The time limit to receive and dispose of pay anomalies of central government employees has been extended by the Centre by three months

7th Pay Commission: Centre Extends Time Limit To Receive, Dispose Anomalies.
New Delhi: The time limit to receive and dispose of pay anomalies of central government employees has been extended by the Centre by three months.
The deadline to resolve any discrepancy arising out of the implementation of 7th Pay Commission (7CPC) reports will be November 15, instead of August 15, an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.
The Centre has accepted most of the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission, to be implemented from January 1, 2016.
“The time limit for receipt of anomalies is extended by three months from the date of expiry of receiving anomalies i.e. from February 15, 2017 to May 15, 2017,” the DoPT order F.No.11/2/2016-JCA, issued last week said.
The DoPT had last year asked all central government departments to set up committees to look into various pay related anomalies.
The anomaly committees were to be formed at two levels– national and departmental–consisting of representatives of the official side and the staff side of the national council and the departmental council respectively.
The Departmental Anomaly Committee is chaired by the additional secretary or the joint secretary (administration) concerned.
“The National Anomaly Committee will deal with anomalies common to two or more departments and in respect of common categories of employees.
“The Departmental Anomaly Committee will deal with anomalies pertaining exclusively to the department concerned and having no repercussions on the employees of another ministry or department in the opinion of the Financial Adviser,” the DoPT had said.
The committees have been mandated to receive anomalies through secretary, staff side of respective council.
Cases where there is a dispute about the definition of anomaly and those where there is a disagreement between the staff side and the official side on the anomaly will be dealt by an “arbitrator”, to be appointed out of a panel of names proposed by the two sides, it had said.
The arbitrator will consider the disputed cases arising in the anomaly committees at the national as well as department level.

Simple method to link Pan no to aadhar before July 31st

The IT Dept had been asking people to link their PAN no. with Aadhar before 31 July and many were finding it difficult as their names did not match in both. ( Eg. Names with initials in one and expanded initials in another). Responding to complaints, the IT dept has come out with a simple solution now.
Just go to their www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in website and log in. Then go to Profile settings and choose Aadhar linking. Then enter Aadhar no. and ENTER NAME AS GIVEN IN AADHAR CARD. Then both get linked and u will get a confirmation about its success to ur email too. This is a simpler process than several other methods tried earlier. 
Please note that matching of PAN and Aadhar is inevitable for GST also.

7th Pay Commission Allowances: Updates On Empowered Committee Meeting

7th Pay Commission Allowances: Updates On Empowered Committee Meeting - By NDTV
The allowance committee which examined 7th pay commission's recommendations has suggested some modifications.
The Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) is likely to meet soon to screen the allowance committee report on 7th pay commission recommendations, an employee union leader said. He expects the Empowered Committee of Secretaries to firm up the proposal in a fortnight for approval of the Cabinet. The Ashok Lavasa committee on allowances, which examined the 7th pay commission's recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister on April 27. The allowance committee has suggested some modifications in some allowances that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance ministry said in a statement. 
The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance or HRA be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent when DA crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when DA crosses 100 per cent. With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent. 
The 7th pay commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance. 
The Cabinet had earlier approved modification in recommendations of the 7th pay commission relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners and family pensioners based on recommendations of a high-level panel. The decision will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners.
