Seventh Central Pay Commission accepted by the Government – Payment of National Holiday Allowance to non-gazetted Staff in Pay Level 9 and 10 on Indian Railways

Implementation of recommendations of Seventh Central Pay Commission accepted by the Government – Payment of National Holiday Allowance to non-gazetted Staff in Pay Level 9 and 10 on Indian Railways

No. V/5(g)/Part VI

Dated: 20/10/2017

The Member Staff
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir.

Sub: Implementation of recommendations of Seventh Central Pay Commission accepted by the Government – Payment of National Holiday Allowance to non-gazetted Staff in Pay Level 9 and 10 on Indian Railways-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A[-2017/HL/1 dated 30/08/2017.

 

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to their letter dated 3010812017, quoted under reference, wherein instructions have been for payment of National Holiday Allowance to the non-gazetted staff in Level-l to Level-8 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix. Federation however points out that the said instructions do not cover those non-gazetted Railway employees working in Level-9 and above (erstwhile GP 5400).

 

In this connection, Federation desires to mention that large number of non-gazetted Railway employees have been working in Level-9 and above, but have now been deprived payment of National Holiday Allowance as a result of issuance of Board’s instructions dated 30/0812017. Incidentally, Federation desires to mention that these staff (Level 9 and 10) are fully covered for payment of National Holiday Allowance as they fulfill the conditions laid down vide Board’s policy instructions contained in letter No. E(P&A)I-97/HL/2 dated 1810211998, therefore exclusion of these staff for payment of National Holiday Allowance is not justified.

 

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue amendment to the Board’s instructions dated 30th August, 201,7 duly covering the non-gazetted staff working in Level-9 and above for payment of National Holiday Allowance. A copy of revised instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

 

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

Office Memorandum

Subject:  Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre- 2016 Pensioners/ Family Pensioners, etc.-reg.

DP&PW vide OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated-12.05.2017 on the above subject had issued detailed instructions to all concerned to revise the pensions of pre-2016 pensioners/ family pensioners. But while issuing instructions to PAOs vide CPAOs OM No. CPAO /IT& Tech/ Revision (7th CPC)/ 19 Vol-III/2016-17/37 dated-25.05.2017 inadvertently an important point “that these orders would not be applicable for the purpose of revision of pension of those pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of the CCS (Pension) Rules or compassionate allowance under Rule 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules. The pensioners in these categories would continue to be entitled to get revised pension in accordance with the instructions contained in DP&PW O.M. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A)(ii) dated 04.08.2016″ was missed.

Consequently, it has been noticed that some Ministries/Departments have revised the pensions of pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or Compassionate allowance under 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules also and sent to CPAO. These cases are to be returned to the concerned PAOs by CPAO.

In view of the above, to avoid any further problems arising out of it, all Pr. CCAs/CCAs/ CAs/ AGs/ Administrators of UPS are requested to instruct their PAOs not to revise such cases.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Transport Allowance (TPTA) : Report of the Committee on Allowances

Transport Allowance (TPTA) : Report of the Committee on Allowances

Transport Allowance (TPTA) (Para 8.15.53)

Existing Provisions: Granted to cover the expenditure involved in commuting between place of residence and place of duty. The existing rates are as under:

 

 

Officers drawing GP 10000 and higher, who are entitled to the use of official car, have the option to avail of the existing facility or to draw TPTA @ Rs.7000 + DA.

 

Differently abled employees are granted TPTA at double rates subject to a minimum of Rs.1000+DA.

 

Recommendations of 7th CPC: Transport Allowance is already fully DA indexed. Therefore, following rates of Transport Allowance are recommended:

 

Officers in Pay Level 14 and higher, who are entitled to the use of official car, will have the option to avail themselves of the existing facility or to draw the TPTA at the rate of Rs.15,750+DA pm.

Differently abled employees will continue to be paid at double rate, subject to a minimum of Rs.2,250 plus DA.

 

Demands:
I. National Council (Staff Side), JCM:

 

i. There should be only two levels for Transport Allowance, as under:
Level 9 and above
Rs.7500+DA (Higher TPTA Cities)
Rs.3750 + DA (Other Places
Below Level 9
Rs.3750+DA (Higher TPTA Cities)
Rs.1875 + DA (Other Places)

 

ii. Income Tax exemption, which was available for Transport Allowance, may be reintroduced.

 

II. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare: SAG Doctors should be paid Transport Allowance at the rates admissible to Joint Secretary in lieu of Staff Car.

 

Analysis and Recommendations of the Committee: The Committee notes that the Transport Allowance is fully indexed to Dearness Allowance and the rates have accordingly been revised by the 7th CPC. As the demands do not relate to any changes recommended by the 7th CPC, the recommendations of the 7th CPC on Transport Allowance may be accepted without any change.

 

When this allowance was introduced by 5th CPC, the entire amount was exempted from Income Tax. However, the Committee is not making any recommendations relating to raising of Income Tax ceiling on Transport Allowance as it is not within the purview of the Committee. The matter may be taken up separately with Department of Revenue.

House Rent Allowance (HRA) : Report of the Committee on Allowances

House Rent Allowance (HRA) : Report of the Committee on Allowances

House Rent Allowance (HRA) (Para 8.7.3-16)

 
Existing Provisions: HRA is paid @30, 20 and 10 percent for X class (50 Lakh & above), Y class (5 to 50 lakh) and Z class (below 5 lakh) cities respectively.

 

At present, in the case of those drawing either NPA or MSP or both, HRA is being paid as a percentage of BP+NPA or BP+MSP or BP+NPA+MSP respectively.

 

Recommendations of 7th CPC: It has been retained and rationalized. After applying a multiplication factor of 0.8, the rates have been revised downwards to 24 percent, 16 percent and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for X, Y and Z class cities, respectively.

 

The rate of HRA will be revised to 27 percent, 18 percent and 9 percent when DA crosses 50 percent, and further revised to 30 percent, 20 percent and 10 percent when DA crosses 100 percent. Add-ons like NPA, MSP, etc. should not be included while working out HRA.

 

Demands:
I. National Council (Staff Side), JCM: HRA may be retained @30%, 20% and 10% for X, Y and Z cities respectively as the Commission has taken unreliable statistics to determine HRA, which has been reduced by a multiplication factor of 0.8 to 24%, 16% and 8% for X, Y and Z cities respectively.

 

II. CAG, Civil Aviation, M/o Health & FW, M/o HRD – D/o of Higher Education, MEA, Coal, DAE, DRDO, Dep. Of Space, CVC: Retain the allowance at the existing rates.

 

III. M/o of Law & Justice- D/o Justice: Cities having population of more than 1 crore may be granted HRA @ 30%.

 

Analysis and Recommendations of the Committee: The Committee has the following observations on the recommendations of the 7th CPC on HRA:
(I) HRA rates have been revised downwards by applying the multiplication factor of 0.8 applied by the 7th CPC on all percentage- based allowances. This was done to neutralise the significant increase in the Basic Pay. All fixed allowances have only been given an inflation indexed increase by the 7th CPC. While the 7th CPC has not explicitly stated how the multiplication factor of 0.8 has been arrived at anywhere in the Report, it may be seen that factoring in the expected Dearness Allowance of 125% on 01.01. 2016 would have yielded a multiplication factor of 0.875 which may have been rounded off to 0.8.
(II) On the 7th CPC recommendation that the rate of HRA will be revised to 27%, 18% and 9% when DA crosses 50 percent and further revised to 30%, 20% & 10% when DA crosses 100%, the Committee is of the view that given the inflation rates since January 2016 and the RBI policy on inflation, the DA rates might not go beyond 50% in the next 10 years.
(III) While the rents for residential accommodation have not gone up significantly in the recent past and might also have fallen in some areas, the HRA at the rates recommended by the 7th CPC at the lower levels might not continue to be adequate as per the prevailing market rent.

 

In view of these observations, the Committee has deliberated upon the following three options which separately, or in combination, can be suggested by way of modifications to the 7th CPC recommendations:

 

Option (i): Having regard to submissions made before it stating that towards the later part of the ten year period, HRA compensation falls considerably short of requirement, the 7th CPC has recommended that the rate of HRA will be revised to 27 percent, 18 percent and 9 percent when DA crosses 50 percent, and further revised to 30 percent, 20 percent and 10 percent when DA crosses 100 percent. However, considering the present inflation rate, the rate of increase of the Dearness Allowance and future inflation projections, it appears unlikely that DA rates will reach 100 % in the ten year period. Taking this into consideration, the Committee considered that the timing of the upward revisions in HRA rates proposed by the 7th CPC may be advanced as under:

 

report-on-allowances-hra

 

 

This would have no immediate financial implication and the 1st revision, as per the current trend of increase in DA, is expected to occur in July, 2018. Accordingly, additional annual financial implication in July, 2018 will be approximately Rs.1850 crore. The additional financial implication in the second, third and fourth revision will also be
approximately Rs.1850 crore per annum.

 

Option (ii): Instead of advancing the full restoration of HRA rates, the Committee considered splitting the revisions proposed by 7th CPC as under:

 

7th-CPC-report-on-allowances-hra

 

The financial implication would be similar as in Option (i) except that the timing of the revision would undergo a change.

 

Option (iii): It has been pointed out that at the recommended rates, HRA at the minimum level might not be sufficient. The minimum HRA calculated at the entry level of Level 1for X, Y and Z category cities at the rates recommended by the 7th CPC will be Rs.4320, Rs.2880 and Rs.1440 respectively. The Committee considered recommending that the HRA at the rates recommended by the 7th CPC may be subject to a floor which may be fixed at Rs.5400, Rs.3600 and Rs.1800 per month, calculated at 30%, 20% and 10% of the minimum pay for X, Y and Z category cities respectively. This will benefit employees in Levels 1, 2 and 3.

 

The additional financial implication is estimated to be Rs. 385.00 crore and around 7.70 lakh employees shall be benefited. After a detailed consideration of the above options, the Committee recommended that either only option (iii) or option (iii) in combination with option 

(ii) be accepted. A final decision in this regard may be taken by E-CoS.

Subject: Implementation of Govt. decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission in respect of the Post-01.01.2016 retired Armed Forces Pensioners/ Family Pensioners : Reg. New PPO Series.

Office of the PCDA (Pension) Allahabad was in the process to implement e-PPO’s for all categories of pensioners. In the first phase, corrigendum PPOs to revise pension of Pre- 2016 defence civilian pensioners have been issued through e-PPOs. Various PDAs have already revised pension of such pensioners. A new PPO series was introduced for these corrigendum PPOs which contained 12 digits with PPO suffix of 4 digits. For this purpose, only electronic PPOs (e-PPO) were generated which were digitally signed. No physical PPO was printed and sent to any agency. These new PPO (e-PPO) also contained a QR code wherein all important data was embedded. This QR code could be used by PDA’s to capture the data.

2. Now, it has been decided to discontinue issue of physical PPOs in respect of ICOs and JCOs/ORs of Indian Army w.e.f. October, 2017. In other words, in respect of fresh retirees of Indian Army (retiring or being discharged) from the month of October, 2017, only e-PPO will be issued with following features

(a) These documents will be digitally signed.

(b) These PPOs will contain 16 digits to identify the PPO (12 digits PPO No. and 4 digits as PPO suffix).

(c) They will contain a QR code where data of various fields will be embedded.

3. These e-PPOs will be sent to the banks through SFTP connectivity which this office has established with various banks. Other banks, with whom there is no SFTP connectivity, are advised to immediately take necessary measures to establish the same. In the interim period till the time they establish SFTP connectivity, PPOs will be sent through email id pcdapedp.cgda@nic.in . Similarly, these PPOs will be sent to DPDOs through the CGDA WAN. Other PDAs such as Director of all State Treasuries; IE Kathmandu, Nepal; Post Office, Kathua; PAO, Delhi etc are requested to kindly immediately provide an email ID of .nic or any other domain under control of government for this purpose. Regarding submission of e-Scroll, PDAs are requested to refer to para 6 of this office Circular No. C- 169 dated 11.07.2017. All PDAs are requested to strictly follow the procedure prescribed
therein.

4. The procedure of forwarding the e-PPOs will be as under:

(a) For JCOs/ORs: A copy of e-PPOs, duly digitally signed, will be sent electronically to Record Offices (ROs). The concerned RO, after scrutinising and checking the e-PPO, is requested to forward a hard copy of the e-PPO (after printing from the PDF file) along with Descriptive Roll of the pensioner to PDA concerned. ROs are also requested to kindly provide a copy of the e-PPO to the Armed Forces Pensioners/ Family Pensioners for their record either as hard copy or through e-mail as deemed fit. If any discrepancy is observed by the RO in e-PPO or death occurs before the date of retirement/discharge, then this fact may be immediately brought to the notice of PSA for remedial measures. PDAs are advised to affect payment based on e-PPO after confirmation from Record Office concerned in the form of receipt of hard copy of e-PPO and Descriptive Roll.

(b) For Commissioned Officers: A copy of e-PPOs, duly digitally signed, will be sent electronically to Army HQ. In order to have enhanced security in the process, the Army HQ after scrutinising and checking the e-PPO, is requested to forward a hard copy of the e-PPO (after printing from the PDF file) to the PDA concerned. The Army HQ is also requested to kindly provide a copy of the e-PPO to the Armed Forces Pensioners/ Family Pensioners for their record either as hard copy or through e-mail as deemed fit. If any discrepancy is observed by the Army HQ in e-PPO or death occurs before the date of retirement, then this fact may be immediately brought to the notice of PSA for remedial measures. PDAs may commence the payment of pension on basis of e-PPO and Descriptive Roll from this office and hard copy of e-PPO received through Army HQ.

One copy of the e-PPO will also be sent to the PCDA(O) , Pune in respect of all Commissioned Officers. PCDA(O), Pune is requested to check all entries printed in the e- PPO with reference to the LPC-Cum-Datasheet forwarded by them. In case any discrepancy is noticed, the same should be immediately brought into the notice of this office.

(c) PDAs shall wait for the confirmation from the Army HQ / Record Office as the case may be, before releasing the first payment and starting pension payment monthly.

(d) It shall also be confirmed by the PDA that the payment is not being released again in respect of same PPO number (including the PPO suffix of 4 digits) to the pensioner inter-alia due to duplicate receipt of e-PPO. In such a scenario, the PDA will inform the PSA that the event of duplicate transmission of the given PPO has been detected and no action on such e-PPOs except the first one has been taken. 6. Pension certificate issued by this office in respect of JCOs/ORs is discontinued with immediate effect.

7. The PPO series circulated by this office Circular No. 571 dated 19.12.2016 in case of JCO/ORs and Circular No. 27 dated 24.11.2016 in case of ICOs stand withdrawn with immediate effect except for those PPO’s which pertain to blocks of manual PPO’s.

Cabinet approves revised pay scales of teachers and equivalent academic staff in Universities/Colleges & centrally funded technical institutions

7th-CPC-revised-pay-scales-teachers-university

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given its approval for revision of pay scales for about 8 lakh teachers and other equivalent academic staff in higher educational institutions under the purview of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and in Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, following implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission for Central Government employees.

The decision will benefit 7.58 lakh teachers and equivalent academic staff in the 106 Universities / Colleges which are funded by the UGC/MHRD and also 329 Universities which are funded by State Governments and 12,912 Govt. and private aided colleges affiliated to State Public Universities.

In addition, the revised pay package will cover teachers of 119 Centrally Funded Technical Institutions viz. IITs, IISc, IIMs, IISERs, IIITs, NITIE. etc.

The approved pay scales would be applicable from 1.1.2016. The annual Central financial liability on account of this measure would be about Rs. 9,800 crore.

The implementation of this pay revision will enhance the teachers’ pay in the range of Rs. 10,400 and Rs. 49,800 as against the extant entry pay due to the implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission for the pay of teachers. This revision would register an entry pay growth in the range of 22% to 28 %.

For the State Govt. funded institutions, the revised pay scales will require adoption by the respective State Governments. The Central Government will bear the additional burden of the States on account of revision of pay scales. The measures proposed in the revised pay structure are expected to improve quality of higher education and also attract and retain talent.
