7th Pay Commission recommendations for Defence Forces Personnel – An Overview

7th Pay Commission recommendations for Defence Forces Personnel – An Overview
7th Pay Commission has introduced a separate Pay Matrix Table for Defence Forces Personnel. The commission has explained in its report that the unique table structure has been simplified so that each employee can find his or her place in the proposed Matrix. All the employees belonging to various services will proceed according to their respective service conditions by earning increment on the basis of merit.  The Pay Matrix designed for the defence forces personnel is more compact than the civil pay matrix keeping in view the number of levels, age and retirement profile of the service personnel.
The entry pay for various ranks of defence forces personnel, other than MNS Offices, has been arrived at on the same premise, as has been done in the case of civilian. As an illustration, entry pay for a Captain has been arrived at as follows:
Entry pay in existing pay band + (Residency Period for promotion to Captain from Lieutenant x annual increment) + grade pay of the rank of Captain = Rs.15,600 + (2 x Rs.630) +Rs.6,100 = Rs.22,960.
The starting point of a Sepoy (and equivalent), the entry level personnel in the defence forces, has been fixed in the Defence Pay Matrix at Rs.21,700. The starting point in the existing pay structure is Rs.8,460 for a Sepoy/equivalent. The fitment in the new matrix is essentially a multiple factor of 2.57. This multiple is the ratio of the new minimum pay arrived at by the Commission (Rs.18,000) and the existing minimum pay (Rs.7,000). The fitment factor is being applied uniformly to all employees. It includes a factor of 2.25 to account for DA neutralisation, assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay as on 01.01.2016. The actual raise/fitment being recommended by the Commission is 14.29 percent. An identical fitment of 2.57 has also been applied to the existing rates of Military Service Pay (MSP), applicable to defence forces personnel only.

Central Government Staffs to share photos, nuggets of holidays

Central Government Staffs to share photos, nuggets of holidays

All Central government employees will soon be sharing their photos and interesting details of holidays.
Besides, they will be exempted from informing their controlling officers before going on holiday and a self-certification from them would suffice.

These are some of the changes the Centre has decided to make in the relevant rules for availing leave travel concession (LTC).

All LTC claims will be settled in a maximum of one-month’s time, as per the new rules. An additional ten days will be given to settle dues related to LTC travels by an employee in case he is posted away from the headquarters.

“Employees may be encouraged to share interesting insights and pictures, if any, of the destination he or she visited while availing LTC on an appropriate forum,” the rules finalised by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.

“Sometimes, the government servants claim that failure to follow the correct procedure was on account of a lack of knowledge of the rules or instructions while in the other cases the delay is caused in the late processing of LTC claims.

“To remove these bottlenecks, this department has decided to simplify the procedure of application and make the procedure of processing of LTC claims time-bound,” the DoPT said.

Who is a Central Government Employee? – Definition given by 7th Central Pay Commission

Who is a Central Government Employee? – Definition given by 7th Central Pay Commission

Defining a Central Government Employee : The III CPC had attempted to define who is a Central Government employee. It stated that “All persons in the civil services of the Central Government or holding civil posts under that government and paid out of the Consolidated Fund of India.”

The Commission is in broad agreement with what has been stated in the III CPC Report.

For the purposes of its work, the Commission defines Central Government employees as all persons in the civil services of the Central Government or holding civil posts under that government and paid Salaries out of the Consolidated Fund of India. This however, does not include such persons appointed to serve Parliament or the Union Judiciary.

The Commission has obtained data regarding 33.02 lakh Central Government civil personnel, in Civil Ministries/Departments, Defence (Civilians), Posts and Railways5. The analysis includes 0.77 lakh personnel of Delhi Police, who are paid salaries from the Police grant of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Views of Important Stakeholders on Central Government Personnel

The Commission has received representations/memoranda on issues that broadly involve the strength, deployment and expenditure on Central Government personnel.

Joint Consultative Machinery-Staff Side: On the size and nature of government, the JCM-Staff Side has made the following submissions to the Commission:

i. Majority of Central Government employees (88 percent) are either industrial or operational staff and therefore the contention that wage bill of the Central Government is for administrative purpose is ill conceived.
ii. Existence of a large array of personnel employed by the government through contract, pushing a major segment of government functions into informal sector.
iii. Expenditure on pay and allowances over the years as a percentage of revenue receipts and revenue expenditure has been falling.

North Block, New Delhi- 110 001
Subject: – Raising of Bonus Payment Ceiling to the Central Government Employees.
Reference: – The payment of Bonus (Amendment) Bill 2015.
Sir,
The Payment of Bonus (Amendment) Bill 2015 was passed by both the houses of the Parliament. The amendment provides that the existing Ceiling limit of Bonus for 30 days Rs. 3,500/- is enhanced to Rs. 7,000/- for 30 days. This amendment will take effect from 01.04.2014 (A copy of the Bill passed in the Parliament is enclosed for your kind ready reference).
You are aware that any change in Bonus Act would be an indicator while deciding the Payment of Bonus to the Central Government Employees. Accordingly, every time when Bonus Act is amended raising the payment ceiling limit, it is extended to Central Government Employees also. This issue was also raised by the Staff Side in the Standing Committee Meeting of National Council (JCM) held on 09th October, 2015.
It is therefore requested that steps may be taken for issuing Government Orders for enhancing the Bonus Payment Ceiling limit of Central Government Employees both PLB and Adhoc Bonus to Rs. 7,000/- w.e.f 01.04.2014 and arrears of PLB and Adhoc Bonus for the year 2014-2015 may be paid to the employees.
An earlier and favorable action is solicited.
Thanking you,
Yours Sincerely,
Sd/-
