Cabinet approves merger of rail budget with general budget

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Finance

21-September-2016 15:59 IST

Cabinet approves merger of rail budget with general budget;

advancement of budget presentation and merger of plan and non-plan classification in budget and accounts  

The Union Cabinet has approved the proposals of Ministry of Finance on certain landmark budgetary reforms relating to (i) the merger of Railway budget with the General budget, (ii) the advancement of the date of Budget presentation from the last day of February to the 1st of February and (iii) the merger of the Plan and the Non-Plan classification in the Budget and Accounts. All these changes will be put into effect simultaneously from the Budget 2017-18.

Merger of Railway Budget with the General Budget:

The arrangements for merger of Railway budget with the General budget have been approved by the Cabinet with the following administrative and financial arrangements-

(i)  The Railways will continue to maintain its distinct entity -as a departmentally run commercial undertaking as at present;

(ii) Railways will retain their functional autonomy and delegation of financial powers etc. as per the existing guidelines;

(iii)The existing financial arrangements will continue wherein Railways will meet all their revenue expenditure, including ordinary working expenses, pay and allowances and pensions etc. from their revenue receipts;

(iv)The Capital at charge of the Railways estimated at Rs.2.27 lakh crore on which annual dividend is paid by the Railways will be wiped off. Consequently, there will be no dividend liability for Railways from 2017-18 and Ministry of Railways will get Gross Budgetary support. This will also save Railways from the liability of payment of approximately Rs.9,700 crore annual dividend to the Government of India;
The presentation of separate Railway budget started in the year 1924, and has continued after independence as a convention rather than under Constitutional provisions.

The merger would help in the following ways:

· The presentation of a unified budget will bring the affairs of the Railways to centre stage and present a holistic picture of the financial position of the Government.

· The merger is also expected to reduce the procedural requirements and instead bring into focus, the aspects of delivery and good governance.

· Consequent to the merger, the appropriations for Railways will form part of the main Appropriation Bill.

Advancement of the Budget presentation:

The   Cabinet   has   also   approved, in principle, another   reform   relating   to   budgetary   process,   for advancement of the date of Budget presentation from the last day of February to a suitable date.  The exact date of presentation of Budget for 2017-18 would be decided keeping in view the date of assembly elections to be held in States.

This would help in following ways:

· The advancement of budget presentation by a month and completion of Budget related legislative business before 31st  March would pave the way for early completion of Budget cycle and enable Ministries and Departments to ensure better planning and execution of schemes from the beginning of the financial year and utilization of the full working seasons including the first quarter.

· This will also preclude the need for seeking appropriation through 'Vote on Account' and enable implementation of the legislative changes in tax; laws for new taxation measures from the beginning of the financial year.

Merger of Plan and Non Plan classification in Budget and Accounts:

The third proposal approved by the Cabinet relates to the merger of Plan and Non Plan classification in Budget and Accounts from 2017-18, with continuance of earmarking of funds for Scheduled Castes Sub-Plan/Tribal Sub-Plan. Similarly, the allocations for North Eastern States will also continue.
This would help in resolving the following issues:

· The Plan/Non-Plan bifurcation of expenditure has led to a fragmented view of resource allocation to various schemes, making it difficult not only to ascertain cost of delivering a service but also to link outlays to outcomes.

· The bias in favour of Plan expenditure by Centre as well as the State Governments has led to a neglect of essential expenditures on maintenance of assets and other establishment related expenditures for providing essential social services.

· The merger of plan and non-plan in the budget is expected to provide appropriate budgetary framework having focus on the revenue, and capital expenditure.

3.  Nature of Contempt Petition Alleged And Material Facts:

The petitioners herein are the Applicants in OA No. 289 of 2013 on the file of this Hon’ble Tribunal. The petitioners herein filed the above OA seeking to declare that the Inspectors (Posts) under the Department of Posts are legally eligible and entitled to grant of the revised pay structure of Grade Pay of Rs. 4600/- in the Pay Band PB-2 with effect from 01-01-2006 in terms of Annexure A-8 Office Memorandum dated 13-11-2009 and Annexure A-10 OM dated 16-11-2009 and denial of it to the Inspector (Posts) is arbitrary, discriminatory and violative of Articles 14 and 16(1) of the Constitution of India and to set aside Annexure A-22 and A-23. The petitioners also sought to direct the respondents to grant the Inspector (Posts) the revised pay structure of Grade Pay of Rs. 4600/- in the Pay Band PB-2 as has been granted to Inspectors in CBDT/CBEC and Assistants in Central Secretariat Service recruited through Combined Graduate Level Examination-Scheme A by the Staff Selection Commission with effect from their date of entitlement with consequential benefits including arrears of pay and allowances and for other consequential reliefs.

The above Original Application was finally heard on 09-09-2015 and disposed by Order dated 16-10-2015 directing the respondent No.1 (respondent herein) to send Annexure A-19 Order along with the representation made by the 1st Applicant Association, the recommendations made by the Department of Posts thereon along with copies of the relevant portion of the 4th, 5th and 6th Central Pay Commission recommendations regarding the pay of Inspector (Posts) to the Member-Secretary of the 7th CPC requesting to making appropriate recommendations. Respondent No.1 shall also submit an explanation before the 7th CPC as to why despite the Cabinet Resolution accepting the recommendations in paragraph 7.6.14 of the report of the 6th CPC, the officials in the Finance Ministry took a different view and also under what authority the said official made such notings in Annexure A-22 file Note. In the event the 7th Pay Commission has reached the final stage of its proceedings and is not in a position to include this matter in its report, then the Finance Secretary/ 1st respondent shall at his level consider the matter as directed by this Tribunal in OA No. 381/2010 keeping in view the detailed proposal with justification submitted by the Department of Posts, the detailed observations made by the Tribunal in the earlier O.A and also the present order and shall pass a detailed and speaking order addressing all these points within 30 days from the date of receipt of a copy of the Order. A photocopy of the above Order dated 16-10-2015 in O.A No. 289 of 2013 is produced herewith and marked as Annexure P-1

1. The Department of Posts forwarded the judgment along with File No. 2-12/2013-PCC on 25-04-2016 as evidenced from the reply given under the Right to Information Act. A photocopy of the above reply dated 11-07-2016 along with File Note in File No. 2-12/2013-PCC is produced herewith and marked as Annexure P-2

2.   The 1st respondent received the copy of the Order in OA No. 289 of 2013 on 02-05-2016. However, the respondent failed and deliberately failed to implement Annexure P-1 without any lawful excuse and justifiable ground till date.

The respondents are duty bound to implement Annexure P-1 Order within the time limit stipulated by this Hon'ble Tribunal in Annexure P-1. However, no steps have been taken by the respondents to implement Annexure P-1 Order even after the lapse of more than 10 months. There is a wilful and conscious refusal to implement the lawful Orders of this Honourable Tribunal on the part of the respondents as is exhibited by their studied indifference in complying with Annexure P-1 Order.  Te conduct of the respondent is calculated to interfere with the administration of justice and brings it into disrespect and exhibits a desire to harass the petitioners. It amounts to an abuse of the process of the Court. It constitutes contempt of Court (Civil) punishable under Section 12 of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971. 

The respondents cannot refuse to implement, the directions and orders contained in Annexure P-1 Order of this Honourable Tribunal within the stipulated time limit. The non-implementation of Annexure P-1 Order by the respondents is a deliberate and wilful disobedience to Annexure P-1 Order of this Honourable Tribunal and defiance to the authority of this Hon'ble Tribunal. Therefore, the respondents have rendered themselves liable to be proceeded against under the Contempt of Court Act, 1971.
It is submitted that Contempt proceeding against a person who has failed to comply with the Court's Order serves a dual purpose! (1) Vindication of the public interest by punishment of contemptuous conduct and (2) coercion to compel the contemner to do what the law requires of him.  It has been so held by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in the decision in Aligarh Municipal Board Vs. Ekka Tonga Mazdoor Union reported in AIR 1970 SC - 1767.  The respondent cannot offer any valid or good reason for not complying with the order or defer the implementation in disregard of the specific time-limit set in the Order of this Hon'ble Tribunal.

It is submitted that in the light of the facts and circumstances, the respondents are guilty of wilful and deliberate disobedience to the lawful directions and orders issued by this Hon'ble Tribunal in Annexure P-1 Order dated 16-10-2015 in OA No.289 of 2013.  The respondents are guilty of committing civil contempt and they are liable to be dealt with for the above contumacious conduct under Section 12 of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 read with Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985.

Relief

In the circumstances adumbrated above, it is respectfully submitted that this Hon'ble Tribunal may be pleased to proceed against the respondents for committing Civil Contempt of this Hon'ble Tribunal under the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 read with Section 17 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985 for securing enforcement of Annexure P-1 Order to meet the ends of justice.

2000 central government organisations to accept online RTI applications

New Delhi: Around 2,000 Central government organisations will soon be accepting applications under the Right to Information (RTI) Act through online medium.

The move is based on the suggestion given by a group of secretaries before Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has started a massive exercise to train nodal officers of all such public authorities who have not yet started accepting the RTI pleas online.

In a stern directive, it has asked all the government departments to attend a workshop being organised by the DoPT in this regard without fail. In case, the officers concerned fail to attend the workshop, a username will be created suo-motu and all these public authorities will be made live on the RTI portal.

As many as 690 public authorities have been aligned so far on the especially designed website www.rtionline.gov.in to enable online filing of the RTI applications.

The DoPT had during June and July this year conducted a workshop for 330 public authorities. Of these, 51 nodal officers did not attend the workshop.

Since all the public authorities (around 2,000) will have to be aligned in a time bound manner ( a target/timeline fixed and monitored at the highest level), DoPT is organising yet another training workshop as a special drive for those defaulted public authorities and nodal officers who did not attend the workshop

It requested that all nodal officers under 51 public authorities attend the workshop without fail on Tuesday, the DoPT said in the order.

It may be noted by all concerned that no further opportunity would be given to the nodal officers after this workshop, the order said.

In case the concerned nodal officer is unable to attend this training, the username will be created suo motu and the concerned public authority will be made live on the RTI online portal with effect from September 30, by DoPT, it said.

The RTI Act, 2005, enables a citizen to seek tome-bound reply on governance related matters. People can also make payment of RTI fee online.

On the occasion of completion of more than 10 years of implementation of the RTI Act, the Central Information Commission is going to hold annual convention in October, the DoPT said.
