Expected Dearness Allowance from July-2011

with 0 Comment

Expected Dearness Allowance from July-2011
 
Apart from annual increment, which falls in 1st July every year, all the Government Employees are very much excited to know the rate of Dearness Allowance from 1st July 2011.The reason for their excitement to know the D.A from July 2011 is quite simple. Though the Annual Increment also brings some adequate amount of money to their pay package, they feel no excitement in it. Because every body knows and is sure that they will get 3% of their Pay in the pay band and Grade Pay as the Increment of every year and they make it counted. But as for as D.A is concerned nobody knows what will be the rate of increase in Dearness Allowance, as the AICPI Number for the Industrial Workers for the month of June 2011 will be announced probably on 31st July 2011.The amount of increase in Dearness Allowance will make their pay packet big. Unexpected increase in salary will decrease their expected financial burdens. This is the reason many of us curiously searching for the prediction over Dearness Allowance.

AICPIN-IW for the past three months have been already announced by Labour Bureau, Department Statistics, Government of India in its Web site. According to it AICPIN-IW for the month of January 2011 is 188, February 2011-185 and March 2011 is 185. AICPIN-IW for the remaining three months ie April, May and June 2011 have yet to be announced. So this is not the right time to answer correctly to the question of what will be the Dearness Allowance from July 2011? But as per the past 9 months average of monthly All India Consumer Price Index (IW) with the base year 2001=100, we can expect that the hike in Dearness Allowance from July 2011 will be around 6% to 7%

Many of our viewers frequently asking about the rate of Dearness Allowance for the particular year from 1996 to 2011.For their reference the rate of Dearness Allowance from the year 1996 to 2011 has been given below

National Pension Scheme gives mixed bag of returns

National Pension Scheme gives mixed bag of returns
 
In a year when Employees’ Provident Fund gave a 9.5 per cent return and an over 8 per cent inflation rate ate into much of people’s income, the New Pension Scheme gave a mixed bag of results. Rising interest rates and volatile stock markets have impacted its returns in 2010-11 but, since inception, the NPS has managed to do better.

The performance review of fund managers for 2010-11 by the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority has revealed that NPS for private citizens has managed to give higher returns than NPS for government employees.

Central government employees in NPS earned a return of 8.05 per cent to 8.45 per cent, much below the weighted average of 9.7 per cent in 2009-10. While UTI gave the highest return of 8.45 per cent, SBI gave the lowest return of 8.05 per cent. However, returns for state government employees in NPS was much higher, which ranged between 11.34 per cent and 9.88 per cent.

“It is about timing your investments as well as exposure to instruments,” said a PFRDA official. Central government employees who joined the service after 2004 are mandated to be part of NPS, which allows up to 15 per cent of the total corpus to be invested in equities, while the rest in corporate debt and government securities.

Private citizens, who were allowed to join the scheme from May 2009 can invest 50 per cent of their portfolio in equities and the rest in government securities and corporate bonds via one of the six fund managers — UTI Retirement Solutions, SBI, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, Reliance Capital, IDFC AMC and Kotak Mahindra AMC.

Surprisingly, it is not equities but corporate bonds that was the top performer in the past one year.

“Equities have been the most volatile in the past one year, so corporate bonds and G-secs have given a higher return,” said Balram Bhagat, CEO, UTI Retirement Solutions, which was the top performing fund manager for NPS for central government, state government and the low cost NPS Lite.

The fund managers gave returns between 8.05 per cent (SBI) to 11.89 per cent (Kotak) for equities, which was a tad higher than the average return of 11.14 per cent from Nifty and 10.94 per cent from the Sensex. Equities as a class of investment, however, has given as high as a 17.85 per cent (ICICI) return since NPS was launched two years ago.

However, the usually staid and low-risk, low-return bonds and securities proved to be the dark horse, although PFRDA officials said that high interest rate regime has hit bond yields. Corporate bond yielded returns varying between 12.66 per cent (SBI) and 6.26 per cent (IDFC). G-secs have also given handsome returns. While UTI gave 12.52 percent, SBI gave 12.25 per cent. The lowest performer was IDFC with a return of 6.97 per cent in 2010-11.

PFRDA officials however cautioned that returns would be higher over a period of time as NPS corpus grows. The total corpus for central government employees is Rs 6,400 crore and for those of state is Rs 1,200 crore. The private sector contributed Rs 80 crore to the scheme.

Dearness Allowance from July, 2011

After the implementation of Dearness allowance w.e.f January, 2011, all are looking for the next Dearness allowance which should be implemented from July, 2011. As per the 6th Central Pay Commission, all Central Government Employees get Increment from the month of July every year. But D.A is much emphasized than increment. The increment gives only 3% of Basic Pay, but D.A may be more than that and gives more monetary benefit than increment. So people awaiting the declaration of D.A than increment.

The financial website comes with the expectations and calculations of new Dearness Allowance, which would be implemented w.e.f July, 2011. This time The Government tried maximum to catch hold the inflation and the rate of inflation came down on February from the month of January, 2011 (188 to 185) and remain constant in March, 2011. The Consumer price index number of April, 2011 will be published on the end of May, 2011 and there may not be much increase. As per the present scenario the Dearness Allowance may be 55% and may be increased a little bit more.

But due to the recent increase of the price of petrol and the expected increase of the price of other petroleum products, the cost of almost all essential commodities may go up and the All India Consumer Price Index also may go up simultaneously. Then the possibility of Dearness allowance also may go up to 59% or may touch 60% which is very difficult predict right now.

We hope that the Government will try maximum to bring down the cost of living and consumer price index. The increase of cost of living gives a hard time for the people

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Maintenance and preparation of Annual Performance Appraisal Reports- communication of all entries for fairness and transparency in public administration.

The undersigned is directed to draw attention of the Ministries/Departments to this Departments OM No.21011/1/2005-Estt.(A)(Pt.II) dated 14.5.2009 by which the system of communicating the entries in the APAR from the reporting period 2008-09 onwards for representation if any was introduced. The Competent Authority to consider the representation shall decide the matter objectively based on the material placed before him within a period of 30 days from the date of the receipt of the representation The Competent Authority after due consideration may reject the representation or may accept or modify the APAR accordingly. In this Department's OM of even number dated 13.4.2010. it was further decided that if an employee is to be considered for promotion in a future DPC and his ACRs prior to the period 2008-09 which would be reckonable for assessment of his fitness in such future DPCs contain final grading which are below the benchmark for his next promotion, before such ACRs are placed before the DPC, the concerned employee will be given a copy of the relevant ACR for his representation. if any, within 15 days of such communication. It may be noted that only below benchmark ACR for the period relevant to promotion need be sent. This OM dated 13.4.2010 specifically provided that in case of upgradation of the final grading given in the APAR. specific reasons therefor may also be given in the order of the Competent Authority Since the provisions of the above OM dated 13.4.2010 are applicable only for future DPCs where the recommendations will be implemented prospectively from the date of assuming charge of the higher appointment, the provisions will not be applicable to retired officers.

2. The UPSC has brought to the notice of this Department that in the DPCs being held under the aegis of the Commission, orders of the Competent Authority do not contain specific reasons for such upgradation in a number of cases. Such orders cannot be termed as disposed off in a quasi-judicial manner as laid down in the aforesaid OM dated 13.4 2010. Grading an officer below the bench mark by the DPC in such cases on the ground of upgradation being without giving sufficient reasons is prone to avoidable representations.

3. In order that the DPC proceedings are held on schedule and without any necessity to over look the decisions given by the Competent Authority while upgrading the grading in the APAR without specific reasons and justifications, all Ministries/Departments are requested to kindly bring to the notice of the Competent Authority while forwarding the representation against remarks in the APAR that the authority may decide on the representation in an objective manner within 30 days of receipt of the representation and give specific reasons in case of upgradation of the final grading given In the APAR as per provisions contained in this Department’s aforesaid OM dated 13.4.2010.

Govt trashes proposal to increase babus’ retirement age

with 0 Comment


Govt trashes proposal to increase babus’ retirement age
A government committee has rejected a proposal to increase the retirement age of government servants from 60 to 62. The decision is likely to impact over one lakh central government employees and 50,000 defence personnel on the verge of retirement. The proposal — which could have meant saving Rs4,000 crore in this fiscal — was rejected as the government wants a younger bureaucracy.

The fraud complaint
The HRD ministry and sections of the academic community were temporarily preoccupied with a complaint the government received from a body claiming to represent SC/ST employees at the University Grants Commission (UGC) , alleging discrimination by Commission chairman Ved Prakash. But the complaint, it has now been discovered, was fake. The body that sent it doesn’t exist, the UGC’s SC/ST employees’ association has certified. The sender also refused to divulge his identity to the government. A case of attempted malice against the Chairman?

Academics compete with netas for that ‘one more chance’
Politicians, it appears, aren’t alone in keeping their ambitions intact with age. IIT Directors, too, love second terms — even though some believe that a proper reading of the IIT Act — that governs the Institutes — does not allow repeats. After MS Ananth (second term at IIT Madras), Sanjay Dhande (second term at IIT Kanpur) and Gautam Barua (second term at IIT Guwahati), it is the turn of IIT Delhi Director Surendra Prasad to pitch for a second term. The qualification requirements for the post state that applicants should preferably be aged below 60. Prasad — caretaker director at present — is over 60. But that has not stopped him from applying for a second term.

The case of the missing file 
After a file on the Cabinet decision of 1991 — regarding government accounts — went missing, neither the Cabinet Secretariat nor the Finance Ministry — which mooted the proposal — had any clue. Eventually, the Central Information Commission had to intervene and ask the government to locate the file and provide the requisite information to the RTI applicant.

Expected Dearness Allowance from July, 2011

Expected Dearness Allowance from July, 2011

Dearness Allowance has turned out to make great impact among Central Government employees..!

As of now, it cannot be ruled out that the Dearness Allowance is making great impact on central and state government employees in large numbers.

We know that promotion, increment and allowances and its increases depends upon the individuals, as far as Dearness Allowance is concerned, it gives financial benefit to all grade of employees at the same time.

In March 2011, the Central Government announced an increase of 6% Dearness Allowance from Jan 2011. Now everybody keenly watch for the increase of Dearness Allowance from July, 2011.

As all are aware that, Dearness Allowance is calculated as per the All India Consumer Price Index Numbers(AICPIN). The Government has released the price index for the last three months.

Jan-11

188

2127

177.25

61.49

53.12

53

Feb-11

185

2142

178.50

62.74

54.20

54

Mar-11

185

2157

179.75

63.99

55.28

55

As per this, an increase from 51% to 55% is expected. It may be increased as we wait for the next three months calculation on Index prices. If it continues to be this, the Dearness Allowance may be 56% to 57%.

If the Government successfully maintained the price increase and the AICPIN falls, the Dearness Allowance may be restricted to 54% or 55%.

If the prices of petrol and diesel increases, automatically the price index also increase, in this condition the Dearness Allowance may be increased upto 57% to 58%.

Finally, we cannot come to a conclusion depending upon predictions. Everybody wants the Government makes strict actions to maintain the prices of essential commodities rather than increasing Dearness Allowance which in no way helps anyone.

PROTEST AGAINST NEW PENSION BILL

with 1 comment

PROTEST AGAINST NEW PENSION BILL
New Bill: UPA-II Government introduced the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Bill on 24.3.2011 in Lok Sabha. This bill seeks to legalize the New Pension System implemented in Central Government and Railways w.e.f. 1.1.2004 by an executive notification.

The introduction itself has to be approved by a majority of MPs present in the Lok Sabha. The Congress wanted to pass the same with a voice vote. But Shri.Basudeb Achariya, MP and leader of CPI(M) in Lok Sabha, demanded division of votes in support and against. There were only 159 members present at the time of introduction. If only UPA-II allies were present to vote the introduction of bill would have been defeated. This being a finance bill if defeated Government will have to resign. Afraid of this consequence the Congress sought the support of BJP. The BJP came to the rescue of Congress and supported the bill.   Because, the New Pension System itself was introduced by the BJP in the year 2003 and was continued the same by the Congress later on. Out of the159 present 115 MPs supported and 43 opposed. The introduction of the Bill was approved by the Lok Sabha.   This does not mean the Bill is passed. It has to be passed by both the houses after full discussion. , and then only it will become an Act.  

The Congress and the BJP have been behaving as if they were rat and mouse in all other issues. But in the issue of New Pension - an anti-worker bill- both are one.

The NRMS an affiliate of BRMS and BMS belonging to BJP leaders should explain its stand.

NEW PENSION SYSTEM   

Those who are appointed w.e.f. 1.1.2004 are not eligible for [pension, commutation of pension, Family pension, Gratuity, PF. They are governed by New Pension System. Minimum pension of Rs.3500 does not apply to them since minimum pension is not guaranteed. The pension will not increase every time price increases [DA or Pay Commission is implemented]
 
INVESTMENT IN SHARE MARKET       

Every month 10% of Pay and DA including 30% of Running Allowance will be deducted and Government will grant equal amount. There is no interest for the amount as is for PF. The amount will be transferred to the trustee bank, Bank of India appointment by interim PFRDA [Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority]. They have also appointed three Pension Fund Managers. They are SBI Pension Fund Pvt., Ltd,  LIC Pension Fund Pvt., Ltd and UTI Retirement Solutions. All the three by their name seem to be government owned, but infact they are private bodies. They will invest the money in share market and bonds of firms which may be Government or private. At-present 15% has been invested in share market and 85% in bonds. If the bill is passed then 50% to 100% of Pension Fund will be invested in share market.

NO ASSURANCE:      

The PFRDA has announced that “there is no assurance or guarantee that the investment objectives will be achieved.” “The fund may increase or fall,” “there are several risks including the LOSS OF PRINCIPAL”.   

When one retires at 60 years of age he will get 60% for his use. He has to invest balance 40% in an insurance company purchasing an annuity. If he retires before the age of 60 he will get only 20% and balance 80% has to be invested in an annuity. That company will invest the money in share market and give pension according to the returns.

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

In America in the recent market crises $ 3 lakh crores of retired employees was wiped out. They are in the street.      

If a person is wealthy and has everything for his life guaranteed there is no objection to play the gamble with some amount. The pension is the bread and butter of the retired employee. It cannot be left to the vagaries of market risks including the LOSS OF PRINCIPAL.


ANNUITY SCHEME NOT FOR FAMILY        

The Government Notification says the annuity will provide pension for the family. But Akshay-VI, an LIC annuity scheme does not guarantee any family pension. If a retired employee invests Rs.5 Lakhs he will get only Rs.5,000/ every month. No commutation, no DA. No increase whenever Pay Commission is implemented. Whenever market affected he wo’n’t get even this Rs.5,000. After the death the pension ends. Family will get nothing. Rs.5 lakhs invested will be lost.       

If the employee dies or becomes disabled during service, in the old system, there is family pension, Gratuity or disability pension. After struggles the Government has agreed to extend these facilities to those covered by the New Pension also. But only temporarily. If the bill is passed this will also go.

EXPENDITURE…?     

They say that pension expenditure is the reason for the government to hand-over this to private. Even before introduction of Pension in Railways, before 1957, there was Contributory PF Scheme in which Government gave its contribution equal to the employees’ contribution. Only in place of Government Contribution Pension was introduced.. In place of Special Contribution the Death Cum Retirement Gratuity was introduced. Even in the New Pension System there is Government Contribution.. Instead of taking that and paying pension Government is handing over both the contributions to private without the willingness of the employees. This is authoritarian in nature. At the same time withdrawing the right of Gratuity is also against the Gratuity Act.


Gayathri Committee      

The Gayathri Committee [Bangalore] appointed by VI Pay Commission has clearly questioned the expenditure aspect. It says that 54% of pension expenditure is for “Defence”. They have been exempted from the New Pension System. For Railways there is a separate fund allocated in every budget and therefore there is no expenditure for the Government.       

The ratio of Government expenditure for salaries and pension to GDP was 2.7 in 1960 and has come down to 1.8 in 2004-05. This will further come down to 0.54 in 2027-28 according to Gayathri Committee Report [Bangalore].       

The reason is not expenditure, but ideology. They are anti-working class and pro-capitalism. They are pro-liberalization, privatization and globalization.

 
BJP and Congress one  

That the BJP and Congress are one in this anti-worker policy has been exposed by their collusion to pass the introduction of this bill. The Bill was first introduced by the UPA-I. Since left opposed it the UPA-I withdrew it afraid of the support being withdrawn.   Now the same bill has been introduced with the only change in the name of the system from “New Pension System” to “National Pension System”.       

Except left ruled states of Kerala, West Bengal and Tiripura all State Governments of Congress, BJP, DMK etc., have implemented “National Pension System”.

NFIR nor AIRF are one 

Neither NFIR nor AIRF joined the strike of State and Central Government Employees against this system. They have not passed even a resolution. On the contrary Shri.Umraomal Purohit, President of AIRF is one of the trustees in New Pension System Trust which implements this New Pension System. Therefore, the workers have no other alternative but to fight against this by organizing the workers in the street, in the Parliament and in the court. The CITU and its affiliates in Railways DREU in Southern Railway and NREU in South West Railway are organizing the workers against this system to fight in all the forums.
