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.

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

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)
General Secretary

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
Havildar / Equivalents 5 and below 12000
Naik / Equivalents
Sepoy / 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.

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

Disability Pension of Soldiers

BALKA SUMAN
R. VANAROJA
PREM SINGH CHANDUMAJRA
SRINIVAS KESINENI

Will the Minister of
DEFENCE be pleased to state:-

(a) whether the Government has decreased / reviewed the disability pay / pension of soldiers and war veterans;

(b) if so, the details thereof along with the disability pay-scale for soldiers during the Sixth Central Pay Commission and under the Seventh Central Pay Commission;

(c) whether the Government proposes to abolish percentage based disability pension regime and restore the earlier slab based system and if so, the details thereof;

(d) whether there is no separate category for disability pension due to war injury and if so, the details thereof; and

(e) whether there has been anomalies in determining the disability pension for defence personnel under the Seventh Central Pay Commission and if so, the details thereof and corrective measures taken in this regard?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE (DR. SUBHASH BHAMRE) IN THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE

(a) to (e): Disability element of disability pension is payable for disability in other than war or war like situation whereas war injury element is payable for disability in war or war like situation. 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.

7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) has recommended slab system for disability element for Defence Forces Personnel. However, for civil side, the 6th CPC dispensation of calculation of disability element on percentage basis continues which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.

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.

New Delhi – 110001

Subject : Extension of wage revision benefits arising from 7th CPC recommendation to employees of autonomous bodies set up by GOI- Reg.
Dear Sir,
The autonomous bodies set up by GOI normally follow the central pattern of Pay Scales and service conditions. The Ministry of Finance is to issue the requisite coders as and when pay commission recommendations are accepted and implemented in so far as Central Government Employees are concerned to extend the said benefit to employees of autonomous bodies. To give effect to 6th CPC recommendations, orders were issued on 30.09.2008. So far no order has been issued by the Govt extending the 7th CPC benefit to employees of autonomous bodies. We request that the same may please be expedited.
In respect of employees who are on permanent deputation to such autonomous bodies, the Revised Pay Rules, 2016 notified as GSR 721 (E) dated 25.07.2016 is applicable. However. it has been represented to us that some of the autonomous Bodies have not extended the benefit to the employees on deputation, probably due to an incorrect understanding of the issue.
We request that the autonomous bodies may be advised to implement the notification in the ease of employees/officers on deputation to autonomous organization without waiting for a formal order from the Ministry of Finance.
Thanking You,
Yours Faithfully

Government notifies new disability pensions rule for armed forces

Government notifies new disability pensions rule for armed forces

New Delhi: The government has notified a new set of rules for disability pensions for the armed forces, a move that came in for criticism from the opposition parties and the security establishment.

The new rules replaces the decade-old system governed by the Sixth Central Pay Commission (6th CPC) instituted in 2006 under which disability pensions arising from battle injuries, or disabilities attributable to/aggravated by military service, were calculated on a percentage basis, related to the last pay drawn.

However, under the new scheme, disability pensions will be calculated according to a slab system that existed earlier.

What the military personnel are upset about is that civilians will continue to be paid pensions according to the earlier percentage system, which means that a civilian employee will have higher disability pension than his military counterpart.
This is very wrong. Our soldiers deserve better. I urge centre to increase disability pension n not decrease it, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also attacked the Modi government for what it termed as downgrading the armed forces.
On one hand, the government carries out a surgical strike and on the other it reduces the disability pension, thereby downgrading their morale. Why have you thrown into dustbin the recommendations of the three service chiefs, Surjewala said.

Sources said that until the September 30 notification, officers and soldiers who had suffered 100 per cent disability in battle were entitled disability pension that matched their last pay drawn.

In addition, they would draw a service component of pension, which amounted to 50 per cent of their last pay drawn.

Under the new rules, which come into effect retrospectively from January 1, 2016, the service component remains unchanged, but a slab system has been introduced for disability pension, which is lower than the percentage system  Rs 27,000 a month for officers, 17,000 for junior commissioned officers (JCOs), and Rs 12,000 for all other ranks (ORs).

Senior officers from the services also expressed their disappointment with the new pension rules.

7th CPC DA calculation should give same benefit of Sixth CPC

7th CPC DA calculation should give same benefit of Sixth CPC

An interesting point is raised by Mr. Alpesh on 7th CPC DA calculation as it is not giving the DA benefit we supposed to get from sixth CPC

A Comparison of current DA vs 7th Pay Commission DA

As per this current DA calculator

6th pay DA would be 7% and

7th pay DA is 2% from July onwards.

Now if we see this figures logically there is great disappointment. We actually can’t get 7th pay DA hike at least same as currently available system of 6th pay DA hike.

7th pay commission has raised basic pay with Multiplication factor 2.57.

Then logically DA revision pattern would also be such as which at least should maintain equivalency of 2.57 factor.

For example…

If one’s Basic pay in 6th CPC is Rs. 20000, So with fitment factor of 2.57 his Basic Pay in 7th pay will be 51400.

So as per DA calculator, 7% DA rise on 6th CPC Basic Pay will be Rs.1400.

2% DA rise on 7th CPC Basic Pay will be 1028.

So current applicable DA system is clearly failing to maintain the parity between 6th pay and 7th pay consideration.

In order to achieve this balance either DA Calculation system or 7th pay fitment factor should be amended.

Suppose if we think fitment factor should be amended to maintain the parity in DA Rates between Sixth and 7th CPC, then the should be such basic to be fixed so as give its 2% value as Rs. 1400.

Thus, the 7th CPC Basic Pay to be revised as Rs. 70000 instead of Rs. 51400.

And to arrive 70000 as basic Pay, the fitment factor should be revised to 3.5…!!!

If this issue is not considered timely then employee will suffer for upcoming 10 years.

Release of additional instalment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to Pensioners due from 1.1.2016

DA-DR-Central-Government-Employees-Pensioners

Press Information Bureau
Government of India

23-March, 2016

The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved release of an additional instalment of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to Pensioners w.e.f. 01.01.2016. This represents an increase of 6 percent over the existing rate of 119 percent of the Basic Pay/Pension, to compensate for price rise.

This will benefit about 50 lakh Government employees and 58 lakh pensioners.

The increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC). The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief would be of Rs. 6796.50 crore per annum and Rs.7929.24 crore respectively, in the financial year 2016-17 (for a period of 14 months from January, 2016 to February, 2017).

What are the 7th CPC’s Recommendations Regarding Dearness Allowance? 7th CPC DA Calculation

What are the 7th CPC’s Recommendations Regarding Dearness Allowance? 7th CPC DA Calculation

Dearness Allowance is one of the important issues that the Pay Commission deals with.

The calculation method that was recommended by the 6th Pay Commission was radically different from the ones suggested by all the previous Pay Commissions.

Dearness Allowance, which was increasing by 1 or 2% until the 5th Pay Commission suddenly shot up to double-digit numbers. Until the 5th CPC, the All India Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers 1982 = 100 was used for calculating dearness allowance. From the 6th Pay Commission onwards, CPI (IW) 2001 = 100 was used for calculating the DA.

There was another crucial change that the 6th CPC made. it recommended that the Reference Base Index be changed from 306.33. As a result, 115.76 became the new Reference Base Index from 01.01.2006 onwards.

The report says…

The Commission assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay.

The Dearness Allowance (DA) is paid to Central Government employees to adjust the cost of living and to protect their Basic Pay from erosion in the real value on account of inflation. Presently, DA is based on the All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers).

The JCM-Staff Side has suggested that the existing formula for the calculation of DA may continue.

 

Analysis and Recommendations

 
The VI CPC had recommended that the National Statistical Commission may be asked to explore the possibility of a specific survey covering government employees exclusively, so as to construct a consumption basked representative of government employees and formulate a separate index. This has, however, not been done.

Keeping in mind that the present formulation of DA has worked well over the years, and there are no demands for its alteration, the Commission recommends continuance of the existing formula and methodology for calculating the Dearness Allowance.

The prices of all items have been sourced from Labor Bureau, Shimla. These prices are used in the calculation of the CPI (IW) and subsequently the calculation of Dearness Allowance. In the current exercise the prices of all items are for the period July 2014-June 2015 and have been used in the calculation of DA at 119 percent operative from 01.07.2015.

7th Pay Commission is unlikely to destabilise prices: Survey

7th Pay Commission is unlikely to destabilise prices: Survey

The hike in wages under the 7th Pay Commission is unlikely to destabilise prices and will have little impact on inflation, the Economic Survey said today.

7TH-COMMISSION-SURVEY-7CPC

“For most of the current fiscal year, inflation has remained quiescent, hovering within the RBI’s target range of 4-6 per cent. But looming on the horizon is the increase in wages and benefits recommended for government workers by the Seventh Pay Commission (7th PC).

“If the government accepts this recommendation, would it destabilise prices and inflation expectations? Most likely, it will not,” the survey, tabled in Parliament, said.

Citing example of implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission, the pre-Budget document said the Commission award barely registered on inflation despite the lumpiness of the award, owing to the grant of arrears.

“If the 6th Pay Commission award barely registered, the 7th Pay Commission is unlikely to either, given the relative magnitudes, even if fully implemented,” it said.

The Survey noted expected wage bill (including railways) will go up by around 52 per cent under the 7th Pay Commission vis-a-vis 70 per cent under the 6th pay commission.

Elaborating further on impact of implementation of pay commission on inflation, the Survey said in principle, inflation reflects the degree to which aggregate demand exceeds aggregate supply and pay awards determine only one small part of aggregate demand.

“Since the government remains committed to reducing the fiscal deficit, the pressure on prices will diminish, notwithstanding the wage increase,” it added.

Besides, pre-Budget Survey said theory does suggest that a sharp increase in public sector wages could affect inflation if it spilt over into private sector wages and hence private sector demand.

“But currently this channel is muted, since there is considerable slack in the private sector labour market, as evident in the softness of rural wages,” it said.

The 7th Pay Commission has recommended a 23.55 per cent hike in salary, allowances and pension, involving an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore, to central government employees and pensioners.

The Pay Commission recommendations, when implemented, would have bearing on remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners. Subject to acceptance by the government, the recommendations will take effect from January 1, 2016.
