Looks like good days are soon going to arrive for central government employees who have been keenly waiting for finance ministry's intervention in regards to hike in their minimum pay.

Although, these hike would be still lower compared to employees demand to raise minimum pay from Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and fitment factors to 3.68 times under 7CPC.

Delay in the hike decision made somewhat 48 lakh government employees restless. Last week it was known that these employees have demanded Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's intervention in this matter.
There were many media reports stating that PM Narendra Modi - government has finally given a green signal for the hike in minimum pay and fitment factor. They want this to take place by January 2018.

New Delhi: Central government employees unions expressed unhappiness over the Modi government’s inordinate delay in pay hike.

The unions leaders sought the FM Arun Jaitley’s intervention in the pay hike issue.

It seems that a strong sense of resentment is growing among 4.8 million central government employees and 5.5 million pensioners over minimum pay hike beyond the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

Several media reports say Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had promised on June 30, 2016 to raise minimum pay of the central government employees, but the government has failed to implement pay hike till date.

Expressing dissatisfaction over the National Anomaly Committee (NAC), which has been formed to look into the pay irregularities arising out of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations, the unions leaders sought the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s intervention in the issue.

Central government employees unions, have pointed out that even one year passed after the formation of the NAC still NAC could not conclude pay hike report.

The NAC is making all efforts to meet last month, which was postponed.

“Even after four months of implementation of the revised allowances, we are still awaiting a nod from the government for getting pay hike,” a leader of employees unions said.

However, media reports say, NAC is going to suggest minimum pay Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000 with fitment factor 3.00 from the existing 2.57 but unions are demanding for hiking minimum pay Rs 18,000 to Rs 26,000 and they are pressurizing to raise fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times.

The economic experts are worried about the GST and note ban’s effect on exchequer. If such a situation is not chaos, then how is government going to hike minimum pay Rs 21,000?

However, the issue of hike in minimum pay for central government employees beyond the pay commission recommendations is likely to be taken up by the Union Cabinet in January after the completion of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh assemblies’ poll process, according to media reports.

If fitment formula is tinkered with 3.00, the salary and pension in general for all segments of employees will go up.

The Union Cabinet on June 29, 2016 had approved recommendations of the 7th Pay commission and gave nod minimum pay from Rs 7,000 to Rs 18,000 per month as well as fitment factor of pay fixation uniformly was approved 2.57 times of basic pay of sixth pay commission for all central government employees.

7th Pay Commission Minimum Pay Hike: Reportedly, Narendra Modi government has finally given a green signal for the hike in minimum pay and fitment factor of the Central government employees. This is a big news for Central government employees.

It seems now the good news of hike in minimum pay of Central government employees is not too far. Reportedly, Narendra Modi government has finally given a green signal for the hike in minimum pay and fitment factor of the Central government employees. This is a big news for Central government employees. Now, National Anomaly Committee (NAC) and Department of Expenditure will take a final call on the matter. NAC has got the nod from the government to increase minimum salary and fitment factor, according to a report in Jansatta. Now, it is being expected that the minimum salary will go up to Rs 21,000 from Rs 18,000.
NAC was formed to look into various pay related anomalies arising out of the implementation of the Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations. The 22-member panel is being headed by Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) and has members of both the official and staff side.
“It has been decided to set up the anomaly committee of the National Council (Joint Consultative Machinery) consisting of representatives of the official side and the staff side to settle any anomalies arising out of the implementation of the Pay Commission’s recommendations,” an order issued by the DoPT said.
Earlier, on June 28, in a bonanza to 48 lakh central government employees, the Union Cabinet had approved recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission with 34 modifications. The increased allowances came into effect from July 1, 2017, is based on the recommendations of the Committee on Allowances (CoA).

Railways to engage retired railway staff

Posted by binu P Saturday, October 21, 2017 0 comments

NEW DELHI: The Railway Board has empowered Divisional Railway Managers (DRM) to re-engage retired rail personnel for appropriate posts in the sector. 

In a letter dated October 16, the board gave the power to the DRMs to employ pensioners at their discretion. 

"Divisional railway managers are empowered to re-engage retired employees. Railway should give publicity to such re- engagement by putting it on railway websites," the letter said. 

The board said those re-appointed can only be in service till they are 62. The retirement age of employees is 60. 

The monthly remuneration of such employees would be determined by "reducing pension from his last pay drawn", it said. 

The board has also laid down some conditions for re- engagement. 

Retired employees being re-appointed should not have been covered under voluntary retirement schemes such as the Safety Related Retirement Scheme or Liberalised Active Retirement Scheme for Guaranteed Employment for Safety Staff, the letter stated. 

"While re-engagement of such staff, medical fitness of the appropriate category should be obtained from the designated authorities as per existing practices," it said.

The Northern Railways has already released a notification inviting retired railway employees to apply for 4,500 vacant positions in various departments. 

The board's letter also said suitability or competence of the staff should be adjudged before the re-engagement and their safety record as well as other operational requirements adequately addressed. 

The offer for re-engagement, the board said, stands till September 14, 2018, and they have to be discharged once selected candidates join from the Railway Recruitment Board.

New Delhi: Air India unions are likely to meet next week in the national capital to discuss their strategy amid the government going ahead with the disinvestment process.

People familiar with the matter say efforts are on to bring all staff unions of Air India including those of the pilots and engineers on one platform and work out a strategy to deal with the situation arising out of the government’s decision to offload its stake in the flag carrier.

Air India, which has over 20,000 employees on its roll, has as many as six recognised unions, representing ground and commercial staff, pilots, cabin crew and engineers, among others, besides, several unrecognised unions.

To revive the loss-making state-run carrier, which also has a debt burden of over Rs 50,000 crore, the government has decided to go for its strategic disinvestment and the modalities are being worked out by a Group of Ministers headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) had on June 28 given in-principle nod for strategic divestment of Air India and five of its subsidiaries. The government has already invited applications for engaging up to two advisers, a legal adviser and asset valuer for the strategic disinvestment of Air India and its subsidiaries/ joint venture.

The finance ministry, which has been pumping small doses of money every year into Air India, seems reluctant to spend more. The airline had landed up in this situation because of the loans it had taken to add some 111 aircraft to its ageing and depleted fleet.

Earlier this month, Tata conglomerate showed interest in bidding for Air India as the group needs to increase the sizes of its aviation business.

According to media reports, some companies including low-cost Indian carrier IndiGo, owned by InterGlobe Aviation, ground handling company Bird Group and Turkey’s Celebi Aviation Holdings have expressed an interest in buying some of Air India’s various businesses.
