PENSION FUND REGULATORY AND DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY

INTRODUCTION
As per Chapter VI, Sec 20 (2b) of the PFRDA act, 2013 it has been provided that withdrawals, not exceeding twenty-five percent (25%) of the contribution made by the subscriber, may be permitted from the individualpension account subject to the conditions, such as purpose, frequency and limits as may be specified by the regulations. In order to finalise the regulations for withdrawals, it becomes imperative to develop the formal aspects of the permitted withdrawals allowed under the Act for the benefit of NPS subscribers.

EXISTING EXIT / WITHDRAWAL GUIDELINES UNDER NATIONAL PENSION SYSTEM (NPS)
The current exit / withdrawal guidelines under NPS are framed in such a manner that the subscriber has a long period of accumulation of corpus for providing him with a decent accumulated pension wealth when he retires or he moves out of the regular work routine due to age. Also, it lets the subscriber have the freedom to move out of the scheme at any point of time, irrespective of cause or reason which determines the complete exit from the scheme.

The following are the current rules/guidelines for withdrawals under NPS as approved by PFRDA:
a) Exit from NPS upon attaining the age of Normal superannuation (for govt. employees only) or upon attaining the age of 60 years (for all subscribers other than govt. employees): At least 40% of the accumulatedpension wealth of the subscriber needs to be mandatorily utilized for purchase of an annuity providing for the monthly pension of the subscriber and the balance is paid as a lump sum payment to the subscriber.

b) Exit from NPS before attaining the age of Normal superannuation (for govt. employees only) or before attaining the age of 60 years (for all subscribers other than govt. employees): At least 80% of the accumulatedpension wealth of the subscriber needs to be utilized for purchase of an annuity providing for the monthly pensionof the subscriber and the balance is paid as a lump sum payment to the subscriber.

c) Upon Death: The entire accumulated pension wealth (100%) would be paid to the nominee / legal heir of the subscriber.

For Swavalamban withdrawals under (a) & (b) in the previous page, there is an overriding condition on the lump sum payment payable due to which the entire accumulated pension wealth would be annuitised in case if the monthly pension obtained by using the 40%/80% of the pension wealth is below Rs.1000/- per month. Also, these exit/withdrawal rules as applicable to NPS can be modified/altered from time to time by the Authority as the NPS progresses.

BACKGROUND
The withdrawal of 25% of accumulated contributions under NPS is in addition to the withdrawal permitted at the time of exiting from NPS by the subscriber as specified above. The subscriber can continue to contribute in the scheme while using such withdrawal facility. These guidelines shall determine the circumstances under which the NPS subscriber can avail such withdrawal functionality under different time frames and thereby putting certain limits to which shall be adhered by him/her.

The guidelines are framed taking into the purpose and object of NPS i.e., to ensure a decent accumulated pensionwealth in the accounts of the subscribers at the time of exit.

FEEDBACK /COMMENT PERIOD

The Feedback /Comments on this exposure draft received till 15th February, 2014 would be considered for evaluation by PFRDA. The decision of PFRDA on all and any matters related to the subject matter is final and binding on all stakeholders.

PROPOSED GUIDELINES FOR WITHDRAWAL OF 25 % OF ACCUMULATED CONTRIBUTIONS BY NPS SUBSCRIBERS

As per Chapter VI, Sec 20 (2b) of the PFRDA act, 2013 it has been provided that withdrawals, not exceeding twenty-five percent (25%) of the contribution made by the subscriber, may be permitted from the individualpension account subject to the conditions, such as purpose, frequency and limits as may be specified by the regulations. As the decision in this regard has to form part of the regulations to be made under Sec 52 of PFRDA Act, we need to arrive at a decision on the matter purpose, frequency and limits of such withdrawals which would be allowed.

Posts examining the various aspects of the probable needs and duration, following aspects have been proposed in respect of the aforesaid guidelines:

(a) Purpose: This withdrawal may be treated as partial withdrawal and whereby the subscriber can withdraw not exceeding twenty-five percent (25%) of the contribution made by the subscriber, may be permitted from theindividual pension account for any of the following purposes only:

i) For Higher education of his/her children including a legally adopted child.
ii) For the marriage of his/her children, including a legally adopted child.
iii) For the purchase/construction of residential house or flat. However, if the subscriber already owns a residential house or flat, the same is not allowed as a ground for the withdrawal.
iv) Treatment for prescribed illnesses – suffered by subscriber or his legally wedded spouse and children. For this purpose, the prescribed illness referred above consists of hospitalization and treatment for the following diseases/illnesses:

1. Cancer
2. Kidney Failure (End Stage Renal Failure)
3. Primary Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension
4. Multiple Sclerosis
5. Major Organ Transplant
6. Coronary Artery Bypass Graft
7. Aorta Graft Surgery
8. Heart Valve Surgery
9. Stroke
10. Myocardial Infarction (First Heart Attack)
11. Coma
12. Total blindness
13. Paralysis

b) Limits: It has been proposed that there should be limitation on eligibility as well as the maximum limit for eachwithdrawal that can be permitted till the person stays invested in National Pension System. We propose the following eligibility criteria and limit for availing the benefit:
1. The subscriber should have been in NPS for at least ten years and contributing to the scheme.
2. Subscriber can withdraw accumulations not exceeding twenty-five percent (25%) of the contributions made by him and standing to his credit in his NPS account, as on the date of application for withdrawal.

c) Frequency:
It is recommended that the subscriber may be allowed to withdraw at the most three (3) times from the scheme during the tenure and should have a gap of at least 5 years before availing the withdrawal facility for the nexttime. However, the mandatory requirement of 5 years gap between two successive permitted withdrawals would not be applicable in case of “treatment for above prescribed illnesses”.
We are proposing the above frequency in order to make sure that the subscriber should be left with a decent and considerable accumulated pension wealth at the time of superannuation/age of 60 years enabling him to purchase sustainable annuity.

The request for withdrawal should be sent along with relevant document through the Nodal Office/POP/Aggregator to Central Record Keeping Agency for processing of the withdrawal claim.

Merger of 50 percent DA may soon be considered by Central Government –Sources

Merger of 50 percent DA may soon be considered by Central Government –Sources

Sources close to the Central Government Employees Federations told that Merger of 50% DA will soon be considered by Central Government before the budget session of Parliament in February 2014. According to the sources, the central government is likely to consider the central government employees  demand for merging of 50 % DA, for the reason that the DA will be crossing 100% level after January 2014.

The rate of dearness allowance to be paid to govt servants has been increasing consistently due to the rise in the prices of essential commodities for the past two years. In 2011 the rate of DA was at 50 % level. Since then all the Federation demanded the central government to merge the 50 Percent DA with basic Pay. But the government did not accept this demand to merge the DA with basis pay, as it was not recommended by sixth CPC.


The demand would be considered in view of parliament elections
But federations kept on demanding the government that raising dearness allowance alone will not help to compensate the alarming rate of price rice. So they urged the government to consider their demand favorably. It is believed that after the defeat in the election of four state legislative councils, the UPA government has decided to reconsider about its decision on the issues which directly affects the common public. The high command of the ruling party thought that the reason for their defeat in the state election is mainly because of their government failed to contain the price rise. The gap between common public and UPA government has been considerably increased. To correct these failures the UPA government decides to do something to attract the voters.

After announcing the government’s proposal to constitute the 7th pay commission, the community of central government employees has been convinced to have soft view on this government. Further the 50 lakh central government employees would be made happy if the 50% DA is merged with Basic Pay. It is told that , as the central government staff association and federations demanding it very seriously, in case the government decides go with this demand, there will be around one crore voters will be in favour of UPA government. So the government may consider the demand of merging of 50% DA with basic Pay in view of forthcoming Parliament elections.

Allowances will have no impact on merging DA with basic Pay
The sources, associated with National Council JCM, said that the government initially was not willing to consider this demand as some allowance and advances have been raised by 25% whenever the DA crosses 50% level as per the sixth CPC recommendation. But federations insisted that the allowances, which are raised to 25 % level when DA crosses 50%, will have no impact on merging DA with basic pay. The only allowance will have an increase when Basic Pay increases are HRA. No other allowances will be increased and other entitlement of the respective Grade Pay will not be revised as the 50% DA to be merged will be kept under separate component like it was treated in 5CPC as Dearness Pay. “There is no need to worry about financial implications, as the 50% DA will be paid by just changing its nomenclature as Dearness Pay”, said sources.

50% DA merger to be declared before DA crosses 100%
Further, it has been informed that it is good enough for the government to announce its decision before declaring the next additional installment of DA. Because the AICPIN for Industrial workers for the Month of December 2013 is awaited to determine the rate of dearness allowance to be paid from January 2014.The result of last 11 months AICPIN shows that DA will definitely be raised by 10 % from existing 90% level. So the rate of DA will be 100% with effect from 1st January 2014. After the DA increased to 100%, the demand for 50% DA merger will have to change its avatar. Probably the demand would be for 100% DA merger. So the federations expect the government may consider 50% DA merger soon.

However, decision if any in this regard should be taken before the announcement of election for parliament. It is expected that election announcement for parliament will be made by the end of February 2014. Before that,  the announcement of 50% DA merger is expected from central government.

EPFO: Minimum monthly pension of Rs 1,000 to be a reality this month

EPFO: Minimum monthly pension of Rs 1,000 to be a reality this month

Ahead of Lok Sabha polls, the government is likely to approve this month a proposal that will entitle formal sector workers a minimum monthly pension of Rs 1,000, immediately benefiting 27 lakh pensioners.

Those who get less than Rs 1,000 a month include 22 lakh member pensioners and 5 lakh widows as on March 31, 2013. There are about 44 lakh pensioners.

"The Labour Ministry's revised proposal for minimum pension of Rs 1,000 per month was submitted to the Finance Ministry last week, and is likely to be approved this month," said an official source.

The ministry's proposal to assure minimum pension of Rs 1,000 under the Employees' Pension Scheme 1995 (EPS-95), run by the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), is pending for a long time.

Earlier, the ministry had proposed that the government should increase its subsidy on the scheme from 1.16 percent of the basic wages to 1.79 percent to assure the minimum pension amount of Rs 1,000 per month.

However, it did not find favour with the Finance Ministry as this would have resulted in permanent increase in subsidy provided by government.

The Labour Ministry in its revised proposal has asked the Finance Ministry to provide for around Rs 1,300 crore additional amount every year for the purpose, and indicated that this amount can reduce over a period of time with more members subscribing to the EPS-95.

Besides, the government is in the process of raising the basic wages ceiling under the Employees Provident Fund Scheme to Rs 15,000 from existing Rs 6,500.

All those employees getting basic wages - including basic pay and dearness allowance - of more than Rs 6,500 per month, are not covered under the social security schemes run by EPFO.

The Finance Ministry did not agree with the hike in pension subsidy to 1.79 percent of basic wages as the proposed increase in wage ceiling would have resulted in perpetual burden on the exchequer.

EPFO has a corpus of around Rs 5 lakh crore including around Rs 1.7 lakh crore in its pension fund. It has a subscriber base of around 5 crore and all of them are covered under the EPS-95.

The increase in wage ceiling under the scheme run by EPFO is important as it would bring in around 50 lakh more workes and increase the flow mandatory savings.

Expected DA from Jan 2014 - Additional DA from Jan 2014 likely to hike by 11%

Expected DA from Jan 2014 - Additional DA from Jan 2014 likely to hike by 11% 
 
The one more and another additional Dearness allowance to Central Government employees and Pensioners from Jan 2014 will be announced in the middle of March 2014. 
 
This is too early and predict the enhancement in percentage of Dearness allowance with effect from January 2014. The prediction and announcement of this hike make us cool, that the additional DA will jump to 101% and another word, an additional DA would be 11%. 
But, still we have to wait for one more month, that the magic number of AICPIN would be increased by 3% and more..! From the existing level of the AICPIN is now 243, if it becomes 246 in end of December 2013, out prediction will be right…or otherwise certainly we would cross century in total Dearness allowance… 
 
The table describes the prediction of additional DA from Jan 2014:

7th CPC Pay Scale – Minimum wage & Pay fixation forumala for 7th CPC worked out by COC Karnataka

7th CPC Pay Scale – Minimum wage & Pay fixation forumala for 7th CPC worked out by COC Karnataka

Minimum wage & Pay fixation formula for 7th CPC worked out

Providing proper minimum wage of Rs 27000/- for CG Employees including that of GDS employees and pay fixation formula for 7th CPC worked out .

Providing proper minimum wage of Rs 27000/- for CG Employees including that of GDS employees and pay fixation formula:

The staff side of the JCM had given representation demanding Rs 10,000/- as minimum wage for Central Government Employees. The 6th CPC in its report vide para no 2.2.15 had calculated a minimum wage of Rs 5478/- today if we are calculate the minimum wage it should be more than Rs 21,000/- apart from HRA and other allowances. Hence there is three times increase in actual prices calculated by the 6th CPC and the current prices. The current wages of the CG Employees should be doubled at least including that of GDS.

The most comprehensive criteria for covering all the basic needs were evolved by the 15th Indian Labour Conference (ILC) in 1957 for fixing minimum wages. The norms are that a need-based minimum wage for a single worker should cover all the needs of a worker’s family consisting of a spouse and two children.

The food requirement was to be 2,700 calories, 65 grams of protein and around 45-60 grams of fat as recommended by Dr Wallace Aykroyd for an average Indian adult of moderate activity. Dr Aykroyd pointed out that  animal proteins, such as milk, eggs, fish, liver and meat, are biologically more efficient than vegetable proteins and suggested that they should form at least one-fifth of the total protein.

Dr Aykroyd worked on nutrition for nearly 30 years and was director of the Nutrition Division, Food and Agriculture Organisation, United Nations. In 1935, he was appointed Director of the Government’s Nutritional Research Centre in India, situated in Coonoor in the south. The 15th ILC further resolved that clothing requirements should be based on per capita consumption of 18 yards per annum, which gives 72 yards per annum for the average worker’s family. For housing, the rent corresponding to the minimum area provided under the government’s industrial housing schemes was to be taken. Fuel, lighting and other items of expenditure were to constitute an additional 20% of the total minimum wage.

The Supreme Court upheld these criteria in the case of Unichoy vs State of Kerala in 1961. In the later Raptakos Brett Vs Workmen case of 1991, the SC went one step further, and held that besides the five components enunciated by the 15th ILC, minimum wages should include a sixth component, amounting to 25% of the total minimum wage, to cover children’s education, medical treatment, recreation, festivals and ceremonies. The SC also observed that a wage structure including the above six components would be “nothing more than minimum wage at subsistence level” which the workers must get “at all times and under all circumstances”.

Minimum Salary-Analysis &Recommendations para 2.2.15

The Commission, however, agrees that the norms set by the 15th International Labour Conference (ILC) are appropriate for computing minimum salary. It is also observed that the minimum salary is applicable at the time a person joins the Government which will usually be at a young age when a person may be just married and will not have responsibility of parents or many children. Accordingly, the family unit for minimum salary can only be taken as three.

The Minimum Salary should be based on 6 units not three units as per 6th CPC calculation. As both parents and two children are depending on the salary of Government servant apart from spouse. the additional burden the employees will carry after a few years of service as his parents would have retired from service and are wholly dependent on him also his children would have stepped into school / college level, even small baby requirements are much unlike in the past years, the hence the minimum wage he gets will not compensate with the family financial burden Hence the whole calculations needs a undergo a drastic change in next CPC taking into account of 6 units rather than 3 units.

The Sixth Central Pay Commission has recommended a minimum wage of Rs 6600/- per month against the demand of Rs 10,000/- per month as worked out by Staff side of JCM. Today the minimum need based wage works out to Rs 21,000/ per month+ HRA+ allowances. The general minimum expenses per month for a family of four members are as follows when a Government servant joins the duty with two small children:

a) Vegetables Rs 3000/-
b) Food Grains /Groceries Rs 7000/-.
c) House rent single room Rs 6000/-
d) Clothing Rs 3000/-
e) Children education and their expenses Rs 2000/-
f) Electricity Chargers Rs 800/-
g) Water Charges Rs 250/-
h) Transportation charges Rs 1000/-
i) TV cable rent Rs 300/-
j) Medical Expenses Rs 500/-
k) Mobile expenses Rs 250/-
l) Cooking Gas Rs 450/-
m) Recreation charges Rs 500/-
n) Personal expenses Rs 1000/-

Total Rs 26500/-Hence minimum wage works out to Rs 27,000/-

 The expenses will increase as the age of Government servant goes up and family responsibility will increase as he has to educate the children in professional courses, marriage of his children has to be performed, his medical expenses will increase, his parents will stay with him and now there are quite dependant on the Government servant for their lively hood. As such the salary should be more to meet his expenses. The Government is a model employer hence the wages should be provided with the needs.

Table: Fixation of Minimum wage as on 1.1.2006 as per 15 ILC norms as per Table 2.2.1 of the 6th compare minimum wage should be three times the 6th recommendations.

** Additional Expense at the rate of 25% includes expenditure towards education, Medical treatment, housing, recreation, festivals etc.

# Has been taken as Rs.400 because separate allowances for education, medical Treatment and housing exist in the Government. Consequently, only the expenditure

Towards recreation & festivals need to be taken in account.
^ Being the license fee chargeable for government accommodation at an average rate of 3% of the basic pay.

Total minimum wage is Rs 17225+ HRA Rs 7000/- + Transportation Allowance Rs 2500/-= Rs 26725 that is Rs 27,000/-.

The fixation of minimum basic pay of Rs 21000/- is taking into the account of minimum skill and education requirement as 10th Standard as prescribed by the 6th CPC. As the education requirement is more such as Diploma in Engineering or Degree in Science or Commerce, then the minimum basic pay should be Rs 40,000/- (8700+4200) X 3 = Rs 39,000/-. For Engineering Graduates and Master Degree it should be Rs 65,000/- .
The pay scales should start with a minimum basic pay including Grade Pay of Rs 21,000/- to end with 2, 10,000 with a ratio of 1:10 of minimum scale and maximum scale. Since government is a model employer they should provide minimum wages as per the 15 ILO conference and other wages as per the educational qualification & skill requirement of the job.

The multiplying factor is calculated as below:
The existing basic pay + Grade pay + DA 100% + weightage of 100% ( that is the difference between the actual price rise and the DA paid) that is the multiplying factor works out to three.

Note: The actual price rise is over 200% the DA is only 90%.
Or

The existing basic pay + grade pay+ DA 100%+DA merger = Net wage + weightage of 70% (that is the difference between the actual price rise and the DA paid).

The pay scales should have a multiplying factor of three, that means the existing pay scales and pay (basic pay + GP) should be multiplied by three. The pay scales arrived should not have any bunching of basic pay as done in the 5th CPC. The time scales should last for more than 10 years so that there is no stagnation.

The concept of fair wages has been deprived to CG Employees. Usually pay commissions had adopted a multiplying factor of 3.2 to 3.8 to arrive at the new scales compared to earlier scales. But the VI CPC adopted conversion factor of about 2.6 at the lowest where as it was about 3.6 at the highest scale. By this method well established ration 1:12 between the lowest scale and highest scale was disturbed by the VI CPC.

The minimum pay & band pay fixed by the 6th compared all other pay commissions for example a new recruit for the post of LDC his pay is Rs 5200+ 1900 = Rs 7100/- + allowances, that should have been actually Rs 3050 multiplied by 3.6 times which works out to Rs 11000/- .

In case of a Graduate or Diploma holder as per 6th + 4200= Rs 13500/- + allowances, that should have been actually Rs 5000 multiplied by 3.6 times which works out to Rs 18000/- .

In case of a Master degree holder as per 6th 4800= Rs 14100/- + allowances, that should have been actually Rs 6500 multiplied by 3.6 times which works out to Rs 23000/- .

Hence the justification of multiplying factor of three is justified.  The ratio between the lowest and highest scales should not more than 1:10

III PAY COMMISSION VS IV PAY COMMISSION GROUP D,C and B

IV CPC PAY SCALES VS V CPC PAY SCALES

Comparison of pay scales of the 4th CPC , 5th CPC and 6th CPC

SIXTH CPC PAY STRUCTURE & PAY STRUCTURE FOR NEXT (VII) PAY COMMISSION DEMANDED

The existing basic pay should be multiplied by factor three, so that there is no bunching of basic pay. The existing GP of Rs 2000/- and Rs 2800/- should be removed. Likewise there are GP of Rs 5400/- in both PB-2 and PB-3 one of them is to be removed.

There are 34 scales recommended by the 6th Pay has been not in existence, as such 30 GP are right now available.

With the merger of pay scale from S9 to S12 into Grade Pay of Rs 4200/-.

There are many pay scales which was merged into single GP of Rs 4200/- which has created anomalies, the promotions have been made in same grade pay without financial benefits.

There should be time scale rather than grade pay system, these time scales should long enough.
