The powers to grant Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance remain delegated to the Ministries and Head of Departments who, at their discretion, may appoint Junior Secretariat Assistants / Senior Secretariat Assistants / Assistant Section Officers / officials holding substantive post up to level 7 of Pay Matrix, to perform the duties of Cashiers. The grant of Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance shall be subject to the following conditions:-

(i) The amount of Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance to be granted will depend on the average amount of monthly Cash disbursed, excluding payment by cheques/ drafts/ECS/online payments/other modes where cash handling in physical form is not involved.
(ii) The Ministry or Head of the Department concerned should certify, on the basis of the previous financial year’s average, the amount of Cash disbursed and sanction the rate of Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance appropriate to that quantum. The average amount of Cash disbursed should be arrived at by taking the total amount shown as disbursed in the Cash Book reduced by the items disbursed in the form of cheques/R.T.Rs/Drafts/ECS/online payments/other modes where cash handling in physical form is not involved, etc.
(iii) The Cash Handling and Treasury Allowance granted to the official should be reviewed every financial year.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Travel entitlements of Government employees for the purpose of LTC post Seventh Central Pay Commission – clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M.of even no. dated 19.09.2017 on the subject noted above, which inter-alia provides that the travel entitlements of  Government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide Ministry of Finance’s O.M.

2. It is observed that many Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix had inadvertently travelled by air on LTC during the intervening period from 13.07.2017  to 19.09.2017 (i.e. post issue of MoF’s O.M. dated 13.07.2017 and before the issue of DoPT’s  O.M. dated 19.09.2017) under the impression that they were entitled for air travel as per the  revised TA rules. This Department is in receipt of references from the Government employees  and various Ministries/Departments seeking relaxation in respect of such Government  employees in view of the hardships faced by them in settlement of their LTC claims.

3. The matter has been examined in this Department in consultation with Department of Expenditure.

7th Pay Commission Report – LOK SABHA

7th Pay Commission Report, Burden On Finance/Exchequer, Productivity Linked Pay Hike And Any Alternative Of Future Pay Commission

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF FINANCE
LOK SABHA

UNSTARRED QUESTION NO: 1652
ANSWERED ON: 27.07.2018

Pay Commission Reports

RAJENDRA AGRAWAL
Will the Minister of FINANCE be pleased to state:-

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

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

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

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

ANSWER

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

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

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

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

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

Office Memorandum

Subject: Recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Implementation of decisions relating to the grant of Children Education Allowance (CEA) and Hostel Subsidy – Consolidated instructions.

Consequent upon the decisions taken by the Government to implement the recommendations made by the VII Central Pay Commission, this Department has issued an OM of even number dated 16-8-2017 revising the rates of CEA/Hostel Subsidy and simplifying the procedure for claiming reimbursement of the same. However this Department has been receiving various queries regarding CEA/Hostel Subsidy especially with regard to the applicability of various provision/instructions issued during sixth CPC regime/period. Further references have also been received regarding the difficulty being faced by some government employees in obtaining certificate of the Head of the

Institution as mentioned in this Department’s OM of even number dated 16-8-2017.

2. Keeping in view the above, it has been decided to issue consolidated instructions in supersession of all earlier OMs on the subject of Children Education Allowance and Hostel subsidy as under:-

a) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel subsidy can be claimed only for the two eldest surviving children with the exception that in case the second child birth results in twins/multiple birth. In case of failure of sterilization operation, the CEA/Hostel Subsidy would be admissible in respect of children born out of the first instance of such failure beyond the usual two children norm.

b) The amount for reimbursement of Children Education allowance will be Rs.2250/- per month (fixed) per child. This amount of Rs.2250/- is fixed irrespective of the actual expenses incurred by the Govt. Servant. In order to claim reimbursement of CEA, the Govt. servant should produce a certificate issued by the Head of the Institution for the period/year for which claim has been preferred. The certificate should confirm that the child studied in the school during the previous academic year. In case such certificate can not be obtained, self- attested copy of the report card or self attested fee receipt(s){including e-receipt(s)} confirming/indicating that the fee deposited for the entire academic year can be produced as a supporting document to claim CEA. The period/year means academic year i.e. twelve months of complete academic session.

c) The amount of ceiling of hostel subsidy is Rs.6750/- pm. In order to claim reimbursement of Hostel Subsidy for an academic year, a similar certificate from the Head of Institution confirming that the child studied in the school will suffice, with additional requirement that the certificate should mention the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential

complex. In case such certificate cannot be obtained, self attested copy of the report card and original fee receipt(s)/e-receipt(s) which should indicate the amount of expenditure incurred by the Government servant towards lodging and boarding in the residential complex can be produced for claiming Hostel Subsidy: The expenditure on boarding and lodging or the ceiling of Rs.6750/- as mentioned above, whichever is lower, shall be paid to the employee as Hostel Subsidy. The period/year will mean the same as explained above in clause (b) of this para.

d) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance for Divyaang children of government employees shall be payable at double the normal rates of CEA prescribed above in clause (b) i.e. Rs.4500/- per month (fixed).

e) The above rates/ceiling would be automatically raised by 25% every time the Dearness Allowance on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%.

f) The Hostel Subsidy and Children Education Allowance can be claimed concurrently.

g) In case both the spouses are Government servants, only one of them can avail reimbursement under Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy.

h) The reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy will be done just once in a financial year after completion of the financial year.

i) Hostel subsidy is applicable only in respect of the child studying in a residential educational institution located at least 50 kilometers from the residence of the Government servant.

j) The reimbursement of Children Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy shall have no nexus with the performance of the child in his class. In other words, even if a child fails in a particular class, the reimbursement of Children Education Allowance/Hostel Subsidy shall not be stopped. However, if the child is admitted in the same class in another school, although the child has passed out of the same class in previous school or in the mid-session, CEA shall not be reimbursable.

k) If a Government servant dies while in service, the Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible in respect of his/her children subject to observance of other conditions for its grant provided the wife/husband of the deceased is not employed in service of the Central Govt., State Government, Autonomous body, PSU, Semi Government Organization such as Municipality, Port Trust Authority or any other organization partly or fully funded by the Central Govt./State Governments. In such cases the CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be payable to the children till such time the employee would have actually received the same, subject. to the condition that other terms and conditions are fulfilled. The payment shall be made by the office in which the Government servant was working prior to his death and will be regulated by the other conditions, laid down in this OM.

I) In case of retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service, CEA/Hostel Subsidy shall be admissible till the end of the academic year in which the Government servant ceases to be in service due to retirement, discharge, dismissal or removal from service in the course of an academic year. The payment shall be made by the office in which the government servant worked prior to these events and will be regulated by the other conditions laid down in this OM.

m) The upper age limit for Divyaang children has been set at 22 years. In the case of other children the age limit will be 20 years or till the time of passing 12th class whichever is earlier. There shall be no minimum age.

n) Reimbursement of CEA and Hostel Subsidy shall be applicable for children from class nursery to twelfth, including classes eleventh and twelfth held by Junior Colleges or schools affiliated to Universities or Boards of Education.

0) CEA is allowed in case of children studying through “Correspondence or Distance Learning” subject to other conditions laid down herein.

p) The CEA and Hostel Subsidy is admissible in respect of children studying from two classes before class one to 12th standard and also for the initial two years of a diploma/certificate course from Polytechnic/ITI/Engineering College, if the child pursues the course after passing 10th standard and the Government servant has not been granted CEA/ Hostel Subsidy in respect of the child for studies in I1th and 12th standards.
q) In respect of schools/institutions at nursery, primary and middle level not affiliated to any Board of education, the reimbursement under the Scheme may be allowed for the children studying in a recognized school/institution. Recognized school/institution in this regard means a Government school or any education institution whether in receipt of Govt. Aid or not, recognized by the Central or State Government or Union Territory Administration or by University or a recognized educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution/school is situated.

r) In case of a Divyaang child studying in an institution i.e. aided or approved by the Central/State Govt. or UT Administration or whose fees are approved by any of these authorities, the Children Education Allowance paid by the Govt. servant shall be reimbursed irrespective of whether the institution is ‘recognized’ or not. In such cases the benefits will be admissible till the child attains the age of 22 years.

s) The CEA is payable for the children of all Central Government employees including citizens of Nepal[ and Bhutan, who are employees of Government of India, and whose children are studying in the native place. However, a certificate may be obtained from the concerned Indian Mission that the school ‘ is recognized by the educational authority having jurisdiction over the area where the institution is situated.

t) The Children Education Allowance or hostel subsidy shall be admissible to a Govt. servant while he/she is on duty or is under suspension or is on leave (including extra ordinary leave). Provided that during any period which is treated as ‘dies non’ the Govt. servant shall not be eligible for the CEA/Hostel subsidy for that period.

3. These above instructions would come into effect from 1st July, 2017.

Dated : 29.06.2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Interest bearing advances/ Seventh Central Pay commission recommendation on House Building Advance – enhancement in past cases regarding.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Ministry’s OM No. I- 17011/11(4)/2016-H.III dated 09.11.2017 on the above-mentioned subject and to say that it has been decided in consultation with Ministry of Finance to make the aforesaid orders applicable with effect from 1st January, 2016. Accordingly, it has been decided that an enhancement of House Building Advance, if applied for, would be granted to government employee for an amount equivalent to the difference between the previously sanctioned amount and the new eligible amount determined on the basis of basic pay as per 7th CPC, in past cases, where HBA was sanctioned on or after 01.01.2016 but before 09.11.2017 subject to complying following conditions :

a) The Government employee should not have drawn the entire amount of HBA sanctioned under earlier orders and/ or where construction is not completed/full cost towards acquisition of house/ flat is yet to be paid.

b) There will be no deviation from the approved plan of construction on the basis of which the original sanction of House Building Advance was accorded. The revised cost of the original plan can, however, be considered for determining the additional amount, subject to the prescribed maximum limits.

c) Supplementary Mortgage Deed, Personal Bond and Sureties will be drawn and executed at the expense of the loanee.

d) The actual entitlement will be restricted to the repaying capacity computed on the basis of the formula laid down in this Ministry’s OM No I-17011/11(4)/2016-H.III dated 09.11.2017. It should be ensured that the entire amount of advance with interest is recovered before retirement of the Government servant

e) Rate of interest:

The rate of interest will be at 8.50% from the financial year 2017-18 onwards. This will be reviewed every three years to be notified in consultation with Ministry of Finance. However, the new rate of interest would be chargeable only on collective amount that would remain outstanding on grant of enhancement of HBA, i.e., the unpaid portion of previously sanctioned HBA plus the enhancement so granted. Thus, the amount of HBA that has already been re-paid on old rates will not attract the fresh interest charges.

2. However, the existing limit of maximum admissible amount of Rs. 25 lakhs for the purpose of construction/ purchase of new house/ flat and Rs. 10 lakhs for expansion of existing house/ flat would remain unchanged. In other words, the sum total of previously, sanctioned House Building Advance and the enhancement granted under these orders cannot exceed the aforesaid limits. In any case, not more than one enhancement is admissible to a Government employee.

3. The applications for enhanced House Building Advance should be submitted within six months from the date of issue of this order.

4. Ministries/ Departments with branch offices in the far-flung areas are be advised to give wider publicity to these orders through modern communication means so that there is no occasion for any representation for extending the time limit of six months on the grounds of late receipt of these orders.

5. This issues in supersession of all the earlier orders on the subject.

LOK SABHA

STARRED QUESTION NO: 568
ANSWERED ON: 06.04.2018

Pay Commission Reports

JOSE K. MANI
Will the Minister of

FINANCE be pleased to state:-

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

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

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

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

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

A Statement is laid on the Table of the House

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

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

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

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

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