Sub: Financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the promotion from the post of Station Master (GP Rs. 4200/- pre revised Rs. 5000-8000) to Section Controller (PB-2, G.P Rs.4200/-/ Pre revised Rs. 5500-9000).

The issue regarding grant of financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the movement from the post of Station Master to Section Controller has been consideration of Board for some time. It has been decided that appointment to the post of Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs. 5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/ Rs. 5000-8000 (5th CPC) is to be treated as lateral shift instead of promotion and therefore, should not be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS.

2. However, in cases where benefit of pay fixation under Rule 1313 {FR-22(I)(a)(i)} R-II, IREC Vol-II has already been extended on appointment as Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000 (5th CPC) treating the same as promotion (including under Court’s directions) this should be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS so that double benefit of promotional pay fixation and MACPS is avoided.

3. This issue with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Subject : Fixation of pay in the merged Pay Scale of Rs. 5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 with Rs. 6500-10500 (5th CPC) in 6th CPC Pay Band-2 + Grade Pay Rs. 4200/.

Reference: Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Minutes of the National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012 circulated vide DOP&T OM F.No. 11/2/2008-JCA dated 13th September, 2012.

Sir,
Kindly refer to Para No. 8.1 of the Minutes of the Meeting of the 6 th CPC National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012. This is with regard to Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 i.e. fixation of pay in revised Pay Scale. The Staff Side in the meeting has reiterated their demand that the pay in the incumbents holding the merged Pay Scale of Rs. 5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 should have been fixed by applying the multiplication factor of 1.86 at Rs. 6500 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 implying thereby that the commencement point of the Pay Band-2 should be at Rs. 12090/- based on 6500 x 1.863 = 12090 instead of Rs. 9300/- computed by multiplying Rs. 5000 x 1.86. The Official Side has rejected the demand of the Staff Side and after discussion it was decided that on this issue a disagreement may have to be recorded for referring the same to arbitration. Even though it is more than 5 years after the above decision we are not aware that what action has been taken to implement the decision taken in the National Anomaly Committee Meeting.

In this situation the affected Central Government Employees working in different Ministries have approached Court of Law for getting justice. Recently the CAT Ernakulum Bench in its Order OA No. 180/00569/2014 delivered on 03rd of April, 2018 has upheld the demand of the Staff Side and has given the following direction to the Government of India. The relevant portion of the Judgment is given below for your kind information.

14. It has to be borne in mind that CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 is a Rule notified under the proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India made by the President and hence it has a statutory status in the eye of law. Therefore, any interpretation of the provisions in the said Rules has to be in terms of the Rules itself. Any O.M. issued by way of clarification, explanation or prescribing the modalities for fixation of initial pay of the Government Employees as per the revised pay structure can be only in terms of what is stated in the Rules.

15. As observed above, going by the definitions of the terms ‘existing basic pay‘ and ‘existing scale’ in the CDS (RP) Rules, 2008, Rule 7 fixation can be only in accordance with the afore-mentioned definitions of ‘existing basic pay‘ and ‘existing scale‘ only and not by way of administrative O.Ms and instructions contained in Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. Therefore, we are inclined to quash and set aside Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. We do so. We hold that the applicants are entitled to the declaration as prayed for and that the respondents should be directed to fix the initial pay of the applicants including all the members of Applicant No. 1 association in the revised pay structure by fixing their salary in the revised pay scale of Rs. 6500-10500 treating Rs. 6500/- as the existing basic pay as on 01.01.2006 with all consequential benefits. We order accordingly. This order shall be complied within 3 months from the date of receipt of copy of this order.”

In view of the above Judgement it is requested that without further prolonging the matter the above Judgment may be implemented by issuing a general instructions extending the benefit to all the similarly place Employees.

Awaiting for your favourable response please.

Thanking you,

Yours Faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary

Subject: Payment of arrears of pension for the period 1-1-2006 to 23-9-2012
Honorable Minister Sir.

Kindly stop driving every affected individual pensioner to the Courts of law. instead extended automatically to similarly placed pensioners Court Judgment confirmed or delivered by the Apex Court as was recommended by 5th CPC also vide their Para 126.5.
Sir. with reference to then MOS (P) answer dated 12.02.2014 in Lok Sabha to UNSTARRED QUESTION NO 3406 regarding PAYMENT OF ARREARS TO PENSIONERS your kind attention is drawn to the facts that Principal CAT order dated 1. l l .2011 in OA No.655/2010 quashed clarificatory OM dated 03.10.2008 and directed to re-fix the pension of all pre-2006 retirees w.e.f. 1.1.2006. based on the Resolution dated 29.08.2008. While dismissing WP (C) No. 1535/2012 of UOI on 29-4-2013. Hon’ble Delhi High Court upheld the verdict of the CAT-PB. Dismissing SLP (C) No.23055/2013 filed by UOI against the judgement of Hon’ble Delhi High on 29-7-2013 and then Review Petition (C) No.2492/2013 on 12-11-2013 and finally Curative Petition (C) No. 126/2014 on 30-4-2014, Hon’ble Supreme Court upheld the Judgment of the Hon’ble Delhi High Court. With this CAT verdict dated 1-11-2011. referred to, has attained legal finality,

But unfortunately instead of implementing the said judgement in letter & spirit of all pre 2006 Pensioners DOP & PW going against the judgement. has taken a decision to implement it qua petitioners.

Sir. as is admitted in the answer to Lok Sabha unstarred Q.No 3406 Honerable CAT -PB order under reference has already been implemented from an arbitrary date 24.09.2012. Thus in all legality the arrears w.e.f. 01 .01 .2006 too should he paid to all & not only to a small section of pensioners who could afford to go to the Court of law.

Sir, Bharat Pensioners Samaj in its capacity as the largest & oldest organization of C.G. Pensioners over 550 Pensioners Associations affiliated/associated to it, appeal to you to ensure correct delivery of justice by implementing the judgement under reference to all pre 2006 pensioner so that other affected Pensioners in the evening of their live are not pushed to seek justice from court of law.

We are also request you to permit inclusion of this issue in the Agenda of 25th SCOVA meeting Sheduled to be held under your Chairmanship on 24th of July 2014.

 

Thanking you in anticipation

Raising of exemption limit for Income Tax and exemption of all allowances from Income Tax: NC JCM writes to Finance Minister

Raising of exemption limit for Income Tax and exemption of all allowances from Income Tax: NC JCM writes to Finance Minister

Raising of exemption limit of Income Tax to Rs. 5 lakh for Individuals, Rs. 7 lakh for Senior Citizens above 60 years and Rs. 10 lakh for the very old and exemption of all allowances from Income Tax – Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra Secy/NC JCM writes to Finance Minister for including this demand into Union Budget

No.Nc-JCM/2014/IT

Dated: June 9, 2014

Shri Arun Jaitley,
Hon’ble Minister of Finance,
Ministry of Finance,
North Block, New Delhi

Resp. Sir,

Sub: Raising of exemption limit for Income Tax and exemption of all allowances from Income Tax

Exemption limit from Income Tax is very low and neither realistic nor justified. It is not linked with Inflation nor is it appropriately revised every year.

Fixing of exemption limit for Income Tax is done arbitrarily. No systematic norms are followed while fixing the same. There is no transparency about the norms or policy adopted for fixing the Exemption limit for Income Tax.

Low ceiling of exemption is one of the root cause of build up of huge amounts of Black Money.

It is also a major impediment in the growth and development of the National economy as the spending by the common man gets restricted due to the low ceiling of Income Tax. This, according to experts, adversely affects the National Development as a whole.

Taxing of Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance etc., erodes the real income of the Salaried Class, as these Allowances are compensatory in nature and as such should be exempted from Income Tax, as recommended by the Fifth Central Pay Commission(vide Chapter 167 of their Report).

Taxing of Pension of Senior Citizens, especially Additional Pension of the very old Senior Citizens, is totally unjustified, and as such should be exempted from Income Tax, as recommended by the Fifth Central Pay Commission.

It is, therefore, requested that:-

(i) Exemption limit for Income Tax be raised to Rs. 5 lakh for Individuals, Rs. 7 lakh for Senior Citizens above 60 years and Rs. 10 lakh for the very old – above 80 years of age.

(ii) All the allowances, i.e. Dearness Allowance/Dearness Relief, HRA and Transport Allowance, may please be exempted from the Income Tax to avoid erosion of real wages as recommended by the Fifth Pay Commission vide Chapter 167 of their Report and Para 95 of Summary of Recommendations (Please see excerpts of Fifth CPC Report attached herewith as Annexure).

(iii) Fixed Medical Allowance to Pensioners may please be exempted from Income Tax as it is reimbursement of the expenses for day-to-day medical treatment.

Yours faithfully,

Copy to: All Constituent Organizations of the National Council, JCM(Staff Side) – for information.

ANNEXURE

 

EXCERPTS FROM THE REPORT OF FIFTH PAY COMMISSION REG. EXEMPTION OF ALL ALLOWANCES FROM INCOME TAX

The Fifth Pay Commission vide Chapter 167 & Para 95 of Summary of Recommendation had recommended as under:-

“Para 95 The Commission has felt that the salaries and pensions recommended by it are not really adequate if they are to be fully taxed. Accordingly, it has recommended that all Allowances and Pensions should be paid Net of Taxes”.
The Fifth CPC in Para 167.7 had observed as under:-

‘‘If such Allowances are taxed, then either the Basic Salary gets eroded in its real value from Year to Year or the partial Reimbursement of Expenditure incurred on certain items becomes less and less with the passage of time.  In both the cases, the objective of giving Allowances is partially nullified”.

The Fifth CPC further observed in Para 167.8 that -

“We have observed that Ministry of External Affairs pays ‘Net of Tax’ Salaries to its employees on Foreign Posting. Provision for paying Net of Tax Salary already exists Under Sec.195A of the Income Tax Act. Under the Section, employees do not have to pay Income Tax on the salaries received by them and it is the liability of the employer to pay the same to the Income Tax Department.”

“The solution to the problem of the Central Government Employees in general lies in the application of this legal provision” (Fifth CPC – Para 167.9).

Indian Tax System and Effect on Central Government Employees.

Indian Tax System and Effect on Central Government Employees.

Comrades,

The Central Government has been informing the general public that crores of rupees were spent on salary and pension of Central Government Employees. In fact the following are facts out of total revenue of Central Government the share of CG Employees towards Salary, perks and pension amount is just 10.47 % of the total revenue of the Central Government which was earlier 16% at the.time of 6th CPC. They are in forming that 7th CPC will cost exchequer Rs 25,000/ thousand crores which will effect Central Government finances.

Secondly the Central Government Employees are paying tax for every rupee they earn including the all allowances, in fact the 5th CPC has recommended that the Central Government should not deduct any Income tax on these allowances. apart from income tax, all other taxes are also imposed just like other employees.

Further the Fifth Central Pay commission in its report vide para no105.12 has said that Dearness allowance should be paid free of net taxes as the DA is paid for compensation against price rise. The all allowances should also be paid net of taxes which has been examined by 5th CPC in para no 167.

Today according to various media reports, only 2 to 3 percent of Indians pay any income tax at all. In December, India’s finance minister, Palaniappan Chidambaram, said that 2.89 percent of the population (about 36 million people) filed income taxes. (In contrast, in the U.S., about 45 percent of the population pays taxes, which means that, despite India’s much-larger population, more Americans than Indians actually pay taxes.) CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS .

Totally a Central Government employees pay upto 30% of their salary as all forms of tax to the Central Government, even if these is any increase of salary upto 40% then also,part of the increase will also go to Central Government as revenue.

India’s tax revenues nearly about Rs 14 lakh crore currently can be increased to over Rs 40 lakh crore. if proper taxation policy is adopted , that means majority of citizens of the country should be uniformly taxed.

Corporate tax collection is at Rs 2.05 lakh crore, the personal Income Tax collection, however, was at Rs 1.19 lakh crore that is just 10% of the total revenue collection.

According to Central Government sources Corporates owe over Rs 2.46 lakh crore in taxes, total tax dues to the Central Government is around Rs 5 to 6 lakhs crores. The amount paid to CG employees for the 7th CPC is just 5% of tax dues to the Central Government. CLICK HERE FOR REPORT so there should not be much financial panic on 7th CPC impact on common man.

If these dues are properly collected then Central Government can spend lot of money on the welfare schemes and also pay the Central Government Employees being a model employer handsomely pay us on par with the global market, Software companies.

So comrades , the Indian tax system should be re modeled so that proper tax system is there and every citizen of India should have uniform tax policy andCentral Government revenue should also improve and also the Government Employees are paid need based minimum wage or a decent wage, also filling up of vacant post in Central Government will also give employment to younger generation.

Comradely yours

The Secretary,
Govt of India, Min of Defence,

New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Granting of 3rd  MACP in GP 4600/- after Restructuring of Cadre of Artisan Staff in Defence Establishments in modification of recommendations of 6th  CPC – Clarification regarding.

Reference: 1. MOD I.D. No. 11(5)/2009-D (Civ-I), Dated 28.12.2013

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to S.R.O. 13(E) Dated 04.05.1989 / S.R.O.-191 dated 28.11.1994 / S.R.O.-66 dated 27.05.2003 “Indian Ordnance Factories Group C Supervisory and Non-Gazetted Cadre (Recruitment and Conditions of Service) Rules” which stipulates that the post of Chargeman (Tech) will be filled up by-

(a) 25% by direct recruitment after adjustment of surplus and transfer,
(b) 25% by Limited Departmental Examination and
(c) 50% by promotion from panel prepared by relevant DPC for each category
and on failure of recruitment by promotion, by transfer failing which by direct recruitment {as mentioned in Point No. 2 of Annexure to OFB Letter No. 01/CR/A/I/Vol.II/658, dated 21.02.2011}.

It further stipulates that the post of Chargeman will be filled up by Promotion from Draughtsman or equivalent in scale of Rs.1200-2040 with 3 years service and by promotion from Highly Skilled Grade-I with 3 years of regular service failing which from Highly Skilled Grade-II with 6 years regular service in respectively category.

The above Recruitment Rule (SRO) nowhere says that the post of Chargeman will be filled by promotion from Master Craftsman.

It is to be noted that the post of Master Craftsman was created in pursuance of the recommendations of the 3rd Central Pay Commission made in Chapter 19 of Volume I of its Report, vide MOD letter No. 1(2)/80/D(Civ-I), dated 21.09.1982 in the pay scale of Rs. (425 – 640) at par with the Chargeman. Para 2(iv) of the letter stipulates that the incumbents selected for the post of Master Craftsman will forego their normal promotion to the supervisory grade; i.e., Chargeman.

The pay scale of Master Craftsman & Chargeman was revised to Rs. (1400 – 2300) as per 4th CPC but the 5th  CPC revised the pay scale of Master Craftsman to Rs. (4500 – 7000) whereas Chargeman was revised & upgraded to Rs. (5000 – 8000) w.e.f. 01.01.1996.

Subsequently, Restructuring of Cadre of Artisan Staff in Defence Establishments in modification of recommendations of the 5th CPC has been introduced vide MOD letter No.11(1)/2002/D(Civ-I), dated 20.05.2003 which states that the post of Master Craftsman shall not be part of the hierarchy and the placement in this grade will not be treated as promotion for Highly Skilled Grade either under normal promotion rules or under ACP Scheme. Para 4(iv) of the letter states that the post of Master Craftsman (Rs. 4500 – 7000) shall continue to be considered as Highly Skilled grade for the purpose of promotion to the grade of Chargeman-II (Rs. 5000 – 8000).

It is worth to mention here that Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has already decided that the administrative instructions cannot be issued in contravention of the statutory rules {C&AG of India vs. Mohan Lal Mehrotra, 1991 Lab IC (SC) 2328, para 22} and that there can be no dispute with the proposition that a rule framed under the Proviso to Art. 309 of the Constitution cannot be modified by an executive order {State of Maharashtra & Anr vs Chandrakant Anant Kulkarni & Ors: 1981 AIR 1990, 1982 SCR (1) 665}

The Supreme Court has held in the case of “Sant Ram Sharma vs State Of Rajasthan & Anr : 1967 AIR 1910, 1968 SCR (1) 111” as under:-

    “It is true that Government cannot amend or supersede statutory rules by administrative instructions, but if the rules are silent on any particular point Government can fill up the gaps and supplement the rules and issue instructions not inconsistent with the rules already framed.”

Contrary to above, vide letter cited under reference MOD has communicated that the idea of exclusion of the post of Master Craftsman (MCM) from further promotions in the hierarchy (Chargeman in the same Grade Pay) has not found favour with the Defence Finance.

We are surprised to construe from above that Defence Finance may promote any person on any post which may be against the provisions of relevant Recruitment Rules (SRO) made under the proviso of Article 309 of the Constitution of India.

Here, we would like to draw your attention to Para 3.1 of Govt. of India, DoP&T O.M. No. 22011/5/86-Estt.(D), dated 10th April, 1989 issued as consolidated instructions on Departmental Promotion Committee, which stipulates as under:-

   “ ….. A vacancy shall be filled in accordance with the recruitment rules in force on the date of vacancy, unless rules made subsequently have been expressly given retrospective effect. Since amendments to the recruitment rules normally have only prospective application, the existing vacancies should be filled as per the recruitment rules in force. Holding of DPC meetings need not be delayed or postponed on the ground that recruitment rules for a post are being reviewed/amended.”

It is worth to mention here that Para 2 of Annexure – I of DOP&T O.M. No. 35034/3/2008-Estt. (D), dated 19.05.2009 of MACPS provides that the MACPS envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of the recommended revised pay bands and grade pay as given in Section I, Part – A of the first schedule of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 and which is as under;

Grade Pay Rs. 1800/- Grade Pay Rs. 4200/-
Grade Pay Rs. 1900/- Grade Pay Rs. 4600/-
Grade Pay Rs. 2000/- Grade Pay Rs. 4800/-
Grade Pay Rs. 2400/- Grade Pay Rs. 5400/-
Grade Pay Rs. 2800/- Grade Pay and so on

Hence, a person who is drawing grade pay of Rs. 4200 due to 02 promotions/ACPs and completes 30 years regular service on or after 01.09.2008 will be granted financial upgradation under 03rd MACPS in grade pay of Rs. 4600/-.

Therefore, you are requested to review the referred clarifications and withdraw the same without further delay and clarify that since the post of MCM was not in hierarchy of artisan staff cadre upto 31.12.2005, the Highly Skilled worker/MCM who were already drawing the pay scale of Rs. (5000 – 8000) under ACP Scheme may be considered for further financial upgradations in the next Grade Pay (Rs. 4600) in the hierarchy of Grade Pays.

Thanking you.

Yours Sincerely
