Update on Cadre Review of CBEC

The following is the communication issued by Shri.Ravi Mallik, All India Secretary General Of Superintendent's  Association to the members of the Association on the 
latest developments in CBEC Cadre Review.




"Dear friends,    
                                                                                            30.05.2011
Good afternoon
Cadre restructuring proposal has been cleared by FM. Now note will go to cadre review committee comprising Cabinet Secretary, Secretary Revenue, DOPT& Expenditure and also Chairman of CBEC in our case. Secretary Revenue & Expenditure as well as our Chairman have already cleared it. Only the formal clearance of Secretary Cabinet & DOPT is required as the part of cadre review committee.
Now, it is clear that they would do nothing more for us in the matter and only 24% of our officers would be able to retire as AC as per the existing formula. It is, however, also true that we are going to get the promotional posts never expected. But side by side it is also true that all the eligibleofficers belonging to other cadres would be promoted and their promotional vacancies would remain unfilled. The Examiner of 2005 & Appraiser of 2008 will become AC. Moreover, direct recruit Examiner of 2005, 2006, 2007 & so on will certainly retire as Commissioner or above.
So, it is not the end. Be ever ready for the struggle.
Regards
Ravi."

Likely Dearness Allowance for July 2011 for Central Employees.

Though it is very early to predict the D.A. for July 2011 at this point of time, we are being flooded by queries in this relation. It may be realized that D.A. is complete based on arithmetical calculation on All India CPI (IW) (Base 2001=100), the data for the entire six months is required to calculate the installment of D.A. payable. The labour bureau has released the figure for Jan, Feb and March as 188, 185 and 185 respectively. We are yet to know the figures of April, May and June. If we assume that there is no further increase or decrease in the numbers {maintains the cureent level for the next 3 months}, the D. A will be 7% from July 2011.
It is again reminded that it is only an assumption, the correct figure will be uploaded as soon as data available.
Update on 31.05.11 : Min of Labour & Employment .GOI,has released the figures just now. Accordingly  the All India Consumer Price Index Number for Industrial Workers (CPI-IW) on base 2001=100 for the month of April, 2011 increased by 1 point and stood at 186, D.A. will be 7% only if the remaining two months show the same trend, i.e. 185 or 186.

New Pension Scheme : Returns in 2010-11.

In a year when Employees’ Provident Fund gave a 9.5 per cent return and an over 8 per cent inflation rate ate into much of people’s income, the New Pension Scheme gave a mixed bag of results. Rising interest rates and volatile stock markets have impacted its returns in 2010-11 but, since inception, the NPS has managed to do better.

“I circulated to all the ministries the report from Justice Majithia. I got comments from Information and Broadcasting and Commerce Ministries. Only thing I had to get was from Law. I got it yesterday. Within a week I am sending it to the cabinet on which a note will be prepared,” Union Labour Minister Mallikarjuna Kharge told reportersat Hyderabad on 20th May on the sidelines of a function.
Justice Majithia submitted his report on Wage Board for journalists and non-journalists in December last and the matter has been pending for cabinet approval since then.
Journalists unions including the Confederation of Newspapers and News Agencies Employees Organisations have held protests across the country for early notification of the Wage Board recommendations.
They had also sought intervention of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi for notifying the Wage Board recommendations.

Pay Review Committee assured for West Bengal employees.

Mamata Banerjee yesterday met representatives of all the 11 government employees’ unions, including the Left-backed co-ordination committee, and asked them to work impartially and irrespective of party colours. “We are like a family. Give me some time to organise things here. Be patient,” she told the employees. 
She also assured the employees to form a "Pay Review Committee" to address the anomaly of pay in result of the implementation of the revised pay structure. It was a long outstanding demand of the employees and they may hope to get some relief by this way.
The union leaders requested an “interface” with the government so that government employees could express their views.

Central Government rejects proposal of hike in retirement age.

A government committee has rejected a proposal to increase the retirement age of government servants from 60 to 62. The decision is likely to impact over one lakh central government employees and 50,000 defence personnel on the verge of retirement. The proposal — which could have meant saving Rs4,000 crore in this fiscal — was rejected as the government wants a younger bureaucracy.
(Though the number mentioned above is too small comparing to the total strength of the Govt. employees, it may be assumed that the hike was proposed only for a certain section of employees, possibly the Direct Recruited Class I officers.)
