Dated 27.02.17

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers – Reg.

DoP&T has been receiving many references from various Ministries/ Departments seeking clarification on the issue of grant of bunching to Assistant Section Officers of Central Secretariat Service in terms of Department of Expenditure’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

It has also been noticed that there have been divergent views on the matter that while some Ministries/ Departments have given the benefit on their own, some other Ministries/ Departments have sought clarifications on various issues they are facing while giving the benefit of bunching in terms of DoE’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

3. The matter has been taken up for further clarifications with Establishment Division/ Department of Expenditure briefly on the following issues:

i. While the Seventh Pay Commission had not prescribed different modes of pay fixation for Direct Recruit (DR) and Promotee ASOs, there have been two different modes of pay fixation for DR and Promotees prior to implementation of Seventh pay Commission. Due to differential methods of pay fixation, required differential of 3% is not calculable based on seniority alone as the other relevant facts of being DR/ Promotee comes into play here.

ii) The manner of different pay fixation for DR ASO and promotee Assistants has been challenged in various court cases (viz. OA No.2147/2015, OA No. 150/2016, OA No. 1015/2013 and OA No.476/2015 etc.)

4. It has already been decided to consult Department of Expenditure through Establishment (Pay) in the matter and same is under examination. Therefore, to ensure uniform implementation of Department of Expenditure’s instruction, all the Ministries/ Departments are advised to wait for further instructions with regard to grant of bunching benefits to ASOs of CSS and also if orders have already been issued by any Ministry/Department, the same may not be given effect till further instructions.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

Merger of Associate Banks with SBI - Immediate Jobs to be done - AIBEA

Merger of Associate Banks with SBI - Immediate Jobs to be done - AIBEA

Closure of Associate Banks – Immediate Jobs to be done – AIBEA
CIRCULAR LETTER No. 28/9/2017/10
24-2-2017
TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS/STATE FEDERATIONS/
SSBEA/OUR UNIONS IN ASSOCIATE BANKS & SBI

Dear Comrades,
• Government’s Gazette Notification on closure of Associate Banks and merger with SBI

Notwithstanding the fact that merger of Associate Banks with SBI is unwarranted and avoidable and despite all our protests, campaign and public/political opinion, the Government has gone ahead and typical of this Government’s commitment to banking reforms, they have now gazette the Notification on closure of the 5 well-run Associate Banks and their merger with SBI with effect from 1-4-2017.

At this juncture it is very important to take care of the interests of our members in the Associate Banks who have always held the flag of AIBEA very high against all provocations and challenges. It is important to ensure their job continuity, job protection, besides taking care of their service conditions, trade union rights, etc.

During the founding years of AIBEA, SBI (Imperil Bank) employees were an integral part of AIBEA but later they went out of AIBEA in 1953 due to certain differences. Even after that there have been AIBEA unions in SBI but there has not been any significant membership.

However, after the forced merger of State Bank of Indore, we now have our unit in SBI viz. All India SBI Employees Association. In terms of their Rules and Bye Laws, all our Unions in Associate Banks can also be part of it and hence, as decided by us, our 5 Unions in the Associate Banks will now be affiliated to AISBIEA. Thus our AIBEA Unit in SBI i.e. AISBIEA will now have a membership of around 50,000 employees.

Our priority task now is to ensure the protection of interest of our members in the new set up. We have to re-structure our unions in the changed set-up. For this, our meeting of SSBEA/AISBIEA/Associate Bank unions is being held at Bhopal on 11th March.

In the meantime, the following steps are required to be taken by us:
1. Our existing unions (SBTEU, SBHSA, SMBEU, AISBPEF, and AISBBJECC) are to submit a letter to AISBIEA seeking formal affiliation.
2. Taking efforts to safeguard the jobs, job security, service conditions, and trade union rights of our employees/unions in Associate Banks in post-merger scenario.
3. All State Federations to immediately organise Conventions/meetings of our members in Associate Banks.
4. An interim Adhoc body should be formed consisting of our units in Associate Banks and SBI in every State.
5. VRS is likely to be announced shortly for the Associate Bank employees. We should advice our members not to yield to any pressures to leave the jobs.
6. Any issue confronting the members in the Associate Banks on account of the merger should be dealt by our State Federations in consultation with AIBEA/AISBIEA.
7. Further guidelines will be given in due course looking to developments.

All our State Federations are requested to move in the matter and act swiftly.

With greetings,

Yours comradely,
C.H. VENKATACHALAM

Cabinet Decision on 7th CPC Allowances only after 11th March 2017 


"Retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances - COC Karnataka".

Allowances
Comrades,
The media is debating that the allowances committee headed by Shri Ashok Lavasa Finance Secretary has submitted its report to the Hon’ble Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyji on 22nd or not. Comrades as you aware that this committee period has expired on 22nd February 2017, the question is that even if it has submitted its report to the Hon’ble Finance Minister Arun Jaitleyji it is confidential document all media creation on the HRA rates are not be believed, the actual truth will be known only after the assembly elections results of five states which will be declared on March 11.

The past experience is that even if the committee decides positively the union cabinet had turn down the recommendations of the committee, hence speculation is not correct, only after the union cabinet approves the recommendations of the committee, the new orders is issued.

The main demands of the CG employees is retention of the rates of HRA and date of effect of allowances should be from 1st January 2016 and revision of rates of Transport allowances, OTA and NDA apart from retention of many of the allowances.

Comrades instead of speculation it would be better we focus on the 16th March 2017 strike, which would put pressure on the Central Government to yield to our charter of demands.

Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary

Tomorrow All India Bank Strike - AIBEA & AIBOA

Joint Circular on Strike
CIRCULAR TO ALL UNITS & MEMBERS 
February 26, 2017
Dear Comrades,

MAKE 28TH FEBRUARY ALL INDIA STRIKE A TOTAL SUCCESS

We are sure that all efforts are being taken by all our units in all the States and in every Bank to make the UFBU’s call for All India Strike on 28th February, 2017 a total success. In the light of the increasing attacks on account of the Government’s anti-public sector policies, defending public sector banking is very important. Fighting back all attempts to privatise the PSBs is a paramount duty.

When Banks are facing challenges, Government has announced recapitalization of just Rs. 10,000 crores in this year’s Budget. This means that either the business of the banks will get choked or Banks will be compelled to tap private capital from the market thus diluting public sector character.

We have seen how the Government is bulldozing all protests and opposition by issuing Gazette notification on merger of 5 Associate Banks with SBI unmindful of its adverse implications.

Similarly, while bad loans are bulging every quarter without any let up, no stringent measures are being taken to recover the NPAs but efforts are afoot to float a Bad Bank to whitewash the books of the Banks and to conceal and camouflage bad loans from public attention.

Instead of filling up the vacancies of employees and officers with permanent staff, every effort is being made to outsource regular jobs aimed at crude exploitation of the unemployed youth. There are intensified proposals to amend all labour laws to suit the employers and private corporates.

Even on the issues and demands pertaining to employees and officers, the Government’s attitude is negative and managements’ approach is also casual.

When the whole country had witnessed the outstanding work done by the employees and officers during the post-demonetisation rush period in the branches by working day and night, even the compensation to be paid to the staff is not paid in full. There are many other important issues which are being ignored by the management and the Government.

Hence, UFBU has given the call for this All India Strike. 

Conciliation meeting on 21st February by CLC: Based on the strike notice served by UFBU on IBA, the Chief Labour Commissioner of the Central Government had called for a conciliation meeting at Delhi on 21st instant. In this meeting the Finance Ministry and IBA did not take any initiative to resolve the demands and hence it was decided to go ahead with the strike. The CLC advised the Finance Ministry and IBA to initiate the dialogue with the UFBU for amicable settlement of issues, so that proposed strike is averted.

IBA’s negative stand: In view of this advice of the CLC, the IBA reluctantly wrote to UFBU offering to hold a discussion but on the condition that the strike should be withdrawn first. UFBU replied that meeting can be held before the strike and if solutions are worked out, strike can be avoided. But IBA deliberately insisted on their stand and thus thwarted any discussions with UFBU.

Make the strike a total success: The only way we can respond to this negative attitude of IBA-Government combine is to make the strike a massive success with all our unity and strength.

Instructions:
  •  All our units should ensure that all our members participate in the strike enthusiastically.
  • All our members should be mobilised to participate in all the rallies, demonstrations being organised at the respective centres.
  • United Forum of RRB Unions has also given the call for strike in all the RRBs.
  • All India Co-op. Bank Employees Federation has also given the call and hence all employees and officers in the Co-op. Banks will also participate in the strike.
  • Reports should be sent by all our Unions to us about the observance of the strike, participation of our members in the progrmames, etc.

Yours comradely,

7th CPC Allowance Committee Report Submitted to the Govt or not?

with 0 Comment
7th CPC Allowance Committee Report Submitted to the Govt or not?

Was the 7th CPC Allowance Committee Report submitted to the government as early as February 22?

A high-level committee, under the chairmanship of Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa was constituted by the Central Government to review the Seventh Pay Commission’s recommendations regarding the allowances being given to the Central Government employees. According to information, the committee had already submitted its report on February 22.

Irrespective of who possesses the report now – the committee or the government – what is more intriguing is the recommendations that it contains.

One could see that the 7th Pay Commission suggested either rationalization or simplification at many places. An example is the Pay Matrix Table, which has now brought the entire Pay Structure of more than 35 lakh employees under one Table. Although there are some anomalies, the system has dramatically simplified the process of annual increment calculation and also pay fixation on Promotion or MACP.

At present 196 different kinds of allowances are being given to the Central Government employees. Some modifications have been recommended in these too as part of the rationalization and simplification drive. The Seventh Pay Commission has recommended the abolition of 52 allowances.  And another 36 allowances have been abolished as separate identities, but subsumed either in an existing allowance or in newly proposed allowances.

The Commission said that the entire range of allowances is administered in broadly four ways. Fully DA indexed Allowances, Partially or Semi DA  indexed Allowances, No DA indexation Allowances and Percentage based Allowances. House Rent Allowance is being under the category of Percentage based Allowances. The Commission also said that the compensation towards the housing needs of Central Government employees is covered in many ways. The Commission finally suggested that  the percentage based allowances by a factor of 0.8, the Commission recommends that HRA should be rationalized to 24 percent, 16 percent and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively.

The big irritation, or rather disappointment to the Central Government employees was the recommendation to reduce the percentage of House Rent Allowance (HRA).

All trade unions have expressed their harsh opposition to the proposed cuts in HRA. The Central Government employees’ Federations also expressed their disappointment through various protest. Finally the Central Government accepted to constitute a high level committee to examine the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission regarding Allowances.

Now, sources claim that the committee has already submitted its report to the government.


Sources Confirmed Allowance Committee Report Submitted

with 2 comments
Sources Confirmed Allowance Committee Report Submitted
One of the NJCA leader, On Condition of Anonymity, told that the committee constituted to examine the allowance has finalized its reports and submitted it to the Government on 22nd February 2017.

On asking whether the NJCA knew the details of the committee report, he said that they were not provided with the committee report. But the committee has informed them that their demand on allowance would be considered favorably.

Hence it is expected the HRA will be retained in old rates (Sixth CPC rates) from the beginning itself and will be paid in 7th CPC Pay Scale when revised allowances come into effect. However, the news of revised allowances would be implemented with effect from 1.4.2017 is not reliable. NJCA will not accept this and clearly said that it should be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016 retrospectively.

X cities- 30%
Y cities- 20%
Z cities- 10%

Transport Allowance may be split into two elements as CCA and TA as it was paid in fifth CPC. The Rates will be delinked from DA and will Fixed in slab rates.

The Government will announce its decision over the committee report after the last phase of state elections ie after 8th March 2017.

Central Government Issues Notification On Associate Banks and Merger With SBI - AIBEA

with 0 Comment
Government issues Gazette Notification On closure of Associate Banks and Merger with SBI w.e.f. 1st April, 2017.

CIRCULAR No. 28/5/2017/5 
23-2-2017
TO ALL UNITS AND MEMBERS:
Dear Comrades,

Government issues Gazette Notification
On closure of Associate Banks and
Merger with SBI w.e.f. 1st April, 2017.
Protecting our members in the Associate Banks – need of the hour
Clarion call from AIBEA’s All India SBI Emp. Association

Our units and members are aware of our prolonged and principled opposition to the process of consolidation and merger of Associate Banks with SBI. There have been innumerable struggles and strike actions on this issue in the last more than a decade. Especially, when there were attempts to close the remaining 5 Associate Banks for merger with SBI, there have been very intensified agitations and progrmames. Our units and members in the Associate Banks have also led many struggles including number of strike actions.

There have been nationwide campaign on this issue because the move to close down the Associate Banks was totally unwarranted, rather there was a genuine need to delink these Banks from SBI and make them autonomous. For a long time, these Banks have been subjugated to the total whims of SBI and hence the real growth of the Associate Banks was in fact thwarted. Many Banks which were smaller in size than these Associate Bank have grown much bigger now. But our demand for delinking Associate Banks from SBI was deliberately ignored and played down by the successive Governments.

However, in the name of Banking sector reforms, privatisation and consolidation have continued to be their agenda and as a part of it, the Associate Banks have been their target. Making SBI a global player has been their fanciful idea notwithstanding the fact that it is neither prudent nor required for Indian situation. Ignoring all our viewpoints, opposition of various political parties, etc. the Government has gone ahead with their decision and after giving final Cabinet clearance few days ago, have now notified the merger with SBI w.e.f. 1st April, 2017.

With this development and reality, the need has now arisen to take all efforts to protect the interests of our membership in the Associate Banks. AIBEA’s union in SBI: Our units are aware that already we have our union in SBI viz. ALL INDIA STATE BANK OF INDIA EMPLOYEES ASSOCIATION.

It has been decided that all our units and members in SBT, SBM, SBBJ, SBH and SBP will be affiliated to this union and thus we will have a stronger AISBIEA with nearly 50,000 members all over the country under the banner of AIBEA. It will be the biggest bankwise Union under the banner of AIBEA.

AISBIEA is shortly meeting to decide on all further steps to consolidate our organisation in the changed scenario after the merger with SBI and to take all steps to protect the interests of our members in the Associate Banks so that no injustice will be done to our members in any manner consequent to the merger.

With greetings,
Yours comradely,

There being banks holidays on account of Maha Shivaratri (24th February, 2017) at many places, 4th Saturday (25th February, 2017) and Sunday (26th February, 2017), Hence, salary e-payment files processed on PFMS/COMPACT should be uploaded today i.e. 23rd February, 2017 with NPB of 27th February, 2017. If such files have already been uploaded with NPB of 28th February, 2017 the same also would need to be changed to facilitate payment of salaries on 27th February, 2017.
