One rank, one pension plan still being worked out

The issue over one-rank-one-pension (OROP) scheme may not be resolved in the near future as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday said the “methodology of calculation” was still being worked out in consultation with the Defence Ministry.

Asserting the government’s commitment towards implementing the OROP, Jaitley said the Finance Ministry was in dialogue with the Defence Ministry on the methodology of calculation, hinting at no immediate resolution of the complicated issue.

About a month ago, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar hinted at the OROP announcement at the first anniversary of the NDA government at a public rally. He had also acknowledged the complexities involved since the decision will have to be in accordance with two rulings from the Armed Forces Tribunal and Supreme Court.

Nearly 25 lakh families would be benefited by OROP scheme. When in the opposition, the BJP supported its implementation to the hilt, but the Congress-led UPA government cited financial constraints in realising the scheme.

As the NDA claims the methodology for OROP calculation was under the works, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is set to meet the ex-servicemen on Saturday to discuss the contentious issue.

For a long time, defence forces and ex-servicemen associations have demanded that uniform pension should be paid to the military personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement and any future enhancement in the rates of pension be automatically passed on to the past pensioners.

AIACEGEO has started Agitation and urged the Finance Ministry to conduct immediate DPCs to grant promotions in the grade of Asst. Commissioner.

Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC), apex policy making body for indirect taxes, is facing the acute shortage of members, accordingly, a former CBEC member, retired in February this year, Shashi Bhushan Singh was appointed as adviser to the Board for a period of three months since March 1 to May 31 on contract basis. In the field formations of CBEC near about 2500 Gr-A posts are lying vacant. The CBEC consists of a chairperson and maximum of six members. At present, Kaushal Srivastava is working as CBEC chairperson and Joy Kumari Chander, as lone member. Srivastava is due to retire in June and Chander will demit her office in this month. As there are not enough members, the existing group is having to take extra load. They are devoting more time to supervise the revenue collection and administration. The indirect revenue body has been working without full members since Kaushal Srivastava was elevated to take over as its chief in November last year. The absence of full members in CBEC has hit in revenue collection including departmental cadre restructuring like 14 posts of Principal Chief Commissioner and 2500 nos. of Gr-A posts are  lying vacant since October 2014, the date of implementation of cadre restructuring. While the revenue counterparts of CBEC, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) are working with the full of seven members after joining of S K Ray as a member on May 10. The CBDT has also six members apart from the Chairperson and CBDT is responsible for framing policy and administrative issues related to direct taxes and the Income Tax department. However, the Finance Ministry has set a foot process of induction of fresh members to the CBEC and the appointments will be made soon, official sources said. But it is not known when the DPCs for 13-14, 14-15 and 15-16 to grant promotions to different Gr-A posts will be completed. Meanwhile AIACEGEO has started Agitation and urged the Finance Ministry to conduct immediate DPCs to grant promotions in the grade of Asst. Commissioner.

Request for Voluntary retirement from persons suffering from disability – DOPT instruction

F.No.25012/1/2015-Estt (A-IV)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel and Training
Establishment (A-IV) Desk
North Block, New Delhi-110 001
Dated : May 19, 2015
Subject: Request for Voluntary retirement from persons suffering from disability — Supreme Court Order in Bhagwan Dass & Anr Vs Punjab State Electricity Board, (2008) 1 SCC 579.
The undersigned is directed say that vide Department of Personnel and Training’s OM No.18017/1/2014-Estt(L) dated the 25 th February, 2015, certain clarifications regarding treatment of leave and absence of disabled Government servants have been issued.
2. Instances have come to notice where Government servants apply for voluntary retirement under various provisions like Rules 38, Rule 48 and 48A of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or Rule 56 of the Fundamental Rule on account of hardships faced by them due to a disability, as they are unaware of the protection provided by the Section 47 of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of justifys and Full Participation) Act, 1995 (PWD Act). Section 47 of the PwD Act, 1995 is reproduced below for reference:
“Non-discrimination in Government Employment — (1) No establishment shall dispense with, or reduce in rank, an employee who acquires a disability during his service.
Provided that, if an employee, after acquiring disability is not suitable for the post he was holding, could be shifted to some other post with the same pay scale and service benefits;
Provided further that if it is not possible to adjust the employee against any post, he may be kept on a supernumerary post until a suitable post is available or he attains the age of superannuation, whichever is earlier. No promotion shall be denied to a person merely on the ground of his disability;
Provided that the appropriate Government may, having regard to the type of work carried on in any establishment, by notification and subject to such conditions, if any, as may be specified in such notification, exempt any establishment from the provisions of this section”.
3. The issue had come up in Bhagwan Dass & Anr Vs Punjab State Electricity Board (2008) 1 SCC 579, decided by the Hon’ble Supreme Court where the employee who had during his service suffered from blindness, had applied for voluntary retirement. The Hon’ble Supreme court has observed that the Petitioner was not aware of any protection that the law afforded him and apparently believed that the blindness would cause him to lose his job, which was the source of livelihood of his family. In those circumstances, it was the duty of the superior officers to explain to him the correct legal position and to tell him about his legal justifys.
4. Keeping in view the provisions of the Section 47 of the PwD Act, 1995 and the above mentioned judgement, it has been decided that whenever a Government servant seeks voluntary retirement citing medical grounds, or when the said notice has been submitted due to a disability, the administrative authorities shall examine as to whether the case is covered under Section 47 of PWD Act, 1995. In case the provisions are applicable, the Government servant shall be advised that he/she has the option of continuing in service with the same pay scale and service benefits.
5. In case a disabled Government servant reconsiders his decision and withdraws the notice for voluntary retirement, his case shall be dealt with under the provisions of the Section 47 read with the Department of Personnel and Training OM dated 25th February, 2015, mentioned above. If however, in spite of being so advised, such Government servant still wishes to take voluntary retirement, the request may be processed as per the applicable rule.
6. All the Ministries and Departments are requested to keep the above in view while processing cases of requests for Voluntary retirement from disabled Government servants.
