Family pension under NPS

STARRED QUESTION NO-350
ANSWERED ON-18.02.2014

350 . SHRI PRABHAT JHA

Will the Minister of FINANCE be pleased to state:

(a) the details of cases of family pension sanctioned, so far, under the New Pension Scheme (NPS) to the families of deceased Central Government employees;

(b) whether family pension at the rate of old pension scheme to these family members of deceased employees has been stopped after coming into force of the New Pension Scheme;

(c) if not, the fate of those who have been receiving family pension under NPS at the rate of old pension scheme;

(d) whether some of the deceased employees have left behind them only few thousands rupees as Contributory Pension Fund (CPF) with the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL); and

(e) if so, how Government would pay them family pension from their CPF?

ANSWER
FINANCE MINISTER
(SHRI P. CHIDAMBARAM )

(a) to (e): A Statement is laid on the Table of the House.

Statement of The Central Government Regarding “Family Pension Under NPS” Raised By Shri Prabhat Jha

(a): Central Pension Accounting Office has informed that as per its records there are 1900 cases of family pension and 20 cases of disability pension under National Pension System (NPS).

(b) and (c): The pension of the Government servants (except in the Armed Forces) appointed on or after 01-01-2004 is regulated by the NPS which is a defined contribution pension system. Employees appointed in the service of Central Government prior to this date are not covered by NPS. However, even after the introduction of NPS, the benefit of family pension is available to the families of the deceased Central Government employees covered under the NPS. Hence, family pension, at the rate of old pension scheme, to family members of deceased employees, who were in the service of the Central Government on or after 01-01-2004, is not denied or affected due to the implementation of NPS, as per the Office Memorandum (OM) No. 38/41/06/P&PW(A) dated 05-05-2009 of the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions. This OM envisages payment of various benefits on death/discharge of a Government employee after adjustment of the monthly annuitised pension from the accumulated funds in the NPS account of the employee.

(d) and (e): National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) has informed that a few deceased employees, who passed away within a short span after joining NPS, had minimal accumulated pension wealth in their NPS accounts. However, as stated in reply to parts (b) and (c) above, the family members of the deceased employees are covered by the family pension.

Subject: To fix timeline for redressal of grievances

Sir/Madam,

The Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare is maintaining Centralized Pension Grievances Redress and Monitoring System (CPENGRAMS) in the portal being maintained and named as “Pensioners’ Portal”. The pending grievances are constantly reviewed by the Department to ensure its redressal within a time frame. It has been found by the department that grievances are lying pending for unduly long periods and the pensioner concerned is suffering. To obviate the delays in the grievance redressal it has been found necessary to re-emphasize the guidelines issued by Administrative Reforms And Public Grievances vide its OM No.K.15011/1/2006-PG dated 22.5.2006, which are as follows:

i) Minimum courtesy of acknowledging a receipt of the complaint may be done within a period of three days of the receipt of the grievances in case of receipt of dak physically and same day in case if it is an online application;

ii) Grievances may be redressed within a maximum period of two months of its receipt. Cases where it is not possible to give an immediate reply, an interim reply should be given to the applicant;

iii) Any request made by a pensioner which does not fall under the ambit of pension policy would be a demand and may be tackled accordingly as they do not form part of the approved policy of the government;

iv) Pending vigilance or court cases cannot be included in grievances as they are dependant on the finalization of the cases. Hence the pensioner may be informed of the same and these grievances tackled accordingly.

You are requested to send a copy of the instructions issued to fix the timeline for early redressal of grievances to your subordinate organization also.

In case any further clarification or assistance is required please do let us know so that together we are able to dispose the pending grievances within the prescribed time limit of two months.

Yours faithfully,
(Tripti P. Ghosh)

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Guidelines for issue of medicines to CGHS beneficiaries from CGHS Wellness Centres — reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to This Ministry’s 0.M No. S 11011/8/99- CGHS (P) dated 13.10.1999 vide which CMO In-charge of CGHS dispensaries have been permitted to issue medicines for a maximum period of 3 (three) months at a time against a valid prescription of Government specialist to CGHS beneficiaries suffering from chronic illness like diabetes, tuberculosis, heart ailment, hypertension, I.H.D, epilepsy, etc.

2. This Ministry has been receiving representations from beneficiaries regarding the requirement of fresh consultation with Government specialist every three months for re¬issue of the prescribed medicines. Requests have been received from beneficiaries to relax this condition as getting an appointment with Government specialists is difficult, especially for the old aged and physically challenged beneficiaries suffering from chronic diseases and requiring constant medication.

3. Acknowledging the difficulties being faced by the beneficiaries in obtaining prescription of Government specialist every three months, it has been decided to clarify that the CMO In-charge of CGHS WelIness Centres are competent to revalidate the prescription on the request of patient, after professionally satisfying himself/herself about the medical condition of the patient and repeat the medicines prescribed by Government specialist to beneficiaries for another three months subject to the following conditions:

a) Medicines shall be issued against a valid original prescription from a Government specialist advising the same.
b) CMO I/c may issue the medicines prescribed by a Government specialist for three months at a time during the entire treatment period indicated clearly (e.g,, six months/ one year) on the prescription.

c) CMO I/c may examine and advise the patient on whether to continue with the same medicines as prescribed by the Government specialist or may refer him to the Government specialist for fresh consultation, if required medically.

d) CGHS GDMOs of the Wellness Centre may prescribe routine diagnostic tests to the patients before their follow up consultation with the specialist. They should however, use discretion and not to advice specialized tests/ investigations as they can only be advised by the specialists, wherever required.

e) Beneficiaries will be issued medicines for maximum three months period at a time. In such cases, where the advice of specialist is only for three months arid the CMO I/c is satisfied after professional examination that the same medicines are required to be continued for treatment, the prescription may be revalidated and medicines can be issued for another 3 (three) months, i.e,, to a total of 6 (six) months. After six months, the beneficiaries will have to consult the Government specialist and obtain fresh prescription or get the prescription revalidated from the Government specialist in cases where the treatment period is not clearly indicated on the prescription.

4. This issues with the approval of Additional Secretary and Director General, CGHS.

Central government employees to be prohibited access to social media at work: NDTV

Central government employees to be prohibited access to social media at work: NDTV

The central government Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that it will issue an advisory prohibiting government employees from accessing social networking websites through officials systems and networks.

A division bench of Acting Chief Justice B.D. Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul asked the centre to immediately issue an advisory prohibiting public servants, who already have an official e-mail account, from using external services.

The bench took into note the submissions of Additional Solicitor General Rajeeve Mehra that 4.5 lakh government employees have been allotted official email accounts and they have started using them.

Mehra further submitted that there would be requirement of five million such account holders and setting up of such e-mail accounts would require some time and infrastructure.

“You (centre) will issue an advisory that those people who have been given official e-mail accounts (nic.in) will immediately use that e-mail ids and to increase the number of employees on official accounts,” the bench said.

The court told the government that the server pertaining to the official e-mail account should be “housed in India itself”.

It also asked the information and technology department to process a draft e-mail policy proposal for the committee of secretaries within two weeks, and the committee to approve the e-mail policy and another policy “on acceptable use of IT resources of the government of India” within two weeks after that.

Filing an affidavit, the centre told the high court that it has proposed a national e-mail policy for official communication of government employees, saying the objective of the policy was to ensure “secure access and usage of data” by them.

In an affidavit filed in the high court, the department of electronics and information technology said the use of e-mail accounts of external service providers will be “prohibited for official communication” by government employees.

Earlier, the bench had asked the central government to bring in an e-mail policy for government officials in consonance with the Public Records Act in order to bar transfer of data to a server outside the country.

The public interest litigation (PIL) filed by former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader K.N. Govindacharya, said the use of e-mail accounts whose servers were outside India and transfer of the nation’s official data using this medium violated the Public Records Act.

The central government in its affidavit also said it has proposed another policy “on acceptable use of IT resources of the government of India” that lays down the guidelines with respect to use of all IT resources.

The court will hear the case April 30.

CASE  FOR UPGRADATION OF  GRADE PAY OF LDC TO 2400 FILED BEFORE CAT
ALL INDIA ASSOCIATION OF ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF (NON GAZETTED) has filed a case before CAT for upgradation of Grade Pay of LDC to 2400. In this regard a letter of  Shri. TKR.Pillai ,General Secretary, published in its blog is given below..

Dear friends,

A case for the upgradation of the grade pay of LDC to Rs. 2400 has been filed before the CAT Jabalpur by this Association. Since UDC is a promotion post of LDC, the grade pay of the UDC would automatically go up. However, this Association is thinking to file a separate case for granting of Rs. 4200/ Grade pay to UDCs. The case of Steno Grade III (Rs. 2400 GP) is similar to UDC and as such a mention of their name has also been made in the table submitted.

Copy of the case filed will be published in this web site in an appropriate time.

DOPT directs the Ministries to effect the necessary amendments in Recruitment Rules

DOPT directs the Ministries to effect the necessary amendments in Recruitment Rules
No.AB.14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions

Dated :the March 25, 2014

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Amendment of Recruitment Rules/Service Rules -regarding.

The UPSC has undertaken an analysis with respect to the Ministries/Departments from whom RR proposals have either rarely been received or not received at all in the Commission during the last three years. From the aforesaid analysis the following conclusions have been drawn by UPSC:

i) There are cases where the Ministries were granted approval by the Commission for filling up the post as a one-time measure, pending finalization of recruitment rules. However, the Ministries have not framed the recruitment rules of such posts as a follow up to the same.

ii) Recruitment Rules are not being amended on a regular basis (every five years) as required as per the norms of DoPT.

iii) Instances have been noticed where the regular posts are filled up by the Ministries/Departments themselves without consulting the Commission, by appointing consultant or by making ad-hoc appointments.

iv) Ministries/Departments have not specified the posts which are exempted from consultation with the U.P.S.C. or taken out of the purview of the U.P.S.C.

2. DoPT instructions contained in O.M. No. 39021/5/83-Estt. (B) dated 9th July, 1985 and OM No. AB 14017/79/2006-Estt.(RR) dated 6th September, 2007 provide that where no Recruitment Rules exist or where the existing Recruitment Rules are repealed as per the prescribed procedure, the option of approaching the UPSC for suggesting one time method for recruitment to the post would be available. Accordingly, Ministries/Departments are advised to ensure that no ad-hoc appointment should be made in the absence of recruitment rules. In case there are overriding compulsions for filling up any Group A or Group B post in the absence of Recruitment Rules, they should make a reference to the UPSC for deciding the mode of recruitment to fill up the post on regular basis.

3. DoPT guidelines on framing/amendment/ Relaxation of Recruitment Rules dated 31.12.2010 vide Para 3.1.5 provide that the Recruitment Rules should be reviewed once in 5 years with a view to effecting such change as are necessary to bring them in conformity with the changed position, including additions to or reductions in the strength of the lower and higher level posts. Further, consequent upon the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations, DoPT vide OM dated 24.3.2009 issued instructions to all the Ministries/Departments to initiate action to amend the existing Service Rules/Recruitment Rules in view of the revised pay structure/merger of pre-revised pay scales/up-gradation etc.

UPSC has observed that many Ministries/Departments are not adhering to these instructions and requisitions are being received from them to operate recruitment rules notified even twenty five years ago. Ministries/Departments are, therefore, once again directed to effect necessary amendments to the Recruitment Rules/Service Rules after following the due procedure of furnishing proposals to the Department of Personnel & Training and the UPSC.

4. Ministries/Departments need to ensure that appointment to all posts are effected as per the provisions in the Recruitment Rules which are statutory in nature and adhere to these instructions scrupulously.

DA Arrears Calculator

“…..After the order on the 10% DA is received, the corresponding DA value will be paid as arrears for the first two months and then it will paid along with the month’s salary. Similarly, every time when the DA touches 50%, some allowances can increase up to 25%. We have already got the benefits of the 50% DA increase. Now, as it has reached 100%, a formal announcement is expected to come out soon. Everyone can easily calculate the benefits that we’ll get from a 10% increase. However, for your convenience,  a calculator has been provided to help you to find out how much you will get as two month’s arrears and the other benefits that you will get due to the DA increase…”

Further as the pension paying authority for BSNI. officials is DoT & it is also the borrower, it has been decided by BSNL management that Pension Contribution for BSNL officials working in DoT units/DoT shall not be transferred to DoT.

However, a schedule showing the list of employees posted to DoT units/DoT with their total Pension Contribution which has been paid by BSNL for the period of their deputation shall be submitted to DoT unit/DoT to which Pension Contribution is to be paid under acknowledgement. Requisite entry in the service book of the official may also be made to this effect.

Leave Salary Contribution shall also be claimed from the DoT/DoT units in respect of BSNL officials on deputation in DoT/DoT units from the date of their deputation. Henceforth monthly claim shall be made in this respect.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
