F.No.11/2/2016-JCA-I(Pt.)

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

 

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

To

Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra

Secretary, Staff-Side National Council,

JCM 13-C, Ferozshah Road,

New Delhi-110001

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

Sir,

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

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

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

7th CPC Promotion : Fixation of Pay on Promotion from the Date of Next Increment Option – Dopt Orders with Illustration

Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016-regarding.

No.13/02/2017-Estt.(Pay-I)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi Dated 27th July, 2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016-regarding.

Prior to implementation of 6th CPC Report, the pay fixation on promotion was governed by provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1). In 6th CPC context, the first part of FR 22(I)(a)(1) was replaced by Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. Similarly, consequent upon implementation of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 in 7th CPC context, the pay fixation on promotion is regulated by the provisions of Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. This rule regulates pay fixation on promotion if the same is opted by the employee from the date of promotion itself. The issue of relevancy of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) as well as the methodology of fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance, of a Government Servant in case he opts for pay fixation from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) has been considered in this Department.

2. In this context, proviso under FR 22(I)(a)(1) inter-alia provides that the Government Servant (other than those appointed on deputation basis to ex-cadre post or on ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) shall have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion or to have the pay fixed from the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of the pay in lower grade.

3. After due consideration in this matter, the President is pleased to decide as follows:

(i) FR 22(I)(a)(1) holds good with regard to availability of option clause for pay fixation, to a Government Servant holding a post, other than a tenure post, in a substantive or temporary or officiating capacity, who is promoted or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity, as the case may be, subject to the fulfilment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant Recruitment Rules,to another post carrying duties or responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him/her. Such Government Servant may opt to have his/her pay fixed from the Date of his/her Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) accruing in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, except in cases of appointment on deputation basis to an ex-cadre post or on direct recruitment basis or appointment/promotion on ad-hoc basis.

(ii) In case, consequent upon his/her promotion, the Government Servant opts to his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) in the Level of the post from which Government Servant is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his/her DNI, the Government Servant shall be placed at the next higher cell in the level of the post to which he/she is promoted.

promotion-chart

(iii) Subsequently, on DNI in the level of the post to which Government Servant is promoted, his//her Pay will be re-fixed and two increments (one accrued on accoun tof annual increment and the second accrued on account of promotion) may be granted in the Level from which the Government Servant is promoted and he/she shall be placed, at a Cell equal to the figure so arrived, in the Level of the post to which he/she is promoted; and if no such Cell is available in the Level to which he/she is promoted, he/she shall be placed at the next higher Cell in that Level.promotion-chart

(iv) In such cases where Government Servant opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, the next increment as well as Date of Next Increment (DNI) will be regulated accordingly.

4. It is further reiterated that in order to enable the officials to exercise the option within the time limit prescribed, the option clause for pay fixation on promotion with effect from date of promotion/DNI shall invariably be incorporated in the promotion/appointment order so that there are no cases of delay in exercising the options due to administrative lapse.

5. In so far as their application to the employees belonging to the Indian Audit and Accounts Department is concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller &Auditor General of India.

Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers

Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers

F.No.7/1/2017-CS-I(A)(Pt.)
Government of India

2nd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan
Khan Market, New Delhi – 3
Dated 27.02.17

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers – Reg.

DoP&T has been receiving many references from various Ministries/ Departments seeking clarification on the issue of grant of bunching to Assistant Section Officers of Central Secretariat Service in terms of Department of Expenditure’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

2. It has also been noticed that there have been divergent views on the matter that while some Ministries/ Departments have given the benefit on their own, some other Ministries/ Departments have sought clarifications on various issues they are facing while giving the benefit of bunching in terms of DoE’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

3. The matter has been taken up for further clarifications with Establishment Division/ Department of Expenditure briefly on the following issues:

i. While the Seventh Pay Commission had not prescribed different modes of pay fixation for Direct Recruit (DR) and Promotee ASOs, there have been two different modes of pay fixation for DR and Promotees prior to implementation of Seventh pay Commission. Due to differential methods of pay fixation, required differential of 3% is not calculable based on seniority alone as the other relevant facts of being DR/Promotee comes into play here.

ii. The manner of different pay fixation for DR ASO and promotee Assistants has been challenged in various court cases (viz. OA No.2147/2015, OA No. 150/2016, OA No.1015/2013 and OA No.476/2015 etc.)

4. It has already been decided to consult Department of Expenditure through Establishment (PEW) in the matter and same is under examination. Therefore, to ensure uniform implementation of Department of Expenditure’s instruction, all the Ministries/ Departments are advised to wait for further instructions with regard to grant of bunching benefits to ASOs of CSS and also if orders have already been issued by any Ministry/ Department, the same may not be given effect till further instructions.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

Amendments to All India Service (Discipline & Appeals) Rules, 1969- Guidelines regarding adherence to timelines for Departmental Proceedings

Immediate

File No.106/7/2015-AVD.I(Part)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)

New Delhi, Dated 15th March, 2017

To

1. The Chief Secretaries of All the State Governments / Union Territories
2. All the Cadre Controlling Authorities (as per standard list).

Subject: Amendments to All India Service (Discipline & Appeals) Rules, 1969- Guidelines regarding adherence to timelines for Departmental Proceedings.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Reference is invited to this Department’s Notification dated 20.01.2017 vide which amendments were made to the All India Service (Discipline & Appeal) Rules, 1969 by providing specific time frames for different stages of the inquiry process.

2. The salient features of the amendments are:

i. Introduction of time frame in Rule 8(5) providing the Charged Officer (CO) a period of 30 days for submission of his representation on the chargesheet served on him. The period may be extended by another 30 days by the Disciplinary Authority (DA) for reasons to be recorded in writing. Under no circumstances, the extension shall exceed 90 days from the date of receipt of the Articles of Charge.

ii. Insertion of new Sub-rule 8(25) (a), (b) & (c) whereby the Inquiring Authority should conclude the inquiry and submit his report within six months from the date of appointment. Any further extension of time would be permissible, six months at a time with the approval of the DA or any authority authorised by the DA on his behalf for reasons to be recorded in writing by Inquiring Authority.

iii. Introduction of time frame of 15 days for submission of the representation by the charged officer on the advice of UPSC regarding quantum of penalty proposed. This period can be extended by 15 days by the DA for reasons to be recorded in writing. Under no circumstances, the extension shall exceed 45 days from the date of receipt of the Articles of Charge.

3. In view of the introduction of time frames as elaborated in paragraph 2, all the State Governments / Union Territories and Cadre Controlling Authorities are advised to adopt the following measures so that the time frames can be strictly adhered to and the inquiry process can be completed expeditiously.

i. All listed documents on the basis of which the proposed disciplinary proceeding is to be initiated must be in the custody of the DA.

ii. In case disciplinary proceedings are initiated simultaneously with criminal proceedings on the same set of charges, a copy of all the documents and files should be kept in the custody of the DA prior to handing over the records, in case the said records are to be submitted in a court of law. In this regard, CVC OM No. 3(v)/99/7 dated 6 th September, 1999 may be referred to.

iii. Care may be taken to ensure that all listed documents are provided to the charged officer along with the chargesheet to enable him to submit his representation within the stipulated time.

iv. The date of serving notice on the CO seeking his representation should be duly noted and acknowledgement of the same should be retained in records as well as communicated to the Central Government in case departmental proceedings are initiated by the Central Government as well as in the departmental proceedings forwarded to the Central Government for imposition of major penalties under rule 6.

v. The chargesheet / advice of UPSC served on the CO may clearly indicate that in the absence
of a Statement of Defence or comments on the advice from the CO within the stipulated time frame as mentioned in Rule 8(5) and Rule 9(5) or a request from CO for extension of time, it would be assumed that the CO has no views to offer.

vi. During the course of inquiry, where the CO seeks additional documents, the JO may decide on the relevance of the documents so sought expeditiously. The JO may be advised to procure the permitted additional documents from the custodian Department I Ministry and supply copies of documents to CO within one month. In case of delays at the level of the Department / Ministry, the same may be brought to the notice of the DA by the JO to resolve the issue

expeditiously and DA should issue a non-availability certificate with regard to the documents which are not available.

vii. The time taken during the inquiry process may be regularly monitored and a register of all pending inquiries may be maintained. The JO should be advised to complete the inquiry within six months. However, if he is unable to do so for any good and sufficient reasons, he should make a request for extension in terms of new sub-rule 8 (25) to the DA well within the stipulated time frame. Every such extension must be approved by the DA before expiry of the six months time period.

viii. As per Rule 7 of the AIS (D&A) Rules, 1969, the Competent Authority is the State Government itself to institute proceedings if the act of omission was while the CO was serving in connection with the affairs of a State Government. Hence, the DA for granting extension for submitting the representation by the CO on the chargesheet [Rule 5 (b)] as well as extension of the inquiry for a further period of six months at a time [Rule 8 (25) (a)] is the State Government in all such cases.

ix. As per Rule 8 (22) (a) where a State Government on completion of the inquiry is of the opinion that a major penalty under Rule 6 is to be imposed on the member of service, the records are forwarded to the Central Government for imposition of the major penalties under Rule 6. In such cases, the Competent Authority for granting extension to the CO for submitting his representation on the advice of UPSC will be the Central Government.

x. The DA may authorise any authority subordinate to him to grant extension of time period as elaborated in paragraph 2 above on his behalf.

xi. The CCA / State Governments should appoint a Nodal Officer of the rank of Under Secretary, Government of India / UTs with contact details (mobile / e-mail / fax) for effective coordination between the Central and the State Governments.

Yours faithfully,
(Kavitha P manabhan)

4. It has already been decided to consult Department of Expenditure through Establishment (Pay) in the matter and same is under examination. Therefore, to ensure uniform implementation of Department of Expenditure’s instruction, all the Ministries/ Departments are advised to wait for further instructions with regard to grant of bunching benefits to ASOs of CSS and also if orders have already been issued by any Ministry/Department, the same may not be given effect till further instructions.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.
