7th CPC News - Central Civil Pensioners Forum urged the Centre to announce the name of the chairman and committee members of the VII Central Pay Commission...

‘Name chief, members of 7th pay commission’

The Central Civil Pensioners’ Forum urged the Centre to announce the name of the chairman and committee members of the VII Central Pay Commission at the earliest, with terms of references in consultation with pensioners representatives and with clear instruction to submit its recommendations before June 2015.

A resolution to this effect was adopted at a fourth annual general body meeting of the forum at Srirangam recently.

Another resolution demanded that the government declare interim relief in addition to DA due from January 1, 2014 with effect from that date as the DA was crossing 100 basic points.

The meeting urged the government to drop the proposed health insurance scheme under consideration for the past several years as it was not favoured in several advanced countries in the world.

The government should recognise government headquarters hospitals in all the districts to function as CGHS for central government pensioners by appointing separate doctors for this purpose and utilise the facilities available in such hospitals.

Yet another resolution demanded the Centre to reconsider its decision to revise FMA to Rs. 1,200 to pensioners residing in non-CGHS areas as in the case of EPF and public sector undertaking pensioners.

The meeting urged the Centre to consider to exempt all pensions from Income Tax Act, to grant HRA to all pensioners, enhanced pension for 10 years to the family on the death of the pensioner, exempt from service tax the telephone bills of phones in the name of pensioners and senior citizens. V.S. Ramanujam presided over the programme. N. Guruswamy, president, presented the Pensioners Day address.

Mr. Ramanujam was elected as the new president. N. Guruswamy is the new general secretary and V. Hari Vasudevan secretary (finance) on the occasion.

Requirement of residence proof to renewal of expired CGHS Plastic Cards

While answering in the Parliament to a question regarding above mentioned the topic, the Minister of Health and Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad said that 'Proof of Residence is required for issuing CGHS cards. However, Affidavits are also accepted in absence of commonly accepted proof of residence.

He also said that CGHS cards in respect of serving employees and their dependent family members are issued on the recommendation of their Administrative Department / Office. It is incumbent upon the Administrative Department / Office to ascertain the residential status of their employee and his family members from their office records and documents submitted by the employee as their proof of residence. They can also accept Affidavits in absence of valid proof of residence'.

Inclusion of Jat community in the Central List of OBCs...

Inclusion of Jat community in the Central List of OBCs...

Inclusion of Jat community in the Central List of OBCs for the States of Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Uttarakhand and Bihar

The Union Cabinet today approved the following as suggested by the Group of Ministers.

Jats are already included in the State List of OBCs in nine States. Formal reports of the State Backward Class Commissions on the subject for the States of Haryana (2012) and Himachal Pradesh (2002) and books relating to socio economic status of farming communities in northern India and caste, land and political power in Uttar Pradesh are available. These may contain valuable and relevant material which can be utilized by the National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) to give its advice on the demand for inclusion of Jats in the Central List of OBCs in the States of Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan (two districts), Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Uttarakhand and Bihar.

This decision would enable the Jat Community to avail the benefits of reservation available to the Other Backward Classes for employment/ admission in /to Central Government services and posts/ educational Institutions.

Background:

Jat Community has been demanding inclusion in the Central List of Other Backward Classes for various states. The NCBC which was set up under the NCBC Act 1993, has been entrusted with the function of examining requests for inclusion of any Class of citizens as a backward class in the lists (Central List of Other Backward Classes) and hear complaints of over inclusion or under inclusion of any backward class in such lists, and tender advice to the Central Government as desired appropriate. At present, the Jat Community is included, in the Central List of OBCs for the States of Gujarat - Jat (Muslim) and Rajasthan (except in Bharatpur and Dhaulpur districts). They are, at present, included in the State Lists of nine States. The requests of Jats for inclusion in the Central List of OBCs for the States of Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Bharatpur and Dhaulpur districts of Rajasthan was earlier rejected by NCBC in 1997. The NCBC under the NCBC (Power to Review Advice) Rules 2011, decided to consider requests for inclusion of the Jat community after collecting additional socio-economic data through the ICSSR, in addition to data from the SECC. A GoM was constituted on 20.8.2013 to (i) engage with the representatives of the Jat community periodically; and (ii) apprise itself of the progress of the survey being conducted by NCBC through ICSSR in six states.
