Equal Basic Pension Under 7th CPC

EQUAL BASIC PENSION UNDER SEVENTH CPC

The 7th Central Pay Commission had recommended two formulations for revision of pension of employees who retired before 01.01.2016 and the employees were given option to choose whichever

formulation was beneficial. As per the first formulation, the Commission recommended for revision of pension based on notional pay arrived at by adding the number of increments an employee had earned in the appropriate level while in service.

This formulation was later on examined by a Committee under the Chairmanship of Secretary, Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare. The Committee recommended that instead of counting of increments earned in the retiring scale and applying directly to the 7th Pay Commission Pay Matrix, a more scientific and rational method would be to refix pay in each successive Pay Commission as per the formula for revision of pay right up to the 7th Pay Commission.

This method of fixing notional pay and pension would benefit a larger number of pensioners as compared to the increment method which benefits only a select segment of pensioners who served for a longer period in the retiring scale without being promoted to a higher grade. This has been accepted by the Government and appropriate orders have been issued.

INDIAN COUNCIL OF AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH
KRISH BHAWAN, NEW DELHI-110001

 F. No. 1(4)/2017-Per.IV

Dated: March 27th, 2018

To

The Directors/Project Directors of ICAR Research Institutes/N RC s/Project Directorates/Bureaux

 

Subject :- Revision of Pay of Scientists of ICAR in light of scheme of revision of pay of teachers in Universities notified by MHRD vide notification dated 02.11.2017 following revision of pay scales of Central Government employees on recommendations of VIIth CPC.

 

Sir,

I am directed to state that Indian Council of Agricultural Research (lCAR) has decided to revise the pay scales of Scientists in light of scheme of revision of pay of teachers in Universities notified by MHRD vide notification No.1-7/2015-U.II(l) dated 02.11.2017 following revision of pay scales of Central Government employees on the recommendations of the VIIth CPC. as accepted by the Government of India. The revised pay scales and other provisions are as under:

 

2. Revision of Pay Scales:

2.1 The revised pay scales shall be exactly similar to the revised pay scales given as per the M/o HRD letter dated 02.11.2017 strictly in accordance with the equation between the existing pay scales in case of ICAR Scientists and the pay scales applicable to teachers under the UGC framework immediately before 01.01.2016. and no deviation is allowed.

 

2.2 For fixation of pay of Scientists in the Pay Matrix as on 01.01.2016. the existing pay (Pay in the Pay Band plus RGP) in the pre-revised structure as on 31.12.2015 shall be multiplied by a factor of 2.57. The figure so arrived at is to be located in the Research Level corresponding to the Scientists” Pay Band and RGP in the new Pay Matrix (Annexure – I).  If a Cell identical with the figure so arrived at is available in the appropriate Research Level. that Cell shall be the Revised Pay: otherwise the next higher Cell in that Research Level shall be the Revised Pay of the Scientist. If the figure arrived at in this manner is less than the first Cell in that Research Level. then the Pay shall be fixed at the first Cell of that Research Level.

 

If a situation arises whenever more than two stages are bunched together. one additional increment equal to 3% may be given for every two stages bunched. and pay fixed in the subsequent Cell in the Pay Matrix.

 

2.3 The revised pay scales are as under:

2.3.1

Revision-of-Pay-of-Scientists-of-ICAR

2.3.2

Revision-of-Pay-of-Scientists-of-ICAR

3. Implementation Date:

The date of implementation of the above revised pay shall be 1st January 2016.

 

4. Incentives for higher qualifications:

The incentive structure is built-in in the pay structure itself wherein those having M.Phil or PhD. degree or other higher qualifications will progress faster under CAS. Therefore. there shall be no incentives in the form of advance increments for obtaining the degrees of M.Phil or PhD or other higher qualifications.

 

5. Date of Increment:

5.1 The annual increments to each scientist would move up in the same Research Level. with a scientist moving from the existing Cell in the Research Level to the immediate next Cell in the same Research Level

 

5.2 There shall be two dates for grant of increments namely. 1st January and 1st July of every year. instead of existing date of 151 July. provided that a scientist shall be entitled to only one annual increment on either one of these two dates depending on the date of appointment or assessment promotion.

 

6. Fixation of Pay on Promotion:
When an individual gets a promotion. his/her new pay on promotion would be fixed in the Pay Matrix as follows:

On promotion. the scientist would be given a notional increment in his existing Research Level of Pay. by moving him/her to the next higher Cell at that level. The pay shown in this Cell would now be located in the new Research Level corresponding to the post to which he/she has been promoted. If a Cell identical with that pay is available in the new level, that Cell shall be the new pay; otherwise the next higher Cell in that level shall be the new pay of the scientist. If the pay arrived at in this manner is less than the first Cell in the new level. then the pay shall be fixed at the first Cell of that level.

 

7. Allowances for Scientists in ICAR:

As per Deptt. of Expenditure. Ministry of Finance ID Note No. 1(6)/E.III B/2017 dated 20.03.2018, revision of allowances including NPA shall not be made at present. and the same would be taken up for consideration only after allowances are revised by M/o HRD in case of teachers of Universities/Colleges under UGC framework. Therefore, all allowances will continue to be paid at the existing pay structure. as if. the pay had not been revised with effect from 01.01.2016.

 

8. Age of Superannuation:

The existing age of superannuation of ICAR scientist is 62 years and the same will continue.

9. 30% of the additional financial impact would be met by ICAR from its own resources.

 

10. An undertaking shall be taken from every employee to the effect that any excess payment made on account of incorrect fixation of pay in the revised Research Pay Level or grant of inappropriate Research Pay Level and Pay Cells or any other excess payment made shall be adjusted against the future payments due or otherwise to the beneficiary.

 

11. Appropriate action may be taken to revise the pay of the Scientists at the Institutes as per the terms and conditions laid down herein and in accordance with the instructions issued by Government of India from time to time and in consultation with the concerned Internal Finance Division/Unit.

This issues with the approval of Competent Authority after concurrence of Deptt. of Expenditure. Ministry of Finance vide ID Note No. l(6)/E.III B/2017 dated 20.03.2018.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,

Defence Accounts Department Releases Handbook on Pay & allowances of JCOs & ORs

Defence Accounts Department Releases Handbook on Pay & allowances of JCOs & ORs

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Defence

 

04-April-2018

DAD Releases Handbook on Pay & allowances of JCOs & ORs

The Defence Accounts Department is entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining the pay accounts of million plus Jawans and JCOs of Indian Army. The Pay Accounts Offices (PAOs) of this department are at the forefront of the concerted efforts that are being put in to ensure that these men get their correct dues within reasonable time frame.

An important requirement to meet the expectations of the end user and ensuring their contentment is that the JCOs/ORs understands their dues and their entitlement. If they further appreciate the processes involved in acceptance or denial of any dues, it would equip them with enough knowledge to have better awareness to contest entitlement inconsistencies, if any.

This handbook was conceptualized with the aim to provide more grasp on the rules of entitlement as well as to have complete transparency of procedures in the PAOs. This first edition contains all the procedures right from the inception stage of publishing and processing of the daily Part II orders, till the final processing and disbursement of entitlements.

The book also details the functional boundaries and constraints of PAOs. The chapters are so ordered that they lay down entitlement parameters in a user-friendly manner. Each of the chapter seeks to enlighten the JCOs/OR on the documentary and procedural requirements for processing an entitlement.

The audit and procedural requirements behind processing of Contingent Bill items, AFPP Fund claims, MACPs, transfer/deputation, leave/TD etc., are all detailed in distinct chapters of the handbook. The deductions from pay and allowances, bank account details, etc. are also elaborated in the book.

In a unique separate chapter interpretation of the Monthly Pay Slip has been elaborated. It details item-wise description of notifications provided in the Pay Slip, which, it is expected, would not only ameliorate grievances of Jawans at the inception stage but also give him confidence regarding legitimacy of the entitlements so granted. A chapter on general FAQs is also included for assistance and ready references

The book has sought to cover all the parameters of pay and allowances of JCOs/ORs, incorporating the 7th CPC entitlements as well, wherever available on the date of publication. This book in pdf format is also available on the website of PAO(OR) AMC & 11 GRRC as well as of PCDA(CC), Lucknow.

7th Pay Commission News latest: Over 8.77 lakh Gujarat Government Employees and Pensioners to get arrears from March and Odisha govt too.

7th Pay Commission News latest: Over 8.77 lakh Gujarat Government Employees and Pensioners to get arrears from March and Odisha govt too..

The Gujarat government on Friday, March 2, announced that all government employees and pensioners will receive arrears from the 7th Central Pay Commission this month onward.

The payment will be made in three monthly installments – alternate months — said Gujarat Deputy Chief Minister and Finance Minister Nitin Patel in the assembly. This will benefit about 4.65 lakh Gujarat government employees and over 4.12 lakh pensioners, setting the exchequer back by about Rs Rs 3,279 crore.

“As the seventh pay commission was implemented with retrospective effect, employees and pensioners are eligible for arrears. The arrears will be paid from March onward and in three installments every alternate months. Employees will get arrears for seven months and pensioners for nine. These benefits will go to 4.65 lakh employees and 4.12 lakh pensioners of the Gujarat government,” the Times of India quoted Patel as saying.

On Friday, the Odisha government also said that the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission would be implemented in regards to employees and pensioners of public sector undertakings in the state.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik asked the department to revise salaries as per the recommendations of the seventh pay commission and this will come into effect from January 1, 2016, reported the Press Trust of India.

The state government had implemented the recommendations for government employees on August 29, 2017, but PSU employees were still waiting for the order.

The Central government had approved the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission in June 2016. The minimum pay was raised to Rs 18,000 a month from Rs 7,000. The employees had demanded a raise in minimum salary to Rs 26,000 and it was also said that the figures could be raised to Rs 21,000 per month. However, nothing was confirmed.

Sir,

Please find enclosed a copy of the Minutes of the meeting held under the Chairmanship of Joint Secretary (Establishment) on Thursday the 11th January, 2018 at 1500 hours in Room No. 190, conference Room, North Block, New Delhi with the representatives of Staff Side, NC(JCM) for information and necessary action.

2. As per discussion in the above meeting, Staff Side may please reconsider their views on Item No. 7. A copy of the recording during the meeting enclosed for per usual.

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(D.K. Sengupta)

Deputy Secretary to the Government of India
Tel. 23040255

MINUTES OF THE MEETING HELD ON 11.01.2018 TO DISCUSS THE ADMISSIBILITY OF THE AGENDA ITEMS RECEIVED FROM THE STAFF SIDE FOR DISCUSSION IN THE NATIONAL ANOMALY COMMITTEE (NAC) FOR THE 7TH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION

A meeting was held under the chairmanship of Shri G.D. Tripathi, Joint Secretary (Establishment), Department of Personnel & Training with the representatives of Staff Side of the National Anomaly Committee and senior officers from the other Ministries/Departments concerned at 3.00 p.m. on 11.01.2018 in Room No. 190, North Block, DoPT, New Delhi to consider the admissibility of the 18 items of anomaly forwarded by the Staff-Side of the National Council of JCM for settlement through discussion at the NAC constituted after the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The list of participants is at Annexure.

2. The Chairman welcomed the representatives of the Staff-Side of the National Anomaly Committee and asked Deputy Secretary (JCA) to briefly inform the participants the purpose for convening this meeting.

3. Deputy Secretary (JCA) informed that following the acceptance of the recommendations – to the extent they have been – of the 7th Central Pay Commission by the Government, the National Anomaly Committee has been constituted by DoPT. Subsequently, on receipt of a representation from the Staff Side, NC(JCM), the definition of what would constitute an anomaly has been revised and notified. Therefore, as per the revised scope of definition, anomaly will include the following cases;

a) Where the Official-Side and the Staff-Side are of the opinion that any recommendation is in contravention of the principle or the policy enunciated by the Seventh Central Pay Commission itself without the Commission assigning any reason;

b) Where the maximum of the Level in the Pay Matrix corresponding to the applicable Grade Pay in the Pay Band under the pre-revised structure as notified vide CCS(RP) Rules 2016, is less than the amount an employee is entitled to be fixed at, as per the formula for fixation of pay contained in the said Rules;

c) Where the Official side and the Staff Side are of the opinion that the vertical and horizontal relativities have been disturbed as a result of the 7th Central Pay Commission to give rise to anomalous situation.

4. Deputy Secretary (JCA) mentioned that a letter dated 16.08.2017 had been received from Secretary, Staff-Side proposing to discuss 15 items in the National Anomaly Committee (NAC). Subsequently, another letter dated 31.08.2017 was also received proposing 3 additional items. On examining these 18 items against the three (03) yardsticks as stated in para-3 above, it was felt that while some agenda items clearly fall within the definition of ‘anomaly’, there are a few which cannot be termed ‘anomaly’ as such, bordering more, as they are, on the side of ‘demands’. There are a few more which apparently by virtue of affecting the interests of one Department should rather be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committee. On sharing the findings of this Preliminary examination with the Secretary, Staff-Side, a communication was received from him suggesting inter-alia, besides giving their own reasons for retaining the same agenda – except one item – for the NAC deliberations, that a meeting be convened to discuss and finalize the items so as to to avoid delay in convening the NAC meeting.

5. The Chairman then requested the leader of the Staff-Side and other members to put across their points of view on the issue.

6. The Leader, Staff-Side, thanked the Chairman for convening the meeting at the suggestion of Secretary, Staff-Side and initiated the discussion by emphasising that the next meeting of the National Council under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary should be held urgently as more than 7 years have passed since the last such meeting was held. He referred to the background against which the JCM scheme has been institutionalized and stressed that the purpose of JCM is to avoid confrontation between the Government and its employees. He requested that the sentiments of the Staff-Side may be conveyed to the Cabinet Secretary so that the meeting of the National Council, JCM may be held without any further delay. He also suggested that the Cabinet Secretary should meet the Standing Committee of the National Council, JCM soon after the Republic Day celebrations so that the deliberations can be be held on all pending issues. The Leader, Staff-Side further stated that there are many issues arising out of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations which are still to be settled to the satisfaction of the Staff-Side. He particularly mentioned about the recommendations relating to New Pension Scheme, Minimum Pay, Fitment Formula, etc.

7. Secretary, Staff-Side also expressed similar views about lack of interaction between the Official-Side and the Staff-Side. He mentioned that the institutions of JCM machinery has become defunct and stated that the meetings of the Standing Committee and the National Council, JCM should be called without any further delay. He also mentioned that the Group of Ministers had met the staff representatives and given some assurances for favourable consideration regarding the Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula. But even after 1-1/2 years, no decision has been conveyed by the Government. He regretted that inspite of the report submitted by NPS Committee, nothing fruitful has been done for bringing new pensioners under defined and guaranteed pension scheme. He stated that based on the assurance given by the group of Ministers, the Staff Side had deferred the call for strike but now it is getting very difficult for them to control the resentments of the staff. He stressed the need for frequent interactions so that each side can appreciate the other’s views. He also mentioned that no decision has yet been conveyed on the 6th CPC related unresolved anomalies which, the Staff-Side feels, should be sent for arbitration as the Staff-Side has recorded its dissatisfaction on them.

(Action: D/o Pension & JCA Division, DoPT)

8. The Staff-Side members representing M/o Defence stated that they are on a hunger fast joining with the 4 lakhs Defence Civilian Employees to protest against the various decisions taken by Ministry of Defence against their interest. They lodged their protest aginst what they called ‘arbitary’ policy decisions made by the Government about outsourcing of jobs hitherto done in the ordince factories, converting Army Base Workshops to GOCO Model, closure of Station Workshops, Military Farms and Depots under Army Headquarters thereby rendering 31,000 Employees surplus including 9000 employees of Military Engineer Service, granting Uniform Allowance to the soldiers by stopping the practice of getting them stitched through almost 12000 Employees in 5 Ordnance Factories etc. This is against the assurance given by the Defence Ministry in the past to the Staff Side that the jobs being performed by ordnance factories would be outsourced. They also protested against the violation of the direction of Cabinet Secretary by the Ministry of Defence in that the Staff Side has not been consulted before deciding on outsourcing, closure, merger, declaring manpower surplus etc. They demanded that MoD may be directed to immediately hold discussions with the Staff Side and settle the issues in the interest of the Defence Industry and its employees

(Action: M/o Defence)

9. The Staff Side also raised the following issues:-

a) The demand of the Staff Side for extension of the date of option for switching over to 7th CPC Pay Scales from a date on which the employee got promotion/MACP is not yet settled. Necessary instructions may be issued in this regard.

(Action: Establishment Division, DoPT)

b) The Report of the NPS Committee even though submitted to the Government in August, 2017 the Staff Side is not yet given a copy of the same. The same may be given to the Staff Side and a meeting may also be held with the Staff Side by the Government before taking any decision on the recommendations of the NPS Committee.

(Action: D/o P & PW)

c) The Staff Side also pointed out what they felt arbitrariness of the decision of the Government to close down the various printing presses without even holding any discussion with the Staff Side. The employees have been asked to immediately get themselves, relived and join at faraway places. They added that assurances were given by the Cabinet Secretary at the National Council that the Government would discuss the problems faced by the staff and resolve the same in all cases when the Government decides to wind up any of its functions.

(Action: M/o Urban Development)

10. The Chairman stated that he has taken note of all the concerns expressed by the Leader, Staff-Side, Secretary Staff-Side and the other representatives of the Staff-Side. He stated that the work on finalizing the comments on the Agenda for the meeting with the National Council, JCM has been going on and another two weeks would be required to finalize the comments and thereafter the convenience of the Cabinet Secretary would be sought so that the meeting of the Standing Committee can be held in the month of February, 2018. He stated that the purpose of today’s meeting was to familiarize with the issues as well as to arrive at a mutually agreed decisions as to which of them should be taken up for discussion and settlement at the NAC so that the first meeting can be convened at the earliest. He further emphasised that the items on which the Government, has held a view different from that of the 7th CPC would not be taken up for discussion at the NAC since the Government decisions on them are well-thought-out and conscious ones. However, where there is a disagreement between what has been recommended and what the 7th CPC should have recommended as part of its policy/principles would figure in NAC discussion.

11. It was seen that there are seven (7) proposed items which clearly fall within the definition of ‘Anomaly’. At the conclusion of the discussions, the following was agreed to in respect of the remaining eleven (11) items:

Item No. Description Decision
1 Anomaly in computation of minimum wage In view of the response of Secretary, Staff-Side, the JCA Division will re-examine.
2 3% Increment in all stages In view of the response of Secretary, Staff-Side, the JCA Divison will re-examine
6 Remove Anomaly due to index rationalization In view of the response of Secretary, Staff-Side, the JCA Divison will re-examine
7 Anomaly arising from the decision to reject option No.1 in pension fixation Sent back to Staff-Side for reconsideration of its views
10 Minimum Pension The Staff-Side will take up this issue with the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare separately. This will not be treated as an anomaly.
11 Date of effect of Allowances- HRA, Transport

Allowance, CEA etc

Thil will be taken up separately as an item in the Standing Committee meeting
12. Implement the recommendation on Parity in Pay Scale between Sr. Auditors / Sr. Accountant of 1A & AD and organized Accounts with Assistant Section Officer of CSS. As this was already under examination in the Department of Personnel & Training it would not be taken up for

discussion in NAC at this stage. If it remains undecided at the later stage,

it will be included for discussion in NAC.

13 Parity in pay scales between Assistants/

Stenographers in field/ subordinate offices and Assistant Section Offices and Stenographers in CSS

Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 retired Running Staff

Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 retired Running Staff

NFIR

No.II/35/Part XIV

Dated:26/02/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Special attention: Executive Director (IR)

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 retired Running Staff-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. D-43/34/2017-F(E) III dated 24/01/2018.

Railway Board have issued orders vide letter dated 24/01/2018 with regard to Pension Revision/Parity in the case of pre-2016 retired Running Staff on Indian Railways. Federation feels sad to note that these instructions have not been endorsed to NFIR and no copy has been sent officially till date even though more than a month has passed. There have also been number of instances in the past when the important instructions mainly relating to establishment matters/staff issues not being endorsed to the Federation and this shows that there is some discrepancy in the working machinery in the Railway Board’s Office.

While expressing our unhappiness over the failures as above, NFIR requests the Railway Board to arrange to tighten the mechanism and see that all letters/instructions are endorsed to the NFIR and hard copies thereof delivered promptly.

So far as the contents of Board’s letter dated 24th January, 2018 are concerned, prima-facie, it is observed that the illustrations as well the principles adopted are not in conformity with the Government’s decision, resulting denial of legitimate pension revision and disappointment among retired Running Staff. These are required to be reviewed and the Federation will separately convey through another letter to the Railway Board, pointing out the deficiencies in the “illustrations” issued as Annexure to Board’s letter dated 24th January, 2018.

Federation further urges that the instuctions dated 24/01/2018 be kept in abeyance, pending detailed review.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,

7th CPC: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission

7th CPC: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission

7th-CPC-Travelling-Allowance-Rules

F.No.19030/1/2017-E.IV
Government of India
Department of Expenditure
E.IV Branch

North Block, New Delhi.
Dated 01st February, 2018

Office Memorandum

Sub: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

Consequent upon the issuance of this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 13.07.2017 regarding implementation of recommendations of 7th CPC on Travelling Allowance (TA), various references are being received in this Department seeking clarification regarding admissibility of Daily Allowance (DA) in case Govt. employee avails free boarding and lodging.

2. The 6th CPC had changed the old concept of Daily Allowance by introducing reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges on production of vouchers for the same. Since this was a new concept, therefore, option was given to the employees to choose either the old 5th CPC single rate of DA or the new system of DA based on reimbursement of expenses as per 6th CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to continue the concept of reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges with the exception that vouchers are not required to be produced for Food Bills.

3. The matter regarding admissibility of DA in case of free boarding and lodging, has been considered in this Department. Daily Allowance is given to the Govt. employees as a reimbursement of the expenditure incurred by him on tour for his stay, food and travel at that station. ln case of free boarding and lodging, the Govt. employee, if incurring any expenditure on local travel, can claim the same as per para 2 E (i) and (iii) of the Annexure to 0.M. of even No. dated 13.07.2017. The earlier system of giving 25% of DA is being discontinued. Also, after implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, the facility of DA at 5th CPC rates is done away with.

4. This is issued with the approval of Secretary (Expenditure). Hindi version is attached.

Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF

NFIR: Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF

No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC/ (Imp)/2016/R.B./Pt.II

Dated: 29/01/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF- reg.

Ref: (i)NFIR’s PNM item No.13/2017.

(ii)Railway Board’s file No.PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2-RBE No.93/2016 dated 02/08/2016 to GMs etc.,

(iii)NFIR’s letter No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 12/09/2016. 30/09/2016, 15/11/2016 & 28/11/2016.

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the PNM item No.13/2017 relating to upgradation of the following posts in Railways :

nfir-7thCPC-Railways

The subject was discussed in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14.11.2017, consequently the Railway Board had stated as follows:-

“Ministry of Finance to whom the matter was referred to for a decision, as now referred it back to DoP&T. The railways are awaiting decision of the Government on the proposal sent by the Railway Ministry”.

The Federation had however requested the Railway Board to pursue vigorously with the concerned Ministries/Department for obtaining clearance for implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC in toto. Federation is disappointed to state that though more than two months passed, the subject continues to remain pending, leading to staff resentment against casual approach on 7th CPC recommendation.

NFIR therefore urges on the Railway Board to kindly expedite for obtaining clearance for upgrading the posts in the above categories.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
(Dr M. Raghavaiah),
General Secretary

Sub: Clarification regarding bunching of stages in the revised pay structure under RS(RP) Rules, 2016.

Subsequent to issue of clarifications regarding bunching of stages while fixing the pay in 7th CPC Schedules to RS(RP) Rules, 2016 vide Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/3 dated 27.09.2016 (RBE No. 139/2017), queries have been raised by several Railways on granting benefit of bunching of stages in case(s) where pay of two direct officers (belonging to different allotment year) came out to be fixed at first cell of Level-13 though, difference in their pays as on 31.12.2015 is comprising two stages.

2. In this context, it is intimated that the issue has been referred to Ministry of Finance (copy enclosed) and clarification on the same is awaited.

F.No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/3

New Delhi,
dated: 15/01/2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Clarification regarding bunching of stages under revised pay structure.

Detailed guidelines on the subject have been issued vide MoF’s OM No. 1-6/2016-IC dated 03.08.2017, which has been adopted in Railways through letter 27.09.2017. Para 7 of MoF’s OM dated 03.08.2017 states clarify inter alia “…..benefit on account of bunching cannot be extended with reference to pay stages lower than the Entry Pay indicated by the 7th CPC (emphasis added) for that level in the Pay Matrix. Extending the benefit of bunching with reference to pay stages below the entry pay will perpetuate the difference in pay on account of differential Entry Pay which was addressed by 7th CPC (emphasis added)”.

2. However, para 8 (iv) of the said OM states “All pay stages lower than the Entry Pay in the 6th CPC structure (emphasis added) as indicated in the Pay Matrix in 7th CPC Report are not to be taken into account for determining the extent of bunching”

3. However, certain cases have come to notice of this Ministry where this crucial difference in terminology in para-7 & para-8 of the OM is leading to confusion/ambiguity as to whether entry pay in 6th CPO alone and not 7th CPC is the deciding factor for determining bunching eligibility. Relying on the terminology adopted in para-8, cases have been noticed where benefit of ‘bunching’ has been given to direct officers of 2002 allotment year w.r.t. their junior of 2003 allotment year. Their pay fixation details are enclosed at Annexure-A. Similar cases involving certain retired officers in Level-13 and Level-14 has also been received. Illustration in this regard is enclosed at Annexure-B.

4. While the over-riding spirit of the clarifications issued by Ministry of Finance’s OM referred to above, was to avoid differential entry pay and was not to provide benefit of bunching at the entry level, this dichotomy in para-7 & para-8 is leading to differing interpretations. Clarifications over the issue may kindly be provided to enable uniform interpretation.

Encl. As above.

The Member Staff,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. 2016/F(E)III/1(1)/7 dated 11/07/2017.

Railway Board’s attention is invited to the instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 11/07/2017 (RBE No. 66/2017) vide which DoP&PW’s orders together with Concordance tables for revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners have been circulated. The Concordance Tables circulated by the Board, unfortunately do not cover the pension revision of former Running Staff as no separate tables in favour of them staff have been circulated so far. Reports received by the Federation (NFIR) reveal that the Pension/Family Pension of pre-2016 Running Staff is not being revised by the Zonal Railways due to non-provision of separate Concordance Tables by the Railway Board.

In this connection, NFIR desires to clarify that in case of former Running Staff Pension/Family Pension is required to be calculated taking into account the Basic Pay + 55% add on pay element. A sample calculation sheet of the Pension in the case of pre-2016 Running Staff is enclosed as Annexure to this letter for appreciation and quick action.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to communicate the Concordance Tables to the Zonal Railways for revision of Pension/Family Pension of former Running Staff. It is also urged that the Concordance Tables be finalized on the basis of specimen (vide Annexure to this letter) and instructions issued to the GMs of Zonal Railways.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary


Annexure to NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B.-Part II

Running Staff retired on 31/12/2005.      

Basic Pay = Rs. 9525
On 01/01/2006 = Rs. 9525 x 30% = Rs. 2858
Pay on 31/12/2015 = Rs. 9525 + 2858 = 12383 x 2.26     = Rs. 27985
Notional Pay on 31/12/2015 = 27985 + GP 4200/-
Pay on 01/01/2016 = Rs. 27985 x 30% = 8396
Rs. 27985 + 8396 = 36,381 + GP 4200 = 40,581
Rs. 40,581 x 2.57 = 1,04,294/-
Pay element (55%) = Rs. 1,04,294 x 55% = Rs. 57,362
Settlement pay = Rs. 1,04,294 + 57,362 = 1,61,656
Monthly Pension = Rs. 1,61,656 ÷ 2 = 80,828
