7 CPC - Addl. increment for every 2 stages bunched due to fixation - reg

7 CPC - Addl. increment for every 2 stages bunched due to fixation - reg

Dear Viewers
I wish to share something useful to all. Many of our fellow govt. employees may not be aware that the 7 CPC has given a pay fixaton rule beneficial for the seniors whose pay is going to be bunched after multiplying with fitment factor with a junior in the same cadre. Earlier due to MACP or other reasons if a junior is drawing more pay no stepping up is allowed. Now by this formula/rule hope the seniors may get benefitted. Please read the Para's 5.1.36 and 5.1.37 of 7 CPC report.

Bottled Gangajal at all post offices proves to be hit

KOLKATA: Bottled 'Gangajal' from Rishikesh has vanished from the shelves within two days of India Post having launched the sale from its 47 head post offices throughout West Bengal.

"We have seen a surprising demand for this bottled Gangajal from Rishikesh... We started selling it from Sunday and by Tuesday the stock was totally sold out," Chief Post Master General, West Bengal Circle, Arundhaty Ghosh told PTI. 

Union Ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and Manoj Sinha on Sunday launched the new scheme which made easy availability of Ganga water at all post offices across the country. 

Two varieties of Gangajal -- one bottled in Gangotri and the other one in Rishikesh, some 300km downstream -- were available. 

Gangajal, packaged in bottles of 200ml and 500ml in Rishikesh were sold from the city's General Post Office (GPO) and 46 other head post offices including Howrah, Midnapore, Tamluk and Siliguri. 

"The demand is quite high and we were unable to match it because the supply was quite meagre for the first batch," Ghosh said. 

While the city saw 15 bottles of 'Gangajal' collected in Rishikesh vanishing on the first date, five bottles of 200ml were sold out within minutes in Siliguri. 

"Those bottles we have sold so far were bottled in Rishikesh. We are yet to receive those bottled in Gangotri. But the response was very encouraging," the CPMG said. 

On the reasons behind the "sold out" of the Gangajal, Ghosh reasoned that "the great sentiment associated with the holy water of the Ganges from Rishikesh". 

The 200ml bottled Gangajal from Rishikesh is priced at Rs 15 while the 500ml costs Rs 22, Ghosh said. 

"The Gangotri water will be slightly costlier with the 200ml bottle pried at Rs 25, the 500ml bottle is priced at Rs 35," the CPMG added. 

In fact, orders have been placed for a quick supply of bottles to meet the demand, she stated. 

"We have placed new orders for an immediate supply. But it may take some time to reach West Bengal because of bad roads in Uttarakhand," Ghosh said adding that a small consignment will arrive soon. 

"So far we have managed to get a small consignment because the demand from other parts of the country is also quite high. But we are trying to get more," the official said. 

Talking about the sale online, the CPMG said, "People can place their order directly online to get the bottles packed in a beautiful box at the doorstep." 

For bottles online, one need to pay the charges equal to that of charges of the Speed Post. 

"Here, in West Bengal online charges are likely to vary depending on the distance. There can be a price difference," another official at the Postal department said. 

According to Ghosh, this will definitely be a big boost for business of the Postal department. 

The initiative was taken up by the Narendra Modi government to deliver the holy water from the Ganga at the doorstep of every Indian across the length and breadth of the country using the vast postal network.

e-Aadhaar valid document for new mobile connections: DoT

New Delhi, July 13 (PTI) The e-Aadhaar letter or the downloaded version of the card from the UIDAI website, can now be used as a valid identity and address proof document for taking a new mobile connection.

This has been clarified by the Department of Telecom which has also placed the onus of verifying the details mentioned in the e-Aadhaar letter - including name, address, date of birth, gender - from the UIDAI, on the representative manning the point of sale.

The authorised person at the shop will also have to record a declaration saying that the customer details mentioned in the e-Aadhaar letter have been matched with the details received from the UIDAI.

Earlier this year, in a representation to the DoT, COAI Director General Rajan Mathews and AUSPI Secretary General, Ashok Sud had made a case for acceptance of e-Aadhaar as a valid document for issuance of mobile connection.

"It is amply clear that there is no difference in the hard copy of Aadhaar received through Speed Post and the e-Aadhaar taken from the UIDAI website. Therefore, we request your kind intervention to issue requisite instructions and inform...that e-Aadhaar is acceptable," the two industry bodies had said.

At present, there are many applicants who have not yet received the hard copy of their Aadhaar cards through Speed Post, although they may have the electronic copy of their Aadhaar card available through the UIDAI website. DoT's clarification would make it more convenient for such prospective customers to apply for new connections.

7th CPC Fitment Formula and Pay Fixation in the New Pay Structure

Fitment Formula is 2.57

This fitment factor rainging from 2.57 to 2.81 is being proposed to be applied for ranging from level 1 to level 18 Actual hike in the basic pay is 14.29 %

Fitment

5.1.27 The starting point for the first level of the matrix has been set at ₹18,000. This corresponds to the starting pay of ₹7,000, which is the beginning of PB-1 viz., ₹5,200 + GP 1800, which prevailed on 01.01.2006, the date of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations. Hence the starting point now proposed is 2.57 times of what was prevailing on 01.01.2006. This fitment factor of 2.57 is being proposed to be applied uniformly for all employees. It includes a factor of 2.25 on account of DA neutralisation, assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay. Accordingly, the actual raise/fitment being recommended is 14.29 percent.

Pay Fixation in the New Pay Structure

5.1.28. The fitment of each employee in the new pay matrix is proposed to be done by multiplying his/her basic pay on the date of implementation by a factor of 2.57. The figure so arrived at is to be located in the new pay matrix, in the level that corresponds to the employee’s grade pay on the date of implementation, except in cases where the Commission has recommended a change in the existing grade pay. If the identical figure is not available in the given level, the next higher figure closest to it would be the new pay of the concerned employee. A couple of examples are detailed below to make the process amply clear.

5.1.29 The pay in the new pay matrix is to be fixed in the following manner: Step 1: Identify Basic Pay (Pay in the pay band plus Grade Pay) drawn by an employee as on the date of implementation. This figure is ‘A’. Step 2: Multiply ‘A’ with 2.57, round-off to the nearest rupee, and obtain result ‘B’. Step 3: The figure so arrived at, i.e., ‘B’ or the next higher figure closest to it in the Level assigned to his/her grade pay, will be the new pay in the new pay matrix. In case the value of ‘B’ is less than the starting pay of the Level, then the pay will be equal to the starting pay of that level.

Example I

  • For example an employee H is presently drawing Basic Pay of ₹55,040 (Pay in the Pay Band ₹46340 + Grade Pay ₹8700 = ₹55040). After multiplying ₹55,040 with 2.57, a figure of ₹1,41,452.80 is arrived at. This is rounded off to ₹1,41,453.
  • The level corresponding to GP 8700 is level 13, as may be seen from Table 4, which gives the full correspondence between existing Grade Pay and the new Levels being proposed.
  • In the column for level 13, the figure closest to ₹1,41,453 is ₹1,41,600.
  • Hence the pay of employee H will be fixed at ₹1,41,600 in level 13 in the new pay matrix as shown below

Example II

  • Take the case of an employee T in GP 4200, drawing pay of ₹20,000 in PB-2. The Basic Pay is ₹24,200 (20,000+4200). If there was to be no change in T’s level the pay fixation would have been as explained in Example I above. After multiplying by 2.57, the amount fetched viz., ₹62,194 would have been located in Level 6 and T’s pay would have been fixed in Level 6 at ₹62,200.
  • However, assuming that the Commission has recommended that the post occupied by T should be placed one level higher in GP 4600. T’s basic pay would then be ₹24,600 (20000 + 4600). Multiplying this by 2.57 would fetch ₹63,222.
  • This value would have to be located in the matrix in Level 7 (the upgraded level of T).
  • In the column for Level 7 ₹63,222 lies between 62200 and 64100. Accordingly, the pay of T will be fixed in Level 7 at ₹64,100.

7th Pay Commission news: Calculate salary hike using this UPDATED calculator based on final CPC recommendations

July 12 : The Narendra Modi government approved the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, which will be implemented from January 1, this year. The final recommendations of the Commission came this week and according to those, the calculator has also been tweaked. The beneficiaries of the recommendations can calculate their salaries, by using this new updated calculator. The government has finally approved 14.4% basic salary and 23.5% overall hike (including the allowances), and the beneficiaries will start getting the benefits from August 1.

The most awaited salary hike by some 47 lakh central government employees and 57 lakh pensioners will finally be implemented from August 1, and since the implementation is from January 1, six months worth of arrears will also be paid to the beneficiaries. The benefits of the 7th Pay Commission will be paid in the same financial year, something that has probably endeared the NDA government to central government employees. If you are a beneficiary of the current Pay Commission recommendations, you can click here to access the new updated calculator. 

The implementation of the recommendations has made the following changes- the salary of C-grade (who provide assistance) government employees will be Rs 18,000 per month, B-grade (middle management) employees will take home minimum 25,000 salary monthly, whereas, A-grade (higher administrative position) employee will draw salaries as high as 40,000 to 45,000 per month.

7th Pay Commission recommendations on Fixation of Pension for Pre-2016 Pensioners to maintain parity between Pensioners who retired before the effective date of implementation of 7th Pay Commission and Post-2016 Pensioners

7th Pay Commission recommendations on Fixation of Pension for Pre-2016 Pensioners to maintain parity between Pensioners who retired before the effective date of implementation of 7th Pay Commission and Post-2016 Pensioners

All the civilian personnel including CAPF who retired prior to 01.01.2016 (expected date of implementation of the Seventh CPC recommendations) shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by this Commission, on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the matrix.

(i) This amount shall be raised, to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree, by adding the number of increments he/she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. Fifty
percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.
(ii) The second calculation to be carried out is as follows. The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations, shall be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.
Pensioners may be given the option of choosing whichever formulation is beneficial to them.
It is recognised that the fixation of pension as per formulation in (i) above may take a little time since the records of each pensioner will have to be checked to ascertain the number of increments earned in the retiring level. It is therefore recommended that in the first instance the revised pension may be calculated as at (ii) above and the same may be paid as an interim measure.
In the event calculation as per (i) above yields a higher amount the difference may be paid subsequently.
Illustration on fixation of pension based on recommendations of the Seventh CPC.

The State Bank of India (SBI) is all set to chalk out plans, regarding offering work from home option to its female employees. The bank will initially be checking the technological feasibility of allowing women employees to work from home for some functions. There are approximately 45,000 women working with the SBI, and this decision has been taken in order to retain women staff.

According to Prepsure reports, the option to work from home is being planned to retain the retention of women staff. Earlier, ICICI started the work from home option, making it easier for women, to manage home as well as job.

In March 2016 on International Women's Day, Chanda Kochhar, managing director and chief executive officer of ICICI Bank had launched 'iWork@home' for women employees. Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi contributed in developing the technology platform for the ICICI Bank.

About iWork 

As per the initiative, the iWork initiative allows women employees to work from home for up to a year. It also allows the home option to get extended for more than one year, based on the requirements of the employee. Over 50 women have been made part of this system and more than 100 requests have been received for this. There has also been an increase in productivity where women have been enabled to work from home.
Mentioned below are the main features of iWork@home initiative:
  • It is first-of-its-kind programme which allows women employees to work from home
  • This unique programme replicates the work environment at home by giving its employees an access to work applications in a safe and secure manner
  • Women can work from home for one year, which can be further extended

Supreme Court Notice to Central Govt for non implementation of the OROP scheme

One Rank One Pension – Supreme Court Notice to Central Govt for non implementation of the OROP scheme -The matter was heard by a Bench of Justices Dipak Misra and C Nagappan.

The Supreme Court today issued notice to the Central government in a petition filed by the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement seeking a declaration that non implementation of the One rank one pension scheme, violates Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution.

The matter was heard by a Bench of Justices Dipak Misra and C Nagappan. Senior Advocate Ram Jethmalani appeared for the petitioner.

The petitioner is a body of ex-servicemen’s organisations as well as individual military veterans from all three Defence forces – Army, Navy and Air Force.

One rank one pension is the uniform payment of pension to ex-servicemen who retire in the same rank with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement. It also involves future enhancement in the rates for recent pensioners being passed on to the past pensioners.

In the petition drawn by advocate Arunava Mukherjee and filed through advocate Balaji Srinivasan, the petitioners have given an exhaustive history of OROP. They have claimed that OROP was followed for 26 years after independence but was “unjustly changed” in 1973 on the recommendation of the Third Central Pay Commission.

The petition then goes on to criticise both the UPA government and the current NDA government for denying OROP to ex-servicemen.

According to the petitioner, the UPA government “astronomically enhanced the salary of civil servants” and introduced Non-functional Financial Upgradation scheme for civil servants but the same was not allowed for Defence services.
“… these decisions had the effect of arbitrarily and discriminatorily downgrading the pay-grades, pension, allowances and status of Defence Services”, the petition states.
The petitioner has also trained its gun on the current NDA government.

Under the head “False promises made to ex-servicemen and electoral fraud on voters”, the petition states that,

“During his election campaign, Mr. Narendra Modi promised that OROP will be implemented. Although, the Hon’ble Defence Minister had worked out a package with an expected outlay of Rs. 8296.40 crores per annum, it is yet to be implemented.”

However, the major grievance of the petitioner is that though the Central government sanctioned OROP, the true meaning of OROP was,

“Illegally twisted by the government to create a perverse definition and murder the spirit of the OROP.”

In a letter written on November 7, 2015, by the Joint Secretary of Department of Ex-servicemen Welfare, to the Chiefs of Army Staff, Naval Staff and Air Staff, the settled and true definition of OROP was “arbitrarily and cunningly altered”.
“It described OROP as uniform payment of pension to retired servicemen retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, regardless of their date of retirement which implies bridging the gap between the rates of pension of current and past pensioners at periodic intervals. It is submitted that the new perverse definition of OROP does not include that any future enhancement in the rates for recent pensioners would be “automatically” passed on to the past pensioners.”
The petitioner has contended that this new definition will lead to a situation where the pension of an ex-serviceman who retired earlier will be less than the pension drawn by an ex-serviceman who retires in 2014 until an annual periodic review is done to correct the anomaly.

Relying on the case of Union of India v. SPS Vains, the petitioner has submitted that this is arbitrary, unconstitutional and violative of Articles 14 and 21. Based on the above, the petitioner has made of slew of prayers including a prayer to quash the letter of November 7, 2015 as unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court after hearing the matter issued notice to the Centre, with the one rank one pension matter likely to be listed after eight weeks.

Dissatisfaction over 7th Pay Commission Anomalies

Dissatisfaction over 7th Pay Commission ‘Anomalies’

New Delhi: It was supposed to get praise but all it generated was bitterness. The 7th pay commission recommendations should have come as good news for the central government employees as it will give them more money in the pocket and a number of other perks.


Overall, the government gave its nod for 23.55 per cent hike the salaries and allowances for the central government employees. They are also getting arrears from January.

Instead of gratitude the government is hearing unhappy outbursts from the very people it is supposed to please. The cause is increasing 14.27 per cent in basic pay for Central government employees, the lowest in 70 years.

The National Joint Council Action (NJCA), a confederation of 3.3 million central government employees, has been one of the most vocal protesters of increasing minimum pay Rs 18,000 since the cabinet approved minimum pay from existing Rs 7000 to Rs 18,000 on June 29.

The Central government employees’ Unions have been pressing for fixing “anomalies” in the pay scale. They are demanding minimum pay Rs. 26,000 instead of Rs 18,000 with 3.68 fitment factor, which cabinet approved fitment factor 2.57 to hike basic pay only 14.27 per percent.

The Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu then stepped in and assured the unions leaders that the issues raised by them would be considered by the High Level Committee, which will soon be set up and the government will take steps accordingly.
The Central government employees’ Unions not only demands hiking in pay scales but also asked the other anomalies in 7th pay commission recommendations like abolition of some allowances and advances that should be fixed.

After receiving of 7th pay commission recommendations on November 19 from Justice A K Mathur, who headed the commission, the government formed a 13 member secretary-level Empowered Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha in January to review the report of the 7th Pay Commission before cabinet nod.
The Empowered Committee of Secretaries recommended a 30 per cent increase in the central government employees’ basic pay and minimum basic pay to Rs 21,000 per month. They also recommended for doubling of existing rates of allowances and advances but the cabinet didn’t accept any suggestion of the Empowered Committee for cabinet nod of 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The cabinet went for ditto, the 7th pay commission recommendations.
The cabinet asked to refer all allowances including HRA, transport allowance to a committee headed by Finance Secretary for examination of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations on its. The committee shall submit its report within four months

However, the notification on 7th Pay Commission recommendations is under process in Finance Ministry and it will be issued shortly and payment may be made from August with hiking basic salary from 14.27 per cent as well as allowances to be paid as per the existing rates in existing pay structure, not like the 7th pay commission recommendations.

However, the central government employees’ Unions are ready to wait for four months for more hiking in the basic pay and allowances.

Hence, the cabinet approval of 7th pay commission recommendations gave more agony for the central government employees.

E-filing: ATM-based validation facility enhanced

New Delhi, Jul 13 (PTI) The Income Tax department has widened the ATM-based validation system for filing e-ITRs by taxpayers with the inclusion of Axis Bank, after SBI, as part of its measure to enhance the paperless regime of filing the annual I-T returns.

"Now, Electronic Verification Code (EVC) can also be generated by pre-validating Automated Teller Machine (ATM) provided by Axis Bank. SBI had activated the facility last month. Other banks are also expected to join soon," a senior I-T department official said.

In May this year, the department had launched the bank account-based validation facility in this regard for those who have not availed the internet banking facility.

The new facility is available on the official e-filing portal of the department- http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ and will work by using the One Time Password (OTP) verification system as activated by the department last year by using the Aadhaar number.

These measures are used to validate the e-ITR so that the taxpayer does not take the trouble of sending the paper-based ITR-V by post to the Bengaluru-based Central Processing Centre (CPC) for final resolution and processing.

The new ITRs have been notified early this year and taxpayers can e-file thier ITRs till July 31.

ITR-1 can be filed by individuals having income from salaries, one house property and from other sources including interest.

ITR-2 is filed by Individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) not having income from business or profession.

ITR-2A is filed by those individuals and HUFs who do not have income from business or profession and capital gains and who do not hold foreign assets.
