Abstract

Kerala Service Rules - Enhancement of age of retirement - Re-option for fixation of pay under Rule 28A Part I, KSRs - Sanctioned - Orders issued.

FINANCE (RULES.A) DEPARTMENT

Dated,Thiruvananthapuram, 28th July,2012.

Read:- G.O.(P)No. 183/2012/Fin, dated 26.3.2012.

ORDER

   As per the notification in the Government Order read above, Rule 60(a) & (c) Part I. KSRs were amended by withdrawing unification of date of retirement of Government employees and teachers as 31st March every year and enhancing their age of retirement from 55 to 56 years. It has come to the notice of Government that several officers, who were expecting retirement on  31.3.2012 were constrained to opt promotion date for fixation of pay under option (a) of Rule 28 A Part I, KSRs as there was no chance for accrual of increment in the lower time scale before 31.3.2012, which led to a reduction in pay and pensionary benefits. Since enhancement in the age of retirement provides the officers with a chance for accrual of increment in the lower post, they become eligible for exercise of option (b) for fixation of pay under Rule 28 A Part I KSRs. There are also cases of officers who preferred option (a) to option (b) in view of retirement on 31.3.2012 with the intention of enjoying the benefit of two increments during the full or part of the last ten months preceding 31.3.2012.

NPS performed better that GPF in the last year.

Friday, July 27, 2012

   The three NPS managers handling the pension funds of Central and state government employees have delivered average returns of 9.33% in the past one year, outperforming the state-run government provident fund (GPF), employees provident fund (EPF) and the public provident fund (PPF). The three-year annualised returns are also quite decent at 8.47%, though not as spectacular as in the past one year.

   More than 16 lakh central and state government employees have almost Rs 8,500 crore invested in the NPS. This money is managed by three pension fund managers - SBI Pension Funds, LIC Pension Fund and UTI Retirement Solutions. Each of the three funds manages roughly one-third of the NPS corpus.

   Though three years is a very short time to judge long-term instruments such as pension funds, the impressive performance is likely to silence the criticism that NPS is not allocating enough to growth assets. Central and state government NPS funds can invest a maximum of 15% in equities. Even in NPS for the general public, where investors can choose their own asset allocation, a maximum of 50% can be put in equities.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Review of three years time limit for making compassionate appointment.

   The primary objective of scheme for compassionate appointment circulated vide O.M. No. 14014/6/94-Estt(D) dated 09.10.1998 is to provide immediate assistance to relieve the dependent family of the deceased or medically retired Government servant from financial destitution i.e. penurious condition. The Hon’ble Supreme Court in its judgment dated 05.04.2011 in Civil Appeal No. 2206 of 2006 filed by Local Administration Department vs. M. Selvanayagam @ Kumaravelu has observed that “an appointment made many years after the death of the employee or without due consideration of the financial resources available to his/her dependents and the financial deprivation caused to the dependents as a result of his death, simply because the claimant happened to be one of the dependents of the deceased employee would be directly in conflict with Articles 14 & 16 of the Constitution and hence, quite bad and illegal. In dealing with cases of compassionate appointment, it is imperative to keep this vital aspect in mind”.

PFRDA Issues Revised Set of Guidelines for Registration of Pension Fund Managers to Manage National Pension System for the Non-Government and Private Sector.

Thursday, July 12, 2012

   The Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) today issued a revised set of guidelines for registration of Pension Fund Managers (PFMs) to manage the National Pension System (NPS) for the non-government and private sector.

   The revised guidelines, available on PFRDA’s website www.pfrda.org.in, have done away with the earlier bidding process, wherein a pre-determined number of slots were bid for by the PFMs, and the fees charged by them for managing the pension funds had to be uniform for all players. The earlier process has now been replaced by a system which lays down the eligibility criteria for registration as PFMs, and all interested players desiring to enter the pension industry, can register as PFMs subject to their fulfilling the eligibility criteria. There is no limitation on the number of PFMs. Further, the PFMs are now allowed to prescribe their own fee charges, subject to an overall ceiling to be laid down by PFRDA. It is expected that this would provide for an economically viable business model for the PFMs attracting a fresh set of entrants into the pension industry, and the resultant competition would ensure market driven fee structures, which would work to the advantage of the pension subscribers.
