Sub :- Fixation of pay under restructuring of cadre of Artisan staff in Def. Establishment in modification of recommendation of 6 CPC

While implementing the order of restructuring of Cadre of Artisan staff as issued vide MOD letter nos .l11(5)/2009-D(Civ-I) dated 14/06/2010 and 01/12/2010, various Br. Accounts Offices have referred several doubts on exercising option, for clarifications. The views of this office against the doubts raised by the Br.A.Os are given below for compliance :


 

Sl.No.

Doubt

This office Views

1.

A Semi Skilled IE (Grade Pay: Rs.1800/-) has got promotion to Skilled grade (Grade Pay:Rs.1900/-) after passing trade test and before pay fixation is made on the date of increment got another promotion to Highly Skilled-II grade (Grade Pay: Rs.2400/-) due to cadre restructuring during February to June in calendar year. Whether he may be allowed two promotional benefit @ 3% in each promotion and one annual increment @3% on July of that year based on the option exercised by him? 

Example: A Semi-Skilled IE got promotion 25th February, 2006. He has got another promotion to HS-II grade on 26 February, 2006 due to cadre restructuring. How his pay will be fixed?

In the light of C&AG decision No.4 below FR22 on regulation of pay in cases of two promotions in quick succession, pay fixation on 2nd promotion from Skilled to HS-II grade cannot be done unless his pay is fixed in the skilled grade. Hence, his pay is to be fixed in the post of skilled grade on the date of 1st promotion first and then he may be allowed 2nd promotion to the HS-II grade straight way by granting 3% increment on Band Pay and Grade Pay, so fixed after 1st promotion. The next date of increment cannot be made available on 1st July of that year due to non-completion of 6 months service in the 2nd promoted post in terms of Rule 10 of CDS(RP) Rules, 2008. 

In such cases his pay will be fixed to the Skilled grade on 25/02/2006 straightway, then his pay will be fixed on 26/02/2006 to the HS-II grade by granting 3% increment on the pay (Band Pay - Grade Pay) of the Skilled grade and placed in the grade pay of Rs. 2400/-. The next date of increment cannot be made available on 01/07/2006 due to non-completion of 6 months service in the promoted post and his date of next increment would be on 01/07/2007.

2.

An IE has got one promotion and one non-functional upgradation under ACP Scheme during February to June in a calendar year. His pay has been fixed on the date of first promotion as per 6th CPC promotional norms. Further, he has been allowed for exercising option for fixation of pay on ACP upgradation from the date of increment on 1st July of that year. 

Whether he may be allowed one promotional benefit@ 3% and one annual increment @3% on 1st July in the particular year based on his option so exercised?

If he opts to fix his pay on the date of increment and got ACP benefit before final fixation of pay on the date of increment on account of his 1st promotion in that case his pay on ACP upgradation is to be fixed based on the pay admissible on that date without waiting for fixation on incremental date. It means that he is not entitled to re-fixation of pay for the 1st promotion from the date of next increment as per aforesaid C&AG order. 

On the other hand if his pay is fixed straightway on the date of 1st promotion in that case there would be no increment in that year as on the date of increment i.e. 1st July he will not be completing 6 months service in the promotional post and hence the benefit of upgradation under ACP scheme is to be provided on the date of ACP upgradation straight way by granting 3% increment and grade pay of promotional post. The next date of increment cannot be made available on 1st July of that year due to non-completion of 6 months service in the promoted post in terms of Rule 10 of CDS(RP) Rules, 2008.

3.

Whether a newly appointed IE to a post on or after 01/01/2006, may be allowed to exercise option to continue his 5th CPC pay scale upto date of promotion in terms of Rule 5 of CDS (RP) Rules, 2008, consequence on his promotion?

In this connection it is stated that the option in terms of 2nd Proviso of Rule 5 of CDS (RP) Rules, 2008 is not admissible to any person who have been appointed to a post on or after 01/01/2006 as per explanation-2 below Rule 5 of CDS(RP)Rules 2008. He may only be allowed promotional benefit as per 6th CPC promotional norms.

It is, therefore, requested to take action to settle the disputed issues, if any, in accordance with the views above.

The revised form will have the following salient features:

•    The form will be called Transfer Claim Form instead of Form 13 for easy comprehension by the beneficiaries.

•    This form can be submitted online as well as in physical form. The facility of online submission of this form will be given shortly after process of collecting the digital signature of the employer is completed.

•    The facility to file physical form shall continue to cater to the needs of working class who do not have internet access.

•    Online submission of form will introduce paperless process for claim settlement.

•    Every beneficiary will be informed through SMS and e-mail about the stage of process of the claim to make the entire process transparent and accountable.

•    After introduction of online claim settlement, endeavour will be made to substantially reduce the assured time of settlement of transfer claim which presently is 30 days.

The plan visualizes development of system for Web based services to employers and employees for online submission of forms and settlement of claims.

In the financial year 2012-13, 107.62 lac number of claims were settled out of which 88% of claims were processed within 30 days which is the current time frame for settlement of claims.

Though the percentage of claim settled in time is high in absolute terms approximately 13 lac number of beneficiaries did not get their settlement of claims within the stipulated time.

    Sub: Empowered Committee to finalize a mechanism for a new formula for running allowance.

    Ref:     (i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/RSAC/Conf./IV dt. 8.4.2013.
        (ii) AIRF’s letter no. AIRF/Sub-Committee No. 143 (94) dt. 6.4.13

    The issues raised by the federations in the letters referred above, expressing concern on the formation of Empowered Committee on the captioned subject without consulting the staff side, have been considered by Board. At the outset Board would like to assure the Federations that the said committee has the clear mandate for holding detailed consultations with the federations and all the other stakeholders as well before firming up their recommendations. It would be pertinent to mention in this context, and the Federations would be well aware, that the scheme of Running Allowance for the running staff of Indian Railways since its inception has been deliberated upon by a number of committees in the past, and detailed and meaningful consultations with staff side have been the essential feature of the recommendations of these committees. The inherent purpose behind formation of this Committee is to devise a workable solution to long pending issues of the Running staff which would be both in the interest of the Running Staff as well the organization. Board would, thus, like to reiterate that the apprehensions expressed by the staff side are clearly misplaced.

2.    Prior to implementation of VIth CPC, Kilometreage Allowance was being paid to the Running Staff based on a formula devised by RAC 1980, which was arrived at after taking into account the views of all the stakeholders duly taking into account the then scales of pay and allowances of both running and non-running staff. VIth CPC brought in a radical change in the pay structure of government employees. In line with the general principle of de-layering adopted by the Commission, number of pay scales were amalgamated into fewer pay bands. The new pay structure rendered the 1980 formula unfeasible and thus arose a need for a new formula. As the Federations would be well aware, Board then constituted a Joint Committee for devising a new formula and determination of the quantum of pay element. Since the said Committee instead, merely doubled the running allowance, like other allowances, and subsequent developments of increasing the running allowance by 25%, number of issues were left unaddressed. For instance, in the absence of a formula-based running allowance, the demand for revision from the date of the pay commission could not be addressed. Taking all these factors into account including the pressing need for a dynamic formula, as was existing earlier with good results for all the stakeholders, Board decided to constitute this Committee.

3.    As regards the request to dissolve the Empowered Committee, it is stated that the Indian Railways has an evolved system of finding solutions to various contentious issues that it is faced with, in consultation with all the stakeholders. It would thus not be fair to stall such a system as demanded. The process of consultations with all the stakeholders, which could not happen earlier due to the elections for recognition of Federations in April, would soon commence, and the representatives of the staff side would be welcomed for offering their views, so that the organizational interests in general and those of the Running Staff in particular, are well served.

Progressing of pension to permanently disabled children/siblings and dependent parents

Progressing of pension to permanently disabled children/siblings and dependent parents


Problems are being faced by the affected people in receiving revised PPOs after the death of the pensioner/family pensioner. 

Approval should be obtained in advance for grant of pension for life to permanently disabled child/sibling based on the request from the Government servant. As per rule 54 CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972, grant of family pension to son or daughter would be allowed to only those not able to earn due to physical deformity or mental disability. For that sake, medical board should give certificate. As regards disabled siblings, he/she should have been wholly depended on the deceased Govt servant. In addition, the wife, children or parents of the Govt servant should not be alive. 

If the wife and child are not alive and the parents depended on the Govt servant prior to his death, his parents are eligible for family pension. This is admissible to mother. If not possible, then only to the father. 

On approval of the request, the family pension to the children/siblings/parents will be sanctioned. No further authorisation is required. By maintaining details, this will be progressed at a faster pace. They will receive family pension as below: 

The name of disabled child/children/siblings or dependent parents will be added in the PPO, if no other is eligible other than wife.

(i) To wife: After the death of pensioner and on production of death certificate, the family pension will be paid to his wife till her death or remarriage. If the widow is not having child, the family pension will continue after re-marriage. 

(ii) After the death/re-marriage of his wife and on production of death certificate/re-marriage intimation, the family pension will be paid to disabled children. 

(iii) If (i) and (ii) die or become ineligible, the family pension will be paid first to mother and then to father. 

(iv) If family pension to all the above are ceased, then the same will be paid to permanently disabled siblings.
The names of the disabled child/children/dependent parents/permanently disabled siblings will be added to PPO. The family pension will be payable to them after the death/ineligibility of the prior claimant. 

The Pension Disburisng Authority will start disbursing family pension to the disabled child/sibling or dependent parents after the death of the pensioner/spouse/other family pensioner on the basis of the PPO, approval of appointing authority, death certificate of the pensioner and other family pensioners besides self-certificate for income. 

The authorization will become invalid if a person is eligible for family pension ahead of disabled child/sibling/dependent parents. If the pensioner marries after the death of his first wife and adopt a child, such wife and child will be eligible for family pension after the death of the pensioner/ineligibility of the first wife. Child adopted by the spouse is not a family member. In this case, decision will be taken by the Head of Office. 

By opening bank account of such children/siblings/parents and informing the H.O., the bank authorities will sanction the family pension. 

For the pensioners of IAAD, this is issued after consultation with CAG of India.

Dear Sir,

Payment of pension to the Central Government pensioners- Continuation of either or survivor pension account after death of a pensioner
We have been receiving complaints from the pensioners that on death of a pensioner, banks are insisting on opening of a fresh account by the widow/widower of.the pensioner for the purpose of family pension.

2.    In this connection, we advise that in case the spouse (Family pensioner) opts for existing joint account for credit of family pension, banks should not insist on opening of a new account when the spouse is the survivor and having a joint account with the pensioner and in whose favour an authorization for payment of family pension exists in the Pension Payment Order (PPO).

3.    We advise you to issue suitable instructions to your Regional Offices/branches authorised to disburse pension to the Central Government pensioners

Yours faithfully,

Subject:- Filling up the posts of posts in Higher Selection Grade-I (HSG) in Savings Bank Control Organisation (SBCO) and Circle Office and Regional Offices (CO/R0) in Postal Circles-Reg.



Sir/Madam,
I am directed to refer to Directorate's letter No. 4-44/2012-SPB-II dated 18.04.2013 requesting the Circles to fill up the posts in HSG-1 in Post Offices and RMS Offices by convening Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) Meeting for promoting HSG-Il officials in PO & RMS Offices as per the provisions of existing Recruitment Rules.


2. References have been received from some Circles seeking clarifications as to whether DPC meeting can be convened for HSG.I posts in SBCO and CO/ RO cadre.


3. Earlier, Directorate had never issued any instructions to the Circles that DPC meeting should not be held for filling up HSG.I posts in SBCO and CO as per the provisions of existing Recruitment Rules of these cadres. The onus, therefore, lies on the Circles to hold DPC meetings regularly to fill up the posts in SBCO and CO as per the provisions contained in the existing Recruitment Rules.
