Is it possible to Increase the 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor?

Is it possible to Increase the 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor?

7th-CPC-Minimum-Pay

7th CPC Minimum Pay – Don’t give false hope and drag the issues till next Pay Commission

Is it really possible to Increase the Minimum Pay and Improve the Fitment Factor even 18 Months after the resolution for Implementation of 7th CPC Recommendation issued ?

What is that NCJCM Staff Side really wanted to convey to the Central Government Employees by posting such letters regarding Increasing of Minimum Pay and Improving of Fitment formula.

NCJCM Staff Side is the only hope and Final Destination for Central Government staffs to ask to settle their issues under negotiated settlement. But it seems that the Staff Side is not using this forum effectively to resolve the issues pertaining to the Central Government Employees.

The issues of HRA and Minimum pay are perfect examples of the failure of NCJCM Staff Side.

The central Government employees wouldn’t have faced such huge loss in payment of HRA if the same rate is implemented with effect from the date of Notification i.e 25.7.2016

When the Central Government was not even ready to reinstate the HRA at Sixth CPC rates, how come one expect that the Government will increase the Minimum Pay to Rs. 21000 or fitment factor from 2.57 to 3. Don’t give false hope and drag the issues till next Pay Commission.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Upgradation of the posts of Sr. SO (A/cs)/Sr. TIA/Sr. ISA in the Railways as recommended by 7 CPC – clearance of DoP&T-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 15/2013.

Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (RBE No. 93/2016) to the GMs etc.

NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 12/09/2016 & 15/11/2016 & 26/11/2016 addressed to Board.

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the correspondence cited under reference. Federation also invites Board’s attention to DoP&T’s ID Note No. 1198678/18- Estt/11405 dated 2nd February 2017 to the Ministry of Railways (EDPC-II).

In this connection, Federation re-iterates that the Ministry of Finance vide resolution dated 25th July 2016 had referred the 7th CPC specific recommendation (Para No. 11.40.83, 11.40.124 of. 7th CPC) to DoP&T for examination. Sadly, the DoP&T has given reply stating that the revision of pay scales and pay structure does not come under the administrative domain of DoP&T and has advised the Railway Ministry to consult Department of Expenditure of Ministry of Finance for the purpose.

NFIR also vide letter dated 26/11/2016 had sought copies of the references made by the Railway Ministry on the subject but unfortunately till date the copies have not been made available. Federation also desires to know the Board’s initiative for ensuring implementation of 7th CPC recommendation.

NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to kindly make available copies of the references made to DoP&T/MoF. The Federation further requests that appropriate communication may be sent to the DoP&T/MoF seeking approval for implementation of 7th CPC recommendation relating to upgradation of CMA, CMS, ACM & SSO (Accounts).

7th Pay Commission: As Budget session starts tomorrow, all eyes on Arun Jaitley to announce hike in allowances

7th Pay Commission: As Budget session starts tomorrow, all eyes on Arun Jaitley to announce hike in allowances

The Committee on Allowances has already submitted its report to the Finance Ministry in which it has reviewed the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission on allowances.

With the second part of the Budget session in Parliament starting on Thursday, all eyes are on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who may just announce a hike in allowances for Central government employees.

The Committee on Allowances has already submitted its report to the Finance Ministry in which it has reviewed the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission on allowances.

The Committee under Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa is believed to have suggested that the house rent allowance be kept as it is and not brought down as recommended by the Seventh Pay Commission.
The pay hike under the Seventh Pay Commission has been the lowest in the last 70 years and a decrease in allowances is unlikely to go down well with nearly 50 lakh government employees.

THE DEVELOPMENTS IN THE SEVENTH PAY COMMISSION STORY:

  • With Uttar Pradesh and Manipur voting in the final phase today, the model code of conduct will be lifted by the end of the day. The Narendra Modi government, which could not make any major announcements during the poll season, is expected to speak on the allowances soon.
  • The second part of the Budget session will continue for a month till April 12, and it is widely believed that Arun Jaitley can make an announcement during the session, and employees may start getting revised allowances from the new fiscal in April.
  • On allowances, this pay commission has not had the best news for government employees with the panel recommending axing 53 of the 196 allowances and merging a few others.
  • Following protests by employees, the government formed a committee under Ashok Lavasa to look into the recommendations. The pay commission had suggested bringing down the house rent allowance (HRA) to 24 per cent from 30 per cent of basic pay for metros.
  • While the Committee on Allowances decided against a slash in HRA, reports suggest that it has agreed with Seventh Pay Commission’s recommendation on no hike in transport allowance.
  • To add to the growing resentment among employees, the dearness allowance (DA) is likely to be hiked by just 2 per cent this year. “The dearness allowance as per the agreed formula by the Centre works out to be 2 per cent which would be effective from January 1, 2017,” Confederation of Central Government Employees President K K N Kutty said.
  • Representatives of employees unions are not happy with the hike and said it is not in sync with price rise and inflation. According to some reports, employees union are planning to protest against the “meagre” hike in DA.

Central Government Employees are not yet given the full Benefit of 7th CPC Recommendation

Central Government Employees are not yet given the full Benefit of 7th CPC Recommendation

The actual increase on account of implementation of 7th CPC recommendation is still not fully available to Central govt Staffs.

The recommendation of 7th Pay Commission has been implemented with effect from 1.1.2016 and the revised salary is being paid from this effective date. The Central Government, after implementing the Pay Panel report, hasn’t announce any decision about Allowances even after 12 months, created frustration among central government employees.

The Pay Commission is constituted once in Ten Years to revise the Pay and Allowances and Pension for Govt Servants and Pensioners. Accordingly, the 7th Pay Commission was formed and it submitted its report to the Government on 19-11-2015. The Government Accepted the Report without any major changes and announced on 29.6.2016 that it would be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016.

Since the increase in salary which is paid from 1.1.2016 was very less, it has demolished the expectations of CG Staffs.

Very important aspect in revising Pay and Allowance is House Rent Allowance. The rates of HRA is determined based on the Population of the Cities in which the Govt Servants are working. Accordingly, 10,20 and 30% of Basic Pay is paid as HRA in Sixth CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to revise it as 8%, 16% and 24%.

The Unions and Federations demanded to increase the HRA rates or at least to restore the Sixth CPC rates. Hence the Government has announced that a committee would be constituted to examine the Allowances, until then all the Allowances would be paid in Sixth CPC rates.  As a result of this, HRA is being paid in old rates (Sixth CPC ) along with revised 7th CPC Basic Pay to CG Staffs. Now the CG Staffs have realized that very purpose of forming a high-level committee is not for resolving the issues but it is a delaying tactics.

Consequent to Pay Revision, the major increase in Salary is used to come from HRA only. Though one year is completed after the implementation of 7th CPC recommendation, the Government is delaying to take the decision over allowances. Due to this, the CG staffs are losing monitory benefits considerably

For example ..
The increase in Pay and HRA of a Government servant who is drawing Rs.10000 in pre revised scale is given below …

6th CPC
Basic Pay DA (125%) BP + DA 10% HRA 20% HRA 30% HRA
10000 12500 22500 1000 2000 3000
 7th CPC  
Basic Pay DA (0%) BP + DA 10% HRA 20% HRA 30% HRA
25700 0 25700 2570 5140 7710
 Hike
3200 1570 3140 4710

If the Monthly salary of Government servant with 10Years of service is Rs.22500, now the Actual increase of his salary is only Rs. 3200. Through this example it is quite obvious that, one can get the real increase in salary only after the HRA is paid in 7th CPC revised rates.

7th CPC recommendation on Disability Pension of Ex-Servicemen

Government vide Notification dated 30th September 2016 have issued detailed recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission relating to pensionary benefits of Defence Forces Personnel and the decisions taken thereon by the Government. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommended the following on disability pension:-

Havildar / Equivalents 5  And  below 12000
Naik / Equivalents
Sepoy / Equivalents

The above recommendation has been accepted with the approval of the Cabinet and Resolution dated 30.09.2016 issued accordingly.

The 6th CPC dispensation of the calculation of disability element on percentage basis, however, continues for civil side which has resulted in an anomalous situation. The issue has accordingly been referred to the Anomaly Committee.

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

7th CPC Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula: Gist of Meeting held on 25.10.2016 about Allowances, 7th CPC to Autonomous Bodies, GDS Bonus and other issues

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.

New Delhi – 110001

Subject : Extension of wage revision benefits arising from 7th CPC recommendation to employees of autonomous bodies set up by GOI- Reg.
Dear Sir,
The autonomous bodies set up by GOI normally follow the central pattern of Pay Scales and service conditions. The Ministry of Finance is to issue the requisite coders as and when pay commission recommendations are accepted and implemented in so far as Central Government Employees are concerned to extend the said benefit to employees of autonomous bodies. To give effect to 6th CPC recommendations, orders were issued on 30.09.2008. So far no order has been issued by the Govt extending the 7th CPC benefit to employees of autonomous bodies. We request that the same may please be expedited.
In respect of employees who are on permanent deputation to such autonomous bodies, the Revised Pay Rules, 2016 notified as GSR 721 (E) dated 25.07.2016 is applicable. However. it has been represented to us that some of the autonomous Bodies have not extended the benefit to the employees on deputation, probably due to an incorrect understanding of the issue.
We request that the autonomous bodies may be advised to implement the notification in the ease of employees/officers on deputation to autonomous organization without waiting for a formal order from the Ministry of Finance.
Thanking You,

7th CPC recommendation Pay determination in the case of Pre-2016 pensioners Option No. I Examination of feasibility

NC-JCM-2016/7th CPC (Pension)

October 17, 2016

The Secretary,
Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare,
Govt. of India,
Sardar Patel Bhawan, New Delhi.

Dear Sir,
Sub: 7th CPC recommendation. Pay determination in the case of Pre 2016 pensioners. Option No. I Examination of feasibility.

 

Ref: Minutes of the meeting of the Committee in F.No.38/37/2016 P&PW(A) Dated 10th October, 2016

 

We refer to the discussions held On 6.10.2016 in matter of feasibility Of acting upon the 7thy CPC recommendations (Option No. I) in the matter of pension computation and the minutes circulated under cover of the letter cited. At the outset, we would like to slate that the members of the Staff Side, Who were associated with the discussions, gained an impression that the Pension Department would not like to implement the recommendation of the 7th CPC concerning Option No.1 provided to the pensioners in determination or the revised pension. As has been pointed out by us during the discussions on 6t October, the Government has accepted the said recommendation with a rider of its feasibility of implementation. The attempt, therefore, must be to explore the and means of implementing the said recommendation, which benefits a large number of retired personnel, especially those retired prior to 1996. It is, therefore. highly doubtful how any alternate proposal in replacement of the accepted recommendation would be tenable.

We have the matter considered by various Pensioners Associations as also the Federations of the Serving employees. We enumerate here under the feed back we have received:

Even according to the exercise carried out by the Pension department, only in of the cases, the service Books are reported to have been available. Conversely it means that in 82% of the cases the records are available to operationalize Option No.1. Besides, we find that on the basis of a random scrutiny that only 40% (Percentage varies from Department to Department depending upon the then prevailing career prospects) generally will opt to have pension fixation under the provisions of option No.I. It Will work out to hardly 7% of the cases, where Service Books might not be available. As has been pointed out in the last meeting Gradation/Seniority list is maintained for each Cadre by the Concerned Department, where the date of promotion to the cadre inter alia is indicated. The said gradation list will reveal many other details viz the date or birth, dale of entry into government service, date of promotion to the cadre, whether eligible for next promotion, due or superannuation etc. This apart there are other documents maintained by the Department, which will come in handy for verification of the clam, viz, the pay bills. Establishment files containing promotion orders etc. In other words it is possible to the claim of my individual pensioner or family and take appropriate decision. In other words, there is no infeasibility question at all. It was also pointed out by many organisations that retention period of Service Books in all major Departments or the Government of India is 5 years after the death of the Pensioner/Family Pensioner and not 3 years after retirement as indicated by the Official side at the meeting. This apart, it may also he noted that the option has to be exercised by the concerned individual pensioner and he has to make a formal application to the concerned authorities. He is bound to substantiate his claim with documentary proof, whatever that is available with him.

As was pointed out by some of us in the last meeting, the implementation of an accepted recommendation on the specious plea of infeasibility will pave way for plethora of litigation. Apart from the administrative difficulties, the Pension Department would be saddled With if such litigation arise, it would be sad and cruel on the part of the Government to compel the pensioners to bear huge financial burden to pursue their case before the courts of law.

In view of this the Staff side is of the firm view that the Government issue orders for implementation of Option No.I as there is no room for stating that recommendation is impossible to be implemented for those who are benefited by the said option.

We are aware that certain anomalies are bound to arise on implementation of option No.I. Anomalies have arisen in the past too. What is needed is to examine those anomalies and ensure that those are genuinely addressed.

It may be noted that even under the present dispensation, no two Government servants are entitled for the same pension despite they being retired on from the same grade on the same day. The promotion in lower cadres especially Group B, C and D had been and between a decade back in many departments and continues to be the situation in certain organisations or the Government of India. The vacancy based promotion system, one must admit, operates in a fortuitous manner. For no fault of the individual employee, he/she may retire without getting a whereas his colleague due to sheer luck might get the promotion at the fag end of the career.

The case of those employees retired prior to the advent of ACP or MACP is really pathetic. That had to remain in certain departments in the same cadres for years together. They are in receipt of a paltry amount of pension though there is nothing distinguishable in their service careers for such deprivation. To deny them the benefit provided by the 7th CPC on the specious plea that the relevant records are not available with the Government may not only be unreasonable but also will not stand the test of judicial scrutiny.

As have stated in the meeting, the alternative suggestion put forth by the official side is a welcome feature , for it might be step in the right direction to remove the anomaly pointed out by the official side when Option No-I is implemented and will benefit those pensioners who got their promotion the end of their career. It is also likely to bring about certain extent of parity, if not full, between the old and the pensioners. However it cannot be in replacement of the recommendation in respect or Option No.1 made by the 7th CPC. The alternate suggestion of the Pension Department may be offered as another option to the pensioners who are not benefited either by Option No.1 or 2 recommended by the 7th CPC. Such an option will eliminate to a great extent the anomalies that might arise from the implementation of option No.1.

 

In fine, we request that:

 

The Pensioners/family pensioners may be allowed to choose any one of the following three options;

 

(a) 2.57 time of the pension if that is beneficial.

(b) Option No.1. Recommended by the 7th CPC, if that is beneficial for them.

(c) To determine the Pension on the basis of the suggestion placed by the Pension Department on 

6.10.2016 i.e. extension of the benefit of pension determination recommended by the 5th CPC (viz. arriving at notional pay in the 7th CPC by applying formula for pay revision for serving employees in each Pay Commission and consequent pension fixation) to all pre 2016 Pensioners/family pensioners, if that becomes beneficial to them.

 

Yours Faithfully,

Not Revising HRA as per 7th CPC Recommendation is a big disappointment

Not Revising HRA as per 7th CPC Recommendation is a big disappointment…!

7th Pay Commission submitted its Recommendation in November 2016. House Rent Allowance is one of the very important recommendation expected by CG Employees among the most expected recommendations.

A Govt servant is spending one third of his salary for paying House Rent. Considering these expenses of CG Employees those who are living in big cities, Sixth CPC has recommended 10, 20 and 30% of the Basic pay as HRA. Accordingly, HRA has been paid for the past Eight Years and the Federation Demanded to increase this rates in 7th Pay Commission.

But the Commission in its recommendation reduced these rates to 8,16 and 24%. Though it has been justified with various reasons by 7th CPC, it disappointed the CG employees. Since CG Employees felt that only these reduced rates will be paid for next ten years, their demand to restore the old rates started gaining big support. As a result of this, all the Staff associations and Federations pressurized the Government to increase the rate of HRA and it was included in charter of 7th CPC demands.

Already the Government had wasted six months in the name of Empowered Committee to examine the 7th CPC Recommendations. Until now the report of this committee is not published.

The Cabinet gave its approval for the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations on 29th June 2016. It has been stated in that report that, a committee headed by Secretary, Finance will be Constituted to examine the Allowances and committee is given four-month time to submit its report. Till then the HRA will be paid as per Sixth CPC rates.

Meanwhile, Group of Ministers invited NJCA for a meeting to with draw the Indefinite Strike proposed to commence from 11th July, In that meeting, Increasing the percentage of HRA also discussed. The Government agreed to form a committee to examine the Allowances. It has been described as Government indirectly agreed to increase the HRA.

Implementation of 7th CPC recommendation was ensured by Gazette Notification issued on 25th July 2016. But there was no Change in the recommendation of HRA.

Till now the Central Government employees are wondering that why the Committee has been given four Months’ Time to examine the HRA. As well as the decision to continue the HRA in Sixth CPC is considered as big disappointment.

HRA plays a Major Role in pay hike. So the CG Staff feel that HRA would have been paid in Revised rates from this month onwards. Thereafter paying arrears for the Increased amount in HRA will become inevitable. Because there is no assurance that Revised rates of HRA will be given retrospective effect.

Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme

Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme

 

 

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC(Imp)/2016/MoF

Dated : 02/08/2016

The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rastraapati Bhavan Annexie,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Government’s acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation – Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme – reg.

 

NFIR invites kind attention of the Government to the acceptance of 7th CPC recommendations circulated by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) vide Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July 2016, the Annexure II of which contains the decision in relation to Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) as given below:-

  • “While the MACP has been continued to be administered at the intervals of 10,20 & 30 years of service to an employee as was in vogue, the benchmark for performance appraisal under the MACPS has been enhanced from “good” to “very good”.
  • It has also been decided by the Government to withhold annual increments in the case of those employees who are unable to meet the benchmark for MACP or on regular promotion within first 20 years of the service of the employee”.

In this connection, NFIR conveys that the Government has not consulted JCM (Staff Side) before taking decision as above although this being one of the issues contained in the Charter of demands, seeking discussion. The decision has caused disappointment among Railway employees and as well Central Government employees. Upgrading the bench mark from “good” to “very good” for granting financial upgradation under MACPS would provide unfettered powers to the superiors to victimize and give scope to favour the liked staff on “pick” and “choose” basis. The decision for withholding annual increments on the pretext that employees are unable to meet the bench mark for MACP or regular promotion within first 20 years of service would not only demoralize the staff but also give handle for willful harassment and victimization by higher Officials.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Cabinet Secretary who is also the Chairman of the JCM, to kindly hold meeting with the Staff Side representatives for resolving the issues amicably through discussions.

Yours sincerely

7th Pay Commission: NJCA Secretary writes to Cabinet for Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme

Shiva Gopal Misra

National Council (Staff Side)
Joint Consultative Machinery
For Central Government Employees

No.NC/JCM/7th CPC/2016

Dated: 28th July 2016

The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashtrapati Bhawan Annexie,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

We wish to draw your kind attention towards the decision taken by the government on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, especially with regard to Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS).

The government has accepted one of the adverse recommendations of the 7th CPC without holding any consultation with the Staff Side. The recommendation of the 7th CPC regarding benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation under MACPS, to be enhanced from “Good” to “Very Good”, has been accepted by the government without considering its implication on the morale of the Central Government Employees. Similarly, another adverse recommendation of the 7th CPC for withholding of Annual Increment in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark, either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service has also been accepted by the government.

In our “Charter of Demands”, submitted to the Government of India on 9th February, 2016 on behalf of Staff Side, National  Council (JCM), we have categorically demanded that, the MACP should be treated as financial upgradation without any grading stipulation and the MACP should be provided on the basis of promotional cadre hierarchy of the concerned department. The Staff Side has demanded to reject the efficiency stipulation recommended by the 7th CPC. However, this issue was not discussed with the Staff Side, National Council(JCM) by the government before taking a decision on this significant issue as well as recommendation of the 7th CPC for withholding of annual increment in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark, either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

You will appreciate that, in the government set-up it will be very difficult to assess the performance and talent of each and every employee since the government functions on a collective basis. Moreover, this decision of the government, if implemented, will result in favouritism and also victimization. This will also result in serious unrest at the workplace, which will affect the morale of the employees and will create division amongst the employees, which will ultimately reflect on the performance and productivity of each organization.

Therefore, we are of the firm opinion that, the government should reconsider their decision on the above issues and we request you to kindly withdraw the same and a discussion in this regard may be held with the Staff Side at the earliest.

With Kind Regards!
Sincerely yours,

(SHIVA GOPAL MISHRA)
Secretary(Staff Side)

7th CPC Recommendation on CGEGIS is not accepted by Government

7th CPC Recommendation on CGEGIS is not accepted by Government

7th CPC Recommendation on CGEGIS is not accepted by Govt and the old scheme and rates continues

The 7th Pay Commission has recommended the following rates for Central government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) . The subscription amount has been increased considerably to increase the Insurance amount .

Level of Employee Monthly Deduction (Rs.) Insurance Amount (Rs.)
10 and above 5000 50,00,000
6 to 9 2500 25,00,000
1 to 5 1500 15,00,000

This has been objected by NCJCM in its memorandum. The demanded to reduce the monthly deduction as it is much higher than the Premium rates available for Term life Insurance in Open Market. The Central Government accepted this demand and rejected this recommendation and asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.

The Press release issued by the Central Government says,

” The Cabinet also decided not to accept the steep hike in monthly contribution towards Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) recommended by the Commission. The existing rates of monthly contribution will continue. This will increase the take home salary of employees at lower levels by Rs. 1470. However, considering the need for social security of employees, the Cabinet has asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.”

7th Central Pay Commission recommendations- Submission to the empowered Committee Secretaries – BPS

7th Central Pay Commission recommendations- Submission to the empowered Committee Secretaries – BPS

BPS-7th-pay-commission

BHARAT PENSIONERS’ SAMAJ

No SG/BPS/CPC/16/11

Dated 02.06.2016

To
Shri Pradeep Kumar Sinha,
Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashtrapathi Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi-110001.

Respected Sir,

Sub: VII Central Pay Commission recommendations-
Submission to the empowered Committee Secretaries- reg.

1. Bharat Pensioners Samaj(BPS) Federation of pensioners’ associations, a conglomerate of over 628 pensioners’ organizations as an accredited Federation under the Government of India, had appealed to the Secretary, Ministry of personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, on 16.2.2016 during the meeting on Aadhar seeding to hold a meeting of Pensioners Associations to discuss 7th CPS pension related recommendations, though he had agreed to hold such a meeting but it did not materialize.

2. Now BPS has come to know through NJCA News letter dated 27.5.2016 issued after their meeting with you on 26.5.2016that the Department of Pension is opposed to the first option recommended by the 7th CPC to bring about the parity with the past pensioners, as they consider it to be infeasible and impracticable (due to the non-availability of the requisite records)

3. It is hard to believe, how a department meant for the welfare of pensioners which helped pensioners to get better deal in earlier pay commissions could arrive at such a damaging and misleading decision without even consulting the stake holders.

4. Sir, Service record is a permanent one and if it to be destroyed, proper permission from the Competent Authority is to be obtained. In any case, service record of pensioners can always be reconstructed taking the details from various sources available with the department and the material collected from the Pensioner. This has been done in the past while implementing parity enunciated by fifth CPC and even while implementing modified parity of 6th CPC. It is also being done now implementing OROP. In this regard Your kind attention is also drawn to recent Bombay High court Nagpur judgement dated 09.03.2015 in case of Smt. Saija v. General Manager, Central Railway O.A.No. 2131 of 2011 (Bombay Bench at Nagpur)

Undersigned in the capacity of Secy. Genl ‘Bharat Pensioners Samaj’ request you to takean independent decision in view of submission in Para 4 above to save pensioners/family pensioners from unprecedented permanent damage by a department meant for their welfare.

Thanking you in anticipation

With regards
Yours faithfully,

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees to get salary hike from next month

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees to get salary hike from next month

New Delhi: The long wait for implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendation will soon come to an end.

As per media reports, the new increased pay scale for all central government employees will be given from next month.

Meanwhile, the group of secretaries headed by Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha is all set to meet on June 11 to give final shape to the changes on 7th Pay Commission recommendation.

Government in January set up a high-powered panel headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries will function as a Screening Committee to process the recommendations with regard to all relevant factors of the Commission in an expeditious detailed and holistic fashion.

The government had earlier stated that implementation of new pay scales recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore, or 0.7 percent of GDP, on the exchequer in 2016-17.
