Revision of format for OBC Caste Certificate


Revision of format for OBC Caste Certificate

No.36036/2/2013- Estt.(Res.)

Department of Personnel & Training

North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 30th May. 2014
To,
The Chief Secretaries of all the State Governments/Union Territories

Subject: Revision of format for OBC Caste Certificate

Madam/Sir,
The Government of India had issued instructions on 8th September, 1993 vide DoPT OM. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) providing for reservation to Other Backward Classes in the services and posts under the Government of India. The format of the Caste Certificate was prescribed vide Annexure A of the O.M. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) dated 15th November 1993. In the said format, the then Ministry of Welfare’s Resolution No. 12011/68/93-BCC(C) dated 10th September 1993 was mentioned, which contained the list of castes and communities treated as OBC’s till that time. Since then, a large number of castes and communities have been added to the Central List of OBCs through various resolutions of the Ministry of Social Jusiice and Empowerment. The details of the resolutions subsequent to the Resolution dated 10th September 1993 do not find mention in the existing format. The said format also prescribes that the certificate issuing authority should certify that the candidate does not belong to the persons/sections (Creamy Layer) mentioned in Column 3 of the Schedule to the aforesaid OM. dated 8.9.1993.

2. Representations have been received in this Department wherein candidates belonging to OBC Communities have reportedly faced difficulty in getting the benefits of reservation. This is because of the fact that in the caste certificate issued by the concerned district authorities, although the name of the caste/community is mentioned in the certificate, the specific resolution by which the said caste/community has been included in the Central List of OBCs is not indicated.

3. Keeping in view such problems faced by the candidates, this issue was examined in consultation with the National Commission for Backward Classes and it has been decided to revise the existing format of OBC Caste Certificate. A copy of the revised format is enclosed(Anuexure). All the certificate issuing authorities are requested to invariably mention the details of the Resolution (Number and Date) by which the castec/community of the candidate has been included in the Central List of OBCs and also to ensure that he/she does not belong to the persons/sections (Creamy Layer) mentioned in Column 3 of the Schedule to the aforesaid O.M. dated 8.9.1993 as amended from time to time.

4. I am to request that the revised format of the Certificate may please be brought to the notice of authorities under the State Governments/Union Territories who are empowered to issue the Caste Certificate.

Yours faithfully,

Dated: June 3, 2014 

Resp. Shri Arun Jaitely Ji,

I personally and on behalf of the Staff Side of the National Council(JCM) and on behalf of All India Railwaymen’s Federation congratulate on your taking over as Union Finance Minister.

I hope that, under your able leadership, the financial health of our country will achieve greater heights.

As you may be kindly aware, Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) Scheme is in operation in Government of India with the object of promoting harmonious relations and of securing the greatest measure of cooperation between the Central Government, in its capacity as employer and the general body of its employees in matters of common concern, and with the object, further, of increasing the efficiency of the public services. The Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) consists of the Official Side and the Staff Side.

We, as Staff Side, have raised a number of issues with the government, concerning the employees of the Government of India. Two of these issues are agitating the minds of the Government employees and need urgent resolution. These relate to Merger of Dearness Allowance with Pay and removal of the issue relating to Senior Promotee employees drawing less pay than the Junior Direct Recruit employee. Since these issues need decision at the level of Ministry of Finance. I am enclosing brief notes on the same for your kind perusal.

We are hopeful that, you will be kind enough to have them examined in a positive-manner

I would also be grateful, if you could spare some time from your busy schedule between 10th and 12th ” June, 2014, so that I may call on you to meet you in person.

With regards!

Yours sincerely,

End: As above
MERGER OF DA WITH PAY

The wage revision of the Central Government employees is carried out through the Central Pay Commissions which, considering the magnitude of employees is a time consuming process. The 7 Central Pay Commission (CPC) set up by the Government will require a reasonable time frame to go into the matter judiciously especially because the implementation of 6m CPC recommendations have given rise to large number of issues and cadre related grievances.

During the past, the methodology adopted for compensating the erosion in the real value of wages due to price rise as reflected in high rate of DA to Government employees before the date of the submission of Pay Commission Report and its acceptance by the Government, had always been though the mechanism of merger of a portion of DA with Pay. The merger of DA to partially compensate the erosion in the real wages was first done in pursuance of the Gadgil Committee in the post 2nd Pay Commission period. The 3 CPC had recommended such merger of the DA when it crossed 36%, The Government agreed to merge 60% and later the whole of the DA before the 4°’ CPC was set up. The 501 CPC merged 98% of DA with pay. The 51h CPC had also recommended that the DA must be merged with pay and treated as pay for computing all allowances as and when the percentage of Dearness compensation exceeds 50%. Accordingly even before the setting up of the 6°’ CPC the DA to the extent of 50% was merged with pay.

Presently, the factual position is that as on 1.1.2014, the Dearness compensation is 100% and will exceed the same with effect from 1.7.2014. Since the 7°’ CPC has been set up and one of the issues to be dealt with by the CPC would relate to revision in the existing reference base of price index, it becomes all the more necessary that the Government takes steps to merge at least 50% of DA with pay to compensate the erosion of the real value of wages immediately.

ISSUE RELATING TO SENIOR PROMOTEE EMPLOYEES DRAWING LESS PAY THAN THE JUNIOR DIRECT RECRUIT EMPLOYEES

The main issue in this case is that the 6th CPC for the first time recommended specific entry level pay for Direct Recruits (DRs). This resulted in employees who were appointed in service prior to the DRs and also got promoted earlier get less pay as compared to their counterparts recruited directly and who joined after 1.1.2006. It has always been the case that on promotion, the pay of a promoted employee is never fixed at less than the entry level of pay of that post as admissible to a direct recruit.

Consequent upon implementation of the recommendations of the 6th CPC, in respect of pay scales of various categories of staff, there are certain situations where the senior who were promoted before 01.01.2006 are getting lesser pay than their juniors promoted after 01.01.2006, on fixation of their pay w.e.f. 01.01.2006. This, being a serious anomaly, has been raised by us in the National Anomalies Committee for redressal thereof.

The consensus decision in the National Anomaly Committee was that the Staff Side as well as the Official Side agreed that wherever there is a provision of direct recruitment in the Recruitment Rules, pay on promotion would be fixed at the prescribed minimum of the Entry Pay as provided for the Direct Entrants in the Revised Pay Rules, irrespective of the fact whether direct recruitment has actually taken place or not. However to our distress it was later on learnt that the Government went back on this mutually agreed solemn resolution and did not issue any Order in this regard. This being a serious issue has resulted in discontentment prevailing among the seniors who are drawing less pay than is legitimately due to them.

A very simple solution to this issue is that orders may be issued to the effect that the pay on promotion w.e.f. 01.01.2006 would not be fixed less than at the prescribed minimum of the Entry Pay as provided for the Direct Entrants in the Revised Pay Rules, to eliminate this unfairness.

Central Government Officers may have to work 6 days a week


Central Government Officers may have to work 6 days a week

New Delhi: Speculation is rife in various union ministries that the new government under Narendra Modi may revert back to the six-days a week workdays in central government offices after about three decades.

Although there is no move yet by the government in this regard the issue is subject of much discussion among the bureaucrats. It was former PM Rajiv Gandhi who, in the mid-1980s, had decided to go in for the five-day week.

The aim at that time was to promote efficiency since it gave the bureaucrats much-needed rest over the weekend on the assumption that the work-culture would improve during week-days.

The closure of Government offices on Saturdays also resulted in saving of electricity and other expenses of the Centre. But despite the current five-day week, some of the ministers even in the previous UPA-2 government were known to attend office on Saturdays and attend to files and other important work.

Financial upgradation in the next promotional grade Hierarchy under MACP

Sub:- Financial upgradation in the next promotional grade Hierarchy under MACP

Ref:- Your letter No. P-l3025/11/2014-AT dated 4.4.2014
Your letter No. P-26012/5/2011-AT dated 19.8.2013

 [See also: Grant of MACP on Promotional Hierarchy only to petitioner on personal basis not the treated as a precedent ]

Dear Sir,

You have granted financial upgradation to Shri Rajpal in the Promotional hierarchy under MACP in compliance of direction of Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal Chandigarh Bench dated 31.5.2011 in O.A. No. 1038/CH/2010 Rajpal Vs UOI & Others.

You have treated it as a judgment in personum and not a judgment in rem so far as other employees covered under MACP are concerned.

Your plea is that SLP No. 7967/2013 filed by the Department / Government against the judgment of Hon’ble High Court Chandigarh in C W P No.l938/2011 was discussed on technical grounds and not on merit in this case. The ground wasinsufficient explanation given to condone the delay in refilling the SLP.

In this connection I may bring to your kind notice that Supreme Court in catina ofcases (i. e. G.C. Ghosh Vs UoI [(1992) 19 ATC 94 SC] dated 20.7.98) has ruled that decision taken in one specific case either by the judiciary or the Government should be applied to all identical cases (i.e similarly circumstanced) without forcing other employees to approach the Court of law for identical remedy or relief.

Since whether MACP should be granted to next promotional hierarchy or next grade pay hierarchy is a common issue applicable to all Government employees the decision in the case of Rajpal should be made applicable to all Government employees who are granted financial upgradation under MACP.

Since you have already granted MACP in next promotional hierarchy to Rajpal it has been absolute and has to be implemented in the case of all Government employees who are similarly placed under MACP.

I, therefore, request you to reconsider and suitably modify the MACP Scheme providing for financial upgradation in the promotional hierarchy.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

Union Finance Minister Holds Pre-Budget Consultation Meeting With the Representatives of Trade Union Groups

Union Finance Minister Holds Pre-Budget Consultation Meeting With the Representatives of Trade Union Groups; Skill Development to be Given Priority for Generating Employment Oppurtunities.

The Union Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley said that skill development would be given priority so that more and more trained workers join the Indian economy. He said that the Government will give due consideration to the Ten Point Joint Charter of Demands given by the Central Trade Unions while formulating the budgetary proposals. The Finance Minister was speaking here today while interacting with the representatives of the Central Trade Unions as part of his Pre-Budget Consultation meetings.

Along with the Finance Minister, the meeting was attended by Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Shri Ratan P. Watal, Expenditure Secretary, Shri Rajiv Takru, Revenue Secretary, Smt. Gauri Kumar, Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment and senior officers of the Ministry of Finance among others.

The participating Central Trade Unions gave a joint memorandum to the Finance Minister for his consideration and positive response. Some of the specific proposals contained there in are given below:

Take effective measures to arrest the spiraling price rise and to contain inflation; Ban speculative forward trading in commodities; universalize and strengthen the Public Distribution System(PDS); ensure proper check on hoarding; rationalize, with a view to reduce the burden on people, the tax/duty/cess on petroleum products.

Massive investment in the infrastructure in order to stimulate the economy for job creation. Public Sector should take the leading role in this regard. The plan and non-plan expenditure should be increased in the budget to stimulate jobs creation and guarantee consistent income to people.

Minimum wage linked to Consumer Price Index (CPI) must be guaranteed to all workers, taking into consideration the recommendations of the 15th Indian Labour Conference . It should not be less than Rs. 15,000/- p.m.

FDI should not be allowed in crucial sectors like defence production, telecommunications, railways, financial sector, retail trade, education, health and media.

The Public Sector Units (PSUs) played a crucial role during the year of severe contraction of private capital investment immediately following the outbreak of global financial crisis. PSUs should be strengthened and expanded. Disinvestment of shares of profit making public sector units should be stopped forthwith. 

Budgetary support should be given for revival of potentially viable sick CPSUs.

In view of huge job losses and mounting unemployment problem, the ban on recruitment in Government departments, PSUs and autonomous institutions (including recent Finance Ministry’s instruction to abolish those posts not filled for one year) should be lifted as recommended by 43rd Session of Indian Labour Conference. Condition of surrender of posts in government departments and PSUs should be scrapped and new posts be created keeping in view the new work and increased workload.

Proper allocation of funds be made for interim relief and 7th Pay Commission.

The scope of MGNREGA be extended to agriculture operations and employment for minimum period of 200 days with guaranteed statutory wage be provided, as unanimously recommended by 43rd Session of 
Indian Labour Conference.

The massive workforce engaged in ICDS, Mid Day Meal Scheme, Vidya volunteers, guest teachers, Siksha Mitra, the workers engaged in the Accredited Social Health Activities (ASHA) and other schemes be regularized. No to privatization of centrally funded schemes. Universalization of ICDS be done as per Supreme Court directions by making adequate budgetary allocations.

Steps be taken for removal of all restrictive provisions based on poverty line in respect of eligibility coverage of the schemes under the Unorganized Workers Social Security Act 2008 and allocation of adequate resources for the National Fund for Unorganised Workers to provide for social security to all unorganised workers including the contract/casual and migrant workers in line with the recommendations of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Labour and also the 43rd Session of Indian Labour Conference. The word BPL redefined and redistributed at the earliest.

Remunerative prices should be ensured for agricultural produce and Government investment, public investment in agriculture sector must be substantially augmented as a proportion of GDP and total budgetary expenditure. It should also be ensured that benefits of the increase reach the small, marginal and medium cultivators only.

Budgetary provision should be made for providing essential services including housing, public transport, sanitation, water, schools, crèche, health care etc, to workers in the new emerging industrial areas. Working women’s Hostels should be set-up where there is a concentration of women workers.

Requisite budgetary support for addressing crisis in traditional sectors like jute, textiles, plantation, handloom, carpet and coir etc.

Budgetary provision for elementary education should be increased, particularly in the context of the implementation of the ‘Right to Education’ as this is the most effective tool to combat child labour.

The system of computation of Consumer Price Index (CPI) should be reviewed as the present index is causing heavy financial loss to the workers.

Income tax exemption ceiling for the salaried persons should be raised to Rs. 5.00 lakh per annum and fringe benefits like housing, medical and educational facilities and running allowances should be exempted from income tax net in totality.

Threshold limit of 20 employees in EPF Scheme be brought down to 10 as recommended by CBT-EPF. Pension benefits under the EPS unilaterally withdrawn by the Government should be restored. Government and employers contribution be increased to allow sustainability of Employees Pension Scheme and for provision of minimum pension of Rs. 3000/- p.m.

New Pension Scheme be withdrawn and newly recruited employees of Central And State Governments on or after 1.1.2004 be covered under Old Pension Scheme;

Demand for Dearness Allowance merger by Central Government and PSU employees be accepted and adequate allocation of fund for this be made in the budget.

All interests and social security of the domestic workers to be statutorily protected on the lines of ILO Convention on domestic workers.

The Cess management of the construction workers is the responsibility of the Finance Ministry under the Act and the several irregularities found in collection of cess be rectified as well as their proper utilization must be ensured.

In regard to resource mobilization, the Trade Unions have emphasized on the following:

A progressive taxation system should be put in place to ensure taxing the rich and the affluent sections who have the capacity to pay at a higher degree. The corporate service sector, traders, wholesale business, private hospitals and institutions etc should be brought under broader and higher tax net. Increase taxes on luxury goods and reduce indirect taxes on essential commodities.

Concrete steps must be taken to recover huge accumulated unpaid tax arrears which has already crossed more than Rs. 5.00 lakh crore on direct and corporate tax account alone, and has been increasing at a geometric proportion. Such huge tax evasion over and above the liberal tax concessions already given in the last two budgets should not be allowed to continue.

We welcome the constitution of SIT for black money and urge for speedy action.

Effective measures should be taken to unearth huge accumulation of black money in the economy including the huge unaccounted money in tax heavens abroad and within the country. Provisions be made to bring back the illicit flows from India which are at present more than twice the current external debt of US $ 230 billion. This money should be directed towards providing social security.

Concrete measures be expedited for recovering the NPAs of the banking system from the willfully defaulting corporate and business houses. By making provision in Banking Regulations Act, CMDs and executives to be made accountable for creation of NPAs.

Tax on long term capital gains to be introduced, so also higher taxes on the security transactions to be levied.

The rate of wealth tax, corporate tax, gift tax etc to be expanded and enhanced.

ITES, outsourcing sector, educational institutions and health services etc run on commercial basis should be brought under the Service Tax net.

Small saving instruments under postal and other agencies be encouraged by incentivizing commission agents of these scheme.

Other suggestions include holding of post budget consultations with the representatives of Central Trade Unions, need for directional change in policies such as stopping of mindless deregulation, encourage entrepreneurship to tackle problem of unemployment, more spending on education and skill development, removal of ceiling on gratuity, bonus and pension etc of workers and following the principle of “Same work, same wages” among others.
