Requirement of Budget for the 7th Seventh Pay Commission

Requirement of Budget for the 7th Seventh Pay Commission

Ajay Tiwari/ SNB writes an article about the Demand of Budget for the 7th pay commission for Central Government employees. We reproduced the article and given under to our readers for easy understanding…

Employee Associations want a separate provision to be placed for them by the Seventh Pay commission during the Budget Meeting. Employee Federations scheduled for a Budget Meeting with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on 17 January. All Federations of CG Employees will jointly submit a single requisition during the budget meeting.

The draft that defines the contents of the requisition was put forth to the Employee Associations on Monday. It is understood that the Employee Associations are expecting a tax exemption for an Annual Income of up to Rupees Five Lakhs; they are going to request the Finance Minister to keep the same minimal amount to correspond to the consumer Price Index also.

Pension to all employees is also a point in the submitted requisition. Along with Pension, a request for Social Security and Free Medical Facility for all Employees is going to be strong point from the Employee Associations, and also they want to remove the restrictions of the Central Government for fresh recruitment.

A request will also be raised in front of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, to make permanent the employees working in various schemes of the government, also the employee associations want to express their objection in front of the Finance Minister to the fact that the FDI is not proper in the departments of Media, Education and Health.

In the requisition submitted by the Employee Associations it will be clearly express their protest against the FDI in the sectors of Defence, Railways, Bank, Insurance, Media and Retail Business, also they will continue their protest against disinvestment in the Public Sector Undertakings.
• Finance Minister called for a meeting with the Employee Unions on 17th.
• Pleas have issues such as Income Tax benefits up to Rs 5 Lakhs and Pension to All.

Brijesh Upadhyay, the General Secretary of B.M.S (Bharatiya Majdoor Sandh), the Employee Union of R.S.S., stated that in terms of Policies, all the Employee Organisations will remain united, and hence there will be only a single requisition submitted in the Budget Meeting on behalf of all Employee Associations. However, he stated they are working on the Issues that are to be submitted in the requisition that is to be put forth to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, and it will be finalised within the next 2-3 days. BMS Leader has stated that on Tuesday all the Employee Union Leaders will be available during the meeting with the Labor and Employment Minister, during which there will also be a discussion regarding the budget requisition that needs to be submitted.

The General Secretary of HMS (Hind Majdoor Sabha) Mr HS Sidhu has stated that Issues concerning the Budget Requisition for the Seventh Pay commission, increasing of Income Tax slab to 5 lakhs, Pension to all employees and making permanent all scheme based employees will be a part of the requisition.

An interesting fact to be noted is that most of the demands of the Employee Associations are similar to their previous demands. Previously the Employee Unions couldn’t achieve any of these benefits from the Government and even this time the relationship between the Government and the Employee Unions is not suave. It is awaited to note on Tuesday, how much Labor Minister Bandaru Dattatreya and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley would be able to please the Employee Unions. The General Secretary of BMS Brijesh Upadhyay says that previously the Finance Minister promised an Interim budget and has expressed his inability to give much; hence it is natural that the expectations this time should be more.

BCPC Final Memorandum to 7th CPC

BCPC Final Memorandum to 7th CPC

MEMORANDUM ON PENSION AND OTHER RETIREMENT BENEFITS
CHAPTER – I

Introduction

The Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, Resolution No.1/1/2013-EIII(A) dated 28th February, 2014 in its Para 2(f) has included the following terms of reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission:

“(f) To examine the principles which should govern the structure of Pension and other retirement benefits, including revision of pension in the case of employees who were retired prior to the date of these recommendations, keeping in view that the retirement benefits of all Central Government employees appointed on and after 01.01.2004 are covered by the New Pension Scheme (NPS).”

1.2 The principles that should govern the structure of pension etc have to be evolved taking into account the relevant constitutional provisions as well as judicial pronouncements by the Supreme Court of India in this regard.

1.3 Article 366(17) of the Constitution of the Country defines pension as under:

“ Pension: Pension means a pension whether contributory or not, of any kind whatsoever payable to or in respect of any person and includes retired pay so payable; a gratuity so payable and any sum or sums so payable by way of the return, with or without interest thereon or any other addition thereto, of subscription to a Provident Fund.” From this what is to be inferred is that the gratuity as well as commutation are also part of the pension as a whole. These are also to be treated as pensionery benefits.

1.4 The IV CPC went into the conceptual question of pension in detail. Some of the observations contained in their report are relevant in understanding the purport in the background in which the Central Government employees are placed today. This is reproduced below:-

“Para 2.13: Part II: The concept of “pension” however old in its origin, had the latent and real desire to provide for an eventuality – known and unknown. The known eventuality was old age and probable reduction in earning power, while the unknown eventuality was disability by disease or accident or death. Its real purpose was security, Even though the beginning was oblique, indiscernible and faint, but the germ of an effort to provide security ran through the provision and it is natural that it should have grown and flowered with the development of human understanding and desire to look after and provide for those who deserved it for man has constantly been seeking means by which to enhance his economic security. But the extension of the pension provision from military service to civilian public employment, resulted largely from consideration for the employees and the pressure of their organisations. Some benevolent employer goes to the extent of regarding pensions as an absolutely indispensable complement of wages – a terminal benefit. That, however, is apart from another aspect bearing on pension – the social aspect. The demographic structure of the population is changing because of the greater expectation of life. Thus, those who are now in middle age are going to be nearly twice as big an economic burden to their children as their parents are to them. The problem in such cases, has been tackled as a social obligation, including social insurance for citizens generally.”

“Para 2.17: In the very nature of things, every employee, who lives long enough, reaches a stage of diminished outturn of work or what may generally be called nonproductive years. That may, speaking generally again, be set to be the responsibility of his employer for whom he has spent the best years of his life. In a welfare state that may also be set to be the responsibility of the Government (where he is not in his employment) and, in more modern society, it may also be set to be the responsibility of the individual. So all three namely, the employer, the Government and the employee or one or the other of them, may be expected to contribute towards the pension according to the social or administrative set up of the country or society where the individual undertakes the service but the one common feature and object of pension is to provide for the old age of the employee for the simple reason that time has eroded his capacity to earn and he is unable to provide for himself. In a country like ours, where we have solemnly resolved to constitute it into a “Socialist” Republic and to secure to us all social and economic justice (Preamble), it behoves the Government to take care of its employees by providing terminal benefit like retirement pension when they become entitled to them. We may refer to the directive principle of the State Policy enshrined in Article 39 (a) of the Constitution that the State shall in particular direct its policy towards securing that the citizens have the justify to an “adequate means of livelihood” ….. If, such a citizen is an employee of the State, is it out of ordinary, and not as of a Constitutional directive, that the State should appreciate its duty to provide for him by means of a pension and/or other terminal benefits? (emphasis added) …. The concept of pension, therefore carries within it the germ of certainty, periodicity, and “adequacy”. ……. Ours is a Socialist State and the fundamental aim of Social security is to give individuals and families the confidence that their level of living and quality of life will not, in so far as, be greatly eroded by any social or economic eventuality, including the age of superannuation or oncoming disability”

1.5 The concept of pension has been explained more precisely in the Encyclopaedia of Social Sciences, Vol.11 as under:

“administrators and civic leaders interested in the improvement of Government services formulated the idea of pension as an efficiency device necessary for the orderly and humane elimination of superannuated and disabled employees no longer able to function efficiently for the proper operation of the system of promotions, for the attraction of better type of employees and for the improvement of working morale”

1.6 On the doctrinal approach the Encyclopaedia further states that:

“ A doctrine recently advanced and more far reaching in its implications regard the Public Service as the logical pioneer in the meeting of the old age problem as it affects wage earner in modern society. This doctrine considers a pension as a compensation paid to the employee for the gradual destruction of his wage earning capacity in the course of his work. Retirement being a proper charge against the employees, entire period of active service, the employer should make contribution towards the employees eventual retirement during each year of service of the employee, in a manner similar to that in which he annually sets aside a reserve against depreciation and obsolescence of his plant and machinery. Pensions, according to this doctrine, are an absolutely indispensable compliment of wages.”

1.7 In para 2.20 the IV Pay Commission has observed:

“but even though the Government service pension scheme in our country is non-contributory, it has been contended again by way of doctrinal approach, that this is not really so and that some allowance is made for the missing contribution while determining the salaries”

1.8 The Supreme Court in their Landmark Judgment (which has been approvingly quoted by the 5th CPC in D.S.Nakara and others Vs Union of India (AIR 1983 SC 130) held that Pension is neither a bounty nor a matter of grace depending upon the sweet will of the employer. It is not an ex-gratia payment but payment for past services rendered. It is a social welfare measure rendering socio economic justice to those who in the hey-days of their life ceaselessly toiled for their employer on an assurance that in their old age they would not be left in lurch. The 5th CPC paying due respect to the above observation of the Honourable Apex Court in Para 127.6 of its report has stated that the pension is the statutory, inalienable, legally enforceable justify of employees which has been earned by the sweat of their brow.

As such the pension should be fixed, revised, modified and changed in ways not entirely dissimilar to the salaries granted to serving employees.

1.9 While examining the goals that a pension scheme should seek to sub-serve, the Honourable Apex Court held that “a pension scheme consistent with available resources must provide that the pensioner would be able to live:

(i) free from want, with decency, independence and self respect, and
(ii) at a standard equivalent at the pre retirement level”

The Court observed that we owe it to the Pensioners that they live, not merely exist.

1.10 From the above observation of the Supreme Court it is clear that pension is payable by the employer i.e., the Central Government to its retired employees which is their statutory and legally enforceable justify from which they cannot be deprived. That the amount of pension must be enough to enable a pensioner to live free from want with decency, independence, and self-respect and at a standard equivalent at the pre-retirement level.

1.11 Keeping the above observations and principles and judicial pronouncements in view, we submit below our suggestions for restructuring the existing pensionery scheme in appropriate chapters. We have made our submissions only in respect of issues where we want Commission to consider improvements in the existing provisions.

Memorandum to 7th Pay Commission – AINTSSA submitted on 30.7.2014

Memorandum to 7th Pay Commission – AINTSSA submitted on 30.7.2014

MEMORANDUM TO SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

B.B. Mohanty
Member, Naval Heaquarters JCM Council,
Confederation of Defence Recognized Association

President
All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff Associations.

Address: F-10/105, Kings Ville, Green City,
Ambarnath (East), Thane-421501.
Email-mohanty555@yahoo.co.in
Mob. No. 08655481087

AINTSSA/BBM-DO/31 /VII CPC

30 Jul 2014

The Member Secretary,
7th Central Pay Commission,
Post Box No. 4599,
Hauz Khas Post Office,
New Delhi-110016.

Respected Madam,

PREFACE

On behalf of All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff Association, I welcome and wish all the success to the 7th Pay Commission in their mission of evolving pay structures and other related matters, which is expected to be fair enough for the government employees to lead a dignified life and perform their duties effectively and efficiently.

AINTSSA represents about 4000 Technical Supervisors working in Indian Navy in various Naval establishments of the Nation. They are basically from all the branches of engineering – including Civil , Mechanical , production, Electrical , Computer, Electronics & Telecom Engineering etc. They supervise and guide around 26000 workforce of Navy.

We present this memorandum to 7th CPC representing the following categories in the Indian Navy:
Around 2400 Chargeman
Around 1600 Foreman

Degree of skills, strain of work and requirement of knowledge, experience & expertise, continued & updated technical knowledge with effective training, mounting responsibility and accountability, multifaceted work contents, working condition with hazards and fatigue, mental & physical strain pertaining to these categories have been elaborately explained in the subsequent explanations.

The key to efficiency and competitive spirit in work lies not only in getting appropriate salary for the job but also with dignity & status. We welcome the provisions provided in the terms of reference. Those strategies are to be evolved in order to attract talents and retain them in service which is considered to be the need of the day in the globalised era.

Important role of these middle level managers was recognized by 3rd & 4th CPC which exclusively granted appropriate pay scales to technical supervisors based on their job contents and other factors. But it was shattered by the V & VI CPC which completely ignored their duties and responsibilities and diluted their status by seriously disturbing their relativity.

Further the fact that Naval Dockyards, NSRYs, Training centers and Ship building establishments of Indian Navy are basically technical organizations and the safe successful and efficient performance of the organizations lies primarily in the hands of their technical work forces who are supervised, trained and overseen by these technical supervisors.

7th CPC is requested to look into the serious anomalies caused especially by the Sixth CPC which have demoralized the category due to non-redressal of these anomalies – as brought out in this Memorandum. We request the Pay Commission to kindly evolve a replacement scale to the categories and ensure natural justice and dignity.

Technical Supervisors shoulder the direct responsibilities of safe, efficient & ‘Failure proof’ production, repair, maintenance and operation of almost all the systems of Naval warships of Indian Navy. Reduction of manpower in artisan staff, introduction of new ships, addition of new assets and introduction of new & modern technologies etc, have substantially added to their duties and responsibilities over the years. Other departments provide only necessary support to them in order to enable them to discharge their functions.

It is unfortunate that both 5th and 6th Pay Commissions had underestimated the significance and sensitiveness of the work-content of the technical supervisors, their responsibility and accountability. Many vital factors like their ‘Professional qualifications’ & ‘greater responsibilities’ as well as the accountability towards public safety and efficiency of the Nation went out of sight of both these Pay Commissions.

But, supporting categories like Accounts, Teachers and Nurses who were all along in the lower pay scales than the Technical Supervisors, were given up-gradation and were placed even two grades higher than Technical Supervisors. Worse and even more humiliating is the fact that the pay of categories like MCM, which work under the Technical Supervisors, were also equated with them – undermining the Supreme Court judgment of “the supervisor’s pay cannot be equal to the person being supervised”.

It is our earnest request that 7th CPC may consider the facts brought out in our memorandum. Commission is requested to remove various obstacles that come in the way of attracting talents to the technical supervisory cadre of Indian navy and in improving the efficiency of working system for which the Commission may kindly provide appropriate replacement scales for Chargemen and Foremen, which may justify the relativity of the emoluments in accordance with the job contents, working conditions, accountability & responsibilities, multi-faceted skills & critical management capacity.

I, also earnestly believe that we may be summoned for tendering oral evidence before 7th CPC in line with the earlier CPCs.

Thanking you,
yours faithfully,
(BB Mohanty)
President

Change in 7th Pay Commission visit to Bengaluru

Change in Commission’s visit to Bengaluru

There is a slight change in 7th CPC’s visit to Bengaluru. The Commission now proposes to visit Bengaluru between 24th and 26th August, 2014 instead of the earlier announced date of 25th-27th August, 2014.

The commission has, in its first phase of interaction, been seeking the views of various stakeholders on its terms of reference. To this end, meetings have been held in Delhi with various organisations and heads of various agencies.

In its second phase of interaction, the Commission plans to hold meetings in different parts of the country to facilitate stakeholders staying in various areas to present their views personally before the Commission and ensure larger representation. This exercise is being undertaken to enable the Commission to get a firsthand impression about the functioning and the condition of service prevailing in different parts of the country.

Accordingly, the Commission, headed by its Chairman, Justice Shri A. K. Mathur, proposes to visit Bengaluru between 24th August and 26th August 2014. The Commission would like to invite various entities/associations/federations representing any/all categories of employees covered by the terms of Reference of the Commission to present their views.

Your request for a meeting with the Commission may be sent through e-mail to the Secretary, 7th Central Pay Commission at secy-7cpc@nic.in. The memorandum already submitted by the requesting entity may also be sent as an attachment with this e-mail. An early response in this regard would facilitate proper scheduling of the meetings.

Confederation Proposed New Pay Structure and Rate of Increment in its memorandum to 7th Pay Commission

Confederation Proposed New Pay Structure and Rate of Increment in its memorandum to 7th Pay Commission

Proposed Pay Structure and Rate of Increment

In the preceding chapters we have dealt with the various principles of pay determination as was enunciated by the successive Pay Commissions. The 6th CPC introduced the new concept of Pay Band and Grade Pay. We are not able to comprehend any logical methodology having been adopted by the 6th CPC in constructing the Pay Band and Grade Pay. In the ultimate analysis, we found that there had been no uniform multiplication factor. It varied from 2.2 time to 3. The changes effected by the Government while implementing the recommendations of the 6th CPC further compounded the confusion and making it more irrational and arbitrary.

The 6th CPC in their report stated that they have upgraded certain pay scales having appreciated the contention made by the employees organizations. They merged certain other pay scales in an effort to delayering the functions. But the new pay that emerged from such upgradation/merger was not equivalent to the higher pay scales in the said group. For instance, the erstwhile pay scales of Rs.5000-8000, 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 were merged. The multiplication factor for pay band construction was 1.86 times of the minimum. Therefore the pay band for the pre merged pay scales was determined to begin at Rs.9300/-. Having merged, the pay band must have begun at 12,090/-, i.e. 1.86 times of 6500/- in which the other pay scales were merged.

7.2 The manner in which the Grade pay was devised is also questionable. At the lower level the Grade Pay progresses @ Rs.100/- ,i.e. 1800, 1900, 2000, etc. The pay in the Band + Grade Pay at the entry level is 5200 + 1800 = 7000. An employee is entitled for 3% increment every year. He gets a financial benefit of Rs. 210 every year on account an increment whereas on promotion his grade pay gets increased by just Rs.100/- only. The Grade Pay was devised at 40% of the maximum of the pre revised time scale of pay. The maximum of any time scale of pay will depend upon the rate of increment and the span of the scale of pay. The ratio between the minimum and the maximum of all pay scales was not uniform, rather it could not be uniform.

Therefore, prescribing Grade Pay as a percentage of such variable maximum, in our opinion, was erroneous. Normally fitment benefit represent the gap between pre revised minimum and the revised minimum. The 6th CPC recommendation of Grade Pay did not serve this purpose also. Having been expressed in absolute quantum amount it gave varied benefit in different pay bands as also at different stages in the same pay bands.

7.3 The Grade Pay system brought about various anomalies, which were raised at the NAC but found no resolution despite discussions on several occasions in the last 6 years. We are of the firm view that the 7th CPC should revert to the Pay Scale System which has been time tested. We have constructed the pay scales maintaining the relativities with the time scale of pay suggested by both 5th and 6th CPC.

7.4 While constructing the pay scales we have taken the rate of increments at 5% instead of 3% presently available. We have done so on the ground that most of the PSUs including the banking industries provide the incremental rate at 5% and over a period of time it raises the salary level of the personnel. We therefore request that the 7th CPC may recommend the rate of annual increment at 5%. Incidentally we may also state that the uniform date of increment prescribed by the 6th CPC has encountered certain problems and anomalies. We, therefore, suggest that the 7th CPC may recommend, for administrative expediency, two specific dates as increment dates, Viz. 1st January and 1st July. Those recruited/appointed/promoted during the period between 1st January and 30th June will have their increment date on 1st January and those recruited/appointed/promoted between 1st July and 31st December will have it on 1st July next year. This apart we request the Commission to specifically recommend that those who retire on 30th June or 31st December are granted one increment on the last day of their service.

7.5 We have also felt that a further reduction in the number of pay scales is needed. While constructing the pay scales we have removed those pay scales pertaining to Grade Pay of Rs.1900, 2400, 4600, 8700 and the scale of pay of Rs. 75500-80000. We are of the opinion that the instrument of Special Pay which was in operation earlier should be brought back to address the need of intermediary grades in certain organizations. The Associations and Federations representing the employees and officers of various departments and various categories will submit their memorandum indicating the pay scales to be assigned to the categories of the employees and officers they represent taking into account the nature of functions assigned to those categories separately.

7.6 Presently, functional promotion is made to the next hierarchical position whereas MACP promotion is Grade Pay based, irrespective of the fact whether a particular Grade Pay exist in the hierarchy or not in the concerned department. Our suggestion to reduce the number of pay scales go a great extent to obviate the difficulty encountered due to the dual system of promotion.

7.7 We have constructed open- ended pay scales. This is to ensure that no employee stagnates without increment. The pay of the Secretary and the Cabinet Secretary has been kept as a fixed amount as has been the recommendation of the 6th CPC. In consonance with our view on the need for further de-layering, we have suggested only 14 Pay scales indicating in the table the minimum of each of them. The said 14 pay scales are given below:
In Table 7.2, the corresponding pay scales of the 6th CPC recommended Grade Pay are given for reference.
