Respected Sir, 

          IP/ASP Association would like to invite your kind attention to its letters of even Nos. dated 1/9/2014, 13/10/2014, 12/1/2015, 26/3/2015 and 15/6/2015 regarding issue of combined All India Seniority List (Gradation list) of Inspector Posts from the year 2001 onwards.

Furthermore it is once again bring to your kind notice that as on date, 14 years combined seniority lists of Inspector Posts Cadre is not prepared and released by the Directorate. You may be agree that since last one decade this Association is requesting to issue seniority lists in phase manner and thereafter Directorate vide memo No. 9-09/2011-SPG dated 21/2/2014 has released seniority list of Inspector Posts cadre for the years 1998 and 1999 and vide memo No. 9-09/2011-SPG dated 18/12/2014 had issued only for the year 2000. It is sorry to mention here that since last one year there is no progress in this matter. The representations made by our few members are also neither resolved by Circles nor by Directorate. It is learnt that few circles have yet not submitted their circle seniority lists to Directorate despite issue of reminders.

It is therefore urged to call the concerned officers of the circles at Directorate immediately with related records and get the pending lists prepared / clear their doubts if any on the spot and issue the pending seniority lists in phase manner only to avoid further complications if any.   

A positive action and line in reply is requested.                                       
           Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)

Parliamentarians set for a massive pay hike

MP salaries to double?

Five years after parliamentarians gave themselves more than 300% salary hike, the NDA government seems to be inclined for another steep rise in the lawmakers’ salary.

Sources said the government is considering a proposal to provide MPs a basic salary of Rs 1 lakh per month, a 100% hike from the current Rs 50,000. A proposal of the parliamentary affairs ministry suggests that their constituency allowance and office allowance too—currently Rs 45,000 each— may be doubled.

Ironically, the government, a few months ago, had rejected a parliamentary panel’s proposal to give a 70% hike to the MPs salary. The panel, led by BJP MP Yogi Adityanath, had also demanded a slew of benefits like more air tickets and soft loans for cars.

The proposal also comes amid criticism in the social media about the disruptions and nonfunctioning of Parliament.

Recently, Delhi government gave the MLAs of the national capital a steep hike in salaries and allowances. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had justified the hike and even said that Prime Minister and other MPs too, must get a salary hike.

Govt. considering gratuity for NPS subscribers

Central Govt. is considering payment of gratuity for employees who joined Central Govt. service after 31.12.2003 and covered under National Pension System (Popularly known as New Pension Scheme). Till now they are not covered under the existing gratuity scheme. Only in exceptional cases like death in service, retirement on invalidation etc., provisional gratuity is being paid vide order dated 05.05.2009 as an additional benefit.

Minister of State for Finance, Mr Jayant Sinha informed in parliament that Govt. is considering the benefit of gratuity to extend for the NPS subscribers too.
