PFRDA to organise National Pension System service fortnight from February 1

PFRDA to organise National Pension System service fortnight from February 1

"In order to ensure availability of information and ease problem, PFRDA and NSDL/CRA send various communications regularly to promote awareness regarding NPS.

The activities scheduled to be taken up during the fortnight (Feb 1-15), include updating subscriber details, printing of transaction statement for the subscribers, resolving grievances and addressing issues of pending exit/withdrawals under NPS.

PFRDA will organise a service fortnight from February 1 for building subscribers awareness and disseminate information regarding National Pension System (NPS) - the government's flagship pension programme. According to the Pension Fund and Regulatory Development Authority (PFRDA), subscribers and employees of the central and state governments are not fully aware about NPS which leads to a large number of queries and grievances.

"In order to ensure availability of information and ease problem, PFRDA and NSDL/CRA send various communications regularly to promote awareness regarding NPS.

"However, it has been observed that in absence of latest contact details in their NPS accounts, most of the subscribers are not receiving such communication," the regulator said.

Therefore, during the awareness fortnight at offices of central and state governments, besides sharing information, nodal offices and the subscribers will be apprised about the need of updating their personal data to enable the system to work effectively.

The activities scheduled to be taken up during the fortnight (Feb 1-15), include updating subscriber details, printing of transaction statement for the subscribers, resolving grievances and addressing issues of pending exit/withdrawals under NPS.

PFRDA said the central ministries and state governments will be required to encourage the subscribers attached to them for downloading mobile apps. The maximum number of downloads of the app will be awarded.

The regulator said that downloading of mobile app by the subscribers will considerably reduce the dependence on the nodal officers.

"This will result in saving time and efforts of the nodal officers," it said. As on November 30, 2016 there were about 1.4 crore subscribers under NPS with over Rs 1.61 lakh crore asset under management.

7th Pay Commission: Will BJP pay the price for not implementing 7CPC before Assembly polls?

7th Pay Commission: Will BJP pay the price for not implementing 7CPC before Assembly polls?

The state governments, especially those ruled by opposition parties, used the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as an effective tool to woo voters ahead of Assembly polls.

New Delhi, Jan 16: Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government approved the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission in June last year. It’s been six months and the Modi government is yet implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. However the state governments, especially those ruled by opposition parties, used the 7th Pay Commission recommendations as an effective tool to woo voters ahead of Assembly polls. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his Uttarakhand counterpart Harish Rawat outsmarted the Modi government on implementation of the 7th Pay Commission ahead of Assembly elections in their states. Will the BJP pay the price for not implementing the 7th Pay Commission before Assembly polls?

The Assembly Elections will be held in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur in the first quarter of the year. Of the five states, three - Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa - have announced they will implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. While Uttar Pradesh is governed by Samajwadi Party, Uttarakhand in under Congress rule. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is in power in Goa.

When the demonetisation drive of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was making headlines in December last year, Chief Minister Harish Rawat led Uttarakhand government announced it will implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. Uttarakhand was the first to implement the 7th Pay Commission's recommendations. With the populist announcement, Harish Rawat hopes to fight anti-incumbency in the state.

Similarly, Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav announced implementation of the 7th Pay Commission on December 13 last year, months before the crucial Assembly polls. The implementation of the 7th Pay Commission is likely to benefit more than 21 lakh state government employees, teachers and pensioners. The move is being seen by many as an attempt to offer sops to the government employees ahead of the crucial state assembly polls in 2017.

Goa, where the ruling BJP is fighting with Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, also announced it will implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations before the model code of conduct came into force on January 4.

With pay hike decision under the 7th Pay Commission, the parties holding power in poll-bound states are trying to influence about 28 lakh employees and pensioners, and their dependents during the upcoming polls. On the other hand, the Modi government lost this battle politically as the model code of has come into force. It means the Modi government cannot announce the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission before March 8, by when the assembly polls would be over and budget presented.

7th Pay Commission: Good news for autonomous bodies as government may give them salary hike, but with conditions

7th Pay Commission: Good news for autonomous bodies as government may give them salary hike, but with conditions

The finance ministry has also made arrangements for those autonomous body employees who do not meet these criteria to get salaries as per the revised pay scale.

The Ministry of Finance has come up with some good news for employees of autonomous bodies that are present under various departments and ministries of the Central government: These workers will get benefits of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) although there is a string of conditions attached to the implementation.

These employees have expressed frustration in the past saying their wages have not been increased despite repeated assurances since the middle of last year. They were also disappointed over the news that their dues could get delayed further due to various reasons.

Now, the Ministry of Finance has said in a memorandum that the employees of these autonomous bodies - which are expected to be "financially self-sufficient" so as not to burdent the state exchequer - may get a revised pay scale as per the part of their salaries that deals with allowances, including dearness, house-rent and transport.

According to the ministry's memorandum, the allowances of these employees can be increased in correlation with the pay panel recommendations only on the following three conditions:

1. The "conditions of service" of employees of an autonomous body, in particular those that pertain to work hours and over-time payment, are same as to those of the Central government employees.

2. The revised pay scale will also apply to those who opt for the aforementioned "conditions of service."

3. The pension and provident fund deductions of these employees will happen on the basis of their revised pay structure.

Payments on other components of the salary will be revised to the CPC recommendations, said the memorandum. For other autonomous body employees

For employees of autonomous bodies, the working conditions of which do not match those of Central government employees, the ministry has proposed setting up of a group of officers for each autonomous body - with the departmental or ministerial financial advisor acting as the finance ministry's representative - to determine whether and how much of an increase these employees will get. Of course, their recommendations will be implemented only after the ministry approves it.
The memorandum added: "The Central government has not taken any decision so far in regard to various allowances based on the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Central government employees and, therefore, until further orders the existing allowances in the autonomous organisations shall continue to be admissible as per the existing terms and conditions, irrespective of the revised pay scales having been adopted."

7th Pay Commission Pay revision - List of Central Government Autonomous Bodies covered by Finance Ministry Orders

7th Pay Commission Pay revision - List of Central Government Autonomous Bodies, Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies, etc., covered by Finance Ministry Orders

After a long wait Govt has issued orders for implementation of 7th Pay Commission Pay revision in the form of guidelines to the Autonomous Bodies.

The recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, to the employees of the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies, etc., Set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, where pattern of emolument structure, i.e. pay scales and allowances, in particular Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance, are identical to those in case of the Central Government employees, has been considered by the Government and it has been decided that the revised pay scales as per the Pay Matrix, as contained in Part-A of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 as well as the principle of pay fixation as contained in the said rules, may be extended to the employees of such organizations

As per the orders issued by Finance Ministry on 13.01.2017, While Part A of 7th Pay Commission (Revised) Pay Rules 2016, will be straightaway applicable to Autonomous Bodies employees viz., Revision of existing pay as per New 7th CPC Pay Matrix, Part B and C of Rules viz., upgradation existing grade pay before 7th Pay Commission Pay revision for certain cadres may not be applicable automatically.

Government employees need not file asset details under Lokpal for now

Government employees need not file asset details under Lokpal for now

New Delhi: The Centre has extended indefinitely the deadline to file details of assets and liabilities by central government employees under a mandatory provision of Lokpal Act.

A new format and fresh set of rules are being finalised by the government in this regard.
The last date for filing such details was December 31.

"There is no requirement for filing of declarations of assets and liabilities by public servants now. The government is in the process of finalising a fresh set of rules. The said rules will be notified in due course to prescribe the form, manner and timelines for filing of declaration of assets and liabilities by the public servants under the revised provision of the said (Lokpal) Act.

"All public servants will henceforth be required to file the declarations as may be prescribed by the fresh set of rules," an order issued by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
There are about 50.68 lakh central government employees.

As per rules, notified under the Lokpal Act, every public servant shall file declaration annually pertaining to his assets and liabilities as on March 31 every year or on or before July 31 of that year.
For 2014, the last date for filing returns was September 15. It was first extended till December, then till April 30, 2015 and third extension was up to October 15. The date was again extended to April 15, 2016 and then July 31 for filing of the returns.

The last date was further extended till December 31 after Parliament had passed a bill to amend the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013.

The declarations under the Lokpal law are in addition to similar ones filed by the employees under various services rules.

The DoPT had last year also issued an order bringing NGOs receiving more than Rs one crore in government grants and donations above Rs 10 lakh from abroad under the ambit of the Lokpal.
The order had mandated filing of returns of the assets and liabilities by such organisations and their executives - director, manager, secretary or any other officer.

7th Pay Commission Pay Revision for Autonomous bodies - Finmin Orders

7th Pay Commission Pay Revision for Autonomous bodies - Finmin Orders

AUTONOMOUS BODY'S PAY REVISION ORDERS ISSUED

Pay revision of employees of Quasi-Government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up by and funded/controlled by the Central Government - Guidelines

F.No.1/1/2016-E.III(A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
New Delhi, 13th January, 2017
Office Memorandum

Subject: Pay revision of employees of Quasi-Government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up by and funded/controlled by the Central Government - Guidelines
The employees working in the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies etc. set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, are not Central Government employees and, therefore, the benefits implemented by Central Government in respect of Central Government employees as part of their service conditions, are not directly applicable to the employees working in such autonomous organizations. The application of such benefits as given to Central Government employees in respect of employees of such autonomous organizations as well as the manner and conditions governing such application, including sharing of the additional financial implications arising thereon, requires specific approval of the Central Government. The autonomous organizations are expected to manage their affairs in such a fashion that their dependence on Central Government for financial support to meet the extra financial implications is minimal, as such autonomous organizations are expected to be financially Self-sufficient So as not to cause any extra burden on the Central Exchequer.

2. In the above background, the question of extension of the revised pay scales in terms of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 as notified on 25.7.2016 in respect of Central Government employees based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission, to the employees of the Quasi-government Organizations, Autonomous Organizations, Statutory Bodies, etc., Set up and funded/controlled by the Central Government, where pattern of emolument structure, i.e. pay scales and allowances, in particular Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance, are identical to those in case of the Central Government employees, has been considered by the Government and it has been decided that the revised pay scales as per the Pay Matrix, as contained in Part-A of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 as well as the principle of pay fixation as contained in the said rules, may be extended to the employees of such organizations, subject to the following stipulations:-
(i) The conditions of service of employees of these organizations, especially those relating to hours of work, payment of OTA etc. are exactly Similar to those in Case of the Central Government employees.

(ii) The revised pay structure shall be admissible to those employees who opt for the same in accordance with the extant Rules.

(iii) Deductions on account of Provident Fund, Contributory Provident Fund or National Pension System, as may be applicable, will have to be made on the basis of the revised pay w.e.f. the date an employee opts to elect the revised pay structure.

3. The revised pay scales contained in Parts B & part C of the Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016, shall not be automatically applicable to the employees Of Autonomous Organizations. The concerned Administrative Ministry shall consider such cases keeping in view whether these pay scales are justified for the category of staff of Autonomous Organizations based on functional considerations, recruitment qualifications, as well as the applicable pre-revised pay scales. Based on such an examination by the concerned Administrative Ministry, appropriate proposals, if justified, would be submitted to the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, through their Integrated Finance.

4. In case of those categories of employees whose pattern of emoluments structure, i.e., pay scales and allowances and conditions of service are not similar to those of the Central Government employees, a separate ‘Group of Officers’ in respect of each of the Autonomous Bodies may be constituted in the respective Ministry/Department. The Financial Adviser of the respective Ministry/Department will represent the Ministry of Finance on this Group. The Group would examine the proposals for revision of pay scales etc. taking into account the views, if any, expressed by the Staff representatives of the concerned organizations. It would be necessary to ensure that the final package of benefits proposed to be extended to the employees of these Autonomous Organizations etc. is not more beneficial than that admissible to the corresponding categories of the Central Government employees. The final package recommended by the ‘Group of Officers’ will require the concurrence of the Ministry of Finance.

5. In regard to the additional financial impact arising out of the implementation of the revised pay Scales, as provided above, the following parameters shall be kept in view:-
(i) In respect of those Autonomous Organizations, which have not been depending upon the Government Grants for their operations or for meeting the cost of salary, including those autonomous organisations which are in a position to meet the additional financial impact from their Own internal resources, the additional financial impact shall be met by the concerned autonomous organizations without any financial support whatsoever from the Government, No financial Support shall be given by the Central Government in Such cases.

(ii) In respect of the other Autonomous Organizations. which are not in a position to meet the additional financial impact, either fully or partly, on account Of the implementation of the revised pay scales, the concerned autonomous organization will take up the proposals with the Advisers of the respective Administrative Financial Ministry/Department, bringing out the extent to which the additional cost could be met internally, the shortfall to be made up and the reasons for the shortfall. While giving concurrence to the implementation of the revised pay scales, the Financial Advisers shall ensure that the extent of Government support is kept at the minimum, and in no case the Government support shall be more than 70% (seventy percent) of the additional financial impact.

(iii) In respect of Autonomous organisations set up under a specific Act of Parliament, not generating adequate internal resources to meet the additional financial impact, the extent of Government support may be more than 70% of the additional impact, provided in the opinion of the concerned Financial Adviser the nature of functions and the fund position of the organisations so warrant.

(iv) The mode of payment of arrears, as laid down in Rule 14 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2016 shall be followed, subject to the overall financial impact and the capacity of the concerned autonomous organization to absorb the cost without putting any avoidable burden on the Governments finances, provided the conditions mentioned above are met.


6. The Central Government has not taken any decision so far in regard to various allowances based on the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Central Government employees and, therefore, until further orders the existing allowances in the autonomous organizations shall continue to be admissible as per the existing terms and conditions, irrespective of the revised pay Scales having been adopted.
