7th Pay Commission: Delay in allowances costing govt employees loss of Rs 33,00 per month

The non-implementation of the revised allowances under the 7th Pay Commission has resulted in a Rs 33,000 loss for central government employees every month. This loss can be covered only once the Narendra Modi government announces a 122 per cent hike in HRA for them. 
The E-CoS is set to table its report on June 1 before the Union Cabinet. The Cabinet will then have to take a final call on the HRA and allowances. Reports suggest that the PM is in favour of the employees getting higher allowances. If this is approved then a ten month long wait will come to an end. 
The loss has been huge for the central government employees.

Central government employees pay hike: Staff body to wait for update on 7th Pay Commission recommendations

The National Council (Staff Side) Joint Consultative Machinery (NCJCM) will wait for the Union Cabinet to approve the recommendations of Committee on Allowances under Ashok Lavasa before making any move. Further strategies will be devised depending on whether their demands on allowances are met or not.

The central government employees' body convened for a meeting today to discuss the delay in finalising Lavasa Committee recommendations regarding allowance reforms under the 7th Central Pay Commission.

Considering this, it is advised that RPFCs-incharge of ROs should contact all such Housing Board/authorities in their jurisdiction and persuade them for allotment of such unsold houses directly to the PF Workers’ Cooperative Societies but EPFO shall not recommend or be associated in the agreement with any particular housing agency/housing society. RPFCs should also discuss the issue with PF Workers’ Union and employers of establishments for formation of cooperative societies so that the concerned society may also negotiate with such Housing Board/ authorities.

7th CPC Bunching of stages in the revised pay structure – Dopt Orders with Illustration for AIS Officers

No.20011/1/2016-AIS-II
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension
Department of Personnel & Training

New Delhi, dated the 25th May, 2017

To
(i) The Chief Secretaries of all States/UTs
(ii) The Joint Secretaries (Admn.) of all Ministries/Departments.

Subject: Recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission- bunching of stages in the revised pay structure-reg.

Sir,

I am directed to say that after revision of pay scales w.e.f 01.01.2016, the pay of a member of Service drawing pay at two or more stages in pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale and gets fixed at same Cell in the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix, one additional increment shall be given for every two stages bunched and the pay of member of Service drawing higher pay in pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level as per the Proviso (a) to Rule 4 (A) of the IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016

2. However, this Department has been receiving queries from various Ministries/Departments/State Governments for fixation of pay in respect of members of Service whose pay gets fixed at the same Cell,in the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix. The matter was clarified vide OM No.13021/1/2016-AIS-I (Pt.2) dated the 10th October, 2016 (copy enclosed). It is once again clarified that as per Rule 4 (A)(ii) of IAS (Pay) Rule, 2016, in cases of fixation of pay of IAS officers drawing pay at two or more stages in the pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay gets fixed at the same Cell in the applicable Level of the Pay Matrix, one additional increment may be given for every two stages bunched so that the pay of the member of Service drawing higher pay in the pre-revised structure is fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level.

Illustration:
If two members of Service drawing pay of Rs.53000 and Rs.54590 in the GP 10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix, the member of Service drawing pay of Rs.53000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs.1,36,210 and the member of Service drawing pay of Rs.54590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs. 1,40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of level 14 in the pay of Rs. 1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the member of Services drawing pay of Rs.54590 will get fixed second cell of level 14 in the pay of Rs.1,48,500.

2. This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,

BOTTLENECKS IN THE COMMENCEMENT OF SALARY REVISION NEGOTIATIONS IN BANKING INDUSTRY

We are sorry to bring to your kind notice that even though the Government of India has been insisting for an early salary revision settlement at the industry level between the Indian Banks Association and the United forum of Bank Unions, there has been an unnecessary delay due to certain avoidable difficulties created by the Management of few banks in the Banking industry. It is historical that the salary revision in the Banking industry takes place once in 5 years through bilateral negotiations between the associations/unions and the Indian Banks Association covering over 10 lac workforce in the entire banking industry. During the last five decades we have concluded 10 bipartite settlements and the 11th one is now expected to take off. The first round of meeting was held between the IBA and the constituents of the United Forum of Bank unions on 2nd May, 2017 but without any concrete progress. One of the major hurdles that we are now encountering is in respect of the ‘mandate’ to be given by the member banks to the Indian Banks’ Association. A few of the banks have given a conditional mandate creating a chaotic and confusing situation in the negotiations, by insisting that they are allowing mandate for discussions only upto officers of scale III and that the remaining scales will have to be left to the discretion of the Bank.

Sub: Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – Clarification reg.

Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2016/MACPS/1 dated 19.05.2017

This issue has been discussed with you on several occasions individually as well as jointly, where I mentioned that, the Cabinet Secretary has agreed to us that, the Railways being working under different working conditions, and for operation of the trains, a flow process system is in vogue, that is the reason, in the selections for various posts and categories; benchmarking system had been introduced after VI CPC when DoP&T issued instructions that, financial upgradation under MACPS should be based on “Very Good” benchmark. Even DoP&T agreed that the same benchmark should be used for MACPS which is in vogue for selection in case of the Railway employees.
