Office Memorandum

Sub: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

Consequent upon the issuance of this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 13.07.2017 regarding implementation of recommendations of 7th CPC on Travelling Allowance (TA), various references are being received in this Department seeking clarification regarding admissibility of Daily Allowance (DA) in case Govt. employee avails free boarding and lodging.

2. The 6th CPC had changed the old concept of Daily Allowance by introducing reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges on production of vouchers for the same. Since this was a new concept, therefore, option was given to the employees to choose either the old 5th CPC single rate of DA or the new system of DA based on reimbursement of expenses as per 6th CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to continue the concept of reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges with the exception that vouchers are not required to be produced for Food Bills.

3. The matter regarding admissibility of DA in case of free boarding and lodging, has been considered in this Department. Daily Allowance is given to the Govt. employees as a reimbursement of the expenditure incurred by him on tour for his stay, food and travel at that station. ln case of free boarding and lodging, the Govt. employee, if incurring any expenditure on local travel, can claim the same as per para 2 E (i) and (iii) of the Annexure to 0.M. of even No. dated 13.07.2017. The earlier system of giving 25% of DA is being discontinued. Also, after implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, the facility of DA at 5th CPC rates is done away with.

4. This is issued with the approval of Secretary (Expenditure). Hindi version is attached.

SCoS: Instructions for processing foreign visits of officers of the Government of India for approval of Screening Committee of Secretaries

Instructions for processing foreign visits of officers of the Government of India for approval of Screening Committee of Secretaries (SCoS)

No. 4(4)/E.Coord/2015
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

 New Delhi, 27th November 2017

Subject: Instructions for processing foreign visits of officers of the Government of India for approval of Screening Committee of Secretaries (SCoS)

Reference is invited to this Department’s OM of even number dated 5th January 2016 on the above subject. Para 22 of the ibid OM provides that ‘Proposals, complete in all respects, seeking approval of SCoS shall be submitted to Department of Expenditure 15 days prior to departure date of delegation’.

2.It has been observed that Ministries/Departments are not submitting their proposals within the stipulated time, often sending proposals one day prior to the departure of the official (s). While it is understandable that requisite approvals and clearances from different agencies/departments take time, it has been observed that Ministries/Departments have been casual in processing their proposals internally without giving due regard to the time frame stipulated for receiving the proposals in Department of Expenditure and seeking approval of the SCoS. Late receipt of proposals for SCoS approval leads to administrative inconveniences both for the SCoS and Ministries/Departments.

3.Hence, Ministries/Departments are directed to ensure that as far as possible, proposals of foreign visits requiring SCoS approval are received 15 days prior to departure date of the delegation but not later than 5 days before date of departure of the delegation. Proposals not adhering to the time frame are liable to be rejected.

7th CPC Pay Matrix Level-13 Modification – Multiplying Factor 2.67

Modification of Level-13 of Pay Matrix – Issues regarding

7th-CPC-pay-matrix-level-13-multiplying-factor

No.4-6/2017-IC/E-III(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

North Block, New Delhi
Dated,the 28th September, 2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Modification of Level-13 of Pay Matrix – Issues regarding

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to the Pay Matrix contained in Part A of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 as promulgated vide notification No.GSR 721 (E) dated 25th July, 2016, where the Level-13 of the Pay Matrix starts at Rs.1,18,500 at Cell one and ends at Rs.2,14,100 at Cell twenty one and to state that in terms of CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 promulgated vide G5R 592(E) dated 15.6.2017, the said Level 13 of the Pay Matrix has been modified. The modified Level 13 starts at Rs.1,23,100 at Cell one, ending at Rs.2,15,900 at Cell twenty.

2.The modified Level-13 in terms of the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 takes effect from 1st January,2016. Accordingly, the earlier Level-13 of the Pay Matrix as contained in CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 notified on 25.7.2016 and effective from 1st January, 2016 has become non-existent ab-initio with the promulgation of the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017. The modified Level 13 is an improvement on the earlier Level 13 in as much as the earlier Level 13 is based on the ‘Index of Rationalisation’ (IOR) of 2.57, whereas the modified Level 13 is based on the IOR of 2.67. It is for this reason of improvement that the modified Level 13 begins at Rs.1,23,100, as against the earlier one which began at Rs.1,18,500.

3. Consequent upon the aforesaid modification of Level 13 in terms of the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 effective from 1.1.2016 and the resultant re-fixation of pay therein in supersession of the earlier pay fixation, references have been received from Ministries/Departments seeking clarifications on certain issues. These issues and the decisions thereon are brought in the succeeding paragraphs.

Issue No. 1 – Whether pay in the Level-13 is to be fixed by multiplying by a factor of 2.57 or 2.67

4. The 7th Central Pay Commission, while formulating the various Levels contained in the Pay Matrix, corresponding to the pre-Revised pay structure, used “Index Of Rationalization” (IOR) to arrive at the starting Cell of each Level (the 1st Cell) of the Pay Matrix. This IOR has been applied by the Commission on the minimum entry pay corresponding to the successive Grades Pay in the pre-Revised pay structure. In Level-13 of the Pay Matrix, as formulated by the 7th CPC and as accepted by the Government in terms of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 promulgated vide notification dt. 25.7.2016, the IOR was 2.57. The IOR in respect of both Levels 12 and Level 13-A, i.e., Levels immediately lower and immediately higher than Level-13, is 2.67. Therefore, the modified Level-13 in terms of the Pay Matrix contained in the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 has also been formulated based on the IOR of 2.67.

5.While the concept of the IOR, as applied by the 7th CPC, is exclusively in regard to formulation of the Levels in Pay Matrix, the formula for fixation of pay in the Pay Matrix based on the basic pay drawn in the pre-revised pay structure for the purpose of migration to the Pay Matrix, as recommended by the 7th CPC, is based on the fitment factor of 2.57. The Commission recommends ” this fitment factor of 2.57 is being proposed to be applied uniformly for all employees.” Accordingly, Rule 7 (1)(A)(i) of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, relating to fixation of pay in the revised pay structure, clearly provides that “in case of all employees the pay in the applicable level in the Pay Matrix shall be the pay obtained by multiplying the existing pay by a factor of 2.57………”

6.Thus, the fitment factor for the purpose of fixation of pay in all the Levels of Pay Matrix in the revised pay structure is altogether different from the IOR. The fitment factor of 2.57 is uniformly applicable for all employees for the purpose of fixation of pay in all the Levels of Pay Matrix. This has no relation with the “IOR”. The formula for fixation of pay based on the fitment factor of 2.57, as contained in Rule 7(1)(A)(i) of the CCS(RP) Rules,2016, has not been modified by the CCS (Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules,2017.

7. Accordingly, pay in the Level-13 of the Pay Matrix, as provided for in the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017, shall continue to be fixed based on the fitment factor of 2.57 as already provided for in Rule 7(1) (A) (1) of CCS(RP) Rules, 2016. In case pay has been fixed in the modified Level-13 by way of fitment factor of 2.67, the same is contrary to the Rules and is liable to be rectified and excess amount recovered forthwith.

Issue No. 2 : Pay re-fixed in the modified Level-13 working out lower than the pay fixed in the earlier Level-13

8. As mentioned above, earlier Level 13 in operation before the coming into force of CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 promulgated vide notification dt. 15.6.2017, has become non-existent ab-initio and the modified Level 13 as contained in CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 is the applicable Level 13 from 1.1.2016. Therefore, the earlier Level 13 is extinct and, hence, no employee can retain the some consequent upon promulgation of CCS(Revised Pay)(Amendment) Rules, 2017.

9. As such, pay in respect of those, who are entitled to Level 13 either from 1.1.2016 or from any date later than 1.1.2016, has to be re-fixed in the modified Level 13 and the pay as earlier fixed in the earlier Level 13 gets automatically rescinded. Therefore, pay, as fixed in the modified Level 13 in terms of Rule 7 of the CCS(RP)Rules, 2016 in case of those who were drawing pay in the pre-revised pay structure in PB-4 plus Grade Pay of Rs.8700 as on 31.12.2015 or in terms of Rule 13 thereof in case of those promoted to Level 13 on or after 1.1.2016, shall now be the pay for all purposes.

10. However, a few instances have been brought to the notice of this Ministry, where pay fixed in the modified Level-13 contained in CCS (RP) (Amendment) Rules,2017 works out less than the pay fixed in the earlier Level-13 before promulgation of this amendment.

11.The pay fixed strictly in terms of the applicable provisions of CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 in the earlier Level-13 before promulgation of CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017, was the pay before the date of promulgation of the said Amendment Rules on 15.6.2017. As pay is now required to be re-fixed in the Level-13 contained in the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017, any overpayment, if taking place, consequent upon such re-fixation is not attributable to the concerned employee.

12.Accordingly, it has been decided that if the pay re-fixed strictly as per Rule 7 or Rules 13, as the case may be, of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 in the Level-13 based on the Pay Matrix contained in the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 ( as per the fitment factor of 2.57) happens to be lower than the pay as earlier fixed as per the said Rules ( fitment factor of 2.57) in the earlier Level-13, then while the pay as re-fixed shall be the pay as applicable to the concerned employee for all purposes, any recovery of over payment on account of such re-fixation during the period up to 30.6.2017, the month in which the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 has been issued, shall be waived.

13. The cases of employees who retired on or after 1.1.2016 and up to 30.6.2017 and if covered under pars 12 above, shall be processed as per Rule 70 of the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972.

Issue No. 3 – Re-exercise of option for coming over to the Revised Pay structure in case of Level 13

14. A reference has been received whether in view of the modification in the Level 13 in terms of the CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 promulgated on 15.6.2017 with effect from 1.1.2016, the date of effect of the revised pay structure contained in CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employees who are entitled to the Level 13 on 1.1.2016 may be given fresh option to come over to the revised pay structure in case of modified Level 13.

15. The matter has been considered and it has been decided that since the modification of the Level 13 as per CCS(Revised Pay) (Amendment) Rules, 2017 is a material change, the employees, who were entitled to Level 13 as on 1.1.2016 and who had already opted for the earlier Level-13 as per Rules 5 and 6 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, shall be given an opportunity for re-exercise of their option there under. Such an option may be exercised within three months from the date of issue of these orders.

16. In their application to employees belonging to the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

17. Hindi version of these orders is attached.

Simplification of procedure for payment of Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues

Simplification of procedure for payment of CGEGIS) dues – Finmin Orders
No.7(1)/EV/2016

Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

New Delhi, Dated the 17th March, 2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Simplification of procedure for payment of Central Government Employees  Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues – regarding

It has been brought to the notice of this Department that in a number of cases delay occurs in payment of Ccntral Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues, owing to missing entries, despite the fact that a provision has made for making entries of subscription for CGEGIS, recovered from pay & allowances every year in Part- VII-C of the service book.

2. In terms of para 8.1 Of the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme, 1980, as contained in this O.M. No. F.7(5)-EV/89 dated 15th May, 1989, which relates to Savings Fund of the Scheme, the total accumulation of savings together with interest thereon will be payable to the member on retirement or on cessation of his employment with the Central Government or to his family on his death while in service. The total accumulation under Savings Fund is provided for in terms of the applicable Table of Benefits pertaining to a particular year as prescribed under the relevant Orders issued by this Ministry from time to time.

3. The issue has been considered in consultation with Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare and Controller General of Accounts. It has been decided that in order to ease the process of payment of Savings Fund on account of CGEGIS at the time of retirement Of a Central Government employee, in all cases where the service of the retiring Central Government employee has been verified, payment of the accumulation under Savings Fund of CGEGIS be made without awaiting confirmation of deduction of each monthly subscription of CGEGIS, as service verification is carried out based on the monthly salary payment and the CGEGIS subscriptions are mandatory deductions from these payments.

4. All Ministries/ Departments are accordingly advised to ensure compliance of above instructions so that the dues of CGEGIS in respect Of Government servants retiring on attaining the age of superannuation are discharged with due promptness. Further, it may be ensured that Ministries/ Departments send their budget requirements for payments under CGEGIS to CCA (Finance) well in advance, preferably, at the time of RE/ BE so that the budget under this head is made on a realistic basis.

Ministry of Finance

New Delhi, December 2016

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Encouraging usage of Debit Cards among Government employees

In the recent years advancements in banking technology, progress in mobile banking and innovative technologies to facilitate digital payments have enabled large number of small denomination transactions to be handled smoothly in electronic mode. The Government of India has taken policy decisions encouraging cashless/electronic transactions.

2. In its endeavour on moving towards electronic payments, Central Government Ministries/Departments have been crediting the salary and other payments for the majority of its employees electronically, direct into the designated bank accounts of the employees. Given the progress made in banking technology, it is assumed that each employee would be in possession of a Debit/ATM card linked to his/her bank account. Ensuring and encouraging government employees to maximise the usage of Debit cards for personal related transactions instead of cash would go a long way serving with the employees serving as ‘ambassadors’ for the digital push and also motivate, encourage the general public in taking up the cause.

3. All Ministries/Departments are requested to encourage their employees to make use of Debit Cards for personal related transactions instead of cash Ministries/Departments should liaise with their accredited banks and set up special camps to facilitate obtaining of and ensure that all its employees are in possession of Debit Cards. Ministries/Departments may also issue similar advisories to their attached/subordinate offices, PSI’s, Autonomous Bodies etc.
