Consequent upon the decision taken by the Government on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission vide Department of Expenditure’s Resolution No. 11-1/2016-IC dated 06.07.2017, Cash Handling Allowance and Treasury Allowance have been subsumed in ‘Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance‘.

The powers to grant Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance remain delegated to the Ministries and Head of Departments who, at their discretion, may appoint Junior Secretariat Assistants / Senior Secretariat Assistants / Assistant Section Officers / officials holding substantive post up to level 7 of Pay Matrix, to perform the duties of Cashiers. The grant of Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance shall be subject to the following conditions:-

(i) The amount of Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance to be granted will depend on the average amount of monthly Cash disbursed, excluding payment by cheques/ drafts/ECS/online payments/other modes where cash handling in physical form is not involved.
(ii) The Ministry or Head of the Department concerned should certify, on the basis of the previous financial year’s average, the amount of Cash disbursed and sanction the rate of Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance appropriate to that quantum. The average amount of Cash disbursed should be arrived at by taking the total amount shown as disbursed in the Cash Book reduced by the items disbursed in the form of cheques/R.T.Rs/Drafts/ECS/online payments/other modes where cash handling in physical form is not involved, etc.
(iii) The Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance granted to the official should be reviewed every financial year.

7th Pay Commission Benefits to Teachers and Academic Staff of Technical Institutes
Payment of Arrears (from 1.1.2016) on account of 7th CPC implementation

The government has approved a proposal to extend the 7th Central Pay Commission benefits to teachers and other academic staff of the state government and government-aided degree level technical institutes.

7th CPC Payment of Arrears to Government Teachers

Shri Javadekar informed that the Government has approved proposal to extend the 7th CPC to the teachers and other academic staff of the State Govt. / Govt. aided degree level technical institutions in the country, which will have additional Central Government liability of Rs.1241.78 crore. He said that the Central Government will reimburse 50% of the total additional expenditure (from 1.1.2016 to 31.3.2019) to be incurred by these institutes for payment of arrears on account of 7th CPC implementation.

This will directly benefit a total of 29,264 teachers and other academic staff of State Government funded institutes. Besides, about 3.5 lakh teachers and other academic staff of private colleges/ institutions within the purview of AICTE will also benefit from the approval given today, he added.

This will have additional Central government liability of over 1240 crore rupees. The Centre will reimburse 50 per cent of the total additional expenditure from 1st January 2016 to 31st March this year to be incurred by these institutes for payment of arrears.

An official release said, the measure will directly benefit more than 29 thousand teachers and other academic staff of state government funded colleges and institutes.

Besides, about three-and-a-half lakh teachers and academic staff of private institutes under the AICTE will also benefit. Implementation of pay commission recommendation in State Government Aided / funded AICTE approved technical institutes will help them in attracting and retaining the faculty of high academic standards.

7th CPC: Allowance to Armed Forces

Ministry of Defence
Allowance to Armed Forces

31 DEC 2018

Taking note of the rigours of military life, the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC) had recommended an additional, separate element of Pay for the Defence Forces called Military Service Pay (MSP) which the CPC intended would also maintain the edge enjoyed by the Defence Forces over the civilian scales. The Commission was of the view that the rate of MSP as a percentage of the existing pay has to be maintained in case of officers (up to the level of Brigadier / equivalent) as well as PBORs because the difficulties faced in field situations by both these categories are similar.

The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) had considered all aspects with regard to applicability of MSP including the rates while making its recommendations. This was done after considering the views of the Services in the matter. The 7th CPC has consciously decided not to create additional categories of personnel for the grant of MSP or to disturb the slab rates for the four categories for which it is being paid up to the level of Brigadiers. The Government after carefully considering the recommendations of the 7th CPC in respect of MSP has accepted and notified the same.

Besides MSP, Service personnel are entitled to several other allowances such as High Altitude Allowance, Field Area / Modified Field Area Allowance, Counter Insurgency Allowance etc which are paid based on risks and hardships involved at a location / in an operation.

Engine-wise capacity and interval in years allowed as regards vehicle PURCHASE for officers and jawans:

Eligibility
S. No. Category CC Periodicity
(a) Officers (including Retd / Widows) 3000 Once in Four Years.
(b) JCOs granted Honorary Commission & Equivalent (including Retd & Widows) 2500 Once in Seven Years.
(c) JCOs & Equivalent

(including Retd & Widows)

2000 Once in Service and Once after Retirement. First Car after ten years of Service. Gap between purchases of Two Cars to be Ten years. If the late husband had purchased a car each while in service / after retirement then the widow will not be eligible to buy a car. In case late husband had purchased only one car then widow can buy one car through CSD after gap of 10 years from the date of last purchase.
(d) OR & Equivalent

(including Retd & Widows)

1800 Once in Service and Once after Retirement. First Car after ten years of Service. Gap between purchases of Two Cars to be Ten years. If the late husband had purchased a car each while in service / after retirement then the widow will not be eligible to buy a car. In case late husband had purchased only one car then widow can buy one car through CSD after gap of 10 years from the date of last purchase.

This information was given by Raksha Rajya Mantri Dr. Subhash Bhamre in a written reply to Shri Vishambhar Prasad Nishad and others in Rajya Sabha today.

Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – NFIR

Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission

No. I/5(E)

Dated: 07/12/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/HW-1 dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No. 36/2018).
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. I/5(E) dated 30/07/2018.

Federation vide its letter dated 30th July, 2018 brought to the notice of Railway Board specific cases through illustrations where revised rates of Night Duty Allowance to be paid to various categories of staff have been lowered down on implementation of Board’s instructions dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No. 36/2018) and requested the Railway Ministry to review its decision and issue revised instructions duly allowing the rates of Night Duty Allowance to such staff at the rates mentioned in RBE No. 61/2016 w.e.f. 01/01/2016. A period for more than four months has passed, unfortunately revised instructions have not been issued so far causing financial loss to the staff performing night duty.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to kindly consider the points brought out vide Federation’s letter dated 30/07/2018 and issued revised instructions accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah),
General Secretary

Brief of the meeting held on 07.12.2018 with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

Brief of the meeting held on 07.12.2018 with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

All India Railwaymen’s Federation
4, State Entry Road, New Delhi – 110055

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: December 8, 2018

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Sub: Brief of the meeting held on 07.12.2018 with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

Dear Comrades,
Yesterday I met Hon’ble Minister for Railways and shown our anguish against the inordinate delay in resolving the problems of the Railwaymen at an earliest. We have also mentioned about the discussions held with the Railway Board on 4-5 December, 2018 and our decision of “Work To Rule”.

He had given positive response and called the Member Staff and Financial Commissioner(Railways), Railway Board, telling them to resolve the problems of the Railwaymen at an earliest, including implementation of four grade structure, in the ratio of 10:20:20:50, in case of Trackmen/Track Maintainers, revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff, Restructuring of the IT Cadre, etc. etc. The meeting was held in a very cordial atmosphere and Hon’ble MR had appreciated the sentiments of the Railwaymen organized under AIRF.
This is for your information.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
Pending burning issues of the Railwaymen

The undernoted burning issues have been time and again brought to your kind notice for early redressal thereof because non-redressal of these issue is causing serious deep sense of discontentment among the Railway Staff……

1.Implementation of four grade structure in the ratio of 10:20:20:50 in case of Trackmen/Track Maintainers – As you are very well aware that, the Joint Committee on Package and Career Progression of Trackmen had, unanimously recommended to grant four grade structure to the category of Trackmen/Track Maintainers in the ratio of 10:20:20:50 with a view to facilitate advancement prospects to this ever neglected category of the staff who are directly involved in safe train operation by maintaining railway track. Despite assurance given by the Railway Board, during the course of discussions in Railway Board PNM with AIRF, that, orders would be issued within a couple of days to implement the said four grade structure, final outcome is still awaited, due to which serious resentment is brewing among the Trackmen/Track Maintainers.

2.Revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff – This issue has also been deliberated at length at several occasions, but unfortunately, Railway Board’s instructions to this effect are yet to be issued. The Running Staff, both Loco & Traffic, are seriously concerned due to inordinate delay in revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff because on previous occasions the revision used to be done just after implementation of recommendations of the successive Central Pay Commissions.

I would, therefore, seek your personal intervene, so that, revision of the rates of the aforesaid allowances is done without any further delay.

3.Restructuring of the IT Cadre – Information Technology has gained paramount importance in all walks of the life. While IT Cadre was formed in the Indian Railways more than a decade ago, but there is still some confusion in regard to dysfunction and Human Resource Management. Railway Board had issued instructions for Cadre Restructuring of IT Cadre (Ref.No.2016/AC-II(CC)/37/9 dated 18.04.2017(RBA No.45/2017), No.2017/AC-II(CC)/37/7 dated 29.06.2017 and No.2017/AC-II/37/9 dated 29.12.2017), but unfortunately, an impracticable condition was imposed to surrender all the vacant posts in the cadre, whereas, in Cadre Restructuring of other categories, only number of posts of Matching Money Value were surrendered and not the entire vacant posts. We have been regularly pursuing this issue, and the present Financial Commissioner, Railway Board, also assured to take necessary action in the matter, but final outcome is still awaited.

I would, therefore, request that, this issue should also be looked into on priority and revised orders issued early.

I sincerely hope that, the above issues would definitely be given due attention and necessary instructions shall be issued without any further delay, keeping in view the discontentment brewing among these vulnerable categories of the Railwaymen.

(By Advocate Shri N.D. Kaushik)
(OA No.571/2017)

O R D E R

The applicant retired from the post of Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India with effect from the afternoon of 31.12.2015 on attaining the age of superannuation. His date of birth is 01.01.1956. He has been deprived of the benefits of 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations, which came into effect w.e.f. 01.01.2016 on the ground that he retired prior to that date i.e. 31.12.2015.
2. The applicant submitted his representation dated 14.12.2015 (Annexure A-4 colly.) to the Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training (DoP&T) (respondent no.3) stating therein that he would cease to be a Government servant in the midnight of 31.12.2016 and thus acquired the status of a pensioner in the forenoon of 1st January, 2016. Hence, he is entitled to all the pensionary benefits viz. gratuity, fixation of pay/pension as per 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations. The representation dated 14.12.2015 of the applicant was forwarded by the Additional Secretary (S&V), DoPT to the Joint Secretary, Pension, Department of Pension and Pensioner’s Welfare (DoP&PW) vide letter dated 29.02.2016. The relevant portion of  the said letter is extracted below:

“2. In his representation, Shri Yadav has contended that the pensionary benefits accrue to a person when he acquires the status of Pensioner. As per the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of S. Banerjee, the persons born on 1st January, 2015 were in Government service upto midnight of 31st December, 2015 and acquired the status of pensioner only in the forenoon of 1st January, 2016. Applying the law laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of S. Banerjee, the persons born on 1st January, 1956 acquired the status of pensioner only in the forenoon of 1st January, 2016. The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are likely to be implemented with effect from 1st January, 2016.”

3. Pursuant to the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations, DoP&PW (respondent No.2) issued Annexure A-2 Om dated 04.08.2016 revising the pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners. The grievance of the applicant is that his retiral benefits have been fixed in terms of Annexure A-2 OM, treating him as a pre-2016 retiree whereas he should be treated as a retiree w.e.f. 1.1.2016 and thus the 7th Central Pay Commission’s benefits should  accrue to him.
4. Respondent No.2 considered the representation dated 14.12.2015 of the applicant, which was duly forwarded by the DoPT vide aforementioned letter dated 29.02.2016 and vide impugned Annexure A-1 OM dated 03.01.2018 has declined the request of the applicant. The relevant portions of this OM are reproduced below:

“4. In the case of Shri Yadav, he actually retired on 31.12.2015 and was not in service on 1.1.16. Judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Shri S. Benerjee has no relevance in his case. In fact Rule 5 (2) of CCS (Pension) Rules, has already been amended and as per the amended rule date of voluntary retirement is treated as the last working day. Therefore, those who retired voluntarily on 1.1.2016 would be eligible for pay and pension benefits of 7th CPC as a post 1.1.2016 retiree.

5. Since Shri Yadav retired on superannuation on 31.12.2015, he is to be treated as a pre-2016 pensioner and is accordingly entitled to the benefit in revision of pension under the OM No.38/37/46-P&PW(A)(ii), dated 4.8.16.”

5. Aggrieved by the impugned Annexure A-1 OM dated 03.01.2017, the applicant has filed the instant OA praying for the following relief:

“B) That this Hon’ble Tribunal may be pleased to hold and declare that the impugned orders/action of the respondents is illegal, arbitrary, discriminatory, unconstitutional and violative of Articles 14 and 16 of the Constitution of India and quash and set aside the same and be pleased to further hold that since the Applicant superannuated with effect from the afternoon of 31.12.2015 and relinquished the charge of the post of Deputy Secretary in the afternoon of that date, he, as per law, is deemed to have effectively retired on or with effect from 1.1.2016 and therefore, cannot be treated as pre-2016 pensioner and direct the respondents to grant the retiral benefits such as fixation of pension, DCRG, commutation of pension, leave encashment etc. accordingly and pay the arrears thereof  with 12% interest within a specified time-frame.”

6. Pursuant to the notices issued, the respondents entered appearance and filed their reply in which they have broadly made the following important averments:

6.1 The applicant retired from Government service on 31.12.2015 and accordingly he has been treated as a pre-2016 pensioner and his pensionary benefits have been fixed in terms of the OM dated 4.8.2016 (Annexure A-2) of the DoP&PW.

6.2 As per the provisions of FR 56(a), a Government servant whose date of birth is first of a month shall retire from service in the afternoon of the last day of the preceding month on attaining the age of 60 years. Hence, the applicant, whose date of birth is 1.1.1956 is deemed to have been retired in the afternoon of 31.12.2015.

6.3 The judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court in S. Banerjee v.Union of India, [AIR 1990 SC 295], relied upon by the applicant in para 4 (d) of the OA, is not relevant in the instant case. It is stated that Shri S. Banerjee had retired voluntarily and his date of retirement was 1.1.1986 whereas in the instant case the applicant retired on attaining the age of superannuation in the afternoon of 31.12.2015 and as such was not in service on 1.1.2016.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M.of even no. dated 19.09.2017 on the subject noted above, which inter-alia provides that the travel entitlements of  Government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide Ministry of Finance’s O.M.

Central Government Rejects the Demand to Scrap National Pension System

Central Government Rejects the Demand to Scrap National Pension System

Abolition of Contributory Pension Scheme

Representations have been received from various Associations of Government Employees on the problems being faced and the demand to withdraw the National Pension System (NPS). The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) also in its report examined the issues related to NPS and made recommendations for addressing these issues.

Pursuant thereto, it was decided to constitute a Committee of Secretaries to suggest measures for streamlining NPS. The Committee has submitted its report. Due to rising and unsustainable pension bill and keeping in view of fiscal imperatives, it is not possible for the government to revert back to old pension scheme.

This information was provided by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance Shri. Shiv Pratap Shukla in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 24.7.2018.

7th Central Pay Commission Recommendations on Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th Central Pay Commission Recommendations on Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

Allowances Covered

1. Holiday Compensatory Allowance

2. Holiday Monetary Compensation

3. National Holiday Allowance

Employees, who are regularly required to work on holidays, are compensated in a variety of ways. Some, like the employees of Delhi Police and the CISF, are granted an extra month’s pay per year. Employees of other CAPFs are granted extra thirty days’ leave. Some other categories of staff are paid allowances, which are dealt with in this section. There are 3 such allowances.

1. Holiday Compensatory Allowance

It is a compensation for non-gazetted staff of IB who are required to perform duties on holidays and weekends; granted at the rate of one day’s (Basic Pay + DA) for up to thirty days in a financial year. No demands have been received regarding this allowance.

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission notes that employees in almost all ministries/departments are, sometimes, required to work on weekends. They are usually compensated by providing a “compensatory off.” Thus, grant of an allowance for weekend working is not justified.

At the same time, the sensitive, and time bound nature of work done by IB should also be kept in mind. Therefore, it is recommended that the non-gazetted staff of IB, presently covered under Holiday Compensatory Allowance, should, henceforth, be covered by National Holiday Allowance. They will be granted this allowance for up to twelve holidays in a year (including the three National Holidays) at the rates prescribed. Accordingly, Holiday Compensatory Allowance, as a separate allowance, should be abolished.

[Government Decision on Holiday Compensatory Allowance: Abolished as a separate allowance. Eligible employees to be governed by National Holiday Allowance. Not to be subsumed and retained as a separate allowance. Existing system to continue in Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)]

2. Holiday Monetary Compensation

This allowance is granted in Department of Posts and is payable to postmen and other departmental staff who are required to perform duty on second holiday if three consecutive holidays occur. The existing rates are:

Category  Rate of Remuneration
Supervisor  Rs.85 per holiday for 4 hours
Postal Assistant  Rs.85 per holiday for 4 hours
Postmen Sorting Postmen/Rs.85 per holiday
Multi-tasking staff  Rs.60 per holiday for 4 hours

Demands have been received to increase the rate of this allowance to Rs.600 per holiday.

Analysis and Recommendations

Since the allowance is not DA indexed, it is proposed to raise the amount to Rs.200 per holiday for Supervisors, Postal Assistants and Postmen/Sorting Postmen; and Rs.150 per holiday for Multi-tasking Staff. The rate of allowance will further increase by 25 percent each time DA increases by 50 percent.

[Government Decision on Holiday Monetary Compensation: Retained. Rationalized. Accepted ]

3. National Holiday Allowance

This allowance is paid to non-gazetted Railway employees who are rostered to work on a “National Holiday.” The existing rates are:

Pay in Pay Band + Grade Pay  Rate
up to Rs.7260  Rs.256 per day
Rs.7261-Rs.9700  Rs.318 per day
Rs.9701 and above (limited to non-gazetted staff)  Rs.420 per day

There are demands to increase the amount of this allowance to 1.5 x (one day’s Basic Pay + DA)

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission notes that although there are only three National Holidays, this allowance is granted for twelve days in a year due to operational constraints. Also, the allowance is already partially indexed to the DA. Hence, it is recommended that the amount should be increased by 50 percent to the following:

Level Rate of Allowance (per day)
1 and 2 Rs.384
3 to 5  Rs.477
6 to 8 (limited to non-gazetted staff)  Rs.630

The rate of allowance will further increase by 25 percent each time DA rises by 50 percent.

[Government Decision on National Holiday Allowance: Retained. Enhanced by 50%. Accepted ]

Revision of Casualty Pensionary Awards in respect of Pre-2006 Armed Forces Officer and JCOs/Ors pensioners

Sub:- Revision of Casualty Pensionary Awards in respect of Pre-2006 Armed Forces Officer and JCOs/Ors pensioners: Clarification.

Ref:- This office Circular No. 569 dated 19.10.2016.

There are several representations from various War Veteran Associations demanding the benefit of Maximum of Term of Engagement in OROP as well as in 7th CPC revision quoting the Para-3 of Circular No. 569 dated 19.10.2016. Thus, it appears that there are some misinterpretation /confusion about Para-3 of Circular No. 569 dated 19.10.2016, which needs to be clarified in this regard.

Earlier vide Annexure No.-II of MoD letter No. 200847/Pen-C/71 dated 24.02.1972, there was a provision that Service Element of War Injury Pension will be equal in amount to the normal retiring pension of the rank held at the time of disablement for maximum service of rank. It means Service Element of War Injury Pension was admissible for maximum term of engagement subject to restriction that War Injury Pension should not be more than last pay drawn. Prior to 6th CPC the Service Element/ Service Pension was given 50% of the reckonable emoluments for 33 years of Qualifying Service including weightage, and for lesser period it was proportionately reduced. It is pertinent to mention that after evolution of 6th CPC provision concept of pro-rata reduction has been dispensed with. As per 6th CPC orders pension will be 50% of the last pay drawn irrespective of Qualifying Service. Therefore, relevance of Maximum Term of Engagement becomes obsolete.

The minimum guaranteed pension after implementation of 6th Central Pay Commission, was initially determined on the basis of minimum of the Pay in Pay Band plus Grade Pay vide MoD letter dated 11.11.2008 (Circular No. 397 of this office). This was further modified with issue of MoD letter No. 1(04)/ 2015 / (1)-D (Pen/ Pol) dated 03.09 .2015 for revision of Service Pension/ Service Element in respect of Pre-2006 Commissioned Officers/JCOs/ORs pensioners on the basis of minimum of fitment table for the Rank in the revised Pay Band as indicated under fitment tables, and accordingly Circular No. 547 and 548 has been issued for PBORs and Commissioned Officers respectively. The ibid minimum guaranteed pension was calculated as 50% of minimum of fitment table for 33 years of Qualifying Service including weightage with pro-rata reduction for lesser period.

The minimum guaranteed disability element/war injury element was not covered in the ibid MoD letter dated 03.09.2015. Therefore, .MoD letter No. 16(01)/2014/ D(Pen/ Pol) dated 18.05.2016 was issued (Circular No. 560) for revision of Casualty Pensionary awards in respect of Pre-2006 Armed Forces Officers and JCO/ORs Pensioners/ Family Pensioners, which provides for minimum guaranteed Disability Element/War Injury Element. The clause of pension upto Maximum Term of Engagement in case of War Disabled Pensioners which was admissible prior to 6th CPC was omitted in both the above circulars of minimum guaranteed pension. Therefore, there was a need to clarify this issue and hence the Para-3 has been inserted in Circular No. 569 dated 19.10.2016. After issue of GOI MoD letter No. 1(2)/2016-D(Pen/Pol) dated 30.09.2016 for delinking of qualifying service of 33 years for revision of pension under minimum guaranteed pension, Para No, 3 of Circular No. 569 has become redundant and therefore this Para-3 may be treated as deleted.

After implementation of 6th CPC and subsequently also in 7th CPC, pension will be determined on the basis of 50% of last pay drawn irrespective of Qualifying Service, so the relevance of pro-rata reduction for lesser qualifying service become redundant as full pension is admissible for each qualifying service in each rank. Therefore, pension upto term of engagement has also become redundant. Further, the pension as per OROP rates was based on the live data of 2013 retirees where pension was given as per 6th CPC provisions. Therefore, the demand of pension upto term of engagement has also become obsolete.

Therefore, it is requested that the issue may be dealt with accordingly and the pensioner approaching for this may be clarified on similar lines duly stating that pension upto term of engagement in case of war disabled pensioners in OROP as well as 7th CPC revision is irrelevant.
