To

The Directors/Project Directors of ICAR Research Institutes/N RC s/Project Directorates/Bureaux

 

Subject :- Revision of Pay of Scientists of ICAR in light of scheme of revision of pay of teachers in Universities notified by MHRD vide notification dated 02.11.2017 following revision of pay scales of Central Government employees on recommendations of VIIth CPC.

 

Sir,

I am directed to state that Indian Council of Agricultural Research (lCAR) has decided to revise the pay scales of Scientists in light of scheme of revision of pay of teachers in Universities notified by MHRD vide notification No.1-7/2015-U.II(l) dated 02.11.2017 following revision of pay scales of Central Government employees on the recommendations of the VIIth CPC. as accepted by the Government of India. The revised pay scales and other provisions are as under:

 

2. Revision of Pay Scales:

2.1 The revised pay scales shall be exactly similar to the revised pay scales given as per the M/o HRD letter dated 02.11.2017 strictly in accordance with the equation between the existing pay scales in case of ICAR Scientists and the pay scales applicable to teachers under the UGC framework immediately before 01.01.2016. and no deviation is allowed.

 

2.2 For fixation of pay of Scientists in the Pay Matrix as on 01.01.2016. the existing pay (Pay in the Pay Band plus RGP) in the pre-revised structure as on 31.12.2015 shall be multiplied by a factor of 2.57. The figure so arrived at is to be located in the Research Level corresponding to the Scientists” Pay Band and RGP in the new Pay Matrix (Annexure – I).  If a Cell identical with the figure so arrived at is available in the appropriate Research Level. that Cell shall be the Revised Pay: otherwise the next higher Cell in that Research Level shall be the Revised Pay of the Scientist. If the figure arrived at in this manner is less than the first Cell in that Research Level. then the Pay shall be fixed at the first Cell of that Research Level.

 

If a situation arises whenever more than two stages are bunched together. one additional increment equal to 3% may be given for every two stages bunched. and pay fixed in the subsequent Cell in the Pay Matrix.

 

2.3 The revised pay scales are as under:

2.3.1

Revision-of-Pay-of-Scientists-of-ICAR

2.3.2

Revision-of-Pay-of-Scientists-of-ICAR

3. Implementation Date:

The date of implementation of the above revised pay shall be 1st January 2016.

 

4. Incentives for higher qualifications:

The incentive structure is built-in in the pay structure itself wherein those having M.Phil or PhD. degree or other higher qualifications will progress faster under CAS. Therefore. there shall be no incentives in the form of advance increments for obtaining the degrees of M.Phil or PhD or other higher qualifications.

 

5. Date of Increment:

5.1 The annual increments to each scientist would move up in the same Research Level. with a scientist moving from the existing Cell in the Research Level to the immediate next Cell in the same Research Level

 

5.2 There shall be two dates for grant of increments namely. 1st January and 1st July of every year. instead of existing date of 151 July. provided that a scientist shall be entitled to only one annual increment on either one of these two dates depending on the date of appointment or assessment promotion.

 

6. Fixation of Pay on Promotion:
When an individual gets a promotion. his/her new pay on promotion would be fixed in the Pay Matrix as follows:

On promotion. the scientist would be given a notional increment in his existing Research Level of Pay. by moving him/her to the next higher Cell at that level. The pay shown in this Cell would now be located in the new Research Level corresponding to the post to which he/she has been promoted. If a Cell identical with that pay is available in the new level, that Cell shall be the new pay; otherwise the next higher Cell in that level shall be the new pay of the scientist. If the pay arrived at in this manner is less than the first Cell in the new level. then the pay shall be fixed at the first Cell of that level.

 

7. Allowances for Scientists in ICAR:

As per Deptt. of Expenditure. Ministry of Finance ID Note No. 1(6)/E.III B/2017 dated 20.03.2018, revision of allowances including NPA shall not be made at present. and the same would be taken up for consideration only after allowances are revised by M/o HRD in case of teachers of Universities/Colleges under UGC framework. Therefore, all allowances will continue to be paid at the existing pay structure. as if. the pay had not been revised with effect from 01.01.2016.

 

8. Age of Superannuation:

The existing age of superannuation of ICAR scientist is 62 years and the same will continue.

9. 30% of the additional financial impact would be met by ICAR from its own resources.

 

10. An undertaking shall be taken from every employee to the effect that any excess payment made on account of incorrect fixation of pay in the revised Research Pay Level or grant of inappropriate Research Pay Level and Pay Cells or any other excess payment made shall be adjusted against the future payments due or otherwise to the beneficiary.

 

11. Appropriate action may be taken to revise the pay of the Scientists at the Institutes as per the terms and conditions laid down herein and in accordance with the instructions issued by Government of India from time to time and in consultation with the concerned Internal Finance Division/Unit.

This issues with the approval of Competent Authority after concurrence of Deptt. of Expenditure. Ministry of Finance vide ID Note No. l(6)/E.III B/2017 dated 20.03.2018.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,

Defence Accounts Department Releases Handbook on Pay & allowances of JCOs & ORs

Defence Accounts Department Releases Handbook on Pay & allowances of JCOs & ORs

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Defence

 

04-April-2018

DAD Releases Handbook on Pay & allowances of JCOs & ORs

The Defence Accounts Department is entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining the pay accounts of million plus Jawans and JCOs of Indian Army. The Pay Accounts Offices (PAOs) of this department are at the forefront of the concerted efforts that are being put in to ensure that these men get their correct dues within reasonable time frame.

An important requirement to meet the expectations of the end user and ensuring their contentment is that the JCOs/ORs understands their dues and their entitlement. If they further appreciate the processes involved in acceptance or denial of any dues, it would equip them with enough knowledge to have better awareness to contest entitlement inconsistencies, if any.

This handbook was conceptualized with the aim to provide more grasp on the rules of entitlement as well as to have complete transparency of procedures in the PAOs. This first edition contains all the procedures right from the inception stage of publishing and processing of the daily Part II orders, till the final processing and disbursement of entitlements.

The book also details the functional boundaries and constraints of PAOs. The chapters are so ordered that they lay down entitlement parameters in a user-friendly manner. Each of the chapter seeks to enlighten the JCOs/OR on the documentary and procedural requirements for processing an entitlement.

The audit and procedural requirements behind processing of Contingent Bill items, AFPP Fund claims, MACPs, transfer/deputation, leave/TD etc., are all detailed in distinct chapters of the handbook. The deductions from pay and allowances, bank account details, etc. are also elaborated in the book.

In a unique separate chapter interpretation of the Monthly Pay Slip has been elaborated. It details item-wise description of notifications provided in the Pay Slip, which, it is expected, would not only ameliorate grievances of Jawans at the inception stage but also give him confidence regarding legitimacy of the entitlements so granted. A chapter on general FAQs is also included for assistance and ready references

The book has sought to cover all the parameters of pay and allowances of JCOs/ORs, incorporating the 7th CPC entitlements as well, wherever available on the date of publication. This book in pdf format is also available on the website of PAO(OR) AMC & 11 GRRC as well as of PCDA(CC), Lucknow.

Equal basic Pension under 7th CPC – Lok Sabha Q&A

Equal basic Pension under 7th CPC – Lok Sabha Q&A

Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
LOK SABHA

UNSTARRED QUESTION No.6447
TO BE ANSWERED ON FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 2018/CHAITRA 16, 1940 (SAKA)

EQUAL BASIC PENSION UNDER SEVENTH CPC

6447: SHRI P. K. KUNHALIKUTTY
Will the Minister of FINANCE be pleased to state:

(a) whether the Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC) has recommended option-I for ensuring equal basic pension to pre – 2016 and post – 2015 pensioners retiring from similar/equal posts and stages and if so, the details thereof;

(b) whether the Government has finally not accepted that recommendation and if so, the details thereof; and

(c) the steps taken/being taken by the Government to ensure that such similarly placed pensioners get equal basic pension from 01.01.2016?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE
(SHRI P. RADHAKRISHNAN)

(a) to (c) The 7th Central Pay Commission had recommended two formulations for revision of pension of employees who retired before 01.01.2016 and the employees were given option to choose whichever formulation was beneficial. As per the first formulation, the Commission recommended for revision of pension based on notional pay arrived at by adding the number of increments an employee had earned in the appropriate level while in service. This formulation was later on examined by a Committee under the Chairmanship of Secretary, Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare.

The Committee recommended that instead of counting of increments earned in the retiring scale and applying directly to the 7th Pay Commission Pay Matrix, a more scientific and rational method would be to refix pay in each successive Pay Commission as per the formula for revision of pay right up to the 7th Pay Commission. This method of fixing notional pay and pension would benefit a larger number of pensioners as compared to the increment method which benefits only a select segment of pensioners who served for a longer period in the retiring scale without being promoted to a higher grade.

This has been accepted by the Government and appropriate orders have been issued

7th Pay Commission Reports, some question raised in lok sabha

7th Pay Commission Reports, some question raised in lok sabha

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF FINANCE
LOK SABHA

STARRED QUESTION NO: 568
ANSWERED ON: 06.04.2018

Pay Commission Reports

JOSE K. MANI
Will the Minister of

FINANCE be pleased to state:-

(a) whether the reports of successive Pay Commissions have been increasing the burden on Government finances/ exchequer in partially accepting their recommendations for increase in wages and if so, the details thereof;

(b) whether the last Pay Commission has suggested productivity linked pay hike to the deserving employees to eliminate below average or mediocre performance and if so, the details thereof;

(c) whether such periodic hikes in wages resulting from Pay Commission recommendations trigger similar demands from the State Government/public utility employees, imposing burden on already strained State finances and if so, the details thereof; and

(d) whether the Government is considering an alternative for increasing the salaries and allowances of Central Government employees and pensioners in future instead of forming Pay Commission and if so, the details thereof?

ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE
(SHRI P. RADHAKRISHNAN)

A Statement is laid on the Table of the House

Statement Annexed with the Lok Sabha Starred Question No. 568 dated 06.04.2018 raised by Shri Jose K. Mani regarding Pay Commission Reports

(a) The financial impact of the recommendations of the Central Pay Commission, as accepted by the Government, is normally more pronounced in the initial year and gradually it tapers off as the growth in the economy picks up and fiscal space is widened. While implementing the recommendations of the last Central Pay Commission, i.e., the Seventh Central Pay Commission, the Government staggered its implementation in two financial years. While the recommendations on pay and pension were implemented with effect from 01.01.2016, the recommendations in respect of allowances have been implemented with effect from 01.07.2017 after an examination by a Committee. This has moderated the financial impact of the recommendations. Moreover, unlike the previous 6th Pay Commission, which entailed substantial impact on account of arrears, the impact in the year 2016-17 on account of element of arrears of revised pay and pension on the present occasion of the 7th Central Pay Commission pertained to only 2 months of the previous financial year of 2015-16.

(b) The Seventh Central Pay Commission in Para 5.1.46 of its Report proposed withholding of annual increment in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) or regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

(c) The service conditions of employees of State Governments fall within the exclusive domain of the respective State Governments who are federally independent of the Central Government. Therefore, the concerned State Governments have to independently take a view in the matter.

(d) No such proposal is under consideration of the Government.

Subsequently, on receipt of a representation from the Staff Side, NC(JCM), the definition of what would constitute an anomaly has been revised and notified. Therefore, as per the revised scope of definition, anomaly will include the following cases;

a) Where the Official-Side and the Staff-Side are of the opinion that any recommendation is in contravention of the principle or the policy enunciated by the Seventh Central Pay Commission itself without the Commission assigning any reason;

b) Where the maximum of the Level in the Pay Matrix corresponding to the applicable Grade Pay in the Pay Band under the pre-revised structure as notified vide CCS(RP) Rules 2016, is less than the amount an employee is entitled to be fixed at, as per the formula for fixation of pay contained in the said Rules;

c) Where the Official side and the Staff Side are of the opinion that the vertical and horizontal relativities have been disturbed as a result of the 7th Central Pay Commission to give rise to anomalous situation.

4. Deputy Secretary (JCA) mentioned that a letter dated 16.08.2017 had been received from Secretary, Staff-Side proposing to discuss 15 items in the National Anomaly Committee (NAC). Subsequently, another letter dated 31.08.2017 was also received proposing 3 additional items. On examining these 18 items against the three (03) yardsticks as stated in para-3 above, it was felt that while some agenda items clearly fall within the definition of ‘anomaly’, there are a few which cannot be termed ‘anomaly’ as such, bordering more, as they are, on the side of ‘demands’. There are a few more which apparently by virtue of affecting the interests of one Department should rather be taken up at the Departmental Anomaly Committee. On sharing the findings of this Preliminary examination with the Secretary, Staff-Side, a communication was received from him suggesting inter-alia, besides giving their own reasons for retaining the same agenda – except one item – for the NAC deliberations, that a meeting be convened to discuss and finalize the items so as to to avoid delay in convening the NAC meeting.

5. The Chairman then requested the leader of the Staff-Side and other members to put across their points of view on the issue.

6. The Leader, Staff-Side, thanked the Chairman for convening the meeting at the suggestion of Secretary, Staff-Side and initiated the discussion by emphasising that the next meeting of the National Council under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary should be held urgently as more than 7 years have passed since the last such meeting was held. He referred to the background against which the JCM scheme has been institutionalized and stressed that the purpose of JCM is to avoid confrontation between the Government and its employees. He requested that the sentiments of the Staff-Side may be conveyed to the Cabinet Secretary so that the meeting of the National Council, JCM may be held without any further delay. He also suggested that the Cabinet Secretary should meet the Standing Committee of the National Council, JCM soon after the Republic Day celebrations so that the deliberations can be be held on all pending issues. The Leader, Staff-Side further stated that there are many issues arising out of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations which are still to be settled to the satisfaction of the Staff-Side. He particularly mentioned about the recommendations relating to New Pension Scheme, Minimum Pay, Fitment Formula, etc.

7. Secretary, Staff-Side also expressed similar views about lack of interaction between the Official-Side and the Staff-Side. He mentioned that the institutions of JCM machinery has become defunct and stated that the meetings of the Standing Committee and the National Council, JCM should be called without any further delay. He also mentioned that the Group of Ministers had met the staff representatives and given some assurances for favourable consideration regarding the Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula. But even after 1-1/2 years, no decision has been conveyed by the Government. He regretted that inspite of the report submitted by NPS Committee, nothing fruitful has been done for bringing new pensioners under defined and guaranteed pension scheme. He stated that based on the assurance given by the group of Ministers, the Staff Side had deferred the call for strike but now it is getting very difficult for them to control the resentments of the staff. He stressed the need for frequent interactions so that each side can appreciate the other’s views. He also mentioned that no decision has yet been conveyed on the 6th CPC related unresolved anomalies which, the Staff-Side feels, should be sent for arbitration as the Staff-Side has recorded its dissatisfaction on them.

(Action: D/o Pension & JCA Division, DoPT)

8. The Staff-Side members representing M/o Defence stated that they are on a hunger fast joining with the 4 lakhs Defence Civilian Employees to protest against the various decisions taken by Ministry of Defence against their interest. They lodged their protest aginst what they called ‘arbitary’ policy decisions made by the Government about outsourcing of jobs hitherto done in the ordince factories, converting Army Base Workshops to GOCO Model, closure of Station Workshops, Military Farms and Depots under Army Headquarters thereby rendering 31,000 Employees surplus including 9000 employees of Military Engineer Service, granting Uniform Allowance to the soldiers by stopping the practice of getting them stitched through almost 12000 Employees in 5 Ordnance Factories etc. This is against the assurance given by the Defence Ministry in the past to the Staff Side that the jobs being performed by ordnance factories would be outsourced. They also protested against the violation of the direction of Cabinet Secretary by the Ministry of Defence in that the Staff Side has not been consulted before deciding on outsourcing, closure, merger, declaring manpower surplus etc. They demanded that MoD may be directed to immediately hold discussions with the Staff Side and settle the issues in the interest of the Defence Industry and its employees

(Action: M/o Defence)

9. The Staff Side also raised the following issues:-

a) The demand of the Staff Side for extension of the date of option for switching over to 7th CPC Pay Scales from a date on which the employee got promotion/MACP is not yet settled. Necessary instructions may be issued in this regard.

(Action: Establishment Division, DoPT)

b) The Report of the NPS Committee even though submitted to the Government in August, 2017 the Staff Side is not yet given a copy of the same. The same may be given to the Staff Side and a meeting may also be held with the Staff Side by the Government before taking any decision on the recommendations of the NPS Committee.

(Action: D/o P & PW)

c) The Staff Side also pointed out what they felt arbitrariness of the decision of the Government to close down the various printing presses without even holding any discussion with the Staff Side. The employees have been asked to immediately get themselves, relived and join at faraway places. They added that assurances were given by the Cabinet Secretary at the National Council that the Government would discuss the problems faced by the staff and resolve the same in all cases when the Government decides to wind up any of its functions.

(Action: M/o Urban Development)

10. The Chairman stated that he has taken note of all the concerns expressed by the Leader, Staff-Side, Secretary Staff-Side and the other representatives of the Staff-Side. He stated that the work on finalizing the comments on the Agenda for the meeting with the National Council, JCM has been going on and another two weeks would be required to finalize the comments and thereafter the convenience of the Cabinet Secretary would be sought so that the meeting of the Standing Committee can be held in the month of February, 2018. He stated that the purpose of today’s meeting was to familiarize with the issues as well as to arrive at a mutually agreed decisions as to which of them should be taken up for discussion and settlement at the NAC so that the first meeting can be convened at the earliest. He further emphasised that the items on which the Government, has held a view different from that of the 7th CPC would not be taken up for discussion at the NAC since the Government decisions on them are well-thought-out and conscious ones. However, where there is a disagreement between what has been recommended and what the 7th CPC should have recommended as part of its policy/principles would figure in NAC discussion.

11. It was seen that there are seven (7) proposed items which clearly fall within the definition of ‘Anomaly’. At the conclusion of the discussions, the following was agreed to in respect of the remaining eleven (11) items:

Item No. Description Decision
1 Anomaly in computation of minimum wage In view of the response of Secretary, Staff-Side, the JCA Division will re-examine.
2 3% Increment in all stages In view of the response of Secretary, Staff-Side, the JCA Divison will re-examine
6 Remove Anomaly due to index rationalization In view of the response of Secretary, Staff-Side, the JCA Divison will re-examine
7 Anomaly arising from the decision to reject option No.1 in pension fixation Sent back to Staff-Side for reconsideration of its views
10 Minimum Pension The Staff-Side will take up this issue with the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare separately. This will not be treated as an anomaly.
11 Date of effect of Allowances- HRA, Transport

Allowance, CEA etc

Thil will be taken up separately as an item in the Standing Committee meeting
12. Implement the recommendation on Parity in Pay Scale between Sr. Auditors / Sr. Accountant of 1A & AD and organized Accounts with Assistant Section Officer of CSS. As this was already under examination in the Department of Personnel & Training it would not be taken up for

discussion in NAC at this stage. If it remains undecided at the later stage,

it will be included for discussion in NAC.

Stenographers in field/ subordinate offices and Assistant Section Offices and Stenographers in CSS

The Staff-Side, NC (JCM) will provide additional details
