The first meeting of the National Anomaly Committee was held on 12th December, 2009. Secretary (Personnel) chaired the meeting.On behalf of the Confederation, Com. S.K. Vyas, President and Com. K.K.N. Kutty Secretary General attended and participated in the discussion.In
the opening remark, Com. Umraomal Purohit drew the attention of the
Chairman of the non-functioning of the Departmental Councils in various
departments and the consequent non setting up of Departmental Anomaly
Committees.He also raised the issue of the order of the DOPT defining the term Anomaly, which was at variance with the one given in 1997.He
recalled the discussion he had with the official side in the matter
when it was agreed that the definition of the term would be the same as
was in the order of 1997.Responding to the remarks made
by the Staff Side Secretary, the Chairman said that his office would
take steps to ensure the functioning of the JCM at all levels and informed the meeting that the National Council of the JCM would meet on 16th January, 2009 and the notice therefore has already been issued.On
the question of anomaly, it was informed by the Chairman, that all
efforts would be taken to address all questions of anomaly and resolve
them.The official side clarified that all questions of disparity in relativities would also be addressed except on those on which the 6th CPC has gone into and taken decision enumerating reasons.The
Chairman asked the staff Side to bring to the notice of the DOPT/DOE of
all those items which stand rejected by the concerned Departmental
Anomaly Committees taking shelter under the extant definition.
We now reproduce the items which were discussed and the decisions arrived on each of them.
The item Nos. 1 to 4 and 5(iii)(iv) and 7 were grouped together and discussed as they were identical in content.For the sake of convenience, we reproduce item No. 3 which covers all the above mentioned items.
Fixation of Pay in Revised Pay Scale
The VI CPC in para 2.2.19 (vii) has indicated that where prerevised pay
scales have been merged it has been done by extending the existing
minimum prescribed for the highest pay scale with which the other
scales are being merged. Accordingly it has also been stipulated in
7(1) (A) of the CCS (Revised pay) Rules, 2008 that if the minimum of
the Revised pay Band / pay Scale is more that what is determined by
multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86
and rounding of the resultant figure to the next multiple of 10, the
pay shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised pay Band / pay Scale.
Note 2B below Rule 7, ibid and illustration 4B given in the Explanatory
Memorandum to the Revised pay Rule apply to cases of merger of pay
Scales.Note 2 B states that pay in the revised Pay Bands
will be fixed in the manner prescribed in accordance with Clause (A)
(i) And clause (A) (ii) of Rule 7. In illustration 4B a case of an
employee in the pre revised pay scale Rs.5000-8000 drawing Rs.5600 as
on 1.1.2006 in the pay scale of 6500-10500 has been indicated with
which the pay scale of Rs.5000-8000 stands merged.
Taking these into account
the pay in the Pay Band in the case of all employees in the Pay Scales
of Rs.5000-8000 and Rs.5500-9000 has to be fixed at Rs. 6500 multiplied
by 1.86 i.e. Rs.12090. The fixation tables for pay scales 5000-8000 and
5500-9000may therefore be modified fixing the pay in the pay band at
Rs.12090 wherever it is less than that amount.
Illustration 4B in the explanatory memorandum to the Revised Pay Rules 2008 may be modified as under:-
Existing Scale of Pay5000-8000
Pay Band PB-29300-34800
Merged with Pay Scale 6500-10500
Existing Basic Pay as on 1.1.06 Rs.5600
Pay in the PB-2Rs.5600 X 1.86 = 10420As per Clause (A) (i) of Rule 7(i) of Revised Pay rules 2008
Pay in the PB-2Rs.6500- X 1.86 = 12090As per Clause (A) (ii) of Rule 7 (i) of Revised Pay Rules 2008
Grade Pay Rs.4200
Revised Basic PayRs.16290
The Staff Side pointed out that what has been recommended by the 6th
CPC in Para 2.2.19(vii_ in respect of fixation of minimum pay in the
Pay band for merged pay scales had not been taken into account while
computing the pay band and the table.After some discussion, the official side stated to have a re-look into the matter.
Item No. 5(i)
On Revised Pay Rules. 2008
has been mentioned under sub rule 4 thereof that the option once
exercised shall be final and should be exercised within three months
from the date
of notification of the rule vide Sub rule I thereof. Since it is very
difficult to comprehend and assess the implication of such option, we
propose that the 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
Side Side also pointed out during the discussion that the option
exercised by the officials under F.R. 22(I)(A(1) on promotion has been
restricted to only first promotion, which appears to be unreasonable.The official side has agreed to examine whether the above option can be allowed to cover all promotions.
Item No. 5(ii)
Special allowance and qualification pay which are taken for fixation
purposes on promotion should be doubled with effect from 1.1.2006 and
not from 1.9.2008 as it cannot be construed to be an allowance. If this
is not done, senior employees will suffer loss in emoluments, in case
of persons who are promoted during the period between 1.1.2006 and
It was pointed out that the item relating to 5th CPC is still pending at the Standing Committee.The Official Side stated that the item would be covered when a decision is taken on the item relating to 5th CPC.
Item No. 5(vi)
(vi) Rule 9. Date of next increment
is seen after going through the stipulation in the above rules that a
person whose increment falls on 1.1.2006 will get the increment on
1.1.2006 in the pre revised pay scale and will get the next increment
in the revised pay structure on 1.7.2006 i.e. on expiry of six months.
Similarly those, whose next increment is between 1st July, 2006 and 1st
December, 2006 would also be granted next increment in the revised pay
structure on 1.7.2006. On the other hand, the persons whose increment
dates are between 1st Feb. 2006 and 1st June 2006
have to wait for more than 12 months to get the next increment on
1.7.2006. This is quite anomalous. In the case of those who retire
during the period between 1st Feb. and 30th June,
they will suffer a loss of one increment perpetually thus affecting
their pension. It is, therefore proposed that the 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.
The 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
Staff Side however, pointed out that they have made the suggestion for
a one time measure on the specific understanding that Rule 9 of the
Revised Pay Rules 2008 has no applicable in the fixation of increment
date in future as in those cases, the Fundamental Rules will have the
application.The Official side was of the opinion that the Revised Pay Rules will override the provisions of the Fundamental Rules.The Staff Side then contended that the increment of an official cannot be postponed except on award of a penalty afterinitiation
of the disciplinary proceedings. The official side after some
discussion agreed to reconsider the issue in the light of the
contention made by the Staff Side.
(vii).Tax deduction from salary:
Spread over of the arrears of salary is permissible under section 89 (a) of the I.T. Act.No
tax will thus become payable by Group D employees on account of receipt
of arrears eventually. Therefore, executive instructions may be issued
not to deduct any tax from the arrears payment pertaining to the Group
D employees. In respect of others, they may be allowed to exercise
option to tax the arrears either on receipt basis or accrual basis.
Since the arrears have all been paid after deduction of tax, this item was not pressed.
Item No. 5(vii)Temporary Status Casual Labourers
per existing scheme the employees who are afforded temporary status are
paid the wages computed with reference to the minimum of the
corresponding scale of pay of regular employees. In the case of Group D
temporary status employees, it will become necessary that they are
afforded the requisite training if they are non- matriculates.
Orders would be issued in the case of temporary status employees.In
the case of those who died /retired between 1.1.06 and 1.9.2008 grant
of grade pay of Rs. 1800 without training was raised by the Staff Side.It was agreed that the Govt. would take a decision in their casefavorably.
Item No. 6.
Benefit on promotion.
is an accepted proposition that an employee when promoted to a higher
post involving higher responsibility should get a suitable raise in his
salary. It was on this consideration that FR 22-C was framed whereby
the promotee was first granted an increment in the lower Pay Scale and
then fixed at the appropriate (next) stage in the higher grade.
the time of V CPC it was agreed that minimum increase in salary on
promotion shall not be less then Rs.100/- There are certain grades in
which, on promotion, a hike of Rs.650/- is being allowed with reference
to pre-revised pay scale.
these circumstances grant of only one increment in the lower Pay Band /
Pay scale and difference in grade pay, if there be any, being granted
on promotion is certainly inadequate. We therefore propose that minimum
benefit on promotion should not be less than 10% of the Pay+Grade Pay
of the feeder post.
The official side stated that the above item was not covered under the definition of anomaly.However, after some discussion, it was agreed that the official side would further discuss the issue outside the forum of the Anomaly Committee.
Item No. 7.
Fixation of pay on promotion.
minimum Entry pay with Grade Pay in the revised pay structure for
direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 has been specific vide
first Schedule, Part –A, Section II of the Gazette Notification of the
Govt. of India, Ministry of Finance No. G.S.R. 622 (E) dated 29.8.2008.
On promotion, the pay of the promotees should not be less than the direct recruits.
In VI CPC structure there is no pay scale and new concept of grade pay has been inducted, which should determine the status.As such the following provisions need to be inserted below clarification 2.'The method of Fixation of Pay on promotion on or after 1.1.2006.
promotion to the higher grade pay of an employee should be fixed
appropriately and in any case it should not be less than the entry Pay
in the revised pay structure for direct recruits appointed on of after
1.1.2006 for the post." further, on promotion to the next higher grade
pay an employee should be fixed by adding 10% of pay, plus the grade
pay as demanded by NC/JCM in its memorandum submitted to the Chairman,
NC/JCM/Cabinet secretary on 8.4.2008.
The Official Side agreed to issue enabling orders in the matter.
Item No. 8.
Refixation of pension/family pension.
9 of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension's O.M.
No. F.No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 1.9.2008 states as under:-
consolidated pension / family pension as worked out in accordance with
provisions of para 4.1 above shall be treated as final basic pension
with effect from 1.1.2006 and shall qualify for grant of Dearness
Relief sanctioned thereafter.".
This has left uncovered the provision made in para 4.2 of the same OM, which lays down as under:-
fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised
pension in no case, shall be lower than fifty present of the minimum of
the pay in the pay band plus the grade pay corresponding to the
pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired. In the case
of HAG + and above scales, this will be fifty percent of the minimum of
the revised pay scale."
Since refixation of pension has been allowed both under paras 4.1 and 4.2, they should both he covered in para 9 of the OM.It is requested that para 9 of the said OM may be revised including both paras 4.1 and 4.2 thereof.
Orders have been issued vide O.M.dated 12th and 14th September, 2009
Item. No. 9.
Anomaly in pension for Government Servants who retired/Died in harness between 1.1.2006 and 1.9. 2006
Sixth Central Pay Commission lays down inter-alia that once an employee
renders the minimum pensionable service of 20 years, pension should be
paid at 50% of the average emoluments received during the past 10
months or the pay last down, whichever is more beneficial to the
As per the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension O.M. F.No. 38/37/08-P&P(W)(A) dated 2nd September 2008, these orders shall come into force with effect from the date of issue of this OM, namely 2nd
September 2008 and shall be, applicable to all Government Servants
becoming entitled to pension after rendering the minimum qualifying
service of 20 years or on completion of 10 years qualifying service in
accordance with rule 49(2) of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972.
the Govt. servants who have retired on or after 1.1.2006 but before the
date of issue of this OM (2.9.2008) have been debarred from this
benefit. They will be governed by the rules/ orders which were in force
immediately before coming into effect of these orders. In other words
their pension will be calculated on average emoluments received during
the last 10 months and not on the actual pay last drawn. It is
requested that this discrimination should be removed.
Orders are under issue.The Staff Side raised the inordinate delay in fixing the revised pension and disbursement of arrears to pensioners.The official side assured to monitor the payment of arrears to pensioners.The
refusal on the part of many banks to issue the due and drawn statement
even on requisition was also brought to the notice of the Chairman.The Director (Pension) assured that suitable instructions would be issued in this regard to all Banks.
Commutation of pension.
minimum period of service for eligibility for pension is 10 years. For
appointment to Government Service the minimum age is 18 years. In view
of this, if a person is appointed at the age of 18 years he cannot
become eligible for pension unless he has served for a period of at
least 10 years and attained the age of 28 years i.e. when his birthday
falls in the 29th years.
table adopted a per the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and
Pension's OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 2.9.2008 shows the minimum
age of next birthday after retirement as 20 which is not understood. It
is requested that suitable amendment to the table referred to may be
The item was withdrawn by the Staff Side.
Item No.11 to 14. These items were deferred for discussion at the next meeting.
Parity in pension of all pre 1996 retirees with those who retired on or after 1.1.2006
Government have already accepted in principle that there shall be
parity in pension amongst pensioners irrespective of the date from
which they had retired.
pension of all pre 1986 retirees was revised with effect from 1.1.96 by
first determining the notional pay which would have been fixed as on
1.1.86 (treating as if the employees were in service on that date) and
then the Notional Pension was updated by applying the same fitment
formula which was applied to serving employees.
therefore demanded that the notional pay of all pre 1996 retirees may
be fixed as on 1.1.96 in terms of Revised Pay Rules, 1996 and the
notional pension as on 1.1.96 may be revised w.e.f. 1.1.06 by applying
the same fitment formula which is applied in the case of serving
employees i.e. by multiplying the notional pension as on 1.1.96 by 1.86
+ the Grade Pay of the Pay Scale (V CPC) from which they would have
revision of pension has been done by applying the formula of Basic
Pension as on 1.1.96 + Dearness Pension (50% of Basic Pension) +
Dearness Relief on Basic Pension + Dearness Pension+40% of Basic
is not the same that has been granted to serving employees. In whose
case the Grade Pay which is the fitment benefit is 40% of the maximum
of the Pre-revised Pay Scale.
such the Pensioners should also be granted 50% the of Grade Pay of the
Pay Scale from which they had retired by way of fitment benefit and not
40% of Basic Pension.
The Staff Side pointed out that the 6th
CPC in order to maintain the existing modified parity between the
present and future retirees had indicated that it would be necessary to
allow the same fitment benefit as is being recommended for the existing
Government employees vide para 5.1.47 in page 338.However,
the Commission recommended that all past pensioners should be allowed
fitment benefit equal to 40% of the basic pension. The statement and
the recommendation made to give effect to the statement was at variance
giving rise to anomaly and disparity in pension entitlement between the
past pensioners and the future pensioners.After detailed discussion, the official side agreed to consider the issue once again.
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.
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.
The information given below is only openion. Please dont take it for authenticated one. As per the figures available from Labour Bureau, Government of India (http://labourbureau.nic.in/indtab.html)
it can be assumed that minimum of 8% DA hike can be assumed from
January 2010, totaling 35% from current 27%. This is calculated
assuming that the All India Consumer Price Index (AICPI) remains
unchanged for November and December, which are yet to be announced.
These figures for November and December 2009 will be announced on 31
Dec 2009 and 29 Jan 2010 respectively. Keeping in view of the rapidly
rising prices, the figures are expected to increase further
