Early Decision – No need to pay Arrears on DA and 7th CPC.

   Decision in the right time –will avoid more funds to allocate as arrears!

   At last, the most eagerly awaited announcement of additional dearness allowance has been declared by the cabinet, due from January 2013 to Central Government employees and Pensioners.

   In general the announcement of dearness allowance has been made in the month of March every year. But this year this has been declared in the month of April. Though it was announced after some delay, there is no any loss, as the dearness allowance hike has to be paid with effect from 01-01-2013.

   Before this announcement, there was a rumor that 50% dearness allowance will be merged with basic pay or otherwise dearness allowance will not be hiked, but the cabinet committee decision cleared these doubts.

   Employees and Pensioners will get one more month arrear from January to April. Government has to allocate more funds as arrear due to delay.

   If the decisions concluded in the right time, there will be no chance to allocate more fund for the payment of arrears and also prevent practical problems to accounting staff.

No merger of D.A. but seventh pay commission likely this year.

   According to our sources in New Delhi, there is no chance of any merger of Dearness Allowance with basic pay as demanded by the associations. But the Government is considering the formation of seventh pay commission.

   The seventh CPC is scheduled to be effective from 1.1.2016 and if it is formed this year, there will be ample time to finalize it's recommendations. Moreover, if it is not effective from an earlier date, the Govt. will be free from any burden of paying arrears, which may adversely effect the fiscal situation.

   Most significantly, in the eve of general election, the Govt. may spread a "feel good" situation among the employees without having to pay an extra penny from the exchequer.

   "The Union Cabinet may consider the finance ministry proposal to increase DA in its meeting scheduled for Thursday," a source said, adding the hike would be effective from January 1, 2013 and employees and pensioners would be entitled to arrears.

CONFEDERATION CALLS FOR A STRONG PROTEST AGAINST THE INORDINATE DELAY IN GRANTING 8% DA TO CG EMPLOYEES BY GOVERNMENT.

No. Conf/27 /2013 - Dated 17th April 2013

Comrades,
 
DELAY IN GRANT OF DA - HOLD PROTEST DEMONSTRATION ON 23RD APRIL 2013

             Since the implementation of the recommendations of the 4th central pay commission in 1986, the Dearness Allowance (DA) is paid in two six-monthly installments – in March and September of every year. The practice followed since then is that the order granting DA to government employees is issued in March and September itself.
 
            This time the practice in force since 1986 is violated. Our enquiries with concerned Ministries informed us that the file is already moved for Cabinet approval. But it is nearly a month now. The cabinet has found no time to take a decision on this.
 
            This naturally is quiet disturbing, especially in the time of galloping price line. The employees have, in the past, fought bitterly for grant of DA and the 3rd CPC gave a definite formula for DA in the aftermath of the one day strike on 19th September 1968. We cannot allow the hard won DA to be tampered with.

Dearness allowance from Jan 2013, will be declared only after the Finance Minister arrival..!

   It is really surprising that, even after the month prescribed by 6CPC to announce the Dearness Allowance passed, the central government yet to decide the rate of dearness allowance to be paid to central government employees from January 2013. Almost all the central government employees news websites have written more than enough about the rate and timing of announcing the Dearness allowance payable to central government employees with effect from 1st January 2013.

   On 2nd April 2013, Some Established News websites informed that the 8% dearness allowance likely to be approved by cabinet committee today ie on April 02, 2013. But at the end of the cabinet meeting it had been informed that decision on hiking dearness allowance deferred as the Finance Minister was not present. At that time the Finance Minister P Chidambaram was on an official visit to Japan. According to this claim, it is now very much clear that if FM is not present in the Cabinet committee meeting , the fate of DA will not be decided.

Expected dearness allowance from July 2013.

Let us hope the DA for January 2013 will be announced very shortly..

and move on to Expected dearness allowance from July 2013

   It is really unfortunate that at the time of discussing about the rate of dearness allowance from July 2013, expectation on dearness allowance from January 2013 is not fulfilled even now. Actually the additional amount, that the central government employees may get, on account of hike in dearness allowance from January 2013 apart from their regular pay is not at all a matter for the people those who are dealing with lakhs and crores. But it is indeed a matter for 50 lakh central government employees and pensioners, In order to deal with abnormal price rise; they have no other option than expecting dearness allowance to be increased. It is expected that the central government has reached the saturation point and it has no other go than to announce it as soon as possible. Let us hope it will be announced very shortly.

   At this juncture it is very hard to move on to the topic of dearness allowance from July 2013. But there is a saying.. “Sometimes It is very hard to move on, once you move on, you will realize it was the best decision you ever made” . So Let us move on to the topic of expected dearness allowance from July 2013.

The announcement on Dearness Allowance is expected by central and state government employees thirstily.

   Dearness Allowance is not only for Central Government employees..!

   It is a practice which has been followed till now that once in six months, according to the price index ,the rate of DA is being granted in the month of march and September for Government servants. It is not only now, the interest to know the rate of dearness allowance granted twice in a year has been there for the past several years.

   Even before 20 years , the Government servants used to buy the monthly called ‘Swamy’s News’ eagerly and share the things they read in the book with others and debated on it.

   Now it is quit natural that people forget the periodicals, monthly magazines that brings last month’s issues in this modern world in which information technology developed a lot and people have the facility to know the facts in and around the world immediately and share their thoughts through social media.

Dearness Allowance from January 2013 - 6th CPC Recommendations on merger of 50% Dearness Allowance.

   "No any recommendation in 6th CPC Report on merger of 50% Dearness allowance with basic pay at any stage"...

   Dearness Allowance from January 2013 – 6th CPC Recommendation

   As of now nobody knows the correct reason why the government is delaying the approval of DA hike from January 2013. Actually the delay in announcing the dearness allowance helps the people speculate more about the Governments Plan about whether the 50% DA will be merged or not.

   As per the 6th CPC recommendation accepted by the government, the Dearness Allowance supposed to be enhanced from 1st January of every year has to be paid with salary of month of March. The 6th CPC was very much clear about two things; first one is the formula for calculating the quantum of DA to be paid to central government employees and its frequency. Second one is on Merger of 50% Dearness allowance with Basic pay by converting it as dearness Pay.

   Sixth Pay Commission recommendation on Merger of 50% Dearness Allowance and sanctioning of DA to central government employees.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Ad-hoc Appointment/Promotion — Review of - Regarding.

   The undersigned is directed to say that as per the extant policy of the Government, all posts are to be filled in accordance with provisions of the applicable Recruitment Rules/Service Rules. As explained in this Department’s O.M. No.28036/8/87-Estt.(D) dated 30.03.1988 read with O.M. No.28036/1/2001-Estt.(D) dated 23.07.2001, promotions/ appointments on ad-hoc basis are to be resorted to only in exceptional circumstances mentioned therein, to a post which cannot be kept vacant in consideration of its functional/operational requirement. In spite of these express provisions, it has come to the notice of this Department that the Ministries/Departments are resorting to ad-hoc arrangements in total disregard to the statutory provisions/instructions on the subject as well as proper manpower management and career advancement of the employees.

   2. This Department has been impressing upon all the Ministries/ Departments from time to time to take adequate steps in advance so as to achieve the desired objective of timely convening of the Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) meetings and preparing the approved select panels for regular appointments/promotions within the prescribed time limits. However, at many a time, due to non-adherence to the prescribed norms and procedures by the Ministries/Departments, the approved select panel is not ready in time and ad-hoc arrangements are resorted to. Some Ministries/Departments have taken non-acceptance of their incomplete proposals for DPCs, by the UPSC, as the reason for resorting to ad-hoc appointments. In this regard, as already emphasized in this Department’s O.M. No.22011/3/2011-Estt.(D) dated 24.03.2011, it is reiterated that the responsibility of sending the DPC proposals, complete in all respect, to the UPSC, lies entirely on the administrative Ministries/ Departments concerned.
