As per Dainik Bhasker Article Govt. is ready to merge 50% DA with Basic Pay:-

38 million employees and 25 lakh pensioners electoral rarity
  • 50 per cent DA in the basic pay is set to merge soon
  • Govt. exercises to attract 38 lakh workers, 25 lakh pensioners
  • 20 thousand crore additional burden on the exchequer

Government eyes on approximately 2 and half crore votes of Central government employees and pensioners and their families. Govt is preparing to merge 50 per cent dearness allowance (DA) into the basic pay to attracted approximately 38 lakh employees and 25 lakh pensioners.

That would be in the next fortnight. If it happen, extra burden would cost of Rs 20,000 crore to the exchequer.

It may be pressure of employees of Trade Union/ threatening of indefinite strike by the central govt. employees with railway employee or it may be trial of attraction of 2.5 carores of voters. Infact D.A. is being merged with basic salary. The Secretary General of the AIRF Mr. Shiva Gopal Mishra who is representing nearly 12 lakh employees says last days, that he had corresponded with the Prime Minister's Office and the Finance Ministry. He also met with Secretary of expenditure in this connection.

This indicates that it will be announced just after the vote on account of parliament. Press Secretary of National Federation of Indian Railwaymen Mr. S.N. Malik said that the Cabinet note in this regard has become according to PMO sourcese. There is a file lying in the PMO at this time regarding this connection. It will be announced someday next week when Parliament is in session.

Infact DA of Central Govt. Employees reached up to 90% at this time and again due started with DA increment from 1st Jan. If this time there is an increase of 11 per cent on DA; it will be 101 per cent . Malik says that when the Fifth CPC DA had reached 72 per cent, 50 per cent DA was merged with basic pay without any demand from staff side. This time it is not being done. This demand of merger of 50 per cent of DA into basic pay DA of the unions is old. In view of this, , Minister of State for Finance Namo Narain Meena said in Parliament stated in August last year that Sixth Pay Commission has not recommended to merge the DA with basic pay . So the government is not doing so. However , now the situation has changed, in the view of general election, to woo the all the public the decisions are being taken. In this series, if DA has to be merged with the basic pay, then the exchequer put a burden of Rs 20,000 crore is estimated .

Entries in ACRs/APARs and proper disposal of representation against remarks in ACRs/ APARs or for upgradation/downgradation of the final grading

 No.21011/1/2005-Estt.(A)(Part.III)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)

North Block, New Delhi,
31st January, 2014
OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Entries in ACRs/APARs and proper disposal of representation in a quasi-judicial Manner by the competent authority against remarks in ACRs/ APARs or for upgradation/downgradation of the final grading.

This Department has issued OM dated 14th May, 2009 wherein the new system of communicating the entries in APAR is made applicable with effect from the reporting period 2008-09. This Department's OM dated l e April, 2010 Ministries and Departments have been further asked to provide a copy of the reckonable below bench mark ACRs for the period prior to the reporting period 2008-09 to the concerned employee for his representation, before such ACRs are placed before future DPCs. This OM also lays  down that the representations against the remarks or for up gradation of final grading in the APAR be considered by the competent authority objectively in a quasi-judicial manner on the basis of material placed before it. It provides that the competent authority shall take into account the contentions of the officer who has represented against the particular remarks/ grading in the APAR and also take the views from the reporting and reviewing officer and in case of up gradation of the final grading given in the APAR, gives specific reasons in the order.

2. The UPSC has brought to the notice of this Department that in the DPCs being held in the aegis of the Commission, orders of the competent authority do not contain specific reasons for such up gradation in a number of cases. In this regard this Department has already issued OM No. 2011/1/2005-Estt. A(Pt. II) dated 19th May, 2011 which, inter alia, states that such orders cannot be termed as disposed off in a quasi-judicial manner as laid down in the aforesaid OM dated 13.04.2010. Grading an officer below the bench mark by the DPC in such cases on the ground of up gradation being without giving sufficient reasons is prone to avoidable representations.


3. It is reiterated that proper disposal of representation in a quasi-judicial manner as outlined in this Department's OM dated 13.04.2010 is mandatory before the under consideration ACR/APAR may be placed/considered before/by the DPC.

4. All the Cadre Controlling Authorities, Ministries/Departments are advised to ensure compliance of this before sending proposals for consideration of DPCs.
