MACP on Hierarchy: DoPT’s clarification in view of Tribunal/Court Judgement through Railway Board

MACP on Hierarchy: DoPT’s clarification in view of Tribunal/Court Judgement through Railway Board

Railway Board has cited the DoP&T advice in the matter of grant of 3rd financial upgradation on promotion hierarchy under MACP Scheme on the reference made by AIRF:-

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

(Railway Board)
No PC-V/2011/M/3/AIRF
New Delhi, dated 13.11.2014
The General Secretary
AIRF
4, State Entry Road,
New Delhi-110055

Sir,
Sub:- 3rd financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

The undersigned is directed to refer to AlRF’s letter No.AlRF/MACP/2014 (302), dated 07.10.2014 and to state the matter has already been consulted with DoP&T, the nodal department of Govt. on MACPS, and they have advised as under:

As regards the Order dated 31.05.2011 in CA No. 1038/CH/2010 (Raj Pal vs UOI) of Hon’ble CAT, Chandigarh which was upheld by the High Court and Apex Court, it may be stated that the Apex Court has not considered the issue on merit. The said SLP was dismissed due to insufficient explanation to condone the delay in the filing of the SLP. As regards implementation of CAT Order dated 9.5.2012 in GA No. 141/2012, the administrative Department was advised for implementation for the petitioners only subject to outcome of Review Petition in view of Contempt case. It may also be stated that generally the judgments passed by Hon’ble Tribunals/Courts are applicable/implemented to the specific case, unless there is any direction for similar dispensation to be extended to similarly placed persons. Hence, the above Orders pronounced favoring the applicants by the Tribunal/Courts and implemented on attaining finality or due to contempt or due to any other reason may be taken as exceptions/aberration.

In the matter, DOP&T have advised to maintain status quo with regard to the provisions for grant of MACPS benefits. It may be clarified that financial upgradations under MACPS would continue to be granted in the successive grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay band and grade pay as given in Section 1, Part-a of the first Schedule of the Railway Services (Revised Pay), Rules, 2008 and not in the promotional hierarchy, where functional promotion are allowed in the same Grade Pay, MACP benefits would also be regulated in the Grade Pay only.

Since, DoP&T is the nodal department on MACP Scheme and financial upgradation under the Scheme are regulated as per instructions/clarifications issued by them from time to time. In view of the above, it is not feasible to deviate from the instructions issued by the nodal deptt. on the subject viz. DoP&T.

Yours faithfully,

Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension


Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension

Comparison of New Pension Scheme (National Pension Scheme) and Central Government Pension

The Central Government employees who have joined after 1/1/2004 and are put under National Pension Scheme(NPS)  have been demanding abolition of NPS and have been persuading the Central Government to make the government pension scheme applicable to them.

This only exhibits their ignorance of the fact that the New Pension Scheme is highly lucrative and make the government employees who joined after 1/1/2004 far richer than the government employees who enjoy government pension scheme.  By doing so they are in the process of ruining the great fortunes that lies in store under New Pension Scheme. Let me compare both the scheme:

Benefits under NPS

Let me take a case of Upper Division Clerk(UDC) who joins government service in 2014 at the age of 25  and renders 35 years  of service till attaining 60 years of age. He / She gets 3% annual increment every year and gets one promotion every 10 year under M.A.C.P.  Although he / she is likely to get 14 to 20% increase in D.A every year as per Consumer Price Index I just take 12%(assuming 6 + 6%) 2 times D.A in a year

* MACP / Promotion Years
(A) Therefore, the total pension wealth of a government servant who joined in 2014 and retiring under New Pension Scheme shall at the time of his retirement be Rs. 2,87,26,201/-

(B) 60% of the lump-sum pension wealth which he / she will be  getting on retirement:
Rs.1,72,35.720

(C) 40%   invested in an annuity scheme  which he / she can receive before 70 years:
Rs.1,14,90,481

(D) Earned Leave Encashment:  Rs. 215625 x 10 months        : Rs.   21,56,250

TOTAL of (A) (B) (C) and (D) will be            Rs. 3,08,82,451

Death Gratuity:

Although not entitled for retirement gratuity, but eligible for Death Gratuity  If died during the service

Monthly Pension:

At the assumed Interest at the rate of 8.7% per annum on  the other 40%  of pension wealth of Rs.1,14,90,481  invested in annuity shall fetch
monthly pension of  at least  :            Rs.83,306/ –

Not only this, before he / she attains the age of 70 he / she can withdraw the remaining  40% of his pension wealth of Rs. 1,14,90,481/- which if invested in Fixed Deposit of a nationalised bank can fetch interest and take care of not only of his wife and children but his descendants also for generations to come.
This is just a tip of the iceberg. If we consider the other  4 pay commission benefits that materialize on 1/1/2016, 1/1/2026, 1/1/2036 and 1/1/2046 which a NPS pensioner who joins as UDC shall be getting  before his retirement in 2049,his total pension wealth will be undoubtedly double the above amount which comes to more than Rs.5 crores. While a person who joins as U.D.C. gets this much, one will be rocked out of stupor to know what a Group A officer who renders 35 years of service may get – undoubtedly his total pensionwealth will be more than Rs.10 crores.

Benefits under Central Government Pension Scheme

Now let us see what will be the retirement benefits of the above person if he / she is put in government pension scheme:

1.Gratuity for 16.5 months :

Rs.2,15,625 x 16.5 months = Rs.35,57,812/- Restricted to  Rs.10,00,000

2. Earned Leave Encashment:

Rs. 215625 x 10 months :     Rs.21,56,250

3. Pension Commutation:

Rs.17195 x 40% = Rs.6878 x 12 x  8.194 years   Rs  6,76,300

Total Benefits under Central Government Pension Scheme:         Rs.38,32,550

4. GPF Balance:

As it is a general tendency of the government servants to withdraw from GPF frequently, there will be very little left at the time of retirement

5. Monthly pension

i) Rs.34390 / 2    =  Rs.17195 (basic pension being 50% of pay and grade pay Less 40% of basic pension towards commutation (Rs 6878) which will be restored after 15 years

Balance basic pension       is Rs. 10317

ii) DA @ 527% of basic pension of Rs.17195  = Rs. 90617 (subject to increase in DA every 6 months based on consumer price index)

Total pension                        is Rs.1,00,934 per month.

After the death of government servant  say after 67 years, spouse can take only 60% of the basic pension i.e.Rs.17195 x 60% = Rs.10317 plus D.A.at the prevailing rates. After spouse’s death children are unlikely to draw the pension as they would have already crossed the age limit.  Thus, unlike the dependents of NPS pensioners, there will be nothing left for financial security  of the dependents of the government pensioners .
Thus it is unwise on the part of government servants who have joined after 1/1/2004 to demand for abolition of NPS scheme and grant of government pension.
