NMC : PM should appoint 7th Pay Commission

Business Stnadard: Jammu Sunday, June 9, 2013

National Mazdoor Conference today urged Prime Minister to appoint the 7th pay commission at the next cabinet meeting as employees and pensioners will be entitled for pay commission with effect from January 1, 2016.

"We urge the Prime Minister to appoint Chairman and other members of the 7th pay commission and take decision in this regard at the next cabinet meeting and start discussion with representatives of both Central and State governments employees as Central and State governments employees and pensioners will be entitled for pay commission with effect from 1-1-2016", President of the National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) Subash Shastri said today.

He said that the appoint of 7th Pay Commission will end confusion and uncertainty among the employees and pensioners on this issue once for all.

Addressing a one day workers convention at Brahamin Sabha here, Shastri pointed out that except sixth pay commission all earlier pay commissions were constituted in the 3rd year of every decade.

In other words earlier pay commissions except 6th pay commission were formed well before its implementation become due.

"A notification for constitution of the 7th pay commission is the need of the hour, which is bound to have bearing on about one core employees and pensioners, both in Central as well as State governments," NMC Chief added.

Recalling that it was under Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that last pay panel was set up in 2005, after previous government failed to do so in 2003, Shastri requested that decision be "taken on priority for constitution of the pay commission."

"50 per cent of DA should be forthwith merged into basic pay and pension," he said, adding, 20 per cent Interim relief should be sanctioned as early as possible in favour of the employees and pensioners.

Shastri also insisted on the regularisation of daily wagers who have completed seven years of service in Mach 2012, adding their monthly emoluments should be raised to Rs 10,000 per month.

Office Memorandum

Sub: – Software (e-PPO utility) for processing pension cases

1. Optimum utilization of manpower with speed and accuracy has been a thrust from the time immemorial. The revolution in Information Technology has made it possible to overcome it to a greater extent. So far, in Central Pension Accounting Office Special Seal Authorities authorizing the banks for making payments of pensions have been generated after feeding the relevant data manually based on special seal authorities received from different Pay & Accounts Officers. On the basis of this feeding data-base of pensioners is updated in Central Pension Accounting Office.

2. But the manual feeding of data involves engagement of lot of manpower which takes considerable time and leaves scope of clerical errors at the part of Central Pension Accounting Office leading to improper maintenance of Central Pension Accounting Office’s data-base, wastage of manpower, over/under payment and delay in payment.

3. To obviate the above situation and to facilitate PAOs of Central Civil Ministries/ Departments to issue the PPOs electronically of all Govt. Servants retiring from June, 2013 onwards, the 0/o the CGA and Central Pension Accounting Office has developed a software for uploading the e-PPO. The facility for preparation/ generation of text file for Central Pension Accounting Office’s databank is available in the Pension Module of COMPACT.

4. The Pay & Accounts Offices may upload the text file on Central Pension Accounting Office’s website in the following manner:-
Login (using User ID & Password of Annexure-III) —> e-PPO uploading —> PPO upload –> PPO and nominee upload Form 1 A upload file –> submit. The PAOs have to upload both PPO and nominee details.

5. The Other procedure i.e. sending of PPO and hard copy of SSA etc. will remain unchanged. This issues with the approval of Addl. Controller General of Accounts.

Ratio of Promotion in CSS

Ratio of Promotion in CSS

Is there any ratio in which the Promotee Assistants and Direct Recruit Assistants were being promoted to the Section Officer Grade prior to Cadre restructuring undertaken during early 1990s..? and Whether the Committee of Secretaries, while considering Cadre restructuring of CSS, had recommended promotion of Promotee Assistants and Direct Recruit Assistants to the Section Officer Grade in the ratio of 75:25..?

The Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Shri.V.Narayanasamy replied to the above questions in Lok Sabha on 13th March, 2013 as follows:

"No ratio has been prescribed for either Promotee or Direct Recruit category Assistants for promotion to the grade of Section Officer.

Promotions to the grade of Section Officer are made through two streams, viz.,
(i) by seniority and

(ii) by holding Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE). In both the streams, all eligible Assistants, whether direct recruit or promotee are participating.

No such recommendation has been made by Committee of Secretaries".
