Removal of Grade Pay System in 7th Pay Commission –

, by indianmilitaryveterans

A detailed report Will the removal of Grade Pay System by the 7th Pay Commission help Central Government employees? – This is the topic of this article.  “Unconfirmed reports say that the 7th Pay Commission is very likely to recommend the abolishing of the Grade Pay System introduced by the 6th Pay Commission.” Not only the Government, but the Central Government employees too are hoping and wishing that the 7th Pay Commission functions independently, free from interventions. The report of the previous Pay Commissions will guide for determining the revision of pay scale and pay bands, allowances, retirement benefits and other facilities/benefits of more than 50 lakh employees. The Pay Commission also considers the recommendations, suggestions and inputs gathered from employees all over the country and presented as memorandums by federations like the NC JCM and the Confederation.  There is no rule that the new Pay Commission has to follow the same methodology and determination followed by the previous Pay Commissions. Therefore, one cannot state for sure that the 7th Pay Commission will tow the guidelines issued by the 6th or the 5th Pay Commission while deciding the new pay scale and pay bands. One has to keep in mind the fact that the 6th Pay Commission was radically different from the recommendations and guidelines issued by the 5th Pay Commission. One has to also remember that a number of industry experts, who predicted the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission based on the trends of the previous Pay Commission, were proved completely wrong. If one Pay Commission has the right to recommend the splitting of the Pay Scale into two, the next Pay Commission has all the powers to completely abolish the system. But, this is not the issue! Will the Central Government employees benefit by the removal of the Grade Pay system? This is the question now. It will definitely be beneficial. Here are the reasons why. It is unacceptable that a promotion, which comes after waiting for many years, brings with it an increment of just Rs.100. None has until now accepted the splitting of the promotional hierarchy, which had been followed for years, into two. The anomalies that prevailed due to the ‘Grade Pay Hierarchy’ which was introduced under the MACP promotional system, still remain unresolved. When the discussions and debates on MACP system continued to grow unabated during the NC JCM Anomaly Committee meeting, it was decided that a separate meeting ought to be held to analyze this issue. Most of the individual requests from the Central Government employees this time are about the MACP promotional system. The reason is the Grade Pay structure introduced by the 6th Pay Commission. And also can list out many reasons to abolish the Grade Pay System.

Aadhaar number made compulsory in all government service records

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Aadhaar number made compulsory in all government service records The Central Government had issued the following orders from time to time regarding aading the Aadhaar number in Service Reocords of Central Government Employees. The Honourable Supreme Court of India had already clarified that Aadhaar numbers cannot be made compulsory for Indian citizens. But the Centre had argued that Aadhaar numbers are necessary for its welfare schemes. The case is pending in the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, without declaring that Aadhaar numbers are compulsory for all, the central government has made it compulsory for enjoying the various benefit schemes that are being offered. This has led to a debate if the centre is indirectly twisting the arms of the citizens to obtain the Aadhaar number. In the meantime, an order was issued by the finance minister of the Delhi state government on Tuesday. It said that in order to speed up the pension distribution and salary due payments, certain new clauses have been added to Form 5. Since the order issued in this regard by the Ministry of Labour Welfare and Training is applicable to the employees of all the state and union territory governments, the employees of Delhi state government too are bound by it. Until now, the pensions for the employees of Delhi state government were given at the Accounts Auditor’s office of the Ministry of Finance. It has now been made compulsory for all the Delhi state government employees to submit their Aadhaar numbers. Hence, orders have been issued to all the employees to add their Aadhaar numbers to their Service Records. The Department of Exchequer of the Ministry of Finance had issued an order on June 2, in which, just stopping short of saying that Aadhaar card is compulsory for all, it laid emphasis on possessing the Aadhaar number. That is, as part of the Digital India plan, and for the issuing of digital life certificate to government employees, the government is forced to take certain steps. In order to facilitate these, employees have to now submit their PAN Cards, Aadhaar numbers, email ID and cellphone numbers in their pension book records. A number of accounts department in various offices do not bother to confirm if the employees possess Aadhaar cards. The order says that the offices must insist that the employees present their Aadnaar number when they begin to draw their pensions. Source: www.cgstaffnews.in

Now paramilitary personnel on warpath for OROP

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Retired paramilitary forces personnel on Monday launched their agitation at Delhi's Jantar Mantar demanding parity with defence forces whose demands of One Rank One Pension (OROP) has been principally accepted by the Modi government. "We have formed our coordination committee today that will take a decision what course we need to take after three days of dharna," said vice chairman of the coordination committee, SPS Malik, who retired as second in command rank from BSF. Retired paramilitary forces personnel on Monday launched their agitation at Delhi's Jantar Mantar demanding parity with defence forces whose demands of One Rank One Pension (OROP) has been principally accepted by the Modi government. "We have formed our coordination committee today that will take a decision what course we need to take after three days of dharna," said vice chairman of the coordination committee, SPS Malik, who retired as second in command rank from BSF. Though the All India Central Paramilitary Forces and Ex-servicemen Welfare Association does not boast of membership of all retired paramilitary forces personnel, it claims that the stir is being supported by most retired personnel belonging to the six paramilitary forces – CRPF, BSF, CISF, SSB, ITBP and Assam Rifles - as well as those in service. "We are doing duties 24X7 the year round unlike the Army that gets ample time to rest. It is because of us the Army gets time to recuperate and maintain high degree of training. We fight shoulder to shoulder with Army in times of war and during peace keep deployed in dangerous counter insurgency operations against Naxals, insurgents and terrorists. We lose more men than the Army then why we should be given parity?" questioned Malik. "Our major demands to the government are granting of OROP to paramilitary veterans on the lines of Army personnel, exemption of serving troops from contributory pension scheme and extending full benefits to these forces under the ex-servicemen category," said Association's national general secretary, PS Nair. Serving a warning to the government, President of the Association, RB Pathak said that the agitation will intensify in the coming days and they will hold a big rally early next year if there was no positive communication from the government. Asserting that there was no difference between the Army and them as organised forces as both are recognised as "Armed Forces" under Article 246 of the Constitution, the association has also demanded keeping their original nomenclature central paramilitary forces (CPMF) that was changed under a "design" to central armed police forces CAPF) during the tenure of UPA government.
