MRP of most widely used complete knee implant (Cobalt-Chromium) has been fixed at Rs 54,720 plus GST from earlier average MRP of Rs 1,58,324 MRP of special metal titanium and oxidised zirconium has been fixed at Rs 76,600 plus GST,      NEW DELHI: After coronary stents, the government on Wednesday fixed a price range for knee implants from Rs 54,000 to Rs 1.14 lakh, nearly 70 per cent lower than most surgeries currently cost.With private hospitals reportedly charging exorbitant rates, the government capped the maximum retail price of the knee implants, a move that will save patients an estimated Rs 1,500 crore annually."Government will not remain a mute spectator and will not allow this illegal and unethical profiteering," Chemicals and Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar told a news briefing. The price in case of specialised implants for cancer and tumour has been sharply cut to Rs 1,13,950 from the current prices of Rs 4-9 lakh. There are 1.5 crore to 2 crore patients who require knee implant surgery. Every year 1.2 lakh to 1.5 lakh knee surgeries takes place in India, according to the government. It is estimated by World Health Organization (WHO) that by 2020, osteoarthritis is going to be the fourth largest cause of immobility globally, Kumar informed.

The government had in February slashed the maximum price of life-saving heart stents implants by up to 85 per cent by capping them at Rs 7,260 for bare metal ones and Rs 29,600 for drug eluting variety.

Earlier, the average maximum retail price (MRP) for BMS was Rs 45,000 and for DES, it was Rs 1.21 lakh.Ananth Kumar said today's decision comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced from the Red Fort on the Independence Day that prices of knee surgery would be brought down.Earlier this month, the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority had stated that the average trade margin on orthopaedic knee implants were found to be as high as 313 per cent.

"After cardiac stents, we have now decided to bring all kinds of knee implants under price control. In our country 1.5 to 2 crore people suffer from knee problems, who need health assistance," Kumar said."The government will not be a mute spectator to illegal and unethical profiteering," he added.

"Today across the country, private hospitals have increased prices of knee implant surgeries. They are indulging in unethical profiteering. To stop this and give relief to patients, we have taken this decision," he said. The decision has been taken keeping people's interest and health security of the nation into consideration, Kumar said.

The minister warned of stringent action against hospitals, importers, retailers if they charged in excess of the MRP saying that the government would recover excess profit from such knee implants with 18 per cent interest and may also cancel licences of hospitals.

Asked whether industry would be able to recover their costs under the new prices, the minister said: "The MRP has been fixed after taking into account the landed cost and there will be comfortable margins for the industry."

Reacting to the development, medical device industry body MTaI said MTaI is reviewing the order from NPPA.

Under the new price regime, the MRP of most widely used complete knee implant (Cobalt-Chromium) has been fixed at Rs 54,720 plus GST, a reduction of 65 per cent from earlier average MRP of Rs 1,58,324. This particular type of knee implant has around 80 per cent market share.

The new MRP of special metal titanium and oxidised zirconium has been fixed at Rs 76,600 plus GST, down 69 per cent from an average rate of Rs 2,49,251 earlier.


High flexibility implant will now cost Rs 56,490 plus GST, down 69 per cent from average MRP of Rs 1,81,728 earlier.


Special metal and high flexibility knee implants account for another 17 per cent of the market.


Revision implants for second surgery, which patients normally need after 10 years, will now cost Rs 1,13,950 plus, lower by 59 per cent from average MRP of Rs 2,76,869.


Lastly, the MRP of specialised implants for cancer and tumour has been fixed at Rs 1,13,950 which used to be priced around Rs 4-9 lakh.

Himachal approves additional health cover for senior citizens
The Himachal Pradesh government on Saturday approved additional health insurance cover for senior citizens to provide easy access to curative geriatric healthcare services.
 
This would provide an additional coverage of Rs 30,000 to those enrolled under the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY), a government spokesperson told IANS.
 
He said the cabinet, presided over by Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, took a decision in this regard.
 
The spokesperson said each beneficiary under the Senior Citizen Health Insurance Scheme would get cashless treatment in any of the RSBY-empanelled hospitals.
 
At present, there are 1,30,587 senior citizens enrolled under RSBY in the state.
 
Meanwhile, in a relief to hydro power companies, the cabinet gave its approval to reduce the capacity addition charges from Rs 20 lakh to Rs 1 lakh per MW or the upfront premium quoted, whichever is higher for those projects whose installed capacity after capacity enhancement is more than 5 MW.
 
The spokesperson said this provision would be applicable only to those projects where revised capacity agreements for enhancement of capacity have not been signed and for all projects which will go in for capacity enhancement after the notification of this provision.
 
To help the small hydro producers, the cabinet decided that the state electricity board would buy power from the projects up to 100 KW capacity and the royalty rates for these projects will be two per cent for the first 12 years, 12 per cent from 13 to 30 years and 18 per cent from 31 to 40 years.

Payment of interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments through Savings Account-Priti Saini Monday 7th August


F. No. 1/3/2017-NS
Ministry of Finance
Department of Economic Affairs
(Budget Division)
North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 3 .8.2017
Office Memorandum
Subject: Payment of interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments through Savings Account.
The undersigned is directed to refer to DoP’s letter No. 113-02/2015-SB dated 7.6.2017 on the subject and to state that the matter has been examined in this  Department and the following decisions have been taken:
(i) Accounts for the purpose of crediting interest/maturity value of all accounts of all Small Savings Instruments [except existing Post Office Savings Account (POSA)] and Small Savings accounts already linked to POSAS as on 31.7.2017 shall be Opened automatically as Basic Savings Account (zero balance account) with Specific coding “Interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments”.
However, only one basic savings account shall be opened for one person and it shall be linked with CIF or/and Aadhaar. These are not normal POSA accounts, as these can be opened on zero balance for purposes such as MGNREGS etc. Interest on these accounts with this coding will be paid at POSA rates. Since some movement to Senior Citizens’ Welfare Fund (SCWF) could happen from these Basic Savings (Zero Balance) accounts with coding “Interest and maturity value of Small Savings Instruments”, DoP may make suitable electronic tracking of the maturity date of various instruments credited into this account, in order to move correct amounts to SCWF on appropriate dates.
(ii) The Department of Posts shall not open normal Post Office Savings Accounts only for the purpose of crediting interest/maturity value of Small Savings Instruments even if the customer is willing to do so.  Interest/maturity value has to be credited to a Basic Savings Account only.
(iii) No agency charges shall be paid by the Ministry of Finance for such Basic savings accounts “opened for crediting interest and maturity value of Small Savings instruments, as these are opened only for administrative ease.
(iv) The client may be kept informed of the movement of amounts into Basic Savings account at the time of maturity. These facilitate electronic transactions and discourage cash transactions. The client can withdraw the amount through ATM cards and need not approach the office for withdrawal.
(v) As soon as Reserve Bank of India permits NEFT and RTGS facility to DoP with other banks, Department of Posts shall credit interest and maturity value of instruments into ‘the savings account of the customer’s choice’ through these electronic modes, irrespective of whether that savings account is with DoP or any other bank. The need of opening Basic Savings Account would cease in those cases where the depositor has an existing saving account with a Bank.
2. This has the approval of Joint Secretary (Budget).

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) - bunching of stages in the revised pay structure under Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

With reference to the subject mentioned above and in continuation of this Department's OM of even number dated 07.09.2016 and 13.06.2017, detailed instructions are hereby being issued on the application of the benefit on account of bunching of stages while fixing the pay in the revised pay structure as a response to a large number of references received from Ministries/Departments.

2. The provisions giving effect to the recommendations of the 7th CPC on extending the benefit on account of bunching were notified vide DoE OM. dated 07.09.2016. Benefits on account of bunching have been extended during the initial fixation of pay in the revised pay structure while implementing the recommendations of earlier CPCs also. Bunching occurs in the fixation of pay when the pay at two or more consecutive stages in a Pay Scale/ Grade Pay in the pre revised scale get fixed at the same stage in the corresponding Pay Scale/ Level in the revised pay structure.

3. The modalities of determining the extent of bunching and the nature of benefits to be extended on account thereof, based on the recommendations of the CPCs, have differed across different Pay Commission periods. While the 5th CPC recommended that benefits be extended when more than four stages get bunched, the 6th CPC recommended that benefits be extended when two or more stages get bunched. The fitment tables drawn by the 6th CPC and notified by the Government subsequently provided for the benefit of bunching only when more than two stages were bunched. As regards the benefits to be extended on account of bunching, the 5th CPC recommended benefit of one increment for every four consecutive stages bunched, the 6th CPC recommended benefit of one increment for every two consecutive pay stages bunched. For HAG scales, however, benefit of one increment was given at each of the pay stages in the 6th CPC pay structure.

4. In terms of the DoE OM. dated 07.09.2016 based on the 7th CPC recommendations, bunching occurs when two or more stages get bunched and benefit of one increment is to be given for every two stages bunched. These provisions are to be applied while revising the pay from the 6th CPC regime to the 7th CPC regime. In the 6th CPC pay structure, about 35 pay scales existing in the 5th CPC pay structure were replaced by a system of running pay bands recommended by the 6th CPC. The 6th CPC pay structure consisted of 19 grades spread across four distinct pay bands and 4 distinct scales including two fixed scales. The 6th pay structure being replaced by the 7th CPC recommended Pay Matrix, thus, consists of 4 Pay Bands with 15 levels of Grade Pay, along with 4 standalone scales, viz., HAG scale, HAG+ scale, Apex scale (fixed) and the scale of Cabinet Secretary (fixed).

5. While in the 5th CPC structure, the stages in every pay scale were well defined, the stages were not well defined in the 6th CPC structure. The pay was to be fixed in the running Pay Band by rounding off to the next higher multiple of 10. Every multiple of 10 was a pay stage in the 6th CPC regime. However, all consecutive 10 rupee stages for any Grade Pay cannot be taken as consecutive stages for the purpose of bunching in reference to the 7th CPC recommendations as is also clear from the illustration contained in para 5.1.37 of the 7th CPC Report. Based on the illustration contained in para 5.1.37 of the 7th CPC Report, Department of Expenditure’s OM. dated 07.09.2016 provided that a difference of at least 3%, the rate of annual increment, in the 6th CPC pay structure was essential for counting of two stages. The 6th CPC had replaced the system of equidistant pay stages in a pay scale based on equal annual increments in the 5th CPC regime by a system of annual increment of 3% on the sum of pay in the running pay band and the Grade Pay which was to be added to the running pay as increment. Therefore, the pay stages in any given Grade Pay were specific to an employee and depended upon the initial fixation of pay in that Grade Pay. As a result, the amount of increment earned in the same Grade Pay would differ in the same Pay Scale/ Grade Pay not only between different employees but also across years for the same employee. To illustrate, an employee whose pay was fixed at Rs 46,100 in GP of 8700 in PB-4 would have the first annual increment of Rs 1390 which would be added to his running pay in the Pay Band, another employee whose pay initially was fixed at Rs 46,400 in the same Grade Pay would have the first annual increment of Rs 1400. In such a scenario where the pay stages are specific to the employee, it is not possible to arrive at universal pay stages for the purpose of determining the extent of bunching. Therefore, for the purpose of determining the extent of bunching in a system of running pay bands, the consecutive pay stages that need to be considered are the pay stages which are specific to the employee.

6. In the 5th CPC structure, the maximum and the minimum of every pay scale were well defined. In the 6th CPC structure, Entry Pay was separately notified for most Grade Pay levels to govern the entry pay of direct recruits in that level. The pay of those moving from a lower grade to a higher one on promotion was regulated in terms of provisions contained in Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. As such, the Entry Pay notified for a given Pay Scale/ Grade Pay is the effective minimum of that Grade Pay for direct recruits. For an employee getting promoted, the sum of the minimum of the relevant Pay Band and the Grade Pay is the effective minimum pay. The 7th CPC, in its Report, has commented that this led to many situations where direct recruits drew higher pay as compared to personnel who reached that stage through promotion. Demands were received by the 7th CPC from many staff associations and employees for removal of this disparity which the 7th CPC refers to as differential entry pay.

7. In the revised dispensation for pay fixation in the New Pay Structure as recommended by the 7th CPC, direct recruits shall start at the minimum pay corresponding to the level to which recruitment is made, which will be the first cell of each level. For those promoted from the previous level, the fixation of pay in the new level will depend on the pay they were already drawing in the previous level. The pay, however, cannot be less than the first stage of the relevant level. While enumerating the benefits of migrating to the new system at para 5.1.47 of the 7th CPC Report, it has been stated that ‘the issue of differential entry pay has been resolved’. At para 5.1.36 of the 7th CPC Report it has also been mentioned that rationalization has been done with utmost care to ensure minimum bunching at most levels. Rationalization has been done by the 7th CPC through the Index of Rationalisation (IoR) which has been multiplied with the Entry Pay in the 6th CPC regime to arrive at the first cell of each level. With the Entry Pay along with IOR being used as the determiner of the first cell, pay stages below the Entry Pay have been consciously brought up to the level of Entry Pay and its corresponding pay stage in the revised pay structure. As a result, all pay stages below the Entry Pay in any Level will, on re-fixation, converge to the first pay stage in that level. As this convergence takes place on account of a conscious decision of the 7th CPC intrinsic to the architecture of the Pay Matrix by indicating the Entry Pay as the starting point of each Level, benefit on account of bunching cannot be extended with reference to pay stages lower than the Entry Pay indicated by the 7th CPC for that level in the Pay Matrix. Extending the benefit of bunching with reference to pay stages below the entry pay will perpetuate the difference in pay on account of differential Entry Pay which was addressed by the 7th CPC.

8. Based on the above, it is clarified that the following shall be kept in view while determining the extent of bunching as also the benefits to be extended on account of bunching at the time of initial fixation of pay in the 7th CPC pay structure:

(i) Benefit on account of bunching is to be extended when two or more stages get bunched.

(ii) Benefit of one increment is to be extended on account of bunching of every two consecutive stages.

(iii) As stipulated in MoF OM dated 07.09.2016, a difference of 3% to be reckoned for determination of consecutive pay stages, specific to each employee.

(iv) All pay stages lower than the Entry Pay in the 6th CPC pay structure as indicated in the Pay Matrix contained in the 7th CPC Report are not to be taken into account for determining the extent of bunching.

9. All Ministries/ Departments are advised to review all cases wherein benefit on account of bunching has been extended in terms of this Department’s OM dated 07.09.2016 and to re-fix the pay in terms of the instructions contained herein.

Eligibility of divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification regarding. dt : 19.7.17


 G No. 1/13/09-P&PW (E)

Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare

3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan,
Khan Market, New Delhi,
19th July, 2017.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM
Sub: Eligibility of divorced daughters for grant of family pension - clarification regarding. 
Provision for grant of family pension to a widowed/divorced daughter beyond the age of 25 years has been made vide OM dated 30.08.2004. This provision has been included in clause (iii) of sub-rule 54 (6) of the CCS (Pension), Rules, 1972. 

2. As indicated in Rule 54(8) of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972, the turn of unmarried children below 25 years of age comes after the death or remarriage of their mother/father, i.e., the pensioner and his/her spouse. Thereafter, the family pension is payable to the disabled children for life and then to the unmarried/widowed/divorced daughters above the age of 25 years. 


3. It was clarified, vide this department Office Memorandum of even number, dated 11th September, 2013, that the family pension is payable to the children as they are considered to be dependent on the Government servant/pensioner or his/her spouse. A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents. Therefore, only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or his/her spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension. If two or more children are eligible for family pension at that time, family pension will be payable to each child on his/her turn provided he/she is still eligible for family pension when the turn comes. 

4. It was clarified that a daughter if eligible, as explained in the preceding paragraph, may be granted family pension provided she fulfils all eligibility conditions at the time of death/ineligibility of her parents and still on the date her turn to receive family pension comes. Accordingly, divorced daughters who fulfil other conditions are eligible for family pension if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents. 


5. This department has been receiving grievances from various quarters that the divorce proceedings are a long drawn procedure which take many years before attaining finality. There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of a daughter of a Government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life time of one or both of them but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority. 

6. The matter has been examined in this department in consultation with Department of Expenditure and it has been decided to grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed in a competent court during the life-time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death – provided the claimant fulfils all other conditions for grant of family pension under rule 54 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972. In such cases, the family pension will commence from the date of divorce. 

7. This issues with the concurrence of Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, vide their ID No. 1(11)/EV/2017, dated 7th July, 2017.
