Stepping up of pay of senior Assistants of CSS drawing less pay on promotion in the Section Officers Grade than their juniors

Stepping up of pay of senior Assistants of CSS drawing less pay on promotion in the Section Officers Grade than their juniors

 

F.No.18/2/2014-CS-I(S)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, PG & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

2nd Floor, A Wing, Lok Nayak Bhawan, Khan Market
New Delhi, the 6 November, 2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Stepping up of pay of senior Assistants of CSS drawing less pay on promotion in the Section Officers Grade than their juniors -regarding.

Ref: OM No.18/2/2007-CS-l dated 20.05.2014 & 08.07.2014 and OM No.18/212014-CS.l(S) dated 27.12.20216.

Representations have been received from some CSS officers in whose case re-fixation and recovery orders have been issued by concerned Ministries/Departments in pursuance to DOPT OM dated 20.05.2014, requesting withdrawal of the OMs referred above.

2. It is once again clarified that OM No.5/16/80-CS.I dated 13.4.1988 was issued on acceptance of award by Board of Arbitration in CA Reference No.7 of 1984 which allowed stepping up of pay of an Assistant of CSS, who is senior by virtue of having been recruited through an earlier examination but is drawing less pay on promotion in the Grade of Section Officer than his junior recruited through a later examination, up to a level equal to the pay of such junior Section Officer in the same cadre i.e. senior DR Assistant to junior DR Assistant of later exam on their promotion as Section Officer. Vide OM No.5/21/92-CS.I dated 23.2.1994 this benefit of stepping up was extended to Section Officers appointed through Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) (again applicable to DR Assistants only). OM No.5/1/96-CS.I dated 8.10.1996 further extended this benefit in case of promotee Assistants and also to the cases where both junior and senior have been recruited on the basis of the same Select List Assistants Grade Examination, as the case may be in accordance with judgements of CAT in OA No. 365/90 (Shri K.C. Sehgal VS UOI and CA No. 869/91 (Shri L.K. Chawla VS UOI), which were upheld by the Hon’ble Supreme Court.

3. That there are general guidelines of stepping up of pay issued by the Ministry of Finance vide OM No.F.2(78)-E.III(A) dated 0 .02.1966 and this Department vide OM dated 04.11.1993. One of the conditions of the general guidelines for allowing stepping up of pay to a senior govt. servant with reference to a junior is that the senior should have drawn more pay than the junior in the lower grade also.

4. However, certain clarifications were issued by CS-I Division, DoPT in 2007 and 2008 to individual Ministries/Departments, on references received from them, which were at variance with the general conditions of stepping up of pay i.e. stepping up of pay was allowed even if junior was drawing more pay than the senior in the lower grade i.e. in Assistant/Grade. Therefore, vide OM dated 29.5.2009, the clarification issued in 2007 & 2008 were withdrawn and Ministries/Departments were advised to strictly allow stepping up enforcing conditions laid down in OM dated 8.10.1996. Departments were also informed vide OM dated 21.05.2010 that as the matter was still under consideration, status-quo, as on date, might be maintained in the matter of stepping up of pay of Section Officers of CSS till the matter attains finality. Eventually, the matter attained finality and a consolidated OM as vetted by the Estt..(Pay) Division of this Department and Department of Expenditure was issued on 20.05.2014.

5. The Ministries/Departments were requested vide OM dated 20.05.14 that stepping up of pay already allowed in cases where the individuals are not covered by the OMs dated 13.04.1988, 23.02.1994 and 08.10.1996 and general conditions as laid down in OM dated 04.11.193, should be reviewed and pay re-fixed accordingly. That excess payments made to the employees in the cases of wrong stepping up of pay should be recovered in terms of DOP&T’s OM No.18/26/2011-Estt(Pay-l) dated 06.02.2014 and a compliance report in this regard furnished to this Department. It was further clarified vide OM dated 08.7.2014 that all the three OMs and general conditions of stepping up of pay are not exclusive of each other and the three OMs are to be read with and subject to the general conditions reiterated vide OM dated 4.11.1993, therefore, stepping up of pay is not to be allowed where junior was drawing more pay than the senior in the lower grade.

6. As regards, OA No.2884/2015 and similar OAs filed in this regard, it is observed that only applicants in these cases have been granted interim stay by the Learned CAT. That the said OAs have been filed by the applicants in the individual capacity. Thus in all those cases where stepping up of pay has been allowed, but where the benefited individuals were not covered by the OMs dated 13.4.88, 23.2.94 and 8.10.96 and the general conditions of stepping up of pay as laid down in the DOP&T’s OM No. 4/7/92-Estt(Pay-1) dated 04.11.93, pay will have to be re-fixed and recovery of excess payment, if any, is to be made.

7. Therefore, vide reminder OM dated 27.12.16, the Ministries/Departments were requested to expedite the compliance reports as requested vide OM dated 20.05.2014 except in those cases where matter of recovery is subjudice/stayed by order of any competent court.

8. It may be mentioned that one of the similarly placed officers, in whose case orders for stepping up of pay with reference to a promotee assistant was issued but not implemented, had approached CA (PB) through OA No.1199/2014(H.C. Rai vs. UOI). The CAT vide its order dated 28.03.17 while dismissing the OA had categorically ruled that the stepping up of his pay was not in consonance with the provisions of OM dated 20.05.2014 i.e. OMs dated 13.4.88, 23.2.94 and 8.10.96.

9. With regards difficulty being faced by some Ministries/Departments in establishing links/chain of officers in refixation/recovery matters, it is hereby mentioned that many Ministries/Departments have already issued re-fixation orders establishing links by themselves as per the instructions issued by this Department.

10. All the Ministries/Departments are thus again requested to furnish the compliance reports in the prescribed proforma, latest by 15th November 2017.

11. In view of above, the representations/OMS of following have no merit and are accordingly disposed off:

Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200

Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200

Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay

No. I/2/Part IV

Dated: 05/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub : Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200 – reg.

Ref: FA & CAO/T/SC Railway’s letter No. ACP/KOO/Pt. VI (Restructuring) dated 06/01/2017 & 21/03/2017 and letter No. ACP/AO2/Pt. VI dated 01/08/2017 to Railway Board.

Federation invites attention of the Railway Board to the letters of FA & CAO/T/SC cited under reference, seeking clarification as to whether the staff promoted from same Grade Pay to same Grade Pay (Rs.GP 4200) i.e. from the post of Senior Cashier (GP 4200) to the post of Inspector of Cashier (10C/GP 4200) are entitled to draw an additional increment as they are shouldering responsibilities.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that the references sent by the South Central Railway have been pending in Board’s Office since Jan 2017, even though the employees are eligible for additional increment on promotion to identical Grade Pay, shouldering higher responsibilities in terms of Rule S-13.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions allowing benefit under S13 to GM, S.C. Railway, endorsing copy to other Zonal Railways as well to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

S/d,

Option for pay fixation in the 7 CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railway employees during the period 01/01/2016 to 25/07/2017

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/RB-Part II

Dated: 04/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7 CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railway employees during the period 01/01/2016 to 25/07/2017-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Ministry’s Notification vide RBE No. 90/2016 dated 29/07/2016.

(ii)     Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/1/6/2 dated 20/10/2016 – RBE No. 124/2016.

(iii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC (Imp)/2016/RB-Part I dated 16/01/2017 & 07/08/2017.

(iv)    Railway Board’s reply to NFIR vide No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/7 dated 31/03/2017.

Further to the above cited references, Federation has since found that on Zonal Railways, option 2 given by staff had not been accepted on the wrong plea that option opportunity has been allowed to those promoted/got financial upgradation under MACPS/got increment during the period 01/01/2016 and 28/07/2016 (i.e. date of notification). In this connection, Federation cites below the following instances as example:

(i)  Employees promoted between 29/07/2016 to 28/10/2016 and exercised option for fixation of pay in 7th CPC within the stipulated period electing option No. 2.

The pay of the Technicians GP 2800/Level 5 on promotion as Sr. Technicians GP 4200/Level 6 on 27/10/2016 has been fixed in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix as shown vide ‘A’ below whereas pursuant to option No. 2 exercised by staff, they are entitled for pay fixation on promotion as shown vide ‘B’ below:

Pay in 6th CPC as on 01/01/2016 GP 2800 Pay Revised & fixed in 7th CPC
w.e.f. 01/01/2016
Pay in 7th CPC as on 27/10/2016  Pay in 6th CPC
when continued
upto 27/10/2016
Pay in 6th CPC on promotion to GP 4200 as on 27/10/2016 Pay required tofixed in 7th CPC taking into account option
12970 34900 35900 13360
(10560+2800)
15160
(10960+4200)
39900

Unfortunately, the staff have been denied their legitimate pay fixation benefit even after submission of their correct option in time.

(ii)  Another aberration is that in the case of Technicians who have been granted cadre restructuring w.e.f. 01/09/2016 vide RBE No. 116/2016, the Zonal Railways have issued promotion orders belatedly while at the same time, option opportunity not allowed, consequently pay fixation has been granted vide ‘A’ below instead granting pay fixation benefit (on the basis of re-option) as ‘B’ below:

Pay in 6th CPC as on 01/01/2016 Pay Revised &
fixed in 7th CPC
as on 01/01/2016
Pay in 7th CPC as on 01/09/2016 in L5 Pay in 6th CPC when continued till 31/08/2016 Pay in 6th CPC on promotion in GP 4200 as on 01/09/2016 Pay    to   be    fixed
with option in 7th CPC in L6
15210 39200 40400 15670
(12870+2800)
17540
(13340+4200)
46,200

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above situations and issue clear clarificatory instructions, granting pay fixation benefit on the basis of re-option being exercised by staff as per charts ‘B’ above.NFIR contends that in as much as promotion allowed w.e.f. 01/09/2016, such staff are entitled for option opportunity in terms of RBE No. 90/2016 and 124/2016.

Relaxation of residency period for promotion of Jr. Accounts Asstt (GP 2800/-) as Accounts Asstt (GP 4200/-) on Indian Railways

Relaxation of residency period for promotion of Jr. Accounts Asstt (GP 2800/-) as Accounts Asstt (GP 4200/-) on Indian Railways

No. II/6/Part 8

Dated: 23/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Relaxation of residency period for promotion of Jr. Accounts Asstt (GP 2800/-) as Accounts Asstt (GP 4200/-) on Indian Railways-reg.

NFIR invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the provisions made in the Indian Railway Establishment Manual Vol. I (2009 Edition) – Para 171 (5) wherein it has been stipulated that the posts of Accounts Assistants in GP 4200/PB-2 will be filled by promotion of Jr. Accounts Assistants in GP 2800/- on completion of three years service in the Grade and on passing Appendix-ll Examination. The said para of the IREM is reproduced below:-

“The posts in the grade of Accounts Assistants in Scale Rs. 1400-2600 will be filled by promotion of Junior Accounts Assistants in Scale Rs. 1200-2040 after they have completed three years service in the grade and passed Appendix II examination. Provided that the condition of passing the Appendix II Examination will not be applicable to those Jr. Accounts Assistants, who were promoted as such against un-qualified senior suitable quota as per clause 3 (ii) above”.

2. Further the Federation brings to the notice of Railway Board that vide provision contained in Para 215 (a) of IREM (Rules governing the promotion of Group ‘C’ Staff) – Section B/Chapter I, it has been laid down that for promotion within Group ‘C’, a minimum of 2 years service in the immediate lower Grade is necessary.

In view of the above, Federation proposes that the minimum residency period of three years for promotion of J AA to Accounts Assistants with the condition of passing Appendix 11 IREM Examination be reduced to two years for ensuring equitable justice to staff.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly consider the above points and amend the extant provision of 3 years residency period to two years as is in vogue in other than Accounts Department/which would enable appendix qualified staff to get promotion to the post of Accounts Assistant.

Federation may please be replied of action being taken on the above proposal.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

7th CPC Matrix Level MACP Anomaly – Detail Illustration

7th CPC Matrix Level MACP Anomaly – Detail Illustration

Recently NFIR writes letter to Railway board with the subject “MACPS anomaly as a result of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels”

NFIR given illustration relating to no benefit in certain situations where the employee is granted MACP, also NFIR requested rectification from the Railway Board.

In the existing pay matrix the stages of pay are same in most of the levels such as level 2 & 3, 6 & 7 , 7 & 8 etc.

In case an employee is upgraded under MACP from one level to another level, his pay will be exactly same as he/she may have drawn even without receiving the benefit under MACP. He/She get only one increment, no benefit in promotion.

Here is the detail Illustration for all pay scales in the level 2 & 3, 6 & 7 , 7 & 8

Same Value in Next Pay Level, during MACP / Promotion upgrade

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016-regarding.

Prior to implementation of 6th CPC Report, the pay fixation on promotion was governed by provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1). In 6th CPC context, the first part of FR 22(I)(a)(1) was replaced by Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. Similarly, consequent upon implementation of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 in 7th CPC context, the pay fixation on promotion is regulated by the provisions of Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. This rule regulates pay fixation on promotion if the same is opted by the employee from the date of promotion itself. The issue of relevancy of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) as well as the methodology of fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance, of a Government Servant in case he opts for pay fixation from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) has been considered in this Department.

2. In this context, proviso under FR 22(I)(a)(1) inter-alia provides that the Government Servant (other than those appointed on deputation basis to ex-cadre post or on ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) shall 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 or to have the pay fixed from the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of the pay in lower grade.

3. After due consideration in this matter, the President is pleased to decide as follows:

(i) FR 22(I)(a)(1) holds good with regard to availability of option clause for pay fixation, to a Government Servant holding a post, other than a tenure post, in a substantive or temporary or officiating capacity, who is promoted or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity, as the case may be, subject to the fulfilment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant Recruitment Rules,to another post carrying duties or responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him/her. Such Government Servant may opt to have his/her pay fixed from the Date of his/her Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) accruing in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, except in cases of appointment on deputation basis to an ex-cadre post or on direct recruitment basis or appointment/promotion on ad-hoc basis.

(ii) In case, consequent upon his/her promotion, the Government Servant opts to his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) in the Level of the post from which Government Servant is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his/her DNI, the Government Servant shall be placed at the next higher cell in the level of the post to which he/she is promoted.

promotion-chart

(iii) Subsequently, on DNI in the level of the post to which Government Servant is promoted, his//her Pay will be re-fixed and two increments (one accrued on accoun tof annual increment and the second accrued on account of promotion) may be granted in the Level from which the Government Servant is promoted and he/she shall be placed, at a Cell equal to the figure so arrived, in the Level of the post to which he/she is promoted; and if no such Cell is available in the Level to which he/she is promoted, he/she shall be placed at the next higher Cell in that Level.promotion-chart

(iv) In such cases where Government Servant opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, the next increment as well as Date of Next Increment (DNI) will be regulated accordingly.

4. It is further reiterated that in order to enable the officials to exercise the option within the time limit prescribed, the option clause for pay fixation on promotion with effect from date of promotion/DNI shall invariably be incorporated in the promotion/appointment order so that there are no cases of delay in exercising the options due to administrative lapse.

5. In so far as their application to the employees belonging to the Indian Audit and Accounts Department is concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller &Auditor General of India.

Safeguarding the career prospect of Group A, Gr. B and Gr. C officers in all Central Govt. Departments by granting timely promotions

Safeguarding the career prospect of Group A, Gr. B and Gr. C officers in all Central Govt. Departments by granting timely promotions

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT GAZETTED OFFICERS’ ORGANISATIONS

Confederation/Corres/2016-17/16

Dated: 20.03.2017

To
Dr.Jitendra Singh,
Honourable Minister of State (Independent Charge),
PMO & Development of North Eastern Region,
Government of India
New Delhi.

Respected Sir,

Sub: Safeguarding the career prospect of Group A, Gr. B and Gr. C officers in all Central Govt. Departments by granting timely promotions – request regarding.

Kindly refer to the burgeoning impasse created in all Central Govt. Departments in respect of promotions in Gr. A, Gr. B and Gr. C cadres following the DoPT OM dated 30.09.2016 on reservation.

The process of holding DPC meetings for promotion from Gr. B to Gr. A cadres in all Departments was aborted by the UPSC immediately after the OM.No 36012/11/2016-Estt(Res) Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension Department of Personnel and Training dated 30.09.2016, in connection with the pending SLP/Contempt Petition in the case of Jarnail Sngh vs Lachhmi Narain Gupta in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, was issued. The UPSC categorically refused to hold any DPC to any grade having reservation element, unless the said OM is further clarified by DoPT to its satisfaction. It is learnt that the UPSC had sought clarification from DoPT immediately after the issuance of the said OM, and that no clarification has so far been issued by the DoPT.

As the UPSC is considered as the nodal agency for accepting various Instructions/OMs/Circulars issued by the Govt. of India time to time in relation to promotion and holds DPCs accordingly, the refusal of UPSC to hold DPC of any grade having reservation element unless the said OM is further clarified by DoPT has barred all cadre-controlling authorities in all Departments to hold DPCs for promotion in various Gr. B and Gr. C cadres As a result, all regular promotions into Group A, Group B and Group C cadres all over the country have been stalled

As a matter of fact, as the cut-off date for counting of mandatory residency period in all cadres is fixed on 1st of April by the DoPT, the seniority and due career prospect of many officers/officials across various Departments would suffer irreparably if the normal promotion is not accorded to them on or before 31.03.2017. And if it happens, these unfortunate officers will lose at least one year for all consecutive promotions in their career for no fault of themselves.

As per our understanding of the subject, until the DoPT issues clarification of the OM dated 30.09.2016 and help the UPSC to decide the future course of action in respect of promotions in Gr. B to Gr. A cadres in various Departments, neither the vacancy position at various levels in Departments would improve nor the career prospects of officers/officials would be protected.

In view of the above, we are constrained to seek the intervention of the Hon. Minister in directing the DOPT to clarify the issues raised by the UPSC so that the promotions of Officers/Officials who serve the Government of India do not suffer unjustifiably.

We do trust that the Honourable Minister will render justice to those who serve the Government of India

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely,
S/d,
(S. Mohan)
Secretary General

7th Central Pay Commission retains rate of annual increment at 3%

7th Central Pay Commission retains rate of annual increment at 3%

7thpaycommission-breaking-news

The 7th Central Pay Commission has retained the rate of annual increment at 3 per cent. The 7th CPC has also recommended withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

The 7th Central Pay Commission has retained the rate of annual increment at 3 per cent. The 7th CPC has also recommended withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service. These recommendations have been accepted by the government.

The 7th CPC has observed that it is essential to have a linkage between Departmental Results Framework Documents (RFD) and Annual Appraisal Performance Report (APAR), and has suggested the following modifications in the existing APAR system for determining Performance Related Pay:

(i) Alignment of Objectives: The Ministry’s Vision/Mission needs to be translated into a set of strategic objectives for each department and these objectives need to be cascaded by the Department Head to his subordinates and subsequently down the chain.
(ii) Prioritizing Objectives, Assigning Success Indicators and their Weights: Objectives reflected in the APAR should be prioritized and assigned weights along with success indictors or Key Performance Indicators. The Commission recommended 60 percent weight on work output and 40 percent weight on personal attributes, instead of the existing 60 percent weight on personal attributes and only 40 percent weight to work output.

(iii) No Ex-ante Agreement: The indicators in the APAR of an officer/staff will need to be discussed and set with the supervisor at the beginning of the year.

(iv) Timelines: The timelines for RFD may be synchronized with the preparation of the APAR so that the targets set under RFD get reflected in individual APARs in a seamless manner.

(v) Online APAR System: The Commission recommended introduction of online APARs system for all Central Government officers/employees.

This was stated by Arjun Ram Meghwal, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance, in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
