Sub: Clarification regarding bunching of stages in the revised pay structure under RS(RP) Rules, 2016.

Subsequent to issue of clarifications regarding bunching of stages while fixing the pay in 7th CPC Schedules to RS(RP) Rules, 2016 vide Board's letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/3 dated 27.09.2016 (RBE No. 139/2017), queries have been raised by several Railways on granting benefit of bunching of stages in case(s) where pay of two direct officers (belonging to different allotment year) came out to be fixed at first cell of Level-13 though, difference in their pays as on 31.12.2015 is comprising two stages.

2. In this context, it is intimated that the issue has been referred to Ministry of Finance (copy enclosed) and clarification on the same is awaited.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Clarification regarding bunching of stages under revised pay structure.

Detailed guidelines on the subject have been issued vide MoF's OM No. 1-6/2016-IC dated 03.08.2017, which has been adopted in Railways through letter 27.09.2017. Para 7 of MoF's OM dated 03.08.2017 states clarify inter alia "…..benefit on account of bunching cannot be extended with reference to pay stages lower than the Entry Pay indicated by the 7th CPC (emphasis added) for that level in the Pay Matrix. Extending the benefit of bunching with reference to pay stages below the entry pay will perpetuate the difference in pay on account of differential Entry Pay which was addressed by 7th CPC (emphasis added)".

2. However, para 8 (iv) of the said OM states "All pay stages lower than the Entry Pay in the 6th CPC structure (emphasis added) as indicated in the Pay Matrix in 7th CPC Report are not to be taken into account for determining the extent of bunching"

3. However, certain cases have come to notice of this Ministry where this crucial difference in terminology in para-7 & para-8 of the OM is leading to confusion/ambiguity as to whether entry pay in 6th CPO alone and not 7th CPC is the deciding factor for determining bunching eligibility. Relying on the terminology adopted in para-8, cases have been noticed where benefit of 'bunching' has been given to direct officers of 2002 allotment year w.r.t. their junior of 2003 allotment year. Their pay fixation details are enclosed at Annexure-A. Similar cases involving certain retired officers in Level-13 and Level-14 has also been received. Illustration in this regard is enclosed at Annexure-B.

4. While the over-riding spirit of the clarifications issued by Ministry of Finance's OM referred to above, was to avoid differential entry pay and was not to provide benefit of bunching at the entry level, this dichotomy in para-7 & para-8 is leading to differing interpretations. Clarifications over the issue may kindly be provided to enable uniform interpretation.

Encl. As above.

DoPT Reservation for the Persons with Benchmark Disabilities

Reservation for the Persons with Benchmark Disabilities

No.36035/02/2017-Estt (Res)
GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES & PENSIONS
DEPARTMENT OF PERSONNEL & TRAINING
North Block, New Delhi
Dated the 15th January, 2018
OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Reservation for the Persons with Benchmark Disabilities - reg.

With enactment of THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES ACT, 2016' from 19th April, 2017 and notification of THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES RULES, 2017' on 15th June, 2017, the following instructions are issued in line with the provisions made therein regarding reservation for Persons with Benchmark Disabilities, as defined under Section 2(r) of the Act against the posts and services of the Central Government.

2. QUANTUM OF RESERVATION

2.1 In case of direct recruitment, four per cent of the total number of vacancies to be filled up by direct recruitment, in the cadre strength in each group of posts i.e. Groups A, B and C shall be reserved for persons with benchmark disabilities.

2.2 Against the posts identified for each disabilities, of which, one per cent each shall be reserved for persons with benchmark disabilities under clauses (a), (b) and (c) and one per cent, under clauses (d) and (e), unless otherwise excluded under the provisions of Para 3 here in under:-
(a) blindness and low vision;
(b) deaf and hard of hearing;
(c) locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy;
(d) autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness;
(e) multiple disabilities from amongst persons under clauses (a) to (d) including deaf-blindness

3. EXEMPTION FROM RESERVATION:
If any Ministry/Department in the Central Government considers it necessary to exempt any establishment or any cadre or cadres fully or partly from the provisions of reservation for persons with benchmark disabilities, it shall make a reference to the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities giving full justification for the proposal, who having regard to the type of work carried out in any Government establishment by notification and subject to such condition, if any, as may be specified in the notification, in consultation with the Chief Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities (CCPD) may exempt any Establishment or any cadre(s) fully or partly from the provisions of reservation for persons with benchmark disabilities.

4. ADJUSTMENT AGAINST UNRESERVED VACANCIES:

4.1 In the category of posts which are identified suitable for persons with benchmark disabilities, a person with benchmark disability cannot be denied the right to compete for appointment by direct recruitment against an unreserved vacancy. Thus a person with benchmark disability can be appointed by direct recruitment against vacancy not specifically reserved for the persons with benchmark disability, provided the post is identified suitable for persons with benchmark disability of the relevant category.

4.2 Persons with benchmark disabilities selected without relaxed standards along with other candidates, will not be adjusted against the reserved share of vacancies. The reserved vacancies will be filled up separately from amongst the eligible candidates with benchmark disabilities which will thus comprise of candidates with benchmark disabilities who are lower in merit than the last candidate in merit list but otherwise found suitable for appointment, if necessary, by relaxed standards.
 
5. CERTIFICATE OF DISABILITY:
A person who wants to avail the benefit of reservation will have to submit a certificate of disability issued by a Competent Authority. Such certificate in the event of selection of such person for any post, will be subject to such verification/re-verification
as may be decided by the competent authority.

6. COMPUTATION OF NUMBER OF POSTS TO BE RESERVED:

6.1 The number of posts to be reserved for persons with benchmark disabilities in case of Group C posts shall be computed on the basis of total number of vacancies in the cadre strength of Group C posts, in the establishment, although the recruitment of the persons with benchmark disabilities would only be against the category of posts identified suitable for them. The number of vacancies to be reserved for the persons with benchmark disabilities in case of direct recruitment to Group 'C' posts in an establishment shall be computed by taking into account the total number of vacancies arising in Group 'C' posts for being filled by direct recruitment in a recruitment year both in the identified and non-identified category of posts under the establishment.

6.2 Reservation for persons with benchmark disabilities in Group 'A' or Group 'B' posts shall be computed on the basis of total number of vacancies occurring in direct recruitment quota in the cadre in all the Group 'A' posts or Group 'B' posts respectively, and the computation of total vacancies shall include vacancies arising in the identified and non-identified category of posts.

7. EFFECTING RESERVATION - MAINTENANCE OF ROSTERS:

7.1 Every Government establishment shall maintain group-wise a separate vacancy based 100 point vacancy based reservation roster register in the format given in Annexure for determining/effecting reservation for the Persons with Benchmark Disabilities - one each for Group 'A' posts filled by direct recruitment, Group 'B' posts filled by direct recruitment and Group 'C' posts filled by direct recruitment.

7.2 Each register shall have cycles of 100 points and each cycle of 100 points shall be divided into four blocks, comprising the following points:

1st Block - point No. 01 to point No. 25
2nd Block - point No. 26 to point No. 50
3rd Block - point No. 51 to point No. 75
4th Block - point No. 76 to point No.100

7.3 Points 1, 26, 51 and 76 of the roster shall be earmarked for persons with benchmark disabilities - one point each for four respective categories of disabilities. The Head of the establishment shall ensure that vacancies identified at SI. No.1, 26, 51 and 76 are earmarked for the respective categories of the persons with benchmark disabilities.

7.4 All the vacancies arising irrespective of vacancies reserved for Persons with Benchmark Disabilities shall be entered in the relevant roster. If the vacancy falling at point no. 1 is not identified for the Person with Benchmark Disability or the Head of the establishment considers it desirable not to fill it up by Persons with Benchmark Disabilities or it is not possible to fill up that post by the Persons with Benchmark Disabilities for any other reason, one of the vacancies falling at any of the points from 2 to 25 shall be treated as reserved for the person with benchmark disability and filled as such.

7.6 There is a possibility that none of the vacancies from 1 to 25 is suitable for any category of the person with benchmark disability. In that case two vacancies from 26 to 50 shall be filled as reserved for persons with benchmark disabilities. If the vacancies from 26 to 50 are also not suitable for any category, three vacancies shall be filled as reserved from the third block containing points from 51 to 75. This means that if no vacancy can be reserved in a particular block, it shall be carried over into the next block

7.7 After all the 100 points of the roster are covered, a fresh cycle of 100 points shall start.
