What Is CSI ? What Is Going To Happen In The Future In Post Offices

 

What Is CSI ? What Is Going To Happen In The Future In Post Offices


What is CSI?

Core system Integrator or in short CSI is a new software which will replace our legacy meghdoot modules completely. 

Yes all software which we are using now like Meghdoot Point Of Sale, Treasury, Sub Accounts, Accounts and Accountant module will be replaced by

  1. CSI Point Of Sale
  2. CSI Back Office and
  3. SAP
All our day to day transaction will be done using the above three new software only. These new software are developed by TCS and trust me they have done a great job. They have brought everything under one roof.


Not only operational post offices, but administrative offices like divisional offices, regional and circle offices must use CSI SAP module to do their daily works. 


Every thing is well organised in this new software. But the learning curve is a little steep. Counter operations are all bit easy but when it comes to the SAP part, things get really rough.


Our day to day work in sub offices is mostly done using CSI Point of Sale (PoS) and CSI Back Office software only.


With the help of these new products which we are going to use soon, our work will greatly reduce.


The duplication of work which we had to do will now completely be gone. Previously, whatever transactions we do at sub offices, were again had to be done at HO using Sub accounts and accounts module, the same transactions are to again accounted for in Circle Offices and again at the directorate level.


This repetition of work will completely be gone. Since all the transactions which take place at Sub offices or even branch offices will be stored in a central location and hence need not fed again in the system.We haven't got the official confirmation but, we think that there will not be any more SO daily accounts, schedules and stuff any more. Just do your work, tally the money and go home. Isn't it great? Yes absolutely.
But the only problem is getting used to the new software. No problem, just keep following our blog and you will be doing good.

Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2015-16

Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2015-16
No.7/24/2007/E III (A)
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure
(E III-A Branch)
North Block,New Delhi
3rd October,2016
OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Subject: Grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (ad-hoc bonus) to Central Government Employees for the year 2015-16.
The undersigned is directed to convey the sanction of the President to the grant of Non-Productivity Linked Bonus (Ad-hoc Bonus) equivalent to 30 days emoluments for the accounting year 2015-16 to the Central Government employees in Groups ‘C’ and ‘D’ and all non-gazetted employees in Group ‘B’, who are not covered by any Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. The calculation ceiling for payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders shall be monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000/-, as revised w.e.f 01/04/2014 vide OM No.7/4/2014-E.III(A), dated 29th August, 2016. The payment of ad-hoc Bonus under these orders will also be admissible to the eligible employees of Central Para Military Forces and Armed Forces. The orders will be deemed to be extended to the employees of Union Territory Administration which follow the Central Government pattern of emoluments and are not covered by any other bonus or ex-gratia scheme.
2. The benefit will be admissible subject to the following terms and conditions:-
(i) Only those employees who were in service as on 31.3.2016 and have rendered at least six months of continuous service during the year 2015-16 will be eligible for payment under these orders. Pro-rata payment will be admissible to the eligible employees for period of continuous service during the year from six months to a full year, the eligibility period being taken in terms of number of months of service (rounded off to the nearest number of months);
(ii) The quantum of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) will be worked out on the basis of average emoluments/calculation ceiling whichever is lower. To calculate NonPLB (Ad-hoc bonus) for one day, the average emoluments in a year will be divided by 30.4 (average number of days in a month). This will, thereafter, be multiplied by the number of days of bonus granted. To illustrate, taking the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments of Rs. 7000 (where actual average  emoluments exceed Rs. 7000), Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) for thirty days would work out to Rs. 7000×30/30.4=Rs.6907.89 (rounded off to Rs.6908/-).
(iii) The casual labour who have worked in offices following a 6 days week for at least 240 days for each year for 3 years or more (206 days in each year for 3 years or more in the case of offices observing 5 day week), will be eligible for this Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) Payment. The amount of Non-PLB (ad-hoc bonus) payable will be (Rs.1200×30/30.4 i.e.Rs.1184.21 (rounded off to Rs.1184/-). In cases where the actual emoluments fall below RS.1200/- p.m., the amount will be calculated on actual monthly emoluments.
(iv) All payments under these orders will be rounded off to the nearest rupee.
(v) The clarificatory orders issued vide this Ministry’s OM No.F.14 (10)-E.Coord/88 dated 4.10.1988, as amended from time to time, would hold good.
3. The expenditure on this account will be debilable to the respective Heads to which the pay and allowances of these employees are debited.
4. The expenditure to be incurred on account of Non-PLB (Ad-hoc Bonus) is to be met from within the sanctioned budget provision of concerned Ministries/Departments for the current year.
5. In so far as the persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders are issued in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

Recommendation of 7th CPC on Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme – NFIR


Recommendation of 7th CPC on Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme – NFIR
NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railways
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi – 110 055
PRESS RELEASE
Reacting to the news item appearing in ‘The Hindu’ of 04th October 2016 relating to the acceptance of the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission on Modified Assured Career Progress Scheme (MACPS) and the DoP&T OM dated 27th/28th September 2016, the General Secretary said that while the Government has wrongly accepted the recommendation, at the same time has been spreading wrong news through the media. He said that the Scheme has been existing since 1st September 2008 and is not a new scheme as claimed by the Government.
Dr.Raghavaiah further said that while accepting the 7th CPC recommendations relating to the MACP Scheme for Central Government employees, the Government has totally ignored the agreement reached with the JCM (Staff Side) on 17/07/2012 and 27/07/2012 in the Joint Committee and National Advisory Committee Meetings wherein agreement was reached to maintain the same benchmark as is applicable for filling the vacancies through promotion by selection/non-selection/fitness instead of insisting upon the benchmark ‘Very Good’ recommended by the 6th Central Pay Commission. Thereafter, the DoP&T vide OM dated 01st November 2010 and 04th October 2012 issued necessary instructions for granting MACP to the Central Government employees.
The Federation takes note that the Government while accepting the 7th CPC recommendations relating to financial upgradation under MACP Scheme to its employees has again taken U-turn and had once again fixed the benchmark ‘Very Good’ arbitrarily for granting financial upgradation mainly to deny the legitimate benefit to its employees without any dialogue with JCM (Staff Side) – the machinery setup to deal with the issues of Central Government employees which is totally unjustified.
The Federation strongly opposes the move of the Government for which communications have already been sent by the Federation twice to the Cabinet Secretary on 2nd August and 23rd August 2016 to respect the bilateral agreement reached with the JCM (Staff Side) and restore the decision given vide DoP&T OM dated 01/ll/20l0 and 04/10/2012 without making any change on the settled issue.
The General Secretary, NFIR hopes that the Government would consider the above points and rectify the mistake soon duly restoring the earlier instructions of DoP&T to honor the commitment made to the Staff Side.

DA & Linking Factor – What’s expected?



DA & Linking Factor – What’s expected? – DA Announcement and linking factor explored.
As you all know that DA is calculated based on AICPIN. AICPIN is calculated based on the inflation and the cost of living in various cities. So, what’s going to happen in 7th Pay Commission, let’s read. 

In Pay Commission III, the base year was used as (1960 =100).

  • In 4th Pay Commission, the DA was decided to pay twice a year and also for calculating the DA value the percentage increase in the 12 monthly average of All India Consumer Price Index (base 1960). Also the base year was (1982=100) as the base year.
  • In 5th Pay Commission, the DA was decided based on (1982=100) as the base year.
  • In 6th Pay Commission, the DA was decided based on (2001=100) as the base year.
  • In 7th Pay Commission, should we expect to have the base year as (2011=100)?

When the DA calculation change happened from base year 1982 to base year as 2001, there were a steep increase in the DA percentage, this is because the cost of living has increased multifold and also various cities and items was also included while calculating the real DA.

So, what’s been recommend in the 7th CPC Report

Keeping in mind that the present formulation of DA has worked well over the years, and there are no demands for its alteration, the Commission recommends continuance of the existing formula and methodology for calculating the Dearness Allowance.

and also check out the gazette notification changes where the linking factor has been included as on AICPIN value as 2016.


Though in (2001=100) the linking factor was 4.63, this lead to the calculation of DA with the average index as 115.76 as per 2005. For example, (2005 , 12 Month Average Index – 536, so the linking factor as per record was 4.63).
All India and Centre-wise Linking factors between New Series of Consumer Price Index Numbers for Industrial Workers on base 2001 = 100 and the previous series on base 1982=100 (General Index).


As you all now understand that the linking factor play a major role in getting the DA value, but the linking factor for year 2016 .

I was not able to find this data in Labour Bureau . We assume that if the linking factor of 2016 used, then we expect to get a higher DA percentage (assumption). This means it would be a real DA value as it would include various cities and the current inflation and CPI.

We hope that when the results are out they would be using the linking factor of 2016 as the gazette notification has this mentioned. Normally the DA announcement is release in September 1st week or 2nd week and hope this is announced shortly.

Counting of Training period for IPO Examination - Clarification



Whether training period counted for IPO examination?

Answer is YES.


Government of India’s Orders No. 16 below FR. 9(6) reads:

Period of training before appointment to be treated as ‘duty’ for eligibility to sit for departmental examinations:

       It has been decided that in all cases where pre-service training is considered necessary before actual appointment to the post, the period spent by an officer on training immediately before such appointment would count as qualifying service for the purpose of eligibility for appearing in Departmental examinations, even if the officer is not given the scale of pay of the post but only a nominal allowance.

     Hence the candidates are requested to submit their application before the last date (30.09.2016) mentioning the period of training in the application form.
