Prime Minister Narendra Modi told bureaucrats: Do not use social media for self- promotion or spend too much time online


Prime Minister Narendra Modi told bureaucrats: Do not use social media for self- promotion or spend too much time online

Use social media for public service and not self-promotion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told bureaucrats on Friday, even as he pulled up a section of officials who he said spent too much time online.

"If the social media is used for announcing the date for the anti-polio vaccination then it’s very good," Modi said in his address to bureaucrats on the 11th civil service day, asking officials to make better use of online interaction tools.

"But giving two drops of polio vaccine and then circulating the photo through social media should not be done," he added.

Modi has more than 29 million Twitter followers with whom he constantly interacts besides using the 140-character interface to highlight government programmes.

The Prime Minister said the power of social media should be used only for people’s welfare and public causes.

"I see officers of district level so busy on social media that most of the time is spent on this (social media)," Modi said.

Modi said he was aware of the power of social media but added that at his meetings with bureaucrats through video conferences, he has often seen them busy taking pictures of the meeting on their mobile phones

In this scheme, standard retiring pension, service pension were related to Rank and the prescribed length of service but it was neither linked to the emoluments nor to the service beyond the prescribed period of standard service.
(b) There is no such proposal.
(c) & (d): Does not arise.

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix level to the Railway employees promoted during the period 01.01.2016 to 31.12.2016.

Please refer to your letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B./Part I dated 06.01.2017, wherein it has been demanded that opportunity for revision of option for those staff promoted after the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 (i.e 28.07.2016) and also for those staff promoted between 01.01.2016 and 31.12.2016 to switch over o 7th CPC Pay Matrix from the date subsequent to date of Railway Board’s notification be provided.

2. In this context it is stated that option for switching over to 7th CPC has been circulated and clearly specified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules, 2016. Further, instructions for exercising the ,revised option in respect of officials who had Promotion/financial upgradation and had already exercised the option between the date of,effeet of recommendation (01.01.2016) and date of promulgation of RS(RP) Rules, 2Q3.6 ( 2016) has also been issued vide Board's letter RBE No 124/2016 dated 20.10.20,16.1t, has already been notified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules and further in the option form circulated along with RS(RP) Rules that the employee can elect to continue on ay Aa d and Grade Pay of his substantive/officiating post until the date of his next increment  at any subsequent increment raising he pay to particular limit or from the date of his promotion/upgradation.

3.Form the above, it can be appreciated that employee can continue such time, till promotion or vacation of the post and no cut off date (like 31.12.2016 mentioned in the reference) has been specified. However, the option exercised is final and one time dispensation has been extended to those promoted between 01.01.2016 and 28.07.2016 can not be extended in other cases. Decision on permitting further revision of option once taken can not belaken unilaterally by Ministry of Railways alone and needs to be taken by Ministry of Finance as it is a general policy matter pertaining to all Government employees.

Sub: - Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure - clarifications - regarding.

Following the notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Railway Board 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. These matters have been considered by Ministry of Finance and the points of doubts are clarified as under:-

Sl. 
No.
Point of doubtClarification
1.As per the provisions of FR 22 (I)(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 RS(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 RS(RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 28th 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 (l)(a)(1) at this stage.
Under the changed circumstances after notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employee   may   be  allowed to exercise   revised     option   for fixation   of     pay  under    FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such   revised  option shall    be  exercised  within   one month   of  issue    of   this  letter. Option so revised shall be final.
Whether employees appointed/ promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment 01.01.2016Since, the provisions of RS(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.
