REMINDER – 2

To,
The Dy Secretary (CP),
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
‘B’ Wing, Sena Bhawan,
New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Seeking of Clarification regarding Option & Pay Fixation in 7th CPC.

Reference: 1. This federation’ letter of even No. dated 01.10.2016, 03.05.2017
2. MoD ID No. 11(6)/2016-D(Civ-I), Dated 07.12.2016

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the letter cited under reference (1) whereby this federation has requested to issue necessary clarification for fixation of pay in various circumstances under the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016.

In turn, vide letter cited under reference (2) it has been communicated that MoD has sent a proposal to MoD(Finance) on 05.12.2016 to seek clarification about the manner of fixation of pay through illustrations prepared by D(Civ-I).

One of the doubts is still pending and that is causing discontentment amongst the employees, which is as under:-

Point of Doubt No.3: If the pay of an employee ‘XYZ’ was Rs. 12200 in PB-1 plus 2800 GP as on 31.12.2015 and after completion of 10 yrs regular service, he would be eligible for grant of financial upgradation under MACP on 15.03.2017 in the Grade pay of 4200, kindly clarify:-

(i) Whether ‘XYZ’ may opt 7th CPC w.e.f. 15.03.2017 (date of financial upgradation) and till then (14.03.2017) he will draw his wages in the existing system of 6th CPC.

It is worth to mention here that Audit Authorities state that option is available between 01.01.2016 and the date of issue of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 only.

Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that the employees may be benefitted with the fixation of pay in correct perspective without further delay.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

Sir,

Sub:-Pay fixation to Running Staff while granting financial upgradation in the identical Grade Pay (VI CPC) under MACPS – Reckoning Special Running Staff Allowance for pay fixation-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR s letter No. IV/MACPS/Part 10, dt. 16.05.2017 on the above subject and to state that tile instructions for fixation of pay at the time of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS are contained in Para-4 of the Annexure to Board’s letter dt. 10.06.09 (RBE NoA 01/2009) which stipulates as under:-

“Benefit of pay fixation available at the time Df regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgraiation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade pay as granted under MACPS”.

In view of the above, nodal Branches for 6th  & 7th CPC viz. PC-VI and PC-VII, have been consulted. They have advised that the Additional Allowance/Special Running Staff Allowance is not reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion. As such it is not feasible to reckon the same for pay fixation purpose while granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
for Secretary/Railway Board

Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix to the staff inducted from the post of Diesel/Electric Loco Technician to the post of Assistant Loco Pilot against 50% quota vacancies-review requested.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/18 dated 01/05/2017.

With reference to the reply of Railway Board vide letter cited above, the Federation conveys as follows:-

  • It may be appreciated that because of staff representations on account of negative response of lower level administration, NFIR has chosen to reach Railway Board. The reply of Board to the Federation may not resolve the staff grievance unless and until Board sends NFIR’s letter copy to GMs etc., together with its reply copy sent to Federation also.
  • For proper appreciation, Federation encloses copy of Sr. DFM/GTL (S.C. Railway) reply to DPO/GTL (A/IG/7PCSRs/Certification dated 07/03/2017) together with copy of DRM/P/GTL O.O. No. 502/Loco-Rng/2016 dated 09/05/2016. From these papers, it could be noticed that option for pay fixation has been denied.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions to GMs etc., on the subject, duly enclosing copy of Federation’s letter and Board’s reply thereon to mitigate the problems and ensure proper implementation in order to avoid staff grievances on such matters.

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix level to the Railway employees promoted during the period 01.01.2016 to 31.12.2016.

Please refer to your letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B./Part I dated 06.01.2017, wherein it has been demanded that opportunity for revision of option for those staff promoted after the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 (i.e 28.07.2016) and also for those staff promoted between 01.01.2016 and 31.12.2016 to switch over o 7th CPC Pay Matrix from the date subsequent to date of Railway Board’s notification be provided.

2. In this context it is stated that option for switching over to 7th CPC has been circulated and clearly specified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules, 2016. Further, instructions for exercising the ,revised option in respect of officials who had Promotion/financial upgradation and had already exercised the option between the date of,effeet of recommendation (01.01.2016) and date of promulgation of RS(RP) Rules, 2Q3.6 ( 2016) has also been issued vide Board’s letter RBE No 124/2016 dated 20.10.20,16.1t, has already been notified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules and further in the option form ctrculated along with RS(RP) Rules that the employee can elect to continue on ay Aa d and Grade Pay of his substantive/officiating post until the date of his next increment  at any subsequent increment raising he pay to particular limit or from the date of his promotion/upgradation.

However, the option exercised is final and one time dispensation has been extended to those promoted between 01.01.2016 and 28.07.2016 can not be extended in other cases. Decision on permitting further revision of option once taken can not belaken unilaterally by Ministry of Railways alone and needs to be taken by Ministry of Finance as it is a general policy matter pertaining to all Government employees.

Sub: – Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure – clarifications – regarding.

Following the notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Railway Board has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. These matters have been considered by Ministry of Finance and the points of doubts are clarified as under:-

Sl. 
No.
Point of doubt Clarification
1. As per the provisions of FR 22 (I)(a)(1), the Government Servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex- cadre post or ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/appointment or from the date of next increment.Some    of  the  employees,  promoted between  01.01.2016   and the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation  on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 28th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous.

Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22 (l)(a)(1) at this stage.

Under the changed circumstances after notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employee   may   be  allowed to exercise   revised     option   for fixation   of     pay  under    FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such   revised  option shall    be  exercised  within   one month   of  issue    of   this  letter. Option so revised shall be final.
Whether employees appointed/ promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment 01.01.2016 Since, the provisions of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016, no increment Shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

Pay fixation of SCS/Non-SCS officers promoted to IAS subsequent to the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations

pay-fixation-7thCPC

Pay fixation of SCS/Non-SCS officers promoted to IAS subsequent to the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations

No.20015/2/2015-AIS-II
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension
Department of Personnel & Training
AIS-II

New Delhi, Dated the 7th April, 2017

To
THE CHIEF SECRETARIES OF ALL STATES/UTS

Subject: Pay fixation of SCS/Non-SCS officers promoted to IAS subsequent to the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations-reg.

Sir/Madam

In accordance with the provisions contained in Schedule 1 of the Indian Administrative Service (Pay) Rules, 2016, the initial pay of a promoted officer or an officer appointed by selection, as the case may be, shall be fixed after grant of an increment at the stage of the senior scale next above his actual pay provided that if such stage of pay happens to be common to different components of the Senior Scale, pay shall be fixed in the lower or the lowest component, as the case may be, of the Senior Scale.

2.The Rule 5(6) of IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016 provides for the fixation of pay of a Member of Service on promotion to Selection Grade (Level -13) of Pay Matrix by adding one increment in the Level-12 of the Pay Matrix and two additional increments in the Level 13 to which he is promoted. Rule 5 (5) of IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016 provides that the pay of a member of the Service in the Senior Time Scale shall, on promotion to the junior Administrative Grade, be fixed in Level 12 of the Pay Matrix.

3.Subsequent to the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, queries have been raised by various State Governments on the following issues:

(a) Regulation of increments on actual promotion of officers to JAG/Selection Grade when pay was fixed initially in PB-4 (GP 8700) to protect the pay drawn in the State Civil Service.

(b) Fixation of pay officers who were promoted to IAS in Senior Time Scale/Junior Administrative Grade after 01.01.2016.

4.In this regard, it is clarified in respect of para 3(a) and in view of the extant provision of Rule 5(6) of IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016, the two additional increments due to MoS inducted into the IAS and on actual promotion to the Selection grade/JAG cannot be denied due to pay being initially fixed in the Selection grade/IAG. In such cases, the State Government may kindly ensure that the pay of these officers on actual promotion to JAG/Selection Grade are re- fixed (only for the purpose of fixing pay on promotion) at Level 11/12 of the Pay Matrix as per current pay drawn and given one increment in the junior Scale and thereafter two additional increments shall be allowed at the Level to which the officer has been promoted.

5.In respect of para 3(b), the initial pay of an officer inducted into the IAS shall be fixed in he respective level of the Senior Scale i.e. Level 11, 12 or 13 based on the year of allotment in the IAS. However, the pay drawn in the state civil services will be protected in the concerned Level. An illustration of pay fixation of an officer inducted in IAS is given below:

Mr. X who is drawing pay at Rs, 48920 (Rs.40220 (pay in the pay band + Rs.8700 (GP) is inducted.to IAS on 04.03.2016. He is allotted 2010 batch. The pay on induction to IAS would be fixed as under:

S.No. Status Pay fixation
1 Last Pay drawn by the officer in the State as on 04.03.2016) Rs.48920 (Rs.40220 (pay in the pay band + Rs.8700 GP
2 Date of promotion in IAS 04.03.2016
3 Year of allotment 2010
4 Pay fixation in IAS as on (04.03.2016) as per 7th CPC [The officer has the option either to get the pay fixed from the date of promotion or from the date of annual increment). Rs.48920 X 2.57 =125725. Equivalent stage available at Level 11 is 126300/-. After grant of one increment his pay is fixed at 130100/- (Since the officer has been allotted 2010 batch he is eligible for pay fixation at Senior Time Scale (Level 11 The pay of the officer has also been simultaneously protected.
5 Pay fixed in IAS Rs.130100 at Level 11 in the Pay Matrix
6 Date of next increment 01.01.2017 or 01.07.2017 ( as per the option exercised by the officer in terms of Rule 6 of IAS Pay Rules, 2016.

6.The Rule 6 of IAS (Pay) Rule, 2016 provides for exercise of option of fixation of pay by the officers as under:

“….any member of Service may opt to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next of any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in that pay structure  …further in cases where a member of the Service has been placed in a higher scale between the lst Ianuary, 2016 and the date of notification of these rules on account of promotion or upgradation, the member of Service may opt to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion or upgradation, as the case may be.”

7.All the State Governments are requested to adhere/comply with the aforesaid instructions while fixing the pay of promoted IAS officers.

8.This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Yours faithfully,

7th CPC Pay Matrix Anomaly: NFIR writes to Railway Board

7th CPC Pay Matrix Anomaly: NFIR writes to Railway Board

No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B./part I

Dated: 06/03/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix – Pay fixation to staff – Anomaly resulting less pay to senior in comparison with junior – reg.
Ref: Notification issued by the Railway Ministry vide RBE No.90/2016 – Rule 10(2) therof.

NFIR desires to bring to the notice of the Railway Board, the anomalous situation arisen pursuant to sub-para (2) of Rule 10 of the Notification issued by the Railway Board vide RBE No.90/2016. A case on North Western Railway is cited below as example:-

  • Mr.X and Y have been working as SSE in the Loco Workshop, Ajmer in GP 4600/- (Level 7). Mr. X is senior to Mr. Y.
  • Both X & Y have been drawing pay equal to Rs.60,400/- on 1st July 2016. Both the employees are due for financial upgradation benefit under MACPS in the month of February 2017.
  • Mr.X has been given financial upgradation under MACPS and his pay when fixed in Level 8 comes to Rs.62,200/-. His next increment is due on 1st January 2018 when his pay will raise to 64,100/-.
  • Mr.Y has been denied financial upgradation due to ‘Good ACR’ for the year 2014. His pay on lst July 2017 will be Rs. 62,200/- in Level 7 which will be equal to Mr. Y’s pay as on 1st July 2017.
  • When Mr.Y becomes fit for financial upgradation under MACPS sometime between July and December 2017, then his pay will be 64,100/- in Level 8 which will be equal to the pay of Mr.X in January 2018. Subsequently, when Mr.Y will be given next increment in January 2019 ultimately Mr. X will lag behind by six months despite being senior.

The position mentioned above clearly reveals that senior has been put to loss by way of drop in emoluments. This needs to be remedied to do justice to senior employees.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to examine the case in the light of above illustration and take necessary action for rendering justice to senior staff in whose case, the drop in emoluments has taken place. Federation may also be apprised of Board’s response early.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of recommendations of VI CPC – merger of grades-revised classification and mode of filling up of non-gazetted posts-scheme for filling up vacancies after 31/12/2015-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No. II/2/Part VII dated 19/01/2016.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2008/PM1/15 dated 09/02/2016.

Pursuant to Federation’s communication vide letter of even number dated 19/01/2016 on the subject wherein Board was requested to issue instructions extending the validity of the revised classification beyond 31/12/2015, the Railway Board vide letter dated 09/02/2016 though extended the currency of the instructions, but however a restriction has been clamped that the said extension shall be upto 31/12/2016. The said extension period has again expired on 31/12/2016, consequently the processing of promotion of staff has been halted on Zonal Railways etc., from 1st January 2017 onwards.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to extend the scheme beyond 31/12/2016 for ensuring promotions against vacancies.

Federation may be kept advised of the action taken.

Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300

Dear Sir,
Sub: Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300-reg.

Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 24/26-08-2016 addressed to Railway Board.

Federation vide its letter of even number dated 24/26-08-2016 brought to the notice of Railway Board a case non-fixation of pay of staff working in Pay Band-1S/Rs. 4440-7440 in whose favour no orders have been passed for fixation of these staff pursuant to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC. For the purpose the Federation cited Railway Board’s notification issued under RBE No. 90/2016 where there are no instructions for these staff.

In addition to above, Federation proposed to the Board to consider the skills and service experience gained by the staff, presently in- 1S, for considering placement in Level-I (Rs. 18000/-) of the

7th CPC Pay Matrix. Federation feels sad to point out that thereafter a period of over three months has passed there is no feed back with the result the employees have been made to suffer unnecessarily. A copy of Federation’s letter dated 24/26-08-2016 is enclosed for reference.

NFIR, thereofore, requests the Railway Board once again to take further necessary action and advise to the Federation only.

Yours faithfully,

Merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way – Pay fixation

The General Secretary, NFIR,

New Delhi-55.

Sir,
Sub: Merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way – Pay fixation.
Ref: NFIR’s letter no. I/2/Part III dated 12-09-2016 & PNM/NFIR item no.53/2016.

With reference to NFIR’s letter ibid, the issue of granting of benefit of pay fixation in the case of enbloc merger of Sr.P.Way Supervisors with JE/P. Way was re-examined in detail in consultation with Finance Directorate and it was observed that due to the following reasons, pay fixation benefit under rule 1313(i) of Establishment Code Vol.II may not be allowed in the case of enbloc merger of Sr.PWS to JE/P.Way.

(i) As per rule 1313 (FR22)(i) (a)(1) R-II, pay fixation benefit under this rule is allowed subject to the fulfillment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant recruitment Rules. This conditions is not fulfilled during enbloc merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way.

(ii) While phasing out the category of PWS in pre-revised scale Rs. 4500-7000 + Rs. 100 (spl.allowance) and introduction of new category of Sr.PWS in pre-revised pay scale Rs.5000-8000 vide Board’s letter dated 22-03-2007, pay fixation benefit under Rule 1313 (FR 22) (I) (a) (1) R-II has already been given to the P.Way Supervisors.

(iii) As Sr.PWSs and JE/P Ways were in the identical scale PB-2, Grade Pay Rs. 4200, while issuing orders for enbloc merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way, both the posts (Sr.PWS & JE/P.Way) were deemed to be equal.

Further, it is stated that as per instructions laid down in Board’s letter no. PC-VI/2011/IC/1 dated 12-09-2013, benefit of pay fixation under Rule 13 of RSRP Rules-2008 is only allowed to the Sr.PWS who were promoted as JE/P.Way betweeen the period from 01-01-2006 to 02-07-2013 (prior to merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way).

(As per mailing list)

Sub:- Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised Pay structure – clarifications – regarding.

Following the notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Railway Board has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. These matters have been considered by Ministry of Finance and the paints of doubts are clarified as under:-

Sl.No. Point of doubt Clarification
1 As per the provisions of FR 22 (l)(a)(1), the Government Servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex- cadre post or ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/appointment or from the date of next increment.Some of the employees, promoted between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 28th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous.

Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22(I)(a)(1) at this stage.

Whether employees appointed/promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016

Under the changed circumstances after notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employee may be allowed to exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such revised option shall be exercised’ within one month of issue of this letter. Option so revised shall be final.Since, the provisions of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016, no increment shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation : Confederation

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation :  Confederation

Ex Service men Pay Fixation : Confederation writes to Hon’ble Minister of State, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension

Ref: CONF/GENL/Ex service men/2016 19

Dated : 28.09.2016

To,
Dr. Jitendra Singh
Hon’ble Minister of State Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension
102, North Block
New Delhi : 110001

Respected Sir,
Sub: : Ex Service men pay fixation : intervention requested.

1. It is submitted that pay fixation of re employed Ex Service men who held rank below commissioned officer/Group A at the time of their retirement is not carried out in many departments (Eg; Postal department) as per Government orders issued from time due to misinterpretation/wrong classification by the administrative authorities. The re employed Ex Servicemen are being deprived of their due by the controlling authorities.

2. Department of Personnel & Training under Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension is the nodal authority in the subject matter. Presently CCS (Fixation of Pay of re employed Pensioners) orders 1986, amended from time to time, which act as the basic guideline, is required to be amended to bring clarity and parity for whole class of Ex servicemen. The pay of the re employed Ex Commissioned officers/Group ‘A’ is fixed at a higher stage due to their past service benefit but in the case of re employed Ex Servicemen who held rank below commissioned officers, their pay is fixed at minimum of pay scale of re employed post which is denial of natural justice and violation of fundamental rights, particularly right to equality, enshrined in our constitution, as discrimination arises out of such partial provisions. The provision contained in pay fixation basically are welfare measure to support the class of Ex Servicemen as a whole. However, this discrimination in pay fixation had added to their woes.

3. Detailed statement of case for regularization/streamlining of pay fixation of re employed Ex Servicemen are enclosed herewith for your kind consideration and issue of necessary guidelines in favour of veteran Warries of our country who sacrificed their vital years for India and still engaged themselves in nation building.

STATEMENT OF CASE FOR REGULARISATION OF PAY FIXATION OF RE EMPLOYED EX SERVICEMEN (PERSONNEL BELOW OFFICER RANK) IN CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS/ MINISTRIES

INTRODUCTION

Government of India provides reemployment opportunities to Ex Servicemen Officers/Other Ranks of Indian Armed Forces in various Departments/Ministries, Public Sector Organizations & Autonomous Bodies as a rehabilitation measure due to their compulsory retirement at early age to keep the forces young. According to CCS (Fixation of Pay of reemployed Pensioners) Orders 1986 amended from time to time by DOP&T the Reemployed Officers are allowed to draw a higher stage of initial pay in consideration with their pre retirement pay on reemployment in such Government organizations. In case of other ranks/PBOR (Jawans/NCOs/JCOs) the Government departments and Ministries have allowed to draw only minimum/entry pay of re employed post as applicable to fresh recruit. Public Sector organizations viz., Nationalised Banks, LIC, NIC and other PSUs have allowed to draw the higher stage of initial pay (at the stage of pre retirement pay) to reemployed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs/NCOs) as mentioned above.

DETAILED JUSTIFICATION OF THE CASE

Department of Posts and some other departments has not agreed to allow the higher initial pay on re employment in consideration with pre retirement pay to re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer rank of the Armed Forces. Most of the Ex servicemen belong to PBOR category retired (discharged) from service at the age of 35 : 40 years to keep the forces young. To ensure the minimum survival support earning, Government of India introduced a higher stage of pay in several manners to the reemployed ex servicemen from time to time. According to Dept of P&T OM No 3/1/86 Estt (P II) dated 31 July 1986 the earlier orders relating to fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners was scattered in a number of OM issued by Ministry of finance from time to time. Dept. of P&T consolidated all these orders and issued fresh guidelines in a single order viz., CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. The pay fixation procedure mentioned in such earlier

OMs (Prior to 1986) issued by Ministry of Finance as under: :

1) According to Ministry of Finance, Dept of Expenditure OM No 8(34) Estt III/57 dated 25 Nov 1958 pay of the re employed pensioners will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of the re employed post. In cases where it is felt that fixation of pay of re employed officers at the minimum of pay scale will cause undue hardship the pay may be fixed at a higher stage by allowing one increment for each year of service the officer has rendered before retirement in a post not lower than that he reemployed. In other words, if the amount of pay plus pension is less than the last pay drawn before retirement from previous service, it will be treated as undue hardship.

2) In case of reemployed pensioner who retired before attaining the age of 55 years, Rs 125/ was ignored from the pension for the purpose of pay fixation vide Ministry of finance OM No F.4(3)E III/82 dated 13 December 1978.

3) According to Ministry of Finance OM No F.4(3) E.III/82 dated 13 Dec 1983 the entire pension of the reemployed pensioners who held below Group A post/ Commissioned officer rank and retired before attaining the age of 55 years will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. In this regard Para 4(d) (i) of CCS (Fixation of pay or reemployed pensioners) order 1986, amended from time to time may be referred.

Hence in the cases where pay plus Non Ignorable Portion of Pension is less than last pay drawn (LPD) before retirement, it will be treated as undue hardship. In case of Ex : Personnel below Commissioned officer /Group ‘A’ Officer Rank, the non ignorable part of pension is zero. So it may be described such a manner that, if the pay of re employed post is less than last pay drawn in such cases advance increments will be granted as instructions given in Ministry of Finance OM dated 25 November 1958. Hence the pay of re employed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs) will be fixed at higher stage.

4) Now the provisions of CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986, and its application is as under: :

(i) In case of Reemployed officers who held Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement: : According to Para 4(d)(ii) such re employed officer who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years, first Rs 4000/ of his pension only will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. According to Para 4(b) (ii) Pay of such re employed officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement as a part of pension is only ignored for the purpose of pay fixation and remaining part of pension will be deducted from pay so fixed at the last pay drawn. As a result, pay of such officer is fixed at much higher than the minimum pay of re employed post. Illustration as mentioned below: :

Colonel A Retired at the age of 54 Years and re employed as Section Officer [Gp A Gazetted post in the pay scale of (Rs 15600 (BP) + Rs 5400 (Grade Pay)] His other details are as under: :

Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 15600 + Rs 5400 = Rs 21000

Last pay drawn in previous service = Rs 54000 (BP) + Rs 8700 (GP) + Rs 6000 (MSP)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 68700/
Pensioned sanctioned = Rs 34350/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: :

Step : I : Determination of last pay drawn = Rs 68700
Step : II : Determination of non ignorable = Rs 34350 : Rs 4000 = Rs 30350 part of his pension
Step : III : Deduction of non ignorable = Rs 68700 : Rs 30350 = Rs 38350 Part of pension from
Last Pay Drawn
Step : IV : Fixation of Initial pay = Rs 38350

(In addition to pay so fixed above, he shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. As explained in para 4(C) of CCS (RP) rules, 2008 vide OM 3/19/2009 dated 5th April 2010.)

From above it is notable that the minimum pay of the re employed post is Rs 21,000/ and the pay fixed at Rs 38350/ hence the pay has been fixed at the higher stage due to consideration of his pre retirement pay. It is justified as the pay of an experienced person can never be equal to a fresh recruit, but the same justification should be considered for reemployed Ex Non Commissioned officer cadre (JCOs/Jawans) also.

In case of Reemployed Ex servicemen who held rank below Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement and retired before attaining the age of 55 years: : According to Para 4(d) (i) such re employed ex servicemen who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years his entire pension will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation.

According to Para 4(b) (i) Pay of such re employed ex servicemen will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of reemployed post. Pre retirement pay will not be considered for his pay fixation. Treatment of undue hardship caused due to fixation of minimum pay is neglected here.

Illustration as mentioned below: :

Sepoy ABC (MACP I) Retired at the age of 36 Years and reemployed as Social Security Assistant in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230

His other details are as under: :
Last pay drawn = Rs 9550 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 14250/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 7125/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: :

Step I Determination of Initial pay of re employed post = Rs 8230
Step II Fixation of Initial pay on re employment = Rs 8230

From above it is notable that the re employed ex servicemen is allowed to draw only minimum pay of reemployed post which is Rs 8200/ much less than his last pay drawn Rs14250/ before retirement, hence the undue hardship arises as his pre retirement pay has been neglected. The gap will widen in case we take example of Nb Subedar of Army or a Sergeant of Air force who gets X pay additionally.

From the illustration (i) and (ii) it is revealed that the CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 is not a consolidation of provisions of OM issued by Ministry of finance rather it is an order issued by Government of India which intended to give benefit to Ex Commissioned officers and deprive the Ex servicemen (PBOR). This Order was formulated to serve the interests of Ex Group ‘A’ Officers/Commissioned Officer category only and discriminated against the PBOR/Other Ranks in terms of Right to equality enshrined in our Constitution of India. The service conditions were equally harsher to whole class of ex servicemen including all ranks of Armed Forces; in fact more harsh if service privileges and promotions are to be considered separately.

5. In addition to above, according to Para 2 of DOPT OM No 3/13/2008/Estt/Pay II dated 11 Nov 2008 it is clear that the pay of re employed ex servicemen will be fixed according to rule 7 of CCS RP Rules 2008 with adherence to CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Rules 1986 amended from time to time. The term minimum pay refers here the pay last drawn by the reemployed ex servicemen before retirement (substantive pay) and the pay should be fixed in the pay structure of re employed post i.e. the grade pay of re employed post only admissible in such case. Total pay should be equal to the last pay drawn by the pensioner. In this regard your attention is also invited to para 3(v) of DOPT OM No 3/19/2009 Estt (Pay II) dated 05 April 2010 where it is clearly instructed that the pay of re employed personnel/officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn. In this regard Verdict of Honourable Supreme Court dt 08.11.1996 in the case of Director General of India Posts Vs B Ravindran may be referred.

6. Pay of Re Employed Officers is fixed at higher stage due to formula applied as prescribed in the CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. Whereas the interest of personnel below officer rank was totally neglected and their pay is fixed at the minimum of pay scale only which is contrary to natural injustice and violation of Right to equality enshrined in the Constitution of India as discrimination arises.

7. Public Sector Banks, LIC, NIC and PSUs are still allowed the higher stage of initial pay to Ex PBOR with reference to the Government orders (DOP&T OM dated 05.04.2010). Circular of Indian Banks Association in this regard may be referred to. Due to misinterpretation/ambiguous language of Government orders issued on the subject matter, Central Government departments does not agree to re fix the pay of re employed ex servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned in para 4 above. The re employed Ex serviceman belonging to PBOR category, are allowed to get their pay fixed only at the minimum/entry pay of re employed post which is illogical and unlawful decision in terms of violation of constitutional provisions of fundamental rights. As a result, a large number of ex servicemen are suffering from financial hardship besides moral depression.

8. Quoting the same authority /Govt. orders issued by DOP&T the PSU organizations and Nationalised Banks (Govt. Undertakings) have facilitated the pay fixation to the ex servicemen (PBOR) to fix the pay at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement but Central Government departments still not agreed to provide the entitlements to the re employed ex soldiers due to ambiguous provisions. They cite different reasons that PSUs are following different pay system etc. forgetting that PSUs derive the authority from the same Central government, So, how can there be two sets of rules for same category by same employer (Central Government).

REMEDIAL ACTION REQUIRED TO BE TAKEN

9. In view of the above it is requested that, your good office should weed out the actual disparity arising out of incomplete and discriminatory orders issued by the DOP&T vide CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 (amended from time to time) and issue necessary amendment/fresh order in favour of the Ex Servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned below: :

For: : Para 4(b)(i)

Where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008.

It should be read as under (DRAFT PROPOSAL): : Para 4(b)(i) where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. In cases of reemployed ex servicemen where pension is fully ignored and pay fixed at minimum/entry
pay of reemployed post which is less than his pay last drawn in the Armed forces will be treated as undue hardship and his pay required to be fixed at a higher stage by allowing advance increments until his pay reaches at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement to prevent undue hardship. In addition, he will be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit.

Illustration: Sergeant/Havildar (any non commissioned rank) ABC Retired before the age of 55 Years and reemployed in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP)
Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230
Last pay drawn by him = Rs 12000 (BP) + Rs 2800 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay) + GCB 240 + X pay 1400
Total pay last drawn = Rs 18740/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 9370/
Pay fixation on his reemployment: :
Step : I Determination of minimum pay = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = 8230 (minimum pay of reemployed post)
Step : II Fixation of total pay = Rs 18740/ (Last pay drawn) by allowing advance increment).
Step : III Manner of Re fixation of pay = Rs 16840 (Band Pay) + 2400 (Grade Pay of re employed post)

(This order should be applicable to all re employed ex servicemen irrespective of their date of retirement and date of re employment)

CONCLUSION

10. In the light of the above, it is requested that the fresh orders/amendments be issued free from any scope of misinterpretation/ ambiguity, clearly mentioning the feasibility of fixation of pay of the re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer ranks, at the same stage as the last pay drawn before retirement, ignoring entire portion of pension since the pension is miniscule and not even enough to live on rent in a city. In addition, they shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to them and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. Thousands of re employed soldiers suffering from acute financial hardship due to very low earning even after re employed. They would get relief with the right approach and initiative if taken at your end at the earliest. This will also save the Government’s expenditure and precious time of officers on litigations that are either pending or may be initiated in various courts.

  • The Fitment table issued by the Railway Board vide letter No. PC-VI/2008/1/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 was very clear, consequently correct pay fixation was done in favour of Running Staff with effect from 01/01/2006.
    This time, no fitment table has been issued resulting disappointment among Loco and Traffic Running Staff in Railways.
  •  A statement showing the revised pay fixation on the 7th CPC Pay Matrices is enclosed. The statement shows that 14.29% hike is not ensured.
  •  According to the notification issued by Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure vide Para 12 of Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July 2016, while revising the Pay of Running Staff it should be ensured that actual raise in Pay at the time of initial fixation of pay should be 14.29% as recommended by the 7th CPC. It is however, disappointing to note that the Railway Board’s decision communicated vide letter No. PC-VII/2016/ RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (Annexure C) has not ensured Pay raise of 14.29%, consequently each Running Staff is deprived of more than Rs. 2000 p.m.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to review and ensure pay raise of not less than 14.29% for the Running Staff while revising the pay in the 7th CPC Pay Matrices. Federation also urges the Railway Board to issue the revised fitment table duly ensuring 14.29% hike as was done on 12th September 2008 when 6th CPC Grade Pay/Pay Band was given effect from 01/01/2006.

Yours faithfully,

Central Secretariat employees seek pay parity

A delegation of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service (CSSS) Association, called on the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for parity in pay fixation and related issues.

The delegation led by Shri Raj Kishore Singh submitted a memorandum listing details of their long pending issues and suggesting options to resolve the same. According to the memorandum, while applying Rule 8 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008, the pay of direct recruits and new entrants is fixed at higher stage, when compared to the existing employees who were promoted in the same grade. This leads to discrimination in the fixation of pay of Personal Assistants of one category vis-à-vis the other category.

The memorandum also stated that the issue has been lingering on in the National Anomaly Committee for the last four years, but it has not been addressed. It pleaded that the mechanism of grant of “stepping up” to certain employees should be provided only in exceptional cases and not resorted to as a routine matter to sort out discrepancies which may affect a large number of employees.

Members of the delegation suggested that their issue can be addressed by incorporating a new provision in the Rules wherein if a promotee’s pay is getting fixed at a stage lower than that of a direct recruit, then the pay of the promotee should be fixed at the same stage as that of a direct recruit / new entrant. The other option suggested by them was to amend the CCS (RP) Rules so as to appropriately fix the pay in the Pay Band for a particular post carrying a specific Grade Pay.

Dr Jitendra Singh gave a sympathetic hearing to the members of delegation and assured them that DoPT will try to sort out their issue to the maximum extent possible.

Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff

Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
3, CHELMSFORD ROAD, NEW DELHI – 110 055
Affiliated to :
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF)

No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B.

Dated: 04/08/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff-reg.

Ref: (i)NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 13/07/2016.
(ii) Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/0811016 (RBE No. 93/2016).

The Federation vide its letter dated 13/07/2016 requested the Railway Board that in view of 30% pay element of Running Staff needed to be taken for arriving at the “multiplier factor”, it was suggested to maintain the same at “3” instead of “2.57”. Federation is however disappointed to note that the Railway Board instead of following the simple procedure has complicated and mutilated the pay fixation formula/procedure of Running Staff as per illustration given in Annexure ‘C’ of Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (RBE No. 93/2016).

In this connection, the Federation brings to the notice of the Railway Board that in the Resolution circulated by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) vide No. 1-2/2016-IC on 25th July 2016 in Para 12, it has been mentioned that in respect of Railway employees to whom Running Allowance is admissible, it will be ensured that the actual rise in pay at the time of initial fixation is about 14.29% as recommended by the Pay Commission. Federation feels sad to convey that the said decision of the Ministry of Finance has not been complied with by the Railway Ministry particularly in respect of Running Staff.

In case of Running Staff with Rs.1000/- Basic Pay, he will get Dearness Allowance Rs.1,625/-, thus, the total would be Rs.2,625/-. In terms of Gazette Para 12, minimum benefit 14.29% should be given to Running Staff. 14.29% of Rs.2,625/- is Rs.375/-. Thus Basic Pay + Dearness Allowance + Minimum Guaranteed Benefit = 1000 + 1625 + 375 = Rs.3,000/-. From this, it is clear that the Running Staff having Basic Pay of Rs.1000/- should be fixed at Rs.3000/-. But in the illustration given in RBE 93/2016, Running Staff with Basic Pay of Rs.19,930/- is fixed at Rs.58,694/-, which works out 12.19% which is clear violation of Para 12 of Gazette Notification.

In view of the above, the Annexure of Board’s letter dated 02/08/2016 is needed to be redrawn to ensure justice to the Running Staff. NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above points and issue modification immediately duly endorsing copy to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
