Rahul hits out at Modi for treating govt employees, workers with a stick

Rahul Gandhi said the Prime Minister thinks that Indian government employees and workers are shirkers as he lambasted the government for attempting to dilute labour laws.
“Like we fought for the rights of farmers, we will fight for the cause of the workers and government employees and stand with them and would not retreat an inch. We will fight BJP, Modi and RSS,” he said amid applause at the 31st Plenary Session of INTUC, the trade union wing of the Congress.
“Prime Minister thinks that the government employees and workers of India are dishonest, work shirkers and could be made to work only by wielding a lathi. He feels labour laws have to be weakened and workers disciplined so that they are forced to work. He wants to bring them on their knees. If you look at the new laws being made in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Haryana, it will become clear that Modi has started a big assault on workers,” he added.
Gandhi said, “I do not agree that our employee or worker is either shirker or indisciplined… Our worker is scared. He is scared of his future, the future of his children. The worker is scared whether the job he has today will be there tomorrow. Will the factory gate open for him tomorrow.”
Insisting that the government should become “judge” between the labourers and the industry and “not advocate” of industry, he told the Prime Minister that if he is able to remove fear from the mind of the workers then India would be able to surpass China in no time.
Rahul also said the PM was merely creating buzzwords. “It started with ‘achche din’, then came ‘Swachch Bharat’, ‘Smart Cities’, ‘Make in India’, ‘Digital India’ and now ‘Accessible India’. God knows which jumla will come out next.”
Rahul Gandhi was accompanied by former prime minister Manmohan Singh and several Congress leaders.

Installation of ATMs at Identified Post offices - Operational Hand Book on ATM

It  has been intimated by Postal Directorate that the concerned stake holders are actively working to complete the ATM installation process as per the DoP schedule but most of the ATM locations are not aware of the instructions relating to ATM implementation process and interim cash management process. Some of the locations are not providing the ATM fit currency notes to the AGS vendor for loading into the ATM machines for enabling the cash live. This is resulting in undue delay in completion of the ATMs rollout.     
           To make the all concerned aware of the ATM Implementation process, Directorate has ordered to   circulate the hand book  to all the P.Os where ATM are going to be installed.

Seventh Pay Commission: Govt to examine minimum pay

            New Delhi: The central government is set to examine the minimum pay, which was recommended by the Seventh pay commission.
           The Implementation cell of the Seventh pay commission recommendation in Finance Ministry is working hard to examine the minimum pay as the pay commission increased the pay gap between the minimum and maximum from existing 1:12 to 1: 13.8.
The government data shows that the pay panel recommended the lowest increase in basic pay i.e. 14.27 per cent since independence.
             Sources in the Finance ministry said there appears to be a pattern of minimum pay not only a particular sector, but other segments are required to study as employees’s body and Trade Unions expressed resentment over the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission and demanded at least 40% hike in the pay of various categories of government employees.
“We found through government documentation, that are widely available, the preponderance of the evidence strongly supports the seventh pay commission report complexity.” said sources.
“But, that Implementation cell is concentrated as well on a range of different sectors like allowances, advances and risk-hardship matrix. So we need to look at those particular sections very closely.” he added.
The lowest paid central government employees will actually take home the lower salary than what they are currently drawing after acceptance of the Seventh Pay Commission report without modification.
A lowest paid central government employee, who was appointed in the Grade Pay of Rs 1800 in the end of 2015 in Group A city and he is residing in government- quarter. His will get net pay January 2016 Rs.16,370 in existing pay rules.
Basic Pay = Pay Band Rs 5200 + Grade Pay Rs 1800=   Rs 7000 +
Expected DA of 125%,                                                    Rs 8750 +
Transport Allowance with DA                                           Rs.1350
Gross Pay                                                             =         Rs. 17100

Deductions: NPS 10% of basic Pay = Rs 700 +
CGEGIS                                            Rs 30
Total                                                  = 730,                            Net Pay =17,100 – 730 = 16370
The same employee will get net pay in January 2016 under the Seventh Pay Commission recommendation without modification, Basic Pay Rs 18,000 – NPS 10% of basic Pay Rs 1800 – CGEGIS Rs 1500 = Rs 14,700. Accordingly, he will be a loser of Rs 1,670.
A minimum pay of Rs 18,000 per month and a maximum of Rs 2.5 lakh per month has been recommended by the Seventh pay commission, headed by Justice A K Mathur, that presented its 900-page report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on November 19.
The The Seventh Pay Commission recommended raise in basic pay, a key segment that determines several allowances, is only 14.27 per cent – the lowest in 70 years. The previous commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike, which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.
The Commission recommended a 23.55 per cent increase in the cumulative earnings of central government employees.
The figure of 23.55 per cent covers the increases in pay and allowances.
The overall increase in pay and allowances and pensions over the business-as-usual scenario will be 23.55 per cent, the report said.

Rules regarding quoting of PAN for specified transactions amended.

The Government is committed to curbing the circulation of black money and widening of tax base. To collect information of certain types of transactions from third parties in a non-intrusive manner, the Income-tax Rules require quoting of Permanent Account Number (PAN) where the transactions exceed a specified limit. Persons who do not hold PAN are required to fill a form and furnish any one of the specified documents to establish their identity.
              One of the recommendations of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Black Money was that quoting of PAN should be made mandatory for all sales and purchases of goods and services where the payment exceeds Rs.1 lakh. Accepting this recommendation, the Finance Minister made an announcement to this effect in his Budget Speech. The Government has since received numerous representations from various quarters regarding the burden of compliance this proposal would entail. Considering the representations, it has been decided that quoting of PAN will be required for transactions of an amount exceeding Rs.2 lakh regardless of the mode of payment.

Pay Commission implementation gazette to be issued in April 

The gazette to put into effect the Seventh pay commission recommendation will be issued in April before the announcement of West Bengal, Assam, Kerala and Tamil Nadu states assemblies’ election in May 2016, which will benefit 50 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners including dependents, Sources of Finance Ministry said Sunday.

Banks cannot attach Pension account to recover loan dues : Madras HC

While allowing a Writ Petition filed by Mrs. A. Muthuiruvakkal of Nagercoil in Kanyakumari district the Madras High Court Madurai Bench of Justice K. Ravichandrabaabu held that a Savings Bank Account maintained primarily for the purpose of depositing monthly pension amount could not be attached by a bank just because the account holder had defaulted repayment of a loan availed from them. The petitioner had challenged an order passed by the State Bank of India on August 13 preventing her from operating the pension account for recovering the outstanding loan amount.

          The counsel for the petitioner Mr.P.Thirumahilmaran submitted that the bank had deducted about Rs.14,681 from the petitioner’s pension account after preventing her from operating the account. It was argued on behalf of the petitioner that putting an S.B. account on hold by passing such an order was impermissible in law as pension amount cannot be attached or recovered for the purpose of recovery of any outstanding amount payable by the petitioner. In support of such contention, the petitioner relied on a decision of the Supreme Court reported in Radhey Shyam Gupta Vs. Punjab National Bank and another wherein the Apex Court had criticized the Rajasthan High Court for ordering attachment of even Fixed Deposits without giving attention to the fact that the loan defaulter in that case had actually converted his pension and gratuity amount into fixed deposits. The bank on its part submitted that as there is outstanding dues to the tune of Rs. 2,18,09,971/- and that they were left with no other option except to pass the impugned order. After hearing the rival submissions the court concurred with arguments of the counsel for the petitioner and observed that “if there is any outstanding due payable by the petitioner, it is for the respondent bank to work out its remedy in the manner known to and permissible by law before the appropriate forum. Without doing so, resorting to attach the pension amount by way of passing the impugned order is impermissible.” The judge set aside the bank’s order and directed it to permit the petitioner to operate the account without any hindrance.

For Petitioner : Mr.P.Thirumahilmaran

For R.l : Mr.S.Sethuraman

For R.2 to 5 : No appearance


The petitioner is aggrieved against the order of the first respondent dated 13.08.2015 whereby, her Saving Bank Account No.11319810470 dealing only in respect of her pension amount was put
on hold for the purpose of recovery of an outstanding of loan amount.

2. Heard the learned Counsel appearing for the petitioner and the learned Standing Counsel appearing for the respondents and perused the materials placed before this Court.

3. It is the contention of the learned Counsel appearing for the petitioner that the present impugned order passed is in effect attaching the pension amount of the petitioner lying in S.B.Account No.11319810470 by putting such an account on hold, which is impermissible in limb as pension amount cannot be attached or recovered for the purpose of recovery of any outstanding amount payable by time petitioner. In support of such contention, the learned Counsel relied on a decision of the Supreme Court reported in (2009) 1 SCC 376', Radhey Shyam Gupta vs. Punjab National Bank and another.

4. The learned Counsel for the respondents though. admitted. that time said. Saving' Bank .Account
which was put on hold in the impugned order is in respect of the amount only dealing with the pension of the petitioner, has however submitted that as there is a outstanding dues to the tune of Rs.
2,18,09,97l/- as on 03.08.2015, the respondents bank has left ‘with no other option. except to pass the
present impugned order.

5. The question now that arises for consideration before this Court is as to whether the respondent bank is justified in attaching the pension amount of the petitioner by passing the present impugned order for realization of the outstanding dues, as claimed by the respondent bank.

6. It is well settled that attachment of pension amount cannot be made for realization of any outstanding. In this aspect, the above decision of the Apex Court relied on by the learned Counsel
appearing for the petitioner can be usefully quoted, wherein, in paragraph. No.33, time Supreme Court has observed that the pension and gratuity amount should not attached under the provision of the Code of Civil Procedure. Paragraph No.33 reads as follows:-

“33. However, we are also of the ‘view that having regard to proviso (g) to Section 60(1) of the Code, the High Court committed a jurisdictional error in directing that a portion. of time decretal amount; be satisfied frmn the fixed deposit receipts of the appellant held fur the Bank. The High. Court also erred in placing the onus on the appellant to produce time Matador in question for being auctioned for recovery of the decretal dues. In other words, the High Court erred in altering the decree of the trial Court in it revisional jurisdiction, particularly, when the pension and gratuity of the appellant, which had been converted into fixed deposits, could not be attached. under the provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure. The decision inJyothi Chit Fund case has been considerably watered down by later decision which have been indicated in para 22 hereinbefore and it ‘has been held that gratuity payable would not be liable to attachment for satisfaction of a court decree in view of proviso (g) to Section 60(1) of the Code.”

7. Therefore, if there is any outstanding due payable by the petitioner, it is for the respondents bank to work out their remedy to recover the said amount, in the manner known to and permissible by law, before the appropriate forum. Without doing so, resorting' to attach time pension amount by way of passing the impugned order is impermissible.

8. Accordingly, this wait petition is allowed and time impugned order is set aside. Consequently, the respondent bank is directed to permit the petitioner to operate the said Saving Bank Account referred. to above, without any hindrance. No costs. Consequently, connected miscellaneous petition is closed.
