CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion

CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion

Establishment A-III Desk

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated: 6th December, 2016

 OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No. 11012/6/2008-Estt.(A) dated 7th July, 2008 on the above mentioned subject and to say that vide para 2(iii) of the said OM, it was instructed that where a departmental proceeding has been instituted, and it is considered that a Government servant deserves to be penalized for the offence/misconduct, one of the prescribed penalties may only be awarded and no warning, recordable or otherwise, should be issued to the Government servant. However, while considering cases for empanelment, the ACC has observed that in many cases, rather than exonerating the officer or imposing a penalty on him, administrative warning is issued even when disciplinary proceeding were drawn against him. Administrative warning is not recognized as a penalty.

2. In view of the above, the following position as contained in various instructions issued so far on warning/Censure etc. are reiterated for strict compliance:

(i) As clarified in the Ministry of Home Affairs O.M. No. 39/21/56-Estt.(A) dated 13 th December, 1956, warning is administered by any authority superior to a Government employee in the event of minor lapses like negligence, carelessness, lack of thoroughness, delay etc. It is an administrative device in the hands of superior authorities for cautioning the Government employees with a view to toning up efficiency and maintaining discipline. There is, therefore, no objection to the continuance of this system. However, where a copy of the warning is also kept in the Confidential Report dossier, it will be taken to constitute an adverse entry and the officer so warned will have the right to represent against the same in accordance with the existing instructions relating to communication of adverse remarks and consideration of representations against them.

(ii) Where a departmental proceeding has been instituted under the provisions of CCS(CC&A) Rules 1965, after the conclusion of disciplinary proceedings, the officer is either exonerated or where it is considered that some blame attaches to the officer, he should be awarded one of the recognized statutory penalties as given in Rule 11 of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 i.e. at least ‘Censure’ should be imposed. In such a situation, a warning, recordable or otherwise, should not be issued.

(iii) Warning, letter of caution, reprimands or advisories administered to Government servants do not amount to a penalty and, therefore, will not constitute a bar for consideration of such Government servants for promotion.

3. All the disciplinary authorities in Ministries/Departments are, therefore, requested to keep in view the above guidelines while dealing with disciplinary case against the Government servants.

4. Hindi version will follow.

Processing of Pension cases mandatorily through Bhavishya (Online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System) w.e.f 01/01/2017

OFFICE MEMEORANDUM

Sub: Processing of Pension cases mandatorily through Bhavishya (Online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System) w.e.f 01/01/2017 – reg.

Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare is responsible for formulation of policy and coordination of matters relating to pension policy and welfare of Central Government pensioners. It has been seen that despite detailed guidelines and instructions to the contrary a large proportion of retiring employees do not get their retirement benefits and the Pension Payment Order(PPO) in time. It is likely that such retired employees find it difficult to get the process completed after retirement. The sanction process starts more than a year before the date of retirement and requires cooperation amongst various agencies. This department has, therefore, launched Bhavishya – an online pension sanction and payment tracking system. The system by keeping track of the progress of each case introduces transparency and accountability. Both the retiring employees as well as administrative authorities can monitor progress at each stage.

2. The system has been running successfully in the main Secretariat of all ministries/departments for the last one year. It has since been extended to cover over 3000 Drawing and Disbursing Officers and Pay and Accounts Offices from various ministries/departments and their attached offices.

3. It has now been decided that all Heads of Offices will henceforth mandatorily process all pension cases only through Bhavishya. In this, where necessary, they will assist the retiring employee to submit the online application form. The Pay and Accounts Offices will process cases generated through Bhavishya through the pension module in COMPACT till the Public Financial Management System(PFMS) is made operational and integrated with Bhavishya.

4. It is to be noted that all authorities will strictly follow the timelines prescribed under the CCS(Pension) Rules and in no case will the pension case be delayed on account of electronic processing through Bhavishya.

5. These instructions take effect from 1st January, 2017.

6. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

No.Confdn/7th CPC/Option/2016-17
10-10-2016

To

Shri.R.K.Chathurvedi,
Joint Secretary to Govt. of India,
Ministry of Finance,
Department of Expenditure
(Implementation Cell),
Room No.124, The Ashok, North Block,
New Delhi 110 001.

Sir,

Sub: Exercising option for pay fixation in the revised 7th CPC Pay Structure, from the date of promotion or from the date of next increment from 01.01.2017  C/o.Officials who are due for promotion/upgradation from Grade Pay 2800 to 4200 during the period from 01.01.2016 to 01.07.2017 . Request clarification and permission to exercise revised option as a one-time measure.

1. As per Rule 5 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 the following provisions are notified by Government on 25.07.2016:

Rule 5 : Government servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next increment or any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in the existing pay structure.

Provided further that in cases where a Government servant has been placed in a higher grade pay or scale between 1st day of January 2016 and the date of notification of these rules (ie. 25.07.2016) on account of promotion or upgradation, the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion or upgradation as the case may be.

2. As per the above two provisions, a Government servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing (pre-revised) pay structure which implies that in cases where there is no promotion/upgradation between 01.01.2016 to 30.06.2016 (or between 01-01-2016 to 30-06-2017 in the case of subsequent increment on 01-07-2017) option to opt from the date of next increment (01.07.2016) or subsequent increment (01.07.2017) is available, thereby forgoing the arrears from 01.01.2016 to 30-06-2016 (next increment) or upto the date of subsequent increment say, 01.07.2017.

3. Thus, in the case of promotion/upgradation of a Government Servant becoming due before the date of notification ie, 25.07.2016, he should elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion/upgradation. He has no option to opt for the next increment (becoming due after the date of promotion/upgradation) for fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

4. Subsequently a clarificatory order is issued by Department of Expenditure (Implementation Cell) on 29th September 2016, which clarified the position further. As per this clarification, in case an employee is promoted or upgraded to the higher pay structure (in the pre-revised pay structure) he may be permitted to exercise revised option to have his pay fixed under the Revised Pay Rules 2016 from the date of such promotion/upgradation or from the date of next increment as per FR-22(i)(a)(i).

5. Thus an official who got promotion/upgradation on 15.07.2016 (in the month of July 2016), can exercise option to fix his pay under Revised Pay Rules, 2016, either from the date of promotion or from the date of next increment ie; on 01.07.2017.

6. Even after issuing the above clarificatory orders, dated 29.09.2016, it is not clear, whether an employee who becomes eligible for promotion/financial upgradation on a date after the date of issue of notification, ie, 25-07-2016, but before the date of next increment ie. 01.07.2017, can exercise option now, for fixation of his Revised Pay as per CCS (RP) Rules, 2016, from the date of promotion or from the date of next increment, ie; 01.07.2017, by forgoing the arrears from 01-01-2016 to date of promotion or 30.06.2017, thus allowing him to draw his pay in the pre-revised pay structure of 6th CPC till the date of promotion or till the date of next increment on 01-07-2017. As per the existing orders, all those employees whose date of promotion/upgradation becomes due after 25.07.2016 should compulsorily opt for pay fixation from 01.01.2016 or 01-07-2016, whereas an employee whose promotion is due in July 2016 ie; before the date of notification (25.07.2016) can opt for next increment date on 01.07.2017 for fixation in the Revised Pay structure under FR-22(i)(a)(i). Since the benefit is extended to a section of employees who were promoted between 01-01-2016 and 25.07.2016 and the same benefit is denied to the rest of the employee who are promoted after 25.07.2016, this is a clear case of discrimination and denial of natural and equitable justice.

7. If the option as above is not allowed, thousands of employees who are due for promotion/financial upgradation from 2800 Grade Pay to 4200 Grade Pay (in the pre-revised pay structure) from a date after the date of notification ie. 25.07.2016, will suffer a recurring loss of Rs.2800 to 3000 per month, throughout their service.

The following illustrations will explain the above facts:

1st OPTION 7th CPC : OPTION FROM 01.01.2016
6th CPC 7th CPC
Basic as on 01.01.2016 16490 16490×2.57 = 42379. Next stage in the pay matrix level – 5 = 42800
Increment on 01.07.2016 42800×3%=1284, 42800+1284=44084. Next stage in the Pay matrix = 44100.
MACP-II promotion from 2800 GP to 4200 GP on 05.12.2016 (one increment fixation) 44100×3%=1323, 44100+1323=45423.
Next stage in the pay matrix level-6
= 46200.
2ND OPTION (IF ALLOWED) : OPTION FROM DATE OF SUBSEQUENT INCREMENT ie; 01.07.2017.
6th CPC 7th CPC fixation if option allowed from date of promotion or date of next increment on 01.07.2017
Basic as on 01.01.2016 16490
Increment on 01.07.2016 16990
MACP-II promotion from 2800GP to 4200 GP on 05-12-2016 (One increment fixation + Grade Pay difference) 16990×3% notional increment – 510.
Grade pay difference = 4200-2800 = 1400.
Total Basic = 16990+510+1400=18900.
18900×2.57-48573. Next stage in the pay matrix in level 6 = 49000.
(If option allowed from date of promotion)
Increment on 01.07.2017 18900×3% = 567
= 18900+567 = 19467
= 19470
19470×2.57 = 50038
Next stage in the pay matrix level 6 = 50500.
(If option allowed from
date of next increment).

Thus if no option is permissible after 25.07.2016 to fix the pay in the revised scale on the date of promotion ie. 5.12.2016, then by compulsory option from 01.01.2016, the pay will be fixed at 46200 on promotion. If option is permissible after the date of notification to fix the pay in the revised scale on the date of promotion, the pay will be fixed at 49000. The difference is Rs.2,800/-. If option for fixation on next increment on 01.07.2017 is granted, then the difference will increase further.

In view of the above, it is requested that the case may be reviewed judiciously and clarificatory orders may be issued, permitting the employees whose promotion date become due after the date of notification (25.07.2016) also, to exercise option for fixation of their revised pay from the date of promotion/upgradation or from the date of next increment ie. 01.07.2017, as a one time measure, thereby forgoing the entire arrears from 01.01.2016 to date of promotion or date of next increment on 01.07.2017. In other words, they may be permitted to draw their pay in the pre-revised 6th CPC pay structure till the date of promotion or till the date of next increment on 01.07.2017.

Awaiting favourable orders,

Yours faithfully,

M.Krishnan,
Secretary General,
&
Standing Committee Member,

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965 – instructions regarding timely issue of Charge-sheet – regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to DoP&T’s O.M. No.11012/17/2013-Estt.A-III dated 3rd July, 2015 on the above mentioned subject and to say that in a recent case, Ajay Kumar Choudhary vs Union of India Civil Appeal No. 1912 of 2015 dated 16/02/2015, the Apex Court has directed as follows:

“14 We, therefore, direct that the currency of a Suspension Order should not extend beyond three months if within this period the Memorandum of Charges/Chargesheet is not served on the delinquent officer/employee; if the Memorandum of Charges/Charge sheet is served a reasoned order must be passed for the extension of the suspension. As in the case in hand, the Government is free to transfer the concerned person to any Department in any of its offices within or outside the State so as to sever any local or personal contact that he may have and which he may misuse for obstructing the investigation against him. The Government may also prohibit him from contacting any person, or handling records and documents till the stage of his having to prepare his defence Furthermore, the direction of the Central Vigilance Commission that pending a criminal investigation departmental proceedings are to be held in abeyance stands superseded in view of the stand adopted by us.”

 

2. In compliance of the above judgement, it has been decided that where a Government servant: is placed under suspension, the order of suspension should not extend beyond three months, if within this period the charge-sheet is not served to the charged officer. As such, it should be ensured that the charge sheet is issued before expiry of 90 days from the date of suspension. As the suspension will lapse in case this time line is not adhered to, a close watch needs to be kept at all levels to ensure that charge sheets are issued in time.

3. It should also be ensured that disciplinary proceedings are initiated as far as practicable in cases where an investigating agency is seized of the matter or criminal proceedings have been launched. Clarifications in this regard have already been issued vide O.M. No. 11012/6/2007-Estt.A-Ill dated 21.07.2016.

4. All Ministries/ Departments/Offices’ are requested to bring the above guidelines to the notice of all Disciplinary Authorities under their control.

5. Hindi version will follow.

Central Secretariat employees seek pay parity

A delegation of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service (CSSS) Association, called on the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for parity in pay fixation and related issues.

The delegation led by Shri Raj Kishore Singh submitted a memorandum listing details of their long pending issues and suggesting options to resolve the same. According to the memorandum, while applying Rule 8 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008, the pay of direct recruits and new entrants is fixed at higher stage, when compared to the existing employees who were promoted in the same grade. This leads to discrimination in the fixation of pay of Personal Assistants of one category vis-à-vis the other category.

The memorandum also stated that the issue has been lingering on in the National Anomaly Committee for the last four years, but it has not been addressed. It pleaded that the mechanism of grant of “stepping up” to certain employees should be provided only in exceptional cases and not resorted to as a routine matter to sort out discrepancies which may affect a large number of employees.

Members of the delegation suggested that their issue can be addressed by incorporating a new provision in the Rules wherein if a promotee’s pay is getting fixed at a stage lower than that of a direct recruit, then the pay of the promotee should be fixed at the same stage as that of a direct recruit / new entrant. The other option suggested by them was to amend the CCS (RP) Rules so as to appropriately fix the pay in the Pay Band for a particular post carrying a specific Grade Pay.

Dr Jitendra Singh gave a sympathetic hearing to the members of delegation and assured them that DoPT will try to sort out their issue to the maximum extent possible.

The recommendations of 7th CPC have been considered by the Government and the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2016 have been issued by Department of Expenditure vide Notification dated 25th July, 2016. Consequently, in place of the Pay Band and Grade Pay, the revised pay structure comprising the “LEVEL in the PAY MATRIX has come into effect. In the light of this, it has now been decided that the existing Service Rules/Recruitment Rules shall be amended by the Ministries/Departments by substituting the existing Pay Band and Grade Pay by the new pay structure i.e. “LEVEL in the PAY MATRIX” straightaway without making a reference to the Department of Personnel and Training (DOP&T)/Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). The heading of column No.4 of the Schedule in RRs may be modified to “LEVEL in the PAY MATRIX”. Similarly, in column 11 of Recruitment Rules, for promotion the corresponding “Pay Band and Grade Pay” needs to be replaced with corresponding “LEVEL in the PAY MATRIX”. In cases where deputation is also one of the methods of recruitment, the field of selection for deputation which includes various grades should also reflect the corresponding “LEVEL in the PAY MATRIX”.

2. The above amendments may be carried out by 30th September, 2016.

The reference base for calculation of Dearness Allowance shall undergo change in the revised RPR 2016 and will be linked to average index as on 01.01.2016 and notified by government at a later stage.

(viii) Payment of Dearness Allowance

The revised pay structure effective from 01.01.2016 includes the Dearness Allowance of 125% sanctioned from 01.01.2016 in the pre-revised pay structure. The Dearness Allowance in the revised pay structure shall be zero from 01.01.2016.

The rate and date of effect of the first installment of Dearness Allowance in the revised pay structure shall be as per the orders to be issued in this behalf in future.

(ix) Deduction of CGEGIS

The existing rate of monthly contributions under Central Government Employees Group insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) shall continue to be applicable under the existing rates until further orders.

(x) Mode of payment of arrears of pay

The arrears accruing on account of revised pay consequent upon fixation of pay under CCS(RP) Rules 2016 w.e.f. 01.01.2016 shall be paid in cash in one installment alongwith the payment of salary for the month of August 2016, after making necessary adjustment on account of GPF and NPS, as applicable , in view of the revised pay. The paying authority shall ensure that the action is taken simultaneously in regard to Government’s contribution towards enhanced subscription.

With a view to expedite authorization and disbursement of arrears, arrear claims may be paid without pre-check of fixation of pay in the revised scales of pay. However, the facility has not been dispensed with in respect of those Government servants who have relinquished service on account of dismissal, resignation, discharge, retirement etc. after the date of implementation of the Pay Commission’s recommendations but before the preparation and drawl of arrear claims, as well as in respect of those employees who had expired prior to exercising their option for the drawal of pay in the revised scales.

The requirement of pre~check of pay fixation having been dispensed with, it is not unlikely that the arrears due in some cases may be computed incorrectly leading to overpayments that might have to be recovered subsequently.
