7CPC: IPS officers, IRS officers seek pay parity with IAS officers from 7th pay panel

7CPC: IPS officers, IRS officers seek pay parity with IAS officers from 7th pay panel

New Delhi: Various service associations of All India Services and allied services have represented to the Seventh Pay Commission seeking pay parity with IAS officers and adequate representation in central government’s policy making positions.


Officers associations of Indian Police Service (IPS), Indian Revenue Service (IRS), Indian Audit and Accounts Service (IA&AS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS) have made detailed presentations to the Pay Commission about their grievances and suggestions for the future.

Though made separately, the associations’ presentations unanimously voiced their demand for ensuring pay parity with IAS officers and a share in Joint Secretary-level posts at the Centre.

Though made separately, the associations’ presentations unanimously voiced their demand for ensuring pay parity with IAS officers and a share in Joint Secretary-level posts at the Centre.

The Indian Revenue Service officials demanded that top level posts be increased to accommodate them on par with IAS officers. Asserting that they were involved in the important task of collecting revenue for the government, the IRS officers association said the superiority of IAS and Indian Foreign Services (IFS) officers should go as they did not face any hardships.

Listing out the “disparities”, the associations complained about delay in empanelment of officers of their services as Joint Secretaries at the centre vis-a-vis IAS officers. For example, they said, while a 1997 batch IAS officer is empanelled as Joint Secretary, for empanelment of an IPS officer he has to be of the 1993 batch, 1994 batch for IA&AS and 1989 for IFoS.

These organisations deprecated IAS officers deciding the fate of other All India Services and Allied services officers.

The IRS officers also demanded positions ranging from Superintendents of Police to Joint Directors in the CBI for its officers, claiming they were equipped to deal with economic crimes.

IA&AS memorandum also sought equality in rules governing central deputation and allowances.

In its representation, the IPS Officers Association deplored that its demand for pay parity with IAS and IFS has been ignored by successive Pay Commissions.

“But the same (their demand) has not found favour with the Commission. Unfortunately, the reasons for turning down the request were never based on merit but through direct acceptance of flawed arguments made by the other side on the basis of specious premises,” it said.

The IPS officers also demanded that there be more options for them in central staffing and policy making, especially police-specific jobs like internal security division under the Union Home Ministry.

There are hardly any joint secretary or secretary level officers in the bureaucracy from IPS. The memorandum also said that out of 111 posts of Central Vigilance Officers, only 21 were occupied by IPS officers.

It also spoke about the duty of a police officer which went beyond his ordinary scheduled work hours. “A police officer is subject to restrictions on his private life, one of which is the obligation to obey an order to return to duty,” it said.

The duty hours spanned more than 16 hours a day and, therefore, there was a need to introduce an ‘Overtime Allowance’ for police personnel.

Previous UPA regime had announced the Seventh Pay Commission which was constituted on February 28, 2014. Chaired by Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur, it has Vivek Rae as full-time Member, Ratin-Roy as part time Member and Meena Agarwal as Secretary.

The Commission has been given 18 months to submit its recommendations and its term expires in October this year.

Government Recruitment: Over 11,000 women in central police forces

Government to recruit over 11,000 women in central police forces

New Delhi: Over 11,000 women will soon be recruited in central security forces for combat duties like border guarding and law and order assignments.

The government has taken this decision to enhance representation of women in these forces.

It has already set in motion its plan to hire 8,533 women constables in paramilitary forces like CRPF, BSF, CISF and ITBP after it recently announced one of its biggest recruitment drives to hire over 62,000 young men and women as constables this year.

Also, sanctions have been granted by the Union Home Ministry for raising 21 new companies or a total of 2,772 women personnel in the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) which guards open Indian borders with Nepal and Bhutan by 2017.

“The recruitments are being done to take the representation of women in central forces to at least 5 per cent of the total strength in the coming days. At present, women constitute about 2.15 per cent of the total strength of these forces,” a senior officer said.

Under the mega drive to hire a young workforce for these forces, a special sanction has also been accorded to the CRPF to raise two exclusive ‘Mahila’ (women) battalions within its establishment to bolster the strength of the existing three such units.

The Home Ministry, the officer said, has made its policy clear that women personnel should be at least 5 per cent of the total strength of these forces and this could only be done after conducting fresh recruitments.

What says FR & SR Rules regarding increment..!

What says FR & SR Rules regarding increment..!

Increment :
The annual increase in pay is drawn as a matter of course from the 1st of July every year, except when it is withheld as a statutory punishment. If a Government employee is on leave or is availing joining time on the 1st July, the increased pay will be drawn only from the date on which he resume duty and not from the first of July…

The annual increment will be 3% of total pay in the running pay band and corresponding grade pay rounded off to next multiple of 10. While rounding off, paisa would be ignored but any amount of a rupee or more would be rounded off to next multiple of 10.

The annual increment in pay will be drawn as a matter of course from the first of July every year, except when it is withheld as a statutory punishment. If a govt. servant is on leave or is availing joining time on the first of July, the increased pay will be drawn only from the date on which he resumes the duty and not from first of July.

The officiating service in a higher grade shall count for increments in an officer and other employee’s substantive grade as well as in the higher grade in which he is officiating and, if there is an intermediate grade between the two in which he would have officiated had he not been appointed to officiate in the higher grade, also in the intermediate grade, but the period during which an officer and other employee is on leave without pay shall not count for increment unless so authorized by the Authority for reasons to be recorded in writing.

The sanction to draw increments shall be given by the competent authority:
Provided that no increment shall be withheld except as a disciplinary measure under these regulations and each order withholding an increment shall state the period for which it is withheld and also whether the postponement shall have the effect of postponing future increments.
