The Cabinet Secretary
Government of India
Cabinet Secretariat, Rashtrapati Bhawan,
New Delhi – 110001  

Sir,

Sub: -  Declaration of assets and liabilities by Govt. Employees - exhibiting the details of movable assets in the website - regarding.

All the Central Govt. employees, as per the latest order of the Department of Personnel & Training (DOP&T) have to declare their assets and liabilities, both movable and immovable, as well as their spouses and dependents latest by 15th December 2014. All these informations would be then be put up by the respective ministries on their website accessible to everyone.

A large number of Central Govt. Employees have expressed their fear that putting up details of movable assets such as jewellery and cash in hand and bank would pose a security threat to them and their dependents, leave their children vulnerable to kidnapping and ransom demands.

There are various sources the Government employees would have accumulated wealth such as gift from parents, grandparents property, self-earning, wife-side property, or children’s contribution etc. Putting this information in the public domain would leave them and their family members vulnerable.

It is therefore requested that necessary action may be taken in this regard, so that all such information as stated above shall not be displayed on public domain.

                                                                                                        Yours faithfully,

                                                                                                         (M. Krishnan)

Lokpal and Lokayukta Act : Govt. may withhold cash, jeweliery details in Public Domain.

0 comments




NEW DELHI: In what could bring relief to nearly five million Central government employees, the Narendra Modi government has decided to amend the Lokpal and the Lokayukta Act to give itself a statutory power to withhold certain information from the public. 

All Central staff, as per the latest order of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), have to declare their assets and liabilities, both movable and immovable, as well as those of their spouses and dependents latest by September 15. All these information would then be put up by the respective ministries on their website accessible to everyone. 

A number of representations received by the government from officials expressed fear that putting details of movable assets such as jewellery and cash in hand and bank would pose a security threat to them and their dependents, leave their children vulnerable to kidnapping and ransom demands. For instance, an official said he has put all savings in general provident fund which has accumulated to Rs 75 lakhs over a period of time. Putting this information in the public domain would leave him and his family members vulnerable. 

Sources said the amendments proposed only gives the government the statutory power to withhold information related to officials' movable assets only, such as his cash in hand or bank and jewellery owned by him or his family members. The government will not be empowered to hold back information on immovable assets: house or land owned by him. 

The amendment also makes it clear that it will have no impact on the current asset declaration guidelines. The officials will have to continue declaring all their assets - movable and immovable as per the previous directive. Only difference the proposed amendment will make is to ensure certain information is not made public. 

The DoPT is working on the proposed amendment and has already taken a view from the law ministry to bring in the required changes. Any fresh amendment will not impact the current declaration deadline of September 15 which is applicable for all employees. 

Once these declarations are received by the government, it is for the respective ministries to put them up on its website accessible to all, except those related to the movable assets for which an amendment is required to implement it.

Release of additional installment of Dearness Allowance to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief to pensioners due from 01.07.2014



The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval for the release of an additional installment of Dearness Allowance (DA) to Central Government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners with effect from 01.07.2014. This is an increase of seven percent over the existing rate of 100 percent of the Basic Pay/Pension, to compensate for price rise. 

The increase is in accordance with the accepted formula, which is based on the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission. The combined impact on the exchequer on account of both Dearness Allowance and Dearness Relief would be of the order of approximately Rs. 7691 crore per annum and Rs.5127 crore respectively in the financial year 2014-2015 (i.e. for a period of eight months from July, 2014 to February, 2015). 



NEWS FROM CIRCLE UNION.

Sept.04,2014:-

CENTRAL GOVT  CONSIDERS  TO AMEND  LOKPAL & LOKAYUKTAS ACT 2013  TO  SAFEGUARD  EMPLOYEES  FROM  SECURITY  THREATS : EFFORTS  AND  THOUGHTS  OF  WEST  BENGAL  GROUP-C  CIRCLE  UNION  IS  PROVED  JUSTIFIED
   
    As the department has directed all employees to furnish all immovable and movable assets of entire family including cash in hand, deposited cash in Bank or P.O. savings accounts, fixed deposits, jewellery etc., for displaying these information in departmental website as per the provisions of the above Acts, a panic prevailed among all employees regarding security. There are enough possibilities for using these information by miscreants for extortion, demanding ransom by kidnapping etc.

      Our Circle Union realised the threat of the situation and sent an e-mail to P3 CHQ on 21.8.2014 expressing our concern over the issue. The text of the e-mail was :
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dear Comrade,
                          You must be aware of the fact that our department has already circulated a 6-page proforma for declaration of assets and liabilities by staff, their spouses and dependent children, as required under Section 44(2) of Lokpal and Lokayukt Act 2013. These information will be made available in the Public Domain of the departmental website as per the provisions of the Act.

         We had a discussion in the Circle Union regarding this. Our comrades are anxious over the issue of security once entire assets aredisplayed in public domain. Everyone is apprehending threat to security as any miscreant would have easy access to such information, and especially in West Bengal, where now it is the hegemony of miscreants for ransom and extortion even by the local clubs to extract money, none would be spared.

         We need to know whether the CHQ or the Federation has pondered over this aspect of the situation and thought of any remedy. As this is an Act now, no local or departmental remedy is feasible. Can we seek a minimum protection of these information in the departmental website under user id and password? The password may then be supplied to Lokpal Officers also.

         Kindly intimate us the stand and thinking of the CHQ and Federation / Confederation on it. We shall decide our stand upon that.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     We are happy to see a news item appearing in today's 'TIMES OF INDIA' (Kolkata edition) that DoPT has also received various apprehensions from different sources and the Central Govt is seriously considering to amend the Act for not making information pertaining to movable assets available in public domain (departmental website). The scanned copy of the news item is reproduced below(please CLICK on the image to enlarge)
   If this amendment is made, we have to furnish all assets alright, but movable assets will not be available in the website for any public. We welcome the decision of the Govt and request for immediate process for the amendment.

      Meanwhile, West Bengal Circle Unions are going to issue a letter shortly to the Circle Administration for not being hyperactive to upload everything in public domain, and also to the CHQ, Federation and Confederation requesting to take this up with Postal Directorate and DoPT as early as possible.

       Please spread this news among our comrades.

Govt to increase dearness allowance by 7 Percent-- Press News.

“The average rate of retail inflation for industrial workers from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 works out to be 7.25 per cent. Thus the Central government will hike dearness allowance for it employees by 7 per cent,” an official said.
He said the Finance Ministry will now put a Cabinet proposal for approval of 7 per cent DA hike from July 1 this year as the revised Consumer Price Index-Industrial Workers data for June was released by Labour Ministry on Saturday.
With increase in DA, the pensioners will also gain as the benefit provided to them as dearness relief will be hiked to 107 per cent of basic pay.
The previous UPA government had increased DA to 100 per cent from 90 per cent with effect from January 1, 2014, on February 28 on the basis of agreed formula for revision of the allowance.
However, the central government employees’ union is not very enthused by the 7 per cent hike in the dearness allowance as their long pending demand of merger of DA with basic pay has not been given heed by 7th Pay Commission and the government.
“The erosion of value of wages is unbearable at 50 per cent dearness allowance. Now it will be 107 per cent. It is high time to merge DA with basic pay to provide relief to employees,” Confederation of Central Government Employees’ President KKN Kutty told PTI.
“We had summited our memorandum in this regard to 7th Pay Commission. They forwarded it to Central Government. We have apprised about the issue to the newly elected NDA government.
But no decision has been taken so far,” he said.
With merger of DA with basic pay, the salary and allowances paid in proportion of basic pay are increased. As per earlier practise DA was merged with basic pay once it breached 50 per cent mark. But the 6th Pay Commission has disallowed that.
