 CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES’ GROUP INSURANCE SCHEME, 1980.
5.1 The Scheme, Central Government Employees’ Group Insurance Scheme (CGEGIS)
came into force from 1st January,1982. This scheme provides for the Central Govt. employees the two fold benefit viz. (1) insurance cover to help their families and (2) lump sum payment to augment their resources on retirement.

5.2 The scheme has two funds namely (1) Insurance Fund and (2) Savings Fund. A portion of the subscription is credited to Insurance Fund and the other portion to the Savings Fund in the ratio of 3:7. The Savings Fund will earn interest at the prescribed rate to be compounded quarterly.
5.3 All these employees’ who had entered Central Government Service after 1st November,1980 will be compulsorily covered under the scheme from the date it came into force i.e. from 1st January,1982. The employees will be enrolled as members of the scheme only from 1st January every year. If an employee enters service on or after 2nd January in any year, he will be enrolled as a member only from 1st January of the next year. However, he will be entitled to insurance cover from the actual date of entry of service till the end of that calendar year by paying monthly subscription of Rs. 5/- p.m. as premium for every Rs. 15,000/ – of the insurance cover.
Similarly, on regular promotion of a member of a lower Group to a higher Group after 1st January in a year, his subscription will be raised from the 1st January of the next year.
Note :- If an employee once admitted to a higher Group is subsequently reverted to the lower Group for one reason or the other, he will continue to subscribe at the same rate as that of higher Group.
5.4 Contract employees, persons on deputation from State Government Public Sector Undertakings, or other autonomous organisations locally recruited staff in the Missions abroad, casual labourer, part-time and ad-hoc employees will not be covered by the scheme. It will also not apply to persons recruited in the Central Government after attaining the age of 50 years.
5.5 Re-employed Defence personnel availing of the extended insurance cover under the Group Insurance Scheme applicable to the members of Armed Forces shall not be eligible to become members of this Scheme until expiry of the extended insurance cover.
5.6 Subscription at the appropriate rate should be recovered by the DDO from each member every month irrespective of whether the member is on duty, leave or under suspension. In the case of absence on Extra Ordinary leave, subscription due should be recovered in arrears in not more than 3 instalments after the member rejoins duty, along with appropriate interest thereon. In the event of death of a member during Extra-ordinary leave, the DDO should recover arrears in subscription along with interest, from the payment to the nominee admissible under the scheme.
Note:- Subscription is payable till the end of service including the month in which an employee retires, dies or is removed from service. If an employee dies during a month before recovery of subscription for that month, his dues will be paid after deducting the subscription.
5.7 In the case of members proceeding on foreign service, the recovery of subscription would be watched by the PAO concerned in the same manner as recovery of leave salary and pension contributions is watched.
5.8 The Head of Office should obtain Nomination(s) in Form 7 or Form 8, as the case may be, from all members without delay, and after counter signature, have them pasted in their service books.
5.9 The Head of Office should ensure that Group-wise register of members is maintained in Form 9 and kept up-to-date. This register shall be sent to the DDO concerned once a year to verify whether appropriate subscription are being recovered from all employees who have joined the Insurance Fund or both the Insurance Fund and the Savings Fund under the Scheme and to record a certificate to this effect.

'All-India Protest Day' by Central Govt employees: Govt warns of pay cut, strict action

'All-India Protest Day' by Central Govt employees: Govt warns of pay cut, strict action 


The employees of the central government have been warned of deduction in wages by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), if they observe a protest on Wednesday. The central government employees had announced to observe an “all-India protest day” to press for a revision in the minimum pay beyond the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations. The employees also seek scrapping of a new pension scheme.
The DoPT, in an order issued on Tuesday, had directed all employees of the central government to refrain from holding protests or strike of any form, which may include mass casual leave or going slow.
The department further warned the employees that doing so would be a violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964.
As per the Rule 17(I) of the Fundamental Rules, an employee is not entitled to pay and allowances on absence from their duty without prior authority.
All officers have been directed by the DoPT to not approve any kind of leaves to their subordinate, during during the period of the proposed protest.
Clarifying that the rights of an association cannot vary from that of individual members of the association, the DoPT asked all divisional heads to forward a report including details of employees absent from duty on the day of the protest.
National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) is an umbrella body of Central government employees’ associations and has called an ‘all-India protest day’, demanding the upward revision of the minimum wage and allowing Option 1 as one of the pension fitment formula.
The central government employees are hopeful of a hike in minimum pay as per 7th Pay Commission recommendations, especially after the announcement of implementation of 7th Pay Commission by two BJP-ruled states, among others.

Central Government Employees Should Not Go On Protest Or Strike – DOPT

Central Government Employees Should Not Go On Protest Or Strike – DOPT

DOPT issues instructions against going on protest or strike by Employees in connection with All India Central Government Employees Protest on 19th September 2018 declared by Employees Joint Forum (NJCA)

No.45018/1/2017-Vig.
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 18th September, 2018

Subject: All India Protest Day for 19th September, 2018 – Instructions under CCS (Conduct Rules), 1964 – Regarding.
It has been brought to the notice of the Government that National Joint Council of Action (NJCA), New Delhi has decided to observe “All India Protest Day” on 19th September, 2018 in support of the following issues:
i. Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula,
ii. Scrapping of the New Contributory Pension Scheme; and
iii. Allow Option No. 1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula.
2. The instructions issued by the Department of Personnel and Training prohibit the Government servants from participating in any form of strike including mass casual leave, go slow or any action that abet any form of strike in violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. Besides, in accordance with the proviso to Rule 17(I) of the Fundamental Rules, pay and allowances is not admissible to an employee for his absence from duty without any authority. As to the concomitant rights of an Association after it is formed, they cannot be different from the rights which can be claimed by the individual members of which the Association is composed. It follows that the right to form an Association does not include any guaranteed right to strike. There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike. The Supreme Court has also ruled in several judgements that going on a strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by the Government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law. Any employee going on strike in any form would face the consequences which, besides deduction of wages, may also include appropriate disciplinary action. Attention of all employees of this Department is also drawn to this Department’s O.M. No.33012/1/(s)/ 2008-Estt.(B) dated 12.9.2008, on the subject for strict compliance (enclosed as Annexure-A).
3. All officers are requested that the above instructions may be brought to the notice of the employees working under their control. All officers are also requested not to sanction Casual Leave or any other kind of leave to the officers and employees, if applied for, during the period of proposed protest, and ensure that the willing employees are allowed hindrance free entry into the office premises.
4. In case employees go on protest, all Divisional Heads are requested to forward report indicating the number and details of employees, who are absent from duty on the day of protest, i.e., 09.2018.
(Juglal Singh)
Deputy Secretary (JCA)
