Partial Withdrawal under NPS

06 MAR 2018

The Pension Fund Regulatory Development Authority (PFRDA) has relaxed the norms for partial withdrawal under the National Pension Scheme (NPS). In accordance with the PFRDA (Exits and Withdrawals under the National Pension System) (First Amendment) Regulations 2017, the subscriber ought to be subscribed to the National Pension System, at least for a period of three years from the date of his or her joining to such system, to be eligible to make partial withdrawals, under specific circumstances as specified in such regulations.

The NPS subscribers can withdraw after three years from the date of joining the system and a maximum of three times during the entire tenure of subscription under NPS, but the partial withdrawal is linked with contributions made by the subscriber. The subscriber shall be permitted to withdraw accumulations not exceeding twenty-five per cent of the contributions made by him or her and standing to his or her credit in his or her individual pension account, as on the date of application for withdrawal.

Earlier the subscriber under NPS was permitted to withdraw accumulations not exceeding twenty-five per cent of the contributions made by him or her after 10 years from the date of his or her joining the system, and a maximum of three times during the entire tenure of subscription under NPS.

This was stated by Shri Shiv Pratap Shukla, Minister of State for Finance in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.

Ministry of Railways have eliminated the practice of manually recording punctuality performance at 41 major railway junctions across zones to ensure correct reporting of such data. The Railway Board has instructed zonal railways to link the arrival and departure of trains with data loggers from January 1 2018 without the fear of drop in punctuality and report authentic punctuality status.
A data logger (also data recorder) is an electronic device that records data over time by sensing status of relays. Railway zones have provided such data loggers this across 41 stations which include Howrah, Mumbai CST, Mughalsarai, Lucknow, Kanpur, Chennai Central, Ahmedabad and Bangalore.
It has been an endeavour of Indian Railways to run trains punctually and provide information to their customers more current, reliable and accurate, with minimal human intervention. Data Loggers were provided at Stations to monitor the status of functioning of signaling gears. For train control, Optical Fibre network has also been laid and linked to control centres of the Divisions.
It was decided to utilize these data loggers for capturing trains running information & update Control Office Application (COA) automatically at the central server. For this purpose, to start with, the data loggers of one terminal station and one more station at each zonal railway is linked with COA through optical fibre backbone for automatically picking up the train running status. The work at 17 terminal stations and 17 other stations has been implemented as a pilot project. The system has been working since 1st Jan.2018 and extended to total 41 stations. (List attached)
As on date, punctuality of almost 80% of mail/express trains is being monitored through this system. It has been planned to further expand the network covering all the terminal stations. With the implementation of this system, the information available to the passenger is reliable and more current.

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Providing opportunity for submitting representation to the employees who have been awarded below "Very Good" Grading in their last three years APARs (for the purpose of MACPS-reg. 

Ref: (i) NFIR's letterNo.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 19/01/2017.
(ii) Railway Board's letter No.E(NG)I-2018/CR/2 dated 27/02/2018.

Kind attention is invited to NFIR'S letter No. IV/MACPS /09/Part 10 dated 19/01/2017, responding to which Railway Board have issued instructions vide letter dated,27/02/2015 giving a chance as a onetime measure to represent against the 'Good' or below gradings recorded in the APARs of staff pertaining to the years 2014-15 , 2015-16 & 2016-17 .

While appreciating the decision of the Board for granting an opportunity to the staffto submit representations against the awarded gradings of 'Good' or below within 30 days from the date of Board's communication, NFIR desires to convey that in such a large network of Indian Railways, the Board's communication may not reach on time to the staff working at remote places as the publicity of the administration is also not adequate. Many staff may also

not be aware of the gradings already awarded to them by the controlling authorities.
NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to kindly reconsider and grant 90 days time from the date of Board's instructions i.e.27/2/2018, to facilitate staff to prefer appelas, wherever needed. It would also be necessary to advise General Managers of Zonal Railways to arrange to give copy of the gradings awarded to the concemed employees at the earliest. A copy of modified instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.
Yours faithfully
(Dr. M.Raghavaiah)

The engagement of AYUSH Doctors / paramedics and their training is supported by the Department of Health & Family Welfare, while the support for AYUSH infrastructure, equipment / furniture and medicines are provided by Ministry of AYUSH under Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National AYUSH Mission (NAM).

Further, under NAM, there is provision of AYUSH Wellness Centres including Yoga & Naturopathy which also envisage engagement of Yoga manpower.
