Karnataka Makes Aadhaar Card Compulsory for Medical Care

Karnataka Makes Aadhaar Card Compulsory for Medical Care

Aadhaar Card was a controversial issue during the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. When the new government took charge at the Centre, there were talks that the card might be discontinued. But, now that the Government has given a go-ahead to continue the Aadhaar card, the Karnataka state government has decided to give more value to the card. Henceforth, Aadhaar number has been made mandatory for employees of the Karnataka state government who are utilizing the free medical treatment, ‘Jyothi Sanjeevani’.

There are more than 5.6 lakh state government employees in Karnataka, and 40% of them are yet to receive the Aadhaar cards. Employees without Aadhaar cards and their families have been asked to submit details, including photographs, online at the e-Governance Department. These temporary measures are valid only until the employees and their families get their Aadhaar cards. The department of labour welfare has ordered the employees to get their Aadhaar cards as soon as possible. The district collectors have been given the responsibility of conducting special camps to issue Aadhaar cards to state government employees of each district.

According to the press release issued by the Karnataka Government, Aadhaar card shall be treated as identity card for state government employees and their families to avail of free medical care under the Jyothisanjeevani Scheme. Employees will have to register their Aadhaar number, via the salary disbursing officer, with the Human Resource Department – H.R.M.S.

Employees who do not have Aadhaar cards will have to submit photographs of themselves and their family members, along with details, to the concerned officer and get them registered with the H.R.M.S.

F.No.7/22/2008 E-III(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
E III (A) Branch
New Delhi, the 23rd September, 2014.


Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2013-14 – Extension of orders to Autonomous Bodies.

Orders have been issued vide this Ministry’s Office Memorandum No. 7/24/2007 E-III (A) dated 16th September, 2014 authorizing 30 days emoluments as Non-PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for the accounting year 2013-14 to the eligible Central Government employees not covered by the Productivity Linked Bonus Schemes, subject to terms and conditions laid down therein.

2. The undersigned is directed to say that it has now been decided that the Non-PLB (Ad-hoc) bonus so admissible subject to the terms and conditions laid down in the aforesaid orders, may be extended to the employees of autonomous bodies, partly or fully funded by the Central Government which
(i) follow the pattern of pay structure and emoluments identical to that of the Central Government and (ii) do not have any bonus or ex-gratia or incentive scheme in operation.

3. In case of doubt as to the operation of these orders the clarificatory orders, circulated vide this Ministry’s O.M. No.14(10)E-Coord/88 dated 4.10.88, as amended from time to time, may be kept in view, mutatis mutandis.

4. Any request for funding by the Government to meet the liability on account of Non-PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) in respect of various autonomous organizations would not be considered by the administrative Ministries concerned, as the expenditure on Non-PLB (Ad-hoc bonus) should be met from within the existing budgetary provisions of the respective organizations. While the Autonomous Bodies not funded by the Central Government may also adopt these orders as per their own administrative and financial judgment in respect of their employees, no liability for funding will, in any case, lie on the Central Government on this account.

AIRF will not tolerate delay in Bonus for Railwaymen

AIRF will not tolerate delay in PLB. Com Shiva Gopal Mishra General Secretary has asked Railwaymen to be prepared for showdown in case PLB is delayed.

Productivity Linked Bonus to Railwaymen for the year 2013-14

All India Railwaymen’s Federation
(Estd. 1924)
Dated: September 24, 2014
The General Secretaries, All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus to Railwaymen for the year 2013-14

As you are aware, during our earlier meeting with Hon’ble Minister for Railways on 15th September, 2014, in connection with Productivity-Linked Bonus(PLB) to Railwaymen, Hon’ble MR had assured us that, there would not be any reduction in the PLB and the same would be paid before “Durga Pooja”.

Since Hon’ble Prime Minister of India is going to leave for the US, there is every likelihood of delay in the payment of PLB, which is not tolerable to us.

Though, we are still pursing the matter with the Railway Board, Hon’ble MR and MoSR, but in case PLB is not paid to Railwaymen before “Durga Pooja”, we should be in all preparedness for show-down.
Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

Ministry of Defence decided to start a nationwide cleanliness mission called “Clean Cantonments” from 25 Sept 2014

Clean Cantonments : The mission will comprise a collective and sustained effort to clean our homes, workplaces, streets, roads, pavements, schools, hospitals, markets and all other public places within our purview and keeping them clean for all times to come.

MoD to Launch “Clean Cantonments” Drive from Tomorrow

Responding to the Prime Minister’s clarion call to the people of India to realize Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of “Swachh Bharat” (Clean India) by 2nd October 2019 Ministry of Defence has decided to undertake an intensive national cleanliness campaign w.e.f 25th September 2014.

During this five year cleanliness plan it has been decided that on 2nd October 2014 “Swachh Shapath” (pledge) will be administered to all in government offices and public functions/events and cleanliness drive led by senior officers will be undertaken in all government and public offices. Besides that a variety of activities such as public marches, marathons, debates, street plays, music and essay competitions among the students and other community activities will be organized to focus public attention on this campaign and on the need for maintaining cleanliness on a sustained basis.

To begin with Ministry of Defence has decided to start a nationwide cleanliness mission called “Clean Cantonments” w.e.f 25 Sept 2014. The mission will comprise a collective and sustained effort to clean our homes, workplaces, streets, roads, pavements, schools, hospitals, markets and all other public places within our purview and keeping them clean for all times to come. For this Directorate General Defence Estates (DGDE), Ministry of Defence has directed all Defence Estate Officers and Cantonment Boards to undertake “Swachh Shapath” drive on 2nd October 2014 involving all officers and staffs in Directorates as well as offices of DEO’s. The DGDE has accordingly prepared an action plan for each Command Directorate and offices under it for a period of five years where a systemic cleanliness drive will be undertaken by a Corps of Swachh Bharat Volunteers. This core of volunteers will be tasked to create mass awareness about how to develop clean habits and keep our surroundings neat and clean. Since Clean India-Clean Cantonments campaign cannot be successful without public participation, the action plan for the same has devised a number of steps to make it happen in a coordinated manner. The steps/activities suggested by the action plan for a Clean India are as follows:-

· Door-to-door garbage collection and its segregation into biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste.
· Management of trenching grounds as per the MSW Rules, 2000.
· Proper cleaning of public places and introduction of mechanical cleaning devices to keep roads, streets and pavements spick and span.
· Daily clearance of dustbins and cleaning of surrounding areas.
· Conversion of surface drainage system into an underground drainage system connected to a Sewerage Treatment Plant. Apart from giving a cleaner look, this measure will ensure that our water bodies are protected against pollution.
· Establishment of Water Treatment Plant, wherever drinking water is supplied by the Cantonment Board.
· Mechanical cleaning of septic tanks, nullahs, underground drainage, public toilets and urinals so that no safai karamchari has to do such cleaning manually.
· Spreading the message of Clean India through school children by incorporating proper reading material in the curriculum. One way of reaching parents is through their children. Children should also be told about the importance of keeping water bodies clean.
· Developing the disseminating Cleanliness Logos and Messages which remind people about the importance of keeping their environment clean.
· Enhanced emphasis on planting trees and protecting existing trees. Species of plants which act as bio-filters should be selected for plantation in trenching grounds and other areas receiving sewage/sewerage.
· Regular field visits by officers to see that areas are kept clean. With increase of office/paperwork, officers have become increasingly desk-bound. They should change this habit and must take rounds of at least one area every day.
· Introduction of incentives, like, cleanest Street/Mohalla/Area to motivate people and to participate in the cleanliness drive competitively.
· Effective use of mass media for spreading the Swachh Bharat campaign as well as for mobilizing support therefore.
To manage and monitor the progress of this drive in an organized manner a high level committee under the leadership of Director General Defence Estates has been constituted where all Principal Directors, CEO’s and Defence Estate Officers (DEO’s) of the department have been retained as members.
