Grant of 1st Class Privilege Pass to the ASMs GP 2800/- upgraded to GP 4200/- (PB-2)/7th CPC Pay Level 6

7th CPC Pay Level 6

No. I/15/Part III

Dated: 22/04/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of 1st Class Privilege Pass to the ASMs GP 2800/- upgraded to GP 4200/- (PB-2)/7th CPC Pay Level 6-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to letter No. E(W)2008/PS 5-1/38 dated 06/01/2011, according to which employees working in GP 4200/- (PB-2) have been made eligible to receive 1st Class Privilege Pass. In this context, NFIR desires to convey that with the upgradation of the posts of ASM (GP 2800/PB-1) to GP 4200/PB-2 pursuant to implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC as communicated vide Board’s letter dated 02/08/2016, cited under reference (Note 2 of Annexure 13) the ASMs have been upgraded from VIth CPC GP 2800 to GP 4200/- (PB-2) consequently placed in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level 6 with effect from 01/01/2016. They are therefore eligible for 1st class pass automatically. Reports received at this that on a few Zonal Railways, the 1st Class Pass entitlement is being denied on the plea that separate orders have not yet been issued by the Railway Board.

In this connection, NFIR re-iterates that Board’s instructions dated 06/01/2011 are very clear and therefore Zonal Railways should not deny 1st Class Privilege Pass to those ASMs who have been placed in GP 4200 (PB-2)/Pay Matrix Level 6.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarification to the Zonal Railways for granting 1st Class Privilege Pass to those ASMs placed in GP 4200/Pay Level 6 without causing any hurdle. Copy of clarificatory instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

JCM Staff Side Agenda Items for discussion in the ensuing standing committee Meeting

JCM Staff Side Agenda Items for discussion in the ensuing standing committee Meeting

No.IV/NFIR/SCM/Pt.VI

13-04-2017

The General Secretaries of
Affiliated Unions of NFIR

Dear Brother,

Sub: JCM (Staff Side) Agenda Items for discussion in the ensuing standing committee Meeting – reg.

Federation gives below gist of agenda items (which are related to railway staff) sent to the DOP&T for discussion in the next meeting of Standing Committee (NC/JCM)

JCM-Staff-Side-Agenda-NFIR

1. To formulate a policy for direct appointment of Trained Trade Apprentices of Central Government Industrial Establishments like Railways, Defence etc. as per the amended provisions of section-22 of Apprentice Act 1961.

The Government of India amended the Apprentice Act 1961 as Apprentices (Amended) Act, 2014 (No.29 of 2014) dated 5th December,2014 incorporating the following provision in Section-22 of the principal Act.

Section-22:  “Every employer shall formulate its own policy for recruiting any apprentice who has completed the period of apprenticeship training in his Establishment”.

 

It was agreed in the Central Apprenticeship council meeting under the Chairmanship of Minister of State (IC) for Labour & Employment on 8th April,2015 that M/o Labour will frame the guidelines for Govt. Industrial Establishments & PSUs for recruitment of Apprentices after completion of training, on the suggestion of Union representatives. Hence the Apprentices selected through entrance examinations etc., are facing undue hardships in getting the appointment when recruitment takes place in the establishment where they were trained. Therefore it was proposed that Govt. of India, as Employer, will formulate the following policy for recruitment of Trained Trade Apprentices.

 

Determination of Batch-wise seniority.

1. All Apprentice training institutes under Government Industrial Establishments shall maintain the seniority list of Ex-Trade apprentices in respective trades.

2. The Apprentices trained in the earlier batch will be enbloc senior to the apprentices of the subsequent batches.

3. While maintaining the batch-wise seniority, marks/grading obtained in NAC examination conducted by NCVT will be the criteria for determining intra-batch seniority of the apprentices.

4. In case the marks/grading is identical for two or more individuals, the date of birth should be the criteria for deciding the seniority.

 

Filling up of the vacancies

As and when sanction is accorded for making recruitment in the skilled grade of various trades Ex-Trade Apprentices of respective Government Industrial Establishments will be considered for such recruitment in the relevant Trade.

 

The above draft policy proposed by the staff side is requested to be considered favourably by the Government for implementation.

 

2. Revision of the benefit of Deposit linked Insurance coverage from GPF.

As per Rule 33-B of GPF Rules on the death of a subscriber an additional amount not exceeding Rs.60,000/- payable under Deposit linked insurance scheme of GPF to the dependents of a deceased employee. This rate has not been enhanced for so many years. Similar benefit for a depositor in EPF covered under the Employees Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme 1976 is enhanced to Rs.6,00,000/-. It is therefore requested that government may consider to enhance the limit of Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme from GPF.

 

3. Implementation of the recommendation of 6th CPC with regard to Limited Departmental competitive Examination for post in Group B and Group C.

As per the 6th CPC recommendation in para 6.1.7, the employee in PB-1 with GP Rs.1800/- will be eligible to appear in LDCE for a post in PB-2 with GP Rs.4800/- provided he/she possesses the necessary qualification.

 

After 6th CPC recommendation, the number of employees in GP Rs.1800/- have acquired higher qualifications & became eligible for higher post but are not being allowed to apply for the higher post through LDCE, since the above recommendation of 6th CPC has not yet been implemented by the government.

In view of the changed circumstances, those employees in GP Rs.1800/- who have acquired the higher qualifications, their initiative & interest be considered & the Government may kindly implement the recommendation of 6th CPC.

 

4. Endorsement of Higher Education not mentioned in the PVR Forms in the Service Record of the Employees.

In column 10 of PVR (Attestation Form) i.e. Educational Qualifications, the candidates used to fill this column with minimum qualification for the post for which they are selected for appointment, due to the insufficient space in the column. However, after appointment, when they apply for endorsing their higher qualifications in the service Record, the Administration issues ‘ show Cause Notice’ to them for not disclosing their Educational qualification in the Attestation Form.

 

Since this information was not given by them due to the insufficient space in the column of attestation Form, the eventuality may not be treated as hiding the information & hence, it is requested that DOP&T may issue instructions to endorse the higher qualification in the Service Record of employees, even if it was mentioned in the PVR Form.

 

5. Restoration of the Advances withdrawn by the 7th CPC.

The Government has accepted the recommendation of 7th CPC to withdraw (i) Natural calamity advance (ii) Festival Advance (iii) LTC and TA advances (iv) Medical advance (V) Education advance & (f) vehicle advances including cycle advance. This has resulted undue hardships to the Government Employees.

Since the advances are recovered in monthly instalments from employees, it is requested that Government may restore these advances as a welfare measure.

 

6. MACP to the employees who have completed 10 years or 20/30 years on the date of their retirement.

The employees who have completed 10 years in the same grade/pay level or those who have completed 20/30 years on the last working day of the month which happens to be the superannuation/retirement day of the concerned employee, are denied MACP benefit on the pretext that they are eligible for MACP only on the next working day. Since the concerned employee retired one day before the denial of benefit. he is subjected to huge loss in pension & other terminal benefits.

 

In view of the above it is requested that the employees who have completed 10 years or 20/30 years on the date of their retirement may be granted MACP benefit on the last working day relaxing the relevant provisions in the MACP Scheme.

 

7. Payment of equal pay to equal work to the workers/employees engaged in all Govt. Offices either through contractors or directly as daily rated/contingent/casual workers as per the direction of the Supreme court.

Hon’ble supreme court delivered a judgement in the civil appeal No.213 of 2013 in the case of State of punjab Vs.jagjit singh and others citing the obligation of the Government of India to abide by the International covenant on Economic, social and cultural rights, 1966 to which the central government is a signatory.

Quoting the provisions under Article 7 of the covenant viz. (a) Remuneration which provides all workers as a minimum wages & equal remuneration for equal work (b) Safe and healthy working conditions; (c) Equal opportunities for everyone to be promoted in his employment to an appropriate higher level, subject to no consideration other than those of seniority and competence & (d) Rest, leisure and reasonable limitation of working hours and periodical holidays with pay as well as remuneration for public holidays and various previous rulings and judgements of the Court under Article 141 of the constitution, Hon’ble supreme Court directed the State of Punjab to provide equal pay for equal work to all daily wage employees, ad-hoc appointees, employees appointed on casual basis, contractual employees and the like. concludingly, Court has decided that all such employees are entitled for wages at the minimum of the pay scale.

 

Staff Side therefore requests the Government to issue explicit instructions that the employees/workers engaged on casual/contingent/temporary/daily rated basis including those through contractors are given the rate of the minimum of the lowest pay scale and a scheme for regularization of such appointees is drawn so that these employees would be absorbed as permanent workers over a period of time.

 

8. Revision of Ex-gratin to CPF/SRPF retirees.

In acceptance of the demand of the Staff Side at the National council, .JCM, ex-gratia payments were made to the CPF/SRPF retirees. These rates fixed in 1988 were revised on 1.11.1997 and again from 2006. Presently the rates are as under:

 

Group ‘A’ Rs.3000/-

Group ‘B’ Rs.1000/-

Group ‘C’ Rs. 750/-

Group ‘D’ Rs. 650/-

 

Taking into account the fact that pay and pension were revised on the basis of the 7th CPC’s recommendation, a revision of rates of the ex-gratia to the CPF/SRPF retirees whose number is dwindling every day is warranted. Staff Side therefore requests that the rates may be appropriately revised applying the very same rationale adopted in the case of civil pensioners.

 

9. Dispense with the practice of ignoring the fraction while computing the Dearness Allowance.

For the sake of easy computation of DA the practice of ignoring the fraction was initiated. The quantum loss to the beneficiaries in the beginning was meager. Now that the administrative difficulties which prompted for ignoring the fraction has been greatly eased due to computerization and taking into account the loss for six months is no more meager, it is necessary that the practice is dispensed with. For example, the next instalment of DA is likely to be 2.95% whereas the orders would be issued for grant of only 2%. In the case of an employee, whose basic pay is Rs.50,000, the loss per month in that case would be Rs.475/-. It is pertinent to mention in this connection that in the case of Bank employees, the practice of ignoring the fraction is not followed. Staff Side therefore requests that the DA hereafter be computed without ignoring the fraction.

 

10. Include unmarried/widow/divorcee sister in the definition of family for family pension.

The scope of Family pension under Rule 52 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 was extended to the dependent disabled siblings (brother and sister) of Central Government servant/pensioners vide DOP&PW 0.1. No.1/15/2008-P&PW(E) dated 17th August, 2009. There are cases wherein an employee/pensioner remains unmarried and leaves behind dependent unmarried/widow/divorcee sister/sisters. Though cases of such types may be few and far between, nonetheless, such hapless ladies need to be taken care by the Government lest they should be left to fend for themselves, after the death of Government Servant/pensioner on whom they were fully dependent before his/her death. We request to include dependent unmarried/widow/divorcee sister/sisters in the definition of family for the purpose of family pension.

 

11. Removal of conditions of being at the “Headquarters” for a few days in a month to claim the Transport Allowance.

In regard to the grant of Transport Allowance to Government Employees it was pointed out that in many organizations viz. Central Ground Water Board, Survey of India, Geological Survey of India, Indian Bureau of Mines, Postal workers and Indian Audit and Accounts Department etc., the employees are required to be in field formations on duty for months together. Because of the condition stipulated that the employees must be at the Headquarters for certain number of days in a month, many of them are denied transport allowance as the exigencies of work entrusted to them make them to be away from liquors for months together. The denial is, therefore, a double punishment in as much they are to be away from their family and also are asked to bear the financial loss due to the denial of transport allowance. This apart, once the Transport allowance is denied they automatically do not become entitled for City Compensatory allowance also. Staff Side therefore requests that this condition may be removed for the grant of Transport Allowance.

 

12. Transport allowance in the case of Physically handicapped person at the double rate and deduction of the same if one is on short leave. To be dispensed with.

Transport allowance is admissible for physically handicapped persons at the double the rates as per the extant instructions on the subject. This is provided for the reason that the physically handicapped person has to take the help of another person to travel and reach the office. However, if the physically handicapped person is on leave (EL, HPL etc.) proportionate amount of transport allowance pertaining to the helper is deducted. Normally transport allowance is denied only when a person is on Earned leave for a period exceeding one month. There appears to be no rationale to deduct the proportionate amount of transport allowance pertaining to the helper in the case of physically handicapped person. Either a clarification may be issued to dispense with the practice if the same has been initiated by the Zonal Accounts Officers on an interpretation of the rules. If the pertinent rule itself has to be amended, the same may be done as no helper can be asked that he must suffer and sacrifice the allowance because the physically handicapped persons for some domestic reason could not go to office on a particular day in a month.

 

13. Counting full service of Temporary Casual Labourers for pensionary and retirement benefits in Railways – reg.

The Staff Side had discussed its demand for counting full service of temporary status of casual labourers for pensionary and retirement benefits at the level of Railway Ministry. Consequently, the Railway Ministry had agreed and accordingly proposal was sent to the Ministry of Finance and DoP&T seeking clearance. Unfortunately, the MoF/DoP&T have not accorded approval.

 

(a) The Casual Labourers in Railways had attained temporary status on completion of prescribed days of continuous working and got the benefits admissible to temporary Railway/Government employees such as regular Pay Scale, Medical facility etc.,

(b) The Railway Administrations have however taken abnormally long periods to absorb them as regular staff although regular posts were vacant.

(C) The status of casual labourers in railways after acquiring temporary status (termed as Temporary employees) is exactly similar to the substitutes in whose case, the total service from the date of attainment of temporary status is counted tar reckoning qualifying service for pensioner benefits,

(d) Various CATS, High Courts and even the Apex Court have given decisions against the differential treatment between the casual labour and substitutes particularly when both attained temporary status and directed to treat them at par so far as reckoning the service from the date of temporary status till the date of regularization for pensioner benefits etc.,
(e) The SLPs filed by the Union of India before the Apex Court in a few cases of casual labourers were dismissed and the Hon’ble Supreme Court had directed the Union of India to calculate Pension and other retrial benefits payable to the retiring/retired employees, taking into account the 100% temporary status service.

Staff Side therefore requests to consider the above valid points and accord approval for counting total temporary status service of Casual Labourers for pensionary benefits in Railways.

 

14. Ensure Parity in Pay Scale of All Stenographers, Assistants and Ministerial Staff in Subordinate Offices and in IA&AD & Organized Accounts Cadres with Central Secretariat Staff by upgrading their Pay Scales.

The question of parity, as has been rightly pointed out by 7th CPC, is a settled matter. It is the Department of Personnel which is the Cadre Controlling department of Central Secretariat Cadre that unsettle the parity every time. What is required is to grant higher pay scale at par with Ministerial and Stenographer cadres of Central Secretariat and the similarly placed cadres in the field and subordinate offices and lA&AD & Organized Accounts cadre.

 

15. Counting of Pre-appointment induction training period as qualifying service for grant of financial up-gradation under MACP Scheme.

As per MAP orders “service rendered on ad-hoc contract basis before regular appointment on pre appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning as qualifying service for financial up-gradation under MACPS”. It is requested that pre-appointment induction training period followed by regular appointment may be reckoned as qualifying service for grant of MACP, as it is already counted as qualifying service for the purpose of increment.

 

16. Enhancement of Bonus Ceiling Limit of Casual Labourers consequent on enhancement of Bonus Calculation Ceiling of Central Government Employees.

At present, casual labourers are paid Rs,12001- as maximum bonus. This amount was fixed when the bonus calculation ceiling of Central Government employees was enhanced to Rs.35001-. As the bonus calculation ceiling of Central Government employees is enhanced to Rs.7000/-, it is requested that the ceiling of casual labourers may also be enhanced.

 

17. Grant of Corresponding 7th CPC Pay Scale to those officials who are appointed on compassionate grounds and drawing pre-revised pay )with out grade pay) for want of matriculation qualification.

As per DOP&T orders, those compassionate appointment candidates who do not posses 10th Standard qualification are to be appointed in the minimum pay scale (without grade pay) till they acquire 10th standard qualification. The minimum pay of such candidates fixed as per 6th CPC pay scale is yet to be revised. Action may be taken to revise the minimum pay as per 7th CPC recommendations.

18. Implementation of 7th CPC recommendations – Upward revision of pay scales of various categories.

The VII CPC has recommended up-graded pay scales to certain specific categories of the Railway Staff, but regrettably the matter stands referred to the DOP&T (GOI), for taking a comprehensive view in the matter.

The categories which have been recommended up-graded pay scales are appended below:-

S.No. Post Relevant Para of 7th CPC Report VI CPC Grade Pay Grade Pay recommended by 7th CPC
1 SSO (ACs)/Sr. Traveling Inspector (A/Cs)/Sr.Inspector (stores A/cs) 11.40.83 Rs.4800 Rs.5400 (PB-II)
2 Chemical & Metallurgical Asstt. 11.40.124 Rs.4200 Rs.4600
3 Chemical & Metallurgical Supdt. 11.40.124 Rs.4600 Rs.4800
4 Asstt. Chemist & Metallurgist 11.40.124 Rs.4800 Rs.5400 (PB-II)

It may be appreciated that, 7th CPC has recommended above mentioned upgrade pay scales to these categories of staff after examining in detail their recruitment qualifications, nature of duties and vertical and horizontal relativity, while these recommendations of 7th CPC should have been implemented by the Ministry of Railways without any reference to DOP&T (GOI), but the same were referred to DOP&T for taking a view.

since sufficient time has already been elapsed, it is urged that, necessary reply of the DOP&T in regard to the above should be communicated to the Ministry of Railways, so that these recommendations of 7th CPC are implemented in the Railways without any further delay.

19. Acute shortage of doctors in the Railways – Failure of the UPSC to send doctors in the Railways.

The patients visiting to Railway Hospitals and dispensaries are a dejected lot as there is acute shortage of staff and doctors. The hospitals and dispensaries are running inadequate strength of doctors against the sanctioned strength. Railway hospitals have a barren look as the treatment centre, meant for providing medical service to departmental staff and their family members, miserably fails to serve its purpose due to acute shortage of doctors. The situation is worsening day by day.

As against the large number of doctors recruited through UPSC for the Indian Railways, only a few are joining for the reason that they are not getting their choice place of posting. They are also not able to do their higher studies for which they often leave their jobs. Govt, of India should formulate policy in this regard. UPSC should also recruit specialist Doctors as per policy for the Indian Railways for up-gradation of health services over the Indian Railways. Possibilities should also be explored by the Government to have their dedicated Medical colleges on the Indian Railways, so that after training they could be retained for the Railways as is being done by the AFMC, Pune.

20. Implementation of pay scales recommended by the VII CPC in case of several common categories.

The 7th CPC in Chapter 7.7 of its recommendations have recommended specific pay scales for certain  “Common Categories”. Pay Scale recommended for Medical Laboratory Staff have been specifically dealt under Para 7.7.25 to 7.7.30 of 7th CPC Report. Government of India have already accepted these recommendations of the VII CPC and the same are to be implemented by the Ministry of Railways (Railway Board). There appears to be some confusion prevailing on this issue in regard to implementation of these recommendations of the VII CPC in respect of Medical Laboratory Staff.

staff Side, therefore, desires that the pay scales and nomenclature of the revised posts of Medical Laboratory Staff, as recommended by the VII CPC under Para 7.7.29 of Chapter VII, be implemented w.e.f 1.1.2016 with all Consequential benefits as deep sense of frustration is prevailing among these staff who are fully engaged in pathological investigation of the railway patients for their proper diagnosis.

21. Recommendations of the VII CPC on the Allowances.

i) The VII CPC under Para 11.40.50 (Page No.738 of the report) has recommended special train controllers allowance of Rs.5,000 p.m. to the Train Controllers.

ii) Under Para 8.10.75 (Cell Name: R3H2) of their report, the VII CPC has recommended for RHA of Rs.2,700 p.m. to Track Maintainers/Trackmen./

iii) Special Running Staff Allowance (Para 11.40.62, Page No.740 of the VII CPC Report).

Loco pilot (Mail & Express ) Rs.2,250 p.m
Motormen Loco pilot (Passenger) Rs.1,125 p.m
Loco Pilot (Goods) Rs. 750 p.m
Guard (Mail & Express) Rs.1,125 p.m
Guard (Passenger) Rs. 750 p.m.

As per VII CPC report, Dearness Allowance will be payable on this allowance. This allowance also be extended to Loco shunter, guard (Goods) and Asstt. Loco pilot.

Additional Allowance, so paid to Running Staff,be counted for the purpose of pensionary benefits.

Affiliates are advised to circulate the above issues among cadres and also convey inpurs on each item which may be useful for discussion in the standing committee meeting of NC/JCM.

Yours fraternally,

(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)

7th Central Pay Commission: Resolving Anomalies in Disability Pension

7th Central Pay Commission: Resolving Anomalies in Disability Pension

7thCentralPayCommission-disability-pension

The concerns raised by the Armed Forces with regard to disability pension in the 7th Pay Commission are being addressed. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:-

The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post 6th CPC needs to be discontinued, and recommended a return to the slab based system.  The slab rates for disability element for 100 percent disability would be as follows:

Ranks

Levels

Rate per month (INR)

Service Officers

10  and  above

27000

Honorary Commissioned Officers
Subedar Majors / Equivalents

6  to  9

17000

Subedar / Equivalents
Naib Subedar / Equivalents
Havildar / Equivalents

5   and  below

12000

Naik / Equivalents
Sepoy / Equivalents

The above recommendation has been accepted and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly.

The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continues for civil side which has resulted in an anomalous situation.  The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.  The disability element which was being paid as on 31.12.2015 will, however continue to be paid till decision on the recommendations of Anomaly Committee is taken by the Government.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar in Rajya Sabha today.

Disability Pension for Soldiers

Disability Pension for Soldiers

The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:

The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post 6th CPC needs to be discontinued, and recommended return to the slab based system. The slab rates for disability element for 100 percent disability would be as follows:

Ranks Levels Rate per month (INR)
Service Officers 10  and  above 27000
Honorary Commissioned Officers
Subedar Majors / Equivalents 6 to 9 17000
Subedar / Equivalents
Naib Subedar / Equivalents
Havildar / Equivalents 5 and below 12000
Naik / Equivalents
Sepoy / Equivalents

The above recommendation has been accepted and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly.

The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continues for civil side which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee. The disability element which was being paid as on 31.12.2015 will, however continue to be paid till decision on the recommendations of Anomaly Committee is taken by the Government.
This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Husain Dalwai in Rajya Sabha today.

Sources Confirmed Allowance Committee Report Submitted

Sources Confirmed Allowance Committee Report Submitted

One of the NJCA leader, On Condition of Anonymity, told that the committee constituted to examine the allowance has finalized its reports and submitted it to the Government on 22nd February 2017.

On asking whether the NJCA knew the details of the committee report, he said that they were not provided with the committee report. But the committee has informed them that their demand on allowance would be considered favorably.

Hence it is expected the HRA will be retained in old rates (Sixth CPC rates) from the beginning itself and will be paid in 7th CPC Pay Scale when revised allowances come into effect. However, the news of revised allowances would be implemented with effect from 1.4.2017 is not reliable. NJCA will not accept this and clearly said that it should be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016 retrospectively.

X cities- 30%
Y cities- 20%
Z cities- 10%

7thCPC-hra-table

Transport Allowance may be split into two elements as CCA and TA as it was paid in fifth CPC. The Rates will be delinked from DA and will Fixed in slab rates.

The Government will announce its decision over the committee report after the last phase of state elections ie after 8th March 2017.

Central Government employees two greatest expectations from the Allowance Committee report…!

Central Government employees two greatest expectations from the Allowance Committee report…!

“Answers have not yet been found for the two big questions that are troubling the Central Government employees over the Allowance Committee report.”

Reports continue to pour in that the committee on allowances constituted under the chairmanship of Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa is all set to submit its revision report on the recommendations given by the Seventh Pay Commission on the allowances that are being given to the Central Government employees.

There are no confirmed reports of the exact date on which the report would be submitted. The information available now come from unconfirmed and unauthorized sources. The news media claimed that the NJCA leaders were going to meet Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa today. The federation has not yet given any confirmed information.

Nearly 50 percent of the salary increment has not yet been given to the Central Government employees. Only the Basic Pay have been revised; all the other allowances, including the HRA, continue to remain the same and are being calculated as per the 6th CPC.

The Central Government had, on 25.07.2016, published authorized Notification declaring that the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission are going to be implemented. Only the revised pay is being given from August onwards. Only the salary arrears are due from January 01.01.2016 onwards are being issued.

House Rent Allowance (HRA) is a very important allowance being given to Central Government employees. For the past 10 years, HRA for Central Government employees is being calculated on the basis of the population of the town or city where they are employed. The towns and cities are classified as X, Y, and Z, based on the population, and a HRA of 30, 20, and 10 percent respectively are given to them. The Seventh Pay Commission had reduced it to 24, 16, and eight percent.

Normally, the allowances are calculated from the day when the new Pay Commission recommendations get implemented.

Here are the answers to the two questions that keep troubling the Central Government employees:

1. What percentage of HRA has the Allowance Committee report recommended?

2. From which will the revised HRA be implemented, or, will it be given retrospective effect?

Reckoning GP 4200/- PB-2 as entry grade pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, CHELMSFORD ROAD, NEW DELHI – 110 055

Affiliated to :
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers Federation (ITF)

No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10

Dated: 07/02/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Reckoning GP 4200/- PB-2 as entry grade pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category – reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 and
22/12/2016.

(ii) Railway Board’s reply vide No. PC-V/2011/M/NFIR dated
24/01/2017
Federation does not agree with the view taken by the Railway Board by misinterpretation of the contents of DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb 1992. In this connection, Federation once again cites below the facts which have been ignored by the Board while considering the demand:

  • It is true that vide para 2 of the said OM, while the DoP&T has laid down criteria for assessing the suitability of the incumbents of the posts due to revision of pay scales/upgradation, at the same time in sub-para 2 of the same OM, it has been clarified that  where the upgradation involves replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualification but with higher eligibility of service, in such situation suitability may not be assessed.
  • It has been further clarified that those who fulfill the criteria of qualifying service, should be appointed to the upgraded post from the date on which they complete the qualifying service.
  • The condition stipulated in sub-para 2 of DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb 1992 has been fulfilled by the Pharmacists who though recruited in GP 2800 have been appointed to GP 4200 (6th CPC) on completion of 2 years service in GP 2800/- (PB-1).

The plea taken by the Railway Board that the said OM of DoP&T is applicable for assessing the suitability of the incumbents, is therefore, misconceived, illogical and unjustified. On the other hand, the case of Pharmacists for granting MACP benefit is required to be dealt applying the provisions contained in the DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb,1992.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway instructions to the Zones etc., allowing MACP endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M.Raghavaiah)

Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300-reg.

Dated: 22/12/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300-reg.

Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 24/26-08-2016 addressed to Railway Board.

Federation vide its letter of even number dated 24/26-08-2016 brought to the notice of Railway Board a case non-fixation of pay of staff working in Pay Band-1S/Rs. 4440-7440 in whose favour no orders have been passed for fixation of these staff pursuant to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC. For the purpose the Federation cited Railway Board’s notification issued under RBE No. 90/2016 where there are no instructions for these staff.

In addition to above, Federation proposed to the Board to consider the skills and service experience gained by the staff, presently in- 1S, for considering placement in Level-I (Rs. 18000/-) of the

7th CPC Pay Matrix. Federation feels sad to point out that thereafter a period of over three months has passed there is no feed back with the result the employees have been made to suffer unnecessarily. A copy of Federation’s letter dated 24/26-08-2016 is enclosed for reference.

NFIR, thereofore, requests the Railway Board once again to take further necessary action and advise to the Federation only.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Reduction in Disability Pension for Soldiers

Reduction in Disability Pension for Soldiers

The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:

The Commission is of the considered view that the regime implemented post VI CPC needs to be discontinued, and recommended a return to the slab based system. The slab rates for disability element for 100 percent disability would be as follows:

Rank Levels Rate per month (INR)
Service Officers 10 and above 27000
Honorary Commissioned Officers
Subedar  Major / Equivalents 6  to  9 17000
Subedar / Equivalents
Naib Subedar / Equivalents

The above recommendation has been accepted with the approval of the Cabinet and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly. The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continues for civil side which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.

With effect from 01.01.2006, the disability element is paid based on 30% of last emoluments drawn for 100% disability which is reduced pro-rata for lower percentages of disability.

The war injury element is paid at 60% and 100% of last drawn emoluments for 100% disability for discharged and invalided out pensioners respectively, which is reduced pro-rata for lower percentages of disability. The service element / service pension is paid in addition to Disability / War injury element.

MEMORANDUM ON THE GRIEVANCES OF CASUAL LABOURERS WORKING IN THE DEPARTMENT OF POSTS

MEMORANDUM ON THE GRIEVANCES OF CASUAL LABOURERS WORKING IN THE DEPARTMENT OF POSTS

NFPE
ALL INDIA POSTAL CASUAL, PART-TIME CONTINGENT
AND CONTRACT WORKERS FEDERATION
2151/1, New Patel Road, Shadipur, Dada Ghosh Bhavan, New Delhi-110 008.

To,
All Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries, NFPE
All CHQ office bearers of NFPE & affiliated Unions/Associations

Respected Sir,

This representation is submitted with the most fervent hope that your goodself will be kind enough to intervene on our behalf and favourable action will be taken to redress our grievances.

About 36000 employees, called as Casual labour, Part-time Casual labour, Part-time Contingent employee, daily rated mazdoors, substitutes etc. are working in the Department of Posts. Majority of us are part-time contingent employees. Govt. of India, Department of Posts had clarified that all the above mentioned categories, though called by different names, belong to the common category called casual labourers and they may be called as “full time casual labourer” and “Part-time casual labourers”. Later on as per the Supreme Court verdict Temporary status of Group-D was conferred on full-time casual labourers subject to fulfilment of certain conditions. Thus as on date there are three categories of casual labourers working in the Postal Department. They are (a) Temporary status Casal Labourer (b) Full time Casual
Labourer and (c) Part-time Casual Labourers. We, the undersigned, belong to the above three categories. The following are our genuine grievances.

1. REGULARISATION OF SERVICES AS REGULAR EMPLOYEES OF DEPARTMENT OF POSTS AND GRANT OF ALL  BENEFITS INCLUDING PENSION:

Eventhough, most of us are working as Casual Labourers for years together, Department of Posts has not worked out any scheme for our regularisation. The Temporary status Rules framed as per the Supreme Court orders is not in force now. Hence we are compelled to continue as Casual Labourers and there is no hope for regularisation. We request that action may be taken for working out a scheme for regularisation of all existing Temporary status, Full time and Part time Casual labourers as a one time measure.

2. REVISION OF WAGES WITH EFFECT FROM 01-01-2006 AND 01-01-2016 AND PAYMENT OF ARREARS OF WAGES:

(a) Eventhough the Postal Board has issued orders in January 2015 for payment of revised wages from 01-01-2006 at minimum of the 6th CPC rates, and also clarified all the queries raised by the lower units regarding eligibility of officials for fixation of revised wages from 01-01-2006, we are sorry to state that in many of the Postal Circles (states) and Divisions the orders are yet to be implemented. We have brought it to the notice of the Postal Directorate and concerned Chief Postmaster Generals, several times. But no improvement has taken place and we have been denied our legitimate right for revised wages and arrears from 01-01-2006. We pray your goodself to take immediate action for implementation of Postal Directorate orders in all Circles and Divisions and arrears may be paid at an early date.

(b) Now that, Government has already issued orders revising the pay and allowances of regular employees from 01-01-2016, consequent on implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission recommendations, our wages are also to be revised from 01-01-2016. After implementation of 6th CPC our wages was revised after 9 (nine) years in 2015. At least this time such a situation may be avoided and action may be taken to revise our wages from 01-01-2016, consequent on implementation of 7th CPC Report.

3. PAYMENT OF REVISED WAGES TO DAILY-RATED MAZDOORS:

Eventhough Department of Posts has issued orders on 17-06-2016 clarifying that those engaged on daily basis (Daily Rated Mazdoors) are also casual labourers, the lower authorities are denying wage revision and payment of arrears to Daily Rated Mazdoors on the plea that they are not casual labourers. We request you to issue strict directions to all authorities to grant revised wages and arrears to Daily Rated Mazdoors also at par with other casual labourers.

4. PREFERENCE TO CASUAL LABOURERS IN SELECTION AND APPOINTMENT TO THE VACANT POSTS OF GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS (GDS) OF POSTAL DEPARTMENT:

Department of Posts has issued clear orders to give first preference to Casual labourers while selecting candidates for filling up of vacant posts of Gramin Dak Sevaks. Orders were also issued to notify the Gramin Dak Sevak’s vacant posts among casual labourers and willingness is to be obtained. If only eligible casual labourers are not available, then the posts are to be notified for open quota recruitment. Inspite of these unambiguous orders of the Directorate, the orders are not being implemented in Postal Circles. All GDS vacancies are being notified for open quota recruitment, without offering it first to casual labourers. We request you to issue strict instructions to all units to offer the GDS vacancies to casual labourers first as per Directorate orders.

Further the condition that only those working as casual labourer prior to 1993 be considered against GDS vacancies and insisting minimum qualification of matriculation may be relaxed in the case of existing casual labourers.

5. GRANT OF PAID WEEKLY OFF AND HOLIDAYS:

At present the authorities are not granting paid weekly off to casual labourers in most of the offices. Action may be taken for grant of paid weekly off and paid holidays to all full time and part-time casual labourers.

6. CONVERSION OF PART-TIME CASUAL LABOURERS AS GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS:

It is requested that all the Part time casual labourers may be absorbed as Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Department of Post as a one-time measure, by creating the required number of GDS posts on supernumerary basis as a one time measure.

7. ABSORPTION OF ALL TEMPORARY STATUS CASUAL LABOURERS AND FULL TIME CASUAL LABOURERS AS MULTI-TASKING STAFF (MTS):

It is requested that all Temporary status Casual Labourers and Full-time Casual labourers may be absorbed against Multi-Tasking Staff (MTS) posts in the Department of Posts by creating supernumerary posts, without disturbing the existing allotment of 75% MTS vacancies reserved for Gramin Dak Sevaks.

8. APPOINTMENT ORDERS TO BE ISSUED TO THOSE WORKING CONTINUOUSLY:

At present, the authorities are not issuing appointment orders to casual labourers and they are compelled to work without any record to prove their service. It is requested that appointment orders may be issued to those casual labourers who are working continuously.
