7th Pay Commission Latest News, Updates: Pre-election Salary Bonanza Likely For Central Government Employees And Pensioners

New Delhi, Apr 23: In a pre-election salary bonanza, the government may hike minimum pay and fitment factor, beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission or 7th CPC, for 10 million government employees and pensioners before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, said a media report. The latest report claimed the BJP government would raise minimum pay and fitment factor beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission in a bid to ensure victory in the next general elections.

“Salaries class feel extremely frustrated because of poor pay hike and allowances under BJP regime. In a measure of relief to the central government employees, the government may announce pay hike beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission ahead of the general elections, 2019,” a Sen Times report said. “The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) is under pressure because of brewing anger following cash crunch, dilution of SC, ST Atrocities (Prevention) Act and rape incidents,” it added.

On the delay over hike in minimum pay and fitment factor beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, the report claimed that lack of response from the Finance Ministry to the promise of FM Jaitley over the last two years delayed the matter. Quoting unnamed sources, the report said Arun Jaitley will make an announcement of hike in minimum pay and fitment factor beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The 7th Pay Commission had recommended a 14.27 percent hike in basic pay, raising minimum pay from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000 month with fitment factor 2.57 times. However, the central government employees have been asking to raise minimum pay to Rs 26,000 and fitment factor 3.68 times. The government is reportedly mulling to raise minimum pay to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000 and fitment factor to 3.00 times from 2.57 times that were recommended by the 7th Pay Commission.

Notably, the Minister of State Finance, P Radhakrishnan, last month, told Rajya Sabha the government was not considering a hike in minimum pay and fitment factor beyond the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.

Online appointment restored at CGHS Wellness Centre

Here is good news for Central government pensioners. Full-fledged online appointment has been restored at the CGHS Wellness Centre, located on the premises of the Government Hospital for Mental Care, with effect from April 16, according to T.K. Bhagavanudu, CGHS cardholder and pensioner, who has been fighting for the cause since long.

It may be recalled that the problems of pensioners visiting the CGHS Centre was highlighted in these columns on the headline: “All is not well with Wellness Centre” (Health Watch, March 30, 2018). The problems in accessing the online system for taking appointments was forcing CGHS cardholders, a majority of whom are pensioners, who had retired long ago, to make it to the dispensary before daybreak and await their turn under trees for it open after 8 a.m.

Mr. Bhagavanudu had also raised the issues of inadequacy of doctors and non-availability of drugs at the wellness centre. “I was successful in getting an online appointment on April 16 and on the next day I was able to book an appointment for my wife. Full-fledged online appointment is crucial to save senior citizens from waiting for long hours in queues without food and medicine,” he says.He acknowledged the contribution of All Central Government Employees Pensioners Association leaders KBR Prasad, J. Janardhana Rao and GSN Murthy in his struggle for the revival of the online system.

Revision of the rates of 7th pay commission Night Duty Allowance (NDA) -NFIR

N F I R

New Delhi – 110055

Affiliated to :
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers Federation (ITF)

No. I/5(E)
Dated: 11/04/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) — Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2008/HW-2 dated 16/12/2008 (RBE No. 199/2008).
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2016/HW-1 dated 09/06/2016 (RBE No. 61/2016).
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2008/1/7/2/1 dated 17/11/2017 (RBE No. 169/2017).
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/HW-1 dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No. 36/2018).

Railway Board’s kind attention is invited to the instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 08/03/2018 revising the rates of Night Duty Allowance w.e.f. 01st July, 2017 pursuant to acceptance of the recommendations of 7th CPC.

In this connection, Federation brings to the notice of Railway Board that the rates of Night Duty Allowance were revised in the past vide Board’s letter dated 16/12/2008 (RBE No. 199/2008) pursuant to acceptance of 6th CPC recommendations. These rates of Night Duty Allowance have been revised consequent to sanction of instalments of Dearness Allowance from time to time and last revision has been done vide Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2016/HW-1 dated 09/06/2016 (RBE No. 61/2016).

Federation is constrained to bring to the notice of Railway Board that subsequent to the instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 09/06/2016, the Railway Board vide letter No. PC-VI/2008/1/7/2/1 dated 14/12/2016 (RBE No. 150/2016) issued instructions for enhancement of Dearness Allowance admissible to the Railway employees from 125% to 132% w.e.f. 01/07/2016 and thereafter from 132% to 136% w.e.f. 01/01/2017 (Board’s letter No. PC¬VI/2008/1/7/2/1 dated 17/11/2017 (RBE No. 169/2017). But, however, the Railway Board have not issued corresponding instructions consequent to sanction of instalments of Dearness Allowance w.e.f. 01/07/2016 and 01/01/2017, revising the rates of Night Duty Allowance upwardly and have surprisingly issued orders vide letter dated 08/03/2018 revising the rate of NDA from 1st July, 2017. With this erroneous action of the Railway Board, the Railway staff entitled to receive the Night Duty Allowance have been put to financial loss.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to review and issue instructions duly revising the rates of Night Duty Allowance w.e.f. 01/07/2016 and 01/01/2017 on the basis of grant of instalments of Dearness Allowance and further take action, for enhancing the NDA rates with effect from July 1, 2017. The Federation further states that with the revision with effect from 01/07/2016 and again with effect from 01/01/2017, the staff are required to be paid arrears of revised NDA rates.

A copy of the instruction issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Subject: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP/MACP Scheme and Non Functional Grade to Pharmacists.

The issue of grant of ACP/MACP to Pharmacists on acceptance of Fast Track Committee Report, the Government of India, vide Min of Fin, Deptt of Expenditure F. No. 1/1/2008-IC dated 18.11.2009 was referred to our HQrs office for clarifications on the following points.
(i) Whether the pharmacists (GP Rs2800/-) who have already been granted higher scale/GP (GP 4200/-) by virtue of ACP or otherwise prior to effective date of OM dated 18.11.2009 are again to be allowed Non Functional Upgradation (GP 4200/-) under the above provisions.

(ii) Further, doubt has been raised regarding mode of fixation of pay while on granting ACP after NFU, as in the case of Pharmacists, the scale/GP granted on account of NFU and the standard/common pay scales applicable for ACP in terms of Annexure-II are same and identical i.e. GP of Rs.4200/- in the PB-2.

In this regard a copy of CGDA No-AT/Il/2458-XXIII, dated 01/03/2018 received in this office clarifying the above points is forwarded herewith for information and necessary guidelines.

Subject: Grant of financial upgradation under ACP/ MACP Scheme and Non Functional Grade to Pharmacists.

Reference: Your office letter No Pay/Tech-I/01 (6th CPC) Pharmacist dated 12-01-2017, 20-02-2017 and 14-09-2017.

The issue of grant of ACP/MACP to Pharmacists referred to HQrs Office vide your office letter dated 12-01-2017 has been examined in consultation with other PCsDA/CSDA. As regard to the first point of doubt referred by your office, it is viewed that grant of NFU (in the grade pay of Rs 4200/-) to the pharmacists who have already been granted GP of Rs 4200/- by virtue of ACP or otherwise as on 01-
01-2006 does not appear to be in tune with or supported by the orders regulating the grant of NFU.

2. Further, regarding second doubt raised by your office it is stated that the clarification given at S] No 2 of DOPT OM No 35()34/1/97-Estt (D) (Vol-IV) dated 10-02-2000 clearly stipulates that in cases where pay scale given as selection grade/in-situ promotion is not a part of hierarchy, the pay scale granted by virtue of selection grade/in-situ promotion may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP. In View of the provisions ibid it is viewed that the pay scale/ grade pay of Rs 4200/- granted by virtue of NFU in the cases of pharmacists which is not a part of hierarchy may be treated to have withdrawn on grant of ACP.

This has the aproval of Addl CGDA (PP&W).

7th Pay Commission: 10 major points on government employees salaries

7th Pay Commission: The employees expected that the government would hike minimum pay to Rs 21,000 and fitment factor to 3 times. Several minister including Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley gave their assurances that a high level committee will look into the matter.

7th Pay Commission: Almost two years have passed since about 48 lakh central government employees pinned their hopes to receive minimum pay and fitment factor hike beyond 7th CPC report recommendation. Their hopes were based on the promise of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's statement that the matter would be given due consideration. Here are the 10 major points related to the 7th Pay Commission:   

1. 7th Pay Commission: The hope of central government employees hinges on a few steps taken by government, which directly or indirectly relate to the 7th Pay commission, though the government has said it is not thinking along those lines at all.

2. These moves are surrounding the minimum pay and fitment factor hike. The government in June 2016, revised the minimum pay to Rs 18,000 from previous Rs 7,000 per month, along with fitment factor of 2.57 for central government employees. The employees, however, resented this seeking fitment factor of 3.68 times with minimum pay scale of Rs 26,000.

3. The employees expected that the government would hike minimum pay to Rs 21,000 and fitment factor to 3 times. Several minister including Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley gave their assurances that a high level committee will look into the matter.

4. Recently, salaries of Lt. Governors have been increased by the government to a level that the 7th Pay Commission had recommended for secretary level officers. The LG will now be getting the pay equal to the secretaries at the centre.

5. Following the 7th Pay Commission award on January 1, 2016, the senior most bureaucrat in the country, Cabinet Secretary, gets a salary of Rs 2.5 lakh pay per month, while a secretary rank official is able to draw Rs 2.25 lakh per month.

6. Now the decision of hiking Lt. Governors' salary has been taken just months after Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his 2018-19 Budget announced the revision of emoluments of the President, vice president and governors.

7. The FM Arun Jaitley earlier reported stated that he would prefer to pick and choose lower-level employees and pay hike accordingly rather than salary hike for middle-level employees.

8.The broad middle-level employees, some reports said, would not see much of a raise, mirroring the erstwhile trend of income polarization, thereby shrinking middle-level staff in various departments of the central government.

9. The central government employees, whose salaries are based on pay matrix level 1 to 5, expected hike in minimum pay scale to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000 from April 1, 2018, but they are still waiting, amidst reports that fitment factor will be hiked from 2.57 times to 3 of the basic pay that they received in the 6th Pay Commission. 

10. Fresh reports say that the government is toying with the idea to increase retirement age of the central government employees from 60 to 62 years. The Madhya Pradesh government has already gone ahead. Besides this, reports say employees may soon see a Rs 3000 rise in their minimum pay scale, but it has no official confirmation.

Sub: Payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners: Clarification thereof.

Ref: This office Circular No. 166 dated 07 / 03 / 2013, Circular No. 173 dated 07/04/20 14 and Circular No. 179 dated 12/05/20 15.

Provisions for payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners is laid down in Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions (Deptt. of Pension & Pensioners Welfare) OM No. 45/73/97-P&PW(G) dated 02/07/1999 issued under this office Important Circular No. 07 dated 13/08/ 1999. As per the ibid OM, before 18/07/ 1997, in terms of the existing orders, Dearness Relief to pensioners and family pensioners is to remain suspended during the period a pensioner/family pensioner is re-employed/employed under the Central or State Govt. or in a Statutory Corporation/Company/Body/Bank under them in India or abroad. The above facts are also applicable to the pensioners and family pensioners permanently absorbed in Statutory Corporation/Company/Body/Bank under the Central or State Government.

2. Representations from various agencies as well as pensioners/family pensioners including Pension Disbursing Agencies are being received for clarification on Payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners. The matter has been examined in this office and following points are clarified.

3. However, w.e.f. 18/07/1997, it has been decided by the Govt that:

(i) In so far as re-employed pensioners are concerned, the entire pension admissible is to be ignored at present only in the case of those civilian pensioners who held post below Group ‘A’ and those ex-servicemen who held post below the ranks of Commissioned Officers at the time of their retirement. Their pay, on re-employment, is to be fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which they are re-employed. Such pensioners will consequently be entitled to Dearness Relief on their pension.

(A) For this purpose, the Central Government Departments concerned, including subordinate organizations. State Government, Corporation/Company/Body/Bank etc. employing a Central Government pensioner shall be required to issue of certificate indicating the following:

(a) The re-employed pensioner retired from a civil or military post in the Central Government and was holding a post not included in classified as group ‘A’ or a post below the rank of commissioned officer in the armed forces;

(b) The entire amount of pension sanctioned by the Central Government was ignored in fixation of the pay on re-employment i.e. no part of the pension was taken into account in such fixation of pay in the pay scale of the post in which the Central government retired/retiree was re-employed/absorbed; and

(c) The pay of the re-employed/absorbee was/is fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which he had/has been initially re-employed after his retirement from the Central Government.

(d) If the pay fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of the last pay drawn is being given.

(B) In the cases where PBOR (below Commissioned Officer) retired before attaining the age of 55 years and re-employed thereafter and their pay fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of the last pay drawn were given, the pay should be treated as fixed at a minimum for the purpose of ignoring the entire pension and allowing Dearness Relief on pension. For benefit of advance increments, the policy for the same should exist in the re-employing department and a copy of such policy matter should be enclosed with the required certificate. But, after granting benefit of advance increments, the last pay drawn by the pensioner is protected, the pensioner in such case will not be entitled for dearness relief on pension.

Illustration 1: A Military pensioner was drawing the pay of Rs. 6,330 in the pay scale of Rs. 5,770-140-8,290 from 01/07/2002 and retired from service on 31/10/2002 before attaining the age of 55 years. He was granted a military pension of Rs. 3,165. He was re-employed in a Civil Post on 01/12/2003 in the pay scale of Rs. 5,000-150-8,000. The post which the pensioner held in the Army before retirement is a non-commissioned post. If his pay is fix for Rs. 5,600/- after granting 4 advance increments in re-employed post, then he will be entitled for dearness relief on pension as his pay fix for Rs. 5,600/- in re-employed post is less than Rs. 6,330/-already drawing in the Army before retirement. However, if his pay is fix for Rs. 6,500/- after granting 10 advance increments in the re-employed post, then he will be not entitled for dearness relief on pension as his pay fix for Rs. 6,500/- in re-employed post is more than Rs. 6,330/- already drawing in the Army before retirement as his last pay has been protected.

Illustration 2: If the pensioner quoted in Illustration 1 above is re-employed in a Civil Post in the pay Scale of Rs. 7,500-250-12,000, his pay is required to be fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the re-employed post for payment of dearness relief on pension. Any advance increment granted in such situation, will disqualify dearness relief on pension.

(ii) In all other cases of re-employed pensioners, no dearness relief shall be admissible on pension during the period of their re-employment.

(iii) (A) In terms of the existing orders on the subject, the pay of re-employed pensioners who held Group ‘A’ post or posts of the ranks of Commissioned Officers at the time of their retirement is to be fixed at present

at the same stage as last drawn before retirement or, if there is no such stage, at the stage next above the pay last drawn;

at the maximum of the pay scale, if the pay last drawn is more than the maximum of the pay scale of the post in which re-employed;

at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which re-employed, if it is more than the pay last drawn.

(B) Further, the pay on re-employment is required to be fixed after ignoring only a portion of the pension as revised time to time received for the previous employment. In view of the fact that (i) the pension is taken into account in such cases and not entirely ignored; (ii) The pay in the post of re-employment is not required to be fixed at the minimum of the scale in all cases; and (iii) Dearness Allowance at the rates applicable from time to time is also admissible on the pay fixed in terms of the orders on the subject, these re-employed pensioners will not be entitled, in addition, to any Dearness Relief on their pension.

(iv) Disability element of disability pension is also a type of pension. As such dearness relief on such service/disability pension (including disability element) during re-employment is required to be regulated as per the above procedure.

(v) Payment of dearness relief where discontinued due to re-employment, shall become admissible only with effect from the date they cease to be re-employed. The Pension Disbursing Authority shall require such a pensioner to produce certificate of cessation of re-employment from the office in which the pensioner had been re-employed.

(vi) However, dearness relief is payable to those re-employed pensioners who get consolidated pay without dearness allowance, consolidated fee, daily wages, or elected as Members of Legislative Assembly or Parliament, Ministers/Deputy Ministers of Central or State Government, Indian Red Cross Society and Extra Departmental Agents in the Department of Post.

(vii) As regards employed family pensioners, since the family pension received by the eligible dependents of Central Government employees is, in any case, not taken into account in determining their pay on employment, Dearness Relief at the rates applicable from time to time shall be admissible on their family pension.
