OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure : clarifications : regarding.

Following the notification of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2015, this Department has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. The matter has been considered in this Department and the points of doubts are clarified as under:

1. Point of doubt: As per the provisions of FR22 (l) (a) (1), the Government servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex-cadre post or ad hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/ appointment or from the date of next increment.

Some of the employees, promoted between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 25th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous. Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22 at this stage.

Clarification: Under the changed circumstances after notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016, the employee may be allowed to exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR22(l)(a)(1), Such revised option shall be exercised within one month of issue of this 0M. Option so revised, shall be final.

2. Point of doubt: Whether employees appointed/promoted/ during granted financial up-gradation 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016,.

Clarification: Since the provisions of CCS  (RP)Rules, 2016 are effective  from 01.01.2016, no increment shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation : Confederation

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation :  Confederation
Ex Service men Pay Fixation : Confederation writes to Hon'ble Minister of State, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension

Respected Sir,
Sub : Ex Service men pay fixation : intervention requested.

1. It is submitted that pay fixation of re employed Ex Service men who held rank below commissioned officer/Group A at the time of their retirement is not carried out in many departments (Eg; Postal department) as per Government orders issued from time due to misinterpretation/wrong classification by the administrative authorities. The re employed Ex Servicemen are being deprived of their due by the controlling authorities.

2. Department of Personnel & Training under Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension is the nodal authority in the subject matter. Presently CCS (Fixation of Pay of re employed Pensioners) orders 1986, amended from time to time, which act as the basic guideline, is required to be amended to bring clarity and parity for whole class of Ex servicemen. The pay of the re employed Ex Commissioned officers/Group 'A' is fixed at a higher stage due to their past service benefit but in the case of re employed Ex Servicemen who held rank below commissioned officers, their pay is fixed at minimum of pay scale of re employed post which is denial of natural justice and violation of fundamental rights, particularly right to equality, enshrined in our constitution, as discrimination arises out of such partial provisions. The provision contained in pay fixation basically are welfare measure to support the class of Ex Servicemen as a whole. However, this discrimination in pay fixation had added to their woes.

3. Detailed statement of case for regularization/streamlining of pay fixation of re employed Ex Servicemen are enclosed herewith for your kind consideration and issue of necessary guidelines in favour of veteran Warries of our country who sacrificed their vital years for India and still engaged themselves in nation building.

STATEMENT OF CASE FOR REGULARISATION OF PAY FIXATION OF RE EMPLOYED EX SERVICEMEN (PERSONNEL BELOW OFFICER RANK) IN CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS/ MINISTRIES
INTRODUCTION

Government of India provides reemployment opportunities to Ex Servicemen Officers/Other Ranks of Indian Armed Forces in various Departments/Ministries, Public Sector Organizations & Autonomous Bodies as a rehabilitation measure due to their compulsory retirement at early age to keep the forces young. According to CCS (Fixation of Pay of reemployed Pensioners) Orders 1986 amended from time to time by DOP&T the Reemployed Officers are allowed to draw a higher stage of initial pay in consideration with their pre retirement pay on reemployment in such Government organizations. In case of other ranks/PBOR (Jawans/NCOs/JCOs) the Government departments and Ministries have allowed to draw only minimum/entry pay of re employed post as applicable to fresh recruit. Public Sector organizations viz., Nationalised Banks, LIC, NIC and other PSUs have allowed to draw the higher stage of initial pay (at the stage of pre retirement pay) to reemployed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs/NCOs) as mentioned above.

DETAILED JUSTIFICATION OF THE CASE

Department of Posts and some other departments has not agreed to allow the higher initial pay on re employment in consideration with pre retirement pay to re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer rank of the Armed Forces. Most of the Ex servicemen belong to PBOR category retired (discharged) from service at the age of 35 : 40 years to keep the forces young. To ensure the minimum survival support earning, Government of India introduced a higher stage of pay in several manners to the reemployed ex servicemen from time to time. According to Dept of P&T OM No 3/1/86 Estt (P II) dated 31 July 1986 the earlier orders relating to fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners was scattered in a number of OM issued by Ministry of finance from time to time. Dept. of P&T consolidated all these orders and issued fresh guidelines in a single order viz., CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. The pay fixation procedure mentioned in such earlier

OMs (Prior to 1986) issued by Ministry of Finance as under :

1) According to Ministry of Finance, Dept of Expenditure OM No 8(34) Estt III/57 dated 25 Nov 1958 pay of the re employed pensioners will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of the re employed post. In cases where it is felt that fixation of pay of re employed officers at the minimum of pay scale will cause undue hardship the pay may be fixed at a higher stage by allowing one increment for each year of service the officer has rendered before retirement in a post not lower than that he reemployed. In other words, if the amount of pay plus pension is less than the last pay drawn before retirement from previous service, it will be treated as undue hardship.

2) In case of reemployed pensioner who retired before attaining the age of 55 years, Rs 125/ was ignored from the pension for the purpose of pay fixation vide Ministry of finance OM No F.4(3)E III/82 dated 13 December 1978.

3) According to Ministry of Finance OM No F.4(3) E.III/82 dated 13 Dec 1983 the entire pension of the reemployed pensioners who held below Group A post/ Commissioned officer rank and retired before attaining the age of 55 years will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. In this regard Para 4(d) (i) of CCS (Fixation of pay or reemployed pensioners) order 1986, amended from time to time may be referred.
Hence in the cases where pay plus Non Ignorable Portion of Pension is less than last pay drawn (LPD) before retirement, it will be treated as undue hardship. In case of Ex : Personnel below Commissioned officer /Group 'A' Officer Rank, the non ignorable part of pension is zero. So it may be described such a manner that, if the pay of re employed post is less than last pay drawn in such cases advance increments will be granted as instructions given in Ministry of Finance OM dated 25 November 1958. Hence the pay of re employed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs) will be fixed at higher stage.

4) Now the provisions of CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986, and its application is as under: :

(i) In case of Reemployed officers who held Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement: : According to Para 4(d)(ii) such re employed officer who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years, first Rs 4000/ of his pension only will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. According to Para 4(b) (ii) Pay of such re employed officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement as a part of pension is only ignored for the purpose of pay fixation and remaining part of pension will be deducted from pay so fixed at the last pay drawn. As a result, pay of such officer is fixed at much higher than the minimum pay of re employed post. Illustration as mentioned below:

Colonel A Retired at the age of 54 Years and re employed as Section Officer [Gp A Gazetted post in the pay scale of (Rs 15600 (BP) + Rs 5400 (Grade Pay)] His other details are as under :

Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 15600 + Rs 5400 = Rs 21000
Last pay drawn in previous service = Rs 54000 (BP) + Rs 8700 (GP) + Rs 6000 (MSP)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 68700/
Pensioned sanctioned = Rs 34350/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: :
Step : I : Determination of last pay drawn = Rs 68700
Step : II : Determination of non ignorable = Rs 34350 : Rs 4000 = Rs 30350 part of his pension
Step : III : Deduction of non ignorable = Rs 68700 : Rs 30350 = Rs 38350 Part of pension from

Last Pay Drawn
Step : IV : Fixation of Initial pay = Rs 38350
(In addition to pay so fixed above, he shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. As explained in para 4(C) of CCS (RP) rules, 2008 vide OM 3/19/2009 dated 5th April 2010.)

From above it is notable that the minimum pay of the re employed post is Rs 21,000/ and the pay fixed at Rs 38350/ hence the pay has been fixed at the higher stage due to consideration of his pre retirement pay. It is justified as the pay of an experienced person can never be equal to a fresh recruit, but the same justification should be considered for reemployed Ex Non Commissioned officer cadre (JCOs/Jawans) also.

In case of Reemployed Ex servicemen who held rank below Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement and retired before attaining the age of 55 years: : According to Para 4(d) (i) such re employed ex servicemen who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years his entire pension will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation.

According to Para 4(b) (i) Pay of such re employed ex servicemen will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of reemployed post. Pre retirement pay will not be considered for his pay fixation. Treatment of undue hardship caused due to fixation of minimum pay is neglected here.

Illustration as mentioned below: :
Sepoy ABC (MACP I) Retired at the age of 36 Years and reemployed as Social Security Assistant in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230

His other details are as under: :
Last pay drawn = Rs 9550 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 14250/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 7125/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: 

Step I Determination of Initial pay of re employed post = Rs 8230
Step II Fixation of Initial pay on re employment = Rs 8230

From above it is notable that the re employed ex servicemen is allowed to draw only minimum pay of reemployed post which is Rs 8200/ much less than his last pay drawn Rs14250/ before retirement, hence the undue hardship arises as his pre retirement pay has been neglected. The gap will widen in case we take example of Nb Subedar of Army or a Sergeant of Air force who gets X pay additionally.

From the illustration (i) and (ii) it is revealed that the CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 is not a consolidation of provisions of OM issued by Ministry of finance rather it is an order issued by Government of India which intended to give benefit to Ex Commissioned officers and deprive the Ex servicemen (PBOR). This Order was formulated to serve the interests of Ex Group 'A' Officers/Commissioned Officer category only and discriminated against the PBOR/Other Ranks in terms of Right to equality enshrined in our Constitution of India. The service conditions were equally harsher to whole class of ex servicemen including all ranks of Armed Forces; in fact more harsh if service privileges and promotions are to be considered separately.

5. In addition to above, according to Para 2 of DOPT OM No 3/13/2008/Estt/Pay II dated 11 Nov 2008 it is clear that the pay of re employed ex servicemen will be fixed according to rule 7 of CCS RP Rules 2008 with adherence to CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Rules 1986 amended from time to time. The term minimum pay refers here the pay last drawn by the reemployed ex servicemen before retirement (substantive pay) and the pay should be fixed in the pay structure of re employed post i.e. the grade pay of re employed post only admissible in such case. Total pay should be equal to the last pay drawn by the pensioner. In this regard your attention is also invited to para 3(v) of DOPT OM No 3/19/2009 Estt (Pay II) dated 05 April 2010 where it is clearly instructed that the pay of re employed personnel/officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn. In this regard Verdict of Honourable Supreme Court dt 08.11.1996 in the case of Director General of India Posts Vs B Ravindran may be referred.

6. Pay of Re Employed Officers is fixed at higher stage due to formula applied as prescribed in the CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. Whereas the interest of personnel below officer rank was totally neglected and their pay is fixed at the minimum of pay scale only which is contrary to natural injustice and violation of Right to equality enshrined in the Constitution of India as discrimination arises.

7. Public Sector Banks, LIC, NIC and PSUs are still allowed the higher stage of initial pay to Ex PBOR with reference to the Government orders (DOP&T OM dated 05.04.2010). Circular of Indian Banks Association in this regard may be referred to. Due to misinterpretation/ambiguous language of Government orders issued on the subject matter, Central Government departments does not agree to re fix the pay of re employed ex servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned in para 4 above. The re employed Ex serviceman belonging to PBOR category, are allowed to get their pay fixed only at the minimum/entry pay of re employed post which is illogical and unlawful decision in terms of violation of constitutional provisions of fundamental rights. As a result, a large number of ex servicemen are suffering from financial hardship besides moral depression.

8. Quoting the same authority /Govt. orders issued by DOP&T the PSU organizations and Nationalised Banks (Govt. Undertakings) have facilitated the pay fixation to the ex servicemen (PBOR) to fix the pay at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement but Central Government departments still not agreed to provide the entitlements to the re employed ex soldiers due to ambiguous provisions. They cite different reasons that PSUs are following different pay system etc. forgetting that PSUs derive the authority from the same Central government, So, how can there be two sets of rules for same category by same employer (Central Government).

REMEDIAL ACTION REQUIRED TO BE TAKEN

9. In view of the above it is requested that, your good office should weed out the actual disparity arising out of incomplete and discriminatory orders issued by the DOP&T vide CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 (amended from time to time) and issue necessary amendment/fresh order in favour of the Ex Servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned below: :
For: : Para 4(b)(i)

Where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008.

It should be read as under (DRAFT PROPOSAL) : Para 4(b)(i) where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re employed post applicable in the case of direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. In cases of reemployed ex servicemen where pension is fully ignored and pay fixed at minimum/entry pay of reemployed post which is less than his pay last drawn in the Armed forces will be treated as undue hardship and his pay required to be fixed at a higher stage by allowing advance increments until his pay reaches at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement to prevent undue hardship. In addition, he will be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit.

Illustration: Sergeant/Havildar (any non commissioned rank) ABC Retired before the age of 55 Years and reemployed in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP)
Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230
Last pay drawn by him = Rs 12000 (BP) + Rs 2800 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay) + GCB 240 + X pay 1400
Total pay last drawn = Rs 18740/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 9370/

Pay fixation on his reemployment :
Step : I Determination of minimum pay = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = 8230 (minimum pay of reemployed post)
Step : II Fixation of total pay = Rs 18740/ (Last pay drawn) by allowing advance increment).
Step : III Manner of Re fixation of pay = Rs 16840 (Band Pay) + 2400 (Grade Pay of re employed post)
(This order should be applicable to all re employed ex servicemen irrespective of their date of retirement and date of re employment)

CONCLUSION

10. In the light of the above, it is requested that the fresh orders/amendments be issued free from any scope of misinterpretation/ ambiguity, clearly mentioning the feasibility of fixation of pay of the re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer ranks, at the same stage as the last pay drawn before retirement, ignoring entire portion of pension since the pension is miniscule and not even enough to live on rent in a city. In addition, they shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to them and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. Thousands of re employed soldiers suffering from acute financial hardship due to very low earning even after re employed. They would get relief with the right approach and initiative if taken at your end at the earliest. This will also save the Government's expenditure and precious time of officers on litigations that are either pending or may be initiated in various courts.

7th Pay Commission: Achhe Din for government employees, Centre likely to hike Dearness Allowance by 2 per cent before Dussehra

7th Pay Commission: Achhe Din for government employees, Centre likely to hike Dearness Allowance by 2 per cent before Dussehra

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will move the proposal of hike in DA on the basis of accepted formula for calculation under the 7th Pay Commission recommendation.

In a good news for 10 million central government employees, Narendra Modi government is likely to hike dearness allowance (DA) by 2 per cent ahead of the Dusshera festival. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will move the proposal of hike in DA on the basis of accepted formula for calculation under the 7th Pay Commission recommendation, while the Union Cabinet is expected to clear the proposal of hike in DA in the next meeting. The 7th Pay Commission recommended the merging of 125 percent dearness allowance into the basic pay.

The Central government is likely to hike dearness allowance (DA) by 2 per cent, based on the data of the Consumer Price Index- Industrial Workers ( CPI-IW). Average rate of Consumer Price Index-Industrial Labour from July 2015 to June, 2016 was 2.90 per cent. Thus, the Centre will increase dearness allowance by two as per accepted formula for calculation, a Finance Ministry official working on the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations was quoted as saying by the Sen Times.

Unlike the 6th Pay commission, which had recommended the basic pay based on the Consumer Price Index 115.76 in January 2006, 7th Pay commission recommended new pay matrix, based on the Consumer Price Index 261.42. The government will use the data of CPI-IW from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016. The CPI (IW) of the months July, August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May and June were 263, 264, 266, 269, 270, 269, 269, 267, 268, 271, 275 and 277 respectively.

The Centre revised DA twice in a year on the basis of one year average of retail inflation for industrial workers as per the accepted formula. Last times, the government had increased DA by 6 percentage points from 119 to 125. The new rate of DA will be implemented from July 1, 2016. The cabinet approved the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations for central government employees on July 29, which will impact some 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners.

The 7th Pay Commission notification confirmed that central government employees will get 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay at junior levels, which is the lowest in 70 years. The Cabinet also approved the increase in minimum pay Rs 18,000 from existing Rs 7,000. The 7th pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances. However no final decision has been taken on the allowances by the government. The allowances had been a major bone of contention amongst majority of the central government employees.

DPE issues guidelines to expedite the process for clousure of CPSEs


DPE issues guidelines to expedite the process for clousure of CPSEs.

Department of Public Enterprises (DPE), Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprise has recently issued guidelines to expedite the process for closure of CPSEs so that all administrative Ministries would follow uniform procedure for closure of the CPSEs. Earlier, DPE had issued guidelines for “streamlining the mechanism for revival and restructuring of sick/ incipient sick and weak Central Public Sector Enterprises: General principles and mechanism of restricting”. As per these guidelines, the CPSEs were to be categorized into strategic and non-strategic and revival/restructuring strategy was prescribed. However, there are certain CPSEs in non-strategic sector which have no scope for revival and are to be closed in a time bound manner. Since there are employees working in these CPSEs, Government decided that closure should not cause hardship to them and has now laid down a uniform policy to give workers VRS at 2007 notional pay scale irrespective of the pay scale in which they are working.

The guidelines also prescribe the modalities for disposal of movable assets and immovable assets. The guidelines prescribe that leasehold land would be dealt as per the terms of the lease and freehold land would be offered in following order of priority:-

(i) Central Government Departments.

(ii) Central Government bodies/CPSEs.

(iii) State Government Departments.

(iv) State Government bodies/State PSEs/State authorities.

In case the above categories are not interested in taking the land for six months, then the land would be auctioned through MSTC to any entity so that it can be put to productive use.

Cabinet gives ex post facto approval to Varistha Pension Bima Yojana, 2003 and Varistha Pension Bima Yojana, 2014

Cabinet gives ex post facto approval to Varistha Pension Bima Yojana, 2003 and Varistha Pension Bima Yojana, 2014

The Union Cabinet under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its ex post facto approval for the Varishtha Pension Bima Yojana (VPBY) 2003 launched on 14th July, 2003 and Varistha Pension Bima Yojana (VPBY) 2014 launched on 14th August, 2014.

Dear Comrades,

Reg: Continuation of Medical Expenses Reimbursement Insurance Scheme for employees/officers who have retired after 1.10.2015.

In terms of the 10th Bipartite Settlement and Joint Note on Officers Wage Revision, Banks have introduced the Medical Expenses Reimbursement Insurance Scheme and all employees and officers have been covered by the Scheme from 1.10.2015. Since the Policy commenced from 1st October, 2015, it will end on 30th September, 2016. Our Settlement / Scheme provides that employees/officers who retired during this period will continue to be covered by the policy upto 30.9.2016 and can continue in the Scheme thereafter on payment of the requisite premium.

However, the Insurance Policy for the retirees commenced from 1.11.2015 and comes to an end on 31.10.2015.In order to ensure coverage of the Policy for this interim period of one month ( 1.10.2016 to 31.10.2016), we took up the matter with IBA.

It is informed that United India Insurance Company has clarified to all the Banks that such retirees can continue in the Scheme by remitting one month pro rata premium amount to cover upto 31.10.2016 and thereafter pay annual premium for future.

Alternatively instead of remitting one month pro.rata premium now and 12 months premium again thereafter, the retirees can also remit 13 months premium now and be covered upto 31.10.2017.

Units are requested to follow up the matter with their respective managements and ensure that retirees are covered by the policy as above.
With greetings,
Yours comradely,

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 65 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation BPMS submitted that Ministry of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways have issued a notification vide Notice No. NH 11065/12/2003 P&M, dated 15.09.2004 to Secretary, PWD of all States/Union Territories and National Highways Authority of India clarifying that the provisions of Indian Tolls (Army and Air Force) Act, 1901 is applicable to all States and National Highways whereby Army personnel are exempted from paying tolls on roads and highways in the States/Union Territories for their private vehicles irrespective of whether they are on duty or not.

This Federation has firm belief that the defence civilians are also integral part of Defence Forces and they perform their duties in almost similar conditions of uniform personnel without any extra financial benefits. Hence, they (Defence civilians) also deserve to be granted the benefits to some extent on par with uniform personnel.

In this regard, D(Mov) offered its comments (copy enclosed for ready reference) that the subject matter was not being dealt with by D(Mov).

Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that Defence Civilians may also be exempted from paying tolls on roads and highways in the States/Union Territories for their private vehicles.

Thanking you.

Subject: Promotion to the post of Supervisor (NT) from Leading Fireman: Norms Relaxation in OFB.

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the Agenda Point No. 63 raised by this federation BPMS in the Steering Committee meeting for the 90th Departmental Council (JCM) (MoD) held on 27.09.2013 {Refer MoD F.No. 5(2)/2013/D(JCM), Dated 24.09.2013}. This federation submitted that Hon’ble CAT/Principal Bench, New Delhi in OA No. 1396 of 2008 Shri M.R.Meena Vs Union of India has ordered that parity should be maintained between Leading Hand Fire with other feeder grades (viz. LDC, Photographer, Telephone Operator II & Subedar Durwan) for the promotion to the post of Supervisor (Non Technical).
According to existing SRO 30, dated 14.07.2010, Ministry of Defence, Ordnance Factories, Supervisor (Non-Technical) and Telephone Operator Grade II Group C Posts Recruitment Rules, 2010, 50% vacant posts of Supervisor (Non-Tech) will be filled up by promotion from Photographer, Telephone Operator Grade-II, Subedar Durwan and Leading Hand Fire. This fifty per cent post of Supervisor (NT) may be filled up by 64% from the Leading Hand Fires in the Pay Band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus Grade Pay of Rs. 2000/- with five years of regular service in the grade and possessing any of the following qualification:
(a) having passed the Senior Fire Supervisory Course from Defence Institute of Fire Research, Ministry of Defence, New Delhi; or
(b) having passed the Sub Officer's Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute; or
(c) having passed Station Officer's Course or Assistant Divisional Officer's or Divisional Officer's Course from National Fire Service College, Nagpur or any other recognized institute;
or
(d) Degree in Fire Engineering from Nagpur University or any other recognized institute; or
(e) having passed Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers United Kingdom or Graduateship from Institute of Fire Engineers India
It is to be noted that this fifty per cent post will be be filled up by 17% from amongst Telephone Operators in the Pay Band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service; 12% from Subedar Durwan in the Pay band of Rs. (4400 to 7440) plus GP Rs. 1600/- with 14 years regular service in the grade; 7% from Photographer in the Pay band I Rs. (5200 to 20200) plus GP Rs. 1900/- with 08 years regular service. From above it is seen that Leading Hand Fire should have more qualification in comparison to the other feeder categories for Supervisor (NT) whereas all the incumbents have to perform the same responsibility with the same Grade Pay, i.e. Rs. 2400/- (Pre Revised Rs. 4000 to 6000).

It is to be kept in the mind that Vide Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) Notification G.S.R. 622(E), dated 29.08.2008 CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 has been introduced and the First Schedule Part-B, Section II states that Station Officer’s pay scale Rs. (4000 to 6000) (Fire Fighting Staff) has been upgraded to Rs. (4500 to 7000) and revised to GP Rs. 2800/-, whereas Supervisor (NT) is being granted the GP Rs. 2400/- on promotion from the post of Leading Hand Fire. Thus, the provisions of SRO 30 have not been framed considering the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 as the qualification of only one of the feeder posts Leading Hand Fire has been enhanced but the Grade Pay of promotional post Supervisor (NT) for Fire Fighting Staff has not been enhanced to Rs. 2800/-

In this regards, comments offered by D(Estt./NG) is enclosed for your ready reference. Therefore, your attention is invited to Rule 6 of SRO 30 which empowers the Central Government to relax the provisions of these rules to any class or category of persons and you are requested to take appropriate action so that existing Leading Hand Fire incumbents who are not fulfilling the requisite qualification may also be promoted to the post of Supervisor (NT) by granting relaxation in qualification as mentioned here in above.

Thanking you.

7th Pay Commission : Allowances Report to be Delayed by a Week As FM too busy with political agenda


7th Pay Commission : Allowances Report to be Delayed by a Week As FM too busy with political agenda

The submission of report on allowances is likely to be delayed by a week, primarily because of the Uri terror attack on an army base in Jammu and Kashmir and partly because of the BJP national executive meet held in the Kerala city of Kozhikode.

Sources said, The report of special committee on allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is to be delayed because of Uri attack and BJP national executive meet held in Kozhikode, Kerala.

An official in Anonymous said, The report of special committee on allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is to be delayed because of Uri attack and BJP national executive meet held in Kozhikode, Kerala. The committee on allowances recommended by the 7th Pay Commission could not submit its report as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was too busy due to political developments post attack on Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri and BJP’s national executive meet.

The report of the committee on allowances, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was to submit last week but the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was too busy with political agenda for the both incidents that so fatter allowances was not prioritised, sources in Finance Ministry quoted.

The committee on allowances was ready to submit its report even two months in advance. The committee is likely to call on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in this week, if the political situation returns to normal, sources added.

The 7th pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances. The government while issuing the notification for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission had announced to set up a special committee to examine the recommendations on allowances. The Committee was given four months to submit its report on allowances. The committee met employees unions leaders on August 4 and September 1 respectively before preparing its report. However the submission of the report is likely to be delayed by a week now.

The pay commission resolution issued on July 25 said, till a final decision on allowances is taken based on the recommendations of this Committee, all allowances will continue to be paid at existing rates in existing pay structure, as if the pay had not been revised with effect from January 1, 2016. The allowances had been a major bone of contention amongst majority of the central government employees.

The government issued the notification for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations in July. The 7th Pay Commission notification confirmed that central government employees will get 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay at junior levels, which is the lowest in 70 years. The Cabinet also approved the increase in minimum pay Rs 18,000 from existing Rs 7,000.

DA & Linking Factor What's expected? DA Announcement and linking factor explored.


DA & Linking Factor  What's expected?  DA Announcement and linking factor explored.

As you all know that DA is calculated based on AICPIN.

AICPIN is calculated based on the inflation and the cost of living in various cities. So, what's going to happen in 7th Pay Commission, let's read.

In Pay Commission III, the base year was used as (1960 =100).
In 4th Pay Commission, the DA was decided to pay twice a year and also for calculating the DA value the percentage increase in the 12 monthly average of All India Consumer Price Index (base 1960). Also the base year was (1982=100) as the base year.

In 5th Pay Commission, the DA was decided based on (1982=100) as the base year.
In 6th Pay Commission, the DA was decided based on (2001=100) as the base year.
In 7th Pay Commission, should we expect to have the base year as (2011=100)?

When the DA calculation change happened from base year 1982 to base year as 2001, there were a steep increase in the DA percentage, this is because the cost of living has increased multifold and also various cities and items was also included while calculating the real DA.

So, what's been recommend in the 7th CPC Report
Keeping in mind that the present formulation of DA has worked well over the years, and there are no demands for its alteration, the Commission recommends continuance of the existing formula and methodology for calculating the Dearness Allowance and also check out the gazette notification changes where the linking factor has been included as on AICPIN value as 2016.

IV. Dearness Allowance
Sl.No.Recommendation of the Seventh Central Pay CommissionDecision of the Chief Justice of India
1.Existing formula and methodology for calculating Dearness Allowance to continue (Para 8.17.37 of the Report) Accepted. The reference base for calculation of Dearness Allowance after coming into force of the revised Pay Structure shall undergo change accordingly and will be linked to the average index as on 01.01.2016

Though in (2001=100) the linking factor was 4.63, this lead to the calculation of DA with the average index as 115.76 as per 2005. For example, (2005 , 12 Month Average Index  536, so the linking factor as per record was 4.63).

All India and Centre-wise Linking factors between New Series of Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001 = 100 and the previous series on base 1982=100 (General Index).

Table No. 9.01

Note: Figures on previous base 1982 = 100 can be obtained by multiplying the Index Number on current base 2001 = 100 by the linking factor and rounding off the result to the nearest whole number.
As you all now understand that the linking factor play a major role in getting the DA value, but the linking factor for year 2016 .

I was not able to find this data in Labour Bureau . We assume that if the linking factor of 2016 used, then we expect to get a higher DA percentage (assumption). This means it would be a real DA value as it would include various cities and the current inflation and CPI.

We hope that when the results are out they would be using the linking factor of 2016 as the gazette notification has this mentioned. Normally the DA announcement is release in September 1st week or 2nd week and hope this is announced shortly.

Sir,
Sub: Extending CGHS facilities to Postal Pensioners reg.

As you are aware, now the postal pensioners are not extended the facilities under CGHS. We have been taking up the case with the Government and also with the Department of Posts, but till date no favourable orders have been issued. In Kerala Postal Circle CGHS facility is extended to all postal pensioners also as per the judgment delivered by the Hon'ble High Court of Kerala, Ernakulam.

We have submitted memorandum to chairman 7th CPC also appealing to Consider out request judiciously and favourably. Fortunately, the 7th CPC has given the following favourable recommendations in its reports submitted to Government on 19.11.2015.

Good News For Railwaymen: Centre May Announce 78 Day Wages As Bonus


Good News For Railwaymen: Centre May Announce 78 Day Wages As Bonus

Ahead of the festive season, railway employees are likely to get 78 day wages as bonus this year, the same as in the last four years despite the financial crunch.

We have demanded 78 day wages as productivity linked bonus (PLB) for railway employee this year and expecting the government to declare the same next week,"National Federation of Indian Railwaymen General Secretary M Raghavaiah told Press Trust of India.

Productivity linked bonus is paid to about 12 lakh railway employees each year before the Dussehra festival.
Mr Raghavaiah said the 78 day wage is expected to be around Rs. 18,000 per employee. In 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 also, 78 day wages were also given as PLB to railway employees.
Facing a shortfall of about Rs. 10,000 crore in the earnings due to slowdown in loadings and drop of passengers in short train journey, the railways will get the cabinet approval for the 78 day bonus proposal next week.

The bonus decision is expected to cost the railways about Rs. 2000 crore.

All-India Railwaymen’s Federation General Secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra said the bonus is expected to motivate the employees to improve the financial position of the public transporter.

Mr Mishra said, "Since the PLB ceiling has been revised to Rs. 7000 from Rs. 3500, we expect each employee will get double the amount as against the last year’s bonus."

Last year, the minimum bonus paid was Rs. 8,975 per employee.

PLB covers all non gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) spread over the entire country.

DA from July 2016 as an interim Measure


The Sources Close to the Ministry of finance informed that there is proposal to Pay 1% DA from July as an interim Measure.It is said that the Central Government has not yet decided about the DA rates in Revised Pay scale.

Sources close to Finance Ministry told that the initial installment of DA to central government employees on the revised pay structure w.e.f 1.7.2016 is under consideration. Mean time there is a proposal to pay the DA from July 2016 at the rate of 1% to all CG Staffs. It will be a shocking news for CG Staff, since they are already expecting 2 to 3% DA from July 2016.

PRU is asked to submit Financial Implication of 1% DA

But the fact is the Department of Expenditure has directed the PRU of the Finance Ministry to furnish the details of additional Financial Implications for 1% increase of DA with effect from 1.7.2016 on the revised Pay Structure.

Further the Pay Research Unit has been requested to furnish financial implications for the Period of July 2016 to February 2017 on account of granting 1% DA from July 2016 to all central government employees including Armed Forces and UT Employees.

According to the above information, it is believed that announcement of 1% DA for July installment may be made any time soon.

Government Employees: Understanding Minimum Wages and Bonus

Government Employees: Understanding Minimum Wages and Bonus

Understanding-Minimum-Wages-Bonus


Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Labour & Employment

A minimum wage is the lowest remuneration that employers may legally pay to workers or it is the price floor below which workers may not sell their labour.

The concept of minimum wages first evolved with reference to remuneration of workers in those industries where the level of wages was substantially low as compared to the wages for similar types of labour in other industries. As far back as 1928, the International Labour Conference of International Labour Organization, at Geneva, adopted a draft convention on minimum wages requiring the member countries to create and maintain a machinery whereby minimum rates of wages can be fixed for workers employed in industries in which no arrangements exist for the effective regulation of wages and where wages are exceptionally low. Also, at the Preparatory Asian Regional Labour Conference of International Labour Organisation held at New Delhi in 1947 and then at the 3rd session of the Asian Regional Labour Conference, it was approved that every effort should be made to improve wage standards in industries and occupations in Asian Countries, where they are still low. Thus, the need of a legislation for fixation of minimum wages in India received an impetus after World War II, on account of the necessity of protecting the interest of demobilized personnel seeking employment in industries.

The justification for statutory fixation of minimum wage is obvious. Such provisions which exist in more advanced countries are even necessary in India, where workers organizations are yet poorly developed and the workers bargaining power is consequently poor.

To provide for machinery for fixing and revision of minimum wages a draft Bill was prepared and discussed at the 7th session of the Indian Labour Conference in November, 1945. Thereupon the Minimum Wages Bill was introduced in the Central Legislative Assembly. The Minimum Wages Bill having been passed by the Legislature received the assent on 15th March, 1948. It came on the Statute Book as the Minimum Wages Act, 1948.

The Act provides for fixation by the appropriate Governments of minimum wages for employments covered by Schedule to the Act. The Central Government is the appropriate Government in respect of 45 scheduled employments in the Central Sphere. The minimum wages fixed for Central sphere are applicable to the scheduled employments in the establishments under the authority of Central Government, railway administrations, mines, oil-fields, major ports or any corporation established by a Central Act. Employments other than the scheduled employment for Central Sphere come under the purview of the State Government and accordingly State Government wages are applicable in such employments. The minimum wages for Central Sphere are revised from time to time based on the increase in Consumer Price Index effective from April and October.

According to Section 3(1)(b) of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948, the appropriate government shall review at such intervals, as it may think fit, such intervals not exceeding five years, the minimum rates of wages so fixed and revise the minimum rates if necessary.

The norms recommended by the Indian Labour Conference, in 1957, fox fixing the minimum wages are: (a) consumption units for one wage earner; (b) minimum food requirements of 2700 calories per average Indian adult; (c) clothing requirements of 72 yards per annum per family; (d) rent corresponding to the minimum area provided for under Government's Industrial Housing Scheme; and (e) fuel, lighting and other miscellaneous items of expenditure to constitute 20% of the total minimum wage.

In 1991, the Hon'ble Supreme Court delivered a historic judgement and directed that children's education, medical requirement, minimum recreation including festivals/ceremonies, provision for old age, marriage etc. should further constitute 25% of the minimum wage and be used as a guide in fixation of minimum wage.

The Act envisages appointment of an Advisory Board, by the appropriate Government, for the purpose of advising the appropriate Government in the matter of fixing and revising minimum rates of wages.

The Central Government revises the wages in the scheduled employments from time to time in accordance with the provisions of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948. Draft Notifications for all the Scheduled Employments in the Central Sphere were issued on 1st September, 2016 simultaneously, in fact for the first time. The basic rate of minimum wages for an unskilled worker in the scheduled employment other than agriculture has been proposed at Rs.350 in Area 'C' from the current minimum wage (basic wage + variable dearness allowance) of Rs.246 resulting in an increase of about 42%. The basic rate of minimum wages for an unskilled worker in the scheduled employment 'agriculture' has been proposed at Rs.300 in Area 'C' from the current minimum wage (basic wage + variable dearness allowance) of Rs.211 resulting in an increase of about 42%.

The proposed revision in the rates of basic minimum wages would indeed provide much needed solace to the labour fraternity.

Bonus

Bonus payment is an extra payment given for doing one's job well also known as performance related pay or pay for performance.

The practice of paying bonus in India appears to have originated during First World War when certain textile mills granted 10% of wages as war bonus to their workers in 1917. In certain cases of industrial disputes demand for payment of bonus was also included. In 1950, the Full Bench of the Labour Appellate Tribunal evolved a formula for determination of bonus. A plea was made to raise that formula in 1959. At the second and third meetings of the eighteenth Session of Standing Labour Committee (G.O.I) held in New Delhi in March/ April 1960, it was agreed that a Commission be appointed to go into the question of bonus and evolve suitable norms. A Tripartite Commission was set up by the Government of India to consider in a comprehensive manner, the question of payment of bonus based on profits to employees employed in establishments and to make recommendations to the Government. The Government of India accepted the recommendations of the Commission subject to certain modifications. To implement these recommendations the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 was enacted, which came into force on 25.9.1965.

The objective of the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 is to provide for the payment of bonus to the persons employed in certain establishments on the basis of profits or on the basis of production or productivity and for matter connected therewith.

It applies to (i) Every Factory; and (ii) Every other establishment in which 20 or more persons are employed on any day during an accounting year subject to the exemptions under section 32. Every employee shall be entitled to be paid by his employer in an accounting year, bonus, in accordance with the provisions of this Act, provided he has worked in the establishment for not less than thirty working days in that year. While the minimum bonus is 8.33% of the salary or wage earned by the employee during the accounting year, the maximum bonus is 20% of such salary or wage.

Two ceilings are available under the said Act generally known as eligibility limit and calculation ceiling respectively. Clause 13 of Section 2 of Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 defines an employee based on salary or wage per mensem. This is usually taken as the 'eligibility limit' for computation of bonus. Similarly, Section 12 of the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 provides for calculation of bonus of an employee based on salary or wage per mensem. This is known as 'calculation ceiling'.

The two ceilings are revised from time to time to keep pace with the price rise and increase in the salary structure. At present, the calculation ceiling has been enhanced to Rs.7000 or the minimum wage for the scheduled employment, as fixed by the appropriate Government, whichever is higher and the eligibility limit has been enhanced to Rs.21,000/-.

Due to this revision, additional 55 lakh workers would be benefited. This would indeed, be a good gesture on the part of the Government towards the labour fraternity.
