Sixth CPC Report :(i) Dearness Allowance

26 03 2008

The Sixth Central Pay Commission (CPC) has devoted fourth chapter of the report to the subject of Dearness Allowance (DA) payable to government servants. The sanction of Dearness Allowance is at present based on calculated six monthly increase in the All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) (AICPI-IW) with base year 1982=100. At the time when the scales granted by Fifth CPC came into existence (1st Jan.1996) this index stood at 306.03.

Fifth CPC started with calculation of DA @ 0% . from 1st Jan.1996 . In the month of April 2004 the rate at which DA was admissible had crossed the figure of 50% and therefore based on recommendations of the Fifth CPC 50% DA was merged in the basic pay . This addition to basic pay was known as Dearness Pay. .Thereafter every increase in DA was calculated on (Basic Pay + Dearness Pay). It has been observed that since after the merger of dearness pay with basic pay the base for calculation of increase in AICPI was not changed the neutralization in cost of living was presently being done at a rate higher than 100%.

Commission has pointed out that the present method of calculation for increase in cost of living takes into account the price rise in a group of identified commodities. It has compared the relative merits of “chain based” and “fixed base” methods of calculation of estimated growth in cost of living. The AICPI as stated above is based on the increase in cost of a basket of identified commodities. In the fixed base method the calculations are based on the assumption that consumer would adjust his consumption needs in relation to increase or decrease in prices of the constituent commodities. The chain based method takes into account the possibilities of change in consumption pattern due to availability of wider range of consumption goods and the improvement in the quality thereof due to economic growth. The latter methodology has been considered to be more relevant in today’s economic scenario.

However the basic data for the pattern of consumption in respect of several essential commodities would have to be compiled through a detailed all India survey if this methodology is to be adopted . The previous Pay Commissions had different views on this matter. The Fourth CPC favored evolution of a separate index for calculation of cost of living for the government servants. The Fifth CPC however felt that such index would also suffer from imbalances since consumption patterns of various categories of employees would be different. The Sixth CPC has suggested a sample survey through National Statistical Commission for evolving an index based on consumption pattern of government employees. Till this exercise is completed the present methodology of calculating the increase in cost of living and calculation of DA would continue.

whatever may be the hike in pay, no govt servant will never be content with his salary. the price rise will take everything from your pocket. if you try to cover your head with the blanket then your feet will remain bare and viceversa.

At present DA/DR is allowed ignoring the decimal point i.e. 4.93 4% is allowed. Next increase is 10.63 but allowed only 10% We should insist on the GOVT to sanction 5% and 11% when the decimal point is 50 or more. In otherwords, the DA/DR should be 5% and 11% Like that every increase should be allowed. By ignoring this, the employees and pensioners are put to loss. Can this be taken up?

K.P.Ghosh,Genrl Secretary,Rly Pensioners' Association,Madhupur.

If the Govt.Of India decided to impliment 6th C.P.C. w.e.f.01/01/06 a tune of 30 thousand billion of rupee shall have to pay. Whether GOI will accept? Or otherwise it will invoke w.e.f. 01/01/2007. I think today in Cabinet Meeting the matter will decide.

THE UNJUSTIFIED REDUCTION IN THE PERCENTAGE OF DEARNESS ALLOWANCE WITH EFFECT FROM 1-1-2006!

Dear Readers!

The Present Percentage of DA is as follows.
From 1-1-2006- 24%
From 1-7-2006-29% [5%]
From 1-1-2007-35% [6%]
From 1-7-2007-41% [6%]
From 1-1-2008-47% [6%]
From 1-7-2008-55% [8%]

The Proposed Percentage of DA by the 6TH Pay Commission is as follows.
From 1-1-2006-No DA
From 1-7-2006-2%
From 1-1-2007-6% [4%]
From 1-7-2007-9% [3%]
From 1-1-2008-12%[3%]

It can be seen that from 1-7-2006, the Percentage is reduced by 60%,from 1-1-2007 by 33.33%,from 1-7-2007 by 50% and from 1-1-2008 by 50%.It is stated that the Proposed Percentage from 1-7-2008 is 12% [4%]

At first, the Government propagated that there will be 40 to 50% increase.Then it modified it as 28% increase.Now it says that there will be an average increase of 21%.
According to the available information, the increase expected will be only around 20%.
So, the reduction of the Percentage of DA ranging from 33.33% to 60% is wholly unjustified. Justice demands only a reduction of 20% from the existing DA.

So, the Proposed Percentage of DA on the New Scales of Pay should be as follows.
From 1-7-2006- 4%, from 1-1-2007-5%, from 1-7-2007-5%, from 1-1-2008-5% and from 1-7-2008- 6.5%. So, the total percentage of DA as on 1-7-2008 should be 25.5% and not 16% as propagated.
Will the Central Govt look into this and do justice?

B.Annathurai

Dear Sir/Madam, Date:28-08-08
As far as the Scientific & Technological services ( R&D professionals) are concerned, in the S&T/ R&D organisations like DRDO and DAE the Recruitment & Promotion system/scheme applicable is Flexible Complementing Scheme (FCS). But in the same departments there are a lot of non R&D posts of engineering and technical in nature covering group A, B and C services. The recruitment & promotion scheme applicable to these S&T posts of non R&D category is the Merit Promotion Scheme (MPS). As per the existing OM of DoPT, the Pay Scales, the residency periods and the designations under FCS should be same and equal in all S&T departments. Thus a Scientist or Engineer under FCS in DOS, DRDO and DAE won’t be getting less pay than those in other R&D/ S&T institutions/organisations. But for the MPS they are not so defined. The reservation rules of govt. of India for SCs, STs and OBCs are applicable for even class-I posts under MPS in the departments like DAE, DRDO and DOS. Except these three departments, in all other S&T departments wherein the FCS is in operation the reservation rules are covering the S&T posts upto and including class-I service under FCS. Without FCS a department is not defined under S&T/R&D organisation/ institution. Is my observation correct or not?. Kindly clarify it.
Thanking You

WHY THE DISPARITY IN PENSION WITH EFFECT FROM 1-1-2006 AND DENIAL OF NATURAL JUSTICE TO THE POST 1-1-1996 AND PRE 1-1-2006 PENSIONERS BY THE VI CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION AND THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT?
1. PARITY IN PENSION OF THE PRE AND POST 1-1-1996 RETIREES AND NATURAL JUSTICE TO THE PRE AND POST 1-1-1986 PENSIONERS BY THE V CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION AND THE THEN CENTRAL GOVERNMENT!
The main demand of the Past Pensioners [Retired before 1-1-1986] was for full parity in pension to those who retired during the period from 1.1.1986 onwards. The V CPC in Para 137.13 (PP 1830) had observed as under:-

“While it is desirable to grant complete parity in pension to all Past Pensioners irrespective of the date of their retirement, this may not be feasible straightaway as the financial implications would be considerable. The process of bridging the gap in pension of Past Pensioners (Pre 1986 Pensioners) has already been set in motion by the Fourth CPC when past Pensioners were granted additional relief in addition to consolidation of their pension. This process of attainment of- reasonable parity needs to be commuted so as to achieve complete parity over a period of time.”
In Paras 137.13 and .14 of their Report the V CPC stated that as follow-up of our basic objective of parity, we would recommend that pension of all the Pre 1986 Retirees may be updated by notional fixation of their pay as on 1.1.86 by adopting the same formula as for the serving Employees. This step would bring all the Past Pensioners to a common platform or on the IV CPC pay scales as on 1.1.86. Thereafter, all these Pre 1986 Pensioners can be treated alike in regard to consolidation of their pension as on 1.1.96 by allowing the same fitment weightage as may be allowed to the serving Employees.
The Recommendation of the V Central Pay Commission in making Parity in Pension of Pre and Post 1-1-1996 Retirees and Revising the pension of Pre and Post 1-1-1986 Retirees suitably was accepted and implemented by the then Central Government with effect from 1-1-1996.
Had not both the V Central Pay Commission and the then Central Government had done JUSTICE to the Pre and Post 1-1-1986 Pensioners!

2. DISPARITY IN PENSION BETWEEN THE PRE AND POST 1-1-2006 RETIREES AND INJUSTICE TO THE PRE 1-1-2006 PENSIONERS BY THE VI CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION!

The Disparity in Pension between the Pre and Post 1-1-2006 Retirees and the injustice done by the VI Central Pay Commission and the Central Government to the Post 1-1-1996 and Pre 1-1-2006 Pensioners can be clearly understood by the following facts.

A. Fixation of Revised Pay and Pension in respect of Four Post 1-1-2006 Retirees is given below as per OM FN01/1/2008-IC dt.30-8-2008 and OM FN038/37/08P&PW[A] dt.2-9-2008 of Ministry of Finance,Govt of India.

a.Pre Revised Scale:5500-175-9000 [S10]
Corresponding Revised Scale:9300-34800+Grade Pay
Rs4200 [PB2]

i.Basic Pay:Rs 5500.
Revised Pay: Rs 14430 [10230+4200]
Pension:Rs 7215[50% of Pay]
ii.Basic Pay:Rs.6550.
Revised Pay:Rs16390[12190+4200]
Pension:Rs 8195[50%of Pay].

b.Pre Revised Scale:10000-325-15200 [S19]
Corresponding Revised Scale:15600-39100+
Grade Pay Rs 6600[PB3]
i.Basic Pay:Rs 10000.
Revised Pay:Rs25200 [18600+6600]
Pension:Rs12600[50% of Pay]
ii.Basic Pay:Rs.11950.
Revised Pay:28830 [22230+6600]
Pension;Rs14415 [50% of Pay]

B.Fixation of Revised Pension of Pre 1-1-2006 Retirees by the VI Central Pay Commission as per Memorahdum FNO 38/37/08-P&PW [A] dt 1-9-2008 of the Ministry of Finance,Government of India

The formula fixed by the VI Pay Commission for arriving at the Revised Pension is as follows.

Basic Pay without DP x1.86+40% of the Basic Pay.The Condition is that the Revised Pension should not be less than 50% of the minimum of the Corresponding Revised Scale+Grade Pay.
This Formula could be applied only to Pre 1-1-1996 Retirees.But the Condition that the Revised Pension should not be less than 50% of the minimum of the Revised Pay and Grade Pay cannot be applied to them since they are not covered by the Pay Scales effective from 1-1-1996.
So,the Pay Commission has really intended to apply this formula only to Employees retired from 2-1-1996 to 31-12-2005.
According to the Pay Commission, we are to find out the Corresponding Pay in the Revised Scale by adding the Grade Pay.After finding out the Corresponding Pay,we have to work out 50% of the Revised Pay which will be the Revised Pension effective from 1-1-2006. But the Condition has been wronly worded as ‘The Revised Pension shoud not be less than 50% of the minimum of the Revised Scale+Grade Pay instead of ‘The Revised Pension should not be less than 50% of the Revised Pay + Grade Pay’
So,the Condition has to be modified suitably.

Here,two illustrations are given in respect of Revision of Pension of Four Pre 1-1-2006 Retirees.

1.Basic Pay: Rs 5500.
Pension:Rs. 6215 [2750 [50% of Basic Pay]x1.86+40% of Rs2750]
2.Basic Pay:Rs 6550.
Pension:Rs.7403 [3275[50% of Basic Pay]x1.86+40% of Rs3275]
3.Basic Pay: Rs 10000.
Pension:Rs11300 [5000 [50%of Basic Pay[x1.86+40% of Rs5000]
4.Basic Pay Rs 11950.
Pension:Rs13505.[5975 [50%of Basic Pay]x1.86+40% of Rs 5975]

According to the formula of the Pay Commission, a Pensioner drawing a Basic Pay of Rs 6550 in the Scale of Rs 5500-175-9000[S10] will get only 50% of the minimum of the Revised Scale[Rs 9300-34800-PB 2]+Grade Pay of Rs4200 viz,Rs 7215 and not Rs 8195[Revised for Post 1-1-2006 Pensioner] as Pension!
Similarly,a Pensioner drawing a Basic Pay of Rs 11950 in the Scale of Rs.10000-325-15200 [S19] will get only 50% of the minimum of the Revised Scale [Rs 15600-39100-PB 3]+Grade Pay of Rs 6600 viz,Rs 12600 and not 14415 [Revised for Post 1-1-2006 Pensioner]as Pension!
Why the Pay Commission and the Central Govt have done injustice by applying double standards to the Pre and Post 1-1-2006 Pensioners who belong to the very same Pay Band?

Will not the following variations affect the Pre 1-1-2006
Pensioners permanently?

Basic Pay Rs.5500: Post 1-1-2006 Pensioner will get Rs1000 more per month besides DA!
Basic Pay Rs 6550:Post 1-1-2006 Pensioner will get
Rs 792 more per month besides DA!
Basic Pay Rs 10000: Post 1-1-2006 Pensioner will get Rs 1300 more besides DA!
Basic Pay Rs 11950: Post 1-1-2006 Pensioner will get Rs 910 more besides DA!

CONCLUSION

Is this wide variation between the pensions in the cases of Pre and Post 1-1-2006 Retirees with effect from 1-1-2006 even though they belong to the same Pay Band not against Natural Justice?

Will the Central Government immediately look into this Disparity, do JUSTICE to the Pensioners who retired from 2-1-1996 to 31-12-2005 and issue orders bringing PARITY in Pension of both the Pre and Post 1-1-2006 Pensioners as they belong to the same Pay Band?

Calculating Avg salary for 10 months has been removed for calculating
retirement benefits like Gratuity and Encashment of E L but for calculating pension
benefits the same method is in force.Is it true?

15 09 2008
Rajalekshmy K.

Those who have retired after Dec 2005,may get much less pension than those retiring before Dec 2005 if the avg 10 mths salary method is used for calculating pension.
For e.g for those with basic pay of Rs.11950 as on1st jan 2006 , increment month also Jan, will be getting a basic pay of Rs.28870. according to the 6th pay comm.Hence pension should work out to Rs.14435.,but it is only Rs.11114.as per the Calculators provided.If one deducts commuted portion from this amount there willbe a balance of Rs.7594.U may add DA OF 16% on Rs.11114 to this amont and arrive at a fig of Rs.9372.,which is less than Rs.9408. which the person is receiving now.what will
be left with him if he opts for another commutation which has become due to him
after basic pay revision .I request ur enlightened susbscribers to give their versions.

Unit Run Canteen Employees are being victimized since last 40 years. Hon;ble Supreme court declared them Govt employees vide its Judgment in CA 1039-10442/99 and directed the UOI to determine service conditions. Since last eitht years UOI has not fraimed service conditions for these employees. Unit Run canteen total in all 3400 earning over 600 crores per annum but its employees are very poorly paid, even no minimum wages are applicable to them. No dearness allowances. A representation was fwd to 6th CPC but not included in its report. Is it not a unjustice with the Unit Run canteen employees. Where is the justice. TS Chauhan, Gen Secy, AIDCCEU

Govt of India loosing in Crores but no one aware even after number of complaints/representations to Govt of India.
It was in 1953 C&AG and Public Accounts Committee(PAC) have made observation that as a govt dept the funds of CSD should be regulated through the CFI budgted and voted by the Parliament. The three service HQs did not favour merging the funds of the CSD with the CFI loosing its independent identity. The Ministry of Defence also did not agree to the merger of CSD funds with the CFI as the department will not be able to function as a Commercial entity and at the same time adhere to the rules and regulations for the Govt department. It was however in 1976 a final decesion was taken to merge the funds of the CSD with CFI. Since than the employees of CSD treated from private employees to full flaged Govt employees. BUT this is not doen for the URC ( Unit Run Canteen employees. The Diference between Unit Run Canteen employees and CSD employees in another word whole saler and Retailers. CSD Make bulk purchase from manufacturer and sells it to URC. The URC ( popularly known as CSD canteens) are run under the aggange,ment of the Unit/Formations of Defence services.
The total turn over of CSD is depends on URCs only. If the URC stop their functioning /selling the CSD Stores than CSD will be totally un-functional. In another word whole sale business of CSDS depends on URCs.
Profit of 34 CSD Depot is regulated throght CFI, but what about the 3800 URCs who deals in retails with 1.3 milions peoples. The whole profit of URC s used by the Commanding officers of three services. The turn over of URCs is more than 5600 crores and profit earn by these URCs are utilised by the commanding officers than why the CAG has not objected for this since 1977. The whole profit utilised by the offcers of three services in the name of Non Public Fund in crores, withgou any sanction of Govt of India.

The 87th report of Parliament came haviely on this issue(para 2.27 of report says “The committee has came to the conclusion that they are extremly exploited lot, to say theleast. Their service conditions are extermely poor and sub standard. At most of places their salaries are merger , even below the minimum wages, applicable at the particular stations. They are not entitled to any provident fund, medical and other facilities, whiich are basic needs of the employees in the modern day society”
The report further says ”
“There appears to be a deep rooted vested interest which is coming in the way of the Ministry of Defence and the three forces to give these employees a fair deal.”

If a highly deceplained govt department the Ministry of Dfenece deal with their employees ( Unit Run Canteens) in such a way, than what we should think about the others?
PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS ISSUE. WHY THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE IS KEPT MOM ON THIS IFFUE WHERE THE GOVT IS LOOSING IN CRORES BY NOT TAKING OVER THE UNIT RUN CANTEENS BY THE GOVT.

Hi Readers.
Denial for their own undertakings by the Commanding officers of Unit Run Canteens(Defence)
Do you know, we are the employees working under the Ministry of Defence Govt of India in Unit run Canteens polularly known as CSd Canteen total in all approx 3400 controlled and commanded by the three service Headquarters. Hon’ble Supreme court declared these employees Govt employees in long back Jan 1001. The Army Headquarters(DDGCS) issued their own order No.96029/Q/DDGCS.dated 28.4.2003. Under Para 18(a) it was stated ” Minimum scales available to employees in CSD(I) will be granted to Unit Run Canteen employees. ”

The Minimum scales of CSD(I) has been revised by the Sith CPC vide Notification dt 29 Aug 2008 and all the employees of CSD(I) has been paid revised Pay of 6th CPC but Unit Run Canteen employees are still waiting for their Minimum Basic Pay. Hon’ble Raksha Mantri Shri A.K. Antony approached by the Association through its Patron in Chief Shri Harish Rawat, MP and also met to Sh. Antony, but nothing has been done so far. The Association also approached Hon;ble Defence Secretary vide its letter dy 24 Mar 08,15 Aug 08,20 Sep 08 and 23 Aug 08. The Association also met DDGCS on 29 Sep 08 and the DDGCS was agreed that as per their own order they are bound to issue Minimum basic Pay to URC employees but no such order issued till date.

It is very surprise that the very diceplained department is not adhearing too their own orders than what we can expect from the others.

May I seek your comment on the subject. is it justice with the Unit Run Canteen Employees ?

Sincerely Yours

Hi readears:
May I seek the atention of Govt of India, attention of peoples of India and attention of law making peoples of world and attention of Honourable Justice of Human Right Commission, Print Media, Electronic Media and all social welfare workers. Our civilian employees in the Unit Run Canteens(Short URCs) working since last 50 years under the Ministry of Defence are very badly victimised by non payment of proper remoneration to them. This Association is figthing since last 20 years and submitted its representations from President of India to the bottom immediate employers, all court matters have been given in favour of URC employees but nothing has been done so far in favour of URC employees. Honourable Supreme court vide its order in CA 1039-1042/99, declared on 4th Jan 2001 and directed the Ministry of Defence Govt of India to frame service Rules for these employees. In order to issue service Rules what had been done by the Department that they framed such a Rules(dt 28.4.2003) by which ,they have reduced the pay of URC employees, what they were getting earlier, i.e
most of URC employees were getting before implementing of new Rules, all allowances like DA,CCA,HRA,Conveyance, EPF, Bonus, Gratuity but what happends after new Rules, the Management have reduced their Payinstead of increasing their Pay perks. The Hon’ble Supreme court directed them to pay minimum to the pay scales available to their counter parts in CSD that is at par with other Central Govt employees but employees of URCs have put to lover than the Minimum wages. Now a days URC employees are getting the following pers nothing else:
Pay of URC Employees Pay of Govt Employees
Class IV employees 2650+65 yearly increment 7000+DA+HRA+CCA & ors allcs
LDC 3050+75 ” ” 7780+all other allces
UDC 4000+100 ” ” 9840+ all other allces
Accountant 4500+150 ” ” 14430+ all other allces
After declaration of 6th CPC, these URC employees are dying without eating.Actualy what they are getting per month from Rs 2600 to 4500 after having rendered serives 10 to 40 yearsd services, our Manager in URC is getting less than the ‘Safaiwala’ of Govt Servants. Now it becomes very difficult to even take two time meals by the URC employees in the above mentioned salary whereas in other hand our counterparts in the CSD are emjoying all govt facilities and getting handsome pay perks.
The Profit of URCs are is Crores and its yearly turnover exceeded to 56000 crores. Not only this but the Govt of India Ministry of Defence is also giving them quantitative discount to URCs , this financial year this was 170 crores. This all profit are expending by the immediate commanding officers without any Govt audit. The C and AG has also been informed by the AIDCCEU but nothing has been done by them. I can only pray to these Defence Officers and the Ministry of Defence to llok into and give some fare deal to these poor URC employees. At least give them such remuneration so that they can maintain them selves and their families in a better way.
I also seek help of the all Trade Unions/All Welfare Associations/all Print Midia and all Electronics Media , to all Ministers,and to the Human Righ commission to save these employees. I also request the Govt of India to detail a Committee of expert to visit the Unit Run Canteens across the country and examine the actual conditions of these employees, their service conditions , work conditions and suggest the Govt , some social security for these employees.
SEEK in your comment please.
Thanking you yours TS Chauhan, Secretary General, AIDCCEU.

Hi readers :
Where is Law & Justice ? I am Secretary General of AIDCCEU keep on taking up matters with regard to employees of Unit Run Canteen in the three service (Defence) .These employees are being victimised in the Department which is known a nodel department of India. One side the three chief stand before the Raksha Mantri against their Pay packages fixed by the Sixth Pay commission and approved by the Cabinet and in other side they do not accept increase in in Pay scales of their civilian employees working in the Unit Run Canteens , managed, commanded and controlled by three service headquarters. The poor employees across the country adopted the Gandhian path and sat on hunger strike for 18 days at the Jantar Mantar from 16 Feb 09 to 06 Mar 09, for their just demand to increase their basic Pay as per their own orders dt 28 Apr 03,but all in vain. Unit run canteens are earning profit in crores but this profit is not credited to govt exchequer. This profit is utilised by the department in the name of Non Public fund.
The matter has been taken up with the Pay commission, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of DOPT, Hon’ble President of India, Hon;ble PM of India. We have not left any head from top to bottom but all in vain. The civilian employees are still victimised. They are being paid very poorly. May I have attention of Govt of India to look into and take measure to save the poor employees. Why not a Parliamentry Committee be detailed to determine the Service conditions of these employees. At least their Pay be increased in such a way that they can arrange two time meals.
Thanks, TS Chauhan, Secretary General, AIDCCEU.
