CIRCULAR
PFRDA/2018/01/PF/01
Date: 4th May, 2018
Subject: Common Stewardship Code

1.  National Pension System strives to provide old age income security to its subscribers of which NPS Trust is the legal owner of the funds and the Pension Funds undertaking investment of such monies as per the investment guidelines approved by the Authority. Pension Funds are expected to shoulder greater responsibility towards the subscribers/beneficiaries by enhancing monitoring and engagement with the investee companies. Such activities are commonly referred to as 'Stewardship Responsibilities' of the institutional investors and asset managers and are intended to protect the subscribers' pension wealth. Such increased engagement is also seen as an important step towards improved corporate governance in the investee companies and gives a greater fillip to the protection of the interest of subscribers in such companies.

2. In view of the above, in consultation with Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), a proposal for introducing a Stewardship Code in India was examined by a sub¬committee of the Financial Stability and Development Council (FSDC) and approved.

3. All the Pension Funds under the NPS architecture shall follow the Stewardship Code as placed at Annex including the voting policy dated 20.04.2017, which is already recognized in such principles and is effective.

4. The principles (other than voting policy which is already in effect) enumerated in the Code shall be effective from the date of issuance.

5. This Circular is issued in exercise of the powers conferred under Sections 14 (1) read with 14 (2) (a) & (b) of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority Act, 2013.

Subject: Review of the Recruitment Rules/Service Rules (RRs/SRs) - reg.

DOPT vide OM AB-14017/14/2018-Estt.(RR) dated 31.12.2010 issued instructions laying down guidelines for framing/ amendment/relaxation of Recruitment Rules. Para 3.1.5 Of the guidelines provide that the recruitment/ rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view effecting such change as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reductions in the strength of the lower and higher-level posts. Subsequently, this Division vide OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dated 25.03.2014 re-iterated these instructions.

2. However, it has come to the notice of this Department that many Ministries/Departments are not undertaking the aforesaid exercise as stipulated. Resultantly, recruitment/promotion of officers/ employees are continued to be made on the basis of RRs which are not updated and continued to reflect old positions. It is a matter of concern that the decisions taken by the Government on the basis of pay Commission Recommendations, Court directions, Expert Committee Recommendations etc remain un-reflected in the relevant RRs/SRs

3. Since RRs are statutory in nature and all promotions/appointments are made as the provisions in the RRs/SRs, it is imperative that the RRs/SRs are updated in accordance with DoP&T instructions issued from time to lime. In view of this, Ministries/Departments are impressed upon to immediately undertake the exercise for review Of existing RRs/SRs which have not been amended in the last five years and intimate this Department about the outcome of the exercise so undertaken.

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01-01-2006 and the date of notification of RS (RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and the feeder posts in a common Grade fixation of pay clarifications.

Ref: Railway Board's letter No.PC-VI/2015/IC/1 dated 08-04 -2016(RBE No.33/2016)Circulating Ministry of Finance's O.M.No.F- 2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16-10-2015

Attention is invited to Board's letter dated 08-04-2016 (RBE No.33/2016) by which instructions contained in M/o Finance's OM dated 16-10-2015 have been applied mutatis mutandis on Indian Railways. In the M/o Finance's OM dated 16-10- 2015, the cut-off date for applicability of instructions contained has been mentioned as 29-08-2008 at one place and 29-09-2008 at another place of para 5 of the said OM. This seems to have caused confusion in some Railway/Units and some requests for clarifications have been made to Board's office on the issue.

2. The date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules,2008 was 29-08-2008 and therefore, as per M/O Finance OM dated 16-10-2015, the pay fixation benefit was available in cases of promotion occurring between 01-01-2006 till 29-08-2008 where feeder and promotional grades were subsequently merged in 6th CPC. The date 29-09- 2008 mentioned in para 5 of M/o Finance's OM NO.F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16-10-2015 is therefore evidently a typographical error which should logically be read as 29-08-2008. In any case, the cut -off date for applicability of provisions contained in letter dated 08-04-2016 (RBE NO.33/2016) in context of Railway employees is 04-09-2008 (i.e dated of notification of RS(RP)Rules,2008) as has already been explicitly clarified by Ministry Of Finance vide their OM No.530744/E III-A/2017 dated 20-11-2017 to this office. It was based on this clarification that Board's letter No.PC-VI/2015/IC/1 (RBE No.196/2017) was issued on 29- 12-2017.

Text of letter No. AIBOC/2018/28 dated 01. 05. 2018
The Additional Secretary,
Department of Financial Services
Govt of India
NEW DELHI

Dear Sir,

Issues affecting Banking Sector
Thank you very much for inviting us for a discussion. We thank the Ministry for the following:
1. The IBA has called us for the Wage Negotiation on 5th May 2018 after our meeting with the Secretary, DFS on 21. 03. 2018.
2. The implementation of Ind As has been deferred by one year giving small relief to Banks.
3. RBI has reduced the provision for accounts transferred to NCLT by 40% instead of 50%.
4. The provision for Investment Fluctuation has been allowed to be spread for 4 quarters instead of one.
However the following issues remain and we request your urgent intervention.

Wage Revision: The issue of restricted mandate has not been settled yet. SBI, PNB, UBI, Indian Bank, CBI and BOB have given restricted mandate. This requires your personal intervention.
There is widespread disenchantment with the salary structure. Recently Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telengana Govts. have given a good salary hike. Hence, we request your intervention for a decent wage hike without looking at the Net Profit as Banks are instrumental in implementing the Govt. schemes without any compensation. Moreover, in the last 3 years Banks have written off Rs. 2,41,000 Crores and our Wage Revision cost will be negligible in comparison. Without employee satisfaction the Banks can't grow.

The starting basic of an officer in Govt is Rs. 56100/-
The starting basic of an officer in RBI is Rs. 35150 /-
The starting basic of an officer in LIC is Rs. 33745/-
The starting basic of an officer in Bank is Rs. 23700/-

Basic Pay is crucial for everything including superannuation. Hence we request that it should be similar to that of the Central Govt. Officers as presented by the Pillai Committee.
Our other demands are:

i) Five Day Week
ii) Regulated Working Hours
iii) Child care leave for ladies with salary
iv) Crèche facility
v) Assured Pension etc.

[Copy of Charter of Demands & Further Notes submitted to IBA enclosed]

Appointment of Officer Director / Employee Director. At present no Public Sector Bank has an Officer Director or Employee Director.
Implementation of the Recommendation of the Parliament Standing Committee on NPA. If the recommendations are implemented the entire Banking Industry can be saved. (Copy of the Report enclosed)

Please don't levy tax on Gross Profit. The tax should be on net profit. RBI should provide interest on CRR which at present is almost one lakh crores. This will help the Banks.

Reimburse Expenditure on Govt Schemes. The expenditure on Jandhan, Pension Yojana and other Govt Schemes if reimbursed will help the Banks.

Stop Cross Selling: In the name of Universal Banking we have allowed Banks to sell insurance, Mutual Funds & other products. The huge incentive has lead to misselling. Please intervene. (Note Enclosed)

Review PCA: The 11 banks under PCA have not improved their performance. Hence a review is needed.

Review IBC & NCLT: Both have created lot of problems. They are not helping Banks but benefit the defaulters and new purchasers of the companies. Urgent steps are needed.
Yours faithfully,

Important Announcements and Approvals in Board Meeting of PFRDA

Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) is established by the Government of India for regulation and development of Pension Sector in order to protect the old age income security of subscribers. PFRDA takes various initiatives from time to time in order to simplify and improve the operational issues in National Pension System (NPS) like new functionality development under NPS architecture, simplification of account opening, withdrawal, grievance management etc.
In this regard, during the recently held Board Meeting some important decisions were taken to improve the operational and regulation issues in National Pension System (NPS). Some of the decisions taken in the Board Meeting are as follows:
  • Budget announcement- Rating criteria for investments- Proposal on changing the investment grade rating from ‘AA’ to ‘A’ for corporate bonds was approved. The change is subject to a cap on investments in ‘A’ rated bonds to be not more than 10% of the overall Corporate Bond portfolio of the Pension Funds. This initiative will enlarge the scope of investment for the Fund Managers while ensuring credit quality.
  • Introduction of a Common Stewardship Code: The proposal on adoption of Common Stewardship Code, as a measure of good Corporate Governance, was approved. Further, it was also approved that the Principles enumerated in such code shall be circulated to all Pension Funds for compliance and implementation. Adoption of these Principles by Pension Funds will improve their engagement with investee companies and benefit subscribers.
  • Modification in Partial Withdrawal rules under NPS: Partial withdrawals will now be allowed to NPS subscribers who wish to improve their employability or acquire new skills by pursuing higher education/ acquiring professional and technical qualifications. Further, individual NPS subscribers who wish to set up a new business/ acquire new business will also be allowed to make partial withdrawals from his contributions. Other terms applicable to partial withdrawals will remain unchanged.
  • Increasing cap on equity investment in active choice to 75% from current 50% for Private Sector Subscribers: Presently there is a cap of 50% on equity investment under active choice in NPS. The proposal on increasing cap on equity investment in active choice to 75% from currently 50% has been approved by the Board. However, it comes with a clause of tapering of the equity allocation after the age of 50 years.
  • Currently, NPS and APY have a cumulative subscriber base of over 2.13 crore with total Asset Under Management (AUM) of more than Rs. 2.38 lakh crore.
