Navy chief raises pay panel report "anomaly" with Antony

Even as the government notified the Sixth Central Pay Commission report benefiting 50-lakh government servants, Navy chief Admiral Sureesh Mehta has voiced the "demoralisation" among the middle-rung officers to Defence Minister A K Antony over "an anomaly" in their new pay scales.

Mehta met Antony on Friday evening to brief him on his recent visit to Japan and Korea where he took up the issue of "Lt Colonels and their equivalents in Navy and IAF being placed in Pay Band-3, lowering the extant of parities, while their civilian and paramilitary counterparts were raised to Pay Band-4," top Navy sources told media on Saturday.

"The Navy chief discussed the matter with the Defence Minister in his late evening meeting on Friday and the Ministry is now seized of the matter," sources said.

The Ministry is likely "to take up the matter" at the highest level in the government "to address the grievances" of the armed forces, even though the CPC had already been notified late on Friday night, sources added.

The "anomaly" was first articulated by Air chief Marshal Fali Homi Major in a letter to the Defence Minister on August 25, while acting as Chairman of Chief of Staff Committee as incumbent Mehta was in Japan and South Korea.

Major had said it was "unfortunate" that the Finance Ministry had introduced yet another anomaly, "lowering the extant parities of officer of the Armed Forces of the rank of Lt Colonels (and equivalent) by retaining them in the Pay Band-3, while raising similarly placed civilian and paramilitary officer to Pay Band-4."

OFFICIAL GAZETTE NOTIFICATION

The Gazette Notification on sixth pay commission can be downloaded from the following link
http://pib.nic.in/archieve/others/2008/aug/6th_payNotification.pdf

Most surprisingly it matched almost hundred percent with the unofficial gazette published in the blog earlier.

Govt notifies sixth Pay Panel report

Over 50 lakh government employees, including the armed forces personnel, will be receiving an enhanced pay packet beginning September 1, with the government today notifying the revised recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission (CPC).

The much-awaited CPC proposals had received a seal of approval from the union cabinet a fortnight ago after it amended certain recommendations of the Justice Sri Krishna-led Pay Commission that submitted its report to the government on March 24 this year.

The CPC recommendations and the subsequent government decision with regard to revised scales of pay and dearness allowance for civilian employees of the central government would be made retrospectively effective from January 1, 2006, the notification said.

However, the revised allowances, other than dearness allowance, would be effective only from September 1 this year. On payment of arrears, the government has modified to the extent that the arrears would be paid in cash in two installments - first installment of 40 per cent this financial year (2008-09) and the remaining 60 per cent in the next financial year (2009-10).
The government has approved the setting up of a committee to examine individual, post-specific and cadre-specific anomalies. The committee should try to complete the work in one year, the notification said.

Providing for post-notification changes in the CPC report, the government said "the department specific recommendations" will be processed by concerned departments and ministries and approval of the government obtained in consultations with the Finance Ministry or Department of Personnel and Training.
This decision, the notificaion said, was taken keeping in view the allowances granted to defence forces personnel in such or similar areas and other allwances granted to central paramilitary forces.

However, the government did away with the provision of Suraksha Sahayaks to central paramilitary forces officers with effect from a date to be fixed later.

"Meanwhile, absolutely necessary posts may be created on the basis of functional justification. The decision will also apply to similarly placed categories in other departments," the notification said.

The government has improved Pay Bands 1, 2 and 4, as recommended by the CPC, and modified it. While Pay Band-1 of Rs 4,800-20,200 has been modified to Rs 5,200-20,200 and Pay Band-2 from Rs 8,700-34,800 to Rs 9,300-34,800, the government improved Pay Band-4 from Rs 39,200-67,000 to Rs 37,400-67,000.

A new pay scale of Rs 75,500 (annual increment of 3 per cent)-80,000 designated as 'HAG+' will be carved out of Pay Band-4.

With regard to fixation of pay in revised pay bands, the basic pay drawn as on January 1, 2006 on the existing 5th CPC, pay scale will be multiplied by a factor of 1.86 and then rounded off to next multiple of 10.

"This will be the pay in the revised pay band. Grade Pay, as approved by the government corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale will be then added to the Pay in the revised Pay Band. The total of pay in the pay band and grade pay will be the revised pay as on January 1, 2006," the notification said.

"Campus" restriction for grant of transport allowance will be removed. Consequently, employees living in campuses will also be eligible for transport allowance. Further, transport allowance for the employees at the lowest levels will be increased to Rs 600 (from Rs 400) in A-1/A class cities and Rs 400 (from Rs 300) in other towns.

(A) in the case of all employees:-

(i) the pay in the pay band/pay scale will be determined by multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86 and rounding off the resultant figure to the next multiple of 10.

(ii) if the minimum of the revised pay band/ pay scale is more than the amount arrived at as per (i) above, the pay shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised pay band/pay scale;

Provided further that:-

Where, in the fixation of pay, the pay of Government servants drawing pay at two or more consecutive stages in an existing scale gets bunched, that is to say, gets fixed in the revised pay structure at the same stage in the pay band, then, for every two stages so bunched, benefit of one increment shall be given so as to avoid bunching of more than two stages in the revised running pay bands. For this purpose, the increment will be calculated on the pay in the pay band. Grade pay would not be taken into account for the purpose of granting increments to alleviate bunching.

In the case of pay scales in higher administrative grade (HAG) in the pay band PB-4, benefit of increments due to bunching shall be given taking into account all the stages in different pay scales in this grade. In the case of HAG+ scale, benefit of one increment for every two stages in the pre-revised scale will be granted in the revised pay scale.

If by stepping up of the pay as above, the pay of a Government servant gets fixed at a stage in the revised pay band/ pay scale (where applicable) which is higher than the stage in the revised pay band at which the pay of a Government servant who was drawing pay at the next higher stage or stages in the same existing scale is fixed, the pay of the latter shall also be stepped up only to the extent by which it falls short of that of the former.

(iii) The pay in the pay band will be determined in the above manner. In addition to the pay in the pay band, grade pay corresponding to the existing scale will be payable.

Note - Illustration 1 on the above is provided in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

(B) In the case of employees who are in receipt of special pay/allowance in addition to pay in the existing scale which has been recommended for replacement by a pay band and grade pay without any special pay/allowance, pay shall be fixed in the revised pay structure in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above.

(C) In the case of employees who are in receipt of special pay component with any other nomenclature in addition to pay in the existing scales, such as personal pay for promoting small family norms, special pay to Parliament Assistants, Central (Deputation on Tenure) Allowance, etc., and in whose case the same has been replaced in the revised pay structure with corresponding allowance/pay at the same rate or at a different rate, the pay in the revised pay structure shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above. In such cases, the allowance at the new rate as recommended shall be drawn in addition to pay in the revised pay structure from the date specified in the individual notifications related to these allowances.

(D) In the case of medical officers who are in receipt of non-practising allowance, the pay in the revised pay structure shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above except that, in such cases, the pre-revised dearness allowance appropriate to the non-practising allowance admissible at index average 536 (1982 = 100) shall be added while fixing the pay in the revised pay band, and in such cases, non-practising allowance at the new rates shall be drawn with effect from 1.1.2006 or the date of option for revised pay structure, in addition to the pay so fixed in the revised pay structure. Illustration 2 in this regard is at in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Note 1 - (a) In the case of Group D employees, the pay in the revised pay structure will be fixed initially in the -1S pay band as per Clause (A) above with the appropriate grade pay and arrears paid accordingly. Thereafter, pay of such of those Group D employees who already possess the revised minimum qualifications recommended by the Commission prescribed for entry into PB-1 would be fixed with effect from 1.1.2006 in PB-1 with grade pay of Rs.1800.

(b) Such of those existing Group D employees who do not possess the revised minimum qualifications for entry into PB-1 would be retrained by the concerned Department preferably within a period of six months so that payment of arrears on account of upgradation are not delayed. After re-training, these Group D staff will also be placed in the Pay Band PB-1 with the grade pay of Rs.1800 with effect from 1.1.2006 and arrears drawn accordingly. Once placed in the PB-1 Pay Band, this category of Group D staff will regain their seniority vis-à-vis the other category of Group D staff that already possessed the minimum qualifications and were, therefore, placed in the PB-1 Pay Band as on 1.1.2006. Inter-se seniority of all the employees in erstwhile Group D will be fully maintained with Group D employee in a higher pre-revised pay scale being placed higher vis-à-vis an employee in a lower pay scale. Within the same pre-revised pay scale, seniority which existed prior to revision would continue.

(c) Arrears shall be payable with effect from 1.1.2006 in both the cases i.e. to those Group D employees who possess the qualifications and are placed in PB-1 straight away and those Group D employees who do not possess the qualifications and are placed after re-training. Illustration 3 in regard to fixation of pay for Group D staff is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Note 2 - Where a post has been upgraded as a result of the recommendations of the Sixth CPC as indicated in Part B or Part C of the First Schedule to these Rules, the fixation of pay in the applicable pay band will be done in the manner prescribed in accordance with Clause (A) (i) and (ii) of Rule 7 by multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86 and rounding the resultant figure to the next multiple of ten. The grade pay corresponding to the upgraded scale as indicated in Column 6 of Part B or C will be payable in addition. Illustration 4 in this regard is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Note 3 - A Government servant who is on leave on the 1st day of January, 2006 and is entitled to leave salary shall become entitled to pay in the revised pay structure from 1.1.2006 or the date of option for the revised pay structure. Similarly, where a government servant is on study leave on the first day of January, 2006 he will be entitled to the benefits under these Rules from 1.1.2006 or the date of option.

Note 4 - A Government servant under suspension, shall continue to draw subsistence allowance based on existing scale of pay and his pay in the revised pay structure will be subject to the final order on the pending disciplinary proceedings.

Note 5 - Where a Government servant is holding a permanent post and is officiating in a higher post on a regular basis and the scales applicable to these two posts are merged into one scale, the pay shall be fixed under this sub-rule with reference to the officiating post only, and the pay so fixed shall be treated as substantive pay.

The provisions of this Note shall apply mutatis mutandis, to Government servants holding in an officiating capacity, posts on different existing scales which have been replaced by the revised pay structure.

Note 6 - Where the `existing emoluments' exceed the revised emoluments in the case of any Government servant, the difference shall be allowed as personal pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay.

Note 7 - Where in the fixation of pay under sub-rule (1), the pay of a Government servant, who, in the existing scale was drawing immediately before the 1st day of January, 2006 more pay than another Government servant junior to him in the same cadre, gets fixed in the revised pay band at a stage lower than that of such junior, his pay shall be stepped upto the same stage in the revised pay band as that of the junior.

Note 8 - Where a Government servant is in receipt of personal pay on the 1st day of January, 2006, which together with his existing emoluments exceeds the revised emoluments, then, the difference representing such excess shall be allowed to such Government servant as personal pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay.

Note 9 - In the case of employees who are in receipt of personal pay for passing Hindi Pragya, Hindi Typewriting, Hindi Shorthand and such other examinations under the "Hindi Teaching Scheme", or on successfully undergoing training in cash and accounts matters prior to the 1st day of January, 2006, while the personal pay shall not be taken into account for purposes of fixation of initial pay in the revised pay structure, they would continue to draw personal pay after fixation of their pay in the revised pay structure on and from the 1st day of January, 2006 or subsequently for the period for which they would have drawn it but for the fixation of their pay in the revised pay structure. The quantum of such personal pay would be paid at the appropriate rate of increment in the revised pay structure from the date of fixation of pay for the period for which the employee would have continued to draw it.

Explanation - For the purpose of this Note, "appropriate rate of increment in the revised pay structure" means 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay at the stage at which the pay of the employee is fixed in the revised pay structure.

Note 10 - In cases where a senior Government servant promoted to a higher post before the 1st day of January, 2006 draws less pay in the revised pay structure than his junior who is promoted to the higher post on or after the 1st day of January, 2006, the pay in the pay band of the senior Government servant should be stepped up to an amount equal to the pay in the pay band as fixed for his junior in that higher post. The stepping up should be done with effect from the date of promotion of the junior Government servant subject to the fulfillment of 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 should be identical in the same cadre.

(b) the pre-revised scale of pay and the revised grade pay of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw pay should be identical.

(c) the senior Government servants at the time of promotion should have been drawing equal or more pay than the junior.

(d) the anomaly should be directly as a result of the application of the provisions of Fundamental Rule 22 or any other rule or order regulating pay fixation on such promotion in the revised pay structure. If even in the lower post, the junior officer was drawing more pay in the pre-revised scale than the senior by virtue of any advance increments granted to him, provision of this Note need not be invoked to step up the pay of the senior officer.

(2) Subject to the provisions of rule 5, if the pay as fixed in the officiating post under sub-rule (1) is lower than the pay fixed in the substantive post, the former shall be fixed at the stage next above the substantive pay.

8. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure of employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1.1.2006 – Section II of Part A of the First Schedule of these Rules indicates the entry level pay in the pay band at which the pay of direct recruits to a particular post carrying a specific grade pay will be fixed on or after 1.1.2006.

This will also be applied in the case of those recruited between 1.1.2006 and the date of issue of this Notification. In such cases, where the emoluments in the pre-revised pay scale(s) [i.e., basic pay in the pre-revised pay scale(s) plus Dearness Pay plus Dearness Allowance applicable on the date of joining] exceeds the sum of the pay fixed in the revised pay structure and the applicable dearness allowance thereon, the difference shall be allowed as personal pay to be absorbed in future increments in pay.

9. Rate of increment in the revised pay structure –The rate of increment in the revised pay structure will be 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and grade pay applicable, which will be rounded off to the next multiple of 10. The amount of increment will be added to the existing pay in the pay band. Illustration 5 in this regard is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules. In the case of PB-3, variable rates of increment at 3% and 4% have been provided. The higher rate of increment will be granted to not more than 20% of the strength of officers in PB-3.

10. Date of next increment in the revised pay structure - There will be a uniform date of annual increment, viz. 1st July of every year. Employees completing 6 months and above in the revised pay structure as on 1st of July will be eligible to be granted the increment. The first increment after fixation of pay on 1.1.2006 in the revised pay structure will be granted on 1.7.2006 for those employees for whom the date of next increment was between 1st July, 2006 to 31st December, 2006.

Provided that in the case of persons who had been drawing maximum of the existing scale for more than a year as on the 1st day of January, 2006, the next increment in the revised pay structure shall be allowed on the 1st day of January, 2006. Thereafter, the provision of Rule 10 would apply.

Provided that in cases where an employee reaches the maximum of his pay band, shall be placed in the next higher pay band after one year of reaching such a maximum. At the time of placement in the higher pay band, benefit of one increment will be provided. Thereafter, he will continue to move in the higher pay band till his pay in the pay band reaches the maximum of PB-4, after which no further increments will be granted.

Note 1 - In cases where two existing scales, one being a promotional scale for the other, are merged, and the junior Government servant, now drawing his pay at equal or lower stage in the lower scale of pay, happens to draw more pay in the pay band in the revised pay structure than the pay of the senior Government servant in the existing higher scale, the pay in the pay band of the senior government servant shall be stepped up to that of his junior from the same date and he shall draw next increment in accordance with Rule 10.

11. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure subsequent to the 1st day of January, 2006. - Where a Government servant continues to draw his pay in the existing scale and is brought over to the revised pay structure from a date later than the 1st day of January, 2006, his pay from the later date in the revised pay structure shall be fixed in the following manner:-

(i) Pay in the pay band will be fixed by adding the basic pay applicable on the later date, the dearness pay applicable on that date and the pre-revised dearness allowance based on rates applicable as on 1.1.2006. This figure will be rounded off to the next multiple of 10 and will then become the pay in the applicable pay band. In addition to this, the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale will be payable. Where the Government servant is in receipt of special pay or non-practising allowance, the methodology followed will be as prescribed in Rule 7 (i), (B),
(C) or (D) as applicable, except that the basic pay and dearness pay to be taken into account will be the basic pay and dearness pay applicable as on that date but dearness allowance will be calculated as per rates applicable on 1.1.2006.

12. Fixation of pay on reappointment after the 1st day of January, 2006 to a post held prior to that date - A Government servant who had officiated in a post prior to the 1st day of January, 2006 but was not holding that post on that date and who on subsequent appointment to that post draws pay in the revised pay structure shall be allowed the benefit of the proviso to Fundamental Rule 22, to the extent it would have been admissible had he been holding that post on the 1st day of January, 2006, and had elected the revised pay structure on and from that date.

13. Fixation of pay on promotion on or after 1.1.2006 – In the case of promotion from one grade pay to another in the revised pay structure, the fixation will be done as follows:-

(i) One increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the existing grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of 10. This will be added to the existing pay in the pay band. The grade pay corresponding to the promotion post will thereafter be granted in addition to this pay in the pay band. In cases where promotion involves change in the pay band also, the same methodology will be followed. However, if the pay in the pay band after adding the increment is less than the minimum of the higher pay band to which promotion is taking place, pay in the pay band will be stepped to such minimum.

(ii) In the case of promotion from PB-4 to HAG+, after adding one increment in the manner prescribed in Rule 9, the pay in the pay band and existing grade pay will be added and the resultant figure will become the basic pay in HAG+. This shall not exceed Rs. 80,000, the maximum of the scale. For Government servants in receipt of NPA, pay plus NPA will not exceed Rs. 85,000.

14. Mode of payment of arrears of pay - The arrears shall be paid in cash in two instalments. The first instalment should be restricted to 40% of the total arrears. The remaining 60% of arrears should be paid during the next financial year.

Explanation - For the purposes of this rule:

(a) "arrears of pay" in relation to a Government servant, means the difference between:

(i) the aggregate of the pay and allowances to which he is entitled on account of the revision of his pay and allowances under these rules, for the relevant period. Revised allowances (except for dearness allowance and non-practising allowance) will be payable only with effect from 1.9.2008; and

(ii) the aggregate of the pay and allowances to which he would have been entitled (whether such pay and allowances had been received or not) for that period had his pay and allowances not been so revised.

(b) "relevant period" means the period commencing on the 1st day of January, 2006 and ending with the 31st August, 2008.

15.

MEMORANDUM EXPLANATORY TO THE CENTRAL CIVIL SERVICES
(REVISED PAY ) RULES , 2008


Rule 1 - This rule is self-explanatory.

Rule 2 - This rule lays down the categories of employees to whom the rules apply. Except for the categories excluded under clause (2), the rules are applicable to all persons under the rule making control of the President serving in Departments paid from Civil Estimates. They do not apply to the employees under the Ministry of Railways and civilian personnel paid from Defence Services Estimates, for whom separate rules will be issued by the Ministries concerned. The rules do not also apply to Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Department of Posts. The rules, however, apply to work charged establishments.

Rule 3 & 4 - These rules are self-explanatory.

Rule 5 - The intention is that all Government servants should be brought over to the revised pay structure except those who elect to draw pay in the existing scales. Those who exercise the option to continue on the existing scales of pay will continue to draw the dearness allowance at the rates in force on the 1st January, 2006 and the dearness allowance will count towards the emoluments for pension, etc. to the extent it so counted on the said date. If a Government servant is holding a permanent post in a substantive capacity and officiating in a higher post, or would have officiated in one or more posts but for his being on deputation etc., he has the option to retain the existing scale only in respect of one scale. Such a Government servant may retain the existing scale applicable to a permanent post or any one of the officiating posts. In respect of the remaining posts he will necessarily have to be brought over to the revised pay structure.

Rule 6 - This rule prescribes the manner in which option has to be exercised and also the authority who should be apprised of such option. The option has to be exercised in the appropriate form appended to the rules. It should be noted that it is not sufficient for a Government servant to exercise the option within the specified time limit but also to ensure that it reaches the prescribed authority within the time limit. In the case of persons who are outside India at the time these rules are promulgated, the period within which the option has to be exercised is three months from the date they take over charge of the post in India. In the case of Government servants the revised pay structure of whose posts are announced subsequent to the date of issue of these rules, the period of three months will run from the date of such announcement.

Persons who have retired between 1st January 2006 and the date of issue of these rules are also eligible to exercise option.

Rule 7(1) - This rule deals with the actual fixation of pay in the existing scales on 1st January, 2006. A few illustrations indicating the manner in which pay of Government servants should be fixed under this sub-rule subject to stepping up of pay under Notes below rule 7(1) are given in the attached Annexure.





Rule 7(2) - The benefit of this rule is not admissible in cases where a Government servant has elected the revised pay structure in respect of his substantive post, but has retained the existing scale in respect of an officiating post.

Rule 8 - This Rule prescribes the method of fixation of pay of employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1.1.2006.

Rule 9 & 10 - These rules prescribe the manner in which the next increment in the new scale should be regulated. The provisos to this rule are intended to eliminate the anomalies of junior Government servants drawing more pay than their senior by the operation of substantive part of this rule and also taking care of the Government servants who have been drawing pay at the maximum of the existing scale for more than one year as on 1.1.2006 and also those Government servants who have been stagnating at the maximum of the existing scale and are actually in receipt of stagnation increment on ad hoc basis.

Rule 11 to 17 - These rules are self-explanatory.

(V) Formula for fixation of pay in the revised pay structure of Pay Bands and Grade Pays

Sl. No.
Recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission
Decision of the Government
(i)
The pay of employees may be fixed in the proposed scales of pay in the manner laid down in Para 2.2.21(i) to (v) of the Report.
Accepted with the following modifications:

(a) Fixation of pay in the revised Pay Bands will be done by multiplying the basic pay drawn as on 1/1/2006 on the existing Fifth CPC pay scales by a factor of 1.86 and then rounded off to next multiple of 10 and not by a factor of 1.74 as recommended by the Commission.

(b) In the case of Medical Doctors, Dearness Allowance on the Non Practising Allowance will be taken into account while fixing their pay in the revised Pay Bands.
(ii)

a) Though –1S pay scale is not a regular pay scale, initially all Group D employees shall be placed in the -1S pay scale with appropriate grade pay. This pay scale has been devised mainly for the purpose of initial fixation of pay of the Group D employees who had already been recruited on a regular basis as on the date of implementation of this recommendation by the Government.

b) Thereafter, such of those Group D employees as already possess the revised minimum qualifications prescribed for entry into the Group C pay band along with a grade pay of Rs.1800 would be placed in that grade (i.e. pay band of Rs.4860-20200 along with a grade pay of Rs.1800) with effect from 1.1.2006. No fitment benefit would be given again for this fixation.

c) Such of those existing Group D employees who do not possess the minimum qualifications prescribed would need to be retrained and a training package would need to be evolved separately for each of the individual Ministry/Department/Organisation keeping in view their specific needs. After re-training with emphasis on multi-skilling, the Group D staff will be placed in the Pay Band PB-1 of Rs.4860-20200 with the grade pay of Rs.1800. Once placed in the PB-1 Pay Band, this category of Group D staff will regain their seniority vis-à-vis the other category of Group D staff that already possessed the minimum prescribed qualifications and were, therefore, placed in the PB-1 Pay Band immediately.

e) Inter-se seniority of all the employees in erstwhile Group D will be fully maintained with Group D employee in a higher Fifth CPC pay scale being placed higher vis-à-vis an employee in a lower pay scale. Within the same pre-revised pay scale, the seniority will be fixed on the basis of date on which the person came to be placed in that pay scale.

f) Arrears shall be payable with effect from 1.1.2006 in both the cases: to those Group D employees who possess the prescribed qualifications and those Group D employees who do not possess the prescribed qualifications. Retraining of the latter should preferably be completed with in a short period, say 6 months, so that fixation in pay band PB-I and payment arrears of salary is not unduly delayed.

In such cases, the higher grade pay attached to the next promotion post in the hierarchy of the concerned cadre/ organization will be given only at the time of regular promotion.
iv) Financial upgradation under the scheme will be available whenever a person has spent 12 years continuously in the same grade. However, not more than two financial upgradations shall be given in the entire career as was provided in the extant scheme.

House Rent Allowance

The Commission has recommended merger of C Class Cities (having population of 50,000 to 5 lakh) with `Unclassified Towns' (having population of less than 50,000).

The Commission has recommended that the existing population criterion for classifying towns and cities for purposes of HRA may be retained. However, population in the urban agglomeration should be taken into account for classifying a city for purposes of HRA.

The Commission has recommended retention of the existing rate of HRA in A-1 cities to be paid at the rate of 30% of the total of revised pay in the running pay band and grade pay thereon.

The Commission has recommended that the erstwhile A, B-1 and B-2 categories may be merged and C & Unclassified categories may also be merged. The following rates of House Rent Allowance are accordingly recommended:

Risk Allowance

The Commission, accordingly, recommends withdrawal of Risk Allowance. All categories of jobs that involve inherent element of risk with deleterious effect on health over a period of time should instead be provided with free medical and life insurance of Rs.5 lakhs for employees in PB-1 pay band; Rs.7 lakhs for employees in PB-2 pay band; Rs.10 lakhs for employees in PB-3 pay band/higher pay bands/scales. To offset the effect of inflation, amount of the insurance should automatically be increased by 50% every time the DA payable on the revised pay goes up by 50%. The entire expenditure on paying premium for this insurance will be borne by the Government. The amount insured will be paid in case of any serious injury/death sustained in the course of employment and will be over and above the other benefits available to all categories of Government employees. These employees should also be provided with additional health benefits with mandatory health check-ups every quarter and enhanced leave, wherever the same is necessary for proper recuperation. Further, the Government should ensure that latest technology and greatest level of care is observed in these jobs so that the element of risk involved therein is minimized. (Para No. 4.2.68)

Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance

The Commission has separately recommended extension of adequate insurance cover to all such categories of employees who face an element of risk in discharge of their official functions. This insurance cover should be extended to all the categories that are presently in receipt of HPCA/PCA. Simultaneously, HPCA/PCA should be withdrawn as no rationale would exist for these allowances once the element of risk is covered by grant of an appropriate insurance cover. The loss incurred by the employees on this account would be more than compensated in respect of existing Group D employees who will be upgraded to Group C. This loss, for Group C employees, should be compensated in form of Performance Related Incentive Scheme. (Para No. 3.6.18)



Introduction of Risk Insurance Scheme w.e.f. 1.4.2009 after consultation with Staff Side and continuation of Risk Allowance till March 31, 2009.

Leave Travel Concession (LTC)

Central Government employees should be allowed to travel to their home town along with their families on three occasions in a block of four years and to any place in India on the fourth occasion. This facility shall be available to the Government officers only for the first two blocks of four years applicable after joining the Government for the first time. The blocs of 4 years shall apply with reference to the initial date of joining the Government even though the employee changes the job within Government subsequently. The existing blocks will remain the same but the entitlements of the new recruit will be different in the first eight years of service. All other provisions concerning frequency of travel under LTC are to be retained. (Para No. 4.3.5)

Travel entitlements, whether for the purpose of official tour/transfer or LTC, should be same but no daily allowance will be payable for travel on LTC. Further, the facility shall be admissible only in respect of journeys performed in vehicles operated by the Government or any Corporation in the public sector run by the Central or State Government or a local body. (Para No. 4.3.6)

Parents and/or step parents (stepmother and stepfather) who are wholly dependent on the Government employee shall be included in the definition of family for the purpose of LTC irrespective of whether they are residing with the Government employee or not. The definition of dependency is being linked to the minimum family pension for all purposes. Accordingly, all parents and/or step parents whose total income from all sources is less than the minimum family pension prescribed in Central Government and dearness relief thereon would be included in the definition of family for this purpose. The extant conditions in respect of other relations included in the family including married /divorced /abandoned /separated /widowed daughters shall continue without any change. (Para No. 4.3.7)

While encashment of Earned Leave upto 10 days along with LTC to the extent of total of 60 days may be continued, the leave encashed at the time of availing LTC should not be deducted from the maximum amount of Earned Leave encashable at the time of retirement. Consequently, the employees would be eligible to encash 300 days of Earned Leave at the time of their retirement, even though they may have encashed Earned Leave of upto 60 days during their career while availing LTC, whether to their home town or to any place in India. Insofar as Railways is concerned, the employees shall be allowed to avail of this encashment at the time of availing of passes for a maximum of 60 days in the entire career subject to the condition that successive encashment cannot be made before a minimum period of two years has elapsed.
