Points of Doubts raised by PcsDA/ CsDs and Remarks/view of DoPT

1. Whether a physically disabled officer who travels by air/ train on Temporary Duty can make use of own/ hired taxi on LTC?
As per DoPT’s O.M. No. 31011/3/2009-Estt.(A) dated 28th October, 2009, such relaxation to travel by own car/ hired taxi is available to only those Govt. servants who on account of physical handicap of self or dependant family members is unable to perform the LTC journey by the authorized modes of transport and are compelled to undertake the journey by own car/ private taxi.
It is believed that a Govt. employee who is able to travel by air/ train on Temporary Duty, is capable of undertaking the journey by the same on LTC also.

2. Whether the amount should be restricted to Rail fare by shortest route or the physically challenged officer using own/ hired taxi on LTC who is otherwise entitled to travel by air (i.e. drandng grade pay of Rs.5400/- and above).
The amount admissible to the physically disabled Govt. servant shall not be more than admissible if the journey is performed by the entitled class of rail/air (as per his entitled mode) by the shortest route or the actual taxi fare whichever is less, provided that the source station and destination station are connected by these modes of transport.

3. Whether it would be appropriate to admit air fare on notional basis for non-existing air routes or shortest routes, like Pune-Mumbai, Delhi-Faridabad, Delhi-Mathura etc. for Physically challenged officer using own/ hired taxi on LTC?
No, Air fare cannot be admitted on notional that too for the non-existing air route. Where the source station and Destination station are not connected by train or air transport, the claim shall be regulated in terms of the Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No. 19030/3/2008-E.IV dated 23rd September, 2008 as per the mileage allowance for journeys performed by road in own car/taxi.

Clarification on Revision of Investment Guidelines for NPS Scheme

Clarification on Revision of Investment Guidelines for NPS Scheme issued on 29.01.2014

CIRCULAR
PFRDA/2015/05/PFM/03
To,
All Pension Funds,
Date: 22nd Jan. 2015

Subject: Clarification on Revision of Investment Guidelines for NPS Scheme issued on 29.01.2014

This is with reference to the Circular No. PFRDA/2014/02/PFM/1 for Revision of Investment Guidelines for NPS Schemes issued by PFRDA on 29.01.2014.

2. Pursuant to above mentioned circular, the Pension Funds were expected to realign their portfolios in accordance with the revised guidelines.

3. However in the interest of the subscribers the following was stipulated in clause 5.
“Pension Funds to ensure that the interest of the subscribers is safeguarded and that they should not incur any loss while exiting the existing investments to comply with the revised guidelines. However, all future investments should be made strictly in compliance with the above guidelines’

4. It is to clarify that the above clause was only intended to protect the subscriber any loss on exiting any existing security merely to comply with revised investment pattern

5. However this does not imply that Pension Funds cannot exit from existing investments at a loss, if it is so required as a measure of portfolio management by the Pension Funds within the parameters of their internal Investment Management/Risk Management/ Stop loss policy and within the overall framework of guidelines issued by PFRDA.

6. A case in the point is when there is downgrade of any security, it is for the Pension Funds to determine the point of exit from it. The guidelines do not bar any such exit even if there is a loss, if the exit is so determined by the policy of Pension Funds within the overall framework of PFRDA guidelines.

Will Central Government Employees, get 6% dearness allowance

Will Central Government Employees, get 6% dearness allowance

 Good days will come for Central Government Employees, get 6% dearness allowance
 Modi Government is set to big announcement on Budget in view of 7th Pay Commission
It is certain that 6% increase in DA is guaranteed. Here it is necessary to mention that the DA is increased twice in a year. Central government employees are paid from the first of January and July.  As we're told that the DA is 6 percent of total will be 113%. But it is also a provision that if the DA crossed 100 mark will be merged in the basic salary. The employee unions are pressing hard for the merger of DA in the basic pay. But neither the government nor the Seventh Pay Commission is committed at this point. The government has also not in mood to merge the DA in the basic pay. If that happens, this will be bad news for the employees.


Union workers are now engaged on the expected budget has to be presented in February. Employees are hoping that the finance minister will must bring good day for them. On the other side the employee organizations has started to pressure on government to merge the DA in basic pay. The employees union are also pressing for provision of fund for implementation of Seventh Pay Commission in the budget. Trade union leaders are confident that a big announcement can be in budget .

Address by the President of India on the eve of the Republic Day of India 2015

Address by the President of India on the eve of the Republic Day of India 2015

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
President’s Secretariat
25-January-2015 19:20 IST

Address by the President of India on the eve of the Republic Day of India 2015
My Fellow Citizens:
 
1. On the eve of the 66th Republic Day, I extend warm greetings to all of you in India and abroad. I convey my special greetings to members of our Armed Forces, Paramilitary Forces and Internal Security Forces.

2. Twenty Sixth January holds an everlasting place in our national memory because it is the day when modern India was born. Under Mahatma Gandhi’s moral and political leadership, the National Congress passed the Purna Swaraj resolution demanding complete independence from British rule in December 1929. Gandhiji organized nationwide celebrations on 26 January 1930 as Independence Day. From then on, the Nation took a pledge on this day every year to carry on the freedom struggle till we attained it.

3. Exactly twenty years later, in 1950, we adopted our charter of
modernity, the Constitution. Tragically, Gandhiji had been martyred two years before, but the framework of a Constitution that has made India a role model for today’s world was constructed out of his philosophy. Its essence lay in four principles: democracy; freedom of faith; gender equality; and an economic upsurge for those trapped in the curse of dire poverty. These were made Constitutional obligations. Gandhiji’s talisman for the country’s rulers was simple and powerful and I quote: “Whenever you are in doubt…recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen and ask yourself…will it lead to swaraj for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?” (unquote). Our resolve to eliminate poverty through inclusive development has to be a step in that direction.

Fellow Citizens:
4. The past year has been remarkable in many ways. Particularly because, after three decades the people have voted to power a single party with a majority for a stable government, and in the process freed the country’s governance from the compulsions of coalition politics. Outcome of these Elections has given the mandate to the elected government to fulfill its commitment to the people by using its majority for formulating policies and making laws to implement those policies. The voter has played her part; it is now up to those who have been elected to honour this trust. It was a vote for clean, efficient, effective, gender-sensitive, transparent, accountable and citizen-friendly governance.

Fellow Citizens:
5. There can be no governance without a functioning legislature. The legislature reflects the will of the people. It is the platform where progressive legislation using civilized dialogue must create delivery mechanisms for realizing the aspirations of the people. It calls for reconciling the differences amongst stakeholders and building a consensus for the law to be enacted. Enacting laws without discussion impacts the law-making role of the Parliament. It breaches the trust reposed in it by the people. This is neither good for the democracy nor for the policies relating to those laws.

Fellow Citizens:
6. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Rabindranath Tagore, Subramanya Bharati and many more – the vocation and the approach might have been different but they all spoke the same language of patriotism. We owe our freedom to these great warriors of nationalism. We also salute the unsung heroes who have died securing the liberation of Mother India. But it pains me to see that Mother India is not respected by her own children when it comes to the safety of women. Atrocities of rape, murders, harassment on the roads, kidnapping and dowry deaths have made women fearful even in their own homes. Rabindranath Tagore saw women not only as the deities of the household fire, but also the flame of the soul itself. Where have we failed, as parents, teachers and leaders, that our children have forgotten all tenets of decent behaviour and respect for women? We have enacted many legislations but, as Benjamin Franklin had once said and I quote: “Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are” (unquote). Every Indian must take a pledge to protect the honour of women from violence of any kind. Only a nation that respects and empowers its women can become a global power.

Fellow Citizens:
7. The Indian Constitution is the holy book of democracy. It is a lodestar for the socio-economic transformation of an India whose civilization has celebrated pluralism, advocated tolerance and promoted goodwill between diverse communities. These values, however, need to be preserved with utmost care and vigilance. The freedom inherent in democracy sometimes generates an unhappy by-product when political discourse becomes a competition in hysteria that is abhorrent to our traditional ethos. The violence of the tongue cuts and wounds people’s hearts. Religion, said Gandhiji, is a force for unity; we cannot make it a cause of conflict.

Fellow Citizens:
8. Much is said about India’s soft power. But the most powerful example of India’s soft power, in an international environment where so many countries are sinking into the morass of theocratic violence, lies in our definition of the relationship between faith and polity. We have always reposed our trust in faith-equality where every faith is equal before the law and every culture blends into another to create a positive dynamic. Wisdom of India teaches us: unity is strength, dominance is weakness.

Fellow Citizens:
9. The multi-nation conflict has converted boundaries into bloodlines, and turned terrorism into an industry of evil. Terrorism and violence are seeping across our borders. While peace, non-violence and good neighbourly intentions should remain the fundamentals of our foreign policy, we cannot afford to be complacent about adversaries who will stop at nothing to disrupt our progress towards a prosperous and equitable India. We have the strength, confidence and determination to defeat architects of this war against our people. Repeated violations of the ceasefire along the Line of Control and terrorist attacks must get an integrated response through incisive diplomacy and impregnable security mechanisms. The world must join India in fighting the menace of terrorism.

Fellow Citizens:
10. Economic progress is also a test of democracy. Year 2015 is a year of hope. Key economic indicators provide for much optimism. Strengthening of the external sector, move towards fiscal consolidation, moderation in price levels, early signs of rebound in manufacturing and record agricultural production last year augur well for our economy. Achieving five percent plus growth rates each in the first two quarters of 2014-15 is a healthy sign for an early reversion to the high growth trajectory of 7-8 percent.

11. The success of a society is measured by both survival and strengthening of its values, institutions and instruments of governance. Our national narrative has been shaped by the principles of its past, triumphs of today and is now ready to own the future by powering its latent potential.

Fellow Citizens:
12. Our national ambition is to raise the quality of life of Indians by quantum leaps and raise generations enlightened by learning, patriotism, compassion, honesty and a sense of duty. Thomas Jefferson had said and I quote: “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty” (unquote). We must strive for the highest quality in our educational institutions so that we can take our place, within a visible future, among the knowledge leaders of the 21st century. I would urge, in particular, that we lay special stress on the culture of books and reading, which takes knowledge beyond the classroom and frees imagination from stress of the immediate and the utilitarian. We must be a creative people, nourished by innumerable, interlinked rivers of ideas. Our youth must lead the way to mastery of technology and communication in a universe where the cloud has become a library without frontiers, and vast opportunity awaits within the computer in your palm. The 21st century is within India’s grasp.

Fellow Citizens:
13. This future will remain both visible and elusive if we do not discover the ability to continually cleanse ourselves of retrograde habits and social ills. Over the past century, some have died, others have faded, but many still exist. We are celebrating, this year, the centenary of Gandhiji’s return to India from South Africa. We can never cease to learn from a Mahatma. The first thing he did in 1915 was to keep his eyes open and his lips sealed. It is advisable to follow his example. While we are, justifyly, focused on 1915, perhaps we should cast a glance on what Gandhiji did in 1901, the year when he returned home for his first break. The annual Congress session was held that year in Calcutta, then the capital of British India. Gandhiji was a delegate. He went to Ripon College for a meeting. He discovered that the whole place had been dirtied by fellow-delegates. A shocked Gandhiji did not wait for any allotted cleaner. He picked up a broom and cleaned the area. No one followed his example in 1901. 114 years later, let us follow his example, and become worthy children of a magnificent father.

Jai Hind!

OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Shortage of staff in the grades of Assistants and Section Officers-modification to the channel of submission till staff position improves regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to the various requests received from Ministries/Departments for posting of officers in the grades of Assistant and Section Officer and to say that as on date about 2500 vacancies exist in the Assistants grade alone. The vacancies could not be filled up on account of litigation relating to Combined Graduate Level Examination-2013, The CGLE-2013 has to be conducted again and its results are expected shortly. Selected candidates would be first required to undergo the Foundational Training and only thereafter, they could be nominated to Ministries/Departments. In view of this, it would take few more months before DR Assistants could be posted.

The same procedure will be followed in respect of Assistants recruited through CGLE-2014 for which Tier-I of the examination has already been conducted. In the meanwhile, vacancies in the grade of Assistant will continue to remain. As regards. SO grade, the position has improved considerably and this Department will shortly issue the zone for promotion against seniority quota for the Select List year 2014. The remaining vacancies will also be filled up once UPSC declares results of Limited Departmental Competitive Examination - 2014.

2. The undersigned is directed to circulate herewith the vacancy position in the grades of Assistant and SO as per Annexure. It may be seen that the combined strength of officers in-position in these grades in almost all the Ministries/Departments is more than the sanctioned strength of Assistants.
