Cadre review cleared by group of ministers

Cadre review cleared by group of ministers

Paving the way for launching a massive recruitment drive to hire around 19,000 tax officials across the country in the next couple of years, the group of ministers on cadre restructuring of income tax department on Monday gave its nod to the proposal of substantially increasing the strength of revenue officials.

These recruitments will take place in a phased manner. While 800 of them will be recruited as Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officers in Group A, remaining over 18,000 will be employed as Group B and Group C officials.

"The proposal will now go to the Cabinet. The recruitment drive will be launched after getting Cabinet approval," an official said.

Sources said the GoM — comprising finance minister P Chidambaram, home minister Sushilkumar Shinde, environment and forests minister Jayanthi Natarajan and minister of personnel V Narayanasamy – also decided to extend the rank and pay of special secretaries to chief commissioners of large income tax zones and to chiefs of various directorates under the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT).

It is learnt that the group of ministers gave its nod to increase the strength of IRS and other income tax officials despite opposition to it from Narayanasamy who argued that other departments may ask for increasing the strength of their respective cadres once the government allows it for income tax department.

The proposal was, however, cleared when the finance minister convincingly spoke on the merit of the decision. Ministers, during a brief meeting, agreed that the move will significantly increase the efficiency of tax administration at the time when the government is committed to increase its tax collection besides providing better and faster delivery of services.

The finance minister is learnt to have dismissed the argument that creating a higher number of senior positions would lead to problems pointing out that even states such as Andhra Pradesh had several chief secretary rank officials and there were more director general of police in place than the number of states. He noted that his ministry was going to undertake a restructuring of roles of the officials in order to ensure a greater mopping up of taxes.

It was pointed out in the meeting that the move would not only help tax payers in getting quicker refunds, but would also detect the high net worth individuals who, at times, either escape the tax net or just end up under-paying taxes.

Govt reply on CAPF's demands regarding One Rank One Pension and Ex-Servicemen Status

Govt reply on CAPF's demands regarding One Rank One Pension and Ex-Servicemen Status

Since, Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) personnel retire only on attaining the age of 57/60 years, no further employment benefits are justifiable. The CAPF personnel are entitled for pension and other pensionary benefits as per Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, which are different from the pension rules applicable to Ex-servicemen. Therefore, one rank–one pension is not applicable in case of CAPFs.

The Government has approved a proposal on 1.11.2012 to declare the retired Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) personnel from Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) as Ex-Central Armed Police Force personnel (Ex-CAPF personnel). The status “Ex-CAPF” is quite distinct from “Ex-Servicemen” of Defence Forces. Based on such designation of Ex-CAPF personnel, the State/UT Governments concerned can extend benefits to them similar to those being extended to the Ex-Servicemen.

A) ATR ON LAST MEETING HELD ON 18.10.2012
AIKVTA (A)

S.N.Points Submitted by AIKVTADecision of JCMATRDecision on 21.02.2013.
3.Reduction of work load on teachers by reducing (restoring) the weekly number of periods to 30/33/36 for PGT/TGT/PRT as well as fixing the teacher student ratio at 1:25The President of AIKVTA put forth the demand of association of re-storing the periods to 30/33/36. After due deliberation it was decided that Commissioner, KVS will constitute a committee which will examine the matter. The Committee will submit its report within the perview of RTE 2009, within 03 months, from the date of circulation of the minutes.The matter was taken up with BOG in its 94th meeting held on 28.12.2012 through Finance Committee, KVS. Which deliberated that Sangathan should examine the proposal in greater detail taking into account the pupil teacher ratio and place in the next Finance Committee meeting for its consideration.The Chairperson JCM was of the view that the matter may be reviewed in the next meeting.
4.Special recruitments for NE region and Hard and Very Hard Stations.The Commissioner, KVS informed the council that for the purpose of ensuring availability of teaching and non teaching staff in Kendriya Vidyalayas located in NE Region and Hard/Vary hard stations, KVS is already considering the proposal for Zonal recruitments although with all India transfer liability. Hence resolved.Commissioner has constituted three member committee headed by Additional Commissioner(Admn.) as Chairman and Additional Commissioner (Acad) and Jt. Commissioner( Admn) as member of the Committee. The Committee in its recommendations suggested that campus recruitment to the post of PGT from Central Universities of North Eastern regions approved by the BOG in its meeting held on 30.8.2011 may not be adopted and be referred back to BOG for its consideration and withdrawl as the scheme is not as per the existing recruitment rules and there is no dearth of candidates applying for the post of PGT without B.Ed. The Board of Governors in its 94th meeting held on 28.12.2012 has approved the recommendations of the committee to withdraw the scheme of campus interview from North East Universities for the post of PGT.After due deliberation the matter was dropped.
5.Reintroduction of transfers against no taker vacancy and mutual transfers.The Commissioner, KVS inform that KVS is already issuing transfers within the framed guidelines which are flexible and has not banned transfer against no taker vacancy. However, the needy/genuine cases are being accommodated against available vacancies. As regards to KVS spouse cases the matter will be reviewed as per the requirement as situation arise from time to time. However mutual transfers are not feasible for administrative convenience.The Committee constituted for the purpose has examined the issue and recommended that transfer against “No Taker Vacancy” may not be re-introduced in the overall interest of the Organization.After due deliberation the matter was dropped.
6.Teacher’s representations on Academic Advisory Committee.Although it was stressed that there is no need of introduction of teacher representative in Academic Advisory Committee, the Chairperson was of the view that KVS may explore the possibility for teachers representation in AAC apart from Principal. The Commissioner, KVS may constitute a Committee which will submit its report within 03 months from the date of circulation of the minutes.The Committee was of the opinion that the Principal as a member of AAC has been incorporated/nominated as a teacher representative.In view of recommendation of Committee constituted for the purpose the matter stands dropped.
7.Sanction of post of Sub-Staff for Vidyalaya Library & Computer Laboratory.Will be reviewed in the next meeting.The proposal to have one library assistant in KVs having 03 sections and above is under consideration.
The post to be created in any case are to be approved by Academic Advisory Committee, Finance Committee and finally by BOG. This is further subject to approval of Ministry of HRD being financial implication.
The outcome will be reviewed in the next meeting of JCM.

AIKVTA (B)
1.Restoration of AIKVTA representation on KVS BOG:-
After persistant struggle for years, AIKVTA was representated on KVS BOG in the 80ths but subsequently it was withdrawn during early 90s.Similarly AIKVTA representation on KVS granted in 2003 was again withdrawn in 2004. HRD standing committee( DEPARTMENT RELATED PARLIAMENTARY STANDING COMMITTEE ON HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT, HUNDRED SIXTY- SECOND REPORT ON FUNCTIONING OF KENDRIYA VIDYALAYAS) (PRESENTED TO THE RAJYA SABHA ON 28TH APRIL,2005)recommended for representation of Teachers Association on KVS BOG for better functioning of KVS which is yet to be implemented. AIKVTA is the only recognized Association representing KV Teachers hence deserves representation on KVS Board of Governors.
After due deliberation the Chairperson was of the view that although the JCM is the right platform to contribute for the welfare of staff as well as organization. The possibility may be explored whether the teachers representation is required in BOG.The Committee was of the view that the order service associations may also demand for inclusion of their representatives in BOG. Inclusion of the representatives of service associations will turn of JCM. Thus, defeating the purpose of JCM and the existing JCM would be left with least relevance. In the composition of BOG ample representation has been provided to the educationist. It would not be desirable to substitute the educationists by the service associations representatives.After deliberation at length and considering the views from both sides the matter stands dropped.
3.Review and formulation of a reasonably lasting Transfer policy that conform to GOI guide lines:-
KVS transfer policy changed about four times during last ten years. This it self shows that there is no policy guiding the transfer of personnel in KVS. That apart KVS often ignores the DOPT guidelines on transfer policies. Teachers including ladies and other spouse cases are worst victims of the existing transfer policy alongwith the teachers serving in Had/Very Hard stations who could not be transferred to their choice stations in spite of completion of defined tenure in hard stations. Even in fixing the tenure in hard stations and very hard stations KVS ignored the criteria fixed by DOPT (GOI). There have been scores of instances where ladies including spouse cases have been transferred to NE Region and Naxal infested area without any concern for their safety and difficulty.
The transfer policy is corollary to recruitment policy. KVS should take the leaf out of recruitment policy of NVS where attempts have been made recruit teachers on state/region basis, thus minimizing the requirement of inter- region transfers. The letter from NVS that streamlined the recruitment policy which in turn reduced the transferability of teachers is given below
The Staff side raised the issue that about 25% of spouses are not getting the desired place of posting hence not satisfied with the transfers made by KVS. In reply KVS informed that the transfer policy is safely transparent. All such spouse cases have been considered and adjusted as far as possible. Since certain special provisions are available in KVS transfer policy, such individual case shall be considered on receipt of representation. More so as regard to tenure of employees in North East and Hard and Very Hard Stations the staff side insisted that there is tenure of posting of two years in Govt. Departments instead of three years as is in KVS, who have been transferred to these stations after 10 years of service. The Staff side was directed to produce the copy of Government of India’s order in this regard to KVS to re-look into such cases.Copy of GOI order has not yet been received from the staff side. Hence, no action could be taken.The association side was once again advised to provide relevant GOI orders to KVS for further examination. The matter will be reviewed in the next meeting.
4.Restoration of 10 days Earned eave along with 20 days half pay leave for teachers:-
GOI has restored the provision of 20 days Half Pay Leave p.a for teachers (Who are vocational staff) as per recommendations of 6th CPC. However, simultaneously the earlier provision of 10 days Earned Leave p.a has been withdrawn. This has terminated a facility granted to teachers after long struggle. 10 days E.L should be granted to KV teachers along with 20 days HPL as per recommendations of 6 CPC or at least it should be restored as was earlier to 6th CPC.
The order is issued based on recommendations of 6th Pay Commission; hence the demand for restoration of 10 days Earned Leave in addition to 20 days HPL was not accepted.Clarification to All DC KVS Regional Offices has been issued vide lette No. F.11046/15/2011- KVSHQ (Estt-II) dated 14.02.2013.Discussed & dropped.
5.Introduction of 5 days week in KVS:-
5 days week should also be implemented in KVs which may give space for students to pursue self learning as per their aptitude and interest. Keeping them bound to school routine six days a week is determined to their natural growth of talent in various fields. While Western system of Education is quoted and applauded in ways, this important aspect of giving autonomy to students to pursue their hobbies and interests away from Vidyalaya binding is overlooked. In the interest of over burdened KV teachers also 5 day week should be introduced in Vidyalayas as has been in force for KVS HQ and Regional offices.
In view of implementation of RTE 2009 it is not possible at present. However, the matter regarding working hours is already sub- judice. The Presidents, AIKVTA informed that there are so many other institutions who are observing 05 days week. The Chairperson, JCM directed him to submit the details with supporting documents of such institutions who are imparting the school education, observing 05 days week.No such documents are committed in the last meeting are provided by the association side.
The matter was taken put up by AAC on 19.05.2011 but did not approve, and defer the matter to examine the same in the light of provisions of RTE Act.
After due deliberation the matter was dropped.
6.Review of departmental promotion policy for teaching cadre, with AIKVTA representation on any such review committee:-
Departmental promotion for teachers in KVS is a myth, not available to senior teacher even with 15 to 20 years of experience in the Grade. The reason being the introduction of selection promotion policy in place of non selection promotion policy which was in force earlier. We do not have problem with selection promotion policy as long as the tests conducted to evaluate the suitability of teachers in the higher post is limited to a qualifying cut marks rather than a as per merit list position. Written test may serve the limited purpose of evaluating the content knowledge of the examinees but can not evaluate the teaching techniques and effectiveness of teaching in a class room situation. Senior teachers by virtue of their experience prove to be better teachers than “more informed on content” teachers. Hence promotion policy should be modified to accommodate both the experience and content knowledge by fixing a suitable cut mark in the tests so that those who clear that cut marks may get promotion as per seniority. Even if KVS might have undertaken some review of promotion policy, but AIKVTA was not invited to put forth its views before it. Hence, KVS should reconsider review of promotion policy in the light of AIKVTA view points & with AIKVTA participation in any such endeavour.
After due deliberation it has been decided that the association (AIKVTA) will submit a detailed proposal separately within 30 days from the date of receipt of the minutes for further examination of KVS.The detailed proposal is still awaited from association side for further examination.The association was once again advised to submit a detailed proposal supported by relevant GOI orders to KVS for further examination.
7.Promotional avenues for TGTs(WET/ PET/ARTS/Sans) & Librarian by introducing additional subjects in + 2 Classess and TGT grade to Music Teachers:-
TGTs
(W.E.T,P.E.T,ART) and Librarians do not have promotional avenues and KVS should introduce additional elective subjects at plus to level in those subjects to facilitate creation of PGT posts and facilitate promotion of those teachers.
Music teachers are the most neglected of the staff serving the Kendriya Vidyalayas. The essential qualification prescribed for recruitment to the post of Music Teacher corresponds to TGTs, but they are given PRT post. They train secondary and higher secondary students for all sorts of cultural functions held in the Vidyalaya, for Social Science exhibitions, Annual day celebration, to welcome and entertain VIPs visiting the Vidyalayas apart from taking regular period in Primary Classess. In NCT Delhi Schools and many other Govt. School they are given TGT grade but KVS put them in Primary Scale. It is not exaggeration of facts if we say the Music Teachers in KVS are illegally exploited, they draw the salary of PRT grade and we are compelled to work with secondary and higher secondary students.
The matter may be reviewed by forming a committee by KVS within 03 months from the date of issue of minutes.The Committee has been constituted vide order dated 15.10.2012 and the issue is being examined. However, such issues are subject to discussion in Acedemic Advisory Committee, finance Committee and recommendations submitted to BOG for consideration/approvalThe recommendations of the Committee will be reviewed in the next meeting.
8.Grant of higher pay scale and providing other incentive to KV teachers as per decision taken in 80th meeting of BOG & Grant of Higher Grade Pay,Rs.4600/- to PRT’s at stage 1 and so on:-
The 80th BOG discussed and unanimously decided to grant Higher pay scale and other incentives to KV teachers who are highly qualified and talented. A committee was also set under the Chairmanship of Vice-Chairman,KVS to examine the proposal for granting higher pay scale and other incentives to KV teachers. This meeting was held on 26-07-2008 and since then no action has been taken to implement the decision to grant higher pay scale and other incentives to KV teachers.
The Primary teachers in KVs have been denied 4600/ grade pay at stage-1 though many other categories of employees were granted higher grade pay of 4600/-. GOI,MOF,Deptt. of Expenditure ,New Delhi vide Memo No.F.No.,-1/1/2008/Lc dated 13 Nov,2009 granted higher grade pay of 4600/- to employees in pay scale of 6500-200-10500 who were granted grade pay of 4200/0 earlier.
Accordingly KVS vide letter No.F.-11081-04/2008-KVS HQ(Admn-1)962 dated 27-07-2010 and letter no. same reference 1102 dated 27-08-2010 granted higher grade pay of 4600/- to Superintendent merged/upgraded to Section Officer in same pay scale of 6500/-. However similarly place PRTs are denied the benefit of higher grade pay.
This is nothing but injustice with our Primary Teachers and KVS should immediately consider the matter of higher grade pay to PRT’s similarly as has been granted to other employees in the pay scale of Rs.6500-200-10500.
The decision of MHRD has already been conveyed to the association. However, the Chairperson, JCM was of the view that the matter may be re-submitted to MHRD for consideration.The MHRD vide its letter dated 11.12.2012 has informed that the matter for further revision of pay scales of teachers has been considered by the competent authority but could not be acceded to as after the implementation of recommendation of 6th Pay Commission, the teachers have already been suitably benefitted.In view of decision of MHRD the matter stands dropped.
9.Extension of CGHS facilities to KV teachers similarly as being extended to KVS(HQ) and KVS(Regional Office,) staff and extension of CGHS facility to KVS employees at par with retired GOI employees:-
Teachers should also be granted CGHS facility as is being provided to KVS HQ and Regional Office Staff. The CGHS benefits available to GOI employees after their retirement should also be available to retired KVS employees as is being extended to NCERT employees.
Although, the staff side and official side were of the view that the CGHS facilities should be extended to all the serving and retired employees of KVS. Since the CGHS authorities have shown their inability in extending the facility for want of infrastructural facilities as such, it was unanimously decided that the matter may be taken up with the Ministry of Health again through MHRD and the progress should be submitted in the next meeting.
Apart from above the Commissioner, KVS was of the view that the Association as well as KVS may explore the possibility of introduction of medi-claim policies being offered by many companies in the respective field, may be from Government Sector or the Private Sector, covering serving and retired employees(Pensioners & Non Pensioners).
The matter was referred to the MHFW through MHRD but MHRD vide letter F.No.3-5/2011-UT-2 dated 1st Jan. 2013 has conveyed the decision of MHWF that they have shown their inability to extend the CGHS facilities to all the (Serving/Retired) employees of KVS due to acute shortage of human resources.
A proposal for health insurance policy is under consideration of the KVS.
The Chairperson desired to examine the prososal(s) received. She also desired to recirculate/reiterate the relevant orders/circular s of the year 2000/2007 for the information of all the employees of KVS.
The matter will be reviewed in the next meeting.

KEVINTSA PART-(C)
S.N.Points submitted by KEVINTSA   
1.Staffing pattern of the non teaching staff in KVs, with particular reference to the decision already arrived at in the meeting held during the year 2000, and staffing pattern of KVS Regional offices.The association will submit a logical fresh proposal for further examination of KVS.The association side did not provide the required information as committed in last meeting.The association side produced the required documents. The matter will be examined by KVS and outcome will be reported in next meeting.
3.Duty allocation of non teaching staff commensurate with the pay scale granted to each category of staff at par with Govt. of India pattern, based on proper work study.After due deliberation it was decided that a committee may be constituted by KVS soon after issue of minutes of the meeting. The Committee will submit its recommendation describing the job chart of non- teaching staff in Vidyalayas at different level of posts.The recommendations of the Committee has been approved by Commissi9oner, KVS and orders regarding distribution of work amongst non-teaching staff were issued vide order dated 15.01.2013.The association side raised objection against work distribution order dated 15.01.2013. The Chairperson, JCM directed the association to submit their views on the said work distribution, to KVS, if any in writing for further examination.
5.Five days week to be observed for all the non-teaching staff working in KVS at par with their counterparts working in KGS, ROs, KVS, ZIETs and HQ.In view of implementation of RTE 2009 it is not possible at present. However, the matter regarding working hours is already sub-judice. The President, AIKVTA informed that there are so many other institutions who are observing 05 days week.
The Chairperson, JCM directed him to submit the details with supporting documents of such institutions who are imparting the school education, observing 05 days week as in the matter of teaching staff.
No such documents as committed in the last meeting are provided by the association side.
The matter was taken put up by AAC on 19.05.2011 but did not approve, and defer the matter to examine the same in the light of provisions of RTE Act.
Further it would not be possible to observe five days week only for non-teaching staff, as their services are very much required when 6 days week is observed as is at present.
After due delebration the matter was dropped.
6.Sub-Staff to be treated as Non-Vocational Staff, as their requirement during vacation and breaks is essential.After due deliberation it was agreed by officials side that the matter will be reconsidered by constituting a Committee for the purpose.The Committee constituted for the purpose did not find it feasible to convert the sub-staff from vacational to non-vacational as the conservancy watch and ward and gardening have already been outsourced.
However, 01 or 02 persons are put on duty during breaks/vacations and they will be compensated by sanction of EL/ compensatory leave as per rules.
The matter was discussed and dropped.
10.Conversion of the few CPF optees to GPF/Pension scheme as has been provided to many categories of staff working in other Central Govt. Departments.The staff side must bring the examples from similar Central Government Departments to strengthen their case. However, the matter is already under consideration by MHRD. The decision thereon may be communicated in due course of time.The matter is already under examination f MHRD/MoF.a) AIKVTA referred to a letter No. FA.11018/15/2001-DFQC dt. 25.02.2009 of Min. Of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India extending the facilities of pension to NIB, a Central Autonomous Organization. The Chairperson desired that the issue may be examined in the light of said circular. B) The association side pointed out that in some cases who were appointed after 01.01.1986 are not treated as GPF beneficiary. The association members informsed that many KVS employees have yet not exercised their options. The Chairperson advised them to submit the list of such employees for examination.
12.Extensions of Infrastructural facilities for proper functioning of Recognized Association at station headquarter of General Secretary/President & Regional Secretary/Regional President.After due deliberation it was recommended by the Chairperson, JCM that KVS may explore the possibility to provide a room where the General Secretary/President of a recognized association is posted, subject to its availability.It has been reported that sufficient space is not available either in Regional Offices or Headquarter. The request of the association shall be considered as and when adequate accommodation is available.The chairperson was of the view that the President/ General-Secretary of the recognized association at Central level be provided infrastructural facilities to the extent possible. Item was dropped.

Points submitted by AIKVTAComments of KVSDecision
1.Quick implementation of MACPs for teachers, Vice-Principal and Principals

21The non-teaching employees be excluded from the purview of Article 81(d) of the Education Code: The BOG of KVS never decided to include NTS in the ambit of Article 81D of Education Code at the time of implementation of that draconian provision.Article 81(d) of Education Code has been introduced in KVS to ensure the presence of employees for smooth functioning of KVS.
By introducing this article unauthorized absence has been put on check and employees do not leave the place of posting without prior approval of competent authority. This has improved the discipline amongst employees and KVS has been able to maintain continuous progress and is considered as roll model in the field of education.
The provisions of Article 81(d) of Education Code are applicable for all category employees of KVS as approved by BOG. Hence the claim of association is in correct.
The Chairperson was of the view that the contention of the association is not correct and the rule is equally applicable to both teaching and non-treaching staff of KVS. Hence item was dropped.
