2.                     Now Punjab Government has modified policy instructions in view of various developmental schemes of the State and also to avail maximum finance from the banks.

3.                     Accordingly as per the fresh guidelines, the individual Public Sector Undertakings or agencies of the State have the freedom for placement of temporary surplus funds with any Financial Institutions or instrument, subject to the following basic cannons of fund management:

i)          The deployment of funds in particular institution or instrument should provide the best returns possible under the circumstances; and

ii)         Such deployment should ensure that the funds are safe.

4.                     Based on these principles, PSUs/Boards Authorities and other Autonomous bodies should decide the Institution and instrument in which they want to deploy their surplus funds.

6.                     While making investment in Institutions offering equivalent terms you should follow proper transparent procedure to select the right one.

                                                                                       Yours faithfully,

Para 6.16

Subject:-        Points to be considered before recommending the State Govt. Guarantee.

 

                        Kindly refer to subject cited above.

2.                     In this regard it is informed that Govt. of Punjab Department of Finance has various instructions regarding the State Govt. Guarantee from time to time. A check list has been prepared on the basis of these instructions (copy enclosed). It is requested that in future all cases of State Govt. Guarantee may be sent to this Directorate for comments after giving detailed reply of each point mentioned in the check list by the quarter concerned keeping in view the earlier instructions issued by the Department of Finance.

POINTS TO BE CONSIDERED BEFORE RECOMMENDING THE STATE GOVT. GUARANTEE

PSUs

1.    The Guarantee should cover only the principal portion of the loan.

2.    It has to be established that Public Interest is served such a guarantee.

3.    Loan proposed to be raised along with the outstanding loans does not exceeds any borrowing limit which may have been prescribed.

4.    The schemes for which the loan is being raised are economically viable.

5.    Financial position of the undertaking is sound and it is in position to discharge the liability.

6.    The latest position regarding repayment of all the previous loans raised from the Govt. or from Financial Institutions is to be checked for guarantee.

7.    Guarantee on Long term debt to eighty percent of revenue receipts of previous year, guarantee on short term debt to be given only for working capital or food credit in which case this must be fully backed by physical stocks.

8.    Recommendations of the Disinvestment Commission must be kept in view at the time of recommending the Govt. Guarantee.

9.    The Guarantee commission/fee shall be charged at the rate fixed by the Finance Department from time to time.

10.  It is also advised to Finance Department to ensure that the Guarantee Fee on earlier Guarantees has been paid to the Government or not.

a.    Co-operative Societies

11.  In the case of Co-operative, a report from the Registrar should be obtained regarding the borrowing capacity of the Society, its audit classification and whether it has complied with the audit points raised. A condition should also be provided in the bye-laws of the Society that it shall set apart from its profits every year, and adequate Debt Redemption Reserve which shall be invested in Government Securities and which shall not be utilized for any other purpose without the permission of the Government.

a.    Private Parties

12.  No guarantee will normally be given for any private party or body. If in case Government guarantee is insisted upon by lending institutions without any option to resort to other methods of securing guarantee, the proposals may be considered on merits, applying the guidelines already specified above before submission to Finance Department. In addition, the following conditions would also be imposed:-

a)    It has to be established that public interest is served by such a guarantee.

b)    A counter guarantee from a Bank to the full amount guaranteed for should b e furnished by the party.

c)    The guarantee commission should be charged and paid in advance.

d)    The Government would reserve the right to post their representative on the Board of Management, to get the accounts audited on behalf of Government and to obtain and scrutinize accounts and reports periodically.

            ADVICE OF INSTITUTIONAL FINANCE & BANKING, PUNJAB

1.    The capital adequacy norms representing Risk Weighted Assets should also be considered before issuing guarantee by Government.

                        I am directed to address you on the subject noted above and to say that at present the policy regarding grant of employment in the State Services, Class-III and Iv on compassionate grounds is mainly contained in circular letter No.11/27/94-2PPI/2364, dated 5.2.1996. This policy was framed on the basis of the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India delivered in the case of ‘Umesh Kumar/Nagpal Versus State of Haryana and others (1994)4 S.C. cases (138)’. The Apex Court held that the object of compassionate appointments is to enable the penurious family of the deceased employee to tide over the sudden financial crisis and not to provide employment. It was further held that mere death of an employee does not entitle his family to compassionate appointment. The authority concerned must consider as to whether the family of the deceased employee is unable to meet the financial crisis resulting from the employee’s death. The offering compassionate appointments as a matter of course irrespective of the financial condition of the family of the deceased and making compassionate appointments in posts above Class-III and IV, is legally impermissible. The compassionate appointments can not be granted after a lapse of reasonable period, which must be specified in the rules. The consideration for such employment is not a vested right which can be exercised at any time in future. The object being to enable the family to get over the financial crisis which it faces at the time of death of the sole bread-winner, the compassionate employment can not be claimed and offered, whatever the lapse of time and after the crisis is over.

2.                     It has been considered appropriate that there is need to review the whole policy on compassionate appointments by taking a cue from the policy of Government of India and to impose strict conditions so that compassionate appointments are available only posts in various departments are consumed by these compassionate appointments considerably reducing vacancies for carrying out recruitments from the open market. This has a direct reflection on the efficiency and working of the departments as it restricts the Government for making selections from a wider choice of candidates. Imposition of a cap on compassionate appointments will also protect the legitimate right of young qualified persons who are waiting for their turn for being recruited in various departments of the Government for years.

3.                     The State Government has decided to review the policy on compassionate grounds strictly, on the decision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in the case of ‘Umesh Kumar Nagpal Versus State of Haryana’, referred as above. The Government has reconsidered all the earlier instructions issued from time to time on compassionate appointments and has decided to review the policy to provide the benefit only to deserving candidates as per directions of the Apex Court referred in Para-1 above.

4.                     Henceforth, the objective of the Scheme is limited to grant of appointment on compassionate grounds to persons who fail in the categories mentioned below:-

(1)     A dependent member of the family of a person (bread-winner) killed or 100% physically disabled in terrorist action or by security forces acting in aid of civil power, in the State;

(2)     A dependent member of the family of the deceased Government employee, who dies in harness;

(3)     Disabled Ex-Servicemen (fit for Civil Service);

(4)     A dependent member of the family of the Defence Services Personnel:

         (i)      killed in service, while performing duties; or

         (ii)     who are severely disabled and totally unfit for re-employment.

NOTE 1           Dependent Family Member’ means:-

(a)      Spouse; or

(b)      Son (including adopted son); or

(c)      Un-married Daughter (including adopted Daughter); or

(d)      Un-married Brother or Un-married Sister in the case of un-married Government Servant.

-- who was wholly dependent on the Government Servant/member of the Armed Forces at the time of his death in harness.

NOTE II           Government Servant’ for the purpose of these instructions means a Government Servant appointed on regular basis and not one working on daily wage or casual apprentice or adhoc or contract or re-employment or on 89 days basis.

NOTE III          Confirmed Work-Charged Staff’ will also be covered by the terms ‘Government Servant’ mentioned in Note II above.

NOTE IV         Service’ means a period prior to the date of superannuation. It does not include extension in service or re-employment after attaining the normal age of retirement in a civil post.

7.                     ELIGIBILITY

In case of reserved categories of SC/BC Widows the age relaxation may be allowed as per policy instructions issued from time to time. The lower age limit should, however, in no case be relaxed below 18 years of age in case of Group ‘C’ and below 16 years in case of Group ‘D’. However, the Administrative Department may relax upper age limit by 5 years in deserving cases.

NOTE              Age eligibility shall be determined with reference to the date of application and not the date of appointment.

(b)        No relaxation in educational qualification is permissible. However, for Group ‘D’ minimum 5th standard is necessary. For Group ‘C’ the appointing authority may temporarily relax the conditions for the passing of Punjabi Language for a period of six months.

(c)        Where a widow is appointed on compassionate Group ‘D’ post, she will be exempted from the requirement of possessing the educational qualifications prescribed in the relevant rules provided the duties of the post can be satisfactorily performed by her without possessing such educational qualification.

 

 

10.                   DETERMINATION/AVAILABILITY OF VACANCIES

(a)        Appointment on compassionate grounds should be made only on regular basis and that too only if regular vacancies meant for that purpose are available.

(b)        Compassionate appointments can be made upto a maximum of 5% of vacancies falling under direct recruitment quota in any Group ‘C’ or ‘D’ post. The appointing authority may hold back upto 5% of vacancies in the aforesaid categories to be filled by direct recruitment through Subordinate Services Selection Board or otherwise so as to fill such vacancies by appointment on compassionate grounds. A person selected for appointment on compassionate grounds should be adjusted in the recruitment roster against the appropriate category viz. SC/ST/OBC/General depending upon the category to which he belongs. For example, if he belongs to SC category he will be adjusted against the SC reservation point, if he is ST/OBC he will be adjusted against ST/OBC point and if he belongs to General Category he will be adjusted against the vacancy point meant for General Category.

(c)        The ceiling of 5% of direct recruitment vacancies for making compassionate appointment should not be exceeded by utilizing any other vacancy e.g. sports quota vacancy.

(d)        Employment under the scheme is not confined to the Department/office in which deceased Government servant had been working. Such an appointment can be given anywhere under the Government of Punjab depending upon the availability of a suitable vacancy meant for the purpose of compassionate appointment.

(e)        If sufficient vacancies are not available in any particular office to accommodate the person in the waiting list for compassionate appointment, it is open to the Administrative Department/office (through Administrative Department) to take up the matter with the Re-deployment Cell in the Department of Personnel to adjust the candidate in other Departments/offices of the Government of Punjab.

11.                   WIDOW APPOINTED ON COMPASSIONATE GROUNDS GETTING REMARRIED

 

A widow appointed on compassionate grounds will be allowed to continue in service even after re-marriage.

12.                   WHERE THERE IS AN EARNING MEMBER

(a)        In deserving cases even where there is already an earning member may be considered for compassionate appointment with prior approval of the Secretary of the Department concerned, who before approving such appointment will consult the Department of Personnel and satisfy himself that grant of compassionate appointment is justified having regard to number of dependents, assets and liabilities left by the Government servant, income of the earning member as also his liabilities including the fact that the earning member is residing with the family of the Government servant and whether he should not be a source of support to other members of the family.

(b)        In case where any member of the family of the deceased servant is already in employment and is not supporting the other members of the family of the Government servant, extreme caution has to be observed in ascertaining the economic distress of the members of the family of the Government servant so that the facility of appointment on compassionate ground is not circumvented and misused by putting forward the ground that the member of the family already employed is not supporting the family.

13.                   PROCEDURE

 (a)       The performa as in Annexure-I may be used by Departments/offices for ascertaining necessary information and processing the cases of compassionate appointment alongwith the documents as given in Annexure-II, and submitted to the Appointing Authority within a period of 6 months from the date of death or disability of a person/employee as the case may be. Appointment must be made within a period of one year within the Department and 2 years in other departments through Re-deployment Cell. Genuine belated requests with cogent reasons for compassionate appointment can be entertained only within a period of 5 years from the date of death or disability of the employee person with the special approval of the Personnel Department and Finance Department.

(b)        Department/office should depute any senior official to meet the members of the family of the Government servant in question immediately after his death to advise and assist them in getting appointment on compassionate grounds. The applicant should be called in person at the very first stage and advised in person about the requirements and formalities to be completed by him, within a period of 6 months.

(c)        All applications for appointment on compassionate grounds should be considered in the light of these instructions and appointment be made by the Appointing Authority in all Departments. To solve the complicated cases a Committee of 3 officers –one Chairman and 2 Members in the rank of Deputy Secretary/Director be constituted in each Department. The Committee may meet during the 2nd week of every month to consider cases received during the previous month. The applicant may also be granted personal hearing by the Committee, if necessary, for better appreciation of the facts of the case.

(d)        Recommendations of the Committee should be placed before the competent authority for a decision. If the competent authority disagrees with the Committee’s recommendations, the case may be referred to the next higher authority for a decision.

(e)        In case of non-availability of posts in the Department, the matter may be taken up with the Re-deployment Cell in Personnel Department which will adjudge the eligibility and suitability of the candidates in the meeting of the Committee already constituted for the purpose and recommend the names of the candidates to different departments for compassionate appointment.

14.                   UNDERTAKING

A Person appointed on compassionate grounds under the Scheme should give an undertaking in writing (as in Annexures) that he/she will maintain properly the other family members who were dependent on the Government servant/members of the Armed Forces in question and in case it is proved subsequently (at any time) that the family members are being neglected or are not being maintained properly by him/her, appointment may be terminated forthwith.

15.                   REQUEST FOR CHANGE IN POST/PERSON

When a person has been appointed on compassionate grounds to a particular post, the set of circumstances, which led to such appointment, should be deemed to have ceased to exist. Therefore:-

(a)          he/she should strive in his/her career like his/her colleagues for future advancement and any request for appointment to any higher post on considerations of compassion should invariably be rejected.

(b)          an appointment made on compassionate grounds can not be transferred to any other person and any request for appointment to any higher post on consideration of compassion should invariably be rejected.

16.                   SENIORITY

(a)        The interse seniority of persons appointed on compassionate grounds may be fixed with reference to their date of appointment. Their interpolation with the direct recruits/promotes may also be made with reference to their dates of appointment without disturbing the interse seniority of direct recruits/promotees.

(b)        Date of joining by a person appointed on compassionate grounds shall be treated as the date of his/her regular appointment.

17.                   GENERAL

(a)        Appointments made on grounds of compassion should be done in such a way that persons appointed to the post do have the essential educational and technical qualifications and experience required for the post consistent with the requirement of maintenance of efficiency of administration.

(b)        It is not the intention to restrict employment of a family member of the deceased Group ‘D’ Government servant to a Group ‘D’ post only. As such, a family member of such Group ‘D’ Government servant can be appointed to a Group ‘C’ post for which he/she is educationally qualified, provided a vacancy in Group ‘C’ post exists for this purpose.

(c)        Compassionate appointment should not be denied or delayed merely on the ground that there is reorganization on the Department/office. It should be made available to the person concerned if there is a vacancy meant for compassionate appointment and he or she is found eligible under the Scheme.

(d)        Requests for compassionate appointment consequent on death of Group ‘D’ staff may be considered with greater sympathy by applying relaxed standards depending on the facts and circumstances of the case.

(e)        Compassionate appointment will have precedence over absorption of surplus employees and regularization of daily wage/casual workers with/without temporary status.

18.                   These instructions shall come into force with immediate effect and may please be brought to the notice of all concerned.

                                                                                                            Yours faithfully,

Subject:-        Scheme for compassionate appointments-2002-Grant of employment in the State Services on compassionate grounds.

 

                        I am directed to address you on the subject noted above and to say that the Department of Personnel has framed a Scheme for compassionate appointments and circulated the same vide letter No.11/105/98-4PPII/14420-22 dated 21st November,2002.

2.                     In pursuance of the decision of Cabinet Sub Committee on Fiscal Management a complete ban on recruitment to the posts lying vacant at present and likely to fall vacant due to retirement or any other reasons was imposed. All such posts would be deemed to have been abolished forthwith. A post thus abolished can only be revived with the prior approval of the Council of Ministers after seeking advice of the Department of Finance. Any Budget provision made for these vacant posts during the current year may also be considered as dropped.

3.                     In view of the above decision of the Cabinet Sub Committee on Fiscal Management various Departments have sought clarification as to against which post compassionate can be made.

4.                     This issue has been examined in detail and it has been decided that firstly each department has to work out the details of the number of such compassionate appointees in each cadre to see whether the percentage is less than 5% and only then they should move a proposal to Finance Department for relaxation of the ban imposed to that extent, if the overall position in the department is also less than 5%.

                                                                                                            Yours faithfully,

Sir/Madam,

                        I am directed to refer to this Department’s policy instructions contained in letter No.11/105/98-4PP.II/14420, dated    21.11.2002, on the subject cited above. According to the provisions of para 9(b) of these instructions it was laid down that compassionate appointments can be made upto a maximum of 5% of vacancies falling under direct recruitment quota in any Group ‘C’ or ‘D’ post. The Appointing Authority may held back upto 5% of vacancies in the aforesaid categories to be filled by direct recruitment through Subordinate Services Selection Board or otherwise so as to fill such vacancies by appointing on compassionate grounds. A person selected for appointment on compassionate grounds should be adjusted in the recruitment roster against the appropriate category viz SC/ST/OBC/General depending upon the category to which he belongs.

2.                     The Government have reconsidered the above provisions of Para 9(b) of these instructions and have decided that the condition of 5% vacancies falling under direct recruitment quota in any Group ‘C’ or ‘D’ posts shall not be applicable in case of compassionate appointments in respect of the following categories:-

(a)        A dependent member of the family of a person (bread-winner) killed or 100% physically disabled in terrorist action or by security forces acting in aid of civil power, in the State.

(b)        A dependent member of the family of the deceased Government employee, who dies in harness.

3.                     You, are, therefore, requested to take necessary action for compassionate appointments with regard to above categories, accordingly.

4.                     These instructions may deem to have come into force w.e.f. 21st November, 2002.

                                                                                                            Yours faithfully,

(Personnel Policies Branch-II)

Subject:-        Grant of employment in the State Services on compassionate grounds-Policy regarding.

 

Sir/Madam,

                                    I am directed to refer to the subject noted above and to say that the Punjab Government issued policy instructions contained in letter No.11/105/98-4PP-II/14420 dated 21.11.2002, allowing compassionate appointments to the dependents of categories mentioned in para 3 of the Scheme. The condition of 5% cap imposed in para 9(b) of the policy was removed in letter No.11/105/98-4PP-II/2209 dated 5.2.2003. In the meanwhile, the Department of Finance had in letter No.6/139/2002-6FPPC/46 dated 2.01.2003 stipulated that compassionate appointments should be made only after the approval of Finance Department and the Council of Ministers. The State Government has now reconsidered the matter and decided as under:-

a)         Compassionate appointments may be permitted against the direct quota posts in Group ‘C’ and ‘D’ in pursuance of the provisions of the policy contained in letter dated 21.11.2002. However, 5% cap imposed earlier stands abolished. Where such appointments are made in pursuance of this policy, posts earlier abolished would stand automatically created to that extent.

b)         Such appointments may be permitted without awaiting finalization of the restructuring of Government Departments.

c)         Compassionate appointments made in line with this policy would not carry the pensioner benefits as present. The new contributory Scheme for pension, under formulation would be applicable in their cases. While issuing appointment letters, this condition will be specifically incorporated.

d)         The compassionate appointments are to be effected strictly according to the eligibility criteria laid down and are not to be treated as a matter of right. It is, therefore, imperative that all such cases are carefully scrutinized by appointing authorities before appointments are granted. Such appointments will be cleared by Committees, specifically constituted for this purpose as under:-

(i)      A committee headed by the Divisional Commissioner will scrutinize cases of all government employees whose cadre is controlled at district/divisional level. Representatives of the departments of Sainik Welfare and Welfare of Scheduled Castes will also be associated in the Committee.

(ii)      A Committee may similarly be set up in each department headed by the Administrative Secretary concerned, which would consider all other cases of compassionate appointment in their Departments.

(iii)     In the case of employees of the Secretariat and Financial Commissioner’s office, Committees will be set up headed by the Secretary Personnel and Financial Commissioner Revenue, respectively.

It is possible that some of these Committees may become over burdened. In such cases the administrative departments may take up the matter with the Chief Secretary for further delegations, where such need arises.

2.                       The compassionate appointments to the dependents of persons killed by the Terrorists/persons killed in 1984 Riots shall continue to be governed under the policy instructions issued by the Department of Relief & Resettlement, from time to time.

                                                                                                            Yours faithfully,

Sir/Madam,

                        I am directed to invite your attention to this department’s policy instructions No.11/105/98-4PP2/14420, dated 21.11.2002 and subsequent letters issued vide No.11/94/02-4PP2/650, dated 12.1.2004 and No.11/94/02-4PP2/8403, dated 2.4.2004 which contain guidelines for compassionate appointments in Group ‘C’ and ‘D’ State Services and to say that some departments have sought clarification whether such appointments can be made or not as the Election Code of Conduct is in force. In this connection the Department of Elections, Punjab, has advised that the departments should defer all such appointments till the completion of election process. It is, therefore, requested that further necessary action may be taken according to the advice of the Election Commission and no compassionate appointment be made till the completion of election process. Strict compliance be ensured.

                                                                                                            Yours faithfully,

GOVERNMENT OF PUNJAB

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE

(FINANCE PENSION POLICY & COORDINATION BRANCH)

 

Subject:-        Restructuring and re-organization of Government Departments.

                        With no major restructuring exercise of departments having been carried out, and most attempts being an exercise in the revival of vacant posts that stood abolished; it is felt that, there is a need of fresh guidelines for restructuring and reorganization of Government Departments. Kindly refer to this Department UO No.FD/DEFREI-02/670 dated 17.5.2002 and DO letter No.12/63/2003-5PP-2/2154 dated 10.2.2004 issued by the Chief Secretary to Government of Punjab for restructuring of Government Departments. Please note that following guidelines be kept in mind when forwarding cases to Department of Finance for restructuring and reorganization of Government Departments.

2.                     The departments/agencies should view the following objectives as a guide to the exercise of restructuring of each government departments/agency:

a.    Re-defining the role and mandate of the Department/Agency.

b.    Re-defining the scope of services provided.

c.    Defining and declaring the standards of service which are proposed to be achieved.

d.    Ensuring services delivery with greater efficiency and lower cost to the government/user.

e.    A new organizational chart clearly indicating shortened administrative processes with greater decentralization of powers and delegation of authority.

3.                     Each of the departments must ensure that it carries out the restructuring exercise in a manner that would necessarily demonstrate reduced time lags in its administrative processes, efficient use of human resources, multi-tasking, decentralization of functions and delegation of authority. While accountability is a desired objective, it cannot be a tool for centralization of authority and looped administrative processes. While presenting the proposal for restructuring the departments would ensure that the exercise does not merely turn out to be an effort where re-creation of abolished posts is sought based on old administrative norms, procedures and processes. The exercise should clearly demonstrate the restructuring element and in cases where temporary posts are being continued for the last five years or more they should either be considered for conversion into regular posts OR abolished in this restructuring exercise.

4.                     The Departments must submit their proposal containing the following along with the narratives explained in para 2 above:-

a.    An existing Organisation Chart of the Department along with sanctioned posts and vacancies at different levels.

b.    The proposed Organisation Chart after restructuring with the target to be achieved over a period of 5-15 years.

c.    Based on this Targeted Organisation Structure, the immediate requirement of redeployment, re-training, etc.

d.    Nil or minimum proposed recruitment after taking into account (b) & (c) above.

e.    A background note containing scope of duties, tasks of Department and work load norms, steps to increase productivity & introduce I.T., so as to justify staffing pattern proposed.

5.                     The proposal would be screened by a Committee of Officers comprising of the following:

                      i.        Chief Secretary                                                                      Chairman

                     ii.        Principal Secretary Finance                                       Member

                    iii.        Administrative Secretary of the Deptt.                                   Member

                   iv.        Head of the Department/MD/CEO of

the Organization.                                                                     Member

                    v.        Director Disinvestment                                                           Member

6.                     All proposals should be submitted to the Committee by 31.03.2010, thereafter, the department shall present a proposal to the CMM for consideration and approval after obtaining comments of Department of Personnel and Finance as per the Rules of Business.

Government of Punjab

Department of Finance

(Finance Pension Policy & Coordination Branch)

To

                        All Head of Departments,

                        Commissioners of Divisions,

                        Registrar, Punjab & Haryana High Court,

                        District & Session Judges, and

                        All the Deputy Commissioners in the State.

 

Subject:-          Introduction of a new restructured defined Contribution Pension Scheme for new entrants to Punjab Government Services.

 

Sir,

                        I am directed to refer to the State Government Notification No.8/1/2004-3FPII/2078 dated 2nd March, 2004 which was issued for amending the Rule 1.2 of Punjab Civil Services Rules Vol.-1, Part-1 to the effect that Government employees who are appointed to the posts of Categories (1) to (5) mentioned under the rule, on or after the 1st January, 2004 shall be governed by New Defined Contributory Pension Scheme. The salient features of this scheme are given as under:-

(1)          The new Pension Scheme will work on defined contribution basis and will have two tiers- Tier-I and II. Contribution to Tier-I is mandatory for all Government employees joining Government Service on or after 1.1.2004, whereas Tier-II will be optional and at the discretion of Government employees.

(2)          In Tier-I, all Government employees will have to make a contribution of 10% of his basic pay plus DA which will be deducted from their salary bill every month by the DDO/Head of Office concerned. The Government will make an equal matching contribution.

(3)          Tier-I contribution (and the investment returns) will be kept in a non-withdraw-able Pension Tier-I Account. Tier-II will be kept in a separate account that will be withdraw-able at the option of the Government employee. Government will not make any contribution to Tier-II Account.

(4)          The existing provisions of Defined Pensionary Benefits, Pension and GPF would not be available to new Government employees joining Government service on or after 1.1.2004.

(5)          In order to implement the Scheme, there will be a Central Record Keeping Agency and several Fund Managers to be appointed by the Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure to offer three categories of Schemes to Government employees viz. options A, B and C based on the ratio of investment in fixed income instruments and equities. An independent Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) will regulate and develop the pension market.

(6)          As an interim arrangement, till such time the Statutory PFRDA is set up, an interim, PFRDA has been appointed by issuing an executive order by Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs, Government of India.

(7)          Till the regular Central Record Keeping Agency and Pension Fund Managers are appointed by the Government of India, Ministry of Finance and the accumulated balances under each individual account are transferred to them, it has been decided that such amount representing the contributions made by the Government will be kept in the Public Account of India. This will be purely a temporary arrangement as announced by the Government.

(8)          Tier-II will not be made operative during the Interim period.

(9)          A Government employee can exit at or after the age of 58 years and 60 years in the case of Group-D employees from the Tier-I of the Scheme. At exit, it would be mandatory for him to invest 40% of pension wealth to purchase an annuity (from an IRDA regulated Life Insurance Company), which will provide for pension for the life time of the employee and his dependent parents/spouse. In the case of Government employees who leave the Scheme before attaining the age of 58 years and 60 years in the case of Group-D employees, the mandatory annuitisation would be 80% of the pension wealth.

(10)        The following are the guidelines for the implementation of New Defined Contributory Pension Scheme during the interim arrangement for the guidance of Head of Office’s/DDOs

(a)      The new pension scheme becomes operational with effect from 1.1.2004.

(b)      Contributions payable by the Government employees towards the scheme under Tier-I, i.e. 10% of the (Basic Pay+DA) will be recovered from the salary bills every month.

(c)      The scheme of voluntary contributions under Tier-II will not be made operative during the period of interim arrangement and therefore, no recoveries will be made from salaries of the employees on this account.

(d)      Recoveries toward Tier-I contributions will start from the salary of the month following the month in which the Government Employee has joined service. Therefore, no recovery will be effected for the month of Joining. For example, for employees joining service in the month of January, 2004, deductions towards Tier-I contribution will start from the salary bill of February 2004. No deduction will be made for his salary earned in January, 2004. Similarly, deductions for those joining service in the month of February, 2004 will start from the salary bill of March, 2004 and so on.

(e)      No deductions will be made towards GPF contribution from the Government Employees joining the service on or after 1.1.2004 as the GPF scheme is not applicable to them.

(f)       Pending formation of a regular Central Record Keeping Agency, Central Pension Accounting Office of Government of India, Ministry of Finance will function as the Central Record Keeping Agency for the above scheme.

(g)      Immediately on joining Government service, the Government employee will be required to provide particulars such as his name, designation, scale of pay, date of birth, nominee(s) for the fund, relationship of the nominee etc. in the prescribed form (Annexure-I). The DDO concerned will be responsible for obtaining this information from all Government employees covered under the new Pension Scheme. Consolidated information for all those who have joined service during the month shall be submitted by the DDO concerned in the prescribed format (Annexure-II) to his Head of Department by 7th of the following month. Annexure-I will be retained by the DDOs.

(h)      On receipt of Annexure-II from the DDO, HOD will a lot a unique 16 digit Permanent Pension Account Number (PPAN). The first four digits of this number will indicate the calendar year of joining Government service, the next digit indicates as to whether it is a Civil Service and the next six digits would represent the HOD code (which is used for the purpose of compiling monthly accounts), the last five digits will be the running serial number of the individual Government employee which will be allotted by the HOD concerned. HOD will allot the serial number pertaining to individual Government employee from ‘00001’ running from January to December of a calendar year. The following illustration may be followed:-
