Will the Minister of FINANCE be pleased to state:-   
(a) whether the reports of successive Pay Commissions have been increasing the burden on Government finances/ exchequer in partially accepting their recommendations for increase in wages and if so, the details thereof;
b) whether the last Pay Commission has suggested productivity linked pay hike to the deserving employees to eliminate below average or mediocre performance and if so, the details thereof;
(c) whether such periodic hikes in wages resulting from Pay Commission recommendations trigger similar demands from the State Government/public utility employees, imposing burden on already strained State finances and if so, the details thereof; and
(d) whether the Government is considering an alternative for increasing the salaries and allowances of Central Government employees and pensioners in future instead of forming Pay Commission and if so, the details thereof?
ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE
(SHRI P. RADHAKRISHNAN)
A Statement is laid on the Table of the House
Statement Annexed with the Lok Sabha Starred Question No. 568 dated 06.04.2018 raised by Shri Jose K. Mani regarding Pay Commission Reports
(a) The financial impact of the recommendations of the Central Pay Commission, as accepted by the Government, is normally more pronounced in the initial year and gradually it tapers off as the growth in the economy picks up and fiscal space is widened. While implementing the recommendations of the last Central Pay Commission, i.e., the Seventh Central Pay Commission, the Government staggered its implementation in two financial years. While the recommendations on pay and pension were implemented with effect from 01.01.2016, the recommendations in respect of allowances have been implemented with effect from 01.07.2017 after an examination by a Committee. This has moderated the financial impact of the recommendations. Moreover, unlike the previous 6th Pay Commission, which entailed substantial impact on account of arrears, the impact in the year 2016-17 on account of element of arrears of revised pay and pension on the present occasion of the 7th Central Pay Commission pertained to only 2 months of the previous financial year of 2015-16.
(b) The Seventh Central Pay Commission in Para 5.1.46 of its Report proposed withholding of annual increment in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for Modified Assured Career Progression (MACP) or regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.
(c) The service conditions of employees of State Governments fall within the exclusive domain of the respective State Governments who are federally independent of the Central Government. Therefore, the concerned State Governments have to independently take a view in the matter.
(d) No such proposal is under consideration of the Government.

Subject : Preventive Checks/actions to avert/unearth and investigate fraud in CBS post offices.

Respected Sir,
           
            While drawing your immediate attention  towards Postal Directorate, Financial Services Division  letter  no.  F. No. 25-31/2017-FS-CBS dated 28.03.2018  wherein the burden of checking and verification of Sanchay Post Mock Migration  data with Live migrated data, cross-checking of 6 months or older Sanchay Post data with Live migrated data and verification thereof has been placed over the Sub Divisional Head,  this Association  strongly protests inclusion of the Sub Divisional head in this verification process.

            This Association strongly advocates that this verification process should done by SBCO, SBSO and technical officials like System Administrators. Only the SBCO has authority to verify  and authenticate    data and Sub divisional Head has no authority to verify or authenticate data and arrive at the correct balance/data. Involving Sub Divisional Head   has no meaning in this context as Sub Divisional  Heads do not have adequate operational skill of the software like Sanchay Post. The Sub divisional heads are neither fully skilled nor have enough time to check data in respect of all Finacle migrated offices under their Sub Division. SDC Chennai/DOP and Infosys should develop such software which can easily filter such desired data.

            Therefore, it is requested to kindly relook  into this matter and cause to withdraw instructions which direct Sub Divisional Heads to check and verify Sanchay Post data w.r.t. migrated  live data issued vide Postal Directorate , Financial Services Division  letter  no.  F. No. 25-31/2017-FS-CBS dated 28.03.2018.

For this, this Association shall ever be grateful.
                                                                                                            Your Sincerely

Regarding non-granting MACP to IPs/ASPs Cadre officials since 01.01.2016 by various circles



To
                The Secretary (Post)
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg
New Delhi-110001.

Subject: Regarding non-granting  MACP to IPs/ASPs Cadre officials since 01.01.2016 by various circles
Sir,
                Various circles are not conducting DSC for MACP to IPs/ASPs Cadre since 01.01.2016 quoting the Directorate letter No.7-8/2016-PCC dated 30.05.2017 under which the by DoPT has directed to maintain “status quo” in the case of fixation of the pay of IPs/ASPs, who had already been granted financial up-gradation under MACPS, in the event of up-gradation of Grade Pay of these cadres by the Seventh Central Pay Commission w.e.f. 01.01.2016:-

                In this regard, I would like to point out following lines for your consideration issue of suitable direction to the circles: -

  1. Now, IPs have already been granted GP Rs.4600/- since 01.01.2006. There should not be any issue in fixation of Grade Pay of IPs cadre and granting MACP.
  2. Regarding the Pay fixation of ASPs, again clarification should be asked from the DoPT for early settlement of the issue.
  3. This is the case of fixation of pay of ASPs who had already been granted financial up-gradation under MACP. Only on the DOPT’s plea of the MACP of IPs/ASPs should not be kept held up.

In view of the above, it is requested to instruct all circles for grant of  the benefit of financial up-gradation under MACP to IPs/ASPs Cadre immediately.

                                                                                                                                                         Yours Sincerely


                                                                                                                                                (Rajiv Kumar)
                                                                                                                                                General Secretary.
