Allowances Committee Report and Financial Expenditure

Comrades,
The Central Government Civilian Employees numbering around 36 lakhs employees and Defence forces numbering around 15 lakhs are waiting for a long period for the allowances committee to submit its report and almost 10 months have passed , the allowances committee has not submitted its report so far , the patience of the Central Government Employees is almost over , the main demand of the CG employees is house rent allowance , the expenditure towards the HRA is just at 4.15 % of the total expenditure , the breakup of pay and allowances is pay including DA constitute about 80% and all allowances together constitute around 20% of the total expenditure, even if the 7th CPC recommendations are accepted the HRA expenditure shall be at just 9% of the total expenditure, even if the staff side demands of the HRA is accepted the total expenditure shall not cross 10%, let us examine the following facts.

The total expenditure towards pay & allowances for 36 lakhs Central Government employees for the year 2015-16 is Rs 1,50,028.57 ( in crore) , Out of the total expenditure of 1,50,028.57 crore, the percentage expenditure on Pay, Dearness Allowance (DA), House Rent Allowance (HRA) and other allowances are Pay Rs 55,162.69 crores (36.77%) , DA Rs 64,304.33 crores (42.68%) , allowances constitute Rs 30561.55 crores of which HRA Rs 6,225.14 crores ( 4.15% ) and. Transport Allowance constitute Rs 6186.05 crores and other allowances 16.22% respectively.

Out of the total expenditure of Rs 6,225.14 crore on HRA in 2015-16, the HRA expenditure for X class cities is Rs 2287.80 crore which is around 36.75% of the total expenditure on HRA.

Number of Sanctioned Posts is 36,49,468 and Number in Position is 32,28, 921 vacant posts is 4,20,547 , the Defence forces constitute around 15 lakhs with an Indian Army strength of 11 lakh.

Pay commission views : Para number 16.3
16.3 The increases in allowances relate to the following:
a) House Rent Allowance (HRA): This accounts for the principal increase in the expenditure on allowances since it is calculated as a percentage of the basic pay and the rise in basic pay based on recommendations of the Commission would be reflected as increased HRA. The expenditure on account of HRA is likely to go up from ₹12,400 crore to ₹29,600 crore, an increase of ₹17,200 (138.71%). This figure also includes an expenditure of ₹3,700 crore that is likely to occur on account of the expansion in coverage of HRA benefiting personnel serving in the CAPFs (this figures include all Central Government employees including Defence employees)

Hence the additional expenditure towards allowances will not financially impact the Central Government as already 70% of the 7th CPC expenditure has been borne out by the Government, only additional expenditure of just around 30% that is Rs 30,000 crores has to be met by the Central Government. even if 7th CPC report is fully implemented the expenditure towards pay and allowances shall not exceed 10% of the total revenue We hope the Government understands the sentiments of the Central Government employees and announce the revised allowances immediately after the arrival of the Honorable Finance Minister from his official tour to US and Russia, which he is expected to return from foreign assignments on 27th April 2017.

Comradely yours
(P.S.Prasad)
General Secretary

3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi – 56.

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix Level to the Railway employees promoted during the period 01.01.2016 to 31.12.2016.

Please refer to your letter No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B./Part I dated 06.01.2017, wherein it has been demanded that opportunity for revision of option for those staff promoted after the date of notification of Rs(RP) Rules, 2016 (i.e 28.07.2016) and also for those staff promoted between 01.01.2016 and 31.12.2016 to switch over to 7th CPC Pay Matrix from the date subsequent to date of Railway Board’s notification be provided.

2. In this context it is stated that option for switching over to 7th CPC has been circulated and clearly specified under Rule 5 of Rs(RP) Rules, 2016. Further, instructions for exercising the revised option in respect of officials who had got promotion/financial upgradation and had already exercised the option between the date of effect of recommendation (01.01.2016) and date of promulgation of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 (28.07.2016) has also been issued vide Board’s letter RBE no.124/2016 dated 20.10.2016. It has already been notified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules and further in the option form circulated along with RS(RP) Rules that the employee can elect to continue on Pay Band and Grade Pay of his substantive/officiating post until the date of his next increment/date of any subsequent incrment raising he pay to particular limit or from the date of his promotion/upgradation.

3. Form the above, it can be appreciated that employee can continue such time, till promotion or vacation of the post and no cut off date (like 31.12.2016) mentioned in the reference) has been specified. However, the option exercise is final and one time dispensation has been extended to those promoted between 01.01.2016 and 28.07.2016 can not be extended in other cases. Decision on permitting further revision of option once taken can not be taken unilaterally by Ministry of Railways alone and needs to be taken by Ministry of finance as it is a general policy matter pertaining to all Government employees.
