DoPT: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964

All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964

DoPT

MOST IMMEDIATE
OUT TODAY

No.45018/1/2017-Vig.

Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 18th September, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding.

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), New Delhi has decided to observe “All India Protest Day” on 19th September, 2018 in support of the following issues:

i. Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula,
ii. Scrapping of the New Contributory Pension Scheme; and
iii. Allow Option No. 1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.

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 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.

Scheme of optional All India Leave Travel Concession (AILTC) facility, once in a block of four years (i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes (PP)

Scheme of optional ‘All India Leave Travel Concession’ (AILTC) facility, once in a block of four years (i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes (PP).

RBE No. 130/2018

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No.E(W)2017/PS5-1/3

New Delhi, dated 10.09.2018

The General Managers (P)
All Zonal Railways &
Production Units.

Sub: Scheme of optional ‘All India Leave Travel Concession’ (AILTC) facility, once in a block of four years (i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes (PP).

Ref: Department of Personnel & Training (DoP&T)’s OM No.31011/15/2017- Estt.A-IV dated 27.03.2018.

Pursuant to recommendations of Seventh CPC, DoP&T have communicated Government’s decision, vide their OM referred above, to allow the Railway employees to avail AILTC facility in accordance with the ‘Central Civil Services (Leave Travel Concession) Rules, 1988′ i.e. CCS (LTC) Rules.

2. Accordingly, in exercise of powers conferred vide Rule 1(3)(iii) of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (Second Edition-1993), the Competent Authority in the Ministry of Railways has accorded approval to exclude such railway servants and other eligible persons (i.e. eligible for PP) from the facility of Privilege Passes in that particular calendar year in which they opt for AILTC facility. Applicants may avail AILTC facility subject to conditions stipulated in para 2 of the referred OM dated 27.03.2018 (copy enclosed as Annexure-I). This facility is further subject to procedural guidelines/conditions stipulated hereunder.

3. These orders shall be applicable to (i) Railway Servants entitled to PPs; (ii) Other government department’s officials serving in railways on deputation and entitled to PPs; (iii) Other officials serving in railways and entitled to PPs; and (iv) Officials of Audit Department (Railway) entitled to PPs. The Competent Authorities concerned shall modify terms and condition of such officials as required and necessary. These orders would not be applicable to those who are undergoing minor penalty of stoppage of even a single PP at the time of application for availing AILTC.

4. Those officials, who opt for AILTC facility, would be issued a “Privilege Pass Surrender Certificate” (PPSC) i.e. a pre-requisite for availing AILTC facility. The “Pass Issuing Authority” (PIA) shall issue the PPSC as per format at Annexure-II, duly following the procedure stipulated as under:-

(i) Applicant employee will submit an application (format at Annexure-III) to the concerned PIA for issue of a PPSC.

(ii) Thereafter, the PIA will first check the “Privilege Pass Account” (PPA) of the ‘ applicant to verify whether the applicant has already availed any PP or not in that particular calendar year.

(iii) If applicant has already availed a PP in that particular calendar year, then the application for issue of PPSC would be rejected and the applicant should be intimated accordingly, as per format at Annexure-IV.

(iv) If applicant has not availed any PP in that particular calendar year, the PIA concerned will disallow operation of PPA by blocking it with an entry (PPSC issued on date …./…/…… /) in PPA so that the applicant is barred from drawing any PP, even inadvertently, during that particular calendar year in which AILTC facility has been opted.

(v) If both husband and wife are entitled to PPs, both have to surrender their respective entitled PPs that are admissible to them in the calendar year in which either of them opt for AILTC facility. In this scenario, PIA will issue a single composite PPSC duly completing Part-II of the PPSC. The following procedure will be followed, additionally, in such cases:-

(a) If PPAs of both the spouses are maintained by same PIA at the time of applying for AILTC facility, then the composite PPSC will be issued by the PIA after receipt of a joint application from both of them.

(b) If PIAs of both the spouses are different (due to any reason or on account of their working in separate Railways/Divisions/Units, etc.), the PPSC shall be issued by the PIA concerned of the applicant only after receipt of a “Confirmation Note in lieu of PPSC”(CN) to be issued (by other PIA as per format in Annexure-V) in favour of spouse of the main applicant. The spouse will apply for CN as per format at Annexure-VI.

(vi) In case of a deputationist (i.e. Railway servant serving on deputation etc in any other organization) and eligible for PPs as per statutory rules, the PIA concerned will issue PPSC as per aforementioned procedure.

(vii) The PIA will issue PPSC/CN or intimate about rejection/non-acceptance of the request, as the case may be, within ten working days of receipt of application.

(viii) After issue of PPSC/CN, request for its cancellation and re-opening of PPA will not be entertained on any ground, even if AILTC facility could not be availed due to whatsoever reason i.e. whether administrative or personal reasons.

(ix) The role of PIAs will cease once “PPSC” is issued to the applicant. Matters such as advance/reimbursement/travel entitlements during availing of AILTC shall be dealt by other respective Sections of Personnel/Accounts Department handling Travelling Allowance claims, taking into account PPSC as a basic document alongwith other documents stipulated in the CCS (LTC) Rules.

(x) A duplicate PPSC/CN can only be issued under special circumstances by the PIA concerned after taking approval of the Principal CPO.

5. The Railways should administer the AILTC facility strictly in accordance with the CCS (LTC) Rules-1988, as modified from time to time, without any deviation. It may be noted that ‘Home Town LTC/Home Town converted LTC” shall not be admissible to railway servants and the definitions of beneficiaries for LTC (e.g. members of family, dependents), dependency criteria, etc are different from that of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986. A copy of DoP&T’s letter No.31011/7/2013-Estt.(A)-IV dated 26.09.2014, containing clarifications and illustrations on administering LTC entitlements of “Fresh Recruits” is enclosed as Annexure-VII. Accordingly, the AILTC facility shall be regulated fully by the conditions and definitions as laid down in the CCS (LTC) Rules.

6. Regarding travel entitlements for availing of AILTC facility, copies of following OMs, as applicable on date, are enclosed:-

Issued by Details Annexure No.
Ministry Of Finance OM No.19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 Annexure – VIII
DoP&T OM No.31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dt.19.09.2017 Annexure-IX
DoP&T OM No.31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dt.18.01.2018 Annexure-X

It may be noted that DoP&T have stipulated vide their OM dated 19.09.2017 that (i) the travel entitlements for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide MoF’s OM dated 13.07.2017, excepting the air travel entitlement for the employees in Level 6 to 8 of the Pay Matrix (para 3) and (ii) the other conditions that would govern the LTC facility (para 4). Hence, the same entitlement prevailing in civil side (i.e. not as per railway entitlement) will be applicable for availing  AILTC facility.

7. To summarize, the position, as contained in above OMs, with certain modifications, is briefly brought out in the table below:-

Pay Level in Pay Matrix Travel/LTC entitlement for AILTC
Level 1 to 5 Travel entitlement/Class of travel, etc in various modes of transports shall be as per Ministry of Finance’s OM No. 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 subject to other conditions stipulated in DoP&T’s OM No. 31011/8/2017-Estt- A-IV dated 19.09.2017.
Level 6 to 8 Air travel entitlement stipulated in Ministry of Finance’s OM No. 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 is not admissible for LTC. However, all other entitlements shall be as per aforementioned MoF’ OM dated 13.07.2017 and subject to other conditions stipulated in aforementioned DoP&T’s OM dated 19.09.2017.
Level 9 to 13 and NFSAG officers Travel entitlement/Class of travel, etc in various modes of transports shall be as per Ministry of Finance’s OM No. officers 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 subject to other conditions stipulated in DoP&T’s OM No. 31011/8/2017-Estt- A-TV dated 19.09.2017.
Level 14 & above (excluding NFSAG Officers) Travel entitlement/Class of travel, etc in various modes of transports shall be as per Ministry of Finance’s OM No.19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 subject to other conditions stipulated in DoP&T’s OM No. 31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dated 19.09.2017 and also as clarified vide DoP&T’s OM No.31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dated 18.01.2018.

8. The Zonal Railways and PUs are advised to get themselves familiarized with the extant CCS (LTC) Rules as well as clarifications available in the official website of DoP&T (i.e. presently (i) https://dopt.gov.in/ccs-ltc-rules and (i) https://dopt.gov.in/ notifications/oms-and-orders/ © Establishment o LTC Rules). It may also be noted that OMs/Notifications related to CCS (LTC) Rules issued and uploaded from time to time by DoP&T in their official website will come into force with immediate effect for regulation of AILTC facility as being extended by this order. Hence, these orders/instructions will not be circulated separately by the Ministry of Railways. Accordingly, the Railways and PUs should regularly visit the official website of DoP&T and download the latest instructions from time to time for settling claims of LTC etc and for compliance.

9. However, if any clarification in respect of TA Rules notified by Ministry of Finance is required, the same may be addressed to the Nodal Dte. in Board’s office viz. Finance Establishment Dte. for further examination and issue of appropriate clarification/reply.

10.This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of Ministry of Railways.

Non-disclosure to draw penal provisions

Ministry of Women and Child Development

Disclosure of compliance under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act in the Annual Reports of Private companies now made Mandatory: Ministry of Corporate Affairs amends the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014.

“A major step towards making the workplace safe for the women in the private sector”: Smt. Maneka Sanjay Gandhi

Non-disclosure to draw penal provisions

13 AUG 2018

In order to ensure safe workplaces for Women in the private sector, the Ministry of Women and Child had requested Hon’ble Minister for Corporate Affairs to mandate the disclosure regarding implementation of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act in the Directors Report of every company. Vide its notification dated 31.07.2018,the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has amended the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014, issued under Section-134 of the Companies Act, by inserting clause(X) as follows:-

“A statement that the Company has complied with provisions relating to the constitution of Internal Complaints Committee under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013″.

While thanking Hon’ble Minister for Corporate Affairs, Smt. Maneka Sanjay Gandhi stated that, “this is a major step towards making the workplace safe for the women in the private sector”. Smt. Gandhi also stated that she will be requesting SEBI to suitably incorporate this disclosure in the Corporate Governance reports of the listed Companies. This will cast as ever higher responsibility on the Directors of these Companies for implementation of the Act.

It may be noted that Section-134 of the Companies Act, 2013 provides the disclosure framework which the Directors of every company are required to comply with in the Annual Reports. This section also includes the penal provisions for non-disclosure. The inclusion of the compliance under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act in the non-financial disclosures will ensure that the issue gets into the focus into Board of Directors of the companies

The Ministry of Women and Child Development has been making continuous efforts to mainstream the implementation of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013. Detailed Rules under the Act were issued. It was ensured that all the ministries/ departments under the central government as well as the organizations working directly under them constitute the Internal Complaints Committee as mandated under them Act. A number of instructions have been issued by the DoPT on the request of the ministry to provide immediate relief to the women working in central government against sexual harassment at workplace. The ministry has also empanelled a number of entities who can provide training to any organization on effective implementation of the provisions of the Act. The ministry has provided a facility to all working women to file complaints under this Act directly with the ministry through the SHE-Box.

Implement the MACP Scheme from 01.01.2006: NCJCM writes to DoPT

Implement the MACP Scheme from 01.01.2006: NCJCM writes to DoPT

Dated: August 7, 2018

13-C, Ferozshah Road, New delhi-110001

No.NC-JCM-2017/MACP
The Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training,
North Block, New Delhi

Sub:- Item No.2,10 and 48 of the Joint Committee of MACP – Agenda items of the Standing Committee
Ref:- 1. This office letter of even number dated 16/01/2018 and 27/03/2018
2. MOD letter No.14(1)/99-D(AG) dated 25th July 2018

Dear Sir,

This office vide Letters referred at 1 above dated 16/01/2018 and 27/03/2018 has represented to your good self to make the MACP scheme effective from 1/1/2006 since the Hon’ble Supreme Court in its order in WP 3744 of 2016 dated 08/12/2017 in the matter of UOI Vs Shri Balbir Singh Turn & Anr has directed the Govt. of India to implement the MACP Scheme retro spectively from 1/112006. Till date we have not received any positive response from the DOPT. However the MOD vide letter referred at 2 above (copy enclosed) have now issued instructions to implement the MACP Scheme w.e.f. 1/1/2006 to the Armed Force Personnel by implementing the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgment. Having implemented the judgment to one set of employees and denying the same to the similarly placed employees is discriminatory and unjustified.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that judicial decisions in matter of a general nature should be extended to all similarly placed employees. In the case of Inderpal Yadav Vs Union of India (1985) SCC 648, the Apex court has held as Under:-

“Those who could not come to the court need not be at a comparative disadvantage position to those who rushed in here, if they are otherwise similarly situated, they are entitled to similar treatment”

In view of the above to avoid multiplicity of litigations on the matter and since the item is also before the Joint Committee on MACP, it is requested that Govt. orders may please be issued for implementing the MACP Scheme w.e.f 1/1/2006. While issuing such an order, it may also be clarified that the employees who were granted the benefit of ACP between 1.1.2006 to 31.08.2008 are not adversely affected and no recovery is ordered from them in this connection.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary
