Reservation for SC/ST and OBC

Reservation for SC/ST and OBC
Article 16(4) of the Constitution enables provision of reservation to Backward Class of citizens, who are not adequately represented in the State. Reservation is provided to Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs) and Other Backward Classes (OBCs) through executive instructions issued from time to time, which has force of law, as held by the Supreme Court in Indira Sawhney case.
As per extant instructions, reservation is provided to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes at the rate of 15%, 7.5% and 27%, respectively, in case of direct recruitment on all-India basis by open competition. In case of direct recruitment on all-India basis otherwise than by open competition, the percentage fixed is 16.66%, 7.5% and 25.84%, respectively.
As per information received from 71 Ministries/Departments, the representation of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes in the posts and services under the Central Government as on 01.01.2014 is 17.35%, 8.38% and 19.28%, respectively.
While the representation of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes is as per the prescribed percentage, the representation of Other Backward Classes is less than the prescribed percentage due to the following reasons:-

(i) Reservation for Other Backward Classes started only from the year 1993.

(ii) OBC candidates who are appointed upto 1993, that is before introduction of reservation for OBCs, are not included for counting their representation;

(iii) There is generally a time gap between occurrence of vacancies and filling up such vacancies, as recruitment is a time consuming process.
Based on recommendations of a Committee headed by the Secretary, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, time bound action plan for filling up backlog reserved vacancies has been intimated to all concerned Departments/Ministries on 20.11.2014 for filling up such vacancies by August 2016. The Action Plan includes study of reasons for non-filling of backlog reserved vacancies, review of prescribed standards, if required; conducting Special Recruitment Drive and conducting pre-recruitment training programmes.
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Laxmi Narayan Yadav and Shri Harishchandra Chavan in the Lok Sabha today.

India Post seeks services of students, unemployed for delivering goods

India Post issues orders under which it can hire third-party persons to pick up and deliver articles from post offices, with a 12% commission for every delivery

With online orders piling up, India Post is hiring students and the jobless to deliver goods, S.K. Sinha, secretary at the department of post, said on Thursday.

The department recently issued orders under which it can hire third-party persons, such as unemployed people and students, to pick up and deliver articles from post offices, with a 12% commission for every delivery.

“If you pick up about 10 orders of about 1 kg, you can earn Rs100-250 per day,” said Sinha, adding that the programme will also help generate employment. There’s an upper limit for how much commission you can earn.

The outsourcing will augment its parcel service and bring it at par with other private parcel services that offer to pick up orders from the customer’s location.

The postal department’s revenue from COD (cash on delivery) consignments from e-commerce majors surged to Rs.1,300 crore in the year ending March 2016, up from Rs.500 crore in 2014-15, and just Rs.100 crore in 2013-14.

E-commerce firms availing India Post’s services include all the major online portals such as Amazon India, Flipkart as well as Snapdeal.

The requirements to register for the program is an identification proof and reference from two prominent person known to the post office, after which the third party will be given a licence to deliver and pick up articles.

With e-commerce and financial services expected to take off, the department is expecting earnings from these services to help break even in the next 6-7 years.

India Post recorded a deficit of about Rs.6,000 crore for fiscal year 2015, a 14.4% increase from a year earlier.

The department is also looking at revenue from its online service, e-post office, which sells philately products as well as the newly launched bottled Gangajal, water from the river Ganga.

There is strong demand for Gangajal with almost all the stock sold out, added Sinha.

India Post has sold at least 4,000 bottles of Gangajal, considered holy by Hindus, from its post offices and online and has witnessed strong demand from southern states such as Tamil Nadu.

“While India Post doesn’t generate any profit from the Gangajal program, it does create a lot of goodwill for the department, which in turn can help attract users for its speed post and banking services,” Sinha said.

Rules framed: Civil servants not allowed to criticise govt on social media

Babus will need to be careful what they say, or draw, on social media. The Centre on Tuesday proposed changes to the rulebook to explicitly treat criticism of government policies on social media as a violation of conduct rules. And the threat of disciplinary action is not limited to the written word. It includes caricatures that are uncharitable to the government too. The proposal comes weeks after an IAS officer Ajay Gangwar ‘liked’ a Facebook post critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and praised first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. “Let me know the mistakes that Nehru should not have committed...Is it his mistake that he prevented all of us from becoming Hindu Talibani Rashtra in 1947?...” he wrote in the post, an oblique rebuttal to continuing attacks on Nehru by BJP leaders. Gangwar, who was Barwani collector, was transferred to the secretariat in Bhopal by the BJP’s Madhya Pradesh government and told to give an explanation. Government officials have always been barred from criticising government policy or making statements that embarrass the Centre’s relations with a state government or a foreign country. But the provision only spoke about criticism made in a radio broadcast, public media (such as television) or documents. Social media was not clearly covered. The change now fixes this gap. “The member of service shall also not make any such statement on television, social media or any other communication application,” the draft rule, sent by the Centre’s department of personnel & training to state governments for their views, said. It will be applicable to anonymous and pseudonymous posts by officials too. The restriction, however, is not unique to India. Back in 2011, a British civil servant, identified at the end of a 7-month investigation, was dismissed for mocking ministers through an anonymous Twitter account. Next year, a Sergeant in the US Marines was sacked for a Facebook post critical of US President Barack Obama. In 2013, an immigration officer lost her job in Australia for posting tweets critical of the country’s asylum policy. She too had tweeted from an anonymous account but it didn’t help. In India, governments and courts have taken a more liberal view of officials criticising its policy. A senior IAS officer serving in the central government who criticised the Election Commission in 2005 was only sent back to his cadre, West Bengal, in 2005. And the Supreme Court shielded another officer – now fertilizer secretary VS Pandey -- from penalties in 2014 for remarks against corruption in the government in his petition. A government source said the existing rules were primarily addressed at criticism made by officials in traditional television and print media, not the new media. “The change primarily seeks to clarify the situation and not leave any scope for misinterpretation,” he said. For now, the changes are being made to the conduct rules for the three All India Services – Indian Administrative Service, Indian Police Service and Indian Forest Service. Once the government notifies the changes after reviewing suggestions from the state governments, similar changes will be made to a separate set of the conduct rules applicable for other employees to

NJCA Letter to Cabinet Secy on Revision of Pension

NJCA

NATIONAL JOINT COUNCIL OF ACTION

4, State Entry Road, New Delhi


Wipro, Infosys, IBM vie for India Post payments bank’s back end operations.

At least 15 companies, including Wipro Ltd, Infosys Ltd and International Business Machines Corp. have shown an interest in handling the back end operations of India Post Payments Bank (IPPB).

All of these companies have responded to a request for proposal (RFP) released by the department of posts on 1 July on its website, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said. The RFP aims to select a systems integrator for delivery of business applications and IT systems for IPPB for a period of five years, and each of these companies has paid Rs.50,000 for the tender document.

The department of post is expected to brief the applicants in the next few days, and the final bids are expected to come in by the beginning of August.

“Both in terms of size and value, the contract is huge. Unlike any other large commercial banks, this will have to have a lot more levels of simplicity since it caters to a different category of customers,” said Ravi Trivedi, an independent consultant who was formerly with audit firm KPMG.

The contract size could be roughly for at least Rs.500-700 crore, Trivedi said.

The postal department will then take a couple of months for evaluation before announcing the winner, said the person aware of the issue quoted above.

“Payment banks’ business models are based on technology; so, there will be high focus and spending on technology,” said Abizer Diwanji, partner and national leader, financial services, EY India.

The department of posts has already awarded a contract to Infosys as its financial services integrator for implementing core banking solutions and installing automated teller machines. Tata Consultancy Services Ltd also won a six-year contract in 2013 for India Post’s IT modernization programme.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, as part of its Digital India programme, is banking on IPPB to take its schemes such as direct benefits transfers to the remotest corners of the country on the strength of India Post’s strong network of about 150,000 post offices.

Like other payments banks, IPPB will target financially excluded customers such as migrant workers, low-income households and tiny businesses. It will not lend and, as a result, will be shielded from the risks that conventional banks are exposed to.

“Payments banks are a very strong component of Digital India and can have a high impact and will bring down the cost of bank transactions in rural areas,” said Ashis Sanyal, a former senior director at the department of electronics and information technology.

The department of posts was among the 11 entities that got an in-principle approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in August 2015 to start a payments bank. Of these, Tech Mahindra Ltd; Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd promoter Dilip Shanghvi and his partners; IDFC Bank Ltd; Telenor Financial Services, and Cholamandalam Investment and Finance Co.— have surrendered their licences after they discovered the business is characterized by high volume and low profit.

For India Post, though, the business will be a natural extension of its work.

Considering the size of India Post’s operations and its reach in the hinterland, this vertical is a lucrative proposition both for the government-owned entity and the private companies who seek to work with it.

Infosys did not respond to queries sent on Thursday.

“We do not comment on ongoing business pursuits,” a Wipro spokesperson said.

On 8 July, the cabinet approved a proposal to set up IPPB with a corpus of Rs.800 crore. The then minister for communications and information technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad, had said IPPB had plans to open 650 branches and will be operational by September 2017.

The payments bank will begin with Rs.400 crore equity capital and a Rs.400-crore government grant. IPPB plans to set up 5,000 automated teller machines as well, Prasad had said

7th CPC Expected DA Calculator from July 2016

DA is the most important allowance in existing Pay, if you look at the current basic DA is higher.

7th CPC Basic fixation has biggest influenced with the DA value. For this reason, after 7th Pay commission implementation, Central government staffs are looking out for how DA would be available.
In 6th CPC, everyone know how DA was calculated
In the above formula 115.76 was fixed based on the below interpretation
After implementation of Sixth Pay Commission report, Government ordered that the dearness allowance has to be calculated based on All India Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers (CPI¬IW index) with the base year 2001-100. So, DA with effect from the period 1.1.2006, has to be calculated using average Price CPI-IW index of 536 for 2005 (base 1982-100) adjusted to the base year 2001-100 by dividing the same with the Linking Factor between 1982 and 2001 Series which is 4.63. As a result, the average consumer price index (Industrial workers) for 12 months in 2005 (base 2001-100) was worked out to 115.76.To calculate Dearness Allowance with effect from Jan-06, we need the average of monthly All India Consumer Price Index (IW) with the base year
2001-100 for the preceding 12 months and apply the same in the following formula:
DA – (Average AICPI-115.76)x 100/115.76
For example, to calculate the DA for 01/01/2007, we find that the average AICPI in the year 2007 -118.95. So, D.A. as on 01/01/2007 – (118.95 – 115.76)*100 /115.76 = 2%.
In 7th CPC entire calculation can change if we use the same combination. Let’s see, how this can change?
Based on it, in 2015 (base 2001 =100) Average is 261.40 and by using the same following formula the expected (assumed) DA in 7th CPC would be (261.4-261.4)*100/261.4 = 2%
In case the base year 2011-100 is used in 7th CPC, then the linking factor will be changed to calculate the DA Value.

7th CPC Recommendations on Annual and Promotional Increment

Pay fixation to be done on the basis of Pay matrix – 3% increment to continue The 7th Pay Commission has recommended that annual increment and Promotional increment are to be paid at the rate of 3% of basic pay.  The ready reckoner with Illustrative Examples are as follows. Annual Increment Suppose, Ms.ABC, who, after having been fixed in the Pay Matrix, is drawing a Basic Pay of Rs.32,300 in Level 4.  When she gets an annual increment on 1st of July, she will just move one stage down in the same Level.  Hence, after increment, her pay will be Rs.33,300. 
Withholding Annual Increments of Non-performers after 20 Years : There is a widespread perception that increments as well as upward movement in the hierarchy happen as a matter of course. The perception is that grant of MACP, although subject to the employee attaining the laid down threshold of performance, is taken for granted. This Commission believes that employees who do not meet the laid down performance criterion should not be allowed to earn future annual increments. The Commission is therefore proposing withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service. This will act as a deterrent for complacent and inefficient employees. However, since this is not a penalty, the norms for penal action in disciplinary cases involving withholding increments will not be applicable in such cases. This will be treated as an “efficiency bar”. Additionally, for such employees there could be an option to leave service on similar terms and conditions as prescribed for voluntary retirement. Grant of First Annual Increment in Recruits Pay : The main demand of the Services in this connection is that the existing stipulation that next increment will be granted from the date of attestation or mustering be done away with. They have pointed out that trades whose skill requirements are low and whose entry level qualifications are lower invariably get attested or mustered earlier and thus are entitled to the next annual increment earlier than trades whose training period is longer. Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission is of the view that grant of next increment in the case of recruits should not place those with higher entry level qualifications at a disadvantage. The Commission, accordingly recommends that the date of enrolment should be reckoned for the purposes of first increment for all recruits who are finally successfully attested/mustered
