(Railway Board)
S. No. PC-VI/314

(As per mailing list)
Sub: Advance increments granted to Stenographers of Subordinate Offices on qualifying speed test in shorthand at 100/120 w.p.m. regarding.
   In accordance with the provisions contained in this Ministry’s letter No.PC-IV/2010/increment/1 dated 19.08.2010 on the subject cited above, the Advance Increments granted to Stenographers of Subordinate Offices on qualifying speed test in shorthand at 100/120 w.p.m. are treated as pay for all purposes.
   2. Consequent upon implementation of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 the concept of Pay Band and Grade Pay has been introduced. Since, there are no fixed rates of increments now, the manner in which advance increment(s) are to be computed has been examined afresh keeping in view the clarification given by DOP&T. Further, after issue of clarifications vide Board's letter of even number dated 11.04.2011, this Ministry has received references from some Railways/Production Unit seeking clarifications regarding grant of advance increments. Accordingly, it has been decided that the grant of advance increments to Stenographers of Subordinate Offices on qualifying the speed test in shorthand at 100/120 w.p.m. after 01 .01.2006 may be regulated as under:-

   a) In terms of the instructions contained in this Ministry’s letter No.PC-IV/2010/increment/1 dated 19.08.2010, the advance increments granted to Stenographers of Subordinate office on qualifying Speed Test in Shorthand at 100/120 w.p.m. in terms of Board’s letter No.PC-III/74/INC/3 dated 07.11.1975 are to be treated as pay for all purposes and the past cases are also to be regulated accordingly. These advance increments were therefore to be taken into account for fixation in the Revised Pay for those officials who were in receipt of such increments in the pre-revised pay. In such cases, the advance increments will no longer continue as a separate element.
   b) In respect of persons who become eligible for grant of advance increments consequent upon implementation of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, the advance increment may be calculated by granting increment @ 3% of the Basic Pay on the date of passing of the test. Two advance increments may be calculated by granting two increments @ 3% of the Basic Pay on the date of passing the test. The amount of this increment may be treated as a separate element in addition to the Basic Pay (Pay in the Pay Band + Grade Pay), till such advance increments are taken into account as per (C) of this letter.
   c) Once the advance increments are taken into account for the purpose of pay fixation on promotion or being placed in a higher scale on grant of ACP/MACP or fixation of pay due to revision of pay scale etc., the advance increments will no longer be continued as a separate element as it will be merged with the basic pay.
   3. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Government of India 
Maulana Azad Road, Nirman Bhawan
New Delhi 110 108 dated the 14th February 2013.
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Revival of Continuous Empanelment Scheme’ for private hospitals and diagnostic centres under CGHS
   With a view to ensuring comprehensive health care to CGHS beneficiaries, CGHS has been, apart from the Government Hospitals, empanelling private hospitals and diagnostic centres by floating tenders periodically. The latest tender process in this context commenced in the second half of 2009. Even the already empanelled hospitals (including dental clinics and eye centres) / diagnostic centres under CGHS were required to submit the bids under this tender process. Through this process, package rates for different treatment procedures and investigations were notified in 2010. As a part of this process, certain hospitals and diagnostic centres which accepted these rates and also signed MOAs with CGHS were notified in CGHS covered cities. Subsequently, with a view to empanel more hospitals and diagnostic centers , continuous empanelment scheme was initiated in December 2010 and was in operation till July 2011 in some cities & till 26th December 2011 in some other cities.
   2. However, it has been noticed that the number of hospitals and diagnostic centres notified as empanelled under CGHS is not adequate to provide a satisfactory level of healthcare to CGHS beneficiaries in all areas of CGHS covered cities.

   3. Accordingly, it has become necessary to revive ‘Continuous Empanelment Scheme’, to empanel more hospitals and diagnostic centres to take care of existing inadequacy. In this background, it has been decided to invite private hospitals and diagnostic centers to come forward and apply for empanelment under CGHS if, they are willing to accept the rates notified by CGHS in 2010 & as per OM No. Misc. 1002/2006/CGHS(R&H)/ CGHS (P) dated 6/2/2013 and fulfill the same terms and conditions as notified earlier under ‘Continuous Empanelment Scheme’ except for the following modifications:-
   a) Hospitals / Diagnostic centres shall be empanelled for all facilities in all specialties available in the hospitals including those listed under super specialties. Existing hospitals already on panel of CGHS shall not be allowed to add selective specialties./super specialties and will have to offer all available facilities (Undertaking shall be submitted on Rs 100/- non- Judicial Stamp paper attested by Notary Public by hospitals already on panel of CGHS that such hospital shall abide by the terms and conditions of empanelment for the additional facilities and would provide facilities to CGHS beneficiaries in all available specialties/Super specialties (list all the facilities available ) in addition to the agreement signed earlier by such hospitals). The empanelled hospitals will not be permitted to add new specialties or discontinue some specialties subsequently without the approval of the Government.
   b) Application under Super Specialty category or change of category to Super Specialty from already empanelled and other eligible hospitals will be considered only if all facilities available in the hospital are offered as per applicable CGHS rates.
   c) The scrutiny of the applications and finalization of the lists of eligible hospitals and diagnostic centres of a particular city shall be done by a committee under the chairmanship of AD/JD CGHS of concerned city with two senior most CMOs of that city as members.
   d) Addl. Director / Joint Director of concerned CGHS city may inform the eligible hospitals/ diagnostic centres to submit the letters of acceptance of the terms and conditions of the empanelment process. ADs/JDs shall send the details of eligible hospitals / diagnostic centres to Director, CGHS after signing MOA with eligible hospitals/ diagnostic centres and obtaining Performance Bank Guarantee so that the eligible hospitals / diagnostic centres shall be notified by Ministry of Health & Family Welfare as empanelled hospitals / diagnostic centres under CGHS.
   4. Empanelment shall be for a period of one year from the date of notification or till new empanelment process , whichever is earlier. All the empanelled hospitals / diagnostic centres shall however, have to participate in the new empanelment process, as and when initiated in order to continue their empanelment under CGHS.
   5. The continuous empanelment scheme would be in force till next empanelment.
   6. Further, the undersigned is directed to refer to the Office Memorandum of even number dated 15.12.2012 and to state that it has been decided to extend the validity of empanelment of presently empanelled hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and Imaging Centers on the same terms and conditions under which they were empanelled for one year or till next empanelment, whichever is earlier.
   7. The application form for the continuous empanelment scheme can be downloaded from the website of CGHS, www. mohfw.nic.in \cghsnew\index.asp.

Withholding of 10% gratuity from the retiring Government servants — clarification regarding.



No.20/16/1998-P&PW (F)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare

Khan Market, New Delhi-110 003
Dated the 19th February 2013.


OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Withholding of 10% gratuity from the retiring Government servants — clarification regarding.

The undersigned is directed to say that this Department has been receiving representations from individuals and Pensioners Associations that Government Departments have been withholding 10% of the amount of gratuity from each retirees even when they had not been provided any Government accommodation.

2 The recovery and adjustment of Govt. dues from retirement gratuity is regulated under Rules 71 to 73 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972. Rule (1) to (3) of Rule 72 ibid provide for recovery of actual amount of Govt. dues in respect of Govt. accommodation from pay & allowances before retirement and from Retirement Gratuity. Sub rule (5) of Rule 72 ibid stipulates that if, in any particular case, it is not possible for the Directorate of Estates to determine the outstanding licence fee, that Directorate shall inform the Head of Office that ten per cent of gratuity may be withheld pending receipt of further information. The withheld amount of gratuity is to be paid back to government servant immediately on production of ‘No Demand Certificate’ (NDC) from Dte of Estates. Thus, if no ‘Govt. dues’ in respect of Govt. accommodation are outstanding then the rules do not provide for withholding of any part of the gratuity on retirement of the Govt. servant. If no Government accommodation is allotted to a Government servant, in accordance with Dte of Estate’s OM No.18011/5/1990-Pol-III dated 12.10.2010, it is for the Administrative Ministry to issue an `NDC”.


3. As regards recovery in respect of ‘Govt. dues’ other than those pertaining to Govt. accommodation, the Head of Office is required to complete assessment of such dues eight months prior to the date of retirement [Rule 73(2)]. The actual amount of such dues and the dues which come to the notice subsequently and remaining outstanding are to be adjusted against the amount of retirement gratuity becoming payable to the Govt. servant on retirement.Thus, there is no provision for withholding any part of gratuity for the purpose of recoveryof outstanding government dues other than those pertaining to government accommodation.

(As per mailing list)
Subject :- Modified ACP Scheme (MACPS) for Railway employees - clarification-regarding.
   Reference is invited to the Board’s letter of even number dated 10-06-2009 regarding the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) to Railway employees. Pursuant to the discussions in the meeting of National Advisory Committee held on 17-07-12 and subsequent meeting on 27-07-2012 held with the Staff Side and in continuation to clarifications issued vide Board’s letter of even number dated 28-12-2010, it is further clarified as under:-
2 (i). Financial upgradation under MACPS in the case of staff who joined another unit/organization on request.

   Railway Board’s letter of even number dated 28-12-2010 provides that in case of transfer ‘including unilateral transfer on request’, regular service rendered in previous organization/office shall be counted along with the regular service in the new organization/office for the purpose of getting financial upgradations under the MACP Scheme. However, financial upgradation under the MACP Scheme shall be allowed in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of revised Pay Bands as given in Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. It is now further clarified that wherever an official, in accordance with terms and conditions of transfer on own volition to a Lower post, is reverted to the lower Post/Grade from the promoted Post/Grade before being relieved for the new organization/office, such past promotion in the previous organization/office will be ignored for the purpose of MACP Scheme in the new organization/office. In respect of those cases where benefit of pay protection have been allowed at the time of unilateral transfer to other organization/unit and thus the employee had carried the financial benefit of promotion, the promotion earned in previous organization has to be reckoned for the purpose of MACP Scheme.
2. (ii) Benchmark for MACP Scheme:
   Para 17 of Annexure-1 of Railway Board’s letter dt. 10-06-09 provide that the financial upgradation would be on Non-functional basis subject to fitness, in the hierarchy of grade pay within the PB-1. Thereafter for upgradation under the MACPS, the benchmark of ‘Good’ would be applicable till the grade pay of 6600/- in PB-3. The benchmark will be ‘Very Good’ for financial upgradation to the grade pay of 7600 and above. Railway Board’s letter of even number dated 28-12-2010 provides that where the financial upgradation under MACPS also happens to be in the promotional grade and benchmark for promotion is lower than the benchmark for granting the benefit under MACPS as mentioned in para-17 ibid, the benchmark for promotion shall apply to MACP also. It is now further clarified that wherever promotions are given on non-selection basis (i.e. on seniority-cum-fitness basis), the prescribed benchmark as mentioned in para-17 of Annexure-I to Board’s letter dated 10-06-2009 shall not apply for the purpose of grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.
   3. The instructions issued on MACP Scheme vide Board’s letter of even number dated 10-06-2009 stands modified to the above extent.
   4. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Launching of Web Based software solution for Cadre Management of CSS


No. 21/11/2010-CS.I (U)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pension
Department of Personnel & Training
2nd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan,
Khan Market, New Delhi
Dated : 4th February 2013
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Launching of Web Based software solution for Cadre Management of CSS
   The undersigned is to refer to this Department’s d.o. letter of even number dated 15th June 2012 and subsequent communications on the subject mentioned above. CS Division, Department of Personnel & Training is the cadre controlling authority for the three Central Secretariat Services viz. Central Secretariat Service (CSS),Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS) and Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS). The cadre management functions of these services are being carried out through paper communications. It involves manual updatation of data by keeping track of each and every cadre management activity which is found to be a cumbersome task and unreliable as many of the orders issued by Ministries/Departments for posting/ transfer/ relieving on deputation / disciplinary proceedings are not received by CS Division. Absence of accurate, updated information leads to delay in carrying out cadre management activities and avoidable reworking.
   2. To obviate various difficulties presently being faced in the cadre management activities, this Department has undertaken the task of development of a web based cadre management system for the three Central Secretariat Services. The software has since been developed and is being tested at CS Division level.

   3. The software has also been hosted in a test server at URL http://10.21.145.125The system is intended for the following users:
   (i) CS Division, DoPT and AVD.I Division, DoPT - being cadre controlling authority and disciplinary authority for CSS Officers. CS Division will function as the administrator of the software.
   (ii) Ministries/ Departments - Nodal officers can view the data in respect of officers under their administrative control and forward applications of officers for cadre clearance/VRS. Further, all the cadre management activities such as monitoring of submission of immovable property returns and APAR of officers under their administrative control, relieving and joining orders of officers, training, encadrement proposals, seeking vigilance clearance from AVD.I Division and from their own vigilance Division can be undertaken through the system.
   (iii) Individual CSS Officers They can view their data and make requests for cadre clearance for deputation through on-line system. They can also file annual Immovable Property Return, lodge grievances; view orders related to them and file applications for voluntary retirement. Officers can login to the system with the userid which is a combination of six digit date of birth followed by first four letters of their name i.e.: ddmmyyabcd. Officers may contact the nodal officers concerned for password for login to the system. They may change the password at their discretion.
   4. Incomplete Data Ministries/ Departments may appreciate that the software can be fully operationalised for cadre management activities only if the complete and accurate data in respect of all the CSS Officers are available in the system. However, despite twelve reminders in the past six months, data in respect of about 7300 CSS Officers have only been received till date. Data in respect of about 3000 employees are yet to be received. Data in respect of few of the officers is also not complete. It may be appreciated that in the absence of complete and accurate data, it is not possible to fully utilize the software for all cadre management activities envisaged for its development.
   5. Correctness of Data Ministries/ Departments and individual CSS officers should, therefore, immediately visit the website to check if their complete and updated data is available in the system. All CSS Officers should take a print out of their data and certify that the same is complete and correct in all respects. A copy of the data sheet duly certified for its correctness both by the individual officer and the Ministry/ Department concerned should be forwarded to CS.I Division of this Department for records. Further, if the data of any officer is not available in the system, the same should be forwarded in the MS Access sheet to this Department without any delay, considering the fact that sufficient time has already been given and the delay reflects very poorly on the officer and the Ministry/ Department concerned. Officers concerned are also informed if their complete and accurate data is not available in the system any request for cadre clearance for deputation, training etc. will not be considered. Further, their names may also get excluded from the zone of promotion. Accordingly, all officers in their own interest are advised to ensure that their data complete in all respects is available in the system. Once complete data is available in the system, this Department will issue posting, transfer and promotion orders only through the system. Similarly, thereafter, the Ministries/ Departments will issue orders for relieving/ joining, appointment on promotion etc. only through the system.
   6. Nodal Officers The details of nodal officers as intimated by Ministries/ Departments are at Annexure. The same may please be confirmed so that userid and password can be e-mailed to them. Ministries/ Departments may nominate two-three nodal officers viz, for Administration issues and vigilance related matters.
   7. To start with w.e.f. 1.3.2013, CS.I Division, DoPT will entertain requests for cadre clearance for deputation in respect of US and above officers only through the system. Once complete/accurate data in respect of all CSS officers is available, it will be extended to other cadre management activities.
   8. Improvements if any required in the software may please be brought to the notice of this Department urgently for consideration. This Department will also shortly organize workshops to nodal officers to clear doubts about the web based cadre management system. Further, a detailed manual will also be brought out shortly for guidance.
