What is the first month salary of new Central Government employees?

“There is lot of curiosity among young job seekers to know the average first-month salaries of Central Government employees.”

There is no defying the fact that almost all Indian youth, who have completed their education, do dream of getting a CG employment. The perks are plenty – job stability, good pay, regular increments and countless benefits…!

In its report, the Seventh Pay Commission has said that while the CG should be employing about 40,48,707 workers to carry out its tasks, it currently has only about 33,01,536 persons working for them. In other words, as on January 1, 2014, there are about 7,47,171 vacancies in various CG departments.

According to data, there are 9,47,586 Central Government employees between the ages of 50 and 60. Since, on an average, about one lakh employees retire each year, it is easy to conclude that there is a steady requirement for employees in Central Government departments.

UPSC and SSC are two different bodies that conduct exams for recruitment to central government. Between January 2004 and 2014, about 11,13,329 employment orders have been issued for various Central Government posts.

Central Government employees are currently classified as A, B and C. The designation, basic salary and other benefits of an employee are calculated based on this classification. As of January 2014, there are 91,501 higher officials in Group A; 2,80,892 officials in Group B; and 29,29,143 employees in Group C. Rs. 1,29,599 crores was the money spent on giving pay and allowances to all these employees in the year 2012-13. This is about 1.30 percent of the country’s total GDP.

Central Government employees’ salaries and benefits are currently being paid as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. Rs. 18,000 is the minimum wages and Rs. 2,50,000 is the maximum wage that is being paid. The table below provides detailed list of the minimum and maximum wages of Central Government employees as per all the Pay Commissions – from the First to the Sixth.
The Sixth Pay Commission had fixed the salaries as per the Grade Pay System. The Seventh Pay Commission has calculated the salaries as per the Level System. The new job recruitment Notifications for Central Government vacancies now mention the Grade Pay(6th CPC) or Level (7th CPC). One can calculate the basic pay of an employee with the help of the table given below.
Calculations of Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance, and Transport Allowance are usually done based on the city where the employee is posted. A Central Government employee is entitled to many other benefits too. These are decided based on factors like designation, nature of the job, location, etc.

If you want to find out the first month salary for a job that you desire, and if you are aware of its Grade Pay or Level and the city where you are most likely to get posted, you can very easily find out the minimum monthly salary for the post.

“DOP&T OM No.36012/11/2016-Estt(res) Dt 30.09.2016 clearly indicates that the policy of effecting promotions to reserved categories persons to unreserved post is sub-judice in the Hon’ble Apex Court of India and till such time that the SLP’s are decided by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, while considering promotions, the DOP&T OM Dt 10.08.2010 and Railway Board circular No. 14.09.2010 on the subject reservation in promotion treatment of SC/ST candidates promoted on their own merit, are to be relied upon”.

It was mentioned that IR problems at RFI is creating severe discontentment among unions and employees. RFI management after the theft of some pistol components have arrested the concerned people but imposed restriction on unions. Works Committee Society members etc and total activities of welfare matters have been stopped. The production is not very appreciable the targets are far below than the expected level. RFI management instead of concentrating on production productivity affairs they are only serious about distrubing the IR. This needs to be interfered for restoration of peace and of IR. Member WV&E & Chairman assured that is would be reviewed and settled and at the same time requested the Federation to advice the respective unions to extend the co-operation to the present General Manager who is retiring on 30.11.2017.

The Ordnance Factories had sanctioned posts for Direct Recruitment an Industrial and Non-Industrial category to each Ordnance Factories and the job is entrusted to OFRC. It was claimed although necessary written test have been conducted in respected of Group ‘C’ post in each Ordnance Factories but the results are abnormally delayed which raises apprehensions. The delay may lead to some kind of manipulations. The Staff side raised this issue and demanded to finalise without any further delay and time limit should be fixed after conducting the written examination. OFB assured necessary steps would be taken to release the results at the earliest.

Distance Education Diploma (Technical) obtained from various educational institutions were denied on the plea that these institutes are not recognised by AICTE. Recent judgement of Supreme
Court was issued.It was demanded that OFB should in consultation with AICTE and UGC needs to declare the institutes which are authorised to declare distance education diplams. Further the Diplomas already obtained from the Distance Education institution may be recognised for promotion purpose.

After raising the issue at MoD for lifting the ceiling of NDA i.e., Rs.12380/- (BP +DP on 6th CPC) was agreed and instruction were issued by OFB and CGDA on this issue. INDWF demanded OFB to issue necessary instructions notifying the categories both Non-Industrial Employees and NGO’s who are performing Night Duty in Ordnance Factories. Industrial Employees are fully eligible without ceiling, for Non-Industrial Employees and NGO’s they have assured on 21.11.2017 the notification was issued by OFB with the concurrence of PC of A (Fys) which has been uploaded in the Comnet of OFB. This may be downloaded from the comnet and claim is allowed to get the benefit even in the past.

Though MoD has already approved and granted 3% increment for MCM on their promotion to CM (Tech) having higher responsibility from Industrial to Supervisory post but the same has not been accepted by PC of A (Fys) yet, on the reasons that MCM is not the feeder category to Chargeman as per the existing SRO. After discussion PC of A (Fys) agreed to review and grant 3% increment for the promotee CM from MCM.

At present Overtime Allowance is being calculated based in the VI CPC pay scale due to the Overtime Allowance has not been granted on the VII CPC pay scale. It was raised in the meeting that even VI CPC pay scale the annual increments, promotional pay, MACP benefits on pay have not been taken into account for calculation of Overtime Allowance. The pay on 01.07.2016 is only taken for calculation of Overtime bacause PC of A (Fys) have made package on that day. It was demanded that the package is to be revised to add all this earning for calculation of Overtime Allowance as on accruing benefits PC of A (Fys) revise the package taking into account of all these earnings.

National Council JCM, Departmental Council JCM, OFB level JCM in all these forums Finance and Accounts official responsible for taking decisions are participating regularly, whereas in JCM IV level it has been informed by local union that the official from finance and accounts are not participating are they are deputing the auditors only who are not having any authority to take any decision. In this issue it was deliberated PC of A (Fys) agreed to issue necessary instruction to depute not less than Accounts officer.

The issue was discussed and demanded that the vacancies in the JCM are not filled for last 3 to 4 years. Therefore, it was demanded that the existing vacancies needs to be filled immediately. If there is any discrepancy of seniority in CM and also the senior people are left out, it can be considered for promoting through review DPC; because of discrepancy in seniority the total promotion should not be delayed. OFB agreed on 20.11.2017 and accordingly 1203 promotions have been effected/granted and the order has been issued on 21.11.2017. It was further discussed that Electrical and Clothing technology no promotions were ordered to JWM. It was requested that they may also be considered for promotion in order to maintain parity which can be adjusted in the future vacancies of JWM. This was agreed to reconsider.

In the absence of clarity after VII CPC for fixation benefit on promotion was not granted since DOP&T has issued necessary orders that provision of fixation of Pay under FR 22(a)(i)(a) existing. It was demanded that the provision of FR 22(a)(i)(a) for granting fixation of pay or promotion be implemented. OFB agreed to implement the same.

After VI CPC those who have been granted Rs.4200/- Grade Pay they were classified as Group ‘B’. Though their appointments are given by the General Manager as appointing authority by their disciplinary cases are being dealt by OFB and disposal of their Disciplinary cases are dealt by Chariman OFB. Since the number of persons are quite large and for dealing large number of cases of OFB. Since the number of persons are quite large and for dealing large number of cases by OFB takes lot of time and delay of disposal of cases makes more time. It was demanded by INDWF, the Chairman OFB should delegate power to Sr. General Manager / General Manager as disciplinary authority to handle the disciplinary cases at Factory level.

14) Regarding the declaring results of LDCE which was held in the year 2016 are not yet released because of pending Court Case at Madras CAT. The case will be expedited however OFB has clarified that to avoid litigation in the Direct Recruitment LDCE the answer key after examination will be declared in the public domain so that the candidates can verify the right answers and if any complaint is reported that would be rectified if found genuine. This practice is followed after this exercise only the results will be declared.

It was represented by INDWF that accumulation of leave upto 300 days for Industrial Employees was agreed by Government of India and orders were issued during November 2016. Whereas the disparity in respect of leave accumulation upto 315 days after June of every year is not allowed. This may be considered to include 15 days beyond 300 between July and December. This was agreed to reconsider.

The payment of Time wages for Piece workers between 44 ¾ and 48 hours ( 3 ¼ Hours) on Saturdays which was paid till March 2006 was stopped w.e.f. 01.04.2006. This needs to be restored justifying the reasons for payment of Time wages for Piece workers was submitted by the Staff side to JCM and was discussed. Two Sub-committees from Official side was formed, their reports are not in favour. Finance of OFB refused to recommend. Staff side jointly made a request; OFB should discuss in the Board meeting and may be forwarded to M of D despite finance refused. It was agreed by OFB to forward the proposal after duly approved in the Board meeting.

The issue of granting payment of incentive to Examiners at par with Maintenance workers i.e., 50% of the factory average who recommended by the Sub-committee of JCM III. The second part for extending to other employees is kept pending. Though the Board had agreed for granting of incentive to Examiners, OFB finance did not agree. It was demanded to refer to M of D for their approval. The same was agreed by OFB.

Ordnance Factories are not filling the 5% of vacancies in a Recruitment year. It has been informed to OFB that many factories are not filling the compassionate appointments for the last few years. The same was agreed and OFB vide their letter No.039/(6) Comp.Appt/Per/Policy Dt 29.11.2017 issued instructions to Sr.GMs/GMs directing to make all out efforts to fill up pending Compassionate appointment vacancies at the earliest.

Thousands of employees appointed in various factories through Direct Recruitment away from their hometown. They are making claims and approaching different levels politically and Trade Union/Federations. Very few are getting through but large numbers of employees are denied.

Sub: Fixation of pay under CCS (RP) rules 2016: clarification regarding.

Please refer the proviso contained in Rule 5 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 vide which a Government servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in the existing pay structure subject to other provisions of this rule.

2) In this context, the matter regarding fixation of pay under 7th CPC in respect of those employees promoted between 1st day of January, 2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 that is 25th July, 2016 and opted to switch over in revised pay structure from the date of next increment after availing the benefit of promotion in pre revised pay structure has been examined by Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure. It has since been clarified by the Ministry of Finance Deptt of Expenditure (E.III-A Branch) that the option to switch over to the revised pay structure either on 01.01.2016 or from a later date than 01.01.2016 i.e., on the date of promotion or the date of next increment, is applicable under.-Rule-5 – in case of post held on 01.01.2016. In other words, if the date of next increment on 01.07.2016 for a post held on 01.01.2016 falls after the date of promotion, then the date of next increment for the post held on 01.01.2016 has no relevance for option, as this post is no longer held on the date of next increment. In view of the above, option cannot be exercised from 01.07.2016 to switch over to the revised pay structure in such cases consequent upon the implementation of 7th CPC. Copies of letters issued by the office of CGDA, UIan Batar Road, Plam, Delhi Cantt.-110010 including the one referred to supra are enclosed for ready reference.

It is, therefore, requested that pay fixation cases in terms of 7th CPC may be regulated-accordingly.

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!

Sub: Brief on the discussion with the CRB on date

I met the CRB in the forenoon on date and had discussion on the following issues:-

1. Benchmarking for financial upgradation under MACPS consequent upon implementation of VII CPC – I explained the CRB that, prior to implementation of VII CPC recommendations, benchmarking for financial upgradation under MACPS, and that for regular promotion had been similar. With the implementation of higher benchmarking for financial upgradation under MACPS, there is serious resentment among the Railwaymen as majority of them is deprived of this legitimate benefit. The CRB assured to look into the matter on priority.

2. Appointment on Compassionate Ground of the wards/widows of the Railwaymen either died in harness or medically incapacitated – With the direct recruitment qualification for open market recruitment in erstwhile GP Rs.1800 having been upgraded to High School + ITI or Course Completed Act Apprenticeship, appointment on Compassionate Ground to those wards of the Railwaymen who are not in possession of this qualification is being denied. I had, therefore, raised this issue and the CRB has assured us that this issue shall also be dealt with on priority and the provision as existed earlier, i.e. placing them in -1S pay scale would be considered.

On the issue of Compassionate Ground Appointment, in general, the CRB said that, it would continue on Indian Railways on 1:1 basis.

3. Implementation of upgraded pay scales as recommended by the VII CPC to certain categories of Railwaymen – I had also discussed this issue with the CRB, explaining that the VII CPC has recommended upgraded pay scales to certain categories of Railwaymen, viz. SSO(A/Cs)/Sr. Travelling Inspector(A/Cs)/ Sr. Inspector(Stores A/Cs), Chemical & Metallurgical Asstt., Chemical & Metallurgical Supdt., Asstt. Chemist & Metallurgist, but the same are yet to be implemented, and the Ministry of Railways have unnecessarily referred the issue to the DoP&T, which is quite unfair and urged upon the CRB to implement the same without further delay. He also assured a positive action in the matter.

4. Absorption of Course Completed Act Apprentices in the Railways – AIRF has raised this issue many times, wherein we have requested that, the Apprentices who have completed their course before making quota of 20% should be regularized without subjecting them to any RRCs examination as has been done earlier with paper screening. The CRB assured that he would definitely do the needful and would try that this skilled workforce should join the Indian Railways at an earliest.

5. Improvement in the condition of Railway Quarters and Colonies – Regarding complaints pertaining to maintenance of railway quarters and colonies, I suggested the CRB to think on the subject out of the box. He appreciated the sincere suggestion given by me that, old railway colonies should be demolished and replaced with multi-storey railway colonies, equipped with lift, CCTVs, boundary etc., so that, the employees and their families, living therein, should feel secure. I also mentioned that, till they get proper railway quarter maintenance, the staff should be paid “Maintenance Allowance” for petty repairs, whitewash and painting etc.

This is for information and wide publicity.

Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
