OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016-regarding.

Prior to implementation of 6th CPC Report, the pay fixation on promotion was governed by provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1). In 6th CPC context, the first part of FR 22(I)(a)(1) was replaced by Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. Similarly, consequent upon implementation of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 in 7th CPC context, the pay fixation on promotion is regulated by the provisions of Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. This rule regulates pay fixation on promotion if the same is opted by the employee from the date of promotion itself. The issue of relevancy of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) as well as the methodology of fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance, of a Government Servant in case he opts for pay fixation from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) has been considered in this Department.

2. In this context, proviso under FR 22(I)(a)(1) inter-alia provides that the Government Servant (other than those appointed on deputation basis to ex-cadre post or on ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) shall have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion or to have the pay fixed from the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of the pay in lower grade.

3. After due consideration in this matter, the President is pleased to decide as follows:

(i) FR 22(I)(a)(1) holds good with regard to availability of option clause for pay fixation, to a Government Servant holding a post, other than a tenure post, in a substantive or temporary or officiating capacity, who is promoted or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity, as the case may be, subject to the fulfilment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant Recruitment Rules,to another post carrying duties or responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him/her. Such Government Servant may opt to have his/her pay fixed from the Date of his/her Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) accruing in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, except in cases of appointment on deputation basis to an ex-cadre post or on direct recruitment basis or appointment/promotion on ad-hoc basis.

(ii) In case, consequent upon his/her promotion, the Government Servant opts to his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) in the Level of the post from which Government Servant is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his/her DNI, the Government Servant shall be placed at the next higher cell in the level of the post to which he/she is promoted.

7th CPC Promotion Chart



(iii) Subsequently, on DNI in the level of the post to which Government Servant is promoted, his//her Pay will be re-fixed and two increments (one accrued on accoun tof annual increment and the second accrued on account of promotion) may be granted in the Level from which the Government Servant is promoted and he/she shall be placed, at a Cell equal to the figure so arrived, in the Level of the post to which he/she is promoted; and if no such Cell is available in the Level to which he/she is promoted, he/she shall be placed at the next higher Cell in that Level.

Promotion Chart 7th CPC


(iv) In such cases where Government Servant opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, the next increment as well as Date of Next Increment (DNI) will be regulated accordingly.

4. It is further reiterated that in order to enable the officials to exercise the option within the time limit prescribed, the option clause for pay fixation on promotion with effect from date of promotion/DNI shall invariably be incorporated in the promotion/appointment order so that there are no cases of delay in exercising the options due to administrative lapse.

5. In so far as their application to the employees belonging to the Indian Audit and Accounts Department is concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller &Auditor General of India.

Scrapping of Interview for lower level Posts in Central Government to curb corruption - Government press release

As per information available as on 24th July, 2017, 18 States and 7 Union Territories have discontinued the practice of interview in recruitment for lower level posts.

The objective of discontinuation of interview in selection process at lower level posts is to curb corruption, more objective selection in transparent manner and substantially easing the problems of poor aspirants. Union Territory Administration of Daman & Diu has informed that it has benefitted them economically by way of savings on account of non-application of Travelling Allowance/ Daily Allowance and other expenditure involved in calling candidates for interview. Further, Union Territory Administration of Lakshadweep has informed that local aspirants have economically benefitted from this initiative of the Government.

The States of Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Haryana, Mizoram, Tripura, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are yet to decide about discontinuation of interview in the recruitment of lower level posts. The States of Sikkim and Meghalaya have not adopted the process of discontinuation of interviews in recruitment to lower level posts. However, information regarding the State of Nagaland is not available. Further, it has been informed by the State of Odisha that steps have already been taken to implement scrapping of interview system concerning junior level posts (Group B & C) of all Departments.

All Constituents of National Council JCM(Staff Side),

Dear Comrades!

Sub: Brief of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM) held today with the Additional Secretary, Department of Expenditure

A meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council(JCM) with the Additional Secretary, Department of Expenditure, has taken place today to discuss about the issues arising after the implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations.

At the beginning of the meeting: the Official Side briefed about the decision taken by the Government on the Allowances. The Staff Side thereafter raised the following issues:-

1. The Central Government Employees are dissatisfied by the decision taken by the Government not to revised the HRA percentage recommended by 7th CPC. The demand of the Staff Side is reiterated for retaining the existing percentage of 30%, 20% and 10%.

2. The low paid employees who were getting Transport Allowance @ Rs.3600 + DA a on 1.1.2016 is subject to huge financial loss since their Transport Allowance has been reduced to Rs.1300+DA. This injustice should be rectified. Official Side agreed for a review.

3. Even though the demand of the Staff Side is that, Allowances should also be revised from the date of revision of pay i.e.1.1.2016, at least Government should have given the same from the date of notification of 7th CPC as was done during the previous pay commissions. The Official Side is requested to consider this demand. The Staff Side also drawn attention of the Official Side towards the Awards given by the Board of Arbitration in favour of the employees in the past in the regard.

4. As regards Minimum Pay Fitment Formula, the Staff Side has already the justification for increasing Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor. However, Official Side has not yet responded till date on this demand. Since Minimum Pay is not derived on the basis of Dr.Akryod Formula / 15th ILC norms and Supreme Court judgement, the issue requires the review by the Government. Morever, even in the existing Pay Matrix there is discrimination between the low paid employees and high paid officers. Therefore, this demand should be discussed with the Staff Side by the Official Side so as to settle this major issue which was agreed to be considered by the Group of Ministers.

5. Government may restore various advances withdrawn and should also issue orders for revision of HBA as recommended by 7th CPC and accepted by the Cabinet.

6. While thanking the government for restoring Risk Allowance to the Defence Civilian Employees, the revised rate is very negligible. It should be at least at par with the Risk Matrix given to the Fire fighting Staff.

7. Staff Side, while thanking the government for restoration of some of the allowances, abolished/subsumed by the 7th CPC, asked the Finance Ministry to remove the barrier of coming back to Finance Ministry in case of 12 allowances meant for the Running Staff of the Indian Railways, being bilateral settlement with the Railway Ministry.

The Staff Side informed the Chairman that, considering the discontentment prevailing amongst the Central Government Employees, the Official Side may convey the feelings of the Staff Side to the Government on the above issues, and in case if ther is no positive approach from the Government, then there will be alternative than to plunge into Action Programmes.

The chairman, after a patient hearing, responded as follows :-

1. The views expressed by the Staff Side would be conveyed to the Government.

2. As regards, Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor, the Staff Side may give additional grounds and justification for any revision, so that the Official Side can consider the same.

3. After receipt of the above note from the Staff Side, the next meeting would be convened.

Comradely Yours,

SHRI HARI MANJHI:
SHRI INNOCENT:

Will the Minister of LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT be pleased to state:

(a)whether the Hon'ble Supreme Court has given a ruling that the theory of equal pay for equal work should be implemented and if so, the details thereof;
(b)whether the Hon'ble Court has also reiterated that there should be no disparity in the salary of regular and casual workers in a welfare State if both are doing same nature of work and if so, the details thereof;
(c)whether the Government is aware that the contract workers are being deprived from equal pay for equal work by their employers and if so, the details thereof;
(d)whether the Government has set up/proposes to set up a suitable redressal mechanism in this regard and if so, the details thereof; and
(e)the other measures taken/proposed to be taken by the Government for the welfare and social security of workers including casual/contract workers in the country?

ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE (IC) FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT 
(SHRI BANDARU DATTATREYA)

(a) & (b): In civil appeal number 213 of 2013 the issue for consideration ofthe Hon'ble Supreme Court was as under:

"whether temporarily engaged employees (daily-wage employees, ad-appointees, employees appointed on casual basis, contractual employees and the like), are entitled to minimum of the regular pay-scale, alongwith dearness allowance (as revised from time to time) on account of their performing the same duties, which are discharged by those engaged on regular basis, against sanctioned posts".

The Hon'ble Supreme Court held that:
"There can be no doubt, that the principle of ‘equal pay for equal work' would be applicable to all the concerned temporary employees, so as to vest in them the right to claim wages, at par with the minimum of the pay-scale of regularly engaged Government employees, holding the same post"

(c) & (d): In so far as the contract labour is concerned, the ContractLabour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970 and the rules framed thereunder regulate the employment of contract labour. Rule 25(2)(v)(a) of the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Central Rules, 1971 provides for parity as mentioned below:
"in cases where the workmen employed by the contractor perform the same or similar kind of work as the workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment, the wage rates, holidays, hours of work and other conditions of service of the workmen of the contractor shall be the same as applicable to the workmen directly employed by the principal employer of the establishment on the same or similar kind of work"

A well-established Central Industrial Relations Machinery (CIRM) is in place to enforce the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970. The country-wide network of Dy. Chief Labour Commissioners (Central) and Regional Labour Commissioners (Central) under the control of Chief Labour Commissioner (Central) is mandated to settle the complaints/claims of the contract workers in terms of the provisions of the said Act and the Rules framed thereunder
(e): In order to provide social security benefits to the workers in theorganised sector, the Government has enacted the Employees' Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 and Employees' State Insurance Act, 1948.

For providing social security benefits to the workers in the unorganised sector, the Government has enacted the Unorganised Workers' Social Security Act, 2008 which stipulates formulation of suitable welfare schemes for unorganised workers on matters relating to:

(i) life and disability cover,
(ii) health and maternity benefits,
(iii) old age protection and
(iv) any other benefit as may be determined by the Central Government through the National Social Security Board. Various Schemes, formulated by the Government to provide social security cover to the unorganized workers as listed in Schedule I of the above Act.

Central Government has also launched the Atal Pension Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana for all citizens especially targeting unorganised workers to provide them comprehensive social security.
