Latest update on cadre restructuring in CBEC

Latest update on cadre restructuring in CBEC - news has been received from Sri Debobroto Mondal, Organising Secy., AICEIA, WB Circle, who is now in Delhi, that the file containing cadre restructuring proposal is awaiting COS's meeting which is likely to be held on 7th of August '13. Once it is passed by the COS, it would go to the Cabinet for approval and then to the Implementation Cell for implementation. Apprehension is there about the role of DOPT in the proposed meeting. 

It is further gathered that the Income Tax Staff side 'ITGOA' & 'ITEF' are in Delhi and they are planning to protest against the restructuring in the CBDT which is in the process for implementation.

The most important of all : the point resolved by the AICEIA in the year 2011 i.e. to resolve the ratio for promotion to the grade of Assistant Commissioner the revised recruitment rule has been finalized and in all probability from the next promotion to the grade of Assistant Commissioner the revised ratio would be applicable. Now, the job left is to have review DPC for all the promotion from 1996 onward.

Expected DA from July 2013 for central government employees

Since the implementation of 6CPC from 1-1-2006, the consumer price index number for industrial worker is not coming down ever but it is increasing month by month. Similarly the rate of dearness allowance paid to central government employees also increasing at the interval of every six months period. The rate of dearness allowance was at zero level on 01-01-2006. After six years from implementation of 6CPC, now the dearness allowance stands at 80% level. The average increase in the dearness allowance is at the rate of 13% per year. Actually there is nothing to rejoice over the increase of dearness allowance. The Dearness allowance is nothing but the reflection of consumer price index. Likewise the consumer price index is determined by increase in the prices of basket of identified essential commodities. The increase of CPI number is not good any way for either the government employees or common people. Whatever the money the central government employees are supposed to get from the dearness allowance hike will be swallowed by the essential commodities for which they have to spend every month, since the prices of all the essential commodities are increasing at the alarming rate.
Now everyone eyes at the expected dearness allowance from July 2013. It is now 80 percent of AICPI Numbers from which the rate of DA has to be arrived has been released. The AICIN for Industrial Workers for two more months are yet to be released to confirm the exact rate of Dearness Allowance going to be approved by the central government. The average of AICPIN for IW from the month of July 2012 to June 2013 will determine the rate of dearness allowance to be paid from July 2013. So look at the Consumer price Index numbers from June 2012 given below
MonthJul-2012Aug-2012Sep-2012Oct-2012Nov-2012Dec-2012Jan-2013Feb-2013Mar-2013Apr-2013May-2013Jun-2013
AICPIN212214215217218219221223224226--
The formula for calculating dearness allowance is:
( Avg of AICPI for the past 12 months – 115.76)*100/115.76
To find out the average CPI for 12 months we need remaining two months CPI numbers. Let us assume that if the remaining two months AICPI numbers stands at 226 levels, the average AICPI for 12 months is 220.0833.
If we apply this in the formula given above the answer is = 90.120
From this it is now very much clear that, even though if there is no change in the position of AICPI numbers for remaining two months, if it happened to continue in the same level of 226 points for remaining two months, the increase in the rate of dearness allowance will be 10% for the next six months starts from July 2013. According to this, the expected dearness allowance from July 2013 for central government employees will not be less than 90% level.
     So it is expected that the dearness allowance will be increased from existing 80% to 90% level from July 2013. With this 10% increase in dearness allowance, the annual increment for the year 2013  will also be granted for all the central government employees from July 2013.

UPDATE ON CADRE RESTRUCTURING BY COM. LOK NATH MISHRA

We have informed that the meeting of Committee of Secretaries under the chairmanship of Cabiet Secretary relating to approval of Cadre Restructuring of CBEC was just completed and 
the minutes of such meeting would be reverted back to CBEC on 10.07.2013. But we are sorry to inform you that the present DOPT Secretary was previously Additional Secretary of DOPT , and he was instrumental in making cut from the orginal proposal.
He (along with a note for approval of the proposal cleared by DOPT previously) went to Cabinet Secretary and pleaded for approval. But Cabinet Secretary wanted  opinion from Revenue Secretary ,who is at present on leave. Hence CR file is still with Cabinet Secretary. Mean while we met Cabinet Secretary along with one MP and pleaded for approvlaof CR as recommended by FM. Somehow Cabinet Secretary is convinced.
