NJCM Writes to the FM on deduction of IT on PF

Rahul said relief should be given to employees and not to "thieves". "

NEW DELHI: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday came out in support of the growing demand for a rollback of the Budget proposal to tax withdrawals from the Employees' Provident Fund.

Slamming the NDA government, Rahul asked PM Narendra Modi to withdraw the proposal to give relief to employees and not to "thieves" who would benefit from the 'Fair and Lovely scheme' in the Budget on black money. "What the government is doing with regards to taxing EPF is patently unfair. People work all their lives, EPF is a safety net for them and to destroy it is not something the government should do. I would request the PM to take back the tax on EPF," Rahul told reporters.

Taking a jibe again at finance minister Arun Jaitley's Budget announcement of a single-window compliance scheme on black money, Rahul said relief should be given to employees and not to "thieves". "I had said yesterday that you (Modi) have given the 'fair and lovely scheme' to thieves. Our voters and employees should get relief," he added.

On Wednesday, the Congress vice-president had ridiculed the one-time compliance window announced in the Budget as a 'fair and lovely scheme' and said this was nothing but a move to turn black money white.

Second wife can claim benefits of deceased husband: HC

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday held that the second wife of a Union government employee can claim retirement benefits of the deceased husband. 
A Division Bench of Chief Justice GH Waghela and Justice VK Tahilaramani was hearing the petition filed by the first wife of the deceased, working at the Ammunition Factory in Pune. He had nominated his second wife to receive all retirement benefits in January 2010, after he cancelled the nomination of his first wife after giving her a divorce.
First wife moves HC
On being aggrieved by the order passed by the Central Administrative Tribunal in September 2013, that held that the second wife would receive all the benefits, the first wife moved the High Court.
The court said, “We also have to go by the fact that the first nomination in favour of the first wife was duly cancelled and a fresh nomination was filed separately by the deceased for Death-Cum-Retirement Pension, Provident Fund and Group Insurance benefits in favour of the second wife.”
‘Not possible to ignore nomination’
The court noted that it was not possible to ignore the nomination made by the deceased in favour of the second wife.
The court also observed that approximately six months prior to his death, the deceased had promptly informed his office about his second marriage and about his divorce.
He had also told his office about the nomination filed in favour of the second wife relating to retirement benefits, the Bench said.

Age relaxation for widows

The Ministry of Women and Child Development is considering taking up a proposal for age relaxation for widows for employment in Government and Central PSUs. The Ministry is also considering moving a proposal for tax rebates for single women who are having children. These are at a preliminary stage and formal proposals have not yet been prepared.

This information was given by the Minister of Women and Child Development, Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi in reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.

Officer can’t withdraw resignation once it is accepted, says tribunal

The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) dismissed the plea of an Indian Revenue Service Officer of the 2002 batch seeking to withdraw her resignation from service in 2008 as she is now in a pathetic condition.
This is not the first instance of government officers putting in their papers and later struggling to get back the job.
In 1969, IAS officer Raj Kumar faced a similar fate when his appeal to the Supreme Court to withdraw his resignation after its acceptance by the government was dismissed by the top court. His contention — that the acceptance of the resignation was not communicated to him — was also dismissed by the apex court that said the resignation becomes effective once accepted. The case has now become a reference point for government counsel defending similar cases.
However, in an uncommon case, an IAS officer was able to get back the job even after over six years of resignation as it was later discovered that the resignation could not have been accepted due to a technicality issue. Later, the officer was in the running for the post of cabinet secretary.
In the current case, the lady officer, while working in Shimla, had resigned from service citing “sheer despair and depression” due to her continuous ill health and estranged relationship with her husband.
While the resignation was accepted on January 16, 2008, after a gap of three years, she sought to get her job back on “humanitarian grounds”. She contended that after her resignation, she is now unable to meet the expenses for her treatment and could not look after her little child as she had parted with her husband.
“Hence, in the interest of justice and on humanitarian grounds, her application for withdrawing her resignation is required to be accepted,” the plea said. The principal bench of CAT in Delhi, however, relied on the department of personnel and training’s office memorandum, which provides for relaxation of the time limit of 90 days between the date on which the resignation became effective and the date on which the person is allowed to resume duty.
A revenue service officer who wanted her job back nearly three years after she resigned has been told she cannot withdraw her resignation as it had already been accepted by the government and surpassed the 90 days’ relaxation period.

“Since the applicant, admittedly, applied for withdrawal of her resignation beyond the said permissible period, she cannot seek any relaxation of rules,” the tribunal held.
It also noted the government’s argument that once her resignation was accepted and published in the official gazette — a public document — non service of the same on her does not take away its effect.
On issuing the same, the relationship of an employer and an employee came to an end.

Recovery of wrongful and excess payments made to Government servants – Dopt orders on 2.3.2016

எத்தனை உத்திரவு வந்தும் என்ன பயன் ? 
அத்தனையும் காற்றில் பறக்கவிடும் அதிகாரிகள் முன்பு ..............
F.No.18/03/2015-Estt. (Pay-I)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

New Delhi, the 2nd March, 2016


Sub: Recovery of wrongful / excess payments made to Government servants.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No.18/26/2011-Estt (Pay-I) dated 6th February, 2014 wherein certain instructions have been issued to deal with the issue of recovery of wrongful / excess payments made to Government servants in view of the law declared by Courts, particularly, in the case of Chandi Prasad Uniyal And Ors. vs. State of Uttarakhand And Ors., 2012 AIR SCW 4742, (2012) 8 SCC 417. Para 3(iv) of the OM inter-alia provides that recovery should be made in all cases of overpayment barring few exceptions of extreme hardships.

2. The issue has subsequently come up for consideration before the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of State of Punjab & Ors vs Rafiq Masih (White Washer) etc in CA No.11527 of 2014 (Arising out of SLP(C) No.11684 of 2012) wherein Hon’ble Court on 18.12.2014 decided a bunch of cases in which monetary benefits were given to employees in excess of their entitlement due to unintentional mistakes committed by the concerned competent authorities, in determining the emoluments payable to them, and the employees were not guilty of furnishing any incorrect information / misrepresentation / fraud, which had led the concerned competent authorities to commit the mistake of making the higher payment to the employees. The employees were as innocent as their employers in the wrongful determination of their inflated emoluments. The Hon’ble Supreme Court in its judgment dated 18 th December, 2014 ibid has, inter-alia, observed as under:

“7. Having examined a number of judgments rendered by this Court, we are of the view, that orders passed by the employer seeking recovery of monetary benefits wrongly extended to employees, can only be interfered with, in cases where such recovery would result in a hardship of a nature, which would far outweigh, the equitable balance of the employer’s right to recover. In other words, interference would be called for, only in such cases where, it would be iniquitous to recover the payment made. In order to ascertain the parameters of the above consideration, and the test to be applied, reference needs to be made to situations when this Court exempted employees from such recovery, even in exercise of its jurisdiction under Article 142 of the Constitution of India. Repeated exercise of such power, “for doing complete justice in any cause” would establish that the recovery being effected was iniquitous, and therefore, arbitrary. And accordingly, the interference at the hands of this Court.”

“10. In view of the afore-stated constitutional mandate, equity and good conscience, in the matter of livelihood of the people of this country, has to be the basis of all governmental actions. An action of the State, ordering a recovery from an employee, would be in order, so long as it is not rendered iniquitous to the extent, that the action of recovery would be more unfair, more wrongful,
more improper, and more unwarranted, than the corresponding right of the employer, to recover the amount. Or in other words, till such time as the recovery would have a harsh and arbitrary effect on the employee, it would be permissible in law. Orders passed in given situations repeatedly, even in exercise of the power vested in this Court under Article 142 of the Constitution of India, will disclose the parameters of the realm of an action of recovery (of an excess amount paid to an employee) which would breach the obligations of the State, to citizens of this country, and render the action arbitrary, and therefore, violative of the mandate contained in Article 14 of the Constitution of India.”

3. The issue that was required to be adjudicated by the Hon’ble Supreme Court was whether all the private respondents, against whom an order-of recovery (of the excess amount) has been made, should be exempted in law, from the reimbursement of the same to the employer. For the applicability of the instant order, and the conclusions recorded by them thereinafter, the ingredients depicted in paras 2&3 of the judgment are essentially indispensable.

4. The Hon’ble Supreme Court while observing that it is not possible to postulate all situations of hardship which would govern employees on the issue of recovery, where payments have mistakenly been made by the employer, in excess of their entitlement has summarized the following few situations, wherein recoveries by the employers would be impermissible in law:-
(i) Recovery from employees belonging to Class-III and Class-IV service (or Group ‘C’ and Group ‘D’ service).(ii) Recovery from retired employees, or employees who are due to retire within one year, of the order of recovery.(iii) Recovery from employees, when the excess payment has been made for a period in excess of five years, before the order of recovery is issued.(iv) Recovery in cases where an employee has wrongfully been required to discharge duties of a higher post, and has been paid accordingly, even though he should have rightfully been required to work against an inferior post.(v) In any other case, where the Court arrives at the conclusion, that recovery if made from the employee, would be iniquitous or harsh or arbitrary to such an extent, as would far outweigh the equitable balance of the employer’s right to recover.
5. The matter has, consequently, been examined in consultation with the Department of Expenditure and the Department of Legal Affairs. The Ministries / Departments are advised to deal with the issue of wrongful / excess payments made to Government servants in accordance with above decision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in CA No.11527 of 2014 (arising out of SLP (C) No.11684 of 2012) in State of Punjab and others etc vs Rafiq Masih (White Washer) etc. However, wherever the waiver of recovery in the above-mentioned situations is considered, the same may be allowed with the express approval of Department of Expenditure in terms of this Department’s OM No.18/26/2011-Estt (Pay-I) dated 6th February, 2014.

6. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders are issued with the concurrence of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

7. Hindi version will follow.

மோடி செய்யும் மோசடி

Modi Government rejected the demand for raising of Bonus payment ceiling to Central Govt Employees.

போனஸ் சட்டதிருத்தம் பாராளுமன்றத்தில் வருகிறபோது 2015 லிருந்து ஏன் 2014 இருந்து வழங்கலாமே என பேசி திருத்தம் செய்த மோடி -  இன்று செய்யும் மோடி பாரிர்

Dated the 25th Feb, 2016
Sh.Shiva Gopal Mishra
Secretary (Staff-side)
Joint Consultative Machinery(JCM)
13-C, Ferozshah Road,
New Delhi-110001.

Subject: Raising of bonus payment ceiling to Central Government employees.

I am directed to refer to your L.No. NC-JCM-2015-S.C dated 11.1.2016 on the subject mentioned above and to say that the issue raised therein has been considered.

2. At the outset, till now there has not been a complete parity between Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 and the bonus for Central Government employees in regard to the two different ceilings, one relating to the calculation and the other relating to eligibility. While the calculation ceiling has been the same, the eligibility ceiling has been different and even the revised eligibility ceiling of Rs. 21,000 under the amended Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 is not higher than that in case of the Central Government employees where all non-gazetted employees are eligible for bonus. This being so, a complete parity for the purpose of calculation ceiling of Rs. 7000 p.m., that too, from 1.1.2014, is not justifiable.

3. Most importantly, the 7th Central Pay Commission, which has gone into the  issue of bonus scheme in detail in respepct of the Central Government employees, has felt that instead of bonus, there should be introduced the Performance related Pay (PRP) for all categories of Government employees and this PRP should subsume the existing bonus scheme. 

The Commission has further recommended that since there would be a time log in implementing the PRP, the existing scheme should be reviewed and linked with increased profitability/productivity under the well-defined parameters. The recommendations of the Commission are separately being examined and an appropriate view would be taken as and when the Government decision on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission is  known. Till such time, therefore, it may not be possible to revisit the issue of  calculation ceiling in case of Central Government employees for the purpose of PLB/ad-hoc bonus.

4. This has the approval of the Finance Secretary

Yours Sincerely,
(Ashok Kumar)
Under Secretary to the Gpovt of India

All post offices to be computerised by 2017

India Posts is the largest postal network in the world and provides access to affordable services to all citizens in the country through its vast network. Out of 1.55 lakh post offices, 1.39 lakh are in rural areas and the remaining 15,736 in urban areas.

Over 1.55 lakh post offices in the country would be computerised by next year with an outlay of Rs 4,909 crore under the IT Modernisation Project of the Department of Posts. "At present, the project is at implementation stage and is likely to be completed by 2017," the Economic Survey 2015-16 tabled in Parliament today said.

The project involves computerisation and networking of all post offices. Besides, it envisages networking and computerisation of all mail offices, accounts offices and administrative offices in the country, including approximately 1,30,000 branch post offices in rural areas run by 'gramin dak sevaks'.

A total of 27,736 departmental post offices, including mail offices and administrative offices, have been networked and connected to a data centre, the survey said. "It is the largest single organisation WAN (wide area network) in the country.

Nearly 6.92 crore MGNREGS accounts have been opened in post offices up to December 2015, the survey said. "Towards financial inclusion, the number of post office savings bank (POSB) accounts has increased from 30.86 crore to 33.97 crore," it said.

Total deposits in these accounts and cash certificates stood at Rs 6.53 lakh crore, the survey added.

More than 80 lakh Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana accounts have been opened with a cumulative investment of more than Rs 2,900 crore since the launch of the scheme on January 22, 2015.
