Govt clears further pay hikes for salary PSU officers

Conceding to the demand from officials of public sector undertakings, the government today announced a further hike of up to 20 per cent in pay packets of about four lakh executives.
The improvement is over and above the pay package notified by the government in November last year, which prompted officers, particularly in the oil sector, to take to the streets.The decision for bettering the pay packages just ahead of the general elections was taken after government took the clearance from the Election Commission.
Asked about the total benefits to the officers and non-unionised supervisory staff after the revision, Home Minister P Chidambaram, who briefed on Cabinet decisions, said it would depend on individual PSUs.Excluding superannuation benefits, on a basic salary of Rs 100 an officer will now draw Rs 370.48 as against Rs 351.12 that was approved last year.

Bank customers will be able to withdraw money from any bank ATM for free of charge from April 1 - RBI

Any Bank… Any ATM…!
In a significant development Reserve Bank of India announced on Friday that Bank customers will be able to withdraw money from any bank Automated Teller Machines (ATM) for free of charge from April-1.
Last year on March 10, the RBI had come out with guidelines limiting the fee charged by banks for using their ATMs by clients of other lenders to Rs 20.
It had also allowed the use of ATM for purposes like balance enquiry free of any charge. However, banks will have the freedom to fix the service charge on cash withdrawal using credit cards and from ATMs located overseas.
Some banks are already offering this service free of cost. But because they are having a smaller customer base and the volumes of such transactions are quite low, they might not be shelling out huge interchange charges to other banks. At present, at the higher end, the customer is charged anywhere up to Rs 57 for each withdrawal from a third-party ATM, and up to Rs 20 for the balance inquiries. Accordin…

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited to introduce pay revision for employees

BSNL to introduce pay revision for employees
Despite a decline in its revenue over the past couple of years, the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has decided to introduce pay revision across the board.
Owing to stiff competition from the private players in the telecom sector, BSNL had been recording a decline in its revenue over the last couple of years. During the last fiscal, BSNL had suffered a decline of Rs 2,000 crore in its revenue. The figure is likely to go up in the current fiscal.
Amidst this situation, a hike of nearly 50 percent has been effected for BSNL employees, that too with retrospective effect from January 2007. Highly placed sources in BSNL told ‘Express’ that the additional amount required in view of the implementation of the new pay scale was yet to be worked out. Moreover, 40 percent of the arrears will have to be paid during this month. This payment will also cause huge financial burden to the public sector undertaking at the end of the financial year.…

All-India Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers’ plea for salary arrears

Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers are on the warpath against what they describe as the discriminatory treatment being meted out to them.
N. Sadanandan, regional secretary of the All India Kendriya Vidyalaya Teachers Association, said on Friday that the 45,000 teaching and non-teaching staff of around 1,000 Kendriya Vidyalayas under the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan were yet to get salary arrears.
He said that the Central government employees had received 40 per cent of salary arrears in cash as per the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission and were about to receive the remaining 60 per cent.
The delay in giving 40 per cent of the salary arrears to teachers was a violation of the Centre’s decision to disburse it this financial year itself.

Turnover of central PSUs up 36% in April-Sep

The state-owned companies have performed well during the first half of the current fiscal recording an impressive increase of about 36 per cent in turnover.
"As per the information received from, Central Public Sector Enterprises, the turnover (during April-September 2008-09) is likely to grow by about 36 per cent over the corresponding period last year," according to the minister of heavy industries and public enterprises, Santosh Mohan Dev.
This is significant as the turnover of the CPSEs during the whole of 2007-08 went up by 12.13 per cent to Rs 10.82 lakh crore (Rs 10.82 trillion).
The 36 per cent increase in turnover recorded by the central PSUs during the first half does not reflect the impact of the global financial meltdown on the performance of the state-owned companies. The impact of the financial crisis, which hit the world in mid-September following collapse of iconic investment banker Lehman Brothers will become manifest during the second half of the fiscal.
