7th CPC Pay Matrix – Anomaly in Increment Rate & Loss in increment

Agenda item No. 1 for the meeting of the National Anomaly committee sent to NC JCM by Confederation vide No. Ref: Confdn/JCM NC/Anomaly/2016-19 Dated – 03.07.2017

Item – I – ANOMALY IN INCREMENT RATE

As per clause(C) of the terms of reference of the National Anomaly Committee – where the official side and the staff side are of the opinion that any recommendations is in contravention of the principle or the policy enunciated by the Seventh Central Pay Commission itself without the commission assigning any reason – it constitutes an anomaly.

Regarding annual increment the recommendations of seventh CPC are as follows:

(i) 7th CPC Report – Highlights of Recommendations -

SL – 7 – Annual Increment – The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3 percent.

(ii) 7th CPC Report – Forword

Para 1.19 – The prevailing rate of increment is considered quite satisfactory and has been retained.

(iii) 7th CPC Report – Chapter 4.1 -Principles of Pay determination

Para- 4.1.17 – The various stages within a pay level moves upwards at the rate of 3 percent per annum.

(iv) 7th CPC Report – Chapter 5.1 – Pay Structure (Civilian Employees)

Para 5.1.38 – Annual Increment

“The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3 percent”

Para 5.1.21 – The Vertical range of each level denotes pay progress within that level. That indicates steps of annual financial progression of 3 percentage within each level.

Contrary to the above principle laid down by the 7th CPC, the actual increment rate in the Pay levels of the Pay matrix are less than 3% as illustrated in the Table below: –

ILLUSTRATION-I – LOSS IN INCREMENT

Pay Level Sl. No. in the Pay Level (Cell) Basic Pay in the Revised Pay scale Next above Basic Pay after adding 3% increment Next above Basic Pay fixed as per pay matrix Amount of loss to the employee Actual increment rate % age
1 12 24900 25647 25600 47 2.81
1 26 37600 38728 38700 28 2.92
3 9 27600 28428 28400 28 2.89
3 16 34000 35020 35000 20 2.94
4 11 34300 35329 35300 29 2.91
4 22 47500 48925 48900 25 2.94
5 10 38100 39243 39200 43 2.88
5 20 51100 52633 52600 33 2.93
6 6 41100 42333 42300 33 2.91
6 9 44900 46247 46200 47 2.89

ILLUSTRATION – 2

In Level – 2, Cell – 2, the pay is shown as 20500. After giving one increment of 3% it should be 21115/- but the next cell is only 21000 (Level-2, Cell-3). Next stage should be 21115+633=21748 but the next cell is only 21700 (Level-2 Cell-4).

In Level – 6, Cell 14 should be 50500 + 1515 = 52015 whereas it is given only 52000.

From the above it can be safely concluded that

(i) Recommendation of the Pay Commission regarding increment rate is in contravention of the principle or policy enunciated by the 7th Pay Commission, Hence it constitutes an anomaly.

(ii) In many stages, eventhough the increment is shown as 3%, it is rounded off to the next below amount causing financial loss to the employees.

(iii) In the sixth CPC, while calculating increment, if the last digit is (one) or above, it used to be rounded off to next 10 (Ten). So in this Pay Matrix also if the amount is 10 (Ten) and above, it should be rounded off to the next above 100 (hundred).

(iv) Even if the difference may look small (in percentage) it will also have long term impact on the employees promotion inviting heavy financial loss. The following illustration will reveal it.

Illustration

1. Pay Level – 6

2. Cell (Stage) in the Pay Level – 8

3. Basic Pay in the Revised Scale – 44900

4. Actual Pay after adding 3% annual increment – 46247

5. Basic Pay fixed as per the Pay Matrix – 46200

6. Loss of amount to the employee in the increment – 47

7. Pay on promotion to next Level if fixed as per serial 4 above – 49000

8. Pay on promotion to the next level, if fixed as per serial – 5 above – 47600

9. Loss per month on promotion – 1400

Thus, for a loss of Rs.47/- only in the Annual increment, the employee will suffer a recurring loss of Rs.1400/- per month during his/her promotion to the next level and this loss will have cumulative effect on rest of the period of the service career with financial loss on Dearness Allowance (DA) and further promotions and also Pensionery benefits.

The above anomalies are to be rectified.

Dated :12.05.2017

Office Memorandum

Sub:- Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners, etc.

The undersigned is directed to say that the 7th Central Pay Commission (7th CPC), in its Report, recommended two formulations for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners. A Resolution No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated 04.08.2016 was issued by this Department indicating the decisions taken by the Government on the various recommendations of the 7th CPC on pensionary matters.

2.Based on the decisions taken by the Government on the recommendations of the 7th CPC, orders for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners in accordance with second Formulation were issued vide this Department’s OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016. It was provided in this O.M. that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016 of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners shall be determined by multiplying the pension/family pension as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the recommendations of the 6th CPC, by 2.57.

3.In accordance with the decision mentioned in this Department’s Resolution 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated 04.08.2016 and OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016, the feasibility of the first option recommended by 7th CPC has been examined by a Committee headed by Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare.

4. The aforesaid Committee has submitted its Report and the recommendations made by the Committee have been considered by the Government. Accordingly, it has been decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed. 50% of the notional pay as on 01.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016 as per the first Formulation. In the case of family pensioners who were entitled to family pension at enhanced rate, the revised family pension shall be 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 and shall be payable till the period up to which family pension at enhanced rate is admissible as per rules. The amount of revised pension/family pension so arrived at shall be rounded off to next higher rupee.

5.It has also been decided that higher of the two Formulations i,e. the pension/family pension already revised in accordance with this Department’s OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 or the revised pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 above, shall be granted to pre-2016 central civil pensioners as revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016. In cases where pension/family pension being paid w.e.f. 1.1.2016 in accordance with this Departments OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 happens to be more than pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 above, the pension/family pension already being paid shall be treated as revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016.

6. Instructions were issued vide this Department’s OM No. 45/86/97-P&PW(A) (iii) dated 10.02.1998 for revision of pension/ family pension in respect of Government servants who retired or died before 01.01.1986, by notional fixation of their pay in the scale of pay introduced with effect from 01.01.1986. The notional pay so worked out as on 01.01.1986 was treated as average emoluments/last pay for the purpose of calculation of notional pension/family pension as on 01.01.1986. The notional pension/family pension so arrived at was further revised with effect from 01.1996 and was paid in accordance with the instructions issued for revision of pension/family pension of pre-1996 pensioners/family pensioners in implementation of the recommendations of the 5th Central Pay Commission.

7. Accordingly, for the purpose of calculation of notional pay w.e.f. 1.1.2016 of those Government servants who retired or died before 01.01.1986, the pay scale and the notional pay as on 1.1.1986, as arrived at in terms of the instructions issued vide this Department’s OM 45/86/97-P&PW(A) dated 10.02.1998, will be treated as the pay scale and the pay of the concerned Government servant as on 1.1.1986. In the case of those Government servants who retired or died on or after 01.01.1986 but before 1.1.2016, the actual pay and the pay scale from which they retired or died would be taken into consideration for the purpose of calculation of the notional pay as on 1.1.2016 in accordance with para 4 above.

8.The minimum pension with effect from 01.01.2016 will be Rs. 9000/- per month (excluding the element of additional pension to old pensioners).

Delay in 7th CPC Allowances: Is any compensation on the way

Delay in 7th CPC Allowances: Is any compensation on the way: 

7th-Pay-Commisssion-latest-news

Committee on Allowances has concluded his exercise as the last meeting was held on 6th April, 2017 and the confirmation of the submission of report to Govt. has not yet available from authentic sources. Cabinet Secretary has already assured to JCM that he will put-up the report to the Cabinet for early approval. There is an indication that govt is considering for compensation to Central Government Employees for inordinate delay of implementation of the allowances as per recommendation of Seventh Central Pay Commission.
Source has decoded that the Government is planning to make the announcement for a Compensation on Allowances in lieu of delay in allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission. There are so many questions here and also have been analyzed to judge you on this matter.

When the allowances at the new rates will be implemented?

According to the earlier posts of  the Cabinet to adjudge on 7th CPC revised allowances before April 23 and the other hand the RBI is not in the mood to outlaw the govt to implement the revised allowances. Read the full article RBI is not against the HRA hike as per 7th CPC HRA; Analysis.

What is the crucial date of effect of allowances at the rate recommended by 7th Pay Commission and the committee of allowances?

Answer of this question is factual under two sides, first the demand of employees and the second the way of implementation of 7th CPC. The employees and their union are pressing hard on the implementation of revised allowances from the date of implementation of 7th CPC i.e. 01.01.2016. Whether the demand of employees union is illegitimate? Not fully, in view of the timing of constitution of the 7th CPC. The unions are blaming to the committee and the government for the delay.

The delay in implementation of 7th CPC was not from the employees side.

The constitution of the 7th CPC was notified vide the resolution dated 28th of February 2014 under the Chairmanship of Justice Shri Ashok Kumar Mathur, Shri Vivek Rae as full time member and Smt. Meena Aggarwal as Secretary, with the condition to give the report in 18 months. As per initial notification the report was to be submitted in the month of August 2015, but the commission got the extra 3 months for submission of report and finally the commission handed over the report to govt on Nov, 2015 after 3 months. Although, two to four months were enough to complete the other formality for implementation by implementation cell of finance ministry, but govt handed over the all exercise to a empowered committee. Lastly the govt has approved some recommendation of the 7th CPC for implementation to Central Government Employees on 25th July, 2016 after 8 months of receiving of report and the employees was entitled to get the arrears of revised basic pay from 01.01.2016 and new salary from the month of August, 2016.

What will be the effective date of revised allowance from 01.01.2016 or 01.08.2016 or the month after the approval of report of allowances committee?

As the employees union are demanding the effective date of allowances from 01.01.2016, is seems hard to be accepted by the govt. We knows the allowance in 6th CPC and previous CPCs were also not implemented retrospectively as the revised basic pay means the allowances were given from the date of approval/implementation of revised pay as per respective CPC.

Hence it is easily interpreted that the revised allowances will not be given from the date of revision of Basic Pay in 7th CPC i.e. 01.01.2016. Now the question arise here, what about the date of approval/implementation of 7th CPC to Central Government Employee by the Govt. Perhaps, the date can be 01st August, 2016. The all the facts says that the employees are eligible to get the revised/enhanced allowances from the date of approval of the 7th CPC as the withheld decision in the formulation of a committee by fully from the Govt. side. As the employee unions were objected on many issues like minimum pay, advances, allowances etc. but govt delayed only the allowances.

Whether govt will revised the allowances with retrospective effect?

To find the answer of the above question, the pay and allowances as per the 7th CPC norms should be analyzed as a summary. Here the lowest pay scale is taken to understand the difference between 6th CPC & 7th CPC Pay:-

The lowest Pay Scale was in the 6th CPC = PB 1 (5200-20200) & Grade Pay 1800

The employee in this scale was getting the following prior the 7th CPC on 01.01.2016 –

Basic Pay: Rs. 5200 + Grade Pay 1800 = Rs. 7000
(The pay for newly appointee was differ)

DA on 01.01.2016 = Rs. 8330
For X Group City
HRA – 2100
Tpt All – 600 + 714 = Rs. 1314
Total Gross Salary = 17430

The employee in this scale was eligible in the 7th CPC with effect from 01.01.2016 -

Basic Pay = Rs. 18000
HRA = Rs. 4320 and Tpt = 1350

Now

Difference in Basic Pay is Rs. 2670
Difference in Allowance (HRA only) is Rs. Rs.2220

As per above illustration the difference of revised basic pay and revised allowance (HRA) is nearly 85%. Means govt has saved 85% corpus of expenditure in enhancement of pay and allowances of Central Government Employee by delaying the approval of allowances. By this central government employees was loosing this amount since August, 2016. Hence it is also instituted that Govt employees are eligible for a compensation in situation of not getting the revised allowance from the date of implementation of 7th CPC i.e. August, 2016.

Union demand of revised allowance from 01.01.2016 may be persuaded by the compensation

As per sources indicated that the Committee to check the 7th CPC recommendation on allowances has given the importance the union demand to give the enhanced allowances from the date of 01.01.2016. A positive note given by the committee as per suggestion to the govt. to compensate the employees for the delay in decision regarding allowances. The sources has also indicated that the compensation will be given as monthly rate from Jan, 2016 or August, 2016 upto the date of approval/decision given by govt on revised allowances.

Conclusion: It is the matter of future that what, how much and when the revised allowances will be given to the Govt. employees? But it is fact that employees are eligible for the revised allowances from the August, 2016 and either the allowances must be given retrospectively or as compensation. Which type of days will coming to the Central Government Employees after a loss of revised allowances for 9 months and how the govt makes it as “Achhe Din” to their Govt employees or govt is following their logo “Sabka Saath Sabka Vikaas”.

7th Central Pay Commission recommendations -amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules

No. AB-14017/13//2016-Estt(RR)-Pt
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel P.G & pensions
Department of Personnel and Training

North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 18.01.2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations -amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments OM No AB.14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR) dated 24/03/2009 regarding amendment of Service Rules/ Recruitment Rules in pursuance of Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations. The revised pay structure recommended by 6th CPC and approved by the Government included a number of ‘merged grades’ with a common Pay Band and Grade Pay.

2. In order to regulate the service rendered in the pre-revised scale where there have been merger of more than one grade into one with a single grade pay, it was advised that a Note to the following effect may be inserted under relevant columns in the Schedule of RRs and under relevant provisions in Service Rules.

“Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission. For purposes of appointment on deputation/ absorption basis, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement grade without any upgradation.”

3. It has been observed that after implementation of 7th CPC there are only a few cases of merger/upgradation of pay scale. However in cases where merger/ upgradation of pay is recommended in the 7th CPC and the same has been accepted, there is a need to provide a Note on similar lines as above with relevant changes i.e. the date 1.1.2006 needs to be replaced with 1.1.2016 and “6th CPC” is to be replaced with “7th CPC”. In other cases the Note as referred above need not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs where no merger/ upgradation are involved as per 7th CPC recommendations.
