No.II/23/Part III

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board.
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in 
Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board's letter No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 26/2/2017.
(ii) NFIR's letter No. II/23/Part III dated 12/03/2018.
(iii) Railway Board's reply vide No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 09/05/2018 addressed to GS/NFIR.
(iv) NFIR's PNM Agenda Item No.18 sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018.

Federation desires to invite kind attention of Railway Board to the letter dated 26/12/2017 wherein instructions have been issued for revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways with retrospective effect i.e. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016. Federation expresses its anguish over non-appreciation of ground reality highlighted by the Federation vide its letter dated 12/03/2018 for taking remedial action and instead, sent reply vide letter dated 09/05/2018 that the revision in the flat rate of license fee is based on the pattern of Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Due to this negative approach, the Federation was compelled to raise the issue vide PNM Agenda Item No. 18 (sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018), but unfortunately, instructions have not been modified yet.

Besides above, the Federation desires to convey to the Railway Board that the reports are received from the NFIR affiliated Unions that though outstanding dues towards office rent, electricity, telephone and water charges have already been cleared by the affiliates, the Divisional Administrations have raised bills for payment arrears towards rentals of office accommodation from 01/07/2010 to 30/06/2013, 01/07/2013 to 30/06/2016 and 01/07/2016 to 31/03/2018. While the Board's instructions dated 26/12/2017 are unjustified, the action of Railway Administration, demanding payment of arrears on account of Office rent of the accommodations in possession of the affiliated Unions is totally wrong.

As the subject has already been taken up by the Federation in the PNM fora at Board's level, it is urged that the instructions dated26/12/2017 be kept in abeyance or withdrawn.
Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

All India Pension Adalat - 600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

600 retiring Central Government employees to participate in Pre-Retirement Counselling Workshop

17 SEP 2018
The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh will inaugurate the All India Pension Adalat here tomorrow.

The Pension Adalat, being organised by the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare (DoP&PW), will be one of the largest exercises for Pensioners’ Welfare ever undertaken by the Government as part of Good Governance dedicated to Central Government Pensioners. It is a unique effort wherein on a single day all the Central Government Ministries would be conducting their respective Pension Adalats in which on-the-spot resolution would be provided across the table to the grievance holder.

All the stakeholders of the pensioner’s case viz. the Department, Pay and Account Officer, the concerned Bank, along with the pensioner or his representative, will settle the grievance within the framework of extant rules. This is a great reformative measure to get the grievances resolved in the quickest possible way by avoiding unnecessary recourse by the pensioners to Courts.

It is expected that this measure will resolve issues of thousands of pensioners in one day, in a single sitting across the country. In addition to the Central Ministries, the Offices of Accountant General would be separately addressing the Pensioner grievances of All-India Service officers, in all the states across the country.

Besides the Pension Adalat, a Pre-Retirement Counselling (PRC) is also scheduled for the Central Government employees who are about to retire in the next six months. 600 retiring Central Government employees will participate in this PRC out of which a significant number will also be from the Central Armed Police Forces. The objective of the PRC Workshop is to create awareness about post-retirement entitlements as well as to educate them on advance planning for retirement including medical facilities and participation in voluntary activities after retirement.

On the occasion, Dr. Jitendra Singh will also give away the Anubhav Awards-2018 to recognise the contribution of the Central Government employees to the Anubhav Portal which is designed to create an institutional memory for successive generations of Central Government employees. It may be recalled that the Anubhav scheme had been instituted at the call of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in the year 2015. This is meant to encourage retiring and retired employees to submit an account of their experiences while working in the government and thereby create an institutional memory to help in future governance as well as to motivate and inspire different generations of government officials in their respective assignments. The scheme has resulted in registering more than 5,000 Anubhavs from Government employees till date from 91 Departments.

20 lakh people have joined the modified Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna (PMJDY) scheme, total account holders 32.61 crore

Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna (PMJDY)

As many as 20 lakh people have joined the modified Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna (PMJDY), taking the total number of account holders in the flagship financial inclusion programme to 32.61 crore as on September 5, according to finance ministry data.

The government earlier this month relaunched PMJDY as an open-ended scheme with higher insurance cover and double the overdraft (OD) facility.

The Union Cabinet decided to continue the scheme beyond the four-year period ended August 14 with an aim to take the formal banking system from "every household to every adult".

During the August 15-September 5 period, the total deposits in 32.61 PMJDY accounts witnessed an increase of Rs 1,266.43 crore.

The balance in PMJDY accounts was Rs 82,490.98 crore as on September 5.

Under the revamped scheme, accidental insurance cover for new RuPay card holders has been raised from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 2 lakh for new PMJDY accounts opened after August 28.

Also, the existing OD limit of Rs 5,000 has been increased to Rs 10,000. Further, no conditions will be attached for OD up to Rs 2,000.

The data also showed that nearly 7.18 lakh people, who opened PMJDY account after August 28, may get the benefit of increased accidental insurance cover of Rs 2 lakh.

Launched in August 2014, the first phase of PMJDY focussed on opening basic bank accounts and RuPay debit card with in-built accident insurance cover of Rs 1 lakh.

Besides, it provided Basic Banking Accounts with OD facility of Rs 5,000 after six months.
Phase II beginning August 15, 2018 was planned to provide micro-insurance to the people and pension schemes to unorganised sector workers through Business Correspondents.

About 53 per cent of PMJDY account holders are women, while 83 per cent of the total accounts are seeded with Aadhaar.
