ஏற்கனவே 2016, ஜூன் 30ந் தேதி அமைச்சரவை குழுவுடன் நடைபெற்ற பேச்சு வார்த்தையில் NJCA  தலைவர்களுக்கு  புதிய ஓய்வூதியத் திட்டத்தில் முன்னேற்றங்கள் செய்திட உயர்மட்டக்  குழு அமைக்கப்படும் என்ற உறுதிமொழி அளிக்கப்பட்டது உங்களுக்குத் தெரியும்  . ஆனால் உயர்மட்டக் குழு அமைப்பதற்கு முன்னதாகவே   1.1.2004 முதல் பணியாற்றும் ஊழியர்களுக்கு  புதிய ஓய்வூதியத் திட்டத்தில்  DCRG அளிக்கப்படும் என்ற உத்திரவு  மத்திய அரசினால் கடந்த 26.8.2016 அன்று வெளியிடப்பட்டது. இது ஒரு மிகப்பெரும் வெற்றியாகும்.

மத்திய அரசு ஊழியர்களுக்கு போனஸ் உச்ச வரம்பு நீக்கப்படவேண்டும் என்று நாம் பலகாலம் போராடி வருகிறோம். செப். 2 , 2016 வேலை நிறுத்த கோரிக்கைகளில் இதுவும் ஒன்று. கடந்த ஆண்டு இதே ஒரு நாள் வேலை நிறுத்த அறிவிப்பின் விளைவாக  11 மையத்  தொழிற் சங்கங்களுடன் நடைபெற்ற பேச்சு வார்த்தையின் பின்னர் ,போனஸ் உச்சவரம்பை  ரூ. 3500/- உள்ளிருந்து  ரூ. 7000/- ஆக உயர்த்திட மத்திய அமைச்சரவைக்கு குழு முடிவெடுத்து,  பின்னர் நிதி அமைச்சகத்தினால் உத்திரவும் இடப்பட்டு , GAZETTE  NOTIFICATION  கூட வெளியிடப்பட்டது உங்களுக்கு மறந்திருக்க முடியாது . 

ஆனால் பின்னர் இந்த  உத்திரவு மத்திய அரசு ஊழியர்களுக்குப் பொருந்தாது என்று அறிவிக்கப்பட்டதும் உங்களுக்குத்  தெரியும் . ஆனால் நேற்று மத்திய அரசின் நிலையில்  மாற்றம். 29.8.2016 அன்று மத்திய நிதி அமைச்சகத்தால்   2014-2015 நிதி ஆண்டிலிருந்து மத்திய அரசு ஊழியர்களுக்கு ( PLB  மற்றும் ADHOC BONUS)  போனஸ் உச்சவரம்பு  ரூ. 3500/- இலிருந்து ரூ. 7000/- ஆக உயர்த்தி வழங்கப்படும் என்ற உத்திரவை திடீரென  வெளியிட்டுள்ளது. 

செப்டம்பர்  2, வேலை நிறுத்தம் இந்திய நாட்டின் மிகப்பெரும்  11 மையத் தொழிற்சங்கங்களான  INTUC , AITUC , HMS, CITU, LPF  உள்ளிட்ட தொழிற்சங்கங்களால் அறிவிக்கப்பட்டு  நடத்தப்படும் வேலை நிறுத்தம் ஆகும். 

இதில் ரயில்வே , பாதுகாப்புத் துறை தவிர்த்து அனைத்து மத்திய அரசு , மாநில அரசு, பொதுத்துறை  மற்றும் அமைப்பு சாரா  தொழிற் சங்கங்கள் கலந்து கொண்டு , மத்திய அரசின் பொருளாதாரக் கொள்கைகள் , தனியார் மயம், மத்திய அரசு, மாநில அரசு மற்றும் பொதுத் துறைகளில் அந்நிய நேரடி முதலீடு அனுமதிக்கப்படுவது, தொழிலாளர் நலச்  சட்டங்கள் திருத்தப்படுவது  இவற்றிற்கு எதிராக நடத்தப்படும் போராட்டம் ஆகும். 

இந்தப் போராட்டம் என்பது ஆண்டுக்கு  ஆண்டு அரசின் கொள்கைகளுக்கு எதிராக வலுப்பெற்று வருகிறது. கடந்த ஆண்டு சுமார் 15 கோடி உழைக்கும் வர்க்கம் கலந்துகொண்ட  வேலை நிறுத்தம் , இந்த ஆண்டு  மேலும் வலுப்பெற்று 20 கோடி தொழிலாளர்கள் பங்கு பெரும் வேலை நிறுத்தமாக உருவெடுத்து வருகிறது. 

இதனால் மத்திய அரசு ஊழியர்களை திருப்திப் படுத்திட , மத்திய அரசு புதிய ஓய்வூதியத் திட்டத்தில்  DCRG  வழங்கப்படும் என்ற முடிவையும் , போனஸ் உச்சவரம்பு உயர்த்தி வழங்கப்படும் என்ற முடிவையும் அதிரடியாக  அறிவித்துள்ளது. 

இது நமது போராட்ட அறிவிப்பிற்கு மற்றும் தயாரிப்புக்கு கிடைத்த வெற்றியாகும். அனைத்து தொழிலாளர்களுடன் இணைந்து   செப். 2, 2016 வேலை நிறுத்தத்தில் கலந்துகொள்ள மத்திய அரசு ஊழியர் சங்கங்கள் எடுத்த முடிவுக்கு கிடைத்த வெற்றியாகும். எனவே இந்த வெற்றிச் செய்தியை ஊழியர்களுக்கு சரியாக எடுத்துச் செல்லுங்கள். செப். 2, 2016 வேலை நிறுத்தத்தை மேலும் வலிமைப்படுத்தி வெற்றிகரமாக ஆக்குங்கள் !

Cabinet approves Implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission

Cabinet approves Implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission 

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the implementation of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) on pay and pensionary benefits.   It will come into effect from 01.01.2016.
In the past, the employees had to wait for 19 months for the implementation of the Commission’s recommendations at the time of 5th CPC, and for 32 months at the time of implementation of 6th CPC.  However, this time, 7th CPC recommendations are being implemented within 6 months from the due date.
The Cabinet has also decided that arrears of pay and pensionary benefits will be paid during the current financial year (2016-17) itself, unlike in the past when parts of arrears were paid in the next financial year. 
The recommendations will benefit over 1 crore employees. This includes over 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners, of which 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensioners are from the defence forces.
Highlights:
1.            The present system of Pay Bands and Grade Pay has been dispensed with and a new Pay Matrix as recommended by the Commission has been approved. The status of the employee, hitherto determined by grade pay, will now be determined by the level in the Pay Matrix. Separate Pay Matrices have been drawn up for Civilians, Defence Personnel and for Military Nursing Service. The principle and rationale behind these matrices are the same.
2.            All existing levels have been subsumed in the new structure; no new levels have been introduced nor has any level been dispensed with. Index of Rationalisation has been approved for arriving at minimum pay in each Level of the Pay Matrix depending upon the increasing role, responsibility and accountability at each step in the hierarchy.
3.            The minimum pay has been increased from Rs.  7000 to 18000 p.m.  Starting salary of a newly recruited employee at lowest level will now be Rs.  18000 whereas for a freshly recruited Class I officer, it will be Rs.  56100.  This reflects a compression ratio of 1:3.12 signifying that pay of a Class I officer on direct recruitment will be three times the pay of an entrant at lowest level.
4.            For the purpose of revision of pay and pension, a fitment factor of 2.57 will be applied across all Levels in the Pay Matrices.
5.            Rate of increment has been retained at 3 %. This will benefit the employees in future on account of higher basic pay as the annual increments that they earn in future will be 2.57 times than at present.
6.            The Cabinet approved further improvements in the Defence Pay Matrix by enhancing Index of Rationalisation for Level 13A (Brigadier) and providing for additional stages in Level 12A (Lieutenant Colonel), 13 (Colonel) and 13A (Brigadier) in order to bring parity with Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) counterparts at the maximum of the respective Levels.
7.            Some other decisions impacting the employees including Defence & Combined Armed Police Forces (CAPF) personnel include :
·               Gratuity ceiling enhanced from Rs.  10 to 20 lakh. The ceiling on gratuity will increase by 25 % whenever DA rises by 50 %.
·               A common regime for payment of Ex-gratia lump sum compensation for civil and defence forces personnel payable to Next of Kin with the existing rates enhanced from Rs. 10-20 lakh to 25-45 lakh for different categories.
·               Rates of Military Service Pay revised from Rs.  1000, 2000, 4200 & 6000 to 3600, 5200, 10800 & 15500 respectively for various categories of Defence Forces personnel.
·               Terminal gratuity equivalent of 10.5 months of reckonable emoluments for Short Service Commissioned Officers who will be allowed to exit Armed Forces any time between 7 and 10 years of service.
·               Hospital Leave, Special Disability Leave and Sick Leave subsumed into a composite new Leave named ‘Work Related Illness and Injury Leave’ (WRIIL). Full pay and allowances will be granted to all employees during the entire period of hospitalization on account of WRIIL.
8.            The Cabinet also approved the recommendation of the Commission to enhance the ceiling of House Building Advance from Rs.  7.50 lakh to 25 lakh. In order to ensure that no hardship is caused to employees, four interest free advances namely Advances for Medical Treatment, TA on tour/transfer, TA for family of deceased employees and LTC have been retained. All other interest free advances have been abolished.
9.            The Cabinet also decided not to accept the steep hike in monthly contribution towards Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS) recommended by the Commission. The existing rates of monthly contribution will continue. This will increase the take home salary of employees at lower levels by Rs. 1470. However, considering the need for social security of employees, the Cabinet has asked Ministry of Finance to work out a customized group insurance scheme for Central Government Employees with low premium and high risk cover.
10.        The general recommendations of the Commission on pension and related benefits have been approved by the Cabinet. Both the options recommended by the Commission as regards pension revision have been accepted subject to feasibility of their implementation. Revision of pension using the second option based on fitment factor of 2.57 shall be implemented immediately. A Committee is being constituted to address the implementation issues anticipated in the first formulation. The first formulation may be made applicable if its implementation is found feasible after examination by proposed Committee which is to submit its Report within 4 months.
11.        The Commission examined a total of 196 existing Allowances and, by way of rationalization, recommended abolition of 51 Allowances and subsuming of 37 Allowances. Given the significant changes in the existing provisions for Allowances which may have wide ranging implications, the Cabinet decided to constitute a Committee headed by Finance Secretary for further examination of the recommendations of 7th CPC on Allowances.  The Committee will complete its work in a time bound manner and submit its reports within a period of 4 months. Till a final decision, all existing Allowances will continue to be paid at the existing rates.
12.        The Cabinet also decided to constitute two separate Committees (i) to suggest measures for streamlining the implementation of National Pension System (NPS) and (ii) to look into anomalies likely to arise out of implementation of the Commission’s Report.
13.        Apart from the pay, pension and other recommendations approved by the Cabinet, it was decided that the concerned Ministries may examine the issues that are administrative in nature, individual post/ cadre specific and issues in which the Commission has not been able to arrive at a consensus.
14.        As estimated by the 7th CPC, the additional financial impact on account of implementation of all its recommendations in 2016-17 will be Rs. 1,02,100 crore. There will be an additional implication of Rs. 12,133 crore on account of payments of arrears of pay and pension for two months of 2015-16.

India Post payments bank’s first chief may be an SBI executive

India Post payments bank’s first chief may be an SBI executive


NEW DELHI: India Post Payments Bank, which is in a hurry to appoint a head, could get its first chief executive officer from the country’s largest lender State Bank of India (SBI).
The bank’s board comprising the CEO, chairperson, besides government nominees and five independent directors is expected to be in place by September.
India Post had written to top five government banks including SBI, Punjab National Bank and Bank of Baroda among others in identifying the chief.
Sources said that SBI chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya has already responded and proposed a name. However, at a later stage, the payments bank is likely to have a search and select committee in place for the appointment of a CEO.
“We are in a hurry to put everything in place as soon as possible, we sought suggestions from the top public sector banks to help us in finding a CEO,” SK Sinha, secretary, department of post, told HT.
The government set aside an initial corpus of ₹ 800 crore for the bank. While the bank will roll out 650 bank branches by September 2017, it will also use the 154,000 existing post offices to sell a host of its products and the new bank could hire about 2,000 people

India Post seeks services of students, unemployed for delivering goods

India Post seeks services of students, unemployed for delivering goods

India Post issues orders under which it can hire third-party persons to pick up and deliver articles from post offices, with a 12% commission for every delivery

New Delhi: With online orders piling up, India Post is hiring students and the jobless to deliver goods, S.K. Sinha, secretary at the department of post, said on Thursday.
The department recently issued orders under which it can hire third-party persons, such as unemployed people and students, to pick up and deliver articles from post offices, with a 12% commission for every delivery.
“If you pick up about 10 orders of about 1 kg, you can earn Rs100-250 per day,” said Sinha, adding that the programme will also help generate employment. There’s an upper limit for how much commission you can earn.
The outsourcing will augment its parcel service and bring it at par with other private parcel services that offer to pick up orders from the customer’s location.
The postal department’s revenue from COD (cash on delivery) consignments from e-commerce majors surged toRs.1,300 crore in the year ending March 2016, up from Rs.500 crore in 2014-15, and just Rs.100 crore in 2013-14.
E-commerce firms availing India Post’s services include all the major online portals such as Amazon India, Flipkart as well as Snapdeal.
The requirements to register for the program is an identification proof and reference from two prominent person known to the post office, after which the third party will be given a licence to deliver and pick up articles.
With e-commerce and financial services expected to take off, the department is expecting earnings from these services to help break even in the next 6-7 years.
India Post recorded a deficit of about Rs.6,000 crore for fiscal year 2015, a 14.4% increase from a year earlier.
The department is also looking at revenue from its online service, e-post office, which sells philately products as well as the newly launched bottled Gangajal, water from the river Ganga.
There is strong demand for Gangajal with almost all the stock sold out, added Sinha.
India Post has sold at least 4,000 bottles of Gangajal, considered holy by Hindus, from its post offices and online and has witnessed strong demand from southern states such as Tamil Nadu.
“While India Post doesn’t generate any profit from the Gangajal program, it does create a lot of goodwill for the department, which in turn can help attract users for its speed post and banking services,” Sinha said.

DEFERRING OF THE INDEFINITE STRIKE – CLARIFICATIONS BY COM. M. KRISHNAN, SEC.GENL., CONFEDERATION

M. Krishnan, Secretary General,
Confederation of C. G. Employees & Workers

Dear Comrades,

We are in receipt of messages and emails from our grass root leaders and workers conveying their concerns over the decision of NJCA to defer the indefinite strike. Comments are circulated in other social medias like whats app etc. also. As it is not practically possible to reply to all the queries and comments, to put the record straight, we are clarifying below the common points raised by most of our comrades and well-wishers. We sincerely thank all those leaders, comrades and well-wishers, who have conveyed (and still conveying) their views, opinions, criticisms and concerns to the confederation CHQ.

1.      CONVEYING THE DEFERMENT OF THE STRIKE EVEN BEFORE THE NJCA FORMALLY ANNOUNCED IT:

NJCA has taken serious note of this incident and shall take precautionary measures in future.

2.      WHETHER IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CABINET DECISION ON 7TH CPC RECOMMENDATIONS WILL BE DELAYED FURTHER FOR FOUR MONTHS

The question of keeping in abeyance the implementation of the Cabinet decision on 29th June 2016 regarding 7thCPC recommendations, till the High Level Committee submits its report to Govt, was discussed in the NJCA meeting. It is decided that NJCA should not demand it, as the employees may be put to hardship, especially those who are in the verge of retirement. Com Shiv Gopal Misra, Convenor, NJCA has confirmed from the Finance Ministry that Govt notification on 7th CPC recommendations is under process and it will be issued shortly, payment may be made from August salary.

3.      WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EMPOWERED COMMITTEE CONSTITUTED EARLIER AND THE NEW HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE?

The new High Level Committee is the product of the discussion held by Group of Ministers including Home Minister, Finance Minister and Railway Minister with NJCA leaders after announcement of the Cabinet decision, in the wake of an impending indefinite strike. Govt is compelled to appoint the new Committee, as the decision taken by the Govt on the proposals submitted by the Empowered Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary (details of proposals of ECoS is not known to staff side) is not acceptable to the NJCA. Hence the new Committee shall be to reconsider the decision of the Govt. especially regarding minimum wage and fitment formula. Inspite of the assurance of the Groups of Ministers that the Committee is being constituted to reconsider the Govt. decision, if the Govt. again reject our demand, the NJCA have to reconsider its stand and deferred strike shall be revived.

4.      POSITION REGARDING ALLOWANCES

All allowances including HRA, transport allowance, fixed medical allowance to pensioners etc. are referred to a committee headed by Finance Secretary. Committee shall submit its report within four months. Pending final decision based on the report of the Committee, all existing allowances to be paid as per the existing rates in existing pay structure. Govt. may try to deny arrears of revised rate of allowances by implementing it from prospective date as in the past. This issue will be further discussed by the NJCA with the proposed Committee.

5.      WE WOULD HAVE GOT A BETTER SETTLEMENT IF NJCA HAS GONE AHEAD WITH THE INDEFINITE STRIKE

All of us are aware that NJCA is not a monolithic, composite organization. It is a united forum of independent organisation. Each Federation has its own identity and individuality and take decision as per the direction of the managing bodies of each organization. Hence different views may emerge in the NJCA, but final decision is taken by consensus. If each organization stick on to its own stand and others to follow it, there is no question of consensus and NJCA will not exist.

With all its inherent weakness and limitations, the NJCA has successfully challenged the NDA Govt’s stand that there is no negotiation with the staff side on the 7th CPC recommendations. Govt. thought that once the Cabinet decision is announced unilaterally, followed by unleashing of well-orchestrated media propaganda that big bonanza is given for Central Govt. Employees, the NJCA will be forced to withdraw its indefinite strike decision. But the calculation of the Govt went wrong. NJCA took a firm stand that unless and until the retrograde recommendations especially minimum wage and fitment formula is modified, there is no question of withdrawing the strike. All the Federations are firm on this demand which ultimately compelled the Hon’ble Prime Minister to intervene. (NJCA has written to Hon’ble Prime Minister for intervention even before the Cabinet decision, but the Govt. ignored the NJCA’s appeal at that time). As per the direction of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Hon’ble Home Minister Sri Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Sri Arun Jaitly and Railway Minister Sri Suresh Prabhu discussed the main issues raised in the Charter of demands with NJCA leaders, and assured that Govt. will appoint a High Level Committee to reconsider the decision of the Govt., especially on minimum pay and fitment formula. This assurance was given with the approval of Hon’ble Prime Minster.

Inspite of it, the NJCA has not deferred the strike and insisted written confirmation of the assurance regarding constitution of High Level Committee. Again Hon’ble Home Minister Sri Rajnath Singh called the NJCA leaders and reiterated the earlier assurances and informed that the Finance Minister will issue a press statement confirming the assurance given to NJCA. Only after receipt of the copy of the press statement issued by the Finance Ministry, NJCA has deferred the strike till the finalization of the report of High Level Committee.

As the Hon’ble Prime Minister of  our country has intervened and as three Cabinet Ministers of Govt. of India discussed the demands with NJCA leaders and gave assurance that the demands, especially minimum pay and fitment formula will be reconsidered, and as the Home Minister has again reiterated the assurances to NJCA leaders and Finance Minster has issued press statement confirming the constitution of High Level Committee, the NJCA felt that before embarking upon an indefinite strike which is the last weapon in the hands of the workers, we should give time to the Govt. to implement the Minister’s assurances given as per the direction of the Prime Minister and honour its commitment given to NJCA leaders. NJCA taking a stand that we don’t believe the Ministers and their assurance and shall go ahead with the strike, may not be taken in good spirit by the general public and the media. In case the Govt. backs out from its assurances, the NJCA has got every right to revive the deferred indefinite strike.

Com. Shiva Gopal Mishra, Convenor, NJCA has made it clear in the circular issued on 7th July 2016, which reads as follows: -

Though there is positive assurance from the Govt. of India, but all of you will not take rest and assume counseling the cadre and ground staff that they should remain in full preparedness, because if there will not be SATISFACTORY OUTCOME, we will be having no alternative except to agitate the issues again.”

6.      WHAT ABOUT PARITY IN PENSION? WILL IT BE IMPLEMENTED AS THERE IS A CLAUSE IN THE GOVT DECISION THAT THE PROPOSED COMMITTEE WILL EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OPTION No I, ie PARITY IN PENSION TO PAST PENSIONERS

This issue was raised before the Group of Minister by Com. K. K. N. Kutty, who is also the Secretary General of NCCPA (National Co-ordination Committee of Pensioners Associations). It was pointed out to the Finance Minister that even though the Govt. has decided to accept 7th CPC recommendation to have two options to pensioners, it is qualified with the words “subject to feasibility.” The Finance Minister categorically assured the delegation that the Govt. has accepted the recommendations in toto and the Pension Department has only been asked to sort out the difficulties in implementation of the Option-No-I, if any.

7.      WHAT ABOUR DEMANDS OF THE GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS, AS NJCA IS MORE CONCERNED WITH MINIMUM PAY FITMENT FORMULA ONLY

Any increase in the minimum pay and fitment formula for departmental employees (MTS, Postman & PA) will be extended to Gramin Dak Sevaks also proportionately as the GDS Pay Scales are decided based on the pay scales of corresponding category of departmental employees. So, the demand to increase minimum pay and fitment formula of MTS, Postman and PA is equally important for GDS also.

As regards, civil servant status the NJCA has raised this demand before the Govt and 7th CPC. Even though the 7th CPC Chairman, Retired Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur has informed the JCM staff side leaders he will not consider the GDS case as they are not included in the terms of reference of the Commission, the Chairman gave a very damaging recommendation to the Govt. that GDS are not Civil Servants but they are part – time employees and Extra-departmental agents. He further stated that all the GDS are having another main independent income from another source and GDS job is only a side-business. NJCA leaders have raised the issue of GDS before the Cabinet Secretary’s Committee and also before the Group of Ministers. We shall again raise the issue before the proposed high level committee also. Govt. has constituted a separate committee for GDS under the Chairmanship of Retired Postal Board Member Sri Kamalesh Chandra. NFPE, AIPEU-GDS and Confederation has submitted detailed memorandum before the Committee and Secretary General NFPE Com. R. N Parashar, General Secretary AIPEU-GDS Com, P. Panduranga Rao along with other leaders has given evidence before the GDS Committee demanding Civil Servant status. The GDS committee will submit its report before December 2016. Further NFPE and AIPEU-GDS has filed a case in the Supreme Court for grant of Civil Servant status. Supreme Court has transferred the case to Delhi High Court which in turn transferred it to Principal Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal, Delhi. The final argument of the case will take place on 25th July 2016. NJCA, Confederation, NFPE and AIPEU – GDS are jointly trying their level best to get justice to three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal Department. If the GDS Committee report is against the GDS, then definitely NJCA and Confederation will be fully supporting the agitational programmes of NFPE & AIPEU-GDS including indefinite strike.

The main hurdle is the policy of the NDA Govt. as the Communication Minister of NDA Govt. has rejected our demand for grant of Civil Servant status to GDS.
