Ref.        : Dte Memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 09-12-2016

Respected Sir,

          Your kind attention is invited to this Association’s letter number even dated 7/1/2017 followed by reminder dated 11/4/2017 regarding holding of supplementary DPC for the year 2016-17. As per Directorate Memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 09-12-2016, 105 Inspector Line Officers promoted on regular basis in PS Gr. B cadre, but few of them have said to be declined the promotion and their declination letters have already be sent by respective circles to Directorate.

Furthermore it is brought to your notice that 5 officers against whom punishment is current have been selected in DPC (para 5 of memo dated 9-12-2016), but out of these, punishment of 3 officers is found current up to 2018, and therefore these officers will not get promotion till expiry of punishment period. The promotion against these 3 officers may be treated as vacancy for supplementary DPC. 

It is therefore requested to your kind honour to look into the matter personally and cause necessary instructions to SPG Division to release the list of officers who declined the PS Gr. B promotion and arrange to conduct supplementary DPC at the earliest please.

With profound regards.

7th Pay Commission: Union cabinet likely to discuss revised allowances this week, NJCA tells govt employees

In a letter to Central government employees, NJCA general secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra informed them about his meeting with Cabinet Secretary on June 15. 

The Narendra Modi-led Cabinet is likely to decide on revised allowances for Central government allowances this week.

The Union cabinet skipped the issue of revised allowances in the previous two meetings but is expected to take it up this week before Prime Minister Narendra Modi kicks off his Portugal-US-Netherlands trip this weekend.

Reports hint that the House Rent Allowance (HRA) for Central government employees is likely to be fixed at 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent for X, Y and Z cities respectively under the Seventh Pay Commission.

The general secretary of National Joint Council of Action (NJCA)--NJCA is holding talks with the government on behalf of employees--recently met Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha and raised the issue of delay in allowances with him.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AT THE MEETING WITH CABINET SECRETARY AND OTHER DEVELOPMENTS:

In a letter to Central government employees, NJCA general secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra informed them about his meeting with Cabinet Secretary on June 15. The NJCA official expressed "anguish regarding non-settlement of demands of Central government employees, particularly non-approval of the allowances by the Cabinet".

NJCA general secretary said that he was assured by the Cabinet Secretary that "things are in the process and most probably would be placed in the next Cabinet meeting".

The Union Cabinet meets every Wednesday but this time June 21 (a Wednesday) is being celebrated as Yoga Day. The NJCA general secretary said that he was given assurance by the Cabinet Secretary that the decision on allowances would be taken up at the meeting which could happen a day or two later. "We hope that the matter of allowances would be settled within this month," said Shiv Gopal Mishra.

"We have come to know from reliable sources that the Committee on National Pension System (NPS) has also submitted its report and some serious discussion is on for its implementation," NJCA general secretary said.

Earlier, some reports had suggested that the Narendra Modi government could start rolling out revised allowances from July, more than a year after the Union cabinet had okayed the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission in June last year.

The Seventh Pay Commission recommended axing 53 of the 196 allowances for Central government employees besides merging 36 smaller allowances into bigger ones. It also suggested bringing down the HRA rates for by varying degrees depending on the type of city.

The Ashok Lavasa Committee on Allowances, which was tasked with reviewing the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, submitted its report to Arun Jaitley on April 27. The Lavasa report was sent to the Department of Expenditure for a first round of review and then placed before the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) for another round of screening.
After screening the Ashok Lavasa report on allowances, the Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) forwarded the report along with its suggestions to the government following a June 1 meeting.

Government announces 149 new Post Office Passport Seva Kendras

No Indian will have to travel more than 50 km to get their passport, as the government is planning to set up a comprehensive network of Passport Seva Kendras (PSK) across the nation, with major post offices to also provide the service, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Saturday.

Sushma Swaraj announcing the opening of 149 new Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSKs), said these will be set up in the second phase. 

No Indian will have to travel more than 50 km to get their passport, as the government is planning to set up a comprehensive network of Passport Seva Kendras (PSK) across the nation, with major post offices to also provide the service, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Saturday. The Minister, announcing the opening of 149 new Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (POPSKs), said these will be set up in the second phase. In the first phase 86 POPSKs were to be set up — 52 of which are now functional. Apart from centres in the post offices, the government had earlier also announced 16 full-fledged PSKs taking the total number of new centres to the “auspicious” 251, she said.

“When I started at the Ministry, we had only 77 PSKs to cater to the whole nation. I realised that distance was the biggest hurdle for people to get their passports,” she said. Even after pushing through 16 more PSKs apart from 86 of them in post offices, Sushma Swaraj said she felt it was not enough. “We planned to set a target and decided that no individual should have to travel more than 50 km for a passport.” “With that criterion for selection, today I announce 149 new POPSKs,” she said.

Don't report frauds below Rs one lakh to police: CVC to banks

New Delhi, Jun 16 (PTI) The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has asked public sector banks not to report frauds below Rs one lakh to local police, unless their staff is involved in such crimes.

Earlier banks were mandated to report fraud of above Rs 10,000 and below Rs one lakh to police.

The decision was taken by the CVC in consultation with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), taking into the account the practical difficulties faced by public sector banks in reporting such categories of cases.

It has been decided that only if staff of the bank is involved in the fraud cases of below Rs one lakh and above Rs 10,000, would such cases need to be reported or complaint filed with local police station by the bank branch concerned, the commission said in a directive to chiefs of all the banks.

The cases of frauds of upto Rs one lakh and not below Rs 10,000 are to be scrutinised by banks officials concerned for further necessary action, a senior CVC official said.

As of September 30, 2016, the Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) declared by various scheduled commercial banks stood at a whopping Rs 6,65,864 crore, according to an official data.

The NPAs of the country's largest lender State Bank of India is Rs 97,356 crore, followed by Rs 54,640 crore of Punjab National Bank and Rs 44,040 crore of Bank of India, it said.

Bank of Baroda has NPAs of Rs 35,467 crore, Canara Bank Rs 31,466 crore, Indian Overseas Bank Rs 31,073 crore, Union Bank of India Rs 27,891 crore, IDBI Bank Limited Rs 25,973 crore, Central Bank of India Rs 25,718 crore, Allahabad Bank Rs 18,852 crore and Oriental Bank of Commerce Rs 18,383 crore, said the data, which was given by the government in Rajya Sabha in August last year.

Government makes Aadhaar must for bank a/cs, high value transactions

The government has made the Aadhaar card mandatory for opening bank accounts and conducting financial transactions of Rs 50,000 and above. 

Those with existing accounts will also have to submit their unique identification number by the end of December. Not disclosing it by December 31 will lead to suspension of the account.

While the income tax department had earlier announced the decision to make Aadhaar mandatory for banking and financial purposes, the new regulations were notified through amendments to rules related to maintenance of records under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

The move came around the time the Supreme Court upheld the validity of an I-T Act provision, making Aadhaar a must for allotment of PAN cards and for filing income tax returns.

The apex court had granted "partial relief" to those who do not have an Aadhaar number or an Aadhaar enrolment ID, ruling that the PAN of such individuals will not be cancelled for the time being.

The notification mandated quoting of Aadhaar along with PAN or Form 60 by individuals, companies and partnership firms for all financial transactions of Rs 50,000 or above with effect from June 1.

After June 1, if a person does not have an Aadhaar number at the time of opening of account, then he has to furnish proof of application of enrolment for Aadhaar and submit the Aadhaar number to the bank within six months of opening of the bank account.

Till now, it was mandatory to provide PAN number or Form 60 to banks while opening accounts or for high value transactions.

For companies opening bank accounts, Aadhaar number of managers or employees holding an attorney to transact on the company's behalf will have to be provided.

In all other cases, identity should be verified while carrying out transaction of an amount equal to or exceeding Rs 50,000, and in any international money transfer operation.

7th Pay Commission: Latest Update On Allowances (Including HRA)

The Empowered Committee of Secretaries has finalised 7th pay commission-related allowances (including HRA or house rent allowance) proposals for consideration of the Union Cabinet, a senior employee union leader told NDTV, citing sources. The Cabinet did not take up the 7th pay commission allowances in today's meeting as it was not part of the agenda, sources told NDTV. The union leader expects the Cabinet to take up the matter soon. The Empowered Committee of Secretaries met on June 1 to screen the report on 7th pay commission allowances (including HRA) to prepare proposals for consideration by the government, the union leader said.

The Ashok Lavasa committee, which examined the 7th pay commission's recommendations on allowances, submitted its report to the finance minister on April 27. The committee was headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa and had Secretaries of Home Affairs, Defence, Health & Family Welfare, Personnel & Training, and Post, and Chairman, Railway Board, as Members, and Joint Secretary (Implementation Cell) as Member Secretary.

The Lavasa committee has suggested some modifications in some allowances that are applicable universally to all employees as well as certain other allowances which apply to specific employee categories, the finance ministry said in a statement. The ministry said that an Empowered Committee of Secretaries (E-CoS) will screen the allowance committee report on 7th pay commission recommendations. The empowered committee will then firm up the proposal for approval of the Cabinet.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that house rent allowance be paid at the rate of 24 per cent, 16 per cent and 8 per cent of the new basic pay, depending on the type of city. The 7th pay commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA be revised to 27 per cent, 18 per cent and 9 per cent when DA or dearness allowance crosses 50 per cent, and further revised to 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent when it crosses 100 per cent. With regard to allowances, employee unions have demanded HRA at the rate of 30 per cent, 20 per cent and 10 per cent.

The 7th pay commission had recommended that of a total of 196 allowances, 52 be abolished altogether and 36 be abolished as separate identities by subsuming them in another allowance.

The Cabinet had earlier approved modification in recommendations of the 7th pay commission relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners and family pensioners based on recommendations of a high-level panel. The decision will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners.

Requested Directorate to review the Transfer Policy of Rule 38 in connection with ASP cadre

No. CHQ/AIAIASP/ASP Rule 38/2017            Dated :    8th June, 2017

To,
Shri A. N. Nanda,                                                                               
Secretary (Posts)
Department of Posts, 
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg, 
New Delhi 110 001. 

Sub: Review of “Transfer Policy” circulated by Directorate vide letter No. 141-141/2013-SPB II dated 31.01.2014 – invitation of suggestion / comments.

Respected Sir,

With reference to Directorate letter number 141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 28th March, 2017, views of All India Association of Inspectors and Assistant Superintendents Posts is submitted herewith for kind consideration.

2.       This association would like to draw your kind attention towards hardship being faced by officials in the cadre of Assistant Superintendent Posts because of placing the cadre of ASPs out of purview of transfer under Rule 38.

2.1     As per Rule 38 of Postal Manual Volume IV, an official needs to put in minimum service of five years in case of direct recruit and three years in case of surplus qualified officials to become eligible for transfer under Rule 38. The provisions have been equally carried forward in policy/various instructions issued by Directorate from time to time viz. No. 141-198/2001-SPB-II, No. 141-177/2009-SPB-II dated 14.12.2010 & No. 141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 31.01.2014.

2.2     Subsequently vide order no. 141-141/2013-SPB-II dated 23.09.2015, the cadre of Assistant Superintendent Posts has been kept out of purview of provisions of transfer under Rule 38 of Postal Manual Volume IV on the grounds that promotion of Inspector Posts to the cadre of Assistant Superintendent Posts is Circle specific, which varies from Circle to Circle and there are instances that an official junior in All India Seniority has been promoted to the cadre of ASPs in one Circle which his senior in All India Seniority is still working in Inspector Posts in another Circle, transfer of such officials who have been promoted to ASPs to the Circle where his senior is still working as Inspector Posts will create anomaly in the Circle concerned.

2.3     It is true that promotion to the cadre of Assistant Superintendent Posts is Circle specific and period for such promotion varies from Circle to Circle. The example set out in Directorate order dated 23.09.2015 is also correct, but on only such grounds keeping the whole cadre out of purview of Rule 38 is a big injustice to cadre, especially when other promotional cadres are left intact and they are eligible for transfer under Rule 38.

2.4     It may be noted that the Recruitment Rules of ASPs and Inspector Posts who have been appointed before 01.02.2013 were eligible for promotion to the cadre of ASPs after three years. But service condition for transfer was five years. Moreover, before completing five years, Circle are not recommending such cases and after five years also it takes considerable time to materialize such transfer, by such time Inspectors in many Circles are promoted to ASPs.

2.5     Provision of keeping cadre of ASPs out of purview of Rule 38 is causing much hardship as after getting ASP promotion, they have no option to get transfer to their Circle, till their promotion to PS Group B Cadre, which takes 20-22 years now a days.

2.7     In view of the above lines, it is requested to bring back the cadre of ASPs under purview of transfers under Rule 38. Further, if Department feels necessary, one condition may be put that Rule 38 transfer of ASPs may be considered if all seniors in  the IP Cadre working in the Circle, where the Rule 38 transfer has been requested, have been promoted to the cadre of ASPs. In such case, there will not be any injustice to the senior Inspector Posts also.

With warm regards,
Yours faithfully,

Request for conducting long pending cadre restructure for the IP/ASP Cadre - reg

No. CHQ/AIAIASP/Cadre Restructure/2016                       Dated :  8th June 2017

To,
Shri A. N. Nanda,
Secretary (Posts),
Department of Posts,

New Delhi 110 001. 

Sub: Request for conducting long pending cadre restructure for the IP/ASP Cadre - reg

Respected Sir,

With profound regards, All India Association of Inspectors and Assistant Superintendents, Posts would like to draw your kind attention to the following few lines on the above subject:-

2.       As you are aware, the IP/ASP Cadre is the middle level executive officers of the Department, who have to play a pivotal role in execution of all the policy decisions of the department. IP/ASPs are now being made as the stem for implementation of the IT modernisation project of India Post, which is expected to bring a paradigm change in the way department functions. The IP/ASPs with a cadre strength of approximately 4200 plus officers are the executives who are supposed to operationalize approximately 4.5 lakh trained man power of Department of Posts including Gramin Dak Sevaks. Maintenance of time tested operating, accounting and Auditing system by conducting timely vigilance checks and inspections, ensuring excellent records management and inventory system by post offices in the new environment, transparency in funds management, capability of liquidity management till last mile, achieving the objective of Financial inclusion in rural / un-banked area under DBT etc. are only to name a few, the list of duties and responsibilities of IP/ASP cadre is endless.

3.       Furthermore, the importance of the Cadre is increasing day by day on infusion of high end technology into the day to day operations of the Department. IP/ASPs are expected to be the repository of knowledge of the traditional work and at the same time shouldering the responsibility taking forward the vision of the Department of Posts to be the market leader in delivery services and technology enabler for urban and rural citizens of the country.

4.       Notwithstanding the above, the incumbents working in the IP/ASP cadre deprived of career prospectus compared to their identical cadres within and outside the Department resulting brain drain of direct recruited Inspectors in the recent past.  Cadre restructures in other cadres in the department are being carried out time to time. Unfortunately, the cadre restructure of IP/ASP cadre has not been held for past four decades and the date of last cadre restructure in the cadre is not known to any of the IP/ASPs, who are in service now.

5.       In view of the above, this Association earnestly requests the Department to kindly intervene in this matter and cause necessary action to convene cadre restructure and issue favourable orders at the earliest.

          With profound regards,
Yours faithfully,

                                                                         Sd/-
