CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
1st Floor, North Avenue PO Building, new Delhi – 110001

CIRCULAR DATED 26TH OCTOBER 2016

REVISION OF MINIMUM PAY AND FITMENT FORMULA
2ND MEETING OF THE GROUP OF SENIOR OFFICERS WITH JCM (NC) STAFF SIDE

DISAPPOINTING

2nd Meetings of the Group of Senior Officers (Constituted as per the assurance given by Group of Minister to NJCA) to discuss the grievances arising out of recommendations related to 7th Central Pay Commission, was held with JCM (NC) staff side on 24.10.2016 at 4 PM. The staff side explained in detail the justification for modification in the minimum pay and fitment formula, which was already explained in the memorandum submitted to Cabinet Secretary on 10th December 2015 and also in the presentation made before Joint Secretary Implementation Cell and Empowered Committee of Secretaries headed by Cabinet Secretary.

From the response of the Senior Officers, it is not clear whether they are mandated to submit a proposal on increasing the Minimum Pay and Fitment formula to Government, as assured by the Group of Ministers on 30th June 2016. Eventhough, the time frame of four months is almost over, the urgency and seriousness was lacking on the part of the Group of officers. It seems that that Government is adopting a delaying tactics or to deny the assured increase. Perhaps, they may recommend an increase in minimum pay and fitment formula at a later date, but it is quite uncertain.

Confederation National Secretariat after reviewing these developments has decided to intensify the campaign and agitational programmes demanding the Government to honour its assurance given to NJCA leadership and also to settle the 20 point charter of demands. Make the 7th November 2016 mass dharna programme a grand success. Ensure maximum participation of employees in the 15th December 2016 massive Parliament March. Get ready for strike.

The Secretary, Department of Personnel gave a patient hearing and interacted with staff side on certain points. No commitment on any allowance was given.

AUTONOMOUS BODIES : EXTENSION OF 7TH CPC REVISED PAY STRUCTURE AND PENSIONARY BENEFITS

The issue was raised in the JCM Standing Committee meeting held on 25.10.2016 by the staff side.

All Unions/Associations/Federation and employees of all autonomous bodies are requested to understand the gravity of the situation and make the 7th November 2016 mass dharna programme and 15th December 2016 Parliament March a grand success.

7th Pay Commission Latest News – 3 important demands of NJCA

7th Pay Commission Latest News – Three important demands of NJCA which are likely to be discussed in the 7th CPC Meeting to be held on 1st September 2016

To discuss the anomalies related to the implementation of 7th Pay Commission, the high-powered Committee of Secretaries formed by Centre has invited leading employee union National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) for a meeting on September 1.

NJCA would be represented at the meet by it’s current convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra. Aggrieved Central Government employees pin their final hope in the outcome of the Sept 1 meeting. If the Government constituted body fails to incorporate their demand, a large section of the organized workforce would call a strike.

Although, it has not been revealed whether the Committee of Secretaries would attempt to negotiate the demands at the upcoming meet, it has been assured that grievances of the employees, as raised by the Unions, would be noted down in a detailed manner by the Secretaries. Representing NJCA, Shiv Gopal Mishra is expected to show an uncompromising stand on at least the following three demands: 1) Hike in Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA),  2) Revision in the hike of minimum salary, 3) Availability of ‘Option 1′ for pensioners.

Hike in Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA):

Central Government employees had demanded the 7th Pay panel led by Justice (retd) AK Mathur to raise FMA from current Rs 500 per month to Rs 2,000 per month. The demand appears legit to the employee unions as even many of the private sector companies are paying Rs 1200 to Rs 1800 per month as medical allowance to lower-middle level employees.

Revision of hike in minimum salary:

NJCA, along with other employee unions have raised the demand to restructure the hike in minimum salary using 3.68 fitment factor. The entry-level pay as per 6th Pay Commission was Rs 7,000. The AK Mathur-led panel increased the minimum salary by multiplying with 2.57 fitment factor. This increased the salary to Rs 18,000. If the 3.68 fitment factor would be used, the minimum salary would be restructured to Rs 26,000.

Availability of ‘Option 1′:

The All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association (AIPRPA) has demanded the Government to enable Option 1 for hiking their pensions. According to Option 1, the hiked pensions would be fixed in the pay matrix on basis of the grade and and pay band in which they were enrolled at the time of retirement. According to the second option, the pay panel has recommended the pension hike by using 2.57 fitment factor. The second option would multiply their existing pensions by 2.57.

Despite Shiv Gopal Mishra appearing as the leading voice among those who are articulating the cause of aggrieved employees, a number of central government employees have raised doubts against him. His decision to roll back the July 11 mass strike, which was expected to evoke the participation of 33 lakh central government employees, has not gone down well with those among the dissidents. Several employees have straightaway asserted that if the government fails to pay heed to at least the above three demands, a rejuvenated call for strike should be made.

7th Pay Commission expected to submit its report to the Centre in September

7th Pay Commission expected to submit its report to the Centre in September

“The 7th Pay Commission’s status quo explanation on its report has created a huge buzz”

According to reliable sources of information, the 7th Pay Commission is expected to submit its final report including the revised pay and pension structure for Central Government employees and pensioners to the Central Government on in the first week of September.

As confirmation of the news, the 7th Pay Commission, on its official website had published an announcement yesterday. It said, “Pay and Pension proposals, expectations in facilities & benefits, and valuable suggestions were received from Central Government employee unions, associations, members of the Defence services and NC JCM Staff Side. All these will be considered. Personal interactions shall not be held anymore. All the demands and suggestions have been examined and the task of preparing the final recommendation report has almost ended. In addition to this, the report containing all the recommendations will be prepared within the stipulated time that was allocated.”

Everybody is pleased with the authorized news that the 7th Pay Commission report, which contains the new pay and perk structure that directly affects more than 40 lakh Central Government employee all over the country, will be ready on time.

There were rumours that the Commission might seek an extension of another six months. Many reasons were given for this claim and most of these were very convincing. It is a welcome move on the part of the 7th Pay Commission to voluntarily come forward and announce their current status.

If everything goes as planned, the 7th Pay Commission recommendations will come into effect from 01.01.2016 onwards.

Meanwhile, there is no doubt in the fact that employees are extremely curious to find out how much their salaries would increase if the new Pay Commission recommendations are implemented.

7th Pay Commission: CPWD engineers want pay, rank parity with IAS

7th Pay Commission: CPWD engineers want pay, rank parity with IAS: The Indian Express – By Shalini Narayan

They demanded that Group ‘A’ engineers be treated at par, in terms of pay scale and career progression, with IAS officers.

Representatives of the Central Public Works Department’s (CPWD) Central Engineering Service Group ‘A’ association, on Thursday, approached the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

They demanded that Group ‘A’ engineers be treated at par, in terms of pay scale and career progression, with IAS officers.

The association has also demanded that they be given an additional 25 per cent of their basic pay as “non-practicing allowance”.

It has also asked that engineers be imparted at least a two-year international training exposure, just as it is done for IAS officers.

Representatives of the Indian Telecom Services and the Central Power Engineering Services too made their submissions before the commission.

In a written submission, the association says, “The engineering fraternity has been denied their due importance in government jobs… The career progression of engineers joining the engineering services is very slow.”

It further stated, “Most of the members of the engineering services more often report to the officers of other services who are much junior in terms of year of joining. These officers recruited through engineering services also end up drawing lesser pay and perks as compared to their counter parts in civil services.”

Reportedly, the fifth pay commission had recommended that all organised group ‘A’ services — including those of the engineering services — should have a model cadre structure which should be achieved by carrying out the cadre reviews.

However, the letter states, “These recommendations were not implemented in the right spirit. It has taken 10 to 15 years to implement cadre reviews for engineering services. On the other hand, most of the civil services have cadre structure either on par or much above the model cadre structure.”

The association has demanded that promotional aspects should be made at par with the civil services, a strict batch parity be maintained in respect of promotions and director-general of CPWD be declared the ex-officio secretary to the Government of India, among others.

Quantum of pension

Pension of Govt. employees need to be 65% of last drawn as per 5th CPC study (TECS ). Correspondingly Family Pension to be 45% of last drawn.Fitment benefit exactly same as for employees. BPS urge 7th pay comm. to recommend accordingly to do justice .

Emoluments for Pension

Parity in Pension

Pension of pre & post retired SC,HC judges, CAG, Cab. Secy.& Secy. is at par.  One rank one pension has been acceded to Defence forces retirees . Others too are citizens of this Country, then why disrimination.BPS Plead for 100% parity to all Pensioners
Full and modified parity will be meaningless unless the actual grades and grade pays implemented to serving employees on revision are taken into consideration.  For some categories especially at lower and middle levels, grades higher than those actually recommended by the Commissions were implemented for employees in service.  They were not extended for modified and full parity to those who retired prior to revision in the corresponding posts on the pretext that what were implemented were improved grades and grade pays.  This resulted in invidious discrimination against and grave injustice to past retirees.  The gap in pensions due to this ever widens not only with every subsequent revision but also whenever additional installment of DR and when  additional quantum based on advanced age are  granted.
Parity, full or modified, will be meaningful and confer real benefit on past retirees only when the actual grades and grade pays implemented for serving employees are taken for this purpose.  This injustice is happening only when a higher grade or grade pay is given to a certain category after revision.    We respectfully submit that certain sections of past pensioners are not able to get justice in the  matter of full/modified parity due to the above discriminatory treatment.  A Group-B officer, who retired in III CPC scale had been brought down one scale lower w.e.f., 1.1.96 and to Rs.4200/- GP w.e.f., 1.1.2006 whereas a IV CPC Group-B officer got Rs.4600/- GP  w.e.f., 1.1.2006 and a V CPC Group-B officer got Rs.4800/- GP in revision.  This injustice has occurred to many categories of pre-2006 retirees.  We appeal to the Commission to do full justice to all past retirees in the above regard by making suitable recommendations.
Pre-2006 pensioners were given 40% fitment benefit whereas serving employees were given grade pay.  This resulted in grave imbalance between pre and post 2006 pensioners.  In order to rectify this, notional fixation has to be extended w.e.f., 1.1.2006 to pre 2006 pensioners taking 50% of corresponding grade pay into account so that they will be brought on a common platform with post 2006 pensioners and they will all get equal justice in the next revision as per VII CPC.  We urge the Commission to recommend same fitment benefit to employees as well as pensioners to avoid imbalance between past and future pensioners and also same multiplication factor for revision to one and all to ensure equal treatment.

No cut off dates

Revision of Pension by Pay comm. is to neutralize inflationary effect . Inflation affects all equally with- out cut off date. Then why cut off dates for implementation of Pay comm. recommendations?

7th CPC recommendations should apply to all pensioners without cut-off dates .All new benefits to apply to present pensioners. Pension of all should rise by equal % to ensure equality.

Minimum-Maximum Ratio

Ratio mini- max. emoluments i.e. Basic + DA+IR was down to 1:8 on 1.7.96 prior to Vth CPC implementation. 7CPC must bring it back to that level.

Gulf between highest & lowest paid

Huge gulf between lowest & highest pension need to be narrowed, should not be more than 1:8.Revise pay/pension of top person first, divide it by 8 to calculate minimum.

Any attempt to increase highest & lowest paid ratio in Govt jobs will be disastrous and against the preamble to constitution.

Additional old age pension

100 yrs of age for a pensioner is illusionary BPS requests the Hon’ble comm. to review existing dispensation & to recommend 10%upward increase in pension every 5 yrs   from 65yrs to 75yrs , 20% every 5yrs from 75- 85yrs & finally increasing pension to 100% at 90 yrs of age. As in the present scenario old age disabilities/diseases set-in right from 60 yrs of age & go on manifesting v. fast needing additional medical & caregiver expenditure.

Pension to be net of Income Tax

Purchase value of pension gets reduced day by day due to steep rise in food, medical & transport cost. Net worth of a pensioner gets considerably reduced at year end compared to the beginning of the year. To enable a pensioner in the evening of life to live with minimum comfort, BPS appeals that Pension may be exempted from Income tax.

DR Merger

BPS requests the pay comm. to recommend merger of Dearness allowance with basic pension whenever it goes 50% or beyond.
Due to inherent flaws in the method of inflation index calculation which is  based on WPI. DR  is never sufficient to afford 100% neutralization. Whenever DR rise to 50% & above, it results in considerable erosion of financial position of Pensioners.

Ex- servicemen status

Defence civilian are paid from defence budget. Are accorded Rank equivalency. BPS urge pay comm. To recommend  ex- servicemen status to retd. Defence civilians.

BSNL pensioners

BSNL pensioners are governed by Rule 137A of CCS (Pension) Rules 1972. BPS pleads that they be treated  at par with C .G. Pensioners for pension fixation.

Family pensioners other than spouse

Family pension is restricted to daughters who become divorcee or widow during the life time of  Parents. Social Structure always force a widow or divorced lady to return to parental home. In the absence of parents illiterate ladies have to feed themselves & children by doing menial jobs & living as destitutes. Removal of present restriction will help these ladies to lead honorable life. BPS appeals to hon’ble  comm. to consider the issue on humanitarian grounds & to recommend removal of this restriction .

New Pension Scheme

TO ensure social security. Amend it to guarantee minimum 50% of last drawn as pension & Family pension as per exiting pre 2004 scheme

Restoration of commuted value

Commutation is an advance sanctioned to pensioner at  specific  conditions & rate of intt.  at the time of retirement which is recoverable from  pension in regular monthly installments. Thus the recovery must stop the day total amount with interest is recovered.BPS requests that Commuted value of Pension be restored after 10yrs.

Restoration of commutation to PSU absorbees

Presently in case of pensioners other than PSU absorbees pensioners, recovery of commuted value of pension lasts 15 yrs, where as in case of PSU absorbees this recovery continues till survival which is discriminatory. In their case also fullpension should be restored, the day sanctioned amount with interest is fully recovered.

Injustice to those born onIst jan & on Ist  july

Modified FR56(a) requires every one whose date of birth is the first of month to retire from service on the afternoon of last day of preceding month on attaining superannuation age. As a result, those born on Ist of Jan loose  pay & pensionrevision benefits due to pay comm. recommendations and those born on Ist july loose benefit of one increment. They are deprived of equality of status. Hon’ble pay comm. is requested to set right the discrepancy.

Gratuity

We suggest that the gratuity may be calculated on the basis of 26 effective days as against 30 days in a month.
 The ceiling of 16.5 times should also be removed.

Health care

Healthcare is not a luxury to be in  possession of privileged few. All Govt. pensioners must be issued smart cards for cashless treatment in emergencies in any empanelled/NABH accredited hospital in the country. BPS requests the Honourable commission to recommend accordingly .

Quality healthcare

To ensure quality healthcare to pensioners . Periodically upgrade CGHS rates, to keep these compatible to market rates. Exercise rate & quality control on Govt. empanelled  hospitals.

Hospital Regulatory authority

Constitute hospital regulatory authority to monitor quality & rates of empanelled & NABH /NABL  accredited hospitals / Labs to ensure quality healthcare at affordable rates.

Fixed Medical allowance

As is recorded in Para 5 of the minutes of Committee of Secretaries (COS) held on 15.04.2010. OPD cost per CGHS card holder was Rs1369/ PM in 2007-8. With inflation, it is well over Rs 2500/PM now.EPFO baneficiaries already getting RS 2000/PM FMA wef June.013. Hon’ble comm. is requested to recomend Rs 2500/FMA w/o distance restriction, net of Income Tax and  allowing DR on it.

Grievance redressal

There should be an effective redressal mechanism with a strict Time line & punitive clause for violation of time line. Any court judgement involving a common policy matter of Pay/Pension should be extended automatically to similarly placed employees/Pensioners without driving every affected person  to court of Law.
BPS, therefore, appeal to Hon’ble Comm. to recommend accordingly.

Immediate relief

Pending submission of commission’s report & implementation of its recommendations . As an immediate measure to partially  mitigate sufferings of pensioners, BPS appeal to the Hon’ble comm. to immediately recommend merger of 50% DR with basic pension & an interim relief of 20% of existing pension.

 

General

  • Federations of C.G. Pensioners’ associations be    granted recognition by Government.
  • Pensioners’ representatives should be included in various Committees & Forums wherein issues relating to pensioners’ are discussed & decided.
  • SCOVA may be upgraded to JCM level.
  • Scope of Pension Adalats be widened to include Genl.Grievances& Pensioners associations may be permitted to present pensioners cases in Pension Adalats.

7th Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

Seventh Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

MEENA AGARWAL
SECRETARY

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION

7CPC/99/RR/2014/1

Dated: 8th September, 2014

Dear

The 7th Central Pay Commission has been receiving a number of memoranda, representations from associations/federations as well as individual cadres on pay and related issues. As part of its working, the Commission is also hearing various groups of employees both in Delhi and during its visits outside Delhi.

2. One of the major issues raised before the Commission centres on the subject of parity. One aspect of parity manifests in how posts of a similar nature are placed. Certain cadres/category of employees have, in their deposition before the Commission, stated that there are cases when identical or similarly placed cadres/categories of employees in different Ministries/Departments are placed differentially in terms of pay and promotional prospects.

3. With a view to examining and addressing this aspect of parity amongst apparently similarly placed cadres/posts, the Commission has devised a template to be filled in for posts being administered by your Department. The template seeks to elicit information that would be readily available in the Recruitment Rules for the concerned post(s)/cadres. In case your Department only operates posts involving common cadres like the Central Secretariat Service (CSS), Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS), Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS), a NIL report may kindly be furnished to the Commission.

4. Since the Work of the Commission is time bound may I request that information as sought is furnished by 25 September 2014. Perhaps a copy of the RRs themselves could be sent as advance information.

Yours sincerely,
sd/-
(Meena Agarwal)
