IPPB to Send and Receive Money on the Basis of Aadhaar Number

IPPB to Send and Receive Money on the Basis of Aadhaar Number



Your 12-digit Aadhaar number could soon become your single-point payment address.

With the help of India Post Payment Bank (IPPB), over 112 crore Indians will be able to send and receive money only on the basis of the Aadhaar number; it won't matter whether it is linked to a bank account or not.

India Post Payment Bank CEO AP Singh told that currently, Aadhaar is not a payment address in itself, but the payments bank, which plans to start operations from September 2017, will change that. The bank, which hopes to cover at least 650 districts of the country in the initial stage, aims to “simplify and universalise” payments systems.

“We will bring out a solution to make Aadhaar a payment address, which will work with or without a bank account. That means that people who already have an Aadhaar should be able to receive payment from any source,” Singh, who was part of the founding team of Aadhaar as the deputy director general of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), said. 

Can you send and receive money without a bank account? Aadhaar will make that possible

According to Singh, UIDAI had earlier successfully run a pilot with five banks including the State Bank of India to test the model. But the plans could not be taken ahead, he said, adding that given the state of broadband in the country and people’s lack of comfort with mobile applications, an Aadhaar-based payment method will make giving and receiving money easier.

Currently, about 40 crore bank accounts in the country are linked with Aadhaar, and every month about two crore people are linking their accounts with the unique number.

Singh had told ET earlier in an interview that the banks approach would be “bottoms-up” and it will target around 500 million people who have feature phones and around 350 million who are without any phone. “Our USP could be the door-to-door banking with the help of our postmen, which nobody else is doing,” he said.

IPPB's rival Paytm is yet to start its payments bank, but Airtel Payment Bank, launched in November last year, is luring customers with attractive interest rates and its wide reach through its telecom network.

7th Pay Commission Allowances – Only 7% increase has been factored in to Budget 2017-18

7th Pay Commission Allowances – Only 7% increase has been factored in to Budget 2017-18 – But the least increase recommended by 7th Pay Commission in HRA alone is more than 100%

While all Central Government Employees still believe increase in allowances based on recommendations of 7th Pay Commission is still on the cards, signs of Govt’s preparation towards the same are not encouraging.
For instance, the budget allocation made by the Govt towards Allowances payable in respect of Central Government Employees for the year 2017-18 is Rs. 69,221.70 Crores. Also, the Budget estimate with respect to allowances payable to Central Government Employees in the year 2016-17 has been revised to Rs. 64,677.43 crores.
So, the Govt expects that there will be an increase of 7% increase in the expenditure as a result of payment of various allowances to Central Government Employees in the year 2017-18 compared to the year 2016-17.
However, it is not clear whether Government has taken in to account the expected increase in the allowances on account of implementation of 7th Pay Commission, which is kept in abeyance in the pretext of examination of recommendation of the Commission on allowances by a Committee.
As this Allowances Committee has already taken 8 months to study the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission on allowances, it is expected to submit its views sooner or later atleast before the financial year 2017-18.
In that case, does the Govt believe that the Allowances Committee would only recommend an increase in allowances not more than 7% of what is being paid in 2016-17?
Remember, all the Allowances including the House Rent Allowance (HRA) are being paid now only in the old (6th CPC) Rates calculated on pre-revised Basic Pay.
Now, Let’s do a small calculation in respect of House Rent Allowance (HRA) alone, to acertain whether the increase in HRA recommended by 7th Pay Commission is only 7%.
6th CPC Pay in Pay Band = Rs. 23800
6th CPC Grade Pay = Rs. 5400
Total Basic Pay = Rs. 29200
HRA at the rate of 30% = Rs. 8760/-
7th Pay Commission Basic as against 6th CPC basic Pay of Rs. 29,200 = Rs. 75,600/- (Level 9 / Index 13 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix)
Rate of HRA recommended by 7th Pay Commission as against 30% HRA in old rate= 24%
Quantum expected HRA if 7th Pay Commission recommendation on HRA is accepted by Govt as such
= 75600 X 24/100
= Rs. 18,144/-
Increase in 7th CPC HRA compared to 6th CPC HRA=107%
The above illustration shows that the increase in amount that was allocated by Govt towards Allowances payable to Central Government Employees for the year 2017-18 to the extent of 7%, is never going to meet out the quantum of increase in allowances recommended by 7th Pay Commission.
Let’s hope Govt comes out with some meaningful revision of allocation in Budget 2017 towards allowances and implement a reasonable increase in Allowances, as the increase in allowances to be spelled out in the near future is not going change till 2026 (except for allowances that are linked with DA).

Allowances Committee may submit its report on 20th February 2017

Date : 18.2.2017

Allowances Committee may submit its report on 20th February 2017


Federation Leaders associated with National Council JCM are keep telling that Allowance Committee might submit its report on 20th February 2017. The CG Staff are already very much upset over the Government’s deliberate attempt to delay the payment of Allowances by constituting many committees. Because the payment of revised Allowances  is considered will impact the Governments Exchequers.Lot of Committees formed and Meetings held after the Notification issued for implementation of 7th CPC Recommendations. But there is no any fruitful outcome from these meetings. No sign of making decisions which satisfy the Central government employees.
Had the Allowance like HRA is paid in revised rates from the date of Notification ie 25th July 2016, it seems more beneficial than waiting for the subcommittee reports. Because if revised allowances are not given retrospective effect, it will be a huge loss for Central Government Servants.Reports suggests that the Allowance Committee may submit its report on 20th February 2017 and it will be notified with effect from 1st April 2017. Federation sources told that It is unacceptable and we will fight it out until the revised allowances implemented with effect from 1.1.2016

16th March 2017 strike is inevitable

Date : 18.2.2017
16th March 2017 strike is inevitable.
We are forced to go on a day's strike on 16thMarch 2017 due to the inaction of the Government.  Seven months have lapsed still the committee has not submitted any report.
A group of ministers comprising Home Minister Shri.Raj Nath Singh,  Finance Minister Shri. Arun Jaitley  & Railway Minister Shri. Suresh Prabhu called NJCA leaders on 30/06/2016 and assured that a high power committee will be constituted to look into the matter regarding revision of wages and fitment formula. Based on the assurance, the JCM Constituent deferred the Strike action to 06th July 2016.Though our Federation appealed PJCA to continue the strike as decided on July 11 2016, it was not considered in the larger interest of Central Government employees.
As assured a Committee was constituted under the chairmanship of Addl. Secretary (Exp), Ministry of Finance and discussions held, the response was very much disappointing. Against this we conducted a protest week from 12th December to 19th December 2016 and submitted a memorandum to our Honourable Prime Minister through state Governors as well as in his office, there is no response till date.
On 19/01/2017 A meeting was held with the Cabinet Secretary, Government of India, wherein Staff side secretary and the president were present.
The staff side explained Cabinet secretary about various Issues of the Central Government Employees pending at the Government level.  The main issues were NPS, Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula, Allowances, Pension and enhancing  Benchmark from good to Very Good.  The Cabinet Secretary informed staff side that, Pension issues have already been referred to the Cabinet, and the report of the Committee on Allowances is likely to be submitted in the next month.  It is not certain whether there will be any revision in minimum wage and Fitment formula & arrears of allowances from 01/01/2016.
Meanwhile, on 10.02.2017 NPS committee  has called the JCM Staff Side for a second round of discussion, during  the discussion they want to discuss only notified agenda, such as (1) scrapping of NPS (2) Guaranteed Minimum pension to NPS Pensioners  ie; 50% of the last pay drawn should be guaranteed by the Government as minimum pension, even if the returns from annuity insurance scheme amount is less than 50%.
Unfortunately, the main demand of Exemption of Central Govt. Employees from the purview of NPS, was not included in the agenda.
With regard to GDS,  our Federation and NUGDS warmly welcome the welfare measures which were recommended by Sri.Kamalesh Chandra committee. At the same time, our Federation strongly oppose the non‘Removal of 3 -A (I) of GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules, 2011.
Regarding Casual Labours, the revised wages and its arrears have not been paid in many Circles. 
In view of the above, we cannot remain silent just conducting a protest week and Dharna. As we have to show a strong protest against the attitude of the Government, the FNPO affiliates decided to go on a day`s strike on March 16th, 2017. 
We appeal all our colleagues to organise the one-day strike and make it a thundering success.

మీరు సుప్రీం కోర్టు లో కేసు వేయాలనుకుంటున్నారా!!
అయితే తాజాగా మధ్యతరగతి వారికోసం ఒక పథకాన్ని ప్రవేశపెట్టింది. దాని పూర్తి వివరాలు మీ కోసం....
సుప్రీంకోర్టులో కేసు వేయాలంటే.. అది చాలా ఖర్చుతో కూడుకున్న పనని భావిస్తాం. దీంతో చాలా మంది పేదలు.. మధ్యతరగతి ప్రజలు తమకు అన్యాయం జరిగినా.. సుప్రీంకోర్టుకు వెళ్లడానికి సాహసించరు. ఖర్చులు తడిసిమోపెడవుతాయని భయపడుతుంటారు. ఇకపై ఆ భయం లేదు. పేదలు, మధ్యతరగతి ప్రజలను దృష్టిలో ఉంచుకుని సుప్రీం కోర్టు ఒక ప్రత్యేక పథకాన్ని ప్రవేశపెట్టింది.
ఆ పథకం పేరు మధ్య ఆదాయ వర్గ (ఎంఐజీ) పథకం. నెలకు రూ.60 వేలలోపు, ఏడాదికి రూ.7.50 లక్షల లోపు ఆదాయం కలిగిన వారు ఈ పథకం పరిధిలోకి వస్తారు. వీరి కోసం సుప్రీంకోర్టు మధ్య ఆదాయ వర్గ న్యాయ సహాయ సొసైటీని ఏర్పాటు చేసింది. దీనికి భారత ప్రధాన న్యాయమూర్తి ప్యాట్రన ఇన చీఫ్‌గా, అటార్నీ జనరల్‌ ఎక్స్‌ అఫీషియో వైస్‌ ప్రెసిడెంట్‌గా, సొలిసిటర్‌ జనరల్‌ గౌరవ కార్యదర్శిగా, సుప్రీంకోర్టు సీనియర్‌ న్యాయవాదులు సభ్యులుగానూ ఉంటారు.
ఫీజులెంత..!
న్యాయం పొందాలనుకునే మధ్యతరగతి ప్రజలు రూ.500 సొసైటీకి, రూ.750 సర్వీస్‌ ఛార్జి కింద చెల్లించాలి. అనంతరం పిటిషన్‌ను సొసైటీలో దాఖలు చేయాలి. వీటిని అడ్వకేట్‌ ఆన రికార్డు (ఏఓఆర్‌)కు పంపిస్తారు. ఈ కేసు విచారణకు అర్హమైనదని ఏఓఆర్‌ భావిస్తే.. దీనిపై కోర్టులో వాదనలు వినిపించేందుకు ఒక న్యాయవాదికి బాధ్యతలను సొసైటీ అప్పగిస్తుంది. పిటిషన న్యాయ వివాదానికి అర్హమైనది కాదని ఏఓఆర్‌ నిర్ణయిస్తే సర్వీస్‌ ఛార్జి కింద వసూలు చేసిన రూ.750 మినహాయించుకుని మిగతా సొమ్మును వెనక్కు ఇచ్చేస్తారు. సొసైటీ ద్వారా సుప్రీంకోర్టులో దాఖలయ్యే కేసులు సాధారణ కేసుల్లాగే విచారణకు వస్తాయి.
తీర్పు ఎలా వస్తుంది..!
తీర్పు ఎలా వచ్చినా దాంతో సొసైటీకి సంబంధం ఉండదు. కేసు దాఖలు చేయటం, న్యాయవాదిని ఎంపిక చేసుకోవటంలో మాత్రమే సొసైటీ సహకరిస్తుంది. సుప్రీంకోర్టును ఆశ్రయించటం అనేది ఖర్చుతో కూడుకున్న వ్యవహారం అయిన నేపథ్యంలో సాధారణ ఫీజుతోనే తమ వివాదాలను సుప్రీంకోర్టు దృష్టికి తీసుకొచ్చి న్యాయం పొందే అవకాశాన్ని ప్రజలకు ఇవ్వాలన్నదే సొసైటీ ఉద్దేశం.కేసును చేపట్టిన న్యాయవాది నిర్లక్ష్యం వహిస్తున్నాడని నిరూపణ అయితే సుప్రీంకోర్టు సదరు న్యాయవాదిని పథకం ప్యానెల్‌ నుంచి తొలగిస్తుంది

7th Pay Commission: Why is Narendra Modi government dilly dallying to implement higher allowances?

In last one year a lot have been spoken about the higher allowances under the 7th pay Commission by the Union Government officials and along with several other members of various central government employees union. But it is strange that an important issue – on employees higher allowances – has now been strangely absent from the government agenda, due to which there is no final outcome.

The real question which comes in front of central government employees is that after the approval of 7th Pay Commission recommendations on July 1, 2016; Why is Narendra Modi government is dilly-dallying to implement the recommendations under the higher allowances?

Some reports suggest that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had first claimed that the higher allowances must be implemented after four months of the basic pay hike but it failed to come true. Some suggest that complicated bureaucracy is stopping the government to implement higher allowances.

Almost 15 months have passed since the Union Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was given a detailed report on 7th Pay Commission and seven months have elapsed since the Union Cabinet approved the 7CPC recommendations for salary hike of central government employees, but the government is still dilly dallying for the higher allowances.

The government has decided to give higher basic pay in August 2016 with arrears, which will be effective from January 1, 2016, to its employees on the recommendations of a high-powered committee headed by retired judge Ashok Lavasa. But the hike in allowances other than dearness allowance referred to the high-powered committee recommended of abolishing 51 allowances and subsuming 37 others out of 196 allowances.

As per now, the central government employees are paid allowances according to the 6th Pay Commission recommendations until issuing of higher allowances notification. In October 2016, Ashok Lavasa said, “We are ready to submit our report, whenever Finance Minister Arun Jaitley calls up”.
But the union government gave an extension to the high-powered committee up to February 22, 2017, on the pretext of demonetisation and the government said that the cash crunch was the reason behind the delay in announcing higher allowances.

The announcement of assembly elections in five states has given an excuse for the government as it cannot announce pay hikes till the model code of conduct is in place up to March 8. The government is using delaying tactics to save the government money to pay higher allowances without arrears from August 16.

Also, the delay in the implementation of higher allowances has caused tremendous frustration among employees. There are chances that the BJP led NDA government may face a backlash in the assembly elections in the five states, two of which is ruled by the party either directly or in an alliance.
