Dear Sir

Pension payments to Central / State Government pensioners by Agency banks - Compensation for delay

Please refer to our circular DGBA.GAD.No.H-6212 / 45.01.011 / 2010-11 dated March 11, 2011, on the captioned subject, wherein we had advised the agency banks that all the pensioners, including non-State resident pensioners, would be compensated for delay in credit of pension / revised pension / arrears, for the delayed period beyond the due date at the "Bank Rate plus two per cent" penal interest.

2. Recently the Bank Rate, which was kept unchanged at 6 per cent since April 2003, has been aligned with Marginal Standing Facility (MSF) rate and currently stands at 9.5 %. Henceforth, whenever there is an adjustment to the MSF rate, the Reserve Bank will consider and align the Bank Rate with the revised MSF rate.

3. It has now been decided todelink the penal interest levied for delayed credit of pension / revised pension / arrears, from the Bank Rate plus two per cent, and charge a fixed interest rate of 8 per cent on such delays. This rate will be subject to review by RBI as considered appropriate.

4. You may please issue suitable instructions to your concerned Regional Offices / branches authorized to disburse pension, accordingly.

5. Please acknowledge receipt.
Yours faithfully,

INDWF writes to OF Board regarding restructuring of Ordnance employees (Artisan staff)

INDWF General Secretary Shri.R.Srinivasan writes a letter to DGOF and Chairman of Ordnance Factory Board on 5th July, 2013 regarding the implementation of four grade structure in Ordnance factories to the employees of Industrial cadre. The General Secretary insists to give clear clarification and instructions on exemption for promotions while implementation of 4 Grade structure to all factories immediately.

The letter is reproduced and given below for your ready reference…

RESTRUCTURING OF ARTISAN STAFF EXEMPTION REQUEST

Sub : Restructuring of Artisan Staff.
Ref : OFB Letter No.01/CR/Vol II/A/1/658(Pt.) dt. 14.6.2013

Sir,
OF Board vide their letter quoted under reference addressed to all Sr.GMs/GMs of Ordnance and Ordnance Equipment group of Factories intimated that while implementing the 4 Grade structure in Industrial Cadre as per M of D instruction dt 14.06.2010 only one exemption for one promotion was to be given to the cadre of Industrial Employees, next promotion was to be given after duly conducting Trade Test, after the date of issue of M of D instructions and the promotions may be effected from a prospective date.

In this regard, we would like to convey that the promotions were granted based on the instructions of M of D letter dated 14.6.2010 granting one time exemption but in some Factories, based on the Trade Test conducted where vacancies exists, have been granted promotions by many Factories.

At this belated stage giving clarification and instructing the factories to dispense with the promotions and any action taken to reverse will lead to unrest and it would be better to regularise the promotions as they were already placed.

Kindly review your letter dated 14.6.2013.
Yours Sincerely,

General Secretary
