Reduction of Defence – Tatkal – Female and Senior Citizens quotas in trains

Reduction of Defence – Tatkal – Female and Senior Citizens quotas in trains

Reduced Railway Quotas in Trains – Defence / Tatkal / Female and Senior Citizens quotas are not reduced in the total number of berths/seats earmarked…

While answering to a question in Lok Sabha on 14th August 2014, Minister of State for Railways Shri Manoj Sinha said that there has been no reduction in total number of berths/seats earmarked on Indian Railways under Tatkal, Ladies and Senior Citizens quotas. However, based on poor utilisation, there has been marginal reduction in number of berths/seats earmarked under Defence Department Quota.

Train-wise, class-wise distribution of all types of reservation quotas except Defence Department Quota is done by the Zonal Railways on the basis of demand pattern and availability of accommodation. Reservation Quotas so earmarked including Defence Department, Tatkal, Ladies, Senior Citizens are reviewed on periodical basis and adjustments made, wherever required, based on utilisation. This is a continuous process.
There has been no reduction in the total number of berths/seats earmarked under Tatkal, Defence Department, Ladies and Senior Citizens quotas in trains originating from Delhi area and terminating/passing through Bangalore, Hubli and Kankanandi (Mangalore) as indicated below:

Type of Quota Number of berths/seats earmarked in the year

Quota                                    2013          2014
Tatkal                                    2438          3008
Defence Department             53               55
Ladies                                  78               92
Senior Citizen                       307            398

Although, there is marginal reduction in the Defence Department quota on all India basis, there is no reduction in the accommodation earmarked under Tatkal, Defence Department, Ladies and Senior Citizens quotas in trains originating from Delhi area and terminating/passing through Bangalore, Hubli and Kankanandi (Mangalore). Since the reduction of Defence Department Quota was on account of poor utilisation, there is no proposal to restore this quota to the earlier level.

Merger of DA with pay and grant of interim relief and Date of effect of 7th CPC: Confederation Charter of Demands

Merger of DA with pay and grant of interim relief and Date of effect of 7th CPC: Confederation Charter of Demands

 The wage revision of the Central Government employees had always been through the setting up of Pay Commissions. Since the wage revision exercise involves inquiring into various aspects of wage determination and service conditions of the Government employees the Government had been appointing Pay Commissions for it was considered a better suited system. Such inquiry through setting up of Commissions had been a time consuming process. The 3rd, 4th and 5th Central Pay Commissions had taken more than three years to submit their reports. The 6th CPC however, submitted its report in the time frame provided to it i.e. 18 months.

 Since the earlier Commissions had covered many aspects of the principles of wage determination and the periodicity of such revision had come down, the exercise might not now require a longer period of time as was the case earlier. Even then the Commission will have to be given a reasonable time frame to go into the matter judiciously, for the 6th CPC recommendations when implemented has given rise to large number of anomalies and cadre related grievances. The methodology adopted for compensating the erosion in the real value of wages in the interregnum period had always been through the mechanism of merger of a portion of DA. The 5th CPC had recommended that the DA must be merged with pay and treated as pay for computing all allowances as and when the percentage of Dearness compensation exceeds 50%. Accordingly even before the setting up of the 6th CPC the DA to the extent of 50% was merged
with pay.

It is pertinent to mention that even this benefit was denied to the Gramin Dak Sewak (GDS) of the Postal Department. As on 1.1.2011, the Dearness compensation was 65%. The suggestion for merger of DA to partially compensate the erosion in the real wages was first mooted by the Gadgil Committee in the post 2nd Pay Commission period. The 3rd CPC had recommended such merger when the Cost of Living index crossed over 272 points i.e. 72 points over and above the base index adopted for the pay revision. In other words, the recommendation of the 3rd CPC was to merge the DA when it crossed 36%. The Government in the National Council JCM at the time of negotiation initially agreed to merge 60% DA and later the whole of the DA before the 4th CPC was set up. The 5th CPC merged 98% of DA with pay.

The Staff Side of the National Council JCM in its meeting with the Secretary, Personnel convened for the purpose of finalising the terms of the reference of the 7th CPC did raise the issue of merger of DA with pay. Though it was assured that the Government would take a final decision in the matter, the matter was not referred to the 7th CPC, nor did they deem it fit to take an executive decision. Despite the absence of any reference to the 7th CPC, the staff side discussed the issue with the Chairman and other members in the Pay commission. On the basis of the said discussion, a separate memorandum detailing as to how the employees are entitled to the benefit of Interim Relief and Merger of DA was submitted to the Commission.

 The Staff Side was informed of the forwarding of the said memorandum by the Commission to the Government for a decision at their end. The Government is therefore duty bound to take a decision in the matter without further loss of time.
