Employee can exceed earned leave limit: HC

In a significant judgment, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has ruled that the accumulated unutilised leave of an employee cannot be reduced to 300 days even if he is entitled to leave encashment for a maximum of 300 days.
The ruling came in case of Haryana Government employees after the High Court was told that accumulated earned leave was reduced to 300 days time and again during the course of service on the assumption that they were entitled to a maximum of 300 days earned leave.
Eventually, when the time came for encashment of unutilised earned leave, they were granted the benefit for lesser number of days.
“If an employee is entitled to leave encashment for a maximum limit of 300 days, that does not mean that the accumulated unutilised leave is to be reduced to 300 days if it exceeds the limit. The earned leave will continue to accumulate till the retirement of the petitioners and the petitioners are to be granted the maximum benefit of 300 days, as stated in the rules,” Justice Kuldip Singh ruled.

7th Pay Commission – Is the Revised HRA Enough?

7th pay commission recommendation on HRA – House rent allowance, in short called as HRA is provided to every central government employee to meet the cost of renting a house in the city of work when no quarters facility is available to him.
However, the prevailing rate of house rent allowance (HRA) of 30, 20 and 10%  has been reduced to 24, 16 and 8% respectively by the 7th Pay Commission.

7th Pay Commission pay scale report: Top 7 points to know

7th Pay Commission on pay and pension: Once the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission are implemented, the biggest gainers will be pensioners. While the 7th Pay Commission pay scale increase of serving employees is 16%, pensioners will see a 23.63% rise. However, the big gain per se is in allowances, which rise by as much as 63%. 
Here we will elaborate on the 7th Pay Commission pension recommendations:

1. The 7th Pay Commission report has determined the initial starting salary at the lowest entry point in government at Rs 18,000, when the comparable wage for a helper in the private sector would be only about Rs 9,000 to Rs 11,000 per month. Currently, in the government, this employee gets about Rs 15,750, including dearness allowance. In other words, if the proposals are accepted, with effect from the new year, the increase in emoluments at the lowest level in the government will be a minimum of 14.2%

7th Pay Commission: Enhanced incentives proposed for Central govt staff acquiring higher qualification

7th Pay Commission: Enhanced incentives proposed for Central govt staff acquiring higher qualification
In its report, the 7th Pay Commission proposes huge increase for Central government employees to obtain higher qualifications.
The 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) may have recommended abolition of 51 allowances, and subsuming 37 others after examining 196 allowances. The final decision however rests with the Centre. While this may cause concern among Central government employees, there are some surprises in store for them.
CPC has not only accepted the demand for retaining some of the allowances, but has also enhanced the amount in its recommendations.
For instance, incentives paid to Central government employees for acquiring higher qualifications. The CPC has proposed a steep hike to staff from the amount currently payable — ranging from Rs 2,000 to Rs 10,000, subject to caveats and existing norms governing such payments.
“The Commission appreciates the need to encourage acquiring of higher qualifications. At the same time, it is important that the knowledge so acquired is directly relevant to the scope of the employee’s occupation,” it said in its voluminous report submitted to the Indian government on November 19, 2015.
However, the CPC refused to bring the incentives on par with those payable to defence personnel, saying it was not feasible “in view of the different service conditions, mode of recruitment and other factors.”

Precautions to be taken by the users of DOP Finacle in various scenarios

  • In Finacle as we all know that while logging to the Finacle application there is no bio-metric detection of that user hence there might be chances of misuse of the user ids hence we have to strictly follow the below precautions.
  • Always send the user id change requests i.e., role change/sol change/delete requests to the respective CPC from the concerned Divisional SPOC only.
  • Also send all the user requests to respective CPC preferably before 24 hrs in order to overcome the delay in processing the user requests.
  • All the user requests received from all the CPC's will be processed by CEPT User id team in Chennai hence kindly send the requests 24 hrs before.
  • I have generally identified the various scenarios in which users of Finacle application should be  extra careful and the detailed description is mentioned below.
