OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure : clarifications : regarding.

Following the notification of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2015, this Department has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. The matter has been considered in this Department and the points of doubts are clarified as under:

1. Point of doubt: As per the provisions of FR22 (l) (a) (1), the Government servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex-cadre post or ad hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/ appointment or from the date of next increment.

Some of the employees, promoted between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 25th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous. Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22 at this stage.

Clarification: Under the changed circumstances after notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016, the employee may be allowed to exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR22(l)(a)(1), Such revised option shall be exercised within one month of issue of this 0M. Option so revised, shall be final.

2. Point of doubt: Whether employees appointed/promoted/ during granted financial up-gradation 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016,.

Clarification: Since the provisions of CCS  (RP)Rules, 2016 are effective  from 01.01.2016, no increment shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation: Confederation


Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation :  Confederation

Ex Service men Pay Fixation : Confederation writes to Hon'ble Minister of State, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension

Ref: CONF/GENL/Ex service men/2016 19

To,
Dr. Jitendra Singh
Hon'ble Minister of State Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension

New Delhi : 110001

Respected Sir,
Sub : Ex Service men pay fixation : intervention requested.

1. It is submitted that pay fixation of re employed Ex Service men who held rank below commissioned officer/Group A at the time of their retirement is not carried out in many departments (Eg; Postal department) as per Government orders issued from time due to misinterpretation/wrong classification by the administrative authorities. The re employed Ex Servicemen are being deprived of their due by the controlling authorities.

2. Department of Personnel & Training under Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension is the nodal authority in the subject matter. Presently CCS (Fixation of Pay of re employed Pensioners) orders 1986, amended from time to time, which act as the basic guideline, is required to be amended to bring clarity and parity for whole class of Ex servicemen. The pay of the re employed Ex Commissioned officers/Group 'A' is fixed at a higher stage due to their past service benefit but in the case of re employed Ex Servicemen who held rank below commissioned officers, their pay is fixed at minimum of pay scale of re employed post which is denial of natural justice and violation of fundamental rights, particularly right to equality, enshrined in our constitution, as discrimination arises out of such partial provisions. The provision contained in pay fixation basically are welfare measure to support the class of Ex Servicemen as a whole. However, this discrimination in pay fixation had added to their woes.

3. Detailed statement of case for regularization/streamlining of pay fixation of re employed Ex Servicemen are enclosed herewith for your kind consideration and issue of necessary guidelines in favour of veteran Warries of our country who sacrificed their vital years for India and still engaged themselves in nation building.

STATEMENT OF CASE FOR REGULARISATION OF PAY FIXATION OF RE EMPLOYED EX SERVICEMEN (PERSONNEL BELOW OFFICER RANK) IN CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS/ MINISTRIES
INTRODUCTION

Government of India provides reemployment opportunities to Ex Servicemen Officers/Other Ranks of Indian Armed Forces in various Departments/Ministries, Public Sector Organizations & Autonomous Bodies as a rehabilitation measure due to their compulsory retirement at early age to keep the forces young. According to CCS (Fixation of Pay of reemployed Pensioners) Orders 1986 amended from time to time by DOP&T the Reemployed Officers are allowed to draw a higher stage of initial pay in consideration with their pre retirement pay on reemployment in such Government organizations. In case of other ranks/PBOR (Jawans/NCOs/JCOs) the Government departments and Ministries have allowed to draw only minimum/entry pay of re employed post as applicable to fresh recruit. Public Sector organizations viz., Nationalised Banks, LIC, NIC and other PSUs have allowed to draw the higher stage of initial pay (at the stage of pre retirement pay) to reemployed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs/NCOs) as mentioned above.

DETAILED JUSTIFICATION OF THE CASE

Department of Posts and some other departments has not agreed to allow the higher initial pay on re employment in consideration with pre retirement pay to re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer rank of the Armed Forces. Most of the Ex servicemen belong to PBOR category retired (discharged) from service at the age of 35 : 40 years to keep the forces young. To ensure the minimum survival support earning, Government of India introduced a higher stage of pay in several manners to the reemployed ex servicemen from time to time. According to Dept of P&T OM No 3/1/86 Estt (P II) dated 31 July 1986 the earlier orders relating to fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners was scattered in a number of OM issued by Ministry of finance from time to time. Dept. of P&T consolidated all these orders and issued fresh guidelines in a single order viz., CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. The pay fixation procedure mentioned in such earlier

OMs (Prior to 1986) issued by Ministry of Finance as under :

1) According to Ministry of Finance, Dept of Expenditure OM No 8(34) Estt III/57 dated 25 Nov 1958 pay of the re employed pensioners will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of the re employed post. In cases where it is felt that fixation of pay of re employed officers at the minimum of pay scale will cause undue hardship the pay may be fixed at a higher stage by allowing one increment for each year of service the officer has rendered before retirement in a post not lower than that he reemployed. In other words, if the amount of pay plus pension is less than the last pay drawn before retirement from previous service, it will be treated as undue hardship.

2) In case of reemployed pensioner who retired before attaining the age of 55 years, Rs 125/ was ignored from the pension for the purpose of pay fixation vide Ministry of finance OM No F.4(3)E III/82 dated 13 December 1978.

3) According to Ministry of Finance OM No F.4(3) E.III/82 dated 13 Dec 1983 the entire pension of the reemployed pensioners who held below Group A post/ Commissioned officer rank and retired before attaining the age of 55 years will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. In this regard Para 4(d) (i) of CCS (Fixation of pay or reemployed pensioners) order 1986, amended from time to time may be referred.
Hence in the cases where pay plus Non Ignorable Portion of Pension is less than last pay drawn (LPD) before retirement, it will be treated as undue hardship. In case of Ex : Personnel below Commissioned officer /Group 'A' Officer Rank, the non ignorable part of pension is zero. So it may be described such a manner that, if the pay of re employed post is less than last pay drawn in such cases advance increments will be granted as instructions given in Ministry of Finance OM dated 25 November 1958. Hence the pay of re employed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs) will be fixed at higher stage.

4) Now the provisions of CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986, and its application is as under: :

(i) In case of Reemployed officers who held Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement: : According to Para 4(d)(ii) such re employed officer who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years, first Rs 4000/ of his pension only will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. According to Para 4(b) (ii) Pay of such re employed officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement as a part of pension is only ignored for the purpose of pay fixation and remaining part of pension will be deducted from pay so fixed at the last pay drawn. As a result, pay of such officer is fixed at much higher than the minimum pay of re employed post. Illustration as mentioned below:

Colonel A Retired at the age of 54 Years and re employed as Section Officer [Gp A Gazetted post in the pay scale of (Rs 15600 (BP) + Rs 5400 (Grade Pay)] His other details are as under :

Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 15600 + Rs 5400 = Rs 21000
Last pay drawn in previous service = Rs 54000 (BP) + Rs 8700 (GP) + Rs 6000 (MSP)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 68700/
Pensioned sanctioned = Rs 34350/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: :
Step : I : Determination of last pay drawn = Rs 68700
Step : II : Determination of non ignorable = Rs 34350 : Rs 4000 = Rs 30350 part of his pension
Step : III : Deduction of non ignorable = Rs 68700 : Rs 30350 = Rs 38350 Part of pension from

Last Pay Drawn
Step : IV : Fixation of Initial pay = Rs 38350
(In addition to pay so fixed above, he shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. As explained in para 4(C) of CCS (RP) rules, 2008 vide OM 3/19/2009 dated 5th April 2010.)

From above it is notable that the minimum pay of the re employed post is Rs 21,000/ and the pay fixed at Rs 38350/ hence the pay has been fixed at the higher stage due to consideration of his pre retirement pay. It is justified as the pay of an experienced person can never be equal to a fresh recruit, but the same justification should be considered for reemployed Ex Non Commissioned officer cadre (JCOs/Jawans) also.

In case of Reemployed Ex servicemen who held rank below Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement and retired before attaining the age of 55 years: : According to Para 4(d) (i) such re employed ex servicemen who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years his entire pension will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation.

According to Para 4(b) (i) Pay of such re employed ex servicemen will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of reemployed post. Pre retirement pay will not be considered for his pay fixation. Treatment of undue hardship caused due to fixation of minimum pay is neglected here.

Illustration as mentioned below: :
Sepoy ABC (MACP I) Retired at the age of 36 Years and reemployed as Social Security Assistant in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230

His other details are as under: :
Last pay drawn = Rs 9550 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 14250/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 7125/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: 

Step I Determination of Initial pay of re employed post = Rs 8230
Step II Fixation of Initial pay on re employment = Rs 8230

From above it is notable that the re employed ex servicemen is allowed to draw only minimum pay of reemployed post which is Rs 8200/ much less than his last pay drawn Rs14250/ before retirement, hence the undue hardship arises as his pre retirement pay has been neglected. The gap will widen in case we take example of Nb Subedar of Army or a Sergeant of Air force who gets X pay additionally.

From the illustration (i) and (ii) it is revealed that the CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 is not a consolidation of provisions of OM issued by Ministry of finance rather it is an order issued by Government of India which intended to give benefit to Ex Commissioned officers and deprive the Ex servicemen (PBOR). This Order was formulated to serve the interests of Ex Group 'A' Officers/Commissioned Officer category only and discriminated against the PBOR/Other Ranks in terms of Right to equality enshrined in our Constitution of India. The service conditions were equally harsher to whole class of ex servicemen including all ranks of Armed Forces; in fact more harsh if service privileges and promotions are to be considered separately.

5. In addition to above, according to Para 2 of DOPT OM No 3/13/2008/Estt/Pay II dated 11 Nov 2008 it is clear that the pay of re employed ex servicemen will be fixed according to rule 7 of CCS RP Rules 2008 with adherence to CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Rules 1986 amended from time to time. The term minimum pay refers here the pay last drawn by the reemployed ex servicemen before retirement (substantive pay) and the pay should be fixed in the pay structure of re employed post i.e. the grade pay of re employed post only admissible in such case. Total pay should be equal to the last pay drawn by the pensioner. In this regard your attention is also invited to para 3(v) of DOPT OM No 3/19/2009 Estt (Pay II) dated 05 April 2010 where it is clearly instructed that the pay of re employed personnel/officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn. In this regard Verdict of Honourable Supreme Court dt 08.11.1996 in the case of Director General of India Posts Vs B Ravindran may be referred.

6. Pay of Re Employed Officers is fixed at higher stage due to formula applied as prescribed in the CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. Whereas the interest of personnel below officer rank was totally neglected and their pay is fixed at the minimum of pay scale only which is contrary to natural injustice and violation of Right to equality enshrined in the Constitution of India as discrimination arises.

7. Public Sector Banks, LIC, NIC and PSUs are still allowed the higher stage of initial pay to Ex PBOR with reference to the Government orders (DOP&T OM dated 05.04.2010). Circular of Indian Banks Association in this regard may be referred to. Due to misinterpretation/ambiguous language of Government orders issued on the subject matter, Central Government departments does not agree to re fix the pay of re employed ex servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned in para 4 above. The re employed Ex serviceman belonging to PBOR category, are allowed to get their pay fixed only at the minimum/entry pay of re employed post which is illogical and unlawful decision in terms of violation of constitutional provisions of fundamental rights. As a result, a large number of ex servicemen are suffering from financial hardship besides moral depression.

8. Quoting the same authority /Govt. orders issued by DOP&T the PSU organizations and Nationalised Banks (Govt. Undertakings) have facilitated the pay fixation to the ex servicemen (PBOR) to fix the pay at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement but Central Government departments still not agreed to provide the entitlements to the re employed ex soldiers due to ambiguous provisions. They cite different reasons that PSUs are following different pay system etc. forgetting that PSUs derive the authority from the same Central government, So, how can there be two sets of rules for same category by same employer (Central Government).

REMEDIAL ACTION REQUIRED TO BE TAKEN

9. In view of the above it is requested that, your good office should weed out the actual disparity arising out of incomplete and discriminatory orders issued by the DOP&T vide CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 (amended from time to time) and issue necessary amendment/fresh order in favour of the Ex Servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned below: :
For: : Para 4(b)(i)

Where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008.

It should be read as under (DRAFT PROPOSAL) : Para 4(b)(i) where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. In cases of reemployed ex servicemen where pension is fully ignored and pay fixed at minimum/entry pay of reemployed post which is less than his pay last drawn in the Armed forces will be treated as undue hardship and his pay required to be fixed at a higher stage by allowing advance increments until his pay reaches at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement to prevent undue hardship. In addition, he will be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit.

Illustration: Sergeant/Havildar (any non commissioned rank) ABC Retired before the age of 55 Years and reemployed in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP)
Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230
Last pay drawn by him = Rs 12000 (BP) + Rs 2800 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay) + GCB 240 + X pay 1400
Total pay last drawn = Rs 18740/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 9370/

Pay fixation on his reemployment :
Step : I Determination of minimum pay = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = 8230 (minimum pay of reemployed post)
Step : II Fixation of total pay = Rs 18740/ (Last pay drawn) by allowing advance increment).
Step : III Manner of Re fixation of pay = Rs 16840 (Band Pay) + 2400 (Grade Pay of re employed post)
(This order should be applicable to all re employed ex servicemen irrespective of their date of retirement and date of re employment)

CONCLUSION

10. In the light of the above, it is requested that the fresh orders/amendments be issued free from any scope of misinterpretation/ ambiguity, clearly mentioning the feasibility of fixation of pay of the re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer ranks, at the same stage as the last pay drawn before retirement, ignoring entire portion of pension since the pension is miniscule and not even enough to live on rent in a city. In addition, they shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to them and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. Thousands of re employed soldiers suffering from acute financial hardship due to very low earning even after re employed. They would get relief with the right approach and initiative if taken at your end at the earliest. This will also save the Government's expenditure and precious time of officers on litigations that are either pending or may be initiated in various courts.

7th Pay Commission: Achhe Din for government employees, Centre likely to hike Dearness Allowance by 2 per cent before Dussehra


7th Pay Commission: Achhe Din for government employees, Centre likely to hike Dearness Allowance by 2 per cent before Dussehra

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will move the proposal of hike in DA on the basis of accepted formula for calculation under the 7th Pay Commission recommendation.

In a good news for 10 million central government employees, Narendra Modi government is likely to hike dearness allowance (DA) by 2 per cent ahead of the Dusshera festival. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will move the proposal of hike in DA on the basis of accepted formula for calculation under the 7th Pay Commission recommendation, while the Union Cabinet is expected to clear the proposal of hike in DA in the next meeting. The 7th Pay Commission recommended the merging of 125 percent dearness allowance into the basic pay.

The Central government is likely to hike dearness allowance (DA) by 2 per cent, based on the data of the Consumer Price Index- Industrial Workers ( CPI-IW). Average rate of Consumer Price Index-Industrial Labour from July 2015 to June, 2016 was 2.90 per cent. Thus, the Centre will increase dearness allowance by two as per accepted formula for calculation, a Finance Ministry official working on the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations was quoted as saying by the Sen Times.

Unlike the 6th Pay commission, which had recommended the basic pay based on the Consumer Price Index 115.76 in January 2006, 7th Pay commission recommended new pay matrix, based on the Consumer Price Index 261.42. The government will use the data of CPI-IW from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. The CPI (IW) of the months July, August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May and June were 263, 264, 266, 269, 270, 269, 269, 267, 268, 271, 275 and 277 respectively.

The Centre revised DA twice in a year on the basis of one year average of retail inflation for industrial workers as per the accepted formula. Last times, the government had increased DA by 6 percentage points from 119 to 125. The new rate of DA will be implemented from July 1, 2016. The cabinet approved the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations for central government employees on July 29, which will impact some 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners.

The 7th Pay Commission notification confirmed that central government employees will get 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay at junior levels, which is the lowest in 70 years. The Cabinet also approved the increase in minimum pay Rs 18,000 from existing Rs 7,000. The 7th pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances. However no final decision has been taken on the allowances by the government. The allowances had been a major bone of contention amongst majority of the central government employees.

DPE issues guidelines to expedite the process for clousure of CPSEs


DPE issues guidelines to expedite the process for clousure of CPSEs.

Department of Public Enterprises (DPE), Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprise has recently issued guidelines to expedite the process for closure of CPSEs so that all administrative Ministries would follow uniform procedure for closure of the CPSEs. Earlier, DPE had issued guidelines for “streamlining the mechanism for revival and restructuring of sick/ incipient sick and weak Central Public Sector Enterprises: General principles and mechanism of restricting”. As per these guidelines, the CPSEs were to be categorized into strategic and non-strategic and revival/restructuring strategy was prescribed. However, there are certain CPSEs in non-strategic sector which have no scope for revival and are to be closed in a time bound manner. Since there are employees working in these CPSEs, Government decided that closure should not cause hardship to them and has now laid down a uniform policy to give workers VRS at 2007 notional pay scale irrespective of the pay scale in which they are working.

The guidelines also prescribe the modalities for disposal of movable assets and immovable assets. The guidelines prescribe that leasehold land would be dealt as per the terms of the lease and freehold land would be offered in following order of priority:-

(i) Central Government Departments.

(ii) Central Government bodies/CPSEs.

(iii) State Government Departments.

(iv) State Government bodies/State PSEs/State authorities.

In case the above categories are not interested in taking the land for six months, then the land would be auctioned through MSTC to any entity so that it can be put to productive use.

Dear Comrades,

Reg: Continuation of Medical Expenses Reimbursement Insurance Scheme for employees/officers who have retired after 1.10.2015.

In terms of the 10th Bipartite Settlement and Joint Note on Officers Wage Revision, Banks have introduced the Medical Expenses Reimbursement Insurance Scheme and all employees and officers have been covered by the Scheme from 1.10.2015. Since the Policy commenced from 1st October, 2015, it will end on 30th September, 2016. Our Settlement / Scheme provides that employees/officers who retired during this period will continue to be covered by the policy upto 30.9.2016 and can continue in the Scheme thereafter on payment of the requisite premium.

However, the Insurance Policy for the retirees commenced from 1.11.2015 and comes to an end on 31.10.2015.In order to ensure coverage of the Policy for this interim period of one month ( 1.10.2016 to 31.10.2016), we took up the matter with IBA.

It is informed that United India Insurance Company has clarified to all the Banks that such retirees can continue in the Scheme by remitting one month pro rata premium amount to cover upto 31.10.2016 and thereafter pay annual premium for future.

Alternatively instead of remitting one month pro.rata premium now and 12 months premium again thereafter, the retirees can also remit 13 months premium now and be covered upto 31.10.2017.

Units are requested to follow up the matter with their respective managements and ensure that retirees are covered by the policy as above.

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 65 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation BPMS submitted that Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways have issued a notification vide Notice No. NH 11065/12/2003 P&M, dated 15.09.2004 to Secretary, PWD of all States/Union Territories and National Highways Authority of India clarifying that the provisions of Indian Tolls (Army and Air Force) Act, 1901 is applicable to all States and National Highways whereby Army personnel are exempted from paying tolls on roads and highways in the States/Union Territories for their private vehicles irrespective of whether they are on duty or not.

This Federation has firm belief that the defence civilians are also integral part of Defence Forces and they perform their duties in almost similar conditions of uniform personnel without any extra financial benefits. Hence, they (Defence civilians) also deserve to be granted the benefits to some extent on par with uniform personnel.

In this regard, D(Mov) offered its comments (copy enclosed for ready reference) that the subject matter was not being dealt with by D(Mov).

Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that Defence Civilians may also be exempted from paying tolls on roads and highways in the States/Union Territories for their private vehicles.

Subject: Promotion to the post of Supervisor (NT) from Leading Fireman: Norms Relaxation in OFB.

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 63 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation submitted that Hon’ble CAT/Principal Bench, New Delhi in OA No. 1396 of 2008 Shri M.R.Meena Vs Union of India has ordered that parity should be maintained between Leading Hand Fire with other feeder grades (viz. LDC, Photographer, Telephone Operator II & Subedar Durwan) for the promotion to the post of Supervisor (Non Technical).
According to existing SRO 30, dated 14.07.2010, Ministry of Defence, Ordnance Factories, Supervisor (Non-Technical) and Telephone Operator Grade II Group C Posts Recruitment Rules, 2010, 50% vacant posts of Supervisor (Non-Tech) will be filled up by promotion from Photographer, Telephone Operator Grade-II, Subedar Durwan and Leading Hand Fire. This fifty per cent post of Supervisor (NT) may be filled up by 64% from the Leading Hand Fires in the Pay Band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus Grade Pay of Rs. 2000/- with five years of regular service in the grade and possessing any of the following qualification:
(a) having passed the Senior Fire Supervisory Course from Defence Institute of Fire Research, Ministry of Defence, New Delhi; or
(b) having passed the Sub Officer's Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute; or
(c) having passed Station Officer's Course or Assistant Divisional Officer's or Divisional Officer's Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute;
or
(d) Degree in Fire Engineering from Nagpur University or any other recognized institute; or
(e) having passed Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers United Kingdom or Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers India
It is to be noted that this fifty per cent post will be be filled up by 17% from amongst Telephone Operators in the Pay Band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service; 12% from Subedar Durwan in the Pay band of Rs. (4400 to 7440) plus GP Rs. 1600/- with 14 years regular service in the grade; 7% from Photographer in the Pay band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service. From above it is seen that Leading Hand Fire should have more qualification in comparison to the other feeder categories for Supervisor (NT) whereas all the incumbents have to perform the same responsibility with the same Grade Pay, i.e. Rs. 2400/- (Pre Revised Rs. 4000 to 6000).

It is to be kept in the mind that Vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) Notification G.S.R. 622(E), dated 29.08.2008 CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 has been introduced and the First Schedule Part-B, Section II states that Station Officer’s pay scale Rs. (4000 to 6000) (Fire Fighting Staff) has been upgraded to Rs. (4500 to 7000) and revised to GP Rs. 2800/-, whereas Supervisor (NT) is being granted the GP Rs. 2400/- on promotion from the post of Leading Hand Fire. Thus, the provisions of SRO 30 have not been framed considering the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 as the qualification of only one of the feeder posts Leading Hand Fire has been enhanced but the Grade Pay of promotional post Supervisor (NT) for Fire Fighting Staff has not been enhanced to Rs. 2800/-

In this regards, comments offered by D(Estt./NG) is enclosed for your ready reference. Therefore, your attention is invited to Rule 6 of SRO 30 which empowers the Central Government to relax the provisions of these rules to any class or category of persons and you are requested to take appropriate action so that existing Leading Hand Fire incumbents who are not fulfilling the requisite qualification may also be promoted to the post of Supervisor (NT) by granting relaxation in qualification as mentioned here in above.

Thanking you.

7th Pay Commission : Allowances Report to be Delayed by a Week As FM too busy with political agenda


7th Pay Commission : Allowances Report to be Delayed by a Week As FM too busy with political agenda

The submission of report on allowances is likely to be delayed by a week, primarily because of the Uri terror attack on an army base in Jammu and Kashmir and partly because of the BJP national executive meet held in the Kerala city of Kozhikode.

Sources said, The report of special committee on allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is to be delayed because of Uri attack and BJP national executive meet held in Kozhikode, Kerala.

An official in Anonymous said, The report of special committee on allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is to be delayed because of Uri attack and BJP national executive meet held in Kozhikode, Kerala. The committee on allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission could not submit its report as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was too busy due to political developments post attack on Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri and BJP’s national executive meet.

The report of the committee on allowances, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was to submit last week but the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was too busy with political agenda for the both incidents that so fatter allowances was not prioritised, sources in Finance Ministry quoted.

The committee on allowances was ready to submit its report even two months in advance. The committee is likely to call on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in this week, if the political situation returns to normal, sources added.

The 7th pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances. The government while issuing the notification for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission had announced to set up a special committee to examine the recommendations on allowances. The Committee was given four months to submit its report on allowances. The committee met employees unions leaders on August 4 and September 1 respectively before preparing its report. However the submission of the report is likely to be delayed by a week now.

The pay commission resolution issued on July 25 said, till a final decision on allowances is taken based on the recommendations of this Committee, all allowances will continue to be paid at existing rates in existing pay structure, as if the pay had not been revised with effect from January 1, 2016. The allowances had been a major bone of contention amongst majority of the central government employees.

The government issued the notification for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in July. The 7th Pay Commission notification confirmed that central government employees will get 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay at junior levels, which is the lowest in 70 years. The Cabinet also approved the increase in minimum pay Rs 18,000 from existing Rs 7,000.

DA & Linking Factor What's expected? DA Announcement and linking factor explored


DA & Linking Factor  What's expected?  DA Announcement and linking factor explored.

As you all know that DA is calculated based on AICPIN.

AICPIN is calculated based on the inflation and the cost of living in various cities. So, what's going to happen in 7th Pay Commission, let's read.

In Pay Commission III, the base year was used as (1960 =100).
In 4th Pay Commission, the DA was decided to pay twice a year and also for calculating the DA value the percentage increase in the 12 monthly average of All India Consumer Price Index (base 1960). Also the base year was (1982=100) as the base year.

In 5th Pay Commission, the DA was decided based on (1982=100) as the base year.
In 6th Pay Commission, the DA was decided based on (2001=100) as the base year.
In 7th Pay Commission, should we expect to have the base year as (2011=100)?

When the DA calculation change happened from base year 1982 to base year as 2001, there were a steep increase in the DA percentage, this is because the cost of living has increased multifold and also various cities and items was also included while calculating the real DA.

So, what's been recommend in the 7th CPC Report
Keeping in mind that the present formulation of DA has worked well over the years, and there are no demands for its alteration, the Commission recommends continuance of the existing formula and methodology for calculating the Dearness Allowance and also check out the gazette notification changes where the linking factor has been included as on AICPIN value as 2016.

IV. Dearness Allowance
Sl.No.Recommendation of the Seventh Central Pay CommissionDecision of the Chief Justice of India
1.Existing formula and methodology for calculating Dearness Allowance to continue (Para 8.17.37 of the Report) Accepted. The reference base for calculation of Dearness Allowance after coming into force of the revised Pay Structure shall undergo change accordingly and will be linked to the average index as on 01.01.2016

Though in (2001=100) the linking factor was 4.63, this lead to the calculation of DA with the average index as 115.76 as per 2005. For example, (2005 , 12 Month Average Index  536, so the linking factor as per record was 4.63).

All India and Centre-wise Linking factors between New Series of Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001 = 100 and the previous series on base 1982=100 (General Index).

Table No. 9.01

GROUP WISE LINKING FACTORS BETWEEN CURRENT SERIES OF ALL INDIA CONSUMER PRICE INDEX NUMBERS

FOR INDUSTRIAL WORKERS ON BASE: 2001 = 100 AND THE PREVIOUS SERIES ON BASE: 1982 = 100

I-BPan. Supari, Tobacco & Intoxicants6.16
IIFuel & Light4.77
IIIHousing6.18
IVClothing. Bedding & Footwear3.22
VMiscellaneous4.55
GENERAL INDEX4.63

Note: Figures on previous base 1982 = 100 can be obtained by multiplying the Index Number on current base 2001 = 100 by the linking factor and rounding off the result to the nearest whole number.
As you all now understand that the linking factor play a major role in getting the DA value, but the linking factor for year 2016 .

I was not able to find this data in Labour Bureau . We assume that if the linking factor of 2016 used, then we expect to get a higher DA percentage (assumption). This means it would be a real DA value as it would include various cities and the current inflation and CPI.

We hope that when the results are out they would be using the linking factor of 2016 as the gazette notification has this mentioned. Normally the DA announcement is release in September 1st week or 2nd week and hope this is announced shortly.

We have submitted memorandum to chairman 7th CPC also appealing to Consider out request judiciously and favourably. Fortunately, the 7th CPC has given the following favourable recommendations in its reports submitted to Government on 19.11.2015.

Para 9.5.18 (ii)
The commission recommends that remaining 33 Postal Dispensaries should be merged with CGHS. The Commission further recommends that all postal pensioners, irrespective of their participation in CGHS while in service, should be covered under CGHS after making requisite subscription.

In view of the above unambiguous recommendation of the 7th CPC and also the judgment of the Kerala High Court which already stands implemented in Kerala State, I request you to take up the case with appropriate authorities so that orders will be issued at the earliest extending the facilities of CGHS to all postal Pensioner and thereby ending the suffering of lakhs of postal pensioners.

Central Government has a proposal to Pay 1% DA from July 2016 as an interim Measure

The Sources Close to the Ministry of finance informed that there is proposal to Pay 1% DA from July as an interim Measure.It is said that the Central Government has not yet decided about the DA rates in Revised Pay scale.

Sources close to Finance Ministry told that the initial installment of DA to central government employees on the revised pay structure w.e.f 1.7.2016 is under consideration. Mean time there is a proposal to pay the DA from July 2016 at the rate of 1% to all CG Staffs. It will be a shocking news for CG Staff, since they are already expecting 2 to 3% DA from July 2016.

PRU is asked to submit Financial Implication of 1% DA

But the fact is the Department of Expenditure has directed the PRU of the Finance Ministry to furnish the details of additional Financial Implications for 1% increase of DA with effect from 1.7.2016 on the revised Pay Structure.

Further the Pay Research Unit has been requested to furnish financial implications for the Period of July 2016 to February 2017 on account of granting 1% DA from July 2016 to all central government employees including Armed Forces and UT Employees.

According to the above information, it is believed that announcement of 1% DA for July installment may be made any time soon.

Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may satisfy the Government Staff

Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may satisfy the Government Staff
It is believed that Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may at least satisfy the Government Staff, despite the fact that the Pay Hike is not sufficient.7th CPC Allowances

Bapus are annoyed about the inordinate delay in announcing Allowances. Talks are doing rounds that the government is deliberately playing the delaying tactics to make the CG Staff to accept the decisions of Allowance Committee.

Central Staff upset with Pay Hike
Already the Central Government Staff are very much upset with Pay Hike recommended for next Ten Long years. They in fact are not happy about the Arrears paid to them. Though the Govt has defended that the Pay Revision arrears will not be as high as in previous Pay Commission, because Arrears for couple of years had been paid in previous Pay Commission. But this time Pay Revision took place within seven months from the due date. So obviously the Pay Revision Arrears will be lesser than previous Pay Commission.

Though a Committee was formed to review the Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor, it is believed that it was wrapped up already. But the federations are Optimistic. They expect somehow the Committee will help them to pacify the Govt Servants on this particular issue.

But nonpayment of Allowances in revised Pay will certainly axe the feel good factor in Central Government Offices. They are started losing patience over it and expect the government to announce it soon. Because the take home pay after pay revision is unbelievably very low comparing to the previous Pay commission. The Central government should not reduce the rate of Allowances and it should be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016

CIRCULAR LETTER No.27/200/2016/33
24.5.2016
TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS, STATE FEDERATIONS AND
ALL INDIA BANKWISE ORGANISATIONS:
Dear Comrades,
Reg: Compassionate ground appointments in the Banks

Units are aware that despite the guidelines from the Government of India, some of the Banks are not implementing the scheme on compassionate ground appointment properly both in regard to eligibility and also on relaxations in qualifications. In the Associate Banks, even the Govt. guidelines have not been placed before the Boards of the respective Banks and unilateral instructions of the SBI are being adhered to whereby compassionate ground appointments are being denied. From AIBEA we have taken up the matter with the Finance Minister. Arising out of the recent UFBU meeting, UFBU also has addressed a letter to the Finance Minister and same is reproduced herein for the information of our units.

With greetings,
Yours Comradely,
C.H. VENKATACHALAM
GENERAL SECRETARY
UFBU Letter to Finance Minister
IBA/GOVT/2016/139
Date: 21st May, 2016
Shri Arun Jaitley,
Hon'ble Minister of Finance,
Government of India, New Delhi.

Respected Sir,

SCHEME FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT IN PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS

We are thankful to you for restoring the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) vide your letter D.O.F.No.18/2/2013 IR dated the 7th August 2014, conveying the approval of the Government to open the Compassionate Appointment in PSBs on the lines of Central Government with a request to the Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) to take appropriate action to circulate the revised scheme to all PSBs for adoption with the approval of their respective Boards. Further, the decision of the Government was conveyed by Ministry of Finance vide letter F.No.18/2/2013 IR dated 05.12.2014 that all PSBs can have both the options i.e., compassionate appointment or payment of lumpsum ex-gratia amount.

2. It will note be out of context to mention here that the issue of restoration of compassionate appointment scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) has been under discussions between UFBU and IBA since the last ten years and in accordance with the suggestion of Department of Financial Services, a joint proposal on broad parameters was submitted by IBA for approval of the Government. The sustained struggle by UFBU ended with your kind intervention resulting in approval as above from the Government of India.

3. However, we are shocked to observe that the managements of some of the banks have unilaterally decided to continue, with certain modifications, the scheme for compassionate appointment in exceptional circumstances only and the scheme for payment of Ex-gratia Lumpsum Amount in lieu of Compassionate Appointment, totally ignoring the approval of Government of India to open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) on the lines of Central Government.

4. Further, the concessions / relaxations, as provided under the scheme envisaged by the Government, as applicable to Central Government employees, such as exemption from the requirement of minimum educational qualification etc., have not been extended in the Banking Industry, thereby making them ineligible and denying the appointments.

5. The unilateral decisions of the managements as above, is not only total ignorance of the directives of the Government of India to open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines of Central Government but also deliberate utter disregard to the sustained struggle of bank workmen and officers for nearly a decade in getting the scheme approved by the Government.

6. Hence, we earnestly seek your kind intervention in the matter and arrange to appropriately instruct all the Public Sector Banks, which have not introduced the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines of Central Government, as approved by the Government of India and advised by you and also on provision of concessions / relaxations as applicable to Government employees, under the compassionate appointment scheme.

Please acknowledge receipt of this communication and advise us the developments in this regard.
With best regards
Yours sincerely,
Sd..

FinMin issues instructions for Budget 2017-18


FinMin issues instructions for Budget 2017-18

New Delhi: With Centre deciding to advance Budget 2017-18 presentation by about a month, the Finance Ministry has come out with comprehensive instructions for different ministries for completion of the exercise.

The instructions were issued following the Cabinet decision to merge rail and general budgets, do away with distinction between plan and non-plan expenditure, and advance date of budget presentation with a view to complete the entire exercise before March 31, the fiscal year end.

"Several structural reforms being undertaken this year, including, removal of distinction between plan and non-plan expenditure, advancement of budget presentation by about an month and merger of demands of Railways.

“Due to these changes, the timelines and informational requirements from the Ministries have also changed. These have been duly incorporated in the Budget Circular," said the circular.

It also contains the compendium of instructions issued from time to time by Ministry of Finance on various issues.

FinMin issues instructions for Budget 2017 to 18

The RE (Revised Estimate) meetings of ministries/ departments will be scheduled from October 17.

The annual exercise of budgeting aims at detailing the roadmap for efficient use of public resources taking into account the socio-economic and political priorities. Budgeting involves determination of what is to be done and achieved, the manner in which it is to be done and the resources required for the same.

With government deciding to do away with the Five year Plans post 12th Plan ending 2016-17, the Finance Ministry will carry out resource estimation for funding of various Central schemes and programmes as well as central funding for the State/UT schemes/programmes.

The ministry will be guided by the vision document being prepared by the NITI Aayog, as this will help in setting out the resource priorities of the government.

It has also asked the ministries to come up with multi-year projections of budgetary resources.

"This will need to follow the resource estimation of tax, non-tax and other receipts of the Centre for the budget year and the projection period in the medium term as per the FRBM Act," the circular said.

Expected DA Calculation starts from January 2017


Expected DA Calculation starts from January 2017

People started to calculate expected DA from January 2017 as 7 Months AICPIN Points are released so far. The Labor Bureau has released Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers for the Month of July 2016 today. Already It is confirmed that Dearness Allowance from July 2016 might be 2% as per the revised DA calculation.


Now, see the 7th CPC DA calculation Formula.

DA calculation Expected DA from July 2016 in Sixth and 7th Pay Commission

There are three main factors which determine the increase in percentage of DA in every pay Commission
1.DA calculation Formula
2.AICPIN for Industrial Workers
3. Base Average Index

1. Formula for DA calculation
Expected-DA-from-July-2016

2. AICPIN for Industrial Workers
The Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) is an important statistical/economic indicator. It was first introduced on scientific lines with base 1960=100 which was based on the results of Family Living Survey conducted in 1958-59 at 50 industrially important centres. The series was then, updated on base 1982=100 and a revision in 1999-2000 has further updated the base on 2001=100. The current series of CPI-IW with base year 2001=100 covers 78 industrially important centers spread across the country

3. Base Average Index
After neutralization of DA to revise the Pay and Allowance in Every Pay Commission, the Base Average Index will be modified taking into the account of 12 Months AICPIN points of previous year to neutralization of DA
1. From 1996 onwards, the average base Index was 306.33 (with base 1982=100)
How 306.33 was arrived?
To calculate the DA in Fifth pay commission, the 12 Month Average of AICPIN for the year 1995 was taken. The 12 months AICPIN Average of 1995 was 306.33
2. From 2006 onwards, the Avarage Base Index is 115.76 (with Base 2001 = 100)
How 115.76 was arrived…?
The Government has developed a new series with base 2001, with effect from January 2006. Back data series with base 2001 can be generated using linking factor 4.63
So the AICPIN Average of 2005 (with base 1982=100) i.e 536 had to be modified using linking factor 4.63 to adopt the new series in DA calculation. Thus the Base Index Number 115.76 was arrived
3. For 7th Pay Commission what will be the Base Index…?
As the 7th Pay commission recommendations will be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016, the AICPIN average of 2005 will be the Base Index for calculation of DA for 7th Pay Commission
So formula for Calculation of DA in 7th Pay Commission is
Expected-DA
Now expectation turned towards January 2017 DA. We need 12 Months AICPIN from January 2016 to December 2016 to calculate the expected DA from January 2017. The 7 month AICPIN Points released so far is given below.
January :269
February :267
March :268
April :271
May :275
June :277
July :280
Remaining Five months AICPIN Points from August to December are Required to calculate the rate of DA from January 2017. But assuming the trend of AICPIN Index by following three possibilities we can arrive the percentage of increase in Dearness Allowance approximately.

Assumption 1
If the AICPIN for Industrial workers remain stationary at 280 for next five months
The increase in DA from January 2017 will be 5 %
So the Total DA to be paid to CG staff from January 2017 will be 7%

Assumption II

If the CPI Index fluctuates between 282 to 278 points, even then there will be an increase of 5% DA from Jan 2017

Assumption III
If the AICPIN increases steadily by 2 points for successive months from August 2016 to December 2016
Then the DA to be paid from January will be enhanced by 6 %
So the trend of AICPIN Index if goes with above expectation, 5% to 6% increase can be expected in 
DA from January 2017.
