7th Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

Seventh Pay Commission has sought information on the parity of pay scales manifests in posts of a similar nature

MEENA AGARWAL
SECRETARY
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION
7CPC/99/RR/2014/1
Dated: 8th September, 2014
Dear

The 7th Central Pay Commission has been receiving a number of memoranda, representations from associations/federations as well as individual cadres on pay and related issues. As part of its working, the Commission is also hearing various groups of employees both in Delhi and during its visits outside Delhi.

2. One of the major issues raised before the Commission centres on the subject of parity. One aspect of parity manifests in how posts of a similar nature are placed. Certain cadres/category of employees have, in their deposition before the Commission, stated that there are cases when identical or similarly placed cadres/categories of employees in different Ministries/Departments are placed differentially in terms of pay and promotional prospects.

3. With a view to examining and addressing this aspect of parity amongst apparently similarly placed cadres/posts, the Commission has devised a template to be filled in for posts being administered by your Department. The template seeks to elicit information that would be readily available in the Recruitment Rules for the concerned post(s)/cadres. In case your Department only operates posts involving common cadres like the Central Secretariat Service (CSS), Central Secretariat Stenographers Service (CSSS), Central Secretariat Clerical Service (CSCS), a NIL report may kindly be furnished to the Commission.

4. Since the Work of the Commission is time bound may I request that information as sought is furnished by 25 September 2014. Perhaps a copy of the RRs themselves could be sent as advance information.

Yours sincerely,
sd/-

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) – New attendance system for central government employees by month-end

Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS) – New attendance system for central government employees by month-end

Aadhar-based biometric attendance for central government employees by month-end

NEW DELHI: Aadhaar-based biometric attendance systems for central government employees will be fully operational by the end of this month. “The biometric attendance system for central employees will be fully functional by the end of this month,” Information Technology Secretary Ram Sevak Sharma told PTI.

According to Sharma, the attendance of the employees can be tracked through a website, attendence.gov.in, which would be fully operational by the month-end. The website is expected to bring more transparency as it would provide and update information about central government employees on real-time basis.

The attendance web portal will use the information entered in the biometric devices and will act as a centralised management information system (MIS) for attendance. Under the new attendance system, the employees would be able to mark their attendance using biometric reading devices in various government offices.
It will facilitate employees mark their attendance at other central offices also which would help the government to track their movements. According to the information available on the attendance web portal, as many as 163 central government organisations have registered themselves for the same.
At present, as many as 1,816 biometric attendance devices are operational in various central government offices. There are around 43,000 registered users (employees), out of which 18,262 are Aadhaar verified.

Central Government Employees Launch Countrywide Stir Demanding 7th Pay Commission Interim Relief

Central Government Employees Launch Countrywide Stir Demanding 7th Pay Commission Interim Relief

The Central Government employees are going to launch nationwide protests, stressing that their 11-point demands, including interim relief for the 7th Pay Commission, be granted.

Duraipandian, the General Secretary of Central Government Employees Federation, said, whenever the Pay Commission is constituted, interim reliefs are announced. But this time, when the 7th Pay Commission was announced, we weren’t given interim relief.

We want the new pension scheme to be revoked and old pension scheme to be reinstated. Outsourcing of Central Government jobs to private firms must stop. And, we want the more than 6 lakh vacancies in various central government agencies, like the Railways, Income Tax Departments, to be filled up.

We are going to launch nationwide Dharna protests (except Jammu and Kashmir), demanding that these 11 conditions be fulfilled.
