CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS

MEMORANDUM

Memorandum submitted to —————————- on the grievances of Central Government employees and Pensioners.

No………………………… Date…………

Respected Sir/Madam,

We, on behalf of 32 lakhs Central Government employees and 33 lakhs Pensioners, seek your benign intervention to settle the following genuine grievances pending redressal for the last many years. We have brought these issues to the notice of the Central Government several times and also discussed in the negotiating forum which meets rarely. Inspite of our best efforts the issues could not be settled due to the unhelpful attitude of the Government. Having left with no other alternatives, we have been compelled to declare one day nationwide strike of Central Government employees on 15th November 2018. It is in this background, we are approaching your goodself for your kind intervention, so that the matter will be brought to the notice of the Hon’ble Prime Minister for early settlement.

1. Scrap Contributory Pension Scheme (Known as New Pension Scheme – NPS) and restore Defined Benefit Pension Scheme under CCS (Pension) Rules 1972 to all Central Government Employees, joined in service on or after 01-01-2004.

2. Honour assurance given by Group of Ministers to the Leaders of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) of Central Government employees regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula for Pay revision from 01-01­2016.

3. Regularisation and grant of Civil Servant status to Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal Department. Implement all positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee report without any modifications or dilution

4. Pension Parity recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission (Option-I)

5. Filling up of all vacant posts. There are about six lakhs vacant posts remaining unfilled in various Central Government departments.

6. Stop closure of Government establishments

7. Implement 7th CPC wage revision and pension revision of all Autonomous body employees and pensioners.

8. Remove 5% condition imposed on compassionate appointments

9. Stop attack on trade union rights and ensure prompt functioning of various negotiating forums under the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) scheme at National and Departmental level.

10. Grant of five promotions during the entire service career of each employee .

At present almost all employees in the Group B and Group-C cadres retire from service with maximum three promotions only. Our request to ensure minimum five promotions in one’s career is not considered favourably by Government.

The above are some of the main issues agitating the minds of lakhs of central Govt. Employees and pensioners for long. Once again request your kind intervention.

With profound regards,
Yours faithfully,

Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)

Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC).

NFIR

No. I/11/Part I

Dated: 30/07/2018

The Secretary (E), Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 11/2008.

(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2010/I/7/5/1 dated 14/03/2012.

The Railway Board vide letter dated 14/03/2012 had issued instructions to the Zonal Railways etc to grant two additional increments to the Nursing Staff possessing B.Sc. Degree as additional qualification in terms of para 160(2) (iii) of IREM Vol-I,1989 Edition, on the basis of pay drawn in 6th CPC Pay Band. These instructions were issued as a result of demand raised by NFIR vide PNM Item No. 11/2008.

Federation has since received representations from the Nursing staff of some Zonal Railways that the payment of two additional increments, based on the revised rates of 7th CPC is not yet ensured w.e.f. 01/01/2016, (the date of implementation of 7th CPC pay matrix) and payment continued at the old rates of 6th CPC Pay Band. The non-revision of additional increments rate has been causing hardships to the staff and grievances continued from Nursing Personnel.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly issue suitable clarification to all Zonal Railways/Production Units to grant two additional increments (3% each on 7th CPC Pay) from 01-01-2016 to the Nursing Personnel. A copy of instructions issued may please be endorsed to Federation.

Yours faithfully

However this Department has been receiving various queries regarding CEA/Hostel Subsidy especially with regard to the applicability of various provision/instructions issued during sixth CPC regime/period. Further references have also been received regarding the difficulty being faced by some government employees in obtaining certificate of the Head of the

Institution as mentioned in this Department’s OM of even number dated 16-8-2017.

2. Keeping in view the above, it has been decided to issue consolidated instructions in supersession of all earlier OMs on the subject of Children Education Allowance and Hostel subsidy as under:-

a) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel subsidy can be claimed only for the two eldest surviving children with the exception that in case the second child birth results in twins/multiple birth. In case of failure of sterilization operation, the CEA/Hostel Subsidy would be admissible in respect of children born out of the first instance of such failure beyond the usual two children norm.

b) The amount for reimbursement of Children Education allowance will be Rs.2250/- per month (fixed) per child. This amount of Rs.2250/- is fixed irrespective of the actual expenses incurred by the Govt. Servant. In order to claim reimbursement of CEA, the Govt. servant should produce a certificate issued by the Head of the Institution for the period/year for which claim has been preferred. The certificate should confirm that the child studied in the school during the previous academic year. In case such certificate can not be obtained, self- attested copy of the report card or self attested fee receipt(s){including e-receipt(s)} confirming/indicating that the fee deposited for the entire academic year can be produced as a supporting document to claim CEA. The period/year means academic year i.e. twelve months of complete academic session.

c) The amount of ceiling of hostel subsidy is Rs.6750/- pm. In order to claim reimbursement of Hostel Subsidy for an academic year, a similar certificate from the Head of Institution confirming that the child studied in the school will suffice, with additional requirement that the certificate should mention the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential

complex. In case such certificate cannot be obtained, self attested copy of the report card and original fee receipt(s)/e-receipt(s) which should indicate the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential complex can be produced for claiming Hostel Subsidy: The expenditure on boarding and lodging or the ceiling of Rs.6750/- as mentioned above, whichever is lower, shall be paid to the employee as Hostel Subsidy. The period/year will mean the same as explained above in clause (b) of this para.

d) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance for Divyaang children of government employees shall be payable at double the normal rates of CEA prescribed above in clause (b) i.e. Rs.4500/- per month (fixed).

e) The above rates/ceiling would be automatically raised by 25% every time the Dearness Allowance on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%.

f) The Hostel Subsidy and Children Education Allowance can be claimed concurrently.

g) In case both the spouses are Government servants, only one of them can avail reimbursement under Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy.

h) The reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy will be done just once in a financial year after completion of the financial year.

i) Hostel subsidy is applicable only in respect of the child studying in a residential educational institution located at least 50 kilometers from the residence of the Government servant.

j) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy shall have no nexus with the performance of the child in his class. In other words, even if a child fails in a particular class, the reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel Subsidy shall not be stopped. However, if the child is admitted in the same class in another school, although the child has passed out of the same class in previous school or in the mid-session, CEA shall not be reimbursable.

k) If a Government servant dies while in service, the Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible in respect of his/her children subject to observance of other conditions for its grant provided the wife/husband of the deceased is not employed in service of the Central Govt., State Government, Autonomous body, PSU, Semi Government Organization such as Municipality, Port Trust Authority or any other organization partly or fully funded by the Central Govt./State Governments. In such cases the CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be payable to the children till such time the employee would have actually received the same, subject. to the condition that other terms and conditions are fulfilled. The payment shall be made by the office in which the Government servant was working prior to his death and will be regulated by the other conditions, laid down in this OM.

I) In case of retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service, CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be admissible till the end of the academic year in which the Government servant ceases to be in service due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service in the course of an academic year. The payment shall be made by the office in which the government servant worked prior to these events and will be regulated by the other conditions laid down in this OM.

m) The upper age limit for Divyaang children has been set at 22 years. In the case of other children the age limit will be 20 years or till the time of passing 12th class whichever is earlier. There shall be no minimum age.

n) Reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy shall be applicable for children from class nursery to twelfth, including classes eleventh and twelfth held by Junior Colleges or schools affiliated to Universities or Boards of Education.

0) CEA is allowed in case of children studying through “Correspondence or Distance Learning” subject to other conditions laid down herein.

p) The CEA and Hostel Subsidy is admissible in respect of children studying from two classes before class one to 12th standard and also for the initial two years of a diploma/certificate course from Polytechnic/ITI/Engineering College, if the child pursues the course after passing 10th standard and the Government servant has not been granted CEA/ Hostel Subsidy in respect of the child for studies in I1th and 12th standards.
q) In respect of schools/institutions at nursery, primary and middle level not affiliated to any Board of education, the reimbursement under the Scheme may be allowed for the children studying in a recognized school/institution. Recognized school/institution in this regard means a Government school or any education institution whether in receipt of Govt. Aid or not, recognized by the Central or State Government or Union Territory Administration or by University or a recognized educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution/school is situated.

r) In case of a Divyaang child studying in an institution i.e. aided or approved by the Central/State Govt. or UT Administration or whose fees are approved by any of these authorities, the Children Education Allowance paid by the Govt. servant shall be reimbursed irrespective of whether the institution is ‘recognized’ or not. In such cases the benefits will be admissible till the child attains the age of 22 years.

s) The CEA is payable for the children of all Central Government employees including citizens of Nepal[ and Bhutan, who are employees of Government of India, and whose children are studying in the native place. However, a certificate may be obtained from the concerned Indian Mission that the school ‘ is recognized by the educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution is situated.

t) The Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible to a Govt. servant while he/she is on duty or is under suspension or is on leave (including extra ordinary leave). Provided that during any period which is treated as ‘dies non’ the Govt. servant shall not be eligible for the CEA/Hostel subsidy for that period.

3. These above instructions would come into effect from 1st July, 2017.

As per mailing list (except overseas Audit Offices),
2. Director General (Commercial-I)-Local,
3. Principal Director (Headquarters)-Local.

Subject: Enhancement of benchmark from “Good” to “Very Good” for grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Sir/Madam,

Attention is invited to Department of Personnel and Training’s O.M No. 35034/3/2015-Estt.(D) dated 28.09.2016 whereby the benchmark for grant of financial upgradation under MACP has been enhanced to “Very Good” with effect from 25.04.2016.

2. In this regard, various references are being received regarding the applicability of O.M dated 28.09.2016 for determining the eligibility for grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme by the Departmental Screening Committee.

3. The matter was taken up with the Ministry and it has been clarified that the aforesaid O.M dated 28.09.2016 is applicable with effect from 25.07.2016 i.e the date of issue of Government Resolution by the Department of Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of “Very Good” is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be at least “Very Good”.

Read also: Clarification on applicability of “Very Good” benchmark for financial upgradation under MACPS and consideration of “Good” benchmark for the previous years before 25.07.2016

4. Regarding assessing the ‘overall grading’ of APARs, it has been clarified that guidelines/instructions issued by DoP&T with regard to method of assessment by Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) are applicable in cases of Departmental Screening Committee (DSC) for grant of financial upgradations under ACP/MACP Schemes. Hence, the principle adopted by DPCs for arriving at “Overall grading” (“Very Good” in case of MACP) may be adopted by the DSC also.

5. It is, therefore, requested that grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme may be processed in light of the above clarification.

6. Receipt of this circular may please be acknowledged.

Yours faithfully,

Nirman Bhawan, New Delhi,
Dated : 29.06.2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Interest bearing advances/ Seventh Central Pay commission recommendation on House Building Advance – enhancement in past cases regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Ministry’s OM No. I- 17011/11(4)/2016-H.III dated 09.11.2017 on the above-mentioned subject and to say that it has been decided in consultation with Ministry of Finance to make the aforesaid orders applicable with effect from 1st January, 2016. Accordingly, it has been decided that an enhancement of House Building Advance, if applied for, would be granted to government employee for an amount equivalent to the difference between the previously sanctioned amount and the new eligible amount determined on the basis of basic pay as per 7th CPC, in past cases, where HBA was sanctioned on or after 01.01.2016 but before 09.11.2017 subject to complying following conditions :

a) The Government employee should not have drawn the entire amount of HBA sanctioned under earlier orders and/ or where construction is not completed/full cost towards acquisition of house/ flat is yet to be paid.

b) There will be no deviation from the approved plan of construction on the basis of which the original sanction of House Building Advance was accorded. The revised cost of the original plan can, however, be considered for determining the additional amount, subject to the prescribed maximum limits.

c) Supplementary Mortgage Deed, Personal Bond and Sureties will be drawn and executed at the expense of the loanee.

d) The actual entitlement will be restricted to the repaying capacity computed on the basis of the formula laid down in this Ministry’s OM No I-17011/11(4)/2016-H.III dated 09.11.2017. It should be ensured that the entire amount of advance with interest is recovered before retirement of the Government servant

e) Rate of interest:

The rate of interest will be at 8.50% from the financial year 2017-18 onwards. This will be reviewed every three years to be notified in consultation with Ministry of Finance. However, the new rate of interest would be chargeable only on collective amount that would remain outstanding on grant of enhancement of HBA, i.e., the unpaid portion of previously sanctioned HBA plus the enhancement so granted. Thus, the amount of HBA that has already been re-paid on old rates will not attract the fresh interest charges.

2. However, the existing limit of maximum admissible amount of Rs. 25 lakhs for the purpose of construction/ purchase of new house/ flat and Rs. 10 lakhs for expansion of existing house/ flat would remain unchanged. In other words, the sum total of previously, sanctioned House Building Advance and the enhancement granted under these orders cannot exceed the aforesaid limits. In any case, not more than one enhancement is admissible to a Government employee.

3. The applications for enhanced House Building Advance should be submitted within six months from the date of issue of this order.

4. Ministries/ Departments with branch offices in the far-flung areas are be advised to give wider publicity to these orders through modern communication means so that there is no occasion for any representation for extending the time limit of six months on the grounds of late receipt of these orders.

5. This issues in supersession of all the earlier orders on the subject.

Sub: Rectification of MACPS Anomalies – Stepping up of pay of Senior incumbents at par with Juniors – Case of Railway Accounts Department-reg.

The above subject has been taken up by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a recognized Federation of Railway employees, in the Permanent Negotiating Machinery (PNM) fora with the Railway Ministry. In the last meeting held between the Railway Board Members and the Federation on 17/05/2016, following agreement was recorded :-

It was explained to the Federation that the 7th CPC have addressed this issue in one of their recommendations. Therefore, we may await for the final outcome on the 7th CPC recommendations. If their recommendation is accepted by the Government, past cases of similar nature may be examined accordingly. The General Secretary/NFIR requested to see that injustice done to the Senior qualified staff is removed duly granting them the benefit of GP 5400/-.

Federation has since learnt that case file bearing No. PCV/2016/MACPS1(Pt1) dealing with the above subject has been sent by the Railway Ministry to the DoP&T to obtain NOC and has been pending since long period. The delay in granting NOC is causing frustration and resentment among the staff of Accounts Department on the Railways.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Secretary/DoP&T to kindly see that clearance from DoP&T to implement the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission is granted to the Railway Ministry soon.

Federation may please be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully

S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary &
Leader Staff Side (JCM)
