Restoration of -1S pay scale – Treatment of Mutual Transfer from one railway to other as “inter- division transfer”- Brief of today’s meeting with Cabinet Secretary

Issue of restoration of -1S Pay Scale in 7th CPC &  treatment of mutual transfer in Railways have been resolved: AIRF

A.I.R.F.

All India Railwaymen’s Federation

No. AIRF/24(C)

Dated : September 6, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!

Sub: (i)Restoration of -1S pay scale

           (ii) Treatment of Mutual Transfer from one railway to other as “inter- division transfer”

           (iii) Brief of today’s meeting with Cabinet Secretary

Two very important issues, being persuaded by AIRF at the Railway Board level, have been resolved, one is -1S grade, which had been abolished by the VII CPC, has been restored, and the other issue regarding mutual transfer from one railway to other will be treated as inter-division transfer and need not to take NOC from the Zonal Railway Headquarters. Divisions at their own level will issue NOC, lot of time consumed for this purpose will be saved.

Comrades! Today I met the Cabinet Secretary (Government of India) and raised the issue of “Very Good” benchmark along with other issues of National Pension System (NPS), Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula and non-holding of JCM Meetings.

The Cabinet Secretary’s views were positive and he stated that he has already communicated to Chairman Railway Board and Secretary (DoP&T) that benchmark for MACPS cannot be more than the benchmark prevalent for promotion/ selection.

He also stated that the issue of National Pension System (NPS) is under active consideration of the Government of India and he will try to derive the best formula to resolve the problems arrived out of NPS

With Fraternal Greetings
Comradely yours

General Secretary

No. II/6/Part 7

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Filling up 50% of DR Quota vacancies through GDCE – Eligibility to staff in same Grade Pay/Pay Scale-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-92/PM2/ 16 dated 20/08/1993.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2001/PM2/ 12 dated 21/01/2002.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-201 1/PM1/2 dated 12/09/2014
16/09/2014.

The extant instructions provide opportunity to the staff who fulfill the conditions of educational qualification etc., laid down for direct recruitment, to appear for GDCE against 50% DR Quota vacancies for pursuing their career. The policy decision of Railway Board Vide letters cited under reference does not give opportunity to the staff of same Grade Pay/Pay Scale to apply for GDCE and face examination for the same Grade Pay/Pay Scale post as the provision allows only those in the lower Grade Pay/Pay Matrices Level.

The above subject was also discussed informally with the Director General (Personnel) on 26th May 2017.

NFIR is of the view that the staff of the same Grade Pay/Pay Matrices should also be made eligible to volunteer and appear for GDCE as is allowed in the case of those working in the lower Grade Pay/Pay Matrix Level. NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly review the extant instructions and modify the same to facilitate those who are in the same Grade Pay avail the opportunity of GDCE. It is also requested that GDCE be made as a regular scheme for filling 50% DR Quota vacancies annually by the Zonal Railways etc., to facilitate talented and highly educated staff to avail the scheme for improving their career.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

7th Central Pay Commission recommendations- Submission to the empowered Committee Secretaries – BPS

7th Central Pay Commission recommendations- Submission to the empowered Committee Secretaries – BPS

BPS-7th-pay-commission

BHARAT PENSIONERS’ SAMAJ

No SG/BPS/CPC/16/11

Dated 02.06.2016

To
Shri Pradeep Kumar Sinha,
Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India,
Rashtrapathi Bhawan Annexe,
New Delhi-110001.

Respected Sir,

Sub: VII Central Pay Commission recommendations-
Submission to the empowered Committee Secretaries- reg.

1. Bharat Pensioners Samaj(BPS) Federation of pensioners’ associations, a conglomerate of over 628 pensioners’ organizations as an accredited Federation under the Government of India, had appealed to the Secretary, Ministry of personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, on 16.2.2016 during the meeting on Aadhar seeding to hold a meeting of Pensioners Associations to discuss 7th CPS pension related recommendations, though he had agreed to hold such a meeting but it did not materialize.

2. Now BPS has come to know through NJCA News letter dated 27.5.2016 issued after their meeting with you on 26.5.2016that the Department of Pension is opposed to the first option recommended by the 7th CPC to bring about the parity with the past pensioners, as they consider it to be infeasible and impracticable (due to the non-availability of the requisite records)

3. It is hard to believe, how a department meant for the welfare of pensioners which helped pensioners to get better deal in earlier pay commissions could arrive at such a damaging and misleading decision without even consulting the stake holders.

4. Sir, Service record is a permanent one and if it to be destroyed, proper permission from the Competent Authority is to be obtained. In any case, service record of pensioners can always be reconstructed taking the details from various sources available with the department and the material collected from the Pensioner. This has been done in the past while implementing parity enunciated by fifth CPC and even while implementing modified parity of 6th CPC. It is also being done now implementing OROP. In this regard Your kind attention is also drawn to recent Bombay High court Nagpur judgement dated 09.03.2015 in case of Smt. Saija v. General Manager, Central Railway O.A.No. 2131 of 2011 (Bombay Bench at Nagpur)

Undersigned in the capacity of Secy. Genl ‘Bharat Pensioners Samaj’ request you to takean independent decision in view of submission in Para 4 above to save pensioners/family pensioners from unprecedented permanent damage by a department meant for their welfare.

Thanking you in anticipation

With regards
Yours faithfully,

Meanwhile, the group of secretaries headed by Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha is all set to meet on June 11 to give final shape to the changes on 7th Pay Commission recommendation.

Government in January set up a high-powered panel headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries will function as a Screening Committee to process the recommendations with regard to all relevant factors of the Commission in an expeditious detailed and holistic fashion.

The government had earlier stated that implementation of new pay scales recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore, or 0.7 percent of GDP, on the exchequer in 2016-17.

Expected Pay Scale and Grade Pay of Gujarat ITI Supervisor Instructor in 7th Pay Commission

Expected Pay Scale and Grade Pay of Gujarat ITI Supervisor Instructor in 7th Pay Commission

 

Supervisor Instructor is the key teaching post in ITI of all states. ITI stands for the Industrial Training Institute which provide the quality technical education across the country. ITI is managed by the State Government by the particular state. So, 7th Pay Commission pay scales and benefits will not be directly applicable to them. Generally, the most of the state governments will accept new pay commission for their employees. That’s why we have provided predicted pay scale and pay band of ITI’s teaching staff i.e. Supervisor Instructor.

Expected Pay Scale and Grade Pay of Gujarat ITI Supervisor Instructor in 7th Pay Commission

  • Current Pay Scale : Rs. 5200 – Rs. 20200 Plus Grade Pay Rs. 2800 = Entry Pay Rs. 11360
  • New Pay Scale : Rs. 15600 – Rs. 60600 Plus Grade Pay Rs. 8400 = Entry Pay Rs. 34080

Total payment of the Supervisor Instructor will be vary based on their city location i.e. Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. If you are working in metro city’s ITI then payment will be more comparable to smaller cities/town ITI staff.

 

About Supervisor Instructor

 

Supervisor Instructor work like a teacher in schools in Government ITIs. Supervisor Instructor provides his/her knowledge to empower the technical skill of the students. They are also known as “SI”.

There are various trades available in the Government ITI such as COPA, E-Commerce, Dress Making, Machinist Grinder, Motor Mechanic Vehicle (MMV), COE, Beauty Parlour, Welder, Turner, Fitter, Diesel Mechanic and others.

 

We hope that the information and details on Expected Pay Scale and Grade pay of Gujarat ITI Supervisor Instructor in Seventh Pay Commission will be useful for all the employees of the Industrial Training Institute.

PCDA Clarification on Dearness Relief to re-employed Ex-servicemen

PCDA Clarification on Dearness Relief to re-employed Ex-servicemen

Office of the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension),

Draupadi Ghat, Allahabad-211014

Date:12.05.2015

Sub: Payment of Dearness Relief to re employed pensioner: Clarification thereof.

As per para l(a) of MOD letter No. 7(1)/95/D(Pen/Services) dated 28.8.2000, entire pension admissible to ex-servicemen who held post below commissioned officers (PBOR) at the time of retirement, is ignored and their pay on re-employment is to be fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which they are re-employed. Such pensioners will consequently be entitled to dearness relief on their pension.
Deptt. of Pension and Pensioners Welfare, vide their UO No.41/42/2007/P&PW(G) dt. 03.04.2008, reproduced under this office circular No. 386 dt. 19.06.2008, further clarified that if the pay is fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of last pay drawn is given, the pay should be treated as fixed at a minimum only for the purpose of ignoring the entire pension and allowing dearness relief on pension. For availing this benefit the ex-servicemen would have retired at post below commissioned officers Rank (PBOR) before attaining the age of 55 years.

Now representations from the banks, where number of ex-clarify the elements to be taken into account for assessing the last pay drawn by the ex-servicemen for the purpose of last pay protection.

The dearness relief on re-employment should be regulated by the Pension Disbursing Agencies on the basis of certificate issued by re-employer, clearly stating whether benefit of last pay protection has been given or not. However, on examination of cases submitted by the banks it has been found that pay scale in banks are still on old pattern, whereas ex-servicemen have been retired with Pay in Pay Band, Grade Pay, MSP, Group Pay etc. In such cases it is clarified that for the purpose of assessing the last pay drawn for last pay protection, the elements to be taken into account should be last pay in pay band i.e. Band Pay plus Grade Pay, last drawn before retirement as envisaged vide MOP, PG & P, DOPT OM NO. 3/19/2009 Estt. Pay II dt. 8th Nov 2010 and no other elements should be taken for this purpose.

In view of the above, it is advised that all the cases of dearness relief where pay of ex-servicemen has been fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments may be reviewed and regulated accordingly.

Proposal for improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme for Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited employees

Proposal for improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme for Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited employees

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Cabinet

24-December-2014

Proposal for improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme for Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited employees

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval for an improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) for the employees of Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited (CIWTC) and disinvestment of CIWTC thereafter. The VRS currently in vogue in CIWTC is under the existing Central DA 1996/ Industrial DA 1997 is not attractive to employees and therefore does not evince much interest from the existing workforce of CIWTC.

The VRS benefit would be computed on 2006 pay scale for the employees covered under Central DA. For other category of employees, it would be based on 2007 Industrial DA linked pay scale. The improved VRS scheme would be opened for a period of three months from the date of its offer with a provision of extension by another one month. Necessary Grant-in-Aid from Government of India under Non-Plan would be given for this purpose.

Implementation of the improved VRS package would offer a better severance package to the employees of CIWTC. This would improve the prospects of finding an investor to either take over the assets or ensure viable commercial use of assets.

PROPOSED PAY SCALE OF 7TH PAY COMMISSION – NC JCM STAFF SIDE

PROPOSED PAY SCALE OF 7TH PAY COMMISSION – NC JCM STAFF SIDE
NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM STAFF SIDE IS PUBLISHED A DRAFT MEMORANDUM SUBMITTED TO 7TH PAY COMMISSION
 HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MEMORANDUM ARE GIVEN BELOW…
MINIMUM PAY SCALE – Rs.26000
MAXIMUM PAY SCALE – Rs.240000
RATIO BETWEEN MIN & MAX – 1:8
MERGER OF GRADES – 3050-3200, 5000-5500 AND 7450-7500 etc.,
CALCULATION BASED ON 5TH CPC
 Suggestion on Dearness Allowance for 7th Pay Commission – NC JCM STAFF SIDE
Dearness allowance
The neutralisation envisaged under the present system of computation of dearness compensation is supposed to be cent per cent, but in reality it is not the case. Actual consumer price index is much higher than the level at which DA is calculated on the basis of 12 monthly average. The average is always lower than the actual cost of living.
The calculation of consumer price index, its basis, the basket of goods on which it is based, are questionable and has become a matter of dispute. Since the Pay Commission being not the forum at which these issues could be taken, we do not propose to go into the details of this aspects.
We suggest, therefore, that the existing formula of computation of DA and its payment with effect from 1st January, and 1st July, may continue.
NC JCM STAFF SIDE SUGGESTION ON HOUSE RENT ALLOWANCE
National Council JCM Staff Side given suggestion on House Rent Allowance for Central Government employees as under…
House Rent allowance. 
The present scheme of HRA is based on the recommendation of the 6th CPC, which is as follows:
Population criteria classification Rate as a % of pay + Grade Pay + MSP +NPA
50 lakhs and above X 30%
50 to 5 lakhs Y 20%
Below 5 lakhs Z 10%
We reproduce hereunder the recommendation made by the third Central Pay Commission in the matter of grant of house rent allowance. (Para 29 Part I. Vol. IV.Chapter 56), which would be the best if implemented even today.
While we find it difficult to accept the kind of parity suggested above, we are aware of the acute problem caused by the lack of adequate government housing and by the inadequate government housing and by the inadequacy of the existing rates of house rent allowance and recommend as follows:-
Government should take houses on long lease and make residential accommodation available to its employees on payment of 10% of their pay.
(ii) Government should lay down appropriate house rent allowance rates in different cities and towns based not on population criteria, but on an actual assessment of the prevailing levels of rent in different cities and towns. Alternatively, certain notional rents for different types of accommodation meant for officers and personnel of specified pay groups should be laid down for particular cities after studying the actual conditions in that city. The difference between the actual rent paid and 10% of pay should be reimbursed subject to a maximum of the difference between the notional rent and 10% of the pay. The existing norms in regard to entitlement of accommodation, size of rooms etc. could, if necessary, be reduced depending on the housing situation and the norms usually adopted by different income groups in renting accommodation in the various cities. Such notional rents should, to start with, be applied to all stations falling under the description of classified cities for purposes of House Rent Allowance, Additions could also be made to the list later on by including other cities deserving similar treatment.
(iii) Till the Government is able to make arrangements recommended in the preceding sub-paragraphs, the rates of HRA should be as follows:-
Class of city/town Rate of HRA
1. A, B-1 and B-2 15% of pay subject to a maximum amount of Rs.400 as house rent allowance.
2. C class 7 ½ % of pay subject to a maximum amount of Rs.200 as house rent allowance

The above said recommendations is still to be acted upon by the Government and the transitory provisions suggested by them i.e. payment of allowances at a pre-determined rate on the basis of classification made of the cities depending upon the population continue to be employed. The non-implementation of the above recommendation of the third CPC , has without exception, gone to depress the wage of all sections of Central Government employees as they are perforce to spend more than what they receive as HRA for obtaining and retaining the accommodation.

The rates prescribed by the 6th CPC, though an improvement over its predecessor Commission, it has not improved the situation. The real estate value throughout the country has skyrocketed and owning an accommodation within the city/Municipal limit has become impossible for Government employees. There is not a single town/village where the real estate boom has remained unaffected. The phenomenal increase in the value of land has naturally impacted the rent, one is to pay on leasing house/flat. The house rent allowance does not bear even a small percentage of the rent. The 7th CPC may recommend to the Government to act upon the suggestion made by the 3rd CPC without any further delay. Pending action on the part of the Government, the Commission may suggest the following rates of House Rent allowance;

X classified cities: 60%
Y classified towns 40%
Z classified places 20%
Transport allowance. 

The 5th CPC had introduced transport allowance for employees working in classified towns on account of various factors like unprecedented growth of city limits, increase in volume of traffic and non availability of residential accommodation at reasonable rents near offices, which are usually located in the heart of cities. If these were the factors it appears that the 5th CPC did not take into account that it is usually a low paid employee who finds residence at a very long distance from his office whereas officers are offered residences very near to their offices. If, therefore, transport allowance was meant to defray the transportation charges from residence to office and back the higher rates should have been recommended for the low paid employees who were residing at a distant places. Since the 6th CPC‟s recommendation in this regard was implemented, there had been several rounds of increase in the fuel charges making a cascading impact on the public transport fares.

Taking these factors into account, we suggest that the following rates of transport

allowance may please be recommended.

Pay Range X classified city Y classified towns.
Pay upto Rs. 75,000 Rs. 7500 + DA Rs. 3750 +DA
Above Rs. 75,000 Rs. 6500 +DA Rs. 3500+ DA
 Foreign Tour for CG Employees – Demanded by NC JCM Staff Side
Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India  once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
Leave Travel Concession 
Leave Travel Concession is a facility extended to the Government employees, which enables scheme to avail holidays and undertack travel as a tourist with his family.
The facility provides him with an opportunity to be away from the monotonous daily routine and be with his family without the botherisation of the official duties. It is an established fact that if employer is encouraged to take such holidays they will reform rejuvenated and the employer is benefitted through his increased productivity.
Over the years, on representation from employees, the concession has been widened. However, some aspects of this facilities require certain further relaxations/improvements. We enumerate those as under:-
1. Permission for air journey for all categories of employees to and from NE Region.
2. Permission for personnel posted in NE Region for a journey within NE Region.
3. To increase the periodicity of the LTC once in two years.
4. Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India  once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
We request the 7th CPC to consider recommending our suggestion for improvements
to the Government.
NC JCM Staff Side demanding five promotions in the service career 
Career progression: Grant five promotions in the service career. 

For the efficient functioning of an institution, the primary pre-requisite is to have a contended workforce. It is not only the emoluments, perks and privileges that motivate an employee to give his best. They are no doubt important. But what is more important is to provide them a systematic career progression.

The present system of career progression available in the All India Services and the organised group A Civil services attracts large number of young, talented and educated persons to compete in the All India Civil Service Examination. No different was the career progression scheme available in the subordinate services in the past.

Persons who were recruited to subordinate services were able to climb to Managerial positions over a period of time. The situation underwent vast changes in the last two decades. In most of the Departments, stagnation has come to stay. It takes decades to be promoted to the next higher grade in the hierarchy. It was the recognition of the lack of promotional avenue in the subordinate services that made the 5th CPC to recommend a time bound two career progression scheme. The three time bound scheme of MACP instead of improving the situation has been found less beneficial and has therefore not gone to address the inherent problem of de-motivation that has crept in due to the high level of stagnation.

In most of the Departments, the exercise of cadre review which was considered important was not carried out. Any attempt in this regard was restricted to Group A services. The discontent amongst the employees in the matter is of high magnitude today. The VII CPC therefore, should recommend that the cadre revies are undertaken wherever not done sofar to ensure five hierarchical promotions to all employees in their career on the pattern obtaining for Group A Officers.

Classification of Posts. 
Except the 2nd CPC, all other earlier Commissions had recommended for the retention of the four Groups of classifications. The 2nd Pay Commission was of the opinion that the grouping of Central Government employees into four categories served no practical purpose. Rather, they commented that it had only created an unhealthy psychological effect. The 4th CPC therefore suggested for abandoning the classification of civil servants in 4 groups. They had examined the practice followed by other countries including those with a large and complex civil service, where it had not been found necessary to super impose upon their civil service grade and occupational groups.
During the last six and half decades, our country has moved quite far away from the colonial system of governance in substance and form. The 3rd CPC justified the grouping on an assumed equivalence of the work content in different levels of the various occupational groups. Over the years, changes in the scale of pay of many grade and cadres have taken place, even though there had been no change in the value or level of responsibility of the assigned jobs. Ddespite having no such addition to the level of responsibility to assigned jobs, the grades had to move from one group to another, because of the pay scale based grouping.

It is the view of he Department of Personnel on classification that has ultimately survived. It may not be out of place to mention that the service condition of Government employees are still governed by the rules enunciated, whether country was a British Colony.

Despite the specific provision in the constitution (Article 309) making it incumbent upon the parliament to enact the legislation to govern the service conditions of civil servants the fact remains that no Government which took over the reins of governance in the country could find time to introduce a Bill in the parliament for that purpose.

It is not therefore surprising that the DOPT stuck to the conservative position of maintaining the status quo. The four grouping which presently refers the classification, we must sadly state has taken the shape and content of “varnashram”. In almost all the PSUs, the classification is “Executive and Non Executives”. In our opinion all cadres, which were characterised as “Gazetted” in 1960s may be placed in the Group of Executive and the rest in non-executive.

We, therefore, request the 7th CPC to make recommendation on classification of posts on the basis suggested by us.
Children Education Allowance 

The Children Education allowance was introduced w.e.f. 1-9-2008 on the basis of the recommendation of 6th CPC. In the background of escalation of school fees, and other expenses connected with education of Children, the present scheme has been a big relief for the Government employees.

Presently the allowance is admissible for two children, for studying in a recognised school upto XII standard. The maximum ceiling is stipulated at Rs.18000/- since this allowance had been hiked by 50% because of the DA component in salary having been crossed 100% on 1.1.2014. We suggest doubling of this allowance and increasing the same by 50 % whenever the DA crosses over by 50%

The insistence of receipt for each and every expense to claim the allowance is a cumbersome procedure, which serves no purpose at all. In order to avoid a probable misuse, the employer may be asked to produce an affidavit to the effect this child/children were bonafide student of the school. The production of receipt may be dispensed with.

We also suggest that the scheme may be extended to cover children studying for Graduate/Post Graduate and Professional courses. This suggestion is being made in view of the huge expenses involved for the children’s higher studies, especially in the background of the Government with… from “higher education sector and allowing private institutions to come up and extract exorbitant changes for … courses. Since the quantum of allowance is fixed with a ceiling on maximum, our suggestion … increase the coverage.
We request our suggestion in the matter may be kindly be recommended to the Government for its acceptance.

Granting of 3rd MACP in GP 4600/- after Restructuring of Cadre of Artisan Staff in Defence Establishments in modification of recommendations of 6th  CPC – Clarification regarding.

BHARTIYA PRATIRAKSHA MAZDOOR SANGH
(AN ALL INDIA FEDERATION OF DEFENCE WORKERS)
(AN INDUSTRIAL UNIT OF B.M.S.)

REF: BPMS / MACPS / 64 (7/3/M)

Dated: 16.01.2014

To,
The Secretary,
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
South Block, DHQ PO,
New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Granting of 3rd  MACP in GP 4600/- after Restructuring of Cadre of Artisan Staff in Defence Establishments in modification of recommendations of 6th  CPC – Clarification regarding.

Reference: 1. MOD I.D. No. 11(5)/2009-D (Civ-I), Dated 28.12.2013

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to S.R.O. 13(E) Dated 04.05.1989 / S.R.O.-191 dated 28.11.1994 / S.R.O.-66 dated 27.05.2003 “Indian Ordnance Factories Group C Supervisory and Non-Gazetted Cadre (Recruitment and Conditions of Service) Rules” which stipulates that the post of Chargeman (Tech) will be filled up by-

(a) 25% by direct recruitment after adjustment of surplus and transfer,
(b) 25% by Limited Departmental Examination and
(c) 50% by promotion from panel prepared by relevant DPC for each category
and on failure of recruitment by promotion, by transfer failing which by direct recruitment {as mentioned in Point No. 2 of Annexure to OFB Letter No. 01/CR/A/I/Vol.II/658, dated 21.02.2011}.

It further stipulates that the post of Chargeman will be filled up by Promotion from Draughtsman or equivalent in scale of Rs.1200-2040 with 3 years service and by promotion from Highly Skilled Grade-I with 3 years of regular service failing which from Highly Skilled Grade-II with 6 years regular service in respectively category.

The above Recruitment Rule (SRO) nowhere says that the post of Chargeman will be filled by promotion from Master Craftsman.

It is to be noted that the post of Master Craftsman was created in pursuance of the recommendations of the 3rd Central Pay Commission made in Chapter 19 of Volume I of its Report, vide MOD letter No. 1(2)/80/D(Civ-I), dated 21.09.1982 in the pay scale of Rs. (425 – 640) at par with the Chargeman. Para 2(iv) of the letter stipulates that the incumbents selected for the post of Master Craftsman will forego their normal promotion to the supervisory grade; i.e., Chargeman.

The pay scale of Master Craftsman & Chargeman was revised to Rs. (1400 – 2300) as per 4th CPC but the 5th  CPC revised the pay scale of Master Craftsman to Rs. (4500 – 7000) whereas Chargeman was revised & upgraded to Rs. (5000 – 8000) w.e.f. 01.01.1996.

Subsequently, Restructuring of Cadre of Artisan Staff in Defence Establishments in modification of recommendations of the 5th CPC has been introduced vide MOD letter No.11(1)/2002/D(Civ-I), dated 20.05.2003 which states that the post of Master Craftsman shall not be part of the hierarchy and the placement in this grade will not be treated as promotion for Highly Skilled Grade either under normal promotion rules or under ACP Scheme. Para 4(iv) of the letter states that the post of Master Craftsman (Rs. 4500 – 7000) shall continue to be considered as Highly Skilled grade for the purpose of promotion to the grade of Chargeman-II (Rs. 5000 – 8000).

It is worth to mention here that Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has already decided that the administrative instructions cannot be issued in contravention of the statutory rules {C&AG of India vs. Mohan Lal Mehrotra, 1991 Lab IC (SC) 2328, para 22} and that there can be no dispute with the proposition that a rule framed under the Proviso to Art. 309 of the Constitution cannot be modified by an executive order {State of Maharashtra & Anr vs Chandrakant Anant Kulkarni & Ors: 1981 AIR 1990, 1982 SCR (1) 665}

The Supreme Court has held in the case of “Sant Ram Sharma vs State Of Rajasthan & Anr : 1967 AIR 1910, 1968 SCR (1) 111” as under:-

    “It is true that Government cannot amend or supersede statutory rules by administrative instructions, but if the rules are silent on any particular point Government can fill up the gaps and supplement the rules and issue instructions not inconsistent with the rules already framed.”

Contrary to above, vide letter cited under reference MOD has communicated that the idea of exclusion of the post of Master Craftsman (MCM) from further promotions in the hierarchy (Chargeman in the same Grade Pay) has not found favour with the Defence Finance.

We are surprised to construe from above that Defence Finance may promote any person on any post which may be against the provisions of relevant Recruitment Rules (SRO) made under the proviso of Article 309 of the Constitution of India.

Here, we would like to draw your attention to Para 3.1 of Govt. of India, DoP&T O.M. No. 22011/5/86-Estt.(D), dated 10th April, 1989 issued as consolidated instructions on Departmental Promotion Committee, which stipulates as under:-

   “ ….. A vacancy shall be filled in accordance with the recruitment rules in force on the date of vacancy, unless rules made subsequently have been expressly given retrospective effect. Since amendments to the recruitment rules normally have only prospective application, the existing vacancies should be filled as per the recruitment rules in force. Holding of DPC meetings need not be delayed or postponed on the ground that recruitment rules for a post are being reviewed/amended.”

It is worth to mention here that Para 2 of Annexure – I of DOP&T O.M. No. 35034/3/2008-Estt. (D), dated 19.05.2009 of MACPS provides that the MACPS envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of the recommended revised pay bands and grade pay as given in Section I, Part – A of the first schedule of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 and which is as under;

Grade Pay Rs. 1800/- Grade Pay Rs. 4200/-
Grade Pay Rs. 1900/- Grade Pay Rs. 4600/-
Grade Pay Rs. 2000/- Grade Pay Rs. 4800/-
Grade Pay Rs. 2400/- Grade Pay Rs. 5400/-
Grade Pay Rs. 2800/- Grade Pay and so on

Hence, a person who is drawing grade pay of Rs. 4200 due to 02 promotions/ACPs and completes 30 years regular service on or after 01.09.2008 will be granted financial upgradation under 03rd MACPS in grade pay of Rs. 4600/-.

Therefore, you are requested to review the referred clarifications and withdraw the same without further delay and clarify that since the post of MCM was not in hierarchy of artisan staff cadre upto 31.12.2005, the Highly Skilled worker/MCM who were already drawing the pay scale of Rs. (5000 – 8000) under ACP Scheme may be considered for further financial upgradations in the next Grade Pay (Rs. 4600) in the hierarchy of Grade Pays.

Thanking you.

Yours Sincerely
