7CPC: 7th Central Pay Commission - DAPWA - Charter of Demands

7CPC: 7th Central Pay Commission -  DAPWA - Charter of Demands
 It is now three months that the Government announced setting up of the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The names of the Chairperson and members as well as the terms of reference (ToR) are yet to be announced.

The fourth, fifth and sixth Central Pay Commission’s recommendations were implemented as follows: 4th CPC 1.1.1986; 5th CPC 1.1.1996; 6th CPC 1.1.2006

 The average time taken by a Pay Commission to submit its recommendations has been about two years. Accordingly, allowing about two years for the 7th CPC to submit its report, the recommendations are likely to be implemented with effect from 1.1.2006.

A study has established that 6th CPC based increase in pension has not been uniform for all pay scales as compared to the scales of 5thCPC. It has been observed that at the lower level, the increase in pension has been much lower. In respect of PB-1, the increase in pension was 1.86% over 5th CPC scales (5200 is 1.86% of 2750 the lowest of corresponding 5th CPC scale), in case of PB-2 the situation is same (1.86%), whereas in the case of PB-4, it is 2,6%, and in higher scales HAG, it ranges minimum 3% and more. We seek equitable and uniform increase in all cases.

Pension calculation formula should be simple & uniform. It should be directly related to last pay drawn with simple equation such as 50% of last basic pay plus DR and family pension 30% of last basic pay plus DR. For pre 2016 pensioners notional pay fixation should be done & there should be common multiplication factor for all the pensioners.

1. Merger of 50% DR with basic pension w.e.f 1st Jan 2014. Presently DR is 90% and from 1st Jan, 14 is expected to be above 10%.

2. We seek full parity between past and future retirees. Any improvement in service conditions introduced for serving employees, such as full pension at 10/20 years service must be extended to past pensioners/retirees.

2. We seek Old age pension to start from the age of 65 years, as is the case in Punjab and some other states and additional pension should be granted on yearly basis instead of five years.

3. The rates of pension should be minimum 60% of last pay drawn, and that of Family pension

4. The distinction between organized cadres and others must be done away with. All employees of central Govt. must be treated equally, and any incentive, such as NFU must be extended to all similarly placed personnel.

5. Pensioners must be provided with adequate Medical facilities by providing medical insurance cover and enlarging the coverage of private empanelled hospitals and by appointing medical specialists. If need be retired medical specialists may be appointed in CGHS Dispensaries.

6. Defence civilian pensioners must be extended CSD canteen facilities which they enjoy during their service tenure.

7. LTC Facility be provided to the pensioners on the pattern of Punjab Government rules.

8. Enhanced of Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA) from present Rs.300 to Rs.2500. There can’t be & must not be allowed discrimination between different two sets of pensioners (pensioners of Labour Ministry are being Paid Rs 2000.

9. Income tax exemption limit should be raised to Rs.5lacs for sr. citizen pensioners.

10. Enhanced family should be paid for 10 years even in the case of death after retirement.
Note: This has since been unanimously passed in Monthly meeting of DAPWA held on 1st Dec, 2013.

MACP-An Unsettled Issue Of (6CPC) Sixth Pay Commission Recommendation

MACP-An Unsettled Issue Of (6CPC) Sixth Pay Commission Recommendation

MACP is said to be the abbreviation of Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme, but many central government employees feel that it is Meaningless Assured Career Progression Scheme. The main objective of introducing ACP scheme was to grant financial benefits for the govt servants, those who are not getting promotions due to lack of promotional avenues. Before the introduction of ACP scheme in 1999, many central government employees retired from service without getting even single promotion in some departments. The worst part of this story is, apart from not getting promotion, they were not even been granted annual increment for many years until their retirement, as they reached the maximum of their Pay Scale. Working without any promotion and increment until the retirement is pathetic. It was the prevailing situation till the date of introducing ACP scheme.

Financial up gradation under ACP Scheme

Upon introduction of ACP scheme, central government employees were granted two financial up gradation on the completion of 12 years and 24 years of regular service respectively in the same post. According to the ACP Scheme, the central government employees were to be granted next higher pay scale of their Promotional Hierarchy as financial up gradation under ACP Scheme. So the pay equalant to the promotional post had been ensured under ACP scheme for the government servants after completion of 12 and 24 years of regular service if they were not granted regular promotion. Many central government employees were benefited by this scheme where there were no promotional avenues available for them.

Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS)

The Sixth CPC recommendation on ACP scheme and government’s decision gave all the central government employees surprise and shock both. The Sixth Central Pay Commission in Para 6.1.15of its report, has recommended Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS). As per the recommendations, financial up gradation would be available in the next higher grade pay whenever an employee has completed 12 years continuous service in the same grade. However, not more than two financial upgradations shall be given in the entire career, as was provided in the previous ACP Scheme. The Scheme will also be available to all posts belonging to Group “A” whether isolated or not. However, organised Group “A” services will not be covered under the Scheme

The Government has considered the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission for introduction of a MACPS and has accepted the same with further modification to grant three financial upgradations under the MACPS at intervals of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuous regular service. The surprise was that, government’s consideration for modifying the ACP scheme to grant three financial up gradation for central government employees on completion of 10,20 and 30 years of regular service. But its decision to grant immediate next higher Grade Pay in the hierarchy of Grade Pay instead of Promotional Hierarchy is the shock for everyone.

The MACP Scheme envisages merely placement in the immediate next higher Grade Pay in the hierarchy of the recommended revised Pay Bands and Grade Pay. For example, if a govt servant appointed as LDC in the grade pay of Rs.1900/-, he will be granted Rs.2000/- Grade Pay as first MACP after completing 10 years of regular service though this Grade Pay is not in the promotional hierarchy of the individual concerned. Whereas the first financial up gradation to be granted under ACP Scheme will be Rs. 2400/- Grade Pay on completion of 12 years of regular service as ACP was granted on the basis of promotional hierarchy. As a result of this the Modified ACP Scheme has not served the purpose that it was supposed to. So the Modified Assured Career progression Scheme needs to be modified again. The financial up gradation has to be granted on the basis of Promotional Hierarchy of posts instead of hierarchy of Grade Pay.

The decision of Joint Committee of MACP Scheme

The Staff Side of National Anomaly committee also reiterated their demand in the last meeting of the Joint Committee of MACP Scheme held on 15.03.2011 under the Chairpersonship of the Joint Secretary (Estt), DOPT that the financial up-gradations under the MACP Scheme should be granted in the promotional hierarchy of posts instead of the Grade Pay hierarchy. The Staff Side stated that the erstwhile ACP Scheme was implemented on the recommendations of the 5th CPC and, as such, has become a part of the service conditions of the employees. The Staff Side, therefore, contended that the Government cannot impose the MACP Scheme thereby altering the service conditions to the detriment of the employees.

In this regard the Judgment of Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal, Chandigarh has been upheld by the Honble High Court of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh. In a separate case filed in CAT, Principle Bench, New Delhi, to grant next promotional Grade Pay under MACP Scheme, the Honble CAT gave its Judgment in favour of applicants based on the judgments of above cases. The appeal against the judgment of Honble High Court of Punjab and Haryana has been dismissed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court.

Almost all the Federations have demanded the Central Government to issue necessary instructions for granting financial up gradation under MACP scheme on Promotional hierarchy as per the Court Order. So it is high time for the government to come forward to issue the necessary order to grant financial up gradation under MACP scheme in Promotional hierarchy to make this scheme serve its purpose and avoid confusion.

History of Defence Accounts Department - DAPWA

History of Defence Accounts Department - DAPWA
The organisational history of the present Defence Accounts Department may be traced to the Article of War adopted by the British Parliament en April, 1747. Regulation 17 of the Articles empowered the Government to appoint a Millitary Pay Master for disbursing the Pay and Allowances of the officers, NCOs and Private men. Millitary Pay Master General, Purser General and Pay Master General were the fore-runners of Commissary General, in modern parlance Controller of Defence Accounts.

Defence Accounts Department, evolved over the last 266 years, is presently responsible for the payments, accounting, financial compilation of reports, internal financial advice and internal audit of the expenditure and receipts of Army, Navy, Air force, Ordnance Factories, Research and Development Organization and Inter-Service Organizations. Similar services are also provided to the Defence related organizations such as the Border Roads, the Coast Guard and the Canteen Stores Department.

During the year 1747 to 1760, our Department was known as Millitary Pay Master and Commissary General. During 1766 Pay Master General was created by amalgamating Commissary General and Millitary Pay Master. After a lapse of seven years in 1773 the Commissary General was revived to control Millitary Stores, Contracts and to audit and certify all bills for Millitary Charges. Again after fifteen years in 1788 Commissary General was re-designated as Auditor General of Millitary Accounts. Millitary Pay Master General constituted to make advances for Millitary Disbursements.

After completion of 113 years in 1860, Millitary Finance Department with a Chief for whole of India was constituted. Under the Chief, functioned a Controller of Millitary Finance in each Presidency and under each Controller functioned Examiners and Compliers. The Board of Audit comprising Accountant General (also Auditor General) and Chief of Millitary Finance Department was constituted. After a short span of five years Accountant General of Millitary Department was redesigneated as Controller General of Millitary Expenditure, which was further re-designated as Accountant General of Millitary Expenditure in 1871. In 1906 Millltary Accounts Department was made subordinate to Finance Department as a result of creation of two separate departments viz Army and Millitary Supply in lieu of Millitary Department. It was headed by Millitary Accountant General. On 01st October 1913, Financial Advisor Millitary Finance was created in place of Millitary Finance Branch.

Thus it would be seen from the above that number of times the name of the Department was changed without diluting the functions of the Department. In 1920 a major change was effected as Accounting of Millitary Works Expenditure hither to being done by Comptroller and Auditor General was transferred to Millitary Accountant General and in the same year Controller of Marine Accounts, presently CDA (Navy) formed In Bombay (now Mumbai) and Controller of Royal Air Force Accounts, presently CDA (Air force) formed in Ambala. The year 1920 saw so many changes because Accounting of Millitary works was decentralized to various Controllers of Millitary Accounts. After World War-I Army restructured into four commands. The idea of Centeralized Pension, hither to dealt by each controller was mooted and ultimately resulted in the creation of Controller of Millitary Accounts (Pensions), Lahore in 1929. Our Department was the first wherein Hollerith Machines were introduces in 1931. In 1942 consequent upon on major restructuring of entire Army, Millitary Accounts Department reorganized with CMA, North Western Command at Rawalpindi, CMA Eastern Command at Ranchi, CMA Southern Command at Pune, CMA Central Command at Meerrut, CMA (Pension) at Lahore and FCMA, Pune to Account and audit all field formations and for making advances to the officers. In 1950 FCMA (ORS) moved from Ambala to Secundrabad and the fund work transferred from Eastern Cmmand to Hollerith Section, Meerut in 1951.

On 01st October 1951 Millltary Accounts Department was re-designated as Defence Accounts Department and Controller of Millitary Accounts accordingly re-designated at Controller of Defence Accounts. Millitary Accountant General was also re-designated as Controller General of Defence Accounts. This is the precise reason for celebrating 01st October as Annual Day of Defence Accounts Department.

We are the first Department of the Govt. of India to introduce computer IBM-1401 in Meerrut during the year 1969. Undergoing a great change DAD projects for construction of office and residential accommodation were undertaken by us in 1977. To impart training National Institute of Financial Management and Accounts (CDA Training) was established at Meerrut in 1978. In 1983 Integrated Financial Scheme was introduced in Ministry of Defence-FA (DS) and DAD came under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Defence. Further, to strengthen the system of training Regional Training Centers were setup at Meerut, Pune, Bangalore and Calcutta (now Kolkatta) in 1991. The Controllers of Accounts (Factories) was also redesignated as Controller of Finance and Accounts (Factories) in 1994. IFA system was introduced for Air Force, Naval HQs, Border Roads and Army HQs in the years 1994, 1995. A major change took place in the reorganization of the Army Controllers. Functional Controllers for other ranks abolished and the work transferred to respective Army Controllers in 1995.

In 1996 the Department look a further leap by inauguration of Training-cum-Convention Centre, CGDA Office, Brar Square, New Delhi and We are first amongst various Departments of Govt. of India, to whom the award of ISO 9002. 1994 was accorded to one of our Accounts Office, Ordnance Factory, Dehu Road.

Defence Accounts Department is marching ahead of various other departments of the Govt. of India with a missionary zeal with moto ‘In the service of Services. We are proud to be a part of this great Department and we bow our head to the great traditions of the Department and wish the present leadership will strive to achieve more glorious heights in the time to come.
