Dear Sir,
At the outset I would like to introduce me as TKR Pillai, General Secretary, All India Association of Administrative Staff (Non Gazetted), Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation, Government of India.  This Association had written a letter to the Hon’ble Prime Minister to apprise him of the pathetic conditions of LDC & UDC working in the Central Government Offices and request his office’s intervention on the matter (Copy enclosed in annexure 2 to VIII). While taking action on the said letter DoPT has identified the LDC/UDC issue as anomaly and the case has been sent to JCA for action (copy enclosed in annexure I).

Earlier, the matter was raised in the National Executive Meeting of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers by the undersigned and according to a decision taken in the meeting Shri S.K. Vyas, President Confederation and Member National JCM & NAC had put up the item in the National Anomaly Committee. Unfortunately, this most important issue has not been taken up for discussion in the forum so far.

1. Why the LDC & UDC case become anomaly?
Sixth Pay Commission has denied an appropriate pay structure to the LDC & UDC of Government of India Offices in the light of raising the academic and technical qualification and responsibilities assigned. The officials in these cadres are initiating the official work and made responsible for smooth functioning of the offices, have been granted a simple replacement grade pays. In fact the Grade Pay granted to the post of LDC is only Rs.1900 which is just Rs.100 more than the grade pay of MTS, i.e. Rs.1800/-.  In the mean time the academic & tech

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus to the Railwaymen for the year 2012-13.

Durga Pooja is the biggest festival of the Eastern part of the country. Durga Puja and Festive Season are approaching very last, and every time we have seen eleventh hour trouble creating lots of frustration and chaos among the Railwaymen. There is rumour in the corridors that, this year Productivity Linked Bonus may be reduced inspite of untiring efforts made by the Railwaymen in increased productivity.

AIRF has achieved PLB for the Railwaymen after lots of struggles and sacrifices. In this connection, it is worth-mentioning that PLB is a bilateral agreement arrived at between the Organized Labour and Ministry of Railways, any tinkering with PLB Formula or any deviation from the inputs will definitely create confrontation

Since AIRF is maintaining very good harmonious industrial relations over the Indian Railways, we hope, nothing will be done to harm the industrial peace.

As per our calculation, Railwaymen must get increased PLB for the year 2012-13 in comparison to last year, since productivity has increased. In case Railway Board think it, otherwise the matter may be discussed, but no means that payment of PLB should be delayed, which may cause serious industrial relation.

Please treat the matter as Most Urgent and arrange the payment of PLB as per formula, already decided.

Yours faithfully,

Eligibility of widowed/divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification reg

Eligibility of widowed/divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification reg
Eligibility of widowed/divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification by Government of India, Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions, Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare:

No.1/13/09-P&PW (E)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare

3rdFloor, Lok Nayak Bhawan,
Khan Market, New Delhi,

OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Sub: Eligibility of widowed/divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification regarding.

Provision for grant of family pension to a widowed/divorced daughter beyond the age of 25 years has been made vide OM dated 30.08.2004. This provision has been included in clause (iii) of sub-rule 54 (6) of the CCS (Pension), Rules, 1972. For settlement of old cases, it was clarified, vide OM dated 28.04.2011, that the family pension may be granted to eligible widowed/divorced daughters with effect from 30.08.2004, in case the death of the Govt. Servant/pensioner occurred before this date.

2. This Department has been receiving communications from various Ministries/Departments seeking clarification regarding eligibility of a daughter who became widowed/divorced after the death of the employee/pensioner.

3. As indicated in Rule 54(8) of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972, the turn of unmarried children below 25 years of age comes after the death or remarriage of their mother/father, i.e., the pensioner and his/her spouse. Thereafter, the family pension is payable to the disabled children for life and then to the unmarried/widowed/divorced daughters above the age of 25 years.

4. It is clarified that the family pension is payable to the children as they are considered to be dependent on the Government servant/pensioner or his/her spouse. A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents. Therefore, only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or hislher spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension. If two or more children are eligible for family pension at that time, family pension will be payable to
each child on hislher turn provided he/she is still eligible for family pension when the turn comes. Similarly, family pension to a widowed/divorced daughter is payable provided she fulfils all eligibility conditions at the time of death/ineligibility of her parents and on the date her turn to receive family pension comes.

5. As regards opening of old cases, a daughter if eligible, as explained in the preceding paragraph, may be granted family pension with effect from 30th August, 2004. The position is illustrated through an example. Shri A, a pensioner, died in 1986. He was survived by his wife, Smt. B, a son Shri C and a daughter, Kumari D, the daughter being the younger. Kumari D married in 1990 and got widowed in 1996. Smt. B died in 2001. Thereafter, Shri C was getting family pension, being disabled, and died in 2003. Thereafter, the family pension was stopped as Kumari D was not eligible for it at that time. She applied for family pension on the basis of O.M., dated 30th August, 2004. Since she was a widow and had no independent source of income at the time of death of her mother and on the date her turn came, she may be granted family pension. The family pension will continue only till she remarries or starts earning her livelihood equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon.

6. This is only a clarification and the entitlement of widowed/divorced daughters would continue to be determined in terms of O.M., dated 25/30th August, 2004, read with O.M., dated 28.4.2011.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Sub: Allotment/Retention of General Pool Residential Accommodation to the employees of State/Union Territories Governments posted in Delhi - clarification regarding.

As per the existing policy, the allotment/retention of residential accommodation to the employees of State/Union Territory Governments working in Delhi is made on the recommendations of the Resident Commissioner of concerned State/UT Government.

Consequently, on such occasions references are referred back to the Resident Commissioner's Office for clarification.

2.    The matter has been considered and it is clarified in this regard that the letters received from officers of the level of Additional/Deputy/Assistant Resident Commissioners of the State/UT Governments may be treated as having the approval of recommendation of the Resident Commissioner of the State/UT Governments concerned and should be acted upon accordingly.

Age relaxation to ex-servicemen employees in PSBs while competing for promotion to higher post

Age relaxation to ex-servicemen employees in PSBs while competing for promotion to higher post

File No. 4/3/2013-Welfare
Ministry of Finance
Department of Financial Services
(Welfare)
Jeevan Deep Building,
Parliament Street, New Delhi,
dated 5th September, 2013
Office Memorandum

Subject: Age relaxation to ex-servicemen employees in PSBs while competing for promotion to higher post.

The undersigned is directed to reter to ministry of Defence (MoD), letter No. 0515/Gen/DGR/Emp-3, dtd. 7th Nov., 2012, followed by DO letter No. 28(47)/2013/D(Res.1), dtd. 24.6.2013, on the subject cited above and to say that the matter was examined in consultation with DOPT and State Bank of India(SBI).

2. DOPT is of the view that as per existing instructions, Ex- Servicemen are provided relaxation in case of appointment on direct recruitment basis. Ex-servicemen who have already secured appointment under the Central Government can avail of second benefit of age relaxation for securing another appointment in any higher post or service under the Central Government. However, such candidate will not be eligible for the benefit of reservation for ex-servicemen in Central Government jobs.

3. SBI has reported that as per Gol guidelines, bank gives benefit of relaxation in service eligibility criteria for maximum period of 2 years to its ex-servicemen employees after they have rendered at least 3 years of actual service in the bank (only once during their career) for the purpose of promotion. These guidelines enable the ex-servicemen employees to become eligible for promotion to officers' cadre after 4 years of service instead of 6 years, applicable to other Bank employees. Therefore, an ex- serviceman joining the bank in the age group of 39-40 years would become eligible for appearing in the promotion exercise before they cross 45 years' of age.

4. SBI has further clarified that selection of employees for promotions from clerical cadre to officers cadre, in SBI, is not done through fresh appointment but by way of internal out of cadre career progression and therefore, provisions under DOPT's order No. 36034/6/90-Estt.(SCT), dtd. 10.10.94 which provide for benefit of age relaxation for securing another appointment in any higher post or service under the Central Government, is not applicable.

In the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi at New Delhi a similar matter came up through the WP(Civil) No. 2533/2013, titled All India Ex-Servicemen Bank Employees Federation(Regd) Vs the Chairman, SBI & Ors. Honble High Court pleased to dismiss the same vide its order dtd. 22.4.2013, observing that Notifications provide (second time age relaxation) for appointment and not promotion and petitioner in the present case are not giving up their appointments in the existing post for seeking appointments to group C and D posts but are effectively seeking promotion through proper channel by appearing in examination for promotion to the Group A posts. in view of above, there is nu merit in the writ petition, which is accordingly dismissed, leaving the parties to bear their own costs.

6. As in the instant case, ex-servicemen are seeking age relaxation in SBP (and SBI also) while competing for promotion from clerical services to Officers' cadre in their own hierarchy, where no applications are called for. DFS therefore, agrees to SBI's stand that it being a case of promotion in their own line of promotion, ex-servicemen employees are not entitled for any such age relaxation being a case of second time age benefit notwithstanding the fact that the promotion process may involve some departmental screening test/interview etc. In view of foregoing, MoD may agree that second time age relaxation could have been available only in following circumstances:

    (i) in case an ex-serviceman was competing for a higher post in officer's cadre in his own office/bank under direct recruitment quota provided the ex-serviceman employee fulfills other eligibility criteria for that, and

    (ii) he would have applied for any higher post in another PSB.

Ex-Servicemen who have been re-employed or are re-employed by Private Companies /Autonomous Bodies/ Public Sector Undertakings /Government Offices on casual/contract/ Temporary ad-hoc basis and who can be removed from such service at any time by their Employer concerned.

7. Petitions of ex-servicemen may be disposed off accordingly.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of financial upgradation under MACPS to Pharmacists

Pursuant to decision, taken in the National Council(JCM) in respect of Pharmacists, to place them in Grade
Pay of Rs.4200(PB-II) on completion of two years’ regular service without insisting on any Selection/ Suitability Test etc., who are initially recruited in PB-I with GP Rs.2800, All India Railwaymen’s Federation vide letters dated 22.02.2012, 24.04.2012 and 04.05.2012 have been persistently demanding that the initial recruitment grade of the Pharmacists needs to be taken as Grade Pay Rs.4200(PB-II) in place of G. Rs.2800(PB-I) for the purpose of granting financial upgradation under MACPS.

AIRF has repeatedly contented that considering the educational qualification, prescribed for the Pharmacists, which is 10+2(with PCM) + Diploma in Pharmacy with Experience, it was rightly decided to place them in PB-II with GP Rs.4200 just after formal completion of two years’ regular service, which should not be construed as “Promotion” for the purpose of financial upgradation under MACPS as they are not required to undergo any Selection/Modified Selection/Suitability Test etc. while placing them in PB-II with GP Rs.4200.

AIRF is, therefore, of the firm view that the aforesaid placement of the Pharmacists in PB-II with GP Rs.4200 on completion of two years’ service can no way be treated as “Promotion” while granting them benefit of financial upgradation under MACPS.

It is, therefore, urged that, in case of Pharmacists, the recruitment grade should be considered as PB-II with GP Rs.4200 instead of PB-I GP Rs.2800 for the purpose of granting them benefit of financial upgradation under MACPS and necessary clarification to this effect may be issued to all the Railway administrations for immediately implementing the same under advise to this office.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.
