Connectivity problems at post offices let citizens down

Panaji: Customers at post offices across the state have been facing technical difficulties with regards to transactions after issues relating to the server and connectivity hit the system. With the problem persisting for over two weeks, citizens are queueing up at their respective post offices hours prior to the office's opening.

Officials at the Goa circle of the department said that this problem prevailed following the department's migration to the core banking solution (CBS) system this year. As a result, other circles of the department in various states, have also been severely hit.

The India Post has a network-based system which is linked to a central server. Transactions made throughout the country are linked to this. Owing to the massive transactions due to the financial year-end, the bandwidth suffered heavy stress resulting in the crash of the server and the links to it, an official said.

The LAN connectivity gets delinked for long periods, leaving employees helpless while logging on to the central server. Dealing with the present scenario has become a Herculean task for the staff.
Many customers, most of whom are senior citizens, told TOI that several attempts at transactions have proved futile leaving them frustrated and cynical about India Post's abilities to tackle the issue.
"People begin to queue up at the office as early as 4.30 am even though the post-office at Aldona opens at 8.30am. This is because after the first few transactions, the system crashes forcing residents to line up way ahead of time," informed Nirmala Fernandes, a resident of Aldona.

She further added that when locals argue, the staff keep assuring that the system is buffering but even after hours of waiting the transaction is incomplete.

"The connectivity kept going off making withdrawals, new accounts and various other transactions difficult. So much so that even plain updating of the book was not possible," said Aileen Monteiro.
As of Saturday, there has been some improvement in the connectivity of the internet however Celia D'souza, who is also an agent with clients mainly from Bardez said that other problems gradually cropped up.

Though the connectivity has slightly improved, citizens still have to go queue up early morning because the connection is unpredictable and relapses. Also, since Saturday, the postal department has also stopped Kisan Vikas Patra and National Informatics Center claiming issues with the higher ups.
"Moreover, they accept only 3 transactions per person but as an agent I have many more transactions," she added.

Besides this, sexagenarian Subhash Narvekar informed that the token system has been discontinued at the Panaji post office forcing many others like him to stand in long unending queues. "Last time I waited for over an hour since the server was down. But there are others who have returned for the third and fourth time, yet their work is undone," he said.

Col. Premnath Chowdhary who is a PPF account holder at the post department lamented that the multi-purpose windows do not cater to all the services and only four of the six windows are operational.

Asked about this issue, an official told TOI that since the department is understaffed only few of the windows are currently operational. "We didn't foresee so many transactions after migrating to CBS. We'll try to close all loopholes and satisfy our customers," they assured.
Officials further informed that other sections are hurt because they have been borrowing staff from other sections within the office to lend a hand to manage the CBS workload. The department is however doing their best with available resources but peripheral issues will persist until the issue is resolved at the central level.
"Our central team in Delhi is looking into the matter and the server and connectivity issue shall hopefully be resolved in 10 to 15 days," said assistant director, postal services, SD Madhabhave.

7th Central Pay Commission and the Arrears

7th Central Pay Commission and the Arrears

“In the past, since the Pay Commission recommendations were enforced with years of retrospective effect, the government had refused to release the arrears for allowances”

The Pay Commission for Central Government employees is constituted once every ten years to revise their pay and allowances. The previous Pay Commission was implemented in the year 2006. The most recent one, the 7th Pay Commission, had submitted to the Central Government its report in 2015. The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are expected to come into effect from June or July this year. They are also very likely to have a retrospective effect from January 1, 2016 onwards.

In the event that it comes into effect from January 1, many are convinced that the government is very likely to not release the arrears for House Rent and Transport allowances, this time also. But, some of our readers vehemently oppose this stand.

The recommendations of 6th Pay Commission was implemented and the revised salaries were given only with effect from 01.01.2006. But the allowances are given only after 1.9.2008. It was originally meant to be implemented on January 1, 2006 including all allowances. The allowances, particularly HRA and TA were calculated from September 1, 2008 onwards. The government refused to give the 32-months arrears on HRA and Transport allowance.

This time, the slogan was “Pay Commission without arrears.” Despite it all, four months have passed. The government servants are not responsible for the delay, but they say that the government must pay the arrears on HRA and travel allowance this time from the implemented date.

This is why, in our 7th CPC Arrears Calculator, we have mentioned as two stages that the total approximate arrears and actual arrears.

Similarly, the readers have expressed their opinions about the various deductions, including CGEGIS, GPF, and NPS.

Some say that the arrear amount has to be calculated only after deducting the subscriptions of CGEGIS. And also, the arrear calculations must be made after deducting like Minimum GPF contributions and, the subscription of New Pension Scheme. We would like to state that we are making efforts to incorporate all these views. We would also like to thank our readers for giving us such wonderful and thought-provoking feedback.

The intention behind designing a calculator to find out the salaries, pensions and allowances of the Central Government employees, the serving members of the armed forces and the pensioners, is to give the readers a simple and as-accurate-as-possible method of calculation.

Guidelines of the Hon'ble Supreme Court on usage of Aadhaar by Central / State Governments

Know why Modi govt is delaying implementation of 'salary increment' recommended by 7th CPC ?

  • Central Government employees must be wondering why Centre is taking so much time to implement Seventh Pay Commission recommendations.
  • It's already four months since Pay Commission had submitted its report to Finance Ministry to give final touch to it.
  • Though, Modi Government recently dropped enough hint that it will implement increment process soon, but no particular time frame was given to the Central staff.
  • Here are the possible reasons why Government is taking time to implement the hike.
  • Government needs to arrange fund
  • As Rs 1.02 lakh crore is needed to implement whole increment process, Centre needs to have proper strategy for the same.
  • At a time when OROP's expenditures is already taking toll on the exchequer, pay Commission will put extra burden on the government budget.
  • Grievances of various stakeholders
  • Government needs to address grievances of various stakeholders including government staff and Army men before taking final call on the same.
  • While Babus are unhappy with minimum basic pay, Defence personnels say that they shouln't be treated at par with their civilian counterparts in terms of salary and allowances.
  • Assembly elections
  • As model code of conduct is in place, Government doesn't want to take risk by announcing implementation date. Centre doesn't want to displease voters at a time when poll process is going on in many crucial states. It is being believed that notification for the 'increment proposal' will be issued once State election will be over.

Procedural delay

Pay Commission will be implemented after cabinet will give it a final approval. Currently, the Implementation cell of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries is trying to address various issues with it. After giving final touch to the report, Empowered Committee will send recommendations to PMO for its nod. Once PMO will through the report, it will be placed before the Cabinet.

Biggest news of 2016 for Central Government pensioners and its effect on Ex-servicemen OROP

Biggest news of 2016 for Central Government pensioners 

Most readers would be aware that the orders regarding calculation of pension of pre-2006 retirees based on minimum of pay within the pay band for each separate grade/rank and not on minimum of the pay band itself, with arrears from 01-01-2006 rather than 24-09-2012, were issued for Central Government pensioners in July 2015 by the Government as per the decision of the Delhi High Court, which essentially followed a decision of the Punjab & Haryana High Court, and then upheld by the Supreme Court. The High Court had held that the anomaly (though later removed by the Government itself from 24-09-2012) had to be removed from the date of the inception of the anomaly, that is, 01-01-2006. Similar orders were later issued by the Ministry of Defence. 

On a similar analogy, many decisions by various Benches of the Central Administrative Tribunal (and then upheld by the High Courts) were rendered de-linking the service requirement of 33 years for grant of full pension for pre-2006 retirees at par with post-2006 retirees for whom there is no such requirement. Some Special Leave Petitions preferred by the Government against such orders were also dismissed, though not by way of detailed decisions. The Punjab Haryana High Court had also passed a detailed verdict on the same subject for pensioners of the Central Armed Police Forces. Till date, the pensions of pre-2006 pensioners with less than 33 years of service (including weightage) were being calculated by way of proportionate reduction. 

Through this earlier post dated 22-01-2016, in view of multiple queries in this regard, I had informed by way of general information that the matter of issuance of orders on this subject for similarly placed retirees was being examined by the Department of Pensions & Pensioners’ Welfare, Ministry of Law & Justice and Ministry of Finance. 

The Department of Pensions and Pensioners’ Welfare has now issued universal orders giving effect to the judicial decisions of the High Courts and has removed the requirement of 33 years service for full pension. Now, irrespective of length of service, all pre-2006 pensioners shall be eligible for full pension as is admissible to those pre-2006 pensioners who had rendered 33 years or more service including weightage. Full arrears are also admissible with effect from 01-01-2006. The biggest gainers would be voluntary retirees and those released from service on medical grounds or before completing full service. The orders can be downloaded by clicking here. Similar orders should now be issued for defence pensioners also by the Ministry of Defence. 

A word of caution- This change would not affect the concept of One Rank One Pension (OROP) applicable with effect from 2014 since while this development is based on 50% of minimum emoluments introduced by the 6th Central Pay Commission for each grade, the concept of OROP is based on live data of actual pension based on real time emoluments as per length of service of in-service personnel. Readers are hence requested not to mix up the two dispensations which operate by way of separate dynamics. 

We must again place on record extreme gratitude to the Department of Pensions and Pensioners’ Welfare functioning under Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions which has once again taken a stand for all Central Government pensioners and ensured issuance of universal directions just on simple dismissal of a Special Leave Petition by the Supreme Court even without a detailed order. One cannot also help but compare this with the attitude of the Ministry of Defence which continues to file appeals against its pensioners and disabled pensioners based on artificial distinctions even when the law has been fully settled by the Supreme Court in a plethora of detailed landmark decisions and which also militates against the grain of the opinion expressed by the highest of political executive, including the Prime Minister. I however maintain and retain full hope that the current Raksha Mantri would be able to rein in the unruly horses. 

Jai Hind.

सातवें वेतन आयोग से बढ़ी सैलरी का आधा हिस्सा बॉन्ड में जाएगा!

सरकार एक अलग किस्म के प्रस्ताव पर विचार कर रही है, जिसके तहत सातवें वेतन आयोग की सिफारिशों के अनुसार होने वाली वेतन बढ़ोतरी का 50 फीसदी हिस्सा पहले दो वर्षों में अनिवार्य रूप से बैंक कैपिटलाइजेशन बॉन्ड्स में निवेश करना होगा। ऐसा केवल ज्यादा इनकम वाले सरकारी कर्मचारियों के मामले में किया जाएगा। बॉन्ड की रकम का इस्तेमाल बैंकों को पूंजी मुहैया कराने में होगा और इस तरह सरकारी खजाने पर इस मद में अतिरिक्त बोझ नहीं आएगा। 

ऐसा होने पर ऊंची इनकम वाले कर्मचारियों के हाथ में कम कैश आएगा, लेकिन इन बॉन्ड्स में निवेश पर उन्हें इनकम टैक्स छूट मिलेगी। जो लोग टैक्स बचाने के लिए वेतन बढ़ोतरी का 50 पर्सेंट से ज्यादा हिस्सा निवेश करना चाहेंगे, उन्हें ऐसा करने दिया जाएगा। इस प्रस्ताव के मुताबिक, कम सैलरी वाले कर्मचारियों यानी 5,200 से लेकर 20,200 रुपये के ब्रैकेट में आने वालों और पेंशनभोगियों को यह छूट होगी कि वे चाहें तो इस 'बैंक रीकैपिटलाइजेशन स्कीम' में निवेश करें और न चाहें तो न करें। फाइनैंस मिनिस्ट्री के एक अधिकारी ने इस बात की पुष्टि की है कि इस प्रस्ताव पर गुरुवार को एक मीटिंग में शुरुआती चर्चा की गई। उन्होंने कहा, 'हम सभी विकल्पों पर गौर कर रहे हैं।' 

अधिकारी ने बताया, 'प्रस्ताव में कहा गया है कि इनकम टैक्स ऐक्ट के एक प्रावधान के तहत 2016-17 और 2017-18 में वेतन आयोग के जरिए एक्स्ट्रा सैलरी इनकम पाने वाले सभी कर्मचारियों को टैक्स छूट मिलनी चाहिए, बशर्ते जिस रकम पर छूट मिले, उसे बैंक रीकैपिटलाइजेशन स्कीम में निवेश किया जाए।' 

सातवें वेतन आयोग को 1 जनवरी 2016 से लागू करने पर सरकार को 40,000-50,000 करोड़ रुपये सालाना का अतिरिक्त बोझ उठाना होगा। फाइनैंस मिनिस्ट्री के अनुमानों के मुताबिक, सरकारी बैंकों को अगले चार वित्त वर्षों में 1.8 लाख करोड़ रुपये की अतिरिक्त पूंजी चाहिए। इसमें से सरकार 70,000 करोड़ रुपये देगी। सरकार ने मौजूदा वित्त वर्ष में इस मद में 25,000 करोड़ रुपये का प्रावधान बजट में किया है। प्रस्ताव के मुताबिक, बॉन्ड्स के मच्योर होने पर ही पेमेंट की नौबत आएगी, जिससे सरकार पर मौजूदा वित्त वर्ष में केवल इंटरेस्ट पेमेंट की जिम्मेदारी बनेगी। 

एक अन्य अधिकारी ने बताया कि बैंकों को यह रकम एक स्पेशल बैंक कैपिटलाइजेशन फंड के जरिए दी जाएगी, जो बैंकों की ओर से जारी परपेचुअल नॉन-रिडीमेबल प्रिफरेंस शेयरों में निवेश करेगा। बैंक 5.1% लाभांश देंगे और उस पर लाभांश वितरण टैक्स न लेने का प्रस्ताव भी है। 

फंड सरकारी कर्मचारियों को 5% ब्याज देगा और ऐडमिनिस्ट्रेटिव चार्ज के रूप में 0.1% अपने पास रख लेगा। अधिकारी ने कहा, 'इंटरेस्ट इनकम भी कर्मचारियों के लिए टैक्स फ्री होगी।' सरकार 8, 9, 10 और 11 वर्षों बाद कर्मचारियों को रकम का भुगतान करेगी।

Innovative approach: Government staff's pay hikes may fund bank capitalization

The government is considering an innovative proposal under which 50% of increased salary of higher-income government staff under the Seventh Pay Commission will be compulsorily invested in bank capitalisation bonds. The proceeds will be used to recapitalise banks without additional pressure on the fiscal.

While this will result in less cash in the hands of higher-income employees, as a sweetener they will get income tax rebate on the amount invested. Those wanting to invest more than 50% to save tax will be allowed to do so. The Bank Recapitalisation Scheme, as this proposal is being called, will be voluntary for employees with lower salaries (those in the Rs 5,200-20,200 bracket) and pensioners. 

A finance ministry official confirmed that preliminary discussions around this proposal were held at a meeting on Thursday, but no decision on its implementation was taken. "The issue was discussed. We are looking at all options," he said. 

"The proposal entails that through a provision under Income Tax Act, tax rebate should be offered to all employees receiving extra salary income through pay commission in the year 2016-17 and 2017-18, provided the money is invested in this Bank Recapitalisation Scheme," added the official. 

The government will have to additionally shell out Rs 40,000-50,000 crore annually on account of implementation of the seventh pay commission recommendations with effect from January 1, 2016. If this proposal is accepted, a portion of this money will be used to capitalise banks. According to finance ministry estimates, state-run banks will require Rs 1.8 lakh crore of additional capital in the next four financial years, of which Rs 70,000 crore will be provided by the government. 

The government has budgeted Rs 25,000 crore for bank capitalisation in the current fiscal. While the government has said it has made adequate provision in the Budget to cover the extra spending on account of the pay commission recommendations, analysts reckon it is not adequate and full implementation of award will make it difficult to achieve the fiscal deficit target of 3.5% of GDP. 

"Increase in government employee wages and pension expenditure on account of seventh pay commission recommendations is not fully provided for in the Budget," Morgan Stanley had said in a report. 

The proposal currently under consideration gives the government the leeway to meet both its pay commission and bank capitalisation commitments without putting the fiscal deficit target under threat. Bonds will provide the exchequer some wriggle room. The payment will become due when bonds mature, leaving the government with only the interest payment liability in the current fiscal. 

The flip side is that the proposed scheme could annoy government employees expecting a greater take-home pay. Hence the scheme has a tax exemption lollipop. 

A second government official said this amount will be used to recapitalise banks through a special bank capitalisation fund that will invest in perpetual non-redeemable preference shares issued by banks. Banks will pay 5.1% dividend that is also proposed to be exempted from the dividend distribution tax. The fund will in turn pay 5% interest to government employees, retaining 0.1% as administrative charge. 

"This interest income will also be tax free for government employees," he said, which will increase the effective yield. The government will eventually pay back the amount in four equal investments after 8, 9, 10 and 11 years, spreading the fiscal burden of repayment over that period. It will guarantee payment of 5% interest and repayment of deposits irrespective of whether the banks pay the dividend or not, the official added.
