7th Pay Commission: Allowance Report In 'Ending' Stage, Committee members are busy in notes preparation

NDTV Profit News :
The 7th pay commission had examined a total of 196 existing allowances and recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming of 37 allowances.

The Ashok Lavasa committee examining 7th pay recommendations on allowances is in the final stage of preparing its report, which is likely to be submitted to the government soon, a top employee union official said. The allowance committee is in the process of preparing notes for it to be taken up by the government, he added. There has not been any official word on whether the allowance committee has been submitted. The government had earlier said that the decision on allowances will be taken after the committee on 7th pay commission recommendations submits its report. Earlier, another union official had attributed the delay in submission of the report to non-availability of allowance panel members. "I believe that there has been some delay in the finalisation of the report as some allowance panel members were outside the country on an official visit," the union official said.

The allowance committee had held a meeting in this regard on April 6 which some employee union officials termed as "conclusive". The 7th pay commission had examined a total of 196 existing allowances and recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming of 37 allowances.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance or HRA be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent when DA crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when DA crosses 100 per cent. With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent.

At a meeting held on March 28, the allowance committee on 7th pay commission recommendations had sought comments from the ministries of defence, railways and posts on treatment of some allowances. The government had in June accepted the recommendation of Justice AK Mathur-headed Seventh Pay Commission in respect of the hike in basic pay and pension. But the 7th pay commission's recommendations relating to allowances were referred to the Ashok Lavasa committee.

Meanwhile, a delegation of faculty members of various universities had on April 19 approached the UGC seeking redressal of their demands including the request to make public a committee's report on the 7th pay commission. Union HRD Minister Prakash Javdekar had earlier said that a committee to review the recommendations made by a UGC panel on implementation of the 7th pay commission in educational institutions has been formed.

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

ANSWERED ON: 07.04.2017

Pension Scheme for Armed Forces

RAGHAV LAKHANPAL
Will the Minister of DEFENCE be pleased to state:-

(a) whether the Government proposes to restore the old pension scheme of the Armed Forces that was in vogue till 1971 which clearly defined pension as 70 per cent of last pay drawn and if so, the details thereof;
(b) the time by which the Government plans to set up a committee to review the present pension scheme which pegs pension at 50 per cent of last pay drawn;
(c) if so, the details thereof; and

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE (DR. SUBHASH BHAMRE) IN THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE
(a) No, Madam. Under the old pension scheme, the concept of standard period of service and standard rate of pension was in vogue for Armed Forces personnel. 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.
