Cabinet approves release of additional 1% Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to pensioners w.e.f. 01.07.2017

Cabinet approves release of additional 1% Dearness Allowance to Central Government Employees and Dearness Relief to pensioners w.e.f. 01.07.2017

Additional-Dearness-Allowance-Central-Government-Employees

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for release of additional 1% Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners. It will be applicable from 01.07.2017.

The release of the additional instalment of DA represents an increase of 1% over the existing rate of 4% of the Basic Pay/Pension, to compensate for price rise. This increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.

The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both DA and DR would be Rs.3068.26 crore per annum and Rs.2045.50 crore in the financial year 2017-18 (for a period of 8 months from July, 2017 to February, 2018). This will benefit about 49.26 lakh Central Government employees and 61.17 lakh pensioners.

Is it possible to Increase the 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor?

Is it possible to Increase the 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor?

7th-CPC-Minimum-Pay

7th CPC Minimum Pay – Don’t give false hope and drag the issues till next Pay Commission

Is it really possible to Increase the Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor even 18 Months after the resolution for Implementation of 7th CPC Recommendation issued ?

What is that NCJCM Staff Side really wanted to convey to the Central Government Employees by posting such letters regarding Increasing of Minimum Pay and Improving of Fitment formula.

NCJCM Staff Side is the only hope and Final Destination for Central Government staffs to ask to settle their issues under negotiated settlement. But it seems that the Staff Side is not using this forum effectively to resolve the issues pertaining to the Central Government Employees.

The issues of HRA and Minimum pay are perfect examples of the failure of NCJCM Staff Side.

The central Government employees wouldn’t have faced such huge loss in payment of HRA if the same rate is implemented with effect from the date of Notification i.e 25.7.2016

When the Central Government was not even ready to reinstate the HRA at Sixth CPC rates, how come one expect that the Government will increase the Minimum Pay to Rs. 21000 or fitment factor from 2.57 to 3. Don’t give false hope and drag the issues till next Pay Commission.

Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum

7th CPC – Payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum

No. III/DR/2/Part IV

Dated : 05/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum-reg.

Federation invites kind attention of Railway Board to para 8.16.14 of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission, according to which, the Track Maintainers, Running Staff Car Drivers, Points Man, Technicians in Workshops etc., on Indian Railways who are supplied uniform and are required to wear dress regularly have been recommended to be paid Rs. 5000/- per year as Dress Allowance (including shoes).

Vide foot note to the above recommendation, the 7th CPC has also recommended that the Ministries/Departments may take a decision on “whether the rates should be Rs. 5000/- per year or Rs. 10,000/- per year“. This recommendation has been accepted by the Government.

In this connection, NFIR points out that the Dress Allowance amount of Rs.5000/- per annum is very much inadequate to take care of the annual requirement of the staff in Railways, particularly due to the reason that staff of Railway categories’ are required to wear the uniform regularly while on duty as per extant rules.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider payment of Dress Allowance at Rs.10,000/- per annum to the Track Maintainers, Running Staff, Ticket Checking Staff, Pointsmen, Technicians etc., and accordingly issue instructions to GMs etc.,

A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,

Illegal withdrawal of Family Planning Allowance withdrawal of orders urged

NFIR: Illegal withdrawal of Family Planning Allowance withdrawal of orders urged

No. 1/5(g)/Part VI

Dated: 04/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Illegal withdrawal of Family Planning Allowance -withdrawal of orders -urged.

Ref: (i)   Railway Board’s letter No. PC V/2008/A/O/2 (FPA) dated 14/10/2008 (RBE No. 151/2008).

(ii). Railway Board’s letter No. PC V/2017/A/FPA/1 dated 28/07/2017 (RBE No.77/2017).

The Railway Board vide instructions dated 28/07/2017 (RBE No. 77/2017) has discontinued Family Planning Allowance hitherto allowed to the serving employees, having undergone Family Planning Operation with effect from 1st July 2017, citing Government’s decision on the recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission. In this connection, NFIR invites Railway Board’s attention to the following valid points for reviewing its decision:-

(a) The 7th CPC vide para 8.17.50 of its report has observed as follows:-

“the level of awareness regarding appropriate family size has also gone up among the government servants, Hence, a separate allowance aimed towards population control is not required now. Accordingly, it is recommended that Family Planning Allowance should be abolished.”

The Ministry of Finance vide OM F.No. 12(4)/2016-EIII.A dated 7th July 2017 has decided to accept. the recommendation of 7th CPC which means that the provision for granting Family Planning Allowance stood abolished henceforth (i.e. July 1, 2017).

(b) Nowhere, the 7th CPC has recommended for discontinuance of Family Planning Allowance already allowed in the past in terms of Government’s decision – OM No. 7(39)E.III/79 dated 4th December, 1979. In view of this, the Railway Board’s decision vide para 2 of its letter dated 28th July 2017 (RBE 77/2017) that Family Planning Allowance, as admissible hitherto, shall cease to exist in all cases, is not only illegal but also highly unjustified. It needs to be appreciated that the said Family Planning Allowance has been allowed as a result of conscious decision taken by Government decades back. Withdrawing the said allowance for the past cases is unconstitutional, leading to avoidable litigation.

(c)  7th Schedule of the Constitution’s 42nd amendment, inserted (C) Entry 20-A, providing for population control and family planning is one of the constitutional provisions. As a follow up to the said constitutional provision, the Government had granted incentive in the form of Family Planning Allowance to encourage small families and several employees have fulfilled the norms prescribed for entitlement of the said incentive and got the said allowance. Withdrawing the said Family Planning Allowance allowed already, at this stage by mis-quoting 7th CPC recommendation and Government’s decision is bad in law and also immoral.

(d) NFIR, further reiterates that a careful reading of 7th CPC recommendation reveals that the Family Planning Allowance be abolished as the Commission has never stated that the allowance already allowed be withdrawn/discontinued or should cease to exist in all cases.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly correct para 2 of letter dated 28th July 2017 suitably for continuing the Family Planning Allowance in those cases where it was rightly granted pursuant to Government’s Policy decision. NFIR suggests that in case the Railway Ministry is not convinced with the logic and facts placed above, the Federation’s contentions may be sent to the Ministry of Finance for clarification. Federation may please be replied on action being taken on the subject early.

Yours faithfully

S/d,

4. The dearness relief sanctioned by the Government from 1.1.2016 and thereafter, shall also be paid on rates of disability element and monthly ex-gratia award to Cadet(Direct), revised in accordance with the provision of this letter.

Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission – Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprivel of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2

7th Central Pay Commission -Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprive of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2-reg

N.F.I.R.
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen’s

No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC/Allowance/2016/Part I

Dated: 28/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission -Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprivel of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/2017/A/TA/1 dated 17/08/2017 (RBE No.96/2017).

NFIR invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the modified instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 17/08/2017 on payment of Transport Allowance at revised rates, stating that the Railway employees who are drawing pay of Rs.24,200/- & above in Pay Level 1 & 2 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix are entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs.3600 plus DA thereon in cities mentioned in the Annexure to Board’s letter dated 03/08/2017 and @ Rs.1800 plus DA thereon at all other places.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that with the issuance of instructions dated 17/08/2017, an anomalous situation has arisen wherein the Railway employees in Pay Level 3, drawing pay Rs. 21,700/- and above upto Level 8 are entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600 + DA thereon (in Al/A class cities and in other cities @ Rs. 1800 + DA thereon), while those in Pay Level 1 & 2 are made eligible for the Transport Allowance at the said rate (i.e. Rs. 3600/- + DA thereon) on reaching the Pay of Rs. 24,200/- and above.

Federation further desires to state that pursuant to the recommendations of 5th CPC and 6th CPC, the following instructions were issued:-

Recommendations of 5th CPC – Transport Allowance

RBE No. 179/1997 (rates w.e.f. 01/08/1997)

S.No Pay Scale of the Employees A 1/A Class City Other Places
1 Rs.8000-13500 or above 800 400
2 Rs.6500-10500 or above but below Rs.8000-13500 400 200
3 Below Rs.6500-10500 100 75

Above position reveals that all the employees working in pay scale below Rs. 6500-10500 i.e. upto Rs. 6000-9800 (S1 to S1OA) were allowed Transport Allowance at the uniform rate of Rs. 100/- p.m. in Al/A class cities irrespective of their pay.

Recommendations of 6th CPC -Transport Allowance

RBE No.111/2008 (rates w.e.f 01/09/2008) & RBE No.95/2015

Employees drawing Grade Pay of
Rate of Transport Allowance For A 1/A Class cities
GP 5400 & above 3200 + DA
GP 4200-4800,GP below 4200 and pay in pay band = Rs.7440 1600 + DA
GP below 4200 and Pay below Rs.7400 600 + DA

From the above, it could be seen that the employees were allowed higher rate of Transport Allowance on reaching the pay @ Rs.7440/- irrespective of their Grade Pay (PB-) viz., GP 1800,1900,2000,2400,2800.

The above position shows that the Board’s instructions dated 03-08-2017 and 17-08-2017 have deprived the Transport Allowance at Rs.3600/- + Da thereon to the staff working in pay Level 1 & 2 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix due to the restriction that such higher rate of Transport Allowance is allowed on reaching the pay of Rs.24,200, inspite of the fact that they were already drawing higher rate when their pay was Rs.7,440/- in 6th CPC Grade Pay 1800,1900,2000,2400 and 2800.

Federation contends that the ends of justice would be met if the Railway employees working in Pay Level 1 & 2 are also allowed payment of Transport Allowance at higher rate i.e.Rs.3600/- + DA thereon when their pay is Rs.21,700/- instead Rs.24,200/-.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to make out a case and refer the matter to the Ministry of Finance for removal of aberration for ensuring justice to lower level staff (i.e.Pay level 1 and 2 also). A Copy of the reference made to the Ministry of Finance, may be provided to the Federation for follow up action.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)

General Secretary.

Central Government Pensioners: Appeal for restoration of Option 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners

No. RSCWS/ HO / 7th CPC/2017-16

Dated: 23rd August, 2017

Shri Arun Jaitley, Hon. Minister of Finance, Govt. of India, North Block, New Delhi-110001
Shri Jitendra Singh, Hon. MOS Personnel, PG & Pension, GOI, North Block, New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Subject: Appeal for restoration of Option 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners – For Parity of Pension between Pre & Post-2016 Central Government Pensioners

Reference: i) DOP&PW OM No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12th May, 2017 & 6th July, 2017 ii) Para 10.1.67 of 7th CPC Report for grant of Parity of Pension of Pre & Post Seventh CPC Pensioners

1. We draw your kind attention to the sad plight of large majority of Central Government Pensioners – especially the Pre-2006 Pensioners and more so the Pre-1996 Pensioners, who will suffer a major financial loss in fixation of their Revised Pension on account of an unjust decision on implementation of 7th CPC Report vide DOP&PW OM dated 12-5-2017 cited above.

2. The Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC) in Para 10.1.67 & 10.1.68 of its Report had for the first time conceded the long pending demand of the Central Government Pensioners for Parity of Pension between the Pre and Post CPC Pensioners and had recommended the following pension formulation for civil employees including CAPF personnel who had retired before 01.01.2016:

i) All the Civilian personnel including CAPF who retired prior to 01.01.2016 (expected date of implementation of the Seventh CPC recommendations) shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by this Commission, on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the matrix. This amount shall be raised, to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree, by adding the number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.

ii) The second calculation to be carried out is as follows. The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations, shall be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.

iii) Pensioners be given option of choosing whichever formulation is beneficial to them.

3. Option 1, cited above, was very much feasible to implement as recommended by 7th CPC for revision of Pension of old Pension since according to the survey conducted by the DOP&PW, it was accepted that the Service Records of over 80% of old Pensioners were available, while those of the others could be re-built as per procedure prescribed in the Rules and as was done after 5th & 6th CPC and as per orders of the Courts in numerous cases.

4. Regrettably, the Committee formed by the Government, to consider the feasibility of implementation of Option 1 recommended by the Seventh CPC, while finding it non-feasible, did not care for the interest of the more than 80% of the Pensioners merely to save the Administration from the botheration of Re-building the Service Records of the rest less than 20% Pensioners. This was a great injustice since the 80% of the Pensioners who’s Records are available, shall suffer a loss of Pension just because of missing records of the rest 20%.

5. Instead, the Government accepted the following formula vide OM Dated 12-5-2017, as recommended by the Committee on Feasibility of Option 1:

“the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, 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. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed. 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 as per the first Permutation.”

6. The above said formula will very seriously and adversely affect the Revised pension of a large majority of the Pre-2016 Pensioners on account of following reasons:

a) “Parity of Pension” between Pre and Post-2016 Pensioners – recommended by the Seventh CPC – would be denied to the Pre-2016 Pensioners.

b) In the process of notional pay fixation in successive Pay Commissions, there is a lot of dilution particularly for pensioners who retired in 4th CPC period resulting in big financial loss.

c) Irrespective of the date of retirement, Option 1 would have given the same pension to pre-2016 pensioners depending upon the number of increments earned in the last Level. By denying option 1 there will be sub-groups even within the homogenous group of pre-2016 pensioners.

d) None of the above losses would occur to the Pre-2016 Pensioners if the Option 1 recommended by the 7th CPC is implemented and if the new formula is allowed as a 3rd Option in addition to Option 1 & 2 Recommended by the 7th CPC in the interest of natural justice to all Pre-2016 Pensioners.

2. It is, therefore, requested that the Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners be fixed at the highest of the 3 Options – including first two Options as recommended by 7th CPC and 3rd Option as accepted by the Government and Notified vide DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017.

Hoping for a favourable consideration & thanking you in anticipation. With kind regards,

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Harchandan Singh)
