Heavy Industries Minister meets Employees’ Unions of HMT

Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises

Heavy Industries Minister meets Employees’ Unions of HMT

         The Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Shri Praful Patel today met with the representatives of the employees’ Unions of the Hindustan Machine Tools Limited (HMT), here today. The Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Prof. K.V. Thomas and the Minister for HUPA and Culture Kumari Selja were also present on the occasion. The Ministers heard out the grievances of the employees which related to implementation of pay revision and enhancement in the retirement age from 58 to 60 years.

The Union representatives were informed that the matter has been receiving the attention of the Government - because of the non revision of pay, large scale attribution of employees has taken place specially in core and critical areas. Further, there has been no induction of new talent because of the low pay packages. This has also led to an anomaly by which senior officers were drawing pay less than that of the junior workers. This anomaly can be removed only through implementation of the 1997 pay revision.

It may be recalled that the HMT group of companies are loss making and are not able to generate internal resources to bar the cost of pay revision. Further, as per DPE guidelines, retirement age of employees can be enhanced from 58 to 60 years only in respect of companies which have been making profit in the preceding three years.

The Minister assured the employees that the Ministry would provide full support and build a strong case for the Cabinet approval to 1997 pay revision as well as to change the DPE guidelines for loss making PSUs to enhance the retirement age. The Minister also called for assurance from the Unions for strong commitment to turn around the company.

Subject: Mobility of pensionable personnel between Central Government / Central Autonomous Bodies and State Government — clarification regarding.

 

In terms of the instructions contained in para (iii) of this office letter of even number dated 26-9-2005, which is based on Department of Pension &
Pensioners’ Welfare (DOP&PW)s O.M. No.28/30/2004-P&PW(B) dated 26.7.2005, all the employees who entered in to Railway service / Central
Government service or the service of an Autonomous Body set up by Central Government on or before 31-12-2003 and who were governed by the old pension scheme under the Railway Services (Pension) Rules, 1993/Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules,1972 and who submit technical resignation on or after 1.1.2004, to take up a new appointment under State Government, will be eligible for grant of pro-rata pensionary benefits for the period of Railway/Central Government or Central Autonomous Body service, on the lines as provided in Rule 53 of the Railway Services (Pension) Rules, 1993 or Rule 37 of Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules,1972, as the case may be, and related orders.


2. Subsequently, DOP&PW, vide their O.M. No 28/30/2004-P&PW(B) dated 28-10-2009, circulated vide this office letter of even number dated 4-11-2009, modified their earlier instructions dated 26-7-2005. inter-alia, allowing the continuance of mobility of Government servants/Autonomous Body employees appointed on or before 31-12-2003 and who were governed by the old non-contributory Pension scheme of their respective Governments/organizations in order to provide for the continuance of pensionary benefits based on combined service in accordance with CCS (Pension) Rules,. 1972/Railway Services(Pension) Rules, 1993, between State and Central Government provided the employees were appointed in the State Govt(s) on or before 31-12-2003 and covered under the old pension scheme, similar to CCS(Pension)Rules, 1972.


3. Arising out of the modified provisions as stated in para 2 above, a question has been raised as to whether the provisions of continuance of mobility of employees for the purpose of pensionary benefits based on combined services also applicable in the case of pensionable Central Government employees/pensionable railway employees governed by the old pension scheme under the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972/Railway Services (Pension) Rules, 1993, who join State Governments on or after 1.1.2004 after submitting technical resignation from Central Government/Railway service. The matter has been examined in consultation with the DOP&PW, who have clarified that the instructions contained in their O.M. dated 28-10-2009 (circulated vide this office letter of even number dated 4-11-2009) do not specifically cover the Central Government employees leaving the Central Government service and joining the State Government for the purpose of benefits of combined service for pensionary benefits under the State Government. In terms of DOP&PW’s further clarification, in case the provision for giving the benefit of combined service has been made by the State Governments in their rules, such pensionable railway employees may become eligible for combined service benefits for pension purposes. However, a permanent Railway Servant governed by the Railway Services (Pension) Rules, 1993, joining the State Governments free to seek pension/pensionary benefits as per the provision contained in this office letter of even number dated 26-9-2005, as explained in para Iabove.
