Sub:- Appeal for revision of fixed medical allowance for the Central Govt. Pensioners.
Sir,

Please refer to your letter dated 23/6/13 on the above mentioned subject. Comments item concerning this Desk is as under

2. The Govt. had on the recommendation of the 5th Central Pay Commission sanctioned Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA) @ Rs.100 p.m. as in the year 1997. After 6th Central Pay Commission this amount was raised to Rs.300 p.m. w.e,f. 1/9/2008. The demand for further enhancement of FMA was raised during the meeting with representatives of staff side (JCM) on pensionary matters held on 18/5/11. The demand has been examined in great detail. In view of the fact that the FMA was increased three-fold from Rs.100 to Rs.300 p.m. in May, 2010 (effective from 1stSeptember 2008) at a substantial cost to the exchequer, any further upgraded increase in FMA at this stage may not be appropriate given the constraint on the fiscal side. Govt. is in the interim, also contemplating introduction of Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners Health Insurance Scheme to meet the health care requirement of Central Govt. employees and pensioners. Therefore, the demand for any enhancement of FMA cannot be accepted at this juncture.

Yours faithfully,
(Deepa Anand)
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India

Fixation of pay on direct recruitment by UPSC: Clarification by PCA (EYS)

Fixation of pay on direct recruitment by UPSC: Clarification by PCA (EYS)

CIRCULAR
OFFICE OF THE P.C.A.(EYS)
10 A, S. K. BOSE ROAD, KOLKATA-700001

No. P/0/1/Circular                                                                              
Dt: 25-10-2013
Subject: Fixation of pay on direct recruitment by UPSC.

The issue regarding pay fixation in respect of the officers who were directly appointed through UPSC on or after 1-1-2006 and are in receipt of less pay than what they were actually drawing in their earlier department was under correspondence with the CGDA Office. However, clarification in this regard has since been received and it has been confirmed that such cases are to be treated as per provisions of FR22B(I) subject to fulfilment of the conditions inherent in FR-22B(l).

Since the pay fixation cases of those officers who have joined their respective offices on or after 1-1-2006 with due acceptance of technical resignation in previous Govt. Service and whose initial pay fixation has been done otherwise, need to be examined in the light of above clarification, it is requested to please forward the pay fixation proposals accordingly alongwith service books and supported documents for necessary action at this end.
