Based on the Census of 2011 HRA and TA increased for Central Government employees from April 2014

Based on the Census of 2011 HRA and TA increased for CG employees for select cities

House Rent Allowance, Travel Allowance increased for select cities

Based on the Census of 2011, the House Rent Allowance and Travel Allowance for Central Government employees of a few cities are going to be hiked.

At the cabinet meeting, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it was decided that, based on the Census report of 2011, the status of 29 towns and small towns is going to be upgraded. Central Government employees employed in these cities and towns will be eligible to grant revised House Rent Allowance and Rravel Allowance with effect from April 1, 2014. This would cost the government exchequer an additional Rs.128 crores annually.

House Rent Allowance to Central Government employees is now calculated on the basis of the population census of 2001. The cities and towns are classified as X, Y, and Z, based on their population. Employees in these towns are eligible for 30%, 20% and 10% House Rent Allowances respectively.

Population census is conducted once every ten years. The most recent census was held in 2011. Official information and findings of the Census was sent by the registrar General & Census Commissioner to the Finance Ministry a long time ago.

There is no denial in the fact that the Confederation of Central Government Employees has been constantly demanding this upgrading. The Confederation had, on 28.04.2014, sent a letter to the Finance Ministry. The letter said that even though the 2011 Census Report CD was received, there is no official announcement from the Government in this regard. The letter also demanded that a revised HRA and TA be implemented immediately in the reclassification of cities and towns on the basis of 2011 Census. On 30.07.2014, the Finance Ministry had, in reply to the mail, said that steps are being taken to implement the revised HRA and TA rates to the Central Government employees of these cities and towns.

One Rank One Pension Formula May Be Similar to MP’s Pension Plan — CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES NEWS

One Rank One Pension Formula May Be Similar to MP’s Pension Plan

New OROP formula may be similar to MPs’ pension plan

NEW DELHI: The government is working on a fresh option to resolve the ongoing stand-off over ‘one-rank-one-pension’ demand of ex-servicemen, sources said on Thursday.

According to a senior government official, they are working on a proposal that would be similar to the pension scheme for MPs. The scheme operates on a band concept, with additional money for each additional year of service.-

The proposal is to create pension bands for each rank, and then provide additional money for each extra year of service. So all officers who retire in a particular rank will be in the same band of pension, with the total pension payment going up according to the number of years he has spent in that rank.

“We are working out the fine details,” one source said. Senior government officials are thrashing out the finer details, and it would be presented to the representatives of ex-servicemen and the military brass.

The latest move comes even as ex-servicemen are continuing with their protests against what they feel is a huge let down by the Narendra Modi government, which had come to power promising to implement the OROP scheme.

Ex-servicemen, some of whom have begun to boycott government functions, are planning a major rally in New Delhi on June 14 to protest against the government failure to fulfil the promise.

Ex-servicemen meet Army chief to settle One Rank One Pension

Ex-servicemen meet Army chief to settle One Rank One Pension

New Delhi: A group of ex-servicemen led by Maj Gen Satbir Singh (retd) met the Army chief Dalbir Singh Suhag to discuss for early implementation of the ‘one rank, one pension’ scheme.

The group have decided to go on relay-hunger strike from June 15 for their demand. However Army chief Suhag appealed to them to postpone it.

“We met him requesting to use his good office to convey to the government that there is no multiple definition of OROP as as been said by various people from the government,” Singh told PTI.

He said that the Army chief is not only responsible for the welfare of the serving personnel but also the ex-servicemen.

Singh said that the ex-servicemen will hold a protest rally on June 15 and will undertake a relay hunger strike from next day.

“The Army chief suggested if we could postpone it. We told him that we will go ahead with our plans as it is not against any government or person but only to highlight the injustice being done against us,” he said.
One rank, one pension scheme has been a long-standing demand of nearly three million ex-servicemen in the country.

It seeks to ensure that a uniform pension is paid to defence personnel who retire at the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement.

Vowing to address the “vexed” issue of OROP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on May 31 sought “some time” from the ex-servicemen.

Modi said the issue is not as simple as he had thought but much more “vexed” as “problems” have been added to it over the years.

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said the issue of OROP is progressing very rapidly but some patience is required.
