Posting of Husband and Wife at the Same Station - Dopt orders

Concerning the posting at the same place of husband and wife who are working in Government service, the transfer issues have been raised in Parliament on several occasions. In 1980’s these demands began to show its seriousness, because the percentage of women employees were increased in joining the Government services. The Central Government also observed this issue from various forums, a circular had been issued by the Department of Social Welfare in Feb 1976 to all Head of Departments to give serious consideration to the requests of posting of husband and wife at the same station. In order to that order, lot of women employees started to send their request to transfer at the place where their husbands are posted.

The Central Government gave its utmost importance to this issue and as far as possible and within the constraints of administrative feasibility, the husband and wife should be posted at the same station to enable them to lead a normal family life and to ensure the education and welfare of their children. The Department of Personnel and Training issued an OM on 3.4.86, in accordance with the guidelines and instructions in the order given by the Government, all cadre controlling authorities should consider such requests with the utmost sympathy.

The Department of Personnel and Training issued various office memorandums regarding this matter from time to time. The motive of the Government on the petitioners, said in the orders repeatedly, to give utmost importance attached to the enhancement of women’s status in all walks of life and to enable them to lead a normal family life as also to ensure the education and welfare of the children.

Till recently, the persmin has issued total of six orders pertaining the above subject on its website. After implementation of the 6th CPC, the last order has been issued on 30.09.2009. The order said that “On the basis of the 6th CPC reprot, Government servants have already been allowed the facility of Child Care Leave which is admissible till the children attain 18 years of age”. The consolidated guidelines concerened this subject has been provided in the OM dated 12.06.1997. The consolidated guidelines has been amended and published in the last order after implementation of 6th CPC.

In the main guidelines, ”The husband & wife, if working in the same Department and if the required level of post is available, should invariably be posted together in order to enable them to lead a normal family life and look after the welfare of their children especially till the children attain 18 years of age. This will not apply on appointment under the central Staffing Scheme. Where only wife is a Govt. servant, the above concessions would be applicable to the Govt. servant. Complaints are sometimes received that even if posts are available in the station of posting of the spouse, the administrative authorities do not accommodate the employees citing administrative reasons. In all such cases, the cadre controlling authority should strive to post the employee at the station of the spouse and in case of inability to do so, specific reasons, therefor, may be communicated to the employee”.

Subject: Review of the Recruitment Rules/Service Rules (RRs/SRs) — reg.

DOPT vide OM AB-14017/14/2018-Estt.(RR) dated 31.12.2010 issued instructions laying down guidelines for framing/ amendment/relaxation of Recruitment Rules. Para 3.1.5 Of the guidelines provide that the recruitment/ rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view effecting such change as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reductions in the strength of the lower and higher-level posts. Subsequently, this Division vide OM No. AB-14017/61/2008-Estt.(RR) dated 25.03.2014 re-iterated these instructions.

2. However, it has come to the notice of this Department that many Ministries/Departments are not undertaking the aforesaid exercise as stipulated. Resultantly, recruitment/promotion of officers/ employees are continued to be made on the basis of RRs which are not updated and continued to reflect old positions. It is a matter of concern that the decisions taken by the Government on the basis of pay Commission Recommendations, Court directions, Expert Committee Recommendations etc remain un-reflected in the relevant RRs/SRs

3. Since RRs are statutory in nature and all promotions/appointments are made as the provisions in the RRs/SRs, it is imperative that the RRs/SRs are updated in accordance with DoP&T instructions issued from time to lime. In view of this, Ministries/Departments are impressed upon to immediately undertake the exercise for review Of existing RRs/SRs which have not been amended in the last five years and intimate this Department about the outcome of the exercise so undertaken.

Various Types of Pay Matrix Table for Government Employees

Various Types of Pay Matrix Table for Government Employees

7th Central Pay Commission recommended new and innovative pay structure table for all group of Central Government employees including Defence Personnel in its report. The table called as “Pay Matrix Table”.

The Pay Matrix Table comprises two dimensions. It has a “horizontal range” in which each level corresponds to a ‘functional role in the hierarchy’ and has been assigned the numbers 1, 2, and 3 and so on till 18. The “vertical range” for each level denotes ‘pay progression’ within that level. The minimum pay starts with 18000 and maximum pay is 250000.

The fitment in the new matrix is essentially a multiple factor of 2.57. This multiple is the ratio of the new minimum pay arrived at by the Commission (₹18,000) and the existing minimum pay (₹7,000). The fitment factor is being applied uniformly to all employees. It includes a factor of 2.25 to account for DA neutralisation, assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay as on 01.01.2016. The actual raise/fitment being recommended by the Commission is 14.29 percent. An identical fitment of 2.57 has also been applied to the existing rates of Military Service Pay (MSP), applicable to defence forces personnel only. The Pay Matrix Table for all group of CG Employees and Officers. To fix the pay and fix the pay on promotion or MACP and also calculate increment with the help of Pay Matrix Table very easily, no need of any calculation.

Text of letter No.AIBOC/2018/28 dated 01.05.2018

The Additional Secretary,
Department of Financial Services
Govt of India
NEW DELHI

Dear Sir,

Issues affecting Banking Sector

Thank you very much for inviting us for a discussion. We thank the Ministry for the following:

1.The IBA has called us for the Wage Negotiation on 5th May 2018 after our meeting with the Secretary, DFS on 21.03.2018.
2.The implementation of Ind As has been deferred by one year giving small relief to Banks.
3.RBI has reduced the provision for accounts transferred to NCLT by 40% instead of 50%.
4.The provision for Investment Fluctuation has been allowed to be spread for 4 quarters instead of one.

However the following issues remain and we request your urgent intervention.

Wage Revision: The issue of restricted mandate has not been settled yet. SBI, PNB, UBI, Indian Bank, CBI and BOB have given restricted mandate. This requires your personal intervention.
There is widespread disenchantment with the salary structure. Recently Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telengana Govts. have given a good salary hike. Hence, we request your intervention for a decent wage hike without looking at the Net Profit as Banks are instrumental in implementing the Govt. schemes without any compensation. Moreover, in the last 3 years Banks have written off Rs. 2,41,000 Crores and our Wage Revision cost will be negligible in comparison. Without employee satisfaction the Banks can’t grow.

The starting basic of an officer in Govt is Rs.56100/-
The starting basic of an officer in RBI is Rs.35150 /-
The starting basic of an officer in LIC is Rs.33745/-
The starting basic of an officer in Bank is Rs.23700/-

Basic Pay is crucial for everything including superannuation. Hence we request that it should be similar to that of the Central Govt. Officers as presented by the Pillai Committee.

Our other demands are:

i)Five Day Week
ii)Regulated Working Hours
iii)Child care leave for ladies with salary
iv)Crèche facility
v)Assured Pension etc.
[Copy of Charter of Demands & Further Notes submitted to IBA enclosed]

Appointment of Officer Director / Employee Director. At present no Public Sector Bank has an Officer Director or Employee Director.

Implementation of the Recommendation of the Parliament Standing Committee on NPA. If the recommendations are implemented the entire Banking Industry can be saved. (Copy of the Report enclosed)

Please don’t levy tax on Gross Profit. The tax should be on net profit. RBI should provide interest on CRR which at present is almost one lakh crores. This will help the Banks.

Reimburse Expenditure on Govt Schemes. The expenditure on Jandhan, Pension Yojana and other Govt Schemes if reimbursed will help the Banks.

Stop Cross Selling: In the name of Universal Banking we have allowed Banks to sell insurance, Mutual Funds & other products. The huge incentive has lead to misselling. Please intervene. (Note Enclosed)

Review PCA: The 11 banks under PCA have not improved their performance. Hence a review is needed.

Review IBC & NCLT: Both have created lot of problems. They are not helping Banks but benefit the defaulters and new purchasers of the companies. Urgent steps are needed.

Yours faithfully,
