Sub: Air Travel entitlements for journeys on tour or training; revision of instructions reg.

In partial modification of Board’s letters of even number dated 24.08.2017 & 25.09.2017 on the subject, it has been decided by Board to revise the Air Travel entitlements of railway officers for journeys on tour or training in the following manner:

A. Journeys by Air within the Country

2. Further, in partial modification of Board’s letter of even number dated 25.09.2017, it has also been decided by Board that grant of Air Travel permission to officers on Indian Railways, either one way or two way, may be approved personally by GMs of Railways with the prior personal concurrence of PFA.

3. As delegated vide para 22 of Board’s letter No. F(X)II-2015IPW17, dated 12.06.2017 of delegation of powers to GMs, these powers may be exercised personally by Chief Administrative Officer with the prior personal concurrence of PFA In case of COFMOW, New Delhi, DCWIPatiala and MTPI Chennai. ‘

4. The competent authority while approving Air Travel would apply his mind and consider whether the available train connectivity and time taken justifies the same. For example; while Delhi-Bangalore-Delhi may qualify for Air Travel, Delhi-Mumbai-Delhi can easily be covered by train comfortably. General Manager while using his discretion to permit one way or two way Air Travel may consider both the need of the journey and the urgency that necessitates Air Travel.

5. It may be ensured that permission for Air Travel is given judiciously and restricted only to absolutely essential official requirement that is recorded, subject to availability of budgetary provisions.

6. This has the approval of Board (FC & CRB).

7. These orders will take effect from the date of issue of this letter.

8. Please acknowledge receipt.

No.AT/II/2458-XXIII

Dated : 01 Mar,2018

To
The PCA (Fys)
Kolkata

Subject: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP/MACP Scheme and Non Functional Grade to Pharmacists.

Reference: Your office letter No Pay/Tech-I/o1 (6th CPC) Pharmacist dated 12-01-2017, 20-02-2017 and 14-09-2017.

The issue of grant of ACP/MACP to Pharmacists referred to HQrs Office vide your office letter dated 12-01-2017 has been examined in consultation with other PCsDA/CsDA. As regard to the first point of doubt referred by your office, it is viewed that grant of NFU (in the grade pay of Rs 4200/-) to the pharmacists who have already been granted GP of Rs 4200/- by virtue of ACP or otherwise as on 01-01-2006 does not appear to be in tune with or supported by the orders regulating the grant of NFU.

2. Further, regarding second doubt raised by your office it is stated that the clarification given at SI No 2 of DOPT OM No 35034/1/97-Estt (D) (Vol-IV) dated 10-02-2000 clearly stipulates that in cases where pay scale given as selection grade/in-situ promotion is not a part of hierarchy, the pay scale granted by virtue of selection grade/in-situ promotion may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP. In view of the provisions ibid it is viewed that the pay scale/grade pay of Rs 4200/- granted by virtue of NFU in the cases of pharmacists which is not a part of hierarchy may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP.

This has the approval of Addl CGDA (PP&W).

Central Government employees losing interest in Dearness Allowance?

It is becoming very obvious these days that the Central Government employees and pensioners are fast losing interest in Dearness Allowance.

Dearness Allowance is given to the Central Government employees once every six months, in order to help them maintain their lifestyle against the rising prices. Fluctuations in the prices of 392 essential items are recorded regularly at 78 various locations and their data is tabulated once every month to calculate the All India Consumer Price Index Number(AICPIN), which is then released by the Centre. Dearness Allowance is thus calculated.

For ten years now, we have been calculating the Dearness Allowance in advance and releasing the numbers. This is why we are able to sense an acute loss of interest among the Central Government employees in recent times to know their next and expected Dearness Allowance.

Dearness Allowance is calculated with the employee’s basic salary. For example, a 7 percent Dearness Allowance for an employee who draws a basic salary of Rs.18000 per month, will translate into Rs. 1260.

All the Central Government employees, defence personnel and pensioners are now being paid as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, from January 2016 onwards. The Seventh Pay Commission had recommended that no changes shall be made in the Dearness Allowance calculations and the method adopted by the Sixth Pay Commission continues to be followed. The centre too had accepted the recommendations.

Under the Sixth Pay Commission method, the Dearness Allowance had increased by 125 percent in the past ten years, from January 2006 to December 2015. It is worth mentioning that at least thrice, a Dearness Allowance of 10 percent was paid to the employees. The table below shows the Dearness Allowance that was paid once every six months.

Month/Year Dearness Allowance
January 2016 0
July 2016 2%
January 2017 4%
July 2017 5%
January 2018 7%
July 2018 ?

The loss of interest among the employees probably has something to do with the fact that the increase in Dearness Allowance has only been marginal ever since the Seventh Pay Commission was implemented.

There was no Dearness Allowance for the first six months, January to June 2016. Dearness Allowance of only 2 percent was given for July to December 2016. It looked as if something was wrong with the calculations, right from the start, but the employees thought that things will improve with time. The Dearness Allowance for January to June 2017 was a mere one percent, which came as a rude shock to all. And then, Jul to Dec 2017 is 5% and Jan to Jun 2018 is being fixed as 7% as per the calculations.

The centre claimed that it was because they have the prices under control.

So, what is the Dearness Allowance for the second term of 2018, July to December 2018, likely to be?
This time too, it is not expected to exceed 3 percent.

We expect the Dearness Allowance to be 9% or 10% with effect from July 2018.
