Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may satisfy the Government Staff


Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may satisfy the Government Staff
It is believed that Payment of Allowances in Revised pay may at least satisfy the Government Staff, despite the fact that the Pay Hike is not sufficient.7th CPC Allowances

Bapus are annoyed about the inordinate delay in announcing Allowances. Talks are doing rounds that the government is deliberately playing the delaying tactics to make the CG Staff to accept the decisions of Allowance Committee.

Central Staff upset with Pay Hike
Already the Central Government Staff are very much upset with Pay Hike recommended for next Ten Long years. They in fact are not happy about the Arrears paid to them. Though the Govt has defended that the Pay Revision arrears will not be as high as in previous Pay Commission, because Arrears for couple of years had been paid in previous Pay Commission. But this time Pay Revision took place within seven months from the due date. So obviously the Pay Revision Arrears will be lesser than previous Pay Commission.

Though a Committee was formed to review the Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor, it is believed that it was wrapped up already. But the federations are Optimistic. They expect somehow the Committee will help them to pacify the Govt Servants on this particular issue.

But nonpayment of Allowances in revised Pay will certainly axe the feel good factor in Central Government Offices. They are started losing patience over it and expect the government to announce it soon. Because the take home pay after pay revision is unbelievably very low comparing to the previous Pay commission. The Central government should not reduce the rate of Allowances and it should be implemented with effect from 1.1.2016

CIRCULAR LETTER No.27/200/2016/33
24.5.2016
TO ALL OFFICE BEARERS, STATE FEDERATIONS AND
ALL INDIA BANKWISE ORGANISATIONS:
Dear Comrades,
Reg: Compassionate ground appointments in the Banks

Units are aware that despite the guidelines from the Government of India, some of the Banks are not implementing the scheme on compassionate ground appointment properly both in regard to eligibility and also on relaxations in qualifications. In the Associate Banks, even the Govt. guidelines have not been placed before the Boards of the respective Banks and unilateral instructions of the SBI are being adhered to whereby compassionate ground appointments are being denied. From AIBEA we have taken up the matter with the Finance Minister. Arising out of the recent UFBU meeting, UFBU also has addressed a letter to the Finance Minister and same is reproduced herein for the information of our units.

With greetings,
Yours Comradely,
C.H. VENKATACHALAM
GENERAL SECRETARY
UFBU Letter to Finance Minister
IBA/GOVT/2016/139
Date: 21st May, 2016
Shri Arun Jaitley,
Hon'ble Minister of Finance,
Government of India, New Delhi.

Respected Sir,

SCHEME FOR COMPASSIONATE APPOINTMENT IN PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS

We are thankful to you for restoring the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) vide your letter D.O.F.No.18/2/2013 IR dated the 7th August 2014, conveying the approval of the Government to open the Compassionate Appointment in PSBs on the lines of Central Government with a request to the Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) to take appropriate action to circulate the revised scheme to all PSBs for adoption with the approval of their respective Boards. Further, the decision of the Government was conveyed by Ministry of Finance vide letter F.No.18/2/2013 IR dated 05.12.2014 that all PSBs can have both the options i.e., compassionate appointment or payment of lumpsum ex-gratia amount.

2. It will note be out of context to mention here that the issue of restoration of compassionate appointment scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) has been under discussions between UFBU and IBA since the last ten years and in accordance with the suggestion of Department of Financial Services, a joint proposal on broad parameters was submitted by IBA for approval of the Government. The sustained struggle by UFBU ended with your kind intervention resulting in approval as above from the Government of India.

3. However, we are shocked to observe that the managements of some of the banks have unilaterally decided to continue, with certain modifications, the scheme for compassionate appointment in exceptional circumstances only and the scheme for payment of Ex-gratia Lumpsum Amount in lieu of Compassionate Appointment, totally ignoring the approval of Government of India to open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme in Public Sector Banks (PSBs) on the lines of Central Government.

4. Further, the concessions / relaxations, as provided under the scheme envisaged by the Government, as applicable to Central Government employees, such as exemption from the requirement of minimum educational qualification etc., have not been extended in the Banking Industry, thereby making them ineligible and denying the appointments.

5. The unilateral decisions of the managements as above, is not only total ignorance of the directives of the Government of India to open the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines of Central Government but also deliberate utter disregard to the sustained struggle of bank workmen and officers for nearly a decade in getting the scheme approved by the Government.

6. Hence, we earnestly seek your kind intervention in the matter and arrange to appropriately instruct all the Public Sector Banks, which have not introduced the Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines of Central Government, as approved by the Government of India and advised by you and also on provision of concessions / relaxations as applicable to Government employees, under the compassionate appointment scheme.

Please acknowledge receipt of this communication and advise us the developments in this regard.
With best regards
Yours sincerely,
Sd..

FinMin issues instructions for Budget 2017 to 18

The RE (Revised Estimate) meetings of ministries/ departments will be scheduled from October 17.

The annual exercise of budgeting aims at detailing the roadmap for efficient use of public resources taking into account the socio-economic and political priorities. Budgeting involves determination of what is to be done and achieved, the manner in which it is to be done and the resources required for the same.

With government deciding to do away with the Five year Plans post 12th Plan ending 2016-17, the Finance Ministry will carry out resource estimation for funding of various Central schemes and programmes as well as central funding for the State/UT schemes/programmes.

The ministry will be guided by the vision document being prepared by the NITI Aayog, as this will help in setting out the resource priorities of the government.

It has also asked the ministries to come up with multi-year projections of budgetary resources.

"This will need to follow the resource estimation of tax, non-tax and other receipts of the Centre for the budget year and the projection period in the medium term as per the FRBM Act," the circular said.
