IAF PENSIONERS :FOR CORR PPO - APPLY TO DIRECTORATE OF AIR VETERANS

IAF PENSIONERS :FOR CORR PPO - APPLY TO DIRECTORATE OF AIR VETERANS ( )

At a meeting on 20-12-16, the CGDA representative stated that as per the records received from CPPCs of various Banks, there is a total of 109000 living IAF pensioners out of which 48245 are of pre-2006 vintage. These figures were contested by the AFA because as per our knowledge the IAF pensioners are close to 2.2 Lakhs with 1.6 lakhs belonging to the pre-2006 vintage.

The Secretary Pensions, who was chairing this meeting, then advised CGDA to reconcile the correct figures of the IAF pensioners by comparing the records as held with the DAV and the CPPCs. Corrigendum PPOs:-
The CDA should have issued 2368 Corrigendum PPOs by the 31st December 2016 and additionally, should also have resolved the discrepancies in the records of 15000 other IAF pensioners. The last date of resolving the discrepancies was set as 28 Feb 17. The CGDA was also advised to share the details of 45877 IAF pensioners in respect of whom it has issued the corrigendum PPOs.

The Corrigendum PPOs are necessitated because of changes in Pension entitlement following the pay commissions upto 2006 and now in 2016. Other changes were brought in on 01/07/2009 and 24/09/2014.

Further, changes in the Pensions were also brought about by granting the OROP on 01/07/2014. Thus almost everyone needs to know their correct entitlement factoring in all these changes. The DAV was, thereafter, advised to liaise with the CDAs to ensure that each IAF pensioner receives his corrigendum PPO wherein these changes are duly reflected. People who had sent their requests to the AFA for getting corrigendum PPOs are hereby intimated that their cases have been forwarded to the JCDA(AF) and the DAV.

Kindly check your own PPOs and if all these changes are not reflected in your PPO then please send an email directly to the DAV giving complete particulars with latest address and mobile number, the Bank account details and the personal details about the spouse and his/her date of birth and request the DAV to get your corrigendum PPO issued by the JCDA(AF) and forward it to your address once received by them.

We had our last meeting on 24th October, 2016, wherein, while

is quite unfortunate that, so far much time have passed and

been agitating their minds since implementation of 7th CPC
Report

You are, therefore, requested to call a meeting with the Staff
Side(JCM) to discuss and resolve these issues at the earliest.
With Kind Regards!

Sincerely yours,

EASY METHOD OF CALCULATION OF ARREARS OF DE-LINKING OF 33 YRS – CDA CIR -568

. Even though the Circular 568 was issued on 13-10-2016, Still many veterans have not received their arrears.
Some Banks are finding it difficult in calculation. This circular is applicable to Pre-2006 retirees only.

It is not applicable for 28 yrs and above qualifying service.

It is not applicable to Family pensioners provided they were paid correct rate of pension.

How to calculate Arrears:

Take Cir 568-Annexure B Army.

Take an Example of a Havildar- group- Y QS: 17yrs.
The Minimum Guaranteed Pension is 5820.
His pension shall not be less than this from 1-1-2006 to 1-7-2014 (OROP)

Now see the Position:

Eligible pension from 1-1-2006 as per Cir 568…5820. Paid as per Cir 547 w.e.f 1-1-2006…..4194 - Difference :5820-4194 = 1626 Arrears from 1-1-06 to 30-6-2009=1626 X46.02=74825…(1)

Paid as per Cir 430 w.e.f 1-7-2009…..5038 Difference: 5820-5038=782 Arrears from 1-7-2009 to 23-9-2012= 782X57.62=45058..(2)

Paid as per Cir 501 w.e.f 24-9-2012…5762 Difference: 5820-5762=58 Arrears from 24-9-2012 to 30-6-2014= 58X39.76= 2306. .(3)

Total arrears …74858 +45058 + 2306 = 122189…..

From 1-7-2014, the OROP is paid which is more than 5820.

This is the way to calculate- The only difficulty is to find out the Rates as per ]Cir 547, 430 and 501.
Each one of us can calculate our Arrears . You can compare the amount with the Pass book.
If the pensioner died after 1-1-2006, his NOK is eligible For arrears from 1-1-2006 to the date of death as LTA.

You can visit our web site  http://indianmilitaryveterans.blogspot.com for online calculation of arrears.

Dear veteran brothers, please discuss among yourselves And help each other

  Is India's Military a Pawn On the National Chess Board? 

Dear Friends, You may be interested to read the article BELOW. Sudhir Vombatkere ******************************** 

  Is India's Military a Pawn On the National Chess Board? 
MAJOR GENERAL S.G.VOMBATKERE Thursday, December 29, 2016 

 MYSURU: CBI's arrest of Air Chief Marshal S.P.Tyagi, India's former Air chief, in connection with the Agusta Westland helicopter purchase deal is unprecedented. It raises some questions not only about the functioning of government (combination of the political leadership and the bureaucrat-police network), but also about hidden motivations and unintended compromise of national security due to its effect on the morale of India's military.
 Apart from the valid points made by the Court when granting ACM Tyagi bail, questions arise as to why he was arrested when others involved were not. Was it done deliberately to humiliate him and thereby India's military? Was this the handiwork of bureaucrats and/or the police, and who among the political hierarchy authorised the arrest? These questions are not about whether or not ACM Tyagi is guilty of receiving bribes or any other offence. That matter will be settled by the courts after examining all evidence. But when evidence is still being collected, when ACM Tyagi is cooperating with the CBI in collection of evidence, and there is no prima facie case against him, his arrest smacks of victimization. 
So, why was ACM Tyagi singled out for humiliation? This leads to the point that during the NDA-1 rule under then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, defence minister George Fernandes summarily dismissed Navy chief Admiral Vishnu Bhagwat from service, giving him no chance to respond. It is clear that the government wanted to show its power over the military by summarily dismissing a defence service chief, because the proper and sensible thing to do was to summon Admiral Bhagwat, confront him with his “crime” (whatever that was), and ask him to resign. 

The most generous view one can take is that government (politician-bureaucrat) had no clue as to the repercussions that the public humiliation of a serving defence chief would have on the morale of the Indian Navy and the sister services. Or if it knew, either it did not care, or else the summary dismissal was by design. One wonders what purpose was served by humiliating Admiral Bhagwat and the military as a whole. Now that ACM Tyagi has been humiliated by the NDA-2 government, in retrospect Admiral Bhagwat's dismissal appears to fall in place, especially because in between the Bhagwat and Tyagi incidents, there have been incidents in the NDA-2 tenure which has affected the soldiers' morale, thereby compromising national security. 

 To name a few in random sequence: - 

Sending police to manhandle peacefully agitating Veterans at Jantar Mantar; - 

Stating that OROP would be given to military Veterans by taking it from dues to poor farmers; -

 Notwithstanding reservations of the defence services chiefs, peremptorily directing the three Service Chiefs to implement the 7CPC award without delay; -

 Keeping the military without access to the 7CPC Anomalies Committee which was secretly arranged for civilians; -

 Raising the salaries of CRPF above that of soldiers; Downgradation of military ranks vis a vis civilian officials; 

- Granting NFU to IPS but not to the military; - 

The issue of pay parity with IAS/IPS; - 

Lower hazard allowance than IAS/IPS; - 

Stating that the army did not know its own capability to carry out the post-Uri surgical strike until it was told so; 

- Reducing disability pension immediately following the post-Uri surgical strike; 

- The military commander being pushed aside by a bureaucrat at the 2016 Red Fort Independence Day function; 

- Insulting military war memorials and guard of honour by a functionary deliberately dressing inappropriately or casually. 

 These are apart from the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare appealing as a matter of policy against every judicial decision given in favour of individual Veterans. The recent unprecedented step of “deep selection” of Lt Gen Bipin Rawat as army chief designate by superceding two senior officers, even though this is within the discretionary powers of the Union Cabinet, has caused disquiet among soldiers and veterans. The reason for disquiet is that government appears not to understand that Lt Gen Rawat is not superior in merit to his two seniors whom he has superceded, and if his experience in counter-insurgency is the criterion for his selection, it glosses over the fact that the army is deployed in counter-insurgency only because of the decades-long failure of the bureaucracy-police in its primary role of internal security. If however deep selection was a political decision, this could seriously compromise the army (the military, in general) remaining as India's last bastion of secular practice, and encourage sycophancy among officers to the permanent detriment of military professionalism. 

 It is necessary to note that previous governments including NDA-1 and the Congress regimes preceding and including UPA-1 and UPA-2, had undoubtedly given the military a raw deal, particularly with regard to successive central pay commissions and the OROP demand. Gen Vaidya was appointed army chief by superceding Lt Gen Sinha, and army chief Gen Rodrigues was publicly castigated for his “bandicoots” remark. Even though the political leadership was primarily responsible, the hand of the bureaucracy was clear to every serving and retired soldier. Civil-military relations are today at an all-time low and although the decades-long continuity of the bureaucratic hand is obvious in the current NDA-2 dispensation, the role of the political leadership in humiliating the military is also clear. Considering that for the first time the NSA is a police officer with enormous clout at the top-most level, upgrading of the status of the police over the military while simultaneously humiliating the military is extremely dangerous for the security and safety of India. Powerful national leaders in Europe of the 1930s and 1940s similarly elevated the police over the military. Is history repeating itself?

7th Pay Commission: Clarification of the Defence Civilian Employees’ Revised Pay Fixation

By Devanjana Mukherjee Posted on 21 hours ago

The Ministry of Defence, earlier this month, made a report in regard of Defence Civilian Employees’ Federation which clarifies the misinterpretation of the provisions leading to incorrect pay fixation set for Central Civil Services as of Revised Pay Rules 2016 under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
The reports suggested series of anomalies churned out from Accounting Authorities of the Defence Estates (Estts) or Directorate General Defense Estates to which the respective Federation have demanded a clarification. The Defence Estates have enabled Union Cabinet to issue correct pay fixation orders of the employees as per the recommendations by 7th Pay Commission. Taking the matter in immediate hands on the basis of priority, Ministry of Defense (MoD) has sent a proposal to the Finance Department in the Defence segment which includes clarification regarding the matter of pay fixation. A copy of of the proposal sent during the beginning of December, it views the complaints of Incorrect Revised Pay Rules for Defence Civilian Employees.
Also, a request has been sent on the subject of clarification from MoD/MoD (Finance) which tends to be awaited so that the 7th Pay Commission recommendations of those employees could be issued on the basis of appropriate position. The respective improvised and clarified reports have been communicated to various Accounting Authorities under the control of Controller General of Defence Accounts so as to avoid any irregularity in the context of pay fixation.

The reports mentioned here have been released by the official website of Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh.

Ministry of Defence D(Civ-II)

Subject : Disbursement of salary in cash in the Storm (Vardha) affected area of Chennai –
Representation of Bharatiya Pratiraksha Mazdoor Sangh (BPMS) Defence Civilian Employees Federation BPMS has address letter ref. no. BPMS/MoD/Payment/186(8/1R) dated 27 Dec.2016

(copy enclosed) to the MoD, on the above subject. It has been informed that the storm Vardha has caused enormous damage in the Chennai Area. The disruption of the electricity supply has adversely affected the banking services, thereby causing economic hardship to the Central Government employees working in and around the affected area. It has been requested that the serving employees in the Chennai area may please be paid the salary for the month of Dec 2016 in cash. In view of the position reported by BPMS, it is apprehended that the ATM systems and the computer network may not be functioning in the storm affected area, which may not be allowing the public to access the electronic banking facilities.

It is felt that the hardship being experienced by the affected employees should be addressed with due sensitiveness. It is suggested that necessary instructions may please be issued to the pay disbursing authorities, located in the storm affected area, to explore the possibility of disbursing the salary for the month of Dec 2016 to the Government employees in cash, in accordance with the ceilings/instructions prescribed by the Government

Central employees marched towards parliament, called strike

Indian Military Veterans

Central employees marched parliament yesterday to protest against Govt. regarding different issues about 7th pay commission implementations.

So far Govt. did not form any committee or offer any assurance to revise minimum pay and fitment factor.

Decision on allowances looks remote at least as on date. Associations role is being suspected by most of the employees as they called of the indefinite strike without any positive assurance from the Govt.

Now they have again called for one day strike on 15th February 2016 but will the employees be motivated this time ? They have seen number of betrayals in the past. Let us wait and watch.

High drama over OROP at Old Delhi railway station (The four members had arrived from P

High drama over OROP at Old Delhi railway station
(The four members had arrived from Punjab to meet the defence ministry officials over OROP.)

New Delhi: Four retired Army personnel climbed up a water tank near Old Delhi Railway Station and threatened to jump down over the issue of One Rank One Pension (OROP) on Tuesday. Having climbed up the water tower around 8 am, the non-commissioned officers climbed down the structure only late in the afternoon after defence ministry officials assured them for a patient hearing.

The four members had arrived from Punjab to meet the defence ministry officials over OROP. They were accompanied by eight to 10 other people. Apparently, unable to meet the concerned officers, the four veterans climbed up the water tower before anyone else could realise anything. After that began threats of suicide even as police and defence ministry officials arrived at the scene. Once the men could be convinced to climb down the tower, they and the other people accompanying them were taken to the office of the defence ministry where they met the officials and put forth their demand. “The men left for their hometown after thanking us for facilitating the meeting. They had received a patient hearing with the ministry officials,” said a police officer.

Aadhaar mandatory for pensioners

Indian Military Veterans
Aadhaar mandatory for pensioners 
There is, at present, no proposal to make Aadhaar seeding mandatory for release of pension to the Central Government pensioners.
Eighty-seven percent of Central Government pensioners of all age categories have seeded their bank accounts with Aadhaar number. The remaining thirteen percent, including those Government pensioners of the age of 80 and 90 years have not yet seeded their bank accounts with Aadhaar number. The Government has made efforts to seed accounts of all Central Government pensioners with Aadhaar numbers so as to enable them to benefit from the additional facility of submission of Digital Life Certificate. Public Sector Banks are authorised to enroll pensioners for issue of Aadhaar number, including old and infirm pensioners.
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 written reply to a question by Shri Natubhai Gomanbhai Patel in the Lok Sabha today.

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG - STRIKE IS INEVITABLE

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG

REVISED ALLOWANCES WILL NOT BE PAID IN THIS FINANCIAL YEAR.

ALLOWANCES COMMITTEE'S TIME LIMIT EXTENDED UPTO 22.02.2017

CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AGAIN CHEATED BY NDA GOVERNMENT

STRIKE IS INEVITABLE

MAKE 15th DECEMBER PARLIAMENT MARCH 
A THUNDERING SUCCESS!

          Dr. Urjit R. Patel, Governor, Reserve Bank of India has made the following observations in a media conversation which is published in RBI website.

(1) The disbursement of salaries and arrears under 7th Pay Commission award has not been disruptive to inflation outcomes.

(2) The extension of two months given to the Ministry of Finance to receive the notification on higher allowances under the Pay Commission's award, COULD PUSH IT'S FULLER EFFECT INTO THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR rather than this financial year.

          The above statement by the Governor, RBI clearly indicates that THE ALLOWANCES WILL BE REVISED ONLY AFTER FEBRUARY 2017 AND WILL COME INTO EFFECT IN THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR ONLY.

          Earlier to a question regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula Minister of State for Finance Shri Arun Ram Meghwal gave the following reply in the Raja Sabha on 23.11.2016.

          "The anomalies arising out of implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission will be examined by the Anomaly Committee which has already been constituted. Based on the report of the Committee, the matter will be considered by the Government and appropriate decision will be taken. 

          From the reply it is clear that the question of increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment factor is to be decided by the Anomaly Committee. That is why the Government has not formally constituted THE HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE as assured by the Group of Ministers to the JCM Staff side leaders in the  30th June night  discussion. And this is the reason for Group of Senior Officers behaving as if they .don't know what the task is assigned to them. Now by 30th December SIX months will be over after the 30th June assurance given by Group of Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singh , Hon'ble Home Minister , Shri Arun Jaitley , Hon'ble Finance Minister and Shri Suresh Prabhu , Hon'ble Railway Minister . Employees and Leaders have never expected such blatant breach of assurance given by Senior Cabinet Ministers of NDA Government.

          The revision of pay and pension of thousands of Autonomous body employees and Pensioners  is also pending for the last six months. On 17.11.2016 Finance Ministry has given instructions to all Autonomous bodies NOT TO EXTEND the benefits of 7th CPC to employees and Pensioners of Autonomous bodies UNTIL FURTHER ORDERS.

          The One man Committee constitute by Government for revision of wages and service conditions of three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of Postal Department had submitted it's report to Government on 24th November 2016.  Even after 20 days, the Government is not ready to publish the report or give copy to the recognised Federations.

          The revision of wages of Casual, Part-time Contingent and Contract workers, consequent on implementation of 7th CPC wage revision is also pending.

          The one and the only favourable recommendation of 7th CPC ie; Parity between past and present pensioners (Option - 1) stands referred to a Committee which has taken a stand that Option - 1 is not feasible.

          None of the demands raised by Confederation in its 20 point charter of demands is settled.

THERE IS NO SHORT-CUT OTHER THAN STRUGGLE.

AWAKE!    ARISE!!  UNITE COMRADES!!!

Sub: Processing of Pension cases mandatorily through Bhavishya (Online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System) wef 01/01/2017 — reg,

Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare is responsible for formulation of policy and coordination of matters relating to pension policy and welfare of Central Government pensioners. It has been seen that despite detailed guidelines and instructions to the contrary a large proportion of retiring employees do not get their retirement benefits and the Pension Payment Order(PPO) in time It is likely that such retired employees find it difficult to get the process completed after retirement. The sanction process starts more than a year before the date of retirement and requires cooperation amongst various agencies.

This department has, therefore, launched Bhavishya — an online pension sanction and payment tracking system, The system by keeping track of the progress Of each case introduces transparency and accountability. Both the retiring employees as well as administrative authorities can monitor progress at each stage.

2. The system has been running successfully in the main Secretariat of all ministries/departments for the last one year, It has since been extended to cover over 3000 Drawing and Disbursing Officers and Pay and Accounts Offices from various ministries/departments and their attached offices

7th Pay Commission: Finance Ministry gets extension of 2 months, may delay higher allowances notification

New Delhi, Dec 7:

The notification for the implementation of higher allowance, under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, is likely to be issued after January 2017.
The Finance Ministry has got extension of two months to issue the higher allowances notification under 7th Pay Commission recommendations. It means the higher allowance notification, under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, may get delayed till January next year.
The government intends to accept the report of ‘Committee on Allowances’ after December 30, deadline for depositing demonetised notes. The October-November month is the scheduled for issuing notification, but the Finance Ministry has got extension of two months because of the cash shortage following demonetisation drive.
The government doesn’t want to increase the burden of banks that has been witnessing cash crunch due to demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. The government hopes that situation will return to normal after December 30 and it will be able to pay higher allowances to its 4.8 million employees as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. “The October-November month is the scheduled for issuing notification for the Finance Ministry, but the time was extended by 2 months because the cash crunch on account of demonetisation, which is taking time to get normality,” a Finance Ministry official was quoted as saying by Sen Times. “Therefor, unless the banks can begin to function with a modicum of efficiency, the government will not issue notification on higher allowances to save demonetisation chaos,” he added. Sources in the Finance Ministry said the government is likely to issue higher allowances notification under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations from January next year, after the the cash crunch will ease.
The central government employees have been waiting for fatter allowance since July when the notification for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations was issued. Earlier we reported that the government is planning to pay higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission from January, 2017.The ‘Committee on Allowances’, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa, on fatter allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations is ready with its report. However the massive cash crunch post demonetisation drive has compelled the Finance Ministry to keep in abeyance the enhanced allowances till things normalize. Allowances are now being paid to the central government employees according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations.

7th Pay Commission: Central govt employees to get higher allowances with January salary

Central government employees will get higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations with their January salary, said Finance Ministry sources.

  7th Pay Commission: Central govt employees to get higher allowances with January salary
New Delhi, Dec 4:

Central government employees will get higher allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations with their January salary, said Finance Ministry sources. The government is planning to pay high allowances under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations from January 2017, however no final decision has been taken over arrears. The demonetisation drive that has led to a massive cash shortage has also delayed the payment of higher allowance under the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.
The government hopes that situation will return to normal after December 30 and it will be able to pay higher allowances to its 4.8 million employees. According to a report of the Sen Times, the Finance Ministry has confirmed that central government employees’ salaries for January will be in line with the higher allowances. The cabinet will take the final call over the payment of arrears, said the report. The central government employees have been waiting for fatter allowance since July when the notification for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations was issued. While the Centre is planning to pay higher allowances with retrospective effect from August 2016, central government employees’ unions have demanded for implementation of the allowances with retrospective effect from January 2016. “This depends on the cabinet. If the cabinet gives the nod higher allowances with retrospective effect from August 2016, the arrears will be paid,” a Finance Ministry source was quoted as saying. “The government faces severe attack for cash crunch because of demonetisation. But the situation will return to normalcy after the deadline of December 30 for deposit of invalid Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes,” he added.

The 7th pay commission had recommended abolition of 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances, which was opposed by the central government employees’ unions. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley formed the ‘Committee on Allowances’ on July 22 for examination of the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on allowances other than dearness allowance. The committee is ready with its report and will soon submit to the Finance Ministry. Earlier we reported that the government has decided to stick to the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on basic pay and there will no no hike in basic pay or fatter allowances.

7th pay commission order issued Panaji

The Goa government on Wednesday issued an order for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for its 55,000-plus employees.
The cabinet had last week approved the proposal for the implementation of the new pay scales, which will also be applicable to 45,000 pensioners. As per the notification issued by state finance secretary, Daulat Hawaldar, the revised pay scale would be implemented for all government employees and employees of government-aided education institutions with effect from January 1.
The actual payment through monthly salary will commence from January 2017. “Only part ‘A’ of the schedule appended to the Central Civil Services (revised pay) rules, 2016, as adopted by the government of Goa, will be implemented,” the order said.
The revised pay structure will include dearness allowance (DA) of 12.5% sanctioned from January 1 in the pre-revised structure. DA should stand revised at 2% from July 1.
Arrears of pay in the revised pay structure with effect from 01-01-2016 to 31-12-2016, shall be claimed separately and these arrears would be credited to the respective GPF/special account in respect of employees covered under NPS (national pension scheme).
The existing system on interest-free advances for medical treatment, travelling allowance for family of deceased, travelling allowance on tour or transfer and leave travel allowance would continue. The order will not cover judicial and non-judicial court officers or employees functioning in courts, whose pay is separately governed by order of the ministry of law. Similarly, the order will not be applicable to employees of corporations, autonomous bodies, societies, agencies and public sector units, Panchayati Raj institutions and urban local bodies, whether belonging to common cadre or otherwise. In view of anomalies, a two-member work study-cum-anomaly committee comprising Shyamsundar Korgaonkar (ombudsman) and Nobert Moraes, retired accounts director will be set up.

In A discussion on the DoPT-specific allowances with the Staff-Side National Council (JCM) was held at 3.00 p.m. on 25.10.2016 under the Chairmanship of Secretary(Personnel) in Room No. 119, North Block, New Delhi in compliance of the direction contained in the minutes of the 2nd meeting of the Committee on Allowances held on 01.09.2016 that every Ministry/Department should firm up its views/comments on allowances relating to the Ministry/ Department after holding discussion with their Staff Associations.

2. List of participants is at Annexure.

3. At the outset JS(JCA) welcomed all the members of the Staff side of the National Council of JCM to the discussion on department specific allowances. JS(JCA) informed that in the second meeting of the Committee on Allowances it was decided that all the department specific allowances will be discussed with the JCM. After a brief introduction it was decided to discuss the following department specific allowances on which DOPT has received the comments from Staff-Side.

> Children Education Allowance (CEA)

The Staff-Side stated that the benefit of Children’s Education Allowance should be extended to the Graduate and Post Graduate levels also. They informed that the private institution are charging -exorbitantly. It was further stated that, subject to a ceiling on tuition fees and hostel fees, the CEA should be extended to the Graduate and Post Graduate levels. Staff-Side further informed that they had also represented to the Pay Commission for simplifying the procedure wherein they had suggested that reimbursement should be based on the bonafide certificates from the schools where the children were studying. This suggestion has been accepted by the Pay Commission and the Staff-Side requested that it should be implemented. Some questions were raised on DOPT’s circular on e-receipt. On the issue of DOPT’s circular on e-receipt, Secretary, DoPT clarified that the circular had been issued before the government accepted the 7th Pay Commission recommendation. (Action: JS(Estt.)

➢ Night Duty Allowance (NDA)

Staff-Side pointed out that despite a Board of Arbitration award in favour of employees that Night Duty Allowance (NDA) should be given in the 5th CPC pay scale from 01.01.1996, the NDA was still being paid at the 4th CPC rate as the Government did not accept the award. Staff side further stated that this had led to a lot of litigation in the M/o Defence and the matter had gone up to the Supreme Court. Hon’ble Supreme Court had directed that it should be paid on the basis of the actual pay drawn and that NDA should be revised w.e.f. 01.04.2007 at the 6th CPC pay scale which had been implemented by the Government. However, audit authorities came up with an objection that there was a ceiling on it which had been objected to by the Staff-Side. The Staff-Side informed that the Ministry of Defence had forwarded a proposal recommending that Night Duty Allowance (NDA) may be paid without any eligibility ceiling as per the court judgment to DoPT. It was further said that since the matter is getting delayed, affected employees are contemplating to file a contempt of court proceedings. To avoid such a situation, DoPT may kindly get the necessary clarification issued to Ministry of Defence. Apart from that, the 7th Central Pay Commission has recommended that it should be worked out with the actual pay of the employee being the criterion. However, in spite of that, except for the Ministries of Defence and Railways, employees working in other Ministries/Departments are getting it at 4th CPC rate. Thus, the absence of uniformity-on-this-allowance-across Ministries /Departments is very glaring which, according to the Staff-Side, is a principal source of litigation and will continue to remain so. Therefore, the Staff-Side suggested that an early revision of the NDA without ceiling, and on the basis of the actual basic pay, and extending it to whoever is asked to do night duty will go a long way in reducing litigations in the future. (Action: JS(Estt.)

Over Time Allowance (OTA)

Staff-Side pointed out that there are two types of over time duty. One is covered under the Factories Act, 1948, and the other is for the office staff. In the first case, since it is a statutory obligation, the Pay Commission has not recommended anything. But for those Central Government employees who are not covered under the statutory provisions of the Factories Act, OTA is paid at a single rate of Rs.15.85/-only and, that too, for the first hour immediately after the scheduled office closing time, it is Nil. In case of OTA there is also an arbitration award from 01.01.1996 that it should be at par with the 5th CPC pay scale. However, neither it has been implemented nor have the rates been revised. The Staff-Side stated that if an employee is asked to work after office hours, the rate of OTA should be as per 7th CPC pay scale. Staff-Side were of the opinion that overtime means working after office hours, and asking an employee to work beyond office hours automatically entitles him/her to this allowance. The over time rates should also be above the normal level. It was pointed out by them that as per 7th CPC, an MTS is paid @ Rs.75/hour; whereas overtime allowance is @ Rs. 15.85/- only. Even an outsider employed on casual basis is being paid hourly wages which are more than OTA. The Staff-Side were strongly of the view that if government is deploying a person on overtime work then he has to be paid at least according to the rate of salary which he is getting. (Action: JS(Estt.)

➢ Cash Handling Allowance (CHA)

Also Read:Meeting of the Committee on Allowances

Also Read:Salary Advance(10,000)

Application Form Staff-Side informed that the 7th CPC recommendation on its abolition is based on the fact that in most of the offices today salary disbursement is not made in cash. It is credited to the individual bank accounts. But cash transactions did take place in certain offices like the Post Offices where cash handouts are made under the Mahatma Gandhi _National Rural Employment Guarantee Act. PLI was also another example. Therefore, if it was stopped all of a sudden, there would be no interest in working as cashiers and for taking the’ additional responsibility of handling huge amounts of cash. Therefore, the Staff-Side contended that till all cash transactions are eliminated, CHA should continue. It was also pointed out by them that this allowance depended on the amount of cash transaction; when the volume of cash transaction came down, the allowance would also proportionately come down. (Action: JS(Estt.)

➢ Uniform related allowances

subsumed in a single Dress allowance (including shoes) Staff-Side informed that the 7th Pay Commission had recommended that Persons Below Officers Rank (PBOR) should be given DressAllowance @ Rs.10,000/- per month instead of stitched uniforms. There are 5 Ordnance Factories under Ministry of Defence where persons are exclusively deployed to produce special high altitude dresses for the combat forces of the army. 12000 employees are working in these 5 factories. Therefore, if a uniform rate like this is maintained, it will have an adverse impact on the quality of these high altitude uniforms and will thus jeopardise the safety of the armymen and the nation as a whole. Staff-Side is stated to have already made a request to M/o Defence not to implement this recommendation. Army has also taken a stand that this will result in substandard or sub quality material and workmanship. Therefore, this recommendation on the Dress Allowance for PBOR should not be implemented. As far as Civilian employees are concerned, Staff-Side informed that the 7th CPC had recommended four slabs of Dress Allowances for various categories. One of the categories is called Others’. In the Department of Posts there were about 75,000 postmen and Multi Tasking Staff wearing uniform, however, there was no mention about these postmen and multi tasking staff in any of the categories shown by the Pay Commission. If it was presumed that they come under ‘Others’, then they would be getting Rs. 5,000 whereas at present they were getting around Rs. 7,000 plus washing allowance. As such a separate category should be there for postmen and MTS also and the allowance should be Rs.10,000/-.Staff-Side pointed out that there were many categories like canteen employees, security staff, chowkidars who had not been mentioned and who were eligible for uniform or uniform allowances. It had to be, therefore, clarified that these categories would be covered under Others’. Staff-Side stated that whosoever is getting Dress Allowance as on today should continue to get that. Staff-Side also informed that the recommendations on Dress Allowance had created a lot of discrimination among staff working in similar circumstances. Staff-Side drew attention to the Dress Allowance with respect to the Nursing Staff. They informed that earlier also Nursing Staff were not given normal washing allowance or dress allowance considering the importance or the peculiar conditions prevailing in hospitals. Now they had also been bracketed in the general category. They were getting Rs.750 as Uniform Allowance and Rs. 450 as Washing Allowance per month. Now there is no separate category that has been given to them. For them a different dispensation should be made taking into account their special requirements because they work in such an environment where their uniforms require regular washing entailing a substantial expenditure. As these have not been accounted for in the 7th CPC, the nursing staff should have a special dispensation, as was strongly felt by the Staff-Side. JS (JCA) requested Staff-Side to submit a note on the justification or break-up of the amount of Rs.32,400(maximum) as suggested by them and the Staff-Side agreed to provide the same. (Action: JS(JCA)/Staff-Side)

> Risk Allowance

The Staff-Side informed that Ministry of Defence is engaged in arms and ammunitions manufacturing etc. In the process of manufacturing them, the staff engaged for this purpose, have to handle hazardous chemicals, acids and so many other poisonous combinations. Cabinet has approved 45 risk operations pertaining to Defence civilian employees. Apart from that, because of the rapid technological developments and increased requirement of the armed forces for modern equipments, ammunitions and explosives, risky operations are there of which Ministry of Defence is aware. In spite of this, the existing Risk Allowance has been abolished by the Pay Commission. It was pointed out by the Staff- Side that it had not been subsumed under the risk and hardship matrix, but rather it came in the abolition list. Staff-Side informed that they have discussed this with Defence Secretary and Defence Ministry is going to recommend in favour of its inclusion in one of the matrix. In response to the query of Secretary, DOPT as to whether the activities which have been considered to be risky have all been identified, Staff-Side clarified that it has been identified by a High Level Committee and approved by the Cabinet. 45 risk operations have been identified and approved. But within a period of two decades, lot of new ammunitions and new explosives have come in the arsenal, alongwith a lot of hazardous chemicals and acids. So, M/o Defence appointed a Committee and they have identified that all these are additional risk operations over and above the 45 identified, where Defence Civilian employees are actively involved. But the Pay Commission has abolished Risk Allowance. So this has to be incorporated in one of the risk matrix. (Action: JS,Estt.)

> Other Items

Staff-Side has pointed out that in the 7th CPC report it has been stated that any allowance not mentioned and hence not reported to the Commission shall cease to exist immediately. They have requested that this recommendation should be rejected. On the contrary, the administrative Ministries should come forward and recommend for their abolition or retention. Staff-Side has also stated that 7th CPC had abolished all advances completely. Noting that we regularly celebrate a number of festivals like Diwali, Holi, Eid and keeping the general sentiment in mind, Staff side was of the view that advances were very necessary. Moreover, these advances are required to be paid back to the Government.

On Family Planning Allowance, the Staff-Side stated that since the Government had not changed its Family Planning policy, the allowance should be continued. At least in the case of those people who were getting it should continue to get as they had fulfilled all conditions when the allowance was granted, otherwise there would be a drop in their emoluments.

The Staff-Side also demanded that the 7th CPC had not revised the rate of Fixed Medical Allowance for pensioners. Therefore, the Fixed Medical Allowance for pensioners may be revised to Rs. 2,000/- from the existing Rs. 500/-. (Action D/o Expenditure/ Ministry of Health & FM)
