Dear Sir,

Sub: Recovery of excess amount paid to pre-1996 retirees.

I am directed to refer to your letter No.AIRF/44(29) ated 03.02.2014 on the above subject.

2. In this regard it is slated that clarificatory instructions dated 02.02.2010 & 18.03.2010 were issued to all the Zonal Railways for correction of the error committed by some of the Zonal Railways while revising pension/family pension of such of the pre-1996 retirees of the 4th CPC scale of pay of Rs.1400-2300 w.e.f. 01.01.1996/01.01.2006. The Zonal Railways were advised that the corresponding scale in 5th CPC and Pay Band and Grade Pay in 6th CPC to the 4th CPC scale of pay of Rs.1400-2300 is Rs. 4500-7000 and PB-1+ GP 2800 respectively.

3. When the corrective action was taken by Zonal Railways, some of the pensioners approached different CAT benches praying for restoration of their incorrect pension/family pension and for stoppage of recovery. In almost all the cases, the Hon’ble CAT has upheld the action of the Zonal Railways for correct revision of pension/family pension. On recovery aspect, in few cases, CATs have observed that since there was no misrepresentation on the part of the railway servants, no recovery be made.

4. In three of such cases, the Railway has filed writ petition against the order of the CAT challenging the stoppage of recovery ordered by CATs, which are still pending before High Courts. As such, any decision in regard to recovery or otherwise can only be taken after the judgment in The said cases are pronounced.

Yours faithfully,

Central employees awaiting next Government nod on DA merger

Central employees awaiting next Government nod on DA merger

Former Supreme Court Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur (above), the head of the Seventh Central PayCommission
Central government employees are awaiting next government nod on merger of 50 percent dearness allowance to basic Pay in the view of model code of conduct.

Family finances of government employees are being squeezed from all sides as inflation is rising at its fastest level in last four years. How can government employees cope with raising inflation besides merger of 50 percent dearness allowance (DA) to basic pay.

High prices of day-to-day goods make it difficult for government employees to afford even the basic commodities in their lives.

The Sixth Pay Commission did not talk about merger. As a result, with the continuous increase of dearness allowance, this has now reached up to 100 per cent of basic pay but the government did not merged 50 percent dearness allowance to basic pay on the pretext of sixth pay panel recommendation.

Earlier, the DA was merged with basic pay, only after it touched 50 per cent of the basic pay on the recommendation of fifth central pay panel.

The government has set up the Seventh Central Pay Commission to recommend for revising salaries of central government employees.

The 4-members commission, headed by Ashok Kumar Mathur, former Supreme Court Judge, will formulate pay, allowances and other facilities as well as benefits structure for 50 lakh central government employees.

The commission will also to look at the revision of pension for those who have retired prior to the date of effect of these recommendations.

However, the decision regarding merger of 50 per cent dearness allowance to basic pay will be taken only after the Seventh Pay Commission gives its interim recommendations under the terms of reference for the commission before submitting of its final report within 18 months of the date of its constitution.

The merger of 50 percent DA to basic pay will lead salaries rising by up to 30 per cent, which will cope with the present living cost of government employees.

The election Commission announced the Lok Sabha elections; model code of conduct makes the government lame-duck as it cannot take decision on merger of dearness allowance without permission of the Election Commission.

Hence, this genuine demand may be considered by the next government only on interim recommendation of seventh pay panel.

Indian Tax System and Effect on Central Government Employees.

Indian Tax System and Effect on Central Government Employees.

Comrades,

The Central Government has been informing the general public that crores of rupees were spent on salary and pension of Central Government Employees. In fact the following are facts out of total revenue of Central Government the share of CG Employees towards Salary, perks and pension amount is just 10.47 % of the total revenue of the Central Government which was earlier 16% at the.time of 6th CPC. They are in forming that 7th CPC will cost exchequer Rs 25,000/ thousand crores which will effect Central Government finances.

Secondly the Central Government Employees are paying tax for every rupee they earn including the all allowances, in fact the 5th CPC has recommended that the Central Government should not deduct any Income tax on these allowances. apart from income tax, all other taxes are also imposed just like other employees.

Further the Fifth Central Pay commission in its report vide para no105.12 has said that Dearness allowance should be paid free of net taxes as the DA is paid for compensation against price rise. The all allowances should also be paid net of taxes which has been examined by 5th CPC in para no 167.

Today according to various media reports, only 2 to 3 percent of Indians pay any income tax at all. In December, India’s finance minister, Palaniappan Chidambaram, said that 2.89 percent of the population (about 36 million people) filed income taxes. (In contrast, in the U.S., about 45 percent of the population pays taxes, which means that, despite India’s much-larger population, more Americans than Indians actually pay taxes.) CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS .

Totally a Central Government employees pay upto 30% of their salary as all forms of tax to the Central Government, even if these is any increase of salary upto 40% then also,part of the increase will also go to Central Government as revenue.

India's tax revenues nearly about Rs 14 lakh crore currently can be increased to over Rs 40 lakh crore. if proper taxation policy is adopted , that means majority of citizens of the country should be uniformly taxed.

Corporate tax collection is at Rs 2.05 lakh crore, the personal Income Tax collection, however, was at Rs 1.19 lakh crore that is just 10% of the total revenue collection.

According to Central Government sources Corporates owe over Rs 2.46 lakh crore in taxes, total tax dues to the Central Government is around Rs 5 to 6 lakhs crores. The amount paid to CG employees for the 7th CPC is just 5% of tax dues to the Central Government. CLICK HERE FOR REPORT so there should not be much financial panic on 7th CPC impact on common man.

If these dues are properly collected then Central Government can spend lot of money on the welfare schemes and also pay the Central Government Employees being a model employer handsomely pay us on par with the global market, Software companies.

So comrades , the Indian tax system should be re modeled so that proper tax system is there and every citizen of India should have uniform tax policy andCentral Government revenue should also improve and also the Government Employees are paid need based minimum wage or a decent wage, also filling up of vacant post in Central Government will also give employment to younger generation.

Comradely yours

PRESS RELEASE
 
CREDIT TO CGHS BENEFICIARIES IN EMPANELLED PRIVATE HOSPITALS TO CONTINUE

There have been reports in the Media that private hospitals on the panel of CGHS are denying credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries for delay in settlement of hospitals bills. Lower package rates and inadmissible deductions etc. have also been reported to be the other reasons for withdrawal of agreed cashless /credit facilities.

24 out of 407 Private hospitals empanelled under CGHS decided unilaterally to discontinue credit facility to the eligible categories of CGHS beneficiaries. Show Cause Notices stand issued to these Hospitals and the empanelment of five Hospitals has been suspended for a period of six months or till further orders, whichever is earlier.

In this regard, the CGHS beneficiaries are advised not to be guided by misleading information as most of the private hospitals are continuing to extend the cashless facilities to the CGHS beneficiaries. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare will ensure that the CGHS empanelled private hospitals continue to extend cashless /credit facilities to the eligible CGHS beneficiaries in compliance with the terms and conditions as laid down in the Memorandum of Agreement signed by them with CGHS.

Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has already taken special steps for clearance of pending hospital bills on a priority basis and the pendency of bills is almost cleared.

CGHS has already invited bids for revision of package rates through a transparent tender process, where the last date for submission of bids was 16th March, 2014. Steps are underway to conclude the tender process early.
