CAT Judgement : In a relief to several PAs , the Ahmedabad bench of CAT has set aside the DoP order cancelling their services

In a relief to several postal assistants (PA) and sorting assistants (SA) from Gujarat, the Ahmedabad bench of central administrative tribunal (CAT) has set aside the order cancelling their services on Tuesday.

The CAT has also asked the postal department to conduct inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the recruitment of PAs and SAs from the state and take decision within three months.

Hundreds of PAs and SAs from the state, whose recruitment was cancelled by the postal department in December last year, had approached the CAT. "The postal department had cancelled the recruitments across the country after one of the candidates who wasn't selected alleged that irregularities occurred in the recruitment process in Uttar Pradesh. Following the allegations, inquiry was conducted and hundreds of recruitments were cancelled by the postal department," said senior advocate Bhaskar Tanna who represented the PAs and SAs.
"We filed case in the CAT on behalf of 167 affected PAs and SAs from Gujarat. We argued in the tribunal that the postal department terminated all recruitments without segregating guilty and non-guilty candidates. Also, the candidates were not given any opportunity of being heard.
The bench of M Nagarajan and E K Bharat Bhushan held that the decision to cancel the recruitments was unconstitutional and violated the provisions of the constitution," Tanna told TOI. The bench has asked the postal department to conduct inquiry within three months and take those on job who are found to be not guilty. "This order is limited to Gujarat. The tribunal has also asked postal department to ensure that the guilty be booked," Tanna added.

Release of additional instalment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to Pensioners due from 1.1.2016
The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved release of an additional instalment of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to Pensioners w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

The increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC). The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief would be of Rs. 6796.50 crore per annum and Rs.7929.24 crore respectively, in the financial year 2016-17 (for a period of 14 months from January, 2016 to February, 2017).

Atal Pension Yojana (APY) amended to give an option to the spouse to continue to contribute for balance period on premature death of the subscriber

Atal Pension Yojana (APY) amended to give an option to the spouse to continue to contribute for balance period on premature death of the subscriber; 
After the death of both the subscriber and the spouse, the nominee of the subscriber shall be entitled to receive the pension wealth, as accumulated till age of 60 years of the subscriber.
The feedback received from various quarters has indicated that the present provision under Atal Pension Yojana (APY) of handing-over lump sum amount to spouse on premature death of the subscriber is not preferred by many subscribers. It has also highlighted the fact that there is growing demand to give an option to the spouse to continue contribution after the death of subscriber to enable him / her to draw pension when the deceased subscriber would have turned 60 years of age. Therefore, after considering the feedback, the Government has decided to give an option to the spouse of the subscriber to continue contributing to APY account of the subscriber, for the remaining vesting period, till the original subscriber would have attained the age of 60 years instead of present provision of handing-over lump-sum amount to spouse on the premature death (death before 60 years of age) of the subscriber. The spouse of the subscriber shall be entitled to receive the same pension amount as that of the subscriber until the death of the spouse. After the death of both the subscriber and the spouse, the nominee of the subscriber shall be entitled to receive the pension wealth, as accumulated till age of 60 years of the subscriber.
Earlier to address the longevity risks among the workers in unorganised sector and to encourage the workers in unorganised sector to voluntarily save for their retirement, the Government had launched a new initiative called Atal Pension Yojana (APY) with effect from 1st June, 2015. Under APY, each subscriber, on completion of 60 years of age, will get the guaranteed minimum monthly pension, or higher monthly pension, if the investment returns are higher than the assumed returns for minimum guaranteed pension, over the period of contribution. After the subscriber’s death, the spouse of the subscriber shall be entitled to receive the same pension amount as that of the subscriber until the death of the spouse. After the death of both the subscriber and the spouse, the nominee of the subscriber shall be entitled to receive the pension wealth, as accumulated till age of 60 years of the subscriber. In exceptional circumstances, that is, in the event of the death of beneficiary or specified illness, as mentioned in the PFRDA (Exit and withdrawals under the National Pension System) Regulations, 2015, before the age of 60 years, the accumulated pension wealth till date would be given to the nominee or the subscriber as the case may be.

Subject: Implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission — 2nd meeting of the E-CoS

A meeting of the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) was held on 1 st March, 2016 in the Cabinet Secretariat under the chairmanship of the Cabinet Secretary to discuss issues raised by Staff„side of JCM
2. Welcoming the members of E-CoS and JCM Staffrside, Cabinet Secretary observed that the meeting had been called to take a note of concerns of Stäff-$ide of JCM regarding recommendations of the 7th CPC and invited the members Of Staff-side of JCM to share their views on the recommendations.
3. Opening the discussion, representative of Staff-side of JCM expressed gratitude to Cabinet Secretary for inviting them for interaction regarding the recommendations of the 7th CPC and requested that more frequent interactions of JCM may be held to resolve outstanding issues across the table. It was expressed that 7th CPC has recommended a meager increase of 14% in the minimum pay as against increase ranging up to 54% during previous Pay Commissions. It was further stated that the recommendations on minimum pay, allowances, advances etc. will cause difficulty to employees. Representative of Staff-side informed that they have already submitted a charter of demands to the Cabinet Secretary bringing out the issues. These have also been discussed in the meeting of JS (IC) with Staff-side of JCM held on 19.02.2016.
4. Major concerns expressed by JCM Staff-side were as under:
The minimum pay of Rs. 18000/- p.m. recommended by the Commission is on lower side and needs to be revised upward by taking into account the prices of commodities as on 01.07.2015 and appropriately factoring in for social obligations & housing.
(ii) New Pension Scheme should be done away with. Persons governed by the NPS are deprived of Family Pension and do not have provision of provident fund. As a result they are at a disadvantageous position as compared to the persons governed by the old system.
(iii) Recommendations on allowances need to be properly examined before taking a decision.
(iv) Fixed Medical Allowance should be increased from existing Rs. 500 p.m. to Rs. 2000 p.m. as majority of cities are not covered under CGI-IS and people residing outside the CGHS covered area are unable to meet their medical needs with meager amount of Rs. 500 p.m.
(v) Recommendation regarding withdrawal of non•interest bearing advances may not be accepted.
(vi) Outsourcing of services should be discouraged as the contract workers are being exploited by contractors and at the game time the service delivery is being compromised due to inefficiency and lack of accountability of low aid contractual staff.
(vii) Enhancement in contribution towards Group Insurance Scheme, is not justified as this would reduce the actual increase in take home salary considerably. If the rates are to be raised, the Government should bear the insurance premium
(viii) The recommendation regarding grant of only 80% of salary for the second year of Child Care Leave need not be accepted as this would deter women from availing of CCL, which was introduced as a welfare measure.
(ix) Annual increments be granted @ 5% instead of existing 3% and increments may be granted on two dates viz., 1 st of January and 1 st of July of every year as in the present system of grant of increment on 1 st July of every year, employees joining/promoted after 1 st January, who do not complete 6 months services as on 1 st July, have to wait for up to 18 months for grant of increment.
(x) The Commission’s recommendation of downgrading the Assistants of Central Secretariat for bringing in parity with their counterparts in the field offices is not appropriate.
(xi) Recommendation regarding PRIS need not be accepted as no scientific mechanism has been devised to assess the performance of employees and the same could e courage favoritism.
5. Issues regarding financial upgradation under MACPS in promotional hierarchy without grading stipulation. grant of two increments on promotion introduction of Productivity Linked Bonus, treating Grameen Dak Sevak as Government employees, removal of pap of 5% on compassionate appointment 8i full pay and allowances In case of Work Related Illness and Injury Leave improving promotional avenues for technical and supervisory staff etc. were also raised by members of JCM.
6. During the discussion, representatives of JCM also suggested that the Nodal Officers nominated by various Ministries/Departments may hold interactions with recognized Staff Associations and other stakeholders under their purview so as to identify issues specific to those Ministries/Departments for redressal.
7. After hearing the participants, Cabinet Secretary observed that the deliberations have helped E-CoS in understanding the major concerns of the Staff-side and said that all issues have been taken note of. He assured that fair consideration will be given to all points brought out by JCM before taking a final view. He further stated that the E-CoS needs to examine the Report of the Commission in entirety as well as the issues raised by JCM in consultation with all other stakeholders. As such, it may take some time to take a final call on the recommendations of the Commission.
8. Cabinet Secretary also advised the members of E-CoS to hold interactions with their Staff Associations and other stakeholders under their purview preferably within a week.
9. Meeting ended with vote of thanks to the chair.

OROP Arrears Payment in Record Time

The Government of India which accords utmost importance to the welfare of Ex-Servicemen, has kept its promise with regard to the historic decision taken on 05 September 2015 to implement the more than four decades old demand of Ex-Servicemen for One Rank One Pension (OROP), by ensuring that payments have begun to the concerned in record time. Orders had been issued with regard to this historic decision, through a notification on 07 November 2015 by the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (ESW) of the Ministry of Defence.

The 101 tables in these implementation orders contain revised pension of different ranks and categories. In the past implementation of CSC-2012 and 6th CPC had taken a longer time.  More than two-thirds of the Ex-Servicemen have now been paid the OROP arrears. Payments have now reached the accounts of 13.02 lakh pensioners amounting to about Rs. 2,293 crore. This amount has been released through Defence Pension Disbursing Offices (DPDOs), the State Bank of India (SBI) and the Punjab National Bank (PNB).

Ration Card Not to be Proof of Address for Passport

Ration card will no longer be accepted as a proof of identity and address along with passport application. The central government has issued a notice to this effect, which the regional passport office said would come into effect from April 1.
The External Affairs Ministry has directed all passport branches to comply with the orders. Earlier, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution had on December 20 discontinued accepting ration card as proof of identity and residence. It had come across cases where the details on the card had been tampered with.
“It has been seen that the ration card cannot verify the authenticity of an applicant, as people can make changes to it easily. When they migrate, they alter the details to be able to misuse the card for various purposes,” said regional passport officer Harmanbir Singh. All passports offices have to make the necessary changes to the information on their portals, run a ticker informing the public that ration card was no longer a valid proof of identity or address.
Besides the ration card, the other valid proof of address are water bill, Aadhaar card, income-tax assessment order, proof of gas connection, registered rent agreement, photo passbook of active bank account, electricity bill, and the passport copy of spouse.

No need to take action on anonymous or pseudonymous complaints of corruption against Government employees

There is no need to take action on anonymous or pseudonymous complaints of corruption against government employees, the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has said.

In its directive to all ministries and public sector undertakings, the Commission said that such complaints only needed to be filed. 

The directive to all ministries and public sector undertakings comes after CVC received references from departments and organisations seeking clarification on the action to be taken on anonymous or pseudonymous complaints, which were acted upon. 

"No action should be taken on anonymous or pseudonymous complaints in line with Commission's present instructions dated November 25, 2014 and such complaints should be filed," it said. 

The anti-corruption watchdog has been clarifying on the issue since 1999. In its guidelines issued yesterday, the CVC said the action pursued on anonymous or pseudonymous complaints prior to the issue of 1999 circular can be "pursued further to its logical end". 

Material or evidence gathered during the investigation or verification of anonymous complaints when the action was prohibited on such complaints, or when such enquiry was initiated without the approval of the CVC, can be utilised for further initiation of disciplinary proceedings on misconducts noticed in such verification or enquiry, it said. 

The Commission usually gets a number of complaints against a government employee when he or she is being considered for a senior level post or for some important assignment, a senior CVC official said. 

"The intention behind filing such a complaint is intended to delay the process of granting vigilance clearance to an employee. People have been asked to give verifiable details of corruption charges along with their details so that prompt action can be taken against guilty and to ensure that honest officers are not harassed," he said. 

The CVC gives vigilance clearance to senior government officials being considered for foreign postings, central deputation or other appointments. 

All Chief Vigilance Officers--who act as distant arm of the CVC--have been asked to follow these latest guidelines while processing anonymous and pseudonymous corruption complaints, the official said.
