DA on Transport Allowance at Pre-revised Rates – Noting of DoE

DA on Transport Allowance at Pre-revised Rates – Noting of DoE

“Clarification regarding admissibility of DA on Transport Allowance at pre-revised rates from 01.07.2016 (@132%) and from 01.01.2017 @ 136%”

21/5/2017-E-II(B) Pt.

Department of Expenditure
E.II(B) Section

Reference PUC I to III, (p.1/NLF of DOT, p2.3/cor.,p.u.6/cor.)

References have been received from Department of Telecom, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat (Promotee Assistants) Association seeking clarification regarding admissibility of DA on Transport Allowance at pre-revised rates from 01.07.2016 (@132%) and from 01.01.2017 @ 136%

2. As per recommendations of 7th CPC, rates of Transport Allowance had been revised w.e.f. 01.07.2017. Details of rates during 6th CPC and as prescribed by 7th CPC are given below:

Employees drawing pay in Pay Level Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 7th CPC Rates of Transport Allowance per month as per the recommendation of 6th CPC
Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I Employees posted at other Places Employees posted in the Cities as per Annexure-I Employees posted at Other Places
9 and above Rs.7200 + DA thereon Rs.3600 + DA thereon Rs. 3200/- + DA thereon Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon
3 to 8 and those drawing Pay of Rs.24200/- and above in Level 1 & 2 of the Pay Matrix Rs. 3600 + DA thereon Rs. 1800 + DA thereon Rs. 1600/- + DA thereon Rs. 800/- + DA thereon
1 and 2 Rs. 1350 + DA thereon Rs. 900 + DA thereon Rs. 600/- + DA thereon Rs. 400/- + DA thereon

3. It may be seen from the above table that rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by 7th CPC are inclusive of DA @ 125% as on 01.01.2016.

4. It is clearly mentioned in the Resolution dated 25.07.2016 that till a final decision on Allowances is taken based on the recommendations of this Committee, all Allowances will continue to be paid at existing rates in existing pay strucutre, as if the pay had not been revised with effect from 1st day of January, 2016.” Therefore, between 01.01.2016 and 30.06.2017, no DA had been allowed on any Allowance.

5. In case, if the enhanced rate of DA i.e. 132% w.e.f. 0.07.2016 & 136% w.e.f. 01.01.2017 given for pre-revised pay scale of 6th CPC, is allowed on Transport Allowance rates as per 6th CPC, it would exceed the rates of Transport Allowance as recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission which is not permissible. Therefore, we may clarify to D/o Telecommunication, D/o Revenue and Central Secretariat Association (Promottee Assistants) that enhanced rate of DA on 6th CPC rates of Transport Allowance from 01.07.2016 to 30.06.2017, is not admissible. Kindly see for consideration.

Grant of Children Education Allowance to the railway employees implementation of Board’s decision – problems

Need Uniform Format to Claim Children Education Allowance – NFIR

NFIR writes to Railway Board to issue proper unifrom format to claims for reimbursement of CEA to avoid delay…

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi – 110 055

Affiliated to:
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF)

No.I/13(a)

Dated: 04/06/2018

Sub: Grant of Children Education Allowance to the railway employees implementation of Board’s decision – problems – reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s RBE No.147/2017 letter No.E(W)2017/ED-2/3 dated 12/10/2017.

Pursuant to Government decision on the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission, the DoP&T vide No.A-27012/02/2017-Estt.(AL) dated 16/08//2017 had issued instructions revising the amount for reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy. The Railway Board vide RBE No.147/2017 dated l2th Oct, 2017 has issued corresponding instructions to the General Managers for ensuring payment of Children Education Allowance & Hostel Subsidy at revised rates from 01/07/2017.

On Zonal Railways, the staff are facing much inconvenience on account of non-issuance of proper proforma/format for preferring claims, consequently the reimbursement is delayed and claims continued to remain pending due to queries being raised at different levels. It is further learnt that the Eastern Railway, South Eastern Railway and Central Railway have issued proforma/format which are however not common. Other Zonal Railways have not at all issued proforma for preferring the claims. It has however been found that the Eastern Railway Administration has not only circulated format, but also issued JPO.

NFIR is of the view that it would be necessary to bring reimbursement to avoid delay as well staff grievances.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to arrange to issue proper format to enable the employees to prefer claims without hassles together with certificate from the Heads of the Institutions. Such uniform format will be advantageous to the Railway Administration as well to staff who are entitled for reimbursement of Children Education allowance/Hostel Subsidy.

Yours faithfully,

  • With reference to the proposal of Railway Board vide letter dated 24/03/2015, NFIR vide its letters dated 26/03/2015 and 31/03/2015 had furnished detailed comments on draft report of the Committee of IT cadre constituted by the Board for gazetted and non-gazetted cadres. Thereafter the Railway Board though issued half-baked and erroneous orders vide letter No. 2016/AC-II (CC)/37/9 dated 18/04/2017 for non-gazetted IT cadre, which was disputed by NFIR vide letter 08/11/2017. However, there has been no finality on cadre restructuring of gazetted set up of IT cadre till date.
  • The series of communications sent by the Federation, duly highlighting 7th CPC recommendations along with model cadre structure of EDP Staff has again been highlighted to the Railway Ministry vide NFIR’s letter dated 11/12/2017 with request to re-visit the existing instructions and formulate the structure, but however there has been no response from Railway Board.
  • Federation also brought to the notice of Railway Ministry, the action initiated by the DoP&T (OM dated 17/10/2016) relating to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC, but the Federation is still unaware as to what proposal/comments have been made available by the Railway Ministry to the DoP&T. Federation would like to have a copy of the comments for pursuing the matter further and to provide additional material/comments where necessary.
  • Federation also requested the Railway Board for placement of 15% of JA Grade Posts of IT cadre in GP 8700 and 64 JA Grade Posts in the Zones & Production Units based on the recommendations of the report of EDs Committee, unfortunately, nothing has been done in this regard also.
  • Federation’s suggestions for provision of 1 SAG post in each Zone & Production Unit, considering the technological advancement/fast changes taking place in this field, has also not been considered as there has been no response yet.
  • Federation’s another suggestion for provision of atleast 26 posts in ICF on par with RCF, Kapurthala is also yet to be considered.

NFIR, therefore once again requests the Railway Board (FC & MS) to kindly consider the above merits as well the comments furnished earlier through communications cited under reference and take expeditious action for granting cadre restructuring and upgradation for IT cadre (Gazetted) as recommended by 7th CPC as well the EDs’ Committee report. Copies of documents sent to the DoP&T may kindly be made available to the Federation early.

DA/One

CLASS ORIENTED MILITANT STRUGGLE OF THREE LAKHS GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS

CLASS ORIENTED MILITANT STRUGGLE OF THREE LAKHS GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS

“CHANGE THE POLICY OR WE SHALL CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT”

M.Krishnan
Secretary General, Confederation
Ex-Secretary General, NFPE

The unprecedented strike of three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of Postal department will enter the 14th day on Monday. Functioning of  rural postal services has come to a grinding halt. Out of 1,55,000 Post offices, 1,29,500 rural Post offices are completely shut down. GDS are not demanding to give them the “Moon” from the sky. They are demanding their legitimate wage revision. If 32 lakhs departmental employees wage revision can be implemented within eight months after submission of Seventh CPC report, why the unjustified delay of eighteen months for implementation of wage revision of only three lakhs low-paid GDS employees? Why lamenting about the deficit of the department only when GDS wage revision comes? Are GDS responsible for the deficit? No, not at all.

Postal “Gods” and Central Government are in deep slumber for eighteen months, when poor GDs are waiting..waiting..and waiting. The strike is a natural outburst of pentup discontentment and anger of the marginalized section after desperately waiting for long. Then suddenly the sleeping “Gods” wokeup. Appeal after appeal started pouring in all languages just like distributing chocolates to lure children. But 96% of GDS stood united and continued their struggle. They declared they will not surrender their self-respect and prestige, even if they and their families are made to starve or die by prolonging the strike.

They know, many had lost their lives and many sacrificed before our country got freedom. Mahatmaji had told the Britishers “you can kill me, but you can not make me surrender”.

They know, many had lost their lives and many sacrificed before the most dreaded “apartheid” system is legally banned and abolished in South Africa. Nelson Mandela has taught them “never to give up or surrender”.

They know, many had lost their lives and many sacrificed before the “slave system” is legally abolished in United States. Martin Luther King had told them “I have a dream” and his dream had come true later.

GDS system is a “beggar system”and nothing but slavery and bonded labour. This heroic struggle of GDS will definitely mark the beginning of the end of this slave system which is a “black mark in the face of Indian democracy”. Those GDS and departmental employees (though in some states only) who participated in this historic struggle for emancipation of the most down trodden section of the society will be remembered for ever in the history and their sacrifice will never go in vain.

Those Government’s supporters in the bureaucracy are propagating that GDS unions have committed a great mistake and unpardonable crime by going on an “untimely” indefinite strike, that too all the four Unions together. We have only to remind them the old saying “when a beggar come to your house, you need not give money to him if you don’t like, but please don’t unleash your dogs to bite him”.  Let the GDS fight for their own destiny. Government may allow their right or not. This struggle is not the end of history. As long as injustice and discrimination are there, strikes and protests will emerge again and again like phoenix bird from the ashes.

Now the ball is in the court of the Government and Postal Department. It is they to decide how to play. What is wrong in inviting the GDS unions for negotiation and in reaching an honourable settlement, instead of distributing pamphlet type appeals one after another? What is the mindset of the top bureaucracy of the Postal Board? Are they thinking like olden days feudal landlords and expecting the GDS Union leaders “to obey them and not to question them”. Sorry, they are thoroughly mistaken and they should understand the writings on the wall. Only mutual trust and goodwill can build confidence in the mind of striking GDS and that can only lead to an amicable settlement.

We hope that good sense will prevail upon the powers-that-be. We want to make it clear that any attempt to break or crush the strike by attempting to victimization or any other coercive methods will only complicate the situation and the entire Central Government Employees will be forced to come out to defend and protect the striking GDS at any cost.

Central Government should increase Minimum Pay and Fitment formula – Karnataka COC

Revision of Minimum Pay and Fitment formula due to increased revenue collections of the Central Government

Comrades,

Today none of the 7th CPC related demands of Central Government Employees are settled. The assurance given by the Group of Ministers to the NJCA leaders regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is in paper even after a lapse of 20 months. Now the Finance Minister has replied in Parliament that “no change in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is at present under consideration”.

To avert the 11th July CG employees strike the Hon’ble Prime Minster had instructed the group of Hon’ble Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singhji, Hon’ble Home Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhuji , Hon’ble Railway Minister and Shri Arun Jaitelyji , Hon’ble Finance Minister to hold discussions with the Staff Side (JCM) on 30th June 2016 and the Shri Arun Jaitelyji , Hon’ble Finance Minister had published a written assurances in the Government website on 6th July 2016 leading to deferment of the strike .

Pay Commission Objective: It is the endeavour of every pay commission to ensure that the pay and allowances of employees should be ‘fair and reasonable’. The pay structure should also motivate the employees to reasonable levels of performance in the tasks assigned to them, so that the general public derive the benefit of their service as intended.

Our demand of revision of Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is quite justified.

Comparison of earlier wage hike we can observe that the fitment factor of 2.57 times is the lowest comparing to other pay commissions. If we make a study of earlier pay commission.

Pay Commission Year Minimum wage ( old ) Minimum wage (revised) Increase
2nd CPC 1959 Rs 55/- Rs 80/- 1.45 times
3rd CPC 1973 Rs 80/- Rs 196/- 2.45 times
4th CPC 1986 Rs 196/- Rs 750/- 3.82 times
5th CPC 1996 Rs 750/- Rs 2550/- 3.40 times
6th CPC* 2006 Rs 2550/- Rs 7000/- 2.74 times
7th CPC * 2016 Rs 7000/- Rs 18000/- 2.57 times

Comparative picture of pay of Central Government and State Government in regards to minimum wage as on 1.7.2017

Many of the State Governments are following the Central Government pay scales, but a few state Governments have improved upon the Central Government pay scales. The examples are as under:

 

Government

Agency

Group “D” Basic

pay in Rs

Add Skill 25%

from Group “D” to Group “C”

Group “C”
Basic Pay in Rs
DA% Add DA Amount

in  Rs

Basic Pay in

Group “C” in Rs

Govt. of India Nil 18000 5 900 18900
Andhra

Pradesh &  Telangana

13000 3250 16250 24.1 3916 20166
Kerala 16500 4125 20625 14 2887 23512
Karnataka 17000 4250 21250 Nil 21250

The financial position of the Central Government is very good. Even the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has shown increase in last few years which is around 7% , the Indian economy is fastest growing and placed 7th in the world ( which is at 2,250.987 billions of $ ), comparing to wages paid in the world our wages are at lower level. The Government fiscal budget deficit equal to 3.50 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product in 2016. Compared to 2008 where the fiscal deficit was at 7.8%, but today the fiscal deficit is contained at 3.5%. This is also a healthy sign of the economic status of the Central Government financial status, the budget fiscal deficit is always below 4%.

Direct tax collections in 2017-18 at Rs 9.95 lakh crore, exceeded the revised budgetary target of Rs 9.8 lakh crore. Also, 6.84 crore income tax returns filed in the year against 5.43 crore in the previous year signalling a rise of 26% . A net of 99.5 lakh new assesses were added to the tax net.

Net collection from corporate tax went up 17.1 per cent while that from personal income tax rose 18.9%.

The revenue collection from Goods and Services Tax (GST) exceeded Rs 1 lakh crore in April 2018, GST revenue collected in April 2018 came at Rs 1,03,458 crore.

With the improved economic climate, introduction of e-way bill and improved GST compliance, GST collections would continue to show a positive trend.

The wage bill of the Central Government on in its employees is less than 10% or 3.4% of the GDP, which is less compared to various countries world wide .

Vacancy of the Central Government is about 15% , more than 4 lakhs vacancies are existing in the Central Government the work load is being carried out by the existing employees. The Government being a model employer should pay for its employees and motivate them to work more for implementation of its policies.

Hence due to the improved revenue earning of the Central Government, as assured to the staff side JCM by the Group of Ministers in respect of increase of Minimum Pay and Fitment formula, the Central Government should increase the Minimum Pay and Fitment formula.
