OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Interest bearing advances/ Seventh Central Pay commission recommendation on House Building Advance – enhancement in past cases regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Ministry’s OM No. I- 17011/11(4)/2016-H.III dated 09.11.2017 on the above-mentioned subject and to say that it has been decided in consultation with Ministry of Finance to make the aforesaid orders applicable with effect from 1st January, 2016. Accordingly, it has been decided that an enhancement of House Building Advance, if applied for, would be granted to government employee for an amount equivalent to the difference between the previously sanctioned amount and the new eligible amount determined on the basis of basic pay as per 7th CPC, in past cases, where HBA was sanctioned on or after 01.01.2016 but before 09.11.2017 subject to complying following conditions :

a) The Government employee should not have drawn the entire amount of HBA sanctioned under earlier orders and/ or where construction is not completed/full cost towards acquisition of house/ flat is yet to be paid.

b) There will be no deviation from the approved plan of construction on the basis of which the original sanction of House Building Advance was accorded. The revised cost of the original plan can, however, be considered for determining the additional amount, subject to the prescribed maximum limits.

c) Supplementary Mortgage Deed, Personal Bond and Sureties will be drawn and executed at the expense of the loanee.

d) The actual entitlement will be restricted to the repaying capacity computed on the basis of the formula laid down in this Ministry’s OM No I-17011/11(4)/2016-H.III dated 09.11.2017. It should be ensured that the entire amount of advance with interest is recovered before retirement of the Government servant

e) Rate of interest:

The rate of interest will be at 8.50% from the financial year 2017-18 onwards. This will be reviewed every three years to be notified in consultation with Ministry of Finance. However, the new rate of interest would be chargeable only on collective amount that would remain outstanding on grant of enhancement of HBA, i.e., the unpaid portion of previously sanctioned HBA plus the enhancement so granted. Thus, the amount of HBA that has already been re-paid on old rates will not attract the fresh interest charges.

2. However, the existing limit of maximum admissible amount of Rs. 25 lakhs for the purpose of construction/ purchase of new house/ flat and Rs. 10 lakhs for expansion of existing house/ flat would remain unchanged. In other words, the sum total of previously, sanctioned House Building Advance and the enhancement granted under these orders cannot exceed the aforesaid limits. In any case, not more than one enhancement is admissible to a Government employee.

3. The applications for enhanced House Building Advance should be submitted within six months from the date of issue of this order.

4. Ministries/ Departments with branch offices in the far-flung areas are be advised to give wider publicity to these orders through modern communication means so that there is no occasion for any representation for extending the time limit of six months on the grounds of late receipt of these orders.

5. This issues in supersession of all the earlier orders on the subject.

North Block,
New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Sub: Rectification of MACPS Anomalies – Stepping up of pay of Senior incumbents at par with Juniors – Case of Railway Accounts Department-reg.

The above subject has been taken up by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a recognized Federation of Railway employees, in the Permanent Negotiating Machinery (PNM) fora with the Railway Ministry. In the last meeting held between the Railway Board Members and the Federation on 17/05/2016, following agreement was recorded :-

It was explained to the Federation that the 7th CPC have addressed this issue in one of their recommendations. Therefore, we may await for the final outcome on the 7th CPC recommendations. If their recommendation is accepted by the Government, past cases of similar nature may be examined accordingly. The General Secretary/NFIR requested to see that injustice done to the Senior qualified staff is removed duly granting them the benefit of GP 5400/-.

Federation has since learnt that case file bearing No. PCV/2016/MACPS1(Pt1) dealing with the above subject has been sent by the Railway Ministry to the DoP&T to obtain NOC and has been pending since long period. The delay in granting NOC is causing frustration and resentment among the staff of Accounts Department on the Railways.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Secretary/DoP&T to kindly see that clearance from DoP&T to implement the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission is granted to the Railway Ministry soon.

Federation may please be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully

S/d,

Grant of Children Education Allowance to the railway employees implementation of Board’s decision – problems

Need Uniform Format to Claim Children Education Allowance – NFIR

NFIR writes to Railway Board to issue proper unifrom format to claims for reimbursement of CEA to avoid delay…

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi – 110 055

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

No.I/13(a)

Dated: 04/06/2018

Sub: Grant of Children Education Allowance to the railway employees implementation of Board’s decision – problems – reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s RBE No.147/2017 letter No.E(W)2017/ED-2/3 dated 12/10/2017.

Pursuant to Government decision on the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission, the DoP&T vide No.A-27012/02/2017-Estt.(AL) dated 16/08//2017 had issued instructions revising the amount for reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy. The Railway Board vide RBE No.147/2017 dated l2th Oct, 2017 has issued corresponding instructions to the General Managers for ensuring payment of Children Education Allowance & Hostel Subsidy at revised rates from 01/07/2017.

On Zonal Railways, the staff are facing much inconvenience on account of non-issuance of proper proforma/format for preferring claims, consequently the reimbursement is delayed and claims continued to remain pending due to queries being raised at different levels. It is further learnt that the Eastern Railway, South Eastern Railway and Central Railway have issued proforma/format which are however not common. Other Zonal Railways have not at all issued proforma for preferring the claims. It has however been found that the Eastern Railway Administration has not only circulated format, but also issued JPO.

NFIR is of the view that it would be necessary to bring reimbursement to avoid delay as well staff grievances.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to arrange to issue proper format to enable the employees to prefer claims without hassles together with certificate from the Heads of the Institutions. Such uniform format will be advantageous to the Railway Administration as well to staff who are entitled for reimbursement of Children Education allowance/Hostel Subsidy.

Yours faithfully,

Central Government should increase Minimum Pay and Fitment formula – Karnataka COC

Revision of Minimum Pay and Fitment formula due to increased revenue collections of the Central Government

Comrades,

Today none of the 7th CPC related demands of Central Government Employees are settled. The assurance given by the Group of Ministers to the NJCA leaders regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is in paper even after a lapse of 20 months. Now the Finance Minister has replied in Parliament that “no change in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is at present under consideration”.

To avert the 11th July CG employees strike the Hon’ble Prime Minster had instructed the group of Hon’ble Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singhji, Hon’ble Home Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhuji , Hon’ble Railway Minister and Shri Arun Jaitelyji , Hon’ble Finance Minister to hold discussions with the Staff Side (JCM) on 30th June 2016 and the Shri Arun Jaitelyji , Hon’ble Finance Minister had published a written assurances in the Government website on 6th July 2016 leading to deferment of the strike .

Pay Commission Objective: It is the endeavour of every pay commission to ensure that the pay and allowances of employees should be ‘fair and reasonable’. The pay structure should also motivate the employees to reasonable levels of performance in the tasks assigned to them, so that the general public derive the benefit of their service as intended.

Our demand of revision of Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is quite justified.

Comparison of earlier wage hike we can observe that the fitment factor of 2.57 times is the lowest comparing to other pay commissions. If we make a study of earlier pay commission.

Pay Commission Year Minimum wage ( old ) Minimum wage (revised) Increase
2nd CPC 1959 Rs 55/- Rs 80/- 1.45 times
3rd CPC 1973 Rs 80/- Rs 196/- 2.45 times
4th CPC 1986 Rs 196/- Rs 750/- 3.82 times
5th CPC 1996 Rs 750/- Rs 2550/- 3.40 times
6th CPC* 2006 Rs 2550/- Rs 7000/- 2.74 times
7th CPC * 2016 Rs 7000/- Rs 18000/- 2.57 times

Comparative picture of pay of Central Government and State Government in regards to minimum wage as on 1.7.2017

Many of the State Governments are following the Central Government pay scales, but a few state Governments have improved upon the Central Government pay scales. The examples are as under:

 

Government

Agency

Group “D” Basic

pay in Rs

Add Skill 25%

from Group “D” to Group “C”

Group “C”
Basic Pay in Rs
DA% Add DA Amount

in  Rs

Basic Pay in

Group “C” in Rs

Govt. of India Nil 18000 5 900 18900
Andhra

Pradesh &  Telangana

13000 3250 16250 24.1 3916 20166
Kerala 16500 4125 20625 14 2887 23512
Karnataka 17000 4250 21250 Nil 21250

The financial position of the Central Government is very good. Even the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has shown increase in last few years which is around 7% , the Indian economy is fastest growing and placed 7th in the world ( which is at 2,250.987 billions of $ ), comparing to wages paid in the world our wages are at lower level. The Government fiscal budget deficit equal to 3.50 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product in 2016. Compared to 2008 where the fiscal deficit was at 7.8%, but today the fiscal deficit is contained at 3.5%. This is also a healthy sign of the economic status of the Central Government financial status, the budget fiscal deficit is always below 4%.

Direct tax collections in 2017-18 at Rs 9.95 lakh crore, exceeded the revised budgetary target of Rs 9.8 lakh crore. Also, 6.84 crore income tax returns filed in the year against 5.43 crore in the previous year signalling a rise of 26% . A net of 99.5 lakh new assesses were added to the tax net.

Net collection from corporate tax went up 17.1 per cent while that from personal income tax rose 18.9%.

The revenue collection from Goods and Services Tax (GST) exceeded Rs 1 lakh crore in April 2018, GST revenue collected in April 2018 came at Rs 1,03,458 crore.

With the improved economic climate, introduction of e-way bill and improved GST compliance, GST collections would continue to show a positive trend.

The wage bill of the Central Government on in its employees is less than 10% or 3.4% of the GDP, which is less compared to various countries world wide .

Vacancy of the Central Government is about 15% , more than 4 lakhs vacancies are existing in the Central Government the work load is being carried out by the existing employees. The Government being a model employer should pay for its employees and motivate them to work more for implementation of its policies.

Hence due to the improved revenue earning of the Central Government, as assured to the staff side JCM by the Group of Ministers in respect of increase of Minimum Pay and Fitment formula, the Central Government should increase the Minimum Pay and Fitment formula.

Government Considering an Alternative for Pay Commission?

Government Considering an Alternative for Pay Commission?

Government Considering an Alternative for Pay Commission?

“Whether the Government is considering an alternative for increasing the salaries and allowances of Central Government employees and pensioners in future instead of forming Pay Commission?”

Pay Commission Reports – Q&A in Lok Sabha

Whether the reports of successive Pay Commissions have been increasing the burden on Government finances/ exchequer in partially accepting their recommendations for increase in wages and if so, the details thereof; ?

The financial impact of the recommendations of the Central Pay Commission, as accepted by the Government, is normally more pronounced in the initial year and gradually it tapers off as the growth in the economy picks up and fiscal space is widened. While implementing the recommendations of the last Central Pay Commission, i.e., the Seventh Central Pay Commission, the Government staggered its implementation in two financial years. While the recommendations on pay and pension were implemented with effect from 01.01.2016, the recommendations in respect of allowances have been implemented with effect from 01.07.2017 after an examination by a Committee. This has moderated the financial impact of the recommendations. Moreover, unlike the previous 6th Pay Commission, which entailed substantial impact on account of arrears, the impact in the year 2016-17 on account of element of arrears of revised pay and pension on the present occasion of the 7th Central Pay Commission pertained to only 2 months of the previous financial year of 2015-16.

Whether the last Pay Commission has suggested productivity linked pay hike to the deserving employees to eliminate below average or mediocre performance and if so, the details thereof; ?

The Seventh Central Pay Commission in Para 5.1.46 of its Report proposed withholding of annual increment in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) or regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

Whether such periodic hikes in wages resulting from Pay Commission recommendations trigger similar demands from the State Government/public utility employees, imposing burden on already strained State finances and if so, the details thereof; and?

The service conditions of employees of State Governments fall within the exclusive domain of the respective State Governments who are federally independent of the Central Government. Therefore, the concerned State Governments have to independently take a view in the matter.

Whether the Government is considering an alternative for increasing the salaries and allowances of Central Government employees and pensioners in future instead of forming Pay Commission and if so, the details thereof?

No such proposal is under consideration of the Government.

(a) The financial impact of the recommendations of the Central Pay Commission, as accepted by the Government, is normally more pronounced in the initial year and gradually it tapers off as the growth in the economy picks up and fiscal space is widened. While implementing the recommendations of the last Central Pay Commission, i.e., the Seventh Central Pay Commission, the Government staggered its implementation in two financial years.

Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Act, 2018 brought in force on 29th March, 2018

Gratuity ceiling raised to 20 Lakhs w.e.f. 29.3.2018

Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Act, 2018 brought in force on 29th March, 2018

Decision:The Payment of Gratuity (Amendment) Bill, 2018 has been passed by Lok Sabha on 15th March, 2018 and by the Rajya Sabha on 22nd March, 2018, has been brought in force on 29th March, 2018.

Background: The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 applies to establishments employing 10 or more persons. The main purpose for enacting this Act is to provide social security to workman after retirement, whether retirement is a result of superannuation, or physical disablement or impairment of vital part of the body. Therefore, the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 is an important social security legislation to wage earning population in industries, factories and establishments.

2. The present upper ceiling on gratuity amount under the Act is Rs. 10 Lakh. The provisions for Central Government employees under Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972 with regard to gratuity are also similar. Before implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission, the ceiling under CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 was Rs. 10 Lakh. However, with implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission, in case of Government servants, the ceiling has been raised to Rs. 20 Lakhs.

3. Therefore, considering the inflation and wage increase even in case of employees engaged in private sector, this Government decided that the entitlement of gratuity should also be revised in respect of employees who are covered under the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. Accordingly, the Government initiated the process for amendment to Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 to increase the maximum limit of gratuity to such amount as may be notified by the Central Government from time to time. Now, the Government has issued the notification specifying the maximum limit to Rs. 20 Lakh.

4. In addition, the Bill also envisages to amend the provisions relating to calculation of continuous service for the purpose of gratuity in case of female employees who are on maternity leave from ‘twelve weeks’ to ‘such period as may be notified by the Central Government from time to time’. This period has also been notified as twenty six weeks.

Major Impact: The Bill as passed by both the Houses of Parliament, and assented to by the Hon’ble President and notified by the Government. This will ensure harmony amongst employees in the private sector and in Public Sector Undertakings/ Autonomous Organizations under Government who are not covered under CCS (Pension) Rules. These employees will be entitled to receive higher amount of gratuity at par with their counterparts in Government sector.

Dear Comrade,
As you may be aware the Govt. of India, Ministry of Finance, has given the following written reply in Parliament for a question asked to Minister of Finance, regarding our demand – “Increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula”.

Reply given by Minister of state for Finance:

“The minimum pay of Rs.18000/- p.m. and fitment factor of 2.57 are based on the specific recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in the light of the relevant factors taken into account by it. Therefore, no change therein is at present under consideration”.

From the above it is crystal clear that Govt. has gone back from the assurance given on 30.06.2016 by Group of Ministers including Sri Rajnath Singh, Home Minister, Shri Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister and Shri Suresh Prabhan, then Railway Minister, that Minimum Pay and Fitment formula will be increased and for that purpose a High Level Committee will be appointed to submit report within four months.

Now that Govt. has gone back from its assurance, I on behalf of Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, which is a constituent organisation of NJCA, request you revive our deferred agitational programmes immediately and for that purpose, if necessary, an urgent meeting of the NJCA may be convened.

Awaiting response,

Yours fraternally,

PERMISSION TO OPTION FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE REVISED PAY STRUCTURE ON A DATE AFTER THE DATE OF ISSUE OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016

Option for Pay Fixation in Revised Pay Scale: Confederation

PERMISSION TO OPT FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE REVISED PAY STRUCTURE ON A DATE AFTER THE DATE OF ISSUE OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016 NOTIFICATION DATED 25.07.2016 DEMAND OF THE JCM NATIONAL COUNCIL STAFF SIDE REJECTED BY GOVERNMENT.

JCM national council, Staff Side, has demanded that under the existing orders the option to come over to revised pay structure from the date of promotion is available only for those employees who are promoted before 25.07.2016. The staff side has demanded that such an option of fixation of pay for coming over to revised pay scale may be given to employees promoted after 25.07.2016 also. The staff side has contended that not giving such an option to an employee who was due for promotion on a date after 25.07.2016 (say on 26.07.2016) will be discriminatory. Government has considered the demand and rejected. The following is the reply of the Finance Ministry, Department of Expenditure.

(M. Krishnan)
Secretary General
Confederation
Mob: 09447068125
Email: mkrishnan6854@gmail.com

DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE VIDE OM DATED 30.08.2017

The position on action taken in respect of item regarding permission to opt for pay fixation in the revised pay structure on a date after the issue of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 (notification on 25.07.2016) in the case of employees whose promotion becomes due after 25.07.2016 is given below:

In the said item the staff side has demanded that under the existing orders the option to come over to revised pay scale from the date of promotion is available only for those employees who are promoted before 25.07.2016, the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016. The staff side has demanded that such an option of fixation of pay for coming over to revised pay scale may be given to employees promoted after 25.07.2016 also. The staff side has contended that not giving such an option to an employee who was due for promotion on 26.07.2016 (one day after the date of notification) and afterwards will be discriminatory.

The revised Pay rules contained in CCS (RP) Rules 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016. A person holding a particular post as on 01.01.2016 has an option to come over to revised pay scale applicable to that post either straight away on 01.01.2016 or from a date later than that such an option is clearly mentioned in provisio 1 and provisio 2 of Rule 5. A combined reading of provisio 1 and provisio 2 to Rule 5 provided that a Government Servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in the existing pay structure.

But, in cases where a Government servant has been placed in a higher grade pay or scale between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 on account of promotion or upgradation, the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion or upgradation.

Therefore the rules provide while in respect of post held by a Government Servant as on 01.01.2016, the concerned Government Servant may elect to come over to revised pay scale applicable to that post either from 01.01.2016 or from a date later than 01.01.2016, in case he is promoted to a post not held by him on 01.01.2016 on a date later than that, then he can opt to come over to revised pay scale from the date of promotion provided such promotion takes place between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification. Thus the date of notification of the Rules on 25.07.2016 which are effective from 01.01.2016 is the outer limit for option in cases the option is from date of promotion. The similar was the provisions in the Rules pertaining to the 6th CPC in terms of CCs (RP) Rules 2008. This is the fair and time tested rule, as it seeks to allow option in case of promotion during the retrospective effect of the Rules. There has to be outer date and that date is the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016, which is objective and of fair application. No such objective date beyond 25.07.2016 could be of fair application.

Accordingly it is not possible to agree to the demand of the staff-side.
