A Reader’s Opinion about Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS)

The Tamil newspaper Dinamalar recently published an opinion of one of its readers about Performance Related Incentive Scheme.

According to the writeup, based on the recommendations by the Sixth Pay Commission, the scheme had been introduced more than five years ago in select central government departments like atomic energy, space research and defence.

The scheme has already been implemented in atomic energy, space research and scientific and technical research departments under the name of “Performance Based Incentive Scheme”. As a result, there has been tremendous improvement in the productivity and output of these departments.

Retirement issue is to be handled with social mindset – says Dr. Jitendra Singh

There are approximately 40,000 fresh retirees every year from the Central Government Civil establishments alone. This number could be close to 1,00,000 including defense, railways, posts and telecom. In addition there is a pool of around 50 lakh existing pensioners. This group of personnel can, by and large, offer greater maturity, experience and stability. With improved living conditions and the best of medical facilities, most of these retiring government employees would be capable of putting in a good 5-7 years of active service.

Suggestion on Dearness Allowance for 7th Pay Commission – NC JCM STAFF SIDE

National Council JCM Staff Side suggested on the issue of Dearness Allowance in 7th Pay Commission, the existing formula of computation of Dearness allowance and its payment with effect from 1st January, and 1st July may continue…

Dearness allowance
The neutralisation envisaged under the present system of computation of dearness compensation is supposed to be cent per cent, but in reality it is not the case. Actual consumer price index is much higher than the level at which DA is calculated on the basis of 12 monthly average. The average is always lower than the actual cost of living.

Budget 2014 – CII suggests raising 80C deductions to Rs. 2.5 Lakhs

In its Pre-Budget wish list regarding Income Tax 80C, the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) has suggested to the Finance Ministry that the consolidated deduction under 80C be raised from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakhs.

Most Central Government employees have savings schemes that are linked with General Provident Fund. Under this scheme, the employee not only gets interest for the money saved, but also enjoys the option to withdraw the money whenever required. The money is also entitled to exemption under Section 80C. It has to be mentioned here that new employees (appointed on or after 2004) do not have this option.

If the Income tax deduction is raised from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 2.5 lakh under Section 80C, then there are possibilities that savings will increase among the employees.

Demand for 50% DA Merger presented to the new government

It looks as if this time all the Central Government Employees Federations are seriously committed to getting 50% Dearness Allowance added to their basic pay!

All the CG employees federations have strongly made this demand to the newly formed Government at the Centre. They have all explained the reasons and submitted the justification, why they have made this demand and have requested that it be implemented.

The demand was first put forth in the middle of last year. It was hoped that the demand would be implemented before the general elections. Everybody expected an announcement in this regard at the end of the last cabinet meeting that was held on February 28, 2014. The disappointment they felt wouldn’t be easy to forget.

Jammu & Kashmir Employees Retirement Age hiked to 60, on par with Central Government Staff

During the cabinet meeting of June 3 that was presided over by J&K Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, it was decided to increase the retirement age of state employees from 58 to 60, on par with the Central Government employees.

It is worth mentioning here that the resolution marks the successful culmination of more than 6 years of protests and demands made by various employees unions across the state. There are also talks that the decision was made with the Lok Sabha elections in mind, which are due at the end of this year. 

6-day Week for Central Government Employees from now on...!

6-day Week for Central Government Employees from now on...!

Central Government employees and those employed in various Central ministries, who had until now enjoyed a 5-day week have been advised to henceforth work 6 days a week. The system is expected to be shortly implemented to other departments too. 

In the 1980s, when Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister, central government offices worked on Saturdays too. It was Rajiv Gandhi, who had, on May 21, 1989, implemented the 5-day week system for central government employees. The system, which was in force for 25 years, is now being quietly changed. Since there could be a backlash from the employees, the scheme will most likely be implemented every alternative week in the initial stages. Talks are now on.

Will Modi Government Implement PRIS?

Will Modi Government Implement PRIS?

One could observe that the newly sworn-in Modi Government has wasted no time to get into action. That being the case, the question now on everybody’s mind is – will the new Government implement the Performance Related Incentive Scheme (PRIS)?

It is worth mentioning here that Modi himself holds the portfolio of the ministry that is responsible for all decisions pertaining to the Central Government employees. 

News media have carried statements allegedly made by Central Government officials themselves regarding this issue. The 6th Pay Commission has recommended that the scheme that grants performance and talent based incentives to Central Government employees could be implemented. The recommendations of the previous Pay Commission were adopted by the previous Government at policy-level. Officials of the DoP&T will soon be meeting with Narendra Modi and explaining the situation to him. During this meeting, if Modi gives his assent, then a detailed guideline will be prepared soon after. A guideline has already been prepared in this regard during the previous Government’s tenure. Suitable changes and additions will be made to this in order to incorporate the recommendations and suggestions given by Modi.
