Revision of the 6th CPC Pay Scale of Rs. 4440-7440 (-1S)

JCM requests to Ministry of Finance that kindly consider the issue of pay revision of non-matric employees appointed on compassionate ground in 6th CPC pay scale -1S(4440-7440) w.e.f. 1/1/2016 on the basis of 7th CPC.

Sub: Revision of the 6th CPC Pay Scale of Rs. 4440-7440 (-1S)

Dear Sir,

Alter the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations the minimum entry qualification for Central Government job is kept as Matriculation or ITI. However candidates who are not Matric/ITI qualified are recruited in the -1S pay scale of Rs. 4440-7440 and kept in the same pay scale till they acquire the Matriculation qualification. However the pay scale is not yet revised even after the implementation of the 7th CPC pay scales w.e.f. 1/1/2016.  This is causing undue financial hardship to the concerned employees.  It is therefore requested that you may kindly consider the above issue and necessary instructions may please be issued revising the above pay scale w.e.f. 1/1/2016 on the basis of 7th CPC

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

7thCPC-Child-Care-Leave-CCL

No.NC/JCM/2017

Dated: August 4, 2017

The Secretary(DoP&T),
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)
North Block, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

It may please be recalled that, the 6th CPC, accepting the consistent demand of the Staff Side for grant of Child Care Leave to Women Central Government Employees, had recommended maximum two years CCL for women government employees for taking care of maximum two children, as a welfare measure the women government employee for taking care of maximum two children as a welfare measure. Women government employees were availing this specific leave for taking care of their children with 100% salary for a maximum period of two years, owing to certain difficulties having being experienced by the employer, certain conditions were subsequently laid down to avail CCL by women government employees.

One of the subsequently introduced conditions was that, they can avail their leave in maximum 3 spell during in a calendar year. While 7th CPC has duly acknowledged the requirement of CCL for women government employees as well as single male employees and recommended that the practice should continue as hitherto, additionally entitling single male employee to avail the same, but unfortunately, imposed another new condition that, although for the first 365 CCL 100% salary would be payable. However, for subsequent 365 days only 80% of their salary to be paid.

It may be appreciated that, provision of CCL to women government employees with the sole motto of taking care of their children, particularly at the time the children are in grave need of the same, a welfare measure at the same was being granted with 100% salary before the report of the 7th CPC came in the effect.

Therefore, imposition of the condition of 80% salary payable in the 2nd spell of 365 days is grossly unjustified and uncalled for and would result in withdrawal of a well acknowledged welfare measure.

It is, therefore, requested that the issue may be looked into in the light of the foregoing the earlier practice of payment of 100% salary of the entire 2 years may please be restored as a noble employer.

Comradely yours

7th CPC: Fixation of Pension

7th CPC: Fixation of Pension

7thCPC-Fixation-Pension

In implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendation of the Seventh Central Pay Commission (7th CPC), orders have been issued vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/16-P&PW(A) (i) dated 04.08.2016 for revision of provisions regulating pension/gratuity/ commutation of pension/family pension/disability pension/ex-gratia lump-sum compensation, etc. in respect of the employees retiring on or after 01.01.2016.v For revision of pension of pre-2016 civil pensioners, the 7th CPC recommended the following two formulations:

(i) Notional Pay of employees who retired prior to 01.01.2016 may be fixed in the Pay Matrix on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, by adding the number of increments he/ she had earned in that level while in service, to the minimum of the corresponding level in the matrix. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.

(ii) The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the 6th CPC recommendations, may be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.

7th CPC recommended that the pensioners may be given the option of choosing the formulation which is more beneficial to them. Orders were issued for revision of pension as per Formulation (ii) above vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/16-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 and the pension disbursing authorities were advised to make payment of revised pension accordingly without waiting for the revised pension payment authority. A Committee under the chairmanship of Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare was constituted to examine the feasibility of Formulation (i). The Committee observed that Formulation (i) as recommended by the 7th CPC might be difficult to implement in a large number of cases and this method may also cause anomalies.

In implementation of the recommendations of the aforesaid Committee, orders have been issued vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/16-P&PW(A) dated 12.05.2017. It has been provided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016. Higher of the two Formulations i.e. the pension/family pension already revised in accordance with this Department’s OM dated 04.08.2016 or the revised pension/family pension as worked out by notional pay fixation method, shall be the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

There were around 55.51 lakh pensioners/family pensioners (including defence pensioners/family pensioners) as on 31.03.2016. All Pension Sanctioning Authorities have been advised to accord top priority to the work of revision of pension and issue revised Pension Payment Authority in implementation of the above orders expeditiously.

There is no proposal for creation of any other organisation for pension related issues.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office, Dr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to question by Adv. Narendra Keshav Sawaikar and Shri P. Nagarajan in the Lok Sabha today.

Pension to IAF Veterans

Pension to IAF Veterans

Pension of pre-2006 retired Junior Commissioned Officers/ Other Ranks (JCOs / ORs) have been assessed on the basis of rank continuously held for 10 months or more. However, protection of minimum of fitment table under 6th Pay Commission for the last rank held has been provided.

A Junior Warrant Officer (JWO) who has not served for 10 months or more continuously in the rank is entitled to receive initial pension in the rank of Sergeant. However, where the revised pension as on 01.07.2014 worked out in terms of OROP order, happens to be less than the existing pension as on 01.07.2014, the pension has not been revised to the disadvantage of the pensioner.

Further, the issue whether in the case of JCOs / ORs, the pension is to be paid on the basis of the last rank held instead of last rank pensioned under OROP was referred to the Judicial Committee on OROP. The Committee has submitted its report to the Ministry which is under examination.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Dr. P. Venugopal in Lok Sabha today.

Payment of Over Time Allowance to the JEs (AC) performing running/ maintenance duties on Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains

NFIR

Dated: 24.05.2017

No. I/8/Part I

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Payment of Over Time Allowance to the JEs (AC) performing running/ maintenance duties on Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains-reg.

Ref:  General Manager (Personnel), Eastern Railway’s letter No. E.740/0/Migo (Policy) dated 04/05/2017 to Railway Board.

On Eastern Railway, the Jr. Engineers (AC) GP 4200/- (6th CPC)/Pay Level 6 (7th CPC) are deployed to man Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains along with the team of staff for ensuring safe and efficient maintenance standards. Unfortunately, these JEs are denied payment of Over Time Allowance since the last over three months, while the staff work under them on running maintenance are granted Over Time Allowance.

In the above context, the General Manager (P), Eastern Railway has addressed a letter to Railway Board vide No. E. 740/0/Misc (Policy) dated 04/05/2017 seeking Railway Board’s approval for allowing payment of OTA to the Electrical JEs escorting the Rajdhani/Shatabdi Express Trains and discharging duties.

The Federation wants the Railway Board to appreciate that the role of Electrical JEs on Rajdhani/Shatabdi trains are not to be compared with other Supervisors so far as nature of duties are concerned as these JEs while discharging their duties of leading the team on Rajdhani/Shatabdi Trains, are always engaged and confined to their work under severe stress and tension to ensure safety, punctuality and efficient running and maintenance on the entire train formation to the comfort of passengers, thus they are not free to adjust their duties while on board, unlike those Supervisors who perform stationary duties. The CEE, Eastern Railway has also confirmed this view as mentioned in Eastern Railway’s letter dated 04th May 2017.

NFIR further states that the Board’s letter No. E(LL)70/HER/16 dated 04th January 1972 classifying Electrical Chargemen in scale Rs. 250-380 (AS) or above as Supervisor under HOER is not relevant to the category of Electrical JEs who perform duties on running trains i.e. Rajdhani and Shatabdi and whose duties are totally different to that of those Supervisors of GP 4200/Level 6 (7th CPC) performing duties in the Sheds/Depots.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to accord approval for payment of OT Allowance to Electrical JEs escorting Rajdhani/Shatabdi Express Trains for ensuring running maintenance and accordingly issue instructions to the General Manager, Eastern Railway etc., to ensure payment of Over Time Allowance.

DA/As above

No. E.740/0/AAisc (Policy)

Kolkata,
Dated :04.05.2017

Director Estt.(LL)
Ministry of Railways (Railway Board) Govt. of India
New Delhi.

Sub: Grant of Overtime Allowance to Supervisors.

A doubt has been arisen regarding the entitlement of Overtime Allowance (OTA) tothe category of Junior Engineers in GP Rs. 4200 (Level-6) working under Electrical Department deployed in Rajdhani/Shatabdi Exp. along with maintenance &. AC staff. The matter has been considered in consultation with Electrical Department of this Railway (CEE/ER), keeping in view the extant guidelines mentioned as under:

1.In terms of extant provisions laid down in RS (Hours of work and period of rest) Rules, 2005, Railway servants classified as “Supervisors” and “Excluded” under Hours of Employment Regulations are holding a position of responsibility and are employed mainly in a supervisory character and comparatively free to adjust their hours of duty & work during such hours and are thus not entitled to overtime allowance.

2.As per Board’s letter no. E(LL)70/HER/16 dated 04/01/1972, the category of Electrical Chargeman in Rs. 250-380 (AS) or above, in-charge of electrical examination and maintenance units has been classified as ‘Supervisor’ under HOER.

3.However, the CEE/ER is of view that nature of the duty of an Electrical JEs, as escorting Supervisors, is in no way comparable to those who are working as such on stationary duties because while discharging the duties of leading the team in a train like Rajdhani/Shatabdi Exp, they are always engaged and confined with their work under severe stress and tension to run train maintaining safety, punctuality and requisite passengers’ comfort and thus, not free to adjust their duty hours while on board. Hence they should be entitled to “Single (BARE) Rate Overtime”.

4.As the issue involves pan Indian Railways implications, Board is requested to examine the entitlement to OTA to Electrical JEs deployed in Rajdhani/Shatabdi Exp. to be calculated’ as per Para 2(c) of RBE No. 29/2010 in its true perspective and communicate the decision in this regard.

This issues with the approval of CPO (Admn.) and Accounts and in consultation with associated Accounts.

7th Pay Commission Allowances : Waiting for announcement

7th Pay Commission Allowances : Waiting for announcement

About 47 lakh Central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners have been waiting for 7th Pay Commission Allowances since July last year, but still there is no conclusion on 7th Pay commission allowances for Central Government Employees.

All the employees are eagerly waiting for the announcement from the Finance Ministry on allowances part. Due to delay in announcement all the employees getting huge loss in the monthly take home salary. 7th Pay commission implemented from Jan 2016, but still employees are getting 6th CPC allowances only.

NCJCM Secretary met Cabinet Secretary on 28th March 2017 and expressed the anguish situation among central government employees due to delay in the 7th Pay Commission Allowance. But Cabinet Secretary mentioned that MCD election may result in some delay, so all are expected the announcement after MCD election on April 23rd. but still there is no announcement.

On April 28th, a high-level committee headed by finance secretary Ashok Lavasa submitted its report on allowances to 47 lakh central government employees to finance minister Arun Jaitley. The Ashok Lavasa committee was constituted in June last year after the government implemented the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.

After submitting the report to Jaitley, Lavasa said the committee has taken into account representations made by various stakeholders. The report will now be examined by the empowered committee of secretaries and following that it will be placed before the Cabinet, he said.

Lavasa said the government will take the final call on the date of payout of revised allowances to government employees.

All the employees expecting announcement for 7th CPC Allowances & arrears for allowances. Hope all these topics will get some conclusion soon.

Clarifications and update on the Cabinet decisions on pay and pensionary issues emanating out of the 7th Central Pay Commission: By Maj Navdeep Singh

Clarifications and update on the Cabinet decisions on pay and pensionary issues emanating out of the 7th Central Pay Commission: By Maj Navdeep Singh

There is a press note floating around on social media regarding certain decisions taken by the Cabinet related to pay and pensionary modalities related to the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Though many have questioned its veracity, this is to confirm that it is absolutely a valid document and has been officially issued by the Ministry of Finance.

That said, let me run through some of the important decisions taken by the Cabinet, clarifications thereon and their impact. Please note that the new Pay Rules issued by the Ministry of Defence do not take into account the changes in the pay structure or removal of anomalies and these shall be incorporated through separate amendments in the rules issued on 03 May 2017.

Restoration of Percentage based Disability Pension Rates

The 7th CPC had recommended ‘flat/slab’ rates of disability pension for the defence services rather than the ones based upon ‘percentage of pay’. Civil disabled personnel were however retained on the percentage system as before. As stated earlier, frankly, I never expected this regressive 7th CPC recommendation to be accepted by the Government, but unfortunately it was. While recommending this aspect, the 7th CPC had also made unfounded and uncharitable remarks against disabled soldiers by casting aspersions on those who have incurred disabilities while in service which was discussed in detail by me earlier in my opeds, here and here. This resulted in a massive decrease after the 7th CPC resulting in a payout even lower than 6th CPC rates for almost all post-2016 retirees of all ranks and also for pre-2016 retirees of certain ranks. The arbitrariness of this decision becomes evident from the following chart at the apex levels:

(100% Disability)
Rank
Rates under the
6th CPC as on
31 Dec 2015
Rates applicable
after the 7th CPC
as on 01 Jan 2016
Lt Gen Rs 52,560 Rs 27,000
Head of Central Armed Police Force Rs 52,560 Rs 67,500

Thankfully, the then Defence Minister, Mr Manohar Parrikar, fully understood the issue and took personal interest in getting the issue referred to an Anomaly Committee. The Defence Services HQ as well as the Ministry, and even civilian employee organisations, supported the resolution of this anomaly which now stands addressed and the Cabinet has decided to retain the old system of calculation on percentage basis, that is, 30% of pay shall remain the disability element for 100% disability. I however do hope that a protection clause is introduced for pre-2016 retirees of lower ranks who stood to gain from the slab rates.

Improvement in Pension calculation system for pre-2016 civil and defence retirees

The Cabinet has also accepted an improvement over and above the system of pension calculation which was finally effectuated after the 7th CPC. Rather than basing the pensionary calculations on the “Old Pension X 2.57″ formula, an option would be provided to calculate the pension based upon the notional pay stage from which the employee had retired as opposed to the minimum of pay as was the system followed till the 6th CPC. Calculation of pension in this manner would definitely enhance the pension of civil pensioners and perhaps a small number of defence pensioners, who, in all probability would be provided the opportunity of choosing the most beneficial option, that is, the new formula, 2.57 multiplication formula or OROP rates. Contrary to popular perception, this does not exactly result in OROP for pre-2016 civil employees as is being projected, since while this is based on notional data, the military OROP is operated on live date of fresh retirees, moreover while this system is expected to be revised only after ten years, the military OROP as per the current scheme is meant to be revised after every five years.

Issuance of Pay Rules rather than Instructions on Pay

There were messages that the Chiefs of the Defence Services have been sidelined and downgraded since the earlier system of issuance of Special Army Instructions, Special Navy Instructions and Special Air Force Instructions (SAI/SNI/SAFI) has been discontinued and a new dispensation of ‘Pay Rules’ has been initiated. This seems to be the negative imagination of fertile minds. SAI/SNI/SAFI were never issued under the authority of the Chiefs of the Defence Services HQ but were always issued by the Ministry of Defence, that is, the Government of India. ‘Orders’ such as Army Orders (AO) etc were (and are) issued by the Defence Services HQ under the power of the Chiefs. The new Pay Rules have been promulgated under the authority of Article 309 of the Constitution of India and are statutory in character rather than being mere executive instructions like was the case till now. With this, the pay rules of the Defence Services are at par with the statutory pay rules of the civil services which are also issued under the authority of Article 309 of the Constitution of India.

Defence Pay Matrix to have 40 stages

The 7th CPC had recommended only 24 stages in the defence matrix while 40 stages were provided to civilians. This anomaly has been rectified and now the defence pay matrix shall also have 40 stages. This will particularly be helpful for JCOs towards the retiring years and will also beneficially affect their pension and other retiral benefits.

Multiplication factor of 2.67

This anomaly had been rectified earlier for Brigadiers and a multiplication factor of 2.67 had been applied for the said rank. Now the same benefit has also been extended to Lieutenant Colonels, Directors to Government of India and Colonels, that is, Levels 12A and 13 of the Pay Matrix.

Other Anomalies

There shall be pay protection for the amount of Military Service Pay (MSP) on promotion from the rank of Brigadier to Major General. It may be recalled that MSP is not entitled to ranks above the rank of Brigadier. No decision has been taken by the Government on the aspect of Non Functional Upgradation till now since the matter is being considered sub judice. On directions of the Supreme Court, the Government is re-considering the issue of NFU for Central Armed Police Forces for which a meeting was recently held. The issue is to be considered by the Government and the fresh decision is to be placed before the Supreme Court in August 2017. The most pertinent anomaly of enhancement of Military Service Pay, especially for JCOs, also remains pending along with other matters and probably these issues would be clearer after various anomaly committees submit their reports and a decision is taken thereafter by the Cabinet. The committee on allowances has already submitted its report which will now be examined by the Government. Unlike pay and pension which are admissible retrospectively from 01 January 2016, most freshly rationalized allowances shall only be admissible prospectively.

This is all I have to say at present, please DO NOT mail me individual queries on email or social media. You are free to discuss the above @ the comments section of this post.

Thank You.

Fixation of pay in case of employees who seek transfer to a lower post under FR 15(a)

Fixation of pay in case of employees who seek transfer to a lower post under FR 15(a)

Dated: 01/05/2017

No. I/2/Part IV

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Fixation of pay in case of employees who seek transfer to a lower post under FR 15(a) – clarification regarding.

Ref: DoP&T’s OM No. 12/1/2016-Estt (Pay I) dated 31st March, 2017.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to DoP&T’s OM dated 31st March, 2017 (quoted under reference) on the subject pertaining to fixation of pay in the case of employees who seek transfer to a lower post under FR 15(a), copy enclosed.

According to the DoP&T OM dated 21st October 2009, 05th November 2012 & 31st March 2017, the method of pay fixation in respect of Government employee transferred to a lower post on his/her request shall be as under:-

“The pay of the Government employee holding a post on regular basis will be fixed in the revised pay structure at the stage equal to the pay drawn by him/her in the higher level of post held regularly. If no such stage is available, the pay will be fixed at the stage next below in the lower level with respect to the pay drawn by him/her in the higher level of posts held regularly and the difference in the pay may be granted as personal pay to be absorbed in future increments.”

From the OMs issued by the DoP&T pursuant to the implementation of the 6th CPC pay structure as well 7th CPC pay matrices w.e.f. 01/01/2006 and 01/01/2016 respectively, the pay fixation on joining lower post shall be with reference to pay drawn in higher level of post.

On Zonal Railways etc., pay fixation to those who joined in lower Grade Pay/Pay Matrix at their request is not being allowed inspite of DoP&T’s OMs cited above, (i.e. ensuring pay protection),It is also noticed that Railway Board have not issued corresponding instructions on the basis of DoP&T OM dated 31st March 2017 till now.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to kindly consider the above facts and issue clarification on the lines of the OMs of DoP&T for granting pay fixation in those cases of employees who joined on transfer to a lower post at their request.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,

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,

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)

General Secretary.
