‘Rounding off’ instructions given by Ministry of Finance as per 6th CPC

‘Rounding off’ instructions given by Ministry of Finance as per 6th CPC

Once again the ’rounding off’ issue has been raised in some defence accounts departments...

CGDA clearly said that the instructions issued by Ministry of Finance vide their office memorandum dated 29th Jan 2009 to round off any amount of a rupee or more to the next multiple of ten is to be implemented only for calculation of Increment under revised pay structure granted on or after 1.7.2009.

“The increment is an increase in pay for each year in a particular date. As per 6th CPC the annual increment has been granted on 1st July of every year and the qualifying period for earning an increment is six months on 1st July. One increment is equal to 3% (three per cent) of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of ten.

As per the Rule No.13 of CCS(Revised Pay) Rules 2008, “In the case of calculation of increments under the revised pay structure, paise should be ignored, but any amount of a rupee or more should be rounded off to next multiple of 10. To illustrate, if the amount of increment comes to Rs.1900.70 paise, then the amount will be rounded off to Rs.1900; if the amount of increment works out to be Rs.1901, then it will be rounded off to Rs.1910.”

The NFSG grade came into being from the date of issue of the said O.M.

Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) Scheme came into operation w.e.f 1.9.2008. The Scheme ensures three Financial up-gradation in the immediate next higher grade pay in the hierarchy of recommended revised pay bands as given in CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuous regular service subject to the provisions of Scheme issued vide DOP&T O.M.

BSNL Employees Union: Central Government employees may get 50% DA merger

BSNL Employees Union: Central Government employees may get 50% DA merger

BSNL Employees Union published a message about the merger of 50% Dearness allowance to Central Government Employees and Pensioners.

The Central Government has already formed the 7th Pay Commission for it’s employees. The Commission will recommend wage revision for the 50 lakh Central Government employees, as well as pension revision for the 30 lakh pensioners.

As per media reports, the Government may merge 50% DA with the basic pay, for which the unions are hard pressing the Government. As of now, the Central Government employees are getting 90% DA. They are going to get another 10% DA increase from next month, which will take their total DA to 100% of pay. The normal practice is that DA will be merged with pay, when it reaches 50%. Merger of 50% DA with basic pay was done by the 5th Pay Commission, while the 6th Pay Commission refused to do so. Now, as per media reports, the Government is likely to make a proposal in this regard to the terms of reference for the 7th Pay Commission.

In respect of the BSNL employees, the BSNLEU has already raised the demand that 50% IDA should be merged with the basic pay. The recently held Rajkot CEC meeting of BSNLEU has passed a resolution, strongly demanding 50% IDA merger.
