No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B.
Dated : 13/07/2016
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir.
Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff – reg.

The Railway Board is aware that the Union Cabinet has decided on 29th June 2016 for implementation of revised Pay Matrices of the 7th Central Pay Commission w.e.f. 01/01/2016 duly applying 2.57 multiplier factor. The notification, in this regard, is expected from the Ministry of Finance in due course.

In this connection, the NFIR invites Railway Board’s attention to letter No. PC- VI/2008/1/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 relating to Pay Fixation tables for Running Staff which were given effect from 01/01/2006 and wherein the Fitment Factor was 2.118 for Running Staff (in view of pay element) instead of 1.86.
Considering the 30% pay element of Running Stuff which is needed to be taken for arriving at multiplier factor, the Federation is of the view that the Fitment Factor for Pay Fixation of Running Staff in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix shall be “3” instead of “2.57”.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to take the above points into consideration for the purpose of determining the Fitment Factor as “3” in the case of Running Staff for granting 7th CPC Pay Fixation w.e.f. 01/01/2016.
Yours faithfully

7th CPC: Key things you should avoid doing with the additional money

7th Pay Commission: Key things you should avoid doing with the additional money

New Delhi: Very soon fresh hike in salaries will be visible due to implementation of recommendations made by the 7th Pay Commission to the government. However, it’s highly recommended that the additional money you receive is invested wisely. You should not indulge in impulsive purchases and ensure the money is used to meet your long-term financial goals. So, the money should be utilized judiciously.

Here are key things you should avoid doing with the additional money:


1) Don’t purchase additional vehicle, house
It’s advisable that you must not go for a fresh purchase of vehicle when the current one is already serving your purpose and you have other important financial goals to meet. Value of vehicle only depreciates with time and hence, doesn’t qualify as a very good choice.

What for are you purchasing a new house, if you already have a good enough residential area to live in? In case you are planning to rent a house, idea is not bad, but not best even. If you are a wise man, you will always go for a loan in addition to an amount you already have so as to observe tax benefits. However, on rough calculation, rent will only provide you yield of 2 percent against the loan cost of about 10 percent in addition to the processing fees. Also, there is no guarantee, the area that you want to rent finds a tenant as soon as you want. Same is true in the case you wan to sell the apartment considering weak realty market.

2) No need for additional foreign holiday
No logic justifies spend on additional foreign holiday in place of important financial investments. Although, you can avail tax relief on vacations in India, twice in four years, it’s not a good idea by any means.

3) Avoid unnecessary shopping
This is the common ailment that almost every Indian suffers from. When on shopping spree, we generally forget, when to start and where to stop.

4) Be judicious in gold purchase
Financial advisors always advise to only buy gold as safe haven. If you have better investment options in front of you such as tax-free bonds, ETFs and mutual funds, avoid purchase of the bullion as the returns are much less here.

5) No need for prepayment of home loans
It’s always advised that you should not prepay home loan since it provides tax benefits that actually make the loan cheap. You better pay your outstanding loans in form of credit card balances and others.

7th Pay Commission allowances – Common allowances to be examined separately

7th Pay Commission allowances – Common allowances to be examined separately

Govt has formed a committee to examine the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission relating to all 196 allowances. Here is an analysis on why Common allowances should not be clubbed with other allowances

7th Pay Commission Allowances – Clubbing of examination of Common Allowances such as House Rent Allowance, Dearness Allowance, Children Education Allowance, Transport Allowance etc with lesser known and paid to few only allowances would cause more delay

7th Pay Commission Allowances – It may be recalled that 7th Pay Commission abolished as many as 51 allowances after examining 196 existing Allowances and also subsumed 37 Allowances.

As a result of such major change in 7th Pay Commission Allowances, Cabinet has decided that recommendations in respect of all the allowances are to be examined by a Committee headed by Finance Secretary.

What are those 196 allowances ?

Now, let us have a look at the a summary of recommendations in respect of all 196 allowances which have been taken for examination by 7th Pay Commission.

It could be seen that excepting certain common allowances that are granted to all Central Government Employees such as Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowances, Transport Allowance, Children Education Allowance, Tour Travelling Allowance, etc, many of the allowances are payable only to very few employees on the basis of nature of work, qualification, risk involved, place of work etc.

So, those common allowances could be examined separately without causing delay in revision and payment of these allowances.

It is of the opinion all benefiting employees out of implementation of 7th Pay Commission that clubbing these common allowances with other cadre specific allowances, examination of which involve considerable technical study. Hence it would result in more delay in taking decision on Common allowances as well by Govt.

Ultimately, it would result in considerable monetory loss to Central Government Employees as revision in allowances are paid on prospective basis only.

In fact, 7th Pay Commission itself has categorised these 196 allowances under 15 categories.

Sl
No.
Category No. of
Allowances
1 Allowances payable for Additional/Extra Duty 14
2 Allowances related to Knowledge Updates 3
4 Allowances related to Working on Holidays 3
5 Allowances related to Housing 7
6 Allowances related to Good Service 4
8 Allowances related to Risk and Hardship 51
9 Allowances for Running Staff of Indian Railways 13
10 Allowances related to Sports 2
11 Sumptuary Allowances 5
12 Allowances related to Training 2
13 Allowances related to Travel 13
14 Allowances related to Uniform 9
15 Other Allowances 52

Total: 196

It is found that all the common allowances viz., Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance, Transport Allowance, Tour Travelling Allowance and Children Education Allowance, fall under 3 categories only out of 15 categories of Allowances discussed in detail by 7th Pay Commission.

Those categories are
1. Allowances related to Housing,
2. Allowances related to Travel and
3. Other Allowances
Even if allowances under these 3 categories are given priority in examination, all the main allowances could be examined by the Committee formed by the Govt well in prior, so that there will not be more delay for revision of Common Allowances.

We hope all Staff Unions and associations would take this aspect in to consideration to get the revision of common allowances as early as possible.
