NCM member writes to FM, seeks changes in 7th Pay Commission salaries

NCM member writes to FM, seeks changes in 7th Pay Commission salaries

Praveen-Davar-NCM-member-7th-CPC
NCM member Praveen Davar said that the minimum pay of Rs 18,000 is “not adequate”, while the maximum pay of Rs 2.5 lakh is “a little too much”.

New Delhi: Contending prices of essential commodities are same for all, an NCM member today urged Centre to increase salary of its lowest paid employees by Rs 4,000 and reduce that of highest paid personnel by Rs 25,000 under 7th Pay Commission to see those earning less are not affected.

In his letter to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, National Commission for Minorities member Praveen Davar said that the minimum pay of Rs 18,000 as recommended in the 7th Pay Commission is “not adequate”, while the maximum pay of Rs 2.5 lakh is “a little too much”.

Davar though said his opinions expressed in the letter, dated July 11, was all personal and did not represent any organisation or group of individuals.

“Prices of essential commodities are equal for everyone.

But those paid lower are affected more than those drawing high salaries. It is my personal opinion that the minimum pay in the 7th Pay Commission of Rs 18,000 is not adequate. However, the maximum pay of Rs 2.5 lakh is a little too much,” he argued.

Stating that the ratio of the highest and lowest paid should be ideally 10:1, Davar said, “the minimum pay is increased to Rs 22,000 and the maximum pay is brought down to Rs 2.25 lakhs. Similar modifications can be made in the intermediately pay scales.”

The move, he said, will not only narrow the gap between highest and lowest paid, but also result in substantially reducing the financial burden on the exchequer.

Davar also criticised the decision to offer steep hike in salary of MLAs in Delhi assembly saying the move has set a “wrong” precedent.

“Why should be anyone paid far above his genuine needs?,” he asked.

Sub: Comparing pension amount(Family Pension or NPS annuity) by Government Nodal Office before processing Family Pension cases on Death/disability of subscriber

This is with reference to Regulation 6 (e) of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (Exits and Withdrawal from National Pension System) Regulation 2015, providing for the treatment of additional benefits provided by the government like Family Pension.   In this regard, the Authority has provided guidelines for adjustment/transfer of· accumulated pension wealth in the subscribers’ account to the government nodal office in the event of the government providing an additional benefit in the nature of family pension to the family members/subscriber upon their request.

However, in order to ensure that such claimants take an informed decision on availing such family pension vis-a-vis the benefits available to them under National Pension System (NPS), it has been decided that the concerned nodal office shall obtain from CRA registered under NPS the information about the likely monthly annuity amount with the accumulated pension wealth in the subscribers account and inform the claimants along with the family pension they are eligible to get.   This is to ensure that the claimants/ family members of the subscriber/subscriber takes an informed decision in the matter of availing the benefits available to him.

The Authority is undertaking steps to provide for an annuity quote calculator on the website of CRA registered under NPS for facilitating the same and, in the interim, such nodal offices can write to CRA atnpsclaimassist@nsdl.co.in to provide the approximate pension per month that can be derived from the purchase of an annuity for the accumulated pension wealth in the subscribers account by  giving  the  PRA  number  and  other  details.    Upon  receipt  of the information   from  CRA  the  nodal  office  can  guide  the claimants appropriately based  on  the annuity  available  under NPS and the monthly  pension  that is available  under  the additional relief by way of family  pension  being  offered  to them.

Regulation  6(e) is to be read in conjunction with Regulation  3  (b) and 3  (c) of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development  Authority   (Exits  and Withdrawal  from National Pension System) Regulation  201 Sand is applicable  only  if the concerned Central  or State  Government is offering such  additional relief  by way  of family pension  to  its employee.   It may also  be noted  that  the grant  of additional  relief  by way  of family  pension etc.,    is the sole prerogative   of the concerned Central  or State Government  entity and the Authority  has no role to play in this regard.

The clarificatory  guidelines  for  removal  of difficulty  are being  issued  by the Authority  in exercise of its powers  under  Section  14 of the  Pension  Fund Regulatory and Development  Authority  Act, 2013  read  with  Regulation 39 of  the  PFRDA (Exits and Withdrawals from National Pension System) Regulations, 2015.

7th CPC recommendations will have no impact on the fiscal deficit in the current fiscal year

The implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations will have no impact on the fiscal deficit in the current fiscal, as budgetary provisions are enough to meet the estimated outgo of Rs 60,400 crore in FY17, a senior official said.

 

With the government broadly accepting the pay- and pension-related recommendations of the Pay panel, over one crore central government staffers and pensioners will get an additional Rs 84,933 crore as recompense in FY17.

 

A finance ministry official on condition of anonymity said that while Budget FY17 did not provide any explicit provision for the Pay panel, some Rs 53,500 crore was built into the allocations to various ministries and Rs 20,500 crore in the rail budget.

 

“Most of the outgo related to general budget has been provided for in the Budget. Only a small amount (Rs 6,900 crore) will be required, which would be met from savings during the year from budget allocations (for various departments),” the official said. He, however, did not specify if these savings meant cuts in capital spending.

 

Every year, the government makes some savings due to the inability of many departments to spend their allocated budget. These savings are often reallocated to needy departments. The total spending budget for FY17 is Rs 19.78 lakh crore.

 

The Centre has set a target to bring down fiscal deficit to 3.5% of GDP in FY17, from 3.9% in FY16. Sources indicated that the tax revenue increase due to Pay panel award had been factored in when the Budget was made.

 

Separately, the railways will have to find another Rs 4,000 crore to meet the gap in budget provision for pay and salary revisions in FY17. It has provided for Rs 20,500 crore in this year’s rail budget for salary hike.

The total impact on account of revision in pay, allowances and pension would have been more, had the Centre accepted the recommendations related to allowances along with pay and pension in one go.

 

The Pay Commission’s recommendation for a 63% rise in allowances (which would have inflated the Centre’s and railways’ outgo by Rs 29,300 crore) has been put on hold until a finance secretary-led committee reviews this along with the commission’s suggestions for an overhaul of the 196-odd such benefits.

 

The committee will submit its report in four months (by October). Officials don’t anticipate any significant additional outgo on account of allowances this year as the revised benefits are likely to be paid prospectively from next year.

 

Of the Rs 84,933-crore hit on the exchequer this year, a recurring expenditure of Rs 72,800 crore is due to pay and pension while Rs 12,133 crore is earmarked to pay arrears from last financial year (the panel’s award will take effect from January 2016).

 

On June 29, the Cabinet accepted the Pay Commission’s recommendations on pay and pension.

 

The minimum pay for the lowest level staff will now be Rs 18,000 per month (Rs 7,000 earlier); while the real increase pay/pension is 14.3%.

The individuals/ members of the teams, achieving first and second

7th pay commission recommendations For Station Masters in Indian Railways

7th pay commission recommendations For Station Masters in Indian Railways
Station Masters

The cadre of Station Masters, nearly 39,000 strong, is one of the visible faces of Indian Railways. They are connected with working of traffic, commercial duties like issue of tickets, goods handling, parcel handling, accounting of station earnings. They are also responsible for proper co-ordination between personnel of different departments posted at the station. Theirs is presently a three-tier structure:-
7th-pay-commission-recommendations-Station-Masters-Indian-Railways
Some major stations have posts of Station Superintendent (Gazetted).

Presently the mode of recruitment is as follows:
SS–100 percent promotional
SM–10 percent through Limited Departmental Competitive
Examination (LDCE), from serving non-ministerial graduates of Commercial and Traffic Departments; 15 percent+Shortfall against LDCE through Direct Recruitment from the open market; 75 percent through promotions from ASM.
ASM–25 percent through General Selection from specified serving matriculates in GP 1800, 1900, 2400 and 2800; 15 percent + Shortfall against General Selection through LDCE (from employees of specified categories of Commercial and Traffic Departments with qualification of graduation and a minimum service of 5 years for Group D staff); 60 percent+Shortfall against LDCE through Direct Recruitment from the open market.
There is a demand to upgrade ASMs from GP 2800 to GP 4200.
Analysis and Recommendations:-
 
The Commission notes that 7 percent of the entire cadre is presently in GP 2800, 53 percent in GP 4200 and 40 percent in GP 4600. Keeping in mind the identical educational qualifications required for the posts of ASM and SM, with practically no difference in the functions performed by them, and the historical importance of the post, it is recommended that the ASMs in GP 2800 should first be upgraded to GP 4200 and then fitted in the revised Pay Matrix. The cadre will then have 60 percent posts in Level 6 and 40 percent in Level 7. The designation of ASM may be abolished. Separate recommendations have been made regarding Dress Allowance to Station Masters. Other demands like grant of Safety and Punctuality Allowance, Outturn Allowance are not justified.

‘Three Kendriya Vidyalaya proposals approved’, HRD Minister says in interaction with Press

Union HRD Minister, Sh. Prakash Javadekar announced the approval of three Kendriya Vidyala proposals, during an informal interaction with the media persons today. The Minister also received the feedback from the media regarding the performance of the ministry and education sector, appreciating the immense experience of the media professionals in covering the ministry of Human Resource Development.

The Minister briefed the press about the approval of three Kendriya Vidyalaya proposals. It was decided to open new Kendriya Vidyalaya in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh (Railway Coach Factory) as well as in Takenpur, Madhya Pradesh (BSF Academy). It was also decided to adjust timings in the already functional Kendriya Vidyalaya in Piliphit, Uttar Pradesh to enable classes for Std XI considering the space constraints of the KV.

On NEET, the Minister clarified as follows

1. In case a candidate appeared in NEET-I and applied for NEET-II but not paid the fee, his candidature for NEET-II will not be considered as he has not submitted the fee and thus, his form has not been submitted successfully. The registration issued to any candidate is basically a unique number which is issued to all candidates who registers with the system. In the above case, result of NEET-I will be considered

2. In case, a candidate appeared in NEET-I and applied for NEET-II successfully but could not appear in NEET-II, such cases will be placed before the Oversight Committee for consideration of their NEET-I result.

3. Any other case which will come to the notice will also be placed before the Oversight Committee for taking final decisions.

7th Pay Commission allowances – Common allowances to be examined separately

7th Pay Commission allowances – Common allowances to be examined separately

Govt has formed a committee to examine the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission relating to all 196 allowances. Here is an analysis on why Common allowances should not be clubbed with other allowances

7th Pay Commission Allowances – Clubbing of examination of Common Allowances such as House Rent Allowance, Dearness Allowance, Children Education Allowance, Transport Allowance etc with lesser known and paid to few only allowances would cause more delay

7th Pay Commission Allowances – It may be recalled that 7th Pay Commission abolished as many as 51 allowances after examining 196 existing Allowances and also subsumed 37 Allowances.

As a result of such major change in 7th Pay Commission Allowances, Cabinet has decided that recommendations in respect of all the allowances are to be examined by a Committee headed by Finance Secretary.

What are those 196 allowances ?

Now, let us have a look at the a summary of recommendations in respect of all 196 allowances which have been taken for examination by 7th Pay Commission.

It could be seen that excepting certain common allowances that are granted to all Central Government Employees such as Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowances, Transport Allowance, Children Education Allowance, Tour Travelling Allowance, etc, many of the allowances are payable only to very few employees on the basis of nature of work, qualification, risk involved, place of work etc.

So, those common allowances could be examined separately without causing delay in revision and payment of these allowances.

It is of the opinion all benefiting employees out of implementation of 7th Pay Commission that clubbing these common allowances with other cadre specific allowances, examination of which involve considerable technical study. Hence it would result in more delay in taking decision on Common allowances as well by Govt.

Ultimately, it would result in considerable monetory loss to Central Government Employees as revision in allowances are paid on prospective basis only.

In fact, 7th Pay Commission itself has categorised these 196 allowances under 15 categories.

Sl

No.

Category No. of

Allowances

1 Allowances payable for Additional/Extra Duty

14

2 Allowances related to Knowledge Updates

3

4 Allowances related to Working on Holidays

3

5 Allowances related to Housing

7

6 Allowances related to Good Service

4

8 Allowances related to Risk and Hardship

51

9 Allowances for Running Staff of Indian Railways

13

10 Allowances related to Sports

2

11 Sumptuary Allowances

5

12 Allowances related to Training

2

13 Allowances related to Travel

13

14 Allowances related to Uniform

9

15 Other Allowances

52

Total:

196

It is found that all the common allowances viz., Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance, Transport Allowance, Tour Travelling Allowance and Children Education Allowance, fall under 3 categories only out of 15 categories of Allowances discussed in detail by 7th Pay Commission.

Those categories are

1. Allowances related to Housing,

2. Allowances related to Travel and

3. Other Allowances

Even if allowances under these 3 categories are given priority in examination, all the main allowances could be examined by the Committee formed by the Govt well in prior, so that there will not be more delay for revision of Common Allowances.

We hope all Staff Unions and associations would take this aspect in to consideration to get the revision of common allowances as early as possible.

NFIR – Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff

NFIR – Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff

NFIR

No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B.

Dated : 13/07/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir.

Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff – reg.

The Railway Board is aware that the Union Cabinet has decided on 29th June 2016 for implementation of revised Pay Matrices of the 7th Central Pay Commission w.e.f. 01/01/2016 duly applying 2.57 multiplier factor. The notification, in this regard, is expected from the Ministry of Finance in due course.

In this connection, the NFIR invites Railway Board’s attention to letter No. PC- VI/2008/1/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 relating to Pay Fixation tables for Running Staff which were given effect from 01/01/2006 and wherein the Fitment Factor was 2.118 for Running Staff (in view of pay element) instead of 1.86. Considering the 30% pay element of Running Stuff which is needed to be taken for arriving at multiplier factor, the Federation is of the view that the Fitment Factor for Pay Fixation of Running Staff in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix shall be “3” instead of “2.57”.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to take the above points into consideration for the purpose of determining the Fitment Factor as “3” in the case of Running Staff for granting 7th CPC Pay Fixation w.e.f. 01/01/2016.

Yours faithfully

7th Pay Commission: Key things you should avoid doing with the additional money

7th Pay Commission: Key things you should avoid doing with the additional money

7thCPC-Money

New Delhi: Very soon fresh hike in salaries will be visible due to implementation of recommendations made by the 7th Pay Commission to the government. However, it’s highly recommended that the additional money you receive is invested wisely. You should not indulge in impulsive purchases and ensure the money is used to meet your long-term financial goals. So, the money should be utilized judiciously.


Here are key things you should avoid doing with the additional money:

1) Don’t purchase additional vehicle, house

It’s advisable that you must not go for a fresh purchase of vehicle when the current one is already serving your purpose and you have other important financial goals to meet. Value of vehicle only depreciates with time and hence, doesn’t qualify as a very good choice.

What for are you purchasing a new house, if you already have a good enough residential area to live in? In case you are planning to rent a house, idea is not bad, but not best even. If you are a wise man, you will always go for a loan in addition to an amount you already have so as to observe tax benefits. However, on rough calculation, rent will only provide you yield of 2 percent against the loan cost of about 10 percent in addition to the processing fees. Also, there is no guarantee, the area that you want to rent finds a tenant as soon as you want. Same is true in the case you wan to sell the apartment considering weak realty market.

2) No need for additional foreign holiday

No logic justifies spend on additional foreign holiday in place of important financial investments. Although, you can avail tax relief on vacations in India, twice in four years, it’s not a good idea by any means.

3) Avoid unnecessary shopping

This is the common ailment that almost every Indian suffers from. When on shopping spree, we generally forget, when to start and where to stop.

4) Be judicious in gold purchase

Financial advisors always advise to only buy gold as safe haven. If you have better investment options in front of you such as tax-free bonds, ETFs and mutual funds, avoid purchase of the bullion as the returns are much less here.

5) No need for prepayment of home loans

It’s always advised that you should not prepay home loan since it provides tax benefits that actually make the loan cheap. You better pay your outstanding loans in form of credit card balances and others.

All numbers are in rupees

Basic pay = 5200

Grade pay = 1800

Total entry pay = 7000

Dearness allowance of 125% on Basic pay and Grade pay = 8750

Net difference = 1250

Employees covered: Security guard, junior attendant, senior laboratory assistant, overseer

Basic pay = 9300

Grade pay = 4200

Total entry pay =13500

Total salary = 13500+ 16875 + allowances = 30375 + allowances

New salary ( as per 7th Pay Commission) = 35400 + allowances

Net difference = 5025

Employees: TGT/PGT teacher, pharmacist, senior security inspector, senior superintendent

Existing Pay Band (15600-39100)

Basic pay = 15600

Grade pay = 5400

Total entry pay = 21000

Dearness allowance of 125% on Basic pay and Grade pay = 26250

Total salary = 21000+ 26250 + allowances = 47250 + allowances

New salary ( as per 7th Pay Commission) = 56100 + allowances

Net difference = 8850

Employees covered: Medical officer, Assistant registrar, manager, scientific officer, assistant professor, engineer

Existing Pay Band (37400-67000)

Basic pay = 37400

Grade pay = 8700

Dearness allowance of 125% on Basic pay and Grade pay = 57625

Total salary = 46100 + 57625 + allowances = 103725 + allowances

New salary ( as per 7th Pay Commission) = 118500 + allowances

Net difference = 14775

Employees covered: Professor, director, associate professors

Note: The decision regarding implementation of revised allowances is still pending and the employee will keep drawing the existing allowances for now.
