Clarification regarding stepping up of pay of senior PAs of CSSS w.r.t. their juniors

G.I., Dept. of Per. & Trg., O.M.No.5/16/2009.CS-II(C), dated 26/27.8.2015

Subject: Clarification regarding stepping up of pay of senior PAs of CSSS w.r.t. their juniors.

The undersigned is directed to say that several references have been received in this Department from Ministries/Departments seeking advice as to whether the pay of the senior PAs can be stepped up at par with that of their junior Shri Jai Bhagwan, PA of Department Commerce (Supply Division) (now in Ministry of Information & Broadcasting). It has also come to the notice of this Department that many Ministries/Departments have already granted stepping up of pay to their PAs at par with the pay of Shri Jai Bhagwan.

2. The issue of fixation of pay of Shri Jai ghagwan, PA has been examined in this Department. As per DoP&T’s O.M.No.35034/1/97-Estt.(D) dated 04th October, 2012, stepping up of pay is allowed to those officials who got their ACPS benefit prior no 1.1.2006 but are drawing less pay than their juniors, who got it after 1.1.2006 subject to certain conditions. Therefore, in all similar cases, the stepping up of pay of a particular senior who got the ACPS benefit before 1.1.2006 could only be allowed with direct reference to a particular junior who got it after 1.1.2006 and got his pay fixed in terrns of para 2(c) of Department of Expenditilre’s U.O. note No.10/1/2009-IC dated 14.12.2009. Any stepping up of pay is not allowable in a chain-like manner. Shri. Jai Bhagwall got ACP on 01.07.2005 and as such, para 2(c) of Department of Expenditure’s U.O. note No.10/1/2009-IC dated 14.12.2009 would apparently not apply in his case. As such, the pay fixation order No.G-12014/1/2008-Admn dated 09.02.2011 of Shri Jai Bhagwan, PA issued by the Department of Commerce (Supply Division) is not in order.

3. Ministry of I&B were requested to explore the possibility of allowing stepping up of pay to Shri Jai Bhagwan, in case his case is covered under the O.M. dated 04.10.2012. Accordingly, DAVP, Mintstry of I&B, re-examined his case and re-fixed his pay w.e.f. 01.07.2006 by granting stepping up of pay with reference to his junior namely Smt. Promila Bandooni. A copy of DAVP, M/o I&B’s Office Order No.A.20012/07/2012-Admn.l dated regarding re-fixation of pay of Shri Jai Bhagwan, PA of CSSS enclosed herewith.

4. In view of the above, all Ministries/Departments are advised to take further necessary action to accordingly review the stepping up of pay already granted to their PAs in comparison to Shri Jai Bhagwan, PA, CSSS and necessary recoveries of excess amount, if any, be effected. in this regard, from the concerned officials.

G.I., Dept. of Per. & Trg., O.M.No.A-20012/07/2012-Admn.I, dated 15/07.2015

As per instructions contained in DOPT’s O.M.No.35034/1/97-Estt.(D) dated 04.10.2012, the pay of shri jai Bhagwan, PA of CSSS Cadre is hereby stepped up w.e.f. 01.07.2006 to an amount equal to the pay of his junior viz. Smt. Promila Bandooni, PA of CSSS cadre of Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Deptt of Commerce (Supply Division) who got he 1st ACP w.e.f. 01.07.2006 in the pay scale of Rs.5500-9000 and fixed as under;

3. The date of next Annual Increment to shri Jai Bhagwan, PA of CSSS cadre will be 01.07.2016, if otherwise admissible.

4. Excess payment, if any______________ made in the form of pay fixation and arrears arising out of the stepping up of pay are subject to recovery in the light of audit objection without further notice.

5. This supersedes all earlier pay fixation orders in respect of Sh.Bhagwan, PA after implementation of the 6th CPC.

7th Pay commission and Awareness from Central Government Pensioners.

The order on Pre-2006 pensioners (OM No: 38/37/08) that was released on 30/07/2015 has effectively solved the problems of the pensioners and has brought them some relief. Through this order, it has been ordered to give pension to all pensioners. This has made the pre-2006 pensioners happy.
At this time, for the attention of all those who are about to become pre-2016 pensioners and those who are going to retire, we have provided details of the problems that arose in multiplication factor (1.86), weightage and fitment table in pre-2006 pension. We have to be careful about these issues in the forthcoming 7th Pay Commission. With this intent, we present this article to you.
Disparity in fixation of pension, between pre 2006 Retirees and past 2006 retirees.
As per judgement in Nagara case, there should not be any disparity in fixation of pension for pre and post retirees, with any cut of date. But, unfortunately bureaucracy are changing original OM with their own views, by issue of clarificatory order which has resulted in disadvantages to the most of the retirees. That was the case in respect of pension fixation done for pre 2006, retirees based on unnecessary clarificatory order dated 03.10.2009 and 14.10.2009. No authority can issue clarification against original OM which was got by President approval. But OM dt. 03.10.2009 and 14.10.2009 have been issued in contravention of original OM fixation was done by multiplying old pension with 1.86 plus 40% weightage for fixating the pension as per the CCS RP para 4.1.
2) An another rule is there 4.2 by indicating that pension should be fixed in the minimum of the pay in Pay Band with Grade Pay, corresponding to the pre revised scale of the government servant, before his retirement. For example, for those who were drawing 6500 – 10500 (Higher Selection Grade- I) they are entitled to get their pension in the minimum of the pay in the Pay band which is corresponding to the old scale of 6500-200-10500 (fitment table for S-13). But pension is fixed 8249. There is a difference of Rs.651 + DR at the rate applicable then and there.
3) Since the difference was more for S-29 pensioners, they filed case by OA No: 655/2010 in principal CAT New Delhi. They got favorable judgement but, the government made an appeal with high court New Delhi, in which they failed. Then government field SLP at Delhi against CAT and High Court orders but, Supreme Court finally upholded CAT and High Court Judgments.
4) Even after, the Government came ready to revise the pension with effect from 24.09.2012 but, S-29 case pensioners approached supreme court against the revision of the pension 24.09.2012 instead of w.e.f 01.01.2006. Issued in contravention at original OM 01.09.2008.
Now, order has been issued to revise pension for the affected pensioners with effect from 01.01.2006, by order dated 30.07.2015
This is the great victory and pride goes to S-29 pensioners, who had conducted a legal battle to achieve then goal.
Therefore, all pensioners, as well as present employees should be very careful to check their pay fixation and pension fixation on the implementation of 7th CPC which is going to effected on 01.01.2016. This is for kind information.

Freedom from revenue stamps for EPFO subscribers

No more revenue stamps on PF claims
Revenue stamp affixing on PF claims done away with
On the eve of Independence Day, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation has done away with the mandatory requirement of affixing one rupee revenue stamp on claim forms. Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, Union Minister of State for Labour & Employment (Independent Charge) stated that this will bring independence from this hassle to millions of PF subscribers every year. This move was taken after consultation with Ministry of Law & Justice who has opined that as per practice, no revenue stamp is required to be fixed in respect of payment made through NEFT.
This will benefit a large number of PF subscribers as in the last year, more than 1 crore subscribers had filed their claims with EPFO. The Minister stated that EPFO is further smoothening the process of PF claim settlement. Elaborating on this, he said that henceforth one rupee revenue stamp will not be required for most of the claim forms as in 97% of the cases of PF settlement, the same is being made through National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT).
Shri Dattatreya further stated that EPFO is further simplifying its forms to ensure hassle free services its subscribers. It is proposed that attestation of employer will no longer be required in cases where the employees have got their KYC information including Aadhar seeded and have activated their UAN. This is aimed at reducing employer dependency in the transactions that an employee would undertake with EPFO. It has been seen that due to over dependence on employers, EPFO subscribers are not able to avail quick and easy services of the organization. By gradually moving towards a regime which recognizes employee identification and authentication through KYC details, this dependence on employer shall be reduced.
