A Readers’concerns of false news about 7th pay commission recommendation

One of our readers  Shri.Jai Kishan Desais‘ concerns of false News items posted in media recently about 7th pay commission recommendations is given below..

“….The Central Government employees are fed up with the false news items that keep coming about 7th Pay Commission which are published in Dailies and blogs and in Social Media recently. Baseless Predictions, groundless assumptions, imaginary calculators, truth less articles and to this extreme… Dubious Projects are also being published about 7th Pay commission recommendation

What is the reason behind these false report keep coming in News Media and Blogs? What is the intention which prompt them to publish these rubbish articles regarding 7th pay commission in their websites?

The intention behind publishing these article is not to give the correct information to central government employees but promoting their websites using the trending news and key words. Among central government employees the attracting word now is 7th pay commission, 7th pay commission pay scale and date of submission of 7th pay commission report.

Recently the articles which have been published in some leading news websites showed their lack of knowledge in the matters of service condition of central government employees and 7th pay commission.

The main focus of these articles are attracting people to their website and to increase the ranking in search results. Merely promoting their websites in search results, they started publishing articles which has no value and bearing misleading facts. The same old story repeated in every articles published

Recently many articles, which are published in websites about the recommendation of 7th pay commission, are nothing more than gimmicks. One article posted in a blog says ….

        7th pay commission recommendatios for …

   > Children education Allowance will be Rs.40 to 50
>  Allowance for disabled children will be Rs.100/-
> Hostel Subsidy will be Rs.300/-

      This News went viral in Social Media and surprisingly many websites posted this information without knowing that it was recommended by Fifth Pay Commission.

Another Example is, in a leading website the story mentioned below was published

“There will be 5 to 6% performance-based increment every year and those who are under-performing could retire by 55 years of age or after 30 years of service, added sources. House Rent Allowance could also be hiked by 10% to 30%”

It seems that those who wrote these articles didn’t know not even the existing rates of allowances paid to central government employees, but they try to impress the central government employees by their prediction about the Pay scales and Allowances of 7th pay commission going to be recommended in future.

It is the readers’ responsibility to identify these websites and to keep themselves aware of it.

Respected Sir,

With due regards, it is submitted for your kind information that the Central Executive Committee meeting of this federation has held on 08th & 09th Sep. 2015 at Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Complex, DRDO Township, Kanchanbagh, Hyderabad and 03 Resolutions have been unanimously adopted by the CEO of the federation & the same are enclosed herewith for your kind consideration and further necessary action please.

This federation is in full hope to get favourable consideration in this regard.

Thanking you in anticipation.

RESOLUTION No. 1: Payment of Gratuity to NPS Beneficiaries

In spite of our strong opposition, the Government has made the New Pension Scheme applicable to all recruits after 01-01-2004. While continuing our opposition to the scheme, BPMS have given several inputs from time to time to ensure that maximum benefit be given to the employees.
As a part of this, the entire bye-laws and other issues pertaining to the formulation of the New Defined Contribution Pension System (popularly known as the NPS) was studies and it was found that as per clarification issued by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Economic Affairs) the NPS is a replacement for only Pension, and thus, other benefits provided to employees like Gratuity remains constant i.e. the employees enrolled under NPS are also eligible for Gratuity as per provision of extant law.

After vigorously pursuing the issue, the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare had issued O.M. No. 38/41/06/P&PW (A) DT. 05-05-2009, with the approval of Cabinet to provide for Invalid Pension, Family Pension, Disability Pension, Extra-Ordinary Family Pension, Retirement Gratuity and Death Gratuity in respect of NPS subscribers on provisional basis.

Consequent thereof, BPMS has been consistently demanding that this “Provisional” basis be converted into a PERMANENT BASIS feature of the NPS. The Government has, now vide DC. No. 1(4)/E-2006 DT. 17-08-2015 of JS (Pers) of the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) circulated a note proposing that the budget for the payment of gratuity be projected from the office of the Controller General of Accounts.

Subsequently, the issue has been earmarked to various Ministries, who in turn have further asked comments from various channels.

The federation having taken stock of the present situation feels that asking comments etc. is not required on a Policy decision and demands that the feature of payment of Gratuity to all NPS subscribers upon Retirement or Death, be made a Permanent feature, without further loss of time.

This resolution is therefore, unanimously adopted at the Central Executive Committee Meeting of the Federation on September 08th, 2015.

RESOLUTION No. 2: Minimum Guaranteed Benefits under NPS

In spite of our strong opposition, the Government has made the New Pension Scheme applicable to all recruits after 01-01-2004. While continuing our opposition to the scheme, BPMS have given several inputs from time to time to ensure that maximum benefit be given to the employees.

Even after a lapse of more than 10 years since the arbitrary implementation of the scheme, the Government has failed to formulate a policy ensuring “Guaranteed Minimum Pension” to the subscribers of the NPS.

Having examine the issue in detailed, BPMS now demands that without any further waste of time, the Government should frame a policy to ensure that irrespective of the financial/market conditions at the time of Retirement and/or Death of the NPS subscriber, he should get a minimum guaranteed pension equivalent to FIFTY PERCENT of his last drawn Basic Pay plus dearness relief for neutralization of price rise.

This Central Executive Committee Meeting of the Federation held at Hyderabad, on September 08th, 2015, hereby RESOLVES, to call upon the Government to frame a policy to ensure that the NPS subscribers receive a minimum guaranteed pension equivalent to FIFTY PERCENT of his last drawn Basic Pay plus dearness relief thereupon at par with Central Government Employees/Pensioners.

RESOLUTION No. 3: One time relaxation & removal of ceiling for Compassionate Appointment

The Government has imposed an arbitrary limit of 5% only for filling up of vacancies on compassionate grounds, subject to several conditions. As a result of this decision, many families are living in distress and the very concept of helping the families of those employees who die in harness, stands defeated due to imposition of this ceiling.

The Federation has been taking up the issue at all levels to relax the ceiling to enable the deserving candidate get employment and thereby provide help to the families of the deceased. Having examine the issue in detailed, BPMS now demands that without any further waste of time, the Government should frame a policy to ensure that as a onetime measure, all existing cases of compassionate appoints are provided suitable employment assistance immediately.

This Central Executive Committee Meeting of the Federation held at Hyderabad, on September 08th , 2015, hereby RESOLVES, to call upon the Government to frame a policy to ensure that one time measure, all existing cases of compassionate appoints are provided suitable employment assistance immediately and to further scrap the artificial ceiling of 5% with immediate effect.

Subject: Grant of Night Duty Allowance on the basis of Actual Salary

Reference: PC of A (Fys) Kolkata letter No. Pay/Tech-II/1206/2015/13, dated 09.09.2015

Respected Sir,

With due regards, it is submitted that the issue of payment of Night Duty Allowance based on actual salary, instead of notional pay of Rs.2200/- was resolved vide MOD ID No. 17(4)/2012/D(Civ-II), Dated 08.05.2015 in compliance of Contempt Petition (CP No. 200/2014 Shri Arvind Girija Singh & Ors versus UOI & Ors.) based on the CAT Jodhpur directions in CA No 34/2008 dated 5.11.2009 and subsequent ratifications by Hon’ble High Court and Supreme Court of India.

We are surprised to see the PC of A (Fys) letter cited under reference whereby ceiling for entitlement of Night Duty Allowance has been revised to Rs. 12380/- pay in Pay Band. We have strong objection on the issuance of this letter because PC of A (Fys) is not the competent authority to revise the ceiling of entitlement for NDA unilaterally as the original order has been issued by Ministry of Defence in consultation with Min of Finance, DoP&T, Def (Finance) and if there was any doubt regarding eligibility, PC of A (Fys) should have asked for clarification from the competent authorities through prescribed channels.

Further, all the court cases regarding revision of night duty allowance was related to the notional ceiling of Rs. 2200/- per month and this issue was resolved by ordering the NDA on the actual salary and nowhere court further fixed any real or notional ceiling. Even it has been already clarified in the earlier order which states that entitlement ceiling of Rs. 2200/- is not applicable to existing categories who are getting NDA. Prior to implementation of recommendations of 6th CPC, IEs / NIEs / NGOs upto Assistant Foreman (Technical) was entitled for Night Duty Allowance being a non-gazetted supervisory staff but now the post of Assistant Foreman is merged with JWM which is a gazetted supervisory post in OFB. Hence, all the Industrial / Non-Industrial & Non – Gazetted Supervisory staff are entitled for NDA on the basis of actual salary.

Therefore, you are requested to intervene into the matter so that all IEs/NIEs/NGOs may get the NDA as per actual salary in compliance with the court pronouncements in letter and spirit.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

Sub: Verification of qualifying service after 18 years service and 5 years before retirement.
It has been observed by this Department that processing of pension cases of the employees retiring from the government service quite often get delayed on account of the issues relating to verification of service from time to time by the concerned authorities during the service of the concerned employee. Although detailed instructions regarding verification of service have been issued by Department of Personnel & Training and by this Department, these instructions are not meticulously adhered to resulting in delay in sanctioning of retirement benefit of the employees.

Government to announce family pension to employees under New Pension Scheme

Family Pension for NPS Employees – A report states that between April 1994 and April 2004, more than 50 lakh youths joined Government Services. However, the same dropped to around 33 Lakhs after April 2004. Experts blame the Governments’ decision to abolish pension for this, which forced the youths to move towards the corporate sector.
The 33 lakh Central and State Government employees who have joined after 2004, may soon have a reason to rejoice. The Government is seriously considering to offer Family Pension for NPS Employees who have joined after 2004. Reliable sources have said that the 7th Pay Commission has recommended the same. The State Governments’ have been asked to submit their reports by the end of December, and after due approval it is expected that the Pension Scheme will come into effect by 1, January 2016.

7th Central Pay Commission – Regularisation of Retirement Age?

As the recommendation and implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission is eagerly awaited by the central government employees, some points in the recommendations are slightly leaking in..It may not be authentically correct.
According to information from various sources, the Pay Commission may fix the minimum basic pay at Rs. 15000/- and it is assumed that a huge increase in the salaries of the employees cannot be expected. The term of the commission was extended for four months and they are in full swing giving final touches to the report to be submitted to the central government by the end of December 2015.
One more recommendation which is said to be an important one, is the regularisation of retirement age for the Central Government Employees. The Commission may recommend that an employee should retire after completing 33 years of service or at the age of 60 whichever comes first. For instance, if an employee joins a central government establishment at the age of 23, his retirement age will be 56. If this recommendation is true, it will definitely create panic among  the employees and it will not be a wise decision by the pay commission. All Federations and Associations will strongly oppose these type of recommendations…
The 6th CPC had brought various changes in the Pay Structures and introduced Grade Pay. There was a moderate increase in the Basic Pay, House Rent Allowance and re-imbursement of tuition fees was also introduced. The minimum basic pay was Rs.5200+Grade Pay 1800=Rs. 7000/- while it was Rs. 2650/- in the 5th CPC.
Further, it is also said that, the 7th CPC may abolish the 6th CPC’s Pay Scales and may bring back the old pay scales. The overall increase in the Pay Scale will be around 15% to 20%
Let us wait and see for the ultimate results…!

Sir/ Madam,
I am directed to refer to the above cited subject and (to say that certain concessions were granted to Army Postal Service (APS) officials in respect of taking Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) for promotion to the inspector (Posts). These concessions were later withdrawn vide this Directorate letter of even number dated 5.9.2013 except for the concession of two additional chances for appearing in inspector (Posts) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination. As the withdrawal of the concessions was adversely affecting the morale of the personnel serving in the APS and also causing manpower crunch in APS, the matter has since been reviewed and it has been decided that the following concessions will be allowed to the APS candidates for appearing/ passing the inspector (Posts) Examination:-

(i) APS candidates may be granted ‘Qualified Status’ in case they qualify the inspector Posts examination provided they secure aggregate marks not less than 90% of the total marks secured by the last candidate. ‘selected on merit’ in their parent Circle (in civil side). if such qualified APS candidates have completed three year service as Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) on the date of examination, they will be brought on the approved lists of inspector Posts below all candidates (including those belonging to SC/ST). Their position in the approved list inter-se will be determined by the order of merit in the departmental examination.

(ii) ‘Qualified Status’ APS candidates, who have not completed three years as Junior Commissioned Officer on the date of examination, will be brought on the approved lists of inspector Posts below all candidates (including those belonging to SC/ST) who have been declared successful in the last examination-held before the date on which they complete three year service as JCO. Their position in the approved list inter-se will be determined by the dates on which they complete three year service as JCO.

(iii) A qualified APS candidate, who leaves the APS before completing three years service as JCO will not be eligible to be placed on the approved list.

(iv), Age relaxation of 05 years may be given to APS candidates for appearing in Inspector (Posts) Limited Departmental Competitive Examination. 

This issues with the approval Director General (Posts).

Ajai Shukla: After OROP, instability


Ajai Shukla

The still unresolved, "one rank, one pension" (OROP) agitation has exacerbated the lack of trust between the military, on the one hand, and politicians and bureaucrats, on the other. In a double defeat for the government, it will pay out at least Rs 18,000-22,000 crore for a settlement, but still leave most ex-servicemen grumbling. That is because the government has misunderstood the nature of the OROP agitation: it is less a demand for money than an expression of outrage at being discriminated against vis-à-vis the cordially disliked Indian Administrative Service(IAS). Many veterans have told me they would accept thestatus quo on pensions, provided OROP benefits are also withdrawn from the IAS and the Indian Foreign Service (IFS).
