Sub: Submission of e-Revision Authorities through the e-Revision utility by the PAOs reg.

Revision of about 9.5 lakhs Pre-2016 pension cases & about 16000 post-2016 cases became due as per the recommendations of 7th CPC. As per DP&PW OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04/08/2016, pension cases of Pre-2016 pensioners have already been revised by the banks by applying the multiplication factor of 2.57.

2. However, pension of pre-2016 cases needs to be revised by concerned PAOs as per OM No
38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12th May,2017. For these revision cases, CPAO has developed an
e-Revision utility for sending the revision cases to CPAO. It has been noticed that some
Ministries/Departments are sending on-line digitally signed revision authorities and also
sending the same authorities manually to CPAO.

3. All the Ministries/Departments are requested to instruct PAOS of their Ministries/Departments that if PAOs have already sent authorities through e-Revision utility and signed digitally, there is no need to send manual revision authorities to

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Subject: Stoppage of Holiday Over-Time in Ordnance Factories - Protest of.
Reference: MoD ID No.DDP-P0012/8/2017-D(Prod-II) dt.08-08-2017.

Respected Sir,
I have been directed to bring the following for your kind immediate intervention.

Vide Ministry of Defence letter cited under reference above, Ordnance Factory Board has been directed to completely stop Holiday Overtime in the Factories.

In this connection we submit that the said order issued by concerned officials is totally unjustified and is without proper application of mind, suffice to say that Over time in the Ordnance Factories is not granted as a matter of routine or luxury but there is a time tested and logical formula vis-à-vis production output on the basis of which the action is taken and it is quantifiable.

Here it may also be pertinent to note that as per the annual statement of accounts of the factories, the total cost of labour on the cost of production is constant between 12 to 13% whereas other elements like Material, Fixed Over heads ,Variable Over heads consumes bulk of cost of production.

Thus targeting Labour to cut cost is not only an unprofessional approach but also shows the biased mindset of the concerned Officials of MoD which is adversely affecting the moral, dedication of the employee and output of the OFB organization.

There is large scale resentment amongst employees as a result of which whimsical diktat of the Ministry and we seek your immediate personal intervention in the matter to provide justice to the workmen.
We therefore once again demand that status quo ante be restored, pending further discussion on the matter.

Thanking You,
Sincerely yours
General Secretary

Canteen Stores Department (CSD) go with online soon

Canteen Stores Department (CSD) go with online soon

India's largest retail network, the Canteen Stores Department (CSD) which supplies goods at concessional rates to defence personnel from the Army, Navy and Air Force is planning a makeover, according to a Times of India report.

The retailer is planning to go online, with the entire range of white goods brands available on the CSD website. Customers can select and make online payment directly to the white goods company via internet banking.

Aside from expanding its depots, the retailer is also looking at putting in place systems that will allow customers to purchase the latest goods with no time lag.

Also, the documents needed for purchases will soon be made online. The main objective of the move is to ensure its 1.2 crore cardholders get to purchase the latest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) on the same day that they are stocked on the canteen's retail shelves.

Instead of two board meetings in a year, the retailer is planning to have six meetings for faster clearance of new product introductions.

“We are already in talks with leading FMCG companies like Hindustan Unilever and Procter & Gamble to ensure our customers get to sample their products as soon as they are launched,” Air Vice-Marshal M Baladitya, chairman, board of administration and general manager of CSD told TOI exclusively.
Baladitya is hopeful of carrying out the changes by Diwali this year.

Also, CSD is talking to leading consumer durable makers to smoothen the process on white goods.
First started in 1921 for British troops, CSD is now planning to expand depots in places such as Bhubaneswar (Orissa), Danapar (Bihar) and Himachal Pradesh. Currently, CSD has 34 depots and 4,500 outlets.

As per the report, major contributors to CSD's sales are toiletries (around Rs 4,500 crore), white goods and cars (around Rs 4,000 crore), packaged foods and supplements (Rs 3,500 crore), liquor (Rs 3,000 crore) and other household goods & luggage (around Rs 3,000 crore).

From a turnover of Rs 48 lakh in 1948, CSD comes all the way and had Rs 17,000 crore turnover in 2016-17.

7th CPC: Government till not clear about minimum pay

7th Pay Commission: Government till not clear about minimum pay

New Delhi: Finance Ministry top official surprised his colleagues by enquiring whether central government employees' minimum pay improved if they got the much-talked-about minimum pay and hike in basic pay.
The official asked the question in a comment that he wrote on a note sent to him by the central government employees through National Joint Council of Action (NJCA).

In its note, the NJCA requested the ministry to hike the minimum pay in the central government employees' pay structure.

The 7th Pay Commission recommended a minimum basic pay for Central government employees of Rs 18,000 with a maximum pay of Rs 2.50 lakh per month.

However, the NJCA is demanding for hike in minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000, which is now under consideration by the National Anomaly Committee.

"The government used to think that minimum pay under the 7th Pay Commission recommendation did not change central government employees' pay structure. Please discuss," the ministry wrote on the NJCA note and forwarded to the National Anomaly Committee.

The note of NJCA, informed the ministry that they their status in the new pay scale was lower than what it was in the previous scale. The note also said that the 7th Pay Commission made the pay gap of lower paid employees and top bureaucrats higher about to 1:14 ratio from 1:12 in the previous pay structure.

In last year, when the new pay scale was given nod by the cabinet, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had assured unions leaders of central government employees in the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh's house that the pay gap should be minimized.

Finance Ministry's comment on the note came as a shock to many central government employees, particularly because it comes after above one year of the new pay structure had been implemented.
"We are shocked to know that our ministry does not show interest in the hike in minimum pay," a finance ministry official said seeking anonymity.

"If FM also does not show interest in it, then I wonder how, in the first place, he supported to hike in minimum pay," he said.

The notification for the new pay scale was issued on July 25, 2016 and it was implemented for 5.2 million central government employees with retrospective effect from January 1, 2016.
