Government employees demand restoration of old pension scheme



govt-employees-old-pension-scheme


Central and state government employees protested here Sunday, demanding restoration of the old pension scheme.

Hundreds of employees staged a dharna outside the Hamirpur office of local MP Anurag Thakur and raised slogans against the new pension scheme.

The employees said if the old scheme was not restored then they would be compelled to launch a nation-wide stir.

Bikram Singh Rana, a national-level leader of the employees association, alleged the new scheme was launched to help big companies and not for the benefit of the employees and that all employees were against it.

The employees demanded all parties declare in their manifestos that the old pension scheme would be reverted back to.

Senior BJP leader Prem Kumar Dhumal, who was in Hamirpur during the dharna, addressed the employees and assured them that he would take up their issue with the central and state governments. He said their case was justified.

Regarding pay-Consolidated guidelines – Dopt

Regarding pay-Consolidated guidelines – Dopt

No.4/3/2017-Estt(Pay-I)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel and Training
North Block, New Delhi,
Dated: 26th October, 2018
List of earlier OMs on the  subject
DoE’s OM No.F.2(78)- E.III(A)63 dated 02.02.1966
DoP&T’s OM No.4/7/92- Estt(Pay-I) dated 04.11.1993
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject:- Stepping up of pay-Consolidated guidelines-reg.
The undersigned is directed to say that the issue of anomaly relating to senior Government employees drawing less pay than their juniors due to application of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) is considered on merits for allowing stepping up pay of the seniors so as to bring it at par with that of the junior in accordance with the guidelines scattered in various OMs noted in the margin. A need has been felt to consolidate guidelines on stepping up of pay at one place keeping in view the provisions of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, [in short CCS(RP)Rules, 2016] as the frequent references on such issues continue to be received in this Department.
2. Consequent upon implementation of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016, the President is pleased to decide the following:
(i)  In order to remove the anomaly of a Government servant promoted or appointed to a higher post on or after 1-1-2016 drawing lower pay in that post than another Government servant junior to him in the lower grade and promoted or appointed subsequently to another identical post, the pay of the senior Government servant in the higher post should be stepped up to a figure equal to the pay as fixed for the junior Government servant in that higher post. The stepping up should be done with effect from the date of promotion or appointment of the junior Government servant and will be subject to the following conditions, namely:
(a) both the junior and the senior Government servants should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted are identical in the same cadre;
(b) the Level in the Pay Matrix of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw pay should be identical;
(c) the anomaly is directly as a result of the application of the provisions of Fundamental Rule 22(1)(a)(1) read with Rule 13 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016. For example, if the junior officer was drawing more pay in the existing pay structure than the senior by virtue of any advance increments granted to him, the provisions of this sub-rule should not be invoked to step up the pay of the senior officer.
(ii)  The order relating to re-fixation of the pay of the senior officer in accordance with clause (i) shall be issued under Fundamental Rule 27 and the senior officer shall be entitled to the next increment on completion of his required qualifying service with effect from the date of re-fixation of pay.
3. The following instances/events wherein juniors draw more pay than seniors, do not constitute anomaly and, therefore, stepping up of pay will not be admissible in such events:
(a) Where a senior proceeds on Extra Ordinary Leave which results in postponement of his Date of Next Increment in the lower post and consequently he starts drawing less pay than his junior in the lower grade itself. He, therefore, cannot claim pay parity on promotion even though he may be promoted earlier to the higher grade than his junior(s);
(b) If a senior forgoes/refuses promotion leading to his junior being promoted/appointed to the higher post earlier and the junior draws higher pay than the senior.
(c) If the senior is on deputation while junior avails of the ad-hoc promotion in the cadre, the increased pay drawn by the junior due to ad-hoc/officiating and/or regular promotion following such ad-hoc promotion in the higher posts vis-a-vis senior, is not an anomaly in strict sense of the term;
(d) If a senior joins the higher post later than the junior, for whatsoever reasons, whereby he starts drawing less pay than the junior. In such cases, senior cannot claim stepping up of pay at par with that of his junior.
(e) If a senior is appointed later than the junior in the lower post itself whereby he is in receipt of lesser pay than the junior, in such cases also the senior cannot claim pay parity in the higher post if he draws less pay than his junior though he may have been promoted earlier to the higher post.
(f) Where an employee is promoted from lower post to a higher post, his pay is fixed with reference to the pay drawn by him in the lower post under FR22(I)(a)(1) read with Rule 13 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016 and due to his longer length of service in the lower grade, his pay may get fixed at a higher stage than that of a senior direct recruit appointed to the same higher grade and whose pay is fixed under different set of rules. For example a Senior Secretariat Assistant (SSA) on promotion to the post of Assistant Section Officer (ASO) gets his pay fixed under FR 22(I)(a)(1) with reference to the pay drawn in the post of SSA, whereas the pay of ASO(DR) is fixed under Rule 8 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016 at the minimum pay or the first Cell in the Level, applicable to ASO to which he is appointed. In such a case, the senior ASO (DR) cannot claim pay parity with that of the promotee junior ASO.
(g) Where a senior is appointed in higher post on ad-hoc basis and is drawing less pay than his junior who is appointed in the same cadre and in same post on ad-hoc basis subsequently, the senior cannot claim pay parity with reference to the pay of that junior since the ad-hoc officiating service in higher post is reversible and also since full benefits of FR22(I)(a)(I) are not available on ad-hoc promotion but only on regular promotion following such ad-hoc promotion without break.
(h) Where a junior gets more pay due to additional increments earned on acquiring higher qualifications.
Note: The above instances/ events are only illustrative and not exhaustive.
4. These orders shall be in supersession of D/o Expenditure’s OM F.2(78)-E.III(A)63 dated 2nd February, 1966 and DOP&T’s OM No.4/7/92-Estt(Pay-I) dated 4th November, 1993.
5. This OM is effective from 01.01.2016.
6. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders have been issued after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
7. Hindi version will follow.

SBI customers alert! You won’t be able to withdraw more than Rs 20,000 from ATMs after October 31

SBI customers alert! You won’t be able to withdraw more than Rs 20,000 from ATMs after October 31

State of Bank of India has decided to reduce the daily cash withdrawal limit for some of its debit cards from Rs 40,000 to Rs 20,000 per day. Here's all you need to know.




India’s largest bank, State of Bank of India (SBI) has decided to reduce the daily cash withdrawal limit for Classic and Maestro debit cards from Rs 40,000 to Rs 20,000 per day. The bank has taken this decision ‘in view of the increased number of complaints around fraudulent transactions at ATMs and to encourage digital and cashless transactions’. In a statement, SBI said that the new withdrawal limit will be applicable from October 31 and those who have higher daily cash withdrawal requirements can apply for other debit card variants that have a higher daily withdrawal limit.

“It has been decided to decrease the cash withdrawal limits of debit cards issued/being issued on Classic and Maestro platforms from Rs 40,000 to Rs 20,000 with effect from Oct-31-2018. The list of BIN numbers of all such cards with existing and revised limits have been enclosed as Annexure-I,” an e-circular by the SBI in possession with Financial Express Online, said.

“Daily cash withdrawal limits for Classic and Maestro debit cards reduced from Rs 40,000 to Rs 20,000 per day with effect from 31st Oct 2018. If you require a higher daily cash withdrawal limit, please apply for a higher card variant,” it added.

 
 
The SBI Gold and Platinum debit cards will continue to have daily ATM withdrawal limit of Rs 50,000 and Rs 1 lakh, respectively.

Earlier this month, in an interview with PTI, SBI Managing Director PK Gupta had said that the move intends to protect customers from fraudulent cash withdrawals from ATMs. “We analysed all the ATM transactions and we found that most of them are less than Rs 20,000 a day. In case of frauds reported to us, we found that in all such cases withdrawals of Rs 40,000 (the maximum) have happened. So this is basically to protect the customers and secondly, we want that more such (digital) transactions should happen,” Gupta had said.

Explaining why the decision was taken ahead of the festive season, Gupta had said that the customers can always visit a branch to draw more cash or use digital means. “Let us see if customers can do more transactions through digital means also, there are so many digital payment mechanisms available,” Gupta had said.

Digital Life Certificate – Process Of Submitting Through Digital Mode [Video]

Digital Life Certificate – Process Of Submitting Through Digital Mode [Video]

Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare (DoPPW) has released an informative video on the process of submitting life certificate through digital mode. The video is very well made and gives clean instructions regarding submission of digital life certificate.


Note:
To submit a Digital Life Certificate you would need a biometric device, either a fingerprint scanner or an iris scanner.
The JeevanPramaan website has given a list of devices supported by the JeevanPramaan application. The list is valid as on 01.09.2018.
The biometric device can be purchased on online stores. For your convenience, we have listed outthe devices with key features and also a link to the products available online.

About Digital Life Certificate (DLC)

Pension is an essential source of income after retirement for senior citizens. It supports them financially during emergency and helps them look after their needs at this stage of life. One of the main requisites for the pensioners post their retirement, was to provide life certificates to the authorised pension disbursing agencies like the bank, following which their pension got credited to their account.
For obtaining a life certificate, a pensioner earlier needed to present himself/herself before the Pension Disbursing Agency or had the life certificate issued by authority where they served and had it delivered to the disbursing agency. This very requirement of personally being present in front of disbursing agency or getting a life certificate often became a major hurdle in the process of seamless transfer of pension amount to the pensioner. It was noted that it causes a lot of hardship and unnecessary inconvenience particularly for the aged and infirm pensioners who cannot always be in a position to present them in front of the particular authority to secure their life certificate. In addition to this a lot of government employees post their retirement choose to move to different location either to be with their family or other reasons, hence causing a huge logistical issue when it comes to accessing their rightful pension amount.
Digital Life Certificate for Pensioners scheme of the Government of India known as Jeevan Pramaan seeks to ease this very problem by digitizing the whole process of securing the life certificate. It aims to streamline the process of getting this certificate and making it hassle free and much easier for the pensioners. With this initiative the pensioners requirement to physically present himself or herself in front of disbursing agency or the certification authority will become a thing of the past benefiting the pensioners in a huge way and cutting down on unnecessary logistical hurdles.
Jeevan Pramaan is a biometric enabled digital service for pensioners. Pensioners of Central Government, State Government or any other Government organization can take benefit of this facility.
The Life Certificates can also be electronically delivered to the Pension Disbursing Agency, without any manual intervention.
