RBI may give payment bank licence to postal department in August: Ravi Shankar Prasad

NEW DELHI: Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said he expects Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to grant payment licence to the proposed Post Bank of India by August.

This will enable the network of 1,54,000 post offices (including 1,30,000 rural post offices) to offer banking services to the masses in the country.
"We expect RBI to give payment bank licence to post (department) in August," Minister of Communications and IT Prasad said.
In last one year, the Department of Post (DoP) has networked 27,215 post offices into one national unit through computers.
The DoP, which has applied for a payment bank licence, has a hybrid model in mind to operate Post Bank of India.
As per RBI guidelines, payment banks would offer a limited range of products such as demand deposits and remittances. They will not be allowed to undertake lending activities and will initially be restricted to holding a maximum balance of Rs 1 lakh per individual customer.
They will be allowed to issue ATM or debit cards as also other prepaid payment instruments, but not credit cards.
According to a source, Prasad has approved hybrid model suggested by Ernst & Young which prepared detailed project report on Post Bank of India (PBI).
"E&Y has come out with three models but suggested preference to a hybrid model. Under which about 600 branches will be directly operated by PBI staff in post office premises and transactions in other parts of the country will be supported by India post staff," a post bank official said.
Post Bank of India is proposed to have its own employees and IT infrastructure. The transaction handled by India Post, employees will be entered in to the server of PBI.
The Department expects revenue of over Rs 550 crore from PBI in first five years.

7th CPC likely to recommend Jan 1, July 1 as Annual Increment days

7th Pay Commission likely to recommend Jan 1, July 1 as Annual Increment issuing days
“On July 1 of each year, annual increments are given for all the Central Government employees. So, tomorrow is the “Increment Day” for all.”
The 6th Pay Commission had introduced the practice of granting annual increment for all on the same day. Until then, increments were implemented for the employees based either on their date of joining or on their promotion dates.
In order to reduce the monthly work burden and for administrative expediency, suggestions from the various departments were presented to the 6th Pay Commission to recommend a single day as increment date. The 6th Pay Commission had recommend 1st July of earch year as increment day. From 01.01.2006 onwards, July 1 was made the day of implementation of annual increments to all CG staff.

Employees who are appointed after January 1st are not eligible for that year’s annual increment on July 1. They qualify for annual increment only the next year. And those who retire on 30th June, they are not eligible for annual increment.
The new increment rule continues to make a huge impact, when employees are joining duty and retire from duty, due to complex CCS (RP) rules on increment. Pointing out the practical difficulties in implementing this scheme, the National Council JCM suggested to the 7th Pay Commission may recommend that two specific dates, Viz January 1st and July 1st.
According to the NC JCM Staff Side suggestion, those recruited/appointed/promoted during the period between 1st January and 30th June will have their increment date on 1st January and those recruited/appointed/promoted between 1st July and 31st December will have it on 1st July next year.
It was also suggested to recommend that those who retire on June 30 and December 31 should be given one increment on the last day of their service.
Reliable sources confirm that, instead of granting 1st July, the 7th Pay Commission may recommend to implement a 2 Day annual increment method.
