OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations -amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments OM No AB.14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR) dated 24/03/2009 regarding amendment of Service Rules/ Recruitment Rules in pursuance of Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations. The revised pay structure recommended by 6th CPC and approved by the Government included a number of ‘merged grades’ with a common Pay Band and Grade Pay.

2. In order to regulate the service rendered in the pre-revised scale where there have been merger of more than one grade into one with a single grade pay, it was advised that a Note to the following effect may be inserted under relevant columns in the Schedule of RRs and under relevant provisions in Service Rules.

“Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission. For purposes of appointment on deputation/ absorption basis, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement grade without any upgradation.”

3. It has been observed that after implementation of 7th CPC there are only a few cases of merger/upgradation of pay scale. However in cases where merger/ upgradation of pay is recommended in the 7th CPC and the same has been accepted, there is a need to provide a Note on similar lines as above with relevant changes i.e. the date 1.1.2006 needs to be replaced with 1.1.2016 and “6th CPC” is to be replaced with “7th CPC”. In other cases the Note as referred above need not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs where no merger/ upgradation are involved as per 7th CPC recommendations.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations – revision of pay scales – amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM of even number dated 9th August, 2016 regarding amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules by replacing the existing Pay Band and Grade Pay with the corresponding Level in the Pay Matrix in the revised pay structure recommended by the Seventh CPC and notified in the CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

2. Subsequently, this Department held meetings in October/November, 2016 with the administrative Ministries/Departments to review the progress in the implementation of the OM. An important suggestion made in the meetings was with respect to facilitating the process of consultation with the Legislative Department for drafting notification for amendment of RRs in accordance with OM dated 9th August, 2016 and its Hindi translation so as to expedite the issue of notification. In this regard, this Department in consultation with Legislative Department has prepared a model notification in English and Hindi for use of the Administrative
Ministries/Departments. These are annexed at Annexure I and Annexure II.

3. Another issue which came up in the meeting is with respect to retention of standard Note under Co1.11 incorporated in the Schedule of the RRs regarding the regulation of service rendered prior to implementation of 6 thCPC, in those cases where the issue of upgradation/merger of the posts were involved. The relevant Note reads as follows:

“Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission”

and/or

“Note: For purposes of appointment on deputation/ absorption basis, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement grade without any upgradation.”

4. After the implementation of 7 th CPC, there are only a few cases of  merger/upgradation of pay scale. It has been decided in consultation with UPSC that in cases where merger/upgradation of pay are not involved in the recommendations of the 7th CPC, the Note as referred above is not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs. The guidelines in this regard have also been separately issued. The model notification includes a provision for deletion of the Note.

5. The Ministries/Departments are requested to finalise draft notification for amendment of the SRs/RRs in line with the model notification and thereafter, refer the same to the Legislative Department for vetting. The Legislative Department may dispose of references received from the Ministries/Departments within two weeks. Any amendment which is beyond the scope of the model rules will be finalized in usual process i.e. consultation with DoPT, UPSC and Legislative Department.

6. This Department is monitoring the implementation of the OM dated 09.08.2016. All Ministries / Departments are therefore requested to furnish information as per Annexure-III at the earliest.

7th Pay Commission: Will BJP pay the price for not implementing 7CPC before Assembly polls?

7th Pay Commission: Will BJP pay the price for not implementing 7CPC before Assembly polls?

The state governments, especially those ruled by opposition parties, used the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as an effective tool to woo voters ahead of Assembly polls.

New Delhi, Jan 16: Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government approved the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission in June last year. It’s been six months and the Modi government is yet implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. However the state governments, especially those ruled by opposition parties, used the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as an effective tool to woo voters ahead of Assembly polls. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his Uttarakhand counterpart Harish Rawat outsmarted the Modi government on implementation of the 7th Pay Commission ahead of Assembly elections in their states. Will the BJP pay the price for not implementing the 7th Pay Commission before Assembly polls?

The Assembly Elections will be held in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur in the first quarter of the year. Of the five states, three – Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa – have announced they will implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. While Uttar Pradesh is governed by Samajwadi Party, Uttarakhand in under Congress rule. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power in Goa.

When the demonetisation drive of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was making headlines in December last year, Chief Minister Harish Rawat led Uttarakhand government announced it will implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. Uttarakhand was the first to implement the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations. With the populist announcement, Harish Rawat hopes to fight anti-incumbency in the state.

Similarly, Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav announced implementation of the 7th Pay Commission on December 13 last year, months before the crucial Assembly polls. The implementation of the 7th Pay Commission is likely to benefit more than 21 lakh state government employees, teachers and pensioners. The move is being seen by many as an attempt to offer sops to the government employees ahead of the crucial state assembly polls in 2017.

Goa, where the ruling BJP is fighting with Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, also announced it will implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations before the model code of conduct came into force on January 4.

With pay hike decision under the 7th Pay Commission, the parties holding power in poll-bound states are trying to influence about 28 lakh employees and pensioners, and their dependents during the upcoming polls. On the other hand, the Modi government lost this battle politically as the model code of has come into force. It means the Modi government cannot announce the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission before March 8, by when the assembly polls would be over and budget presented.

7th Pay Commission: Good news for autonomous bodies as government may give them salary hike, but with conditions

7th Pay Commission: Good news for autonomous bodies as government may give them salary hike, but with conditions

The finance ministry has also made arrangements for those autonomous body employees who do not meet these criteria to get salaries as per the revised pay scale.

The Ministry of Finance has come up with some good news for employees of autonomous bodies that are present under various departments and ministries of the Central government: These workers will get benefits of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) although there is a string of conditions attached to the implementation.

These employees have expressed frustration in the past saying their wages have not been increased despite repeated assurances since the middle of last year. They were also disappointed over the news that their dues could get delayed further due to various reasons.

Now, the Ministry of Finance has said in a memorandum that the employees of these autonomous bodies – which are expected to be “financially self-sufficient” so as not to burdent the state exchequer – may get a revised pay scale as per the part of their salaries that deals with allowances, including dearness, house-rent and transport.

According to the ministry’s memorandum, the allowances of these employees can be increased in correlation with the pay panel recommendations only on the following three conditions:

1. The “conditions of service” of employees of an autonomous body, in particular those that pertain to work hours and over-time payment, are same as to those of the Central government employees.

2. The revised pay scale will also apply to those who opt for the aforementioned “conditions of service.”

3. The pension and provident fund deductions of these employees will happen on the basis of their revised pay structure.

Payments on other components of the salary will be revised to the CPC recommendations, said the memorandum. For other autonomous body enmployees

For employees of autonomous bodies, the working conditions of which do not match those of Central government employees, the ministry has proposed setting up of a group of officers for each autonomous body – with the departmental or ministerial financial advisor acting as the finance ministry’s representative – to determine whether and how much of an increase these employees will get. Of course, their recommendations will be implemented only after the ministry approves it.

The memorandum added: “The Central government has not taken any decision so far in regard to various allowances based on the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Central government employees and, therefore, until further orders the existing allowances in the autonomous organisations shall continue to be admissible as per the existing terms and conditions, irrespective of the revised pay scales having been adopted.”

7th Pay Commission Pay Revision for Autonomous bodies – Finmin Orders

7th Pay Commission Pay Revision for Autonomous bodies – Finmin Orders

AUTONOMOUS BODY’S PAY REVISION ORDERS ISSUED

Pay revision of employees of Quasi-Government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up by and funded/controlled by the Central Government – Guidelines

F.No.1/1/2016-E.III(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

New Delhi, 13th January, 2017

Office Memorandum

Subject: Pay revision of employees of Quasi-Government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up by and funded/controlled by the Central Government – Guidelines

The employees working in the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, are not Central Government employees and, therefore, the benefits implemented by Central Government in respect of Central Government employees as part of their service conditions, are not directly applicable to the employees working in such autonomous organizations. The application of such benefits as given to Central Government employees in respect of employees of such autonomous organizations as well as the manner and conditions governing such application, including sharing of the additional financial implications arising thereon, requires specific approval of the Central Government. The autonomous organizations are expected to manage their affairs in such a fashion that their dependence on Central Government for financial support to meet the extra financial implications is minimal, as such autonomous organizations are expected to be financially Self-sufficient So as not to cause any extra burden on the Central Exchequer.

2. In the above background, the question of extension of the revised pay scales in terms of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 as notified on 25.7.2016 in respect of Central Government employees based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, to the employees of the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies, etc., Set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, where pattern of emolument structure, i.e. pay scales and allowances, in particular Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance, are identical to those in case of the Central Government employees, has been considered by the Government and it has been decided that the revised pay scales as per the Pay Matrix, as contained in Part-A of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 as well as the principle of pay fixation as contained in the said rules, may be extended to the employees of such organizations, subject to the following stipulations:-

(i) The conditions of service of employees of these organizations, especially those relating to hours of work, payment of OTA etc. are exactly Similar to those in Case of the Central Government employees.

(ii) The revised pay structure shall be admissible to those employees who opt for the same in accordance with the extant Rules.

(iii) Deductions on account of Provident Fund, Contributory Provident Fund or National Pension System, as may be applicable, will have to be made on the basis of the revised pay w.e.f. the date an employee opts to elect the revised pay structure.

3. The revised pay scales contained in Parts B & part C of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, shall not be automatically applicable to the employees Of Autonomous Organizations. The concerned Administrative Ministry shall consider such cases keeping in view whether these pay scales are justified for the category of staff of Autonomous Organizations based on functional considerations, recruitment qualifications, as well as the applicable pre-revised pay scales. Based on such an examination by the concerned Administrative Ministry, appropriate proposals, if justified, would be submitted to the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, through their Integrated Finance.

4. In case of those categories of employees whose pattern of emoluments structure, i.e., pay scales and allowances and conditions of service are not similar to those of the Central Government employees, a separate ‘Group of Officers’ in respect of each of the Autonomous Bodies may be constituted in the respective Ministry/Department. The Financial Adviser of the respective Ministry/Department will represent the Ministry of Finance on this Group. The Group would examine the proposals for revision of pay scales etc. taking into account the views, if any, expressed by the Staff representatives of the concerned organizations. It would be necessary to ensure that the final package of benefits proposed to be extended to the employees of these Autonomous Organizations etc. is not more beneficial than that admissible to the corresponding categories of the Central Government employees. The final package recommended by the ‘Group of Officers’ will require the concurrence of the Ministry of Finance.

5. In regard to the additional financial impact arising out of the implementation of the revised pay Scales, as provided above, the following parameters shall be kept in view:-

(i) In respect of those Autonomous Organizations, which have not been depending upon the Government Grants for their operations or for meeting the cost of salary, including those autonomous organisations which are in a position to meet the additional financial impact from their Own internal resources, the additional financial impact shall be met by the concerned autonomous organizations without any financial support whatsoever from the Government, No financial Support shall be given by the Central Government in Such cases.

(ii) In respect of the other Autonomous Organizations. which are not in a position to meet the additional financial impact, either fully or partly, on account Of the implementation of the revised pay scales, the concerned autonomous organization will take up the proposals with the Advisers of the respective Administrative Financial Ministry/Department, bringing out the extent to which the additional cost could be met internally, the shortfall to be made up and the reasons for the shortfall. While giving concurrence to the implementation of the revised pay scales, the Financial Advisers shall ensure that the extent of Government support is kept at the minimum, and in no case the Government support shall be more than 70% (seventy percent) of the additional financial impact.

(iii) In respect of Autonomous organisations set up under a specific Act of Parliament, not generating adequate internal resources to meet the additional financial impact, the extent of Government support may be more than 70% of the additional impact, provided in the opinion of the concerned Financial Adviser the nature of functions and the fund position of the organisations so warrant.

(iv) The mode of payment of arrears, as laid down in Rule 14 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 shall be followed, subject to the overall financial impact and the capacity of the concerned autonomous organization to absorb the cost without putting any avoidable burden on the Governments finances, provided the conditions mentioned above are met.

6. The Central Government has not taken any decision so far in regard to various allowances based on the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Central Government employees and, therefore, until further orders the existing allowances in the autonomous organizations shall continue to be admissible as per the existing terms and conditions, irrespective of the revised pay Scales having been adopted.

Pensioners Option – 1 Mercilessly Rejected – Confederation

MOST UNKINDEST CUT OF ALL
PENSIONER’S OPTION – 1 MERCILESSLY REJECTED

It is learnt that the Committee chaired by Secretary (Pension) has NOT recommended the Option Number – 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for fixation of pension of pre -2016 Pensioners. Instead it has recommended extension of the benefit of pension determination recommended by 5th CPC ie ; arriving at notional pay in 7th CPC by applying formula for pay revision for serving employees in each Pay Commission revision and consequent pension fixation. Now the Implementation Cell of 7th CPC is studying the recommendations of Pension Committee for processing for submission for approval of Cabinet. Thus , the one and the only favourable recommendation of 7th CPC ie; the real parity in Pension which is also approved by Cabinet with a rider “subject to feasibility” is going to be mercilessly rejected by Government , inspite of repeated requests and demands from NJCA, Confederation and Pensioners Associations .

Final allowances for central govt employees under 7th Pay Commission likely to come in March: Fin Min official?

Final allowances for central govt employees under 7th Pay Commission likely to come in March: Fin Min official?

New Delhi: The struggle of central government employees unions seeking better allowances under 7th Pay Commission may be bearing fruit soon.

Finance Ministry is expected to announce new set of allowances for central government employees by March.

“May implement new allowances structure for government staff by March”, a Finance Ministry official told BTVi on Friday. BTVi tweeted:

In October the ‘Committee on Allowances’ finalised the report but the government gave then the extension till February 22, 2017, to submit its report for getting normalised the cash crunch position.

Currently, the central government employees are getting allowances under the 6th Pay Commission recommendations.

The 7th pay commission had recommended abolishing of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances. On the protest of central government employees, the government set Committee on Allowances headed by the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa To review allowances other than dearness allowance. However, it is still unclear whether arrears on allowances would be given or not.

AIRF: Performance on negotiation with 7th Pay Commission, efforts for getting Gratuity for NPS covered Employees

Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra/General Secretary/AIRF Message to its cadres explaining AIRF Performance on negotiation with 7th Pay Commission, efforts for getting Gratuity for NPS covered Employees

AIRF General Secretary briefs about AIRF achievements.
Shiva Gopal Mishra
(General Secretary)

A.I.R.F
All India Railwaymen’s Federation
(Estd, 1924)
4, State Entry Road,
New Delhi-110055

Message

All of you are well aware that, All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) is the most reputed and oldest federation of the Railwaymen in India; which started its journey in the year 1924.

Prior to AIRF having been formed in 1924; there were a number of Railway Unions existing on different clusters of the Railways under the British Rule. It was realized by the entities that, despite their best efforts they were struggling to safeguard and protect the rights of the Indian Railwaymen from discrimination and exploitation. The British Rulers were highly discriminating the Indian Workers and their policies were highly loaded in favour of the Anglo-Indian Workers. Thus, ignorance of the safety, security, disparity in wages, medical facilities and uncongenial working conditions to our fellow brothers working in different British Railway clusters, compelled them to create a largest and strongest platform to fight against these atrocities and to protect their interests and induce self-respect at the working place. Collective decision and concerted efforts paved the way for formation of prestigious, strong, massive and meticulous organization to work for the well being of the Railwaymen 24x7x65.

All India Railwaymen’s Federation has a history and saga of sacrifices of its workers while fighting 1960, 1968 and 1974 strikes.

Friends! You are also aware that, recently the 92nd Annual Conference of AIRF was held at Allahabad from 8-10 November, 2016, wherein a number of issues related to staff grievances and demands of the Railwaymen were deliberated and discussed and future line of action was drawn.

It may also be appreciated that, although there are number of organizations at the All India level, it is AIRF that stood tall for the Railwaymen’s demands against the anti-workers policies of the government and forced the Government of India to constitute the 7th CPC.

Dear Friends! Though 7th CPC’s recommendations have since been announced and implemented also, but I am personally aggrieved and pained that, the Pay Commission and the Government ignored many genuine demands of the Railway employees. One of our main demands was restoration of the Old Pension Scheme for the employees who joined on or after 01.01.2004 and the other was Minimum Wage as Rs. 26,000 to the staff at the lowest level. In the recommendations of the 7th CPC both the demands were ignored. Apart from this, many other demands were also either partly or fully ignored in the recommendations of the 7th CPC. I have personally taken note of the demands/issues and not only lodged our strong protest to the government, but pursued them to form the committees to review these demands. In this context we also met a Group of Union Ministers and apprised them of the gravity and genuineness of our demands and got assurance from them that these would be duly taken care of. We have also held meetings with the Cabinet Secretary, Secretary(DoP&T), Secretary(Exp.) etc. of the Government of India, to extract maximum benefits for all of you, but up till now nothing fruitful has emerged.

On this occasion I would like to congratulate all of you that, despite all odds, the long pending demands of enhancing the limit of monthly wages for payment of PLB from Rs.3500 to Rs.7000 was acceded to with the consistent efforts of AIRF w.e.f 01.04.2014, and the payment of PLB along with arrears of 2014-15 has since been made to all the fellow Railwaymen. You may also appreciate that, the orders for payment of Retirement Gratuity and Death Gratuity for all the NPS contributors has as well issued by the DoP&T on regular persuasions by us.

Further to this, one of our major demands for Merger of Technician Gr. II to Gr.I has also been acceded to by the Ministry of Railway in another way by upgrading substantial number of posts to the grade of Sr. Technician and Highly Skilled Technician Gr. I. It is also a landmark achievement, but still a number of grievances and demands are yet to be resolved, as such, the 92nd Annual Conference of AIRF unanimously decided to hold “All Indian Protest Day” on 14th December, 2016 throughout the Indian Railways.

Friends! At this stage I would also like to mention that, during the last sort span of period I was not keeping good health and remained hospitalized also for recovery from the ailment. As of now I am feeling perfectly well and energetic and assure you that I am for the AIRF and the cadre only. My life is for my fellow Railwaymen; with their good wishes I am with them.

As the year 2017 is approaching, I want to take this as opportunity to extend my heartfelt greetings to all of you and your families. You all are essential part to the success of our great federation, I would like to thank you all personally for showing immense faith and confidence.

I further like to appeal all of you to work hard for the betterment of the Railways. So long, the organization is strong, we are also strong. Thus, it is our prime duty to take proper care of duties and responsibilities towards our organization, society and to the nation.

I am sure that, all of you will give priority to organize the Youth and Women because without them AIRF cannot be strong. We should also keep in our mind Mission Future. I personally assure you that, you will always find me with you in your hour of need.

Please accept my best wishes for the New Year. I am sure that, you will work with great gusto and motivation to take-up the future challenges.

With fraternal greetings!
Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary

Grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence – BPMS

Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh delegation meets Dr Jitendra Singh

A delegation of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh’s Industrial Unit, “Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh”, held a meeting with Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence. The delegation also requested the Minister to issue directions to expedite the follow-up pertaining to LTC cases pending in the DoPT.

The members of the delegation sought to draw Dr Jitendra Singh’s attention to an earlier meeting with him wherein they had brought to his notice that there is 5.85 lakh sanctioned strength of Defence Civilians, but the existing strength is only 3.98 lakh as mentioned in the report of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Thus, there is a deficiency of 1.87 lakh civilian manpower and there are about 20,000 aspirants who are seeking appointment on compassionate grounds. The members of the delegation recalled that Dr Jitendra Singh had given a positive response to them and subsequently also written to the Defence Minister to take cognizance of the issue.

As per an OM of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), there is a provision to give compassionate appointment to one of the dependants for the survival of the family in case the employee unfortunately dies during the service period leaving the family behind. But the provision for such appointment is limited to 5% of the vacancies, as a result of which, according to the members of delegation, a large number of wards are kept waiting for appointment on compassionate ground because of the ceiling.

The delegation referred to an earlier letter written by Dr Jitendra Singh to the Minister of Defence, Shri Manohar Parrikar wherein the former had requested for intervention by the Defence Ministry so that the DoPT could accordingly proceed in the matter. They requested Dr Jitendra Singh to take up the issue once again with the Ministry of Defence so that their demand could be addressed. Dr Jitendra Singh assured the members of delegation that he would again seek the views of the Minister of Defence and try to work out whatever feasible.

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.

Pilot run of e-Revision Utility of CPAO for 7th Central Pay Commission Revision of Pension

CPAO/IT & Tech/Revision/ 7th CPC/2016-17/19.VOL-III/207

23.12.2016

Office Memorandum

Subject: Pilot run of e-Revision Utility of CPAO for 7th Central Pay Commission Revision of Pension.

Revision of about 9.5 lakhs Pre-2016 pension cases & 16000 post-2016 cases have become due as per recommendations of 7th CPC. As per instructions of DP&PW dated 4/08/2016, pension cases of Pre-2015 pensioners have been revised by the banks by applying the multiplication factor of 2.57.However, pension of post-2016 pensioners needs to be revised by concerned PADs. At present, these cases are being revised through COMPACT and physical authorities are sent to CPAO for authorization of pension. As COMPACT does not provide the facility of sending online Revision Authorities under the digital signatures of concerned PAOs to CPAO, CPAO has to wait for physical Revision Authorities for the validation of PAOs’ signature and special seal. Due to this, the process of pension revision becomes time consuming which ultimately slows down the whole process of revision. To overcome this problem, CPAO has developed online e-revision utility to take care of 7th CPC Pension Revision with the facility of sending digitally signed Revision Authority under the digital signatures of PAOs to CPAO.

2.11 has been decided to start the pilot run of new utility in 8 PAOs i.e. PAD, CRPF, New Delhi, PAO, CISF, New Delhi and PAO, BSF New Delhi of MHA; PAO, NDIZ and PAO , Food Zone of UD; PAO, CWC in Water Recourses; Pr. AO/PAO , New Delhi in External Affairs and ZAD, CBDT New Delhi in CBDT.

7th Pay Commission: Personally pained as Government ignored genuine demands, says NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra

7th Pay Commission: Personally pained as Government ignored genuine demands, says NJCA convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra

NJCA had led a relentless campaign to seek upgradation of minimum salary to Rs 26,000, instead of Rs 18,000 proposed by 7th Central Pay Commission.

New Delhi, Jan 4: National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra once again lashed out at Centre for not paying heed to the demands of aggrieved central government employees. Mishra, who also heads the All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF), claimed that he is personally pained since the government has ignored the genuine demands raised on behalf of employee unions. Mishra listed two of the most genuine demands which he wanted Centre to fulfill: Upscaling of minimum salary to Rs 26,000 and enabling Old Pension System for employees hired on and after 1st January, 2014.
“In the recommendations of the 7th CPC both the demands were ignored,” Mishra said in his statement issued for AIRF. He further added, “held meetings with the Cabinet Secretary, Secretary(DoP&T), Secretary (Exp.) etc. of the Government of India, to extract maximum benefits for all of you, but up till now nothing fruitful has emerged,” he added.
Centre had constituted a High Level Committee headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to look into the anomalies raised following the implementation of 7th Pay Commission. The allowances of government employees, along with arrears would only be cleared after the committee submits is report. The allowances are likely to be rolled out following the Union Budget.
The report of 7th Pay Commission was notified by Union Government in July. Although the salaries have been hiked using 2.57 fitment factor. However, the hike in allowances were put on hold as employee unions had raised objections. The 7th Pay Commission report submitted by Justice (retd) AK Mathur subsumed 37 and abolished 51 out of the incumbent 196 allowances.
Apart from the National Council (Staff Side), Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers have launched a campaign against Centre, seeking fulfillment of 21-point-charter of demands. They have called for a nationwide strike on February 15.

7th Pay Commission: Top 2 developments before Budget 2017 raise hopes for Central government employees

7th Pay Commission: Top 2 developments before Budget 2017 raise hopes for Central government employees

The finance ministry seems better placed now after demonetisation to decide on raising allowances as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

With the dust at least partly settled over demonetisation and the subsequent disruption at the finance ministry, there seems to be renewed cheer among Central government employees of a decision on allowances as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Two developments in this regard are worth taking note of, even as Budget 2017 is about a month away.

As has been reportedly earlier, the second amnesty scheme for tax defaulters – Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana, 2016 – estimated to net the Modi government a substantial amount, the financial outgo of Rs 1,02,100 crore no longer seems to be a hurdle.

However, the note ban decision and the spate of activities that followed the decision about raising allowances to the back burner made employees restive.

Now they hope the government will quickly move on the issue that involves about 47 lakh Central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.

While a website claiming to represent bureaucrats said that the finance ministry is likely to pay the enhanced allowances (possibly along with arrears) after Budget 2017 in February, another said that employees have sought a meeting with the ministry to resolve the issue at the earliest.

“Government is very pleased to pay the higher allowances to its employees after Budget. The acute cash crunch in banks and ATMs that prevailed for a month following the demonetization move of the government has eased from January 1, as the daily withdrawal limit from ATMs has been increased from Rs 2,500 to Rs 4,500. Hence, the Finance Ministry felt it would be wiser to announce of higher allowances after Budget,” the Sen Times quoted a senior finance ministry official as saying.

Another significant development is a communication by the staff side National Council of the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) seeking an early redressal of the issue.

“Almost four months have passed (since September 1, 2016 meeting) without any outcome. All the Central Government Employees are quite agitated as well as are having mental agony because allowances of the VII CPC, have not been implemented. You are therefore, requested to fix-up a meeting of the Committee on Allowances, at an earliest to resolve the issues placed in the memorandum of the Staff Side(JCM) on various allowances,” the letter read.

The CPC examined 196 allowances and gave its recommendations on abolishing or raising some of them while recommending others to be subsumed with other perks. It had proposed 138.71 percent hike in HRA and 49.79 percent for other allowances, while submitting its voluminous report in November 2015.

The Budget for the financial year 2017-18 is likely to be presented on February 1 by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% – Dearness Allowance Estimation

DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% – Dearness Allowance Estimation

DA from January 2017 will be 4% or 5% based on Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) from January 2016 to December 2016 – Net increase in DA with effect from January 2017 is estimated to be 2% or 3%

All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for the month of November 2016 has been released by Ministry of Labour few days back.

What do we need for estimating DA from January 2017 ?

After implementation of 7th Pay Commission report, same inflation index i.e Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) with base year 2001=100, which was used for 6th Pay Commission Pay, is adopted for determining Dearness Allowance of Central Government Employees and Pensioners.

The only difference in DA calculation as far as DA from January 2016 will be, will be taking the Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015 in the place of Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2005 which was used in 6th CPC DA calculation

Dearness Allowance payable after implementation of 7th Pay Commission = (Avg of CPI-IW for the past 12 months – Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015)*100/(Average of CPI-IW recorded in 2015)

In order to determine DA with effect from January 2017, based on the above formula we need Consumer Price Index for the months from January 2016 to December 2016

Now that Consumer Price Index for the months from January 2016 to November 2016 is available, we have made an attempt to estimate Dearness Allowance applicable to Central Government Employees and Pensioners with effect from 1st January 2016, by assuming the possible CPI (IW) for the month of December 2016.

Month Actual AICPI-IW
Jan-2016 269
Feb-2016 267
Mar-2016 268
Apr-2016 271
May-2016 275
Jun-2016 277
Jul-2016 280
Aug-2016 278
Sep-2016 277
Oct-2016 278
Nov-2016 277
Dec-2016 Yet to be released

Estimation of DA from 1st January 2017:

Scenario 1 : No increase in AICPI (IW) in December 2016

AICPI (IW) for November 2016 is 277. If AICPI (IW) for December 2016 remains the same as November 2016, there will be additional 1% increase in DA from January 2017 which would make overall DA as 5%.

DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+
277+278+277+277)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 5 %

Scenario 2: Decrease in AICPI (IW) in December 2016

Even if All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) decreases by 31 point and pegged at 246 in the month of December 2016, DA from January 2017 will be 4% . At the same time even for 1 point decrease in the index for December 2016 will result in lesser DA increase from January 2017 compared to Sceanrio 1 in which index is unaltered in Dec 2016.

DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+
277+278+277+246)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 4 %
DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+
277+278+277+276)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 4 %

Scenario 3 : Increase in AICPI (IW) in December 2016

It is very interesting to note here that, even for increase in consumer price index in the month of December up to 31 points, i.e Increase in AICPI (IW) for December 2016 to 308 points from 277 points in November 2016, DA from January 2017 will be 5% only.

DA with effect from 1st January 2017 = [ (269+267+268+271+
275+277+280+278+277+
278+277+308)/12]-(261.4)
X100/261.4
= 5 %

The other scenario that increase of more than 31 points in AICPI (IW) in the month of December 2016 for making DA with effect from January 2017 more than 5% is most unlikely.

Hence, it is more logical to conclude that DA from January 2017 will be either 4% or 5%.

Revision of Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor of Workshops and Production Units

Revision of Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor of Workshops and Production Units

Since recommendations of the VII CPC have already been accepted by the government, and most of them have been implemented by the Ministry of Railways as well, resulting in revision of various pay scales etc., it would be quite appropriate that, Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor be revised for Workshops and Production Units Staff w.e.f. 01.01.2016, i.e. date of implementation of recommendations of the VII CPC at an early date.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor of Workshops and Production Units

Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor of Workshops and Production Units Staff were last revised vide Railway Board’s letter No.2008/M(W)/814/38 dated 27.07.2010 after implementation of recommendations of the VII CPC and revision of pay scales etc. based on that.

Since recommendations of the VII CPC have already been accepted by the government, and most of them have been implemented by the Ministry of Railways as well, resulting in revision of various pay scales etc., it would be quite appropriate that, Hourly Rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factor be revised for Workshops and Production Units Staff w.e.f. 01.01.2016, i.e. date of implementation of recommendations of the VII CPC at an early date.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Yours Faithfully,

7th Pay Commission – SBI Releases arrears for Veterans

7th Pay Commission – SBI Releases arrears for Veterans

Public sector bank State Bank of India (SBI) said that it has released Rs 3,323.24 crore in arrears to defence pensioners as part of the 7th Pay Commission on Friday. The bank released the amount to about 9.94 lakh pensioners, Rajnish Kumar, managing director (national banking group), said in a statement.

Last month, the bank released about Rs 4,003 crore worth in arrears to 4.60 lakh retired services pensioners. The bank serves to the largest share of central government pensioners across the country and to about 50 percent of total defence pensioners.

This means that so far, roughly Rs 7,300 crore worth in arrears has been released to defence pensioners till now.

In October, the defence ministry had said that it had deferred the representation of the armed forces for a percentage-based system rather than a slab-based system for determining disability pension to the Anomaly Committee of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC).

The move followed criticism from the opposition parties and the defence forces over a letter issued on September 30, which had stated that a slab-based system will replace the percentage method of calculating the pension for the disability pension for the Army, Navy and the Air Force personnel.

“Service Headquarters have represented that the percentage based system should be continued under the 7th pay commission for calculating disability pension for Defence Services at par with their Civilian counterparts. The Ministry has referred the representation of the Service Headquarters to the Anomaly Committee of 7th pay commission for consideration,” a statement by the defence ministry stated.
