INTUC against disinvestment of public sector units

Kolkata, Oct 27 (PTI) Opposing disinvestment of profit-making public sector units, Congress-affiliated trade union INTUC today questioned why Coal India was disinvested.

"We are against disinvestment of profit-making public sector units. If the government wants to disinvest PSUs making loss there is no problem, but profit-making companies should be kept away," INTUC national president G Sanjeeva Reddy told a press conference here.

Stating that coal is a profit-making sector, he asked why disinvestment was made there. "I have spoken to the Prime Minister on this and he has agreed in principle that disinvestment should not be made in profit-making public sector units."

Regarding Coal India, the Prime Minister told him that government had sold only out 10 per cent share and it would not be increased further, Reddy said

OFFICE MEMORANDUM



Sub.:       Payment of Commutation Value of additional amount of pension in respect of employees who retired on/after 1.1.2006 but before 2.9.2008 and expired before exercising option for commutation of additional amount of pension – Regarding.

          As per the provisions contained in para 9.3 of this Department’s OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 2nd September, 2008, the revised table of commutation value for pension will be used for all commutations of pension which become absolute after the date of issue of this OM. In the case of those pensioners, in whose case commutation of pension became absolute on or after 1.1.2006 but before the issue of this OM, the pre-revised Table of Commutation value for pension will be used for payment of commutation of pension based on pre revised pay/pension. Such pensioners shall have an option to commute the amount of pension that has become additionally commutable on account of retrospective revision of pay/pension on implementation of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission. On exercising such an option by the pensioner, the revised Table of Commutation Value for pension will be used for the commutation of the additional amount of pension that has become commutable on account of retrospective revision of pay/pension. In all cases where the date of retirement/commutation of pension is on or after 2.9.2008, the revised Table of Commutation Value for pension will be used for commutation of entire pension.

2.        References have been received from various Departments seeking clarification from this Department whether the commutation value of additional pension in respect of such employees who had retired during the period between 1.1.2006 and 2.9.2008 and died before exercising option is payable to the eligible member of family or not. The issue has been examined in consultation with Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure who has observed that the Pay Commissions’ intention was that the pensioner should exercise a conscious choice in view of the fact that the commutation table has changed w.e.f. 1.1.2006. As such, in these cases, the Rule 10 of CCS (Commutation of Pension) Rules, 1981 may be followed and difference in commuted value be paid without fresh applications. The intention was not to deny the higher capitalized value on account of revision of pension.

3.       This issues with the concurrence of Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure vide their UO No. 456/EV/2010 dated 18.10.2010.

All Additional Central P.F. Commissioners,
All Regional P.F. Commissioner (I) In-Charge of the Regions,
All Regional P.F. Commissioner (II) In-Charge of the SROs.



Subject: Grant of Pay Structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4600 in PB-2 to the post that exists in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 01.01.2006 which were granted the Normal replacement Pay Structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4200 in the PB-2.



Sir,
Please refer to this office letter No. HRD/1(2) 2008/Implementation of 6th CPC/16306 dated 17.03.2010 on the subject mentioned above wherein Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- in place of Rs.4200/- was allowed to the cadre of EO/AO.

In this circular, it was further clarified that as per the H.O. letter NO. HRD/1(a)2003/Pay scales/Pt.II/60951-6500-10500 notionally w.e.f. 1/04/2004 with actual financial effect from 1/9/2007, therefore the financial benefits in accordance with the DoPT circular in the cadre of EO/AO shall be effected w.e.f. 1/09/2007 onwards.

In this regard, it is to state that it has come to the notice of the Head Office that while implementing the above mentioned order of granting Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- to EO/AO, the benefit of pay fixation has also been extended by some regions, either by giving increment or by fixing the basic pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale of Rs.7450-11500/- by using fitment table. This is totally erroneous and against the spirit of the order.

It is once again clarified that the aforesaid letter permits the grant of only Grade pay of Rs.4600 in place of Rs.4200 and no benefits of pay fixation i.e. grant of any increment of fixation of pay using fitment table corresponding to pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500/- are to be given in this regard. If such benefits have been given, then the recovery of the excess amount should immediately be effected and an action taken report be sent to this office by 29th October 2010 positively.



s/d
Yours faithfully

(R.K.Kukreja)
Regional P.F. Commissioner (HRM)
