Central employees to get 7% D.A. from 01.07.2014
Consequent to 2 points increase in the All India Consumer Price Index for June 2014, the final calculation for D.A. from July 2014 can be done.
As informed earlier in this blog, Central employees and pensioners are going to get a 7% increase in Dearness allowance with effect from 1st July 2014.
The increase will have to get cabinet approval and expected to be officially endorsed in the month of September as per existing norms.

Memorandum including Proposed Pay Scales for Railway Employees has been submitted by AIRF to 7th Pay Commission on 30.07.2014.

, by indianmilitaryveterans


Memorandum including Proposed Pay Scales for Railway Employees has been submitted by AIRF to 7th Pay Commission on 30.07.2014.

PREFACE

All India Railwaymen‟s Federation(AIRF), being the oldest and the largest organization, representing over a million Non-Gazetted employees in the Railways, established in British era in the year 1924, represents nearly half of the Central Government employees in India.

AIRF is recognized by the Railway administrations along with its constituent unions in 16 Zonal Railways as also as in Metro railways Kolkata and Rail Coach Factory Kapurthala, based on the results of secret ballot elections for the recognition of the unions. Its affiliates are leading TRADE unions in the 6 other Production Units of Indian Railways, where secret ballot system is yet to be introduced. 

AIRF is thus the second major stakeholder after the Joint Consultative Machinery, National Council (JCM/NC)(of which AIRF is the largest constituent.) before the Seventh Central Pay Commission. 

It is, however, a matter of serious concern that even after more than six decades of independence, some of the basic issues of the Central Government employees continue to haunt the Working Class, without any proper redressal either by the successive Pay Commissions, including the VI CPC or by the

Government, thereby causing much frustration, leading to industrial unrest that resulted in three major strikes in 1960, 1968 and 1974, besides serving of Strike Notices by the Central TRADE Unions, including the AIRF in 1997 and 2006 when the strikes were averted by settlements of certain issues.

Even though some of the issues could be resolved through negotiated settlements over the years, the continuous denial ofjustice by the successive Pay Commissions, especially on the following issues, are the root cause of major unrest among the Railwaymen even after submission of the report by these CPCs:-

(i) “Even the Need Based Minimum Wage” – as per recommendations of the 15thLabourConference (1957), as modified under Supreme Court‟s orders;

(ii) Parity of Pay with(Central) Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs);

(iii) Reduction in Periodicity of Wage Revision of Central Government employees to 5 years – at par with PSUs;

(iv) Removal of anomalies of the successive Pay Commissions;

(v) Implementation of decisions of Anomaly Committees & Board of Arbitration.

(vi) Compulsory Arbitration for settlement of Disputes;

(vii) Compensation for special Conditions of Service in the Railways.

It is regrettable that, in spite of major all round development and major improvement in the economic scenario of the country, over the last six decades, the wages of the Central Government employees are neither “Fair” nor even “Need Based”...

DELAY IN ISSUANCE OF OROP IMPLEMENTATION LETTER
CAUSE FOR CONCERN

Dear Sh Arun Jaitley
1.    Please refer to the meeting of IESM delegation with you on 16 July 14 and the reaction of veteran community about the outcome of the meeting. Please also refer to my letter dated 19 July 2014.
2.    IESM delegation did feel a hint of broken promise during the meeting. However, IESM issued a very measured but positive statement of the outcome of the meeting. Veterans are intelligent and they read in between the lines and reacted strongly about the outcome of the meeting. It will be important to mention here that the Veterans’ family is seriously concerned that various political parties after forming the Government in the past had not kept their promises made pre elections and because of this they have lost confidence in Politicians and bureaucrats. Bureaucrats took advantage of their proximity to politicians and improved their salaries and perks as compared to Armed Forces Personnel and veterans. Bureaucrats pension has been increased 108 times and that of Military veterans only 45 times since 1973, is an example of this bias.

What is the current status on One Rank One Pension?

, by indianmilitaryveterans

What is the current status on One Rank One Pension?

- Hindustan Times report

The demand for one rank one pension (OROP) was accepted by the previous government and a provision of Rs. 500 crore was made in the interim budget. The new government, stating its intention to implement the demand many times, has also provided for it in the regular budget. However, veterans are nowhere neargetting the enhanced pensions envisaged. What is the current status on OROP?
A high-level meeting was taken by the defence minister on July 16 to thrash out issues with Service Chiefs, staff of Services headquarters and the top brass of the defence ministry, including defence accounts and the department of ex-servicemen’s welfare attending.
Also present were the representatives of four major ex-servicemen’s organisations to give inputs and plead their case. Regrettably, the meeting was inconclusive. A deadlock was created over the most basic issue, the very definition of OROP between bureaucrats of the MOD on one side and the uniformed fraternity plus the veterans on the other. The defence minister stated that the Koshiyari Committee’s definition of OROP might not be acceptable to the government now. His remark to veterans to lower their expectations reveals the stand of the government on the issue, causing consternation among them.
The political executive as well as the people of this country must realise that OROP is not a concession but is meant to offset restricted terms of service to soldiers wherein they are retired at a very young age. Here, the definition set by the Koshiyari Committee must prevail in that OROP implies that uniform pension be paid to Armed Forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement, and any future enhancement in the rates of pension to be automatically passed on to past pensioners. It is significant that this explanation had already been accepted by the government. My take is that the government needs to show political will and make good on its promises.
NAVAL REGIMENTAL SYSTEM
The Indian Navy looks after its own. Through the Naval Regimental System (NRS), an institutionalisedsupport system has been set up to provide practical help to widows and next of kin of naval personnel. Seven Command Regimental System Officers and their teams are on the job, getting in touch with families of deceased naval personnel, whether retired or serving, to look after them and make certain that they receive all their entitlements. Regimental state units exist on the ground to meet veterans and widows: while updating their database, they educate them on their rights. They make sure all widows have canteen cards and ECHS memberships besides other documents, enabling them to exercise their rights and privileges.
Started in 2011, the NRS has now been instituted all over the country and has been successful in providing substantial assistance to a number of naval widows. As part of the targets set for the ‘Year of Ex-Servicemen’ in 2012, the outreach programme for veterans and widows was put into motion.
The next year this was extended to the scheme to undertake full responsibility for the welfare of widows and next of kin. The results have been very satisfying.

Confederation Proposed New Pay Structure and Rate of Increment in its memorandum to 7th Pay Commission

Confederation Proposed New Pay Structure and Rate of Increment in its memorandum to 7th Pay Commission

Proposed Pay Structure and Rate of Increment

In the preceding chapters we have dealt with the various principles of pay determination as was enunciated by the successive Pay Commissions. The 6th CPC introduced the new concept of Pay Band and Grade Pay. We are not able to comprehend any logical methodology having been adopted by the 6th CPC in constructing the Pay Band and Grade Pay. In the ultimate analysis, we found that there had been no uniform multiplication factor. It varied from 2.2 time to 3. The changes effected by theGovernment while implementing the recommendations of the 6th CPC further compounded the confusion and making it more irrational and arbitrary. 

The 6th CPC in their report stated that they have upgraded certain pay scales having appreciated the contention made by the employees organizations. They merged certain other pay scales in an effort to delayering the functions. But the new pay that emerged from such upgradation/merger was not equivalent to the higher pay scales in the said group. For instance, the erstwhile pay scales of Rs.5000-8000, 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 were merged. The multiplication factor for pay band construction was 1.86 times of the minimum. Therefore the pay band for the pre merged pay scales was determined to begin at Rs.9300/-. Having merged, the pay band must have begun at 12,090/-, i.e. 1.86 times of 6500/- in which the other pay scales were merged.

IMPLEMENT ONE RANK ONE PENSION (OROP) SCHEME FOR THE ARMED FORCES VETERANS IMMEDIATELLY

    1. Vijay Tiwari
    2.  
    3. Petition by
      Vadodara, India
AFTER YEARS OF STRUGGLE GOVERNMENT FINALLY APPROVED THE OROP SCHEME FOR THE ARMED FOTCES VETERANS ON 17 FEB 2014. HOWEVER, EVEN AFTER FIVE MONTHS OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT THE GOVERNMENT HAS NOT IMPLEMENTED IT. THE REASON IS THAT THE BUREAUCRATS AND ACCOUNTANTS WORKING IN THE CONCERNED DEPARTMENTS OF DESW (DIRECTORATE OF EX-SERVICEMEN WELFARE) AND CGDA (COMPTROLLER GENERAL OF DEFENCE ACCOUNTS) ARE TRYING TO SCUTTLE AND UNDERMINE THE PROPOSAL. THIS IS VERY SAD AS IT DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE MORALE OF OUR ARMED FORCES WHO LAY DOWN THEIR LIFE FOR THE COUNTRY AND FELLOW COUNTRYMEN. OUR BRAVE SOLDEIRS HAVE NEVER COMPROMISED THE CALL OF DUTY WHETHER IN THE FACE OF ENEMY OR A NATURAL CALAMITY LIKE FLOODS, EARTHQUAKE. OR ANTI- TERROR OPERATIONS. HUNDREDS OF OUR SOLDEIRS DIE EVERY YEAR FIGHTING THE TERRORISTS IN KASHMIR AND OTHER AREAS.  HOWEVER, WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR WELFARE LIKE PAY, PENSION AND PERKS THE CIVILIAN BABUS TRY TO UNDERMINE THE EFFORTS AND SCUTTLE THE PROPOSALS. THERE CAN BE NO UNGRATEFUL ACT MORE SINFUL THAN THIS.
IT NEEDS TO BE NOTED HERE THAT THE BABUS AND ACCOUNTANTS WORKING IN DESW and CGDA  HAVE SUCCEEDED IN DELAYING IMPLEMENTATION OF OROP FOR VETERANS BUT HAVE HAD NO OBJECTION FOR APPROVING BUREAUCRATS TREATMENT ABROAD ALONG WITH AN ESCORT ON GOVERNMENT EXPENSES.  WHAT A PITY THIS IS HOW INDIA TAKES CARE OF SOLDEIRS AND VETERANS.
THIS DELIBERATE DELAY IS GOING TO AFFECT THE MORALE OF OUR ARMED FORCES AND WILL HAVE A LONG TERM EFFECT. OUR NATION NEEDS TO REMEMBER THEIR SACRIFICES FOR THE COUNTRY AND BE SENSITIVE TO THEIR LEGITIMATE DEMANDS.
IN VIEW OF THE ABOVE,  I HAVE STARTED THIS PETITION TO BRING THIS DELIBERATE ATTEMPTS TO DELAY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OROP TO KIND ATTENTION OF OUR PRIME MINISTER. I REQUEST ALL THE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT THIS PETITION OVERWHELMINGLY SO THAT THE ISSUE IS RESOLVED EXPEDITIOUSLY. THIS WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN UPLIFTING THE MORALE OF OUR ARMED FORCES AND RESTORE THEIR FAITH IN THE GOVERNMENT.
To:
Prime Minister 
IMPLEMENT ONE RANK ONE PENSION (OROP) SCHEME FOR THE ARMED FORCES VETERANS IMMEDIATELLY
Sincerely,

Govt to Revive Spy Networks With Better Pay and Perks

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans

NEW DELHI: The NDA government at the Centre is on a reform spree and topping its list are India’s intelligence agencies. Top sources said Union Home Ministry has prepared a proposal with the approval of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to revisit the salary structure and risk allowance of spies in Central Intelligence Agencies—Intelligence Bureau and R&AW—which was drastically reduced due to rampant red tapism plaguing the system. It is learnt that an anomaly was introduced by bureaucrats in the 5th & 6th Pay Commission which made the spies no different from a clerk working in the ministerial cadre.
The proposal suggests that “Intelligence has specific requirement and they should be treated as Special Cadre,” said a source, adding that in-principle the decision has been taken to submit the recommendation before the 7th Pay Commission.
The NDA has agreed that the function of an intelligence agency is different from other government departments and it cannot be made to work in fixed bureaucratic format drawn by bureaucrats.
Sources said that bringing the salary and other benefits of intelligence agents at par with the state police and clerks was a big mistake. The risks undertaken by spies are unmatched and the field staff is expected to work 24X7. Many of the spies have been working undercover in insurgency hit states of Jammu & Kashmir and the North-East. R&AW officials are often posted in the conflict-ridden hot zones, facing potential risk to life.
“Intelligence officials are unarmed and take risk in venturing into hazardous and conflict zones to generate inputs. R&AW agents are handling covert missions in strategically important countries. The Ministry feels the intelligence officials were also not given enough respect by comparing their salary with that of beat police and clerks in the ministerial cadre,” the source said.
It is learnt that the risk allowance in both the Intelligence Bureau and R&AW was also reduced to 15 per cent whereas Central agencies like CBI get at least 25 per cent risk allowance.
“The risk involved in IB & R&AW operations is much higher than any other agency, including CBI and police. The government will have to re-energise the agency by showing it cares for them,” an intelligence officer said adding that Intelligence Bureau had to face intense scrutiny and its cadre were completely demoralised during the ten years of UPA rule.
The government is set to substantially increase the risk allowance by placing IB & R&AW into a special category. Sources said the Centre is looking at providing comprehensive benefits, including benefit to the families of intelligence officials to ensure they are confident and motivated.
Looking back at the decision which brought disparity, a serving intelligence official said, even the benefits to the field agents, the backbone of any intelligence agency, were drastically reduced.  He further said that it takes almost 10-15 years to get an official accommodation for the officers when they are back in a metropolitan city from a dangerous posting.
Officials maintained that due to less lucrative perks and benefits, the domestic intelligence agency is facing a shortage of over 7,000 skilled professionals to generate and disseminate crucial intelligence input.  According to government figures released in 2013, IB had only 18, 795 personnel against the sanctioned strength of 26,867 officers. External spy agency R&AW has a strength of around 9,000 officers, including field agents serving on deputation. The R&AW cadre is shrinking by the day and in 2012 the agency was forced to seek the help of Department of Personnel & Training to tide over the manpower shortage.
Although, the government has allocated `1196.43 crore in the 2014-2015 budget for the IB to meet establishment-related expenditure, the amount will have to be substantially increased once the recommendation of 7th pay commision is executed by 2016.

New letter on ex-servicemen status for boarded out recruits

, by indianmilitaryveterans


This is in relation to this earlier post of 23 March 2013 on the subject of grant of ex-serviceman status to boarded-out recruits in receipt of disability pension.

The Government, by way of a clarification had only granted the said status to recruits boarded out after 01 Feb 2006, which in my opinion was incongruous and to which my objection was recorded in the following terms in the earlier post:

“...Though the subject has been clarified in the above terms, in my opinion, boarded out recruits in receipt of disability pension would ipso facto be included in the pre-existing definitions in force prior to 01 Feb 2006 too since unlike officer trainees, recruits are entitled to pay and disability pensionary benefits as applicable to regular Sepoys and are also under the purview of the Army Act and hence cannot treated differently than others. Even otherwise, the MoD clarification issued on 01 Feb 2006 did not contain any cut-off date for the applicability of the clarification which has now been superimposed through back-door...”

Thankfully, the Ministry of Defence has now issued a clarification in consistent with the view as above that boarded-out recruits in receipt of disability pension shall be treated as ex-servicemen irrespective of the date of discharge.
