Why delay in submitting Allowance Committee Report – Govt Reply on 24.3.2017

Report of Committee on Allowances



Shri . Chandrakant Raghunath patil, MP, has raised some important questions  in Rajya Sabha regarding delay in submitting Allowance Committee Report. These are the questions that every Central govt staff wants to know the answers from Central Government.

The questions are …

(a) whether the Committee on Allowances set up by the Government to examine the issues of allowances to Central Government employees consequent upon implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission has sought extension of time for submitting its report;

(b) if so, the details thereof along with the reasons for delay in submitting its report without obtaining the approval of the Government for extension;

(c) the steps taken/being taken to ensure that the Committee does not adopt any lackadaisical approach and the Government decides the matter expeditiously; and

(d) the approximate time period may be required by the Government to take a final decision upon receipt of the said report?

Shri. Arjun Ram Meghwal, The Minister of state in the Ministry of Finance has submitted the following answer to the above questions.

(a) to (d): The Committee on Allowances has been constituted vide order dated 22.07.2016. The Committee is to examine and make recommendations as to whether any changes in the recommendations of the 7th CPC relating to allowances are warranted and if so, in what form. The Committee has received a large number of demands on allowances and even now receives demands in this regards.

All the demands have been diligently examined. The Committee has already held 13 meetings so far and interacted with the representatives of Central Nodal Ministries, National Council (Staff Side), Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM) and officers and representatives of employee associations of Ministry of Health and Family welfare, Home Affairs, Railways, Defence and Department of Posts.

Parliament has right to decide on members’ salaries: Govt




The Government has asserted “it is the sacrosanct right of Parliament” to decide on the perks and salaries of its members. Parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar’s statement in the Lok Sabha on Friday came two days after the Supreme Court issued a notice to the Election Commission and the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha secretariats on whether those who have been legislators for a single day were entitled to pensions and allowances. 

“I think every member of the House agrees that the right of the House is sacrosanct. Parliament has every right to decide about salaries and allowances of MPs,” Kumar said and many MPs in the House approved his stand. “The entire House is with you on this issue,” he added as a remark to the Speaker, the custodian of the House. 

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley too made a similar statement in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday. Both were responding to some MPs who pointed out to the Supreme Court notice following a petition filed by an NGO. 

Raising the issue in the Lower House, Trinamool congress member Saugata alleged that while the apex court was “transgressing” its rights, Parliament was not asking why former judges were being given pension. 

“The Supreme Court is transgressing its rights. It is an exclusive right of Parliament to decide on the issue. We are not asking why SC judges are being paid pension. We should take a stand on the issue,” he said. 

After hearing preliminary arguments by NGO Lok Prahari, whose plea was rejected by the Allahabad High Court earlier, Justice Jasti Chelameswar had said on Wednesday that the court could not do much about pensionary entitlements of legislators but would address the unstructured nature of the allowances they were entitled to. 

Justice Chelameswar said there was nothing in wrong in former lawmakers getting some sort of pension but the court would ensure that some sort of norms and guidelines were laid down on entitlement to all allowances even after legislators had lost their seats.
