Dear Sir,

Sub: Meeting with the Staff Side(JCM) on the recommendations of the 7th CPC and their implementation.

We had our last meeting on 24th October, 2016, wherein, while concluding, it was assured that, you would consult the Secretary(Expenditure) and would hold next meeting shortly. It is quite unfortunate that, so far much time have passed and nothing has been heard from your end.

Inordinate delay in Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula is creating lots of problems, and the Central Government Employees are agitated because this issue had been agitating their minds since implementation of 7th CPC Report

You are, therefore, requested to call a meeting with the Staff Side(JCM) to discuss and resolve these issues at the earliest.

With Kind Regards!
Sincerely yours,

Dear Sir,
Sub: Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300-reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 24/26-08-2016 addressed to Railway Board.

Federation vide its letter of even number dated 24/26-08-2016 brought to the notice of Railway Board a case non-fixation of pay of staff working in Pay Band-1S/Rs. 4440-7440 in whose favour no orders have been passed for fixation of these staff pursuant to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC. For the purpose the Federation cited Railway Board’s notification issued under RBE No. 90/2016 where there are no instructions for these staff.

In addition to above, Federation proposed to the Board to consider the skills and service experience gained by the staff, presently in- 1S, for considering placement in Level-I (Rs. 18000/-) of the

7th CPC Pay Matrix. Federation feels sad to point out that thereafter a period of over three months has passed there is no feed back with the result the employees have been made to suffer unnecessarily. A copy of Federation’s letter dated 24/26-08-2016 is enclosed for reference.

NFIR, thereofore, requests the Railway Board once again to take further necessary action and advise to the Federation only.

Yours faithfully,

Rs.20,000/- as Salary Advance in cash to all the employees - AIRF

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Payment of salary advance in cash – Reg.

As you are aware, due to demonetization by the Government of India, lots of problems are being faced by the Railwaymen in getting their salaries through the Banks and ATMs and the Railwaymen and their families are finding it very difficult to meet their daily needs.

With your kind initiative, last month an amount of Rs.10,000/- was arranged as Advance Payment for the employees, due to which employees have managed to tide over the situation to some extent.

Even today most of the banks are not able to disburse Rs.24,000/- per week as stipulated by the Government of India and the ATMs are also non-functional, therefore, employees are not able to adjust their duties and stand in lengthy queues in front of the Banks/ATMs to withdraw their salaries.

To save the employees from serious financial crisis, your goodself are requested to sanction at least Rs.20,000/- as Salary Advance in cash to all the employees, especially for Running Staff, Trackmen, C&W Staff and Open line staff and to adjust the same in the salary bill of December 2016 to enable the employees to perform their duties as also to take care of their families peacefully.

Yours faithfully,

ALLOWANCES COMMITTEE’S TIME LIMIT EXTENDED UPTO 22.02.2017

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG

REVISED ALLOWANCES WILL NOT BE PAID IN THIS FINANCIAL YEAR.

ALLOWANCES COMMITTEE’S TIME LIMIT EXTENDED UPTO 22.02.2017

CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AGAIN CHEATED BY NDA GOVERNMENT

STRIKE IS INEVITABLE

MAKE 15th DECEMBER PARLIAMENT MARCH
A THUNDERING SUCCESS!

Dr. Urjit R. Patel, Governor, Reserve Bank of India has made the following observations in a media conversation which is published in RBI website.

(1) The disbursement of salaries and arrears under 7th Pay Commission award has not been disruptive to inflation outcomes.

(2) The extension of two months given to the Ministry of Finance to receive the notification on higher allowances under the Pay Commission’s award, COULD PUSH IT’S FULLER EFFECT INTO THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR rather than this financial year.

The above statement by the Governor, RBI clearly indicates that THE ALLOWANCES WILL BE REVISED ONLY AFTER FEBRUARY 2017 AND WILL COME INTO EFFECT IN THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR ONLY.

Earlier to a question regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula Minister of State for Finance Shri Arun Ram Meghwal gave the following reply in the Raja Sabha on 23.11.2016.

“The anomalies arising out of implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission will be examined by the Anomaly Committee which has already been constituted. Based on the report of the Committee, the matter will be considered by the Government and appropriate decision will be taken.

From the reply it is clear that the question of increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment factor is to be decided by the Anomaly Committee. That is why the Government has not formally constituted THE HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE as assured by the Group of Ministers to the JCM Staff side leaders in the 30th June night discussion. And this is the reason for Group of Senior Officers behaving as if they .don’t know what the task is assigned to them. Now by 30th December SIX months will be over after the 30th June assurance given by Group of Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singh , Hon’ble Home Minister , Shri Arun Jaitley , Hon’ble Finance Minister and Shri Suresh Prabhu , Hon’ble Railway Minister . Employees and Leaders have never expected such blatant breach of assurance given by Senior Cabinet Ministers of NDA Government.

The revision of pay and pension of thousands of Autonomous body employees and Pensioners is also pending for the last six months. On 17.11.2016 Finance Ministry has given instructions to all Autonomous bodies NOT TO EXTEND the benefits of 7th CPC to employees and Pensioners of Autonomous bodies UNTIL FURTHER ORDERS.

The One man Committee constitute by Government for revision of wages and service conditions of three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of Postal Department had submitted it’s report to Government on 24th November 2016. Even after 20 days, the Government is not ready to publish the report or give copy to the recognised Federations.

The revision of wages of Casual, Part-time Contingent and Contract workers, consequent on implementation of 7th CPC wage revision is also pending.

The one and the only favourable recommendation of 7th CPC ie; Parity between past and present pensioners (Option – 1) stands referred to a Committee which has taken a stand that Option – 1 is not feasible.

None of the demands raised by Confederation in its 20 point charter of demands is settled.

THERE IS NO SHORT-CUT OTHER THAN STRUGGLE.

AWAKE! ARISE!! UNITE COMRADES!!!

RALLY ROUND CONFEDERATION.

Federation is in receipt of reply dated 30th November, 2016 from the Railway Board. In this connection, the hardships being faced by the Railway employees are reiterated once again as below. The Railway employees are facing lot of hardships due to restrictions on drawal of their legitimate wages from their Bank Account. For November 2016 salary, only Rs. 10,000/- cash were paid to each Railway staff. However, due to continued restrictions, the Railway employees are not able to draw their wages adequately from the Banks for meeting their requirements.

It is therefore requested that Cash Payment of Rupees not less than 25,000 may be ensured to each Railway employee from out of December, 20l6 salary.

Incentivizing Digital Payments - Weekly, Quarterly lucky draw for grand prizes

Incentivizing Digital Payments - Weekly, Quarterly lucky draw for grand prizes

Incentivizing Digital Payments 

Press Information Bureau 
Government of India
NITI Aayog

10-December-2016 18:18 IST

Incentivizing Digital Payments 

Government of India has initiated numerous steps to combat the scourge of Corruption and Black Money in the last two and a half years. Demonetization of 500 and 1000 Rs. notes is an important milestone in this endeavour. These large denomination currencies have resulted in a number of ill effects upon the economy. To increase overall transparency in the economy, it is important that we set into motion long term schemes to encourage digital payments so that tax evasion can be minimized.

It is possible to leverage technology to carry out business transactions digitally through online payments, mobile banking, e-wallets, debit cards etc. There are a large number of instruments to move from digital to digi-dhan. In Africa a developing country like Kenya has made this possible. In a country like India where 65% of the population is below 35 years of age, whose IT prowess is well recognized and where even poor and illiterate people exercise their franchise through EVMs, this transformation toward digital economy is definitely possible provided the citizens resolve to do so. This would enable the economy to grow at a faster pace.

In order to realize this vision, we need to encourage electronic payments and nudge the society to move from digital to digi-dhan. There has been a remarkable increase in both volume and amount of digital payment transactions since November 8th. However, it is necessary to ensure that electronic payments are adopted by all sections of the society. In view of the above, NITI Aayog has requested National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) to conceptualize and  launch a new scheme to incentivize digital payments. It would be useful to reiterate that NPCI is a not for profit company which is charged with a responsibility of guiding India towards being a cashless society.

The highlights of the proposed incentives scheme are as follows-

All consumers and merchants using digital payments shall be eligible

There are two levels of incentive amounts available under the scheme:

Weekly lucky draw of the transaction IDs generated in that week, the contours of which are being finalized.

Quarterly draw for grand prizes.

While designing the scheme the focus will be on poor, lower middle class and small businesses.

All modes of digital payments- viz. USSD, AEPS, UPI and RuPay Cards- will be eligible.

For merchants, transactions made on the POS machines installed at their locations would be considered.

The detailed guideline of the scheme shall be unveiled soon. However, it would be ensured that all those who have used digital payment systems after November 8th shall be eligible to participate in the scheme.

The scheme would also provide for recognition of State Governments, their Undertakings, Districts and Urban & Rural Local Bodies who innovate for promoting electronic payment in their respective jurisdictions.

Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen - NFIR

Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer rank in Defence Foces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

No.E(G)2013/EM 1-5
New Delhi, dated 7/12/2016

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer rank in Defence Foces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts – Regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to a demand by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a recognised Federation of Railwaymen, who have requested that the initial pay of non-commissioned ex-servicemen (PBOR) who are re-employed on the Railways should be fixed by taking into account the service endered by them in the Defence Forces. They are insisting that the fixation done in the minimum of the scale of the re-employed post should be according to the procedure laid down in para 4 (b) (ii) of DOP&T’s OM s dated 31/7/86 as amended vide OM dated 11th November 2008, 5th April 2010 & 8th November, 2010. The Federation states that the content of these OMs clearly states that the Pay of re-employed former Defence Forces Personnel should be fixed as per Rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008 i.e. at the same stage of their last basic pay drawn at the time of retirement i.e. allowing one increment (in the post held at the time of retirement) for each year of service the ex-servicemen has rendered at the time of retirement with the proviso that the pay thus fixed does not exceed:-

(a) The pay drawn prior to retirement for non-commissioned officer of all three forces like Army, Navy and Air Force (Sub para 2 (ix) of Para 3 & Para 4 (b) (ii) of OM dated 31st July 1986 are relevant).

(b) Para 5 of DOP&T’s OM No. 3/13/2008-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 11th November, 2008 stipulated enhancement of existing ceiling of Rs. 26000/- for drawal of pay plus gross pension on re-employment to Rs. 80,000/- p.m.

2. However, their attention was drawn to the provisions in DOP&T’s OM No. 3/1/85-Estt.(pay-II) dated 31st July 1986 and OM NO. 3/19/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 5th April 2010, governing initial pay fixation, inter alia, of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer rank in Defence Forces and retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in the Railways. As per these orders, the initial pay of such re-employed pensioners is to be fixed in terms of provisions of Central Civil Services (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 issued by Department of Personnel and Training vide OM No. 3/1/85-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 31/7/1986 as amended from time to time.

3. It is to be seen that revised provision contained in Para 2 of OM dated 5th April 2010 revising the contents of Para 4(d)(i) of CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 provides that in case of ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer rank in the Defence Forces and in the case of civilians who held posts below Group ‘A’ posts at the time of their retirement before 55 years of age, the entire pension and pension equivalent of retirement benefits shall be ignored, i.e. no duduction on this count is to be made from the initial pay fixed on re-employment. Also, in terms of the Para 4(a) and Para 4(b)(i) of CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, as amended vide DOP&T’s OM No. 3/19/2009-Estt.(Pay.II) dated 5/4/2010, the initial pay on re-employment of such pensioners shall be fixed as per the entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re-employed post applicable in the case of Direct Recruits appointed on or after 1/1/2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. As is explicit, these instructions do not provide for protection of last pay drawn before retirement, in such cases. Therefore, the fixation of pay of re-employed ex-servicemen is being done accordingly on the Railways.

4. However, the Federation does not agree with the above contention and desires that the pay of ex-Defence Forces personnel re-employed in Railways should be fixed in accordance with the clarification issued vide DoP&T’s OM dated 5th April, 2010 in Para 3 (iv) & (v) which contain clarifications duly stating that the pay of the ex-servicemen, re-employed in the Central Government Organizations will be fixed in accordance with the provision contained in DoP&T’s OM No. 3/13/2008-Estt.(pay-II) dated 11/11/2008 after exercising option in the manner laid down in Rule 6 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 and the fixation of pay is to be regulated in accordance with the provisions of Rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008.

The Federation has further pointed out that the initial pay of a re-employed military pensioner and a direct recruit cannot be the same in view of the fact that the pay of the re-employed Defence Forces Pensioner is to be done as per the provisions of Rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 applicable to direct recruits – the two entrants being independent and have no co-relation with each other.

5. After protracted correspondence and discussion of the issue between NFIR and the concerned officials of this Ministry, as NFIR are still not convinced with the official stand on this issue and insisting on implementation of Para 3 (iv) and (v) of DoP&T’s O.M. Dated 5/4/2010. Hence, it was decided to refer the matter to DOP&T for clarification.

6. In the light of the position as brought out above, DOP&T are requested to clarify specifically as to whether the contention of NFIR that the pay of non-commissioned ex-servicemen (PBOR) who retire from the Defence Forces before attaining the age of 55 years, and are subsequently re-employed on the Railways should be fixed by taking into account the service rendered by them and last pay drawn in the Defence Forces, is in order, or the procedure being followed on the Railways i.e. fixing the pay of such re-employed ex-servicemen as per the entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re-employed post applicable in the case of Direct Recruits appointed on or after 1/1/2006, without any pay protection is correct.

7. An early reply in the matter is solicited.
