All central government departments to verify employees service record annually

Verify Employees Service Annually: Centre tells all Departments

DoPT Secretary Sanjay Kothari
New Delhi: All central government departments have been asked to verify employees’ service record annually and inform them of any deficiencies thereof in order to check delay in processing their pension.

With the objective of eliminating delays in processing of cases of retiring government servants, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) asked the departments through Office Memorandum No.18019/7/2013-Estt.(L) dated September 3o to immediately undertake an exercise to ensure completion of the entries of service verification and conclude within a defined time-frame.

“Any gap in the verification of service may be intimated to the employee concerned, and simultaneously appropriate action for ensuring verification of missing spells may be taken by the Head of Office,” it said in a directive to all ministries.

The government servant concerned may also be informed of deficiencies and gaps as regards missing entries relating to verification of service and the period thereof, the order said.

In order to preclude and cut down on delays in payment of retiral benefits to government servants retiring of superannuation, the ministries may consider annual service verification and intimation to every officer regarding service verification status so that any lapse is timely ascertained and corrective action taken.

“The exercise of annual verification be monitored by every ministry, department or cadre controlling authority on a quarterly basis,” it said.

There are about 50 lakh central government employees.

All ministries are requested to issue suitable instructions to all Heads of Offices, and Pay and Accounts Offices for strict compliance of the instructions so as to preclude any delays in disbursement of retiral benefits of government servants, the directive said.

Railway Employees likely to get 78 day Bonus

Railwaymen likely to get 78 days bonus

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu
New Delhi: Railway employees are likely to be given 78-day wages as productivity-linked bonus (PLB) for the fiscal 2014-15, the same as in the last three years, despite the financial crunch.

The proposal to give 78-day bonus to railwaymen is likely to come up tomorrow at the Cabinet meeting, sources said.

If the Cabinet decides tomorrow for a 78-day bonus then about 12 lakh railway employees will get about Rs 8897 as bonus this month, they said.

There will be about 11 lakh railway employees who will get the benefit of PLB and it is estimated to cost more than Rs 800 crores to the public transporter.

In 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 also, 78-day wages were given as PLB to railway employees.
Productivity-linked bonus is paid to railway employees each year before the Dussehra festival.

However, General Secreatry of National Railway Federation of Indian Railwaymen M Raghavaiah said “We are demanding to increase the ceiling of Rs 3,500 per month as Labour Ministry has also advocated for the hike in bonus and we have written to Prime Minister for this.

“But since the election code of conduct is in force, the government has to have special permission from the Election Commission to raise the amount.
