Revision of monthly remuneration to the contract para-medical staff in Railways

As per 7th CPC monthly remuneration to the contract para-medical staff in Railways w.e.f. 01.01.2016: NFIR requests

NFIR

National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

No. II/57/Part I

Dated: 20/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of monthly remuneration to the contract para-medical staff in Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2004/RC-4/SC/2 dated 19/07/2005.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/57/Part I dated 15/05/2017.

NFIR vide letter No. dated 15/05/2017 has requested the Railway Board to revise the monthly remuneration to contract para-medical staff on Zonal Railways etc., in view of revision of pay structure of regular employees w.e.f. 01/01/2016 pursuant to Government’s decision on 7th CPC report. The Federation feels sad to mention that the Railway Board have not yet issued orders revising the monthly remuneration rates to the contract para-medical staff.

The Railway Board may kindly appreciate the fact that in the past when the pay scales of regular employees were revised, the monthly remuneration rates of contract para-medical staff were also revised. On the same analogy, the revision of remuneration of monthly rates to contract para- medical staff is required to be done for the existing contract para-medical staff in the Railways w.e.f. January 2016. They may also be granted privilege pass and medical facility as a special case.

Federation therefore requests to expedite action for upward revision of monthly remuneration of contract medical staff with effect from January, 2016 and also grant privilege pass and medical facilities.

Yours faithfully
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Pay anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways and pay disparity with other Supervisory cadres of the Central Government services

7th CPC Pay Anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Railway Accounts with other Central Government Service: All India Railway Accounts Staff Association writes to Ministry of Finance:

Chennai
09-2017

To
Sri ARUN JAITLEY
Honorable Minister for finance,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Pay anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways and pay disparity with other Supervisory cadres of the Central Government services.

The All India Railway Accounts staff Association while deposing before the 7th CPC had brought to the notice of the Commission that subsequent to the acceptance of the VI CPC recommendations a peculiar anomaly arose where a junior drawing higher Grade Pay than the Senior in the cadre of Section Officer (Accounts). The Committee of the 7th Pay Commission observed that the above anomalous situation purely arose on circumstantial grounds and needs to be rectified. Thus in its report, the Commission found merit in the above contention and recommended that Seniors must be given the benefit of stepping up and further in line with their recommendations for organized Accounts cadres, it further recommended that Section Officer (Accounts) Railways in GP Rs. 4800 should be upgraded on completion of four years service, to the existing GP5400 (PB-2) viz., level 9 in the Pay Matrix, on non functional basis. ( Ref: Para No 11.40.83 of 7th CPC).

The 7th Central Pay Commission acknowledged that the skill sets of the Organized Accounts cadres are fairly higher and the Organized Accounts Cadre have to compulsorily pass various stringent examinations for promotions. Moreover, Sr. Section Officer ( Accounts) had been assigned complete parity with Section Officers (SO) of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS) and they had been granted the pay scale of Rs.6500-10500 (S-12) w.e.f.01-01-1996 in accordance with 6th CPC. Further, it was also noticed that parity between Organized Accounts and the cadre of Section Officers of CSS was disturbed by granting non functional up gradation to GP Rs. 5400 (PB-3) after four years of service to Section Officers of CSS only. The Commission also noted that , non-functional up-gradation from GP Rs. 4800 to GP. Rs. 5400 (PB-3) on completion of four years of service, has been accorded to a number of posts by the Govt. of India in 2008. The Commission also found no reason and justification to deprive the benefit of up gradation to GP Rs. 5400 to the officers of the Organized Accounts Cadres who are in GP RS. 4800.

Thus, the Pay Commission recommended that, all officers in the Organized Accounts Cadres ( in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, Defence Accounts Department, Indian Civil Accounts Organization, Railways, Posts and Telecommunications) who are in GP Rs. 4800, should be upgraded on completion of four years of service to GP 5400 (PB-2) viz. pay level 9 in the Pay matrix ( Para 11.12.140 of 7th CPC.)

To utter dismay, the Government of India while accepting the recommendations of the Pay Commission on up-gradation of posts, left out the Ministry of Railways and Defense for non functional up-gradation GP 5400(PB-3) after four years of service for the categories of AAOs (Finance Division of Defense, Ministry of Defense) and Senior Section Officer (Accounts) Senior Traveling Inspector of Accounts and Senior Inspector of Stores Accounts, Ministry of Railways with the remarks that it will be examined by DOPT for taking a comprehensive view in the matter`. The DOPT took almost nine months and transferred the issue on 7th April 2017 to the Ministry of Finance(Expenditure). In other words benefit of Up gradation to GP 5400 after completion of four years of service has been granted to all other Organized Accounts Cadres of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, Indian Civil Accounts Organization and Posts and Telecommunication.

The Ministry of Defense in their recent ID Note No 369/C/2017 dated 23-3-2017 also recommended that above benefit be extended to the Assistant Accounts Officer (AAO) of Defense Accounts Department, On the other hand, DOPT in their communication ID note No.1198678 /16 – Est (Pay-1) dated 2-2-2017 to the Executive Director Pay Commission 111, Ministry of Railways, advised the Ministry of Railways to consult Department of Expenditure in terms of Government of India (Allocation of Business Rules). It shows the indifferent approach of Government towards Railway Accounts Employee.

The Supervisory Cadre of the Accounts Department of the Railways is also entrusted with the responsibilities of presenting the Railway Accounts on widely accepted accrual based Accounting in addition to presenting the Government accounts as per requirements laid down in the Constitution of India , as announced by Hon’ble Minister of Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhu, in his budget speech.

It would be highly appreciated, if the benefit of grant of GPRs. 5400 is extended to Supervisory Cadre of the Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways on completion of four years of service in GP Rs. 4800 who are the only left in this case. This will also end pay parity between the organised accounts cadres of the Government of India.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,
(REJI GEORGE)
General Secretary

Subsidy of up to Rs.2.60 lakh now available till March, 2019

The central government today announced that the benefit of interest subsidy of about Rs.2.60 lakh on home loans under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) will now be available for beneficiaries belonging to Middle Income Groups (MIG) fir fifteen more months beyond December this year.

This was announced by Shri Durga Shanker Mishra, Secretary (Housing & Urban Affairs), Government of India, while addressing the ‘Real Estate and Infrastructure Investors Summit’ organized by NAREDCO, in Mumbai today. He said that the government decided to give more time for MIG beneficiaries to avail interest subsidy under PMAY(Urban).

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, in his announcement on the 31st of December last year made applicable the Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) under PMAY(Urban) to MIG, till the end of December this year. Under CLSS, MIG beneficiaries with annual income of above Rs.6.00 lakhs and up to Rs.12.00 lakhs would get an interest subsidy of 4.00% on a 20 year loan component of Rs.9.00 lakhs. Those with annual exceeding Rs.12.00 lakhs and up to Rs.18.00 lakhs would get interest subsidy of 3.00%.

Reiterating the Government’s commitment to meet the Housing for All targets in urban areas by 2022, Shri Mishra urged private investors to invest in affordable housing, being promoted by the Government in a big way with several incentives and concessions.

Shri Mishra later an hour long discussions with a 30 member delegation of NAREDCO and assured them that the Government would look into various issues raised by them in all sincerity and possible interventions would be considered.

The delegation referred to what they called anomalies in GST rates for completed and under construction housing projects, Stamp Duties being higher and kept outside the purview of GST, scarcity of land, delays in granting construction permits, lack of coordination among different municipal agencies, RBI’s high risk weightage for lending to real estate sector despite Real Estate Act coming into force, inadequate bank financing despite Non-Performing Assets in respect of construction being much less than other sectors etc.

The delegation expressed concern over GST and other taxes accounting for over one third of the cost of residential properties.

Minister of Housing & Urban Affairs Shri Hardeep Singh Puri, who addressed the summit yesterday suggested to NAREDCO to have a detailed discussion with Secretary(HUA) for resolving the issues so that affordable housing could be given a boost.

GST: Clarification about Transition Credit

Clarification about Transition Credit

There are lot of speculations in the media about the credit of Rs. 65,000 crore claimed by taxpayers in respect of Central Excise and Service Tax in the pre-GST period. Some people are under the impression that because of Rs. 65,000 crore claimed as transition credit, the income of Government this month has plummeted.

Firstly, Rs. 65,000 crore is the credit claimed by the taxpayers in the TRANS 1 form as their balance of credit. It does not mean that they would have used all of this credit for payment of their output tax liability for the month of July 2017.

It may be clarified that this is far from the truth. Secondly, it may be clarified that an amount of Rs. 95,000 crore, which was received in the month of August 2017 for GST, is the amount actually paid in cash other than availing credit.

Thirdly, this figure of transition credit claimed is also not incredibly high, since Rs.1.27 lakh crore of credit of Central Excise and Service Tax was lying as closing balance as on 30th June, 2017 as per department’s record. This includes credit in Central Excise as well as Service Tax. Of course, some of these credits may not be admissible under GST regime, for example the credits, which are blocked under Section 17 (5) of CGST Act or which are not covered under the definition of GST. Also, some of the credits, which are claimed in TRANS 1 form may be under litigation and, therefore, it may not be available to the assesse to carry forward or utilisation. It is from this angle that CBEC is examining the transition credits, which are claimed by the assessees in TRANS I form in certain cases.

It is possible that some assessees would have committed mistake in filing TRANS 1 form of admissible credit. It has, therefore, been decided to provide facility for revision of TRANS 1 by the GST Council. This facility would be available by middle of October 2017 and assessees are requested to revise their TRANS 1 form before 31st October, 2017, so that they themselves can remove the error.
