Central government employees to get 10 percent hike in dearness allowance

Central government employees to get 10 percent hike in dearness allowance

10% DA hike for Central government employees
 In a bonanza of sorts ahead of the festival season and in the wake of soaring prices, the Union Cabinet on Friday approved a double-digit increase in dearness allowance to 90 per cent, benefiting 50 lakh Central government employees and 30 lakh pensioners, with effect from July 1, 2013.

“The Cabinet approved the proposal to release an additional instalment of DA to Central government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners, in cash, at 10 per cent over the existing rate of 80 per cent,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari told reporters here.

An official statement said they were entitled to the hike in DA/DR at the rate of 90 per cent of the basic pay. The increase “is in accordance with the accepted formula based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission.”

The impact on the exchequer would be about Rs. 10,879.60 crore per annum on account of DA and Rs. 7,253.10 crore on account of DR in the financial year 2013-14 (eight months from July 2013 to February 2014).

Significantly, the double-digit increase in DA has come after a gap of about three years. Since the government uses CPI-IW (Consumer Price Inflation – Industrial Workers) data for the previous 12 months to arrive at a figure for computation of any increase in DA instalment, the percentage hike is based on the retail inflation data for July 2012-June 2013.

The previous DA hike of 10 per cent was in September 2010 when the government announced an additional instalment given with effect from July 1 that year.

In April this year, the government announced DA increase from 72 to 80 per cent with effect from January 1, 2013.

Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying higher duties and responsibilities but carrying the same grade pay

Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying higher duties and responsibilities but carrying the same grade pay

CIRCULAR

No. Pay/Tech-1/01 (6th CPC) /2014/01
Date: 30-01-2014
To
All Group Controllers

Subject: Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying higher duties and responsibilities but carrying the same grade pay.

References hove been received from different Br. AOs and Factories regarding extension of benefit of 3% increment in terms of MoF, Deportment of Expenditure OM No. 10/02/2011-E.III/A dtd 07.01.2013 to those employees who were promoted f rom CM-II to CM-l/AF to JWM/MCM to CM on or after 1.1.2006.

In this connection, it may be stated that as per MoF, Deptt of Expenditure OM No. 10/02/2011-E.III/A dtd 07.01.2013, benefit of fixation of pay under FR 22(1) (a) (l) can be extended when both the feeder and promotional grades were placed in the identical revised pay scales based on the recommendation of the 6th CPC and where the existence of both the erstwhile posts are continued in 6 CPC and at the same time the promotional post also involves assumption of higher responsibilities as envisaged in the MoF OM No. 169/2/2000-lC dtd 24.11.2000.

In this context, it is also significant to mention that after 6th CPC, the posts of CM-II & I and AF & JWM have been merged and replaced by a single grade of CM or JWM with a grade pays of Rs. 4200/- and Rs. 4600/- respectively.  Therefore, promotion between these grades after 6th CPC remains no more available and no movement within merged grade is practically possible and the basic conditions stipulated in G of I, MoF OM dtd 24-11-2000 including assumption of higher charge and existence of feeder and promotion grade are not fulfilled. Thus the benefit of 3% increment for movement from CM-II to CM-I and AF to JWM is not admissible in terms of proviso to para 2 of the aforesaid OM dtd 7.1.2013.

Whereas, in case of movement from MCM to CM, it may be stated that prior to 1.1.2006, the MCM grade was not a hierarchical post. The MCMs were part of HS cadre during 5th CPC. After the restructuring of Artisan cadre w.e.f  1.1.2006, the MCM grade has become a separate hierarchical post and cannot be treated within the strength of the HS. Hence, the condition stipulated under proviso to para 3 of MoF OM dtd 7-1-2013, that the promotional movement should be between two different posts of feeder and promotion post prior to 1 /1/2006 now carrying some grade pay, is not fulfilled in the case of the MCM also w.e.f 01-0.l -2006.

As such, promotionol benefit in terms of MOF OM dtd 7.1.2013 to the CM-l & JWM on their promotion from CM-II/MCM & AF respectively on or after .l.1.2006 may not be considered for admittance.
Br. AOs under your control may please be intimated accordingly.

Addl. C of A (Fys) has approved.

LDC-UDC ISSUE-YET ANOTHER LETTER FROM DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE

 LDC-UDC ISSUE-YET ANOTHER LETTER FROM DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE

Dear friends,

I give hereunder the copy of the  letter received from the Department of Expenditure on the issue of upgradation of grade pay of LDC & UDC. A similar letter addressed to FA, DoPT with copy to Shri M Krishnan, Secretary General Confederation has been posted in this web site on 30th November. Association's view was that  the LDC & UDC are common cadres and spread over the entire Government of India offices and as such upgradation in a particular Department or some Departments through cadre restructuring  is not possible. As such with the support of Confederation our Association had decided to file a case so that the upgradation of Grade Pay to these cadres may get w.e.f. 1.1.2006. And the preparation for filing the case is under progress and we expect the same would be filed by 1st week of March.
