Government to take final call on allowances by June 1

Government to take final call on allowances by June 1

New Delhi: The Narendra Modi government is likely to take a final decision by June 1 on higher allowances for 4.7 million central government employees.

The assurance was given by the Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha after a meeting with the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), which is a centralised union of several central government employees unions.

The secretary of the NJCA, Shiv Gopal Mishra met with Sinha and asked the demand of the central government employees on allowances.

“Today I met the Cabinet Secretary and handed him over a copy of our letter regarding inordinate delay in implementation of the report of the Committee on Allowances,” Mishra said.

Sinha told Mishra that the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by him had fixed date of 1st June, 2017 for perusal of the report of the Allowances Committee, and soon after that, the committee will send a memorandum to the Cabinet for nod.

In late June, after implementing the 7th Pay Commission proposals on salary and pension, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had announced the ‘Committee on Allowances’, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to examine the suggestions on allowances. It had time till October to give the report but this got delayed.

The decision on allowances was postponed because the 7th Pay Commission wanted a number of these to be abolished or subsumed. Employee unions were opposed.

The ‘Committee on Allowances’ submitted its report to finance minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

However, the Committee’s report on higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission haven’t made public.

The report on allowances is now examined by the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) and after it, it will be placed before the Cabinet.

The central government employees now get all allowances except dearness allowance, according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations until issuing of higher allowances notification.

Subject: – Extension of the benefit of bunching to Assistant Accounts Officers as per the recommendations of 7CPC.

Sir,

I have been directed to draw your kind and personnel attention to the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category-II letter No:- AICAEA Cat-II/CHQ/2017/27 dated 27.04.2017 (Copy enclosed) on the above mentioned subject and state that, it is nearly eight months the Implementation Cell of Department of Expenditure vide order No:- 1-6/2016-IC dated 07.09.2016 has conveyed its decision to implement the recommendation of 7CPC regarding the bunching benefit to entitled employees and officers, but the Assistant Accounts Officers of Civil Accounts Organization have not yet been extended the benefit inspite of an order issued by your office in this respect. As such the Assistant Accounts Officers have become aggrieved due to non-receipt of their legitimately due benefit.

Therefore, on behalf of this federation, I seek your kind intervention into the matter so that the issue is settled at the earliest.

Four your kind and early favorable action this federation shall be highly thankful to you.

Thanking you,

Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – Clarification

Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS: AIRF writes to Railway Board on clarification

A.I.R.F.
All India Railwaymen’s Federation

D.O. No.AIRF/MACPS

Dated : 22.05.2017

Sub: Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – Clarification reg.

Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2016/MACPS/1 dated 19.05.2017

This issue has been discussed with you on several occasions individually as well as jointly, where I mentioned that, the Cabinet Secretary has agreed to us that, the Railways being working under different working conditions, and for operation of the trains, a flow process system is in vogue, that is the reason, in the selections for various posts and categories; benchmarking system had been introduced after VI CPC when DoP&T issued instructions that, financial upgradation under MACPS should be based on “Very Good” benchmark. Even DoP&T agreed that the same benchmark should be used for MACPS which is in vogue for selection in case of the Railway employees.

Now, it is a matter of utter surprise that, on the reference as well as reply from the DoP&T, the Railways had issued instructions for “Very Good” benchmark for financial upgradation under MACPS. This issue is very sensitive and will definitely create lots of agitations because, in the MACPS benchmark of “Very Good” will be considered for consecutive three years. In most of the cases employees will be deprived of from MACPS. Since Railways are working in a flow process system, wherein, instead of individual contribution, joint contribution of the employees has their weightage.

We sincerely hope that, you will kindly intervene in the matter and as has been advised by the Cabinet Secretary, the same benchmark, which is prevalent for selection should be in vogue in case of MACPS also.

With Kind regards!

Yours sincerely,
Sd/-,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary

Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

DOP&PW is likely to issue Fitment Tables & Ready Reckoners soon for Revised Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners as per OM Dated 12-5-2017 – as requested by RSCWS & BPS – to avoid delay in implementation of orders due to delay in issuing the Revised PPOs by the PSAs – i.e. the Offices from which the Pensioner Retired.

Secretary, GOI,

Patel Bhawan, New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Subject: Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Regarding: Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners. Reference: DOP&PW OM NO.38/37/2016-P&. PW(A) Dated 12-5-2017

Kind attention is invited towards the DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017 regarding Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners.

Incidentally, Fitment Tables and the Ready Reckoners have not been issued with the said orders as was done after every Pay Commission – both in respect of the Pay and Pension.

This will make the Revision of Pension very difficult, and time consuming as Notional Pay has to be fixed from one Pay Commission to the next since the Retirement of the employee for Revising their Pension as per Notional Pay in the Pay Matrix of 7th CPC.

This will substantially delay the issue of Revised PPOs and implementation of the said orders this time, causing hardship to the old Pensioners.

It is, therefore, earnestly requested that

i) Scale-wise Fitment Tables and Ready Reckoners may please be issued early for the Pensioners who had retired in the regimes of various Pay Commissions (especially those who retired from Pay Scales of Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Pay Commissions.

ii) A dedicated Software may please be posted on the Pensioners Portal for the Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners and for expeditious issue of the Revised PPOs and for placing them on the Internet.

Yours truly,
(Harchandan Singh),
Secretary General, RSCWS.

Copy for information and kind consideration:

i) Mrs. Vandana Sharma, Additional Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare, 3rd Floor Lok Nayak Bhawan, Khan Market, New Delhi – 110003.

ii) Shri Harjit Singh, Director, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare, 3rd Floor Lok Nayak Bhawan, Khan Market, New Delhi – 110003.

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

How, the battle is lost
One rank one pension denied

OPTION 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of Pension/Family pension of pre-2016 Denied inspite of availability of service records of over 80% of old pensioners.

The alternative given vide OM dated 12.5.2017 though to some extent it will benefit a good % of old pensioners, it cannot make up the lifelong loss old pensioners will suffer due to denial of option 1. Ever since Honourable Supreme Court land mark judgement dated_____ in UOI vs D S Nakra. In the hide and seek game with UOI for 100% parity between present & past Civil Pensioners Bharat Pensioners Samaj had this time secured Penalty Corner but the Babu in DOP & PW foiled the final hit.

Why only DOP& PW, our own people must share the blame! The war veterans whom we had been supporting for years in their struggle for one rank one pension were the first to oppose ‘Bharat Pensioners Samaj‘ demand for 100% parity/one rank one pension through electronic media as well as through representations (backed by their serving HODs) to GOI pleading that they only are entitled to this benefit and not the Civil pensioners

The final blow was delivered in the 7th meeting of feasibility committee on 17.10.2016 when as mentioned in Para 4 of the official minutes vide No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) GOI Ministry of Personnel, P.G. and Pensions -DOP &PW dated the 31st October, 2016 (placed here under). JCM (staff side) agreed with govt’s alternative proposal.

New Delhi: Central government employees unions leaders today is likely to to meet top government officials for higher allowances.

The central government employees now get all allowances except dearness allowance at the old rates until the cabinet approval of higher allowances.

The the Committee on Allowances, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was constituted in June last year after the government implemented the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission from January 1, 2016 in respect of basic pay and dearness allowances.

The 7th Pay Commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance, which triggered resentment among central government employees that governments complied with formation of the Committee on Allowances.

The Committee on Allowances submitted its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

The 7th Pay commission had recommended abolition of or subsuming of allowances like acting, assisting cashier, cycle, condiment, flying squad, haircutting, rajbhasha, rajdhani, robe, shoe, shorthand, soap, spectacle, uniform, vigilance and washing.

It also recommended slashing the House Rent Allowance (HRA) from 30, 20 and 10 per cent to 24, 16 and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively.

The unions leaders of central government employees are pressing hard for immediate cabinet approval of higher allowances.

7th Pay Commission: Time limit to dispose of pay-related anomalies extended to 15th November

7th Pay Commission: Time limit to dispose of pay-related anomalies extended to November 15th
The DoPT had last year asked all central government departments to set up committees to look into various pay related anomalies.

The Centre has extended the time limit to receive and dispose of pay related anomalies for central government employees by three months. November 15th will be the deadline to resolve any discrepancy arising out of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission. The earlier date was August 15.

The centre has accepted most of the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which will be implemented from January 1 2016.

The time limit for receipt of anomalies is extended by three months from the date of expiry of receiving anomalies i.e. from February 15, 2017 to May 15, 2017,” the DoPT order said. The DoPT had last year asked all central government departments to set up committees to look into various pay related anomalies. The anomaly committees were to be formed at two levels- national and departmental-consisting of representatives of the official side and the staff side of the national council and the departmental council respectively.

The DoPT had said that the Department Anomaly Committee will deal with anomalies pertaining exclusively to the department concerned and having no repercussions on the employees of another ministry or department. Cases where there is a dispute about the definition of anomaly and those where there is a disagreement between the staff side and the official side on the anomaly will be dealt by an “arbitrator”, to be appointed out of a panel of names proposed by the two sides, it had said. Now the deadline of November 15th has been fixed as the date to resolve any discrepancy arising out of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission.

Accordingly, it has been decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. White fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed. 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension wet. 1.1.2016 as per the first Permutation.

civil pensioners as revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016. In cases where pension/family pension being paid w.e.f. 1.1.2016 in accordance with this Department’s OM No. 38/37/2016~P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 happens to be more than pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 above, the pension/family pension already being paid shall be treated as revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016.

6. Instructions were issued vide this Department’s OM No. 45/86/97-P&PW(A) (iii) dated 10.02.1998 for revision of pension! family pension in respect of Government servants who retired or died before 01.01.1986, by notional fixation of their pay in the scale of pay introduced with effect from 01.01.1986.

7th CPC HRA : Justification for Retaining the Existing Rates of 10%, 20% and 30%

7th CPC HRA – Justification for Retaining the Existing Rates of 10%, 20% and 30%

“How justified is the stand of 7th CPC to apply a factor 0.8 to suppress the quantum of allowances is beyond comprehension.”

HOUSE RENT ALLOWANCE

Housing accommodation is provided to a small segment of the Civil Servants. While the percentage of satisfaction is very high at the senior level Officers, Employees at the lower levels are to depend upon the market for a dwelling place. Of late recruitment at Gr B and C levels in Central Govt Offices is on the basis of an all India Examination and the regional recruitment which was in prevalence a decade back has been dispensed with. Once, recruited, he/she is perforce to be posted outside his/her home state making it necessary to search for a dwelling unit at the place of his/her posting and compete with those workers in the private sector whose salary levels in certain cases are phenomenally high. Housing in the country, despite introduction of various projects, tax concessions etc, continues to be a seller’s paradise. A simple scrutiny of the rate of increase in the cost of construction and the rates quoted by the property dealers, real estate agents and tenant facilitators will reveal the extent of escalation in rent over the last a decade.

In Para 8.7.14 the 7th CPC has made a bald statement that with the increase in Basic pay most of the employees will be able to afford rented houses as per their entitlement. The Chart given under Para 8.7.14 indicates the rent increases over a period between 2006-14. The rent is shown to have gone up by 118% by 2014. The Commission has sourced the house rent index figures from AICPI (IW). We have no hesitation to state that the Commission’s observation based upon the most unreliable data must be discarded. Even according to the said data, which only indicates the figures upto 2014, the registered increase was 118%. The progression between 2009 to 2014 from 136 to 168 gives an average increase of 22 points. This reads as much similar to the progression of the AICPI (IW) prepared by the Indian Labour Bureau Shimla, whose commodity prices have been adopted by the 7 CPC for minimum Wage computation.

How divorced those rates are from the reality in the market has been explained with facts and figures in our letter dated 10.12.2015 to the Chairman, Empowered Committee of Secretaries. Even if one bases the computation on such unreliable data, the hypothetical progression of the housing index by end of 2015 shall be 279-290 which warrant an increase by 136%.

Relating the index figures indicated in chart under Para 8.7.14 to the DA percentage as on 1.1.2016.(125%), the ratio obtaining both in H1 and H2 i.e. 123 to 260 (2014) and 126 to 268 (2014) are 2.11 and 2.13 respectively. If the same is calibrated to 125% as on 1.1.2016, the ratio shall be 2.64 and 2.66. This will necessitate raising the HRA to 33.13% in Metro Cities, 22% in Y Class Cities and 11.12% in Z class towns.
The hypothetical progression on average basis will also make it necessary to compensate housing expenses at 29.7% in Metro Cities and 19.74% in Y class Cities and 9.87% in Z class towns.

The Commission is on record to state that the house rent factor in AICPI (IW) is on an average 15.27. The 6th CPC has indicated the factor at 8.67 and has been on record to state that the factor is not uniform at all places. The rates between Metro cities and small towns vary violently. This apart the Commission has applied a factor of 0.8 to all allowances, which are not cost indexed on the specious plea that wages per- se has been increased. While the Basic wages registered a paltry rise of 14% over a period of ten years (1.4% per annum) how justified is the stand of 7th CPC to apply a factor 0.8 to suppress the quantum of allowances is beyond comprehension. The Commission has proceeded with the assumption that the grant of 30,20 and 10% of the determined basic pay was a full and perfect reimbursement of expenses incurred by the Government employees on housing, which is undoubtedly erroneous as could be evidenced from the observation of the 6th CPC itself. Even if all these untenable contentions of 7 CPC and the unreliable statistics are taken into account, still it is clear that in order to maintain the present compensation level, the commission ought to have maintained the status quo in respect of rates of HRA and should not have reduced it by the application of 0.8 factor. We, therefore, request for the reasons adduced above, that the HRA may be retained at the levels determined by 6th CPC i.e. 30, 20, and 10 per cent of Basic pay for X,Y, Z class of cities and towns respectively.

Central Government Employees not to go on strike on May 23 over ‘7th Pay Commission allowances’

Central Government Employees not to go on strike on May 23 over ‘7th Pay Commission allowances’

New Delhi: Central government employees’ will not to go on strike on May 23 in protest at the “government inaction” on fulfilling their demands, including hike in allowance as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

No central government office will be closed at any part of the country and the trains will also be running on May 23.

The Confederation of central government employees, has temporarily postponed the strike scheduled on May 23 following assurance of government to hike allowances shortly.

“The strike has been put on hold for now following the assurance of government. However, the confederation will make sure that the genuine demands of the employees are met with,” a top leader of confederation, who did not wish to be named told us.

“In view of government’s assurance to hike allowances shortly, our strike on May 23 stands deferred,” he added.

The Confederation of central government employees had given the strike call protesting against the delay in allowance hike as per the revised 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The confederation is opposed to the government’s delaying tactics to hike allowances of central government employee.

After the government implemented the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission from January 1, 2016 in respect of basic pay and dearness allowances, the Committee on Allowances, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was constituted in June last year.

The 7th Pay Commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance, which triggered resentment among central government employees that governments complied with formation of the Committee on Allowances.

The Committee on Allowances had submitted its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

The report is being currently examined by the Department of Expenditure. It will be placed before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) set up to screen the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

The central government employees now get all allowances except dearness allowance at the old rates until the cabinet approval of higher allowances.
