Uniform Fitment Factor recommended by 7th Pay Commission

with 1 comment
Uniform Fitment Factor recommended by 7th Pay Commission

The existing PB-1, this index is 2.57, increasing to 2.62 for personnel in PB-2 and further to 2.67 from PB-3. The rationalised entry pay so arrived has been used in devising the new pay matrix.

The 7th Pay Commission recommended uniform fitment factor for all group of Central Government employees. The commission says that the fitment recommended by the VI CPC was in the form of grade pay. Any inconsistency in the computation of grade pay or in the spacing between pay bands has a direct bearing on the quantum of fitment benefit. Therefore, these issues have also been raised by numerous stakeholders. It has been demanded by a majority of the stakeholders that there should be a single fitment factor which should be uniformly applied for all employees.

7th Pay Commission Report : More flaws than plus points

The much-awaited 7th Pay Commission report was submitted to the government last Thursday. The 900-page long report was perused swiftly within a day or two and criticisms have already started coming.

The very next day of submitting the report, M. Krishnan, the Confederation Secretary, gave a scathing criticism. “No other Pay Commission had submitted such a terrible report,” he said. At the very beginning of the press release, he had mentioned that the backward mindset of the recommendations of the Pay Commission have been a huge disappointment for the Central Government employees.

7th Pay Commission recommendations on LTC advance and Medical Advance

Abolishing 12 Interest free advances recommended by 7th CPC

The 7th Pay Commission has , in a casual manner, recommended that all interest free advances to be abolished. The impact of this recommendation is yet un noticed by the central government employees

There are 12 Interest free advances are listed in that table provided in the 7th CPC Report. When hearing the news that 7th cpc has recommended to abolish interest free advances , every body thought that some advances like festival advances only will be abolished. But if you read the names of advances recommended for abolishment, it will give you little bit shock.

In general opinion, the amount that is paid for government servants in some occasions and for specific purposes and the same will be recovered through monthly instalments are considered advances.

7TH PAY COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION

LDC-UDC ISSUE - GOVERNMENT STAND REITERATED

On the issue of LDC/UDC 7th Pay Commission reiterated the deceiving stand of the Government. Despite of realizing the issue as genuine, Government had not taken a positive decision at their level. The tens of thousands of LDC & UDC, solely responsible for the smooth running of many of the subordinate offices, were hoping that 7th Pay Commission will study the problem faced by them and take a positive decision. Staff Side JCM having convinced the importance of the issue, had also recommended merger & upgradation of the Grade Pay of LDC & UDC to Rs. 2800. But here we see that 7th Pay Commission has not taken any decision on the issue except giving some confusing and misleading statements to vindicate the stand taken by the Government as true. Extracts of some of their views on LDC UDC issue spread over various chapters of the reports is given below:

7th CPC Pension Calculation : Fixation for Pre-2016 Pensioners

The 7th Pay Commission has recommended the fixation of pension for civil employees including CAPF personnel, who have retired before 01.01.2016, given two formulations with illustrations for fixing of pension. One for the pensioners retired before 2016 and another one is for the pensioners retired before 2006.

And also recommended, the first formulation of fixing the pension may take a little time since the records of each pensioner will have to be checked to ascertain the number of increments earned in the retiring level. The first instance the revised pension may be calculated as in the second formulation and the same may be paid as an interim measure. In the event calculation as per the formulation of fixing the pension yields a higher amount the difference may be paid subsequently.

And one more important recommendation of option given to the pensioners for choosing whichever is beneficial to them.

7th CPC Report needs changes

Comrades,
The 7th CPC has submitted its report to the Government of India and the expectations of the employees of the Central Government are not in lines of the recommendations of the 7th CPC at many places the existing allowances have been decreased or abolished totally.  The rate of HRA is also reduced to 24% , 16 and 9%.  

The main demands of the employees are not considered which include five promotions scheme. Only positive in these reports are parity in pension, retention of DA formula and removal of grade pay system.  The same amount of transport allowance and tour TA/DA is existing; here also there is no change.

Kejriwal demands OROP to be implemented in its true essence

“Despite the fact that OROP has crossed two stages, protests by army veterans continue in New Delhi. The centre has made official announcements regarding OROP, but protests are continuing demanding the annual revision of pension.”

Equal pension for all ex-servicemen is the most important goal of the OROP scheme. This can be achieved only if pension is revised based solely on the rank and years of service, once every year. Pension revision once every five years is unacceptable. This is the bone of contention for the continuing protests.

One Rank One Pension : Notification for Implementation of OROP Issued

with 14 comments
Notification for Implementation of OROP Issued

The Government today issued the notification regarding implementation of ‘One Rank One Pension’ in respect of Defence Forces personnel.

Defence Forces of India have a rich history and tradition of bravery and gallantry. Defence forces have not only defend our borders with exemplary courage and valour but have also performed with fearless attitude and empathy in natural calamities and other trying circumstances. Government of India recognizes and respects their contribution.

The issue of One Rank One Pension was a long standing demand. Defence Forces had been demanding it for almost four decades but the issue could not be resolved. However, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had made a commitment to implement it for the welfare of the ex-servicemen. Accordingly the Government had announced modalities for implementation of OROP on 05.09.2015. The Government Order by Ministry of Defence, which could not be issued due to model code of conduct, has been issued today.

Salient features of the OROP as stated in the Order are as follows:

“Expected DA Jan 2016” gets carefully scrutinized by the 7th Pay Commission

"This time, it is not just the employees, but the members of the 7th Pay Commission too who are very eager to know about the Dearness Allowance from January 2016. "

'Expected DA January 2016' has the honour of making not just the Central Government employees and pensioners curious; it has even got the 7th Pay Commission on the list of eagerly waiting audience.

It is a well-known fact that Central Government employees love to read all kinds of information, analyses, orders, and predictions about the Dearness Allowance. Here are our fact- and trend-based predictions for the additional Dearness Allowance which will be announced from 01.01.2016. 

Calculation of DA : The Government of India presently calculates the level of inflation for purposes of grant of dearness allowance to Central Government Employees on the basis of the All India Consumer Price index Number for Industrial Workers (2001=100) (AICPI). The twelve monthly average of the AICPI (2001 base) as on 1st January and 1st July of each year is used for calculating the Dearness Allowance (DA).

Complaints of pre-2006 retirees to be settled before implementing the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations

with 17 comments
Complaints of pre-2006 retirees to be settled before implementing the 7th Pay Commission recommendations

“Since the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are to be implemented soon, priority will be given to settle all the regularizing revison of pension for the pre-2006 pensioners, and clear them.”

Recently, the Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO) had sent an official memorandum to all the Central Civil Pensioners Associations.

It was mentioned in the order that rapid action is being taken to revising the pension from 1.1.2006 and settle the pension-related issues of Central Government employees who had retired prior to 2006. Despite this, considerable number of pension cases of still pending for revision of pension have not yet been dealt with.

Some important information is required to make these revisions of pension. Due to non-availability of information like the pensioner’s last pay drawn, basic pay and scale, qualifying service, date of birth, date of demise, pension account number, and phone number, the work remains incomplete.

As per the 6th Pay Commission, pensions of all those employees who had retired before 2006 were revised from 01.01.2006 onwards, and a Ready Reckoner was sent to all the banks in order to calculate their pension. “7th Pay Commission soon to be implemented, to settle all these pending cases before so that while implementing the recommendations of 7th pay commission, pension may be revised expeditiously. we request your cooperation to ensure that the benefits reach all the pensioners without any delay,” the letter to the associations said.

Can the Seventh Pay Commission recommend the lowering of retirement age for Central Government employees?

Can the 7th Pay Commission recommend the lowering of retirement age for Central Government employees?

“The unconfirmed information says that the 7th Pay Commission is planning to bring about a dramatic change in the retirement age of Central Government employees.”

Yet another news story about the retirement age of Central Government employees surfaced yesterday. The reputed English news website of India Today featured a special article yesterday about the 7th Central Pay Commission. In the article, the 7th Pay Commission is likely to reduce the retirement age to 55 or on the completion of 33 years, whichever comes first.

This has raised the question in the minds of many if the Pay Commission has the authority to recommend the reducing of retirement age.

Removal of Grade Pay System in 7th Pay Commission – A detailed report

Will the removal of Grade Pay System by the 7th Pay Commission help Central Government employees? – This is the topic of this article.

“Unconfirmed reports say that the 7th Pay Commission is very likely to recommend the abolishing of the Grade Pay System introduced by the 6th Pay Commission.”

Not only the Government, but the Central Government employees too are hoping and wishing that the 7th Pay Commission functions independently, free from interventions. The report of the previous Pay Commissions will guide for determining the revision of pay scale and pay bands, allowances, retirement benefits and other facilities/benefits of more than 50 lakh employees. The Pay Commission also considers the recommendations, suggestions and inputs gathered from employees all over the country and presented as memorandums by federations like the NC JCM and the Confederation.

Aadhaar number made compulsory in all government service records

with 1 comment
Aadhaar number made compulsory in all government service records

The Central Government had issued the following orders from time to time regarding aading the Aadhaar number in Service Reocords of Central Government Employees.

The Honourable Supreme Court of India had already clarified that Aadhaar numbers cannot be made compulsory for Indian citizens. But the Centre had argued that Aadhaar numbers are necessary for its welfare schemes. The case is pending in the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, without declaring that Aadhaar numbers are compulsory for all, the central government has made it compulsory for enjoying the various benefit schemes that are being offered. This has led to a debate if the centre is indirectly twisting the arms of the citizens to obtain the Aadhaar number.

One Rank One Pension : Why not immediately notify the OROP for family pensioners and POTSs?

OROP News : WHY NOT IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY THE OROP FOR FAMILY PENSIONERS & POTOs?

We might have all read an article couple of days ago appeared in Business Standard newspaper indicating that the due to weak financial position, the union government is mulling with the idea of pushing the implementation of OROP to next fiscal year, which means the implementation might be delayed at least by 5-6 months.

In my personal opinion both the previous and present governments have mishandled the OROP issue and they have perhaps failed to understand the real issues involved in their proper perspective. As suggested in my previous write up if the government would have chosen to introduce an element of age on retirement, in OROP, the expenditure on account of OROP would be less than half the currently estimated expenditure of 8300 crores per annum.
