4% of 7th CPC Basic Pay as DA from Jan 2017

4% of 7th CPC Basic Pay as DA from Jan 2017

“The central cabinet has given its approval for issuing additional Dearness Allowance of 2% from July 1, 2017 onwards.”

Including the additional 2% DA announced earlier by the Central Government, DA will be 4% of the 7th CPC basic pay from Jan 2017 for Central Govt employees.

With the Confederation of Central Government employees announced a nationwide day-long strike on 16th March 2017, the government announced an additional Dearness Allowance of 2 percent a day before on 15th March 2017.

The employees believe that the announcement was made much earlier. Even last year, the cabinet issued its approval for the second installment of July only on October 27. The Ministry of Finance issued the Government Order on November 4. But this time, in an unexpected and surprising move, the Dearness Allowance is announced much before its due time. The payment of Dearness Allowance will be issued to all categories of Central Government employees only after the Ministry of Finance issues an Office Memorandum.

The orders will be issued very soon by the Finance Ministry..!

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Simplification of procedure for payment of Central Government Employees  Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues – regarding

It has been brought to the notice of this Department that in a number of cases delay occurs in payment of Ccntral Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) dues, owing to missing entries, despite the fact that a provision has made for making entries of subscription for CGEGIS, recovered from pay & allowances every year in Part- VII-C of the service book.

2. In terms of para 8.1 Of the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme, 1980, as contained in this O.M. No. F.7(5)-EV/89 dated 15th May, 1989, which relates to Savings Fund of the Scheme, the total accumulation of savings together with interest thereon will be payable to the member on retirement or on cessation of his employment with the Central Government or to his family on his death while in service. The total accumulation under Savings Fund is provided for in terms of the applicable Table of Benefits pertaining to a particular year as prescribed under the relevant Orders issued by this Ministry from time to time.

3. The issue has been considered in consultation with Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare and Controller General of Accounts. It has been decided that in order to ease the process of payment of Savings Fund on account of CGEGIS at the time of retirement Of a Central Government employee, in all cases where the service of the retiring Central Government employee has been verified, payment of the accumulation under Savings Fund of CGEGIS be made without awaiting confirmation of deduction of each monthly subscription of CGEGIS, as service verification is carried out based on the monthly salary payment and the CGEGIS subscriptions are mandatory deductions from these payments.

4. All Ministries/ Departments are accordingly advised to ensure compliance of above instructions so that the dues of CGEGIS in respect Of Government servants retiring on attaining the age of superannuation are discharged with due promptness. Further, it may be ensured that Ministries/ Departments send their budget requirements for payments under CGEGIS to CCA (Finance) well in advance, preferably, at the time of RE/ BE so that the budget under this head is made on a realistic basis.

Cabinet approved for opening of 50 new KV Schools under Civil and Defence Sector in the country

Boost to Education: Cabinet approves setting up of 50 New Kendriya Vidyalayas in the country under Civil / Defence Sector

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs,chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the proposal for opening of 50 new Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) under Civil / Defence Sector in the country keeping in view the high demand for these schools for their quality of education and excellent results.

The total project cost based on KendriyaVidyalayaSangathan (KVS) norms for the proposed 50 new KVs is Rs.1160 crore.

New KVs will be opened from classes I to V for which 650 regular posts shall be created in all 50 KendriyaVidyalayas. The school grows every year with addition of one more higher class and, when the school grows upto class XII and becomes a full fledged school with two sections in each class, there shall be a requirement of about 4000 regular posts of various categories i.e., about 2900 teaching posts and about 1100 non-teaching posts. These new KVs when fully functional will provide quality education to approximately 50,000 students in addition to the approximately 12 lakh students already studying in present KVs.

The new KVs will address the educational needs of eligible students with high quality standards and will play a role of pace-setting educational institutions in the districts concerned.

Background:

The main objective of KVS is to cater to the educational needs of children of transferable Central Government employees including Defence and Para-military personnel by providing a common programme of education. There are at present 1142 functional KendriyaVidyalayas under the KVS including three abroad at Moscow, Kathmandu and Tehran.

The KendriyaVidyalayas are considered as model schools in the country in terms of physical infrastructure, teaching resources, curriculum and academic performance. KendriyaVidyalayas as pace setting schools have consistently turned out excellent academic performance as is evident from the Board Results of Class X and XII exams conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
