Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may satisfy the Government Staff
It is believed that Payment of
Allowances in Revised pay may at least satisfy the Government Staff,
despite the fact that the Pay Hike is not sufficient.7th CPC Allowances
Bapus are annoyed about the inordinate
delay in announcing Allowances. Talks are doing rounds that the
government is deliberately playing the delaying tactics to make the CG
Staff to accept the decisions of Allowance Committee.
Central Staff upset with Pay Hike
Already the Central Government Staff are
very much upset with Pay Hike recommended for next Ten Long years. They
in fact are not happy about the Arrears paid to them. Though the Govt
has defended that the Pay Revision arrears will not be as high as in
previous Pay Commission, because Arrears for couple of years had been
paid in previous Pay Commission. But this time Pay Revision took place
within seven months from the due date. So obviously the Pay Revision
Arrears will be lesser than previous Pay Commission.
Though a Committee was formed to review
the Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor, it is believed that it was wrapped
up already. But the federations are Optimistic. They expect somehow the
Committee will help them to pacify the Govt Servants on this particular
But nonpayment of Allowances in revised
Pay will certainly axe the feel good factor in Central Government
Offices. They are started losing patience over it and expect the
government to announce it soon. Because the take home pay after pay
revision is unbelievably very low comparing to the previous Pay
commission. The Central government should not reduce the rate of
Allowances and it should be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016

CIRCULAR LETTER No.27/200/2016/33
TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS, STATE FEDERATIONS AND ALL INDIA BANKWISE ORGANISATIONS:
Reg: Compassionate ground appointments in the Banks
are aware that despite the guidelines from the Government of India,
some of the Banks are not implementing the scheme on compassionate
ground appointment properly both in regard to eligibility and also on
relaxations in qualifications. In the Associate Banks, even the Govt.
guidelines have not been placed before the Boards of the respective
Banks and unilateral instructions of the SBI are being adhered to
whereby compassionate ground appointments are being denied. From AIBEA
we have taken up the matter with the Finance Minister. Arising out of
the recent UFBU meeting, UFBU also has addressed a letter to the Finance
Minister and same is reproduced herein for the information of our
UFBU Letter to Finance Minister
Date: 21st May, 2016
Shri Arun Jaitley, Hon'ble Minister of Finance, Government of India, New Delhi.
SCHEME FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT IN PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS
are thankful to you for restoring the Compassionate Appointment Scheme
in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) vide your letter D.O.F.No.18/2/2013 IR
dated the 7th August 2014, conveying the approval of the Government to
open the Compassionate Appointment in PSBs on the lines of Central
Government with a request to the Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) to take
appropriate action to circulate the revised scheme to all PSBs for
adoption with the approval of their respective Boards. Further, the
decision of the Government was conveyed by Ministry of Finance vide
letter F.No.18/2/2013 IR dated 05.12.2014 that all PSBs can have both
the options i.e., compassionate appointment or payment of lumpsum
2. It will note be out of context to mention
here that the issue of restoration of compassionate appointment scheme
in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) has been under discussions between UFBU
and IBA since the last ten years and in accordance with the suggestion
of Department of Financial Services, a joint proposal on broad
parameters was submitted by IBA for approval of the Government. The
sustained struggle by UFBU ended with your kind intervention resulting
in approval as above from the Government of India.
3. However, we
are shocked to observe that the managements of some of the banks have
unilaterally decided to continue, with certain modifications, the scheme
for compassionate appointment in exceptional circumstances only and the
scheme for payment of Ex-gratia Lumpsum Amount in lieu of Compassionate
Appointment, totally ignoring the approval of Government of India to
open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs)
on the lines of Central Government.
4. Further, the concessions /
relaxations, as provided under the scheme envisaged by the Government,
as applicable to Central Government employees, such as exemption from
the requirement of minimum educational qualification etc., have not been
extended in the Banking Industry, thereby making them ineligible and
denying the appointments.
5. The unilateral decisions of the
managements as above, is not only total ignorance of the directives of
the Government of India to open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on
the lines of Central Government but also deliberate utter disregard to
the sustained struggle of bank workmen and officers for nearly a decade
in getting the scheme approved by the Government.
6. Hence, we
earnestly seek your kind intervention in the matter and arrange to
appropriately instruct all the Public Sector Banks, which have not
introduced the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines of Central
Government, as approved by the Government of India and advised by you
and also on provision of concessions / relaxations as applicable to
Government employees, under the compassionate appointment scheme.
Please acknowledge receipt of this communication and advise us the developments in this regard.
With best regards
