Dear Comrades,

The Department of Personnel has placed on their website the minutes of the last anomaly committee meeting. The Staff Side had been provided with the draft minutes a few days back. The matter was discussed with the official Side Secretary by a few members of the Staff Side. It was decided that the amendments required would be communicated to them in writing and thereafter the same could be finalized after further discussion with the Staff Side, a procedure that had been followed till date. Accordingly, the Staff Side had submitted the amendments to the draft minutes. It was informed to the Staff Side that the amendments would not be acceptable to the official side. We were given to understand that the Secretary, Staff Side indicated for the convening of the next meeting of the Anomaly Committee as many items could not be discussed earlier and finalization of the minutes of the two meetings together. Contrary to this request the Department of Personnel has gone ahead and issued the minutes, which is not in consonance with the understanding reached in this regard as also at variance with what happened in the Anomaly Committee meeting. The official minutes can be accessed from the official website of the Department of Personnel which is given hereunder.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Draft minutes of the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee. Regarding.

Kindly refer to the discussion, some of the Staff Side members had with you on the above subject.

We send herewith the text of amendments required to be made in the draft minutes.

Thanking you,

                                                                      Yours faithfully,

                                                                        U.M.Purohit.

                                                                        Secretary:

 

Text of Amendments required in the draft minutes of the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee held on 12th December, 2009.

Page No.4. Item No.1-4. Line No. (in page No.4):4. Add the following as the penultimate sentence:

The Staff Side reiterated that it was an anomaly precisely for the reason that vide Para 2.2.19, the 6th CPC has stated unambiguously that where pre revised pay scales have been merged it has been done by extending the minimum prescribed for the highest pay scale with which the other pay scales are being merged. However, the pay band has been fixed with reference to the minimum of the lowest pay scales which have been merged.

Page No.4 Item No. 5. Line No. 15. The last sentence in the para (i) of agenda Item No. 5. may be replaced with the following:

The JS(Per) agreed to allow the employees to revise their option and to delegate powers to the administrative ministries to allow such revised options.

Page No. 5. Item No. 5(iv) Line 16. Add the following sentence. The Staff Side further stated that the pay granted to the fresh entrant is the deemed minimum pay of the post and no promotees can be fixed below the minimum pay of the post to which he is promoted on regular basis.

Replace the last sentence in the said para with the following:

The Department of Expenditure agreed to issue enabling orders in the matter.

Page No. 6. Item No. 5(v). Add the following at the end of the paragraph.

The Staff Side further stated that the Revised Pay Rules in relaxation of F.R. are meant only for the purpose of fixing the pay in the revised Pay scales. It has no application thereafter. It is on this specific understanding that the staff side had demanded the one time relaxation as otherwise the one time relaxation would not address similar issues of future recruitees and promotees. The Official Side contended that the Revised Pay Rules would override the provisions of the Fundamental Rules permanently. The Staff Side then contended that an increment has to be granted on completion of one year service. It must not be postponed except on award of a penalty on initiation of disciplinary proceedings. After some further discussion, the official side agreed to reconsider this matter.

Page No. 6 Item No.5(vii).Add the following at the beginning of the paragraph:

The Staff Side stated that as per the existing scheme the temporary status employees have been granted the minimum of the corresponding scale of pay of regular employees (with benefit of annual increments). Therefore it would be necessary that these employees if they are non matriculates are given the requisite training and the benefit of fixation of pay at Rs. 7000/- (with grade pay of Rs. 1800_ with effect from 1.01. 2006. The Secretary, Staff Side pointed out that in respect of those who have retired/died during the period between 1.1.2006 and 1.9. 2008 it would not be possible to impart training to them. He, therefore, suggested, referring to his letter in this regard that they may be given the benefit of Grade Pay of Rs. 1800 with effect from 1.01.2006. Regarding granting of temporary status to casual labourers, JS(Per) informed that the Department of Expenditure had already rendered their advice in the matter to JS(E) DOPT. Further action is to be taken by DOPT. The Chairman said that this issue would be considered sympathetically.

Page No. 7.

Item No.15,16 & 17- Parity in Pension to all Pensioners. Line No. 17.

Kindly omit 16 and 17 in the heading as these items were not discussed at the meeting.

Add the following in Line No. 23 after the sentence ending with the word ‘recommendations.’

The Staff Side further stated that the 6th CPC in para 5.1.47 has stated that in order to maintain the existing modified parity between present and future retirees it will be necessary to allow the same fitment benefit as is being recommended for the existing Government employees.

Page No. 8 Item No.15. Line.3. Add the word "same" in between the words "allowing" and "fitment"

Page No. 8 Item No.15. Line 3. Replace the words: "equal to 40% of their existing pension" with the following:

As is being recommended to the existing Government employees

Page No. 8 Item No.15. Line.9 Replace the following sentence

"Officers of Department of Expenditure stated that this was not the intent of the recommendation of the Pay Commission.

With the following:

After some discussions, the official side agreed to re-examine the issue.

Add the following in page No. 8 at the end.

"At the conclusion of the meeting, the Staff Side took up the matter concerning non representation of Postal Federations in the National Council as some members of a Federation which could not muster even 5% membership had been approaching one court or the other in a bid to delay the verification process and consequent recognition of the Associations and Federations in the Postal Department. As it would be a never ending process, the denial for the unions who had mustered more than 75% of the membership representation in the National Council would be a miscarriage of justice, the Staff Side added.. The Director (SR) of the Postal Department, who had represented the Postal Department in the official side agreed with the contention of the Staff Side and reported to the Chairman, that they had granted adhoc recognition to the Unions who had mustered the requisite membership and the Department Council had also been convened and met on adhoc basic. The question of granting of representation to the representatives of the Staff in the National Council had been referred to the Department of Personnel and their advice in the matter was being solicited. The Chairman assured the Staff Side to look into the matter and take appropriate decision soon.

The denial of revised higher Grade Pay to Master Craftsmen of Workshops in MMS in the Postal Department, while affording the same to those in Railways and Defence was also raised by the Staff Side. The Department of Expenditure pointed out that they had not received any reference from the Postal Department in this matter, whereas the official side representative of the Postal Department stated that they had referred this matter to them earlier. After some discussion, it was agreed that the Department of Expenditure and the Postal Department would sort out this matter expeditiously."

1.

Fixation of Pay in Revised Pay Scale:

As per Clause (A) (ii) of Rule 7 (i) of Revised Pay Rules 2008, the Pay fixation for the pre revised basic pay of Rs.5600 in the scale of Rs.5000 – 8000 should be (Rs.6500 X 1.86 = Rs.12090) + Rs.4200 GP = Rs.16290, instead of (Rs.5600 X 1.86 = 10420) + Rs.4200 GP = Rs.14620 (As per Clause (A) (i) of Rule 7(i) of Revised Pay rules 2008)

After some discussion, the official side stated to have a re-look into the matter.

2.

Option

First option exercised within three months may not be treated as final and the employees be permitted to revise the option within six month of the date of exercising the first option.

The official side has agreed to allow another option.

The official side has agreed to examine whether the above option can be allowed to cover all promotions.

3.

Date of Next Increment

Persons, whose increment falls between 1st February and 1st June, 2006 may be given one increment on 1.1.2006 as a one time measure.

Official side agreed to issue orders to cover those in service between 1.1.2006 and 1.7.2006 as a one time measure.

The official side after some discussion agreed to reconsider the issue in the light of the contention made by the Staff Side.

Grade Pay Rs 4600 for Sr LPS, LPG, LPP, SrGds Gd, PassGd, MExGd & 4800 for LPME wef 1.1.06

Finance ministry has granted 4600 grade pay to 6500-10500 wef 01-01-2006

F.No. 1/1/2008-IC

Government of India

Ministry of Finance

Department of Revenue

New Delhi,dated 13th November,2009.

 

Subject:- Grant of the revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4600 in the pay band PB-2 to posts that existed in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 1.1.2006 and which were granted the normal replacement pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4200 in the pay band PB-2

Sixth Pay commission recommended merger of the three pre-revised scales of Rs.5000-8000, Rs.5500-9000 and Rs.6500-10500 and replaced them by the revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4200 in the pay band PB-2. Vide para 2.2.21 (v) of its report, the Commission recommended that on account of the merger of these 3 scales, some posts which constituted feeder and promotion grades would come to lie in an identical grade. The Commission gave specific recommendations in its Report granting higher grade pay of Rs.4600 to some categories of these posts. As regards the other posts, the Commission recommended that it should first be seen if the posts in theses 3 scales can be merged without any functional disturbance and if possible, the same should be done, Further, the Commission recommended that in case it is not feasible to merge the posts in these pay scales n functional consideration, the posts in the scale of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs.5500-9000 should be merged with the posts in the scale of Rs.6500-10500 being upgraded to the next higher grade in the pay band PB-2 with grade pay of Rs.4600 corresponding to the pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500, the posts being upgraded from the scale of Rs.6500-10500 should be merged with the post in the scale of Rs. 7450-10500.
The above recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission were notified vide para (ii), Section I in Parts B and C of the First Schedule to the CCS (RP) Rules,2008. While Part B of the First Schedule of he CCS(RP) Rules relates to revised pay scales for common categories of staff, Part C notifies revised pay structure for certain posts in Ministries, Departments and Union Territories. The above provisions of the Rules specifically mentioned that up-gradations in terms of para (ii) Section I may be done in consultation with Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance.
Consequent upon the Notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, Department of Expenditure has received a large number of references from administrative ministries / departments proposing up-gradations of the posts which were in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 1.1.2006 by been granting them grade pay of Rs.4600 in the pay band PB-2. The matter has been considered and it has now been decided that the posts which were granted the normal replacement pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4200 in the pay band PB-2, will be granted pay of Rs.4600 in the pay band PB-2 corresponding to the pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500 w.e.f.1.1.2006. Further, in terms of the aforementioned provisions of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, in case a post already existed in the pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500, the posts being upgraded from the scale of Rs.5600-10500 should be merged with the post in the scale of Rs.7450-11500.
Accordingly, in terms of Rule 6 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, revised pay of Government servants in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 who were earlier granted grade pay of Rs.4200 and who have already exercised their option for drawal of pay in the revised pay structure in the format prescribed in the Second Schedule to the Rules, will be fixed again in accordance with illustration 4A annexed to CCS (RP)Rules,008.
In case of all such Government servants in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 who were earlier granted grade pay of Rs.4200 and who had opted to have their pay fixed under CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, action as prescribed in this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 30th August, 2008 will be taken. In case a Government servant desires to revise his earlier option for coming over to the revised pay structure, he may be permitted to do so without any reference to this Department.
6. On account of pay fixation in the revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4600 in the pay band PB-2, arrears of pay will be recalculated and difference of arrears in respect of the entire amount will be paid immediately. The manner of drawal of arrears has already been indicated in this Departments/s O.M. of even number dated 30.8.2008.
