OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Grant of Deputation (Duty) Allowance – Recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Regarding.

This Department’s OM No. 6/8/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 17.6.2010 inter-alia provides for rates of Deputation (Duty) Allowance admissible to Central Government employees.

2. As provided in para 7 of Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure’s Resolution No.1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July, 2016, the matter regarding allowances (except Dearness Allowance) based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) was referred to a Committee under the Chairmanship of Finance Secretary and until a final decision thereon, all Allowances have been paid at the existing rates in the existing pay structure.

3. The decision of the Government on various allowances based on the recommendations of the 7th CPC and in the light of the recommendations of the Committee under the Chairmanship of the Finance Secretary has since been issued as per the Resolution No.11-1/2016-IC dated 6th July 2017 of Department of Expenditure.

4. As mentioned at Sl.No.46 of the Appendix-II of the said Resolution dated 6th July 2017, the recommendation of the 7th CPC for enhancement of ceiling of Deputation (Duty) Allowance for civilians by 2.25 times has been accepted and this decision is effective from 1st July, 2017. Accordingly, the President is pleased to decide that the rates of Deputation (Duty) Allowance and certain other conditions relating to grant of Deputation (Duty) Allowance shall be as under:-

The Deputation (Duty) Allowance admissible shall be at the following rates:

(a) In case of deputation within the same station the Deputation (Duty) Allowance will be payable at the rate of 5% of basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.4500 p.m.

(b) In case of deputation involving change of station, the Deputation (Duty) Allowance will be payable at the rate of 10% of the basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.9000 p.m.

(c) The ceilings will further rise by 25 percent each time Dearness Allowance increases by 50 percent.

(d) Basic Pay, from time to time, plus Deputation (Duty) Allowance shall not exceed the basic pay in the apex level i.e. Rs. 2,25,000/-. In the case of Government servants receiving Non Practising Allowance, their basic pay plus Non-Practising Allowance plus Deputation (Duty) Allowance shall not exceed the average of basic pay of the revised scale applicable to the Apex Level and the Level of the Cabinet Secretary i.e. Rs.2,37,500/-.

Note: 1 ‘Basic pay’ in the revised pay structure (the pay structure based on 7th Central Pay Commission recommendations) means the pay drawn by the deputationist, from time to time, in the prescribed Level, in Pay Matrix, of the post held by him substantively in the parent cadre, but does not include any other type of pay like personal pay, etc.

Note: 2 In cases where the basic pay in parent cadre has been upgraded on account of non-functional upgradation (NFU), Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP), Non Functional Selection Grade (NFSG), etc., the upgraded basic pay under such upgradations shall not be taken into account for the purpose of Deputation (Duty) Allowance.

Note 3 In the case of a Proforma Promotion under Next Below Rule (NBR): If such a Proforma Promotion is in a Level of the Pay Matrix which is higher than that of the ex-cadre post, the basic pay under such Proforma Promotion shall not be taken into account for the purpose of Deputation (Duty) Allowance. However, if such a Proforma Promotion under NBR is in a Level of the pay matrix which is equal to or below that of the ex-cadre post, Deputation (Duty) Allowance shall be admissible on the basic pay of the parent cadre post allowed under the proforma promotion, if opted by the deputationist.

Note 4 In case of Reverse Foreign Service, if the appointment is made to post whose pay structure and/ or Dearness Allowance (DA) pattern is dissimilar to that in the parent organisation, the option for electing to draw the basic pay in the parent cadre [alongwith the Deputation (Duty) Allowance thereon and the personal pay, if any] will not be available to such employee.

Note: 5 The term ‘same station’ for the purpose will be determined with reference to the station where the person was on duty before proceeding on deputation.

Note: 6 Where there is no change in the headquarters with reference to the last post held, the transfer should be treated as within the same station and when there is change in headquarters it would be treated as not in the same station. So far as places falling within the same urban agglomeration of the old headquarters are concerned, they would be treated as transfer within the same station.

5. Para 6.1 of this Department’s OM No.6/8/2009-Estt(Pay-II) dated 17.6.2010 stands amended to the above effect.

6. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit & Accounts Department are concerned, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller & Auditor General of India.

7. These orders shall take effect from 1st July, 2017

Under Secretary to the Government of India

Dated 17th November, 2017

To

The Chief of the Army Staff

The Chief of the Naval Staff

The Chief or the Air Staff

Subject: Eligibility of widowed/divorced daughter for grant of Family Pension clarification.

The undersigned is directed to state that the provision for grant of family pension to a widowed/divorced daughter beyond the age of 25 years has been made vide GoI, Ministry of personnel, P.C. & Pensions, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare 0M No.1/19/03-(E) dated 2S.08.2004 Circulated vide GoI MOD letter No.878/A/D(Pen/Sers)/04 dated 21.09.2004 applying the same provision to the Armed Force Personnel.

2. It was clarified vide Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, P.G- & Pensions, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare OM No.1/13/09-P&PW (E) dated 11.09.2013 circulated vide MOD ID No.1(9)/2013/D(Pen/Pol) dated 16.09.2015, the family pension is payable to the children as they are considered to be dependent on the Government servant/pensioner or his/her spouse. A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents. Therefore, only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or his/her spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension. If two or more children are eligible for family pension at that time, family pension will be payable to each child on his/her turn provided he/she is still eligible for family pension when the turn come. Accordingly, divorced daughters who fulfil other conditions are eligible for family pension if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents.

3. Grievances were being received from various quarters that the divorce proceedings are a long drawn procedure which take many years before attaining finality. There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of a daughter of Government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life of one or both Government employee/pensioner & spouse, but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority.

4. The matter has been examined in this department and it has been decided that the clarification “grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed tn a competent court during the life time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death-provided the claimant fulfils all other conditions for grant of family pension. In such cases, the family pension will commence from the date of divorce” given by Government of India. Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions’, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare vide 0M No.1/13/09- P&PW (E) dated 19.07.2017 would also apply mutatis mutandis to divorced daughters of Armed Force personnel.

5. This issues with the concurrence ofthe Finance Division of this Ministry vide their ID No.10(09)/2015/Fin/Pen dated 17.10.2017.

6. Hindi version will follow.

DOPT : Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee

DOPT : Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee
F.No.11/2/2016-JCA-I(Pt.)

 Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel Training

 

North Block, New Delhi
Dated the 30th October, 2017

To

Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra

Secretary, Staff-Side National Council,

JCM 13-C, Ferozshah Road,

New Delhi-110001

Subject:— Items proposed by the Staff-Side, NC(JCM) for discussion in the National Anomaly Committee — Comments of DoPT regarding.

Sir,

I am directed to refer to your letters no. NC-JCM-2017/7th CPC Anomaly dated 16th August, 2017 and 31th August, 2017 with which a total of 18 items have been sent to DoPT for discussion in the NAC meetings. These 18 items are about various issues over which, the Staff-Side has opined, anomaly has arisen as a result of the 7th CPC’s recommendations or absence of them.

2. On the other hand, DoPT after examining them in the light of the three postulates which, as described in DoPT’s OM. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017, would constitute anomaly is of the view that there are certain items in the lists sent which are not in accord with them and hence cannot be called anomalies as such notwithstanding the merit that they may have otherwise. There are also certain items which should be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committees of the other administrative Ministries concerned. A few items are those which, for a detailed examination, need more relevant documents/papers etc. These have been briefly described below:

Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.      
Anomaly     in computation          of Minimum Wage
As
against the Minimum Wage decided to be Rs. 18000/- by the Govt. w.e.f.
01.01.2016, the Staff-Side has said that this should be not less than
Rs. 26,000/-and the multiplication factor ought to have been 3.714 and
not 2.57.
 They
have further asked for the pay matrix to be changed. Objecting to the
methodology adopted by the 7th CPC in computing the Minimum Wage, they
have given a number of reasons like the retail prices of the commodities
quoted by the Labour Bureau being irrational, adoption of the 12
monthly average of the retail price being contents to the Dr. Avkrovd f
ormula, the website of the Agriculture Ministry giving the retail prices
of commodities forming the basis of computation of minimum wage
provides a different picture, so on and so forth.
However,
when one compares this item with the three situations given in DoPT’s
OM. No. 11/2/2016-jCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017,
it does not appear that this satisfies any of them to be treated as an
anomaly.
2.      
3% Increment in all stages
The
Staff-Side argues that in spite of the foreword to the Report making it
clear in para 1.19 that the prevailing rate of increment is considered
quite satisfactory and has been retained, an illustrative list appended
by them shows instances where the pay, gone up after the addition of
annual increment by 3%, falls short of what it would have been. They
have quoted para-5.1.38 of the report also which states that the rate of
annual increment would be 3%.
While
what the Staff-Side has stated has its own merits, the fact of the
matter is that the principle followed here is whenever a stage of pay,
after addition of an increment, falls short of the nearest hundred by
less than 50, the employee would be entitled to get the amount mentioned
in the immediately next cell in the Pay-Matrix. However, when the gap
is that of more than 50, the pay, on addition of an increment, is
rounded off to the nearest hundred which travels backward.
For
instance, if staying at Rs. 46,100/- one gets an increment @ 3%,
instead of having his/her pay fixed at Rs. 47,483/- (which is the exact
figure), it will be Rs. 47,500/- (thus gaining by Rs. 13/-). Thus it is
not a case of permanent loss as the loss in one year is made good in the
second/third year. Considering this to he a situation of swings and
roundabouts, this may not be treated as a case of anomaly.
3.      
Anomaly due to index rationalization
The
Staff-Side has taken exception to the index rationalization followed by
the 7th CPC while formulating its views as per which the fitment factor
varies and moves upward as one goes up the hierarchical ladder with the
level of responsibility and accountability also steadily climbing up
commensurately. The Staff-Side argues that the multiplication factor
should be one, i.e. 2.81.
Although the Staff-Side has remonstrated that
the
vertical relativity will suffer distortion in the process, it has to be
stated that it is a policy decision about by the Staff-Side comes to be
distorted when the pay of a feeder-cadre post and that of a promotional
post becomes same. In this case it is not
so. Hence it does not appear to qualify for being called an anomaly.
4.      
Minimum Pension
The
Staff-Side says the minimum pension fixed after 7th CPC should be
corrected and revised orders issued. From the brief explanatory note
recorded under this point, it appears that the CPC had sounded out D/o
pension on what the latter thought what the minimum pension should be.
This
is an exclusively pension-related issue on which, as informed by the
Staff-Side, D/o Pension was asked for their views by the 7t1 CPC.
Moreover, as will be evident, the basic focus of DoPT’s Q.M. No.
11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017 is on
taking on board those anomalies which are pay-related. Hence, this item
may be taken up separately by the Staff-Side with the D/o Pension. Thus,
instead of treating this as a case of anomaly, the Staff-Side is
requested to take it up with the D/o Pension separately.
5.      
Date of effect of allowances HRA, Transport Allowance, CEA etc.
The
Staff-Side has demanded that the grant of the allowances (revised)
mentioned alongside should be made effective from 01.01.2016 and not
from 01.07.2017.
This
is a demand and cannot be treated as an anomaly. Moreover, the date
from which a benefit is to be made effective is something which can be
decided only by the Government. Hence, this may not be taken up at the
NAC.
6.      
Anomaly in the grant of D.A instalment w.e.f 01.01.2016.
Here the Staff-Side has questioned the methodology adopted by the Government in computing the DA instalment w.e.f. 01.01.2016.
It
has, however, to be pointed out that even if there is merit in the
contention of the Staff-Side involving this item, it does not qualify
being called an anomaly when it is examined in the light of the three
situations which, as per DoPT’s Q.M. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th
August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017, would constitute anomalies.
3. Items to be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committees.
Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.
Implement  the recommendation on Parity in Pay Scale between Sr.  Auditor/Sr. Accountant of IA&AD and organized Accounts with Assistant Section Officer of CSS.
The
Staff-Side says that although the 5th, 6th and now 7th CPC’s have
recommended that the pay-scales of different cadres/categories/grades
requiring the same recruitment qualifications should be the same, denial
of the same benefit to the Statistical Assistants (SA’s) who are
otherwise at par with Assistant Section Officers (erstwhile ‘Assistant’)
is a violation of the principle. While ASO’s are placed in the
Pay-Matrix of 7, SA’s are in the Pay-Matrix of 6. This arrangement is
stated to have disturbed the horizontal relativity between the
pay-scales of the SA’s in the Organized Accounts and IA&AD Cadre and
ASO’s in the CSS cadre. In conclusion, it has been requested that SA’s
should also be placed in Pay-Matrix no. 7.
Even
if, the present case comes across as one of anomaly, it appears that
the interests of the Statistical Assistants only are involved. ASO’s of
CCS are coming into the question; but only as a reference point, by way
of comparison. Hence the Staff-Side is requested to take up this issue
at the Departmental Anomaly Committee concerned.
2.
Technical Supervisors     of Railways
This
particular item is exclusively Railways-specific. The Staff-Side, NC
OCM) is requested to take it up at the Departmental Anomaly Committee of
MR) Railways.
3.
Anomaly     in       the assignment  of replacement of Levels of pay in the Ministry of Defence, Railways, Mines etc in the case of Store Keepers     .
Staff-Side
says that although ‘Store keeper’ is one such category of posts which
is common to various Departments like Defence, Mines, Railways etc and
in spite of the nature of job, responsibilities being similar, the
pay-scale of storekeepers across all the Departments is not the same. It
is still less in the M/o Defence even after the entry-level
qualifications which were different before the 7th CPC stage, have been
revised.
If
what the Staff-Side remonstrates that even after the requisite changes
had been carried out in the R/Rules, the 7th CPC did not take any
cognizance of it is true, it has to be assumed that it is a policy
decision of the Government. Moreover, the issue appears to be M/o
Defence-specific. The Staff-Side is requested to take it up at the
Departmental Anomaly Committee meeting of the M/o Defence.
         
4.       Item to be taken up separately with the Department of Pension.
Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.
Anomaly     arising from the decision to reject option-1 in pension fixation
As
per the ToR of the NAC, anomalies are basically pay-centric. Under this
point, the contention of the Staff-Side is pension-centric.
Furthermore, the Staff-Side has themselves clarified that post-7th CPC,
Government had set up a CoS headed by Secretary(Pension) to look into
the first option recommended by the 7th CPC. Eventually, this was not
found feasible to be implemented. With such a decision having been taken
at the CoS level, it cannot be called an anomaly. In view of this, we
may inform the Staff-Side to separately take it up with D/0 Pension
without treating it as an anomaly that can be taken up at the NAC.
                            
5.       More details required to examine the following item.
Si. No
DescriptionAnomaly     
Comments
1.
Parity in Pay Scales between      Assistants  /Stenographers      in field / subordinate officers and assistant Section Officer and stenographers in CSS.
Although the         heading of this item is          self-explanatory, the relevant text given in the paper sent  is
not complete as the pay-scales of Assistants and stenos posted in field
have not been mentioned therein. Until their pay-scales are known
they
cannot be compared to check whether there is indeed any anomaly. The
Staff-Side is requested to provide more information that is relevant so
that it can be properly examined to find out whether an anomaly arises
here or not.

 

 Yours faithfully,
 S/d,

Latest Position Regarding Minimum Pay And Fitment Formula

LATEST POSITION REGARDING MINIMUM PAY AND FITMENT FORMULA — GOVT INFORMED STAFFSIDE NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM THAT INCREASE IN MINIMUM PAY AND FITMENT FORMULA WILL NOT COME UNDER ANOMALY COMMITTEE ITEM.
During the last 2 – 3 months both print and electronic media are continuously reporting that increase in 7th CPC Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor is under serious consideration of the Govt. and National Anomaly Committee will give its recommendation to Govt. and orders for increased Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula will be given effect from April 2018. We are reproducing below a letter from Govt. dated 30.10.2017 addressed to Secretary, Staff Side , National Council JCM stating that the demand for increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula will not come under the purview of National Anomaly Committee. Further Govt. has not yet constituted the HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE for increasing Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula as assured by the Group of Ministers including Home Minister Sri Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley on 30.06.2016. The so-called Senior Officers Committee has also not discussed this agenda even though staff Side has repeatedly demanded discussion and settlement as per the assurance given by Senior Cabinet Ministers. Now 17 months are over. 32 lakhs Central Govt. Employees and 33 lakhs Pensioners are being continuously betrayed by the NDA Govt.

Along with that staff side also raised various issues arising out of implementation of govt. decisions on allowances. As usual the meeting ended without any positive outcome.

Dated: July 21, 2017

All Constituents of National Council JCM(Staff Side),

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Brief of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM) held today with the Additional Secretary, Department of Expenditure

A meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council(JCM) with the Additional Secretary, Department of Expenditure, has taken place today to discuss about the issues arising after the implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations.

At the beginning of the meeting: the Official Side briefed about the decision taken by the Government on the Allowances. The Staff Side thereafter raised the following issues:-

1. The Central Government Employees are dissatisfied by the decision taken by the Government not to revised the HRA percentage recommended by 7th CPC. The demand of the Staff Side is reiterated for retaining the existing percentage of 30%, 20% and 10%.

2. The low paid employees who were getting Transport Allowance @ Rs.3600 + DA a on 1.1.2016 is subject to huge financial loss since their Transport Allowance has been reduced to Rs.1300+DA. This injustice should be rectified. Official Side agreed for a review.

3. Even though the demand of the Staff Side is that, Allowances should also be revised from the date of revision of pay i.e.1.1.2016, at least Government should have given the same from the date of notification of 7th CPC as was done during the previous pay commissions. The Official Side is requested to consider this demand. The Staff Side also drawn attention of the Official Side towards the Awards given by the Board of Arbitration in favour of the employees in the past in the regard.

4. As regards Minimum Pay Fitment Formula, the Staff Side has already the justification for increasing Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor. However, Official Side has not yet responded till date on this demand. Since Minimum Pay is not derived on the basis of Dr.Akryod Formula / 15th ILC norms and Supreme Court judgement, the issue requires the review by the Government. Morever, even in the existing Pay Matrix there is discrimination between the low paid employees and high paid officers. Therefore, this demand should be discussed with the Staff Side by the Official Side so as to settle this major issue which was agreed to be considered by the Group of Ministers.

5. Government may restore various advances withdrawn and should also issue orders for revision of HBA as recommended by 7th CPC and accepted by the Cabinet.

6. While thanking the government for restoring Risk Allowance to the Defence Civilian Employees, the revised rate is very negligible. It should be at least at par with the Risk Matrix given to the Fire fighting Staff.

7. Staff Side, while thanking the government for restoration of some of the allowances, abolished/subsumed by the 7th CPC, asked the Finance Ministry to remove the barrier of coming back to Finance Ministry in case of 12 allowances meant for the Running Staff of the Indian Railways, being bilateral settlement with the Railway Ministry.

The Staff Side informed the Chairman that, considering the discontentment prevailing amongst the Central Government Employees, the Official Side may convey the feelings of the Staff Side to the Government on the above issues, and in case if ther is no positive approach from the Government, then there will be alternative than to plunge into Action Programmes.

The chairman, after a patient hearing, responded as follows :-

1. The views expressed by the Staff Side would be conveyed to the Government.

2. As regards, Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor, the Staff Side may give additional grounds and justification for any revision, so that the Official Side can consider the same.

3. After receipt of the above note from the Staff Side, the next meeting would be convened.

Comradely Yours,

Safeguarding the career prospect of Group A, Gr. B and Gr. C officers in all Central Govt. Departments by granting timely promotions

Safeguarding the career prospect of Group A, Gr. B and Gr. C officers in all Central Govt. Departments by granting timely promotions

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT GAZETTED OFFICERS’ ORGANISATIONS

Confederation/Corres/2016-17/16

Dated: 20.03.2017

To
Dr.Jitendra Singh,
Honourable Minister of State (Independent Charge),
PMO & Development of North Eastern Region,
Government of India
New Delhi.

Respected Sir,

Sub: Safeguarding the career prospect of Group A, Gr. B and Gr. C officers in all Central Govt. Departments by granting timely promotions – request regarding.

Kindly refer to the burgeoning impasse created in all Central Govt. Departments in respect of promotions in Gr. A, Gr. B and Gr. C cadres following the DoPT OM dated 30.09.2016 on reservation.

The process of holding DPC meetings for promotion from Gr. B to Gr. A cadres in all Departments was aborted by the UPSC immediately after the OM.No 36012/11/2016-Estt(Res) Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension Department of Personnel and Training dated 30.09.2016, in connection with the pending SLP/Contempt Petition in the case of Jarnail Sngh vs Lachhmi Narain Gupta in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, was issued. The UPSC categorically refused to hold any DPC to any grade having reservation element, unless the said OM is further clarified by DoPT to its satisfaction. It is learnt that the UPSC had sought clarification from DoPT immediately after the issuance of the said OM, and that no clarification has so far been issued by the DoPT.

As the UPSC is considered as the nodal agency for accepting various Instructions/OMs/Circulars issued by the Govt. of India time to time in relation to promotion and holds DPCs accordingly, the refusal of UPSC to hold DPC of any grade having reservation element unless the said OM is further clarified by DoPT has barred all cadre-controlling authorities in all Departments to hold DPCs for promotion in various Gr. B and Gr. C cadres As a result, all regular promotions into Group A, Group B and Group C cadres all over the country have been stalled

As a matter of fact, as the cut-off date for counting of mandatory residency period in all cadres is fixed on 1st of April by the DoPT, the seniority and due career prospect of many officers/officials across various Departments would suffer irreparably if the normal promotion is not accorded to them on or before 31.03.2017. And if it happens, these unfortunate officers will lose at least one year for all consecutive promotions in their career for no fault of themselves.

As per our understanding of the subject, until the DoPT issues clarification of the OM dated 30.09.2016 and help the UPSC to decide the future course of action in respect of promotions in Gr. B to Gr. A cadres in various Departments, neither the vacancy position at various levels in Departments would improve nor the career prospects of officers/officials would be protected.

In view of the above, we are constrained to seek the intervention of the Hon. Minister in directing the DOPT to clarify the issues raised by the UPSC so that the promotions of Officers/Officials who serve the Government of India do not suffer unjustifiably.

We do trust that the Honourable Minister will render justice to those who serve the Government of India

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely,
S/d,
(S. Mohan)
Secretary General

EPF members now required to submit self-declaration for advance in case of illness of members/ dependents

EPF members now required to submit self-declaration for advance in case of illness of members/ dependents

EPF members now required to submit self-declaration for advance in case of illness of members/ dependents

EPF members will now only be required to submit a self-declaration for the advance in case of illness of members/ dependents. Differently abled members will also get advance on the basis of self-declaration. A member will no longer be required to submit any medical certificate or any other certificate or document or proforma whatsoever to avail advances under paragraph 68-J or under paragraph 68-N of EPF Scheme 1952.

Ministry of Labour & Employment has amended Paragraph 68-J and Paragraph 68-N of Employees’ Provident Fund Scheme, 1952 and It will come into force from the date of its publication in the official Gazette. According to it, a member would only be required to submit a self-declaration, which has already been included in the composite claim form, to avail advance under the EPF Scheme in case of illness of members/ dependent and also in case of differently abled members.

This is in continuation of initiatives taken by EPFO as part of next phase of its e-governance reforms with a view to make the services of EPFO available to its stakeholder in an efficient and transparent manner. An administrative order was issued on 20.02.2017 in the matter of Introduction of Composite Claim Forms (Aadhar and Non-Aadhar ) to replace existing Claim Forms No. 19, 10C & 31 and Forms No. 19 (UAN), 10C(UAN) & 31 (UAN). EPFO has since implemented Universal Account Number (UAN) for its subscribers. It is now possible for subscribers, who have seeded their UAN with Aadhar Number and Bank account details, to submit claim forms directly to EPFO without the attestation of employers.

Cabinet approves setting up of 50 new Kendriya Vidyalayas in the country under Civil / Defence Sector

Cabinet approves setting up of 50 new Kendriya Vidyalayas in the country under Civil / Defence Sector

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs,chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the proposal for opening of 50 new KendriyaVidyalayas (KVs) under Civil / Defence Sector in the country keeping in view the high demand for these schools for their quality of education and excellent results.

The total project cost based on KendriyaVidyalayaSangathan (KVS) norms for the proposed 50 new KVs is Rs.1160 crore.

New KVs will be opened from classes I to V for which 650 regular posts shall be created in all 50 KendriyaVidyalayas. The school grows every year with addition of one more higher class and, when the school grows upto class XII and becomes a full fledged school with two sections in each class, there shall be a requirement of about 4000 regular posts of various categories i.e., about 2900 teaching posts and about 1100 non-teaching posts. These new KVs when fully functional will provide quality education to approximately 50,000 students in addition to the approximately 12 lakh students already studying in present KVs.

The new KVs will address the educational needs of eligible students with high quality standards and will play a role of pace-setting educational institutions in the districts concerned.

Background:

The main objective of KVS is to cater to the educational needs of children of transferable Central Government employees including Defence and Para-military personnel by providing a common programme of education. There are at present 1142 functional KendriyaVidyalayas under the KVS including three abroad at Moscow, Kathmandu and Tehran.

The KendriyaVidyalayas are considered as model schools in the country in terms of physical infrastructure, teaching resources, curriculum and academic performance. KendriyaVidyalayas as pace setting schools have consistently turned out excellent academic performance as is evident from the Board Results of Class X and XII exams conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

7th Pay Commission: Demonetisation delays higher allowances

7th Pay Commission: Demonetisation delays higher allowances

New Delhi: Higher allowances under 7th pay commission recommendations is set to be delayed as the cash crunch brought on by demonetisation has hit government’s major announcement for central government employees.

The committee on allowances has finalized the report on the allowances and the government has also sanctioned the funds, but the government is unable to pay it to its employees. On the other hand, the Finance Ministry is facing pressure from the central government employees’ unions which want immediate announcement of higher allowances.

“One of the the government major announcements that has got get affected in the cash crunch process is ‘fatter allowances’ for the central government employees. The announcement has now been postponed, We expect things to normalise January onwards from the current uncertainty, if things settle down, the announcement will be made.” a top official involved with the process of higher allowances told The Sen Times on the condition on anonymity.

He added that the decision on this matter to push since payments to the employees are made in ease and without facing cash crunch. Hence, the Finance Ministry felt it would be wiser to announce of higher allowances when things settle down.

Currently, the central government employees are getting allowances according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations while the government implemented hike in basic pay with retrospective effect from January 2016 in new pay structure under the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission for central government employees.

The government approved hike in basic pay in June but referred hike in allowances other than dearness allowance 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.

However, the 7th pay commission had recommended 138.71 percent hike in House Rent Allowance (HRA) and 49.79 percent for other allowances and the committee on allowances sticks with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations, the official confirmed.

After the cabinet approval, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had congratulated central government officers, employees and pensioners on a historic rise in their salary and allowances through the 7th pay commission recommendations but the central government employees have so far not been paid higher allowances.
