India Post Payments Bank, IPPB has started its recruitment drive with the release of the advertisement for the post of the Chief Executive Officer/ Managing Director, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO), other CXOs who will be heading its Operations, Risk and Compliance, Finance, HR & Administration and Sales and Marketing Departments. It has also advertised for some contractual positions across multiple Departments. Regular recruitment for other positions across scale I-VII will also be announced in the coming weeks. IPPB has also called for deputations from Public Sector Banks for some corporate HQ positions and will shortly be seeking deputations from banks, post office & other Government Departments for its branch locations. IPPB plans to recruit about 3,500 professionals in the coming months. Details are available on the India Post website. 

IPPB will be headquartered in New Delhi and plans to launch 650 branches across the country by the next year. The India Post Payments Bank will leverage the widespread reach and the trust that the Post office enjoys in the minds of the citizen to truly drive financial inclusion. 

With all 1.54 lakh Post offices, including 1.39 lakh rural post offices as its access points and 650 Payments bank branches in district Headquarter locations, it will be the most accessible bank in the world in terms of reach. It will deploy state of the art technology to make banking both simple and convinient to its customers. IPPB calls upon dedicated and committed professionals who would want to be part of the journey to create a national financial architecture which will connect every citizen with the financial services that they need to access. 

It may be recalled that the India Post Payments Bank Limited has received the Certificate of Incorporation from the Registrar of Companies, Ministry of Corporate Affairs on 17th August, 2016 under the Companies Act 2013. This would be the first PSU under the Department of Posts. This has happened in the wake of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Independence Day address, raising the expectations of the people from the soon to be set up India Post Payments Bank. With this move the Department of Posts has cleared an important milestone on this journey. 

The Department of Posts is expected to complete the roll out of its branches all over the country by September 2017. This could be the fastest roll out for a bank anywhere in the world.

Solution for the APY double deduction of subscription in DOP Finacle

  • APY stands for Atal Pension Yojana which in introduced for all the individuals or existing Swavalamban Yojana subscribers above 18 years and below 40 years of age only.
  • APY is basically savings plan in which returns will come just like a pension.
  • APY contribution can be either montly/quarterly/half-yearly or yearly depending upon the requirement of the customer.
  • For detailed latest Standard Operating Procedure users can CLICK HERE
  • Generally in DOP Finacle we use the menu CAPY to create standing instruction from SB account.
  • But sometimes due to technical fault the amount may be deducted twice from the customer SB accounts towards APY contribution.
  • Let us see one example where system deducted twice the subscription as shown in the below example

From the above screen shot it is clear that system deducted Rs 90/- twice for APY on 23/08/2016 in our example as per the screen shot.

Solution for the above Problem :- 

For the above case the solution given by the HD team is as follows
The APY account has not been opened twice for the SB account, but the premium is debited twice due to server issues. We have raised FDMS ID 13546 for fixing such issues. The premium collected will be in DOP office account. The refund the amount back to customer account needs be handled procedurally by DOP, using HTM menu option and by debiting the office account [11000100APY01] and crediting the customer account. Kindly advise the team on refunding the costumer procedural.
  • The operating procedure is in counter PA login invoke the menu HTM with transaction type as Customer induced and given debit account id as "11000100APY01 with reversal amount and credit to respective SB account".Finally submit the transaction then the system will generate the transaction id note down the tranaction id.
  • In the next step invoke the menu HTM in the supervisor login and verify the transaction.

Dopt orders on MACP: Benchmark to be enhanced from Good to Very Good for all the posts
G.I, Dep. of Per. & Trg., O.M. No.F.No.35034/3/2015-Estt.(D), dated 28.09.2016


Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for the Central Government Civilian Employees : Implementation of Seventh CPC recommendations.

The Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme was introduced with effect from 01.09.2008 in pursuance of the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission by this Department’s OM No.35034/3/2008-Estt(D) dated 19th May, 2009. Subsequently, clarifications/ FAQs were issued vide OM dated 16.11.2009, 09.09.2010, 01.04.2011, 13.06.2012, 04.10.2012 and 10.12.2014. These instructions are in force with effect from 01.09.2008.

2. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) in para 5.1.44 of its report has recommended inter-alia as follows:

MACP will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. In the new Pay Matrix, the employee will move to immediate next level in hierarchy. Fixation of pay will follow the same principle as that for a regular promotion in the Pay Matrix. MACPS will continue to be applicable to all employees up to Higher Administrative Grade (HAG) level except members of Organised Group A Services.

3. The Government has considered the above recommendation and has accepted the same. In the light of the recommendations of the 7th CPC accepted by the Government, the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) will continue to be administered at 10, 20 and 30 years as before. Further, Para 1 and 2 of the existing Scheme (Annexure to this Department's OM No. 35024/3/2008-Estt.D dated 19th May, 2009) will be substituted by the following words:-

1. There shall be three financial upgradations under the MACPS as per 7th CPC recommendations, counted from the direct entry grade on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years services respectively or 10 years of continuous service in the same level in Pay Matrix, whichever is earlier.

2. The MACPS envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher level in the Pay Matrix as given in PART A of Schedule of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Thus, the level in the Pay Matrix at the time of financial upgradation under the MACPS can, in certain cases where regular promotion is not between two successive levels in the Pay Matrix, be different than what is available at the time of regular promotion. In such cases, the higher level in the Pay Matrix attached to the next promotion post in the hierarchy of the concerned cadre/organisation will be given only at the time of regular promotion.

4. The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) in Para 5.1.45 of its report has interalia recommended as follows:

Benchmark for performance appraisal for promotion and financial upgradation under MACPS to be enhanced from Good to Very Good.

17. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be Very Good for all the posts.

6. These changes will come into effect from 25th July, 2016, i.e., from the date of resolution notified by Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance regarding acceptance of the recommendation of the 7th CPC.

7. The comprehensive MACP Scheme on acceptance of Seventh Central Pay Commission recommendations will be issued separately.

Minimum wage and multiplication factor : Unions started "Strike" drama again

It has been crystal clear that Govt. is not at all considering enhancement of multiplication factor or minimum wages, the existence of the national leaders of union is surely at stake. Employees with lowest increase in the pay commission effect ever were in the mood of agitation and spontaneously welcomed the decision of indefinite strike. But they watched with disbelief that their own leaders were much more active to withdraw the strike than the Govt. Leaders claimed that Govt. assured them to form a high level committee to consider their demands but later on the FM categorically denied any such possibility. Employees have no trust upon their leaders and they hardly believe any such commitment was actually made by Govt.
To regain faith or keep their office of profit intact, the leaders once again started the hype of agitation, details of which is given below.

"1ST PHASE – 20TH OCTOBER 2016 – THURSDAY

Demonstration at all centres/all office gates and forwarding of resolutions adopted on charter of demands to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India (2) Hon’ble Home Minister (3) Hon’ble Finance Minister and all Departmental heads.

2ND PHASE – 7TH NOVEMBER 2016 – MONDAY

Mass dharna at all state capitals/important centres.

3RD PHASE – 15TH DECEMBER 2016 – THURSDAY

Massive Parliament March of not less than 20000 Central Government employees.

4TH PHASE – STRIKE JOINTLY WITH ALL LIKE MINDED ORGANISATIONS

Date will be decided in consultation with other organisations." 
Let us see how the employees react this time !

Kendriya Bhandar answerable under RTI Act: CIC

Press Trust of India | New Delhi October 2, 2016

Government employees' cooperative society Kendriya Bhandar will now be answerable under the Right to Information Act as the Central Information Commission has declared it to be a public authority under the law. 

The Commission said the Central Government holds 81.30 per cent of the paid up capital as per the accounts of the Ministry of Public Grievance and Pension submitted by it to Parliament for the year 2008-09. 

Subsequently, it was registered with Central Registrar of Cooperative Societies, Govt of India as a Multi State Consumer Cooperative Society in September, 2000," it says.

"This implies that the Central Government is a majority shareholder of Kendriya Bhandar. Also, holding of majority equity shares implies that the Central Government is the owner of Kendriya Bhandar," Information Commissioner Sudhir Bhargava said in his order. 

He said to corroborate, recourse can be made to Section 617 of the Companies Act, 1956 which states that where 51 per cent or more paid up capital is held by the Central Government or the State Government, such company shall be a government company. 

Kendriya Bhandar, which was approached by several RTI applicants including activist R K Jain on wide range of topics, had claimed that it does not come under the ambit of the transparency law. 

It cited a Supreme Court judgement in Thalappalam Ser Cooperative Bank Ltd versus State of Kerala and others to seek exemption from the RTI Act. 

"The said case will not be applicable to the present matter as the Supreme Court has restricted itself to the cases of cooperative societies registered or deemed to be registered under the Cooperative Societies Act which are not owned, controlled or substantially financed by the State or Central Government or formed or Constituted bylaw made by the Parliament or State Legislature," the complainants argued. 

Rejecting the arguments of Kendriya Bhandar, Bhargava said the Commission, is of the view that since the Central Government is a majority shareholder up to the extent of owning 81.60 per cent of paid up capital is the owner of Kendriya Bhandar or in other words Kendriya Bhandar is owned by the Central Government within the meaning of Section 2(h)(d)(i) of the RTI Act. 

"The Commission also observes that in order for an authority to be declared as 'Public Authority' so as to be amenable under the RTI Act it has to qualify the test of Section 2(h) of the RTI Act," he said. 

The website of Kendriya Bhandar says it was set up in 1963 in pursuance of Union Cabinet decision as a welfare project for the benefit of Central Government employees and public at large. 

"It is functioning under aegis of Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Government of India and was registered with Delhi Registrar of Cooperative Societies.

Department of Posts releases two Commemorative Stamps on Gandhi Jayanti

Swachh Bharat Mission is fast taking shape of a mass movement - Manoj Sinha.

The Union Minister for Communications Shri Manoj Sinha said that Swachh Bharat Mission got a new impetus in the country after the Prime Minister launched the Mission on 2nd October, 2014, and in the last two years the steps taken in this direction whether regarding construction of toilets or Solid and Liquid Waste Management, India has created a sort of World Record. Paying Tributes to Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shashtri on their Birth Anniversaries, Shri Sinha expressed happiness that on the occasion of second anniversary of Swachh Bharat Mission, one lakh villages have become Open Defecation Free. He said, cleanliness was part of Indian culture and legacy, but somewhere we lost the path and reminded the audience that Mahatma Gandhi talked about the cleanliness at length in the Calcutta Congress Session in way back in 1901 and after more than 110 years, the swachh movement got a new impetus because of the dynamism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Shri Sinha was speaking at a function here, where two commemorative stamps on Swachh Bharat Mission and a miniature sheet were released in the Presence of Union Minister for Urban Development Shri M.Venkaiah Naidu.

Shri Sinha said, “A clean India would be the best tribute, India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150 birth anniversary on 2nd October 2019, as was dreamt of by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said, with citizens now becoming active participants in cleanliness activities across the nation, the Swachh Bharat Mission is fast taking shape of a mass movement.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Naidu informed that all the 170 towns of Gujrat and 110 cities of Andhra Pradesh have become ODF today. He said that Clean Mission is a very big mission and the entire country has to work to achieve the goal as it is neither a political programme nor a Government Scheme, but a National Mission. He appealed to the Youth of the country to come forward and take the responsibility of making India clean by 2019. He informed that the Government is considering to change the name of Shouchalaya as Swachhalaya.

Shri Naidu said even as the Prime Minister is galvanising all sections of society and people of all age groups through his “Mann Ki Baat” radio addresses, he also wants that the Centre, States, Municipalities, Village Panchayats should work in the spirit of Team India by taking all sections of society in the true spirit of cooperative federalism. He commended the postal department for taking up the cleanliness drive in the Mission mode and said that the Postman reaches the Last Man in the Country and in that sense they can fulfil the dream of Antodaya-Justice to the last man, the vision of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhayaya.

Secretary, Department of Posts Shri B.V.Sudhakar said that Swachh Bharat Mission is a Silent Revolution that is happening in India, but this is also a Peaceful, Powerful and Pure Revolution. He said, a Clean India will be a Healthy India and a Healthy India will be a Productive India which will promote high growth. He said, a healthy competition has begun in all walks of life to out beat others in cleanliness index. As a part of Swachh Bharat Mission, Department of Posts organised a nation-wide competition inviting entries for designing the commemorative postage stamps of denominations of Rs 25 and Rs 5 and a miniature sheet. The designs on the stamp & miniature sheet are based on three best entries submitted by Ms. Binita Biswajeeta, Ms. Sanjula S. and Ms. Arushi Aggarwal in the above competition. On this occasion, the awards for best post offices in Haryana and Delhi Postal Circles were also given.

7th Pay Commission Bunching of Stages in Revised Pay Structure – OM dated 7th September 2016
  • The Govt has also defined now the meaning of “Stage” in the OM dated 7th September 2016. Pay drawn by two Government servants in a given Pay Band and Grade pay or scale where the higher pay is at least 3% more than the lower pay shall constitute two stages.
  • The illustration provided in 7th Pay Commission report for the purpose of granting Bunching Increment was relating to Entry Pay only in the the new Pay Matrix viz., As per Illustration provided in the report Employees in GP 10,000 who are fitted in to minimum of Level 14 of New Pay Matrix will be eligible for one additional increment and would be fitted in to next cell of Level 14.
  • However, as per the OM dated 7th September 2016, which has clearly defined the meaning of Stage as far as 6th CPC pay is concerned, the bunching benefit will also be applicable to fixation of 7th CPC pay for all the indices of new pay matrix in addition to entry pay.

7th Pay Commission Pay Fixation:

As per Para 5.1.28 of 7th Pay Commission Report, pay fixation in the new pay structure will have to be made as follows

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

7th Pay Commission bunching Benefit:

In addition to above, 7th Pay Commission proposes bunching benefit in Para 5.1.36 whenever more than two stages are bunched together for fixation of pay in 7th CPC pay matrix, one additional increment equal to 3 percent may be given for every two stages bunched, and pay fixed in the subsequent cell in the pay matrix.

Further, Para 5.1.37 of the report provides an illustration for fixation of pay of two employees who are drawing pay of ₹53,000 and ₹54,590 in the GP 10000.

As per this illustration, after applying 7CPC multiplication factor of 2.57, both of these employees will have to be fixed in first cell of level 15 in the pay of ₹1,44,200 as their revisesd pay are worked out to ₹1,36,210 and ₹1,40,296 respectively which are not more than the first cell of level 15 (₹1,44,200)

But to avoid bunching of these two stages of pay, the person drawing pay of ₹54,590 will get fixed in second cell of level 15 in the pay of ₹1,48,500, while the other who is drawing pay of ₹ 53,000 will have to be fixed in ₹1,44,200.

Based on this illustration, a table containing Entry pay of Rs. 53,000 in GP 10000, subsequent stages for this pay (pay with increment of 3% for every year) and 7th Pay Commission pay fixation for the same has been prepared as below.

Applying same principles, we could find that next stage in entry pay in respect of Grade Pay 1800, 1900. 2000, PB-3-5400, 6600, 7600 and 8900 would be entitled to one additional increment as bunching benefit.
