HRA 30% , 27% or 24% ? All eyes on cabinet meet tomorrow

with 0 Comment
7th Pay Commission: Latest news on HRA, DA and arrears

The wait to get clarity on allowances like House Rent Allowance (HRA) and Dearness Allowance (DA) under the 7th Pay Commission may  be over on Wednesday as the Cabinet is likely to convene a meeting and announce its decision. 

One crore Central Government employees and pensioners are waiting for news on their arrears and allowances like HRA and DA. 

The 7th Pay Commission had recommended HRA too be fixed at 24%, 16% and 8% depending on the cities employees work in. 

However, employees were not happy with this increase and demanded 30%, 24% and 16% HRA. 

The Committee on Allowances that FM Jaitley set up last year under leadership of Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa submitted its reported earlier this year and suggested HRA to be fixed at between 25% and 27%. 

Although the HRA recommended by Committee on Allowances is higher than the one given by 7th Pay Commission, it is still lower than what the employees demanded. 

Under the 7th Pay Commission, nearly 200 allowances have been subsumed into a smaller batch.

There has been considerable delay on the allowances front of the 7th Pay Commission as the Empowered Committee of Secretaries submitted its report to FM Jaitley on June 1, 2017.

Revitalisation of Army Base Workshops – BPMS

Revitalisation of Army Base Workshops – BPMS
REF: BPMS/ MoD / EME / 186 (8/1/R)
Dated: 21.06.2017
To
The Secretary,
Ministry of Defence,
Government of India
South Block,
New Delhi – 110 011

Sub :- Revitalisation of Army Base Workshops.

Sir,
This Federation has been receiving regular inputs regarding deteriorating conditions of the Army Base Workshops, non-availability of spares on time, huge backlog in repairs and overhaul of vehicles and equipments.

In view of the above, as a responsible, recognised Federation of Defence Civilians, we felt it necessary to study the issue and bring forward certain salient aspects to your kind notice for remedial measures.

There are eight Army Base Workshops, of which seven are responsible for repair and overhaul of equipment/ weapons and one workshop has been tasked with the responsibility of indigenisation and manufacture of spares.

The Indian Army has a large inventory of weapon systems and equipment which need to be maintained and sustained in battle worthy condition. The periodicity of overhauling an equipment is based on the maintenance philosophy promulgated at the time of induction for the envisaged life cycle.

As per doctrine published in 2014, the following is the intervention period for maintenance of Class “A” Vehicles.
** For equipment to serve beyond 35 years. Balance Equipment to undergo MR instead and de induct after 35 years
.
^^ Only for OH-2 equipment and service up to or beyond 40 years.

No overhaul policy for Scania, Kraz-255 B/B1 and Tatra T-815 is available and hence presently, Base workshops are accepting these vehicles of eight years vintage and above for overhaul as per the direction of EME Directorate.

124 numbers of Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun were inducted into the Army from 2004-05 onwards. The Tank is due for overhaul from 2020-21. However till date Overhaul agency has not been decided.

A total of 310 T-90 Tanks were initially imported from Russia through a contract signed with the OEM i.e. M/s Rosoboronexport (ROE) in February 2001 and inducted into service during 2001-05. These Tanks are due for overhaul from 2018-19 but till date Overhaul agency has not been decided.

Similarly, for Armoured Recovery Vehicles also, due to short sightness, overhaul plan and/or agency has not yet been decided.

The ARV VT-72 B is a recovery vehicle for Tank T-72. A total of 156 ARVs were procured from M/s Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) and inducted into service during the period 1994-2003. As per maintenance philosophy and intervention norms, 129 vehicles inducted up to 2001 were due for overhaul during 2010-15. However, even after 20 years of the induction of the vehicle, no overhaul facility had been created.

Similarly ARV WZT-3 is a recovery vehicle of latest technology available in Indian Army for Tank T-72. During the years 2001-07, 352 ARV WZT-3 were inducted into service through Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML). The equipment were due for overhaul from 2016-17 onwards. However, facility for overhaul has not yet been created.

Project Tulip for establishment of additional facilities at 512 ABW as a nucleus for repairs/overhaul of communication and night vision devices for BMP II/ IIK is still pending since 2003.

A whole lot of examples can be cited to substantiate the assertions that a section of Officials are deliberately trying to destabilise the Army Base Works.

On the other hand, as per the Offsets Policy, a large number of potential Private Sector companies are planning to deploy their offsets obligation in the Maintenance, Overhaul and Repair business due to guaranteed business.

This Federation has therefore viewed the inaction as stated above very seriously and demand that the Army Base Works be revitalised and all pending decisions such as creation of facilities for overhauling of MBT Arjun, T-90, ARVs etc be taken immediately. This will not only assure workmen of the seriousness of the government to protect the workshops, but is also in National Interest.

An early action in the matter is solicited please.

Thanking You,

Yours Truly,

(5) All other conditions as given in OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 1.9.2008, as amended from time to time shall remain unchanged.

(6) All pension disbursing authorities are therefore, requested to revise the pension/family pension in affected cases in terms of ibid circular. Payment made w.e.f. 01.01.2006 will be adjusted against the arrears now being paid and these cases may be reflected in the monthly account sent to this office as ‘change item’.

The undersigned is directed to say that in accordance with the instructions which existed before 31.03.1995, a Government servant, on absorption in a Public Sector Undertaking or an Autonomous Body, had the option to draw pro-rata gratuity and a lump sum amount in lieu of pension. The option regarding payment of lump sum amount in lieu of monthly pension on absorption in a PSU or autonomous body was available in terms of the instructions issued vide Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No.26(18)-E.V(B)/75 dated 08.04.1976, Department of Personnel & Training’s O.M. No.28016/5/85-Estt.(C) dated 31.01.1986 and Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare’ O.M.

No.4/43/88-P&PW(D) dated 16.10.1989. The terms and conditions for absorption of Government employees consequent on conversion of a Government Department into a PSU or autonomous body issued vide this Department’s O.M. No.4/18/87-P&PW(D) dated 5.7.1989 also provided for a similar option of lump sum payment in lieu of monthly pension.

2.

3. The option to draw a lump sum amount in lieu of pension was withdrawn vide this Department’s O.M. No. 4/42/91-P&PW(D) dated 31st March, 1995. Accordingly, the erstwhile Rule 37-A was omitted from the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972 vide Notification No. 4/42/91-P&PW(D) dated 25.06.1997.

4. In implementation of the Order dated 15.12.1995 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in WP(C) No. 11855/85, instructions were issued vide this Department’s O.M.

In this connection, attention is invited to‘ Para 1 and 9 of Annexure of DOP&T OM No.3534/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated 19th May 2009, which stipulates that“…..

However, past continuous regular service in another Government Department in a post carrying same grade pay prior to regular appointment in a new Department, without a break shall also
be counted towards qualifying regular service for the purpose of MACPs only( and not for the regular promotions). However, benefits under the MACPS in such cases shall be considered till the satisfactory completion of the probation period.…”

Further, it is also intimated that the matter was referred to DoPT, for treating AAO as fresh recruits after passing of SAS Part II Exams and it has been clarified by DOP&T that Departmental Examination is one of the fast track mode of promotion and the appointment on the base of Limited Departmental Examination cannot be treated as direct recruitment and the orders of C & AG dated 20.06.2016 is not consistent with the instructions of the Government. Further, DoPT has opined that treating AAO as a fresh recruits for the purpose of benefit of MACP will be violative of the provisions of RR.
