State Govts Gear Up For Seventh Pay Commission Implementations

New Delhi: The state governments are gearing up for implementations of the seventh pay commission report, while the central government has in-principle accepted the proposal of the seventh pay commission, it has come as a boost for the states government employees .

The state governments have also started preparing for its implementation.
Senior officials in the most of states finance department believe that the acceptance of the seventh pay commission recommendations of more than 23% hike in the salary of state governments employees will not only pinch the tax payers of the states but will also upset the states already stressed finances.

A senior official of the Uttar Pradesh government said the government will make special provision for increasing salary of state government employees in accordance with the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission in the budget estimates 2017-18 .

“The fund of Seventh Central Pay Commission will be provided from the Union Budget of the next financial year, 2016-17 for salary hike of central government employees and pensioners.

So, the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission for central government employees will be implement in next year after fund allocation in Union budget 2016-17.

After implementation its in central level, the seventh pay commission recommendations would also impact all states government employees like us after some modifications. It will also take about one year, hence the fund in this respect will be allocated from the state budget of financial year 2017-18,” he said

“In a sop to Uttar Pradesh state government employees ahead of the Assembly elections 2017, the Samajwadi government led Akhilesh Yadav may announce to constitute the state Pay Commission to hike salary and pension for state government employees and pensioners, which will be implemented from January 1, 2016,” he added.

The 900-page report of the 7th central Pay Commission headed by Justice A K Mathur was presented to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on November 19 with a recommendation that the new scales be implemented from January 1 next year.

The panel recommended a 14.27 per cent increase in basic pay, the lowest in 70 years. The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.

The 23.55 per cent increase includes hike in allowances.

For the Secretaries it has been fixed at Rs 2.25 lakh as against Rs 80,000 currently.

7th Pay Commission on pension, pay and much else


7th Pay Commission on pension, pay and much else: All you wanted to know about the top 4 disagreements between panel members

7th Pay Commission on pension, pay, allowancesand more has made many far reaching recommendations that will go a long way in making government servants some of the best paid employees in India. While the pay hike on an average is 23.55 per cent, government, last time round, had hiked the amount in excess of what the pay panel had asked for. Whether that will happen this time is still anyone’s guess. Justice A K Mathur was the Chairman of the Seventh Pay Commission. While there was mostly unanimity in the 7th Pay Commission, there were many disagreements too that split the panel straight down the middle. Here is all you wanted to know in 4 short points:

1. 7th Pay Commission – The Edge: An edge (read: superiority in service) is presently accorded to the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and the Indian Foreign Service (IFS) at three promotion stages from Senior Time Scale (STS), to the Junior Administrative Grade (JAG) and the NFSG. is recommended by the Chairman, to be extended to the Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS).
Vivek Rae, Member is of the view that financial edge is justified only for the IAS and IFS. Dr. Rathin Roy, Member is of the view that the financial edge accorded to the IAS and IFS should be removed.
2. 7th Pay Commission – Empanelment: The Chairman and Dr. Rathin Roy, Member, recommend that All India Service officers and Central Services Group A officers who have completed 17 years of service should be eligible for empanelment under the Central Staffing Scheme and there should not be “two year edge”, vis-a-vis the IAS. Vivek Rae, Member, has not agreed with this view and has recommended review of the Central Staffing Scheme guidelines.

3. 7th Pay Commission – Non Functional Upgradation for Organised Group ‘A’ Services: The Chairman is of the view that NFU availed by all the organised Group ‘A’ Services should be allowed to continue and be extended to all officers in the CAPFs, Indian Coast Guard and the Defence forces. NFU should henceforth be based on the respective residency periods in the preceding substantive grade. Vivek Rae, Member and Dr. Rathin Roy, Member, have favoured abolition of NFU at SAG and HAG level.

4. 7th Pay Commission – Superannuation: Chairman and Dr. Rathin Roy, Member, recommend the age of superannuation for all CAPF personnel should be 60 years uniformly. Vivek Rae, Member, has not agreed with this recommendation and has endorsed the stand of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Abolishing 12 Interest free advances including LTC Advance recommended by 7th CPC

The 7th Pay Commission has , in a casual manner, recommended that all interest free advances to be abolished. The impact of this recommendation is yet un noticed by the central government employees
There are 12 Interest free advances are listed in that table provided in the 7th CPC Report. When hearing the news that 7th cpc has recommended to abolish interest free advances , every body thought that some advances like festival advances only will be abolished. But if you read the names of advances recommended for abolishment, it will give you little bit shock.

In general opinion, the amount that is paid for government servants in some occasions and for specific purposes and the same will be recovered through monthly instalments are considered advances.

But the advance paid for Medical treatment and LTC are not supposed to be included this list, since it is reimbursable in nature and will not be recovered by Government.

The amount paid as advances to the Medical treatment and LTC are not recoverable by government if there is no any default in the claim. since the expenses incurred should be reimbursed to the Govt servants according to their entitlements, the amount paid in advance can be adjusted against the claim of reimbursement is sanctioned. So there is no need of repaying the advance to government in respect of Medical and LTC advances.These should not be included in the list of interest free advances.
Eventually abolishing these advances will make the central government employees not to avail LTC facility and medical treatment in Private hospital, since the amount of 90 % of the expenses paid in advance will not be available for them any more due to this recommendation. By availing this advances they were able to manage the Medical Expenses and by availing this advance only they were able to bye Air or Train Tickets to go on LTC.

Without these advances, the Group C and B employees cannot imagine availing of LTC to visit some places in India with their family.

The Central Government should not accept the proposal of Abolishing these advances.

7th CPC Recommended Sports Related Allowance

7th CPC Recommended Sports Related Allowance

Allowances Covered

8.12.1 Alphabetical list of Allowances covered here is as under:

1. Out of Pocket Allowance
2. Refreshment Allowance

Out of Pocket Allowance

8.12.2 This allowance is paid to players and coaches of Indian Railways who participate in sports events abroad, in lieu of Daily Allowance on Foreign Travel, to take care of subsidiary expenses, at the rate of $35 per day. There is a demand to replace this allowance with Daily Allowance on Foreign Travel.
Analysis and Recommendations
8.12.3 The demand has merit. Accordingly it is recommended that Out of Pocket Allowance should be abolished and players and coaches participating in sports events abroad should be paid Daily Allowance on Foreign Travel.
Refreshment Allowance
8.12.4 This allowance is paid to players, coaches, technical officials and Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB) observers during National and Indian Railways’ camps and Championships, to support additional food requirements, at a uniform rate of Rs.240 per day. There are demands for three fold raise in the amount of this allowance.
Analysis and Recommendations
8.12.5 While Refreshment allowance is understandable for players/coaches/technical officials, it is not justified for observers of Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB). Therefore, since the allowance is not indexed to DA, it is recommended that Refreshment Allowance should be increased by a factor of 2.25 to Rs.540 per day. The amount will rise further by 25 percent each time DA crosses 50 percent. However, the allowance will be paid only to players, coaches and technical officials

Govt official held for making fake postal stamps worth Rs 10 lakh

— By FPJ Bureau | Nov 26, 2015 01:57 am 
Mumbai : The Vile Parle Police on Wednesday arrested a clerk working at Santacruz post office located in Terminal 1B of Domestic airport on charges of making fake postal stamps worth Rs 10 lakh. The accused, Vinayak Laxmanrao Chole (34), is a resident of Virar.

The police on Tuesday got information from a person working at Krushna Xerox and Stationary shop in Vile Parle that the accused had asked for colour Xerox of 1,000 copies of a postal stamp sheet with 40 stamps costing Rs 25 each. Soon after, senior inspector Raksha Maharao and Crime branch inspector Mahadev Nimbalkar started investigating the matter and caught the accused. Nimbalkar interrogated Chole and arrested him after he confessed to the crime.

“While getting the 1,000 copies made, Chole asked the Xerox counter to put the triangular design which the postal stamp has on all four borders. This aroused the suspicion of the man working there,” said Sandesh Shinde from Vile Parle police station.

“TThe family came to the police station requesting us to let off Chole as he is a government official. But the accused is still in police custody. We will produce him in local court on Thursday,” said Nimbalkar.
