7th Pay Commission latest news: Gratuity limit doubled from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 20 Lakh

New Delhi: In a good news for government employees of organised sector, the central government has decided to increased the gratuity limit to Rs. 20 lakh from Rs. 10 lakh, on the recommendation of 7th pay commission panel.

The decision came after a meeting between the labour ministry and representatives from states, employees and employers which took place on Thursday. “All the stakeholders—states, Centre, unions and the industry representatives were on the same page to enhance the gratuity ceiling from Rs10 lakh to Rs20 lakh,” a labour ministry spokesperson said after the meeting.

The unions demanded the removal of conditions asking to have at least 10 employees in an establishment and minimum five years of service for payment of gratuity. Business portal NDTV profit quoted Manoj Nagpal, CEO of Outlook Asia Capital, saying it is not advisable to put money entirely into debt as, “chances are that one might run out of his/her corpus.” He added, “They have to plan for next 20-25 years as the life expectancy has increased significantly. It is advisable that a person puts at least 20-25 per cent in equities.”

“While accepting the maximum payment limit of Rs 20 lakh as an interim measure, the unions demanded that the ceilings/ limit with respect to number of employees and years of service should be removed,” the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) said in a statement. “The central trade unions have been urging the government that the ceiling in the amount of gratuity should be removed,” the statement further read.

At present, as per the Payment of Gratuity Act, an employee is required to do a minimum service of five years to become eligible for gratuity amount. Moreover, the Act applies to those establishments where the number of employees is not less than 10.The statement said the application of amended provision regarding maximum amount should be made effective from January 1, 2016 as done in the case of central government employees.

Central Government Introduced Free Anti-Virus for PC and Mobile

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad, Hon’ble Minister of Electronics and Information Technology said, “India is going to take a lead in the digitization process of the world. India today joined the distinguished club of countries that have malware cleaning systems for the use of its citizens. As of now, we have 13 Banks & internet service providers using this facility. With the expanding digital footprint in the country, I see a surge in start-ups in the area of cyber security by the end of the year”

“With the expanding role of Information and Communication technology across sectors and growth in volume of transactions and data exchange via internet, Cyber Security as reiterated by Hon’ble Prime Minister, has emerged as the most critical factor when we move towards Digital India. Combating cyber threats is not something that can be done just by the government or an organisation or an individual alone. It requires a partnership approach. This centre being launched today will work in coordination with the Internet Service Providers and Industry. This Kendra will also enhance awareness among citizens regarding botnet and malware infection along with measures to be taken to secure their devices”, added Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Given below are details of some of the tools released for citizens:

  • USB Pratirodh -A desktop security solution, which protects from USB mass storage device threats.
  • AppSamvid – A desktop solution which protects systems by allowing installation of genuine applications through white listing. This helps in preventing threats from malicious applications.
  • M-Kavach – An indigenously developed solution to address the security threats in mobiles.

Allowances report today and allowance hike from April 1, says NJCA chief

NJCA chief Shiv Gopal Mishra confirmed that the allowances report would be submitted on Wednesday.


New Delhi, Feb 21: Committee on allowances, headed by Finance Secretary Ashok Lavasa, will submit its report tomorrow, claims National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) convenor Shiv Gopal Mishra. Central government employees were expecting the report to be tabled by Monday. However, the committee delayed the submission due to unspecified reasons. The report would pave the way for the implementation of hiked allowances as per the revised 7th Pay Commission recommendations.


"Government has made no announcement yet. But the report by Committee on allowances would be tabled tomorrow," Shiv Gopal Mishra said, while speaking exclusively to India.com. On being asked whether the government would make an announcement in relation to the arrears on allowances, he replied, "Let us see what comes out of the report. We are expecting the hike in allowances, as per our demands. We have to wait and see whether the government makes an announcement on arrears as well."


The committee on allowances was formed in July 2016, after central government employees raised several anomalies related to the 7th Pay Commission report submitted by Justice (retd) AK Mathur. The 7CPC report had recommended the abolition of 51 existing allowances, and subsumption of 37 others of the total 191 allowances.



The major point of grievance was the reduction in Housing Rent Allowance (HRA) offered to central government employees. As per the 6th Pay Commission report, the HRAs provided were 30 per cent, 20 per cent, 10 per cent for employees living in 'X', 'Y', 'Z' category towns/cities. However, the 7th Pay Commission report decreased the allowances to 24, 16 and 8 per cent of the basic pay.


Reduction in HRA has irked a major section of central government employees, who reside in rented accommodations. A section of the aggrieved employees have blamed the top bureaucracy for the delay in HRA hike. "Naturally, the common central government employees are more affected by the delay in allowance hike. The top bureacrats don't take higher allowances, therefore, they are not interested in the hike," Mishra said.


Apart from the hike in allowances, central government employees have also demanded Centre to provide arrears on the allowances. Since the date of implementation of 7th Pay Commission was fixed as January 1, 2016, employees have demanded the release of arrears on allowances as well.


Although the government provided arrears on basic pay while hiking the salaries on July 1, indications have been made that no arrears would be released on allowances. NJCA has confirmed that the employee unions would launch protest across the nation if the allowances are hiked, without the arrears. "Arrears are unlikely, but protests would be launched if they fail to release (the arrears)," Mishra said.


The date of allowances hike is reported to be April 1. NJCA claims, through its sources, that the government would be implementing the allowance hike from April 1. "It is most likely that the government announces the hike by April 1," Mishra confirmed.

India Post Payments Bank will send money via Aadhaar sans(లేకుండా) bank account linking

India Post Payments Bank will be able to send and receive money through an Aadhaar and it won’t matter if it will be linked to a bank account or not, reports the Economic Times. AP Singh, interim managing director and CEO of the newly formed payments bank, told the publication that the Aadhaar will be made a payment address which can work with or without a bank account linked to it.

Singh, who was also a member of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), also said that there was pilot with five banks which included the State Bank of India to test the model but the project did not take off due to the low penetration of broadband in the country and discomfort of mobile applications.

Note that Singh’s statement runs contrary to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) stand. In a speech yesterday, R Gandhi, deputy governor of the RBI, was responding to why some non-bank entities cannot be allowed to keep accounts. “Our answer is simple. If you maintain “an account”, then you are a bank and you need a banking licence,” he said. “When you keep the money of the public in “account”, you are a financial entity taking deposits and you must be public trustworthy and so be regulated as a deposit taking financial entity,” he added.

To be clear, India Post Payments Bank does have a payments bank licence from the RBI. However, the UIDAI does not have a banking licence and as such, the Aadhaar cannot be used to keep an “account” of money. It is unclear how India Post Payments Bank will be able to offer the service or if other players in the payments industry will be able to offer the same.

The department of posts got a payments bank licence last month and began pilot operations in Ranchi and Raipur.
Aadhaar Pay and Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS)
Last month, the government launched a new payment mechanism called Aadhaar Pay which would allow any person with his Aadhaar number linked to Bank account, can make and receive payment, with a thumb impression alone. Note that this still does require linking of a bank account.

Note that Aadhaar Pay is not the same as the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AEPS). The AEPS is a financial inclusion product developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) which allows cash withdrawal, deposit and funds transfer at POS (MicroATM) through a business correspondent of any bank using the Aadhaar authentication.

STOP- Personalized cards request being placed by SOLs

Dear SPOCs,

  This is in continuation of this office email dated Thursday, December 1, 2016 12:03 PM regarding non-printing of personalized cards wef 02.12.16 due to non-availability of plastic cards. However, it is noticed that still SOLs are placing personalized card requests and as on date SOLs have placed 5479 personalized card requests from 02.12.16 to 20.02.17.

   If SOL places personalized card request then the same cannot be printed due to non-availability of plastic cards. In such cases SOLs are issuing instant card on later date with/without deleting personalized card requests which will not get activated leading to customer complaints. Also once the personalized card request placed and deleted on later dates will not get deleted technically since the data has already been downloaded at our end. For any CIF either instant or personalized card request should only be placed.

Till such time, diversion of Instant cards may be done to needy offices as intimated earlier with the correct procedure.

  Hence, issue strict instructions to each and every SOL of your Circle to stop placing personalized cards with immediate effect.  

Thanks & regards,
