The Union Government has decided to make timely payment of accumulations under the Savings Fund of the CGEGIS

The Union Government has decided to make timely payment of accumulations under the Savings Fund of the Central Government Employee Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS)

The Union Government has decided that in all cases where the service of the retiring Central Government employees has been verified, payment of the accumulation under Savings Fund of Central Government Employee Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) will be made without awaiting confirmation of deduction of each monthly subscription of CGEGIS. This would help in timely payment of accumulations under the Savings Fund of the CGEGIS. The necessary Orders in this regard have been issued by Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance on 17.03.2017.

Often delay occurs in payment of dues to the retiring Central Government employees as the existing procedure requires confirmation of deduction of each monthly subscription to the scheme. The present decision of the Union Government is a step towards simplification of procedure as well as to ensure timely payment of savings along with interest under CGEGIS, to the Central Government employees at the time of retirement.

Under the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme, 1980, the accumulations under the component of Savings Fund together with interest thereon are payable to the employees on retirement or on cessation of employment with the Central Government or to their family on death while in service.

Government ignored 7th CPC recommendation of CGEGIS to give High risk Cover

CGEGIS was Modified by 7th CPC to give High Risk Cover, but Govt ignored

The Best Recommendation for CGEGIS is ignored by all

Apart from Pay Matrix there is one more thing we need to appreciate 7th Pay Commission for its recommendations. The recommendations on living benefits are only debated much in discussions. But the 7th CPC has put human face and showed its magnanimity while recommending CGEGIS for Central Government Employees with high risk cover.

 

Spending 1500 Rupees every month for overcoming the uncertainty in life to save the family is not at all a matter of concern for Group C Government servants. Because the family of a Group C Employee gets 15 Lakh Rupees at the unfortunate loss of its breadwinners life.

 

But the central government simply ignored this recommendation and no federations hasn’t say anything about that. It shows its lack of clear vision in every aspects of life beyond service conditions.

7th CPC Recommended the following Risk Cover with Premium Return Benefits on Retirement.

7th-CPC-CGEGIS-Rates

In case of Group C Employee’s death, the family will be Paid Rs.15 Lakhs
If It happens to Group B Employee, the family will get Rs.25 lakhs
For Group A it will be Rs.50Lakh

At present a family of Group C employee cannot get Rs.1500000 from Terminal benefits in case of an employee’s death. There are lot of families are suffering without sufficient income as the Pension benefits are not at par with Money required to live a decent life. After 2004, All the Central Government Servants are covered under NPS. As of now no one knows how much the family will get in case of death of a Government Servant covered under NPS.

The Federation must keep in mind all aspects mentioned above and should insists the Government to accept the recommendations of 7th CPC on CGEGIS

The 7th Pay Commission had recommended the following rates for Central government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS). The subscription amount has been increased considerably to increase the Insurance amount .

This has been objected by NCJCM in its memorandum. It demanded to reduce the monthly deduction as it is much higher than the Premium rates available for Term life Insurance in Open Market. The Central Government accepted this demand and rejected this recommendation and asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.

The Press release issued by the Central Government says,

” The Cabinet also decided not to accept the steep hike in monthly contribution towards Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) recommended by the Commission. The existing rates of monthly contribution will continue. This will increase the take home salary of employees at lower levels by Rs. 1470. However, considering the need for social security of employees, the Cabinet has asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.”

Now the existing rate of CGEGIS is as under:-

Reminder: Highlights of Recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission

Reminder: Highlights of Recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission
7th-Pay-Commission-Report-7CPC
 
Minimum Pay: Based on the Aykroyd formula, the minimum pay in government is recommended to be set at Rs.18,000 per month.
 
Maximum Pay: Rs.2,25,000 per month for Apex Scale and Rs.2,50,000 per month for Cabinet Secretary and others presently at the same pay level.
Financial Implications:
The total financial impact in the FY 2016-17 is likely to be Rs.1,02,100 crore, over the expenditure as per the ‘Business As Usual’ scenario.  Of this, the increase in pay would be Rs.39,100 crore, increase in allowances would be Rs. 29,300 crore and increase in pension would be Rs.33,700 crore.
Out of the total financial impact of Rs.1,02,100 crore, Rs.73,650 crore will be borne by the General Budget and Rs.28,450 crore by the Railway Budget.
In percentage terms the overall increase in pay & allowances and pensions over the ‘Business As Usual’ scenario will be 23.55 percent. Within this, the increase in pay will be 16 percent, increase in allowances will be 63 percent, and increase in pension would be 24 percent.
The total impact of the Commission’s recommendations are expected to entail an increase of 0.65 percentage points in the ratio of expenditure on (Pay+Allowances+ Pension) to GDP compared to 0.77 percent in case of VI CPC.
New Pay Structure: Considering the issues raised regarding the Grade Pay structure and with a view to bring in greater transparency, the present system of pay bands and grade pay has been dispensed with and a new pay matrix has been designed. Grade Pay has been subsumed in the pay matrix. The status of the employee, hitherto determined by grade pay, will now be determined by the level in the pay matrix.
Fitment: A fitment factor of 2.57 is being proposed to be applied uniformly for all employees.
Annual Increment: The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3 percent.
Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP): Performance benchmarks for MACP have been made more stringent from “Good” to “Very Good”.
The Commission has 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.
No other changes in MACP recommended.
Military Service Pay (MSP): The Military Service Pay, which is a compensation for the various aspects of military service, will be admissible to the Defence forces personnel only. As before, Military Service Pay will be payable to all ranks up to and inclusive of Brigadiers and their equivalents. The current MSP per month and the revised rates recommended are as follows:
7th-CPC-Report-Highlights
Short Service Commissioned Officers: Short Service Commissioned Officers will be allowed to exit the Armed Forces at any point in time between 7 and 10 years of service, with a terminal gratuity equivalent of 10.5 months of reckonable emoluments. They will further be entitled to a fully funded one year Executive Programme or a M.Tech. programme at a premier Institute.
Lateral Entry/Settlement: The Commission is recommending a revised formulation for lateral entry/resettlement of defence forces personnel which keeps in view the specific requirements of organization to which such personnel will be absorbed. For lateral entry into CAPFs an attractive severance package has been recommended.
Headquarters/Field Parity: Parity between field and headquarters staff recommended for similar functionaries e.g Assistants and Stenos.
Cadre Review: Systemic change in the process of Cadre Review for Group A officers recommended.
Allowances: The Commission has recommended abolishing 52 allowances altogether. Another 36 allowances have been abolished as separate identities, but subsumed either in an existing allowance or in newly proposed allowances. Allowances relating to Risk and Hardship will be governed by the proposed Risk and Hardship Matrix.
Risk and Hardship Allowance: Allowances relating to Risk and Hardship will be governed by the newly proposed nine-cell Risk and Hardship Matrix, with one extra cell at the top, viz., RH-Max to include Siachen Allowance.
The current Siachen Allowance per month and the revised rates recommended are as follows:
7CPC-Report-Highlights
This would be the ceiling for risk/hardship allowances and there would be no individual RHA with an amount higher than this allowance.
House Rent Allowance: Since the Basic Pay has been revised upwards, the Commission recommends that HRA be paid at the rate of 24 percent, 16 percent and 8 percent of the new Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively. The Commission also recommends that the rate of HRA will be revised to 27 percent, 18 percent and 9 percent respectively when DA crosses 50 percent, and further revised to 30 percent, 20 percent and 10 percent when DA crosses 100 percent.
In the case of PBORs of Defence, CAPFs and Indian Coast Guard compensation for housing is presently limited to the authorised married establishment hence many users are being deprived. The HRA coverage has now been expanded to cover all.
Any allowance not mentioned in the report shall cease to exist.
Emphasis has been placed on simplifying the process of claiming allowances.
Advances: All non-interest bearing Advances have been abolished.
Regarding interest-bearing Advances, only Personal Computer Advance and House Building Advance (HBA) have been retained. HBA ceiling has been increased to Rs.25 lakhs from the present Rs.7.5 lakhs.
Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS): The Rates of contribution as also the insurance coverage under the CGEGIS have remained unchanged for long. They have now been enhanced suitably. The following rates of CGEGIS are recommended:
7th-CPC-Report
Medical Facilities: Introduction of a Health Insurance Scheme for Central Government employees and pensioners has been recommended.
Meanwhile, for the benefit of pensioners residing outside the CGHS areas, CGHS should empanel those hospitals which are already empanelled under CS (MA)/ECHS for catering to the medical requirement of these pensioners on a cashless basis.
All postal pensioners should be covered under CGHS. All postal dispensaries should be merged with CGHS.
Pension: The Commission recommends a revised pension formulation for civil employees including CAPF personnel as well as for Defence personnel, who have retired before 01.01.2016. This formulation will bring about parity between past pensioners and current retirees for the same length of service in the pay scale at the time of retirement.
The past pensioners shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by the Commission on the basis of Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the pay matrix.
This amount shall be raised to arrive at the notional pay of retirees, by adding number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service at the rate of 3 percent.
In the case of defence forces personnel this amount will include Military Service Pay as admissible.
Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the new pension.
An alternative calculation will be carried out, which will be a multiple of 2.57 times of the current basic pension.
The pensioner will get the higher of the two.
Gratuity: Enhancement in the ceiling of gratuity from the existing Rs.10 lakh to Rs.20 lakh. The ceiling on gratuity may be raised by 25 percent whenever DA rises by 50 percent.
Disability Pension for Armed Forces: The Commission is recommending reverting to a slab based system for disability element, instead of existing percentile based disability pension regime.
Ex-gratia Lump sum Compensation to Next of Kin: The Commission is recommending the revision of rates of lump sum compensation for next of kin (NOK) in case of death arising in various circumstances relating to performance of duties, to be applied uniformly for the defence forces personnel and civilians including CAPF personnel.
Martyr Status for CAPF Personnel: The Commission is of the view that in case of death in the line of duty, the force personnel of CAPFs should be accorded martyr status, at par with the defence forces personnel.
New Pension System: The Commission received many grievances relating to NPS. It has recommended a number of steps to improve the functioning of NPS. It has also recommended establishment of a strong grievance redressal mechanism.
Regulatory Bodies:  The Commission has recommended a consolidated pay package of Rs.4,50,000 and Rs.4,00,000 per month for Chairpersons and Members respectively of select Regulatory bodies. In case of retired government servants, their pension will not be deducted from their consolidated pay. The consolidated pay package will be raised by 25 percent as and when Dearness Allowance goes up by 50 percent. For Members of the remaining Regulatory bodies normal replacement pay has been recommended.
Performance Related Pay: The Commission has recommended introduction of the Performance Related Pay (PRP) for all categories of Central Government employees, based on quality Results Framework Documents, reformed Annual Performance Appraisal Reports and some other broad Guidelines. The Commission has also recommended that the PRP should subsume the existing Bonus schemes.
There are few recommendations of the Commission where there was no unanimity of view and these are as follows:
The Edge: An edge is presently accordeded to the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) at three promotion stages from Senior Time Scale (STS), to the Junior Administrative Grade (JAG) and the NFSG.  is recommended by the Chairman, to be extended to the Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS).
Shri Vivek Rae, Member is of the view that financial edge is justified only for the IAS and IFS. Dr. Rathin Roy, Member is of the view that the financial edge accorded to the IAS and IFS should be removed.
Empanelment: The Chairman and Dr. Rathin Roy, Member, recommend that All India Service officers and Central Services Group A officers who have completed 17 years of service should be eligible for empanelment under the Central Staffing Scheme and there should not be “two year edge”, vis-à-vis the IAS. Shri Vivek Rae, Member, has not agreed with this view and has recommended review of the Central Staffing Scheme guidelines.
Non Functional Upgradation for Organised Group ‘A’ Services: The Chairman is of the view that NFU availed by all the organised Group `A’ Services should be allowed to continue and be extended to all officers in the CAPFs, Indian Coast Guard and the Defence forces. NFU should henceforth be based on the respective residency periods in the preceding substantive grade. Shri Vivek Rae, Member and Dr. Rathin Roy, Member, have favoured abolition of NFU at SAG and HAG level.
Superannuation: Chairman and Dr. Rathin Roy, Member, recommend the age of superannuation for all CAPF personnel should be 60 years uniformly. Shri Vivek Rae, Member, has not agreed with this recommendation and has endorsed the stand of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Decrease in Take Home Salary from 6th to 7th Pay Commission – IRTSA

Decrease in Take Home Salary from 6th to 7th Pay Commission – IRTSA

7thCPC PAY HIKE – IS IT A HIKE OR A FARCE ?

THE CAUSE IS HIDDEN

THE EFFECT IS VISIBLE TO ALL

7th CPC has submitted its report to the Government and the additional expenditure projected by the PAY Commission is of 1.02 lakh rupees. As outsiders many of the country men started crying hoarse that the Govt. employees are taking away lions’ share of its income.

Out of the projected 1.02 lakh hike, just above 1/4th is going to be borne by Indian Railways within its own budget; centre has to bear 1/4th towards pension, 1/4th towards allowances and only 1/4th towards Pay. Govt. need to borne only Rs.27,750 crores towards increase in pay. Allowances need not be taken as higher expenditure since they are part of compensation towards inflation and expenditure incurred in discharge of official duties.

7th CPC itself observed that financial impact on account of increase in pay, allowances & pension will be 23.55%. Increase on account of Pay & DA (excluding other allowances) will be to the tune of 16%. At present, without implementing 7th CPC Report, Year on year increase in the expenditure in both pay and pension has averaged about 11% of the Central Expenditure. Thus real increase on account of increase in pay, all allowances & pension will be only 12.55% (23.55% – 11% = 12.55%). Real increase on account of Pay & DA will be only 5% (16% – 11% = 5%).

IS THERE A REAL INCREASE IN TAKE HOME PAY?

Real increase in minimum wage between 6th CPC & recommended 7th CPC scales will be Rs.2250. Employees’ contribution to National Pension scheme will increase from Rs.700 to Rs.1800 and for CGEGIS it will increase from present Rs.30 to Rs.1500. Therefore increase in real wage (take home pay) of Rs.2250 will be eaten away by Rs.900 increased contribution for NPS plus Rs.1500 for CGEGIS. Net take home pay will have a negative growth of Rs.320 (Rs.1100 + Rs.1470 – Rs.2250 = Rs. – 320) as illustrated in the table below:

nps-7thCPC-PAY HIKE

WILL THERE BE ANY ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURE DUE TO PAY HIKE RECOMMENDED BY 7TH CPC?

Government will take back into its treasury Rs. 6500 crores from increased monthly contribution towards CGEGIS and another Rs.2500 crores towards employees’ contribution for NPS from 11 lakh employees appointed after 1.1.2004. After reducing Rs.9000 crore from Rs.27,750 crore (projected increase in pay), net additional expense towards Pay will be around Rs.18,750 crores only. Even this additional expenditure is not true.

Total Expenditure on Pay & Allowance in FY 2012- 13 was Rs.1,29,599 crore. If it is indexed by 11% increase year on year, in the FY 2015-16 even without implementing 7th CPC recommendations increase on account of Pay & Allowances will be around Rs.19,500 crore. Therefore Government is not going to have any additional expenditure on account of Pay increase after the implementation of 7th CPC Report as per its recommendations.

For 2012-13, revenues foregone through various concessions to various sections are estimated at a total of Rs.5,73,627 crore which was 10 per cent higher than the total fiscal deficit of the Central Government, financial experts say, concessions must be given to have accelerated economic growth. Government employees are exposed to negative growth in their real wage – but who cares?

Unjustified deduction for Group insurance Scheme in 7th Pay Commission Report – IRTSA

Unjustified deduction for Group insurance Scheme in 7th Pay Commission Report – IRTSA

CGEGIS – Central Government Employees Group insurance Scheme

a. Term insurance premiums have plummeted over last 6 years. Since 2009, term insurance premium have crashed by 75 percent. A one crore cover for 30 year old male cost around Rs.30,000 in 2008, but one would be able to get the same cover today for around Rs.8000. But 7th CPC has made its

recommendations exactly opposite to the trend in the market, instead of passing on the benefit to employees, 7th CPC recommended for taking away even meager benefit extended in the form of contribution to CGEGIS.

b. Huge unjustified increase in monthly deduction for GIS: 7th CPC has recommended for increasing monthly deduction & insurance amount by 41.7 times for Group ‘A’ & ‘B’ and 50 times for Group ‘C’ as given in table below,

c. 7th CPC recommended a ratio of savings fund to insurance fund as 75:25.

d. Therefore, for the annual contribution of Rs.18,000 by a Group ‘C’ employee Rs.13,500 will go for savings fund and Rs. 4,500 will go for insurance fund.

e. On cessation of account (ie on retirement) savings amount plus 8.7% interest per annum (compounded quarterly) for savings account has to be paid to the employee.

f. In case of demise of the employee savings amount plus Interest as applicable on date plus insurance amount has to be paid.

g. So for risk coverage to the value of Rs.15,00,000 a Group ‘C’ employee need to contribute Rs.4,500 annually.

h. Whereas in LIC’s New Amulya Jeevan-II insurance policy, which covers only risk (100% goes to insurance fund), if a person joins at the age of 20 for the period of 30 years, for risk insurance amount of Rs.25,00,000annual contribution is only Rs.3,652 per year. In LIC’s New Amulya JeevanII policy annual contribution is less by Rs.848 and insurance amount is more by Rs.10,00,000 than CGEGIS recommended by 7th CPC.

i. Unreasonable recommendation by 7th CPC: For 0.81 times of contribution recommended by 7th CPC, LIC of India a PSU is offering an insurance amount of 1.67 times recommended by 7th CPC.

j. When around 30,00,000 employees are going to be in the Group insurance scheme, annual deduction has to be much less than LIC’s policy which is offered for individuals.

k. Monthly deduction given in the table below for recommended insurance amount by 7th CPC is sufficient as per the rates applicable in New Amulya Jeevan-II insurance policy.

Demand of staff side to increase the subscription and the insurance coverage – NC JCM

Demand of staff side to increase the subscription and the insurance coverage – NC JCM

“The Staff Side recalled the assurance held out by the Commission earlier to have the actuarial assessed by an expert agency to accede to the demand of the staff side to increase the subscription and the insurance coverage. The Staff Side was of the opinion that their suggestion to share the subscription in the ratio of 3:7 was reasonable but in the absence of an expert study, the Government might not accept the same. The commission said that they would explore the possibility of such an assessment by the LIC before finalization of the report.”

No.NC/JCM/2015

Dated: June 15, 2015

All Constituent Organisations of National Council(JCM)

Dear Comrades,

As indicated in our last circular letter, the final meeting with the 7th CPC was hled on 9.6.2015. Earlier on 8th afternoon, the Staff side had met separately to chalk out the course of negotiations. The National JCA also met on the same day. The National Anomaly Committee met on 9th June, 2015 at 3.00 pm under the Chairmanship of Joint Secretary (E) Department of Personnel at Room No. 72 North Block, New Delhi. We give hereunder a brief synopsis of the discussions at all the meetings.

1. Meeting with 7thCPC

The following Staff Side members were present at the Meeting:- Com. M. Raghavaiah(Leader Staff Side – NFIR), Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra(Secretary, Staff Side-AIRF), Com. Guman Singh, Com. R.P. Bhatnagar and Com. B.C. Sharma(all from NFIR), Com. Rakhal Dasgupta, Com. J.R. Bhosale (AIRF), Com. KKN Kutty, Com. M.S. Raja and Com. M. Krishnan (from Confederation and NFPE), Com. Srikumar and Com. R.N. Pathak(from AIDEF) Com. Srinivasan and Com. Surjeet Singh( From INDWF).

(a) Date of Effect – The Chairman has made it clear that the Commission would recommend 1.1.2016 as the date of effect of their recommendations. The Commission would finalise its report by end of August and would submit the same to the Government thereafter. They would adopt Dr. Aykroyd formula for the computation of the Minmum wage. To the specific query made by the Staff Side, the Commission said that they would factor the probable increase In the rate of retail prices of the commodities and would arrive at the minimum wage as on 1.1.2016. There had been no reply to the loss of wages to the employees due to the erosion of the real value of wages as there was no interim relief or benefit accrued from the merger of DA. These demands, therefore, stand rejected.

(b) Increase in the insurance coverage in cases of death in harness – The Staff Side recalled the assurance held out by the Commission earlier to have the actuarial assessed by an expert agency to accede to the demand of the staff side to increase the subscription and the insurance coverage. The Staff Side was of the opinion that their suggestion to share the subscription in the ratio of 3:7 was reasonable but in the absence of an expert study, the Government might not accept the same. The commission said that they would explore the possibility of such an assessment by the LIC before finalization of the report.

(c) Fitment Formula – The Commission might accept the suggestion made by the Staff Side in respect of fitment formula with requisite change in the ratio on the basis of the quantum of minimum wage determined.

(d) In the matters of rate of increment, quantum of allowances etc. – The Commission did not come out clearly of their thinking in the matter.

(e) Parity in Pension entitlement of the past and present pensioners – The Commission is yet to make up its mind on the suggestion made by the staff side in the matter. They however said that almost all the Pensioners organizations which met the Commission had pleaded for this and the same is linked with the one rank one pension demand of the Armed forces personnel.

(f) MACP Scheme – The difficulties and anomalies pointed out by the Staff Side and various other organizations have been taken note of by the Commission. The Commission assured to evolve a methodology to resolve the problem.

(g) Opposition to the induction of casual/daily rated workers and contractorisation – The Commission said that they were opposed to the unfair practice of exploitation of labour. For jobs which are of perennial and permanent character, regular workers must be recruited, the Commission added and that would obviate the need for outsourcing and contractorisation. Since most of the outsourced jobs do not require any academic qualification, the Commission was of the opinion that the revival of Group D cadre would help to address the issue. However, the Commission stated that if only the staff side sends in a communication in writing, the Commission would be able to make any recommendation in the matter. The Staff Side reiterated that they are totally opposed to outsourcing, induction of casual workers and contractorisation and the same has been made explicit in their memorandum.

(h) Parity in the pay scales between the personnel in the Central Sectt and those in the subordinate establishments – The Commission stated that they have appreciated the stand taken by the Staff Side in the matter. The Commission was non committal on other issues raised by the Staff Side members.

2. National Anomaly Committee meeting

The meeting was held at Room No. 72 North Block, under the Chairmanship of J.S(E) Department of Personnel and Training. In the initial remarks, the Staff side raised the following issues.

(a) Though the official side had promised to provide an action taken statement on all issues in the National Council, the same has not been supplied;

(b) No date for the National Council is indicated.

(c) No indication of the steps taken to convene the Departmental Councils. The official side had assured of the convening of the Departmental Council of the Ministry of Finance in the last meeting. However, the staff side has not been apprised of any date so far.

(d) Abnormal delay in replying to the references made to the Ministry of Finance, Department of Personnel from the Railways and other Ministries.

(e) The necessity to increase the ceiling limit of the rebate in Incometax for the allowances given to the Loco Pilots.

(f) Non-adherence to the GOI instructions by the Defence Ministry in certain matters.

The Official Side stated that the Action taken Statement was almost ready but for certain comments from Certain departments. The same would be sent to the staff Side and another meeting held to discuss the course of action required on items where no agreement could be reached. The JS (per) stated that some of the references received from the Railways had been sent back to them for clarification before a final decision is taken. Regarding increase in the rebate ceiling under the Income tax Act, the matter would be referred to the revenue department and requested the staff side to appreciate that the same has to be considered in a wider perspective. Thereafter the agenda items, which had not been discussed even once were taken up.

(i) Anomaly in the Pay Band and Grade Pay assigned to the Group B Officers of the Audit, Income Tax, Accounts, Central Excise and Customs and Postal Departments. (Agenda Item No. 1 and 8 taken together.) Despite agreeing that there existed an anomaly in the matter, the official side expressed their inability to proceed further in the matter as the Group B Officers were beyond the ambit of the JCM scheme. However, they agreed that the Govt. would submit take up the issue specifically with the 7th CPC. Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra said that the Govt. must consider a JCM set up for the promote officers as their cases are not heard or discussed at any other forum. Com. Kutty said that the items were introduced as early as in 2009 and it was not correct on the part of the official side to state that the same would be referred to the 7th CPC. Normally the Pay Commission would not entertain to consider the anomalies of the earlier Commissions. However, after some discussions, it was concluded that the Govt. must take up the issue with the 7th CPC, in spite of the fact that the Commission has almost reached its concluding stage.

(ii) Anomaly in the pay and Grade Pay of Data Processing Assistants Grade A.. The official side did not agree with the contention that the assigning of higher grade pay to certain categories of officers (7450-11500 and Grade Pay4600) was arbitrary. The Government, they added, had acted upon the recommendation of the 6th CPC. They also said that only in those cases where the pre-revised pay scales were in 6500-10500 such up-gradation had been made. In the case of DPA Grade A, they were in the pre revised scale of pay of Rs. 5500-9000.

(iii) Item No.3. Grant of Grade pay of Rs. 4200 to Lab Technicians. The official side said that the orders have been issued in the matter.

(iv) Item No.4. Up-gradation of Pay Band and Grade pay of LDCs and UDCs.

The Staff Side made the following points in support of the item:-

(a) The Grade pay of Rs. 1900 assigned to LDCs by the 6th CPC was without any logic and without appreciating the existing vertical relativity between Group D and LDCs and LDCs and UDCs.

(b) While creating the non functional grade in the grade pay of Rs. 4200 in the Central Secretariat, the Department of Personnel, which is the nodal department for all matters concerning the common categories, did not extend the benefit to the UDCs in the Subordinate offices.

(c) The Staff side also pointed out the Department while restructuring the cadre of stenographers in the Central Sectt. earlier, had extended the benefit to all Stenographers in the subordinate offices.

The official side stated that it was not possible for them to address the issue, whatever may be its justification in the background of the setting up of the 7th CPC. They however, assured to make a reference specifically to the Commission.

(v) Item No.5. Senior Clerks in DMS to be assigned grade pay of Rs. 4200. The matter was stated to be sub-judice. Staff Side, however, stated that, with the change in Recruitment Rules, they should brought at par with the Railways.

(vi) Item No. 6 and 12. The two agenda items being identical were take up together. The Staff side pointed out the glaring discrimination in the matter. They also stated that the number of employees involved is very small. On behalf of the Postal Department it was stated that the recruitment qualification in the

Postal Department was VIII Standard and ITI whereas in other establishment, the academic qualification stipulated was X Standard. The Staff side contested the same pointing out that no person is entitled to be admitted to ITI without having X standard qualification. They pointed out that the merger of Artisan Grade I and Charge hand was the root cause of the problem. The official side took the stand that in any case the anomaly cannot be removed at this stage and have to wait till the 7th CPC recommendations are made.

(vii) Item No. 7. Parity in pay scales between the Central Sectt. and subordinate offices. The official side said that the up-gradation of the pay scale of Central Sectt. Assistants were on well found grounds. The Government had considered the repercussion of the said decision and therefore, the decision is not possible to be either reversed or extended to any other category of employees. They added that perhaps the 7th CPC before whom the matter is already agitated by the employees organizations of the subordinate offices might take a decision in the matter.

(viii) Item No. 9 and 10. Higher grade pay for Medical Assistants and Store keepers. The Defence Ministry was asked to submit a detailed note to the Ministry of Finance indicating the duties and responsibilities assigned as also the recruitment qualifications stipulated in the RR to enable them to reconsider the issue.

(ix) Children Educational Allowance for any two children. The official side stated that the deviation made in identifying the eldest two children was consciously done taking into account the National Population policy and various other factors and is not likely to be changed. Regarding the claim for reimbursement of expenses incurred in the nursery class, as such institutions or classes are not linked to any Educational Boards, the official side said that they would look into the matter with a view to find a solution thereof.

Comradely yours,
