Dept. of Expenditure, Central Pension Accounting OfficeOM

No. CPAO/IT&Tech/Revision(7th CPC/19.Vol-III/2017-18/68 dated 14-07-2017

Attention is invited to Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure Resolution No.11-1/2016-IC dated-6th July, 2017 on the above subject whereby it has been decided to revise the existing rates of following allowances for Pensioners:

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

CHQ NEWS



The Hindu Business Line quoting PTI reports that the Cabinet chaired by PM Shri Narendra Modi, yesterday approved the Third PRC report for wage revision of serving Executives in PSEs. We do not doubt the credibility of Hindu or the PTI. The report says that 15% hike in salary is proposed. There, the doubts arise. Because PRC has recommended 15%, 10% and 5% hike depending upon the affordability of PSUs. Hence, we were waiting for the official Press Release.

Normally, after Cabinet Meetings the Press Information Bureau releases Press Communiqués. After yesterday’s meeting also the PIB has given eight Press Releases. In that there is nothing about the PRC Report and Pay hike in CPSEs.

The Procedure:

There are certain procedures for implementing PRC report like; 1) The Cabinet approves it based on the Cabinet Note submitted by Department of Public Enterprises. 2) DPE issues the Office Memorandum based on the Cabinet approval. 3) DOT endorses the DPE OM to BSNL. 4) BSNL Board meets and considers the affordability and then takes a decision.

Even if the Media report is correct, we have to wait for the further procedures.Let us wait and see. Let us not jump into any hasty conclusion. And, after all, it is only for serving Executives. Not for retired people

The Seniors Demonstrate Their empatic protest and anger:


Hundreds of BSNL PENSIONERS from Chennai Telephone District and Chennai Traffic Division, Chennai STR Division and a large number of PENSIONERS from adjacent SSAs from CUDDALORE, PONDICHERRY & VELLORE participated in the MASS DHARNA on 19-7-17 in front of CCA OFFICE, Chennai protesting against the unhelpful attitude of the Pr.CCA Office towards the settlement of the pending problems of pensioners in 78.2% pension revision arrears and also to protest against the disrespectful attitude of the CCA OFFICE Officials, Ethiraj Salai showing towards our leaders and pensioners when they visit CCA office for genuine enquiries.

WHY WE DEMAND CPC BENEFIT, NOT PRC FORMULA?

26/06

 

Our Central Working Committee discussed the pros and cons of demanding pension revision with CPC formula and PRC formula. Then, CWC constituted a committee to study the matter in depth.In the next CWC meeting, the committee’s report was discussed in detail. Again, the matter was considered by last AIC.After all these, we took a conscious decision to demand our Pension Revision with fitment benefits suggested by seventh Central Pay Commission.We want a permanent solution.We can not approach the Cabinet every time with memoranda and wait for Cabinet’s decision. We have been making all efforts to achieve our goal. Still, some comrades are confused. Suddenly some of them started alleging that our CHQ is inactive. A kind of propaganda started in Whatsapp. So, I explained the position as under :…………………………………………………………………….

 

First three CPCs did not recommend any Pension Revision. Why?

Govt. did not include Pension Revision in their Terms of Reference.

Then came the Nakara Case judgeme
