Shocking! 7th Pay Commission recommends abolition of overtime for government employees

New Delhi: The speculations and frenzy around 7th Pay Commission is refusing to come down, with reports pouring in the media every other day about newer angles to it.

Fresh in the buzz is that the 7th Pay Commission has recommended that over time, the time spent beyond stipulated work hours, be abolished for government employees, as per a report in the Hindu.

The Pay Panel's recommendation is grounded by the fact that overtime allowance has increased from Rs.797 crore to Rs.1,629 crore between 2012-13.

The Panel has also observed that the main focus should be on improving the “productivity and efficiency” thereby applying “stricter” control on the Centre’s expenditure under the head, the Hindu report further said.

The government has earlier stated that implementation of new pay scales recommended by the 7th Pay Commission is estimated to put an additional burden of Rs 1.02 lakh crore, or 0.7 percent of GDP, on the exchequer in 2016-17.

Meanwhile, a secretaries group, which was formed to study the recommendation of 7th Pay Commission is ready with its review. But it will submit its report once the elections get over.

The government had set up a high-powered panel headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which will have bearing on the remuneration of 47 lakh central government employees and 52 lakh pensioners.

For the First Time, 33 officials / officers including 7 Group ‘A’ officers prematurely retired for non-performance
 
 and 72 officers / officials including 6 Group ‘A’ Officers dismissed in other departmental / disciplinary actions in the last two years.

The present Government has taken various steps to change this perception following the principle of good governance. After the present Government took over two years back, it has taken strict action against such revenue officers/officials in order to fix their accountability.

For the first time, 33 officers / officials of the Revenue Services, including seven Group ‘A’ officers, have been prematurely retired for non-performance under Rule 56(j) of CCS (Pension) Rules. Further, 72 officers / officials have been dismissed including six Group ‘A’ officers, in other departmental/ disciplinary actions in the last two years. 

No leakage of email and mobile numbers from user profile data of IRCTC E-ticketing system – IRCTC


No leakage of email and mobile numbers from user profile data of IRCTC E-ticketing system – IRCTC

“About 5.48 lakh tickets were booked in a single day in April 2016 with 2.66 lakh peak concurrent users. About 13,600 tickets per minute were booked.”

Clarification regarding website of IRCTC Which sells E-Ticket of Indian Railways

News Reports have appeared in some Electronic and Print media regarding alleged leakage of email and mobile numbers from user profile data of IRCTC E-ticketing system. Indian Railway Catering and Tourism corporation (IRCTC) is a PSU of Indian Railways. Its website irctc.co.in is used for purchasing Railway E-Tickets.

Firstly, Indian Railways would like to clarify that there has been no hacking of the IRCTC website. The E-ticketing website has been working normally thereby eliminating any chances of unauthorized interference. As soon as the matter came to notice of Railways on 02/05/2016, thorough investigations were conducted to detect veracity of the news, however, no such incident has been detected. The Ministry would like to assure that all necessary Safeguards and security checks are in place for this website. There is a system of regular security audits by concerned departments of government of India. All the components of the system are functioning normal and no unusual activity has been discovered. All sensitive data like passwords etc are stored in encrypted form. In addition to this, 24×7 monitoring of the system is done throughout the year by technical team of experts. Hence there is no cause for any panic or concern. A Railway committee set up couple of days back, in its preliminary report has not found any indication of breach of security in any of the databases of the E‑ticketing system.

The complete facts about the matter is given below :-
The News Reports have appeared in some Electronic and Print media regarding alleged leakage of email and mobile numbers from user profile data of IRCTC E-ticketing system. Indian Railway Catering and Tourism corporation (IRCTC) is a PSU of Indian Railways. Its website irctc.co.in is used for purchasing Railway E-Tickets-ticketing system is managed in-house by CRIS, the IT arm of Indian Railways. The Data centre is in the premises of CRIS. As soon as the matter came to notice of Railways on 02/05/2016, thorough investigations were conducted to detect veracity of the news, however, no such incident has been detected by the technical teams of Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) and Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).

No “Denial of Service attack” (DoS/DDoS) has been successful and the E-ticketing website has been working normally thereby eliminating any chances of unauthorized interference. About 5.48 lakh tickets were booked in a single day in April 2016 with 2.66 lakh peak concurrent users. About 13,600 tickets per minute were booked.

The E-ticketing system has several components viz., internet gateway, network security devices such as gateway router and Firewall, Application Delivery Controller, Security Information Event Management System (SIEM) web server and database server access logs. Each of the components has been checked and none of the components has been found to have unusual activity. Technical investigations have also not indicated any unusual activity with respect to various system components.

The IT security of E-ticketing system is ensured through regular security audits by Standardization Testing Quality Certification (STQC) directorate of Department of Electronics and IT, Government of India. The entire traffic flowing on E-ticketing system internet gateway is also forwarded to CERT-In in real-time for monitoring and alerting. The gaps reported by STQC in their penetration testing have been addressed. However, auditing is an ongoing process and security audit of E-ticketing system is undertaken biannually.

Audit trails are maintained for access to the system and all sensitive data like passwords etc are stored in encrypted form. In addition to this, 24×7 monitoring of the system is done throughout the year by technical team of experts. Strict physical checks are already in place in the Data centre like restricted access to Data centre, CCTV cameras at entry and exit points of Data centre.

The data of E-ticketing system can be broadly categorized into two categories viz., sensitive information like Debit/Credit Card details, Login ID, Passwords, which could cause potential financial risk. PAN card detail is not required for booking E-ticket. No sensitive data has been alleged to have been leaked.

It is clarified that other data like mobile number and email ids is available with a large number of electronic service providing entities viz., E-commerce firms, telemarketers etc. Email and mobile numbers have to be shared with service providers for providing catering services, cab services, hotel bookings, SMS services, etc. Till now, leakage of data through none of the service providers of IRCTC has been established.

A joint committee comprising of officers from both CRIS and IRCTC has been set up. The committee in their preliminary report has not found any indication of breach of security in any of the databases of the E‑ticketing system. Further investigations by this committee is in progress and once the purported leaked data is made available, further checks will be conducted.

JCA'S DHARNA INAUGURATED BY COM. M KRISHNAN SECRETARY GENERAL CONFEDERATION AT TVM NORTH DIVISION ON 04.05.2016






सातवें वेतन आयोग ने केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की न्यूनतम सैलरी 18,000 और अधिकतम 2,50,000 रु करने की सिफारिश की है
वित्त मंत्रालय के अधिकारियों के अनुसार सैलरी बढ़ाने पर जो वित्तीय बोझ बढ़ेगा, उसे उठाने के लिए सरकार तैयार है उम्मीद से बढ़कर सचिवों का समूह न्यूनतम सैलरी 21,000 और अधिकतम 2,70,000 रुपये करने की सिफारिश कर सकता है

केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों को जून के बाद राहत की खबर मिल सकती है। सातवें पे-कमीशन की सिफारिशों को अमल में लाने के लिए गठित सचिवों का समूह इस बारे में अपनी अंतिम रिपोर्ट 30 जून को दे सकता है। इसमें सबसे अहम बात यह है कि केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की न्यूनतम और अधिकतम सैलरी को लेकर सचिवों के समूह का रवैया काफी उदार रह सकता है।

सूत्रों के अनुसार सचिवों का समूह केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की न्यूनतम सैलरी 21,000 रुपये और अधिकतम सैलरी 2,70,000 रुपये की सिफारिश कर सकता है। जबकि 7वें पे-कमीशन ने केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की न्यूनतम सैलरी 18,000 रुपये और अधिकतम 2,50,000 रुपये करने की सिफारिश की है। मतलब है कि अगर सचिवों के समूह की सिफारिशें मान ली गईं तो केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों को उम्मीद से कहीं बेहतर सैलरी मिलेगी। सरकार ने कैबिनेट सेक्रेटरी पी के सिन्हा के नेतृत्व में सचिवों के समूह का गठन किया है। यह समूह 7वें पे-कमीशन की सिफारिशों का अध्ययन करने के बाद इन पर अपनी सिफारिशें और सुझाव देगा।

11 जून को अहम बैठक: सचिवों के समूह ने सभी केंद्रीय मंत्रालयों और विभागों से 7वें पे-कमीशन की सिफारिशों पर राय देने को कहा है। सभी मंत्रालयों और विभागों यह राय 11 जून से पहले सौंपनी है। 11 जून को अंतिम बैठक होगी और उसके बाद सचिवों का समूह 30 जून तक अपनी रिपोर्ट को फाइनल करेगा और सरकार को सौंपेगा। सूत्रों के अनुसार वित्त मंत्रालय भी चाहता है कि रिपोर्ट, जून या जुलाई तक उसको मिल जाए ताकि उसके पास पर इन सिफारिशों पर अंतिम फैसला लेने के लिए कम से एक महीने का समय हो। मंत्रालय के उच्चाधिकारियों के अनुसार सरकार केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की सैलरी में इजाफे की घोषणा त्योहारी सीजन से पहले करना चाहती है। इससे इकनॉमी को फायदा हो सकता है। अगर केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों के पास पैसा आएगा तो वह इसे त्योहारी सीजन में खर्च करेंगे। ऐसा करने से त्योहारी सीजन में मार्केट में रौनक बढ़ने की काफी संभावनाएं होंगी।

क्या है सरकार की मजबूरी/: स्मॉल सेविंग स्कीमों पर ब्याज दर कम करने से आम आदमी नाराज है। इसके बाद मजदूर संगठनों की नाराजगी के चलते सरकार को पीएफ पर ब्याज दरें बढ़ानी पड़ी हैं। ऐसे में सरकार अब केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की नाराजगी मोल नहीं लेना चाहती है। यही कारण है कि वह सचिवों के समूह की सिफारिशों पर उदारता के साथ विचार करेगी। केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों के संगठनों ने इस बात की चेतावनी दी है कि अगर सरकार ने केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की सैलरी बढ़ाने में किसी प्रकार की कंजूसी की तो वह विरोध प्रदर्शन करेंगे। वित्त मंत्रालय के उच्चाधिकारियों के अनुसार केंद्रीय कर्मचारियों की सैलरी बढ़ाने पर जो वित्तीय बोझ बढ़ेगा, उसे उठाने के लिए सरकार तैयार है। सरकार इसके लिए अलग से 1 लाख करोड़ रुपये का प्रबंध करने में लगी है। विनिवेश और दूसरे तरीकों से जुटाए गए धन का इस्तेमाल इसके लिए किया जाएगा। पहले साल में इसका बोझ काफी होगा।
