Demand to removal of stagnation in services and timely promotions – Central Secretariat Services Forum

Central Secretariat employees demand timely promotions

Central Secretariat employees have demanded removal of stagnation in Services and facilitation of timely promotions. A deputation of “Central Secretariat Services Forum” led by its Convenor, Shri D.N.Sahoo called on Dr Jitendra Singh, Minister of State Personnel, here today and thanked him for his positive and cooperative response to all their grievances in the past one year and expressed the hope that he would also find a way out to overcome the anomaly in Services which has been adversely affecting them for the last several years. They also handed over a memorandum to him.

Dr Jitendra Singh assured that the problems and grievances faced by the employees will certainly be resolved and observed that the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) had, on his instructions, sent a favourable proposal in support of their demands but there were certain technical queries from the Finance Ministry which are also in the process of being replied.

Dr Jitendra Singh said the Modi Government took over with a pledge for ‘maximum Governance, minimum Government’ and adopted several radical measures to simplify governance and provide a comfortable and work-friendly environment for its officials. It is in the same spirit that the officials of different Secretariat Services are also intended to be made comfortable and achieve a sense of esteem through timely promotion and befitting status in their service career, he added.

Requirement of getting prior permission for going abroad on private visit – Dopt Orders on 27.7.2015

G.I., Dept. of Per. & Trg., O.M.No.11013/8/2015-Estt.A-III, dated July 27th 2015
Subject: Requirement of taking prior permission for leaving station/ headquarters for going abroad while on leave.
Undersigned is directed to refer to the Office Memorandum mentioned in the margin and to say that as per the existing instructions, when Government servant applies for leave for going abroad on a private visit, separately prior permission of the Competent authority for such visit is also required. While granting such permission, many factors are required to be kept in view. For example, permission may be denied in the interest of security. Individuals facing investigation/inquiry on serious charges, who may try to evade apprehension by police authorities, or facing the inquiry, may also not be permitted to leave the country. On the other hand, it is also desirable that requests of Government servants for such permission are dealt with expeditiously.
2. Keeping the above in view, it has been decided that requests for permission for private visits abroad may be processed in the attached formats. As clarified vide the OM dated 1st September, 2008, the competent authority for granting permission will be as per instructions issued by the Cadre Authority/administrative Ministry/Department. In the absence of any such instructions, it is the leave sanctioning authority. In case due to specific nature of work in a Department, administrative exigencies, or some adverse factors against the Government servant etc., it is not expedient to grant permission to the Government servant, such decision for refusal should not be taken below the level of Head of Department. It may be ensure,: that the decisions are conveyed to the Government servants within 21 days of receipt of complete application to the competent authority. Any lacunae in the application should be brought to the notice of the Government servant within one week of the receipt of the application. In the event of failure on the part of the competent authority to communicate its decision to the Government employee concerned with 21 days of receipt of the application, the employee concerned shall be free to assume that permission has been granted to him.
3. If in case some modifications are considered necessary due to specialised nature of work handled by any organisation, changes may be made with the approval of this Department.

रेलवे में नौकरी कर रहे लोगों के लिए कैट का बड़ा फरमान RAILWAY KE PORMOTION ME KOI RESERVATION NAHI - CAT

केंद्रीय प्रशासनिक ट्रिब्यूनल (कैट) ने रेलवे में तकनीकी कैडर के पुनर्गठन में आरक्षित वर्ग को प्रमोशन देने के मामले में आरक्षण को दरकिनार कर केवल वरिष्ठता के आधार पर प्रमोशन देने की बात कही है। ट्रिब्यूनल ने कहा कि प्रमोशन में कोई रिजर्वेशन लागू न हो।

कैट की एक खंडपीठ ने मंगलवार को रेलवे के डीजल लोकोमोटिव वर्क्स में डीजल टेक्नीशियन ग्रेड-1 के पद पर कार्यरत 39 कर्मचारियों की ओर से दायर एक याचिका के संबंध में यह फैसला सुनाया। उन्होंने रेलवे के उस फैसले को कैट में चुनौती दी थी, जिसमें कैडर का पुनर्गठन करते हुए एससी/एसटी कोटे के कर्मचारियों को प्रमोशन में लाभ पहुंचाया गया था।

इन कर्मियों ने रिजर्व कैटेगरी के कर्मचारियों को प्रमोट कर दिए जा रहे लाभ को चुनौती देते हुए याचिका दायर की थी। इसमें कहा गया था कि यह कैडर में 50 प्रतिशत से ज्यादा की रिजर्वेशन पा रहे हैं। याचिकाकर्ताओं के मुताबिक रेलवे के पास ऐसा कोई डाटा नहीं है, जिसके मुताबिक सही रूप से रिजर्व कैटेगरी को प्रमोशन का लाभ मिले।

रेलवे के गुरपिंदर सिंह समेत अन्य टेक्नीशियनों ने भारत सरकार, डीजल लोकोमोटिव वर्क्स पटियाला के सीएओ के खिलाफ अर्जी दायर की थी।

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EMPOWERMENT
RAJYA SABHA
UNSTARRED QUESTION NO-431
ANSWERED ON-23.07.2015
Annual income criteria for OBC
431 . Shri Devender Goud T.
(a) whether it is a fact that the annual income criteria for creamy layer for OBCs has to be revised once in every three years;
(b) if so, whether income criteria has been revised only three times since 1993;
(c) the reasons for not complying with the statutory obligation with regard to income criteria for OBCs;
(d) whether National Commission for OBC has recommended recently to increase the creamy layer from Rs. 6 lakhs to Rs. 10.5 lakhs; and
(e) if so, action taken on the above recommendation so far?
ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EMPOWERMENT
(SHRI KISHAN PAL GURJAR)
(a) to (c): An Expert Committee set up in 1993 recommended for income criteria of Rs. 1 lakh per annum. The Expert Committee observed that since the Rupee value is bound to undergo change, the income criteria in terms of Rupees will accordingly stand modified with the change in value. The modification exercise may, normally speaking, be undertaken in every three years but if the situation demands, an interregnum may be less.
Keeping in view the recommendations of the Expert Committee, Government of India decided to constitute a Review Committee to consider the issue of modification of income criteria and circulated a Cabinet Note in March, 1999. The Cabinet approved constituting the Review Committee in its meeting on 27.11.2001. With the approval of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, the work relating to review the income criteria to exclude cream layer was entrusted to the National Commission for Backward Classes. The National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) submitted its report in January, 2004. The income criteria were revised on 9.3.2004. Hence, there was no delay in effecting the first revision of income criteria. NCBC was requested to review in December, 2007 and they submitted their report in July, 2008. After inter-ministerial consultation and the approval of Cabinet, the second revision was effected in October, 2008. Again, in July 2011, NCBC was requested to review the same and they submitted a report in September, 2011. The Cabinet approved on 16.05.2013 the revision of income criteria from 4.5 lakhs to 6.00 lakhs and, accordingly the 3rd revision was effected w.e.f. 16.05.2013.
(d) & (e): The recommendation of the National Commission for Backward Classes in this regard was received and the same has been sent to Department of Personnel & Training.

Office Memorandum

Subject:- Preparation of list of Government servants due to retire along with their Aadhaar numbers and incorporation of Aadhaar number in PPO Booklet.

1. As a part of Digital India initiatives, Digital Life Certification (DLC) of the pensioner has been made an option for submission of life certificate by the pensioner in the month of November each year. As the role of Aadhaar has become vital, a column for Aadhaar has already been provided in the Pension Payment Order booklet. Accordingly, all Heads of Offices have to ensure that wherever available same is provided to their Pay & Accounts Offices alongwith pension papers of the retiring government servants. In this regard, a provision has also been made in CAM-52 (PPO Booklet) by adding the following columns after existing column no.5.

6. Permanent Account Number for Income Tax (PAN)
7. Aadhaar No. (if Available)
8. Mobile No. (if Available)
9. E-Mail ID (if Available)

2. The seeding of Aadhaar with pensioners’ PPO number and their bank accounts is being closely monitored by Prime Minister Office.

3. Further, attention is invited to Rule 56 of CCS (Pension) Rules which provides that:-
“(1) Every Head of Department shall have a list prepared every three months, that is, on the 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October each year, of all Government servants who are due to retire within the next twelve to fifteen months of that date.

4. To avoid any delay in finalizing the pension cases all Heads of Offices should have first-hand information of the Aadhaar number while preparing the list of retiring government officials as per the provision of Rule 56 of CCS (Pension) Rules and should provide the same to the Accounts Officer concerned not later than 31st January, 30th April, 31st July or 31st October of that year.

5. In has been observed that during the month of June, 2015; out of 3101fresh PPOs (Pension Payment Orders), only in 220 cases Aadhaar numbers have been indicated. All Pr.

मीटिंग में सुहागरात ऐप डाउनलोड करते रहे अधिकारी


Caught on camera: UP officer downloads porn app during meeting

रामपुर 

अधिकारी विकास कार्यों को लेकर कितने गंभीर हैं, इसका अंदाजा इसी बात से लगाया जा सकता है कि प्रमुख सचिव की मीटिंग में एक अधिकारी अपने मोबाइल पर ऐप डाउनलोड करने में लगे रहे। इस दौरान उनकी फोटो भी कैमरे में कैद हो गई । 

बुधवार को प्रमुख सचिव होमगार्ड भूपेंद्र सिंह कलेक्ट्रेट सभागार में अफसरों के संग मिलकर विकास कार्यों की समीक्षा कर रहे थे। इस दौरान कुछ अफसर अपने मोबाइल पर उंगलियां थिरकाते रहे। पिछड़ा वर्ग कल्याण अधिकारी अभिशेख कुमार तो मोबाइल पर सुहागरात ऐप डाउनलोड कर रहे थे। जब वो ऐप डाउनलोड कर रहे थे तो उन पर एक कैमरे वाले की नजर पड़ गई और उनकी तस्वीर कैद हो गई। इस मामले को लेकर जब रामपुर के जिलाधिकारी से बात की गई तो उन्होंने कहा कि उनकी जानकारी में भी यह खबर आई है। उन्होंने सीडीओ को पूरे प्रकरण की जांच के निर्देश दे दिए हैं। मामला नगर विकास मंत्री आजम खां के क्षेत्र का है।

Now use One Time Password to file online ITR, I-T Department launches facility ..

NEW DELHI: The Income Tax Department today launched its ambitious One Time Password ( OTP) based e-filing verification system for taxpayers, thereby ending the practice of sending paper acknowledgement to its office in Bengaluru.

The facility can be accessed using internet banking, Aadhaar number, ATM and email.

According to the rules notified in this regard by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) today, any taxpayer, whose income is Rs 5 lakh or below per annum and has no refund claims, he or she can straightaway generate the ‘Electronic Verification Code’ (EVC) for e-filing and validating their Income Tax Return (ITR) through their registered mobile number and e-mail id with the department.

However, this most simplified option, will be subject to certain “restrictions” which will be prepared by the taxman based on the concerned taxpayer’s “risk criteria and profile” in a case-to-case basis.

“This simply means that if the department has some adverse observation against the saidPAN number with income less than Rs 5 lakh, he or she will not be allowed to do the verification directly through their email and mobile number alone and such cases will have to go through the other established procedures in this regard like linkup through Aadhaar database, internet baking or via the ATM,” a senior official explained.

These new measures would completely eliminate the need of sending the paper acknowledgement, called ITR-V, through post to the I-T Central Processing Centre (CPC) based in Bengaluru.

In the other options given, those taxpayers who have internet banking activated can do the e-verification of their ITR.

“The facility will be available on the internet banking website and the verifier (taxpayer) will use this facility using internet banking id, login password and transaction password,” the latest CBDT rules said.

Once logged in on the banking portal, the taxpayer will be sent the EVC to his mobile number provided in the official e-filing web portal of the department which they will put in their ITR for final submission.

New Pension System – Snatching pension like taking away right to live from pensioners.

Government employee when gets retired has only source of income in the form of pension. If pension is denied to pensioners that means something inhuman has been slapped on pensioners. Moreover government jobs are preferred over private jobs only because of Pension. But with the implementation of New Pension Scheme government sector has taken away the right to live from government employees. Bharat Pensioners Samaj in their meeting with 7th CPC gave presentation on the pension and tried to convince the 7th CPC; why pension should be continued and what problems pensioners are facing due to less emoluments in pension.
Quantum of pension
Pension of Govt. employees need to be 65% of last drawn as per 5th CPC study (TECS ). Correspondingly Family Pension to be 45% of last drawn.Fitment benefit exactly same as for employees. BPS urge 7th pay comm. to recommend accordingly to do justice .
Emoluments for Pension
DA of Govt. employees is part of salary. It compensate fall in purchase value of salary. Should be taken into account for calculation of pension as it affects commutation & future DR
Parity in Pension
Pension of pre & post retired SC,HC judges, CAG, Cab. Secy.& Secy. is at par. One rank one pension has been acceded to Defence forces retirees . Others too are citizens of this Country, then why disrimination.BPS Plead for 100% parity to all Pensioners
Full and modified parity will be meaningless unless the actual grades and grade pays implemented to serving employees on revision are taken into consideration. For some categories especially at lower and middle levels, grades higher than those actually recommended by the Commissions were implemented for employees in service. They were not extended for modified and full parity to those who retired prior to revision in the corresponding posts on the pretext that what were implemented were improved grades and grade pays. This resulted in invidious discrimination against and grave injustice to past retirees. The gap in pensions due to this ever widens not only with every subsequent revision but also whenever additional installment of DR and when additional quantum based on advanced age are granted. Parity, full or modified, will be meaningful and confer real benefit on past retirees only when the actual grades and grade pays implemented for serving employees are taken for this purpose. This injustice is happening only when a higher grade or grade pay is given to a certain category after revision. We respectfully submit that certain sections of past pensioners are not able to get justice in the matter of full/modified parity due to the above discriminatory treatment. A Group-B officer, who retired in III CPC scale had been brought down one scale lower w.e.f., 1.1.96 and to Rs.4200/- GP w.e.f., 1.1.2006 whereas a IV CPC Group-B officer got Rs.4600/- GP w.e.f., 1.1.2006 and a V CPC Group-B officer got Rs.4800/- GP in revision. This injustice has occurred to many categories of pre-2006 retirees. We appeal to the Commission to do full justice to all past retirees in the above regard by making suitable recommendations.
Pre-2006 pensioners were given 40% fitment benefit whereas serving employees were given grade pay. This resulted in grave imbalance between pre and post 2006 pensioners. In order to rectify this, notional fixation has to be extended w.e.f., 1.1.2006 to pre 2006 pensioners taking 50% of corresponding grade pay into account so that they will be brought on a common platform with post 2006 pensioners and they will all get equal justice in the next revision as per VII CPC. We urge the Commission to recommend same fitment benefit to employees as well as pensioners to avoid imbalance between past and future pensioners and also same multiplication factor for revision to one and all to ensure equal treatment
No cut off dates
Revision of Pension by Pay comm. is to neutralize inflationary effect . Inflation affects all equally with- out cut off date. Then why cut off dates for implementation of Pay comm. recommendations?
7th CPC recommendations should apply to all pensioners without cut-off dates .All new benefits to apply to present pensioners. Pension of all should rise by equal % to ensure equality
Minimum-Maximum Ratio
Ratio mini- max. emoluments i.e. Basic + DA+IR was down to 1:8 on 1.7.96 prior to Vth CPC implementation. 7CPC must bring it back to that level.
Gulf between highest & lowest paid
Huge gulf between lowest & highest pension need to be narrowed, should not be more than 1:8.Revise pay/pension of top person first, divide it by 8 to calculate minimum.
Any attempt to increase highest & lowest paid ratio in Govt jobs will be disastrous and against the preamble to constitution
Additional old age pension
100 yrs of age for a pensioner is illusionary BPS requests the Hon’ble comm. to review existing dispensation & to recommend 10%upward increase in pension every 5 yrs from 65yrs to 75yrs , 20% every 5yrs from 75- 85yrs & finally increasing pension to 100% at 90 yrs of age. As in the present scenario old age disabilities/diseases set-in right from 60 yrs of age & go on manifesting v. fast needing additional medical & caregiver expenditure.
Pension to be net of Income Tax
Purchase value of pension gets reduced day by day due to steep rise in food, medical & transport cost. Net worth of a pensioner gets considerably reduced at year end compared to the beginning of the year. To enable a pensioner in the evening of life to live with minimum comfort, BPS appeals that Pension may be exempted from Income tax.
DR Merger
BPS requests the pay comm. to recommend merger of Dearness allowance with basic pension whenever it goes 50% or beyond.
Due to inherent flaws in the method of inflation index calculation which is based on WPI. DR is never sufficient to afford 100% neutralization. Whenever DR rise to 50% & above, it results in considerable erosion of financial position of Pensioners
Ex- servicemen status
Defence civilian are paid from defence budget. Are accorded Rank equivalency. BPS urge pay comm. To recommend ex- servicemen status to retd. Defence civilians
BSNL pensioners
BSNL pensioners are governed by Rule 137A of CCS (Pension)Rules 1972. BPS pleads that they be treated at par with C .G. Pensioners for pension fixation.
Family pensioners other than spouse
Family pension is restricted to daughters who become divorcee or widow during the life time of Parents. Social Structure always force a widow or divorced lady to return to parental home. In the absence of parents illiterate ladies have to feed themselves & children by doing menial jobs & living as destitutes. Removal of present restriction will help these ladies to lead honorable life. BPS appeals to hon’ble comm. to consider the issue on humanitarian grounds & to recommend removal of this restriction .
Injustice to those born on Ist jan & on Ist july
Modified FR56(a) requires every one whose date of birth is the first of month to retire from service on the afternoon of last day of preceding month on attaining superannuation age. As a result, those born on Ist of Jan loose pay & pension revision benefits due to pay comm. recommendations and those born on Ist july loose benefit of one increment. They are deprived of equality of status. Hon’ble pay comm. is requested to set right the discrepancy.
Gratuity
We suggest that the gratuity may be calculated on the basis of 26 effective days as against 30 days in a month.
The ceiling of 16.5 times should also be removed.
Health care
Healthcare is not a luxury to be in possession of privileged few. All Govt. pensioners must be issued smart cards for cashless treatment in emergencies in any empanelled/NABH accredited hospital in the country. BPS requests the Honourable commission to recommend accordingly
Quality healthcare
To ensure quality healthcare to pensioners . Periodically upgrade CGHS rates, to keep these compatible to market rates. Exercise rate & quality control on Govt. empanelled hospitals
Hospital Regulatory authority
Constitute hospital regulatory authority to monitor quality & rates of empanelled & NABH /NABL accredited hospitals / Labs to ensure quality healthcare at affordable rates.
Fixed Medical allowance
As is recorded in Para 5 of the minutes of Committee of Secretaries (COS) held on 15.04.2010. OPD cost per CGHS card holder was Rs1369/ PM in 2007-8. With inflation, it is well over Rs 2500/PM now.EPFO baneficiaries already getting RS 2000/PM FMA wef June.013. Hon’ble comm. is requested to recomend Rs 2500/FMA w/o distance restriction, net of Income Tax and allowingDR on it.
Grievance redressal
There should be an effective redressal mechanism with a strict Time line & punitive clause for violation of time line. Any court judgement involving a common policy matter of Pay/Pension should be extended automatically to similarly placed employees/Pensioners without driving every affected person to court of Law.BPS, therefore, appeal to Hon’ble Comm. to recommend accordingly.
Immediate relief
Pending submission of commission’s report & implementation of its recommendations . As an immediate measure to partially mitigate sufferings of pensioners, BPS appeal to the Hon’ble comm. to immediately recommend merger of 50% DR with basic pension & an interim relief of 20% of existing pension.
General
1.Federations of C.G. Pensioners’ associations be granted recognition by Government.2.Pensioners’ representatives should be included in various Committees & Forums wherein issues relating to pensioners’ are discussed & decided.3.SCOVA may be upgraded to JCM level. 4.Scope of Pension Adalats be widened to include Genl.Grievances& Pensioners associations may be permitted to present pensioners cases in Pension Adalats.
