7th CPC related issues – Review of agitational programmes organised by Confederation and the present position of the various demands raised in the charter of demands

7th CPC related issues – Review of agitational programmes organised by Confederation and the present position of the various demands raised in the charter of demands – Future course of action.

The National Secretariat reviewed various agitational programmes independently organised by Confederation viz: Massive Parliament March on 15-12-2016, one day nationwide strike on 16-03-2017, Mass Dharna organised in front of Finance Minister’s Office on 23-05-2017, Human Chain of Central Govt. employees on 22-06-2017 and Burning of the HRA orders on 25-07-2017. It is reported by all National Secretariat members that the employees and pensioners had participated in large number in all the above programmes.

The Government has already implemented Revised Pay Scales, Revised Allowances and Revised Pension based on 5th CPC recommended parity formula for pre-2016 pensioners. The assurances given by Group of Ministers on 30-06-2016 regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula still remains unimplemented. Govt. has not considered the demand to restore HRA rate to 30%, 20% and 10% and implement it from 01-01-2016. All revised allowances are implemented prospectively from 01-07-2017 thereby denying arrears from 01-01-2016. The Option-I parity for pensioners recommended by 7th CPC is rejected by the Government, instead 5th CPC recommended parity is extended to all pre-2016 pensioners. The “very good” bench mark condition imposed for grant of MACP is not yet modified. Even though NPS Committee constituted by Govt. for streamlining NPS has submitted its report to Government, its recommendations are still not made public. The demand for withdrawal of Contributory Pension Scheme and guaranteeing minimum pension (50% of the last pay drawn) is still pending. All other demands raised in the confederation and NJCA charter of demands are also remaining unsettled.

Unfortunately, inspite of the totally negative attitude and non-honouring of the assurance given to NJCA by the BJP-led NDA Government, the dominant leadership of NJCA is not in favour of reviving the deferred indefinite strike and no serious agitational programmes was organised after 6th July 2016 (i.e. after deferring the strike) under the united banner of NJCA, which compelled the Confederation to demarcate and organise independent struggle programmes as mentioned above including one day nation-wide strike.

The National Secretariat meeting took note of the above situation and decided to request once again the Railway Federations which are leading the NJCA as Chairman (NFIR) and Convenor (AIRF) to chalk out serious agitational programmes including strike under the banner of NJCA. Confederation National Secretariat strongly felt that to make the Govt. to honour its assurance on Minimum Pay and Fitment formula, to grant enhanced rate of HRA from 01-01-2016, to get Option-I parity implemented for pre-2016 pensioners, to modify the retrograde bench mark condition for MACP, to scrap NPS and ensure guaranteed minimum pension, to settle the justified demands of Gramin Dak Sevaks and Casual, Contract Workers, a united indefinite strike under the banner of NJCA (Railway, Defence & Confederation) is the need of the hour.

In the absence of a united struggle under the banner of NJCA, the Confederation National Secretariat decided to organise the following agitational programmes in a phased manner.

1. Mass dharna at all District headquarters demanding settlement of modified charter of demands of Confederation on 19th September 2017 (Tuesday).

2. Mass dharna at all state capitals on 17th October, 2017 (Tuesday).

3. Three days massive relay dharna in front of Parliament from 9th November to 11th November 2017 along with Central Trade Unions.

4. Indefinite strike in 2018 jointly along with Central Trade Unions. (Date will be finalised by the Central Trade Unions and independent Federations including Confederation).

All affiliated organisations and COCs are requested to make the above programmes a grand success. As the NDA Government is aggressively implementing the neo-liberal policies in all sectors, it is our responsibility to join hands with the entire trade unions and unitedly resist the onslaught. If the Govt. is not ready to change its destructive policies, the workers have no option but to embark upon a prolonged struggle jointly with the suffering common people of our country, to change the Government. It is in this background Confederation National Secretariat decided to join with the 3 days mass dharna at New Delhi and indefinite strike. In the meantime, if NJCA meets and take decisions for any agitational programmes, confederation shall implement the programmes of NJCA also. Modified charter of demands of the Confederation is also enclosed herewith.

6.All India Women’s Trade Union Workshop-2017

The National Secretariat decided to organise “All India Women’s Trade Union Workshop-2017″ in the month of November/December 2017. C-O-C Maharashtra (Mumbai) is requested to discuss and inform their readiness to hold the workshop at Mumbai as there is larger concentration of women employees in Mumbai.

As the train reservation commences four months before, the decision of the C-O-C Mumbai should be communicated to the CHQ before 21-08-2017. On confirming the place only quota to each organisation and C-O-Cs etc. are to be fixed. The C-O-C Mumbai is requested to communicate their decision immediately.

7. Holding of a special convention/meeting of Autonomous body employees organisations and Autonomous body pensioners organistions.

The National Secretariat discussed the situation arising out of abnormal delay in revision of pay of Autonomous body employees and also non-issuing of orders for revision of pension of autonomous body pensioners by the concerned Autonomous bodies/Administrative Ministries. In the case of Autonomous body employees, eventhough the Finance Ministry has issued orders extending the 7th CPC pay scales to autonomous body employees on 13-01-2017, the orders are not implemented in 95% of the autonomous bodies due to the stringent conditions imposed by the Finance Ministry. In the case of Autonomous body pensioners, the stand taken by Finance Ministry and Pension Ministry is that they will not issue any orders for revision of pension or grant of Dearness Relief to Autonomous body pensioners. Earlier during 5th CPC and 6th also they have not issued any separate orders, Once Govt. issues orders for revision of pension and grant of dearness relief to Central Govt. Pensioners, it is upto the autonomous bodies to issue orders based on that orders, in consultation with their Administrative Ministries. But no Administrative Ministry has taken action for revision of pension and grant of dearness relief to Autonomous body pensioners. In short a serious crisis has developed regarding revision of pay scales of Autonomous body employees and Revision of Pension and grant of dearness relief to Autonomous body pensioners.

In the view of the above it is decided to convene a special meeting of all Autonomous body employees organisations and Autonomous body pensioners organisations to discuss and decide future course of action. Date and venue of the meeting will finalised shortly.

8. Problems of affiliated organisations of confederation.

Issues relating to the following departments are discussed and suitable decisions taken.

(1) Geological Survey of India

(2) Printing, Publications & stationary.

(3) Ground water Board.

(4) DAVP

(5) Civil Accounts

(6) Passport

Meeting Commenced at 11 AM and ended at 6 PM.

7th Pay Commission: Lower pay not to root out corruption

7th Pay Commission: Lower pay not to root out corruption

New Delhi: Corruption is rampant in many of the central government’s offices, despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s warning that corruption was eating away at India “like a termite“.

Accordingly, the government should consider to root out corruption in the Indian bureaucracy and the official system through ensuring the proper wages and benefits for government employees.

The 50 lakh central government employees are now getting 14.27 % hike in their basic pay under the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission, which is the lowest in 70 years.

The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike in the basic pay, which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.

The 7th Pay Commission slashed down House Rent Allowance (HRA), which constitutes a substantial part of central government employees’ salaries. The Commission had recommended HRA at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of basic pay of the central government employees and the government stuck with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations on HRA and gave nod accordingly.

While The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent for X, Y and Z category of cities respectively.

The hike in HRA, which gives more money in the pockets of the employees, that’s compensatory perks for all central government employees, which has been paid from July 1 and no arrears for any allowance was paid, as per usual practice, the allowances are paid from the date of implementation.

The allowances, including House Rent Allowance (HRA) rates, started to disburse from July 1, this year, while, the 7th Pay Commission award was implemented from 1 January 2016.

There had been widespread demand from central government employee unions to hike HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 percent of basic pay and to be given arrears on allowances including HRA.

“The demands of central government employees over their pay scales as well as minimum pay and allowances are likely not to be considered by the National Anomaly Committee on behalf of the government,” the finance ministry sources said.

“Finance Minister Arun Jaitley finally decided not to give any facility to central government employees better than the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and the government stuck with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations on pay scales and allowances,” the sources added.

The central government employees unions had also demanded for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and asked to raising fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times, which was implemented by the government based on the pay commission recommendations.

If the 2.57 fitment formula is tinkered with, then salary and pension in general for all central government employees will go up.

The minimum pay and allowances should be hiked for central government employees immediately by the government on the acceptance of the unions’ proposals.

Such a move would help to start countering the criminally extortionate mind-set which embeds corruption in many government posts as a way of mitigating low wages. Better-paid staff are more motivated in performing their jobs well and in working to root out corruption.

Implementing such an approach to government employees salaries has been shown to work very well in countries such as Singapore. If we are to emulate this here, the government also needs to take a more rational approach to managing is resources.

This would allow the government to pay, recruit, and retain higher quality government officials and begin to root out corruption and poor quality in public services, once and for all.

7th Pay Commission – Government Firmly Rejects Demand to Reduce Pay Gap

7th Pay Commission – Government Firmly Rejects Demand to Reduce Pay Gap

The pay gap under the 7th Pay Commission was a major issue for Central Government employees. The cabinet decided go ahead with the recommendations of the pay panel which suggested 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay which was effective from January 1 2016.

7th Pay Commission Pay Gap

The cabinet had cleared the recommendations of the pay panel in June which effected 4.8 million central government employees and 5.2 million pensioners.

Recommendations by-passed

While clearing the pay panel’s recommendations the basic hike in pay effective January 1 2016 was at 14.27 per cent. The recommendations made by the Empowered Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha for an average 30 per cent hike in basic pay was bypassed by the Union Cabinet.

Pay matrix

As per the notification there were 18 pay matrices that were approved. The notification said, the highest pay matrix (Level-18) for the Cabinet secretary to the Union government is Rs 2,50,000 (fixed), which was Rs 90,000 (fixed) in the immediate past under 6th pay commission recommendation. The rate of increase is 178%. The pay matrix in the lowest grade (Level-1) is Rs 18,000 which was Rs 7,000 under 6th pay commission recommendation. The rate of increase is 157%.

The ratio of pay between the highest declared pay matrix (Level-18) and the lowest grade (Level -1) in the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is 1:13.9, which was 1:12 as per the previous pay commission:

No Pay Gap made up

All pay commissions in the past had made up the pay gap between the lower paid employees and the top officials from second Pay Commission 1:41 ratio to Sixth pay commission 1:12. In the first pay commission, the pay of the top bureaucrats was 41 times higher than the employee earning the lowest. The future pay commissions however reduced the ratio from 1:41 in 1947 to about 1:12 in 2006.

Reducing Pay Gap Ruled Out

Reliable sources confirm, the government has put aside the demand by central government employees to reduce the pay gap. The government has categorically made it clear that no decision will be taken to reduce the pay gap under the 7th Pay Commission, confirm sources. Government employees have been demanding for a long time to pay ratio should be minimised. They have also demanded that Rs 25,000 should be the minimum pay in the new pay scale and the fitment factor will be higher than the 2.57 times approved by the government based on the pay commission recommendations.

Centre Government To Cut 25 Percent Government Jobs

Centre Government To Cut 25 Percent Government Jobs

New Delhi: Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) sources verified on condition of anonymity that 25 percent full-time central government jobs will be cut.

It is an attempt to improve the country’s financial health system, the sources added that the job cuts are needed to sustain the government’s expenditure.

“The reality is that we are not as efficient in managing our system as other developed countries are,” sources said.

The sources also stated that over the last few years, Pay, Allowances and Pension (PAP) spending constitutes around 3.6 per cent of GDP.

The sources also noted that voluntary redundancies would be offered central government employees who having put in 20 years service or above 55 years.

More than other jobs are expected to go of the central government employees, whose performance is not upto the mark. Overall, the centre will lay off 25 percent full-time central government jobs.

The central government employees unions said they will strongly oppose any government jobs cut scheme, if it is announced.

They claim the job cuts would mean the central government employees are forced to bear the impact of the country’s financial problems. The unions leaders add that budget cuts on Pay, Allowances and Pension would also lead to suffer government smooth business and public service.

However, the sources acknowledged that the central government employees are well paid but the government needs to be more transparent in decisions regarding jobs in the central government department and ministry as the government employees from junior staff to top bureaucrats are not so talent.

So, the government committed to appoint best available talent from out side on the recommendation of the Niti Aayog and the government is mulling to appoint one-fifth of the 25 percent full-time central government jobs cut staff from out side in its departments and ministries.

The central government salaries accounts Rs 128,000 crore in 2017-18 of the nation expenditure. The sources claimed that without making significant changes in salaries costs, this would affect other areas including education, health care and infrastructure.

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

7thCPC-Child-Care-Leave-CCL

No.NC/JCM/2017

Dated: August 4, 2017

The Secretary(DoP&T),
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)
North Block, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

It may please be recalled that, the 6th CPC, accepting the consistent demand of the Staff Side for grant of Child Care Leave to Women Central Government Employees, had recommended maximum two years CCL for women government employees for taking care of maximum two children, as a welfare measure the women government employee for taking care of maximum two children as a welfare measure. Women government employees were availing this specific leave for taking care of their children with 100% salary for a maximum period of two years, owing to certain difficulties having being experienced by the employer, certain conditions were subsequently laid down to avail CCL by women government employees.

One of the subsequently introduced conditions was that, they can avail their leave in maximum 3 spell during in a calendar year. While 7th CPC has duly acknowledged the requirement of CCL for women government employees as well as single male employees and recommended that the practice should continue as hitherto, additionally entitling single male employee to avail the same, but unfortunately, imposed another new condition that, although for the first 365 CCL 100% salary would be payable. However, for subsequent 365 days only 80% of their salary to be paid.

It may be appreciated that, provision of CCL to women government employees with the sole motto of taking care of their children, particularly at the time the children are in grave need of the same, a welfare measure at the same was being granted with 100% salary before the report of the 7th CPC came in the effect.

Therefore, imposition of the condition of 80% salary payable in the 2nd spell of 365 days is grossly unjustified and uncalled for and would result in withdrawal of a well acknowledged welfare measure.

It is, therefore, requested that the issue may be looked into in the light of the foregoing the earlier practice of payment of 100% salary of the entire 2 years may please be restored as a noble employer.

Comradely yours

Married daughter to get family pension during pendency of divorce case

Married daughter to get family pension during pendency of divorce case

New Delhi: The married daughter of a central government employee, who is no more, will get family pension even during the pendency of a divorce case, the Centre has said.

Existing rules allow divorced daughters to get family pension only if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents.

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has recently changed rules to help such women facing divorce cases in court.

The decision comes as the government was receiving grievances from various quarters that the divorce proceedings take years before attaining finality.

There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of the daughter of a government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life time of one or both of the parents but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority, the ministry said.

“The matter has been examined in this department in consultation with Department of Expenditure and it has been decided to grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed in a competent court during the life-time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death,” the ministry said.

However, the grant of family pension will be subjected to fulfilment of other eligibility criteria as well, it added.

Family pension is given to a spouse of a dead government servant or to dependent children.

7th Pay Commission: New allowances to come under income tax

7th Pay Commission: New allowances to come under income tax

7thPayCommission_allowances_income_ tax

New Delhi: A Senior Finance Ministry official said income tax will be imposed on the New allowances of central government employees under 7th Pay Commission recommendations from financial year 2017-18.

The Finance Bill 2017 proposed tax treatment on basic salary, bonus and allowances etc for both government and non-government salaried employees.

If all allowances excluding basic salary of central government employees are made tax free which will shows discrimination to others, he said.

The central government employees unions demanded many times that all new allowances under 7th Pay Commission recommendations should be income tax exempted.

The government implemented the new pay structure from January, 2016 for central government employees excluding allowances, the compensatory perks for all employees, which has been implemented from July 1, 2017.

The unions demanded for implementation of the allowances with retrospective effect from January 2016. However, there is a usual practice to pay the allowances from the date of implementation.

The officer also informed our reporter that the government had no plan since begaining to give allowances in arrears.

Keeping salaries and allowances hikes in mind, the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley allocated Rs 1.02 lakh crore in the 2016-17 Union budget for paying the central government employees.

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

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

The central government employees are deeply annoyed at little allowances hike without arrears.

The bone of contention between central government employees’unions and government, the House Rent Allowance (HRA), which unions demanded at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 percent of basic pay with arrears.

While the government approved 7th Pay Commission recommendations for reduction in the HRA rates to 24 per cent for X, 16 per cent for Y and 8 per cent for Z category of cities, which came into effect from July 1, 2017 and no arrears were paid.

Accordingly, The huge resentment among the central government employees over little allowances hike without arrears and the central government employees unions are threatening to strike over their growing anger about little allowances hike without arrears.

7th Pay Commission – Finmin: MACP on performance to be reconsidered ?

7th Pay Commission – Finmin: MACP on performance to be reconsidered ?

New Delhi: Good-performing Central government employees will now get MACP if their performance is not upto the mark of “very good”, the Finance Ministry officials told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.

They has said the government will reconsider the benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation, which was enhanced to “very good” from “good” level for central government employees under the the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme continues to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years of service as before, the officials said as it “accepted” the pay panel’s recommendations.

However “good” benchmark on ACR/APAR (Annual Confidential Report/Annual Performance Appraisal Report) of the employees and officers that will help them now get MACP, they added.

“The government had a wrong idea about MACP. Now, the concepts have become clear to the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley,” they confirmed.

The government implemented the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission from August 2016. The central government employees also got arrears from January 2016.

The pay panel had in its report said that performance benchmarks for MACP should be enhanced to “very good” from “good”.

The pay panel also proposed that annual increments not be granted in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or for a regular promotion in the first 20 years of their service.

The government accepted both proposals in June 2016 with basic salary hike but proposal increasing allowances has been accepted on June 28, 2017, which comes into effect from July 1, 2017 without arrears, which made resentment among the central government employees.

Central Government fails to implement 7th pay commission arrears on allowances

Central Government fails to implement 7th pay commission arrears on allowances

New Delhi: Despite all that has been said about the arrears on allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, an important issue for central government employees, which has now been notified on June 6 without arrears.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had claimed his commitment to implement the allowances after four months of the basic pay hike but it failed to come true.

More than 18 months have passed since the 7th pay commission report was submitted and 11 months have elapsed since the union cabinet approved the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for basic salary hike of central government employees, the centre now notified 7th pay commission allowances without arrears.

The government has given higher basic pay in August 2016 with arrears, effective from January 1, 2016 to its employees on the recommendations of the 7th pay commission but the increased allowances, which comes into effect from July 1, 2017.

The government used delaying tactics to save the government money to pay revised allowances without arrears. Hence the ‘Committee on Allowances’ headed by the Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was formed for examination allowances.

However. the government stuck with the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations on allowances and gave nod accordingly but no recommendation of the ‘Committee on Allowances’ was approved.

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

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

The non-payment of arrears on allowances has caused tremendous irritation and frustration among the central government employees.

7th Pay Commission: Pay, allowances raise new hopes for central government employees

7th Pay Commission: Pay, allowances raise new hopes for central government employees

New Delhi: After long wait, the 7th Pay Commission award has been fully implemented including allowances, which has been implemented from July 1, it has increased new hopes among the central government employees that their allowances has been hiked.

The Union Cabinet cleared the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension on June 29 and government notified higher allowances on July 7, 2017 for its 4.8 million employees and 5.2 million pensioners, in a bid to ease the inflationary pressure.

“Allowances contribute 63 percent in the pay hike recommendation. The allowances which the commission proposed is very substantial. So, the central government employees now not only get 14.28 per cent hike in pay but also to get new allowances, which providing for full compensation to the central government employees,” a top Finance Ministry’s official told.

Government jobs in India have been less rewarding in terms of pay and allowances. Apart from a sense of job security and perceived power, most of the employees have to struggle to make ends meet with the cost of living going up every year.

The central government employees are seeing inflation catch up with their pay rises as the cost of living rises faster despite of government figure.

With the current basic pay hike and steep inflation, it is not possible for central government employees to make ends meet. It is also impossible to sustain with their current basic pay without hike in allowances. Inflation has climbed steadily over the past few years, which the new allowances will help to compensate.

Accordingly, the new allowances will hopefully attract central government employees to live with dignity and the quality of service delivery in central government offices is expected to improve which will in turn contribute to higher productivity and growth for the nation.
