7th Pay Commission: Govt employees can smile as HRA hike is confirmed

There may be a slight delay in the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. However the good news is that 47 lakh central government employees are set to get a major HRA hike.

 The question is whether the Cabinet will take up the recommendations of the pay panel on June 28th or not. If the Cabinet is busy with the GST roll out on June 28 then it will be taken up in the next meet on the following Wednesday, highly placed sources informed OneIndia.

HRA hike confirmed: 

The government will finalise 7th pay commission allowances, including HRA later this month. National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra says that the 7th Pay Commission may be finalised by the end of this month. There is a good possibility of central government officials getting higher HRA than that recommended by the pay panel.

GST or pay commission: 

Finance Ministry sources said that they are very busy with the GST roll out. Earlier there were rumours that the GST roll out would be postponed to August 1. However Finance Ministry Arun Jaitley dismissed the rumours and said that it would happen on July 1. The employee union leaders said that the Cabinet will take up the matter relating to higher allowances and HRA on June 28.

Agenda not fixed: 

The agenda for the Cabinet meeting has not yet been fixed. On the June 28 meeting, the Cabinet is likely to give preference to GST, India's biggest tax reform. Sources said that time would be made for the higher allowances and HRA as per the 7th Pay Commission. However if further discussion is needed, then the issue would be taken up in the next cabinet meeting.

Grievance reports: 

The Finance Ministry is likely to seek a report from each of the ministries on the grievances of the central government employees. In the report the respective ministries would put-forth the problems being faced by the central government employees. These would be taken into account before a final announcement is made.

Will it be a phased roll out: 

It is not clear whether the higher allowances and HRA as per the 7th Pay Commission will be rolled out in one shot or in a phased manner. The centre would take into account the burden on the exchequer. Sources said that the government does not want to delay the matter and hence is doing its best for a one time roll out. Moreover there is a concern following the IB report which states that the unrest is growing among the central government employees. The centre would not want to take chances. With the GST roll out round the corner, the centre cannot afford a mass strike by the Central Government employees.

Extension of age limit of retired Railway Doctors as Contact Medical Practitioners upto the age of 70 years

N F I R 
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

Dated: 20.06.2017

The Director General (Personnel),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

The Director General (RHS),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Extension of age limit of retired Railway Doctors as Contact Medical Practitioners upto the age of 70 years-reg.

Ref: NFIR’s letter No. 11/13 (B) dated 10/05/2016, 23/05/2016, 22/08/2016, 25/11/201614/02/2017 & 10/04/2017.

Kind attention is invited to Federation’s letters cited above and my discussions with DG(P) wherein the Federation had requested that the retired Railway Doctors may be allowed to be reappointed upto the age of 70 years on the specific recommendation of concerned CMD for such appointment against a vacant post. As a result of discussions, the DG (P) said that the Board would consider processing the case for permitting the retired Railway Doctors for reappointment subject to the upper age limit being 68 years.

It is, however, learnt that there has been no progress towards revising the existing age limit of 65 years upwardly. Federation, therefore, once again requests to kindly arrange to take necessary action for allowing the reappointment of retired Railway Doctors on the specific approval of concerned CMD atleast upto the age of 68 years.

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

In this connection, attention is invited to‘ Para 1 and 9 of Annexure of DOP&T OM No.3534/3/2008-Estt.(D) dated 19th May 2009, which stipulates that
".....
1) There shall be three financial upgradations under the MACPS, counted from the direct entry grade on completion off 10, 20 and 30 years service respectively. Financial upgradation under this scheme will be admissible Whenever a person has spent 10 years continuously in the same grade pay.

9) Regular service for the purpose of the MACPS shall commence from the date of joining of a post in direct entry grade on a regular basis either on direct recruitment basis or on absorption/re-employment basis. Service rendered on adhoc/contract basis before regular appointment on pre-appointment training shall not be taken into reckoning. However, past continuous regular service in another Government Department in a post carrying same grade pay prior to regular appointment in a new Department, without a break shall also
be counted towards qualifying regular service for the purpose of MACPs only( and not for the regular promotions). However, benefits under the MACPS in such cases shall be considered till the satisfactory completion of the probation period.

Further, it is also intimated that the matter was referred to DoPT, for treating AAO as fresh recruits after passing of SAS Part II Exams and it has been clarified by DOP&T that Departmental Examination is one of the fast track mode of promotion and the appointment on the base of Limited Departmental Examination cannot be treated as direct recruitment and the orders of C & AG dated 20.06.2016 is not consistent with the instructions of the Government. Further, DoPT has opined that treating AAO as a fresh recruits for the purpose of benefit of MACP will be violative of the provisions of RR.

Accordingly, the representations received in this regard may be replied at your end.

No. 4/43/88-P&PW(D) dated 16.10.1989. The terms and conditions for absorption of Government employees consequent on conversion of a Government Department into a PSU or autonomous body issued vide this Department’s O.M. No. 4/18/87-P&PW(D) dated 5.7.1989 also provided for a similar option of lump sum payment in lieu of monthly pension.

2. In accordance with Rule 37-A of the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, incorporated vide Department of Expenditure’s Notification No. 44(l)-E.V./71 dated 09.04.1973, on exercise of the above option, an employee was entitled to a lump sum amount not exceeding the commuted value of one-third of the pension and terminal benefit equal to twice the aforesaid lump-sum amount, subject to the condition that the Government servant surrendered his right of drawing two-thirds of his pension.

3. The option to draw a lump sum amount in lieu of pension was withdrawn vide this Department’s O.M. No. 4/42/91-P&PW(D) dated 31st March, 1995. Accordingly, the erstwhile Rule 37-A was omitted from the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972 vide Notification No. 4/42/91-P&PW(D) dated 25.06.1997.

4. In implementation of the Order dated 15.12.1995 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in WP(C) No. 11855/85, instructions were issued vide this Department’s O.M.

Ganesan, an officer in the office of Controller General of Accounts, held that surrendering of the right for drawal of 2/3rd of Pension after its commutation, as provided under Rule 37-A (b), was repugnant to Section 12 of the Pensions Act, 1871 and that the petitioner was lawfully entitled for the restoration of his pension after the expiry of the period of commutation of 2/3rd pension. Hon’ble High Court, accordingly, directed restoration of 2/3rd pension and payment of arrears accordingly.

6. An SLP(Civil) No. 4054/2008 (converted into Civil Appeal No. 6048/2010) was filed by the Union of India challenging the aforesaid order dated 02-08-2007 of Hon’ble High Court of Judicature of Madras. In its order dated 1.9.2016, Hon’ble Supreme Court found no justification to interfere with the order dated 02.08.2007 of Hon’ble High Court directing restoration of 2/3rd pension in respect of the respondent (Shri K. Ganesan), after the expiry of the requisite period of commutation. The Civil Appeal No. 6048/2010 was accordingly dismissed by Hon’ble Supreme Court. In the said judgement dated 1.9.2016, similar direction was passed by Hon’ble Supreme Court in the Civil Appeal No. 6371/2010 for restoration of 2/3rd pension in respect of the petitioners, Shri K.L.

It has been decided to extend the benefit of order dated 02-08-2007 of the Hon’ble Madras High Court and the Order dated 01-09-2016 of the Hon’ble Supreme Court to all similarly placed absorbee pensioners. Accordingly, all such absorbee petitioners who had taken 100% lump-sum amount in lieu of pension on absorption in PSUs/Autonomous Bodies in accordance with the then existing Rule 37-A and in whose case 1/3 pension had been restored after 15 years, may be allowed restoration of full pension after expiry of commutation period of 15 years from the date of payment of 100% lump-sum amount.
