Brief of the 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

Sub: Brief of the 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

The first meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held today under the Chairmanship of Secretary(P), Government of India, to discuss the issue of calculation of Disability Pension for Defence Forces Personnel as per recommendations of the 7th CPC, which was attended by the Member Staff Railway Board and the Secretaries from other departments of the Government of India.


AIRF was represented by the undersigned and Com. J.R. Bhosale, Treasurer AIRF while Army personnel were represented by the officials of all the three wings of the defence. At the outset, I urged upon the Secretary(DoP&T), to frame the definition of the “Anomaly”, which has been already demanded by the Staff Side, NC/JCM.

This is in respect of report of the VII CPC, which has granted slab system on Disability Pension for the Defence Personnel, which was far short of the existing disability pension for the army officers. We explained the life of the army personnel and their cases of disability in the enemies’ action.

After threadbare discussions we urged upon the Official Side to see that there is no drop in the disability pension for any of the categories of the army personnel and paramilitary forces, rather they should be well compensated for their best they are giving for defending our motherland.

1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee

The 1st meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held on 01.12.2016 on the anomaly of calculation of the disability pension for Defence Forces Personnel as per the recommendations of the 7th CPC. The representative of the Armed Forces made a presentation in the meeting demanding that the recommendations of the 7th CPC to grand disability pension on a slab system if implemented will lead to an anomaly between the civilian side and the Defence Forces Personnel because the civilian side will continue to be governed under a percentage based system. After studying the presentation, the Staff Side of NC-JCM has suggested that the slab system will be beneficial to the lower Rank personnel and hence both the slab system and percentage system may be accepted by the Govt. on an optional basis, alternatively the slab amount recommended by 7th CPC can be increased to avoid the anomalous situation. Secretary (P) informed that the issue would be further studied in consultation with CGDA.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Encouraging usage of Debit Cards among Government employees

In the recent years advancements in banking technology, progress in mobile banking and innovative technologies to facilitate digital payments have enabled large number of small denomination transactions to be handled smoothly in electronic mode. The Government of India has taken policy decisions encouraging cashless/electronic transactions.

2. In its endeavour on moving towards electronic payments, Central Government Ministries/Departments have been crediting the salary and other payments for the majority of its employees electronically, direct into the designated bank accounts of the employees. Given the progress made in banking technology, it is assumed that each employee would be in possession of a Debit/ATM card linked to his/her bank account. Ensuring and encouraging government employees to maximise the usage of Debit cards for personal related transactions instead of cash would go a long way serving with the employees serving as ‘ambassadors’ for the digital push and also motivate, encourage the general public in taking up the cause.

3. All Ministries/Departments are requested to encourage their employees to make use of Debit Cards for personal related transactions instead of cash Ministries/Departments should liaise with their accredited banks and set up special camps to facilitate obtaining of and ensure that all its employees are in possession of Debit Cards. Ministries/Departments may also issue similar advisories to their attached/subordinate offices, PSI’s, Autonomous Bodies etc.

Withdrawal of Legal Tender from SBNs: RBI cautions against Information received on Unsecured/Unofficial Channels

In the wake of withdrawal of legal tender character from the Specified Bank Notes (SBNs), the Reserve Bank of India has, from time to time, been issuing instructions to the banks which are sent directly to banks through an official mail. These are also placed on the Reserve Bank’s official website (https://www.rbi.org.in).

It has been reported that certain guidelines/instructions purported to be issued by the Reserve Bank are being circulated in the social media by some unscrupulous elements creating confusion in the minds of the public/bank personnel.
Banks and members of the public are, therefore, cautioned to be guided by only those instructions which are either uploaded on the Reserve Bank’s official website (https://www.rbi.org.in/) or received through the Reserve Bank’s official mail.

The banks and members of the public are advised that they should not rely on other unsecured/ unofficial channels like social media in which the authenticity of the documents circulated is questionable and not verifiable.
