Delhi Commission for Women notice to DoPT over blind woman’s appointment cancellation

Delhi Commission for Women notice to DoPT over blind woman’s appointment cancellation

New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) today issued notice to Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) in connection with a complaint by a blind women alleging cancellation of appointment in Ministry of Railway due to her disability.

The woman who qualified the civil services examination in 2015 has alleged that she was initially allotted Indian Railways Accounts Service.

The woman claimed her appointment was cancelled because of her blindness and later when she excessively followed it up with DoPT, she was reallocated Postal and Telecommunication, Accounts and Finance Service.

“While she was allocated the IRAS service as per her rank in CSE-2015, her appointment was cancelled by the Ministry of Railways. She has further alleged that after several weeks of follow-ups she has now been allocated IP and TAF service which is in contravention of her rank, merit and preference of service,” DCW Chief Swati Maliwal said in the notice issued to DoPT Secretary BP Sharma.

“It is evident that the lady has already undergone a great deal of struggle and after painstaking efforts has cleared the civil services examination. Crucial time of training and foundation course has been wasted due to systemic delays. Therefore, it is necessary that immediate action is taken to rectify the same,” the notice further read.

The commission has sought within a week’s time the factual report of the woman’s candidature, reasons for rejection of IRAS service initially allocated to her and the proposed action plan of the DoPT to resolve the issue and compensate the loss of time to the candidate.

Grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence – BPMS

Grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence – BPMS

Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh delegation meets Dr Jitendra Singh

A delegation of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh’s Industrial Unit, “Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh”, held a meeting with Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for grant of one-time relaxation from the ceiling of 5% for compassionate appointments in the Ministry of Defence. The delegation also requested the Minister to issue directions to expedite the follow-up pertaining to LTC cases pending in the DoPT.

The members of the delegation sought to draw Dr Jitendra Singh’s attention to an earlier meeting with him wherein they had brought to his notice that there is 5.85 lakh sanctioned strength of Defence Civilians, but the existing strength is only 3.98 lakh as mentioned in the report of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC). Thus, there is a deficiency of 1.87 lakh civilian manpower and there are about 20,000 aspirants who are seeking appointment on compassionate grounds. The members of the delegation recalled that Dr Jitendra Singh had given a positive response to them and subsequently also written to the Defence Minister to take cognizance of the issue.

As per an OM of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), there is a provision to give compassionate appointment to one of the dependants for the survival of the family in case the employee unfortunately dies during the service period leaving the family behind. But the provision for such appointment is limited to 5% of the vacancies, as a result of which, according to the members of delegation, a large number of wards are kept waiting for appointment on compassionate ground because of the ceiling.

The delegation referred to an earlier letter written by Dr Jitendra Singh to the Minister of Defence, Shri Manohar Parrikar wherein the former had requested for intervention by the Defence Ministry so that the DoPT could accordingly proceed in the matter. They requested Dr Jitendra Singh to take up the issue once again with the Ministry of Defence so that their demand could be addressed. Dr Jitendra Singh assured the members of delegation that he would again seek the views of the Minister of Defence and try to work out whatever feasible.

Subject: Minutes of the Seventh meeting of the Committee set up to examine feasibility of implementation of recommendation of 7th CPC for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners held on 17.10.2016 -reg.
The ‘minutes of the seventh meeting of the Committee set up to examine feasibility of implementation of recommendation of 7th CPC for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners held under the Chairmanship of Special Secretary & FA, Ministry of Home Affairs with JCM (Staff Side) on 17.10.2016 at Sardar Patel Bhawan, New Delhi is hereby forwarded for information and further necessary action.

Sd/-
(Harjit Singh)
Director (Pension Policy)

Minutes of the 7th meeting of the Committee set up to examine feasibility of implementation of recommendation of Seventh CPC for revision of pension of Pre-2016 held on 17.10.2016 at Sardar Patel Bhawan, New Delhi.

7th meeting of Committee for examination of feasibility of implementation of recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners was held on 17.10.2016 at Sardar Patel Bhawan, New Delhi. As Secretary (Pension) was on leave, Ms. Sanjeevanee Kutty, Special Secretary & Financial Advisor, Ministry of Home Affairs chaired the meeting. The following were present from official side:

1. Sh. Ashok Kumar Dash, Member (Personnel), Department of posts.
2. Sh. Rozy Agarwal, Joint (CGDA), Ministry of Defence.
3. Sh. R. K. Chaturvedi, Joint Secretary, Implementation Cell, Department of Expenditure.
4. Ms. Santosh, Joint Secretary, Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare.
5. Ms. Vandana Sharma, Additional Secretary, DOP&PW (representing Secretary, Department of Pension & PW).
6. Sh. Sanjay Singh, Chief Controller (Pension), CPAO (representing Controller General of Accounts).
7. Sh. Tanveer Ahmad, Executive Director, Railway Board (representing Member Staff Railway Board).

2. The following were present from JCM (Staff side) :

1. Shiv Gopal Mishra, Secretary, JCM.
2. Sh. Guman Singh, Member
3. Sh. J. R. Bhosale, Member
4. Sh. K. K. N. Kutty, Member
5. Sh. C. Srikumar, Member
6. Sh. M. S. Raja, Member

3. Recalling the discussion in the last meeting on 6.10.2016, Additional Secretary (Pension) requested the Staff side of the JCM for their considered views in regard to the alternate method of fixation of notional pay in each intervening Pay Commissions for revision of pension as on 1.1.2016, which was suggested by the Committee in that meeting.

4. The Staff side appreciated the concern shown by the Committee for finding a viable solution to the issue of revision of pension of Pre-2016 pensioners. They agreed that the increments method recommended by the Pay Commission for fixation of notional pension for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners may result in large scale anomalies and that the method of notional pay fixation in each intervening Pay Commission is a much more rational and scientific method. The pay fixation method would benefit almost all pre-2016 pensioners and would ensure smoother and faster revision of pension. In fact, JCM (Staff side) had, itself, suggested the pay fixation method for revision of pension to the Seventh CPC.

5. JCM (Staff side), however, mentioned that since the increment method recommended by the Seventh CPC has been accepted by the Cabinet subject to its implementation being found feasible by the Committee, a small number of pensioners who are likely to get higher benefit by increments method (mostly retired before 1.1.1996) may feel aggrieved if their pension is not revised by that method. This may lead to litigation.

6. Sh. Tanveer Ahmad, Executive Director, Railway Board mentioned that pensioners who were promoted just before their retirement would be at a disadvantageous position on implementation of the Increment Method.. Chief Controller, CPAO mentioned that when large scale anomalies are visualized even before actual implementation of the increment method, it would not be advisable to go ahead with implementation of that method.

7. Staff side suggested that both the options i.e. Increments Method as well as Pay Fixation Method may be offered to the pre-2016 pensioners along with the 2.57 Fitment Method (already implemented) and they may be asked to choose one of these options for revision of their pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016. This may also reduce the chances of anomalies on account of implementation of the Increments Method.

8. Special Secretary & FA, Ministry of Home Affairs informed that the Committee will take an appropriate view in the matter after taking into account all the relevant aspects including the views expressed by the Staff side of the JCM.

9. The meeting ended with a vote of thanks to the chair.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Court orders against Government of India instructions on service matters – consultation with Ministry of Law and Department of Personnel and Training on question of filing appeals.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 16.03.2016 (copy enclosed) on the above mentioned subject and to say that the Department of Personnel and Training is the nodal Department that formulates policies on service matters and issues instructions in this regard from time to time. Vide para 4 of the O.M. dated 16.03.2016, it was explained how action on different decisions/orders of the Courts/CAT has to be taken after consulting Department of Legal Affairs and DOP&T.

2. In this regard, it is pertinent to point out here that the Parliament committee on the Welfare of SCs and STs in its report has observed that the above instructions are not being followed stringently by the Ministries/ Departments. The Ministries/Departments are independently fighting out service related cases to the detriment of employees particularly those belonging to the reserved categories. The Committee, therefore, desired that this Department reiterate the standing instructions.

3. In view of the above, all the Ministries/ Departments are once again requested to scrupulously follow the instructions contained in this Department’s OM dated 16.03.2016 while taking action on the decisions/orders of the Courts/CAT.

CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion

CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion

F. No. 11012/12/2016-Estt.A-III
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training
Establishment A-III Desk

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated: 6th December, 2016

 OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 – Clarification regarding effect of warning, censure etc on promotion.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No. 11012/6/2008-Estt.(A) dated 7th July, 2008 on the above mentioned subject and to say that vide para 2(iii) of the said OM, it was instructed that where a departmental proceeding has been instituted, and it is considered that a Government servant deserves to be penalized for the offence/misconduct, one of the prescribed penalties may only be awarded and no warning, recordable or otherwise, should be issued to the Government servant. However, while considering cases for empanelment, the ACC has observed that in many cases, rather than exonerating the officer or imposing a penalty on him, administrative warning is issued even when disciplinary proceeding were drawn against him. Administrative warning is not recognized as a penalty.

2. In view of the above, the following position as contained in various instructions issued so far on warning/Censure etc. are reiterated for strict compliance:

(i) As clarified in the Ministry of Home Affairs O.M. No. 39/21/56-Estt.(A) dated 13 th December, 1956, warning is administered by any authority superior to a Government employee in the event of minor lapses like negligence, carelessness, lack of thoroughness, delay etc. It is an administrative device in the hands of superior authorities for cautioning the Government employees with a view to toning up efficiency and maintaining discipline. There is, therefore, no objection to the continuance of this system. However, where a copy of the warning is also kept in the Confidential Report dossier, it will be taken to constitute an adverse entry and the officer so warned will have the right to represent against the same in accordance with the existing instructions relating to communication of adverse remarks and consideration of representations against them.

(ii) Where a departmental proceeding has been instituted under the provisions of CCS(CC&A) Rules 1965, after the conclusion of disciplinary proceedings, the officer is either exonerated or where it is considered that some blame attaches to the officer, he should be awarded one of the recognized statutory penalties as given in Rule 11 of the CCS (CCA) Rules, 1965 i.e. at least ‘Censure’ should be imposed. In such a situation, a warning, recordable or otherwise, should not be issued.

(iii) Warning, letter of caution, reprimands or advisories administered to Government servants do not amount to a penalty and, therefore, will not constitute a bar for consideration of such Government servants for promotion.

3. All the disciplinary authorities in Ministries/Departments are, therefore, requested to keep in view the above guidelines while dealing with disciplinary case against the Government servants.

4. Hindi version will follow.
