 Terms of Reference (ToR) for the 7th CPC with the representatives of the Staff Side of JCM

 This information was received by Shri Madhav Bamne, Technical Adviser, AICGPA  through email on 22 November 2013.
A meeting was held on 24.10.2013 at 3.00 PM in Committee Room No 190, North Block under the chairmanship of Dr S.K.Sarkar, Secretary DOP&T to discuss the possible Terms of Reference (ToR) for the 7th Central Pay Commission. Shri Umraomal Purohit, Secretary, Staff Side pointed out that the new concept of Pay Bands and Grade Pay structure has (as per the 6th CPC) had resulted in a new experience which was mixed. However, 6th CPC did not recommend merger of DA with Pay. He also raised the question of Interim Relief pending finalisation of 7th CPC recommendations. He further mentioned that anomalies of 6th CPC should be resolved on priority before 7th CPC and suggested that there must be some machinery which should resolve anomalies within one year of implementation of CPC report. Shri Raghavaiah suggested that the Finance Ministry should look into the aspect of Pay Band-Grade Pay Structure vis a vis anomalies cropped up and how these can be avoided in future. He referred to anomalies relating to MACP scheme vis a vis ACP scheme and pending resolution.
Other representatives from staff side raised following issues:-
1.      Entry level pay to promotee employees at par with that admissible to Direct Recruits as was agreed in the National Anomaly Committee;
2.      One of the ToR should be to set up a special bilateral mechanism to sort out anomalies arising out of Pay Commission recommendations;
3.      Professional approach should be adopted in dealing with peculiarities concerning Railways and Defence civilian employees;
4.      There should be parity between pre & Post CPC retirees for the purpose of pension etc.;
5.      Cadre review/restructuring proposals should be delinked from the 7th CPC so that these are not delayed;
6.      Wage Revision should be effective after every 5 years as in the case of PSUs;
7.      If there is going to be separate CPC for the Armed Forces as had been reported in media, or if there is a representative of Armed Forces in the 7th CPC then there should be a representative of Labour in the  CPC;
8.      CPC should not go by “Central Secretariat” structure to make its recommendations which does not take into account specific complexities in large Government organisations like Railways, Postal Department and Defence establishments.
9.      Allowances should be enhanced concurrently with the pay consequent upon Pay commission implementation.
10. Supreme Court has upheld that MACP should be in the hierarchy of the Post and also for grant of NDA in 7th CPC rates w.e.f. 1/4/2007. These judgments should be implemented to all similarly placed employees.
11. The Secretary Staff side in the end requested that a copy of Terms of Reference as proposed by the Ministry of Finance may be circulated and then another meeting with Secretary, Department of Expenditure and Department of Personnel & Training be arranged to discuss & finalise the Terms of Reference of 7th CPC.
Draft Terms Of Reference 7th CPC by JCM New Delhi
1.      To work out the comprehensive revised pay packet for the categories of Central Government Employees mentioned (A) above as on 1.1.2014.
2.      The Commission will determine the pay structure, benefits facilities, retirement benefits etc. taking into account the need to provide minimum wage with reference to the recommendation of the 15th Indian Labour Conference (1957) and the subsequent judicial pronouncement of the honorable Supreme Court there-on, as on 1.1.2014.
3.      To determine the Interim Relief needed to be sanctioned immediately to the Central Government employees and Pensioners mentioned in (A) above;
4.      To determine the percentage of Dearness allowance/Dearness Relief immediately to be mergedwith Pay andpension
5.      To settle the anomalies raised in various fora of JCM.
6.      To work out the improvements needed to the existing retirement benefits, like pension; death cum retirement gratuity, family pension and other terminal or recurring benefits maintaining parity amongst past, present and future pensioners and family pensioners including those who entered service on or after 1.1.2004.
7.      To recommend methods for providing cashless/hassle-free Medicare facilities to the employees and Pensioners including Postal pensioners.

Information on Paperless Office & VIIth CPC
 
Dear Brothers,
 
All of us are aware about environmental protection. Paper needs cutting of trees. Hence, use of paper must be reduced to preferably zero. Our association should not lag behind as we are part of Indian citizens. In order to achieve this following action is suggested.
 
1.            All branches shall obtain email address on line of address of CHQ i.e. branch name
.aicgpa@gmail.com for Pune branch it shall be pune.aicgpa@gmail.com .
2.            Branches shall contact CHQ using addresses given earlier.
 
3.            Whenever, email is sent to a branch (es) message on mobile phone would be sent so branches can check email.
 
4.            Branches shall register members of association from their respective branch on website. Registration basically needs primary information like full name, address and contact number. Detailed information is not compulsory. In case a member wishes to add detailed information that shall be confidential and can be seen only by those who have password. After registration Name and number be intimated to CHQ. CHQ shall send the password. On receipt of password first action would be change of password and then registering your information. Priority of registration shall be as under:-
a)           President, Secretary and Treasurer.
b)           All Branch working Committee members.
c)            PP Bulletin Subscribers.
d)           All other members.
 
Registration of members shall be completed at the earliest. 4 (a) & (b) should be completed within 4 weeks from receipt of this letter, 4 (c) by 15 December 2013 and 4 (d) by end of the financial year. Branches shall find solution for their problems on their own. Advice if needed may be obtained on telephone.
 
5.            Those who want to place their respective photo they can do so after receipt of password. There is an e-locker facility available to those who are registered on website and received password. Up to 5 scanned documents can be placed in e-locker. These documents may be related to any subject meaning not necessarily related to pension.
 
6.            There are many more facilities on the website. Each and every member of the association can take advantage of all facilities. Those who register on website get additional advantage. It is suggested that more and more members should be encouraged to get email ID. There may be uniformity in email ID like Name of

 member, branch name @gmail.com .More information shall be sent on receipt of email from branches and members.

 Another important point is VIIth Central Pay commission (CPC). There is a useful article on suggested recommendations of CPC. It is available here.
http://janahitwadi.blogspot.in/2013/04/central-pay-commission-for-government.html It is recommended that every pensioner should go through it and suggest additions and deductions so that association’s recommendations could be finalised. In brief the article gives following:-
 
a.      Author has carried out mathematical analysis of the pay band, grade pay and increment rate. It gives 4 pay scales for four groups of government employees. This means there could be only 4 pay scales for entire categories of the government employees.
 
b.      From lowest of Basic pay to highest of basic pay in every pay scale there are 50 steps. All steps are clubbed in groups of 5.
 
c.      CPC would give ranks or stages and every department should give designation and starting pay for a particular post. This means every 1 in the ay scale shall not start at the lowest but at a predetermined level.
 
d.      Increment is based on the lowest basic pay in the block of 5 years. For Group D it is 3%, Group C 2.25%, for Group B 1.65% and for Group A 1%.
 
e.      For promotion suggested rules are when a person reaches the highest level in the block or earlier DPC should be held for selection of an employee for promotion. Every employee shall get 3 chances for promotion. If the employee is not found suitable by all 3 DPCs then a board shall be held to decide on efficiency test. As and when an employee clears this test he/she shall be placed in the higher block but shall hold the same post. This means pay of employee would be protected to some effect.
 
f.        Pension shall be based on the last basic pay drawn or on average of last 10 months pay as existing presently. For those pensioners who retired before date of implementation of the recommendations of the CPC shall undergo notional pay fixation for working out basic pension and family pension.
 
g.      Our recommendations shall be discussed in forthcoming GBM in December 2013 and finalised. All branches and pensioners are requested to study this and bring out changes needed.

Principal Bench CAT, New Delhi: Judgement for Interpretation of Minimum of Pay Band while Fixing Pension for Pre-2006 Pensioners.

Government of India, M of P & PW issued memorandum illustrating method of Pension fixation vide 38/37/08-P&PW(A).Pt.I. dated 3.10.2008 and 14.10. 2008. In this clarification a lower level official interpreted government resolution accepting recommendations of the VIth Pay Commission to the effect lowest of Pay in the Pay Band to Lowest of the Pay Band. As regards serving employees on 1 Jan 2006 got their pay fixed as per the new pay scales in the pay bands considering increments they had earned in the pre-2006 pay scale. Government resolution restricted the Pay for the purpose of fixation of pension to lowest of the pay in the pay band and not lowest of the pay band. Principal Bench of CAT has accepted this and issued judgement which will favour all those pensioners whose minimum of pay in his/her pay scale was higher than the minimum of pay band. Extract of the relevant portion of the judgement is as under:-
Respondents (i.e. Government of India M of P& PW) are directed to refix the pension of all pre-2006 retirees wef 1.1.2006 based on resolution dated 29.08.2008 and pay arrears thereof  within a period of 3 months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order.
CAT had criticised lower functionary in DOP & PW and also placed on records that there is no application of mind even at the level of Director and Secretary. CAT further noted that Director and Secretary merely signed the note after obtaining finance concurrence and approval of MOS (PP) without going back to the Cabinet for modification.
After receipt of copy of the judgement by G of I, M of P & PW is expected to issue orders for estimating revised pension and payment including arrears. Pensioners have to wait for government orders for receipt of payment. It should be noted that the CAT has laid down time frame of 3 months. All pensioners are advice to bring this to the notice of the local Pension Disbursement Agency (PDA) i.e. Bank or Post Office from where pension is received and obtain their view. This should be submitted in writing to the Branch of the Association for further action.
In due course of time a calculator shall be placed on website for calculating estimating revise pension and arrears. All members are advised to make full use of the calculator and ensure that they receive right payment.

 Know About Association's Website

 

 

 The association's official website aicgpa.org was launched on 14th Nov 2007 and was inaugurated by Late Shri Bhalchandra Deshmukh, Ex Honorary Adviser to AICGPA on 13th December 2007. The website was developed by Shri Madhav Bamne, Technical Adviser and was designed and programmed by Shri Sachin Dhake, Website Programmer. The website offers many facilities useful for every pensioner and the office bearers of the association.It contents information on every need, calculators, Storage of important documents and storage of events with photos.The basic information is member's data. There is a locker available ob website for storing important documents like PPO and "Will" in electronic format. Members are not required to pay for this facility. The only requirement is the member should be registered on the website. This is needed to ensure security and to keep it confidential. These can be accessed by the members and his representatives only. Information is available to his/her legal hair only when the member leaves this world. CHQ is of the opinion that we must adapt to changes as had been done in past. Initially all information and letters were hand written. Typewriter was introduced and we started using it. Then cyclostyle machine came in vogue. The only method of communication had been letters and talk in person. We changed to telephonic talk. Landline phones were in vogue. Now mobile phones are extensively used. Tele-conferencing has become normal. We had changed from time to time. Hence, we should keep this spirit and start using electronic way of storing and accessing information. Usually there is misunderstanding that a computer and internet is needed to adapt to electronic method of storing and accessing information. We must remember that persons who didn't know reading and writing were using post offices to send and receive letters. Therefore, computers cannot be treated as and obstacle or excuse.What is necessary is to change ourselves and get adapted to latest technology available.Start can be done by registering each and every member on website and communicating with each other and CHQ through email.It was stressed during last CWC meeting that every branch should have a free email Id available on gmail. The format also was given

 

 

  branchname.aicgpa@gmail.com

 

 

 

 CHQ address is: chq.aicgpa@gmail.com

 

 

 

 All are encouraged to use this facility for fast and secured communication. CHQ shall send message on mobile phone (SMS) as and when email is sent. More next time.

 

 

 

 Yours truly,

Another important point is VIIth Central Pay commission (CPC). There is a useful article on
 
suggested recommendations of CPC. It is available here.
http://janahitwadi.blogspot.in/2013/04/central-pay-commission-for-government.html It is recommended that every pensioner should go through it and suggest additions and deductions so that association’s recommendations could be finalised. In brief the article gives following:-
 
a.      Author has carried out mathematical analysis of the pay band, grade pay and increment rate. It gives 4 pay scales for four groups of government employees. This means there could be only 4 pay scales for entire categories of the government employees.
 
b.      From lowest of Basic pay to highest of basic pay in every pay scale there are 50 steps. All steps are clubbed in groups of 5.
 
c.      CPC would give ranks or stages and every department should give designation and starting pay for a particular post. This means every 1 in the ay scale shall not start at the lowest but at a predetermined level.
 
d.      Increment is based on the lowest basic pay in the block of 5 years. For Group D it is 3%, Group C 2.25%, for Group B 1.65% and for Group A 1%.
 
e.      For promotion suggested rules are when a person reaches the highest level in the block or earlier DPC should be held for selection of an employee for promotion. Every employee shall get 3 chances for promotion. If the employee is not found suitable by all 3 DPCs then a board shall be held to decide on efficiency test. As and when an employee clears this test he/she shall be placed in the higher block but shall hold the same post. This means pay of employee would be protected to some effect.
 
f.        Pension shall be based on the last basic pay drawn or on average of last 10 months pay as existing presently. For those pensioners who retired before date of implementation of the recommendations of the CPC shall undergo notional pay fixation for working out basic pension and family pension.
 
g.      Our recommendations shall be discussed in forthcoming GBM in December 2013 and finalised. All branches and pensioners are requested to study this and bring out changes needed.
