3. Now for the sake of convenience of all the stakeholders, the said DPE OMs have been collated as under:

(i) Deputation or the Government Officers in CPSEs

a) The Government officers already on deputation with the CPSEs as on 26.11.2008 (the date of issue of 0.M. by the DPE regarding the revision of scale of pay of the executives and non-unionised supervisors of CPSEs) will continue to avail of the option already available and exercised by them till the end of their deputation tenure. The extension, if any given after 26.11.2008 will not qualify for this dispensation.

b) The Board level executives who have been selected through PESB mechanism in IDA scales, and appointed on deputation basis, by ACC/Competent Authority prior to 26.11.2008 will continue to get the same scales with all its associated benefits till the end of their tenure.

c) It may be emphasized that the pay revision of the executives is a total package and the scales, perks and allowances should not be mixed. Accordingly the executives getting the CDA pay scales will continue to get benefits, perks and allowances applicable to CDA scales and executives who are getting IDA pay scales will get perks and allowances applicable to IDA scales.

d) The above decisions are enabling provisions. All the conditions indicated in DPE O.Ms dated 26.11.2008, 09.02.2009 and will be applicable mutatis mutandis to such executives also.

(ii) Self-Lease

(a) Every CPSE must have a Rent Assessment Committee (RAC), which would assess the market tent for categories of executives and non-unionised supervisors, entitled for lease/self-lease accommodation and also the maximum ceiling of reimbursement depending upon the company’s capacity to pay. The RAC may include Members from Finance, HR., Civil Engineering, Law etc. as deemed appropriate.

(b) The RAC will also decide on rent recovery, for which DPE guidelines as applicable to Board level Executives (10% of Basic pay) will be kept in view.

(c) For purposes of CTC, 30% of Basic Pay is required to be considered on housing as per Para 8 of DPE O.M. dated 26.11.2008. This is not meant to a ceiling and tberefore, this should not be treated as the maximum limit for a leased accommodation.

(d) The Board of Directors of CPSEs must ensure that self-leased accommodation does not become an additional source of income to the employee. The precautions as indicated in DPE O.Ms dated 20.05.2009 and will also be kept in view.

(iii) Expenditure on Hospitals, Colleges, Schools. Clubs etc.

The percentage towards expenditure on Hospitals, Colleges- Schools, Clubs etc. should be as close to actual and should be assessed preferably every financial year.

(iv) Encashment of Leave

(a) DPE O.M. dated 05.08.2005 provides for a maximum ceiling of Earned Leave that can be accumulated. CPSCs are not permitted to encash leave beyond 300 days at the time or retirement of an employee of CPSE. The employees are not permitted to accumulate more than 300 days as specified under DFE guidelines.

(b) Casual Leave must not encashed at all and shall lapse at the end of the calendar year.

(c) The component of leave encashment during service i.e. the expenditure on leave encashment, will not be treated Perks and Allowance. It will not however, be treated as pay and accordingly not qualify for any other benefit like HRA. etc.

(d) Leave encashment on Superannuation will not be part of 30% ceiling of Basic Pay and DA for superannuation benefits.

(v) Non-practicing Allowance(NPA)

NPA will not be considered as pay for the purpose of calculating other benefits.

No other allowances/benetit/perks will be kept outside the prescribed 50% ceiling except the four which have been mentioned in the DPE O.M dated 26.11.2008.

(vii) Procedure of pay fixation in some past cases of pay of Board Level Executives

a) Since the percentage based increment during the periodicity of 1997 pay revision was granted with the approval of the Competent Authority to specific CPSEs, would not be proper to consider notional increment and stagnation increment based on fixed elements.

b) Stagnation increment can only be granted after reaching the maximum of scalc of pay. once after two years and a maximum of three only. This mechanism was applicable upto 31.12.2006.

(viii) Bunching of Increment.

Subject : Fixation of pay in the merged Pay Scale of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs.5500-9000 with Rs.6500-10500 (5th CPC) in 6th CPC Pay Band-2 + Grade Pay Rs.4200/-

Reference: Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Minutes of the National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012 circulated vide DOP&T OM F.No. 11/2/2008-JCA dated 13th September, 2012.

Sir,
Kindly refer to Para No. 8.1 of the Minutes of the Meeting of the 6th CPC National Anomaly Committee held on 17th July, 2012. This is with regard to Item No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 i.e. fixation of pay in revised Pay Scale. The Staff Side in the meeting has reiterated their demand that the pay in the incumbents holding the merged Pay Scale of Rs. 5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 should have been fixed by applying the multiplication factor of 1.86 at Rs. 6500 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 implying thereby that the commencement point of the Pay Band-2 should be at Rs. 12090/- based on 6500 x 1.863 = 12090 instead of Rs. 9300/- computed by multiplying Rs. 5000 x 1.86. The Official Side has rejected the demand of the Staff Side and after discussion it was decided that on this issue a disagreement may have to be recorded for referring the same to arbitration. Even though it is more than 5 years after the above decision we are not aware that what action has been taken to implement the decision taken in the National Anomaly Committee Meeting.

In this situation the affected Central Government Employees working in different Ministries have approached Court of Law for getting justice. Recently the CAT Ernakulum Bench in its Order OA No. 180/00569/2014 delivered on 03rd of April, 2018 has upheld the demand of the Staff Side and has given the following direction to the Government of India. The relevant portion of the Judgment is given below for your kind information.

14. It has to be borne in mind that CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 is a Rule notified under the proviso to Article 309 of the Constitution of India made by the President and hence it has a statutory status in the eye of law. Therefore, any interpretation of the provisions in the said Rules has to be in terms of the Rules itself. Any O.M. issued by way of clarification, explanation or prescribing the modalities for fixation of initial pay of the Government Employees as per the revised pay structure can be only in terms of what is stated in the Rules.

15. As observed above, going by the definitions of the terms ‘existing basic pay’ and ‘existing scale’ in the CDS (RP) Rules, 2008, Rule 7 fixation can be only in accordance with the afore-mentioned definitions of ‘existing basic pay’ and ‘existing scale’ only and not by way of administrative O.Ms and instructions contained in Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. Therefore, we are inclined to quash and set aside Annexure A-1 and Annexure A-2 communications. We do so. We hold that the applicants are entitled to the declaration as prayed for and that the respondents should be directed to fix the initial pay of the applicants including all the members of Applicant No. 1 association in the revised pay structure by fixing their salary in the revised pay scale of Rs. 6500-10500 treating Rs. 6500/- as the existing basic pay as on 01.01.2006 with all consequential benefits. We order accordingly. This order shall be complied within 3 months from the date of receipt of copy of this order.”

In view of the above Judgement it is requested that without further prolonging the matter the above Judgment may be implemented by issuing a general instructions extending the benefit to all the similarly place Employees.

Awaiting for your favourable response please.

Thanking you,

Yours Faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary

Brief of the 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

Brief of the 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

Sub: Brief of the 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

The first meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held today under the Chairmanship of Secretary(P), Government of India, to discuss the issue of calculation of Disability Pension for Defence Forces Personnel as per recommendations of the 7th CPC, which was attended by the Member Staff Railway Board and the Secretaries from other departments of the Government of India.

AIRF was represented by the undersigned and Com. J.R. Bhosale, Treasurer AIRF while Army personnel were represented by the officials of all the three wings of the defence. At the outset, I urged upon the Secretary (DoP&T), to frame the definition of the “Anomaly”, which has been already demanded by the Staff Side, NC/JCM.

This is in respect of report of the VII CPC, which has granted slab system on Disability Pension for the Defence Personnel, which was far short of the existing disability pension for the army officers. We explained the life of the army personnel and their cases of disability in the enemies’ action.

After threadbare discussions we urged upon the Official Side to see that there is no drop in the disability pension for any of the categories of the army personnel and paramilitary forces, rather they should be well compensated for their best they are giving for defending our motherland.

1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

The 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held on 01.12.2016 on the anomaly of calculation of the disability pension for Defence Forces Personnel as per the recommendations of the 7th CPC. The representative of the Armed Forces made a presentation in the meeting demanding that the recommendations of the 7th CPC to grand disability pension on a slab system if implemented will lead to an anomaly between the civilian side and the Defence Forces Personnel because the civilian side will continue to be governed under a percentage based system. After studying the presentation, the Staff Side of NC-JCM has suggested that the slab system will be beneficial to the lower Rank personnel and hence both the slab system and percentage system may be accepted by the Govt. on an optional basis, alternatively the slab amount recommended by 7th CPC can be increased to avoid the anomalous situation. Secretary (P) informed that the issue would be further studied in consultation with CGDA.
