Subject: Implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission — fixation of pay and payment of arrears – instructions – regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to the Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure’s Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25.07.2016, bringing out the decisions of the Government on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission as well as the consequent promulgation of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, notified vide G.S.R No. 721(E) dated 25th July, 2016 regarding fixation of pay in the revised pay structure effective from 01.01.2016 and to say the provisions governing such fixation of pay have been clearly enunciated in the said Rules.

2. Accordingly, in pursuance of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016, appropriate necessary action to fix the pay of the employees covered thereunder in the revised pay structure needs to be carried out forthwith in accordance with the provisions contained therein. In order to facilitate a smooth and systematic fixation of pay, a proforma for the purpose (Statement of Fixation of Pay) is enclosed at Annexure. The statement of fixation of pay in revised pay structure as per CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 be prepared in triplicate and one copy thereof be placed in the Service Book of the employee concerned and another copy made available to the concerned accounting authorities [Chief Controller of Accounts/Controller of Accounts/Accounts Officer] for post-check.

3. The revised pay structure effective from 01.01.2016 includes the Dearness Allowance of 125% sanctioned from 01.01.2016 in the pre-revised pay structure. Thus, Dearness Allowance in the revised pay structure shall be zero from 01.01.2016. The rate and the date of effect of the first installment of Dearness Allowance in the revised pay structure shall be as per the orders to be issued in this behalf in future.

4. The decision on the revised rates and the date of effect of all Allowances (other than Dearness Allowance), based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission shall be notified subsequently and separately. Until then, all such Allowances shall continue to be reckoned and paid at the existing rates under the terms and conditions prevailing in the pre-revised pay structure as if the existing pay structure has not been revised under the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 issued on 25.07.2016

5. The contributions under the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) shall continue to be applicable under the existing rates until further orders.

6. The existing system on interest free advances for medical treatment, Travelling Allowance for family of deceased, Travelling Allowance on tour or transfer and Leave Travel Concession shall continue as hitherto.

7. The arrears as accruing on account of revised pay consequent upon fixation of pay under CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 with effect from 01.01.2016 shall be paid in cash in one installment along with the payment of salary for the month of August, 2016, after making necessary adjustment on account of GPF and NPS, as applicable, in view of the revised pay. DDOs/PAOs shall ensure that action is taken simultaneously in regard to Government’s contribution towards enhanced subscription.

8. With a view to expediting the authorization and disbursement of arrears, it has been decided that the arrear claims may be paid without pre-check of the fixation of pay in the revised scales of pay. However, the facilities to disburse arrears without pre-check of fixation of pay will not be available in respect of those Government servants who have relinquished service on account of dismissal, resignation, discharge, retirement etc. after the date of implementation of the Pay Commission’s recommendations but before the preparation and drawl of the arrears claims, as well as in respect of those employees who had expired prior to exercising their option for the drawal of pay in the revised scales.

9. The requirement of pre-check of pay fixation having been dispensed with, it is not unlikely that the arrears due in some cases may be computed incorrectly leading to overpayments that might have to be recovered subsequently. Therefore, the Drawing & Disbursing Officers should make it clear to the employees under their administrative control, while disbursing the arrears; that the payments are being made subject to adjustment from amounts that may be due to them subsequently should any discrepancies be noticed later. For this purpose, an undertaking as prescribed as per a “Form of Option” under Rule 6(2) of the
CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 shall be obtained in writing from every employee at the time of exercising option under Rule 6(1) thereof.

10. In authorizing the arrears, Income Tax as due may also be deducted and credited to Government in accordance with the instructions on the subject.

11. On receipt of the necessary options, action for drawal and disbursement of arrears should be completed immediately.

CGEGIS was Modified by 7th CPC to give High Risk Cover, but Govt ignored

CGEGIS was Modified by 7th CPC to give High Risk Cover, but Govt ignored

The Best Recommendation for CGEGIS is ignored by all

Apart from Pay Matrix there is one more thing we need to appreciate 7th Pay Commission for its recommendations. The recommendations on living benefits are only debated much in discussions. But the 7th CPC has put human face and showed its magnanimity while recommending CGEGIS for Central Government Employees with high risk cover.

Spending 1500 Rupees every month for overcoming the uncertainty in life to save the family is not at all a matter of concern for Group C Government servants. Because the family of a Group C Employee gets 15 Lakh Rupees at the unfortunate loss of its breadwinners life.

But the central government simply ignored this recommendation and no federations hasn’t say anything about that. It shows its lack of clear vision in every aspects of life beyond service conditions.

7th CPC Recommended the following Risk Cover with Premium Return Benefits on Retirement.cgegisIn case of Group C Employee’s death, the family will be Paid Rs.15 Lakhs
If It happens to Group B Employee, the family will get Rs.25 lakhs
For Group A it will be Rs.50Lakh

At present a family of Group C employee cannot get Rs.1500000 from Terminal benefits in case of an employee’s death. There are lot of families are suffering without sufficient income as the Pension benefits are not at par with Money required to live a decent life. After 2004, All the Central Government Servants are covered under NPS. As of now no one knows how much the family will get in case of death of a Government Servant covered under NPS.

The Federation must keep in mind all aspects mentioned above and should insists the Government to accept the recommendations of 7th CPC on CGEGIS.

House Rent Allowance not issued from the date of effect of Pay Commission

House Rent Allowance not issued from the date of effect of Pay Commission

The date of effect of allowances

Comrades,
The Central Government employees are always be cheated in respect of date of implementation of allowances especially on HRA , from past twenty years it is observed that these allowances are issued from a later date in 5th CPC case it was issued after 20 months , in case of 6th CPC it was issued after 32 months , in 7th CPC we hoped it will be issued in 7 months , but it was not the case , now it is likely to be issued only after 11 months . There by causing financial loss to the employees, the cost of living index is going up every month, but the allowances especially the HRA is not issued from the date of effect of the pay commission.

The following are the facts :
The Fifth Central Pay Commission was set up by the Government of India by Resolution No. 5(12)/E. III/93 dated 9th April, 1994. The Commission submitted on the 30th January, 1997. The revised allowances, other than dearness allowance, was effective from 1st day of August, 1997 instead of 1st January 1996.

The Government constituted the Sixth Central Pay Commission vide Resolution No. 5/2/2006-E.III(A) dated October 5, 2006. and Gazette Notification for implementation of 6th CPC was issued on 29th August 2008, all allowances were issued effective from 1st August 2008 instead of 1st January 2006.

In a resolution dated 28th February, 2014, Government of India has appointed the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The Gazette Notification for implementation of 7th CPC was issued on 25th July 2016 (without allowances) , all allowances are likely to be issued from 1st December 2016 instead of instead of 1st January 2016 after a committee headed by the Finance Secretary gives its report .

The present HRA and other allowances as per 6th CPC is totally insufficient, the cost of housing has gone up drastically and cost of living has gone up hence urgent need to revise the HRA and other allowances , we hope the Government to review the allowances at the earliest, so that the Central Government employees will get the enhanced allowances especially HRA from 1st July 2016 as per earlier practices.

Comradely yours

The benefit of GPF and Old Pension Scheme is applicable to all those casual labourers who are covered under the Scheme of the 10th September, 1993 even if they have been regularized on or after 01/01/2004.

3. As the benefit of Old Pension Scheme and GPF is admissible only to those Casual workers who are covered under the Scheme of 1993, all Ministries/ Department may strictly ensure that it does not lead to demand by regularly recruited fresh employees appointed on or after 1.1.2004for similar benefit in place of NPS.
