            The Secretary,
            Department of Posts’
            Dak Bhawan, New Delhi-110 001
 Sub:  Settlement of Pay Commissions related issues: regarding 
1.         The Finance ministry has constituted an implementation cell which will function as the Sectt. of the empowered Committee headed by  Cabinet Secretary in which  Secretary , Department of Post is also a member.

2.         As per the minutes of implementation cell held on 2nd February, Nodal Officers from our Department has not attended, it is reliably learnt.
3.         The implementation cell has fixed two weeks time for submission of any Departmental specific  Modification on 7th CPC recommendations but it is  learnt  that Nodal Officer appointed  by the  Department is out of Delhi and will be returning after 12thFebruary , by that time, there will be  4 days time left  for cutoff date fixed by implementation cell..
4.         Further minutes says that any modification recommended by the Secretary Posts should be approved by the Minister (C) also before submission to implementation cell. We feel that if action is not taken on war footing it will be impossible for the Postal Department to submit modification proposal to the implementation cell after completing all the above formalities before the cutoff date
5.         Regarding  Cadre Restructuring  also if orders  are not issued before implementation of Pay Commissions report, there is every chance of returning the proposal by DOP&T  for  resubmission after signing fresh  agreement  taking in to consideration the 7th CPC  orders issued  by the Government.
            In view of the above we request you to kindly act immediately to safe guard the interests of Postal Employees without giving room for any delay or omission or commission on the part of Postal Department.
            We have decided certain agitational programmes on which we will be giving a separate memorandum on 11th March 2016.
Yours faithfully

Seventh Pay Commission: Good News! PMO orders to speed up process; notification soon

New Delhi, Feb 6: This will definitely cheer up all the central government employees who are disappointed at the moment as government is delaying the implementation of Seventh Pay Commission. Sources say that after One Rank One Pension, notification for 7th CPC could be released in coming months.

Reportedly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ordered officials to speed up review process so that it could be implemented soon. Modi has asked Committee of Secretaries to provide maximum benefits to central staff.

Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha headed empowered committee which was appointed to overview whole process has been told to accept pay commission's recommendations without diluting them.

PMO wants committee to review all the recommendations as soon as possible, so that Cabinet could take final decision over the same.

One of the officials was quoted by the Express News as saying, "The committee has been told to address the genuine concerns raised by stakeholders and accommodate their demands as much as possible. Although, there is indication that the committee may suggest some changes keeping in mind representations from middle and junior level, the decision will be taken after consultations with all the stakeholders. The entire process will take a couple of months".

Meanwhile, reports also say that in coming months, notification for 7th pay commission could be issue. A Finance Ministry source was quoted by news reports as saying, "One Rank One Pension (OROP) is now going to be implemented after notification. Hence Finance Ministry will issue the notification of ‘Pay Commission award' in forthcoming months".

Refund HRA Deducted From Govt. Servant’s Salary: HC

e Madras High Court Bench here has directed the superiors of a government servant to refund House Rent Allowance (HRA) deducted from her salary even though she refused to occupy a dilapidated residential quarters allotted to her since it was in an uninhabitable condition.

A Division Bench of Justices V. Ramasubramanian and N. Kirubakaran passed the order while allowing a 2011 writ appeal filed by S. Radhamani Thangatchi, then serving as the manager of Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) at Pettai in Tirunelveli district since February 2, 2009.

A single judge of the High Court had on November 18, 2010 dismissed her writ petition, for refund of HRA, by citing a 1995 Supreme Court ruling that a government employee had to either accept the accommodation offered by the employer or forfeit the HRA if he/she preferred to live elsewhere.

However, not in agreement with the view taken by the single judge, the Division Bench said that a look at the photographs of the house allotted to the appellant as well as a report of a Public Works Department official would make it clear that the house was not in a good condition.

“It is very unfortunate that though the appellant requested the respondents not to allot the quarters, the second respondent (ITI Principal) erroneously allotted the quarters in favour of the appellant and deducted the amount towards rent from the salary of the appellant.

In eight weeks:
“The appellant cannot be made to pay rent for the quarters even though she had not occupied it. Therefore, the order of the principal as well as the order of the single judge are set aside and further direction is given to refund the amount within eight weeks,” the judges ordered.
