Resolution of Anomalies in the 6th CPC Report

Resolution of Anomalies in the 6th CPC Report

RESOLUTION-ANOMALIES-6TH-CPC-7TH-CPC

Recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission (CPC) and several improvements made thereon by the Government have been largely well received by the armed forces personnel including ex-servicemen. Some issues regarding service conditions, pay, pension and allowances, including demand for non-functional upgradation, were subsequently received, which were examined by the Government on case to case basis.

Some of the pay concerns of armed forces personnel were also examined by a committee constituted under the chairmanship of Shri Pranab Mukherjee, the then Minister of External Affairs. The committee’s recommendation on placement of Lt Cols / equiv in Pay Band IV was accepted and implemented by the Government.

Thereafter, a committee was constituted under the chairmanship of the Cabinet Secretary in 2012, to examine certain pay and pension issues of armed forces personnel. All the recommendations of Cabinet Secretary Committee related to ex-servicemen were implemented. The Committee’s recommendations on pay related issues were referred to the 7th CPC.

The improvement of service conditions, pay, allowances and retirement benefits of armed forces personnel is a continuous process, which is examined in consultation with various stakeholders, and on case to case basis.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Rajeev Chandra Sekhar in Rajya Sabha today.

Central government to change the ceiling for tax free gratuity

Cabinet nod likely to double gratuity cap to Rs 20 lakh
Besides, the bill seeks to enable the central government to change the ceiling for tax free gratuity after factoring in rise in income levels by an executive order bypassing Parliament route to amend the law.

The Union Cabinet is likely to consider tomorrow a draft amendment bill which seeks to double the ceiling of tax-free gratuity to Rs 20 lakh under the Payment of Gratuity Act.

Besides, the bill seeks to enable the central government to change the ceiling for tax free gratuity after factoring in rise in income levels by an executive order bypassing Parliament route to amend the law.

“The bill to amend the Payment of Gratuity Act is likely to be considered and approved by the Union Cabinet in its meeting scheduled tomorrow,” a source said.

After the amendment in the Act, formal sector workers would be eligible for up to Rs 20 lakh tax-free gratuity. Last month, the central trade unions had agreed on the proposal in a tripartite consultation with the Labour Ministry.

However, the unions had demanded the removal of conditions asking to have at least 10 employees in an establishment and minimum five years of service for payment of gratuity.

At present, as per the Payment of Gratuity Act, an employee is required to do minimum service of five years to become eligible for gratuity amount. Moreover, the Act applies to those establishments where the number of employees is not less than 10.

Trade unions had demanded that the amended provision regarding maximum amount should be made effective from January 1, 2016, as done in the case of central government employees.

Besides that rate of 15 days wages for each completed year of service be raised to 30 days wages, the unions had said during the tripartite meeting.

The proposed amendment to the Payment of Gratuity Act as circulated by the government only deals with enhancing the ceiling of maximum amount under Section 4(3) of the Act from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh.

The proposed amendment is being brought to bring the maximum ceiling amount to Rs 20 lakh in line with the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations as accepted by the government.

The relevant amendment for central government employees was notified on July 25, 2016 and the enhanced amount ceiling was made effective from January 1, 2016.

The unions were of the view that the delay of eight months for employees covered under the Payment of Gratuity Act should not result in adversely affecting the interest of the concerned employees.

The employers as well as state representatives had also agreed to the proposal of raising the amount of gratuity to Rs 20 lakh in the tripartite meeting held last month.

7th CPC Pay Matrix Anomaly: NFIR writes to Railway Board

7th CPC Pay Matrix Anomaly: NFIR writes to Railway Board

No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B./part I

Dated: 06/03/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix – Pay fixation to staff – Anomaly resulting less pay to senior in comparison with junior – reg.
Ref: Notification issued by the Railway Ministry vide RBE No.90/2016 – Rule 10(2) therof.

NFIR desires to bring to the notice of the Railway Board, the anomalous situation arisen pursuant to sub-para (2) of Rule 10 of the Notification issued by the Railway Board vide RBE No.90/2016. A case on North Western Railway is cited below as example:-

  • Mr.X and Y have been working as SSE in the Loco Workshop, Ajmer in GP 4600/- (Level 7). Mr. X is senior to Mr. Y.
  • Both X & Y have been drawing pay equal to Rs.60,400/- on 1st July 2016. Both the employees are due for financial upgradation benefit under MACPS in the month of February 2017.
  • Mr.X has been given financial upgradation under MACPS and his pay when fixed in Level 8 comes to Rs.62,200/-. His next increment is due on 1st January 2018 when his pay will raise to 64,100/-.
  • Mr.Y has been denied financial upgradation due to ‘Good ACR’ for the year 2014. His pay on lst July 2017 will be Rs. 62,200/- in Level 7 which will be equal to Mr. Y’s pay as on 1st July 2017.
  • When Mr.Y becomes fit for financial upgradation under MACPS sometime between July and December 2017, then his pay will be 64,100/- in Level 8 which will be equal to the pay of Mr.X in January 2018. Subsequently, when Mr.Y will be given next increment in January 2019 ultimately Mr. X will lag behind by six months despite being senior.

The position mentioned above clearly reveals that senior has been put to loss by way of drop in emoluments. This needs to be remedied to do justice to senior employees.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to examine the case in the light of above illustration and take necessary action for rendering justice to senior staff in whose case, the drop in emoluments has taken place. Federation may also be apprised of Board’s response early.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances woes plague central govt employees

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances woes plague central govt employees

New Delhi: Central government employees have not got their higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations over the last seven to eight months.

A central government employees union leader, said the government has not released the higher allowances for central government employees for last seven months.

He said the higher allowances issue has affected about 48 lakh serving central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners, who could not pay their house rents, tuition fees of children, installments of home and vehicle loans and insurance premiums.

We were promised in August, 2016 that the higher allowances (as per the 7th Pay Commission) would be given to us within four months, but we haven’t got its till now.

They (the government) tell us that the model code of conduct has come into effect from January 4 to March 8 for five states assemblies poll process, so they can’t announce the higher allowances. Actually they do not intend to pay the higher allowances in time. In October last year, the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa, who is the head of the Committee on Allowances, said, he was ready with the report to submit the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley but Jaitley didn’t receive the report of allowances, the union leader told.

The union leader said even though the 7th Pay Pay Commission was implemented in August, 2016, the central government employees have not yet been given the higher allowances till date.

Earlier, the government has given higher basic pay in August 2016 with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016 to its employees on the recommendations of the 7th pay commission but the hike in allowances other than dearness allowance referred to the Committee on Allowances for examination as the pay commission had recommended of abolishing 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances.

Accordingly, existing allowances are now paid to the central government employees according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations until issuing of higher allowances notification.

However, the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, promised to address the issue of higher allowances after the completion of the polls of the five states.

Retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances

Cabinet Decision on 7th CPC Allowances only after 11th March 2017

“Retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances – COC Karnataka”.

Allowances

Comrades,
The media is debating that the allowances committee headed by Shri Ashok Lavasa Finance Secretary has submitted its report to the Hon’ble Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyji on 22nd or not. Comrades as you aware that this committee period has expired on 22nd February 2017, the question is that even if it has submitted its report to the Hon’ble Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyji it is confidential document all media creation on the HRA rates are not be believed, the actual truth will be known only after the assembly elections results of five states which will be declared on March 11.

The past experience is that even if the committee decides positively the union cabinet had turn down the recommendations of the committee, hence speculation is not correct, only after the union cabinet approves the recommendations of the committee, the new orders is issued.

The main demands of the CG employees is retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances.

Comrades instead of speculation it would be better we focus on the 16th March 2017 strike, which would put pressure on the Central Government to yield to our charter of demands.

Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary

Gratuity payment ceiling to double to Rs 20 lakh; Unions support government decision

Gratuity payment ceiling to double to Rs 20 lakh; Unions support government decision

The employees of organised sector can now be allowed to withdraw up to Rs 20 lakh from their gratuity fund. In a meeting between the labour ministry and representatives from states, employees and employers on Thursday, the decision reached to the consensus.

The central trade unions have also agreed on doubling gratuity amount ceiling as an interim measure in a tripartite meeting on the proposed amendment to Payment of Gratuity Act conducted today by the Labour Ministry.

The unions demanded the removal of conditions asking to have at least 10 employees in an establishment and minimum five years of service for payment of gratuity.

“While accepting the maximum payment limit of Rs 20 lakh as an interim measure, the unions demanded that the ceilings/ limit with respect to number of employees and years of service should be removed,” the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) said in a statement.

It said, “The central trade unions have been urging the government that the ceiling in the amount of gratuity should be removed.”

At present, as per the Payment of Gratuity Act, an employee is required to do minimum service of five years to become eligible for gratuity amount. Moreover, the Act applies to those establishments where the number of employees is not less than 10.

The statement said the application of amended provision regarding maximum amount should be made effective from January 1, 2016 as done in the case of central government employees.

Besides that rate of 15 days wages for each completed year of service be raised to 30 days wages, the unions demanded.

The proposed amendment to the Payment of Gratuity Act as circulated by the government along with the letter dated February 15, 2017 only deals with enhancing the ceiling of maximum amount under Section 4(3) of the Act from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh, the unions said.

They pointed out during the meeting that the proposed amendment is being brought to bring the maximum ceiling amount to Rs 20 lakh in line with recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission as accepted by the government.

The relevant amendment for central government employees was notified on July 25, 2016 and the enhanced amount ceiling was made effective from January 1, 2016.

The unions are of the view that the delay of 8 months for employees covered under the Payment of Gratuity Act should not result in adversely affecting the interest of the concerned employees.

The employers as well as state representatives also agreed to the proposal of raising the amount of gratuity to Rs 20 lakh, it said.

Central Government employees two greatest expectations from the Allowance Committee report…!

Central Government employees two greatest expectations from the Allowance Committee report…!

“Answers have not yet been found for the two big questions that are troubling the Central Government employees over the Allowance Committee report.”

Reports continue to pour in that the committee on allowances constituted under the chairmanship of Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa is all set to submit its revision report on the recommendations given by the Seventh Pay Commission on the allowances that are being given to the Central Government employees.

There are no confirmed reports of the exact date on which the report would be submitted. The information available now come from unconfirmed and unauthorized sources. The news media claimed that the NJCA leaders were going to meet Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa today. The federation has not yet given any confirmed information.

Nearly 50 percent of the salary increment has not yet been given to the Central Government employees. Only the Basic Pay have been revised; all the other allowances, including the HRA, continue to remain the same and are being calculated as per the 6th CPC.

The Central Government had, on 25.07.2016, published authorized Notification declaring that the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission are going to be implemented. Only the revised pay is being given from August onwards. Only the salary arrears are due from January 01.01.2016 onwards are being issued.

House Rent Allowance (HRA) is a very important allowance being given to Central Government employees. For the past 10 years, HRA for Central Government employees is being calculated on the basis of the population of the town or city where they are employed. The towns and cities are classified as X, Y, and Z, based on the population, and a HRA of 30, 20, and 10 percent respectively are given to them. The Seventh Pay Commission had reduced it to 24, 16, and eight percent.

Normally, the allowances are calculated from the day when the new Pay Commission recommendations get implemented.

Here are the answers to the two questions that keep troubling the Central Government employees:

1. What percentage of HRA has the Allowance Committee report recommended?

2. From which will the revised HRA be implemented, or, will it be given retrospective effect?

Anomalies arising out of the implementation of the seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations

Anomalies arising out of the implementation of the seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations

Centre expands ambit of panel examining 7th Pay Commission-related anomalies

New Delhi: The Centre has expanded the ambit of a panel looking into anomalies arising out of the implementation of the seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations.

The work of the anomaly committee, which has representatives from both official and staff sides, is to act on representations received from the employees against the pay panel’s recommendations.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has modified the definition of anomaly to include “Where the official side and the staff side are of the opinion that the vertical and horizontal relativities have been disturbed as a result of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) to give rise to anomalous situation,” as per the Office Memorandun No.11/2/2016-JCA dated 20th February, 2017.

The inclusion of term “disturbance of vertical and horizontal relativities” (referred to as gaps in pay among various group of employees/officer working at the same level) will help in expanding the approach of the anomaly committee, a senior DoPT official said.

Now the anomaly will include cases where the official side and the staff side are of the opinion that any recommendation is in contravention of the principle or the policy enunciated by the seventh CPC itself without the Commission assigning any reason.

“It will also include cases where the maximum of the level in the pay matrix corresponding to the applicable grade pay in the pay band under the pre-revised structure is less than the amount an employee is entitled to be fixed at,” the order said.

The DoPT had in August last year asked all central government departments to set up committees to look into various pay-related anomalies arising out of the pay panel’s recommendations.

The Centre has accepted most of the recommendations of the seventh CPC being implemented from January 1, 2016.

7th Pay Commission: Government all set to clear revised allowances for central staff from April 1

7th Pay Commission: Government all set to clear revised allowances for central staff from April 1

The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended HRA of 24% of the basic pay for those cities with population over 5 million.

New Delhi, Feb 18: The Union Government is all set to clear revised allowances for the central government staff, precisely after a year of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission. As per reports, one year after the implementation of the new pay and pension scheme, as recommended by the 7th central pay commission, the central government employees might have something to rejoice about after the assembly elections in 5 states are over. Reportedly, the revised allowances are likely to be effective from April 1. (ALSO READ: Committee on Allowances likely to raise HRA to 30 per cent)

House rent allowances (HRA) accounts for about 60% of the total allowances bill, as The Financial Express stated and according to the revised allowance scheme, the employees, mostly in the metropolitan cities are expected to receive greater HRA than the 7th Pay Commission actually recommended. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended HRA of 24% of the basic pay for those cities with a population over 5 million. But the revised HRA which is being looked at by the Finance Secretary-led panel is 30%. Notably, in the 6th Pay Commission, the HRA was at 30% as well for the cities with more than 5 million people. A draft of the cabinet note for implementation of the revised allowance is expected to be circulated soon.

As per reports, the financial implication of these revised allowances will be in line with the Central Pay Commission’s estimate of around Rs. 29,300 crores, which shall also include the railways, in the first year. The panel led by the Finance secretary is also reviewing the CPC’s recommendation regarding allowances. The pay panel has also recommended scrapping of 52 benefits while merging 36 already existing benefits.

Notably, there has been only an additional allocation of Rs. 4,500 crore in the Budget for allowances and it has been assumed that the Railways will bear Rs 7,600 crore of expenditure. But as per sources stated by FE, still, the additional allocation which will be required from the General Budget could be somewhere around Rs. 17,000 crores.

The Government has, reportedly, enough leg space, thanks to the demonetisation move and the extra taxes the people had to pay under the income disclosure schemes. But according to experts, the Budget assumptions were based on optimistic estimates of nominal GDP growth for financial year 17 (FY17) and thus for FY18.

Many have been complaining about the delay in the decision of allowances to the government employees, with some claiming the formation of the panel led by the Finance Secretary as a delaying tactic itself. But this has helped to boost the spending of the government in various programmes by around Rs. 36,000 crores in FY17.

New Delhi, dated: 24.01.2017

The General Manager,
All Indian Railways
and Production Units.

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

It has come to notice that on some of the zonal railways add-on pay element of 55% is not being reckoned for calculation of emoluments for the purpose of retirement benefits for the running staff on the basic pay fixed in the 7th CPC pay structure. As per Rule 924 (iii) of IREM-I that is still valid, 55% of Basic Pay is recokoned as add-on pay element for calculation of pension and DCRG of the Running Sitff. It is therefore advised that calculation of retirement benefits of the running staff may be made as per extant Rule 924 (iii) of IREM-I on the revised basic pay in the 7th CPC.

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