Dated October 18, 2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Travel entitlements of Government employees for the purpose of LTC post Seventh Central Pay Commission - clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department's O.M.of even no. dated 19.09.2017 on the subject noted above, which inter-alia provides that the travel entitlements of Government servants for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide Ministry of Finance's O.M. No. 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017, except the air travel entitlement for Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, which is allowed in respect of TA only and not for LTC.

2. It is observed that many Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix had inadvertently travelled by air on LTC during the intervening period from 13.07.2017 to 19.09.2017 (i.e. post issue of MoF's O.M. dated 13.07.2017 and before the issue of DoPT's O.M. dated 19.09.2017) under the impression that they were entitled for air travel as per the revised TA rules. This Department is in receipt of references from the Government employees and various Ministries/Departments seeking relaxation in respect of such Government employees in view of the hardships faced by them in settlement of their LTC claims.

3. The matter has been examined in this Department in consultation with Department of Expenditure. In relaxation to this Department's O.M. of even no. dated 19.09.2017, it has been decided to allow the claims of the Government employees in Level 6 to Level 8 of the Pay Matrix, who had travelled by air as per the revised TA rules while availing LTC during 13.07.2017 to 19.09.2017. This shall be subject to the fulfillment of other conditions of air travel on LTC such as booking of air tickets through the authorised modes, fare limit of LTC80, etc.

Request for issue of orders to grant financial benefits on 01/01/2006 to senior IPs, ASPs and Group B officers

Request for issue of orders to grant financial benefits on 01/01/2006 to senior IPs, ASPs and Group B officers


To
Sh. A.N.Nanda,
The Secretary (Post)
Department of Post
DakBhawan, SansadMarg
New Delhi-100001

No. CHQ/POA/1-26/2017-18 Dated 15.10.18

Sub: Request for issue of orders to grant financial benefits on 01/01/2006 to senior IPs, ASPs and Group B officers consequent upon placing IPs & ASPs in the same scale.

Postal officer Association intend to refer to Postal Directorate letter number 2-12/2013-PCC dated 24-10-2017 and to inform you that consequent upon placing IPs and ASPs in the same GP w.e.f 1-1-2006, the Grade Pay of both the cadre has became identical at the level of 4600/-. This position has placed the ASPs (Gazetted) in a detrimental and disadvantageous level. As such the promotion already awarded at the level of ASPs prior to 1-1-2006 or working as ASPs on that day has now no meaning and thus stood nullified. Due to this disadvantageous position DoPT in a point of doubt no.1 of Annexure of ACP order no.45034/1/97-Estt(D) dtd 09.08.99 had clarified that when the lower pay and the higher pay are equal the ACP (financial up-gradation) given to ASP has to be ignored and fresh ACP should be given.

Furthermore, since ASPs and IPs have been placed in the same GP of 4600/- corresponding to the old pay scale of 7450-225-10500 so provision for grant of MACP or ACP will have to be redefined in view of the clarification issued on ACP scheme vide DoPT OM No. 35034/1/97-Estt (D) (Vol. IV) dated 12.02.2000 and 18.7.2001. As also provided in postal directorate letter no.4-7/(MACPS)/2009/PCC dated 18-9-2009 promotion earned /up-gradation granted under the ACP schemes in the past to those grades which now carry the same GP due to the merger of the scales/ up-gradation of posts recommended by the sixth pay commission shall be ignored for the purpose of up-gradation under Modified ACPs.

Apparently the pay fixture benefit to those ASPs who were promoted prior to 1-1-2006 from IPs or who got financial up-gradations prior to 1-1-2006 needs revision as on 01-01-2006 in the same manner as done in case of MTS when they were granted GP of 1900, 2000 & 2400 for 1, 2 & 3rd financial upgradations.

Association, therefore urge Secretary Posts to issue orders with regard to extending benefits of Grade pay of 4800 and 5400 as on 01-01-2006 to all senior IPs/ASPs, who were promoted to ASP/PS group B cadre or had been granted 2nd financial up-gradation prior to 01/01/2006.

With profound regards

Yours Sincerely

R N Yadav
General Secretary

Not a single mobile phone faces disconnect threat, says DoT 
The Department of Telecommunications (DOT) and Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in a joint statement today clarified that a few news reports in the media which state that 50 Crore mobile numbers, almost half of the total mobiles in circulation, are at the risk of disconnection, are completely untrue and imaginary. The news report tries to create unnecessary panic among mobile users by claiming that “they stare a prospect of disconnection if SIM cards procured on the basis of Aadhaar verification are not backed up by a fresh identification”. 
The joint statement clarifies that the Hon’ble Supreme Court in its judgement in Aadhaar case has nowhere directed that the mobile number which has been issued through Aadhaar eKYC has to be disconnected. Therefore, there is absolutely no reason for panic or fear at all. People should not believe in such rumours. The Court has also not asked to delete all the eKYC data of telecom customers after 6 months. What the apex Court has asked that UIDAI should not keep authentication log for more than 6 months. The restriction is on UIDAI and not on the telecom companies. Therefore, there is no need for telecom companies to delete authentication logs.
So in the light of the verdict if anybody wishes to get her/his Aadhaar eKYC replaced by the fresh KYC, s/he may request the service provider for delinking of her/his Aadhaar by submitting fresh OVDs as per earlier DOT Circulars on mobile KYC. But in any case his mobile number will not be disconnected.
The Joint Statement said that what Supreme Court has done is that it has prohibited issue of new SIM cards through Aadhaar eKYC authentication process due to lack of a law. There is no direction to deactivate the old mobile phones.
The statement said that in fact the Department of Telecom and UIDAI are in a process to bring out a completely hassle-free and digital process for issuing new SIM cards through a mobile App which will be fully compliant of the Supreme Court judgement in Aadhaar Case. In the proposed process, live photograph of the person with latitude, longitude, and time stamp will be captured. The photo of her ID such as Aadhaar card, voter ID, etc., will be captured. The SIM card agent will be authenticated through OTP and SIM card will be issued. This process will be completely hassle-free and digital.
 The statement reiterates that there is no need to panic or get confused by the reports that have appeared in the media.
