CGHS Rates Doubled

CGHS Rates Doubled - Old Beneficiaries (Pensioners) rush to get Life Time CGHS Card immediately!




     The CGHS rates are doubled. Government has issued orders enhancing the rates. It has issued another order on 16th January changing the date of effect to 1.2.2017 instead of 31.01.2017. Therefore all those Pensioners, who have already not in possession of 'Life Time CGHS Cards' but renewing every year by year basis are advised to immediately go to CGHS Additional Director's Office to convert their CGHS Cards as 'Life Time Cards' before 31.01.2017. The amount to be remitted through Bank DD can be calculated at Addl. Director office. If this facility is not availed before the end of this month, they will have to pay at higher rates like the Serving Employees from 1.2.2017 for availing CGHS benefits. AIPRPA leaders are requested to spread this message among all CGHS beneficiary Pensioners. Similarly if any Postal Pensioner who is not joined CGHS, but otherwise entitled to join, may also avail this facility before 31.01.2017. -

Advancing Budget to Feb 1 will ensure quality in Govt expenditure



      The Central Government earmarked close to Rs 20 lakh crore on the expenditure head of the Budget for 2016-17. It would be safe to assume that for the financial year 2017-18, the total expenditure to be allocated by Finance Minister Mr Arun Jaitley would be between Rs 22 lakh crore and Rs 23 lakh crore. This would be about 14 per cent of India’s Gross Domestic Product at current prices.                                                            
 Prakash Chawala

Unlike in the past when the Budget was presented to Parliament on the last working day of February, the Finance Minister would do the honours on February 1, for 2017-18.  Without going into any political debate, an independent analysis would certainly make out a strong case for advancing the Budget presentation, purely on the ground that it would help the government to achieve two most import objectives.

The first and foremost goal is and should be to achieve the quality of expenditure and the way the Central schemes and projects are executed would certainly change when the money allocated to each of them is approved by Parliament well in time and transferred to the concerned departments or ministries.  The second achievement following from the first would be the difference a quality government spend makes to the country’s GDP growth. The government expenditure in excess of Rs 20 lakh crore would make a huge difference to revival of investment and boosting consumer demand, also helped by implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission report for the Central Government employees.    

Under the system  prevalent so far, the Budget is presented in the Lok Sabha on the last working day of February and a vote on account is obtained from Parliament to draw money from the Consolidated Fund of India from April 1, the opening day of the new financial year.

The Budget session is divided into two phases and it is in the first phase that the Vote on Account is obtained to enable uninterrupted functioning of the government while the full and final Parliamentary go-ahead is available some time in May towards the end of the  second phase of the Budget  session.  While the Finance Minister’s Budget Speech comprising tax and non-tax proposals at the time of the Budget presentation is considered an important policy direction of the government of the day, quite often his closing speech at the end of the exhaustive parliamentary debate on the Budget is used at times to make any amends, depending on the popular response to the Budget proposals.

But by the time the full and final outlays are available, at least first quarter of the financial year is over and out.  It is in the second quarter that the departments begin work on implementing the projects and programmes as announced in the Budget, the most important blue-print of the government.  The government funds cannot be spent just like a private business house does. It must follow well laid down procedures which can stand scrutiny of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) and various other agencies like the Central Vigilance Commission, besides Parliamentary committees.  No wonder, the bureaucrats tasked with the implementation of the programmes and policies would rather err on the side of caution.  The entire procedure of floating tenders, finalizing the deals etc can take another few months, making it possible for the departments to place the orders with the contractors only in the middle or end of the third quarter in most cases. The money gets spent in the last quarter and somehow, has to be spent by March 31.

Naturally, the pressure is back-loaded on the system, resulting at times in dilution of the quality of expenditure, not by design but by default.

All that would change for better with advancement of the Budget, which should now get passed in the first phase of the Budget session even after demands for grants of different key ministries are adequately debated in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.  The intention of the government is to begin the spending programmes right in the beginning of the fiscal, making the Budget implementation front-loaded, rather than back- loaded.  

While such an option is always welcome, the requirement of it is much more urgent at this state of economy which has to deal with the issue of revival in consumer demand and boost investment, which has to be led by the government, given the fact that the private sector is over-leveraged with idle capacity in several key sectors. As is well conceded by senior ministers in different economic wings of the government, the state expenditure in sectors like roads, airports, ports, shipping, agriculture infrastructure etc would show the way to the economic revival in the fiscal 2017.  Once a momentum is built, the private sector should then get a multiplier effect and the entire virtuous cycle would see a transformation.

With an expectation of great focus on the rural landscape in the Budget, the government programmes relating to agriculture and the allied sectors should really be catalytic in the GDP momentum in the coming months.  

So, the entire Budget exercise must get completed sooner than later. The issues relating to the GDP relating to the current fiscal which become the basis for the next year’s Budget estimates can get sorted out with advance statistical tools and techniques. What matters is the intent.

CONFEDERATION CIRCULAR









IMPORTANT CIRCULAR

To,

1. All National Secretariat Members
2. Chief Executives of all Affiliated Organizations
3. General Secretaries of all C-O-Cs

Dear Comrades,

1.     NJCA MEETING - NO CONSENSUS ON REVIVAL OF DEFERRED INDEFINITE STRIKE

Much awaited meeting of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) was held on 17th January at National Council (JCM) Staff-side office at New Delhi. Leaders of Railways, Defence, Postal & Confederation attended. Detailed discussions were held on the developments that took place after the deferment of the indefinite strike of 11th July 2016 and also on the totally negative attitude of the Government towards the 7th Pay Commission related issues of Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners,  including increase in Minimum Pay, Fitment formula, Allowances, Pensioner’s Option-I etc.

Unfortunately, there was no consensus regarding revival of the deferred indefinite strike. Hence no decision could be taken. Meeting ended with an understanding to meet again after some days. In the meantime, NJCA Chairman and Convener may try to meet the Cabinet Ministers who have given the assurances on 30th June 2016 to NJCA leaders.

2.   IMPORTANCE OF 16TH MARCH 2017 CONFEDERATION STRIKE

The clear picture that emerged from the NJCA meeting held on 17-01-2017 is that there is no possibility of revival of deferred indefinite strike by NJCA  in the near future. It is also a fact that Govt. may implement the recommendations of Allowances Committee, Pension Committee etc., before or immediately after March 2017. It has become certain that the Pension Committee has rejected Option-I recommended by 7th CPC, the one and the only good recommendation of 7th CPC and the Implementation Cell of the Finance Ministry is processing the recommendation of Pension Committee for Cabinet approval. Whether the Allowance Committee will recommend change in the recommendations of 7th CPC (I.e., %ge of HRA etc.,) nobody can predict. The request of the Convener of NJCA to the Chairman, Allowance Committee, (Finance Secretary) to hold another meeting with Staff-side was also not conceded by the Committee till date. There is every possibility that Govt. may not implement the recommendations of the Allowance Committee retrospectively from 01-01-2016, instead it may implement it from 01-01-2017 or 01-04-2017. After, Govt. unilaterally implementing everything, declaring  strike is a futile exercise and betrayal of the employees and Pensioners. We should strike when the iron is hot. The unilateral decision of the Govt. to implement “very good” benchmark for MACP has cast shadow on the future promotional prospects of a large number of employees who are not in the good book of the Government and administration for reasons best known to them. The NPS Committee appointed by the Govt. is not mandated to recommend scrapping of New Pension Scheme, but it is for recommending cosmetic changes in NPS in the name of streamlining the NPS as recommended by 7th CPC.

Regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula, no High Level Committee is constituted till date, as assured by the Group of Senior Cabinet Ministers to NJCA leaders on 30-06-2016. A Group of Senior Officers held two round discussion with the Staff-side, but surprisingly they had not come prepared to discuss increase in Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula. They made a mockery of the meeting by disclosing in the first meeting that they are not fully aware of the details of the issue and in the second meeting they told that they came for discussing Allowances (though another Committee for Allowances is already constituted) and not Minimum Wage or Fitment Formula!!!. The last meeting was held in October 2016 and thereafter no meeting is notified. All anomalies arising out of implementation of 7th CPC recommendations remain unsettled.

There is no improvement in the issues relating to Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS), Casual, Contract Workers and Daily-rated mazdoors. The GDS Committee Report submitted to Government on 24-11-2016, it yet to be published. Even if it is published, it may take time for implementation. Other demands submitted to Govt. by the NJCA strike notice served on the 10th June 2016 and charter of demands are also pending. The four months time fixed for Allowance Committee already extended to six months. The four months time for increasing Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula expired on 30-10-2016.

All the employees and Pensioners are totally disappointed and are voicing their anger and protest through various forums and social media. In the above circumstances everybody expected that the NJCA shall revive the deferred indefinite strike. Inspite of our best efforts that is not happening.

3.   SOMEBODY SHOULD COME FORWARD TO PROTEST AND CONFEDERATION IS TAKING UP THAT RESPONSIBILITY

When the three Cabinet Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singh, Home Minister, Shri Arun Jaitely, Finance Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhu, Railway Minister have gone back from their assurances and betrayed 33 lakhs Central Govt Employees and 34 lakhs Pensioners, when the Government is going ahead unilaterally without even consulting the NJCA leaders, we cannot remain silent spectators and accept every decision of the Government, lying down, without any protest. Somebody should come forward to protest and if necessary to suffer and sacrifice and history has bestowed that responsibility on Confederation and Confederation is ready to accept the challenge and responsibility. We are not afraid of the NDA Govt. when we are fighting for the justified demands. All employees are eagerly looking towards Confederation and they want Confederation to lead, whether others may follow or not. It is in this background the Diamond Jubilee year, All India Conference of Confederation held at Chennai from 16th to 18th August 2016 has taken the historic decision to organize independent trade union action including strike, if NJCA is not ready to revive the deferred indefinite strike.

4.   INTENSIFY MOBILIZATION CAMPAIGN – MAKE THE 2017 MARCH 16th ONE DAY STRIKE A HISTORIC SUCCESS.

All of us should clearly understand that more than the strike, the intensive nationwide mobilization and campaign plays an important role in building up pressure on the Govt and settling the demands. The success of the strike also depends upon the mobilization and campaign work carried out by the leadership, especially the grass-root level leadership. The date of one day strike was postponed to March 16th due to the following reasons :
(a)Election Commission has notified election to five State Assemblies during the month of February and first half of March 2017.
(b)15th February 2017, which was our strike date, happens to be a polling day in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.

In the campaign programme of the National Secretariat Members, already published, if any change in date is required, the concerned National Secretariat Members and C-O-Cs may make it in consultation with each other.

5. INDEPENDENT CAMPAIGN BY EACH AFFILIATE AND C-O-C IS MOST IMPORTANT

In addition to the campaign programme of National Secretariat members, all affiliated organizations and C-O-Cs should plan their own independent campaign programme. Office meetings, General body meetings, Gate meetings, Conventions, Managing body meetings may be held at all places. Posters, notices, bulletins etc, may be printed and circulated widely among the employees. Maximum publicity may be given through print/electronic media and social media like whatsapp, face book etc,. Intelligence Agencies of the Govt will report each and every movement from our side and let the report reach the Government that the entire Central Government employees and Pensioners are totally disappointed and their resentment is growing day by day. Please give top priority to campaign. No leader whether All India, State or Unit level shall sit idle in the coming days and everybody should be in the field, mobilizing the employees. Betrayal of the Cabinet Ministers of NDA should be exposed among the employees, Pensioners and general public, especially in the poll-bound five States.

6. SERVE STRIKE NOTICE BEFORE 10th FEBRUARY 2017, IF NOT ALREADY SERVED

All Affiliated Organizations should serve the strike notice to their respective departmental Heads. Proforma of the strike notice and charter of demands already published in the Confederation website www.confederationhq.blogspot.com. If any organization has not served the strike notice to their Departmental Head, they should serve it before 10th February 2017. Those organizations which had already served the strike notice as 15th February 2017, should give a letter to the authority concerned, intimating the postponement of the strike date to 16th March 2017, due to declaration of election to five State Assemblies (if necessary, revised strike notice can be given). Copies of the strike notice served to the Departmental Heads should be circulated to all lower units. Complaints are received at Confederation CHQ that some organizations are not circulating their strike notice to lower units which creates a lot of confusion at unit level. This should be avoided and each organization should ensure that copy of the strike notice is circulated to all lower units WITHOUT FAIL.


7.   NAME & POSTAL ADDRESS OF WOMEN SUB-COMMITTEE MEMBERS OF CONFEDERATION

Confederation CHQ had already written letters to the concerned Chief Executives of the affiliated organizations to intimate the full postal address with PIN code of all newly elected Women Sub Committee members of Confederation. It is requested that the same may be furnished before 31stJanuary 2017.

8.   HELP CONFEDERATION TO SERVE YOU BETTER

All of you are aware that the financial position of the Confederation CHQ is not at all sound. It is needless to mention that without fund, no organization can function. For Parliament March and strike mobilization etc., big amount is already be spent. We are continuously fighting against the Government’s policies and for efficient and vibrant functioning, funds are required. All Affiliated Organizations and C-O-Cs are requested to collect and remit maximum quota and donations to the Confederation immediately. The amount may be remitted to the following address:

Single Sign On-CSI-FSI Integration Process

Single Sign On-CSI-FSI Integration Process


From: DDG (Technology)
Sent: Thursday, November 17, 2016 5:24 PM
To: All CPMG
Cc: ADG (CSI); Director (Technology)

Subject: Single Sign On-CSI-FSI Integration Process

Respected Madam/ Sir,
As you are aware the pilot (I) rollout of CSI has been successfully completed in Mysuru Division, Karnataka. As part of the CSI project,each employee has been provided with an employee code which will be used as a login ID.

The counter-staff now has multiple log-in credentials viz; CSI log-in, Finacle log-in and McCamish log-in. This system is not only cumbersome, time taking but also not very secure from the point of view of authentication of financial transactions.

In view of the above points it has been decided that there shall be only one log-in credentials per user for all applications. The CSI shall provide the Single Sign On (SSO) solution for this functionality. . The SSO solution shall ensure that each employee having the CSI log-in credentials should be able to access Finacle and McCamish. The SSO shall have verification and authentication system to make it a secure system. This would help the Employees as they will not have to handle multiple log-in credentials. It will be beneficial for the Department and the public as every financial transaction shall be authenticated. The chances of frauds and embezzlements using others’ log-in credentials will reduce drastically thus making the system more reliable and secure.

It is required that each employee’s ID provided by CBS and PLI is mapped with the one provided by the CSI. This activity is essential to avoid any operational difficulties once the SSO is rolled out. In order to do this mapping the M/s TCS has provided a portal along with the log-in credentials for each division. The CBS User-id and PLI user-id along with the mobile number and Aadhar number are to be filled in for all employees on this portal. Some data is pre-populated including mobile number and adhaar number for officials who have already shared these details.

In case of addition of new employees whose names might not be reflecting on the portal, it is requested to follow the procedure of getting their AD user created for them. Once their AD users are created the portal shall automatically be updated and their names shall reflect on it.

It is requested that due-diligence may be followed in this activity as SSO shall become extremely important for smooth functioning of the Post Offices. The link of the portal is given below:

The log-in credentials is attached to this mail. It is requested to complete this activity by 1st December, 2016.

Yours Sincerely,

In the meantime NJCA Chairman and Convener may try to meet the Cabinet Ministers who have given the assurances on 30th June 2016 to NJCA leaders.

As there is no immediate possibility for revival of the indefinite strike by NJCA, Confederation National Secretariat has decided to intensify the mobilization campaign and preparation for making the 16th March 2017 one day strike a grand success. All Affiliated Organizations and C-O-Cs are once again requested to make all –out efforts to ensure cent percent participation of employees in the strike. In addition to the campaign programme of National Secretariat members, each affiliated organization and C-O-Cs should chalk out their own separate campaign programme. Please give wide publicity through local print / electronic media and social media like whatsapp, facebook etc.

No doubt, our strike will have a great impact in settling the demands and also in exposing the powers-that-be who betrayed the cause of 33 lakhs Central Govt Employees and 34 lakhs Pensioners.

Somebody should come forward to protest and also, if necessary, to suffer and Confederation is ready for it.

Let Confederation lead and others follow.

PFRDA has appointed Karvy Computers as 2nd Central Record keeping Agency for NPS

Subscribers of National Pension Scheme (NPS) will soon have an option to choose Central Record keeping Agency as the sector regulator PFRDA has appointed Karvy Computershare to offer such services.

Currently, NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure is the only CRA, which establish an internal system that delivers compliance with standards for internal organisation and operational conduct, with the aim of protecting the interests of NPS subscribers and their assets.

“Karvy Computer share Pvt Ltd is currently at an advanced stage of CRA system development and is expected to become operational in the near future,” said the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA).

Now there will be two CRAs operating in the NPS system – NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure and Karvy Compurtershare, it said.

Karvy was issued Certificate of Registration by the PFRDA in June last year.

“The choice of CRA can be made by the employer (existing or prospective) between the existing CRA and the new CRA depending on the policy of employer in case where there is employer-employee relationship,” the regulator said.

Voluntary subscribers will have an option to choose a CRA while in the case of NPS-Lite subscribers, the aggregator will decide on the CRA.

In case of government sector subscribers, the government will chose the CRA for rendering the services.

A CRA is responsible for recordkeeping, administration and customer service functions for all NPS subscribers. The function includes receiving instructions from subscribers through the points of presence, transmitting such instructions to pension funds and effecting switching instructions received from subscribers.

It acts as an operational interface between PFRDA and other NPS intermediaries such as pension fund managers, annuity service providers, and Trustee Bank.

As on November 30, 2016 there were about 1.4 crore subscribers under NPS with over Rs 1.61-lakh crore asset under management.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

SUB:       CERTIFICATE OF RE-MARRIAGE/MARRIAGE—REG.


            The undersigned is directed to refer to Annexure XXVI of the Scheme Booklet of the O/o CGA, which is a proforma for Certificate of Re-marriage/Marriage. As per the Scheme Booklet, this certificate is to be submitted once every six months in May and November by widowers and unmarried daughters; this is required to be countersigned by a responsible officer or a well-known person.

2.         This department has received request from Pensioners Union of Railway Employees, Chennai. (copy enclosed) stating that the widows of the deceased ’employees are required to submit the certificate countersigned by a responsible officer or a well-known person. More often the widow, when approaches the show-called responsible officer/well-known person, are being harassed.

This is inconsistent with acceptance of certificates with self-attestation.

3.         Therefore, the Union has requested to eliminate the provision of counter signature from others duly accepting self attested certificates.

4.         This department has also received representations against revision for submission of these certificates every six months, which had been forwarded to the CPAO for further necessary action. as general references.
