Announce the Dearness Allowance from January 2015: BPMS to FM

The BPMS has requested Finance Minister to declare the Dearness Allowance from January 2015. Since this federation is affiliated to BMS which is a trade union wing of Bharatiya Janata Party, bapus believe, its prayer would be answered positively by the central government.

BPMS in its letter dated 1.4.2015, invited the attention of the Finance Minister that the Ministry of Finance has not yet announced the rate of dearness allowance payable from 01.01.2015. This was not only creating financial hardships but creating discontentment amongst the employees also. It has been mentioned in the letter that it was the practice of the Finance Ministry to declare the Dearness allowance hike payable from January to central Government employees, in the month of March. Therefore it requested finance ministry to declare the dearness allowance without any delay. The copy of the letter is given below

To,

The Finance Minister,
Govt of India,
New Delhi.

Subject: Payment of Dearness Allowance w.e.f.01.01.2015

Hon’ble Sir,

With due regards, it is submitted that on the basis of Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers, it has been the previous pratice of the Finance Ministry that it declares the Dearness Allowance upto the last week of March payable to Central Government employees with effect from 1st January of the year.

But this year the Ministry of Finance has not yet announced the rate of dearness allowance payable from 01.01.2015. This is not only creating financial hardships but creating discontentment amongst the employees also.

Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that all the Central Government employees may get their legitimate justify of cuurent rate of DA without further delay.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours,

7th Pay commission would go by Dr.Aykhrod formula in arriving at the minimum wage : NCJCM

   The Secretary Staff Side,National Council JCM has invited all its Constituent of NC/JCM(Staff Side) to look through the synopsis of the discussions the staff side had with the 7th CPC on 23rd and 24th March, 2015. It observed that the 7th pay commission would go by Dr. Aykhrod formula in arriving at the minimum wage, but the pay commission was little sceptical of the rates quoted by by NCJCM. Hence the NCJCM need to establish the rates quoted by them were equivalent to the Market Price. So it asked its constituents in 8 Metro Cities to obtain the correct Market Price of the items mentioned below by purchasing it in the Malls and Shops. The content of the letter is given below

Dear Comrades,

We invite your kind attention to the synopsis of the discussions the staff side had with the 7th CPC on 23rd and 24th March, 2015. You will notice there from that the discussions were cordial and the staff side had been able to present their case admirably well. You must have also noticed that the 7thCPC has categorically stated that they would go by Dr. Aykhrod formula in arriving at the minimum wage. However, they were a little skeptical of the rates quoted by us. As you are aware we have taken the rates from the information we have collected through our units in the 8 Metro Cities. Since this is likely to be the bane of contention at the time of finalization of the report, we must be able to establish that the rates other than the one we had submitted is not acceptable to us being bereft of the benefit of retail prices ruling at the relevant point of time. In order to bolster our argument, we would like our leaders especially in the following cities and in other places to purchase the following articles from a reputed Mall as also from a normal provision store with bills duly signed by the owners of the retail outlet and send over to the staff side office. The bill should bear the signature, the rate per kg. and the signature or seal of the concerned establishment. Please treat this as most urgent and a task of serious nature for the rates adopted by the 7th CPC will have far reaching consequences if not contested at the appropriate time.
Rice/Wheat: Different qualities: Rate per kg. (Purchase the highest, lowest and middle rate quality items)

Dal: Toor, Moong, Urad: May be different qualities are available. Purchase three qualities. The highest, lowest and the middle of each item. (Rate per kg.)

Office Memorandum

Sub: Enrolment for Aadhaar number and its seeding in pension records of all pensioners and family pensioners – regarding.

In November, 2014, the Prime Minister has launched an Aadhaar-based biometric verification system “Jeevan Pramaan” to enable pensioners to submit a digital Life Certificate on-line. This is an important step in realising the vision of Digital India. This facility has been provided in addition to the other existing methods of submitting Life Certificate.

2. “Jeevan Pramaan” aims at sparing the pensioners and family pensioners the trouble of visiting bank or any other pension disbursing agency for submission of Life Certificates. It is possible to submit the Life Certificate from personal computers and laptops or by visiting a conveniently located Common Service Centre. Further, banks by linking Aadhaar number with bank accounts and PPO numbers will ensure authenticity of pension and other payments.

3. All the pensioners/family pensioners are, therefore, advised to get themselves and their family members registered for Aadhaar and furnish this information to the Pension Disbursing Authority. This exercise may be completed at an early date so as to avoid inconvenience at the time of submission of Life Certificate in November, 2015.
