Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh discusses Insurance and Pension related issues with Dr Jitendra Singh

14 MAY 2018

A delegation of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), represented by its Pratiraksha (Industrial) unit called on the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and discussed wide range of issues related to Central Government employees, including Insurance, Pension, promotions and other matters.

In a memorandum presented to the Minister, the delegation submitted that the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme was notified on 1st November 1980 and came into effect from 1st January 1982. The scheme is intended to provide Central Government employees, at a low cost, on a wholly contributory and self-financing basis, the twin benefits of an insurance cover to their families in the event of death in service and a lump-sum payment to augment their financial sources on retirement. However, the BMS demands that the government should immediately notify the customized Group Insurance Scheme for Central Government employees with low premium and high risk cover.

The memorandum also expressed discontentment of a section of employees for being left out from the provision of minimum guaranteed pension under National Pension Scheme (NPS). It requested that a minimum pension be guaranteed equivalent to 50% of the employee’s last drawn Basic Pay plus Dearness Relief for neutralization of price rise.

Among other issues raised by the delegation was the demand for one-time relaxation for compassionate appointments. This has become important because a large number of wards are waiting for their appointment on compassionate grounds to look after their family.

The delegation also demanded the framing of an appropriate transfer policy in all cadres in favour of single woman/single mother employees. They requested that whenever such women are given postings, it should be mandatorily ensured that they are placed at stations closest to their hometown or the place of their choice.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that he will direct the DoPT to process the issues related to them, while other issues related to other Ministries will be referred for the perusal and views of the respective Ministries.

DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh

DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) is trying its best to clear the backlog of promotions which had accumulated for several years. He said, while the Government led by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi follows a policy of zero tolerance towards corrupt and non-performing officers, at the same time it is also supportive towards performing officers of integrity.

Dr Jitendra Singh was responding to a delegation of Central Secretariat employees who called on him here today and sought his intervention for timely promotion of lower grade staff members. They also submitted a memorandum on behalf the Central Secretariat MTS Association, wherein it was submitted that many of the lowermost working professionals in the Government of India get deprived of even single promotion during their entire service tenure.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, in order to bring in the ease of governance as well as objectivity in empanelments, the government has, in the last three years, improvised upon the procedures so as to ensure that there are no subjective preferences involved in carrying out the promotions. The procedures have been made more hi-tech using sophisticated technology tools to minimize the human interface, he added.

He said that in the past, every government took credit for bringing in a new legislation or rule while this government has done away with nearly 1500 rules which were either obsolete or had become irrelevant with the passage of time. All this is meant not only to ensure effective and timely delivery of outcomes for the public, but also to enable the employees to perform to the best of their ability, he added.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, he himself personally feels disturbed to come across cases where some of the employees working in the lowest rung of administration spend their entire service tenure of 30 to 35 years without securing a single promotion. He said, he has discussed the issue with all the senior officers in the Ministry and several innovative means are being evolved to avoid stagnation at middle and lower rungs of administration.

Dr Jitendra Singh also regretted that in a large number of cases, stagnation in promotions was the result of litigation amongst the employees themselves and even though the DoPT tries its best to put forward its view in the court of law, the delay becomes inevitable.

Dr Jitendra Singh launches Online Software for Departmental Proceedings

Dr Jitendra Singh launches Online Software for Departmental Proceedings 

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh launched the online Software for Departmental Proceedings, here today.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh complemented the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), CVC and other departments for their collective efforts in this direction. He said that the Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has been working on the principles of ‘maximum governance, minimum government’, transparency with accountability & citizen centricity and zero tolerance against corruption. The Minister said that the aim of the software is to see that the proceedings are done against corrupt officers and the honest officers are not put to harm due to inordinate delays. He said that the bureaucracy is the tool of governance and the aim of the government is to provide work-friendly environment to the officers. He said that the software will check that the honest officers are not intimidated and it will encourage the transparent functioning in the Government. It will ensure that the malpractices are not spared and the good practices are not punished, he added. He said that the efforts have been made to complete the disciplinary enquiry within 2 years. He said that reducing the timeline in completion of disciplinary proceedings will give faster relief to the honest officers.

The Secretary to Prime Minister, Shri Bhaskar Khulbe said that it is a big achievement accomplished by DoPT to bring departmental proceedings online. He said that delays are inordinate in the entire proceedings structure and this software will address that issue. He also emphasised upon the training of the disciplinary proceeding officials and also mentioned that a ready reckoner on rules and procedures should be available to the disciplinary proceeding officials.

The SS & EO, DoPT, Shri Rajiv Kumar said that DoPT has taken various steps to streamline the process and make it more transparent. This software will help fast track the process of departmental proceedings and bring more transparency in the system, he added.

The Secretary, CVC, Smt. Nilam Sawhney said that the focus of the software is to reduce the pendency in the cases related to disciplinary proceedings.

The online software portal for Departmental Proceedings is as per provisions of All India Service (AIS )(D&A) Rules, 1969, against All India Service officers. There had been serious concerns raised on the enormous time and delay encountered for completion of departmental proceedings instituted against government servants. As per a report of CVC, departmental proceedings which should ideally be completed within 2 years take anywhere from 2 to 7 years for completion. The delay is due to numerous factors which inter alia include delays in furnishing replies by the charged officer, finalisation/acquiring of documents required for proving the charges (listed documents), multiple adjournments during the inquiry process due to non-receipt or delayed receipt of information by the stakeholders and lack of accountability for completion of inquiry and in other stages during the departmental proceedings. To plug the delays and to complete inquiries expeditiously, specific timeframes were recently introduced through amendment to the AIS (D&A) Rules, 1969 which were notified on 20.01.2017. The amendments have provided a timeframe of six months for completion of inquiry. Any further extension will require approval of the disciplinary authority with cogent arguments. Similarly, timeframes have also been introduced for reply of the charged officer on the charge sheet and advice of the UPSC. Amendments have also been made to the analogous provisions of CSS (CCA) Rules in respect of Central Government Employees vide notification dated 02.06.2017.

To augment the amendments made to the rules and to further expedite the inquiry process, the online system for departmental proceedings has been introduced. The online system envisages use of cloud based technology and provides interface to different stakeholders like the Administrative Ministry, which is initiating the inquiry, the Cadre Controlling Authority, Charged Officer, Inquiry Officer etc. through separate modules. All documents required for the conduct of the inquiry will be stored online and authenticated through digital signature/e-signature. Further, all communication between the different stakeholders will be through the system with provision for email and SMS alerts. The software also provides status of all pending cases on real time basis along with alerts for adhering to the timeframes indicated in the rule. It is expected that the online system will enable monitoring of the departmental cases more effectively to complete inquiries within stipulated timeframes and fix accountability at different stages. The online portal will initially be adopted in respect of IAS officers posted in the Central Government and will subsequently be extended to AIS officers in the Central Government as well as Central Group ‘A’ employees. The State Government will also be involved in the subsequent phases for consideration of extension to AIS officers serving in the State Government.

The senior officers of the DoPT were also present on the occasion.

e-Service Book of DoPT employees

Dr Jitendra Singh launches e-Service Book of DoPT employees

Online Vigilance System of Board and below Board Level Executives of CPSEs launched

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North-Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh launched Online Vigilance System of Board and below Board Level Executives of Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) here today. He also launched e-Service Book of the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) employees on the occasion. The Cabinet Secretary Shri P K Sinha, the Additional Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, Dr P K Mishra, Central Vigilance Commissioner Shri K. V. Chowdary, Vigilance Commissioners Shri Rajiv and Dr T. M. Bhasin, CBI Director Shri Alok Kumar Verma, Secretary CVC, Smt Nilam Sawhney, Chairman, Public Enterprises Selection Board (PESB), Shri Sanjay Kothari, Secretary, DoPT Shri B. P. Sharma, Secretary to the Prime Minister, Shri Bhaskar Khulbe and senior officers of DoPT were also present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh said the launch of the online vigilance system is indeed a breakthrough. He said this will bring transparency and accountability in the system. As we move ahead with this initiative, many practical issues will keep arising and they will be tackled in due course, he added. Referring to the launch of e-Service Book, Dr Jitendra Singh said that in the long run it is going to touch each and every Central Government employee in the country. He said that most of the issues arise out of Service Book related matters and delay in disbursement of pensions, which will be resolved by this initiative. Dr Jitendra Singh said that these initiatives are in tune with the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s mantra of ‘Maximum Governance and Minimum Government’.

The Central Vigilance Commissioner Shri K. V. Chowdary said that the online vigilance system will be updated regularly and it is a major step in the process of promotions and appointments and will bring transparency in the process. It will minimize the scope of any confusion, he said. The CVC said that this will also curtail the delay in the processes, the cases which used to take months will now be resolved in one or two days. He said that improvements will be brought in as and when needed.

The Online Vigilance System is a technology based mechanism introduced to obtain vigilance status of 120-130 Board Level executive appointments made annually of Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) timely, accurately and objectively so that process of their appointment is expedited. The system would enable efficient vigilance clearance of officers on real time basis who apply for these senior level posts. This system would facilitate CVC to decide on Vigilance Clearance early based on updated information. System will cover all CPSEs, Banking, Insurance and other Financial Institutions. The Online system will have modules for DoPT, CVC, CVO, CBI, PESB and ACC. To make the system secure, the Web portal has the feature of authentication of users from Ministries/Departments by DoPT and the users of CPSEs by the concerned Ministry/Department. The users can log in based on e-sign (OTP to be sent to the email/mobile every time). The system also maintains transaction log. The implementation of online vigilance status of board level executives of CPSEs would require feeding/updating of data pertaining to the details of employee’s vigilance profile, i.e. pending disciplinary proceedings, status of complaints received, details of prosecution sanction, Agreed List, ODI etc. at regular intervals. The data will be updated every month by the CVOs. After a series of sensitisation meetings, at present, 143 CPSEs and 26 Ministries have entered data related to 402 board level officers and 1799 below board level officers of CPSEs. This system would be operational on receipt of the ‘Security Certificate’.

The e-Service Book, launched by Dr Jitendra Singh, is a document to record all the events of a Government servant in his/her entire service period and career, recording each and every administrative action concerning the Government servant right from the stage of his recruitment till his retirement to reflect the history of service of a Government employee. The format of e-service book was finalised on December 5, 2016 and it was decided to roll it out in DoPT initially so that necessary changes if required can be made along with credentials of software. Accordingly data of 661 employees of DoPT got verified and details as such Aadhaar, mobile no, DoB, leave balance, LTC details, salary details, designations, photographs etc were updated. Physical service book of employees also got scanned and uploaded as legacy data. It is decided to integrate Personnel Information Management System (PIMS) with Public Financial Management System (PFMS) so that all financial data will flow from PFMS to PIMS (e-service book), in general terms in case of change in salary particulars due to promotion, increment, DA etc. Change made in one system will automatically reflect in other system which will reduce chances of errors etc. It has also been decided to develop all other applications impacting service book such as Promotions, Advances, Family declarations of employees etc. 27 such applications have been identified for development; out of this 12 applications will be developed by 31st May 2017 and remaining by 31st December 2017.

DoPT has successfully implemented e-service book of its 661 employees and is now taking concrete steps to roll out of e-service book in respect of all Central Govt. employees in a time bound manner with the support of NIC and involvement of Cadre Controlling Authorities. In this regard a workshop of all Cadre Controlling Authorities (CCAs) is being organised in April 2017 to discuss roll out plan in all Ministries and Departments.

E-service book for all the employees working in attached offices, subordinate offices and autonomous bodies for which DoPT is administrative department would be undertaken shortly and it will be completed for approximately 10,000 employees by 30th June 2017. It is planned to roll out e-service book of all civilian employees (approximately 41 lakh) of Govt. of India by 31st March 2018 in consultation with all CCAs.

The launch of e-Service book is expected to bring many positive outcomes. The shift to electronic service book would free up significant manpower to concentrate on core works of the Department. It will lead to stoppage of physical movement of Service Book and other documents between the Departments that will save time of the organisation and problem of missing Service Book will be eliminated. This will also enable timely verification of Service Book that will facilitate timely processing and finalization of pensions. Availability of centralized data will enable government for policy research and planning as educational qualifications and other competencies and deficiencies may be easily obtained. It will enable Government to take transfer and posting decisions more pragmatically based on reliable first hand data.

Dr Jitendra Singh says all Central Ministries & Departments to be linked to the online Pension Sanction and Payment Tracking System Bhavishya soon

Dr Jitendra Singh says all Central Ministries & Departments to be linked to the online Pension Sanction and Payment Tracking System ‘Bhavishya’ soon

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS (IC) for Youth Affairs and Sports, MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh has said all Central Ministries and Departments will be linked to the online Pension Sanction and Payment Tracking System ‘Bhavishya’ very soon. Chairing the 28th meeting of the Standing Committee of Voluntary Agencies (SCOVA) here today, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that with this step, the pension release to the retired employees will be expedited and it will also help quick resolution of pending issues.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said we need to put in place an institutionalized mechanism to make good use of the knowledge, experience and efforts of the retired employees which can help in the value addition to the current scenario. India has a large number of pensioners today and to make best use of them is a challenge, he added. Dr. Jitendra Singh said the retired employees are a healthy and productive workforce for India and we need to streamline and channelize their energies in a productive direction. We should learn from the pensioners’ experience, he added. Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the Government has started ‘Anubhav’ scheme for the retiring employees to write an account of their experiences which can be helpful in improving the system. He also said that a focused approach and emphatic attitude needs to be developed towards the pensioners.

Earlier, the Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare and Secretary, Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances, Shri C. Viswanath directed that all the Pension Payment Order (PPOs) should be digitized. The 28th SCOVA meeting was attended by the member Pensioners Associations and senior officers of the important Ministries/Departments of Government of India.

The Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare has taken various initiatives for the welfare of the pensioners. The online Pension Sanction and Payment Tracking System ‘Bhavishya’ has introduced transparency and accountability into the pension sanction and payment process, thereby helping eliminate delays and bring satisfaction to the retiring employees and pensioners. The system keeps retiring employees and administration informed of the progress of pension sanction process through SMS/e-mail. In the year 2015-16, the scheme has been scaled up and will eventually cover all 9,000 Drawing & Disbursal Offices (DDOs) in the country.

‘Sankalp’ is an initiative for motivating retiring employees and pensioners to take up voluntary work after retirement so as to channelize their experience and skill towards productive work for society and nation building. The Department has so far registered 1,812 Pensioners, 16 Organisations and 19 Pensioners Associations under this project. Some Pensioners Associations have done exemplary work under the initiative.

‘Anubhav’ was launched in February, 2015 on the direction of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. This initiative is to showcase the outstanding work done by retiring employee that contributed to the efficiency, economy and effectiveness in Government functioning. It is envisaged that over a period of time this will create a wealth of information, institutional memory and innovative ideas and will motivate employees.

‘Jeevan Pramaan’ is a facility created for submission of Aadhaar based digital life certificate. This scheme was initiated by the Prime Minister on November 10, 2014. This scheme provides an excellent facility for the benefit of pensioners to submit their digital life certificate from the comfort of their homes. The Pensioners Associations are actively involved in motivating their fellow pensioners to get their pension accounts seeded with Aadhaar Number. Due to continuous efforts, as on date around 34 lakh i.e 71% of Central Government pensioners have seeded their bank accounts with Aadhaar Numbers.

Dr Jitendra Singh awards Certificates of Appreciation to the Ministries/Departments for their performance in CPGRAMS

Dr Jitendra Singh awards Certificates of Appreciation to the Ministries/Departments for their performance in CPGRAMS
The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports, MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh awarded the Certificates of Appreciation to the Ministries/Departments based on their performance in the Centralized Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System (CPGRAMS), here today.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Jitendra Singh said that the number of grievances received have increased in the last two years. It is an indication of increasing faith of the citizens in the grievance redressal mechanism, he added. He also said that he himself and the senior officers of Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) have been personally calling the citizens whose grievances have been redressed. These calls are made at random to the citizens to take feedback from them and to ascertain their satisfaction level.

The following Ministries/ Departments have been awarded:

CPGRAMS

From each category one Ministry/Department is selected for issue of Certificate of Appreciation based on the parameters of percentage of disposal and quality of disposal. A three member Committee evaluates the performance for each quarter.

The CPGRAMS is an online web enabled application to facilitate speedy redress of public grievances as it allows for online lodging and status tracking of grievances by the citizens. The system is flexible enough to be extended to multiple levels as per the requirement of concerned Ministry/Department/ Govt. Organization for speedy forwarding and redress of grievance. There has been a five-fold jump in Public Grievances to 10 lakh complaints in 2015-16 over previous year. With continuous monitoring a record disposal of 95% has been achieved.

For greater motivation towards redress of public grievances and also for introducing a sense of competiveness among the nodal officers for public grievances belonging to different Ministries/Departments, a decision was taken to issue Certificate of Appreciation to the best Ministries/Departments based on their performance with reference to the percentage of disposal and the quality of disposal of public grievances in the defined three categories for each quarter.

The aim of the Government is to have minimum Government and maximum Governance with citizen centric approach. Accordingly, an attempt to put in place a mechanism to make all grievances count is by encouraging all Ministries/ Departments to view public grievances with utmost importance and give effective and speedy redress. Award Scheme is expected to bring a sense of competitiveness in Ministries/ Departments to address public grievances.

Shri C. Viswanath, Secretary, DARPG, Smt. Usha Sharma, Additional Secretary, DARPG and other senior officers of the Department were also present on the occasion.
