Central Govt. employees to get 10% Dearness Allowance from 01.01.2014

Consequent to rather unusual decrease in Consumer Price Index Data for December 2013 (4 points decrease), the dream of some central employees regarding 11% hike remains unfulfilled. As predicted earlier, there will be 10% hike in D.A. taking the total toll to 100% with effect from 1st January 2014. This hike will also effect Transport Allowance as usual.
With the D.A. reaching 100%, some allowances including children education allowance will get 25% rise. The hike is generally announced in the month of April after cabinet approval but in the election year, it may be advanced because model code of conduct may create obstruction after the notification of poll by election commission.

when the predicted gap is beyond the scheduled date,perhaps Election Commission needs to be consulted,though the relief is genuine.

Merger of DR with pension whenever it goes above 50%:- The Pension of Central Govt. Pensioners undergo revision only once in 10 years during which period the pension structure gets seriously dis-aligned, 50% increase in price takes place even in less than 5 years. This results in considerable damage to the financial position of the pensioner with otherwise inadequate Pension. As admitted by Shri Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Deputy Chairman, and Planning Commission in his statement to PTI on 27.2.2008, DA does not adequately take care of inflation. Working employees are getting automatic relief by way of 25% increase in their allowances with every 50% rise in Dearness Allowance. As pensioners do not get any allowances, they feel discriminated against. In order to strike a balance, DR may be merged with Pension whenever it goes beyond 50% as recommended by 5th CPC
1]Merger of 50% DR with basic pension w.e.f. 1st Jan 2011.
2]Merger of 100% DR with basic pension w.e.f. 1st Jan 2014.

THE ABROAD TREATMENT SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO ALL AS IN CASE OF BABUS & NETAS
ILL TREATMENT TO PENSIONERS
1]PENSION IS A DEFERRED WAGE; A PENSIONER IS AUTHORISED PENSION AT RATE 50 % OF AVERAGE PAY LAST DRAWN IN TEN MONTHS & FAMILY PENSION @ 30%
2. The Supreme Court in the case of D.S. Nakara [(1983)25CR 165] has laid down the following principles.
I). The date of retirement cannot constitute a valid criterion for determination of pension and any classification or division made on such basis will be violative of Article 14 of the Constitution
ii). Where all relevant considerations are the same i.e. persons holding identical posts cannot be treated differently in the matter of their pay while service, so also they cannot be treated different, when they have retired
iii). In the matter of determination of pension the object sought to be achieved is not to create a class within a class, but to ensure that benefits of pension are made available to all persons of the same class equally.
In the latest judgment of the Supreme Court, in the case of S.P.P. Vain (J T 2008(10) SC 399) it has been further held that the pensioner’s pay is to be fixed notionally at the rate given to similar serving employee on the cut off date and thereafter the quantum of pension is to be determined from that date.
To ensure that the hospitals do not avoid providing reasonable care to smart card holders & other poor citizens, a Hospital Regulatory Authority should be created to bring all NABH accredited hospitals & NABL accredited diagnostic Labs under its constant monitoring of quality, rates for different procedures & timely bill payments by Govt. agencies and Insurance companies. CGHS rates be revised keeping in mind the workability & market conditions.

SUBSEQUENT PAY COMMISSION FIXES PENSION AT MINMUM PENSION IN THE PAY BAND RATHER THAN THE CORRESPONDING PAY BAND/SCALE FROM WHICH THE RETIREE HAS RETIRED.
THERE IS TREMENDOUS LOSS TO PENSIONER & LARGE CHUNK OF MONEY GOES TO THE GOVERNMENT. THE BASIC PRINCIPAL OF EQUALITY IS VIOLATED & PENSIONER IS DENIED HIS BASIC RIGHT OF FULL PENSION WHICH GOVERNMENT HAS SANCTIONED AT TIME OF RETIREMENT. IT IS AGAINST LAW OF LAND.IT HAS CASCADING EFFECT

A] HENCE THE GRADE PAY IS GIVEN AT LOWER RATE,BECAUSE PENSION IS GIVEN AT A LOWER RATE.SO PENSIONER SUFFERS
FURTHER LOSS
B]ACCORDINGLY DR/DA IS REDUCED; AS basic pension is lowered, THE DA IS ALSO GIVEN LESS YEAR BY YEAR AS DA IS ON LOWER PENSION FIXED.
SO PENSIONER SUFFERS FURTHER LOSS

DA SHOULD NOT BE TAXED: IT IS UNJUSTIFIED TO TAX DA. BY TAXING THE DA, EMPLOYEES ARE DENIED THEIR LEGITIMATE RIGHT TO FIGHT INFLATION AS A PIE IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEIR PLATE BY INCOME TAX. IT WAS NOT BEING TAXED FOR SIX DECADES, BUT SMART EX FM PC HAS TAXED THE DA AT HIS OWN WISDOM & NO WHEN RESISTED/CONTESTED.KINDLY DONOT TAX DA.

Principal Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has come to the rescue of pre-2006 pensioners in this aspect by pronouncing judgement to the effect that O.M dated 14.10.2008 is quashed and revised pension fixation has to be done to the Pre-2006 pensioners on the basis of as per the resolution dated 29.08.2008.

KINDLY PAY YEARLY INCREMENT AT HALF RATE OF SERVING i.e 1.5 % as pension is a deferred wage. DENIAL OF YEARLY INCREMENT IN PENSION [WHICH SHOULD BE 1.5% OF BASIC PENSION] THE SERVING GET YEARLY INCREMENT BY 3 %, PENSION BEING DEFERRED WAGE THAN IT SHOULD BE GIVEN TO PENSIONER TOO. PENSIONER’S ARE NEITHER GIVEN YEARLY INCREMENT NOR CORRESPONDING DA RISE DUE TO YEARLY INCREMENT. HENCE A TREMENDOUS FURTHER LOSS TO PENSIONER.
‘The increment is an increase in pay for each year in a particular date. As per 6th CPC the annual increment has been granted on 1st July of every year and the qualifying period for earning an increment is six months on 1st July. One increment is equal to 3% (three per cent) of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of ten.
As per the Rule No.13 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008, “In the case of calculation of increments under the revised pay structure, paise should be ignored, but any amount of a rupee or more should be rounded off to next multiple of 10.’

A DIG WAS ONE TIME JUNIOR TO Lt COL

Colonel has been equated with Non-Functional Selection Grade (NFSG). The rank of a DIG who was till date between a Lt Colonel and a Colonel is now officially equal to a Brigadier. Both are now on a Grade Pay of Rs 8900.

DIG HAS BEEN PUT AT PAR WITH BRIG

[IT IS WORTH MENTIONING THAT POLICE HAS GONE ONE RANK UP ALREADY DURING COAS MALHOTRA TIME. HE DID HIS BEST TO REVERSE POLICE ACTION, BUT COULD NOT DO SO & DID NOT UPGRADE RANK OF HIS FORCES.NOW FURTHER DEGRADATION & MOD/ARMY IS NOT REACTING
TO-DAY BRIG EQUAL IS TO ONLY DIG[ WHO IS JUNIOR TO COL] IN INTER-SE SENIORITY
SO COL HAS NOW BECOME JUNIOR TO DIG ,[FOOLS PARADISE] COMMAND & CONTROL STRUCTURE WILL RUPTURE OF AID TO CIVIL POWER/RR/ASSAM RIFLE

KINDLY RESTORE PRESTIGE & RANK OF COL BY PUTTING COL IN HIGHER BAND TO DIG
Remember in the IV CPC recommended the same pay for Director, Lt Col and DIG. After protests from the police, pay of both Lt Col and DIG were increased at the time.

SUPREME COURT HAS TOLD TO GOVERNMENT TO TAKE CARE OF PAY SCALE OF COL/BRIG
BUT EVERY ONE HAS GONE UP MAJ, TREMENDOUS JUMP TO LTCOL[TS] LT COL & FURTHER MOVED FROM PB-3 TO PB-4
BUT COL/BRIG HAVE BEEN AGAIN LEFT HIGH & DRY.

COL SHOULD BE MOVED TO THIS SCALE SO AS TO AVOID COMMAND & CONTROL PROBLEM IN RR/ASSAM RIF & AID TO CIVIL POWER.

KINDLY MAINTAIN DIGNITY OF COL WHO IS IN DIRECT COMMAND WITH TROOPS & BACK BONE OF ARMY.
SEE HOW MAJ WERE GIVEN FIRST TIME SCALE LTCOL RANK& LATER ON BROUGH AT PAR WITH LT COL SELECTION GRADE SEE HOW MAJOR HAS BEEN BENEFITTED . MOREOVER NOW THEY HAVE BEEN MOVED FROM PB-3 TO PB-4 WHICH IS UNDEMOCRATIC . & VIOLATION OF ARTICLE 14 QUATED ABOVE.
BULK OF ARMY OFFICER WILL NOT TAKE NOW WAR RISKS, AS THEY KNOW THEY ARE MORE BENEFITED BY NOT WORKING & NOT GOING UP THE LADDER IS MORE BENEFICIAL,
AS THERE IS HARDLY ANY DIFFERENCE IN COL[TS] & COL[SELECTION]. SO WHY BOTHER ATTITUDE WILL PREVAIL.A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR ARMY.ENORMOUS BENEFIT TO TIME SCALE MAJ THAN TIME SCALE LT COL [ALL PROMOTION NO RISK]

WORLD OVER ARMY IS PAID 75 % OR 100 % OF PAY, SO AT LEAST PAY 75 % OF PAY AS PENSION ALONG WITH ALL OTHER ALLOWNNCES. . PENSION TO BE 75 PERCENT OF BASIC PAY FOR ARMY; INDIAN ARMY IS ON DESIGN OF BRITISH ARMY. TILL 1955 ARMY PENSION WAS ON SAME LINE. BUT CIVIL BABU'S TOOK IT AWAY. IT SHOULD BE RESTORED AND BE PAID AS PAR WITH BRITISH COUNTER PART OR LIKE OTHER COUNTRIES. INDIAN OFFICER HAS TO FIGHT WAR; YOU CANNOT REPLACE INDIAN OFFICER WITH OFFICER FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. PREVIOUSLY PRINCELY /ELITE FAMILIES USED TO SEND PERSON TO FORCES, NOW CREAMY LAYER IS NOT COMING TO ARMY DUE TO POOR PAY PACKETS & DOWNGRADATION OF ARMY IN INTER-SE-SENIORITY

Thus health care is not only a welfare measure but is a Fundamental Right. As all the pensioners, irrespective of pre-retiral class and status, belong to same category of citizens & the same homogenous group. There should be no class or category based discrimination and must be provided Health care services at par with IAS & ex Ministers.THE ABROAD TREATMENT SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO ALL AS IN CASE OF BABUS & NETAS
