Expected dearness allowance from July 2014: Central Government Employees

Expected dearness allowance from July 2014: Central Government Employees

Recently the issue of 50% DA Merger has reached the peak of expectations. Though the central government knew this development, the govt has knowingly said nothing against or favor of 50% DA Merger. Its silence on this important issue simply added the fuel to the fire of expectation. After the Election announcement, the hope on 50% DA merger is now slowly eroding. Many central government employees Federations expressed their disappointment with 7th CPC Terms of reference and merger of 50% DA was not considered by central government. After this disappointment the central government employees are now getting back to their routines. So they have started thinking about what next..!

As the rate of dearness allowance from January 2014 has been declared, the necessary order for payment of Additional installment of Dearness Allowance from January 2014 has to be issued by Finance Ministry. The enhanced rate of Dearness allowance will be paid w.e.f .1.1.2014. The enhanced rate will be paid with the disbursement of salary for the month of March 2014. The increase of dearness allowance became due from January 2014 to February 2014 will be paid as arrears.

Let us move on to ‘Expected dearness allowance from July 2014’


what will be the rate of DA from July 2014 ?

          The AICPIN for Industrial Workers for Seven Months from July 2013 to January 2014 have been released by Labour Bureau. The AICPIN for last two Months i.e December2013 and January 2014 have been declined by 4 and 2 points and pegged at 239 and 237 respectively. At present it is quite difficult to predict the trend of the Consumer Price Index for remaining 5 Months, as so many factors like election and policies of new government involved in it.

However, according to these seven months AICPIN, we have three Probabilities …

No
Probabilities
Expected Increase in Dearness allowance from      July 2014
Expected  DA from July 2014
1
If this declining trend continues for remaining 5 Months by 1 or 2 points
3%
103%
2
If the trend continues with movement between plus or Minus 2 points
5%
105%
3
If it continues with increasing trend by 2 points
7%
107%

According to the AICPIN released till now, the above possibilities have been arrived. As per above prediction the expected dearness allowance from July 2014 will be from 103% to 107%

Budget 2014 – CII suggests raising 80C deductions to Rs. 2.5 Lakhs

Budget 2014 – CII suggests raising 80C deductions to Rs. 2.5 Lakhs

In its Pre-Budget wish list regarding Income Tax 80C, the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) has suggested to the Finance Ministry that the consolidated deduction under 80C be raised from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakhs.

Most Central Government employees have savings schemes that are linked with General Provident Fund. Under this scheme, the employee not only gets interest for the money saved, but also enjoys the option to withdraw the money whenever required. The money is also entitled to exemption under Section 80C. It has to be mentioned here that new employees (appointed on or after 2004) do not have this option.

If the Income tax deduction is raised from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakh under Section 80C, then there are possibilities that savings will increase among the employees.

It has to be mentioned that CII has suggested that a separate section be created for Tuition fees (Children Education Allowance). Although the allowance given for the higher education of the children is exempted from income tax under Section 80C, the Rs. 1 lakh exemption is considered to be very low. Now a amount of one lakh is exempt form income tax for all long and short term saving schemes including General Provident Funds.

CII has also suggested that the Rs. 1.5 lakh exemption being granted for house loan interests should be raised to Rs. 5 lakhs under Income Tax Section 24 for self-occupied property.

PENDING DEMANDS AND NEW GOVERNMENT - CONFEDERATION NEWS

PENDING DEMANDS AND NEW GOVERNMENT - CONFEDERATION NEWS
"Chairman, 7th CPC, has also made it clear that unless the Government refer the issues of DA merger, Interim relief and GDS issues to the Commission, it will not consider these issues.  Hence the ball is now in the Government’s court".
PENDING DEMANDS AND NEW GOVERNMENT 
New Central Government under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi has taken charge with a clear majority in the Lok Sabha election.  People of the country and the Central Government employees who suffered a lot under the UPA Government, have voted for a change.  Now it is the turn of NDA Government.  Coming days will prove whether the selection made by the voters is correct or not.
Central Government employees have to take a cautious approach towards the new Government.  As the new Government has just taken over charge and expectations are very high, jumping into any sudden conclusion may not be correct on our part.  We have to give reasonable time to the new government to make its stand clear on the issues agitating the minds of the Central Government employees.  Let us hope that our past experience in the 2000 December 14 days Postal strike when the NDA Government was in power, the support extended by the party leading NDA to the UPA Government for introducing and passing the PFRDA Bill in Parliament, the infamous downsizing order of 2001 issued by the NDA Government which paved way for abolition of thousands of vacant posts in Central Government Departments and refusal to concede any of the main demands of Gramin Dak Sevaks will not be repeated by the new Government.
The maiden budget of the new Government to be presented in Parliament in July 2014 may give us an idea on the thinking of the Government and also the attitude of the Government towards the problems faced by the common people and the Central Government employees.  Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers has placed our demands before the new Government.  JCM National Council staff side has also written to the Finance Minister and Cabinet Secretary.  Our demands are not new.  Demands raised before the UPA Government are again placed before the NDA Government.
               
While constituting 7th Central Pay Commission the UPA Government has refused to include the main demands of the Central Government employees in the terms of reference viz:
(1) Grant of merger of DA 
(2) Grant of interim relief and 
(3) inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks under the purview of 7th CPC.  
Confederation has conducted 48 hours strike in February 2014, just before the General Election is declared, demanding settlement of the 15 points charter of demands which includes the above three main demands also.  As General Election was declared we could not move further.  Central Government employees expect that the new Government will consider positively, the demands raised in the 48 hours strike.
               
If the new Government also take the same stand as that of previous UPA Government and refuse to concede our genuine demands, the Central Government employees will be forced to tread the path of struggle again. Before embarking upon such a struggle, our prime duty is to build up largest unity among all sections of the Central Government employees.  Confederation is making all out effort in this direction especially to build up total unity among JCM staff side organisations.  We are even ready to make certain compromises for the sake of unity.
               
We have to give enough time to the new Government and we are ready to wait.  But we cannot wait indefinitely. 7th CPC has already commenced its work and has fixed target dates for submission of memorandums by Federations and Unions/Associations.  Chairman, 7th CPC, has also made it clear that unless the Government refer the issues of DA merger, Interim relief and GDS issues to the Commission, it will not consider these issues.  Hence the ball is now in the Government’s court.  Let us see how the things move.  Let us also be ready to face any situation.

Reducing Delays in First Payment of Pension – Submission of Undertaking along with Pension Papers – Issue of PPO on the Date of Retirement – Reg

Reducing Delays in First Payment of Pension – Submission of Undertaking along with Pension Papers – Issue of PPO on the Date of Retirement – Reg


The Government has observed that the first payment of pension after retirement gets delayed mainly due to two reasons. One, the delay in receipt of intimation by the pensioner that pension papers have reached the bank and two, delay on part of the pensioner in approaching the bank for submission of undertaking that he shall refund or make good any amount to which he is not entitled.


In a recent workshop with Pension Secretaries of State Governments, Dr. Jitendra Singh, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions stated that the Government had decided that the required “Undertaking” may be obtained by the Head of Office from the retiring Government servant and forwarded to the pension disbursing bank along with the Pension Payment Order (PPO). The bank shall credit the pension to the account of the pensioner as soon as this Undertaking is received along with the pension documents. The pensioner would no longer be required to visit the bank to activate the first payment of pension.

This change in procedure has one additional advantage that the PPO can now be handed over in person to the retiring employee along with other retirement dues. Earlier the pensioner had to approach the bank to his copy of PPO.

With this change in rules and procedures, the pensioners would be saved considerable inconvenience and delay and his pension will commence as soon as he retires.

This and other reform initiatives were brought forth by Dr. Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in his meeting with the Pension Secretaries of State Governments held on June 12, 2014.

Dopt Orders on Posting of Government employees who have differently abled dependents

Dopt Orders on Posting of Government employees who have differently abled dependents 
No.42011/3/2014-Estt.(Res.) 
Government of India 
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions 
Department of Personnel and Training 
North Block, New Delhi 
Dated the 6th June, 2014 
OFFICE MEMORANDUM 
Sub: Posting of Government employees who have differently abled dependents - reg. 
There has been demand that a Government employee who is a care giver of the disabled child may not have to suffer due to displacement by means of routine transfer/rotational transfers. This demand has been made on the ground that a Government employee raises a kind of support system for his/her disabled child over a 
period of time in the locality where he/she resides which helps them in the rehabilitation. 

2. The matter has been examined. Rehabilitation is a process aimed at enabling persons with disabilities to reach and maintain their optimal physical, sensory, intellectual, and psychiatric or a social functional level. The support system comprises of preferred linguistic zone, school/academic level, administration, neighbours, tutors/special educators, friends, medical care including hospitals, therapists and doctors, etc. Thus, rehabilitation is a continuous process and creation of such support system takes years together.
3. Considering that the Government employee.who has disabled child serve as the main care giver of such child, any displacement of such Government employee will have a bearing on the systemic rehabilitation of the disabled child since the new environment/set up could prove to be a hindrance for the rehabilitation process of the child. Therefore, a Government servant who is also a care giver of disabled child may be exempted from the routine exercise of transfer/rotational transfer subject to the administrative constraints.
The word 'disabled' includes
(i) blindness or low vision 
(ii) hearing impairment 
(iii) locomotor disability or Cerebral Palsy 
(iv) leprosy cured 
(v) mental retardation 
(vi) mental illness and
(vii) multiple disabilities. 
4. Upbringing and rehabilitation of disabled child requires financial support. Making the Government employee to choose voluntary retirement on the pretext of routine transfer/rotation transfer would have adverse impact on the rehabilitation process of the disabled child.
5. This issues with the approval of MoS(PP).
6. All the Ministries/Departments, etc. are requested to bring these instructions to the notice of all concerned under their control.

LTC - Leave Travel Concession – Air Travel concession ends today

LTC - Leave Travel Concession – Air Travel concession ends today

Concession of Air travel, which the Central Government employees have been enjoying for the past 6 years, comes to an end today. It is saddening to see that a scheme, that was so popular and enjoyed by all across ranks, has come to an end.

Travelling by airplane with the entire family is still not an ordinary feat for the majority of Indians. It therefore comes as no surprise that the ones who didn’t utilize this opportunity are regretting it.

For countless Central Government employees who completed a year in service and took their parents and siblings on a plane journey, it will be a memory worth cherishing for a very long time.

Former employees, who had served for 30-40 years but didn’t enjoy this facility, sure have their regrets. No matter how sophisticated and comfortable buses, trains and ships are, they can’t quite match the thrill of travelling by air.

There are no indications yet that the scheme could be extended, but one can be sure only after the 2014-15 General Budget is presented.

Central Government is planning to raise the Income Tax exemption slab to Rs. 5 Lakhs

Court case related to CPWD regarding pension by employees who were temporary at the time of resignation [Prior to 1988, temporary employees were not eligible for pension]:-

Dated June, 2014


OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Court cases regarding pension by employees who were temporary at the time of resignation.
In a court case for grant of pension for employee who was at the time of resignation from service of Central Government, the court ordered for grant of pension-where as per rules, prior to 1988, temporary employees were not eligible for pension. Brief of the case is enclosed for perusal. To process this case, Ministry has desired following information:-.

(i) How many such are pending in courts under your region?
(ii) Is there any precedent case in under region where pension has been allowed to a temporary employee before 26.2.1988?
(iii) What would be the financial implication on allowing pension and to all other persons similarly placed?

You are therefore, requested to collect information from zones under your jurisdiction and furnish the same as to the directorate within one month.

(B.B. Makkar)
Chief Engineer (HQ)

Brief history of this case is as under:-

Shri P.P. Bhaskaran joined in this department on 20.11.1964 as Section Officer (later designated as Junior Engineer). He went to IAAI on deputation on 08.07.1975 and later on he got absorption in the regular service of IAAI. He was absorbed in IAAI in 01.09.1977. His service was not confirmed in CPWD (Central Government) as his turn for confirmation had not yet come. He superannuated from IAAI in December 2000. As per service record of the petitioner he was entitled for gratuity only and not pension.

Prior to 1988, temporary employees were not eligible for pension. Shri P.P.Bhaskaran filed O.A. No. 1008 of 2012 before the CAT, Madras Bench, to declare that he is entitled to receive pension for the period of service rendered in CPWD from 20.11.1964 to 30.08.1977. Along with the said application he also filed M.A. No.408 of 2011 to waive the waiting period of 6 month from the date of representation for filing OA. The CAT dismissed the OA as well as the MA by its order dated 22.8.2012 holding that the cause of action arose in the year 1977 and therefore it has no jurisdiction to entertain the application.

The Petitioner filed WP. No. 32214 of 2012 challenging the aforesaid order of the CAT before the Hon’ble High Court, Madras. The Hon’ble High Court by an order dated 18.11.2013 allowed the WP and directed CPWD to calculate the pension payab1e to him on pro-rata basis and disburse the arrears a period preceding three years from the date of the O.A. till date of payment.
