Dated the 12th November, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 26th November, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Movement for Old Pension Scheme (NMOPS) has decided to observe ‘Gherao of Parliament House’ on 26th November, 2018 in order to demand withdrawal of New Pension Scheme (NPS).

2. 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 etc. or any action that abet any form of strike/protest in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(1) 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/protest. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also agreed 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 law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Kind 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 protestlGherao, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest/Gherao, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward a report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty in the day of protest/Gherao, i.e., 26.11.2018.

5. The 0M dated 26th April, 2004 was quashed by various benches of CAT/High Courts who had decided that the scheme could not modified retrospectively.

6. The position was reviewed in the light of the Court judgements in consultation with the Department of Expenditure. It was then decided vide this Department’s O.M. No. 49014/2/2014- Estt(C) dated 26.02.2016 and 0M. No. dated 28.07.2016 that the casual labourers who had been granted temporary status under the scheme, and have completed 3 years of continuous service after that were entitled to contribute to the General Provident Fund. It was also decided that of the service rendered under temporary status would be counted for the purpose of retirement benefits in respect of those casual labourers who have been regularised in terms of para 8 of the 0M dated 10.09. 1993. This was applicable to all casual labourers covered under the scheme Of 1993 whether they were regularised before or after 31.12.2003.

7. It was emphasised that the benefit of temporary status is available only to those casual labourers who were in employment on the date of the issue of the 0M dated 10th Septetmber, 1993 and were otherwise eligible for it. No grant of temporary status is permissible after that date. The employees erroneously granted temporary status between 10.09.1993 and the date of Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement in Union Of India And Anr vs Mohan Pal. 2002 (3) SCR 613, delivered on April, 2002, will however be deemed to have covered under the scheme of 10.09.93.

The matter has been examined in consultation with D/o Pensions & Pensioners’ Welfare, D/o Financial Services and D/o Expenditure.

10. Controller General of Accounts (CGA) have furnished following clarifications vide letter No. dt 11.03.2016 on a similar matter which are as under:

(i) Adjustment of Employees contribution in Accounts:- Amount may be credited to individual GPF Account and the account may he recasted permitting up-to-dare interest (Authority-FR-16 & Rule / of GPF Rules)

(ii) Adjustment Of Government contribution under NPS in Accounts. TO be accounted for as (-) Dr. to object heads Recoveries under major Head 2071- Pension and Other Retirement benefit-Minor Head 911- Deduct Recoveries Of over payment (GAR 35 and para 3.10 of List of Major and Minor Heads of Accounts)

(iii) Adjustment of increased value of subscription on account of appreciation of investment- may be for crediting the amount Govt. account under Contribution towards pensions and other Retirement Benefits 800- Other Receipts (Note under the above Head in LMMHA).

Subject: Cadre Review of Barrack and Stores Cadre- reg

Reference is invited to MoD letter no. 76002/1St CR/BS Cadre/CSCC/23(l)/2017/D(W-II) dated 15.12.2017 and letter dated 10.05.2018.

2. During Inter Ministerial consultation regarding the Post of Joint DG (Resources), DoPT have noted some procedural and other discrepancies and stated as under

(i) The proposal of BS Cadre does not specifically mention the cadre as organised Group ‘A’ Cadre. However, the proposal has been finalized in a manner that it contains attributes of organised Group ‘A’ service such as DR element at JTS to the extent of 50%, all standard grade of Group ‘A’ Service upto SAG, making all the posts above JTS promotional, provision of 30% NFSG and mention of NFU, As such, the proposal tantamount to formation of an Organised Group ‘A’ service.

(ii) As per procedural requirements, for formation of a Service as Group ‘A’ Cadre/Group ‘A’ Service/Organised ‘ Service, the cadre review guidelines issued by the DoPT on 14/12/2010 are applicable. Proposals for formation of a Service as Group ‘A’ Cadre/Group ‘A’ Service/Organised Services are to be placed. before the Cadre Review Committee (CRC) headed by Cabinet Secretary with Secretary (Personnel), Secretary (Expenditure), Secretary (Administrative Department) and the Senior Most Member of the service concerned as Members. Based on the recommendations of CRC, approval of MoS (PP) and Finance Minister is obtained and subsequently the proposal is submitted for approval of the cabinet. The above, procedure has not been completed in the Cadre Review of Barracks and Store Cadre and the sanction letter has been issued only on the basis of approval of Deptt. of Expenditure.

(iii) The Cadre Review for Barrack and Stores cadre may also have serious implication on. the concept of organized Group ‘A’ Service/ Group ‘A’ Service/ NFU/NFSG etc. and various court cases on the matter of organized status/NFU/extension of 30% NFSG etc.

(iv) Accordingly, MoD’s letter dated 15/ 12/2017 needs to be immediately withdrawal/kept on hold wrt Group ‘A’ cadre till the approval of the competent authority (i.e Cabinet) on the Cadre Review/formation of Group ‘A’ Cadre/Group ‘A’ service/organized status. The procedure as per Cadre Review guidelines issued by the DoPT on 14/12/2010 needs to be followed and proposal submitted to DoPT along with all necessary details. However, if it is intended to retain the cadre as Group ‘B’/Group ‘C’ and not as Group ‘A’, the proposal may be revisited accordingly in consultation with DoE and while revisiting the provisions of DR element at JTS, 30% NFSG, NFU etc. which are characteristic/attributes of organized Group ‘A’ service may be withdrawn.

3. E-in-C’s Branch is requested to review the Cadre Review proposal and resubmit the file in the light of DoPT instructions whether they intend to retain the cadre as Group ‘B’/ Group ‘C’ or intend to create an Organised Group ‘A’ service. Based on the inputs, the proposal will be resubmitted to DoE if it is decided to retain the Cadre as Group ‘B’/Group ‘C’ or will be taken up with DoPT as per the guidelines if the intention is to create an Organised Gr ‘A’ Service.

4. Further, E-in-C’s Branch is requested to keep the Pay and Allowances of Barrack and Stores Cadre (BSO and above) in abeyance in light of the DoPT instructions till finalization of the case and in case pay fixation of the posts (BSO and above) have been carried out immediate steps may be taken to withdraw the same.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.
