OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Travel entitlements of Government employees for the purpose of LTC post Seventh Central Pay Commission – clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M.of even no. dated 19.09.2017 on the subject noted above, which inter-alia provides that the travel entitlements of  Government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide Ministry of Finance’s O.M. No. 19030/1/2017-E.lV dated 13.07.2017, except the air travel  entitlement for Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, which is allowed in respect of TA only and not for LTC.

2. It is observed that many Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix had inadvertently travelled by air on LTC during the intervening period from 13.07.2017  to 19.09.2017 (i.e. post issue of MoF’s O.M. dated 13.07.2017 and before the issue of DoPT’s  O.M. dated 19.09.2017) under the impression that they were entitled for air travel as per the  revised TA rules. This Department is in receipt of references from the Government employees  and various Ministries/Departments seeking relaxation in respect of such Government  employees in view of the hardships faced by them in settlement of their LTC claims.

3. The matter has been examined in this Department in consultation with Department of Expenditure. In relaxation to this Department’s O.M. of even no. dated 19.09.2017, it has been decided to allow the claims of the Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, who had travelled by air as per the revised TA rules while availing LTC during 13.07.2017 to 19.09.2017. This shall be subject to the fulfillment of other conditions of air travel on LTC such as booking of air tickets through the authorised modes, fare limit of LTC-80, etc.

Government Hikes GPF Interest Rate To 8% For October-December quarter

Government Hikes GPF Interest Rate To 8% For October-December quarter.

The government has increased the rate of interest for General Provident Fund (GPF) and other related schemes by 0.4 percentage points to 8 per cent for the October-December quarter.

The rate is in line with that for Public Provident Fund.

The interest rate on GPF was 7.6 per cent for the July-September quarter of 2018-19.

“… during the year 2018-2019, accumulations at the credit of subscribers to the General Provident Fund and other similar funds shall carry interest at the rate of 8 per cent with effect from October 1, 2018, to December 31, 2018,” a Department of Economic Affairs’ notification said.

The interest rate would apply on Provident Funds of central government employees, railways and defence forces.

Last month, the government announced that the interest on small savings, including NSC and PPF, will be hiked by up to 0.4 percentage point for the October-December quarter, to align it with rising deposit rates in the banks.

North Block, New Delhi,
8th October 2018

Office Memorandum

Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2017-18

The undersinged is directed to convey the sanction of  the President to the grant of Non-productivity Linked Bonus to  30 days emoluments for the accounting year 2017-18 to the Central Government employees in Group ‘C’ and all non-gazetted employees in Group B, who are not covered by any Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. The calculation ceiling for payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders shall be monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000/-, as revised w.e.f 01/04/2014 vide OM No.7/4/2014-E.III(A), dated 29th August, 2016. The payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders will also be admissible to the eligible employees of Central Para Military Forces and Armed Forces. The orders will be deemed to be extended to the employees of Union Territory Administration which follow the Central Government pattern of emoluments and are not covered by any other bonus or ex-gratia scheme.

2. The benefit will be admissible subject to the following terms and conditions:-

(i) Only those employees who were in service as on 31.3.2018 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2017-18 will be eligible for payment under these orders.

(ii) The quantum of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) will be worked out on the basis of average emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower. To calculate Non- PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for one day, the average emoluments in a year will be divided by 30.4 (average number of days in a month). This will, thereafter, be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

(iii) The casual labour who have worked in offices following a 6 days week for at least 240 days for each year for 3 years or more (206 days in each year for 3 years or more in the case of offices observing 5 day week), will be eligible for this Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) Payment. The amount of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) payable will be (Rs.1200×30/30.4 i,e.Rs.1184 21 (rounded off to Rs.1184/-). in cases where the actual emoluments fall below Rs.1200/- p.m., the amount will be calculated on actual monthly emoluments.

(iv) All payments under these orders will be rounded off to the nearest rupee.

(v) Various points regarding regulation of Ad-hoc / Non-PLB Bonus are given in the Annexure.

3. The expenditure on this account will be debitable to the respective Heads to which the pay and allowances of these employees are debited.

4. The expenditure to be incurred on account of Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) is to be met from within the sanctioned budget provision of concerned Ministries/Departments for the current year.

5. In so far as the persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned. these orders are issued in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

7th CPC Bonus Recommendations Report

7th CPC Bonus Recommendations Report

The Terms of Reference (ToR) of the Commission mandate that it examines the existing schemes for payment of bonus and their impact on performance and productivity.

Consultation with Stakeholders was Considered Important: The system of Performance Linked Bonus (PLB) and Ad hoc Bonus have been prevalent in the Central Government for a fairly long time. Therefore, for the replacement of the existing bonus schemes with any other incentive scheme, prior consultation with the stakeholders was considered essential

The Commission feels that there is strong need to create a culture of performance in government – from establishing standards of performance, to measuring, and promoting people based on performance. To emphasize on the culture of performance, the Commission has recommended that all the non-performers in the system should be phased out after 20 years. The Commission has recommended that Performance Related Pay should be introduced in the government and that all Bonus payments should necessarily be linked with productivity.

Bonus Schemes and Performance Related Pay

The Commission feels that any Performance Related Pay (PRP) for Central Government employees should provide a credible framework to drive performance across ministries/departments. Rather than a new system design, the favoured approach should be an incremental adaptation which can operate within the existing framework of rules with minor changes that can enable smooth implementation and operationalization of PRP.

In this backdrop, the Commission recommends introduction of the Performance Related Pay for all categories of Central Government employees, based on quality RFDs, reformed APARs and broad Guidelines, as enumerated above.

The Commission also recommends that the PRP should subsume the existing Bonus schemes. The Commission notes that there could be a time lag in implementing the Performance Related Pay by different departments. Till such time, the existing Bonus Schemes should be reviewed and linked with increased profitability/productivity under well-defined financial parameters.


Bonus Calculation: To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).

Central Government Rejects the Demand to Scrap National Pension System

Central Government Rejects the Demand to Scrap National Pension System

Abolition of Contributory Pension Scheme

Representations have been received from various Associations of Government Employees on the problems being faced and the demand to withdraw the National Pension System (NPS). The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) also in its report examined the issues related to NPS and made recommendations for addressing these issues.

Pursuant thereto, it was decided to constitute a Committee of Secretaries to suggest measures for streamlining NPS. The Committee has submitted its report. Due to rising and unsustainable pension bill and keeping in view of fiscal imperatives, it is not possible for the government to revert back to old pension scheme.

This information was provided by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance Shri. Shiv Pratap Shukla in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 24.7.2018.

7th Central Pay Commission Recommendations on Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th CPC Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

7th Central Pay Commission Recommendations on Allowances Related to Working on Holidays

Allowances Covered

1. Holiday Compensatory Allowance

2. Holiday Monetary Compensation

3. National Holiday Allowance

Employees, who are regularly required to work on holidays, are compensated in a variety of ways. Some, like the employees of Delhi Police and the CISF, are granted an extra month’s pay per year. Employees of other CAPFs are granted extra thirty days’ leave. Some other categories of staff are paid allowances, which are dealt with in this section. There are 3 such allowances.

1. Holiday Compensatory Allowance

It is a compensation for non-gazetted staff of IB who are required to perform duties on holidays and weekends; granted at the rate of one day’s (Basic Pay + DA) for up to thirty days in a financial year. No demands have been received regarding this allowance.

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission notes that employees in almost all ministries/departments are, sometimes, required to work on weekends. They are usually compensated by providing a “compensatory off.” Thus, grant of an allowance for weekend working is not justified.

At the same time, the sensitive, and time bound nature of work done by IB should also be kept in mind. Therefore, it is recommended that the non-gazetted staff of IB, presently covered under Holiday Compensatory Allowance, should, henceforth, be covered by National Holiday Allowance. They will be granted this allowance for up to twelve holidays in a year (including the three National Holidays) at the rates prescribed. Accordingly, Holiday Compensatory Allowance, as a separate allowance, should be abolished.

[Government Decision on Holiday Compensatory Allowance: Abolished as a separate allowance. Eligible employees to be governed by National Holiday Allowance. Not to be subsumed and retained as a separate allowance. Existing system to continue in Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)]

2. Holiday Monetary Compensation

This allowance is granted in Department of Posts and is payable to postmen and other departmental staff who are required to perform duty on second holiday if three consecutive holidays occur. The existing rates are:

Category  Rate of Remuneration
Supervisor  Rs.85 per holiday for 4 hours
Postal Assistant  Rs.85 per holiday for 4 hours
Postmen Sorting Postmen/Rs.85 per holiday
Multi-tasking staff  Rs.60 per holiday for 4 hours

Demands have been received to increase the rate of this allowance to Rs.600 per holiday.

Analysis and Recommendations

Since the allowance is not DA indexed, it is proposed to raise the amount to Rs.200 per holiday for Supervisors, Postal Assistants and Postmen/Sorting Postmen; and Rs.150 per holiday for Multi-tasking Staff. The rate of allowance will further increase by 25 percent each time DA increases by 50 percent.

[Government Decision on Holiday Monetary Compensation: Retained. Rationalized. Accepted ]

3. National Holiday Allowance

This allowance is paid to non-gazetted Railway employees who are rostered to work on a “National Holiday.” The existing rates are:

Pay in Pay Band + Grade Pay  Rate
up to Rs.7260  Rs.256 per day
Rs.7261-Rs.9700  Rs.318 per day
Rs.9701 and above (limited to non-gazetted staff)  Rs.420 per day

There are demands to increase the amount of this allowance to 1.5 x (one day’s Basic Pay + DA)

Analysis and Recommendations

The Commission notes that although there are only three National Holidays, this allowance is granted for twelve days in a year due to operational constraints. Also, the allowance is already partially indexed to the DA. Hence, it is recommended that the amount should be increased by 50 percent to the following:

Level Rate of Allowance (per day)
1 and 2 Rs.384
3 to 5  Rs.477
6 to 8 (limited to non-gazetted staff)  Rs.630

The rate of allowance will further increase by 25 percent each time DA rises by 50 percent.

[Government Decision on National Holiday Allowance: Retained. Enhanced by 50%. Accepted ]

The instructions issued by the Department of Personnel and Training prohibit the Government servants from participating in any form of strike including mass casual leave, go slow or any action that abet any form of strike in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(I) of the Fundamental Rules, pay and allowances is not admissible to an employee for his absence from duty without any authority. As to the concomitant rights of an Association after it is formed, they cannot be different from the rights which can be claimed by the individual members of which the Association is composed. It follows that the right to form an Association does not include any guaranteed right to strike. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also ruled in several judgments that going on a strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by the Government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. No.33012/1/(s)/2008-Estt.(B) dated 12.9.2008, on the subject for strict compliance (enclosed as Annexure-A).

3. All officers are requested that the above instructions may be brought to the notice of the employees working under their control. All officers are also requested not to sanction Casual Leave or any other kind of leave to the officers and employees, if applied for, during the period of proposed protest, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of protest, i.e., 19.09.2018.

All India Pension Adalat – 600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

All India Pension Adalat – 600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions

MoS Dr Jitendra Singh to inaugurate the All India Pension Adalat and give away Anubhav Awards on Tuesday

600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

17 SEP 2018

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 will inaugurate the All India Pension Adalat here tomorrow.

The Pension Adalat, being organised by the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare (DoP&PW), will be one of the largest exercises for Pensioners’ Welfare ever undertaken by the Government as part of Good Governance dedicated to Central Government Pensioners. It is a unique effort wherein on a single day all the Central Government Ministries would be conducting their respective Pension Adalats in which on-the-spot resolution would be provided across the table to the grievance holder.

All the stakeholders of the pensioner’s case viz. the Department, Pay and Account Officer, the concerned Bank, along with the pensioner or his representative, will settle the grievance within the framework of extant rules. This is a great reformative measure to get the grievances resolved in the quickest possible way by avoiding unnecessary recourse by the pensioners to Courts.

It is expected that this measure will resolve issues of thousands of pensioners in one day, in a single sitting across the country. In addition to the Central Ministries, the Offices of Accountant General would be separately addressing the Pensioner grievances of All-India Service officers, in all the states across the country.

Besides the Pension Adalat, a Pre-Retirement Counselling (PRC) is also scheduled for the Central Government employees who are about to retire in the next six months. 600 retiring Central Government employees will participate in this PRC out of which a significant number will also be from the Central Armed Police Forces. The objective of the PRC Workshop is to create awareness about post-retirement entitlements as well as to educate them on advance planning for retirement including medical facilities and participation in voluntary activities after retirement.

On the occasion, Dr. Jitendra Singh will also give away the Anubhav Awards-2018 to recognise the contribution of the Central Government employees to the Anubhav Portal which is designed to create an institutional memory for successive generations of Central Government employees. It may be recalled that the Anubhav scheme had been instituted at the call of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in the year 2015. This is meant to encourage retiring and retired employees to submit an account of their experiences while working in the government and thereby create an institutional memory to help in future governance as well as to motivate and inspire different generations of government officials in their respective assignments. The scheme has resulted in registering more than 5,000 Anubhavs from Government employees till date from 91 Departments.

7th Pay Commission: No hike in minimum pay, No change in fitment factor and No change in retirement age [Modi’s I Day speech]

7th Pay Commission: No hike in minimum pay, No change in fitment factor and No change in retirement age [Modi’s I Day speech]

7thCPC-No-hike-pay-fitmentfactor-retirement age

What next for Central government employees?

There was a bitter disappointment in store for fifty lakh Central government employees and an equal number of retirees, who have been waiting for a hike in minimum pay and fitment factor beyond the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. There was lot of speculation that PM Narendra Modi may give some good news in his last Independence Day budget in this term as PM. Many believed that looking at good monsoon and positive economic factors, a positive announcement may come months before the general elections.

While PM Modi spoke about how Indian economy will be a powerhouse in next three decades, he didn’t have any news to offer for the government employees.

Minister of State for Finance P. Radhakrishnan earlier in Lok Sabha had said that the Prime Minister’s Narendra Modi government is not planning to give any hike in minimum basic salary beyond the recommendations of the seventh pay commission. However, the Haryana government approved pay scale recommendations of teaching and non-teachings staff at government universities, government universities and govt-aided colleges with effect from Jan 1,2016.

The Maha government also has announced a salary hike under 7th Pay Commission from January 2019 for 17 lakh state employees. . So obviously the Central government employees are also hoping for some positive news. It may be noted that the government at any time can announce such a decision, and it doesn’t need to be on a special day. It may come closer in the heels to the election.

It is to be noted though that in the hopes of minimum pay hike beyond the recommendations of the 7th CPC might get a blow from the Central Bank itself. Earlier this month, RBI decided to increase the policy repo rate by 25 basis points to 6.5%. The reverse repo rate has been hiked to 6.25%, the RBI announced after its three-day Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting.

“RBI’s Monetary Policy Committee has decided to increase the policy repo rate under the liquidity adjustment facility (LAF) by 25 basis points to 6.5% Consequently, the reverse repo rate under the LAF stands adjusted to 6.25% and marginal standing facility rate and Bank Rate to 6.75%,” the apex bank said in a statement.

RBI in its report mentioned that inflation rates have increased on account of implementation of 7th Pay Commission. The revised HRA structure came into place in July 2017 under the 7th Pay Commission.

Currently, the Central government employees are getting basic pay according to the fitment formula of 2.57 of the basic pay and if this big step is taken, it will come as a massive news for the Central government employees. Fitment factor is a figure used by 7th CPC with which the basic pay in 6th CPC regime (i.e Pay in Pay band + Grade pay) is multiplied in order to fix basic pay in revised pay structure (i.e 7th CPC). Fitment factor formulated by 7th CPC is 2.57.

There were talks about Modi raising the retirement age of central government employees. That also didn’t come through
