UP Govt school Employees may get allowances
UTTAR PRADESH Govt school Employees may get allowances as per Sixth Pay Report :
In a pre-election bonanza to 16 lakh employees in government schools, the government’s pay parity committee has advised payment of allowances as per the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations.
This will include the city compensatory allowance and house rent allowance and the revised pay scale will come into force from December 1. This is the first time that state employees will be paid allowances on the Central scale, causing an annual burden of Rs 1,500 crore on the state exchequer.
The committee, headed by SAT Rizvi, was constituted in August by the state government to suggest measures for the implementation of the pay panel recommendations. It was to submit its report within three months.
Alok Ranjan, principal secretary of urban development and a member of the committee, said the committee has finalised its report, which will be presented to Chief Minister Mayawati when she returns from her campaign tour.
The committee has, however, made no recommendations regarding arrears and pension, which is likely to be announced during the presentation of the budget in February.
The arrears and pensions for the period of January 2006 to November 2008 would entail a one-time additional expenditure of Rs 14,775 crore. The salary arrears amount to Rs 11,051 crore and Rs 3,724 crore for pension.
The implementation will be done with retrospective effect from January 1, 2006. The additional expenditure will be Rs 5,189 crore annually, which includes Rs 3,789 crore on account of salary and Rs 1,400 crore for pension.
Welfare and development schemes are expected to suffer in consequence.
As an immediate measure, the state government has decided to cut down non-plan expenditure by five per cent, ensure effective measures to check tax evasion and mobilise additional resources.
In August, Mayawati had announced the government’s in-principle decision to implement the sixth pay panel recommendations.
But the new pay scale was to contain only the revised salary and dearness allowance. The change of stance came following strong protest by the employees’ unions.

PSU EMPLOYEES PAY HIKES
PSU EMPLOYEES PAY HIKES - CABINATE APPROVED
A government panel today recommended a hefty pay hike for over 2.5 lakh officers in central PSUs, whose heads may take home a salary of up to Rs 1 lakh a month, along with liberal benefits such as stock options and productivity rewards. The new wage structure that represents a 25 to 45 per cent hike also offers Employees Stock Option Scheme (ESOP), variable pay and risk rewards and will be implemented retrospectively from January 1, 2007.
"The government will take a view on the recommendations by December 31,"said Minister for Heavy Industry Santosh Mohan Dev after receiving the report of the Second Pay Revision Committee headed by former Supreme Court judge Jagannadha Rao. Commenting on the recommendations, PSU chamber SCOPE Director General S M Diwan said: "The benefits to the executives would range from 25 to 45 per cent depending upon the profitability of their enterprise and their seniority.
" Under the proposed dispensation, the CPSEs will be divided into five categories depending upon the turnover, manpower and geographical spread and the CMDs in the top category will draw a fixed basic salary of Rs 1 lakh per month as against Rs 31,500 at the maximum grade currently. The basic pay of CMDs of the CPSEs falling in different categories will range from Rs 55,000 to Rs 1 lakh per month.
Expressing the possibility of further improving upon the recommendations of the second pay panel, Dev said, "The proposals are aimed at stopping the exodus of CPSE employees to the private sector." CPSEs employee around 16 lakh people, a government official said, adding that the pay structure of other staff members will be worked out after the seventh round of negotiations with workmen representatives.

The previous time frame for assured career progression was 9, 18 and 27 years.An official release here on Thursday stated that the State government had reconsidered its decision and decided to restore the original time frame of 9, 18 and 27 years for giving selection scale of salary under assured career progression to the employees. The release pointed out that the Central government was still giving the facility on completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of service.The release said the State government had also decided to carry out the revised deduction from the salary of employees staying in government accommodation from September 1 instead of January 1 this year. The salary hike for the employees has been brought into effect from September 1. The State government had earlier decided to make the deduction of housing allowance from January 1 because the employees were to be paid the salary arrears from that date. The release said difference for the period between January 1 and August 31 would not be charged from the employees.In another decision benefiting women employees, the State government has enhanced the maternity leave — sanctioned to them twice during their service period — from 135 days to 180 days. The decision will be applicable to the employees presently availing themselves of the leave as well.The release said the Rajasthan Service Rules would be amended shortly for implementing these decisions.

Departmental Promotion Committee
The regular promotions of the government employees are generally
decided on the basis of recommendations made by the Departmental
Promotion Committees. The Departmental Promotion Committees
are constituted to judge the suitability of officers for -
(a) promotions to “Selection” as well as "Non-selection" posts
(b) assessment of the work and conduct of probationers for the
purpose of determining their suitability for retention in service or
their discharge from it or extending their probation and subsequent
confirmation if found suitable for retention in service. Guidelines for
DPCs.The following guidelines are laid down to regulate the assessment
of suitability of candidates by DPCs:
While merit has to be recognised and rewarded, advancement in an
officer's career should not be regarded as a matter of course,
but should be earned by dint of hard work, good conduct and
result-oriented performance as reflected in the annual confidential
reports and based on strict and rigorous selection process.
Confidential Reports are the basic inputs on the basis of which
assessment is to be made by each DPC. The evaluation of CRs
should be fair, just and non- discriminatory. Hence, the DPC
should assess the suitability of the employees for promotion on
the basis of their Service Records and with particular reference to the
CRs for five preceding years irrespective of the qualifying service
prescribed in the Service/Recruitment Rules.
(If more than one CR has been written for a particular year,
all the CRs for the relevant years shall be considered together
as the CR for one year).
Where one or more CRs have not been written for any reason during
the relevant period, the DPC should consider the CRs of the years
preceding the period in question and if in any case even these
are not available, the DPC should take the CRs of the lower grade
into account to complete the number of CRs required to be considered
as per above para. If this is also not possible, all the available
CRs should be taken into account. Principles to be observed for
preparation of panel In case of ‘selection’ (merit) promotion,
the hitherto existing distinction in the nomenclature
(‘selected by merit’ and ‘selection-cum-seniority) is dispensed
with and the mode of promotion in all such cases is rechristened as
The element of selectivity (higher or lower) shall be determined with
reference to the relevant benchmark (“Very Good” or “Good”)
prescribed for promotion.
The DPC shall determine the merit of those being assessed for
promotion with reference to the prescribed benchmark and accordingly
grade the officers as ‘fit’ or ‘unfit’ only. Only those who are graded ‘fit’
(i.e. who meet the prescribed benchmark) by the DPC shall be
included and arranged in the select panel in order of their inter-se
seniority in the feeder grade.
Those officers who are graded ‘unfit’ (in terms of the prescribed
benchmark) by the DPC shall not be included in the select panel.
Thus, there shall be no supersession in promotion among those
who are graded ‘fit’ (in terms of the prescribed benchmark)
by the DPC
Procedure to be followed by DPC in respect of
government servants under cloud
At the time of consideration of the cases of government
servants for promotion, details of government servants in the
consideration zone for promotion falling under the following
categories should be specifically brought to the notice of the
Departmental Promotion Committee:
i. Government servants under suspension;
ii. Government servants in respect of whom a charge-sheet
has been issued and the disciplinary proceedings are pending;
iii. Government servants in respect of whom prosecution for
a criminal charge is pending.
The DPC shall assess the suitability of the government servants
coming within the purview of the circumstances mentioned above
along with other eligible candidates without taking into consideration
the disciplinary case/ criminal prosecution pending. The assessment
of the DPC, including “Unfit for Promotion”, will be kept in a sealed
cover. The same procedure outlined in the above para will be
followed by the subsequent Departmental Promotion Committees
convened till the disciplinary case/criminal prosecution against
the government servant concerned is concluded. It has been
decided that the “Sealed Cover Procedure” prescribed in the
Department of Personnel and Training,
OM No. 22011/4/91-Estt.(A) dated 14.9.1992referred to above
may be followed at the time of consideration for adhoc promotion
also in the case of government servants -
(i) who are under suspension;
(ii) in respect of whom a charge-sheet has been issued and the
disciplinary proceedings are pending; and
(iii) in respect of whom prosecution for a criminal charge is pending
Processing of recommendations of DPC
Govt. of India OM No. 35034/7/97-Estt.(D) dated 08.02.2002.
DP&T OM No. 22011/4/91-Estt.(A) dated 14.9.92.
Govt of India Pers. & Trg. OM No. 28036/2/98-Estt.(D) dated 23.2.99.
The recommendations of the DPC are advisory in nature and should be
duly approved by the appointing authority. A clearance from the
Vigilance Section of the Office/Department should also be obtained
before making actual promotion or confirmation of officer approved
by DPC to ensure that no disciplinary proceedings are pending against
the officer concerned. Promotion should be made strictly in the order
in which the names of the officers appear in the panel.
Refusal of promotion
When a government employee does not want to accept an offer of
promotion, he may make a written request to that effect and the
same will be considered by the appointing authority. If the reasons
adduced for refusal of promotion are acceptable to the appointing
authority, the next person in the select list may be promoted.
However, since it may not be administratively possible or desirable
to offer appointment to the persons who initially refused promotion,
on every occasion on which a vacancy arises, during the period of
validity of the panel, no fresh offer of appointment on promotion
shall be made in such cases for a period of one year from the date of
refusal of first promotion or till a next vacancy arises, whichever is later.
On the eventual promotion to the higher grade, such government
servant will lose seniority vis-a-vis his juniors promoted to the
higher grade earlier irrespective of the fact whether the posts in
question are filled by selection or otherwise. The above mentioned
policy will not apply where ad hoc promotions against short-term
vacancies are refused. In cases where the reasons adduced by the
officer for his refusal for promotion are not acceptable, the appointing
authority should enforce the promotion of the officer and in case the
officer still refuses to be promoted, then even disciplinary action can be
taken against him for refusing to obey the orders of the
Validity of a panel
The panel for promotion drawn up by DPC for 'selection' posts would
normally be valid for one year. It should cease to be in force on the
expiry of a period of one year or when a fresh panel is prepared,
whichever is earlier.
The date of commencement of the validity of panel will be the date on
which the DPC meets. In case the DPC meets on more than one day,
the last date of the meeting would be the date of commencement of
the validity of the panel. In case the panel requires, partially or wholly,
the approval of the Commission, the date of validity of panel would be
the date (of Commission's letter) communicating their approval to the
panel. It is important to ensure that the Commission's approval to the
panel is obtained, where necessary, with the least possible delay.
