Government sources told HT that the monthly pension for exMPs is likely to go up to ` 35,000 a month from ` 20,000 a month — a 75% hike. A major breakthrough in pensions for ex-MPs came under the first NDA government, led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee when they introduced pension for all MPs irrespective of their tenure. Earlier, only MPs who had completed a 5-year term were entitled to post-retirement benefits. The Modi government is also set to increase the rate of additional pension for each completed year in excess of five years. The centre is considering additional pension of ` 2,000 per month instead of the current rate of ` 1,500. In other words, if a parliamentarian has served for seven

Govt to Revive Spy Networks With Better Pay and Perks      {Hope Govt. will  similarly ask 7th CPC to rectify the anomalies created by 6th CPC & bureaucrats in case of other C.G.Pensioners& C.G.Employees also} NEW DELHI: The NDA government at the Centre is on a reform spree and topping its list are India’s intelligence agencies. Top sources said Union Home Ministry has prepared a proposal with the approval of  Prime Minister Narendra Modi  to  revisit  the salary  structure  and risk  allowance  of spies in Central Intelligence Agencies—Intelligence  Bureau  and R&AW—which was drastically reduced due to rampant red tapism plaguing the system.   It is learnt that an anomaly was introduced by bureaucrats in the 5th & 6th Pay Commission which made the spies no different from a clerk working in the ministerial cadre. The proposal suggests that “Intelligence has specific requirement and they should be treated as Special Cadre,” said a source, adding that

Modi to reach out to govt employees'-Courtesy Staff corner

12 Jul, 2014 10:40p.m. The Prime Minister has asked for an exhaustive Central database of all Central and state government employees. The creation of the database, which will have the phone numbers and email addresses of all employees, is already underway, and will be first used on Independence Day when Modi's speech is directly sent to the employees by mail and messages. The prime minister would like his maiden speech from the Red Fort to be directly communicated to one crore government employees, such as school teachers, village sarpanches, healthcare workers etc, in the farthest corners of the country. Most of these are not tech-savvy, Internet users and so frenetic efforts are under way to implement Modi's intent, said government sources. The government has therefore initiated the process of creating the first-ever countrywide database of central and state government employees and stakeholders. Cabinet secretary Ajit Seth is monitoring the creation of this databas

Plea for ‘no tax regime’ for pensioners

The Vellore Institute of Development Studies (VIDS) has urged the Central government to introduce a bold ‘No Tax Regime’ for all pensioners during the forthcoming Union budget , in order to enable the   pensioners   to lead a peaceful retired life.   It also pleaded for   exemption   from   income tax   on all   retirement benefits , including  lump sum payments   and monthly pension. VIDS Director P. Jegadish Gandhi had made the above representations in a memorandum sent to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The VIDS also pleaded for the following concessions for  senior citizens : raising the basic  income tax  exemption limit to Rs. five lakh for the salaried class; enhancing the reimbursement limit for exemption for medical reimbursement perquisites to Rs.50,000; raising the investment limit of Rs. one lakh for exemption from  income tax  under Section 80C, which was fixed in 2006-07 to at least Rs. 3 lakh in order to encourage investment in government savings.
