Dear Sir,
Sub: Pay element in the case of Loco Inspectors - 30% addition to 7th CPC pay matrix for retirement benefits - reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR's demand in the Board PNM meeting held on 22nd & 23rd December, 2016 for continuance of 55% & 30% pay element on 7th CPC pay matrix levels.

(ii)Railway Board' s letter No.E(P&A)II-2015/RS-25 dated 24/01/2017.

Pursuant to NFIR's references and discussions held in the Railway Board PNM meeting on 22nd and 23rd December, 2016, the Railway Board vide letter dated 24/01/2017 has issued instructions to the GMs of Zonal Railways to reckon add-on pay element of 55% on 7th CPC pay matrix levels for calculation of emoluments for the purpose of retirement benefits and 30% for other purposes to the running staff as per IREM provisions and extant instructions.

In the above context, NFIR brings to the notice of the Railway Board that in terms of the extant instructions (Railway Board's letter No.E(P&A)II/83/RS-10(IV) dated 25/11/1992) contained in para 5.5 of Board's letter dated 25/11/1992, the running staff deployed as Loco Inspectors are entitled for 30% addition to their basic pay for the purpose of pensionary benefits. Those Loco Inspectors retired/retiring w.e.f. January 2016 are required to be granted retirement benefits with 30% add on to their pay in the 7th CPC pay matrix level, but, however in the absence of Railway Board's instructions, some Zonal Railways are entertaining doubts and denying benefit of 30%o on revised pay matrix.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue suitable clarification to the Zonal Railways to ensure 30% addition to the 7th CPC pay matrix of Loco Inspectors for payment of retiral benefits similar to running staff for whom 55% addition is allowed. A copy of the instruction issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

7th Pay Commission: How Jaitley saved Crores of Rupees this Financial year

7th Pay Commission: How Jaitley saved Crores of Rupees this Financial year.

It has been more than six months since the Narendra Modi government cleared the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission

Government employees are, however, yet to enjoy the full benefits of the recommendations with the decision on allowances still to be announced.

The 7th pay commission recommendations cover more than one crore government employees and pensioners. The commission recommended a 14.27 per cent hike in basic pay.

HOW MR. ARUN JAITLEY SAVED CRORES FOR THE GOVERNMENT:

1. The hike in basic pay has resulted in a marginal increase in the total salary drawn by government employees. This is because allowances form a sizeable chunk of their pay.

2. Till date, the government has not made announcements on when exactly does it plan to start giving out the allowances to its employees.

3. The government had asked the Committee on Allowances headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa to review the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission on allowances.

4. The government has given the committee an extension up to February 22, 2017 to submit its report on higher allowances. In October last year, Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa had said the committee was ready with its report.
However, no extension of period was asked by the committee, but still the government delayed the implementation by this extension.

5. The government’s dilly-dally on allowances has largely been attributed to demonetisation and the Assembly elections in five states. The 7th Pay Commission has recommended scrapping 53 of the 196 allowances, and merging a few others.

6. The hiked salary, as per the recommendations of the pay commission, is given in two parts. The increase in the basic salary is calculated from the time the government implements the recommendations of the commission, i.e. on a back date basis. As a result, employees are eligible for arrears on their basic pay.

7. The increase in allowances, however, is applicable from the date the government decides to disburse it. Therefore, government employees are not entitled to arrears.

8. Usually, once the recommendations of the pay commission are approved, the increase in basic pay is followed by an increase in allowances.

9. It is widely believed that the government will decide on a hike in allowances once the Assembly elections are over. In other words, employees can expect to get allowances from April, which marks the beginning of the new financial year.

So, finally the government has acted smart, the government has effectively saved a lot of money this financial year by not making an announcement on allowances. Government employees, on the other hand, have expressed their disappointment over being denied the full remuneration for a long time, but who cares about it!

Government Hopeful of Passing GST Bills in next phase of Budget Session

Government Hopeful of Passing GST Bills in next phase of Budget Session

New Delhi: Government is hopeful of getting the supporting legislations of Goods and Services Tax (GST) passed by Parliament in the second phase of the Budget session for rolling out the new indirect tax regime by July.

Replying to a question on GST bill, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar on Thursday said, “That is on the plate. GST council is meeting on 18th and it will be decided after that, but we are hopeful that supporting GST bills will be passed in the next phase of the session.”

The government is hopeful of getting Central GST (CGST) and Integrated GST (IGST) draft legislations approved at the next GST Council meeting on February 18 and bring them in the second half of the ongoing Budget Session along with GST Compensation Act.

While the CGST will subsume central taxes of excise, central sales tax and service tax, IGST is to be charged on movement of goods and services from one state to another.

States will also have to enact SGST or State Goods and Service Tax laws with minor variation incorporating state based exemptions.

Also, a GST Compensation Act needs to be approved by Parliament to provide for compensation to states that lose revenue because of implementation of GST in the first five years.

The GST bill was passed by the Rajya Sabha during the monsoon session last year.
