Cabinet approves Extension of Article 340 to examine the issue of sub-categorization within Other Backward Classes in the Central List

Cabinet approves Extension, of tenure of the Commission constituted under Article 340 of the constitution to examine the issue of sub-categorization within Other Backward Classes in the Central List

Cabinet approves Extension of Article 340 to examine the issue of sub-categorization within Other Backward Classes in the Central List


22 JAN 2020

The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved the extension of the term of the Commission to examine the issue of Sub-categorization of Other Backward Classes, by six months that is up to 31.7.2020.

The Cabinet has also approved addition of following Term of Reference to the existing Terms of Reference of the “Commission” –

“iv. to study the various Entries in the “Central List of OBCs and recommend correction of any repetitions, ambiguities, inconsistencies and errors of spelling or transcription.”

Impact:

The Communities in the existing list of OBCs which have not been able to get any major benefit of the scheme of reservation for OBCs for appointment in Central Government posts & for admission in Central Government Educational Institutions are expected to be benefitted upon implementation of the recommendations of the Commission. The Commission is likely to make recommendations for benefit of such marginalized communities in the Central List of OBCs.

Financial Implications:

The expenditure involved are related to the establishment and administration costs of the Commission, which would continue to be borne by the Department of Social Justice and Empowerment.

Benefits:

All persons belonging to the castes/communities which are included in the Central List of SEBCs but which have not been able to get any major benefit of the existing scheme of reservation for OBCs in Central Government posts & for admission in Central Government Educational Institutions would be benefitted.

Implementation strategy and targets:

Orders for extension of the term of the Commission and addition in its Terms of Reference will be notified in the Gazette ‘in the form of an Order made by the President, after receipt of the approval of the Hon’ble President to the same.

Background:

The Commission was constituted under article 340 of the Constitution with the approval of President on 2nd October, 2017. The Commission, headed by Justice (Retd.) Smt. G. Rohini commenced functioning on 11th October, 2017 and has since interacted with all the Stats /UTs which have subcategorized OBCs, and the State Backward Classes Commissions. The Commission has come to the view that it would require some more time to submit, its report since the repetitions, ambiguities, inconsistencies and errors of spelling or transcription etc appearing in the existing Central List of OBCs need to be cleared. Hence the Commission has sought extension of its term by six, that is upto 31st July 2020 and also addition in its existing Terms of Reference.

Sub: Accident Free service award to the employee retired after 01.01.2016.

Ref: Board’s letter of even no. dated 28.11.2018

Vide Board’s letter referred above, it was clarified that the Accident Free Service Award to the staff retired after 01.01.2016 shall be paid as per the salary structure of 7th CPC and no arrears shall be admissible to whom the award is already disbursed.

Various Railways have brought out that some of the staff that had retired between 01.01.2016 & 28.11.2018 have been paid Accident Free Service Award as per 6th CPC pay structure while some of them have still not been paid the award due to various reasons and would therefore, be eligible for award as per 7th CPC pay structure. This would lead to different treatment meted out to two sets of staff retired during the same period.

In this respect, Board has examined the matter and it has been decided that the Accident Free Service Award will be paid as per 7th CPC pay structure w.e.f. 01.07.2017, the date on which revised rate of allowances as per the 7th CPC came into effect. Therefore, the staff who have retired between 01.07.2017 & 28.11.2018 and have been paid as per 6th CPC pay structure will be eligible for payment of arrears of the Accident Free Service Award as per 7th CPC pay structure.

This issues with the concurrence of Finance Directorate of Ministry of Railways.
