OBC creamy layer concept extended to PSUs, financial institutions

OBC creamy layer concept extended to PSUs, financial institutions

Cabinet approves equivalence of posts in Central Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), Banks, Insurance Institutions with Posts in Government so that the children of those serving in lower categories in PSUs and other institutions can get the benefit of OBC reservations 

The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval to the norms for establishing equivalence of posts in Government and posts in PSUs, PSBs etc. for claiming benefit of OBC reservations. This addresses an issue pending for nearly 24 years.  This will ensure that the children of those serving in lower categories in PSUs and other institutions can get the benefit of OBC reservations, on par with children of people serving in lower categories in Government. This will also prevent children of those in senior positions in such institutions, who, owing to absence of equivalence of posts, may have been treated as non Creamy Layer by virtue of wrong interpretation of income standards from cornering government posts reserved for OBCs and denying the genuine non creamy layer candidates a level playing field.

The Union Cabinet also approved the increase in the present income criterion of Rs. 6 lakh per annum for applying the Creamy Layer restriction throughout the country, for excluding Socially Advanced Persons/Sections (Creamy Layer) from the purview of reservation of Other Backward Classes (OBCs). The new income criterion will be Rs. 8 lakh per annum. The increase in the income limit to exclude the Creamy Layer is in keeping with the increase in the Consumer Price Index and will enable more persons to take advantage of reservation benefits extended to OBCs in government services and admission to central educational institutions.

These measures are a part of the Government's efforts to ensure greater social justice and inclusion for members of the Other Backward Classes. The Government has already introduced in Parliament, a bill to provide Constitutional status to the National Commission for Backward Classes. It has also decided to set up a Commission, under section 340 of the Constitution, to sub categorize the OBCs, so that the more backward among the OBC communities can also access the benefits of reservation for educational institutions and government jobs. All these decisions, taken together, are expected to ensure greater representation of OBCs in educational institutions and jobs, while also ensuring that the more under-privileged within the category are not denied their chance of social mobility.

Background:

In its judgment dated 16.11.1992 in WP(C) 930/1990 (IndraSawhney case) the Supreme Court had directed the Government to specify the basis, for exclusion of socially and economically advanced persons from Other Backward Classes by applying the relevant and requisite socio-economic criteria.

An Expert Committee was constituted in February 1993 which submitted its report on 10.03.1993 specifying the criteria for identification of socially advanced persons among OBCs i.e. the Creamy Layer. The report was accepted by the then Ministry of Welfare and forwarded to DoPT which issued an OM dated 08.09.1993 on exclusion from the Creamy Layer.

The OM of 08.09.1993 specifies six categories for identifying Creamy Layer (a) Constitutional/Statutory post (b) Group  ‘A’  and Group ‘B’ Officers of Central and State Governments, employees of PSUs and Statutory bodies, universities, (c) Colonel and above in armed forces and equivalent in paramilitary  forces (d) professionals like Doctors, Lawyers, Management Consultants, Engineers etc. (e) Property owners with agricultural holdings or vacant land and/or buildings  and (f) income/wealth tax asessee.

The OM further stipulates that the said parameters would apply mutatis mutandis to officers holding equivalent or comparable posts in PSUs, Banks, Insurance Organizations, Universities, etc. and Government was required to determine equivalence of positions in these organizations with those in Government.

Pending the equivalence to the established in these institutions Income criteria would apply for the officers in these Institutions.

However, this exercise of determining the equivalence of posts in Government and posts in PSUs, PSBs etc. had not been initiated. The determination of equivalence of posts has been thus pending for almost 24 years.

The matter of formulating equivalence has since been examined in detail. In PSUs, all Executive level posts i.e. Board level executives and managerial level posts would be treated as equivalent to group 'A' posts in Government and will be considered Creamy Layer. Junior Management Grade Scale–1 and above of  Public Sector Banks, Financial Institutions and Public Sector Insurance Corporations will be treated as equivalent to Group 'A' in the Government of India and considered as Creamy Layer. For Clerks and Peons in PSBs, FIs and PSICs, the Income Test as revised from time to time will be applicable. These are the broad guidelines and each individual Bank, PSU, Insurance Company would place the matter before their respective board to identify individual posts.

SUB: (i) Payment of arrears of pension in cases where valid nomination has not been made under the payment of arrears of pension (Nomination) Rules, 1983; 

(ii) Payment of arrears of family pension-regarding.

Sir,
Attention is invited to provisions for payment of Arrears of Pension under Regulation 90 of Pension Regulation Part-II (2008), which provide that after the death of the Armed Force Pensioner, all money payable to the pensioner on account of pension due to the estate of a deceased pensioner may be paid to the nominee of the deceased Armed Forces Pensioner. In the absence of any nomination made by the Armed Forces Pensioner, the arrears of his/her pension are paid as per the "Will" if such a "Will" has been made by the deceased Armed Force Pensioner. In case neither nomination nor 'Will" has been made by the deceased Armed Forces Pensioner, the arrears of his/her pension are paid under the orders of the Pension Disbursing Authority to the heir without production of usual legal authority, if the gross amount of arrears of pension claim does not exceed Rs. 10,000=00, provided he is otherwise satisfied about the right of the claimant. If the gross amount of arrears of pension claim exceeds Rs. 10,000=00, the arrears of his/her  pension are paid under the orders of Principal Controller of Defence Accounts  (Pension) on execution of an Indemnity Bond in Form IAFA-642 duly stamped  for the gross amount due for payment with such sureties as may be deemed  necessary and accepted on behalf of the “President by an officer duly  authorized under Article 299(i) of the Constitution. In case of any doubt,  payment is made only to the person producing the legal authority.

2. Considering difficulties in obtaining the legal heir-ship-certificate it has been decided that in the absence of nominee or any "Will" of the deceased pensioner, the arrear of pension will be paid as under.-

(i) Under the orders of the Pension Disbursing Authority to the heir without production of legal authority, if the gross amount of arrears of pension claim  does not exceed Rs. 25,000/-, provided he is otherwise satisfied about the  right of the claimant.

(ii) If the gross amount of arrears of pension claims exceeds Rs 25,000/- but does not exceed Rs  2,50,000/-, under the orders of Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension) on execution of an Indemnity Bond in Form IAFA-642 duly stamped for the gross amount due for payment with such sureties as may be deemed necessary and accepted on behalf of the President by an officer duly authorized under article 299(i) of the Constitution. 

(iii) In case of any doubt and also in cases where the amount of arrear exceeds Rs 2,50,000/-, payment shall be made only to the person producing the legal authority.

3. Normally there should be two sureties both of known financial ability. However, in case the amount of claim is less than Rs 75,000/- the authority accepting the Indemnity Bond for and on behalf of President of India should decide on the merits of each case whether to accept only one surety instead of two. The obligor as well as the sureties executing the Indemnity Bond should have attained majority so that the bond has legal effect or force. The Bond is required to be accepted on behalf of the President by an Officer duly authorized under Article 299(i) of Constitution. 

4. This Ministry letter No. 1(16)/2009-D(Pen/Policy) dated 15.03.2010 stipulates that in the event of death of a family pensioner, the right to receive any arrears of family pension would automatically pass on to the eligible member of the family next in line. The requirement of succession certificate for payment of any arrears occurs only where there is no member in family who is eligible to receive family pension after the death of the family pensioner. Therefore, it has been decided that the provision of this letter will also apply to the payment of arrears of family pension where no member of family is eligible to receive family pension. 

5. These orders will not be applicable In the cases where valid nomination exist under GOI, MOD letter No.4(2)84/868/B/D(Pens/Services) dated 09.05.1984. 

6. This issue with the concurrence of Ministry of Defence (Finance/Pension) vide their ID No. 10(04)/2017/Fin/Pen dated 03 August 2017

No.RSCWS/HO/7thCPC/2017-16

Dear Sir,

Subject: Appeal for restoration of Option 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners – For Parity of Pension between Pre & Post-2016 Central Government Pensioners 
Reference: i) DOP&PW OM No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12th May, 2017 & 6th July, 2017 ii) Para 10.1.67 of 7th CPC Report for grant of Parity of Pension of Pre & Post Seventh CPC Pensioners 

1.We draw your kind attention to the sad plight of large majority of Central Government Pensioners – especially the Pre-2006 Pensioners and more so the Pre-1996 Pensioners, who will suffer a major financial loss in fixation of their Revised Pension on account of an unjust decision on implementation of 7th CPC Report vide DOP&PW OM dated 12-5-2017 cited above. 

2.The Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC) in Para 10.1.67 & 10.1.68 of its Report had for the first time conceded the long pending demand of the Central Government Pensioners for Parity of Pension between the Pre and Post CPC Pensioners and had recommended the following pension formulation for civil employees including CAPF personnel who had retired before 01.01.2016: 

i) All the Civilian personnel including CAPF who retired prior to 01.01.2016 (expected date of implementation of the Seventh CPC recommendations) shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by this Commission, on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the matrix. This amount shall be raised, to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree, by adding the number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension. 

ii) The second calculation to be carried out is as follows. The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations, shall be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension. 

iii) Pensioners be given option of choosing whichever formulation is beneficial to them. 

3.Option 1, cited above, was very much feasible to implement as recommended by 7th CPC for revision of Pension of old Pension since according to the survey conducted by the DOP&PW, it was accepted that the Service Records of over 80% of old Pensioners were available, while those of the others could be re-built as per procedure prescribed in the Rules and as was done after 5th & 6th CPC and as per orders of the Courts in numerous cases. 

4.Regrettably, the Committee formed by the Government, to consider the feasibility of implementation of Option 1 recommended by the Seventh CPC, while finding it non-feasible, did not care for the interest of the more than 80% of the Pensioners merely to save the Administration from the botheration of Re-building the Service Records of the rest less than 20% Pensioners. This was a great injustice since the 80% of the Pensioners who’s Records are available, shall suffer a loss of Pension just because of missing records of the rest 20%. 

5.Instead, the Government accepted the following formula vide OM Dated 12-5-2017, as recommended by the Committee on Feasibility of Option 1:

“the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed. 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016 as per the first Permutation.” 

6) The above said formula will very seriously and adversely affect the Revised pension of a large majority of the Pre-2016 Pensioners on account of following reasons: 

a) “Parity of Pension” between Pre and Post-2016 Pensioners – recommended by the Seventh CPC – would be denied to the Pre-2016 Pensioners. 

b) In the process of notional pay fixation in successive Pay Commissions, there is a lot of dilution particularly for pensioners who retired in 4th CPC period resulting in big financial loss. 

c) Irrespective of the date of retirement, Option 1 would have given the same pension to pre-2016 pensioners depending upon the number of increments earned in the last Level. By denying option 1 there will be sub-groups even within the homogenous group of pre-2016 pensioners. 

d) None of the above losses would occur to the Pre-2016 Pensioners if the Option 1 recommended by the 7th CPC is implemented and if the new formula is allowed as a 3rd Option in addition to Option 1 & 2 Recommended by the 7th CPC in the interest of natural justice to all Pre-2016 Pensioners. 

2. It is, therefore, requested that the Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners be fixed at the highest of the 3 Options – including first two Options as recommended by 7th CPC and 3rd Option as accepted by the Government and Notified vide DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017. 

Hoping for a favourable consideration & thanking you in anticipation. With kind regards, 

Yours faithfully,
