Central Govt Employees To Get PPO, Other Benefits On Retirement Day

New Delhi: The government has decided to give pension payment order (PPO) and all other retirement benefits on the day of retirement to all 50000 central government employees retiring every year, Union minister Jitendra Singh said on Thursday.
“The goal is to ensure 100 per cent payment of all retirement benefits and the delivery of pension payment order (PPO) to retiring employees on the day of retirement itself,” The Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Jitendra Singh said at the inauguration of a workshop on ‘Bhavishya ’, an online pension sanction and payment tracking system for central government retirees.

“Last year of a retiring employee is spent in preparation of pension payment order (PPO) and collecting no-dues certificates as he fears no one will let him in after he retires. The reputation of a retiring government servants becomes such that he is preparing to get his pension on time. This is just not done,” Singh said

“Our experience shows pension payments are considerably delayed. Retirees need a dignified exit from service and can’t be expected to run around for their pension payment order (PPO) and all retirement benefits or make requests to someone for it,” said an official on this occasion.

Bhavishya involves preparation of advance list of employees retiring in the next 12 months and sending each such employee a login and password for ‘ Bhavishya ‘ portal eight months before the date of his retirement on his mobile phone and e-mail ID.

The employee fills up his details on the portal and based on that information, pension forms are auto-generated by the software and submitted for processing. The system then sends SMS and e-mail alerts to the employee, his head of department and disbur...

The Minister said apart from ensuring timely disbursal of pension, the Department is also holding pre-retirement counselling for employees and considering various options on how best to utilize the experience of retired personnel who can contribute a lot to the government and society as they are energetic and resourceful for long beyond 60 years of age.

Trade unions furious over 7th Pay Commission report recommendations: Top 10 reasons why

While the 7th Pay Commission report recommendations have been a source of joy for hundreds of thousands of government employees, for the national trade unions linked to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Left, the hike has not been high enough and they have not kept quiet about it.
Trade unions have protested vehemently against the 7th Pay Commission and are looking for redressal of their grievances and contemplating action. They have also looked at strong industrial action to indicate their unhappiness and will be indicating soon what their future course of action can be. Here are the top 10 reasons why, they say, they are angry with the Seventh Pay panel report:

1. Proposed 7th Pay Commission hike is lowest in many decades and not in sync with inflation - least hike (proposed) in the last 30 years. Considering the inflation, it is unsatisfactory.

2. 7th Pay Commission has recommended a 16 per cent hike in net pay against projected 23.55 per cent.

3. There is a huge gap in maximum and minimum pay in the 7th Pay Commission report recommendations.

4. The gratuity ceiling recommended by 7th Pay Commission has been raised from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 lakh, the benefit of this will go to senior officials only.

5. 7th Pay Commission report has ignored sharp increase in prices justifying substantial upward revision in HRA and other allowances. Instead the commission has reduced rates of HRA from 30 per cent to 24 per cent of the basic pay in A Class cities and corresponding decrease in other cities which is a retrograde recommendation.

6. Doubts about the way the 7th Pay Commission has calculated the figures. For example, they calculated House Rent Allowance (HRA) at 3 per cent against the mandated 7 per cent.

7. As per commodity prices on Agriculture Ministry's website and on the basis of Labour Bureau data, the Basic Pay comes at Rs 11,341 while 7th Pay Commission calculation shows it at Rs 9,218. There is a lot of gap.

8. There is no clarity in the 7th Pay Commission report on the pay revision for lakhs of contract workers in government ministries as well as 3 lakh Grameen Dak Sewaks.

9. 7th Pay Commission is the only commission, which has reduced the allowances and due to which the growth in net income is only 14.28 per cent. (PTI).

10. 7th Pay Commission report is totally disappointing and beats logic. Employees and workers will meet on November 27 to protest against the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and discuss the issue.

NOTE: The 900-page report of the 7th Pay Commission headed by Justice A K Mathur was presented to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley with a recommendation that the new scales be implemented from January 1, 2016. The panel recommended a 14.27 per cent increase in basic pay, the lowest in 70 years. The previous 6th Pay Commission had recommended a 20 per cent hike, which the government doubled while implementing it in 2008.

Seventh CPC Chairman Justice Mathur confirmed submission on 19th November: PTI

New Delhi, Nov 17 (PTI) The 7th Pay Commission will submit its report to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday recommending increase in remuneration of central government employees as well as pensioners.

"We are ready with the report and will submit it on November 19," the Commission's Chairman Justice A K Mathur told PTI.

The Commission was set up by the UPA government in February 2014 to revise remuneration of about 48 lakh central government employees and 55 lakh pensioners.

Its recommendations will also have a bearing on the salaries of the state government staff.

The Union Cabinet had extended the term of the panel in August by four months, till December.

Government constitutes the pay commission almost every 10 years to revise the pay scale of its employees and often these are adopted by states after some modifications.

As part of the exercise, the commission holds discussions with various stakeholders, including organisations, federations, groups representing civil employees as well as Defence services.

The recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are scheduled to take effect from January 1, 2016.

Besides Chairman, other members of the commission are Vivek Rae, a retired IAS officer of 1978 batch, and Rathin Roy, an economist. Meena Agarwal is secretary of the commission.

The 6th Pay Commission was implemented with effect from January 1, 2006; the 5th from 1 January 1996, and the 4th from January 1, 1986.
