Corrected version of Draft of JCM’s Memorandum to be submitted to 7th CPC

Corrected version of Draft of JCM’s Memorandum to be submitted to 7th CPC – Please give your valuable suggestions
PREFACE

The 6th CPC submitted its report in March 2008. It made major changes in the structure of pay scales by introducing the concept of Pay band and Grade Pay. Their recommendations were implemented with effect from 1.1.2006. There were plethora of anomalies, common as well as department specific. None of these anomalies were removed despite several rounds of discussions.

1.2. On 1.1.2011, the percentage of DA entitlement crossed over 50%. Since the erosion of the value of wages by that time had become enormous, the demand for merger of DA was raised by the employees. Some of them demanded setting up of the 7th CPC on the plea that the residency period of any wage structure must not exceed 5 years, especially in the background that the pay revision in most of the PSUs takes place at the interval of 5 years.They also pointed out that unlike the 5th CPC the 6th CPC had not suggested as to when the next wage revision must be attempted. The Government ignored those demands, despite well knowing that the inflation and abnormal price rise of food and other essential commodities had reduced the purchasing capacity of the government employees significantly.

1.3 Government refused to discuss these demands either bilaterally or at the forum of JCM. A section of the employees went on a day’s strike action, while the industrial workers in the Railways and Defence took the strike ballot. Climate of confrontation emerged. Taking note of these developments, Government in September 2013 announced the setting up of the 7th CPC. The Standing Council of JCM, National Council met on 24th October, 2013 to discuss various issues connected with the finalisation of the terms of reference of the Commission. The following suggestions were made for incorporation in the Terms of Reference (TOR):

The Commission should have a labour representative.
  • DA (the extent of percentage as on 1.1.2014) to be merged and treated as pay for all purposes.
  • To include Gramin Dak Sewaks within the ambit of 7th CPC.
  • To grant Interim Relief @ 25% of Pay + GP.
  • To ensure that the 7th CPC recommendation will be effective from 1.1.2014.
  • To ensure parity in pension for all pensioners as per the 5th CPC recommendation.
1.4 In spite of holding out assurance, no further discussions were held. The Government unilaterally notified the Terms of Reference. The Staff Side has now submitted a memorandum to the 7th Central Pay Commission on the twin issues, i.e. the need to grant interim relief and merger of Dearness Allowance.

1.5 It will be the endeavour of the Staff Side to bring about commonality of approach on all issues concerning the wages, allowances and other relevant matters, as was the case on the previous occasions. We are hopeful that all the Associations/ Federations/Unions of Central Government employees will endorse this memorandum, prepared by the Staff Side, National Council, JCM on their behalf. No doubt they will submit separate memoranda on department specific issues.

1.6 With this introduction, we submit this memorandum to the 7th CPC for their consideration.

Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS): About a reader’s Opinion

Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS): About a reader’s Opinion 

The Tamil newspaper Dinamalar recently published an opinion of one of its readers about Performance Related Incentive Scheme.

According to the write-up, based on the recommendations by the Sixth Pay Commission, the scheme had been introduced more than five years ago in select central government departments like atomic energy, space research and defence.

The scheme has already been implemented in atomic energy, space research and scientific and technical research departments under the name of “Performance Based Incentive Scheme”. As a result, there has been tremendous improvement in the productivity and output of these departments.

One can use the Right to Information Act to find out how the performance is evaluated and details regarding promotions. The annual performance appraisals submitted by the employees and the feedback and comments marked by their senior officials are now declassified and are accessible to all. The employee is evaluated based on the annual targets, and the amount of work accomplished that year.

Options have been created to constantly improve management practices. Still, there are issues that need to be addressed. There is fear that such target-based appraisals would encourage unhealthy and selfish result-obsessed-performances, and discourage team spirit and selfless acts aimed at general welfare.

In order to successfully implement these schemes, it is very important for the management to be proactive, benevolent, focused, with clear thinking process, and very impartial.

In other words, a mere rod isn’t sufficient to control an elephant. One also has to have a properly qualified and trained mahout. Similarly, mere schemes alone wouldn’t bring the required transformation in the central government departments. They also need excellent management teams to implement them successfully.

Salaried women to get higher income tax exemption in the Budget 2014

Salaried women to get higher income tax exemption in the Budget 2014
Good news for salaried women! Narendra Modi Government is considering higher income tax exemption limit for women in the budget for 2014-15.
Finance minister Arun Jaitley is restructuring tax slabs and is thus set to approve a proposal to raise the tax exemption limit to Rs 3 lakh from existing Rs 2 lakh.

The Modi government will ease the tax burden on the middle class and impose a higher tax on the super rich in its first Budget to be presented by Union finance minister Arun Jaitley next month.

According to the proposal, under consideration of the new government, there would also be a tax on the super- rich bracket, comprising those earning Rs 10 crore or more of 35 per cent. This category would be above the Rs 1 crore, class which currently pays an effective tax of 33 per cent inclusive of a surcharge that the earlier government had introduced.


India’s tax regime is being overhauled by Finance minster

Women will be offered a higher tax relief — the threshold income below which individuals are not liable to pay taxes—for women could be fixed at between Rs. 3,25,000 to Rs. 3,50,000.
Rs. 1 lakh annual tax deduction allowed under Section 80C of the Income-tax Act has not kept pace with the rising inflation and needs revision.

A separate deduction of at least Rs 1 lakh per year specifically for education is being considered
Exemption on home loans:  To reduce the burden on households for the interest paid on housing loan for a self-occupied house property a deduction of up to Rs 1.5 lakh is allowed. It can be increased to Rs 5 lakh per year.

Moreover, a proposal to reduce the age for tax exemption for senior citizens to 60 years from 65 years is also under consideration.


EXISTING TAX STRUCTURE
Income of less than Rs. 2 lakh a year are exempt from paying taxes.
Earning between Rs. 2 lakh and Rs. 5 lakh annually are taxed at 10%,
Between Rs. 5 lakh and Rs. 10 lakh at 20%
Earning more than Rs. 10 lakh pays a tax of 30%.

Retirement issue is to be handled with social mindset – says Dr. Jitendra Singh

Retirement issue is to be handled with social mindset – says Dr. Jitendra Singh
 
There are approximately 40,000 fresh retirees every year from the Central Government Civil establishments alone. This number could be close to 1,00,000 including defense, railways, posts and telecom. In addition there is a pool of around 50 lakh existing pensioners. This group of personnel can, by and large, offer greater maturity, experience and stability. With improved living conditions and the best of medical facilities, most of these retiring government employees would be capable of putting in a good 5-7 years of active service.

MoS (Personnel) Dr. Jitendra Singh addresses pre-retirement counseling programme
The retirement issue is to be handled with social mindset – says Dr. Jitendra Singh
The Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare conducted a pre-retirement counseling for retirees here today. Addressing the concluding session the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the issue of retirement is to be handled with social mindset. The MoS stated that the society should feel good about it. He stated that the issue is too large to handle by the government itself and hoped that social organization should come forward to help.
 
The Department of Pensions has institutionalised regular conduct of pre-retirement Counseling workshops. These workshops target retiring personnel two to two-and-a-half years before the retirement date. Topics covered are (i) Formalities to be covered for timely payment of retirement dues (ii) Financial planning for the amounts received at retirement (iii) Preparation of Will (iv) CGHS facilities after retirement and (v) Post-retirement opportunities through Sankalp.
 
The “Sankalp’ programme has been initiated by the Department towards this end and a web portal of the same name has also been launched. Pensioners, Pensioner Associations and NGOs can register on the website http//www.pensionersportal.gov.in/sankalp.
 
Recognising the fact that a retiring government employee is very often unprepared to face the fact that he may be without a daily routine and a meaningful existence the day after he retires, the Government is looking for ways to engage the retired employees in meaningful social work.
 
There are approximately 40,000 fresh retirees every year from the Central Government Civil establishments alone. This number could be close to 1,00,000 including defense, railways, posts and telecom. In addition there is a pool of around 50 lakh existing pensioners. This group of personnel can, by and large, offer greater maturity, experience and stability. With improved living conditions and the best of medical facilities, most of these retiring government employees would be capable of putting in a good 5-7 years of active service. Further, the financial requirements are by and large taken care of by the regular monthly pension payments which are also inflation indexed. What that hurts is a sense of not being wanted anymore and the lack of a daily routine.
 
Realising the potential of such a large section of experienced, capable and productive workforce, the Department of Pensions and Pensioners’ Welfare has conceptualised such pre-retirement counseling sessions for retirees. This serves as a platform for exchange of information between retiring employees and voluntary or other organisations working towards building society looking for expertise, skill and maturity which can be offered by these retired government servants. The forum will serve to facilitate matching of broad parameters of geographical location and basic skills/ expertise required/ available. Both employees and organisations will have to register on to this portal.
 
Another possibility is to bring together groups of like-minded pensioners /Pensioners’ Associations and the ministries which are looking for concurrent audit or evaluation of development schemes being implemented all over the country.
 
The stakeholders identified for the project are: Supply side:
a) Pensioners
b) Pensioners Associations identified by the Department involved in pensioners welfare
Demand side:
a) Organisations involved in Social welfare projects
b) Government Departments having Social welfare schemes
c) Indian Institute of Corporate affairs for CSR activities
d) Corporate-Public and Private with CSR funds

Foreign Tour for Central Government Employees – Demanded by NC JCM Staff Side

Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
Leave Travel Concession
Leave Travel Concession is a facility extended to the Government employees, which enables scheme to avail holidays and undertack travel as a tourist with his family.
The facility provides him with an opportunity to be away from the monotonous daily routine and be with his family without the botherisation of the official duties. It is an established fact that if employer is encouraged to take such holidays they will reform rejuvenated and the employer is benefitted through his increased productivity.
Over the years, on representation from employees, the concession has been widened. However, some aspects of this facilities require certain further relaxations/improvements. We enumerate those as under:-
1. Permission for air journey for all categories of employees to and from NE Region.
2. Permission for personnel posted in NE Region for a journey within NE Region.
3. To increase the periodicity of the LTC once in two years.
4. Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
We request the 7th CPC to consider recommending our suggestion for improvements to the Government.

Suggestion on Dearness Allowance for 7th Pay Commission – NC JCM STAFF SIDE

Suggestion on Dearness Allowance for 7th Pay Commission – NC JCM STAFF SIDE
National Council JCM Staff Side suggested on the issue of Dearness Allowance in 7th Pay Commission, the existing formula of computation of Dearness allowance and its payment with effect from 1st January, and 1st July may continue…
Dearness allowance

The neutralisation envisaged under the present system of computation of dearness compensation is supposed to be cent per cent, but in reality it is not the case. Actual consumer price index is much higher than the level at which DA is calculated on the basis of 12 monthly average. The average is always lower than the actual cost of living.

The calculation of consumer price index, its basis, the basket of goods on which it is based, are questionable and has become a matter of dispute. Since the Pay Commission being not the forum at which these issues could be taken, we do not propose to go into the details of this aspects.

We suggest, therefore, that the existing formula of computation of DA and its payment with effect from 1st January, and 1st July, may continue.

Income tax exemption on children education allowance

Income tax exemption on children education allowance
Children Education Allowance (CEA) under section 10 (14) read with Rule 2Bb(2)(5) of the Income Tax Act is Rs.I00 per month per child.
This limit as fixed more than 2 decades back when the maximum amount of Children Education AIlowance for Central Government Employees was fixed at Rs. 100/- per month per child under the IVth Central Pay Commission. Now the current rate of this allowance is Rs.1000 per child.
Para 5.4 (A)(13) of Income Tax Circular dated 16.8.2011 indicates the details w.r.t. “Tuition Fee” which can be claimed for deduction under Section 80C. The same is reproduced below:

“A. As per section 80C, an employee will be entitled to deductions for the whole of amounts paid or deposited in the current financial year in the following schemes, subject to a limit of Rs.1,00,000/-:
13. Tuition fees, whether at the time of admission or thereafter, paid to any university, college, school or other educational institution situated in India, for the purpose of full-time education of any two children of the employee.
Full-time education includes any educational course offered by any university, college, school or other educational institution to a student who is enrolled full-time for the said course. It is also clarified that full-time education includes play-school activities, pre-nursery and nursery classes.
It is clarified that the amount allowable as tuition fees shall include any payment of fee to any university, college, school or other educational institution in India except the amount representing payment in the nature of development fees or donation or capitation fees or payment of similar nature.”
Apart from Section 80c,Children’s education allowance up to Rs. 100 per month per child for a maximum of two children and Hostel expenditure allowance of Rs. 300 per month per child for a maximum of two children is exempt from Income Tax. Hence 1200 only claim in this year. However since a part of the allowance relates to previous year you can claim relief under Section 89(1).

Retirement Age of Government Employees to 60 Raises in Andhra Pradesh

Retirement Age of Government Employees to 60  Raises in Andhra Pradesh

The Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly today unanimously passed a Bill amending the AP Public Employment (Regulation of Age of Superannuation) Act, 1984, enhancing retirement age of government employees to 60 years from 58.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu moved the amendment Bill in the House and requested the members to adopt it unanimously.

"There is a significant improvement in the average life expectancy when compared to that of 1984 (when the Act was framed). As per the World Health Organisation, the average Indian life expectancy is 65 years. The age of retirement of Central government employees was also raised from 58 to 60 years in 1998," the Chief Minister pointed out, explaining the statement of objects and reasons for the amendment Bill.

"Consequent to the reorganisation of Andhra Pradesh, the (new) state government felt it necessary to utilise the services of senior employees in view of their experience and expertise. Accordingly, the government has decided to enhance the retirement age to 60 years," the Chief Minister added.

Mr Chandrababu said the government and the employees should work hand-in-hand to develop the new state.

"Enhancement of retirement age is the first step. We will implement several other measures for the employees' welfare.We will provide them health insurance. Our government will be employee-friendly," the Chief Minister said.

He said plans were afoot to build houses for retired employees.

"Every government employee should have a own house by the time he retires," he added.

Mr Chandrababu said the government would treat as "holiday" the period when employees went on strike last year protesting the bifurcation of the state.

"We will treat that period as holiday and ensure continuity in service," he said.

"There are many other issues concerning government employees. But we are not in a position to resolve them all in one go because we are facing a huge financial crisis caused by the state's bifurcation," he said.

The Chief Minister also assured the House that his government was committed to creating employment opportunities for every household in the state. He recalled that it was the erstwhile Telegu Desam Party or TDP government under him that created the maximum number of jobs on an "unprecedented scale".

"Be it in the government or the private sector, we will create employment opportunities and ensure each family gets one job. We will also pay unemployment stipend of Rs 1000 to Rs 2000 to the youth till they get jobs," he added.


YSR Congress MLA Jyothula Nehru wanted to know from when the unemployment stipend would be paid but did not get any response.

The House then passed the amendment Bill without further discussion.

All Principal Chief Commissioners of Income-tax,
DGIT (Int. Tax)
DGIT (Exemption), DGIT(Inv.), DGIT(I&CI)

Sub.: Jurisdiction orders and implementation of Cadre restructuring exercise of the lncome-tax Department — reg.

Sir/ Madam,
I am directed to refer to the Boards letters of even number dated 5.6.2014 and 6.6.2014 regarding information to be sent while forwarding draft jurisdiction orders to the ITA Division as a consequence of proposed restructuring. It was specifically requested. that the requisite information may be e-mailed besides sending by post.

2. However, it is observed that certain officers are visiting CBDT personally only for submitting the proposals to the Board and that too without any prior intimation. The undersigned is directed to convey that such visits not only result in wastage of time of officers but also lead to undesirable expenditure incurred on tour. It is reiterated that the proposals and the requisite information may strictly be sent by post and the soft copy of the same may also be sent by e-mail. At present, there is no need for personal visits. Wherever any such need is felt the nodal officer would be so informed. Any clarification, if desired, could be discussed telephonically by the nodal officer or his / her team with the officers mentioned in CBDT’s letter dated 5.6.2014.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
(Surabhi Sharma)
Under Secretary to the Government of India
