Sir,
I am directed to refer to this Department’s letter no.01-07/2016-SPB-I dated 22.07.2016 on the above cited subject and say that following clarifications are hereby issued in respect of Casual Labourers in the Postal Department in line with DOP&T OM No.49014/2/2014-Estt(c) dated 28.07.2016:

(a) The Department’s letter No.01-07/2016-SPB-I dated 22.07.2016 restores the provisions of the scheme as it existed prior to this Department’s letter No.45-6/2005-SPB-I dated 02.09.2005. The benefit of GPF and Old Pension Scheme is applicable to all those Casual Labourers who are covered under the Casual Labourers (Grant of Temporary Status and Regularization) Scheme issued vide letter No.45-95/87-SPB-I dated 12.04.1991 even if they have been regularized on or after 01-01-2004.

(b) As the benefit of Old Pension Scheme and GPF is applicable to only those casual workers who are covered under the above stated scheme of 1991, all the circles may strictly ensure that it does not lead to demand by regularly recruited fresh employees appointed on or after 01.01.2004 for similar benefit in place of NPS.


Yours faithfully,

New Delhi: With Centre deciding to advance Budget 2017-18 presentation by about a month, the Finance Ministry has come out with comprehensive instructions for different ministries for completion of the exercise.

"Several structural reforms being undertaken this year, including, removal of distinction between plan and non-plan expenditure, advancement of budget presentation by about an month and merger of demands of Railways.

“Due to these changes, the timelines and informational requirements from the Ministries have also changed. These have been duly incorporated in the Budget Circular," said the circular.

It also contains the compendium of instructions issued from time to time by Ministry of Finance on various issues.

The RE (Revised Estimate) meetings of ministries/ departments will be scheduled from October 17.

The annual exercise of budgeting aims at detailing the roadmap for efficient use of public resources taking into account the socio-economic and political priorities. Budgeting involves determination of what is to be done and achieved, the manner in which it is to be done and the resources required for the same.

With government deciding to do away with the Five year Plans post 12th Plan ending 2016-17, the Finance Ministry will carry out resource estimation for funding of various Central schemes and programmes as well as central funding for the State/UT schemes/programmes.

The ministry will be guided by the vision document being prepared by the NITI Aayog, as this will help in setting out the resource priorities of the government.

It has also asked the ministries to come up with multi-year projections of budgetary resources.

"This will need to follow the resource estimation of tax, non-tax and other receipts of the Centre for the budget year and the projection period in the medium term as per the FRBM Act," the circular said.
