Payment of Over Time Allowance as per 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railways staff : NFIR

Payment of Over Time Allowance as per 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railways staff : NFIR writes letter to Railway Board

No. 1/8/Part II
Dated: 12/07/2017
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Payment of Over Time Allowance on the basis of emoluments of 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels to the staff in Railways with effect from January 1, 2016 – reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/2008/A/O/3 (OTA) dated 17/02/2010 (RBE No. 29/2010) and 20/05/2011 ((RBE No. 72/2011).

*******

Representations have since been received that payment of Over Time Allowance has been denied on certain Zonal Railways (more particularly on North Eastern Railway) due to some confusion with regard to calculation of emoluments in the wake of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix Levels w.e.f. 0l/01/2016.

In the above context, NFIR conveys to the Railway Board that Over Time Allowance is a wage which should be paid by employer when employee is made to perform extra hours of duty in terms of statutory provisions. NFIR also invites Railway Board’s attention to its instructions vide RBE No. 29/2010 and 72/2011 dated 17/10/2010 and 20/05/2011 respectively.
NFIR also conveys that the Ministry of Finance vide notification dated 06th July 2017 (Page No. 39 – S.No. 125) has stated that “Ministries/Departments to prepare a list of those staff coming in the category of Operational Staff “. Rates of Over Time Allowance not to be revised upward”.

So far as Railways is concerned, its employees are governed by the HOER, Factories Act, while certain categories of employees are governed by rules under Departmental overtime. These employees are entitled for payment of overtime allowance with effect from 01/01/2016 on the basis of emoluments drawn by them in the pay levels of VII CPC. NFIR also invites the attention of Railway Board to the DC/JCM Item No.24/2010 and decision thereon vide PC-V/2008/A/O/3 (OTA) dated 20/05/2011.

It is reported that on North Eastern Railway, payment of Over Time Allowance has been denied to the A/C Escorting Staff since the last several months resulting resentment among staff. The denial of OTA payment by North Eastern Railway is a blatant violation of statutory provisions.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to kindly issue instructions to the General Managers etc., to ensure payment of OTA to the staff on the basis of 7th CPC emoluments with effect from January 1,2016. NFIR also requests to issue instructions to GM, N.E. Railway to arrange payment of OTA to the A/C Escorting Staff immediately.

Federation may kindly be apprised at the earliest of action taken on the subject matter.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr. M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

Gifts up to a value of Rs 50,000/- per year by an employer to his employee are outside the ambit of GST

Press Information Bureau

Gifts up to a value of Rs 50,000/- per year by an employer to his employee are outside the ambit of GST. 

However, gifts of value more than Rs 50,000/- made without consideration are subject to GST, when made in the course or furtherance of business.
It is being reported that gifts and perquisites supplied by companies to their employees will be taxed under GST. Gifts upto a value of Rs 50,000/- per year by an employer to his employee are outside the ambit of GST. However, gifts of value more than Rs 50,000/- made without consideration are subject to GST, when made in the course or furtherance of business. 

The question arises as to what constitutes a gift. Gift has not been defined in the GST law. In common parlance, gift is made without consideration, is voluntary in nature and is made occasionally. It cannot be demanded as a matter of right by the employee and the employee cannot move a court of law for obtaining a gift. 

Another issue is the taxation of perquisites. It is pertinent to point out here that the services by an employee to the employer in the course of or in relation to his employment is outside the scope of GST (neither supply of goods or supply of services). It follows therefrom that supply by the employer to the employee in terms of contractual agreement entered into between the employer and the employee, will not be subjected to GST. Further, the Input Tax Credit (ITC) Scheme under GST does not allow ITC of membership of a club, health and fitness centre [section 17 (5) (b) (ii)]. It follows, therefore, that if such services are provided free of charge to all the employees by the employer then the same will not be subjected to GST, provided appropriate GST was paid when procured by the employer. The same would hold true for free housing to the employees, when the same is provided in terms of the contract between the employer and employee and is part and parcel of the cost-to-company (C2C).
