Cabinet may approve 6% DA on Thursday

The Union Cabinet approval for the 6% rise in the Dearness Allowance for the Central Government employees is expected to be announced on coming Thursday.
It is a well-known fact that every six months, the Central Government increases the Dearness allowance for its employees during the months of January and July. The increased amount is calculated on the price index (CPI IW BY 2001=100) of essential commodities. Rise in the Dearness allowance is being calculated on the basis of the changes in the prices of the essential commodities during the periods between January and June and the period between July and December.

But, it takes around three months since the release of the price index for the months of June and December to arrive at the calculation for the increase in the Dearness allowance. With the result that the increase due from the month of July is being given only from the month of October and the amount due from January is being given only from the month of April.
And, because of this situation, the amount due for the left-behind period of two months is to be settled as arrears. Practical problems arise in the calculation of the arrears amount and also problem arises in clarifying the doubts of the beneficiaries. Pensioners especially, are more tensed up over this procedure.
To avoid this situation, the price index during the periods from November to April and from May to October can be taken into account and the increase in the Dearness allowance calculated based on the information relevant to these periods. The amount can be disbursed from the months of January and July as per this calculation so that there’s no due as arrears.
We imaginatively tested this method to find out the result. It was found out that there was no tangible change in the increase amount if calculated on the basis of the price index obtained during the months of April and October.

Office Memorandum
Subject:- Aadhaar   based Digital Life Certificate  (Jeevan  Pramaan). 

The   Hon’ble    Prime   Minister   has   launched    “Jeevan   Aadhaar”(Aadhaar    based   biometric verification   system   for  pensioner).  To  make  its  implementation    successful   Department  of Financial  Services  has constituted  a  sub-group comprising  of RBI,  Indian  Bank’s  Association (IBA),.. State  Bank   of  India,  Punjab   National   Bank,  Bank   of  Baroda   and  Canara  Bank. Accordingly; ·RBI,  IBA and Department  of Financial   Services  have issued  necessary  guidelines/ instructions to all banks for their convenience.  To implement Jeevan Pramaan  it is  necessary on the part of banks to seed the Aadhaar  number with Pension  Payment   Order and bank account number. To complete this task, all banks have to take special  drive to collect the Aadhaar number. of pensioners and make it a part of their master data.
In the above context Addl. CGA has taken a meeting on 24.12.2014    with  the discuss   the further strategy for speedy implementation    of the system.  In the meeting,  it was decided  that to ensure the genuineness of the pensioner   it is  necessary to seed the Aadhaar number with  PPO and pensioners bank account. Because  at present  banks are not having pensioners’    data base on their  server to link them with the details   of PPOs and Aadhaar numbers,  they were advised to prepare a database  of  pensioners    account  first  at  the  earliest  and  link them  with Aadhaar  server.  For this purpose,  they will call the pensioners   to come to bank along with  their original  Aadhaar card and its photocopy  for  identification.   The designated  officer of the bank will  identify the pensioner with  reference to the PPO and KYC document and seed his  pension  account with Aadhaar server. He will keep the photocopy of Aadhaar  Card in the pensioners’    folder for record.  The bank will apply this strategy immediately  with those pensioners   whose life certificates  are still pending  and are interested to opt for digital certification   of their  life. Thereafter,  they may complete  this task well before November, 2015,   when life certificate becomes dues.
A column for Aadhaar number has been provided in the format of master data and made available on CPAOs website.    All CPPCs are advised  to update their master data duly  seeded with PPO number & bank account numbers and send the same to CPAO by e-mail at cpaomasterdata@gmail.com    at  the  earliest   so that  CPAO  also  updates  its  master  data  for validation   purpose.
This task must be completed on top priority  basis.

Further there cannot be any discrimination between officials having SB accounts in CBS office with that of those who having accounts in non-CBS offices.

            We therefore , request you to kindly look into the matter involving violation of the rules on the subject and natural justice and ensure that the Pay and Allowances are effected uniformly on the due date by means of drawing Pay and Allowances through AR’S and Pen-5 as the case may be.

            A line in the reply is solicited.
           
Thanking you Sir,
Yours faithfully,
