Senior citizen benefits that you must know 

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Senior citizen benefits that you must know 

At 60, one is considered a senior citizen in India. Senior citizens are entitled to a multitude of financial benefits. While you can avail some benefits at 60, you also get some added benefits at 65. From time to time, the government offers senior citizens financial benefits to make their life easier. Here are a few benefits available to senior citizens in India. 

1. Interest income: 

Senior citizens are entitled to a tax exemption of Rs. 50,000 for income from fixed deposits, post office interest and savings bank accounts. 

2. Health insurance premium: 

Senior citizens get a tax exemption of Rs. 50,000 on health insurance premium under Section 80D. Exemption on medical expenditure for critical illnesses is Rs. 1 lakh for both senior citizens and super senior citizens. 

3. Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana Yojana (PMVVY): 

The PMVVY scheme was recently extended from March 2018 to March 2020. The investment is capped at Rs. 15 lakh and gives a guaranteed 8 % fixed rate of return for a period of 10 years. 

4. Senior Citizens’ Saving Scheme (SCSS): 

The SCSS scheme offers an interest rate of 8.3% per annum. Any senior citizen over the age of 60 can open the senior citizen savings scheme. If the senior citizen has retired on superannuation or VRS at 55, they can still opt for the SCSS scheme provided they open an account within a month of receipt of retirement benefits and the amount shouldn’t be more than the number of retirement benefits. 

5. Professional tax: 

In some states, resident senior citizens aged 65 and above are exempt from professional tax. 

6. Income tax: 

For senior citizens, an income of up to Rs. 3 lakh is non-taxable. For senior citizens over the age of 80, an income of up to Rs. 5 lakh is non-taxable. 

7. Travel concessions: 

Senior citizens are entitled to discounts on fares. For instance, senior citizens over the age of 60 can avail a discount of 50% on economy class for domestic travel. Women aged 58 are eligible for 50 % discount and men aged 60 and above are eligible for 40 % discount on rail fare. The concession is on all classes of Mail/Rajdhani/Jan Shatabdi/Shatabdi/Duranto/Express trains. Some state and municipal corporations also give discounts on bus fare to senior citizens. There are seats reserved for senior citizens as well. The passenger reservation system automatically allots lower berths to senior citizens subject to availability during ticket booking. 

8. Insurance policies: 

For seniors aged 60-80, national insurance offers the ‘Varishta Mediclaim Policy’ where the maximum sum insured is Rs. 1 lakh in case of hospitalization and Rs. 2 lakh for critical illnesses. LIC offers the Varishtha Pension Bima Yojana that provides assured pension for senior citizens. 

9. Subsidized phone bills: 

Senior citizens over the age of 65 can avail of BSNL connections without registration charges. They are also eligible for registration of telephone on priority. Senior citizens over the age of 65 get 25% concession on monthly service charges and installation charges for landline connections. 

10. Miscellaneous benefits: 

Senior citizens get separate queues in hospitals for registration and clinical examination. They can also avail of preferential hearing for their cases by writing to the court. Banks have separate queues for senior citizens and offer them senior citizen cards, priority services etc. 

Conclusion 

Senior citizen benefits are afforded to those over the age of 60 to make sure they aren’t burdened financially during retirement. The benefits also ensure that they don’t end up being dependent on anyone.

Widows of JCOs / OR whose husbands after retirement from Army served in DSC are not getting dual family pension.Many of the issues which could not be solved have been taken by Col Raghbir Singh.

Col Raghbir Singh was advised to send details with his recommendation of quantum of financial assistance to Charity Division of T SEWA.
Pathetic Condition of Smt Kulwant Kaur, wife of (late) Nk Kabil Singh
12.We were taken to house of Smt Kulwant Kaur in a nearby village about 10 kms from Bhogpur. Nk Kabil Singh retired from Army and was doing odd jobs earning some meagre amount to supplement his pension to sustain his family. He was blessed or burdened with six daughters and one son. He died in 2001. His eldest daughter and her husband both died in one or two years after death of Nk Kabil Singh. Two daughters got widowed and were thrown out by their in-laws. One of the widowed daughter has 15 year old son and younger widowed daughter has two children (one son and one daughter). Both the widowed daughters came back to her mother’s place with their children.  The youngest child of (late) Nk Kabil Singh was a boy who got recruited into Punjab Armed Police, Jalandhar. He during his training period used to support his mother with his monthly stipend. Unfortunately he also died in a road accident. In this family in a span four to five years from 2001, Nk Kabil Singh, his eldest daughter, three sons-in-law and one son died. Smt Kulwant Kaur now supports her two daughters and three grandchildren with her meagre family pension.
13.Video on her plight is attached.

Hav Balbir Singh, President, Garh Shankar ESM Association made all the necessary arrangements in the conference hall of PWD Office of Garh Shankar. 225 to 250 ESMs and family pensioners could attend due to limited space. The Awareness progarmme was more or less same as that organized in Bhogpur on 13 Mar 2018.
Visit to Houses of ESMs and Family Pensioners nearby Garh Shankar
17.Team T SEWA visited four families living in remote villages of Garh Shankar tehsil. Videos  showing their condition are attached.
18.Charity Division, T SEWA on getting more details and documents from Col Raghbir Singh will carry out their own deliberations and assessment of quantum of financial assistance to be given to all these families who are in destitute condition.

Col Ajit Singh Rana and self returned by Hoshiarpur – Delhi Express to Delhi on 16 Mar 2018.
Visit to Lucknow
21.Team T SEWA comprising of Brig SKS Rana, VSM, Col Ajit Singh Rana and self, arrived in Lucknow on 16 Mar 2018. We were received by Col Dharam Raj Singh,  TSEWA Coordinator for AFT Lucknow and Hav Harish Asthana, President, T SEWA, UP. Brig Amulya Mohan (Rtd), Director Sainik Welfare was kind enough to make a presentation on activities of his organization and welfare schemes launched by Govt of UP. A Minister of State is in charge of Sainik Welfare. UP has the largest number of Ex-Servicemen and family pensioners. 4,56,000 identity cards were issued to eligible ESMs and family pensioners. Lt Col Dr Bhatt, the Zilla Sainik Welfare Officer, Lucknow dist informed us that there could be few thousands or even a lakh ESMs and family pensioners who though eligible did not register with Rajya Sainik Board. The case of daughter of (late) Maj Bhatt of Kumaon Regt who was found begging on streets of Lucknow was explained. She is now employed as a sales lady in Sub Area canteen.  We were put up in Sub Area Officers’ Mess and of 15 Kumaon.
22.Visit to Col (Veterans) Madhya UP Sub Area and Col YR Sharma.  On 17 March 2018, Col Dharam Raj Singh took us to office of Col Aniruddha Wale, Col (Veterans) of Madhya UP Sub Area (MUPSA) who briefed us on the activities his organization is carrying out. His main grouse is many of ESMs are not aware that such an organization is existing for their welfare. He assured that any problems with PCDA (Pensions) Allahabad or Record Offices or CPPCs of banks will be dealt expeditiously by his office. He is responsible for resolving grievances of ESMs and Family pensioners in 14 districts out of 75 districts of UP. Col YR Sharma, a practicing advocate in AFT Lucknow and Lucknow bench of Allahabad High court promised to help ESMs and family pensioners in legal cases.
23.Dinner with 50 Retired Officers. Col Dharam Raj Singh organized a dinner on 17 Mar 2018 in Mohd Baug Club, Lucknow where in almost 50 retired officers / JCOs & OR were present. They all praised the good work being carried out by volunteers of T SEWA and promised to get more members into T SEWA. We could find five to six officers who were dedicated to the cause of ESMs and Family pensioners. They are doing silently some welfare oriented work but they lamented that there is lot of distrust between Officer Community and JCOs /OR.
Awareness Programme in Lucknow on 18 Mar 2018
24.Col Dharam Raj Singh, T SEWA Co-ordinator for AFT Lucnow with support from five to six retired officers organized an Awareness programme in function hall owned by Nk DK Shukla, an Ex-Serviceman. He charges Rs 1.25 lakhs per day to rent out his well furnished function hall in Uthrethia, Lucknow but he gave his premises free to T SEWA. The format of Awareness programme was similar to that in Punjab. Brig SKS Rana, VSM gave out details of legal cases being handled by T SEWA and as President, Legal Division. He assured T SEWA will get justice to ESMs and family pensioner at very low legal cost. I was asked to cover activities of TSEWA which I summarized as True SEWA and Timely SEWA. Question – Answer session followed. The questions were mostly on pensions, OROP which did not give anticipated increase in pension, problems being faced by non – pensioner reservists etc.
25.Why OROP Gave Less Benefit to JCOs and OR?. Col Ajit Singh Rana explained that the JCOs and OR were given enhanced pension w.e.f. Jan 2006, another rise in 2009 and third rise in Sep 2012 with the pension fixed at maximum of the scale. The OROP is only pension of those retiring in 2013. Therefore the increase in pension from Sep 2012 to calendar year 2013 of OROP has to be less for JCOs /OR. Whereas there was no such increase in pension for Officers.
26.Donation by Col Harvardhan Singh of 5 Raj Rif. Col Harsha Vardhan Singh donated Rs 25,001 to T SEWA during the awareness programme. He was kind enough to give his car Skoda Laura with driver for use by Team T SEWA for five days.
27.One to One Session for Grievance Redressal on 19 Mar 2018. Col Dharma Raj Singh organized grievance redressal session in his own house on 19 Mar 2018 followed by lunch. A number of ESMs and family pensioners came to get their individual problems resolved. Brig DM Tripathi, Hav Harish Asthana and self, listened to every one patiently to understand their problems. The main grouse is that banks are not paying correct pension. They themselves are not very clear as to what is their pension. A widow of an infantry soldier from 11 GR who died in 2001 has not been getting her family pension. She was assured that T SEWA will ensure that she will get her pension at the earliest.
28.Presentation of Mementos. Team T SEWA presented five mementos to Col Dharma Raj Singh (17 Raj Rif), Col Ram Raj Singh (15 Rajput), Col Harsha Vardhan Singh (5 Raj Rif), Brig DM Tripathi (Signals), Lt Col Hem Lohumi (102 Engr Regt) and Nk DK Shukla, function hall owner for organizing the Awareness programme so successfully. 
29.I returned to Secunderabad on 21 Mar 2018 on successful completion of Awarenes programmes in Punjab and Lucknow.  
30.Vidoes and Photos Taken During the Three Awareness Progarmmes.  These are attached. The size of video files is too large, hence the videos will be sent in six to seven mails mostly in Google Drive.
Conclusion
31.It is evidently clear that unless T SEWA goes into interior villages and meet the ESMs and family pensioners in their homes, to see how they live and to understand their grievances, very little is likely to be achieved. The Awareness programmes bring  T SEWA closer to the ESMs and family pensioners. With whatever limited funds available for charity, such visits to these remote areas will enable T SEWA to ensure financial assistance is rendered to deserving personnel.
32.T SEWA thanks innumerable members of T SEWA, non-members and civilians who contributed to charity Division to enable them to carry out philanthropic activities. It is with great amount of pride, I state T SEWA distributed Rs 7.50 lakhs as financial assistance to ESMs, Family pensioners and even to civilians during financial year 2017 – 18. With support from large hearted members of T SEWA, we hope to surpass this figure during next financial year (2018 – 19) and bring succor to many deserving ESMs and family pensioners.

Dear Friends,

Kindly read Maj Gen, SG Vombatkere letter to Secy DESW dated 25.3.2017, pasted BELOW for info.

He had also filed WP 18444/2017 in High Court of Karnataka, and obtained an order restraining the PDA (Canara Bank) from imposing Aadhaar as a pre-requisite (in his case, since it was not a PIL) for disbursing pension.

SubjectAadhaar as identity document for Defence Forces pensioners

ReferenceGazette of India Extraordinary Notification No.672 dated March 6, 2017

Sir,

1. The Notification under reference requires Defence Forces (“military”, for short) pensioners “... to furnish proof of possession of Aadhaar number or undergo Aadhaar authentication”, so as to enable pensioners to “get their entitlements directly in a convenient and seamless manner”, and “... provide [them] convenient and hassle free pension benefits ...”.

2. The present system of disbursement of military pension is through banks functioning as Pension Disbursing Authority (PDA). The PDA banks establish the identity of every military pensioner after going through previously established know-your-customer (KYC) procedures which include obtaining PAN, Proof of Identity & Proof of Address. This system is already working conveniently and seamlessly. In fact, the data used by banks for KYC is precisely the primary data which UIDAI uses to enrol a person for Aadhaar. Hence I respectfully submit that there is no need for a military pensioner to obtain Aadhaar in case he does not already possess the Aadhaar number.

3. The Notification under reference clearly expresses that military pension is a benefit; the word “benefit” in fact occurs 12 times in the Notification. Here I would respectfully like to bring to your notice that military pension is neither a benefit nor a service, but a right. In this connection, I draw your attention to the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, Civil Appellate Jurisdiction Civil Appeal No.1123 of 2015, arising out of SLP(C) No.321 of 2015. Also, paragraph 20 of the Judgment delivered on 17.12.1982 in D.S.Nakara & Others vs Union of India (WP Nos. 5939-5941 of 1980), reads as follows:

... the decision of the Constitution Bench in Deoki Nandan Prasad v. State of Bihar and Ors,

wherein this Court authoritatively ruled that pension is a right and the payment of it does not depend upon the decision of the Government but is governed by the rules, and a Government servant coming within those rules is entitled to claim pension.”

4. Further, a Constitution Bench of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India passed an Interim Order dated 15.10.2015 in W.P. (C) No.494/2012, which reads as follows:

5. We will also make it clear that the Aadhaar card scheme is purely voluntary and it cannot be made mandatory till the matter is finally decided by this Court one way or the other”.

Page 1 of 2

5. Since the matter has not as yet been finally decided by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, its Interim Order continues to remain in force. However, the Notification under reference, which reads: “An individual eligible to receive the pension benefits is hereby required to furnish proof of possession of Aadhaar number or undergo Aadhaar authentication”, makes Aadhaar enrolment obligatory and not voluntary. Thus, the Notification under reference is in violation of the above quoted Interim Order of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, and in contempt of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India.

6. In view of the foregoing, I request you to immediately issue a fresh Gazette of India Notification cancelling the Notification under reference, and resuming status quo ante until the matter is finally heard and decided by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India.

Yours faithfully,


Major General S.G.Vombatkere

Indian defence forces out of funds, won't sustain 10-day war, says Parliam

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


Image for representation (Reuters)
Image for representation (Reuters)
Parliament Standing Committee has said in its report that the Indian Army, Air Force and Navy does not have enough funds to buy new weapons systems required to fight a 10 day intense war, pay for liabilities already committed to or meet its recurring expenditures.
Deposing before the committee of the Parliament, the Vice Chief of Army Staff Sarath Chand has said, "Funds allocated is insufficient and the army is finding it difficult to even stock arms, ammunition, spares for 10 day intensive war. All the three services are expected to be prepared for at least 10 days of intense battle."
General Chand has told the committee that allocation of Rs 21,338 crore for modernisation is insufficient. Paying for liabilities carried over the previous year 2017 will hardly leave any funds for new schemes (acquisition of new weapon systems) in 2018-19.
ARMY
Recently, to cut the red-tape and speed-up the process of acquisition the government has allowed the Vice-Chief of Army Staff make emergency purchases of Rs 14,000 crore.
Shockingly, the committee found that no separate allocation was made in this regard. The money has to be allocated from within the Army's Budget, thereby leaving no choice but to re-prioritize expending the budgetary resources by way of going slow on some planned acquisitions, reducing the spending etc.
The committee has found that little has been achieved to protect military installations and bases that are increasingly under attack from Pakistan based terrorist.
The committee has said that government needs to move beyond inquiries and policy announcements and make tangible progress.
"The Committee cannot help expressing unhappiness with the state of affairs in the Ministry with regard to existing scenario of 'perimeter security' of defence establishments and installations, including offshore establishments. The Sunjuwan attack underscores the need for speedy measures," the committee said.
The shortfall of funds for army alone has shortfall is staggering Rs 42,512.14 crore.
"Keeping in view the increasing threat perception, which includes various occurrences of external strife and internal dissidence such as Doklam, increased external activities in Tibet over a year, rampant cross border firing, militant activities etc the current budget is not supportive to the inevitable needs of the Army," the committee observed.
NAVY
Similarly the Navy has been allocated only 70 per cent of the funds that it had asked for. Against a projected need of of Rs 11,320.39 crore, the allocation has only been to the extent of Rs 7,985.06 crore.
The Committee observed that the allocation amounts to an increase of only Rs 220 crore over Revised Estimate of 2017-18, which works out to a rise of only 2.84 per cent.
The committee after consulting the Indian Navy has said that the increase would not even cater to the inflationary pressure. Matters such as maintaining the requisite armament level as well as emergency procurements would indeed require more funds.
Interestingly, the Committee has found that the Budget has also not factored in the impact that GST will have on the naval expenditure.
The Parliamentary committee has said the Indian Navy has been given only Rs 20,003.71 crore for modernization and new weapon platforms whereas the Navy wanted at least of Rs 33,458.38 crore for the capital segment, the allocation made has been Rs 20,003.71 crore. And, shockingly, it is Rs 5000 crore short when it comes to paying for committed liabilities-liabilities that have incurred in previous years to be paid in the current financial year.
This amounts to a huge shortfall of almost 40 per cent of the budget projected as required and "will indeed have a cascading impact on the operational preparedness and technological upgradation of the Navy"
AIR FORCE
The government has provided for either GST or export duties that are now levied on the equipment bought from abroad. There would be an additional burden of taxes due to the new taxation laws.
On this count, the Committee have gathered that in 2016-17 the customs duty paid was to the tune of Rs 943.62 crore, which has since hiked up to Rs 1,614.28 crore in 2017-18.
"This amount has not been reimbursed to the Air Force during the year," the committee has observed.
Like the other two services that IAF too is severely cash strapped. The committee has found that IAF is short by at at least Rs 6,400 crore when it comes budgeted revenue expenditure.
While the IAF had asked for Rs 1,14,526 crore only Rs 65,891 crore have been allocated. In a scathing remark the committee says the budget does not reflect the intent of achieving even the strategic objectives.

7th Pay Commission – Govt Mulling To Review The Salary Of Central Government Employeeser Evy Year

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans

7th Pay Commission – Govt Mulling To Review The Salary Of Central Government Employeeser Evy Year

In the latest development related to the implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations, the government is reportedly considering automatic pay revision mechanism to keep salary and allowances of central government employees in balance with prices in the market. Finance Ministry officials involved in process of implementing recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission or 7th CPC said under this mechanism salary and allowances will be hiked when DA will rise above 50 percent.
The government is mulling not to form any Pay Commission for increasing salaries and allowances after the 7th Pay Commission. This was also suggested by the 7th Pay Commission when it submitted its recommendations to the government. The government should review the salary of central government employees every year rather than forming new pay commission after the long period of ten years, said the 7th Pay Commission. Instead of forming new central pay commission after the 7th Pay Commission, the government may revise salaries and allowances when DA crosses 50 per cent.
“The government is likely to want to take decisions on raising central government employees’ salaries and allowances when DA will rise above 50 per cent,” Finance Ministry officials hinted. “The government’s objective is to keep central government employees salaries and allowances in balance with prices in the market,” they added. They said the government will discontinue the practice of appointing pay commissions in future to suggest salary structure and other perks for all central government employees and pensioners.
Earlier in an interview, Justice AK Mathur, who led the 7th Pay Commission, said, “The government should review the salary of central government employees every year looking into the data available to it and based on the price index.” The salaries of central government employees can be reviewed on the basis of the Aykroyd formula which takes into consideration the changes prices of the commodities that constitute a common man’s basket. The Labour Bureau at Shimla reviews these changing prices of commodities periodically.
It simply means the government need not wait for ten years and form a pay commission to review salary and pension of the central government employees. Any changes required regarding pay and allowances would be made considering inflation after every year.
Serious consideration of abolition of any more pay commission by the government is coming forth, however the government still has not cleared the cloud which the finance minister promised to consider, i.e., CG employees demand for hike in fitment factor.

Increase of fitment factor and minimum pay for Central employees - real picture

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans.

Many websites/blogs and a section of media is being flooded with possible increase of minimum pay and fitment factor for central Govt. employees for a considerable long period of time.

Some of these agencies even declared the date of effect as 1st April 2018. As per their prediction,

1. Fitment factor to be increased from 2.57 to 3 

2. Minimum pay to be hiked from Rs 18,000 to 21/26,000

3. The hike will be effective only for employees upto level 5


But as per reply given by Minister of State (Finance) in Rajya Sabha on 6th March 2018, Govt. is not considering any change in these issues. So , we urge our viewers not to be misguided and expect any betterment in pay as of now.

1170 . Shri Neeraj Shekhar

(a) whether Government is actively contemplating to increase minimum pay from Rs.18,000/- to Rs.21,000/- and fitment factor from 2.57 to 3, in view of resentment among Central Government employees over historically lowest increase in pay by 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC);

(b) if so, the details thereof and the date from which it would be implemented; and

MINISTER OF STATE FOR FINANCE ( SHRI P RADHAKRISHNAN )

(a),(b)&(c ): The minimum pay of Rs.18,000/- p.m. and fitment factor of 2.57 are based on the specific recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in the light of the relevant factors taken into account by it. Therefore, no change therein is at present under consideration.

Linking of Aadhar with various services : Deadline extended by Supreme Court

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Linking of Aadhar with various services : Deadline extended by Supreme Court

SC extends March 31 deadline of Aadhaar linking till it gives its order

New Delhi, Mar 13 (PTI) The Supreme Court on Tuesday extended the March 31 deadline for linking Aadhaar with various services till the five-judge constitution bench delivers its judgement on petitions challenging the validity of the biometric scheme and the enabling law

A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra had on March 7 said it may not be possible to decide by March 31 the batch of petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the Aadhaar Act

The bench, which also comprised justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, had earlier said that since the matter would have implications on financial institutions, like banks and stock exchange, it would create a huge problem of compliance if the deadline was extended at the last moment

On December 15 last year, the apex court had extended till March 31 the deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar with various services and welfare schemes

Former Karnataka High Court judge Justice K S Puttaswamy had told the apex court on February 22 that several deaths had reportedly taken place due to starvation on account of glitches in the Aadhaar-based public distribution system and the court must consider granting them compensation

Earlier, the top court had observed that the alleged defect of citizens' biometric details under the Aadhaar scheme being collected without any law could be cured by subsequently bringing in a statute

It had said that the Centre came out with the law in 2016 to negate the objection that it was collecting data since 2009 without any authorisation, but the issue which needed consideration was what would happen if the data collected earlier, had been compromised.

7th Pay Commission: Latest news today 2018 – Long wait likely to end finally! Pay hike from April

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Indian Military Veterans


7th Pay Commission latest news today 2018: Putting an end to the long wait, Central government staff are likely to get a hike in their salaries from next month. As promised by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in 2016, the Centre is likely to hike salaries.

7th Pay Commission: The government is likely to increase the pay with effect from April

 7th Pay Commission latest news today 2018: The government is likely to increase the pay with effect from April
7th Pay Commission latest news today 2018: Putting an end to long wait, Central government staff are likely to get a hike in their salaries from next month. As promised by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in 2016, the Centre is likely to hike salaries of lower-level Central government employees as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations from April. Staff deriving salaries from pay matrix level 1 to five will see a salary hike.
As per reports, the NDA government is planning to increase the minimum pay from Rs 18,000 to Rs 21,000.
The fitment factor is also set to increase from 2.57 times to 3.00 times, as per the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. However, the Central government employees have demanded a spike in the fitment factor to 3.68 times, contrary to the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission or 7CPC, which recommends the fitment factor to be raised three times.
It is also important to add that the increase will differ based on the pay matrix level. This is said to be government’s conscious effort to reduce the income disparity between the high-end and low-level government employees. Thereby, the already well-paid employees may not reap beyond ordinary benefits. Notably, in order to shrink the uneven income, the finance ministry, on February 12, had directed the merger of all Group B officers with Group C staff cadres of all Directorates under Central Board of Excise and Customs. This was seen as a pioneer attempt to merge the officers with the staff cadres. In order to resolve the issue of pay anomalies, the Narendra Modi-led NDA government has formed National Anomaly Committee (NAC) in September 2016.
7th Pay Commission in Tripura!
Meanwhile, newly-elected Chief Minister of Tripura, Biplab Deb Kumar has announced that the Tripura government will constitute an expert committee to see for the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for the state government employees. It is worth mentioning here that BJP has promised to implement the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission in the state during its election campaign.
The announcement by Tripura CM comes a week after Gujarat state government announced 7th Pay Commission benefits for about 8.77 lakh people ( over 4.65 lakh Gujarat government employees and more than 4.12 lakh pensioners). Reportedly, the Vijay Rupani led Gujarat government will start to pass out these benefits to employees from this month onwards.
