Defence personnel to get disability pension under old norms

Defence personnel to get disability pension under old norms

New Delhi: Under attack for introducing slab-based disability pension, Defence Ministry today said armed forces personnel would continue to get such pension based on percentage system till the Anomaly Committee came out with a report on the issue.

There was widespread criticism from opposition parties and the military establishment over a letter issued on September 30 which had introduced a slab-based system, as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission, for determining the disability pension for defence forces.

Following this, the Ministry had referred the matter to the Anomaly Committee.

However, there was confusion as to what system would be used to determine disability pension.

Till the Committee comes out with a report, existing percentage system will be used to determine disability pension, defence sources said.

Earlier, the Defence Ministry had said the 7th CPC had recommended a slab-based system for determining disability pension, which was accepted by the government.

A percentage-based system was followed under the 6th CPC regime for calculating disability pension for defence forces personnel as well as civilians.

What the military personnel are upset about is that civilians will continue to be paid pension according to the earlier percentage system, which means that a civilian employee will get higher disability pension than his military counterpart.

Railway Unions demand 3% DA hike


Railway Unions demand 3% DA hike

New Delhi: Expressing “dissatisfaction” over over the announcement of 2 per cent increase in dearness allowance by the government, railway unions have demanded it be raised to 3 per cent.

We have expressed dissatisfaction over the announcement of a meagre 2 per cent rise in DA by the Central government from July 1, 2016, National Federation of Indian Railwaymen M Raghavaiah said.

Ahead of Diwali, the Centre has announced 2 per cent dearness allowance for Central government employees effective from July.

“Central government employees and pensioners have been waiting eagerly for the announcement of DA since September 2016. But we are disappointed that the government has announced only 2 per cent whereas the 12-month average of Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016, works out to be 2.92 per cent,” Raghavaiah said and added “The Government ought to have been considerate in announcing this half-yearly hike in DA and rounded off to 3 per cent.”

All India Railwaymen Federation General Secretary S Gopal Mishra said 2 per cent DA is not satisfactory and it should be raised to 3 per cent.

Autonomous Bodies invited to join the Confederation’s agitational programme

Autonomous Bodies invited to join the Confederation’s agitational programme
CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
1st Floor, North Avenue PO Building, New Delhi- 110001

No. Confdn/Genl/2016-19
Dated : 28.10.2016

AN APPEAL TO EMPLOYEES & ORGANISATIONS OF GOVT. OF INDIA AUTONOMOUS BODIES
To
All Organisations & Employees of
Govt. of India Autonomous Bodies.

Dear Friends and Comrades,
As you are aware, the extension of benefits of revised pay structure as per CCS (RP) Rules 2016, to employees working in autonomous bodies, is still pending. There is total uncertainty regarding grant of 7th CPC benefits. Bonus payment is also pending. Everything depends upon the policy decision of the Government. The employees of autonomous bodies are totally upset, frustrated and disappointed. Discontentment of the employees are growing day by day. As the autonomous bodies are scattered all over the country, a joint struggle by them alone is not an immediate possibility.
It is in this background, the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers has decided to include the demand for wage revision of autonomous employees also in its charter of demands and agitational programmes. Accordingly mass demonstrations were conducted in front of all offices on 20-10-2016. The next phase of programme is mass dharna on 7th November 2016. Third phase is massive Parliament March on 15th December 2016 at Jantar Mantar (Parliament Street), New Delhi.
I request all the organisations and employees of autonomous bodies to join the Confederation’s agitational programme so that Government will understand your anger, protest and discontentment. I appeal to you all, to participate in the Parliament March on 15th December 2016, with your flags, banners and placards. Let the message go to the Government that the employees of autonomous bodies will not continue to keep silent and may be forced to go for direct action, including strike if situation warrants, for their legitimate demands.
Come one, Come all, Come in hundreds and thousands.
Let us make the Parliament March a historic success.
Govt. will not be allowed to indefinitely delay or deny our rights.
Fraternally Yours,
M. Krishnan,
Secretary General, Confederation
