A wave of woes ‘grips’ govt employees

Instead of rejoicing the increased pay packet they were offered, it appears that a strong wave of dissatisfaction has gripped them!

Days after the State govt had hiked their dearness allowances (DA) by 7% – from existing 58% to 65% of their basic salary – at par with that of the Central govt employees, the State govt employees under the banner of Confederation of Service Associations of Arunachal Pradesh (CoSAAP) today said they were totally dissatisfied with the way of disbursing the hiked DA to them.

An official document made available by CoSAAP said that in pursuance to the Union Finance Ministry’s ‘note’ dated 3rd April 2012, the govt of Arunachal Pradesh, on dated 2nd June 2012, decided that the dearness allowance payable to the State govt employees shall be enhanced from existing 58% to 65% with retrospective effect from January 1, 2012.

BSNL Employees defer indefinite strike

A Land Mark achievement. 

The call for indefinite strike from 13-06-2012 has been deferred, following an agreement signed between the Forum of BSNL Unions & Associations and the Management. The long pending demand of the BSNL employees that 78.2% IDA fixation  should be given, has  been settled. This is undoubtedly a land mark  achievement, considering the present week financial position of the company. 

When BSNL Management issued order on 25-05-2012, granting 6th CPC recommended allowances to the unabsorbed ITS officers, the Forum of BSNL Unions & Associations also demanded that the genuine demands of the employees, including 78.2% IDA fixation should be settled. The BSNL Management tried to divert the issue by keeping the order granting allowances to the ITS officers under abeyance. However, the Forum remained firm that the demands of employees should be settled.

Stop charging prepayment penalty on home loans: RBI to banks

In a relief to borrowers, the RBI on Tuesday  asked banks to immediately stop charging penalty on pre-payment of home loans taken on floating interest rates.

"It has...been decided that banks will not be permitted to charge foreclosure charges\pre-payment penalities on home loans on floating interest rate basis, with immediate effect," the Reserve Bank said in a communication to banks.

The RBI noted that the Damodaran Committee had observed that foreclosure charges levied by banks on prepayment of home loans were resented by home loan borrowers.

This is particularly so considering that banks were found to be hesitant in passing on the benefits of lower interest rates to the existing borrowers in a falling interest rate scenario, it added.

Expected DA from July 2012 may be 7% again

Central D.A. from July'12 may be 7% again.

Subject to AICIN data for the next two months remaining in the current level, the following assumption is being made.

The AICPIN data for April 12 has been recently published. It rises to 4 points and reached 205. We know that D.A. is calculated on the basis for 12 months average. To calculate the D.A. payable from 1st July 2012, we need the figures of May and June 2012 which are to be released on 30.06.12 and 31.07.12 respectively. If the data remains for the next two months in the same level, i.e. 205, the hike will be 7%. Even if it marginally drops  1 point in any of the months, the rise will be still 7% which will take the total D.A. to 72%.
