentioned that government servants are allowed pay only up to maximum of the scale/level of the post to which they are appointed. CoS observed that the 3rd PRC has recommended fairly wide pay bands along with up to three stagnation increments and therefore there is hardly any likelihood of stagnation in the event of promotion / selection of an executive to a higher post. Besides, taking into account the above views of DoPT and DoE the recommendation of 3rd PRC regarding pay protection may not be accepted.

(ii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendation regarding pay protection may not be accepted.

7. Pay scales

(i) Secretary, DPE explained that the 3rd PRC had recommended continuing with existing levels and number of pay scales linked to Scheduled classification of CPSEs. Thus, 3rd PRC had recommended revised pay scales corresponding to existing pay scales for each of the existing Grades.

(ii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendations regarding pay scales may be accepted.

Grade Existing Pay Scale Recommended Pay Scale Applicable Schedule of CPSE
E0 12600-32500 30000-120000 A, B, C, D

Director 43200-66000 100000-260000 D
CMD 51300-73000 120000-280000 D

8. Perks and allowances

(i) Secretary, DPE informed that the 3rd PRC had recommended that Board of CPSEs may be empowered to provide up to a ceiling of 35% of Basic Pay towards perks and allowances under the concept of ‘Cafeteria Approach’. Further, 3rd PRC had recommended that the ceiling shall be partially linked to Industrial DA (IDA) in future whereby it would be enhanced by 25°/o whenever IDA rises by 50°/o. In addition, it was recommended that cost of infrastructure facilities should not be covered within the ceiling. As regards company-owned accommodation provided to executives, CPSEs would be able to bear Income Tax liability on the ‘non-monetary perquisite’ of which 50% shall be loaded within the ceiling of 35% on perks and allowances. It was pointed out by Secretary, DPE that at present, the ceiling for allowances under ‘Cafeteria Approach’ is not linked to IDA.

(ii) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC had also made recommendations in respect of certain allowances such as location based compensatory allowance, work based hardship duty allowance and project allowance which are outside the abovementioned ‘Cafeteria Approach’. In addition, it had also recommended that work related administrative expenditure and reimbursement of telephone/internet facility etc. may be allowed outside the ceiling on perks on allowances.

(iii) Secretary, MoCA stated that certain allowances in CPSEs under MoCA such as flying/engineering related allowances applicable to Air Traffic Controllers, Flying Crew etc. may be kept outside the ceiling of 35°/o in order to attract and retain talent. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure stated that 7th CPC has recommended hardship and location based allowances on slab basis and not as a percentage of pay. A decision on recommendations of 7th CPC pertaining to allowances of Central Government employees, many of which are closely related to the allowances of CPSE employees which are outside the ‘Cafeteria Approach’, is yet to be taken by Government. The matter was discussed in detail. It was suggested that a view on allowances which are analogous to those of Central Government employees may be taken after the latter are finalized.

(iv) Recommendation The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding allowances under ‘Cafeteria Approach’ up to a ceiling of 35% excluding the cost on infrastructure facilities and 50% of Income Tax liability on ‘non-monetary perquisite’ related to company owned accommodation may be accepted. Further, the recommendation of 3rd PRC regarding work related administrative expenditure and linkage of allowances under ‘Cafeteria Approach’ with IDA may not be accepted. However, decision regarding other allowances may be taken by DPE in consultation with M/o Finance separately after a decision is taken by Government on the allowances for Central Government employees. Till a decision is taken regarding the other allowances, the existing allowances in CPSEs at existing rates may continue to be paid on pre-revised pay.

9. Performance related pay (PRP)

(i) Secretary, DPE informed CoS that 3rd PRC had recommended that as in the past, PRP should be paid from 5% of profit accruing from core business activities. However, the ratio of relevant year’s profit to incremental profit for calculating PRP has been modified from 60:40 to 65:35. In addition to the existing provision for CPSE and individual Performance, provision has also been made for Team Performance. Thus CPSE Performance, Individual Performance and Team Performance have been given weightages of 50°/o, 20% and 30°/o respectively. Further, 3rd PRC has recommended certain changes in Grade Ceilings of PRP for Executives and discontinuation of forced rating of 10% executives as below par/poor performers.

(ii) Recommendation The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding PRP may be accepted.

10. Superannuation Benefits

(i) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC had recommended no change regarding superannuation benefits (i.e. PF, gratuity, post-retirement medical benefits and pension) for which the present ceiling of 30% of Basic Pay + DA had been retained. However, ceiling for gratuity has been raised to Rs. 20 lakh from the present Rs. 10 lakh with partial linkage to DA in line with that for Central Government employees. Further, it has been recommended that funding of gratuity beyond Rs. 10 lakh should be kept outside the ceiling of 30% of Basic Pay + DA. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure stated that the recommendation regarding funding of gratuity may be reexamined because gratuity per se is part of existing ceiling being a retirement benefit and hence it may not be appropriate to create two segments for gratuity. Moreover, there is no specific reason given for this recommendation by the 3rd PRC.

(ii) Recommendation The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding superannuation benefits may be accepted with the modification that funding for the entire amount of gratuity may be met from within the ceiling of 30% of Basic Pay DA.

11. Corpus for Medical and other emergency needs

(i) Secretary, DPE informed that 3″ PRC had recommended that the ceiling for contribution to the corpus for post-retirement medical benefits and other emergency needs for retirees may be enhanced from 1.5°/o of PBT to 3% of PBT. Further, coverage from the corpus may be extended to all retirees instead of the present provision for only pre 1.1.2007 retirees. CoS was of the view that the present ceiling of 1.5% of PBT is sufficient for covering the pre 1.1.2007 retirees. As regards remaining employees, provision for post-retirement medical benefit already exists as part of the stipulated contribution of 30% of Basic Pay + DA for superannuation benefits.

(ii) Recommendation The corpus for post-retirement medical benefits and other emergency needs may be provided for within the existing ceiling of 1.5% of PBT and it may apply only in respect of pre 1.1.2007 retirees. Formulation of suitable schemes in this regard by CPSEs may be ensured by the Administrative Ministries/Departments.

12. House Rent Allowance (HRA) and Leased Accommodation including House Rent Recovery (HRR)

(i) The recommendations of 3rd PRC regarding rates of HRA, HRR and leased accommodation etc. were discussed. Additional Secretary, D/o Expenditure apprised that the recommendations of 7th CPC on HRA for Central Government employees was under consideration and a final view was yet to be taken. CoS was of the view that decision of the Government on the recommendations of the 7th CPC on allowances may be awaited.

(ii) Recommendation: A decision on 3rd PRC’s recommendations regarding HRA, HRR, leased accommodation etc. may be taken by DPE in consultation with Mo Finance along the lines of provisions for Central Government employees after a decision is taken by Government on HRA for Central Government employees. Till then, the existing allowances at the existing rates may continue to be paid at pre-revised pay scales.

13. Deputation, Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) VRSNSS and healthcare of employees.

(i) Secretary, DPE stated that 3rd PRC has recommended that deputation of employees from one CPSE to another may be allowed in which case the employee would be entitled to pay and allowances as applicable in the parent CPSE. In addition, deputation allowance would also be payable. Further, the same provision would also apply to government officials on deputation to CPSEs, i.e. they would be entitled to pay and allowances as applicable in their parent cadre together with deputation allowance. She further informed that as per extant guidelines, government officers could join posts in CPSEs only on immediate absorption basis except in certain posts. This policy also applies to employees of one CPSE joining other CPSEs regardless of the level of post involved. The executives, who are brought into holding companies from subsidiaries or vice versa on deputation/transfer, will continue to draw their basic pay as drawn in the original company. They will, however, be entitled to draw the allowances and variable pay/performance related pay as applicable to the borrowing CPSE. Secretary, DoPT was of the view that deputationists should have the option to choose between pay of parent cadre plus deputation allowance or pay of the ex-cadre post. Further, the deputationists should get the allowances and other non-pay benefits according to the rules of the borrowing organization.

(ii) Secretary, DPE apprised that the 3rd PRC had also made certain recommendations to improve the performance of CPSEs, inter alia, covering Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), VRSNSS, and healthcare of employees, etc. She stated that as regards ESOP, 3rd PRC had recommended that DPE may elaborate the mechanism in consultation with Government agencies concerned. This recommendation may be delinked from the processing of the other recommendations of 3rd PRC and may be examined separately. As regards VRSNSS, there are existing guidelines of DPE and recommendations of 3rd PRC on this issue would also need separate examination. Regarding modifications in respect of healthcare facilities for employees recommended by 3rd PRC, CoS observed that most of the CPSEs are already implementing various health schemes and therefore changes in this regard may not be necessary.

(iii) Recommendation 3rd PRC’s recommendations on deputation of officers between CPSEs and of Government officers to CPSEs may not be accepted and the existing guidelines of DPE and DoPT in this regard may continue to apply. As regards recommendations on ESOP and VRSNSS, these may also be examined separately by DPE. Further, modifications recommended by 3rd PRC in respect of healthcare facilities for employees may not be accepted and present provisions may continue in this regard.

14. After detailed deliberations, it was recommended that:

i. 3rd PRC’s recommendations may be accepted except to the extent of modifications recommended in Paras 3 (ii), 6 (ii), 8 (iv), 10 (ii), 11 (ii), 12 (ii) and 13 (iii) above.

ii. The recommendations of 3rd PRC may be implemented from 01.01.2017 (except for allowances as discussed in Paras 8 and 12 above, decision on which will be taken after the Government decision on allowances under 7th CPC)

ADVISORY

Subject: Publishing of Tender Notices by all Central Government Ministries/ Departments/ Attached subordinate offices/ Field offices as per new GFR -reg.

1.Attention of all Central Government Ministries/ Departments/ Attached Subordinate offices/ Field offices is drawn to the provisions as given in the recently amended General Financial Rules (GFR) 2017, in respect of tender advertisements for procurement of goods and services.  In this connection, Rule 161(i & ii), 183(ii) and 201(ii) etc. may be referred to.

2.These rules have done away with the need for publishing advertisements in newspapers for procurement of goods and services.  This has now been replaced with mandatory e-publishing of advertisement on Central Public Procurement Portal (CPPP) at www.eprocure.gov.in and on GeM.

3.In case Ministry/Department/Attached Subordinate office/Field office, still insists that the advertisement should be published in newspapers, a request to DAVP should be sent in a signed letter stating that Competent Authority has approved publication of newspaper advertisement/s despite new GFR provisions.  In such cases too, only window advertisement should be published in newspapers alongwith publication on CPPP, GeM and website of respective organisations.

4. This issues with the approval of Competent Authority.

Incorrect fixation of pay for Pharmacist – NFIR

Incorrect fixation of pay for Pharmacist – NFIR

Incorrect fixation of pay in the Non-Functional Grade (GP 4200/-) in the ease of Pharmacist working in the Medical Department on Indian Railways

Incorrect fixation of pay for Pharmacist - NFIR

No.1/2/Part IV

Dated: 05/06/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Baoard,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub:
Incorrect fixation of pay in the Non-Functional Grade (GP 4200/-) in the ease of Pharmacist working in the Medical Department on Indian Railways-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s clarification vide No. PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 20/04/2011.

Representations are being received from the staff that the Zonal Units have been interpreting wrongly the Board’s instructions on the subject of pay fixation when the staff working as Pharmacists are placed in NFG (GP 4200/-) on completion of 2 years service in GP 2800/- i.e. in the entry grade.

In this connection, Federation cite the instructions issued by the CPO/Southern Railway vide  letter dated 15/05/2017 (copy enclosed) wherein the Divisions have been advised to the placement of
Pharmacist in NFG (GP 4200/-) as placement only and to fix their pay in the initial Pay Band plus Grade Pay (PB-2 + GP 4200/-) only. This action on the part of Southenl Railway is unjustified in view of the fact that instructions exist vide Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 20/04/2011 to treat the placement of Pharmacist on completion of 2 years in the entry grade pay (GP 2800/-) to NFG/GP 4200/- as one financial upgradation, therefore the Pharmacists are entitled for one increment benefit on being placed in GP 4200/-.

While issuing instructions vide letter dated 15/05/2017, the CPO/Southern Railway has wrongly  relied on Board’s instructions contained in RBE 109/2010 dated inspite of Board’s  clarification vide letter dated 20/04/2011. Due to wrong decision of Southern Railway, recoveries have  started on the Divisions of Southern Railway.

NFIR therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue immediate clarification to all Zonal  Railways etc., in general and GM/Southern Railway in particular to allow 3% increase in pay fixation of  Pharmacists when they are placed in GP 4200/-, having completed 2 years service in GP 2800 (PB I).  A copy of the instructions issued may be to the endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

sd/-

Central Government mulls raising retirement age of Group A officers

Central Government mulls raising retirement age of Group A officers.

retirement-age-cg-employees

New Delhi:The central government is taking into consideration suggestions to raise the retirement age of Group A officers to accommodate the increasing number of senior bureaucrats in administration.

A top official of Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) on condition of anonymity said there had been active discussion over the matter and DoPT had received views from certain stakeholders to review the retirement age of Group A officers.

He however said that any changes made to the retirement age of Group A officers would not be done in the near time as a lot of engagements with stakeholders need to be done first.

“The government is looking into that, in fact DoPT has received suggestions that the kind of acumen the Group A officers achieve by the time they reach the age of 60 should be put to use for another two years.

So, the government is seriously thinking of enhancing the retirement age of the Central Group A officers to 62 to cover the cost of ageing population.

“Amongst 48.85 lakh central government employees, 85% are holding Group-‘C’ posts and 12% are holding Group-‘B’ posts whereas employees holding Group -‘A’ posts are only about 3%,” he said.

The official said any proposal to increase the retirement age of the Central Group A officers would not be hampering the financial heath of the government as only 3 per cent regular Group A officers, who will get this facility.

Besides Central Group A officers, it will also be implemented to All India Service officers (IAS, IPS and IFS), he confirmed.

He added increasing the bar on retirement age would halt the job progress of those in the lower position to get promoted.

“If government keep raising, those who are supposed to be promoted will be affected … the government accept the idea but government needs to study it thoroughly,” he also said.

Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India has more than 65% of its population below the age of 35, but at the moment the government plans to increase the retirement age of Group A officers as average life expectancy rises.

There are several secretaries heading different departments have to cross their retirement age, but now they may be retained by the government owing to their experience and expertise.
