A concise introduction of pay commissions for CG Employees

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
Central Pay Commissions and Central Government Employees…
Generally, Central Government Employees who works in different ministries and departments under the Central Government, play major roles in the smooth functioning of the country. Employees under different departments work so hard to maintain law and order, stabilizing the economy, security to the people and defending our nation from enemies. Even though they are not large in numbers, their work during major crisis like natural calamities, earthquake and floods, stands apart. They are even asked to work 24 hours a day on all working days during emergencies. Our Defence Forces have done breathtaking efforts and marvellous work to evacuate Indian citizens from foreign countries which are under civil wars. They are bold enough to cross the border of our neighbouring country to fight against terrorists who had earlier ambushed and killed our security forces. Everyone must be proud of our defence forces for their bravery and skills.
Students after completing their tough academic career in different streams, keeps their first preference to get a government job. Though the pay packages are lower than multinational companies, they think that government jobs give more security to them.
As everyone knows that the pay and allowances for the central government employees are fixed by the central government as per the recommendations of Central Pay Commissions (CPCs). The central government constitutes Pay Commissions by appointing highly placed personalities as Chairman and Members. The commission then studies the economic conditions, day today difficulties of employees, their ideas etc., and give its recommendations to revise pay packages for the employees in every ten years. The commission submits its recommendations to the central government and the government in turn, takes final decision to implement the Pay Commission. Usually, the commission is given 18 months time to submit its report on the recommendations on pay revision:
PAY COMMISSIONS:
The First Pay Commission was appointed on May 1946, and it submitted its report in May 1947.
The Second CPC was appointed on August 1957, and it submitted its report in August 1959.
The Third CPC was appointed on April 1970, and it submitted its report in March 1973.
The Fourth CPC was appointed on June 1983, and three reports were submitted in June 1986, December 1986 and May 1987 respectively.
The Fifth CPC was appointed on April 1994, and submitted its report in January 1997.
The Sixth CPC was appointed on October 2004, and submitted its report in March 2008.
SEVENTH PAY COMMISSION:
The Seventh Central Pay Commission was constituted on the 28th of February 2014 under the Chairmanship of Justice Shri Ashok Kumar Mathur, Shri Vivek Rae as full time member and Smt. Meena Aggarwal as Secretary. The Commission has been given 18 months from the date of its constitution to make its recommendations.
From the date of its constitution, the commission travelled all over the country meeting different delegates, officers, trade union leaders, associations, employees etc., under different departments to take stock of the economic conditions faced by the employees and the impact of rising prices of essential commodities on them.
Finally, the Chairman of the 7th CPC in their final meeting with the National Council JCM, has said that Commission will submit its report to the central government in September 2015. Points regarding the implementation of the 7th CPC were discussed. The Chairman denied any proposal to implement the recommendations from 01.01.2014 and said that the revised pay structures and recommendations will be implemented from 01.01.2016.
Let us hope for the best!!!

Kerala pay commission likely to boost salary 13%

, by indianmilitaryveterans


The Kerala Pay Revision Commission is likely to recommend Rs 16,000 as the minimum salary and Rs 1 lakh as the maximum for state government employees. Salaries will go up 13 per cent when the dearness allowance of 80 per cent is merged into it. There was a 12 per cent increase in the previous pay revision.
The previous pay commission had recommended a minimum salary of Rs 8,500 and a maximum of Rs 59,840.

The 10th pay commission, headed by Justice N. Ramachandran Nair, is also likely to include measures to increase efficiency in proportion to the pay rise. The commission may submit its report before June 30, when its term ends.
The commission will base its recommendations on the increase in everyday essential commodities and the Consumer Price Index in the last five years. The pay rise, however, will be limited by the budgetary allocation of Rs 6,000 crore. The state government budget was strained by Rs 3,000 crore with the previous pay revision.
The report is also expected to have a recommendation for providing medical insurance for government employees in association with public sector insurance companies, in place of the current system where the government is paying the bill.
The commission’s recommendations would affect employees of the state government and local self-government bodies, teachers in government and government-aided schools and colleges and university employees.
Kerala government is spending about 75 per cent of its revenue on salaries and pensions, on an average.

Why OROP is delayed ? Find the possible answer

, by indianmilitaryveterans


MoD sources said that the main reason behind the delay is the minuscule increase that jawans may get if OROP is implemented in its present form. 
As ex-servicemen steadfastly press for the implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP), top Ministry of Defence (MoD) sources have said that the main reason behind the delay is not funds, but the minuscule increase that jawans may get if OROP is implemented in its present form.
Sources said that the concern within the government is that the jawans may get an increase of just about “few hundred” rupees per month — a raise that may not justify the decade long OROP agitation
.
The fear within political decision-makers is that OROP, if implemented in present form, may result in many dragging the government to courts, and may even create a political crisis. “It is no longer a budgetary concern. The formula to arrive at Rs 8,300-odd crores has already been approved. The real worries within South Block are political. Under the present formula, the jawans may just get about few hundred rupees of increase per month in their present pensions. This amount, the political class within the present government believes, is too small to pacify the agitation that has been spread over almost three decades,” a top Defence Ministry official said.
According to the official, the implementation — which is just short of being announced any moment, may trigger dissatisfaction and will result in soldiers dragging the government to courts and become a political issue. Citing the reason behind the small increase for jawans, the official said: “The government, in 2009, corrected the pensions of retired armed forces personnel to parity as per Sixth Central Pay Commission. The jawans largely benefited out of the correction as the pension amounts increased. So the gap that earlier existed has largely been bridged. Rs 5000 crore has already been spent on bringing about the parity,” the official said. According to Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM) data, OROP — if implemented in its present form — will ensure an increase of between Rs 525 and Rs 1,720 to jawans in their monthly pensions by virtue of percentage of their low basic pensions. Widows will get a hike of Rs 1,500 per month. The officers are likely to get a per month pension increase between Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000. According to sources, UPA too was worried about the political and legal consequences of these “relatively small” monthly increments after implementing OROP and had carried out “three rounds of equalisation” to work out a solution. The MoD official said that so far, the present government, though committed, has not carried out any such equalisation. Group Captain V K Gandhi, general secretary, IESM said, “Our present demands have been agreed upon not only by officers but even by jawans. We are not willing to accept any dilution in the demands.”

BABUS HAVE SUCEEDED IN FOOLING THE FM ABOUT OROP and IN TURN THE PRIME MINISTER

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans
REPORT MY SIGNAL
28 Jun 2015
Dear Veterans,
Jai Hind.

The email below, from Lt Gen SK Bahri, will shock all the veterans.

I personally feel that the RM is giving Defence Services and the ESM maximum possible support; the obstructions are the Babus, The FM and miss guided by them The PM. We should now think in terms of bringing the PM online by repeatedly reminding him of his pre-election and post election promises; he should sort out the FM and his Babus.

Please do not forget – one of the Defence Secretaries, more than a decade ago, had said “OROP over my dead body”. All Babus now think on the same line. Babus will stoop down to any extent to fool misguide the FM and PM about OROP.

Subject: Fw: Important Caution to Military Veterans and Service HQ handling OROP with Government

Dear Mr Defence Minister,

Reference the trailing mail from Brig Mahalingam.

A few days ago a team, including me, from IESM met the FM due to the kind courtesy of Gen VK Singh. Col Rajyavardhan Rathore was also present. During this meeting the FM came up with the suggestion of a base pension for each rank and an additional amount for each year of service, in lieu of OROP. We asked him as to how and who will fix the base pensions, to which he said that the 7th CPC could do it. He also offered that he would accept a retd Lt Gen as a member in the CPC. We insisted that this should not be done, as firstly, pensions as per the Koshyari Committee be paid from 1/4/14 till the award of 7th CPC is announced. Thereafter, the salaries of the serving personnel may be fixed by the 7th CPC and consequently our pensions will follow as per rules. We would however, like that the 7th CPC restores the differential of pension as existing prior to 3rd CPC, which affects the largest number of ESM. The increase of civilian pensions without a corresponding increase in our pensions was patently unjustified and against all norms of justice.

Secondly, as the FM had offered to include an officer from the Services, I feel we should push for it even though it is late. The advantage would be that we could be warned by him of any underhand deals being done by the bureaucrats, to our disadvantage. We should also insist that we be not classified asshudras and be equated with the Class A services. You being the appointed guardian of the Defence Forces have a duty towards them, which you have been executing very well so far. So please continue.

Thirdly, the demand of CAPF is a red herring intended to muddy the waters, so that the government can put hurdles in resolving the issue of OROP.

With warm regards.

Important Caution to Mil Veterans & Service HQ handling OROP with Babus
 
Dear All,

"Military Pension" is a concept devised by the bureaucracy with some intent. The concept must be viewed with caution by the leaders of the Veteran’s community presently engaged with the Government on the issue of OROP.

As it seems, the nomenclature of the proposal suggests that the Government is likely to lay down a Pension Band like the present Pay Band. The point that is likely to be missed out is, equating the pension of the Veterans of the past with the pensions of soldiers retiring from service today with equivalent rank and service. As a result the Pension Band is likely to be much below the Pension applicable to personnel of the same rank and length of service retiring today.  The implication would be, even if the pension band, say for a Brigadier retiring with 25 years of service is Rs 2000 per month with an increase of Rs 25 for every 6 months increase in service, it would fit in with the definition of OROP. In other words, the Pension Bands may be delinked from Last Pay Drawn.

The bureaucracy may be banking on cashing on this interpretation to circumvent OROP.Once announced the Government will go whole hog to mislead the general public to claim that the Veteran’s demands have been fully met as the pension from then on would be same for persons of the same rank with same service irrespective of their date of retirement. 

It appears to me that instigated claims of CAPFs demanding OROP, the JCOs and OR getting less increase due to OROP etc. are being generated to create friction amongst ranks and files of the army as well as the Veteran’s community. It would also enable the Government to create a belief amongst the civil population that OROP indeed is a complicated process. On this very pretext of allegedly being able to examine the issue of OROP comprehensively to include CAPF and other Police Forces, the issue may be palmed off to 7th CPC. The larger aims and approach of the Government (read bureaucracy) explains the delay in implementing OROP. 
If you study this carefully, it may be a sinister plan something similar to the 3rd CPC. This will reduce the pension of the present retirees delinked from their Last Pay Drawn. In the long run, the pensions of the Defence Community will be hit very hard.

The purpose of writing this mail is to caution those handling the issue including the Service HQ of the likely pit falls. Even after the Government makes the announcements, the experts from the Veteran’s community and the Service Headquarters need to study the letter carefully before claiming success or expressing happiness over the issue.


We should remember how the Rank Pay was skirted even after the Government letter was issued.

Incidentally, along with OROP, we need to insist that a rep from each service and the Veteran’s community need to be included in the committee working out the details of the scheme. It is time the Service HQ and the Veteran’s community also insists that similar representation is accepted in the 7th CPC before it is too late to mend things.

I sincerely hope and pray that my assessment is totally wrong and misconceived. I would be happy if the Government proves me wrong by implementing OROP, the way it was conceived and perceived.

Regards,

Brigadier V Mahalingam (Retired)
