These orders are applicable to all Central Government employees and Central Government pensioners. Which has affected both the serving employees and pensioners and especially to those who have retired during the period 1st Jan 2020 to 1st Jan 2021.

The Covid-19 situation in India has improved considerably and under control with a vast population of the country are unaffected by the Covid-19, The Covid cases in September 2020 was around 95,000 cases daily , on 4th January 2021 is around17,000 cases which is lowest in six months, with less mortality rate.

The economic situation in the country has also improved compared to April- May 2020 situation, where the industrial production had gone down to minus 57% and in October to plus 3.6 % Industrial production has vastly improved with a recovery , the financial position of the country has also improved considerably the GST collections has shown a positivity in last four months.

MonthGST collection in rupees crores
March, 202097,597
September, 202095,480
October, 20201,05,155
November 20201,04,963

The Goods and Service Tax collection for December 2020 touched a record high of Rs 1.15 lakh crore. This is the highest ever collections since the implementation of the countrywide tax in July 2017.

Request to the PM to release DA to the central government employees and DR to the pensioners

The Central Government employees have attended their assigned duties even during the pandemic situation, many have lost their sacrificed their life for the nation building, hence there contribution should be taken into the account.

The additional financial implication on account of this increase in Dearness Allowance for additional 11% DA is due which works out to 13,000 crores annually, which is manageable under the existing financial conditions , more over this will benefit about 49.93 lakh Central Government employees and 65.26 lakh pensioners who pump this money into the market which also improves the economy considerably and about 30% of the amount spent is collected back by the Government by way of taxes.

Date: 10.01.2021

Respected Shri Narendra Modi ji,

I write to bring to your attention a matter affecting the rights and entitlements of Central Government employees in light of actions taken by the Finance Ministry. Deviating from the decision of the Cabinet to release 4% additional Dearness Allowance (DA) in light of the Covid-19 pandemic , the Ministry of Finance on 23rd April 2020 issued an order for freezing of DA to the central govt. employees and DR to the pensioners till July 2021. Effectively, these actions, amidst a pandemic, have subjected the Central Govt. employees and pensioners to undue financial hardship.

Freezing of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to Central Government pensioners at current rates till July 2021

Successive Central Pay Commissions have dealt in detail about the payment of DA to the Central Govt. employees and its importance to the working conditions of Central Govt. Employees. The decision by the Finance Ministry is in complete disregard to the rights of these workers and the reasons for the grant of such an allowance by the Cabinet. The dearness allowance (DA) stems from the need to protect the erosion in the real value of basic salary on account of inflation and thereby provides employees with the ability to deal with the ever-increasing inflation in the country, even in their retirement. The Covid-19 pandemic has taken an unbearable toll on the lives of all people and while many have been able to avoid the pandemic at its deadliest, Central Govt. Employees have worked tirelessly to keep the country moving and their service to the nation cannot be ignored. Many of these workers have even succumbed to the deadly coronavirus.

In view of the above, I request you to kindly intervene in the matter and reconsider the decision, since the employees who have retired/retiring w.e.f. 01/01/2020 are not getting the benefit of the DA increase in their terminal benefits, such as leave encashment, gratuity etc. I once again request you to withdraw the decision taken by the Government to freeze the 3 installments of DA due for the employees and the pensioners and release the same to them at the earliest. The Government must ensure that its employees are treated with dignity and their rights are not compromised due to governmental apathy.

Yours sincerely

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

CSSS promotion orders 2021

Subject: Implementation of orders relating to promotion of officers in various grades in CSSS – reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s Orders relating to ad-hoc promotion in various grades of CSSS Cadre issued recently, as per the details below:

S.No.DescriptionOrder No.Date of issue
iPromotion of Senior Principal Private Secretary to Principal Staff Officer1/ 2/ 2020-CS.IIA14.12.2020 &15.12.2020
iiPromotion of Principal Private Secretary to Senior Principal Private Secretary1I3/ 2020-CS .IIA01.01.2021

vPromotion of Stenographer Grade ‘D’ to Personal Assistant5/ 1/2020-CS.Il(C)29. 12.2020
CSSS promotion orders 2021

2. The ad-hoc promotion orders had to be made to address the urgent requirement of various cadre units for manpower at various levels. However, it is seen that a number of officers have not joined. It may be appreciated that ad-hoc promotion is resorted to as a special dispensation for ensuring efficiency in Government’s functioning. The non-joining of officers is defeating the very purpose for which these ad-hoc promotions were made.

3. Hence, in partial modification of the Orders mentioned in para-1 above, all the Cadre Units are hereby directed to issue instructions to the promoted officers in all grades, who have not yet assumed the charge of the posts, to assume the charge immediately and not later than 15.01.2021, failing which the promotion orders with respect to non-joinee Officers, shall be liable to be withdrawn, apart from debarment from ad-hoc promotion or other suitable consequences. Further, the vacancies on this account shall be filled up by considering eligible officers next in order of seniority.

4. The cadre units are also requested to submit a report by 15.01.2021 to this Department at email: bhagirathjha.68[at]gov.in

5. All the concerned Ministries/ Departments are hereby requested to forward the list of officers who have not assumed the charge of the post on promotion by 15.01.2021, 03:30 P.M. on the email id mentioned above.
