Consolidated instructions by DoPT on the subject of age relaxation


Many veterans, especially Other Ranks, face problems while applying for civil jobs after retirement / discharge / invalidation as far as the issue of age relaxation is concerned.

The Govt, through various OMs and notifications issued from time to time has provided for age relaxation for various categories of individuals, including ex-servicemen, for the purposes of recruitment.

To mitigate confusion on the subject, the Department of Personnel and Training has issued consolidated instructions in the form of an OM for the information of all concerned.

COMMENT BY-COL LAMBA
IN 5thCPC DA ON ATTAINING 50% WAS MERGED IN BASIC AS DP
IN 6th CPC VARIOUS ALLOWANCES FOR SERVING HAS BEEN HIKED BY 25% ON ATTAINING DA AT 50%
SO IT IS GREAT INJUSTICE TO PENSIONER AS DA HAS REACHED 50% BUT NOT ADDED AS DP AS IN 5th CPC.ANY LOGIC PLEASE FOR THIS VARIATION
IS DOCUMENT WAS SIGNED WHILE IN PERSON IN AUTHORITY WAS SLEEPING AS DGP MUMBAI WAS SLEEPING IN CAR WITH UNIFORM ON 26/11 WHEN A MAJOR WAS BEING KILLED

sir,
1.Tks a lot for such a latest policy from dopt.
2. now a days most of the department have made grade pay of 4200 and above post as Group B though as per recruitment rule they are Group C post. At present through combined graduate level exam conducted by ssc has only four post as Group C (a) Inspector of income tax (b) asst enforcement officer in enforcement dte (c) si in cbi (d) divisional accountant in cag. enforcement dte and cbi has stopped giving reservation to ex servicemen candidate.
3. Biggest problem is after serving initial term in armed forces average age of or is 38 to 40 years. then what is the use of giving 5 years age relaxation to ex sm for group b posts when age for civilian candate is 27 years. when I represented to dopt, their answer is " matter is being examined" for permitting ex servicemen reservation in group B non gazetted posts. very few posts are left for exservicemen i.e. in 4000 posts just 43 post given to ex servicemen in CGLE 2011.

MERGER OF 50 % DA IN DP ON CROSSING 505 DA SLAB

DEAR FRIENDS
1., THIS IS ANOMALY OF 6th PAY COMMISSION,WHEN ALL OTHER ALLOWANCES HAVE BEEN ENHANCED BY 25% WHEN DA CROSSED 50 %
THAN HOW MOTHER OF ALL ALLOWANCE DA MERGER HAS BEEN NEGLECTED.
3. MERELY SAYING COMMISSION HAS NOT RECOMMENDED IS WRONG APPROACH. MISTAKE OF PAY COMMISSION IS TAKEN AS ANOMALY AND IS REQUIRED TO BE CORRECTED BY TAKING UP CASE
4. ARMY HQ HAS BEEN REQUESTED TO TAKE UP CASE FOR 50% DA MERGERS IN PAY & PENSION FOR BENEFIT OF SERVING & RETIRED
5.CASE WAS GIVEN TO ALL INDIA UNION. THE UNION HAS INCLUDED IN AGENDA POINT OF 28 FEB,2012. THE UNION IS GOING AGAIN ON STRIKE IN JUNE
6.INTERESTED PERSONS SHOULD TAKE UP CASE AS PER THEIR WILL

WITH REGARDS

4. ONE RANK ONE PENSION .PM/FM/RM/COAS ALL SAY IT HAS BEEN ACCEPTED & APPROVED BUT LETTER OF IMPLEMENTATION NOT YET ISSUED FOR PAYMENT, KINDLY ISSUE ONE RANK ONE PENSION IMPLEMENTATION LETTER APPROVED BY GOVERNMENT
ANAMOLIES OF EARLIER PAY COMMISSION /BUDGET
1. DA SHOULD NOT BE TAXED: IT IS UNJUSTIFIED TO TAX DA. BY TAXING THE DA, EMPLOYEES ARE DENIED THEIR LEGITIMATE RIGHT TO FIGHT INFLATION AS A PIE IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THEIR PLATE BY INCOME TAX. IT WAS NOT TAXED FOR SIX DECADES, BUT SMART EX FM PC TAXED DA AT HIS OWN WISDOM & NO WHEN RESISTED/CONTESTED.KINDLY DONOT TAX DA.
2.STANDARD DEDUCTION REINTRODUCTION: IT WAS APPLICABLE FOR SIX DECADES BUT WAS TAKEN AWAY BY EX FM PC.IT IS UNJUST AND UNDEMOCRATIC ACT AND SHOULD BE RE-INTRODUCED
3..PENSION IS A DEFERRED WAGE ALL ALLOWANCE APPLICABLE TO SERVING SHOULD BE GIVEN TO PENSIONER LIKE HRA TRANSPORT,CHILDREN,LTC EXTRA DEPENDING UPON BASIC PENSION OF PENSIONER
4. PROVIDE BASIC INCOME TAX EXEMPTION TO SENIOR CITIZEN UP TO 5 LACS IN FY 2004-05 SR CITIZEN TAX BENEFIT OF RS 20000 AS COMPARED 2005-2006 OTHERS WERE RAISED TO 100000 SR TO 185000 SO ACTUAL RELIEF CAME TO 12000 INSTEAD OF 20000.THERE AFTER REDUCED FURTHER EVERY YEAR NOW DIFFERENCE IS ONLY 5000.THIS YEAR RELIEF INCREASED TO OTHERS BY 20000 AND ZERO TO SENIOR CITIZEN. COMPARISON TO 2004-2005 FOOD INFLATION HAS GONE 5 TIMES & MEDICAL TIMES. HENCE GOVERNMENT PROVIDE TAX EXEMPTION AS 5 LACS
5. PENSION TO BE 75 PERCENT OF BASIC PAY FOR ARMY INDIAN ARMY IS ON DESIGN OF BRITISH ARMY. TILL 1955 ARMY PENSION WAS ON SAME LINE. BUT CIVIL BABU'S TOOK IT AWAY. IT SHOULD BE RESTORED AND BE PAID AS PAR WITH BRITISH COUNTER PART OR LIKE OTHER COUNTRIES. INDIAN OFFICER HAS TO FIGHT WAR, YOU CANNOT REPLACE INDIAN OFFICER WITH OFFICER FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. PREVIOUSLY FROM PRINCELY /ELITE FAMILIES USED TO SEND PERSON TO FORCES, NOW CREAMY LAYER IS NOT COMING TO ARMY.

My query is pertaining to pay fixation/protection in DPSU. Are DPSU governed by DoPT rules and regulations. it has been seen that Defence officers are given a very raw deal on subject. If an individual is presently drawing say amount x as basic y as grade pay and z as MSP so that say his total emoluments are z including x,y,z and other benefits such as tpt and HRA. Then DPSU shall protect his basic + grade + MSP or his total emolument Z. Pl clarify and advice
