Huge demand on Four Wheelers - after 7th CPC Recommendations has begun to emerge!

After the 6th Pay commission was implemented in August 2008, the car sales to government employees almost increased from 8 to 10 times of sales during the Fiscal Year 2008 to 2012.
Most probably 7th Pay Commission submit the report during the month October 2015 which will be implemented from January 2016.  After implementing the 7th Pay Commission to Central Government Employees there will be huge demand on Four Wheeler in the Fiscal Year 2016-17. Many employees are already started to collect the details from the banks.

7th Pay Commission Recommendations has begun to emerge!

“It doesn’t come as a surprise that even bits and morsels of information about the recommendations, which is being eagerly expected by nearly 50 lakh employees and pensioners, make headlines.”

The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission have slowly started to make their way to the media in the form of unconfirmed news. The information that was being extensively discussed by all for more than a week now has finally made it to the websites yesterday.

It has now been confirmed that the 7th Pay Commission will submit is report to the Government next month. With the report being given a final shape, certain pieces of information have already started to hit the media. Some of the workable recommendations of the commission are out.

In 2006, a number of such unconfirmed reports surfaced, when the 6th Pay Commission report was being prepared, because the report was not submitted to the government on time. Due to the delay, there was tremendous curiosity to find out what the report contained. This led to a lot of rumors. Since the internet didn’t become that popular in those days, those rumors were hard to believe. Most of them were circulated by word of mouth.

Now, despite the fact that there are plenty of news sources, since it has become possible to trace the point of origin of the information, such rumors have reduced. This time around, the information was given by the leaders of Federations. Yet, one can neither completely accept them as true, nor dismiss them as entirely false.

Since the government and the major employees federations have their own websites, it has become possible for the information to spread to the corners of the world within minutes. Also, retracts and denials too have become equally fast, thus killing the rumours immediately. With a number of other individual websites and blogs too covering the news about Central Government employees, the readers are now able to differentiate between news and rumours.

There is nothing surprising or shocking in the news reports that have now surfaced. A minimum basic pay of Rs.21,000 is an expected one. The recently released Kerala Pay Commission too has recommended the minimum wage at Rs.17,000 (from 01.01.2014 onwards). The National Council has demanded that it be Rs.26,000 per month.

It is a well known fact that the Grade Pay System had been a source of constant irritation. The dual Hierarchy System (Promotional hierarchy and Grade Pay hierarchy) will come to an end. There will not be any more confusion about the promotions that come through MACP.

The Multiplication Factor of 2.86 does sound very low. NC JCM had pressurized the Pay Commission to fix it at 3.7. The 6th Pay Commission had fixed it at 1.86, and also given Grade Pay. Since the DA now stands at 125% (including July 2015 and January 2016), this could end up being substantial.

Expected Date for Submission of 7th CPC Report

Expected Date for Submission of 7th Pay Commission Report and its important recommendations – Sources

As the 7th pay Commission itself declared that the work of compilation and finalization of the report is underway, it is the time for expecting the date on which the report will be submitted after it is finalized. The stipulated time for submitting the report is 18 months from the date of notification issued. In a resolution dated 28th February, 2014, Government of India has appointed the Seventh Central Pay Commission comprising Justice Shri Ashok Kumar Mathur as Chairman, Shri Vivek Rae as full time Member, Dr. Ratin Roy as part time Member and Smt. Meena Agarwal as Secretary

The 7th pay commission has been given 18 months’ time from date of its constitution to make its recommendation. Hence the tentative date for submission of Report will be 30th August 2015.

The sources close to the 7th Pay Commission, on the condition of anonymity told that the 7th pay Commission Report is almost finalized and the Report is expected to be submitted on or before 14th August 2015. The Leaders representing one of the railway federations in the staff side also confirmed this news.

According to the Sources the important Points of the Pay Commission’s Recommendations are ..
1. There will be no running Pay band and Grade Pay System 
2. The uniform multiplication factor for arriving revised pay will be 2.86 
3. The Pay scales will be open ended to avoid stagnation in the scales 
4. The Minimum Pay will be Rs. 21000 
5. The CCA will be separated into two components as it was in the fifth CPC 
6. Percentage of HRA will remain same. 
7. The Criteria for retirement age will be either completion of 33 Years of service or at the age of 60 Years whichever is earlier. 
8. CGEGIS Insurance Coverage and Monthly premium will be increased 
9. Classification of Posts will be Modified 
10. The 7th Pay Commission recommendation will be implemented with effects from 1.1.2016.
Further ,the sources told that the Committee of Secretaries will be appointed to study the report and analyze the financial implications upon implementation of 7th pay commission recommendation. An ally of NCJCM Staff Side told that the Staff Side also will be invited by the third week of September 2015 by this Committee before giving its final nod for approval for this Recommendation.

NC JCM Staff Side suggested to 7th CPC on HRA for CG Employees

NC JCM Staff Side suggested to 7th Pay Commission on House Rent Allowance for CG Employees
National Council JCM Staff Side given suggestion on House Rent Allowance for Central Government employees as under…
The present scheme of HRA is based on the recommendation of the 6th CPC, which is as follows:

HRA suggestion by NC JCM
Government should take houses on long lease and make residential accommodation available to its employees on payment of 10% of their pay.
We reproduce hereunder the recommendation made by the third Central Pay Commission in the matter of grant of house rent allowance. (Para 29 Part I. Vol. IV.Chapter 56), which would be the best if implemented even today. While we find it difficult to accept the kind of parity suggested above, we are aware of the acute problem caused by the lack of adequate government housing and by the inadequate government housing and by the inadequacy of the existing rates of house rent allowance and recommend as follows:-
(ii) Government should lay down appropriate house rent allowance rates in different cities and towns based not on population criteria, but on an actual assessment of the prevailing levels of rent in different cities and towns. Alternatively, certain notional rents for different types of accommodation meant for officers and personnel of specified pay groups should be laid down for particular cities after studying the actual conditions in that city. The difference between the actual rent paid and 10% of pay should be reimbursed subject to a maximum of the difference between the notional rent and 10% of the pay. The existing norms in regard to entitlement of accommodation, size of rooms etc. could, if necessary, be reduced depending on the housing situation and the norms usually adopted by different income groups in renting accommodation in the various cities. Such notional rents should, to start with, be applied to all stations falling under the description of classified cities for purposes of House Rent Allowance, Additions could also be made to the list later on by including other cities deserving similar treatment.
(iii) Till the Government is able to make arrangements recommended in the preceding sub-paragraphs, the rates of HRA should be as follows:-
The rates prescribed by the 6th CPC, though an improvement over its predecessor Commission, it has not improved the situation. The real estate value throughout the country has skyrocketed and owning an accommodation within the city/Municipal limit has become impossible for Government employees. There is not a single town/village where the real estate boom has remained unaffected. The phenomenal increase in the value of land has naturally impacted the rent, one is to pay on leasing house/flat. The house rent allowance does not bear even a small percentage of the rent. The 7th CPC may recommend to the Government to act upon the suggestion made by the 3rd CPC without any further delay. Pending action on the part of the Government, the Commission may suggest the following rates of House Rent allowance;The above said recommendations is still to be acted upon by the Government and the transitory provisions suggested by them i.e. payment of allowances at a pre-determined rate on the basis of classification made of the cities depending upon the population continue to be employed. The non-implementation of the above recommendation of the third CPC , has without exception, gone to depress the wage of all sections of Central Government employees as they are perforce to spend more than what they receive as HRA for obtaining and retaining the accommodation.

            Department of Posts,
            Dak Bhawan, New Delhi – 110001
Sub: -   Irregular and arbitrary allotment of one seat in the JCM Departmental Council to BPEF – regarding.
Ref: -   Your letter No. 06/02/2002-SR (Vol.II) dated 24th June,2015 addressed to Secretary General, BPEF, calling for nomination to JCM Departmental Council.
Your kind attention is invited to the above referred letter sent by your office, addressed to Secretary General, BPEF, calling for nomination to JCM Departmental Council, Department of Posts. While expressing our strong protest against the unilateral decision of the Department to allot one seat to a BPEF affiliated Association, we would like to bring the following facts to your notice.
(a)JCM Scheme came into existence by a declaration of joint intent which is signed by all participating organisation and the Government. It is an agreement between the Government and Staff side. It is applicable to only those organizations which are signatories to the joint intent. As such, allocation of one seat to an organisation (BPEF) which is not a part of JCM scheme is highly irregular, arbitrary and illegal.
(b)As per the JCM Scheme – “When there has been a recognised Federation or Federations representing broadly and adequately all the categories of employees of a Department only that Federation or Federations will be recognised for the purpose of JCM”. In the last membership verification conducted by the Department the total percentage of membership of BPEF was only 4%. Only two Associations affiliated to BPEF, representing only two categories of employees are recognised. BPEF affiliated Associations are not recognised in all other categories of postal employees which constitute majority of the employees.
(c)Considering the above facts mentioned in para (C), the Department has not granted recognition to the BPEF. Calling for nomination to the JCM Departmental Council from an unrecognised
Federation amounts to violation of orders issued by DOP&T on the JCM Scheme and also the rules under the CCS (RSA) Rules 1993. An unrecognized Federation which is not a party of the joint intent of JCM Scheme, cannot nominate any member to the JCM Departmental Council The decision of the Department to allot the seat to BPEF is against the guiding principles  and spirit of JCM Scheme.
       (d)As per the Terms and conditions under which service Associations are recognised under the CCS (RSA) Rules 1993, a service Association shall cease to be affiliated to any Federation, if such Federation is not recognised by Government. Hence there is no question of BPEF which is an unrecognized Federation, nominating a member from an affiliated Association. There cannot be an affiliated Association to an unrecognized Federation.
      (e)As per the JCM scheme any alterations, modifications or amendment to the scheme including the allocation of seats can be made only by mutual agreement of the Staff side and Government. In the joint intent signed by staff side and government, the distribution of seats in the JCM are made as per mutual agreement reached. It is clearly stated that – “Both the parties are agreed that any provision of this declaration or of the scheme could be amended by mutual agreement only”. Hence the present decision of the Department to include an unrecognized Federation under the purview of JCM scheme violates the fundamental principles of the JCM scheme.
(f)Distribution of seats in the JCM Departmental Council to the recognised Federations is decided in consultation with the staff side. As such any change or increase in the distribution of seats can be made in consultation with the existing staff side members including Leader and Secretary of the staff side.
            In view of the above, we request you to review the entire case and withdraw the decision to grant one seat in the JCM Departmental Council to BPEF.
            Expecting immediate action,
Yours faithfully,

I hope, you will take keen interest in resolution of the problems, submitted through our aganeda as well as Charter of Demands at an earliest to keep industrial peace in the country.

Grant of increment for those who have completed one year on the day of superannuation - NC JCM Staff Side writes to the Secretary of Dopt

 "The issue was discussed several occasions, but was not agreed upon by the Official Side. The Official Side took the stand that the completion of the stipulated one year being the day on which the official retires, he cannot be granted one increment for having completed one year only the next day and for doing so, one has to be on duty. The fact that the official has completed the requisite one year for earning an increment was unfortunately glossed over. "

Dear Sir,
Sub: Grant of increment for those who have completed one year on the day of superannuation
We solicit your kind reference to item No.14 of the 43rd Meeting of the National Council, demanding grant of one increment in the case of those persons who complete one year on the day of their superannuation. The issue was discussed several occasions, but was not agreed upon by the Official Side. The Official Side took the stand that the completion of the stipulated one year being the day on which the official retires, he cannot be granted one increment for having completed one year only the next day and for doing so, one has to be on duty. The fact that the official has completed the requisite one year for earning an increment was unfortunately glossed over. The Staff Side was also told later that the case filed by one of the officials in the Central Administrative Tribunal against denial of increment was turned by the Court. No doubt, grant of increment in a deserving case is an executive decision and no court will be able to compel the Executive to exercise their powers in a particular manner. In fact, the Government ought to have appreciated the fact that the demand is on justified ground and the technicalities should not have come in the way to deny justice.
We now send you a copy of the GO issued by the Government of Tamilnadu, granting one increment on the date of superannuation in the case of those personnel who have completed one year of service. In the light of the decision of the Government of India that the grant of increment can be resorted to even in the case of a person who has completed at least six months in order to bring in uniformity in the date of increment of all Government employees as per the recommendation of the 6th CPC, earlier stand of the Official Side is not at all tenable. Since there had been no meeting of the National Council for the past five years, this matter could not be pursued through discussions.
We request you to kindly consider the matter afresh, especially in the background of the GO. of the Government of Tamilnadu and issue orders to settle the justified demand.
Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
Secretary(Staff Side)
Encl: As above ABSTRACT
Tamil Nadu Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2009 – Grant of notional increment to Government Servants who retires on superannuation on the preceding day of increment due date – Orders – Issued.
Dated: 31.12.2014
Thiruvalluvar Aandu, 2045.
1. G.O.Ms.No.234, Finance (PC) Department, dated: 1-6-2009. 
2. G.O.Ms.No.123, Finance (PC) Department, dated: 10-4-2012.
As per the provisions under Fundamental Rules 26 (a), the annual increments of the Government Servants are regulated in four quarters viz. 15th January, 15th April, 1st July and 1st October. However, there is no provision in the Fundamental Rules to sanction annual increments in the case of the Government Servants who have rendered one full year of service and retires on superannuation on the last date of completion of one year and their increment due date falls on the next day of superannuation. As such an anomalous situation arises in the case of those Government Servants who retires on the 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December, as the case may be, inspite of the fact that they haVe completed one full year of service which are countable for increment as per Fundamental Rules 26(a), (b), (bb), (c) and (d) as the case may be, and on the date ‘of retirement.
2) The above issue was-brought to the notice of Pay Grievance Redressal Cell constituted in the Government Order second read above by several Employees Association for due rectification. The Pay Grievance Redressal Cell, among others, has recommended that “when date of increment of a Government Servant falls due on the day following superannuation on completion of one full year of service, such service may be considered for the benefit of a notional increment purely for the purpose of pensionary benefits and not for any other purpose. Such concession may be made applicable prospectively”.
3) After careful consideration, the Government have decided to accept the above recommendation of Pay Grievance Redressal Cell. Accordingly, the Government direct that a Government Servant whose increment falls due on the day following superannuation, on completion of one full year of service which are countable for increment under Fundamental Rules 26, be sanctioned with one notional increment at the rate as described under rule 6 of Tamil Nadu Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2009, purely for the purpose of pensionery benefits and not for any other purpose. The above concession of sanction of notional increment shall take prospective effect from the date of issue of this order.
4) Necessary amendment to the Fundamental Rules shall be issued by Personnel and Administrative Reforms Department separately.

2590 post offices have core banking facilities:Prasad

AGARTALA: Even as the Reserve Bank of India is expected to give Department of Posts (DoP) payment bank licence by September, there are 2,590 post offices in the country with core banking facilities, Communication and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Sunday. 
"I want to change the profile of the post office by extending its service to the poorer section of the people. We have applied for a payment bank licence with the RBI to bring a large section of unbanked populace of the country into the banking space," the Union Minister said. 
There were only 236 post offices under core banking facilities, but after the current NDA government came to power last year, 2,590 post offices have now core banking facilities, he said.
The minister today dedicated the core banking service of Agartala Post Office and laid the foundation stone for Dimapur Mukhya Dak Ghar in Nagaland here by remote control. 
At present, post offices offer savings bank accounts, but cannot have credit or overdraft facilities. 
Under payment banking licence an entity would be allowed to accept deposits, facilitate remittances and payments, but cannot lend. 
"I want Indian post offices to have all modern and digital facilities. I want a person working at a metropolitan city get the facility to remit money to his mother through the post office. I want women working in village community centres get medical facilities by digitally linking them with good doctors," he said. 
The minister said the Centre wants to convert the country into a Digital India where a poor person can use smartphones and avail all modern facilities. 
"At present there are 98 crore mobile phones, which will cross 100 crore soon and there are 30 crore internet connections in the country, which will also increase with the growing demand," Prasad said adding, all gram panchayats in the country would be connected with optical fibre connections.
