7th CPC: Govt to set up anomalies committees

The Centre will set up anomalies committees to examine individual, post and cadre-specific anomalies arising out of implementation of the recommendations of seventh Central Pay Commission.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has been authorized to take action regarding pay and related issues concerning officers of all India services--Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS).

"Anomalies committees will be set up by Department of Personnel and Training to examine individual, post-specific and cadre-specific anomalies arising out of implementation of the recommendations of the Commission," the Finance Ministry said in an order notifying implementation of the pay panel's recommendations.

The three-member Seventh Central Pay Commission, which had submitted its report on November 19, 2015, was divided over the issue of financial and career-related edge given to IAS officers as against those belonging to the other services.

IAS officers presently get a two-year edge over other services for getting empanelled to come on deputation at the Center.

Besides, they also get two additional increments at the rate of 3 per cent over their basic pay at three promotion stages i.E., promotion to the Senior Time Scale (STS), to the Junior Administrative Grade (JAG) and to the Non-Functional Selection Grade (NFSG) after putting in about four, eight and 13 years of service, respectively.

A confederation representing thousands of officers of 20 civil services, including the IPS, have been demanding pay parity and other benefits enjoyed by IAS officers.

"Regarding pay and related issues concerning All India Services, appropriate action will be taken by Department of Personnel and Training to give effect to the decisions on these matters as may be applicable to them," the latest order issued yesterday said.

Non-performing Central government employees will not get annual increment if their performance is not up to the mark

NEW DELHI: Non-performing Central government employees will not get annual increment if their performance is not up to the mark, the Centre has said.
The benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial up gradation has been enhanced to "very good" from "good" level, the finance ministry said in an order notifying implementation of Seventh Central Pay Commission's recommendations.
The Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) scheme will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years of service as before, the ministry said as it "accepted" the pay panel's recommendations.
The recommendation of "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" has been "accepted", it said.
The pay panel had in its report to the Centre said that 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.

Chennai GPO may be first Tamilnadu Post bank (IPPB)

Chennai General Post Office (GPO) is likely to be first post bank in the State to be launched early next year. The Department of Posts is planning to set up ‘India Post Payment Banks’ (IPPB) using the postal network to provide banking services to people.

Aimed at providing access to banking services to people particularly in rural areas, the IPPB will provide a range of services, including direct benefit transfers and facilitate various payments like old age pension and government subsidies. The vast network of post offices would be used to eventually even deliver the payment at the doorstep of customers. Officials of the postal department said such post banks would function as separate entity and function according to the guidelines of Reserve Bank of India.
Mervin Alexander, postmaster General (Chennai city region), said, “Payment banks will deal with money remittances of all kinds to people. This could be useful to people particularly in rural areas who have limited access to banks. But, it will not provide loans. However, savings schemes and deposits will remain under post offices at this point of time.” Earlier, core banking network solutions and postal ATMs were started as part of an initiative to provide banking services at post offices.
Net banking and mobile banking will be the next step towards reinventing the postal services according to the changing trend. The department has also announced a competition for logo design and tagline for the proposed IPPB. The tagline should not exceed eight words either in English or Hindi and the best entries will be awarded with a cash prize of Rs.25,000. The last date of submission is July 31.

India Post Payments bank’s first chief may be an SBI executive

NEW DELHI: India Post Payments Bank, which is in a hurry to appoint a head, could get its first chief executive officer from the country’s largest lender State Bank of India (SBI).

The bank’s board comprising the CEO, chairperson, besides government nominees and five independent directors is expected to be in place by September.
India Post had written to top five government banks including SBI, Punjab National Bank and Bank of Baroda among others in identifying the chief.
Sources said that SBI chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya has already responded and proposed a name. However, at a later stage, the payments bank is likely to have a search and select committee in place for the appointment of a CEO.
“We are in a hurry to put everything in place as soon as possible, we sought suggestions from the top public sector banks to help us in finding a CEO,” SK Sinha, secretary, department of post, told HT.
The government set aside an initial corpus of ₹ 800 crore for the bank. While the bank will roll out 650 bank branches by September 2017, it will also use the 154,000 existing post offices to sell a host of its products and the new bank could hire about 2,000 people
