Promotion and Seniority: Between date of effect of 6th CPC and implementation regarding merged grades: Clarification by Railway Board



R.B.Estt. No.107/2012
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA / BHARAT SARKAR
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS / RAIL MANTRALAYA
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No.E(NG)I-2009/PM1/4 
New Delhi, dated 26.09.2012
The General Managers,
All Indian Railways & PUs
(As per mailing list)

Sub: Status of Promotions, made between date of effect and date of Implementation of recommendations of 6th CPC, and Seniority of Staff in merged grades in pursuance of Recommendations of 6th CPC.

     The issue of status of promotions made between date of effect and date of effect and date of implementation of 6th CPC and seniority of staff in case where two or more pre-revised grades were merged and placed in a common grade pay, in consonance with the recommendations of 6th CPC, was under consideration of Ministry of Railways in consultation with Department of Personnel & Training (DoP&T).

2.    The matter has since been examined and it has been decided that status of promotions and seniority of staff holding post in grades which have been merged in pursuance to recommendations of 6th CPC will be determined as under :-
(I) The promotions made between 01.01.2006 to 04.09.2008 date of implementation of 6th CPC on Railways will be protected as the same were made as per the provisions of statutory rules existing at that time. The merger of the pay scale(s) of the post(s) as recommended by 6th CPC have been made effective w.e.f. 01.01.2006; the seniority of government servant which existed on 04.09.2008 will be maintained. i.e., the holder of post having higher pay scale or post which constituted promotion post for the posts in the feeder grade, will rank enblock senior to those holding post having lower pay scale or the posts in feeder grade.
(II) where posts having different pay scales prior to 6th CPC recommendations and now after merger have come to lie in the same Pay Band with same Grade Pay, the inter-se seniority of all the employees will be fully maintained with employee in a pre-revised pay scale being placed higher vis-à-vIs an employee in a lower revised pay scale being placed higher visá-vis an employee in a lower pay scale. Within the same pre-revised pay scale, seniority which existed prior to revision would continue.
(III) Where recruitment for the posts in different pre-revised pay scale(s) was initiated separately for each posts, prior to acceptance of recommendations of 6th CPC, i.e., prior to 04.09.2008 but selected individual joined duty on or after 05.09.2008 in the revised pay scale(s) against the posts which have been granted same Grade Pay, such staff will be assigned seniority enbloc below those who were in position as on 04.09.2008.
(IV) The availability of staff nominated on the basis of panel of promotion given by DPC or Select List given by Selection Board will be decided as on 04.09.2008. In case a staff from the panel given by DPC or Select List given by the Selection Board has joined on or prior to 04.09.2008. then status of all the staff included in panel given by DPC or Select List will be protected and all staff will be considered available and their seniority determined by following the basic principe of seliority, i.e., order of panel given by DPC or merit list given by Selection Board. In case all the staff included In the panel given by DPC or Select List given by Selection Board joins after 04.09.2008, then the seniority of such staff within a grade, will be determined by placing them below all available staff as on04.09.2008 but maintaining their inter-se seniority in order of panel of DPC or merit list given by Selection Board.
3.      All the cases of determination of seniority except merged MTS posts will be decided accordingly. The issue of determination of seniority of merged MTS (erstwhile Group ‘D’) posts would be taken up separately.

Hindi version will follow.

Armed forces personnel dissatisfied with One Rank, One Pension scheme


Though the UPA government has rolled out the One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme for exservicemen, and tried to bridge the gap between pre and post-January 2006 retirees, resentment is brewing among serving and retired armed forces personnel, who have termed it an ‘eyewash’ and a feeble attempt at “rectification” of a fault dating back to 2006.

Several ex-servicemen, as well as serving armed forces personnel, pointed out on Tuesday that after the Government’s Rs. 2300 crore package for pensioners, a sepoy would be entitled to a total increase of Rs. 622 per month in his pension, and the raise would be Rs. 761 for a havildar.

Among the officers, a Lieutenant Colonel, on an average, would get a raise of Rs. 565 per month.

They pointed out that several anomalies still remain, and none of the core issues, raised by the three Service Chiefs in August with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, have been accepted.

Among other things, the three Service Chiefs had asked for the resolution of serving personnel issues, like fixation of common payscales for all JCOs and Other Ranks, grant of non-functional upgradation status to commissioned officers, and one rank one pension to the retired personnel. The Chiefs had also pointed out disparities between officers in uniform and their civilian counterparts.

Citing an example, some officers pointed out disparities in nine organisations of Group A services within the armed forces, where a superintendent engineer was at par with a colonel, but after non-functional upgradation (NFU), had become equivalent to a Major General, whereas the chief engineer, higher in status in that very organisation, was equivalent to a Brigadier.

While pledging to continue their struggle for their rights, ex-servicemen said the pension hike, announced on Monday, amounted to “wrong and deceitful” treatment of their long-pending OROP demand.

“It is deceiving. The Government has wrongly interpreted the term ‘One Rank One Pension’ (OROP). They haven’t given OROP; instead they have just merely made an enhancement in pension,” Chairman of Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM) Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Raj Kadyan, said here.

IESM on Tuesday wrote to Dr. Singh, Defence Minister A.K. Antony, and the three Service chiefs, explaining how the government decision doesn’t meet their long-pending demand to provide equitable pensions.

One Rank One Pension, the following have been approved by the Cabinet:


Rs.2300 crore approved to meet the demands of Ex-servicemen pensioners
 
The Union Cabinet has approved the recommendations of the Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary for benefits to ex-servicemen on four issues.   The financial implications of the improvements made as per the Cabinet decision on the four items are broadly estimated at Rs.2300 crore per annum.  The details are as follows:

I.             One Rank One Pension:

On One Rank One Pension, the demand of the Defence Forces and Ex-Servicemen Associations is that uniform pension be paid to the Defence Forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement and any future enhancement in the rates of pension be automatically passed on to the past pensioners.

            The difference in the pension of present and past pensioners in the same rank occurs on account of the number of increments earned by the defence personnel in that rank.  There is also a difference between the pension of pre 1.1.06 and post 1.1.06 retirees belonging to a particular rank.  The UPA Government on two previous occasions has taken decisions to narrow the gap between the present and past pensioners, particularly those belonging to the ranks of JCOs and Other Ranks.

            On the issue of One Rank One Pension, the following have been approved by the Cabinet:

(i)         Bridging of the gap in the pension of pre 1.1.06 and post 1.1.06 JCO/OR retirees by determining the pension of pre 1.1.06 retirees on the basis of notional maximum for ranks and groups across the three Services as in the case of post 1.1.06 retirees.  In addition, the weightage of qualifying service in the ranks of Sepoys, Naik and Havaldar would be increased by two years for both pre and post 1.1.06 retirees.
(ii)        The pension of pre 1.1.06 Commissioned Officer pensioners would be stepped up with reference to the minimum of fitment table for the ranks instead of the minimum of pay band.
         
These are expected to largely meet the demands of the defence pensioners on one rank one pension.

II.                   Enhancement of Family Pension :

(i)                   The pension of pre - 1.1.2006 family pensioners(Commissioned Officers, Honorary Commissioned Officers, JCOs/ORs ) be stepped up based on the minimum of the fitment table instead of the minimum of the Pay Band;

(i)            Establishing linkage of the family pension with the pension of JCOs/ORs, in those cases where the death takes place after the retirement of the JCO/OR since such a JCO/OR drew a pension based on the maximum of the pay scales, 60% of the pension applicable to JCO/OR pensioners would be granted to the family pensioner in case of normal family pension calculated a 30% of last pay drawn. Accordingly, based on the rank, group and length of service of the deceased JCO/OR pensioner, his pension would first be determined on notional basis. In cases where death of JCO/OR took place after retirement, the family pensioners in receipt of normal family pension would become entitled to 60% of the said pension determined on notional basis and those in receipt of enhanced family pension will be entitled to 100% of this pension. Similar entitlements would be determined in the case of Special Family Pension; and

(ii)                 The family pensioner of the JCO/OR would be granted pension arrived at on the basis of the family pension worked out as per the formulation at (i) above or the pension on the basis of stepping up with reference to the minimum of the fitment table, whichever is beneficial. Further, the linkage of family pension with retiring pension be applied in the case of post 1.1.2006 family pensioners of JCOs/ORs also.

III.           Dual Family Pension:
Dual family pension would be allowed in the present and future cases where the pensioner drew, is drawing or may draw pension for military service as well as for civil employment.

IV.          Family pension to mentally / physically challenged children of armed forces personnel on marriage:

Grant of family pension to mentally/physically challenged children who drew, are drawing or may draw family pension would continue even after their marriage.

The above recommendations made by the Committee on pension issues of Ex-Servicemen may be implemented from a prospective date and payment made accordingly.

EXPECTED APPROVAL FROM UNION CABINET ON ( DA)DEARNESS ALLOWANCE JULY 2012 TODAY


 The Union Cabinet is expected to meet this evening to consider a 7 per cent hike in the Dearness Allowance (DA) of Central government employees.

Once approved, it will benefit over 52 lakh government employees.

The Cabinet will also take a decision on computerisation of the Public Distribution System (PDS). A Food Ministry proposal seeks to digitise ration cards and fully computerise the PDS network especially at the back-end.

The meetings of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) and Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure (CCI), scheduled for Friday, were postponed apparently in view of the rapid political developments in the aftermath of the government's decision to hike diesel prices and operationalise its earlier move to allow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multi- brand retail.

The hike in dearness allowance will be effective from July 1, 2012, and the employees would be entitled to arrears from that date.

The additional burden on exchequer on account of increase in DA would be around Rs. 5,000 crore for the eight-month period between July, 2012 and February, 2013. It will be Rs. 7,400 crore for the full financial year.

The government had last increased DA in March this year from 58 per cent to 65 per cent, which was effective from January 1, 2012. It will now be increased to 72 per cent.

The government periodically hikes the DA, which is linked to consumer price index for industrial workers. The consumer price index (CPI) based on movement in retail prices, soared to 10.03 per cent in August, from 9.86 per cent in July.

Finance Minister approves the Operational Features of the Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme


The Union Finance Minister Shri P. Chidambaram approved a new tax saving scheme called “Rajiv Gandhi Equity Saving Scheme“(RGESS),exclusively for the first time retail investors in Securities Market. This Scheme would give tax benefits to new investors who invest up to Rs. 50,000 and whose annual income is below Rs. 10 lakh.

The Scheme not only encourages the flow of savings and improves the depth of domestic capital markets, but also aims to promote an ‘equity culture’ in India. This is also expected to widen the retail investor base in the Indian securities markets.

Salient features of the Scheme are as under:

a. Scheme is open to new retail investors, identified on the basis of their PAN numbers. This includes those who have opened the Demat Account but have not made any transaction in equity and /or in derivatives till the date of notification of this Scheme and all those account holders other than the first account holder who wish to open a fresh account.
b. Those investors whose annual taxable income is ≤ Rs. 10 lakhs are eligible under the Scheme.
c. The maximum Investment permissible under the Scheme is Rs. 50,000 and the investor would get a 50% deduction of the amount invested from the taxable income for that year.
d. Under the Scheme, those stocks listed under the BSE 100 or CNX 100, or those of public sector undertakings which are Navratnas, Maharatnas and Miniratnas would be eligible. Follow-on Public Offers (FPOs) of the above companies would also be eligible under the Scheme. IPOs of PSUs, which are getting listed in the relevant financial year and whose annual turnover is not less than Rs. 4000 Crore for each of the immediate past three years, would also be eligible.
e. In addition, considering the requests from various stakeholders, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Mutual Funds (MFs) that have RGESS eligible securities as their underlying and are listed and traded in the stock exchanges and settled through a depository mechanism have also been brought under RGESS.
f. To benefit the small investors, the investments are allowed to be made in instalments in the year in which tax claims are made.

g. The total lock-in period for investments under the Scheme would be three years including an initial blanket lock-in period of one year, commencing from the date of last purchase of securities under RGESS.
h. After the first year, investors would be allowed to trade in the securities in furtherance of the goal of promoting an equity culture and as a provision to protect them from adverse market movements or stock specific risks as well as to give them avenues to realize profits.
i. Investors would, however, be required to maintain their level of investment during these two years at the amount for which they have claimed income tax benefit or at the value of the portfolio before initiating a sale transaction, whichever is less, for at least 270 days in a year. The calculation of 270 days includes those days pursuant to the day on which the market value of the residual shares /units has automatically touched the stipulated value after the date of debit.
j. The general principle under which trading is allowed is that whatever is the value of stocks / units sold by the investor from the RGESS portfolio, RGESS compliant securities of at least the same value are credited back into the account subsequently. However, the investor is allowed to take benefits of the appreciation of his RGESS portfolio, provided its value, as on the previous day of trading, remains above the investment for which they have claimed income tax benefit.
k. For the purpose of valuation of shares, the closing price as on the previous day of the date of trading will be considered so that new investors are certain about their debits and credits into the account.
l. In case the investor fails to meet the conditions stipulated, the tax benefit will be withdrawn.

Like all financial products which have reached out substantially to the retail investors (post office savings, life insurance policies etc) through tax benefits, this tax break for direct investment in equity is expected to substantially encourage the retail participation in securities market as well as to enhance their participation in the growth of Indian industry. Entry of more retail investors are expected to further deepen the securities markets as they bring in long-term stable funds, which can counteract the volatility created by the liquidity providers of the market. The Scheme, thus, also furthers the goal of financial stability and promotes financial inclusion. Since Exchange Traded Funds and Mutual Funds have also been brought under the Scheme, the Scheme should provide encouragement and re-assurance to the first time investors.

The broad provisions of the Scheme and the income tax benefits under it have already been incorporated as a new Section - 80CCG - of the Income Tax Act, 1961, as amended by the Finance Act, 2012.

Department of Revenue will notify the Scheme and SEBI will issue the relevant circulars to operationalize the Scheme in the next two weeks.

Central government employees, pensioners set to get 7% DA hike


Reeling under the impact of diesel price hike and high inflation, the 80 lakh central government employees and pensioners are likely to soon get seven percent increase in dearness allowance.

NEW DELHI: Reeling under the impact of diesel price hike and high inflation, the 80 lakh central government employees and pensioners are likely to soon get seven percent increase in dearness allowance (DA).

The meeting has chalked out a road map so that the CAPFs are able to remove these deficiencies in the next recruitment cycle starting in December, 2012. The increased representation of minorities and women in the forces was also discussed in the meeting.

Emphasis was also laid on the procurement process existing in CAPFs especially in the light of the second phase of Police Modernization during the 12th Five Year Plan. The plan presently envisages procurement of equipment worth about Rs.11,000 crores during the current Five Year Plan with yearly procurement being over Rs.2000.

Creating a nationwide public awareness regarding the CAPFs amongst the youth of the country and also to showcase their achievements in the most difficult areas of deployment was also discussed. The meeting also provided a platform to each of the forces to show case their best practices in operational welfare and administration activities.

Earlier, in February 2012 Shri Jitendra Singh had first review meeting which had specifically focused on welfare activities amongst the CAPFs with special emphasis on their growing areas of concerns. These meetings also provide a platform for better inter-force coordination amongst the CAPFs such as Border Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force, Central Industrial Security Force, Indo-Tibetan Border Force, Sashastra Seema Bal, National Security Guard and Assam Rifles.

Armed forces’ pay fixation: Govt may accept 4 demands


The government is keen to accept at least four of the armed forces’ demands on fixation of their pay and pension. The high-powered committee set up by PM Manmohan Singh has given its ideas wherein it has accepted that some of the demands of the forces need to be met immediately as there are glaring anomalies, sources said.

Sources said the committee has recommended that the armed forces be given non-functional upgradation (NFU) to match their counterparts in the IPS, IAS and paramilitary forces.

The grade pay is another issue, the committee has suggested, can be looked into. Thirdly, it has agreed that a common payscale be evolved for in-service jawans. Lastly, it has agreed on removal of all anomalies towards one rank one pension (OROP).

Meanwhile, a fresh calculation has been ordered following a Supreme Court judgment relating to a 25-year-old pay-related case filed by Major Dhanapalan. The court ruled in his favour to correct the anomaly and will impact all officers who were serving then and now.

This had to be factored in before a final announcement. The PM can still make changes as Defence Minister AK Antony was very keen on resolving matters at the earliest and in favour of the forces.

The committee headed by Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth was formed following an intervention from PM Manmohan Singh on July 8 this year.

The forces protested that they had no representative; the committee specially met the three service chiefs. Its mandate was to deal with six issues of serving officers and jawans and another four issues relating to those who retired.

Sources said the committee was unanimous on payscale for jawans, OROP, grade pay and NFU. The most serious was the NFU issue. The Sixth Central Pay Commission (CPC) recommendations were out in October 2008. The IAS in the post of Joint Secretary (JS) to the Government of India was made eligible for a grade pay of Rs 10,000 a month on completing 22 years of service.


WHAT THE HIGH-POWERED PANEL SAYS

Armed forces be given non-functional upgrade to match their counterparts in the IPS, IAS and paramilitary forces
Grade pay can be looked into
A Common payscale be evolved for in-service jawans
Anomalies be removed towards one rank-one pension

Passport, CGHS Card, Driving Licence, Voter’s ID Card and Aadhaar Number issued by UIDAI.

   2. During his service and at the time of retirement, a Government servant is required to give details of his family, including date of birth of its members, in Form 3. Date of birth/age of the members of family mentioned by the Government servant in Form 3 was not mandatory to be verified by the Head of Office.

   3. Some representations have been received in this Department regarding the hardship being caused to old family pensioners in getting the additional pension on account of incorrect recording of the date of birth/age in the PPO.

   4. The matter has been considered in this Department in consultation with the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure and the following decisions have been made:

   i. Since the date of birth of the Government servant is recorded in the PPO on the basis of the service records and the date of superannuation etc, also is determined on the basis of this date of birth, there is no question of allowing change in the date of birth of the retired/deceased pensioner in the PPO.

   ii. The request for change of date of birth/age of the family pensioner (parents and spouse) in the PPO may be submitted by a pensioner/family pensioner to the Head of the Department of the organisation where the Government servant had last served along with at least one of the documents mentioned in Para 1 above and a declaration on a non-judicial stamp paper regarding the correct date of birth of the family pensioner. The Head of the Department may allow the change in the date of birth of the family pensioner if he is satisfied that the conditions indicated in this Department’s OM No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 21.5.2009 have been fulfilled and that a bona-fide mistake has been made in recording the date of birth in the PPO.

   iii. No other document will be accepted for allowing the change in date of birth/age of the family pensioner in the PPO.

   iv. In order to avoid any possibility of recording an incorrect date of birth in the PPO, in future, the Government servant may be required to submit one of the documents indicated in Para 1 above as proof of date of birth of spouse or parents along with the details of family in Form 3. In the case of children certificate of birth from the Municipal authorities or from the local panchayat or from the head of a recognised school if the child is studying in such a school or from a Board of Education may be accepted.
