Doctors retirement age enhanced to 65-PIB NEWS

Cabinet approves Enhancement of age of superannuation of doctors other than Central Health Service (CHS) doctors to 65 years

 The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the enhancement of age of superannuation of doctors other than Central Health Service (CHS) doctors to 65 years in the following manner:

 i.  Ex-post facto approval to enhance the superannuation age of doctors of Indian Railways Medical Service to 65 years.
 ii. Ex-post facto approval to enhance the superannuation age to 65 years for doctors working in Central Universities and IITs (Autonomous Bodies) under Department of Higher Education and doctors in Major Port Trusts (Autonomous Bodies) under Ministry of Shipping.
iii. The superannuation age has been enhanced to 65 years in respect of doctors under their administrative control of the respective Ministries/Departments [M/o of AYUSH (AYUSH Doctors), Department of Defence (civilian doctors under Directorate General of Armed Forces Medical Service), Department of Defence Production (Indian Ordnance Factories Health Service Medical Officers), Dental Doctors under D/o Health & Family Welfare, Dental doctors under Ministry of Railways and of doctors working in Higher Education and Technical Institutions under Department of Higher Education].
iv. The Union Cabinet has further approved that doctors shall hold the administrative posts till the date of attaining the age of 62 years and thereafter their services shall be placed in Non-Administrative positions.

The decision would help in better patient care, proper academic activities in Medical colleges as also in effective implementation of National Health Programmes for delivery of health care services.

7th Pay Commission: January salary of Central Govt employees set to rise

Minimum pay hike may rise to Rs 21,000 from the current Rs 18,000.

Three times rise in fitment factor is expected in the new pay hike.

Month of January 2018 may bring higher salaries for central government employees who are likely to receive a new pay hike.

“The government is planning to hike the basic salaries over 7th Pay Commission recommendations. If the cabinet gives the nod in this regard, it will be effected January 2018,” an official was quoted by The Sen Times in a report on Monday.

Further the official added, “The fitment factor for basic pay will be raised to 3.00 times from 2.57 times as approved by the Cabinet on January 29.”

Zeebiz had earlier done a report speculating rise in fitment factor by three times pushing minimum pay to Rs 21,000 from the current Rs 18,000.

Salary and pension for all central government employees is also expected to increase the official added.

In June this year, the government approved the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for central government employees. This increased minimum pay to Rs 18,000 from earlier Rs 7,000.

However, the central government employees unions were demanding the rise in minimum pay to Rs 26,000 and raising fitment formula to 3.68.

“The minimum pay of central government employees Rs 18,000 was made on recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. But government will consider hiking it after discussions with all stakeholders,” Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley said in a meeting to discuss 7th Pay recommendations on July 26.

7th Pay Commission: Modi Govt Is Anti-Employees, Feel Central Govt Employees

Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: The Central government employees were happy prior to the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) but since the day of its implementation, a huge disappointment has engulfed all. They were to get the fruit of 10 years of hard work but all that they received is a rotten fruit, says a Bhubaneswar-based retired employee of the Indian Railways.

There is news that the Modi government will increase the minimum pay to Rs 21,000 next year. But will it have any impact on the employees’ financial position…? Not at all! They have become a victim of anti-employee policies of the Central government, he added.

The Central government employees have got an average hike of 14.27 per cent in basic pay under the 7th CPC, which they protested and demanded further hike in the minimum pay. The government is also likely to increase the basic pay to Rs 21,000 from the present Rs 18,000, but the employees stand firm on their demand of increasing it to Rs 26,000.

Besides, the employees want arrears on the revised pay. “If the government will increase the minimum pay as per its own convenience and doesn’t even give arrears on it, it can’t be brought into play. Increase the minimum pay to Rs 26,000 and don’t give arrears, if want so,” said a Central Income Tax employee.

If the Narendra Modi-led BJP government will not consider the demands of the Central government employees, it will affect the party’s prospects in the 2019 general elections. People have now got to know that the saffron party’s words or promises are just like bubbles, says a disappointed senior clerk working at Central Vigilance Department in Odisha.

“NDA government is the worst one for the Central government employees. Common and poor people, including the Indian Armed Forces personnel are worst hit,” said SK Nair Kulengara working with the Indian Navy.

“The employee unions have already conveyed their feelings to the Finance minister Arun Jaitley that the present pay hike under the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission is not enough as it comes after ten years. Hope, the demand to raise it by Rs 8,000 more will be considered by the good office of the minister,” said another employee of the Indian Navy.

Besides, the employees feel that after the 7th pay scale, the pay gap between the highest maximum pay and the lowest minimum pay is 1:14 but it was 1:12 in the 6th CPC and so, it must be reduced.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of monthly remuneration to the contract para-medical staff in Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2004/RC-4/SC/2 dated 19/07/2005.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/57/Part I dated 15/05/2017.

NFIR vide letter No. dated 15/05/2017 has requested the Railway Board to revise the monthly remuneration to contract para-medical staff on Zonal Railways etc., in view of revision of pay structure of regular employees w.e.f. 01/01/2016 pursuant to Government’s decision on 7th CPC report. 'The Federation feels sad to mention that the Railway Board have not yet issued orders revising the monthly remuneration rates to the contract para-medical staff.

The Railway Board may kindly appreciate the fact that in the past when the pay scales of regular employees were revised, the monthly remuneration rates of contract para-medical staff were also revised. On the same analogy, the revision of remuneration of monthly rates to contract para- medical staff is required to be done for the existing contract para-medical staff in the Railways w.e.f. January 2016. They may also be granted privilege pass and medical facility as a special case.

Federation therefore requests to expedite action for upward revision of monthly remuneration of contract medical staff with effect from January, 2016 and also grant privilege pass and medical facilities.

Yours faithfully

Banking Arrangements, D/o Expenditure informed that an on-line salary application system, Employee Information System (EIS) is being developed within PF MS for implementation in all Drawing and Disbursing Offices (DDOS) and Pay Accounts Offices (PAOS) of Central Ministries. EIS is envisaged to be a central repository of details of all salaried employees, and it can also maintain details of GPF of government employees. He fiirther stated that at present, Aadhaar number is not a mandatory field in employee information records, due to which Aadhaar seeding may be low. it was discussed that if the employee data on E13 are linked with Aad’naar, it may serve the purpose of establishing interoperability of salary and GPF accounts across DDOs. It was highlighted that Railways and Defence departments are not covered under £18.

It was informed that every PPF account is associated with a PPF number and a Customer Identification Form (CIF) number, which is a unique number that holds all personal as well as account related information of the customer. ideally, a customer can have one CIF number in one post office. though the customer can have multiple accounts under these numbers.

JS, DBT pointed out that Aadhaar seeding is very low in this case, and the Department may undertake necessary actions to expedite the same to achieve 100% seeding by December 31, 2017. It was further suggested that all PPF accounts and CIF numbers may be linked with Aadhaar and the Department may share its suggestions on establishing a common repository of all PPF accounts using Aadhaar as the identifier.

6. Deputy Director, M/o Labour & Employment stated the Universal Account Number (UAN) provides portability for the employees covered under EPF. It was informed that 14 crore out of 4 crore active subscribers’ records have been seeded with Aadhaar. It was discussed that this will enable portability of EPF accounts when the details of Bank Account, Aadhaar and PAN are seeded in UAN database of the employees and are verified by employer on change of job. It was suggested that Aadhaar seeding of all may be taken up priority.
7. Deputy Secretary, Budget, D/o Economic Affairs stated that a host of small saving schemes including PPF are Operated by post offices, public sector banks and select private secror banks and Aadhaar seeding is being undertaken in all these accounts. JS, DBT Mission enquired if the. Department is taking any initiative to have a centralised platform for all savings schemes, given that all banks use different systems and Operate in silos. It was discussed that the Department may examine the matter and share updates in this regard.

8. After detailed deliberations, the following were agreed upon.

i. All stakeholder Departments to ensure 100% Aadhaar seeding of GPF, PPF and EPF accounts by December 31, 2017.

ii. All Departments to examine the possibility of developing common platforms for their respective service subscribers/employees/account holders using Aadhaar as the unique identifier to ensure portability across the financial system.

In this regard, illustrations of calculation have been given at Annexure-I of the MoD letter dated 05.09.2017.
In cases where pension/ family pension being paid w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in accordance with GoI MoD letter No. 17(01)/2016-D(Pen/Pol) dated 29th October 2016 happens to be more than pension/ family pension as worked out in accordance with Para-5 above, the pension/ family pension already being paid shall be treated as revised pension/ family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

The amount so arrived at in terms of Para 6 above will be regarded as revised pension/ family pension with effect from 01.01.2016. Since the revised pension will be inclusive of commuted portion of pension, if any, the amount of pension commuted will be deducted from the said amount while making monthly disbursements from 01.01.2016.
Instructions were issued vide GoI, MoD letter No. 1(3)/98/D(Pen/Services) dated 27.5.1998 for revision of pension/ family pension in respect of Commissioned Officers who retired or died prior to 1.1.1986, by notional fixation of their pay in the scale of pay introduced with effect from 1.1.1986.

The notional pension/ family pension so arrived at was further revised with effect from 1.1.1996 and was paid in accordance with the instructions issued for revision of pension/ family pension in implementation of the recommendations of the 5th CPC. However, in the case of Pre-1.1.1986 retired JCOs/ORs, no such notional fixation of pay was prescribed and revision of their pension was based on pension tables provided vide GoI, MoD letter No. 1(2)/98/D(Pen/Services) dated 14.7.1998.

Accordingly, for the purpose of calculation of notional pay as on 01.01.2016, in case of all Pre-01.01.2016 JCOs/ ORs who retired or died before 01.01.2016, the actual pay and the pay scale from which they retired or died would be taken into consideration for the purpose of calculation of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 in accordance with Para-3 above. Their notional pay in various subsequent Pay Commissions from date of retirement/discharge/ death will be done by the ROs (Record Offices) concerned and verified by respective PAOs. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the formula for revision of pay according to the Govt. orders on the subject issued from time to time.

Upper ceiling of pension/ family pension

The minimum pension with effect from 01.01.2016 will be Rs 9000/- per month (excluding the element on additional pension to old pensioners). The upper ceiling on pension/ family pension will be 50% and 30% respectively of the highest pay in the Government. (The highest pay in the Government is Rs. 2,50,000/- w.e.f. 01.01.2016). Further, this maximum ceiling limit will not apply in case of casualty pensionary awards like Special Family Pension, Liberalised Family Pension, Disability Pension, Liberalised Disability Pension and War Injury Pension etc. which may be more than Rs. 1,25,000/-.

The pension/ family pension as worked out in accordance with provisions of Para 6 above shall be treated as Basic Pension with effect from 01.01.2016. The revised pension/ family pension includes Dearness relief sanctioned from 01.01.2016 and shall qualify for grant of Dearness Relief sanctioned thereafter.
