OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub : Fixation of the pay of the pre-revised pay scale of 1S scale granted to candidates appointed as trainees on compassionate grounds in the Seventh Central Pay Commission (7th CPC) – reg.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Department’s 0.M.No.14014/02/2012-Estt(D) dated 16.01.2013 containing consolidated instructions on the subject of compassionate appointments. With regard to appointment of candidates not immediately meeting the educational standards as trainees these instructions provide as under:-

“In exceptional circumstances Government may consider recruiting persons not immediately meeting the minimum educational standards. Government may engage them as trainees who will be given the regular pay bands and grade pay only on acquiring the minimum qualification prescribed under the recruitment rules. The emoluments of these trainees, during the period of their training and before they are absorbed in the Government as employees, will be governed by the minimum of the – 1S pay band Rs.4440-7440 without any grade pay. In addition, they will be granted all applicable Allowance, like Dearness Allowances, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance at the admissible rates. The same shall be calculated on the minimum -IS pay band without any grade pay. The period spent in the -1S pay band by the future recruits will not be counted as service for any purpose as their regular service will start only after they are placed in the pay band PB-1 or Rs.5200-20200 along with grade pay of Rs.1800.”

2. The 7th CPC has not provided any replacement scale for 1S pay, band of Rs.4440- 7440 without any grade pay which is granted to trainees appointed under the scheme for compassionate appointment. The matter was taken up with the Department of Expenditure and it has now been decided by the Government that Level-1 of the Pay Matrix introduced on implementation of the 7th CPC Report be the replacement for the pre-revised- 1S scale. The pay of those governed by the 1S scale may be revised by using the Fitment Factor of 2.57 for placement in Level-1 in conformity with the Rule, 7 of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. All pre – revised pay stages lower than pre-revised pay of Rs.7,000 in the pre-revised 1S scale shall not be considered for determining the benefit of bunching, on the same lines as has been clarified by this Department’s 0.M dated 03.08.2017 on application of the benefit on account of bunching.

7th Pay Commission – Government Hikes Dress Allowance for Diplomats, SPG Officers

7th Pay Commission – Government Hikes Dress Allowance for Diplomats, SPG Officers

The dress allowance given to diplomats and elite Special Protection Group (SPG) officers, entrusted with the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former prime ministers and their families, have been hiked considerably on the recommendations of 7th pay commission.

The move comes on the recommendation of the Seventh Pay Commission. SPG officers during operational duties would get Rs.27,800 annually and on non-operational work would get Rs.21,225 a year as dress allowance, according to an official order.

Before the implementation of the 7th pay commission recommendation, the officers were getting Rs.9,000 annually as uniform allowance. The SPG guards Modi, former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, her children Rahul and Priyanka, among others.

The pay commission had in its report recommended an annual grant of Rs.10,000 as dress allowance. The panel’s report was examined by a Committee on Allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa. The Seventh Central Pay Commission examined 196 allowances given to various categories of central government employees.

“Outfit allowance, paid to Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officers and employees will continue to be provided as before, is enhanced by 50%,” the order issued recently by the finance ministry said. The IFS officers were getting Rs.5,625 to Rs.10,625 per posting abroad, depending on their grade, as uniform allowance.

The uniform allowance given to all categories of employees was recommended to be abolished as a separate grant by the pay commission, that had recommended it is subsumed in the newly-proposed dress allowance. Officers of the Indian Army, Air Force, Navy, central armed police forces, central police organisations and coast guards would get a dress allowance of Rs.20,000 per year.

Except for the Navy and the Coast Guard, other officers were getting an initial annual allowance of Rs.21,000 and a renewal grant of Rs.4,500 (payable every three years). Those in the Navy and the Coast Guard were entitled for an initial grant of Rs.24,000 and then Rs.7,500 (payable every three years).

Military Nursing Service officers and those in Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Daman and Diu and Dadra and Nagar Haveli Police Service (DANIPS) would get Rs.15,000 annually as dress allowance. The MNS and the DANIPS officers were getting initial grants of Rs.10,500 and Rs.7,200 respectively. They were also entitled for renewal grants of Rs2,250 and Rs.3,000 respectively (payable every three years).

Executive staff of customs, Indian Corporate Law Service officers, legal officers in National Investigation Agency, Bureau of Immigration personnel in Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Amritsar, Kolkata and all other foreigners entry checkpoints, among others, would get Rs.10,000 every year as the dress allowance. These were getting initial grants between Rs.1,500 and Rs.2,000 and then replacement grants between Rs.1,000 and Rs.1,250 per annum, depending on their post.

Other categories of staff who were supplied uniforms and were required to wear them regularly like trackmen, running staff of the Indian Railways and staff car drivers among others would get Rs.5,000 annually. Nurses would get Rs.1,800 per month as the dress allowance. They were getting Rs.750 per month. Allowances related to maintenance, washing of uniform are subsumed in dress allowance and will not be payable separately, it said.

“The amount of dress allowance shall be credited to the salary of employees directly once a year in the month of July,” the order said, adding that the new charges take effect from 1 July, 2017. The rates of dress allowance would go up by 25% each time the Dearness Allowance rises by 50%.

The clothing allowance, kit maintenance allowance, washing allowance, robe allowance, robe maintenance allowance, outfit allowance, shoe allowance and uniform allowance given to select categories of employees were recommended by the pay panel to be abolished as a separate grant, and be subsumed in the dress allowance.

7th Pay Commission: Government mulling over hike in pay without arrears

7th Pay Commission: Government mulling over hike in pay without arrears

Government is mulling an increase in the hike in pay to central government employees beyond 7th pay commission recommendations, a top Finance Ministry official, who did not wish to be named told The Sen Times here today.

Government will come out with a decision in this regard soon after consulting finance experts and weighing its pros and cons, he said.

Government is now considering to make only pay hike for its employees.

“The financial advisers of the government believe it could be tough to give arrears of the hike in pay as the government has been worried after the April-June GDP growth slipped to a three-year low of 5.7 percent but government believes it will bounce back in the second quarter. Among others, it observed that this year’s fiscal math is already stressed as public spending was front-loaded to offset slower private sector participation and cushion the impact of GST roll-out”, he revealed.

“All round development is possible only hike in basic pay with fitment factor 3.00 and minimum pay will be raised to Rs 21,000,” he said.

The 7th Pay Commission, led by Justice A K Mathur, earlier proposed minimum basic pay from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000 per month while the maximum basic pay from Rs 80,000 to Rs 2.5 lakh, which have been paid with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016.

The central government employees unions had expressed their dissatisfaction over the inadequate hike in basic pay in accordance to the pay panel recommendations.

They are demanding for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and the and asked to raising fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times.

Stating that National Anomaly Committee (NAC) headed by Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has been formed under pressure in September, 2016 to look into pay anomalies arising out of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations, the official said, “The NAC meeting is likely to be held in October to confirm to hike the basic pay with fitment factor 3.00.”

Pointing out that the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had promised to hike minimum pay after discussions with all stakeholders, he said, “government has made active efforts to fulfill the same”.

The proposal of hike in pay is likely to be sent to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley from NAC, after which it will be placed before the cabinet. Official believes it will come into effect within January’ 2018.

NFIR: Risk and Hardship Allowance – Railway Department

NFIR: Risk and Hardship Allowance – Railway Department

NFIR

No. 1/5(g)/Part V

Dated: 03/10/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

 Dear Sir,

Sub: Risk and Hardship Allowance – coverage of Safety category Staff such as Pointsmen, Gate Keepers, Operating Staff working in Yard etc., Electrical Staff in TRD, Staff of AC Coaches, EMUs, Electrical Workshops & staff working in General Services (Power and Train lighting) and Staff of S&T Department in Railways-reg.

Ref:   (i)  Railway Board’s letters No. PC-VII/2017/I/7/5/4 dated 10/08/2017.

         (ii)  NFIR’ s letter No. I/5(g)/Part V dated 29/08/2017.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to Federation’s letter dated 29/08/2017 wherein it was requested to take action for covering the remaining categories of P. Way staff such as Black Smiths, Welders etc., for payment of Risk & Hardship Allowance as their duties/responsibilities are also risky and hardships prone due to the fact that they are required to work physically on the P. Way tracks and that the 7th CPC has unfortunately failed to consider the role of these staff in laying/maintenance of Railway tracks. However, decision for payment of Risk & Hardship Allowance in favour of these P. Way staff working (Black Smith, Welders etc.,) is yet to be taken by Board. A copy of Federation’s letter dated 29/08/2017 on the subject is enclosed for ready reference.

Further to above, Federation finds that the jobs performed by Pointsmen, Traffic Gate Keepers, Traffic Assistants (Operating Department – working in Yards, stations etc.,), Staff of TRD/OHE, AC Coaches, EMU Car Sheds, Electrical Workshops, General Services and S&T Staff are also risky consequently they are prone to accidents and health hazards. These categories have not been covered for Risk & Hardship Allowance under the Risk & Hardship Matrix (Cell R3H2) due to the reason that the 7th CPC had failed to give weightage to the nature of duties and responsibilities being performed by these staff. The Railway Board also has not taken initiative to highlight the Risk and Hardship conditions before the Committee on Allowances headed by the Finance Secretary, Government of India.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly arrange to initiate action for covering P. Way Staff such as Black Smiths, Welders, Helpers, Pointsmen, Traffic. Gate Keepers, Traffic Assistants (Operating Department), Electrical Staff working in TRD/OHE, AC Coaches, EMU Car Sheds, Electrical Workshops, General Services and S&T Staff under Risk and Hardship Matrix (Cell R3H2) for payment of Risk & Hardship Allowance @ Rs. 2700/- p.m. Action taken in the matter may kindly be apprised to the Federation soon.

Yours faithfully,
S/d,

7th Pay Commission : Payment of Washing Expenditure to Industrial Employees with revised rate – BPMS requests

7th Pay Commission : Payment of Washing Expenditure to Industrial Employees with revised rate – BPMS requests

BHARATIYA PRATIRAKSHA MAZDOOR SANGH
(AN ALL INDIA FEDERATION OF DEFENCE WORKERS)
(AN INDUSTRIAL UNIT OF B.M.S.)

REF: BPMS / MOD / Allowances / 48A (7/2/R)

Dated: 01.10.2017

To,
The Secretary,
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
South Block, DHQ PO,
New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Payment of “Washing Expenditure” to Industrial Employees with revised rate.

Respected Sir,

With due regards, it is submitted that the industrial personnel in Min of Defence have been authorized for protective clothing/garments such as water-proofs, warm overcoats, overall, Dangries, Apron and protective accessories such as gum boots, boiler suits, goggles and gauntlets etc. These protective clothing & accessories are being issued to the specified categories whose duties require the issue of these accessories. Protective garments and accessories are provided either as a protection against inclement weather for those who works out-doors or against hazards such as are encountered in factories etc (kindly refer Para 1 & 2 of Chapter 64 – Staff Amenities, 3rd CPC Report and Para 26.44 of 4th CPC Report).

For the washing of some of these protective clothing garments, all the concerned industrial workers employed in Army Ordnance Corps were granted ‘Washing Allowance’ Rs. 4/ per month per worker and this amount was revised to Rs. 8/- per month vide MoD letter No. 82147/P.CIo/OS- 10A/2876/D(O-II), Dated 08 Sep. 1998 (copy enclosed).

Later, a corrigendum was issued vide MoD Letter No. 82147/P.CIo/OS-10A/1626/D(O-II), Dated 06 May 1999 (copy enclosed) to define that “Washing Allowance” mentioned in the letter dated 08.09.1998 will be “Washing Expenditure”. In due course, this “Washing Expenditure” has been revised on the introduction of subsequent Central Pay Commissions.

Now, on the recommendation of 7th CPC “Washing Allowance” being granted for the washing of uniform has been abolished and subsumed in dress allowance in respect of Nurses as per DoE, Min of Fin, Resolution No. 11-1/2016-IC, Dated 06.07.2017. It has to be kept in the mind that the “Washing Expenditure” being granted to industrial personnel for washing of protective clothing has not been abolished or subsumed in the dress allowance and there is no mention of “Washing Expenditure” in the 7th CPC’s Report or in the Resolution of Govt of India dated 06.07.2017.

In such circumstances, you are requested to take appropriate action so that entitled industrial employees may be granted the “Washing Expenditure” unflagging with revised rate.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours
Enclosed: As mentioned
(MUKESH SINGH)
Secretary/BPMS &
Member, JCM-II Level Council (MOD)

Pay anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways and pay disparity with other Supervisory cadres of the Central Government services

7th CPC Pay Anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Railway Accounts with other Central Government Service: All India Railway Accounts Staff Association writes to Ministry of Finance:

Chennai
09-2017

To
Sri ARUN JAITLEY
Honorable Minister for finance,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Pay anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways and pay disparity with other Supervisory cadres of the Central Government services.

The All India Railway Accounts staff Association while deposing before the 7th CPC had brought to the notice of the Commission that subsequent to the acceptance of the VI CPC recommendations a peculiar anomaly arose where a junior drawing higher Grade Pay than the Senior in the cadre of Section Officer (Accounts). The Committee of the 7th Pay Commission observed that the above anomalous situation purely arose on circumstantial grounds and needs to be rectified. Thus in its report, the Commission found merit in the above contention and recommended that Seniors must be given the benefit of stepping up and further in line with their recommendations for organized Accounts cadres, it further recommended that Section Officer (Accounts) Railways in GP Rs. 4800 should be upgraded on completion of four years service, to the existing GP5400 (PB-2) viz., level 9 in the Pay Matrix, on non functional basis. ( Ref: Para No 11.40.83 of 7th CPC).

The 7th Central Pay Commission acknowledged that the skill sets of the Organized Accounts cadres are fairly higher and the Organized Accounts Cadre have to compulsorily pass various stringent examinations for promotions. Moreover, Sr. Section Officer ( Accounts) had been assigned complete parity with Section Officers (SO) of the Central Secretariat Service (CSS) and they had been granted the pay scale of Rs.6500-10500 (S-12) w.e.f.01-01-1996 in accordance with 6th CPC. Further, it was also noticed that parity between Organized Accounts and the cadre of Section Officers of CSS was disturbed by granting non functional up gradation to GP Rs. 5400 (PB-3) after four years of service to Section Officers of CSS only. The Commission also noted that , non-functional up-gradation from GP Rs. 4800 to GP. Rs. 5400 (PB-3) on completion of four years of service, has been accorded to a number of posts by the Govt. of India in 2008. The Commission also found no reason and justification to deprive the benefit of up gradation to GP Rs. 5400 to the officers of the Organized Accounts Cadres who are in GP RS. 4800.

Thus, the Pay Commission recommended that, all officers in the Organized Accounts Cadres ( in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, Defence Accounts Department, Indian Civil Accounts Organization, Railways, Posts and Telecommunications) who are in GP Rs. 4800, should be upgraded on completion of four years of service to GP 5400 (PB-2) viz. pay level 9 in the Pay matrix ( Para 11.12.140 of 7th CPC.)

To utter dismay, the Government of India while accepting the recommendations of the Pay Commission on up-gradation of posts, left out the Ministry of Railways and Defense for non functional up-gradation GP 5400(PB-3) after four years of service for the categories of AAOs (Finance Division of Defense, Ministry of Defense) and Senior Section Officer (Accounts) Senior Traveling Inspector of Accounts and Senior Inspector of Stores Accounts, Ministry of Railways with the remarks that it will be examined by DOPT for taking a comprehensive view in the matter`. The DOPT took almost nine months and transferred the issue on 7th April 2017 to the Ministry of Finance(Expenditure). In other words benefit of Up gradation to GP 5400 after completion of four years of service has been granted to all other Organized Accounts Cadres of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, Indian Civil Accounts Organization and Posts and Telecommunication.

The Ministry of Defense in their recent ID Note No 369/C/2017 dated 23-3-2017 also recommended that above benefit be extended to the Assistant Accounts Officer (AAO) of Defense Accounts Department, On the other hand, DOPT in their communication ID note No.1198678 /16 – Est (Pay-1) dated 2-2-2017 to the Executive Director Pay Commission 111, Ministry of Railways, advised the Ministry of Railways to consult Department of Expenditure in terms of Government of India (Allocation of Business Rules). It shows the indifferent approach of Government towards Railway Accounts Employee.

The Supervisory Cadre of the Accounts Department of the Railways is also entrusted with the responsibilities of presenting the Railway Accounts on widely accepted accrual based Accounting in addition to presenting the Government accounts as per requirements laid down in the Constitution of India , as announced by Hon’ble Minister of Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhu, in his budget speech.

It would be highly appreciated, if the benefit of grant of GPRs. 5400 is extended to Supervisory Cadre of the Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways on completion of four years of service in GP Rs. 4800 who are the only left in this case. This will also end pay parity between the organised accounts cadres of the Government of India.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,
(REJI GEORGE)
General Secretary

Recompute 7th CPC Minimum Pay & Multiplication Factor – Anomaly in computation of Minimum Wage: Agenda Item for NAC Meeting

Recompute 7th CPC Minimum Pay & Multiplication Factor – Anomaly in computation of Minimum Wage: Agenda Item for NAC Meeting

Item No 1

Anomaly in computation of Minimum Wage

In Para 1.29 of Chapter 1 of the 7th CPC report, the larned Chairman of the Commission Justice Shri AK Mathur has approvingly quoted the following observation their Lordship in the Supreme Court in the case of Bhupendranath Hazarika and Another Vs. State of Assam (SC 2013 (2) Sec.516)

“…….. It should always be borne in mind that legitimate aspirations of the employees are not guillotined and a situation is not created where hopes end in despair. Hope for everyone is gloriously precious and that a model employer should not convert it to be deceitful and treacherous by playing a game of chess with their seniority. A sense of calm sensibility and concerned sincerity should be reflected in every step. An atmosphere of trust has to prevail and when the employees are absolutely sure that their trust shall not be betrayed and they shall be treated with dignified fairness then only the concept of good governance can be concretized. We say no more.”

Naturally the recommendations of the 7th CPC ought to have been in consonance with the spirit of the observations made in Para 1.29, While determining the Minimum Pay (Chapter 4.2). The Commission is on record to state that it shall abide by the formula of Dr WR Aykroyd as amended by Supreme Court in the case of Workmen represented by Secretary Vs. Management of Reptakos Brett and Co. Ltd and Anr. on 31st October, 1991 (Equivalent citations: 1992 AIR 504, 1991 SCR Supl. (2) 129). In its submissions made to the Govt, the Staff Side had pointed out the errors and omissions crept in the computation of Minimum wage and its consequential impact. The Commission’s recommendations in this regard was clearly in violation of what has been stated in para 1.29 (quoted above). We annex for ready reference the extracts from our own submissions pertaining to this issue.

Our submission to Cabinet Secretary on 7th CPC:

“We are not in agreement with the methodology adopted by the 7th CPC in computing the minimum WAGE. We give hereunder briefly the reasons thereof.

The retail prices of the commodities quoted by the Labour bureau is irrational, imaginary and even absurd in respect of certain articles at certain places. The Staff Side had objected to the adoption of those rates in its meeting with the Commission on 9th June, 2015.

The adoption of 12 monthly average of the retail prices is contrary to Dr. Aykroyd formula. Same is the case with the reduction effected by the Commission on housing and social obligation factors. The house rent allowance is not a full compensation of the expenditure incurred by an employee for obtaining an accommodation. Therefore, no reduction on that count in arriving at the minimum wage is permissible. We may cite the minimum wage computation made by the 3rd CPC in this regard. The employees were in receipt of HRA even at that time. But still the 3rd CPC, and rightly so, adopted the 7.5% as the factor for housing. In respect of the addition to be made for children education and social obligation as per the Supreme Court judgement, (25%) the Commission has reduced the percentage to 15% on the specious plea that the employees are separately given children education allowance. The Children education allowance is not a full reimbursement of the expenses one has to incur. After the liberalization of the Education Sector where private parties were allowed to set up universities and colleges, the expenses for education had increased heavily. No concession or allowance is granted to the employees for educating the children beyond the higher secondary levels. The earlier Pay Commission has only tried to compensate a little in the increasing cost of education and that too at the primary level, since even the Governmental institutions had started charging abnormal tuition and other fees.

The website maintained for the Agriculture Ministry depicts the retail prices of commodities which go into the basket of minimum wage computation. Even though the rates quoted by them vary from the real retail prices in the market, it provides a different picture. If one is to take the rates quoted by them for different cities and make an all India average of the prices as on 1.7.2015, it will work out to Rs. 10810. It will result in the computation of the minimum wage of Rs. 19880. Adding 25% for arriving at the MTS scale, it will rise to Rs. 24850. To convert the same as on 1.1.2016, 3% will be added as suggested by the 7th CPC. The final computation will be Rs. 25,596, when rounded off shall be Rs. 26000.

The Andhra Pradesh State Pay Commission in its report has taken the commodity prices at Rs. 9830,- as on 1.7.2013 which works out to a minimum wage of Rs. 18080. The wage of MTS will then be Rs. 22600 as on 1.7.2013. The Corresponding figure for 1.1.2016 shall be Rs. 26758, rounded off to Rs. 27000.

The Staff side had computed the minimum wage as on 1.1.2014 at Rs. 26,000, taking the commodity price at Rs. 11344. The rates were taken on the basis of the actual retail prices in the market as on 1.1.2014 (average prices of 8 Cities in the country) substantiated by the documentary evidence of Cash bill obtained from the concerned vendors. As on 1.12016, the minimum wage work out to Rs. 29339, rounded off to Rs. 30,000.

The 5th CPC adopted the rate of growth in the economy (as reflected in the increase in the per capita net national produce at factor cost) over a period of ten years to arrive at the increase required to be made to arrive at the minimum wage. The per capita NNP at factor cost registered an increase of 65.28% over a period of ten years in 2013-14. If we apply the same percentage to the emoluments (Pay +DA) as on 1.1.2016 (assuming that DA will be 125% as on that date), the minimum wage as on 1.1.2016 for an MTS will have to be Rs. 26030, rounded off to Rs. 27000.

In para 4.2.9 of the report, the Commission has given a table depicting the percentage increase provided by the successive Pay Commissions, according to which the 2nd CPC had made a paltry increase of 14.2%. The 3rd CPC gave a rise of 20.6, 4th 27.6, 5th 31.0 and 6th CPC 54%. While the per centage increase had been in ascending order all along, the 7th CPC has sought to reverse that trend ostensibly for reasons unknown. It was the meager increase of 14% provided for by the 2nd CPC that triggered the volatile situation in the civil service and led to all India strike encompassing all employees which lasted for 5 days in 1960.

In the case of Bank, Insurance and many other Public Sector Undertakings wage revision takes place once in 5 years. In the recently concluded agreement, Bank employees were provided more than 15% increase.

After the implementation of the Pay Commission Report the AP State Employees have been given a wage structure based on a minimum wage for above the level of Central Government employees. In their case also wage revision does take place once in 5 years.

It could be seen from the above that the computation of minimum wage by the 7 CPC is prima facie wrong and computed on untenable premises and incorrect data. The minimum wage therefore requires re-computation and revision. Once the minimum wage gets revised, the fitment formula, the multiplication factor applied for determining the pay levels and the pay matrix itself will have to be consequently revised.”

It could be seen from the above extract that the Minimum Wage as on 1.1.2016 could not have been computed at less than Rs 26000/- and consequently the multiplication factor ought to have been at 3.714. It is, therefore, demanded that the Minimum Wage and multiplication factor may be recomputed and Pay Level and Pay matrix changed in accordance with the revised minimum wage.

4. Dr. M. Raghaviiah, General Secretary, NFIR staied in his introduction speech that the definition of anomaly should be interpreted liberally. The official side and the staff side should jointly workout a consensus to identify the issues coming wiihin the definition of ‘anomaly’ to ensure that Railway employees are given justice’ He said that careful examination and ground realities would reveal that anomalies arisen in Railways specific categories are needed to he addressed judiciously. He also brought out following issues/suggestions.

  • During the implementation of 6th CPC after due discussions Ministry of Railways sent a detailed proposal in respect of various anomalies especially in respect of pay structure of Technical Supervisors to Ministry of Finance and DoP&T. However, Ministry of Railways failed to place these proposals before 7th CPC.
  • Till the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations the pay structure of Technical Supervisors were placed on a higher pedestal on comparison With pay structure of the corresponding categories of Accounts Department. With the implementation of 6th CPC pay structure the relatives in the case of the Technical Supervisors category of Indian Railways got disturbed and 7th CPC also did not address this core issue which is affecting thousands of employees.
  • Various proposals/references sent to the Ministry of Finance and Department of Personnel and Training are not getting addressed and thereby the issues remain unresolved. As such Ministry of Railways may try find out an in house mechanism for addressing these issues. In support of this, past precedent of 1997 was quoted.
  • Certain factual inaccuracies have crept into the 7th CPC Report which need to be addressed. For example, though there was demand from the federations to raise the entry qualification in respect of Assistant Loco to Diploma as recommended by Dr.Anil Kakodar, Chairman, HLSRC, wheras, the 7th CPC had wrongly quoted in its report that Federations have demanded Degree qualification. He cited para 11.40.63 of the 7th CPC report and wanted DAC to take note of this for appropriate action.

5. W.r.t the points raised by Dr. Raghavaiah, the Offical Side clarified that all the factual position and historical background were brought before 7th CPC w.r.t the anomalies existing in respect of the pay structure of Technical supervisors.

6. Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra, General Secretary/AIRF took up the issue regarding upgradation of pay structure in respect of Accounts, and CMA cadre as per the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission and stated that there has been no action on implementing these recommendations.

7. As regards, AIRF’s is Sue regarding upgradation of pay structure of various categories of Indian Railways, it was stated by Official Side that while approving the recommendations of 7th CPC, Ministry of Finance in its resolution dated 25.07.2016 decided to refer the recommendations of 7th CPC to upgrade the pay structure of thirteen categories in various Ministries including Accounts and CMA cadres of Indian Railways to DoP&T for taking a comprehensive view. In pursuance of the decision of Ministry of Finance the issue was referred to DoP&T enclosing all the communications made by Ministry of Railways with 7th CPC and implementation Cell in this regard. DoP&T after due consideration, in the first week of April 2017 returned these proposals stating that in terms of Transaction of Business Rule (TBR) the upgradation of pay structure is an issue coming under the domain of Department of Expenditure and accordingly advised to refer the issue to Department of Expenditure for taking a decision. The matter is under submission to Board for sending to Department of Expenditure. While acknowledging the 7th CPC recommendation and the Federation’s demand in this case, the Official Side also pointed out that historical relatives across cadres have to be kept in mind.

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees blame government for delay in higher allowances implementation

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees blame government for delay in higher allowances implementation

New Delhi: : A top most central government employees’ union leader on Friday said central government had been the villain in the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in respect of higher allowances and employees had every right to demand arrears on higher allowances.

“The government had delayed in the implementation of the higher allowances. It had failed to handle the financial situation of the employees, according to arrears on higher allowances should be paid,” the leader said.

“Earlier the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had claimed it must implement after four months of the basic pay hike but it failed to come true,” the leader added.

More than 18 to 19 months had passed since the 7th pay commission report was submitted and twelve months had elapsed since the union cabinet approved the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for salary hike of central government employees, but the Cabinet approved the recommendations on allowances on June 28 this year, which are being paid to the employees from July, 2017 without arrears.

The government has given higher basic pay in August 2016 with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016 to its employees on the recommendations of the 7th pay commission but the hike in allowances other than dearness allowance had referred to the ‘Committee on Allowances’ headed by the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa for examination as the pay commission had recommended of abolishing 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances.

Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa had said in October 2016, “We are ready to submit our report, when the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley calls up.”

But the government had gave extension to the committee up to February 22, 2017 on the pretext of demonetisation and the government said that the cash crunch was the reason behind the delay in announcing higher allowances.

The announcement of assembly elections in five states had also given an excuse for the government as it couldn’t announce pay hikes till the model code of conduct is in place up to March 8.

The government was using delaying tactics to save the government money to pay higher allowances without arrears from August 16.

The delayed implementation of allowances have saved the government nearly Rs 40,000 crore.

The delay in the implementation of allowances is chiefly because of the financial gains of the government, while financial condition of the government is very sound.

The delay in implementation of the higher allowances has caused tremendous irritation and frustration among employees and they also expressed their resentment over the the announcement of non payment of arrears on allowances.
