4.  This delegation is also subject to the over-riding, condition that these orders are liable to be withdrawn/modified at any time during this period, if it is considered necessary by the Board to do so.

Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff

Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff-reg.

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

Dated: 11/01/2018

The Member Staff,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. 2016/F(E)III/1(1)/7 dated 11/07/2017.

Railway Board’s attention is invited to the instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 11/07/2017 (RBE No. 66/2017) vide which DoP&PW’s orders together with Concordance tables for revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners have been circulated. The Concordance Tables circulated by the Board, unfortunately do not cover the pension revision of former Running Staff as no separate tables in favour of them staff have been circulated so far. Reports received by the Federation (NFIR) reveal that the Pension/Family Pension of pre-2016 Running Staff is not being revised by the Zonal Railways due to non-provision of separate Concordance Tables by the Railway Board.

In this connection, NFIR desires to clarify that in case of former Running Staff Pension/Family Pension is required to be calculated taking into account the Basic Pay + 55% add on pay element. A sample calculation sheet of the Pension in the case of pre-2016 Running Staff is enclosed as Annexure to this letter for appreciation and quick action.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to communicate the Concordance Tables to the Zonal Railways for revision of Pension/Family Pension of former Running Staff. It is also urged that the Concordance Tables be finalized on the basis of specimen (vide Annexure to this letter) and instructions issued to the GMs of Zonal Railways.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,

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


Annexure to NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B.-Part II

Running Staff retired on 31/12/2005.      

Basic Pay = Rs. 9525
On 01/01/2006 = Rs. 9525 x 30% = Rs. 2858
Pay on 31/12/2015 = Rs. 9525 + 2858 = 12383 x 2.26     = Rs. 27985
Notional Pay on 31/12/2015 = 27985 + GP 4200/-
Pay on 01/01/2016 = Rs. 27985 x 30% = 8396
Rs. 27985 + 8396 = 36,381 + GP 4200 = 40,581
Rs. 40,581 x 2.57 = 1,04,294/-
Pay element (55%) = Rs. 1,04,294 x 55% = Rs. 57,362
Settlement pay = Rs. 1,04,294 + 57,362 = 1,61,656
Monthly Pension = Rs. 1,61,656 ÷ 2 = 80,828

(d) Annual increment will be calculated by transiting one stage vertically down in the same Level.

(e) MACP shall continue to be granted without any changes.

(f) Separate Pay Matrix for Defence Personnel and Military Nursing Services Officers.

(g) All Allces have been rationalized.

(h) Most of the Allces have been raised corresponding to the rise in Dearness Allowance (DA).

DOPT : Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee

DOPT : Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee
F.No.11/2/2016-JCA-I(Pt.)

 Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel Training

 

North Block, New Delhi
Dated the 30th October, 2017

To

Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra

Secretary, Staff-Side National Council,

JCM 13-C, Ferozshah Road,

New Delhi-110001

Subject:— Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee — Comments of DoPT regarding.

Sir,

I am directed to refer to your letters no. NC-JCM-2017/7th CPC Anomaly dated 16th August, 2017 and 31th August, 2017 with which a total of 18 items have been sent to DoPT for discussion in the NAC meetings. These 18 items are about various issues over which, the Staff-Side has opined, anomaly has arisen as a result of the 7th CPC’s recommendations or absence of them.

2. On the other hand, DoPT after examining them in the light of the three postulates which, as described in DoPT’s OM. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017, would constitute anomaly is of the view that there are certain items in the lists sent which are not in accord with them and hence cannot be called anomalies as such notwithstanding the merit that they may have otherwise. There are also certain items which should be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committees of the other administrative Ministries concerned. A few items are those which, for a detailed examination, need more relevant documents/papers etc. These have been briefly described below:

Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.      
Anomaly     in computation          of Minimum Wage
As
against the Minimum Wage decided to be Rs. 18000/- by the Govt. w.e.f.
01.01.2016, the Staff-Side has said that this should be not less than
Rs. 26,000/-and the multiplication factor ought to have been 3.714 and
not 2.57.
 They
have further asked for the pay matrix to be changed. Objecting to the
methodology adopted by the 7th CPC in computing the Minimum Wage, they
have given a number of reasons like the retail prices of the commodities
quoted by the Labour Bureau being irrational, adoption of the 12
monthly average of the retail price being contents to the Dr. Avkrovd f
ormula, the website of the Agriculture Ministry giving the retail prices
of commodities forming the basis of computation of minimum wage
provides a different picture, so on and so forth.
However,
when one compares this item with the three situations given in DoPT’s
OM. No. 11/2/2016-jCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017,
it does not appear that this satisfies any of them to be treated as an
anomaly.
2.      
3% Increment in all stages
The
Staff-Side argues that in spite of the foreword to the Report making it
clear in para 1.19 that the prevailing rate of increment is considered
quite satisfactory and has been retained, an illustrative list appended
by them shows instances where the pay, gone up after the addition of
annual increment by 3%, falls short of what it would have been. They
have quoted para-5.1.38 of the report also which states that the rate of
annual increment would be 3%.
While
what the Staff-Side has stated has its own merits, the fact of the
matter is that the principle followed here is whenever a stage of pay,
after addition of an increment, falls short of the nearest hundred by
less than 50, the employee would be entitled to get the amount mentioned
in the immediately next cell in the Pay-Matrix. However, when the gap
is that of more than 50, the pay, on addition of an increment, is
rounded off to the nearest hundred which travels backward.
For
instance, if staying at Rs. 46,100/- one gets an increment @ 3%,
instead of having his/her pay fixed at Rs. 47,483/- (which is the exact
figure), it will be Rs. 47,500/- (thus gaining by Rs. 13/-). Thus it is
not a case of permanent loss as the loss in one year is made good in the
second/third year. Considering this to he a situation of swings and
roundabouts, this may not be treated as a case of anomaly.
3.      
Anomaly due to index rationalization
The
Staff-Side has taken exception to the index rationalization followed by
the 7th CPC while formulating its views as per which the fitment factor
varies and moves upward as one goes up the hierarchical ladder with the
level of responsibility and accountability also steadily climbing up
commensurately. The Staff-Side argues that the multiplication factor
should be one, i.e. 2.81.
Although the Staff-Side has remonstrated that
the
vertical relativity will suffer distortion in the process, it has to be
stated that it is a policy decision about by the Staff-Side comes to be
distorted when the pay of a feeder-cadre post and that of a promotional
post becomes same. In this case it is not
so. Hence it does not appear to qualify for being called an anomaly.
4.      
Minimum Pension
The
Staff-Side says the minimum pension fixed after 7th CPC should be
corrected and revised orders issued. From the brief explanatory note
recorded under this point, it appears that the CPC had sounded out D/o
pension on what the latter thought what the minimum pension should be.
This
is an exclusively pension-related issue on which, as informed by the
Staff-Side, D/o Pension was asked for their views by the 7t1 CPC.
Moreover, as will be evident, the basic focus of DoPT’s Q.M. No.
11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017 is on
taking on board those anomalies which are pay-related. Hence, this item
may be taken up separately by the Staff-Side with the D/o Pension. Thus,
instead of treating this as a case of anomaly, the Staff-Side is
requested to take it up with the D/o Pension separately.
5.      
Date of effect of allowances HRA, Transport Allowance, CEA etc.
The
Staff-Side has demanded that the grant of the allowances (revised)
mentioned alongside should be made effective from 01.01.2016 and not
from 01.07.2017.
This
is a demand and cannot be treated as an anomaly. Moreover, the date
from which a benefit is to be made effective is something which can be
decided only by the Government. Hence, this may not be taken up at the
NAC.
6.      
Anomaly in the grant of D.A instalment w.e.f 01.01.2016.
Here the Staff-Side has questioned the methodology adopted by the Government in computing the DA instalment w.e.f. 01.01.2016.
It
has, however, to be pointed out that even if there is merit in the
contention of the Staff-Side involving this item, it does not qualify
being called an anomaly when it is examined in the light of the three
situations which, as per DoPT’s Q.M. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th
August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017, would constitute anomalies.
3. Items to be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committees.
Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.
Implement  the recommendation on Parity in Pay Scale between Sr.  Auditor/Sr. Accountant of IA&AD and organized Accounts with Assistant Section Officer of CSS.
The
Staff-Side says that although the 5th, 6th and now 7th CPC’s have
recommended that the pay-scales of different cadres/categories/grades
requiring the same recruitment qualifications should be the same, denial
of the same benefit to the Statistical Assistants (SA’s) who are
otherwise at par with Assistant Section Officers (erstwhile ‘Assistant’)
is a violation of the principle. While ASO’s are placed in the
Pay-Matrix of 7, SA’s are in the Pay-Matrix of 6. This arrangement is
stated to have disturbed the horizontal relativity between the
pay-scales of the SA’s in the Organized Accounts and IA&AD Cadre and
ASO’s in the CSS cadre. In conclusion, it has been requested that SA’s
should also be placed in Pay-Matrix no. 7.
Even
if, the present case comes across as one of anomaly, it appears that
the interests of the Statistical Assistants only are involved. ASO’s of
CCS are coming into the question; but only as a reference point, by way
of comparison. Hence the Staff-Side is requested to take up this issue
at the Departmental Anomaly Committee concerned.
2.
Technical Supervisors     of Railways
This
particular item is exclusively Railways-specific. The Staff-Side, NC
OCM) is requested to take it up at the Departmental Anomaly Committee of
MR) Railways.
3.
Anomaly     in       the assignment  of replacement of Levels of pay in the Ministry of Defence, Railways, Mines etc in the case of Store Keepers     .
Staff-Side
says that although ‘Store keeper’ is one such category of posts which
is common to various Departments like Defence, Mines, Railways etc and
in spite of the nature of job, responsibilities being similar, the
pay-scale of storekeepers across all the Departments is not the same. It
is still less in the M/o Defence even after the entry-level
qualifications which were different before the 7th CPC stage, have been
revised.
If
what the Staff-Side remonstrates that even after the requisite changes
had been carried out in the R/Rules, the 7th CPC did not take any
cognizance of it is true, it has to be assumed that it is a policy
decision of the Government. Moreover, the issue appears to be M/o
Defence-specific. The Staff-Side is requested to take it up at the
Departmental Anomaly Committee meeting of the M/o Defence.
         
4.       Item to be taken up separately with the Department of Pension.
Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.
Anomaly     arising from the decision to reject option-1 in pension fixation
As
per the ToR of the NAC, anomalies are basically pay-centric. Under this
point, the contention of the Staff-Side is pension-centric.
Furthermore, the Staff-Side has themselves clarified that post-7th CPC,
Government had set up a CoS headed by Secretary(Pension) to look into
the first option recommended by the 7th CPC. Eventually, this was not
found feasible to be implemented. With such a decision having been taken
at the CoS level, it cannot be called an anomaly. In view of this, we
may inform the Staff-Side to separately take it up with D/0 Pension
without treating it as an anomaly that can be taken up at the NAC.
                            
5.       More details required to examine the following item.
Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.
Parity in Pay Scales between      Assistants  /Stenographers      in field / subordinate officers and assistant Section Officer and stenographers in CSS.
Although the         heading of this item is          self-explanatory, the relevant text given in the paper sent  is
not complete as the pay-scales of Assistants and stenos posted in field
have not been mentioned therein. Until their pay-scales are known
they
cannot be compared to check whether there is indeed any anomaly. The
Staff-Side is requested to provide more information that is relevant so
that it can be properly examined to find out whether an anomaly arises
here or not.

 

 Yours faithfully,
 S/d,
(D.K. Sengupta)
Deputy Secretary to the Government of India

Pay element relating to Running Staff/Loco Inspectors after the recommendations of 7th CPC

Pay element relating to Running Staff/Loco Inspectors after the recommendations of 7th CPC

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No.E(P&A)II-2015/RS-25

New Delhi,
dated:13.11.2017

The General Manager,
Metro Railway,
Kolkata.

Sub : Pay element relating to Running Staff/Loco Inspectors after the recommendations of Seventh CPC.

Please refer to your letter no. MRTS/E.345/0/12/Pt.IV/Misc dt. 05.05.2017 requesting a clarification about the percentage of pay element to be reckoned for the purpose of computation of pensionary benefits in respect of Loco Inspectors. This issue has also been raised by GS/NFIR in his letter no. IV/RSAC/Conf/Pt. VIII dt. 15.09.2017.

2. Loco Inspectors are entitled to 30% add-on pay element for retirement benefits as per paragraph no. 5.5 of Board’s letter no. E(P&A)II/83/RS-10(iv) dt. 25.11.1992 which has not been amended as yet. It is clarified that the pay element (presently 30% until further orders) has to be reckoned in the revised pay structure of Seventh CPC for calculation of pensionary benefits of Loco Inspectors.

3. In this connection it is noted that many retired Loco Inspectors, even after getting the benefit of 30% add-on pay element at the time of pay fixation as Loco Inspectors, have gone to Courts of Law claiming 55% pay element for pensionary benefits equating themselves to the running staff. It is reiterated that Loco Inspectors are not classified as running staff and therefore are not entitled to 55% pay element for pensionary benefits. This fact may be conveyed to such Loco Inspectors while calculating their pensionary benefits.

4.This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Cabinet Decision on 7th CPC HRA – Shocking News for Central government Employees

Cabinet Decision on 7th CPC HRA Shocking News for Central government Employees

7th CPC HRA is a big upset for Central Government Employees

It is really a Shocking News for Central government Employees that 7th CPC HRA is not increased and retained the recommendation of 7th CPC on House rent Allowances with slight modifications. The date of effect of Allowances is another shock for CG Staffs.

The 7th CPC has recommended 24% , 16% and 8% for X, Y and Z cities. The Federations expressed their anguish over the Recommendation of HRA and other Allowances,Then Government Constituted a Committee to Examine the Allowances. After the Long wait, now the Government approved the same rates of House rent allowance which 7th CPC Recommended. It is really a big upset for Central government Employees. If the Government decided to approve the same rates , it should have been implemented with effect from 1st July 2016 instead of 1st July 2017. After 12 months wait the Government has decided to implement the Allowances without any Hike with effect from 1st July 2017 . It is tough decision to accept by Cg Staffs.

The Government Decision on HRA

House Rent Allowance

HRA is currently paid @ 30% for X (population of 50 lakh & above), 20% for Y (5 to 50 lakh) and 10% for Z (below 5 lakh) category of cities. 7th CPC has recommended reduction in the existing rates to 24% for X, 16% for Y and 8% for Z category of cities. As the HRA at the reduced rates may not be sufficient for employees falling in lower pay bracket, it has been decided that HRA shall not be less than ₹5400, ₹3600 and ₹1800 for X, Y and Z category of cities respectively. This floor rate has been calculated @ 30%, 20% and 10% of the minimum pay of ₹18000. This will benefit more than 7.5 lakh employees belonging to Levels 1 to 3.

7th CPC had also recommended that HRA rates will be revised upwards in two phases to 27%, 18% and 9% when DA crosses 50% and to 30%, 20% and 10% when DA crosses 100%. Keeping in view the current inflation trends, the Government has decided that these rates will be revised upwards when DA crosses 25% and 50% respectively. This will benefit all employees who do not reside in government accommodation and get HRA.

The General Secretaries of Affiliated Unions of NFIR

Brother,

Sub: Important subjects discussed with Railway Board (AM/Staff) this date (20th June 2017)-reg.

MACPS ‘Very Good’ Benchmarking should be scrapped:

After discussion, it was agreed to send a cogent communication about the Railway employees’ working system for exempting Railways from the revised ‘Very Good’ benchmarking. In this context, NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/DoP&T dated 23/08/2016 addressed to Cabinet Secretary and letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 09/01/2017 addressed to Railway Board may be connected.

7th CPC Pay Matrices and Option for Pay Fixation for those who were granted increment on 1st July or those promoted in between 01/01/2016 and the date of notification:

The Railway Board have clarified that instructions already exist for granting option. NFIR, however, pointed out that on several Zones, the Option opportunity has been denied as the Zonal Railways as well as Divisions have not understood the provisions contained in Board’s instructions and demanded that illustrations be issued by the Railway Board through clarificatory instructions.

After discussion it was agreed to.

Yours fraternally

7th Pay Commission: Revised Allowances Likely From July, Says Report

7th Pay Commission: Revised Allowances Likely From July, Says Report

7th Pay Commission

The Lavasa committee has suggested some modifications to 7th pay commissions recommendations on some allowances.
Central government employees are likely to get revised allowances (including HRA) from next month, reported. Revised 7th pay commission related allowances are expected to give a further boost to consumer spending and thus the broader economy, analysts say. The report, citing sources, said that the Cabinet could take up the proposal of 7th pay commission allowances later this month. The Ashok Lavasa committee, which examined the 7th pay commission’s recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister on April 27. An Empowered Committee of Secretaries was set up screen the report and firm up proposals for the Cabinet.

The Lavasa committee suggested some modifications in some allowances that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance ministry said in a statement.

The government had last year accepted the recommendation of Justice AK Mathur-headed Seventh Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension. The 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations relating to allowances were referred to the Ashok Lavasa committee.
The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent when DA or dearness allowance crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when it crosses 100 per cent. With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

The Cabinet had earlier approved modification in recommendations of the 7th pay commission relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners and family pensioners based on recommendations of a high-level panel. The decision will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners.

New Delhi-110055

Sir,

Sub:-Pay fixation to Running Staff while granting financial upgradation in the identical Grade Pay (VI CPC) under MACPS – Reckoning Special Running Staff Allowance for pay fixation-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR s letter No. IV/MACPS/Part 10, dt. 16.05.2017 on the above subject and to state that tile instructions for fixation of pay at the time of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS are contained in Para-4 of the Annexure to Board’s letter dt. 10.06.09 (RBE NoA 01/2009) which stipulates as under:-

“Benefit of pay fixation available at the time Df regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgraiation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade pay as granted under MACPS”.

In view of the above, nodal Branches for 6th  & 7th CPC viz. PC-VI and PC-VII, have been consulted. They have advised that the Additional Allowance/Special Running Staff Allowance is not reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion. As such it is not feasible to reckon the same for pay fixation purpose while granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
for Secretary/Railway Board
