Central Government women employees can get 730 days leave for child care: Supreme Court

Central Government women employees can get 730 days leave for child care: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Tuesday held that a woman employee of central government can get uninterrupted leave for two years for child care, which also includes needs like examination and sickness. A bench of justices SJ Mukhopadhaya and V Gopala Gowda set aside the order of Calcutta High Court which had held that Central Civil Services (Leave) Rules do not permit uninterrupted CCL(Child Care Leave) for 730 days.

“On perusal of circulars and Rule 43-C, it is apparent that a woman government employee having minor children below 18 years can avail CCL for maximum period of 730 days i.e. during the entire service period for taking care of upto two children. The care of children is not for rearing the smaller child but also to look after any of their needs like examination, sickness etc,” the bench said.

It said that CCL even beyond 730 days can be granted by combining other leave if due and the finding of the High Court was based neither on Rule 43-C nor on guidelines issued by the central government. The court passed the order on a petition filed by a woman government employee Kakali Ghosh challenging government’s decision not to grant her leave of 730 for preparing her son for secondary/senior examinations.
She had first approached Central Administrative Tribunal Calcutta for getting leave. The tribunal had ordered in her favour but the High Court reversed the order after which she moved the apex court.

The apex court set aside the High Court’s order. “We set aside the impugned judgement dated September 18, 2012 passed by the Division Bench of Calcutta High Court, Circuit Bench at Port Blair and affirm the judgement and order dated April 30, 2012 passed by the Tribunal with a direction to the respondents to comply with the directions issued by the Tribunal within three months from the date of receipt/ production of this judgement,” it said.

7th Pay Commission Report and the Need for Timeliness

7th Pay Commission Report and the Need for Timeliness

Background of the 7th Pay Commission

The 7th pay commission report – when is it going to be submitted?
The announcement about the 7th pay commission report came out on September the 25th of 2013. This pay commission unlike the 6th pay commission was set up well in advance. This became possible due to significant efforts of various organisations, union lists and the finance commission report. Announcements say that the 7th pay commission will be implemented from 1.1.2016 and it will take approximately 18 months time for the report to be submitted.

Recently, the 7th pay commission Chairman and the members gave out a public statement on 4.2.2014 and after that on 22.2.2014 the important 7th cpc terms and references were released. Now, the thought that floats on everyone’s mind is whether the 7th pay commission report will be submitted within the 18 months time period and will the employees be able to get the benefits along with their salary from 1.1.2016.
Recently, in the Lok Shaba during the question and answer session, it was pointed out that no specific time limit can be specified as of now for the implementation of the 7th pay commission. However, the finance ministry is now recruiting people for the 7th pay commission pay cell on deputation basis. This is a good attempt which boosts our confidence in the fact that the 7th pay commission will be put into effect on time.

Reports of the Earlier Pay Commissions

If the employees get the benefits of the 7th pay commission along with our salary on 1.1.2016, then, this will be the first time we are given the pay commission benefits without arrears. I am providing a link containing reports about when the previous pay commissions were set and when they were implemented.

Pay Commission
Date of Appointment
Date of submission of report
Financial impact(Rs. In crores)
Time
First Pay Commission May, 1946 May, 1947 N.A 1 YEAR
Second Pay Commission August, 1957 August, 1959 39.62 2 YEARS
Third Pay Commission April, 1970 March, 1973 144.60 3 YEARS (aprx)
Fourth Pay Commission June, 1983 3 reports submitted in June, 1986; Dec. 1986 and May, 1987 1282 4 YEARS(aprx)
Fifth Pay Commission April, 1994 January, 1997 17,000 3YEARS (aprx)
Sixth pay commission July 2006 March 2008
18 months

Arrears of the 6th Pay Commission :- When you see the timetable above, you can understand that none of the previous pay commissions were implemented on time and without the payment of arrears. When the 6th pay commission was implemented, the government paid a huge amount as arrears in two installments. This impacted the economy considerably and caused changes in inflation rate and GDP. This shocking fact was revealed by the 13th finance committee report.

The Benefits of the Timely Implementation of the 7th Pay Commission :- What benefits will the employees get if the 7th pay commission is implemented on 1.1.2016? Let us have a look.
Firstly, all the allowances and benefits can be got on 1.1.2016. When the benefits are paid as arrears the employees will not get some of the allowances due to exclusion.
Secondly, the government will not have to pay a huge amount as arrears and thereby can avoid economic burden.

Thirdly, if a National Anomaly Committee is set up and the shortcomings of the 7th pay commission are corrected immediately, employees can receive the benefits easily. We have to note that several points mentioned the anomaly committee report of the 6th pay commission still remain problematic and uncorrected.

Fourthly, let us have a look at the elements of ACP and MACP. Like the ACP and MACP, the financial up gradation is going to be introduced in the 7th Pay Commission; the issues that may arise due to this have to be resolved in a timely manner so that everyone may be benefitted by it. In the 5th pay commission, the time limit for promotion through ACP remained at 12 years, and in the 6th pay commission the time limit for promotions through MACP remained at 10 years. In the 5th pay commission, a new method of promotion through hierarchy was introduced. In the 6th pay commission promotions happened through grade pay structure.

The main aim of introducing ACP and MACP is to make sure that an employee gets minimal promotion at least thrice in his life time of service. If this is the case, the minimal service period of an employee should be at least 30 years. But presently, employees are appointed even at the age of 37 and so their service period is just 23 years. Such problems have to be carefully considered well in advance and solved before the 7th pay commission is implemented.

Let us believe that the 7th pay commission will be the first arrears-free pay commission and implemented on time as per the guidelines of the 13th finance commission.

Estimated 7th Pay Commission pay scales as on 01.01.2016

Estimated 7th Pay Commission pay scales as on 01.01.2016
Even as the 7th Pay Commission was constituted recently by Government for revision of Pay and allowances of Central Government Employees, Railway Employees and Defence Personnels, wide spread speculations on projected 7th Pay Commission pay scales are already going on. Blogs that provide Central Government Employees news and information have already started estimating possible 7th CPC pay scales based on different ideas.
GConnect.in was the first site that launched 6th Pay Commission Pay, Pension and arrears Calculator which received atmost popularity among Central Government Employees and CG Pensioners.
In respect of revised Pay and allowances of 7th Pay Commission also GConnect would come up with similar pay and pension calculators.

As a precursor, we thought of estimating 7th Pay Commission pay bands and grade pays based on the same methods adopted by Govt for determining 6th CPC revised pay Scales from the pre-revised (5th CPC) pay scales
Before estimation of 7th CPC Pay Scales let us have a look at the 6th CPC Pay Bands and Grade Pay Structure

Multiplication Factor of 1.86 adopted to for revision of Pay on implementation of 6th CPC :

While implementing 6th Pay Commission Government decided to adopt a multiplication factor of 1.86 for most of the pre-revised pay Scales to determine the revised pay in band of an employee
The 6th CPC revised pay in pay band of an employee was determined by multiplying the pre-revised basic pay drawn as on 01.01.2006 with 1.86 ( Of course, some of the pre-revised pay scales at higher level was revised by multiplying a factor more than 1.86).
This multiplying factor 1.86 was arrived at by taking in to account following components of pre-revised pay received by an employee prior to 01.01.2006.
Component
Multifplication Factor
Component A – Pre-revised Basic Pay
1
Component B – Dearness Pay (50% of pre-revised Basic Pay)
0.50
Component C – 24% Dearness Allowance on pre-revised basic pay and D.P prior to 01.01.2006
0.36 (24% on factors 1+0.5 taken for B.P and D.P)
Total Multiplication Factor
1.86

Estimation of Multiplication Factor to determine 7th Pay Commission revised Pay Scales and initial pay in pay band for each pay band :
By Adopting the same method followed by the Government to decide 6th CPC multiplication factor, the following Multiplication Factor has been arrived at for determining 7th Pay Commission revised Pay Scales and initial pay in pay band for each pay band as on 01.01.2016
Component
Multiplication Factor
Component A and B – Pay in pay band and Grade Pay as on 01.01.2016
1
Component C – 124 % Dearness Allowance on Pay in pay band and Grade Pay (** See the Note Below)
1.24
Total Multiplication Factor
2.24
** Note : DA as on 1st January 2014 is 100%. So DA as on 1st January 2016 has been conservatively estimated to be 124 % (6% increase for each 6 months period)
Estimation of 7th Pay Commission Grade Pay Structure
As we all know, there was no uniform correlation between Grade Pay and Pay in Pay band in the 6th CPC Pay Band Structure. So the ratio between the present grade pay and starting pay in the pay band of particular grade pay group was taken as the factor to estimate the 7th CPC grade pay.
For example Ratio of 6th CPC Grade pay of Rs. 8700 to starting pay (Rs.37400) in that grade pay group is 0.2327. This factor is multiplied with 7th CPC starting pay (Rs.83780) to get the equivalent 7th CPC grade pay of Rs.19500. Wherever this factor exceeded 0.35, the same was fixed as 0.35.

List of Allowances and Advances to be increased by 25% from 1.1.2011

List of Allowances and Advances to be increased by 25% from 1.1.2011
100% D.A from January 2014 – Some Allowances and Advances Rise by 25%
The Fifth Central Pay Commission had recommended uniform neutralization of DA at 100% to employees at all levels and increase in DA calculation too, according to the 12 monthly average of AICPIN for Industrial Workers (1982=100) as on 1st January 1996, of 306.33.

The Linking Factor of 303.33 has now changed to 115.76. This was calculated as 4.63 in the 4th CPC.
It was due to this change that the Dearness Allowance has increased in recent years. The 6th Pay Commission had promptly calculated it and said that the true impact of price rise and inflation would only then be known.

It was also mentioned in the recommendations made by the 6th CPC that each time the Dearness Allowance touched 50%, certain Allowances and Advances should also be raised by 25%.

It is of common knowledge that according to these recommendations, when D.A touched 50% on 01.01.2011, DOPT issued orders to increase it by 25%.

Since the DA is calculated on the basis of price rise and inflation, this 25% raise was given in order to make it uniformly applicable to all the other Allowances and Advances. The Allowances and Advances mentioned in this are the Children’s Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy and Festival Advance.

As of now, the Central Government employee is entitled to claim 15,000 per annum per child under the Children’s Education Allowance and Hostel Subsidy. An increase of 25% would mean that the amount would rise to Rs. 18,750 per year. Similarly, there are chances that the Festival Advance would increase to Rs. 4700. These could be confirmed only after the DOPT makes its official announcements.
The list mentioned below is explanatory and given in detail, along with explanations.

Projected Dearness Allowance From May 2014 - Government Servants

Projected DA From May 2014

Projected DA From May 2014 -PROJECTED D.A. FROM MAY, 2014 By Sri pannvalan

The AICPI-IW (1960=100) for January, 2014 was 237 and for February, 2014, the index stood at 238.
As per the present trend in retail inflation, the index may remain unchanged at 238 for March, 2014 too. If it happens, the D.A. will fall to 97.05%, from the existing level of 99.90%.

Even if the index records a modest rise of 1 point and touches 239 for March, 2014, yet there will be a downfall and the revised D.A. will be only 97.35%.

When the central government employees are getting D.A. of 100% on their Basic Pay, Grade Pay and Transport Allowance effective 01-01-2014, it is regrettable that our D.A. that is already below this 100% mark has started its downward journey (D.A of Central government employees will be at 100% till 30-06-2014 and our new D.A. from May, 2014 will be in force till 31-08-2014).

For retaining the D.A. at the present level of 99.90%, the index must increase by 10 points in March, 2014 (touching 248 points), registering an inflation of 4.20% in one month (i.e.50.40% annualized), which is ruled out.

D.A. of bank staff was merged at 2836 points in 1960=100 series, when 9th BPS was implemented from 01-11-2007.  Despite merger of D.A. at a higher level (2836 points) than the central government staff (2642 points), the Dearness Allowance of bank staff is less than that of Central Government staff, because of faulty construction of pay scales and lesser D.A. compensation per slab for the bank staff.

Moreover, if the central government employees get 50% of their present D.A. merged with their Basic Pay, as an interim measure, the difference will widen further. I shudder to think of the situation after the 7th CPC is fully implemented.

Will UFBU wake up at least now?
