Withholding Annual Increments of Non-performers after 20 Years : There is a widespread perception that increments as well as upward movement in the hierarchy happen as a matter of course. The perception is that grant of MACP, although subject to the employee attaining the laid down threshold of performance, is taken for granted. This Commission believes that employees who do not meet the laid down performance criterion should not be allowed to earn future annual increments. The Commission is therefore proposing withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.

This will act as a deterrent for complacent and inefficient employees. However, since this is not a penalty, the norms for penal action in disciplinary cases involving withholding increments will not be applicable in such cases. This will be treated as an “efficiency bar”. Additionally, for such employees there could be an option to leave service on similar terms and conditions as prescribed for voluntary retirement.
Grant of First Annual Increment in Recruits Pay : The main demand of the Services in this connection is that the existing stipulation that next increment will be granted from the date of attestation or mustering be done away with. They have pointed out that trades whose skill requirements are low and whose entry level qualifications are lower invariably get attested or mustered earlier and thus are entitled to the next annual increment earlier than trades whose training period is longer.
Analysis and Recommendations : The Commission is of the view that grant of next increment in the case of recruits should not place those with higher entry level qualifications at a disadvantage. The Commission, accordingly recommends that the date of enrolment should be reckoned for the purposes of first increment for all recruits who are finally successfully attested/mustered.

Non-transmission of COD Delivery amount to ePayment Server

Reasons for non-transmission of COD Delivery amount from Delivery Post Office to ePayment Server

1) Submit Account not done in Postman module:

In Postman module, the Supervisor has to perform Submit Account for each Postman beat. This process will cross check as to whether the amount of all COD articles delivered by that beat postman has been credited to the Treasurer or not. COD delivered data in r/o the beats for which submit account has been done, will be transmitted to ePayment server for further transmission to Payment office. It is further to state that Postman module will not allow to perform day end without completing the Submit Account of all the beats. 
Solution:The case has to be reported to CEPT for providing suitable solution. 

2) BO Verification not done in Postman module:

In Postman module, Supervisor has to perform verification of the amount in r/o all the COD articles delivered by the Branch Post Offices attached to the HO/SO. This is similar to the Submit Account for the local delivered articles. The BO Verification process will cross check as to whether the amount of all COD articles delivered by each Branch Post Office has been credited to the Accounts w.r.t. the SO Summary in Sub Accounts module. COD delivered data in r/o the Branch Post offices for which verification has been done, will be transmitted to ePayment server for further transmission to Payment office. It is further to state that Postman module will not allow to perform day end, if BO Verification is pending against any particular Branch Post Office. 
Solution:BO Verification can be done at any later date also by the Postman Supervisor, by selecting the concerned Account Date i.e., BO Summary Date. 

3) Office became inactive in ePayment:

The delivery office might have become inactive in ePayment server. This may be due to the change of the ePayment communication machine by the Post Office, for one reason or the other. The ePayment server will take the data being communicated by the registered communication machine only. If the earlier registered ePayment communication machine is changed by the Post Office, then the COD articles delivered by that Post Offices will not be taken as authenticated by the ePayment Server. 
Solution:The Divisional System Administrator has to re-register the office in ePayment website using the same machine which has transmitted the COD data. Then the ePayment server will re-process the data earlier received by it again.

Assessment of 7th Pay Commission report by INDWF

ASSESSMENT OF INDWF OF THE RECOMMENDATION OF 7TH CPC

Minimum Pay : Though the Commission claims to have adopted Dr. Aykroyd formula in calculating minimum wages, the rates of commodities based on which the recommendations of the commission is made is significantly deviating from the rates mentioned in the National Council of JCM proposal. The JCM proposal in this regard should be reiterated. A comparison between existing and proposed VII CPC minimum pay is given below. The retrograde nature of the commission’s recommendations in this regard can by understood by this table.


From the above picture, it is clear that the VII CPC recommendations are not giving fair wages and the total payincrease is meager for next 10 years. Therefore, the minimum pay needs to be increased accepting the proposal of National Council JCM.

NEW PAY STRUCTURE : The present system of pay bands and grade pay has been dispensed With and a matrix has been recommended. The New system is an extension of system Of Pay Scales, albeit, with a progressive Increment of 3% instead of fixed Increments. Unlike VI CPC, Minimum pay fixed on promotion is at par with the initial pay fixed direct recruits in the same grade. However, the fixation benefits on promotion, particularly from Level 2 to 3, 3 to 4 & Level 4 to 5 is significantly less compared to VI CPC Structure. National Council JCM demand of fixation benefit of two increments Should be reiterated or at least 5% should be ensured. A comparison of the promotion benefit for the after 10 years of service in their respective grades is given below.

Fitment : The fitment of the pay in the new pay structure is recommended at 2.57 times of the Basic Pay drawn, which has been arrived based on the Minimum Pay of VI CPC and the proposed Minimum Pay by VII CPC. The NC JCM proposal of Minimum Pay and Fitment ratio should be reiterated.

Annual Increment : The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3 percent. The Demand of 5% sholuld be reiterated. Further, it is seen in the Pay Matrix recommended by the commission the increment is below 3% in certain stages. It appears that the commission has rounded the value to the nearest 100. It is demanded that at least 5% increment can be ensured.

Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) : The continual of upgradations in 10, 20 and 30 years is disappointing and improvement as demanded by NC JCM shluld be reiterated. The demand of granting MACP upgradations in the promotion hierarchy has been recommended. Implementation of the same is to be ensured. The retrograde recommendations of enhancing the benchmark for MACP has been ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ and withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service is to be withdrawn totally.

Cadre Review : The commission has recommended a new system, supposedly to hasten the process of cadre reviews and reduce the time taken in inter-ministerial consultations. It may be demanded that as soon as the concerned department finalises a proposal in consultation with representative members from the DoP&T and the Dept. of Expenditure, a provisional recruitment rule may be published with the assent of the President of India (excluding any increase or decrease in the total number of posts in the cadre) such that the provisional Rule satisfies statutory requirements. Therefore, the concerned departments or the cadre review committee may assess the proposal in detail and initiate proceedings for a permanent recruitment rule.

Distinctive features of Pay Matrix : 7th Pay Commission

7th Pay Commission has introduced a new pay fixation table named as “Pay Matrix” for all categories of employees and officers working in Central Government services. Earlier, the 6th CPC had introduced new “Grade Pay & Running Pay Band” system. The 7th CPC is expected to accrue by migrating the new Matrix system. The benefits and special features are listed about the new system as follows…


1. The issues raised by various stakeholders in respect of the existing pay structure have been addressed by subsuming of grade pay and pay bands into one composite level.

2. The correction of variable spacing between adjacent grade pay and pay bands by way of rationalisation has been effected. The disparity between PB-3 and PB-4 has been set justify by the process of normalisation. This will also help address the demands for upgradation of grade pay received in the Commission solely on grounds of disparity between various pay bands.

3. The fixation of revised pay has been greatly simplified in the new pay matrix and will not involve further calculations. The basic pay being drawn by any person on the date of implementation is to be multiplied by a factor of 2.57 and the figure so obtained will be matched for the closest figure in the level pertaining to his/her existing grade pay and fixed there.

4. The issue of differential entry pay has been resolved.

5. The employee can traverse both vertically within a level in the new pay matrix by way of annual progression, and horizontally across levels by way of MACP as well as on regular promotion. This will enable him/her to visualise the career path across levels and span of service.

6. The new matrix will provide greater visibility and transparency with respect to actual pay drawn as compared to the earlier system of pay scales or pay bands. It will also depict the exact amount payable to a person in relation to number of years spent in service in each level.

7. The new pay matrix is expected to be easy to administer.

8. In line with the principle of greater transparency, the new pay matrix will provide an unambiguous and complete view of the pay system in the Government of India.

9. The pay matrix can be gainfully analysed to provide crucial data on trends in pay progression, number of personnel populating each level, number of personnel entering and retiring at various levels, promotional trends of various cadres, financial outgo at various levels, and so on. Hence, it can act as a powerful tool to bring in financial management reforms.

Similar pay matrices have been designed for the personnel of defence forces and the MNS so as to ensure uniformity in pay structures.


Minimum Government and Maximum Governance

A citizen friendly and accountable administration is the focus of the government. A series of steps to achieve this goal have been initiated. These include simplification of procedures, identification and repeal of obsolete/archaic laws/rules, identification and shortening of various forms, leveraging technology to bring in transparency in public interface and a robust public grievance redress system.

Doing away with the practice of submitting Affidavits for small level executive jobs in the Government and allowing Self-Certification of certificates is one important step in this regard. This has greatly led to the reduction in time and effort on the part of both the citizen as well as the officials in many Government offices.

Leveraging the power of information technology brings with it the advantage of transparency and speed for the benefit of the citizens. In this regard the Government has embarked upon a time bound Digital India Plan. The details of this plan are available on the Website of the Department of Electronics & Information Technology (www.deity.nic.in). As a part of Digital India Plan, the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances has been made the nodal ministry for implementation of e-Office in Central Ministries/Departments. The Department is regularly monitoring implementation of the e-Office project. The Ministry of Panchayati Raj has moved into 100% e-Office platform.

The Central Secretariat Manual of Office (CSMOP) has been revised and the 14th Edition of the CSMOP was brought in the form of e-Book form on 22nd May, 2015, which is available on the website www.darpg.nic.in. This is a much reduced and simplified version of the manual in comparison to the earlier editions. A number of redundant and repetitive literatures and words have been removed.

The Government of India has also taken a number of initiatives for improving ‘Ease of Doing Business’. The emphasis has been on simplification and rationalization of the existing rules and introduction of information technology to make governance more efficient and effective. 

One of the focus areas of Government is to reduce the decision making layers to the minimum while allowing for faster means of information sharing/dissemination. The Government has launched a websitemygov@nic.in and india.gov.in for this purpose. This is a citizen centric platform to empower people to connect with the Government and contribute towards good governance. Suggestions are also received on the PMO website. It also seeks expert advice from the people, thoughts and ideas on various topics that concern India. Citizens can join the discussion to share, debate and add value.

This was stated by Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Dr. Jitendra Singh in Lok Sabha today in a written reply to a question by Shri Nalin Kumar Kateel, Shri B.N. Chandrappa, Shri D.K. Suresh and Shri R.K. Bharati Mohan.

Change in Recruitment Policy

The Central Government has decided to dispense with interview for all Group ‘C’ and non-gazetted posts of Group ‘B’ category in Central Government.

Staff Selection Commission and Central Ministries/Departments have been instructed on October 5, 2015 and October 9, 2015 to implement these decisions.

If a Department considers interview absolutely necessary for any specific posts, then clearance of Department of Personnel & Training is necessary.

DoP&T will monitor the progress in this regard.

This would promote merit based selection and enhance transparency and objectivity in the selection process.
