रिजवी समिति की रिपोर्ट को स्वीकार करते हुए प्रदेश सरकार ने पहली जनवरी 2009 से राज्य कर्मचारियों को छठवें वेतन आयोग की भांति वेतन देने का फैसला आज कर ही लिया। यह फैसला मुख्यमंत्री मायावती की अध्यक्षता में हुई मंत्रिमंडल की बैठक में किया गया जिसकी जानकारी उन्होंने स्वयं अपने आवास पर पत्रकारों को दी। फैसला वैसे तो पहली जनवरी 2006 से लागू किया गया है किन्तु 30 नवम्बर 2008 तक के बकाये का 80 प्रतिशत उनके भविष्य निधि खातों में जमा होगा और 20 प्रतिशत का नगद भुगतान तीन किस्तों में किया जायेगा। मुख्यमंत्री के अनुसार इस फैसले से राज्य कर्मचारियों के साथ सहायता प्राप्त शिक्षण संस्थानों व प्राविधिक शिक्षण संस्थाओं के शिक्षक व शिक्षणेत्तर कर्मचारी लाभान्वित होंगे जो कुल कर्मचारियों का 80 प्रतिशत है। पेंशनभोगियों व पारिवारिक पेंशनधारकों को भी केन्द्र की भांति पुनरीक्षित पेंशन दी जायेगी। जिन पेंशन धारकों की आयु 80 साल या इससे अधिक है उनके बकाये का भुगतान चालू वित्तीय वर्ष में ही किया जायेगा। पेंशन सहित नया वेतनमान लागू होने से सरकार पर सालाना 4,674 करोड़ रुपये का अतिरिक्त व्यय भार पड़ेगा जबकि बकाये के भुगतान पर 13,662 करोड़ का भार अनुमानित है। इसकी प्रतिपूर्ति के लिए अनुत्पादक खर्चे कम किये जायेंगे तथा आयोजनेत्तर मद में पांच प्रतिशत की कटौती होगी। इसके अलावा सरकार अपने वित्तीय संसाधन भी बढ़ायेगी। मुख्यमंत्री ने कहा कि उत्तर प्रदेश पहला राज्य है जहां पर छठवें वेतन आयोग की संस्तुतियों के अनुरूप वेतनमान दिया जा रहा है। उन्होंने बताया कि इस रिपेार्ट के लागू होने से कर्मचारियों को कई तरह के फायदे होंगे। मसलन सामूहिक दुर्घटना बीमा योजना की धनराशि जो अभी तक 30, 60 एवं 120 हजार रुपये थी वह बढ़कर एक लाख, दो लाख और चार लाख हो जायेगी। सबसे बड़ा लाभ एक लाख या उससे अधिक आबादी वाले नगर के कार्मिकों का होगा। उन्हें भी प्रतिकर भत्ता दिया जायेगा। ड्यूटी के दौरान दुर्घटना में मृत्यु होने पर अनुग्रह राशि पांच लाख से बढ़ाकर दस लाख तथा आतंकी घटना में मारे जाने पर पन्द्रह लाख कर दी गयी है। इसके साथ दस, बीस एवं तीस साल की सेवा पूरी करने पर कर्मचारियों को क्रमश: पहला दूसरा एवं तीसरा उच्चतर वेतनमान दिया जाएगा। मुख्यमंत्री ने बताया कि केन्द्र ने वर्तमान वेतन श्रृंखला के स्थान पर संशोधित वेतन संरचना लागू करने का फैसला किया है। Continue reading 6th Pay Commission from January in Uttar Pradesh

Pay parity for armed forces a difficult task: Govt

With the armed forces insisting on a pay hike, the government has said it is “very difficult” to maintain a balance in salaries of government servants doing varied jobs.“It is a very difficult exercise. Because it is not just a question of ensuring that people get better salaries. It is also a question of parities…. balances,” Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar said in an interview.

He was responding to a question on what steps the government was contemplating in view of the armed forces’ demand for pay parity.

Chandrasekhar said issues become more complicated when people start feeling that they are being discriminated against by the Pay Commission recommendations.

“It is very difficult when people feel that this chap has got more than me…that feeling is there. So, to maintain that kind of balance…. it is very difficult,” he said.

Cabinet approves pay revision for central public sector enterprises | Snowballing Effect

The Cabinet’s decision to give the go-ahead to a pay revision for the employees of central public sector enterprises (CPSE) was a given the moment the government accepted the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations for central government employees. Just as it is a given that state governments will soon have to follow through with hikes for their employees and then for employees of state public sector enterprises!

[adsense]

The gravy train will then move on to sundry departmental undertakings and autonomous institutions , colleges, schools and so on. Indeed, it is precisely because of the snowballing effect of any hike in government salaries that such decisions need to be taken with a great deal of circumspection – and must go hand-in-hand with higher productivity and greater accountability.

Uttar Pradesh | Govt school staff may get allowances as per Sixth Pay Panel 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.

[adsense]

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.

Its politics!

Despite having inherited economy in a shambles, the Uttar Pradesh government led by Mayawati seems to have favoured 18 lakh employees and teachers over 18 crore people of the state.

The government on Thursday announced that it would implement the new pay scale for 8,00,000 employees, 6,00,000 teachers and 4,00,000 pensioners, which would put heavy burden on the state exchequer.

[adsense]

The new scales as recommended by the 6th Pay Commission would be implemented from January 01, 2009, just a few months before the general elections. As a result the employees and teachers alone would consume over Rs 33,600 crore a year.

Simply put, the new pay structure would touch state annual plan size of Rs 35,000 crore leaving little in the coffer for development and welfare works for the people who have been electing governments with great dreams in their eyes.

The elections would be decisive for Chief Minister Mayawati, who is in a hurry to conquer Delhi. Continue reading Its politics!

Many govt employees still to get pay arrears

Many of the five million government employees are yet to receive the retroactive portion of a salary hike that came into effect from January 2006 after the Union government implemented the Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations.

[adsense]

The employees started getting a new salary from 1 September, but the delay in clearing the so-called arrears is causing some angst among employees, many of whom live in states where elections are being held now.

The Congress party-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government announced an average increase of 21% in the salaries of government employees in August. But only the employees of Union ministries have received their payouts so far.

The government had planned to disburse 40% of the Rs29,373 crore as arrears during 2008-09 and the remaining 60% in 2009-10.”The arrears have been received by the employees working in the Union ministries and the main (Central) secretariat. However, the employees working in field offices and attached organizations or offices of the ministries are yet to get the arrears. There were no such problems at the time of arrear payments for the Fifth Pay Commission,” said an official in the Union ministry of information and broadcasting, who didn’t want to be named.
