Increment, Bunching of Pay, Dearness Allowance in Revised Pay Structure – Annexure-III

Annexure-III (A)
(Para 6)

Stagnation Increment: In case of reaching the end point of pay scale, an executive would be allowed to draw stagnation increment, one after every two years upto a maximum of three such increments provided the executives gets a performance rating of ‘Good’ or above.

Bunching of Pay: In CPSEs where a lower fitment benefit (i.e. 10% or 5%) is granted due to affordability, there is a possibility of bunching at different grades due to revised Basic Pay falling short of reaching starting point of revised pay-scale. The revised BP due to bunching of pay in these cases would be the higher of the followings :

  • Adding the difference between the ‘pre-revised Basic Pay’ and ‘the minimum of the pre-revised pay scale’ to the starting point of revised pay scale.
  • The revised BP as arrived after applying the fitment benefit (ie 10% or 5% of BP plus DA).

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Guidelines for fixation of pay of candidates working in Public Sector Undertakings etc., recommended for appointment by the Commission by method of recruitment by selection – regarding.

Reference is invited to this Department’s O.M.s No.12/1/88-Estt(Pay-I) dated 07.08.1989, OM No.12/1/96-Estt(Pay-I) dated 10.07.1998 and OM No.12/3/2009-Pay-I dated 30.03.2010 whereby guidelines for fixation of pay of candidates working in Public Sector Undertakings etc., on their appointment as direct recruits on selection through a properly constituted authority including departmental authorities, were issued.

Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – Clarification regarding Fixation of ceiling of pay for entitlement

Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – Clarification regarding Fixation of ceiling of pay for entitlement

Government of India
Ministry of Defence
(Department of Defence)
D(Civ.II)

Subject: Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – Clarification regarding Fixation of ceiling of pay for entitlement.

Ref. : CGDA UO No. AT/11/2366/NDANol-X dated 22.01.2016 and last reminder dated 13.12.2016

In compliance of Hon. CAT, Jodhpur Bench Order dated 5 Nov 2009, MoD issued letter dated 8th May 2015 to provide that the payment of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) shall be made on the basis of the current pay of the employees who are deployed for performing the duty during the night hours. Accordingly, Principal Controller of Accounts (PCA)(Fys), Kolkata issued letter dated 29.05.2015 to define the new formula for computation of NDA. This formula provides that the amount of NDA shall be computed by taking employee’s current Band Pay & Grade Pay plus DA divided by 195 (i.e. total working hours in a month). In this manner, the Hon’ble CAT order, as upheld by Hon’ble High Court/Supreme Court stands implemented in letter & spirit.

2. Subsequently, PCA (Fys) Kolkata issued letter dated,9 Sep 2015 to prescribe the pay ceiling corresponding to Rs. 2200 per month (specified in terms of DoPT OM dated 4 Oct 1989) to determine entitlement of staff for night duty. However, the corresponding pay so prescribed was not accepted by the OFB Administration.

As per OFB’s calculations, the current pay corresponding to Rs.2200 is not only different, but there is wide disparity in both the figures. OFB has stated that they cannot accept this unilateral decision of PCA(Fys) because the calculations are incorrect. Besides, this has led to industrial unrest at all Ordnance Factories.

The staff side members have expressed displeasure and have threatened to stop Night duty at all Ordnance Factories. OFB Admn apprehends serious loss of production and have requested MoD to examine the issue and intimate corresponding pay of Rs.2200 so that the employees could be detailed accordingly for performing duty at night hours. Likewise, CGDA has also sought clarification from MoD on the same issue.

3. The matter was examined in MoD in consultation with MoD(Fin) and DoPT. DoPT stated that the calculations made by both PCA (Fys) and OFB are incorrect and prescribed a different formula to compute the current pay corresponding to Rs.2200 per month that existed during 1989. Both PCA(Fys) and OFB have rejected this formula for being cumbersome and unworkable.

This office also supports their views because using this formula entails tedious calculations of pay of each employee ever since their date of joining service, running into decades. In a nutshell, attempts to find out the current pay equivalent to Rs.2200 pm have not been fruitful in spite of consultations with DoPT and MoD(Fin), and the stalemate on the issue continues across all the defence establishments, leading to confusion and possible loss of productivity.

4. On further consideration, it has been observed that the DOPT OM No. 12012/4/86-Estt.(Allowances) dt. 04.10.1989 on the subject of NDA lays down following condition to determine the entitlement for NDA:

 (Clause a) – The ceiling of pay for entitlement of NDA shall be Rs. 2200/- p.m.

(Clause b)- There will however be no ceiling for entitlement of NDA in respect of officials who are, at present, getting this benefit as per existing criteria.

5.Clause (a)

The pay ceiling of Rs. 2200 per month mentioned in the DoPT in their OM dated 4 Oct 1989, was prescribed more than 25 years ago. During the intervening period, two Pay Commissions have come into force which have altered the pay structure of the employees drastically. In spite of an altogether different landscape of the pay structure, the DoPT did not come up with any revised order to amend the provisions of their OM dated 4 Oct 1989 relevant to the current pay structure. In the absence of clear guidelines, the management of Defence Establishments resorted to adhoc measures to keep their organisations running during the night hours in the intervening period. Proposals sent by MoD to DoP&T at various stages in the light of various judicial pronouncements, were rejected, sometimes on the grounds that the DoPT orders are not applicable to industrial employees.

In the current phase, the efforts being made by the defence authorities to adhere to the prescribed pay limit have proved to be frustrating because of the practical difficulties being faced by both Accounting Authorities and the Defence Estts who, due to tedious and lengthy calculations, have not been able to reach a consensus to determine the level of staff who can be deployed for performing the night duty. In the current scenario, where  the pay ceiling of Rs.2200 prn. is obsolete and meaningless, and the DoPT have  avoided prescribing a realistic ceiling that would be relevant to the current pay  structure of the Government employees, it is left upon MoD to find a solution. Even though MoD proposes to take up the matter with DoPT again for prescribing a pay ceiling based on the current pay structure, it is however felt that the decision thereon shall have reflection over the future cases only and is not likely to resolve the current cases.

6. Clause (b)

The provision in the DoPT OM dated 4 Oct 1989 (highlighted above in para 4) permits entitlement of NDA without any ceiling in respect of officials “who were getting this benefit (at that time) as per existing criteria”. In view of the fact that the pay ceiling prescribed in clause (a) is of no relevance today, it has become necessary to resolve the imbroglio by resorting to the second provision given in this OM – named as clause (b). It has been decided that till such time the new pay parameters based on the current pay structure to determine the entitlement for NDA are prescribed by the nodal Ministry, OFB/Field Offices/Defence Establishments are allowed to determine the entitlement of their employees for the purpose of NDA in terms of this clause in the DoPT OM dated 04.10.1989 that provides that there shall  be no ceiling for entitlement of NDA in respect of such officials who were getting this  benefit at that point of time as per extant criteria. So as to give a formal and concrete shape to this, the OFB and other Defence Establishments are being advised to issue a one-time office order, specifying in definite terms, the designations/ categories/levels of non-gazetted employees (Industrial and Non Industrial) who were getting this benefit of NDA in accordance with extant instructions i.e. DoPT OM dated 4 Oct 1989, so as to ensure their seamless deployment at night shifts and payment of NDA based on current pay.

7. CGDA is, therefore, requested to issue necessary directions to their lower formations to deal with the cases of payment of NDA accordingly.

8. This issues with the approval of Additional Secretary.

Shri. JVSR.Krishna raised an important issue in our comments forum. Considering the merits of this issue, we posted here to draw the attention of authorities concerned to take necessary action to address the grievances of similarly placed retiring government servants.

Dearness Allowance & Dearness Relief:

As per the prevailing conditions, Govt of India sanctioning DA once in 6 months i.e. 1st Jan. & 1st July. Based on consumer price index, due to raise in the inflation for the period of once in 6 months i.e. 1st Jan. to 30th June & 1st July to 31st December respectively DA being sanctioned to those Central Govt. employees and as DR to the Central Govt. Pensioners. This DA/DR is cumulatively added every month, for administrative convenience, it was being sanctioned once in 6 months. For those Central Govt. employees who were having DOB 1st of any month are being forcibly superannuated on the last working day of the preceding month. Particularly, those who were having DOB 1st Jan. & 1st July, though they have completed 6 months, sanctioned DA was not considered for calculating Retirement benefits viz. Gratuity & Leave encashment purpose.

Retired Government servants is entitled for revised rate of D.A

whether a retired Government servant is entitled for revised rate of D.A., which comes into force after such Government servant retires from service on attaining the age of superannuation.

As per the Honble. CAT judgement, DA was allowed for calculation of retirement benefits; to those retired on 30th June (DA was sanctioned next to their retirement date. The said case was appealed in Honble. High Court of A.P. the WP was dismissed, further, Govt. of India appealed as SLP in Honble. Supreme Court of India, there also it was dismissed.

Orders were issued for implementation of DA to the Central Govt. Servants, who were working in Accountant General Office, Hyderabad. The same was implemented.

Since, it is a common issue, individuals who were worked in various Departments of Central Govt. should not insisted that who ever will proceed litigation, it will be implemented. It shall be implemented across the board to all the employees to save the money & man power of Govt. of India to avoid litigations.

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances dropped from today’s cabinet meeting agenda

7th Pay Commission: Higher allowances dropped from today’s cabinet meeting agenda

7th Pay Commission Higher allowances

New Delhi: The Union government has dropped higher allowances proposal under the 7th Pay Commission from its today’s cabinet meeting agenda at the last minute, the Finance Ministry officials involved with the process of higher allowances told The Sen Times on condition of anonymity.

The officials said recommendation of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha on higher allowances, was due to come before the Union cabinet at its meeting today for formal approval.

However, the item was dropped from the agenda at the last minute, as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is on an official visit to South Korea, they added.

However, they said that the Cabinet may decide on 7th pay commission allowances this month.

In June 2016, the Cabinet approved 14% pay and pension hike for central government employees and pensioners under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations with effect from January 1, 2016.

The decision on higher allowances was postponed by the Cabinet on that time because the 7th Pay Commission wanted abolition of 52 allowances and subsuming of another 36 allowances into larger existing ones out of total 196 allowances.

Employee unions were opposed it, which government complied with formation of the Committee on Allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa in June 2016 to review the allowances.

The Committee on Allowances submitted its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on April 27.

The report was then taken up by the Department of Expenditure for examination, following which it was passed on to the Empowered Committee of Secretaries set up to screen the 7th Pay Commission recommendations and to firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries was in the process of preparing the Cabinet note on higher allowances, which was completed on June 1.

The central government employees are now getting no new allowances (except Dearness Allowance) with their new pay structure till the cabinet nod.

Retired Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers demand payment of pending DA

Retired Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers demand payment of pending DA

An association of retired Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers has written to the Centre over the delay in payment of dearness allowance (DA) to them.

The Retired Teachers Welfare Society, which shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said the DA dues are pending since July 2016.

“We wrote to the prime minister in March and again in April drawing his attention to the issue of non-payment of 7 per cent DA to retired teachers of KVS. The PMO forwarded the letter to the Ministry of Human Resources Development in mid- April, but no action has been taken yet,” the society’s general secretary, C M Dubey, said today.

The letter was sent by the Bhopal chapter of the society.

On recommendations of the Union Cabinet, 7% DA was payable from July 2016 and subsequently 4% from January 2017 to the regular as well as retired employees of the Central government, including KVS teachers, Dubey said.

“The DA is being paid to regular employees, but not to retired ones. This is causing hardship to a large number of retired personnel,” he said.

Dearness Allowance for Workmen and Officer Employees in banks for the months of May, June and July 2017 under X BPS/ Joint Note dated 25.5.2015

The confirmed All India Average Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers (Base1960=100) for the quarter ended March 2017 are as follows:

Allowances Committee Report and Financial Expenditure

Allowances Committee Report and Financial Expenditure

Comrades,

The Central Government Civilian Employees numbering around 36 lakhs employees and Defence forces numbering around 15 lakhs are waiting for a long period for the allowances committee to submit its report and almost 10 months have passed , the allowances committee has not submitted its report so far , the patience of the Central Government Employees is almost over , the main demand of the CG employees is house rent allowance , the expenditure towards the HRA is just at 4.15 % of the total expenditure , the breakup of pay and allowances is pay including DA constitute about 80% and all allowances together constitute around 20% of the total expenditure, even if the 7th CPC recommendations are accepted the HRA expenditure shall be at just 9% of the total expenditure, even if the staff side demands of the HRA is accepted the total expenditure shall not cross 10%, let us examine the following facts.

The total expenditure towards pay & allowances for 36 lakhs Central Government employees for the year 2015-16 is Rs 1,50,028.57 ( in crore) , Out of the total expenditure of 1,50,028.57 crore, the percentage expenditure on Pay, Dearness Allowance (DA), House Rent Allowance (HRA) and other allowances are Pay Rs 55,162.69 crores (36.77%) , DA Rs 64,304.33 crores (42.68%) , allowances constitute Rs 30561.55 crores of which HRA Rs 6,225.14 crores ( 4.15% ) and. Transport Allowance constitute Rs 6186.05 crores and other allowances 16.22% respectively.

Out of the total expenditure of Rs 6,225.14 crore on HRA in 2015-16, the HRA expenditure for X class cities is Rs 2287.80 crore which is around 36.75% of the total expenditure on HRA.

Number of Sanctioned Posts is 36,49,468 and Number in Position is 32,28, 921 vacant posts is 4,20,547 , the Defence forces constitute around 15 lakhs with an Indian Army strength of 11 lakh.

Pay commission views : Para number 16.3

16.3 The increases in allowances relate to the following:

a) House Rent Allowance (HRA): This accounts for the principal increase in the expenditure on allowances since it is calculated as a percentage of the basic pay and the rise in basic pay based on recommendations of the Commission would be reflected as increased HRA. The expenditure on account of HRA is likely to go up from Rs.12,400 crore to Rs.29,600 crore, an increase of Rs.17,200 (138.71%). This figure also includes an expenditure of Rs.3,700 crore that is likely to occur on account of the expansion in coverage of HRA benefiting personnel serving in the CAPFs (this figures include all Central Government employees including Defence employees)

Hence the additional expenditure towards allowances will not financially impact the Central Government as already 70% of the 7th CPC expenditure has been borne out by the Government, only additional expenditure of just around 30% that is Rs 30,000 crores has to be met by the Central Government. even if 7th CPC report is fully implemented the expenditure towards pay and allowances shall not exceed 10% of the total revenue We hope the Government understands the sentiments of the Central Government employees and announce the revised allowances immediately after the arrival of the Honorable Finance Minister from his official tour to US and Russia, which he is expected to return from foreign assignments on 27th April 2017.

Comradely yours

(P.S.Prasad)
