DA from July 2016 set to increase by 6% or 7% for Pre Revised Pay (Pre-7th CPC Pay)

On the basis of All India Consumer Price Index for the period from July 2015 to April 2016 and assumed indices for May and Jun 2016, DA for Central Government Employees in Pre-revised pay (6th CPC) and DA from July after implementation of 7th Pay Commission have been estimated

DA-Pre-7th-CPC-Pay

DA from July 2016 set to increase by 6% or 7% on the basis of All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) with base year 2001=100, for Pre revised Pay (Pay prior implementation of 7th Pay Commission)

DA from July 2016 – An analysis – Labour Bureau, Govt of India has released the Consumer Price Index (IW) for the month of April 2016.

Having actual All India Consumer price index for 10 months in hand, out of AICPI-IW needed for calculation of DA, an attempt has been made here to estimate the said DA from July 2016.

This DA estimation is based on Consumer Price Index (IW) with the base year 2001=100 which is being followed presently for calculation of Dearness Allowance applicable for Central Government Employees, Defence personnel and Pensioners.

7th Pay Commission has also recommended that the same consumer price Index could be retained for granting Dearness Allowance.

Here is the extract of analysis and recommendations of 7th Pay Commission relating to Dearness Allowance

“The VICPC had recommended that the National Statistical Commission may be asked to explore the possibility of a specific survey covering government employees exclusively, so as to construct a consumption basked representative of government employees and formulate a separate index. This has, however, not been done.

Keeping in mind that the present formulation of DA has worked well over the years, and there are no demands for its alteration, the Commission recommends continuance of the existing formula and methodology for calculating the Dearness Allowance.”

Hence, it is assumed that CPI-IW with the base year 2001=100 would be followed with effect from January 2016 on implementation of 7th Pay commission report as far as Dearness Allowance is concerned.

In that case, DA from July 2016 after implementation of 7th Pay Commission has to be calculated using the following DA Calculation Formula

[ (Average of Consumer Index for the period from July -2015 to Jun-16) – (Average All India Consumer Price Index for 2015) X 100] / Average All India Consumer Price Index for 2015

Based on the above formula, after merger of DA of 125% with Basic Pay, DA from January 2016 would be calculated as 0% and Likely DA from July 2016 after implementation of 7th Pay Commission will be 2% or 3%

DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay

CPI-IW from July 2015 to April 2016

Month Actual AICPI-IW
July-2015 263
Aug-2015 264
Sep-2015 266
Oct-2015 269
Nov-2015 270
Dec-2015 269
Jan-2016 269
Feb-2016 267
Mar-2016 268
Apr-2016 271
May-2016 yet to be released
Jun-2016 yet to be released

Scenario 1: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out to be less than 6%

Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 working out to be less than 6% is very remote due to the fact that the index should be getting reduced by at least 4 points in any one of the coming two months from the previous month and further reduction of at least 3 points in the other month.

In other words index for May 2016 should be getting reduced by 4 points to 267 and also witness further reduction by 3 points to 264, for increase in DA from July 2016 less than 6%. If index for May 2016 registers not more than 3 point reduction then index for June 2016 has to reduce at least by 4 points in order get the less than 6% increase in DA from July 2016

Calculation of DA from July 2016 based on CPI(IW) from July 2015 to June 2016

DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269
+270+269+269+267+
268+271+267@+264@)-
115.76]X100/115.76
=130% (5% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016
DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+268@+264@)
-115.76]X100/115.76
=130%-125% (5% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016

Scenario 2: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out to be 6%

Even if index gets lower by 3 points during both of these months compared to previous month, viz., May 2016 registers 3 point reduction from April and further three point reduction in June 2016 compared to May 2016, increase in DA from July 2016 will be 6%.

DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+268@+265@)-115.76]
X100/115.76
=131% -125% (6% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016

We are of the opinion that increase in DA from July 2016 registering at least 6% is quite possible as chances for CPI (IW) getting reduced to less than 265 from the present level 271 in two months is very remote.

Scenario 3: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out to be 7%

If CPI (IW) gets increased at least by 2 points in any one of the coming two months and by 1 point increase in the other month compared to previous month, then DA from July 2016 will be poised for an increase of 7%.

In other words, if consumer price index for May 2016 and June 2016 witnesses at least 2 point increase and further 1 point increase respectively or vice versa, increase in DA from July 2016 is calculated to be 7%

DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+273@+274@)-115.76]
X100/115.76
=132% -125% (7% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016
DA from July 2016 =[(263+264+266+269+
270+269+269+267+
268+271+272@+273@)-115.76]
X100/115.76
=132% -125% (7% increase in DA
from July 2016)
@ Assumed CPI(IW) for May 2016 and June 2016

Considering the inflationary trend shown by 3 point increase in April 2016, this scenario may become a reality. In that case DA from July 2016 will be 7%

Scenario 4: Possibility of increase in DA from July 2016 for Pre-Revised Pay working out more than 7%

In order to get an increase in DA from July 2016 more than 7%, CPI(IW) for both May 2016 and June 2016 should witness at least 7 point increase from the present level of 271. If any one of this month registers lesser increase than 7 points then the other month has to compensate the same by registering increase of index by more than 7 points.

It is apparent that possibility for such an increase in CPI(IW) is not at all Possible. Hence we can conclude that increase in DA from July 2016 may not be more than 7%

Two Critical Point highlighted to Empowered Committee by Dorai on 7th CPC

Two Critical Point highlighted to Empowered Committee by Dorai on 7th CPC

7th-CPC-DORAI

In addition to the various genuine demands raised by the various Central Government Employees Federations/Associations with the Empowered Committee of Secretaries, I would like them to bring these 2 important crucial issues before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries for implementation:

 

1. RETENTION OF 3% INCREMENT IN VII CPC RECOMMENDATIONS IN CASE OF PROMOTION LEADS TO LOWER FINANCIAL BENEFITS BY FEW THOUSANDS THAN THE EXISTING BENEFITS UNDER 6TH CPC RECOMMENDATIONS:

 

The financial benefit would be much lower than what a government servant would be getting under VI CPC recommendation on promotion, because the existing benefit on promotion carry change in grade pay apart from 3% increase in Pay+Grade Pay. The following illustration shall show the huge difference:

 

Suppose an employee whose Pay is Rs.10400/- and the Grade pay is Rs. 2800/- totalling to Rs.13200(in the Pay band of 5200-20200), gets his next promotion to the Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- he will be entitled to the following hike in total remuneration under the existing VI CPC recommendation as a result of promotion:

 

Rs.13200 x 3% increment =Rs.400
Difference in Grade Pay from Rs.2800 to Rs.4200= Rs.1400
Total increase of increment in basic pay and Grade Pay= Rs.1800
D.A. at 125% as on 1/1/2016 on Rs.1800 = Rs.2250
HRA at 30%(assuming X city) on Rs.1800 =Rs.540
Total monetary benefit = Rs.4590/-

 

Whereas the net monetary benefit under VII CPC recommendation, as a result of promotion in the above case will be much lower than the above illustration as shown under:

 

Equivalent Basic Pay for Rs.13200 come to Rs.33900 as per pay matrix
Rs.33900 x 3% increment =Rs.1017(placed at Rs.35,400 as per pay matrix in the next level)
Total difference Rs.35400 – Rs33900 =1500
D.A. at 0% as on 1/1/2016 on Rs.1500= 0
HRA at 24%(assuming X city) on Rs.1500 =Rs.360

Total monetary benefit = Rs.1860/-only as against the existing Rs.4590/- leading to shortage of Rs. 2730/-
This is a big blunder committed by the VII Pay commission.
Therefore the increment on promotion should be atleast 5 to 6% to bring the benefit of increment on promotion to the existing level.

 

Whether increase of percentage for annual increment is considered or not, but increment of percentage for promotions definitely need to be implemented to bring the level of monetary benefit to the existing level.

 

2. NON RECOMMENDATION OF VII CPC REGARDING MERGER OF 50% OF D.A. WITH BASIC PAY WHEN D.A. CROSSES 50% IS A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT:

 

The long standing demand of the central government employees for merger of 50% D.A with basic was not implemented by the government on the excuse that the VI CPC had not made such a proposal. Even the VII CPC is totally silent about this aspect. It appears no one has demanded the same before the VII CPC for consideration.

 

It is quite surprising that such a vital issue of non-recommendation of merger of D.A with basic pay when D.A crosses 50% is not being opposed by any central government associations or pointed out by the media. Had it been recommended by the VII CPC, the government shall definitely implement the same and the benefit of hike in salary as a result of merger of D.A with basic when it cross 50%, would be so vast that no government servant would crave for timely setting up of next VIII Central Pay commission.

Merge DA with Basic this year and Defer Increments: Pay Panel Member

Merge DA with Basic this year and Defer Increments: Pay Panel Member

merge-DA-basic-pay-pay-panel

Member of the Seventh Central Pay Commission Rathin Roy has suggested that to meet its fiscal deficit target the Government should merge the basic pay and dearness allowance (DA) of central government employees in the current year and defer implementing any real increases in pay and pensions. This, the member has said, could be done by compensating those who would have to bear the burden of the deferred effect by giving them a “more generous award distributed over several years”.

“I am saying that the increment need not all be given at one go… It can be staggered and made more generous… So this could be done for pay and for pension,” Dr. Roy told The Hindu in an exclusive interview. “Now I am not competent to say whether this is politically feasible or not,” he, however, added.

Last month, the Union Cabinet set up an empowered committee of secretaries under the Cabinet Secretary for processing the recommendations of the Commission.

The pay and pension revision recommendations of the Commission are scheduled to take effect from January 1, 2016, but Dr. Roy, who is also the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy’s Director, has suggested that the implementation should be pushed to April 1.

What they should get, from April 1, 2016, is what they would get if we merge the basic pay and the DA, which is more or less what they are already getting, he said. “That will mean some increase in allowances but other than house rent allowance the burden of that [on the government budget] will not be very high.” He has also recommended that the Government defer allowances, principally the house rent allowance. “The case for that is strong because we are in the midst of fairly flat growth in consumption expenditure and rents are not going up much.”

Ahead of the presentation of Union Budget 2016-17, the Government is considering options for keeping the fiscal deficit for the next year within the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management target. The Government’s fiscal deficit in 2008-09, the year the Sixth Central Pay Commission award was implemented, doubled to 6 per cent, though not all of the increase was on account of the pay and pension hikes. Currently, Central government pay and allowances account for 1 per cent of the country’s GDP.

The Seventh Pay Commission, which submitted its report in November 2015, estimated that the total financial impact due to the hike in pay and allowances of central government employees recommended by it would be Rs 1,02,100 crore. Of this, Rs 73,650 crore will be borne by the General Budget and Rs. 28,450 crore by the Railway Budget. The Commission was set up by the UPA government in February 2014 to recommend revisions of remuneration for 48 lakh central government employees and 55 lakh pensioners.

Seeking Merger of DA and Oppose reduce the Retirement age – DPCC

Maken to sit on dharna

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken along with a large number of party workers will sit on a daylong dharna tomorrow at Jantar Mantar seeking merger of Dearness Allowance (DA) with basic pay and also to oppose the move by the BJP-led Central Government to lower the retirement age of government employees.

DPCC chief spokesperson Sharmistha Mukherjee said party workers, government employees, teachers, pensioners and others will join Maken in the dharna to press their demand for merger of DA with basic pay and also to oppose the move to lower the retirement age of government employees.

Addressing a press conference, Mukherjee said the Congress would be seeking the merger of 100 per cent DA with basic pay, which is 113 per cent as on January 1, 2015. The Congress-led UPA II government was to take a decision on merger of DA with basic pay, but due to the announcement of the general elections, it had to be deferred.

Popular News: Central Government Employees DA from July 2015 will be 119%

Two Point increase in CPI (IW) provides scope for 6% likely increase in DA payable to Central Government Employees and Pensioners from July 2015

Rewind Central Government Employees DA from July 2015 will be 119% – All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for May 2015 released by Labour Bureau – Two Point increase in AIPCI(IW)

DA from July 2015 – As estimated in our article on 30th May 2015, Dearness Allowance for Central Government Employees with effect from July 2015 will be increased by 6% thanks to two point increase in All India CPI (IW) for May 2015.

Except CPI for June-2015, all data for calculation of Dearness Allowance from July 2015 are available now.

Month Actual AICPI-IW
Jul-2014 252
Aug-2014 253
Sep-2014 253
Oct-2014 253
Nov-2014 253
Dec- 2014 253
Jan-2015 254
Feb-2015 253
Mar-2015 254
Apr-2015 256
May-2015 258
Jun-2015 To be released

We have to take the assumed value for CPI-IW only for June 2015. It is found that even for increase of 6 points in June 2015 from the existing CPI of 258, DA from July 2015 will be 119%. Only when CPI is increased to 265 from the existing level of 258, DA from July 2015 will be increased to 120%.

DA from Jul 2015 [(252+253+253+253+253+253+254+253+254+256+258+265)-115.76]*100/115.76
= 120% (7% increase in DA from July 2015)

On the lower side, we found that only when Consumer Price Index fell down to 250 i.e when CPI (IW) is getting decreased by 8 Points, Central Government Employees DA from July 2015 will be fixed at 118%.

DA from Jul 2015 [(252+253+253+253+253+253+254+253+254+256+258+250)-115.76]*100/115.76
= 118 % (5% increase in DA from July 2015)

From the above, it is clear that chances for decrease of 8 Points in CPI in a single month  or increase of 7 points in same period are very remote. So, we can very well conclude that DA from July 2015 will be 119%.

Denial of interim relief and the benefit of merger of DA with Pay must be viewed very seriously – NC JCM

Denial of interim relief and the benefit of merger of DA with Pay must be viewed very seriously – NC JCM

NATIONAL JOINT COUNCIL OF ACTION
4, State Entry Road New Delhi–110055

No.NJCA/2015

Dated: June 15, 2015

All the Members of the NJCA,

Dear Comrades,

Sub: National JCA Meeting held on 8th June

The National JCA, which met at the Staff Side Office on 8th June, 2015, took note of the fact that quite a few states are yet to hold the State Level Conventions. The meeting also noted that the strike decision taken on 28th April, 2015 has not been percolated down to the rank and file of the workers. The meeting wanted the affiliate to realize that the denial of the demand for wage revision to be effective from 01.01.2014 and the consequent denial of interim relief and the benefit of merger of DA with Pay must be viewed very seriously as the said decision will have far reaching consequence. The Government would discard the age old practice of grant of I.R. and merger of DA forever. It has decided to appeal to all the affiliates to chalk out independent programmes of actions in the months to come and to carry out the same in all seriousness so that the employees become fully aware of the possible outcome of the 7th CPC. The Chairman and Convenor of the National JCA will get in touch with those States, where the convention has not been held so far. The meeting decided to convey to members that the minimum wage computation, in the given situation would be on an imaginary basis. The National JCA was of the opinion that a meeting of all office bearers of the participating organizations must be convened at Delhi somewhere in the month of July to chalk out programmes of action to be pursued by the CGEs together. It was informed at the meeting that both Defence and Railways would be taking their strike ballot and would be concluded in the first week of October. The meeting, therefore, decided to advise the other units to chalk out progammes of action in July so that an ambience of struggle could be created. The NJCA also took note of the painful fact that despite assurances, Government was not convening the National Council and Departmental Councils and the JCM has been allowed to become defunct. The National JCA in conclusion decided to appeal to all affiliates to take concrete steps to invigorate the joint movement of the Central Government employees and meet the challenge that is likely to arise on receipt of the recommendations of the 7th CPC by creating an atmosphere of Unity, and determination to carry out the call of indefinite strike action scheduled to commence on 23rd November, 2015.

With greetings,

Bonus: Modi government to raise the salary threshold from Rs.10,000 to 15,000, ceiling limit from Rs. 3500 to 4500

Bonus: Modi government to raise the salary threshold from Rs.10,000 to 15,000, ceiling limit from Rs. 3500 to 4500

In bonus to workers, cap on salary set to be raised: Financial Express News

Several lakhs of workers in the organised sector will benefit as the Narendra Modi government is set to raise the salary threshold for mandatory bonus for workers from Rs 10,000 a month at present to Rs 15,000 and the minimum bounty from an annual Rs 3,500 now to Rs 4,500. The proposal, agreed to by employers’ associations at a recent meeting of an inter-ministerial group, would require Parliament’s approval as the Payments of Bonus Act, 1965, requires to be amended for this purpose.

While the minimum bonus is a legal liability on the firms concerned, whether or not they make a profits, these firms are also required to pay the workers a higher bonus if their “allocable surplus” exceeds the amount payable as minimum bonus, subject to a cap (20%) of the salaries.

 

If the new proposal takes affect, the maximum bonus payable by profit-making ventures would be close to Rs 11,000 as against Rs 8,400 now.

 

minimum+salary+for+bonus+minimum+annual+bonusThe salary ceiling for mandatory bonus eligibility was last fixed in 2007 and made effective retrospectively from April 1, 2006. While industry associations demanded exempting sick units from the requirement of paying bonus, trade unions have pitched for removal of the ceilings as “profits are not capped”, official sources said. The unions also asked for extending the benefit to workers under the Industrial Disputes Act, they added.

 

The revision of the bonus eligibility and the amounts is being done by factoring in the relevant price increases, the gauge used being the consumer price index-industrial workers or CPI(IW). This index stayed in the range of 6.4-12% since 2008. After hitting as high as 12% in 2010, CPI(IW) has maintained a roller-coaster ride — it eased to 8.9% in 2011 before rising to 10.9% in 2013 and dropping again to 6.4% in 2014. In the current calendar year, it has slowed almost consistently from 7.2% in January to 5.8% in April.

annual+change+in+consumer+prince+indexAn estimate is two-thirds of the 6 crore organised sector workforce in the country are eligible for the mandatory bonus given their salary levels. Analysts, however, say that actual number of beneficiaries could be less as many units practically circumvent the norm.

 

Under Section 10 of Payments of Bonus Act, “every employer (as defined in the Act) shall be bound to pay to every employee in respect of every accounting year, a minimum bonus which shall be 8.33% of the salary or wage earned by the employee during the accounting year”. All factories and establishments employing 20 or more persons are expected to pay the bonus compulsorily, provided the worker has worked in the establishment for at least 30 days. Employees in Life Insurance Corporation, seamen, dock workers and university employees are outside the Act’s ambit.

 

Although the country witnessed high inflation between 2009 and 2014, the move to raise the bonus amounts comes at a time inflation has come down (consumer price inflation is now below 5%). Consumer confidence is yet to be restored to the pre-2008-09 levels, while in recent months rural income growth has slowed.

Report of 7th CPC in 18 months, Wage Revision w.e.f. 01.01.2014 & in every 5 years, Merger of 100% DA in Basic Pay, Interim Relief for 7th CPC, Settlement of all Anomalies of 6th CPC, GDS in 7th CPC, Amendment in 7th CPC term of reference, Privatization, Outsourcing, Scrap PFRDA, Ceiling on Compassionate appointments, NAC issues etc: Record Note of meeting by DoPT

RECORD NOTE OF THE MEETING HELD ON 25TH FEBRUARY, 2015

A meeting was held on 25th February, 2015 in Conference Room No.190, North Block, New Delhi with the representatives of the Staff Side under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Personnel). A list of participants who attended the meeting is annexed.

2.At the outset, the Chairman welcomed the representatives of the Staff Side and Official Side and expressed his firm belief and conviction that all the issues/demands can be resolved through the consultative process. He also indicated that the next (47th) meeting of the National Council (JCM) is likely to be scheduled soon under the Chairmanship of Cabinet Secretary. Thereafter, the Chairman invited the Leader and Secretary of Staff Side for their opening remarks.

3. Shri M. Raghaviah, Leader of the Staff Side welcomed the new Chairman. He thanked the Chairman and conveyed the appreciation of the Staff Side for convening the meeting. He mentioned that presently JCM is almost defunct which has caused much anguish and frustration. He observed that the basic framework for which Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) has been set up is defeated if meetings are not held and no result oriented interaction takes place. He complained that even issues agreed upon do not result in appropriate orders being issued by the Government and cogent replies are not given in case of rejection of proposal.

4.While thanking the Chairman, the Secretary Staff side, Shri Shiva Gopal Mishra, stated the anguish of the Central Government Employees about communication deadlock. He also mentioned that no dialogue policy of the Official Side has left the Staff Side with no option except to agitate the issue. He further mentioned that no date has been fixed for National Anomaly Committee and that no meeting of the National Council has been fixed till date.

All the above shows that the government does not want to resolve the problems of the Central Government Employees in a peaceful manner and this is the reason that all the constituents of National Council JCM had decided for sustained struggle with massive demonstration before the Parliament on 28th April. He further hoped that, the Government will take a note and will resolve the issues raised in their Declaration.

5.It was also pointed out by other Members from Staff Side that many anomalies of 6th CPC have not been resolved and since 7th CPC has been constituted, this has become an excuse to keep the anomalies pending as they stand referred to the 7th CPC. I confrontation is to be avoided, the legitimate demands should be settled and action taken on agreed area like stepping up of pay in the matter of pay fixation anomaly. They pointed out that since meetings of the JCM are not held regularly, it gives the impression that the government is not interested to settle the issues positively and the JCM is being treated casually. This is a painful situation as even Departmental Council meetings are not taking place which leads to plethora of litigations. It was also brought out that a Memorandum was submitted earlier by Staff Side for merger of DA and interim relief in view of the erosion of the value of rupees and cost hike. Thereafter, the issues as per the Charter of Demands were taken up for discussion.

1.Effect wage revision of Central Government employees from 1.1.2014 accepting the memorandum of the staff side JCM; ensure 5-year wage revision in future; grant interim relief and merger of 100% of DA. Ensure submission of the 7th CPC report with the stipulated time frame of 18 months; include Grameen Dak Sewaks with the ambit of the 7th CPC. Settle all anomalies of the 6th CPC.

The Staff side stated that a memorandum was submitted to 7th CPC for merger of DA and Interim Relief, and the Commission has forwarded the same to the government. Now, the government must take a decision on the memorandum itself or amend the terms of reference to enable the CPC to make their recommendations on the twin issues. Staff Side also pointed out that there was no laid down periodicity rule setting up of Pay Commissions but by convention it has been done after every ten years. The Staff Side stated that the wage revision must be made every five years as is the case in the Banking and Insurance Sector and other Public Sector Undertakings. With regard to the 7th CPC recommendations, the staff side wanted these to be given effect from 01.01.2014.

Regarding Grameen Dak Sewaks, the staff side wanted the Government to amend the terms of reference of 7th CPC to include Gramen Dak Sewaks as a category of employees as the Supreme Court has declared them as holders of civil post.

It was also submitted by the Staff Side that Interim relief is not part of the TOR of CPC. However, it can be made as part of the TOR even now by the government. Staff Side was of the view that the Interim Relief should not be linked to the delay in the submission of the report by the CPC but should be construed as necessary in view of the erosion of the real value of wages on account of inflation. This was noted by the Chairman.

2.No privatization, PPP or FDI in Railways and Defence Establishments and no corporatization of postal services;

The Staff Side shown its concern on silence of the Government of India on their demand for trans discussion on FDI and PPP. Staff Side vehemently opposed 100% FDI in the Railways and 49% FDI in Defense Establishment. The Staff was advised to meet and discuss the issue with the concerned departments.

3. Non-resolving of the issues as referred by the Ministry of Railways to MoF(Exp.)

With regard to the demand for setting the anomalies of 6th CPC, the staff side submitted that the Ministry of Railways had sent certain proposals to the Department of Expenditure on which no action has been taken till date. The Grade pay based MACP has created administrative and other problems in Railways and they added that there was no cadre with the grade pay of Rs.2000 in Railways. The staff side also pointed out that the decision to hold the meeting of the NAC has not been honoured so far. The Official Side stated that the proposals of the Ministry of Railways will be sorted out between Railway Board and Department of Expenditure. The Staff Side further stated that there are several items in the NAC pending settlement. Some agenda items have not been subjected to discussion even once. The Chairman agreed to convene the meeting of NAC shortly.

4. No Ban on recruitment/creation of post.

Regarding ban on recruitment, the Official side stated that there is no ban on recruitment. They further stated that with regard to ban on creation of posts, exceptions are made for operational needs.

5. Scrap PFRDA Act and re-introduce the defined benefit statutory pension scheme.

The Staff Side submitted that the Supreme Court had declared pension as one of the fundamental rights. The Government should, therefore, retrace from its avowed position, which is detrimental to the interest of the employees and ensure that the employees recruited after 1.1.2004 is covered by the existing statutory defined benefit scheme and rescind the PFRDA Act.The recent decision of the Cabinet to allow FDI in pension fund operations has made the real intent of the PFRDA Act unambiguously clear. The FDI will facilitate the mutual fund operators to invest the funds outside India. It is clear that the decision behind the contributory pension scheme was the pressure imposed on Government and taken without consulting Staff Side and therefore it is to be opposed at all cost and with vehemence. The Govt. should not go ahead with its intention of induction of FDI in pension fund companies. The Staff Side demanded to (i) restore the old pension scheme. (ii) abolish PFRDA and amend the New Pension Scheme. The proposal from the Ministry of Railways regarding replacement of National Pension scheme (NPS) with Old Pension Scheme was sent to Ministry of Finance on 29.0.2014, which needs to be agreed to. The Department of Financial Services gave details on the scheme, asserting the comparative benefits of the contributory pension scheme, Reacting the presentation, the staff side requested that official side to make the contributory pension scheme optional and the employees might opt for the same if the new scheme is beneficial as presented by the official side. It was decided that the staff side will discuss the issue with the Department of Financial Services further.

6.No outsourcing; contractorisation, privatization of governmental functions; withdraw the proposed move to close down the Printing Presses; the publication, form store and stationery departments and Medical Stores Depots; regularize the existing daily rated/casual and contract workers and absorption of trained apprentices;

Staff Side demanded that due to the ban on creation of posts and recruitment of personnel continuing for a very long period, there was consequent strain on the existing workers and many Departmental heads had to recruit personnel on daily rated basis or as casual workers. Thus, almost 25% of the present work force in Governmental organizations are casual workers deployed to do the permanent and perennial nature of jobs, contrary to the prohibition of such unfair labour practices by the law of the land. In fifties and sixties, even the casual workers who had been employed to do the casual and non perennial jobs used to get priority for regular employment as and when vacancy for such permanent recruitment arises. Thousands of persons are now recruited as casual workers and kept as such for years together. As per information now made available on the floor of the Parliament, the number of contract workers engaged by various public sector undertakings and Governmental organizations is very large. They are paid pittance of a salary with no benefits like provident fund, DA and other compensatory allowances etc. In order to ensure that they do not get the benefit of regularization, these workers are technically discharged for a few days to be employed afresh again. The modus operandi differs from one department to another.

Staff Side demanded that privatization and corporatization must not be allowed. It was informed by official side that the meeting in the Departments of (Railways & Postal) have taken place in this matter and dialogue is continuing.

Regarding Printing Press, representative of Ministry of Urban Development stated that it was looking into it in a holistic manner and no final decision has yet been taken on privatization of printing presses.

The Ministry of Health representative said that there was no plans to close the Medical Stores Depots. A Society was being floated for better supplies of medicines. It was decided that Staff Side will have a meeting with Ministry of Health & Family Welfare/Ministry of Urban Development separately.

7.Revive the JCM functioning at all levels as an effective negotiating forum for settlement of the demands of the Central Government Employees (CGEs).

This issues was not discussed.

8.Remove the arbitrary ceiling on compassionate appointments.

The Staff Side has submitted that on the plea of a Supreme Court directive, Government introduced a 5% ceiling on the compassionate appointments. When the matter was taken up by the Staff side in the National Council the Govt. was not able to produce any such direction of the Supreme Court. Despite that, the official side refused to withdraw the said instructions limiting the appointments to 5% of the available vacancies. In one of the National Council meetings, presided over by the Cabinet Secretary solemn assurance was given to the Staff Side that the issue will be revisited in the light of the discussion, but nothing happened thereafter.It is pertinent to mention in this connection that the compassionate appointments in the Railways continue to be operated without any such ceiling. In the Department of Posts hundreds of candidates selected by Selection Committee were denied jobs. Some candidates approached the Court and obtained favorable order. But the Court detective was made applicable to only those who approached the Court. Such an assurance is being breached by the provisions of limiting such appointments to 5% of vacancies therefore must be done away with.

It was agreed that DoPT will revisit the issue.

9.Other issues were deferred for next meeting.

10. It was agreed that the pending issues on the National Anomaly Committee would also be discussed further. In the case of MACP issues, Ministry of Railways would be requested to respond to the same in consultation with DoPT and Department of Expenditure. As regards, the issue relating to stepping up of pay Department of Expenditure would be requested to respond to the issue.

11.Staff Side Members from the Ministry of Defence flagged the following issues for reconsideration by DoPT:-

(i) As per provisions of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, merger of unskilled and Semi-skilled in the Workshop Staff has taken effect from 01.01.2006. Accordingly, as per DoPT guidelines, ACP granted to the labourers (Unskilled and Semi-skilled) of Ministry of Defence may be reviewed, for which an exemption of trade test is required. The MoD recommended the case of DoPT for their approval, however, DoPT has rejected the case on the plea that the ACP, already granted, need not be reviewed since merger of the Unskilled and Semi-skilled has taken place from 01.09.2008.

(ii) Defence Civilian Employees are always paid a higher rate of Risk Allowance when compared to other Central Government Employees since they are working in highly hazardous and risky jobs. Risk Allowance rate of Defence Civilian Employees may be revised to 6th CPC pay scales.

(iii) CAT, Principal Bench and also Supreme Court have ruled that Night Duty Allowance of Defence Civilian Employees may be revised in 6th CPC pay scales. However, judgments are not implemented.

As decided in earlier JCM, the said RRs are to be relooked after seeing the outcome of one or two exams. The process is still going on. Most of the Circles have completed one round of recruitment process for direct recruitment quota, and others on their way to completing the same. Subsequently, pre-appointment formalities, trainings etc. would require to be completed in case of newly recruited officials. Therefore, Circles need time to judge the capabilities and skills of these officials and furnish proper and accurate feedback thereto to this Directorate for further consideration in the matter. Hence, time is not ripe to revisit the said RRs.

As regards RRs of Postman, open market quota of 25% has already been given to GDS.  Now, as per the existing RRs, only the unfilled vacancies, which could not be filled by the MTS/GDS, go to open market for filling up.

Releasing of due installment of Dearness Allowance

Releasing of due installment of Dearness Allowance

Releasing of installment of dearness allowance as dearness allowance to central government employees has yet not been released which is due since 01.01.2015. Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra Secretary/NC JCM staff side has written to cabinet secretary in this regard. Please read the full text in pdf format given below:-

Dated: April 4, 2015

 

The Cabinet Secretary, Cabinet Secretariat, (Government of India) Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi-110 004

Dear Sir,

Sub: Releasing of due installment of Dearness Allowance

It is an astonishing fact that the Dearness Allowance, due from 01.01.2015, to the Central Government employees, has not yet been declared by the Government of India, resulting in lots of frustration and agitation in the mind of the Central Government Employees as well as their families.

It is worthwhile to mention here that, normally Dearness Allowance used to be declared in the month of March.

We do hope, you will agree that in these days, due to escalation of prices of all the essential commodities, it has become very difficult to manage household budget.

We further hope that, to give relief to some extent to the Central Government Employees and their families, due installment of the Dearness Allowance will be released immediately.

Yours faithfully
