 New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: Grant of ‘ad-hoc bonus’ for the Central Autonomous Bodies for 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-2018- reg.

Kindly call for our earlier letter of even number dated October 30, 2017(copy enclosed), whereby it was requested, while thanking the government for having implemented VII CPC recommendations in case of staff of the Central Autonomous Bodies, that, their genuine grievance in respect of payment PLB/Ad-hoc bonus to these staff should also be considered .


It would be pertinent to recall that, Finance Ministry used to extend the benefit of PLB/Ad-hoc Bonus to the Central Autonomous Bodies also at par with other Central Government employees till the year 2014-15. Surprisingly, employees of the Central Autonomous Bodies have been deprived of this benefit after the year 2014-15 without assigning any bonafide reason thereto.

It is, therefore, requested that, necessary action may kindly be taken for granting ad-hoc bonus to the Central Autonomous Bodies also on par with the Central Government employees for the years 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-2018, as was being done till the year 2014-15 in the larger interest of justice and parity.

Sincerely Yours,

Wrong Analysis and recommendations about NDA under 7th CPC report
Board’s attention is invited towards this federation’s letter of even number dated 2nd April, 2018 (copy enclosed), vide which it was pointed out that, on implementation of new formula, recommended by the VII CPC, rates of Night Duty Allowance get reduced rather than any improvement therein……

No.AIRF/405(VII CPC)
Dated: September 17, 2018
The Secretary(E), 
Railway Board, 
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Wrong Analysis and recommendations about NDA under 7th CPC report

Ref.: (i) Report of 7th CPC(Para 8.17.71 to 77) reg. Night Duty Allowance 
(ii) RBE No.61/2016(Last NDA Rate of 6th CPC when DA at 125%) 
(iii) RBE No.36/2018 No.E(P&A)II-2017/HW-1 dated 08.03.2018

Board’s attention is invited towards this federation’s letter of even number dated 2nd April, 2018 (copy enclosed), vide which it was pointed out that, on implementation of new formula, recommended by the VII CPC, rates of Night Duty Allowance get reduced rather than any improvement therein.

A calculation table was also appended in our letter referred to above, explaining the actual reduction in Night Duty Allowance on implementation of current formula, recommended by the VII CPC, which we are again quoting hereunder for ready reference:-

Rates of Night Duty Allowance, as per 6th CPC formula (mean value of Pay Band + GP) + DA)/215, changed by the 7th CPC, i.e. (Basic Pay + DA)/200, will decline by 20% to 40% from the existing, i.e.

Pay Scales
As on 01.01.2016 when DA 125% (as per 6th CPC)
As on 01.07.2017 when DA 139% (as per 6thCPC, rate not declared by the Board)
As on 01.07.2017 when DA 5% (as per 7th CPC)
5200-20200-1800
151.75
161.20
94.50
5200-20200-1900
152.80
162.30
104.48
5200-20200-2000
153.85
163.40
113.93
5200-20200-2400
158.00
167.85
133.88
5200-20200-2800
162.20
172.30
153.30
9300-34800-4200
274.70
291.80
185.85
9300-34800-4600 and above
278.90
296.25
235.73
Also rates of the NDA were not declared by the Railway Board on 01.07.2016 and 01.01.2017 as per 6th CPC.

It is, therefore, reiterated that, the issue may be looked into afresh in the light of the foregoing, and improvement in the formula, recommended by the VII CPC, may be done, so that, rates of Night Duty Allowance get improved rather than any reduction therein.

This may kindly be treated as “Most Urgent” as there is serious discontentment brewing among the staff, particularly Running and Traffic Staff and other Safety Categories Staff who have to invariably perform night duty.
Yours faithfully,
 sd/-

All India Protest Day on 19.9.2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct) Rules – DoPT


All India Protest Day on 19.9.2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct) Rules – DoPT issued Orders

Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula, Scrapping NPS, Allow Option No.1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula

MOST IMMEDIATE OUT TODAY
No.45018/l/2017-Vig. 
Government of India 
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions 
Department of Personnel & Training
North Block, New Delhi, 
Dated the 18th September, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules) 1964 – Regarding.

It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), New Delhi has decided to observe “All India Protest Day” on 19th September, 2018 in support of the following issues:

i. Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula, ii. Scrapping of the New Contributory Pension Scheme; and iii. Allow Option No.1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.


2. The instructions issued by the Department of Personnel and Training prohibit the Government servants from participating in any form of strike including mass casual leave, go slow etc. or any action that abet any form of strike in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(1) of the Fundamental Rules, pay and allowances is not admissible to an employee for his absence from duty without any authority. As to the concomitant rights of an Association after it is formed, they cannot be different from the rights which can be claimed by the individual members of which the Association is composed. It follows that the right to form an Association does not include any guaranteed right to strike. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also ruled in several judgments that going on a strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by the Government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. dated 12.9.2008, on the subject for strict compliance (enclosed as Annexure-A).

3. All officers are requested that the above instructions may be brought to the notice of the employees working under their control. All officers are also requested not to sanction Casual Leave or any other kind of leave to the officers and employees, if applied for, during the period of proposed protest, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.

4. In case employees go on protest, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of protest, i.e., 19.09.2018.
